By DEREK GILLIAM dgilliam@lakecityreporter.com Sand may not look expensive, but when bought by the ton it adds up. When PotashCorp-White Springs agreed to donate tons of sand to Columbia County, the gift saved the county about $300,000 on its land fill construction costs. County work crews have been excavat ing a new dumping cell at the Winfield Solid Waste Facility, 1347 NW Oosterhoudt Lane. The sand is required by the state Department of Environmental Protection, and goes on top of a landfill liner.

Although she was small, she was known as Mighty Catherine once she mounted her horse. Following the tragedy, Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses of Lake City made a trip to Newtown, Conn., and Sandy Hook Elementary School to con sole the families of those lost. During Tropical Storm Debby in 2012, a foal was born at Gentle Carousel. With the blessing of Catherine Hubbards par ents, the filly was named Catherine in her memory. Later this month, By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com The Columbia County Tax Collectors office is in its delinquent taxes phase for all prop erty own ers who havent paid their 2012 prop erty taxes.

According to informa tion from the tax collectors Office, the 2012 taxes were 83 percent collected through March 31. Brannon said the total tax billing for 2012 was $51,888,781, and his office collected $43,123,228 of that through March. The taxing authorities in Columbia County are: Columbia County Board of County Commissioners, Columbia County School Board, Suwannee River Water Management District, Lake Shore Hospital Authority and the Industrial Development Authority. City residents also pay taxes to the City of Lake City. March 31 was the last day to pay 2012 property taxes without penalty. Because that date fell on a Sunday, the deadline was extended to Monday.

Internet cafe ban passes By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE State leg islators voted overwhelmingly Thursday to ban storefront gaming operations, a quick response to a scandal that led to dozens of arrests and the lieuten ant governors resignation. The bill is now headed to the desk of Gov. Rick Scott, who said he will sign it. The operations, commonly called Internet cafes, allow customers to play sweep stakes games that simulated slot machines. It took a serious event, a very serious event, to bring attention to what we needed to do, said Sen. John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine, one of the sponsors of the ban. The state Senate approved the measure on a 36-4 vote Thursday. The state House had already approved it. The Legislature is feeling pres sure to act after an investigation into the Allied Veterans of the World charity. It was accused of running a $290 million illegal gam bling business that directed most of the proceeds into its owners pockets. Law enforcement author ities last month arrested nearly 60 people affiliated with Allied. Former Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, who had done consulting work for the charity when she was still a member of the Legislature, Gov. Scott says he will sign the measure when it gets to him.

AROUND FLORIDA Authorities: Man kidnaps his sons TAMPA — Authorities in several states on Thursday searched for two young boys believed to have been kidnapped by their father from their maternal grandparents’ Florida home after their grandmother was tied up. During a news conference, an FBI agent and a colonel with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office said tips about 4-year-old Cole Hakken and 2-year-old Chase Hakken have poured in from several states. Authorities say the boys’ father, 35-year-old Joshua Michael Hakken, entered his moth-er-in-law’s house north of Tampa, tied her up and fled with the children. They said the children could be in a black 2006 GMC pickup owned by their father. “It’s the manner in which the kids were taken that concerns law enforce-ment,” FBI Special Agent Dave Couvertier said. Officials say Hakken and the children’s mother, 34-year-old Sharyn Patricia Hakken, are the prime suspects in the abduction. An earlier news release said “both suspects are anti-government and have attempted a previous abduction at gun point in Louisiana,” but Couvertier said officials are focused on the kids and not the parents’ political views.Ex-lt. gov. talks about resignation JACKSONVILLE — Former Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll said Thursday she had no idea law enforce-ment was investigat-ing a veter-ans charity accused of running illegal slot machine-style casinos until two agents walked into her office last month. Carroll said the agents told her she wasn’t under investigation and asked her about Allied Veterans of the World, a group she had done public relations for before becoming lieu-tenant governor. When the agents walked out about 20 minutes later, Gov. Rick Scott’s chief of staff was waiting outside her office. He told her Scott wanted her to resign. She said yes — there was no discus-sion, no hesitation. “In my military time, when the commander in chief makes a demand or a request, you say ‘Aye, aye sir,’ and you march on. And that’s what I did,” she said in her first comments about the investigation. “I thought it would be bet-ter to remove myself from being a distraction.” Carroll said she was paid $6,000 a month to do public relations work for Allied Veterans and had nothing to do with the alleged gambling.UF: Patients’ IDs possibly stolen GAINESVILLE — The University of Florida has notified almost 15,000 patients of a medical clinic that they may have fallen victim to identity theft. Letters were sent Tuesday to 14,339 patients of UF & Shands Family Medicine at Main follow-ing the arrest of a man who once worked at the clinic. According to news reports, 25-year-old Arthur Thomas was arrested Tuesday following an investigation that began in October. A Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office report says Thomas was stopped for speeding and officers found a duffel bag with about 1,600 personal iden-tities on a computer-gener-ated appointment informa-tion sheet. The university says patients at the practice between March 2009 and October 2012 may be victims. “ Thought for Today ” “Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week.” — Spanish proverb. Beyonce, Jay-Z turn heads in Havana HAVANA B eyonce and Jay-Z caused a big stir in Havana as they marked their fifth wedding anniversary Thursday. R&B’s power couple was mobbed by dozens of well-wishers at the renowned restaurant La Guarida on Wednesday night, and police had to step in to keep the crowds at bay. La Guarida staffers showed The Associated Press pictures of the two dining on typical Cuban creole favor-ites — fish, chicken, black beans and rice — accompanied by their moth-ers. The privately run restaurant is famous as the filming location for the hit movie “Strawberry and Chocolate,” and is a mainstay on Havana’s tourist circuit. Waitress Silvia Fernandez said Beyonce toured the eatery and looked at photos of past celebrity clients: Jack Nicholson, Jodie Foster, Danny Glover, Will Smith, James Belushi and more. Their bodyguards’ presence outside set the gritty, bustling neighbor-hood of Center Havana abuzz, and a crowd gathered downstairs shouting Beyonce’s name until she went to a balcony and waved. Police arrived and made sure she was able to exit without incident. “She was beautiful, without a drop of makeup, very natural,” waitress Silvia Fernandez said. “What hap-pened with the people was incred-ible.”Famed movie critic Roger Ebert dies CHICAGO — Roger Ebert, the most famous and most popular film reviewer of his time who became the first journalist to win a Pulitzer Prize for movie criticism and, on his long-running TV program, wielded the nation’s most influential thumb, died Thursday. He was 70. Ebert, who had been a film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times since 1967, died early Thursday afternoon at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, his office said. He had announced on his blog Wednesday that he was undergoing radiation treatment after a recurrence of can-cer. He had no grand theories or special agendas, but millions recog-nized the chatty, heavy-set man with wavy hair and horn-rimmed glasses. Above all, they followed the thumb — pointing up or down. It was the main logo of the televised shows Ebert co-hosted, first with the late Gene Siskel of the rival Chicago Tribune and — after Siskel’s death in 1999 — with his Sun-Times col-league Richard Roeper. Although criticized as gimmicky and simplistic, a “two thumbs up” accolade was sure to find its way into the advertis-ing for the movie in question.New report: Rapper Ross shot at in Jan. FORT LAUDERDALE — A new police report says two witnesses saw a car pull alongside a Rolls Royce driven by rapper Rick Ross earlier this year in South Florida and heard numerous gunshots fired before the car crashed into a near-by building. The Fort Lauderdale police report released Thursday says witnesses saw three or four people inside an older model, burgundy or maroon BMW before the shots rang out. Neither Ross nor his girlfriend, fashion designer Shateria L. Moragne-el, was injured.

