This issue has been argued nationwide since school shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut, Virginia Tech University, Columbine High School in Colorado and others. One side believes armed officials are better equipped to handle an emergency situation. The other argues that more guns in schools only increase the odds of something happening. The bill (HB 753) approved 8-4 by House Justice Appropriations committee is sponsored by Greg Steube, a Republican from Sarasota. It gives schools the option to appoint former or current law enforcement officers and former or current military officers with state-legislated training to carry firearms on campus. They would be required to go through 40 hours of school-safety training and eight hours of active-shooter training each year. They also would need four hours of firearm qualification annually. Theyd be required to have a carry-and-conceal permit. Local school boards or principals would make the appointments. Next up for the House bill is the Judiciary Committee. Steube argued that school-shooting incidents such as Sandy Hook take place in a matter of minutes that is less than many average police response times. A trained, armed official on the property could save lives before police arrive. I think the schools themselves would appreciate knowing that somebody highly trained was there, Rep. Charles Van Zant, R-Palatka, said, so that some idiot that brought a gun to school with the intention of killing people could be stopped at a far sooner place than calling law enforcement, which might take a good long time to get there. Representatives for the Florida School Board Association and Parent Teacher Association opposed the bill. The PTA would rather have further investment in school resource officers and intervention programs. FSBA believes that only highly trained professional law enforcement officers can be entrusted with weaponry on our school grounds, said school board representative Ruth Melton.Guns in schools one step closer Bill would allow trained personnel to be armed.Plea deal struck in fatal robberyBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA man facing felony murder charges in the 2012 shooting death of a convenience store owner will serve 20 years in prison in exchange for his testimony against the alleged gunman.

There was also concern with having volunteers in these positions regard less of their training. “There are things we can do other than add ing more guns to the school that can keep our children safe,” said Rep. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg, who has sheriffs in his district on both sides of the issue. The accompanying Senate bill (SB 968) was approved by the Criminal Justice committee and is waiting to be heard in the Education committee. It wasn’t brought up at the last two education meet ings. “If they don’t want to do it, they don’t have to do it,” Steube said. “My local school board members, who I just met with last week, they had a very different opinion on the legislation and they might actually take advantage of it. GUNSContinued From 1ABy JIM TURNER The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE — A National Rifle Association-backed mea sure to allow people without con cealed weapons licenses to pocket their guns during emergencies squeaked out of the Senate com mittee where it has been on hold for two weeks. The Senate Military and Veterans Affairs, Space and Domestic Security Committee spent less than 15 minutes on Tuesday pri marily taking public testimony on the emergency-carry measure (SB 296) before approving it with a 5-4 vote and no debate. The measure still has one scheduled stop before reaching the Senate floor. A similar House proposal (HB 209) is ready for a full floor vote. Both proposals are opposed by the Florida Sheriffs Association, but have found support from the Florida National Guard, under pressure from Gov. Rick Scott. Senate sponsor Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, twice delayed votes on his proposal because he lacked the support to carry the measure forward. But on Tuesday, Sen. Joseph Abruzzo, a Royal Palm Beach Democrat who was absent from the prior two meetings, gave Brandes the swing vote he need ed. Abruzzo’s vote was needed to offset a “no” from Sen. Charlie Dean, an Inverness Republican and former Citrus County sheriff. Abruzzo, who served in the mil itary reserves, said there was no arm twisting for his support. “I am where I am, I think the legislation meets a purpose,” said Abruzzo, “I supported it right off the bat.” Currently, people can bring their guns with them when follow ing evacuation orders, but the fire arms must be securely encased and not in the person’s physical possession. Brandes’s bill would create an exemption to state law regarding concealed weapons by allowing individuals who have not quali fied for the licenses to keep their guns with them when ordered to relocate after a governor-declared state of emergency, such as a riot, hurricane or wildfire. “I just needed everybody to show up to vote,” Brandes said after the meeting. Emergency guns measure clears committee of cocaine and possessed marijuana. In