Case managers Velda Steele (lefl) and Stacy Jenkins of the Community Mercy Center want the public to rest assured that the
center is still open, and they will do anything to keep it that way The faith-based center is moving forward amid the arrests of the

Mercy center finds faith in troubled times

Mercy Center
may have fallen
on hard times,
but that hasn't
stopped center officials
from continuing to help
those in need.
Two weeks ago, the
center's former president,
and executive director, the
Rev. Samuel Taylor, was
arrested and charged with
defrauding the center's
principle sponsor, First
Assembly of God in Lake
City. The center's former
finance director, Anthony
Raburn, also faces similar
charges, and a sign in front
of the First Assembly of
God, where the center is
located, states the property
is for sale.
Despite this, officials
with the faith-based center
believe the adversity the
organization faces will only
strengthen it in the long
run as they continue to
move forward, albeit cau-
tiously.
Case manager Velda
Steele and Stacy Jenkins,

servant" of the cen-

developments.
Steele said that no
matter what, a homeless
shelter is a necessity in
Columbia County.
"The question is no
longer if it's (a homeless
shelter) a need, but the
question is how to go about


it in a manner that the
community supports and is
transparent," she said.
On Monday, eight
people were still utiliz-
ing the services of the
Community Mercy
Center. And while the
center isn't accepting
any new residents until


its situation stabilizes, it
hasn't kept officials from
referring people in need
to other organizations
locally. Steele said she
sees at least two walk-in
clients a day claiming to
need help. Steele said
other organizations in
town have been helpful,
including the United Way,
and that many businesses
like Old Times Country
Buffett continue to
support the Community,

Jenkins said that he
wants people to see that,
in spite of all that has
happened recently, there
are good things going on,
at the center and that it is
helping change people's
lives for the better.
"We pray that the
community will rally
around, not necessarily
this place, but this
opportunity to help oth- .
ers," he said. "We don't
want people to stop giving
because of the
uncertainty that people are
being helped, because I
can guarantee people here
are being helped."

Walter C. Keaton
once owned 3

By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter. corn
Longtime Lake City resi-
dent Walter C. Keaton, who
owned and operated sev-
eral Main Street businesses
beginning in the 1940s, died
on Saturday, July 25, at the
age of 90.
Keaton was born in 1918
to father Walter C. Keaton,
Sr. and mother Bertie B.
Keaton. A 1937 graduate
of Columbia High School,
Keaton later married
Marguerite Rogers in 1939,
and the two celebrated their
69th wedding anniversary
in 2008. Keaton worked for
his father for several years
before opening his first
business in 1948 at the for-
mer site of the Okay Inn. A


decade later, Keaton moved
his locksmith and bicycle
shop to its current location
on Marion Avenue. The
shop, a popular business on
the street, sold everything
from keys and bicycles to
televisions and radios. He
also owned and operated
Keaton's Toyland.
- Jeff Bertram, president
of the Downtown Action
Corporation, purchased
Keaton's Locksmith in the
late '80s after working for
Keaton for several years.
"I first met him in the
summer of 1972, and during
your lifetime you have those
pivotal moments - when
you get married, when you
have your. first child, and
you always remember those
things," Bertram said. "This

Only one item was left

reluctant to have the space-

the time remaining.

NYC choreographer Cunningham dies at 90


NEW YORK
M erce Cunningham,
the avant-garde
dancer and chore-
ographer who revo-
lutionized modern
dance by creating works of pure
movement divorced from storytell-
ing and even from their musical
accompaniment, has died at age 90,
a spokeswoman said Monday.
- .Cinningham died on Sunday
at:his Manhattan home of natural
causes, said Leah'Sandals, spokes-
woman for the Merce Cunningham '
Dance Company. Sandals would not
specify the exact cause of death.
"Merce saw beauty in the
ordinary, which is what made
him extraordinary," said Trevor
Carlson, executive director of the
Cunningham Dance Foundation. "He
did not allow convention to lead him,
but was a true artist, honest and
forthcoming in everything he did."
" In a career that spanned more .
than 60 years and some 150 works,
Cunningham wiped out storytell-
ing in dance, tossed coins or dice to
determine steps, and shattered such
unwritten rules as having dancers
usually face the audience.
. The New York Times wrote in
1982, "As playful as he has often
seemed, Cunningham has always
been one of America's most serious
artists ... one of the few true revolu-
tionaries in the history of dance."

good things about him, and
the way he's helped me,
I wouldn't be here as the
owner of Keaton Locksmith
butfor his trust and his faith

Columbia County, I can't
tell you .how many people
tell me that they worked for
him at some point and how
he changed their lives, how


they started fixing bicycles
and have gone on to be
bankers, doctors and law-
yers. He was a way of influ-
encing people, and I think
for the better."
Keaton was a deacon at
First Baptist Church of Lake

and often taught Sunday
school to young boys and
girls. He was president of
Kiwanis International in
1967, and a members of the

Battered

women


a 'social

group?'

F or nearly 15 years,
the United States
government has
been trying to
decide whether it
.can grant asylum to women
,who are victims of severe
physical or sexual abuse. The
question is not the fact of perse-
cution, but whether the women
would qualify for protection
under the law, which limits
asylum to those who suffer due
to their race, religion, national-
-ity, political opinion or "mem-
bership in a particular social
group."
Does a battered woman
belong to a "particular social
group"? The legal record is
muddled. Decisions from attor-
neys general under Presidents
Bill Clinton and George W.
Bush have gone both ways and
in circles.
Now, though, the Obama
administration has laid what
Julia Preston described in The
Times last week as a clear but
narrow pathway to asylum for
battered women. Not all victims
will qualify, but the administra-
Stion made it clear that some .
could. A petitioner would have
to demonstrate to a judge that
domestic violence was widely
tolerated by society and gov-
ernment in her country, that
women were viewed as subor-
dinate to men and that she had'
no place within its borders to
find a safe haven.
-That definition could
well apply, lawyers for the
Department of Homeland
'Security said, to the Mexican
woman whose asylum petition
is:before an immigration court
in San Francisco. The woman,
identified in court papers as
L. R., was imprisoned, beaten,
repeatedly raped and impreg-
nated by a man who stole from
her and tried to burn her alive
by setting her bed afire.
... Advocates who have
-fought for years to advance
women's rights are celebrating
the department's action, which
brings reasoned compassion,
and an overdue dose of clarity,
to an issue of anguish and dif-
;ficulty.

