These figures are down roughly 87 percent from 2012s 4,183 acres.

By BRANDON LARRABEE The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE A divided appeals court on Thursday threw out seconddegree murder charges against a man who fatally shot two others outside a Chilis restaurant in a case that could renew debate on the states stand your ground law. The 3rd District Court of Appeals ruling, which overturned a decision by a lower court, could once again put Floridas first-in-the nation stand your ground law and its meaning before the Florida Supreme Court. In Thursdays 2-1 decision, a threejudge panel found that Gabriel Mobley should be immune from charges in the 2008 deaths of Jason Gonzalez and Rolando Roly Carranza in Opa-locka. The two men were later found to be unarmed, though two knives were found near one of their bodies. Mobley argued that the shootings were justified under the stand your ground law, which grants immunity from pros ecution to people who use deadly force if they reasonably believe their lives are in danger. New stand your ground case could head to Supreme Court The shooting at issue did not occur in a vacuum... Mobley did not shoot two innocent bystand ers who just happened upon him on a sidewalk. Judge Linda Ann Wells County proposes tippage fee deal By STEVEN RICHMOND firstname.lastname@example.org The Board of County Commissioners Thursday evening developed a pro posal for the citys solid waste collector that would offset higher tippage fees for the 2013-14 fiscal year. Waste pro is making the argument...they will have to consider carrying Lake City waste to a facility outside of the county due to the increase in tippage fee, County Manager Dale Williams said. The agreement would allow Waste Pro of Florida, Lake Citys solid waste con tractor, to pay the $42 per ton tippage fee for the next nine months instead of the countys post-Oct. 1, 2013 rate of $52 per ton on the condition Waste Pro con tinues to use county facili ties for the duration of their contract with the city.

Averys publicist, Cynthia Snyder, told The Associated Press that Avery died Tuesday in Glendale, Calif., following complications from open heart surgery. He was 68, Snyder said. Avery liked to say that the way to be an actor was to act, and he had a busy and diverse career before, during and after Fresh Prince. His TV credits included Greys Anatomy, NYPD Blue and Dallas, and among his many films were Fletch, Nightflyers and 8 Million Ways to Die. His voice alone brought him many jobs, notably as Shredder in the animated TV series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. According to Snyder, he will be seen in the film Wish I Was Here, directed by Zach Braff and scheduled to premiere later this month at the Sundance festival. He is survived by his wife, Barbara, and stepson Kevin Waters.Lawyer fined for outing Rowling as thriller writer LONDON A lawyer who let slip J.K. Rowlings secret thriller-writer identity has been fined 1,000 pounds ($1,645) for breaching client confidentiality rules. Chris Gossage of London law firm Russells Solicitors which represents Rowling told a friend of his wife that the Harry Potter creator was author of The Cuckoos Calling, published last year under the name Robert Galbraith. The friend tweeted the information, and it was followed up by the Sunday Times. The law firm apologized and paid damages to Rowling for the leak. The Solicitors Regulation Authority says it issued Gossage with a written rebuke for disclosing confidential infor-mation about a client to a third party. The ruling was dated Nov. 26 but published this week. Sales of the thriller rock-eted after Rowling was outed as its author. The Lake City Reporter corrects errors of fact in news items.

For details, call the Lake City Reporters classified OBITUARIES By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.com A Lake City man faces charges of burglary and trespassing after he attempted to enter an occu-pied home, then remained on the property after being asked to leave by the hom-eowner, accord-ing to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrest report. Patrick Dallas Albritton Jr., 32, of 169 NE Colvin Place, was arrested on Wednesday. He was also charged with loitering. Sheriffs deputy Brian Lucas responded to Rebecca Terrace in refer-ence to a suspicious per-son and a burglary attempt at approximately 9:50 p.m. on Wednesday. The hom-eowner stated that a man in a dark color coat and khaki pants came onto her porch and opened the screen door, the report said. Albritton attempted to open the door, but it was locked. According to the homeowner, she opened the door, thinking it was her grandson. Albritton then said, Oh, wrong house, when he saw her and exited the front porch to start peering inside the homeowners vehicle, the report said. He was told to leave the vehicle alone and get off the property, or else the homeowner was going to call the sheriffs office. Albritton told her to call them, then left the proper-ty. The woman who opened the door told her hus-band about the incident with Albritton. He climbed into his vehicle, drove out of the driveway and noticed Albritton standing in the middle of Rebecca Terrace, the report said. The suspect was looking at another house. While trying to locate Albritton, deputy Lucas noticed a male on Shelly Lane matching the descrip-tion provided by the home-owners. Albritton was car-rying a Styrofoam cooler with what appeared to be trash inside, the report continued. Albritton iden-tified himself after placing the cooler on the ground as requested by Lucas. When asked why he was at the home on Rebecca Terrace, Albritton said he thought it was his house, the report said. He informed Lucas he was not intoxicated or on any drugs. He didnt respond to inquiries by Lucas about why he didnt leave the house on Rebecca and why he was looking at other homes. Lucas arrested Albritton and transported him to Columbia County Detention Facility without further incident. Local man faces burglary and trespassing charges Albritton Morgan said. I want to encourage anybody out driving to use caution just in case. Water does freeze up in areas around our county, such as bridges, ditches and in low lying areas. Morgan also urged residents to protect pipes, pets and plants from the colder temperatures. He suggested bringing plants and pets in doors and wrapping pipes and let the water drip to make sure pipes dont freeze. decade, the Suwannee District reported 2,809 fires that burned 126,335 acres.

