Rick Scott has determined that the pay and benefits of state college presi-dents varies widely with little explanation as to why some presidents earn large six-figure salaries. This same review shows many presi-dents have contracts with provisions that appear to violate law or in some instances, the contracts automatically renew each year without approval by local col-lege boards. Randy Hanna, chancellor of the Florida College System, said the critical review is prompting college boards across the state to alter and amend the contracts now offered to presidents. Sharon Best, executive director of human resources at Florida Gateway College, said there were no surprises in the report for the college. Everything was as expected, she said. Charles Halls, FGC president, has a doctorate in higher education and administration from Arizona State University. Hes been at FGC for 16 years. His total compensation package is $287,414 per year. Among 28 state college presidents, Hall was the eighth lowest paid. Halls contract is a rolling contract, meaning it renews automatically without the need for a vote by the colleges board Victim hospitalized in critical condition; few details released. At $287,414, FGCs Charles Hall is 8th lowest paid in state.

FORT MYERS The cause of an early Sunday fire that burned at least four school buses in a Lee County lot was under investigation, authorities said. Fire crews responded to the scene at the East Transportation Center around 4 a.m. No injuries were reported. The Fort Myers Shores Fire Department said at least four buses were burned in a depot where the Lee County School District parks dozens of buses. Several other buses were checked for damage. Robert Morgan, executive director of transporta-tion for the district, told the Fort Myers News Press that bus routes and schedules would be adjusted to offset the loss of vehicles. There will not be a disruption, Morgan said.1 killed, 3 hurt in ATV crash WINTER HAVEN Polk County authorities are investigating a crash between an ATV and a bicycle that killed one per-son and critically injured three others. A sheriffs office statement says a witness called to report late Saturday that a black all-terrain-vehicle was speeding without its lights on when it swerved to avoid hitting a bicycle. The ATV landed upside down in a ditch and the bicycle was found mangled nearby. Its not immediately known who was on the ATV and who was riding the bicycle. The fatality was identified Sunday as 18-year-old Israel Bible Jr. Injured were 19-year-old Danny Bermea Jr., 21year-old Ginno Cano and 21-year-old Jose Luis Cano-Mendez. None appeared to have been wearing helmets. Authorities say speed and impairment may have been a factor in the crash.Newspaper carrier shoots attacker WINTER HAVEN A man delivering newspa-pers in central Florida shot and wounded a suspected attacker, Winter Haven police reported. Tiffany Simo and Douglas Romeo were delivering copies of the Ledger around 3 a.m. Sunday when they noticed a car following them. When the carriers stopped their truck a short time later, the cars driver, 23-year-old by Brian Scott Dickey II, approached their truck and fired four shots from a handgun, police reported. When Dickey began banging on the window with his gun and demanding they open their door, Romeo pulled his concealed firearm and fired through the window three times. Dickey fled the scene, but rescuers were soon called to his home nearby. He had three gunshot wounds. He was taken to a Lakeland hospital, where he was recovering. Residents at Dickeys home said the man had consumed a large amount of alcohol earlier in the evening and had been arguing with his brother. When the brother left, Dickey grabbed his hand-gun and drove off after his brother. He apparently thought the newspaper carriers truck was his brothers truck. This guy got much more than he bargained for, Chief Gary Hester said in a news release. These victims feared for their lives and did exactly what they needed to do. This could have turned out so much worse than it did. When hes released from the hospital, Dickey will be booked into jail on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm in public, police reported. Man charged with abuse of son, 12 MIAMI BEACH A Miami Beach man is fac-ing aggravated child abuse charges after police say he tied his 12-year-old son to a pole and left him there while he went shopping for several hours. Authorities said Monday that 49-year-old Adolfo Guzman used wire bicycle locks to tie the boy to a concrete laundry pole in a common area of their apartment building. Fire rescue personnel cut the locks after passers-by noticed the boy and called police. The Miami Herald reports that Guzman told police his son had wan-dered off without permis-sion previously and that the boy had been warned he would be tied up if it happened again. Police said the boy was not injured.Mothers Day diners disrupted BRANDON More than 200 patrons were forced to leave the Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant in the middle of their Mothers Day meals when a fire broke out.

Daily Scripture Charm is deceptive, and beau-ty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30 Walters announces retirement plansNEW YORK B arbara Walters said Monday that retirement from her epochal televi-sion career is near, but its not happening right away. Walters, who began in television news as a Today girl in 1961, became the mediums best-known interviewer and invented a daytime talk show at an age many people would be going fishing, said on The View that she will step away from the camera next summer. Before that, her retirement tour will include TV specials looking back at her work. The announcement brought the 83-year-old Walters to tears. While not necessarily a surprise reports about the plan leaked out about a month ago and it was confirmed by ABC on Sunday night the discus-sion was alternately saucy and emo-tional. In the summer of 2014 I plan to retire from appearing on television at all, Walters said. She preceded her announcement with a taped piece outlining career highlights, from her appearance in a Playboy bunny outfit on Today to her interview with Syrian President Bashar Assad last year. She men-tioned her pride in rising to Today co-host and becoming the first woman on a network evening news program, co-anchoring with Harry Reasoner on ABC. Her interviews became her calling card, sitting across from actors and presidents. Her prime-time talk with Monica Lewinsky set a ratings standard.Franklin pulls out of shows due to illness NEW YORK Aretha Franklin has canceled appearances in Chicago and Connecticut later this month under a doctors recommendation. A Monday news release says Franklin will need treatment during the time period shows were sched-uled with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on May 20 and at Foxwoods Resort & Casino in Connecticut on May 26. The release doesnt specify what kind of treatment and her publicist did not immediately respond to a message seeking details. Singer Janelle Monae will step in for Franklin for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Corporate Night fundraiser. The Grammy-win-ning singer will be playing orchestral versions of her songs that shell first debut Thursday with the San Francisco Symphony. Savannah Guthrie announces engagement NEW YORK Bradley Cooper presented her with a dozen roses on the air but, oddly enough, that isnt why Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie is so happy. Guthrie reported Monday that her boyfriend, Mike Feldman, had pro-posed during a tropi-cal vacation, and she said yes. Guthrie and Feldman, a consultant at a strategic communications firm in Washington, have been dating for four years. It would be the second marriage for Guthrie, who is 41, and Feldmans first. Hes 44.

