CHS's Trevor

Tyler displays

a true passion

for his work

By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter.com
revor Tyler, recently
named 2012 Columbia
County School District
Teacher of the Year,
knows what he most
enjoys about teaching.
"I get to come to work and talk
about science all day long," he said.
"That to me is just neat."
Tyler, a marine science teacher
for grades 10 through 12, has been
teaching for seven-and-a-half years
at Columbia High School, his first
and only post. He also coaches the
school's varsity boys soccer team.
A CHS graduate himself, Tyler's
journey to winning district Teacher
of the Year began when he was a
student in Columbia High's class-
rooms he was taught and inspired
by some of the same teachers who
nominated him for the school level
award.
"I was their student and then
became their colleague, and now
they think of me as someone who
is one of the best teachers in the
school," Tyler said. "And now to be
Teacher of the Year for the whole
Columbia County, it's almost unfath-
omable that I'm that person."
Tyler's initial experience with
teaching came as a teacher's assis-
tant while earning his biology degree
at Erskine College in South Carolina.
That experience spurred him to pur-

pled guilty to grand theft

Circuit Judge Paul
Bryan handed the sen-
tence against Pamela
Marie Foxx after hearing a
plea agreement. The pris-
on term is followed by 15
years of probation.


A"o FFoxx ,

worked 15
years as a
legal assis-
Stant since
2003 at the

became a paralegal at the
office in 2005.


The judge also required
Foxx to reimburse

sue his teaching certification after
he graduated.
He began teaching biology at CHS
in 2003 and has taught a variety of
science classes since.
Now Tyler invests his passion
for science into his only subject
- marine science.
.'To be able to stand here and talk
about standards that relate to the
world and what we live in and the
organisms that are here and how
they interact, I don't know what
could be better," he said.
Tyler infuses respect and care for
his students into his teaching, but
he said a love for science is the most
important thing to exhibit.

"If I don't have passion for it, then
why should they?" he asked.
His lessons involve activities out-
side the norm, like cooking a low
country boil meal when learning
about estuaries or taking students
on a collection tour along the Gulf of
Mexico coast.
Tyler uses his lifelong experience
playing soccer and his time spent
coaching as another way to encour-
age students to accomplish their
academic and athletic goals.

Utility committee

votes in favor of

rate adjustment


Price increases
have residents
concerned.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. c6m
The Columbia County
Utility Committee plans
to recommend that a local
wastewater utility provid-
ing services at Eastside
Retirement Village be
granted a provisional fran-
chise and be allowed to
adjust its rates.
Tuesday night the util-
ity committee met at the
Eastside Village Clubhouse
with an estimated 40
Eastside Retirement Village
residents attending the
meeting.
The sewage system is
owned by Kirby D. Morgan
Inc. (KDM) and provides
services for approximately
219 customers in the neigh-
borhood.
During the meeting,
David Kraus, Columbia
County Commission
senior staff assistant, gave
a presentation with findings
and facts related to the pro-
poi0ed rate adjustment and
then gave a staff recom-
mendation before opening
the floor up for comments.
Only one customer,
Ethel Stiles, former head
of neighborhood's hom-
eowners association com-
mented on the proposed


rate adjustment. Stiles said
the rates are too high and
they shouldn't have raised
them. She said the rates
needed to be lowered even
more and asked whether
there was cap on proposed
increase amounts. She
said the Public Service
Commission only allowed
'small annual increases
and this- increase exceeds
what the Public Service
Commission
would have
approved.
In July
2008,
KDM rates
increased
from $24.15 Kraus
to $35.
In January 2010, KDM
increased its rates again
from $35 to $45. Several
residents filed complaints
and the county contacted
KDM.
The utility was under the
jurisdiction of the Public
Service Commission until
May 2007 when Columbia
County took over regulat-
ing local, small, private
utilities.
The staff recommenda-
tion was to stipulate to the
rates proposed by Morgan
and do a provisional fran-
chise agreement. The utility
committee voted in favor of
making the recommenda-
tion to the board of county

