update, officials say

The City of Lake City is shedding some
much needed light on utility bills by making
them easier to read.
The first batch of redesigned bills were
mailed Tuesday to customers who are on a
cycle of usage from the end of October to
middle of November.
"By the 28th of December, every one will
have received a brand new bill," said Lake
City Assistant Finance Manager Scott
But the way the city bills customers won't
change. '
'This is just the pretty face of the utility
bill. It doesn't affect how:we get to the bill.
It's how we present the bills," said April
Hampton, customer service coordinator.
Calling the old bill "antiquated" and "hard
to read," Reynolds said,. "We're trying to
streamline it. The old bill was a standard-
ized bill print, very basic. It didn't allow you
to get a lot of information on the bill, so we
went with a more modern look."

'The layout of the bill is more detailed.
It's simpler to read and they can see exactly
how we charged what we charged,"

Sheriff to 'buckle' down

on driving infractions

Deputies will hand
out tickets to those
violating the law.

This holiday season, the
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office will team up with law
enforcement agencies across
the state to crack down on seat
belt use and drunk drivers.
The first campaign; "Click It
or Ticket," began Monday and
will run until Nov. 30. The cam-
paign focuses on the use of seat
belts and on child restraint

while driving.
"Half of the people killed in
Florida during the
Thanksgiving holiday last year
were not wearing their seat
belts," Columbia. County
Sheriff Bill Gootee said. "It only
takes a few seconds to fasten
your seat belt or secure your
child in a seat. Statistics - and
the crashes we respond to -
show restraints do save lives."'
A second campaign, "You
Drink and Drive, You Lose,"
which focuses on keeping peo-
ple from drinking and driving,
will begin on Dec. 10 and run
through Jan. 1, 2006.
According to the Sheriff's
Office, impaired driving is one

Egyptian released
from custody
MIAMI - An Egyptian
restaurant owner, arrested
when his name turned up on a
terrorist watch list, was
released Tuesday after federal
officials determined he had no
ties to terrorism, his attorney
said. .
Basuyouy Mamdouh Ebaid,
44, was flying home to
Hollywood, where his family
had planned a party, his
attorney, Ralph Kenol, said.
"We're happy that his name
has at least technically been

cleared. Now he has to go
through the process of
rebuilding his name in the
community," Kenol said.
Ebaid was arrested in
February after he allegedly
sold liquor to minors. Police
then ran his name through a
computer database, which
listed him as a possible
terrorist because he was
allegedly overheard praising
al-Qaida leader Osama bin
Laden and suicide bombers.
He had been held at the ,
Krome Detention Center, but
was moved to another
detention center in Arizona
when Krome sustained
damage from Hurricane
Wilma last month, Kenol said.
U.S. Immigration Judge
Kenneth S. Hurewitz ruled in
September that Ebaid would
not be deported because
media reports about his case
could get him tortured if he
was sent back to Egypt.
Hurewitz also said Ebaid's
assertion that he had no ties to
terrorism and didn't know
why his name was on a federal
terror watch list was credible.

'Dirty bomb' suspect Jose Padilla indicted in Miami

Associated Press

Padilla, a U.S. citizen
detained without charges for
more than three years on
suspicion of plotting a "dirty
bomb" attack in this country,
has been indicted on three
counts alleging he conspired
to "murder, maim -and
kidnap"'people overseas.
The indictment naming
Padilla and four others was
unsealed Tuesday after being
returned last week by a fed-
eral grand jury in Miami.
While the charges allege
Padilla was part of a
U.S.-based terrorism

conspiracy, they do not
include the government's
earlier allegations that he
planned to carry out attacks
in America.
"The indictment alleges
that Padilla traveled overseas
to train as a terrorist with the
intention of fighting a violent
jihad," Attorney General
Alberto Gonzales said at a
news conference. Gonzales
declined to comment on why
none of the allegations
involving attacks in America
were included in the

Padilla will be transferred
from military custody to the
Justice Department.
Gonzales said the case would
go to trial in September of
2006. Padilla faces life in

three charges - one count

The indictment avoids a

about how long the

government may hold a U.S.

'They're avoiding what the

tration did not want to face,"
said Scott Silliman, a Duke
University law professor who
specializes in national securi-
ty. 'There's no way that the
Supreme Court would have
ducked this issue."
Padilla's lawyers had asked
justices to review his case
last month, and' the Bush
administration was facing a
deadline next Monday for
filing its legal arguments.

according to a lawsuit filed by
five families.
The Florida Pediatric
Society and the Academy of
Pediatric Dentistry join the
families in the lawsuit filed
Monday in Miami. It names
the heads of the state Agency
for Health Care
Administration, the

Department of Children &
Family Services and the
Department of Health.
The Medicaid program is
violating federal law by oper-
ating a health system for the
poor that sets reimbursement

supposed to ensure that
Medicaid children have the

rest of Florida's children,"
said Dr. Luis St. Petery, a

Tallahassee physician and the
executive vice president of
the Florida Pediatric Society.
, Alan Levine, secretary of,
tie Agency for Health Care
Administration, agreed, that
Florida's Medicaid system
was flawed. Gov. Jeb Bush has
received federal permission
to try to overhaul it during the
Legislature's special session
beginning Dec. 5, he said.
"Under the current system,
there is not one single incen-
tive to get children in the door
for well-child checkups, and
that's what the governor has

proposed to change," Levine
During Bush's tenure, the
percentage of children op ,
Medicaid who receive med-
ical care has jumped from
45 percent in 1999 to 56
percent in 2004, Levine said.
But according to the law-
suit, state health reports
found that in the'budget year
ending in the fall of 2004,
more than 500,000 Medicaid-
enrolled Florida children
were given no preventive
health care services at all.

Nelson claims search for

missing pilot continuing

Associated Press

are at least eight avenues to
explore in the stepped-up
search for information for
missing Gulf War Navy pilot
Scott Speicher, Sen. Bill
Nelson said Tuesday.
Speicher, a former resident
of Jacksonville suburb Orange
Park, has been missing since
January 1991, when his FA-18
Hornet was shot down on the
first night of the Gulf War.
Speicher may have ejected
and may have been captured
by Iraqi forces. His status is
currently listed as "missing in
action/captured" by the Navy.
Nelson learned of the devel-
opments in letters he received
last week from Gen. George
W. Casey, the Army's top
general in Iraq, and a
U.S. Embassy official in
Baghdad, according to a
release from Nelson's office.
Details of what the military
,officials call the "eight unan-
swered questions" stirround-"
ing the Speicher case remain
highly classified, Nelson said.
The search for Speicher
recently led investigators to

excavate a potential grave site
in Baghdad on Sept. 19, but
searchers found nothing link-
ing the site to Speicher's
"... I assure you that we will
continue to develop and pur-
sue every lead regarding Capt.
Speicher," Casey's letter said.
David Satterfield, an
embassy official, wrote that
finding Speicher is a top
Nelson said the letters indi-
cate the military is continuing
to aggressively pursue all
leads in the case and it appears
to be taking the search
"I'm going to make sure the
search continues to receive
attention from the military and
the U.S. government until the
Speicher family has some
answers," Nelson said.
Cindy Laquidara, a spokes-
woman for Speicher's family,
said the family appreciates
Nelson's continued attention
to the case.
The family is frustrated that
defense attorneys for Iraqis,
who are being tried with
Saddam Hussein, are not
being asked about Speicher,
Laquidara said

Think safe

this holiday

travel season

Many will travel to the
homes of loved ones
beginning today through
this holiday weekend.
The roads and highways
will be packed. The stress level of
drivers will be off the charts.
Be careful.
The Florida Highway Patrol already
has given notice that speeding will not
be tolerated during this holiday period.
Not one mile above, the news story said
in Tuesday's Lake City Reporter. There
is an added degree of difficulty that
motorists face at this time of year when
they hit the road and that's the addition-
al drivers who don't pay attention.
We're alarmed by the number of
people who talk on cell phones, read
books, watch DVDs and, in general,
allow their mind to wander while they
are behind the wheel.
If you grabbed the paper and headed
out of town this morning and are
behind the wheel reading it, put down
the newspaper. If you are a passenger
in a vehicle on the move, read it out,
Don't be distracted behind the
wheel. Don't distract the driver.
Pay attention on the highways of our
great nation. Arrive at the homes of
loved ones safely.
Be on time and be safe.

The Can-Do Coalition

Here in Hate City,
partisans plunged
themselves this
month to record
depths of shame-and-blame
name-calling over war and
Things got so bitter in the
nation's capital last week that
you couldn't tell the leaders
from the wing nuts. Indeed,
the 16 blocks of Pennsylvania
Avenue that separate the
Congress from the White
House reverberate with
sounds ranging from road
rage to Rove rage.
But back in the
congressional cloakrooms
and occasionally on television
news, you could hear ,a, wisp- *,
of rational response and even',
problem-solving discourse,
voiced by thoughtful adults
who are alsopoliticians. They
stand out because they seem
more interested in reining
abuses by their party's
leaders and working with,
rather than pummeling, the
other side.
They are the Heroes of
Hate City.
They include Sens. Dick
Lugar, R-Ind.; John Warner,
R-Va.; John McCain, R-Ariz.;
Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; Joe
Biden, D-Del., and freshman
Barak Obama, R-Ill. Also
former office holders such as
ex-Sen. Sam Nunn, D-Ga.;
ex-Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind.,
and ex-Gov. Thomas Kean,
The Heroes of Hate City
are all about working with,
and even learning from, each
other. Perhaps they can even
learn a bit from a wily old
warrior turned politician and
born-again peacemaker -
Ariel Sharon of Israel. We'll
get to him later. But first, the
folks who put the "hate" into
Hate City.
Washington's uncivil,war
began a week ago when a
much-decorated Vietnam War
Marine veteran and longtime
pro-military hawk, Rep. John
Murtha, D-Pa., called in
sorrow for the Withdrawal of
U.S. troops from Iraq, saying
they have become targets of
insurgents and a. catalyst for

Martin Schram

violence. The courage of this
winner of one Bronze Star
and two Purple Hearts was
:promptly attacked by
politicians who avoided ever
serving in combat.
i House Speaker Dennis
Hastert, R-Ill., shamefully
,declared: "Murtha and
Democratic leaders have
adopted a policy of cutand,.
run. Th:.y would prefer that
the United States surrender
to the terrorists who would
harm innocent Americans."
Rep. Jean Schmidt, R-Ohio,
shamefully told the House
that a Marine constituent
asked her to tell Murtha:
"Cowards cut and run,
Marines never do." That
provoked rage so great that
Schmidt returned to ask that
her words be erased from the
official Congressional Record
(which was done because, in
Congress, the record is
merely official, not accurate.)
In South-Korea, President
Bugsh dispatched his press
secretary, Scott McClellen, to
join the name-calling
distorters: "Congressman
Murtha is a respected veteran
and politician who has a
record of supporting a strong
America," said White House,
press secretary Scott
McClellan. "So it is baffling
that he is endorsing the
policy positions of Michael
Moore and the extreme
liberal wing of the
Democratic Party."
In the Senate, Democratic.
leader Harry Reid of Nevada
offered no solutions but
hastened to demand that
Bush halt what he termed an
orchestrated campaign of
"It's a weak, spineless
display of politics at a time of
war," Reid said, unhelpfully.
"...We need a commander in

chief, not a campaigner in
chief. We need leadership
from the White House, not
more whitewashing of the
very serious issues
confronting us in Iraq."
So vitriolic was the
Republican backlash against
Murtha that Vice President
Cheney was trotted out to say
that Murtha was a good man,
that debate about the war was
a good thing. But Cheney
also added: "What is not
legitimate and what ... is
dishonest and reprehensible
is the suggestion by some
U.S. senators that the
-president of the United States
or any member of his
administration purposely
misled the .American people
on prewar intelligence."
Which brings us back to
the Heroes of Hate City and.
one from the Holy City-
Jerusalem's Ariel Sharon.
These American politicians
are not really moderates or
centrists, for they have core
convictions as strong as many
of their party's activists. But
they are pro-governance
consensus builders. Thus
Warner, McCain and Graham,
have quietly successfully
challenged the Bush-Cheney
opposition to a measure that
would simply outlaw torture
of prisoners. (Cheney wants
to at least let the CIA be
unshackled to do it.)
In Israel, Sharon just bolted
from the very conservative
Likud Party he helped found.
He seeks to ally with Labor
Party elder Shimon Peres and
others to forge a new centrist
party that can, in turn, forge
a permanent peace with the
Perhaps now is the time for
common-sense pols in both
parties to form, if not a new
party, at least a new
bipartisan alliance. Let's stay
away from ideological labels.
Let's call it something like:
The Can-Do Coalition.
OK, it's not terribly catchy.
But there is something to be
said for truth-in-labeling.
Especially in Hate City.

