By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe founder and former owner of a website dedicated to helping find missing children was convicted of child molestation Wednesday. A five-man, one woman jury deliberated for about 45 minutes before returning a guilty verdict against Wesley A. Jones, 42, for lewd and lascivious molestation of a child. The conviction stemmed from an incident on July 25, 2012, where he touched a child inappropriately while in a shed near his home that he called his “man cave.” Jones, who had been quiet for most of the trial, calmly looked at deputy court clerk Calley Dekle as she read the verdict. “Hope you all burn in hell,” Former missing-child advocate convicted of child molestation. By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comMissy Zecher started her real estate career in 2007, just as the economy tumbled into a recession. Now, after the market has entered recovery, she is being recognized as the Lake City Realtor of the Year for all her hard work and dedication. Surrounded by fellow real estate agents, bankers and attorneys, Zecher graciously accept-ed the award dur-ing the Wednesday Lake City Board of Realtors luncheon at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites. The event also recognized Daniel Crapps with the Realtor Emeritus Award, introduced the 2014 Board of Realtors president Susan Eagle and installed the 2014 board and officers. “I absolutely love this business,” Zecher said. “My husband is a builder, so I know home sales. Putting people in good homes is our family’s passion. ...

Police detained Corey Walter Dortly, 21, of 322 NE Bickel Drive, after the victim identi-fied him as the man who held him at gunpoint with a faded blue .380 caliber Beretta around 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, the arrest report said. The victim, a 29-yearold white male, was leav-ing Scaff’s Food Store near NW Main Boulevard and NW Long Street when three men passed him in the parking lot, sling-ing racial slurs at him, the report said. The victim, traveling by bike on NW Long Street, was approached by the three men again, police said. When one of the men, Dortly, approached him and asked “What money you got on you, cracker,” the victim told the alleged robber to mind his own business, according to the report. The victim recalls Dortly then brandishing a “small caliber grayish color semi-automatic pistol” and said to him “I got my pistol, I’ll burn you, cuz,” police said. The victim fled on his bike and called the police from a nearby convenience store, the report said. Police returned to the area and found three men matching the description given by the victim, includ-ing the alleged gunman, police said. According to the report, the alleged gunman said he “saw two jits” aggravating a white male but denied hav-ing any knowledge of the incident. Police said they arrested Dortly without further incident. Dortly REALTORS continued on 3A DORTLY continued on 6A GUILTY continued on 3A Jones

The News-Press of Fort Myers reports a two-man crew is following Juergen Schmidt, 51, a firefighter from Germany, for a show called “Achtung Kontrolle!” The show is one of the most popular reality shows aired on Kabel 1 in Germany. The segment could air in March. The hour-long show features 15-minute seg-ments on people who work in either law enforcement or other high-risk profes-sions. A crew arrived in southwest Florida last week to follow Schmidt as he goes about his work as a first responder. They got a close-up look during a 24-hour shift as the fire-fighters aided a woman who had fallen and injured herself to saving the life of a small child who was not breathing. Schmidt speaks fluent German. He explained on camera what the firefight-ers experienced, as long as patients give their permis-sion. “A lot of Germans have a house here or live here or they come on vaca-tion,” said editor Thomas Luecke. “When they can, they move into the warmth. They love Cape Coral, they love reports from Florida and they love to see Juergen sweat in the sun and work.”Baby boom at Gulf Breeze Zoo GULF BREEZE — The Gulf Breeze Zoo is experi-encing a baby boom. Since October, the zoo has welcomed several babies, including a hippo, two kangaroos, two bongos and a giraffe. The Northwest Florida Daily News reports the zoo’s youngest animal is Gamba, a giraffe born Nov. 10. He’s grown more than 2 feet since his birth and is beginning to eat whole foods. “He definitely has his own personality,” said Tenielle Welch, curator at the zoo in the Florida Panhandle. “He likes to do what he wants to do and you can’t make him do any-thing else.” She says visitors are always