AMANDA WILLIAMSON /Lake City ReporterHospital merger still on goWarning shot bill aimed toward passageBy MARGIE MENZELThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE A bill that would grant immunity to Floridians who show guns or fire warning shots in self-defense could be poised to pass this year after failing to get a hearing in 2013. The so-called warningshot bill (SB 448), which would amend the states controversial stand your ground self-defense law, cleared its first Senate panel on Wednesday. After listening to descriptions of Floridians serving 20-year sentences for firing warning shots to defend themselves or others, the Senate Criminal Justice Committee unanimously passed the bill by commit-tee Chairman Greg Evers, R-Baker. One member of the panel, Sen. Charlie Dean, a for-mer Citrus County sheriff, even asked House sponsor Neil Combee to consider adding an amendment that would expunge the criminal records of people charged in this way; Combee said he would.

HMAs board recommended in November that shareholders vote for the sale a deci-sion that will affect at least 24 hospitals in Florida. The deal values Naples-based HMA at $13.78 per share. The companies have put the total value of the cash-and-stock transaction at $7.6 billion, including HMAs $3.7 billion debt.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.com As the Columbia County School District heads into its first week back from the holi-days, the school superintendent said every-thing is on track in terms of finances, testing and student progress. According to superintendent Terry Huddleston the second semester is the final push by teachers to prepare for FCAT and end-of-course exams. The district contin-ues to implement programs and curriculum started in the fall with an emphasis on stan-dards the students may be struggling with. Above all else, every school is safe and every child is learning, Huddleston said. We prepare our students by teaching to the standards, contrary to what people think about teaching to the test. FCAT testingEach school has pacing guides that help teachers with instruction in the weeks lead-ing up to FCAT and advise them to focus on standards they know experienced county-wide deficiencies last year. In addition, teachers are continuing to educate their students on new materials in the second half of the year. Both semesters should be equally rigorous, Huddleston said. If were worried about getting rigorous now to prepare for the assessments, were in sad shape, he said. That goes back to my comment: You cannot teach to the test. FCAT testing starts in late February with FCAT Writing, followed in April with FCAT Reading, Science and Mathematics. Near the end of April, students can expect to begin the spring end-of-course exams. Parents should make sure their children come prepared to school by ensuring they are well-rested. Each child should eat break-fast and maintain a positive attitude. Huddleston believes students should practice those habits at the beginning of the school year. The emphasis on the importance of education should start on the first day of school, not just on FCAT days, he said. Tight financesBefore the Jan. 28 Columbia County School Board meeting, the board will hold a budget workshop to catch up on recent financial changes since the last meeting in early December. The finances are still very, very tight, Huddleston said. It appears we are still slowly making the climb to improve our financial situation. But its a very slow pro-cess. Financial director Bonnie Penner will be present during the workshop to talk about the present state of financial affairs. Specific numbers for how the district is doing will be presented on Tuesday, Jan. 28. On Tuesday, Jan. 14, the board will be presented with the five-year technology net-work workplan to discover how much it will cost to bring the districts digital materials up to date. For example, the schools need to increase bandwidth to meet the state legisla-tive needs on testing online. Currently, the districts biggest challenge is ensuring that it meets ever-changing state requirements such as developing end-of-course exams for every non-state administered test. Looking aheadThe district continues to watch its personnel and who is hired, Huddleston said. He met with staff on Monday and Wednesday to decide what current vacancies are critical. Next week, the district begins Celebrate BACK TO SCHOOL Second semester starts off strong Columbia High School student Lucas Bradley, 17, works on a math problem in Denise Nordmeyers algebra II class on Wednesday.

