The numbers flashed across the digital screen 45, 38, 32 as the cars zipped past the state Department of Transportation Building at 1109 S. Marion Ave., each vehicle slowing down as the driver saw the large group of children and FDOT personnel standing on the front lawn. About 40 local elementary and middle school students attended the Take Your Child to Work Day at the FDOT office on Thursday. For the 15th year in a row, employees were able to show their children what a day at work is like, and the students seemed excited. The group got lessons in bridge design, speed studies and measuring moisture in dirt. Its just like a school day, said Gina Busscher, public informa tion officer at FDOT.

AROUND FLORIDA Online school target of cuts TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s highly-successful online school is battling proposed cutbacks at a time when state legislators are bragging about boost-ing money for schools by more than $1 billion. Supporters of the Florida Virtual School, including U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, R-Winter Garden, warn the cuts could affect the quality of operations at the school, which offers courses to nearly 150,000. By one estimate the legis-lative changes could result in a 14 percent funding reduction. Webster, who championed the creation and expansion of the school when he was a state legislator, said Florida Virtual School has already endured additional cuts in the last few years when Florida was mired in the recession. “Although the cuts currently being considered for Florida Virtual School may appear insignificant on their own, when coupled with the recent reductions over the past several years, they will reach a magni-tude that will have a large impact on the quality and effectiveness of the virtual school program,” Webster said. Florida Virtual School, which grew out of a pilot project, now offers more than 120 courses free to students who live in Florida. One of its students was Aly Raisman, a member of the successful U.S team in gymnastics. The school employs more than 1,000 teachers. Lawmakers are looking at a complicated change in funding that would cut how much the school receives for teaching indi-vidual courses. Woman, 78, gets 10 years in jail DAYTONA BEACH — A 78-year-old woman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for a drunk driving crash that killed a North Carolina man dur-ing Bike Week. Judge Leah R. Case noted during a sentencing hearing on Wednesday that Barbara Dunn of Chatham, Mass., had no criminal record. But the judge said Dunn — who had a blood-alcohol level more than three times the legal limit — apparently has a drinking problem. The judge revoked Dunn’s driver’s license for the rest of her life. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Dunn struck and killed 64-year-old Charles Bixler of Concord, N.C., on March 17, 2012. Two other bikers were forced off the road and injured.Starvation death trial under way BARTOW — A Lakeland man is on trial for first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated man-slaughter of a child charg-es after prosecutors say he starved his infant daughter to death in 2009. The Lakeland Ledger reports that Chauncey Gardner’s 5-month-old baby was found dead Nov. 1, 2009. A police report said Gardner and the baby’s mother, Tivasha Logan, told detectives that they were unaware that they had been feeding the baby an improper ratio of pow-dered formula to water. The 30-year-old Gardner has 10 children from sev-eral different women, and helped take care of his children when he was able to do so and not in jail or prison. Logan is serving a life sentence in prison after being found guilty of first-degree murder and aggra-vated manslaughter of a child.Bill would shield voter emails TALLAHASSEE — The Florida House has passed a bill that would exempt voters’ email addresses from the state’s public records law if they are col-lected through voter regis-tration. The bill (HB 249) passed by a 114-1 vote. Public records exemptions require a two-thirds vote. Democratic Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel-Vasilinda of Tallahassee cast the sole ‘no’ vote. Proponents say releasing email addresses could have led to identity theft and voter fraud. The bill was amended after concerns raised by the First Amendment Foundation that the lan-guage was too broad. The language was changed to specify that only email addresses obtained when voters register are exempt.Man killed during police pursuit MIAMI — A man was fatally shot in South Florida during a police pursuit. It wasn’t immediately clear who shot the man, but Opalocka officials say police have a second man in custody, and officers were looking for a weapon in a nearby canal. The Miami Herald reports that an officer involved in Thursday’s pursuit suf-fered an ankle injury after exiting his car. Drugs found on Bieber’s tour busSTOCKHOLM T he list of troubles linked to Justin Bieber’s tour of Europe grew again after Swedish police said Thursday they had found drugs and a stun gun on the pop singer’s bus. No arrests were made since the bus was empty at the time, Stockholm police spokesman Lars Bystrom told The Associated Press. Police said they decided to act after smelling marijuana coming from inside the bus while it was parked outside the hotel where Bieber was staying in the capital. Drug officers searched the bus dur-ing the concert while Bieber was on stage, Bystrom said. He said a small amount of drugs and a stun gun were discovered during a search of the bus, which had been parked under the Globen concert venue in Stockholm, where Bieber was performing Wednesday. Bystrom declined to identify the drug, saying that it was sent to a lab for analysis. Bieber, who arrived in Helsinki, Finland, later Thursday to perform in a concert the following evening, tweeted after his arrival: “some of the rumors about me....where do people even get this stuff. whatever...back to the music.”Affleck to get honorary doctorate from Brown PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Academy Award-winning actor and director Ben Affleck is among six artists, writers, scientists and educators selected to receive honorary degrees from Brown University at next month’s graduation ceremonies. The Ivy League school in Rhode Island says Affleck will receive a doctor of fine arts during commencement exercises May 26. The Massachusetts native directed, produced and starred in “Argo,” which won this year’s Oscar for Best Picture. Others getting honorary doctorates are author and MIT Professor Junot Diaz; retired Stanford University bacteriologist Stanley Falkow; Tougaloo College President Beverly Wade Hogan; medical doctor and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation President Risa Lavizzo-Mourey; and Miami Dade College President Eduardo Padron.Singer Currington charged with threats SAVANNAH — Police in coastal Georgia say country singer Billy Currington may have videotaped himself chasing a 70-year-old tour boat captain and threatening to “fin-ish him off.” A police affidavit and search warrant papers filed Thursday in Chatham County Superior Court say officers seized digi-tal video files and photographs from Currington’s water-front home near Tybee Island. Currington, whose hits include “People Are Crazy,” was indicted Wednesday on felony charges of making terroristic threats and abuse of an elderly person. Tour boat captain Charles Harvey Ferrelle told police Currington shouted at him and two passengers when they passed his home April 15.

Lawrence Rentz, 45, faces charges of theft, possession of narcotic equipment, pos session of stolen property and burglary. At about 5:10 p.m. Tuesday, Officer Miles saw Rentz pushing a shop ping cart across Main Boulevard toward Nassau Street. Inside the cart were four chrome wheel rims, the arrest report said. Because it was extreme ly suspicious and out of the norm, Miles stopped Rentz. After running Rentzs name in a police database, Miles discovered a warrant had been issued for his arrest on a petty theft charge. Miles then detained him. Rentz told the officer that he got the rims from a friend for doing yard work in Columbia City. He told police that he pushed the rims from Columbia City to where he was stopped, the report said. Miles then called a man who works at a local car dealership to help her determine the type of vehi cle the rims came from and estimate of how much they were worth, according to the report. The man told Miles the 17-inch, chrome rims came off a Dodge truck and esti mated their value at $1,000, the report said. Miles then suspected the rims were stolen from her brother-in-law, because he owns a Dodge truck and he lives near where Rentz was stopped. Officer Miles contacted Sgt. Miles, who said he had a set of rims in a shed at his house. Officer Miles asked if he could check if they were still there. Sgt. Miles reported back to her that, yes, his shed had been burglarized and the rims stolen. He then went to the arrest scene and identified the rims as his, the report said. Officer Miles then told Rentz she knew where the rims were stolen from and that the rims belonged to an LCPD sergeant. Mr. Rentz then looked up at me and asked, It was your sergeants? the report says. At which time it appeared as if Rentz sunk down in to his seat, low ered his head and began to shake it back and forth while hanging his head down, the report reads. He denied stealing the rims and told police he got them from a man with whom he was going to split the profit if he could sell them, the report said. Rentz, who was listed as homeless on the arrest report, was then taken to Columbia County Detention Facility. No bond was set because of the outstanding warrant. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliamson@lakecityreporter.com A Lake City man was arrested after he allegedly threw bricks through the window of his ex-girlfriends home on Tuesday. Casey McRay, 29, of 240 SW Green Acres Way, was charged with hurling mis siles into an occupied dwell ing, resisting officers and assault. When city Police Officer Staci Brownfield responded to a disturbance at 1001 SW Spring Lane, she saw Officer Rodrigez and Officer Sepulveda speaking with an irate McRay, the arrest report said. According to Brownfield, McRay was placed in hand cuffs upon her arrival. Officer Rodriguez said the suspect had repeatedly threatened his ex-girlfriend, Megan Shepardson, in front of the officers. According to the report, McRay said, Im gonna kill you. McRay began to struggle with the officers, the report says, and he had to be restrained. At that time, McRay alleg edly said he was on bath salts. Howard Shepardson, 64, said McRay approached the home and started banging on the front door. When Howard Shepardson refused to allow McRay inside, McRay began to throw bricks and blocks through the front window, breaking the glass, the report says. Both Howard and Megan Shepardson said the sus pect was not allowed in the house because of his us of bath salts. Police took McRay to the Columbia County Detention Facility, where his bond was set at $14,000.

