By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comEmbattled Third Circuit Judge Andrew J. Decker III has dropped his bid for re-election. Decker filed paperwork to withdraw from the race Jan. 26, leaving challenger Melissa Olin unopposed. Most of Deckers first term was marred by controversy. The Florida Supreme Court admonished Decker in May for his conduct while running for Third Circuit Judge in 2012 and as an attorney. During an official reprimand in Tallahassee, Chief Justice Jorge Labarga looked Decker in the eyes and criticized his pattern of poor judgement and baffling inability to understand conflicts of interest.Unlock $1M in enviro credits CALL US: (386) 752-1293 SUBSCRIBE TO THE REPORTER: Voice: 755-5445 Fax: 752-9400 Vol. 143, No. 242 TODAYS WEATHER Obituaries . . . . . . . 4A Sports . . . . . 5A Advice & Comics . . 8A Classified . . . . . . . 9A 74 50Chance of rain, 2A Lake City ReporterTUESDAY MARCH 6, 2018 | YOU R COMMU NITY NE WSPAPE R SINCE 1 874 | $1.00 LAKE CITY RE PORTER.COM Hill feels slighted by fellow council members, Page 3A + PLUS >> Black History Month at Fort White Elem.LOCAL Belmont student pages for PorterLOCALSee Page 4A See Page 2A JUKEBOX OLDIESCatch them at the Spirit, 2A What do you think?Let us know in a Letter to the Editor. JUDGE continued on 3A3rd Circuit Judge cancels re-election bid COUNTY TO STATE: Decker Decker surrounded by controversy in 1st term.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comA mineral rights dispute has gone from being a possible problem for Columbia County to a pressing concern that could stall major development projects, prompting the county to consider legal action against Bayfield Mitigation, the land bank at the center of the controversy. The Board of County Commissioners has approved hiring attorney Eric Olsin of Hopping Green & Sams, who will push the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to recognize more than $935,000 worth of mitigation credits the county bought from Bayfield. DEP froze the credits last year after PCS Phosphate White Springs claimed mineral rights over Bayfield land. If regulators dont unfreeze the credits, Olsin is prepared to assist the county in litigation against Bayfield, County CREDITS continued on 3A Woman ejected, killed in crashBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City woman was killed and another sustained serious injuries in a single-vehicle crash just after midnight on Sunday in Suwannee County, a Florida Highway Patrol report said.

Fort White Elementary students celebrated Black History Month in many different ways. In Lisa Kings second-grade class, the African-American focus for February was on historical heroes. Students were studying heroes and biographies during this month and chose an AfricanAmerican hero to research and write about the historical significance of each person for our ELA and Social Studies standards. Afterwards, the students used recycled materials to create their character in the form of a biography bottle for our Science standards. The culminating lesson ended with a presentation of their projects to fellow classmates and Stephanie Wilsons class along with other staff members who found the students very knowledgeable and the presentations informative to the historical significance of each hero.

From left: Todd Martin, A bbie Chast een, Dennille Decker Mike McKee, Blake Kuykendall, Rep. Porter, Mike Williams, Brad Wheeler, Brandon Biel, Jordan Wade and Jordan Perez. When he was an attorney, Decker, who could not be reached for comment for this story, failed to inform clients of conflicts of interest and engaged in other dishonest conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice, according to the high court. As a judicial candidate, Decker falsely stated on a televised political forum at Florida Gateway College that he had never been accused of conflicts of interest, four months after a former client formally accused him of such. In a letter signed prior to the televised forum, Decker acknowledged the conflict of interest complaint. As an attorney, Decker represented Third Circuit Judge Paul Bryan and Bryans two business partners in a land foreclosure case, but failed to inform other clients of his attor ney/client relationship with Bryan, whom their cases were set to go before. He mishandled his representation of the three men in multiple ways, according to the Florida Supreme Court, such as failing to withdraw representation after the business partners became hostile toward one another. The state Judicial Qualifications Commission originally recommended a 90-day suspension after it found Decker guilty of the violations in March 2015. In November 2015, however, the high court ordered Decker to show why that recommendation shouldnt be thrown out in favor of harsher sanctions. After being silent for more than a year, the Florida Supreme Court ruled on Deckers punishment in March 2017, issuing a six-month suspension that took effect March 6 of that year. The filing deadline for other candidates to enter the race is May 4. Olin formally declared her candidacy on August 31, the same day as Decker. as the only woman not wearing a seatbelt and was pronounced dead at the scene, the report stated. All other occupants reportedly received serious injuries and were airlifted to UF Health Shands including Mildred Curry, 23, of Lake City, and Kametria Lowe, 21, of Lake Butler. CRASHContinued