Crist keeps lead over Scott By JIM SAUNDERS The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE With Floridas political world gearing up for a cost ly, divisive campaign, Democrat Charlie Crist continues to hold a comfortable lead over Republican incumbent Rick Scott in the bat tle for the governors office, a poll released Thursday shows. Crist, who is trying to make a comeback after an earlier stint as the Republican governor, leads Scott by a margin of 46 percent to 38 percent, according to the Quinnipiac University poll. Those numbers are similar to a November poll by the university that showed Crist ahead 47 percent to 40 percent. While Crist formally entered the race in November, polls earlier last year gave him double-digit leads. Peter Brown, assistant direc tor of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said the new numbers show Scotts comeback has stalled after the incumbent JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Sharon Pruett, president of Golden Rule Jewelry, shows a necklace to Willie Dunlap, a Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center surgical technician, at the Valentines Auxiliary Jewelry Sale on Thursday. Dunlap said that it was much easier to go jewelry shopping since everything was so close to work. All proceeds benefit the hospital.

POSSIBLE DATA BREACH Still no word if Michaels was compromised By STEVEN RICHMOND There is still no word from craft supply store Michaels regarding a possible data breach since the Secret Service formally began an investigation on Saturday. The company is working closely with federal law enforcement and is conducting an investigation with the help of third-party data security experts to estab lish the facts, according to a previous press release from the Irving, Texas-based company. Although federal authorities are investigating the matter, there has been no word on the nature of the breech, or whether anything occurred at all. We are concerned there may have been a data security attack on Michaels, CEO Chuck Rubin said in the release. While we have not confirmed a com promise to our systems, we believe it is in the best interest of our customers to alert them to this potential By AMANDA WILLIAMSON The Columbia County School District received a perfect audit without any sug gested improvements for the first time in history, according to school officials. Powell & Jones, certified public accoun tants, audited the fiduciary net assets of the internal accounts of various Columbia County schools for the year ending on June 30, 2013. The auditors also looked at the school systems internal control over finan cial reporting. In prior years, Powell & Jones noted some school employees who maintain accounting records also handle cash collections, co-sign checks and reconcile bank statement bal ances to the accounting records. The auditor believed the internal control over these cash transactions would be strengthened if the duties were divided among vari ous employees. Powell & Jones report ed this year that all schools had implemented corrective procedures to the greatest extent pos sible to fix prior significant findings. There were no new recommendations for improve ment listed by the company. As well as I can remember, this is the first time theyve come back with no suggestions, said school board chairman Keith Hudson, now serving his 10th term on the board. When you get a perfect audit, thats really as good as it gets. As good as it gets district receives first perfect audit Black History Month events By STEVEN RICHMOND Local community leaders are coordinating cultural enrichment opportunities throughout the month of February in Columbia County to honor the contribu tions and profound impact African American citizens had on the development of our local and national iden tity. Bea Coker, Executive Chambers traveling trophy Pat finds a home at Gators Dockside By AMANDA WILLIAMSON Alpata Pat, the Columbia CountyLake City Chamber of Commerce Champion, is right at home in its new setting at Gators Dockside. During the Chamber Ball on Saturday, Dockside owner Jerry Roberts won the right to host Pat a mounted gator head inside his business for the upcom ing year.

He now serves as a sort of floating trophy that chamber members can host each year. The honor is obtained through a bidding process. Roberts paid $1,255 for Pat. Previous businesses to be visited by the alligator are ProMotion Physical Therapy and North Florida Pharmacy.

Paraplegic steals car from dealer OCALA — Police say a paraplegic man stole a vehicle from an Ocala dealership before leading officers on a brief chase. He was arrested a short time later Wednesday when Bradford County Sheriff’s deputies spotted him at a gas station. According to police, the man went to Ford of Ocala to purchase a vehicle. A salesman showed him around and he decided on a white 2009 Pontiac G6. Police say the salesman helped the man into the car so he could see how the car felt. But once inside, he locked the doors, turned on the vehicle and put the end of a folding cane on the gas pedal. He drove away from the lot. “It was unbelievable, only in the movies,” said Anselmo “Chico” Barreto, who has worked at the dealership for 11 years. He’s charged with driving with a suspended license and is facing a possible charge of grand theft auto. 1 shot, wounded at EFS College PALM BAY — Officials say a man was shot and critically wounded at the Palm Bay Campus of Eastern Florida State College. Palm Bay police report that two men were beating up on another man Thursday afternoon. The man being attacked retreated to his vehicle, where he grabbed a gun and shot one of his attack-ers in the chest. No names were immediately released.2A 2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JANUARY 31 & FEBRUARY 1, 2014 APPAA ,!+%#)49!,-!.!# œiV>]`>>>`}>…ˆV^"£7i>…ini>]*]>`ˆœ]7ˆi>…i'Lˆ…iVœ“ -1 "" 56).$%8 (;75(0(PLQXWHVWREXUQ /œ`>'>‡ˆœi>`ˆ>ˆœˆŽvœ…i>i>œ>V>ivœ“œ£ &9) !NEXCLUSIVE SERVICE BROUGHTTO OURREADERS BY 4HE7EATHER #HANNEL 30/.3/2%$"9 nˆ 4(%7%!4(%2 7%!4(%2()34/29 3HQVDFROD 7DOODKDVVHH 3DQDPD&LW\ 9DOGRVWD 'D\WRQD%HDFK &DSH&DQDYHUDO *DLQHVYLOOH /DNH&LW\ 2FDOD 2UODQGR -DFNVRQYLOOH 7DPSD :HVW3DOP%HDFK )W0\HUV )W/DXGHUGDOH 1DSOHV 0LDPL .H\:HVW /r*r,/1,rœ“>…ˆ}… œ“>œ*,rn*//" œ…œ>9i>œ> (),/ ,/(),/ (),/ (),/ () 31 01 02 03 04 SaturdaySunday Cape Canaveral 81/70/pc81/65/pc Daytona Beach 79/64/pc80/63/sh Fort Myers 82/65/pc85/64/pc Ft.