Lohan charged with felony theft

LOS ANGELES I __ a I


Prosecutors charged
Lindsay Lohan Wednesday
with felony grand theft
of a $2,500 necklace a
case that could return the
troubled starlet to jail rather than the
big screen.
The "Mean Girls" star was due to
be arraigned later in the day. Her
lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, has
denied the allegation.
Prosecutors want Superior Court
Judge Keith Schwartz to set bail at
$20,000, according to the complaint.
If convicted, Lohan could face up to,
three years in state prison.
The charge was the latest and
most serious legal problem for
the actress, who remains on proba-
tion in a 2007 drunken driving case.
Police and prosecutors claim Lohan,
24, took the necklace from a store in
the beachside community of Venice on
Jan. 22, weeks after she was released
from a rehab facility where she was
accused of misconduct
The former Disney star has strug-
gled with the terms of her probation,
and was sentenced to rehab twice
and jail twice last year.
The jewelry case is not Lohan's
only concern. Prosecutors in
Riverside County are consider-
ing whether to charge the actress
with battery for an altercation with
a rehab worker at the Betty Ford
Center in December.
The worker was fired after giving
an on-camera interview to celebrity
website TMZ, but district attorney's
spokesman John Hall has said the
allegation against Lohan was under
review.
The threat of incarceration has
hung over Lohan since May, when
a judge determined she violated her
probation by missing weekly alcohol
education classes.
Her three stints in jail in the past
three years have all been shortened

Simpson and Pete Wentz are falling
out of their marriage.
Court records show Simpson
filed for divorce from the Fall Out

Angeles.
In a joint statement, the former
couple say they plan to remain
friends and that their first priority is
their 2-year-old son, Bronx.
Simpson cited irreconcilable dif-
ferences for the breakup and is seek-
ing physical custody of their son.

Orange crop
forecast shrinks
ST. PETERSBURG -
Citrus farmers in Florida
are continuing to feel the
effects of December's
freezing temperatures,
according to a report
released Wednesday by
the U.S. Department of
Agriculture.
Total orange production
is down 1 percent, or 2
million boxes of fruit, the
report said.
December's cold
weather was nearly instan-
taneous in destroying deli-
cate crops like sweet corn
and green beans; many
thousands of acres were
lost. But it has taken farm-
ers and citrus experts sev-
eral weeks to determine
the impact on citrus.
About 90 percent of
Florida's orange crop is
used for juice, and proces-
sors won't tally deliveries
and the amount of juice
until June. Damage to trees
also is slow to reveal itself.
"We don't know exactly
what the final number is
going to be," said Andrew
Meadows, spokesman for
Florida Citrus Mutual,
the state's largest citrus
grower organization. 'This
is the February snapshot."
Meadows said that
because of the cold, some
fruit is smaller which
means more fruit can fit
into boxes, resulting in
fewer boxes overall.
The USDA report says
early and midseason cit-
rus varieties in Florida
shrunk by 1 million to 66
million while the projec-
tion for Valencia oranges
also decreased by 1 million
boxes to 72 million boxes
this season.

boss will be flexible about
his spending proposals.
Budget director Jerry
McDaniel, a holdover from
former Gov. Charlie Crist's
administration, told the
Senate Budget Committee
on Wednesday that Scott is
under no illusion lawmak-
ers will pass everything
he's proposed.
Scott on Monday rolled
out a $65.9 billion budget
proposal that makes deep
spending cuts.
Education would take
the biggest hit and Scott
also wants to cut property
taxes that support public
schools.
Both of those recom-
mendations drew opposi-
tion, and McDaniel agreed
they'd lead to teacher
layoffs.
The panel's chairman,
Sen. JD Alexander, also
turned thumbs down on
Scott's proposal to pass a
two-year instead of annual

Amber Alert for
toddler cancelled
PENSACOLA An
Amber Alert has been
cancelled for 17-month-old
Keith Squaire Jr., who was
believed to be with his
mother's ex-boyfriend.
Police said the child's
29-year-old mother,
Monique Salter, was visit-
ing friends Tuesday when
her ex-boyfriend, 36-year-


old Keith Squaire Sr.,
showed up. He asked to
take the child to see some
friends.
Salter told police
Squaire called a short time
later and said she would
never see the baby again.
She called 911 about 9
p.m. and an Amber Alert
was issued.

2 UF swimmers

ORLANDO Two
University of Florida
swimmers were indefi-
nitely suspended from the

on shoplifting charges at

Authorities said
juniors Lily Ramirez of
Gainesville and Daniela
Victoria of Plantation
were arrested Saturday
at The Florida Mall.
According to an Orange
County Sheriff's Office
report, they are accused
of taking two jack-
ets worth $130 from
Nordstrom's.
Store employees alert-
ed deputies, who pulled
over the women as they
left the mall. Officials
said the merchandise was
returned to the store.
Ramirez earned academ-
ic All-America honors dur-
ing her first two seasons at
the university.

