Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade on Monday. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON Sometimes in life, people have to shake things up to make change happen, said Rev. Lantz Mills at a Sunday evening church service in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. For much of Kings life, he shook things up after graduating from college, after moving to Atlanta, after organizing march after march. Eventually, he changed the world. In his honor, the local chapter of the NAACP held an MLK program at the Newday Spring Missionary Baptist Church Sunday. Elected offi cials, school board members and the community joined the evening ser vice, which was presided by County Commissioner Ron Williams. In the theme of the event, Mills spoke about how to act when youve been set free. When was the last time you cel ebrated being free? he asked. We celebrate everything else, but we never take time to celebrate Jesus. We turn Christmas into a holiday about gifts, and not the Gift who came to take away the sins of the world. Being free in the name of Christ creates freedom for individuals to worship, to praise and to call on His name, Mills added. But the focus of his sermon was what one should do when he or she has been set free: Praise the Lord, send prayer to the Lord and recognize his power. The truth of the matter is that the Lord has to keep us in some stuff because if it wasnt for the stuff we were in, we would not worship him as we should, he said. There is one thing we as humans share alike, and that is that no matter what car you drive, no matter where you live, no matter what job you work, no matter what rests in your investments, we are all acquainted with trouble. But when the Lord does begin to bless individuals, they must know how to handle the blessings, he added. Your voice and vote both count Prior to Mills sermon, Williams encouraged everyone in the audi ence to register to vote. If youre not registered, get reg istered, he said. Your vote counts and your voice counts.

STRIPES an acronym for Scholarship, Teamwork, Respect, Integrity, Pride, Excellence and Success is an incentive program designed to motivate and award students, according to the CHS website. Students who have less than two absenc es, an A or A/B Honor Roll and no disci plinary referrals are entered into drawings for a variety of prizes at the end of every nine week period. Friday, CHS staff drew awards for the second nine weeks and first semester entries. We drew [names] and had about 30 prizes, mostly cash, gift cards and coupons for free food, said CHS Principal Todd Widergren. Weve had about 600 [entries] the first nine weeks, a little over 500 the sec ond nine weeks and about 300 for the whole [first] semester...We gave out around $2,000 [in prizes]the top prize was $300 cash. He said the programs purpose was to provide an incentive to bring students to the classroom and work hard on their studies. Weve got great teachers, but the stu dents have to be there to take advantage of that, Widergren said. Most of the kids who win fly under the radar because they come to school, dont get in trouble and just do a great job, work hard and represent the school well. Its good to recognize them. Much of the rewards comes from local business donations. Widergren expressed gratitude toward all of the STRIPES pro grams local sponsors like First Federal, the Lake City Reporter and TIMCO Aviation. Our goal is for a year-round prize like a car, Widergren said. That would be lifechanging for some of these students to have a vehicle to go out and go to work. Hopefully well just keep it going and grow... Its amaz ing how many kids have straight As and go to school every day.

In 2012 and 2013, the average inmate popula-tion on any given day was 1,546. That means roughly 4,638 food trays a day, or 1,692,870 meals per year. To help save taxpayers money — and to keep inmates occupied and, per-haps, learning new skills — the Marion County Sheriff’s Office operates three inmate work farms. The main farm is at Maricamp Road and Baseline Road in Ocala, where inmate workers grow a variety of crops and raise cows, pigs and chickens. Another site is a partnership at the 1,100-acre University of Florida Plant Science Research and Education Unit in Citra. This farm also produces a number of plant and animal foods, with a focus on creating new varieties, such as plants that do not require much water or fertilizer. The third site is a county-owned orange grove on Carney Island. The plant and animal foods produced at the three farms are transport-ed to the jail two or three times a week. Once the food arrives, it is kept in a cooler until it is prepared for consumption. What is not to be used immediately is frozen for later use. Byrd said most of the meat products are purchased by the agency, which solicits bids to get the best prices. All meals have to be certified by a dietitian