Columbia County
man dies at home
after hitting tree.
From staff reports
COLUMBIA CITY - A
Columbia County man, who
was involved in a wreck
less than a mile away from
his home when his truck
struck a traffic sign and a
tree, later died at his home
after losing consciousness,
according to police reports.
James H. Wachob, 65,
died shortly following the
Monday wreck.
The wreck occurred
12:35 p.m. at the intersec-
tion of SW Wester Drive
and Finley Little Lane in
central Columbia County.
According to Florida
Highway Patrol reports,
Wachob . was traveling
southbound on SW Wester
Drive in a 1997 GMC pick-
up truck, where he failed to
stop at the intersection of
SW Finley Little Lane.
Wachob's truck traveled
off the roadway and struck
a traffic sign with the front
of the truck and continued
to travel south before it
struck a tree.
Wachob was taken to his
house, about one-tenth of a
mile from the wreck scene,
by family members. He lost
consciousness soon after
arriving home and shortly
after paramedics arrived
on the scene, he was pro-
nounced dead.
His body has been sent
to the Medical Examiners

A line of about 100 Columbia County residents spill outside the Columbia County Tax Collector's office, into the lobby and
outside of the Columbia County Courthouse Annex building Monday morning. The average waiting time in line was around 46
minutes to an hour to renew license tags before a rate increase today.

renewals flood

By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter. corn
Local motorists
lined the inside
walls, the front
steps and the
drive-through
window of the Columbia
County Tax Collector's
office on Monday, hoping
to renew their tags before
new, higher rates kick in
today.
In addition to the tag
renewals, driver's license
and other motor vehicles
fees are increasing today,
and many Florida jotor-
ists are wondering if now is
the right time for the hike.


Some politicians are blam-
ing the economy for the
increase in fees, many of
which haven't been raised
in more than 20 years.
The fees officially
increased today, but if
a person's birthday fell
before Nov. 30, the indi-
vidual was able to renew
early at the old rate for up
to two years.
Around 100 people
were in line at 11:15 a.m.
Monday to renew their
tags, and the line con-
tinued to grow through-
out the morning. The
crowd spill out of the tax
collector's office, into the
lobby area, and many were
forced to line up on the
steps outside the court-
house annex building.
Many in line said the aver-
age wait time was around


45 minutes to an hour,
although a few said they
Were forced to wait more
than an hour to get into


the office to renew their
license plates.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Because of high demand, Ronnie Brannon, Columbia County
tax collector, issues rain checks for motorists looking to
renew tags Moqday. Recipients of the'rain checks can return
to the office between now.and Sept. 10 to renew tags at the
old price.


One A' down, Niblack continues drive toward perfection


School climbs from
'F' rating in 2003-04 in
major turnaround.
Editor's note: This story is part
of a continuing series spotlighting
Columbia County Schools.
By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com
Niblack Elementary School has


made tremendous gains in recent
years, and the efforts of its staff and
students cumulated in an "A" score
for the 2008-2009 school year.
School officials believe the
school's second "A" score won't
take nearly as long to attain.
. "The first week went real well,
real smooth," Principal William
Murphy said on Monday. "We're
real pleased with how the first week,
went. The students from last year
seemed to fall in line, and the new


students seemed to fitin just right.
I told somebody the other day that
if we had 175 more like that, it'll be
a great year."
Murphy said there were many
changes implemented into getting
the school to it's first "A" rating, a
major turnaround from the school's
"F" score in 2003-2004.
"Mrs. (Narragansett) Smith was
the principal the year before I got
here, and for the seven years she
was here, she established a good


staff and we have a staff that is
dedicated to the children," Murphy
said. "They ... want them to learn,
and put the children's interests
first and that is a very important
part of their educations. The chil-
dren have also worked hard - it
doesn't matter what you do, if they
don't work hard, it doesn't matter.

ers have put in front of them, and

The e-mail, signed by

"This action was a board

Bullard wrote. "At first
this does not sound like
a positive step. However,
considering Jim's continu-

billion in cash and stock,

family of Mickey Mouse and
WALL-E.
Under the deal, which was

Marvel's comic books, TV shows,
.movies and video games amounted
.to "a treasure trove of content." Iger
said the deal would bring'benefits
like the ones Disney got from buying
'Toy Story" creator Pixar Animation
Studios Inc. for $7.4 billion in stock
in 2006.
"The acquisition of Marvel offers
us a similar opportunity to advance
our strategy," Iger said, and "to build
a business that is stronger than the
sum of its parts."

Chest of drawers hoisted aboard space station CHAMBER: New olans


By MARCIA DUNN
AP Aerospace
CAPE CANAVERAL -
Astronauts hitched a giant
chest of drawers to the
international space station.
on Monday that contained a
brand new freezer, sleeping
compartment and treadmill
bearing a TV comedian's
name.
The Italian-built chest
- nicknamed Leonardo, as
in Leonardo da Vinci - was
moved from space shuttle


Discovery via a hefty robot
arm and hoisted onto the
space station.
It's loaded with nearly 8
tons of equipment and sci-
ence experiments for the
orbiting outpost and its six
residents. Much of the gear
is stored in portable racks;
the bedroom is the size of a
phone booth.
. The astronauts will start
unloading everything late
Tuesday afternoon as the
first spacewalk of the mis-
sion gets under way. With


13 people on the linked
shuttle and station, multiple
jobs can be carried out at
the same time.
NASA's brand new $5
million treadmill will be one
of the first items to come
out of Leonardo. It's offi-
cially called the Combined
Operational Load Bearing
External Resistance
Treadmill, or COLBERT
for short.
Comedy Central's
Stephen Colbert ended up
with an exercise machine


named in his honor after he.
won an online vote for chris-
tening rights to a space sta-
tion room. Unwilling to go
with Colbert for the yet-to-
be-launched room, NASA
opted for Tranquility to
commemorate the Apollo
11 moon landing 40 years
ago this summer. The
treadmill was a consolation
prize. It's in pieces and will
be assembled sometime in
September after Discovery
leaves.


