A growing majority of Florida voters disapprove of the job President

brother, Gov. Jeb Bush (right), if he seeks the presidency in 2008.


Bush bashing?

President, Florida's

governor get low marks


Poll shows Florida
would oppose Jeb
run for president.,
By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - A grow-
ing majority of Florida voters
disapprove of the job
President Bush is doing and
say it's unlikely they would
vote for his brother, Gov. Jeb
Bush, if he seeks the presi-
dency in 2008, a poll released
Wednesday shows.
Russell Schweiss, a
spokesman for Jeb Bush,
responded to the poll by
Quinnipiac University of
Hamden, Conn., in a brief
e-mail saying only 'The gover-
nor is not running." That just
reiterated what the governor
repeatedly has said, but if he
should change his mind the
poll indicates he could lose his
home state.
Fifty-eight ,percent of
Florida voters polled said they
probably or definitely would
not vote for the governor in a
presidential race while only
33 .percent said they probably
or definitely would vote for
him.
The governor still could
rely on Republicans - 62 per-
cent of them said they proba-
bly or definitely would vote for
him while 26 percent indicat-
ed they likely would not do so.
However, he would draw little
support from Florida's
Democrats and independents.
The poll shows President
Bush's job approval rating
continuing to slide ,in Florida
as it has nationwide.
Thirty-seven percent of
Florida voters approved of the
president's performance,
while 61 percent disapproved,
his lowest rating in any
Quinnipiac Florida poll.
His approval has steadily
dropped from a high in
September 2004 when 50 per-
cent of Floridians polled gave
him a favorable rating and
47 percent did not.
The overall disapproval, mir-
rors the way Floridians
respondedto a question about
the president's handling of
Iraq. Florida voters disap-
proved 64 to 31 percent. Sixty
-percent of Floridians also said
going to war in Iraq was the
wrong thing to do while only
36 percent said it was the right
thing.
Floridians also favor two,

Gootee said the resignation

Decision on Joseph Smith's

fate now in a jury's hands


Both sides rest
in Carlie Brucia
murder trial,

By MIKE SCHNEIDER
Associated Press
SARASOTA - A "moun-
tain" of evidence points to
the. guilt of a former
mechanic charged with kid-
napping, raping and killing
Carlie Brucia, whose abduc-
tion was caught by a securi-
ty camera, a prosecutor said
in closing arguments of the
defendant's trial
Wednesday.
Jurors have heard and
seen taped jailhouse con-
versations of Joseph Smith
talking about the crimes,
testimony about a jailhouse
confession he gave to his
brother, DNA evidence link-
ing him to a semen stain on
Carlie's shirt, and above all
else, the security camera
images of a tattooed man in
a mechanics uniform grab-
bing Carlie by the wrist and
leading her away,
.prosecutor Craig Schaeffer
said.
Carlie's Feb. 1, 2004 dis-
appearance from a car wash
parking lot attracted world-
wide attention because of

broadcast repeatedly on tel-
evision., Her half-naked
body was found more than
four days later at a church
property.
"All together, all point to
Joseph.Smith as the person
who committed these
crimes," Schaeffer said.
Smith, a 39-year-old for-
mer auto mechanic and
father of three daughters, is
charged with first-degree
murder, kidnapping and
capital sexual battery. If
convicted, he may face the
death penalty. Jurprs were


expected to begin
deliberating this morning.
Smith declined to testify,
and his attorney, Adam
Tebrugge, waived his right
to make a closing argument
Wednesday afternoon.
Later, outside the court-
house, Tebrugge conceded
it was an unusual strategy,
but said making a closing
argument, would serve no
purpose.
"I believe that I tried the
best case possible,"
Tebrugge said. "I believe

that I would be glad to help
him move on in his career."
Gpotee said the undersher-
iff position will remain vacant
until at least the beginning of
next year.
"We're going to reevaluate
and promote from within,"
Gootee said. "I have no inten-
tions of brining anyone else in
at this time. We have some
good people here and we are
looking to do some
reorganization after the
holidays."

program

needs

funding

Counseling project
has been going
strong for 2 years.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
School district officials are
hoping to find funding for an
elementary school counseling
program which meets the
emotional and psychological
needs of students.
Project CARES (Counseling
And Resources for Elementary
Schools) has been in place
locally for three years, but it is
scheduled to conclude next
year as its grant comes to an
end.
The program originated
when the school district
received , a
federal grant
in July 2003,
which pro-
vii e d

$370,000 a
year. The Spivey
school district has received the
federal funding for three years,
but the program funding is
slated to end June 30, 2006.
Gloria Spivey, Columbia
School District Safe and Drug-
Free Schools coordinator, said
the school district hired four
certified guidance counselors
with the funding, and the coun-
selors share time providing
services between the county's
eight elementary schools and
work with pre-kindergarten-
fifth grade students as part of
the grant.
The Project CARES guid-
ance counselors provide coun-
seling services for students
with emotional, family, and
physical problems.
'They provide counseling
services to kids who are having
problems at school, whether
their parents are going through
a divorce; if there is sickness in
their family; if they are failing in
school or being disruptive,"
Spivey said.
"Something the teacher is
not able to deal with, a lot of
times they'll send the children
to the guidance counselor to try
to find the underlying reason of
why the child is behaving that
way. They work with any type of
problem that keeps the child

the traffic switchover from Business Point Drive and Bascom Norris

Guards: Juvenile
center is troubled
MIAMI - State officials
insist that things are
improving at Miami's troubled
juvenile detention center, but
new credibility questions
arose Wednesday when
current and former guards
told legislators that a guards'
basketballgame forced a
lockdown because of a
personnel shortage.
The inability of state
Department of Juvenile
Justice officials to explain
what happened - or even
confirm whether or not the
lockdown actually occurred -
exasperated several members
of the House Juvenile Justice
and Justice Appropriations
committees at a joint hearing.


"We're going to get to the
bottom of this because
somebody is not telling the
truth," said Rep. Gus
Barreiro, R-Miami Beach,
chairman of the Justice
Appropriations panel. "You
have to ask again and again
and again to get the truth."
Added Rep. Frank
Peterman Jr., D-St.
Petersburg: 'Thisis
discouraging."
Miami's 226-bed juvenile
detention facility has been
under close scrutiny since the
June 2003 death of 17-year-old
Omar Paisley, who
succumbed to a burst
appendix.that went untreated
for three days despite his
pleas for help. Two nurses are
awaiting trial on manslaughter
and third-degree murder

TAMPA - A federal judge
declared a mistrial Wednesday
in the trial of a Hooters
restaurant founder charged
with tax evasion.
Lynn "L.D." Stewart, 62,
was accused of conspiring
with accountant and longtime
friend Michael Maricle to
defraud the government. He
was tried on two counts each
of tax evasion and filing a false
return.
U.S. District Judge Susan

which began deliberating
Monday, sent a note to the
judge for the third time saying
it could not reach a verdict.

