Malone student drowns in Alabama

From staff reports
A 13-year-old Jackson County
student drowned Monday in a
lake at the Chattahoochee State
Park in southeastern Alabama.
According to the Dothan Eagle,
the Houston County, Ala., cor-

oner identified the victim as
Duane McLeroy of Bascom.
McLeroy was a seventh-grade
student at Malone School, ac-
cording to Principal Linda Hall.
The Jackson County School
District sent extra counselors to
Malone School Tuesday to pro-

vide grief counseling to students,
Hall said.
"We are keeping the family in
our thoughts and prayers right
now," Hall said. "He was just a
very sweet young man, and we
care for him deeply and we'll feel
the loss."

The Houston County Sheriff's
Office received a call just after 5
p.m. Monday that McLeroy had
gone missing.
According to the Dothan Eagle,
McLeroy was attending a family
barbecue and had left the rest of
the group to play in the water.

McLeroy was in water that was
about chest deep when he ap-
parently stepped into a drop off,
and drowned ijn water that was
about seven or eight feet deep.
Divers reportedly found McLe-
roy within about half an hour of


Community leader

Fred Compagni dies

LEFT: Fred Compagni. RIGHT: A trio of puppies rest in a kennel bearing the name of long time Partners for Pets Animal Shelters
benefactor Fred Compagni.

Supported many causes, touched many lives


Fred Compagni touched the lives of
many people, businesses and causes
in Jackson County after he moved here
in 1987, and friends sayhis passing Fri-
day has left a void in the community.
But even in death, Compagni is still
helping one of his most beloved orga-
nizations. Instead of sending flowers,
friends are asked to make donations
in his honor to the Partners for Pets
animal shelter.
He was a staunch supporter of the
shelter for many years, and only last
month adopted a puppy there.

Shelter Manager Kim Bailey said
Compagni funded the facility for
"He loved these animals," Bailey said.
"He funded us for years, with monthly
donations, and once he went out and
bought us a brand new riding lawn
mower after he found out we didn't
have any way to cut the grass. We have
kennels that he actually helped spon-
sor, and we have a plaque at one of
them in his honor."
Debbie O'Quinn also works at the
shelter, and said that Compagni not
only gavehis monthly contribution, he
would also donate additional money
when he dropped by to check on the

animals and the needs of the facility.
"Every time he was here, I think
he probably gave at least $100 every
time," O'Quinn said. "He was just a
special person. He was such a sweet-
heart. He did a lot for the shelter."
Compagni was also a friend to the
real estate community. Compagni had
at least 10 homes built here and kept
Jackson County realtors and contrac-
tors busy as he sold them and moved
on to build in other locations in the
community. He also rehabilitated
several structures, buying and selling
many through the years. He was also

Canoe trip to

fight cancer

this weekend

Half of proceeds will

go to local residents

, The third annual Canoeing for the fight
against Cancer is this Saturday.
The event was started by Marianna-resi-
dent Sheila Hayes whose mother is a can-
cer survivor and whose friend died from
cancer a few years ago.
Hayes donates half of the proceeds each
year to a local person fighting cancer and
the other half to Covenant Hospice. She
donates the money to local people rather
than a large national organization because
she gets to' see where the money is going,
she said.
"I just felt like giving back to.the people
who needed the money...and that deserve
the money," Hayes said.
In 2009, the proceeds went to a Mari-
anna woman fighting cancer. That woman
used the money to take a vacation with her
young son because they had never been
on one. At that time, the woman had been
given a year to live, but she is still living to-
day two years later, Hayes said,
This year, the proceeds will go to a Mari-
anna woman who has cancer and lives by
herself. Hayes said she knows the woman
can use the money to help pay bills and get
to and from doctor's appointments. Hayes
is going to surprise the woman with the
money after the event.
Hayes said she also donates to Covenant
Hospice because of the important work
they do to take care of cancer patients. She
said Covenant Hospice took great care of
her friend when he was battling cancer.
"They just do good work, they are an-
gels," Hayes said.
On Saturday, the group will start the ca-
noe trip at 9 a.m. at Spring Creek Park off
U.S. Highway 90 in Marianna and travel
three miles to Magnolia Bridge Boat Ramp
off Magnolia Road. Participants are asked
to give a $20 donation each.
SHayes said the event is a day for fellow-
shipping with cancer survivors and re-
membering lost loved ones. It's also a day
for caregivers and family members of can-
cer fighters to relax and have a fun time.
"It's a beautiful day....We love on each
other. We listen to each other's stories;"
Hayes said. "It's just a good time."

