By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliamson@lakecityreporter The Columbia County real estate market contin ued a slow upward trend during April, attempting to move from a stable market to an emerging market, the executive director of the Lake City Board of Realtors said. Realtors closed on 33 single-family houses last month, a 6.5 percent increase over the 31 sales in April 2012. Days on the market for existing homes fell by nearly 41 percent since April 2012 from 142 days to 84 days last month; and the months inventory of properties available dropped from 16.3 months in April 2012 to 12.7 months in April 2013. I would hesitate to call it a sellers market, said Dan Gherna, execu tive director of the Board of Realtors. People had been reluctant to put houses on the market before. Now, new listings are increasing monthly, with an uptick to 86 new list ings in April from 76 in March and 74 in April 2012. Gherna said sellers are testing the real estate market to see how much they could get for their homes. The market is shifting, but not as fast as sellers would want, said Stan Batten, Board of Realtors president. Batten suggested that the influx of homes on the market may be, in small part, the result of the time of year. After school ends, more people relocate, he said. The median sale price for April increased to $113,000 from $98,500 in March. For most of the year, the median sale price has been over $100,000, fluctuating between $103,000 and $133,000 since April 2012, when it was $105,000. Because Columbia County is such a small sample size, Gherna said, if a house sells for an extremely high amount or an extremely low People ................. 2A Opinion ............... 4A Obituaries ............. 5A Advice & Comics ....... 4-5B Puzzles ............... 4-5B TODAY IN PEOPLE Boys Ranch support.

Water wont be cut IRS head moves to quell scandal By DEREK GILLIAM email@example.com Some Lake City business owners are asking Whats a backflow preventer? after a letter from city staff arrived in the mail that said they must submit a required annual test of the device or face having their water turned off. Steve Roberts, director of city water services, said the state requires that business es test backflow preventer devices, which prevent cross contamination of city water with contaminants from pri vate water lines. Backflow preventers stop the water from being sucked from pri vate water lines into the city water system.

Waiter faces debit card theft counts By DEREK GILLIAM firstname.lastname@example.org A waiter at Lake Citys Olive Garden stole a customers debit card and rang up more than $500 in unauthorized charges, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrest report. Anthony Paul Baggett, 24, 3012 SW Main Blvd., faces felony charges of fraud (illegal use of a credit card) and grand theft, the report said. Burton Duncan called the THEFT continued on 3A IRS continued on 3A By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press WASHINGTON Moving quickly to stem a raging controversy, the new acting head of the Internal Revenue Service started cleaning house Thursday by replacing the supervisor who oversaw agents involved in targeting tea party groups. A day after she refused to answer questions at a congres sional hearing, Lois Lerner was placed on administrative leave, according to congres sional sources. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said Lerner was asked to resign but refused, so she was placed on leave. An IRS spokeswoman said the agency could not comment on Lerners status because it was a private personnel matter. Danny Werfel, the agencys new acting commissioner, told IRS employees in an email that he had selected a new acting head of the division, staying within the IRS to find new leadership. Ken Corbin, a 27-year IRS veteran, will be the new acting director of the agencys exempt organizations division. Corbin currently is a deputy director in the wage and investment division, where he oversees 17,000 workers responsible for processing 172 million individual and business tax returns, Werfel said. Werfels email Thursday made no mention of Lerner. But congressional aides who were briefed on the matter confirmed that Lerner was placed on paid administra tive leave. The aides spoke on condition of anonymity because a personnel matter was involved. From all accounts so far, the IRS acting commissioner was on solid ground to ask for her resignation, Grassley said in a statement. The IRS owes it to taxpayers to resolve her situation quickly. The agency needs to move on to fix the conditions that led to the tar geting debacle. She shouldnt be in limbo indefinitely on the taxpayers dime. Lerners lawyer, William W. Taylor III, did not immedi ately respond to requests for comment. Lerner is the IRS official who first publicly disclosed on May 10 that IRS agents had been targeting tea party and other conservative groups for additional scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status. At the time, she apologized Those involved in targeting tea party groups replaced.

Rick Scott hit major media markets to remind voters how he pushed legislators for teacher pay raises and tax cuts. Now Republican leg-islative leaders are making a similar trip while Scott is out of the country on a trade mission. On Wednesday, Senate President Don Gaetz and House Speaker Will Weatherford visited an armory and a childrens center in the morning and stopped at Tampa Bay Technical High School in the afternoon, just before kids streamed out of the school for the day. They refused to call it a victory tour. But they conceded the goal was the same: Bring attention to legislation and funding increases approved this year by state legislators flush with a budget surplus for the first time in years. I think the Legislature doesnt do a good enough job of talking about what we do during session, Weatherford said during the Tampa stop. The two men were positively jovial, praising each others efforts during the legislative session as they spoke with Hillsborough School District administra-tors and teachers. There are plans to take the Work Plan Florida tour to other parts of the state later this summer.Court sides with public defenders TALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court is siding with public defend-ers who believe they should be able to reject cases if they dont have the budget and lawyers to adequately represent poor people charged with crimes. Thursdays ruling overturns an appeals court decision that said public defenders had to accept the cases to represent those who cant afford lawyers. The Supreme Court cited statistics that show public defenders in Miami-Dade were taking on 200 to 300 cases beyond what they should have been able to handle. It also mentioned conditions that often meant defenders had to start trial before they could interview witnesses or visit crimes scenes. The court asked the original Miami-Dade County court to determine whether public defenders are still overburdened.Man arrested in death of bird OCKLAWAHA A north Florida man faces charges after fatally shoot-ing a red-bellied wood-pecker that was eating the plums from his trees.

Two protesters went into the Manhattan hotel where the Wendys meeting was taking place. Wendys spokesman Bob Bertini said they attended the meeting as qualified shareholders. Bertini said the Ohio-based company expects its tomato suppliers to take care of their employees.Aretha Franklin postponing shows LOS ANGELES Aretha Franklin is taking off the month of June. A spokesman for the 71-year-old singer says Franklin will reschedule two shows and resume her touring schedule in July. Publicist David Brokaw provided no other details Tuesday. Franklin announced earlier this month that she would cancel sched-uled performances in Chicago and Connecticut this week to undergo medical treatment. She did not specify what type of treatment she was receiving. Franklin appeared on the season finale of American Idol last week via satellite, singing a medley of her hits with the shows female finalists.Darius Rucker rides to top of charts NASHVILLE, Tenn. Darius Rucker is a fan of Old Crow Medicine Show, but says he didnt really get what was so infectious about the string bands signature hit Wagon Wheel at first. Then he heard the faculty band at his daughters school play the song and its appeal all started to open up for him. Im sitting there listening to it and I say to myself what I always say to myself, I want to cut this song, Rucker said. I say it all the time but I never end up cutting anything. But with this song it was, All right, lets try it. I didnt know how big it was until after I cut it, until after it was a single. I didnt know that every college student south of the Mason-Dixon Line in the last eight years knows this song. I had no idea. I thought it was just another Old Crow song until I recorded it and real-ized it wasnt just another Old Crow song. So far, Ruckers version of Wagon Wheel is the most success-ful song of his country career. The cut from his third Nashvillerecorded album, True Believers, out this week, has sold nearly 1.2 million copies and sat atop the coun-try charts for three consecutive weeks earlier this year.