Iraq: Knowing

when to fold

your cards

In the poker game Texas Hold 'Em, the
best cards a player can start with are two
aces. The game is structured so that a
player eventually makes his best hand
out of two initial private cards and five
subsequent community cards that everyone
can see. Betting takes place in four rounds,
with increasing levels of information becoming
available as more community cards appear on
the table. .
A good player who begins with two aces will
place whatever
initial bet he
believes is most
likely to
maximize the
amount of
money other
players bet,
since he is
certain he is Paul Campos
in the strongest
position. But as
the hand plays out things become more
complicated. As the community cards appear,
they may do anything from making it clear to a
player that he can't lose, to saddling him what
he now knows is almost certainly a losing
hand. A particularly interesting aspect of the
game is that a hand that looked nearly
unbeatable can suddenly become an almost
certain loser when the final card is dealt.
In this circumstance, a good player almost
always folds. The fact that he (quite correctly)
bet heavily earlier in the hand, and that
therefore a lot of what was his money is now in
the pot, is irrelevant to the present situation.
The chips he invested earlier in the hand are
what economists call "sunk costs:" that money
has been spent, and trying to get it back now is
just throwing good money after bad. (Things
aren't quite this simple - nothing in poker is
simple - because a smart player will
occasionally bluff, by making a heavy bet while
holding a weak hand in an attempt to get other
players to fold. But a player who bluffs a lot
against competent opponents will soon be
It's often noted that politicians hate to admit
mistakes. In particular, presidents seem to find
it almost impossible to do so, perhaps because
admitting error seems to undermine the
legitimacy of the enormous power they wield.
But an even more difficult thing for a president
to do is to argue that a decision which was
correct at the time should now be reversed.
This is likely to get him labeled a "flip-flopper,"
as opposed to someone who changes his mind
as more cards appear on the table.
For example, it's still a plausible argument
that, given the information available at the
time, invading Iraq with the aim of
overthrowing Saddam Hussein and turning it
into a stable democracy was the right thing to
do, for both moral and strategic reasons.
Opponents of the war who deny this are
claiming an omniscience no one has.
On the other hand, supporters of the war
indulge in a dangerous fallacy when they argue
that because invading Iraq was the right
decision at the time, we must now "stay the
course." This is the equivalent of the poker
player who, after playing an apparently strong
hand correctly allalong, refuses to fold when
the final card ruins his hand, on the basis of
the logic that his earlier bets would then have
been in vain.
It may well be that going to war to
overthrow Hussein was the right decision at
the time, but that continuing to shove chips.
into the pot in the hope that Iraq will eventually
- five, 10, 20 years from now? - become a
stable democracy is an example of what poker
players call going "on filt."
A player goes on tilt when he plays a strong
hand correctly, loses anyway, then starts
making bad bets because he lets his emotions
get the better of him. Hawks and doves should
consider the possibility that this describes the
Bush administration's current Iraq policy. But
since that would require doves to admit they
might have been wrong about the decision to
invade Iraq, and hawks to admit they might be
wrong about the decision to stay, I wouldn't bet
on it happening. ',

Auto industry, environmentalists

clash on Bush fuel economy proposal

Associated Press

Automakers said Tuesday they
support the direction of a Bush
administration proposal to
revamp fuel economy rules for
pickup trucks, minivans and
some sport utility vehicles, say-
ing it would improve fuel econ-
omy and provide more equity
in the marketplace.
But environmentalists coun-
tered that the changes would
do little to reduce the nation's
dependence on foreign oil
while giving the auto industry
more autonomy in setting fuel
economy standards.
Industry members offered
their first detailed review of
proposed rules to push the
auto industry to raise stan-
dards for light trucks begin-
ning in 2008. All automakers
would need to comply with the
new Corporate Average Fuel

Economy (CAFE) system by
Under the current system,
auto manufacturers must main-
tain an average of 21 mpg for
light trucks and will have to
meet 22.2 mpg for the
2007 model year. It represents
an average of manufacturers'
entire fleet of light trucks.
The new system would
divide light trucks into six cate-
gories based on size, and
automakers would need to
meet targets based on their
mix of vehicles. Smaller vehi-
cles would have to get better
gas mileage than larger trucks.
Passenger cars, which are
required to maintain an aver-
age of 27.5 miles per gallon,
would not be covered by the
Under the new system, in
2008 smaller vehicles such as
the Chrysler PT Cruiser and
the Toyota RAV 4 would need
to reach targets of 26.8 mpg

while large vehicles such as
the Chevrolet Silverado would
need to reach 20.4 mpg.
Automakers stressed the
first major changes to the sys-
tem since the 1980s would
present significant challenges
in implementing new technolo-
gies and factoring the changes
into their product plans.
U.S. automakers have com-
plained that the current system
puts them at a disadvantage
against foreign competitors
because sales of large SUVs
must be offset by the sale of
smaller models to comply with
fuel economy rules.
Ford Motor Co. spokes-
woman Karen Shaughnessy
called the plan "more equitable
than the current system"
because it groups light trucks
into six categories instead of
Honda Motor Co. said its
main concern focused on the
timing of the changes. "In

general it takes at least
10 years from the point of initial
introduction to roll a technolo-
gy out throughout a
manufacturer's fleet."
Environmentalists said the
plan fell flat at a time when
motorists are paying more at
the pump and energy security
has reached the forefront of
public policy.
"Our country can't afford to
miss this opportunity by set-
ting inadequate standards,"
said Eric Haxthausen, an econ-
omist with Environmental
Defense, which urged an aver-
age of 26 mpg across the entire
light truck fleet by 2011.
Others said it could lead the
industry to add size to certain
vehicles to place them in cate-
gories with lower fuel' economy
targets. They also questioned
the flexibility of the program,
which allows standards to be
set according to each
automaker's mix of vehicles.

WASHINGTON - If you're
flying for the holidays you
have lots to think about: what
to pack - and leave behind -
what to wear and how early to
get to the airport.
Tight security, new technol-
ogy and airlines' financial
woes are making air travel
more complicated than ever
this Thanksgiving, when
many travelers take their one
big trip of the year.
For the infrequent flyer,
there's much to remember
even before leaving home.
There's the Transportation
Security Administration's list
of items that can't go into the
passenger cabin, such as
scissors, small knives and
cigarette lighters.
Don't forget to wear sensi-
ble footwear, like loafers,

All the rules mean more
opportunities for inexperi-
enced passengers to gum up
the works during the busiest
travel time of the year. The Air
Transport Association, which
represents major airlines, pre-
dicts 21.7 million people will
fly on U.S. airlines over the
Thanksgiving travel season
between Nov. 19 and Nov. 29,
slightly more than the record
number that took to the air a
year ago. The peak travel time
starts Tuesday night.
Ron Luczak flies a good
deal as marketing director for
The Travel Team, a Buffalo,
N.Y.-based travel manage-
ment company. On Veterans
Day, he spent an hour and 20
minutes in the security line at
Buffalo Niagara International
Airport. He was, he said,
behind infrequent travelers
who didn't know that they had
to take 'off their shoes, belts
and jackets - and forgot to
shed other metal - before

walking through the metal
"There was mutiny," Luczak
said. "People were going to
the front of the line saying,
'I'm going to miss my flight,'
but so was everyone else."
Part of the problem, he
said, was that the airlines did-
n't have enough staff to call
the names of people who were
about to miss their flights and
give them priority.
That may be because cash-
strapped airlines have been
trimming employees to cut
costs. From December 2000
to December 2004, the num-
ber of airline employees fell
19 percent, from 525,137 to
424,312, according to the
Bureau of Transportation
Travelers Aid International,
a nonprofit that assists people
in transit, expects to serve a
record number of passengers
this holiday season. The
agency answers questions,
gives directions and escorts
people, such as children or
the elderly, who need help
meeting a connecting flight.

Man pleads guilty
to HIV exposure
ATLANTA - A former
Emory University medical
student pleaded guilty
Tuesday to two more counts
of knowingly having
unprotected sex without
warning the victims he was
HIV positive.
Garry Wayne Carriker was
sentenced two years in
prison and eight more years
on probation. The Fulton
County sentence will be
served concurrently with an
identical sentence issued
earlier this month by a
Fayette County judge for a
separate incident.
Carriker must also serve
500 hours of community
service after his release.
The fourth-year medical
student and 2001 graduate of
the U.S. Air Force Academy
was charged under a
little-used Georgia law that
makes it a felony for people
who know they have HIV to
engage in unprotected sex
without disclosing their

Crematory land will
remain untouched
NOBLE, Ga. - Part of the
property where 334 rotting
corpses were found at a
northwest .Georgia
crematory has been placed
into a trust, ensuring it will
remain undeveloped.
Clara Marsh, who signed
the agreement Monday, said
she was glad to put the
infamous case of the
Tri-State Crematory behind
"I would like the people
here in this Bible Belt to
recognize that we will never
be forgiven until we forgive,
and the Marshes have
absolutely no animosity
toward anyone," she said.
"That's not who we are."
Clara Marsh's son, Ray
Brent Marsh, was operating
the Tri-State Crematory in
February 2002 when 334
bodies meant for cremation
were found dumped in
woods, sheds and sometimes
stacked on top of each other.
An $80 million settlement
was reached in the case that
required about 11/2 acres of
the former crematory
property to remain in a
natural state in perpetuity.

Man hit in
genitals by Taser
A naked man was
accidentally shocked in the
genitals by a Taser after he
was found breaking windows
and asking women to touch
him inappropriately, police
Jeremy J. Miljour, 26, of
Bonita Springs, attempted to
run when approached by Lee
County sheriff's deputies
Saturday. When he ignored
requested to stop, Deputy
Daniel Hollywood shot
Miljour with a Taser.
One of the Taser prongs
accidentally hit Miljour's
genitals and got stuck, said
Cpl. Matt Chitwood.
Officers are taught to aim
for the torso, but it was
difficult for officers to aim
because Miljour was moving,
Chitwood said.
'The Taser is relatively
accurate, but when someone
is moving like that, it doesn't
matter if you have a Taser, or
a pistol. (Officers) can't aim,"
Chitwood said.
Miljour was taken to Lee
Memorial HealthPark
Medical Center, where he

was treated before being
taken to the Lee County jail.
He is charged with indecent
exposure, resisting an officer
and criminal damage.

Project to restore flows

in Everglades gets $60M

Associated Press

MIAMI - A long-delayed
project to restore natural
water flows in a section of the
lower Everglades will get a
$60 million jump-start under a
spending bill signed into law
by President Bush.
The project, first proposed
in 1989 and delayed by
lawsuits and bureaucratic
battles, will allow the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers to
finish buyouts of flood-prone
land in western Miami-Dade
County and build a levee to
protect remaining homes.
The money will also allow
the Corps to begin the final
major piece of the project:
constructing bridges to allow
water to pass under the
Tamiami Trail, which is essen-
tially an asphalt dam that
blocks water from moving
The Corps wants to build
two separate bridges along
the roadway that runs across
the Everglades from Miami to
Naples; environmental groups

favor an 11-mile skyway that
would cost twice as much.
The $60 million approved
for the lower Everglades
project compares with just
$8 million in funding last year.
'This is a huge increase in
funding for this project in one
fiscal year," said Dennis Duke,
chief of restoration programs
in Florida for the Army'Corps
of Engineers. "I think it shows
how strongly the administra-
tion and Congress support
completing this project."
Completion of the lower
Everglades work is critical to
the overall success of the
$8 billion federal-state plan to
restore the entire Everglades.
Col. Robert Carpenter,
commander of the Corps'
Jacksonville district, called the
project a "linchpin" that will
reduce high water in the
Everglades and Lake
"When we can move more
water south, we'll give lifesav-
ing relief to the like and our
estuaries," Carpenter said.

