Superintendent Mike

Millikin's daughter, Mary
Millikin, as a student care
attendant at Richardson
Middle School.
At the board's regular
meeting Tuesday, it unani-

Mary Millikin's annu-
al contract, among other
noninstructional positions'
contracts, was approved
unanimously by the board
at its May 10 meeting. At a
general funds budget work-

ing that meeting, the board
announced that it was
cutting less than 10 jobs
- including student care
attendant' positions for
the upcoming school year
as one way of dealing with
a state-imposed deficit of

more than $8 million.
At the Tuesday meet-
ing, Hunter questioned the
decision and the particular
hiring process.
He first asked for clarifi-
cation on the May 10 meet-
ing's minutes during a dis-
cussion regarding the mat-
ter. Minutes approval was
also unanimously tabled
then by the board until its
next meeting. Hunter said
during the previous discus-

to believe that new hires
would only be made if they
were critical.
"This is not an essential,
critical position," Hunter
"It was not a critical hire,
but we were led to believe
so," he said.

this saga, ,the owners
of Skunkie Acres and
administrators from the

The accord called for the

agreement not to reopen
that part of its business.

taking in cats arid dogs
anyway," said Bernie
Haake, manager and co-
owner of Skunkie Acres.

victory for us. They had

Alley shedding pounds on 'Dancing'

W hen Kirstie Alley
performs on the
"Dancing With the
Stars" season finale,
she'll do it in a much
smaller dress than the one she wore
on the season premiere.
The costume Alley wore for her
"Dancing" debut had to be taken' in
38 inches for her to wear it again
Tuesday for the show's closing
episode. Alley will reprise her open-
ing-night dance, the cha-cha, in her
original costume.
The 60-year-old actress has been
noticeably shrinking week after
week, but she was coy when asked
after performing in a skin-tight
bodysuit Monday how much weight
she has lost during her two and a
half months'on the show.
'There will be some reveal of that
at some point, but I really didn't
care," she said. "As long as I kept
changing and changing and chang-
ing, I really didn't care. It was like,
keep whittling, whittling, whittling.
And the other thing that's really
more significant to me I mean, I
love the whittling, I like being skinny
I'm really strong and-really agile
and it gave me a new life."

with the process by which
she was hired when other
employees' jobs were cut.
The process sets a "bad
example" for the school
system and the commu-

nity, he said.
"I have no issue with the
employee," Hunter said,
"but I just don't think this
passes the test."
"This does not smell
good," he said.

Mike Millikin proposed
pulling his daughter's name
from the noninstructional
reappointment list for the
next school year, the list
that was tabled for the
board's upcoming meeting.

"He gives back as much

The organization has
taught Barwick to do a good
turn daily and go out of his
way to help someone else,
Bill Phillips said.

thinking about anybody but
ourselves," he said.
The Guinness record-
setting event for Barwick's
Eagle Scout project begins
at 8 a.m. Sept 24 and
ends at 8 a.m. Sept 25

Donations of nonperish-

able items or money to help
with the project are request-

said. Any money donated
will be used to purchase
food items locally to help
boost the economy.
Barwick plans to partner
with Catholic Charities and
the Food Bank of Suwannee

to the counties it serves:

SKUNKIE: Dogs, cats surrendered

position the animals were
not being properly cared
Marques said the legal
agreement, drawn up by
the Haakes' attorney,
would not be signed until
the city's attorney had
approved it. However, he
foresaw no problem.
"I'm ready for the
whole thing to be put to
rest," Marques said.
On April 7, in what
has sometimes been
a volatile situation, the
Humane Society/Lake
City Animal Control,
by court order, took 12
dogs from Skunkie Acres
after several neighbors
signed complaints about
constant barking. In what
the Haakes said was a
miscommunication, they
had missed their court
hearing, prompting the
order to take the dogs to
be issued.
On April 21, that court
order was overturned and
the dogs were returned to
Skunkie Acres. Tuesday

was established as the
new court date.
Marques estimated 17
dogs, "give or take," and.
an undetermined number
of cats should be deliv-
ered to the ,Shelter. The
Haakes will be allowed
to keep one or two of the
dogs and cats as pets.
Any violation of the
agreement by Skunkie
Acres could cause the
citations to be reinstat-
It seems unlikely the
refuge for dogs and cats
will return at Skunkie
Acres. According to
Marques, the Columbia
County's Building and
Zoning Department's

