auction at Christie's next week. The
1972 colored screenprint is expected

Group upset over Suspect's wife
hoop donation calls police

BARTOW An athe-
ist group is upset over
the Polk County Sheriff's
recent decision to donate
jailhouse basketball equip-
ment to eight churches.
Atheists of Florida on
Tuesday formally request-
ed information' from the
sheriff's office, including
how much the equipment
is worth and how much tax-
payer money was involved.
The group contends Sheriff
Grady Judd violated sepa-
ration of church and state
by giving the equipment to
churches instead of schools
or parks.
Just before Christmas,
Judd ordered the removal
of the basketball goals, say-
ing, "going to jail isn't fun
and games."
The atheist group said it
will decide on its next step
after receiving the request-
ed information.
Grady, however, said

said a man confessed to rob-

The incident occurred
Tuesday afternoon in the

Authorities said 37-year-
old Lynn Bedus had parked

The grand marshals for this year's
parade are Walter "Polk" Jones and
Joyce Tunsil.
Jones was the first black frogman
- combat diver in the U.S. Navy
from World War II, Williams said.
Tunsil is a retired educator and very
involved with youth in the community.
The two were selected as marshals

because of their community involve-
'We look at people who have con-
tributed in the community," he said.
"One of the criteria is people have
roots in the community and make a

IDA: May become Columbia County Economic Development Department
Continued From Page 1A

Florida statutes do not specifi-
cally provide authorization to the
IDA for all economic develop-
ment activities and do not pro-
vide that county commissioners
can sit on the board.
Williams said the IDA board
will still be kept since statute
gives it not an economic devel-
opment board the authority to
issue industrial revenue bonds.
If asked by the commission,
Williams said he would recom-
mend that whomever sits on the
economic development board

also make up the IDA board.
'The members are the same,"
he said, "it just depends oh which
hat they're wearing and the nature
of the business in front of them.
The county commission can decide
whether they want to have two sep-
arate boards or whether they can
fold them together, but have them
act separately when needed."
Williams said the economic
development board would need to
adopt bylaws and he thinks they
would make recommendations

"You can't vest in them certain
powers, because unless statute
gives them those powers, you
don't have them no matter what
the board may want," he said.
The IDA currently consists of a
two-person staff and a seven-mem-
ber board of directors.
Staff will recommend that appli-
cations be sought to fill the seven
economic development board
appointments outside of the two
commissioner appointments.
Williams said all current IDA
board members are encouraged to

apply to sit on the economic devel-
opment board.
Other recommended changes'
are that the new department would
be governed by Florida statute
and county policies, the Columbia
County Administrative Code would
be amended to reflect the new
department and the department's
annual financial report will be,
included in the county's combined
The department's budget will
remain as what the commission
adopted as the IDA budget for fis-

cal year 2010 to 2011.
The Columbia County Board of
County Commissioners will meet
at 7 p.m. at the Columbia County
School Board Administrative
Complex auditorium, 372 W Duval
Jim Poole, IDA executive direc-
tor, said he will attend the meet-
"I'm just looking forward to con-
tinuing to work to help Columbia
County improve its economic sta-
tus and provide better opportuni-
ties for its citizens," Poole said.

North Korea's disintegration

Y ou are right to think
that New Year's
predictions, espe-
cially the ones we
now write in today's
Infonet Age, are probably not
worth the ether they are written
After all, most are written to
either amuse or shock or just
to establish bragging rights in
case the wackiest guess actually
But every now and then,
something basic clicks and it
becomes clear that we have just
crossed a historic threshold.
Even though no one who really
knows is speaking about it.
2010 was one of those
years. And this is one of those
Prediction: By the time this
second decade of the 21st
Century has ended, the world
will no longer be menaced by
the nuclear rogue that is North
Here's what will happen:
(A) The impoverished nuclear
communist regime of North
Korea will collapse for good;
(B) the two Koreas will be uni-
fied; and (C) North Korea's
nuclear weapons fuel that once
was used to blackmail the world
will be blended down as fuel for
nuclear power plants that will
light the North's cities, towns
and rural countryside, empow-
ering a population that was kept
perpetually powerless by their
dictatorial communist rulers.
Here's why: Because China's
new generation of leaders want
it to happen. I believe they
reluctantly reached this conclu-
sion after North Korea com-
mitted a series of outrageous
and reckless actions in 2010.
Pyongyang's actions slowly but
certainly convinced China's
leaders they would never again
be able to trust or influence con-
structively North Korea's rogue