accord-ing to state jail standards before they are served. “You have to follow the guidelines. For example, I can substitute a dessert, like a cake, with a fruit. I can replace a carbohy-drate, such as rice, maca-roni or noodles, with pota-toes or sweet potatoes. All canned vegetables can be replaced with farm veg-etables,” Byrd said. According to the Florida Department of Corrections, the average cost per tray to feed a state prisoner is $1.54.Thief takes car; 2 toddlers inside ORLANDO — Authorities are looking for a thief who took a car with two toddlers strapped into their car seats from outside an Orlando hotel parking lot. The children — ages 1 and 3 — were found on a sidewalk about a mile away Sunday night — still buckled in their car seats. The thief and the car were gone. Police say the children were not harmed and have been reunited with their mother. The car was taken from a Ramada Inn off John Young Parkway in Orlando. No further details were immediately available. 1 shot after firing at deputies INTERLACHEN — A north Florida woman is hospitalized after being shot by sheriff’s deputies responding to her calls about prowlers outside her home. Putnam County Sheriff’s Sgt. Hancel Woods says Diana Lucille Conner was shot after she came out of her house and fired a rifle. Woods tells area newspapers that Conner called the sheriff’s office early Monday, but she didn’t believe that the depu-ties who responded were law enforcement, even after they turned on their patrol cars’ emergency lights. Deputies left Conner’s Interlachen home, then returned about two hours later when neighbors complained that Conner called them about a prowler. Woods says depu-ties ordered Conner to drop her weapon, but she opened fire instead. The deputies fired back. The sheriff’s office says Conner was struck four times.Katie Couric makes documentary debutPARK CITY, Utah A long with her soon-to-end daytime talk show, fall engagement and recent move from TV to the web as Yahoo’s global anchor, Katie Couric also made a documentary feature shown at Sundance. “Fed Up” premiered Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival. Couric linked up with “An Inconvenient Truth” producer Laurie David to make a film that explores the epidemic of child-hood obesity and its not-so-obvious causes. Couric produced and nar-rates the film. The 57-year-old TV anchor said she pitched David her idea over email, “and it took her about 10 sec-onds to say, ‘I’m in.’” “Three seconds,” David said.Couric said documentaries “are replacing journalism in some cases” because budget cuts and a taste for quick news bites means “nobody invests the time to really investigate some of the biggest social issues.” A collection of headlines can’t illu-minate an issue the way a documen-tary can, she said. “It’s great to have the time and ... to know that you don’t have to turn it around in a day, a week or even a month,” she said. “You have 93 min-utes to really flesh out an issue that deserves that and then some. That is so liberating.” “Fed Up,” directed by Stephanie Soechtig, uses historical footage and news events to show the causes and costs of obesity in the United States. “This generation of children is the first to live a shorter life span than their parents, and it has ramifica-tions in every aspect of our lives,” Couric said. “Talk about skyrocket-ing health care costs: the obesity epidemic is behind these health care costs. And national security: these people are too heavy to join the mili-tary ... It affects so many aspects of our country’s health that we really need to start paying attention.” Couric said she hopes the film informs people and incites them to action so the food industry might become as accountable for its harmful products as the tobacco industry has.Sandusky’s son takes part in Penn St. film STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — The son of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky par-ticipated in a documentary about his father’s sexual-abuse case and hopes to become an advocate for child victims. Matt Sandusky told the Centre Daily Times that he took part in “Happy Valley” because he has become strong enough to tell his story and wants to speak out to help other survivors. The 100-min-ute film, debuting this week at the Sundance Film Festival, explores whether it was an open secret that Sandusky was molesting boys. “For me and all survivors it is important to have control over the timing and setting of (the) disclo-sure,” Matt Sandusky told the news-paper. Sandusky had been listed as a defense witness at his father’s 2012 trial, but he instead disclosed through lawyers that he had also been abused and didn’t take the stand. Jerry Sandusky, convicted on 45 counts involving 10 boys, main-tains his innocence and is appealing his conviction. He is serving a 30to 60-year prison term. Matt Sandusky declined to elaborate on his comments in the film.

