By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreportr.comThe mysterious phenomenon surrounding the decline of honeybee populations may be waning, but is still a significant problem with no clear explanation, according to an agent with the Columbia County Extension Office. There is a decline in the bee population, said Derek Barber, Livestock and Natural Resources Agent for Columbia County Extension. Individuals are finding dead bees around their hives or they just disappear. Theyre still working on studies as to whats contributing to it. Populations of honeybee colonies nationwide experienced uncharacteristically high attrition in 2006 and averaging losses of 30 to 70 percent, prompting scientists to coin the term colony collapse disorder. Its still a problem, but its gotten to an average number now, Barber said. In the past its been 50 to 90 percent of their [Florida] colonies. The average number is about 30 percent now since it they started reporting it in 2006. But losses didnt deter citizens from maintaining their own honeybee populations, Barber said. More individuals are wanting to produce their own food or buy local, so thats sort of a trend, Barber said. When they started registering [domestic] beehives during the last five years, its increased from 900 to 3,250. That shows theres individuals that are looking at either producing honey or having bees for their gardens to help pollinate. Scientists continue to debate the cause behind the honeybees decline, with most explanations pointing to a combination of pesticides, parasites, genetic defects, communicable diseases and more. They do know there are some pests out there that are also involved and can decline or kill your hive, Barber said. He used the varroa destructor as an example a mite just shy of 2 millimeters in diameter that breeds exclusively in honeybee colonies. The mite affixes itself to bees and literally sucks them dry, draining them of hemolymph, a mixture of blood and fluids that comprises a significant portion of an insects circulatory system. However, recent reports from international science journal Nature indicate the honeybees wild cousins, bumblebees, are beginning to show the same red flags that plagued their domestic counterparts. Pathogens like the varroa mite and the nosema parasite are carriers of deformed wing virus (DWV), which scientists believe is spreading to bumblebees. The prevalence of [DWV] and the exotic parasite Nosema ceranae in honeybees and COURTESY A colony of honey bees is seen during the UF/IFAS Bee College 2014 held at the UF Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience in St. Augustine, which took place March 7, 8.

Rick Scott and the Legislature fix or repeal the stand your ground self-defense law. Sharpton marched alongside the parents of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis, two teens the marchers said were wrongly killed under Floridas first-in-thenation law, which allows people to use deadly force when they feel their lives are in danger and provides immunity from prosecution. Florida is ground zero for a sick and wicked law that has now spread through 23 other states, Sharpton told the crowd on the Capitol steps. It started in Florida, and weve come to start the ending of it in Florida. But House Judiciary Chairman Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, defended the law against criticism from Sharpton and others. This scenario that hes painted that old white vigilantes are going around hunting down young teenage black kids and murdering them in the street --he knows that is not whats happened, Baxley said. The Rev. R. B. Holmes, Jr. asked the governor to seek a repeal of the law. The likelihood of that is not great. A bill that would have repealed stand your ground failed last fall, and lawmakers are now considering expanding the law. The House Judiciary Committee voted overwhelmingly last month to approve what has become known as the warning shot bill, readying it to go to the full House. The bill (HB 89), sponsored by Rep. Neil Combee, R-Polk City, would grant immunity to people who threaten to use force, including displaying weapons or firing warning shots, in self-defense.

Area low temperatures are forecasted to drop to the 30s by mid-week, but rebound before the weekend. There is a front coming through, but its going to be a short cold blast, said Shayne Morgan, Columbia County Emergency Management Director. After that, It will warm back up into the upper 70s. If forecast models hold, the high temperature on Wednesday will be 79 degrees, with a low of 44. There is also a 50 percent chance of rain on Wednesday. On Thursday, its forecast to be sunny and cool, with a high of 61. But Thursday night it gets downright chilly again, with a low of 35 degrees. Its not going to be a long period of the cold air, Morgan said. It wont be a return of the polar vortex. Morgan said we are in a transition from winter and spring. The warm air coming up from the equator kind of holds off the colder air to keep the temperatures from staying low as they do in January and February, he said. Last March, during a similar weather pattern, a downburst accompanied a storm causing thousands of dollars in damage to the area. Because of the duel between the hot and cold air, thats why we have to monitor these fronts as they come through, Morgan said. It doesnt look like this is going to be a strong enough front for it to generate any severe type of weather for us locally. The forecast for Friday calls for a high of 69 and a low of 43.Bundle back up: More cold weather comingNights below 45 in Columbia County October 2013 3 November 2013 8 December 2013 12 January 2014 26 February 2014 16 BarberCause of colony collapse disorder still unknown.METRO CREATIVE IMAGES hives or they just disappear.