Authorities


respond to


hostage scare


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

Lake City police officers,
armed with assault rifles
add shotguns, cordoned
off a local apartment com-
plex for almost two hours
Tuesday as they responded
to possible armed hostage-
taking scenario. Officers
also sought assistance from
the Sheriff's SWAT team as
they prepared for a poten-
tial gunbattle.
But less that two hours
after being dispatched,
officials said they found
the woman, who was sup-
posedly taken against her
will at gunpoint. She was
unharmed. And she was
not at the apartment com-
plex.
According to the Lake
City Police Department,
officers were dispatched at
around 5:21 p.m. to Building
11 of the Windsong apart-
ment complex on Sympathy
Loop after receiving a call,
from a man who said he
had dropped a woman off at
at the apartment complex.
She promised to immedi-
ately come out of the build-
ing. After 25-30 minutes,
she had not returned. The


man said he called her
cell phone and heard her
crying-and she allegedly
said she was being held
against her will. The man
then called law enforce-
ment, but authorities said
the man didn't know which
apartment she was in.
Police then set up a
perimeter, blocked roads
leading to- and from the
building and evacuated res-
idents from Building 11.
"We also contacted
the CCSO and asked for
their assistance with their
SWAT team to respond
in case there was. a hos-
tage situation," said Capt.
John Blanchard, Lake City
Police Department public
information officer.
After repeated attempts
to call the woman's cell
phone, authorities were
finally able to talk to her,
but she was not at the build-
ing. She wasn't even at the
apartment complex.
"Before the (SWAT) team
arrived," Blanchard said,
"we were able to verify the
woman was safe."
Authorities did not iden-
tify the woman.
"We're still investigat-
ing the truthfulness of the

Apartments, while other Lake City Police officers search the

complaint," Blanchard said.
"Nobody got hurt and we're
not looking for anyone."
"Law enforcement met
with the woman to ensure
she was safe and, after
speaking with her, authori-


ties learned she was not
being held against her will,"
Blanchard said. "She told
us the story the complain-

WEST PALM BEACH A
Palm Beach county jail deputy
faces charges after authorities
say he encouraged fighting
between two high-risk inmates.
Derrick Antonio Daniels was
arrested Wednesday and charged
with tampering with evidence,
culpable negligence, aggravated
battery and three counts of offi-
cial misconduct He was being


held on $17,000 bail.
According to a report, the
38-year-old jail guard put two
inmates, one of whom had been
threatening to kill the other, in
the same cell on Dec. 12 so they
could fight. One inmate stabbed
the other with a pencil and cut
him with a razor.
Daniels didn't report the fight,
.but.aother jail.guard saw the
inmate's wounds the next day
and reported the incident.

Sibley, who conducted
the audit of the sheriff's
office, had been retained
by the grand jury to assist
in analyzing the Sheriff's
Office financial records.
Foxx is also required to
indemnify the Columbia
County Sheriff's Office for
$105,185.
In addition to the 15 years
of probation, the court said
Foxx forfeits her rights
to pension benefits. Foxx
was working as a county
*employee when the crime
was committed and could
have participated in the
state retirement system.
Foxx also agreed to
write letters of apology to
Sheriff Mark Hunter and
other Columbia County
Sheriff's Office employees,
as well as to the Columbia
County Board of County
Commissioners and former
Sheriffs Bill Gootee and
Frank Owens.
The change of plea and
sentencing hearing took
place at the Columbia
County Courthouse


Monday and lasted over an
hour.
The judge ordered a brief
recess after Foxx's attor-
ney asked that she be held
in another jail, other than
Columbia County, pending
her relocation to a state
correctional facility. Foxx
was slated to be taken to
the Suwannee County Jail
before her transfer to a
state correctional facility.
A Columbia County
grand jury indicted Foxx
in August with one count
of grand theft of more than
$100,000 and one count of
official misconduct
The indictment said that
between 2002 and April
2010, Foxx stole cash that
had been entrusted to her
from the Sheriff's Office.
It also charged Foxx with
making false entries on offi-
cial records.
Foxx was arrested on
April 24 after admitting dur-
ing an interview with detec-
tives that she took official
funds and deposited them
into.her personal account.