B eyonce is one of the world’s most scrutinized pop stars, and now that study is moving to academia. The Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University is offering a course called “Politicizing Beyonce.” Kevin Allred, a doctoral student who is teaching the class, tells the univer-sity’s online news site that he is using Beyonce’s career as a way to explore American race, gender and sexual poli-tics. The class supplements an analysis of Beyonce’s videos and lyrics with readings from black feminists. Allred says he’s seeking to help students think more critically about media consumption. Rutgers also has a class examining the theology of Bruce Springsteen’s lyrics.Justin Bieber charged with assault in Canada TORONTO — Justin Bieber was charged with assault for allegedly hitting a Toronto limousine driver several times in the back of the head last month. The news broke just after the Canadian pop star’s attorney entered a separate not guilty plea in Florida to drunken-driving. The baby-faced 19-year-old turned himself in to a Toronto police station Wednesday evening, arriving amid a crush of media and screaming fans. He was charged with one count of assault and is scheduled to appear in court in Toronto on March 10. Police allege Bieber was one of six people who were picked up by a limousine from a nightclub in the early morning hours of Dec. 30, and there was an alter-cation while en route to a hotel.Knox’s murder conviction upheld in Italian appeal FLORENCE, Italy — More than two years after Amanda Knox returned home to the U.S. a free woman, an Italian court Thursday reinstated her murder conviction in the stabbing of her roommate and increased her sentence to 28 years in prison, raising the specter of a long, drawn-out extradition fight. Knox, 26, received word of the verdict in her hometown of Seattle. The former American exchange student called it unjust and said she was “frightened and saddened.” “This has gotten out of hand,” Knox said in a statement. “Having been found innocent before, I expected better from the Italian justice system.” Legal experts have said it is unlikely that Italy would request Knox’s extradi-tion before the verdict is final.

Hudson attributes the districts clean audit to its employees, who he said are doing exactly what theyre supposed to do with the finances. He hopes to con tinue the positive streak next year with another per fect audit. In the meantime, he has asked school super intendent Terry Huddleston to send a letter to each school thanking them for their efficient work. According to Huddleston, the audit is a testament to the districts employees and the importance of handing money appropriately. This is a goal the district has been striving for, he said. Most of our criticisms in the past were procedural. The district has worked to correct those [issues], and thats evident by this audit. The audit was approved by the Columbia County School Board during the Tuesday night board meeting at the Columbia County School District Administrative Complex. Despite the positive out look on the audit, the dis trict is still struggling finan cially. At a budget workshop on Tuesday, finance direc tor Bonnie Penner told the board the budget was suf fering due to a combination of declining enrollment and reduced funding. Because of past over spending and extra obliga tions, the district had to make $4.7 million in cuts to get on track $1.5 mil lion to reach the required fund balance, $2 million for operating budget to balance and $1.2 million for funds allocated with restrictions. We thought it was bad at the beginning of the year, but I dont think we had a complete understanding of the magnitude of the problem, Penner said in a Wednesday interview. The financial troubles of the district, Huddleston said, could not be fixed in one year. However, he was impressed with the $4.7 million in cuts the district made to stop oper ating in the negative. We just have to continue monitoring what we have in place, Huddleston said. Hopefully the governors budget will house few ear marked funds and will give us the flexibility to address the financial need of the district. The mission is our students. Even through these tough financial times, the board and I have kept our focus on preserving the education of our children. issue, encouraging custom ers to review their payment card account statements for unauthorized charges. Data breach scares are not a new phenomenon at Michaelssources online indicate Michaels was the victim of data tampering that affected at least 70 point-ofsale terminals nationwide in 2011. If investigations of Michaels payment system yield positive results of data tampering, they would join the ranks of other big-box stores, like Target, Neiman Marcus and Aaron Brothers, that have all been victims of data attacks in the past 12 months.

