CCSO: Homeowners robbed at gunpoint


Officials are still
searching for
suspects.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
HIGH SPRINGS- Three
men wearing ski masks,
armed with handguns broke
into a High Springs' home
Tuesday night, robbed the


home and 'pistol-whipped'
one of the homeowners
before they fled the scene,
reports state.
The Columbia County
Sheriff's Office. has
launched an investigation
into the home invasion rob-
bery and is seeking help
from the public to get addi-
tional information about the
case.
According to sheriff's


office reports, the incident
occurred around 11:45 p.m.
at 179 SE Happy Valley
Glen in High Springs, when
three men wearing black
ski masks armed with guns
entered the house.
'They entered, through
an unlocked door,'" said
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office public information
officer Sgt. Ed Seifert. "The
two occupants of the home


were accosted by the sus-
pects and ordered to hand
over their money. One of
the suspects then struck a
resident in the face with a
handgun, causing a lacera-
tion. The subject hit with
the gun received minor
injuries."
Reports state the sus-
pects then fled from the
home in an unknown direc-
tion.


"The suspects were in
the home for less than 30
minutes," Seifert said.
Reports say the suspects
stole cash, cell phones and
a Sony PlayStation.
Columbia County
Sheriff's Office deputies
conducted a crime scene
investigation and canvassed
the entire area looking for
evidence and the suspects.
"Officers were on site for


well over an hour," Seifert
said. "They were process-
ing the crime scene, inter-
viewing the victims and
canvassing the area."
Although the home has a
High Springs address, the
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office is handling the
case and authorities from

Budgeting taxes


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Columbia County Tax Collector Ronnie Brannon thumbs through at least 300 applications for an annual quarterly
installment program designed to save taxpayers money. Taxpayers can pay their property or real estate taxes in four
payments. Deadlines for applications end May 1.

optional tax
payment pro-..
gram that will
save taxpayers
money and
allow them to better bud-
get their tax payment is
now being offered.
Taxpayers can take
advantage of an annual
quarterly installment pro-
gram allowed by Florida
statutes that provides the
option of quarterly, dis-
counted payments for tax-
payers paying their 2010 ad
valorem taxes, said Ronnie
Brannon, Columbia County
tax collector.
"It's a program whereby
taxpayers can pay their
ad valorem taxes (such
as property taxes or real


estate taxes) in four pay-
ments," Brannon said.
All applications for
the program need to be
received by May 1, and

there are no additional -
costs for taxpayers opting
to sign up, BrannoA said.

for more than 25 years,
. Brannon said.
"We've got people that's
been on this program for
many, many years," he
said.
Under the program, a
taxpayer will receive four
different bills in June,
September, December
and March to split pay-
ments instead of having to
pay their taxes all at once
in November when the
2010 tax roll is received,
Brannon said.
Taxpayers will be billed
at a quarter of their prior
year's tax rate for June and
September, Brannon said,
and December and March
payments will be adjusted
and recalculated using the
2010 tax rate.

in competition


By TONY BRITT

Teams of local fifth grad-
ers put their brains to use
for school pride, personal
achievement and the ability
to show off their academic
prowess Wednesday at an
annual academic competi-
tion.
The students were com-
peting in the 27th Annual
Joe Sloan Memorial
Think Sharp Competition
which 'was held from 9
a.m. to 1:45 at the Lake
City Community College
Conference Center.
Melrose Park Elementary
School bested Summers
Elementary School to win
this year's competition.
Melrose Park Elementary
School fifth-grade teacher
Kim Taylor serves as the
school's Think Sharp team
coach. She said winning
this year's competition says
a lot for the school and the
effort put forth by students
and teachers.
"We've put a lot of prac-
tice into this. We've worked


three/four days a week
practicing and this means
we've worked our hardest,
and we've come out on top,"
she said.
Taylor has been involved
with the competition for
three years, but this is her
first time having her team
win the event.
"I love this competition,"
she said. 'To put other ele-
mentary schools together
and set them head-to-head
competing for everything
- I love doing this. We
are a low socio-economic
school and for Melrose and
my students to win, that
shows everybody that we
can come out on top."
The Kiwanis Club of Lake
City is one of the event spon-
sors and its president Koby
Adams helped throughout
the event.
"The reason the Kiwanis
Club is in existence is for
the kids," he said. "Our
club works to help sponsor
several things in the com-
munity and for the Think
Sharp (Competition), we've
been doing it for 20 years.
It's a good investment in
the community."

Moore talks about small-town life


Artist to perform
at Suwannee
River Jam.
By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter. corn
Growing up in a small
town in Arkansas, Justin
Moore always felt that
country music was the
soundtrack to his life.


Now a Nashville-based
recording artist, whose
debut single, "Small Town
USA," was a No. 1 hit in
2009, is preparing for his
first performance at the
Suwannee River Jam.
Moore is scheduled to take
the stage tonight.
"The first time I heard
about it, I thought it was
really cool," Moore said
about the Suwannee River


Jam during a telephone
interview Tuesday. "And
it just worked out being
perfect because we were
going to be in that direc-
tion. I always go through
the things we get offered
to. do, and I'd heard a lot
of things about this event
from some of my buddies
who have played it in the
past. It should be fun."
Moore, now 26, didn't


start playing music until his
senior year in high school,
but had aspirations as a pro-
fessional baseball player. It
wasn't until his father told
him that he should try to
make a career in music that
he began to seriously con- *
sider it.

a town of 300 people in

Daily ScriDture


VILNIUS, Lithuania
H eavy-metal masters
Metallica braved long
bus and boat rides
- and bitter memories
of a band member's
death - to dodge the fallout of an
Icelandic volcano and stick to its rig-
orous European tour schedule.
Lead guitarist Kirk Hammett
told reporters in Vilnius, where the
band was giving its second concert
Wednesday, that Metallica traveled
28 hours to get from Oslo to the
Latvian capital of Riga - a trip that
normally takes just over two hours
by plane.
"I just could not relax, thinking,
'Wow, those buses have changed a
lot since we traveled.' They are so
much more comfortable. You see,
we did not use this means of trans-
portation for more than two decades
since the tragedy," Hammett told
reporters.
In September 1986, during a
European tour, bassist Cliff Burton
was killed when the band's bus skid-
ded out of control and flipped several
times near Dorarp, Sweden.
"When we boarded the bus
again this week and had to travel
overnight, I realized that those bad
memories are still here. I still haven't
overcome the fear of buses. But the
show must go on," Hammett said.
After a bus ride from Oslo to
Stockholm, the band on Friday
boarded a Tallink cruise ship and
sailed to Riga, where it performed a
day later.
On board the ship were many
astonished Metallica fans who
- grounded by the closed airports
- grabbed last-minute tickets to
make the Riga show.
"It was kind of exciting, like a
big party," said Liga Viskinte, 23, ai
Latvian who works in Stockholm but
traveled home to see the concert.
She said Metallica singer James


ASSOCIATED PRESS
American heavy metal band Metallica perform on stage during their World
Magnetic tour in Vilnius, Lithuania, Tuesday.