Therefore they are not able to include the increase in this fiscal year. Williams said Lake Citys contract did not stipulate where Waste Pro must dump their trash. Rather, Waste Pro shops around according to varying tippage fees and fuel prices, he said. Commissioner Stephen Bailey proposed offering the lower, original fee to the company until the city passes its 2014-15 fiscal year budget Oct. 1 as long as Waste Pro continues to use county facilities. If theyre not willing to do that, then Im not even willing to even entertain the option of giving the reduced rate, he said. Waste Pro is currently in the first year of a five-year contract with the city and said they have plans to discuss the increased fees during their next budget workshops. The next county commission meeting will take place at the School Board Administrative Complex Thursday, Jan. 16 at 5:30 p.m. COUNTY: Budget to offset feesContinued From 1AThe self-defense law has been a flashpoint since the 2012 death of Trayvon Martin, who was shot by neighborhood watch volun-teer George Zimmerman. While Zimmerman did not ask for stand your ground legal immunity, much of the debate following the shoot-ing centered on the law. Zimmerman said he shot the unarmed black teenag-er in self-defense and was later acquitted of second-degree murder charges in Martins death. The Opa-locka shootings outside Chilis hap-pened shortly after Gonzalez punched Jose Chico Correa, a friend of Mobleys, while Correa and Mobley were smoking outside. Correa, Gonzalez and Carranza had gotten into an argument earlier in the restaurant. After Mobley waved off Gonzalez, Carranza approached and, accord-ing to Mobley, appeared to reach under his shirt to draw a weapon. Mobley opened fire. Judge Linda Ann Wells, writing for herself and Chief Judge Frank Shepherd, said Mobley had reason enough to believe that he was in danger. The shooting at issue did not occur in a vacu-um, she wrote. Mobley did not shoot two innocent bystanders who just hap-pened upon him on a side-walk. ... It may have been more prudent for Mobley and Chico to skitter to their cars and hightail it out of there when they had the chance; however, as even the State concedes and the court below recognized, Mobley and Chico had every right to be where they were, doing what they were doing and they did nothing to precipitate this violent attack. But in his dissent, Judge Vance Salter noted that Mobley had to go back to his car to grab his gun when he and Correa went out to smoke. Salter also noted that Mobley didnt get the gun when he and Correa had left the restau-rant for two earlier smoking breaks, and that it wasnt clear that Carranza was reaching into his clothes during the fight. Given that, the court should have deferred to the judge who held the stand your ground hear-ing, Salter wrote. The fact-intensive determination of whether a reasonable and prudent person in the defendants shoes might have per-ceived that Mr. Carrazana was reaching for a deadly weapon turned on the courts assessment of the defendants credibility, he said. The defendant and his friend of 17 years were the only living eyewitness-es to that important fact. The video and freeze-frame images did not definitively prove or disprove the rea-sonableness of that alleged perception -an alleged per-ception which turned out to be erroneous. A spokeswoman said Thursday afternoon that Attorney General Pam Bondis office was still reviewing the ruling. But relying on local prosecutors, The Miami Herald reported that the appeals court would be asked to hear the case again, potentially paving the way for the case to go to the Supreme Court. COURTContinued From 1ABy BRENDAN FARRINGTONAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott signed a death warrant Thursday for the man who kid-napped, raped and murdered 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce on his way home from school almost 20 years ago. Juan Carlos Chavez, 46, is scheduled to die by lethal injec-tion Feb. 12 for the Sept. 11, 1995 murder in a rural area in Miami-Dade County. It was a case that horrified the state and led to the passage of the Jimmy Ryce Act, which allows authorities to commit dangerous sexual predators to mental institutions once they have completed their prison terms. The law would not have stopped Chavez, however, as he had no previous record for sex crimes. Jimmy had just been let off his school bus when Chavez kidnapped him and brought him to a trailer on the ranch where he was a handyman. He raped the boy and held him at gunpoint for more than three hours, finally shooting him as he tried to escape. He chopped the body up, put the remains in large planters and then sealed them with concrete. He was arrested almost three months later after the boys book bag was found in the trailer. He then gave a detailed confession to the crime. A judge moved the trial from Miami-Dade to Central Florida because of pretrial publicity. He was convicted in 1998 and sentenced to death. Justice will finally be done in the murder of my son, Jimmy, the boys father, Don Ryce, said in a statement emailed to the news media. I feel a com-bination of sadness and relief. I hope this sends a message to predators that this behavior will not go unpun-ished. The execution comes as lawmak-ers try to strengthen sexual-offense laws, including pos-sible tweaks to the Jimmy Ryce Act. After the murder, Ryce and his wife Claudine, who died in 2009, worked to pass laws that would help find abducted children and prevent similar crimes. During the search for Jimmy, they put up posters in court-houses and public buildings that were taken down because they werent authorized. In response, President Bill Clinton signed an executive order instructing fed-eral agencies to post missing-children posters in post offices, federal courthouses and other federal buildings. The couple, both lawyers, raised awareness about the need for law enforcement to search for missing children sooner, noting that most children who are abducted are killed within 48 hours. They also set up a non-profit group that provides blood-hounds to police agencies, sup-port for parents of abducted children and increases aware-ness about sexual predators. =da^YVn=djgh [dgLVhiZE^X`je )&,+H#JH=ln))& ,*'"&',* Closed New Years DayLZYcZhYVn#####E^X`jeI]jghYVnI]jghYVn#############E^X`je;g^YVn;g^YVn#############E^X`jeHVijgYVn Scott signs death warrant for Jimmy Ryces killerJustice will nally be done for the murder of my son Jimmy...

F orgive us if we are a little skeptical of the Obama administrations celebra-tory announcement that 1.1 million Americans have signed up for health insurance on healthcare.gov, the online fed-eral marketplace. That total supposedly includes more than 975,000 Americans who supposedly signed up for private insurance plans this month alone, nearly 900 percent greater than sign-ups from Oct. 1, Obamacares official launch date, and Nov. 30. Even if the 1.1 million figure is accurate, it still is 2.2 million below the administrations original pro-jections. It also doesnt tell us the demographic makeup of those who have signed up. Indeed, Forbes notes that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which runs the Obamacare health exchanges, reports the number of Americans who have signed up for health insurance, but not the number who actually have enrolled. The magazine added that only around 5 to 15 percent of SAMPS, referring to people who have selected a marketplace plan, have actually enrolled in coverage. If we extrapolate, that suggests that only about 49,000 to about 146,000 Americans may actually have obtained health insurance in December. Then theres the question of how many new enrollees were previ-ously insured, but had their poli-cies canceled because they did not conform to standards set forth by Obamacare. The Associated Press notes that roughly 4 million Americans had their health insurance canceled whether they like it or not. While CMS decided that people with canceled plans could retain them another year, not all state health exchanges and insurance compa-nies concurred. Among those refusing was Covered California, which required some 900,000 individual policyhold-ers to obtain new coverage or face Obamacare fines. About a third of the 900,000 can obtain government-subsidized replacement policies. But the other two-thirds almost cer-tainly will face higher costs. Its a bitter pill for some of our folks to swallow, Leesa Tori, Covered Californias interim plan manager told the San Jose Mercury News. Another cohort that will have a hard pill to swallow are healthier Americans, who will pay higher pre-miums to offset the cost of provid-ing affordable health insurance for the less-healthy. We do not know how many of the 975,000 who signed up for Obamacare this month are healthy. But if there are more unhealthy than healthy, the cost per enrollee will drive up premiums to the point that may be unaffordable for the average Americans. Higher-than-expected premiums can be mitigated by government subsidies, for those who qualify. But if Obamacare drives off healthy folk particularly young people, who could see their premiums double or triple then the subsidies will be insufficient to make health insurance affordable for most prospective enrollees. Decembers sign-up figures for healthcare.gov, if valid, have given Obamacare supporters cause for optimism. But lets see how things work out when healthcare.gov enrollees expect to start using their health insurance in hospitals and doctors offices, before we declare that Obamacare no longer problem-ridden.