resigned after she was interviewed as part of that same investigation. She has not been accused of any wrongdoing. A handful of legislators opposed the bill because they said it went too far and would also result in the closure of senior arcades. Sen. Miguel Diaz de la Portilla, R-Miami, said leg-islators were responding to what he called “mass hysteria” surrounding that investigation. “This broad net is going to affect a lot of innocent people,” said Diaz de la Portilla, who still wound up voting for the bill. But Thrasher said lawmakers were making sure that “unscrupulous opera-tors” were not taking advantage of loopholes in order to carry out illegal gambling. The storefront operations started sprouting around the state within the last six years amid debates over their legality. The game makers argued they were legal sweepstakes because there’s a predeter-mined number of winners, similar to a McDonald’s Monopoly game or Coca-Cola’s cap contest. Unlike slot machines run at casi-nos, the operations were not heavily regulated. Authorities said the “Internet cafe” was set up like this: Customers buy Internet or phone time on a card and can check email and surf the Web on any number of computers. But instead of doing that, custom-ers play games such as “Captain Cash” and “Lucky Shamrocks” and players are encouraged to spend more to win more, investigators said. Florida allows slot machines in casinos run by the Seminole Tribe of Florida and at dog and horse tracks in South Florida. The bill being sent to Scott makes it clear that machines that simu-late slot machines or other casino type games are ille-gal elsewhere in the state. The legislation also puts limits on sweepstakes and states that arcades cannot award gift cards or cash to winners. It also states that arcades are supposed to be operating coin-oper-ated games that involve an element of skill not casino-styled games. Senior arcades rely on the gift cards and their operators have said that the measure would most likely put them out of business. Gale Fontaine, president of an association that represents senior arcades, said she was “disappoint-ed and disheartened” by the vote and predicted it would not only harm adult amusement centers but could also impact arcades run by chains like Chuck E. Cheese. “Seniors and children are being punished despite following the rules and providing a safe place for entertainment,” Fontaine said in a statement. “It’s highly disappointing to see the Legislature punish our seniors for the misdeed of Internet cafe operators.” By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City man was arrested after admitting to sexual activity with a 14-year-old girl to Columbia County Sheriff’s deputies Wednesday, authorities said. Constantinos “Gus” Robert Panagopoulos, 21, 4905 NE Gumswamp Road, faces charges of lewd or lascivious battery on a child between the ages of 12 and 16 years old and possession of obscene material, according to a Sheriff’s Office arrest report. The victim’s guardian contacted the sheriff’s office on Sunday and told deputies the victim “had been sexually active with a 21-year-old male.” The victim was interviewed by sheriff’s investigators, and she told inves-tigators she had been talk-ing with Panago_poulos for about two months, and had been dating him for about two weeks, the arrest report said. She also said she sent photos to Pangopoulos’ phone, which deputies took as evidence. The 14-year-old told investigators that all con-tact with Pangopoulos was consensual, the report said. Panagopoulos confessed to investigators and was arrested, the report said. He was taken to Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $11,000 bond. LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 5 & 6, 2013 3A3A Columbia’s Top Talent show tonight COURTESYCatherine, a foal named for one of the children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., leaps ov er an obstacle during training at the Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horse facility. By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comThe winners of three local talent shows will compete for the Golden Voice Trophy at the ninth annual Columbia’s Top Talent show today at the Columbia High School auditorium. The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the show will start at 6. Ronnie Collins, CHS school security officer, organized the first Columbia’s Top Talent show nine years ago, and crowned two winners because the judges couldn’t decide who was bet-ter. Adam Sanders and Jamee King tied for first place in that first show and were the first to have their names etched onto the Golden Voice trophy. “The trophy has nine names on it now, and I will add another after the show,” Collins said. The talent show focuses on county students who can dance and sing, and the money raised goes back to the schools, Collins said. Collins spends his free time organizing the shows. Throughout the year, Columbia’s Top Talent holds other shows at county schools. This year, Richardson and Lake City middle schools, Fort White middle and high schools and CHS held separate talent shows. “It takes a whole year to put it all together,” he said. The winners of the individual schools’ talent shows will com-pete today. Other special guests Collins finds in the community also will perform, but only the students are competing for the trophy. The cost at the doors will be $5 for students and $10 for adults. Collins sponsors the CHS step club, and some of the proceeds go to fund the club, he said. Money from the events also go to the participating schools. “The idea of the show is to give the youth a chance to showcase their musical talents,” Collins said. “Come out and, trust me, you won’t be disappointed.” PanagopoulosCity man faces sex offense charge LANDFILL: Sand donation saves big money Continued From Page 1A— has been removed from the dumping area, the land-fill liner, also required by FDEP, will be installed. The sand then will go on top of the landfill liner as a sort of cushion. County Operations Manager Kevin Kirby said work crews have been excavating the new cell for about seven months. He said the solid waste facility had three cells in which waste was collected, but cell one and cell two are full, and cell three is nearly full. Kirby said the new cell should be complete well before cell three is full. The typical lifespan of a landfill cell is about 15 years, he said. The new cell is about 9.3 acres and was estimated to cost about $3.5 million to build. Kirby said because county workers dug cell four, it saved the county about $1.3 million. Parts of the new cell are 34-feet deep. County Manager Dale Williams said at Tuesday’s county commission meet-ing that the donation by PotashCorp-White Springs could save the county about $300,000. He said county crews will haul the sand after the county buys the necessary liability insurance for doing work on PotashCorp’s property. About 2,200 dump truck loads are needed to haul the sand to the solid waste facility, Kirby said. The project is scheduled to be complete by August. Mike Williams, public affairs manager for PotashCorp, said the sand is produced during the mining process. The earth removed at a PotashCorp mine contains phosphate, clay and sand. The phosphate is used in making fertilizer and the sand and clay are used by the company for reclama-tion. Sometimes the company has excess material after reclamation. Williams said when possible they allow that material to be used for community purposes. “We try and be good community stewards,” Mike Williams said. “We aren’t able to field every request, but we try when we can.” TAXES: Unpaid property tax notices being sent Continued From Page 1Aper parcel. All parcels unpaid by May 3 will have tax sale certificates issued against them. A tax sale certificate issued does not mean a person has lost title to the property. A tax certificate is an interest-bearing lien on property for unpaid taxes. The lien will accumulate interest every month until either the lien is satisfied or a tax deed application is requested. Once a tax deed is more than two years old, the property that has unpaid taxes is sold to the highest bidder. After a tax deed has been issued, a prop-erty owner will loses the property. Property owners can pay their 2012 property taxes in June or later, but additional fees and interest will apply. BAN: Bill goes to Scott Continued From Page 1A HORSES: Gentle Carousel returning to Conn. Continued From Page 1ACatherine, Magic and another min-iature therapy horse from Gentle Carousel are scheduled to return to Newtown. Debbie Bengochea, Gentle Carousel education director, said they will leave April 15 for Newtown. Bengochea and Gentle Carousel volunteers and horses met with Catherine Hubbard’s parents and her brother in December following the tragedy. “They really were so excited about the horse being named after Catherine and, of course, it has the same hair color and little freckles on her face like Catherine had,” Bengochea said. “They were very excited, and they said they were honored and she (Catherine) would have been thrilled to know there was a horse named after her.” Catherine Hubbard’s favorite color was pink and Catherine, the Gentle Carousel horse, will wear a pink hal-ter when she visits the Sandy Hook children. Gentle Carousel is having a trail ride fundraiser on April 14 at The Oaks Equestrian Center. “What we’re going to be doing this time, which is a little different, is stopping at children’s hospitals along the way,” Bengochea said. Stops will include visits at the St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., as well as a stop at the Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn. The horses are expected to make visits to the acute care unit at Vanderbilt. “We’re going to be in the Newtown, Conn., area about a week, and our trip is going to be about two weeks,” Bengochea said. “We’re going to make some make-a-wish visits on the way, and in Nashville, we’ve got some country singers that are putting on a con-cert for us to pay for our trip. They kind of planned it on their own and contacted us.” The return to Newtown will be fulfilling a promise made in December. “We promised that we would come back,” Bengochea said. “We also really wanted to bring Catherine back to the school. We’ve got chil-dren that used to ride with Catherine Hubbard who will be able to follow this Catherine’s training for the next couple of years as she trains to become a therapy horse. We promised them we would come back after Spring Break, and we keep our promises.” In addition to visiting the Newtown area, Bengochea said, the trip will also give them the oppor-tunity to visit other people who requested visits from the horses. The horses provided therapy for adults and children following a trag-edy. “We heard that USA Today wrote an article, and when they inter-viewed people, they said they felt like it was the first time they’d seen the children laughing and excited about something, and they felt like it was the beginning of healing,” she said.