Regulation administra-
tor, Brian Kepner, last
Thursday issued a viola-
tion to a special excep-
tion granted to Skunkie

keep exotic animals and
horses, not dogs and

cats. With the numerous
protests filed by neigh-
bors, it was unlikely a

dogs and cats would have
been forthcoming.
Haake insisted he want-
ed no further problems..
"It'll stay that way," he
said. "There are no other-
issues I'm aware of.
"I'd really like to get
along with these guys."
The rapid influx of cats
and dogs from Skunkie
Acres to thke City
Animal Shelter, Marques
said, would push them to
their limit.
S"It's going to be some-
what of a hardship for
our shelter, taking in that
many animals," he said.

boring agencies may be
called on to help. Anyone

tance or adopt a dog or

wreck. Workers from the
Florida Department of
Transportation also helped
direct traffic at the crash.
According to Florida
Highway Patrol reports, the
farm workers were heading
to Quincy from Immokalee
when the wreck occurred.
Daniel Sanon, 56, of
Immokalee, was driving
the 1994 Dodge Ram van
as it was traveling west
when its left rear tire expe-
rienced a "catastrophic"
tread separation and sub-
sequent blowout.
As a result of the blow-
out, Sanon lost control of
the van and according to
evidence and witness pas-
senger statements, the van
began to swerve from right
to left numerous times,
then overturned to its left
side along the roadway's
northern shoulder, tossing
out seven of the.vehicle's 12
occupants and causing fatal
injuries to three people.
"At this point we have
some of the injured peo-
ple taken to at least three,
and possibly four, hospi-
tals," Riordan said, noting
the injured passengers
were taken to hospitals in
Live Oak, Lake City and
Two occupants were
treated at local hospitals
and were later released with
only minor injuries, while
the remaining seven occu-
pants were taken to Shands
at the University of Florida,
Lake City Medical Center
and Shands LakeShore
Regional Medical Center,
where they remain in seri-
ous condition.
Sanon suffered minor
injuries in the crash and was
taken to Shands LakeShore

AN -I-





(n Wednesday, the
final episode of
Oprah Winfrey's
long-running TV
talk show will air.
In the 25 years since the show
has been nationally syndicated,
Winfrey has made herself a
singular force in television and
the popular culture. In that
period, she has topped the day-
time ratings as talk show host,
earned an Oscar nomination for
her acting, become a producer,
launched her own magazine,
catapulted the book sales of any
author that she favors with an
Oprah's Book Club selection.
Not tht she's retiring to her
Montecito estate. She is turning
her attention to her 5-month-old
cable network, OWN, an ambi-
tious venture that has had a
rocky start
Winfrey is an extraordinary
self-creation who helped forge
a sea of change in the way the
culture looks at black women in
particular and black people in
Of course, she is only one
small piece of the huge cultural
shift in attitudes about race that
the U.S. has been undergoing for
more than half a century.'Still,
the crossover embrace of her
show has helped make it utterly
normal for a mainstream audi-
ence to accept black profession-
als, not just performers.
And she did it in the prosaic,
often middlebrow realm of the
daytime talk show. She proved
canny at laying bare the prob-
lems of life that beset us all and
became a kind of life coach
extraordinaire. Never resorting
to clownish antics, she carried
herself with a sophisticated aura
but also projected empathy. Most
famously, she continually shared
her struggles with the battle
that so many Americans seem
obsessed with weight
Without Oprah, the landscape
of daytime broadcast TV is over-
whelmingly white. And surpris-
ingly, most of the on-air hosts and
main personalities on Oprah's
cable network are white as well.
Oprah herself is expected to have
some kind of on-air presence, but
more diversity would be even bet-
ter. Surely Oprah, of all people,
should be able to make that hap-

The balm of friendship

S t's almost midnight,
and I am sitting on top
of an air conditioner
in a motel room in
Kingman, Ariz. Outside,
it is slightly hotter than the
hinges on the gates of hell.
Earlier today, somewhere
in, the desert by Barstow or
maybe Needles, I got lost
- possibly because I was a bit
distracted thinking about rites
of passage.
I had spent the whole week-
end dealing with things I usu-
ally avoid: Doing laundry, pay-
ing bills, packing my car and
saying goodbye. I wasn't plan-
ning to leave forever, just a
few months, give or take. But
a few months is a long time to
leave the people you love.
When I told them that I
wanted to go back to the
mountains where I grew
up, rent a cabin on a lake
and spend some time writ-
ing, much to my surprise,
they understood. My grown
children, my closest friends,
the man I share my life with
- they all said that I should
do what I want
Imagine: A woman my age,
free to do what she wants as
soon as she figures out what
she wants and how to do it
"Go for it," they all said. Did
I mention they are wonder-
ful people? They know why
I'm taking this trip. What
they don't understand is why,
instead of flying, I've decided
to drive 3,500 miles, give or
take, depending on how many
wrong turns I make.
I thought a road trip sound-

