By AMANDA WILLIAMSON email@example.com T o form a prediction about a childs adult life, one simply has to look at their early elementary school attendance habits. Students who regularly attend school from kindergarten until third grade are less likely to be high school dropouts, accord ing to research by Columbia County School District Director of Truancy Keith Hatcher. Students who graduate from high school have higher incomes, higher selfesteem and lower incarceration rates than their counterparts who drop out. In fact, according to a study con ducted by Northeastern University in Boston, dropouts between the ages of 16 and 24 have incarcera tion rates 63 times higher than those among college graduates. Starting this year, the Every Child, Every Seat, Every Day program hopes to educate parents and students about the conse quences of not attending school regularly. Hatcher created the program to inspire students using both the positive impacts of atten dance and the negative impacts of truancy.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Appeal denied for murderer Gore MIAMI A Miami federal judge has denied the latest appeal by convicted killer Marshall Lee Gore, whose execution by lethal injection is set for next week. U.S. District Judge Donald Graham ruled Thursday against Gore, who has had three pre-vious execution dates delayed this year. Graham agreed the Florida Supreme Court was rea-sonable in finding that Gores claims of insanity are unfounded. Gore was sentenced to death for the 1988 killing of exotic dancer Robyn Novick, whose body was found in rural Miami-Dade County. He was also sen-tenced to death for the separate slaying earlier in 1988 of Susan Roark in Columbia County and was convicted of attempting to kill yet another woman.El Nuevo chief to become editor NAPLES Award-winning investigative reporter and El Nuevo Herald exec-utive editor Manny Garcia has been named editor of the Naples Daily News.

Q Associated Press Howard makes believable film with RushR on Howard admits he was no racing aficionado when he set out to make the Formula One thriller Rush, chronicling the tense 1976 world championship battle between playboy James Hunt and calculating Niki Lauda. Racing movies dont have the best track record, after all. The driving has usually been unrealistic and too many directors cheated on details that insiders found offensive. I love sports, too, and I dont know much about Formula One, but I just kept thinking, If somebody made a baseball movie and if they cut to the center fielder and the center fielder was standing there with a catchers glove on, Id feel disrespected, Howard said. I didnt want those kinds of gaffes. When talking to people who really love motorsports, theyd talk about movies that werent documentaries and theyd cite mistakes, the kind of mistakes that would really just take them out of the movie. While you can never be 1,000 percent authentic, it was important that we get it right. Howard was understandably nervous when he screened Rush for the F1 community, with Lauda himself in the audience, during the German Grand Prix weekend in July.Tamblyn appears on season 11 of CBS Men NEW YORK Amber Tamblyn plays Charlie Harpers previously unknown daughter, Jenny, on the 11th season of CBS Two and a Half Men, premiering Thursday night.

Tamblyn, whose TV credits include the dramas General Hospital, Joan of Arcadia and House M.D., said she wasnt sure if she was interested in appearing on Two and a Half Men. She said her agent told her, Well, hang on. Its a genius role. ... Shes very into alcohol and women.

at the river home until he received a call from Lynda Wards sister, who told him she had called the sheriffs office. Currently, the Columbia County Dive and Recovery Team is assisting LCSO in searching the Suwannee River for clues to their whereabouts, according to CCSO public information officer Mark Pentolino. Clayton said the Wards floating wooden dock has a broken board and signs of scuff marks. Police stayed here real late, Clayton said. We left about 1 a.m., and they were still here a pile of them. But, so far there is only speculation about what might have hap-pened. Clayton believes the Wards arrived at their river home, left their keys, cell phones and purse in their Chevrolet truck to walk down to the riverside to look at the water. They hadnt even unlocked their home. The quick-moving water of the Suwannee River has risen recently with all the rain, and may have trapped logs along the edge of the dock. Clayton said the couple may have been attempting to get the logs unjammed. He added that Bill Ward could swim, but he did not say whether Lynda Ward could. Lynda and Bill Ward visited their Lafayette County river house on a weekly basis, a 35-minute drive from their main residence in Lake City. Theyve had their house for about 20 years, but the dock was in good shape, Clayton said. He said his home and the Wards neighboring home were isolated, with no sur-rounding houses. Clayton has known the Wards for about 18 years. He said they were both friends to him and his wife, calling them good people who would help you do anything. In a media release, Lafayette County Sheriff Brian Lamb said LCSO received a call at 5:09 p.m. Wednesday notifying them the Wards Bill, 69, and Lynda, 60 were missing. Lamb said in addition to CCSO, five other law enforcement agencies are assisting in the investiga-tion: the sheriffs offices of Suwannee, Duval, Gilchrist, and Franklin counties, and Mayo Correctional Institution. Lamb asked that anyone with information on the couples possible where-abouts call LCSO at (386) 294-1301. 3A Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 L AKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL FRIDAY & SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 & 28, 2013 3A COUPLE: Missing since Wednesday Continued From Page 1A truancy rate by 3 percent this year, Hatcher said. I wanted something that had never been done before. I wanted something that would help student atten-dance. The program also hopes to increase attendance rates and the percentage of students referred to the Truancy Intervention Partnership Program (TIPP) and decrease the number of students referred to Truancy Court. Ninety percent of students in delinquency court have a bad attendance record, Third Circuit Judge Julian Collins. Theres an incredible correlation between kids in delinquency court and low atten-dance. Assistant Third Circuit State Attorney Wendy Kwon believes the program has been effective, and needs to continue to educate parents on the importance of get-ting their children to school. The best way to deter children from a life of crime is an education, she said. Already the program has a banner at every school, advising parents: When your child misses school, he/she misses out. Elementary schools and second-ary schools will compete throughout the school year in several areas, including best attendance rate, l owest truancy rate, greatest increase in attendance a nd greatest decrease in truancy. The winning schools will be awarded $250 to spend at the discretion of leadership and a permanent plaque honoring its achievement. Students who achieve perfect atten-dance and students who increase attendance by 10 perfect points over the current school year will be eligible for a grand prize drawing of a flat screen television, two for each group. Within Columbia County, the attendance rate sits at 96 percent and the truancy rate at 18 percent. Truancy rate calculates the percent of students who miss 21 days or more, including tardies. The lowest attendance rates and therefore the highest truancy rate occurs at Challenge Learning Center off Labonte Lane. It has a truancy rate of 70 percent. Westside Elementary, the lowest truancy rate in the county, has a 5 percent rate. Hatcher kicked off his Every Child, Every Seat, Every Day program this month, which also happens to be the first-ever Attendance Awareness Month. The month works as a national and state initiative to pro-mote better policy and practice for school attendance. Its motto: Advancing Student Success by Reducing Chronic Absence. The district tries to reduce chronic absence, a term they define as students who miss 10 percent or more of their schooldays. Chronic absence includes tardies, excused absences and unexcused absences. Even if the absence is excused, the students are still missing valuable instruction time, Hatcher said. For every day of school missed, it takes two or more days for a student to catch up, states information released by the CCSD. Hatcher is also the director of adult education and charter schools.

Im excited to be a part of this service in Lake City, he said. Ive never been to Lake City before and thats one of the things that Im really proud of the fact that as SBC president Ive gone a lot of places that SBC presidents have never been before. Its exciting to be here in Lake City and Im proud to be a part of these Great Thursday services. Before the service Luter, accompanied by First Baptist Church pas-tor Robert Bass, was intro-duced to several congre-gation members and took time to introduce himself to many people entering the sanctuary for the service before delivering his ser-mon on encouragement. I understand that a lot of us as believers go through a lot of things in life and some of those things can get the best of us, he said. So, I shared words of encouragement tonight to those in the sanctuary or those who may see the ser-mon at another time, to let them know that no matter how difficult times maybe in life that if God brings you to it, Hell bring you through it. LUTER: A message of encouragement for Lake City Continued From Page 1A By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comParents and teachers of Westside Elementary School invite commu-nity families to join in the Falling for Education festival fundraiser on Saturday. The objective of Falling for Education is to raise money for the Parent-Teacher Organization events and additional school supplies for students, according to kindergarten teacher Laurie Benefield. Were trying to do something different so parents and students dont have to go out to beg for money, she said. This is our only fundraiser to earn money for the school this year. Located at Westside Elementary, the festival will feature six bounce houses, a rock wall, dunking booth and various other booths set up by local government and community organizations. Notable dunkables include Superintendent Terry Huddleston, Assistant Superintendent Lex Carswell, school board chairman Steve Nelson and various staff from Westside. Last years festival accumulated over $10,000 in donations that went toward the purchase of new com-puters and different PTO events, Benefield said. She hopes the event will raise $12-13,000 this year. Were trying to offer something fun for the children, Benefield said. Its a family event and we always want to have family events the whole family can enjoy. Every school in the county has a PTO that raises money, and this is how weve chosen to raise our money. Children ages 3-12 may purchase $10 wristbands at the door, allowing for unlimited booth and entertain-ment participation. An additional $5 will get attendees a meal deal con-sisting of a hamburger, hot dog or sausage dog combined with a bag of chips and soft drink. Parents are admitted free. The event is open to all members of the community.