He told deputies he left the card in a bill holder at Olive Garden, 3072 W. U.S. 90, after paying for his fami lys meal Tuesday night. On Wednesday, Duncan checked his bank account and discovered four unau thorized charges totaling $503.49, including two from Walmart on U.S. 90. Deputy Murray Smith went to the Olive Garden and spoke with the man ager, Beth Martin. Martin checked the restaurants records and told him Baggett was the waiter who served the Burton family. She gave a description of Baggett, which the deputy used to identify him from Walmart security footage, the report said. Smith then went to Baggetts home. Baggett admitted to using the card, but said it was an accident, according to the report. The report said he said he thought it was his debit card. Later, Baggett changed the story. He said he knew he was using Duncans card because he had to sign Burtons name, the report said. The items he purchased were seized as evidence, along with Duncans and Baggetts debit cards. Baggett had to tell his father where to find Duncans debit card, the report said. Baggett was taken to Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $10,000 bail. CRASH: Woman thrown from car Continued From Page 1A run over by and trapped beneath a vehicle that had been traveling behind Mayes car. The driver and passen gers in the other vehicle were not hurt, accord ing to a Florida Highway Patrol report. The wreck occurred near the 417 mile mark er on I-75, south of Lake City. All three northbound lanes of I-75 were blocked for about 45 minutes as emergency crews ren dered aid to the crash vic tims. At least four Columbia County Fire Department units responded, as well as several Columbia County Sheriffs deputies. Authorities opened one northbound lane of traf fic, on the emergency lane, until around 11 a.m., when a helicopter arrived to take Crumedy to Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Additional FHP troopers closed the Ellisville inter change on-ramp at mile marker 414, and traffic was re-routed onto U.S. 441/41 as a temporary detour. According to FHP, Mayes was driving a 1997 Toyota Camry northbound in the center lane of I-75, with Crumedy as his pas senger. A 2012 Mazda CX9, driv en by Charles Matthew Turner, 44, who was trav eling with Stephanie M. Turner, 40; Alaina Turner, 4; and Matisyn Turner, 4 all of McCalla, Ala. as passengers, were behind Mayes vehicle. FHP said witnesses reported Mayes was driv ing in an erratic manner when he apparently lost control of the car and it traveled into the median and struck the guardrail with its front bumper. The car then spun coun terclockwise, striking the guardrail again with its rear and traveled back onto the highway, where Crumedy was thrown onto the roadway. Charles Turner was unable to avoid Crumedy and ran over her. Mayes vehicle came to rest facing west between the northbound emergen cy lane and inside lane. Turners vehicle came to final rest facing east in the outside lane with Crumedy trapped underneath the vehicle. Emergency responders were able to raise Turners vehicle and extricate Crumedy. Mayes was taken to the Lake City Medical Center with serious injuries, and Crumedy was listed in crit ical condition at Shands. Neither was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, FHP said. THEFT: Waiter allegedly took card Continued From Page 1A WATER: Testing notice not a threat Continued From Page 1A water services to shut the water off to prevent con tamination, he said. However, Roberts said he doesnt have any plans to shut off businesses access to city water. In Lake City, there are thousands of backflow pre venters but only two people in city Water Services who could check for possible vio lations, Roberts said. The letter was a way for the city to follow state law, while not hiring additional employees to bring local businesses into compliance with the law. There are two ways water could be sucked back into the city water supply, Roberts said. One is if a large fire were to require firefighters to draw enough water to create low pres sure in the lines. Another way would be if a private line were to exceed the pressure the city uses to pump water to homes and businesses. The requirement for com mercial and industrial busi nesses to have backflow preventers was mandated by the federal government with the 1986 Clean Water Act and amended in the early1990s, Roberts said. Every industrial and commercial business is required to have a backflow preventer, but the city can waive the requirement for certain businesses if theres a low risk of contamination, Roberts said. For example, law offic es usually do not pose a risk to city water because theres not a contaminant that could be sucked into the city water supply. But every hospital must have a backflow preventer, he said. Some residents also received the letter. Current law requires every home with an irrigation system or a well connected to the homes pipes to have a back flow preventer, Roberts said. However, a study may soon change that require ment, as it says there has never been a proven case where a irrigation system caused a contaminant to be introduced into a public water supply, Roberts said. He said there is a push to have the requirement for residential users with irrigation systems to have backflow preventers discon tinued. While the city doesnt plan on shutting off the fau cet on businesses that have not completed the required annual test of backflow preventers, they did hire a company to inspect busi nesses to see if the device is necessary, Roberts said. The cost for the inspec tions will run the city about $58,000 over the next three years, Roberts said. Businesses will not be required to pay for the inspections, Roberts said. The inspection will deter mine if a business needs a backflow preventer. Also, the city is in the process of putting together com petitive bids for all city business for the required annual backflow preventer tests. Backflow preventers range in price from about $250 to $500. The cost of installation can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand. MARKET: Real estate sales trend up Continued From Page 1A amount the median sale price gets skewed. Suwannee County saw much lower numbers, with closed sales dropping from 10 in March to nine in April. New listings in the county increased from 30 in March to 32 in April, and new pending sales also increased from eight in March to 10 in April. Median days on the mar ket in Suwannee County skyrocketed to 233 days in April, up from 136 days in March and 77 days in April 2012. I think Tropical Storm Debby had a big impact, Batten said. Its still in the back of peoples minds about the flooding that happened there. ... Im not blaming it for all of that, but I think it does have an impact. However, for the size of the rural county, he said, the numbers are pro portionate. IRS: New head tries to quell scandal Continued From Page 1A on behalf of the IRS, but it wasnt enough to stop a firestorm of criticism from the White House and Congress. If Lerner, a career civil servant, is dismissed she would become the third IRS official to lose their job in the scandal. Last week, President Barack Obama forced acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller to resign, replacing him with Werfel, a former White House budget offi cial who started at the IRS on Wednesday. Also last week, Joseph Grant, one of Millers top deputies, announced plans to retire June 3, according to an internal IRS memo. Grant had just been named commissioner of the agen cys tax exempt and gov ernment entities division, which includes the agents who targeted tea party groups. Grant had been the act ing head of the division since 2010. Backflow pre venters range in price from about $250 to $500. The cost of installation can range from a few hundred dol lars to several thousand.