AUDIT Continued From 1A MICHAELS Continued From 1A Bidding started at $500 and increased by increments of $100. As the auction reached its end, there were two businesses vying for the Chamber Champion: Gators Dockside and Joel Foreman of Foreman, McInnis & Douglas, PA. It will have a lot more visibility here than it had at previous places, Decker said. This gives the chamber and the businesses exposure. It allows the community to know the business is an active supporter of the chamber. Funds raised through Pat allow the chamber to host year-round com munity events, such as Snow Day, Trunk or Treat and the spring Easter egg hunt. Gators Dockside plans to tie-in a special social media promo tion with Pat, the new addition to its Dockside family. Roberts said he hasnt decided on the promotion quite yet, but asks that those interested check in at the Dockside Facebook page to stay up-to-date. PAT Continued From 1A ICE Continued From 1A made up ground in 2013. The best number in this poll for Crist --and the biggest problem for Scott --is that a majority of Florida voters say the current governor does not deserve a second term in Tallahassee, Brown said in a pre pared statement. Voters also give Crist a higher job approval for when he ran the state than any approv al rating Scott has received in his three years on the job. The poll indicates Crist has comfortable leads with closely watched groups such as independents and Hispanic voters. Also, it continues to show that voters have a gen erally negative view of Scott. POLLS Cont. From 1A systems due to the poten tial of icy conditions on the roadway, Tracy Hisler-Pace, public affairs officer for FHP Troop B, said. There could have been some ice in the emergency lane, but we have been strictly check ing for ice on the travel lane. Black ice forms when puddles on the road freeze. While not truly black, the ice is vir tually transparent and almost impossible to see. From midnight on Tuesday until early Thursday morning, Columbia County only had four traffic accidents, none of which were weath er-related. According to Hisler-Pace, thats a small number. We were very fortu nate, she said. 3A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JANUARY 31 & FEBRUARY 1, 2014


D uring a news confer-ence, then-President Bill Clinton, who was going through one of the many rough patches of his White House days, was asked if he was still relevant. Startled and then grim-faced, Clinton struggled to assert that, yes, the president of the United States was relevant. Awkward. President Obama is going through something similar. His poll numbers are abysmal. Dweebs no longer shout that he lies but walk out while he’s speaking. His pleas to Congress on behalf of popular programs such as providing workers with a living wage fall on deaf ears. Obama is too classy to jump up and down, red-faced, shouting for us to pay attention. Nonetheless his strategy might have made a mistake. Frustrated that the divided Congress and balking Republicans in particular are giving him little but grief, Obama keeps declaring he’s going to do whatever he can by executive action to push his agenda. Not surprisingly, Republicans have been jumping up and down, red-faced, shouting he’s ignoring them. Better that he had just gone ahead and done what he wanted without raising a red flag by announcing that he “will not stand still” on the sidelines while Congress bickers ineffectually. Meanwhile, Obama’s huge campaign apparatus is switching loyal-ties to Hillary Clinton before she has even affirmed she wants to be president. The implication is that Obama is done; stick a fork in him, despite the very obvious fact that he still has three years in office. Darn right that politics ain’t bean bag. In a contemplative interview recently, Obama noted the passage of history, remarking that presi-dents come and go and contribute bits and pieces. Oh. Oh. The legacy thing has started to bug him. It is not too late for Obama to make his presence felt. There are signs that mainstream Republicans, even mercurial House Speaker John Boehner, are feeling voter ire for dismissing everything Obama tries to do out of hand. Maybe they’ll be a little more responsive on issues of national importance. After two years of arguing, the House passed a farm bill although poor children in 15 states will get only half the food they eat now even after a huge cut last November. There are so many issues to worry us. Immigration. Withdrawal from Afghanistan. A livable wage. Nuclear negotiations with Iran. Middle East peace. Affordable health care. The disappearance of the middle class. A crumbling infrastructure. Children educated for the future. Equal pay for equal work. Energy independence. Keeping guns out of the hands of deranged men and women. Closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay. Retirement security. Reforming the tax code. Executive actions, which easily may be overturned and often are, are not a solution to any of these issues. Obama is not an underachiever. But vowing to use executive actions seems like giving up. He’s trying to make Americans elect Democrats in the November congressional elec-tions to help push his agenda. That’s a lot of eggs in one fragile basket. Obama hopes to convince voters that Republicans are Neanderthals (sorry, cave people) on raising the minimum wage, women’s health issues, war, gun control and income equality. If Republicans are smart, they’ll prove him wrong. That’s an “if” the size of Mount Rushmore.... We revive a pet peeve with Obama – Republicans and even members of his own party do not fear him because he has caved too many times. Let’s face it; success-ful presidents can’t be nice guys all the time. They have to threaten, not just cajole, as Lyndon Johnson and Theodore Roosevelt often proved. We need Obama to toughen up. If not, the nation again will have wasted time, and the next president will be weakened before he/she takes office. M ay I introduce myself? My name is “Melly.” I’m really special, and very smart. They say I have a vocabulary of about 500 words. I understand speech pretty well, but I’m really an expert in reading body language. That makes up for the fact that I can’t speak. I’m very observant, and watch the people I know and care about really well, and I know what they’re thinking almost before they do. Please be careful what you say about me. If I get a haircut, I need to be told that I’m pretty. If you tease me or make fun of me, I know right away, and it hurts me deeply. I can’t understand why anyone would want to do that to me! I live on a 10-acre ranch in North Central Florida. I really enjoy close contact with people, taking walks, running, road trips, and swimming in local rivers or lakes, no matter how muddy, whenever I get the chance. My very favorite thing to do is go on a long walk, particularly if there’s a lake or river I can play in. I enjoy eating, and nap a good part of the day. I never, ever worry or get angry, or hold a grudge. I can be very loving, gentle, and kind, but something in me, call it a primitive instinct, still has a wild side. When I get around other ani-mals, I feel a strong impulse to be the “Alpha bitch,” and I might fight if my authority is threatened. If I get to know other animals naturally, like dogs or cats, like by sniff-ing their back sides and touching noses, I can make friends. Just so they know who’s the boss. I feel like my ancestors must have been a pack of wolves (literally!) I Love to see the full moon, and I sometimes I howl at it. (I don’t know why I do that!) I know that my family wants the best for me, and