AROUND FLORIDA


Chavez will
get new attorney
MIAMI - The death row
inmate convicted of murdering
9-year-old Jimmy Ryce will get
a new court-appointed
attorney in his attempt to win
a second trial.
Miami-Dade Circuit Judge
Marc Schumacher allowed
attorney Lee Weissenborn to
withdraw Thursday. during a
hearing to discuss
preparations for a Dec. 5
evidentiary hearing ordered
by the Florida Supreme Court.
That hearing, meant to deter-
mine if there were errors
made during his trial, was
indefinitely postponed until
Chavez is appointed a new
lawyer by the courts,
Juan Carlos Chavez has
claimed ineffective counsel
and errors hindered his first
trial.
Weissenborn told
Schumacher that he could not
continue representing Chavez
because of the "attacks and
slander of me by the key
defense witness," former
Assistant Public Defender
Edward Koch.
Koch, who had been one of
the public defenders
representing Chavez at trial,
has alleged that Public
Defender Bennett Brummer
instructed the defense "to pull
their punches" in the trial
because it could have hurt
Brummer's chances for
re-election.
Schumacher, who presided
at Chavez's first trial, will
appoint his new attorney.
Chavez confessed to killing
Jimmy, who was kidnapped at
gunpoint and raped after
getting off his school bus near
his family's home in a rural
area of Miami in 'September
1995. That prompted a state
law bearing Jimmy's name that
keeps sexual predators in
custody even after they have
finished their prison sentences
if they are still considered a
danger.


Guidelines designed
to cut court costs
TALLAHASSEE - Revised
guidelines designed to cuto
court costs in civil cases by
using innovative technologies
such as computer disks and
videotaping received
unanimous approval
Thursday from the Florida
Supreme Court.
Judges will retain broad
discretion over assessing
costs, but should try to keep
them as low as justice allows,
the high court wrote in an
unsigned opinion.
'With this goal in mind,
the trial court should
consider and reward
utilization of innovative
technologies by a party
which subsequently
minimizes costs," the justices
wrote in a preamble to the
new guidelines.
They added that, by, the
same token, judges should
reduce awards to parties that
fail to take advantage of
cost-cutting technologies
such as putting documents
on disks to reduce copying
expenses and videotaping
pretrial interviews.
The high court accepted,
with a few modifications, the
guidelines as recommended
by the Florida Bar's Board of
Governors and Civil
Procedure Rules Committee.

Floridians introduce
catastrophe bill
TALLAHASSEE - A
national insurance
catastrophe fund based on
Florida's version was
introduced Thursday in the
U.S. House of
Representatives by two
members of Congress from
Florida.
Reps. Ginny Brown-Waite,
R-Brooksville, and Clay Shaw,
R-Fort Lauderdale, said in a
joint statement from
Washington, D.C., that the
legislation is intended to cut
homeowner insurance costs
and ensure insurance market


liquidity.
"Across the country we
have witnessed the
devastating effects of
hurricanes, tornados,
wildfires, snowstorms and
earthquakes to name a few,"
Shaw said. "Families and
businesses are suffering from
disaster fatigue and this bill is
designed to stabilize and
reinforce the insurance
market."
The proposed Consumer
Hurricane and Earthquake
Protection Fund, or HELP,
would provide reinsurance to
primary insurance companies
at lower rates than they can
get on the private market.
Despite the name it also
would cover tornados,
volcanic eruptions and other
disasters.

Jurors break
until Monday
TAMPA - Jurors in the
terrorism-conspiracy trial of a
former University of South
Florida professor ended their
third day of deliberations
without a verdict Thursday
and will break for the
weekend.,
The jury of six men and six
women is deciding whether
Sami Al-Arian and three other
defendants are guilty of raising
money to support the mission
of the Palestinian Islamic
Jihad, a terrorist group
blamed for hundreds of deaths
in Israel, the West Bank and
Gaza Strip.
Jurors began deliberating
Tuesday morning after
hearing from niore than
70 witnesses in five months of
trial. They'll resume Monday
morning.
Prosecutors allege Al-Arian
and co-defendants Sameeh
Hammoudeh, Ghassan Zayed
Ballut and Hatem Naji Fariz
used an academic think tank, a
Palestinian charity and school
founded by Al-Arian in Tampa
as fundraisiig fronts for the

Governor's office takes action


By LINDSAY DOWNEY
Idowney@lakecityreporter.com

When hurricanes hit
Florida, lawyers at the
governor's office take action.
Raquel A. Rodriguez, gener-
al counsel to Gov. Jeb Bush,
spoke Thursday to the Lake
City chapters- of the Rotary
Club and Altrusa
International, Inc. at their
annual joint meeting in the
Desoto Room at the Quality
Inn.
'The Number 1 enemy to a
good disaster response is bad
preparation," Rodriguez said.
"We deal with all of the legal
requirements that people
don't think of when there's a
storm."
Approximately 100 people
attended the luncheon and
listened as Rodriguez, who
was introduced by the nick-
name "Rocky," spoke about
the role the governor's legal
team plays when hurricanes
impact Florida.
Lawyers issue an executive
emergency order, which puts
the National Guard on alert
and gives various state
agencies the power to take
action, Rodriguez said. .
"It pretty much erases all
the red tape," she said. "It
says, 'You do what you need
to do to prepare."'
Rodriguez, a Miami native,
survived Hurricane Andrew
in 1992 and tracked
Hurricane Wilma's path last
month as she helped the state
make preparations for the

annual joint luncheon Thursday.


storm.
"It was really hard during
Wilma to be standing there
looking at the hurricane
going right through Miami,"
Rodriguez said.
The governor's legal team
always has practiced its hurri-
cane response at least once a
year, but when four hurri-
canes hit the state last year, it
was put to the test.
"We had a lot of novel
issues we had to figure out on
the fly because we didn't have
any precedent to go by,"
Rodriguez said.


Rodriguez and other
lawyers review information
and legislation, advise the
governor and answer
questions that may arise.
"I thought it was excel-
lent," said John Hopkins,
president-elect of the Lake
City Rotary Club. "With all
the storms that happened this
year, Florida seemed so
much more prepared than

One dead, thee wounded in shooting at McDonald's

TAMPA - An 18-year-old
student was killed and three
other people wounded
Thursday afternoon in a
shooting in the parking lot of
a McDonald's restaurant
across the street from a high
school, sheriff's officials
said.
The shooting just before

parking lot of the restaurant
left King High School senior
Delshon Walton dead.
Witnesses told reporters
at the scene that someone
fired shots from a white van
outside the restaurant,
culminating a feud between
two rival gangs. The van then
sped off.


