Advocates for public access and the Sunshine Law, the FAF published a report card critiquing the websites of 65 counties and 46 cities, using a scorecard to grade each site on a scale of 0 (worst) to 100 (best), with 50 being average. The websites were evaluated by journalism students at the universities of Florida, South Florida and Miami, the report said, who were asked if they could find specific informationranging from budgets to neighborhood crime informationthrough a reasonable search. The scores consisted of how well each website presented seven categories of information: financial, accountability, public meetings, contact information, public records, functionality and other (miscellaneous documents like building/zoning, area crime reports, assessment appeals, etc). Columbia County scored a 77, earning a perfect score for meetings, records and other categories, ranking it third in the state behind Miami Dade (81) and Sarasota (84).

Due to low enrollment in recent years, FGC officials have decided to place the program on hiatus and re-evaluate it in three years, according to a press release. The move comes a year after administrators shortened the previously three-year program to two years, having already closed the Turf Equipment Management portion of the curriculum.

Athletes paying homage to Wild West traditions will participate in a series of events including tie-down roping, steer wrestling, team roping, bull riding, barrel racing, bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and more at the Columbia County Fairgrounds Friday, March 14 to Sunday, March 16.

The National Transportation Safety Board reported Wednesday that the tire involved in the crash, a two-year-old BFGoodrich Commercial T/A A/S, was part of a prod uct recall initiated by BFGoodrich for approximately 794,000 tires. On Feb. 21, a van from the First Baptist Church in New Port Richey was traveling on Interstate 75 near Lake City when the left rear tire blew out. Two adults were killed in the resulting crash, while another adult and seven juveniles were injured. The NTSB says it will examine the tire and review the effectiveness of the recall process to determine whether the First Baptist Church ever received the safety recall notice. A spokesman for Michelin, BFGoodrichs parent company, says Failed tire was part of recall TIRE continued on 3A Two died in Feb. crash of church van


2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING THURSDAY, MARCH 13, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 DADE CITY — All evi dence can be made public in the case of a retired Tampa police captain who fatally shot a man in a movie theater after a dis pute over texting, a judge ruled Wednesday. Judge Pat Siracusa ruled during a hearing in Pasco County Court after the defense and prosecution said they had no objec tions. The next court hear ing was set for July 9, and the trial isn’t expected to begin for several months. Curtis Reeves, 71, is charged with second-de gree murder in the killing of Chad Oulson, who died in a Wesley Chapel movie theater on Jan. 13. Reeves is being held without bail in the Pasco County Jail. His attorneys say that Reeves was acting in self-defense. Reeves told police that the 43-year-old Oulson hit him in the face, possibly with a cellphone. But other wit nesses, including Reeves’ wife, said they never saw Oulson strike Reeves. His attorney, Dino Michaels, said Wednesday that the defense team is doing its own investigation. “This man’s life is on the line,” Michaels said, refer ring to Reeves’ age. “Any kind of sentence he receives is a death sentence.” A P P A A ,!+%#)49!,-!.!# œ iV>] `>> >` }>…ˆV ^ "£ 7 i>…i ni>] *] >`ˆœ] 7 ˆ i>…i'Lˆ…i Vœ “ -1 "" 56).$%8 (;75(0( PLQXWHV WR EXU Q / œ`> '>‡ˆœi >`ˆ>ˆœ ˆŽ vœ …i > i> œ > V>i v œ“ œ £ &9) !NEXCLUSIVE SERVICE BROUGHTTO OURREADERS BY 4HE7EATHER #HANNEL 30/.3/2%$ "9 nˆ 4(%7%!4(%2 7% 4(%2 ()3 4/29 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> () ,/ ,/ () ,/ () ,/ () ,/ () 13 14 15 16 17 FridaySaturday Cape Canaveral 73/58/pc78/61/pc Daytona Beach 69/56/pc76/60/pc Fort Myers 78/57/pc82/62/pc Ft.