Martin Schram

China had always feared the
prospect of a North Korean col-
lapse, believing that a unified
Korea would give the United
States massive new influence
virtually in China's backyard.
But as 2010 unfolded, China's
leaders concluded that North
Korea's severe poverty, nuclear
weaponry and certain succes-
sion of irresponsible leadership
(as power is handed off to Kim
Jong-il's youngest son, Kim
Jong-un) meant an out-of-control
North Korea now looms as the
only force capable of derailing
China's inexorable progress
toward being a regional and
eventually global economic
I believe all of the above; but
,you also need to know that I do
not have any single source that
absolutely knows it is accurate.
(Then again, that didn't stop
me from predicting the fall of
the Berlin Wall in 1989; or pre-
dicting a 1991 Soviet military
coup that would topple Mikhail
Gorbachev only to trigger the
Soviet Union's collapse into a
"confederation of nation-states."
So maybe you want to keep
But in the place of one of
those authoritative anonymous
leaks, we do have a few authori-
tative WikiLeaks.
In February 2010, U.S.
Ambassador Kathleen Stephens
cabled Washington that South
Korean diplomat Chun Yung-
woo (who has since become his
government's national security
advisor) told her North Korea

would collapse in "two to three
years" after ailing Kim Jong-il
dies. And that China's einerging
generation of leaders "would
be comfortable with a reunited
Korea controlled by Seoul and
anchored to the United States in
a benign alliance."
In September 2009, China's
state councilor Dai Bingguo
jokingly reportedly told U.S.
Deputy Secretary of State James
B. Steinberg he "did not dare"
be too candid with Kim Jong-il.
Earlier in 2009, China's Vice
Foreign Minister He Yafei,
reportedly told U.S. officials
North Korea was acting like a
"spoiled child" seeking atten-
tion from an "adult" (the United
States) to start direct nuclear
The once-secret cables made
public by the WikiLeak web-
site show China was often as
surprised as the United States
by North Korea's nuclear tests
and other provocative acts. This
year, North Korea was believed
to have launched a torpedo
attack on a South Korean navy
ship, killing 46 sailors; revealed
it has built a uranium enrich-
ment plant; and shelled a South
Korean island village, killing
four and injuring many more.
Good news: Those

Korea were properly planning

South Korea reportedly plans
to assure China its companies
will have access to North
Korea's vast mineral deposits.
China's role of protecting

has reached its end. A collapse
of the rogue of the North is in
everyone's economic and secu-
rity interests.

Debt threatens national security

Don't even think
of lining up 13.9
trillion dollar bills
end-on-end in
order to create
some kind of visual metaphor
for our national debt.
The human brain is incapa-
ble of comprehending a num-
ber this big, but one thing we
all know: The debt is unaccept-
ably gigantic. It also threatens
our national security.
The U.S. debt is growing so
fast, it will equal the nation's
gross domestic product some-
time in the next five to 10
years unless drastic changes
occur. That puts us in league
with Greece and Italy in terms
of looming insolvency. Foreign

loans, particularly from China,
are what keep us afloat, and
America's influence over glob-
al affairs diminishes each time
it meekly approaches foreign
governments with hat in hand.
Conservatives want to flex
their new muscle in Congress
by blocking efforts to raise
the federal debt ceiling
before it reaches a $14.3 tril-
lion limit in coming months.
Without the increase,
America would risk default
and the calamitous prospect
of a global financial melt-
A last-minute, compromise
solution will avert disaster,
but the debt-ceiling vote must

not occur without serious
soul searching by Congress
and President Barack Obama
about our spending habits.
The kinds of cuts neces-
sary will be painfully deep,
and no matter how hard
either party tries to sway this
debate, meaningful action
cannot occur without bipar-
tisan agreement to deal with
"untouchable" items like
Social Security, Medicare,
military spending, domestic
security and taxes.
Everything everything
- must be put on the table to
see where maximum efficien-
cies can be found.