Have you ever recorded a song, and were shocked and disappointed at how you sounded? Or looked around your room and thought how much you need a dec-orator? Has someone close to you hinted that youre not an artist? I think most of us have come to believe that were just not creative. But thats really not being fair to yourself. What is creativity, anyway? And where does it come from? The Wikipedia definition of creativity: A phenomenon whereby something new and valuable is created. Those of us in the field of psychology might add, and is a trait that has potential, and can be developed through education and training. The first time you sat on a bicycle, didnt you struggle to learn to ride? Did you take a few falls? Remember learning how to drive? We arent born artists. Were all born with the capability of learn-ing and developing our talents, knowledge and skills, but learning and development are processes that take time, feedback, and lots of practice. They say it takes 21 days to break a habit, or to develop a new habit. Wouldnt you expect that it takes a while to develop your creativity, too? Dont be so quick to judge your efforts. Show yourself some tolerance, patience, and hope. I remember recording a song with my sister when we were teen-agers, in a booth in a mall. We sounded awful! I was discouraged for years. And I remember making some pitiful drawings when I was a child. They werent even good enough for my mom to hang on the refrigerator! Since then, Ive spent a lot of time and effort practicing piano and voice, and Ive played keyboard with a country western band for three years, joined the church choir, and sing publicly at least once a month. And I certainly dont have any special gift of music abilities. Everyone has creative potential, and anyone can improve and develop their creativity. What you can do? Creative people show certain personality charac-teristics. They tend to be noncon-forming, curious, and persistent. Do you ever act like that? Im sure all of us have shown those traits. You could do some self-explora-tion and discovery by visiting your library and asking the librarian to show you the creativity books section. You could search the web. The WikiHow web site suggests that creativity can certainly be nurtured and developed, and offers some suggestions: Take feedback with a grain of salt. Keep following your own path. Others may be quick to shoot down your efforts. Dont listen. Take a look at your own efforts. Ask yourself, How could I have done this better? Criticize your own work. Dont be a perfectionist! Accept what you can do today, and know that you can improve it with prac-tice. Dont ever define yourself as uncreative. Everyone can be cre-ative. Dont be afraid to fail. Failure can be a step on the way to success. Think like an adult, but act like a kid. (Think about it!) Challenge yourself with creative exercises. Try writing a story about a picture. Do quick sketches. Play games, draw, paint, sing, or learn a musical instrument. Here are some ideas that work for me, and might work for you: Put yourself in circumstances that encourage creativity. Join a group with similar interests. Stretch your limits. Work as independently as you can. Take some risks. Take time to think through problems, challenges, or puzzles. Learn a new skill. Break your routine. Think you cant draw or sing? Try it out for fun. Dance, dont sit it out! Look for opportunities for using all your skills and abilities. When you do this, you develop your mind and it expands and becomes even more creative. Go for it! How did it go? Let me know your story at email@example.com or 386 454 4950. L ast summer, Gov. Rick Scott signed into law a ban on tex-ting while driving, and on Oct. 1, Florida joined the majority of states that officially frown on the dangerous practice. The new law is not especially strong.First, its only a secondary offense, meaning that you cant be pulled over merely for texting you must be cited for some other violation, such as speeding. Also, the fine is small: $30 for a first offense, $60 for a second. There are loop-holes: For example, you can text while your car isnt actually moving. If you want to fight the citation, the law makes it difficult for law enforcement to prove you were texting. Still, for those who had been railing about distracted driving and trying for years to get such a law passed, it was a victory. Is the law being enforced? Barely.The Orlando Sentinel reported last week that, in the three months since the law took effect, few citations have been written. It is challenging because (troopers) do see a lot of people texting but not doing anything else wrong, Sgt. Kim Montes of the Florida Highway Patrol told the Sentinel. Lets not view call this law a failure, yet.Texting while driving is like any bad habit tough to break. As smartphones became more woven into our daily activities, it was only natural that people would take them to where they already eat, drink, talk, listen to the radio and even shave their cars. The trick is to convince drivers how dangerous texting is. They should know that, at 55 mph, in the 5 seconds it takes to read or send a text, they have gone the length of a football field without looking at the road. They should know that, even if theyre looking at the phone at a stoplight, they could miss seeing the mother hustling her toddler across the street before the light turns green. Citing every driver is not the answer. Raising awareness is, and thats where the new law helps. If you text while driving, stop. Now.If you know people who text while driving, tell them to stop. Tell them youd like them to live another day and let others live. And remind them that its the law.

FAITH & VALUES 5A Friday & Saturday, January 3 & 4, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com 5AGod never asks from us more than we can doL ast week we talked about Gods desire for you in the coming year. God never has a desire for you to do anything that you are not capable of doing in His name. Some say if He calls you He will equip you. I believe that He calls those who have the ability to accomplish His will. He never asks anything of us that is not reasonable. Romans 12:1-2 (NKJ) says, I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and accept-able and perfect will of God. Many who call themselves Christian give God very little, if any, of their time. What we usually give to God is only a few hours a week. Too many today are so involved in worldly affairs that they have no time for God. Paul urges us to present our entire being to Gods service. The word body here means the body as a whole, the instrument of life. The fact that we are not to be conformed not fashioned like the world is almost ridicu-lous to most. Many ask: How shall we function if not by the rules of the society in which we live? We must live in the world but not of the world. Our citizenship is not going to be in heaven someday; it is there today (Phil. 3:20). Our minds should be trans-formed. That is, our minds should be formed across the great divide between heaven and earth, so that the way we look at earthly issues is always from a heavenly perspective. But the pull of the world is strong, and we are weak. And the price of non-conformity to the world is very high; and the world continues each year to increase that cost. Yet it is not as high as the cost of non-confor-mity to the Word of God. This is why Paul had such a difficult struggle with sin (Romans 7:15), and it is why we do. We want to serve God, but so many times we let the world get in our way. So many believe that being a good Christian is about being good; it is not; as if we could actually be good. Being a good Christian is about serv-ing God. The KJV calls the living sacrifice of our bodies our reasonable service. Some transla-tions call it our spiri-tual service. Either will work. The point is we are in the world, but not of the world; and the world continually attempts to seduce us. We can also seduce ourselves to it. We cannot all be pastors and teachers; otherwise who would the pastors and teachers serve? But we each have an individu-al ministry through which we should serve God throughout each day, and to that we are called. We who profess to be Christians all have a ministry. What is your ministry? If we really believed that God only asks of us what is reason-able, we would never say no to a work He gives us to do. If God has called you, you are equipped to do what He calls you to do. The word cant is not in Gods vocabulary. Remember He only asks of us our reasonable ser-vice. The Holy Spirit is in you to help you with your ministry. What is your reasonable service? Hugh Sherrillemsfirstname.lastname@example.org Q Hugh Sherrill is an ordained minister presently serving at Philippi Baptist Church. BIBLE STUDIESRegaining trust: The difference between God and man O ur actions have offended some-one. They have caused a rough spot in our relationship. After realizing what we have done and finally asking for their forgiveness, why is it we expect them to trust us like nothing ever happened? We expect them to trust us like they did before we conducted our offensive actions. The husband does not understand why his wife has trust issues after he has apologized for his extra-marital activities. After admitting to embez-zling funds from the bank account, apologizing for doing it and returning the money, the employee does not understand why his employer does not trust him. The teenager does not understand why the parent doubts his honesty after the teen-ager has confessed to lying to his parents about where he has been and who he has been with. The major difference between us and God as it relates to this matter of trusting people after we have forgiven them is that humanity does not really know if the person has repented and is striv-ing not to commit the offensive action again. Because God can see the heart, He can see if the person has truly repented of her actions and He knows how sincere she is. We cannot do either one of these. Due to the severity of their actions, trusting them may take a long while; maybe months or even years. The offend-ing party needs to realize that the one who they have offended needs time to lick their wounds. They need time to get over the hurt and suf-fering. They need some positive experiences with the offender to make sure he is not going to harm them again. The offended has his part to fulfill also. He must work at rebuilding the relationship too. After forgiveness is granted, the offended should immediately begin to show signs of trusting the offender. This action may be the most difficult one to put into practice. By beginning with trust-ing in small issues, then one day maybe there can be trust with regard to large issues. By beginning to trust people, we are sticking out our necks and taking a risk that it will not be chopped off again. In order for us to begin the trust rebuilding process we must think the best of the individual and be will-ing to anticipate a change in behavior. But how do we do that? Maybe the first thing we must do is have a loving attitude towards the offender. Because we want to have a rela-tionship with them, we are willing to apply the old saying, Love cov-ers a multitude of sins (Proverbs 10:12, 1 Peter 4:8). Continuing to love a person after they have really hurt us takes a lot of love for the other person. It really says that I am going to love you more than I love myself. The other thing which must be done is we must want to have a relation-ship with that person even though they have caused us a lot of heart-ache and pain. Because of the past relationship with this individual, we want to continue that relationship, but we must get over the scars. To do this means that we are not going to dwell on the scars but rather we are going to focus on how important the relation-ship is to us. Both the offender and the offended must have some patience with and understanding for the other person. If both of them will do what is nec-essary, then there can be trust after forgiveness.