Oprah Winfrey.“What I Know for Sure” features the monthly essays that Winfrey has written for O, the Oprah Magazine over the past 14 years. Flatiron Books, a new nonfic tion imprint of Macmillan, announced Wednesday that “What I Know for Sure” will come out Sept. 2. It will be the imprint’s first release. According to Flatiron, the book will be organized around such themes as joy, gratitude and possibility. Winfrey has said she named her column “What I Know for Sure” after film critic Gene Siskel asked her “What do you know for sure?” during an interview. She has called the columns a way of “taking stock” of her life. Winfrey will write the introduction. Marcia Gay Harden talks role of ‘Fifty Shades’ mom NEW YORK — Since being cast in the film adaptation of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” Jamie Dornan, who plays the S&M-loving billionaire Christian Grey, has largely stayed out of the public eye. Aside from being spotted on the streets of Vancouver, British Columbia, while filming the movie, the 31-year-old Dornan hasn’t walked any red carpets or really talked about the role. He did tweet on Jan. 1 from his official account, “looking forward to 2015,” which hinted at the film’s scheduled release next February. (That tweet was retweeted more than 5,000 times.) This aura of mystery surrounding Dornan is a good thing, says Marcia Gay Harden, who plays his character’s mother in the film. “I think the point is to have somebody mysterious because if you have somebody with too much pedigree to them ... you can’t stop thinking about the pedigree. ... I think that would be very hard to do for that role, so I think it’s good that he’s a bit of a mystery.” Actor Chris Pine charged in New Zealand with DUI WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Hollywood actor Chris Pine, known for playing Captain Kirk in the “Star Trek” movies, has been charged with drunken driving in New Zealand. New Zealand Police said in a statement that a 33-year-old American was charged March 1 with driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit, which in New Zealand is .08 percent. The 33-year-old American is due to appear on Monday, court officials said.

Cheryl Curry Register, 49, died in a crash at the intersection of 155th Road and 76th Street around 10:45 p.m. Tuesday, according to an FHP media release. Investigators said Register was traveling north in her 2002 Ford F-250 on 155th and failed to stop at the 76th Street stop sign, the release said. Registers truck continued moving through the three-way intersection, struck a street sign and several pine trees before coming to rest, FHP said. Investigators said Register was not wearing a seatbelt. She was pronounced dead at the scene by Suwannee County Fire Rescue, FHP said.

Jeff Novak, 52, the driver, and Michalanne Salliotte, 44, both of New Port Richey, were killed in the crash, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Three teenagers were transported to UF Health Shands in Gainesville, FHP said. The crash occurred at 8:15 a.m. in a northbound lane of I-75 at the 427 mile marker, near the U.S. 90 on ramp. The entrance ramp to northbound I-75 from westbound U.S. 90 and two northbound lanes of I-75 were closed for about two hours following the wreck. According to FHP, Novak was northbound in the center lane in a 2002 Ford E-350 van when the tread separated from the left rear tire. The van traveled onto the east shoulder of the roadway and overturned. According to FHP, several of the vehicles occupants were ejected. Pace said FHP crash investigators have not yet determined how many times the van flipped, but it came to final rest on its left side. As word of the tragedy spread, local pastors and others rallied to offer comfort to survivors and provide them a place to stay until family members arrived from New Port Richey.The Associated Press contributed to this report. TIREContinued From 1ALake City registered a 40, ranking it 37th out of the 46 cities surveyed, on par with Fort Pierce (40) and just ahead of Boca Raton (38). The city of Jacksonville ranked first (80) and Blountstown (2) last. However, the scores do not reflect an agencys response to public records requests nor do they reflect the actions of officials or custodians outside of the website. For example, Columbia County lost five points under the accountability category for not posting a complete list of employees names and salaries onlineeven though the county has volunteered this information in phys ical format during public meetings. Similarly, Lake City lost two points for not having any employees listed as records custodians, even though the city directs certain staff in each department to handle public records requests, such as the city clerk or the Records Division of LCPD. The FAF acknowledges that many websites make a real effort to be helpful to citizens, it argued that too few include clear statements of citizens rights to public records and how to access them online. On most websites, its far easier to pay a water bill than it is to find out how much a government is paying to run the water departmentand whos selling services to the department, FAF President Barbara Petersen wrote.FinancialThis category judged how easily a citizen might find an agencys budget, budget analysis, check register, spending reports, revenue, audits and tax information. Most [cities/counties] posted some manner of analysis, FAF said. But breakdowns of revenue and spending were often not posted separately and had to be derived by studying the budget.AccountabilityThis category judged the availability of various data pertaining to employee salary, vendors, contracts, leases, lobbyists and more. Scores in this category were dismal, the FAF said. Even the governments that do a good job of showing how much money they take in and how much they spend do a poor job of informing taxpayers about where that money actually goes and who influences how it is spent.Public MeetingsThis score reflected how well the FAF believes agencies presented information pertaining to upcoming public meetings and citi zens rights during such. Both the city and county did well hereColumbia was one of six counties to get a perfect score, while the city lost three points for not including citizens rights and links to laws, according to the report.Contact InformationThis category judged whether agencys website included in their contact information elected officials, terms of office, senior officials, financial disclosure forms and conflict disclosure forms. Both the city and the county lost points for not including online financial disclosures and conflict of interest forms filed by government officials.Public RecordsTopics of this category included whether websites listed rights statements, links to state law, policies and procedures, electronic access, tracking and more. Most cities and counties performed poorly, posting an average of seven out of 16 possible points. However, Columbia County and the city of Jacksonville were the two sole perfect scores. Although Lake City registered a zero, it should be noted that its website does indicate which government officials to contact for public records requests.FunctionalityThis category measured a websites ease of use, including access to downloadable information, searchable queries, one click features, a site index and feedback forms. Virtually every site allows users to download information, the report said. Although documents like budgets are usually available only as PDFs, meaning the data in them cant be conveniently crunched.Other FeaturesThis section included scores over the availability of documents like building/zoning regulations, area crime reports, assessments and others. While Columbia County registered a perfect score, the city only had one point in the category, satisfying the hearings, agendas criterion. The report noted that smaller groups sometimes outperformed their larger counterparts. For example, Columbia County with a population under 70,000 scored 33 points higher than Hillsborough County and their 1.2 million residents. Likewise, Hialeah (pop. 225,000) trailed Ft. Walton Beach (pop. 20,000) by 35 points. The FAF suggested government agencies make additions to their websites, such as including lists of expenditures to companies and individuals, notification when officials have conflict of interests and more literature outlining citizens rights to public information. Though Florida cities and counties have entered the Internet ageall of the 47 cities and 65 of the 66 counties surveyed had websitesmost have a long way to go before their governments can be considered proactively transparent, the report concluded.Lake City10/20 5/20 17/20 3/5 0/16 4/10 1/9 40/100Columbia County12/20 9/20 20/20 3/5 16/16 8/10 9/9 77/100 . .