Obama

must regain

his voice

on Egypt

W e are a long
way from
knowing how
Egypt will
turn out The
government is using all of its
power including a promised
15 percent raise for federal
workers to try to hang on.
The opposition is courageously
pushing back, and, on Tuesday,
it drew thousands of support-
ers to Liberation Square.
The United States and the
European Union may not have
been able to wheedle or push
President Hosni Mubarak from
power. Still, they badly miscal-
culated when they endorsed
Egypt's vice president, Omar
Suleiman, to lead the transition
to democracy.
Suleiman may talk sweetly to
Washington and Brussels. But
he appears far more interested
in maintaining as much of the
old repressive order as he can
get away with.
That is unacceptable to
Egypt's people,. and it should
be unacceptable to Egypt's
Western supporters.
President Obama said the
right things last week when
he demanded that democratic
change in Egypt start "now."
Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton's recent state-
mentsthat change would "take
some time" have taken the pres-
sure off. Obama needs to.regain
his voice and press Suleiman to
either begin a serious process of
reform or get out of the way.
The protesters have won
some important concessions. ,
They forced Mubarak to for-
sake re-election. Mubarak's son
and Suleiman, a former intel-
ligence chief, also will not run.
On Saturday, the government
opened a dialogue with the
opposition including the long-
banned Muslim Brotherhood.
The emergency law must be
lifted and Egyptians guaranteed
freedom of speech and asso-
ciation.'All detained protesters
must be freed and the,govern-
ment-allied forces who viciously
attacked demonstrators last
week must be prosecuted.

Doing tightrope act on Egypt


Ladies and gentle-
men and children of
all ages! Focus your
attention high above
the center ring we
call Egypt. Uncle Sam's Super
Circus superstars, Barack and
Hillary, are performing on a
diplomatic tightrope it's their
first time without a safety net!"
Oh no. Their diplomatic
tightrope is being buffeted by
powerful crosscurrents of global
politics and they are tipping dan-
gerously to one side. Oh good.
They've regained their balance.
Oh woe. Now they are leaning
too far the other way. Okay.
They've recovered again.
Now, as the act goes into yet
another week, we are watching
and holding our breath. And,
yes, we are enjoying the show.
Uncle Sam's performers thrill
us by sometimes seeming to
tilt a bit too far toward pushing
Egypt's Hosni Mubarak out, and
then by tilting the other way,
seeming to want him to stay
awhile more because he can
keep things stable. For now.
Stability is crucial as Egypt
teeters precariously at the tiptop
of its own pyramid of gover-
nance. Chaos may be the only
way militant Muslims have a
chance of gaining control, many
experts say. Most of those who
have filled the streets in Cairo
and Alexandria are seem to des-
perately want democracy and
individual liberties that would
be taken from them by a gov-
ernment under Islamic law. But
it isunclear whether the word in
the Egyptian streets now is that
Uncle Sam is on their side and
working to help them achieve
their goals.
And that is unsettling. We
can not yet know whether the

If it isn't broke,
don't fix it
Our Columbia County
Commission, with
the help of the
county manager,
has done it again.
It is not like they didn't iave
enough on their plate to begin
with, so they decided to bring
in the IDA under their wing and
"fix" it. What a shame.
Their actions would have
made sense if any of them knew
anything about running the
IDA to begin with. This latest
attempt to add to their empire
might make some wonder how
many of these people involved
on the county level are suffering
from megalomania.
The result, as I see it, is that
they now have inherited some-
thing they know nothing about,
but will try and handle it any-
way, regardless of who is hired
to take the place of Mr. Poole.
It seems to me their action on
this matter left a big void in the
Economic Development depart-
ment with Mr. Poole stepping

Obama administration's per-
formances that seemed to tilt,
first this way then that way, will
be proven to have done more
good than harm in the struggle
to achieve a stable, democratic
Egypt President Obama and
Secretary of State Clinton have
struggled to find sure footing.
At times their act was skillfully
choreographed. But there were
unintended missteps that sent
mixed messages to 83 million
Egyptians who have never been
very sure that Uncle Sam had
their best interests at heart.
While Egyptian protesters
demanded Mubarak resign now,
President Obama thought he
had it calibrated correctly (with
calculated imprecision in the
name of wiggle room) when he
spoke privately with Mubarak
and then told the world that
Egypt's transition to democracy
must begin "now."
Then Obama sent an emis-
sary, former Ambassador
Frank Wisner, an old friend of
Mubarak's, to deliver a message
personally. You'd assume his
instruction was to tell Mubarak
he must go or at least'let Vice
President Omar Suleiman make
decisions while the Army pre-
vents pro-Mubarak government
thugs from creating violence.
Now we doh't know if
Wisner acted in private more
as Mubarak's pal or Obama's