TAG: Renewal fees see significant increase today
Continued From Page 1A


"I really don't know why
I waited so long to renew,"
said Bridgette Furnal. "I
told myself last week that
everyone would be trying
to get their tags renewed at
the last minute, and here I
am with everyone else on
the last day."
Columbia County Tax
Collector Ronnie Brannon
said it was unlike anything
he'd ever seen.
Computer issues again
plagued the process early
Monday, forcing Brannon
and staff to begin passing
out rain checks to many of
those in line. Those receiv-
Sing rain checks can return
to the tax collector's office
between now and Sept. 10
to renew their tags at the
old prices. To be able to
renew at that price, the per-


son must have received a
rain check - everyone else
,will have to pay the current
prices, a price that is sub-
stantially higher.
This is the first time the
fees for vehicle registration
has increased since 1985.
Depending on the weight
of the vehicle, the price of
a tag renewal today stands
at $46.65, $57.65, or $71.15,
significantly higher than
the previous price of $28.10,
$36.10, or $46.10.
Tag registration isn't
the only motor vehicle fee
increasing today - driver's
license prices also are ris-
ing. Initial driver licenses
are increasing from $27 to
$48, and six-year renewals
are more than doubling,
increasing from $20 to $48.
The new fees are expect-

well as a state fire marshal.
The cause of the fire has
,not yet been determined,
but the state fire marshal
remained at the scene until
3 a.m. The fire is still under
investigation.
"It took about 12-15 min-
utes to control the blaze,"
Armijo said. "We had to
study our tactics, what
method we were going to
use and decide on the man-
power. The interior team
put the fire out"


Firefighters were able
to contain the fire to the
Fashions 101 building, but
there was minor smoke
damage to the top floor of
the Wild Flower Cafe build-
ing, which is adjacent to
Fashion 101.
"The store (Fashion 101)
received minor fire dam-

significant smoke dam-
age," Armijo said. "I think
there was a total loss to
the. store's inventory due
to the smoke and heat. We


estimated the damage was
up to $260,000."
The building's struc-

Armijo said he believes the
store could be reopened

But others believe it's just
the wrong time to imple-

necessary detail.
"It just doesn't make
sense to start using high-
er fees during a reces-
sion," said local resident
Leonard Thomas. "I under-
stand there hasn't been an
increase in years, and I'm
thankful for that, but dou-
bling the cost now is idiotic,
I think. People don't have
a lot of extra money, and
everyone has to have a new

less money they'll have in
their pockets."

Keep Your Water Heater
Performing Its Best
* Your water heater works hard-
er during the winter months.
Flush it out and remove sedi-
ment buildup, which causes
corrosion, shortens life span
and reduces heating efficien-
cy. Drain several gallons from
the faucet and direct water into
nearby drain.
* Carefully test the water heat-
er's pressure relief valve (Dan-
ger water is HOT) by lifting up
the lever and letting it snap
back. The valve should allow
a burst of hot water into the
drainpipe. If not, call Mangrum
Plumbing to have a new valve
installed.
* Check the temperature set-
ting on your water heater ther-
mostat. Set 120F for optimum
performance.

Just great:

Another

mortgage

debacle

J ust as the economy is
showing hopeful signs
of life and the federal
government is turning a
profit on the early bailout
. money, the country may
get blitzed by a second round
of foreclosures - this time on
coinmercial property instead of
homes.
.. The Wall Street Journal
reports that a large and still-
undetermined chunk of $700
billion in commercial mortgage-
backed securities, CMBS, is
in trouble thanks to a massive
downturn in the commercial
real-estate market
SLike the mortgage bonds
that caused such havoc when
the housing market went south,
commercial mortgages are
packaged up and sold as bonds.
Like homeowners betting that
the value of their house would
keep going up, investors in
CMBS bet that the occupancy,
rents and underlying value
of commercial real estate -
hotels, malls, office buildings,
etc. - would keep rising.
The Journal cites figures say-
ing that of $153 billion in CMBS
loans coming due by the end
of 2012, $100 billion will face
difficulty getting refinanced.
The result could be a freeze in
a major credit market and, with-
outt refinancing, a wave of fore-'
closures that will only further
depress property values.
'The companies that service
CMBS apparently have even
less latitude to unravel the
bonds and renegotiate the loans
than the banks did with home-
mortgage-backed securities.
The result is that even sound
properties could be thrown into
default.
Federal Reserve andt
Treasury officials are working
to head off a crisis in com-
mercial real estate. Regulators
can plausibly argue that they
were blindsided by the size
and speed of the crash in home
prices. No one can say we
didn't see this one coming.

All presidents need 'plausible deniability'


WASHINGTON -
As every school
kid knows, Harry
Truman instituted
the doctrine of ulti-
mate responsibility.
The "buck stops here" became
the symbol of strong.leader-
ship from an Oval Office where
the phrase was prominently
displayed on the presidential
desk. Truman mainly held to
that approach except now and
then when he relied on some-
thing we've come to know as
"plausible deniability," as had
presidents before him.
For those untutored in the
ways of Washington, the policy
simply mean keeping poten-
tially questionable activities
away from direct presidential
involvement so that he can
plausibly deny any knowledge
if things go wrong. More than
one president in the modern
era has escaped serious damage
using this claim. Ronald Reagan,
for instance, escaped personal
harm in the Iran-Contra scandal
through this disclaimer of any
knowledge. John Kennedy also
could blame the CIA for the Bay
of Pigs fiasco, claiming his own
alleged lack of input. That was
plausible enough at the time
although skeptics abounded in
both cases. Richard Nixon tried
to use it, but failed.
One wonders whether Barack
Obama, by bringing interroga-
tion of suspected terrorists dan-
gerously close to his own door-
step, might have weakened his
ability to employ this defense.
For those who are puzzled, the
president has announced plans
to establish an elite corps of
seasoned interrogators under
the auspices of the National
Security Council in the White
House. Although this team
assembled from a number of