County fire rescue gets new life-saving equipment


Jackson County Fire Rescue took,
delivery of some new life-sav-
ing equipment this week, and on
Tuesday, the crews started learn-
ing how to use it.
The system of jacks and struts al-
lows crews to lift, shift, move and
brace overturned vehicles, stabi-
lize damaged portions of homes,
and perform other tasks that can
help them rescue people hurt in
accidents, weather disasters and
other crises.
Until now, crews have had to
waif for a wrecker to make prog-
ress with an overturned car or
tie a chain to a fire truck and pull
a vehicle when circumstances

Various scenarios were set up
Tuesday on the yard of the main
fire rescue station on State Road
71, and crews were asked to per-
form various:maneuvers with the
H&H Enterprises, a Jackson
County salvage company, donated
some of the battered old cars and
trucks to use in the mock crash
The new equipment signifi-
cantly improves rescue work, ac-
cording to Jackson County Fire
Marshal Capt. Chuck Sawyer. It
will not only allow rescue teams to
work faster, it will also make con-
ditions safer for them. Other than
Walton County, Jackson County is
the only rescue unit in this area

of the state with such advanced
equipment. He said fire rescue
team member Capt. Josh Williams
was responsible for bringing it to
the department's attention. He'd
seen it in demonstration at a con-
ference and suggested that the
county look into it.
Sawyer said the Jackson County
Commission recently approved
the purchase of the $19,000 sys-
tem, which was bought with funds
from an annual Florida Depart-
ment of Health grant for county
emergency medical services teams
around the state.
Many fire rescue workers were
actually off duty Tuesday, but came
in for the training provided by Tom
Winkler of Southern Rescue Tools,
the vendor of the equipment.

Members of Jackson County Fire Rescue practice with new equipment
designed to let them lift and manipulate vehicles using a system of
jacks, struts and anchors.

O9 Opinion

A call to action

The former Dozier School for Boys is closing, and
Florida State Hospital is trimming its workforce. In
all, several hundred people many of them Jackson
County residents will be out of a job come June 30.
On top of that, some 360 acres south of Marianna will
now essentially be abandoned, save for basic upkeep.
But this isn't time to sit and bewail our fate. It's time to
get up and get busy.
We therefore propose that everyone the Jackson
County Development Council, the other development
commissions in smaller sections of the county, the Jack-
son County Chamber of Commerce, Chipola College,
Jackson Hospital, the other major employers here, and
all interested residents begin working on long-term
plans to create more jobs and find new uses for the old
Dozier porperty.
It could be something like a whole new visioningg"
process. It could involve lobbying the state for special
tax breaks, or the creation of some sort of enterprise
zone for Jackson County to encourage more businesses
to locate here. It could involve private fundraising to
beef up the work of JCDC and other, similar agencies.
This is not to say that nothing is being done on these
fronts now. But Friday's announcements have created
a whole new sense of urgency, and what is being done
needs to be kicked into overdrive.
It won't provide any short-term, quick fixes. Creating
new jobs, and perhaps finding a suitable use for the
Dozier property, will take time and effort. The more
people and institutions that are involved in these pro-
cesses, the more ideas that will be generated.
Jackson County isn't the only community facing
hardship. But we are competing against all those other
communities for jobs and investment. We need to get
everyone involved in that effort.