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 The state has a vested interest in protect-ing the integrity of high school sports. Requiring student-athletes to play at their assigned schools levels the playing field in athletic competitions across the state. And the sanctioning rules serve a broader societal benefit by impressing upon thousands of Florida students every year the ideals of honesty and fair play. But leg-islation moving through the Legislature would open the door even more to the sleazy, all-too-familiar prac-tice of openly recruiting these students across school boundaries. The bill is a power grab by lawmakers that would serve only to further corrupt the system. Supporters say HB 1279 is meant to give studentathletes due process protection when they are faced with allegations of playing for a school outside their assigned zone. They argue the legislation brings some much-needed accountability to the state’s sanctioning body, the Florida High School Athletic Association, a nonprofit founded a century ago that state law recognizes as the governing body for high school athletics. But those descriptions are as inaccurate as they are self-serving. The bill would make it nearly impossible for the association to police the comings and goings of student-athletes, leaving it to the very schools and coaches who have abused the system for years to self-report. Students would not be declared ineligible to play unless they were found to have “intentionally and knowingly” falsified a residency document. Students and parents could tie the association up in knots by claiming an innocent mistake. The association also could not suspend a student from playing until after the case was heard and formally decided upon by the Division of Administrative Hearings, a process that could easily take months and extend far beyond the end of a sport’s playing season. The legislation would end the association’s role of being an independent arbiter of student eligibil-ity rules that are agreed to by its own members, both public and private schools. The board’s cur-rent, 16-member board of directors would be ousted by September and replaced by a 25-member board, nearly half of which would be appointed by the Senate president, House speaker and commissioner of edu-cation. The education commissioner would also hire and fire the association’s executive director. And the bill would cut the director’s salary and bar such perks as a cellular phone or automobile allowance. The last thing the association needs to become is a political patronage operation. There are plenty of ways for the Legislature to ensure that the association lives by its existing due process protections without blocking it from enforcing the residency rules altogether. This petty legislation is a full-fledged attack on a group that is chartered in Florida to promote a legitimate public interest. The government has no need to take over this institution, much less undermine the integrity of high school athletics. The House ... should kill a bill that would contribute to cheating and send the wrong message to Florida’s youth. Power grab on high school athletics H ow important are the choices you make every day? Choices can bring us happiness and success; or misery, failure, and yes… even death! Wouldn’t you want an even happier, more successful, satisfying, and fulfilled life? What you choose to do with your time and your life makes the difference, and makes you the person you are. What are your choices? What can you do? How does it work? If you do happy, fulfilling, selfdevelopment things, you will feel happier and more fulfilled. The way you think, and the choices you make, influence what you will do and what you will become. What you do influences how you feel. Yes; it’s true: We all have our limitations. But, your limitations don’t have to stop you. Last week on the local WCJB news channel I saw a story about a dancer named Chelsie, who was paralyzed in a tragic accident and confined to a wheelchair three years ago. She has put all her efforts into her reha-bilitation. She found “wheelchair dancing,” and is making an astound-ing recovery and enjoying an increasingly good life for herself. Research shows us that you can do more than you think you can do. Every time you do something, you increase your ability to do it better the next time. And, your attitude is all important: If you think you can, or if you think you can’t, you’re right—either way! Your potential actually changes when you think you can, and try. Focus on think-ing about what you could do, not on your limitations. Confined to a wheelchair or a bed? You might still be able to stretch, or do some simple exercises to build some strength and develop your capabili-ties. It’s a start. Why do it? Whatever your situation, wouldn’t you like a better life for yourself? Maybe a happier, more fulfilled, more meaningful life? You’re worth it. Your life is the most valuable thing you’ve got. And, it’s valuable to those close to you, and to all of us! What are some things you can do? Dream bigger! Fantasize. What would you like to reach for? It’s probably not out of your reach. Talk it over with someone close to you, who can think positively and be supportive. Trust me, that these principles are real. They work. This isn’t just a “pep talk.” What do you want to reach for? Give it a try. I’d like to hear what you’re trying, and I’d like to hear about your results, at Bob.Denny8@gmail.com.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com A clean and dependable supply of water is vital to our environment, economy and quality of life, today and into the future. Water conservation is the most important step that each of us can take to meet our future water needs and sustain our fragile water resources, such as our springs. That is why I am committed to fos-tering a water conservation ethic throughout the Suwannee River Water Management District. We can all be part of the solution by doing our part to conserve our precious water resources. Every drop does matter. SRWMD is emphasizing water conservation education and other efforts to assist in instilling a water conservation ethic for everyone to embrace. SRWMD places an emphasis on water conservation for all water users on a year-round basis. Large users, including agri-culture, commercial, industrial and public supply, are required to imple-ment water conservation measures. In addition, SRWMD assists our water users in implementing water conservation and efficient use proj-ects through a variety of programs. For example, this fiscal year the SRWMD has established cost-share programs to assist agriculture pro-ducers and local governments in the protection of water resources and water conservation efforts. As a result, farmers and ranchers are participating to reduce groundwater pumping by an estimated 1,976 mil-lion gallons of water annually, and local governments are estimated to conserve about 160 million gallons of water per year. This is an excel-lent start, but we expect that future years will yield additional annual savings as water conservation tech-nologies continue to improve. We have also realized success in our partnerships with local govern-ments to beneficially reuse waste-water to offset groundwater with-drawals. SRWMD has partnered with cities throughout our region to implement reclaimed water pro-grams. Approximately 9.6 million gallons of groundwater is saved each day through these partner-ships. We also celebrate the water conservation accomplishments of our large industrial water users who have reduced groundwater pumping through process improvements by over 20 million gallons of water per day. Our commitment to water conservation is stronger than ever before. In March, the SRWMD’s governing board adopted a proc-lamation recognizing April as Water Conservation Month, joining Florida in this traditional effort. We encouraged all local govern-ments within our region to join us in promoting water conservation by adopting a similar proclamation. So far we have 100 percent participa-tion from our 15 counties and have received word that several cities and towns have adopted a proclama-tion as well. Local governments are recognized on our website at www.mysuwanneeriver.com for their sup-port. In addition, we are encourag-ing schools within SRWMD to learn about water conservation during the month of April. The SRWMD has provided resources for teachers and ideas for student projects on our website. Participating schools will be recognized on our website and at our board meeting on May 16. There is much more to be done. Collectively we are all responsible for water conservation, and togeth-er, we make a difference. We can all do our part to protect our pre-cious water resources by practicing and promoting water conservation measures, both indoors and out-doors, at home and at work. Thank you for working together with us to conserve water and protect our water resources.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, April 5 & 6, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A 6AF&V Go to Bible study to learnW hy do you go to a Bible study? Regardless of where it takes place, what do you want to accomplish by attending the Bible study? Cornelius, the centurion, gathered his family and friends to his house because Peter was coming to speak to them. Once Peter arrived at the house of Cornelius, Peter was told by Cornelius that they were “all here present before God to hear all that you have been commanded by the Lord” (Acts 10:33). The angel told Cornelius that Peter would “speak words to [Cornelius] by which you will be saved, you and all your household” (Acts 11:14). These two verses give us two good reason why we should get together, wherever, and study the Bible. Peter had received a commandment from the Lord that he (along with the other apostles) was to “go into all the world and preach the gospel” (Mark 16:15). Jesus had told them the things which they were tell the people. If no action is expected, then why give the command? The second thing Cornelius told Peter was that the angel said Peter would tell them words by which they would be saved. This implies that the members of the house of Cornelius were not saved prior to Peter arriving at the house of Cornelius. All those in atten-dance to hear Peter needed to be saved. When we come together for a Bible study we need to hear about the same things, namely, things commanded by God and words by which we will be saved. We need to hear about things which will tell us what we need to do to obey God as well as tell us what we need to hear in order to save our souls. Our study time needs to be consumed with the text of the Bible. We need to be examining the things which are said, how they are said, to whom they are said and why they are said. We need to make sure that we have all the facts of a story in our mind. This will build our faith. It will cause us to have more conviction about the things which we believe. In the days of the first century, there were people who had the belief that you had to have special knowledge in order to properly understand the word of God. John the apostle in his first epistle deals with this subject and basically says that everyone can understand the word of God and can apply it to their life. If we were to have special knowledge where would we get that special knowledge? How would we know that we have that special knowledge? How would we know if the source of our “special knowledge” is really accurate? Group Bible studies can be very profitable! They allow a large number of people to be taught at the same time. When conducted properly by the Bible teacher, the class can be very enjoyable to all in attendance. Everyone can learn what God has commanded and they can learn what they need to do to be saved. It is my desire that you go to a Bible study where you learn about the commandments of God and the things which you need to do to be saved. It is my wish that the teacher motivates you to want to learn more about the commandments of God and the things by which you can be saved. Learning from the Bible what to do to obey God and how to save your soul is worth the time to study. Bible study can be very enjoyable as well as profitable. I Thessalonians 2:3-6 (NKJ): “For our exhortation did not come from error or uncleanness, nor was it in deceit. But as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts. For neither at any time did we use flattering words, as you know, nor a cloak for covet-ousness—God is witness. Nor did we seek glory from men, either from you or from oth-ers, when we might have made demands as apostles of Christ.” The heading in my Bible above Chapter 2 is “The Male Servant and His Rewards”. I recommend that the whole chapter be stud-ied. Does the church as a whole today have a lack of Biblical leadership? According to the Word of God, the answer is yes. Paul gave a great example in these verses on how a Pastor ought to lead his flock. Notice I said, lead his flock, not be lead by the flock. Verse 3, Paul says his calling (exhortation) did not come from error or deceit, but as Verse 4 says, he was approved by God and entrusted with the gospel, “not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts”. O. S. Hawkins wrote: “There is the style of pastor who leads by public consensus. This per-son does not take a stand until he can get a read on what the people are thinking. Man pleas-ing is what this is; those who do nothing until they know it makes the most people happy. In others words Paul said he was not a smooth talking preacher who tried to make a good impression in order to gain favor with the people. The second style is that pastor that leads by personal convic-tion. Hawkins said “Those who lead by personal conviction have convictions deep in the fiber of their being about what is right or wrong and they lead that way, come what may. Those who lead by public consensus lead people to do whatever the people want to do. Those who lead by per-sonal conviction lead people to do what the people need to do”. Paul said that he did not come with flattering speech. This presents the picture of a hypocrite, in other words those who do that are concealing their real motives. Today there are so many who say they come in the name of God, but are no more than religious racketeers. Mac Brunson, pastor of First Baptist Church of Jacksonville, wrote: “The how of leadership is critical. How do we lead the peo-ple of God? What manner, shape, and fashion does our leadership take? The Word of God gives clear instructions about the manner of leadership.” Here is what he suggests: “We lead most effectively when we lead from humility” Acts 20:18-19. “… when we lead from gentleness” I Thessalonians 2:7&11. “We lead best when we lead without par-tiality” I Timothy 5:21. “We lead most effectively when we lead with decisiveness” 2 Corinthians 1:17. “…when we understand timing” Ecclesiastes 3:1&3. “….when we keep our heads” 2 Timothy 4:5. “….when we are trustworthy” I Corinthians 4:2. A leader must remember that he is also a servant. Jesus is our great picture of a servant.

