The Community Mercy
Center has intentions
to continue with its mis-


sion, but
a recent
scandal
maysignal
the end of
the First
Assembly
of God Taylor
Church,
which was tied to the cen-
ter through Rev. Samuel


Darin Taylor.
Taylor served as the pas-
tor of the First Assembly
of God Church until last
month, and was the presi-
dent and executive director
of the Community Mercy
Center, a shelter designed
to serve homeless needs
of Columbia County resi-
dents.


Paul Mabile, co-owner
of Morrells, was recently
elected to serve on the
Community Mercy Center's
executive board and said he
hopes the center can con-

County shows support, residents take sides


Commission

support.
By TONY BRITT

Columbia County offi-
cials have decided to give
a letter of support for a
privately-owned and oper-
ated prison to be built in
Columbia County. The
facility would house male.
criminal, illegal aliens
until they're deported.
The prison would be built
from a contract with the
federal bureau of prisons..
A majority of
Columbia County com-
missioners voted to
reaffirm the county's
initial letter of support
if prison officials agreed
to comply with their
initial proposal to pay
ad valorem, use private
money to construct and
operate the facility and
have no impact on other
governmental entities
during Thursday's coun-
ty commission meeting.
The three commission-
ers that voted in favor of
giving another letter of
support, Ron Williams,
Dewey Weaver and Jody
Dupree, all cited the
economic impact the
facility would have on
the county.
"I am 100 percent for
this project come hell or
high water," said District
1 County Commissioner
Ron Williams. "These
are good paying non-
recession jobs."

Astronauts inspect shu


'We have a bit of

NASA official.

AP Aerospace Writer
CAPE CANAVERAL -
Space shuttle Endeavour's
astronauts inspected their
ship for damage Thursday
as NASA 'struggled to
understand why a normally
benign section of the fuel
tank lost so much foam
during liftoff.
"We have a bit of a mys-
tery," said shuttle program


manager John Shannon.
"We're not worried about
this flight, but we need to
understand what was going
on for the next flight."
The slow, tedious inspec-
tion work unfolded as

the international space sta-
tion for a Friday linkup.
It was the first full day in
orbit for the seven astro-'
nauts, who are delivering
a veranda for Japan's enor-
mous lab. It also happened
to be the 40th anniversary
of the launch of the first
manned moon landing.
At a news briefing,


Shannon said the thin
layer of foam insulation
on the central area of
the tank peeled \away in
approximately 6-inch strips
as Endeavour blasted
toward orbit Wednesday.
The green primer on the
metal skin of the tank was
exposed in places.
Fortunately, he said, the
shedding from this area
- the so-called intertank
connecting the hydrogen
and oxygen reservoirs -
occurred well past the criti-
cal two-minute mark in the
flight and posed no danger
to Endeavour.

Sherman Stanley, owner

- to benefit animals.
"Everyone has a pet,"
Stanley said. "A lot of times
we forget that there are pets
out there that people don't
take care of, and are abused

Sometimes you just have to
give back to what you reap

McCartney performs where Beatles made debut

NEW YORK . .. . -


Paul McCartney returned
to the Ed Sullivan Theater
45 years after the Beatles
made their U.S. television
debut there.
This time, McCartney put on an
outdoor show atop the theater's
marquee for thousands of fans
Wednesday. The performance was
shown during the former Beatle's
first appearance on CBS' "Late Show
With David Letterman."
The Beatles made their American
television debut on 'The Ed Sullivan
Show" on Feb. 9, 1964.
During his appearance with
Letterman, McCartney recalled that
it was "kind of scary" the first time
the Beatles appeared on Sullivan's
show.
However, he didn't acknowledge
it when a floor manager asked "you
nervous?" when the curtain was
about to be raised for McCartney to
perform "Yesterday" alone without
his bandmates.
"You should be," McCartney said
the manager told him. "There's 73
million people watching."
Letterman said that his impression
of the Beatles was that it was four
guys on a long spring break, having
a great time. The Beatles went brief-
ly to Miami the first time they came
to the United States.

"It's not my vision for

because of other economic
development projects
which could be placed in
the area.
Frisina said she had a
tough time deciding, wheth-
er to support the project,
but ultimately decided she
was not going to support it,
Several people spoke at
the meeting asking for the
commission's support and
non-support for the project.
Michael Harling,
executive vice president
of Dallas, Texas-based
Municipal Capital Markets
Group Inc., the finance
company for the facility,
addressed the commission
at the meeting and seemed
pleased to garner support
from a majority of commis-
sioners.
"I'm encouraged about
the project," he said after
commissioners voted on
the issue. ' I welcom-e
their support. Whether
it's 3-2 or 4-1, it's still a


majority support and the
main point of what I heard
is they're picking up on
the economic develop-
ment and job benefits.
Regardless of what you
think about this type of
business, it's good paying
and doesn't require col-
lege,education and I think
it will be good for the com-
munity and I appreciate all
the support."
Although a majority of
the county commission
voted in favor of giving the
letter of support, Weaver
pointed out that the
county's letter will not be
the ultimate deciding factor
on the prison coming to
the area.
He said as long as prison
officials have the proper
permits, the United States
Department of Justice
Federal Bureau of Prisons
could build the prison in
Columbia County with little
or no say so from county
officials.

Laws to


decrease


infant


deaths
Sudden Infant Death
Syndrome, in which
a baby dies in its
sleep for apparently
no reason, was long a
mystery. But a groundbreaking
series of stories over two years
by Scripps Howard reporters
Thomas Hargrove and Lee
Bowman proved what many
medical professionals suspect-
ed - that many SIDS deaths
were largely not only explain-
able but also avoidable.
Forty years of research
has failed to make a dent in
the problem and even now
almost 5,000 babies die from
unexplained causes each year.
Hargrove and Bowman found
that addressing the problem
was hampered by a patchwork
of local standards and methods
for investigating infant deaths,
when they were investigated at
all; the uneven training of the
people doing the investigating;
and sloppy record keeping.
The solution was universal
standards and standardized
record keeping, backed by
adequate federal funding, and
now that cause has been taken
up by Sen. Frank Lautenberg,
D-N.J., and Rep. Frank Pallone,
D-N.J.
In a bill widely endorsed by
child safety advocates, the two
lawmakers would take on the
problem of unexplained infant
deaths and the estimated 25,000
still births each year by estab-
lishing a national infant death
registry to be run by.the U.S ..
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention, promoting uni-
form national protocols for the
investigation of .infant deaths
and setting federal standards
for comprehensive autopsies
of infants and children. And
the bill would.provide federal
grants to help states comply
with the new standards.
Lautenberg said. in unveiling
the bill, "The loss of a child
is devastating and no parent
should have to live without
knowing why their child has
died." This bill, if it becomes,
law, would go a long way
toward making sure they don't
have to, and if it helps prevent
infant deaths and stillbirths,
fewer of them will have to face
such painfulfindings.