6AF&V Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORT ER FAITH & VALUES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JANUARY 3 & 4, 2014 6A Forgetting what is behind, press onH appy New Year! Ready or not, 2014 is here. Lots of folks are still enjoying their Christmas lights and decorations right up until New Years Day, and in the South, some have been known to leave them up year round. (Why make things harder than they have to be?) So, please dont think me a Scrooge, but Im ready for that tree to come down soon after the presents are unwrapped. I think this is because I really like moving forward. After Christmas, I imme-diately start anticipating the fresh clean pages of the New Years calendar. Depending on how you look at it, those pages can represent days full of dread and demands or they can shine with possi-bility and opportunities! The Apostle Paul says it this way: ...I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me...but one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14) God has created us with a purpose. That alone is amazing, but even more, and He calls us to participate with Him in bringing that purpose to reality. Paul says we have to press on or keep mov-ing forward to fulfill that plan. Then he gives us instruction on how to do just that: Forgetting what is behind doesnt mean that we should not remem-ber our past, but that it shouldnt take priority over the present and future. Too many of us struggle continually with the hurt and failures of the past and cant seem to move ahead in forgiveness, or on to success. Perhaps we even dwell on the past because we believe they were our best days, and the rest of our years will pale in com-parison. This will only be true if we choose to stay behind. Gods desire is for us to give the present and future our energy, our hope and our faith that His plan for us will be immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20) The abundant life that Christ offers is not a destination, but a journey, and to live it to the fullest, we are to keep moving forward, trusting Him through the challenges that life throws our way. The second part of the instruction is just as important; we need to pay special attention to straining toward what is ahead. Websters diction-ary defines strain as to struggle; to make a desperate effort. This is our first clue that pressing on and moving forward will not always be an easy thing to do. Easy often means staying right in that same comfortable spot-it may not even be a great spot, but at least we know what to expect! We have the choice: we can do easy and spend the rest of our lives wonder-ing what we missed, or we can start making that intentional effort to find and live in the purpose for which God planned our entire life. I hope so much that you will grab those fresh pages of a 2014 calendar and see them as brand new oppor-tunities to be everything that God created you to be...because your heart really does matter! Blessings for an amazing New Year! Angie HEART MATTERS Angie Landangieland3@windstream.net Q Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, director of the Family Life Ministries of the Lafayette Baptist Association, where she teaches bible studies, leads marriage and family conferences, and offers bibli-cal counseling to individuals, couples and families. Cheerful giving a matter of the heartI was baptized when I was eight. I was short for my age, skinny, and proudly wore a butch cut. (Kids would call it a buzz cut today.) My church had less than 100 members, and we met in a converted ware-house, sitting in folding metal chairs bracketed into rows. The elders decided that if I was old enough to be saved, I was old enough to be put to work. So, Sunday nights, it became my job to pass out com-munion to those who were Providentially hindered(?) from attend-ing on Sunday morning. An older man would say the prayers, and Id take the tray to the members. Then, each Providentially hindered member would stand, letting me know who was to get the bread or grape juice. Then came the contribution I noticed that several members whod stood for the commu-nion had sat down. This puzzled me greatly. After all, there were five acts of worship, and you had to do all five! Even I knew that! And so, I figured theyd gotten too tired to stand. (After all, they were old!) Since I could easily remember whod stood earlier, it just seemed the polite thing to do to bring them the tray for the offering. I knew about the widows mite. No one has so little money that they cant give anything! Id have happily received a penny from each Providentially hindered member. But zero? I never even considered that this could be pos-sible. I took the tray to a woman who was sitting but had been standing and stuck it under her face. She shook her head for some reason. (I fig-ured she was palsied.) I had seen some old people like that. I waited and waited until she reached into her purse, grabbed some green bills, and sheepishly stuffed them into the tray. I figured Id done a pretty good deed! This woman was tired and probably forgot to have her money ready to give. It was only polite to patiently wait for her to grab her offering. It was worth waiting to relieve her of the awful sin of performing only four acts of worship! I then went to a man who, like the woman, had tired of standing. He was fumbling through his billfold for money, clearly embarrassed that hed forgotten to stand! And on the evening went. I made sure every single member participated in the collection, just as God had commanded! Many years later my dad told me that my actions had prompted a special elders meeting. Someone wanted to know if they were going to let me keep on collecting for God or were going to teach me to politely let people decline. The elders decided there was no reason to make me stop! And so for years I was the elders desig-nated collection agent on Sunday nights! Giving is an individual, private, matter of the heart. It is a grace in which Christians should grow, and the heart of the giver should be cheerful. Giving because you have to is not grace it is the result of law/works. There is no growth in law/works, no Savior or grace only guilt for not doing enough (and its never enough). Giving only profits the giver when it is a want to, heart-felt thing. This is what happened in 2 Corinthians 8 when the Macedonian Christians first gave themselves to the Lord and then gave to help other Christians in need. They werent forced, embarrassed, cajoled, manipulated, guilted, into giving . They gave out of love so should we.