I was with dad, as he held his hand, we bowed and prayed together that God would intervene and heal. Praying helped as a calm smile came to “John’s” face. He thanked us for taking the time to come by and just talk and pray. While serving as a local minister, Dad told me he devoted one day each week to visitation. He got up early, had breakfast and did not return home till he finished visiting those who needed to be seen. He visited shut-ins, those in the nursing homes, and hospitals. He visited the discouraged and spiritually weak, as well as those who were grouchy and complaining. Looking back, I remember times when Dad and I went together to visit the sick and shut-ins. I remember times when I felt uncomfortable. I didn’t know what to say to someone dying of cancer, or someone who had just lost a loved one, but dad always seemed to know what to do and what to say. He said, “Jack, just being there, offering a prayer, helps.” Some feel prayer is a waste of time, (and it may very well be for those who believe God does not work today), but dad believed God answered prayer and so do I. Does prayer help? Yes. Are people healed as a result of God answering prayers? Yes. There are so many instances in both the Old and New testa-ments where people pray, and God responded. I have also “seen” God work in my life in answer to prayer as well as in the lives of other Christians who are strong in prayer. I have seen the effect that prayer has in the Christian. Do you believe in miracles? Yes. If not, then why pray? Do I believe there is still a need for “signs and wonders” to prove the scriptures? No. You can read the Gospels as well as Acts and see that there are plenty of “signs and wonders” done and recorded to prove the Scriptures are inspired. The fact is that God works. Our doctors can only go so far, do so much — medicine, sur-gery, treatments all are impor-tant and helpful — but these are limited in results. Doctors admit, they can only do so much, and many pray before and after performing surgery for God to guide their hands. The fact is, “there is a God in Heaven, and I’m not Him.” He alone knows what is best, and can and does answer the prayers of those who depend on Him. James says, “Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any sick among you? Let him call the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anoint-ing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up: and if he have committed any sins, they shall be forgiven him.” (James 5:13-15) Jack Exum Jr.jackexumjr@yahoo.com Q Jack Exum Jr. Is a freelance writer who lives in Lake City.

Right about now I would start hoping this letter was deliv-ered to the wrong address and wonder who in their right mind would rejoice about suffering? But then you read on: “…that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed … for it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God: and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?”(1 Peter 4:12-13,17) According to this passage, we can rejoice in suffering when our priority is God’s glory rather than our own comfort. As humans we can get so engrossed in making our own nest comfortable we may grow immune to the suffering of the rest of the world. We become callous to the fact that many people (even our own friends and family) are walking through this life and into eternity with-out ever having met Christ. This time of hardship facing our country is a golden opportunity to realize that the luxury sur rounding us will not last, nor will it satisfy. Sadly, this luxury has only served to blind us to the reality that we need God. It is comforting to me that this passage tells us not to be surprised at the trials we are going through. This means it didn’t catch God not looking. In His love for us, He will allow us to suffer the consequences of our own choices, not to punish us, but to motivate us to choose Him. With this motivation, perhaps we will again choose Him as our founding fathers did when they established this “One Nation Under God.” As Christians, we have spent too many generations looking out for our own interests and grow-ing callous to the immorality around us, shrugging it off as someone else’s problem. Now the result of that indifference is sitting squarely on our door-steps. What will we do? According to this passage, the great news for all of us is first, as Christians, God is our Father and the discipline starts with His children. Hebrews 12:11 con-firms what we know: “No disci-pline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteous-ness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Anyone who is or has been a parent understands this perfectly — discipline is necessary to produce great kids! Secondly, if we respond to God’s disci-pline, the outcome for those who do not know God will be much brighter. We will step outside our isolated lives and grow concerned about the suf-ferings of others and show them by our example how able God is to meet our needs during times like these. May it be so … because every heart matters!