Eight Iraqi leaders visit

Mayport Coast Guard base

Associated Press
MAYPORT - With eight
Iraqi government officials
watching from the bridge of
the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter
Maria Bray, crews thwarted a
staged terrorist attack in the
choppy waters of the St. Johns
The Iraqi officials work in
homeland and border security
in their country and are finish-
ing up a three-week coast-to-
coast U.S. tour as the first rep-
resentatives of their govern-
ment in the State Department's
International Visitor
Leadership Program.
Capt. David Lersch, com-
manding officer of the Coast
Guard Sector Jacksonville, said
it was the first time Iraqis had
toured a Coast Guard facility.
The demonstration featured
speeding boats simulating an
attack in the river, while Coast

Guard boats surrounded them
and kept them away from a tar-
get as a bright orange Coast
Guard helicopter hovered
overhead. The helicopter also
demonstrated its rescue capa-
bilities, dropping a rescue
swimmer into cold water to
rescue a simulated man
"For us to help the Iraqis to
develop better homeland secu-
rity and better border security,
helps us as well," Lersch said,
who said the Iraqis were inter-
ested in the work of the Coast
Guard and were appreciative of
the sacrifices of the United
States to help bring democracy
to their country.
Maj. Gen. Adnan Manhal, a
deputy to the ministry of the
interior of Iraq, spoke to the
media through a State
Department interpreter. The
other seven officials shied
away from reporters, with one
of them even asking

Former middle school teacher Debra Lafave leaves the
Hillsborough County Courthouse on Tuesday morning, after
pleading guilty to two counts of lewd and lascivious battery.

Teacher enters guilty

plea in teen sex case

Associated Press

FAMPA - A female
teacher pleaded guilty
Tuesday to having sex with a
14-year-old student, avoiding
prison as part of a plea
Debra Lafave, 25, whose
sensational case made tabloid
headlines, will serve three
years of house arrest and
seven years' probation. She
pleaded guilty to two counts of
lewd and lascivious battery.
The former Greco Middle
School reading teacher apolo-
gized during the hearing, say,
ing "I accept full responsibility
for my actions."
The boy told investigators
the two had sex in a classroom
at the Greco school, located in
Temple Terrace near Tampa,
in her Riverview town house
and once in a vehicle while his
15-year-old cousin drove them
around Marion County.

The boy told investigators
Lafave told him her marriage
was in trouble and that she
was aroused by the fact that
having sex with him was not
allowed. He said he and
Lafave, a newlywed at the
time, got to know each other
on their way back from a class
trip to SeaWorld Orlando in
May 2004.
If convicted at trial, she
could have faced up to
15 years in prison on each
count. The plea agreement
also was designed to resolve
similar charges pending in
Marion County. ,
Hillsborough Circuit Judge
Wayne Timmerman said
LaFave also will forever lose
her teaching certificate, must
register with the state as a sex-
ual predator, may not have any
contact with children includ-
ing the victim, and will not be
allowed to profit from the sale
of her story or personal

Shifter faces the daunting task
of whipping up Thanksgiving
dinner for 18 in the tiny kitchen
of her FEMA trailer.
Shifter, who lives in Bay St.
Louis, Miss., had to drive
45 minutes to find a Wal-Mart
that survived Hurricane
Katrina. Downsizing the ingre-
dients to fit her compact oven,
she will serve a 13-pound

20-pounder. Because of a lack

Dinner will be served on paper

"We done lost everything we
owned, just about - except for
us," she said, standing next to
the ruins of the larger trailer
home she once called home.
"We're going to stick together
at all of our holidays."
For many people across the
hurricane-stricken Gulf Coast,

In New Orleans, where
death and destruction still
hang over the many empty
streets and ruined neighbor-
hoods, Eldon Robinson's
thoughts are on his five pieces
of storm-damaged property,
not a Thanksgiving Day
"I'll be eating no turkey,"
said Robinson, a 64-year-old
landlord, as he picked up bot-
tled water from a food distribu-
tion point. "I can't afford to buy
no turkey.".
Instead, he will work on his
damaged roofs, kick himself
for dropping insurance on his
rental property before Katrina
struck Aug. 29 and wish his
family could be together. His
wife is going to north
Louisiana, where their two
daughters live.
Johnnie Clark, an 83-year-
old farmer who works 40 acres
outside the city, used to spend
Thanksgiving selling peas,
turnips, sweet potatoes and
other produce at farmers' mar-

Vincent Rhone removes debris from his mother-in-law's home in

The carrot slicers, salad

pea sellers he kept in his New
Orleans home are caked in
slime, rendered unusable.
"We'll have a little celebra-

softly. '"We're not going to let
things like this stop us. It
wouldn't be good for the family
or the house or the city."
Some hope the holiday

their moral compass.

Warden removed in wake of Iowa prison escape

Associated Press

JOHNSTON, Iowa - Gov.
Tom Vilsack said he removed
the warden of a prison where
two inmates escaped last week
by using a homemade
grappling hook.
The Iowa State Penitentiary
warden, Ken Burger, will be
reassigned and soon will
retire, the governor said
Vilsack said seven prison
employees now have been

disciplined about the escape of
Joseph Legendre, 27, and
Martin Moon, 34. He blamed
the escape on a significant
breach of security and said
there had been no head count
in the prison section where the
two men worked.
"Essentially, what happened
was a count was not made in
the prison industries section of
the prison that would have
identified immediately that
individuals were missing,"
Vilsack said during a taping of
Iowa Public Television's "Iowa

'i is pleased to annouce the opening of his
ti practice specializing in:

. L oda Fia
8 :0 A -5:0 P

Press" program, to air next
weekend. 'This was not about
staffing, this was about people
doing their job."
The inmates used a rope
fashioned from upholstery
webbing and homemade grap-
pling hook to scale a 30-foot
wall at the prison in, Fort
Madison. Both men were
recaptured late last week -
one in Illinois and the other in
Moon was serving a life sen-
tence for murder in the 1990

shooting death of his room-
mate during a drug deal.
Legendre was convicted in
Nevada in the kidnapping and
attempted murder of a Las
Vegas cabbie.
Burger became warden of
the prison in January 2004 and
was honored by the governor
with a "Leader of .the Year"

SAFETY: Buckle up

will affect the way you operate

More than 68,000 people
were arrested for impaired driv-
ing in Florida last year, but only
one arrest is made for every
772 occurrences of a DUI,
according to research done by
the Columbia County Sheriff's
During the course of both
campaigns, sheriff's deputies

Refusal to submit to a chemi-

JAIL: Dec. 1 a key date

proposed jail.
"We need to look at two or
three options on how the jail
will,work on this site," said
Bill Rutherford of Clements
Rutherford and Associates.
One of the main causes for
concern is the wetlands near
the Op Center.
"When we originally did
the surveying where the Op
Center is now, the water was
nearly 16 inches deep in the
woods," Rutherford said. 'To
the best of our ability (we will
try) to place the jail as far
away from the wetlands as we
Rutherford suggested a
survey team check out the
land, determining where the
wetlands start and stop.
'This will tell us a lot about
where the building will be
placed," Rutherford said.
The material used for the
outside of the building was
also discussed, with metal
shells edging concrete as the
suggested exterior.

Rutherford said the metal
shell would be able to
withstand winds with speeds
close to 120 mph.
County Commissioner
Dewey Weaver, replacing
Commission George Skinner
on the council, asked if the
metal shell would be as effi-
cient for heating and air as
concrete. Skinner was
censured earlier this month.
"Concrete may have better
efficiency," Rutherford said.
"Concrete has more mass,
and the more mass means
better heating and cooling.
Concrete may be a better
product, but it would also be
more expensive and would
take much longer to recover
the cost."
Rutherford said the jail
could possibly last 50 years
with proper care.
The plan was approved by
the council and will be pre-
sented to the county at the
next commissioners meeting
Dec. 1.

SUMMERS: 'Forthright, but kind' man died Sunday

the time the two were boys
growing up in Providence.
"He was almost three
years older than me and I
don't think we ever had a
cross word," Brooks said.
"We were very close."
Brooks left North Florida
and made a life for him and
his family in Winston-Salem,
N.C., before retiring and
returning to Columbia
"I couldn't stay retired and
he talked me into buying this
country club three years
ago," Brooks said. "He was
always very supportive of

people who wanted to do
"He was a good guy, a very
generous man. He helped a
lot of people."
Summers served 23 years
as a member of the Columbia
County Industrial
Development Authority and
was on the board at the time
of his death.
"He was an old-style
entrepreneur," said Jim
Poole, executive director of
the Columbia County IDA.
"He always turned things
into a success. He had a
knack for making a purse out

of a sow's ear. He always had
a positive approach to
Poole remembered
Summers constructing the
Best Western hotel in Lake
City around 1977 as one of
the first commercial hotel
ventures in the county.
"He built hotels here, then
Live Oak and Macclenny -
all over," Poole said. "He had
a major impact on how
tourism developed in our
Poole said Summers was
the consummate family man.
)"He was a very good

family person, always had
time for his family," Poole
said. "He was a good man.
He was always looking out
for others. He was my friend
for 25 years. He came from
modest means and made a
success of himself."

BILL: New look will be easier to read, officials say

Continued From Page 1A
Lake City Vice
Mayor/Council Member
Eugene Jefferson said he
agrees with Reynolds.
"I think it will be a little
more enlightening to the cus-
tomers, because it gives them
a little more information on
the bill than the old bill,"
Jefferson said. "So I think it's a
change that our customer
base will appreciate."
Reynolds held up an old city
utility bill and compared it to

the new one. He pointed out
how easy it was to read the
charges and balance owed on
the new one. The place for
messages on the bill doesn't
interfere with the customer
being able to figure out what
they owe, he said.
But there are more
conveniences as well.
"Some of the new things
that you're going to see is the
customer will now have the
option of an automatic bank

draft," Reynolds said.
Although customers could
pay their bill by bank draft
before this, they had to
come into the office to sign
up. Now the form authoriz-
ing a monthly bank draft to
pay the bill will be'printed on
the back of each bill and cus-
tomers can mail it in at any
time, Reynolds said.
'That will save them from
having to come in to pay their
bill," Reynolds said.

The draft won't begin
automatically, Hamnpton said
"It takes about one billing
cycle to start," she said.
Customers i who don't
want their bills deducted
from a bank account can still
mail their bill in, pay in per-
son inside city hall, use the
drive-up window in the park-
ing lot or the drive-up drop
box by the parking lot that is
always available, Hampton

developer, a downtown
property owner and
neighborhood citizen.
As they discussed who
might represent a private
developer, Cone suggested
leaving it open until someone

came to the forefront.
"I think you need to be
careful that you don't give the
impression that you're trying
to do something for the
Blanche Hotel or some other
individual," Cone said.

Ward suggested they con-
sider partnerships, He used
the example of partnering
with a developer to build a
house that qualified for a
Federal Housing
Administration loan, on land

where a dilapidated house
previously stood.
Ward wants to include
private developers, because,
"when the government does
things, the attitude is that they
didn't do enough."

Rail strike causes
travel stress
PARIS - Commuters
crammed onto trains and
long-distance travelers faced
lengthy waits Tuesday as
workers at France's state-run
railway system went on strike,
disrupting national lines and
suburban Paris service.
The open-ended strike at
the SNCF national rail
network kicked off a planned
week of labor walkouts that
could add to problems facing
the center-right government,
already weakened by several
weeks of rioting in poor
The four striking train
drivers' unions object to
restructuring, job cuts, pay
rates and what they call the
creeping privatization of the
national train operator.
President Jacques Chirac
tried to assuage their fears
with a guarantee that the
SNCF would remain a
state-run company "whatever
happens." But similar
previous assurances failed to
prevent the walkout and a
union leader said he expected
the strike to continue.