Fighting Islamists in Afghanistan


A fghans and
Pakistanis both
dislike the term
"AfPak." But the fact
is the two nations
now constitute a single front
- the most "kinetic" front - in
the global war being waged by
militant Islamists.
During his presidential cam-
paign, Barack Obamna empha-
sized his opposition to the
conflict in Iraq but was adamant
about the need to prevail in
Afghanistan. And this month,
American Marines launched
Operation Khanjar (Thrust
of the Sword), Obama's own
"surge" of troops into Helmand
Province where, over the past
two years, the Taliban has
been regrouping and regaining
power. The White House has
pushed the Pakistani govern-
ment to challenge the Islamist
insurgents on its territory as
well.
The goal is straightforward:
to "disrupt, dismantle arid
defeat" both the Taliban and al-
Qaeda in their southern Asian
strongholds. But the means to
those ends are deceptively com-
plicated, as was made clear at a
recent "experts workshop" on
the "AfPak Theater" organized
by the Foundation for Defense
of Democracies, the policy insti-
tute I head.
The Taliban took over
Afghanistan in the 1990s and
promptly gave safe haven to
al-Qaeda. From its headquar-
ters in the southern city of
Kandahar, al-Qaeda plotted
- and then celebrated - the
atrocities of Sept. 11, 2001.
In response, the United
States toppled the regime. But
the Taliban's leader, Mullah
Mohammed Omar, and al-

Single-payer system
would fix our ills
To the Editor:
We need single-payer gov-
ernment health care. A public
option thrown in to the private
mess will only make a bigger
mess. The insurance companies
and their paid-for cohorts in
.congress are lying to you when
they say we have the best sys-
tem in the world. Facts prove
otherwise.
Per capital we spend $6,700
to help fewer people than does
Canada at $3,600 and France at
$3,400. Close to 20,000 people
die each year in this country
simply because they have no
coverage. Manynore linger in
pain and suffer without treat-
ment.
They try to stop you from
questioning private coverage in
a number of ways. They scare
you with the word "socialism."
Nobody is running away in fear


Cliff May


Qaeda's leader, the Saudi mul-
timillionaire, Osama bin Laden,
escaped across the border into
northwestern Pakistan, an area
so wild Pakistanis sometimes
describe it as "Jungle-stan."
Over the years since, the
United States and its NATO
allies have attempted to,
bring security and stability to
Afghanistan with limited suc-
cess. During this same period,
both al-Qaeda and the Taliban
have expanded their operational
bases in Pakistan. In 2008, the
Taliban moved into the Swat
valley, just a short march
north of the Pakistani capital of
Islamabad.
President Obama is no
advocate of "nation building."
But he appears to recognize
that unless we leave behind in
Afghanistan a government that
can provide for its self-defense
and maintain the support of the
population, new Taliban fight-
ers will emerge - and they will
slaughter those who cast their
lot with us.
And even if Afghanistan were
to be transformed into Costa
Rica, it would count for little
should militant Islamists take
over nuclear-armed Pakistan. An
al-Qaeda statement, issued last
month, read: "God willing, the
nuclear weapons (in Pakistan)
will not fall into the hands of the
Americans, and the Mujahideen
would take them and use them
against the Americans."


The emir of the Taliban in
Pakistan, Baitullah Mehsud,
believed to be responsible for
the assassination of former
Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto,
has ambitions that go beyond
Pakistan's borders. "We want to
eradicate Britain and America,
and to shatter the arrogance
and tyranny of the infidels," he
has said. 'We pray that Allah
will enable us to destroy the
White Houge, New York and
London." 'Just bluster? That was
the view of many analysts in the
1990s when Osama bin Laden
was making similar threats.
The U.S. military can do only
so much to support Pakistan's
moderates. But the CIA's use
of Predator drones apparently
has been effective, with at least
eight major al-Qaeda leaders
recentlyy eliminated.
Bin Laden was not wrong
when he said people prefer a
strong horse to a weak horse.
Al-Qaeda in Iraq was defeated
only after Iraqis became con-
vinced that America's military
was "the strongest tribe," a'nd
would not abandon them.
If the AfPak Theater reinforc-
es this perception of the United
States., it will be a victory. If not,
it will be a defeat. By the same
token, America's efforts in the
global war will be advanced if,
on this front as in Iraq, militant
Islamism is shown to be a dead
end - in both the figurative and
the literal senses. Only then will
Afghanistan and Pakistan have
a chance -to evolve into the inde-
pendent and successful nation
states so many of their citizens
would like them to be.

the government insuring your

these days.
They tell you about "wait

They fail to tell you what hap-

Right now, 30 percent of your
private dollar goes to admin-

There is 4 bureaucrat working
at your private insurance com-

a way to deny you coverage.
When he or she succeed they
get a bonus, while you may get

They tell you businesses can't
handle a tax increase to cover
all this. Ask GM what covering
all the costs did: to them. Many
smaller businesses fold in an
honest attempt to cover their
employees. Read about some
of them on Senator Bernie