federal agencies will be housed
in FBI headquarters here, the
responsibility for their actions
will fall directly under the presi-
dent's control.
The decision to establish the
group and essentially take con-
trol of all but the most mundane
questioning of suspects away
from the beleaguered CIA was
to avoid the kind of "harsh"
practices that have become so
controversial in the effort to
prevent terrorist threats here
and throughout the world.
Presumably the members of
this force would avoid the
legal pitfalls that plagued the
Bush administration follow-
ing the Sept. 11, 2001, assault
on America and are now the
subject of an investigation by a
special prosecutor appointed by
Attorney General Eric Holder.
But it is naive to believe that
there will never be a time when
even this highly talented cadre
with all its moral imperatives
won't embark on a course that
could'bring more than a little
controversy to the White House.
When that happens, the ability
to wall off the president will
have become far more difficult.
Actually setting up another intel-
ligence group, even one just
dedicated to interrogation if that
is all it is, is probably not a great
idea in the first place.
The creation of this newest
group seems the direct result
of the political pressures to


overturn Obama's promise not
to pursue past mistakes but to
move ahead. He obviously has
capitulated to those in and out
of Congress intent on further
demonizing the past administra-
tion.
Every president sets the
moral tone of his administration
and it is enough that Obama has
declared that certain practices
won't be tolerated. Also it is a
near certainty that the CIA's
past methods aren't likely to be
repeated as the agency strives
to ward off further embarrass-
ment and a complete break-
down in morale. The president
and his advisers should be care-
ful that this approach doesn't
backfire and leave him vulner-
able to accusations that ulti-
mately lead to large scandals.
With plausible deniability less of
a possibility the damage could
be serious.
The last thing Obama wants
to hear are the words made
famous by former Sen. Howard
Baker of Tennessee during the
Watergate investigation: "What
did the president know and
when did he know it?" It. was the
phrase that most summed up
Nixon's dilemma and ultimately
brought his resignation.
It is always better to set the
guidelines and stand back ready
to show great surprise when
someone fails to follow them,
which they always will. Under
the current circumstances that
may be tough. On most things,
the buck does stop at the presi-
dents desk, but there are times
when it is best for the country
that it stops before reaching
there.

VIEW


After 54 years, someone else gets a chance


long-ruling - all
but 11 months since
1955 - Liberal
Democratic Party
may not be quite the sea change
in Japanese politics it'seems.
The swing was indeed dra-
matic. The upstart Democratic
Party of Japan won 308 of the
480 seats in the lower house of
parliament, while the LDP was
reduced from 300 seats to 119.
But analysts say the lopsided
results were less an endorse-
ment of the DPJ than frustration
with a party that seemed to be
exhausted and bereft of ideas
after too many years in power
arid seemingly paralyzed by
years of stagnation and now a
recession that the country is
slowly climbing out of.
The upper levels of Japanese
politics seem to be a clubby
affair. The likely new prime
minister, .Yukio Hatoyama, is
the grandson of a former prime


minister and one of the found-
ers of the LDP. Hatoyama is
expected to be named by mid-
month, in time" to attend the
U.N. General Assembly and the
G-20 meeting in Pittsburgh.
The DPJ faces several
intractable problems. Japan's
population is both aging and
relentlessly shrinking. The
population, now just over 127
million, is projected to dwindle
to under 100 million by mid-cen-
tury. A partial solution to both
problems - immigration - is
probably culturally unacceptable
to the electorate.
The DPJ has made some
expensive promises - a $3,300-
a-year child allowance, more
generous farm subsidies, tax
cuts, a hike in the minimum
wage, extended'unemployment
insurance and a ban on hiring
temporary workers. Assuming
this doesn't send Japanese busi-
ness into a funk, there is the
problem of paying for it with a


public debt that is close to 200
percent of GDP.
The DPJ wants to redefine
Japan's relationship to the
United States to one that is
"more equal" and draw closer
to Asia. The party promises to
end a Japanese naval refueling
mission to the Indian Ocean
in support of U.S.-led opera-
tions in Afghanistan. The party
also promises to re-examine
the U.S. military presence in
Japan, 50,000 troops and huge
bases on Okinawa. Considering
Japan's crazy neighbor, North
Korea, just across the straits,
the party might want to think
carefully about reducing those
forces.
Hatoyama's first task might
be to gain control over the
sprawling DPJ, united largely in
its opposition to the LDP. Japan
is not reticent about changing
prime ministers. He will be the
fourth in three years.

Teaching

bill has

national

reach
Down here in Texas,
the state legisla-
ture meets every
two years and
passes a set of new
laws, some good, some bad,
some peculiar.
Texas House Bill 2504 fits in
the last category, but it's worth
consideration for the light
that it reflects on our attitudes
toward higher education in our
nation as a whole.
Some of the bill's provisions
are so ordinary that many
colleges and universities are
already in compliance with
them.
For example, it requires all
faculty members at public insti-
tutions in Texas to post on the
Internet a syllabus for each of
their courses. I've done this for
years, and so have most of my
colleagues.
The bill requires that a cur-
riculum vitae for each instruc-
tor be posted on the Internet,
as well, including postsec-
ondary education, teaching
experience, and significant
professional publications. Fair
enough.
But then the bill begins
to drift in odd directions: for
-each of their courses college
and university teachers are
required to post "a general
description of the subject mat-
ter of each lecture or discus-
sion." Thig provision implies
unawareness of a trend of sev-
eral decades in higher educa-
tion away from canned lectures
toward more dynarriic learning
experiences that can't neces-
sarily be predicted accurately
several months in advance.
Indeed, plenty of old-fash-
ioned lecturing still takes place
in college, but the wisdom of
inscribing the concept in law
is doubtful and'doesn't reflect
much understanding of mod-
ern higher education.
There are many more
requirements and specifica-
tions, but when one discovers
that the bill stipulates the max-
imum number of links away
from the institution's homep-
age that the prescribed infor-
mation may reside (not more
than three, which presents a
significant Web page design
issue in itself), one wonders
why government is intruding
so deeply into the details of
higher education.
And there's the problem:
the bill pretends to be about
information but it has a patent
political agenda, an unques-
tioning allegiance to "free mar-
ket principles" that are largely
unsuited to higher education.
Frankly, these principles
haven't worked that well in
health care or the oil industry,
either.
But higher education is one
endeavor that should be pre-
served from the pressures of
profit and loss, a place where
some people are still paid to
think about and teach philoso-
phy and literature and music
and art, even if they don't
serve the bottom line.
HB2504 hopes to change
that in Texas; the rest of the
nation should be wary, as well.