McRay COURTESY Caring response appreciated Columbia County School District presented Quinnetta Williams with a plaque at the School Board meetingTuesday for out standing assistance to students. Taking part in the presentation were (from left) Terry Huddleston, county school superin tendent; David Boozer, county fire chief; Quinetta Williams, Steve Nelson, school board chairman; assistant superintendent Narragansett Smith and Carol Alford, school director of transportation. Williams calmed children after a tractor-trailer rig smashed a car into a school bus that was dropping off students along U.S. 41 north of Lake City on March 1, Smith said. She is always reaching out to others and putting others before herself, Smith said of Williams. The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE In a nearly straight party-line vote, the state House on Thursday rejected a Senate proposal that would use bil lions of dollars in federal money to help low-income Floridians get health insur ance. The vote was a prelude to the Houses expected approval on today of anoth er plan that would turn down federal Medicaid money and offer $2,000 state health subsidies to targeted groups of poor people. House Republican leaders have pushed that plan (HB 7169), contending it would be a free-market alternative to expanding Medicaid under the federal Affordable Care Act. House members voted 7445 to reject the Senate pro posal. The vote came after about four hours of debate, with Democrats saying the Senate plan would provide needed health coverage to the working poor. RIMS: Officer surprised Continued From Page 1A KIDS: Sons, daughters go to work at FDOT Continued From Page 1A During the speed studies, traffic operations engineers use laser and radar guns to track traffic on state roads throughout the 18-county jurisdiction of FDOTs District 2. According to Busscher, the event showcased nearly 35 different jobs available at the department. This is the first year the event took place entirely at the FDOT office building. In the past, the day has included trips to local construction sites or to the manufacturing shop for traffic signs. This year, the Florida Highway Patrol also demonstrated how a police dog takes down an offender, and how the dogs sniff out weapons and illegal drugs. Bobbi Brannon took her grand son, Devin, to the event. She felt he really enjoyed seeing the dogs in action because he has a German shepherd at home. I wanted to let him see what the DOT does because I can assure you the general public has no idea what goes on here, Brannon said. The day included aspects from a normal DOT project from the design stage to testing materials and finally to maintenance. Gina puts together a great pro gram, she said. We have a lot of hands-on activities. Each child got the chance to climb aboard common equipment used by the FDOT, such as a dump truck and front-end loader. In the Information Technology Training room, the children built bridges on West point Bridge Designer. After constructing the bridge, they got to test to see if their structure would hold up to the weight of different vehicles. The dig ital bridge collapsed on the screen if the trucks weight was too much. This shows them different careers right here in Lake City, Busscher said. You dont have to move to Jacksonville, Gainesville, Miami or Orlando to find a career you love. The event also gave the children a chance to step inside their parents shoes. When the Take Your Child to Work Day ends at 3 p.m., similar to a normal school day, the students usually stay the rest of the day work ing in their parents office. District Programs Administrator Katrina Sadler brought her son Zane, 9, to work on Thursday. It was his second time coming to FDOT for the event. Sadler said she enjoys let ting her son see, and be involved in, what she does at work. Hes able to see how we fit in together as a team, she said. According to Zane, his favorite part of the day was learning about compression and tension when building the bridge. His bridge failed when he tested it, but last year, he got it to work. When the students finished the day, they were given a cer tificate labeling them, Junior Transportation Specialists. After the radar guns were stashed away and students filed back inside the FDOT building, many of the children walked back to the breakroom for sodas and cold air. Thats an unauthorized break, you know, Busscher said. We might have to dock you guys. City man charged after disturbance House rejects Senates Medicaid overhaul plan

