LCCC president:
Low enrollment
forces decision.
By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.corn
The end of this semes-
ter at Lake City Community
College will bring about the
end of a long-running pro-
gram for which the college
was once noted.
LCCC plans to end its for-
est ranger, programs at the


end of the year, a decision
the college's board made
during the fall. The commu-
nity college opened in 1947
as Columbia Forest Ranger
School.
"This is a decision that
has been in process for
about three years," said
LCCC President Chuck
Hall.
Hall said officials chose
to end the program not
because of cost-cutting
measures, but because of
low enrollment. Hall said


S ., Iin years
... * ; past, the
program
handful remin . wo u y d
a.n s start with
k 15 stu-
. , Idents, and
Hall by the
end of the
program's
run there would only be a
handful remaining. To try.
and save it, college offi-
cials changed the program
from a two-year associate's
degree to a one-year certifi-


cate, but enrollment num-
bers remained stagnant.
"We set levels, worked
with our advisory council,
and we tried to get in as
many people as possible,"
Hall said. "We started with
about 15 people this last
time - we wanted 20 -
and five of them dropped
within the first month."
A low enrollment is
directly affected by the
number of jobs available in
the industry, Hall said.
"Our advisory commit-


tees, who are in the field,
have said there are no jobs,"
he said. "We were told Plum
Creek, the largest individu-
al land owning company in
the U.S., hired just 9 people
nationally last year. We're
concerned about graduat-
ing students who can't find
jobs, and decided that after
three years, we just got to
a point where we had to
make a decision.
"It's reallyhard," Hall said.

NBC: Conan O'Brien reaches $45M exit


NEW YORK
onan O'Brien told NBC
good riddance Thursday
in a $45 million deal
for his exit from "The
Tonight Show," allowing
Jay Leno to return to the late-night
program he hosted for 17 years.
Under the deal, which came seven
months after O'Brien took the reins
from Leno, O'Brien will get more
than $33 million, NBC said. The rest
will go to his 200-strong staff in sev-
erance.
Compensation for O'Brien's staff
.and crew was the final hurdle in
negotiations. O'Brien was said to
have been "dug in" on the issue out
of concern for the workers, while
-NBC said this week that it had
already agreed to pay "millions of
dollars to compensate every one of
them" and deemed it a public rela-
tions "ploy."
On Wednesday night's show,
speaking of a push to get a sever-
ance deal for his staff from NBC,
O'Brien joked, "At first they thought
I was gullible. They said the staff
would be taken to a big farm, where
they'd be allowed to run free for-
ever."

Rihanna to perform
'Stranded' in telethon
OSLO - R&B superstar Rihanna
says she will perform a new song
called "Stranded" with rapper Jay-
Z and U2's The Edge and Bono at
Friday's "Hope for Haiti" telethon in
London.
Rihanna says she feels drawn to
the cause because of Haiti's proxim-
ity to her home country of Barbados.
She said Thursday during the tap-
ing of a Norwegian talk show that
the Caribbean is like a family and
the humanitarian disaster that struck
Haiti following a Jan.
12 earthquake feels
"like it happened to
Barbados."
The funds raised
- ., from the "Hope for
Haiti" benefit will be
donated to several
Rihanna relief organizations,


including UNICEF, Oxfam America
and Partners in Health.

'Mamma Mia!' producer
plans Spice Girls musical
NEW YORK - If it worked for
ABBA, why'not the Spice Girls?
Producer Judy Craymer says her
company will create and produce
a new stage musical based on the
songs of the girl-power group whose
recordings have sold more than
75 million copies. The show is ten-
tatively titled, "Viva Forever." No
production timetable was announced
Thursday.
Craymer will produce "Viva
Forever" with "American Idol"
creator Simon Fuller, who has man-
aged Kelly Clarkson, Annie Lennox,
Carrie Underwood and the Spice
Girls.
Craymer produced both the stage
and screen versions of "Mamma
Mia!" The musical featuring ABBA
songs has been a mega-success,

County OKs Alligator Lake festival STORM: Temporarily closed roads


By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter.com
The Board of County
Commissioners approved
Alligator Lake to be the
home of a new spring festi-
val in Lake City at its meet-
ing Thursday.
The festival will be provid-
ed by Four Rivers Audubon
and Gateway Wildlife
Habitat Organization and
will be held on April 24.


