student
Anthony
Newton didn't set out
with the intentions to
write a book. But a
handful of incensed
thoughts posted on
his personal blog soon
turned into something
more - becoming the
inspiration for his first
novel, "Make or Break."
A 2008 Columbia
High School graduate
and former student
body president, Newton
has aspirations to'
become a teacher in the
community. He said he
was inspired to become
a teacher after watching
his mother; and he
said there is something
special about being a
positive role model in the
community, especially as
a minority.
"That in itself is
enough to draw you into
the profession, especially
if you have the heart for
it," he said.
While Newton said he
has always been an avid
reader, he never had
the' intention of writing
or publishing a book. In
fact, "Make or Break"
started out of anger from
a personal,situation with
an ex-girlfriend, he said.

lab and looking to set a
crowd record.
Success came on launch
try No. 6, on the eve of
the 40th anniversary of the
liftoff of man's first moon
landing.
Endeavour blasted off a
little after 6 p.m. from its
seaside pad - the same
one used to launch Apollo
11 on July 16, 1969 - a,
welcome sight for shuttle
workers who had to over-
come hydrogen gas leaks
last month and, since the
weekend, thunderstorms.


The skies finally cleared,
allowing commander Mark.
Polansky and his crew to
embark on their 16-day
adventure. One more hold-
up and they would have
tied a record for the most
shuttle launch delays.
"The weather is finally
cooperating, so it is now
time to fly," launch director
Pete Nickolenko called out
to the crew. ."Persistence
pays off."
Replied Polansky:
"Endeavour's patiently
waited for this. We're ready


to go, and we're going to
take all of you with us on a
great mission."
The astronauts will catch
up today with the space
station, which was soaring
more than 220 miles above
the Pacific at launch time.
When they do, it will be
the first time 13 people are
together in space.
Ten is the previous
record.
The doubling of the
space station crew a few
months ago, to six, makes
the new record possible.

Yates finds a home as Harry Potter director


NEW YORK
_ peak to many 12-year-old
fans about the various film-
makers behind the "Harry
Potter" films and you're
likely to realize that the
auteur theory is alive and well.
Yes, the belief that a movie is
ultimately authored by its director
applies even to the billion-dollar
S.franchise spawned by J.K Rowling's
best-sellers. The films have had
four directors, and the fingerprints
of each are evident to Potter fans,
young and old alike.
Despite the turnover, Hogwarts
finally has its filmmaking headmas-
ter: David Yates. Just as he helmed
the last "Harry Potter" film, he
directs the latest, "Harry Potter
*' and the Half-Blood Prince," which
opened in theaters Wednesday.
Yates is also in the midst of shoot-
ing the adaptation of Rowling's final
book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly
Hallows," which is being divided into
two films.
It's an unlikely match for the soft-
"" spoken Yates, whose previous work
was almost entirely in British televi-
sion.
By bringing his own sense of
- realism - and by incorporating the
approaches of the previous three
". Potter directors: Chris Columbus,
' Alfonso Cuaron and Mike Newell
- Yates has settled into the Potter
directing chair and brought the fran-
chise its best reviews yet.

Ukraine bans 'Bruno'

ion journalist-from Austria.
The ministry said Wednesday that

Some Austrian officials have spo-
ken out against the film, but have
not taken any action against it.

WARSAW, Poland - Britney

Singers Paisley, Krauss
to play White House
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Country
musicians Brad Paisley and Alison
Krauss will play a high-profile gig
next week at the White House.
A spokeswoman for Paisley said
Wednesday that he and Krauss, who
had a hit duet a few years ago with
"Whiskey Lullaby," will participate in
the White House Music Series host-
ed by First Lady Michelle Obama.
On Tuesday afternoon, they'll help
with an educational workshop for
120 middle and high school students
from across the country.
That night, they'll play in the
historic East Room for President
Obama and his wife, White House
staff and members of Congress.
Michelle Obama launched the

WRITER: Creates first of three part fiction series


Continued From Page 1A
"I blog daily," Newton
said, "and when I began
writing this, I put the first
chapter online. I had a lot
of people inquiring about
it, asking what happened
next. I never really sat
down and decided I
would write a book until
I posted the 15th chapter
and thought I needed to
find a way to end it."
"Make or Break"
centers on Isaac
Richman, who seemingly
has it all until tragedy
strikes, and Isaac must
find a way to continue
his quest with God
through romance,
corporate greed and
family values.
Newton calls the book's
main character, Isaac
Richman, a sort of alter-
ego of his, and noted that
while the book itself isn't
a personal biography of
his life' - "most of it is
fictional," he said - he
has woven bits and pieces


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City
'Make or Break,' written by Anthony Newton, is his first novel.
It is published by Simmons Publishing.


of his personal life into
the narrative.
Two more books are
set to round out the
series, now a trilogy
- "Autumn's Leaves,"
which will focus on a


character from the "Make'
or Break," is expected to
be released before year's
end, and "Where I Lay"
will serve as the series.
finale.
The book is published


by Simmons Publishing,
owned and operated
by fellow CHS alumni
Justin Simmons. Newton
said the two were both
student government
officers in high school,
and Simmons closely
followed Newton's
blogging that would
become "Make or
Break." He said the two
worked together to comb
through the manuscript
for necessary edits.
"I love working with
him," Newton said. "If I'd
had to go through this
process with anyone else,
I would've probably said
some bad words along
the way, but it has been a
pleasure to work with him."
Newton said he hopes
to have a book signing
in early August, and
the book is currently
available for sale at the