asking about Gamba. “He’s at a fun stage. He’s learning to taste, discover. He’s figuring out how his body works.” The other babies are also thriving in their new envi-ronment.Career can’t offset texting murder WESLEY CHAPEL — A Florida sheriff says a retired Tampa police officer’s praiseworthy career doesn’t offset the severity of the charge that he shot and killed another man after an argument at a movie theater over texting. Curtis Reeves, 71, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 43-year-old Chad Oulson on Monday. Reeves was ordered held without bond Tuesday pending another hearing. As a police officer for more than two decades until his retirement in 1993, Reeves regularly received outstanding eval-uations and numerous let-ters of commendation for his leadership skills and training he led for other agencies on gun safety and other topics. Still, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said Tuesday: “It didn’t matter what he had done previ-ously in his life. You don’t shoot someone over a tex-ting incident.” As a police officer, Reeves was often praised for his problem-solving and ability to manage stressful situations. “Captain Reeves not only has the ability to act deci-sively when necessary but has the foresight to initiate the proper course of action to avoid conflict,” a super-visor remarked in one job performance review.Pine wants more from US before Sochi BEVERLY HILLS C hris Pine says the U.S. should have done more in the run-up to the Sochi Olympics to protest Russia’s anti-gay legislation, which he calls “clearly awful, archaic, hostile non-sense.” “I think we should do more than just send gay Olympians there,” the 33-year-old actor said in an interview while promoting his film “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.” ‘’What’s happening there in terms of gay rights or the lack of it is extraordinary and awful.” Pine’s character tries to thwart a terror attack on the U.S. that originates in Russia and takes on a powerful Russian tech magnate in his new movie, opening Friday. It’s based on the late author Tom Clancy’s work but doesn’t revolve around the plot of any single book. The Ryan character, portrayed in previous films by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck, was originally a CIA operative working during the Cold War. The new Ryan faces a different land-scape. “It’s not like the Bay of Pigs where nuclear war is going to start at the drop of a hat. At least it’s not there,” Pine said of current U.S.-Russia relations. The Russian law on “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations among minors” was signed into law by President Vladimir Putin last year. Originally titled the law on “homosexual propaganda,” the bill criminalizes public expression of support for nontraditional relation-ships. The U.S. is sending openly gay former Olympic athletes Billie Jean King, Brian Boitano and Caitlin Cahow to the opening ceremony of the Sochi Olympics, which start Feb. 7. Sophia Bush grows up with ‘Chicago P.D.’ NEW YORK — Sophia Bush is happy to be hanging with grown-ups. She spent nine years on the CW series “One Tree Hill,” which fol-lowed a group of young people from their teens into their twenties. Now the 31-year-old actress plays a cop closer to her own age on NBC’s “Chicago P.D.,” airing Wednesdays (10 p.m. EST). “Finally!” she exclaimed in a recent interview when asked about what it means to make the transition. “When you’re working on a show whose subject matter is deemed to be teen, even though it evolved out of that, there’s still an energy to it that can be very frustrating as an adult human being and it was really hard for a lot of us,” she said. “As the years went on we felt that we were growing and our charac-ters were growing but there was still this really terrible high-school bully energy.” “Chicago P.D.” is a spinoff of the NBC series “Chicago Fire.” It focuses on the Intelligence Unit of the Chicago Police Department. The show is produced by Dick Wolf, creator and executive producer of the “Law & Order” franchise. While Wolf’s shows usually fall in the procedural category, Bush says “it’s different than any cop show I’ve ever seen.” It’s “not black and white, hero and villain,” she said. “It’s muddy and it’s gray. ... None of our heroes are perfect.” Wednesday: Afternoon: 6-2-1 Wednesday: Afternoon: 1-8-3-3 Tuesday: 8-14-32-33-34 HOW TO REACH USMain number ........(386) 752-1293 Fax number ..............752-9400Circulation ...............755-5445Online... www.lakecityreporter.comThe Lake City Reporter, an affiliate of Community Newspapers Inc., is pub-lished Tuesday through Friday and Sunday at 180 E.

