Agents heard the young man from Phoenix talk about fighting nonbelievers for Allah. About plans to travel to South Africa and link up with â€œbrothersâ€ in Somalia. About using school as a cover story for traveling overseas. Simpson was arrested in 2010, one day before authorities say he planned to leave for South Africa. But despite more than 1,500 hours of recorded conversations, the government prosecuted him on only one minor charge â€” lying to a federal agent. Years spent investigating Simpson for terrorism ties resulted in three years of probation. He also was ordered to pay $600 in fines and court fees.

At the age of 4, the average child is learning how to pedal a tricycle, use a fork and count to 10. Most donâ€™t worry about where their next meal will come from or whether a bomb will be dropped on the makeshift camp their family is hiding in. For Aina Ozols, who was a 4-year-old living in the Soviet Union-occupied Latvia in the 1940s, these were real worries, and her life was very, very far from average. Now, living in Columbia County as the secretary of the local Farm Bureau branch, she sees her experiences as blessings that taught her to appreciate what the United States of America has to offer. â€œItâ€™s not something you can put into a few words. Itâ€™s a feeling,â€ she said. â€œI was there, afraid for my life, and now Iâ€™m here, and there is freedom to come and go as I wish as long as I pay my way.â€ Since the Soviets gained control of her country in August 1940, Ozols said life for all Latvians had become very grim. Those civilians who survived the mass murders faced threats of being sent to a Soviet prison camp in Siberia. Those who werenâ€™t sent away were forced to work. All agricultural properties in the country, including Ozolsâ€™ familyâ€™s farm, were confiscated and turned into a government-owned collective to be operated by civilians. â€œWe were working on our own property, except it wasnâ€™t our property anymore,â€ Ozols said. â€œThey had gathered up anyone and G.B.

2A TUESDAY, MAY 5, 2015 DAILY BRIEFING LAKE CITY REPORTER Page Editor: Eleanor Ransburg, 754-0424 Royal baby is named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana LONDON Â— ItÂ’s a name that immediately evokes British royal his tory: Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Prince William and his wife, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, on Monday announced the name they picked for BritainÂ’s new born princess, a choice seen as a tribute to both Prince WilliamÂ’s parents and grandmother, the queen, as well as a link to KateÂ’s family. The princess, the sec ond child of William and Kate, will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, royal officials said. The birth of Princess Charlotte marks a new chapter for William and Kate, widely seen as the monarchyÂ’s most modern, popular couple. But the names they chose are firmly rooted in royal fam ily history. Charlotte, the feminine form of Charles, appears to be a nod to the newbornÂ’s grandfa ther, Prince Charles. The babyÂ’s middle names honor Queen Elizabeth II, the infantÂ’s 89-year-old great-grandmother, and the late Princess Diana, WilliamÂ’s mother and the babyÂ’s grandmother. Charlotte also features in KateÂ’s family, as the middle name of her sister, Pippa Middleton. The newborn princess is fourth in line to the throne. 7a 1p 7p 1a 6a LAKE CITY ALMANAC SU N MOO N UV INDEX EXTREME : 10 minutes to bur n T odayÂ’s ultra-violet radiation risk for the ar ea on a scale fr om 0 to 10+ .

Rick ScottÂ’s fight against the Obama administration to free billions of federal hospital dollars even if the states donÂ’t expand Medicaid. The three Republican governors want an extension on federal funds that help hospitals that care for uninsured and Medicaid patients. But the federal government wants states to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, arguing itÂ’s more efficient to give people money to help buy health insurance than to pay hospi tals for caring for the uninsured retroac tively. Scott filed a lawsuit last month alleg ing that federal officials are coercing the state to expand Medicaid to get $1 billion in federal hospital funds. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback said Monday he plans to file an amicus brief and condemned the federal government from cutting off health care dollars Â“in an effort to force Obamacare upon the states.Â” Â“In joining with Florida and Texas, Kansas is protecting the statesÂ’ right to make their own determinations about these issues,Â” Brownback said in a state ment. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott also has said he will support ScottÂ’s litigation. Scott said Monday heÂ’d spoken on the phone with his Texas counterpart. The governors are using a 2012 U.S. Supreme Court decision that the federal government canÂ’t coerce states to expand Medicaid, which is exactly what they say the Obama administration is doing by withholding hospital funds. But legal experts say that Supreme Court case doesnÂ’t necessarily apply. ThatÂ’s because the hospital funds are part of an optional program, and the federal government has broad discretion over it. The Sunshine State filed the first law suit against the Affordable Care Act and was eventually joined by about two dozen other states. Only nine states get the low-income pool hospital funds. FloridaÂ’s is the first to expire on June 30, but other states are watching closely as the federal govern ment has said the guidelines it uses to decide in the Florida case will be used in other states. The states say they donÂ’t want to expand a broken Medicaid system, even though they could take federal dollars and tailor it to a program that expands health insurance by giving recipients money to purchase private insurance. But Republicans remain staunchly opposed to taking any federal funds tied to the presi dentÂ’s health overhaul law. FloridaÂ’s House abruptly adjourned three days early last week because of the stalemate. Scripture of the Day Faith makes all things possible. Hope makes all things work. Love makes all things beautiful.