Sharon Randall
ed like fun. That was yester-
day, before I left home. Today,
after I missed a turn and
drove 30 miles out of my way,
I decided it might be more fun
to sell my car and take a bus
back to California.
Some days I'm not good at
believing in myself. This is
one of those days. I'm lucky
to have people who believe in
me.,Too bad they can't help
me drive.
But back to the rites of pas-
Sunday morning, I packed
up my car (it's amazing what
you can take if it doesn't
need to fit into an overhead
bin) and hit the road. Before
leaving town, I'stopped to
speak at a graduation cer-
emony for the young women
of Notre Dame High School
in Salinas, Calif.
I told them what I have
been learning: Life is short,
so do what you want, to the
glory of God and the bet-
terment of mankind. Then I
shook their hands, returned
their hugs and watched them
totter across the stage on 9-
inch heels. Somehow, I felt
as proud as if they were my
own. The girls, not the heels.

After the ceremony, I drove
100 miles south to attend a
retirement bash for a woman
who has been my friend even
longer than she has been a
teacher. The "slumber" party
drew a crowd of women, old
friends, some I'd not seen for
years. We spent the evening
reminiscing, then piled into
beds to lie awake listening to
each other snore.
This morning, saying
our goodbyes, we got word
that an elderly friend had
died over the weekend. She
would've loved to be with us
at that party. She wouldn't
have cared who snored. We
stood there together in the
parking lot, remembering
our friend, and blinking back
tears. Then they waved me
off on my big adventure
- Thelma and Louise" with-
out Louise.
Hours later, I spotted on a
dry, barren hillside a patch of
brilliant green a place that
had been watered and was
growing. That's it, I thought
That's how it works. We cel-
ebrate together the passages
of our lives the births and
deaths, the weddings and
graduations, the retirements
and big adventures. We water
each other's souls with the
balm of friendship to keep us
green and alive. It won't stop
you from making wrong turns.
But it can help you feel a little
less lost.

In a season of violent weather,

.prepare, protect and prevent

While the rest of
the world may
have escaped
the predicted
Rapture over
the weekend, residents of
Joplin, Mo., endured a disaster
of seemingly apocalyptic pro-
portions. The single deadliest
US tornado since 1953 tore
through the city on Sunday,
killing at least 89 people. The
twister, nearly 6 miles long and
more than a half-mile wide,
according to one witfiess,
simply "cut the city in half,"
destroying hospitals, schools,
and churches.
The devastation by this one
tornado becomes another data
point in this strange season
of violent weather heavy
rains, deep snowfalls, monster
flooding along the Mississippi
River, and now the damage
in Joplin. Equally disturbing,
but less well-publicized, are
other unusual weather patterns
such as the flooding in New
York and New Jersey, where

the Passaic River rose above
flood levels, and the drought
in the Southwest that costs
Texas over $1 million a day to
battle wildfires. Throughout the
world, nations such as Brazil,
Australia, and Pakistan are also
contending with unforgiving
The extreme weather carries
dramatic consequences for the
economy, as prices of commodi-
ties from gasoline to food sup-
plies are reaching new highs.
River traffic in the Mississippi,
the lifeline of a complex barge
system delivering commodi-
ties such as coal to utilities, is
delayed because navigation
markers are submerged.
Early preparation and plan-
ning has helped save lives.
Technology and engineering
have made weather predictions
more reliable. A mature alert
system notified residents of
Joplin of an impending danger.
It is also inspiring to hear res-
idents express a determination
to rebuild. But that can-do spirit

rarely translates into political
action. In policy debates about
environmental issues, evidence
of extreme weather is often
dismissed as fleeting anecdotes.
But it is hard to ignore the
cumulative impact of science,
technology, and experience.
Last week, an expert panel
assigned by Congress in 2008
to recommend ways to deal
with climate change provided a
sobering analysis of what is at
stake: Every ton of greenhouse
gases entering the atmosphere
not only drives up the earth's
temperature, causing potentially
disruptive weather events, but
raises the cost of taking action
later on.
Call it global warming, global
weirding, or just a really freaky
weather year. If we don't begin
to address the underlying
causes of all this killer weather,
2011 may just be the begin-
ning of a very dangerous new