Letter tohe Eitor

An opportunity to create
some growth
This letter is in reference to the
Jackson Yes campaign regard-
ing serving liquor by the drink in
Jackson County. I have read many
letters to this paper about how
changing this law would lead to
the downfall of Jackson County.
Everyone against it believes that it
will cause DUI arrests to go up, DUI
fatalities to increase, and that it will
lead to "the unsightly addition of
bars and night clubs to this com-
munity." I have even read that it will
lead to strip clubs and prostitution,
along with the organized crime
associated with it. I wish to point
out a few things that a number of
these writers may not understand,
or forget about, in order to make
their point.
If someone wants to drink, they
are going to drink. Whether you
serve it to them at a restaurant, a
bar, a liquor store, or even at a most
likely never-to-appear strip club.
Since all Jackson County really has
now are restaurants and liquor
stores, I will start with these.
I doubt any of the citizens who
oppose this change law have
ever refused to go to a restaurant
because it serves liquor. People
drive out of Jackson County to eat a
nice meal. Not because they serve
liquor in most cases, but because
they are nicer restaurants. Nobody
can guarantee that changing the
ordinance will bring these nicer
restaurants to Jackson County,
but most are fairly certain that not
changing it will keep them away.
Places like Longhorn, Outback, TGI
Friday's and Olive Garden serve
liquor and wine. I have rarely ever
walked into any them and seen an
abundance of people there just to
get drunk, but rather responsible
people enjoying a mixed drink or
glass of wine with a great meal. If
that is not your choice of drink,
they also serve tea and sodas.
If Jackson County could get
these types of places, it would lead
to a few jobs. Maybe not a great
number, but with they way things
are going in this county now, a few
jobs are better than none. It would
lead to more revenue for the county
through permits, taxes and inspec-
It might even lead to more tour-
ism, which the county is always try-
ing to promote. It has the possibil-
ity to lead to more business, such
as perhaps a mall one day. People
do rot want to visit a place where
there is nothing to do, and nowhere
to do it.
If people are just wanting to get
drunk, they are most likely not go-
ing to do it at a restaurant. It costs
entirely too much, at roughly $7 to
$10 a drink.
The more likely scenario is that
they will go buy the whole bottle of
liquor or wine, at a fraction of the
cost, at the liquor stores that are all
over the county.
If a few bars do end up coming
to the county, I fail to see how that
will hurt in any way. They won't be

allowed to operate in residential
areas, so it won't really affect the
people who are opposed to it. And
I seriously doubt it will lead to strip
Clubs but in the unlikely sce-
nario that it does, it will affect the
residents about the same as a bar
would, which is essentially none.
They don't have windows, so you
don't see what's going on without
walking in.
As far as the DUI argument goes,
if someone wants to drink they are
going to drink. The only people
who aren't drinking here are the
ones who don't want to. They still
have to get home regardless of
where they drink, so the number
of people driving drunk prob-
ably will not change much. If the
community grows, it might even
lead to a few taxis operating in the
area, giving people an alternative
to driving home drunk. You're not
reducing the number of residents
who drive drunk by denying them
the opportunity to drink liquor at
an establishment.
The county has not grown
because of the lack of economic
activity in the area. If we want that
to change, we have to change and
give ourselves an opportunity to
grow. Liquor by the drink is not a
cure-all for this community, but
it is a change that might lead to
some growth. It might lead to more
restaurants, the kind with the abil-
ity to succeed, rather than close
a couple months after opening.
Restaurants may lead to malls, or a
nicer theater.
And if any of that happens, it will
lead to jobs, which is mainly what
this area needs.
Voting yes to change this ordi-
nance is not forcing you to drink,
but rather you would be voting to
help your hometown grow. You
could be giving yourself the op-
portunity to have a better variety
of places to eat, shop, or possibly
watch a movie without leaving the
county to do it.
Nobody can force you to visit an
establishment serving liquor, so in
the end, your way of life does not
have to change.

An open letter to Marianna

This is not a letter about whom or
what is right or wrong. This is a let-
ter about what we have allowed to
happen to ourselves as Americans
in the last three years.
No matter the reason for the clos-
ing of the former Dozier School for
Boys ... it is closed. At this point,
neither boys nor employees will
Now, both Marianna residents
and former boys from the school
exist with hard feelings towards
one another. As relatives of White
House Boys pass through your
town, they are refused service at
restaurants and word is out that we
are not welcome in your town. Why
have we allowed this to happen?
The White House Boys know
that 99.9.percent of the residents