He has been recognized throughout his career for his efforts in the industry and has been the recipient of the Florida Golf Course Superintendents Association Distinguished Service Award, among other accolades. FGCContinued From 1A Louden, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected. She pronounced dead at the scene by Suwannee County EMS, FHP said. One-year-old Sophia Avail Dixon was improperly secured in a child safety seat, according to FHP, and suffered minor injuries. She was transported to UF Health Shands for treatment. CRASHContinued From 1A whom authorities identified as Simpson and Nadir Soofi opened fire in a Dallas suburb on a security officer stationed outside the contest. The deliberately provocative contest had been expected to draw outrage from the Muslim community. According to main stream Islamic tradition, any physical depiction of the Prophet Muhammad â€” even a respectful one â€” is considered blasphemous, and drawings similar to those featured at the Texas event have sparked violence around the world. Simpson and Soofi were wearing body armor, and one shot the guard in the leg. The officer returned fire and struck both men, killing them. The guard was treated for his injury at a hospital and released. Simpson, described as quiet and devout, had been on the radar of law enforcement because of his social media presence, but authorities did not have an indication that he was plotting an attack, said one federal official familiar with the investigation. Less was known about Soofi, who had no criminal record, according to a search of federal court records. Simpson had worshipped at the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix for about a decade, but he quit showing up over the past two or three months, the president of the mosque told The Associated Press. A convert to Islam, Simpson first attracted the FBIâ€™s attention in 2006 because of his ties to Hassan Abu Jihaad, a former U.S. Navy sailor who had been arrested in Phoenix and was ultimately convicted of terrorismrelated charges, according to court records. Jihaad was accused of leaking details about his shipâ€™s movements to operators of a website in London that openly espoused violent jihad against the U.S. In the fall of that year, the FBI asked one of its informants, Dabla Deng, a Sudanese immigrant, to befriend Simpson and ask for advice about Islam. Deng had been working as an FBI informant since 2005 and was instructed to tell Simpson he was a recent convert to the religion. Over the next few years, Deng would tape his conversations with Simpson with a hidden recording device, accumulating more than 1,500 hours of conversations, according to court records. â€œIâ€™m telling you, man, we can make it to the battlefield,â€ Simpson is recorded saying on May 29, 2009. â€œItâ€™s time to roll.â€ In court, prosecutors presented only 17 minutes and 31 seconds during Simpsonâ€™s trial, according to court documents. â€œI have to say that I felt like these charges were completely trumped up, that they were just trying to cover up what had been a very long and expensive investigation and they just couldnâ€™t leave without some sort of charges,â€ Simpsonâ€™s attorney, Kristina Sitton said. Sitton described Simpson as so devout that he would not even shake her hand and would sometimes interrupt their legal meetings so that he could pray. She said she had no indication that he was capable of violence and assumed he just â€œsnapped.â€ On Monday, federal agents spent hours canvassing a Phoenix apart ment complex where the men apparently lived. Bob Kieckhaver, one of a number of residents who were evacuated for about nine hours from units near the menâ€™s apartment, said one of them had a beard and wore an Islamic version of a prayer cap. He was quiet but the second man was more open and would greet others at the mailboxes. Both men were seen feeding stray cats, he said. Simpson was quiet, never angry and a regular on the basketball court playing with young members of the mosque, said Usama Shami, president of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix where Simpson worshipped for years. He asked questions about prayer and marriage, Shami said. And he was rattled by the FBI investigation into him years earlier. Shami said most people at the mosque knew Deng was an informant because he showed such little interest in learning about Islam. â€œIâ€™ve never seen him angry,â€ Shami said of Simpson. â€œThatâ€™s the honest truth. He was always having a grin.â€ CARTOONContinued From 1Aanything they could.â€ On June 22, 1941, soon after the deportations to prison camps started, the Nazis invaded Latvia in an attack on the Soviet Union. â€œAt first, we welcomed them as liberators, but they were just as brutal as the Russians,â€ Ozols said. â€œIt seemed like a wave of terror. If you were a Latvian or a Jew, you didnâ€™t stand a chance if they caught you.â€ That was when Ozolsâ€™ parents decided something had to change. Her father, Andrejs Steinbergs, joined the Underground Resistance, a group of Latvian citizens fighting to keep the country independent. â€œWe were resisting both the Russians and the Germans at this point, so we were between a rock and a hard place,â€ she said. â€œHe did what he had to do.â€ Ozolsâ€™ mother, Milda Steinbergs, also did what she had to do. She took Ozols and her two younger brothers and fled the country on a horse-drawn cart in 1943. Although Ozols only remembers bits and pieces, she said she doesnâ€™t recall being worried or scared. â€œI just remember sitting in the wagon behind the horse. I was just a kid, so it seemed like a good time,â€ she said. â€œEven if mama told me to go hide in the woods, I didnâ€™t feel fear, I just went and hid in the woods. It was a boogey man-type of situation.â€ She said after crossing the country, her mother sold the horse and cart to pay for passage on a ship to Poland. She remembers German torpedoes narrowly missing the ship as it was leaving port. â€œThe Germans were torpedoing anything that came out of the port because they thought it was the Russians,â€ she said. â€œReally we were just trying to escape.â€ Ozols described the ship as overcrowded and said she doesnâ€™t remember understanding what was going on, as she was only 6 years old at the time. â€œI had an idea of all the things going on, but why or wherefore? No. I didnâ€™t know any of that. At 6, you really canâ€™t know, because you canâ€™t understand. It began to become normal to live this way, and we just did what we had to do.â€ The ship docked in German-occupied Gdansk, where Ozols and her family members lived off the land for the next two years. â€œWe lived in forests and caves when we could find them. We stole what we could ... We begged,â€ she said. â€œWe just tried to stay out of the fighting as best we could and head west.