PRISON: Officials seek input from commission


Continued From Page 1A
the matter at tonight's 7
p.m. Columbia County
Commission meeting at the
Columbia County School
Board Administrative
Complex Auditorium.
Columbia County
Industrial Development
Authority executive direc-
tor Jim Poole is expected to
address the board of com-
missioners requesting their
opinion about whether the
commission is supporting
or not supporting the pro-
posed facility.
"This is not a project we
have handled," Poole said
of the industrial develop-
ment authority. "I'm going
to ask the commission if we
still stand at the same place
as last year.".
In June 2008, Michael
Harling, executive vice
president of Dallas, Texas-
based Municipal Capital
Markets Group Inc., the
finance company for the


facility, approached county
officials and pitched the
idea about the facility.
However, Poole said
county officials discussed
four items they said they
would have to see in order
to provide (the county com-
mission's) support for the
proposed facility.
Last year commissioners
were split 2-2, voting to not
submit a letter of support
for the project based on the
Capital Market's original
proposal that would have
left the county with a 20-
year bond but only a pos-
sible 10-year contract.
Other items the county
discussed then included
no public financing for the
facility, no impact on other
governmental entities and
an understanding that as a
private facility,- it would be
subject to ad valorem taxa-
tion levied by the county.
Poole said the group has


not been in contact since
then, and he only recently
saw them at last month's
scoping meeting. He said
he learned about the scop-
ing meeting the day prior
to the meeting.
"We've had no contact
from them," Poole said. 'To
the best of my knowledge
the development authority

the month, with no sup-
port or comment from the

county, Poole is planning
to ask whether commis-
sioners have changed their
minds as far as support
for the. proposed private
prison.
The United States
Department of Justice
Federal Bureau of Prisons
is considering building a
prison in Columbia County


to 'house criminal illegal
aliens. The department
held an environmental
impact meeting here last
month regarding the pro-
posed prison. The meet-
ing was attended by more
than 50 people, must who
publicly spoke against the
proposal.
The prison would be a
privately owned and oper-
ated facility which would
house 1,250 male, illegal
alien criminals. The facility
would provide 250 full-time
positions.
The prison would run on
a $14 million annual opera-
tions budget with $10.4 mil-
lion going towards annual
salaries, wages and ben-
efits.
The annual utility costs
for the prison has been esti-
mated at $700,000 and the
estimated construction cost
for the project has been
listed at $65 million.

"It's alleged that Taylor,
former pastor, forged docu-
ments to receive loans and'
mortgages from a local
bank," Seifert said. 'Taylor
opened several credit card
accounts without the approv-
al of the church board.
Taylor is also accused of
using donated property
(land) as collateral to receive
the loans. It is estimated that
he defrauded the church of
more than $250,000."
Arrest warrants were also


issued for Raburn for alleg-
edly conspiring with Taylor
to defraud the church.
"It is believed that Raburn
is no longer in Lake City,"
Seifert said.
Seifert said additional
arrests are pending in the
case as the investigation
moves forward.
The Community Mercy-
Center was affiliated with
the First Assembly of

center had a goal to provide

for charges related to the
incident.
Teresa Lynn Kravec,
27, no address provided
and Shaconda Tillman, 28,
no address provided, were
charged with false imprison-
ment, aggravated child abuse
and child neglect Kravec is
the boy's aunt Authorities
did not release information
on their bond amounts.
According to Lake City
Police Department reports,
officers were called to
the Sugar Mill Apartment
Complex just before 5 p.m.
Tuesday in reference to a
four-year-old being left home
alone.
The preliminary investiga-
tion indicated the child was
left home alone in a locked
apartment with all the doors
and windows secured.
"He had bruises all over
his body and injuries on both
wrists and his right ankle
area" said Lake City Police
Department public informa-
tion officer Capt. Rudolph
Davis.
Davis said the boy was
released into the custody
of children and family ser-
vices.
"As far as we can tell,
he's still there," Davis said.
"Usually they try to place
them in a foster home, but
I don't know whether he's�
been placed in a foster home
yet"
An EMS unit was called


to check the child and emer-
gency personnel cleared him
indicating he didn't have any
injures that needed immedi-
ate attention.
"The bruises were old and
they kind of validated what
the child said about being
tied up before," Davis said,
noting the child guessed he
had been tied in the bath-
room about five times with
"what appeared to be like a
telephone cord".
There were three other
children that lived in the
home. Two of those children
belonged to Tillman and
the other child belonged to
Kravec.
"They are all in
Department of Children and
Family Services custody and
they all appear to be four
years old or younger," Davis
said.
He said so far there are
indications one of the other
children might have been
abused.
"Department of Children
and Family Services is trans-
porting the child to the Child
Protection Unitin Gainesville
for a medical and physical
examination," he said,_ not-
ing the child's age was not
released.
Davis said the investiga-
tion is on-going.
"We-don't expect to make
any more arrests," he said.
"They were the caretakers of
the child."

is charm

I- F -" or the fleet of eye,
that brief, bright
glow over Columbia
County at 6:03 p.m.
. L, Wednesday wasn't a
reflection. It wasn't a shooting
star. After a month of delays,
space shuttle Endeavour roared
into orbit, bound to rendezvous
with the international space
station.
For NASA, six times was
the charm - that's how
many attempts it took to lift
Endeavour from its launch pad
following a series of hydrogen
gas leaks and thunderstorms.
While this delay was costly
in terms of time, patience and
money, in the end it will allow
Endeavour to link not only with
the space station, but with his-
tory. The shuttle lifted off from
the same pad which launched
the rocket that would allow
man's first moon walk, Apollo
11, 40 years ago today.
Because of this historical
footnote, it is fitting that this
current mission is also on tar-
get to generate its own place
in the history books. Once the
shuttle is docked, it will be the
first time 13 people are togeth-
er on the space station.
Unlike that first moon walk
- a purely American endeavor
to fulfill one American's
promise to his nation - this
history-in-the-making will.be an
international affair. The
combined.crew of the space
station will contain astronauts
from America, Canada, Russia,
Japan and Belgium.
It is this partnership, in
addition to the technology that.
makes a two-week stint in space
possible, that exemplifies just
how far our space program has
come in four decades.