B oy, give young people a new way to interact socially, and its doom and gloom from the rest of us. As writer Tom Standage reminded us earlier this year in The New York Times, in the 17th century, for instance, many pillars of society complained about a novelty, the cof-feehouse, where people were begin-ning to gather and exchange ideas with folks outside of their typical social spheres. There was special worry that this would corrupt the young. A lawyer in Cambridge, England, echoed many of his peers when he bemoaned this new social outlet and the vast Loss of Time grown out of a pure Novelty. For who can apply close to a Subject with his Head full of the Din of a Coffee-house? Flash forward to a recent visit by comedian Louis C.K. to late-night host Conan OBrien, where C.K. pronounced himself unwilling to let his kids have cellphones, a stand that has won huge applause across every kind of media. Cellphones are isolating, he believes, toxic, theyve created a situation where kids in par-ticular dont learn to interact as they should with others, and on it goes. Yep. Sounds familiar.In any event, you know that guilty parents everywhere said another uh-oh. And you can almost hear the self-satisfied ones saying, We dont allow our kids cellphones, either! Were special! By the way, Im all for reasonable restrictions, whether it be age or just prying the devices out of clutched hands during meal and family times and at bedtime. But mostly, I think smartphones are like any other tool. They can be used for good -or not. And guess what? If American young people are becoming more isolated, its not because of some complicated device they walk around with. Anyway, its no surprise to me that a study commissioned by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, part of the respected Pew Research Center in Washington, revealed some interesting things about a nation of so-called isolated Internet and cellphone users. The study, released in 2011, showed that when it comes to social-networking sites, with Facebook being the largest, Social-networking sites are increasingly used to keep up with close social ties; Facebook users are much more politically engaged than most people; Facebook users get more social support than other people; and they have more close relation-ships and are even more generally trusting of people than are others who are demographically similar but not on Facebook. And a study released by the same Pew unit in 2009 revealed that, on many key indexes, active Internet users, cellphone users and bloggers are more likely to have larger social networks of people they consider their closest and most significant confidants and more likely to be involved in local voluntary organi-zations and to have more racially diverse social networks than are demographically similar nonusers. The lead researcher of that 2009 study, Dr. Keith N. Hampton of the University of Pennsylvania, said it was a mistake to believe that Internet use and mobile phones plunge people into a spiral of isola-tion. Look, weve heard tragic stories of suicides, idiotic stories of kids (and adults) sexting or otherwise compromising themselves online. And dont even get me started on how the ease of Internet porn is pernicious. Understood.Im just saying that as a mom I know my children are quite capable of eye-rolling at me or ignoring me even without regular smartphone use. So by all means, lets be wise about our kids and their social-networking activities, lets make sure we have their passwords, talk to them about the permanency of everything that goes online and have them drop the phones in the basket before dinner and bed. I fully admit that Ive got some things to work on there with my kids! But rather than fearing smart-phones and their toxicity, I prefer to spend my energy trying to teach good manners, self-respect and respect for others, and that my chil-dren can enjoy and master, not be mastered by, that device in the palm of their hands.N aturally, the American focus on Iranian president Hassan Rouhanis speech to the United Nations this week was on his assurances that his nations hugely con-troversial nuclear development program has nothing but peaceful purposes. The problem, of course, is that Iranian leaders have been saying that for years, and international nuclear experts not to mention the White House through several presidencies have never been convinced. Thus, there are severe economic sanc-tions that are crippling Irans economy, and that fact may have induced the change in tone in Tehran. Rouhanis bellicose predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was so antagonistic to Irans critics that, no matter how loudly he protested to the con-trary, he only increased the global suspicions that Iran was working diligently to arm itself with nuclear weapons and thus further destabilize the vulnerable political and military situation in the Middle East. But Rouhanis U.N. appearance had more to it than the question of Irans nuclear intentions, as important as that question may be. Although there are many who may not yet be ready to believe he truly is a moderate leader, he did take steps to suggest he is a fresh voice with a message of optimism. He was even accompanied to New York by Irans only Jewish member of parliament, Siamak Moreh Sedgh. And in a significant interview after his speech, Rouhani made it clear that his views of the Holocaust are totally the opposite of those expressed by Ahmadinejad, who often called it a myth propa-gated by the West. Ive said before that I am not a historian, and when it comes to speaking of the dimensions of the Holocaust, it is the historians that should reflect, Rouhani told CNNs Christiane Amanpour. But, in general, I can tell you that any crime that happens in history against humanity, including the crime the Nazis created towards the Jews as well as non-Jews, is reprehensible and condemnable. Whatever criminality they committed against the Jews, we con-demn. But if those sentiments were designed to mollify Irans foes, they did little to diminish the hostility toward Iran from Israels prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who, referring to Rouhanis statement about Irans nuclear intentions, called it a cynical public relations ploy. In fact, the Israeli delegation walked out during Rouhanis speech, and Israels minister for strate-gic and intelligence affairs, Yuval Steinitz, told The Associated Press that the Iranian leaders rhetoric was a game of deception. But after so many years of Ahmadinejads belligerence, even a change in tone can be considered prog-ress. The United States should encourage Rouhani to continue his moderate approach, while always remembering Irans actions, including its support of terrorists and Syria, are what matter.

N o matter how success-ful, popular, outgoing, involved, or connected with others you are, youll still find people who just dont like you! Why? Maybe they want to feel superior to you, judge you, are jealous of you, just dont like your looks, or maybe theyre just angry people with their own problems. Even the most friendly, wonderful people, movie and television stars, sports heroes even the president have lots of people who dislike them. In fact, its been said that the more well-known you are, the more enemies you have! Whats the problem with that? When someone doesnt like you, they may want you to feel bad, they may find fault with what you do, they may want to hurt you, or may want you to fail. They may throw criticism at you, or throw obstacles in your way. They may want to argue with you, prove you wrong, or just to hurt you. You probably want to know, What can I do? Some folks respond by confronting their tor-mentor. You may feel like arguing, or fighting back. Some resort to gossiping about them to others, or expressing anger. Some just try to avoid the enemy, or just develop a dislike or hatred, and hold onto a long-term resentment. Now, whats wrong with that? When we lower ourselves to their level, we can bring out the worst in both of us. We can be left feel-ing negative emotions like anger, frustration, and loss of our energy and self-esteem. We may feel grief, sadness, or even guilt over our poor handling of the situation. As it turns out, when we hold onto bad feelings, resentments, or a grudge, it actually hurts us more than it hurts them! It can stand in the way of our own well-being and happiness. Whats a better way? Probably the best way to deal with your enemy is to find a way to do something positive, and have good feelings about action you decide to take. Even the Bible says, Love your enemies. Rather than letting yourself become a part of their negativity, choose happiness, success, and enjoyment of your life. Focus on the doughnut, not upon the hole. Take time to decide what you want to have in your own life that will bring you the joy, success, personal growth, self-fulfillment, and happiness that you deserve. Your life will end up being the better for it. And strangely enough, they may stop playing their hateful games of finding ways to hurt you. If attacking your doesnt work for them, they are likely to give up that strategy, and move on to find better and more positive ways to run their own lives. It can be a win/win situation for both par-ties. Dont keep holding onto resentments. Life is too short!

