StateDOE chiefquitsBy BILL KACZORAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson is resigning from the job hes held for a year, his time marked by glitches in the states school grad-ing system and standardized testing pro-gram. Robinson gave no reason for leaving in letters of resignation that he submitted Tuesday to Gov. Rick Scott and State Board of Education Chairwoman Kathleen Shanahan. The letters included a list of accomplishments, but Robinson wrote only that he was resigning effective Aug. 31, after much contemplation and discussion with his family. The board, not Scott, appoints the commissioner, but the Republican governor gave Robinson his enthusiastic sup-port after pressuring his pre-decessor, Eric Smith, to resign shortly after Scott took office.

John 1:12-13 NIV TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scotts staff is hav ing trouble again with his emails or at least know ing where they are. Less than three months after announcing a pro gram to post online the governors emails and those of his staff, it turns out only staff emails were available. Scotts emails were in a separate account. The Miami Herald first reported the issue. Scott announced a pro gram he called Project Sunburst in early May that would allow access to his emails within 24 hours of the time they were written. The idea was to give citizens an open and transparent win dow into the workings of state government. When Scott announced Project Sunburst, he noted that some emails might not be put on the website imme diately although most would be available within a week. Scott also said some would have to be reviewed to ensure the information was not exempt to public disclosure. Providing access to only some of the gover nors emails the positive emails sent to an email address not generally avail able to the public at large is not transparency, it is, at the very least, mis information, and under scores the need for strong public access laws, First Amendment Foundation President Barbara Petersen said Tuesday. We need to see Florida officials serious about transparency with their emails, said Dan Krassner, executive direc tor of the ethics research and advocacy group Integrity Florida. Were either going to see trans parency fully embraced by Project Sunburst or continuation of what has essentially been a propa ganda machine. The governor remains on vacation out west and his office did not imme diately respond Tuesday for comment on the latest email controversy. Krassner suggested that Scott adopt a real-time, searchable system similar to one in Alachua County where all emails are auto matically included and immediately available to the public. If a county government can do it, the state govern ment can do it, Krassner said Tuesday. It isnt the first time the first-term Republican gov ernor has been tangled up in an email controversy. Scotts decision in May to make the emails pub lic followed numerous complaints during his first year in office from media organizations that his administration was not fulfilling public records requests in a timely fash ion. It was also about nine months after Scott ordered an investigation into how emails he had written between his election and taking office were deleted. Confidence up 3 points in July GAINESVILLE Florida consumer confi dence is rebounding. A University of Florida survey of 411 residents, which was released Tuesday, showed a 3 point gain in July to 76. That score is on a two-to-150 scale with 100 equaling consumer confidence in the benchmark year of 1966. Floridians perception of being better off than they were a year ago went up 5 points to 82 the highest its been since the end of 2009. They also were more optimistic about their personal finances and that now is a good time to buy big-ticket items. But their confidence in the nations economy during the next five years dropped. Chris McCarty, director of the universitys Survey Research Center, said ris ing housing prices low and record-low mortgage rates have contributed to the overall optimism. Woman traded baby for pickup PALATKA Authorities say a 30-year-old woman sold a baby boy for a 1999 Dodge Dakota truck in Kentucky and then fled to Florida. The Putnam County Sheriffs Office says Heather Ann Kaminsky was arrested July 18 at a Winn-Dixie supermarket. She has been extradited back to Kentucky where shell face charges of human trafficking. Authorities say Kaminsky sold the baby shortly after his birth in January. Deputies say the couple accused of trading their truck for the baby Jeremy and Jamiee Brown of Laurel, Ky. were arrested July 12 and also face human trafficking charges. Scotts emails not in public release NEW ORLEANS New Orleans police say an arrest warrant has been issued for actor Cuba Gooding Jr. after an incident at a Bourbon Street bar. Police said in a news release that a bartender told officers that Gooding was there at 3 a.m. Tuesday when he became upset with other patrons who started asking him to take photo graphs with them. The bartender told offi cers that Gooding pushed her after she asked him to calm down, and again after she told him he needed to leave and police had been called. Gooding left the bar before police arrived. Police issued an arrest warrant for municipal battery, a misde meanor. Goodings publicist declined comment. The actor is in New Orleans film ing The Butler, a movie about a White House butler who serves eight American presidents. Gervais to launch Web series NEW YORK Ricky Gervais wants to teach you English. The comedian announced Tuesday on his blog that hes working on a Web series called Learn English with Ricky Gervais. It co-stars Gervais frequent collaborator and foil Karl Pinkington. Though Gervais didnt describe the series, it can be expected to be more comedic than educational. The comedian said he had finished the pilot epi sode and that he would post it online for free. After that, he said he may charge a few dollars from viewers or seek sponsorship. Gervais said he hopes to subtitle the show in as many languages as possible, including a Klingon version. Lovett opens at Acadiana Center LAFAYETTE, La.

Philly library features Colbert PHILADELPHIA Talk show host Stephen Colberts foray into chil drens books has landed him alongside some exalt ed literary company. A playful new exhibit at the Rosenbach Museum & Library pairs priceless material by James Joyce and Maurice Sendak with, um, perhaps less valuable items used by Colbert to write I Am A Pole (And So Can You!). Colberts pens, beer bot tles and lunch remnants are certainly not the usual fare for the Rosenbach, the Philadelphia institution that houses the only com plete manuscript of Joyces Ulysses. But museum officials say the display reinforces their mission to engage and inspire visitors with collections that include papers from Lewis Carroll, Bram Stoker and Miguel de Cervantes. n Associated Press Actor Cuba Gooding Jr arrives for the screening of Cosmopolis at the 65th international film festival, in Cannes, southern France. New Orleans police say an arrest warrant has been issued on a municipal battery charge for actor Cuba Gooding after an incident Tuesday at a New Orleans bar. Gooding was in New Orleans filming.