will never let me down. I’m totally loyal, and would lay down my life to defend them. I love people, and if you come visit us I will be so happy to see you. But if you’re someone I don’t know, I will lie down on my haunches about ten feet back, and watch you very close-ly to see how Bob or Daneen talks to you. If they like you, you’re fine. But if it looks like you’re a threat, well, bring it on! How did I find this good family? When I was a puppy, I was taken to Watermelon Pond wilderness area. For some reason, my first family drove off without me! They never came back for me. I’ll never know what happened to them. Then days later a pickup truck stopped near me. I was so glad to see someone, I came running up and did the best I could to make friends. He patted me on the head and spoke to me, but I didn’t under-stand. He got back in and drove away. I ran as fast as I could till I couldn’t run any more, but the truck disappeared in the distance! Later that evening, he came back with another person. Bob, Daneen, and I were instant friends, and they invited me into their car. I was so happy to visit their home and ranch, which I found out was to be my new home. We’ve lived together in the country now for about eight years. I still have a long beautiful black coat, I’m but getting a little gray around my chin. We have a wonderful life together! I hope everyone can be as happy as I am now, here. I love the two best friends I have in the world. Note from Bob: Want a devoted, wonderful friend? Save a life; rescue a pet.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.comAll the president’s pens ‘My name is Melly’ E ver the huckster, rarely the statesman, President Obama continued the pitch for the spending schemes he presented Tuesday night in his State of the Union speech. On Wednesday, he began a road trip to take him to carefully assembled fawning crowds in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin. Mr. Obama will reiterate how he intends to go around Congress whenever it suits him. Congressional Republicans, perhaps even including the aisle-crossing moderates he’s counted on to push some of his more egregious measures in the past, are rightly concerned. “We’re not just going to sit here and let the president trample all over us,” warned House Speaker John A. Boehner. “I have to remind him we do have a Constitution. … And if he tries to ignore this, he’s going to run into a brick wall.” Mr. Obama says he’ll climb over the wall to check off the items on his economic to-do list, basi-cally a reconstituted version of every tax-and-spend Democratic agenda since Jimmy Carter’s days of malaise. It’s about “strengthening the middle class,” he says, with barely an acknowledgment of the Constitution, which sets out that a bill doesn’t become law without the approval of Congress. That includes the House, even if most of the members are Republicans, as well as the Senate with its friendly majority of Democrats.... “I’ve got a pen,” Mr. Obama said last week, “and I’ve got a phone.” The pen would be used to sign executive orders; the telephone to coordinate with special-inter-est groups to pressure Congress to support measures he can’t yet impose unilaterally. It calls to mind the cavalier observation of one of President Clinton’s top advisers, about executive orders. “Stroke of the pen,” said Paul Begala, “law of the land. Kinda cool.” The White House now requires federal contractors pay a minimum wage of $10.10 an hour, a clever way to spin the debate so that it’s not about federal contrac-tors being paid too much, but about not being paid enough. The cash for this generosity comes from the pockets of taxpayers, who have no say. It’s easy for Mr. Obama to be so cavalier with other people’s money. Far more expensive will be the executive fiats in the works at the EPA. Mr. Obama’s zealous clerks hope to impose onerous regulations in the name of ending the scourge of carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is, among other things, what everyone exhales, but when the molecules escape a power plant they’re noxious and evil. (How do the molecules know?) Mr. Obama will kill jobs and send electricity rates to the stratosphere to reduce something other-wise essential to life on the planet.... He must sidestep Congress to get a legacy other than Obamacare, which he understands is poison. He must do something — anything — about job-approval numbers like those in a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll Tuesday that found 68 percent of Americans think they’re not better off than when Mr. Obama became president, and 63 percent who say the country is on the wrong track. Those are numbers that can’t be changed with a phone and a pen.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, January 31 & February 1, 2014 5A 5AF&V Stewardship in the last daysA s the situation in the Middle East unfolds and the church sees the events following the rapture draw near, we know that the times and the seasons are upon us. (Matthew 24). Whether it is ten minutes or ten years we ought always to be watch-ful (2nd Tim. 4:8). The world stage is set and we do not expect it to be very long before we hear the voice like a trumpet “saying come up here” (Rev. 4:1). Even as we pen these words the world is engulfed with wars and conflicts. Every part of the world is going through major trials and tribulations. More and more men are desperate to find some way to satisfy everybody with some sort of compre-hensive plan for peace. It remains to be seen if the fighting going on at this time proves to be the spur to Daniel’s peace plan (Dan. 9:27). If it is, the time is extremely short. So what are we, as born-again believers, to do? The answer is to do what you have been doing and continue to look for His coming. If we are looking for His soon coming, we will be vigilant in our daily walk and ministry. If we are truly doing what He has called us to do, just because the church age is drawing to a close, our ministries have not changed. If you are a pastor of a church, make your congregation aware of the fact that the time may be near. Of course, for you to do that, you must believe it your-self. You must urge them to step up to the plate and be more consistent in their own ministries. If you are a church member and do nothing more than go to church on Sunday, and maybe even Wednesday, maybe it is time to re-evaluate how you ought to be serving God better. Ask God to make your life more fruitful (read John 15:1-11). James 4:2-3 tells us: “You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.” If you ask God to use you, He will, if you are sincere in how you ask. Church, these are the last days. If you have been slack in your min-istries — and many have been — there is no need to panic. You still have time to get back in tune with God. You cannot make yourself fruitful but God both can and will. Again, read John 15:1-11. The nearer we come to the end of this age, the more fiercely the devil fights against our efforts. It is useless to go out without being fully armored and armed with the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God. We ought always to keep a copy of God’s Word handy. How shall we share God’s Word if we don’t have it with us. Most today have not hid enough of God’s Word in their heart to combat the wiles of the devil. Again, let me say do not be slack in your ministries for the first event to take place after the rapture will be the Judgment Seat of Christ. This is not a judgment of sin but the judgment of how well we have han-dled the ministries of our Lord on earth. Where do you stand?