Man gets life in
prison shooting
SANFORD - A
maintenance man was
sentenced Wednesday to life
in prison for fatally shooting
his former girlfriend in front
of her family at a church.
Willie Crowder 61, of
Altamonte Springs, was
convicted in October of
second-degree murder for
shooting Ann Horne-Savage in
the fellowship hall of Peaceful
Zion Baptist Church in
November 2003.
He asked the victim's family
to forgive him Wednesday, the
Orlando Sentinel reported. He
also said he forgave them,
though for what was not clear.
"God bless them and keep
them," he said.
Witnesses said the woman's
15-year-old daughter, brother
and sister all struggled with
Crowder after his first shot,
but the man chased her into
an annex and fired more as
she begged for help.

Bush prepares backup plan to save vouchers


By BRENDAN FARRINGTON
Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE - Gov. Jeb
Bush is preparing a backup
plan to keep voucher students
in private schools in the event
that the state Supreme Court
finds his original voucher plan
unconstitutional.
The idea would be to pro-
vide tax credits to corpora-
tions who give the students
scholarships, which would
eliminate public money being
transferred to the private
schools, the majority of which
are religious schools.
"We think this is an amaz-
ing program that provides

EDITORIAL


Trial brings


horrors to


front page

The terms "sexual predators"
and "sexual offenders"
sounds bad enough, but
when the details of a
heinous crime and the
specific evidence surfaces, such as it
has in the case of the tragic abduction,
assault and murder of Carlie Brucia, it's
nauseating.
There is no punishment available on
Earth to fit the crime committed against
this little girl last year in Sarasota.
A man is on trial in the case. He is
innocent until proven guilty.
During the daily trial reports, the
horrific details keep surfacing as to
what happened on that day in early
2004. Abducted at a car wash, seen on
surveillance tape, Brucia was tortured
and tormented, sexually assaulted and
murdered.
We can't imagine the horror and the
fear experienced by the victim.
Not every case is as dramatic and
disturbing as this one, but the whole
state and the entire world is watching
the outcome. The disappearance of the
girl made national broadcasts when it
happened. The arrest was big news.
Now the trial is at the forefront.
Pay attention to the details and think
about them the next time you consider
allowing your children to play outside
without supervision.
Be careful and ever-mindful of where
children are and what they are doing.
Don't risk anything or take anything
for granted.

COMMENTARY


A new role for NATO:


The fight against terror


World War II
was fought
against
totalitarianism
of the Nazi,
fascist and Japanese militarist
varieties. After the war, the
North Atlantic Treaty
Organization was created to
defend the free world from the
totalitarian threat represented
by communism and the Soviet
Union.
A half-century later, the
.Soviet Union is gone and
communism is widely seen as a
failed movement So should
NATO now fade away, too?
Jose Maria Aznar, the former
Spanish prime minister, thinks
not. Instead, he believes,
NATO should be "reinvented"
so that it can address militant
Islamism, the totalitarian
movement that has been
utilizing suicide terrorism as a
weapon of war from New York
to Madrid to London to
Baghdad to Mombassa to
Istanbul to Tel Aviv to Amman
to Bali and beyond.-
Why this transformation is
imperative and how it can be
achieved is the subject of a new
report drafted by two
farsighted policy analysts:
Rafael L. Bardaji and Florentino
Portero, representing Madrid-
based think tanks led by Aznar
(the Strategic Studies Group
and the Foundation for
Analysis and Social Studies).
This week, Aznar presented
his NATO report at the
American Enterprise Institute
in Washington. He also
received an endorsement for it
from the Committee on the
Present Danger, whose
chairmen are former Secretary
of State George Shultz and
former Director of Central
IntelligenceR. James Woolsey,
and whose honorary chairmen
are'Sens. Joseph Lieberman,
D-Conn., and Jon Kyl, R-Ariz.
Aznar believes that NATO's
credibility and future are on the
line. More important than that:
"It is our freedom that is at
stake and NATO must do
whatever is needed to defeat
those who threaten it."


Clifford May
info@defenddemocracyorg

NATO might begin simply
by recalling and reaffirming its
original purpose: 'To preserve
collectively freedom and
democracy." Aznar argues that
the alliance should openly
acknowledge that the major
threat to those institutions now
comes from totalitarian
movements that seek support
among the world's 1.2 billion
Muslims, and whose leaders
state openly that "they are
against democracies without
distinctions."
"We should take very
seriously their ambitions, no
matter how ridiculous or
delirious they may look to us,"
the report argues. In the 1930s,
Americans and Europeans
knew there were "fanatics"
planning terrible atrocities,
but they failed to respond
effectively, paving the way to a
global conflict that would
consume millions of lives. To
repeat that mistake, Aznar
warns, would be both
irresponsible and tragic.
The report proposes
aggressive measures to.prevent
terrorist organizations and
their sponsors from acquiring
weapons of mass destruction
- a circumstance that could
make the atrocities of 9/11
look like a practice run.
It calls for improved
coordination of homeland-
security measures and.
enlarging NATO to include
other democratic nations such
as Australia, Japan and Israel.
Perhaps most
controversially, it recommends
"approval of democracy-
building as an objective of
peace operations over and
above the goal of nation-
building." Accomplishing this,
the report contends, will


require the "creation of an
operational command for post-
conflict democracy-building
operations, establishment of a
joint fund to finance these
missions and creation of a
'Partnership for Freedom.'"
In other words, Aznar wants
to see a multilateral effort
working against "regimes
based on fear and oppression"
and doing everything possible
to foster the development of
institutions that guarantee
human rights for those who, do
not now enjoy them.
Any proposal supported by a
group of statesmen as diverse
as Aznar, Shultz, Woolsey,
Lieberman and Kyl should be
taken seriously by the Bush
administration. And, at a time
when even some Republicans
appear to be going wobbly on
the war, this report has the'
advantage of increasing
multilateralism -without
either ceding powers to the
United Nations or asking favors
of such fair-weather friends as
France's Jacques. Chirac.
The Aznar report concludes
by predicting that "the threat of
Islamist terrorism will end up
becoming the greatest priority
sooner or later." Waiting, he
believes, will prove costly. By
contrast, "standing up to our
enemies as soon as possible is
the best way of eliminating
their destructive potential."
Today, however, NATO is
"badly prepared to fight and
defeat Islamist terrorism
because it continues to be
anchored in the strategic
situations of the past ... NATO
must become a veritable
Alliance for Freedom, one
whose primary objective is to
defeat terror ... and to secure
collectively our liberties, our
democracies, our values and
our way of life before it is too
late."
Those are strong words.
They come from Europeans
who seek not rivalry with the
United States, but a renewed
and reinvigorated partnership.

Foundation for the Defense of
Democracies, a policy institute
focusing on terrorism.