Sheriff's spokeswoman
Debbie Carter said she could
not immediately confirm that
account. .
No one was in custody, and
deputies were still looking , *
for suspects, Carter said.
The shooting occurred when
the parking lot was full of
King students who were just
released from school.
Walton and two other

Activists say tobacco industry targets Hispanic youth


By LAURA WIDES-MUNOZ
AP Hispanic Affairs Writer

MIAMI - Anti-smoking
activists are demanding
greater federal monitoring of
what they say is the tobacco
industry's increased efforts to
sell cigarettes to Hispanics,
and particularly Hispanic
youth.
Advocates say Hispanics'
low rate of smoking as com-
pared to others makes them
ripe for an industry seeking to
boost sagging sales. They
also say marketing targeted to
Hispanics, which is often in
Spanish, goes under the radar
of the Federal Trade
Commission.
The Campaign for Tobacco-
Free Kids is urging state
attorney generals to investi-
gate R.J. Reynolds Tobacco's
new "Kool be true" campaign
and other industry promo-
tional practices, which they


say are covertly aimed at
Hispanic youth. As part of the
campaign, R.J. Reynolds
recently placed an eight-page
color ad in "Latina" magazine
featuring sexy young musi-
cians and the line: "It's about
pursuing your ambitions and
staying connected to your
roots."
"Teens who read these
magazines are aspiring to be
like these models," Vince
Willmore, spokesman for the
Washington, D.C.-based
advocacy group, said
Thursday.
This week the group joined
the National Latino Council
on Alcohol and Tobacco
Prevention in support of the
Floridians for Youth Tobacco
Education's new bilingual
campaign to educate Hispanic
youths about smoking.
Health officials have been
working to reduce the num-
ber of child smokers because


MIE LST 63POUDS


the majority of smokers say
they started before age 18.
Smoking, the leading cause of
preventable death in the coun-
try, kills about 440,000
Americans per year.
Willmore said he is particu-
larly concerned because the
Kool campaign comes just
one year after R.J. Reynolds
settled a suit brought by
attorneys general in


California, Illinois and
Maryland, who alleged an ad
campaign entitled "Kool
Mixx," was using hip-hop
music and images to target
youth.
R.J. Reynolds spokesman
Fred McConnell dismissed
the accusations. He said the
company only markets to
adults and only uses models
age 25 and older.

DEP funds


help keep


city from


going dry

t's good to see the City of Lake
City in position to qualify for
$3.3 million in additional finances
earmarked for its drinking-water-
treatment plant now under
construction.
Obtaining the money from the
Department of Environmental
Protection's loan program is paramount
to having enough money to finish the
$12.5 million project.
Each year, projects are placed on the
approval list for the DEP funds, but
commitments into the long-term future
cannot be promised. Once a
commitment is given, bids are let and
project construction begins.
Sometimes there are snags when a
massive project like a water-treatment
plant spans fiscal years, but not in our
case.
Obtaining the money was important
to secure and it's good to see city
leaders doing what they can to make
sure this happened.
Once completed and on-line, the new
facility will treat as much as nine million
gallons of drinking water per day.
Thank goodness the city doesn't leave
us thirsty.

Bush should look to


Truman for answers


George W. Bush's
approval ratings
are at an all-time
low for his
presidency -
37 percent - and his political
opponents, seeing that he is
down, have begun kicking
him especially hard, even'to
the point of doing their best to
make us lose the war in Iraq.
For comfort, the president
might reflect that approval
ratings are sometimes directly
contradicted by later, more
'reflective judgment, Hermiikht
think about Harry'Trutimani,
whose rating toward the
end of his presidency was
23 percent - 1 percent lower
than Richard Nixon's rating
during the Watergate scandal
- and ponder how Truman
today gets high marks as a
decisive, tough-minded leader
with major accomplishments.
One of those
accomplishments was
standing up to communist
expansionism through a policy
of containment. Sometimes,
that policy demanded nothing
more than financial assistance,
but when North Korea
invaded South Korea with
Soviet backing, it required
military action through the
United Nations. There was a
major setback in the war when
China became involved, and
then there was stalemate, and
then there was public
disenchantment. Along with
other issues, the war hurt
Truman's popularity, keeping
him from seeking another
term in office.
Bush's popularity has
likewise been damaged by the
continuing insurgency in Iraq.
That's not the whole story -
the bumbling response to
Katrina's devastation in New
Orleans, discomfort with his
Social Security proposals,
outlandish federal spending
and still other factors have
caused millions of Americans
to worry that his job
performance is subpar. But


OTHER


Project is a bridge over rivers of cash


Congressional Republicans,
already running scared,
decided that the notorious
"bridge to nowhere" was a
bridge too far. It had become a
public and all-too-visible symbol
of their.spendthrift ways and
House GOP members
complained that they were
taking a lot of flak about the
bridge from the folks back,
home.
To recap: Two very powerful
Alaska Republicans, Rep. Don
Young and Sen. Ted Stevens,
added as an earmark to the
huge highway bill $223 million
for a bridge linking Ketchikan,
pop. 8,000, with an island, pop.

the daily killing in Iraq and
the fear of quagmire seem to
constitute the chief
dissatisfaction, and Democrats
have been quicl.: ri pounce
even though their pouncing is
dangerous to the .nation.
In the Senate, the
Democratic quest was for a
definitive timetable for troop
withdrawal from Iraq, which,
of course, could have the
effect of turning the country
over to a terrorist regime that
would then set about the
business of putting WMD in
the hands of colleagues
headed our way. The
Republicans beat that down,
while joining with Democrats
to pass a non-binding
resolution that still called for
N006 to be a period of
"significant transition to full
Iraqi sovereignty," as if that
was not the administration's
fervent hope.
The fact is, of course, that
the administration has had an
.exit strategy from the war's
outset - depose the regime
of Saddam Hussein, restore
peace and a sound economy to
the land, and put responsible
Iraqis in charge of a decent,'
parliamentary-style
government backed up by
credible Iraqi armed forces to
quell terrorism and uprisings.
Unquestionably, the
strategy has proved more
difficult-to implement than the
administration expected,
owing primarily to murderous
Sunni terrorists who are
mostly killing fellow Muslims
with barely a whisper of
protest from Sunni clergy.