Over her five years in the business, Zecher has worked very hard to build her business. She is also an active partici pant in Columbia County Schools, volunteering for classrooms, the Robotics Club and CHS football booster club. Along with her husband, Bryan Zecher, Missy is a member of the Lake CityColumbia County Chamber of Commerce. Bryan Zecher wished his wife a big congratulations for win ning the award. As a family and a hus band, were very proud of her accomplishments and what she has done in the last five years, he added. The Realtor of the Year Award, former president Stan Batten said, is not a popularity contest. Its an honor given to real estate agents in Columbia County who best exhibit the quali ties that best exemplify the profession. Susan Eagle, 2014 President for the Board, said shes very excited to take over Stan Battens former position. She has served on the board for 25 years. I really look forward to the new year, Eagle said. All the projections that weve heard in our meet ings have been very posi tive. Florida is projected to be the third most popu lated state in the county. ... 1,500 people per day moved into Florida. I wish they all move to Lake City. In addition to announcing Eagle as the new president for the board, the luncheon also installed the rest of the members for the board and for the North Florida Multiple Listing Service board. Pam Beauchamp was announced as president elect of the Lake City Board of Realtors and Susan Sloan as the secre tary. Board members for 2014 are Darrell Hunt, Anita Handy, Vic Lantroop, Samantha Prueter, Robin Schwartz, Kellie Shirah and Jeff Taylor. During the meeting, realtor Daniel Crapps announced Lisa Hicks as president of North Florida MLS, and Nancy Rogers as the vice president and secretary. Board directors for 2014 are Heather Craig, Amber Roberts Crawford, Thom Duncan, Martha Jo Khachigan, Gary Thomas, Elaine Tolar and Missy Zecher. After 40 years in the realtor business, Daniel Crapps was honored at the luncheon with a Realtor Emeritus Award. He became a realtor in June 1973 after graduating from the University of Florida. When we first started, we had no cell phones, no lockboxes and no MLS, Crapps said. Back then, we spent all our time run ning from office to office to get keys. You show up to a house to show it, and the people didnt show up so you had to run to a conve nience store to get on a pay phone to call the office to see if they had called. And, we were lost half the time. Crapps originally start ed in the business at the Coolidge Davis Real Estate office in Gainesville. Shortly after, he opened his own business in Live Oak in 1975 and then in Lake City in 1983. Over the years, Crapps said he has made a lot of friends and seen a lot of happy cus tomers. To him, the most rewarding part of the job is seeing the excitement of his customers when they purchase their first home. I wouldnt do anything else, he said. I plan on having my retirement and funeral the same day.

Many of the juvenile accusers burst into tears following Jones comment. After he was cuffed he began crying as he was led from the courtroom. John Durrett, the assistant state attorney prosecuting the case, opposed any bond for Jones and asked that he be remanded to Columbia County Sheriffs Office custody, which he was. Durrett headed upstairs to the State Attorneys Office with the victims and their families after the verdict was read. I thought the verdict was fair and just, he said. I am satisfied with the verdict. The next step in the case is Jones sentencing, preliminarily set for 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 10. In the meantime the Department of Corrections will prepare a presentencing investigative report, which is confidential, but will be presented to the court to aid in its determination of an appropriate sentence. Jones was represented by Cliff Wilson, assistant regional counsel with the Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel for Region 1. The jury heard it (the case). I respect the decision of the verdict. I may not agree with the decision of the jury, but I respect the ver dict, he said. Wilson said he plans to file an appeal to the First District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee. Wednesdays proceedings began with Columbia County Sheriffs detective Keith Spradley testifying, and he remained on the stand most of the day. During his testimony he played two audio recordings from inter views with Jones immediately following the incident and later showed a video of Jones being interviewed at the sheriffs office. The interviews, which were edited for content relevant to the trial, re-affirmed Jones as thenowner and president of the Be On The Lookout For website and corporation. Jones was the sub ject of stories on local websites and a radio interview where his fundraising efforts were featured. Durrett noted the website had no officials ties to the government or law enforcement. The two audio recordings lasted approximately 45 minutes each, while the video interview lasted for roughly 90 minutes. During the audio interviews Jones told what he remembered about the night of the offense to Spradley and a Department of Children and Families investigator. When the DCF investigator asked Jones whether he touched the child inappropriately he responded: 12year-olds dont exactly turn me on, he said. When the investigator asked whether he put his hand under her shirt and touched her, Jones said he wasnt sure. On July 27, 2012, Jones was interviewed at the sheriffs office for more than two hours by Det. Katina Dicks and Spradley. Dicks repeatedly asked Jones whether he touched the child and he continued to say he didnt recall touching her and he didnt touch her.

