The Quinnipiac University poll found that 84 percent of Florida voters back letting adults use medical marijuana if doctors prescribe it. But here’s the rub: Polls in late 2013 and the first part of 2014 also showed support for medical marijuana topping 80 percent. In the November 2014, election, however, a proposed ballot initiative received about 58 percent of the vote — shy of the 60 percent needed to approve constitutional amendments. The numbers plummeted, at least in part, because opponents spent millions of dollars on television ads warning that the ballot initiative included loopholes that could lead to widespread abuse. The group behind the 2014 amendment, People United for Medical Marijuana, has signaled it is willing to put a revised pot initiative before voters in 2016 if lawmakers don’t approve legalization. Republican legislative leaders have largely dismissed the idea of legalizing full-blown medical marijuana, saying they want to focus on moving forward with a 2014 law that allowed a limited type of non-euphoric cannabis for certain medical conditions. People United for Medical Marijuana would need to collect 683,149 petition signatures to get on the 2016 ballot. The POLL continued on 3A Approval pegged at 84 percent, despite loss at ballot box.

Over Easter weekend he visited the All In the Family Barbershop for a haircut, saw the pig races at the Eggstravaganza, and was then off to a photo shoot of folks in their Sunday best at Trinity United Methodist Church. Smith, who turns 50 next month, is documenting American life, but not just anywhere. He is only visiting places and things called “Columbia” — county, city, street, river, ship and more. It’s all part of his project called America By Another Name. Sponsored by Fractured Atlas, a non-profit patron of the arts, along with help from his IndieGoGo campaign, Smith plans to visit 50 ‘Columbias’ spanning 33 states, and record citizens by way of photo, video and text. He estimates the trip will probably last till December. In a way, he will be getting a sense of an “older” America. “During the American Revolution poets and songwriters used it as another name for the United States, for the new country,” said Smith. The name was in common use for quite some time. Until World War I, “Hail Columbia” was the de facto national anthem. Smith’s project started with a basic idea. “I knew that I wanted to do what are called American photos because my heroes have done that,” he said, naming such famed American phoColumbias Smith has already seen1.

Rick Scott reversed course Monday, saying he no longer supports Medicaid expansion as talks break down between Florida and its request for the federal government to extend funds to hospitals that serve low-income patients. Scott wants the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to give Florida about $1 billion in hospital funds, but federal officials have denied that request for about a year, standing firm that the funds will end June 30. Negotiations between state and federal health officials turned ugly last week, with the state sending a series of frenzied statements accusing the feds of walking away from the discussion while a key federal health official was on vacation. Federal health officials said they remain in contact with the state. The negotiations over the hospitals funds, known as the low-income pool, have spilled over to Medicaid. Advocates say the hospi tals wouldn’t need as much federal funding if the state expanded Medicaid to 800,000 Floridians because the hospitals would have more paying customers. The federal government has offered to pay the entire Medicaid expansion bill for the first few years, but Scott and House Republicans are concerned officials will renege. Scott, who started his political career running TV ads against the federal health law, shocked many when he came out in support of Medicaid expansion in 2013 in an emotional speech, calling expansion a compassionate and common sense solution. But he’s backed away in recent years.Gov. Scott reverses course, opposes Medicaid expansion Scott Talks falter on federal funds for hospitals.

2A TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 2015 LOCAL NEWS LAKE CITY REPORTER Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Ocala police officer fatally shot during training MondayOCALA — Officials say a North Florida police officer was fatally shot during a training accident. An Ocala police spokeswoman said in an email that Officer Jared Forsyth was participating in firearms training at the Lowell Correctional Institution shooting range Monday afternoon when the accident occurred. Police say Forsyth was taken to a local hospital in critical condition, where he died from his wounds several hours later. Details about the shooting weren’t immediately released. Sgt. Angy Scroble with the Ocala Police Department said the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the incident. “Due to this, we are not at liberty to discuss the details of the incident at this time, and the other officer involved in not being named at this time,” she said. Officials say the 33-year-old Forsyth joined the Ocala Police Department in April 2012. 7a 1p 7p 1a 6 a LAKE CITY ALMANA C SUN MOON UV INDEX EXTREME: 10 minutes to burn T oday’s ultra-violet radiation risk for the a r ea on a scale f r om 0 to 10+.