Dealing with outsiders part 5 of 5By DAVID MATTHISAP Religion WriterIn the final segment of dealing with outsiders, we have to stop and ask ourselves why we should care about outsiders. Should Christians really care what unbelievers think? The biblical answer is just as much yes (if not more so) as it is no. But most significant is why, and both the apostles example and his exhorta-tion agree: that they may be saved. To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (not being outside the law of God but under the law of Christ) that I might win those outside the law. To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. (1 Corinthians 9:2122) Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God, just as I try to please everyone in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved. (1 Corinthians 10:3233) In the end, we care because God cares. He delights to make outsiders into insiders. He rejoices to bend his heart outward to the vilest offender, and not to leave them outside, but bring them into the sphere of his eternal covenant love. And he loves to make us frail, former outsiders his means for bringing in more. Pope stresses hope for new yearBy FRANCES DEMILIOAssociated PressVATICAN CITY Pope Francis, laying out his hopes Wednesday for the just-begun year, urged people to work for a world where everyone accepts each others differences and where enemies recognize that they are brothers. We are all children of one heavenly father. We belong to the same human family and we share a com-mon destiny, Francis said, speaking from his studio window overlooking St. Peters Square, jammed with tens of thousands of faithful, tourists and Romans. This brings a responsibility for each to work so that the world becomes a community of brothers who respect each other, accept each other in ones diversity, and take care of one another, the pope said. Setting aside his prepared text for a moment, he expressed impatience with violence in the world. What is happening in the heart of man? What is happening in the heart of human-ity? Francis asked. Its time to stop. He told the crowd this reflection was inspired by a letter he received from a man maybe one of you who lamented that there are so many tragedies and wars in the world. I, too, believe that it will be good for us to stop ourselves in this path of violence and search for peace, Francis said. In his remarks to the often-applauding crowd, he also expressed hope that the gospel of brotherhood speak to every conscience and knock down the walls that impede enemies from recognizing that they are brothers. Earlier, during his homily at New Years Mass in St. Peters Basilica, Francis spoke of humanitys journey in the year unfolding and invoked what he said were words of bless-ing, explaining that they are strength, courage and hope. Not an illusory hope, he added, based on frail human promises, or a naive hope which presumes that the future will be better simply because it is the future. Hearing the cry of peace from peoples who are oppressed by war and by violence, Francis prayed that the courage of dialogue and recon-ciliation prevail over the temptation for vendetta, arrogance, corruption. Exchanging one resolution for 10,000 smaller onesBy Paul TrippDesiring God WriterIts that time once again. Its the fodder for blogs, magazine articles, TV shows, and way too many tweets. It is the time for the annual ritual of dra-matic New Years resolu-tions fueled by the hope of immediate and significant personal life change. But the reality is that few smokers actually quit because of a single moment of resolve, few obese people have become slim and healthy because of one dramatic moment of commitment, few people who were deeply in debt have changed their finan-cial lifestyle because they resolved to do so as the old year gave way to the new, and few marriages have been changed by the means of one dramatic resolution. Is change important? Yes, it is for all of us in some way. Is commit-ment essential? Of course! There is a way in which all of our lives are shaped by the commitments we make. But biblical Christianity which has the gospel of Jesus Christ at its heart simply doesnt rest its hope in big, dramatic moments of change.Living in the utterly mundaneThe fact of the matter is that the transforming work of grace is more of a mundane process than it is a series of a few dramatic events. Personal heart-and-life change is always a process. And where does that process take place? It takes place where you and I live every-day. And where do we live? Well, we all have the same address. Our lives dont careen from big moment to big moment. No, we all live in the utterly mundane. Most of us wont be written up in history books. Most of us only make three or four momentous decisions in our lives, and several decades after we die, the people we leave behind will struggle to remember our lives at all. You and I live in little moments, and if God doesnt rule our little moments and doesnt work to recreate us in the middle of them, then there is no hope for us, because that is where you and I live. The little moments of life are profound-ly impor-tant precisely because they are the little moments that we live in and that form us. This is where I think Big Drama Christianity gets us into trouble. It can cause us to devalue the significance of the little moments of life and the small-change grace that meets us there. And because we devalue the little moments where we live, we dont tend to notice the sin that gets exposed there. We fail to seek the grace that is offered to us.The 10,000 little momentsYou see, the character of a life is not set in two or three dramatic moments, but in 10,000 little moments. The character that was formed in those little moments is what shapes how you respond to the big moments of life. What leads to significant personal change? Q 10,000 moments of personal insight and con-viction Q 10,000 moments of humble submission Q 10,000 moments of foolishness exposed and wisdom gained Q 10,000 moments of sin confessed and sin forsaken Q 10,000 moments of courageous faith Q 10,000 choice points of obedience Q 10,000 times of forsaking the kingdom of self and running toward the kingdom of God Q 10,000 moments where we abandon wor-ship of the creation and give ourselves to worship of the Creator. And what makes all of this possible? Relentless, transforming, little-moment grace. You see, Jesus is Immanuel, not just because he came to earth, but because he makes you the place where he dwells. This means he is present and active in all the mundane moments of your daily life.His work to rescue and transformAnd what is he doing? In these small moments, he is delivering every redemp-tive promise he has made to you. In these unre-markable moments, he is working to rescue you from you and transform you into his likeness. By sovereign grace, he places you in daily, little moments that are designed to take you beyond your charac-ter, wisdom, and grace so that you will seek the help and hope that can only be found in him. In a lifelong process of change, he is undoing you and rebuild-ing you again exactly what each one of us needs. Yes, you and I need to be committed to change, but not in a way that hopes for a big event of transfor-mation, but in a way that finds joy in and is faithful to a day-by-day, step-by-step process of insight, confession, repentance and faith. And in those little moments, we commit ourselves to remember the words of Paul in Romans 8:32: He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us, how will he not also with him freely give us all things. So, we wake up each day, committed to live in the small moments of our daily lives with open eyes and humbly expectant hearts. Jesus is Immanuel, not just because he came to earth, but because he makes you the place where he dwells. January 6: RevivalNew Beginning Church, Highway 242 E Branford, will host Rev.

Both teams return to action this week. A host of high school games begin Saturday PAUL BUCHANAN /Special to the ReporterFormer Columbia High player Timmy Jernigan Jr. is one of many Seminoles to land in Southern California for the BC S National Championship game on Monday.Safe in SoCal By RALPH D. RUSSOAssociated PressANAHEIM, Calif. Before top-ranked Florida State made its way to south-ern California for the BCS championship game against No. 2 Auburn, Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher had some business to take care of on campus. Fisher signed a new contract Tuesday that runs through the 2018 season. The deal could signal an end to any plans Texas might have had to hire Fisher to replace Mack Brown. Seminoles, Tigers both arrive for championship. FSU continued on 3B By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIf the time off for the holiday has seemed a lit-tle slow without the usual sporting events through-out Columbia County, then Saturday is sure to come with a warm welcome. Columbia Highs basketball team tips off a slate of games next week to kick off the return of sports and the 2014 sporting season. The Tigers return from the break at 6-4 and host The Villages High at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. It is one of three games in Lake City next week, but there are a host of games out of town as well. The Tigers will play along with the Lady Tigers at Hamilton County High in a hoops double-header on Monday. The Lady Tigers game begins at 6 p.m. with the Tigers tipping off at 7:30. Columbias soccer team returns to action at Leon High in Tallahassee on Monday. The Tigers kick off against the Lions at 7 p.m. Columbia hopes to turn around their season with the new year after a 1-8-1 start to the season in 2013. Fort White begins the 2014 portion of its basket-ball season with the Indians traveling to Bradford High along with the Lady Indians to tangle with the Tornadoes on Tuesday. The Lady Indians begin the day with a 6 p.m. tip against the Lady Tornadoes and the boys will follow at 7:30 p.m. The Indians hope to begin 2014 with the same type of play they used in 2013 as Fort White is off to a 10-2 start to the season. The Lady Indians return from the break with a 3-7 record and look to turn things around in 2014. Perhaps the most interesting game of next week will be when Fort White and Columbia High square off on the soccer field. The Lady Indians and Lady Tigers havent had seasons to remember so far, but county bragging rights will be on the line. The game begins at 6 p.m. on Wednesday. The Tigers soccer team will make their second trip to Tallahassee against Chiles High on Wednesday at 7 p.m. Fort Whites basketball team will play at Melody Christian and Santa Fe high schools to end the week. The Indians will be looking for revenge against Santa Fe High as the Raiders knocked off Fort White during the break. The Lady Tigers soccer team will travel to Santa Fe at 7 p.m. on Thursday while the Tigers basketball squad travels to Oakleaf High at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday. SPORTS continued on 3B