They would welcome single-

HOUSTON, Texas -
was one of the students
hearing Professor Homer
G. Barnett's lectures on
the history of anthropol-
ogy at the University of
Oregon the year before he
retired. That was more than
three decades ago.
Barnett was among reasons
I was in graduate school at
Oregon in the first place. He is
largely responsible for how we
think about "innovation" today.
He tied it in with ideas about
"culture change" and wrote a
book using those words in the
title. Also, he had been on the
committee that had given me a
very handsome scholarship. I
had to pay my respects to this
scholarly icon and take in his
parting wisdom.
"There is no such thing
as race," I remember Prof.
Barnett saying.
In those activist times, I
could understand "equality"
and "justice" as public values.
But he was showing, that sci-
ence came into it through
various researchers who had
developed classification sys-
tems about genetic variation.
They showed that people, like
plants, can be of mixed and
many characteristics. All that
was understandable. But the
lesson went further.
The one that stumped me
was that some people could
not see race at all. It wasn't
there. Well, that just seemed
impossible. Of course you can
see who is in front of you. I
was unconvinced.
I was walking toward the
university's Knight Library
when the realization struck
me like a thunderbolt. I was
about 10 years old, in Miss
Bowman's room at De Zavala
elementary school. My class-
mate, Louis Sanchez, was
black in that predominantly
Mexican-American school in
segregated Texas. How could
that be? More to the point,
why - knowing for more than
a decade - had I not realized
it before now? For me, that
was the empirical truth behind
what Prof. Barnett was saying.
The first native chronicles
talked about half-man of no
color and half-horse. It is proof
that prior knowledge, belief,
fear or goodwill shape what
we perceive and how we see
it. Anthropologists are among.
those, distinct from others who
study policy and politics with a
keen insight into how humans
put together ideas about the
world in which we live.
For that reason I was
thrilled that the American
Anthropological Association
had mounted the exhibit
"Race: Are We So Different?"
at the Science Museum of
Minnesota in St. 'Paul.
' It is surprising, but this is
the first time an exhibition has
been mounted in the United
States to address race from
the biological, cultural, and
historical points of view. The
timelines, dating from the
1600s to the present, include
how recent race-based notions
have crept into our conscious-
ness, when some of them did
not exist before, as with immi-
grants (see www.understandin-
grace.org/home.html).
If there is a great national
purpose served by this impor-
tant project, it is encapsulated
in a quote from author James
Baldwin, who said, "Not
everything that is faced can be
changed, but nothing can be
changed until it is faced."
The exhibit will be on

CIT shares plummet after


government refuses bailout


By STEVENSON JACOBS
and DANIEL WAGNER
AP Business Writers

NEW YORK - Denied a
federal bailout, CIT Group
Inc. said late Thursday its
board and management
continue to seek alter-
natives to shore up the
company's cash position
and remain in talks with
potential lenders to secure
financing and stave off a
' bankruptcy protection fil-
ing.
CIT saw its shares plunge
75 percent Thursday as
bondholders scrambled
to find an 11th-hour solu-
tion that would keep the
commercial lender out of
Chapter 11. But there is no
guarantee they will be able
to save the ailing company,
which teeters on the brink
after failing to get emergen-
cy government funding.
CIT said late Wednesday
that talks with regulators
about a possible rescue
had broken off after days
of round-the-clock negota-
tions. The move marked a

next 24 hours, two sourc-
es familiar with the talks
told The Associated Press.
They requested anonymity
because they weren't autho-
rized to speak publicly.
CIT bondholders dis-
cussed their options


Thursday in a conference
call that involved restructur-
ing firm Houlihan Lokey,
according to the sources.
Another conference call
with the largest bondhold-
ers was to be organized by
bond manager Pimco later
in the day, the sources said.
Houlihan, Lokey and Pimco
didn't return calls seeking
comment.
If CIT can improve its
liquidity, either through
debt restructuring or by
getting an injection of pri-
vate equity, that could give
it better leverage to reopen
talks with regulators. The
most likely avenue for sur-
vial would be getting per-
mission to transfer assets
to the company's bank. The
bank could then borrow
against that money at a dis-
count if the Fed allows it.
Such transfers require
approval from the Fed and
the FDIC because regu-
lators don't want banks
whose deposits are insured
to risk insolvency by bail-
ing out their parent com-
panies.


June video game sales drop sharply


By BARBARA ORTUTAY
AP Technology Writer

NEW YORK -
Squeezed by the econom-
ic downturn, U.S. retail
sales of video games
dropped sharply in June,
the largest year-over-
year decline the industry
has seen in nearly nine
years.
MarketresearcherNPD
Group said Thursday that
sales of game hardware,
software and accesso-
ries plunged 31 percent
from the same inonth last
year, to $1.17 billion. It


marked the biggest year-
over-year decline since
September 2000.
The drop "is certain-
ly going to cause some
pain and reflection in the
industry," said NPD ana-
lyst Anita Frazier in a
statement.
June was the fourth
straight month to see a
sales decline this year,
even as video game com-
panies continue to tout
their products as a cheap
form of entertainment.
Recession-battered con-
sumers are nonetheless
cutting back on spending,


and there have also been
fewer hit game launches
in recent months than in
the corresponding period
in 2008.
While retail sales have
declined, the video game
audience is continuing to
expand. But many people
are playing games online,
for free.
"The trick is to con-
tinue to figure out how to
monetize all the gaming
that is going on across
PC, mobile devices, and
video game systems';"
Frazier said.
June hardware sales


tumbled 38 percent to
$382.6 million from $617.3
million. As expected, the
Nintendo Wii was the
month's best-selling con-
sole with 361,700 units
sold, while the Nintendo
DS was the top-perform-
ing handheld gaming
device with 766,500 sold.
Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox
360 sold fewer units than
the Wii - just 240,600
- but it was the only sys-
tem to show a year-over-
year sales increase. Sony
Corp.'s PlayStation 3,
meanwhile, saw 164,700
units sold.

Economy weakens

hurricane assistance


By MICHAEL KUNZELMAN
Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS -
Extra evacuation buses.
More storm shelters. A
guide to doing hurricane
preparation on a budget.
Because of the recession,
the nation's coastal com-
munities are preparing to
*help more people evacuate
if a hurricane approaches,
especially residents who
cannot afford to escape on
their own.
"The way the economy
is, nobody is able to just
pick up and leave," said
Bryant St. Amant, a 39-year-
old oysterman in Bayou
La Batre on the Alabama
coast. "You've got to put
gasin the car and stock up
on supplies."
After Hurricane Katrina
in 2005, St. Amant's fam-
ily was temporarily home-
less and endured life in a
government-issued trailer.
The father of four isn't sure
where they would go if
another storm threatened,
but he has no interest in
reliving his Katrina ordeal.
In Louisiana, officials are
prepared to provide trans-
portation to several thou-


sand more people than the
roughly 37,000 who needed
government help eVacu-
ating ahead of Hurricane

Judge denies Visteon severance


By RANDALL CHASE
AP Business Writer

WILMINGTON, Del. - A
Delaware bankruptcy judge
on Thursday denied a request
by auto parts supplier Visteon
Corp. to approve severance
and retention plans for its non-
union employees.
In denying the proposed
severance plan, Judge
Christopher Sontchi said its
inclusion of 12 company offi-
cers violated bankruptcy law.
He also expressed concern
that there might be officers
-among the 3,300 other work-


ers who would be covered by
the plan.
Sontchi expressed similar,
concerns about the proposed
retention plan, wondering if
it included employees who
should be considered officers.
The judge did say Visteon
could submit revised plans if
it can clearly identify which
employees are officers.
"The issue is officers,"
Sontchi said. "Who is an offi-
cer? Who is not an officer, and
what does officer mean?"
Visteon attorneys argued
that the plans are needed to
ease anxiety among work-


ers concerned about losing
their jobs, and to keep key
employees from leaving the
company.
"Given the termination of
approximately l10 employees
since January 2009, the com-
mencement of these Chapter
11 cases, and the debtors'
ongoing efforts to control
costs, many of the debtors'
employees perceive a lack of
job security, potentially detract-
ing from their incentive to per-
form at maximum levels and
distracting them from their
duties," the company said in
its court filing.