O n Monday, 1,500 air-traffic controllers -10 percent of the total -were furloughed for the day pursuant to a budget deal Congress agreed on last August that none of the lawmakers thought would ever come to pass. Briefly, it looked as if the air-traffic-control system, with a little bit of luck and some cooperation from the weather, might escape relatively unscathed. But high winds at New York’s three main airports caused delays of one to three hours, which rippled though the system, causing delays as far away as Miami and Los Angeles. An ice storm in Denver didn’t help. Three airlines -US Airways, JetBlue and Delta -were forced to cancel some flights. And the Federal Aviation Administration says the situation will only get worse during this sum-mer’s peak travel season, with 6,700 flights daily arriving late at major airports and one-third of passengers experiencing delays. By contrast, on the worst travel day of 2012, severe weather forced the delays of 3,000 flights. The cutbacks are due to the notorious “sequestration” that forces government agencies to live with severe budget cuts until Congress relents, agrees on a “grand bargain” deficit-cutting deal or enacts a sensi-ble budget for the fiscal year begin-ning Oct. 1. Critics, including some airline-industry executives and some members of Congress, accuse the FAA of planning to create the maximum amount of chaos in hopes that an infuriated public will force Congress to back off and restore at least some funding. The FAA responds that it has to find some way to cut $200 million out of its budget, and the simplest, most cost-effective way to do it is have 10 percent of its controllers be off one day a week from now until Oct. 1. In addition, the FAA plans to close almost 150 control towers at small and medium-size airports on June 15. Air-traffic controllers complain, with some justice, that they are being used as a political football between the administration and Congress. Congress, despite its insistence that this time it really means it, has carved out exceptions in the sequester -such as meat inspec-tions and a military tuition program, to name two. One-size-fits-all government never really works, and Congress will soon have to decide whether the savings extracted from the FAA budget outweigh the economic damage done by crippling air travel.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman After years of stalling out, a texting while driving ban is approaching the check-ered flag in the Florida Legislature. But the bill is as weak as a Yugo pulling a trailer up a steep hill. Last week the Senate unanimously passed the bill. That leaves approval from the House and Gov. Rick Scott’s signature as the final milestones before the measure becomes law. The House, which could vote this week, should pass the bill, and Scott should sign it. Florida is one of only five states that don’t ban texting behind the wheel, despite abundant evidence of its deadly dangers. But lawmakers also should consider this year’s overdue action only a start toward making Florida’s roads safer from texting drivers. Studies have shown that sending or reading a text takes a driver’s eyes off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, enough to cover the length of a football field when driving 55 mph. The bill, sponsored in the Senate by Venice Republican Nancy Detert, would make texting while driving a secondary offense, meaning police couldn’t stop drivers who are texting unless they commit a primary offense, such as reckless driving. First-time tex-ting offenders would pay just $30, plus court costs. It’s hard to see such a weak law deterring many drivers and making a real dent in the problem. Red-light run-ners, by contrast, pay $158 tickets. Florida used to have a similarly weak law requiring seat-belt use, but law-makers finally strengthened it in 2009.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Q Orlando Sentinel U.S.-Mexican border welcomes terroristsT here are at least 7,518 reasons to get the U.S.-Mexican border under control. That equals the number of aliens apprehended in fiscal year 2011 from the four nations that federal officials label “state sponsors of terrorism” plus 10 “countries of interest.” Since January 2010, those flying into the United States via these 14 nations face enhanced screening. As the Transportation Security Administration announced at the time: “Effective aviation security must begin beyond our borders.” U.S. national security merits at least that much vigilance on our borders. The roaring immigration-reform debate largely addresses Hispanic aliens who illegally cross the bor-der. Far more worrisome, however, are the thousands who break into the United States from countries “where we have concerns, particu-larly about al-Qaida affiliates,” a top State Department official told CNN. These include Cubans, Iranians, Sudanese and Syrians, whose gov-ernments are federally designated “state sponsors of terrorism.” As Customs and Border Protection’s “2011 Yearbook of Immigration Statistics” reports, 198 Sudanese were nabbed while penetrating the USA. Between fiscal years 2002 and 2011, such arrests totaled 1,207. (These figures cover all U.S. borders, although 96.3 percent of detainees crossed from Mexico.) Like other immigrants, most Sudanese seek better lives here. But some may be vectors for the same militant Islam that tore Sudan in two -literally. In FY 2011, 108 Syrians were stopped; over the previous 10 years, 1,353 were. Syria supports Hezbollah, and Bashar al-Assad’s unstable regime reportedly has attacked its domestic opponents with chemical weapons. Among Iranians, 276 were caught in FY 2011, while 2,310 were cap-tured over the previous 10 years. Iran also backs Hezbollah, hates “The Great Satan” -its name for the United States -and craves atomic weapons. The other 10 “countries of interest” are Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Yemen and: -Afghanistan, the Taliban’s stronghold and current theater of America’s longest war. (Afghans halted in FY 2011: 106; prior 10 years: 681.) -Nigeria. The land of underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab suffers under Sharia law in its northern provinces. (Respective data: 591 and 4,525.) -Pakistan, hideaway of the Pakistani Taliban and the late Osama bin Laden (525 and 10,682). -Saudi Arabia, generous benefactor of radical imams and militant mosques worldwide; birthplace of 15 of the 19 Sept. 11 hijackers (123 and 986). -Somalia. Home of Indian Ocean pirates and al-Qaida’s al-Shabaab franchise. In October 1993, Islamic terrorists there shot down two Black Hawk helicopters, killed 18 U.S. soldiers and dragged several of their bodies through Mogadishu’s streets (323 and 1,524). The House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Oversight last November published “A Line in the Sand: Countering Crime, Violence, and Terror at the Southwest Border.” This study offers chilling portraits of some who consider the southern border America’s welcome mat. -On Jan. 11, 2011, U.S. agents discovered Said Jaziri in a car trunk trying to enter near San Diego. Jaziri traveled from his native Tunisia to Tijuana, he said, and paid smugglers $5,000 to sneak him across the border. France previ-ously convicted and deported him for assaulting a Muslim whom he considered insufficiently devout. In 2006, Jaziri advocated killing Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard for creating what Jaziri called sacri-legious drawings of the Prophet Mohammed. -Somalia’s Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane told authorities in 2011 that he earned up to $75,000 per day smuggling East Africans into America. His clients included three al-Shabaab terrorists. As the House paper states: “Dhakane cautioned that each of these individuals is ready to die for their cause....” -On June 4, 2010, Anthony Joseph Tracy was convicted of con-spiring to slip aliens into America. Tracy told federal investigators that Cuban diplomats used his travel agency in Kenya to transfer 272 Somalis to Havana. They pro-ceeded to Belize, through Mexico, and then trespassed into the USA. Tracy claims he refused to assist al-Shabaab. But officials discovered an e-mail in which he casually wrote: “...i helped a lot of Somalis and most are good but there are some who are bad and i leave them to ALLAH...” Remember: These anecdotes and statistics involve individuals whom authorities intercepted. No details exist about aliens who successfully infiltrated America.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, April 26 & 27, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A 6AF&V Members to be like children O ne time, in the min-istry of Jesus, “peo-ple were bringing children to Him so that He might touch them; and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and said to them, ‘Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it at all’” (Mark 10:13-15). As we meditate upon this event, it seems very strange that Jesus would have a feel-ing of strong displeasure at the disciples for “rebuking” the people because they brought the children to Jesus. He must have felt that His disciples were offensive, unjust or insulting to these people and these children. Indignant is a very strong word that is used by the writer to describe the emotions of Jesus. This reaction is not what we nor-mally think of when we think of Jesus. We normally think of Him as being very gentle and under-standing. Another thing we can see from this event is that Jesus was very aggressive in His reaction to the disciples. Although we do not know why this would have generated such a strong emotion within Jesus, we know that He did not sin because of what He said to the disciples (Ephesians 4:26; Hebrews 4:15). One almost wonders why Jesus reacted in such a manner. But now, let us consider what Jesus said to the disciples. Instead of preventing the chil-dren to come to Him, Jesus “took them in His arms” (Mark 10:16) thus giving a visual as to how the children should be treated. Jesus admired the characteristics of the children so much that He told the disciples, and those around them, two things about the “kingdom of God.” He said, “The kingdom of God belongs to such as these” and secondly, members in the kingdom of God must have char-acteristics similar to those of these children. These two statements give us some insight to the membership of the kingdom of God. Like chil-dren, the members must have a trusting attitude in their Father. They must be willing to accept the idea that they are going to be well taken care of because they are members of the king-dom of God. They are not wor-ried about their “needs” because they have the utmost confidence in their Father that He will pro-vide for every necessity. T he longer we are adults, the more we tend to rely upon our-selves to provide for our needs and think less on the fact that God will provide. A second characteristic of children that members in the kingdom must possess is a desire to please their Father. It is only when children get older that they begin to rebel against what their father wants them to do. However, the smaller chil-dren always want to please their father. They may not always “obey” what their Father says, but they have a desire to please him. Maybe the reason why Jesus spoke with such force to the disciples is that they did not truly understand this concept of the kingdom being composed of “children.” Maybe Jesus had such strong feelings against the disciples because they were turning “chil-dren” away from coming to see Him. Maybe Jesus just wanted to get their attention after see-ing how “rude” they were to the children. To better understand membership into the kingdom of God, maybe we should spend more time looking at the character of children and not considering them “unworthy of His time.” L ast week we talked about what the filling of the Holy Spirit will do for you. This week we want to answer the question “How can I have the filling of the Spirit?”. My prayer is that God will help everyone who names the name of Jesus as their Savior to seek to be filled with the Spirit of God. First of all, to be filled with the Spirit one must have inter-est in being filled. Jesus said “If any man thirst, let him come unto Me and drink” (John 7:37b). No one can be filled with the Spirit unless he thirst for the power of the Spirit. A problem with the Church today is not enough have a deep concern to be filled. We just don’t realize how powerless our lives are. If we did, we would pray “Lord, fill me up and use me”. Many years ago I recall hearing a story of two young men just out of Bible school visiting a country church. The preacher did not do a very good job with his message and as they left the church one of the young men said “With the help of God I could have done as well as he.” The other one said “I could have beat him without God’s help.” Do you suppose that is a problem today, we with all our education, we are trying to do God’s work without His help. “It is not by might, nor by power, but by God’s Spirit,” the work will be done. The second thing we must do is be clean. Acts chapter 15 tells us that it is necessary for the heart to be purified by faith. Paul connects the receiving of the Holy Spirit with purifying ones self. This is God’s way. No one will ever be filled with the Spirit until he first cleans himself by confession (I John 1:9). To be filled with the Spirit means to be controlled by Him. How could this happen if the Devil controls part of us. Matthew 6:24 says “No man can serve two masters.” We must thirdly claim the promise by faith of Jesus as found in John 16:7-11. He promised He “would send the Comforter to us.” I John 2:1 tells us “we can have an advocate with the Father”; that means we have someone along side to give assistance when we need it. The next step is to dedicate or devote ourselves to God and the study of His word. This is the very heart of the matter. To be filled with the Spirit means He is in control of ones life, not part of, but all of. The reason so many are not every filled with the Spirit is because so many are not willing to be controlled by the Spirit. Many like to talk about it, but when it comes time to yield to the Spirit, they are often to busy with the things of the world. We should pray: “Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way! Thou art the potter, I am the clay! Mold me and make me after Thy will, While I am wait-ing, yielded and still.” (Adelaide A.