A s Memorial Day nears, the plight of Americans who have borne the burden of fighting our wars should be uppermost in the minds of their countrymen. The growing frustration with the failure of the Veterans Administration to eliminate a huge and grow-ing backlog of disability claims by members of the uni-formed services is well justified and demands a timely response from the Obama administration. Understandably, the VA has been overwhelmed. The global war on terrorism and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have required the services of millions of Americans, many of whom have been obliged to make repeated tours of duty in combat zones.... As of last September, according to a report by McClatchy Newspapers, more than 1.6 million military members formerly deployed in whats classified as the global war on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan, primar-ily had transitioned to veteran status.... These numbers are staggering, but they should not serve as an excuse for the failure of the VA to att end to the needs of the veterans in a timely manner. The V A has won major, well-justified budget increases unde r President Obama, but the number of veterans consign ed to the prolonged backlog has only continued to grow According to Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, as of this week, 873,680 veterans have applied for VA disability benefits and are still waiting. Of these, 584,308 have been in the queue over 125 days. Some reports say average wait time in larger cities can be nearly two years, or 600 days. Delays have increased despite the installation of a $300 million computer sys-tem to process claims and the hiring of 765 additional claims processors since 2010.... According to published investigative reports, Florida is not among the worst states for backlogs, but with 1.6 million veterans residing in the Sunshine State, it is one of the most seriously affected by the problem at the VA. Eric Shinseki, the retired 4-star general who runs the VA, has promised to end the backlog by 2015, but thats not enough. The organization should set bench-marks for completing the task and report to the public on whether they are being met. It is particularly frustrating for younger veterans to try to deal with a system that still functions under rules and processes developed decades ago in which obtaining health records can be a lengthy process. The sooner that an integrated digital health system can be put in place, the sooner that veterans can have their claims adjudicated. As the younger veterans age in the coming decades, the number of those applying for disability benefits will only grow. Its past time to stop putting veterans in backlog limbo. They answered the call when America went to war. Now its time for their country to be there for them.

BY EMAIL: email@example.com Amazing psychology!W hy do great golfers or actors tend to have children with such talents and abilities? Its true: You inherit the genes your parents were born with and passed on to you. Its also true that youre a combination of the genes you inher-it, and all of your life experiences, and everything you learn during your life. But scientists have also recently discovered that the major life experiences of your parents, and even the important lessons they learned in their lives, actually attach to their genes and are passed on to you! By studying personalities and traits of twins, researchers have found that about 87 percent of what each of us becomestraits like intelligence, disposition, and talentsis what we inherit. The other 13 percent is what we become because of our life experiences, and things we learn in our lifetime. Now, we find out that the 87 per-cent also includes a lot of what our parents, and even our ancestors, learned in their own lifetimes. Folk wisdom and common sense have long told us that terrible tragedies and great learning experi-ences can be passed on to our chil-dren. Science has typically played this down, as myths or superstition. But now theres a scientific explana-tion for how this can happen. In May of 2013, Discover Magazine published an article by Dan Hurley, Trait Versus Fate, with an expla-nation. He asked, Is our behavior rooted in the experiences of our grandparents and distant ances-tors? Grandmas lousy childhood or adventures seem to change your personality, and bring you traits, anxiety, and resilience, by altering the expression of genes in the brain. He explains that the genome is the blueprint of life, kind of like an Etch-A-Sketch. When we expe-rience strong emotions, or have a major learning experience, the body produces chemicals (methyl group hormones) that actually attach to the DNA, our genes. Therefore, the attitudes, behavior, and personality traits the parents acquired in their lifetimes can be passed on to their kids. What does this mean to you? What can you do? Do you have a special talent? Do you have a special knack or natural skill or interest? It may be enough just to become aware and recognize your inborn traits, talents, habits, and personality, and to use that informa-tion to build the best life you can for yourself. Make the most of what youve got to work with! Q Miami Herald Military veterans cant keep waiting Obama: Plausible deniability? T he name of the game is and always has been Plausible Deniability. The goal is to protect the big guy in the Oval Office from prior knowledge of politically damaging activity. You know thats true when What did the president know, and when did he know it? becomes the para-mount question. There is no way of knowing for sure, but its a good bet that those around George Washington applied the PD standard when it was discovered that land speculators -including some in his family -sold the nation a bunch of swamp-land for the site of the District of Columbia. Since then, it would be difficult to find a chief executive except William Henry Harrison, who died almost before he got started, who hasnt benefited from this policy. So its no surprise that the counsel to President Barack Obama and possibly other aides decided not to tell the boss that the Internal Revenue Service was being inves-tigated for some bad decisions -which, to the general public and anyone who isnt in complete denial, seemed pretty much like an effort to get the presidents conservative enemies. The furor over such Nixonian activities, they reasoned correctly, would be huge. Everything pos-sible should be done to keep the rub-off on the boss as small as possible, including his getting out front by denouncing such dastardly business maybe even before the Inspector Generals report came out. Former Attorney General Edwin Meese, who had been one of Ronald Reagans key advisers for years, including service as his White House chief of staff, was at the Justice Department when he found out about the effort to sell weapons to Iran and use the money to finance the Nicaraguan contras. Meese, a very smart man and obviously an honest one, blew the whistle, knowing full well that this could be a very bad problem for the president and his admin-istration. Fortunately for Reagan, the investigation by a special pros-ecutor, who spent millions of tax-payers dollars, never could prove the president knew in advance of the deal. Plausible Deniability worked. Nixon probably would have won the PD game had it not been for his penchant for keeping detailed records of his days in office, includ-ing the recordings of his Oval Office conversations that ultimately did him in. Its tough to claim lack of knowledge under those circum-stances. Perhaps he should have listened to Democratic Rep. Joe Waggoner of Louisiana when he advised him in a telephone conver-sation shortly after revelation to burn the tapes. The matter of What did Obama know, and when did he know it? -a question posed first about Nixon by Sen. Howard Baker of Tennessee, as ranking Republican on the Senate Watergate Committee -may seem especially relevant in this case. But its difficult, if not impossible, to determine. But the decision to conduct an activity that any pru-dent man, even a lower-level drone in Cincinnati, would understand is political dynamite had to come from somewhere. Whose idea was it? Who decided that organizations applying for tax-exempt status with Tea Party or Patriot in their names needed intense scrutiny as possible scams? That obviously will be the focus of a scandal that isnt going away and will have ramifications as far away as next years mid-term elec-tions. So far, no one is lining up to accept the blame or point fin-gers. The head of the IRS dur-ing Obamas first term, Douglas Shulman, has testified to Congress that he was upset it happened on his watch. He also said that he kept himself apart from such activities because he was a political appoin-tee. Are you kidding me? Where do we get guys with this kind of judg-ment? There is ample evidence that the White House was involved with the Treasury much earlier than first believed on how to get ahead of the game, to keep the whole busi-ness from blowing up in their faces. Guess what? It did. What is difficult to swallow is that such a potentially explosive sce-nario would be kept from the man who, Plausible Deniability notwith-standing, is going to take the heat: Barack Obama.