A needless and reckless delay


Not a moment too
soon, the Senate
has confirmed
President Obama's
nominee to head
the Census Bureau, and now
preparations on the critical 2010
national head count can begin in
earnest.
One of the first issues our
Constitution addressed was the
requirement to hold a decennial
census. It used the phrase "actu-
al Enumeration," which prob-
ably seemed unremarkable at
the time but has since become
an issue of political controversy.
The official now respon-
sible for that count is Robert
Groves, 60, a respected survey
researcher from the University
of Michigan and a former asso-
ciate director of the Census.
He has already found himself
back in the identical controver-
sy as when he left the Census
in the 1990s. The dispute is
over statistical sampling and it
breaks down by party. Census
takers going door to door and
relying on mail-in question-

Those people don't seem to

Wrong time for
impact fees
To the Editor:
Welcome to White Springs.
Pay up! You've lived here all
your life and your son wants
to put a trailer on land next to
you? Pay Up! The White Springs
Town Council adopted impact
fees at its June meeting and will
now charge $3,000 for each unit
of new development.
Do you want to place a trailer
on a lot in White Springs? Are
you planning to build in White
Springs or put in a business?
Tack on $3,000 to your costs
because the council wants you
to pay for the police, water and
recreation you will supposedly
use. Of course, you must also
pay garbage, water and sewer
bills monthly, pay your property
taxes and pay a 10 percent tax
on all your utilities including
electricity and propane.


latures are apportioned and how
$400 billion in annual federal aid
is divvied up.
Groves was easily approved
by the Senate Committee on
Homeland Security, but a group
of Republicans blocked a vote
in the full Senate over concerns
about statistical sampling;
whether ACORN, the organi-
zation accused of vote fraud,
would be among the volunteer
organizations the Census
enlists; to protest the timing
of Sonia Sotomayor's Supreme
Court hearings; and maybe just
sheer cussedness.
Senate Democratic leader
Harry Reid finally called a pro-
cedural vote to override the
delays, and the 76-15 outcome
was a good barometer of Senate
sentiment on what was a need-
less and even reckless delay.
Now if only Americans will do
their part by cooperating with
the Census.

They passed this impact tax.
in the face of stiff opposition
from the chamber of commerce,
educated public administrators
and their own citizens. They
did so despite the fact-'that we
are in a recession and other cit-
ies are stopping impact fees to
encourage growth. They did so
when Hamilton County is try-
ing desperately to bring in new
industries and growth. They did
so even though we don't have
enough people in town to pay
for our government and they
raise taxes and fees every year.
Water and sewer money now
goes to pay salaries and expens-
es that are not even related to
water and sewer costs.
The town charter gives us a
remedy for council action that
goes against what the people
want; and there is now a petition
circulating that will force the
council to reconsider. If they do
not, there can be a referendum
where the people can decide the
issue..

The chills

of global

warming

As cap-and-trade
advocates tie their
knickers in knots
over so-called
"global warm-
ing," Mother Nature refuses
to cooperate. Earth's tem-
peratures continue a chill that
began 11 years ago. As global
cooling accelerates, global-
warmists kick, scream, and
push their pet theory - just
like little kids who cover their
ears and stomp their feet when
older children tell them not
to bother waiting up for Santa
Claus on Christmas Eve.
Consider how the globe
cooled last month:
* June in Manhattan aver-
aged 67.5 degrees Fahrenheit,
3.7 degrees below normal
- the coldest average since
1958. The National Weather
Service stated July 1: "The last
time that Central Park hit 85
in May ... but not in June was
back in 1903."
* In Phoenix, June's high
temperatures were below 100
degrees for 15 days straight,
the first such June since 1913.
In California's desert, Yucca
Valley's June average was 83.5,
8.5 degrees below normal.
Downtown Los Angeles aver-
aged 74.5 degrees, five below
normal.
* Boston saw temperatures
4.7 degrees below normal.
'This is the second cold-
est average high temp since
1872," veteran meteorologist
and Weather Channel alum-
nus Joseph D'Aleo reports at
Icecap.com. "It has been so
cool and so cloudy that trees
in northern New England
are starting to show colors
that normally first appear in
September." Looking abroad,
D'Aleo noted: "Southern Brazil
had one of the coldest Junes
in decades, and New Zealand
has had unusual cold and snow
again this year."
* New Zealand's National
Climate Centre issued a June
2 press release headlined,
'Temperature: Lowest ever for
May for many areas, colder
than normal for all."
* South African officials
say'cold weather killed two
vagrants in the Eastern Cape.
Both slept'outdoors June 26
and froze to death.
Simmer down, global-warm-
ists retort. These are mere
anecdotes, hand-picked to
make them look silly.
Well, one would be foolish
to challenge space-born satel-
lites that gauge' Earth's mean
temperatures - cold, hot, and
average. Here again, evidence
of global cooling accumulates
like snow drifts.
"There has been no sig-
nificant global warming since
1995, no warming since 1998,
and global cooling for the past
few years," former U.S. Senate
Environment Committee
spokesman Marc Morano
writes at ClimateDepot.
comrn. Citing metrics gathered
by University of Alabama,
Huntsville's Dr. Roy Spencer,
Morano adds: "The latest glob-
al averaged satellite tempera-
ture data for June 2009 reveal
yet another drop in Earth's
temperature ... Despite his
dire warnings, the Earth has
cooled 0.74 degrees F since
former Vice President Al Gore
released 'An Inconvenient
Truth' in 2006."