The elderly minis-ter had always prayed for just two things: wisdom and understanding. God had blessed him with this, as with Solomon of old. One of the members who attended his small church was very rich. He had climbed his way up the corporate ladder and was now CEO. He attended church every week. One Sunday afternoon, they had a dinner on the ground, and the old minister sat with him. He said to him, “I know giving is a private mat-ter, but I have just wondered why your contribution has not increased over the years?” The rich member replied, “Well, when I was beginning, we were giving about 15 percent of our income. It was hard, but we enjoyed giving it. But now that I have made it big, it’s just not rea-sonable to give that amount.” They finished their meal, and were ready for dessert, and the minister asked him if they could have a brief prayer. They bowed, and he began, “Dear God, I praise your Name for the way you have followed this man’s career with favor. You have showered him and his fam-ily with blessings which, at the beginning could not be imag-ined. Please, Lord, return him to the beginning days, when he was just a low entry workman. Reduce his salary to the level then, where he can give liberally as he once did. After all, Lord, you have never been interested in the amount which one gives, just the proportion and the atti-tude of the heart where the gift comes from. Bless him that he can once again become generous as he once was. Amen” Paul said, “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctant-ly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:6-8). Giving is a grace, not a law. Yet principles and laws apply, like the one mentioned above. While tithing is an Old Testament law, and Christians are free from this, Christians grow best under grace, than under law. Giving is individual, and private. Be careful in judg-ing the motives and hearts of others. Don’t threaten, or guilt Christians into giving. It won’t (and shouldn’t) work. Just encourage brethren to grow in grace, and let them enjoy the whole process. Jesus said, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good mea-sure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you” (Luke 6:38). “Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd put-ting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his dis-ciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.” (Mark 12:41-44).

She put in everythingA n ad popped up on my computer the other day that said, “Change your life in 30 seconds or less!” Chalk it up to a curiosity, coupled with 30 seconds to spare, and I double-clicked. Seems I could purchase one DVD for $19.95, five for $59.95, or 10 for $99.95, I guess the 30 seconds is actually the minimum amount of time you need to decide how much change you could afford, little or a lot. This really got me thinking, so I decided to type in “change your life” on my search engine. it was amazing! Not only can you change your life in 30 seconds, if you want to take a little longer, you can also do it in seven days, 30 different ways, in 10 steps or take up to a whole year. There were at least 10 pages of pos-sibilities. This almost unending supply of opportunities to change is no doubt available to meet the demand and desire of folks look-ing for a better way … a better life. There is also no limit to the things we wish to change: our financial situation, jobs, health, looks, and relationships, and heaven knows some of those things are screaming for change. However, change, just for the sake of change, is not always good. There are lots of paths out there, but simply jumping from one wrong road to another still won’t get us to our desired desti-nation. The cry to “change your life” takes on the hollow ring of an empty promise. This reminded me of a conversation I read recently that is recorded in the Bible between Moses and the people of Israel. Nearing the end of his life, Moses reminded the Israelites of God’s promises and instructions, and then: “When Moses finished reciting all these worlds to all Israel, he said to them, ‘Take to heart all the words I have solemnly declared to you this day, so that you may command your children to obey carefully all the words of this law. They are not just idle words for you — they are your life. By them you will live long in the land you are cross-ing the Jordan to possess.’” — Deuteronomy 32:45-47 Right away I noticed a stark difference between Moses’ claim and the recent advertisements: One offered to change your life, the other to be your life. This is significant because simply bring-ing change leaves the door open to changing back to the old way or taking another wrong road. When God’s words become our life, they supply durability, stabil-ity and immovability. This thought is echoed in Proverbs 4:20-22: “My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.” Life and health, aren’t they on the list of what we want to change? And once the positive change occurs, wouldn’t it be nice if it actually stayed? Again, God’s word offers to become the life and health, not simply the change to our relationships. However, let me assure you this is no 30-second cure. Whatever change we seek begins with one step into a journey of meeting God in His word … and it contin-ues for a lifetime. Our primary goal for the Heart Matters column has been and remains to be a road sign, point-ing the way to strong, healthy relationships through God’s Word and His ways ... because every heart really does matter.

Over 1,700 people filled the main sanctuary of Mountaintop Ministries Worldwide to see the first local concert by Spirit and Truth Worship. Attendees came from as far away as Racine, Wis., and Cancun, Mexico to hear the praise and worship band. Charlie Sparks, lead pastor of Mountaintop Ministries’ Lake City con-gregation, welcomed the crowd. He invited them to “weep, raise your hands, clap and stomp your feet” along with the music. A powerful video presentation explained the “Alive” theme as the victory of life over death, signified by Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. The music began with several energetic wor-ship songs that had the audience on their feet from the start. The theme was carried through the night with songs that celebrated living for Christ and shar-ing that life with others. Selections performed by the group ranged from a solo singer/songwriter who accompanied himself on guitar, to full-band cov-ers of well-known Christian hits like “I Can Only Imagine.” The band consisted of eight to 12 musicians, depending on the song, and about 22 singers who shared the lead roles. It was clear that those involved viewed this as more of an expression of praise than just a perfor-mance. The singers and musicians motivated the crowd with the passion and energy they put into every song. The music flowed from their hearts that wanted to give their best to God.

Like most music director’s offices, his shelves are covered with books, CDs and other things related to music. A closer look, however, and you’ll see books of Shakespearean plays and other literature. Bumgarner isn’t just about music, he’s also a playwright. The music director has been writing plays since 1994, and it hasn’t just been a casual hobby. It’s a passion that Bumgarner, 60, has found success in. While he was music director at First Presbyterian in Kingsport, Tenn., Bumgarner began searching for a Christmas play that he liked. That search wasn’t bearing any fruit. His daughter, Sarah, suggested he write the play himself, so he did. Bumgarner wrote his first play, “Accommodations,” for the church’s Christmas service that year. The play is about a family in the 1960s. Everything was going wrong for them. Through a comedic sequence of events, they ended up accommodating lots of visitors because of a winter storm, which leads to lessons learned and a crazy, chaotic Christmas. Once he finished the first play, Bumgarner knew he was hooked. “It’s just very satisfying,” he said. “It’s like writing a piece of music, but easier.” Since that first play, Bumgarner has written 70 plays. Most are tailored for middle schoolers and high schoolers to per-form. His plays combine a humor and silliness that lends itself to those ages. “There’s a market for it,” he said. “I remember being that age. I see them performing these plays and they’re happy.” Another element is that Bumgarner wants to inspire the kids to love the-ater beyond high school. Teacher of the year honoredBy DONNA GORDON BLANKINSHIPAssociated PressSEATTLE — A Washington state science teacher who helped trans-form his small school into a place where nearly every student graduates with some college credit was named as national teacher of the year. Zillah High School’s Jeff Charbonneau is state teacher of the year and was announced Monday as the national winner by the Council of Chief State School Officers. Principal Mike Torres said Charbonneau, 35, has added a lot to the school located in Washington’s Yakima Valley and has inspired other teachers to push themselves. “Jeff is one of our many instructors that make Zillah High School a special place,” Torres said. “The level of passion that he has for teaching is contagious.” Torres also gives Charbonneau credit for helping push more kids to continue learning after high school. Ninety percent of last year’s graduating class went on to continue their learning, either at college, in an apprenticeship pro-gram or the military. Those numbers have a lot to do with a program Charbonneau started to help students get college credit for the classes they take at the high school but not through Advanced Placement tests. Seventy-two classes at Zillah High School can result in credits from Central Washington University, Eastern Washington University or local community colleges. Torres would like to keep Charbonneau right where he is, teaching sci-ence classes at his alma mater, but he also recog-nizes what he could share with teachers and others across the nation. “When I look at his background and how he carries himself, I think he would be a great representative for education across the nation,” Torres said. “I feel like he can compete with anyone for national teacher of the year.” The teacher-of-the year program began in 1952 to focus public attention on excellence in teach-ing. The winner is recog-nized by President Barack Obama in a White House ceremony, scheduled for Tuesday. Charbonneau started teaching in 2001 at Zillah, the same school he attend-ed. He teaches chemis-try, physics, engineering and architecture. He also runs a statewide robotics competition and serves as yearbook adviser for the 400-student school. His favorite part of teaching is being present at the moment of discovery for a student. “When they get it and they have that ‘aha moment.’ There’s really nothing that matches that,” he said. Charbonneau said he breaks down topics into small enough steps that students can grasp each one and gain confidence as they advance and accom-plish what they want. The nation should feel the same way about public schools, he said. “Nothing in life is truly hard,” Charbonneau said. “We are not a nation of failing schools. When I hear that I literally cringe,” he said. “There is so much going right with education that we ignore.” He does believe there’s still work to be done, including addressing the achievement gap between students from differ-ent ethnic and economic groups. The three other finalists were Rhonda Holmes-Blankenship, an English teacher from Maryland; Alex S. Lopes, a special education teacher from Florida; and Heidi Welch, a music teacher from New Hampshire.