of Marianna are good, kind, and
caring individuals. They are people
who had absolutely nothing to do
with what happened many years
ago. Today they would immedi-
.ately, without hesitation, stand up
and stop the abuse of any child,
whether at the school or living next
door to them.
MostWhite House Boys moved on
and made something of their lives.
They are military officers, busi-
nessmen, authors, and several are
millionaires. We also are husbands,
fathers and most of us have now
become grandfathers. We are kind,
respectful. We do (at times) open
doors for ladies and we always help
those less fortunate than ourselves.
We do kind things because we
know very well what it felt like to be
"less fortunate."
When I wrote my book, "The
White House Boys An American
Tragedy," I only wrote about what
personally happened to me. I knew
there were other horror stories, but
I did not realize how many more. I
thought nothing could have been
worse for me at age 12 than living
at the Children's Home Society in
Jacksonville. How wrong I was!
After the treatment and the beat-
ings I received at the Florida School
for Boys at Marianna, I could barely
walk for days, but was ordered to
continue working as if nothing at
all had happened.
I will be the first to admit that be-
ing an employee at the school is not
an easy job. It is a thankless task
being called names behind your
back, having boys spit and curse at
you is very difficult to stomach. It
is a job I could never do, as I would
most likely be fired after the first al-
tercation with a boy acting in such
a disrespectful and hateful manner.
I remember standing behind sev-
eral of Dozier's female employees
at the closing of the White House
several years ago.
As one lady entered the White
House, she covered her mouth and
with tears in her eyes she said, "Oh
my God, it's true." I knew right then
there were actually some who did
care about what had happened to
us many years prior.
Even while at the school, I had no
feelings towards the town of Mari-
anna. I use to say to myself, "Golly,
I wish I could earn a pass and go
the movies and look at all the pretty
girls." Well, I never earned a pass.
Now I am now too old to care about
the pretty girls but I would one day
like to come to Marianna and go
see a movie. I would like to tip my
hat, open the door for someone at
a restaurant there, smile, and say,
"Good morning."
All that has happened is very
unfortunate, but we cannot allow
these differences to destroy who
we are as a people. Those who
abused us are all gone (except one).
You and I are the only ones left to
remember, and we should never
allow events from the past to come
between us for you are innocent
-just as I wish to be.
Brunswick, Ga.

Sea turtle nesting season
begins in Panhandle
turtle nesting season has begun
in the Florida Panhandle.
From now through the end of
October, sea turtles will come

ashore at night to lay their eggs.
South Walton Turtle Watch
director Sharon Maxwell expects
a healthy season a year after the
SBP oil spill.
Last year, all turtle eggs were
dug up along the Gulf Coast and
relocated to Florida's Atlantic
Coast. Maxwell says there's no
need for that this summer.
Still, Maxwell worries about
the dropping number of nests,
down to 25 to 30 in recent years
from 58 nests in 2000.
Maxwell says her group won't
publish the dates when nests are
found or their exact locations.
She says people have used that
information in the past to plan
parties to watch the eggs hatch.

Gov. Scott signs welfare drug testing bill

The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE People apply-
ing for welfare benefits must pay for
drug testing under a bill Gov. Rick
Scott signed into law Tuesday.
If they pass, they'll be reimbursed
for the cost of the test. If they don't,
they won't receive temporary gov-
ernment assistance. Scott signed
the bill in Panama City along with
another measure that bans the de-
signer drug MDPV; which is sold as
bath salts.
The drug testing bill was a prior-
ity for Scott and an issue he cam-
paigned on.
"While there are certainly legiti-
mate needs for public assistance,
it is unfair for Florida taxpayers to
subsidize drug addiction," Scott
said in a press release issued after
the signing. "This new law will en-
courage personal accountability
and will help to prevent the misuse
of tax dollars."
The law is expected to be quickly

