TALLAHASSEE -I
Despite the content of a let-
ter bearing his signature,
Gov. Charlie Crist does not
want to share an anti-Semitic
movie with all Floridians.
Crist's office sent a letter
dated June 30 and bearing
the governor's signature
that thanked John Ubele of
Pasco County for providing
the governor with a DVD of
"Jud Suss." The Nazi-pro-
duced film is recognized as
one of history's most incen-
diary.
In closing a brief thank-
you note, Crist praised
Ubele's thoughtfulness
and generosity and said he
would be delighted to share
the DVD with the people of
Florida.
"I was surprised consid-
ering the stigma that has
been associated with the
film," Ubele said Friday in
an exchange of e-mails with
The Associated Press. "I was
even more surprised when
I looked at the signature
because from what I can tell
it looks real."
Ubele said the signature
appeared to be signed by a

LIVE OAK - Barbecue
has a way of delighting the
senses and making an oth-
erwise competitive event
seem like a family reunion.
Friday, the inaugural
Smokin' On the Suwannee
Barbecue Festival kicked-
off with at the Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park,
bringing in competitive
cooking barbecue teams
from around the region, as
well as teams from around
the southeastern portion of
the United States..
Apparently, when mixing
the events of a barbecue-
cooking contest with one of
the most recognized music
venues in the area, a, suc-
cessful event is destined to
be spawned. To little sur-


prise, hundreds of people
arrived the first day of the
inaugural cooking contest
and Future Farmers of
America fundraiser.
"The best part is this
brings, something to the
community," said event
organizer. Damon Wooley.
"We hope to raise money
for the FFA. I thank the
sponsors that did come.
on board because they've
really helped. Talking to
the teams, they've said
this is the best first-year
event they've ever been to.
Without the cook teams
this wouldn't be possible.
"I'm expecting a pretty
decent turnout. We'll have
a pretty good crowd, espe-
cially for a first year event.
I'm happy with.the way this
is turning out. We haven't
run into any problems.

Paramedics work
six to seven hours
in intense heat.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Entering a dark, smoky
room as a fire grows is not
the normal protocol for an
EMS technician.
However, for Columbia
County EMS technicians,
very few things are com-
mon protocol these days
as the Columbia County
Fire Department and
EMS services merge into
the Columbia County Fire
Rescue Department.


Mostof the dayThursday,
paramedics under the
newly merged department
trained on how to attack
fires as firefighters.
Nine students and five
instructors took part in
the training session which
took place at the old boy's
club on Lake Jeffery Road
in metal trailers fashioned
into a live fire simulator.
"We had a representa-
tive from the State Fire
Marshal's Office to evalu-
ate and make sure our plans
(for,the live fire simulator)
and the job was done like it
was supposed to be accord-
ing to state standards,"
said Columbia County Fire

Suit malfunctions

battery change.
By MARCIA DUNN

CAPE CANAVERAL
- Astronauts outfitted the
international space sta-
tion with fresh batteries
in an extra-long spacewalk
Friday, moving slowly and
even loitering at times to
avoid a repeat of the suit
trouble' that cut short the
previous outing.
Despite their dawdling
pace, Christopher Cassidy
and Thomas Marshburn
managed to install all four
new batteries..
For the second spacewalk
in a row, Cassidy ended up
with rising carbon dioxide
levels in his suit. But the
problem did not crop up
until the battery work was
complete, toward the entl
of what turned out to be
a seven-hour, 12-minute
spacewalk.
Before the spacewalk,
Mission Control had
requested Cassidy and
Marshburn to take their
time heading out to the far
end of the space station,
where the critical battery
changes awaited them.
It was difficult dealing
with all the stiff bolts, and

'Twilight' rules Comic Con, attracts thousands


SAN DIEGO

Most camped out
overnight. Some
spent two nights out-
side the San Diego
Convention Center.
They wore homemade T-shirts,
made friends with fellow fans and
talked about their allegiance to Team
Edward or Team Jacob.
They are the 'Twilight" fangirls,
and they came to Comic Con by the
thousands to see the movie's stars in
person at a panel Thursday for the
film's sequel.
Director Chris Weitz was joined
by Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner,
Kristen Stewart and Ashley Greene.
High-pitched screams drowned out
the introductions.
Those same shrill screams (of joy)
also threatened to overwhelm the
dialogue during the clips filmmakers
showed.
- The first showed Jacob (Lautner),
teaching Bella Swan (Stewart) how
to ride a motorcycle, but she's dis-
tracted by visions of the vampire
Edward (Pattinson) with whom she
fell in love. She crashes, and Jacob
sheds his T-shirt and uses it to
soothe her wound, provoking more
fangirl screams. Lautner famously
gained more than 20 pounds of mus-
cle for the role.

Rogen unveils 'Green
Hornet' car at Comic Con
SAN DIEGO - Seth Rogen
arrived at Comic Con with a sweet
ride.
The "Funny People" actor stopped
by the pop-culture convention's show
floor Wednesday to unveil the Black
Beauty, a modified 1965 Chrysler
Crown Imperial he'll drive in "The
Green Hornet." Rogen, with writing
partner Evan Goldberg, wrote the
script to the upcoming big-screen
relaunch of the comic book and TV
show about a masked crime-fighter.
The vehicle is an homage to the
Black Beauty driven by Van Williams
in the original series. Rogen said
the car's weapons - which include
rockets, mini-guns and a "big flame-


thrower" - were upgraded for the
film to make them more powerful.

Weapons charges
dropped against Williams
NEW YORK - Manhattan pros-
ecutors say gun charges against,
.comedian and rapper Katt Williams
have been dropped.
A spokeswoman
for the district attor-"
ney said prosecutors
moved Thursday
to have the case
dismissed because
they "can't prove the
charges beyond a Williams
reasonable doubt"
Williams, who's 37, was arrested
in November when police pulled
over a Cadillac Escalade SUV and
a Dodge minibus belonging to him.
Police said two guns were in one
vehicle and one in the other.