Who did this?Why?Will there be more bombings now? Children can be inquisitive, especially when tragic national news seeps into their lives. Local advice experts say parents and educators must be open to questions, remain reas-suring and to turn off the television in an effort to prevent oversaturation. “I think limiting their exposure to the news is the biggest thing,” said Amy Johnson, a psycholo-gist with the Waynesboro Public Schools. “Even for ourselves as adults, it’s too much sometimes.” Johnson said that when it comes to acts of terrorism, the National Association of School Psychologists makes a number of sug-gestions for adults when dispensing advice to chil-dren, including modeling calm and control, sticking to the facts, being truth-ful and reassuring children that they are safe. “These are things we should do with our kids all the time,” she said. Chuck Bishop, superintendent of the Augusta County Public Schools, said situations like Monday’s bombings can give teach-ers and parents an opportu-nity to speak with students “to talk about the facts as we know them now. I think parents should be open.” Bishop also concurred that parents should limit the amount of time their children spend in front of the television following a national tragedy. “You can spend countless hours watching CNN or Fox, but the focus is on all the bad stuff,” he said. Social media, a constant presence these days for many school-aged chil-dren, can also exacer-bate the situation, Bishop said. “It’s tough to wade through what’s fact and what’s not.” Bishop, like Johnson, also stressed that parents and teachers must work to reassure the children and let them know they are safe. Carolyn Marion, a counselor at Augusta Psychological Associates in Fishersville, agreed. “As in any tragedy, you have to reassure your chil-dren they’re as safe as can be,” Marion said. “Try to reassure them that who-ever did this will be found and taken care of.” Marion said anxiety concerning a national tragedy could normally last up to two weeks for a child. “These sort of things may trigger underlying anxieties they may already have,” she said. “If that persists, they should come in and be evaluated.” Parents, teachers should be open to kids’ questions.ASSOCIATED PRESSA man shields a young boy from the carnage in the afterm ath of the April 15 bombings in Boston, Mass. When kids become worried by such tragedie s, parents and teachers need to be open, honest and reassuring, experts say. New book explains court to childrenAssociated PressVICKSBURG, Miss. — A prosecutor’s office has developed a book for children that uses simple language to describe the court process and all the key players a child might see inside the courtroom. “Court For Kids” was put together by victim assistance coordina-tor Susie Calbert, who worked as a court-appoint-ed children’s advocate before joining the district attorney’s office. The district attorney’s office ordered 250 of the books, which were paid for by a grant provided though the Victims of Crime Act. “You want to provide an environment that’s nurtur-ing and friendly and safe so they can trust you,” Calbert told the Vicksburg Post. “When they come here and see the people they have identified in the book, they are more open.” Every week, the district attorney’s office sees two to three cases when children are victims or witnesses, said District Attorney Ricky Smith. “It’s an idea that we had thought about doing sever-al years ago but just didn’t have the manpower to do it,” Smith said. “We have always thought that we have needed something to help the kids.” Calbert said the book is targeted at children younger than 12. She said the information might help any family member who is unfamiliar with the judicial process. “It’s an easy read and parents can read it and it will help them understand as well,” Calbert said. Each page also contains illustrations and there is space for children to write about their feelings about being in court or write a short letter to someone they feel has helped them through the process. ASSOCIATED PRESSA witness points to people in the courtroom while a judg e listens. A prosecutor’s office in Vicksburg, Miss., has de veloped a book that helps explain court activities to childr en, who are ever more frequently involved in legal proced ings.

Rivers Library during a Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce mixer on Thursday. BUDGET: Pet projects threatened Continued From Page 1A already set aside money for everything from a statewide multi-use trail to light house renovations and bal let academies. The GOP governor said he expected legislators to come to him and justify why state taxpayers should spend money on those hometown projects. Im responsible for all 19.2 million Floridians and I want to make sure we get a good return on invest ment, Scott said short ly after a bill signing on Thursday. Scotts tone may only worsen relations between him and lawmakers. He has already ques tioned a bill that raises campaign contribution limits and hinted that he might veto it. Lawmakers responded by shipping the bill to him on Wednesday night. That means Scott must act on the legislation by May 1, which could be before legislators have acted on his priorities. Scotts top priorities include both a $2,500 across-the-board pay raise for teachers and a tax break for manufacturers who purchase equipment. Both appear to be in jeop ardy with a week left before lawmakers adjourn the ses sion on May 3. Legislators have agreed to set aside money for the teacher pay raise but have continued to insist the raise be tied to teacher perfor mance instead of giving all teachers the same amount. Scott has responded to this news by pointing out that all teachers deserve a raise because Floridas national education rankings have improved. Senate President Don Gaetz said that Scott who was elected in 2010 has to learn that the legislative process requires compromise. He said that neither he nor House Speaker Will Weatherford, Wesley Chapel, have got ten everything they want this session. I would suspect that another thing the governor will learn is that he will not get everything he wants, Gaetz said. To emphasize that point, the Senate did not take up several bills on Thursday that are being pushed by the governors office even though they are not his top priorities. One of the bills would help carry out an agreement that Scott forged with the federal govern ment over the Everglades. Lawmakers have until May 3 to pass a proposed $74 billion budget. They have agreed already on many items, but they still need to finalize spend ing recommendations on everything from tuition hikes to the level of pay raises for state workers. Law bans newest designer drugs Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott has signed into law a measure that adds 27 new designer drugs to the states controlled sub stances list. The bill (HB 619) was signed on Wednesday. The new law now makes it a third-degree felony for someone to make or sell the specified drugs, or possess them with intent to sell. Attorney General Pam Bondi explained that the drugs have street names such as incense, pot pourri, K2, spice and bath salts. The synthetic drugs can cause hallucinations, sei zures, paranoia and psy chotic episodes, among other symptoms.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Columbia High Lady Tigers scratched, clawed and grabbed a 2-1 victory in Thursday night’s opening round of the state playoffs against the Middleburg High Broncos at the Columbia softball field. Executing a squeeze bunt and pitching were the key components in the victory as the game remained tied at 0-0 going into the bottom of the fifth inning — even though CHS had a base runner aboard each inning. The Lady Tigers (24-4) took the lead in the bot-tom of the fifth inning with two outs, when Brittany Morgan beat out a bunt that was followed by single from Kayli Kvistad. Morgan moved to third base on the throw and Kvistad moved to second. Morgan scored when the Middleburg catcher made a snap throw to third base that got away from the third baseman. A fly out to center field ended the scoring threat. Middleburg (11-14) tied the game in the top of the sixth inning when Shelby Lacy yanked the first pitch she saw over the left-center field fence. The Lady Tigers pounced back in the bottom of the inning with timely hitting and by executing a squeeze bunt. Brandy Morgan doubled to left center on a 3-2 pitch to lead off the inning and was moved to third base with a sacrifice bunt. Hollianne Dohrn followed with a squeeze bunt that scored Morgan. Columbia sacrificed again, moving the runner into scoring position, but the threat ended with an infield ground out. Erin Anderson entered the game with two outs in top of the sixth inning and got the win. She struck out two batters, walked one and gave up a single. Ashley Shoup started in the circle for the Lady Tigers and pitched 6 23 innings before giving way to Anderson. Shoup allowed two hits, struck out three, walked one and hit a batter. Shoup didn’t allow a hit until the third inning — a seeing-eye single that dropped behind the second base bag. Lady Tigers’ head coach Jimmy Williams said the game went fast and Shoup pitched a great game. “She only gave up one run and if she’ll do that every single game I’ll be happy,” Williams said. “We had to scrap (for the win).