By TONY BRITT email@example.com Its hard to predict what the world will be like in 25 years, but people living in Columbia County 25 years from now will know how people in 2013 lived by looking through preserved pieces of history. A time capsule, set to be opened in 25 years, will be placed in the Columbia County public library main branch build ing. Wednesday afternoon a Time Capsule Committee met for close to an hour at the main public library meeting room to determine what items will be placed in the time capsule, where it would be placed and when it would be opened. Debbie Paulson, Columbia County Public Library Director, said the meet ing was a follow-up meeting to the initial Time Capsule Committee meeting which was held in 2012. Paulson said the time capsule program is through the Florida Department of State. Their initiative in 2013 was Viva Florida 500 to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the discovery of La Florida by Ponce De Leon, she said. So each county library in Florida received a time capsule and weve had a lot of programs throughout the year celebrating Florida History. The time capsule is a silver cylinder, five inches in diameter and about 3.5 feet in length. A ceremony has been scheduled for 2 p.m. Dec. 7 at the main branch library to place the time capsule, which will be fol lowed by a reception. The time capsule wont be buried, but most likely placed in a locked library display case or some other secured area. Paulson explained why the committee choose to open the time capsule in 25 years. I think people on the committee felt that 50 years was really too long and 100 years was way too long, she said. In 50 years maybe something would get lost or something may happen with the building, where as 25 years seemed a more reason able amount of time. Paulson said the committee also decid ed that several items suggested for inclu sion in the time capsule would last better for 25 years rather than a longer period of time. Each of the local libraries collected suggestions on surveys from the pub lic about possible items that could be included in the time capsule. Paulson said most of the suggestions were about including iPhones, Kindles or other forms of todays technology. She said other suggestions included giving a list that provided information about the cost of selected items, what clothing peo ple wear now and what Columbia County and the Lake City area looked like. I think its fun to see what was rep resentative of things, she said of the importance of a time capsule. This is the first time Ive been involved with a time capsule, but I think when people open time capsules its always a lot of fun to see what was representative of that time and how much things have changed or have not changed. I think its just a good idea to take a photograph of a certain time in history and then see what it is 25-50 years later. Paulson said there were a variety of celebrations in observance of the anni versary as part of Viva Florida 500. The celebration also included a kickoff for the librarys community read pro gram. We received two grants to purchase copies of A Land Remembered by Patrick Smith, Paulson said. Were encourag ing people to read the book in October and early November. The library has two discussion on the book programs set for October. Smiths son, Rick Smith, will also present a multi media presentation about his father Nov. 19 at the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex Auditorium. Paulson said the public library has part nered with the school district for the pre sentation and the library has bought stu dent editions of the book with an Altrusa International grant. A set of the books has been placed in local schools. Were encouraging local book clubs to get involved and anybody who likes to read the book, Paulson said. Time capsule to be buried in December
P aul expressed his thanks to God for what had happened to the Colossians. After hearing the message of God and being obedient to the commands of God set forth for becoming a Christian, God did several things for the Colossians which they could not do for themselves. Let us meditate upon just one of those things, namely, God delivered them from the domain of darkness, and transferred [them] to the kingdom of His beloved Son (Colossians 1:13). Paul uses two words that describe what God has done. One is delivered and the other is transferred. This dual action by God informs us of what is the complete action by God when we first became a Christian. The word delivered in this context means to release or save. After our obedience to God, He released us or saved us from the domain of darkness. In this context the word domain has the meaning of the territory governed by some ruler, in this case darkness. The Biblical context of the word darkness has the idea of the opposite of light, which signifies an illu-mination of how and where one is to walk or conduct their lives. So Paul is saying that God has saved us from the territory of darkness. Christians have been released from the consequences of not living Godly lives or lives according to the light. The word transferred has the meaning of being conveyed or moved from one place to anoth-er. In this context God moved or transferred a person from the domain of darkness to the kingdom of His beloved Son. God did this for not only the Colossians, but for every person who has obeyed God commands to become a Christian. A human being cannot make this transfer but rather it is something which God does for a person because of their obedience. A kingdom is a state or domain ruled by a king in this case, Jesus. It is interesting to note that a kingdom has a domain just like darkness has a domain. Another thing which should be noted about this king-dom of His beloved Son is that it was in existence before Paul wrote the book of Colossians. Another thing that should be noted about this kingdom is that because God has transferred us into this kingdom, we have been atoned for our failure to obey the commands of God. It means that all the penalties for all the transgressions of Gods law which we have commit-ted have been paid. We have received the forgiveness of [our] sins. We are no longer accountable for those actions. This passage tells us that we are going to be in one domain or another. We are going to be liv-ing in one kingdom or another. God is the only one who can move us from one domain or kingdom to another. However, His actions are dependent upon our actions. We must act first before He can act. Even though God very much wants to make this transfer, He is constrained by our actions. As a member of this kingdom of Gods beloved Son, we have certain privileges. There are certain benefits which the citizens of this kingdom enjoy. Because God has transferred us into this kingdom, it means that a human being can only be a member of this kingdom if God makes the transfer. Has God transferred you? Are you a member of the kingdom of His beloved Son? FAITH & VALUES BIBLICAL MEDITATION Carlton McPeakcarlton_mc@msn.com Friday & Saturday, September 27 & 28, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A 6AF&V Two men, two ways, two destinies Part 1A t the top of Psalms one, my Bible has as the theme Two Men, Two Ways, Two Destinies. Psalms one has only six verses. The first three are the ben-efits of the Godly man; the last three are the rewards for the ungodly. Today we will deal with the blessings of the first three verses. Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper(NKJV). Notice first what the blessed man does not do. He does not walk in the counsel of the ungod-ly (counsel means advice). The counsel of the ungodly is more prevalent today than the counsel of the Godly. There is ungodly counsel all over televi-sion, all over the entertainment world, on the radio, in all the magazines you see at all the check-out lines at grocery store; even in many of our schools, including religious institutions where the Gospel is not taught. Ungodly counsel says we should not have the Bible and prayer in schools. It says no God in government. It says kill mil-lions by abortion. It says same sex marriage is ok. It says that alcohol and drugs are ok. Ungodly counsel says there is no standard of right and wrong. The blessed man does not listen to such counsel. II Corinthians 6:17 says Therefore,Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you The second thing the blessed man does not do is stand in the path (or way) of sinners. If one listens to the counsel of the ungodly, soon he will act like they do. Maybe just a little at first, but it will get worse. The third thing he does not do is sit in the seat of the scorn-ful. Scornful means to laugh at or make fun of. These are those who make fun of and downplay God. They dont want to be any part of God and His word. The blessed man will delight in the law of the Lord. He will take great pleasure in Gods cov-enant with man. He will walk in the light of his Lord and Savior. For He is the light. His desire will be daily to let the fruit of the spirit show in his walk (Galatians 5:22-26). He will meditate on Gods word day and night; the most important thing in his life will be to study and to worship God. Verse three speaks for its self. Whatever he does shall pros-per. Just think, whatever the blessed man does will prosper. This is a promise of God. No matter what the world says, it will happen. So today, if we want to prosper, if we want to see our families prosper, our churches prosper, our state prosper, our country prosper, we must do what God says.

LAKE CITY REPORTER FAITH & VALUES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 & 28, 2013 7A 7AReligion With Naomi, on the road to Bethlehem Then Naomi said to her two daughtersin-law, Go back, each of you, to your moth ers home. May the Lord show kindness to you, as you have shown to your dead and to me. May the Lord grant that each of you will find rest in the home of another husband. But Ruth replied, Dont urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me. (Ruth 1:8-9,16-17) W hat are we to do when those we love leave us behind? This week we join Naomi on the road to Bethlehem in Judah with her two Moabite daughters-in-law because she is left without her two sons and her husband. Upon hearing that the Lord had ended the famine and was once again providing food for His people, the three women leave Moab in the rear view mirroruntil Naomi reasoned that it would be best for these two young women, Orpah and Ruth, to return and find new husbands among their people. Both Orpah and Ruth wept and offered to stay with Naomi, but Orpah finally kissed Naomi goodby, while Ruth clung to her. What in the world would make a young wid owed woman leave her home, her people, and her country to go with her mother-in-law to a foreign land? So glad you asked because I would like to suggest a possible scenario: We have already discovered that Moab was an enemy to Gods people, Israel, but a little further investigation reveals a distant family connection. Genesis 19:3038 records the history of the Moabite and Ammonite people as the result of an incestuous relationship between Abrahams nephew Lot and Lots two daughters. According to this passage, the two daughters, (whose names are not recorded) were driven by desperation to preserve their family line. While this reasoning seems appalling, and the Bible in no way condones incest, remember that these girls were raised in Sodom, a city so wicked that God destroyed it by fire. Take note: we can not hang out with sin and expect that it will not affect our lives or influence our children. Throughout the Old Testament, the Bible continues to men tion the Moabite people, and in 1 Kings 11:1-7, Chemosh is named as the detest able god of Moab. Further study into 2 Kings 3:26-27 reveals that Chemosh was worshipped with human blood as the King of Moab took his firstborn son, who was to succeed him as king, and offered him as a sacrifice in an attempt to gain victory over the Israelites in battle. Back to Ruth and Naomi from Ruths statement, your people will be my people and your God my God, we can surmise that while living in Moab, Naomi had not abandoned the God of Israel in order to worship Chemosh, the god of Moab. No doubt Ruth had observed and experi enced the difference between serving a god that would require your childs life as a sacrifice and worshipping the God of Israel. God honors human life, so much that when the debt for our sin required death, He went to the cross Himself to make that payment. As believers, that gift of love, rightly cherished and celebrated, will naturally create a desire among those who have been living in Moab to embrace our people as theirs and our God as their own!