Hetfield and bassist Robert Trujillo
drank beer in the ship's crowded
karaoke bar, where they watched
a passenger do a rendition of
"Whiskey in the Jar."
"The singing was awful, but no
one seemed to mind," said Viskinte.
Metallica is scheduled to leave
Lithuania for Moscow on Thursday
- and Hammett said they'll be tak-
ing the train, an approximate 13-hour
journey, unless airspace restrictions
are lifted.
"It would take a really great force
to stop us," Hammett said, adding
that he had no idea how the band
and its road crew would get back to
the U.S. from Russia. "But we'll fig-
ure it out somehow."

Television feud between
Goldberg, Stewart
NEW YORK - It's getting rough
between Jon Stewart and Fox News
Channel commentator Bernard
Goldberg.


Goldberg told Stewart to "find
some guts." In response, Stewart
brought a gospel choir to "The Daily
Show" on Tuesday to
curse him out.
Last week,
Stewart's show did a
segment about how
Fox News commen-
tators criticized Tea
Stewart Party opponents for
judging the move-
ment based on the bad actions of a
few. Stewart played tape of Fox per-
sonalities, including Goldberg, mak-
ing generalizations about liberals.
Goldberg pleaded guilty. But on
Monday's "The O'Reilly Factor," he
urged Stewart to show guts and be
tough on liberal guests.
He said Stewart thinks he's edgy,
but is Jay Leno with a smaller audi-
ence who gets to swear.
Responded Stewart: "If you think
I'm Leno with an f-bomb, you know
less about comedy than you do about
politics."

2 teens face
felony charges
GAINESVILLE - Two
teenage cousins were
arrested on felony charges
after an explosive device
went off at a Gainesville
middle school.
According to Gainesville
police, on Tuesday a 13-
year-old boy enrolled
at Hoggetowne Middle
School set off a simple,
three-ingredient device
near the school.
Police also said there
were about 25 witnesses,
but no one was injured.
There was also no damage
to property.
Authorities say the boy's
16-year-old cousin was
arrested for reportedly
teaching him to make it.
The 13-year-old faces
charges including posses-
sion of a destructive device
and discharging a weapon
on school grounds. The
other teen was charged
with manufacturing a
destructive device.


goes to school
FORT LAUDERDALE -
A South Florida teenager
who was doused with rub-
bing alcohol and set on fire
last year is back at school,
though not the same one
he went to before.
Police say other teens
from Michael Brewer's
school attacked him at
his apartment complex in
October, leaving him with
burns over about 65 per-
cent of his body.
The 15-year-old said
Tuesday on the 'Today"
show that he feels great
and that he misses school.
He was burned a day
after he called police to say
some other teens had tried
to steal his father's bike.
Michael might also have
owed one of the teens
accused of burning him
money for a video game.

Senate votes to
ban smoking pipes
TALLAHASSEE - The
Florida Senate has voted
to ban the sale of smoking
pipes and similar items
except at.stores that most-
ly sell tobacco products.
Possession and' sale of
drug paraphernalia already
is a crime, but the bill that
passed 36-0 Wednesday is
aimed at devices that can
be used for tobacco as well
as illegal substances.
It would exempt busi-
nesses getting at least 75
percent of gross sales from
. tobacco products and no
more than 25 percent from
the prohibited items.
Those include bongs,
water pipes, chamber
pipes, electric pipes, air-
driven pipes, chillums,
and ice pipes or chillers.
Violators could face a year
in jail.
It now goes to the
House where a similar bill
is awaiting a floor vote.

TALLAHASSEE - The

State lawmakers
Wednesday passed resolu-
tions urging Congress to
use its authority to block

pects and reject cap and
trade legislation designed
to fight climate change.
Democrats argued
against the "memorials"
they derided as meaning-
less.
The terrorism resolution
passed 83-28. The climate
change measure passed on
a voice vote.
Also on a voice vote, the
House passed a memo-
rial urging Congress to
require additional scien-
tific review of proposed

Continued From Page 1A

Arkansas, that's kind of
unattainable," he said. "But I
was in college and honestly
didn't care anything about
being there, so I thought I'd
give it a shot."
It wasn't easy. As a new
artist in Nashville, Moore
said many publishing com-
panies were unwilling to
give their top material to
him, so he began writing
his own music. On his debut
album, Moore penned every
song but one.
"Looking back, I couldn't
imagine, being an artist
without writing songs,
and vice-versa," he said.
"I enjoy both of those pro-
cesses, and I'm not one of
those guys who has to cut
every song on my album
that I write, but it's good
for me to do both and I
think it comes across more
genuine if I sing a song I
wrote, as opposed to one I
didn't. There are great art-
ists who don't write their
own music and have great
careers, but for me person-
ally, it works better for me
that way."
Moore said he consid-
ers Keith Whitley and John
Anderson as influences, -and
his favorite artist of all-time
is Dwight Yoakam.
"I know many peo-


ple think that is strange
because we don't sound
anything alike, but I just
thought guys like that -
nobody will ever be like
them again," he said.
And while a fan of south-
ern rock, he said, grow-
ing up in a small town in
Arkansas, he identified
more with country music.
"It just described the
way it was growing up in
rural Arkansas," he said. "I
always felt like it was talk-
ing about me."
Following the release of
his self-titled debut album,
Moore said the tour took
him to some out-of-the-
way places, and included a
number of acoustic sets.in
Walmart stores.
"When we put the album
out, we did a 'Small Town
USA' tour, and played a lot
of places where nobody
goes and plays," he said.
"When I was younger, I
thought it would be cool if
people came to my town,
and I'm an artist that needs
to play the smaller ven-
ues as well as the bigger
ones. It's a blast to play at a
sold out arena, but there's
something cool about look-
ing someone in the eyes or
shaking sdmeo-ne's" hands
who is providing me with


a career.
"Of course, probably the
strangest performance was
in a place in California,"
Moore said. '"The maximum
occupancy.of this place was
180, and I bet there were
about 500 people there.
I'm not the tallest guy in
the world, and there was a
wagon wheel welded to the
front of the stage. All you
could see of me was from
the neck up. It was a great
crowd though."
Moore's current single,
"Backwoods," is trending
up the country charts now,
and Moore said he wants
the success to continue.
"You know what, if I told
you I didn't want to have
10 more number ones and
sell a million records, I'd
be lying," he said. "But I
want to look back in 10
years and still be doing the
same thing. Over the past
two years, we've seen our
shows grow and me as an
artist grow, and I want to
look back and see that it's
grown in the next 10 years
what it's grown in the past
two.
"And personally, I want
to look back and know that
people said, 'That Justin
was a good guy ... and a
pretty good singer too."

Competition was an aca-
demic competition for local
fifth grade students from
the county's nine public
elementary schools and
Epiphany Catholic School.
During the competition
each school was repre-
sented by a team of stu-
dents which answered
academic questions dem-
onstrating their academic
knowledge.
As part of this year's
event, there, were nine
rounds with five matches
each.
In each match, there


were four questions and if
a team correctly answered
the "toss-up" question it
was given an opportunity to
answer a bonus question.
The two highest scor-
ing teams, Melrose Park
Elementary and Summers
Elementary, participated in
a championship round with
10 questions.
"It's important to have
a competition like this'
because the material that
is there is on the stu-
dents' grade level, but it
also extends beyond," said
Columbia School District


director of curriculum
assessment and account-
ability Kitty McElhany.
"When the questions are.
developed they're devel-
oped within the particular
grade level the participants
are in. Most of the ques-
tions, probably 95 percent,
were on academic content
in math, language arts,
science or social studies.
There were a few general
knowledge types of ques-
tions. The important thing
is the students see that aca-
demics is just as important
as athletics."