The Duval County School Board voted Tuesday night to change Nathan B. Forrest High to Westside High. The school has been known as Nathan B. Forrest since 1959. It now carries the name of the neighbor-hood its located in. Area newspapers reported that the vote was unanimous and drew no discussion from board members. The vote ended a decades-long controversy over the schools name. A school advisory council had asked the board to change the name in 2007, but then-board members voted 5-2 against the change. Superintendent Nikolai Vittisaid a poll of students and the community indi-cated that people preferred Westside High to a second option, Firestone High, which is the name of the street where the school is located. New school board rules prohibit naming schools after people. School board members moved to remove Forrests name from the school after public forums and discus-sions. Joan Miller Cooper, an alumna who has advo-cated keeping the old school name, told the school board that the name Westside is too closely associated with the Westside Mafia gang. We all know what effect a bad name can have on students and a school, Cooper said. Theres noth-ing to be proud of there. The school district has estimated that changing signs uniforms and other items will cost about $400,000. But Trey Csar, president of the Jacksonville Public Education Fund, said that is a small amount of the districts $1.5 billion bud-get and shouldnt be rea-son to keep the old school name.Stand Your Ground mom in trouble JACKSONVILLE A Jacksonville woman who spent 21 months in jail after unsuccessfully invok-ing Floridas so-called stand your ground law as a defense for firing a gun at her husband is now facing parole violation charges. Prosecutors say Marissa Alexander violated her home detention by making short trips to places near her home. But Alexanders attorney told area news-papers that each trip was approved by parole super-visors. Alexander was denied immunity under the states self-defense law and sentenced to 20 years in prison. Her conviction was thrown out by an appeals court and a new trial set for next month. The appeals court said the trial judge erred by putting the burden on Alexander to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that she was beaten by her husband and acted in self-defense.Smothering accident kills baby BELLEVIEW Deputies say a 5-week-old north Florida baby is dead after his mother fell asleep with him on her chest and rolled over on him during the night. A man told deputies his girlfriend went to the liv-ing room to wake up her daughter Monday morning and didnt see the baby. The Ocala Star-Banner reports the baby was under the woman, wedged in some cushions. They immediately called 911 and a paramedic pronounced the baby dead at 6:46 a.m. The Department of Children and Families sent an investigator to the scene. No further details were immediately available. Thicke has top-selling song of 2013 NEW YORK R obin Thicke and Justin Timberlake owned 2013 in music. Nielsen Entertainment announced late Tuesday that Timberlakes The 20/20 Experience was the top-selling album with 2.4 million units sold. Thickes ubiquitous Blurred Lines was the best-selling song with 6.4 million tracks sold. Albums sales were down. Only 289.4 million albums were sold in 2013, compared with 316 million a year before. Single tracks also saw a decrease, by 6 percent. Streaming, however, was up 32 percent with 118.1 million streams. The sales figures include data from YouTube, Spotify and other digital outlets. Baauers Harlem Shake topped the year with 489,674,000 streams. New releases from Eminem and Luke Bryan rounded out the top three albums. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Thrift Shop and Imagine Dragons Radioactive placed sec-ond and third on the singles list.12 Years a Slave, Gravity lead film awards LONDON The space thriller Gravity, the unflinching slavery saga 12 Years a Slave and the crime caper American Hustle gained awards-season momentum Wednesday with stacks of nomina-tions for the British Academy Film Awards, Britains equivalent of the Oscars. Gravity received nominations in 11 categories, including best picture; best director, for Alfonso Cuaron; lead actress, for Sandra Bullock; cinematography and spe-cial effects. 12 Years had 10 nominations, including nods for star Chiwetel Ejiofor, supporting perform-ers Lupita Nyongo and Michael Fassbender and director Steve McQueen.Kerrigan to be analyst during Sochi Olympics NEW YORK Nancy Kerrigan will work for NBC during dur-ing the Sochi Olympics, 20 years after she was the story of the 1994 Games because of the rivalry with Tonya Harding that turned violent. The network said Tuesday that the two-time figure skating medalist will contribute to figure skating coverage as an analyst. She will also make appearances on the Today show and Access Hollywood. She will not be doing color commentary on the competi-tions. NBC is also planning a 45-minute report about the attack on Kerrigan before the Lillehammer Olympics by associates of Harding, one of the few times Kerrigan has spoken pub-licly about it. The network hasnt said when that will air yet.