T he FHSAA assignments for fall and winter sports are mostly completed. There is still time to file an appeal. This might be the final run for the FHSAA with the legislature’s plan to gut the organization and turn Florida into a free agency state for prep sports.

The core districts for volleyball, basketball, softball and baseball are set, though not officially announced for the latter two sports.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Williston High defended its District 5-4A baseball championship with a 5-3 win over host Fort White High on Thursday. The Red Devils (19-5) came back from a 3-0 defi-cit to make a winner out of freshman left-hander Austin Langworthy. When Fort White faced Langworthy in the regular season, he pitched a three-hitter and won the game 2-1. The Indians topped that run total on consecu-tive home runs by Kevin Dupree and Willie Carter with two outs in the first inning. Fort White added another run in the third inning. Kody Moniz led off with a single, but was forced at second on a bunt by Brady Wilkinson. Dupree followed with a single on a full count to put runners at the cor-ners. Carter notched his second RBI with a ground ball. “I liked the way we came out,” Fort White head coach Mike Rizzi said. “The guys battled hard all the way through. I was happy about the way they competed.” Dupree’s hit would turn out to be the last one for the Indians, as the Red Devils got the lead and Langworthy settled in. He retired 12 of the next 14 batters and struck out six in a row at one point. He finished with 10 Ks. Cody Head pitched a 1-2-3 seventh inning for the save. “(Langworthy) got his velocity up a little bit after we got ahead,” Williston head coach Scott Hall said. “It was a great job by our young men to get behind and come back and win the game. I told them to be patient and they were.” Williston’s four-run rally in the third inning began with a one-out double by Jared Carson. Tey Hammonds was hit by a pitch and Langworthy reached on an error on a hard-hit ball. Haydn Cano doubled in two runs and Justin Forsythe followed with an RBI-single. Courtesy runner Shykel Rembert scored on anoth-er error on a ground-ball shot. The Red Devils scored a run in the fourth inning on singles by Dalton Spikes, Hammonds and Langworthy. Lane Pendergrast started on the mound for Fort White and went four innings with three earned runs and two strikeouts. Kevin Dupree relieved and got six outs, one when Trace Wilkinson threw out a runner on an attempted steal. “We started out strong, but we lost energy when we had that bad inning and he gained energy,” Rizzi said. “Kevin threw well and that gives us another bullet going into the playoffs.” Fort White (14-10) will travel for its first-round game, which will be played Wednesday. More districts announced By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comJACKSONVILLE — Colombia High had one district opponent it had yet to beat and the Tigers got another shot in the District 4-6A championship on Thursday. The last time Columbia took on Atlantic Coast High the Stingrays were nearly perfect. This time, they weren’t perfect, but good enough to hand the Tigers a 7-3 loss to claim the crown. Things looked good for Columbia early on as the Tigers scored two runs in the first inning. Caleb Vaughn led off the game with a bunt single and moved to third after Sam Bass reached on an error. The Tigers picked up their first run when Levi Hollingsworth hit a sacrifice fly to score Vaughn. Columbia made it 2-0 when Dalton Mauldin hit another sac fly to bring in Bass. Vaughn also started on the mound, but didn’t last long. Vaughn was roughed up for four runs in the first inning and pulled midway through the second after giving up his fifth run. Atlantic Coast scored four runs off two sepa-rate two-run shots. Nick Kosowski tied the game at 2-2 with a shot over right field to score Terry Bennett and the Stingrays gained control for good with Cole Perry’s homer to score Evan Fernandez. Zach Greene singled in David Moses to end Vaughn’s day and Brent Stalter would come in to pitch four innings for the Tigers. Stalter had a wild pitch to allow Greene to score and give Atlantic Coast a 6-2 lead after two innings, but held strong afterwards. Atlantic Coast didn’t add it’s final run until the bot-tom of the sixth with a sacrifice by Terry Bennett to score Moses. Stalter went four innings, allowed two hits, struck out four and walked four while giving up two earned runs. Vaughn gave up six hits and five runs while regis-tering a strikeout. Jordan Culp pitched the final two outs for the Tigers. Luis Cabarello picked up the win for the Stingrays after pitching five innings, allowing three hits, issuing six walks, and striking out four batters. Sean Sausfield picked up the save with two scoreless innings in which he struck out two batters and walked another.

ASSOCIATED PRESSCentral Michigan’s Eric Fisher stands with NFL Commissio ner Roger Goodell after being selected first overall by the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL football draft on Thursday at Radio City Music Hall in New York.Bring the beefAssociated PressNEW YORK — NFL teams bought in bulk in Thursday night’s draft. Unlike the last few years when bumper crops of quarterbacks reigned, this was pure brawn: more than 600 pounds at the outset with offensive tackles Eric Fisher of Central Michigan and Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M. The first seven picks were all linemen: four on offense, three on defense. Not until Florida State’s EJ Manuel went to Buffalo at No. 16 was a quarter-back taken — the lowest since 2000, when Chad Pennington went 18th to the Jets. Fisher became the first Mid-American Conference player selected at the top when Kansas City’s new regime led by coach Andy Reid chose the 6-foot-7, 306-pound offensive tackle. Fisher was followed by All-American Joeckel going to Jacksonville, defensive end Dion Jordan of Oregon to Miami, which traded up with Oakland, and Oklahoma tackle Lane Johnson to Philadelphia. The procession of linemen continued with BYU defensive end Ziggy Ansah, born in Ghana, going to Detroit; LSU defensive end Barkevious Mingo to Cleveland; and North Carolina guard Jonathan Cooper to Arizona.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 26-27, 2013 DEAR ABBY: “Jake” and I have been married more than 20 years. I mar-ried before I was 18, and I’m not even 40 yet. Jake is seven years my senior. We have had our ups and downs, and although the last five years have been fine, I want more out of life than sitting home watch-ing TV or hanging out with him. We have two children. One is away at college and the other starting high school. When I talk to my husband about wanting to do things, he says I should have done them when I was younger. But I mar-ried him before I was even an adult! Jake insists we don’t need counseling and I just need to get over it and accept that this is my life. What if I don’t want to regret what I have never had a chance to do? -WANTS MORE OUT WEST DEAR WANTS MORE: I’m sorry, but you can’t relive your lost teenage years. I wish you had been more specific about what it is you want to do. If it’s go out and have some fun, perhaps some of your girlfriends would like to go with you. Instead of sitting home, you and Jake could socialize with other cou-ples. If you’re into sports, why not join a women’s sports team? If you’re not, how about a book club? You don’t have to sit around and vegetate. You also didn’t mention whether you completed high school. If you didn’t receive a diploma, you would be well-served to work on earning your GED, which could widen your horizons and oppor-tunities considerably. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I have two daughters, 11 and 14. They fight over many things, but what gets to me is the way they fight over what televi-sion shows to watch. My younger daughter has nightmares if she watches even mildly dra-matic cop/lawyer-type shows. However, my older daughter loves them. At home, I’d have one kid watch TV in one room and the other in the other room. However, when they’re at the sitter’s house, which has only one TV, they call me at work and fight over the phone over who watches what. They both accuse me of favoring the other. How do I deal with this fairly without upsetting them? And how do I keep my younger daughter from having nightmares? -DOING MY BEST IN KENTUCKY DEAR DOING: Because your younger daughter has nightmares after viewing shows that create anxiety, she shouldn’t be forced to do it. When they are at their sitter’s, they should alternate days when each has control of the remote control. When your older girl has it, the younger one should be encouraged to read a book of her choos-ing and/or listen to music. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Christmas and birthday gifts I will never use have accumu-lated around my house. I’d like to have a yard sale, but many of the items came from close friends and fam-ily. I feel guilty getting rid of them because the people who gave them to me obvi-ously meant well. Would selling them be wrong? One gift was from my mother. I live at home, so she will notice if I stick it in the garage sale. I can’t let this extra stuff sit around. It’s taking up space and I need the money for a very expen-sive college. But I’m afraid of people finding out that I don’t want their pres-ents. What should I do? -DOWNSIZING IN NEW YORK DEAR DOWNSIZING: Selling the items would not be wrong. Once a gift is given, it is yours to do with as you please. If you offer them for sale online, it will be less obvious and cause fewer hurt feelings. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I am a 13-year-old girl and my parents won’t let me date. I believe I am mature for my age and won’t do anything foolish. I don’t know why my parents are being like this. Please give me some advice on how to persuade them. -REALLY READY IN NEW HAMPSHIRE DEAR REALLY READY: Although you think you are ready to start dating, your parents will have to make the ultimate deci-sion on when you enter the “dating game.” Their decision will most likely be based on whether you have demonstrated the beginnings of emotional maturity. Here’s how: You need to have proven to them you can handle respon-sibility, carry out school assignments and chores, be honest with them and keep your word. It will also depend upon whether they know the boy in question, and whether HE is respon-sible enough to be trusted with their most precious possession, which is you. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 27 years to a man who is a church pastor. We have had to move every six to eight years, partly because he was repeatedly unfaithful. We have gone through his alcoholism, gambling and womanizing, and my two suicide attempts. We have been trying to work things out, but I suspect that he’s back to his old ways. I work part-time, but haven’t been able to find a full-time job after our most recent move, so I am finan-cially dependent on him. I have two adult children who don’t live near me. Most of the people I know are through the church, and they are all great sup-porters of my husband. I feel trapped, and I don’t know how to fix my life at this point. Have you any suggestions? -TRAPPED ON THE EAST COAST DEAR TRAPPED: You will have to do it in stages. The first should be to talk with a licensed therapist who is not associated with the church. It will help you to clarify your thinking and become more emotionally stabilized. Next, continue looking for full-time employment. If necessary, start by volunteering. It will help to widen your circle of acquaintances and perhaps lead to a job. Then, once you are feeling better about yourself, you will be better able to decide what to do about your unhappy marriage. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: After being diagnosed with mul-tiple sclerosis last year, I moved 900 miles from home. Shortly after the move, my dog had to be put to sleep. My M.S. then flared up and I was admit-ted to the hospital. After my third day there I was lonely, so I went to the gift shop (the Pink Smock) and bought myself some pretty flowers and knick-knacks as a pick-me-up. While I was paying for them, the ladies behind the counter asked me if I needed a card for the flowers. I explained I was buying them for myself because I was alone. After I returned to my room, about an hour later more flowers arrived. I thought my mom had sent them to me from afar. The card read: “Feel Better Soon! From the Ladies at the Pink Smock.” -RACHEL IN SANFORD, N.C. DEAR RACHEL: Your letter is an example of what strong medicine an act of kindness can be. I don’t know which hospital the Pink Smock is in, but whoever runs it should know what an asset those caring women in the gift shop are. Kudos to them, and I hope you are doing much better now. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take care of your responsibilities. Don’t trust others to put as much effort into something as you do.