TAXES: Applications due by May 1
Continued From Page 1A


While the Maich pay-
ment is not discounted,
Brannon said discounts
for the June, September
and December payments
are 6 percent, 4.5 percent
and 3 percent, respectively.
Brannon also said discounts
will only be applied if the,
payment is made by the last
day of the payment month.
Brannon said if the tax-
payer misses the June pay-
ment, they will automati-


cally be dropped from the
program, but if the initial
payment is made on time, a
taxpayer will remain oh the
plan until they ask to be
removed.
The payment plan will
not save a taxpayer more
money than if he opted
to pay his whole bill in
November because of a 4
percent discount he can
receive at that time, but
it will still save the tax-


payer money through its
discounts and allow them
to budget and plan ahead,
Brannon said.
'The key thing for this
payment plan quarterly
is to budget it where you
make four payments
instead of one," he said.
To apply for the pro-
gram, call Brannon at (386)
758-1080 or visit his office
at 135 NE Hernando Ave.,
'Suite 125.

OUR
OPINION


Motorcycles

add much

needed

protection

Sometimes an idea
makes such perfect
sense we wonder why
it wasn't thought of
earlier.
That's not quite the case with
Lake City Police Department's
stepped-up traffic detail, but it's
close.
LCPD has for years had two
Harley Davidson Road King
police motorcycles in its stable
of law-enforcement vehicles.
For the past two years, those
motorcycles have registered
scant mileage - and much of
that limited to parade duty.
Yet, one of Lake City's fore-
most concerns is the amount of
traffic accidentsand infractions
registered on its roadways. In
the past six months, the depart-
ment has reported more than
425 accidents.and registered
nearly 1,400 citations. -
Even with our community's
proximity to two major inter-
state arteries, these numbers
are staggering and present a
challenge that LCPD officers
have rightly identified as one of
their top two areas of concern.
Motorcycle patrols and
details, with their added mobil-
ity, maneuverability and aggres-
sive potential, are uniquely
suited to this type of challenge.
Chief Argatha Gilmore is right
to pull these vehicles out.of
mothballs to aid in the depart-
ment's battle against traffic
infractions.
We.realize that two, addi-....
tional full-time police vehicles,
complemented by specially
trained officers, will not solve
the elevated number of traffic
concerns plaguing Lake City
- only drivers can do that.
But the continued presence
of motorcycle officers on our
roadways will add a much need-
ed tool to help limit the severity
of the problem.

New idea for ending 'Big Lie' politics


e never really
notice the-line
when we are
crossing it.
But we have
a lot of expertise at looking
back through our rearview mir-
rors to see what happened. And
at creating blue-ribbon panels
to tell us how we could have
avoided the horror and vio-
lence we suffered - by cross-
ing the line from political anger
to rage.,
Someday soon we will read
the next blue-ribbon report of
how Hate City's usual practice
- of telling 'ordinary lies about
opponents spun wildly out of
control. How America was bom-
barded by Big Lies. How genu-
inely concerned Americans,
already fearful of losing their
jobs, came to believe the worst
about their new president and
fear what his policies could do
to their lives.
Today we must be painfully
aware that rage can beget vio-
lence - and that words can
motivate violent responses.
Yet, Sarah Palin delights in tell-
ing audiences, "Don't retreat,
reload!" - then basking in their
cheers. Now she disingenuously
adds that slogan has nothing to
do with violence.
This week, the media
reflected on can-it-happen-again
parallels as the nation somberly
commemorated-the 15th anni-
versary of the bombing of the
Oklahoma City federal building;
in which anti-government ter-
rorist Timothy McVeigh killed
168 people.
Also, we can see parallels
in the presidential campaign
year of 1968, when Martin
Luther King Jr. and Robert E
Kennedy were assassinated as.
anti-Vietnam War protests swept
the nation that was still grieving
after John E Kennedy's assas-

Clarifying plan behind
Amendment 4
To the Editor:
In reference to a story,
"Officials oppose Amendment
4 on courthouse Steps," (April
16): The article quotes an
Amendment 4 opponent saying
that voters would be required
to vote on "something as simple
as adding a traffic light." That's
not true: Amendment 4 requires
voter approval only of localcom-
prehensive land-use plan chang-
es. Amendment 4 does not apply
to the more frequently decided
individual development approv-
als, re-zonings or variances.
Under Amendment 4, your
city or county commission will
study, hold public hearings,
and vote as usual on proposed
changes to the local comprehen-

sination less than five years
earlier.
Today, voices of anger and
occasionally rage are heard
whenever truly concerned
citizens gather at events such
as those.conducted under the
largely conservative, nomi-
nally independent but definitely
Republican-leaning movement
known as the Tea Party.
The anger vented at these
events has so far remained in
the realm of proper.politics
- with the exception of isolated
lunacies voiced by a few indi-
viduals.
But we know about the voices
or rage - and especially the
comments of lunacy - because
they have dominated the news
coverage of the Tea Party
events.
To be sure, my news col-
leagues are right to report what
is said at these events - by
speakers and those that flock to
hear them.
But we need to be aware of
the proper roles - and pres-
ent-day failings - of the three
pillars of governance in our
democracy:
* The Politicians: On the
right and left, politicians mainly
court their backers, telling
them what they want to hear,
and distort the positions of the
opposition.
* The People: Voters unfor-
tunately want their leaders
to feed their preconceptions
and avoid telling them tough

sive land-use plan. Amendment
4 adds one new step: Voters
will get the chance to veto
or approve the commission's
decision at the next regularly
scheduled Election Day. It's that
simple.
In Columbia County, there
were three future land use
changes in 2007, one in 2008,
and no changes to the future
land use map in 2009, accord-
ing to the state Department
of Community Affairs. That's
not "hundreds" of changes,
as the story quotes. Under
Amendment 4, Columbia;
County citizens would have
voted four times over two years.
If you agree with your commis-
sion's approval, vote for it. If
not, veto it.
Lake City Mayor Stephen
Witt is incorrect in saying that if


truths. The vox populi seems
to resound: "Please lie to me!"
The politicos are pleased to
oblige.
I The Press: As I've often
observed, we in the news
media cannot help but fan the
flames as we cover the fires.
We heighten tensions because
we focus on the sensational.
The media fails to provide
people with what they need
most - straight explanations
of which statements by politi-
cians are true and which are
false.
While voters were bombard-
ed with frightening allegations
about what the Democratic
health care reform propos-
als would do their health care
insurance, the Obama admin-
istration and Congress proved
inept for months at putting out
the truth in ways that would
be convincing. And mainly, the
news media proved inadequate
to the job of sorting truth from
deceit.
One news organization
excelled: FactCheck.org, a
Web site directed by veteran
Washington journalist Brooks
Jackson and funded by the
Annenberg Public Policy
Center of the University of
Pennsylvania, publishes its run-
ning list of allegations made
by critics - and notes what
is accurate and what is false.
FactCheck has done nothing
that others in the mainstream
media (which is now but a
trickle of its former self) could
not have done if properly moti-
vated..
So here's a suggestion that
just may motivate my main-
stream media colleagues - a
new series titled: "Naked Truths
About Healthcare Reform."