LawsagainstDemocracy ONE OPINION M y job requires that I follow the news quite close-ly, especially on matters that hit close to home, and I consider myself fortunate to draw a pay-check for doing something I enjoy. Not everyone has time to keep up with the latest educational legislation out of Tallahassee, or where the courts appear headed on issues ranging from water rights to eminent domain. Its the job of people like me, then, to stay current on such issues and tell you about them. However, those seeking elected office on any level should be held to a higher standard, as I see it. And so last week when our editorial board began interview-ing candidates for local office, we fully expected them to be at least conversant with the issues of the day for the posts they were seeking. That wasnt always the case. A surprising number of candidates seemed fully uninformed on matters of critical impor-tance in their contests, such as the new merit pay law for teach-ers or various issues concerning economic development in the county. Most promised that if elected they would research each of these issues fully. Thats putting the cart before the horse, as I see it. If it wasnt interest in such issues that drove you to run in the first place, perhaps you should rethink your candidacy. These candidates did not win our endorsement. Those that did, had generally done their homework. Whats more, they expressed intellectual curiosity concern-ing matters they hadnt yet fully grasped. Thats not to say that only the candidates we endorsed are worthy of consideration. In some cases we had a very tough time making our picks. In any case, we arent here to tell you how to vote. We full well expect you to cast your ballot as you see fit. Our role is simply to share our impressions of the field and report on who we see as best suited for each post. See Fridays paper for our picks in the August 14 primary. Our interest in these races doesnt end there, though. Come fall, we will offer our picks for the November 6 gen-eral election. Be sure to vote, though, whomever you choose. Early voting for the primary starts Saturday.

Sell your song somewhere else, not in my town.Lawrence DouglassLakc City Robert Bridgesrbridges@lakecityreporter.com Q Robert Bridges is editor of the Lake City Reporter. I n Russia, Vladimir Putins government is prosecuting three women for a prayer to toss the president out of office. In the Netherlands and Denmark, officials have been putting people on trial for what they have said about Muslims. In Chicago, San Francisco and Boston, mayors are aiming to stop a restaurant chain from expanding because the owner does not believe in gay marriage. Much of the world is still fighting freedom, insisting that either you bow to positions officially deemed right and pure or face sanctions. And yes, there is a significant difference in degree between whats happening in these different places, but its the same tendency in all of them -something Americans, at least, ought to recognize as a demand for subservient serfdom contrary to all we stand for. The charge against the Russian women is religiously hostile hoo-liganism, according to a Reuters account. The Russian Orthodox Church supported Putins return to the presidency, and the women -all in their 20s -danced on the altar of Christ the Savior Cathedral as a protest prayer. Any normal, balanced, halfway decent human being would say that, at the most, it was slap-on-the-wrist time, not destroy-your-life time, even as a threat. Protests have limits, but so does governmental mayhem. Defenders of laws against hate speech would have you believe that prosecutions can be confined to limited circumstances of clear-cut maliciousness obvi-ously endangering others. Thats not what happens in the real world. Such laws inevitably lead to the harassment of people like Lars Hedegaard, a Danish histo-rian and journalist who had said Muslim men in some parts of the world engage in incestuous rape. All of these foreign accounts bring us finally to our own land of the less and less free, a place where some are doing their best to shut up think tanks, public commentators and campaign ads that see issues differently from them. Now this: Three mayors oppose the expansion of Chick-fil-A in their cities because, as a mat-ter of religious conviction shared by millions, the owner does not believe in gay/lesbian marriage. In Chicago, an alderman said a permit for a new restaurant would be denied -use of government to punish speech -and Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the firms values are not the citys values although the firms owner was not arguing against homosexual mates living together. While I agree that our society has visited unconscionable hurt on homosexuals and think we are veering toward allowing gay marriage nationally, I also think the basic question is whether we should officially redefine a funda-mental institution at a time when it is already in tatters. At the very least, there is nothing alarming about the owners stance, and its Rahm Emanuel whose values are not those of a new world that has been different from the old in its exceptional devotion to liberty. n Jay Ambrose, formerly Washington director of editorial policy for Scripps Howard news-papers and the editor of dailies in El Paso, Texas, and Denver, is a columnist living in Colorado. Email SpeaktoJay(at)aol.com.) Jay AmbroseSpeaktoJay@aol.comFighting free speechT he Obama admin-istration is sup-pressing efforts to ensure the Nov. 6 vote tally will be fair and accurate. Several states have passed voter-identification laws so the principle of one man, one vote is upheld. The Justice Department is playing a legal-istic version of Whack-a-Mole in trying to knock down these statutes wherever they pop up. Pennsylvania became the most recent target of a federal investigation on July 23, when the Justice Departments Civil Rights Division demanded data on the states registered voters and those with ID cards. Its one of 11 states that have adopted laws since 2010 requiring voters to present a valid ID in order to cast a bal-lot on Election Day. Sponsors of the measures say they are designed to prevent election fraud, but opponents contend the real intent is to suppress the vote of minorities and the elderly who might not pos-sess proper ID. On orders from Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., Justice filed suit to block voter ID laws in South Carolina and Texas and has launched investigations in Florida and Georgia. When Barack Obama was elected president in 2008, the Keystone State did see sup-pression mischief, but not of the sort that voter ID oppo-nents fear. In Philadelphia, several nightstick-carrying members of the New Black Panther Party were charged with voter intimidation after threatening white voters at the polling