lies about a Republican
Medicare reform plan,
sinking so low in one instance, so:
pathetically, immorally, disgust-
ingly low, as to try to convince
the nation through an ad that the,
reform will murder the' elderly.
It's not just the ad by an outfit
called The Agenda Project thafs
-threatening rescue from our spend-
ing and debt plight although there
is surely a special place in Hell for
such nasty propaganda.
The ad shows someone look- *.
ing vaguely like Rep. Paul Ryan,
R-Wisc., push an old woman to
the edge of a cliff in a wheelchair,"
dumping the protesting, helpless .
soul to her certain death when
they get there. Along the way, we
are told how half the 46 million
Medicare recipients make no more
than $28,000 a year. It is made to
seem they will have to fend for
themselves if the Republican plan',
Without the video vividness, any':
number of Democrats (along with
Republican Newt Gingrich) have
spread similarly dire depictions
even though the plan drawn up
by Ryan and passed by the House
would not go into full effect for 10
years and would not apply to any-
one currently on Medicare. The
government would still provide ...
funds for health insurance and
would reward the well off less than':
those with lower incomes, which "
is something you would think the"'
soak-the-rich left would applaud.
Given the known procliv-
ity of Democrats\ to demonize
entitlement sanity and the fact
that Americans do cling to these
programs like lifesavers in a sea
storm, it took extraordinary cour-
age for Ryan and the GOP to
address this issue honestly in the
first place. The concept, by the way,
is not a far-right invention Alice,
Rivlin, appointed to top positions by
Lyndon Johnson, Bill Clinton and
Barack Obama, endorses it
That's not to say she likes the
particulars or that the concept
or the particulars should not
be debated. Some Republicans
besides Gingrich don't like the
plan, and I agree with the case for
increased vouchers for the least
affluent and still more means test-
ing. Consider economic writer
Robert Samuelson's observations
that the number of poor elderly
has been shrinking, the number
of high-income elderly rising and
that married-couple households
over 65 years of age have a median
net worth of $385,000, a lot more
than most of those funding their
The thing is, this plan does
eventually begin cutting Medicare
spending in a serious way, as we
absolutely must do for the sake
of both Medicare and the nation.
No one questions that revenues
are going to fall trillions of dollars
short of promises, and you can't fix
it with federal taxes. As an online
Cato Institute piece observes, the
Congressional Budget Office says
most of these taxes would have to
be doubled over the next 40 years
to foot the bill, reducing national
income by a fifth. Want a job, any-
The trouble with most congres-
sional opponents is that they have
no answer of their own, prefer-
ring reelection to serving their
country, and Medicare's chief
actuary has cast doubt on whether
Obamacare's Medicare tinkering ,
will do the trick, either.

Casey Anthony defense:

Caylee drowned in pool

Associated Press

ORLANDO Prosecutors
and a defense attorney for a
Florida mother charged in the
death of her 2-year-old daugh-
ter each presented new, vastly
different theories of how the
little girl died as the trial for
Casey Anthony began Tuesday.
For the first time, prosecu-
tors said Caylee Anthony died
from three pieces of duct tape
being placed over her mouth
and nose while a defense attor-
ney for the mother claimed the
toddler drowned in the family
pool and the little girl's grand-
father helped cover up the acci-
Casey Anthony, 25, is charged
with first-degree murder. If con-
victed, she could be sentenced
to death.
An autopsy was never able to
conclude a cause of death for
Casey Anthony waited a
month before telling her moth-
er that Caylee had disappeared
during the summer of 2008, and
that was only after her parents,
George and Cindy Anthony, had
recovered a car Casey had been
driving, prosecutors said. The
vehicle, which the grandpar-
ents picked up from a towing
lot, had a foul odor inside.
During the month Caylee
was missing, prosecutor Linda
Irane Burdick told jurors
Casey went shopping, visited
friends and hung out with
her boyfriend. Between each
description of how Casey spent
her time, Burdick said: "Where
is Caylee Marie Anthony?"
She also described Internet
searches done on a computer
at. Casey's home that showed
queries for chloroform, neck-
breaking and alcohol.
Prosecutors said everything
Casey Anthony did was based
on a web of lies and that the
evidence points to her as the

Casey Anthony cries while listening to her defense counsel during
opening statements at the Orange County Courthouse on Tuesday in