Florida Hometown Democracy
Amendment 4 passes in
November, citizens will have
to pay for special elections. No
special elections are required.
It's ironic that officials chose
the courthouse steps as a place
to urge citizens not to empower
themselves with a vote on
growth in their hometowns.
Shouldn't we get the chance
to weigh in on new growth that
hits us in the pocketbook? A
recent study found that local
taxpayers pay up to 40 percent
of the actual cost of servicing
new development projects.
These are the costs for new
schools, roads, police, fire,
water and sewer services. We
should get to vote before we're
forced to pay.

An abrupt;

unexpected

goodbye

e were never .,
what you'd
call the best of
friends. But we
were ... close.:.
So close.
Inseparable at times.
We had our differences, yes.
So many differences.
But four years is a long time
to stay together, especially
in a graceless age of planned
obsolescence, where nothing
is expected to last for long, and
relationships die quicker than a
potted mum on my back patio.
It was like a marriage. We
didn't always see eye to eye,
but the more we worked
together, the easier it became
to know what to expect
Somehow we managed to
make the best of it.
I knew it couldn't last.
Sometimes late at night, I'd lie
awake wondering what if some-
thing happened. What would
I do? How would I survive?
Looking back, I realize there
were things I should have done,
to prepare myself. But no. I did
nothing, except worry.
Then last week, when I least
expected it, the inevitable
finally happened.
My laptop died. One minute
it was working fine. Then all of
a sudden, for no good reason,"
it started making a sinister'
noise - click, click, whirr,
click, click.
I am no technical wizard, but
I knew enough to know that
"click, click, whirr" is computer
talk for "I am about to seize up
and die on you." So I'did the.
only technically smart thing to
do: I shut it off and waited.
While I waited, my life
passed before my eyes as I
recalled all the things that I
had stored on that computer
- four years' worth of col-
umns, hundreds of photos and
about three-fourths of a novel
that I'd had great hopes of fin-
ishing someday.
Yes, I had been warned
repeatedly that I needed to
save all those things someplace
other than on my computer. My
husband had actually given me
a contraption that was supposed
to "back up" my files.
I held my breath. Pushed
the "on" button. "Click, click,
whirr" again. Then a blue
screen appeared with a warn-
ing message that said, in effect,
"Kiss your files and your life as
you knew it goodbye."
Imagine my surprise to find,
minutes later, when I tried to
call a computer repair place,
that my cell phone - which
had been acting a bit wonky
for a couple of days ever since
I accidentally dropped it in the
bathtub - had decided to give
up the e-ghost, too.
That meant, of course, that
all the numbers I had stored in
the phone were probably gone.
Talk about getting
unplugged. I spent the next
three days and a chunk of my
children's inheritance trying to
reconstruct my e-life.
Lucky for me, undeserving
fool that I am, the 12-year-old
wizards at the computer store
magically retrieved all my files
and put them on a new laptop.
And a woman who claimed to
be older than I am managed to
transfer my numbers to a new
phone.
Sometimes, once in a while,
we get a second chance.
From now on, I swear I'll
-back up everything that's on
my laptop and my phone. Soon
as I learn how to use them.

"We're trying to increase
motorist awareness of
crossing safety and to
inform pedestrians of laws
pertaining to trespassing
on railroads rights of way,"
said Florida Department
of Transportation District
II ,spokeswoman Gina
Busscher. "We accomplish
this through the three E's
- education, enforcement
and engineering."
According to Operation
Lifesaver, the Florida Rail
Safety Education Group:
* Over the past five
years, there were 494 cross-
ing car crashes resulting in
184 injuries and 91 deaths.
* In the last five years,
140 people were killed
walking/or trespassing on
railroad property and 86
were injured.

FWC urges caution on Suwannee River


From staff reports

Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
officials are urging water
craft operators to use extra
precaution when operating
vessels on the Suwannee
River because of Gulf stur-
geon.
Gulf sturgeon begin their
annual migration back into
the Suwannee River dur-
ing April and FWC officials
remind boaters to slow
down and be aware these
fish have started jumping.
Two people were injured
in accidental collisions with
jumping sturgeon during


2009.
"Just one person getting
hurt is too many," said Maj.
Lee Beach, regional law
enforcement commander
for the FWC's North Central
Region, based in Lake City.
'We want people to be aware
the sturgeon are returning,
and the risk of injury to
boaters does exist."
In 2006, FWC officials
began working on a pub-
lic awareness campaign to
alert boaters to the risks of
jumping sturgeon.
'We have posted signs at
each boat ramp along the
Suwannee, explaining the
risk of impacts with these


fish," Beach said. 'We will
be checking those boat
ramps to ensure the signs
are still in place, and our offi-
cers will be on water patrol
during this period and into
the summer months in a
continued effort to educate
boaters on this issue."
FWC officials recom-
mend boaters reduce their
speed to reduce the risk of
impact and to give people
more time to react if they
do encounter a jumping
sturgeon. The FWC also
recommends that all boat-
ers wear their life jackets.
The iSuwannee River
appears to support the


largest viable population of
Gulf sturgeon. Biologists
estimate the annual popula-
tion at 10,000-14,000 fish,
averaging approximately 40
pounds each.
Adult fish spend eight to
nine months each year in the
river spawning and three to
four of the coolest months in
Gulf waters. Sturgeon tend
to congregate in deeper and
cooler waters with moder-
ate currents and sandy and'
rocky bottoms.
Biologists are unsure why
sturgeon jump. Theories
include that the fish jump to
communicate or as a domi-
nance display.

Balance

problems

need to be

addressed

DEAR DR. GOTI: I
have been having balance
problems for almost a
year. I've seen an ear doc-
tor for possible vertigo, a
cardiologist for possible
heart/circulation problems
and a general practitioner
with my concerns. I have
to hold on to the wall to
turn around when I take
a shower and always feel
pressure at the base of my
neck. I tend to feel off bal-
ance even when walking.
I have no other sensation
when I'm sitting, and I
sleep quite well.
Please help with at least
a suggestion, because I
have had no diagnosis from
any of the five doctors I've
seen. I even saw a neurolo-
gist, who only suggested
physical therapy. I'm hop-
ing for a response.
DEAR READER:
It's time for a second
- or sixth - opinion.
Something is being missed,
and I am concerned about
the complaint of constant
pressure at the base of
your neck.
There are a number
of balance disorders that
can be caused by a vari-
ety of medical conditions.
Commonly, the first con-
sideration is the inner ear
and Meniere's disease,
followed by but not in any
specific order: hematoma
from a fall, brain tumors,
poor vision, advanced age
and medication-induced
problems, Normal balance
requires three systems
working in harmony
- visual, somatosensory
and vestibular. When one
fails to function properly,
balance can be dramatically
affected.
Meniere's is an inner-
ear abnormality associated
with fluid volume changes.
It presents with acute diz-
ziness, the sensation of
pain or pressure in the
affected ear, tinnitus, roar-
ing sounds and fluctuations
in the ability to hear. If
this were your case, it is
likely only one ear would
be affected, a relatively
straightforward sign.
Tumors of the spine are
abnormal masses causing
minimal symptoms until
they grow large enough
to affect neurological
functioning. I must state
that not all tumors are
cancerous. Numerous
benign growths such as
chordomas, schwannomas
and acoustic neuromas
can occur, presenting with
loss of balance, dizziness,
double vision and more.
Medications such as
sedatives, antihistamines,
tranquilizers, antiseizure
drugs and those for hyper-
tension carry the potential
for causing dizziness and
balance problems. '
Caffeine, alcohol and
tobacco products can also
be contributors.
And, at long last, make
an appointment with a
new otolaryngologist and
neurologist to help you
get to the bottom of the
issue. You always have
the right to return to your