From 1A Hill says hes slighted by council members JUDGEContinued From 1A By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLake City Council member Jake Hill is not pleased with the way he says hes been treated by fellow council members. During the comments portion of Monday nights council meeting, Hill expressed his displeasure with the council. Hill, who is serving in a second, non-consecutuve term as a council member after losing in his 2012 re-election bid, said his suggestions arent considered, unlike other council members suggestions. Why is it when I make a suggestion, its wrong, or it cant be done, he said. But, anybody else who sits up here ... it can be done. He said Zack Paulk, who defeated Hill for his seat in 2012, was invited to attend the budget work session for the upcoming year, even though he had not been sworn in as a councilman. However, Hill said when he defeated Paulk in the 2016 election, he was not allowed to participate in the process to select a new city attorney, even though he had won the election. I wasnt invited to come up here when the city attorney was hired whats the difference, Hill asked. Mayor Stephen Witt said the budget process is a public process through a series of workshops, while the selection process in determining the city attorney consisted of private interviews. During the last council meeting in February, Hill suggested that council candidates be allowed to give input to help the city manager search process. However, the suggestion did not win approval from the other city council members. My point is when I make a suggestion, there is problem, Hill said. As Hill continued to explain what he saw as discrepancies in the councils decisions, he pointed out that the council voted to waive $6,000 in impact fees for the Halpatter Brewery project funding, but did not authorize spending any funds to address drainage issue near the L-Pop 2 Daycare facility. Its not in my district, but the problem it has its pennies to fix, he said. You cant fix it, but you can give $1 million away to this building across the street [Blanche Hotel] but you cant fix this little problem here. Thats wrong. Im talking to everybody in here... It is wrong. In other business, the council, meeting as the Community Redevelopment Agency, voted to waive a $6,000 impact fee to the Halpatter Brewery after a recommendation from the Community Redevelopment Advisory Committee. CREDITSContinued From 1AAttorney Joel Foreman told commissioners Thursday night. The county hasnt needed any of the credits since they were frozen. Even though everybody with common sense knows theres a problem there, theres nothing there thats really actionable, Foreman said Thursday night. But that may no longer be the case. The county currently needs the credits to renew its permit for stormwater drainage improvements in Cannon Creek, County Manager Ben Scott told the Lake City Reporter Monday. Thats part of the issue, Scott said. Any development project that affects a wetland requires either the use of mitigation credits, which are based on the ecological value of conservation land continually maintained by a mitigation bank to offset the impact of development, or more expensive on-site mitigation. The county purchased 27.7 mitigation credits from Bayfield in 2011. The credits stay with Bayfield until the county is ready to use them. PCS filed suit against Bayfield in May 2017, claiming mineral rights for the land the credits are based on. As a result, FDEP and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers regulatory division froze all of Bayfields credits early last year, after discovering the mitigation bank lacked the necessary property rights to maintain the easement, according to a March 2, 2017 letter from FDEP and a March 6, 2017 letter from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. PCS owns mineral rights to a substantial portion of Bayfields 2,000-acre property, according to a March 6 letter from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. HillWhy is it when I make a suggestion, its wrong, or it cant be done, Hill said. But, anybody else who sits up here ... it can be done.

Deadline is March 14.COURTESY Legislative pageHaving the opportunity to assist Sta te Representative Elizabeth Porter in-person during the 60-day legislative session was perfect for S eth Grubb, a Belmont Academ y seventh-grader. Grubb was accepted by the House of Representatives to work for one week as a page for Rep. Porter at the Capitol in Tallahassee from Feb. 12 to 16 as part of the Page & Messenger Program. The program allows each of the 120 representatives to sponsor one page and one messenger to assist them and their staff and to observe state government in action. Students may also participate in a mock session, committee meetings, House sessions in the chamber and possible press conferences with notable people. For Grubb, paging for Rep. Porter was a valuable learning experience. I got to meet with different representatives and hear what they thought about being a representative, he said. Grubb also said that paging gave him the opportunity to meet other students who have similar interests as him and to see firsthand the process of how a bill becomes a law. Experiencing the work of a representative up close was important to Grubb. My favorite part about being a page was actually paging, Grubb said, because I was able to see how the legislators do their jobs.