, The governor's office,
however, said it was an
embarrassing mistake.
"We are NOT sharing
the DVD with the people of
Florida," said Sterling Ivey,
the governor's press secre-
tary. "The governor does
not support this view. The
letter was sent out prior to
us reviewing the DVD that
was sent."
The 1940 film was pro-
duced by the Nazi propa-
ganda arm and was a great
success in Germany and
abroad, although it was
banned in Sweden in 1941
and has never been shown
in that country.
Within the Third Reich,
"Jud Suss" was the No. 1


film of the 1939-1940 sea-
son when it was seen by
more than 20 million peo-
ple. Anti-Jewish violence
was reported after its pro-
jection in Marseille, France,
for one example.
Ubele, who ran unsuc-
cessfully for the state
Legislature, is the opera-
tions manager of a group
called the Nationalist
Coalition that promotes
"white activism."
On its Web site, the orga-
nization says it is working
to create the relationships
to lay a foundation for the
white community neces-
sary to "do whatever is
necessary to achieve White
living space and to keep it
White."

plugged in new ones.
The last time Cassidy
went out, on Wednesday,
he was so gung-ho and
moved so fast that the air-


cleansing canister in his
suit could not keep up.
That resulted in rising
carbon dioxide levels that
forced an early end to the
spacewalk.

make sure


they get the


appropriate breaks and
rest.
"This is part of their
Firefighter I curriculum
and they have to have
a live fire training exer-
cise," he said. "This is an
EMS group that has gone
to fire college and going
through their Firefighter
II program. This is part of
the Firefighter I program
to get them ready for the
next step."
The training was
designed for the students
to demonstrate search
and rescue efforts and to
demonstrate types of fire
attacks including direct
and indirect attacks and


exiting skills.
"Once they graduate,
they'll be actual certified
firefighters and they'll fall
under whatever job descrip-
tion they're assigned,"
Atkinson said. "If we
decide they're needed on
the rescue side, they'll
stay rescue and if decided
they're needed on the fire
side, they'll be assigned to
fire or a combination of
the two. This gives us an
opportunity for dual roles
on different scenes. This is
definitely going to help us
with response and having
extra personnel for scene
safety, scene management
and it also helps with the
ISO."

Henry Bechem III, of Darien, Ga., checks on a Boston buck and beef brisket. Bechem, who is the owner and main chef of
Smokey Joe's BBQ, says the best way to cook a brisket is with a dry rub and a long and slow cook time to create a 'good,
dark bark to lock in all the flavor.'

OTHER
OPINION


Antibiotic

sound, safe

." congress should pass
proposed legislation
that would strongly
regulate what has
become almost
indiscriminate use of antibiotics
in healthy chickens, pigs and
cattle not to fight disease, but
to promote the animals' growth.
We urge Rep. Jeff Miller
and Sens. Bill Nelson and Mel
Martinez to get behind it
Medical officials fear that
widespread use of antibiotics in
animals consumed by humans
including many classes of the
drugs considered important
for fighting disease in people
is contributing to the alarming
rise of antibiotic-resistant infec-
tions.
How widespread is the use?
According to a report in The
New York Times, up to 70 per-
cent of all antibiotics consumed
in the United States are fed to
animals that end up as food on
our plates.
Today, increasing numbers of
serious infections respond only
to the most powerful antibiot-
ics, or combinations of them.
They represent the last
medical stand against these
infections, which can rage
uncontrollably without effective
drugs.
The legislation would ban the
use in animals of seven classes
of antibiotics considered impor-
tant to human health. And it
would require that their use
be restricted primarily to fight-
ing actual diseases, along with
selected preventive uses, and
that they be used only under
supervision of a veterinarian.
Opponents contend there
isn't enough proof to link wide-
spread use of antibiotics on
animals to the increase in drug-
resistant infections. It reminds
us of the decades of arguments
by tobacco companies against
regulation of smoking.
And we understand the farm
lobby's opposition to control-
ling use of antibiotics.
There's no question that it
makes food cheaper, and boosts
profits.
But while cheaper food is
welcomed by consumers, it is
not good public health policy to
ignore the real costs of using
powerful medicines to hold
down costs when the associated
health risk could cost those
same consumers far more.

Teaching is a calling, not a profession


The apostle James
writes, "Not many
of you should pre-
sume to be teachers,
because you know
that we who teach should be
judged more strictly. We all
stumble in many ways. If any-
one is never at fault in what
they say, the same is a perfect
person, able to keep their whole
body in check" (James 3:1-2
with my modifications).
To be a teacher is a great call-
ing. It is not enough to simply
know things or have a mind
full of information. Teaching is
a calling, not a profession. The
power you exercise in teaching
others will become as much
a part of their life as it is to
the depth of your own calling.
Money is not involved in the
process. The fact that teachers
are underpaid is not involved
in the basic motive of teaching.
One must be born to so live as
to motivate' others. Teaching is
communicating and motivating.
It isn't good enough to begin
teaching or to have tenure. It is
good enough to lead, to inspire,
to share your life with others.
Servants last. People who just
look for a job - don't.
On Aug. 8, a special lady will
graduate from the University
of Central Florida in Orlando.
She is unique in her desire to
"become a teacher." She has
struggled and fought her way
through to reach the goal of
"becoming a teacher."
She was a leap-year baby in
1980. About the age of three she
began "walking on her tiptoes."
When her walking did not cor-
rect itself, the doctor discovered
the problem - muscular dystro-
phy. Surgeries followed - one
to correct her spine, more on
her legs.
While the family was vacat-
ing in the Carolinas, she had
a severe case of pneumonia
and had to be airlifted back to
Orlando for treatment. Only
those with severe breathing
problems can understand the
struggle. Her desire to be a
teacher was her calling. After
high school she began to pur-
sue a college degree in educa-

tion. She struggled through
the first few years of university,
pushing herself to keep pace as
her body began to challenge her
further. She never wanted to be
seen as "different."
James exhorts, "Who is wise
and understanding among you?
Let them show it by their good
life, by deeds done in the humil-
ity that comes from wisdom"
(James 3:13).
To keep pace she first used
a "walker" to get about. Finally,
her breathing difficulties so
intensified she required oxygen
(24/7) and liecame "wedded"
to a wheelchair. This was to
become the hardest test sof all
because she did not have a vehi-
cle to accommodate her chair.
As hard as it was, she had to
stop attending classes and was
stranded in her apartment. She
took some classes online and
more than a year passed before
she was blessed with a van, fit-
ted with hand controls.
The daily struggle - the
struggle to be back on campus,
the daily routines would be just
too much for some to continue.
But she did continue and now
she will graduate.