Nestle recalls
baby milk
GENEVA - Nestle SA, the
world's biggest food company,
said Tuesday it has recalled
hundreds of thousands of
gallons of baby milk from
France, Portugal, Spain and
Italy after traces of ink from
the packaging were found in
the product.
Nestle spokesman
Francois-Xavier Perroud said
the substance posed no
health risk and disputed an
Italian official's claims that it
appeared to be toxic.
Routine tests in Italy in the
fall had revealed presence of
isopropylthioxanthone in its
Late Mio and Nidina 1 and 2
,.milk brands, he said.
Perroud sAid'most milk, up
;to 530i000 gallons, was
recalled in Italy, and "much
smaller" amounts in France,
Spain and Portugal.
"We are sad that the
packaging material that we
bought from a reliable source
did not live up to the
standards that we expect,"
Perroud said.

Prison camp
conditions unveiled
SEOUL, South Korea - A
former North Korean
political prisoner Tuesday
offered grim details of life in
a communist regime prison
camp, saying he saw many
inmates die from overwork
and starvation.
The ex-inmate, who
survived the prison camp at
Yodok, about 70 miles
northwest of Pyongyang,
said a former defector was
beaten to death for having
contacted Christian
representatives in China, he
"Most people died of
malnutrition and its
complications," said the
inmate, who used the
pseudonym Kim Chol-soo to
protect relatives in the North
from retaliation.

Attack on police in Kirkuk kills 17; three

more U.S. soldiers killed as toll hits 2,100

Associated Press

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A sui-
cide car bomber attacked a
police patrol Tuesday in the
northern city of Kirkuk,
killing at least 17 people, and
three U.S. soldiers died in
two separate attacks, pushing
the American death toll in
Iraq to 2,100, officials said.
In Saddam Hussein's
hometown of Tikrit, insur-
gents fired a mortar at a U.S.
ceremony attended by top
officials to hand over a presi-
dential palace to Iraqi author-
ities, sending the
U.S. ambassador and top
commander scrambling for
cover but causing no injuries.
The attackers in Kirkuk
lured the patrol to a busy
commercial street by shoot-
ing a policemen, then struck
with the suicide bomb as
authorities investigated the
shooting, said police Capt.
Farhad Talabani. The bomb-
ing took place on a road leav-
ing Kirkuk, 180 miles north
of Baghdad.
Police Brig. Gen. Sarhad
Qader gave the casualty fig-
ure of 17 dead and 26 wound-
ed, but did not say how many
were civilians.
*Attacks on the security
forces in Kirkuk are
common. Insurgents last
week in Kirkuk opened fire

on a police patrol, killing
three officers, while a road-
side bomb a few miles away
killed two more police
The U.S. military said a
U.S. soldier assigned to the
2nd Marine Division was
killed after a bomb detonated
near his vehicle Monday near
Habaniyah, 50 miles west of
Baghdad. There are several
U.S. Army units assigned to
the Marine division.
Two soldiers from Task
Force Freedom were killed
Saturday by small arms fire
while on patrol in Mosul,
225, miles northwest of
Baghdad, another statement
As of Tuesday, at least
2,100 members of the U.S.
military have died since the
beginning of the Iraq war in
2003, according to an
Associated Press count. At
least 1,638 died as a result of
hostile action, according to
the military's numbers. The
figures include five military
The attack on the ceremo-
ny in Tikrit, 80 miles north of
Baghdad, occurred as a U.S.
colonel was giving a speech.
A mortar whistled as it fell
into a field about
300 yards away from the
palace, but it failed to
explode, according to an AP
reporter at the scene.

A man is treated at a local hospital after being wounded by suicide car bomber in Kirkuk, Iraq, on

U.S. Ambassador Zalmay
Khalilzad and the U.S.
commander in Iraq, Gen.
George Casey, briefly went
inside the plabca-, but
emerged a few minutes later
to continue the ceremony.
"This was' an in,:-ffect-cAl
attempt to stop the progress
that goes on every day in
Iraq," said Lt. Col.' Barry

Johnson, a spokesman for the
U.S. command.
Later, Hamad Hamoud
Shagtti, the Salahutddin
provincial governor, received
a symbolic key to the palace
and a deputy governor raised
the Iraqi flag over the com-
plex. They toured the build-
ing, which Saddam ordered
built for his mother in

1991 and is considered the
largest and most elaborate of
the palaces constructed dur-
ing his rule.
Johnson said the handover
of the palace was an important
step forward in Iraq's develop-
ment, something that insur-
gent attacks have done little to
slow down, despite daily

Lady Tigers fall to Eastside High

New district opponent
was the state runner-up
in 2004-05 season.

Eastside High's girls basketball
team was state runner-up last year and
it doesn't look like the Lady Rams

a couple of quick timeouts, at 6:01 and

back-to-back three pointers to start

the Tigers.
"It was very good," CHS
coach Trevor Tyler said.
"They (Fort White) played
really well. They came out
with a lot of energy."
Columbia outshot the
Indians 14-2 and took 11 cor-
ner kicks to Fort White's one.
Mullen scored the opening
goal off of a deflection on a
corner kick at the 25:30 mark.
The midfielder was one of the
main reasons the Tigers were
able to control possession for
most of the game.
Then Nyssen got going,
dribbling through two Fort
White defenders before
sliding his shot under a
charging Stephen Lynch for
the second goal.
"I'm just trying to do what
,the team needs, go along with
it," Nyssen said.
Fort White had one legiti-
mate chance in the first half,
as an Andrew Sherrer throw-
in was headed by Mike
Williams just over the
Columbia goal.

Columbia High forward Nic Nyssen (left) tries to take the ball away from Alan Watson (right) during a

High on Tuesday.

The second half featured
three goals for a team that
Nyssen said had struggled to
finish opportunities up until
this point.
Charles Cofield started the
onslaught when he was appar-
ently stopped in front of the
Fort White penalty box, made

-a quick move to his left to sep-
arate himself from his defend-
er, and ripped a shot into the
right corner for the third goal.
Five minutes later, Nyssen
crossed the ball from left to
right to Charles Kamback,
who blasted it in for the goal.

ended when he shredded
knee ligaments during an
awkward fall against Georgia
This year, his team tumbled
against the Yellow Jackets -
and that may have hurt
Winston more.
He knows now that he'll
leave Miami without a nation-
al title ring, and will probably
miss playing in a Bowl
Championship Series game
for the second straight sea-
son. But Winston said the
10th-ranked Hurricanes won't
be hurting for motivation on
Saturday, when they close
their regular-season schedule
against Virginia.
"I always go out there to
play for 'The U,' " Winston

said Tuesday. "And that's not
going to change, no matter
what our record is. That's
something that's always spe-
cial to me and I think it is to
everybody else. ... The moti-
vation part for me, and I know
for a lot of other people, won't
be hard to find."

national championship pic-
ture, plus took away their best
chance of winning the Atlantic
Coast Conference's Coastal
Division crown and spot in the
league's overall title game.
Now, to win their division,
the Hurricanes (8-2, 5-2) not
only need to beat the
Cavaliers, but hope that North
Carolina can go into
Blacksburg on Saturday night
and stun Virginia Tech.
Unless both those things hap-
pen, Miami is probably

headed to the Peach Bowl or
Gator Bowl - a difficult fate
for the team to accept.
"Being 8-2, I think, kind of
says it all," quarterback Kyle
Wright said. "That's not where
we planned on being prior to
the season. And I think up
until last game, we had consis-,
tently gotten better. That was
the most frustrating thing. I
think we had taken a step
back. ... We're not where I
want to be or where we want
to be."
But Miami could still have a
10-win season with a victory
over Virginia and then a bowl
opponent. That may be cause
for campus-wide celebrations
at many schools.
Not at Miami.
"We don't work for a 10-2
season," Wright said. "We
don't bust our butt working
countless amounts of sprints,
running up hills, running in
sandpits thinking, 'Hey guys,
let's go 10-2 this year. Let's fall
short of an ACC champi-

Florida gets three
prospects, Boston
also gets Lowell.
Associated Press

BOSTON - One reason
John Henry sold the Marlins
was the lack of government
money for a new ballpark.
Florida's failure to.get a stadi-
um deal is helping Henry,,
now the owner of the Boston
Red Sox, obtain one of base-
ball's best young pitchers.
Only physical stand in the
way of a trade that would
bring 2003 World Series MVP
Josh Beckett and third base-
man Mike Lowell to Boston
for three prospects: shortstop
Hanley Ramirez and right-
handed pitchers Anibal
Sanchez and Jesus Delgado.
The preliminary agree-
ment was confirmed Monday
by a baseball official who did
not want to be identified
because the physical had
not been completed. Beckett,

Florida's ace right-hander,
had a stiff shoulder late last
season and has been plagued
by blisters on his right
middle finger.
Boston had not contacted
Lowell about scheduling a
physical. The Red Sox had no
comment Tuesday on when
physical might take place,
but the Marlins did set a date
- for when they might move
out of Miami.
They said they plan to slash
payroll and received permis-
sion from the commissioner's
office to explore a move after
the 2007 season. A plan to
build a 38,000-seat stadium
next to the Orange Bowl
crumbled last April when the
state Senate refused to go
along with House approval of
$60 million in state funding.
Owner Jeffrey Loria, who
bought the team when Henry
took over the Red Sox in
February 2002, prefers to
stay in South Florida but is
now willing to investigate
relocation, Marlins president
David Samson said.

Joyful family reunion turns

out to be nothing but pain

DEAR ABBY: When I was
4, my two older siblings and I
were taken from our mother
and her live-in boyfriend by
Social Services. All three of
us had been victims of
molestation. We had also
been exposed to illicit drugs.
If that wasn't enough, I later
learned that our grandfather
was also our father. I spent
half my childhood in three
different foster homes until,
finally, at the age of 8, I was
adopted by a caring family.
Eleven years went by, and I
never heard from any of
them. Then one day, my
father received a call from
one of my sisters. The two of
them had been looking for.
me. He told them where I
could be found. At first, I was
overjoyed to hear from them.
Of course, I made contact
with my birth mother after
We have now been commu-
nicating for. 10 years, and it
has been nothing but pure
hell. Every time we speak,
I'm reminded of the horrible
events that occurred when
we were younger. So much
so, that it has affected my sex
life with my husband.
I don't want to subject my
family to this anymore. How
can I tell them I want to cease
all contact with them without
causing a huge uproar?
Please help me. - MISER-

surprised you waited this
long to ask that question.
Your reasons for waiting to
be left alone seem reasonable
to me. Inform your siblings
and your unfit birth mother
that contact with them is so
painful for you that it has

necessary, block unwanted

the hospital following his sur-
gery, a nurse entered. his
room. We all chatted while
she took his pulse, etc., when
without warning she
removed his covers to check
the surgery site and totally
exposed his genitals.
I was shocked and
embarrassed, and have
trouble ridding myself of the
image of my naked husband

with me for having so much

her eyes, was probably as
sexless as a CPR dummy. To
avoid embarrassment in the
future, leave the room when
the nurse enters.

vs. caught in

the wild fish
Q: Is there any difference
between farm-raised fish and
fish caught in the wild?
Specifically, is there a
difference in the taste or in
the nutritional values? -
Betty Armstrong, Elkton,
A: Though all fish differ,
and one could write a book
about wild vs. farmed, it
might be easiest to use
salmon as an example.
Wild salmon is-much
more flavorful than farmed,
and has a silky, flaky texture
and a rich, mouth-filling
taste. The color tends to be
a deeper red, due to its
natural diet of crustaceans,
and the fat is marbled
throughout the fish. On the
downside, wild salmon is
expensive and the price
fluctuates according to
available supply.
Wild salmon has a season,
usually from May to
September, depending on
the variety, and can be hard
to come by (if not frozen)
the rest of the time. Farmed
salmon is milder-tasting and
generally not quite as firm
as wild, and the color is a
paler pink (their food
contains natural dyes in
order to color the flesh).
It would also seem that
farmed salmon is higher in
PCBs and other toxins than
wild is, though not high
enough to trigger FDA
disapproval. It alsoalmost
always costs substantially
less than wild salmon, and is
available year-round.
The general
recommendation is, if you
can get it, to buy wild
salmon in season and
farmed salmon the rest of
the time.
Q: What is cardamom? -
Keith Lovell, Clayton, Ga.
A: Cardamom is an herb
(actually, it's the dried flower
of an herb) related to ginger.
It's got a history dating
back at least a thousand
years, and played a big role
in the spice trade from India
-and Sri Lanka. You'll find it
in Indian cuisine, mixed with
coffee in Middle Eastern �
and used in Scandinavian
It comes in two forms:
green, which tends to be
more delicate and normally
is used in desserts, and
black, which is stronger-
tasting and best used in
savory dishes. It comes in
pod form and ground. Pods
should be removed from

dishes before serving.