Don't be concerned
about immigrants
I've read, with interest, that
Florida is looking at enacting
a law similar to Arizona on
illegal immigrants. I've also
read that this will lead to what
is known as profiling. It is my
opinion that most law enforce-
ment officers have more to
do than look for illegal immi-
grants.
I do think the law will help
us over time. If we need immi-
grant labor, we can get legal
immigrants to do the work.
They pay taxes, work and are
educating their children to
become good U.S. citizens. As


emissary. Just days after meet-
ing with Mubarak, Wisner told
a room full of world diplomats:
"President Mubarak's continued
leadership is critical it's his
opportunity to write his own
legacy."
Oh no. Obama and Clinton
spokespeople rushed to say
Wisner was just speaking for
himself, not the United States.
But was Wisner given firm
instructions on what to tell
Mubarak? And if so, did he stick
to them?
All of this tightrope tilting
gives great circus. But it doesn't
work best in what is really the
greatest show-on earth the
big tent of global politics. That
.continues to give us cause for
concern.
Because we aren't really wor-
ried about Obama and Clinton
- Uncle Sam's superstars will be
fine. But we are worried about,
how what happens in Egypt will
affect our friend Who is not even
inside the region's big tent, but
is surrounded by it Israel.
Whatever emerges in Egypt
will produce a wave of change
that surges through the Arab
states of the Middle East. Long
after Mubarak is history and
the tightrope performances
are forgotten, all the chatter on
the Internet will be about the
path the new Egypt has chosen,
for itself and in a sense for the
Middle East
The leaders of the new Egypt
must embrace this over-arching
truth: Remaining Israel's peace
treaty partner is their only path
to continued security and even-
tual prosperity.

Hikers


get day


in Iran's


courts


hikers arrested on
the Iranian border
in July 2009 and
charged with espio-
nage and illegally entering Iran
finally got their day in court
Their appearance had some
of the more dismaying aspects
of Iranian jurisprudence. Their
lawyer was forbidden to meet
with them in advance of the
trial; the proceedings were held
behind closed doors; and out-
side observers, including the
Swiss ambassador to Tehran
who represents U.S. interests,
were barred from the court
The two, Shane Bauer and
Josh Fattal, both 28, who face
maximum sentences of 10 years
if convicted, are being tried
in the Tehran Revolutionary
Court, normally reserved for
the most serious cases. That
court, indeed the judge presid-
ing over their cases, sentenced
to death a number of opposition
figures for protesting the rigged
presidential election of 2009.
There is a third figure in the
case, Sarah Shourd, 32. She was
released on $500,000 bail last
September and, by then hav-
ing firsthand experience with
the Iranian justice system, she
declined to return for her trial.
She is being tried in absentia.
All three entered not-guilty
pleas and, after five hours, the
court adjourned until another
day yet to be determined. So
two of them remain where they
have been since the Iranians ,
took them into custody in
limbo.
Shourd was an English
teacher in Damascus. Bauer,
her fiance, was a freelance jour-
nalist. And Fattal was visiting
a friend when they made the
ill-fated decision to go hiking in
Iraqi Kurdistan near the Iranian
border.
No one, including very
likely the Iranian government,
thinks the trio was engaged in
espionage. President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad even urged the
court to "look at the case with
maximum leniency."
But the court answers
to Iran's ruling clerics, and
Ahmadinejad has only as much
influence as the clerics will
allow him.
The best guess as to why
the clerics are pursuing these
trumped-up charges is that they
want to use the Americans as
bargaining chips, perhaps to
win release of Iranians held by
the U.S. here and in Iraq or to
get some easing of the sanc-
tions imposed because of Iran's
nuclear program.
Perhaps the clerics see the
case as Iran boldly standing up
to the U.S. But most observers
see it for what it is another in
a series of national embarrass-
ments dating back to the 1979
revolution.