Challenged. The Florida chapter of
the American Civil Liberties Union
issued a release criticizing it and
noting that a previous attempt to test
welfare recipients for drugs in Mich-
igan was ruled unconstitutional.
"The wasteful program created by
this law subjects Floridians who are
impacted by the economic down-
turn, as well as their families, to a
humiliating search of their urine
and body fluids without cause or
even suspicion of drug abuse," said
Howard Simon, executive director
of the ACLU of Florida. "Searching
the bodily fluids of those in need
of assistance is a scientifically, fis-
cally, and constitutionally unsound
policy. Today, that unsound policy is
Florida law."
Florida was one of several states
that took up the issue this year de-
spite a similar Michigan law that
was thrown off the books after a
four-year legal battle. The 1999 law
to randomly test welfare recipients
was stopped after five weeks. An

"While there are certainly
legitimate needs for public
assistance, it is unfair for
Florida taxpayers to subsidize
drug addiction."
Gov. Rick Scott
appeals court eventually ruled it
The ACLU said it is looking into
suing to challenge the law.
Scott also signed a bill that makes
it illegal to possess MDPV sold as
bath salts. Those convicted could
face up to five years in prison. The
drugs are being sold in malls, head
shops, convenience stores and other
retail outlets, often near displays of
energy drinks. They can be snorted
like cocaine, smoked or injected.
The drug has been likened to LSD
and can produce hallucinations, se-
vere paranoia, seizures, aggression,
increased blood pressure and kid-
ney failure.

Emotional testimony marks 6th day of Anthony trial

The Associated Press

ORLANDO.- The moth-
er of a Florida woman
charged in the death of
her 2-year-old daughter
cried and buried her face
in her hands Tuesday as
prosecutors played a se-
ries of 911 calls, including
one that reported that the
toddler had been missing
for 31 days.
Cindy Anthony became
emotional during the
sixth day of testimony in
the murder trial of her 25-
year-old daughter, Casey
Anthony. During the final
911 call played, Cindy An-
thony said her daughter
had just told her that her
2-year-old granddaughter,
Caylee, had been missing
for 31 days.
Casey Anthony is
charged with first-degree
murder and could be sen-
tenced to death if convict-
ed. She has pleaded not
guilty and initially said a
babysitter took the child.
Her defense attorney now
contends Caylee died in
an accidental drowning
in the family's swimming
pool. The prosecution says
Caylee was suffocated by
duct tape placed over her
The 911 calls solicited
the most emotional wit-
ness testimony to date.
On a handful of occa-
sions, jurors could be seen
glancing in the direction
of Casey, who also cried
several times during her
mother's testimony. Jurors
also looked toward Casey
when the prosecution
played a recording of her
first call home from jail
following her July 16,2008,
Judge Belvin Perry
stopped the proceedings
twice for 5-minute recess-
es to allow Cindy Anthony
her to regain composure.
During one of the breaks,
her husband, George An-
thony, had to hold her up

as they walked outside.
Minutes before listen-
ing to the 911 call in the
courtroom, Cindy Antho-
ny recounted how she had
overheard Casey Anthony
telling her brother that
Caylee had been missing
for a month
"I lost it," CindyAnthony
said between sobs. "I just
went into the room and
yelled at Casey, 'What do
you mean she's been gone?
Why didn't you tell us?'"
Later in the day, Casey's
friend Amy Huizenga tes-
tified about witnessing an
argument between Casey
and her mother had when
she tracked Casey down at
her boyfriend's apartment
July 15 the same day of
the 911 calls.
"It was very confron-
tational," Huizenga said.
"A massive explosion of
mother and daughter."
Huizenga also testified
about text messages she
exchanged with Casey in
late June in which Casey
spoke of needing to get rid
of a "bad smell" in her car.
"There was definitely a
dead animal plastered to
the front of my car," Casey
tested Huizenga.
Earlier in the morning,
Cindy Anthony also tes-
tified about the car that
Casey Anthony had been
driving. The car was aban-
doned and then towed
to a lot where her father
picked it up .in mid-July
2008. In the 911 call, Cin-
dy Anthony described the
odor in the car as that of
a dead body. But she said
Tuesday that it was merely
an. expression she used
and at that moment she
didn't think a body had
been in the car. Prosecu-
tors contend the odor in
the car came from hu-
man decomposition, but
defense attorneys claim it
was from rotting garbage.
Cindy Anthony said she
opened the car's windows
and trunk to air it out, and