House and Senate

make sense. Some
would make it
easier for investors to buy and sell
stocks. Some would relieve
middle-class taxpayers facing the
pinch of the alternative minimum
tax for the first time. And some
would benefit businesses and
individuals whoni Hurricane


Katrina tore asunder.
But here's the problem: The
whole package will cost as much
as $70 billion.
When you also consider the
hikes given this year to the
Pentagon, homeland security
initiatives and guaranteed
programs like Social Security, the
Treasury can't afford $70 billion
more in lost revenue. Not if
Americans want to keep the $317


billion deficit under control.
SThe best approach for the
Senate and the House would be to
break the tax cuts into separate
packages. Congress should start
with providing tax relief to Katrina
victims by year's end.
That would cost the Treasury
about $10 billion.
Part of the work is identifying
how to finance a new round of
business tax cuts. Just as

Year end planning can make April


income tax season less daunting


By EILEEN ALT POWELL
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK - Taking
some simple tax and financial
planning steps in the next few
weeks can save you money
next spring.
Thafs because things you
do now - like donating
money to a charity or topping
off your retirement account -
can lower your state and fed-
eral income tax bills when you
file by April 17. (Youll have a
couple extra days to do your
taxes next year because the
usual filing day of April 15 falls
on a Saturday.)
One of the easiest steps to
take is to make sure you've
contributed the maximum
allowed to your retirement
plan. Contributing to a compa-
ny-sponsored 401(k) plan
packs a double wallop because
you're saving for your future
and you're doing it with pretax
dollars, which reduces your
taxable income.


Filing away
The share of tax returns that
were filed.electronically rose
to 52 percent this year, up
from 47 percent in 2004.
Individual tax returns
S E-filing receipts
140 million _. 130.9 132.4
million million -


2004 2005


SOURCE: Internal Revenue Service AP

This year, the limit on 401(k)
account contributions is
$14,000. Those 50 and older
can add an additional $4,000.


The same limits apply to
403(b) retirement accounts
for workers in nonprofit
organizations and
457 accounts for government
employees. Next year, the ceil-
ings go to $15,000 for most
workers, with a $5,000 "catch-
up" provision for those 50 and
older.
'We're certainly not over-
saving as a nation," Rande
Spiegelman, vice president of
financial planning at the
Schwab Center for Investment
Research, said of the nation's
low savings rate. 'There's a
big worry that millions of
baby boomers will be retiring
without adequate resources."
Those who don't have
employer-sponsored accounts
can set up their own
Individual Retirement
Accounts or Roth IRAs at
banks, brokerages and other
financial institutions.
The contribution limit for
IRAs this year is $4,000, with
an additional $500 allowed for


those 50 and older. Next year,
the basic contribution limit
stays at $4,000, but the catch-
up contribution rises to $1,000.
Traditional IRAs are funded
with pretax money, so they can
help reduce taxable income -
and taxes - now. Roth IRAs
don't get a tax break now, but
grow tax-free forever.
When it comes to tax plan-
ning, the first decision you
need to make is whether
you're going to claim the stan-
dard deduction or itemize, said
attorney Bob D. Scharin, who
edits the Practical Tax
Strategies newsletter for tax
information publisher RIA.
The standard deduction for
the 2004 tax year is $5,000 for
individuals, $10,000 for couples
filing jointly and $7,300 for
heads of household. According
to the Internal Revenue
Service, about two-thirds of the
more than 130 million
Americans who file taxes claim
the standard deduction each
year.


Delta, pilots in court over reduced pay


By MICHAEL J. MARTINEZ and
MADLEN READ
AP Business Writers

NEW YORK - Delta Air
Lines Inc. asked a U.S.
Bankruptcy Court judge
Wednesday to void its
contract with Delta's pilots'
union so the beleaguered air-
line can impose deep wage
and benefit cuts and avoid
further financial erosion.
With several uniformed


Delta pilots looking on in a
standing room-only court-
room, Delta attorney Jack
Gallagher said the airline
valued its pilots and tried to
negotiate reductions, but
ultimately failed.
Faced with rising fuel
costs, Delta is seeking to
slash $325 million from its
collective bargaining
agreement with its pilots,
saying the money is needed
to keep its operations


running. The, ALPA, which
has offered $90.7 million in
concessions, has threatened
to strike if the court grants
Delta's request.
The hearing started with
union attorney Bruce Simon
asking U.S. Bankruptcy
Judge Prudence Cairter
Beatty to remove herself
from deciding on the union
contract, claiming Beatty
showed bias through
comments in earlier court


hearings in which she said
pilots wages were "hideously
high."
Simon cited a Nov. 10
Associated Press story in
which Beatty was quoted as
saying: "What's really weird
is that anyone agreed to pay
them that much money to
begin with."
Beatty denied Simon's
request, saying that her
comments, made in jest,
were misinterpreted.


Xbox 360, Microsoft's home entertainment strategy


By ALLISON LINN
AP Business Writer

REDMOND, Wash. -
When Microsoft Corp.
debuted its first Xbox in the
fall of 2001, the videogame
console was like a teenager -
decked out in black, eager to
fit in with the hip crowd and
embarrassed to be seen with
its parent company.
The newest version, Xbox
360, has no intention of being
a boring grown-up.
But Redmond-based
Microsoft says it has learned
from some of its youthful mis-
takes. And after years of dis-
tancing the Xbox from its less
hip progenitor - maker of
computer operating systems
and spreadsheet software -
Microsoft is now more blatant-
ly touting the console as inte-
gral to a long-term plan to
dominate the connected
home.
"I think the thing people
have to realize is that digital
technology is changing the
home in a profound way," said
Robbie Bach, president of
Microsoft's Entertainment


and Devices division and its
Chief Xbox Officer.
When the Xbox 360 debuts
in North America Nov. 22, it
will still mainly aim to please
so-called hardcore gamers -
primarily young men who
spend hours each week teth-
ered to a videogame console.
Analysts say that's smart since
the console doesn't offer
enough other capabilities for
those not addicted to gaming.
"First and foremost, Xbox
360 is a game machine, and so
is anybody going to go out
and buy an Xbox 360 if they're
not a gamer because it's got
multimedia capability? No,"
said Van Baker, a research
vice president with Gartner
Inc.
But over time, the company
is hoping that other features
will draw in more family mem-
bers. These include the ability
to listen to music - even
tracks from rival Apple
Computer Inc.'s iPod - look
at family photos, watch DVDs
and play electronic puzzle and
card games.
Analysts also expect

garet High Lovett. She had been a
cashier for many years having

and then she was the office book-
keeper for Foodland of Lake City.

She was a member of the Church of
God.

Former Cuban citizen sues


Castro over alleged torture


Associated Press

TAMPA - A former Cuban
citizen who says she was tor-
tured as a political dissident
filed a $10 million lawsuit
against Cuban President
Fidel Castro and others in his
government.
In'the lawsuit filed in state
court on Tuesday, Belkis-
Ferro, 51, said she was tor-
tured at a Cuban hospital that
was a front for a military
prison.
Her attorney, Edgar
Guzman, said the challenge is
trying to serve the defen-
dants. If they are served but
do not appear in court,
Guzman can get a default ver-
dict in their absence. Several
other people who sued Castro
got default judgments in their
favor because the Cuban


government ignored the
lawsuits.
The Cuban government
said it wouldn't defend itself
against Ferro's suit.
"We strongly reject this
ridiculous accusations," said
Lazaro Herrera, a spokesman
for the Cuban Interests
Section in Washington. "It
does not even deserve
anyone to pay attention to it."
Guzman said he will work
with the Cuban embassies in
Spain and Venezuela to serve
Castro, brother Raul Castro,
the Cuban government and
its military.
"I don't think Fidel is going
to walk into a courtroom with
his defense attorney," he
said.
The suit also names the
estate of Eriberto Mederos as
one of the defendants.