Stefani Nugroho, who has witnessed these changes, fielded questions about sexism, religion, economic trends, language, education and a host of other topics while speaking to faculty and students Monday at Florida Gateway College. Nugroho, who has a Ph.D. in sociology from the National University of Singapore, an MA in anthropology from the University of Leuven in Belgium and a BA in psychology from Atma Jaya University in Indonesia where she currently works, is a Fulbright Scholar in residence at Santa Fe College. She is from Indonesia and spent most of Monday speaking to more than 100 people at FGC about Indonesian culture. Nugroho’s topics included gender, family roles, death, war, authority figures, coming of age and spirituality in Indonesia. She said Indonesia is very diverse with a population of more than 250 million people and a multi-ethnic population. Javanese make up the largest ethnic group. More than 50 percent of the people in Indonesia live on the island of Java. Nugroho said there are 706 living languages in Indonesia and most people speak more than one language. “Indonesia is a string of islands with a lot of sea in between, which makes us even more diverse,” she said. “There are more languages than ethnic groups.” With ethnic and racial tensions dying down, a new president taking power and the county’s economy beginning to grow, Nugroho said Indonesia is a country experiencing change. “We just elected a promising president,” she said. “He is not someone from the old regime, not a military man, but just appeared quickly on the political scene. He’s a businessman, furniture exporter, used to be governor of Jakarta and he’s promising in the sense he’s very pragmatic and hands-on. His vice-governor is ChineseChristian and that’s unimaginable. Five years ago how would you get people to approve that, but they did.” Clay Smith, Santa Fe College associate professor, said Nugroho was at FGC through the Fulbright Scholar Program. Nugroho was speaking at FGC as part of the program’s outreach. Smith said Nugroho has gone to other conferences including one in New York and one in Oklahoma. Nugroho has been at Santa Fe College since August and is leaving in May. She has primarily been a teacher during her visit. The trip to Florida is her first trip to America and she said she’s learned that all the stereotypes about Americans are not true. “I was surprised at how friendly you guys are,” she said. “There was fear, I’m not welcome in the U.S., but you’re friendly. ... That shifted my idea about the U.S. That’s what I’m going to tell when I get back, don’t be scared.” Scripture of the Day Move to the rhythm of your soul, and you’ll never miss a beat. — Vicki Virk, co-founder of Non Stop Bhangra & Dholrhythms Dance Company “My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.” — 1 John 3:18-21 See an error? Thought for Today The Lake City Reporter corrects errors of fact in news items.

There was a very rich vein of culture to mine here.” Smith, who has been published in magazines such as American Art Collector magazine, American Fine Art, and Western Art Collector, plans to document every aspect of “Columbian” life, from the rich to the poor, to the rural and the urban. He described an incident from Monday morning, in which he chatted with a family who was stopped briefly in our community headed south from Ohio, paired in two cars, with little in the way of resources. “I’ll meet someone and I’ll be like, that’s a cool expression of American life and let me...photograph that.” Smith said. He plans to visit more Columbias soon, including the M/V Columbia, a ferry used to travel around southeastern Alaska. It’s a commuting ship, and it’s just the right opportunity to meet more Americans. Another stop is the USS Columbia, a U.S. Navy cruiser stationed in Pearl Harbor, where Smith will photograph sailors during their off time. Besides the history of the name “Columbia,” Smith is adamant that the project is about the people. He is throwing himself into the mix, with an artistic temperament that was developed in his hometown of Westport, Connecticut. “I’m very grateful for that, because it was a town that really valued the arts,” said Smith, who now lives in New York. “I was very much encouraged when I was growing up in being a young artist.” That spirit will serve him well, and as Smith tells of getting used to camping out in his mini-van, and dealing with settings that are completely out of his element (“NASCAR races,” he laughed), he’s still smiling. This experience will allow him to show others an America they might not see otherwise. “So much happens to me in a day,” said Smith. “It’s not like I know where I’m going to be going that day necessarily, it all just unfolds.” COLUMBIAContinued From 1A state Division of Elections website indicates the group had not submitted any valid signature as of Monday morning. The Connecticut-based Quinnipiac frequently conducts polls in Florida and other states. The latest poll of 1,087 Florida voters was conducted from March 17 to March 28. “Our priority is to cut more than $600 million in taxes this session and get K-12 education funding up to record levels while holding the line on college tuition. We still have several weeks left for budget negotiations; however, given that the federal government said they would not fund the federal LIP program to the level it is funded today, it would be hard to understand how the state could take on even more federal programs that CMS could scale back or walk away from,” Scott said in a statement. The growing feud has flustered Tallahassee lawmakers as they try to finalize a new budget before the session ends May 1. City to install new water main MEDICAIDContinued