NEW YORK - Goofy
videos weren't on the minds
of Len Kleinrock and his

began tests 40 years ago
on what would become the
Internet. Neither was social
networking, for that matter,
nor were most of the other
easy-to-use applications that
have drawn more than a bil-
lion people online.
Instead the research-
ers sought to create an
open network for freely
exchanging information,
an openness that ultimately
spurred the innovation that
would later spawn the likes
of YouTube, Facebook and
the World Wide Web.
There's still plenty of
room for innovation today,
yet the openness. foster-
ing it may be eroding.
While the Internet is more
widely available and faster
than ever, artificial barri-
ers threaten to constrict its
growth.
Call it a mid-life crisis.
A variety of factors are to
blame. Spam and- hacking
attacks force network oper-
ators to erect security fire-
walls. Authoritarian regimes
block access to many sites
and services within their
borders. And commercial
considerations spur policies
that can thwart rivals, par-
ticularly on mobile devices
like the iPhone.

AP Technology Writer

NEW YORK - With a
little help from the Beatles,
Super Mario and price cuts
from Sony and Microsoft,
the slumping video game
industry is hoping for a
sales resurrection this fall.
The season gets a late-
summer start Tuesday, with
the release of "Guitar Hero
5," a game featuring music
from the Rolling Stones,
Nirvana and other popu-
lar bands. Then on Sept. 9'
comes the launch, of "The
Beatles: Rock Band," which
marks the rock icons' debut
in a video game.
Plagued by the reces-
sion and a lackluster game
release schedule for much
of this year, the video game
industry - which is big-
ger than the music busi-
ness by some estimates
- has fallen into a slump..
It has been the first once
since the latest game con-
soles - the Xbox 360, the
Wii and the PlayStation 3
- were launched in 2005
and 2006.
The music genre - the
second-most popular cat-
egory behind action games
- has suffered in particular,
though that's partly because
it's been so popular in the
past couple of years that
it needs exceptional sales
just to stay even. According
to the NPD Group, U.S.
retail sales in the music and
dance game genre were
nearly $390 million less at
the end of July than at the
same time last year.

Cigarette makers sue

over new tobacco law LOCAL STOCKS


By MICHAEL FELBERBAUM
AP Business Writer

RICHMOND, Va. - Two
of the three largest U.S.
tobacco companies filed
suit against federal authori-
ties Monday, claiming a law
that gives the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration
new authority over tobacco
violates their right to free
speech.
R.J. Reynolds Tobacco
Co., maker of Camel ciga-
rettes, and Lorillard Inc.,
which sells Newport men-
thol brand, filed the federal
lawsuit with several other
tobacco companies.
Part of the bill, passed in
June, covers cigarette mar-
keting.
The lawsuit doesn't chal-
lenge the decision to give the
FDA authority over tobacco
products. But the tobacco
makers claim provisions of
the law "severely restrict the
few remaining channels we
have to communicate with
adult tobacco consumers,"
Martin L. Holton III, senior
vice president and general


counsel for Reynolds, said in
a statement.
FDA spokeswoman
Kathleen Quinn said the
agency does not comment
on pending litigation.
Joining in the suitfiled U.S.
District Court in Bowling
Green, Ky., are: National
Tobacco Co., Discount
Tobacco City & Lottery
Inc., and Commonwealth
Brands, which is owned by
Britain's Imperial Tobacco
Group PLC.
The Family Smoking
Prevention and Tobacco
Control Act allows the FDA
to reduce nicotine in tobac-
co products, ban candy
flavorings and block labels
such "low tar" and "light."
Tobacco companies also
will be required to cover
any carton images with
large graphic warnings.
The law doesn't let the
FDA ban nicotine or tobac-
co outright, but the agency
will be able to regulate what
goes into tobacco products,
make public those ingre-
dients and prohibit certain
marketing campaigns.

screen cues about when
to finger guitar-like plastic
controllers or hit touch-
sensitive drums. When the
game is played well, the
songs sound pretty good.
"You just get into it - it
feels like you're in a real
band. It's like you're really
on stage," said Marquez
Alexander, 14, who bought
two sports games Monday
at a GameStop store near
San Francisco's Union
Square. He said he plans
to pester his mother to buy
him the new Beatles game
- even though he barely
knows the band.
"I never heard of them
until I was like 7. It's just
another game, another chal-
lenge," he said.
While John Lennon may
have once boasted the
Beatles were more popu-.
lar than Jesus, time will
tell whether today's video
game fans feel that way.
The "Rock Band" game will
cost $60, which is typical
for a big release, but there
also will be a $250 ver-
sion that comes with "lim-
ited edition" instruments
resembling the ones the
Fab Four used.
Video game industry ana-
lysts are cautiously optimis-
tic that 2009 will end on a
higher note than it began,
not just because of the.
music games but blockbust-
ers like Nintendo's upcom-
ing remake of the classic
"Super Mario Bros." for the.
Wii and Activision Blizzard
Inc.'s "Call of Duty. Modern.
Warfare 2."
It doesn't hurt that two of
the three console makers
announced hefty price cuts
in recent days.

Crist, Seminoles agree

on new casinos deal


By BRENDAN FARRINGTON
Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE - Gov.
Charlie Crist signed a
new deal Monday to
allow blackjack and other
banked card games at all
seven Seminole Indian
casinos - not just the
four that the Legislature
authorized when setting
parameters on the deal
last spring.
Still, Crist predicted the
Legislature will accept the
deal that would provide the
state with a minimum of
$150 million a year for 20
years.
Nearly all the money
would be used for public
schools, state and commu-
nity colleges, and state uni-


versities.
"I believe that it's
close enough to what the
Legislature wants that it
ought to be able to obtain
their approval," Crist said.
"I hope they will because
I know it's good for the
kids."
Crist said. he expects
lawmakers to vote on the
proposal during a special
session in October.
The Florida Supreme
Court last year nullified an
earlier compact Crist signed
with the tribe because it did
not have the Legislature's
approval.
That deal also allowed
blackjack at the seven
Seminole casinos, but only
guaranteed the state $100
million a year.