OBITUARIES Concerns high over water withdrawal By ASIA AIKINS Palatka Daily News PALATKA Residents of Northeast Florida had an opportunity Thursday to express their concerns about the Central Florida Water Initiative during a public workshop here at the St. Johns River Water Management District. It was good to have a forum, said Lisa Rinaman, the St. Johns Riverkeeper. All of the meetings have been in Central Florida, but the plan will impact North Florida too. According to Rinaman, the meeting was requested because the CFWI draft plan called for withdrawing more than 150 million gal lons of water a day from the St. Johns River. A lot of people spoke of concerns (during the public comment portion of the meeting), she said. We knew it was brewing, and there will be negative impacts. Rinaman said there is concern that the proposed withdrawals would worsen existing pollution prob lems, increase the frequen cy of toxic algal blooms, reduce flow and increase salinity levels and adverse ly impact the wildlife and vegetation in and along the river. Teresa Monson, public communications coordina tor for the SJRWMD, said the district collaborated with the National Research Council in 2008 and inves tigated about 3,000 limited surface withdrawal sce narios. They investigated whether or not limited sur face withdrawals in Central Florida would cause envi ronmental concerns, she said. None of the concerns that people spoke about (Thursday) were issues in these scenarios. The only significant neg ative impact that was an issue during the investiga tion, Monson said, was at the upper and middle basin of the river, where tiny fish and larvae could get sucked into intake struc tures. She said researchers determined that there are ways to prevent the issue during the development of the structures. Rinaman said she doesnt think the study justifies surface withdrawals. We believe there was a lot left out, she said. The study looks at quantity, not quality. Monson said the CFWI draft is a menu of options that water suppliers could use as a planning docu ment for future projects. The draft is a result of the Southwest Florida Water Management District, the South Florida Water Management District and the SJRWMDs col laborative work with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and regional utility provid ers. Representatives from the SJRWMD said responses to the concerns addressed during the public com ment portion of Thursdays meeting would be included in the response document, which is expected to be released in early March. The SJRWMD in Palatka will also host a similar public workshop for the draft District Water Supply Plan 2013 from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23. Monson said the district plan includes all 18 counties in North Florida, Region 1, including Putnam County. The CFWI covers Region 3, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and southern Lake coun ties. Rinaman said she has the same concerns for the district plan and CFWI plan drafts. The threats to the river are the same, she said. We should not adopt a plan that takes from our river without a more aggressive water conservation plan in place first. Links for both plans can be found at the SJRWMD website, HOTLINE Continued From 1A cutting across the north ern United States this week. Locals are encouraged to stay indoors, bundle up and avoid prolonged con tact with the sub-freezing nighttime air to ward off the dangerous effects of hypothermia. The chilling weather should be mostly dry, with sunny and partly cloudy skies prevailing. Columbia County Emergency Management Director Shayne Morgan encourages residents to follow the five rules of cold weather safety: Protect people: Dress in layers and wear gloves. Remember to check on young children and the elderly, who are most sensi tive to cold weather. Protect pets: If cold weather is in the forecast, be sure to bring outdoor pets inside or give them a warm shelter to stay in. Protect pipes: Cover pipes and allow outdoor faucets to slowly drip to prevent freezing and breaking. Protect plants: Cover cold-sensitive plants to protect them from the dangerous tem peratures. Practice fire safety: Use safe heating sources indoors. Do NOT use fuelburning devices, such as grills. They release carbon monoxide, a deadly gas. Make sure to use space heaters according to their instructions and be atten tive to open flames. If you have a generator, do NOT use it indoors. Since there are no local homeless shelters, resi dents who wish to sup port the local homeless through the week-long cold snap can donate cash, clothing and other cold weather supplies to Catholic Charities at 258 NW Burk Ave. or online at www.catholiccharities FREEZE Continued From 1A be paid in installments. According to Mayo, Dr. King believed only by working together could humanity reach the Promised Land. The vision of the NAACP is to ensure a society in which all indi viduals have equal rights, and there is no racial hatred, he said. Trinity United Methodist Male Choir and the Newday Spring Missionary Baptist Church choir entertained the audience with sev eral selections, including Down by the Riverside. Columbia County NAACP president Debra White introduced the Florida district direc tor George Young, who attended the Sunday ser vice. She also recognized her sisters from the Lions Club and several public officials. The NAACP is mov ing forward, and we do have a dream, she said. We are for all rights. We dont have a color. Sunday evening ended around 6 p.m. with a bene diction from Mills. After the closing remarks, Young said he believed there were no words spoken that didnt need to be heard. A great Sunday after noon at Newday Spring Missionary Baptist Church, Williams said. The Civil Rights Movement started in a church. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a minister. During that time, black people really gathered and expressed their feelings through the church. Its fitting to start the weekend with a ser vice and end it Monday with a church service. FREEDOM Continued From 1A LIVE OAK A Live Oak man fac ing a charge of careless driving after he overturned his truck carrying three other men Saturday evening, the Florida Highway Patrol Reports. Dalton James Tyre, 19, of Live Oak, was driving a 2005 Ford F-150 with Timothy Martin Kight, 20, Brandon Lee Mortlock, 28, and Cody Lee Jorgensen, 20 all of Live Oak south on 72nd Terrace around 6:45 p.m. Saturday, according to the crash report. Tyre lost control of the vehicle while attempting to negotiate a left curve, rotat ed in a clockwise direction and over turned until the vehicle came to rest on the drivers side, the report said. Tyre sustained minor injuries and was treated at Shands Live Oak. Jorgensen sustained serious injuries and was airlifted to UF Health in Gainesville.