BY EMAIL: ‘March’ ready to hit stride New York’s sudden left turn N ew York City is a cultural center, a com-merce center, a finance center, a media center and every now and then an ideological inanity center. Its voters proved as much in elect-ing as mayor Bill de Blasio, an income equality kind of guy who just could become the next John Lindsay, a mayor who helped make a great city a sad city until other mayors, after a long, hard climb, finally made it great again. “Some on the far right continue to preach the virtue of trickle-down economics,” he said in his inaugural speech. “They believe that the way to move forward is to give more to the most fortunate, and that some-how the benefits will work their way down to everyone else.” What utter buffoonery this is. What defenders of free markets preach is the virtue of freedom that helps create prosperity while giving us all more of a chance to pursue the kind of life we want. It is the left that preaches a trickle-down theory by which an ever bigger, ever more coercive government grabs money from taxpayers and passes it on in welfare programs that would be less needed if there was less inter-vention in the first place. What’s most vitally needed to help the poor are such cultural changes are far fewer fatherless homes and politi-cal changes that unleash the saving power of the market place. Governmental trickle-down, however, is the de Blasio theme. Whichever direction the rich or the unwary turn, he wants to take their cash and sprinkle it on someone else, sometimes the poor. To finance more prekindergarten programs in the city, he wants higher city income taxes on those making more than $500,000 a year. He wants to take money from char-ter schools, which are not rich, to spend on other schools. I am not sure how he’s going to finance it, but I’ve also read in a roundup of promises that he wants to do sweet-deal favors for the city’s unions. On top of that, he apparently wants to swipe money from park programs financed privately to spend on other park programs, and he wants a minimum wage hike. Ah, the minimum wage. It’s the answer to all the woes of the poor, isn’t it? No. It affects relatively few of the poor, the good it does is mini-mal and more economists think its harm outdoes its good than those who think otherwise, according to at least one survey. I have nothing against being fair to city workers, but you have to be fair to taxpayers, too, and promis-ing public employees too much has gotten scads of municipalities into devastatingly deep trouble. New York’s charter schools have report-edly done a pretty good job and the main thing about them, it’s said, is that they offer variety in a system that needs more. Prekindergarten programs can be greatly beneficial if done right and if there is follow-up in the K-12 public schools. But New York State’s liberal governor, Mario Cuomo, says such a program can be otherwise financed, and listen: Combined state, federal and local taxes in the state are already among the highest in the nation and that could be at least one reason many residents are fleeing and often going instead to Florida, which has no state income tax. Some remember him as a shining star, but New York’s liberal Mayor Lindsay demonstrated in the late 1960s and early 1970s that it just does not work to fatten government through putting the private sector on too strict a diet. Some observers believe he contributed to a decline not dramatically reversed until two relatively conservative mayors – Rudolph Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg – came along. De Blasio seems to want to go back to the bad old days and you have to hope he either sees the light or his policy dreams are thwarted. TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1547, Ivan IV of Russia (popularly known as “Ivan the Terrible”) was crowned Czar. In 1883, the U.S. Civil Service Commission was established. In 1920, Prohibition began in the United States as the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution took effect, one year to the day after its ratification. In 1935, fugitive gangster Fred Barker and his mother, Kate “Ma” Barker, were killed in a shootout with the FBI at Lake Weir. In 1942, actress Carole Lombard, 33, her mother Elizabeth and 20 other people were killed when their plane crashed near Las Vegas, Nev., while en route to California from a war-bond promotion tour. In 1944, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower took command of the Allied Expeditionary Forces in London. In 1969, two manned Soviet Soyuz spaceships became the first vehicles to dock in space and transfer personnel. In 1978, NASA named 35 candidates to fly on the space shuttle, including Sally K. Ride, who became America’s first woman in space, and Guion S. Bluford Jr., who became America’s first black astronaut in space. In 1991, the White House announced the start of Operation Desert Storm to drive Iraqi forces out of Kuwait. In 2003, the space shuttle Columbia blasted off under extremely tight security for what turned out to be its last