place. Higher-ups at Justice ordered the charges dropped, leading to growing perception that the depart-ment harbors racial bias. A Rasmussen survey in December showed that 70 percent of individuals polled approve of a photo-ID require-ment while only 22 percent oppose such a rule. Its clear the only vote suppression Americans favor is that of ineligible ballots. Its equally evident that on Nov. 6, Mr. Obama would prefer re-elec-Knockthe vote ANOTHER VIEW E very day in Washington, gov-ernment officials at the Pentagon, the State Department, the White House, Congress or the CIA, to name a few talk to journalists about information that is consid-ered sensitive. The officials are not quoted by name, but the information is provided for the reporters understand-ing and it often makes its way into the public realm. These officials are attempting to help the American peo-ple sort out complex policies. Often they have strong views, as boosters or dissidents of the policies. This vast public square is a robust and endur-ing feature of our democracy. Now, spurred by recent national security leaks, the Senate intelligence commit-tee has voted 14 to 1 to out-law many of such background briefings. An amendment to the 2013 intelligence authori-zation bill would prohibit any-one but the director, deputy director or public affairs representative of an intel-ligence agency from provid-ing background or off-the-record information regarding intelligence activities to the media. Those at the top could go on talking, while lower-level experts or anyone who might have contrary views would be blocked. The provision is crude and dangerous. For example, at the end of April, intelligence officials spoke to reporters about their assessment of al-Qaeda one year after the kill-ing of Osama bin Laden. The briefing included important information about the bin Laden network and to what extent it might be a threat in the future. This is of extreme public interest. Under the Senate bill, the briefing might well have been prohibited. Other provisions in the bill are also flawed. One would extend the reach of pre-pub-lication review by the intel-ligence community to include not only manuscripts but also anticipated oral com-ments. Yet another would ban government employees or contractors with security clearances from entering into contracts with the media to provide analysis or com-mentary on intelligence matters. Former officials who left within the previous year would also be silenced, as would members of advisory boards to the intelligence community. The amendment is poorly drafted. It fails to define the media. Does it include book publishing or social media? Would a 140-character tweet violate the law? It sweepingly prohibits disclosure of intel-ligence activities without dis-tinguishing among different levels of classification that are used every day by the 4.8 million people authorized to handle such material. The chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), said in a news release that the culture of leaks has to change. Surely Congress can do better. Serious reform would deal not only with pro-tecting secret information but also repair a dysfunctional system that wildly overclassi-fies documents which would enrich the public debate. This hastily conceived legisla-tion would choke off the daily give-and-take that is the life-blood of a democratic society without making the nation in any way more secure. Q The Washington Post

Florida officials courted Robinson who had been Virginias education secretary for about a year before he took the Florida post. He has been a tireless advo cate for creating quality learning opportunities for all of Floridas students and he will certainly be missed, Scott said in a state ment. Shanahan similarly praised Robinson for working with the board to raise standards for schools and students and as a leader who embodies and under stands the importance of educa tion reform. Robinson, though, has had to defend falling scores on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test and lower school grades on the states A-to-F scale as the result of efforts to increase rigor that began before he took the job. In his letter Robinson cited the tougher standards as one of his accomplishments. The board, though, passed an emergency rule to revise the scor ing criteria for the FCAT writing test after preliminary results indi cated only about a third of stu dents would pass compared to 80 percent last year. The rule kept the passing percentage about the same as 2011. The panel also agreed that no school would lose more than one letter grade this year. The grades are based largely on FCAT scores. Robinson wrote a letter that was distributed to parents telling them they shouldnt be overly concerned about this years FCAT results. He has also defended Floridas testing requirements against a rising chorus of critics. They include the Florida School Boards Association, which has called for an independent review of the FCATs reliability following its most recent problems. Robinson disputed the associ ations contention the test is too expensive and narrows the cur riculum because teachers focus on whats tested. He said the $59 million that goes to testing is only a half of a percent of overall annual state and local spending on public schools. He cited grow ing enrollment in such noncore courses as dance, drama and for eign languages. The Florida Education Association, the statewide teach ers union, has been at odds with such programs as high-stakes testing, school vouchers and merit pay that have been pushed mostly by Republican politicians as ways to improve the states schools. Robinsons departure will give the board and Scott a chance to reconnect with the parents and educators whose voices have been ignored for too long, said FEA spokesman Mark Pudlow. The new commissioner needs to have an honest and meaningful dialogue with parents, teachers and administrators to improve our schools. Among his accomplishments, Robinson cited recent town halls hes held in 26 counties, the cre ation of a Task Force on Inclusion and Accountability, an initiative to get teachers to communicate with each other about closing minority achievement gaps, new competency and skill standards for science and math teacher and higher standards for the states pre-kindergarten program. Robinson was among several new applicants the board con sidered to replace Smith after reopening its search last year due to dissatisfaction with the initial group. Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell appointed Robinson as his edu cation secretary in 2010. Before that, Robinson had been an advocate for such school choice options as charter schools and vouchers that also are priorities for McDonnell and Scott. He served as president of the Black Alliance for Educational Options and worked on Virginias char ter school legislation when he worked as a lawmakers staffer. Attorney Ben Crump said he sent a letter Monday on behalf of the parents of D.J. Searcy to county commissioners in Ben Hill County, Ga., notifying them of the parents intent to sue. Crump said he also sent a similar letter on behalf of the mother of Isaiah Laurencin to the Broward County School Board in Florida. Both teens died within hours of collapsing during football drills in hot weather. Broward County Schools spokeswoman Tracy Clark said the district doesnt comment on pending or potential lawsuits. The chairman of the Ben Hill County board of commis sioners also did not imme diately return a call seek ing comment. Its been a year and they havent gotten any answers, unfortunately, Crump said Tuesday. High school foot ball players are starting their practices again now and are doing two prac tices a day in hot weather, and proper precautions havent been put in place, he added. Searcy, a 16-year-old defensive line man at Fitzgerald High School, told coaches he couldnt continue after fall ing to the ground Aug. 2, 2011, during practice at a football camp in Columbia County. He was told to keep going, Crump said. Searcy had demonstrated symptoms of dehydration and had been found uncon scious in his cabin the night before, and coaches didnt request medical help and still required him to show up to practice the next day, Crump said. He had such high aspi rations and we had such high aspirations for him that a loss like this feels like someone stole something from us, Carlton Searcy said of his sons death. Laurencin, a 16-yearold offensive lineman, was participating in condition ing drills at Miramar High School on July 26, 2011, when he collapsed. He died hours later from heat exhaustion, Crumps letter to the school board said. The high schools employ ees, coaches and person nel were negligently hired, trained and supervised and failed to use proper policies or procedures to address heat-related illness, the letter said. Laurencin had been hospitalized a week for heat exhaustion a year before his death. ply wanted to get home.

Unable to find a ride home, she fell asleep on a couch in the garage of the party loca tion.

Wienand told authorities she took the car and drove it home, but then became scared about it being found at her house. She chose to leave it at an abandoned house off Weeks Street.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) A top official involved in Floridas con tentious push to identify and remove potentially ineligible voters is stepping down just two weeks before the Aug. 14 primary. Division of Elections Director Gisela Salas is leaving her job this week to take a position closer to her home in Ocala, Secretary of State Ken Detzner announced Monday in an email to county election supervisors. Salas, who earns $90,000 a year, was hired in May 2011 to oversee the office that does everything from approve certain types of election machines to issu ing opinions on how to interpret election law. But Salas was also deep ly involved in the effort by the state to identify nonU.S. citizens on the voter rolls. Many local election officials halted the effort to remove non-U.S. citizens from the rolls amid conflict ing legal opinions and com plaints that a list of more than 2,600 voters produced by the state was flawed. The state had derived the list by comparing drivers license information with voter regis tration rolls. But while nonU.S. citizens were on the list, there were also more than 500 citizens on it. The state plans to restart the push to identify nonU.S. citizens after it runs the names through a fed eral immigration database. The federal government recently agreed to give Florida access to the data base but the two sides have not yet signed a formal agreement. A spokesman for Detzner said the decision by Salas to resign was unrelated to her job perfor mance. Spokesman Chris Cate noted she was still commuting back and forth to her home in Marion County. This is her decision, Cate said. Salas spent 26 years working for Miami-Dade County, including 15 years in the county elections office. She also worked as chief deputy supervisor of elections in Broward County before taking a job with Marion County. She was working as an adjunct professor when she became the elections division director. Ann McFall, the Republican elections supervisor from Volusia County, questioned the timing. She was a good per son, McFall said. She would never do this two weeks before an election. Salas did not respond to an email to her personal email account. Detzner told county elec tions officials that the state elections division would be under the leadership and guidance of experienced managers including the deputy secretary of state while the state looks for a replacement. Detzner is spending part of this week meeting with local election supervisors to offer help in advance of the August elec tion. TALLAHASSEE Ever since he was exonerated of rape and released from 24 years in prison, Alan Jerome Crotzer has been an outspoken advocate for those wrongfully held in Floridas pris ons. On Tuesday, the 51-year-old was back in jail on a charge of attempted murder, accused of firing eight shots and wound ing the driver of a car next to him on a well-known street in Tallahassee that leads directly to the state Capitol. The allegation stunned those who have known Crotzer since he was released from prison in 2006. I dont know how to describe the reaction as anything but truly shocking, and based upon my experience over the course of the past several years, it is completely out of character, said Mark Schlakman, chairman of the board of directors of the Innocence Project of Florida. In many respects by my personal experience with him, hes an extraordinary individual. Crotzer was arrested on Monday night and was being held in a Leon County jail with out bond. His attorney, Thomas Powell, says he has not yet had time to discuss the charges with Crotzer, but he planned to file a plea of not guilty. Powell, who met Crotzer a year ago when he handled his divorce, called the allegations bizarre and inconsistent with the Alan Crotzer I have known for the past year. Tallahassee police say the shooting victim, Antoine Davis, told them Crotzer threatened him a couple of months ago after they had an argument over a CD he sold Davis girlfriend. On Sunday night while leaving a Best Buy store, Davis said he saw the car that belonged to Crotzers girlfriend. While driving away he said he saw a second car owned by Crotzer entering the parking lot. Davis said he tried to make a U-turn right after leaving the store, but the car followed him. He alleged Crotzer fired at him while both cars were going about 40 miles per hour. Davis said he did not know