A pink letter in the sand By JACK EXUM JR. I t is 9 a.m. January 17, 1991, in Germany and the soldiers of the 12th Engineer Battalion prepared to depart for war. Kira, a nine-year old girl holding a pink piece of construction paper, along with her third grade class from Dexheim Elementary School, was looking for her father, to give him her note, before he left to go to war. There were nearly a thousand soldiers each dressed like the other. She was unable to find her daddy so she stopped in front of a soldier and handed him the folded piece of pink construction paper. When she finally found her father, she cried because she didnt have the note to give him Its OK, sweetheart her father said, I just need your love. Shortly after that the soldiers boarded buses bound for the airport with Saudi Arabia as their destination. For 15 days the soldiers prepared for movement north across the Saudi Arabia border into Iraq. Hand to hand combat training, letter writing, ammunition uploads, mail call, weapons checks, radio checks, equipment checks the 16th day is the day that will stand out forever in the mind of SSG Richard K. Nesbitt, Jr. It was February 2, 1991 and the 12th Engineer Battalion was breaking camp, as they prepared to move to the Line of Departure, their own Line in the Sand. Sergeant Nesbitt had just picked up a trash bag to toss it up on a truck, when he looked down at where it had been lying. Folded up neatly, and firmly pressed into the sand was a four inch square piece of pink construction paper. To this day he doesnt know why he would take notice of a paper in the desert except to pick it up and throw it away. Prepared for war, he took a moment and sat down on a pile of sandbags, picked up the paper and unfolded it once. Printed across the top of the pink paper, above two apple trees drawn in crayon, were two words: Dear Soldier. He thought, This must be from one of those elementary kids back in Germany. Unfolding it a second time SSG Nesbitt read I wish you good (actually spelled goob) luck. Be careful down there. Hurry up and come back! It was the final word that made him cry. The card was signed, Love, Kira. With tears in his eyes SSG Nesbitt folded up the piece of paper, slipped it into a zip lock bag and put it in his shirt pocket next to his heart, and set his mind on carrying it home to Kira, his little girl. His mind went back to that 17th day of January. He pictured his daughter looking for him because she wanted to give him her special note and giving it to a soldier hoping it would make its way to him. The identity of that soldier still remains a mys tery, but the letter, along with a picture of a third grade girl and her father, has been framed and continues to hang in very prominent place above her fathers desk. God has been planning for all eternity just to give you a message written in the blood of His own Son, I love you, Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28). Frame the message in your heart, and come to Jesus. CHURCH CALENDAR Submit Church Calendar announcements by mail or drop off at the Reporter office located at 180 E.

Men-only Mormon conference session to be broadcast Oct. 5 Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY A Mormon church conference session next month thats pre viously been limited to men will be broad cast live for all to watch for the first time. But a group of LDS women advocating for complete gender equality say thats still not enough. They say theyll still carry out their plan to stand outside and ask to be let in the Oct. 5 session. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints announced Tuesday that the priesthood session during the first day of the conference in Salt Lake City would be available on channels and online, includ ing LDS.org, the Mormon Channel and BYUtv. The conference is Oct. 5-6. Church officials say the move aims to make the meeting, held during the twiceyearly general conference, accessible to members around the globe. The session is reserved for members of the priesthood, which includes most males in the church 12 years old and older. Session broadcasts were previously password-protected. Ordain Women, a group of Mormon women that formed earlier this year to push for gender equality and ordination of women, said in a news release that they are pleased with the move toward openness, but they still want to attend the session. The women requested tickets to the session, but were denied by church leaders. This is an important step toward a future where Mormon women will partici pate side-by-side with our brothers in all areas of church leadership and life, said Kate Kelly, one of the groups founders, in a statement. But, she added they will still be in line demanding to get in the session to draw attention to the exclusion of women from the session. We are demonstrating our faith by stand ing at the door and knocking, Kelly said. Women can hold many leadership posi tions in the Mormon church, but they arent allowed to be bishops of congrega tions or presidents of stakes. Stakes are made up of up to a dozen congregations, known as wards. The churchs highest leaders, called the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, are also all men. Efforts by Mormons to draw attention to what they perceive as gender inequal ity within the Mormon church, which has 14 million members worldwide, have intensified this year. In April, a woman led the closing prayer during the morning session of the spring general conference. That marked the first time thats happened in the events 183year history.

Tigers take show on road BRENT KUYKENDALL /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Lonnie Underwood breaks into the open field against Gainesville High earlier this season. Co lumbia travels to Englewood High in Jacksonville at 7 p.m. tonight. COLUMBIA HIGH SWIM TEAM Columbia travels to Englewood tonightBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High head coach Brian Allen called tonights game another chance to suit up and prove what the 2013 Tigers foot-ball team is all about. Sure, the opponent might not be up to the caliber of foes the Tigers have met earlier this year, Englewood High is a district opponent, which makes it even more important for the Tigers. The Rams (1-3, 0-1 District 4-6A) got off to a hot start on the year by defeating Paxon, 21-0, on the road before falling in their next three contest. Atlantic Coast (190), Baldwin (25-21) and Ed White (48-0) have all knocked off the Rams since. Columbia enters the game with an undefeated 4-0 mark, but Allen said ear-lier this week the key to this season for the Tigers will not be buying into how good they are perceived to be around the state. Columbia is currently ranked No. 2 in 6A behind only Miami Central, which has one loss on the sea-son. Still, only receiving one first-place votes com-pared to Miami Centrals 16 doesnt bother the Tigers. Instead, the Tigers are focused on going 5-0 on the season and that means being prepared for the Rams. They run a 4-3 defense, running a 40 front Allen said. Theyre a Cover 3 team. If youre playing a 4-3 group, you can get into different spread looks and theyll have a tough time adjusting without being able to drop back a defen-sive end into coverage. Traditionally, teams that throw the ball have an advantage against teams in a 4-3 look, but Columbia likes to run the ball. Still, Allen believes there will be matchups available for the Tigers to exploit. We can get some things going against a 4-3 look on defense, Allen said. Offensively, the Rams are going to throw a bag of tricks at the Tigers as they look to knock off the states second-ranked team. Allen said that their offense will have multiple styles. They have options, traps, Allen said. Theyre throwing out of three step and five step. Its a little bit of the same as we what we saw a week ago. But Allens biggest worry isnt what the Rams will show them, but how the Tigers operate their sys-tem. The biggest thing is coming out and executing, Allen said. On the injury front, Columbia will still be without Trey Marshall at safety and quarterback Jake Thomas. It was also announce that Tyrone Sands will miss the rest of the season. Trey is getting better, Allen said. Jake is pro-gressing. Hes still two or three more weeks away from being able to partici-pate. Tyrone has an ACL and hes done for the year. Columbia will kick off against the Rams at 7 p.m. tonight in Jacksonville.JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterBurns back in actionColumbia High Swim Teams two-time defending state cham-pion Hannah Burns practices her butterfly stroke before th e teams match against Ridgeview and Baker County high schools at the Columbia Aquatic Complex on Thursday.

The Lady Tigers fell in four sets 29-27, 25-18, 19-25 and 25-19 to the Lady Raiders. We fought hard and we made some good plays, Columbia head coach Rebecca Golden said. There were moments when we were able to string a few points togeth-er. We just couldnt find a way to win in the end. Jara Courson led the team with seven kills in the match, while Meghan Yates added five kills against the Lady Raiders. Hanna Baker led the Lady Tigers in assists with 17 in the match. Annie Milton led Columbia with three blocks and Charlee Watson led the Lady Tigers with five digs. Theyre a very good team thats well matched with Gainesville, but they lost to Middleburg, Golden said. The Lady Tigers will travel to Gainesville for the Oak Hall tournament beginning at 3 p.m. today against Eastside High. Were excited to get back out there after tonight and play a lot of games this weekend, Golden said. The Lady Tigers will hold their Dig Pink game against Fort White High at 6 p.m. on Monday before traveling to Middleburg at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday. Columbia drops district game against Raiders.