From 1A POLLContinued From 1ABy EMILY BUCHANANebuchanan@lakecityreporter.comA request for the City of Lake City to enter into an agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for the installation of an 18-inch water main that would extend down SE Baya Drive from US 100 to SE Llewellyn Avenue was adopted during Monday night’s city council meet-ing. The agreement included the first phase of the “Water Main Project,” a project that would help recover an esti-mated 47 percent of water pressure back to the down-town and northern areas of the city. The project will be completed in two or three phases, and the first phase will cost the city an estimat-ed $477,037. The request for the agreement was brought before the city Utility Advisory Committee, and was recommended for approval as the downtown and northern areas of the city lost approximately 59 percent of flow as well as 18 PSI within the system due to the existing 20-inch water main. “In the agreement, the DOT would run the [pipe] line with their contract if we pay the bill,” said City Councilman George Ward, who is also the chairman of the committee. “This is going to save the city count-less dollars.” Once the project is com-pleted, the 18-inch potable water transmission main would run directly from the current 20-inch main on SE Academic Avenue and connection to the 12-inch water main on SE Llewellyn Avenue, which would even-tually extend to the water treatment plant out near Florida Gateway College, Ward said. “To do this project as the city, we would have to buy right of ways from private properties that surround the existing roads,” Ward said. “The DOT would be able to use the center lane for construction and we wouldn’t have to cut into people’s driveways.” Steven Roberts, the city’s executive utilities director, brought the proposal to the advisory committee’s attention Monday evening and said the project should be under construction by August. The funds for the proj-ect are being taken from the city’s account of unused cash from previous years, Roberts said. “In approximately two and a half to three years, we should have this water main installed without a heavy hit on the budget,” Roberts said. “That’s what brought us to this conclu-sion. They’re [DOT] willing to do this work and they’re recommending they do this work because they know the road.” In other business, the city council: Announced National Healthcare Decisions Day will be on April 16, 2015. Approved a permit application for the Derby Dash Charity Fund Event for Haven Hospice sched-uled for Saturday, May 2, from 6 a.m.-4 p.m. Enacted to grant Florida Power & Light Company a 30-year non-ex-clusive electric service fran-chise agreement to provide the city and its citizens with electric services. Voted to raise the amount of the Redevelopment Revenue Note from $1,200,000 to $1,312,000. Announced that Affinity Construction, LLC submitted the best respon-sive bid for renovations to the Teen Town Recreation Center and will authorize the city to enter into an agreement with the compa-ny to perform all the work required by and in accor-dance with the bid docu-ments for a lump sum pay-ment of $50,487.38. Voted to authorize the city to enter into a Union Employment Agreement with Local No. 2288 of the International Association of Firefighters. Voted to declare cer-tain property owned by the city to be obsolete, non-serviceable or beyond economic repair and has no sale or salvage value, and authorized the city to remove such property from the fixed assets.


T here are people in New York City who want to frighten, attack, maim and kill. If our concerns about that are often vague, they were given names and faces Thursday. Two Queens women — both U.S. citizens — were charged with planning to build a bomb they hoped to detonate at an event big enough to make headlines around the world. Reportedly calling themselves “citizens of the Islamic State,” they allegedly plotted about the best places to unleash their home made hell — rejecting Herald Square as filled with just “normal people” and instead debating the relative merits of a high-profile event like Boston’s marathon versus the packed funeral of an NYPD officer slain in the line of duty. According to the FBI’s complaint, Noelle Velentzas, 28, and Asia Siddiqui, 31, purchased propane tanks, fertilizer and potassium glu conate — all useful for large explo sions. They allegedly acquired the ingredients not via weapons dealers, but in the local hardware store and the neighborhood pharmacy, in the aisles where many of us shop. Investigations into possible ter rorist plots in NYC — even arrests — now happen fairly often. Those who have been charged seem to range from deadly serious and on the verge of acting on their plans to some who are utterly incompetent and vague about goals. But these women seem to fall in the middle of that spectrum, as “aspirational” but “closer to operational,” a law enforcement source told amNewYo rk. This plot is unusually unsettling. These are young women, former roommates living in NYC’s most diverse borough, who were free to enjoy the goodness this nation offers. Yet, they were obsessed with killing its people. “She’s always been a nice lady, appeared to be a good mother,” a neighbor said of Velentzas, who walked her daughter to and from school every day. “She didn’t appear to be political.” The charges unveiled by U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch in Brooklyn should make us worry. We can’t be consumed with fear, but must not forget the threat.