50, that would spare the
residents a seven-minute ferry
ride to the airport. The two
lawmakers also earmarked a
similar amount for starting
work on a second bridge to
nowhere- estimated final cost,
$1.5 billion - linking
Anchorage with a remote and
little-used port.
The bridges became an issue
after Hurricane Katrina when
some lawmakers proposed to
redirect that money to
rebuilding a vital bridge on
Louisiana's heavily traveled
Interstate 10. Stevens
threatened to resign, a bluff the
Senate should have called just


to see what would happen. He
prevailed, but the issue of the
bridge to nowhere as an
example of congressional, and
especially Republican, excess
would not go away.
To make it go away,
congressional negotiators
stripped the two earmarked
bridges out of the bill that
would pay for them. But there
was a catch: The state of Alaska
gets to keep the $454 million
set aside for the bridges and it
is free to use the money for any
transportation projects it
pleases - including, if it likes,
the bridges to nowhere.
* Scripps Howard News Service


Yet, there has also been
remarkable success - an
election and the adoption of a
constitution in a part of the
world with next to no
experience in democracy or
rule of law, and slow but
steady progress on such
fronts as establishing schools,
training Iraqi soldiers and
building a new infrastructure.
Senate Democrats have also
pursued the fiction that Bush
manipulated us into war,
although the administration at
long last is beginning to fight.,.
back. First Bulsh and nowvVice
President Cheney are pointing
out that Democrats.
themselves had access to U.S.
intelligence, and that many of
them voiced concerns similar
to those of the administration
about Saddam's possession of
weapons of mass destruction.
For too long, the
administration has allowed
itself to be pummeled on this
count with next to no defense.
For the sake not only of
maintaining some political
strength but of helping to
secure a safe American future,
the administration must
demonstrate that such hateful,
paranoia-fueling lies are just
that, lies.
And then, to make himself
feel better, Bush might reflect
that one Democrat's problems
were akin to his own, but that
this Democrat's policies
helped win the Cold War, just
as Bush is trying to win the
war against terrorism.
He might reflect, too, that
Truman's actions in Korea
kept millions in the south free
from impoverished
enslavement and lessened the
threat from a nevertheless
threatening North Korea. He
might consider that while
much of America came to
have disdain for Truman
during his tenure, history has
been much kinder.

COMMENTARY



One fan's


nightmare


continues

Sam a victim. I come before you today
to tell my story. It started when I was
9 years old and continues on to this
day. You see I'm a sports fan - more
accurately, I'm a Philly fan.
Philly fans have gotten a bum rap through
the years. Yes, we did boo Santa Claus. Yes,
some laughed at Michael Irvin when he was
injured' at Veterans Stadium. Some even
threw batteries at J.D. Drew.
I do not
condone these
senseless acts
- nor do
I take . .-
responsibility - .
for them. But
don't talk to
me about the Joseph DeAngelis
Red SoxWcurse Phone: (386) 754-0424
or the White jdeongelis@lakecityreporter.com
Sox curse.
Those are just baseball myths. Philadelphia
sports teams are cursed across the board.
As a child growing up in the Philly
suburbs, I was oblivious to this. The Flyers
won the Stanley Cup in 1974 and 1975 and
the Phillies went to the NLCS in 1976 and
1977. The Sixers were in the NBA Finals in
1977. Life was good.
When the Phillies won the World Series in
1980, I waited up till after 11 p.m.,,to watch
Tug McGraw throw that winning pitch. I
cried myself to sleep three months later when
the Eagles collapsed against the Raiders in
Super Bovl XV. The Sixers also lost to the
Lakers that year in the Finals, and the Flyers
lost to the Islanders in the Stanley Cup.
Since then, the Phillies have been to the
World Series twice - choking against Cal
Ripken and the Orioles in 1983 and giving us
"Wild Thing" Mitch Williams to give up Joe
Carter's series-winning homer against
Toronto in 1993.
The Flyers have been to the Stanley Cup
three times since 1980 - losing all three.
Through the years, they've been one of the
top teams in the NHL - only to falter in the
playoffs.
The Sixers won the NBA Finals in 1983 for
Dr. J and Moses Malone, but since then
have been rather dismal. A Finals
appearance against Shaq and the Lakers
looked promising in 2001, when Philly won
Game One. But L.A. swept the next four to
take the title. Even Allen Iverson isn't
'The Answer" to the Sixers' woes.
The latest Philly club to victimize me has
been the Eagles. Fitting, isn't it, because
Eagles fans have been given the nickname
'The Boo Birds," for their hot and cold
support of the team.
The Eagles spent much of the 1980s and
1990s with an identity crisis. Talented, hard
working, but barely able to get out of the
NFC East. When they did make the playoffs,
they ran into a hotter team or - in the case
of the Fog Bowl in Chicago - worse
weather.
Andy Reid came onboard in 1999. Since
then, the Eagles have been the hottest team
in the NFL south and west of Boston. Four
NFC championship appearances in the 21st
century - and three embarrassing losses.
Philadelphia went 25 years without a
Super Bowl appearance until last year. For
the first 25 minutes of the game against the
Patriots, the Eagles were in control. Then a
case of blown coverage in the end zone
reignited New England.
The Eagles still had a chance, though,
down by 10 in the fourth. Donovan McNabb
led the team to the end zone, but took too
much time to do it, moving the team at
turtle-like speed. In the end, the Eagles ran
out of time.
Time appears to have run out again in
Philadelphia. After shedding the extra
baggage of Terrell Owens - which I have to
credit the organization for doing - the
Eagles have lost three straight games to
division opponents. And now McNabb, the
heart and soul of the team, is out
indefinitely.
What will I do now? I can't afford the
expense of counseling and heart treatments.
And my son has already picked up the nasty
habit of throwing things at the TV screen.
Should I change my identity? Change my
allegiance? Root for someone like the
Yankees or Cowboys? No way.
You can take the boy out of Philadelphia,
but you can't take Philadelphia out of the boy.
So I'll take my lumps like a man and dish
out my verbal insults and colorful epitaphs
like a true Philly fan.

Insurance adjustors say Iowa tornado


damage rivals that of Hurricane Andrew


By DAVID PITT
Associated Press

DES MOINES, Iowa -
Insurance adjustors sur-
veyed tornado damage in
central Iowa, with one saying
the devastation equals that of
Hurricane Andrew that hit
Florida in 1992.
"I worked Hurricane
Andrew and it looks a little
bit like Homestead did," said
Myron Amdahl, a team
leader for State Farm
Insurance Cos. "Just very
severe devastation, but it
was very limited. We don't
have a lot of claims, but the
ones we have are quite
severe."
Two homes surveyed
early Monday were declared
total losses. The homeown-
ers were immediately issued
checks.
"We just spent $300,000
here in the last hour, so we're
seeing pretty significant dam-
age," Amdahl said. 'They're
certainly comforted when
they get a check in their
hands, that seems to help.