By TONY BRITT email@example.com A standing-room-only crowd filled the Richardson Middle School Auditorium Monday night as they watched more than 400 ele mentary and middle school students get recognition for academic achievements during the 2012-13 school year. The Saluting Academic Dignitaries awards program was held to honor students who had no grades less than an A or B during the school year. The pro gram was sponsored by the Richardson Middle School EXCEL Science Club and Presley EXCEL Scholars program. Kersha Andre, Garet Dicks and Eva Kirby were B.D. Presley Special Award recipients for maintaining an A average throughout the school year while par ticipating in extracurricu lar activities. The three stu dents parents presented their awards. School Board mem ber Linard Johnson said its important to have an awards ceremony for aca demic achievement, just as athletic achievements are honored. Often times, we have athletic events to recog nize our athletes, but Mrs. Presley has taken the time to recognize our academic scholars, he said. Our school district is about achievement, both in the academic and athletic arena, but its especially to see the number of parents come out this evening for the number of children who were recognized for academic achievements. Johnson said more stu dents were recognized for academic achievement than he has ever seen dur ing an athletic event. Fort White Elementary had the largest contingent of people at the event as at least 200 of the schools students were recognized during the program. The keynote speaker for the event was Lake City Police Department Chief Argatha Gilmore who called the academic dignitaries, stand out students and she told them the impor tance of having a vision. Avona Randolph, a fifth grade Westside Elementary School student, introduced the keynote speaker and said she was proud to get her academic award with her classmates. Her mother, Athena Randolph, said she was proud of her daughters accomplishments. It takes a lot of courage to get up in front of all these people, she said. She did a great job introducing our speaker for this evening and Im especially proud of all of her accomplishments that shes gotten so far up to the fifth grade. Bernice Presley, spon sor of the Presley EXCEL Scholars program, said the goal of the awards pro gram was to make students feel special and appreciated for the hard work theyve done. I think the more we let these students know that we appreciate them, the more we can get scholars such as scientists, math ematicians, inventors, governors, etc., she said. When you let a child know that you appreciate even the little things that they do, then they will always reach for higher heights. We trying to encourage the students to dream big dreams.

Beginning in January, a new computer-based version of the high school equivalency test will replace the pencil-and-paper test currently available. While Florida Gateway College already offers computer testing, the county school district has not yet made the switch. However, the Career and Adult Education Center will be provid ing computer-based GED testing as early as August, but no later than October, to give the district the chance to prepare for the new test, as well as increase the amount of students tested before 2014. We are having to move into the computer-based realm, said Mary Keen, career and adult edu cation coordinator. It has a poten tial to benefit the students, but it is important that as were teach ing our students, were imparting technology skills as well. Keen encourages students who have started the GED process but have not taken the entire test to finish before the year ends. When the new test is implement ed, current scores will not be transferable, and the student will have to retake the entire test. The new test is expected to be tougher and more expensive, she said. Currently, it costs $50 for students to take the GED, and $70 for nonstudents. While the price for the new test has not yet been set, Keen believes it will be twice as much. She fears the new price may prevent students from acquiring a GED, but said they can take the test in parts to cut down on cost. The current test launched in 2002 but hasnt been changed since. The test covered five areas: reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies. The new test has four sections, as the reading and writing assessment will be combined into Reasoning Through the Language Arts. Students are not required to take it all at once. The school district will be using the computers in the Career and Adult Education computer lab, but will only be able to test 10 students at a time compared to the 26 when using the paper version of the test. Because of the drop, Keen said, the district will have to offer GED testing more than once a month, as well as partner with Florida Gateway College to ensure everyone who wants to be tested can be. Keen said students tend to be more successful when using the computer delivery method. After the GED Testing Service intro duced computer-based testing in 2012, analysis revealed the deliv ery method cut failure rate by half and testing time by an hour and a half. The GED is not an endpoint for our students, Keen said. There is an expectation that they move on to post-secondary education. Keen plans to be at the meet ing tonight to answer any ques tions about the contract with Pearson VUE. The school board meeting will also cover the firing of Mary Loughran, director of finance for the Columbia County School dis trict. Superintendent of Schools Terry Huddleston placed Loughran on administrative leave after finance documents showed that the district will have less in the fund balance than previously expected. Huddleston said in an interview on Wednesday that he wanted someone stronger to fill the position. Also on the agenda for approv al are: An invoice in the amount of $10,645 from Florida Association of District School Superintendents for 2013-14 membership dues. Agreements with Hamilton and Suwannee county school districts to provide Title I ser vices to address-eligible students who live in Hamilton County and attend private school in Columbia County. A donation of $500 from Allstate McKnight Insurance Agency to Niblack Elementary School forstudents A+ Incentive Trip to Atlanta, Ga. An agreement with Columbia County Department of Health for 2013-14 in the amount of $61,608. An agreement with Lake City Recreation Department for the use of three school buses for the citys summer recreation pro grams. Allowing the Girl Scouts of America to hold a two-day pro gram at Lake City Middle School and Richardson Middle School to teach the Passages to Middle School to incoming sixth-grade girls. Increasing pay for lifeguards at the Aquatic Complex from $7.67 to $7.79 to coincide with the increase in the state minimum wage rate. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the district office. By DEREK GILLIAM email@example.com Lake City police arrested a man they believe sexually assaulted a local woman in November. Christopher M. Foley, 38, faces charges of sexual assault, burglary and larceny. On Nov. 11, a woman was assaulted about 5 a.m. at a Lake City house she had moved into on Nov. 8, according While walking down her hallway to investigate noises, she saw a man dressed in black clothes and a ski mask climbing through a window. The woman ran down the hall, but then fell down, the report said. Do you want to live or do you want to die, her attacker said when he caught up to her, the report said. The attacker then straddled her while she was face down, and demanded to know where her money was, the report said. She told him it was in her purse. The man asked how much money, and she told him about $500. The man then pulled down her pants. Relax, this is not my first time doing this, he reportedly told her. The man then started to undo his belt buckle, but the woman distracted him by tell him the money was in the billfold inside her purse, the report said. The woman told police that she used this tactic multiple times to distract him from molesting her, the report said. After he took the money from the billfold, he sexually assaulted her for about five minutes, the report said. Police collected DNA evidence on an item they believe was used during the incident, and a match was made from a police database on the DNA on May 1. The man the DNA matched, Foley, was on work release at the Lake City Work Release Center, the report said. Inmates in a work release program are given the opportunity to leave the center, the report said. Police detained Foley at his work release job in White Springs on May 1. He was taken back to the work release center, where he asked for an attorney to be present while being questioned, the report said. Police took Foley to the Columbia County Detention Center, where he was held 10 days. On May 6, Lake City police were successful in obtaining an arrest war rant, and on May 7 they were able to obtain a search warrant to col lect DNA from him, the report said. Police took a DNA sample from him and booked him into the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $100,000 bond Friday. Foley served time in state prison multiple times. His first convictions occurred in 1992 when the courts found him guilty of burglary and two counts of grand theft, according to Department of Corrections records. He served less than three months of a two-year prison sentence, DOC records said. In 1996, Foley was convicted on four counts of burglary and one count of fraud. He served a year and 10 days of a two-year, nine-month prison sentence, DOC records show. In October of 1998, Foley was con victed of robbery in Manatee County and sentenced to 15 years.

P ut me down as happy to see former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford coming back to Washington. He handily defeated Elizabeth Colbert Busch in Tuesdays special election for a House seat he himself once held. I hope he brings his piglets with him. Once as governor, Sanford showed up at the statehouse in Columbia with two piglets -one named pork and one named bar-rel -to protest the Legislatures quick move to reject his proposed budget that included large spending cuts. Its this kind of flair that has characterized Sanfords political career, both his six years in Congress and eight as governor. He has always been a consistent, principled and courageous conser-vative. And he has always done it with showmanship and clarity that gets the points across to voters. He displayed this showmanship in this campaign of redemption, in which he was combatting not just his opponent, but also his deeply tarnished image as result of serious ethical transgressions during his second term as governor. The story is well known. While governor, Sanford conducted an adulterous affair, disappeared to visit the woman in Argentina, lied about his whereabouts and misused state funds in making the trip. Sinful stuff.He survived to serve out his second term as governor, but departed as what seemed to be permanently damaged political goods.... Sanford appealed to voters to look past his personal transgressions, about which he has been upfront and apologetic, and to look to his impeccable conservative credentials and his political experience to do battle in Washington.... According to Alixandria Lapp, executive director the House Majority PAC, which poured some $450,000 into ads and mail against Sanford, The House Republican caucus has added yet another ethi-cally challenged embarrassment who will be an albatross around the neck of every Republican forced to answer for Sanfords embarrassing and reckless behavior. The irony ... pours forth like a tsunami when liberals start talking about morality and ethics. A few weeks ago, Washington Wizards basketball player Jason Collins announced that he is gay. This was an event of such apparent import that he received a congratu-latory phone call from the leader of the Democrat Party, President Barack Obama, and an official tweet from first lady Michelle. Both expressed their pride and joy about Collins courageous coming out. The plight of Carolyn Moos, the woman with whom Collins was liv-ing for eight years and to whom he once was engaged, was apparently of no interest to the Obamas ... nor was the deceptive life that Collins lived with her. Moos, 34, expressed distress at eight wasted prime years with Collins. She said that she never had a hint that Collins was gay and liv-ing a double life, and that she actu-ally believed marriage and children were in the cards for them. Perhaps if Sanfords adultery was a gay affair, liberals would be more understanding. When the National Republican Congressional Committee pulled its support from Sanfords race following the news that he tres-passed in the home of his former wife (to watch the Super Bowl with his son), support came in from both FreedomWorks PAC and the National Right to Life PAC. Sanfords persona pulled in two streams of conservatives -the eco-nomic conservatives and the social conservatives -that many see at odds with each other. A seasoned, principled and exciting conservative politician and leader is exactly what Republicans need today. Welcome back to Washington, Mark Sanford.