â€ Ozols said she can still hear the sound of the planes and bombs dropping around her as she and her brother huddled in ditches and her mother covered them with her own body. She said her mother was the rock of the group. â€œI donâ€™t ever remember my mom feeling hopeless or giving up,â€ she said. â€œShe tried her best to keep us fed, keep us warm and keep us sheltered. She just was bound and determined to get into West Germany as fast as possible.â€ The four of them did finally make it to their destination toward the end of the war in 1945, just after Ozols turned 7. She said she remembers crowding together with other refugees and being put into displaced persons camps set up by the United Nations. â€œWe tried to find ones where there were more Latvians because we knew they would speak the language and relate to us in the biggest ways,â€ she said. Ozols said the camps became a society of their own, complete with school classes for kids taught by refugee teachers. Her family was finally reunited with her father, who escaped from Latvia as the war ended to look for them. â€œAfter getting back together we basically just lived in the camps and kept going to school as we could,â€ she said. â€œWe tried to stay as healthy as possible while applying for immigration to either the United States or Australia.â€ Ozols said after they were accepted for immigration to America and going through all of the protocol for relocation, she and her family boarded a boat to go to Ellis Island, N.Y. From there, the family traveled to Idaho, where they were sponsored by a Lutheran church that gave them a warm bedroom to stay in for their first night. â€œThe next morning we woke up and brought ourselves down to the first floor from the huddled upstairs bedroom. We thought that was all we had ,and we were so thankful, but it turned out that we had been given the whole house,â€ she said. â€œIt was just a blessing all the way around. We finally were realizing that we didnâ€™t have to hide anymore.â€ Ozols said the local Lutheran community welcomed and helped the family in many ways as she and her brothers learned English and started school. To repay the debt of their passage, Ozolsâ€™ mother and father worked on the farm and she worked as a maid. â€œWe all collected everything we could, paid the money back and then saved enough to start a new life in Omaha, Neb., where a large community of other Latvians had already settled.â€ Once in Omaha, Ozols met her husband Arnie in a Latvian church. The two got married and relocated several times to meet the requirements of his job as a contractor. Eventually, the couple followed work and settled permanently in Florida in 1970. Ozols said since her arrival in America, she has gained three things â€” safety, peace and liberty. â€œPeople should appreciate being born here and be thankful that they havenâ€™t experienced the trauma I have. â€œSometimes I just have to shake my head because people just donâ€™t seem to appreciate what America is, but then I wonder if I would be this way without this experience, and Iâ€™m not sure I know.â€ She said her experiences have not changed one or even a few things about her, but everything. â€œEverything that was dark and dreary during the war is the direct opposite now. The sun is out, and the Lord is good,â€ she said. â€œEverything is just so, and I am so thankful for it all.â€ OZOLSContinued From 1A From staff reportsA Columbia County man, arrested Sunday afternoon, faces domestic violence charges after he allegedly grabbed his former girlfriend by the neck and threatened her with a knife. William Brantley Brinkley, 54, of 479 Huntsville Church Road, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon (without intent to kill), battery and domestic battery by strangulation stemming from the incident. He is being held in the Columbia County Detention Center without bond. According to Columbia County Sheriffâ€™s Office reports, Deputy Thomas Mansfield was dispatched to a Wellborn address where a woman told him an old boyfriend of hers, Brinkley, visited and the two got into an argument. The woman told Mansfield that Brinkley became belligerent and started to yell at her and was throwing empty beer bottles at her and her horses. The woman said Brinkley had been drinking and she convinced him to leave the yard and that he didnâ€™t need any more beer. The woman said she tried to pick up a six-pack of beer in front of her fence and when she bent down, she said Brinkley grabbed her by the neck, stood her up and punched her in the nose with a closed fist. She told the Mansfield that Brinkley then pushed her toward the fence and as she was falling backward, she struck one of the fence posts, hitting her head and breaking the post away from the fence. The woman said she picked up a stick lying next to her so that she could defend herself from further attack and when she got back to her feet, Brinkley reached into his waistband and pulled out a knife and threatened her. The woman said she was in fear that Brinkley was going to stab her and once she yelled that she was going to call the police, Brinkley threw two more beer bottles toward her and drove away. Brinkley told authorities that the woman slipped in the leaves in her yard and fell while she was trying to attack him. Man arrested after allegedly threatening woman with knife Brinkley

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman Here we go again in Ellisville I knew I smelled something a while back when I saw the article on the front page of the Lake City Reporter, Ellisville back in play! The good olÂ’ boys are at it again. The events center was abandoned due to pressure from local people that didnÂ’t want their tax dollars spent on it. Now, theyÂ’ve changed the name to Agriculture Center and have deliberately tried to veil it in secrecy. But anyone that has an ounce of common sense can see that itÂ’s the same olÂ’ bunch want ing to spend more taxpayer money on a pet project for that area so the millions theyÂ’ve already wast ed on it can be partially justified. The people of Ellisville didnÂ’t want city utilities down there. They resisted it up until they were forced to accept them. The com mission spent millions of taxpayer money putting city utilities down there because someone anticipat ed there would be growth in the area. Now that the utilities are there and the per-capita usage is still such that the costs donÂ’t jus tify the outlay, they want to spend more of our tax money to try to attract businesses to an area best suited for agriculture. If there were going to be any growth in that area, it would occur naturally because people want to build and live there. Just because thereÂ’s a county building there doesnÂ’t make an area more attrac tive. If it were going to be like a US 90 interchange, as my commis sioner, Mr. Nash put it, the