Epaphras taught the ColossiansI n Paul’s letter to the Colossians, he gives thanks to God for the Colossians for their “faith in Christ Jesus” which they had “heard in the word of truth, the gospel” (Colossians 1:5). These brethren at Colossae had learned of this “gospel” because of the teaching of Epaphras. He not only taught them about hav-ing a “hope laid up” for them in heaven, but he explained things to them so that they “understood the grace of God in truth” (1:6). Apparently Paul had not been to this group of people but they had been taught by a man described by Paul as “our beloved fellow bond-servant, who is a faith-ful servant of Christ on our behalf” (1:7). Here is an example of a group of people being taught the message of God by some-one other than an apostle and who possibly had been taught by someone else himself. Paul is thankful that Epaphras had done his job well. Epaphras taught these people the same thing that Paul would have taught them. By following his example we learn that we must teach others to have faith, hope and understand-ing. If we teach what Paul taught, then people will have what the Colossians had when they were taught by Epaphras. A person can be taught to have faith because they are willing to hear what the one who is proclaim-ing the message has to say. After considering what they have heard then they can decide if they want to put their trust and confidence in what has been said. The acquir-ing of faith is not some “miracu-lous” or “God-given” thing but rather it is some-thing which we acquire because we are listening to the “word of God” (Romans 10:17). The same is true about a person learning about “the hope laid up in heaven.” They must listen as someone tells them about this hope and then decide if they want to put their trust and confidence in what they have heard. When it comes to understanding something, we must also begin by hearing the message and putting our trust and confidence in it. Understanding takes us a little farther. Understanding involves knowing the “whys” behind the facts. When we understand some-thing then we are able to express it to someone else. We are able to teach them to have faith, hope and understanding. The book of Acts demonstrates that God intended for this process to be the way people came to have faith, hope and understand-ing; everyone was to be taught by another person. It appears that God wants us to follow the example of Epaphras when he taught the Colossians. Don’t worry about how much you know. Teach them what you know. If you do not know the answer to their questions, then tell them, “Let me do some studying and I will share with you later what I have learned.” They will greatly appreciate the atti-tude and their respect for you will increase because of your humbleness to admit you do not know and your willingness to learn yourself. We can all be teachers like Epaphras. We can all teach someone. Think about the good feeling you will have knowing that you helped someone learn about God, you helped them reach their “hope that is laid up in heaven” and because you shared reasons with them they now “understand the grace of God in truth.” May we all teach someone like Epaphras taught the Colossians.

6A 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JANUARY 31 & FEBRUARY 1, 2014 Men: Cherish your wives; Women: Respect your husbands I love romance. Even with over 25 years of marriage, I still love for my husband to make an effort to make me feel special. As a matter of fact, I have never spoken to a wife yet who doesnt enjoy or even yearn for their husband to do the same. Since February is the month we celebrate expressions of love via Valentines Day, I want to devote the next several columns to this topic. Specifically, I hope to encourage husbands and wives to be intentional about this area of mar riage. Before I begin, let me add one disclaimer: If it seems like I am leaning a little more toward the husbands, it is because I often hear from men that they dont understand what their wife wants. Trust me, your wife wants you to know, so please view this as a little encouragement and help in the right direction. I promise the pay-off will be worth it! I ran across an anony mous quote recently that gives us a great start ing place: If a man has enough horse sense to treat his wife like a thor oughbred, she will never be an old nag. One of the most important ways a man can romance his wife is to cherish her. Not just on special occasions, but to make it a practice. Websters dictionary defines the word cherish: To hold as precious; to keep with care and affection. How different might your wife act if she felt precious to you at all times? Perhaps many women become old nags because that is how they are treated. Likewise, when I was a young wife, an older lady shared her secret of marital success: Treat your husband as if he is already the man you hope he someday becomes. Youre honoring him will stir the desire in him to become that man. Too often couples get in the endless cycle of trying to demand respect from the other one. In counseling situa tions, I always encourage a couple to be willing to leap off this destruc tive cycle. As the head of your home, I ask husbands to go first. Ephesians 5:28 says that husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. No better time to start moving in the right direction! Here are a few practical but very powerful ways to cherish your wife: Be intentionally thoughtful. Help with a task without being asked; open the door for her, etc. At a recent ballgame, I saw a teenage boy wipe off a wet bleacher with his pants so that his date could sit in a dry place. He has the right idea! Listen to her. Learn to press the off button on the remote. Stop what you are doing so that you can look at her when she is speaking to you. Look her in the eyes. Consider what she has to say as important. Ask for her opinion when making decisions. Share your life with her. Remember that you married in order to do life together. Going your separate ways too often can lead you apart. Your wife will feel honored if you include her in your thoughts and feelings. Defend her honor: A husband who cher ishes his wife wont allow another person to disrespect her in any way. Hold the standard high even with your chil dren, extended family or friends. By the way ladies, these same principles work well to honor your husband too! Along with these, I challenge you to make a list of what your husband is doing right and share it with him this week. You may just be on the way to the best Valentines Day ever, because every heart mat ters! Blessings, Angie A fter 430 years of slavery, the Israelites were finally free from Egypt and the horrible treatment of slave masters. God chose Moses (Exodus 23) to be His messenger to Pharaoh. It took Pharaoh ten lessons (Exodus 7-11) before he finally let Gods people go. They packed up everything they could carry, and even looted the people of Egypt, and set out for the Promised Land of Canaan. Following the Red Sea event, where Pharaoh met his final defeat (Exodus 13-14), they are now free, but there is more to freedom than what meets the eye. After the song, dance and celebration came the hardship and responsibil ity something they were not prepared for. The wilderness was not easy and Israel continually griped and complained to Moses and Aaron about poor conditions (Exodus 15:22-23; 16:3). They even wanted to go back to slav ery in Egypt. Slavery at least provided them with food and water, and they didnt have to even think for themselves since they were told what to do. Sure, they were beaten if they failed at their jobs, but now the hardship of freedom and responsibilities of free dom, made them forget the bad stuff and long for slavery once again. There are two ways to look at this thing called freedom. Freedom is good and bad because it means you have to think and make decisions based on the knowledge of right and wrong. It depends on how bad you want to be free. Some Christians still want a lot of rules and regulations they have hard a time with the grey areas where decisions and choices must be made. Pauls greatest battle was with Jewish teachers and Christians who were try ing to either enforce or go back to the slavery of the Law (Galatians 4:8-11). The problem was that they were trying to be saved by performance of law-keep ing, not faith in Christ. Lawkeeping takes the joy of the Christian away (Galatians 4:15) and you fall from grace (Galatians 5:4). It really is a case where free dom in Christ is at stake. Paul says, It is for free dom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Religion which enslaves, and demands performance is a religion of frustration and guilt. You can motivate by both law and grace but only one brings joy. There is a big differ ence between going to church, giving, praying, singing, studying because you have to and because you want to. When it come to slavery versus freedom, Ill take freedom in Christ every time. Slavery versus freedom Jack Exum Jr. Jack Exum Jr. is a free lance writer who lives in Lake City.