It is being reprinted in honor, or sympathy, of my brother-in-law and his wife, who just spent beaucoup house payments on their daughter Hannahs wedding. For those parents yet to spring for their daughters per-fect nuptials, I present here the story of a wedding that cost only $42.88, plus tips:M iss Dinky Mae Altarbound, daugh-ter of Mr. and Mrs. A.A. Altarbound of Deep Fork, and Fred Apprehended, son of Mr. and Mrs. F.Q. Apprehended of Hog Haven, were married April 15 at 3:55 p.m. at Last Chance Church. The Rev. Paul Pulpit, Miss Altarbounds brother, officiated in the double-ring ceremony. The church was decorated with chrysanthemums Miss Sally Snorts made from yellow tissue and with multi-colored streamers left over from the Fourth of July celebration in Deep Fork. Church organist Penelope Pipes accompanied Miss Perennial Soloist in a rendition of Yes, Shes Got Him. Little Homer Foot accompa-nied Mrs. Pipes on the organ. He pumped. The bride, gladly given in marriage by her father, wore a long traditional gown of summer cotton. The high neckline gathered around the brides high neck was trimmed with lace from her mothers doilies. The gown had long sleeves with matching doily lace and bumble-bees embroidered at the elbow. Her waist-length mantilla was made from a satin scarf brought to her from Japan by an uncle who served in World War II. Miss Tammy Lou Altarbound, the brides younger sister, was maid of honor, and Miss Joncie Jones was the other attendant. They wore pink dresses of a wash-and-wear mate-rial acquired from their projects in Future Homemakers of America at school. Miss Altarbounds dress was shin length; Miss Jones was a little longer. Their illusion poufs were of fish net furnished courtesy of Burts Bait Shop on Main Street. The grooms twin brother, Ted, was best man. The twins wore the traditional blue suits, brown shoes and white socks. Ushers were the twins cousins, Mort and Fats Scruggs, and Miss Altarbounds great-uncle Pete, who carried the brides train, a linen tablecloth, down the aisle. Ring bearer was 28-year-old Elvis Presley Smith, another cousin of the groom. The brides mother chose a traditional brown sack dress with match-ing pocketbook and accessories. The grooms mother didnt attend the wedding; she was home sick with a bad poison-oak rash. A reception was held on the homecoming table in the woods behind the church. The table was decorated with the train from the brides gown and with greenery from Finklesteins Hot House. The Sober sisters, Sue, Syble and Sabrina, served orange drinks, iced down, and pound cake.

Ward Downtown Lake City (386) 752-5470 Jay Poole, AAMSFinancial Advisor846 S W Baya DriveLake City FL 32025386-752-3545 By STEPHEN OHLEMACHERAssociated PressWASHINGTON Acting Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Steven T. Miller repeat-edly failed to tell Congress that tea party groups were being inappropriately tar-geted, even after he had been briefed on the mat-ter. The IRS said Monday that Miller was first informed on May, 3, 2012, that applications for tax-exempt status by tea party groups were inappropri-ately singled out for extra, sometimes burdensome scrutiny. At least twice after the briefing, Miller wrote letters to members of Congress to explain the process of reviewing appli-cations for tax-exempt sta-tus without revealing that tea party groups had been targeted. On July 25, 2012, Miller testified before the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee but again was not forth-coming on the issue despite being asked about it. At the hearing, Rep. Kenny Marchant, R-Texas, told Miller that some polit-ically active tax-exempt groups in his district had complained about being harassed. Marchant did not explicitly ask if tea party groups were being targeted. But he did ask how applications were handled. Miller responded, We did group those organiza-tions together to ensure consistency, to ensure quality. We continue to work those cases, accord-ing to a transcript on the committees website. He added, It is my hope that some of the noise that we heard earlier this year has abated as we continue to work through these cases. Earlier, Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., had raised concerns with the IRS about complaints that tea party groups were being harassed. Boustany specif-ically mentioned tea party groups in his inquiry. But in a June 15, 2012, letter to Boustany, Miller gave a generic response. He said that when the IRS saw an increase in appli-cations from groups that were involved in political activity, the agency took steps to coordinate the handling of the case to ensure consistency. He added that agents worked with tax law experts to develop approaches and materials that could be helpful to the agents working the cases. Miller did not mention that in 2011, those materi-als included a list of words to watch for, such as tea party and patriot. He also didnt disclose that in January 2012, the criteria for additional screening was updated to include references to the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. They repeatedly failed to disclose and be truth-ful about what they were doing, said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. Camps committee is holding a hearing on the issue Friday and Miller is scheduled to testify. We are going to need to find out how much he knew, Camp said of Miller.Top IRS official didnt reveal tea party targeting PAY: College presidents salaries inconsistent Continued From Page 1Aof trustees. However, the inspector general had recommended the college switch from a rolling contract to an annual contract. An annual contract would need to be approved by the board and signed by Hall