Predicting 2011 hurricane season could be tough

The Associated Press
tough task of guessing
what hurricane season
will look like could be even
more difficult this year for
forecasters, who won't be
able to rely on the relatively
predictable forces known
as El Nino and La Nina.
So far, the National Hur-
ricane Center in Miami is
predicting that the season
that begins on Wednesday
will be busier than normal,
with as many as 18 pamed
tropical storms, three to six
of them major hurricanes.
El Nino and La Nina
- warming and cooling
trends in the ocean that can
either rev up hurricanes
or suppress them are
expected to be essentially
neutral, complicating any
predictions. The last time,
temperatures were neu-
tral was 2005, when hur-
ricanes Katrina and Rita

"With a strong La Nina or

is much easier," said Dan
Kottlowski, senior meteo-
rologist at AccuWeather.
com. "Since we don't have
a strong signal toward El
Nino or La Nina, there's
somewhat more uncer-
tainty in trying to deter-
mine how strong this sea-
son will be."
The La Nina effect is a
cooling of Pacific Ocean
waters near the equator.
It decreases wind shear
in the Atlantic and can
give storms extra giddyap
as they form. It has been
linked to above-average
hurricane seasons in the
Atlantic. But it appears to
be weakening.
The opposite phenome-
non, El Nino, warms Pacif-
ic waters, increases wind
shear and can blow storms
apart. But El Nino isn't
happening this season.
La Nina helped make last

year the third-most ac-
tive hurricane season on
record, said meteorologist
Jeff Masters, who Writes a
popular weather blog. Last
year, there were 19 named
storms, 12 of which be-
came hurricanes, includ-
ing Earl, which sideswiped
North Carolina just before
Labor Day weekend and
was the first hurricane
to threaten New England
since 1991.
The seasonal average is
11 named storms, includ-
ing six hurricanes, two of
them major.
Meteorologists say La
Nina also contributed to
this past winter's barrage
of blizzards in the northern
United States, heavy sum-
mer flooding in Australia
and recent tornadoes in
the Southeastern U.S. But
those events are no indica-
tion of what hurricane sea-
son might be like.

Game 1 of the NBA finals
against the Dallas Maver-
icks on Tuesday night. "So
it's unfortunate. I wish
him the best and the or-
.ganization, the university'
will come back. It's one of
the best universities that
we have in America."
Nicklaus is an Ohio
State legend. Not only is
he a native of Columbus,
Ohio, where the school
is based, but The Jack
Nicklaus Museum is in
the heart of the Buckeyes'
athletic complex.
"Well, obviously the
cover-up was far worse
than the act," Nicklaus
said Tuesday in Dublin,
Ohio. "And bnce you got
the cover-up, it became
a situation where Jim
had to say some things
that turned out to be that
weren't exactly truthful.
And so that's where he got
himself in trouble.... I feel
very bad for Jim. He's a
nice man."
Nicklaus' grandson,
Nick O'Leary, signed

football for Florida State.
Nicklaus said he would
have been thrilled if the
tight end one of the
nation's most coveted re-

cruits in the 2011 signing
class had chosen to
play for Tressel.
Nicklaus said when
Ohio State was recruiting
his grandson, everything
went by the book. Nick-
laus and Tressel were at
the same game last fall
when the coach was look-
ing at O'Leary and some
of his teammates. But in
accordance with NCAA
rules, Nicklaus said Tres-
sel did not spend much
time with him at that
game, other than a quick
Tressel's decade-long
run as Ohio State's coach
ended because he was
aware players received
cash and tattoos for au-
tographs, championship
rings and equipment and
did not tell anyone at Ohio
State or the NCAAwhat he
knew for more than nine
months. That violated
both NCAA rules and the
terms of his own contact
with the university.
"What's going to hap-
pen, I don't know beyond
this point," Nicklaus said.
"'The NCAA, it's more in
their hands. Once one of
these things happens, by
the time they get through
digging they're going to
find whether somebody
had a hangnail someplace
or not."