3BSPORTS Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JANUARY 3 & 4, 2014 3B SPORTS: Games back on Saturday Continued From Page 1B FSU: Auburn arrive for title game Continued From Page 1BWere blessed that we got that out of the way so we can focus on winning a national championship, Fisher said Tuesday during a news conference at the ESPNZone in Downtown Disneyland as he sat next to the crystal football coaches trophy that will go to the winner Monday night at the Rose Bowl. Getting out of Tallahassee, Fla., on Tuesday proved a bit tricky for the Seminoles. They were delayed about two hours because they had to wait for a pilot to get clearance to fly. Its been a long day, All-America defensive back Lamarcus Joyner said. Its starting to sink in that we are here. Florida State (13-0) blew through its competition this season, winning each of its games by at least 14 points. The Seminoles will play for the BCS championship for the first time since the 2000 season. They last won a national title in 1999, under Bobby Bowden. This is the ultimate goal that we want to get to, said Fisher, who is in his fourth season as Florida States head coach. Auburn had no problem getting to California on Tuesday though this sea-son was a wild ride. The Tigers (12-1) were the biggest surprise of the 2013 season. A season after Auburn finished 3-9, did not win a Southeastern Conference game and fired coach Gene Chizik, the Tigers and first-year coach Gus Malzahn won their last nine games includ-ing stunning victories over Georgia and Alabama to reach the BCS title game for the second time in four seasons. Now that theyre here, the plan is to keep things as routine as possible. Were going to try to go about our Tuesday prac-tice, our Wednesday prac-tice, our Thursday prac-tice, Malzahn said, and do exactly what got us here. Senior defensive end Dee Ford, who was part of the 2010 national title team at Auburn, said he took a moment today, when the team was heading into Disneyland to appreciate how far the Tigers have come. Definitely wanted to enjoy the moment, he said. Its a blessing. I definitely want to soak in the moment and get focused when its time to be. Even with Fishers deal done, the opening at Texas still looms over the national title game. Texas reportedly has interest in hiring Fisher, and even Malzahns name has come up as a possible candidate for the Longhorns. I think that theres a sense of relief thats its done but anytime youre one of the top coaches in the country and theres a top program thats open, youre going to be on the list because that institution, Texas, can go and get basically anybody they want, Florida State athletic director Stan Wilcox said. But I know Jimbo, hes a Seminole. He wants to be with Florida State and we want him to be with Florida State. Auburn announced Malzahn agreed to a new deal with Auburn the week before the SEC title game. Fisher and Wilcox said the terms of the deal, which were not released, were agreed upon about three weeks ago. But when lawyers get involved, you know how things can take a little while? It wasnt anything bad it was just a matter of dotting the Is and crossing the ts. And then we prac-ticed all the way up until Monday. I was leaving at 6:30 in the morning, getting home 11:30 I wasnt think-ing about anything. We got the contract today. The first time I had a chance to sign it. Fishers previous deal ran through 2015 and paid $2.75 million annually. The new deal reportedly pays him about $4.1 million per season. Fisher wouldnt be the first college coach to sign a new deal and then bolt for another job shortly after, but the timing does make it seem that hes off the market. Its good that were able to get it done before the championship game, Wilcox said. PAUL BUCHANAN /Special to the ReporterLake City native Timmy Jernigan Jr. will play for a nati onal title with Florida State on Monday. Texas-sized cloud hangs over BCS titleBy RALPH D. RUSSOAssociated PressPASADENA, Calif. A Texassized cloud of uncertainty looms over college footballs biggest game of the season. As No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Auburn prepare in Southern California to meet Monday in the last BCS championship game, the University of Texas is still looking for a new football coach. And until the Longhorns make a hire, just about every successful coach can be considered a candi-date including Florida States Jimbo Fisher and Auburns Gus Malzahn. Ive been amazed about how quiet this thing has been, ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit said ear-lier this week. Because of that it leads me to speculate and believe that somebody still involved in coaching, whether its the NFL or college, must be one of their primary candidates. I think the longer this goes on I think its very, very clear that its somebody whos still coach-ing. Who that might be, I have no idea. Some leaks have sprung in the last couple of days, and it appears front-runners are emerging. Published reports out of Texas stated the Longhorns were interested in Fisher, Baylors Art Briles, Vanderbilts James Franklin and Louisvilles Charlie Strong. Michigan States Mark Dantonio has also been men-tioned as a coach Texas athletic director Steve Patterson is look-ing at. Patterson said he wants the search complete by Jan. 15. Texas, theyre going to be calling on everybody they pos-sibly can because theyre going to try to get the best coach they possibly can, Florida State AD Stan Wilcox said. Meanwhile, everybodys trying to keep their coaches because they all feel that the people that Texas is looking at are the best coaches out there. Florida State hopes it has put all the speculation about Fishers future to rest. The fourth-year head coach and Nick Saban disci-ple finally got around on Tuesday to signing a new contract that runs through the 2018 season and pays him about $4.1 million annually. Auburn agreed to a new deal with Malzahn the day before the Southeastern Conference cham-pionship game last month. The six-year contract is worth $3.85 million annually to the first-year Tigers coach. Briles got a 10-year deal in November from Baylor. Michigan State is working on a new deal for Dantonio that could double his $1.9 million salary. The Dallas Morning News and Austin American-Statesmen reported Patterson has met with Strong and that Briles, now that Baylors season ended Tuesday night with a 52-42 loss to UCF in the Fiesta Bowl, could be next to interview. And, of course, Saban, the object of so many Longhorns desires, agreed to a new multi-year deal with Alabama that will pay him $7 million a year after months of stories and speculation connecting the four-time national championship winning coach and Texas. But what do those extensions really mean? Are Fisher, Malzahn, Briles and even Saban truly off the market? A contract is written to be broken, said Kansas State athletic director John Currie, who doesnt have to worry about his football coach, 74-year-old Bill Snyder, going anywhere. The trend in college sports, especially college football, is for schools to quickly lock up successful coaches and hand out raises. Arizona AD Greg Byrne said the contract numbers that make headlines can often be deceiving. When you get down into the details the interesting numbers are whats guaranteed, both sides. If the coach were to leave, whats the buyout? And then if you were to dismiss your coach without cause what percent of the con-tract is guaranteed? Byrne said. Sometime youll see someone with an eight-year contract, but half the contract is guaranteed, so in some ways its a four-year contract instead. Florida State and Auburn have made their moves to protect their interests, and can spend this week focusing on what it takes to win a national championship. But until the Longhorns introduce a new coach, fans of the Seminoles and Tigers have reason to be distract-ed by whats going on in Austin. UCF enters offseason with national respectBY KYLE HIGHTOWERAssociated PressORLANDO UCF began the 2013 football season as an afterthought. The afterthought is now the new flavor of the month. With its 52-42 upset of sixth-ranked Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl, the No. 15 Knights posted their first 12-season in school history to cap a season that has turned into UCFs national coming out party. Whats more, UCF may have finally poked a hole in in-state paradigm perenni-ally dominated by Florida State, Florida and Miami. I tell you, we had every big win in the school his-tory this year, UCF coach George OLeary said. I think they had resiliency about them. Something you really cant coach. You can coach playing hard, but playing hard when things arent going well is most difficult. I think they accomplished that. Entering the season the expectation was that UCF would be just another also-ran in a new, hybrid American Athletic Conference that already included last years BCS darling Louisville and its preseason Heisman hopeful Teddy Bridgewater. But after a narrow early-season loss to South Carolina, the Knights upset the then-top 10 ranked Cardinals as part of a nine-game winning streak to end the season. Running back Storm Johnson, who rushed for 124 yards and three touch-downs in the Fiesta Bowl victory, said the Knights embraced their underdog tag all season. It makes it so sweet. Hard work is hard to hide. We tell everybody that, he said. The sky is the limit. We have been telling people that all year and we just followed through. Perhaps