Mederos, who the suit says
was a nurse who orchestrated
the torture, died in the
United States in 2002. A judg-
ment could include liens on
property or bank accounts
held by the estate, Guzman
said.
Ferro, who lives in
Hillsborough County, claims
she was placed in a military
camp at age 16 and forced to
pick tobacco. When she
began to rip plants from the
ground rather than prune
them, she was sent to
Mazorra, a psychiatric
hospital.
At the hospital, Ferro was
tortured with electric shocks
and injected with insulin even
though she was not diabetic,
she alleged. The shocks
burned her and the insulin
made her lose consciousness.


State board chairman questions

response to teacher shortage


Associated Press-

JACKSONVILLE - Better
pay, incentives and recruiting
would help Florida solve its
teacher shortages, state offi-
cials have told the Florida
Board of Education.
Board Chairman Phil
Handy got those responses
Tuesday when he asked why
shortages in critical teaching
areas, including reading, for-
eign languages, math and sci-
ence, have continued
although officials have
known about them for years.
"We haven't invested
enough," said Education
Commissioner John Winn.
"The amount of money in
those programs has not kept
pace, so we need to invest
more."
SHandy said the trend trou-
bles him because schools
often turn to teachers not
certified, in critical.areas to':r
mal-ke- up lor .sh.irtag-s. F
*example, 17 percent of new--
Florida reading teachers last
year were not certified in that
area.
"The most important
aspect of learning is having a
qualified teacher in the


classroom," Handy said.
"We're not putting high-quali-
ty teachers in the classroom."
Florida is expected to heed
32,400 new teachers next
year including 10,600 in criti-
cal areas. New teachers are
needed to replace those who
retire or leave for other jobs
to keep up with Florida's
growing population and to
meet a constitutional
requirement to reduce class
sizes.
State law requires the
board to identify the subject
areas that need more teach-
ers, but Handy said it also
should come up with
solutions.
Salaries and benefits are
the main reasons teachers
leave the profession, said


Pam Stewart, deputy chancel-
lor for educator quality
improvement. Florida ranks
31st nationwide in average
salary and 21st in starting
pay, she said.
Stewart said the $1.7 mil-
lion the state pays to reim-
burse teachers who go back
to school to become certified
in high-demand areas should
be increased. That compares
to $67.7 million in bonuses
paid to teachers whose stu-
dents pass Advanced
Placement and International
Baccalaureate tests.
Winn said the state could
boostiits recruiting by such
approaches as forgiving stu-
dent l6ans for college math
majors'' if they become
teachers.

FEMA blames Broward

for victims still in shelters


Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE -
The Federal Emergency
Management Agency says
Broward County officials are at
fault for the 270 people still liv-
ing in an emergency shelter
more than three weeks after
Hurricane Wilma hit.
FEMA spokesman Ricardo
Zuniga told the South Florida
Sun-Sentinel on Tuesday that
county officials have not taken
advantage of a disaster relief
fund to pay for hotels and trail-
ers for people left homeless
while they wait for federal tem-
porary housing requests to be
processed.
He said Miami-Dade County
has used the fund to. pay for
hotel rooms, while Monroe


County will be reimbursed for
providing trailers to hurricane
victims. FEMA pays for at least
75 percent of the cost, with the
state and county splitting the
rest, he said.
"That's what their job is, and
people should be held account-
able," Zuniga said. "We don't
want to impose our solutions
on folks, and we keep being
blamed. We're the big targets."
County Commissioner
Kristin Jacobs, whose term as
Broward County mayor ended
Tuesday, said FEMA has
repeatedly rebuffed county
proposals for emergency shel-
ters. Storm victims living at
McNicol Middle School in
Hollywood must be out by the
end of the week when the
shelter closes.

Commission to hear


regional presentation

By TONY BRITT tonight's 7 p.m. Columbia to help pay for critically neec


tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Transportation needs
across the state continue to
increase every year as more
people move to Florida.
To combat those growing
needs, the state legislature
has created a program
designed to improve growth
management planning and
funding where state, local gov-
ernments and the private sec-
tor can be partners in meeting
the increasing demand for
regional travel and commerce.
The program that was
developed as a result of the
legislation is called TRIP
(Transportation Regional
Incentive Program). During


County Board of
Commissioner's meeting,
372 W. Duval St., county offi-
cials are scheduled to be
briefed on the program.
Jordan Green, professional
engineer with the Florida
Department of
Transportation, is scheduled
to make a presentation about
the program, where he'll
explain advantages of joining
the program.
TRIP was created to
improve significant trans-
portation facilities in regional
transportation areas.
According to reports, state
funds are available to provide
incentives for local govern-
ments and the private sector


CARES: Funding a must

from being able to function or
do well in school."
The federal government's
title for the program is ele-
mentary and secondary coun-
seling, but Spivey said the gov-
ernment has never funded the
secondary counseling portion
of the program.
She said the overall goal of
Project CARES is to improve
student opportunities for
school and life success.
"Project CARES has been
'extremely successful and it's
provided counselors and
administrators in elementary
schools with another place for
them to send children to
someone who has the time to
sit and deal with the child and
do the follow-through," she
said. "It's been a great success
and we are diligently trying to
find dollars to be able to keep
this program."
Spivey estimates that more
than 50 percent of the school
district's elementary students


are affected by the counseling
services offered through
Project CARES.
"A lot of times, the Project
CARES counselors are used
as a broker or a facilitator, to
help the family or student get
to where they need to be," she
said. "The CARES counselors
can only do direct services.
They are not involved in
paperwork in the schools like
many of our school coun-
selors. They can do individual
therapy and group therapy.
Basically, as long as they are
doing direct student services,
the principal at the school sits
with them and decides what
they want them to do."
Spivey said officials are
looking at several alternative
ways to provide funding to
continue the program, includ-
ing seeking other grants and
using existing funding from
other programs that can be
connected to the Project
CARES goal.


d-


ed projects that benefit region-
al travel and commerce.
The DOT will pay for
50 percent of project costs, or
up to 50 percent of the nonfed-
eral share of project costs, for
public transportation facility
projects.
Assistant County Manager
Lisa Roberts said TRIP is a
new program the DOT has
implemented and Green will
tell about the program and
what the eligibility and
funding requirements are.
In other business, county
officials are scheduled to
appoint a new chairman and
"vice chairman for the upcom-
ing year and review a road
closing request in Mason City.

During seven days of
testimony and presenting
of evidence, prosecutors
built their case using the
security-camera images of
the abduction and the testi-
mony of Smith's friends
and co-workers who said
they recognized Smith
when they saw the images
on television; the testimo-
ny of Smith's brother,
John, who told jurors his
sibling had confessed to
having "rough sex" with
the girl and killing her, and
then told him where the
body was; and forensics
experts who linked
Smith's DNA sample with
a semen stain on Carlie's
shirt and who testified that
Carlie's hair matched
strands found in the
vehicle Smith drove.