Crotzers name but police found Crotzer based on the description of his car. They said that Davis picked him out of a photo lineup. Thats him, thats the guy who shot me, Davis told police, adding later that he was trying to kill me. Crotzer spent more than 24 years in prison after being convicted in 1982 of robbing a Tampa family and kidnapping and raping a 38-year-old woman and a 12-year-old girl at gun point. Crotzer said he was nowhere near the scene and witnesses corroborated that, but he had a previous robbery conviction when he was 17 and a witness picked him out of a lineup. He was sentenced to 130 years in prison. Years later, another man con victed in the robbery told police that Crotzer wasnt with them that night and revealed the real rapist. DNA testing along with the other evidence then con vinced prosecutors that Crotzer wasnt involved. He was released in 2006. In 2008, then-Gov. Charlie Crist pardoned Crotzer for steal ing beer in 1979 when he was 18 and bringing marijuana into prison in 1991. Crotzer said he had turned his life around. Im not that monster they try to make me be. I am a new person, he told The Associated Press in October 2008. Crotzer is on the board of directors of the Innocence Project of Florida and has made public appearances speaking out on those who are wrongfully convicted by the state. Schlakman said Crotzer is a powerful and compelling speaker, adding that he has not evidenced any deep-seated bitterness based upon what he endured by way of his wrongful conviction. The Florida Legislature in 2008 approved a bill that paid Crotzer $1.25 million for his time spent in prison. Crotzer and the state signed an agreement that guaranteed him a $6,700 a month payment for 20 years as well as a $250,000 lump sum. The measure was a top prior ity of then-Senate President Ken Pruitt, but other top legislators supported the measure includ ing then-House Speaker Marco Rubio. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER STATE WEDNESDAY AUGUST 1, 2012 6A Same Day Service Includes Saturday Lake City Lake City Commons Center (Publix Shopping) 752-3733 Carrying Vera Bradley CONTACTS EYE EXAMS by Independent Optometrist 2 Complete Pair Eyeglasses 2 Complete Pair 2 Complete Pair $ 119 Includes Lenses & Frames Some Restrictions Apply.

Phelps sets record with 19th Olympic medalBy PAUL NEWBERRYAssociated PressLONDON Michael Phelps swam into history with his 19th Olympic medal, and this one was a more appropriate color. With a lot of help from his friends, Phelps took down the last major record that wasnt his alone, swim-ming the anchor leg for the United States in a gold medal-winning performance of the 4x200-meter freestyle relay Tuesday night. About an hour earlier, Phelps took one of the most frustrating defeats of his brilliant career, making a shocking blunder at the finish and settling for silver in his signature event, the 200 butterfly. That tied the record for career medals held by Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina, but it was hard-ly a triumphant moment. Phelps slung away his cap in disgust and struggled to force a smile at the medal ceremony. But any disappointment from that race was gone by the time he dived in the water on the relay, having been staked to a huge lead by teammates Ryan Lochte, Conor Dwyer and Ricky Berens. Before the race, they all huddled together, fully aware of their moment in history. I thanked those guys for helping me get to this moment, Phelps said. I told those guys I wanted a big lead. I was like, You bet-ter give me a big lead going into the last lap, and they gave it to me. I just wanted to hold on. I thanked them for being able to allow me to have this moment. Berens handed off a lead of nearly 4 seconds to Phelps, who lingered a bit on the blocks, know-ing the only way he could blow this one was to get disqualified. Then he set off on what amounted to four victory laps of the pool down and back, then down and back again, the roar in the Olympic Aquatics Centre getting louder as he approached the finish. Lochte stood on the deck, waving his arms. Dwyer and Berens pumped their fists. And Phelps touched the wall for his first gold of the London Games with a cumulative time of 6 min-utes, 59.70 seconds. No one else was close. Frances Yannick Agnel swam a faster final leg than Phelps, but it wasnt nearly U.S. wins first gymnastics Gold since 1996.

Alabama, LSU and SEC trying to remain on topBy JOHN ZENORAssociated PressThe Southeastern Conference has lined up a few contenders for Lucky No. 7. Defending national champion Alabama and last sea-sons 13-game juggernaut LSU remain the headliners of a league that has won the last six BCS titles. And thats despite the Crimson Tide and the Tigers losing a combined six first-round NFL draft picks. Other SEC and national powers are trying to catch up. Arkansas, which ended last season ranked fifth, and Georgia return star quar-terbacks. Steve Spurrier fields another formidable-looking South Carolina team. Plus, the Razorbacks and Gamecocks get star running backs back from injuries. Even those suffering Conference looks for 7th national title in a row.

Photos by BRANDON FINLEY Lake City ReporterAllen gives words of encouragement on last day of campBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comWith a list that showed 98 players showing up for the final day of the Exposure Foundation Football Camp, Exposure Foundation President Adee Farmers camp has grown significant-ly in its second year. More and more kids just started coming, Farmer said. People were steady bringing their kids out to get exercise and get in bet-ter shape. I can truly say that everyone that leaves the camp will leave with something and they will def-initely be in better shape. On the final day of the camp, Farmer invited Columbia High head foot-ball coach Brian Allen to offer words of encourage-ment to the group. Allens message relied less on football and more about doing the right things outside of the sport. You have to do the right things, Allen said. Its getting close to the end of the summer, so that may be picking up a book. Academics are like football. You have to keep your knife sharp. Im always telling my players to keep their blade sharp. Academics is like football and its going to take discipline. Of course, Allen wasnt the only coach offering up his time to the Exposure Foundation this summer. We had both Richardson and Lake City middle school coaches come by, Farmer said. Allen has been work-ing hand in hand with us to plant the seed for the future. Everyones trying to point these kids in the same direction. Farmer gave special thanks to Mike Ferrell and all the Pop Warner coaches that gave their time to the program. For this program to grow, it takes support, Farmer said. We couldnt have done it without their training.