OTHER OPINION


Obama and the unfortunate adverb


President Obama's
prime-time press con-
ference was making
little news but mov-
ing along smartly, on
schedule not to run over into
"America's Got Talent," until the
last question, from a reporter
for a Chicago newspaper who
has covered Obama since he
came to Washington.
She asked about the arrest of
Harvard scholar Henry Louis
Gates Jr., perhaps the nation's
leading expert on the history
of race relations in America.
Obama noted that."Skip" Gates
was a friend of his, "so I might
be a little biased here." So far,
so good.
Arriving home, Gates and
his driver tried to force a balky
door to get into his house. A
neighbor misinterpreted this
as an attempted burglary and
called the cops'.
Obama observed, "I don't
know all the facts," and he


should have kept that in mind.
But this is one of those defining
incidents that Americans can't
resist endlessly hashing over
in search of deeper meanings
about race, class and our society
in general.
Gates and the officer sent
to investigate got into some
kind of altercation, one of those
pointless confrontations that
likely would have quickly dis-
sipated if one party or another
had backed away. Who knows?
Maybe the officer was abrupt
and demanding. Gates may
have been tired and jet-lagged
from his flight back from China.
The upshot was that a 42-year-i
old white police sergeant led a
58-year-old black distinguished
scholar away in handcuffs to be
charged with disorderly conduct
for "loud and tumultuous behav-
ior." Tumultuous? Well, it is
Cambridge, Mass., after all.
Regrettably, the president
went on to characterize the


police as acting "stupidly."
Maybe so, but Obama wasn't
in a position to make that judg-
ment. Unfortunately for the
hour he had spent arguing for
health-care reform, the blogo-
sphere and the TV and radio
talkers seized on "stupidly," and
some part of.America automati-
cally divided into those who can
only see the incident in black or
white: Gates brought it on him-
self; it wouldn't have happened
if he was white.
Obama went on to talk about
the problem of blacks and
Hispanics being disproportion-
ately singled out by law enforce-
ment, and speak eloquently .
about the "incredible progress"
we've made in race relations,
testimony to that being the fact
that "I am standing here."
Did we mention that the
press conference was about
health care?'

4A


Obama

must come

up with the

solution
Oh dear. After
President Obama's
news conference
on health care/
health insurance
reform, I am more confused
than ever about whether it will
- or should - pass this year.
I buy the argument that
health care is tied directly to
the economic health of the
United States. One of every six
dollars generated in America
goes for health care, yet 47
million people have no insur-
ance and many who do don't
have enough coverage in case
of serious illness or injury. Too
often pre-existing conditions
are not covered.
I agree the status quo is
not working and that medical
bills are driving far too many
personal bankruptcies and
job losses - General Motors
toppled in part because of
high health policy premiums.
Medicaid and Medicare, which
pay for many of our poor and
elderly, are headed toward
disaster because they are so
costly.
I'm appalled at the political
gamesmanship on Capitol Hill
as real people suffer (and die).
I don't understand why
Obama isn't more aggres-
sive about what we need and
h6w we should pay for it If
Congress acts this year, there
will undoubtedly be a mandate
that everybody has to buy
insurance, with the poor being
subsidized. Yet he has come
late to the table on this.
He has talked about bring-
ing down the upward-spiraling
cost of health care. But he
insists nobody has to sacrifice,
and that there won't be ration-
ing, which is almost certainly
going to happen.
Obama is honest enough to
say he understands our skepti-
'cism. The last administration
pushed Congress to pass a
huge Medicare prescription
bill we couldn't pay for, leading
to huge deficits. The govern-
ment's interference in issues is
often scandalous, bureaucratic
and inept.
The president wants to end
the proverbial waste, fraud
and abuse in the health care
industry.
On the other hand, one doc-
tor's waste is another's life-sav-
ing medical test Who decides?
An independent board that
decides what will be covered
in an absence of politics? How
novel!
But the real trouble is that
as a nation we've run out of
time. Every day 14,000 more
people lose their health insur-
ance. Obama, although too
laid-back about it, is right to
argue the status quo is unsus-
tainable. Some form of health
care reform has to be tackled
and passed this year or, politi-
cally, it will die.
As legislators head home 'for
the August recess, they will
be taking the temperature on
health care reform from their
constituents. The problem will
be that many voters, satisfied
enough with their own insur-
ance, are wary about change.
In Obama's words, they favor -
the devil they know over the
devil they don't know. He has
to be more forceful and forth-
coming about what he wants.
This autumn will be crucial.
If Congress kicks the can
down the road and fails to
come up with bipartisan solu-
tions, that road may lead to
bankruptcy.

New Taser stun gun delivers 3 shocks


By AMANDA LEE MYERS
Associated Press

FOUNTAIN HILLS,
Arizona - Taser
International unveiled its
first new stun gun since
2003 on Monday, a device
that can shock three people
without being reloaded.
Older Taser stun guns, in
use by 14,200 law enforce-
ment agencies throughout
the United States, have to
be reloaded after one shot,
which can be a problem for
an officer who has missed a
target or has more than one
suspect to subdue.
Taser CEO Rick Smith
and his brother, Chairman
Tom Smith, unveiled the
new device to hundreds
of law enforcement offi-
cers and distributors at
the Scottsdale-based com-
pany's annual conference.
They stood on stage, each
holding two new Tasers,
and fired six rounds a piece
at metal targets to whoops
and applause.
"This is as big a step as
when firearms went from a
muzzle loader to the revolv-
er," Rick Smith said later.
"If I was a cop I'd want to
carry one."