Lake City to get $3.3 million more

for planned drinking water facility


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Lake City will receive anoth-
er $3.3 million for its $12.5 mil-
lion drinking water facility as
part of a low-interest
Department of Environmental
Protection loan. The loan is
part of the DEP's State
Revolving Fund Program and
is the latest installment for
work on the project.
"This loan will help us on the
financing of the new water
treatment plant that is current-
ly under construction, immedi-
ately east of Lake City
Community College," said Joe
Cone, city manager for Lake
City. 'We had a commitment
for the funding from last year of
$2.5 million and we were on the
list of approved projects for this
year. The DEP cannot commit
its funding beyond a certain
period and after the last session
of the legislature, they've gone
through all the hoops and now
we know that this one is in
place, so we're all set. This is a
part of the overall financing
package. There's some local
money and some state money
involved with it."
While the latest DEP low-
interest loan installment was


for $3.3 million, Cone said the
total commitment from the
state on the entire project is
about $7.5 million.
"We're looking forward to
the third funding cycle as well,"
he said.
DEP reports say the original
loan was for planning and
designing drinking water sys-
tem improvements and the
new funding will be used for
construction.
Cone said the project for the
water plant has been in
progress for about six years,
and the city was added to the
DEP's list of projects eligible
for funding about five years
ago.
The state also granted Lake
City a $200,000 grant, which
allowed the city to proceed
with preliminary engineering
and prepare additional detailed
information that was needed in
order to get a full commitment.
That commitment was given
last year and bids for the proj-
ect were awarded during Fall
2004 and construction started
last January.
"The estimated time frame is
completion in the fall of 2006,"
Cone said, noting the project is
on schedule. "It's' about a
two-year project."


The need for the new facility
developed years ago when city
officials noticed the demand
exceeded the capacity of the
current plant.
"As the community contin-
ues to grow, that problem is
just going to become more and
more frequent," Cone said.
Lake City currently has a
six million gallon-per-day water
treatment facility. The new
facility will be a nine million
gallon-per-day facility and the
treatment process will be more
effective and modern.
'The existing plant, which
was completed in the early '70s,
is over 30 years old and has
antiquated technology in the
building in the treatment
process," Cone said. "The new
facility will expand the capacity,
is built in a modular process so
if we need another two million
gallons, we just sink two more
wells and we put one more tank
on. It will be relatively inexpen-
sive with an ultimate build-out
of 20 million gallons - which
should last the city until 2050."
Cone said the entire project
was done on premise of an,
edict from city council, which
said the city would not have a
rate increase to the customers
to improve the service.

across Midwest, leaving two dead


By RYAN LENZ
Associated Press

MADISONVILLE, Ky. -
Nearly three dozen tornadoes
ripped through the Midwest,
part of a huge line of thunder-
storms that destroyed homes
and killed at least two people.
"We heard a weird sound
coming through, kind of a
whistle," said Penny Leonard,
37, who sought shelter in the
basement of a hospital
Tuesday in the western
Kentucky town of
Madisonville. "I thank God
I'm safe."
Meteorologists said a cold
front moving rapidly east col-
lided with warm, unstable air
from the south on Tuesday to
produce the thunderstorms
that stretched from the Gulf of
Mexico to the Great Lakes,
spawning funnel clouds and
tornadoes. ' in parts of
Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana,
Illinois and Tennessee.
The National Weather
Service's Storm Prediction
Center had preliminary
reports of at least 35 torna-
does in the five states, spokes-
woman Peggy Stogsdill said
Wednesday at the center in
Norman, Okla.
It was the third outbreak of
twisters this. month. One
tornado on Nov. 6 killed

23 people in southern Indiana,
and nine tornadoes struck
Iowa on Saturday, killing one
woman.
Roofs of homes were caved
in, walls were blown out and
entire buildings were blown
off foundations in parts of
Madisonville on Tuesday.
One person was killed at
Benton, Ky., when the storms
destroyed a mobile home, said
Lori King, public information
officer for Marshall County
Emergency Management
Services.
'There is not a lot left,"
King said Wednesday. "The
mobile home flipped off the
foundation at least once
but possibly several times.
It caught fire shortly
afterward."
Along with tornadoes, thun-
derstorms in Indiana pro-
duced wind of more than
100 mph and as much as two
inches of rain, causing scat-
tered flooding, said meteorol-
ogist Jason Puma at the weath-
er service in Indianapolis.
A teenager was killed when
her car went out of control on
a flooded road and overturned

Greek and Afghan soldiers close the site of Monday's suicide attack in Kabul, Afghanistan, on
Tuesday.


Afghan minister says al-Qaida

was behind suicide attacks


By DANIEL COONEY
Associated Press

KABUL, Afghanistari - Al-
Qaida and other militants
have smuggled explosives,
weapons and millions of dol-
lars in cash into Afghanistan
for a resurgent terror cam-
paign, the country's defense
minister warned on
Wednesday.
His comments came after
an unprecedented spate of
suicide assaults - the latest
on Wednesday when a
bomber attacked a U.S. mili-
tary convoy in the southern
city of Kandahar, killing three
civilians.
Intelligence indicates that a
number of Arabs and other
foreigners have entered
Afghanistan to launch suicide
attacks, Abdul Rahim Wardak
told The Associated Press in
an exclusive interview.
Besides explosives, the
weapons smuggled into


Afghanistan include remote-
controlled timing devices and
other computerized detona-
tors for bombs, he said. He
'declined to give a specific
amount of smuggled money,
but said it was in the millions
of dollars.
'There has been ... more
money and more weapons
flowing into their hands in
recent months," Wardak said.
"We see similarities between
the type of attacks here and in
Iraq."
He said al-Qaida militants
were increasingly teaming up
with local rebels from the
ousted Taliban movement to
undermine President Hamid
Karzai's U.S.-backed govern-
ment because they have real-
ize their influence is waning
as the country.
"There is no doubt that
there is a connection between
Taliban and al-Qaida and
some other fundamentalists,"
he said.."In most cases, the.


suicide bombers are foreign-
ers ... from the Middle East,
from neighboring countries.
... It is a new trend."
It has long been believed
that the Taliban and al-Qaida
maintained ties after U.S.-led
forces ousted the regime in
2001for harboring Osamabin
Laden after the Sept. 11
attacks on the United States.
But the recent bombings, and
Wardak's comments, rein-
force fears that they've
merged some of their forces.
Until two months ago, sii-
cide bombings had been rela-
tively rare in Afghanistan,
with only a few reported in
the past year, unlike in Iraq.
But nine such assaults have
occurred nationwide starting
on Sept. 28, when a uniformed
man on a motorbike detonat-
ed a bomb outside an Afghan
army training center where
soldiers were waiting to take
buses home; killing nine
people.


Six more American service

members die in Iraq Wednesday


By ROBERT H. REID
Associated Press

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Five
U.S. Marines were .killed in
fighting with al-Qaida-led
insurgents near the Syrian
border and an Army soldier
died of wounds suffered in
Baghdad, making Wednesday
the second deadliest day for
American forces in Iraq this
month.
Eleven other Marines were
wounded Wednesday in
Obeidi, 185 miles northwest
of Baghdad, according to a
New York Times reporter
traveling with U.S. forces.
A U.S. Marine statement
confirmed the five deaths but
made no mention of wounded.
The statement also said
16 insurgents were confirmed
killed in the fighting.
Elsewhere, a soldier from
the Army's Task Force
Baghdad died Wednesday of,
wounds suffered the day

Three cases

of bird flu

detected
Associated Press
BEIING - Chinese health
officials Wednesday confirmed
the country's first three human
cases of bird flu.
Two cases were confirmed
in the central province of
Hunan and one in the eastern
province of Anhui, the official
Xinhua News Agency
reported.
The report did not elaborate.
But Chinese and World Health
Organization experts had been
studying the case of a 12-year-
old girl and her brother, both of
whom fell ill after their village
in Hunan suffered a bird 'flu
outbreakin poultry. The girl
died but her brother recov-
ered.
China has reported
11 outbreaks in chickens and
ducks over the past month
nationwide, prompting authori-
ties to destroy millions of birds
in an effort to contain the virus.
The government , also
announced an ambitious effort
Tuesday to vaccinate all the
country's more . than
14 billion farm birds.