hide in

plain sight

f it had been a snake,
it would've bitten me.
That's what my mother
used to say when she
found something she'd
been looking for that had been
in plain sight all along.
My mother had nothing on
me. If half of the things I look '
for were snakes, I wouldn't just
be bitten. I'd be dead.
Like the reading glasses that .
are perched on the top of my
head. Or the car keys that I
left in the ignition. Or the cell
phone that should be in the
bottom of my purse but isn't,
of course, because I am talking
on it.
Actually, that last trick
belongs to my sister. She called
me on her cell phone one day
and we talked, as we do, for-
ever. When the phone battery
started chirping, she began
rummaging for something in
her purse.
"What are you looking for?"
"My cell phone," she said.
"My house phone is.dying. If
I can find my cell, I'll call you
"I think you're talking on it."
"I am not!" she said.
"OK," she said, finally. "I'll
call you back on the house
phone. If I can find it."
She will love this story.
My two boys, their wives
and my 4-month-old grandson .
spent four days with us recently.
But they did not sleep on our
new air bed. Yes, that would
be the fancy self-inflating,
double-comfort air bed that my
husband and I bought, stored
and then spent hours looking
for, strip-searching the house,
the garage, every closet and
rafter, peering suspiciously over
the fences at.our neighbors, to
absolutely no avail.
Let me ask you: Who loses
an air bed? Fully deflated, it
weighs 75 pounds and wouldn't
fit in the back of a Land Rover.
"What did you do with it?" my
husband asked.
"Me?" I said. "You had it last."
"Did not."
"Did, too."
For four days, my children
slept like orphans in makeshift
beds on the floor. And the day
after they left, I found it. Or it
found me. The air bed. In the
guest room. Under the guest
bed. Where I had stored it.
If it had been a snake ....
I could've sworn I'd checked
under that bed. Obviously, I had
not. But sometimes the obvious
doesn't seem obvious at all.
I thought of that this morning
as I took last year's calendar off
the hook to transfer birthdays
and other dates to the pristine
pages of a brand-new year.
You might call it a rite of pas-
sage. Before hanging a new
calendar, I like to take a few
minutes to review the old one,
to look back at where I've been
and things I've done.
Every year brings much to
be thankful for. Some, yes, less'
than others. But 2010, for me,
was the best yet. I spoke at a
dozen events and met hundreds
of good people. I took my broth-
er, who's blind and loves to
"watch" the Tigers play football,
to a Clemson game.
I don't know what this year
will hold. I know it's there, right
in front of me, but I can't see
it not until it finds me. I can
only keep looking with eyes and
arms and heart wide open. And
pray that the snakes don't bite. "

Is expired


still safe?

GOTT: With
our overall
in this down
economy and no Social
Security increase going
on two years now, I have
a question many of your
readers probably face. Can
taking expired medications
make you sick or even poi-
son you?
To be more exact, I'm
referring to hard-coated
prescriptions, not the soft
capsule forms that have
been stored as directed
in a cool, dry place and
for which I still have the
medical problem they were
originally prescribed.
I'm talking maybe one or
two years past expiration
and mostly prescribed for
pain relief.
general rule, they will nei-
ther make you sick nor will
they poison you.
Starting in 1979, labeling
mandated that expiration
dates be included on medi-
cation -both over-the-
counter and prescription
This requirement only
indicates the date a manu-
facturer guarantees full
potency and safety of that
medication. It does not
indicate how long a drug is
either safe or effective.
The FDA conducted one
of the largest-known stud-
ies for the U.S. military
15 years ago, and it was
subsequently reported in
the Wall StreetJournal in
March 2000.
The military stored $1
billion worth of drugs for a
test program to determine
whether it could extend the
lifetime of its inventories,
which had traditionally
been updated every two
to three years (at great
expense and much effort
with disposal).
More than 100 drugs
were tested, including
OTCs and prescription
meds. At the end of the test
period, almost 90 percent
of the drugs were found to
be both safe and effective
15 years after the posted
expiration date.
As of 2003, the FDA
indicated they still did not
garner sufficient evidence
from the program, but from
my perspective, the results
speak for themselves.
There are a few exceptions,
however nitroglycerin,
some liquid antibiotics,
tetracyclines and insulin.
Generally speaking, drugs
degrade slowly, especially
pain medication, and with
these exceptions, most can
be used successfully long
after the expiration date.
There are specific rec-
ommendations for disposal
of any medications you
might wish to eliminate
from your medicine chest.
Check with your local
hospital, pharmacy, walk-in
health facility or a pharma-
ceutical company to deter-
mine whether they have a
takeback program.
If not, consider putting
the drugs in a plastic bag.
Crush them with a kitchen
tool such as a meat tender-
izer to break them apart.
Add used coffee grounds
or kitty litter to the bag.
Place the contents in a can
or container, and dispose
of them in the trash not
down the toilet.