The new stun gun costs
$1,799, compared with $799
for the older model, though
Smith said law enforcement
agencies could trade in
their older ones for credits
worth $300-$800.
He said the device will be
available to law enforcement
agencies in late August.
Officers at the conference
will receive free ones pro-
vided they pass an operat-
ing test.
Smith said he believes
the device will become the
new standard for police
officers who want greater
tactical abilities and allows
for greater accountability
because it has sensors that
measure each discharge;
that data can then be down-
loaded and analyzed.
He said the devices are in
line the costs of other law
enforcement tools, and that
Taser hopes law enforce-
ment agencies can tap tap
federal stimulus funds.
Like the older models,
the new stun gun shoots
two barbed wires that deliv-
er about 6 watts of electrical
current for several seconds,
temporarily immobilizing
people from a distance.
The device, which can hit


people up to 35 feet away,
looks like a bulky gun
but weighs less than two
pounds. It's about 2.5 inch-
es wide and seven inches
tall.
While the device can be
used against three people, it
can target the same person
more than once. Smith said
each barb would deliver a
separate' shock.
Human rights groups
contend Tasers cause heart
attacks. Taser spokes-
man Steve Tuttle said the
company has won 96 of 97
wrongful-death and prod-
uct liability lawsuits filed
against it and is appealing
after being found 15 per-
cent responsible in the dne
suit it lost.
Amnesty International
'says 351 people in the
U.S. died after they were
shocked with Tasers, and
that in 50 of those cases,
medical examiners cited a
link between Taser shocks
and death.
Curt Goering, depu-
ty executive director of
Amnesty International USA,
said while he hasn't been
able to fully examine the
new mode Taser, it raises
concerns.


"The new models will
likely fuel the contro-
versy about the potential
lethality or abuse because
there's potential for repeat
Tasings," he said.
He said his organiza-
tion generally supports the
development of non-lethal
force for police agencies
but claims officers are using
Tasers far too often. "The
threshold for use of force
is often lower, so police are
using these weapons in situ-
ations where the operation
of a firearm would never be
justified," he said.
Smith said Tasers are
saving the lives of suspects
across the country and
saving police departments
money that would have
gone for workers' compen-
sation for injured officers
and litigation stemming
from the use of firearms.
"It's just one of those
things, that unfortunately,
Amnesty is more about
what they're against than
what they're for," he said.
"We are the new technol-
ogy - it's splashy because
of the electricity, you can
make it scary. And I'm real-
ly disappointed they haven't
taken a more constructive
approach."

Scientists try to put brakes on schizophrenia


By MALCOLM RITTER
AP Science Writer
PORTLAND, Maine
he was sociable
and happy in
high school. But
in college that
S changed abruptly:
Depressed and withdrawn,
some days she couldn't get
out of bed.
And that wasn't all.
"I had really odd
thoughts," recalled the
woman, now 21, who asked
that her name not be used.
While walking across
campus at the University
of Southern Maine, "some-
times I'd feel like people
were just right behind me
(who might) jump me or
something."
She knew it wasn't true,
but she couldn't shake the
feeling.
Sometimes, while driv-
ing, she saw imaginary,
shadowy people on the
sidewalk. And now and
then, out of nowhere, there
would be a woman's voice
in her ear during, class, or
random soft noises like
. knocking or the fizzy hiss
of a newly opened soda
can.
When she visited the
university health service
and talked about feel-
ing depressed, a nurse
practitioner saw another
problem: a possible case of
schizophrenia in the mak-
ing.
This schizophrenia "pro-
drome" - the early signs
- involves a troubled
mental state usually found
in teens and young adults.
It can lead to psychosis,
the loss of touch with real-
ity that marks not only
schizophrenia, but also
some forms of depression
or manic-depression. The
prodrome can linger for
weeks, or years, before
it gives way to psychosis'
- or mysteriously disap-


pears without a trace.
Researchers have known
about this warning phase
for decades, but they're
still working on how to
treat it. Now they're calling
in tools like brain scans,
DNA studies and hormone
research to dig into its
biology. They hope that
will reveal new ways to
detect who's on the road to
psychosis and to stop that
progression.
In the prodrome, people
can see and hear imagi-
nary things or have odd
thoughts. But significantly,
they understand these
experiences are just illu-
sions, or they have a rea-
sonable explanation.
In contrast, people with
psychosis firmly cling to
unreasonable explanations
instead. When someone
interprets an odd halo of
light over a bedroom door-
way as an urgent message
from a dead relative, "that's
when they have gone over
to the psychotic side," said
Dr. Thomas McGlashan, a
Yale University psychiatry
professor.
Some early signs of
the prodrome are subtle.
"Sometimes kids will (say)
light seems different," and
windows are too bright,
said Ann Lovegren Conley,
the family nurse practitio-
ner at USM who spotted
apparent prodromal symp-
toms in the student on her
campus.
That can signal "this
is not just typical depres-
sion or situational stress,"
Conley said. "There's
something more here."
After hearing the
student's story, Conley
put her in touch with the
Portland Identification
and Early Referral pro-
gram, called PIER, one
of about 20 clinics in the
United States that focus on
treating prodrome cases.
PIER has trained her and

of Southern Maine, examines a patient on the university's Portland, Maine campus. Conley

that can lead to schizophrenia.

thousands of other school
nurses and counselors,
pediatricians and others in
greater Portland in how to
spot them.
PIER emphasizes pon-
drug therapies for its
patients, ages 12 to 25,
although about thlee-quar-
ters of them take anti-psy-
chotic medication.
The treatment regimen
includes group meetings in
which patients and families
brainstorm about handling
the condition's day-to-day
stresses. It also focuses


on keeping patients in
school and in touch with
their families and social
networks.
With a grant from the
Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation, the PIER
approach is also being
tried in California, Oregon,
Michigan and New York.
Even before treatment
begins, a patient's encoun-
ter with someone who
understands can be dra-
matic. McGlashan recalled
that one young woman at
the Yale clinic burst into


tears when being asked
about symptoms, explain-
ing, "I thought I was the
only person in the world
who was having these.
experiences."
Or, when asked if
they've felt like the televi-
sion was speaking to them
personally, young clients
may reply, "How did you
know?" McGlashan said.
Studying the schizophre-
nia prodrome has been
tough for the small but
growing group of research-
ers in the area, because


the condition is relatively
uncommon. A typical com-
munity may get only one
new case per 10,000 people -
each year, and only a frac-
tion of those people would
end up in a research study.
A federally funded proj-
ect kicked into gear this
year to uncover biological
signals that will help iden-
tify people headed toward
psychosis. There's already
early evidence, for exam-
ple, that combining brain
scans with a standardized .
interview can greatly help,'.
said Tyrone Cannon of the K
University of California,
Los Angeles.
Such research should
also point the way to better
treatments, by exposing
the biological roots of psy-
chosis, Cannon said. He's
the principal investigator of
the project, which is being
carried out at several medi-
cal centers.
When it comes to treat-
ing the prodrome, scien-
tists say they have some
promising approaches but
no firmly proven treat-
ments to prevent psychosis
from appearing.
Low doses of anti-psy-
s chotic drugs dampen
symptoms. But its not
clear whether those drugs
can actually prevent psy-
chosis. Side effects like
serious weight gain are a
problem, especially since
many treated patients
would never have devel-
oped psychosis anyway. .
What's more, the weight
gain can turn young people
away from anti-psychotic
drugs, even if they move
on to become psychotic
and clearly need them.
Researchers are finding
promise in psychosocial
treatments, like those
aimed at helping patients
learn to manage stresses
in their lives or understand
and interpret their symp-
toms.