every year. The report said rolling contracts have the poten-tial to allow colleges not to amend their contracts in a timely manner to comport with changes to statutes. Thomas Riherd II, chairman of the FGC board of trustees, wrote in a letter addressed to the inspec-tor general that the board will work with its lawyers to have an annual contract for Hall by the start of the 2014-15 school year. Riherd assured the inspector general the col-leges legal council would look at Halls contract and make sure it complies with state law. Also, Riherd wrote that the board will set specific performance goals and expectations that will tie into his evaluation. The letter says the FGC board of trustees will plan a study session to analyze the recommendations from the inspector general. Scott last year ordered his chief inspector general to review the salaries and benefits offered to the 28 presidents in the state col-lege system after trustees at a Jacksonville college agreed to a $1.2 million severance package with the outgoing president. The probe did not cover the salaries and benefits paid to presidents at the states 12 public univer-sities which include schools such as University of Florida or Florida State University. The final report released Monday showed that pres-idents in the state college system are receiving near-ly $10 million in salaries and benefits during the current fiscal year. Some of the salaries range from nearly $144,000 to more than $630,000 to the president at Miami-Dade College. State law limits college president salaries to $225,000 if the money comes directly from state taxpayers. But colleges are allowed to augment the sal-ary with money from other sources. Chief Inspector General Melinda Miguel noted that in some instances the total amount of pay and ben-efits offered to presidents was not readily transpar-ent or that some con-tracts offered benefits for life which means the total owed by taxpayers is dif-ficult to calculate. Some college presidents get car allowances, or hous-ing allowances or medical insurance premiums. One former president at a col-lege in Bradenton received nearly $21,000 in insurance premiums. Miguels probe also noted that most colleges had contracts that appear to violate state laws designed to restrict severance pack-ages paid to presidents who either resign volun-tarily or are forced to leave their job. Many of these contracts included provi-sions that would allow a president to receive a pay-out above what is allowed in law. Only eight colleges tied contracts to performance goals.

BRAINS: Summers Elementary team takes title Continued From Page 1Atrophy, all the students were winners, said Kitty McElhaney, director of curriculum, assessment and accountability for the county School District. Team members compete within their schools for the right to represent the school at the Battle of the Brains. The schools competing were Columbia City Elementary, Eastside Elementary, Epiphany Catholic School, Five Points Elementary, Fort White Elementary, Melrose Park Elementary, Niblack Elementary, Pinemount Elementary, Summers Elementary and Westside Elementary. The competition consisted of 10 rounds, which were comprised of seven minutes or 24 questions whichever came first. For most of the rounds, the questions were answered before time ran out. According to school dis-trict officials, the children answered more questions this year than in the past. The students from Summers felt the questions alternated between tough and easy. Calvin said he even knew some of the questions from practice. To prepare for the compe-tition, the students prac-ticed three days a week since March. Next year, Harrington intends to start the practice earlier in the year. The school even held a mock battle in the cafeteria to prepare the participants for being on stage, hearing the buzzer and looking into an audience full of watchful eyes. Finishing positions for the other teams were not announced. Epiphany Catholic School team members said they are walking away winners regardless of where they finished. They enjoyed the competition and loved get-ting their pictures taken. The trophies were a bonus too. Well, said Kylie Parrish, now I know some more stuff. Like Summers, the group felt the questions were both easy and hard, but the sec-ond round seemed more difficult. They accomplished so much in just a short period of time, said their coach, Mark Wilson. They knew the contest was hard, but they maintained a good attitude... I dont believe in pressure. Just have fun. All the parents seemed proud of their children. Claude Ste-Marie, grandfa-ther of Mikah Gustavson, said his grandson is good at everything he does. Hes a baseball player and a well-rounded student. Gyros parents said their son com-peted in the math bee the year before, but came in second place. Gyro swore he would make it to the Battle of the Brains and do great. He did, and he said hes so happy. Im very proud of all of them, said Calvins moth-er, Stephanie Hencin. It was a team effort, and I think they all did beauti-fully. They made Summers proud. Summers principal Terri Metrick, wearing the bright yellow of the team, said she was proud of the students and of the coach, Harrington. It was Harringtons first year going to Battle of the Brains, and she had no idea what to expect. She talk-ed to friends at Eastside Elementary for tips on the competition. Her co-coach, Kristina Murphy, is a first year teacher at Summers. Just the fact that two newbies could come and lead a team having never competed in Battle of the Brains to win, Harrington said. We could never have done it without confidence and great lead-ership. Summers is a force to be reckoned with.