Its About My Efforts aims to instill a sense of positive cultural identity in youths of all ages. Children need to feel good about who they are as individuals, Coker said. We want to give them a good, solid foun dation about who they are as contributors in this world, America and the community...Their place in this world is inten tional. To reinforce the idea, she adopted the mantra, Made in his image, just as I am to be. No mistake creating me, to drive the idea of cultural identity home. In observance of Black History Month, each school plans some type of activity, Spradley said. [The schools] plan activi ties for the awareness of what Black History is and develops curricula for Black History Month. Its About My Efforts will hold four events dur ing the first week of Black History Month: Black History Month Opening Ceremonya free event beginning at 6:00 p.m. at Richardson community Center Feb. 1. The ceremony will give a literary rendition of the history into America and where we are now, Coker said, including works from prominent black wordsmiths. Black History Presentationa free event at the FGC Library at 10:15 a.m., Feb. 3. The presentation is an FGC-sponsored activity featuring presentations by authorities on Black History and artistic performances by local citizens. Annual Health Faira free event at Richardson Community Center, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Feb. 8. It originally began to connect elders to services they need, but turned into something more than that, Coker said. There will be free blood pres sure checks and every medical auxiliary service you can imagine. What Freedom Looked Like, a Feb. 8 bus trip to Ft. Mose For $25 dollars a per son, guests will take a trip to Ft. Mose Historic State Park in St. Augustine. Ft. Mose was the first free all-black settlement in the US, Coker said. It predates slavery around the late 1600s, early 1700s...Every year they have a reenactment of the peoples lives in a free society. Money for tickets are due Feb. 4. The bus, with seating for about 65, will leave from Richardson Community Center at 7:00 a.m. and return 6:00 p.m. We really are always working to have a diverse offering for this to be an experience the entire community would embrace, Coker said.

Church calendar Your time is limited I t's been just over a year since I was count ing down the days to my wedding. I, thankfully, was very eager to craft my way into oblivion as I made decorations, boutonnires, and even hand-painted all seven (yes, seven) of my bridesmaids' shoes. If I hadn't had the date set firmly in my mind of when all these (and many, many other) things had to be done, I might have worked as if I had an unlimited amount of time. A little effort one day, some work done the fol lowing week, maybe a full day's work but then noth ing accomplished for the following month. At that rate, would I ever have fin ished all I needed to do? Fortunately, my wed ding date was set I had numbered my days. Unfortunately, no one on this earth knows the number of days in his or her life. Moses asks God in Psalm 90:12 to "teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." If we lived as if our days were numbered as I did when I was counting down the days to my wedding we would realize our time is limited. And since our time is limited, we must limit the way we spend our time. Bronnie Ware, a hos pice nurse from Australia, recently published a book entitled, "The Top Five Regrets of the Dying." Over the course of years, she's asked her patients what, if anything, they wish they'd done different ly. Were fortunate enough, through her book, to glean a bit of wisdom about the final days of our lives a sneak peek into the future, if you will. The top two regrets of Wares hospice patients were: 1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life oth ers expected of me. Ware writes, This was the most common regret of all. When people realize that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unful filled. Most people had not honored even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. 2. I wish I didn't work so hard. Ware writes, This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children's youth and their partner's companionship. Women also spoke of this regret. But as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spend ing so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence. By simplifying your lifestyle and making con scious choices along the way, it is possible to not need the income that you think you do. And by creat ing more space in your life, you become happier and more open to new opportu nities, ones more suited to your new lifestyle. The act of creating more space in your life is what my pastor has been calling "finding breathing room." We need breathing room in our schedules, so we don't find ourselves at home thinking we need to be at work and find ourselves at work wishing we were at home with our family. But you may think, "If I don't work 80 hours a week, I'll never make it." Make what? "If I don't spend Saturday AND Sunday at the office, I'll fall behind." Fall behind whom? "If I don't get this pro motion/raise/new job/you name it, I won't measure up." To whom? God? His is the only standard that mat ters and its OK that well never come close to mea suring up to Him. Since our time is limited, we must limit the way we spend our time. And this is done by way of Moses' prayer in Psalm 90:12. "Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." Decide on one thing in your life that's taking up too much of your time, and one thing you wish you spent more time on. For me, that was TV and books. I had a deep desire to watch less and read more, but never had the discipline to grab the remote. I did, and just last night finished 80 pages of a book I'd had by my night stand for two weeks. For you it may be more drastic. But whatever it is, limit your time with the things that make you happy, the things that bring honor to God and the things that, at the end of your life, you'll be proud to say you accomplished.