Dear Annie: Our nation's schools pro-
vide the majority of American children
with at least one of their.daily meals.
Unfortunately, more than 90 percent of
the school meals do not measure up to
national nutrition standards. This is wor-
risome because we know how important
food is to the development of healthy
bodies and minds.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is
considering requiring our schools to add
more fruits, vegetables and whole grains
to their breakfast and lunch meals, while
also lowering the levels of fat, sodium
and calories.
These measures are steps in the right
direction, but to keep these efforts mov-
ing forward, our nation's policymakers
need to know they have the public's
Our website, www.HealthySchoolFood
'sNow.org, has information on how your
readers can help ensure all students are

Look first at the North hand. He opens one
club and partner responds one spade. What
should North rebid? After you have decided,
peek at the South hand also. You are in four
spades. West leads a low diamond. What would
be your line of play? There is no, "perfect" rebid
with that North hand. But the best is two no-
trump. The hand is too strong for three clubs, W
and a jump to three spades ought to deliver a
fourth trump.
Over two no-trump, you would rebid three
hearts, and North would continue with three
spades to show his three-card support. Then t
you, having described 5-4 in the majors, should
bid three no-trump, strongly suggesting 5-4-2-
2 distribution with weak spades. North would
correct to four spades.
The right line in four spades seems to be to
take the first trick with the diamond ace, cash
the king-queen of hearts, and call for a low club.
If West has the ace and takes your king with it,
then cashes a high diamond before returning
a club, win that in the dummy and guess how
to continue. Here, though, East rushes in with
the club ace, cashes the diamond queen, and
exits with a club to your king. If East gets in and
can lead the last club, you might suffer an over-
ruff by West. To try to keep East off lead, play
a spade to dummy's queen. Here, that finesse
works and you lose only one spade, one dia-
mond and one club.

Dear Erik Olson: Those of us who re-
member school lunches understand that
expedience and cost were the overriding
factors in what was served.
While some children learn about
'healthy food at home and are disciplined
enough to make wholesome choices on
their own, many are not as well educated
about proper nutrition or have difficulty
resisting temptation.
Healthful offerings at school can make
a huge difference. We hope our readers
will check your website and see how they
can help our children grow up strong and

Obama gains foothold as glaring issues subside

The Associated Press

after Republicans alarmed Dem-
ocrats with a midterm election
wave, President Barack Obama
has shaken off the jitters and
found his political footing de-
spite sluggish economic growth
and deep public anxiety about
the direction of the country.
The White House now displays
an air of confidence, bolstered in
part by achievements such as the
killing of Osama bin Laden by
U.S. commandos and the finan-
cial success of an auto industry
that Obama bailed out over the
objections of many.
Obama is also benefiting from
the absence of negatives. The
economy, while lethargic, is
growing. The private sector is
creating jobs. Natural disasters,
while deadly and plentiful, have
not developed into governmen-
tal crises. Skyrocketing gas pric-
es, which fed the public's eco-
nomic fears, are now subsiding.
And the GOP's signature budget
plan, ambitious in its spending
reductions, has lost its luster
with the public.
"It is likely he will be re-elected,
in my opinion," veteran Republi-
can pollster Wes Anderson says.
What's more, the president
appears to be enjoying the still

lingering but more intangible
effects of his election in 2008, a
watershed for the nation. Polls
show Obama with strong favor-
ability and likability ratings even
as he faces ambivalence over his
handling of the presidency.
Former New Hampshire Re-
publican Party chairman Fergus
Cullen said the symbolic power
of Obama's election as the first
blackpresidentcarries enormous
good will that will be difficult for
Republicans to overcome.
"Centrist voters and the ones
who decide elections are still
fundamentally rooting for the
guy," Cullen said. "People who
don't view politics in ideological
terms give him the benefit of the
doubt, and that is an incredible
political asset to have."
Obama's inner circle, al-
ways wary of sounding too
self-assured, is not hiding its
"I would rather be us than
them," said one of the presi-
dent's top political advisers, Da-
vid Axelrod.
Pollster Andrew Kohut of the
nonpartisan Pew Research Cen-
ter compared Obama's place in
2011 to President Ronald Rea-
gan's at a similar point during his
first term, more than a year be-
fore he won re-election in 1984.
"They both came from an ide-