P ull yourself away from the nonstop TV news about the lost Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 for just a few minutes. Let’s look back at what we’ve just learned about our 21st-century selves. We are surrounded by our personal high-tech indulgences and necessities. We drive cars with OnStar technology that enables someone to locate us every moment. Our GPS devices enable us to find any place, any time. Our smartphones, tablets and laptops can talk to one another anywhere on Earth via Wi-Fi that links with orbiting satellites and stores data in clouds, for goodness sake. But we are hunting for Malaysia Flight 370 almost the same way we hunted for Amelia Earhart’s plane. Radar technology is basically old and hasn’t helped much. The airplane’s transponder (that at least tells the ground where it is) was manually turned off or at least stopped functioning in mid-flight. So the experts have told us it comes down to this: The only sure way we’ll know what happened to the plane is to first find it. Then maybe we’ll find the black box that can tell us what really happened to the plane. Or maybe not. And we’ve found one more tech gap that’s perhaps even more off-putting (see also: terrifying). In many exotic places around the plan-et, we are still protecting ourselves from the possibility that evil-doers may be traveling with fake identities and stolen passports about as well as we protected ourselves in the run-up to Sept. 11, 2001. Malaysia Airlines employees apparently failed to check manually their daily worldwide list of stolen passports and compare them with their Flight 370 manifest. Now we know two passengers were not the Europeans their passports said they were – they were Iranians, using passports the world knew were sto-len in Thailand. Whoa. What the hell is the matter with us? Why haven’t our leaders and experts done a better job of safe-guarding us with 21st-century travel technology when we fly? And, since we are asking, why haven’t those of us in the news media – who play roles of watchdogs and agenda-set-ters – alerted the post-9/11 world to these gaps? Let’s start with the stolen passports, because that should be easy to fix. If you lose your ticket to a concert or football game, you can tell authorities and no one will be able to enter the theater or stadium with your lost/stolen ticket. Airline computer systems must be reprogrammed so passengers using stolen passports will be auto-matically red-flagged and prevented from boarding a plane. It can be done – now. Our safety cannot depend upon an airline employee’s human error, laziness or criminal indifference. Now, about those black boxes. It is absurd that the world was put into a position where it has no reliable info on where Malaysia Airlines plane was flying when it went down. But we also now know that there is far more we can do. On Tuesday, March 11, The Washington Post’s Brian Fung published an important and informative article that showed us there is more world and airline industry officials can and should be doing. While airlines in the United States are required to have an emergency locator transmitter, the International Civil Aviation Organization, which sets global standards for emergency locator transmitters, cannot mandate that all countries require their use in airlines. “The Federal Aviation Administration wants to transi-tion to a next-generation air traffic control system that uses satellites to keep tabs on planes,” Fung reported. The new technology, replacing our World War II era’s radar technology, is called “Next Gen. Satellites” and can monitor wide expanses including oceans. It can work along with another sys-tem called “automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast,” in which planes can use satellites to transmit system information instantly back to air controllers. In the meantime, of course, passengers could have used cellphones to transmit info instantaneously via Wi-Fi, except for one problem. Their Malaysia Airlines plane didn’t have Wi-Fi. All of this could have already been put into practice if our leaders had taken the initiative. And that might have happened if our agenda-setters in the media had recognized the importance of their work. But we are all lagging. That informative piece by the Post’s Fung wasn’t even a news story. It was a blog, titled “The Switch.” Since readers may never have spotted online, the newspaper’s editors at least reprinted it Tuesday – in a nar-row one-column-wide strip on page A13. If that important piece had run at the top of Page One, who knows? Maybe even members of Congress might have read it and been moti-vated to act on it.