Maureen's story is a lesson in
determination, in setting goals,
in the deep desire to share life
with others. As she graduates
she could say, "Never give up
- even Moses was a 'basket'
case."
Her life reminds me of the
story of the youngster who
wanted to buy a puppy. He
offered the owner all he had in
his pocket: $1.35.
These puppies were special
- pedigree, and brought a pre-
mium price, he was told. While
this was being explained to the
youngster, the "mama dog"
came out to see what was going
on. Behind her were four of her
litter, but one more appeared.
This one was obviously crippled.
The boy exclaimed, "I want to
buy that one."
The owner thought, "Why
not, we were scheduled to put
him down at the vets this after-
noon anyway."
He took the $1.35 and as the
boy turned with the treasure
in his arms, the former owner
said, "Why would you want to
buy that one, son. He's crippled
and will never run and play with
you." The boy looked up at the
man and as he did, he pulled-up
one of his pant-legs that reveal
as large caliper brace.
He said, "I think this one is
going to need someone who
understands him."
He had his calling to share,
and so should ever teacher
that stands before a class of
students. "Wisdom One" is not
listed in any college curriculum.
The "fruits of the spirit" come
from the spirit that dwells with-
in (Galatians 5:22-26).

Warm, new

read on the

Cold War

'A key figure in the
early days of the
Reagan administra-
tion tells of one of
the first meetings
the new president had with his
military and security advisers.
Speaking of the Soviet Union,
Reagan is supposed to have
asked how the U.S. sized up
with the Russians.
Reagan wanted to know
whether the United States had
more planes, missiles, nuclear
warheads, and so forth. Each
time, the answer came back
negative. Finally the president
allegedly said, "What do we
have more of?"
After a long pause one of his
advisers held up his hand and
said, "money."
'Then that is what we will
use, to even things out,"
Reagan reportedly said.
Whether completely accu-
rate or not, the fact is that
this former movie star turned
politician took the nation down
a military spending path that
nearly bankrupted the nation
but ultimately led to the dis-
solution of the Soviet Union
and the end of the Cold War.
He literally forced the Russians
to keep up and in the end they
couldn't. At the same time it
dispelled the notion, long held
by his most liberal critics, that
he was an easily manipulated B
aqtor who rarely had an.origi-
nal thought
In fact it turns out that
nothing was further from the
truth, as two of his former key
advisers, Martin and Annelise
Anderson,.have documented
time and again in a series of
books based on Reagan's own
writings and private papers. It
is a body of work that reveals
a president whose core beliefs
never wavered and whose com-
mitment to solving the nuclear
arms race never faltered - a
far deeper, more introspective
chief executive than his oppo-
nents would let themselves
believe.
This husband and wife team
- senior fellows at the Hoover
Institution - have followed
up bestsellers "Reagan, In His
Own Hand," "Reagan: A Life in
Letters," and "Reagan's Path
to Victory" with an intimate
portrayal of a president not
only completely in charge
but making decisions without
hesitation. Using dozens of
secret letters from Reagan to
world leaders, the minutes of
154 Reagan-chaired National
Security Council meetings and
eyewitness notes from four
Reagan-Mikhail Gorbachev
summits, the authors reveal
a stubborn determination to
make the world a safer place.
Adding significantly to the
work is a foreword by former
Reagan Secretary of State
George Shultz who relates
a wonderful vignette about
Margaret Thatcher's reac-
tion to the Reykjavik meeting
where Reagan and Gorbachev
decided nuclear weaponry
should be abolished.
The entire series of the
Anderson histories are worth
one's time whether histori-
cally motivated or not. But this
latest is concisely written in
a direct style that turns what
could have been pretty heavy
going into a fascinating read.
Both authors are PhDs who
understand how to move along

BRIEFS

Health care floor
vote threatened
WASHINGTON -A
powerful House committee
chairman is threatening to
force a floor vote to break
the impasse on health care
overhaul.
Energy and Commerce
Chairman Henry Waxman
told The Associated Press
negotiations with fiscally
conservative Democrats on
his panel cannot go on "inter-
minably" because they would
"empower" Republicans and
allow the minority party to
take control of the panel.
The California Democrat
said Friday if he can't reach
agreement with the conser-
vatives, the health care bill
would go straight to the floor,
and not through his commit-
tee.

Palm reconnects
with iTunes
NEW YORK - Palm Inc.'s
Pre phone can again connect
to Apple's iTunes software
- just a week after Apple
Inc. shut it out.
A software update deliv-
ered automatically to the
phones re-enables the trans-
fer of music, photos and
video from iTunes, according
to a Palm blog post made
late Thursday.
The $200 Pre launched in
early June as a competitor
to Apple Inc.'s iPhone, and
became the first non-Apple
device that could connect
directly to iTunes. Apple
crippled that function with
an iTunes update last week,
saying Pres were "falsely pre-
tending to be iPods."
An Apple spokesman did
not immediately respond to a
request for comment Friday.
The iTunes battle is part
of a larger rivarly develop-
ing between Apple and
Palm, whose chairman and
CEO, Jon Rubinstein, once
was an executive at Apple
and oversaw the iPod. The
Pre includes a "multi-touch"
screen like Apple's iPhone,
which lets users do things
like pinch the display to zoom
in and out.