Suwannee Forestry Center
manager, in a prepared
statement.
The Bronze Snmokey

L.A. blaze threatens 12,000 homes


By JOHN ANTCZAK
Associated Press

� LOS ANGELES - A
massive fire in the Angeles
National Forest nearly
doubled in size overnight,
threatening 12,000 homes
Monday in a 20-mile-long
swath of flame and smoke
and surging toward a
mountaintop broadcasting
complex and historic obser-
vatory.
The fire was the largest
of at least eight burning up
and down California after
days of triple-digit tempera-
tfres and low humidity. The
Los Angeles-area blaze had
burned at least 21 homes
and was moving north,
south and east through the
rugged foothills northeast
of the city.
, Despite a lack of wind,
the fire surged without
letup by running through
steep granite canyons and
feeding on brush that had
riotburned for 40 years, fire
ofQicials said. ,
'"It's burning every-
where," U.S. Forest Service
spokeswoman Dianne Cahir
said. "When it gets into can-
yons that haven't burned in
numerous years, it takes
off: If you have any insight
into the good Lord upstairs,
put in a request.".
The fire had burned 134
square miles of brush and
trees by early Monday and
was just 5 percent con-
tained.
.About 12,000 homes, as
*ell as communications
nd astronomy centers atop
Wy unt Wilson, were threat-
eiled by fire. At least 6,600
liomes were under manda-
tory evacuation orders and
mhoire than 2,500 firefighters
Nyere battling the flames.
".But the lack of wind kept
tife fires burning mainly in
G6iyonlands rather than
racing downhill and roar-
ihg explosively through the
dense suburbs- thatcluster-
at the base of the foothills.
- On the blaze's northwest-
erri front, two firefighters
iteie killed Sunday when


ASSOCIATED PRESS
A United States Forest Service air tanker drops fire retardant
next to a line of fire as the Station fire burns in the hills above
a home in Acton, Calif. on Sunday.


their truck drove off the
side of a road on Mount
Gleason near the city of
Acton.
More than 20 helicopters
and air tankers were pre-
paring to dump water and
retardant over the flames.
Two Canadian Super
Scoopers, giant craft that
can pull thousands of gal-
lons of water from lakes and
reservoirs, were expected
to join the fight later in the
day.
Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger on
Monday issued emergency
declarations for the coun-
ties of Placer, Monterey,
Los Angeles and Mariposa.
On the blaze's northwest-
ern front, two firefighters
were killed Sunday when
their truck drove off the side
of a road on Mount Gleason
near the city of Acton.
Killed were Capt. Tedmund
Hall, 47, of San Bernardino
County, and firefighter
Specialist Arnaldo "Arnie"
Quinones, 35, of Palmdale.
Hall was a 26-year veteran,
and Quinones had been a
county firefighter for eight
years.
"Our hearts are heavy as
we are tragically reminded
of the sacrifices our fire-
fighters and their families


make daily to keep us safe,"
Schwarzenegger said.
With flames about a half-
mile away from the com-
munications and astron-
omy centers on Mount
Wilson, crews planned to
set more backfires and
planes dropped fire retar-
dant around the mountain-
top complex, which hold
transmitters for more than
20 television stations, many
radio stations and cell
phone providers.
Television stations said if
the antennas burn, broad-
cast signals would be affect-
ed but satellite and cable
transmissions would not
be.
Two giant telescopes and
several multimillion-dollar
university programs are
housed in the century-old
Mount Wilson Observatory.
The complex of buildings is
both a historic landmark
and a thriving modern cen-
ter for astronomy.
The sheer length of the
fire meant that it threatened
homes ranging from scat-
tered ranches to multimil-
lion-dollar estates in luxury
enclaves.
Mandatory evacuations
were in effect for neigh-
borhoods in Glendale,
Pasadena and other smoke-


choked cities and towns
north of Los Angeles.
In La Crescenta, where
the San Gabriel Mountains
descend steeply to subur-
ban neighborhoods, streets
were nearly deserted ,
Monday morning as smoke
rose up some flanks of the
towering peaks.
The fire generally
appeared to be well up the
mountains, but a pall of
white haze burned eyes and
throats, and some flames
could be seen.
Schools were closed and
police cars guarded some
streets in the city's upper
reaches so that only fire-
fighters could get through.
Los Angeles County sher-
iff's Deputy Pedro Castillo
guarded a yellow police
tape across Briggs Avenue,
waving off residents who
wanted to get through to
check on their homes.
"You help us a lot by stay-
ing out of the area," Castillo
to an anxious man.
"I want to help myself,"
he replied before walking
away.
At a corner house just
below the restricted line,
Rick Drobner stood in
his driveway and watched
plumes of smoke. He wore
a heavy-duty filter mask.
Drobner, an artist and
ceramist, said he and his
wife and their cat had spent
the. previous night at a
motel.
"We've been here almost
30 years. Every time we
drive up Briggs, I look.
at these mountains, and
every time there's a fire
somewhere, I think ... what
would happen if it happened
here?"

Experts: Abductees often stay out of fear


By EVELYN NIEVES
Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO - In
the ,18 years that Jaycee
Lee Dugard allegedly spent
captive in Phillip Garrido's
backyard, shielded from
the world by trees, tarps,
tents and tool sheds, she no
doubt had a chance or two
to tell someone the truth.
Customers of Garrido's
Antioch home-based print-
ing business say the young
woman whom they knew as
Garrido's daughter "Allissa"
designed business cards
and helped with the family
business.
; They never suspected
that "Allissa" was a South
Lake Tahoe girl kidnapped
in 1991 at age 11.
Neighbors also had no
idea that Garrido's two
young daughters - now
11 and 15 - were Dugard's


offspring, fathered by
Garrido.
Why didn't Jaycee
Dugard escape, reach out,
scream for help?
The question arises
every time an abductee is
found with their abductors
after years of hiding. But
the question, and its implic-
it criticism of the survivors,
is unfair, say experts on
kidnapping.
"It's really important that
people not jump to judg-
ments or conclusions in
these cases," said JoAnn
Behrman-Lippert, a Reno,
Nev.-based psychologist
who has done extensive
research on child abduc-
tion cases. "We know there
are many cases like this,
and it's very detrimental to
the survivors to have such
a simplistic view that does
not take into account the
actual situation the person