Budget chief: Health care bills would raise costs


By RICARDO
ALONSO-ZALDIVAR
Associated Press

WASHINGTON -
Democrats' health care
- bills won't meet President
Barack Obama's goal of
slowing the ruinous rise of
medical costs, Congress'
budget umpire warned on
Thursday, giving weight to
critics. who say the legisla-
tion could break the bank.
The sobering assessment
from Congressional Budget
Office Director Douglas
Elmendorf came as House
Democrats pushed to pass
a partisan bill through com-
mittees, while in the Senate
a small group of lawmakers
continued to seek a deal
that could win support from
both political parties.
Senators involved in
the bipartisan talks said
.Thursday evening they
are making solid progress
toward a compromise they
claimed would hold down


ASSOCIATED PRESS
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. (from left) is joined by other House Democratic
leaders, House Majority Leader Stehy Hoyer of Maryland, Pete Stark of California, Henry
Waxman of California, Charles Rangel of New York, and John Dingell of Michigan, in a news
conference, announcing the introduction of health care legislation on Capitol Hill, Tuesday in
Washington.


costs, addressing the bud-
getaryconcerns. Butitcould
take more time to work out
difficult issues. And that
means that Obama's time-


table for floor votes in the
House and Senate before
August would slip. .
"I think it would be pru-
dent of the president to


be patient and allow us
the opportunity to work,"
said Sen. Olympia Snowe,
R-Maine, one of the law-
makers involved 'in talks


led by Finance Committee
Chairman Max Baucus, D-
Mont.
"I don't think we should
be bound by a timetable that
isn't realistic," said Snowe,
adding that a Senate vote in
September would still allow
time to finish the legislation
this fall.
Baucus said he's "quite
confident" that the group is
"making a lot of progress"
and would be ready fairly,
soon.
From the beginning of
the health care debate,
Obama has insisted that
any overhaul must "bend
the curve" of rapidly ris-
ing costs that threaten to
swamp the budgets of gov-
ernment, businesses and
families. ,
Asked by Senate Budget
Committee Chairman Kent
Conrad, D-N.D., if the evolv-
ing legislation would bend
the cost curve, the budget
director responded that
"the curve is being raised."


Man claims

to fight lion

with saw

From Associated Press

CODY, Wyo. - A man
says he used his chainsaw
to fight off a starving moun-
tain lion that attacked. him
while he was camping in the
Shoshone National Forest.
Ex-Marine Dustin Britton
of Windsor, Colo., says. he
raised the chainsaw he had
been using to cut brush
and inflicted a six- to eight-
inch gash on the 100-pound
lion's shoulder. .:.
The animal retreated,
leaving Britton with a small
puncture wound on his
forearm. Wildlife agents
later shot the lion after it
attacked a dog brought in
to track the animal. The
incident occurred Sunday
evening at a campsite
27 miles west of Cody.
Authorities say the lion
was in poor physical condi-
tion.


BRIEFS.


NASA loses
Apollo 11 video
WASHINGTON - NASA
. could put a man on the moon
but didn't have the sense to
keep the original video of the
live TV transmission.
In an embarrassing
acknowledgment, the space
agency said Thursday that it
must have erased the Apollo
11 moon footage years ago
-so that it could reuse the vid-
eotape.
But now Hollywood is com-
ing to the rescue.
The studio wizards who
restored "Casablanca" are
;digitally sharpening and
cleaning up the ghostly,
grainy footage of the moon
landing, making it even better
than what TV viewers saw
on July 20, 1969. They are
doing it by working from four
copies that NASA scrounged
from around the world. ,
"There's riotfiing bl5ig re-
ated; there's nothing being
manufactured," said NASA
senior engineer Dick Nafzger,
who is in charge of the proj-
ect. "You can now see the
'detail that's coming out."


Sotomayor speeds
to confirmation
WASHINGTON - Sonia
,'Sotomayor sped toward con-,
firmation as the nation's first
Hispanic justice Thursday,
.'-encouraged by Republican
Promises of a quick vote and
cheered on by a Democratic
senator's challenge to take
on the Supreme Court's
conservative wing when she
arrives.
"Battle out the ideas that
you believe in, because I
- have a strong hunch that
they are closer to the ones
that I would like to see adopt-
ed by the court," Sen. Arlen
Specter of Pennsylvania, a
Republican turned Democrat,
told Sotomayor.
Even two of her
Republican critics called the
55-year-old appeals court
judge's rulings "mainstream"
- noteworthy conces-
sions for President Barack
Obama's first high court
nominee.

Gates: More
troops needed
FORT DRUM, N.Y.
- The Pentagon's chief
said Thursday he could
send more U S troops to
Afghanistan this year than
,he'd initially expected and is
consideringg increasing the
number ol soldiers in the
'Army. ..
Both issues reflect'
,"demands on increasingly
T.stressed American forces
tasked with fighting two wars.
* Defense Secretary Robert
Gates' comments came dur-
ing a short visit to Fort Drum
irin upstate New York - an
S'Army post that that he said
i| has deployed more soldiers
to battle zones over the last
' 20 years than any other unit.
Two Fort Drum brigades are
*, headed to Iraq later this year,
". and a third is currently in
L Afghanistan.
-7 Asked about Afghanistan
by one soldier, Gates said,
"I think there will not be a


significant increase in troop
levels in Afghanistan beyond
the 68,000, at least probably,
through the end of the year.
Maybe some increase, but
not a lot."