Contact Eric Jackson or Jordan Kroeger754-0420 firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com PREP SPORTSSpeed Demons COURTESYFort Whites Manny Comesana runs around the track during the Jimmy Everette Invitational last weekend at Lincoln. Comesana took fourth place in his first outing. FORT WHITE The Indians continued their impressive start to the season after strong finishes at the Jimmy Everette Invitational this past weekend in Tallahassee. Both the Fort White boys and girls track and field teams fared well during the event. The Lady Indians 4x400 relay team (Kalyn Waugh, Emma Clary, Katrina Patillo, Cheyenne Hodges) was as good as expected, taking first place in their heat. The girls 4x800 relay team also stole the show finishing first in their heat, respectively. The boys team shined, too, especially as individuals. The Indians were led by Matt Dimauro, who placed second overall in shot put with a 42-foot throw. Manny Comesana also had a strong outing, finishing sixth overall in the 400-meter run. Comesana has emerged on the scene quickly. The newcomer ran a personal-best time of 54.29 to finish top-8 in his first true track and field competition. Fort White is happy to have the junior standout, who joined the team late earlier this year. He came out for a couple days, had everything turned in, and showed us that he can run, Fort White girls coach Kem Jackson said of Comesanas unofficial try-out. We just kinda challenged him a little bit while our kids were practicing. And when he was at practice, he ran a good speed in the 400s. So we kinda recruited him to MARCH MADNESS By MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Florida coach Mike White has a forbidden phrase for his staff, a rule implemented just a few weeks ago. No one is allowed to say PK80 in front of the team. Florida played well in the late-November tournament in Portland, Oregon, the Phil Knight Invitational, a 16-team tourney that celebrated the Nike co-founders 80th birthday. The Gators vaulted to No. 5 in the AP poll. After losing six of eight in conference play, White decided he didnt want to hear about the tournament any more. Its banned in scouting breakdowns, video sessions and practices. All the noise that our guys hear is, Well, you guys were so good then, White said, referring to the late-November tournament in Portland, Oregon, that helped vault the Gators to No. 5 in The Associated Press college basketball poll. We were horrific defensively. We were playing really, really fast and we were getting open looks, and thats before people started grinding that thing out against us. We looked a little bit different. All the reminders that our guys get, all the exterior noise about, PK80 this, PK80 that, I didnt think it was healthy for our guys to continue to hear that. Lets just focus on today. Lets focus on getting better. Whites new directive coincided with the start of a significant turnaround for the 23rd-ranked Gators (20-11, 11-7 Southeastern Conference), who are back in the poll after winning three in a row. Florida is playing its best basketball of the season heading into the SEC Tournament in St. Louis.

By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressBill Haas returns to golf this week knowing the Valspar Championship will be unlike any of the previous 347 times he has played on the PGA Tour. The deep bruise on his left leg and the soreness in his right ankle have subsided. Still tender are memories of a friend, Mark Gibello, who was killed Feb. 13 on a winding road outside Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles when his Ferrari clipped another car and slammed into a pole. Haas was the passenger. Theres not many templates to go by on something like this, Haas said in his first interview since the accident. I was in a state of shock, disbelief. It was a tragic event, traumatic. Im still unsure how to handle it. I keep going back to focusing on the Gibello family. He described the Gibellos as mutual friends he planned to stay with during the Genesis Open. Haas and Gibello played golf the previous weekend at Los Angeles Country Club, where Gibello Shaken, grieving Haas back at golf after friends death Indians track and field team looks to build on hot start.Gators pegged 3 seed in tourneyPOSTSEASON continued on 7A HAAS continued on 10AHarvick takes a bumpy road to 100 victoriesBy JENNA FRYERAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Kevin Harvick once lay in wait for Greg Biffle on the pit road wall at Bristol Motor Speedway. Harvick was angry he always seemed to be angry in the early days of his NASCAR career and he was going to make sure Biffle knew it the moment the race was over. How did Harvick send his message? He literally hurdled over Biffles car into a scrum and lunged at Biffles throat. The Biffle incident back in 2002 would most certainly be on Harvicks highlight reel. In his first two years in Cup, Harvick became the first driver to be parked by NASCAR for aggressive driving and he once tried to fight Ricky Rudd, usually considered a losing proposition. Harvicks nickname has always been Happy and he was anything but in those early days.