They have an awful lot of
things on their plate and its
just one less thing to worry
about."
State Farm had 30 homes
insured in Stratford and
Woodward and eight were
categorized as severely
damaged.
One home had been lifted
off its foundation and moved
about five feet, Amdahl said.
Homeowners seem to be
doing well, but still were

the unusual November torna-

Iowa on Saturday evening,

Media baron Conrad Black charged


with looting millions from media empire

CHICAGO - Conrad
Black, who once controlled
the Hollinger International
media empire, was charged
with three other executives
Thursday with looting mil-
lions of dollars from the com-
pany, cheating on taxes and
dipping into corporate coffers
to finance his lavish lifestyle.
"What has gone on here is
the grossest abuse by direc-
tors and insiders," U.S.
Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald
said in unveiling the 11-count
indictment.. .
An - arrest warrant was
issued for the 61-year-old
Black, a former Canadian citi-
zen who is now a member of

Fitzgerald said that if he fails

Black's attorney, Edward
Greenspan, said in a state-
ment that Black is confident
he will be found innocent "if
given a full and fair
opportunity to defend him-
self."
"Conrad Black asserts his
innocence without qualifica-
tion with respect to each and
every one of the charges set
forth in the indictment,"
Greenspan said. "It will be
shown that he has, at all
times, acted within the law."

Citizens Property seeks 15.4 percent rate hike


By BRENDAN FARRINGTON
Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE -
Citizens Property Insurance
Corp. will ask to raise all
Florida homeowners rates by
at least 15.4 percent, but the
company board's chairman
said Thursday that still isn't
high enough to pay for the
risk it faces because of
hurricanes.
The Citizens board also
voted to seek at least a
16.2 percent increase for
homeowners in high-risk
areas. Those increases will
simply bring rates for the
state-created company above
those of private insurers,
which is required by law.
Citizens, which sells property


coverage to people who can't
get it from traditional insur-
ers, will recommend another
increase next month to reflect
the true actuarial risk it faces.
Rates are "obscenely high
in relation to historic rates,
but so are the hurricanes, so
are the risks," said board
Chairman Bruce Douglas.
"When it comes to rates, we
have never filed actuarially
sound rates ... The rates don't
merit the risks."
Citizens is required by law
to have actuarially sound
rates and Citizens is prepar-
ing an assessment at where
rates should be. An analysis
Citizens released last month
recommended an 80 percent
increase for windstorm cover-
age in high-risk coastal areas.


The increases have to be
approved by the state Office
of Insurance Regulation.
Douglas said Citizens' goal
is to cut its number of policies
in half. If rates aren't high
enough, private insurers will
stay 'out of Florida because
they won't be able to make a
profit.
"Our rates, if they were so
ridiculous, you would see the
voluntary market coming in
and selling insurance in
Florida," he said.
Only one board member,
Julio Rebull Jr., voted against
the recommended increases,
arguing that it makes little
sense to sell insurance to peo-
ple who can't get it elsewhere
at a price they can't afford.
"The more I think about


this, the more trouble I have
doing this," he said.
In addition, Citizens
Executive Director Bob
Ricker.said it is too early to
say how high an assessment
will be needed on all home-
owners policies to restore
reserves being depleted by
Hurricane Wilma claims.
About 105,000 claims have
been filed with Citizens since
the Oct. 24 storm and that
number is expected to rise to
as high as 130,000, Ricker
said. There are a wide range
of estimates on how much the
storm will cost Citizens and
the assessment will depend
on the final figure. An average
estimate is about $1.1 billion.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2005


BOARD: New officers set
Continued From Page 1A.


its annual reorganization
meeting.
"The reason they choose
that date was because it's
based on the elections," said
Dale Williams, county manag-
er. "It's the first meeting after
any newly elected
commissioner should take
office."
The Board of
Commissioners has tradition-
ally voted the vice chairman
from the previous year as the
new chairman and followed
suit Thursday in a meeting
attended by less than
30 people.
Ron Williams, the District 1
County Commissioner, has
been a county commissioner
for more than 26 years and is
serving in his fourth term as
commission chairman.
S"I'm looking forward to har-
mony on the Board," Williams
said, speaking of his latest
term as board chair.
Williams said one of the top
issues and concerns he
expects to hear during the
next year will be better fire
protection in the rural areas of
the county.
"That's our number one pri-
ority," he said. 'The second
priority will be to finish the last
phase of the connector road."
Elizabeth Porter, District 5
County Commissioner, was
elected last year and will serve
in her first term as the


commission's vice chairman.
"I hope I am prepared; I
think I am prepared and I
appreciate the confidence that
my fellow commissioners had
in me to vote me in as vice-
chair and I will do my duty as
is my job," she said.
Porter said she also thinks
that fire protection will be an
issue high on the county's list
of priorities during the next
year, as well as transportation
initiatives - especially along
the east-west corridor of the
county, as well as issues
regarding Senate Bill 360 -
the legislation approved dur-
ing the last session which
requires counties to include
school boards and the school
needs in their concurrency
assessments.
"I just appreciate my fellow
commissioners having confi-
dence in me to fill-in as needed
and I too, like Commissioner
Williams, look forward to a
year of harmony and coopera-
tion on the Board," she said.
Dale Williams said he also
expects the commission to
continue to try to expand a
utility in the unincorporated
areas of the county, both at the
Ellisville area as well as the
unincorporated areas, right
outside the city limits, as well
as park enhancements, which
received considerable funding
in this year's county fiscal
budget.

Sarasota County Sheriff William

Carlie Brucia, after the verdict
was read on Thursday.