China was far back in third at 7:06.30. Phelps might have backed into the record a bit by failing to win any of his first three events at these games, but theres no deny-ing his legacy as one of the greatest Olympians ever if not THE greatest. Phelps has 15 golds in his career, six more than anyone else, to go along with two silvers and two bronzes. Latynina won nine golds, five silvers and four bronzes from 1956-64. You are now a complete legend, the public-address announced bel-lowed, accompanied by the Foo Fighters song Best of You. Phelps still has three more races to go before he retires, three more chanc-es to establish a mark that will be hard for anyone to touch. It has been a pretty amazing career, he said, but we still have a couple races to go.Gymnastics takes goldLONDON One by one, the Americans thundered down the runway, soared high above the vault and slammed into the mat. Boom! Boom! Boom! When the fireworks were over, so was everybody elses chance for the gold medal. The Americans lived up to their considerable hype and then some Tuesday night, routing silver medalist Russia and everybody else on their way to their first Olympic title in womens gymnastics since 1996. Their score of 183.596 was a whopping five points better than Russias, and set off a debate over whether this is the best U.S. team of all time. Romania won the bronze. Others might disagree. The 96 team might disagree. But this is the best team, U.S. coach John Geddert said. The Americans didnt botch a single routine, and all but three of their 12 scores were 15.0 or higher. The Russians, on the other hand, had just one score above 15 in their last two events as they unraveled down the stretch. They sat on the sidelines sniffling and watching glumly as the Americans turned their final event, floor exercise, into a coronation. When the final standings flashed, chants of U-S-A! U-S-A! rocked the arena, and the U.S. women held up their index fingers for the cameras. PHELPS: Takes silver Continued From Page 1B
Gerald Smithy rode his three-birdie performance to a +7 win in Fridays Dogfight. Randy Heavrins +3 was good for second place and Wallace Christies +2 took third. Smithys birdies also captured three-fourths of the skin pool, as Wallace Christie slipped in a birdie for the other quarter of the pool. Closest to pin winners were Heavrin on Creeks No. 2 and Ponds No. 3, Bob Wheary on Creeks No. 6 and Chet Carter on Creeks No. 8. In Wednesday Blitz action, Joe Herring and Todd Carter both turned in a +7 performance to share first place. Mike Kahlich and Jerry Perkins shared third place at +2. The skin pool was dominated by the Todd Carters seven birdies and his round of 68. Keith Denmark, Jim Munns and Kahlich shared a skin apiece. The Wednesday night scramble was called off due to rain, rolling the big money pot over to today at 5:30. Sign up by 5 p.m. Congratulations to the group of Lake City Juniors who competed in the PGA North Chapter Jr. Championship held at Glen Kernan Country Club in Jacksonville. Tiara Carter and Gillian Norris finishing third and fourth, respectively, in the Prep Girls Division. Matt Soucinek was second in the Boys Foundation Division. Jacob Soucinek was seventh in the Boys 12-13 Division. Luke Soucinek was third in the Boys 14-15 Division. The MGA 400 tournament fielded four man groups playing under the name of NASCAR drivers. The format was based on one gross score and two net scores and, like some NASCAR races, ended in a photo finish. The team of Steve Patterson, Rocky Ryals, John Raulerson and Mike Yacovelli (Matt Kenseth) picked up the win on a scorecard regression over the team of Jonathan Allen, Keith Shaw, Pete Santzos and Charlie Timmons (Jeff Gordon). Third place went to the team of Mike McCranie, David Crawford, Jim Carr and Julius Davenport (Dale Earnhardt Jr.) Chad Hunter picked up two winners to split the skins payout with Yacovelli and Timmons. The Sunday blitz ended in a tie between Shelton Keen and Chris Lewis at +7. Buddy Slay was in third at +5. Slay posted an eagle and a birdie to collect two skins. Keen also had an eagle to collect a skin. Other skins winners were Terry Hunter with two, Chris Lewis, Mike Jacobs, Mike Streicher, Mickey Willcox, Dave Mehl and Bob Wheary with one each. Closest to the pin winners were Jacobs on No. 15, Wheary on No. 17 and Steve Thomas on Nos. 3 and 7. The Wednesday blitz A flight ended in a first-place tie between Mickey Willcox and George Burnham at +6. Mike Gough and Bob Randall shared second place at +5, a stroke ahead of Mike McCranie in fourth place. Mike Jacobs (+8) scored a one-point win over Lynn Smith in B flight. Don Howard, Bob McGraw and Ed Higgs tied for third with +5. Four skins were split among Joe Paul, McCranie, Jacobs, and Higgs. The battle for first place in the LGA odds-even contest featured a twoperson shoot-out won by Sally Rivers. Her score of 48 was only a half-point bet-ter than Shirley Edelsteins 48.5. Jan Davis managed third place with a 53, followed by Nicole Ste-Marie and Caroline Stevens at 54. The team of Dennis Hendershot, Dave Cannon, Eli Witt and Mike Spencer scored early and often to take an 11-6 victory over the team of Barney Hart, Bobby Simmons, Emerson Darst and Paul Davis in match one of Good Old Boys play. Match two was much closer, ending in a 6-5 win for the team of Shelton Keen, Howard Whitaker, Rob Brown and Bill Rogers over the team of Monty Montgomery, Tom Elmore, Stan Woolbert and Ed McKnight. In match three the team of Marc Risk, Jim Bell, Jeff Maynes and Merle Hibbard triumphed, 6-4, over Ed Snow, Jim Stevens, Doyle Worthington and Dan Stephens. Montgomerys 38-3472 headed a host of low individual scores. Risk (74), Hart (75), Woolbert (76), Keen, Whitaker and Hendershot (each with 78), and Bell (79) all had good rounds. Spencer was a nine hole winner with 38 on the front and Snows 39 won the back side. Carl Ste-Maries final Junior Golf Camp is 8-11 a.m. on Aug. 6-10.