'The secret to the
cheesecake is the mixing of
it. I mix the mixture of eggs
and cream cheese a couple of
hours," Ansara said. "It's
thicker than most
cheesecakes and it takes an
hour and a half to bake. I
always use the same recipe."
The cream-cheese filling is
topped with a sour-cream
mixture and then baked.
. He makes eight to
16 cheesecakes at a time,
taking a whole day to do the
mixing and baking. "We sell
whole cheesecakes at
Thanksgiving and
Christmas," he said. "We take
orders 48 hours in advance to
make them fresh."

Cheesecake tips
Chief among Cahill's tips '
for a good cheesecake is to
avoid baking them too long.
"Overbaking is what
causes the top to crack," she
'Take the cheesecake out
when it's still jiggly - not
runny. If it says to bake it
50 to 60 minutes, check it at
50 minutes."
Some recipes say to cool
the cheesecake in the oven
by turning off the heat and
letting it sit in the oven a little
longer so it can cool down
slowly, she said.
Cahill noted that four or
five eggs are standard for a
cheesecake. "For a creamier
cheesecake, add an extra
egg," she advised. "For New
York style, you have more
cream cheese than egg."
A standard cheesecake
recipe will make four to five
mini-cheesecakes, using
mini-springform pans. She
advises baking these 25 to
30 minutes, checking
whether they're done at the
25-minute point. I have even
frozen mini-cheesecakes for

later use. These are a great
size for two people to share.
Savory cheesecake, often
used as an appetizer, was one
of the State Fair contest
categories. Sometimes savory
cheesecakes are made with
assorted cheeses including
ricotta, Cahill said, noting
that ricotta may create a
grainier texture. But if you
have other ingredients in the
recipe such as black olives or
red or green bell pepper, the
graininess may not be
One entry used a feta

Mary Lou Richards with her award-winning Chocolate-Raspberry Cheesecake.


Toledo Blade
Sweet or savory, a
cheesecake can be a
delicious work of
art, whether you are
a home cook or an
accomplished restaurateur.
Mary Lou Richards of
Findlay, Ohio, is a
blue-ribbon winner for her
Cheesecake, a two-layer cake
decorated with chocolate and
fresh raspberries.
She entered the Smile and
Say Cheesecake contest in
August at the Ohio State Fair,
and she won first place in the
category and best of show. It
was the first recipe or
cooking contest that she had
ever entered.
"My mother entered me in
it, unbeknownst to me," said
Richards, who is a realty
specialist for the Ohio
Department of
"I always have a hice
Christmas dinner and I said,
'Mary Lou, I'm going to make
you in charge of dessert,'"
Richards' mother, Phyllis
Richards Strohl, said. The
result was a white chocolate
cheesecake topped with
white chocolate shaped like
the leaves of a poinsettia. The
holiday guests were awed by
the presentation and the
"I made the poinsettia
leaves by painting lemon
leaves with white chocolate,"
said Richards, whose
repertoire of cheesecakes
also includes a turtle
cheesecake and a snowflake
design made with white
chocolate and little silver
candies called dragees.
When she made the
Cheesecake for the State
Fair, Richards put it in a cake
box and drove to Columbus.

The cheesecake traveled
The batter for the
cheesecake is divided in half,
with one half getting
chocolate and the other half
having raspberries in the
Then the fillings are baked
one on top of the other for a
perfect layered effect. "I love
the layers," she said. "I
believe cheesecakes taste
better when made the night
before. They season."
She likes to experiment. "I
love mixing the ingredients
and changing them around,"
Richards said. "Making
cheesecakes makes people
In the course of making
cheesecakes, Richards has
used gingersnaps, shortbread
cookies, vanilla wafers and
other ingredients to make the
crusts. Finely crushed
chocolate wafers are used for
the crust of Chocolate-
Raspberry Cheesecake.
Connie Cahill, coordinator
of the Smile and Say
Cheesecake contest
sponsored by the Ohio Egg
Marketing Program/Ohio
Poultry Association, says that
among the 55 entries in the
contest, there were also
crusts made with nuts,
coconut aad cookies such as
Pecan Sandies.
Kameel Ansara,
chef-owner of Ansara's
Steakhouse in Toledo, Ohio,
uses the traditional
graham-cracker crust on the
signature cheesecakes he
makes weekly.
"It's my dad's recipe," said
Ansara, who won't reveal the
recipe. His father was
restaurateur Michael Ansara;
he died in 1990.
Diners can tell that this is a
homemade cheesecake and
not a commercial product

now to

be ready

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Some years, Christmas
falls a bit flat.
Of course, it's nice to gath-
er your family members and
friends, but there are just
certain years when tho holi-
day seems more obligatory
than celebratory, when gifts
are torn open, Christmas din-
ner consumed, hugs
exchanged and guests sent
home. End of holiday.
But holiday baking, espe-
cially if you start early, can
help create Christmas spirit.
And you won't have to spend
free time - which is proba-
bly pretty limited as it is -
building elaborate -decora-
tions out of red velvet that
you have dyed yourself with
homegrown organic cranber-
ries, or undertaking some
other such overly precious
holiday project.
However, when we say
early, we mean this weekend.
That early start isn't as early
as you think - between
shopping, parties, working,
and juggling the rest of life,
the weeks will fly by and
Christmas will be here
before you know it.
Starting your baking early
will fill your house with the
warm, comforting .scent of
nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla
and fruit for the whole month
of December. The aroma will
linger long after the baking is
done to welcome you home
after a long day of work or
It will leave you free to
concentrate, on wrapping
presents, decorating the
tree, making the rest of your
holiday appetizers and din-
ner dishes and enjoying lots
of other holiday activities.
Starting early also will let
you spread out the baking,
allowing you to relax, share
the cookie-making fun with
your kids or friends, and real-
ly enjoy the process of mak-
ing delicious homemade
Christmas cookies that will
be the delight of your neigh-
borhood and the stars of
your holiday celebrations.
While weekends work
best for making cookies,
some recipes don't have to
be made all at once. Many
doughs can be made a few
days in advance and refriger-
ated before you roll out and
assemble the cookies. That
way, if you get jammed for
time, you can always roll
them out after work.
The best method, though,
is to start the weekend after
Thanksgiving. The cookies
will keep through Christmas
if they are kept refrigerated,
and by mid-December, the
overflow usually can be kept
outside on the porch in tins
or snap-tight plastic contain-
ers. (If your pdrch isn't
screened, be sure to weight
the lids of the tins well. One
Christmas, I lost an entire tin
Sof cinnamon wheels to a
plundering squirrel.)
First, decide what treats
you plan to bake. You might
have a list of family recipes
that you've inherited, and
those are the cookies your
family is counting on. If not,
you have an opportunity to
create your own someday-
heirloom recipes ,by assem-
bling a collection of your
If you're at that stage or
just looking for new cookies
to try, include different kinds

of cookies to please different
tastes: Some people are par-
tial to pecans and walnuts,
while others adore chocolate
or caramel- or jam or
powdered sugar.

What should you do?
You do not need to use an alternative
(e.g., bottled water supply). However,
if you have specific health concerns,
consult your doctor.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had
been, you would have been notified im-
mediately. However, the reason that
'! USEPA regulates DBPs is that studies
Shave shown that some people who drink
large amounts of water, containing DBPs
in excess of the published MCL, over
many years may experience health prob-
lems related to their liver, kidneys, or
central nervous systems, and may have
an increased risk of getting cancer.
What happened, and what is being done
to correct the problem?
Previous disinfection practices and ex-
cessive water age in the distribution sys-
tem resulted in the exceedance in RAAs
for DBPs. System modifications at the
current water treatment plant have im-
proved results. In addition the City has
invested in the provision of a new water
1 treatment plant that will utilize state-of-
i 8 the art treatment technology, ozonation.

By KELLI KENNEDY Associated Press MIAMI Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Tuesday that eight of 10 people will be able to use the govern ments health care website to sign up for insurance by the end of the month. The Obama administrations top health care official was at Florida Technical College in Orlando Tuesday morning mak ing her first of two stops in the state to talk up the Affordable Care Act as fallout of the new law grows. She was visiting Miamis North Shore Medical Center later in the day. During the Orlando stop, counselors from the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services talked with students about insurance they could purchase on www. Sebelius and President Barack Obama have repeatedly apologized for a dis mal launch of the website, which consumers in 36 states were sup posed to use beginning on Oct. 1 to sign up for coverage. Despite the issues with the website that have stymied the rollout, Sebelius implored stu dents in Orlando to Come back and see the site again once it re-opens. Sebelius had been traveling reg ularly as the administration has been in emergency mode, trying to fix its health care website and to beat back criticism that could make Americans leery of using it. The only way to win back the confidence of consumers and the American people is to have the site working, Sebelius said.

Crime creeps up in county By STEVEN RICHMOND The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said Columbia Countys crime index has risen approximately 2.1 percent, according to the semi-annual Uniform Crime Report released Tuesday. The countys crime index was determined by the number of reported murders, forcible rapes, robberies, aggravated assaults, burglaries, larceny and motor vehicle thefts between Jan. 1, 2013 and June 30, 2013. All of the following figures reflect that six month period, as well. There were 1,334 such crimes reported throughout the county, up from 2012s 1,306 and down from 2011s 1,411 for the same period. However, much of that increase came from the larceny category, according to the report. FDLE reported that forcible rapes, robberies and burglaries all decreased from the year before. Murders (two, both in the city), aggravated assaults (193) and motor vehicle thefts (25) were the same in the first half of both 2012 and 2013. Sheriffs Office Weve had 41 additional crimes reported in 2013, Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter said. Certainly we always want the crime index to go down, but if people are reporting more, Im OK with that. It means theyre more comfortable contacting the sheriffs office. The percentage of incidents cleared by the sheriffs office has Rises 2.1 percent in first half of 2013, state figures show. CRIME continued on 3A A and Sebelius Damage control continuing for Obamacare Looking back at Remembered Lights out in Emerald Lakes? Streetlights may be snuffed out in 3 local subdivisions. Lake City residents Judy MacGrath (left) and Carole Brown look over a copy of Patrick D. Smith Sr.s book A Land Remembered, while at a multimedia show held at the Columbia County Public Library Main Branch on Tuesday. RIGHT: Patrick D. Smith Sr., who no longer travels, is seen in a video as he explains how he came to develop some of the plots and characters in his books. Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Patrick D. Smith Jr. signs a book for Lake City resident Bobbie Godwin following a multimedia show that describes author Patrick D. Smith Sr. and his eight fiction and two non-fiction books. The presentation was held at the Columbia County Public Library Main Branch on Tuesday. Ive read this book (A Land Remembered) three times, said Godwin, who describes herself as a true Floridian. I remember all types of stuff (when reading this book). It was just a really interesting book. Patrick D. Smith Jr. speaks at the public library Tuesday night about his father, author Patrick D. Smith Sr., and how he came to write such novels like A Land Remembered, Forever Island, Angel City and Allapattah. Smith retold stories of his fathers life and his inspirations By TONY BRITT The streetlights in Emerald Lakes subdivision could be turned off unless at least 75 percent of the subdivisions parcel owners agree to pay for them. Tuesday night more than 50 people met with county officials at the Lake City Shrine Club building where county officials gave them an option which could keep their street lights on if 75 percent of parcel owners agreed to pay for the ser vice. A number of residents in a Westside neighborhood said they were willing to pay a $38 non ad valorem assessment to keep the street lights on in their neighborhood. Parcel owners were sent letters from the county Nov. 5 indicating that Florida Power and Light was threat ening to turn the street lights off in the neighbor hood. Approximately 215 par cels in Emerald Lakes phas es 1, 2, 3 and 4; Arbor Green at Emerald Lakes phases 1 and 2; and Kelly Lake replat subdivisions will be impacted by the proposal, even though the majority of the people at the meeting seemed to favor keeping the lights on and even hav ing new lights added. There are 29 existing streetlights and five addi tional streetlights proposed for the neighborhood. Earlier in the year, I start ed getting calls that some of the people in your neighbor hood want to add lights, said Columbia County com missioner Bucky Nash, as he explained the purpose of the meeting. We thought it was appropriate to sent out the ballot to see what you all wanted to do. Nash said the county LIGHTS continued on 3A Sebelius in Florida to deflect criticism of botched rollout.