The guidelines are based on stakeholder input and designed to be consistent with the updated Gopher Tortoise Management Plan approved in September 2012. Updated permitting guidelines provide adequate financial planning for the long-term management of gopher tortoise recipient sites, stipulations for the capture of tortoises for relocation when using a backhoe, and criteria to define when to suspend, revoke or not renew an authorized gopher tortoise agent permit. This action comes during the time of year when gopher tortoises begin their springtime maneuvers through Florida’s open canopy forests and sandy areas. Tortoises are on the move in search of fresh greenery to eat after emerging from winter dormancy in their deep burrows. “Ever since the 2007 approval of the original Gopher Tortoise Management Plan, the FWC has worked closely with stakeholders to improve and revise both the gopher tortoise permitting guide-lines and the management plan,” said Deborah Burr, the FWC’s gopher tortoise management plan coordinator. “Conservation of gopher tortoises and their burrows that shelter other species is our long-term goal, so they always will be part of Florida’s landscape.” Gopher tortoises live in all of Florida’s 67 counties, preferring high, dry, sandy places such as longleaf pine forests, oak sandhills, pine flatwoods and coastal flatlands and dunes. Their burrows can be recognized by the half-moon shape of the entrance, which curves at the top. The gopher tortoise is listed as a state threatened species, and it is against the law to harm gopher tortoises, their burrows or eggs. Generally, it is best to leave a gopher tortoise undisturbed, unless you need to move it off a highway. Then it should be placed immediately on the other side of the road and pointed in the same direction that it was traveling. For more on gopher tortoises, go to MyFWC.com /GopherTortoise. By JESSICA THERRIAULTJessica.Therriault@MyFWC.com E ver wonder what digs those cone-shaped indentations in sandy areas of your yard? It is an insect called an ant lion. The ant lion is neither an ant nor a lion. It is a harmless (to people) insect that looks more like a sci-fi movie monster than a real-life backyard critter. It has an appetite to match its ferocious appearance, and its name has everything to do with its favorite meal: ants! There are approximately 2,000 species of ant lions found throughout the world, mostly in warm climates. Florida has 22 species found throughout the state. Also called a doodlebug when in its immature or larval stage, the ant lion is unique not only because of how it looks and what it eats but also how it catches its prey. As its nickname suggests, this bug doodles, or makes squiggly lines, while moving backwards in the sand. Using its jaws to flick away sand, it digs out a cone-shaped pit to trap its prey: ants and other small arthropods that wander too close. It is almost impossible for an ant to climb on the pit’s slope of loose sand, or to escape before falling to the bottom of the pit to become the ant lion’s next meal. Sand pits are about the size of a silver dollar (some smaller, some larger, depending on the size of the maker) and an inch or more deep. To view ant lion behavior, search for sandy soil in your yard and keep your peepers open for small, cone-shaped indentations in the soil. You may find several in one spot. Favorite pit sites are places protected from the rain, such as beneath a raised building, overhanging eaves or other sheltering object. If you can carefully catch an ant, preferably not a fire ant (we don’t want you to get hurt), drop it into the pit and the ant lion should react quickly. The ant lion waits for its prey under the soil at the bottom of the pit. If you wish to view one of these insects even closer, scoop it out of the pit with a spoon. Start at one side, scooping under the cone and lift the entire pit in one scoop. Gently dump the pile of sand onto a white sheet of paper and push the sand until you spot the ant lion. It is camouflaged and hard to see. It took me three pits to find one. If you see it and it appears motionless, just wait; it should soon flip over and try to rebury itself in the sand. Up close, the young ant lion is brownish or grayish in color with a plump body, short legs and a large head dominated by spiny jaws called mandibles that stick out. These jaws have tiny, needle-like teeth that inject their soon-to-be meal with venom. They are usually harmless to touch and rarely bite. If you do find one, it is best not to handle it, and never pick it up with your fingers because its body is super soft and you could hurt it. Simply watch it for a while and then place it gently back on the sand where you found it. Being an ant bully is only a part of the ant lion’s life cycle. This monster-looking insect transforms into a handsome, winged insect similar to a dragonfly and spends its adult life flying in forested areas, usually in summer months and at night.

LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 26 & 27, 2013 7B7BSports Matt Kenseth’s dominating win at Kansas Speedway on Sunday, coupled with his victory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last month, make it clear why Kenseth’s former car owner, Jack Roush, expressed regret when he let him get away to rival Joe Gibbs Racing. “If I had been as vigilant and diligent and interested in that side of the business as I am on nding why a fuel pump broke or why a connection rod bearing failed or how we could get the next pound of downforce — if I had been taking care of the business side of the business as hard as I tried to take care of the technical side, I might have been able to stop that,” Roush said last summer. But after Kenseth scored his 26th career Cup victory on Sunday by leading 163 of 267 laps at Kansas after starting from the pole, he said that Gibbs’ team is the place he feels most comfortable, and that making the move wasn’t as difcult as one might imagine. And that’s consider-ing the fact that before joining Gibbs, he’d spent his entire career, save one race, in Roush’s No. 17 Ford. Kenseth said the decision to change teams was his alone, with the support of his wife. “I didn’t talk to anybody about it except for Katie,” he said. “She would never tell me what to do, necessarily pick for my profession. She would let me do that. But certainly she had a positive feeling about it, as well. “I didn’t really tell anybody else about it. I really didn’t need to. It wasn’t really a hard decision, believe it or not.” He said that one of the things that lured him to Gibbs was the chance to work with two highly talented Gibbs drivers — Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin. He said he liked the idea of work-ing with drivers who were different from him and different from each other. “I think we all have different personali-ties, we all have a different approach to things, we all have a different way we handle things,” he said. “It’s all different. And I think that’s good.” He said that if everyone wants and likes the same things, it’s difcult for the group to improve their overall perfor-mance. “There are no different viewpoints to consider and to think about and to look at or a different setup or idea or a different approach to driving the race track,” he said. “That was really interesting, and I think we’ve been doing a good job of working together and talking about things. “I think it’s really helped me become a better driver, really elevates your game when you have guys like that that can go out and win any week.” Kenseth also said that his early season success isn’t surprising. “I think as an organization, one of our cars — if all the stars would have aligned — could have won every race this year, if everything would have worked out,” he said. “The only place I feel like we really kind of somewhat missed it was California, and [Busch] won there. “Other than that, we’ve had cars that have been capable of running in the top three or four every week.” Despite his wins, Kenseth is eighth in the standings, 59 points behind leader Jimmie Johnson, who nished third at Kansas. Kenseth’s crew chief Jason Ratcliff expressed condence that his team can close the gap. “We’re running well, and yes, we’re winning races and doing the things we need to do, but I feel like we have a lot of room to grow as far as our race car,” he said. “I feel like there’s still a lot of speed to nd to be a con-tender in the Chase. “We’re looking forward to it, but we still have a lot of work ahead of us.” Kenseth’s win at Kansas from the pole marked the third straight Cup race that the top qualier went on to win. That hasn’t happened since 1985, when Bill Elliott did it at Michigan and Darlington, with Dale Earnhardt getting both pole and win at Bristol in between.Among the newest five nominees for the NASCAR Hall of Fame is the first grassroots racer ever to make the list. The late Larry Phillips, of Springfield, Mo., joins a group of just 45 people to be nominated to the Hall since it was cre ated five years ago. Phillips ran just once in a major NASCAR touring se ries. In 1976, he ran a Winston West car in a combined event with the series now known as Sprint Cup at Ontario (Calif.) Speedway. H e started 24th and finished 13th overall, but was the highest finisher of the Winston West cars, and therefore was credited with a class win. Winning races was something Phillips did on a regular basis for nearly all of his 41-year career, which ended with the first race of the 2001 sea-son, when cancer had sapped his energy to the point that he was no longer able to devote the effort he needed to keep winning. He died in 2004 at the age of 62. He’s the only driver to have won five NASCAR Weekly Racing Series national championships, and he was a mentor to many of the stars of the Sprint Cup Series, including Rusty Wallace and Mark Martin, both of whom worked in Phillips’ shop as youngsters. James Ince, who went on to become a winning Sprint Cup crew chief, was as close to Phillips as anyone. “I was around Larry for at least 20-something years ,” Ince said. “He was a big part of my life for a long time. He w as my mentor. He taught me how to race and taught me a lot about lif e on top of that. I considered him a second father.” Ince said that while Phillips may not be as well-kn own nationally as some racers, in his world he was the king. “In the Midwest, Larry was our Richard Petty,” he s aid. “He was the guy that everybody looked up to, and there was no doubt about it. He was the guy that won every week.” Ince said Phillips took his racing as seriously bac k in the day as those who race in NASCAR’s highest levels today. “To him, racing was a business,” he said. “He wante d to be the best at what he did, and what he did was race.” Phillips, like most of the best short-track racers, never kept track of his win total. When Inces first got on Phillips’ payroll, one of his first tasks was to help with a move to a new shop. Part of that involved clean-ing out a 53-foot trailer packed with trophies Phillips had won over the years. “I took them to a landfill and threw them away,” Ince said. “I’d say he won at least 1,500 races in his career. But he didn’t keep up with that stuff.” Even after Ince was running race teams in Charlotte, he’d still try to slip away and spend time with Phillips back in Missouri. For him, it really was just like old times. “Down South you’d have 100 people working with you and big sponsors behind you, and it would be just like always when I walked in Larry’s shop,” he said. “I’d be scared to death tha t I was going to mess something up. I would be nervou s.” Ince said that he believes Phillips one day will be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame, where only five of 25 nominees are chosen each year. “Nobody is any more deserving, and there’s no doubt that he’ll eventually get in,” he said. “He got weekly short-t rack racing noticed for everybody ... I don’t know how you could not vo te him in.”Texas penalties still a hot topicThe penalties imposed on the Penske Racing teams of Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano at Texas Motor Speedway were still the hot topic when the Sprint Cup circuit moved on to Kansas Speedway last week. Keselowski told reporters that as far as he knew, the rear-end parts in question were approved ahead of time by NASCAR. “As far as I know, yes,” he said, adding that his team and NASCAR are in an “agree to disagree” position about the parts. Keselowski and Logano were docked 25 points apiece, their crew chiefs were fined $100,000 each and the crew chiefs, car chiefs, engineers and team managers from the two teams were suspended for six weeks. But everyone remains on the job while the appeals process is ongoing. Jimmie Johnson also responded to reports that his team turned in the Penske teams to NASCAR officials, who confiscated the parts in question just before the race at Texas. “When you have success on your side the magnifying glass ... gets a lot more intense,” Johnson said. “The best officiating in the garage area has always been your neighbor. That has just been part of NASCAR for years and years. “With all that being said, no, the Hendrick group and the No. 48 team did not rat out the Penske cars.” At Kansas, Logano was involved in a violent crash with Kyle Busch and finished 39th, drop-ping him six spots in the standings, to 20th. Keselowski overcame a wreck at the start of the race to finish sixth and move up one posi-tion in the standings, to third, 38 points out of first place and just one point behind Kasey Kahne, who finished second at Kansas.Hot streak goes cold for BuschKyle Busch rode a hot streak into Kansas Speedway, but his successes elsewhere — two wins and three other top-five finishes in the previ ous five Cup races — didn’t help him at one of his worst tracks. He spun twice in the early going, with the second spin leading to a crash with Joey Logano that had him wearing street clothes before the race reached the halfway point. “Just don’t know what to do with Kansas,” he said. His 38th-place finish dropped him five spots in the standings to seventh, 54 points out of the lead .ThorSport dominates Truck SeriesThorSport Racing is on top of the Camping World Truck Series after the first four races of 2013. The team has three wins, two by Johnny Sauter, at Daytona and Martinsville, and one by Matt Crafton last weekend at Kansas Speedway. Sauter is the series points leader, and Crafton is in second place. And they drive for a team not headquartered near Charlotte, N.C., like most NASCAR teams, who like to be close to the people, parts and technology available there. “I have to thank [team owners] Duke and Rhonda Thorson, doing it out of Sandusky, Ohio,” Crafton said. “Everybody said it can’t be done, and we are making fools out of all the ones that said it can’t be done.” Crafton led 34 of 167 laps at Kansas to get his third career victory and his first driving a Toyota Tundra. Sauter finished fifth and has yet to finish outside the top five this year. NUMERICALLY SPEAKINGDrivers in the top 10 in Sprint Cup points who gained or lost spots in the standings at Kansas Speedway. Only leader Jimmie Johnson maintained his points position. Laps led by Denny Hamlin, who hopes to return to the seat of his No. 11 Toyota this week, in the past 16 Sprint Cup races at Richmond International Raceway, topping all drivers. (And he’s only run 14 of them.) Laps led by defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski in seven career starts at Richmond International Raceway. Sprint Cup victories at Richmond by Kyle Busch, tops among all active drivers.