While multiple witness esmany of whom smelled of alcoholreported seeing Bryles with the knife, depu ties could not locate the weap on alegedly used during the incident, the report said. One of the witnesses was so inebriated that he/she post poned writing a sworn state ment until the following morn ing, according to the report. Bryles was allegedly unco operative and kept yelling at deputies during their investiga tion, telling them they needed a search warrant, the report said. Deputies ultimately decided to arrest Bryles and transport him to Columbia County Detention Facility, the report said. Bryles allegedly said he doesnt have a knife in his resi dence and claimed deputies planted a knife at his residence. According to the report, after deputies told them they never found the knife in question, Bryles asked, What did you eat my dinner with last night? Deputies also made note of a strong alcohol odor coming from Bryles during the incident. Bryles was booked into Columbia County Detention Facility on $10,000 bond. He faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. Dean demanded. Combee, a Polk City Republican, first sponsored the bill after hear ing about Marissa Alexander, a Jacksonville woman who was sen tenced to 20 years in prison under the 10-20-Life sentencing law for firing a gun into a wall during a dispute with her husband. Combee described Alexanders sentence as an example of the negative unintended consequenc es of 10-20-Life, which requires mandatory-minimum prison terms for gun-related crimes. Under the 10-20-Life law, possess ing a gun while committing certain crimes is punishable by at least 10 years in prison, discharging a gun while committing those crimes is punishable by at least 20 years in prison, and hurting or killing some one during those crimes is punish able by 25 years to life in prison. The 2013 version of Combees bill sought to amend 10-20-Life rather than stand your ground, and it was opposed by the Florida Sheriffs Association and many prosecutors and law enforcement officers who argued that the sentencing bill was working too well to be altered. So the 2014 bills by Combee and Evers would amend stand your ground instead. The bills, which are identical, would permit people who are being attacked and fear for their lives to display guns, threaten to use the weap ons or fire warning shots under the same circumstances by which they could legally shoot to kill. That switch sped the bill to pas sage in the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee in November. It also gained allies for the bill who did not support it last year, such as the Florida Public Defender Association. We think its an important clari fication to the existing self-defense laws, that someone could be justified in threatening to use force and not have to actually use force to enjoy the protections of the self-defense laws and stand your ground, Stacy Scott, the public defender for the 8th Judicial Circuit, told the Senate panel on Wednesday. The statutes arent clear on that. National Rifle Association lob byist Marion Hammer, who has worked with Combee on the bill since last year, said it was needed to curb prosecutorial abuses under 10-20-Life. Prosecutors are using it wrong ly to prosecute people who, in an act of self-defense or defense of a loved one, threaten to use force because they really dont want to shoot somebody, Hammer said. If you actually shoot an attacker, the law protects you. But if you merely threaten to shoot an attacker and the attacker runs away, some pros ecutors will still try to put you in prison for 10 to 20 years. Some, not all, but any is too many. before the end of the month. HMA executives said in an earlier interview that they dont believe the merger will significantly affect the hospitals day-to-day opera tions. HMA operates or is a partner in 23 hospitals in the state, including Shands at Lake Shore, Shands Live Oak and Shands Starke. CHS owns two Florida hospitals. The merged hospitals may experience a name change, but it is uncertain what the name will be. Jack Berry, Lake Shore Hospital Authority execu tive director, said he doesnt know of any impacts the local hospital would experi ence due to the merger. The hospital will contin ue to act as it has, possibly with more assets, Berry said, adding that the merg er has to be approved by the LSHA board before it can be finalized. However, the board would require just cause to terminate the local merger. Currently, the board has no reason not to approve the transaction, Berry said. On Monday, the board will hold a public meeting to discuss a potential sale of the hospital building. The recent approval of the merger will have no impact on the LSHAs plans, but would place CHS in the perfect place to purchase the build ing should the compa ny wish. If the public reac tion is what we antici pate it to be, we will continue to move for ward with our desire to sell it, Berry said. [The merger] really doesnt affect us. They have a right to do what they want to do. ... We will work with either company. The timeline to an even tual sale of the local hospi tal could take between one to two years. The hospital would then continue to operate as a private facility. As stakeholders dis cussed the sale, a gathering of registered nurses from around the country peti tioned outside the HMA building, asking the com pany not to approve the sale. According to a press release by the National Nurses Organizing Committee, the merger will create a massive hos pital monopoly threatening patient access and quality of care. The billions CHS will spend on the merger is money diverted from safe patient care and improved patient ser vices. After the CHS acquisition of HMA, the com pany will own 206 hospitals in mostly rural areas. It will be the largest hos pital chain in the coun try, making those small communities vulnerable to price gouging and low safety standards, the press release continued. However, Berry finds the complaints hard to believe. This is a huge corpora tion, a very successful cor poration I might add, he said. I just dont see them reducing patient care. In May 2010, Shands Health Care and HMA formed a partnership to jointly own and govern Shands three commu nity hospitals. HMA paid $21.4 million for 60 per cent interest in the three hospitals.