The event will be a one-
(lay family and educational
event to serve the commu-
nities in Columbia County
and will offer activities
such as nature walks, bird
watching and educational
displays.
Jacqui Sulek, president
of Four Rivers Audubon,
said the festival is meant
to highlight the lake as a
natural resource.
"We would like to under-


score the importance of the
lake as a water resource,"
Sulek said. "It is one of
the most special wildlife
resources in Columbia
County, and has over 100
species of birds over the
year.
Commissioner Dewey
Weaver said this new ven-
ture is "a very worthwhile
event," and the board
passed Weaver's motion to
waive the fee for the event.

City Fire Department and
police officers responded
to a wreck at the intersec-
tion of U.S. Highway 90 and
Sandlin Avenue, where a
pickup truck and a car col-
lided. No one was injured
in the wreck and no cita-
tions were issued, but the
traffic on U.S. Highway
was blocked while crews
cleared the roadway.
Later, at 12:29 p.m., emer-
gency crews responded
to another wreck on U.S.
Highway 90 at the intersec-
tion of Hackney Lane, where
two people were taken to a
hospital with injuries.
According to police
reports, Patina Shaffer, 25,
of Lake City, was traveling
in a Chevrolet which col-
lided with a vehicle driven
by Joel Wayne Longshore,
of Brunswick, Ga.
Shaffer was traveling west
on U.S. Highway 90, with
James H. Cook, 18, of Bell,
as her passenger. Shaffer
and Cook were approaching
the intersection of Hackney
Lane during a heavy down-
pour and as Shaffer came to


the intersection she applied
the brakes.
Reports say Shaffer told
authorities her car hydro-
planed or slid across three
lanes of traffic into east-
bound lanes. Longshore
was headed eastbound on
the roadway and as Shaffer
crossed eastbound traffic,
Longshore crashed into the
passenger side of Shaffer's
vehicle.
Reports say Longshore
suffered major trauma to
the head and was taken
to Shands in Gainesville.
Shaffer was suffering from
abdominal pain. Cook, the
passenger in Shaffer's vehi-
cle, suffered a fractured pel-
vic bone.
Shaffer was given a cita-
tion for driving too fast for
conditions.
According to rainfall
monitoring equipment
at the Florida Division of
Forestry Suwannee District
office in Lake City, the area
received more than an
inch of rainfall before noon
Thursday. The Lake City
area received three inches


of rain between 11 a.m. and
3 p.m.
Columbia County

OUR
OPINION



Hope


springs


from the


ruins

sive earthquake
ripped apart the
physical, economic
and social landscape
of Haiti, there is little good
news coming from this poor
island nation.
Reports of amazing survival,
an open port and a now-navi-
gable roadway are encouraging,
but fail to supplant the reality:
tens of thousands of people
have died, there is a backlog
for medical care of 12 days and
millions of people with limited
resources, including no food
or water, have been displaced
from their homes.
Still, seeds of hope are hard
to crush. This week, that hope
was rewarded for many of our
local residents with direct ties
to Haiti. After more than seven
days of trying to make contact,
word filtered from this devastat-
ed country that their relatives
had lost everything - but not
their lives.
"A house can be replaced,"
one local Haiti native said, "a
life cannot."
These are inspiring words,
and words that reach beyond
hope to speak to the faith that
the world's nations will not for-
get these impoverished people.
Little good news may be
forthcoming today from Haiti,
but with our continued support,
such as the relief aid partner-
ship between Lake City Police
Department and Beulah Baptist
Association, we can ensure that
good news is delivered.

Lessons learned from a year in office


President Barack
Obama has just
marked one year in
office and has post-
poned his State of the
Union speech until next week.
It's no secret by now his public
support is in landslide mode.
The public voted him in with
strong support from indepen-
dents and some disenchanted
Republicans. One short year
later he's lost most of the inde-
pendent support and just about
all his GOP supporters, with his
overall approval rating hovering
around 44 percent.
What are the lessons of
his first year and how did he
go from hero to has-been so
quickly?
In the president's defense,
he entered office at one of the
worst points in recent American
history. The stock market was
collapsing, the credit system
(on which our economy deeply
depends) was in a freefall and
we were losing two wars, all at
once. I still believe to this day
that if George W. Bush had not
created a catastrophic environ-
ment by launching the Iraq war
for no particular reason, and
by fiddling while the financial
system burned, Barack Obama
would never have become
President Obama.
But as a result of Bush's
ineptitude, the public was clam-
oring for government economic
intervention. These factors com-
bined to create an opening for
a young, unknown, unproven,
but highly attractive and intel-
ligent politician to march into