Authorities located the truck near mile marker 409 and conducted a traffic stop with the aid of local sheriffs deputies, the release said. When authorities made contact with the three individuals, the driver allegedly said, I told him not to do it. Dean offered an apology, saying Im sorry for shooting at the guy on the bicycle, according to the release. It was stupid. I shouldnt have done it. I could have hurt him. Dean was arrested and booked into Columbia County Detention Facility.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING TUESDAY, MARCH 11, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 AROUND FLORIDA TALLAHASSEE — The Rev. Al Sharpton led sev eral hundred people on a march Monday to the state Capitol, where they rallied against Florida’s “stand your ground” law. Among those present were the parents of slain teenager Trayvon Martin and the family of Marissa Alexander, who was sen tenced to 20 years for firing a gun near her estranged hus band. The crowd rallied on the Capitol steps across from Florida’s Supreme Court. “To have laws that tell people that they can shoot first and then ask questions later is a violation of our civil rights. I believe that law is inherently wrong,” Sharpton said before the march began. “The law in effect says based on your imagination — if you imag ine I’m a threat — you have the right to kill me.” Sharpton called Florida “ground zero” for the fight against ‘stand your ground.’ Florida law says people who are not involved in illegal activity have the right to stand their ground and meet force with force, including deadly force, if they reasonably believe it’s necessary to avoid death or great bodily harm.

Reeva Steenkamp was shot with bullets designed to expand on impact and cause maximum damage, Prof. Gert Saayman testified after he identified the type of bullet from fragments in Steenkamp’s skull. Saayman’s testimony was not broadcast or reported live on Twitter by journal ists because of its explicit content under an order from Judge Thokozile Masipa. However, journalists were allowed to report the testimony without directly quoting the witness’s words. The double-amputee runner, hunched over on a bench, vomited when he heard the description of Steenkamp’s wounds, prompting Masipa to briefly halt the tes timony to ask chief defense lawyer Barry Roux to attend to his client. The judge also asked whether Pistorius was able to under stand the proceedings. Roux said Pistorius’ reaction was not going to change. A bucket was placed at his feet. After court adjourned for the day, Pistorius sat for a few minutes with his hands over his ears and his body heaving and bent forward as his brother held a hand on his back.‘300’ sequel rules box office with $45.1M debut NEW YORK — The shirtless warriors of the “300” sequel “Rise of an Empire” ravaged the post-Oscars box-office weekend with a domestic debut of $45.1 million and an inter national haul of $87.8 million. Seven years after the original “300” became an unlikely, ultra-stylish, blood-soaked sensation, Warner Bros.’ 3-D fol low-up showed considerable might at the box office. While “300: Rise of an Empire” didn’t come close the North American debut of Zack Snyder’s 2007 original, it per formed like a blockbuster overseas. “Rise of an Empire,” which with flexed torsos and R-rated bloodshed further chron icles the ancient battles of the Greeks and Persians, led a busy box-office weekend that also saw an Academy Awards bump for “12 Years a Slave” and one of the highest per-screen averages ever for Wes Anderson’s European caper “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” Scripture of the Day We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone. — Ronald Reagan, WK3UHVLGHQW RIWKH8QLWHG6WDWHV “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.” — 1 Peter 3:15 See an error?

She was born in Fort Worth, Texas to the late Thomas B. and Ruby N. [Hildreth] Gray and had lived in Live Oak, Florida for a number of years before moving to Lake City in 1997. She was a loving mother, grandmother and friend who loved reading, coloring, and sharing her time with her family. Survivors include her son, James D.