BRIEFS GM works to become LOCAL STOCKS


11 connected with
insider trading

WASHINGTON - The
Securities and Exchange
Commission says it's
charged 11 people in con-
nection with separate
insider trading schemes.
The SEC claims that five
people illegally tipped off
others or traded on pri-
vate information ahead of
Liberty Mutual Insurance's
2008 announcement that it
would acquire Safeco.
One of the five charged
is a former Goldman Sachs
investment banker who the
SEC says illegally tipped
off his brother. Three of
those five people charged
have agreed to pay pen-
alties and other costs to
settle the charges. *
. In addition, the SEC
says that six other people
illegally traded on non-
public information ahead

Partners' 2005 announce-
ment that it would acquire

NEW YORK -
Drugmakers Merck & Co.

casting doubt on the effec-
tiveness of two blockbuster
cholesterol drugs.
The companies settled
with attorneys general
from 35 states and the
District of Columbia. The
investigation centered on
allegations the companies
kept quiet the results from
an unfavorable study, vio-
lating consumer protection
laws. Merck and Schering-
Plough will pay back the
costs of the investigation,
but don't have to make
other payments or admit
wrongdoing or liability.
In January 2008, the
companies released study
data showing Vytorin
and Zetia, sold by the
Merck/Schering-Plough
Pharmaceuticals joint ven-
ture, were not more effec-
tive than an older, much-
cheaper drug at reduc-

New hydrogen
plant in works

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.
- A New Mexico-based
energy technology compa-
ny says it plans to develop
what it calls the world's
first utility-scale, zero-
emissions hydrogen power
plant.
Jetstream Wind Inc. offi-
cials said Wednesday that
the plant would use wind,
solar and other renewable
energy sources to pro-
duce hydrogen through
an electrification process.
That hydrogen would be
burned in a turbine to gen-
erate enough electricity to
power about 6,000 homes.
The plant also would be
able to capture and store
oxygen and hydrogen in
liquid and gaseous forms
for secondary markets.
The company broke
ground on the $219 million
project earlier this month
in Truth or Consequences
in southern New Mexico.

more agile, efficient


Associated. Press

DETROIT - The new
General Motors Co. began
changing its executive
ranks and streamlining-
its management structure
Wednesday, announcing
,the departure of several
top officials.
The biggest change is
combining research with
product development
effective immediately. The
two had been separate
teams.
GM says in a statement
that the move is a step
toward making the com-
pany more agile and effi-
cient.
The company also says
Vice President of Research
and Development Larry
'Burns and Vice President
of Communications Steve
Harris will each retire
effective Oct. 1.
CEO Fritz Henderson
promised to streamline
GM's bureaucratic man-
agement structure and
cut. executive ranks by 35
percent. Changes are to


be announced by the end
of July.
Combining product
development and long-
term research gives GM
the ability to tie research to
future products, but it also
could cause it to get short-
changed at budget time,
said Martin Zimmerman,
a former Ford Motor Co.
chief economist who now
is a professor of busi-
ness administration at the
University of Michigan.
"The product develop-
mentguys are rightly going
to be concerned, about the
near-term deployment of
the technology, and the
R&D guys typically are
concerned .,about farther
out," Zimmerman said.
"The management prob-
lem comes when you have
your budgeting decisions
and there's going to be
a tug between stuff that
looks near-term and the
longer-lead stuff."

sure from the GM's larg-
est stakeholder, the U.S.
government, wants a more


Oil prices



rise above



$61 a barrel


By CHRIS KAHN
Associated Press

NEW YORK - Oil pric-
es rose above $61 a barrel
Wednesday, riding gains on
Wall Street and a govern-
ment report that said U.S.
crude supplies dropped
more than expected.
Benchmark crude for
August delivery added $2.02
to settle at $61.54 a barrel
on the New York Mercantile
Exchange. In London, Brent
prices rose $2.56 to $63.42 a
barrel on the ICE Futures
exchange.
During the past few
weeks, crude fell from its
peak and has loitered near
$60 a barrel as America's
expanding population of
unemployed workers left
doubts about a quick eco-
nomic recovery. A weaker
dollar combined with a rally
in equities markets has kept
oil prices from falling fur-
ther, however.
The Dow Jones Industrial
Average and The Nasdaq
composite index rose more
than 2 percent in midday
trading.
Crude barrels, which are
traded in dollars, go up in
price as the dollar falls and
foreign investors find they
have more buying power.
Investors also see crude as
a safe haven from inflation,
and they've pumped money
into oil futures on the expec-
tation that oil will get more
expensive as the economy
improves.
Meanwhile, the Energy
Information Administration
reported Wednesday that
the country's supply of
crude oil dropped more
than expected last week,
falling by 2.8 million barrels.
However, the U.S. is still
swimming in surplus oil. It's
total inventory of 344.5 mil-
lion barrels is 16.5 percent
above last year's levels.
Inventories of gasoline
and distillate fuels, such as
diesel and heating oil, also
rose last week.
Rising world stock mar-
kets also propped up crude
prices, with major exchang-