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Emily Lawson, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman Q NewsdayA train wreck for GOPL ast week the Republican Party found yet another way to cre ate a public relations pile-up. It happened because Republican legislatures in con servative states — first Indiana, then Arkansas — passed bills that would permit private citizens to withhold services from same-sex couples who want to marry. In their zeal, the legislators caused their party’s bandwagon to collide with itself at the politically worst possible place — the intersection of the GOP’s evangelical and socially conservative power base and the party’s message that it can deliver economic prosperity. When collisions happen at this intersection, nobody wins. That’s because influential stakeholders — including national convention planners, large corporations and chambers of commerce — will turn on a dime at the first sign of this de facto discrimination, and they will pound the same Republican pols whose campaigns they have funded until they relent. And the pols will yield, every time. That’s what happened last week, first in Indiana, then in Arkansas. In Indiana, the very conservative Republican Gov. Mike Pence, who’d built a repu tation as a smart, principled pol, repeatedly stumbled, bumbled and fumbled on national televi sion. Mainly because his top pri ority seemed to be not offending his political base, which opposes gay and lesbian marriages. On March 26, the governor signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law in a rath er odd victory celebration — odd in that it was closed to the press, as if maybe nobody would notice it. The bill seemed to have been carefully crafted to provide a way for private citizens such as flo rists, bakers and photographers to withhold services from same-sex couples seeking homosexual marriages. Beaming over Pence’s left shoulder as he signed the bill was Eric Miller, head of social ly conservative lobbying group called Advance America. Miller helped enact last year’s ban on gay marriages (later ruled uncon stitutional) and then did the same for this new bill. It was similar to one President Bill Clinton signed into law and 19 other states enact ed. Except Indiana’s bill, which carefully makes no mention of sexual preference, added a new provision that seemed to protect private individuals or concerns if they choose to withhold a service on the grounds that it would sig nificantly “burden” their religious faith. Also, they would get this legal protection even if no gov ernment entity is involved in a complaint. Miller’s Advance America web site celebrated the bill signing by asserting: “Christian bakers, florists and photographers should not be punished for refusing to participate in a homosexual mar riage!” Miller said the new law would help protect “Christian businesses and individuals from those who want to punish them because of their Biblical beliefs!” Meanwhile, Pence, who has often lavished praise upon Miller and his group, maintained the new law doesn’t discriminate. On ABC News’ Sunday-morning program “This Week,” George Stephanopoulos repeatedly asked Pence to give a yes or no answer to questions about whether Indiana’s new law would allow a florist to withhold flowers from a same-sex couple’s wedding. Pence refused but insisted the law doesn’t discriminate. By Tuesday, even the Indianapolis-based National Collegiate Athletic Association was suggesting it might yank its basketball championship out of the state. Indianapolis’ Republican mayor and conservative newspa per were demanding Pence and the legislature “fix” the new law. And Pence relented and vowed to get the law he’d just signed fixed. But he repeatedly blamed the whole debacle on the national news media for misunderstanding the decency of the new law. Meanwhile, down in Arkansas, a wisp of good news finally emerged, just as it seemed Arkansas was rushing to repli cate the Indiana nightmare. After Arkansas’ legislature approved a bill much like Indiana’s and after Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson put out word he’d sign it into law — something different (see also: not-dumb) happened. Maybe it was seeing Pence’s pitiful pratfalls on national TV. And maybe it was that Walmart, the mega-corporation based in Arkansas, issued a statement warning the Arkansas’ bill “threatens to undermine the spirit of inclusion” Walmart values. Hutchinson stunned the polit ical bookies by sending the bill back to the legislature for some rewrite and rethink. Or maybe just to make it read more like the one Bill Clinton signed as presi dent. Whatever. After that wreck of a week Republicans just caused themselves in Indiana, even a mere teachable moment began to look like a buzzer-beating Final Four slam-dunk. So long, Harry Alleged Isis plot a sobering reminder Martin SchramMcClatchy-Tribune News Service Q Martin Schram is a veteran Washington journalist, author and TV documentary executive. Readers may send him email at H arry Reid’s decision to retire after 32 years in the House and Senate, 10 of them as the leader of the Democrats in the Senate, is good news not only for Republicans, but also for everyone else saddened by the deteriora tion of political rhetoric. “Politics ain’t beanbag,” as Mr. Dooley said, and good advice it is, but Mr. Reid practiced unsubstan tiated personal attacks and guilt by association that would make Joe McCarthy, wherever he is, blush deep red. He boasted to CNN that in the world where he lives, the end does indeed justify the means. When a reporter asked him whether he had lied, as Republicans said he did in 2012, when he named “an unnamed source” who told him that Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes for 10 years, and indignantly demanded that Mr. Romney prove the charge untrue, Mr. Reid replied, “Well, they can call it whatever they