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 & 28, 2013 3B3BSPORTS PAUL BUCHANAN /Special to the ReporterJernigan, Noles travel to Boston CollegeFormer Columbia High defensive tackle walks off the field during a timeout against Bethune Cookman University in Florida States 54-6 win o n Sept. 21 in Tallahassee. Florida State will travel to take on Atlantic Coast Conference foe Bo ston College at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. Florida State is currently ranked No. 8 in the Associated Press poll with a 3-0 record and 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference record. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFlorida quarterback Tyler Murphy is stalked by Tenness ees Corey Miller while attempting to score a touchdown during a game on Saturday. Starting qu arterback Jeff Driskel is out for the year due to a broken right tibia. Florida beat Tennessee 31-17. Florida travels to Kentucky at 7 p.m. on Saturday.No. 20 Florida relying on stout defense againBy MARK LONG Associated PressGAINESVILLE Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley wore a red sweat shirt with a gold football helmet on the front and the word BEST underneath it on campus Tuesday. Easley bought it in Miami because he liked the colors, but Florida will be without Easley the rest of the year. It seemed somewhat appropriate, however, to throw on this week. The 20th-ranked Gators lead the Southeastern Conference in just about every major defen-sive category. Florida (2-1, 1-0 SEC) tops the league in scoring (14.7 points a game), rushing (55.3 yards a game) and passing (157 yards a game). Coach Will Muschamps unit didnt allow Toledo, No. 15 Miami or Tennessee to gain more than 220 yards and has been at its best on third down (19 percent). Now, with quarterback Jeff Driskel out for the sea-son with a broken right leg, the Gators might rely on the defense more than ever before. Were not afraid to punt the ball, offensive coor-dinator Brent Pease said Tuesday, summing up the state of the team. The defense has played well enough for Florida to be unbeaten. The Gators held the Hurricanes to 212 yards, including 76 over the final 11 possessions, but lost 21-16 thanks to five turnovers. Nonetheless, the Gators believe they can play bet-ter. They want perfection, which they define as a shut-out and three turnovers. They havent witnessed it in more than a year a lengthy wait they would like to see end Saturday at Kentucky (1-2). Those guys have got to continue to play well, Muschamp said. Youre only as good as your next game. Thats our mentality and weve got to understand that whatever weve done to this point really doesnt matter. The Gators rank second in the nation in total defense, up three spots from where they finished last season. Its been somewhat surprising considering Florida lost seven defensive start-ers after 2012. But the team has experienced little, if any, growing pains while replacing defensive linemen Sharrif Floyd, Omar Hunter and Lerentee McCray, line-backers Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins and safeties Matt Elam and Josh Evans. Muschamp expressed concern before the season about how stout the defense would be up the middle. But Easley had wreaked havoc on offensive lines. Middle linebacker Antonio Morrison has emerged as the teams top tackler despite being suspended for the season opener. And former cornerbacks Cody Riggs and Jaylen Watkins have played well at safety. Several youngsters have made significant impacts, too. Sophomore defensive end Dante Fowler was named the SEC defensive player of the week after record-ing three tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and a sack against Tennessee. And freshman cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III inter-cepted two passes in his first two games and broke up three more against the Volunteers. We know we can do better, Fowler said. We take defense really seri-ously especially after the year that we had last year. I know a lot of people had some doubts going into this year, so we wanted to play even harder and be better than last year. We wanted to be the best defense in the nation. So far, the Gators are getting rave reviews. Tennessee coach Butch Jones said Floridas defen-sive front dominated the line of scrimmage in Saturdays 31-17 loss in Gainesville and added that the Gators have one of the best defensive fronts in the country. Kentuckys Mark Stoops was equally impressed. Theyre very disruptive, very dominant up front, and their secondary is fabulous, said Stoops, who got an up-close look at the Gators as Florida States defensive coordinator the last three years. They cover the heck out of you. Floridas last perfect game on defense was a 38-0 shutout against the Wildcats last season. The Gators have come close to repeating the feat a few times since. But no mat-ter how well they play on defense, Muschamp never seems satisfied. No. 6 LSU, No. 9 Georgia meet in crucial showdownAssociated PressHere are five things to watch in the Southeastern Conference during Week 5 of games: GAME OF THE WEEK: No. 6 LSU at No. 9 Georgia. There will be plenty of intrigue when LSU travels to face Georgia. There could also be plenty of touch-downs. LSUs new offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has been the architect of an offense thats averaging more than 43 points per game. Georgia isnt far behind the Tigers and aver-ages 40.3 points per game. Georgia coach Mark Richt on LSU: Theyre not going to try to trick you. Theyre just going to line up and ball you. BEST MATCHUP: Mississippis running game against Alabamas defense: The 21st-ranked Rebels have moved the ball on the ground with ease so far this season, averaging 250 yards rushing per game. No. 1 Alabama is in the middle of the SEC pack in rushing defense. The Rebels dont lack confidence heading into Tuscaloosa. I think we can put points on them. I think we can put points on anybody. Weve just go to show up and play, Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace said. INSIDE THE NUMBERS: Missouri has picked off three passes in each of its first three games, the first time since 1980 that the Tigers have collected three intercep-tions each in three straight games. Missouri already has exceeded its 2012 sea-son total of seven intercep-tions. ... Florida leads all FBS teams in run defense (55.3), third-down conver-sion percentage defense (18.9) and first downs allowed per game (11.3). The Gators are second nationally in total defense (212.3). LONG SHOT : UCF is savoring the opportunity to host an SEC opponent in a nationally televised game as it welcomes No. 12 South Carolina to town for a noon kickoff. The unbeaten Knights had an off week to prepare for this showdown after winning 34-31 at Penn State in their last game. UCF, a seven-point underdog, will be playing in front of its first home sellout crowd since 2011. South Carolina must contain Storm Johnson, who already has run for six touchdowns this season. We have got to treat them like they are in the SEC, South Carolina linebacker Marcquis Roberts said. IMPACT PLAYER : LSU QB Zach Mettenberger: This week marks Mettenbergers return to Georgia, where he began his college career before legal troubles caused him to get dismissed from the team. Mettenberger went from Butler (Kan.) Community College to LSU, where he has emerged as one of the SECs most improved players this season. Mettenbergers mother still works as an administrative assistant in Georgias football office, though Bulldogs coach Mark Richt gave her this week off.
4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 & 28, 2013 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 4BSPORTSLSU-UGA highlight week to reshape rankings By RALPH D. RUSSOAssociated PressFinally, a college football weekend with real poten-tial to reshape the rankings and shake up the national championship race. The fifth Saturday of the season features four games matching ranked teams, highlighted by No. 6 LSU at No. 9 Georgia. Eight more ranked teams play road games of varying degrees of difficulty. Last weekends schedule produced mostly blowouts, and when it was over it was as if it never happened. The top 14 teams in the AP Top 25 held their spots from the week before, and no team moved up more than one place. This Saturday could end with a couple of teams say-ing goodbye to their nation-al championship hopes, and maybe a few new teams being taken more seriously as contenders. Georgia wraps up the toughest September sched-ule in the country with its third game against a top-10 opponent. The Bulldogs (2-1) split with Clemson and South Carolina to start the season and now face an LSU team that is yet again looking like a Southeastern Conference heavyweight, though the Tigers are getting it done a little differently this sea-son. For the first time in a few years, LSUs passing game is a strength instead of a question mark. Zach Mettenberger has the sixth best passer rating in the country. Theres a big ceiling on him, Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said of Mettenberger, who originally attended Georgia but was dismissed from the team when, as a redshirt freshman, he got into legal trouble over his treatment of a woman at a bar. LSU receivers Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry are making a case for being the top tandem not just in the SEC but in the nation. That should lead to another increasingly com-mon occurrence: high-scor-ing SEC games. Georgia, with quarterback Aaron Murray and tail-back Todd Gurley leading the way, is seventh in the nation in yards per play at 7.83. LSU is ninth at 7.53. The other big game in the SEC takes place in Tuscaloosa, where No. 1 Alabama faces No. 21 Mississippi. The Rebels spread it out and play fast like Texas A&M, but Ole Miss pres-ents very different chal-lenges. Even though the offenses may be similar, the philosophies are not the same, Tide coach Nick Saban said. No. 4 Ohio State faces its first stiff test of the sea-son when No. 24 Wisconsin comes to Ohio Stadium on Saturday night. No. 22 Notre Dame is an underdog for the sec-ond straight season to Oklahoma. Of course, that didnt stop the Fighting Irish from beating the Sooners in Norman last year. Any hope the Irish have of getting back to the BCS title game would be dashed with a sec-ond loss. The picks : MAIN EVENT No. 6 LSU (plus 3) at No. 9 Georgia Les Miles and Mark Richt have split four meeting between Tigers and Dawgs ... LSU 35-28. MARQUEE MATCHUPS No. 21 Mississippi (plus 16) at No. 1 Alabama Tide has won nine straight against Rebels ... ALABAMA 30-17.