GATEWAY-FOREST LAWN FUNERAL HOME, 3596 South US Hwy 441, Lake City, FL 32025. (386) 7521954. Please leave words of love and comfort for the family online at www. gatewayforestlawn.comRussell Wayne Davis Mr. Russell Wayne Davis of Lake City, Florida, passed away March 2, 2014, of natural causes. He was 83. Russell was a strong, quiet, intel ligent and enormously competent and kind man. He valued honor, honesty and strength of character, and strove to demonstrate those traits himself and cultivate them in those close to him. He had a wonderful sense of humor, and loved life, the company of friends, an occasional glass of brandy, and sharing stories, to the continuing enjoyment of those in his company. Russell lived a long and lifespan fell short of that of his famous ancestor, Devil John Davis, who lived to see his 112th birthday and was the oldest man in America at the time of his death. Russell was born July 1, 1930, in Sabina, Ohio, to Harley and Edna Davis. He and his siblings, Dale, Maxine and Lavonne, attended school in the Ceasarcreek Township School District, and Russell graduated from high school with high honors in 1948. All three predeceased him, and another brother, Gerald, drowned as a child. Russell married Barbara Lee Larrick in 1954, and completed a two-year tour of duty with the U.S. Army in Europe before his Honorable Discharge in 1961. He worked as a mechanic early in his career, and spent nearly 20 years working for Frigidaire in Dayton, Ohio. Russell, Barbara and their two daughters, Debra and Sandra, moved in 1966 to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where Russell bought a marine construction company, Broward Piling, Inc., in Pompano Beach, Florida. He ran the successful business until he retired to Live Oak, Florida, in the late 70s and built an expansive and beautiful home of his own design, recognized house in Suwannee County at the time. An eloquent writer, he wrote a pointed and sometimes political column in the late 1990s and early 2000s for the Suwannee Democrat, which brought him both approbation from the appreciative and ire from the irritated subjects of his wit. He was an active member of the Kiwanis Club of Live Oak, selling many a Christmas tree on cold winter nights to raise funds for the less fortunate. After he and his wife divorced in 2000, he moved to Lake City, where he raised his cherished grandson, Ryan Davis, and lived the rest of his life. Russell loved his family and friends, and enjoyed huntlecting the stories of strangers. He was much loved in return, and greatly missed. He is survived by his former wife, Barbara Davis, his daughters, Debra Davis Amirin and Sandra Renee Davis, and his grandsons, Ryan Wayne Davis, Jason Alexander Amirin and Brandon Scott Amirin.Obituaries are paid advertisements.

As honeybees have higher DWV prevalence, and sympatric bumblebees and honeybees are infected by the same DWV strains, [the domestic honeybee] is the likely source of at least one major [emerging infectious disease] in wild pollinators. Barber also believes synthetic man-made materials could be inhibiting the honeybees recovery. The big one is the pesticides and insecticides, he said. For example, mosquito control. If they go out and spray and dont know they have hives, the bees would be killed. According to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Floridas honey industry is one of the five largest in the nation, annual grossing $13 million. In addition, the Florida honeybee industry benefits our states fruit and vegetable industry by providing an estimated $20 million in increased production num bers created by managed pollination services that are available no other way, according to the departments website.

No additional information was available at press time. From staff reportsA Lake City man was arrested after driving under the influence and nearly striking a sheriffs deputy, CCSO reports. Deputies arrested Shawn Thomas McNeal, 36, of 115 SE Lakeside Glen, after he allegedly drove recklessly around a group of pedestrians in the parking lot of Club Rodeo around 1:05 a.m. Sunday morning, according to the arrest report. A deputy on patrol watched McNeal pull his black four door Lincoln out of its parking spot before throwing it into drive and peeling his tires, racing across the parking lot, the report said. McNeal passed by a group of pedestrians leaving the bar, floored the vehicle out of the parking lots south entrance and quickly re-entered through the north entrance, according to the report. The deputy began approaching the vehicle on foot, but had to jump to the right to avoid being run over as McNeal continued to drive around the parking lot, the report said. McNeal eventually came to a stop after the deputy banged on his window and gave several commands to stop, according to the report. [McNeals] eyes were bloodshot and glassy, the deputy said. He had an overwhelming odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath, although McNeal reportedly said he had only one beer. It allegedly took three deputies to restrain McNeal, who they said was becoming irate, yelling at authorities and resisting arrest. When deputies asked why he was driving crazy, McNeal said he was trying to show off for a girl he just met in the bar. according o the report. McNeal was released from Columbia County Detention Facility on $3,000 bond. He faces charges of reckless driving, resisting an officer without violence and disorderly intoxication in a public place.Report: Intoxicated driver nearly runs over approaching deputy McNeal CreelMarch 11Tea PartyThe North Central Florida Tea Party will hold its monthly meeting on Tuesday, March 11 at 7 p.m. Please note the change from Thursday.