team of physicians, but
a second opinion won't
hurt. And you deserve
to function normally
after what you have been
through.

Report urges FDA to force salt cut back


By LAURAN NEERGAARD
AP Medical Writer
WASHINGTON.

is hidden in
Americans'
food, and
regulators plan
to work with manufactur-
ers to cut back - but the
government isn't ready to
go along with a major new
recommendation that it
order a decrease.
"We believe we can
achieve some sub-
stantial voluntary
reductions," Food and
Drug Administration
Commissioner Dr.
Margaret Hamburg told
The Associated Press on
Tuesday. "We are shaping
a strategy, and that strat-
egy involves working in
partnership."
Don't expect soups, pizzas
and breakfast cereals - yes,
they contain added sodium,
too - to taste different any
time soon. The FDA's plans


are still being formulated,
but the idea is for gradual
change so consumer taste
buds can adjust, as well as
industry recipes and produc-
tion methods.
Americans eat about 1
1/2 teaspoons of salt daily,
more than double what
they need for good health
and enough to increase
the risk of high blood pres-
sure, strokes and other
problems. Most of that
sodium doesn't come from
the table salt shaker; it's
hidden inside common
processed foods and res-
taurant meals.
On Tuesday, the presti-
gious Institute of Medicine
said the food industry has
made little progress in vol-
untarily reducing sodium.
The advisers urged the
FDA to set maximum
sodium levels for differ-
ent foods in a stepwise
rollback, so that eventu-
ally average consumption
would drop by about half a
teaspoon.


Study: Brain games don't

increase intelligence


By MARIA CHENG
AP Medical Writer
LONDON - People
playing computer games
to train their brains might
as well be playing Super
Mario, new research sug-
gests.
In a six-week study,
experts found people
who played online games
designed to improve their
cognitive skills didn't get
any smarter.
Researchers recruited
participants from viewers
of the BBC's science show
"Bang Goes the Theory."
More than 8,600 people
aged 18 to 60 were asked
to play online brain games
designed by the research-
ers to improve their mem-
ory, reasoning and other
skills for at least 10 minutes
a day, three times a week.
They were compared to
more than 2,700 people who
didn't play any brain games,
but spent a similar amount
of time surfing the Internet
and answering general
knowledge questions. All
participants were given a
sort of I.Q. test before and
after the experiment
Researchers said the


people who did the brain
training didn't do any better
on the test after six weeks
than people who had simply
been on the Internet. On
some sections of the test,
the people who surfed the
Net scored higher than
those playing the games.
The study was paid for
by the BBC and published
online Tuesday by the jour-
nal Nature.
"If you're (playing these
games) because they're
fun, that's absolutely fine,"
said Adrian Owen, assistant
director of the Cognition
and Brain Sciences unit at
Britain's Medical Research
Council, the study's lead
author. "But if you're
expecting (these games)
to improve your I.Q., our
data suggests this isn't
the case," he said during a
press briefing on Tuesday.
One maker of brain
games said the BBC study
did not apply to its prod-
ucts. Steve Aldrich, CEO
of Posit Science, said the
company's games, some
of which were funded in
part by the U.S. National
Institutes of Health, have
been proven to boost brain
power.

"This needs to be a
mandatory standard," said
Dr. Jane E. Henney of the
University of Cincinnati, a
former FDA commissioner
who headed the IOM's
study. Because salt is so
"ubiquitous, having one or
two in the industry make
strong attempts at this
doesn't give us that even
playing field over time. It's
not sustainable."
The IOM report doesn't
set a deadline, but says it
will take years to phase in
the changes for consumers
who are used to the taste
of a high-salt diet.
One in three U.S. adults
has high blood pressure,
which in turn is a leading
cause of heart attacks,
strokes and kidney failure.
And while being over-
weight and inactive raises
blood pressure, too much
salt is a big culprit as well.
The American Medical
Association has said
150,000 lives a year could
be saved by cutting in half


sodium levels in processed
and restaurant food.
"This is crying out
for a change that's long
overdue," added Sen.
Tom Harkin (D-Iowa)
who helped spur the IOM
report and plans hearings
on next steps.
Hamburg told the AP
that while her agency is
reviewing the recommen-
dations, it isn't currently
writing new regulations -
and that setting legal limits
on how much sodium can
be added to different foods
would take longer than col-
laborating with food mak-
ers on salt-cutting goals.
"We would be working
with them to establish
targets," she said. "We
absolutely see reducing salt
in the diets of Americans
as a very important public,
health priority.... You'll see
us sitting down with key
industry partners and start-
ing to'define a roadmap."
Government guidelines
set 2,300 milligrams of


sodium as the maximum
daily intake - the amount
above which health prob-
lems can appear. The IOM
says people need just 1,500
mg a day for good health,
less if they're over 50. Yet
average consumption is
more than 3,400 mg.
The food industry has
long argued that it didn't
have tasty ways to replace
sodium if it made deep
cuts. But brand-to-brand
differences in the same
foods suggest that's not so,
and some food giants are
leading the way in sodium
reduction.
ConAgra Foods Inc.
- makers of products
including Chef Boyardee
canned pasta, Healthy
Choice frozen dinners and
Hunt's tomato.sauces -
last fall, pledged a 20 per-
cent reduction in its food
lines by 2015. The Omaha,
Neb.-based company says
its cuts would eliminate a
stunning 10 million pounds
of salt from the U.S. diet


Doctor groups set new policy


By MARILYNN MARCHIONE
AP Medical Writer
No more letting indus-
try help pay for develop-
.ing medical guidelines.
Restrictions on consulting
deals. And no more pens
with drug company names
or other swag at confer-
ences.
These are part of a new
ethics code that dozens
of leading medical groups
announced Wednesday,
aimed at limiting the influ-
ence that drug and device
makers have over patient
care.
It's the most sweep-
ing move ever taken by
the Council of Medical
Specialty Societies to curb
conflict of interest - a
growing concern as pri-
vate industry bankrolls a


greater share of medical
research.
The council includes
32 medical societies with
650,000 members, from
neurologists and obstetri-
cians to family doctors and
pediatricians. They include
the American College of
Physicians, the American
College of Cardiology and
the American Society of
Clinical Oncology, the larg-
est group of cancer special-
ists in the world.
"We take very seriously
the trust that is placed
in us by physicians and
patients to be authorita-
tive, independent voices in
cancer care," ASCO's chief,
Dr. Alien Lichter, said in a
statement. He led the panel
that developed the code.
One of its most contro-
versial rules: requiring top


leaders of any medical soci-
ety and top editors of its
journals to have no consult-
ing deals or financial ties to
industry.
"When a physician
stands up to represent
medicine and his or her
specialty, there shouldn't
be any confusion as to who
they're speaking for," said
Dr. Norman Kahn, the
council's chief executive
and a former rural medi-
cine doctor from California.
Some requirements of
the code include:
* Publicly posting any
industry support the group
receives, such as money
for continuing education
sessions.
* Disclosing any finan-
cial ties that leaders and
board members have with
companies.