William Avery Geiger, 49, of 1412 SE Putnam St., was also charged with burglary. When Sheriffs deputy Matthew Baucom arrived at a house off Madeliene Terrace, he found Geiger at the front door being pushed out of the residence and told to leave. Baucom asked Geiger to step off the porch to talk for a moment. According to the arrest report, Geiger came to the home to talk to an individual inside. When asked if he was told to leave, Geiger said, No, if he wants me to leave I will leave. Baucom then placed Geiger in handcuffs, situat ing him inside the patrol car. According to Baucoms report, Geiger appeared very intoxicated, requiring assistance from the porch to the car. The homeowner told the deputy that someone knocked on the door, so he got up to see who it was. Geiger was waiting at the front door and asked to come in. The homeowner told him no, but Geiger allegedly began pushing the owner to get inside the house. Geiger pushed his way into the house, so the home owner forced him back onto the porch and shut the door, the report said. Another occupant of the home informed Baucom that Geiger was so drunk that the homeowner easily pushed him out onto the front porch. After Baucom asked Geiger about the accusations, Geiger told him he didnt push anyone, didnt hit any windows and was never asked to leave. Baucom transported Geiger to the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of a $16,000 bond. Man charged with battery, burglary Geiger WARNING Continued From 1A
Leave it to the Obama administration to interpret the Affordable Health Care Acts computer debacle as a call for more government. The Wall Street Journal reports the administration is aiming to hire more technology specialists and create a new federal unit dedicated to big tech projects. It also wants to loosen the burdensome hiring rules, which includes interviewing multiple candidates for every job, so it can bet-ter compete for top personnel. Streamlining the hiring process looks to be appropriate. But we suspect creating a new centralized technology agency will not make Washington more efficient or responsive, even if it attempts to adopt private-sector practices. There are some technological areas the military, the space program where the government has excelled. But it cannot rival the private sector when it comes to responding quickly and economically to con-sumers demands. President Obama would be wise to acknowledge that and see that the best way to avoid monumental technological mishaps is to avoid tasks government shouldnt be per-forming in the first place. To the Editor:I have never been so determined to state my opinion of a photograph published in the Reporter as much as I am today. Todays [Jan. 7] front page photo of four young girls jumping on a mattress was irre-sponsible at best and very danger-ous at worst. Let me explain: where was the little girl jumping from? The roof? The window? (which, incidentally has photographed like it is broken -was it?) Were they also jumping off the pool ladder? Seriously? And dont even get me started on the cactus next to the front door well within landing distance and bigger than the littlest girl in the photo. I know YOU didnt plant it, but again, adding it to the other things wrong with this photo makes it an issue. It would be very easy to put this photo on any number of media vehi-cles bringing attention to the deci-sions made about what to publish or not. Some people would probably get a good laugh at the things I have pointed out that were wrong with it. If one of the girls had been hurt it would be a different story. Obviously. In the future, please have Jason Matthew Walker take pictures of children doing safer things while the weather was warm and consid-er the contents of his photos before he submits them for publication. Then have someone else look over them too. This isnt the first poorly selected photo of his. Please make it his last. I suggest instead that you take more photos of the ducks at Lake DeSoto.

