Food for thought
ne hundred and 30 years ago, Americans en-
joyed the first Labor Day observance, a "work-
ingman's holiday" created by the labor.industry
to celebrate the worker.
Today, it's a holiday for most everyone, although some
hold jobs that require their presence on a national

holiday of summfier was meant to mark, and take time
between the hot dog grilling and late summer swims to
consider our nation's worth ethic and the advances it
In a broader sense, the issue of jobs remains a con-
cern. Last week marked the 50th anniversary of the Rev.
Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech from the
Lincoln Memorial on the national mall in Washington,
D.C. Jobs were a cornerstone to Dr. King's platform,

And then there's the state of jobs today. Jackson
County's outlook is relatively bright; at 6.1 percent, our
unemployment rate is significantly lower than Florida's
7.4 percent. Nationally, unemployment is dropping,
registering 7.4 percent at the end of July.
We anticipate ,continued improvement, not just
for Jackson County but for the entire region. Here in
Marianna, officials work diligently to court industry and
tourism opportunities. And in November, Dothan will
be the site of an international U.S.-China manufactur-
ing symposium, with more than 400 Chinese industrial-
ists attending to discover how the labor force climate of

Water issue cannot wait 20 years
BY JON STEVERSON
I was proud to be stand-
ing with Gov. Rick
Scott when he recently
announced that Florida
would take historic
legal action to protect the
and people of Apalachic-
ola Bay and Northwest
This effort to ensurethal
Florida is treated fairly
as demands continue to
increase upstream is not
the slightest bit "frivo-
lous." It exemplifies Gov.
Scott's commitment to
fighting for the future of
Florida families that de-'
pend on fresh water from
the Apalachicola River
to not only put food on
their tables, but also the
tables of people across the
nation who desire seafood
from Apalachicola Bay.
For 20 years, Florida has
attempted to relieve the
economic and environ-,
mental harm caused by
reduced water flows and
by Georgia in the Apala-
Flint (ACF) River Basins,
both through legal chal-
lenges to the Army Corps
of Engineers' water man-
agement practices and,
through negotiations with
Georgia and Alabama. : '
In that time, Georgia's
demands on the ACF
system have continued
to grow so much so, that
Georgia now uses more
than 90 percent of the
t water withdrawn from
the system. Florida uses a
mere 2.5 percent.
The metro Atlanta area
alone withdraws 360 mil-
lion gallons per day from
the Chattahoochee River

of water for public sup-
ply than all 16 counties
and municipalities of

whole wheat might not win fans
after one year. Several news stories
picked up a quote by a school ,
board member in Harlan, Ky.You
might not want to read what she
had to say if you're having your'

"They say it tastes like vomit,"
said Myra Mosley.
The Daily Caller suggested that
the quote was a condemnation
of the first lady's efforts to make
school lunches healthier. The Call-
er's headline read, "Kentucky stu-
dents to first lady Michelle Obamna:

But the students did not say
that. The Harlan Daily Enterprise
reported that Mosley twice said,
the kids were complaining about
the 1 percent fat milk they now are
served. A school official explained.
they're using the same brand of
milk, but the kids are used to the
taste of 2 percent and whole milk.
The Department of Agriculture
has a sensible, new "Offer versus
Serve" policy. At lunch, instead of
serving everybody the same five
required foods meat or meat
alternative, grains, fruit, vegetable
andmilk schools offer the five
and allow each student to choose
three and decline two. It's hoped
that will reduce waste, bring kids
back to the lunch line and stop
school districts from heading for
the exits of the lunch program.

King of Iowa and Tim Huelskamp

nation's students on a diet.
Elementary pupils' lunches now
may contain 650 calories, middle,
school 700 calories'and high school
850 calories. Some high school
football players complain their
lunches weren't filling enough to

ahead, though. In 2014, the federal

Investing in select dividend

Gov. Scott hits Crist,
The Associated Press
da Gov. Rick Scott, heading
into what could be a tough
re-election fight, is using
his appearance before a
conservative group to bash
a potential rival while also
calling for large tax cuts in
the coming year.
Scott is speaking Friday
to Americans for Prosper-
ity in Orlando. A transcript
of his prepared remarks
given to The Associated
Press before his speech
shows that he will advo-
cate cutting $500 million
in taxes and fees next year.
The' Republican gover-
nor will maintain that if
Florida has a budget sur-
plus in 2014,' it should use
some of the extra revenue
to cut taxes.
"It's your money, not
the government's," Scott's
transcript says. "Working
with the' Florida Legisla-
ture, we have cut taxes
year after year, even while
forcing government to live
within its means. Thisyear,
we are committed to re-
turning even more money
to the hard-working Flori-
da families who earn it."
Scott will also use the
speech to directly criticize
former Gov. Charlie Grist.
Crist, who became a Dem-
ocrat last year, is expected
to challenge Scott in the

promote the stimulus.