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, May 24 & 25, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A 6AF&V Changing our thinkingT he story of Naaman (2 Kings 5) being healed of his leprosy has a lot of informa-tion about faith and how it is put into practice in our lives. We see the faith of a child compared to that of a valiant warrior. We see the reluctance of a man while a young girl encourages him. We see the pride of a man being overcome so that he can receive a cure for his incurable disease. The story begins with a little girl who had been taken captive wishing that her master could go and see the prophet in Samaria who she believed would heal her master. The age of the girl is not known but what we do know about her is the confidence she had in the abilities of the proph-et. We also see that she was willing to do something good for her enemy. Such qualities of children should be adopted by every adult. Because of his status with the king of Syria and the letter which the king wrote on his behalf, the captain of the army thought the prophet of Samaria would do something great for him. When this prophet sent his own servant to tell this officer in the Syrian kings army what to do to be cleansed of his leprosy, Naaman was insulted and went away furious (2 Kings 5:11). Naaman thought he would be told to do something great. He thought he would be told to dip in the beautiful rivers of Damascus, certainly not in the dirty waters of the Jordan. This time he went away in a rage. It took the words of his servants to convince him to do what the prophet of Samaria told him to do. When Naaman finally gave in and dipped seven times in the Jordan River, his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean (2 Kings 5:14). His obedience to the words of the prophet of God produced the desired results, namely his skin was no longer covered with sores. How often are we like Naaman? We want God to give us something great to do, but we do not want to do the simple things he has commanded. We want someone to write a letter on our behalf to someone who is very important, but a small word from a servant we find insulting. There are a lot of things which we must give up if we are going to live by faith. We must not look for the glamour in our obedience to God. We must be willing to do even the small things which He has commanded us to do. We must do what God has said even though we thought He would want us to do something differ-ent. We can think about how things must be in order for God to cleanse us. However, unless we are willing to do exactly what He has said, we will remain as dirty as we always have been. This story is a great lesson in that children can understand what God wants adults to do. Servants can reason with their masters about what God wants them to do. Our rage and fury will not change what God has command-ed for us to do in order for us to be made clean. Only when we do things just like God has said, we will be made clean. If it takes being instructed by a child or encouraged by a ser-vant, lets do what God has com-manded. Lets do what it takes for us to be made clean. M any today dis-count the Book of Revelation as fact. They try to say the things recorded in the book have already happened, or it is spiri-tual and no one knows what it means for sure. But today, I want you to know it is the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the unveiling of Him who said, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me (John 14:6). It is meant for us to study and understand. If it were not for us to understand, Revelation 1:3 would not say, Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near. If it were not to be understood, how could we pos-sibly keep those things that are written in it? Let me say here that if you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, you dont have to worry about all the things that the Bible says will happen on earth. If you are not saved, no mat-ter what you believe, it will not change the fact that the things recorded in the book will hap-pen. Revelation 9:1-11 records the sound of the Fifth Trumpet, only one of the 21 plagues that are to fall on earth during the Seven Year Tribulation period: Then the fifth angel sounded: and I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were dark-ened because of the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them. The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. They had hair like womens hair, and their teeth were like lions teeth. And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle. They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months. And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon. Again, this is only one of the 21 plagues that are recorded in Revelation that will come on mankind. If you dont know Jesus, now is the time.

Its hard to tell how much these Overstuffed bags containing 10 Vaul t Bags full of money could be worth someday. Thats because ea ch Vault Bag is known to contain over 100 U.S. Govt issued coins some dating back to the early 1900s.State zip codes determine who gets free Silver coins FLORIDA The phone lines are ringing off the hook. Thats because for the next 2 days Vault Bags containing valuable U.S. Govt issued coins are actually being handed over to Lake City area residents who find their zip code listed in to-days publication. Its hard to tell how much these Vault Bags could be worth. Thats because after they were loaded with over 100 U.S. Govt issued coins including: Silver, scarce, highly collectible and circulating coins the dates were unsearched and the bags were sealed for good. But, we do know that some of the coins date clear back to the early 1900s. Any one of these Vault Bags could be worth a small fortune, said Timothy J. Shissler, Chief Numismatist for the private World Reserve. The only thing residents need to do is find their zip code on the Distribution List printed in todays publication. If their zip code is on the list, they need to immediately call the National Claim Hotline before the 2-day order deadline ends. Everyone who does is being given the 90% pure Silver Walking Liberty coin for free just by covering the Vault Bags each loaded with over 100 U.S. Govt issued coins for only $99 each as long as they call before the deadline ends. Since this advertising announcement cant stop dealers and collectors from hoarding all the valuable coins they can get their hands on, the World Reserve had to set a strict limit of ten Vault Bags per resident. Coin values always fluctuate and there are never any guarantees, but those who get in on this now will be the really smart ones. Just think what some of these coins could be worth someday, said Shissler. Each Vault Bag is loaded with a small fortune containing in part, highly sought after valuable collector coins dating clear back to the 1900s including a 90% pure Silver Walk-ing Liberty Half Dollar, an Eisenhower Dollar, some of the last ever minted U.S. Dollars, Ken-nedy Half Dollars, Silver Mercury Dimes, rare-ly seen Liberty V Nickels, nearly 100 year old Buffalo Nickels and circulating U.S. Govt is-sued nickels, dimes and quarter dollars. Were bracing for all the calls because there are just hours left for residents to get the Sil-ver coins free, he said. So, Lake City area residents lucky enough to find their zip code listed in todays publication need to immediately call the National Claim Hotlines before the 2-day deadline ends to get the Silver coins free. If lines are busy keep try-ing, all calls will be answered. N N LOADED WITH VALUABLE COINS: The phone lines are ringing off the hook. Thats because thousands of Vault Bags each loaded with over 100 U.S. Govt issued coins some dating back to the early 1900s including: Silver, scarce, highly collect-ible and circulating coins are being handed over to Lake City area residents. FREE: WALKING LIBERTY RED BOOK COLLECTOR VALUE $22 to $325 ENLARGED TO SHOW DETAIL VALUABLE: 90% PURE SILVER Who gets to claim the bags of money: Thousands of U.S. residents stand to miss the deadlin e to claim the money. Now Lake City area residents who find the first two digits of their zip code listed in todays publication and beat the 2 -day deadline get to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep all the U.S. Gov t issued coins found inside. I keep calling and cant get through: Thats because each Vault Bag is guaranteed to cont ain a free Silver Walking Liberty coin and just that one coin alone could be worth up to $325 in collector value. So thousands of reside nts are calling to claim as many Vault Bags as they can get before theyre all gone. In fact, since each Vault Bag fee has been re duced to just $99 nearly everyone is claiming at least three bags. So if lin es are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered How much are the Vault Bags worth: Its hard to tell how much these Vault Bags could be worth. Thats because after they were loaded with over 100 U.S. Govt issued coins i ncluding: Silver, scarce, highly collectible and cir culating coins the dates were unsearched and the bags were sealed for good. But w e do know that some of the coins date back to the e arly 1900s. That means any one of these Vault Bags could be worth a small f ortune. So you better believe at just $99 the Vault Bag fee is a real steal since the free Silver Walking Liberty coin alone could be worth up to $325 in collector value. Are the Silver Walking Liberty coins really Free: Yes. All Lake City area residents who beat the 2-da y deadline are instantly being awarded a Silver Walking Liberty coin free wi th each Vault Bag they claim. Why is the Vault Bag fee so low: Because thousands of U.S. residents have missed the deadline to claim the money its being held in limbo at the vaults of the World Reserve and it has to be moved out in the next 2 days. That mean s the money is up for grabs and now any resident who finds the first two digits of their zip code on the Distribution List below gets to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep all the U.S. Govt issued coi ns found inside. Each Vault Bag fee was set at $149, but residents who beat the 2-day deadline cover the reduced Vault Bag fee of just $99 as long as they call the National Claim Hotline be fore the deadline ends at: 1-888-282-6742 .SSB325 THE WORLD RESERVE MONETARY EXCHANGE, INC.