Whiteside had his highest-scoring game since Jan. 29, making 10 of his 13 shots. He averaged only 12.2 points on 48-percent shooting in his most recent 12 games. Kelly Olynyk scored 15 points for the Heat, who gave four of their starters Whiteside included the entire fourth quarter off and beat the Suns for the 18th time in their last 20 meetings. Dwyane Wade, Josh Richardson, Justise Winslow and Luke Babbitt each had 12 for the Heat, which had seven players in double figures. Devin Booker scored 31 points for Phoenix, which got 19 from TJ Warren and 12 from Marquese Chriss. The Suns shot 48 percent, but allowed Miami to shoot 51 percent and got out-rebounded 51-39. Miami is now five games clear of No. 9 Detroit in the East playoff race, both with 18 games remaining. The Heat (3430) are tied with Milwaukee, but moved to seventh because they win the season-series tiebreaker with the Bucks. The rest of the week is crucial for Miami in an East race where the gap between No. 3 Cleveland and No. 8 Milwaukee is only 3 games. The Heat visit No. 5 Washington (36-28) on Tuesday, host No. 6 Philadelphia (34-28) on Thursday and entertain the Wizards again on Saturday. FINISHING STRONG The Suns were great at the ends of all four quarters. Harrison scored with no time left in the first, Warren scored with 1.2 seconds left in the half, Marquese Chriss scored with 2.4 seconds left in the third and after he missed the free throw off an and-one opportunity, Warren tipped in the miss with 1.9 ticks on the clock. And the final basket was a tip-in by former Miami Hurricane Davon Reed, just before the closing buzzer. UP NEXT Suns: Visit Oklahoma City on Thursday. Heat: Visit Washington on Tuesday. Noles take down Jayhawks TALLAHASSEE No. 5 Florida State (12-0) used a five-run fifth inning to rally from a five-run deficit and beat Kansas (8-3) 10-5 Monday night at Dick Howser Stadium.

Smith is facing misdemeanor charges of willful infliction of corporal injury, assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism, according to Sgt. Michael Andraychak. Smith has been on the suspended list since November 2015 for violating the NFLs policy on substance abuse. The Raiders had signed Smith to a two-year contract before the 2016 season, but he never was cleared by the league to return from suspension. Smith was one of the leagues top pass rushers before off-field problems derailed his career. He set an NFL record with 33 sacks his first two seasons after being drafted in the first round by the San Francisco 49ers in 2011. He helped the Niners make it to the NFC title game as a rookie and the Super Bowl the following year. But the off-field issues started mounting the following season when he missed five games to undergo treatment at an inpatient facility following a DUI arrest. Smith was then suspended the first nine games in 2014 while serving an NFL suspension for violations of the leagues substance abuse and personal conduct policies. San Francisco then released him in August 2015 after another drunken driving charge his fifth arrest in three years. He signed with Oakland just before the start of the 2015 season and had 3 sacks in nine games before being suspended again for at least one year. Smith applied for reinstatement to the NFL in 2016, but that decision was initially deferred until the offseason and he never was granted reinstatement. Smith has played 59 games over five seasons in the NFL with 47 sacks and one first-team All-Pro honor in 2012. RELEASE Continued From 1B Smith A6
T UESDAY, MARCH 6, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 7A Monday. Weve got a good thing going. Just in time for postseason play, too. Great timing, Hudson added. Couldnt have been better. The Gators thought they had it all figured out in Portland. They scored 108 and 111 on consecutive nights in wins against Stanford and Gonzaga, respectively, and then had a 17-point lead against then-No. 1 Duke in the second of two title games during the PK80 tournament. Florida blew that big lead to the Blue Devils, but still rose in the rankings. White cautioned anyone who would listen that his team wasnt playing the kind of defense needed to sustain success and overcome a poor shooting performance. It came to light the next week when the Gators lost consecutive home games to Florida State and Loyola Chicago. That started an up-and-down trend for a team that featured several newcomers, led by Hudson and fellow guard Egor Koulechov. Florida reached a low point last month when it dropped six of eight in league play. One positive was noticeable during the slump: The Gators were considerably better on the defensive end. They finished with second-best defensive efficiency rating