Ridge: Terror-alert

politics talk exaggerated


Associated Press
':WASHINGTON -
Foimer Homeland Security
Secretary Tom Ridge said
Monday people "are hyper-
ventilating" about his asser-
ti6n that politics played a
role in talk of raising the
terror alert before the 2004
elections.
:'!A consensus was
reached. We didn't go up.
The process worked,"
Ridge said in an interview
oi ABC's "Good Morning
Amierica."
-The former Pennsylvania
goVernor, however, did not
take back the statement in
his; new.book, "The Test of
Our Times: America Under
Siege," that he worried at
the time that politics was a
consideration in discussions


among high-level officials
about whether to raise the
color-coded terror alert to
a higher level. He acknowl-
edged there was a lively
debate about it, but repeat-
ed that it was not done, and
thus not an issue.
Ridge said his concern
at the time of the internal
Bush administration discus-
sions was to be "absolute-
ly certain" that divergent
.points of view were heard
and that people had their
say.
Ridge said he thought
it "would be criminal" for
the new administration to
seek to prosecute people
who likely believed they
were acting within the law
and with proper authority at
the time the interrogations
were carried out.


LAn rn III


was in."
Authorities say that
Garrido and his wife
Nancy kidnapped and
raped Dugard and kept her
imprisoned in the backyard
compound. They pleaded
not guilty Friday to the
charges.
Garrido's printing busi-
ness customers described
Dugard as a polite and effi-
cient aide who straightened
out orders on the phone
and by email.
One customer, Ben
Daughdrill, said he saw her
'twice in the last six months
when he drove to the
Garrido home to pick up
office supplies and drop off
payment. She had an oppor-
tunity to escape or seek his
help when she came out
alone to Daughdrill's vehi-
cle.
'There was a reason she
did not say anything," said


Daughdrill.
One explanation given
to victims who stay with
their captors is that they
have Stockholm syndrome,
where the victim comes
to identify with and bond
with their kidnappers. The
term was coined in 1973
to describe several bank
employees held captive
for six days in Sweden. At
the end of their ordeal, the
hostages resisted rescue,
refused to testify against
their captors and helped
raise money for their legal
defense.
Stockholm syndrome is
most often associated with
Patty Hearst, the newspaper
heiress kidnapped in 1974
from her Berkeley apart-
ment by the Symbionese
Liberation Army. She joined
the group as.'Tania," a radi-
cal in army fatigues who
helped her captors rob
banks.

U.S. general calls
for new strategy
KABUL - The commander
of U.S. and NATO troops in
Afghanistan said Monday in
an assessment of the war
that a new strategy was
needed to fight the Taliban,
while NATO officials dis-
closed he is expected to sep-
arately request more troops.
Explosions killed two
more U.S. troops, raising the
record death toll in August
to 47 - the deadliest month
of the eight-year war for
American forces.
Boosting the number of
U.S. forces in Afghanistan
is a hot-button issue that
could ignite furious debate
in Washington on the U.S.
military's future in an increas-
ingly unpopular war.

EU: Fresh Mideast
talks on the way
JERUSALEM - A top
European Union official said
Monday that renewal of
Israeli-Palestinian peace talks
could be announced in late
September.
The EU's foreign policy
chief Javier Solana said he
expected a plan to reopen
negotiations to emerge with
the opening of the United
Nations General Assembly on
Sept. 23.
- "I'sense ... that we will
have some kind of statement,
some kind of proposal, that
will come probably around
thd days of the United
Nations," Solana told report-
ers between meetings with
Israeli leaders.
Israeli and Palestinian offi-
cials last week confirmed that
efforts were under way to
arrange a meeting between
their leaders at the U.N. next
month.

Victims boycott
Cambodia tribunal
PHNOM PENH, Cambodia
- Lawyers representing
victims of Cambodia's mur-
derous Khmer Rouge regime
boycotted a tribunal trying its
leaders after being barred
Monday from questioning a
defendant about his person-
ality and state of mind.
The move by the victims'
attorneys came after judges
said they could not question
former Khmer Rouge prison
chief Kaing Guek Eav about
his character.

Dangerous storm threatens Los Cabos


By MARK STEVENSON
Associated Press

CABO SAN LUCAS,
Mexico - Emergency
workers built shelters for
thousands of endangered
families as a strengthening
Hurricane Jimena roared
toward Mexico's resort-
studded Baja California
Peninsula Monday.
Jimena, a dangerous
Category 4 storm, could
rake the southern penin-
sula by Tuesday evening,
forecasters said.
At least 10,000 families,
will be evacuated from
potential flood zones, said
Francisco Cota, the local
director of Civil Protection.
He said 60 shelters would
be set up.
"I think it's going to be
a substantial hurricane by
the time it approaches,"
said Richard Pasch of the
National Hurricane Center
in Miami.
Delegates from around
the world had already
begun to arrive for a

ASSOCIATED PRESS
People gather at a beach in Cabo San Lucas, Baja California peninsula, northwestern

Rwandan church


massacre t
By SUKHDEV CHHATBAR
Associated Press
ARUSHA, Tanzania - A
Rwandan businessman
went on trial Monday for
allegedly ordering bulldoz-
ers to demolish a church
where 2,000 Tutsis had
sought shelter, and watch-
ing as they were crushed
or hunted down by armed
gangs.
More than half a million
members of the.Tutsi eth-
nic minority and moder-
ates from the Hutu majority
were slaughtered during
the 100-day Rwandan geno-
cide in 1994, and justice is
still being meted out.
Gaspard Kanyarukiga,
who was arrested in South
Africa in July 2004, pleaded
innocent to killing about
2,000 Tutsis at Nyange
Church.
Prosecutor Holo


rial begins
Makwaia said Kanyarukiga
had coaxed a reluctant
bulldozer driver to crush
those sheltering in the
church. Those who tried
to flee were hunted and
slaughtered. Makwaia said
Kanyarukiga bought beer
for the bulldozer driver and
drank with him to celebrate
the deaths.
Ifi 2006, a Roman Catholic
priest, Athanase Seromba,
was convicted of ordering
militiamen to set fire to the
church and then bulldoze
it. He is serving a life sen-
tence.
Kanyarukiga's trial,
at the Tanzania-based
International Criminal
Tribunal for Rwanda, may
take years. Thq tribunal has
delivered judgments on 39
people, including six acquit-
tals, since it was set up in
1994.