TRIAL
Continued From Page 1A

Carlie's mother, Susan
Schorpen, wept softly with her
head bowed when the verdict
was read, and the girl's father,
Joe Brucia, nodded when each
of the three convictions was
announced. As he left court,
he said only that he was happy
with the verdict.
"I can never hold her again.
Where's the . closure?"
Schorpen said outside the
courthouse. "I've lost one of
the most precious things to
me in my life because of an
animal, a disgusting,
perverted animal."
When asked if she was satis-
fied with the verdict, she
responded: "When he's dead.
When he meets his maker."

by which our institutions will
be known and remembered,
and to awaken hope in the
hearts of our citizens, stu-
dents and those with
inquiring minds."
Dr. Charles Hall, president
of Lake City Community
College, said, "Jointly, we will
be sponsoring a lecture series
throughout the year with
speakers discussing politics,
religion, state and national
issues. We pledge to bring
speakers who are renowned,
credible and knowledgeable
on the topic of the evening.
"And, questions from the
audience are not only


accepted, they are
encouraged."
Judge Douglas said, "Our
goal is to be numbered
among those in this world
who contribute rather than
merely consume." He said he
believes the Community
Public Affairs Series can be a
catalyst for understanding
and change that will "literally
make a difference."
Lake City Community
College will host the CPAS
events in its Alfonso Levy
Performing Arts Center audi-
torium. Each event will pro-
vide the opportunity for ques-
tion and answer discussion


with the presenters and may
include informal meetings.
"We will also try whenever
possible to involve LCCC and
younger students in these
symposiums," said Lake City
Reporter Publisher Michael
Leonard,
"It is important to make an
impact at all age groups and
levels of our community with
the speakers and topics we
will be presenting."
Hall, Douglas and Leonard
said more information regard-
ing the Feb. 11, 2006 sympo-
sium and the Community
Public Affairs Series will be
available in late December.


BASKETS: Needy to get turkeys, food


Continued From Page 1A
scheduled for today.
'"The food will be going to
families that have been select-
ed by each school," Spradley
said. '"The food is going to fam-
ilies who are less fortunate or
those who may not have the
capacity to have . a
Thanksgiving meal. Each
school was given the opportu-
nity to select 15 families from
their student population and
those are the families who will
be receiving the Thanksgiving
baskets."
The students started collect-
ing the canned-goods in mid-
October and food collection
drives concluded Nov. 7 when
Catholic. Charities began


collecting the food.
"Most of the canned-goods
were collected Nov. 7-8,"
Spradley said.
The Catholic Charities staff
and community volunteers pre-
pared the baskets during the
past few days.
Edwards said 51 volunteers
helped prepare and distribute
the turkey baskets Thursday
and she was expecting many of
the volunteers'to return today.
"We were here at 6:30 this
morning and we'll probably be
here until dark tonight,"
Edwards said.
Edwards said ifs important
to have community partners
working together because their
f


efforts benefit many people.
"This is our fifth year work-
ing with the school system and
we're feeding families that
would not possibly have a spe-
cial opportunity during this
ThAnksgiving period," she
said. "It's very important that
the community sees that not
everyone is as gifted and does-
n't have the means to have
Thanksgiving and that they are
very much in need. That's
what Catholic Charities does
across the nation; not just
Thanksgiving - we do this
everyday. Without community
partners, I wouldn't be able to
do such a big project because
of funding being limited."


deep.
With the center damaged,
the seniors that used the cen-
ter were moved to Golden Age
Recreation Center for about
five months while the damage
was repaired.
"We had the main dining
area and activity areas painted,
both the walls and the ceil-
ings," Freeman said. "We had
the floors completely redone,
as well as a few cosmetic
changes." -
Freeman said it also gave
the staff time to get rid of old
"junk," as well as old broken

equipment.
The center provides a place
for seniors to go and enjoy the
. company of others.
Freeman said the center
normally opens around
7:30 a.m. and runs until about
1 p.m. During this time, sen-
iors are able to eat breakfast,
socialize, use exercise equip-,
ment, play a game of pool, or
watch television.
'The center provides recre-
ation and socialization and the
chance to eat with us, not that
these folks would be starving
without us," Freeman said. "It


gives them a place to congre-
gate. When dealing with the
weather, it, also gives them a
place to stay warm, or stay
cool, and it may help them
save money on electricity."
Freeman said the ability to
socialize may help seniors
fight depression, adding that
some of them who eat at the
center may not eat at home.
"It can be depressing to
cook for yourself and some-
times older people, won't,
rather eating potato chips and
drinking a Coke, which isn't as
good for them," Freeman said.

'Fletch'


inspire's

T here comes a point
in everyone's life
when the lights get
turned on and the
future looks bright.
Everyone in the world has
had a day like this, when they
knew exactly what they wanted
to do with their lives.
For me, that day came when
I saw the movie "Fletch" for
the first time.
For those unfortunate .souls
who haven't a clue as to what
I'm talking about, don't worry,
by the end, it'll all be clear.
Irwin M. Fletcher (played by
the hilarious Chevy Chase)
was a newspaper reporter, who
wrote a column under the
name Jane Doe. And, no, it
wasn't in the food section.
Fletch was an investigative
reporter for a Los Angeles
newspaper who would change
his identity to get the lowdown
on some pretty major stories.
In the first movie, Fletch gets
involved with a man named
Alan Stanwyck (Tim
Matheson) that leads him to a
scoop about the drug
trafficking on an LA beach.
And I'm not talking about
No-Dose, or R,_,bitus-i.e-,, it's the
hard stuff, and a lot of it.
In another, he uncovers a
plot to turn a small town in the
South into a steaming pool of
toxic waste.
All the while, telling people
he was someone else. He's
been Peter Lemonjello, Dr.
Rosenrosen, Arnold Baber, Ted
Nugent, .Caude, or Claude
Henry Smoot, Billy Jean King
and my favorite, John
Cochtoston.
And that was enough for me.
I stopped the movie, went
downstairs and told my parents
that when I grew up, I wanted
to be just like Fletch.
I could see the joy gleam in
their eyes ... Or maybe it was
tears, because I wasn't old
enough to realize Fletch was
not a real person. Or maybe
they were in tears, because
that story just happened last
year. I'm not sure, but Fletch is
what I wanted to be when I was
a "grown up."
Another film that impacted
my choice to come to the
exciting.world of journalism
was the Ron Howard-directed
"The Paper," about a hectic
24-hour day for the New York
Sun's metro editor Henry
Hackett (played by Michael
Keaton).
The story revolves around a
case of misidentification of two
young black teens who happen
upon a murder scene. It's up to
Keaton and a few reporters to
prove these two didn't commit
the heinous, apparently
racially-motivated killings.
The adrenaline rush I had
after I finished the movie was
one I still get every night when
we on the night crew of the
Reporter beat our deadline. It
carries with me into the wee
hours of the morning -
sometimes until 5 a.m. -
before I finally fall asleep.
There are more movies out
there that are required viewing
to get into this social club,
where you can talk to
thousands, and some times
millions of people a week, but
because of space limitations, I
can only discuss these two.
So, anyone thinking about a
career in the media? Pick up
these two movies and see if
you've got what it takes.