in SEC play. That combined with an offensive resurgence Florida has made 30 3-pointers in the last three games has the team peaking at the right time. We finally found our roles and embraced them, senior point guard Chris Chiozza said. Were just doing a good job of playing harder than we were and playing defense the whole game. If we cant score, were not going to let the other team score either. That wasnt the case during the PK80. Now, Hudson, KeVaughn Allen and Keith Stone are playing the best defense of their careers. And between Chiozza, Hudson, Koulechov and Allen, Florida has four guys capable of getting hot on any given day. Equally important, Stone and Kavarrius Hayes are holding their own in the post despite being outsized and playing out of position. You try to find your best identity, the best version of each one of these guys and then the best version of us together, White said. These guys came a long way and learned how to play together. ... I wish it didnt take this long, but Im really pleased with how were playing right now. rrfntrf bbrnn f rff fnbrfnf fnr fnfn ntbf fntnfff nbn n brfn f fff btnfff ff n frnf tnnfff fnf rr frff nf rbff nrnb ff rrnf rrnff t ff rbrn nn rfn nnfn f r brnf nff rfnf fnff rfbr ntffn f r rrnt fn rr fn t ffnn nrrnr fff n rr n frrn fnf tff nrrt fnf rr rrt fff n fn tbr fn brrbftn ntr rrfntfbbbfbn bbn nffrfnff fb rftnff f n tbf bn nn nfn fnf f ffn f rf f nffnt ff ffr rffnf tnnnfn ffnff n rff tfrf brnnf rbr nnf ftnfn f rff n rf rft b rffff f r ft nf nft ft nf n rr ntf fbr rfft nbr nfn rnf rbfn t nn ff fnff nfnf nnf f rn nffft nn nn rfrr fn f rrn f brn rrn fr ffnft nnn ff f ntbbnfff frtftb r rfftbrrb bntbrr ntbrrb rrr fnfftbrrb brrfftbrr bnttbrr brfntbrr r fnfftbrrb rfbrrfftbrr nbntbrr brntbrr rb nftbbrrb nftbbrr ftbrrb tbrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrbr b POSTSEASONContinued From 1BCOURTESYUF coach Mike White fist pumps.

8A LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS TU eE SD ayAY M arcA RC H 6, 2018 DEAR ABBY: I have been married two years, but my husband and I have been together for more than 10. We have a 3-yearold daughter who has needed a few extra doctor appointments and therapy. My husband makes it to none of these extra appoint ments, some of which are cr ucial to her future. We both work full-time, but he works six days a week. I have started to regard him differently because Im doing everything for our daughter. Sometimes I feel like a single parent. I dont want my marriage to fail, but we arent connecting anymore. I take off work or switch my hours around because I know thats what you do for your child. What do you think I should do? WISCONSIN MOMMY DEAR MOMMY: Talk to your husband. You wont be able to achieve a more equal balance until you make your feelings known and discuss this with him. Im sorry you didnt mention what kind of job your husband has, because its an important omission. He may be doing everything he can for you and his daughter A six-daya-week schedule doesnt offer much flexibility. DEAR ABBY: My adult child recently passed away. Although he didnt live with me, I handled the arrangements and held the visitation in my home. It has been only a few months, but I feel the need to get ever ything settled. But every time I sit down to write thank-you cards, I become so anxious I find it hard to breathe. Some family members have told me thank-you cards are not expected for bereavement. Can you tell me what the proper etiquette and time frame is in this matter? HAS TO SETTLE EVERYTHING DEAR HAS: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your son. There are two ways to handle the task of thanking those who sent flowers, food or condolence letters. The first is to ask a friend or another family member to help you. The other is as simple as having cards printed that say, The family of ____________ want to thank you for reaching out to us at this sad time, and signing your name. I hope this is helpful for you. DEAR ABBY: I have a close friend with whom I often travel and attend events. Shes a lovely person, but she has the odd habit of singing in public in gift shops, r estaurants, or any public place wher e music is playing (and sometimes even when its not). I cant have the radio on in the car without her singing along. She has an OK voice, but her style is a bit operatic. How can I gently tell her that her spontaneous performances are inappropriate and excessive? NOT KARAOKE IN THE EAST DEAR NOT KARAOKE: I suspect your friend craves attention, which is why she does it. Pay her the compliment shes looking for by telling her how nice her voice is, but you would pr efer she not sing when youre out in public together because you find it embarrassing.