want. Romney didn’t win, did he?” Mr. Reid made his reputation not just as an attack dog — there are such hounds in both parties — but as someone with no reluctance to lie when he thinks it’s to the advantage of himself and his party. He turned a notoriously tough but sometimes hon orable trade into a dishonorable one. His colleagues not only allowed him to do so but also encouraged him to do so, which says more about his colleagues than it does about him. He has succeeded in avoiding the investigation he deserves, or an indictment like that last week of Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey, his Democratic col league. Mr. Reid, unlike Mr. Menendez, is a staunch Obama ally, which is convenient. The Public Integrity Section of Eric Holder’s Justice Department worked tirelessly to indict Mr. Menendez (who is innocent until a court says otherwise), but it blocked a corrup tion investigation of Mr. Reid, as if afraid of what an investigation would turn up. Mr. Reid’s career, from the beginning, has includ ed major and minor ethical lapses that he has man aged to ignore, explain away or persuade friends in high places to cover up for him. He has benefited from investments he enhanced with earmarks, engaged in insider training and channeled cam paign funds to relatives. When he wasn’t collecting boodle or poisoning the political conversation, he was throwing spitballs at the United States Senate, once “the world’s greatest deliberative body.” There has been little deliberation in Mr. Reid’s Senate. He stifled debate, prevented anything he didn’t like from coming to the floor for debate and emasculated the committee system. The Republican call for a return to “the regular order” is meant to salve the wounds inflicted by Mr. Reid and to restore the Senate to its historic role. Some men go into politics to do good and instead do well; his record demonstrates that doing good is never a priority. His decision to take his gains, as if winnings from a crooked roulette table, and leave while he can, is reason for celebration. The cym bals should clash, the flutes should sing and the tin horns should get in their work. Happy days will be here again.Q Washington Times

Lake City Reporter Lake City Reporter Lake City Reporter SPORTS Tuesday, April 7, 2015 Section B Story ideas?ContactJordan Kroeger or Eric By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressAUGUSTA, Ga. — Tiger Woods arrived later than usual Monday for a Masters that is different from all the others he has played. No one was sure what to expect from him. Woods offered a quick glimpse that it could be just about anything. He hooked his tee shot so far left that it nearly went into the ninth fairway. And then he hit a shot to about 6 feet and rolled in the putt for birdie. More relevant than any of his shots — including his chipping, which looked fine — was the atmosphere. The first official day of practice at Augusta National was filled with warmth and optimism for the first major of the year. Rory McIlroy, No. 1 in the world and going for a career Grand Slam, played 18 holes with British Amateur champion Bradley Neil. Steve Stricker is playing for the first time all year. Jason Day took four hours on the back nine alone, letting groups through so he could chip and putt, the key to win-ning a green jacket. And then Woods arrived. Fans ran to the side of the practice area when his cart pulled up, with one man holding a digital cam-era high above his head for a picture. Fittingly, Woods headed straight for the chipping area and went through two bags of balls before heading to the first tee with Mark O’Meara. Woods is playing for the first time since Feb. 5. He was off nearly five months when he returned at the Masters in 2010 following the scandal in his personal life, but he was No. 1 in the world back then. His last competition was a victory in the Australian Masters. Now he is No. 111. In his last tournament this year, he walked off the course at Torrey Pines after 11 holes. Before that, he shot 82 and missed the cut in the Phoenix Open. In both events, he played 47 holes and hit chips that either didn’t reach the green from 5 yards away or went some 25 yards over the green. That’s when he stepped away, saying his game was not acceptable and he would not return until it was. The real test comes Thursday, when the shots count. What he showed Monday certainly looked acceptable, and it was a treat for the fans who nor-mally would be headed home after a long day at Augusta. The first hole was packed when Woods and O’Meara teed off at 4:20 p.m., and more than 2,000 kept following him. Dozens of fans raced over from the second fairway to the fourth tee to get a good spot. Remember, you’re not supposed run at Augusta National. “I hope he’s happy. I hope he’s fine,” U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer said. “I hope he will play well this week. But what would bother me a lot is all the speculation. You don’t have a choice. You will read about it somewhere. You will hear about it because you socialize with people. So mentally, it must be quite exhausting, and we know how important the mental part is in golf.” “So it’s difficult, and some things I don’t find very fair,” he said. “You should just let him be. Let him play golf, what he likes to do.” The last image of Woods was the best player of his generation at his worst, especially with the chip-ping. That led to ram-pant speculation — some coaches, including former swing coach Hank Haney, said he had the yips. He was said to be practicing hard at home in Florida. When he showed up at Augusta National last week to practice, one report said he shot 74. Another said he was playing better than ever at home.