logical wing of the party and
they are perceived that way. Both
were hit.with real bad economies
and the public turned on them,"
Kohut said. "Right now, Obama's
ahead of where Reagan was in
Still, this view of the president
is a snapshot in time. Events
can test presidents and sour the
public mood quickly. Axelrod is
quick to note that it would have
been hard to predict the turmoil
that erupted this spring in the
Middle East and in North Africa
or the Greek fiscal crisis last year
that caused the stock market to
plummet, and led employers to
"The things that worry me are
the things I don't know," he said.
Further instability in the Arab
world and increased tensions
with Pakistan could create the
image that Obama doesn't have
control over his foreign policy.
Consumer confidence has fluc-
tuated and remains far below
the levels that indicate a healthy
.economy. The Conference Board
announced Tuesday that its Con-
sumer Confidence Index, which
had risen in April, fell in May
amid worries over inflation, job
prospects and personal income
Though the private sector has
been creating jobs, public hiring

by local and state governments
is weak and unemployment re-
mains high at 9 percent, a dan-
gerous level for a president seek-
ing re-election. Since the Great
Depression, only Presidents Rea-
gan and Gerald Ford confronted
unemployment rates as high or
higher at some point in their ad-
ministrations. But the rate has

dropped since November's 9.8
percent high. For Obama, the
trend line could be as important
as the unemployment rate itself.
Presidents Jimmy Carter,
Reagan and George H.W. Bush
all faced unemployment rates
higher than 7.5 percent in the
final months of their re-election

Feds set to target

healthcare fraud

The Associated Press

getting personal now. In
a shift still evolving, fed-
eral enforcers are target-
ing individual executives
in health care fraud cases
that used to be aimed at
impersonal corporations.
The new tactic is raising
the anxiety level and
risks for corporate hon-
chos at drug companies,
medical device manu-
facturers, nursing home
chains and other major
health care enterprises
that deal with Medicare
and Medicaid.
Previously, if a company
got caught, its lawyers in
many cases would be able
to negotiate a financial
settlement. The company
would write the govern-
ment a check for a number
followed by lots of zeroes
and promise not to break
the rules again. Often the
cost would just get passed
on to customers.
Now, on top of fines paid
by a company, senior ex-
ecutives can face criminal
charges even if they weren't
involved in the scheme but
could have stopped it had
they known. Furthermore,
they can also be banned
from doing business with
government health pro-
grams, a career-ending
Many in industry see the
more aggressive strategy
as government overkill,
meting out radical punish-
ment to individuals whose
guilt prosecutors would be
hard pressed to prove to a
The feds say they got
frustrated with repeat
violations and decided to
start using enforcement
tools that were already on
the books but had been al-
lowed to languish. By some
estimates, health care
fraud costs taxpayers $60
billion a year, galling when
Medicare faces insolvency.
"When you look at the
_history of health care en-

forcement, we've seen a
number of Fortune 500
companies that have been
caught not once, not twice,
but sometimes three times
violating the trust of the
American people, submit-
ting false claims, paying
kickbacks to doctors, mar-
keting drugs which have
not been tested for safety
and efficacy," said Lewis
Morris, chief counsel for
the inspector general of
the Health and Human
Services Department.
"To our way of thinking,
the men and women in the
corporate suite aren't get-
ting it," Morris continued.
"If writing a check for $200
million isn't enough to
have a company change its
ways, then maybe we have
got to have the individu-
als who are responsible for
this held accountable. The
behavior of a company
starts at the top."
Lawyers who repre-
sent drug companies say
the change has definitely
caused a stir, but the end
result is far from certain.
"People are alarmed,"
said Brien O'Connor, a
partner in the Boston of-
fice of Ropes & Gray. "They
want to know what facts
and circumstances would
cause the Justice Depart-
ment to indict someone
who hadn't even known
about the misconduct.
They are doing all they can
to achieve compliance."
Others say high-powered
corporate targets won't go
"If the government does
continue to press its cam-
paign against individuals,
we will see the limits of
the government's theories
tested," said Paul Kalb,
who heads the health care
group at the law firm of
Sidley Austin in Washing-
ton. "In my mind, there is a
very important open ques-
tion as to whether individ-
uals can be held criminally
culpable or lose their jobs
simply by virtue of their