House Dems deny
GOP debate
WASHINGTON - In their
zeal to protect their members
from politically hazardous
votes on issues such as
gay marriage and gun con-
trol, Democrats running the
House of Representatives
are taking extraordinary steps
to muzzle Republicans in this
summer's debates on spend-
ing bills.
At issue are 12 bills total-
ing more than-$1.2 trillion in
annual appropriations bills
for funding most government
programs - usually lovj-pro-
file legislation inal typieealy--
dominales Ine. wor of the .
House in June and July. For
decades, those bills have
come to the floor under: an
open process that allows,
any member to try to amend
them. Often those amend-
ments are an effort to change
government policy by adding
or subtracting money for car-
rying it out.

FHSAA

follies
T he Florida
High School
Athletic
Association
does an
excellent job for its
member schools and
the prep athletes in the
state.
There are times when
its antenna is just not
working.
The most recent
was its decision to cut
the number of sports
contest 20 percent for
varsity and 40 percent
for other levels for the
2010-11 school year. It
was designed to save
money for the schools,
a move supported by
Columbia County School
Superintendent Mike
Millikin.
When the decision
came down, the one
sport exempted was
football which kept its
varsity and junior varsity
games.
Talk about a target.
Throwing competitive
cheerleading in with
football didn't calm the :
storm.
The FHSAA
immediately took a
bulls-eye hit when a
Title IX suit was filed by
a group of parents for
violation of gender equity.
The FHSAA quickly
backed off,.with its
board of directors voting
15-0 to rescind the new
policy. The FHSAA said
the reversal was to save
member schools the
potential cost of litigation.
This did not sit well
with Nancy Hogshead-
Makar, a person
representing the
group of parents in the
lawsuit according to an
Associated Press report.
"This needs to be a
teachable moment,"
Hogshead-Maker said.
'The only thing that
has made a difference
for them is a lawsuit So
because of that, we need
to make sure that the
judge comes in and still
has jurisdiction dyer the
case. We'll make sure
that they don't, in the
future, go and change
their mind again."
Title IX has benefited
a lot of girls and this
time it dragged some
boys sports along with it.
Because of it, there are
many mamas and daddies
who have been able to
enjoy school sports with
their daughters.
" 'Why equal play for
S our daughters is treated
as a luxury and one of
the first things to be
suspended during down
economic times baffles
me," Women's Sports
Foundation CEO Karen
Durkin said in a release.
, While football does
have more participants
than any other sport, the
exemption was sure to
bring trouble.,
"I think the hearts of
the board and staff were
pure," FHSAA executive
director Roger Dearing
said in the AP story.
Tone deaf, too.

steps down


CHS baseball
coach chooses
family time.

By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter. corn
Coach Andy Bennett
is stepping down' from
Columbia High baseball to
work with another group
of kids - sons Drew and
Case.
"All coaches sacrifice a lot
of time," Bennett said. "Any
high school coach has got
to have an unselfish type of
family and I have had that.
It is time to spend that time
being a good father and a
good husband and having a
good family."
Bennett's and wife
Veronica's children are
Drew, 40, and Case, 21/2.
Bennett took the summer
off from baseball to spend
with his family and wrestle


with the decision he finally
made this week.
"I took time away to see
what was best for my fam-
ily," Bennett said. "I missed
baseball, but the thing that
kept popping into my head
was I don't want to regret
not seeing my kids grow
up. I didn't think it was fair.
I can't do both of them to
the extreme I want to."
Dedication and hard
work are words often used
to describe Bennett. He
played football and baseball
at Columbia, graduating in
1995. He walked on at Lake
City Community College
and earned a baseball schol-
arship. After two years with
the Timberwolves, Bennett
played ball at Faulkner
University.
"With baseball there is
summer ball, lifting and
conditioning in the fall, and
then you come in in January
and play 4-5 months,"
Bennett said. "It was not

camp plans to host boys .

over a three day camp
period at absolutely no

a sense of responsibility
Carter wanted to give back
to the community.
"It's not about meeting

said. "The first-day was

importance of school,

Carter's biggest
message was that no

possible to achieve any

"You never know how

NASCAR: Mayfield again


tests positive for meth


By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press

Jeremy Mayfield tested
positive again for metham-
phetamine, NASCAR said,
igniting another round of
denials from the driver,
who angrily accused the
sanctioning body of paying
his stepmother to lie about
his alleged past drug use.
The positive result from
a July 6 random test was
included in a U.S. District
Court filing Wednesday
that asked the federal judge
who lifted Mayfield's drug
suspension to reinstate the
ban. The filing included an
affidavit from Mayfield's
stepmother, Lisa, who said
she witnessed the driver
using methamphetamine at
least 30 times over seven
years.
"I don't trust anything
NASCAR does, anything
Dr. David Black does, never
have, never will," Mayfield
told The Associated Press in
a phone interview. Black
is the administrator for
NASCAR's drug-testing
program.
"And they picked the
wrong woman to use against
me because that (expletive)
is trash and has got nothing
on me but lies."
According to documents,
Lisa Mayfield said she first
saw the driver use meth
in 1998 at a race shop in
Mooresville, N.C. She said
Mayfield cooked his own
drugs until .the ingredi-
ent pseudoephedrine was
taken off the shelves and
it became too difficult for
Mayfield to obtain the
ingredients. She said her
stepson then began to pur-
chase meth from others.
"Between 1998 and 2005,
I am personally aware that
Jeremy used methamphet-
amines often," she said in
her affidavit. "I was con-
cerned about his heavy
use and talked to his father
about it. I saw Jeremy use
methamphetamine by snort-
ing it up his nose at least 30
times during the 7 years
I was around him. Jeremy
used methamphetamine
not only in my presence,

In this May 26, 2005, file-photo, Jeremy Mayfield sits in

but also when we were both
in the presence of others."
Mayfield contested his
stepmother's account.
"She's tried everything
she can do to get money out
of me. I won't help her, so I
guess she found a way to
get money from NASCAR
by giving them an affidavit
full of lies," he said.
Mayfield was suspended
May 9 for failing a random
drug test conducted eight
days earlier. NASCAR later
said he tested positive for
methamphetamine.
He sued, and U.S. District
Court Judge Graham
Mullen issued an injunction
July 1 that allowed Mayfield
to return to competition.
Mullen based his decision
on Mayfield's argument that
the testing system is flawed

likelihood of a false posi-
tive. He also gave NASCAR
the right to test Mayfield at
any time.
NASCAR did just that five
days later at Mayfield's home
and said in its filings that
the "A" sample had levels
of methamphetamine consis-
tent with habitual users who
consume high doses.
"My only comment is
that's their result," Mayfield
attorney John Buric said.
"But what I want you to
keep in mind is that test was
performed by the defen-
dants in the case. Aegis
Laboratories and Dr. Black
are defendants in this case.
I don't know if NASCAR
has the right to ask the
defendant to test Jeremy's
urine sample. It ought to
be done independently, but
NASCAR didn't do that."