es logging gains in the wake
of better-than-expected
earnings reports from Intel
and Goldman Sachs.
Trader and analyst
Stephen Schork said prices
could swing either way in
the next few days, setting a
longer-term trend.
At the pump, retail gas
prices dropped more than
a penny overnight to a new
national average of $2.504
per gallon, according to auto
club AAA, Wright Express
and Oil Price Information
Service. A gallon of gas is
16.5 cents cheaper than
a month ago and $1.605
cheaper than last year.

El


nimble company, one that
can make decisions faster
and is less bureaucratic
than the GM of the past.
In the old GM, several
committees often reviewed
decisions, holding up new
vehicles and making it
slow to respond to market
changes. Designs were
often changed from bold
to bland, with GM stamp-
ing out nondescript cars
such as the old Chevrolet
Malibu.
Henderson plans to
thin 'executive ranks from
about 1,300 to 850 by the
end of the year. Total U.S.
salaried employment will
drop by 6,150, or 21 per-
cent, from 29,650 at the
start of the year to 23,500
by the end.
Burns, 58, a 40-year GM
veteran, has .led the auto-
maker's move into alterna-
tive fuel technologies such
as hydrogen fuel cells. He
also has been an advocate
for the industry to connect
vehicles electronically to
make roads safer and ease
traffic flow.

MIAMI BEACH - Fresh
off the success of their lat-
est album, Grammy-winning
reggaeton stars Wisin and
Yandel are donating $25,000
to the Habitat for Humanity
of Greater Miami.
The duo from Puerto Rico
also announced Wednesday
they will donate $1 from
every ticket sold for their
U.S. tour this fall to the
organization, which pro-
vides modest homes, to
'low-income families: Their
show opens in Miami on
Sept. 17.
"At this point in our
careers, it's more than just
selling records or count-
ing the number of fans we
have," Wisin, 31, said. "It's
about how blessed we are
to have this opportunity to
give back and help others
in need."
The donation comes as
the pair were honored with
three gold albums and one
platinum during a news con-
ference at'the Gansevoort
Hutel in , ! i.1 Beach.
,: asked to name the
first item they purchased
once they achieved suc-
cess, Yatidel held up a dia-
mond-crested necklace with


a dangling round pendant
that read, "W&Y."
'This is one of the first
things I bought for myself,"
Yandel said. "I normally
leave it at home, but I want-
ed to bring it today."
. Wisin and Yandel, the
stage. names of Llandel
Veguilla Malave and Juan
Luis Morera, released
their seventh album, "La
Revolucion" in May. The
lead single, "Abusadora"
is No. 7 on the Billboard
chart.
The duo has collabo-
rated with artists like 50
cent, Akon, Lenny Kravitz
and Enrique Iglesias. But
they said the experience of
worldng with Paris Hilton
on her debut single "Stars
Are Blind" was still fresh on
their minds.
'"She was really sweet,"
Yandel said. "It was a lot of
fun giving that song, a reg-
gaeton touch."
They won a Grammy
in 2008 for best Latin
urban album of the year
for their last album,
"Wisin vs. Yandel: Los
Extraterrestres." They also
won Latin rhythm album of
the year for a duo or group
for the same album at the

Senate votes to

By RICARDO ALONSO-

WASHINGTON - The
Senate health commit-

Wednesday to approve leg-
islation expanding insur-

Americans, becoming the
'first congressional panel
to act on President Barack
Obama's top domestic pri-

SThe 13-10 party line

require individuals to
get health insurance and
employers to contribute to
the cost. Democratic lead-
ers are driving for floor

goes on its August break.

WASHINGTON - The

driver's licenses to thwart

the country would do that
and save money,' Homeland
Security Janet Napolitano
said Wednesday.
If Congress agrees to
modify one of the post-9/11
laws, the new secure license
would replace the Bush
administration's proposed
Real ID card with something
called a Pass ID card.
Napolitano testified the
Bush administration pro-
gram is unrealistic because
it's too expensive, and the
technology necessary to
validate the planned Real ID
licenses is not available.

WASHINGTON -
Supreme Court nominee
Sonia Sotomayor declined
repeatedly at Senate confir-
mation hearings Wednesday
to disclose her views on
abortion rights, and said
President Barack Obama
never asked her about the
issue before he chose her
for the bench.
"I can't answer... because
I can't look at it in the

Tom Coburn, R-Okla., as he
sought to draw her out with
questions about hypotheti-
cal cases.
Even if she knew more
about the specifics of a
case, she added, "I probably
couldn't opine because I'm
sure that situation might
well arise before the court."
The Oklahoma
Republican had posed
a case in which a woman