GM names dozen
new executives
NEW YORK - General
Motors Co. named more than
a dozen new executives to
top international posts on
Thursday, as the automaker's
sweeping shake-up of top
management spreads to its
sprawling operations over-
seas.
GM appointed 14 new
executives to its Shanghai-
based international opera-
tions, including new vice
presidents of purchasing,
quality, human resources and
manufacturing. The Shanghai
appointments take effect by
Sept. 1.
The new appointments
are part of GM's new culture
of "product and customer
focus, speed, risk-taking and
accountability," said Nick
Reilly, GM executive vice
president.
The automaker also named
Mike Arcamone, a longtime
executive in manufacturing
and global purchasing, CEO
of GM Daewoo, the compa-
ny's Korean operations. He
replaces Michael Grimaldi,
who is retiring Oct. 1.
GM also appointed Alan
Batey managing director of
GM Holden, the automaker's
Australian unit. Batey has
held sales and marketing
positions at GM's Middle
East, European and Korean
operations and replaces Mark
Reuss effective Sept. 1.


Swine flu may
infect many more
ATLANTA - U.S. health
officials say 20 to 40 percent
of Americans could become
ill from swine flu over the next
Stwo years.
That estimate from the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention is twice the
number of people who usu-
ally get sick in a normal flu


season. Officials said that
projection would drop if a
planned vaccine campaign
and other measures are suc-
cessful.
Based on the new projec-
tions, the number of swine
flu deaths over two years
could range from 90,000 to
several hundred thousand, if
efforts to stem the flu failed.
The CDC said the estimates
are based on a 1957 flu pan-
demic.

Financial leaders dispute over

top consumer watchdog position


By ANNE FLAHERTY
Associated Press

WASHINGTON -
Treasury Secretary
Timothy Geithner and
Federal Reserve Chairman
Ben Bernanke squared off
Friday in a public dispute
on who should become
the nation's top consumer
watchdog.
In testimony prepared for
a House hearing, Geithner
said it was important to strip
the Fed and other regula-
tors of their consumer pro-
tection duties and create a
new federal agency dedicat-
ed solely to such a mission.
Bernanke disagreed, say-
ing that the Fed is best
suited to the task.
Monitoring risk and
protecting consumers are
"closely related, and thus
entail both informational
advantages and resource


savings," said Bernanke.
Geithner said he wel-
comes debate but that the
stakeholders must agree to
reform.
"We simply cannot afford
inaction on this issue," he
said.
Bernanke's push back
comes as he's nearing the
end of his term. After it
expires early next year,
President Barack Obama
will have to decide whether
to reappoint him. Bernanke,
an appointee of President
George W. Bush, took over
the Fed in February 2006.
House Democrats say
they are committed to
advancing Geithner's pro-
posal, although the effort
has slowed amid industry
opposition.
Financial Services
Committee Chairman
Barney Frank, D-Mass.,
delayed plans to consider


the proposal this month
until after Congress returns
from its August recess.
Nearly two dozen indus-
try groups had written to
Frank objecting to the leg-
'islation and warning that it
was too broad.
Frank said he believes
the bill has enough support
to win approval but agreed
to slow down to give the
opposition a chance to
weigh in.
"They've invited a nation-
al debate that I want to
have," he said.
The proposal to create .a
consumer protection agen-
cy is part of a broader over-
haul of the nation's financial
rules. The agency would
monitor the fine print on
such products as credit
cards and mortgages. Such
oversight is now scattered
among the Fed and other
agencies.

CIT sweetens buyback terms


Associated Press
NEW YORK - Small-
business lender CIT Group
Inc.. said Friday it has
sweetened some terms of a
buyback offer for $1 billion
of debt and repeated that
it may have to seek bank-
ruptcy protection if enough
noteholders don't agree to
it.
The New York-based
financial company said in a
regulatory filing that if the
offer is successful it won't
file for bankruptcy and
will pursue a restructuring
through other unspecified
ways.
CIT Group, one of the
nation's largest lenders to
small and midsize business-
es, has been scrambling to
find new funding as it wres-
tles with liquidity pressure
and maturing debt. The
government had refused
to save the company last
week.
Earlier this week, major
bondholders agreed to
provide CIT with a $3 bil-
lion rescue loan, but it cau-
tioned that the loan might
not be enough to head off a


cash squeeze.
At the same time it agreed
to the loan, CIT launched
the cash-offer for $1 billion
worth of senior notes due
Aug. 17 and warned it may
have to file for bankruptcy
if it failed.
Under CIT's amended
note buyback offer dis-
closed Friday, holders of
certain notes due in August
will get an extra $50 per,
$1,000 principal of the notes
if they tender them by July
31 for a total of $825 pef
$1,000 in principal.
Its shares rose 13 cents,
or 17 percent, to 87 cents
in midday trading Friday.
Over the past year, its
shares have traded as low
as 31. cents a share and
down from a high of $13.
The Wall Street Journal,
meanwhile, reported Friday
that CIT had rebuffed ,as
too low an offer from two
conglomerates to buy parts
of the company earlier this
year but was now consider-
ing a similar breakup of its
own. The newspaper cited
unidentified people familial
with the matter.


Samsung profits rise 5.2 percent

SEOUL, South Korea -
Samsung Electronics Co.,
the world's biggest maker

net profit rose 5.2 percent
while rival Hynix reported
a narrower loss as the chip

Samsung, also the
world's biggest manufac-
turer of flat screen televi-
sions, earned 2.25 trillion
won ($1.81 billion) in the
three months ended June
30, it said in a regulatory
filing Friday. The company
posted net profit of 2.14
trillion won a year earlier.
Its results were under-
pinned by growth in sales

Separately, Hynix
Semiconductor Inc., the

chips after Samsung, said
its second quarter net loss
narrowed to 58 billion won
from red ink of 711 bil-