LETTERS TO

Haiti support is vital
to America's interest
To the Editor:
What can you say about the
incredible poverty of spirit of
those who think America should
not help during the worst natu-
ral disaster in recent history?
It is a hollow concern of these
people to say that we must first
address poverty in America
when these same people will
scream the loudest the minute
any poverty issued is raised by
government - saying they are
taxed enough already.
America is a rich country.
We could change things for
the poor both here and around
the world should we want.
Unfortunately America prefers
to squander treasures with
senseless wars that have cost
taxpayers trillions in the last
decade, only to leave us more
vulnerable to those we have
outraged by our interference in
their countries.
All our aid to other countries
pales in comparison to what ,

the White House. When you
gamble, you often lose. His
supporters made a bet by sup-
porting a politician with much
less experience in national or
statewide office than I've ever
witnessed in my lifetime. And
so in a real sense, they were
voting for "hope" and "change,"
his two amorphous campaign
slogans. But beyond that they
had no clue about whom they
were electing. Neither did then-
Senator Obama, nor any of his
key staff.
I still watch in amazement as
the "not ready for prime time
players" try in all earnestness
to right the economy, be all
things to all people and turn
an America at war into one at
peace. But each time they make
bold moves, they come across
as strident. Each time they .try
to reach out to the GOP and
compromise, they lose more
and more of their strident base.
The lesson of not only this
week's Democratic loss in the
Massachusetts Senate race, but
also November's gubernato-
rial losses in two states run by
Democrats before the election


THE EDITOR

we spend to kill others. One
estimate of $5 billion spent
in African aid corresponds to
a mere 10 days of expenses
for our current wars. Another
figure shows we could have
created a social safety net for
Americans for 50 years with that
same money. We could have
built 8 million homes. We could
have paid 15 million teachers.
We could have helped not to
hurt others.
If you really want to help your
fellow Americans, demand an
end to spending our money for
death and destruction. Ask that
your leaders stop presenting
America as arrogant as Bush
did after Katrina, turning away
offers of help from countries as
diverse as Germany, Venezuela
and the very poor nation of
Honduras. He said, "America
can take care of herself." Ask
Katrina survivors how well he
did on that. Many still cannot
return to their homes.
Let us not do that in Haiti. It
is simply inhuman. No human
being deserves such disdain,


(Virginia and New Jersey) and
now governed by the GOP, is,
Democrats, slow down on the
spending.
The public is finally starting
to catch on that you cannot
pay for an almost-trillion dol-
lar financial institution bailout
package, and a huge economic
stimulus bill and add 30,000
more troops in Afghanistan
and pass universal health care
coverage all in the same year.
It's too much. Staggering Jimmy
Carter-style inflation and much
higher taxes are sure to follow.
I'm normally accused of being
a liberal (which I'm not - I toe
no ideological line) but even I
fear the impact of all this federal
spending on the economy. I said
the same thing when George W.
Bush launched two wars and cut
income taxes simultaneously.
It could not be done, but it was
done and Bush turned a $300
million surplus into a massive
deficit. Obama cannot continue
down this path.
The telegraph to Obama:
Stop spending and stop now!
If congressional Democrats
resort to raw politics to jam
through some half-baked ver-
sion of health care, they will
turn predicted sizable losses to
huge losses at the polls in the
mid-term elections. We've seen
parties pay for overestimating
their public mandate and we'll
see it again this November if
Democrats don't rein in their
free-spending tendencies.

Helping hands could

To the Editor:
Can we help the Haitian
people? Could we build FEMA-
type mobile homes and ship
them there so that people could
have roofs over their heads?
Couldn't such home construc-
tion that help kick-start our
local economies?
Should we send money or
building materials? Could our
out-of-work contractors go to
Haiti with experienced builders
and work along with the Haitian
people and help them rebuild?
We've sent money in the past
- did it help? Why not help

overcome the poverty stricken
country they live in today?