growth would start on itÃs own. Spending more millions of our dollars isnÂ’t going to change the face or loca tion of Ellisville. Is the next step going to be for the county commissioners to want to spend money down there to build a condominium complex, a shopping center and a school or two so that the millions they spent on water and sewer wonÂ’t go to waste from non-use? What in the world business is it of the county commission to choose an area that they think should be developed and then throw millions of taxpayer dollars at it because, in their opinion, it should be appealing? What author ity does the commission have to spend taxpayer money on capital projects that donÂ’t benefit more than 10 percent of them, without first putting the proposal up for a vote? I believe thatÂ’s part of the reason our founders declared independence. Is the county commission in the real estate development business, the save the Blanche business, the sports complex building business, or should they be doing the peo pleÂ’s business like getting rid of waste in county government? Or perhaps reducing the size of the county bureaucracy? More citizens need to take an interest in our county government even if itÂ’s to remind them who it is that put them in office and who theyÂ’re supposed to be represent ing. These people have developed the attitude that, once elected, they have the OK to advance any agenda they please. It needs to change because weÂ’re losing con trol of our county. Ichetucknee, spring break hot spot ItÂ’s all relative, of course. Spring break ers coming to kayak, canoe and tube the Ichetucknee wonÂ’t anytime soon rival the vast numbers soaking up rays on, say, Panama City Beach, and thatÂ’s fine by us. Too much of a good thing can be worse than nothing at all. We know part of the reason for the increase in visitors is better and more intense marketing of North FloridaÂ’s crown jewel to young folks in less inviting climes. Beyond that, though, there were other forces at work as well. Namely the awful scenes of violence on display in Panama City and elsewhere this spring. Terrible things happened on Florida beaches over the last few weeks, including gang rapes and shootings, and they were hard not to notice. But youngsters (or maybe their parents) looking for an alternative did take note of the Sunshine StateÂ’s shortest river. WeÂ’re glad they did.To them we say, thanks for visiting, and come on back next year. YouÂ’re welcome anytime. A thug by any other name, like a rose, is still a thug. Thugs come in all hues Â— white, brown, black and in between. They even come in police uniforms. Thugs can be found everywhere. The origin of the word Â“thugÂ” derives from a murderous cult of religious assassins in India during British colonial days who went around strangling their political enemies and anyone else who stood in their way. They worshiped Kali, a god of destruction, hence the term thug applies to any cutthroat or ruffi an. And that is an exact description of those who used Freddie GrayÂ’s death as an excuse for mayhem. There can be no concern about political correctness or attempted justification based on a history of deprivation of civil rights. These people were even disavowed by the responsible gener ation of their own community. Calling someone a thug then is not a racial epithet no matter what the African-American mayor of Baltimore might think after she apologized for initially using the term to describe those who burned, looted and generally trashed her city. She was right in the first place despite pangs to her conscience that had a distinct political coloration. Reportedly she is considered less culturally black by a number of her constituents who took immediate exception to her label of the rioters who seemed less concerned about the unjust death in police custody of one of their own than they were in robbing, looting and burning. She was wrong when her mea culpa to the black community included a contention that Baltimore was a city devoid of thugs made apparently on advice of her han dlers. In fact, the victims of these thugs were also black and the six police officers who fit the classic definition of thuggish behavior in their actions were equally divided racially, white and black. Interestingly, the resulting charges launched against the six officers, five males and one woman, who par ticipated in the highly questionable arrest and further action that took GrayÂ’s life were from another African American official: first-term stateÂ’s attorney Marilyn Mosby. She not only understood what had taken place but made it clear that BaltimoreÂ’s epidemic of intolerable police behavior to those in the inner city was about to end. The city has paid out millions of dollars to the victims of such action by cops. Her swift response, which ranged from illegal assault to second-degree murder allegations, puts her high up on the list of courageous prosecu tors, not to mention future political consideration. From Ferguson, Mo., to Baltimore, the incidences of unjus tified force by police has not only shocked us but made us desperately aware of a need for better screening, training, and compensation for those who enforce our laws and provide our security. Something has been terribly overlooked in the criminal justice system. Better pay for a difficult, often-life threatening task might help bring to the job a better qualified individual who understands his or her obligations to those they serve no matter their station in life. There are, of course, tens of thousands of law officers who do understand. Many face every day that dreaded time when something goes wrong and lives are threatened but stand steadfast in their determi nation not to act unfairly. I am reminded of a young federal agent who one noon along with two of his companions faced a show down with a trio of Los Angeles gang bangers who were gun traf fickers. Only a few yards apart, the bullets began to fly, wounding one agent and at least one of the thugs. In his shooting stance, the young agent hesitated because down the street he saw a young boy riding a big wheel in the direct line of fire. His hesitation could have cost his life, but fortunately the youngster had cleared the danger zone quickly and the young agent survived to save his wounded partner and ulti mately to receive a medal of valor. There are thousands more such young men and women in law enforcement than those who, as Mosby said, put themselves Â“above the law.Â” But donÂ’t misunderstand. Thugs come in all dimensions and stopping them is a never ending task ... even in Baltimore.A thug by any other nameQ Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1862, the Battle of Puebla took place in Mexico as forces loyal to Benito Juarez defeated troops that had been sent by Napoleon III during the so-called French Intervention.