The prosecutor told a judge about the allegation during a first appearance Tuesday on domestic vio-lence-related charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief. The judge set George Zimmerman’s bond at $9,000 and ordered that he not possess guns or ammunition. He was ordered to stay away from the girlfriend’s house and wear a monitoring device. Zimmerman was taken into custody Monday after girlfriend Samantha Scheibe told deputies he pointed a shotgun at her during an argument. In a 911 call, Zimmerman denied point-ing a gun at Scheibe. The 30-year-old former neighborhood watch volunteer was acquitted earlier this year of criminal charges in the fatal shoot-ing of Trayvon Martin.Harris’ husband in apparent suicide SARASOTA — Sarasota police say the husband of former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris was found dead of an appar-ent suicide at the couple’s home. Police spokeswoman Genevieve Judge said Tuesday that Harris’ hus-band, Anders Ebbeson, committed suicide. Officers were called to the home between 7:30 and 8 a.m. Tuesday. During a news conference at the police station, Pastor William Hild of Sarasota First Baptist Church con-firmed that Ebbers had taken his own life. Ebbers was a Swedish businessman. Hild, the family’s pastor, says Ebbers suffered from health issues in recent years.School to keep using history book DELTONA — A central Florida school board has decided to keep a world history textbook that some parents wanted pulled from classes because they say it offers a pro-Islamic worldview. The board made its decision Monday after hearing four hours of public com-ment. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the board didn’t take a formal vote after hearing from some 80 speakers. Only board member Linda Costello pushed for a more thorough review. “I’m still confident with the book and its presenta-tion to our students,” said school board chairwoman Diane Smith. Board mem-bers Candace Lankford, Stan Schmidt and Ida Wright agreed the book should remain in the classrooms. “It’s kind of what I would have expected,” said Walter Hanford, a book opponent who attended the meeting. During the meeting he told the board the “World History” textbook published by Prentice Hall “white-washes” the history of Islam and its Muslim followers.Teen caught after Ocala escape OCALA — A teenager who briefly escaped from the Marion County Judicial Center has been appre-hended. Officials say the 17year-old was unshackled Tuesday morning when he shoved a bailiff and ran from the building. Extra security was called and Ocala police officers spot-ted him running south from the courthouse. The Ocala Star-Banner reports the teen ran behind a pawn shop when he saw the officer. Officers followed and quickly took him into cus-tody. He was checked by paramedics on the scene and taken back to the juve-nile facility. He was originally booked into the center on a violation of probation on a battery charge. He’s now been charged with escape as well. Radio City Santa learning to hydrate NEW YORK F orget the cookies and milk. What Santa really wants for Christmas is water — and lots of it. “Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate,” says Charles Edward Hall, who has donned a sweat-creating fat suit and heavy fur coat to play Mr. Claus in the “Radio City Christmas Spectacular” for 27 years. “I’ll come offstage and literally wring water out of my shirt.” Hall is in his element these days, ramping up for Christmas as he and the Rockettes play up to six shows a day. No wonder his dressing room has crates of Perrier, Gatorade, Poland Spring and cranberry juice. “It is one of the challenges of the role,” says Hall, who hails from Frankfort, Ky. Like a marathon run-ner, he gets in shape to play the famously overweight present-giver. “I actually try to lose weight when I do Santa because it’s just easier to move around.” Does he ever have bad days? “I do, but Santa doesn’t,” Hall answers with a laugh. “I always say, ‘Santa’s a much better guy than I am.’ I am but a mere mortal.” Santa is now a full-time gig and Hall takes it very seriously. How many department store Santas can quote from “My Life in Art” by Konstantin Stanislavsky or reference the acting techniques of Sanford Meisner? Hall is a character actor who’s landed an iconic role. “I love doing it. When I first started doing it, I said, ‘Well, I’ll do this for a couple of years.’ And it’s become a part of my life in a huge way,” he says. “It is magic for me. Like Santa, I’m a big kid.”‘Selfie’ is declared word of the year LONDON — Michelle Obama shared one with her “first dog” Bo, Hillary Clinton tweeted one with her daughter Chelsea. Now “selfie” — the smartphone self-portrait — has been declared word of the year for 2013, according to Britain’s Oxford University Press. The publisher of the Oxford dictionaries said Tuesday that “selfie” saw a huge jump in usage in the past year, bursting from the confines of Instagram and Twitter to become mainstream shorthand for any self-taken photograph. Researchers behind the renowned dictionaries pick a prominent word or expression in the English language each year that best reflects the mood of the times. Previous words of the year have included “unfriend” in 2009, “credit crunch” in 2008, “carbon foot-print” in 2007 and “Sudoku” in 2005. Judy Pearsall, the editorial director for Oxford Dictionaries, said “selfie” appeared to have been first used in 2002 on an Australian online forum, and the hashtag #selfie appeared on Flickr in 2004. “But usage wasn’t widespread until around 2012, when ‘selfie’ was being used commonly in mainstream media,” she said. Australian English sometimes uses the suffix “-ie” — such as bar-bie for barbeque and tinnie for a can of beer — which helps to explain where “selfie” may have come from, Pearsall added. Oxford usually assigns a separate word of the year to the U.S. and to the U.K., but it said “selfie” captured the imagination on both sides of the Atlantic this year. “Selfie” was added to the online Oxford dictionary in August.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2013 3A3A Fire in bedroom caused by candleBy AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comAn unintentional fire originating from a can-dle burned the bedroom of a Lake City home on Monday night, accord-ing to the Lake City Fire Department and Lake City Police Department. Luverna Hawkins, 65, of 602 NE Center Ave., lit a candle in her bedroom after the electricity kept flicker-ing on and off, according to reports from the LCPD and LCFD. She dozed off, but woke at approximately midnight to find her bedroom on fire. The LCFD responded to find a doublewide mobile home with heavy dark smoke escaping from its windows and eaves. The fire department extinguished the fire, determining that the ini-tial cause was a burning candle. Hawkins said she did leave the candle burning because of her concerns about the electricity. fallen from 49.3 percent in 2012 to 42.2 percent in 2013. However, that figure remains well above the statewide average of 25.8 percent. The decrease may be linked to a roughly 50 per-cent drop in arrests by CCSO, dropping from 1,311 in 2012 to 637 in 2013. Much of that change arose from a sharp decline in “miscel-laneous” arrests, such as probation violations and routine traffic offenses. Large variability in yearto-year numbers such as those could be attributable to the relatively small size of Columbia County’s pop-ulation. Hunter said the sheriff’s office is utilizing new technology in order to tackle crime more efficiently. “Say someone reports something stolen from their yard. We can map that now and we can study crimes in a given radius,” he said. “It’ll put a pushpin in a specific area of the county that’ll show all the thefts in the area. We then develop a ‘weather map’ of where criminal activity is taking place for various crimes and we can do tar-geted law enforcement in those areas.”Lake City Police DepartmentFDLE reported a 2.9 percent decrease in the city’s crime index, sliding from 580 in 2012 to 563 in 2013. Reports of forcible rapes, aggravated assaults, burglar-ies and motor vehicles thefts in the city all decreased between the first half of 2012 and 2013. Reported cases of robbery and larceny edged up slightly from last year’s numbers. However, LCPD’s number of arrests jumped roughly 31.5 percent, climbing from 311 in 2012 to 409 in 2013. The per-centage of cleared cases also improved from 16.9 in 2012 to 24.9 in 2013—just shy of the 25.8 percent statewide average. “We are encouraging our citizens to be vigilant in reporting suspicious persons or incidents in their neighborhoods and businesses,” Chief Argatha Gilmore said in a prepared statement. “Additionally, our crime prevention offi-cer is working with neigh-borhoods and community groups to educate them on how not to be a victim of a crime of opportunity.”FWC and FHPThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Florida Highway Patrol posted higher arrests in Columbia County since last year. The FWC recorded 25 more arrests, rising from 79 in 2012 to 104 in 2013. The FHP recorded 38 more arrests, rising from 238 in 2012 to 276 in 2013. The number of DUI arrests have risen county-wide as well, climbing from 58 to 72 over the first halves of the previ-ous two years. FHP made the largest portion of those arrests, totaling 44 for the first half of 2013.