"bi:i; ',* -' tirr I, ,,, ,d sid,.: ,:m b "
exploded northwest of the
capital on the previous day,
the U.S. command said.
Three other soldiers were
killed Tuesday in a roadside
bombing in the same area.
But it was unclear if the sol-
dier who died Wednesday was
injured in the same attack.
The six deaths made
Wednesday the deadliest day
for American forces in Iraq
since Nov. 2, when seven
service members died in four
separate attacks. At least
51 U.S. service members
have already died in Iraq this
month.
For the Marines, it was the
worst single-day loss since
they launched an offensive
Nov. 5 to push al-Qaida-led
insurgents from a series of
towns along the Euphrates
River used by foreign fighters
to slip into the country from
Syria.
A Marine statement did not


git'--. f ny derail- :t ti._
Wednesday losses, and names
of the victims were withheld
pending notification of their
families. They were assigned
to Regimental Combat Team
2 of the 2nd Marine Division.
However, the Times'
embedded reporter said an
explosion occurred as a
squad entered a farm house
in Obeidi. Insurgents then
racked survivors and res-
cuers with' small arms and
grenade fire before other
Marines could recover, the
dead and wounded and kill
the attackers, the newspaper
said.
A Marines statement con-
firmed that U.S. and Iraqi
.forces were meeting "strong
resistance" in Obeidi - the
third town attacked during
the Operation Steel Curtain
offensive - because insur-
*gents there "believe they are
trapped and have nowhere
else to go."


French arson attacks continue


By EMMANUEL GEORGES-
PICOT
Associated Press

PARIS - Parliament gave
final approval Wednesday to
extending France's state of
emergency for'three months
after the government said the
powers are still needed to end
the country's worst civil unrest
in four decades.
The Senate voted 202-125 to
extend emergency powers
.until February. The extra pow-
ers - which were approved by
the lower house on Tuesday -
allow regional and local offi-
cials to impose curfews and
permit police searches at


night, among other measures.
Interior Minister .Nicolas
Sarkozy told the Senate that


tensions in


troubled


neighborhoods justified con-
tinued state of emergency pow-
ers. The number of towns
affected by unrest dropped to
79 overnight, down from 102
the previous night and more
than 300 at the peak of the
unrest, he said.
"Seventy-nine is. naturally
too many," Sarkozy added.
"The future cannot be built on
violence."
The leftist opposition says
the emergency powers, first
put in place Nov. 9.for a 12-day
period, are no longer needed.
Criticism has also mounted
among others concerned that
France is compromising its val-
ues and risked further enflam-
ing passions. Dozens of groups
held protests in Paris on
Wednesday.
At a rally that drew several


hundred people, demonstra-
tors demanded what they
called a "social state of emer-
gency" that gives a voice to
immigrants and their French
offspring.
But Sarkozy said the emer-
gency powers would be used
responsibly arid only where
necessary. He told the Senate
that 75-80 percent of the nearly
3,000 people arrested were
already known to police.
National police said vandals
set fire to 163 vehicles

Musharraf appeals for $5.2 billion in aid


By MUNIR AHMAD
Associated Press

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan -
Pakistan's president appealed
Wednesday for -more than
$5 billion in aid to rebuild the
earthquake-ravaged north,
but said his country will fend
for itself if the world doesn't
deliver.
The appeal came as the
United Nations warned again
that thousands could die from
cold, disease and hunger in
the quake zone this winter


and announced that
Secretary-General Kofi Annan
will tour the destruction
ahead of a key donors confer-
ence Saturday in the Pakistani
capital, Islamabad.
President Gen. Pervez
Musharraf said that Pakistan
had. so far received "negligi-
ble". funds from donors, but
expressed confidence it could
raise the $5.2 billion needed
"for relief and reconstruction
and ' sustainable
rehabilitation."
"We hope the international


community assists us in this
hour of need," he told
reporters in Rawalpindi, near
the capital. "We should be
able to raise this amount. I
have spoken to world leaders,
and their responses have
been very positive."
The magnitude-7.6 quake
on Oct. 8 destroyed the
homes: of about 3 million peo-
ple, leaving hundreds of thou-
sands living in tents while an
unknown number have no
shelter at all.

Tigers to play in preseason classic tonight


Mario Sarmento
Phone: 754-0420
msormento@lakecityreportercom

Down the

stretch

they come

Week 2 of
the
playoffs is
upon us,
and
District 2-2A champion and
state runner-up Madison
County is still alive. The
Cowboys, who went 8-0 this
season, waxed 5-5 Walton
High last week 41-7. That
sets up a showdown with
Pensacola Catholic High on
Friday, which ousted district
runner-up Taylor County
High 24-16 in their first-
round matchup.
Bolles High (9-1) faces
South Sumter High (9-1) in
another second-round
game. The winner will face
Madison in the state
semifinals on Nov. 25.
In other games in the
bracket, Clewiston High
(6-3) will play St.
Petersburg Catholic High
(7-3) and Chaminade
Madonna High (7-2) faces
Gulliver Prep High (7-1) at
1 p.m. on Saturday.
The state champion will
be decided on Dec. 3 in
Miami at Dulphin-i Sladiuim.
The NFL regular season
is wrapping up, which
means a lot of people are
gearing up for their fantasy
football playoffs. If you
have a stud on your team
like LaDainian Tomlinson
of the San Diego Chargers
or Shaun Alexander of the
Seattle Seahawks, you're
guaranteed 20-30 points a
week from just that one
position. But if you happen
to have a player like
Philadelphia Eagles quar-
terback Donovan McNabb;
who has been injured and
without Terrell Owens for
two weeks now, you might
have to make some moves
to shore up your roster
going into the final weeks.
Those who have
McNabb and are looking
for a quick fix can pick up
Tampa Bay QB Chris
Simms, who goes against a
suspect Atlanta Falcons.
defense this week.
Another nice option could
be Kurt Warner. Once
fantasy gold, Warner has
produced as far as yards are
concerned since he.
reclaimed his starting job
two weeks ago. And the
Arizona Cardinals face
Warner's old team, the
defensive sieve known as the
St Louis Rams, this Sunday.
That could mean a ton of
yards and TDs for the
former Gateway grocery boy.
As far as running backs
go, if you don't have a
money back like
Tomlinson, Edgerrin James
or Alexander, you could
pick up the new "Nigerian
Nightmare," Sam Gado of
the Green Bay Packers.
This fifth-string running
back - who only got the
nod because Ahman Green,
Najeh Davenport, Tony
Fischer and RaShard Lee
all got hurt - exploded for
103 rushing yards and
three TDs last week. And
this week's matchup is
against the Minnesota
Vikings on Monday, notori-
ously one of the worst
defenses in the league. So
Gado might be as good a
play as Alexander and
Tomlinson this week.