Nearly 400,000 policyholders might move from insurer
The Associated Press
dreds of thousands of Flo-
ridians who rely on Citizens
Property Insurance could
soon find themselves with
a new insurance company.
.State regulators last week
quietly signed off on a plan
to let 10 different insurance
companies absorb nearly
400,000 Citizens policy-
holders this November.
If the shift goes through
as planned, it will be a dra-
matic downsizing of the
company nearly a third
of all existing Citizens cus-
tomers. The state-created
Citizens is the largest resi-
dential property insurer in
the' state with 1.2 million
Customers are automati-
cally shifted to a new insur-
er unless they object.
As many as a third of
Citizens customers tradi-
tionally balk at moving,
especially since some of
the companies that have
absorbed Citizens poli-
cies are smaller, Several
companies that previously
absorbed Citizens policies
went insolvent, although
Citizens officials point out
that hasn't happened in
the past three years.
Richarl Koon, deputy
said the decision by the
10 companies to pursue
Citizens customers is "in-
dicative of a stronger ho-
meowner's insurance mar-
ketplace in our state."
Gov. Scott and other poli-
ticians have been pressur-
ing Citizens to scale back
its size due to fears a ma-
jor storm could wipe out
its reserves. Citizens has
the ability to place a sur-
charge, or what some call
a "hurricane tax," on most
insurance bills, including
auto insurance policies,, if
it can't cover its claims., But
Citizens has been able to
build a sizable surplus in
the past few years due to
an absence of hurricanes.
Citizens did not have a
geographic breakout of the
policyholders who have
been chosen by the' 10
companies although some
of the customers chosen
live close to the coast.
The nearly 400,000 poli-
cyholders that have been
selected will receive no-
tices at least 30 days in ad-
vance that provide instruc-
tionfs on how they can elect
to remain with Citizens.

first reported by ESPN.,' ,
Tebow's stay with the Patriots last-

th end of his NFL career. The former
Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback
played in just three of New England's
four preseason games and was sacked
four times in the finale, a 28-20 win over
the NewYork Giants on Thursday night.
.The Patriots have carried just two
quarterbacks in 'three of the past four
seasons, and with Ryan Mallett en-
trenched as the backup to Tom Brady,
Tebow's challenge was a difficult one,
even before .the' preseason started.
Then, he went out and posted a" quar-

touchdown passes to go along with two
interceptions and seven sacks.

After sitting out the third preseason
game, a 40-9 loss at Detroit, Tebow com-
pleted 6 of 11 passes for 91 yards with
two touchdowns and one interception
against the Giants. ,
"It's not just one game (that matters),"
,Belichick said Friday about the player
evaluation process, "although .every
game is important. But the body of work,.
the camp, the rate .of improvement,
the ability to do the things that play-
ers are going to be asked to do at their
respective positions (also matters)."
Tebow has played for the Denver
Broncos and New York lets as well, af-
ter a memorable career at Florida, in -
which he was a part of two national-
championship teams. :
Signing Tebow brought little financial
risk to the Patriots.' Two people with
knowledge of the deal told The Associat-

person said he wouldmake the veteran's

Dear Annie: Last year, my best friend of
20 years married someone who comes
from a very wealthy background. The
wedding was beautiful.jI spent hundreds
of dollars on travel to get an expensive
bridesmaid dress, attend the bachelor-
ette party and, go to the wedding. I toler-
ated the typical "let's talk my wedding to
death," while my relationship with my
boyfriend was ending.
At the wedding, I discovered thatthe
groom told his friends and family that
I had slept around at the bachelorette
party. This was a total lie, and the bride
knew it. The bride's pastis, let's say,'
seedy. But she allowed her husband to
tag me as part of that wild partying past
-a lifestyle about which I had fought
with her many, times .
SAfter her honeymoon, she sent me a
lengthy e-mail detailing the end of our .,
friendship. She said she could no longer,
handle my "drama" and claimed I was
forcing her to chQose between her mar-.
riage and our friendship. ".
Welhad 20 years of friendship through
thick and thin., She wasn't available for
me when I needed her, buti,! wasn't jeal-
ous of what she had. I was truly happy
for her. .' : .
Mind you, her husband is a pot-smok,.
ingfast-food employee. Their lifestyle is
entirely subsidized by his parents., But I,,
never once said I thought her husband '
was a loser, even though he treated me
terribly at the wedding. Whywould my'
friend do this to me?
S '- HURTING IN MIAMI
Dear Hurting: We think your friend is
intimidated by her boyfriend and his
family, and the request to cutyou off
came from him. This could simply be,
a gesture of shedding her old life and
starting over, and your feelings toward
her groom maybe more apparent than
you realize. But it could also be more
insidious- he could be`a controlling
husband who wants to isolate her. .Please
see.if you can meet with'herin person.'
S Otherwise, send her an email saying you
are sorry she feels the friendship must

Though excellent fliers,
they are, by nature, rather