flight; on board was Israel’s first astronaut, Ilan Ramon. Q Associated Press F or the next 79 days, folks here and across the land will be gear-ing up for the March for Babies, the culmination of the annual fundraising effort by the March of Dimes. This year, the local chapter is shooting to increase donations by at least 10 per-cent over 2013. We wish them success.The March of Dimes has made great strides since 1938. The focus is no longer polio, but rather ensuring healthy, full-term pregnancies. And their efforts are sorely needed.In the Suwannee River Valley alone, 13.4 percent of all births are premature, and four babies die before their first birthday. Progress isn’t always as fast as one would like, but it does arrive. The March goes on, saving newborns every day. Proposed MFLs inadequate To the Editor:The Ichetucknee Alliance, a new group created to restore, protect and preserve the Ichetucknee River system, has been watching with interest the Suwannee River Water Management District’s process of setting minimum flows and levels (MFLs) for the Lower Santa Fe and Ichetucknee rivers. It is interesting but not surprising that the Suwannee River Water Management District, the St. Johns River Water Management District and the Florida Springs Institute have all reached different conclu-sions about flow levels and MFLs in these two rivers. That is, after all, how science works. Scientists examine a problem and reach dif-ferent conclusions before they eventually come to agreement. Because science can be an imperfect process and because the Ichetucknee River is a vitally impor-tant part of the economy and social fabric of our area, the Alliance pro-motes the idea of the Precautionary or Conservative Principle: In situ-ations where science is uncertain and there exists the potential to cause great environmental damage, we are justified in choosing the action that causes the least amount of harm. We do not believe that the current process conforms to this principle and we do not believe that this process has resulted in MFLs that will accomplish our goal of restoring flow to the Ichetucknee River. The Alliance is also deeply concerned about the track record of MFL enforcement in Florida. Clearly, the MFL process is worse than useless without rigorous moni-toring, enforcement and adjust-ment. Typically, the establishment of MFLs has been used to justify the current patterns of consump-tive use of the sort that have led to reduced flows in the Ichetucknee. In Keystone Heights, for example, new and lower MFLs are being pro-posed even after lake levels have continued to fall. There is also an unspoken ethical question at the heart of the MFL process: Does our generation have the right to deprive future genera-tions of a natural system that has existed for thousands of years? The proposed MFLs are woefully inadequate to achieve our goals; however, we appreciate that after many years of waiting the MFLs are finally being set because we real-ize that the Ichetucknee River has no protection without MFLs. We especially appreciate the creation of a Recovery Plan that is a critically important official acknowledgement of the degradation and continuing threats faced by the Ichetucknee, which is Outstanding Florida Water. When the MFLs are set and the Recovery Plan is officially adopted, the Alliance stands willing, ready and able to work with the water management districts to meet and then exceed the goals of the Recovery Plan. At the same time, we plan to be a force for account-ability in the implementation of that plan and a strong voice advocating for the restoration, protection and preservation of the Ichetucknee River.

He was paramount in bring-ing about the Civil Rights Act and the Voters Rights Act.” The students involved in the Excel and Scholars Program and the Youth for Christ Ministry selected Dr. Brooke Mobley as the key-note speaker for the MLK breakfast. Mobley is a staff physician at DaVita Kidney Specialists of North Florida in Lake City, where she spe-cializes in Nephrology and Hypertension. She gradu-ated from Philadelphia College Osteopathic Medicine in 2008, and obtained her Master of Business Administration from St. Joseph University. Mobley completed her two-year nephrology fellowship in 2013. Themed “One Man, One Dream, One Legacy,” the breakfast will feature Mobley’s speech and then honor several local physi-cians. In addition, the event will feature several children from the EXCEL program and ministry. Students will be conducting the prayer and hosting the event. A seventh-grader from Tampa, Devon Guice, will play the violin. “You get the kids involved so they can learn their his-tory, learn about Dr. King’s accomplishments,” Presley said.”It was not one-sided. It was an integrated move-ment. Dr. King’s movement helped break down the walls of discrimination in America.” Dr. Tony Buzzella, a local musician, will be the featured entertainment. Tickets will be sold for $20 each and can be purchased from Glynnell, Sharyn or Bernice Presley. They can be reached at 386-752-4074 or 386-719-4389.