There are some signs in place saying it’s illegal. This is one of those things we’re aware of and we want to address it. It’s becoming a real problem.” He added that illegal dumping becomes more of an issue during this time of year due to individu-als bringing waste from hunting camps and trips. A member of the advisory council asked if it were possible to lock the dumpsters to prevent illicit dumping. “You can do an enclosure around the dumpster, but...usu-ally the dumpster man shows up, goes out to unlock the gate and will leave it wide open,” Pittman said. “We’ve run into that before. Or as soon as we put enclosures up, [people] start throwing things between the dumpsters and the wall. It’s a constant battle.” According to FS 403.413, illegally dumping any amount of trash under 15 pounds is punishable by a $50 civil penalty. Trash loads between 15 and 500 pounds could bring a first degree misdemeanor and up to one year in prison. Over 500 pounds could land someone with a third degree felony. In addition, the violator may be required to perform an arbitrary amount of community service to rectify the behavior. “We do report problems to law enforcement...during their patrols, they may drive by and see if they can catch anybody,” County Manager Dale Williams said at the meeting. “[Another] thing we can do is send a code enforcement officer out [who] will literally sort through the garbage and look for names and try and make a case out of it.” According to Pittman, violators have been caught in the past due to the routine nature of their dumping. “If it’s becoming a real problem, contact our office [(386)-719-7545] and we’ll see if we can catch the indi-vidual who’s doing it,” Pittman said. The public may legally dump large quantities of trash at the Winfield Solid Waste Facility located at 1347 NW Oosterhoudt Lane just west of US 41 and north of I-10.JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter is acting as the middleman between FPL and residents who want the street lights to remain on in the neighborhood. He said FPL contacted the county and told them about turning the street lights off and the county asked FPL to leave the lights on until the situ-ation could be resolved. “It will adjust every year,” he said of the $38 rate. ‘We’re (Columbia County) not collecting it and making money off of it. We’re doing this as a conduit between you and FPL.” Lisa Roberts, Columbia County Administrative manager who gave the pre-sentation, said the lights are owned by FPL and were originally installed at locations decided by the developer. The developer had an agreement with FPL so that the lights would operate through Nov. 2013. The deadline for returning the ballots was extended a month to Friday, Jan. 10. If adopt-ed the $38 annual bill will be added to the ad valorem tax bill for a minimum of 10 years. Buddy Hines, a neighborhood resident, asked several questions during the meeting and collected names following the meeting to begin a push for residents to return the ballot. “I think it’s obvious we need to maintain the streetlights, we just have to figure out the best way to go about doing it,” he said. “In reality to looking at the attendance of the meeting tonight, you’re not going to get 75 percent of the people to respond positively or negatively. I think it would be more appropri-ate to count the ballots of people that submit them, than to allow people to vote ‘no’ simply by ignoring it. I think it’s obvious that every-body here tonight was interested in maintain-ing the street lights. Our job now is to go out and reach those neighbors that weren’t here, or may have not gotten the notification.” Hines asked people are interested in keeping the street lights on to contact him by e-mail at: Ethel Hazelwood, a resident in the neighborhood, said she had concerns with the neighborhood’s lighting because not all areas of the neighborhood are adequately lit. “The area by my house I have a light, but as you come into my development, those people do not have a light. It’s hard to see as you’re coming in,” she said. “The light is for walking, driving and safety. We have people who comb the neighborhood for thievery, so if there’s no light, that’s going to give them a better chance.” However, Hazelwood said she didn’t believe that people would think it was fair to pay the $38 annual fee if they weren’t going to benefit from the lights. “If we’re not going to protect everybody, then why protect anybody,” she asked the audience. “It’s unfair for us to pay for some-thing we don’t have.” Roberts said the county engineer and FPL representatives determined the location of the five new lights. Several residents ques-tioned the light locations and Roberts said the potential locations will be re-assessed, however, any additional lights would cause the $38 fee to increase. The county plans to send out additional letters in the near future notifying residents about the proposal and the possibility of the street lamps being turned off. No one injured in Monday night blaze at mobile home. Baker woman faces vehicle theft charge By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Macclenny woman, arrested Friday, faces vehicle theft charges for allegedly taking the car of an acquaintance’s overnight guest to run errands. Joevita Ann Staley, 40, 5071 Wilson Road, Macclenny, was charged with vehicle theft and booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $5,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriff’s Office reports, Deputy Joshua Samson was dispatched to the Quick Stop parking lot near the intersection of Lake Jeffrey Road and Wilson Street to investigate a stolen vehicle call. While en route he was advised by dispatch that a Lake City Police Department officer had conducted a traffic stop on a silver Mercury Marquis and that the vehicle’s owner was also at the scene and said the vehicle had been stolen. The car owner said when she woke up she realized her car keys were missing and when she went outside she realized her car had been stolen from where she left it parked over-night at Five Points Pawn. Staley was handcuffed and taken to jail without incident, the report said.

BY EMAIL: Photo ban is bad policy – and against the law China eases ‘one-child’ policy but may be too lateT otalitarian governments pride themselves on thinking Big Thoughts. Unfortunately, totalitar-ian governments are structurally incapable of thinking through the inescapable conse-quences of their Big Thoughts. One particularly apt example of this hubris was China’s Great Leap Forward, when Chairman Mao decreed mass collectivization of agriculture and grandiose indus-trialization schemes like backyard blast furnaces. Unfortunately, the economy leaped backward for the four years of the experiment and at a minimum 18 million Chinese died by starvation or execution as the Communist Party tried ever more draconian measures to make an unworkable policy work. Now China’s rulers are gently unwinding one of those Big Thoughts -the hated one-child per family policy intended to solve what was seen as runaway population growth. The policy worked: The birth rate fell from 4.77 children per woman in the early 1970s to 1.64 in 2011, according to the U.S. The policy was enforced through huge fines, official harassment and in extreme cases by forced abortions and unof-ficially by infanticide of girl babies who were thought less desirable. The long-term consequences are now becoming glaringly evident: China expects its working-age popu-lation, ages 15 to 64, to shrink by 67 million workers over the next 20 years. Fewer workers mean employ-ers will be forced to pay higher wages, depriving the Chinese economy of one of is great cost advantages. The shortage of female babies -published figures put the male-to-female birth ratio at 1.13 to 1.17, the most unbalanced on earth -means there will be a shortage of marriageable young women when the post one-child generation comes of age in 20 years or so. And there will be the problem, by no means exclusive to China, of a stagnant or shrinking working age population supporting a growing population of the elderly. The new policy allows couples to have a second child if one of the parents was an only child. The change may add only 1 million to 2 million above normal population growth. Initial reaction to easing the policy was favorable but as with so many Big Thoughts it might ultimately not work -maybe the Chinese no longer want larger fami-lies thanks to affluence and urban-ization. A study by the Shanghai city government cited by The Wall Street Journal said that couples born after 1980, the year the policy went into effect, say that on average couples are willing to have only 1.2 chil-dren. And the average number of children born per couple in the city is 0.7, well below the replacement rate. In solving one problem, China’s rulers have succeeded in creating more new ones. Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service. Dale McFeattersmcfeattersd@shns.comGratitude is the ultimate long viewT hey say farsightedness is one of those gifts that tends to come with age. Maybe so. In life or landscapes, in vision or vistas, whenever possible, I like to take the long view. For six weeks, I’ve been alone on a lake in the mountains where I grew up, watching fall work its magic outdoors, while I try to work indoors on a book. I wish you could see it.The lake, not the book, though I hope in time you’ll see it, too. My desk sits at a window, where I can look down into the water, as if on a boat, or far off at the horizon, as if on the back of a really big bird, to where the lake flows into the next basin. The view, if spectacular, is ridiculously distracting, with all manner of leaves and birds and fish and beauty screaming for my attention. If I had any sense, I would move my desk to some visually quieter location, maybe in the boathouse or under a bed. But here I sit staring at leaves so red they look like flames, and flocks of birds that scatter like a fistful of pepper tossed in the air, and fish that swim up to look at me, as if to ask when I’m coming out to feed them. The last few days put a damper on the view, as rain began to fall and a mist rolled in, muting colors, swal-lowing images, softening sounds. I got a lot of work done.At one point, I took a break and went out on the porch to sit in the rocker and close my eyes and smell the rain and listen to the drumming on the tin roof. As breaks go, on a 10-scale, I’d give it a 12. Just as I started back inside, the clouds thinned, and I saw the sun come swimming up from the bot-tom of the lake. I’ve seen it dance a thousand times on the lake. This was the first time I saw it dance underwater. While I stood there, looking down, I noticed something falling up at me, a tiny speck moving like a baseball in slow motion. As it grew closer, it started spinning, taking on a new shape like a star. I didn’t realize what it was until it quit coming toward me and sud-denly stopped, just to float on the water. A maple leaf. What I had seen, of course, was its reflection, as it fell from somewhere far above me all the way down to the lake. It made me laugh out loud in wonder and surprise, startling birds and frightening fish and feeling happy. I could’ve sworn that leaf was falling up at me. But things are not always as they seem. It’s all a matter of perspective. In three days, I will leave the lake to take some time off from writing, to go home and see if my husband remembers me, and spend a week in California, celebrating Thanksgiving with our children and grandchildren and family-like friends. As always, I will set two Thanksgiving tables for all the peo-ple I hold dear: One in my dining room (actually, my daughter’s din-ing room this time) for those who’ll be with us; and one in my heart for those who will not. I’ll save a place for you at that second table. Really. You don’t need to bring a thing. I hope your life, like mine, is so full of goodness and grace that when you try to count your bless-ings you’ll have to keep borrowing fingers and toes. Gratitude is the ultimate long view. It looks beyond the clatter of the moment and the tyranny of the urgent and the temporary setbacks in life -the hurts and fears, loss and disappointment that can seem to go on forever. Instead, it shows us the sun swimming up from the depths of a lake and a leaf falling down from heaven. Gratitude opens the eyes of the heart to see in the distance what is real and what is true. Please know I am always thankful for your readership and especially your friendship. Here’s wishing you and yours a grateful Thanksgiving. T he city council should abandon City Manager Wendell Johnson’s wrong-headed proposal to ban photos dur-ing public meetings. Not only is it bad policy, it is against the law. The proposal – to allow photos before and after meetings but not during them, except with permission of the mayor – surfaced Monday at a workshop during which this newspaper questioned the legality of such a measure. The Lake City Reporter later received confirmation from the attorney general’s office that such a move would in fact violate Florida’s open meetings law. Simply put, the public has a right to document a public meeting in photos – so long as it doesn’t create too much of a disturbance in the process. Under different circumstances, one might think it safe to assume the city would now back away from this misguided proposal. But then again, maybe not. The city manager generally gets his way, and this time he won’t even admit what he did is wrong. According to Johnson, since the mayor or presiding officer can waive the ban at will, it’s not really a “ban” at all. This is strange logic indeed.Simply including a provision by which a ban can be waived does not make it any less a ban. Beyond that, if a citizen has to get permission to exercise a right, it really isn’t a “right” at all. Johnson says his real worry is with maintaining order and decorum at public meetings. We agree that no one should be allowed to disrupt a public meeting in any way. We have seen other citizens with cameras move behind city officials’ chairs on the dais to get a better camera angle, or to sneak a peek at what’s on their desk during a meeting. Disturbances of this nature are unacceptable, but they have nothing to do with the functioning of a free press. If the city wants to solve its problem, it must simply find the courage to confront such dis-turbances head-on. Set reasonable rules of conduct, then enforce them. But barring the legitimate press from doing its job is not the answer. In this regard, logic, reason – and the law – are not on the city manager’s side.

By: Brian SGANGA These prescription sleeping pills will give you the zzzs Dear Pharmacist, What are the best medi cations to help me sleep? Ive tried all the natural remedies, I need some thing stronger! V.E., Sacramento, California Answer: Why, as a nation, do we have trouble sleeping? It should be such a natural act. I urge you to find the underlying cause of your chronic insomnia and to change your sleep habits because you cant rely on medication forever. Chronic insomnia may be caused by sleep apnea and sleeping pills in this case are dangerous. For some of you, a deficiency of your sleep hormone, melatonin, causes you to wake up very early. The point is that sleep disor ders arent always related to neurotransmitter imbal ances, so sleeping pills are not a wet blanket like everyone thinks. You can take them for awhile, but they just mask the underly ing problem. Here are the most popular medications: Ambien (zolpidem): Introduced in 1992, this helps put you to sleep, and keep you asleep. Many people reported having morning grogginess, so the makers came out with a controlled-release version in 2005 that works longer. Ambien usually puts you to sleep within 15 to 30 min utes. There are other brand names containing the same chemical ingredients such as a sublingual low-dose tablet called Intermezzo that you can take in the middle of the night. Theres Zolpimist an oral spray. Every now and then you hear a report of someone sleep-driving, having sex, making phone calls, sleepwalking and cooking meals. Lunesta (eszopiclone): Everything I said about Ambien applies to this drug, it is similar in mech anism of action, as well of duration of action. Sonata ( Zaleplon): Again, similar to Ambien, however, it has a very short duration of action. The advantage is you wont have morning grogginess, however the disadvantage is you may be staring at the alarm clock by 3 a.m. Rozerem (Ramelteon): This is my favorite sleep medication because it affects your melatonin receptors, increasing the length of time you sleep. You can start and stop as often as you wish, since there is no physical depen dence. The drug may affect prolactin and testos terone levels, so if you use it long-term (greater than 3 or 4 months), have these levels evaluated. Silenor (Doxepine): Introduced in 2010, this medication blocks hista mine receptors. It contains the same active ingredient as a popular antidepres sant, but in a much lower dose. I like that it does not have addictive potential. Benzodiazepine drugs (temazepam, alprazolam, clonazepam, lorazepam and others): Very afford able, and used for decades, these drugs have strong addictive potential and may cause daytime drowsiness. This category helps with some seizures. Insurance companies may have restrictions on which sleeping pills are covered, and will obvi ously expect you to buy generic; they often require you to try other approach es to your insomnia first.