Graduation marks the celebration of a long-awaited accomplish ment, and you now stand at one of the biggest crossroads of your life. Graduation is the end of a path that began years ago as you left Mom and Dad to climb onto the school bus and walk into the classroom on your own. Now is the time to celebrate the end of that chapter and begin a new one with a new chal lenge: What will I do with my life? Some of you have carefully mapped out plans, while others are still struggling for answers. In your search, consider the words of Jeremiah 6:16: This is what the Lord says: Stand at the crossroads and look: ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. Stand at this crossroad and look. An intersection is a place where you must make a decision about which way to go based on where you want to end up. Consider what you have learned about life and about yourself, and look for the good way that leads to your future. The right path for living is marked out by God, but it requires a careful search to uncover. Taking the easy path will always be an option and it will often be tempting, but know that it leads to a dead-end life. When we ignore Gods map, we lose our way. Walk in it. Once you get a glimpse of that good way, dont get frustrated if you cant see the whole plan right now. Start with one step. It may be that you find the directions for the next step on the way. Get going. A tiny rudder can turn a huge ship, but only if it is moving. Be confident that God has a plan for your life. In Ephesians 2:10 the Bible tells us For we are Gods workmanship, cre ated in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. That word workmanship also means masterpiece one of a kind. God created you uniquely for a specific purpose to do good works. The kicker is that He has prepared them in advance for you to do. All we have to do is follow His map to find them. Find rest for your soul. Of all the things I could hope and pray for you, this is it. In a world full of unrest, strife and lack of peace, having rest for your soul is priceless, and it only comes from being in right standing with the one who created you. Notice that this rest comes as a result of standing, looking, ask ing, and walking with Him. Your life consists of the time between your appointed birth and death. How will you spend it? Choose carefully, because your heart and your life matters!

Columbia always believed in state dreams ASSOCIATED PRESSMarco Andretti respond to a question from the media during a interview for the Indianapolis 500 auto race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis on Thursday By MICHAEL MAROTAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS Graham Rahal and Marco Andretti have all the ingre-dients the IndyCar Series has been craving. They have famous family names, have reached Victory Lane and seem to enjoy playing up their growing rivalry. The bold, budding stars represent a whole new kind of IndyCar driver -the guys and gals who could finally become this series corner-stone fixtures for a genera-tion to come. This is a pretty young group, Rahal said. There are a lot of young people here who you could see at this track for the next 20 years. I think thats a great thing and we hope thats the case. Its not the first time IndyCar has pinned its future hopes on a bunch of twentysomethings. Those young fresh faces in the 1960s carried names such as Mario Andretti and A.J. Foyt and Al and Bobby Unser. They emerged as the foundation for IndyCars glory days and when they left in the late 80s or early t mid 90s there werent enough young up-and-com-ers to replace them. Drivers such as Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart, who developed their skills in the open-wheel feeder systems, wound up finding better opportunities and more money with NASCAR. Juan Pablo Montoya left for Formula One during the split IndyCar-CART and eventually wound up in Cup, too. The emigration eventu-ally took established open-wheel stars such as Dario Franchitti, Sam Hornish Jr. and Danica Patrick, though Franchitti returned to IndyCars after one failed season in NASCAR. Now things could be changing. These young open-wheel drivers are getting chances to prove themselves and they seem committed to hanging around for a while. Rahal, now 24, broke Young drivers give sport solid foundation. INDY continued on 3B By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comWhy not us? They were words spoken often throughout the sea-son by Columbia High soft-ball coach Jimmy Williams on the Lady Tigers way to winning the Class 6A State Championship. He used it as motivation before the season as the Lady Tigers looked for a District 4-6A Championship. He used it again when the Lady Tigers made it to the playoffs. And, yes, he used it one final time when the Lady Tigers advanced to the Final Four. But when did the Lady Tigers realize that they were good enough to win the state championship? When we went to Ocala and won the tournament, I had a feeling we were pretty good, Williams said. From the first day, I was pointing to the sign (in the locker room) and asking them, why not us? But the coach believing in a state championship was only one piece of the puzzle. For the Lady Tigers to truly accomplish that goal the entire team had to buy in. It happened at different times for different players, but they all had a moment of clarity where they began to believe it was the Lady Tigers year. I believe we thought we could do it from the start, junior Kayli Kvistad said. We believed in what coach Jimmy was telling us. And Williams knew that itd be his best team before the season. He preached it, and Kvistad wasnt the only one buying in. We knew from the beginning, because he was telling us that it was the best team that hes ever had, catcher Hollianne Dohrn said. This was what we wanted all season. Erin Anderson pitched a no-hitter in the champion-ship game, but it was only late in the season that she really believed that the Lady Tigers could make their dreams come true. I think when we got to the district champion-ship game and won that against Atlantic Coast that I realized we could win, Anderson said. They were a tough team and beat us last season, so I knew if we could beat them then we would have a chance. With six consecutive seasons in the playoffs, the Lady Tigers have built a small dynasty. Columbia graduates three seniors, but returns the core of their team again next season. The question will surely be asked, why not twice?