The Tigers (7-10, 3-2) in in their most pivotal game yet, try to avoid losing their fourth-straight when they arrive in Orange Park tonight to face Oakleaf (8-7, 4-2). The Tigers have struggled away from home this season (1-7), but could earn their biggest road win yet Tuesday night. Both teams had to be separated after Columbia 4-3 comeback win last month, and you can expect another heated district bout, though this time played on the Knights’ turf. The win over Oakleaf on March 6 was arguably the Tigers’ best this season, but they haven’t had much to cheer about since their brawl suspension. With only two weeks remaining in the regular season, CHS is in need of a jolt before the district tour-nament begins — no better opportunity than tonight. Oakleaf and CHS both look to bounce back after tough losses at home. Creekside dominated the Knights 11-4 while Hamilton County upset the Tigers 3-0 last week.

Fort White hasn’t lost at home since March 5 and arrives in Alachua aiming for its eighth-straight victory. “We had spring break last week so hopefully we get back focused,” Indians head coach Rick Julius said. “Any time you take a couple days off your normal routine you’re going to be a little rusty.” The Indians will need to shake it off quick-ly though against a rival squad looking for revenge. Fort White (11-5, 6-2) comes into the contest fresh off a convincing 82 win over district P.K. Yonge while the Raiders (10-8, 4-4) attempt to bounce back after losing to Williston last week.

Tyus Jones scored 23 points, his good buddy and freshman teammate Jahlil Okafor added a couple of key baskets in the clos-ing minutes, and the Blue Devils beat Wisconsin 68-63 on Monday night to give coach Mike Krzyzewski his fifth national champi-onship. The Blue Devils took the lead for the first time since it was 29-28 on a 3-pointer by Grayson Allen, who came off the bench to score 16 points. After the Badgers regained the lead on back-to-back bas-kets by Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker, the Blue Devils stormed away. Jones started it with a basket, and Okafor — mired in foul trouble all game — returned to the floor to score the next two hoops. By the time Jones knocked down a 3-pointer with 1:10 to go, the Blue Devils had pushed their lead to 66-58 and the cel-ebration was starting in the stands. Wisconsin tried to foul its way back into the game in the final minute, but Jones added two more free throws with 34.9 seconds remain-ing to seal the victory. Jones and Okafor have known each other since playing for USA Basketball, and decided together to attend Duke. Their goal was to win a national championship — and now they have it. Kaminsky, the AP player of the year, finished with 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Badgers, seeking their first title since 1941. Dekker added 12 points and eight boards.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 2015 3B DEAR ABBY: When I turned 25, after consider ing it for years, I went to my doctor and told him I wanted to become sterile. I got a vasectomy two months later. I haven’t had any regrets, and now at 27, I’m still firmly convinced that I don’t want children — ever. I started dating a woman a year ago, “Anita,” who told me that if she never had kids, she could live with it. I felt lucky to have found someone who would be OK with no kids. I have had a few issues with Anita. When she gets upset from time to time, she says that if she stays with me, she will never have kids. I know she cares for me deeply, but I also believe she feels con flicted about giving up the chance to be a mother. Do you think it’s fair for me to pursue this relation ship and hope that even tually she’ll come to terms with not having children with me? Or should I end the relationship so she can find someone who shares her desire to become a parent? I worry that if I end it, it may take years before I find someone who shares my wish to never be a parent. — NO KIDS IN COLORADO DEAR NO KIDS: You have been upfront with Anita. She understands that you do not want chil dren, and that you have taken steps to ensure it won’t happen. She’s cor rect that if she stays with you, she will never have any. For both your sakes, the two of you need to talk this through once and for all, because if Anita is ambiva lent about forgoing moth erhood, she does need to find another life partner. And you need to let her do that. DEAR ABBY: It hap pened to me again yester day. After I had been wait ing patiently at the counter of a large department store, another woman came up and stood beside me. The clerk walked over and immediately began to ring up the other woman’s purchase. I said, “I was here first!” Both the clerk and the woman apologized, but because the sale had already begun, the sales clerk completed it and I was left waiting. I am angry about it. I feel stores should have a queue where you get in line in order, or clerks should be instructed to ask, “Who was here first?” I don’t want to believe I was passed over because the other woman looked more prosperous than I do, but she was buying a very expensive handbag, while I was purchasing socks that were on clearance. How should that be handled in the future? — SHOPPER IN KENTUCKY DEAR SHOPPER: If you have a complaint about service, it should be addressed to the store manager. A well-trained retail salesperson would have asked which of you was there first. The amount you were spending should have made no dif ference. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I travel with another couple. I furnish the vehi cle and do all the driving. How should we share the expenses? — EASY RIDER IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA DEAR EASY RIDER: The other couple should pay for half the gas and their own meals and lodg ing. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Excess will be your downfall. Say no to people who are too demanding. Changes may not be to your liking, but if you’re patient and will ing to put in a little more effort, you will reach your goal. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your strong, dependable nature will be appreciated, but don’t feel you have to pay for others when you cannot afford to do so. Pride will turn into a costly situation. Romance is highlighted, but don’t jeopardize your reputation. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let criticism get in the way of a healthy relationship with someone you work or deal with daily. Put a difference of opinion aside and focus on what needs to be accomplished. You can bring about change and make a difference. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): A creative project will turn out bet ter than you anticipated. Love is on the rise, and an expression of your emotions will pay off. Your changing attitude will attract an interesting candidate who will lead to a unique partnership. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll face opposition at home if you make prom ises you can’t keep. To avoid an emotional dispute, include everyone in your plans. A trip or social event will change the way you view life. A new direction looks inviting. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll discover valu able information if you research, attend a con ference or ask an expert about the personal chang es you want to embark on. You will attract positive attention from some one who interests you. Romance is on the rise, and a commitment can be made. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Money problems will surface if you spend on aesthetics or luxury items that you don’t need. A change in the way you view someone can be expected. Don’t make a fuss; just try to keep the peace. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Use your emotions to express the way you feel. Take a unique approach to divulging your interests or secrets to someone you want to spend more time with, and it could lead to a new adventure. Stick to your budget. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Ask ques tions and get the lowdown on a festering situation before you make your move. Time is on your side, and positive results can be yours if you listen carefully to determine your best course of action. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Listen and learn. Back away from anyone who appears to be unpredictable or inconsis tent. Focus on home, family and the people you know you can trust. Romance will result in an improved per sonal life and a more stable future. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t over react. It will be a waste of time and cause you to miss out on an opportunity that looks promising. Changes to work, money and partnerships will lead to advancement and security. Don’t let an emotional situ ation hold you back. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Re-evaluate your current position. Financial gains can be made if you are innovative in the way you approach an interview, project or revised budget. Invest in yourself, your skills and your future. Romance and personal improvements are on the rise. +++ Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Man who doesn’t want children should look for another woman Q Write Dear Abby at or P.O.

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 2015 6B By STEVEN WINEAssociated PressMIAMI — Even before Dee Gordon went face down leaving the batter’s box, the Miami Marlins looked like a flop in their season opener against the Atlanta Braves. The sellout crowd’s mood soured in the second inning when the game was halted for 16 minutes because of rain — a first at 3-year-old Marlins Park, which has a retractable roof. The result-ing wet track subsequently cost the Marlins at least twice on the bases, and they lost to Atlanta 2-1. Marlins president David Samson took the blame for leaving the roof open too long, saying the rain was unexpected. “This will be my last game with the Marlins,” Samson said jokingly. “I’ve enjoyed my 14 seasons here.” Two Atlanta relievers combined to escape a bases-loaded, none-out jam in the seventh, and new closer Jason Grilli pitched a per-fect ninth for the rebuilding Braves. They traded All-Star closer Craig Kimbel in their latest deal to San Diego on Sunday. The Marlins have hopes of ending an 11-year play-off drought following an uncharacteristic offseason spending spree, but little went right for the home team. The rain delay was an unwelcome public rela-tions setback for unpopular owner Jeffrey Loria, whose franchise has struggled to win the favor of fans. They booed when play was halted while the roof closed, and the rain had a lingering effect. With Miami trailing 2-1, speedy new-comer Gordon appeared to have a chance at a bunt single in the eighth inning, but he stumbled leaving the batter’s box, tumbled and became an easy out. Manager Mike Redmond blamed the damp dirt. “When you close that roof down, it doesn’t dry,” he said. “I’m sure that had a lot to do with it.” Gordon, who led the majors in steals last year, was also thrown out trying to swipe second in the third inning. “Wet track,” Gordon said. “Didn’t slide as well as I could have. It didn’t work out.” Braves newcomer Nick Markakis drove in both of their runs. Julio Teheran (1-0) allowed eight hits but only one run in six-plus innings. The Marlins’ Henderson Alvarez (0-1) gave up two runs in seven innings and scored their only run. Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton went 1 for 4 and made a baserunning mis-take in the fourth, when he was thrown out trying to go from first to third on a two-out single. “It’s just one game,” Stanton said, “but when you lose games mentally rather than by a play it’s differ-ent, and that’s how we lost today for sure.” The game was Stanton’s first since his beaning Sept. 11 — and since he signed a record $325 million, 13-year contract. Rain delay booed, Marlins lose to season opener to Braves 2-1 for Fort White when the Indians hosted them on March 13, routing the Raiders 5-0. Senior ace Rhett Willis, who starred in the shutout outing, will be back on the mound for the Indians. The two road matches between Santa Fe and Union County Thursday set up a highly anticipated rematch between Julius’s alma mater and district leader, Keystone Heights, Friday. “They have a great ball team,” Julius said. “It’s always fun to play (Keystone). They haven’t lost any district games. Were waiting on a great opportunity to play them.” But it won’t get any easier as Keystone hosts Fort White this time after defeating the Indians 2-0 February 27. The Indians try to hand the Raiders their fourth-straight loss. “We had a good practice so hopefully we’ll be ready to come out and play,” Julius said. “Eliminate errors, throw strikes and make contact and good things will happen.” The simple recipe has fueled the Indians to its longest winning streak in recent memory. Lady Indians SoftballFort White faces Chiefland on the road tonight. The Lady Indian sattempt to split the season series. Chiefland won 2-0 February 19. STREAK Continued From Page 1B Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS — As Kentucky coach John Calipari started to leave the Naismith Hall of Fame interview room Monday, he took one last question. “Coach, what do you think of the four-year rule?” Spencer Haywood shouted. “You screwed it up for us,” Calipari answered. Now the man who paved the way for underclassmen to enter the NBA draft and the coach who has thrived with today’s top one-and-done players will be for-ever linked: Calipari and Haywood are among this year’s 11-person class, with induction ceremo-nies at the hall to be held Sept. 10-12 in Springfield, Massachusetts. There is enough star power to appeal to all gen-erations. Younger fans might embrace the selections of former WNBA star Lisa Leslie of four-time NBA defensive player of the year Dikembe Mutombo. Leslie won two league titles, three league MVP awards and four Olympic gold medals. Mutombo led the NBA in blocks for five consecutive seasons, famously wagging his fin-ger to celebrate along the way. More experienced fans will appreciate the elec-tion of Louie Dampier, an Indianapolis native who made seven All-Star teams in the ABA after starring at Kentucky. Also selected were Jo Jo White, the former Kansas star who won two titles with the Celtics, and for-mer Boston coach Tom Heinsohn, who becomes the fourth member of the hall to be inducted twice. Heinsohn was selected as a player in 1986 and is now going in as a coach, thanks to the veterans committee. Longtime referee Dick Bavetta and former col-lege coach and television commentator George Raveling also were elect-ed along with Australian coach and player Lindsay Gaze. And John Isaacs, a star pro player before the NBA was formed, will be inducted posthumously as the representative of the early African-American pioneers committee. Then there is Haywood, whose NBA career included 14,592 points, 7,038 rebounds and a league title in 1980 with the Lakers. But his legacy goes far beyond that. A standout at the University of Detroit, Haywood decided to turn pro after his sophomore year but NBA rules at that point required play-ers to wait four years after high school. He headed to Denver in the ABA, where he was the MVP, and then joined the Seattle SuperSonics despite the NBA’s rule. The subse-quent court fight went all the way to the Supreme Court, which ruled against the league in a decision that cleared the way for underclassmen — and one-and-dones — to play in the NBA. “There is a real sense of pride in it because of all my sacrifice,” Haywood said, explaining how he once was offered a con-tract not to play if he would just wait another year to comply with the NBA’s rules. “Most times, guys look at me and say ‘What did he do?’” Calipari didn’t need a refresher course about how Haywood -or Kentucky -helped him reach the Hall of Fame. He led Massachusetts and Memphis to Final Fours before landing with the Wildcats. There, thanks to a plethora of NBA prospects who have left school early, Calipari has taken Kentucky to four Final Fours in the past five years, won the 2012 national championship, and had Kentucky within two games of becoming the first men’s team in major college basketball to complete a perfect sea-son. That quest ended Saturday with Kentucky’s loss to Wisconsin. Without his young stars, or his ties to Big Blue Nation, Calipari might not have made it. “I always wanted to have a job like the other guys,” Calipari said. “I had noth-ing against Massachusetts or Memphis, but you were always kind of at the little table and it left me won-dering what would happen if I got one of those jobs. ... I’ll say it again, if I don’t get hired by Kentucky, I don’t know (if I make it), maybe.” Calipari, Haywood top list of Hall of Fame selections COURTESYBig mouthEarl Jonas poses with his newly-caught 10.5 lbs bass Th e fisherman reeled in the fish from an area lake.