M y wife and I were sitting in one of the waiting areas of Emory Hospital in Atlanta when Zeke walked over to visit. He sat down on the floor next to me, but he said nothing. He was just there. Zeke never speaks, at least not audibly, but he says a lot to cancer patients without saying a word. Zeke is an 11-year-old dog — a Vizsla, to be exact, a breed that originated in Hungary. Out in the field, Zeke would be a natural hunter endowed with an excellent nose, like most dogs in the Pointer group. In the hospital, however, he’s “gentle mannered, demonstra-bly affectionate and sensitive,” just as a website said he would be. Zeke sat beside me for a couple of minutes, pressing his muscular back against my leg while I petted him. And then he moved on with his owner, Kirk Gadebusch. Zeke and Kirk are volunteers with a nonprofit group called Happy Tails, a collection in the metro area of about 230 dogs, cats and bun-nies and their owners who visit hospitals, nursing homes and other care facilities to offer comfort and unspoken therapy to people living very often in a world of medical uncertainty. Getting the program started at Emory Healthcare was the brain-child of Hilary Cohen, one of the certified social workers at Emory. Cohen knew that the hospital had policies about pet visits. There were therapy dogs for the hospital’s Center for Rehab Medicine, and patients in hospice were allowed to see their pets to say goodbye. But there was no program providing emotional support anywhere else. Now there is. And Cohen is delighted with the results. “Dogs are so perceptive, and sometimes they make better com-panions than people,” she said. “They have a lot to say without say-ing anything.” She recalled the time a woman welcomed a therapy dog into her lap and immediately started crying. “I just needed that,” the woman said. “I just needed to cry.” Lorna Doone, Cohen’s ragdoll cat, has experienced the same reac-tions from patients. “Sometimes,” Cohen said, “patients are reluctant to talk about their situations. They don’t know what to say. But when there’s a pet in their lap, something soft and warm and expressive, it makes a difference to them…to get that hug without feeling like they’ve been touched or their space invaded.” Of course, the pets’ owners are aware of HIPAA, the law that pro-tects a patient’s privacy, and they don’t ask questions. But a dog or a cat or a bunny has no such restric-tions, and they’ll never reveal a thing. I was not there at Emory as a patient. My wife, who had breast cancer in 1996, was there for a mammogram and check-up. Thankfully, everything checked out fine. But both of us could have used a visit from Zeke about 17 years ago. And, like Hilary Cohen, we’re glad Zeke and his friends are now there for others who might need a hug or a reason to smile or even a good cry.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.comState’s jobless website failure unacceptable Offering patients comfort without saying a word Months after unveiling a $63 million upgrade to its unemployment website, the state continues to struggle to pro-cess claims from thousands of unem-ployed Floridians who depend on the money for rent and food. But news that the federal government is sending U.S. Department of Labor employees to Florida to help fix a broken website can hardly be greeted with optimism considering the troubles with the Obamacare website. Their arrival, at the urging of Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, is more likely to bring embarrassment to Gov. Rick Scott than a quick fix of the unemployment system’s problems. That said, Scott needs to make this problem a priority and hold accountable the people responsible for the mess. The troubles began in October, when the revamped Florida Department of Economic Development web-site, called CONNECT, failed to work properly. By one estimate, as much as $22 million in benefits ha s now been denied to unemployed Floridians because of the technical problems. Although the process is administered by the state, the Department of Labor oversees unemployment benefits. To his credit, Nels on has been demanding answers. The state’s response hasn’t inspired confidence. The person in charge of the website, Jesse Panuccio, the state’s Department of Economic Opportunity director, at first soft-ped aled the problems, calling them glitches that were to be expected. But that’s hardly been the case. The company the state hired to do the work, Deloitte Consulting, has a history of troubled technology contracts. The launch in Florida was 10 months late and occurred after con-cerns were raised as the launch neared. After the launch, users found the website down, encountered error messages, or were blocked from full access. Assurances were made that the site would be functioning well by the end of last month. But the site continues to have problems. The state is now with-holding a $3 million payment from Deloitte and fini ng the company $15,000 each day the problems remain unresolved. A second tech company will be paid $365,000 to review the site, and as many as 330 workers will be hired to help process claims at an estimated cost of $165,000 a week. Panuccio says money collected from Deloitte, along with federal funds, will pay for the additional costs. He blames the company entirely for the problems, and the dispute may very well end up in court. Similarities to the launch of the website are unmistakable. In both cases govern-ment bureaucrats unveiled a flawed website without the proper testing. But the state, and the federal government, should resist calls to spend even more money