While church attendance has declined nationwide, The Journey is growing. When the church started in its current form, 75 people attended the weekly service six years ago. Nowadays, an estimated 1,000 people flocked to the five services on Saturdays and Sundays. “We wanted to take these preconceived notions of what church is, which can be this kind of stuffy reli-gious thing, and make it something that applied on a deeply personal level,” Pastor Mark Johnston said. “We want the message to be, ‘Come as you are. You don’t have to change who you are to worship with us.’” That explosion in membership forced the church to move from a space in the Delaware Industrial Park. The church purchased a large, brick building that had previously housed a Jumbo Sports and offices for MBNA and Bank of America. “Easter is a time of renewal and resurrection, and here we are, this little church that has grown into this huge building,” said Sam Lopez, who has been attending The Journey with his wife for five years Only half the building is occupied. It features a 275-seat auditorium where ser-vices are held and a gather-ing room with computers, coffee shop and “Journey Central,” a kind of “help desk” where visitors and new members can mingle and learn more about the church. Administrative offices and classrooms for children up to the fifth grade are in the back.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comOK. Uncle, but only for this year. Columbia High’s softball team lost to P.K. Yonge School for the third time. The Blue Wave beat Columbia 12-3 in Lake City on Thursday. The Gainesville school, ranked No. 1 in the state in Class 3A, improved to 19-2. Columbia fell to 15-4. “We were a little rusty coming back from spring break and our bats were slow,” CHS head coach Jimmy Williams said. “Their pitcher (Kalen McGill) gets stronger as she goes along and good pitching will beat good hitting.” McGill was strong at the plate, too, ripping a grand slam home run in the sev-enth as the Blue Wave had back-to-back four-run innings. McGill was 2-for-3 with five RBIs. Kayli Kvistad had the hot bat for Columbia, going 3-for-3 with two RBIs. Brittany Morgan had two hits and scored a run. Columbia took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning. Lacey King led off with a walk and Morgan beat out a bunt for a single. Kvistad singled to score King and Morgan scored on a passed ball. Lauren Eaker and King reached on errors in the seventh inning and Kvistad singled to score King. Caleigh McCauley and Hollianne Dohrn had the other hits for Columbia. Erin Anderson and Ashley Shoup literally split up the pitching duties, Anderson started and was relieved by Shoup with one out in the third inning. Anderson returned to pitch the final three innings. P.K. got hits from every player in the lineup, includ-ing home runs from Kathyrn Butts in the No. 7 spot and Taylor Knight hitting No. 8. Knight was 3-for-3. McGill finished with two earned runs, two walks and seven strikeouts. Columbia plays in the Doc4Life Varsity Showdown and JV Championships at Shocker Park in Ocala. The varsity plays Hernando High at 3 p.m. and North Marion High at 4:45 p.m. today, and Ponte Vedra High at 1 p.m. Saturday. The JV schedule is Yulee High at 4:45 p.m. today, and Lake Weir High at 9 a.m., and East Ridge High at 1 p.m. on Saturday. L ocal baseball fans follow-ing favorite son Michael Kirkman at the start of the season got a two-fer. The Texas Rangers opened the 2013 season with a three-game series against new West Division foe Houston Astros. Kirkman pitched in Tuesday’s second game, getting the final out after Yu Darvish had a perfect game going for 8 23 innings. Kirkman gave up a single to Jose Altuve before striking out J.D. Martinez to polish off the 7-0 victory. Kirkman was back on the bump in Wednesday’s 4-0 win over the Astros. He relieved with one out in the eight inning and fanned the two hitters he faced. In the other dugout was Carlos Corporan, another player with Lake City ties. Corporan played for Tom Clark at Lake City Community College in 2002-03. Like Kirkman, Corporan has bounced between the big club and the minors until this year when both made the opening day roster. Corporan had the misfortune to get the start behind the plate against Darvish and went hitless in his three at bats. Corporan had one MLB at bat in 2009 and got a hit. He kept his 1.000 average until 2011 when he came up and played 52 games. He hit .188 in 154 at bats with eight doubles, one triple and 11 RBIs. Last year, Corporan showed some pop, hitting .269 in 78 at bats with two doubles, four home runs and 13 RBIs. Q Sisters Cecile Gomez and Celeste Gomez, who played at Fort White and Columbia would make an excellent battery if on the same team. Playing for Jacksonville University (27-10), Cecile is 8-0 with a 1.74 ERA. She has 12 starts and four saves in 19 appearances with five complete games. In 72 23 innings, Cecile has given up 59 hits and 26 runs (18 earned) with 16 walks and 73 strikeouts. She has hit seven batters, which may be a purpose pitch since she had not thrown a wild pitch. The Dolphins are 8-3 and second in the Atlantic Sun Conference. Celeste has played in 40 games and started 38 for Florida State (28-13). She has 24 hits in 102 at bats for a .235 average, and has scored 17 runs. Celeste has seven home runs, four doubles and 24 RBIs and has walked 16 times. At 7-2 in the ACC, the Seminoles are one game up on North Carolina and 1 12 games ahead of Maryland and Georgia Tech. Lake City’s Jacob Tillotson has moved from Santa Fe College to the University of Tampa and is having a stellar season, as are the Spartans who are 26-5 overall and lead the Sunshine State Conference at 9-3. Tillotson leads the team in games played with 31 and starts with 29. He has 28 hits in 87 at bats (.322) with 18 runs scored, seven doubles, two triples, one home run and 22 RBIs. Tillotson is second on the team in triples, tied for fourth in doubles and fifth in at bats, runs and on base percentage. His four sacrifice flies lead the team. He is second with 22 walks and tied for second with two sacrifice bunts.

LAKE CITY REPORTER BASKETBALL FR IDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 5 & 6, 2013 3B 3BSports A closer look at the Final FourBy JIM O’CONNELLAP Basketball WriterATLANTA — A look at Saturday’s games at the Final Four:LOUISVILLE (33-5) vs. WICHITA STATE (30-8) LOUISVILLE Road to the Final Four Beat No. 16 North Carolina A&T 79-48; beat No. 8 Colorado State 82-56; beat No. 12 Oregon 77-69; beat No. 2 Duke 85-63. Star Russ Smith was the MOP of the Midwest Regional after matching his career high of 31 points against Oregon and then scoring 23 against Duke. The junior guard with the nickname “Russdiculous” for his wide-open style of play is aver-aging 26.0 points and 3.3 steals in the four tourna-ment games, well above his 18.9 and 2.2 for the season. He may have the reputation as a wild shooter but he is 42.3 percent for the sea-son from the field, includ-ing shooting 50 percent or better in three of the NCAA games. Coach Rick Pitino is the only coach to have taken three different schools to the Final Four (Kentucky, Providence) and he has the Cardinals here for the sec-ond straight year as well as in 2005. His 46-16 record in the NCAA tournament is third among active coach-es by winning percentage. His national championship came with Kentucky in 1996. On Monday, Pitino will find out if he has been elected to the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame. Key point The Cardinals came into the tournament for the sec-ond straight year as Big East tournament champi-ons. Like they did in the conference tournament, the Cardinals made their mark with defense. Their 14-game winning streak is their longest since 2003-04. Their 20 steals against North Carolina A&T were an NCAA tournament record. In the four NCAA games they are averaging 22.6 points per game off turnovers. WICHITA STATE Road to the Final Four Beat No. 8 Pittsburgh 73-55; beat No. 1 Gonzaga 76-70; beat No. 13 La Salle 72-58; beat No. 2 Ohio State 70-66. Star Senior guard Malcolm Armstead is averaging 15.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.0 steals in the NCAA tournament. The MOP of the West Regional, Armstead sat out last sea-son after transferring from Oregon. His floor leader-ship and defense were the difference in the regional final win over Ohio State when he struggled with his shooting, finishing 6 of 21 from the field. Coach Gregg Marshall is in his sixth season with the Shockers and he has them in the tournament for the second straight year although 2012 ended with a first-round loss to VCU. He led Winthrop to the NCAA tournament seven times from 1999-2007 with one win, as an 11 seed over Notre Dame in 2007. He has Wichita State on the best four-year run in school history and he has been selected Missouri Valley Conference coach of the year the last two seasons. Key point The Shockers have been playing solid defense in the tournament (62.2) while scoring between 70 and 76 points in the four games. They may have gotten a break with La Salle advanc-ing to the regional semifi-nals but the Shockers beat No. 1 Gonzaga in the third round and No. 2 Ohio State to get to the Final Four for the first time since 1965. If they are to move on, the Shockers will need to keep their balance on offense and continue their strong play on the boards (plus-4.3). The skinny Wichita State has to make sure it doesn’t turn the ball over and hit shots so Louisville can’t get its press in gear. Nobody in the country turns turn-overs into points the way the Cardinals do. Louisville will also have an emotion-al edge with Kevin Ware, who broke his leg in a hideous fashion against Duke, in Atlanta on crutches to cheer on his teammates. The pick Louisville has dominated teams in the last three weeks with only one team getting single digits. Look for the Cardinals to just keep pulling away: 77-61.MICHIGAN (30-7) vs. SYRACUSE (30-9)MICHIGAN Road to the Final Four Beat No. 13 South Dakota State 71-56; beat No. 5 VCU 78-53; beat No. 1 Kansas 87-85, OT; beat No. 3 Florida 79-59. Star Trey Burke, a consensus first-team All-America, was the MOP of the South Regional and that included an incredible performance against top-seeded Kansas in the round of 16. After having five assists and no points in the first half, Burke scored 23 points in the second half and over-time as Michigan overcame a 10-point deficit with 2:20 left. His 30-footer tied the game with 4 seconds left in regulation. He finished with 10 assists for his fourth double-double of the season. He averages 18.