COMMUNITY CALENDAR By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Lake Shore Hospital Authority Board is continuing its work to determine whether it will sell Shands at Lake Shore Regional Medical Center. Monday night the board authorized its legal counsel, Marlin Feagle, to make changes to the contracts with CBIZ Valuation Group as an appraiser, as well as First Southwest as a transaction broker. The board reviewed contracts and suggested changes to the proposed contracts for an appraiser and transaction broker. The contract proposed by CBIZ was for nine weeks, at a cost of $62,000. A 25 percent retainer fee is due at the beginning of the contract with the balance to be paid on completion of the appraiser. First Southwest, of Phoenix, will plan the sale, market the hospital, take part in the negotiating phase and close the sale. Their timeline is for a 33-week task with a $485,000 cap or $200 $350 per hour. If the hospital is sold, First Southwest would get one percent of the sale amount. However, the decision to sell the hospital will be left entirely to the hospital authority board. Jack Berry, Lake Shore Hospital Authority executive director, said the contracts were approved, pending some legal details. The valuation process is to valuate the assets of the Lake Shore Hospital Authority, he said. The consulting contract and broker is if we decide to sell the hospital, he comes into play. It will probably be 60-90 days before we know. We cant do anything until we get the valuation report back, but we may have a strategic planning meeting in the process. The money for the contracts will come out of the capital improvement fund or operating accounts. In other business, the LSHA board authorized its accountant, Richard Powell, to audit the Health Management Associates (former lessee) records to determine how much infrastructure and capital improvement work was done to the hospital. HMA had a $6 million agreement with LSHA to make improvements at the hospital. HMA recently merged with Community Health Systems and now CHS has the 60 percent interest of Shands Lake Shore, Shands Live Oak and Shands Starke. Rhonda Sherrod, Shands Lake Shore Chief Executive Officer, said there will be no name change at the hospital and no change in operations due to the merger.


T he ATF can’t seem to catch a break ... even when it comes to nam-ing a headquarters building. The Justice Department agency has plans to formally attach the name of its most illustrious alumnus – Elliot Ness of “Untouchables” fame – to its relatively new, archi-tecturally interesting nerve center here but has run into protest from a couple of politicians from Chicago. For those of you too young to be familiar with the Ness story, that’s where Prohibition-era gangsters held sway under the beady eyes of the most infamous of American crime lords, Alfonse Capone, until Ness and his boys helped bring him to the bar of justice on income tax charges. There have been argu-ments ever since over the role Ness and his men, portrayed in a best-selling book, popular TV series and motion picture, actually played in the entire affair. But two things seem abundantly clear. Without the backing of Chicago and Illinois politicians, (where governors to this day seem to have trouble staying out of jail) Capone and his counterparts dur-ing the years of vicious squabbling over illegal liquor turf couldn’t have thrived. Second, there seems to be about as much evidence that Ness did have a significant part in bring-ing down Scarface Al as there is that he didn’t. Actually, Ness went on to a distinguished law enforcement career proving he was more than just a figment of Hollywood’s imagina-tion. And is it Ness’s fault that some author attached the aura of incorruptibility to his name in reviewing a period when almost all the other characters in this bloody Shakespearian drama were just the opposite, including those who held office at the same level of those of the protesters, two aldermen? Those who will make the ultimate decision about whether to honor Ness and his intrepid band with a nod to their prowess, real or imag-ined, should consider that to do otherwise would be to acknowledge that the only winner in this latest revision of history was Capone, who in the long run and with the aid of syphilis beat the system and died in luxury in Florida. Do we really want to enshrine the designer of such legendary events of the St. Valentine’s Day massacre by letting him win in the last analysis? Besides, there is considerable precedent when it comes to attach-ing dubious distinction in these public naming exercises. Take the FBI’s J. Edgar Hoover building for instance. While Hoover was the iconic director of the national police force, his publicized personal achievements were often embel-lished. In fact it is not incorrect to say that the scourge of bank robbers and communists and a whole lot of others who disagreed with him had feet of clay all the way up to his waist. Ask anyone who served in Congress and lived in mortal fear of him while he held forth. Remember those secret files and dossiers he allegedly kept on half of Washington? Just because they were never found doesn’t mean they didn’t exist. It is also accurate to say that ATF agents, including many of the old ones from the days when the agency was in the Treasury Department and went belly to belly with truly bad guys, have spilled as much of their own blood in defense of the law as any federal enforce-ment group. In the process these are guys who have endured less recognition and more malignant attacks than any similar force in U.S. history. In the interest of full disclosure I will say that my son was one of those and never a day went by when I wasn’t concerned about his welfare. So whether Elliot Ness totally deserves the accolade proposed begs the question as to who cares. He was not just made up of whole cloth as my grandmother used to say, but a real live person who obvi-ously did a job tainted only slightly by myth as is often the case in the retelling of events. So back off, Chicago, unless you feel comfort-able with leading a cheer for the bad guys. This is an agency that needs a day in the sun, an escape from the hovering menace of gun slinging lobbyists and politicians whose pre-decessors allowed the Capones of the world to operate with Tommy Gun efficiency. Everybody needs a hero.