After falling to Oakleaf High on the road last week, Jefferson admit ted that the Tigers were down, but they were far from out. As Jefferson had said all year long, he continued to praise his team and say that they could contend for a district title. He also admitted that they would need some help. But the most important thing for the Tigers was taking care of their own business. Columbia needed wins this week against Gainesville and Oakleaf high schools to have a chance at forcing a tie at the top of the district. So far the Tigers are 1-for-1 after Columbia defeated Gainesville, 60-59, on Tuesday. Right now, we are trying to end up in a three-way tie for first place, Jefferson said. Oakleaf and Gainesville will play against next week. We dont want to take away anything from those two teams, because we still have our own busi ness to take care of. The Tigers fell, 78-73, to the Knights last week. A win this week will put Columbia squarely back in the mix. Were trying to make it a mess at the top, Jefferson said. Had we beat Oakleaf last week, we might have been by ourselves. As it stands, were fighting to create a three-way tie. I think were capable of doing that. Jefferson didnt want to take anything away from Oakleaf as he knows that the Knights will pres ent a challenge when they come into Lake City at 7:30 p.m. tonight. Still, the coach knows that a win helps the Tigers in the bigger picture. Our destiny is not in our hands, but we still have a chance, Jefferson said. This game will help determine our seeding and the location of the district tour nament. We want to host the tournament. The winner of the District 2-6A regular season will host the dis trict tournament. Jefferson believes that Oakleaf and Gainesville are similar teams in style. Theyre similar to Gainesville in that they want to come out the gate fast, he said. We have to assert ourselves like we did the other night. We didnt shoot as many 3pointers, but we ran the floor and made a lot more lay-ups. Jefferson wants the Tigers to be able to play like that again against Oakleaf and not rely on the 3-pointers like Columbia did in its last matchup. Getting in our basic offense and scoring from the elbow is able to create confidence, Jefferson said. Having that confidence early against Gainesville really allowed us to take off. You know, Columbia wants to force tie for top of district standings. CHS continued on 4B By BRANDON FINLEY FORT WHITE Fort White Highs basketball team took another step toward an undefeated reg ular season with a blow out win against Suwannee High on Tuesday. The Indians are unde feated in the regular sea son, not including tourna ment games, and hold a 15-2 record. On Tuesday, the Indians met a tough opponent with Florida commitment Kevarries Hayes and the Suwannee High Bulldogs. Fort White was not fazed. The Indians dominated throughout and came away with a 73-49 win against Hayes and the Bulldogs. We played with more intensity, Fort White head coach Isiah Phillips said. It really came down to the basics and block ing out and rebounding. We know that they have a big kid, but we wanted to keep him out of the box. Thats what hurt us in the tourney. We wanted to focus on crashing the board and that didnt allow him to get into a rhythm. We put more pressure on him, because we knew that everything would go through him. Hayes was limited to 12 points in the contest. Fort White looked like it had the best player on the floor throughout the game as Jalen Wyche scored 24 points in the contest. Wyche was his best from long distance as he connected from 3-point range six times. Jalen, the one thing about him, is that hes a spark, Phillips said. Even when hes not shooting well, I tell him to keep shooting, because when he is hitting them hes able to step out and has range. Phillips added that one thing that has made the Indians a tough outing is that they are a team with a host of players that can hurt opponents. We are a team with bal ance and thats hard to defend, Phillips said. Qurin Porter was second on the Indians in scoring with 17 points in the contest. Paul Perry had nine points, Melton Sanders had eight points and Chris Cottrell had two points. It was a good team effort, Phillips said. The good thing is that we still have peaked. We have to remember to stay hungry and not get the big head. The only thing that mat ters is the district. Fort White will round out the week with two dis trict contests and thats where Phillips wants the Indians to end strong. Thats our main focus, Phillips said. Although our district host has been predetermined and it will be at Bradford, were still playing for seed. The main reason that its not deter mined by the top team is INDIANS continued on 4B

The Lady Tigers came out strong, but a sloppy second quarter led to Lafayette picking up a 41-36 win. “It was a tough loss,” Columbia head coach Michael Reynolds said. “We lost focus after the first quarter. We were prepared to handle their pressure. I, as the coach, take responsi-bility for that.” The Lady Tigers were led by Lona Wilson with 13 points in the contest. Akiria Richburg and Au’maria Kelly each had seven points in the game. “Lona Wilson continued to show big improvement by being a big presence inside for us,” Reynolds said. The Lady Tigers led, 124, at the end of the first quarter, but after being out-scored 15-4 in the second quarter went into the half down 19-16. Teyonnia Blake led all scorers in the game with 25 points. Columbia is 5-14 on the year, while Lafayette improved to 9-9 on the season. The Lady Tigers return to the court at Oakleaf High at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.