Baxley should let go of a bad idea The obsession with being liked T here are multitudes of books, articles and web-sites which can help all of us to be more liked, and because this is very important to many people, they generally sell like hotcakes. But Id like to present another viewpoint on this subject which may, or may not, be acceptable. Why does a person strive so hard to be liked? What difference does it make if Joe Blow thinks youre a schmuck? Why is his opinion so important to you? If you are inter-viewing for a job or running for public office, it may carry a bit of weight, but otherwise, whats the problem? Little girls are jumping off water towers because some malicious over-indulged snot is posting bad things about them on the internet. Maybe its time to tell young people that what others think about them is not the most important thing about which to obsess. The evil among us commit horrendous acts just because they want to make a name for themselves, and so long as we continue to judge ourselves by what we believe others might think of us, it is impossible to become the unique individual we are meant to be. Which reminds me of a story you knew it would, didnt you? Many years ago, I belonged to a very large Methodist church in a very small town. They had a mag-nificent music director who made choir practice fun, which explains why I was so faithful in attending. However, the womens groups were never enticing enough to muster up any enthusiasm in me, so I avoided them like the plague. That may be why our new ministers wife sought me out to lament the fact that, although she felt obli-gated to attend those groups, she didnt think they liked her. It was worrying her to death that nothing she did seemed to go over well with these women, and she felt she was letting her husband down in the process. I dont know what Dr. T had done to antagonize the Methodist hierarchy enough to send him there in the first place, but it was obvious from the beginning that the Ts were intellectually far superior to anyone else in town, and since small towns usually produce a large number of small people, these women probably felt threatened by her in some way. I dont actually know that for a fact because I never questioned them about it, but I was acquainted with most of them and could surmise as much. Mrs. Ts problem was not so much that she was not liked by this group of women, who were never going to change their non-existent minds anyway, but instead, the problem was that she cared what these Stepford Wives thought. So while the men stayed in the living room doing whatever men do to humor their wives, she and I retired to the dining room to have what some people might call a Jesus moment. I have always disliked people who pretend to be something they arent and have developed a theory which, to this day, I adhere to. I believe (and passed on to her) that every human being develops into four separate entities of which we are not even aware. First of all, we are what God thinks, or more accurately, KNOWS, we are, and surprise, surprise! We cant know exactly what that is, although we will doubtless be judged by it one day. Second, we are what we think we are, and brother and sister, please allow me to buy you for what you really are and sell you for what you think you are. That way, I could shower bushel baskets full of hun-dred of dollar bills on the entire world throughout eternity. Third, we are what other people think we are, but we usually dont know for sure what that is, and would probably rather live on in ignorant bliss anyway. The fourth is the killer of everything dear to the human spirit; that is, what we think other people think we are. Please, read this sen-tence again, and again, and again. Because that is the one Mrs. T was battling in her heart. She cared too much what other people thought, and it was taking over her life by making her believe SHE was lack-ing something instead of those who were criticizing her. Let me say right now that it is not necessary to go around reminding people of their deficiencies, or to speak every derogatory thought that pops into your mind, but I do believe that it is necessary to speak the truth, as you perceive it, wher-ever you can, regardless of what other people might think. And more importantly, when you discover your truth was wrong, as I have done on several occasions, admit it. Do not, and I repeat, do not, follow the example of our President! State Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, has followed through on a dubious promise to try to turn decision-making on monuments in state parks over to the Florida Legislature. It was a bad idea when he proposed it last month, and its a bad idea now that he has actually filed the legislation to make it happen. Wed rather lawmakers focus on bringing in jobs, improving our schools and preserving our natural resources than micromanaging the state park system. His avowed aim?To keep a proposed Union monument off a three-acre state-run par-cel at Olustee Battlefield. The question is, what prompted this sudden interest in a state park well outside his district and 100 miles from his Ocala home? Baxley claims his Southern heritage compels him to weigh in on this local dust-up. His real aim, we suspect, is to garner support for a state senate run in 2016, when incumbent Charlie Dean, R-Inverness, is term-limited out. Whatever the future may hold, Baxley does not at this juncture rep-resent us in the Legislature. The woman who does, Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, has been making steady progress on this thorny matter for nearly a year now. What we dont need is for some opportunistic politician to come in at the 11th hour and spoil things. We would respectfully invite Mr. Baxley to tend to his own affairs and leave ours to us, at least for now.