Both teams are just ready to play. Columbia, in its fourth meeting with the Knights this season, hosts Oakleaf tonight in the 6A regional semifinal. The two teams have kept the rivalry hot in the previ-ous three match-ups, and TuesdayÂ’s winner will glad-ly claim bragging rights. Â“ItÂ’s an advantage and disadvantage,Â” Tigers head coach Heath Phillips said of the teamsÂ’ history. Â“They know us and we know them. All the boys know each other. IÂ’m just happy two teams from this district have a chance to advance.Â” The regular season series between both squads was split before their third meeting two weeks ago in the district final. Columbia won the contest 5-1 to claim its first district title since 2010. The Knights are back in Lake City for one last chance at redemption. For the Tigers, their wild ride of a season continues tonight after edging Milton 2-1 in the regional quarter-finals last week. ColumbiaÂ’s four-game winning steak has been fueled off superb pitching from its ace Tyler Myrick. The junior pitcher has been called upon again to lead his team to victory, but it wonÂ’t be an easy task against the district rivals. The Knights return to Fighting Tiger Field com-ing off a nearly four-hour game against Pace in the quarterfinal last week. Oakleaf won 1-0 to advance with Knights out-fielder Jason Schmidt hav-ing the go-ahead homer Columbia hosts Oakleaf in semifinal.

Jara, a senior at Columbia High School, is the daughter of Jerry Wayne and Tara Courson of Lake City. By JENNA FRYERAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Â— There was a nearly five-year period for Dale Earnhardt Jr. when being a famous race car driver wasnÂ’t all glitz and glam-our. He was a non-factor on the race track, barely even contended at Daytona and Talladega, the two places he was supposed to be unbeatable, and he is the first to admit his confi-dence had crumbled. Rebuilding NASCARÂ’s most popular driver was a lengthy process that took a firm commitment from Rick Hendrick and a ton of patience from EarnhardtÂ’s rabid fan base. The turn-around was slow Â— some laps led here, a win there Â— until he finally hit his stride last season with a Daytona 500 victory and three other wins. So it was no surprise Sunday to see Earnhardt back in victory lane at Talladega Superspeedway, a track he at one time had conquered with the same ease as his father. The late Dale Earnhardt won 10 times at the Alabama restrictor-plate track; his son once reeled off five wins in seven races. What was a surprise was the pure emotion that poured out of Junior when he climbed from his car following his sixth Talladega victory, his first at the track since 2004, and one that came just four days after what would have been his fatherÂ’s 64th birthday. Earnhardt choked on his words as he talked about how much he appreciates his life, that he doesnÂ’t think he deserves all this happiness. Hours later, the beer and champagne soak-ing through his firesuit and his emotions finally in check, he was asked what made him so reflective immedi-ately after the win. His answer showed again what a thoughtful and sin-cere man Earnhardt has become. Shy as a child, then cast as a party boy when he moved to NASCARÂ’s top series, heÂ’s finally figured out exactly who he is. HeÂ’s a homebody at heart who has found the woman of his dreams, and together theyÂ’ve learned a greater appreciation for every success he earns on the track. At 40, heÂ’s blissfully content and forever grateful for this opportunity he still has driv-ing the Hendrick Motorsports No. 88 Chevrolet. Â“I think the part I feel I donÂ’t think I deserve is the racing side of it Â— thereÂ’s just not many sec-ond chances,Â” he said. Â“I feel like if my name wasnÂ’t Earnhardt that I wouldnÂ’t have had the second chance. I feel like I owe my second chance to my dad, his legacy, because the way I ran ... I feel I didnÂ’t deserve to be kept around or hung onto.Â” A fan of all sports and a bit of a historian, Earnhardt said he has seen plenty of sons follow their father into business and fail. After just four wins in nine seasons, Earnhardt certainly wasnÂ’t living up to his fatherÂ’s legacy. The late Dale Earnhardt was a seven-time Cup champion, a first-ballot Hall of Famer, winner of 76 career races and a driver who sent shivers down the spines of his rivals when they saw him in the rear-view mirror. Earnhardt cruises to 1st Talladega win since 2004. SPIRE DENTAL GROUP A NEW NAME AND A NEW DIRECTION (formerly Aspen Dental Group)DO150, DO330Dr. Robert J.