Los Cabos at the southern
tip of the peninsula.
Nicholas Bray, the head
of media for the Paris-based


organization, said Monday
there are no plans to post-
pone or cancel the meeting
due to the hurricane.


Los Cabos Mayor Oscar
Nunez said people in poorly
constructed homes face "a
huge potential risk" right
now and they may be forced
to evacuate.
Brenda Munoz, who lost
her home to a 2001 hurri-
cane, was taking no chanc-
es and stocking up on food
this time.
"I remember when
Hurricane Juliette hit with
a lot of intensity. It flattened
our home, lots of flooding,
lots of disaster," Munoz said
in Cabo San Lucas. '"We're
already prepared with food
and everything so it won't
catch us off guard."
As rain started falling
Monday morning, Mitch
Williams of Orange County,
California, waited at the air-
port to fly home from his
vacation.
"I know that it's getting
closer.... The hurricane can
do a lot of damage if it hits
at that strength," he said.
Williams said poorer resi-
dents who live in shacks in
this vacation town are not
well prepared.


Hamas leader denies Nazi genocide


By DIAA HADID
Associated Press
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip
- A Hamas spiritual leader
on Monday called teaching
Palestinian children about
the Nazi murder of 6 mil-
lion Jews a "war crime,"
rejecting a reported U.N.
proposal to include the
Holocaust in Gaza's school
curriculum.
A senior Israeli official
said such statements should
make the West think twice
about ending its boycott of
Hamas, in place since the
group seized Gaza by force
in 2007.
Hamas spiritual leader
Younis al-Astal lashed out
after hearing that the U.N.
Relief and Works Agency,
the main U.N. body aid-
ing Palestinian refugees,


planned to introduce les-
sons about the Holocaust to
Gaza students.
Adding the Holocaust
to the curriculum would
amount to "marketing a lie
and spreading it," al-Astal
wrote in a statement
"I do not exaggerate
when I say this issue is
a war crime, because of
how it serves the Zionist
colonizers and deals with
their hypocrisy and lies,"
he wrote.
Hamas spokesman
Sami Abu Zuhri also
objected to including what
he referred to as the "so-
called Holocaust" in the
lesson plan. "We think it's
more important to teach
Palestinians the crimes of
the Israeli occupation," he
said.


Israeli government
spokesman Mark Regev
said countries contem-
plating ending their boy-
cott of Hamas must "seri-
ously reconsider" after the
Hamas statemerits, which
he described as "obscene."
Many Palestinians are
reluctant to acknowledge
Jewish suffering, fearing
it might diminish their
own. Attitudes toward the
Holocaust range from out-
right denial to challenging
its scope.
Still, Hamas has been
making overtures to the
West, hoping to end a sti-
fling blockade of Gaza.
The statements about the
Holocaust by senior Hamas
officials could undermine
the group's attempt to pres-
ent itself as pragmatic.

FORT WHITE - Just
like in Godfather III, Fort
White head coach Demetric
Jackson tried to get out but
they pulled him back in.
After four years of look-

High in District 2-2A, the
Indians got a break in the
FHSAA' fidiStricting., Fort
SWhite moved to 2-2B, while


Madison County petitioned
to stay 2A and were placed
in District 1.
However, Fort White had
trouble with its 2009 sched-

came calling.
The Indians will travel to
Madison County's Boot Hill
for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff on
Friday.
"It wasn't by choice,"
Jackson said. "It was
pretty difficult trying to
schedule. Teams we usu-

Keystone Heights, but they


wouldn't play us."
Madison County is on a
14-year playoff run. From
1995-98 the Cowboys
competed in Class. 4A,
where they made the state
semifinals in 1997 and were
runners-up in 1998.
With redistricting in

OPEN: Isner nosts unset


Continued From Page 1B
Williams, who has won
the Australian Open and
Wimbledon this year,
is going for her second
straight and fourth U.S.
Open title.
Other winners in the
first round included eighth-
*seeded Victoria Azarenka,
12th-seeded Agnieszka
Radwanska and 26th-seed-
ed Francesca Schiavone.
Paul-Henri Mathieu, No. 26
on the men's side, was the
first seeded player to lose,
beaten by Mikhail Youzhny
2-6, 7-5, 6-0, 6-2.
American John Isner
won a 16-14 second-set tie-
breaker, the highlight of a
6-1, 7-6 (14), 7-6 (5) upset
over 28th-seeded Victor
Hanescu. Isner has missed
a good part of the year with
mononucleosis.
"It might have been a
blessing in disguise," Isner
said. "I've felt fresh ever
since I started playing in
the States."
Another American, Sam
Querrey, will debut later
this week, bringing with
him some lofty expecta-
tions - he might be the
next great American tennis
star in a country looking
Sfor just that.
"Everyone is doing what
they can," said Querrey,
who is seeded 22nd. "A
lot of times, even if you go
back 100 years, you'll have
a period of 10 years where
you'll have four or five guys
in the top 10, and then years
where you might just have
one guy. It's kind of like a
rolling wave."
Federer, who over-
came a "slump" last year
when he lost to Rafael
Nadal in the French and
Wimbledon finals, and has
returned back to the top of
his game.
He won both those
titles this year, holds the
record with 15 Grand Slam
championships and isn't
showing signs of tiring.


JL .


He is looking for his sixth
straight U.S. Open title.
Win or lose, the paycheck
guaranteed by the opening-
round victory made him the
first player in tennis history
to-reach $50 million in prize
money:
"I know tennis is not
everything, so it's not a
problem," said Federer, the
father of 5-week-old twin
girls. "But if I enjoy playing
tennis, why should I stop
just because I've beaten the
all-time Grand Slam record?
That's not what tennis is all
about."
Easy for him to say.
While he moves on,
Britton plans to hang around
and see if he can pull one of
the wild-card invites for the
mixed doubles.
He's signed up with the
women's NCAA champi-
on, Mallory Cecil, and is
hoping the pairing of two
college champions will
interest the tournament
organizers.