Phoenix brings



raw intensity to



'Walk the Line'


By CHRISTY LEMIRE
AP Movie Critic


The title is "Walk the Line"
because the film is about
Johnny Cash, whom Joaquin
Phoenix plays with a raw
intensity and a blaze in his
eyes that's part bad boy, part
scared. child, but 100 percent
emotional commitment.
Then along comes Reese
Witherspoon as Cash's life-
long love, June Carter, and she
pretty much steals the movie
right out from underneath
him.
This is in no way intended
to disparage Phoenix's per-
formance. What hd has done
in capturing the energy and
essence, of a towering
American cultural figure, with-
out lapsing .info facile imita-
tion, is nothing short of
extraordinary, especially
when you consider that's him

singing and playing the guitar
in Cash's deep, driving style.
Phoenix inhabits the role
fully, infusing it with the depth
and richness we've seen from
him time and time again, from
'To Die For" and "Quills" to
his Oscar-nominated work in
"Gladiator" and even in less
acclaimed films like 'The
Village." Clearly this is a man
who doesn't take his job
lightly.
Witherspoon, though, just


takes over the entire screen,
and when she's gone, you
want her to come back (sort of
the way Johnny himself felt
about June as they pined for
each other while married to
other people).
Tracy Flick in "Election"
and Elle Woods in the "Legally
Blonde" movies may have
seemed like perfect fits for her
combination of intelligence
and comic timing. But June
Carter is the part-, she was
born to play, allowing her to
showcase her radiance and
charm and also her maturity.
This is the first truly grown-
up, womanly role in
Witherspoon's long and varied
career, and she gets to be not
just an engaging on-stage per-
former (she also sings and
plays the harpsichord, and she
completely sells it) but also a!
wife, mother, caretaker and'
no-nonsense family backbone.

PG-13 'Potter' lags in fourth installment


By CHRISTY LEMIRE
AP Movie Critic

If the third film in the Harry
Potter series, last year's
"Prisoner of Azkaban,"
seemed frightening with its
Isul-suckirng D-emnti.,-rs and
it- G,-rmn.i expressionist aes-
thetic, then the fourth install-
ment, "Harry Potter and the
Goblet of Fire," will have kids
quaking in their seats - and
perhaps wishing they had an
invisibility cloak to hide
beneath.
This "Potter" earns its PG-
13 rating - a first for the pre-
viously PG series about the
boy wizard - as Harry grows
into adolescence and learns
more about his powers and
his past. Of course, young
fans have 'already devoured
the J.K. Rowling books that
provide the basis for the films,
so they know what's' coming.
(The author is up to No. 6 out
of seven planned.) But read-
ing it. on the page and seeing it
on the screen can be two
entirely different experiences,
and several scenes will be dis-
turbing to viewers regardless
of age.

Columbia routs Seminole High in Classic

Fall ball

pays off

B baseball in these
parts extends
past even the
World Series.
Columbia High
players Corey Burk and
Hunter Allen, and Jeremy
Harrell from Fort White,
recently completed a sea-
son of fall ball on the North
Central Florida Scouts.
The team is sponsored
by the Pittsburgh Pirates
organization and
participants are chosen by
scout Des Hamilton.
"It gives the kids an
opportunity to be in front
of professional people,"
Hamilton said. "We don't
keep statistics and don't
play regulation games. We
put them in situations so
those guys can see them
and evaluate their skills."
Burk is a senior for the
Tigers in 2006, while Allen
will be in his junior year.
Harrell is a senior at Fort
White High.
"Burk has played in the
outfield," Hamilton said.::-,
"His approach tohitting
has been much better. The.
speed of the game picks up
here and he has adjusted.
It has been an education
process for Harrell. He is a
catcher, but we have used
him as a closer and he had
really excelled at that.
"Allen has gotten so
much better each week. He
has played almost
everywhere. Being a junior,
he has the luxury of seeing
what the people want and
then working on it."

Lake City Community
College recently polished
off an impressive fall
season.
"It doesn't mean any-
thing, but 15-2 is a heck of a
fall," Lake City head coach
Tom Clark said. "We have a
chance to be pretty good."
Columbia graduate
Stephen Rassel was one of
the bright spots.
"Rassel had an outstand-
ing fall," Clark said. "He
moved into the '3' hole on a
team full of draft picks. He
has received at least three
scholarship offers."
Five Timberwolves have
already signed scholarship
for post-LCCC ball - the
most fall signees ever for
Clark at Lake City.
Four went Division I:
Travis Jones, South
Carolina; Tyler Beranek,
South Alabama; Brian
Schlitter, University of
Charleston; Brandon Hall,
University of Wisconsin-
Milwaukee.
Mike Ryan signed with
Division II powerhouse
Central Missouri State.
Stephen Barnes and
Damon Brewer also have
had D-1 offers.
Six 'Wolves played in the
fall all-star game at Joker
Marchant Stadium at the
Tigertown spring training
complex in Lakeland. Clark
said it was the most players
of any other school in the
Mid-Florida Conference.
Luis Sanchez, Schlitter,
Hall, Jones, Brewer and
Barnes were on the all-star
squad.

Lady Tigers win season
opener against Dixie
County High, 50-31.
From staff reports

The Columbia High basketball team
picked up where it left off last season,
as the Tigers routed Seminole High
59-37 at the Coast Bank of Florida
Preseason Classic on Thursday night.
"I was really pleased with the
effort," Tigers coach Trey Hosford
said. "All 12 guys contributed."
The Tigers ran out to a 23-10 lead in
the first quarter and never looked
back.
"We came out from the opening tip,
we never trailed," Hosford said. "We
were able to pick it up full court
pressure."
Hosford added that point guard
Kenny Williams had "an outstanding
game," making the right passes to the
right teammates throughout the game.


Williams also led CHS with 12 points.
The Tigers dropped back into a half-
court defense in the second quarter
and held Seminole scoreless.
Byron Shemwell scored 11,
Cameron Reynolds scored nine,
Tavaris Reynolds added seven,
Jakeem Hill and Darian
Parker each scored six,
William Lucas scored three,
Gerry Harris and Jamal
Brown each scored two and
Jeremy Rayford scored one r
point.
After winning his head-to-

wrestling goes to
2-0 after 46-30 win.
By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@iakecityreporter.com
The Columbia High
wrestling team improved to
2-0 on the young season with a
closer-than-expected 46-30
.wp again-st Bucldiolz High on
Thursday night. ,
"Buchholz came in strong,
pretty good for a third-year pro-
gram," Tigers coach Al Nelson
said. "I'm proud of them. They
gave us a better fight than I
thought they would."
CHS won on the strength of
six pins on the night, the
quickest coming from Lewis
Sharp at 20 seconds in the
215-pound weight class.
"I just wrestled a lot more
aggressive," Sharp said. "I
was wrestling more defensive
the last match. I tried to be
more aggressive. I was going
to try to take a shot but he just
shot in first, snapped him
down, spun around him and
ran by bar-and-a-half, like
we've been working on."
Ronnie Frost had the next-
fastest pin of the night when
he took down Jordan Willis in
48 seconds of their 145-pound
match.
Jeff Kennedy took Darrin
LaFolle down in 1:25 in the
135s, and Bryan Huggins got
in his first real work of the
season when he pinned
Robert Atkins in 1:26 in the
160-pound weight class.
Huggins had won by forfeit in
Columbia's first match against
Palatka High on Tuesday.