The result was its seventh

Oil prices aid to stock market gain


By PABLO GORONDI
Associated Press

Oil prices held above $67
a barrel Friday, adding to
gains made overnight, as
world stock markets rallied
on signs of improvement in
the U.S. economy.
In Europe, benchmark
crude for September
delivery was up 11 cents
to $67.27 a barrel in after-
noon electronic trading on
the New York Mercantile
Exchange. On Thursday,
the contract added $1.76 to
settle at $67.16.
Evidence that the reces-
sion-hit U.S. economy is
strengthening has bolstered
investor optimism and trig-
gered a rally from $58.78


a barrel two weeks ago.
While crude demand hasn't
rebounded yet, traders have
begun to have more faith
that consumption will even-
tually pick up.
"We haven't seen demand
increase yet, but all the good
news about the economy
seems to be adding fuel to
the fire," said Gerard Rigby,
an energy analyst with Fuel
First Consulting in Sydney.
"Just the fact that things
are improving is enough to
change the sentiment of a
lot of people."
Investors were cheered
by a National Association
of Realtors report Thursday
that said sales of previously
occupied homes rose for the
third month in a row. The


last time that happened was
in the middle of the housing
boom in early 2004.
The Dow Jones industrial
average rose 2.1 percent
Thursday to above 9,000 for
the first time since January.
The Dow is up 11 percent
in the last nine days, while
on Friday stock markets
in Asia and Europe were
mostly higher.
"If the current optimism
lifting shares is totally
unfounded then the current
strength in oil will prob-
ably not hold," said Olivier
Jakob of Petromatrix in
Switzerland. 'But if the
global destruction of the
economy has indeed bot-
tomed ... then so should
have the oil markets."

Obama apologizes for choice of words


Associated Press

WASHINGTON -
Trying to tamp down an
uproar over race, President
Barack Obama said Friday
he used an unfortunate
choice of words in com-
menting on the arrest of-
black scholar Henry Louis
Gates Jr. and could have
"calibrated those words
differently."
The president said he
had telephoned the white
policeman who arrested
Gates, and he said the con-
versation confirmed his
belief that the officer was a
good man and an outstand-
ing officer.
The president caused
a stir when he said at a
prime-time news confer-
ence earlier this week that
Cambridge, Mass., police
had "acted stupidly" by
arresting Gates, a Harvard
scholar and friend of the
president's, for disorderly
conduct.
On Friday, Obama made
an impromptu appearance


ASSOCIATED PRESS
President Barack Obama pauses as he talks to the media in the briefing room at the White House in Washington on Friday.


at the daily White House
briefing in an effort to
contain the controversy.
He said he continued to
believe that both the offi-
cer, Sgt. James Crowley,


and Gates had overreacted
during the incident, but
the president also faulted
his own comments.
' "This has been ratch-
eting up, and I obviously'


helped to contribute ratch-
eting it up," he said. "I
Want to make clear that
in my choice of words, I
think I unfortunately gave
an impression that I was


maligning the Cambridge
police department and Sgt.
Crowley specifically. And I
could've calibrated those
words differently."
The incident began when


police went to Gates' home
last week after a passer-by
reported a potential break-
in. It turned out that Gates
had tried to jimmy open
his own door, which was
stuck, and there was no
intruder. Gates protested
the police actions and was
arrested, . although the
charges have since been
dropped.
Before Obama's appear-
ance Friday, a multiracial
group of police officers
stood with Crowley in
Massachusetts and asked
Obama and the state's
governor, Deval Patrick,
to apologize for com-
ments they called insult-
ing. Patrick has said Gates'
arrest was "every black
man's nightmare,/
Dennis O'Connor, presi-
dent of the Cambridge
Police Superior Officers
Association, said Obama's
remarks were "misdirect-
ed" and the Cambridge
police "deeply resent the
implication" that race was
a factor in the arrest.


Dems design steps to


cut Medicare growth


By DAVID ESPO and
ERICA WERNER
Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Key
House Democrats agreed
Friday on steps designed
to cut the growth of
Medicare, clearing one, of
numerous obstacles block-
ing an early vote on health
care legislation.
But even as Speaker
Nancy Pelosi hailed the
agreement as a "giant step
forward" on President
Barack Obama's top
domestic legislation, lead-
ers struggled without suc-
cess to ease the concerns
of moderate to conserva-
tive Democrats who have
held up progress on the
bill for a week. With the
talks at a deadlock, a key
committee chairman sug-
gested an end run around
the rebels.
At the White House,
Obama met with senators
in an attempt to speed
completion of a bipartisan
deal that has been under
discussion for weeks.
The flurry of activity
occurred as the adminis-
tration and Democratic
leaders foughtback against
the impression that the


legislation was sputtering
despite months of effort
and negotiation.
Democratic officials
in the House said late-
night talks had produced
agreement on changes
in Medicare to try and
reward doctors, hospitals
and other providers for
high-quality care. Critics
argue the current system
simply pays by volume
- compensating provid-
ers regardless' of whether
additional medical proce-
dures contribute to better
health care.
Under the agreement,
the Institute of Medicine
would complete a study
by September 2011 rec-
ommending changes in
the current fee structure.
The administration would
have 45 days to submit
the report to Congress,
and it would go into effect
unless Congress blocked
it by the end of February
2012.
Separately, lawmakers
agreed to call for a sec-
ond study by the Institute
of Medicine to investigate
regional differences in
payments to Medicare pro-
viders, to be implemented
in 2014.


, Officials said the two
steps combined were
designed to control
the steady increase in
Medicare costs, although
they provided no imme-
diate estimates of antici-
pated savings.
Obama has said repeat-
edly he wants legislation to
control the cost of health
care as well as to expand
insurance coverage to mil-
lions who now lack it.
In another part of the
Capitol on Friday, Rep.
Mike Ross, D-Ark., said
attempts by so-called Blue
Dogs to win changes had
ended in stalemate.
"It pretty much fell apart
this afternoon," he said.
The group has enough
votes on the Energy and
Commerce Committee to
prevent the bill's passage
there, and the chairman,
Rep. Henry Waxman, D-
Calif., raised the possibil-
ity of simply bypassing the
panel and taking the legis-
lation directly to the floor.
"We're going to have to
'look at perhaps bypassing
the committee because
we've got to get moving on
this legislation," he said.
"I hope we don't come to
that conclusion."