Negotiate on your own behalf and dont be afraid to ask for what you are worth. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Be careful who you share your emotions with. Someone is likely to leak information if you are too trusting, putting you in a vulnerable position. If you want to make a personal change, stop talking and start making it happen. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Charm and diplomacy will help you get your way. Less talk and more action will make a difference to the outcome of any situation that requires you to work with others. Love, romance and partnerships are favored. Actress-writer Joanna Miles is 78. Actor Ben Murphy is 76. Singer Mary Wilson of The Supremes is 74. Drummer Hugh Grundy of The Zombies is 73.

10A T UESDAY, MARCH 6, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER was a member and played a role in the club hosting the Walker Cup last year. Gibello was a close friend of Bill Harmon, the swing coach who works with Haas. It didnt take me long to realize how much his family loved him, how nice he was to me and my family, Haas said. His wife, Julie, has kept in touch with Gibellos wife. The funeral service in Santa Monica, California, was Friday, the same day the final field was set for the Valspar Championship in Florida. Tiger Woods is playing for the first time. So is Rory McIlroy. That figures to deflect plenty of attention from Haas trying to get back to work. The 35-year-old Haas returns with a greater appreciation of life and a level of support he never realized he had. His golf bag remained in the Riviera locker room for the rest of the Genesis Open until it was shipped home to him in South Carolina. Haas hasnt practiced much. He played golf Sunday in Greenville and planned to leave Monday night for the Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor, Florida. The amount of love and support and outreach I got from my peers and friends has been amazing, he said. At the same time, a friend of mine is not here anymore. ... Theres just no real way to explain life, why it happens and how it happens. You cant take tomorrow for granted. You have to enjoy today and prepare for tomorrow. All that said, I still feel like I have to go compete. I cant just say golf doesnt matter. Thats what I do. I think thats what Mark would want. He was a golf fan. He loved golf. He would want me to care about how I play. Haas has not responded to all of the phone calls and text messages because of the sheer volume, but he looks forward to being back out again among his golfing family. Webb Simpson, a fellow Wake Forest alum, is among those who reached out to him. I remember waking up the morning after it happened. My wife got a text from Julie, and we were pretty emotional that morning, Simpson said. He hated it more than anything for that family. He needs to get over it mentally now probably more than physically, but I think it will be good for him to get out on tour. Simpson lost his father late last year and remembers how much it helped to get back inside the ropes. Time doesnt necessarily heal, but with time it gets easier, Simpson said. Haas is a six-time winner on the PGA Tour, though he has gone three years since his last victory. Hes best known for saving par from the shallow water at East Lake during a playoff he won at the Tour Championship to claim the FedEx Cup, and making the clinching putt in the Presidents Cup with his father, Jay, as the U.S. captain. Along with leaning on his wife and his family, he has spent time with a therapist to cope with the wide range of emotions and the lingering questions. I dont know that I wont have recurring images and thoughts and feelings about that night, he said. Why was he taken and I wasnt? I ask, Why? all the time. From the people who have reached out to me and the advice Ive been given, you cant ask, Why? in life. Life happens in ways you cant explain. Theres no point in asking. It wont solve anything, and it only brings more questions. He doesnt know what to expect at Innisbrook, only that he wants to focus on golf as much as he can. Haas will need a good week at Innisbrook to get into the Dell Match Play in two weeks. Otherwise, hell take a few more weeks off. Once I get inside the ropes, I think there will be a sense of relief, he said. Its what I know best, to be competitive. Every time we tee it up, we want to do well. Thats important to me. Hopefully, I can do that. I think Ill be able to do that. What makes him most anxious about his return is the reception he might get from friends and from fans. This needs to not be about me, he said. This has got to be about golf and the Gibello family.COURTESYGolfer Bill Haas says hes returning to work with a greater appreciation of life and a level of support he never realized he had. HAASContinued From 1B COURTESYFort Whites Cheyenne Hodges runs in stride during the Jimmy Everette Invitational in Tallahassee. Martinsville and generally being a thorn in NASCARs side that it was the wakeup call the 25-year-old needed. I havent been racing since I was 5 years old and made it this far in my career to throw it all away now, Harvick said then. Having to miss