addition to Wilson, Franklin Rolle and Jones being arrested on drug-re lated charges, Michael Rolle and Hawkins Jr. were also detained because they “began to interfere with offi cers who were attempting to conduct the investigation,” according to the release. All five were arrested and booked into Columbia County Detention Facility. Wilson was released on $2,000 bond and faces charges of possession of less than 20 grams of mar ijuana. Michael Rolle was held without bond and faces charges of resisting an offi cer without violence and a probation violation. Franklin Rolle was released on $20,000 bond and faces charges of posses sion of cocaine with intent to sell and sale of cocaine. Jones was released on $20,000 bond and faces possession of cocaine with intent to sell and sale of cocaine. Hawkins was released on $2,000 bond and faces a charge of resisting an offi cer without violence. ARRESTSContinued From 1ABy JIM TURNER The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE — During a politically charged bill-signing ceremony, Gov. Rick Scott gave final approval Wednesday to roll ing back vehicle-registration fees that were increased in 2009 amid state budget woes. Scott repeatedly noted that the unpopular fee increases were enacted under former Gov. Charlie Crist, who is seeking to unseat Scott during this November’s election. “We’re going to right the wrong of this 2009 tax increase that Charlie Crist enact ed,” Scott said. The bill (SB 156) signed by Scott, one of his “critical” priorities for this spring’s legislative session, is expected to save Floridians between $20 and $25 per vehi cle registration, with the total depending on the size of the vehicle. Kevin Cate, a spokesman for Crist’s campaign, responded to Scott’s announce ment by saying the “ridiculous press con ference” exposed the current governor’s “political desperation.” “Everyone knows that Charlie Crist signed one of the largest tax cuts (a prop erty tax cut) in the history of Florida and was also forced to make tough decisions to prevent devastating blows to teachers, stu dents, first responders, and our most vul nerable Floridians,” Cate said in an email. The fee cuts will take effect Sept. 1. Vehicle fee cuts ‘right the wrong’ police say shot Patel to death during the robbery. According to police, Johnson and Grandison entered the store at about 1:30 p.m. and demand ed at gunpoint that Patel’s wife, Daxa Patel, give them money from behind the counter. She complied, but when Rajni Patel entered from a back room, Grandison allegedly shot him. Sheena Marie Grandison, Johnson’s wife and Ernest Larry Grandison’s daughter, was also facing first-degree murder charges for her role in the rob bery but was allowed to plead guilty to a charge of aiding and abetting and received probation. Sheena Marie Grandison, who was present at Wednesday’s pro ceedings, drove Johnson to the store and left the scene without Johnson or Grandison Sr. in her vehicle, investigators say. Sentencing in the case has been deferred until later this month. If Judge Julian Collins is inclined to deviate from the terms of the plea agreement, Johnson can withdraw his plea. “Mr. Johnson accepted the plea because he felt it was in his best interest,” Defense Attorney Cliff Wilson said, deferring any additional comments until after sentencing. Johnson answered “no sir” when Collins asked whether he was pressured into accepting the plea deal. “A plea offer has been made by the state and accept ed by the defen dant,” Prosecutor John Durrett said. “The matter was reset until April 21 to insure the victim’s family can be present should they so desire.” Durrett declined to speak fur ther about the plea. Johnson was arrested by Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents on May 19, 2012, in Jacksonville. He was later transferred to the Columbia County Detention Facility. Johnson married Grandison’s daughter, Sheena Marie Grandison, in Ohio on Sept. 19, 2011. A woman identifying herself as Jo Ellen Poindexter Roberts, Johnson’s mother, called the Lake City Reporter from Ohio in 2012. She said her son had no pre vious criminal history “because he is not a bad kid,” she said. “He didn’t have a bad life and he didn’t grow up in a bad home His family loves him. Unfortunately, he just got around some bad people.” Johnson was working at UPS when he and Sheena Grandison were married, records show. She was self-employed. Roberts said after their mar riage, the couple moved to Florida. Up to that point, Johnson had lived his entire live in Ohio. Under terms of the deal, Johnson would also have to pay court costs but he will get cred it for the time he has already served. He is currently being housed in the Hamilton County Jail. Johnson agreed to the terms of the plea agreement during court proceedings Wednesday afternoon in Courtroom 2 of the Columbia County Courthouse. The proceeding began at 2:30 p.m. and lasted approximately 15 minutes. JOHNSONContinued From 1A Ernest Grandison Sheena Grandison