Man urges review
of Bush abuses
WASHINGTON - The
chairman of the House
Judiciary Committee on
Friday urged Attorney
General Eric Holder to
appoint a special counsel to

Rep. John Conyers, D-

Protests follow
policy on prayer
PITTSBURGH - State
House officials say they have
been inundated with protests
about a policy that barred
a clergyman from using the
word "Jesus" in a prayer that
was to open one of the law-
makers' daily sessions.
The Rev. Gerry
Stoltzfoos, of the Freedom
Valley Worship Center in
Gettysburg, had planned to
end his recent prayer with "In
Jesus' name, Amen." Under
the policy then in effect, he
was asked by House Speaker
Keith McCall's office to sub-
mit the planned prayer in writ-
ing and to make sure it was
nondenominational.
"They said my prayer was
rejected because it contained
an offensive word. Just
once, in closing, I mentioned
Jesus," he said. "I thought
they were kidding. I had care-
fully crafted the prayer not to
be offensive in any way."
He said he decided not to
say the prayer at all rather
than omit the name. The inci-
dent has sparked a contro-
versy on the Internet includ-
ing an online petition and
denunciations of McCall.

'No church zone'
in town falls flat
HARRISONBURG, Va.
- A business group that
floated the idea of prevent-
ing churches from moving
into a three-block stretch of
the town of Broadway's.Main
Street has been told such a
proposal would be illegal.
Some merchants worried
about the impact of churches
among storefronts, so they
asked the Town.Council to
look into a ban on houses of
worship in their retail area.
They said more churches
could put a crimp on com-
merce.
Many residents disagreed.
Some were concerned the
restriction might be sacri-
legious, or at least be per-
ceived as such.
The council referred
the matter to the Planning
Commission, which tabled
the request until staff could
research the legal ramifica-
tions of such a ban.

Mormons find
refuge in Web site
SALT LAKE CITY
- Mormons struggling with
doubt or disaffection can find
themselves with a difficult
choice: Stay in the church or
abandon the faith?
Now, they can go online for
advice from a community of
Mormons who at some point
have suffered a personal
crisis of faith, teetered on
the edge of quitting and then
found a way to remain active
members of the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints.
"You are not alone," an
introduction page at StayLDS.
corn reads. "We are here to
listen and offer advice. We
openly discuss problems in
history, doctrine, practices
and culture. We also openly
discuss solutions that have
helped people in the com-
munity reconcile themselves,
and find a new, personal path.
of active faith within our rich
LDS tradition."
The Web site is not
sanctioned or endorsed by
Mormon church, nor is it
staffed by experts in religion,
psychology or communica-
tions. Instead it's run by and
used by Latter-day Saints
trying to provide comfort and
support for the disillusioned.

Ruling upheld in
Bibles case
ST. LOUIS - A federal
appeals court has upheld a
ruling that prohibits the dis-
tribution of Bibles to grade
schoolers in a rural southern
.Missouri district.
But both sides saw the rul-
ing as a victory. An attorney
representing the South Iron
School District in Annapolis
said the decision allows a
new policy to finally be imple-
mented, one that allows any
group to hand out literature
at the rural district, including
information on how kids can


obtain Bibles.

Former Christian Coalition leader seeks redemption


By GREG BLUESTEIN
Associated Press
ATLANTA
Ralph Reed
was once a
powerful force
in Republican
politics, able
to marshal millions of
religious conservatives to
the polls while leading the
Christian Coalition.
Then his political career
took a tumble in 2006
when he was clobbered by
a lesser-known opponent
in the Republican primary
for Georgia lieutenant
governor, leading some to
conclude Reed's days as'
an influential GOP figure
were over.
But Reed is searching
for a dose of redemption.
He's launched a new
venture that supporters
hope will bolster a ,
Republican Party
struggling to find its
footing after the 2008'
election and a recent
string of embarrassing
scandals.
"I don't view it as a
comeback," Reed said in a


recent interview. "I view it
as something I've always
done - trying to be part
of the solution and trying
to build at the grass roots."
The startup, known as
the Faith and Freedom
Coalition, is little more
than a Web site, but
Reed hopes to turn it
into a strident new force
that uses social media
to capture a broader,
younger and more diverse
audience.
Perhaps most telling,
the man who helped
cement religious
conservatives into a solid
GOP voting bloc said he
won't focus his group on
social issues, but rather,
the economic crisis.
"This is not the
Christian Coalition redux,"
Reed said. "It's a much
broader attempt. Our
primary focus is jobs, the
economy, taxes, creating
economic opportunity.
That's the number one
issue in the country right
now."
The 48-year-old will have
his work cut out for him.
He, could still be dogged


by ties to disgraced
-lobbyist Jack Abramoff,
and will need to overcome
concerns that contributed
to his embarrassing
campaign loss in 2006. And'
Reed faces a new political
landscape in the aftermath
of President Barack
Obama's historic election.
Some of his former
allies doubt lightning can
strike twice.
Billy McCormack,
a founding member of
the. Christian Coalition,
said Reed helped ignite
a conservative base
in the 1990s that was
like "packed dynamite"
searching for a spark.
"It's not likely the
second match will produce
as much power," said
McCormack, a Louisiana
pastor who still sits on the
coalition's board. "The
likelihood of him being
able to repeat that is
difficult."
Still, some religious
conservatives appear
hopeful of his return.
There are still plenty
of groups seeking to
represent eVahgelicals


in the political arena, but
former colleagues say
Reed's exodus left a huge
void at the grass roots
level.
"No one is organizing
at the precinct and county
level like the Christian
Coalition did," said Joel
Vaughan, who worked
with Reed at the coalition
through the 1990s and
wrote the recent book
'"The Rise and Fall of the
Christian Coalition: The
Inside Story." .
"And if Ralph can do
that, I say more power to
him," Vaughan said.
Reed was at the helm
of the Christian Coalition
from 1989 to 1997, leading
the organization founded
by Pat Robertson to
national prominence and
helping to transform the
Christian right into a
political powerhouse. Reed
become a rising star of the
GOP and earned a cover
story in Time magazine.
After Reed stepped
down in 1997 to court
Christian conservative
voters for Bush's 2000
campaign, the group's