Woodpecker Mud Bogs and Dirt Drags set for SaturdaySpecial to the ReporterThe Wilson family is inviting everyone to the Woodpecker Mud Bogs and Dirt Drags 4th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday. Racing starts at 3 p.m. The Wilsons provide many acres of mud bog area for anything from cars to tractor-tired buggies and monster style trucks, which allow drivers to show their freestyle driving abil-ity without getting stuck in the mud. There also is a 4-wheeler mud pond and many miles of wooded trails for visitors to use. An added attraction for the anniversary celebration is Side by Side Dirt Drag Racing on a 200-foot, two-lane drag race style track. This event will be electroni-cally timed by a new tim-ing system complete with a Christmas tree start. Some of the Souths fastest off-road vehicles are expected with engines pro-ducing 800-1000 horsepow-er. ATVs are not included in this event. Race Director Steve Raulerson said consistency will be the big paying class of the event and allows any-one the opportunity to win. The object in this race is the driver makes two pass-es and tries to match both times, with the driver hav-ing the least amount of dif-ference being the winner. Entry fee is $20 for this event and will pay out five places. Also on tap will be 4-wheeler and street legal dirt drag classes. Sponsors of the celebration are The Boat Doctor, Complete Automotive, Peloni Pumping, Mrs. Wezzies and Pete Olins U.S. Auto Parts.

R Gigolos INDY: Circuit gets flavor of youth Continued From Page 1BAndrettis record as the youngest winner in IndyCar history five years ago and finished second at Long Beach after making the switch to another new team, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. His father, Bobby, is one of the co-owners and the 1986 Indy winner. The younger Rahal will start 26th in Sundays race. Andretti, 26, also drives for his father, Michael, has had four straight top-10 finishes, all on the road and street courses that had caused him so much grief over the years. And dur-ing the offseason, Andretti redoubled his efforts to win a championship by seeking advice from a driving coach to help with the non-ovals. The abundance of young talent runs far deeper than just the big names. Two years ago, JR Hildebrand was one corner away from becoming the first American rookie to win the 500 since Louis Meyer in 1928. Hes had five top-fives in his last 36 races and just missed making Indys pole shootout last weekend. The 25-year-old Panther Racing driver will start 10th Sunday, the inside of Row 4. The flamboyant Josef Newgarden, a 22-year-old Tennessee kid, reached last years pole shootout and, after failing to record a top-10 during his rookie season in 2012, he already has two top-10s in first four races this year. Hell start 25th for Sarah Fishers team. At 21, Conor Daly became the youngest American rookie to qualify for the 500 since Rahal in 2008. His father, Derek, is a for-mer Formula One driver who started six times at Indy and hes running for A.J. Foyt. Hell start on the inside of Row 11 on the three-car, 11-row grid. Colombian rookie Carlos Munoz has been turning heads all month at the famous 2.5-mile oval. The 21-year-old Firestone Indy Lights points leader has started every race this sea-son, regardless of series, on the front row. He will do that again Sunday after qualifying second. Hes the first rookie to put his car on Indys coveted front row since Montoya, also a Colombian, did it in 2000. Montoya went on to win the race at age 24. James Hinchcliffe, the 2011 IndyCar rookie of the year, has won twice already this year and could emerge as a championship con-tender if he can become more consistent. And the 26-year-old Canadian has become a huge part of sell-ing the sport engaging fans at the track and on social media, coaching driv-ers, even agreeing to those mind-numbing interviews when nobody else wants to. Hell start ninth for the Andretti team. Swiss driver Simona de Silvestro, age 24, wowed Indy fans with her coura-geous qualifying run in 2011. She is currently ninth in the points and quali-fied 24th with KV Racing Technology. Who cant see the future? said Derrick Walker, who will become IndyCars new head of competition follow-ing Sundays race. We need more of them. We need to make sure that when they come up through the ranks, theres a future for them. It takes a lot to get in the sport, to stay in the sport. Driver Kenseth looks to continue winning ways By PETE IACOBELLIAssociated PressCONCORD, N.C. Matt Kenseth is ready to get back to work. Kenseth and his firstyear team at Joe Gibbs Racing have had plenty to celebrate this season with a Sprint Cup-best three victories and seven top-10 finishes in 11 events. But he wasnt a factor in last weeks all-star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway and knows hes got some challenges to overcome before getting back to his winning ways at the Coca-Cola 600 Sunday night. Last weekend didnt exactly go as planned, said Kenseth, who wound up ninth in the all-star event. Judging from Kenseths past performances in the 600, he might only need a couple of fast laps to turn things around. The 2003 champion won the circuits longest race in 2000, then finished among the top 10 in eight of the next 12. The 600 has always been unique, Kenseth said. We have our first win here so maybe thats part of it. This is the first track that I made my first Nationwide start at and have more miles here at this track than at any other on the circuit. Kenseth doesnt generally take much from the all-star race good or bad into the 600. Hell rely on what hes learned this season in his first go-round at JGR. The teams last suc-cess came just two weeks ago when he swept past teammate Kyle Busch in the closing laps to win the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. Kenseth stands third in points and, with NASCAR approaching its midseason before the 10-race championship chase, looks a strong bet to con-tend for a second title. Kenseth has enjoyed the success, but has kept things in perspective. Whether it was a great week or a terrible week, I think you always have to get focused on whats com-ing next and keep working on trying to get better, Kenseth said. Its an approach thats fit well at Joe Gibbs Racing. Team president J.D. Gibbs has watched the 41-year-old Kenseth take a leader-ship role in the shop with the 28-year-old Busch and the 32-year-old Denny Hamlin. I think its really been a blessing for Joe Gibbs Racing to have him join our team. We look forward to a great future, Gibbs said. Kenseth will have plenty of competitors trying to take the checkered flag in NASCARs longest race. Defending champion Kasey Kahne broke through for his first Sprint Cup vic-tory as part of Hendrick Motorsports. Five-time series champion Jimmie Johnson is on top in points again and took victory at Daytona and Martinsville along with his all-star win of last week. Johnson wont get caught up in the chase for championship number six just yet. Theres too much time, he says, for anyone to focus too much on protect-ing positions down the road.