BY EMAIL: 21st-century travel, 20th-century technology PINELLAS COUNTY D avid Jolly’s victory Tuesday in the U.S. House District 13 special elec-tion represents a clear repudiation of Obamacare. Jolly built a campaign meant to appeal to faithful Republicans and front-and-center in that campaign was his vow to repeal President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement. The message obviously appealed to independents as well. On Tuesday, voters chose his conservative platform over the pledge by Democrat Alex Sink to fix Obamacare and work as a consensus builder in Washington. Sink is a centrist who probably gave Democrats their best chance at a district that is f airly evenly split between Republicans and Democrats. But she could not ease voters’ anxieties about the massive government overreach of Obamacare. And it didn’t hurt Jolly’s cause that he was born in the district, while Sink only recently moved there from Thonotosassa to run for the seat. Jolly is a thoughtful man, with strong conservative values. But he also pledges to be independent-minded and we’re confident he will display the grit that repeatedly propelled the late C.W. “Bill” Young to victory when running for this congres-sional seat over the past four decades. Young, who died in October, never let party politics deter him from doing what was best for constituents. He was strong on defense while supporting environmental protections, and he was a fiscal conservative who balanced budget cuts with investments in infrastruc ture that benefited the entire Tampa Bay area. Jolly’s familiarity with the inner workings in Washington from his years as an aide and gen-eral counsel to Young should help the area when Congress begins considering deep cuts to military budgets. He also has vowed to support policies that will rein in spending and help balance the nation’s bloated budget. Sink, the former state chief financial officer and bank executive who narrowly lost the governor’s race four years ago, mostly sought to take a middle ground. Though she rejected the call to repeal Obamacare, Sink stressed the law’s shortcomings and the need for remedies. But the majority of vot-ers undoubtedly understood she would have been forced to side with Rep. Nancy Pelosi and a nationa l Democratic Party that is far to the left of most th e district’s residents and, we believe, most American s. Jolly was wise to hammer away at the unpopular Obamacare. Democrats around the nation should be worried about this outcome. Maybe this will get them to consider an overhaul of the health care act That issue, and the fact a Democrat had not won the district in decades, fueled an unprecedented amount of spending on negative advertisements that misrepresented both candidates. But Jolly’s victory suggests to us that voters know what they want, and it’s not Obamacare. A setback for reform T here is no doubt, as Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., told colleagues last week, that members of Congress trust the military chain of command. The prob-lem, she pointed out, is that victims of sexual assault do not. The Department of Defense found that in 2012, there were an estimated 26,000 sexual assaults in the military – but only 3,374 were reported. And fewer than 10 percent of those – 302 – were prosecuted. Such abysmal numbers led Gillibrand to write a bill placing responsibility for sexual assault cases in the hands of seasoned pros-ecutors rather than military commanders. And they were enough to persuade a majority of Gillibrand’s colleagues to support her bill Thursday, including both Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., as well as tea party firebrand Ted Cruz, R-Texas. But a majority wasn’t enough. Gillibrand’s bill was defeated on a procedural vote when it fell five votes short of a filibuster-proof majority. In its place, the Senate unanimously passed a much tamer bill by Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., that would get rid of the “good soldier” defense that allows the positive service record of an accused to be taken into account. Opponents of the measure, such as McCaskill; Carl Levin, D-Mich.; and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. – all members of the Senate Armed Services Committee – worried that Gillibrand’s bill would undermine commanders’ authority. And, they say, there’s no proof that taking sex-ual assault cases out of command-ers’ hands would discourage retalia-tion or promote more reporting. The proof, it would seem, is in the numbers. Given the military’s cate-gorical failure in dealing with sexual assaults, anything that seriously shakes up the military justice system would have been an improvement.