Combining medications could put your child at risk From staff reports GAINESVILLE The use of medications to treat mental health condi tions in children is on the rise, bringing with it an increase in the combina tions of those drugs, an area in which there has been very little research until now. Almut Winterstein, Ph.D., a University of Florida College of Pharmacy professor in pharmaceutical outcomes and policy, is conducting a two-year study to identify potentially harmful com binations of psychotropic medications in children who receive Medicaid, and to help Medicaid discourage the use of those combinations. Psychotropic drugs are all medications used to treat mental health con ditions, including stimu lants to treat attention deficit hyperactivity dis order, antidepressants and antipsychotics. There are very few clinical studies that have been conducted really looking at the efficacy or safety of the use of com binations of psychotropic medications, Winterstein said. Yet many children do receive combinations, and we dont know what that mean. Many parents and health care providers have been concerned about the unknown effects of children taking multiple medications prescribed by various practitioners, Winterstein said. The largest growth in ADHD diagnosis is attributed to pediatricians and not to psychiatrists, Winterstein said. So you actually have several pro viders now who prescribe psychotropic medications and coordination between providers and understand ing of the various intents when psychotropic drugs were prescribed may be suboptimal. This study is one of three distinct projects Winterstein is conduct ing as part of a $510,788 research contract from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Agency for Health Care Administration. Administered through the Florida Center for Medicaid and the Uninsured at UF, the contract allows Winterstein and her team to purchase Medicaid bill ing data from 29 states to complete this research. Erectile Dysfunction Drugs May Be Dangerous To Your Health FREE book by doctor reveals what the By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical Writer DALLAS Todays kids cant keep up with their par ents. An analysis of stud ies on millions of children around the world finds they dont run as fast or as far as their parents did when they were young. On average, it takes chil dren 90 seconds longer to run a mile than their counterparts did 30 years ago. Heart-related fitness has declined 5 percent per decade since 1975 for chil dren ages 9 to 17. The American Heart Association, whose confer ence featured the research on Tuesday, says its the first to show that childrens fitness has declined world wide over the last three decades. It makes sense. We have kids that are less active than before, said Dr. Stephen Daniels, a University of Colorado pediatrician and spokesman for the heart association. Health experts recom mend that children 6 and older get 60 minutes of moderately vigorous activ ity accumulated over a day. Only one-third of American kids do now. Kids arent getting enough opportunities to build up that activity over the course of the day, Daniels said. Many schools, for economic reasons, dont have any physical education at all. Some rely on recess to provide exercise. Sam Kass, a White House chef and head of first lady Michelle Obamas Lets Move program, stressed the role of schools in a speech to the conference on Monday. We are currently facing the most sedentary genera tion of children in our his tory, Kass said. Study: Kids are less fit than their parents were Expert: Players still in fear of concussions By DENNIS PASSA Associated Press AUSTRALIA Chris Nowinski, a Harvard gradu ate and former wrestler, is a co-director of the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy at Boston University, otherwise known as the Brain Bank. It is one of the leading research groups in the world on the effects concussions are having on athletes, high lighted by recent cases involving NFL players. Nowinski, in Melbourne meeting with officials from the Australian Football League players association, says there still has to be a culture change with the players ... they still have that impression that their job or role might be at risk.

Home againBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High returns home for the FHSAA Class 6A Region 1 semifinals with Bartram Trail High coming into the Jungle. Head coach Brian Allen said it’s a great feeling for the team and community to be playing at home. “It’s an exciting feeling,” Allen said. “We didn’t antici-pate having that opportu-nity. It’s a good feeling. It’s always good to get one or two of them at home in the playoffs. It’s an opportunity for the community to see to us in the playoffs. Over the last three years, we’ve only had two losses here. It’s a nice feeling as opposed to being on the road.” And the Tigers look to be healthier than they’ve been in a long time heading into the game with Lonnie Underwood back at full strength. “Looking at that 73-yard run, that was kind of what told me he was back to 100 percent,” Allen said. “I wasn’t sure he was totally back. He popped that run, turned on the jets and broke a tackle. All those things said he’s back and that’s what we need at this point in the season. Having him back to form is going to be big for what we do.” Allen also says he’s in a good spot with two quar-terabacks playing at a high level. “It’s been the conversation all year and nothing has changed from that,” Allen said. “Going into the week we were going to rotate two to one with Nate (Taylor). It’ll be similar this week. Jake (Thomas) will prob-ably get the two this week and Nate gets the one. If he’s hot, he’ll get it. That’s how it’s going to work.” Allen said it’s a good problem for the Tigers to have. “They all do different things that are beneficial to this program,” Allen said. “The hot guy will have the opportunity. You don’t know who is hot until you put them in. Hopefully the competition will make them both be efficient and help us win football games with them knowing togeth-er we can do something special.” Columbia returns to Tiger Stadium for second round.Schools sealed for Lady Tigers Kvistad, McCauley, Morgan sign TuesdayBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High head coach Jimmy Williams had mixed feelings about letting his trio of seniors sign to college programs on Tuesday. Kayli Kvistad (University of Florida), Caleigh McCauley (Valdosta State University) and Brandy Morgan made it official by signing on the dotted line at Columbia High School’s Auditorium. “For them its an exciting time,” Williams said. “For us, it’s a sad time as we have to let them go.” Williams is proud of the Lady Tigers and said it all starts at home. “They bring good parents with them that really contributed to our success as a program and that’s where they get their work-ing habits,” Williams said. “They’ve been really great the last three years as far doing things that we need to make us be better, so the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” Williams said that he’s been a fan of these girls’ play for a long time. “I’ve watched them all play since they were 12,” Williams said. “Brandy, the first time I saw her play out-field, I thought she might be the best outfielder I’ve ever seen. McCauley played on my team when she was 14. The better the pitching, the better she hit it. It’s just amazing that she has the knack for hitting good pitching. To me, they’re like my own kids. Kayli, you get the reputation of being a good ball player growing up and I try to keep track of those things. Her reputa-tion was she was good, but she’s way better than her reputation. She’s by far the best hitting ball player I’ve seen.” Williams said it’s a good thing for all involved to watch the girls succeed. “When they sign a college scholarship, it just makes our community, school and program look better,” Williams said. “They’re just straight up all-American girls. They’re the type of kid that you’d be proud to have as your own. Before these three came along, we were happy to win districts. Now the goal is to go to the Final Four and win it. They just changed the whole mindset of the program.” For McCauley, the thing that made her a college CHS continued on 2BBRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Caleigh McCauley, Brandy Morgan and Kayli Kvistad sign softball scholarships on Tuesday.

For details, call Kevin Gray at 365-2096.Q From staff reports player was her determina-tion. “I guess the will to win and want to succeed,” McCauley said. “I’m a Florida State fan, but they don’t have my field of study, Valdosta State was my No. 1 school. I’ve been wanting to go there for a very long time. I didn’t think I could ever do it, and the fact that I am means more than anything.” Morgan said it was the atmosphere that felt like Lake City that made choos-ing her college destination an easy one. “I chose my school, because when I got on campus it felt like a sec-ond home,” Morgan said. “Being a college ball player, you put in the work outside of hours even when prac-tice is over. So it’s just the hard work paying off.” Kvistad has been a Florida commitment for some time now, with many colleges offering the star a chance to play at the next level. In the end, it came down to academics and that’s why the Gators got the final call from the Lady Tigers’ slugger. “I chose Florida, because if I had the choice, I always wanted to stay home,” Kvistad said. “It came down to Florida and Florida State. If I ever got hurt and couldn’t play, Florida is where I wanted to be aca-demically. I spent numer-ous hours practicing and emailing coaches. I just think all the hard and dedi-cation paid off.” Of course the Lady Tigers have one more year with the trio, and they’ll look for another state championship.


DEAR ABBY: My husband and I want to start a family, but until now our circumstances have not made this possible. After a big move and starting a new business, we have decided it’s about time. My problem is my husband uses drugs to relieve stress. I don’t feel he abus-es them; it just takes the edge off after a hard day’s work like a glass of wine does for me sometimes. I would like him to stop taking the drugs while we are trying to conceive in case it could affect the baby. He is unwilling and it makes me crazy. I have decided that if he can’t do this, he isn’t ready to be a father. On the other hand, he’s a hard worker, and I wonder if by asking him to do this I am being selfish. Please give me some advice. — READY FOR MOTHERHOOD IN MISSISSIPPI DEAR READY FOR MOTHERHOOD: You are NOT being selfish, you are being prudent. According to Dr. June Reinisch, director emerita of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction: “There is some evidence that sug-gests certain drugs can attach to the sperm and therefore affect the fetus. So the best plan for a healthy baby would be for the man to be as ‘clean’ as possible before he starts to make a child. This is because sperm are pro-duced about three months before they are released.” DEAR ABBY: One of my husband’s relatives is filing for bankruptcy for the third time. His wife recently started to receive disability. I believe they are abusing the system. I know she was not truthful on her disability applica-tion. I work in the health care field and in the past have completed evaluations for disability claims. I know the only way she would meet the requirements would be if she misrepre-sented her current abilities. Everyone else in the family works hard to sup-port themselves, so I can’t understand how this atti-tude is tolerated. What has pushed me over the edge is they have announced they’re going to have a “bankruptcy party.” They have invited everyone over to enjoy food and beverages that will be pur-chased with a credit card they have no intention of paying. I feel an obligation to alert the disability office to her misrepresentation. My husband agrees that what they’re doing is wrong, but he doesn’t want me to do anything about it. This has caused a problem between us because I no longer want to go to family dinners. I know if I keep going and have to listen to them laugh about using taxpayer dollars to sup-port their laziness, I will eventually explode. What do you think about this? — SOMEWHERE IN THE U.S.A. DEAR SOMEWHERE: I think your relatives are committing fraud and that it should be reported. Disability payments were meant for individuals who truly need them, not those who are gaming the sys-tem. And if you choose not to associate with these kinds of morally bankrupt individuals, you shouldn’t have to. I can see how it would ruin your appetite. Shenanigans like this should be investigated and the abusers prosecuted to the full extent of the law. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Don’t let emotions push you over the top. The less said, the better. Channel your energy into work and getting ahead, not what someone else is doing to make your life difficult. Refraining from expressing a reaction that will keep an assailant at arm’s length. ++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): A travel destination that promotes cultural differences will be a learn-ing experience. Educational pursuits will enable you to expand your interests as well as use what you have discovered to help you prosper. A property deal or joint venture looks promis-ing. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Embrace change; adaptability is what keeps you in the game. Your abil-ity to multitask along with your unpredictable nature will make it difficult for any opponent you encounter to match your wit, versatility and unique blend of intel-lect and charm. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Easy does it. You need a creative outlet or a way to express your feelings. Impulsive moves based on an assumption must be avoided; however, sharing your intentions and showing affection will help to improve your love life. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep your intentions a secret until you have every little detail worked out and you are ready to execute your plans. A pre-mature disclosure will lead to conflict and a series of delays. Reach out to some-one who has something to offer. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Communication will buy you an invitation to a function that will help you advance personally or pro-fessionally. The people you meet or share ideas with today will help contribute to your success. Love is in the stars and romance is high-lighted. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Step back from a situation that can lead to rela-tionship problems. Listen to complaints but don’t attempt to make sense out of what’s going on until you have had sufficient time to gather the facts and consid-er your options. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Gatherings will lead to valuable informa-tion. Talk to people who can offer an inside view of a situation you don’t under-stand. Romance will ease your stress and improve your personal life. An unusual change at home will turn out to be beneficial. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Treat relationships with tender, lov-ing care. Anger or using force will get you nowhere. Back away from any situa-tion that has the potential to explode. Focus on home, family and making your per-sonal environment friendly and welcoming. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Sign on the dotted line. Whether you are making a personal or business proposal, you have the upper hand. Your insight, coupled with your ability to handle any situ-ation you face, will make transactions easy. Romance is highly suggested. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Do what’s expected of you and keep moving. It won’t pay to get into an argument with someone. Whatever change you want to make, do so quickly and without draw-ing attention to your plans. Avoid an emotional force play. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Implement your ideas and you will receive compliments as well as enthusiasm and what-ever assistance you need to complete what you are trying to do. A celebration will turn into a romantic realization that will improve an important relationship. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