Scott builds
bridges to the
past and future.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Much
like the
running
of a cross
country
race, Columbia High's
Brandon Scott is coming
full circle by signing a
scholarship with Webber
SInternational University on
Wednesday.
Scott will run cross
country and track at
Webber.
"It was a dream and a
goal," Scott said. "I had to
have a scholarship to go
to college, and it is always
nice to reach a goal. I
learned that through
running."
Scott ran for four years
at Columbia under coach
Robert Cooper. He was
signed to Webber by head
cross country and track
coach Terrell Griffin, a
2002 graduate of CHS who
was a teammate of Cooper.
Griffin attended Webber,
while Cooper ran at Florida
State.
"Since I've been there
I have always wanted to
come back home and get
somebody from my high
school," Griffin said., "It
is special to come back to
your alma mater and give
somebody a chance that I
was given."
Cooper saw potential in
Scott as a freshman and
Webber became interested
in his junior year.
"I know Terrell and felt
comfortable with Brandon
running there," Cooper
said. "I think he will
succeed at the next level
and accomplish his goals
there."
Griffin called Scott
a "mini-Coop" and that
resolve impressed the
"real" Coop.
"Brandon is.one of the
toughest people I have
ever met," Cooper said.
"It is an attribute he will
carry over to the next level
where he will have people
to push him. That will
make him even better."
Scott earned all-state
status in cross country
and is yet to write his final
track story. The Tigers
compete in the District*
3-4A at 11 a.m. today at

Westerfield, Scott, mom Melina Westerfield and brother Shayne Scott. Back row (from left) are Columbia High coach Robert
Cooper, Webber coach Terrell Griffin and Webber assistant coach Peter Ormsby.


Wolfson High. Last year,
Scott finished fifth in
region in the 1,600 and
3.200 meters, missing state
in both by one spot.
"I plan to go to state this
year and leave my senior
year with a bang," Scott
said. "I want to get a medal
(top 8) in both. I thank
Coach Cooper for pushing
me."
Griffin said Scott will
predominately run cross
country, and using him in
track "depends on what
route we will take."
Griffin has no doubt
Scott will succeed in the
main goal at college.
"Brandon excels in the
classroom and that is very
important," Griffin said.
"It is all about a degree
- cross country is just
there to help guide him.
It will keep him motivated
to achieve the goals he is
trying to achieve."
Scott has another
support group, outside of
his coaches.
"My family and friends
have helped my career
move along," Scott said.
"I thank my family for all
their motivation and my
friends have always asked
how I am doing. I
wanted to do good to make
them proud, along with
myself."

Rossin lifts Tigers
to 6-4 win'at Fort
White High.

FORT WHITE - An
unlikely candidate stepped"
forward and became the dif-
ference in a county collision
pitting Columbia High and
Fort White High together
on the baseball diamond.
The Tigers got the
better end of this one as
Jamison Rossin's three-run
homer provided the differ-
ence against the Indians.
Columbia won 6-4 in Fort


White in the Wednesday
night affair.
The two teams each lit up
the scoreboard in the first
inning as six runs crossed
the plate. Columbia started
things out in the top half
with three runs. Blake King
brought in Cameron Sweat,
who had reached on a walk,
with a double for the first
run of the game.
Columbia (19-5, 7-1)
added two more in the
inning, starting with Zach
Espenships' RBI to bring in
King. The final run for the
Tigers came off a sacrifice
fly from Mikey Kirkman to

Woods to


playTPC


Associated Press

PONTE VEDRA BEACH
- Tiger Woods added
two more tournaments
Wednesday to a schedule
that is not much different
from -previous years except
for the timing.
Woods entered The
Players Championship and
the AT&T National, which
benefits his foundation.
It was the second straight
week that Woods made an
early commitment to a PGA
Tour event, allowing for
more time to promote his
appearance. For years, the
world's No. 1 player wait-
ed until the last few days
before signing up.
Last week, Woods beat
the deadline by eight days
for entering the Quail
Hollow Championship,
which starts April 29. He
signed up for The Players
Championship, which starts
May 6, nine days ahead of
the deadline.
Woods no longer is the host
of the AT&T National, which
will be held over the Fourth of
July weekend at Aronomink
outside Philadelphia It had
been played the last three
years atoutside ofWashington
at Congressional, which
will host the U.S. Open next
year.

Fort White battled
back in the bottom half
of the inning to put Justin
Kortessis and Levi Hatcher
on the bases. Jake Philman
came in to pinch run for
Kortessis, who started the
game as pitcher for the
Indians. The game was tied
off a three-run shot from
.Jonathan Dupree. It would
stay that way through three
innings.
Kellan Bailey started the
game for the Tigers, and
settled down after allow-
ing three runs in the first
to throw into the seventh
inning. He struck out five
batters, including the side
in the bottom of the fifth,
before giving way to Jacob
Tillotson to close down the
show. Bailey allowed five
hits, and all four runs were
credited to him.
Columbia took the lead
for good in the top of the
fourth inning when Rossin
connected on a three-
run homer to bring in
Kirkman and Brandon
Scott, It forced a pitch-
ing change for the
Indians.
"If felt great," Rossin
said of the home run. "One
of my old coaches told me
to keep my head on it and
have fun. It brought back
memories and I wouldn't
trade the experience."
Levi Hatcher took over
in the middle of the fourth
inning for the Indians and
threw the final 3% innings
without giving up a run. He