Obama tries to swat down 2 controversiesBy JULIE PACEWhite House CorrespondentWASHINGTON President Barack Obama tried to swat down a pair of brewing controversies Monday, denouncing as outra-geous the targeting of conserva-tive political groups by the fed-eral IRS but angrily denying any administration cover-up after last years deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya. Simultaneous investigations and demands by Republicans for more have put the White House on the defensive, embold-ened GOP lawmakers and threat-ened to overtake a second-term Obama agenda already off to a rocky start. During a joint news conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron, the normally even-keeled Obama appeared agitated over the resurgent investigation into the September attack at a U.S. diplomatic com-pound in Benghazi. He dismissed the Republican-driven effort as a sideshow that dishonors the four Americans who were killed, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Theres no there there, Obama declared in his first public comments since GOP lawmakers launched new hearings on the matter. The fact that this keeps on getting churned up, frankly, has a whole lot to do with political motivations. Seeking to keep another controversy from spinning out of control, the president rebuked the IRS for scrutinizing the tax-exempt status of groups with conservative titles such as Tea Party or Patriot in their names. Those responsible, Obama said, must be held fully accountable. Ive got no patience with it, he added. I will not tolerate it and we will find out exactly what happened. The president said he first learned of the matter Friday when it was reported by news organi-zations. Spokesman Jay Carney said later that the White House counsels office was alerted on April 22 that the IRS inspector general was completing a review of an IRS office in Cincinnati. Neither issue appears to be going away any time soon. On Monday, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, asked authors of an independent government review into the Benghazi attack to meet privately with commit-tee investigators. And the House Ways and Means Committee said it plans to hold a hearing on the IRS matter on Friday. The two controversies are the latest in a series of unex-pected challenges that have con-sumed the White House since Obama began his second term in January. Among the others: the Boston Marathon bombings, Syrias alleged use of chemical weapons and fresh nuclear provo-cations from North Korea. Its hardly the start Obamas team envisioned after he solidly won re-election in November. The White House had hoped to achieve an early victory on immi-gration overhaul, make another run at a sweeping deficit reduc-tion deal, and perhaps take a stab at tackling climate change. But those plans were upended even before Obamas inaugura-tion, when the horrific December massacre of 20 school children and six adults in Newtown, Conn., thrust gun control to the fore-front of Obamas domestic agen-da. That legislative effort failed on Capitol Hill last month, leav-ing Obama with a political defeat and giving critics of immigration reform more time to organize their opposition. Obama still has an opportunity to reverse course and claim a big second-term victory if immigra-tion changes can be approved. Draft legislation being debated in the Senate has bipartisan support, and Republicans have a political incentive to back an overhaul given the growing political power of Hispanic voters, who voted overwhelmingly Democratic in 2012. For the White House, the challenge will be to keep Capitol Hill focused on immigration and other legislative priorities, not a persis-tent cycle of investigations. The American people want Washington to focus on the issues that matter most to them, Carney said Monday. The imper-ative for getting things done still exists. However, Republicans made clear that they plan to keep pressing the president on both Benghazi and the IRS. The administration continues to lose credibility by fail-ing to answer even the simplest questions, refusing to take full responsibility and failing to pro-duce a plan to move forward, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus told The Associated Press. Tea party targeting, Benghazi attack put him on defensive.

CHS softball claims state championship By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com It was a lifetime in the making that finally came to fruition on Sunday morning as the Columbia High soft ball team claimed the first state championship in the programs history. Columbia High defeated Pembroke Pines Charter, 6-2, in a game that took two days to finish and the Lady Tigers were crowned the Class 6A State Champions. The game resumed at 9:30 on Sunday morning with the Lady Tigers lead ing 3-0 after a weather delay forced the game to be post poned on Saturday. Columbia picked back up where it left off including a pitching performance that ended in a no-hitter from Erin Anderson to help the Lady Tigers earn the state title. Anderson was dominant in 6 2/3 innings with six strikeouts and three walks to earn the win. If you can throw a nohitter in a championship game, youre not going to lose, Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams said after the game. Shes been a biggame pitcher for us and has won a lot of games for us, but she saved her best for last. I hope she will win a lot more for us in the future. Columbia (28-4) was also impressive with the bats in roughing up Pembroke Pines Claire Blount to the tune of eight hits led by Kayli Kvistad, who reached base in each of her four trips to the plate. Kvistad ended the game with two hits including a double and walked twice. Tatum Morgan and Lacey CHS continued on 4B

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TUESDAY, MAY 14, 2013 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-04204BSPORTS CHS: Lady Tigers win state title Continued From Page 1BNo-hit championshipI t was a Tuesday afternoon prior to the season when Columbia High softball coach Jimny Williams first told me he thought this years team is the best he had ever coached. Id be lying if I said I wasnt skeptical at first. How could a team that lost five seniors from the winningest class in the schools history possibly be better? Well, coach Williams, Ill never question you again, because a state championship proves you knew exactly what you were talking about. And as Williams would say, what a super special season it was. There were so many moments along the way that stand out. Hollianne Dohrns eight-RBI performance was phenomenal. Then watching the three seniors (Keeley Murray, Jessica Shimmel and Holly Boris) shine on senior night was special, especially watching Boris return for the first time all season from injury. It seemed like every other night a Morgan was making a big play whether it was Brandy, Brittney or Tatum. Lauren Eakers walk off homer against St. Augustine in the district semifinals was just another in a long list of moments. And the Lady Tigers showed a never quit attitude as a team to get revenge against