Favre steps up workouts ' .*


By CHRIS TALBOTT
Associated Press

HATTIESBURG, Miss.
- Brett Favre acknowl-
edged he's "running out
of time" to decide whether
he'll play for the Minnesota
Vikings this season.
The quarterback told
The Associated Press on
Wednesday that he'll give
the Vikings an answer on
whether he'll play by the
July 30 start of training
camp. Favre has been work-
ing out with the Oak Grove
High School football team
three. days a week all sum-
mer, but added a Sunday
workout this week.
"There's two weeks left
- and I'm doing everything
I can," Favre said. "I was
down here Sunday morn-
ing working out. I'm trying
to get everything to where
I feel 100 percent when I
go in. I can't go in any less.
When you're 39 years old,
it's hard enough. But it's
getting there."
The former Packers and
Jets quarterback said sur-
gery to repair a biceps ten-


don in his throwing arm was
successful and that he has
enough velocity to return to
the NFL. He's just not sure
whether that means he'll
be able to compete for an
entire season.
"I felt like going to New
York last year that I still
had it," Favre said. "I didn't
know my arm was hurt at
the time. So that's what I
try to get across to people.
I had that fixed, the surgery
to fix that, so I'm trying
to make sure that if I go
back that part is completely
resolved."
It sure looked like it
Wednesday morning, when
a jovial Favre hit a variety
of passes to high school
and college wide receivers.
He was crisp on short tim-
ing passes and was hitting
receivers in the end zone
from about 50 yards away.
Favre attempted a few
deep passes off bootlegs
and usually hit his targets
in stride.
Favre's spirals held true
and he proved he still has
plenty of zip when he tossed
a deep pass to a college


receiver who dropped by
to work out. The pass split
the receiver's hands and hit
him in the face.
"He's a senior from
Southeastern Louisiana, so
I put a little more on it,"
Favre said with a smile.
Favre said if the arm
strength wasn't there, he
wouldn't be making a bid to
return for his 19th season
in the league. I
"I don't think Minnesota
would even consider it if I
didn't have it," Favre said.
"Second of all, I wouldn't
even think about it if I didn't
have it. Now, having it here
and having in on the field
on Sunday is two differ-
ent things, I know that for
a fact. I know what it takes
to play on Sunday and I still
believe I have that."
Favre said his hesitation
is more about what those
watching him practice
might not see.
He used a golfing anal-
ogy to explain his situation.
What if, he asked, Tiger
Woods came back and
found he didn't have the
same game?


"He goes out and hits a 2
iron and he thinks it will go
the normal distance it has
all his life, then all of a sud-
den it's 13 yards short, and
he says, 'I don't know why
that is because everything
felt perfect,' so that's what I
have to get through," Favre
said.
"If you're throwing and
it's a little off and you have
a little pain, it's a little bit
understandable. If there's
no pain and there's no
excuse, that's where you've
got a problem. So I want
to go out and have one of
those days throwing and
then have auiother where all
of those throws you make,
every warmup throw you
make or just in general,
feels perfect."
Favre was released by
the Jets earlier this year,
clearing the way for him
to sign with any team will-
ing to take him. Dr. James
Andrews performed sur-
gery May 22 to address
the injured biceps tendon,
which hampered Favre
down the stretch last
season.

Phelps, Tebow

win big at ESPYs


Associated Press

LOS ANGELES -
Michael Phelps is still reap-
ing rewards for his record
haul of eight gold medals at
the Beijing Olympics.
He won a leading five
ESPY Awards, including
male athlete of the year,
ending the five-year reign of
Tiger Woods, who earned
his record 22nd trophy
Wednesday night.
The 14-time Olympic gold
medalist also collected tro-
phies for record-breaking
performance, champion-
ship performance, and male
Olympian while sharing the
best moment award as part
of the victorious 400-meter
freestyle swimming relay at
the Beijing Games.
"This all started with a
dream when I was a kid to
do something no else has
done before," Phelps said
on stage. "I was able to do
it in such an amazing year
in sports."
Olympic all-around gym-
nastics champion Nastia
Liukin won female athlete of
the year. The show honor-
ing the previous year's top
athletes, events and teams
airs Sunday on ESPN.
Phelps' only other ESPY
came in 2005, when he was
chosen male Olympian follow-
ing his haul of six gold medals
at the 2004 Athens Games.
He wasn't the only
swimmer honored. Dara
Torres, who at 41 won
three silver medals in her
fifth Olympics, received
the comeback award. She
asked for a chair to sit on


backstage to rest her ailing
left knee that will require
surgery later this summer.
"At my age, it's really
hard to say I'm going to do
this in three years," Torres
said backstage. "I love rac-
ing the youngsters, but I
don't really know how my
body will hold up."
The University of Florida
had two winners with
Quarterback Tim Tebow
and incoming freshman
wide receiver Andre Debose
each taking home an ESPY
Award. Tebow was named
Best Male College Athlete,,
while Debose was recog-
nized for the Under'Armour
All-America moment.
Tebow edged out Sam
Bradford (Oklahoma, foot-
ball), Matt Gilroy (Boston
University, hockey), Blake
Griffin (Oklahoma, basket-
ball) and Stephen Strasburg
(San Diego State, baseball)
to become the only two-time
winner of the Best Male
College Athlete award, as
he also received the recog-
nition in 2008.
"It truly is an honor to
even be invited to an event,
like the ESPYs and be able
to be in the same room
with many athletes that I
have the utmost respect
for," said Tebow. "And then
to be named the Best Male
College Athlete, which was
decided by the fans makes
this night even more mem-
orable. I want to thank my
teammates and coaches,
but a special thank you
goes out to the entire Gator
Nation, the best fans in the
country."

announcing he would
race again this year,
expects some of the Tour
contenders to make their
move on Friday.
"You have to watch all
the rivals, even someone
like (Denis) Menchov,"
Armstrong said of the
Giro d'Italia winner.
"Some might say he is five
or six minutes behind and
his race is finished, but
if he gains back time, he
has the Alps, and then if
he is close enough on the
(Mont) Ventoux, he could
present a problem."
Armstrong briefly
looked to be in trouble
after about 37 miles on
Thursday, when he had to
pull over to let his Astana
team repair a puncture in
his back wheel.
But after a few
moments, four of
Armstrong's teammates
helped him catch up with
the main pack again.