by creating IT departments. The focus should be on hiring the right contractors, putting new systems though rigorous testing, and making sure they work before launch. Anyone responsible for failing to follow those simple steps should be sent to the unemployment line.2016 campaign shifts to higher gear I f anyone doubts that the 2016 presidential election campaign has begun already despite a lack of announced candidates, the furor surrounding the leading prospects of both major parties should dispel any such notion. Both Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey and former first lady, senator and state secretary Hillary Clinton have found out quickly what it means to be the center of attention in the scramble to replace Barack Obama. Both are embroiled in con-troversy that probably would have gone away otherwise. A scathing congressional report that raises questions about Clinton’s management, or lack of it, of the incident in Benghazi that took the life of Libyan Ambassador Christ Stevens and three of his security detail left little doubt that this would remain an issue in any decision to try once again to become the first woman to win a presidential nomination. Clinton said at the time of the tragedy in the old rule that the buck stops at the top that she as the State Department’s chief would have to assume responsibility. The report re-emphasized as much. As for Christie, the outrageous actions of some of his chief advisers to punish an obscure Democratic Party mayor who they thought should have endorsed the Republican governor’s re-election has raised lingering questions about his viability as a national candidate. History is replete with examples that testify to the fact that being the “front runner” early in the race for the presidency is probably not the place to be. Former Michigan Gov. George Romney, the father of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney, found that out when one simple remark blew him out of contention for the White House. He said that he had been “brain washed” by the military about the need to be in Vietnam. The perception of an ineffectual leader was too much to overcome for the onetime president of American Motors. Clinton seems less vulnerable given her demonstrated and highly praised work at State. Her marks in the four years leading up to Benghazi have been as high as any-one in that difficult post in recent memory, and until the Libyan affair she had managed to keep herself out of controversy. Christie on the other hand has little of the same insulation. He has been on the scene only a short time and has made his reputation on being a sort of Jersey Shore tough guy who takes little of what he considers guff and lets things fall where they may. That is, of course, until the bridge matter when he was unchar-acteristically contrite. The governor also must face another obstacle. His party’s viable right where any number of presidential wannabes lurk. Some, like Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, have even moved more toward the center, but still maintain conservative credentials that most Republican hopefuls need to be viable for the nomination. Much of this will shake down in the next months until the November midterm elections. Clinton’s back-ers are already raising money and Christie is expected to offer his cam-paign services to GOP candidates in the congressional races, and that undoubtedly will include conserva-tives although at the moment he is considered by the party’s main-stream to be the best chance of fending off tea party radicals. The fact is that the race already has begun and what occurs in the fall will decide the viability of both candidates and several more who will begin the long trek to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in earnest once that is over. Will Christie and Clinton still be around? I’m bet-ting they are but just how potent depends on how well they over-come Fort Lee and Benghazi.

Tuesday’s Family Night was a big hit with all ages. With the theme, “Warm Up With a Good Book,” FWES faculty made gal-lons of home-cooked chili and soup to serve the hun-dreds of students and fami-ly members who attended. The cafeteria rang with shouts of “Bingo!” as families competed in book bingo, with scores of age-appropriate books as prizes. Local author Barbara Griffin read her children’s book, “The Little Bear That No One Wanted.” The media center was packed with dedicated readers and parents for Family Reading Night. Parents remarked that it was truly a fun night at school. Other events took place throughout the school days. Superintendent Terry Huddleston read Ezra Jack Keats’ book “Goggles” to Karen Blanchard’s and Rhonda Rogers’ kinder-garten classes. The morning announcement included clues about a mystery book, with a dif-ferent grade level targeted each day. Students who could correctly guess the title of the mystery book entered a classroom draw-ing to win a copy of the book. Students decorated a cereal box or paper bag to represent a favorite book, with the top three from each class displayed in the media center. Classrooms displayed decorated doors and post-ers depicting favorite books. We all “Dropped Everything And Read” (DEAR) from 9 to 9:15 each morning. Every day featured a different way to dress to celebrate literacy, from wearing funky socks, camo gear, hats, or glasses to dressing in costume as a story book character. Students created book commercials for the morn-ing announcements. The lunchroom joined in, with “pear” up with a good book and go “bananas” for a good book. During Funky Fitness, students could exercise their mind by reading. It was an exciting week that underscored that FWES students, faculty, and staff are totally commitment to reading.