influence and fundraising
ability began to wane. In
2001, Robertson severed ,
ties with the coalition
to concentrate on his
ministry.
Reed returned to the
Atlanta suburbs to help
engineer the rise of GOP .
politics in Georgia, then
a Democratic stronghold
despite its conservative
leanings. He chaired the
state party during the
2002 elections, when
voters elected the first
Republican governor since
1872, gained control of the
state Senate for the first
time in generations and
ousted Democratic U.S.
Sen. Max Cleland.
I Reed's rise eventually
met a swift fall. His
decision to put a new face
forward - his own -
turned disastrous in 2006
when he was sideswiped
by the scandal involving
Abramoff, who had hired
Reed's public relations
and lobbying businesses
to battle the opening
of casinos that would
compete with Abramoff's
American Indian clients.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE SATURDAY, JULY 25, 2009


who knows what wonderful surprises are in store
when we have friends and family who love
us...who think ahead and make plans for our
happiness when we least expect it...even while we are
up to our own devices.
Our Heavenly Father has loving plans for us as well.
While we go about our daily lives, God is always with
us, even when we think we have it all under control.
Our Creator knows us and is faithful to us. "For I
know the plans I have for you...to give you a future
and a hope." (Jeremiah 29:11)
We can take time from our busy schedules to spend
time with God and to praise His faithfulness to us.
Plan to worship Him this week!

Season

could be

classic
" T "vhat a
special year
the 2009
W ^ college
� � football
season should make.
There are so many
stories with just over a
month remaining before
the official kickoff that
this column might not
have enough room to fill
them all. We'll try to focus
on some of the bigger
issues around the state of
Florida, which naturally
begins with the Florida
Gators trying to win a third
national championship in
four years and become the
only team to repeat in BCS
bowl history (excluding
Southern California,
which finished first in the
Associated Press poll in 2003
and won it all in 2004).
Everyone knows what to
expect of the Gators. The
only question is whether or
not the players can live up
to those expectations.
This year will'also mark
the first time in college
football history that the
previous years top three
Heisman trophy vote
getters return the next
season. Could this possibly
be the best Heisman
race in the history of
college football? Could
it possibly be the best
group of college football
quarterbacks in history?
If Colt McCoy somehow
wins the trophy this year,
you would have three
Heisman trophy winning
quarterbacks entering the
NFL draft next season.
Will Florida State
get their wins? More
importantly, will Bobby
Bowden get his wins? We
still don't know the answer
to this question and it could
play the most important
role in determining the
game's all-time winningest
coach. Will Florida State
return to power? They have
an experienced quarterback
returning for his Redshirt-
Junior season in Christian
Ponder and their offensive
line will be a strength for
the first time in a long time.
Could Florida State make it
to a BCS bowl game?
Could the University
of South Florida break
through and win the Big
East? With Matt Grothe at
quarterback and George
Selvie causing havoc on
the defensive line, there is
potential in Tampa. West
Virginia should still be the
class of the Big East, but
there's hope for the Bulls.
Will the Hurricanes of
Miami strike fear into the
hearts of their opponents
when they go up against
"The U"? Miami showed
potential last season,
but the question is still
out. It will all depend
on what Jacory Harris
does at quarterback. The
Hurricanes defense has
proven they can keep their
team in any game, but the
offense has struggled to
provide much support.
In 40 days, we'll start
to answer some of these
questions.

Spurrier did it


Former coach
admits he left
Tebow off ballot.
By JOHN ZENOR
Associated Press
HOOVER, Ala. - Steve
Spurrier cleared up
the biggest mystery at
Southeastern Conference
rdedia days: How Tim
Tebow got left off a pre-
season All-SEC ballot.
Spurrier said Friday that
South Carolina's director
of football operations Jamie
Speronis filled out the bal-
lot in his stead and voted
for Mississippi's Jevan
Snead.
The other coaches
picked Tebow, the Heisman
Trophy winner two years
ago.
"We screwed it up pretty
badly," said Spurrier, who
approved the ballot. "I'm
embarrassed about it. I feel
bad about it."
Spurrier said he has
apologized, to Tebow and
that the SEC has let him


amend the ballot to add
Tebow. The vote totals
have been changed on
the league Web site.
The former Florida
coach and quarterback
- also a Heisman win-
ner - called Tebow the
best football player in the
country. He said Tebow
and ex-Gator Danny
Wuerffel might go down
as the two best quarter-
backs in college football
history.
Spurrier said he has
never filled out a pre-
season All-SEC ballot
himself.
"I haven't done that in
17 years," Spurrier said.
"I usually look it over and
I sign off on it. I did a
poor job of looking it over
this year."
Tracking down the lone
coach to pick Mississippi's
Jevan Snead was a week-
long question.
Tennessee coach Lane
Kiffin even brought his bal-
lot to the stage with him
and showed it to an SEC
staffer, who confirmed his

Tebow pick. He said he had
help filling out the ballot,
"but I was obviously a big
part of it."
Still, Spurrier's explana-.
tion raised questions about
whether coaches fill out
their own Top 25 ballots


during the season. Spurrier
said he looks over his "a lot
more thoroughly" than pre-
season All-SEC teams.
He said he remains an
advocate of coaches releas-
ing their ballots publicly.

The Tigers next two

Columbia stacked up

get over the top in either
matchup.
Plant edged the Tigers
with a one point victory,

NASCAR

ruling

Mayfield once
again suspended
after failed test.