Joe Negron is right that some state colleges are guilty of mission creep in rushing to offer four-year degree programs. But his solution — to strip author-ity from the Board of Education to approve new bachelor degree programs for state colleges and force them to reduce their tuition for those programs — is another example of bad higher education policy on the fly. More than 10 years after embarking on this experiment, it is time for a thoughtful assessment of how four-year degrees at state colleges are working. But Negron, the powerful chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, would further politicize and diffuse higher education governance when what is needed is a common vision and more financial invest-ment. Negron added language to a Senate bill dealing with tuition increases that would prevent the Board of Education from approving more four-year degree programs at state colleges, formerly known as com-munity colleges. A dozen years after St. Petersburg College first won the right to offer a limited number of bachelor’s degrees, 24 colleges now have approval for 175 different degrees. Negron contends at least some of those programs have strayed from the Legislature’s original intent that colleges would offer four-year degrees to meet workforce needs in their communities, such as in nursing or technology.... Negron wants ... state colleges to charge the same tuition for both upper and lower-level work and strip $3.4 million from state colleges’ four-year degree bud-gets to give to the University of Florida and Florida State University. He says more investment is needed there to build elite universities that compete with those in other states. But the answer is not to take from the colleges to give to two universities with powerful sup-porters in the Legislature. Negron’s singular focus on state college’s offering s — without consideration of what needs they may be ful filling or how they have increased higher education acc ess — illustrates how Tallahassee micromanages educatio n. Florida should be less concerned about where studen ts are getting bachelor’s degrees and more concerned with making those degrees accessible. Even as Tampa Bay has the University of South Florida, for exampl e, St. Petersburg College has a niche that overwhelmin gly serves working students over 25 years old. Last yea r it awarded 1,200 bachelor’s degrees, mostly in fields like nursing, education or business. Negron, R-Stuart, is right that Florida needs to invest more in state universities. But he should push for bet-ter coordination throughout the higher education sys-tem to eliminate duplication. The universities’ Board of Governors should also have authority over state colleg-es, because the state’s public school system is plenty of work for the Board of Education. Negron even could lead the charge among his Republican colleagues to forgo special interest tax breaks so that Florida collects the state revenue needed to adequately fund education, including higher education. Robbing from Peter to pay Paul while further politicizing the process only makes things worse.Political meddling ill serves state colleges Q Tampa Bay Times A tribute to Bill Glover M y good friend, Bill Glover, relayed the news to me over the phone: “The cancer is back and I only have a few weeks to live, Roy.” However, the words didn’t sound like they were coming from a man who only had a short time to live. His words and tone seemed to echo the finality of a wonderful life, with no regrets and the confidence of where he would spend eternity. Bill Glover is a man known throughout Columbia County and the state. He spent 34 years of his life working as a law enforcement officer for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission before retiring in 2001 as area supervisor. Before that he served his country in the United States Army. Many of you that don’t know Bill personally may recognize the name from the many Letters to the Editor that he has written in area newspapers over the years since retiring. Bill’s articles readily define him as a Christian and social conservative and one that loves his country and fellow man, and the Lord. Bill has always demonstrated a strong work ethic, placed high value on integrity, and maintained a spirit of volunteerism in his community and church. He was raised hunting and fishing and loved the outdoors. That love of the outdoors drew him to a career in wildlife law enforce-ment. It was a perfect match. His outdoor knowledge, coupled with his enthusiasm, made him a force to be reckoned with, as poachers soon learned. His supervisors also recognized this and Bill was quickly promoted to the rank of sergeant and placed over a squad of officers to supervise. His squad worked an area of the state where poaching of deer at night was ram-pant. This meant working almost entirely at night, which proved challenging for a man with a young family. His hard work and sacrifice paid off and he and his squad dra-matically reduced the poaching of deer by making hundreds of arrests over the next several years. The deer herd thrived and Floridians now enjoy an abundance of deer and other wildlife because of the sacrifices of Bill and others like him who worked to protect our wildlife resources. I have been fortunate to work with and enjoy Bill’s friendship for these past 33 years. I