Slocum holds off stars


Associated Press

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - One week after
Heath Slocum wondered if he would even
make it to the PGA Tour Playoffs, he
finished off a compelling afternoon at
Liberty National by making a 20-foot par
putt on the 18th hole for a one-shot vic-
tory over Tiger Woods and a cast of stars
Sunday at The Barclays.
Woods was one shot behind when he
fired a 6-iron from 189 yards into 7 feet
on the final hole, adding to his collection
of clutch shots. Typical of his week, how-
ever, Woods missed the putt and shot 67,
then had to wait to see if there would be
a playoff.
Slocum and Steve Stricker, tied for the
lead, both hit into fairway bunkers and
couldn't reach the green. Stricker. had
a 10-foot par putt to force a playoff, and
cringed when -it caught the left lip. He
closed with a 69.

Champions Tour

SNOQUALMIE, Wash. - Second-round
co-leader Loren Roberts birdied the final
two holes to steal the Boeing Classic title
and keep Mark O'Meara winless on the

bogey on the short, par-4 16th when his
second shot found.a bunker short of the
green. He rebounded with a birdie on the
17th, but could only manage a par on the
par-5 18th when his tee shot found a fair-
way bunker.

LPGA Tour

NORTH PLAINS, Ore. - Rookie M.J.
Hur hit a 6-foot birdie putt on the second
playoff hole of the Safeway Classic to beat
Suzann Pettersen for her first LPGA Tour

Hur shot a final-round 65, while
Pettersen and veteran Michele Redman
each finished with a 67 to finish at 13-
under 203 and set up the playoff.

DEAR ABBY


Patience is stretched thin

in doctors' waiting rooms


DEAR ABBY: Your ad-
vice to "Sick of Waiting in
Denver" (June 25) will help
a number of our patients.
Physicians don't want frus-
trated and angry patients,
and we don't plan our day
expecting long waits. Your
suggestion that when a doc-
tor is running more than 15
minutes late, the next per-
son should be warned is ap-
propriate.
Your other suggestion
to call the doctor's office an
hour ahead of time to see
if he/she is on schedule
might not work. The physi-
cian might be on schedule,
but a problem could arise
that throws him/her off.
Arriving at the office and
finding the doctor horribly
backed up after hearing
that he was on schedule at
the time of the phone call
would be upsetting.
Unfortunately, I haven't
found an easy solution to
this in my 25 years of prac-
tice. It does help to focus
on good manners and em-
pathy, and to alert patients
at the time of check-in if
there's a problem, which
allows them to return or
reschedule. Of course, the
physician conveying per-
sonally to his patients that
their time is as important
as his also goes a long way.


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com
- MARC SCHNEIDER-
MAN, M.D., PENNSYL-
VANIA
DEAR DR. SCH-
NEIDERMAN: Amen to
that, and thank you for say-
ing so. Read on for some of
the comments I received
from patients:
DEAR ABBY: I find it
interesting that the doctor's
rights are prominently post-
ed in the waiting room, e.g.,
co-pays are due before you
see the doctor, if you don't
cancel your appointment 24
hours in advance and you
fail to show up, you will be
billed for the appointment
But nowhere do you see
the patients' rights posted.
As a patient I insist on
one simple right - that the
doctor see me within 15
minutes of the appointed
time made by his/her staff.
Last year I fired two doctors
for keeping me waiting. In
both cases I let the doctor
know I would no longer be
seeing them and why. One
had the gall to tell me his

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): The more you
step out on a limb for some-
one or something you be-
lieve in, the better you will
do. There is plenty of poten-
tial coupled with opportuni-
ties if you work alongside
people with the same goal
or point of view. Don't fear
the unknown. 4 ****
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20):. Don't count on
anyone who is trying to
pressure you. Even if prom-
ised, you aren't likely to get
what you want in the end.
Instead, go it alone. You will
be able to capture attention
by giving the most for the
least. **
GEMINI (May21-June
20): Someone critical will
be waiting for you to make
a mistake. Your insight and
ability to do things with fi-
nesse should be enough to
keep everyone happy. Love
and romance will lead to a
chance to travel. *****
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): If you overload
your agenda you will end
up feeling anxious. An
argument will harm a re-
lationship you have with
someone from work or with
whom you have to deal
regularly. Make your home
more adaptable for the
responsibilities you have


THE LAST WORD

taken on. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): You'll be able to ex-
press your feelings effort-
lesslCOMICSy. The talks
you have will clear up any
misconceptions. Plan a va-
cation that will allow you
some time to relax. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept
22): A serious attitude will
help you persuade others to
take a chance on you. Un-
certainty regarding some-
one you love can be cleared
up with a few simple ques-
tions. Don't make assump-
tions or you will make a
poor decision. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Love is on the rise and
a chance to share your emo-
tions with someone special
will. develop. Its time to
make new friends and to
find new hobbies. Idle time
will lead to anxiety. **
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Watch your back.
Someone you think you can
trust will let you down. Fo-
cus on work, helping others
and visiting friends. Cre-
ative collaboration will pay
off. Avoid overindulgence
in any form. **
SAGITrARIUS (Nov.


22-Dec. 21): You will dis-
cover alternative ways to
make more money. A love
relationship can lead to
an easier lifestyle and less
pressure on you. Follow
your heart; it will not lead
you astray. ****
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): You may
be under a little pressure.
Don't let anyone push you
to do something before you
are ready. A serious deal
will require more time and
effort if you want to maxi-
mize the outcome. Find out
everything you can. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): You can clear
matters up by talking about
the way you feel and what
your plans are for the fu-
ture. Don't hold back when
so much depends on being
truthful about your con-
cerns and intentions. Love
and romance will take a fa-
vorable turn. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Don't get
caught up in the hoopla
when there is so much
more to the events taking
place. Do your research
and find out what and who
is behind a project or event
you want to be a part of.
There may be a change of
heart regarding a partner-
ship. ***