program and it will con-
tinue to grow."
Filling the position will
begin with advertising.
"It is a tough loss for us,"
Assistant Principal Donnie
Harrison said. "Andy has
done a great job here. We
don't have a whole lot of
problems with the pro-
gram. It is successful with
a good booster club and
everybody is pretty happy.
I told Andy we would not
be replacing him, just fill-
ing the position."
Benriett thanked this
year's staff - J.T. Clark,
Richard Collins, Jonathan
Ulsh and Joey Edge -
and the assistant coaches
that have gone before.
Bennett said it was a
special honor to have his
LCCC coach, Tom Clark,
in the dugout this season.
Bennett thanked oth-
ers including the admin-
istration at Columbia and
Westside Elementary,


where he will continue to
teach PE.
"The Dugout Club does
an outstanding job and
I want to thank all the .
members," Bennett said.
'Thanks to all the busi-
nesses that have support-
ed Columbia High sports
and baseball. Very few
times we ever heard 'no.'
That's what makes Lake
City what it is. The people
bleed purple and gold and
they like to see Columbia
High do well."
Now, Bennett too
will bleed from the
bleachers.
"Family, school, base-
ball have always come in
that order and the players
know that," Bennett said.
"It is my chance to be a
dad,/to be with my family
and watch my two boys do
what they want to do.
'"I don't know what that
is, but I don't want to miss
it."

back to the community.
"I'm proud to be here
to help with the camp,"
Anderson said.
"We want to show that
anything is possible. With
a little hard work, that's all
it takes to accomplish your
goals."
The camp will run
through Saturday, and
Carter promised to those
in attendance to give an
outstanding camp back to
the community.
'We will keep everyone.
good and hydrated," Carter
said. "We'll treat them
like they are ours. We'll
try to teach them basic
football drills, but it's just
a chance to interact with
the community. They've
heard of me and watched
me play, but now they'll get
a chance to be around me.
It won't be like a military
camp. We want them to
have fun and just learn the
basics of football."

ITiger takes a detour at Turnberry


....." "- ; * - " .,


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Tiger Woods of the U.S. walks to the 17th green during the
opening round of the British Open Golf Championship, at the
Turnberry golf course in Scotland on Thursday.


By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press

TURNBERRY, Scotland
- For a course that was
easy as it can be, Tiger
Woods sure made it hard
on himself:
Woods produced a pedes-
trian round Thursday in
surprisingly calm condi-
tions at Turnberry, making
only three birdies and far
more mistakes. He wound
up with a 1-over 71, the
first time since 2003 that
he failed to .break par in
the opening round of the
British Open.
"Realistically, I probably
should have shot about
1- or 2-under par today,"
Woods said. "But I made a
few mistakes.".
It was reminiscent of the
opening round at Bethpage
Black in the U.S. Open,
when Woods battled to get
back to even par until drop-
ping four shots on the last


OPEN: Watson one back
Continued From Page 1B CL


Still, it was Watson, the
59-year-old, five-time Open
champion, who maintained
the lead role - if only for
a day.
"What a legend," Jimenez
said.
Watson had been practic-
ing well all week, and got
an extra boost a day ear-
lier when Barbara Nicklaus
sent a text wishing him
good luck.
"I texted her back and
said, "You know, we real-
ly miss you over here,"'
Watson said. "And I really
meant it. It's not the same
without Jack playing in the
tournament."
Nicklaus played his final
British Open at St. Andrews
in 2005 and faded into retire-
ment. But the guy who beat
him at Turnberry in '77 -
with a 65 on the final day,
no less - still has a few
shots left.
Watson kept the ball in
the fairway, rolled in five
birdies and bailed himself
out the few times he got
into trouble, including a
testy 6-footer at the final
hole to preserve a bogey-
free round.
"Not bad for an almost
60-year-old," said -Watson,
who turns that age in
September.
. His score was matched
by Ben Curtis, the surprise-
winner of the 2003 Open,
and Japanese Tour regu-
lar Kenichi Kuboya, who
surged into contention after-
' most of the fans had headed
for the pubs with a birdie-
birdie-eagle-birdie finish.
Tiger Woods didn't have
nearly as much fun. On a
day for going low along
the Scottish coast - it was
sunny until early evening,
with little breeze off the
Irish Sea - the world's No.
1 player struggled to a 71
:with one wayward shot after
another. He even dunked
his ball in Wilson's Burn,
which led to the last of his
four bogeys at No. 16. \
"I certainly made a few
mistakes out there," said
Woods, facing the largest
- 18-hole deficit of his Open
career. "Realistically, I prob-
ably should have shot about
1- or 2-under par."
When the round ended,
SWoods headed back to
the range to work on. his
swing, which looked dow0i-
right ugly with his right
hand flying off the club.
His first signs of frustration
emerged at No. 3, when he
took an angry swipe and
mumbled something under
his breath. By the time the
day was done, he had angri-
ly tossed away his clubs
several times. ,
Six years ago, Curtis was
virtually unknown except to
family and friends when he
won the claret jug on his
first try. He missed the cut
on his next three attempts,
but has finished in the top
10 at the Open the last two
years. Now, he's confident
of making a run at another
Open championship.
"You don't win it once
and not be able to do it