DEAR ABBY: I have been seeing a guy, “Karl,” for eight months now, and we have never had sex. After two or three months, I brought up the subject. He said he was stressed because he had just lost his job. He also said there is never any privacy at his place because he has room-mates/tenants. I offered to go to my place, but he said that with my son there, it’s the same issue. Karl says he’s very attracted to me, but doesn’t want our “time” together to be ruined by his current money prob-lems. I told him I under-stood and I have waited. I also explained that it makes me feel insecure and unwanted. He now has a job, but we still haven’t had sex. He has, in the interim, told me he loves me and wants to marry me. I con-stantly worry that there’s someone else and wonder what’s wrong with me. I love Karl, too, but I don’t know what to do. Please help. — LOVE, BUT NO SEX IN NEW JERSEY DEAR LOVE, BUT: Is there any intimacy AT ALL in your relationship with Karl? Is he affection-ate? Is there any physical response when he holds and kisses you? If the answer is no, your boy-friend may have a physical or emotional problem, be asexual or gay. Before agreeing to marry him, I recommend you schedule some time alone together by spending a few romantic weekends at a hotel or motel. It may give you a better idea of what your future would be like if you two decide the tie the knot. DEAR ABBY: I am a 30-year-old gay man who works in an office with 20 women. In the five years I have worked here, many of my co-workers have either gotten married or had chil-dren. Our office has a tradi-tion of throwing showers for the lucky ladies, and I am always asked to contribute money toward food for the party or an extravagant gift. While I’m happy to donate to a charity or help a friend in need, I wonder if a wedding or a baby show-er would be given for ME? Am I selfish for feeling hesitant to donate money or gifts when it’s likely the favor will never be returned? — MINORITY MALE IN TEXAS DEAR MINORITY: I don’t think you are selfish for feeling the way you do. In fact, it’s understandable. However, in the case of a wedding or baby shower, people give gifts as a way of offering congratulations and good wishes. And I would hope that, even if same-sex marriage isn’t recognized by the state of Texas, that your co-workers would do something to honor you if you had a spiritual ceremo-ny, which some religious denominations offer. DEAR ABBY: I am turning 60 and naturally looking a little “worn.” My man friend keeps telling me I need a facelift and to lose 10 pounds, so I’m starting to save my money. Something tells me he wants a “hot chick” and thinks he’ll have one once I get these procedures done. It’s expensive. What do you think? — LOOSE-FACED LOUISIANAN DEAR LOUISIANAN: It’s not only expensive; as with any other major surgery, there is some risk involved. If you had said you wanted cosmetic surgery because YOU thought you needed it, I would say to go ahead. However, if it’s only because your man friend is pushing you, then he should save HIS money and offer to foot the bill. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): You have the discipline to get things done, but your emotional outlook may cause some problems with someone who has the power to influ-ence your future. An inno-vative look at the situation will help you find the best response. ++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): There is no time to waste. Deadlines must be met and energy levels must remain consistent. You have plenty to gain if you bring your best game to the competition. Less said and more done will confirm you can take charge. ++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Listen to advice and follow through with adding a unique touch. Take care of a money matter before it ruins your credit, a relation-ship or your reputation. Connecting with someone from your past can lead to alternative ways to earn money. ++++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Live in the moment and forget the past. By making new choices, you will find ways to rediscover some of the things that make you hap-piest. Romance is high-lighted and spending time socializing will enhance your personal life and atti-tude. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Choose your battles and your allies and focus on your strengths and des-tinations. The journey you begin will lead to specific changes that will need nur-turing. Prepare to give your all and see matters through to the end. Success will be yours. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Make whatever you do enjoyable. Take initia-tive and you’ll find a way to spread your happiness around and encourage others to follow suit. Your influence on the people you deal with will make your life easier and your future brighter. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Use your intuitive insight when dealing with partners, friends and fam-ily. Read between the lines and you’ll discover who is with you and who is not. Let your emotions set the standard. It’s time to regulate instead of being controlled. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Pick a destination that will lead to knowl-edge, and head in that direction. You will benefit from the interactions you have with people sharing your interests or expertise. Love is in the stars and romance should be planed for the evening hours. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Ask questions and show interest. The more information you gather, the easier it will be to make a decision. A money deal may be met with opposition. Listen to what’s being said and it may save you a bundle. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t feel pressured to make a choice or decision. Take your time and make it clear that you will not be bullied or coerced into anything. A strong will is required if you are going to avoid loss and maintain control. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Revisit your strategy regarding work, money and moving for-ward. A change will do you good, but it may be necessary to pick up addi-tional skills or information to do so. Be patient and do what’s required of you. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Do whatever it takes to make an impres-sion. Expect to receive money or a gift or see a debt fulfilled. Share an idea and you will receive an interesting comment that will help you expand and pursue your goal. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