the biggest part of that UCFs run was junior quarterback and Fiesta Bowl offensive MVP Blake Bortles. In his second year as the Knights starter, Bortles was the constant in helping his team survive in seven games decided by seven or few points. Throwing for more than 3,500 yards and 25 touch-downs this season, Bortles NFL draft rose with every UCF win. With some pro-jections now putting him as potentially one of the first quarterbacks taken should he choose to skip his senior season, what he decides by the Jan. 15 early entry deadline now take takes center stage. Bortles met with OLeary in the weeks prior to the bowl game, and OLeary said the plan was for him to look at an evaluation from NFL personnel before he made a decision. I said before the game that I have no idea. I still have no idea, Bortles said. I cant even begin to contemplate that deci-sion because I am so proud to be part of this journey, this program and this university. The Knights lose just seven scholarship seniors this offseason. Three of those are starting offen-sive linemen, but clearly Bortles decision will have the most impact on them entering 2014. Both quarterbacks behind Bortles on the Knights roster Justin Holman and Pete DiNovo are both freshmen. Defensively UCF will also undergo some chang-es following the depar-ture of former defensive coordinator Jim Fleming, who was hired as Rhode Islands head coach. OLeary moved quickly on replacing him, though, hiring Paul Ferraro, who was one of OLearys assistants from his time at Georgia Tech. Whatever changes may be on the horizon, for now Bortles said he and his teammates are content enjoying the spoils of an emotional season. We believed in ourselves all year. Not many people did but we knew our abilities, Bortles said. We knew what we could do and we really play well on big stages...That is (what they) thrive on. We showed what we are all about. The lone game in Columbia County on Thursday will see the return of the Lady Tigers to their home court as Columbia hosts Madison County at 7 p.m. The Lady Tigers are 4-11 after picking up a couple of wins over the Christmas break. Friday ends with Columbia soccers Senior Night as the Tigers will host Fort White at 6 p.m. The Lady Tigers will travel to Suwannee High that night for a rivalry game with the Lady Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m. The Lady Tigers basketball team travels to Union County at 6 p.m. A junior varsity soccer tournament will also take place on Friday and Saturday in Tallahassee. Things wont slow down the following week either. Fort White and Columbia enter district tourna-ments for girls soccer. The Lady Tigers will be in Tallahassee at Leon High, while the Lady Indians travel to Gainesville and Eastside High. The new year is sure to bring excitement in sports.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JANUARY 3-4, 2014 DEAR ABBY: I am a 27-year-old mom who has always been overweight. I have tried all sorts of diets and programs, and have lost a few pounds and then gained it all back and more. My boss has offered to pay for me to have weight loss surgery. It is something I have always wanted, but could never afford. My boss told me she knows the struggle I have had and the frustra-tion I have experienced. My family is behind me and supports my decision to have it done. My con-cern is that once others in my office learn it was paid for by the boss, Ill be treated differently. Im concerned about possible catty comments. They are gossips, and I hate being the center of attention in situations like that. The truth is bound to come out, so how can I comment on the gift Ive been given? SO GRATEFUL IN TEXAS DEAR SO GRATEFUL: You have a generous and empathetic boss who obviously cares about you. Unless one of you reveals that she paid for your surgery, the truth is NOT bound to come out. How your opera-tion is paid for is nobodys business. DEAR ABBY: My father recently told me his girlfriend is pregnant with twins. She is in her 40s and he is in his 50s. She already has two kids who are quite a handful. They both have low-paying jobs and I dont think they can handle two more children. My father now is asking me to move in with him to help out. Because of their financial state and their ages, Im afraid this is a huge risk. If I tell him what my concerns are, I am sure hell think Im heartless and stop talking to me. I dont know what to do. Dad might not even be around to see those kids graduate from high school. What can I do? TROUBLED SON IN COLORADO DEAR TROUBLED SON: Unless youre willing to give up your free-dom I dont recommend doing what your father is proposing. He should not expect you to assume child care or financial respon-sibility because his birth control method failed. That privilege rightfully belongs to him and his girlfriend. Tell your father you sym-pathize with his dilemma, but the answer is no. DEAR ABBY: I read your column on the nights that I work, and I was wondering if you have had days when you just wanted to tell someone who has written to you to suck it up and deal with it. I am generally a nice person and would help the most helpless cases as best I could, but I know that I have days when I have been snarky. I was won-dering how you deal with those days. FEELING SNARKY TONIGHT IN VERMONT DEAR FEELING SNARKY: I write my col-umn from an office away from my home. Because of that, its easier to leave distractions (or prob-lems) on the other side of the door when I enter. Im here to help people, not to make anyone feel worse. If for some reason I felt I was unable to do that, I would either go for a long walk or postpone writing for another day. DEAR ABBY: I met a guy I think is perfect for me on a dating website. We have gone on several dates and they have been great. He respects my morals and even has some of his own, which isnt easy to find. The problem: He says I am exactly what he has been looking for except for one thing. I look like his mother. He says he really likes me and would like to keep dating to see if he can get past this issue. I like him very much. Is there something I can do, short of plastic surgery? DEAD RINGER IN ARIZONA DEAR DEAD RINGER: Before changing anything, you need to explore more closely what hes saying. Ask to meet his mother, then judge for yourself how strong the resem-blance is. Its possible the similarity is less physical and more about your per-sonality or mannerisms. You should not alter your image to please anyone but yourself. Keep in mind that many men DO marry women who resemble their mothers in some way -whether its conscious or not and the marriages are often successful. DEAR ABBY: My parents divorced many years ago, and ever since, I have lived with my mother and visit Dad on his days off from work. Mom cheated on Dad, and the man she cheated with lives with us. I dont have a good relationship with her boyfriend. We dont have much in common, and when he drinks, he gets angry for no reason and takes it out on me or Mom, and it puts the whole household in an awkward position, sometimes last-ing for days. When hes sober, he can be fun to be around. I have talked with my mom about this. She promises shell talk to him and things are going to change, but they never do. She doesnt want to break up with him because she cant afford to pay the mortgage on her own. I have thought about mov-ing in with my dad, but I dont want to upset her. What do I do? WANTS TO MOVE IN WITH DAD DEAR WANTS: Your mother hasnt asserted herself with her boyfriend because shes financially dependent on him. Shes afraid if she insists he do something about his drink-ing, he will leave her. The affair and the boyfriend were her choice, not yours. If you want to move in with your father to avoid being around a verbally abusive drunk -and your father is willing -thats what you should do. You should not have to toler-ate abuse in order not to upset your mother. Its OK to take care of yourself. DEAR ABBY: Im a 32year-old woman. My boy-friend of 11 years passed away almost three years ago. I loved him very much and miss him every day. Some well-meaning friends and family mem-bers have suggested a dat-ing site. Abby, when does someone know if its time to move on? I havent been on a date in 13 years. Im scared of putting myself out there again and getting hurt. Any advice would be great. SCARED IN OREGON DEAR SCARED: If the only reason you havent reached out before is fear of rejection, then its time to move on. Ask your friends and family to help you write a profile, and then consider what happens next as an adventure. While there are no guarantees youll immediately find a relationship like the one you had, you might find someone who is com-patible. And if you dont, you could still make some friends. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Make a difference. Dont limit what you can do. Someone you deal with will detect your uneasiness. Keep your distance from anyone try-ing to push or coerce you into something you feel uncertain about. Protect your reputation and your position. ++++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Set your priorities and talk about your plans. Taking a trip or spending time with some-one you want to do more with will bring you closer together. A partnership will bring you greater sta-bility as well as opportuni-ties. Dont hold back. ++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Check out your options and what you need to do, get or learn in order to move in a direc-tion that is better suited to your skills and education. Use an emotional situa-tion to help you maneuver into a position of interest. +++++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Embrace the upcoming year with hope, desire and a little persis-tence. Know what you want and dont be afraid to ask. Face an encounter with someone of influence in your life with a plan and let your persuasive person-ality lead the way. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Emotions will surface if someone tries to unload unwanted responsibilities on you. Before responding negatively, consider how you can manipulate the situation to work for you professionally, financially or physically. Where there is a will, there is a way. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get involved in something that enables you to offer more skills or servic-es. The more you interact with others, the easier it will be for you to reach for the stars. End your day on a romantic note. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Concentrate on whatever you can do to improve your status quo or your attitude regarding life, love and what you want to do next. A change is overdue, but old conditions must be ended before new ones can be put into play. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Travel or sign up for a course that will help improve your quality of life or your professional status. Dont let anyone stand between you and your goals. An unexpected change will turn out to be beneficial. Let things unfold naturally. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Invite change at home and at work. Start the year off by embracing life and what you want to achieve. Not everyone will be happy with your decisions, but in the end, you are the one in charge of your own happi-ness. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Look at where you are and where you want to go. Set your goals and dont stop until you reach your destina-tion. Your stamina, dis-cipline and fair play will lead to victory. Dont let someones erratic behavior slow you down. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Emotions will surface, causing overdue changes to take place. It wont be smooth sailing, but it will be an adventure that should help you discover new options and a chance to make improvements to your life. Take a deep breath and continue. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Enjoy sharing with friends or your lover. Make suggestions and plans for the future. Use your insight and pro-pose something special that can help you explore and expand new interests. Participation will be key. Make love a priority. +++ Happy Birthday: Searching for progres-sive and unique ways to enhance your life and bring about the change you feel you need in order to explore new avenues can be a risky venture. As long as you dont let impulse take over and you go through the steps required to build a solid base, the sky is the limit. Your numbers are 2, 12, 18, 23, 34, 45, 47.

The existing fa-cility consists of a 70acres closed area and an active 243acre portion consisting of both Class I and Class III waste disposal areas.Permitting Authority: Applications for Title Vair operation permits are subject to review in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 403, Flori-da Statutes (F.S.) and Chapters 62-4, 62-210, and 62-213 of the Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.). The proposed project is not exempt from air permitting requirements and a Ti-tle Vair operation permit is required to operate the facility.

Interested persons may view the draft/proposed permit by visiting the following website: http://www.dep.state.fl.us/air/emission/apds/default.asp and enter-ing the permit number shown above.Interested persons may contact the Permitting Authoritys project re-view engineer for additional infor-mation at the address or phone num-ber listed above.Notice of Intent to Issue Permit: The Permitting Authority gives notice of its intent to issue a renewed Title Vair operation permit to the applicant for the project described above. The applicant has provided reasonable as-surance that continued operation of the existing equipment will not ad-versely impact air quality and that the project will comply with all ap-propriate provisions of Chapters 62-4, 62-204, 62-210, 62-212, 62-213, 62-296 and 62-297, F.A.C. The Per-mitting Authority will issue a final permit in accordance with the condi-tions of the draft/proposed permit unless a response received in accord-ance with the following procedures results in a different decision or a significant change of terms or condi-tions.Comments: The Permitting Authori-ty will accept written comments con-cerning the draft/proposed Title Vair operation permit for a period of 30 days from the date of publication of the Public Notice. Written comments must be received by the close of business (5:00 p.m.), on or before the end of this 30-day period by the Per-mitting Authority at the above ad-dress. As part of his or her com-ments, any person may also request that the Permitting Authority hold a public meeting on this permitting ac-tion. If the Permitting Authority de-termines there is sufficient interest for a public meeting, it will publish notice of the time, date, and location in the Florida Administrative Weekly (FAW). If a public meeting is re-quested within the 30-day comment period and conducted by the Permit-ting Authority, any oral and written comments received during the public meeting will also be considered by the Permitting Authority. If timely received written comments or com-ments received at a public meeting result in a significant change to the draft permit, the Permitting Authori-ty shall issue a revised draft/pro-posed permit and require, if applica-ble, another Public Notice. All com-ments filed will be made available for public inspection. For additional information, contact the Permitting Authority at the above address or phone number.Petitions: Aperson whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accord-ance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within 14 days of publication of the Public Notice or receipt of a written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Sec-tion 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Au-thority for notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. Apetitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. Apeti-tion for administrative hearing must contain the information set forth be-low and must be filed (received) with the Agency Clerk in the Office of General Counsel, 3900 Common-wealth Boulevard, MS 35, Tallahas-see, Florida 32399-3000, Agency.Clerk@dep.state.fl.us, be-fore the deadline. The failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time period shall consti-tute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative determina-tion (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to inter-vene in this proceeding and partici-pate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiat-ed by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in com-pliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.Apetition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Au-thoritys action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and address of each agency af-fected and each agencys file or iden-tification number, if known; (b) The name, address, any email address, telephone number and any facsimile number of the petitioner; the name, address, any email address, tele-phone number, and any facsimile number of the petitioners represen-tative, if any, which shall be the adLegaldress for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an ex-planation of how the petitioners substantial interests will be affected by the agency determination; (c) Astatement of when and how each pe-titioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) Astatement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) Acon-cise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant re-versal or modification of the agen-cys proposed action; (f) Astatement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agencys pro-posed action including an explana-tion of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and, (g) Astatement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agen-cy to take with respect to the agen-cys proposed action. Apetition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authori-tys action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and other-wise shall contain the same informa-tion as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Permitting Authori-tys final action may be different from the position taken by it in this written notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial in-terests will be affected by any such final decision of the Permitting Au-thority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.Mediation: Mediation is not availa-ble for this proceeding.EPAReview: EPAhas agreed to treat the draft/proposed Title Vair operation permit as a proposed Title Vair operation permit and to per-form its 45-day review provided by the law and regulations concurrently with the public comment period, pro-vided that the applicant also trans-mits an electronic copy of the re-quired proof of publication directly to EPAat the following email ad-dress: firstname.lastname@example.org. Al-though EPAs 45-day review period will be performed concurrently with the public comment period, the dead-line for submitting a citizen petition to object to the EPAAdministrator will be determined as if EPAs 45-day review period is performed after the public comment period has ended. The final Title Vair operation permit will be issued after the con-clusion of the 45-day EPAreview period so long as no adverse com-ments are received that result in a different decision or significant change of terms or conditions. The status regarding EPAs 45day re-view of this project and the deadline for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website ad-dress:http://www.epa.gov/region4/air/ permits/florida.htm.Objections: Finally, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2), any person may petition the Administrator of the EPAwithin 60 days of the expiration of the Ad-ministrators 45-day review period as established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of any Title Vair operation permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the 30-day public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPAthat it was impracticable to raise such ob-jections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objec-tion arose after the comment period.Filing of a petition with the Adminis-trator of the EPAdoes not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions filed with the Administrator of EPAmust meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be filed with the Administrator of the EPAat: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.