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Columbia Highs Tre Simmons makes a jump shot against Oakleaf High on Thursday. Difficult defeat By BRANDON FINLEY Columbia High fell on the road at Palatka High, 63-52, on Saturday. According to head coach Horace Jefferson, it wasnt one of the Tigers best per formances of the season. We didnt play too bad, but we had too many criti cal turnovers, Jefferson said. The game has led me to believe that I should shake the lineup up a bit. I thought about doing it before the game, but with Palatkas press, I decided not to. Darrell Jones and Andrew Moemeka scored 12 points apiece to lead the Tigers. Robert Dace added 11 points for Columbia off the bench. Columbia falls on the road to Palatka, 63-52. CHS continued on 2B By BRANDON FINLEY With a 24-8 victory in the 7th Annual East-West AllStar Game in Fort White on Saturday, Fort White and East head coach Demetric Jackson said it was a fitting sendoff for the seniors at Fort White and Columbia high schools. It went good for us, Jackson said. I thought our guys responded well, basically having a little over three days of practice thats limited with coaches. Coach Steve Hoard was kind of the defensive coordinator. Shae (Showers) was there two of the three days to help. (Ken) Snider was there Monday and Tuesday. The East didnt decide on a quarterback until halfway through the week, mainly because there wasnt one on their roster. Columbias J.T. Bradley eventually took the role and was named MVP after the game. We didnt do anything offensively Monday and didnt have a quarterback, Jackson said. For the guys to pick up the offense that fast, I thought it was com mendable on their part. We tried to be real basic with those guys. I just wanted them to go out and have fun. The big difference was our side was a lot more dis ciplined. And it all started with the guy calling the signals according to Jackson. J.T. Bradley did a great job after playing receiver at Columbia, Jackson said. He took care of the ball and didnt put it on the ground. Having not played quarterback since junior varsity, he really showed me something. Although the game will showcase players trying to work their way to the next level, Jackson said for most of his former players it was about putting the pads on one last time. For the most part, most of our guys werent trying to play to get to the next level, Jackson said. A lot of our guys like Joe Chatman and Chris Waites, Im sure if they got an offer, theyd take it, but they know this is the last time that they may play football. There were some guys that got another chance to get a spot on the highlight film. For that aspiration, its great. Most werent looking at it that way. Jackson said that most of his Indians took advantage of that final contest and had good games. I thought Chris Waites played great, Jackson said. He played left guard all season, and we had a cou ple of guys that were left guard. We kind of knew he could play both sides, so we moved him to right guard. When we had some issues with some things, we put him back at left guard. If anybody noticed, we ran every single play to the left side from the second quar ter on. I felt comfortable running behind him. We were able to do some things behind him. But Waites wasnt the only Indian to stand out to Jackson. E.J. (Garrison) kind of did what he normally does, Jackson said. (Caleb) Bundy, we kind of put him back at tight end, because we didnt have one and he did a good job blocking. Chatman had a good job defensively. Jackson was also impressed with what he saw out of the Columbia players, especially the kicker. (Brayden) Thomas, he did great, Jackson said. We saw him and he told me that he could make it from 55 yards and in. I think we kind of got it there and he hit it. I think he could go somewhere and kick or punt. If some schools give him a chance. Jackson was also impressed with the passcatching ability of a former Tiger receiver. Akeem (Williams) went up and made a phenomenal catch, Jackson said. He had potential if the right school looks at him. In all, it was a great first outing for Fort White JEN CHASTEEN /Special to the Reporter East MVPs J.T. Bradley (right) from Columbia and Jonathan Quiller from Baldwin were honored after the 7th Annual East-West All-Star Game in Fort White. ALL-STARS continued on 2B 1BSPORTS

That adds another dimension. We need to find that additional spark.” With an 8-9 record, the Tigers look to get back to .500 tonight as they host Orange Park High at 7:30 p.m. “It’s all about the second season,” Jefferson said. “We’re trying to get ready, because that’s about to start.” Super matchup: It’s offense vs. defense in championship By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressPeyton Manning’s Denver Broncos and Richard Sherman’s Seattle Seahawks were the NFL’s best all season, so it’s fit-ting that they’ll meet in the Super Bowl. Nobody scored as many points or gained as many yards as the Broncos. Nobody allowed as few points or gave up as few yards as the Seahawks. And nobody won as many games as those clubs, either. What a way to finish the season. When the AFC champion Broncos (15-3) play the NFC champion Seahawks (15-3) on Feb. 2 at what could be a chilly MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., it will be the first Super Bowl since 1991 pitting the league’s highest-scoring team in the regular season against the team that was scored on the least, according