"Casey Anthony ... appeared
to be ... a loving mother, trying to
provide support for her daugh-
ter," Burdick said. "But as the
evidence in this case will show,
that was an illusion." .
Casey previously said a baby
sitter kidnapped the girl, but her
attorney suggested a different
set of events during his opening
Casey's attorney, Jose Baez,
said she was molested by her
father as a child, an allegation
George Anthony denied on the
witness stand. George Anthony
also told jurors that Caylee didn't
die at his house, and he denied
disposing of her 'body and plac-
ing duct tape over her face.
"I would have done everything
possible to save my granddaugh-
ter if what was said happened,
happened," said George Anthony,

the only witness to testify so far.
Baez also claimed that Casey's
brother made advances toward
.her and was given a paternity
test to see if he was Caylee's
father. All those secrets eventual-
ly led to the cover up of Caylee's
drowning, Baez said.
"You will hear about a family
that is dysfunctional," Baez said.
"Ugly things. Secret things."
Baez said Caylee and her
grandmother swam most
of Father's Day on June 15,
2008, and suggested that Cindy
Anthony forgot to pull up a lad-
der that prevented the toddler
from climbing into the pool on
her own. Baez suggested that
Caylee slipped into the pool

Group discovers

$203M in 'turkeys'

in state budget

Associated Press

and advocacy group with close
business ties on Tuesday recom-
mended that Gov. Rick Scott veto
105 "turkeys" worth $203 mil-
lion because they were added to
Florida's budget after bypassing
normal review processes or had
not been requested by an agency
or the governor.
Projects on Florida TaxWatch's
annual list include a wide range
of transportation and college and
university building projects as
well as spending on local facili-
ties such as civic, senior, sports,
health care and agricultural cen-
Turkeys are Florida's version
of "pork" at the federal level. .
TaxWatch, though, limits its
turkey list to items with proce-
dural issues regardless of wheth-
er their public benefit is question-
While not the biggest list
TaxWatch has compiled over the
last 29 years, the organization's
president, Dominic Calabro, said
he was surprised it was so long
because lawmakers have called
the upcoming budget year that
begins July 1 one of the tough-
est budget years on record after
cutting nearly $4 billion in spend-
Many items listed were in nei-
ther the House nor Senate ver-
sions of the budget but added by
joint conference committees or
by the chambers' budget chairs,
Sen. JD Alexander, R-Lake Wales,
and Rep. Denise Grimsley, R-
"There seemed to be politi-
cal preference over public policy
priority," Calabro said at a news
conference in Coral Gables. "It
creates a serious question of
integrity for the budget process
even though a project in a vacu-

um in its own way sounds
like it's going to help people and
do a lot of good."
Scott has promised he'll be
vetoing some spending when he
signs the $69.7 billion budget
into law but hasn't yet disclosed
which items he'll reject. He has
until June 1 to act.
Alexander's Polk County has
items worth $18 million on the
list, including $11 million for proj-
ects at the University of South
Florida's branch in Lakeland.
In Highlands, Grimsley's home
county, the list includes $1.5
million for stormwater work at
Sebring's airport and $2.5 million
for a firefighting facility at South
Florida Community College.
Neither Alexander nor
Grimsley immediately returned
phone message, but Sen. Joe
Negron, a Stuart Republican who
chairs the Senate's budget sub-
committee that oversees health
and human services spending,
issued a statement calling the
turkey list "a complete misappre-
hension of the legislative appro-
priations process" and a "fading
media gimmick."
'This hackneyed annual list of
ostensible 'turkeys' and 'pork' is
based on the mistaken rationale
that budget decisions originat-
ing from the executive branch
come clothed with a presumption
of correctness while ideas from
the elected representatives of the
people should be viewed with
suspicion," Negron said.
The biggest turkey is $12 mil-
lion for a national homeless vet-
erans support group in Brevard
County. It's represented by Senate
President Mike Haridopolos, a
Merritt Island Republican who
is seeking the GOP U.S. Senate
nomination. Also listed is $7.5
million for a public safety institute
at Brevard Community College,
Haridopolos' former employer. .