have found many qualities in Bill that impressed me but one has stood out above the rest and that has been his role of advocate. We have all enjoyed an advocate in our lives from time to time. Mothers seem to be born advocates and come to our rescue when fathers are quick to administer discipline. At work, Bill was an advocate for his people when they found themselves in trouble. I have heard him argue his subor-dinates’ cause to superiors many a time and even when the subordinate was wrong, he attempted to mitigate the punishment. Bill’s leadership style was more like coaching than supervising and he was well respected by his subor-dinates. Bill continued in this role as advocate even after retirement, volunteering as a Guardian Ad Litem counselor. Bill loves sports and people, so coaching came natural to him and he coached everything from Little League to church softball. He was a frequent face at sporting events in Columbia and surrounding coun-ties, serving as an umpire and ref-eree for many years. Bill has a genuine concern for others and has made countless positive impressions, especially on young people. He is Uncle Bill to many. I can’t count the number of young people’s lives he has influenced. He taught teenagers in church for years and they loved him. He had an energy about him that was attractive to teenagers and he could hold his own with them physically in sporting events. In recent years, Bill served as leader over a boys’ organization in his church known as Royal Rangers. Over many years, hundreds of boys cycled through his classes. All were influenced by the qualities that Bill holds dear, integrity, love for God and country, and fellow man. Bill’s efforts will be realized in the lives of these young people for years to come. Bill has been blessed with a wonderful wife, Sandy, who has stuck by his side for 48 years. They have raised four sons Matt, Brian, Luke, and Phillip. They have nine grand-children. Bill has helped so many people financially over his life. I know of one family whose house payments he made for months until they could get on their feet financially. Only heaven knows how many electric and medi-cal bills, groceries, car repairs, bails, and gifts of cash Bill has provided to people in Columbia County. He has truly demonstrated what it means to be a Christian and an American. I believe when he enters the gates of heaven, our Lord will speak these words to him: “Well done, good and faithful servant.” I t was 40 years ago. The scan-dal was called Watergate. The president was Richard Nixon. He had delighted in some dirty political tricks, was abusing power left and right, and had even helped cover up a crime, a break-in by political operatives at headquarters of the Democratic National Committee. Then, wham, the press was on his case, his own party was on his case, Congress was on his case and the courts were on his case. Nixon resigned. “The system worked,” observers said over and over again, reflecting pride that constitutional safeguards had thwarted these machinations as all sides stood up for what’s right. Now we’re in another era. Barack Obama is president, and no, he is not engaged in Nixonian criminal-ity, but he is rewriting laws without congressional approval, otherwise kicking the Constitution in the teeth on a regular basis and merrily get-ting away with it.... The system is not working.Even one prominent liberal agrees. “What also alarms me, however, is that the two other branches appear not just simply passive, but inert in the face of this concentra-tion of authority,” said Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, when he was testifying before the House Judiciary Committee this past February. “The fact that I happen to think the president is right on many of these policies does not alter the fact that I believe the means ... is wrong, and that this can be a dan-gerous change in our system. And our system is changing in a very fundamental way. And it’s chang-ing without a whimper of regret or opposition.” Turley is not bashful in his facts – pointing, for instance, to administration surveillance of the press; the unilateral rewriting of parts of immi-gration, health-care, education and other laws; questionable regulatory enthusiasms; and the illegal shift-ing of money from one government fund to another. Neither is he bashful in his rhetoric as he worries about “a usurpation of authority unprecedented in this coun-try,” or refers to the “land of the sorta, kinda free” or says we are at a “consti-tutional tipping point” that could bring us “an uber presidency unchecked by the other two branches.” Listen folks, despite the yelps of the uncaring, intellectually mysti-fied branch of liberals, this is not about impeachment or a conserva-tive agenda or anything like that. It is about preserving a constitutional order meant to protect all of us. And do the Democrats not get it that if this precedent stands, a Republican president could also indulge his autocratic impulses someday?Checks and balances not working Roy Brown Q Roy Brown retired from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission as a regional commander after 31 years of service.