The Gators have been collecting information on potential successors since at least February, prob-ably even sooner. Although athletic director Jeremy Foley said Monday he would sit down with his search team later in the day and discuss potential candidates, he made it clear that school officials have been plan-ning for DonovanÂ’s depar-ture for some time. Foley said the process only intensified when the NBAÂ’s Oklahoma City Thunder fired coach Scott Brooks on April 22. Â“We heard some undercurrents that this (was) a possibility, so we began looking at coaches probably several weeks ago,Â” Foley said. The Thunder hired Donovan on Thursday, prying him away from Florida after a 19-year col-lege career that includ-ed two national cham-pionships, four trips to the Final Four and 14 appearances in the NCAA Tournament. Donovan was formally introduced at his new job Friday. He returned to Gainesville over the week-end and formally and tear-fully said goodbye to the football-first program he essentially put on the col-lege basketball map dur-ing a news conference Monday. Foley choked back tears while talking about his relationship with Donovan, saying Â“what we really didnÂ’t know 19 years ago was the type of person we were get-ting. One of the best, you know?Â” Donovan, meanwhile, showed some emotion when asked about what SEARCH continued on 6B Athletic director Foley says search began months ago.

Â‘PG-13Â’ Penny Dreadful Â“Fresh HellÂ” Nurse Jackie HappyishPenny Dreadful Â“Fresh HellÂ” Inside ComedyHappyish By ANTONIO GONZALEZ Associated PressOAKLAND, Calif. Â— Some called him too small. Others too fragile. Now, Stephen Curry has a new label: NBA MVP. The Golden State WarriorsÂ’ point guard won the leagueÂ’s top individual award Monday, beating out HoustonÂ’s James Harden in a race that turned out not to be that close. Curry received 100 of 130 first-place votes for a total of 1,198 points from a panel of 129 writers and broadcasters, along with the fan vote on the NBAÂ’s website. Harden had 25 first-place votes and 936 points. ClevelandÂ’s LeBron James, a four-time MVP, got five first-place votes and 552 points. Oklahoma City ThunderÂ’s Russell Westbrook (352 points) finished fourth and New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis (203 points) was fifth. With the revitalized Warriors winning at a his-toric pace, CurryÂ’s case for MVP resonated around the league as loud as the night-ly chants at rowdy Oracle Arena. Curry carried the top-seeded Warriors to a franchise-record 67 wins, surpassed his own record for most 3-pointers in a season and added to his grow-ing reputation as one of the most entertaining spectacles in sports. HeÂ’s the franchiseÂ’s first MVP since Wilt Chamberlain in 1960, when the Warriors played in Philadelphia. Curry was set to receive the award dur-ing an afternoon news conference Monday in Oakland. He will be pre-sented with the hardware again during an on-court ceremony when Golden State hosts Memphis in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals Tuesday night. Congratulations rolled in from players around the league at practices and on social media. None echoed louder than those from James, who called Curry the main reason for the WarriorsÂ’ rapid rise to championship contender. Â“HeÂ’s the catalyst of that whole ship,Â” James said at the CavaliersÂ’ morning shootaround. Â“And I think heÂ’s had an unbelievable season. And I think itÂ’s very well deserved, and I think itÂ’s great that anoth-er kid born in Akron, Ohio, can win an MVP, so, I liked it.Â” Curry was born in Akron but grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, where he started in the shadows of his father, former NBA player Dell Curry. Despite his famous name, most major col-leges didnÂ’t offer Curry a scholarship coming out of high school because they thought he was too small. Curry proved them all wrong, going from a shoot-ing guard who dazzled at Davidson during the NCAA Tournament to a polished professional point guard who can shoot, dribble and distribute with the best of them. In a game dominated by big men and played by some of the worldÂ’s greatest athletes, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Curry controls the flow without physically overpowering defenders. But there were times when it seemed CurryÂ’s potential might not be reached. Two operations on his right ankle in his first three seasons with Golden State fueled ques-tions about his durability. He even had to prove his worth to the team that drafted him seventh overall in 2009. Curry signed a $44 million, four-year con-tract extension with the Warriors before the 2012-13 season. Back then, the deal looked like a major risk for the Warriors con-sidering CurryÂ’s injury history. Now? Well, Curry is clearly one of basketballÂ’s best bargains. He eclipsed his own record of 272 3-pointers set two years ago, hitting 286 from beyond the arc this season. He already owns three of the five most prolif-ic 3-point shooting seasons in NBA history. Curry averaged 23.8 points, 7.7 assists, 4.3 rebounds and two steals this season. He shot 48.7 percent from the floor and 44.3 percent from 3-point range. Off the floor, his popularity is also soaring. Curry received more AllStar votes than any player and joined James and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver at the leagueÂ’s biggest mar-keting events during All-Star weekend in New York, where his face plastered posters in subway stations and televisions in taxi cabs. He also delivered by win-ning his first 3-point con-test.