Seminoles now focused on sustaining success By KAREEM COPELAND Associated Press NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher says winning the national champion ship was the culmination of a four-year process that began when he replaced Bobby Bowden as the head of the program in 2010. The next challenge is to sustain that success. Fisher now finds him self in Bowdens old shoes where titles will be expected from a passionate fan base. Florida State beat Auburn 34-31 Monday night to win its first crown since 1999. Youve got to go back to ground zero and you cant worry about expectations, Fisher said Tuesday. Thats the thing, once expectations get so high, is to not let complacency set in. Its human nature, you take winning for granted. You take success for grant ed, he said. A quick glance at the ros ter shows why Florida State (14-0) will enter 2014 as the favorite. The Seminoles return Heisman quarter back Jameis Winston for his sophomore season and lose just three senior offensive starters. Florida State must replace four senior defen sive starters and Fisher said he thinks there are up to three underclassmen who have decisions to make about a possible move to the NFL. The future is bright, freshman cornerback Jalen Ramsey said. We know what it takes now. We know how it feels. We dont be disappointed next year from not being here. We want to make this thing a dynasty. Florida State is back to where it should always be. That senior class was Fishers first as head coach and was the cornerstone of the new foundation. The 2011 class, however, was widely considered the No. 1 recruiting class in the coun try and one of the best in school history. Then theres the 2012 class that includes Winston, another handful of starters and more young talent that had to wait their turn. This was not an old team that will need to replace starters all over the field. I dont care how talented you are, Fisher maintained. This team has to go back, get its own identity, get its own leadership and develop that, and thats going to be our challenge now. Its how hungry can you stay to be able to do it over and over again, and thats going to be Florida State will look to for consecutive titles.

Ford and Snow had the other winners. Saturdays blitz winners found familiar names at the top of a big field.

However, with so many teams a skin was tough to find. The team of Luther Huffman, Brooke Russell and Jacob Bryant had the only shot at the pot with a skin on a tough pin on No. 17, but the odds prevailed as No. 4 was the lucky number and so the big pot will grow even bigger. Huffmans team did prevail for first-place money.Three teams tied for sec-ond place, with the team of Mike Kahlich, Tiara Carter and Brantley Stevens win-ning in a draw.

Other closest to pin winners were Chuck Slaymaker on No. 3, Chet Carter on No. 5, Jim Munns on No. 11 and Mike Kahlich on No. 17. The Friday Dogfight had a small group due to the cold weather and wind. Chet Carter posted a +4 with a solid round of 73 for the win. Keith Hudson was second at -1. Skin winners were Gerald Smithy, Jack Tuggle and Carter. Closest to the pin was tough in the wind, as only one par 3 was hit by Carter for all the money.

DEAR ABBY: In response to the letter from Family First in Florida (Nov. 3), its no wonder her son and daughter-in-law want some peace and quiet when their new baby arrives. Grandma-to-be appears controlling, entitled and someone who will be more of an endurance test than a helping presence. They are right to set kind, yet firm, boundaries with her. I wanted privacy during and after childbirth, and Im grateful my mom and MIL respected our wishes. I need-ed time to establish a nursing routine, heal and get to know my baby before I was ready to host overnight guests. My kids grandmas both have strong, loving relation-ships with their grandkids, so please remind Family First shes not missing out on anything. Shell still get to be a doting granny, but for now she should back off and remember the arrival of the child is not about HER. EXPERIENCED MOM IN OMAHA DEAR MOM: Im pleased everything worked out well for you. That womans letter hit a nerve with my readers. A sam-pling of their comments: DEAR ABBY: I had the same vision of being there when my grandkids were born. However, my kids have not involved me the way I imagined. Family Firsts son is putting HIS family first, as he should. He and his wife have chosen what they feel will make the smoothest, least-stressful launch for their new family, and he is protecting that plan. If she doesnt respect her sons right to make that decision, she risks jeopardizing her future relationship with him, his wife AND the grandkids. The essence of a mothers love is sacrifice. Its time to put aside her dreams and help her son fulfill his. SUZIE IN OLYMPIA, WASH. DEAR ABBY: The new parents are greatly misin-formed about the impor-tance of having grandpar-ents around just before and immediately after the birth of a new baby. It helps to have a family member in the waiting room to update other fam-ily and well-wishers so Dad can devote full attention to the new mom and baby. My mother was a godsend, taking care of every-thing while we bonded with our child. She did the cooking, the chores, and gave us needed breaks during the day so we were able to tolerate night feed-ings. When our second child arrived, she helped with our older one. Childbirth is difficult. I dont think this new mom realizes she wont be able to do it all. SHANA IN LOUISIANA DEAR ABBY: Has