R The FranchiseWeeds The FranchiseEpisodes QUAIL HEIGHTS COUNTRY CLUB Chet Carter COUNTRY CLUB at LAKE CITY Ed Goff SEC: Looking to stay on top of nation Continued From Page 1B GOLF REPORTS Photo finish in MGA 400 Smithy dominates Dogfight Lake City Open postponed From staff reportsThe annual Lake City Open golf tournament, orginally scheduled for Aug. 4-5, has been postponed. There are a lot of factors, but basically we didnt get the word out, The Country Club at Lake City pro Carl Ste-Marie said. Weve been preoccupied with the situation weve got and want to get more people involved. Quail Heights Country Club superintendent Todd Carter had a similar take. The Lake City Open has always been the best tournament between the two clubs, Carter said. With everything going on, we decided to push it back to get a better turnout for the field. from SEC fatigue might not want to miss that prime-time Nov. 3 three-match in Baton Rouge. The Tide and the Tigers split last season with Bama grabbing Round 2, 21-0 in the BCS title game in New Orleans. The rivalry carried over onto Twitter with sniping between Tide quarterback AJ McCarron and LSU Heisman finalist Tyrann Mathieu in June. I can tell you that no game is won in a Twitter page, LSU coach Les Miles noted. Whats new this year is Big 12 Conference defec-tors Texas A&M and Missouri step into the SEC. Theyll both try to show they belong. Only way youre going to get respect is winning games, OK? Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said. Thats the only way its going to happen. I got no problem with that. Youve got to prove yourself. Here is an overall look at the conference: EAST GEORGIA Key players: QB Aaron Murray, WR Tavarres King, DB Bacarri Rambo, LB Jarvis Jones. Returning starters: 6 offense, 9 defense. Notes : RB Isaiah Crowell is gone. Cornerback Sanders Commings and cornerback Branden Smith and per-haps Rambo face suspen-sions. ... Malcolm Mitchell, last seasons No. 2 receiver, opens at cornerback and will likely play both positions. ... Lightweight nonconference schedule includes Buffalo, Florida Atlantic and Georgia Southern. SOUTH CAROLINA Key players: QB Connor Shaw, RB Marcus Lattimore, DE Jadeveon Clowney, DE Devin Taylor. Returning starters: 7 offense, 6 defense. Notes : A second straight Top 10 finish seems pos-sible. ... If Lattimore returns to pre-knee injury form, it could more than make up for the loss of WR Alshon Jeffery. ... Pass rush remains formidable even minus NFL first-round pick DE Melvin Ingram. FLORIDA Key players: RB Mike Gillislee, WR Andre Dubose, LB Jon Bostic, DL Sharrif Floyd. Returning starters: 7 offense, 10 defense. Notes : Gators try to rebound from mediocre sea-son. ... Brent Pease replac-es offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, and has the personnel to mount a more physical running attack. ... Defensive linemen Ronald Powell and Dominique Easley are trying to return from knee injuries. MISSOURI Key players: QB James Franklin, LT Elvis Fisher, WR Dorial Green-Beckham, CB E.J. Gaines. Returning starters: 6 offense, 7 defense. Notes : The SECs third group of Tigers enters the league hoping to prove skeptics wrong. ... Franklin is expected to be fully recov-ered from spring shoulder surgery after flirting with 3,000-yard passing, 1,000-yard rushing season. ... Its unclear if RB Henry Josey (knee) will play. TENNESSEE Key players: QB Tyler Bray, WR DaRick Rogers, LB A.J. Johnson, LB Herman Lathers. Returning starters: 10 offense, 7 defense. Notes : Derek Dooleys rebuilding project con-tinues after one SEC win last season. ... Volunteers have dangerous receiv-ers but must replace RB Tauren Poole. ... Tennessee reloaded with several JUCO transfers, including onetime Alabama defensive lineman Darrington Sentimore and WR Cordarrelle Patterson. VANDERBILT Key players: QB Jordan Rodgers, RB Zac Stacy, DT Rob Lohr, CB Trey Wilson. Returning starters: 9 offense, 8 defense. KENTUCKY Key players: QB Morgan Newton, OL Larry Warford, WR LaRod King, S Martavius Neloms. Returning start-ers: 6 offense, 5 defense. WEST LSU Key players: QB Zach Mettenberger, CB Tyrann Mathieu, DE Sam Montgomery, DT Bennie Logan. Returning starters: 7 offense, 5 defense. Notes : Mettenberger, a former Georgia player, has drawn strong reviews from coach Les Miles and team-mates and might represent a sizable upgrade at QB. ... Offense has runners galore, led by Spencer Ware and Michael Ford, and offensive line has five players who have logged 102 collective starts. ... Secondary loses Morris Claiborne, but returns stars Mathieu and Eric Reid. ... Ends Montgomery and Barkevious Mingo com-bined for 17 sacks. ... Tigers spent 11 weeks at No. 1 last season. ALABAMA Key players: QB AJ McCarron, C Barrett Jones, LB Nico Johnson, S Robert Lester. Returning starters: 6 offense, 4 defense. Notes : Quest for third national title in four years faces daunting scheduling, including opener with Michigan in Arlington, Texas, and visits to LSU and Arkansas. ... New offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier is unlikely to change pound-before-pass philosophy. ... Defense that topped all four major categories nationally must replace seven starters with 188 combined starts. ARKANSAS Key players: QB Tyler Wilson, RB Knile Davis, WR Cobi Hamilton, LB Alonzo Highsmith. Returning start-ers: 8 offense, 6 defense. AUBURN Key players: QB Kiehl Frazier, WR Emory Blake, DE Corey Lemonier, LB Daren Bates. Returning starters: 7 offense, 9 defense. Notes : Frazier is the odds-on favorite to claim starting job over Clint Moseley. ... Tigers have new coordinators in Scot Loeffler (offense) and Brian VanGorder (defense). ... Two-time 1,000-yard rusher Mike Dyer is gone, and so is Gus Malzahns no-huddle offense. TEXAS A&M Key players: LT Luke Joeckel, RB Christine Michael, WR Ryan Swope, LB Sean Porter. Returning starters: 7 offense, 6 defense. Notes : QB Jameill Showers is apparent lead-er in race to replace Ryan Tannehill, the No. 8 NFL draft pick. ... Coach Kevin Sumlin, whose Houston offenses twice led the nation in total, passing and scoring, brings a fast-paced attack to College Station. ... Top pass rushers Sean Porter and Damontre Moore return from team that led nation in sacks per game. MISSISSIPPI ST Key players: QB Tyler Russell, LG Gabe Jackson, CB Johnthan Banks, LB Cameron Lawrence. Returning starters: 5 offense, 7 defense. Notes : Bulldogs have won back-to-back bowl games for first time since 1999-2000 not to mention three straight Egg Bowls with rival Mississippi. ... Coach Dan Mullen predicts a huge year from Russell. ... Mississippi State 0-12 under Mullen against SEC West teams other than Ole Miss. MISSISSIPPI Key players: WR Donte Moncrief, RB Jeff Scott, DB Charles Sawyer, LB Mike Marry. Returning starters: 7 offense, 7 defense. Notes : Randall Mackey has moved from QB to WR with emergence of Barry Brunetti, JUCO transfer Bo Wallace.
DEAR ABBY: I found out my husband has been corresponding with pros-titutes he picked up when we went on vacation. He emailed them twice, but the second one hurt me the most. He sent her money. I confronted him and was ready to end the marriage, but we have a son. He denied having sexual contact with the women and said he was just flirting, so I forgave him. But I told him I wont tolerate it a third time. He agreed to have marriage counseling and do his part to convince me he will change. Is it worth it to try again for the sake of our son? I dont trust him anymore, but I still love him. -READY TO LET GO DEAR READY : When a man gives money to a hook-er, its usually for a reason. The reason isnt charity; its for services he wants ren-dered. (And they dont take money in arrears.) No one can decide for you whether or not to stay in the marriage, but before making any decisions, make it your first priority to contact your doctor and be checked for STDs. Who knows what your husband might have picked up while flirting. If you do decide to remain in the marriage, youd be wise to schedule regular appointments for STD checkups. DEAR ABBY: I have been meaning to write to you for a long time. Now that we have gone through another year of Mothers Day and Fathers Day, would you PLEASE acknowledge those of us who did NOT have a parent who deserved to be honored? SOME PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BE PARENTS! There are horror stories every day in the media about child abuse, yet you honor these people without qualification. For those who have parents who deserve to be honored, Im happy for you. But the celebration is only salt in the wounds of those of us who wish wed never been born. -ONE OF THEM IN LONGMONT, COLO. DEAR ONE OF THEM: I agree that the commercialization of cer-tain holidays can be painful for those who cannot join in the celebration. This would include children and adults who were abused or neglected by their parents, as well as those who no lon-ger have living parents. I doubt many people remain childless for the public good. Usually there are deeply personal reasons for it. For people who are childless by choice, every day is an affirmation of their decision. However, for those who want children and can-not have them, their loss can be excruciating. DEAR ABBY: Can you give any advice for a male in his 50s who is still a virgin, who is afraid of being inti-mate and hasnt even kissed a girl since high school? Is it OK to live and enjoy life this way, or is sex something that every human should experience? -CURIOUS IN FLORIDA DEAR CURIOUS: If someone is happy and enjoying life having never had sexual relations, then its OK. However, if you are still a virgin because of fear of intimacy, this is something to discuss with a psychologist to help you understand what caused your fear and inability to trust, because you could be getting more out of life than you have settled for. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Get involved in events that motivate you. Pampering, shopping or a day trip will give you a new lease on life.