Between

two wolves

James von Brunn, 89,
died at a federal com-
plex in Butner, N.C. He
was undergoing mental
evaluation before
standing trial for the
alleged lone-wolf murder last
June of Steven Jones, 39, a
security guard at the U. S.
Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Von Brunn, a Holocaust
denier with a history of anti-
Semitism and extreme racist
views, was wounded by secu-
rity during the assault at the
Museum.
It's known that Von Brunn
was deeply influenced by the
1951 book, "The Iron Curtain
over America," by John T.
O'Beaty, where Von Brunn
said, "I learned how Jews had
destroyed Europe and were
now destroying America."
The book also claimed
Supreme Court Justice Felix
Frankfurter and Samuel
Rosenman, President Franklin
Roosevelt's speechwriter, were
part of a communist conspira-
cy and gave intellectual curren-
cy to some of the accusations
of Sen. Joseph McCarthy.
In the annals of political cra-
ziness, O'Beaty will go down
near the top, as one who feeds
dark impulses like those of von
Brunn. Writer Thomas Frank,
recently interviewed by PBS
TV commentator Bill Moyers,
called this kind of behavior
"the demented logic of our
politics."
Normal people require facts
as the building blocks to deter-
mine the truth to ward off
ignorance. Deranged interpret-
ers need help for their pho-
bias to sanitize .the mind and
sometimes, like von Brunn, a
psychiatrist.
The Texas State Board of
Education, by its actions on
Jan. 15, seems to want the
state's school children to take
several steps backward and
return to a discredited past by
deleting some of the people
and groups who helped make
social progress since the
1950s.
From a long list of proposed
changes to the social studies
curriculum - that will affect
4.7 million students in history,
government, geography and
economics - the Republican
majority on the board disap-
pioved covering the contribu-
tions of the late Sen. Edward
Kennedy and Supreme Court
Justice Sonia Sotomaior,
or mention of the Hisanic
civil-rights group the League
of United Latin American
Citizens, one with alongstand-
ing history of successes in
Texas.
Bill Moyer's words are
appropriate here: A Cherokee
Indian tribal elder told his
grandson about the battle tie
old man was waging within
himself. He said, "It is betw.n
two wolves, my son. One is at
evil wolf: anger, envy, sorrow
greed, self-pity, guilt, resent-
ment, lies, false pride, supe-
riority and ego. The other is
the good wolf: joy, peace, love
hope, serenity, humility, empa-
thy, generosity, truth, compas-
sion and faith."
The boy took this in for a
few minutes and then asked
his grandfather, "Which wolf
won?"
The old man replied, "The

Home loans fall to
4.99 percent
WASHINGTON -- Rates
for 30-year home loans fell to
a shade below 5 percent this
week but remained above
last month's record lows.
The average rate on a
30-year fixed mortgage was
4.99 percent, down from 5.06
percent a week earlier, mort-
gage company Freddie Mac
said Thursday.

Labor: Jobs scarce
despite recovery
WASHINGTON - A sur-
prising jump in first-time
claims for unemployment
aid sent a painful reminder
Thursday that jobs remain
scarce six months into the
economic recovery.
The surge in last week's
claims deflated hopes
among some analysts that


the economy would produce
a net gain in jobs in January
and help fuel the recovery,
A Labor Department
analyst said much of the
increase was due to holiday-
season-related administrative
backlogs at the state agen-
cies that process the claims


Obama pushing
banking regs
WASHINGTON -
President Barack Obama is
calling for tougher regula-
tions on banks that would
limit the size and complexity
of large financial institutions.
The proposal would limit
banks' ability to engage in
high-risk trades. Restrictions
would be placed on propri-
etary trading by commercial
banks to separate those
institutions from investment
banks.

Court eases election spending rule


By MARK SHERMAN
Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The
Supreme Court threw out
a 63-year-old law designed
to restrain the influence of
big business and unions
on elections Thursday, rul-
ing that corporations may
spend as freely as they like
to support or oppose can-
didates for president and
Congress. The decision
could drastically alter who
gives and gets hundreds
of millions of dollars in
this year's crucial midterm

By a 5-4 vote, the court

ASSOCIATED PRESS
In this Oct. 12, 2009, file photo, U.S. Marines with Alpha Company-Task Force Raider, 2nd,
V Recon Battalion, gather inside a combat outpost before a night mission in Helmand province,
j southern Afghanistan. The top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan plans to tighten the
.rules on night raids.