the race in Martinsville definitely got my attention. OK, so it hasnt been exactly smooth sailing since that wakeup call. But here Harvick is now, 100 NASCAR national wins later, and one of the most consistent drivers of his era. Harvick doesnt have the statistics to show just how exceptional a race car driver he is in part because he came along at the same time as another Californian. Jimmie Johnson, with a laidback Southern California persona, debuted a year after Harvick and has collected seven championships along the way. Harvick has so far managed just one championship. But hes a Daytona 500 winner, a two-time Coca-Cola 600 winner, a Southern 500 winner and a Brickyard 400 winner. Thats a Hall of Fame career right there, and one many might not have seen coming when he was thrust into a miserable situation at what should have been the best time of his life. Harvick was on schedule to drive a Cup car for Richard Childress in 2002, but when Dale Earnhardt was killed on the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500, that plan was scrapped. Harvick got Earnhardts ride the next week, went forward with his scheduled Las Vegas wedding the week after that, and won his first Cup race the week after that. It was a whirlwind three weeks for the 24-year-old from Bakersfield, California, and when he had to time to take a breath, there was a lot going on. Maybe thats why he snapped so easily back then. And although some of that went away, he never really changed who he was. Harvick continued to stir the pot in the garage, spoke his mind even when he didnt have anything nice to say, and never lacked for confidence. It was just over three years ago when Harvick, locked into the championship battle, shoved Brad Keselowski from behind to trigger a melee between Keselowski and Jeff Gordon. Harvick just stood back and watched the chaos between two drivers he was racing for the title. The next race was at Phoenix, where Harvick had to win, at a track here he always wins, and Harvick didnt want to answer any questions. He didnt want to talk about what role he might have had in the Keselowski scuffle, or how his championship was one race away from slipping through his fingers. But as he thought more about it, Harvick, by then a father to a young son, saw the bigger picture. To be a role model to Keelan, he had to be a professional and do the right thing. So he met his media obligations in Phoenix, won the race, and won the championship a week later. Harvick and his wife welcomed a daughter this offseason and hes now a 42-year-old father of two. His future is in broadcasting and Fox already uses him quite a bit in its booth. But hes still got racing left; hes certainly shown that out of the gate this season with two dominant wins. An eight-time Phoenix winner, including a streak of six wins in eight races, Harvick hasnt been to victory lane at the track in three whole races. He might snap that streak Sunday, and if he doesnt, he might have something sarcastic to say about a competitor, his own crew, maybe even NASCAR. Thats just who Harvick is, 17 years after his whirlwind and emotional and untenable promotion to the big leagues. He made it work, doing it his way, and thats likely how hell close his career. HARVICKContinued From 1B run because hes [actually] a soccer player. But Manny is probably going to start improving every time. Hes starting to come to practice now, so hopefully hell get his time down even more. Fort White boys also found some success in relays too. The Indians 4x800 relay team (Alton Mathews, Chase Daughtry, London Potter, Joel Quinones) finished fifth in their heat. The 4x400 relay team also well, taking fourth in their heat Saturday. Fort White already has shown improvement, cutting down times from the teams season opener at the Eastside Invitational a couple weeks ago. The Indians hope to keep improving before districts and regionals. Fort White has several within the program who could be vying for some hardware. Like Hodges, a standout on the girls team, who finished 10th in the 200-meter dash finals this past weekend. Were hoping that [Cheyenne] places at districts then go onto regionals, said Jackson. If she has a good time, then hopefully shell get out and make it to state. So we have high expectations for Cheyenne. Shes doing well. Shes one of the ones who are stepping up to the plate and working very hard. Fort White aims to keep building on the early momentum. The Indians are hopeful they can have a strong, polished group by seasons end if each member keeps making strides. Theres no signs of slowing down either, especially if newbies like Dimauro and Comesana keep cutting down time and improving in their respective events. They really seem to be improving. Their times are getting better, coming down. Fort White will be competing again in a couple weeks at the Bob Hayes Invitational.COURTESYFort Whites Deondre Cray in action last week at Lincoln. INDIANSContinued From 1BAssociated PressUNCASVILLE, Conn. Kitija Laksa scored 20 points and Laura Ferreira added 17 to lead No. 19 South Florida to a 74-59 win over rival UCF in the semifinals of the American Athletic Conference Tournament.