Lake City Midde School's spring

game dominated by Red team


From the start it was clear that the
Red team was ready to dominate. An
80-yard reverse touchdown on the
first play broke a scoreless tie and the
Red team would beat the White team
35-7 in Lake City Middle School's
spring scrimmage.
Ronald Cray broke into open field
on an 80-yard reverse on the first play
from scrimmage to give the Red team
an early 7-0 lead.
The White team would strike
back on a 50-yard sweep from Qwlix
Hawkins on its second possession,
but that was the last time the game
would be tied.
After fumbles on consecutive pos-
sessions, the Red team began work-
ing on the scoreboard.
Jake Thomas hit Cray on a pass
down to the 4-yard line, setting up
Marcus Ziegler for an apparent touch-
down. The play was called back for
holding, however, and Thomas was
left to run it in himself on a quarter-
back keeper for the 14-7 lead.,
White began the second half with

possession, but Brock Edge came
up with an interception to set up the
Red's next score.
Derontae Jordan did the rest on a
15-yard sweep for the 21-7 lead.
On fourth down, the White elected
to go for it on its next possession and
the Red's Jordan Culp came. away
with an interception.
Again, the Red team didn't take
long to punch the ball into the
end zone. Jordan took a sweep 30
yards for the. three-touchdown lead,
Jordan made it the trifecta on the
Red's next possession as he came
in at quarterback. He rolled out to
the right before tucking the ball in
and scrambled 25 yards for the final
"I think we're the opposite of
where we were at.this time last year,"
Lake City Middle School coach Billy
Jennings said. "Last year, we were
way ahead on the defense. This year,
we've got the experience on the
Jennings was excited with how his
quarterback ran the offense to the
tune of 35 points.

"He's got experience," Jennings
said. "Derontae Jordan also ran the
ball really hard. Brock Edge also had
a nice interception to set the offense
Overall, Jennings is excited about
what the Falcons will be as a collec-
tive group in the fall.
"As a unit, I think we'll be fine,"
he said. "We'll continue to work hard
to prepare for Camden County on
August 29."
Columbia High coach Brian
Allen was also in attendance and
he liked what he saw out of the
"Here and at Richardson last week,
I saw the kids working really hard
and that's encouraging," Allen said.
"Anytime you can get the kids in talk-
ing the same language at this age, it's
going to help. It's going to help with

thing is that we saw effort and at

fourth round. He had never
previously dropped a set in
the first or second round.
The top-seeded Nadal is
trying to equal Bjorn Borg's
record of six French Open
Also advancing to the sec-
ond round were Australian
Open finalists Andy Murray
and Li Na, as well as Maria
Sharapova, Kim Clijsters
and two-time French Open
finalist Robin Soderling.
Nadal came into the
tournament after losing to
Novak Djokovic on clay in
finals in Rome and Madrid.
But the top-ranked Spaniard
is still considered by many
to be the favorite at Roland
That didn't seem to mat-
ter at first anyway to
Isner, the man best known
for playing in the longest
tennis match in history last
year at Wimbledon.
Despite losing the first
set, the tall American held
strong and forced Nadal
into a pair of tiebreakers,
where his big serve helped
him put Nadal on the defen-
But with only six unforced
errors the rest of the way

- none in the fourth set
- Nadal proved he is still
the man to beat on clay.
"I didn't play well in the
tiebreak, and *I didn't have
chances to have the break,"
Nadal said. "When you play
against these kind of play-
ers, the pressure is there all
the time. You have to play
all the time very safe."
Sharapova, who was
coming off the biggest clay-
court title of her career,
rolled into the second round
by beating Mirjana Lucic of
Croatia 6-3, 6-0.
The seventh-seeded
Russian won the Italian
Open before coming to
Roland Garros to seek the
only Grand Slam title she
has never won.
"If you feel pressure, it's
part of the business. It's part
of the sport," Sharapova said
of the expectations placed
on her. "That means there's
something on the line. That
means you want it bad. It's
how you handle it.
"Without pressure,
what's the sport about? It's
how you really handle the
Against Lucic on center
court, Sharapova was not

troubled. She won nine
straight games to finish the
match and never faced a
break point.

and that reputation could
grow even greater thanks
to the NCAA's mandate of
less powerful metal bats
that have caused offense
to plummet across the
But as teams have grown
used to the new bats,
offense has improved. The
Gators hit 31 homers in 30
SEC games.
"I think people are hit-
ting a little better," Florida
coach Kevin O'Sullivan
said. "As much as pitching
had the advantage in the
first half of the season, I
don't see the gap as big
right now."
Vanderbilt (44-9) hopes
that's not the case. The
Commodores have an
SEC-best 2.55 ERA, led by
Sonny Gray, who has a 9-3
record, 2.17 ERA and 105
strikeouts in 95.1 innings
pitched. He's considered
one of the top prospects
for next month's Major
League Baseball draft.
The Commodores can
hit, too, with a league-
leading .319 average.
Vanderbilt's played well
in Hoover recently, with a
tournament title in 2007.