SU.S. to tighten rules on raids


By KIM GAMEL
. Associated Press

KABUL - NATO forces
in Afghanistan are prepar-
ing to limit night raids on
private homes, even if it
means losing some tactical
advantage, to curb rising
public anger.
NATO spokesman Rear
Adm. Gregory Smith told
The Associated Press in an
exclusive interview that a
directive would be issued
soon to set down the new
rules.
Nighttime raids on pri-
vate homes have emerged
as the Afghans' No. 1 com-
plaint after Gen. Stanley
McChrystal limited the use
ofairstrikes and other weap-
onry last year. The U.S. and
-allied nations have made
protecting the population a


priority over the use of mas-
sive firepower as they seek
to undermine support for
the Taliban.
"It addresses the issue
that's probably the most
socially irritating thing that
we do - and that is entering
people's homes at night,"
Smith said Wednesday at his
office in Kabul. He would
not elaborate pending a for-
mal announcement.
The U.S.-led force has
become increasingly sen-
sitive to complaints by
Afghan civilians as part of a
renewed effort to win sup-
port among the public and
lure people away from the
Taliban. Night operations
risk offending Afghan sen-
sitivity about men entering
homes where women are
sleeping.
Rafiullah Khiel, a Finance


Ministry employee whose
uncle was detained by
NATO forces during a
night raid last fall, said the
distraught women and chil-
dren in the compound were
rounded up and locked
in a watchtower for sev-
eral hours while soldiers
searched the dwellings.
Khiel said the soldiers
told the family that they had
information that the uncle,
a pharmacist, was treating
Taliban fighters.
"This is just unacceptable
to us, to our traditions,"
Khiel said, holding back
tears as he recounted. the
ordeal during an interview
in a home on the outskirts
of Kabul."
"These kinds of actions,
these wrong decisions, just

WASHINGTON - A
black bear named Lily
is may be about to give
birth in the wild live on the
Internet.
Biologist Lynn Rogers
says the birth in Lily's den
outside Ely, Minn. is a video
first. Rogers and his North
American Bear Center put
a camera in Lily's den that


streams her activity live at
www.bearorg/website/visit-
us/lily-den-cam. html.
Rogers says Lily appears
to have started labor
around 2 p.m. Central Time
Thursday.
Since then, Lily - has
pawed at her face, left her
den, and then returned
and has tried going back
to sleep. She brought in
balsam fir to set up bedding


and her mammary glands
appear swollen.
Rogers has been study-
ing bears for 43 years and
never seen a birth.
He predicts the 3-year-old
Lily will give birth some-
time today.
It's hard to capture a black
bear birth live because
they don't usually den near
where live cameras can be
set up.

LAKE CITY REPORTER NATION & WORLD FRIDAY, JANUARY 22, 2010


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Women push and shove while standing in line to receive one liter of water each distributed by
the U.S. Army's 82nd Airborne Division at a camp set up on a golf course in Port-au-Prince,
Wednesday. International aid flowing into Haiti after last week's earthquake has been strug-
gling with logistical problems, and many people are still desperate for food and water.

BRIEFS


Brown pays
courtesy call
BOSTON -
Massachusetts Republican
Scott Brown, whose surprise
win in the race to fill the late
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's
seat created the sonic
boom heard all the way to
Washington, was visiting the
nation's capital Thursday to
pay a round of courtesy calls
on his new colleagues.
Two days after his win cost
President Barack Obama his
filibuster-proof 60-vote major-
ity in the Senate, Brown was
making his first trip to the
institution he reordered and
the city he set abuzz after
Tuesday's upset election.

Clinton: China
must review case
WASHINGTON -
Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton on Thursday
urged China to investigate
cyber intrusions that led


Google to threaten to pull
out of that country - and
challenged Beijing to openly
publish its findings.

Pelosi: House
lacks votes
WASHINGTON - Speaker
Nancy Pelosi said Thursday
that she lacks the votes to
quickly move the Senate's
sweeping health overhaul
bill through the House, a
potentially devastating blow
to President Barack Obama's.
signature issue.
Pelosi, D-Calif., made
the comment to reporters
after House Democrats held
a closed-door meeting at
which participants vented
frustration with the Senate's
massive version of the legis-
lation.