Swine flu could hit 40 percent in U.S. IV tube chemical linked


By MIKE STOBBE
AP Medical Writer
ATLANTA - In a dis-
turbing hew projection,
health officials say up to 40
percent of Americans could
get swine flu this year and
next and several hundred
thousand could die without
a successful vaccine cam-
paign and other measures.
The estimates by the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention hre roughly
twice the number of those
who catch flu in a normal
season and add greater
weight to hurried efforts to
get a new vaccine ready for
the fall flu season.
Swine flu has already hit
the United States harder
than any other nation, but
it has struck something of
a glancing blow that's more
surprising than devastat-
ing. The virus. has killed
about 300 Americans and
experts believe it has sick-
ened more than 1 million,
comparable to a seasonal
flu with the weird ability
to keep spreading in the
summer.
Health officials say flu
cases may explode in the
fall, when schools open and
become germ factories, and
the new estimates drama-
tize the need to have vac-

cines and other measures
in place.
A world health official
said �the first vaccines are
expected in September and
October. The United States
expects to begin testing on
some volunteers in August,
with 160 million doses ready
in October.
The CDC came up with
the new projections for the
virus' spread last month,
but it was first disclosed in
an interview this week with
The Associated Press.
The estimates are based
on a flu pandemic from
1957, which killed nearly
70,000 in the United States
but was not as severe as
the infamous Spanish flu
pandemic of 1918-19. The
number of deaths and ill-

that 90,000 to several hundred thousand Americans could die
over two years if a swine flu vaccine and other steps don't work.

nesses from the new swine
flu virus would drop if the
pandemic peters out or if
efforts to slow its spread
are successful, said CDC
spokesman Tom Skinner.
"Hopefully, mitigation
efforts will have a big impact
on future cases," he said.
Besides pushing flu shots,
health officials might urge
measures such as avoiding
crowded places, handwash-
ing, cough covering and
timely use of medicines like
Tamiflu.
Because so many more
people are expected to
catch the, new flu, the num-

ber of deaths over two years
could range from 90,000 to,
several hundred thousand,
the CDC calculated. Again,
that is if a new vaccine and
other efforts fail.
In a normal flu sea-
son, about 36,000 people
die from flu and its com-
plications, according to
the, American Medical
Association. That too is an
estimate, because death
certificates don't typically
list flu as a cause of death.
Instead, they attribute a
fatality to pneumonia or
other complications.

President Barack Obama welcomes China's Vice Premier Wang Qishan (center) and State Councilor Dai Bingguo (far left) as
he opens the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue in Washington on Monday. The meetings are expected to expose
sharp differences on trade and soaring U.S. budget deficits.


Obama: U.S., China must cooperate


By MARTIN CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON -
President Barack Obama,
opening two days of high-
level talks with China, said.
the discussions could lay
the groundwork for a new
era of "sustained coopera-
tion, not confrontation" in a
relationship likely to shape
the 21st century.
Obama said that
Washington and Beijing
needed to forge closer ties
to address a host of chal-
lenges from lifting the glob-
al economy out of a deep
recession to nuclear prolif-
eration and global climate
change.
"I believe that we are
poised to make steady prog-
ress on some of the most
important issues of our
times," the president told
diplomats from both coun-
tries assembled in the vast
hall of the Ronald Reagan
Building.
Obama said he was under
"no illusions that the United
States and China will agree
on every issue" but he


said closer cooperation in
important areas was critical
for the world.
"Therelationshipbetween
the United States and China
will shape the 21st century,
which makes it as important
as any bilateral relationship
in the world," Obama said.
The discussions in
Washington represent the
continuation of a dialogue
begun by the Bush admin-
istration, which focused on
economic tensions between
the two nations. Obama
chose to expand the talks
to include foreign policy
issues as well as economic
disputes over trade and cur-
rency values.
Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton, welcom-
ing the Chinese, said the
two nations were "laying
brick by brick the founda-
tion for a stronger relation-
ship."
Treasury Secretary
Timothy Geithner and Vice
Premier Wang Qishan,
China's top economic poli-
cymaker, both spoke of
hopeful signs that the glob-
al economy was beginning


to emerge from its worst
financial crisis since the
Great Depression.
Geithner said that the so
far successful efforts of the
two economic superpowers
to move quickly to deal with
the downturns with massive
stimulus programs marked
a historic turning point in
the relationship of the two
nations.
Speaking through a trans-
lator, Wang said that "at
present the world economy
is at a critical moment of
moving out of crisis and
toward recovery."
State Councilor Dai
Bingguo said that the two
countries were trying
to build better relations
despite their very different
social systems, cultures,
ideologies and histories.
"We are actually all in
the same big boat that has
been hit by fierce wind and
huge waves," Dai said of
the global economic and
other crises.
Obama said that the
United States and China
have a shared interest in
clean and secure energy


sources.
As the world's largest
energy consumers, Obama
said that neither country
profits from a dependence
on foreign oil. He also said
neither country will be able
to combat climate change
unless they work together.
However, the discussions
this week were not expected
to bridge wide differences
between the two nations on
climate change and officials
cautioned against expecting
any major breakthroughs
in other areas either. U.S.
officials said they hoped the
talks would set a positive
framework for future talks.
The administration did
praise China for the help it
has provided in the nuclear
standoff with North Korea.
With the global economy
trying to emerge from a
deep recession, the United
States and China have enor-
mous stakes in resolving
tensions in such areas as
America's huge trade deficit
with China and the Chinese
government's unease over
America's soaring budget
deficits.