4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MAY 24-25, 2013 DEAR ABBY: My husband and I attended the wedding of the son of some old friends in anoth-er state. Rather than buy the young couple a gift, we instead gave them a check for $1,000. Imagine our astonishment when a month later the following arrived in our mailbox: Dear Loretta and Evan, Thank you for the generous donation. We really enjoyed spending that money. If ever you feel like you have too much of it, we would gladly take it off your hands. Love, Mason and Candace Abby, my husband and I have worked hard for many years in our business and have been blessed by the Lord. We are not millionaires. We were happy and humbled to be able to share with them -until we received this. The money wasnt a donation; it was a GIFT. -STUNG IN SIOUX CITY DEAR STUNG: Lets hope the note you received was an unfortunate attempt at humor. While the message may have gone over like a lead bal-loon and Im sure the parents would be beyond embarrassed if they knew, at least you received a thank-you for your gen-erosity. I hear from many people who complain that their gifts were not acknowledged at all. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: One of my co-workers takes company research presentation books into the restroom with him multiple times a day and spends upwards of half an hour in there with them. The unsanitary implications of this drive me batty. I am not germophobic, but taking shared materials into the bathroom while youre doing your business is just too much for me. Its not like hes taking in a newspaper that can be tossed out; these are research materials that we must all share! My co-worker told me I need to get over it, that this is a me issue. Am I crazy or is taking shared workplace materials into the bathroom gross and inappropriate? -WAITING FOR E. COLI TO KILL ME DEAR WAITING: You are asking the wrong person this question. You should be asking the head of human resources or your boss. Im no germophobe either, but I agree that what your co-worker is doing is extremely inap-propriate. You should not have to sanitize your hands after touching anything your co-worker might have touched, but thats what Im suggesting you do. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have many problems, but my biggest one is, how do I forgive someone so I can move on with my life? It would take me forever to tell you everything that has been said and done. Forgiving sounds simple, but it is the hard-est thing I have ever had to do. Can you help? -CHALLENGED IN ILLINOIS DEAR CHALLENGED: If hate and resentment are eating away at you, then it is probably health-ier for you to let go of it. Forgiving someone isnt doing something for some-one else; it is a gift you give yourself that allows you to move forward with your life. Your religious adviser can help you -or, if you prefer, a licensed mental health counselor. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Im a 21year-old nursing student in college. Im a people person and everyone says Im easy to talk to. According to my friends, I am pretty, smart, funny, etc., but I have never had a boyfriend. I was extremely sick throughout high school and during my early col-lege years, and spent a lot of time in and out of the hospital. I missed not only a lot of schooling, but also learning some of the basic social skills most people my age have mastered when it comes to dating. It has been only during the last couple of years that I have been healthy enough to even consider dating, and now I have no clue what to do. I am naturally friendly and sometimes guys Im NOT interested in think Im flirting with them. However, when I try to flirt with a guy, it never works. I dont know what Im doing wrong, and my friends all gave me differ-ent advice. Do you have any tips for me, Dear Abby, on how to let a guy know Im interested? -LOSING THE DATING GAME IN FLORIDA DEAR LOSING: Yes. Be your outgoing, friendly self with everyone. Dont be afraid to smile and make eye contact. Thats the way you let others know youre interested. The problem with trying to flirt is that it can come across as awkward and aggressive, which can either bring you the wrong kind of attention or scare a man off. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been mar-ried 38 years. He doesnt drink, smoke, do drugs or chase women. Hes a good guy. But ... Twenty years ago we stopped giving each other gifts on all occa-sions because he didnt like shopping for me. I let him off the hook and said I didnt really mind. However, on his birthday I take him to his favorite seafood restaurant and bake him his favorite cake. My birthday gets forgot-ten. There is a special dessert that I love that is found only at a bakery across town. I have told him for the past 10 years how much Id love that dessert for my birthday. He has never once bought it for me. I feel its like hes telling me Im not worth the time or money. For such a small thing, it hurts my feelings a lot. Am I being silly? -SLIGHTED IN INDIANA DEAR SLIGHTED: Youre not being silly. You WERE being silly when you told your husband 20 years ago that you didnt mind if he ignored your birthday and other spe-cial occasions, because it wasnt true (or perhaps the effect on you has been cumulative). So, open your mouth and tell your hus-band -in plenty of time for your next birthday -EXACTLY what you want from him. If you dont, youll get the same thing you have been getting, which is nothing. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Im 13 and in junior high school. When we all came back after a break we were greeted with the news that one of the students in our class had died. We were only told that the death was ruled an acci-dent, but nothing else. Is it wrong or disrespectful to speculate what hap-pened to our classmate? -CURIOUS IN THE NORTHWEST DEAR CURIOUS: Speculating is neither wrong nor disrespectful. When people are given no information, it is normal for them to wonder. After the death of your class-mate, Im surprised grief counseling wasnt offered to help you and your fel-low students deal with the loss, because that is what should have happened. ** ** ** Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MAY 24 & 25, 2013 3C Kyle Busch gets his first Truck Series win of the 2013 season Kyle Busch won last weeks Camping World Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, his first Truck win of the season, his fifth at Charlotte and the 31st of his career. Behind him, two young Georgia racers scored career-best finishes. Max Gresham of Griffin finished third, and John Wes Townley of Watkinsville was eighth, tying his previous best result from Pocono Raceway last year. Gresham, 20, also led three laps, the first time hes been atop the leader board in his Truck Series career. This is really just a win all around for us, said Gresham, whose previous best finish was an 11th at Martinsville Speedway last fall. This is justification that were going in the right direction, and that [crew chief] Chris [Showalter] and I are working well together, and were getting better. This is a huge confidence-gainer for us. Were going to go to Dover and have that extra confidence, and were going to make it work. Townley, 23, also said he felt like a winner.It feels like a dream come true to be able to back it up like this; it just shows that we can only go forward from here, and thats real exciting, he said. There have been some ups and downs in my career, and this year has been overall pretty positive. Dick Trickle of Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., was the Richard Petty of the asphalt short-track racing world, especially in the Midwest, where he won an estimated 1,000 feature races. But he also built quite a resume down in Pettys territory, both on the asphalt short tracks of the South and in the elite divisions of NASCAR, where he began racing at an age when many are retiring. Few races illustrate the career of Trickle, who died last Thursday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at age 71, better than the inaugural World Crown 300 on Nov. 27, 1983, at Georgia International Speedway, now known as Gresham Motorsports Park. Legendary promoter Bob Harmon worked with track operator Rob Joyce to create the ultimate short-track race. Harmon drew in the top short trackers of the