"I can't answer that in the

"The. question as it would

WASHINGTON -
President Barack Obama's
plan to dramaticallyincrease
college student aid took its
first. step Wednesday on
what could be a rocky path
through Congress.
'A key lawmaker pro-
posed a bill to boost Pell
Grant scholarships for low-
income students by linking


them to inflation for the
first time since the program
began.
House Education
Committee chairman
George Miller's legislation
would pay for the expan-
sion by eliminating a mas-
sive program of subsidies
for private college loans
- an idea that is opposed
by lenders and their many
supporters on Capitol Hill.
Obama's education sec-


retary, Arne Duncan, said
the government should
spend education dollars on
students and riot .on private
lenders.
"There is tremendous
need, given the tough,
tough economy, for fani-
lies to send their children
to college," Duncan said
during a Wednesday con-
ference call with Miller, D-
Calif. "And -we believe we
need to invest in them and


not in banks."
Under the bill, subsidized
loans would be replaced by
the government's existing
direct loan program.
Besides Pell Grants, $10
billion of the estimated $87
billion in savings from elim-
inating subsidies would go
toward early childhood edu-
cation, increasing the num-
ber of poor children with
access to pre-kindergarten,
among other things.,

Consumer, gasoline prices jump in June


ASSOCIATED PRESS
In this June 17 file photo, a New York City cab driver fills his
tank with gasoline in New York.


By MARTIN CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON-
Consumer prices shot
up in June by the larg-
est amount in 11 months,
reflecting the biggest jump
in gasoline prices in nearly
five years.
The Labor Department
said Wednesday that infla-
tion at the consumer level
rose by 0.7 percent last


month, slightly higher than
the 0.6 percent increase
that economists were
expecting. It was the big-
gest one-month gain since
a 0.7 percent increase last
July.
The big jump was seen as
a temporary blip, however.
Inflation is not expected
to be a problem any time
soon given a severe reces-
sion which is keeping -a lid
on wage pressures.'


The Federal Reserve
reported Wednesday that
industrial production fell
0.4 percent in June as the
recession crimped output
for a wide range of manu-
factured goods including
cars, machinery and house-
hold appliances. However,
the decline was not as
severe as the 1.4 percent
plunge in May, a possible
sign that the recession is
easing its grip.

Suicide bomber
kills six people

BAGHDAD - A suicide
bomber on Wednesday
killed six people, including
an Iraqi policeman, in an
attack on security forces in
a former insurgent strong-
hold in Iraq's western
Anbar province, police said.
A Baghdad bombing killed
five other people.
Wednesday's attack in
the western city of Ramadi
was carried out by a suicide
bomber driving a minibus
who struck a checkpoint
of Iraqi soldiers and police,
killing a policeman and five
civilians, said a local police
officer. Earlier reports said
six policemen were among
the dead.

Explosion in Paris
kills 2, injures 6

PARIS - An explo-
sion at a petrochemical
plant in eastern France
on Wednesday killed two
people and injured six, the
French oil giant Total said.
Several others were bur-
ied under the rubble, local
authorities said.
The blast occurred at
Total's factory in Carling-
Saint-Avold, near the bor-
der with Germany, the com-
pany said in a statement.
Two people died and the six
injured have been hospital-
ized, Total said.
Local officials at the office
of the Moselle regional gov-
ernment said several people
were buried .under the rub-
ble but did not elaborate.
Total's statement made
no mention of possible fur-
ther casualties.

Israeli soldiers
speak out on war.

JERUSALEM - Quotes
from interviews with
Israeli soldiers published
Wednesday by "Breaking
the Silence," a human rights
group of former Israeli
soldiers. The group said it
withheld the names of the
soldiers because many are
still serving and could be
punished.
Commanders' alleged
comments on shooting at
civilians: "In urban warfare,
anyone is your enemy. No
innocents."
"I am not willing to allow
a soldier of mine to risk
himself by hesitating."
"Better hit an innocent
than hesitate to target an
enemy."

U.S. troops seize
police station

CARACAS, Venezuela -
Dozens of National Guard
troops seized control of a
police station controlled
by a leading opponent of
President Hugo Chavez on
Wednesday, adding to ten-
sions between Venezuela's
government and elected
opposition officials.
About 40 National Guard
troops tossed tear gas canis-
ters at a police precinct post
in the town of Curiepe, east
of Caracas, shortly before
dawn, said Elisio Guzmarn,
director of the Miranda
state police. He said the
officers inside were forced
to leave and the National
Guard occupied the build-
ing.

Silver found off
Argentine coast

BUENOS AIRES -
Divers battling high winds
and waves have recovered
nearly a ton of unrefined sil-


ver from a ship that recently
sank of f the Argentine coast,
police said Wednesday, eas-
ing suspicions about insur-
ance claims on the vessel.
About 20 divers aided by
a robot submarine recov-

official in the city of Rio

Norman still entertains,

with Evert by his side


The Shark returns
once more to the
British Open.
By TIM DAHLBERG
Associated Press
TURNBERRY, Scotland
- The shock of white hair
hasn't changed much. The
swing is pretty much the
same, too, though these
days people no longer
crowd around the tee just
to see how far he can bang
it down the fairway.
They come to see Greg
Norman for other reasons
now, not the least of which
is the blonde woman who
watches from outside the
ropes. As -theater goes,
the Chris and Greg Show


is -almost as entertaining
as Norman himself in his
prime.
A year ago they inter-
rupted their honeymoon
so Norman could play a
little golf in England, and
magic ensued. He hit the
shots. His wife, tennis great
Chris Evert, led the cheers.
Together they plotted the
next day's strategy.
The impossible didn't
happen, but for once it
wasn't really Norman's
fault. This wasn't the Great
White Shark throwing up
a five-shot lead in the final
round to lose the green
jacket he was all but mea-
sured for at the Masters in
1996, or Norman shooting
76 on the last day a decade
earlier to lose the PGA.