Campus USA is also an active supporter of charitable efforts and community events such as the Cattle Barons Ball, Diva Days, the Olustee Festival and the Fill the Baby Bottle campaign with the Pregnancy Center. Were just honored and excited to be selected to win, said Service Center Manager Diana Parker. I think the chamber saw our stability and that were committed to the community. We want to continue to be a strong supporter of the community. The Lake City Advertiser and Teeko Graphics Inc. were runners-up for the title.Large Business winnerLarge Business of the Year winner TD Bank operates four offices in Columbia County, providing career opportunities to over 40 employees. The institution has contributed over $20,000 to the local community through the TD Foundation, supporting organizations such as Catholic Charities, Habitat for Humanity, the Ichetucknee Partnership and the United Way. In addition, local TD Bank managers serve in various leadership positions at Florida Gateway College, United Way, Altrusa and Habitat for Humanity. We want to thank the Chamber of Commerce and the community, said Regional Vice President Suzanne Norris. We strive to uphold the highest level of service and commitment to the chamber and the community. The Lake City Reporter and PCS-White Springs were finalists for the title.Citizen of the YearFollowing the business awards, last years Citizen of the Year C. Dennis Roberts introduced Mantha Young, the chambers latest member to receive the honor. [Young] has dedicated her life to helping others, Roberts said. She selflessly gives up her time and is always willing to lend a hand and do a good deed... She is truly one of those people who leaves a little bit of sunshine wherever she goes. Young actively serves on many community organizations including Haven Hospice, the Meridian Healthcare Board of Associates, the Early Learning Coalition, the Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Committee, the Florida Gateway Coalition, the United Way Challengers Club and the LAD Soup Kitchen, among others. I do love Lake City and Columbia County and I do love people, Young said in a teary-eyed acceptance speech. Mamie Bass, the founder of Altrusa, said, Its not enough to be good you have to be good for something. I do strive to live by that. Young spends much of her time serving as manager of the Lake City Advertiser and president of the local Altrusa International chapter, where she and a committee of fellow dedicated Altrusans just wrapped up the communitys first concerted health and fitness initiative, Get Fit Lake City. I just enjoy what I do, I enjoy making a difference, Young said after the ceremony. The Bible says, Unto whom much has been given, much is required. I feel it is our duty to give back and pay it forward. She credited former Lake City Advertiser Manager Lynette Ricketson, mother-in-law Joann Young and her husband of 27 years Rick Young for much of the inspiration that drives her to be so active in her community. Looking ahead, Young hopes to begin a community effort to support Haven Hospice, which she said is facing $600,000 to $800,000 in cuts to their federal financial support in the near future. I would like to see our community rally around Haven Hospice, she said, adding that donations of just $5 to $15 can help them get through the next few years. Hours after the ceremony, Young said she could still hardly believe she was named Citizen of the Year and struggled to find the right words, humbled by the title. I feel it is our responsibility to try to invest in the lives of others, she said. We have been so blessed to be born and raised in the United States of America. We need to realize how precious that is and pass that along to other people who need a hand up.

Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, APRIL 3, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: “Maybe Only One in Georgia” (Jan. 7), who asked whether she should have a second child, needs to understand there are no guarantees. Her 5-year-old could end up hating her younger sibling, or adoring her. Parents create a child because they want to share their union with a new life. Each child is unique and represents a life commitment, not just 18 years of hard work. I am the youngest of four, the “surprise” baby boy when my parents were in their 40s. I loved them and they never made me feel unwanted. I adore my older sister. We were always close despite the eight-year age difference. My two brothers are very different than I am, and we don’t have much to do with one another. “Maybe” should not pro duce another child to be a playmate to the one they have. It should be done only if they’re financially, emotionally and spiritually willing and capable of rear ing another person. If not, they should enjoy the extra time, money and energy they’ll have, and perhaps give a needy dog or cat a home. — YOUNGEST CHILD IN SAVANNAH DEAR YOUNGEST CHILD: I told “Maybe” I couldn’t decide this for her, but would open up the question to my readers. And they sure had some comments! Here are a few: DEAR ABBY: My advice is DON’T! I have two sons, 27 and 31. They hardly know each other and have no interest in what the other is doing. It breaks my heart, as they are the only close blood relatives they have. I didn’t have the young er one so the older would have company. I wanted another baby. I was 29, but wouldn’t consider it at “Maybe’s” age (38). How long does she think she can run that fast? — MITZI IN DAYTON DEAR ABBY: Most only children I know are spoiled and used to getting their own way, largely because they haven’t had to share. My husband is from a large family and they are all close, even with a 20-year age span. We recently dealt with issues related to elderly parents, and trust me, I was so thankful to have the help of my siblings. I feel it is unfair to raise a child alone if you’re able to add to the family unit. — GRATEFUL MOM DEAR ABBY: I am a happy only child. I was raised by kind people. I have a positive self-image, was a self-reliant kid and am a confident, productive adult. As a parent, I had a lot to learn. My husband, one of four siblings, reassured me that the quarreling and jealousy among our three was normal. They learned to fight and stick up for themselves -something I had to master later. As a child, I wondered what it would be like to have a brother or sister, but my imaginary friends were good company. When my aging parents were ailing, it might have been nice to have a sibling to share that with, but my husband was ample support. “Onlies” can be very peaceful people. Most of us prefer to cooperate rath er than compete. As kids, we’re the center of the uni verse and responsible for everything. That sense of responsibility carries over into adulthood. -ANNE HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do whatever it takes to stabilize your position and enhance your reputation at work. Refrain from making impulsive moves or deci sions that can jeopardize your domestic scene or your relationship with someone special. An idea that is prof itable will grab your atten tion. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Discussions that are meant to help someone in need will make a difference to the outcome of a situation that has been ignored in the past. Attending a reunion or getting together with an old friend will be eye-opening. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Make changes if you feel it is necessary. Taking action and following through with a promise will help you avoid complaints. Don’t be led astray by someone with holding information. Find out firsthand what’s expect ed of you. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Make plans to do something unusual or get involved in something that allows you to learn about different beliefs, cultures or lifestyles. A challenge that entails physical strength can lead to injury. Proceed with caution. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do your best to bring about changes that will benefit friends, relatives or neigh bors. Attending community meetings or events will allow you to take a leader ship position. Express your thoughts and your inten tions. Love is in the stars. ++++VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A good idea coupled with a detailed presentation will help you attract interest in something you want to pursue. Double-check all the information you gather before you make a promise or commitment. Confusion can lead to a false impres sion. ++LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Sign up for an activity, event or something entertaining. You can improve your rela tionship with special people if you do things together. Having fun with the young sters in your life or planning a family outing or trip is favored. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Finding financial solu tions may not be as easy or straightforward as hoped. An investment that’s sug gested isn’t likely to be as lucrative as you’ve been told. Stick to proven means and methods when it comes to money, health and legal matters. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep your thoughts to yourself. Someone will misinterpret what you are trying to say. Focus on home, family and fixing up your digs to suit your needs. Add to your entertainment center, but be careful not to overspend in the process. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Say little, espe cially if you are dealing with a friend, neighbor or relative. You are best to give others the benefit of the doubt and go about your business. Don’t let someone’s uncertainty confuse you. Do what you know works best for you. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Make positive changes regarding how you earn your money, and you will raise your standard of living. Put love and romance at the top of your list, and you will improve your personal life and future. A long-term investment will pay off. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Resurrect an old plan and revise it to fit your current situation. Use your skills in a unique way in order to raise your income. Discuss your plans and you will get the help you need to move forward. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Readers weigh in on pros and cons of only childhood Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

Wilbekin has become one of the best closers in college basketball, deliver ing clutch shots and defen sive stops in crunch time for the top-seeded Gators (36-2). Hes been called the best all-around point guard in the country, and its hard to argue consider ing how hes played in the NCAA tournament. The 6-foot-2 senior is averaging a team-high 16.8 points in four tourna ment games. He also has 12 assists, eight rebounds, six steals and just two turn overs. Throw in his defense he frustrated Albanys Peter Hooley, Pittsburghs James Robinson and Daytons Jordan Sibert and its clear that coach Billy Donovans decision to give Wilbekin one final chance has been a huge key to Floridas suc cess. Its been one of the great experiences for me as a coach going through what he and I have gone through together, Donovan said. Wilbekin could have his hands full in the Final Four on Saturday night. Not only will he be tasked with directing Floridas offense, but he also will be the primary defender on AllAmerican guard Shabazz Napier of Connecticut. Napier scored 26 points in the teams first meet ing this season, and six of those came in the final minute with Wilbekin in the locker room with a sprained ankle. The Gators sorely missed him down the stretch in the one-point loss. It was a glimpse of where Florida would be without the Gainesville native. Donovan suspended Wilbekin indefinitely last June for a violation of team rules. It was Wilbekins sec ond suspension in seven months, and Donovan even suggested that Wilbekin transfer to get a fresh start elsewhere. an unknown opponent for the Lady Tigers. I dont know much about them, Williams said. Their pitcher won 31 games last year. Its just some of the best competition. For Williams, theres no guarantee of winning, but he said the Lady Tigers will approach it like they did the playoffs last season. He hopes it ends the same way. When I was talking about somebody last week I told them we just have to do it like we did the state tournament last year, Williams said. We need to win the game were in. We just need to win the game were in and move onto the next game. Its the same approach we took in the regionals. We dont know a lot about you, but well try to win the game.