Columbia won 46-30 to improve to 2-0 on the season.


"Bar-and-a-half," Huggins
said of the move he used to
take out Atkins.
Chris Dahlbeck won his
125-pound match against
Michael Montoya with a pin in
2:52.
"I ran my bar-and-a-half,
kind of pulled him to the side


and he reached back, put it in
him, flipped him over, he was
done," Dahlbeck said.
Chad Vercher had to over-
come some adversity to win
his match, as he trailed Tony
Johnson 5-1 in the 171s before
rallying for the pin and the
win at the 2:58 mark.


Gators upset No. 19 Wake


Green scores 23 to
lead Florida into
title game tonight.
By JIM O'CONNELL
Associated Press
NEW YORK - Sophomore
Taurean Green almost dou-
bled his career high with
23 points and Florida beat
No. 19 Wake Forest 77-72 on
Thursday night in the semifi-
nals of the 2K Sports College
Hoop Classic.
The Gators (3-0) advanced
to today's championship game
against the winner of the
semifinal between No. 16
Syracuse and Texas Tech.
Green, whose previous best
was 13 points as a freshman
against Providence, hit a
3-pointer in the 8-1 run that


gave Florida a 72-62 lead with
2:06 to play. His long jumper
was the Gators' first field goal
in a 5:36 span but Wake Forest
had its own shooting slump at
the same time.
Eric Williams scored down
low for Wake
Forest (2-1)
with 1:49 left
to make it 72-
64. It was the
Demon
Deacons'
first field goal in 5:54. What
made it worse for them was
that during the drought from
the field they also missed four
free throws, including the
front end of two 1-and-1s.
Justin Gray hit two 3s in the
final 25 seconds for Wake
Forest, but Florida went
3-for-5 from the free throw
line in that span. The Gators


came up empty in just two of
their final eight possessions.
Green, who had five assists
and three steals, was 4-for-8
from 3-point range and 7-for-8
from the free throw line.
Corey Brewer, who led the
Gators in scoring in their two
wins, had 15 points and Al
Horford added 11.
Williams led Wake Forest
with 20 points, while Gray had
19 and Trent Strickland 18.
The Demon Deacons shot
42.1 percent (24-for-57), well
off the 62.1 percent they shot
in their first two games, and
committed 22 turnovers,
seven by Gray.
The loss ended a three-
game winning streak at
Madison Square Garden for
Wake Forest, including the
semifinals and finals of last
year's Preseason NIT.


"I knew I could do it, I just
had to go out and work hard,"
Vercher said.
Nelson said he was pleased
with the improvement of his
wrestlers, and now they will
prepare for this Saturday's
Wildcat Duels at Ocala Forest
High, which starts at 10 a.m.


Tuesday, but only the top eight teams
and 12 individuals advanced to the
final rounds on Wednesday.
'The top 10 teams were pretty
strong," coach Brian Saunders said.
Gabby Frazier bowled four high
games for CHS, with one each by
Sarah Wethington and Amber
Stormant. Amber DuPree, Mandi
Wethington, Jessica Miguel, Chelsea
Blair and Kayla Brill rounded out the
state contingent and all participated.
Saunders said fronrt-runners
DeLand High and Timber Creek High
were averaging between 1,000-1,100
pins, where Columbia's district
championship average was 872.
The Lady Tigers averaged 689 at
state.
"We are only losing two seniors out
of this group of eight," Saunders said.
"I think we will continue to be compet-
itive at the district level and will be
familiar with Boardwalk Bowl for the
next two years. But, we have to step it
up down there."

TALLAHASSEE - A staff
attorney for the state's utili-
ty regulator was arrested
Thursday on a felony charge
of possessing stolen proper-
ty for his role in the theft of

TIGERS THROUGH HISTORY


A day for defense


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

It is a defensive day for
Columbia High football. The
Tigers have posted eight
shutouts on this playing date.
1977 - CHS 35, Ed
White 29. For the second
straight week, the Tigers ral-
lied from a two-touchdown
deficit at J.E.B. Stuart Field in
Jacksonville. Tommy Young,
who rushed for 210 yards on
20 carries, scored his third
touchdown of the game with
1:23 left to provide the win-
ning points. He also had a
two-point conversion. Kelly
Lowrey and Marshall Wilson
added touchdown runs.
Guerry Espenship had two
interceptions.
1960 - CHS 40, Santa
Fe 21. The Tigers won big
for homecoming over a team
that was 7-2. Larry Adams had
three short touchdown runs
and scored on a 92-yard kick-
off return. Frank Vining
threw touchdown passes of
54 yards to John Dykes
(screen) and 20 yards to
Daniel Kelly. Charles Capell
kicked four extra points. Jerry
Ogburn recovered a fumble.
1932 - CHS 7, Daytona
Beach 0. Woodrow William-
son rushed for 138 yards and
scored the game's only touch-
down for the host team. Eddie
Joe Long kicked the extra
point. The score was set up by
an interference call on a pass
from Ernest McColskey to
Joe Coombs. Guards Willie
Fralick, who blocked a punt,
and Edwin Sheppard were
"heroes" on the line. Willie
Frank Middleton and Long
were praised on defense.
1966 - CHS 14, Perry
0. Columbia's hangover from
its only loss lasted three
scoreless quarters. Danny
Greene scored on a one-yard