DEAR ABBY


Cleaning their plates could

be hazardous to kids' health


DEAR ABBY: "Mil-
waukee Grandma" (Feb.
16) was "appalled to see
the number of adults who
forced their children to eat"
in restaurants. "Grandma"
is absolutely right. Chil-
dren will eat when hungry
and stop when they have
had enough. The old saying
"Clean your plate" is con-
tributing to the obesity epi-
demic. Children are born
with the ability to self-regu-
late their food intake. No-
tice how many babies move
their heads away from the
bottle or breast when they
are full.
Eating out is expen-
sive, and restaurants tend
to serve portions that are
larger than necessary for
a child's small stomach. In-
stead of forcing the child to
finish, parents should take
half the dinner home for a
later time.
The obesity epidemic
is based on many factors,
including excessive meal
portions, decreased physi-
cal activity, abundance of
junk food, and lack of avail-
able and affordable healthy
foods in some areas of the
country - to name a few.
Parents can make a dif-
ference by involving their
children in the shopping for
and preparation of meals,
eating as a family with the
TV shut off and making ac-

tivity fun and a part of the
everyday routine. -. DI-
ETITIAN IN GARDNER,
MASS.
DEAR DIETITIAN:
Thank you for enlightening
me regarding the obesity
epidemic. A number of oth-
er readers weighed in on
the topic with interesting
insights. Read on:
DEAR ABBY: I was
raised by parents. who,
forced me to "clean my
plate or else." They were
the ones who fixed my plate
or decided what to order us
kids in restaurants. Eating
became a negative experi-
ence as I was growing up.
It wasn't until I got
counseling prior to my gas-
tric bypass surgery that I
learned to stop eating when
I was full instead of feeling
guilty unless I cleaned my
plate. In counseling, I was
told it was OK to leave food
on my plate - but by then I
weighed 400 pounds.
It's better to teach chil-
dren to eat at mealtime,.be
responsible when it comes


to snacking and "listen to
your body" when it says,
"I'm full." - HAPPY WITH
MY WEIGHT NOW
DEAR ABBY: As a fanr
ily and consumer sciences
educator, one of the cours-
es I teach in child develop-
ment is "division of respon-
sibility." This means it's the
parents' responsibility to
offer nutritious food choic-
es to their children, and the
children's responsibility to
decide how much to eat.
By forcing children to
"clean their plate," we are
overriding the natural pro-
gramming they are born
with that tells them when
they are full and to stop
eating. When we teach chil-
dren to eat past natural sa-
tiation, obesity is the natu-
ral consequence. - LAURA
IN MOSCOW, IDAHO
DEAR ABBY: We have
one child with severe food
allergies and two others
who have ADD and emo-
tional issues. Their medi-
cations decrease their ap-
petites, which makes it
difficult for them to gain
weight and grow. We may
be the parents "Milwaukee
Grandma" is referring to as
we urge our children to eat
more.

Brooks

named

NBA

coach of

the year

By JEFF LATZKE
Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY -
Back when the Thunder
were 3-29 last season, the
'-nbtion of the playoffs com-
rtg to Oklahoma City any
time soon was unimagina-
ble.
But it was that same mis-
erable stretch that made
general manager Sam
.Presti confident that coach
Scott Brooks was the right
man to lead his team into
the future.
While Oklahoma City
:struggled to the worst
:start in the NBA, Presti
Swas impressed by the way
Brooks stayed the course
and never tried to force
immediate changes in hopes
.of making the Thunder
better. He has now taken
:the youngest roster in the
League and turned the team
into a 50-game winner and a
playoff team just one season
after the horrendous start.
For that best-in-the NBA
:turnaround, Brooks was
recognized Wednesday
as the NBA's coach of the
year. He received 71 of 123
first-place votes and 480
:points to finish ahead of
Milwaukee's Scott Skiles
(26 first-place votes, 313
points) and Portland's Nate
McMillan (9, 107).
"He's someone that I think
is incredibly consistent as
a person. He is unaffected
through adversities and
also through successes, and
I think that's an important
quality we want to have as we
move forward," Presti said.
Even as he was receiving
a statue of Red Auerbach,
Brooks faced another
daunting turnaround: an 0-
2 deficit in the Thunder's
best-of-seven series against
the defending champion
Los Angeles Lakers, led by
Kobe Bryant and coach Phil
Jackson.
Game 3 is Thursday night
,in Oklahoma City.
' This is the first-time
'playoff experience for a
lot of us, including myself,
.and you're playing against
one of the best coaches of
all sports, one of the best
players ever and a team
.that has 1,000 (games of)
:playoff experience to ours,"
'Brooks said. "But you learn
from playing against the
S-best players and the best
teams, and we're going to
keep fighting and figuring
.out ways to beat them."
While the Thunder didn't
immediately start winning
after Brooks took over for
the fired P.J. Carlesimo,
there were signs of prog-
ress. His decision to move
"Kevin Durant. froin shoot-
ing guard to small forward
increased his production,
and the addition of Thabo
Sefolosha and Nenad Krstic
plus defensive-minded assis-
tant Ron Adams started to
*pay dividends, too.
"We were improved once
he took over as the coach.
We still lost some games
that were tough but we
wereplearning and we were
getting better each day in
practice," said Durant, who
developed into the NBA's
youngest scoring champion
this season.
"I knew if we continued
to do that and not come in
and just say, 'Our season's
done. Ain't no need to prac-
tice. Ain't no need to work


hard.' We still came in and
worked every day, and he
made sure he brought it
every day as a coach."
Brooks can sound like a
broken record at times, harp-
ing on Oklahoma City's need
to constantly improve every
day, but it's exactly the tune
that Presti wants to hear. It's
why he gave Brooks a multi-
year contract at the end of
last season even though the
Thunder had only gone 2247
under his leadership.


Roethlisberger banned six games


By BARRY WILNER
Associated Press

NEWYORK-Pittsburgh
Steelers quarterback Ben
Roethlisberger was sus-
pended for six games with-
out pay Wednesday for vio-
lating the NFL's personal
conduct policy and ordered
to undergo behavioral eval-
uation.


Commissioner Roger
Goodell made the announce-
ment a week after prosecu-
tors decided not to charge
Roethlisberger after a 20-
year-old college student
accused him of sexually
assaulting her in a Georgia
nightclub in March.
Goodell said the league's
conduct policy gave him the

COLUMBIA MOTORSPORTS-PARK


Keller tops Sportsman


By SCOTT McALLISTER
Special to the Reporter

ELLISVILLE - The
Sportsman A-Main was the
highlight of the evening
on Saturday at Columbia
Motorsports Park with a
35-lap feature.
There was a strong field
including several teams
making their first appear-
ance in the 2010 season.
Patience was the key
for the Chevy of Wesley
Keller. The "Show Stopper"
methodically maneuvered
his way through the field
and held off Charles Seroki.
Keller congratulated his
crew for their effort and
dedication in Victory Lane.
Seroki made his return to
CMP with an awesome per-
formance, as he powered
his way through the field
and battled for the lead all
night. He drove Keller hard
but clean, and in the end
settled for a solid second
place-finish.
Finishing third was the
No. 32 Chevy of Shelton,
Bowers from Trenton.
Bowers is quickly moving
up the points ladder.
Brian Hull, in his No. 16
Chevy out of Lake City, was
competitive all night and
finished fourth.
Len Stapleton, in his
No. 20 Chevy, started deep
in the pack, but came on
strong for a tough-fought
fifth-place run.
Matt Walker, in the 1M
Chevrolet, led the initial
laps and looked strong,
but would drop back late to
finish sixth.
In the V-8 Bomber
Division, Stan Lang from
Pearson, Ga., picked up
his second victory in as
many weeks. Andy Nichols
started on the pole and
ran strong throughout to
hang on to second. Derek
Davis,. Mark Chinell and
Eric Hoffman rounded out
the top 5.
The Pure Stock field was
light and points leader Tim
Alldredge in his Chevy
Monte Carlo had no prob-
lems holding off Don Cruce
in the No. 96 Chevy Camaro
and No. 7 Wayre Manning.
The Hornet Division
picked up the pace and, by
the end, points leader Bert
Daugherty had the crowd
on their feet turning certain
disaster into the "racing"
move of the night
Daugherty drove deep
into turn three, almost tag-
ging the outside retaining
wall. He overcorrected
and shot down the track
toward the inside wall in
what is referred to as a
"tank slapper." He was able
to hang on in heavy traffic
and exited turn two in the
lead and went on to the
win.
Both Donald Davis- and
Mark Copeland would