allows to be marketed as less harm-
ful than other forms of tobacco.
Star Scientific says the "modified-
risk" label that the FDA is develop-
ing belongs on the new Stonewall
Moist-BDL because it contains 90
percent to 99 percent less tobacco-
specific carcinogens than other
smokeless tobacco products.
The federal Centers for Disease
Control says that, because
smokeless tobacco contains 28
cancer-causing agents, it is not a
safe substitute for smoking ciga-
rettes. But a 2007 report from the

for Camel Snus smokeless tobacco is
United Kingdom's Royal College
of Physicians suggests that some
smokeless tobacco products are
less harmful than cigarettes.
Curtis Wright, senior vice
president and clinical director for
Star Scientific's subsidiary Rock
Creek Pharmaceuticals, said the

new product could "substantially"
reduce the amount of carcinogens
that moist tobacco users encounter.
The FDA is still considering sim-
ilar applications from Star for two
of its dissolvable tobacco products.
Star has sold dissolvable tobacco
under the Ariva and Stonewall
brands since 2001.
The applications highlight a
philosophical debate over how best
to control tobacco. Some health
advocates and officials say there's
no safe way to use tobacco. Others
say smokeless tobacco, electronic
cigarettes and other products with
lower levels of carcinogens than
traditional tobacco products can
improve public health by reducing
the number of people who smoke.
Cigarette sales have been fall-
ing for years due to tax increases,
health concerns, smoking bans
and social stigma. Bigger tobacco
companies are watching the FDA
response to Star's applications for
clues about what products they'll
be able to sell to replace the rev-
enue from cigarettes. *
The FDA won the authority in
2009 to evaluate tobacco prod-
ucts and approve some as safer
than others. But it may take the
agency another year to iron out its
guidelines for such products, and
approvals would come only after
guidelines are set.

in the striatum. The striatum drives that behavior, like a reflex

CDC: Seat belt use

ATLANTA Nearly six

in driver safety that health
officials said has helped cut

About 85 percent of adults
said they wear seat belts in a
2008 survey, up from under

requiring seat belt use.
The Centers for Disease

reported Tuesday a decline
of more than 15 percent
in non-fatal vehicle crash

Average child may
get 7 radiation

CHICAGO The first
large study to examine the
use of X-rays, CT scans and
other medical radiation in
children estimates the aver-
age child will get more than
seven radiation scans by
age 18, a potentially worri-
some trend.
Most of the scans involve
X-rays, which use relatively
little radiation. But there is
growing concern about CT
scans, which entail far more
radiation and can raise the
risk for cancer, particularly
in children.
The study found that
X-rays of the chest, hand
and foot are the most com-
mon. Forty-two percent of
children had at least one
radiation procedure and 25
percent had two or more
during the three-year study
period. Dental X-rays were
not included in the study.
More troubling is that 8
percent of the children got
at least one CT scan. And
more than 3 percent of chil-
dren got two or more CT

Study questions
defib benefits

CHICAGO One in five
heart defibrillators may be
implanted for questionable
reasons without solid evi-
dence that the devices will
help, according to a first-of-
its-kind analysis.
Implanted defibrillators
shock the heart back into
a normal rhythm when it
starts beating irregularly.
They can prevent sud-
den death in people with
advanced heart failure, but
researchers haven't found a
benefit for other patients.
Patients who've had a
recent heart attack or recent
bypass surgery aren't good
candidates for defibrillators,
for example.
Guidelines don't rec-
ommend them for people
newly diagnosed with heart
failure either and those so
sick that they have very lim-
ited life expectancies won't
be helped.
But in the new study,
which examined nearly four
years of national data, 22
percent of the implant sur-
geries were in patients who
fit one of those categories.