No, the years 'simply
caught up with him on a
blustery Sunday when
Padraig Harrington did
things a 53-year-old man
couldn't, namely shooting
32 on the back nine to win
his second straight British
Open championship.
The difference this time
was that the fans under-
stood. They cheered
Norman and his new bride
for making the effort and
for rekindling some memo-
ries of what once was and
what might have been.
He'll give them another
chance to cheer when he
tees off Thursday in search
of something even he can't
define. He's not predicting
he will beat Tiger Woods,
and has no illusions about

holding the claret jug when
it's all over.
He's in a race against

reminds him about every
time she kicks him out to
practice. It's not a race he
can win, but Norman seems
OK with the idea that he
can at least hold it to a draw

ST. LOUIS - Carl
Crawford's glove and a
dominant bullpen helped
save the AL's streak.
Crawford pulled back

the American League a

DEAR ABBY


Having friends is essential

for kids with special needs


I


DEAR ABBY: I am writ-
ing this in response to the
letter from 'Trying to Make
a Difference in Ohio" (April
21). She is the 12-year-old
girl who wants to help, other
students be more accepting
of kids with special needs.
My name is Anthony
Kennedy Shriver, and I am
the founder of Best Buddies
International, a nonprofit
dedicated to enhancing the
lives of people with intellec-
tual disabilities by providing
opportunities for one-to-one
friendships and integrated
employment.
I believe that friendship is
the key to building the self-
esteem essential to a happy
and productive life, and that
is why I started Best Bud-
dies. In just two decades,
Best Buddies has grown
from one chapter to more
than 1,400 chapters in 42
countries. Our six programs
- Best Buddies Middle
Schools, High Schools, Col-
leges, Citizens, e-Buddies
and Jobs - positively impact
more than 400,000 individu-
als with and without intellec-
tual disabilities annually.
At Best Buddies, we envi-
sion a world where people
with intellectual disabilities
are , recognized for their
ABILITIES, embraced by
society and valued in the
workplace. Until that vision
becomes a reality, we will
continue to educate middle
school, high school and col-


just one child can make if he
or she reaches out a hand in
friendship. Read on:
DEAR ABBY: My son is
autistic and was teased badly
by his classmates. I worked
with the school to address
the issue. The school talked
to some wonderful older stu-
dents about mentoring my
son. They became his bud-
dies, keeping an eye on him
and teaching him how to
more appropriately interact
with other kids.
The truth is, there are far
more nice kids than mean
ones in this world, and.find-
ing students .eager to help
wasn't hard at all. The day
those kids walked up to my
son and asked him if he
wanted to play catch was the
happiest day in his life. He
beamed from ear to ear, and
he hasn't stopped since.
Any young person can ab-
solutely change the life of a
child with special needs just
by being a friend. - DIAN
IN OAK PARK, ILL.
DEAR ABBY: I'ih a
speech language clinician
who has worked for more
than 25 years in the public
schools. I have found that
presenting information to
students about what it means
to have a disabling condition
is essential.

GOOD F
ADVICE
FER
FELLERS

..ITS

ZITS


GARFIELD


B.C.


FRANK & ERNEST


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): You may have
to work a little harder to
please the ones you love
but don't give up. Your posi-
tive attitude and motivating
spirit will win. With a little
nurturing and undivided
attention, you'll be on your
way to getting your way.

TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): You may be out
of sorts or emotional about
what others are doing-or is-
sues that are occurring, but
you mustn't let this deter
you from moving forward
with your own personal
plans. You can ease your
stress with some unortho-
dox moves. ***
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Don't be too quick to
disregard what someone
is doing or offering you. A
good idea may not be per-
fect in your mind but, if you
think it through, you will
realize how you can turn
something mediocre into
something fantastic. ***
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): You are heading
into territory that may not
be familiar but, in the end,
it will lead to a better posi-
tion or higher status. There
is something worth saying,
so do not hold back when
you have knowledge to
share. ****


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Word

LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): Give a little thought
to love and romance and
you will find you are in a
position that will bring you
great joy. Your charm and
generosity will make every-
thing fall into place. A good
deal will change your direc-
tion for the future. **
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Don't be shy because
someone is trying to make
you feel inept. You have
more to offer and can make
a huge difference. Your re-
sponsible and concrete way
of dealing with others will
draw attention. *****
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Give whatever you are
working toward a shove be-
fore you lose momentum.
Inspiring others to take
part and contribute to your
vision will keep things on
schedule. You don't have
to overspend or exaggerate
to get the help you require.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Be careful with
whom you share your per-
sonal information. Someone
will play emotional games
with you if you are the.least
bit difficult to deal with.
Put your efforts toward im-
provements at home. ***


SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Don't forget
about the ones you love and
the people who have stood
by you through thick and
thin. An opportunity may
appear insignificant at first
but, in time, you will discov-
er that it's a much bigger
deal than you anticipated.

CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): A home
project or a financial invest-
ment will pay off. Mix busi-
ness with pleasure and you
will have a winning situa-
tion. Someone will want to
partner with you - check
credentials first. *****
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): You have to
keep your emotions out of
any important decisions
you make. If you let some-
one alter your direction or
take you off your targeted
course, you will have to
backtrack. Staying in con-
trol will lead to your suc-
cess. **
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Get out and
touch base with people
you haven't seen for a long
'time. The information you
receive about a possible
deal or job will help you
get back in the running for
something you long to do.
Your past will help you get
ahead now. ****

Martin roars back into




PRIME TIME


Lt seems appropriate that a driver hav-
ing a dream season would do most of
JLhis winning at night.
Veteran Mark Martin, back on the job
full-time at age 50 after two seasons as a
part-timer, scored his Sprint Cup-leading
fourth win of the season Saturday night
at Chicagoland Speedway. It was his third
in a night race, the other two coming at
Phoenix and Darlington.
It was a dominating performance,
with plenty of late-race drama. For most
of the race, Martin cruised out front, lead-
ing four times for a race-high 195 laps.
Then some late-race cautions, and the
ensuing double-file restarts, shuffled him
back before he seized control on one of
those restarts, then mastered the rest to
beat his Hendrick Motorsports teammate
Jeff Gordon to the finish line by a scant
0.415 seconds.
Martin's 39th career Cup victory
boosted him back into the top 12 in the
points standings (only the top 12 after 26


races will run for the championship), but
just barely He's 11th, just one marker
ahead of 12th-place Matt Kenseth. It also
put him one race away from tying Harry
Gant's five-win season in 1991, the gold
standard for NASCAR drivers past their
50th birthday
Martin's performance at Chicago was
the kind generally expected from a bold,
young gun, not one who is right in the
middle of NASCAR's unofficial retire-
ment window.
But Martin isn't just any old driver.
His ability and desire have never been
questioned. But be did admit to being
burned out by the demands of the job -
many of them away from the race track -
in his last years driving for Jack Roush.
And he admitted Saturday in his win-
ner's interview that the non-stop obliga-
tions that come with the job had begun to
affect him where it mattered most - on the
track.
"I felt like my performance was
already slipping in '05," Martin said. "In
'06, I1 thought my performance was slip-
ping.
"I didn't want to hang on my down-
ward slide," he said. "I was really burned
out, and I needed a break and a chance to
reevaluate things and a change of
scenery."
That change of scenery came in
the form of a part-time ride at Bobby
Ginn's race team in 2007. Then last
year. he got in the No. 8 car at Dale
Earnhardt Inc. and took it straight
to the lead pack nearly every time
he drove it.
"Really fast. Had a chance to
win a couple of races. Sat on the ",
outside pole sLx times." he said
Then Rick Hendrick came


calling with a full-time offer to drive the
No. 5 formerly driven by Kyle Busch. This
time, it was no burned-out driver making
the decision.
"Between the confidence that I gained
driving the 8 car and Rick, I was persuad-
ed to do it," Martin said. "And I can't
believe what an idiot I would have been
had I not. I had no idea it could be like
that. Had no idea it could be this much
fun.
"And [crew chief Alan Gustafson] and
the team are a huge part of that. But Mr.
Hendrick is a huge part of that as well --
his organization, the professionalism, the
people, the way that they have treated me
and my teammates. The whole thing has
been beyond my dreams."
Most figured he'd stay a year, run for
the championship that has eluded him
throughout his career, then turn the car
over to rookie Brad Keselowski. Now, the
car appears to be Martin's indefinitely
Keselowski, now racing in the Nationwide
Series full-time and part-time in Cup for
Hendrick, is currently pondering other
plans for next season.
If Keselowski holds out for the 5 car,
he may be on the sidelines quite a while, if
you can believe what Tony
Stewart says about
Martin.
"I'm telling
you, the man has-
n't lost any-
thing," Stewart
said. "He's been
in his prime for
" ~M~ :30 years now."

Some drivers believe the double-file
restarts are not in their best interest.

New restart rules

have some drivers

questioning change

Double-file restart rules - where the
leaders start side-by-side with the lapped
cars at the back - have been used for years
on Saturday night short tracks, but only for
a few weeks in NASCAR.
Now, NASCAR drivers are beating and
banging like a bunch of amateur drivers,
except they're doing it at about double the
speed. Not surprisingly a lot of equipment
is getting torn up, and a lot of tempers are
heating up as well.
Some drivers are starting to say that even
though the new rule may juice up a race,
it's not necessari-
ly a good thing.
Jeff Burton is
among them. STANDINGS
"Double-file
restarts four 1. Tony Stewart
weeks in a row 2,884; lIader
and I have been
in wrecks four 2. Jeff Gordon
weeks in a row," 2,709; behind: -175
Burton said. "I

about, but my 2.526; behind: -358

we have been in ' 2,385; behind: -499

said. "I am about 8. Kasey Kahne
done with them." 2.336; behind: -548
Jeff Gordon
said he's not sur- 9. Juan Montoya
prised to see driv- 2,321; behind: -563
ers angry about 10. Kyle Busch
the effects of the 2,298; behind: -586
new rules.
"I didn't expect 11. Mark Martin
anything any dif- 2,296; behind: -588
ferent when it
was implement- 12. Matt Kenseth
ed," he said. 2,295; behind: -589
"Fifty percent of
the guys out
there are going to
like it, 50 percent of them are going to hate
it."
But he pointed out that the rules weren't
written with the drivers' best interest in
mind.
"It's for the people in the grandstands
and the people at home," he said. "I think
it's a great move. I think it changes how we
have to race one another. We have to pick
and choose how aggressive we're going to
be, whether you're on the inside or outside.
I.. It's exciting, man. That's putting on a
heck of a show."
Kurt Busch's crew chief Pat Tryson had a
different opinion after his driver lost a good
finish after contact with Jimmie Johnson
on a double-file restart.
"Everybody just started running into
each other, and it's just stupid," Tryson
said. "That's what everybody wants to see,
anid they got what they wanted."