Atlantic Coast High for a district title, but that was just the beginning of more big moments to come. From Ashley Shoups pitching performance against Mosley High in the regional final to Erin Andersons no-hitter in the state championship, the Lady Tigers always had a stud on the mound. The Lady Tigers had speed in a small package with Lacey King and was there any player that improved more this year than Caleigh McCauley? Her impact was certainly felt in the Final Four against Lakewood Ranch. And where would the team be without Kayli Kvistad? Not only was she one of the best players on the team, but she might be the best player in the state. But good players alone cant win a championship. There has to be that special mix of players, coaches and chemistry. From Williams and assistant coaches Mitch Shoup and Greg Sund down to the last member on the bench, this team had that. And when they stepped foot on the field for the first time at the Final Four, there was no doubt which team was the best. Everything they had was left on the field and now the Lady Tigers can call themselves champions for the rest of their lives. No matter where they go from here, what they do in life, they will always know for a moment they were the best. And nobody can ever take that away. FROM THE SIDELINE Brandon FinleyPhone: (386) firstname.lastname@example.org Q Brandon Finley covers sports for the Lake City Reporter Something that cant be taken away By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comWinning a championship is special enough, but throwing a no-hitter in a championship game is next to remarkable. Thats exactly what Columbia High pitcher Erin Anderson did against Pembroke Pines in the Class 6A Championship at the Vero Beach Sports Village in Vero Beach this weekend. Anderson pitched three no-hit innings on Saturday, before the game was post-poned until Sunday morn-ing due to weather. In the first three innings Anderson issued two walks and struck out three batters. She was equally impressive on Sunday morning after returning to the field with the Lady Tigers lead-ing 3-0. Anderson struck out four more batters and only walked one more to close out her no-hit performance. In all, Anderson finished the game with 6 2/3 innings pitched, struck out six bat-ters and walked three to earn her 15th win of the season. I cant even think of the words, Anderson said after the game. Its crazy. I felt confident in myself and had my curve working. Immediately after a pop fly was caught by catcher Hollianne Dohrn for the last out, the pitcher ran to embrace her catcher and celebrate the win. We talked about it and once it was over we just ran and hugged each other, Anderson said. Once she caught it, I was like, yeah, and just ran. Dohrn knew when the final ball was in the air that there she was going to catch the final out and pre-serve Andersons accom-plishment. There was no way I wasnt getting that ball, Dohrn said. Kayli (Kvistad) said that I ran into her and knocked her over, but I had to get that ball. Dohrn caught the entire Final Four with a broken bone in her catchers hand and will see the doctor this week about the injury. The junior wasnt about to miss Columbias chance to win the championship. I was trying to keep my mind off of it, because that was the best thing to do, Dohrn said. I wasnt going to let it bother me. And the connection between the two might have been the difference against Pembroke Pines, but Anderson realized this moment was obtainable over a month ago. It was just about accomplishing the dream. When we got to the district championship against Atlantic Coast and were able to beat them, I start-ed to realize that we could do this, she said. They were a tough team and beat us last year. I knew if we could beat them, wed have a chance. And with Anderson pitching a no-hitter, Pembroke Pines had no chance.

BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterColumbia High senior Holly Boris connects with a pitch against Pembroke Pines Charter in the Lady Tigers 6-2 championship win in the Class 6A State Championship at the Vero Beach Sports Village in Vero Beach on Sunday. King also finished with two hits. Our motto all year has been that any single girl could carry us, Williams said. Theyve all had their nights and we real-ly dont have any weak spots. The Lady Tigers raced out to a 3-0 lead after two innings on Saturday before the weather hit includ-ing two runs in the first inning. King walked to lead off the game and Kvistads first single moved her over to second before Tatum Morgan drove both of them in with a shot down the first-base line for the 2-0 lead. Columbia got another RBI from Tatum Morgan in the second inning to score Lauren Eaker after she reached on an infield hit. The hit by Tatum Morgan was delivered with the bases loaded and two outs after she beat out a throw at first. After the game resumed on Sunday morning, Columbia went scoreless in its first inning back at the plate, but added three runs in the fifth inning to help bust the game open. Kvistad delivered a double that would have been gone in a lot of parks to deep center and scored L.A. Ronsonet, who was running for Anderson as a courtesy runner, and King to give the Lady Tigers a 5-0 lead. We were saying from the beginning that three might not be enough, Kvistad said. We wanted to get more just in case and I was able to make the most of my opportunity. Kvistad would then cross home on an error by Pembroke Pines on a ball hit by Tatum Morgan to give the Lady Tigers a 6-0 lead. When Kvistad crossed the plate, the Lady Tigers started to believe it was their game to lose. When she scored on the error, I knew that we had this, Williams said. From that moment forward, it was about turn-ing the game over to the defense and earning six more outs. Pembroke Pines was able to plate two runs despite not earning a hit in the game in the sixth inning. After walks loaded the bases a passed ball allowed Courtney Dart to score. Claire Blount then scored on a sacrifice fly by Bridget Blount to make the score 6-2, but Columbia was able to get out of the inning after Caleigh McCauley hit Tatum Morgan on the cutoff to catch the runner heading toward third base. When McCauley made that double play it was huge for us, Williams said. Thats something we prac-tice every day. We always practice that and thats one area that we have really improved at this year. The Lady Tigers didnt add anything to their lead in the top of the final inning, but it was only about three outs at that point. Anderson didnt give Pembroke Pines a chance as she recorded three-straight outs including the final out which was caught by catcher Hollianne Dohrn. I couldnt even see the final out, but I heard the crowd noise and knew that we had won, Williams said. I turned to (assis-tant coach) Greg (Sund) and asked him who caught it. When I turned back toward the field, I could see Dohrn crying. They all wanted that last out. And a theme for the Lady Tigers all season was that they wanted to win their last game. The only way to do that was win a state championship. Mission accomplished.