Alomar was picked on
90 percent of the ballots
by the Baseball Writers'
Association of America.

record 10 Gold Gloves at

second base, hit .300 and
helped the Toronto Blue
Jays win titles in 1992-93.
Blyleven was picked on
79.7 percent it takes 75
percent to reach the shrine.
The great curveballer won
287 games, threw 60 shut-
outs and is fifth with 3,701
strikeouts. This was his
14th time on the ballot and
his career stats have gotten
a boost in recent years by
sabermetricians who have
new ways to evaluate base-
ball numbers.
"It's been 14 years of pray-
ing and waiting," Blyleven
said in a conference call.
"And thank the baseball
writers of America for, I'm
going to say, finally getting
it right"

poorly in the election, with
BBWAA members appar-

bulky hitters who posted

big numbers in the 1990s
and 2000s.
"The writers are saying
that this was the Steroids
Era, like they have done

said. "They've kind of made
their point. It doesn't sur-
prise me."
"Guys cheated," he said.
"They cheated themselves

played clean. I think we

Richt freed

up for football

Georgia coach Mark Richt
said Wednesday he had
been "freed up" from some
administrative duties to
spend more time on foot-
Coming off a 6-7 finish
in 2010, the Bulldogs' first
losing record in 14 years,
Richt applauded changes
put in place by athletic
director Greg McGarity.
He said the moves give
him more time to "study
the game of football and
be an expert and be on the
cutting edge."
"That revives me, that
rejuvenates me, that
excites me in a big way,"
Richt said.
Richt says he'll have
more time because of for-
mer strength coach Dave
Van Halanger's role in a
new mentor program for
athletes and John Eason's
job as a liaison to academ-

looked all too familiar.
Quarterback Denard
Robinson couldn't consis-
tently make the sensational
plays he did during a jaw-
dropping start to the sea-
son. And Michigan's young
defense, which ranked
among the nation's worst,
was overmatched again.
"There's a thought of
getting a defensive-mind-
ed everything," Brandon
said when asked if he was
looking for a head coach
who emphasizes defense.

Rodriguez finished 7-6,
losing six of the last eight
games. The improvement
wasn't enough from his 5-
7 finish last year and the
Michigan-record nine loss-
es in his debut season in
Ann Arbor.
He was 1-11 against
ranked teams and 0-6 com-
bined against rivals Ohio
State and Michigan State.
The season had clearly
weighed on Rodriguez.
He surprised support-
ers and his players at the
team's postseason banquet
when he broke down and
cried, talking about the toll
his job had on his family,
then quoted the Bible and
Josh Groban and played a
song from the musician in
a surreal scene.

Tigers basketball

Columbia High picked up
its second district victory
of the season with a 60-44
win on the road against Ed
White High on Tuesday.
The Tigers began the
game on a 20-4 run in the
first quarter behind Marcus
Amerson's 10 points.
Columbia also made
the most of the free-throw
attempts, converting on 24-
of-29 tries.
Marquez Marshall led
the Tigers with 19 points
in the contest and Amerson
finished with 14. Nigel
Atkinson also scored in

double figures with 11
Javonte Foster had 11
points and Markem Gaskins
had two points.
"It was a well-rounded,
team effort," Columbia
coach Horace Jefferson
said. 'That was probably
one of the better teams we
have played this year, and
we matched up well against
SThough he didn't make
a big impact on the score-
board, Jefferson said
Laremy Tunsil's presence
was felt on the court. The
big man for the Tigers
grabbed 15 rebounds in the
"Laremy's lateral move-
ment was impressive,"