"I'm certainly proud of
how we've navigated our
way through the season,"
Vanderbilt coach Tim
Corbin said. "We haven't
had many ups and downs.
Not many injuries. From
that standpoint every-
thing's gone well. We
thought this year could be
a good one."
While the Gamecocks,
Gators and Commodores
have been the league's
three best teams, the real
drama will be for programs
lower in the bracket that
are fighting for their NCAA
Tournament lives.
Georgia (28-28) is the
No. 5 seed and Auburn
(29-27) is the No. 8 seed at
this week's tournament.
Both have computer
profiles that would give
them a good chance to
earn an at-large bid into
the NCAA Tournament,
but there's one stipulation
- teams must be at least
one game over .500 for
at-large consideration.
That means the Bulldogs
have to win at least three
games in the double-
elimination tournament.
The Tigers need one win.

Georgia coach David
Perno said he didn't expect
the added pressure to get
to his team. The Bulldogs
have consistently battled
adversity this season, start-
ing with a 3-8 record and
losing outfielder Johnathan
Taylor to a horrific injury
that left him partially para-
"Nothing changes for
us," Perno said. 'We've
got to win games and play
good baseball."
Arkansas is the tour-
nament's No. 2 seed after
winning the Western
Division with a 15-15
record. Mississippi State is
the No. 6 seed, returning
to the SEC Tournament for
the first time since 2007.
Alabama is the No. 7 seed.
This year's tournament
is also notable for what
teams didn't qualify. LSU
won the national title in
2009 and has won the past
three SEC Tournaments,
but wasn't among the top
eight teams in the 12-team
league. The Tigers finished
tied for last in the Western
Division with Mississippi,
which hadn't missed a trip
to Hoover since 2002.

Woman in love with gay man

wonders if they have a future


DEAR ABBY: I started a
relationship with a co-work-
er. We went out for several
months, and I found myself
really enjoying his com-
pany. The feeling was mu-
tual. After several months
I told him I was developing
feelings for him, more than
just friends. He told me he
was gay. I was shocked, sad-
dened and angry all at the
same time, but we went on
to develop an even stronger
I have fallen in love with
him, but I have had coun-
seling and I believe those
feelings are in check. We
have a special bond that's
hard to explain. For lack of
a better term, we have used
the words "soul mate" to de-
scribe this feeling. He has
even said he would like a life-
long commitment with me
and has thought about mar-
rying me. He said holding
hands, walks on the beach
and romantic things aren't
a problem for him to share
with me, but he cannot offer
me anything sexual.
He wants to share his
life with me. We aren't kids
- we're in our 40s and 50s.
He's a wonderful man, 'and
I do want him in my life. Is
it wrong to think about a
future with him? CON-


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Someone who
wants to control a situation
in which you are involved
will mislead you, using emo-
tional tactics. Put some dis-
tance between you and the
people playing dominant
roles in your life. Don't ne-
glect your responsibilities
but protect your position,
status and assets. ***
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): You will motivate
and inspire others to give
more and to take greater
responsibility. Love and ro-
mance are highlighted. So-
cialize if you are single or
plan a special evening for
two if you are involved in a
relationship. ****
GEMINI (May 2 -lJune
20): You'll have trouble
getting along with people
in a position of authority.
Difficulties with an associ-
ate may lead to a feud that
won't be easy to resolve.
Deal with your professional
duties quickly **
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Take note of the
way others approach work
and you will get some posi-
tive ideas to improve the.
way you do your job. Part-
nering with someone you
feel you can learn some-
thing from will enable you
to view a concern you have
from a different perspec-
tive. *****

Eugenia Last

LEO. (July 23-Aug.
22): Don't trust anyone
trying to entice you to take
part in a fast-cash scheme.
Put our money into some-
thing that will help you pick
up knowledge and skills
that will raise your earning
potential. A difference of
opinion can cause a prob-
lem regarding advance-
ment. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Travel, romance and
gaining experience are all
highlighted. Don't let an
emotional obstacle stop
you from following through
with your plans or you will
have regrets. Put a little
pressure on whoever is in
charge. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): You may know what
you want but trying to get
others to accommodate
you will not be easy. Fix
up your home but don't g1
overboard. A wrong choice
will be difficult to reverse.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Plan your day
carefully. Focus on what
you can do to make your
life better. An unusual ap-
proach to home improve-
ments or recreational time
spent with family will bring
good results. Pamper your-

self. *****
22-Dec. 21): Whether it's
the information you are be-
ing fed or your timing that
is off, it's best to take it
slow and double check ev-
erything before you make a
move. A poor choice based
on emotions will lead to a
mishap with a friend, neigh-
bor or relative. **
22-Jan. 19): Getting in-
volved with people from
different backgrounds will
lead to misunderstandings
or an additional burden. Fo-
cus on the one you love and
how you can make your
place more inviting. Don't
take on too many expenses.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): You'll be fed a lot
of information. Don't take
what everyone is telling
you to heart. You have to
do what works for you. Not
everyone will understand
where you are coming from
or what your needs are.

PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Don'tbe fooled
by what someone tells you.
Rely on the people you have
known and trusted the lon-
gest. A chance to get ahead
professionally is apparent if
you are creative, imagina-
tive and willing to give an
old idea a new twist ***

was a good cook. Now that
I'm married and have lived
away from home for 10



years, I realize that Mom,
with all her good intentions,
was an awful cook. She was
never adventurous, prefers
canned and frozen foods, no
vegetables and highly pro-
cessed grains. I have cho-
sen a completely opposite
path and buy lots of natural,
unprocessed fresh foods.
As a result, I now cook
all the holiday meals with.
Mom helping with the prep
and small tasks. I have tried
to encourage her to eat bet-

but it isn't sinking in. Every
time we have dinner at her

eaten at a fast-food estab-
I don't want to be a con-

find a compromise when
she wants to "treat" us to
dinner at her place. Sug-
gestions? FOODIE IN

Stephen Foster State Park among state's best

Visitors can find
charm, beauty
and old Florida
style within the
Stephen Foster
Folk Culture Center State
Park in White Springs.
The park officially
opened in 1950 but its
origins date back much
In 1931, Josiah K Lilly,
the son of Indiana phar-
maceutical manufacture
Eli K Lilly, suggested
a memorial to Stephen
Foster, said Bob Giarda,
park service specialist.
Foster wrote "Old Folks at
Home," which highlighted
the Suwannee River for
the nation. It was officially
adopted as Florida's state
song in 1935.
The Florida Federation
of Music Clubs sup-
ported the idea of honor-
ing Foster and obtained
contributions of land
in White Springs. The
Stephen Foster Memorial
Commission administered
the development of the
The Stephen Foster'
Museum opened to the
public in 1957 and the
park expanded to include
Carillon Tower and a gift
shop, playground and
Craft Square.
The craft square fea-
tures demonstrations and
classes on quilting, black-
smithing and more.
"Ifts really a very hands-
on opportunity for people
to-get involved," Giarda
said. -"There is so much
more than having a picnic .

Gailanne (left) and Roger Amundsen, both of Jubal's Kin, perform last year at the Florida Folk Festival held at the Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Center State Park.

You can come in and really
experience the park and
get your hands dirty."
Also available at the
park are five luxury cab-
ins, 45 campsites for tent
and RV camping, as well
as areas for hiking, bicy-
clifig, caioeing" aid wild-

life viewing.
"Josiah would be very
proud at where we are
today and what the park
has really evolved into,"
he said. "It is a wonderful
folk culture center that
preserves and celebrates.
Florida hile honiliigg

composer Stephen Foster."
The park hosts more
than 50 events through-
out the year, including
a monthly coffee house,
quilt show and Christmas
Festival of Lights Giarda
said. No other state park
holds more special events

than Stephen Foster.
"We really always have
something going on," he
More than 33,000 people
will attend the annual
Florida Folk Festival this
Friday through Sunday at
the park, Giarda said. The

festival is the park's big-
gest event each year.
John Anderson and
Billy Dean headline the
festival, which is honoring
the eight-county region of
the Florida panhandle this
year. Crafts and food will
be reflective of the region.
A total of 12 people
work full time and.eight
part time keeping the park
running, Giarda said. Also
helping out are volunteers.
"We have so many vol-
unteers that really are the
people behind the scenes
that make it happen,
like the Citizen Support .
Organization," he said.
"Volunteers are the life
blood of the park".
Working with the Lake
City Reporter provides a
close partnership for the
park to share informa-
tion about its happenings,
Giarda said.
"We rely on the Lake
City Reporter to keep citi-
zens informed of our 50-
plus events we have going
on here," he said.
The Reporter is a
dependable source of
relaying news and infor-
mation in the Suwannee
Valley area, Giarda said.
The Stephen Foster Folk
Culture Center State Park
is located at 11016 Lillian
Saunders Drive in White
Springs. Park admission is
$5 for vehicles with up to
eight passengers. Anyone
interested in getting
involved with the Citizens
Support Organization can