South, drivers like Ronnie Sanders, Jody Ridley, Gary Balough and Freddy Fryar, while Joyce used his connections with the American Speed Association to lure drivers from up North like Trickle, Mike Eddy, Bob Senneker and Alan Kulwicki. Then some NASCAR stars like Bobby Allison, Neil Bonnett and Darrell Waltrip, all of whom regularly mixed in some short-track racing with their activities in NASCAR, joined in, too. Trickle went against conventional wisdom and pitted for fresh tires fairly early, at Lap 123 of 300, while most waited until after the 200-lap mark to stop. But because he pitted early, when the rest stopped, he cycled into the lead and domi-nated the remainder of the race to collect a then-unheard-of payoff of $50,000. By comparison, in the fall Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway three weeks ear-lier, Bonnett collected far less, $36,975, for winning the Atlanta Journal 500. In Victory Lane, Harmons sidekick Bill Desmond placed a kings crown on Trickles head, prompting the driver to say: Im not a king. Im a race driver. And that he was. In 1989, at age 47, he was called in at the last minute to replace the injured Mike Alexander in the Stavola Brothers No. 84 Buick. Trickle took over at Rockingham, where he finished 13th, then came to Atlanta for the Motorcraft 500. While Darrell Waltrip won the race, Trickle stole the show. He ran with the leaders all day, and when the final caution flag flew with 14 laps remaining, only Waltrip, Dale Earnhardt and Trickle were on the lead lap. Waltrip and Earnhardt pitted for fresh tires, but Trickles crew chief, Jimmy Fennig, now with Carl Edwards, left his driver on the track on older tires. Fresh tires soon prevailed, but Trickle still ended up with a stunning finish. Afterward, Trickle was asked how a 47-year-old driver, who smoked cigarettes in and out of his race car, drank beer to excess and was not accustomed to 500-mile races, could be in such good shape after a long afternoon of superspeedway racing. How many laps is this race? he asked.When told that it was 328, he responded: Heck, we run 400-lappers back home all the time. Trickle went on to score top-five finishes in four of his first seven starts, and won Rookie of the Year. Although he never won at the Cup level in a points-paying race, he did win twice in the Nationwide Series, at Hickory Motor Speedway in 1997 and at Darlington in 1998, where, at age 56, he beat Dale Earnhardt Jr. to the checkered flag. Among the many drivers mentored by Trickle over the years were Mark Martin, Rusty Wallace, Alan Kulwicki and even some much younger drivers, like Matt Kenseth and Johnny Sauter. He was tough, but he was fun, Martin said. He was just a very unique person. He was in his element, short-track racing, where he didnt have to look over his shoulder or worry about anything. Thats why he didnt come NASCAR racing when he might have and was young enough that he really could have gotten his feet planted firmly here. He was doing it his way. It was just as exciting for me getting to race against him as it was the first time I got to race with Richard Petty. Kenseth described Trickle as a legend, especially to racers like him from Wisconsin. Kenseth said he visited for nearly two hours with Trickle last summer at the Slinger Nationals, a short-track event Trickle helped create. He had a ton of common sense, and he was really smart. In his obituary, Trickles family said he had been suffering for some time with severe pain. A private funeral was planned, and the family asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent in his memory to: Victory Junction, 4500 Adams Way, Randleman, N.C. 27317.The track at Charlotte Motor Speedway has been changed, and the format for the Sprint All-Star Race is rarely the same from one year to the next. But one thing is fairly certain: When the $1 million prize is on the line, Jimmie Johnson will be there battling for the win. On Saturday, the All-Star Race looked as if it would boil down to a battle between the Busch brothers, Kurt and Kyle, who had been the drivers to beat in the four opening segments, winning two apiece. But Johnson and his Chad Knaus-led crew wound up on the front row for the nal restart, and Johnson motored away, leading all of the nal 10-lap nale to become the rst four-time winner of the race, breaking a tie with Jeff Gordon and the late Dale Earnhardt. And hes done it in just 12 appearances, with his previous victories coming in 2003, 2006 and last year. Hes the second driver to win back-to-back; the rst was the late Davey Allison, in 1991 and 1992. Johnsons win was the eighth for his car owner Rick Hendrick, who has more All-Star victories than any other owner. He won with Gordon in 1995, 1997 and 2001, and with Terry Labonte in 1999. It was another Hendrick driver, Kasey Kahne, who had the best chance to derail Johnson in the nal segment. He was rst out of the pits on the nal restart, with Johnson second, but Johnson surged into the lead to win over Joey Logano and Kyle Busch, while Kahne dropped to fourth. Johnson said the key was to be up front on the restart to begin the last 10-lap run. To get there, it took a strong performance in the opening segments, plus a quick pit stop by his crew. The order in which drivers entered pit road was based on their aver-age nish in the opening segments, and Johnson was fourth. His crew gained him two spots for the restart. I felt like the winner would come from one of [the rst] two rows, Johnson said. Not to state the obvious, but thats really the goal ... to try to be in that front row for the nal restart. Once he got out front and in clean air, he drove away unchallenged to win by 1.722 seconds. Johnson and Knaus both said the lack of drama in the nal segment was due to the rules for the event. They said that with a mandatory four-tire pit stop with 10 laps to go, those who start up front likely will stay there, given the difculty of passing the leader on a high-speed track like Charlotte. Knaus said that having different tire compounds available to teams would spice up the show. I think that the amount of tires that we get, half of them should be super-softs and the other half should be normal, and that gives you an opportunity to try to do your tire strategy, he said. Once you have super-softs, you know theyre only going to last 20 laps, as opposed to the set thats going to last 60 laps like were going to run here on a typical weekend. You can strategize. When those tires fall off, thats when youre going to start to see some passing, and in a 20-lap or 10-lap segment, I think it could be very exciting to see who plays the tire strategy. But he doesnt foresee that happening because Goodyear, NASCARs exclusive tire supplier, prefers to build tires that are very durable on most tracks other than the ones with worn asphalt, such as Atlanta Motor Speedway or Texas Motor Speedway. The only way youre going to get passing is to have tire falloff like we have at Atlanta [or] maybe Texas, he said. Jamie McMurray, who has struggled in recent seasons to regain his winning form, dominated the Sprint Showdown, leading all 40 laps of the undercard event to win a spot in the All-Star Race. Once in the main event, he wound up with an eighth-place finish. I think if we ever could have gotten to the front, probably like most people, our car was extremely fast, he said. Its just really tough in traffic, but overall, we had a good car. By finishing second in the Showdown, rookie Ricky Stenhouse Jr. also advanced to the All-Star Race, where he finished 16th. He said that in addition to getting to run with the sports elite drivers, he learned things that will help him in this weekends Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte. We made a lot of adjustments under that red flag that I think gave us a direc-tion to go for next week, so it was very, very valuable, he said. I learned a few things myself out there running an extra 90 laps, which is huge. Danica Patrick won the Fan Vote to gain entry into the All-Star Race and fin-ished 20th, beating only the drivers who fell out of the race. We were just too tight, she said. The guys did a great job on pit road. That goes without saying. It was just a tough night, but hopefully we are able to figure out what was wrong and we can come back here next weekend and have a bet-ter run.