Family First considered that her daughter-in-laws mother may be coming? Unfair as it may seem, in cultures around the world, the role of the paternal grandmother is far different than that of the maternal grandmother. KNOWS FOR SURE IN KENYA DEAR ABBY: My son and DIL told everyone, including the other grand-parents, who live near them, they wanted NO visi-tors for at least six weeks. That sad grandma needs to brush up on her Skype and Facetime skills so she can see them frequently on her computer and phone. We do this with our kids. In the first year, the baby learned our voices and saw our faces often. When we met again, it was like wed always been there. COMPUTER GRANNY DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Dont let impulse lead to a mistake youll regret. Take it easy and bide your time. Refrain from judging when obser-vation is whats required. Focus on what you can accomplish, not what you cannot. Moderation and patience will be crucial. +++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Take your position and make this day count. You have every-thing going for you and mustnt let what others do or say deter you from reaching your set destina-tion. Speak up and make promises that you know will make a difference to someone special. +++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Put your time and effort into something that will help a cause or someone who means a lot to you. Your ability to act quickly and effectively will make an impression. Criticism will be due to jealousy. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Stand your ground. Dont let anyone coerce you into something you dont want to do. Follow your heart and the path you feel fits you the best. You have lots to offer, and if you take action, you will excel. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Expect to face opposition. Listen carefully and proceed to make the chang-es you feel best suit your needs. Hard work will help you advance, but first you should tend to your respon-sibilities to reduce stress and clear the decks. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Mingle, make plans to have fun, and engage in activities that allow you to use your intelligence and agility. Mental and physical stimulation will make you feel good and boost your confidence, as well as your reputation. Love conquers all. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Anger will mount if you are dealing with a partnership problem. Try to concentrate on making your residence more com-fortable or your financial situation easier to handle. Too much of anything will set you back. Work hard; say little. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Check out alternative ideas and youll find unique ways to mar-ket your talent, skills and expertise. Set up meetings and discuss your plans. Travel may cause some conflict, but using reason will help you overcome issues that arise. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): An interesting idea will grab your attention. Discover the ins and outs of whatever you want to pursue and give it your all. A change at home will improve your domes-tic situation but may end up costing more than you expect. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Make an effort at home and it will make a difference to the people who care about you. Dont limit what you can do; just find a different way to approach whatever situation you face in order to reach your destination. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Keep your personal thoughts, habits and situations a secret. The less you let others know about you, the easier it will be to go about your business. The changes you make now will help you in the future. Dont go over budget. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): The contributions you make to a cause, project or partnership that interests you will make a difference. You will gain respect and the confidence of the people you deal with. Romance is in the stars and a commitment can be made. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Thats our nature as humans, its not too grind, its not to push. Thats why there is only one champion at the end, he said. Fisher did get a chance to savor the moment late after the game, surround ed by friends and family in his hotel room. He sat half asleep in a chair, exhausted, and nursed a pulled ham string he sustained running down the sideline and chas ing an official after Auburn wasnt called for a horse collar tackle at the end of a catch-and-run by Rashad Green late in the game. You feel like you want to sleep for about a week after these seasons, Fisher said. Well get back tomorrow and give the staff a day or so and then well get back recruiting and we got to get going. Its time for another one, he said. Twenty years after Florida State won its first nation al championship under Bowden, the Seminoles won the third in school his tory with his successor. The Seminoles broke a string of seven consecutive national champions from the SEC. Now Fisher and Bowden both have an undefeated season on their resumes. Its kind of fitting to me, Fisher said. It was Miami and Florida State every year. They had the teams. They were in it, the Nebraskas, the Oklahomas. The SEC couldnt get in it. But I think its very fitting that Florida State come full circle back and like I say, maybe we dont play in the SEC but we play in the South and weve got good football. Its like the reckon ing. Things are getting back in order again, he said.