The college will instead offer an 18-credit online certification in horticulture that will offer a base of knowledge for students seeking a career in golf and landscaping operations. It was a difficult decision but we hope that, in the end, this will strengthen the colleges positioning in the area and allow us to focus on growing programs that we are now beginning to offer, said FGC Public Information Coordinator Troy Roberts. The Golf Landscape Operations department consisted of two AS degree programs, Golf Course Operations and Landscape Technology, and had its first graduating class in 1969. The primary driver was the golf industry, according to program director John Piersol. They were demanding a program to educate students to become assistant superintendents. The original graduated class had only four golf students and two landscapers, but continued to grow over the years. The golf industry was growing gangbusters in the state of Florida in the 70s, 80s and 90s, Piersol said. However, times have changed and interest from prospective students began to wane. The golf industry has flattened out a bit, he said. I think the biggest factor is that young people are not working labor-type jobs like they did before and they dont discover this career very easily without working in it. Piersol said the threeyear hiatus shouldnt be interpreted as the programs end, but rather a time for re-evaluation. I dont want people to get the impression that were closing the program were not were transforming it, he said. If theres strong demand again for the AS degrees or something similar, we will do that, were keeping that option open. Were just transforming the program from the old model to something thats more appealing to todays student, referring to the online certification. GOLFContinued From 1A

Lake Citys Brandon Cameron has decked out his 22B late model race car in pink to help the charity. A buddy who sponsored my car down south passed away four years ago from cancer and I have wanted to do something, Cameron said. We put the name on the car to support them and bring in money. We will bring the car around to any place they want it to go. On Saturday, the Tough Enough to Wear Pink No. 22B will be parked at the Florida Gateway Pro Rodeo. Saturday night is Pink Night at the Rodeo, Columbia County Resources Manager Linda Dowling said. He took the expense of wrapping his car in pink and we are really excited about it. Dowling said Columbia County Resources operates the Columbia County Crisis Fund, dating back to 2006. It is the only fund in Columbia County where all proceeds go to help citizens of Columbia and surround ing counties to pay medi cal bills, Dowling said. Originally we gave funds to the American Cancer Society and its Buddy Check 11 Program. Cameron plans to let chil dren sit in his race car for pictures. He also will hand out autographed pictures of the Tough Enough to Wear Pink car. Dowling said other plans for Pink Night are to paint the chutes pink and every one is encouraged to wear pink to support the crisis fund. Wrangler originally started the Wear Pink for rodeos and we adapted it in Lake City for the Florida Gateway Pro Rodeo, Dowling said. The rodeo the arena is next to the Columbia County Fairgrounds begins at 8 p.m. Friday with the gates opening at 6 p.m. On Saturday, gates open at 4 p.m. for the Rodeo Kids Zone and the rodeo starts at 8 p.m. On Sunday, the gates open at noon and the rodeo begins at 2 p.m. With Cameron, Columbia County Resources not only got a supporter, but a hot driver. Cameron won the late model race at North Florida Speedway on Saturday. When the traveling drivers stopped in for an event on the way to Daytona Beach, Cameron won the pole in the Super Late Model Class and placed third in the race. We needed to start the year out good, Cameron said.