to STATS. It’s also only the second time in the last 20 Super Bowls that the No. 1 seed in each conference reached the NFL champi-onship game. “It will be a great matchup,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “I think it’s an extraordinary opportunity to go against a guy that set all the records in the his-tory of the game.” That, of course, would be Manning, the 37-year-old quarterback who is the only four-time NFL MVP — and no one would be surprised if No. 5 arrives the night before the Super Bowl. He established marks by throwing for 55 touchdowns and 5,477 yards, helping Denver lead the league with 37.9 points and 457.3 yards per game. Manning is an inescapable pitchman, too, seen Sunday after Sunday during TV commercials. Hey, there he was selling cars during breaks in the broadcast of the NFC title game. Expect even more face time now. Manning’s oft-told tale, certain to be repeated a million times in the coming days, includes his come-back from a series of surgi-cal procedures to his neck, attempts to cure problems that led him to sit out the entire 2011 season. That also led the Indianapolis Colts to send him pack-ing despite two Super Bowl appearances with that club, including a title in 2007. “It’s certainly well-documented what my journey the past 2 years has been,” said Manning, who could become the first starting QB to lead two franchises to titles, “but this team’s overcome a lot of obstacles this year.” None more serious, perhaps, than coach John Fox’s absence for about a month because of a heart operation. Other issues included the fax faux pas that precipitated the depar-ture of pass rusher Elvis Dumervil, star linebacker Von Miller’s drug-testing suspension and season-ending knee injury, and the losses of a handful of other starters on defense. “Being in my 16th season, going to my third Super Bowl — I know how hard it is to get there,” Manning said. He threw for 400 yards and two touchdowns in a 26-16 victory over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game Sunday. Manning’s offense scored on six consecutive possessions, accounted for more than 500 yards, had zero turnovers and zero sacks. Ol’ No. 18’s opposite number in two weeks, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, provides a real contrast as he seeks his — and the Seahawks’ — first Super Bowl trophy. Wilson is 6 inches shorter, 12 years younger, a skilled scrambler in only his second pro season after slipping to the third round of the draft; he’s a guy who had to transfer colleg-es to get playing time and thought about pursuing a baseball career instead. “Any time you get to the Super Bowl,” Wilson said after Seattle beat the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 on Sunday, “it’s a special time.” Other members of the Seahawks getting the chance to introduce them-selves to a wide audience include rugged running back Marshawn Lynch — fans tossed packs of his favorite candy, Skittles, onto the field after a 40-yard TD run in the third quarter — and Carroll, a rah-rah sort who was a title-winning college coach at Southern California. And maybe, just maybe, some of Manning’s less-heralded defensive team-mates — the ones who clamped down on New England’s running game Sunday and limited Brady much of the afternoon — will get their chance to shine, too. Seattle’s defense, led by Sherman, allowed an aver-age of 14.4 points and 273.6 yards, and topped the NFL in takeaways. On Sunday, the Seahawks forced three turnovers in the fourth quarter alone. as host according to the coach. “I’m just so happy to see so many people come out to Fort White,” Jackson said. “Being the first time we were able to host it, I think this is the largest crowd they’ve had since they put on the All-Star game. I’m pleased with the commu-nity. I want to think the organization with (William) Murphy and (Mario) Coppock. I wish more coaches would put effort into it. You have all these other All-Star games, so when we got one in the back yard, I wish that more coaches would be involved. Overall, I was pleased with the effort.” ALL-STARS: Jackson brags on players Continued From Page 1B JEN CHASTEEN /Special to the ReporterFormer Columbia High player Akeem Williams (right) go es up for a pass while playing for the East squad in the 7th Annual East-West All Star Game in Fo rt White on Saturday. 2BAGATE TUESDAY EVENING JANUARY 21, 2014 Comcast Dish DirecTV 6 PM6:307 PM7:308 PM8:309 PM9:3010 PM10:3011 PM11:30 3-ABC 3 -TV20 NewsABC World NewsEntertainment Ton.Inside Edition (N) Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

DEAR ABBY: I just read the letter from “Twice Bitten in Washington” (Nov. 4), who had thanked veterans for their ser-vice to our country and received several negative responses. I’m a retired vet, dying from Agent Orange poisoning. I served two tours in Vietnam, and when I returned from Nam, I was called a baby killer, spat upon and refused taxi service because I was in uniform. America has had a change in attitude since the Vietnam War. Today, many folks appreciate what the military is doing. I have been thanked several times while wearing my Vietnam Veterans hat and it makes me feel great, to the point my eyes water. Tell “Twice Bitten” to continue thanking the mili-tary vets. It means a lot, especially to vets like me. Sure beats being called a baby killer. — VIETNAM VET DEAR VIETNAM VET: I received many letters like yours from Vietnam vets who were also not thanked for their service when they returned home. Like you, they very much appreci-ate hearing a “delayed” thanks for their service. I would like to