Police: Race not mentioned in Gates 911 call


GOP Sen. Sessions to

oppose Sotomayor


By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS
Associated Press

WASHINGTON - The
senior Republican on the
Senate Judiciary Committee
said Monday he'll vote
against Supreme Court
nominee Sonia Sotomayor,
siding with his party's lead-
ers against the judge who's
on a fast track to becoming
the first Hispanic justice.
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.,
weighed in on President
Barack Obama's first high
court choice the day before
his panel is scheduled to vote
on her nothination. Her con-


firmation by the full Senate
- with at least a handful
of GOP votes - is virtually
certain by next week.
He said he didn't believe
she has the "deep-rooted
convictions necessary to
resist the siren call of judi-
cial activism" when she joins
the nation's highest court.
He cited her rulings on
property and gun rights, as
well as a much-discussed
rejection of a reverse dis-
crimination claim by white
firefighters, -as examples of
decisions that violated the
Constitution and reflected
"liberal political thought."

BOSTON - The 911
caller who reported a pos-
sible break-in at the home
of black Harvard scholar
Henry Louis-Gates Jr. did
not mention race in the call,
according to a statement
issued by her attorney and
backed up by Cambridge
Police Commissioner
Robert Haas.
Lucia Whalen placed
the 911 call July 16, saying
she saw two men on Gates'
front porch who appeared
to be trying to force open
the front door. The call
led to the arrest of Gates
by Cambridge police on- a
disorderly conduct charge,
and a resulting national
debate about racial profil-
ing.
In the statement issued
Sunday by attorney Wendy
Murphy, Whalen - who
has not spoken publicly -
said she only saw the backs
of the two men and did
not know their race when
she made the call. Murphy
said Whalen, who works
nearby, called because she
had been aware of recent
break-ins in the area and
wanted to correct "misin-
formation" suggesting that

Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., during a book signing
moments before the screening of a segment of the Spike Lee
documentary called 'When the Levees Broke: A Requiem.in
Four Acts,' at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown, Mass.,
on Martha's Vineyard.


she placed the call because
the men on the porch were
black.
. "Contrary to published
reports that a'white woman'
called 911 and reported see-
ing 'two black men' trying


to gain entry into Mr. Gates
home, the woman, who has
olive colored skin and is
of Portuguese descent, told
the 911 operator that she
observed 'two men' at the
home," Murphy's statement


read.
Murphy said Whalen has
been very upset by news
reports she believes have
unfairly depicted her as a
racist.
"She doesn't live in the
area. She is by no means
the entitled white neigh-
bor ... That has been the
theme in the blogs and the
implication in some of the
mainstream news media,"
Murphy said in a phone
interview Monday.
"She didn't know their
race, and it's very clear that
she called not because of
what they looked like but
because of what they were
doing."
Haas said Whalen, after
questioning by the dis-
patcher during the 911 call,
speculated that one of the
men - who turned out to
be Gates and a black car
service driver - may have
been Hispanic.
"It was very clear that she
wasn't sure what the men's
race was," Haas said in an
interview with The Boston
Globe Sunday night.
The 911 tapes have not
yet been made public, but
Haas has said he expected
some version of the tapes to
be released within the next
few days.

7 smart places to stash your cash.


Home safe sales smash 60 year record due to new banking worries I

By Aaron Robinson to have all your eggs in one basket, for your money to stay safe in the N SHOULD HAVE. . --'q
Universe Mei Syndca'tea9y d asrvinU din mll1 mtin ,


So you're still hiding money under
the mattress or in the bread box?
Well, you're not alone.
Ever since financial institutions have
been dropping like flies, millions of
Americans have stopped relying solely
on their banks.
Are banks safe? Well maybe. But
with so much to lose, here are 7 things
we can consider to protect the little we
have left.
1. Be sure your institution is insured.
If you're not sure if your bank is
FDIC insured find out or get your
money out.
Insured or not, the fact is this. The
FDIC has only enough cash on hand to
cover about 2% of nationwide deposits.
Pretty scary stuff, so it's not always wise


z. Oiart anai g Urow a coln co UIIectiuon.
Coin collections are tangible assets
that will always keep their face value,
instead of just owning stocks that could
depreciate or lose you money.
If times ever get really tough, U.S.
Gov't coins will always bail you out. A
good safety net is to insist on only never-
circulated U.S. Gov't issued coins.
3. Keep cash safe at home.
Cash is King. Believe it, but remem-
ber not to keep it in a thief's favor-
ite spot; like in the bread box, or the
mattress.
These will never have the protec-
tion that a quality home safe can pro-
vide to safeguard your money. See #7
for more.
4. US Savings Bonds, an old favorite.
U.S. Savings Bonds are an easy way


LULU re.
However, if lost or stolen they could
be difficult to replace unless the serial
number was kept in a safe place. But
'be careful because they must now be
held for at least 1 year before cashing
them in.
5. Gold and silver still shine.
If you own gold or silver, great, hold
on to it. But if you don't, one of your
best bets is to try to get as many U.S.
Gov't issued gold and silver coins as you
can. Due to the recent demand, the U.S.
Mint had to halt the production of some
of their most valued gold coins.
6. Hold on to real estate.
With interest rates at historic all-
time lows the market is sure to recover
and property values will once again
bounce back. So those who hold on to

IN A SAFE:

their homes for the long term will likely
reap the benefits of these investments.
7. Buy a good safe.
Home safes become an absolute ne-
cessity during economic turmoil.
If you already have one make sure it's
big enough and heavy enough to foil a
thief. It will also keep nosy relatives out
of your business.
A good safe made from solid steel con-
struction can cost anywhere from $300


to over a thousand dollars. But, because.
of the huge spike in recent sales, safes
may be hard to come by.
But if you can find a good one, you'll:
have your own Fort Knox to keep every-
thing safe including official documents,:
coin collections, currency, U.S. Savings-
Bonds, guns, gold, silver, deeds, wills-
and other legal papers.
With all this you'll be much safer, jitst:
in case your bank is the next to fail. 0: -