Lady Tigers beat Buchholz By BRANDON FINLEY Columbia Highs softball team had to play a new role on Wednesday. The Lady Tigers were a team looking for revenge. Buchholz High came into town as the last team to beat the Lady Tigers before they went on their streak to capture the FHSAA Class 6A State Championship. In the top of the first inning, it looked like Buchholz might be the first team to hand the Lady Tigers a loss this season. Columbia quickly put an end to that. The Lady Tigers rallied for three runs in the bottom of the first inning on the way to a 5-3 victory. Cassidy McDilda hit a two-run homer off Ashley Shoup to score Erin Eiland to make it 2-0 before head coach Jimmy Williams put in Anderson for the rest of the game for Columbia. Anderson would also give up a home run in the sec ond inning a solo shot to Kaylee Smith. Buchholz was held off the bases the rest of the way with the exception of two walks. Columbia started its rally early, with three runs com ing in the bottom of the first. Kayli Kvistad drove in the Lady Tigers first run with a single to score Lacey King, who had reached on a walk. Hollianne Dohrn followed with a double to score Kvistad and Brandy Morgan to make it 3-2. After a solo homer in the top of the second to tie CHS rallies after falling behind 2-0 for 5-3 victory.

It could be a blueprint for the next two years in how to set up a golf course. The NCAA men’s and women’s golf champion-ships in 2015 are being held at The Concession in Bradenton in back-to-back weeks, the first time they are being played on the same course in the same year. Q The International Golf Federation is waiting for approval on eligibility for the Olympics. The IGF has proposed a 60-person field for 72 holes of stroke play, with the field determined by the world ranking. The top 15 in the world rank-ing at the cutoff would be guaranteed a spot, with a maximum of four from one country. NCAA following USGA blueprint


Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, MARCH 13, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: When I was in my early 20s, I had a baby boy I placed for adoption. I could barely take care of myself, let alone a newborn. The father wanted nothing to do with me or the baby, so I placed him with his relatives out of state, who adopted him. With counseling, I got my life back on track, finished college and got a good job. I am married now and have a family. After 20 years, this child, “Fred,” called me. We talked every night for a few weeks and I invited him here to live with me. BIG MISTAKE! Long story short, Fred is greedy, lazy and expects everyone to wait on him. He refuses to look for a job or go to school, and he expects me to pay all his expenses. I called his adoptive family. They said when things don’t go his way, Fred pouts and doesn’t communicate until he needs money. They feel exactly as I do -he should get a job or go to school. Abby, my family loves Fred and welcomed him with open arms, but I feel detached from him. As soon as I learned I was pregnant, I began separating myself because I knew it would be difficult to let go. I do not regard Fred as a member of my family and have no maternal feelings for him. I’d be OK if I knew he was doing well -from a distance. But I’d prefer not to maintain a rela tionship. I don’t love this young man, and I don’t know what to say when he says, “Love you, Mom.” Am I wrong to feel this way? Is there any one else out there who feels as I do? My family is trying to guilt me into accepting him, but I can’t. It’s not because of his greedy behavior, although that’s part of it. Have others had a simi lar experience? — SINCERELY NOT HIS MOM DEAR SINCERELY: I’m printing your letter because although many adoption reunions go well, not all of them do. If other birth mothers would like to share their experiences, I’m inviting them to do so. However, I do have this to offer: Do NOT allow yourself to be trapped into doing any thing with which you are not comfortable. Your feelings may be based on the circumstances surrounding Fred’s birth. They may also result from your disap pointment in his lack of character. While you will always be Fred’s birth mother, you are NOT his “mom.” That distinction belongs to the woman who raised him. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let impulse get the better of you. Take a moment to decipher all the angles before you make an impromptu decision that can affect your reputation, status or position. A part nership or collaboration will help you stay on track. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Stick to your principles and follow through with the plans you have in place. Someone you have worked with in the past will have a lead or want to do you a favor, but double check the informa tion or ask for an offer in writing. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put your efforts into work, money, getting along with your colleagues and applying for any kind of advancement up for grabs. Love is on the rise, and an emotional conversation will bring you closer to better living arrangements. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Bypass anyone creating problems or trying to drag you into an altercation or no-win situation. You don’t need to invite unnecessary change into your life when it’s obvious you should be innovative and developing what you have already started. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make changes that will bring you joy and hap piness. Whether you focus on self-improvement or making positive changes to your personal life and relationships, you will end up satisfied with the choice you make. Investments are favored. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Find out the source of any tidbit of informa tion that comes your way before sharing with others. It is likely that someone will mislead you in order to buy time. What you offer may end up being used against you. Sit tight and observe. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t be railroad ed by someone who is pushy or demanding. You must make choices based on what’s best for you. Mentally and physically, you can achieve happiness and success if you follow your heart and your intu ition. Put love first. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stick to creative projects, travel or exploring places you have never been before. An emotional issue that affects your living arrange ment must be dealt with cautiously. Someone from your past can be of help to you now. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Listen to what’s being said and assess the situation thor oughly before you pro ceed. An exaggeration is likely to perk your interest, but shouldn’t entice you to get involved in something risky. Focus on love and personal improvement. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Move in a direction that will allow you to follow your person al or professional goals. Don’t worry about the changes others make. Keep moving forward and walk away from any one looking for a fight. Disagreements will not help you get ahead. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Assess your situation and make your move. Don’t linger when timing will be crucial with regard to what you achieve. Make changes based on intuitive intelli gence and you will find a way to secure any legal or financial matter you face. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Tie up loose ends. Look over important papers and investments that can help you raise your standard of living. Personal changes based on hidden assets or money that comes from an unusual source will improve your financial situ ation. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Boy given up for adoption returns to mixed welcome Q Write Dear Abby at or P.O.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Florida center Patric Young goes for a lay-up against Kentucky on Saturday. UF draws comparisons to 07 basketball champions By MARK LONG Associated Press GAINESVILLE The comparisons have started and surely will continue the further Florida advances in the postseason. Theyre inevitable, really, since the football-first school is a little short on basketball tradition. Throw in everything the top-ranked Gators have accomplished this season, and it makes sense to mea sure them against coach Billy Donovans best. Florida has won a school-record 23 consecu tive games, clinched the Southeastern Conference regular-season title for the third time in four years and became the first team from a major conference to go 18-0 in league play since Indiana in 1976. The team is a virtual lock to be a No. 1 seed, maybe even the overall top seed, in the upcoming NCAA tourna ment. No doubt, the Gators are good. But how well do they stack up against the 2007 team? Those Gators, who were the overall No. 1 seed, handled season-long hype and all-or-nothing expectations to become the first since Duke in 1993 to win back-to-back national titles. Most would say its not really close. The talent level is total ly different, Donovan said Monday. If youre looking at the talent level in terms of guys going on and play ing in the NBA, you know, we had three guys get drafted in the top 10. Tigers avenge loss against Suwannee By BRANDON FINLEY With a 10-2 record, los ing isnt something that Columbia Highs baseball team has become accus tomed to this season. The Tigers got a little revenge for one of their only two losses on Tuesday as Columbia knocked off Suwannee High, 9-5, in Live Oak. Dalton Mauldin picked up the win after throwing a complete game. He allowed nine hits, walked two and struck out seven to give up three earned runs to the Bulldogs. Its been a while since hes thrown, Columbia head coach Heath Phillips said. After they scored four on us in the first, he settled down and found his groove. He was the same old Dalton. While the Bulldogs bats were going well, Columbia was on fire at the plate. Ever Tiger starter that stepped up to the plate reached base against Suwannee, led by Tyler Myrick with two hits. Steven Rendell, Caleb Vaughn, Levi Hollingsworth, Alex Milton, Kaleb Thomas, Jason Plyn and Mauldin also had hits. Jordan Culp reached base twice on walks and once after being hit by a pitch. Hollingsworth also reached once after being hit. Plyn was effective driving in runs as well with three RBIs in the game. Milton had two RBIs. Vaughn, Thomas and Mauldin each had one RBI. Myrick, Culp and Milton each scored two runs, while Rendell, Vaughn and Hollingsworth had a run apiece. We swung it, Phillips said. We had some big hits when we needed them in two-out situations. Columbia was tied 5-5 heading into the seventh inning when Milton drove in Hollingsworth to start the four-run inning on the way to the 9-5 final. Columbia plays host to Middleburg High at 7 p.m. on Friday in a district contest. the game at 3-3, the Lady Tigers took the lead for good off a two-run homer from Dohrn. Shes doing a really good job behind the plate and driving in big runs when we need them, Williams said. Shes hav ing quality at-bats. We get a few more doing that and well be all right. Shes stepped up her game and shes turned into a leader of this team.