In the later part of the game, we kind of refrained from doing that. We had some blocks, and those are nice. I’d rather have a charge than a block, however, because if we block a shot, we only have a chance of getting the ball back. If we draw a charge, we get the ball back and they gain a foul. Still, we played gritty defense and that’s what we have to do.” Jefferson doesn’t believe that Oakleaf will come into the game overlooking the Tigers. “I think they’ll come out knowing that we’re a team capable of putting up a fight,” Jefferson said. “Last time, we showed that we could fight, but we didn’t show up to the fight until late. They won’t walk in thinking they’re going to roll over us or that the fourth quarter was a fluke. I think their kids will be ready to play and we’ll be ready to play.” And Jefferson hopes that the Tigers can ride the momentum of what he believes is one of the big-gest wins Columbia has had in his tenure as head coach. “Tre (Simmons) told me that Wolfson his sopho-more year was the biggest win of his career, but after last night, he said that was the biggest,” Jefferson said. “It was the No. 3 team in the state. We have to fol-low that and do what we’re supposed to do. We have to execute to pull one out (tonight).” JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Kelvin Jonas dribbles up the court in a game earlier this season. because that’s the way it was last year and it was on our floor. The teams com-plained that the floor was slick. We really wish it was that way, because of what the home field advantage would create.” Still, the Indians have a crowd that goes where the game is and Phillips is glad to have the community support. “Our fans have been dedicated,” Phillips said. “It’s good to go to other places and have just as many fans as they do. We may have more. They’ve done a super job and it always makes a huge difference to our guys on the floor.” Fort White travels to Interlachen High at 7:30 p.m. tonight and to Keystone Heights High at 7 p.m. on Friday.

From rematches to revivals to redemp tion, its not a good idea to bet against Peyton Manning when it comes to second chances. He has 97 touchdown throws since hooking up with John Elway in Denver two years ago after the Indianapolis Colts released him when neck troubles clouded his football future. After dispatching San Diego Sunday on the anniversary of last years crushing loss to Baltimore in eerily similar circumstances, Manning stands one win from a shot at becoming the first quar terback to win Super Bowls with two franchises. Standing in his way are Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, who beat the Broncos 34-31 in overtime in November. Thing is, its been six years since Manning lost a rematch to a team that beat him earlier in the season. The Broncos (14-3) lost just once at home this season, when they became the highest-scor ing team in the Super Bowl era, propelled by Mannings record 55 TD throws and 5,447 yards through the air. That was back on Dec. 12, when they were upset by San Diego, a loss they avenged Sunday by beating the Chargers 24-17. The last time Manning lost twice in a row to the same team was in 2007, when the Colts lost 23-21 at San Diego in November and then dropped a 28-24 heart breaker at home in the wild-card playoffs. Since then, Manning has won five straight rematches, including the AFC championship against the Jets 30-17 following the 2009 season, avenging a 29-15 loss in Week 16 that ended Indys shot at a perfect season. It took a vintage performance from Manning on Sunday to keep that streak going. After controlling the game for 3 quarters, the Broncos allowed 17 fourth-quarter points after los ing shutdown cornerback Chris Harris Jr. to a torn ACL. The Broncos were facing thirdand-17 from their own 20 with three minutes left and Rivers loos ening up his right arm on the Chargers sideline, ready for his chance to tie this one just like the Ravens had a year earlier on their way to a 38-35 win in doubleovertime. It was deja vu, Elway, now the Broncos executive vice presi dent, said on his weekly podcast on the teams website Tuesday. As Manning took the snap and stepped up, the pocket began to collapse around him, but he spot ted tight end Julius Thomas open along the Broncos sideline. The pass was perfect, as was Thomas tap dance until his momentum took him out of bounds at the 41. Then, on third-and-6 from his 45, Manning hit Thomas for a 9-yard gain over the middle with 2:12 left. A year ago, then-offensive coordinator Mike McCoy called for a run by undersized Ronnie Hillman on third-and-7 at about the same point in the game, which in turn led to Joe Flaccos 70-yard touchdown heave to Jacoby Jones over Rahim Moore with 31 sec onds left. This was the ultimate second chance, and Manning made good on it. Julius and I have spent a lot of time working on those particular routes, after practice, in practice, Manning said. And thats one of the most rewarding parts of foot ball, when you put that work in, off to the side and after practice, and it pays off for you in a game ... those two plays were certainly worth the hard work.