run and Bryan Johnson threw
a 33-yard touchdown pass to
Donnie Williams. After the
game, Columbia signed to
play in the sixth annual
Sunshine Christmas Festival
Bowl in Ocala against
Lakeview High.
1983 - CHS 45,
Fletcher 0. The seventh-
ranked Tigers polished off an
8-2 regular season with a dis-
trict win at home and accept-
ed an offer to play in the
Meninak Bowl. Mark Dace
had touchdown runs of 76
and 21 yards and threw a
44-yard TD pass to Aubrey
Scott. Jeff Buiey had a 41-yard
touchdown run and Bruce
Fike scored on a 42-yard
interception return. Virgil
Scippio had a 55-yard touch-
down run. Jay Veal kicked a
33-yard field goal and six
PATs. Curtis Staples (first
play of the game), Steve
Douglas and Wilbert Austin
also had interceptions.
1921 - CHS 37, Ocala
0. Columbia bounced back
from a humiliating 72-0 loss to
win on the road. .
1955 - CHS 33, Paxon
0. The Lake City Reporter
writer was justifiably caught
up in the new energy era in
describing the home win.
Ernest Barnes "exploded like
a jet-propelled rocket" to
touchdown runs of 67, 41, one
and 15 yards. Lynwood
Pueschel added a 13-yard
touchdown run behind "atom-
ic powered blocking" by Alton
Larrimore, Wayne Witt,
Wayne Hollingsworth and
Press Hollingsworth.
1949 - CHS 32, Starke
0. Tommy Ives had touch-
down runs of 30 and 34 yards
for the host Tigers. Elino
Cabalda had a touchdown run
and scored on a blocked punt
by Elwood Tyre. Gene Cox
added a touchdown run.


Eddie Joe Hewett had an
interception.
1938 - CHS 12, Eustis
0. Columbia won its final
Northeast Conference game
of the season at home.
1994 - Washington 42,
CHS 21. Washington started
its state championship run at
Tiger Stadium by breaking
open a tie game with three
fourth-quarter, touchdowns.
For Columbia, Michael Daies
scored one touchdown and
set up another with an 82-yard
kickoff return. James
Williamson scored after the-
return and also threw a
15-yard touchdown pass to
Jamille Bullock. Kevin Hall
had an interception and
Khalid Rentz and Jason
Baisden recovered fumbles.
Columbia won the coin toss
and deferred and Washington
scored on a 69-yard run on
the first play from scrimmage.
Carl Thomas added touch-
down runs of 84 and 20 yards
en route to 177 yards rushing
in the first quarter.
Columbia finished the sea-
son 8-3, in Skip Wolf's final
year as head coach.
1988 - Suwannee 42,
CHS 22. Host Columbia
scored first in the matchup of
8-1 teams, but the Bulldogs
put up 28 unanswered points.
Tony Camiel had a nine-yard
touchdown run and a
two-point conversion. Scott
Bennett threw a 16-yard
touchdown pass to Howard
Williams. Michael Cooper
connected with George Allen
on a 13-yard TD pass with
:04 left in the game.
1927 - Leesburg 41,
CHS 0. The Leesburg
Commercial summed up the
game: The Yellow Jackets
"experienced little difficulty in
piling up an impressive score.
They outran, out-passed and
out-played the locals."

what you can do in the here
and now. A chance to look into
a new direction or project is
apparent. Love is looking very
positive. ****
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): You may find it difficult to
hold in your true feelings.
Before you say something you
may regret, run your thoughts
by someone you trust. It
wouldn't hurt to mix business
with pleasure. ***
CANCER (June 21-July

the air regarding your person-
al life. Do what you can to get
ahead in business and close
any unfinished business

can do to improve your love
life. Someone from your past
may be thinking of you. Don't
waste money on something or
someone who doesn't deserve
it. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
18): Tie up loose ends before
you decide to kick back and
have some fun. You will be due
for a change and, if you are
quick to react, a new direction
in life can be yours. Don't burn
bridges along the way. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): You will be highly unpre-
dictable, but that will be exact-
ly what draws everyone to
your side. Don't go overboard
today or you may have to talk
your way out of a situation that
you could have avoided.

DEAR ABBY


Zookeeper cringes at parents

passing misinformation to kids


DEAR ABBY: I work at a
large zoo, in the children's zoo
department. I cannot count the.
number of times I have heard
parents, out of ignorance or
impatience, lie to their child
about the animals they are
observing.
In an enclosure with several
species of animal, for example,
they will tell their child that
pygmy species are actually
babies of large animals. I have
also seen them give incorrect
information about animal
behavior, diet and habitat.
I want to ask these parents
for something: Respect your
child enough to admit that you
sometimes don't know the
answer to their question. If you
don't know the answer, ask a
keeper. We are usually on hand
and never mind talking about
the animals we love and inter-
act with daily. We enjoy show-
ing people how amazing and
fulfilling these animals can be,
and it pains us to hear parents
provide misinformation to chil-
dren. - A KEEPER IN THE
EAST
DEAR KEEPER: You have
rattled the right cage. My assis-
tant, Sherry, who is a docent at
the Los Angeles Zoo, informs
me that your complaint is all
too common among staff at
zoos.
It does a child a grave dis-
service to give him or her mis-
information. Children are little
vessels. If you fill their heads


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com '

with nonsense, they'll pour it
forth at a later date embar-
rassing themselves in front of
friends or in the classroom,
where they'll feel like idiots
when it's pointed out that they
are wrong.
It seems that one of the most
difficult phrases in the English
language for people to utter is,
"I don't know." Perhaps that's
because they are afraid it will
make them appear stupid, so
they try to fill the vacuum by
saying something a mistake. A
more constructive approach is
to say, "I don't know, but I'll
help you get the answer," espe-
cially when talking to a child.
Nobody knows everything,
and learning is most fun when
it's a shared endeavor.
Zoos were created for the
purpose of education, conver-
sation, recreation and
.research. When visiting a zoo,
if you have a question, you
should ask a zookeeper or a
docent, if one is provided.
DEAR ABBY: I am a 30-
year-old woman, married to a
man in his mid-50s. "Andre"


and I have an 8-year-old daugh-
ter together, and he has three
grown sons I helped him raise
over the last 10 years.
My problem is I feel deep
inside that I'm missing out on
what is supposed to be my
"real" life. I know I was meant
to have more children, but
Andre had a vasectomy and
doesn't want any more. I would
like to return to college and get
my degree, but Andre doesn't
support that, either. I'd like to
work with children or in a help-
ing profession; Andre refuses
to listen.
I have tried to ignore my
feelings. I have been to coun-
selors, and on and off anti-
depressants for years. I don't
think I love my husband any-
more, and I feel in my heart
that this marriage isn't healthy
for me or our child. But I can't
seem to make myself leave
because of our daughter.
Bottom line: At what point is
it OK to make a decision you
know will hurt someone else
just for yourself? - UNHAP-
PY IN NEBRASKA
DEAR UNHAPPY:
Because counseling and med-
ication haven't helped, the time
is now, while your husband can
still find a woman whose values
are more similar to his own
than yours are.