Columbia High basketball is going
far afield for a preseason game, but
friendship found a way for a trip to
Pinellas County.
The Tigers play host Seminole High


at 7:30 p.m. today in the opening
round of the Coast Bank _
Preseason Tipoff Classic.
Seminole's head coach is
Bill Barnett, who headed up
the CHS program for eight
years before leaving to take
over the Warhawks. Barnett
coached Columbia head '',
coach Trey Hosford as a sen- Hosforc
ior and hired Hosford as an
assistant when he was looking for a
coaching job after graduating from


Warner Southern University.

"This is very exciting for
me," Hosford said. "I'm sure it
will be a little emotional for me
looking down at the other
bench. Coach Barnett did so
much for me as a player and
got me back here coaching. I
really look up to him. He's
been a big part of my life."
Barnett blazed into


Columbia with his Indiana basketball

CHS swim team celebrates



2005 season in grand style


Record-setting year ends
with Hawaiian-style
banquet at the Quality Inn.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia High's swim team had a lot
to celebrate and the Tigers did it
Hawaiian style at the 2005 awards
banquet Tuesday at the Quality Inn.
"Our main goal was to finish higher in
district and the team was fourth overall,"
coach Drew Sloan said in his season sum-
mary. 'The good thing about this team is
we are.losing only five seniors."
Those seniors - Ian Alvarado,
Jonathan Harley, Brad Rigdon, Amber
Mansmann and Amy Rowand - were


recognized and presented with scholar-
ship money from the booster club.
In addition to the District 2-2A suc-
cesses (the Lady Tigers placed third, the
boys were fourth), Columbia re-wrote
much of the record book.

records in the 100 Freestyle, 100
Backstroke and 50 Freestyle. Heather
SSmith lowered the standard in the 100
Breaststroke and Blake Dekle tied the
mark in the 100 Backstroke.
Columbia's 200 Medley Relay team of
Smith, Sherrod, Michele Allison and
Lindsay Beach set a new record. Smith,
Sherrod, Allison and Mansmann lowered
the time in both the 200 Freestyle Relay
and the 400 Freestyle Relay.
Athletic Director Billy Young present-
ed the Academic Award, which went to


Sherrod. iSherrod was also named Most
Valuable. She was a district champion
(50 Free) and the top points earner for
Columbia during the season.
Dekle was named Most Valuable for
the boys. He was top points earner for
the guys and qualified for region in two
events.
Other award winners were: Most

Indians

defeat

Newberry

Lady Indians tie,
Lady Tiger fall to
Suwannee High.
From staff reports

Fort White High scored
two goals in the space of one
minute in the first half and
Stephen Lynch made
18 saves as the Indians
defeated Newberry High in
a district game, 3-0 on
Wednesday night.
'We were really, really,
really fortunate," Indians
coach Bob Hochmuth said.
"Defensively, we just weren't
playing tight. We were giving
them way too much space."
That space resulted in 11
corner kicks for Newberry
to Fort White's zero, but
Lynch came up big every
time the Indians needed him.
"When you have alot of
pressure you can stay
focused," Lynch said. "It's
worse when you have no
pressure."
Mario Barrera set up Fort
White's first score on a goal
kick that split the defense
and found Andrew Sherrer
on a breakaway. Sherrer
made a run inside the penal-
ty area before pushing the
ball past the Panthers keep-
er to make it 1-0 Fort White
at the 30:49 mark.
Less than a minute later, a
Sherrer throw-in was head-
ed towards the net by Mike
Williams. The ball was
deflected to Adrian Agudelo,
who headed the ball into the
empty net for Fort White's
second goal:
The Indians got the
clincher at 18:15 of the sec-
ond half, when Danny Bowie
fed the ball to Sherrer for a
shot just outside the penalty
area. Newberry's goalie mis-
handled the ball and Travis
Collins was on the doorstep
for the goal.
Fort White (1-1-1, 1-0)
plays at Hawthorne High at
7 p.m. on Friday.

Fort White girls soccer
The Fort White girls soc-
cer team rallied from a 3-1
halftime deficit to tie New-
berry High 3-3 on Wednes-
day. Crystal Moulton scored
twice, and Kali Hunter
scored for the Lady Indians.
Fort White fell 8-0 to Oak
Hall High on Monday.
The Lady Indians (2-2-2,
0-1-1) plays at Hawthorne at
5 p.m. on Friday.

Lady Tigers soccer
Columbia High's girls
soccer team lost 4-1 to
Suwannee High at home on
Wednesday.
The Lady Tigers dropped
to 0-4, but got on the board
first and coach Beth Adkins
saw improvement.
"Our passing was excel-
lent," Adkins said. "We had
14 shots on goal and had
only three the last time we
played them. We scored the

all-century team. Hosford was,
a member of that select squad.
'This is the first year,"
Barnett said of the preseason
classic. "We decided for finan-
cial reasons to host a classic. It
is a good moneymaker for the
school. We had three teams
and, in a passing conversation
with Trey, I said, 'Why don't you
come on down and play in our
classic?' And here they come."
There is a bit more to it.
Barnett agreed to foot the.
bill for the Tigers to stay
overnight. (Columbia plays
Clearwater Central Catholic
High at 6 p.m. Friday.)
"He is putting us up - at
the beach," Hosford said. "I
wanted to play, but told him it
would be tough to justify
going that far for a classic. He


said, We'll take care of it.'"
Barnett, who is 29-21 in his
two years at Seminole, said his
team. is led by 5-11 junior
guard Bill Hobach, so that
matchup with Columbia's
guards will be worth.the trip.
Hosford said he and
Barnett stayed in contact
when Hosford was away at col-
lege. Barnett even traveled to
watch a Warner Southern
game when JIosford was out
with an injury.
"He was always just a phone
call away," Hosford said.
"Anytime I came home, he was
one of the first people I would
go by and see. He was like a
father-figure in a way and nlow
I consider him a close friend."
Barnett keeps tabs on his
former player and school.


"I am real proud not only of
Trey, but the job he has done
with the Tiger program,"
Barnett said. "I am real proud
of the success the Tigers have
achieved since my departure."
So, it's hard-charging
upstart vs. cagey old veteran?
That's the way it sounds.
"It's nice we can meet in a
friendly preseason classic,
when a win or loss is immate-
rial," Barnett said. "Neither of
us is concerned about the out-
come. It will be friendly com-
petition with good sportsman-
ship and not a win-at-all-cost
atmosphere."
"Coach Barnett set the bar
at CHS." Hosford said. "It will
be n with him and I look forward to
trying to get a victory."

Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) will
meet at Key Largo's
Sheraton Beach Resort, Mile
Marker 97, Nov. 30-Dec. 1.
The agenda for Nov. 30
focuses on hunting rules,
manatee protection, law
enforcement matters and land
acquisition commitments.The
agenda for Dec. 1 revolves
around marine issues.
During the first day of the
meeting, commissioners will
consider final action on the
FWC Division of Law
Enforcement's proposed
enforcement procedures and
educational efforts concern-
ing airboat sound reduction.
FWC staff has gathered input
from airboaters, sound
experts and residents who
complain about sound levels


produced by airboat engines

Also on Nov. 30, commis-
sioners will consider a rule
proposal to discontinue wild
hog hunting on the Bull Creek
Wildlife Management Area
(WMA) during the small-
game season and restrict behi-
cles to named. or numbers
roads or trails throughout the
area year-round.
Commissioners also plan
to review and discuss pro-
posed 2006-07 regulation
changes for wildlife and
freshwater fishing and a draft
procedural rule that would
incorporate the FWC's due
process procedures into a
rule, reorganize current pro-
cedural rules and repeal
obsolete rules.
The meeting will convene
at 8:30 a.m. both days and is
open to the public. Anyone

Deer plentiful in Osceola


By CHRIS MIKELL
Special to the Reporter

Hunting is a sport of
chance, mixed with a little
instinct and a lot of patience.
This is why some people
may hunt for years and never
get a shot at their dream deer,
while others on their first trip
into the woods can stumble
upon a 12-point buck, close
their eyes and pull the trigger.
With archery and muzzle-
loading gun seasons already
complete and general gun sea-
son to last until Jan. 8, 2006,
it's important to know where
to look for deer.
"The deer are there, but if
you're not in the right place,
you won't see anything," said
Scott Johns, a district wildlife
biologist for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission in Olustee.


Johns and the FWC currently
use a method called the Tyson
Track Count Index to gain a
rough estimation of the number
of deer in the Osceola National
Forest and other areas.
This year, the largest densi-
ties of deer are located in the
southeast corner of the forest,
just east of Ocean Pond and
the northwest extreme, near
Sandlin Bay.
The FWC monitors 266,000
acres of the Osceola National
Forest and places 40, one-mile
transects throughout the for-
est to obtain the index number.
Transects are mile-long
trails that are cleared of all
debris and smoothed over in
order for biologists to effec-
tively count the number of
deer tracks found on the trails
for a given period of time.
'There's 440 miles worth of
track-count data, which usually


takes four people two months
to gather," Johns said. ."The
population is stable, but we see
fluctuations from year to year."
, The statewide population of
deer is on the rise, according
to Dr. William Giuliano, an
assistant professor at the
University of Florida's
Department of Wildlife
Ecology and Conservation.
"Suburban areas are experi-
encing a high number of deer
these days," said Giuliano, who
believes this shows that the
population is in no immediate
danger. At the same time, the
deer population in the Osceola
National Forest seems to be
equally as high, if not over-
abundant, according to Larry
Maddox, a hunter from Lake
Butler.
"I've killed deer within 300
yards of where the campers
are sitting," Maddox said.

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-April
19): Be honest-with yourself
and others. Take any opportu-
nity to do things with friends,
relatives or neighbors. You can
teach others what you know
and learn something yourself.

TAURUS (April 20-May
20): You need to be social,
especially with people who can
help you move in a direction of
prosperity. Keep things simple
and don't lead people to believe
that you have more to offer
than you do. ***
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): You'll find it difficult to
contain your emotions. If you
don't want things to get out of
hand, clear the air and tell it
like it is. Someone you care
about will be understanding
and help you through
whatever ordeal you face.

CANCER (June 21-July
22): A sudden change of
events must not be looked at as
a negative. If you are quick to
react, you can see the benefit of
change. An older relative or

friend can offer you some good
advice. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Don't get left out because you
were hemming and hawing.
Make plans early so you don't
end up sitting at home alone.
You need to boost your confi-
dence, and by participating,
you will do just that. ***k*
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Watch what you say to
others. A problem with friends
or relatives will leave you feel-
ing emotionally tired. Do your
best to avoid arguments, but
don't let anyone get the better
of you. **
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Love, romance and
adventure should all be on
your mind and in your plans.
It's time you confirmed the way
you feel and what your inten-
tions are to the people around
you. Travel plans should be
discussed. *****

DEAR ABBY


Generous spirit solves burial

puzzle for wife and children


DEAR ABBY: "Aurora
From Milwaukee" wrote.that
she was concerned about
where she would be buried if
her first husband.died and she
was to remarry. You replied:
"Some widows (and widowers)
remarry with the understand-
ing that he or she would be
buried with the first spouse.
The logical and primary rea-
son is that this will give the
children from the first mar-
riage one place to pay respects
to both parents." You also said
she could ask that her remains
be cremated and.divided equal-
ly between both husbands.
My second husband provid-
ed me with a better solution.
My first husband and I were
Married for 25 years and had
three children. We divorced on
friendly terms. I had been mar-
ried to my second husband for
29 years when my first hus-
band died,leaving me to legal-
ly follow through with all his
wishes. At my suggestion, the
kids and my current husband
went to the cemetery to make
cremation arrangements. My
husband stood back until the
kids and I had completed the
purchase of a niche for hus-
band No. 1's urn. Then he
stepped forward and said, "If
it's OK with my wife, I'd like to
purchase the adjoining double
niche for her and for me when
our time comes." The kids
readily agreed, and I couldn't
have been more pleased.
As I write this, the urns we


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com
purchased are already waiting
in our new niche. Mine sits
between husband No. 1 and
husband No. 2. I hope this
helps your readers recognize
that not all families live in
hatred of exes and stepfami-
lies. - TWICE-MARRIED
IN THE USA
DEAR TWICE-MARRIED:
It certainly sets a worthy exam-
ple. Although the subject of
death and funerals is usually a
downer, I must confess that
some of the letters I received in
response to "Aurora's" ques-
tion made me smile. Read on:
DEAR ABBY: In a rural
cemetery in southeast Licking
County, there's a large black
tombstone bearing a woman's
name. She's buried between
"Darling Husband George"
and "Darling Husband Ray."
.Perhaps this will be of interest
to "Aurora." - JAMES MCC.,
NEWARK, OHIO
DEAR ABBY: When I was
about 5 or 6, I spent part of the
Summer at my grandma's, and
overheard her talking to her
sister about a woman whose
husband had died and been
buried in a large family plot.


Her second husband died and
was also buried there. When
the woman passed away, she
was buried between her two
husbands. - ARNOLD S.,
CENTERVILLE, OHIO
DEAR ABBY: My wife died
in 1997. I'm a veteran of World
War II, and we chose the usual
veteran's tombstone for her
grave. We had both her name
and my name inscribed on the
stone. She was buried in the
family plot at our local ceme-
tery.
My younger brother died in
2000. He was also a World War
II vet, and his widow chose a
veteran's tombstone for his
grave. His widow had both his
name and hers inscribed on
the stone. He was buried next
to my wife in the family plot.
My brother's widow and I
married each other in 2002.
Our marriage solved the prob-
lem posed by "Aurora." We
plan to be buried beside our
first spouses and second
spouses. - ROBERT IN
NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
DEAR ABBY: That letter
reminded me of a similar ques-
tion that appeared in your col-
umn years ago. The writer was
a man who had remarried after
his first wife died. He said he
wanted to be buried between
the two wives, "but tilt me
toward Tillie." - BETIY J.,
EUGENE, ORE.