Edwards admits
he fathered child
RALEIGH, N.C. - Former
Democratic presidential


candidate John Edwards
finally admitted Thursday
he fathered a child during
an affair before his second
White House bid, dropping
long-standing denials just
ahead of a book by a former
campaign aide who initially
took the fall.
Edwards admitted pater-
nity of the girl, Frances Quinn
Hunter, who was born in
2008 to videographer Rielle
Hunter as the result of an
affair Edwards has already
confessed to.

General: 1,400
planes waiting
WASHINGTON - With
more than 1,000 planes still
waiting to land in Haiti, the
commander of U.S. forces in
the region says officials have
opened a third alternate
airport to hasten the move-
ment of relief supplies. Gen.
Douglas Fraser said officials
have a waiting list of 1,400
flights to get into the country.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti
- Workers are carving out
mass graves on a hillside
north of Haiti's capital,
using earth-movers to bury
10,000 earthquake victims
in a single day while relief
workers warn that people
are still dying of their inju-
ries.
Medical clinics have
12-day patient backlogs,
untreated injuries are fes-
tering and makeshift camps
housing thousands of sur-
vivors could foster disease,
experts said.
"The next health risk
could include outbreaks of
diarrhea, respiratory tract
infections and other dis-
eases among hundreds of
thousands of Haitians living
in overcrowded camps with


poor or nonexistent sanita-
tion," said Dr. Greg Elder,
deputy operations man-
ager for Doctors Without
Borders in Haiti.
The death toll is estimat-
ed at 200,000, according to
Haitian government figures
relayed by the European
Commission, with 80,000
buried in mass graves: The
commission now estimates
2 million homeless, up from
1.5 million, and says 250,000
are in need of urgent aid.
Getting help in is still a
challenge. Gen. Douglas
Fraser, head of the U.S.
Southern Command run-
ning Haiti's airports, said
Thursday that 1,400 flights
are on a waiting list for slots
at the Port-au-Prince airport
that can handle 120 to 140
flights a day.
At least 50 sizable after-
shocks have jolted the city,
sending nervous Haitians


fleeing repeatedly into the
streets - and keeping
many sleeping in the open.
A magnitude4.9 quake on
Thursday prompted res-
cue crews to briefly aban-
don work on ruined build-
ings, though there/ were
no reports of casualties or
damage.
It followed a magnitude-
5.9 temblor a day earlier
that collapsed some struc-
tures. In the sparsely popu-
lated wasteland of Titanyen,
north of Port-au-Prince,
burial workers said the
macabre task of handling
the never-ending flow of
bodies was traumatizing.
"I have seen so many
children, so many children.
I cannot sleep at night
and, if I do; it isa constant
nightmare," said Foultone
Fequiert, 38, his face cov-
ered with a T-shirt against
the overwhelming stench.

Receiver named
most valuable
offensive player.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
Weather played a promi-
nent role in slowing down
the Florida offense in
Saturday's Florida-Georgia
Border Wars game, but
Jamaal Montague still
turned in a highlight play
to be named the Florida
Offensive Player of the
Game.
While Florida fell to
the Georgia all-stars,
20-3, Montague showed
why he's going to play at
the University of South
Florida in the fall.
The highlight of the day
for the Florida squad saw
Montague catching a pass
from North Marion High's
Chuck Looney.
The receiver raced


more than 75 yards to the
Georgia 5-yard line before
going down.
The play accounted for
much of the Florida squad's
offense in a day that rain
forced the player's hand.
Two turnovers in the red
zone accounted for Florida
being held out of the end
zone.
"The weather kind of
watered down the offense,"
Columbia High and Florida
all-stars head coach Craig
Howard said. "Montague
made a nice catch off a
scramble from Looney and
was able to run it down to
the 5."
Howard said the high-
light of the game for
Columbia players, other
than Montague's catch, was
a hit by Todd Steward.
"He flat knocked the guy
out in the flats," Howard
said. "Even after the game
people were still talking
about the hit."

NASCAR will

relax in effort to

energize sport


Changes coming
to Sprint Cup
in 2010.
By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press
CONCORD, N.C.- Have
at it, boys.
NASCAR is relaxing
some of its rules this sea-
son, and encouraging driv-
ers to show more aggres-
sion and emotion, in large
part to answer a growing
fan sentiment that the sport
had gone stale.
"There's an age old say-
ing that NASCAR, 'If you
ain't rubbing, you ain't rac-
ing,' " NASCAR president
Mike Helton said Thursday.
"I think that's what the
NASCAR fan, the NASCAR
stakeholders all bought
into, and all expect."