Kayla Carman, Kallie Horton and Glendasha Johnson will rep-resent Columbia High. The state meet is at the Kissimmee Civic Center on Feb. 8. Coaches Doug Peeler and Brandon Beadles will take the qualifiers for a walk-through on Friday evening. Weigh-in is 7-8:30 a.m. Saturday and competi-tion begins at 10:30 a.m., following meetings for judges, coaches and par-ticipants. Carman is the grand old lady of the group. The senior is making her third trip to the state meet, and this time she is looking to bring home hardware. “I want to win state this year,” Carman said. “I think I will be in the medals (top six) and want to earn team points, but I want a ring so we shall see.” Carman began her weightlifting quest almost literally as the 98-pound weakling from the old ads. She qualified for state as a sophomore in the 101-pound weight class with a 95-pound bench press and 100-pound clean and jerk for a 195 total. Carman moved up to the 110-pound weight class last year with a qualifying total of 220 pounds. This year, she has added 55 pounds to that total with a 130 bench and 145 clean and jerk. Carman’s 275 total ranks fourth in the state among qualifiers in her division. “I worked hard,” Carman said. “I worked out all sum-mer to get better. It was like I was the only one in the weight room.” Carman’s qualifying total is 20 pounds behind second and third place, but just 25 pounds from the top spot. She thinks she has a shot. “Winning every meet (Including the qualifier at Arnold High in Panama City Beach) helped me this year,” Carman said. “You always have to push your-self and work as hard as you can. I am more focused and don’t let distractions get to me.” Carman said her dad, Sean, is a big fan. “I want to thank my dad and coaches for pushing me so hard,” she said. Horton and Johnson are both juniors and going to state for the first time. Johnson was second in the Panama City qualifier and Horton was third. Johnson qualified in the 169-pound weight class with a 130-140-270. This is her third year on the weightlift-ing team. “I took it more seriously this time,” Johnson said. “I set goals for myself. I want-ed first place at the quali-fier, but scratched on a lift. I am lifting way more than last year. I am happy I made state and worked hard to get the highest total.” Johnson said she got some advice from Carman. “Kayla told me there would be a lot of people there, so just focus on get-ting my lifts and nothing else,” Johnson said. “I’m ready.” Johnson was a middle blocker on the volleyball team and plans to compete in both sports next school year. “Lifting keeps me in shape and keeps my arms tight,” Johnson said. “Next year I plan on being first in the qualifier and going back to state.” Johnson has trained under Peeler and Beadles for three years. “I want to thank Coach Peeler for pushing me,” Johnson said. “He tells me to never give up and don’t be a wimp. Coach Beadles is a positive influence.” Horton signed onto the weightlifting team for the first time after joining in workouts at home. She qualified for state in the 119-pound weight class with lifts of 95-130-225. “My dad (David) is into working out and I work with my whole family,” Horton said. “I think it is fun and I like getting per-sonal records. I wanted to do as good as I could and I’m proud of making state.” Getting stronger has benefited Horton’s love of dancing. “I am into (all kinds of) dancing pretty intently and weightlifting helps with that,” Horton said. “My dad really likes that I am on the weightlifting team. Two years of a varsity sport can get you out of (P.E.) classes.” Horton said she also heard from Carman. “Kayla was telling me I would probably make state and what to expect,” Horton said. “She said to try not to miss any lifts.” JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High state qualifying weightlifters Kallie Horton 16, (from left) Glendasha Johnson, 17, and Kayla Carman, 17, pose for a photograph before pr actice on Wednesday.

An expanded 16-driver field will be whittled down to a final four through three rounds of elimina-tions. The remaining four drivers will go to the sea-son finale with an equal chance to win the champi-onship: The first of the four drivers to cross the finish line will be crowned Sprint Cup champion. “No math. No bonus points. It’s as simple as it gets,” NASCAR Chairman Brian France said. It’s the fourth and most radical change to either the points or champion-ship format since France created the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship system in 2004. For 28 years prior to the Chase, the champion was the driv-er with the most points at the end of the season. It was changed a year after Matt Kenseth won the 2003 title with one vic-tory, and France began his pursuit of creating “Game 7 moments” for NASCAR. Along the way, he has made it clear he wants a greater emphasis on win-ning and drivers aggres-sively pursuing a trip to Victory Lane. Under this new format, the days of settling for a good points day are offi-cially over. Why? Because a win in the 26-race “regular sea-son” virtually guarantees a berth in the 10-race Chase. Then, once eliminations begin in the Chase, a driv-er can guarantee advanc-ing into the next round by winning a race. Last August, 2012 champion Brad Keselowski chased Kyle Busch around Watkins Glen and declined to aggres-sively move his rival out of the way. Keselowski settled for second, and in failing to win a regular-season race, he missed the Chase and was ineligible to defend his title. Under the new format, a winless Keselowski would have no choice in that same situation but to bang fenders with Busch and go after a win. That’s exactly what France wants to see on the track each week. More important, it’s what France said research shows fans overwhelmingly support. “This is pretty clear: You have to win, you have to compete at a higher level, you have to take more chanc-es,” France said, adding that NASCAR has not wavered in its desire for increased action on the track. “If it’s this format, or any other format, and it’s late in the race and you’ve got a faster car, we expect some contact,” he said. “Obviously there are some limits, but that’s always part of NASCAR, to have some version of contact late in the race. Will this bring more of that? I’m sure it will.” Postseason modified in top NASCAR series.