again," he said. "The last
couple of years have been
good for me, and this week
I got off to a good start."
Curtis overcame a pair of
bogeys with an eagle at the
par-5 seventh and birdies
on four of his last six holes.
He finished with a routine
two-putt par at No. 18, walk-
ing off tied for the top spot.
Golf's oldest major keeps
bringing out the best in
the old-timers. Last year,
Greg Norman was 53 when
he held the 54-hole lead at
Birkdale, only to fade on
the final day.
Jimenez is no spring
chicken, either, but at age
45 he beat his previous low
score in the Open by three
strokes and just missed the
major championship record.
The ponytailed, cigar-puff-
ing Spaniard, known as "the
Mechanic," finished with a
flourish, making birdies
on the final two holes -
including a 66-footer from
the edge of the green with
his last putt of the day.
Even John Daly man-
aged to shoot a 68, his best
round since winning the
claret jug at St. Andrews
in 1995. Adorned in an eye-
catching, lime-green outfit,
he sure played much better
than a year ago, when he
shot an amateurish 80-89 at
Birkdale.
Jimenez was encouraged
from the moment he woke
up.
"You look at the sea, and
it looked like a pond.- so
nice, so calm," he said. "You
can't ask for a better day.
No wind, no nothing, and it
took care of me."
There's still three. rounds
to go, and the weather isn't
like to stay this way through
Sunday. Indeed, the. second-
round forecast called for a
chance of patchy rain, with the
wind gusting up to 30 mph.
Now that sounds more
like a British Open.
Major championship golf
is filled with opening-day
leaders who fell out of con-
tention by the weekend.
Watson would be by the
far the oldest Open cham-
pion, a distinction held by
Old Tom Morris (now that's
an appropriate nickname),
who was 46 when he won
the claret jug for the final
time in 1867.
Watson posted his low-
est score in the tournament
since a second-round 65
in 1994 - the last time it
was held at Turnberry. But
this isn't the first time he's
come up with some open-
ing-day magic since joining
the senior circuit.
At the 2003 U.S. Open,
Watson led after the first
round at Olympia Fields
with ailing Bruce Edwards
on the bag. The tears flowed
freely after Watson shot a
65; his longtime caddie died
less than a year later from
Lou Gehrig's Disease.
This week, Watson ha#,@
been reminded of a more
pleasant experience - his
showdown with Nicklaus
when the British Open first
came to historic Turnberry.


four holes, and never quite
recovering.
There were a few
exceptions.
The . first round at
Bethpage took two days to
complete because of rain.
This took just under five
hours in a mixture of sun
and clouds, a fine summer
day along the Ayrshire
coast.
And unlike'the U.S. Open,
Woods was never too far
from the leaders until it got
away from him at the end.
He missed the 13th
green, the ball stopped a
yard in front of gorse bush,
leaving Woods just enough
room to pitch up the slope
to 4 feet to save par and stay
1 under. His 2-iron on the
14th sailed right into rough
so deep that he did well to
hammer a sand wedge out
to the fairway, advancing it
some 80 yards. From there,
his high wedge checked a
few feet from the hole for


2009 Accord IX
PMW,P/L, Cruise, Tilt, AC, Front & Side Airbags, Loaded


another timely save.
With everyone around
him making birdies, Woods
was celebrating par.
But not for long.
He came up short on the
par-5 15th, leaving himself
an awkward angle over
a slope. His chip was too
strong, and he missed a
12-foot par putt. From the
fairway on the 16th, he was
aiming 10 feet left of the
flag and hit it 10 feet to the
right. It bounded down the
shaved mound and into the
burn, and he did well to
make only a bogey.
Then came the par-5
17th, another tee shot to
the right. Even with a good
break - his ball sat up
nicely only trampled grass
- he popped up a 3-wood
and cursed himself twice
for the mistake. Again, the
world's No. 1 player had to
rely on all his muscle to get
out of the rough onto the
green, some 70 feet away,


CE


wr - w


to make par.
By the end of the day, he
was the only player in his
group who failed to break
par.
Lee Westwood opened
with three straight birdies,
reached 4 under, and shot 68.
Ryo Ishikawa, the 17-year-
old from Japan, hit driver on
just about every hole and
finished strong for a 68.
Everywhere he looked,
there was a leaderboard
showing several morning
scores under par, including
Tom Watson at 65.
He was long gone when
Miguel Angel Jimenez took
the lead at 64. The seven-shot
deficit is the largest Woods
has ever faced in the first
round of the British Open.
'This golf, course, cer-
tainly you could shoot a
good round today," Woods
said. "You saw a lot of guys
at basically 3-, 4-, 5-under
par. And that's what you
could do out there today."

DEAR ABBY


Woman is curious to know

details of beau's divorce


DEAR ABBY: I have re-
cently started seeing a won-
derful man who is divorced.
It doesn't bother me. I know
we all make mistakes. My
friends are telling me I need
to find out why his marriage
ended, because it might sig-
nal potential problems to
watch out for. I understand
their logic.
The problem is, I don't
want to appear nosy and, of
course, I would be hearing
only one side of the story. So
should I ask him or not - and
if so, when and how? - IN-
QUIRING MINDS NEED
TO KNOW
DEAR INQUIRING: I
see no harm in asking now.
The perfect time to have
done it was when he told you
he was divorced. You don't
have to be heavy-handed
about it. Treat him to - or
cook him - a nice dinner and
afterward say, "So tell me
how come a gorgeous, in-
telligent man like you is di-
vorced. Your ex must have
been out of her mind to let
you go." Then shut up and
listen.
DEAR ABBY: Our
daughter's landlady - I'll
call her Martha - has be-
come very close to our fam-
ily. Martha and her husband
are included in most of our
family's social events.
My problem is Martha is
allergic to garlic and cannot

eat anything cooked with it.
Abby, we are Italian. We
grew up eating garlic and
cook just about everything
with it. My husband and I
are locking horns over the
fact that I feel it's an impo-
sition to be expected to ac-
commodate one person by
omitting a key ingredient in
a dish. When you're cooking
for a lot of people who are ac-
customed to the way certain
foods are prepared, I feel it
is inconsiderate for someone
to expect me to,leave an in-
gredient out. What do you
think? - MAMA "MIA" IN
N.Y.
DEAR MAMA "MIA":
I think you should prepare
a garlic-free extra dish for
Martha - something not too
difficult to make, like a salad
- or invite Martha over less
often.
DEAR ABBY: How does
a person find direction? Ca-
reer counselors have told
me that I need "direction,"
but they never tell me how
to go about getting it.
I'm in my late 20s with


two degrees and no spe-
cific job skills. I have had a
few crummy jobs. I'm not
afraid of hard work, but I
don't know .what sort of job
I should be seeking.
I spent 10 years trying
the touchy-feely "just fol-
low your dreams" approach.
Well, my dreams are to be
financially independent and
have a meaningful personal
and intellectual life!
Is there another ap-
proach? How do I find a job
that fits me? Perfect would
be great, but at this point,
I'm just shooting for good
enough. - UNDIRECTED
IN NEW JERSEY
DEAR UNDIRECTED:
The career counselors you
consulted should have given
you enough direction that
it stimulated your think-
ing about ways to apply the
knowledge you have worked
so hard to earn. With their
help you should have been
able to identify some area of
the profession you prepared
for that would enable you to
be financially independent.
Because that didn't happen,
I recommend you look fur-
ther for career counseling
because it appears the ones
you consulted did a poor
job.

Angeles, CA 90069.

do best. *****
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