Free armored safes being doled out to public


Armored Safe giveaway ends public worry for those who rush

brilliant, never-circulated U.S. Gov't issued coins that will never


ByShawn Oyler
Universal-Media Syndicate

UMS - Imagine finally getting some-
thing that will never lose its value.
Sounds too good to be true?
Well, it's true and word is quickly
spreading about the free handout of
Armored Safes that are being stocked
full of inever-circulated U.S. Gov't is-
sued coins and currency that by law
will never be minted again.
These free Armored Safes are being
turned over to the general public who
make it in time to beat the order dead-
line for their share of the hoard of bril-
liant, never-circulated U.S. Gov't coins
and currency before the 72 hour shutoff.
"The frantic demand for U.S. Gov't coins
has caused the US. Mint* to officially halt
the sale of many of its most valuable coins,"
said lead consultant for the World Reserve
Thomas C. Harris, Retired Deputy Direc-
tor of the U.S. Treasury Bureau of Engrav-
ing and Printing
"Today, the World Reserve began to
release this hoard of U.S. Gov't coins
and currency in a free Armored Safe to
the general public. Having valuable U.S.
Gov't coins serves as an economic life
raft. This valuable Collection will never,
never, never lose its face value. You will
always have something worth a lot of
money," said Harris.
Here's the best part, alpong the U.S.
Gov't issued coins and currency that
everyone gets is the highly sought after
American Eagle 1-ounce silver bullion
coin made from solid .999 fine silver, 250
of the first liberty engraved Westward
Journey Nickels, a banker's stack of
historic $2 bills and a full vault tube of
the Presidential Golden Dollar Coins.
Here's why that is so important. Just
think if you would have saved the same
number of never-circulated Eisen-
hower Dollar coins from 1974. Remark-
ably, they. would now be worth 500%
more in collector value.
This gives you a hint that these are
not the same grade as the coins found
in loose change, or from the local bank.
In fact, these coins remain in brilliant,
never-circulated condition if left sealed
and untouched.
U.S. Gov't Savings Bonds used to be
a favorite way to keep money safe and
popular to give as gifts. But no one can.
take a Savings Bond and go'buy some-
thing with it.
That's why this hoard of valuable
coins gives everyone the comfort of hav-
ing full control of their money. No mat-
ter what, they will never lose their

in the hoard could be used to buy any-
thing. But unless it is a good reason, only
a fool would do that because this per-
sonal hoard of money is already worth
so much more in collector value.
"So many people are buying up these
coins. Even for those people who give
away some of their collection as gifts,
they are keeping the Armored Safe for
themselves," laid Robert Anthony, bi-
rector of the private World Reserve,
Monetary Exchange.
"This Safe is one of the absolute best
places to keep valuables and important
papers. People will now have a safe
place to store their wills, guns, jewelry,
antiques, keys, coins and even cash,"
Anthony said.
"The only problem the. Safe creates
is when it's time to read your Will. You
need to make sure everyone knows who
you want to leave it to," he said.
"When Americans get their hands on
this Safe and their, very own personal
hoard of U.S. Gov't Coins, they'll really,
do a double take. Everyone will feel like
they just won the lottery," he said. E

I . Police: 55 dead in Nigeria attacks


U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates (left) shares a laugh with Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu (right) during a luncheon in Jerusalem on Monday. Israel dug in its heels
Monday in a disagreement with the United States over a potential military strike to thwart
Iran's progress toward a possible nuclear weapon, as the visiting American defense chief
urged patience.

Israel: No options off table on Iran


By ANNE GEARAN
AP National Security Writer

JERUSALEM - Israel
insisted Monday it will do
whatever it must to stop
Iran from getting a nuclear
weapon, even as the visiting
U.S. defense chief promised
tougher international sanc-
tions if Tehran, spurns an
offer of talks.
U.S. Defense Secretary
Robert Gates tried to reas-
sure Israeli leaders that
President Barack Obama
is not naive, and he said
the offer to bargain with
Iran isn't good indefinitely.
After meeting with Gates,
Israeli Defense Minister
Ehud Barak suggested his
country's patience is lim-
ited, saying - three times
That Israel would not rule
out any response.
"We clearlybelievethatno
option should be removed
from the table," Barak said,
referring to the unstated
possibility that Israel might
launch a pre-emptive attack
to thwart Irah<, nuclear
dc veloph - -- --'Y'


Differences between
Israel and the U.S. over
how to handle a looming
Iranian nuclear threat domi-
nated Gates' brief stop in
Jerusalem. And later, in
neighboring Jordan, Gates
was blunt in describing
what Iran might expect if
it refuses the offer of inter-
national arms control talks
this year, or walks away
from Obama's wider offer
of better relations with.
Washington.
"If the engagement pro-
cess is not successful, the
United States is prepared
to press for significant addi-
tional sanctions," Gates
said. He added that the
United States would try to
abandon the current poli-
cy of gradual international
pressure, where layers of
generally mild sanctions
have been added as each
time Iran flouted interna-
tional demands. ,
."We would try 'to. get
international support for
a much tougher position."
Gates said. 'He adtledz;'Our
trope T"rtiWt t 'r iIran


would respond to the presi-
dent's outstretched hand in
a positive and constructive
way, but we'll see."
While the United States
also reserves the right to
use force if need be, the
Obama administration is
playing down that possibil-
ity while it tries to draw
Iran into talks. Gates said
Washington still hopes
to have an initial answer
in the fall about negotia-
tions.
"The timetable the presi-
dent laid out still seems to
be viable and does not sig-
nificantly raise the risks to
anybody," Gates said.
Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu has
said he hopes to worlY out
policy disagreements !with
the U.S. during a series of
meetings this week with
high-profile American
envoys. Gates was the sec-
ond in a parade of Americans
coming to Israel this week,
and the only one for whom
Israel's expansion of Jewish
(- ttliments was not a pri-
mn:tr-tnpic.