No. 14 Oklahoma (minus 3) at No. 22 Notre Dame Irish averaging only 114 yards rushing ... OKLAHOMA 24-17. UPSET SPECIAL No. 12 South Carolina (minus 7) at UCF Blake Bortles might be best QB Gamecocks face this season, and their pass defense has been shaky ... UCF 31-24. BEST BET Arizona (plus 9) at No. 16 Washington ... WASHINGTON 45-24. Wildcats will gladly play at Huskies furious pace, which is good news for UW ....WASHINGTON 45-24.

Cougars are improved and Cardinal will be with-out top OG David Yankey (family issues) for full game and star DB Ed Reynolds (targeting ejection) for first half. Razorbacks might not be so plucky if QB Brandon Allen (shoulder) misses sec-ond straight game. Maybe a change at quarterback for Gators gives Wildcats chance to snap 26-game los-ing streak in series?

FILELake City Hunnies Lethal Dose (center) takes out the Bra denton Bombers jammer in a derby match last year in Lake City.ACR Hunnies return to Lake City on Oct. 5From staff reportsWith only 2 home bouts left in the 2013 season, the ACR Hunnies, a flat track roller derby team, will be going head-to-head with the First Coast Fatales from Jacksonville on Oct. 5, at the Skating Palace in Lake City. The doors open at 5:30 p.m. Roller Derby has come back as a true hard-hitting, skill based, athletic sport that inspires woman to be who-ever they want to be on and off the track, Vice President of the ACR Hunnies Sara Ivines, better known as Salma Hectic, said. The national roller derby revival began in 2001 in Austin, Texas, and has been gaining momentum. The new generation of derby pays homage to the theatri-cal traditions of the past, but plays by bona fide rules, with penalties, referees and champions. Modern day roller derby is a fast-paced, hard-hitting, explosive sport that combines the spirit of creator Leo Seltzers vision with genuine athleticism. Since 2001, there are more than 1,150 roller derby leagues in operation world-wide. Nearly every state in the United States has one or more roller derby leagues representing them on a national level. Bout tickets are $8 in advance through www.acrderby.com, the Skating Palace or from an ACR Hunnies or Stingers skater. Tickets are $10 at the door and children 10 and under are free. Exclusive seats are avail-able on the skating floor for a $2 upgrade at the door. With prizes donated from local Lake City businesses, raffles tickets will be avail-able for purchase to benefit the Chances for Children Advocacy Center. The chil-drens Advocacy Center of the 3rd Circuit is dedicated to reducing trauma to victims of child abuse and their non-offending family members through intervention, pre-vention and education. ACR is proud to exhibit our newest team, the ACR Stingers! The Stingers is a north central Florida junior derby team, welcoming girls and boys age 8-17 as skaters and referees. ACR Hunnies and Stingers currently prac-tice on Sunday nights from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m, Monday nights 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday nights 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Skating Palace, in Lake City. OUTDOORS FWC officers ready instantlyBy Katie Purcell At 9 p.m., the officer backs into his driveway. He signs off on the radio, climbs out of his truck and heads toward his dark-ened house. When he gets inside, he greets his wife and looks in on his two young children who are already tucked into bed. After changing out of his uniform, he hangs it in its usual spot in the closet. Finally, he showers and warms up his supper. At the other end of the county, one of his squad mates has just put on her bullet-resistant vest and uniform shirt. After snap-ping on her duty belt, she goes through the routine of checking her gear. Then she says goodbye to her husband and son and heads out the door to begin her shift. Her plans for the night include working in a wildlife management area where there have been night-hunting complaints. In the meantime, while the second officer is in the dark woods and the first is getting ready for bed, at just past 11 p.m., their supervisor is awakened from sleep by a ringing phone. Lieutenant? a voice asks. This is Dispatch. Your squad is heading to work a search-and-rescue and they need you right away. After giving a few brief details, the dispatcher disconnects quickly and begins calling others on the radio. In less than 20 minutes, the lieutenant has grabbed his uniform, always hang-ing in the same place in his closet, put on his gear, and is pulling out of his driveway in his patrol truck. As he buckles his seat belt, he checks in on the radio and lets Dispatch know he is 10-51 en route to the scene. During his drive to the next county he super-vises six officers across two counties he finds out more about the inci-dent and plans a meeting point with the other two officers. Situations like this are all too common for offi-cers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). They dont work what most people would call tradi-tional hours. Nor would many aspects of their job be considered traditional. But these roles are neces-sary. Many of them are working while were sleeping or enjoying a Saturday at a state park or a holi-day weekend in a camp-ground. They may start out their shift thinking theyre going to work on a certain issue, or they may have just fin-ished their regular shift and are at home. But, with a moments notice, they are called to assist with an urgent issue, like a search for a missing person. Many times, FWC officers work with other law enforcement, fire and med-ical personnel. Typically, the FWC provides the equipment and knowledge of the area, often using their ATVs and airboats to transport the personnel and victims. Every year, they perform around 1,000 rescues in the woods and on the water. This year, they have been involved in almost 700 so far. In fact, a scenario like the example above played out in the end of June. FWC officers spent nearly two days working with the Flagler County Sheriffs Office and Volusia and Seminole county air sup-port to locate a missing man. Guss Baker had been missing for several days when FWC officers finally found him shivering in a swamp near the Turkey Island Hunt Camp in Flagler County. The offi-cers warmed him with what they had their bul-let-resistant vests and bug-tamer jackets for several hours until a helicopter could arrive to lift him out of the swamp. Last month, after recovering from his ordeal, Baker reached out to the officers to thank them for their actions. Those officers saved my life. If it wasnt for them I wouldnt be here, Baker said. FWC officers Lee Lawshe and Rich Wilcox were the ones called upon to help. Even if we have a plan in mind, we never really know what well be doing on a given day, Lawshe said. We are all willing to respond quickly and do what it takes to get the job done and even save a life. From backing into their driveways at home, to hanging their clothes in the same spot after each shift, FWC officers have many habits. These ensure they can be ready as quick-ly as possible to respond to those after-hours emergen-cies when every second counts.
LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 & 28, 2013 5B5BNASCAR Blaney continues to emerge as one of NASCARs future starsRyan Blaney, the 19-year-old son of Sprint Cup veteran Dave Blaney, contin-ues to emerge as one of the future stars of NASCAR. On Saturday night in the Kentucky 300 at Kentucky Speedway, Blaney got his first Nationwide Series victory in just his 15th career start in the series and his second of the current season. Blaney got the win in Roger Penskes No. 22 Ford, and just getting to drive that car was a sign of Blaneys talent. The No. 22 has won 10 races this season with four dif-ferent drivers, and the other three A.J. Allmendinger, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano are Sprint Cup veterans. Blaney, who is running full-time in the Camping World Truck Series, where he has two career wins including one this season, started second at Kentucky and led 96 laps, including the final 89. Austin Dillon finished second, ahead of Matt Crafton, series points leader Sam Hornish Jr. and Alex Bowman. We had a great car all night, Blaney told reporters in his winners interview. We kept working on it throughout the race, just little tweaks here and there. We were really strong to start out the race and just got bet-ter and better as the runs went on. Blaney said that one of his biggest challenges was figuring out what to do on restarts now that NASCAR has changed the rules and allowed the second-place driver to keep the lead if he or she gets past the leader before the start/finish line. It was really tough the last few restarts to really know what was going to happen, he said. The way the restart rule is now, you never know how big of a push someone can get. I was a little worried being on the outside, but we had a great car to be able get through [Turns] One and Two good and be able to clear them by Three and Four. Hornish continues to lead the points standings and has a 15-point edge over sec-ond-place Dillon, who told reporters he was proud of his teams effort. We knew we would be good coming here; its one of our better tracks and Im just thankful we had a good run tonight, he said. It was a solid run. There was just one car better. Dillon, who won two Nationwide races last year and has run nine Cup races this year in anticipation of a full-time Cup schedule next year, is still winless in Nationwide this season. Nationwide Insurance to end title sponsorship of NASCARs No. 2 circuitNationwide Insurance announced last week that it is dropping its title sponsorship of NASCARs No. 2 circuit after the 2014 season, but will remain active in the sport. The company will begin spending most of its sponsor dollars in the Sprint Cup Series as well as continuing as the official auto, home, life and business insurance partner of NASCAR through 2017. It also will become the presenting sponsor of the Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award. After two of the 10 Chase races, Matt Kenseth is batting a thousand and headed to some of his better tracks two factors that add up to him being a clear champi-onship favorite at this point. If Kenseth keeps doing what hes doing, its not going to matter what anybody else does, Jeff Gordon said after Kenseth rolled to his career-best seventh win of the season and second in a row. Now were going to Dover and thats a great track for him. So, yeah, theyre denitely the team to beat right now. For Kenseth, who got his 31st career win in his 500th start and did it at a track where hed never won and has an average nish of 13.4, his dominant run on Sunday on top of a similar perfor-mance in the Chase opener at Chicagoland Speedway doesnt appear to have changed his approach. I know its kind of cliche, but it really is one week at a time, especially right now, he said. If you get down to-ward the end [of the season] and youre lucky enough to have a lead or something, maybe you start looking at that more or thinking about it more. But man, two whole months and eight weeks of racing is a lot of racing, and in this system, one bad n-ish and youre behind. But he also acknowledged that hes got some of his best tracks coming up on the schedule, including Kansas Speedway, where hes won the two most recent races. [I] certainly have a lot of condence in the next three tracks coming up, for sure, he said of Dover International Speedway, Kansas and Charlotte Motor Speedway, where he has a total of six career wins. In the past, theyve been good tracks for us. I felt like we were real strong at Dover in the spring. And certainly Kansas has been good for us, although we are going there with a different tire, so that might change things up a little bit. And Charlotte, the [Coca-Cola] 600 was good, as well. Also in Kenseths favor is the fact that his closest competitor, Kyle Busch, is also his teammate at Joe Gibbs Racing. Man, what a terrible problem to have, huh? Kenseth joked.