DEAR ABBY: My husband is a hard work-er, a good provider and a good dad. However, he’s angry all the time. It has been this way for as long as I can remember. He is aware of it, and always promises me that when this or that settles down, things will get better, but they never do. When he sees something on TV or reads something in the paper that upsets him, he can say really vile and violent things. Often when he thinks things the kids and I do are not good enough, he borders on being verbally abusive. His friends say I’m a “saint” for putting up with him, but lately all I feel is tired out and worn down by it. I have spoken to him about this numerous times, and it improves for a few days, then it starts all over. I’m not sure how much longer I can last. He reads your column, and I’m hoping he’ll see this and realize how bad things really are. I have asked him to go to coun-seling, but he hasn’t been willing. Do you think there’s anything I can do besides leaving that will make him see what he is doing to me and the kids? — READY TO LEAVE DEAR READY TO LEAVE: Your husband may be a good provider and a hard worker, but I seriously question wheth-er he is as good a dad as you would like to think. Children need their par-ents’ encouragement and approval, as well as their patience and counsel. When they are given a constant barrage of angry putdowns from a parent, they begin to internalize it. They think such behavior is normal, which means they will repeat it in their relationships when they are older. Or, they may think they deserve to be treated that way and choose mates who treat them like Dad did. Kids with low self-esteem also tend to choose friends who are like themselves, which can cause even more problems. There is something you can do besides leave right now. Make an appointment for YOURSELF with a licensed psychotherapist and take the children with you. That way, your husband can foot the bill while all of you get your heads straight and you make up your mind if you’re serious about leaving. (Alternatively, he can finally admit he needs help with his anger issues and schedule an appointment for himself.) DEAR ABBY: I’m engaged to be married soon, and I’m concerned about a commitment my fiance, “Jeff,” made to his older sister “Beth.” Beth is planning on having a child through a sperm donor and has asked Jeff to be a “father figure” once the child is born. He has doubts about the wisdom of her plan to parent a child alone, but he doesn’t want to hurt her feelings and is flat-tered to have been asked to fulfill such an important task. He agreed to do it without discussing it with me. Beth is very nice, and Jeff’s family has embraced me and I don’t want to cause trouble. Jeff and I plan on having several children of our own, and we also plan to move out of state in the next few years. I am wondering how this com-mitment will affect that possibility. I am uncomfortable with Jeff making a life-long commitment to serve as a father figure to another person’s child, especially when he hasn’t established what it entails. I’m worried that this will cause conflict in our marriage if he goes through with it. Am I overreacting? I know I need to discuss this with my fiance. How do you suggest I pro-ceed? — UNSURE IN THE MIDWEST DEAR UNSURE: You’re not overreacting, and I agree that before this goes any further, you and Jeff need to talk. Open the discus-sion by telling him that you’re not comfortable and why. Suggest he talk to his sister and find out EXACTLY what she meant when she asked him to be a father figure. He also needs to tell her he may have spoken too soon when he agreed, because he had not first discussed it with you and that the two of you plan to leave the state in the next few years. She needs that important informa-tion because it may alter her choice about who should fill that important role. DEAR ABBY: Why is a wedding always about the bride? Why is the groom often ignored and the occasion not about BOTH of them? I find this offensive as a man who, by tradition, is supposed to “take care of her,” but is ignored as a partner in the relationship. The whole deal about the day being about the bride is sexist, as far as I’m concerned. Television shows like “Bridezillas” make men look like idiots who have no value in a marriage. What are your thoughts? — MAN WHO MATTERS IN FLORIDA DEAR MAN WHO MATTERS: These shows you refer to depend on shock value to attract and sustain an audience, and some of the goings-on that are portrayed are so far-out as to be freakish. Please don’t mistake real-ity TV for reality because nothing could be further from the truth. Much has changed regarding marriage cus-toms in the last decades. Traditionally, weddings were paid for by the par-ents of the bride. There was little monetary input from the groom’s family, and they did not expect to assist in the planning of the event. Today, how-ever, many couples post-pone marriage until they are older and financially independent. They pay for their own weddings and plan them as partners. TO MY ASIAN FRIENDS: Today marks the first day of the Lunar New Year. It’s the Year of the Horse. The horse is a symbol of traveling, competition and victory. May it be a winning year! — Love, ABBY HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Focus on what you can do to help others, not on trying to impress someone who is nega-tive or only interested on benefiting themselves. Your kindness and gener-osity will be appreciated and will help you build a strong alliance with some-one special. ++++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Use your imagination and creative input when looking for solutions, and you will hit the jackpot and win favors. Your ability to show pro-fessionalism, as well as concern and honesty, will help secure future pros-pects. Keep your emotions under control. ++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Consider services you can offer and present what you’ve got to those willing to pay. Good fortune can be yours if you are passionate about what you do and how you do it. Modernization is your ticket to success. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Position yourself so that you get the chance to view or experi-ence other life choices or ethnic traditions. Travel or research destinations that interest you and you will be able to incorporate what you find into your everyday life. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Offer a deal that is hard to turn down. Talk about a partnership or joint venture that is unique and full of potential. Take action and you will get what you want. If you include individuals from different backgrounds, you will get diverse feed-back. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take the path that is most unusual. Delve into the unfamiliar and take it upon yourself to discover new possibilities, but don’t let someone with far-fetched dreams interfere in a solid plan that prom-ises success. Control will be necessary. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23Oct. 22): Alter the way or what you do to ensure that you achieve satisfac-tion and personal happi-ness. A change in the way you treat someone or the company you keep will bring mixed feelings and responses from friends and family. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t let emotions take over when dealing with domestic or household situations. You have to separate your feel-ings from the reality of whatever changes occur. Use your imagination and you will find alternative means to get what you want. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Consider your current situation and how well it’s working out for you. Question whether you want to continue down the same path or make changes by picking up more skills or education, or moving to a difficult location. Follow your instincts, not someone else. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll have plenty of ideas, but not all will be feasible. Consider what’s involved and make choices based on reason. Wanting to please some-one at the expense of risk-ing your own position or security isn’t going to play out well. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Re-evaluate your position and size up the prospects and how you can reach a destination that will bring you greater satisfaction. Use your imagination and you will find a unique way to use your talents to help your community. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Listen and react quietly. The less people know about what you are doing, the better. You will avoid meddling if you sneak below the radar and put everything in place before presenting or promoting what you have accomplished. Romance is highlighted. +++ Happy Birthday: Unique ideas, coupled with a good plan, will help you get ahead. The changes that go on around you will turn in your favor. Express your thoughts openly, but keep your financial and personal life private. Gauge what will bring you the highest returns and head down the path that shows the most promise. Refrain from making personal changes. Your numbers are 1, 4, 18, 26, 33, 38, 45. THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Family’s ties begin to fray under man’s relentless angerQ Write Dear Abby at or P.O.