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 6.8 assists while shooting 46.4 percent from the field. Coach John Beilein has the reputation as the coach’s coach. He has compiled winning records in 30 of his 35 sea-sons as a head coach and has never had back-to-back losing years. He has led four schools to the NCAA tournament (Canisius, Richmond, West Virginia) and this is his first Final Four and Michigan’s first since 1992. If any coach can handle Syracuse’s famed 2-3 zone it will be Beilein. Key Point Michigan is a young team — there are often four freshmen and Burke on the court — and having nobody with Final Four experience, including the coach, could be a factor until the nerves settle. The big surprise of the tournament has been freshmen forward Mitch McGary, who is averag-ing a team-high 17.5 points and 11.5 rebounds. He had a career-high 25 points and 14 rebounds against Kansas. SYRACUSE Road to the Final Four Beat No. 13 Montana 81-34; beat No. 12 California 66-60; beat No. 1 Indiana 61-50; beat No. 3 Marquette 55-39. Star Even with future NBA players on the ros-ter, Syracuse’s star is the 2-3 zone. With its size up top and the length of it on the backline, the zone has turned some teams into offensive messes. It’s not just bad shooting (the teams in the NCAA tournament are shooting 28.9 percent from the field and 15.4 per-cent (14 of 91) from 3-point range) it’s the 67 turnovers forced, the 44 steals and 25 blocked shots. The Orange held two teams below 40 points in a game. Coach Jim Boeheim is second only to Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski in wins in Division I (957-920) and this is the fourth team he’s taken to the Final Four, advancing to the championship game each of the previous three times and winning it all in 2003. His teams have played the zone defense during a time in college basketball when almost all teams play man-to-man. He played at Syracuse beside Naismith Hall of Famer Dave Bing in the backcourt and has coached at no other school. Key point The backcourt of Brandon Triche and Michael CarterWilliams are the stars of the zone playing up top and then taking advantage of the turnovers and missed shots for transition baskets. James Southerland is the 3-point specialist (36.8 per-cent) but the Orange are shooting 36.7 percent from behind the arc. The only drawback to the zone is rebounding and the Orange, despite winning by an aver-age of 20 points, have less than a one-rebound per game advantage. The skinny It’s too easy to say this is the offense of Michigan against the zone defense of Syracuse. It’s not just Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Glenn Robinson III are legitimate scorers and freshman Nik Stauskas is shooting 44.9 percent from 3-point range. Syracuse hasn’t been stunning any-body with its offense but the zone has had some pretty good players muttering as they left the court. The pick The zone will have another strong game and Carter-Williams’ confi-dence is rising with each outing. Michigan will get more than 50 points but not a whole lot more: Syracuse 61-53. ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this Nov. 13 file photo, Michigan guard Trey Burke (3) drives around Cleveland State guard Sebastian Douglas (1) during the first half of their NCAA college basketball gam e in the second-round of the NIT Season Tip-Off tournamen t at Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor, Mich. Michigan will play in the Final Four on Saturday. Varying paths have made Shockers a Final Four teamBy DAVE SKRETTAAssociated PressATLANTA — More than 30 years ago, Cliff Levingston was part of a powerhouse team at Wichita State that was stocked with future NBA talent, and to this day he believes it underachieved. The Shockers were knocked off a game shy of the Final Four. This year, Levingston has been watching from his home in Rochester, N.Y., as a more motley group of players from disparate back-grounds has done just the opposite: Without a bona fide star, unsung Wichita State will play Louisville on Saturday night for a spot in the title game. “It’s all about the coaching staff finding the right players to fit the program,” said Levingston, now a minor-league basketball coach. “They’re playing for each other, because for some of these guys, this could be it, and they know it. They’re playing to be immortalized.” But just who, exactly, are they? Well, there’s Carl Hall, a rugged forward from rural Georgia, and Ron Baker, a small-town kid from central Kansas. Their leading scor-er, Cleanthony Early, came out of a tiny junior college in upstate New York and was passed over by most high-profile basketball programs. Seven-footer Ehimen Orukpe is from Lagos, Nigeria, by way of Three Rivers Community College in Missouri. Kadeem Coleby is from the Bahamas, and once played for Louisiana-Lafayette, while a couple of backups in Nick Wiggins and Chadrack Lufile are originally from Canada. Then there’s Malcolm Armstead, a talented point guard from Florence, Ala. He also played at a junior college, spent time at Oregon and then landed at Wichita State, where there wasn’t even a scholarship available. He’s spent time working at a car dealer-ship and took out student loans just so he could play one last season for coach Gregg Marshall’s band of ragamuffins. “I knew I only had one year left of eligibility to play, so it was a matter of finding a good situation,” Armstead explained. “I had a relationship with all the coaches, so I felt like that was the best thing possible for me to do.” Just about all of them feel that way during this most sublime of postseason runs. Many were castoffs or misfits, or were in situations that didn’t work out. Some were looking for a fresh start, others seeking a first chance after getting over-looked their entire lives. It’s a far different group from that Wichita State team in 1981 that lost to LSU in the regional finals, and then sent Levingston, Antoine Carr and Xavier McDaniel to the NBA. It’s also a different bunch than Louisville will trot onto the floor at the Georgia Dome. Leading scorer Russ Smith picked the Cardinals over a handful of BCS offers, fellow starters Gorgui Dieng and Peyton Siva were four-star recruits out of high school, and sophomore forward Chane Behanen was rated among the top 25 prep players in his class by Rivals.com Indeed, the stars may be aligning for Wichita State during the NCAA tourna-ment, but there weren’t a whole lot of them attached to their names when they were coming out of high school. ASSOCIATED PRESSWichita State’s mascot WuShock fires up the crowd before th eir first-round game against Texas A&M in the women’s NCAA college basketball tourn ament in College Station, Texas, Saturday. Fast fact: What’s a ‘Shocker?’ As the lowest seed s till playing and one of the lowest ever to reach the final weekend Wichita State’s nic kname is appropriate. University lore traces the name to 1904, when a football manager cal led the team as the “Shockers” to drum up interest in a gridiron matchup.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 5-6, 2013 DEAR ABBY: I met the woman of my dreams about a year ago. Her hus-band had died about two months before our paths crossed. She has two teen-age daughters I’m very fond of. I have a history of alcoholism and she’s a hoarder. A week ago, I had an “epiphany”: I am desperately trying to quit drinking for my own sake. Abby, I am a clean freak living with a hoarder. I come home from work and get depressed and stressed from looking at all the clutter. It is driv-ing me insane. I feel like it is triggering me to stay drunk every night. I don’t want to lose this woman and her family, but I can’t co-exist in this house. I have left several times, only to miss her and go back. I’m trying to kick the booze, but I know I won’t be able to achieve sobriety while living in this house. -TRULY TORN IN TEXAS DEAR TRULY TORN: If you quit drinking only a week ago, it is important that you find an AA group to help you hang onto your sobriety. That’s step one. Next, realize that you and the lady you’re living with may share a similar problem. You say you are a “clean freak.” This can be a symptom of an obses-sive-compulsive disorder. Hoarding can be a symp-tom of the same disorder. The International OCD Foundation is a reliable resource that may be able to help you both. It offers individuals with this disor-der the support they need to manage their symp-toms, and has many local chapters. You can locate it online at www.ocfounda-tion.org or reach it by call-ing 617-973-5801. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Maybe you would like to pass this on to the parents of teen-age boys. It worked for me when I had the sex talk with my sons. I knew their brains had not yet fully developed. They thought they were invincible and had an “it could never hap-pen to me” attitude. Because money seems to be the one thing at that age they can relate to, I decided to turn it into a mathematical problem: I told them that if they got a girl pregnant, they could figure on a minimum of $300 a month child sup-port, multiplied by 12 months for 18 years. (That totals $65,000 -unless the girl has twins, which would double the amount.) Then I told them if they were tempted to have unprotected sex, they should look at the girl and ask themselves if they would pay her $65,000 to have sex with them. If they couldn’t answer yes, then they needed to walk away. Abby, it worked! No grandchildren appeared until after they were mar-ried. Feel free to share this with other parents who would appreciate a “non-traditional” approach that is effective. -TONY IN SAN DIEGO DEAR TONY: Gladly. I’m passing your technique along because money is a great motivator, and your idea makes “cents.” ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My roommate insists that under-shirts should be washed right-side-out. I say as long as you’re using detergent and bleach, it doesn’t mat-ter. Who is right? -MR. CLEAN IN OCEANSIDE, CALIF. DEAR MR. CLEAN: I don’t claim to be a domes-tic goddess, but I don’t think there is a right or wrong way to wash undershirts. I have heard, however, that washing garments inside out will prevent lint buildup on the outside, and in the case of denim, less fading. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I’m a member of a close-knit theater company for teens, and I auditioned for the musical “Fame.” The direc-tor wants to give me a role as one of the teachers. Show after show, I get matronly roles with no memorable lines or funny scenes. I don’t know if I should accept the part. If I do, I’ll get to be with my friends. If I don’t, there will still be another show coming up that I can audi-tion for. What should I do? -YOUNG ACTRESS IN MICHIGAN DEAR YOUNG ACTRESS: Grab all the time you can get on stage. If you didn’t have the depth it takes to por-tray a mature role, your director wouldn’t want to assign it to you. This is a COMPLIMENT about your abilities. Audition for the next show as well. The more varied the roles you play, the more you can develop your craft. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My husband and I decided to take some classes at a local community college. We both have college degrees, but there was a class we were interested in. We are the oldest students in the class by 10 to 20 years. I am irritated by our classmates’ disrespect and rudeness to the instructor. It takes the form of talk-ing with each other when the instructor is speaking, then asking her to explain what she just discussed while they were talking. They sometimes get so loud that I can’t hear what the teacher is saying. Is there anything I can do as a fellow student to get them to stop? Because of the age difference, I’m afraid most of them would think I was being bossy. -ANONYMOUS IN CALIFORNIA DEAR ANONYMOUS: The teacher you describe does not appear to be a particularly effective one or she would have better control of the classroom. Because the noise level is so high you can’t hear the lecture, I have two suggestions: The first is to speak privately with the teacher. And if that doesn’t do the trick, when the stu-dents around you become disruptive, ask them to pipe down so you can hear what the instructor is saying. That is not being bossy. You paid for the class and you should get your money’s worth. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My husband and I often go out to eat at local ethnic restau-rants with a small group of friends. When we’re at a Mexican restaurant, I often throw a couple of “arribas!” into our conver-sation. When we’re at an Italian restaurant, I will sometimes use an Italian accent to say “pizza pie-a!” My husband tells me it’s offensive. I don’t mean to insult anyone. My comments are made in the spirit of fun. Furthermore, the owners and servers at these res-taurants are hardly ethnic Mexicans or Italians. I would never wish to hurt someone or be derogatory, so I told my husband I’d consult you. What do you think? -MUY CALIENTE IN IOWA DEAR MUY CALIENTE: When you visit a Jewish deli do you tell the server, “Oy vey, I’ll have the corned beef”? Your hus-band is right -cool it. Not because you’ll offend the servers in the restaurant, but because stereotyping makes you look like a fool. ** ** **Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. ** ** ** Abby shares more than 100 of her favorite recipes in two booklets: “Abby’s Favorite Recipes” and “More Favorite Recipes by Dear Abby.” Send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $14 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby, Cookbooklet Set, P.O.