By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS -
Jeremy Mayfield is back
under suspension for a
failed random drug test after
an appeals court ruled in
NASCAR's favor Friday, issu-
ing a stay on the injunction
that gave the driver the right
to return to the race track.
The one-page decision by
the 4th U.S. Circuit Court
of Appeals stands until
NASCAR's full appeal can
be heard.
NASCAR appealed to the
Richmond, Va., court after
a federal judge on July 1
lifted Mayfield's suspension
based on the argument that
the drug testing system was
flawed.
U.S. District Court Judge
Graham Mullen still has
NASCAR's request before
him to overturn his earlier

second time on July 6.
Mayfield was suspended
May 9 for failing a random
test done eight days ear-
lier, and NASCAR has 'said
he tested positive for mefth-
amphetamine. Mayfield
has denied ever using the
illegal drug.
He is not entered in

indicated he has n6 inten-
tion of returning to racing

win and try to avoid all the
other stuff, which is very dif-
ficult to do because there's a
constant barrage of people
wanting to talk about it"
But the distractions that
Georgia faced hardly rival
the kind of hoopla surround-
ing Florida. Judging by the
preseason football maga-
zines and the national buzz,
everyone else is just playing
out the season for the right
to face Florida for the BCS
national championship.
Coach Urban Meyer,
however, isn't waiting for
the fall to take the one-
week-at-a-time approach.
"I want to get through
these next two weeks,"
Meyer said Thursday at the
SEC's media days. "We go
real hard for a week, then
they have a week off and we
start (preseason) camp. I
don't look much past that."
But, he added, the pri-
mary ambition is to make
it to the SEC championship
game. It has been a launch-
ing pad for two national titles
in the past three seasons.


"We wake up every morn-
ing to achieve that goal,"
Meyer said.
The Bulldogs couldn't
live up to their preseason
billing, having to "settle"
for a 10-3 season while-get-
ting physically bullied by
Alabama, routed 49-10 by
Florida and losing to in-
state rival Georgia Tech.
There is one potential
benefit to losing quarter-
back' Matthew Stafford and
tailback Knowshon Moreno,
the No. 1 and No. 12 NFL
draft picks, respectively.
"Everybody expected us
to win 'em all because we
had two guys that every-
body considered stars and
maybe subconsciously our
guys thought, 'We can count
on these guys,"' Richt said.
"Now that they're gone, I
think our team understands
the only chance they have
is to play together, work
together, earn it as a team."
The Crimson Tide is also
drawing attention thanks to
last year's 12-0 regular sea-
son. Having starslike receiver


SEC: Vols' Berry has Heisman hype


Continued From Page 11

25 in the coaches poll with
some help.

Berry, Berry good

Eric Berry says being
promoted by Tennessee
for the Heisman Trophy is
"pretty cool," but that he
won't let it go to his head.
"Just hearing that they
wanted to push the cam-
paign for me, that made
me feel very good," the
All-America safety said. "I
really love the UT staff for
doing that. I was all for it.
It's pretty cool. I like it."
The junior led the
Football Bowl Subdivision
with seven interceptions
last season and his 487
return yards on picks is
only 15 shy of the NCAA
career record.
But Berry said he still
approaches the season "like
I'm a freshman trying to
earn a spot."
The only defensive play-
er ever to win a Heisman
was Michigan defensive


back. Charles Woodson,
who coincidentally beat out
Vols quarterback Peyton
Manning 12 years ago.
"That' would be cool
being put in the same cate-
gory as Charles Woodson,"
Berry said. "I'd rather be
put in the same category as
USC or Florida and win the
national championship and
the SEC championship."

LSU's redemption

LSU coach Les Miles
said new coordinator John
Chavis will have a big impact
on the defense. He expects
the offense to improve
with quarterbacks Jordan
Jefferson - the front-run-
ner to start - and Jarrett
Lee both having some more
experience.
' As result, Miles is expect-
ing much, better results
than last season's 3-5
Southeastern Conference
record - and he knows
Tiger fans are too.

win was not enough," Miles
said. "Our football team's a
little more wanting, a little
more ambitious. I think
that's spilled into the prepa-
ration in the offseason."
Linebacker Jacob Cutrera
said Chavis, a longtime
Tennessee defensive coor-
dinator, has brought more
intensity to a defense that
had uncharacteristic strug-
gles last season. Wanting to
erase last year. has helped,
too.
"In my four years here,
we haven't had a spring like
we had this spring," Cutrera
said. "Every practice was so
juiced up, so amped up. I
think we'll carry over that
into the fall."
At quarterback, Jefferson
is listed atop the depth
chart after directing the
bowl win.
"He's bigger and stronger
than he has been," Miles
said. "In my opinion, the
experience that he had in
his true freshman year will
benefit him tremendously."

certainly helps.
McClain figures
Alabama's season-ending
losses to Florida in the
SEC championship game
and Utah in the Sugar Bowl
help keep the team ground-
ed as much as anything the
coaches could say.
"I don't think we need a
coaching staff to tell us any-
thing," he said. "Last year
we won 12 games but we
lost the last two games, so
that's not a lot of success.
For us as a team, we're
just hungry and we want to
work to get better."
Coach Nick Saban, mean-
while, said he thinks the
league's competition will be
as tough as ever.
"If you're gonna win it
all, you really have to have
great competitive charac-
ter and do it on a consis-
tent basis, because ... you
cannot be up and down or
you're not gonna sustain it
in our league," Saban said.

HAGARTHE HORRIBLE


DEAR ABBY


Grandparents' subterfuge


heals boy's hurt feelings


DEAR ABBY: We invited
our 5-year-old son's entire
class to his birthday party.
Unbeknownst to us, another
child had one scheduled the
same day. Because my son
was new to the school and
hadn't made friends yet,
he wasn't invited. Imagine
how he felt when only one
child. showed up. Had even
one parent RSVP'd and said
there was another party that
day, we would have resched-
uled. Because good manners
were disregarded, our child
was hurt.
I mentioned it to my par-
ents, and to cheer our son up
we decided to take him to the
beach. When we returned
and opened our front door,
we found assorted wrapped
presents with cards attached
wishing our son a happy
birthday and saying, "We're
sorry we couldn't come to
your party."
My folks did not tell us
they were going to do it.
They said they had "found"
the presents on the porch
and brought them inside
while they were house-sit-
ting. Their thoughtfulness
and caring - not to mention
their .creativity - took away
much of the hurt. I get tears
in my eyes thinking about it.
Our son is now in his early
teens and has never been
told the story.
I would like to thank my
parents again and tell them
how much their gesture