ABUJA, Nigeria--Radical
Islamist militants opposed
to Western-style education
in Nigeria launched attacks
on police in three northern
towns Monday, expanding
a campaign of violence that
has killed at least 55 people
so far, police and witnesses
said.
Trouble began Sunday
when militants attacked a
police station in the north-
ern city of Bauchi, leaving
dozens dead in gunbat-
ties with police. Then on
Monday, militants launched
a new wave of attacks in
three more states, target-
ing the towns of Maiduguri,
Damaturu, Wudil in the pre-
dominantly Muslim north,
police and residents said.
National police chief
Ogbonnaya Onovo put the
overall toll at 55 dead at
least - 50 militants and five


police.
Nigeria has been spo-
radically wracked by sectar-
ian clashes since 12 of the
country's 36 states began
adopting Islamic law, or
Shariah, in the predomi-
nantly Muslim north in
1999.
Little is known about the
latest violence,- however.
Residents in the north are
referring to the Islamists
as "Boko Hararm," which
means "western education
is sin" in the local Hausa
dialect. National police
c'hii-f Ogbonnaya Onovo
referred to the militants as
Taliban, apparently because
of their radically conserva-
tive views.. The group has
no known links to Taliban
fighters in Afghanistan.
A local' newspaper, Daily
Trust, quoted the leader
of the Islamic sect, Ustaz
Mohammed Yusuf, as say-
ing his followers are ready to
die to ensure the institution


of a strict Islamic society.
"Democracy and (the)
current system of educa-
tion must be changed, oth-
erwise this war that is yet
to start would continue for
long," he said.
Onovo vowed that police
would arrest the group's
leaders.
"This a fanatical organi-
zation that is anti-govern-
ment, anti-people. We don't
know what their aims are
yet; we are out to identify
and arrest their leaders and
also destroy their enclaves,
wherever they are," Onovo
said.
In Damaturu, capital
of Yobe state, militants
bombed a police station,
said national police spokes-
man Emmanuel Ojukwu.
In Kano state's Wudil
district, Islamic militants
attacked another police
station, according to local
police spokesman Baba
Muhammad in Kano.

Coach highlights
ACC's opening of
media days.
By JOEDY McCREARY
Associated Press
GREENSBORO, N.C.
- Bobby Bowden is
approaching his 80th birth-
day, and he's asking for
quite the present.
The soon-to-be octoge-
narian hopes to hang on to
the 14 victories the NCAA:
wants to remove from his
record due to an academic
cheating scandal.,
"I'm still thinking they'll
come to their senses," the
Florida State coach said
Monday with a laugh dur-
ing the Atlantic Coast
Conference's media days.
The 79-year-old Bowden
continued to express
his desire to remain in a
chase with Penn State's
Joe Paterno to become the
winningest coach in major
college football. Bowden
enters his 34th season
in Tallahassee with 382
career wins - one fewer
than Paterno.
"They're just going to
kill a good dadgum com-
petition if they take those
games away," Bowden
said. Reporters, he added,
"don't have a darned thing
to write about if they take
those games away. They
might do it. I hope they
don't."

Quarterback free
to sign with team

By BARRY WILNER

NEW YORK - Michael
Vick is back in the NFL.
Now all he needs is a team
to play for.
Vick, free after serving
18 months in prison for
running a dogfighting ring,
was reinstated with condi-
tions by NFL commissioner
Roger Goodell on Monday.
He could participate in reg-
ular-season games as early
as October.

pute is whether the NCAA
should take wins from
Bowden and other coach-
es and athletes who had
no role in a scandal that
involved 61 athletes who
allegedly cheated on an
online music history test

Florida State filed a 20-
page appeal earlier this
month, arguing that the

ings and can play in the
final two preseason games
- if he can find a team that
will sign him. A number
of teams have already said
they would not.
Once the season begins,
Vick may participate in
all team activities except
games, and Goodell said he
would consider Vick for full
reinstatement by Week 6
(Oct. 18-19) at the latest.
Goodell suspended Vick
indefinitely in August 2007
after the former Atlanta
Falcons quarterback admit-
ted bankrolling a dogfight-
ing operation on his prop-
erty in Virginia. At the time,
Goodell said Vick must
show remorse before he
would consider reinstating
him.
"I accept that you are sin-


cere when you say that you
want to, and will, turn your
life around, and that you
intend to.be a positive role
model for others," Goodell
said in his letter to Vick. "I
am prepared to offer you
that opportunity. Whether
you succeed is entirely in
your hands."
"Needless to say, your
margin for error is extreme-
ly limited," the letter said. "I
urge you to take full advan-
tage of the resources avail-
able to support you and to
dedicate yourself to rebuild-
ing your life and your career.
If you do this, the NFL will
support you."
Goodell said he spoke to

mer players and coaches

chance to compete in the
ASA ,National Softball

tournament featuring
nearly 150 of the nation's

While Douglass and

Douglass and Pilkington

on Monday against the
Carona Angels in an extra

After a 10-3 loss, the

the tournament remained

'We played a really good

Contador wins Tour


Armstrong caps
off impressive
return to France.
By JAMEY KEATEN
Associated Press
PARIS - Lance
Armstrong's children were
dressed in yellow. He was
not.
When the seven-time
Tour de France champion
returned to the Tour podi-
um Sunday, his family was
there. His fans were there.
And so was rival and team-
mate Alberto Contador -
wearing the coveted yellow
jersey.
Four years after his sev-
enth Tour win, Armstrong
capped his return with an
impressive third-place fin-
ish.


Contador won the Tour
for a second time Sunday,
and Mark Cavendish of
Britain collected his sixth
stage win of this year's
Tour in a sprint after the
101.9-mile course ride from
Montereau-Fault-Yonne to
the Champs-Elysees.
Over nearly 3,500 kilome-
ters and 21 stages of racing
over three weeks, Contador
repelled many challenges
in the mountains, excelled
in the two time-trials - win-
ning a pivotal race against
the clock in the 18th stage
- and won the first Alpine
stage.
Apdy Schleck of
Luxembourg, Contador's
biggest rival among title
contenders in the moun-
tains, was second overall.