Jefferson said. "He was
going up against a foot-
ball prospect in Rashod

Taking illicit photos could

land girl in legal hot water


0 ^ Q

DEAR ABBY: I would
like to share some im-
portant information with
"Don't Want to Lose Him
in the U.S.A." (Nov. 10).
She's the young lady who
is being pressured by her
boyfriend to take photos of
her classmates in the girls'
locker room.
The students at the high
school where I teach re-
cently attended a program
on Internet and online
safety. One of the things
that really surprised them
was learning cell phone
calls don't just go from
one phone to another. All
text messages and calls
are transmitted through
cell phone towers, which
route the calls or texts to
the company's server. All
sent messages and photos
are stored on the provid-
er's server. This means
pictures deleted from the
phone are never really de-
leted and text messages
and photos never go away.
They still exist in the vir-
tual world.
Should those pictures
become the center of a
court case, the information
is subject to "discovery."
With the right equipment,
law enforcement can re-
trieve deleted photos from
anyone's cellphone.

woman's low self-esteem
should be addressed. Her
boyfriend is holding her
hostage to his wishes and
desires, and will probably
always do so if she con-
tinues to stay with him.
It's important that "Don't
Want to Lose Him" learns
to love the principled, intel-
ligent person she already
is and continue to stand
up for herself. Eventually,
someone will appreciate
her good qualities and she
won't have to settle for
less than she deserves.
Want to Lose Him" should
report this to a trusted
adult or school counselor.
At the very least, this girl
needs to know she will be
doing a great service if she
lets the other girls know
so they can be on the look-
out for someone sneaking
a camera or cell phone
into their locker room.
She could also use some
support and affection that
doesn't come from a ma-
nipulative, self-serving
"boyfriend." LISA- IN

ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Let your intu-
ition guide you and your
love and compassion be
your driving force. The less
time you dwell on what isn't
going your way, the further
ahead you will be. It's time
to trust and to have confi-
dence in your ability to suc-
ceed. ****-
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): Protect your
assets. Don't contribute
or donate to a cause about
which you know little. Ex-
pect someone to try to take
advantage of you by playing
on your vulnerability. Focus
more on learning and dis-
cussing new possibilities.
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): You stand to advance if
you are willing to go the ex-
tra mile regarding etnploy-
ment. Don't let someone
who is competing against
you make you look bad
when you know you have
more to offer. Secure your
position by taking on more
responsibility. *****
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Opportunities
are abundant. Don't be shy
or let someone else present
what you have to offer. Love
is on the rise and nurturing
a relationship or starting
something new with some-
one you are attracted to will

Eugenia Last

turn out well. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): Strict budgeting and
knowing when to say no will
be required if you want to
avoid a financial problem.
Make personal changes
that will help build your
confidence. 'Altering your
plans will lead to meeting
someone you find interest-
ing. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Put your knowledge
and expertise to the test
and you will make financial
gains. Work related to ser-
vices you can offer will al-
low you to make extra cash.
Don't underestimate your
competition. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Don't start arguments
or disagree with people
who are set in their ways.
It's best to keep the peace
and go about your own busi-
ness. Discipline will play a
role in finishing what you
start and getting what you
want *****-k
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Your confidence
will be required. Don't allow
anyone to unnerve you or
cause you to second-guess
what you should do next
Follow your own path. An
emotional issue must not

stand in your way or slow
you down. **
22-Dec. 21): Don't di-
vulge any information that
might be used against you.
A problem with someone
you work with or have to
rely on will leave you in an
awkward position. Prepare
to take on added responsi-
bilities. ****
22-Jan. 19): Take the
initiative and honor the re-
sponsibilities you have tak-
en on. What you offer now
will make a difference to
someone. Make the effort
and do your best. The ap-
preciation you receive will
far outweigh the cost. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): The past is where
to begin if you want to make
the right choice now. It's
never too late to make a dif-
ference or to make amends
for something you aren't
proud of doing. Your ability
to turn things around be-
gins now. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Let your in-
tuition guide you but don't
make any impulsive moves.
Keeping the peace and tak-
ing time to enjoy what un-
folds will be more important
than the end result Learn
from the experience. ***