BY EMAIL: Eliot Ness’s credentials are untouchable F ree-market economist Milton Friedman popularized the folk saying “There’s no such thing as a free lunch,” taking it as the title for a book. Forty years on, it’s taking on a new meaning with restaurants across the country telling customers there will be an unappetizing “Obamacare surcharge” on their bills. Denver’s KCNC-TV reported Wednesday that Double D’s Sourdough Pizza, a family-owned cafe, will add a new topping on their pies: a 5 percent surcharge to help cover the cost of employees’ health insurance under Obamacare. Owner Ted Dorr estimates that the surcharge will pay for half the cost of coverage for his employees. The rest has to come out of either his pocket or theirs, or both. It’s all a bit of a game, of course. Insurance is a cost of doing business, and a cafe owner could just as logi-cally separate the rising cost of potatoes or cooking oil and put a notice on the menu that he’s charging a quar-ter more for french fries, and here’s why. It’s all marketing, and Obamacare is this season’s loss leader. The president richly deserves the honor, it seems to us. The money, after all, has to come from somewhere to pay for the health insurance mandates imposed by a Democratic Congress with little regard for whether businesses such as the Denver pizzeria could afford it. Nobody in Washington worries about the problems of such shopkeepers very much. Hillary Clinton summed up Washington’s attitude years ago when she was beating the drum for Hillarycare: “I can’t be responsible for every undercapitalized small business in America.” She might not put it quite that way when and if she campaigns for president. Cliff Young, a business professor at the University of Colorado at Denver, says he expects more restaurants and other service-sector businesses to add Obamacare surcharges. In Florida, customers at eight Gator’s Dockside restaurants are greeted with blunt notice at the door: “The costs associated with [Affordable Care Act] compliance could ultimately close our doors. Instead of raising prices on our products to generate the additional rev-enue need to cover the costs of ACA compliance, cer-tain Gator’s Dockside locations have implemented a 1 percent surcharge on all food and beverage purchases only.” (Editor’s note: The Gator’s Dockside in Lake City is not one of the eight participating restaurants.) The upscale Republique restaurant in Los Angeles has been adding a 3 percent Obamacare surcharge, explained on the menu, since opening in November. “Even if this isn’t the perfect solution, it’s definitely a solution,” owner-chef Walter Manske tells a television interviewer, “and so far, there isn’t any other solution.” Obamacare was designed to provide benefits to certain demographic groups without letting on to younger folks that they would be paying far more than their share. Transparency is a good thing, though the Obama Democrats might not think so in November.If Hillary runs, polls say her gender won’t matterR epeat after us: The 2016 election is more than two and a half years away. Hillary Clinton may be a candidate. If she is, Benghazi or Bill Clinton may or may not be issues. Who could possibly know? Now that that’s out of the way, let’s look at something more inter-esting – how much resistance there may be to a female presidential candidate and to Hillary Clinton in particular. Here we have a plethora of polls to provide some tentative answers. Let’s start at the beginning. In the late 1930s, when the Gallup Organization asked people about vot-ing for a woman for president, more than six in 10 said they would not do so. Widespread doubts about a female president were evident even in the question itself: in 1937, respon-dents were asked whether they would vote for a woman president “if she qualified in every other respect”! Fortunately, things have changed a great deal since then. Resistance dropped to around 25 percent by the early 1970s. In 2012, the last time Gallup asked the question, 5 percent said they would not vote for a quali-fied woman their party nominated.... What’s harder to get at from the polls is how many people would vote for Clinton because she is female. And sorting out how many of those people are already Clinton supporters is even harder. Clinton has been in the public eye for more than two decades, first as a presidential candidate’s wife, then first lady, then as a U.S. sena-tor, and later as a presidential candi-date and the secretary of state. The first question about her and the country’s highest office was asked in 1992, before Bill even became president. When Time’s pollsters asked whether she had what it takes to be president, 41 percent weren’t sure, while 19 percent said she did and 40 percent said she did not. Those doubts are largely gone. In Gallup’s February 2014 poll, her favorability stood at an impres-sive 59 percent, with 37 percent viewing her unfavorably. She’s been above 50 percent on this measure in more than a dozen Gallup questions since March 2008. In Quinnipiac University’s January 2014 poll of registered voters, 52 percent said she would make a good president, while 40 percent said she would not. There were predictable partisan splits. Among the key group of independents, 50 percent said she would but 43 percent said she would not. Perhaps as an indication of some gen-der solidarity, 59 percent of women, and forty-nine percent of men, said she would make a good president. Again, we have no idea whether Hillary Clinton will choose to throw her hat in the ring for the 2016 presidential race. But if she does, the polls tell us that very few Americans will dismiss her candida-cy outright because she is a woman. In an era of deeply divided politics, the insignificance of a candidate’s gender is a positive development.

Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, MARCH 11, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: About a year ago, I stopped seeing a man I’ll call “Vince.” Since then he has been stalking me. He sends me texts with photos he took of us while we were dating, but distorts them to make me look like I’m stabbing him in the heart. He sends videos with my head on a dancing Barbie doll. My neighbors tell me they see him drive past my house. (He lives across town.) I refuse to talk to him now because he scares me. Vince has now begun making moves on my cous in “Nancy.” She says their relationship isn’t romantic, but others have told me they have seen them cuddle at restaurants and parks. He still continues to send me scary pictures and emails. How can I tell Nancy about this without her thinking it’s jealous retal iation against their new relationship? I honestly believe he is getting close to her only to spite me and keep an emotional hold on me. His relationship with her has made me afraid to tell her about my personal life or hang out with her for fear that he’ll show up with her. — CONFUSED IN OREGON DEAR CONFUSED: I don’t blame you for feeling intimidated, which is what your stalker is trying to accomplish. You can put an end to it by having your neighbors document his “drive-bys” and turning the pictures, videos and any other communications Vince has sent you over to the police. If he sent them via U.S. mail, the postmarks on the envelopes (and fin gerprints) will prove what he has been up to. It may take a restraining order to put an end to this. As to his relationship with your cousin, I agree that if she has feelings for him, she’ll be reluctant to believe anything you tell her isn’t sour grapes. However, if you show her the texts he’s sending you – I presume they’re time-stamped – she may believe you. DEAR ABBY: I have been dating “Dawn” for more than a year. She has an amazing 7-year-old daughter, “Charise,” who started calling me Dad about six months after her mother and I began dating. I love being a “dad” – going to the park, on trips, helping out at school and telling bedtime stories. The problem is, I don’t love Dawn. We don’t get along well anymore. My mother tells me I should find someone else and have kids of my own, but Charise “feels” like my kid. I can’t imagine losing her. One friend suggested I marry Dawn so I can stay in her daughter’s life, but I want to be in love with the woman I marry. Am I wrong for not wanting to lose a child I consider my daughter, but not wanting to marry someone I don’t love? — SPINNING MY WHEELS IN CALIFORNIA DEAR SPINNING: Charise may “feel” like your child, but she ISN’T. And even though she may call you “Dad,” you AREN’T. Your romance with her mother is already on the downhill slide, so the kindest thing you could do for all concerned is end the relationship. But before you do, it is import ant that you make clear to Charise that it has nothing to do with her or your feel ings for her. Your mother is right. You need to settle down with someone you can love. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t throw your weight around. Let others make their own decisions and you will avoid getting into a heated discussion that will put a damper on your day. Focus on love, affection and being there for the ones you love. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Listen to what’s being said, but don’t feel you have to be a follower. Changes you make at home should add to your comfort or allow you to develop a plan that will bring in extra cash. A partnership must be careful ly considered. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t dillydally. Present the facts and you will get the help you need to follow through with your plans. Love and romance are highlighted and can bring about a change in the way you live in the future. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t get angry; get moving. It’s up to you to follow through with your plans. Don’t feel you have to wait for someone else to make the first move. Good fortune comes to those will ing to go after it. Use your imagination. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you reveal secret informa tion, you will face the conse quences. A move or lifestyle change may be necessary if you want to avoid someone infringing on your space. Invest in you and what you have to offer. Keep moving forward. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Find out who is up to what before you delve into a project that is time-con suming. Make sure there is something in it for you before offering your ser vices. Success will be based on having the best team available. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Stay focused on what’s expected of you and deliver the goods. Overreacting or making a fuss will only make you look bad. Show professionalism and you will secure your position person ally and professionally. Use your charm and intelligence to win. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Sit back and observe. Knowledge is your best weapon when it comes to controversy. Don’t get emotional when there are so many good places to put your energy. Creative changes at home will help you develop a new skill. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Love is in the stars and you can launch exciting ways to move for ward personally. A deal may not be totally above board, but it is likely to bring in cash. Don’t reveal your situation until you know it’s secure. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Maintaining your reputation should take top priority. Avoid getting drawn into an argument. Don’t meddle or offer advice. Protect your posi tion, important partnerships and the way you do busi ness. A force play can be expected if you show signs of weakness. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look at what’s being offered, see what you have to contrib ute and make your move swiftly. Love is highlighted and offering a diverse and unusual romantic scenario will capture someone’s inter est. Invest in your emotional and financial future. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be true to yourself. Size up your situ ation and position yourself for success. Socializing will bring greater personal and professional opportunities. Dealing with younger and older individuals will be inspiring and educational, as well as expand your social options. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Stalker starts dating cousin of woman who dumped him Q Write Dear Abby at or P.O.