VICK: Expresses gratitude to Goodell


Continued From Page 1B


as he weighed his decision
and that the responses were
"very mixed."
"I do recognize that some
will clever forgive him for
what he did," Goodell said;
"I hope that the public will
have a chance to understand
his position as I have."
Vick, once the highest-
paid player in the league,
said he was grateful for a
second chance.
"I would like to express
my sincere gratitude and
appreciation to commission-
er Goodell for allowing me to
be readmitted to the National
Football League," Vick said
in a statement released by
his agent, Joel Segal. "I fully
understand that playing foot-
ball in the NFL is a privilege,
not a right, and I am truly
thankful for the opportunity
I have been given.
"As you can imagine, the
last two years have given


me time to re-evaluate my
life, mature as an individual
and fully understand the
terrible mistakes I have
made in the past and what
type of life I must lead mov-
ing forward," he said.
The announcement came
after a busy first week of
freedom for Vick, who
met with .union leaders
and Goodell on consecu-
tive days last week. His
23-month federal sentence
ended when an electronic
monitor was removed from
his ankle on July 20 at his
home in Hampton, Va.
He met with DeMaurice
Smith, executive direc-
tor of the NFL Players
Association, last Tuesday
and, on Wednesday, with
Goodell at a security firm in
Allendale, N.J.
Goodell said Vick agreed
to undergo psychiatric test-
ing, which determined that


he was capable of returning
to the NFL but needed con-
tinuing counseling.
He .said keeping Vick
from playing at the start of
the regularseason wasn't a
form of punishment, but a
chance for the quarterback
to gradually transition back
into the league.
"I have thought about
every alternative, but I
think this gives him the
best, chance for success,".
Goodell said. "We are not
looking for failure here. We
are looking to see a young
man succeed."
But Vick's issues are far
from over and he needs a
team to call his own. So
far, the owners of the New
York Giants, Jets and Dallas
Cowboys have said they had
no interest in the 29-year-
old quarterback. Neither do
the Falcons, who officially
released Vick in June.

program should lose victo-
ries, the individual records
of coaches and players
should not suffer.
"I'm going to tell (the
school) to fight like you-
know-what," Bowden said.
"I'mr going to tell them
to fight it (with) all we're
worth, and I'd fight it if I
could, but there's nothing I
can do. But if we don't win
it, I'll accept it.
"As soon as we spotted
(cheating), we turned our-
selves in (and) suspended


them immediately," he
added. "Now, are they going
to open up a can of worms
here? Does that mean when
'So-and-So State' has a kid,
middle of the season, gets
caught cheating, they found
out he cheated three weeks
ago, they've got to go back
and forfeit all those games
he played in? ... That'll hap-
pen at every school in the
United States of America."
Paterno said Monday at
the Big Ten media day it was
"ridiculous" that the NCAA


was considering stripping'
Bowden of the victories.
"Bobby played with what
he had and 'he won with
what he had," Paterno said.
"It brothers me a little :bit
that the NCAA, would use
him almost as a scapegoat
for all of things that weht
on at Florida State. ...' I
hope they let him keep his
wins."
Some of Bowden's ACC
rivals weren't sure what to
make of the veteran coach's
sticky situation.

OAKVILLE,. Ontario

Canadian Open on Monday
for his first PGA Tour vic-
tory, beating Retief Goosen

After Green missed a 12-

par try slid right, ending
the first Monday finish in

"I'm realistic, I did every-
thing I could," Armstrong
said before the final stage.
"For me, and even more
for my kids, it's probably
a healthy thing for them
to see, because they saw
their dad that never' lost,
and the kids in their class
(say) 'your dad never loses,'
so it's good for them to see
dad get third and still be
cool with that and still be
happy."
Contador, the 2007 cham-
pion, also had to battle a
rearguard action within his
Astana team, where the-
comeback of Armstrong, to
the Tour after 3M years of
retirement raised questions
about whb would be the
team leader.

DEAR ABBY


Woman discovers the truth

in man's texts to ex-wife


DEAR ABBY: "Ralph"
and I have been married two
years. Two nights ago we had
an argument, and he got mad
and left. He was gone three
hours. When he returned
he screamed at me for what
seemed like an hour. Finally,
he went to bed.
I looked through his phone
and found several text mes-
sages to his ex-wife. One said
he still loves her. So I went
through his e-mail and found
more correspondence. When I
woke Ralph up and confronted
him, the first thing out of his
rhouth was her name.
They have an 18-year-old
daughter and have been di-
vorced for 13 years. To top it
off, she's married and preg-
nant.
Ralph swears he doesn't
know why he was texting her,
that he doesn't love her and
that the e-mails were about a
job.
Abby, I thought we had a
happy marriage. I'm crushed,
and my whole world is falling
apart. My husband obviously
has feelings for his first wife
(I'm No. 3) and is thinking
about her. He swears over and
over that I'm the love of his
life, and he will spend the rest
of his life proving it to me. Is
it time to throw in the towel? -
HEARTBROKEN IN MON-
TANA
DEAR HEARTBROKEN:
If you hadn't already smelled a
rat, you wouldn't have checked
his cell phone history and com-
puter. The text messages you

discovered are explicit proof
that your husband isn't being
honest with you.
For many wives this would
be the time to cut their losses.
But if you love him and are
willing to risk giving him one
more 'chance, the two of you
need to consult a licensed mar-
riage and family therapist. You
have little to lose by giving it a
try, and it's possible that your
husband really is contrite - but
keep your eyes wide open.
DEAR ABBY: I am a non-
drinker. I don't like the taste of
alcohol, and I prefer to remain
sober.
Why is such a big deal
made about alcohol and who's
drinking? I attended a friend's
birthday luncheon, and she
apologized to the group for
NOT drinking, saying she'd
had enough partying the night
before. Another time I went to
a bar with a boyfriend to see a
band perform. His friends - all
of them "buzzed," by the way
- asked me repeatedly why. I
Wasn't drinking. This isn't the
only time my choice to abstain
has been questioned and scru-
tinized.
To me it makes no differ-


ence whether it's vodka or wa-
ter in a glass. In a restaurant
that served meat, you wouldn't
question the food choices
of a vegetarian, would you?
Drinkers should mind their
own (beverage) business.
Their concern ought only to
be whether I am social, not
whether I'm imbibing or not.
Thanks, Abby, for letting me
vent. - SOBER IN SCOTI-
SDALE
DEAR SOBER: When a
non-drinker turns down al-
cohol, I suspect it makes the
drinkers either curious or
slightly uncomfortable be-
cause they imagine, in their
"relaxed" state, that they are
being examined - and possi-
bly judged - by someone who
is stone cold sober. As to the
birthday girl who felt she had
to offer an apology or explana-
tion for not drinking, she may
have done it out of concern
that turning down the alcohol
might make the guests feel
less inclined to order it them-
selves.
Readers, there's usually
a good reason why a person
doesn't drink. It can range from
being on a medication where
it's contraindicated, a problem
metabolizing it or an addiction.
So don't question non-drinkers
about their choice, and don't
push the person to have "just
one." You've heard of BYOB?
Well, MYOB.