Swapping drivers presents challenges and opportunities


The full details of Kasey Kahne's move to
Hendrick Motorsports have yet to be
revealed, but there's a consensus in
NASCAR circles about how things will work
out in the end.
Dale Earnhardt Jr., one of the four driv-
ers now running for Hendrick in the Cup
Series, summed up the feelings of many in
his comments to reporters at Texas Motor
Speedway last week.
"I'm sure whatever Rick [HendrickJ
chooses to d' will be a smart way to take
care of it," Earnhardt said.
The complications come because
Hendrick hired Kahne, now driving the No.
9 Ford at Richard Petty Motorsports, to take
over his No. 5 car beginning with the 2012
season. But Mz .A Martin, who is under con-
tract to drive the car through next season,
is doing a very good job behind-the wheel.
That puts Martin in an awkward spot as,
the way the situation looks now, he'll be a
lame duck in the No. 5 next year, while
Kahne likely will be fanned out to a
Hendrick-affiliated team, as many have
speculated.
Hendrick said on a teleconference last
week that it's his responsibility to field a car
for Kahne next year.
The scenario, on the surface, looks much
like the situation back in 2003-04, when
Kahne first came on the Cup scene to take
over the No. 9, driven at that time by anoth-
er veteran, Bill Elliott. Looking back, it
seems that the driver swap was made a lit-
tle too soon as far as Elliott was concerned.
In his last seven races in the 9 car,


Elliott, who was 47 at the time, had an
average finish of 4.56, including a win at
Rockingham. And in his final run in the No.
9, he was less than a lap away from win-
ning at Homestead in th& 2003 season
finale when a tire went flat.
Like Elliott back then, Martin today, at
51, is still plenty capable of delivering wins
and competing for championships, so the
idea of him retiring after next season is far-
fetched.
He said so himself in his weekly inter-
view with reporters at Texas.
"I'm not going to retire," he said. "I'm
going to race in 2012. And so don't even talk
about it. I'm racing in 2012."
But he didn't say where, and he may not
know where.
"There will be an opportunity for me I'm
sure, that will be exciting-and fun and that
I can help people," he said. "I feel like I've


Despite a good season driving the No.5 b ord ior Ricr,.rd
Petty Motorsports, Mark Martin will be succeeded by
driver Kasey Kahne in 2012. (NASCAR photo)


done that. I feel like I did that in the No. 01
at DEI [after he left Roush Racing and
before he joined Hendrick], and I feel like
I've helped the No. 5 team realize that they
can win races and contend for a champi-
onship.
"And so I'll find another opportunity
that's exciting to me, and I don't want to
commit to that now. I want to make sure
that Hendrick is set, ahd they are set. It's
such an incredibly perfect scenario."
One possibility might be that he would
own his own team, possibly with an affilia-
tion with Hendrick, as his fellow driver
Tony Stewart did last year.
"For the first time ever, I would consider
an opportunity like Tony Stewart had,"
Martin said. "I don't want to be an owner,
but if I can be an owner like Tony Stewart
maybe I want it."
Often in NASCAR, as was the case when
Kurt Busch went from Roush to Penske
Raping, the swap was made sooner than
expected thanks to some behind-the-scenes
dealing. But Martin's comments indicate
he'll still be with his current team next
year.
"I feel so fortunate to have a whole year
and a half yet in front of me to work with
[crew chief] Alan [Gustafson] and this
team," he said. "I'm so grateful for the
opportunity. It's been the gift of my career
to realize this and to be able to do this and
be successful.
"It's also exciting to do new things, and I
love and embrace the excitement of 2012
and whatever that may bring."


Race worth the wait for Hamlin
Monday's rain-delayed Samsung Mobile 500 at
Texas Motor Speedway showed that Jimmie
Johnson can expect some strong competition
from his Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff
Gordon and from Denny Hamlin, who won the
500 while recovering from surgery to his left
knee just 19 days earlier.
Gordon, as he has several times this season,
had the fastest car, leading a race-high 124 laps.
But he was eliminated in a 10-car crash just 17
laps from the finish. And before then, he went
door-to-door with Johnson on several occasions,
racing so hard that both parties expressed disap-
pointment with the other afterward.
For Hamlin, the Texas win was his second in
the past three races, the first coming on another
Monday, at MartinsvilleSpeedway, two days
before his surgery.
After limping noticeably in Victory Lane at
' Texas, Hamlin restated his reasoning for the tim-
ing of his surgery. Earlier this year he said he
would put it off until the end of the season.
"I did it for the Chase, for the championship,
� for the long run," he said. "I knew once I came
back I'd be stronger."
While the Texas results showed the strength of
Hamlin and Gordon, they also showed that
Johnson is as strong as ever. After having to
make an unscheduled pit stop to replace a tire
likely damaged in contact with Gordon, he
stormed back and was closing in on Hamlin as
the checkered flag fell.
Harvick honors W.Va. victims
As is often the case in NASCAR, a driver and
team have.used their positions in the sport to
honor a deserving cause.
For the Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway,
the No. 29 Chevrolet driven by Kevin Harvick
carried a special decal honoring the 29 coal min-
ers who died in the April 5 mine explosion in
West Virginia.
The Upper Big Branch mine explosion in
Montcoal, W Va., was the worst U.S. mining dis-
aster since 1984.
"'Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the
families and friends of those who lost their lives
in this fragic event," team owner Richard
Childress said in a statement. "Coal miners and
their families are part of the backbone of
American society, so all of us at RCR wanted to
show our respect for them for their loss."
The decal was placed on the lower front quar-
ter-panel, in front of the rear tires.
"We have a tremendous fan following in West
Virginia, and we were very saddened to hear the
news," Harvick added.
'Finish race, but finish good'
Last year, Juan Pablo Montoya and his crew
chief Brian Pattie made no secret of the fact
that their main goal in the first 26 races was to
simply finish well enough to make sure they
made the cut for the season-ending, 10-race
Chase for the Sprint Cup. Once they did that,
they turned up the heat and challenged for the
points lead in the early races of the Chase only
to falter late and drop to eighth in the final
standings.
This year, they appear to have faster cars
and to be more aggressive in races, but they
soon found themselves in a position where they
need to think about points. Montoya was 21st in
the standings heading into Monday's rain-
delayed race at Texas Motor Speedway.
"We don't need top 12s, we need top fives to
be able to come back to where we need to be,"
Montoya said."... Our goal is we've got to finish
the race but we've got to finish good. We're
behind on points from where we need to be,. but
we've got a car capable of the win."