The first change will
be evident when the sea-
son opens next month at
Daytona International
Speedway, where restric-
tions on bump-drafting will
be lifted and horsepower
will be increased by the
use of the largest restrictor
plate since 1989.
NASCAR had been slow-
ly tightening its tolerance
on bumping at Daytona and
Talladega - the two big-
gest and fastest tracks in
the series, where the horse-
-power-sapping restrictor
plates are used to control
speeds - and it graduated
into an outright ban issued
the morning of the October
race at Talladega. The edict
sucked the drama out of
what's typically one of the
most exciting races of the
year, and was the final straw
for many race fans.

In this Nov. 1, 2009, file photo, Greg Biffle (16), Jeff Gordon (24) and Mark Martin (5) draft
during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race at Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega,
Ala. NASCAR has announced that restrictions on bump-drafting will be lifted, and horsepower
will be increased by the use of the large restrictor plates since 1989, effective at Daytona
next month.

Serena Williams chases down the shot from Petra Kvitova of Czech Republic during their
Women's singles match at the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne, Australia
on Thursday.


Williams sisters stay on


track for Slam semifinal


By DENNIS PASSA
Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia
- The Williams sisters
held court at the Australian
Open on Thursday, a back-
to-back Venus-Serena
doubleheader that left the
siblings still in the mix for
yet another Grand Slam
singles title.
Serena Williams, the
Australian Open defend-
ing champion who has 11
major singles titles, beat
Petra Kvitova of the Czech
Republic 6-2, 6-1. Venus, who
has seven, defeated Austrian
Sybille Bammer 6-2, 7-5.
Top-seeded Roger
Federer beat Victor
Hanescu 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 in a
night match at Rod Laver
Arena attended by Prince
William, second in line to
the British throne.
Federer lost last year's
Australian final to Rafael
Nadal, who plays his third-
round match on Friday.
Federer acknowledged
Prince William in the crowd
after the match.
"Your Royal Highness,
welcome to the world of
tennis. Thanks for com-
ing," Federer said.
Venus preceded her
sister at Hisense Arena


with the roof open under
a warm, sunny Melbourne
afternoon that morphed
into an early evening sky
streaked by twilight.
Only one Williams can
make it through to the
final on Jan. 30 - they are
drawn to face each other
in the semifinals if they
advance that far. The way
they played Thursday, it's a
good chance they will.
Serena, who has won the
Australian Open every odd-
numbered year since 2003,
was more dominant, com-
pleting her match in just
over an hour and convert-
ing four of her 11 break-
point chances.
"I feel if I play well, I
can beat anybody," Serena
Williams said.
Serena didn't know how
her sister was doing before
she went on court.
"No, I didn't watch
Venus," Serena said. "I can't
really watch her on TV, and
definitely not before I play.
I get way too nervous."
Venus Williams, who
has been to the final at
Melbourne Park just once,
when she lost to her sis-
ter in 2003, spent about 30
minutes more on court to
beat Bammer. She faced
her second left-hander in


a row - she beat Lucie
Safarova in the first round.
"Playing two lefties in
the first two rounds is little
unusual, but I was up for
the challenge," Venus said.
"Her game is a little bit dif-
ferent from most people,
so really have to be a little
more patient because she's
kind of hitting a kind of a
moonball almost. I just had
to just make sure I stayed
on my rhythm."
Ana Ivanovic, the 2008
Australian Open finalist
and French Open winner
the same year, never found
her rhythm. She extended
her run of poor results in
a second-round 6-7 (6), 7-5,
6-4 loss to Gisela Dulko of
Argentina.
Since her French Open
win, she has failed to get
past the fourth round of a
major six times.
Ivanovic says she's still
a work in progress and is
probably playing better
than in 2008, when she
attained the No. 1 ranking.
Personal pressure might
be the difference.
"I think it's expectations
from myself that I put,"
Ivanovic said. "Actually, I
think I'm striking the ball
better now than I did in 2008
or any previous years. "