The Seminoles were unable to do so in a 74-58 loss to No. 7 Syracuse on Sunday in the regular sea son finale. Florida State got a big game from senior Okaro White, who had 20 points and 11 rebounds, but it wasnt enough. The Seminoles (18-12) likely need to make serious noise in the ACC tourna ment to play their way into the field of 68. Florida State trailed by one point with 12:38 left in the second half, but Syracuse ran away down the stretch. We still showed we can play with anybody, senior guard Ian Miller said. This ACC tournament is going to get real tricky, I think. If we can go up there and make a special run and still make some noise and get where weve got to go. White posted his fifth double-double of the sea son and Miller finished with 16 points while Aaron Thomas chipped in 14. The Orange outshot FSU 48.3 to 38.0 percent.

Florida finished its SEC schedule undefeated at 18-0. UF celebrates on Senior Day Associated Press GAINESVILLE With strands of net behind their ears, Florida seniors Casey Prather, Scottie Wilbekin, Will Yeguete and Patric Young stopped at midcourt and kissed the floor. They stood up, started walking toward the locker room and then paused at the edge of the court. With their arms draped around each other, they took the last stride in unison. It was the first step toward the next goal winning it all. Young scored 18 points in his home finale and No. 1 Florida routed 25thranked Kentucky 84-65 on Saturday, becoming the first team in Southeastern Conference history to go 18-0 in league play. This is the way to go out, Young said. You couldnt have scripted this one any better. ... What else could you want? The Gators (29-2) have won 23 straight and 32 in a row at home. Coach Billy Donovan called timeout with 36.9 seconds remaining to get his four seniors another standing ovation. They certainly deserved this one, especially since it was Floridas largest margin of victory in series history. When you invest four years likes these guys have invested, it means some thing to them, Donovan said. Theyre going to carry this with them for the rest of their lives. Theyre going to have their chil dren and theyre going to come back here and theyre going to be remembered for what theyve done. Theyve done something thats not happened here before.