MATT KENSETH(finished first) 2,111 pointsIn his 500th start, he won at one of his worst tracks and heads into the third week of the Chase with back-to-back wins. For me to win at Loudon, first of all, is more than a stretch and more than a dream, he said. That just shows you how good this whole team is.2. KYLE BUSCH(finished second) 2,097 points; behind 14For the second straight week, he was runner-up to his Joe Gibbs Racing team-mate Kenseth. The 20 [Kenseth] just had a special car. We tried everything to get [ours] like theirs. It was just stupid fast. Hopefully, we have one of those magical cars in the next couple of weeks, too.3. JIMMIE JOHNSON(finished fourth) 2,093 points; behind 18After opening the Chase with two top-5 finishes, hes excited about his prospects for the coming week. Were in a good spot, he said. We havent given up too many points, and were going to one of my best race tracks next week. So I hope to have this Lowes Chevrolet in Victory Lane over there.4.CARLEDWARDS(finished ninth) 2,075 points; behind -36He said he was pleasantly surprised to score a top-10 finish. We could have had a lot worse day, he said. Obviously, we want to be better than that, but thats not bad.5. GREG BIFFLE(finished third) 2,073 points; behind 38He was coming on strong at the finish and felt he was as fast as the Joe Gibbs Racing drivers who finished ahead of him. It was about to be good, he said. I just wish [the race] was 325 [laps] instead of 300.6. KEVIN HARVICK(finished 20th) 2,072 points; behind 39Handling problems led to a frustrating day. We struggled with handling issues all day and never could get it figured out. Even though we didnt get the fin-ish we were looking for today, were not going to let it get us down.7. KURT BUSCH(finished 13th) 2,071 points; behind 40Like many of his fellow Chase drivers, he struggled to make his way through traffic as the race went on. We didnt hit it right on the adjustments today, he said. It was nobodys fault; we all agreed what adjustments to make, and it just didnt work out.8. JEFF GORDON(finished 15th) 2,069 points; behind 42He slid through his pit while leading the race and wasnt able to overcome the lost ground. I hadnt come close to sliding through all day, and I guess I carried a little bit more speed in there and crossed the splitter over the line by an inch, and thats all it takes to make a difference between a chance at winning and finishing 15th, he said.9.RYANNEWMAN(finished 16th) 2,064 points; behind 47After winning the pole, he had to overcome a loose-handling car and a mistake by his crew on pit road to finish as well as he did. I still dont understand what happened with the car, he said. Glad we got back up to 16th after the deal on pit road. Well head to Dover and see what we can get.10.CLINT BOWYER(finished 17th) 2,063 points; behind 48Hes still in the news more for his actions at Richmond than what hes done in the first two Chase races. At New Hampshire, he wasnt able to improve on his 16th-place qualifying effort.11.DALEEARNHARDT JR.(finished sixth) 2,049 points; behind 62He overcame early problems on pit road and gained two spots in the stand-ings. Glad we were able to get a decent finish out of it, he said.12. JOEY LOGANO(finished 14th) 2,042 points; behind 69Although New Hampshire is his home track and the site of his first Cup win, its not his favorite. It is the hardest race track in the world to pass, he said. Its the most frustrating place I think Ive ever been to, so Im just glad to leave.13. KASEY KAHNE(finished 37th) 2,040 points; behind 71A hard crash on Lap 253 left him at a loss for an explanation and oth-ers wondering about his well-being. I seriously dont really remember how it happened, he said. I hit the inside wall, but Im not sure how I got there.The manipulation of the nishing order of the Sprin t Cup circuits regular season nale at Richmond Inte rnational Raceway by Michael Waltrip Racing has cost t he team its sponsorship of the No. 56 Toyota driven by Martin Truex Jr. and has become a concern for many oth ers in the sport. NAPA Auto Parts, in a statement on its Facebook pag e, said that after thorough consideration, NAPA has m ade the difcult decision to end its sponsorship arrang ement with Michael Waltrip Racing effective Dec. 31, 2013 NAPA believes in fair play and does not condone act ions such as those that led to the penalties assessed by NASCAR. We remain supportive of the millions of NASCA R fans and will evaluate our future position in motor sports. The manipulations to try to get Truex in the eld f or the Chase for the Sprint Cup led to Truex being rem oved from the Chase eld, penalties for the three teams involved and the suspension of the teams general man ager, Ty Norris. But the loss of a major sponsor like NAPA is an eve n bigger blow to the team. NAPA reportedly spends about $20 million per year on its sponsorship of the team, and thats wor risome, even among other competitors in the garage. I was hoping after we got to race at Chicago that all that stuff was in the rearview mirror, said Matt Kenseth. Ob viously, it all wasnt. I think everybody is probably looking forwa rd to getting it behind us as a sport, and certainly I cant imag ine being in Michael [Waltrip] and Robs [Kauffman] shoes the la st week and a half. Its certainly been really unfortunate for everybody. Kenseth said he hopes NAPA will remain in NASCAR as a sponsor. Hopefully, theyll still be part of the sport, bec ause it is one of the mainstays of the sport who has always done the whole car and done all that which is kind of the exception, and not the rule, these days, he said. Jimmie Johnson said he, too, was jolted by the news and the implications for Waltrips team and NASCAR as a who le. In this tough economy and tough world right now, w e hate to see sponsors leave, he said. Its going to be ver y challenging for MWR with the loss of such a major sponsor. Michael Waltrip Racing issued its own statement: T here is no doubt, the story of Michael Waltrip Racing begins w ith NAPA Auto Parts, but there are many more chapters yet to be written. MWR has the infrastructure and support of Toyo ta for three teams plus three Chase-caliber, race-winning driver s. With the support of our corporate partners, we are preparing to eld three teams in 2014. The departure of NAPA also leaves Truex in a difcu lt spot, especially with the decision made so late in the ye ar when most 2014 deals are already in place. Truex told reporters at New Hampshire that his futu re at Waltrips team is uncertain at this point. I dont know, he said. Its too early to tell, t o be honest with you. I wish I knew and I wish I could say, but a lo t of circumstances have to play out, and its so late in the game a nd late in the season. People already know what theyre doing next year. This is denitely not the time of year you want to nd out that you really dont have a ride next year, so to speak. Its goin g to be tough, but well have to deal with it, and hopefully, well g ure it out. He said hed like to stay with Waltrip if sponsorsh ip could be secured. I really enjoyed my last four years at MWR, and I feel like were getting to where we wanted to be when we star ted four years ago, he said. I would love to be there. The re are no guarantees right now. It just depends on how everything g oes down.Kenseth makes his 500th NASCAR career start to win S ylvania 300 at New HampshireNAPA Auto Parts announces end of sponsorship arrang ement with Michael Waltrip Racing0DUWLQ7UXH[-UV1$3$VSRQVRUHG1R7R\RWDOHD GVWKHHOGLQWKH6\OYDQLD&KULV7URWPDQ*HWW\,PDJHVIRU1$6&$5 Laps led by Jimmie Johnson in the past 17 Sprint Cup races at Dover International Speedway, tops among all drivers.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27-28, 2013 DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of a 4-year-old daughter and pregnant with my second child. My boyfriend and I live in a nice house and have a comfortable lifestyle. We each pay our own bills, and I pay half the mortgage that is in his name. I am extremely unhappy at my job. The job itself isnt the problem; its the management team and its effect on office morale. They treat us employees like dirt, thus everyone is always fighting with each other. I try to stay out of it, but I am unhappy to the core there. I want to find another job after my maternity leave, but Im afraid my soon-to-be-fiance wont be willing to pick up the slack financially while Im temporarily unem-ployed. Isnt this the normal give-and-take that married couples go through? Are my expec-tations unreasonable? -EXPECTING AND DEPRESSED IN TEXAS DEAR EXPECTING: I assume that you have dis-cussed this with your boy-friend and he wasnt recep-tive. Your expectations wouldnt be unreasonable if you WERE married or at least engaged. But youre not. While you and I think he should help you financially over this rough patch, he may feel no obli-gation to do so. If thats the case, your not-quite-fiance appears to be treat-ing you like a roommate-with-benefits. Because you are not on the title of the house you pay half the mortgage on, there is no guarantee you will ever have anything to show for your contribution. In light of that, of course he should be supportive emotionally and financially if you leave your job. Expecting him to step up to the plate is not unrea-sonable. But whether he agrees with you and me is another matter. Please find out before you invest any more money or he impreg-nates you again. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My hus-band and I are well into a relaxed retirement. His successful, middle-aged son Rory has developed the habit of stopping by unannounced occasion-ally on his way home from work. This would be fine except that it falls in the middle of the dinner hour. Although we ask Rory to join us, he prefers to just stand over us and talk about his day while we eat. This wasnt his childhood home, so its not a matter of an extended familiarity with this residence. I have asked his father to speak to him about it, and while he agrees that his sons actions are rude, he refused to say anything. To me, it looks like this is the most convenient time for Rory to get the occa-sional parent visit out of the way while not consid-ering our feelings. Because I have had a good long-term relation-ship with my stepson, I took him aside and politely explained that these din-ner interruptions are discourteous. Rory blew up at me! I was astonished to see a mature man I respected act in such a childish manner. Now Im the culprit in a fam-ily rift, while my husband remains mute. Should I have focused on diges-tion and held my tongue? -DISAPPOINTED STEPMOM DEAR STEPMOM: Because your husband refused to say anything and wont back you up, it appears the answer is yes. While some people consider the dinner hour to be sacred, not everyone does, and your stepsons visits were only occasional. Your request might have been better received had you told Rory that his hovering makes you nervous, and if he didnt care to share the food you had prepared, youd appreciate it if he would at least sit at the table with you for everyones comfort. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Im a 14-year-old girl whos hav-ing a disagreement with my parents about dating. Theres this guy, Connor, who likes me, and Im very comfortable with him. His older sister and I are good friends. The trouble is, my parents have strict rules against dating and I think its unfair. I think Im mature enough to date, and I know right from wrong. My friends say Im very mature for my age, and they approve of Connor because hes friendly and has an out-going personality. I have tried talking to my parents about this, but I always end up in tears. Can you tell me how I can convince them to give this guy a chance? -GROWN UP AT 14, PRINCE GEORGE, CANADA DEAR GROWN UP: A sure way to show your parents youre mature enough to date would be to show them youre a responsible person. Do they know when they ask you a question that theyll get an honest answer with no evasion? Have you shown them that you respect their curfews? Do you do the chores that are expected of you without having to be reminded? Is the same true about your homework? If the answer to these questions is yes, then do they KNOW Connor? Do they know his parents? If they do, they might feel more comfortable about your seeing him, IF its in a group rather than one-on-one. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Im 13 years old and I recently enrolled in a new school. I have met two boys, Jake and Cory, and I have been crushing on both of them. I really like Jake for everything, but Im not sure he likes me back. I like Cory for his looks and popularity, and Im positive he likes me because he said so. Should I ask Jake to go with me first, and if he says no, rebound to Cory? -CONFUSED IN RAYMOND, MISS. DEAR CONFUSED: The school year has just start-ed and its a little early to be asking someone to go with you. If you take your time -say, wait a month -Jake may find the courage to tell you he likes you, too. If he doesnt, tell Cory youre interested in him and see if he still feels the same way about you. (The odds are 50/50.) And who knows? In another month, there might be a third guy. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My brother thinks I eat too slow, and I think he eats too fast. He claims its rude to eat slow and make others wait for you. I say eating slowly is healthy, and its better than wolfing down your food to keep up with the people youre with. Whos right? -AT MY OWN PACE IN EDDINGTON, MAINE DEAR AT YOUR OWN PACE: Youre both right. If you eat so slowly that the rest of the people at your table must wait for you to finish, ask them to proceed with their dessert and coffee so they wont have to sit there and watch you masticate. And wolfing down ones food causes some people to overeat, which is why weight-loss specialists advise against it. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: What do new fathers hand out today instead of cigars? -NONSMOKER IN SAVANNAH DEAR NONSMOKER: Because so much more is now understood about the dangers of tobacco, many new fathers today hand out small gift bags of candy instead -blue for a baby boy or pink for a daughter. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont take anything or anyone for granted. Expect to face opposition at a personal level and prepare to compromise in order to avoid an unwanted change. Overreacting, overspend-ing and overindulging must be monitored if you want to avoid emotional setbacks. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Look for pleasurable ways to pass time. Engage in events or activities that you can share with someone you enjoy being with. A closer bond can be formed that will set the stage for future engage-ments. Live, love and laugh. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Connect with old friends or business associ-ates. The information you gather will help you make an important decision regarding your future. You can stabilize your income by presenting what you have to offer for a variety of unusual applications. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Pay more attention to the things that make you happy. Pampering will lift your spirits and make you feel good about the way you look. Checking out an interest that is unusual will translate into new begin-nings. Love is highlighted. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A secret is likely to be divulged. You may have to make a last-minute altera-tion to avoid an embarrass-ing situation or encounter with a colleague or old friend. Dont give in to restrictions or limitations. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Make up your mind. Pick whom you want to spend time with and the type of help you wish to offer others. Set the stan-dard and stick to your prin-ciples. Your strengths will win you a very interesting and prosperous position. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep your emotions under control. Dont let anyone goad you into something you dont want to do. A simple yes or no will be sufficient. Time spent gathering informa-tion or taking care of per-sonal needs will help you avoid meddling and inter-ference. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Expand your interests or travel to a destination that will help your imagina-tion wander and your ideas translate into workable plans for the future. The projects you begin now will bring positive changes to the way you do things. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stick close to home and set up a work-able routine that will help you be more efficient and satisfied with your life. Competitive activities will entice you, but you are best to save your energy to invest in domestic affairs. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Youll be divided on some issues that can affect your life personally and professionally. Wager the pros and cons and dis-cuss your plans with the people in your life you are closest to. Emotions will escalate easily if you arent accommodating. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Take a greater interest in your financial situation and how you can turn something you are good at into a service that is in demand. Picking up skills, knowledge or asking an expert for help may not be easy, but it will pay off. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Follow a unique and interesting path. Pursue what pleases you financial-ly or physically. Children will have an impact on what you do and how you do it. Romance is high-lighted, and socializing and entertaining will enhance your love life. +++++ THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Woman questions boyfriends support as she changes jobs Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