DEAR ABBY: I am a woman in my late 40s and I hate sex. I always have and always will. Im dis-abled, and it has always been torture. I never got any positive benefits out of it. My problem is I get hit on constantly. I tried marriage once, more for financial reasons than any-thing else, but I couldnt wait to get out. Im single now, own my own home, and the men in this town (married and single) all seem to think Im fair game. Theyre convinced that Im in need of satisfac-tion because I dont date or have a steady man in my life. I have told them repeatedly that its not going to happen, but every once in a while one pops up on my doorstep or approaches me in town, only to be told AGAIN to leave me alone. Please dont tell me to see a therapist. The last one I went to tried to tell me I was gay. No! Im sim-ply happy being single and sex-free. I go where I want and dont have to answer to anyone. Short of run-ning these idiots off with a shotgun, how do I get it through their thick skulls that Im not available? -SEXLESS BY CHOICE DEAR SEXLESS: Although we live in a sex-obsessed society, not everyone -male or female -is a sexual creature. Your therapist should not have tried to label you as gay. You appear to be asexual, which you describe as hap-pily sex-free. The next time you are hit on by one of these men -who, by the way, prob-ably think that by doing so they are helping -tell him you are happy with your life just the way it is, and it isnt necessary to offer help where none is needed. Period. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I really like this girl, but my par-ents absolutely cannot stand her. They hate that she has a tattoo and a lip ring, but her appearance has had no effect on her professional life, as she is on the road to success in her field. I am not writing to ask whether I should stay with her, because I intend to. Shes an amazing person, a hard worker, a trustworthy partner and, most of all, shes my best friend. How can I diffuse potentially combustible situ-ations with my parents, who always try to put her down no matter how often I plead my case? -JOE IN RHODE ISLAND DEAR JOE: Whether your parents approve or not, tattoos seem to have become a rite of passage for many people of your generation, and so have lip rings, eyebrow rings and multiple ear piercings. If you are over 21 and liv-ing independent of your parents, then you have the right to choose the women you become involved with. From your letter, Id say your values are mature. In time, your parents may recognize the fine qualities you see in this young woman. If they dont, they may wind up estranging a son. Right now, getting into a debate about her will be a losing proposition and Im advis-ing you against it. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): An emotional incident can be expected. The way you handle peers, col-leagues, clients or anyone you do business with will make a difference to your future direction and prospects. Do not divulge secret information or get involved in a secret encounter. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Pick up the pace. Take on a worthy cause or do what you can to support your community. A sense of belonging will bring you closer to people shar-ing your concerns. Listen carefully to whats being offered. Respond with enthusiasm. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Protect your assets and keep tabs on what and whom you owe. Negotiate legal and contractual issues, but be sure to get whatever you agree upon in writing. A personal relationship can cause you grief due to uncertainty or infidelity. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emotions will be close to the surface. Put your effort into a creative endeavor, learning a lan-guage or trying something unusual. Getting together with someone from a dif-ferent background will broaden your outlook. A partnership will enhance your life. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Stubbornness will be fol-lowed with repercussions if you arent willing to compromise. Additional responsibilities may weigh you down, but the rewards will be worth your while. A change in attitude will help you find common ground with someone you are at odds with. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Emphasize what you can do for others as well as what you can learn. Do not mix business with plea-sure or let a professional incident escalate. A chance to integrate what you know into a project that interests you will pay off. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will learn from the people you encounter and the places you visit. A cultural event will spark ideas and new possibilities. Youll be surprised at how easy it is to change direc-tion if you take action and make it happen. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Youll be daydreaming and tweaking your imagi-nation with the thoughts you ponder. Create a plan that can buy you the free-dom you want and start the ball rolling. Youll get help from an unusual source. Do whatever it takes to reach your goals. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may desire change, but dont do anything rash. Self-improvement will help you project a better image and more confidence. Love and romance are in the stars, but honesty may be lack-ing. Check motives before you give your heart away. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Follow a path that you feel comfortable pursuing. Get involved with people you feel can and will help you reach your goals. Express your emotions openly and take sugges-tions someone makes seri-ously. Communication will lead to resolution. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Youll have to deal with pressure and added responsibility. Dealing with someone in an authoritative position may be intimidating, but if you are well-prepared you should be able to handle any situations you face. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Concentrate on your skills and talents and put them to the test. Networking functions will enable you to connect with people who are try-ing to reach similar goals. Banding together with the right people will pay off. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Teeth Before Before After After Tiger wins The Players Championship with strong finish Associated Press PONTE VEDRA BEACH One bad tee shot made Tiger Woods appear vulnerable. One clutch par putt and a critical birdie made him look invincible. Woods closed out The Players Championship on Sunday like he has so many other tournaments: hitting big shot after big shot down the stretch. His latest unflappable finish helped him secure his fourth victory of 2013 and capture the richest prize on the PGA Tour for the first time in a dozen years. I know a lot of people ... thought I was done, said Woods, who has never won four times this early in a season. But Im not. This one had to be special. Woods won the final showdown against Sergio Garcia after a weekend filled with tense stares and sharp words. Woods and Garcia were tied for the lead with two holes to play before heading in opposite direc tions. Woods kept his shots on land and made two pars. Garcia hit three balls into the water for a quadruple bogey-double bogey finish. If there was any satisfaction in beating Garcia again, Woods kept that to himself. Woods allowed the final hour to turn into a tense duel by hooking his tee shot into the water on the par-4 14th hole for double bogey. But his short game bailed him out to save par on the 15th and make a sand-save birdie on the 16th. The shot that turned the tide was the putt on 15, Woods said. To go double bogey-bogey would have been huge. But to save a putt there and get some momen tum going was big.