thank you and all the readers who responded to that column with such emotional and sometimes gut-wrenching stories. Read on: DEAR ABBY: I would like to offer “Twice” an explanation for the reac-tion she received. I served two tours in Iraq and lost some good friends. When vets return home from war, home is a scary place. The life we lived and breathed is no longer. After spending so much time fearing the unknown and protecting ourselves physically and emotionally, we can’t stop. Many of us came home feeling guilty that we lived while others died -ashamed that we might not have done enough, that we should have been the one who was laid to rest, that maybe if we had looked harder, fought harder, we wouldn’t have lost a soldier. When I returned home, I reacted the way “Twice” described. I was resent-ful that someone would take the time to honor me, but not the friends I lost. It was a long time before I realized that by honor-ing me with their sincere thanks, they were honor-ing every soldier we have ever lost. Now when I am thanked, I shake hands, I hug, and I thank them for their respect. To “Twice”: Never stop! Do not be afraid. We are not hateful or angry. We are scared and sad. Your expression of thanks means more than any parade, any medal or any award could ever mean. — BRANDON IN INDIANA DEAR ABBY: As a soon-to-be-retired career Army officer, I am one of those who feel awk-ward when people thank us for doing our jobs. The Army was a career I chose, knowing the hard-ships and what would be asked of me. The military is filled with all kinds of people, and even though I may not always be in the mood for a stranger to approach me when I’m out and about, deep down inside it is refreshing to know that what I do is appreciated. — PHIL IN WASHINGTON STATE DEAR READERS: Here are other ways to thank vets. Volunteer at a veterans hospital and bring flowers and toiletries. If you live near a base, volun-teer to support the USO at your local airport to make travel more comfortable for our servicemen and women. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Take a practical approach to everything you do and you will eliminate criticism and ridicule. Self-improvements that boost your confidence will get you moving down a positive path. Don’t let partners dic-tate your actions. Equality is required to make a relationship work properly. +++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Do your own thing. Make choices based on what you want, but don’t tell others what they should do. You’ll get the most mile-age if you are honest about what you want and if you refrain from being stub-born, demanding or exces-sive. +++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Use your wisdom, past experience and creative imagination to lead you to victory. Charm coupled with finesse and mystery will make social-izing fun and bring about new friendships and oppor-tunities to do things differ-ently. Keep your spending to a minimum. +++++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Make choices based on your abilities. Minor adjustments to your residence may upset some-one if you don’t ask first. A window of opportunity will enable you to present what you have to offer and gain support. Listen to someone with experience. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll face frustrations at home, but that shouldn’t stop you from exploring new interests or connecting with people who share your desires. Travel and get involved in partnerships, but don’t push your luck when deal-ing with authority figures. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22): Make plans with friends or sign up for an interest, course or event that is conducive to socializing. You’ll find out valuable information if you watch what happens to people in similar situations. Romance will improve your love life. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make subtle changes at home, but don’t go over budget. Talk to experts about your plans. Getting started will be much easier if you have local support from people in the know. Aggressive action will change the dynamics of a personal relationship. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Shutting someone out will not solve the problem. Take a physical approach by doing things that reflect the way you feel. An emotional change will alter your financial situation. Travel will open up a new friendship with someone you respect. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep your emotions in check and out of business deals. It’s impor-tant to be innovative, but you also have to be shrewd if you are going to get your way. A change in the way you live will be costly but pleasing. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll have an opportunity to start some-thing new, but before you jump in, make sure you are doing it for the right reason. Taking on too much will backfire, costing you men-tally, physically and finan-cially. Don’t make unneces-sary changes. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put more emphasis on sealing a deal. Make your move and show everyone how ready, willing and determined you are to accept and fol-low through with impor-tant personal change. Discipline and hard work will bring unexpected rewards. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Offer your assistance and you will raise your profile as well as encourage offers from people who can help you expand your own inter-ests; however, don’t take anything or anyone for granted or a disagreement or loss will broadside you. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