By TONY YOUNGmyfwc.com M y interest in hunting the quirky-moving, nervousacting, but beautifully colored wild turkey was piqued about 12 years ago by an old high school friend and band mate, Todd Bevis. Todd’s a turkey-hunting fanatic if I’ve ever seen one, and the excitement in his voice that’s apparent every time he tells a hunting story played a big part in my getting the fever to experience spring turkey hunting myself. My former in-laws owned a nice tract of land in northern Franklin County with a half-mile of deep creek frontage on a major tributary of the Apalachicola River. Over the years, I enjoyed deer hunting there and took a few fall turkeys, but bagging a good long-beard in the spring takes a bit more skill. I was now ready to learn how to call-in and harvest my first spring gobbler. All I needed was the know-how, and I figured I could get that from Todd and from watching hunting shows on TV. Todd encouraged me to get a box call because he said it would be the quickest and easiest call for me to learn — and the spring season was approaching fast. He taught me how to do some basic yelps and a single-note cluck and said if I had birds on the property that had really never been called to before, and, if I could sit still long enough, I might be able to call one in. But Todd warned me, “Don’t make the mistake some people do in calling too much. Let ’em know you’re there, but let ’em come to you. Less is more.” With that advice in mind, I set out early opening day. I needed to get there a half-hour before first light so I could set my three decoys in place and get situated. While carrying two hen decoys and a jake in one hand, I toted my shotgun, camo seat cushion and small flashlight in the other and made my way in the dark down a trail that weaved through the saw palmettos toward a spot where I often saw turkeys. The setup was on a ridge that jutted out between the creek and a ravine. It was where turkeys roosted most every evening amid juniper, tupelo and cypress trees over the water. Before I could finish setting up my decoys, the sounds of gobbling echoed in the darkness from the creek bottom below. The strange vocalization of three, maybe four, birds was something I’d never heard; it fascinated me. I picked out a large pine tree to lean back against to hide my silhouette. Then, I used a pair of hand pruners and began to snip some of the surrounding native vegetation and used the clippings for my make-shift ground blind. I settled in against the tree — my gun across my legs and my box call in my lap — and the sound of gobbling continued to fill the quiet pre-dawn. When it was light enough to see, I picked up my box call and made my first yelp to make those gobblers think there was an interested hen nearby. A reassuring gobble answered me right away! I was so excited I couldn’t believe it — a gobbler actually had responded, just like on those hunting shows. What am I supposed to do now, I wondered? I remembered Todd telling me to try not to call any more often than every 15 minutes. So I sat quietly in anticipation for what seemed to be the longest 15 minutes of my life. When I glanced down at my watch, only five minutes had elapsed. After another five minutes of real time had passed, I couldn’t stand it any longer and made another call. Another gobble immediately followed, but this time it was louder. This bird actually was coming to me! I sat just as still as I could for another 10 or 15 minutes and called out for a third time. The “GOBBLE, GOBBLE, GOBBLE, GOBBLE” reply sounded like it was being screamed into my ears. This turkey was right on top of me! I couldn’t see him, but he had to be just out of my sight behind the brush. A few moments later, the longbeard stepped out from behind a thicket in full strut, and my heart started pounding. I couldn’t see its legs because its gold, iridescent feathers were covering them, but the bird seemed to glide like an apparition as it cautiously made its way toward the decoys. The way its head was changing colors from red to blue and back again and the show this gobbler was putting on were truly a sight to behold. I realized what Todd’s and so many other turkey hunters’ infatuation was all about. Its instinctive, ritualistic courtship dance was so beautiful I almost didn’t want to end it, but the big tom was getting too close, and I knew I’d better take the shot soon for fear he’d spy me. The opportunity to raise my 12-gauge shotgun came when he went behind a palmetto clump at 12 steps, and I fired just one shot when he stepped out. What a rush!It was my first spring gobbler, and it had a 9-inch beard. Now what was so hard about taking a spring turkey. After all, it was only 8 a.m., and I already had my daily bag limit. Spring turkey hunting rarely happens that way. Maybe it was beginner’s luck, but whatever it was — I have been hooked ever since. 6B LAKE CITY REPORTER OUTDOORS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 5 & 6, 20136B FRIDAY EVENING APRIL 5, 2013 Comcast Dish DirecTV 6 PM6:307 PM7:308 PM8:309 PM9:3010 PM10:3011 PM11:30 3-ABC 3 -TV20 NewsABC World NewsEntertainment Ton.Inside Edition (N) Happy Endings (N) Happy Endings (N) (:01) Shark Tank (N) (:01) 20/20 News at 11Jimmy Kimmel Live 4-IND 4 4 4Chann 4 NewsChann 4 NewsEntertainment Ton.Inside Edition (N) Love-RaymondRules/EngagementBig Bang TheoryBig Bang TheoryThe 10 O’Clock News (N) Chann 4 News(:35) omg!

LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 5 & 6, 2013 7B7BNascar In a rather surpris-ing turn of events, Mark Martin was announced last Thursday as the fill-in driver for Denny Hamlin, who is expect-ed to be out of Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 11 Toyota for about five races due to a back injury suffered in a last-lap crash at Auto Club Speedway on March 24. But a day after Gibbs announced the decision to put Martin in the car, Martin’s regular employer, Michael Waltrip Racing, announced that he would be driving the No. 11 only this weekend at Martinsville Speedway. After that, he’ll resume his duties as part-time driver of Waltrip’s No. 55 Toyota. Brian Vickers, a driver with plenty of Cup experience now racing full-time in the Nationwide Series for Gibbs, will take over the No. 11 after Martinsville and drive it until Hamlin can return to the seat. “Obviously, having to find someone to fill in for Denny is not an ideal situation to have to be in, and when you start a process like this you obviously begin to look at the drivers that are not only available, but also able to drive for your race team and manufac-turer,” J.D. Gibbs, president of Joe Gibbs Racing, said in a team release. “We were a bit premature in determining Mark’s status past Martinsville, however ... We’re real happy to have the opportunity to get Brian in our Cup cars and with him driving Nationwide for us, we think we have some continuity there that is beneficial.”Gen-6 car ‘off to good start’ After five Sprint Cup races this season, there have been races at five different types of race tracks, with five different winners, and the three participating manufacturers all record-ing race victories. John Darby, NASCAR’s managing direc-tor of competition and the Sprint Cup Series director, said on a teleconference last week that those numbers are indicators that the Generation 6 race car that made its debut this season is off to a good start. “It’s very difficult to make a firm judgment off of one race or one style of race track,” he said. “But we’ve had a great sampling of everything from short tracks to restrictor-plate racing so far in ’13, and we have been very pleased with all of what we’ve seen.” Darby went on to say that he believes the on-track product is getting better as teams and drivers get more experience with the new car. “All the engineers and resources in the world can put their heads together and present a car for competition,” he said. “But until the actual race teams get ahold of the race car and do what they do best … I don’t believe [we] have seen its full potential … we have just scratched the surface.” Darby also explained his decision not to penalize any drivers for their conduct in the closing laps — and afterward — at Auto Club Speedway. Some wondered why Tony Stewart wasn’t punished for turning his car in to Joey Logano’s after the race and confronting him about the block Logano put on him during a late-race restart. “A few years ago, we backed away from micro-managing drivers’ emotions,” Darby said. “You would hope in today’s world that if somebody didn’t win a race, they would be upset about it for whatever reason. That’s what our drivers do — they try to win races.” He said some emotion — and anger — is just part of the sport. “A couple of drivers arguing a little bit doesn’t create a foul in our world today,” he said. “The crews did a great job of managing their drivers to make sure that it didn’t cross the line to where there was physical violence or anything like that.”Truck Series resumes The Camping World Truck Series has been idle since the season opener at Daytona International Speedway, but that doesn’t mean the drivers have been in holiday mode. Some have been trying to get some dirt rac-ing experience to prepare them for the July 24 race at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. It’s the first appearance on dirt for a major NASCAR series since the Cup circuit raced at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in 1970. Joey Coulter has been competing in a Late Model in the NeSmith Chevrolet Late Model Series. Matt Crafton drove a dirt Modified at Tucson Raceway Park, the dirt track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and at Volusia Speedway Park. Max Gresham also raced at Volusia. “It was totally different,” Coulter told report-ers from Speed TV in describing his experi-ences racing on a clay surface, where drivers often run practically sideways and on the verge of losing control lap after lap. “I’ve been racing for 14 years, and all 14 have been on pavement. It was really, really different. “But it was a ton of fun and I really enjoyed it right from the get-go.” Some are planning to tune up in test sessions. Red Horse Racing plans to send its three driv-ers, Timothy Peters, German Quiroga and John Wes Townley, to a dirt-racing school, but there are some Truck Series drivers like Ty Dillon who have extensive experience on dirt. Several veteran NASCAR drivers who run on dirt mostly for fun are planning to race at Eldora. Among them are Kenny Wallace and Ken Schrader. And there are a few dirt veterans, including Scott Bloomquist, one of dirt racing’s all-time great drivers, who plan to enter the race. The Truck Series returns to one of its familiar tracks, Martinsville Speedway, this weekend for the Kroger 250. NUMERICALLY SPEAKING Laps led by Jimmie Johnson in the past 16 Sprint Cup races at Martinsville Speedway, tops among drivers Laps led by Brad Keselowski in the past six Cup races at Martinsville Speedway Green-flag passes by Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the past 16 Sprint Cup races at Martinsville Speedway, the most of any driver Drivers who have run every Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway for the past eight years: Ron Hornaday Jr., Matt Crafton, Todd Bodine and David Starr10 1,810 917 Ryan Newman returns to Martinsville Speedway as the defending winner of this weekend’s STP 500. Last year’s triumph, his first career Martinsville victory, came in dramatic fashion and has been a part of NASCAR’s highlight footage for the past 12 months. Last spring, team owner Rick Hendrick was poised to get his 200th win at Martinsville, where he got his first victory back in the spring of 1984 with Geoff Bodine driving. Martinsville also is where Hendrick attended races as a young-ster, and where one of his team’s planes crashed, kill-ing 10 people, including Hendrick’s son, brother, two nieces and members of his inner circle at Hendrick Motorsports. For much of last year’s race it looked as if either Jeff Gordon or Jimmie Johnson, both Hendrick drivers, would win the race. But with two of the scheduled 500 laps left to run, and Gordon and Johnson running 1-2, the caution flag flew for the stalled car of David Reutimann. That’s when the situation began to turn in Newman’s favor. He’d struggled early in the race, even going a lap down at one point. But he and his crew, then led by crew chief Tony Gibson, worked on his car and improved its handling. “It was way off at first, we got it bet-ter, and once we got our lap back, we were really good,” Newman said. “We drove up through a lot of guys. We weren’t a winning car. The Hendrick guys were the winning cars.” But it’s never over until the check-ered flag falls, and on Lap 504, with the race already past its scheduled distance, the field was set to try up to three green-white-checkered-flag runs to the finish. Newman lined up fifth, behind Clint Bowyer, with Gordon and Johnson on the front row. “I went to go past [Bowyer] and he blocked me,” Newman said, explain-ing that he bumped into Bowyer at that point. “When I did, I gave him enough momentum to be able to shoot down underneath [Gordon and Johnson].” But in the process, Bowyer ran into the concrete curb on the inside of the race track and bounced up into the leaders, causing a crash. “If [Bowyer] hadn’t clipped the curb, he probably would have won,” Newman said. Instead, Newman’s No. 39 Chevrolet shot into the lead as the caution flag flew yet again, setting up another restart on Lap 514. Newman said his goal on that start was to try to prevent another situation in which the leader lost a chance for victory. On the start, he had the inside, with A.J. Allmendinger on the outside and Dale Earnhardt Jr. in third, the same position Bowyer was in on the previous restart. “My biggest goal was to keep Junior from going three wide because he was restarting third, which would have put me in the middle, which obviously didn’t work for the last group,” Newman said. “I knew if I could keep [Allmendinger] on the outside of me, in a lap and a half or two laps, no matter how good his car was, the inside line is better. After about a lap I held him to the outside, and we drove away.” From then on, his goal was to keep Allmendinger from making a des-perate bid for the win and wrecking them both. “I wanted to make sure he didn’t try to banzai me,” Newman said. “For him, a second-place finish was a really good day for his team, and for us, a win was what we were there for.” Finally, on Lap 515, the checkered flag flew, with Newman in control of the race. After six top-five finishes, includ-ing a second-place run in 2007, he finally collected one of the track’s signature grandfather clock trophies. “It was just good circumstances,” Newman said of the turn of events that resulted in his 16th career Sprint Cup victory. “I think it made for a great race.” Ryan Newman shoots into the lead in the 2012 STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway.Defending STP 500 winner Ryan Newman describes dramatic 2012 win at Martinsville Martin, Vickers to sub for Hamlin Mark Martin NEXTUP...Race: O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 Where: Texas Motor Speedway When: April 12, 8:30 p.m. (ET) TV: ESPN2 2012 Winner: Ricky Stenhouse Jr. NATIONWIDE SERIES CAMPING WORLD TRUCKS Race: Kroger 250 Where: Martinsville Speedway When: Saturday, 1:30 p.m. (ET) TV: SPEED 2012 Winner: Kevin Harvick SPRINT CUP Race: STP Gas Booster 500 Where: Martinsville Speedway When: Sunday, 1:00 p.m. (ET) TV: FOX Sports 2012 Winner: Ryan Newman (right) NOTEBOOK Newman celebrates his 2012 STP 500 win at Martinsville Speedway.Jerry Markland/Getty Images for NASCARJeff Zelevansky/Getty Images for NASCAR Chris Graythen/Getty Images for NASCAR SPRINT CUP STANDINGS1.

Before he devoted his full-time attention to NASCAR in 1999, Blaney won 70 features with the World of Outlaws, the premier sprint car circuit in America. Last Saturday, he showed some of his old skills by winning the main event at Port Royal Speedway in Penns ylvania. Blaney, driving a No. 10 car he prepared him self, rode the high groove to his third career victory at that track, the others coming in 1983 and 1984. He earned $3,300 for his efforts, not a lot compar ed to the $108,738 he collected for his 21st-place nish at Auto Club Speedway in the Sprint Cup race the week befor e. At Gresham Motorsports Park in Jefferson, Ga., local favorite Chase Elliott, 17, tuned up for his Camping World Truck Series debut this weekend at Martins-ville by winning the Larry Fleeman Memorial 198 Late Model race. Elliott is the son of former Sprint Cup champion Bill Elliott.Racing pioneer Malone dead at 76 Art Malone, a legendary seeker of speed, died Marc h 29 at age 76 from lingering injuries suffered in an airboat accident. Although he was best known as a d rag racer, Malone also was a participant in NASCAR raci ng. In 1961, he became the rst driver to average more than 180 miles per hour at Daytona International Speedway. Driving a specially prepared open-wheel racer, he collected a $10,000 prize for his efforts. Malone made two starts in the series now known as Sprint Cup. He nished eighth at Martinsville in 1961 substitute driving for Lee Petty in a Petty Enterprises Plymouth, and was 10th in the Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway in 1962 driving a Pontiac for Jack Smith.