My wife and I were raised with certain values, and our daughters have recent ly moved in with their boyfriends. We do not approve, but respect their decisions as adults. One daughter plans to have an open-house party celebrating their new place. SheÂ’s upset that my wife and I have indicated we wonÂ’t be attending, because doing so would be difficult and against our beliefs. We have under stood her decision, but she does not appear to respect ours. Are we wrong to take this stance? Â— AGAINST THE TIDE IN NEW JERSEY DEAR AGAINST: I think so. Your daughter is an adult. Do you plan to continue Â“punishingÂ” her and the man you say you approve of until they tie the knot? She and her boy friend have been a couple for five years now, and their relationship appears to be progressing nicely. ItÂ’s not unusual for couples today to live together. I see nothing to be gained by skipping their open house Â— but I do see something to lose. DEAR ABBY: My hus bandÂ’s grandmother keeps purchasing season tickets to the theater for me. I have told my mother-in-law (who is in charge of buy ing the tickets) as politely as possible that summer is a very busy time for me. My kids, husband and I are all involved in activi ties, and the theater con flicts with these activities. As well, I donÂ’t particular ly enjoy the group of people that we go there with. (I havenÂ’t shared this with my mother-in-law.) While I like my mother-in-law and husbandÂ’s grandmother, the others are rude. They exclude me from conversa tions and hardly acknowl edge my existence. I try to make conversation but unsuccessfully. It makes for a dreadfully awkward evening. How do I get out of going to the theater with out hurting anyoneÂ’s feel ings? Â— NO THANKS IN CANADA DEAR NO THANKS: The most effective way to accomplish that would be to stop beating around the bush and tell your hus bandÂ’s mother and grand mother you would prefer not to be included, and the reason why. DEAR ABBY: I like a girl but donÂ’t know if she likes me. I went to a school dance with her, but thatÂ’s about it. IÂ’m a choosy per son, but everything seems right about her. I never had a girlfriend before. Am I doing some thing wrong? I really want to be in a relationship with her, but I donÂ’t want to get rejected. I hate that feeling. Can you give me advice on what to do? Â— IN LIKE IN WISCONSIN DEAR IN LIKE: There is a saying, Â“Nothing ven tured, nothing gained.Â” It means that in order to suc ceed, you have to TRY. In dating relationships, there is always some risk of rejec tion, and it applies to girls as well as boys. If you want a relationship with her, stop being afraid and start acting like it. Because she went to a dance with you, she proba bly already likes you, too. ARIES (March 21-April 19): A change of scenery will do you good. Making a residential or professional move should be considered and looked into. ItÂ’s up to you to make things happen, so donÂ’t sit back waiting for things to come to you. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A partner ship will turn out to be better than anticipated. Nurture and protect what you have worked hard to build and be willing to share with those who com plement your talents and meet you every step of the way. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Focus on discipline and breaking old habits. Encourage a better lifestyle and healthier attitude.

Let your creativity take over, and discuss your ambitions and ideas. DonÂ’t let someoneÂ’s unpredict able nature ruin your plans. Do your own thing. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Pick up the pace and donÂ’t leave room for error. ItÂ’s important not to waste time arguing with someone who doesnÂ’t share your point of view. Do what works best for you and donÂ’t look back. Your confi dence will lead to success. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You will inspire enthu siasm in others just by fol lowing through with your plans and showing every one what you are capable of doing. Collaborating with others must be done cau tiously. Someone will take credit for your hard work, patience and talent. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Show everyone what you are capable of doing.

Negotiations will turn in your favor. Ask for what you want, but donÂ’t prom ise something you cannot deliver. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will be honored for your help, donations and whatever con tributions you make. Take any opportunity you get to discuss your plans for the future with someone influ ential, and you will get the go-ahead to follow through with your vision. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): DonÂ’t let your emotions take over. Keep your thoughts to yourself and focus on your own business, plans and self-improvement. Formulate what you want to achieve, and do whatever it takes to reach your goal and reap the rewards you deserve. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): DonÂ’t waste time when you should be working diligent ly to position yourself for future success. A problem at home must not cloud your vision or lead to poor health. A short trip or physical change can help you avoid an unnecessary conflict. +++++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Parents who have strong beliefs wonÂ’t visit cohabitating couple Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS TUESDAY, MAY 5, 2015 By TIM DAHLBERGAssociated Press LAS VEGAS Â— The check was for $100 million, a payday so mind boggling that Floyd Mayweather Jr. couldnÂ’t help but show it to a few reporters when the night was done. Â“No pictures, though,Â” Mayweather said, sliding the check out of an envelope. Â“DonÂ’t want any pictures of it.