DEAR ABBY


Daughter of murdered man


rejoices in holiday miracle


�1 p


DEAR ABBY: I wrote
you in October and re-
ceived your personal reply.
I'm the girl whose dad was
murdered, and I was look-
ing for a support group. You
referred me to the National
Organization of Parents of
Murdered Children,' which
provides mutual support to
persons who have survived
the violent death of some-
one close (www.pomc.org).
I have a little "upper" for
you now. We all know about
the letters you have printed
about Pennies from Heav-
en, but I don't know if there
ever has been one like this.
My (dad always wore a
gold cross around his neck.
He never, ever took it off,
so naturally I asked the fu-
neral director to have him
shown in it but asked that
it be removed before the
burial.
Well, lo and behold, it
was nowhere to be found.
So we called everywhere
we could think of to locate
it and ended up thinking
that somewhere along the
way from his being killed,
taken to the ER, to autopsy,
to the funeral home, it had
been lost forever.
A few days before Christ-
mas, we found it! It was in a
box of pennies my dad had
collected. He must have
taken it off before he left
that night because he had
been seen in it earlier that


A l..� ' . ,

day.
We all believe in mira-
cles, and this is my very
own Christmas miracle.
Thank you, Abby, for every-
thing you do for so many of
us who are suffering. I love
you. - SARAH
DEAR SARAH: Thank
you for your kind letter. It
touched my heart as I know
it will the hearts of my read-
ers. I don't know when your
father removed his cross,
but take comfort in know-
ing he left it to -bring you
solace, and I hope that it
serves its purpose. I love
you, too.
DEAR ABBY: I have a
great job working with peo-
ple I enjoy, and probably the
coolest boss in the world.
There is just one little prob-
lem. He keeps asking me to
go out with his daughter.
She is a wonderful per-
son, smart and absolutely
beautiful - but she is also
recently divorced. I'm
afraid I would just be the
"in-between" guy for her
- a stepping-stone to her
recovery. In other words,


HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Follow your
instincts when it comes to
love and personal relation-
ships. Stick to people who
have common interests and
beliefs. Socializing will lead
to a chance meeting with
someone who has some-
thing worthwhile to offer.

TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): You may have
to confront someone you
care for in order to follow
through with your plans.
Anger will get you nowhere
but generosity, understand-
ing and the power of per-
suasion will help you get
your way. An authoritative
figure will have a change of
heart. ***
GEMINI (May 21-
June 20): You can take
care of any personal prob-
lems you face with some-
one you love or want to get
into a relationship with by
addressing issues head-on.
Your intentions will be up
for discussion and you'll
need to explain in depth
to put the people you care
about at ease. ****
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Don't overreact
or become suspicious when
there is nothing to worry
about. You will cause prob-
lems at a personal level if
you try to limit or restrict
someone you love. You
must hide your emotions
even if it is difficult. **


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Word

LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): Avoid people who are
always down-and-out or
negative. You need to keep a
positive attitude if you want
to excel. Take a creative ap-
proach to your money mat-
ters and you will find a way
to make your dollars work
for you. *****
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Welcome any opposi-
tion and you will find out
quickly whom you can
trust. Changes to your cur-
rent living arrangements
will enable you to accom-
modate someone or some-
thing you want to pursue.
Don't worry about com-
plaints. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Don't let anything
slow you down or stand in
your way. Take on whatever
challenge you face and you
will surprise someone you
want to get to know better.
An emotional situation will
allow you to make a com-
mitment and stabilize your
future. ***
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Look forward
with optimism and stop
wasting your time living in
the past. You can't change
what's already happened
but you can do something
about the future. Conduct
your .plans with strength


and courage until you reach
your goals. ***
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Love, ro-
mance and socializing will
bring about opportunities
to make significant person-
al changes. A short trip will
pay off if you visit someone
you miss or want to recon-
nect with. *****
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): You'll have
trouble handling your emo-
tions, especially if you are
upset about a financial, le-
gal or. health matter. You
must face problems head
on and refuse to let anyone
criticize or bring you down.
**
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): It's vital that
you keep moving forward
so that you don't slip back
into old ways or habits.
Someone you've known for
a long time is interested in
getting to know you bet-
ter. Get back to doing the
things you used to ioy.

PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Limitations
will prevail when dealing
with -a professional col-
league or partner but, if
you take action and show
what you have to offer, you
can make headway. Set new
ground rules and make
sure everyone involved in
your plan gets equal billing.