Â” The check will soon be cashed, adding to the mil-lions Mayweather already has stashed in his bank accounts. It was actually just a down payment for his nightÂ’s work, which could total more than $200 mil-lion by the time pay-per-view sales are tallied up. The richest fight ever wasnÂ’t the best fight ever, but that wasnÂ’t entirely MayweatherÂ’s fault. He did what he usually does Saturday night against Manny Pacquiao in a win that cemented his legacy as the best of his generation, even if he didnÂ’t win any new fans doing it. Still, the fight will be a tough act to follow if only because of the staggering money it brought in. Hard to imagine Mayweather fight-ing for a paltry $30 million or $40 million after a night he made history with the rich-est single payday any athlete of any sport has made. He says heÂ’ll fight once more in September, then hang up the gloves. Mayweather says itÂ’s time to enjoy the fruits of his labor from a sport that has consumed his life since he was a kid throwing punches in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Â“I donÂ’t really think IÂ’ll miss the sport,Â” Mayweather said. Â“I donÂ’t even watch boxing. At one particular time I loved the sport of boxing. I wanted to go to every fight and wanted to be at every box-ing event. But I just lost the love for the sport.Â” Before a well-heeled crowd of 16,507 that cheered every time Pacquiao threw a punch, Mayweather dom-inated late once again to pull out a decision win that seemed closer in the ring than it did on the scorecards. Pacquiao even thought he won, though punch stats showed Mayweather land-ing far more punches and even throwing more than the usually frenetic Filipino. Pacquiao would blame a shoulder injury suffered in training last month for not being able to throw more right hands. His handlers would blame Nevada boxing officials for not allowing him a shot to numb the shoulder just before the fight, though the excuse rang hollow. Â“I cannot use a lot of my right hand but the fight was still good,Â” Pacquiao said. Â“What we wanted to do we couldnÂ’t do because of my shoulder. But heÂ’s fast, heÂ’s a good boxer. Give the cred-it to him. He won tonight.Â” PacquiaoÂ’s trainer, Freddie Roach, said his fighter would like a rematch, but there is little chance of that. Not with PacquiaoÂ’s shoulder injury, and certainly not after the per-fect financial storm of a fight that cannot be replicated. Pacquiao likely made $100 million himself for the fight that packed the MGM Grand arena with celebrities, sports stars and people paying as much as $40,000 for ringside seats. The bout was delayed for about a half hour because pay-per-view sales were over-whelming cable and satellite systems, a good omen for the paydays of both fighters. Mayweather takes his $100 million check and runs Mayweather could total more than $200 PLOOLRQIURPÂ¿JKW in the top of the 13th inning to seal the playoff victory. Schmidt and a few other Knights will be on the TigersÂ’ scouting report Tuesday, and Myrick will need to pitch accordingly. The Tigers will face another standout starting pitcher, Skylar Arias or Will Pillsbury, maybe both on Tuesday. Both lefties combined for 22 strikeouts against Pace. Â“It is what it is,Â” Philips added. Â“We got a good pitcher too TheyÂ’re going to have watch our guy too.Â” Columbia swung well against MiltonÂ’s pitcher Chase Shell, who previ-ously owned a 0.96 ERA, and hope to duplicate its results against another ace tonight. If the Tigers win, theyÂ’ll win host either Bartram Trail or Creekside Friday. Â“Any time you can get support from fans and the community, itÂ’s always good,Â” Phillips added. Â“Fan support has been great. IÂ’ve yet to go to a district game and see a crowd like ours.Â” COURTESYStudents from Larry TaylorsÂ’s Martial Arts in Chiefland p ose with their new trophies from the Florida Gateway Chall enge recently.

Â“I think that people will always look at wins and losses and those kinds of things,Â” said Donovan, who finished 467-186 at Florida. Â“I hope that IÂ’m able to leave a big, gaping hole here. And I donÂ’t mean that from an arrogant stand-point. I mean that I was able to make an impact, that I was able to impact peopleÂ’s lives, that I was able to bring value to people, that I was able to help people grow from staff to players to the administration. Â“I just hope that I brought value. I hope I made Florida better. IÂ’m not talking about from wins and losses. I hope I made Florida better as an institution. ... I hope I really left and brought value here and maybe changed the perception of the culture here. Just that I worked as hard as I could. I did everything I could. I cared deeply about the pro-gram. I cared deeply about Florida, and just wanted to leave a dent and to bring value. And I hope that by my presence for 19 years that the place is better for having me here.Â” ThereÂ’s no doubting DonovanÂ’s legacy. Before jumping to the NBA, he became just the second coach in Division I history to 500 career wins before reaching his 50th birthday. The other was Hall of Fame coach Bob Knight. So replacing the former Providence standout nick-named Â“Billy the KidÂ” will be no easy task. Although Donovan declined to say whether he expects to take anyone from his Florida staff with him, many believe former Alabama coach Anthony Grant Â— who has yet to make it to Gainesville after being hired as an assis-tant last month Â— will join Donovan in Oklahoma City. Donovan made a case for Foley to hire former Arkansas coach John Pelphrey, who has spent the last four years on DonovanÂ’s staff. Pelphrey also spent six years on DonovanÂ’s staff before leav-ing to take the head coach-ing jobs at South Alabama and then Arkansas. Â“I think Jeremy knows the way I feel about John Pelphrey and just the way heÂ’s been by my side all the way along his whole entire career,Â” Donovan said. Â“He was a vital part to the suc-cess of the program since IÂ’ve been here. ... Jeremy is the best athletic director in the country, and heÂ’s done this before. I just basically told him that IÂ’m here in any way to help and sup-port and assist in any way. IÂ’m not going to try to inject myself in anything going forward from here, but I do want to see this program do extremely well.Â” Given what Donovan has built, itÂ’s more likely Foley will look to hire a more proven head coach, like maybe DaytonÂ’s Archie Miller, XavierÂ’s Chris Mack or maybe VillanovaÂ’s Jay Wright. When asked what heÂ’s looking for in DonovanÂ’s replacement, Foley jok-ingly rattled off DonovanÂ’s resume before getting seri-ous. Â“WeÂ’re not taking a step back,Â” Foley said. Â“We want to keep this thing going in the right direction. I think there are a lot of people doubting that we can do that, and that fires us up because we have a good job here.Â” SEARCHContinued From Page 1B Eye of the Tiger PLAYOFFContinued From Page 1B FILEColumbiaÂ’s Tyson Ellis is chased by Fort WhiteÂ’s Trace Wilkinson earlier this season.