BRIEFS


NY congressman
abruptly resigns
WASHINGTON A
New York congressman
abruptly resigned his seat
Wednesday, saying he was
quitting because he regret-
ted actions that have hurt
his family and others.
The gossip web-
site Gawker reported
Wednesday that Rep.
Christopher Lee, a mar-
ried two-term Republican
lawmaker, had sent a
shirtless photo of himself
to a woman he met on
Craigslist.
Lee said in an e-mailed
statement that his resigna-
tion was effective imme-
diately. The statement
offered no confirmation or
details of a Craigslist post-
ing.
An anonymous woman
described as a 34-year-old
Maryland resident and
government employee
provided Gawker with
e-mails she said were an
exchange between her and
Lee in response to an ad

Obama to propose
cuts in heating aid
WASHINGTON _
President Barack Obama
wants to cut $2.5 billion
from a $5 billion home
heating aid program for
the poor, two people famil-
iar with his 2012 budget
proposal said Wednesday,
halving the popular fund as
he looks for places to rein
in federal spending.
The proposal would
cut the Low-Income
Home Energy Assistance
Program to its 2008 level of
about $2.5 billion.
The individuals, includ-
ing a congressional aide
who was briefed on the
proposal, discussed the
details on condition of ano-
nymity because Obama's
spending plan has not
been issued. It was being
released on Monday, and
covers the budget year
beginning Oct. 1.

Pirates capture
oil supertanker
NAIROBI, Kenya -
Somali pirates captured a
Greek-flagged supertanker
carrying an estimated
$150 million worth of oil
to the Gulf of Mexico on
Wednesday, the second
successful attack against an
oil tanker by sea bandits in
two days, officials said.
Such vessels can com-
mand higher ransoms
because of the value of the
crude on board. Owners of
the oil may want to resolve
hostage situations quickly,
particularly if oil prices are
dropping, a situation that
can cost owners millions
of dollars more than the
pirate ransom will.
Still, ransom prices are
on the rise. One last year
reached $9.5 million, and
the increasing prizes have
provided even more incen-
tive for pirates to launch
attacks despite stepped-up
patrols by an international
flotilla of warships.
Pirates currently hold
29 ships and roughly 660
hostages.

House rejects
Patriot Act tools
WASHINGTON The
House on Tuesday failed to
extend the life of three sur-
veillance tools that are key
to the nation's post-Sept. 11
anti-terror law, a slipup for
the new Republican leader-
ship that miscalculated the
level of opposition.
The House voted 277-148


to keep the three provi-
sions of the USA Patriot
Act on the books until
Dec. 8. But Republicans
brought up the bill under
a special expedited proce-
dure requiring a two-thirds
majority, and the vote was
seven short of reaching
that level.

White House warns Egypt's leaders


By BEN FELLER and MATTHEW LEE
Associated Press

WASHINGTON The White
House on Wednesday warned
Egypt's leaders to expect unre-
lenting protests unless they start
to show real reforms and a transi-
tion to a freer society, dismissing
governmental concessions so far
as not having met even the mini-
mum threshold of what people
want.
Obama administration officials
were also increasingly blunt in
describing the limits of their lever-
age, reasserting that the United
States is not seeking to dictate
events in Egypt and that it can-
not.
"We're not going to be able to
force them do anything," White
House spokesman Robert Gibbs
told reporters.
Still, Gibbs and other officials
called on Egypt's leaders to end
the harassment of activists, to
broaden the makeup of their nego-
tiations with opposition leaders, to
lift a repressive emergency law,
and to take up a series of other
moves the Obama government
has requested for days.
Obama himself reinforced that
message in a phone call with
King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia on
Wednesday in which the president
emphasized the need for "immedi-
ate steps toward an orderly transi-
tion that is meaningful, lasting,
legitimate and responsive," the
White House said.
The comments came as the
Obama administration sought to
get out a unified message and
to maintain its tricky diplomatic
balance of suggesting what must
happen in Egypt without prescrib-
ing exactly how it must happen,

ers at the White House in Washington on Tuesday.


who must do it or how progress
will be measured.
Thousands of state workers and
impoverished Egyptians launched
fresh strikes and protests around
the country on Wednesday over
their economicwoes, despite warn-
ings from Egyptian Vice President
Omar Suleiman that they won't be
tolerated much longer.
Gibbs suggested that some
Egyptian leaders thought they
could wait out the protesters by
offering up some concessions and
assuming "life will return to nor-
mal" after years of repression.
"I think that's largely been
answered by a greater number
of people, representing a greater
cross-section of Egyptian society,
who have come out seeking their


grievances to be addressed," he
said. "Those are not likely to dis-
sipate until the government takes
some genuine steps."
Suleiman has promised conces-
sions such as new committees
on constitutional amendments and
oversight of proposed reforms.
At the State Department, spokes-
man PJ. Crowley said that when
U.S. officials criticize Egypt's gov-
ernment or advise it to take steps
like removing the 30-year-old emer-
gency law, that does not mean the
United States is meddling.
"We don't see that as interfer-
ence," Crowley said.
Obama's. team has been grap-
pling with complaints that its mes-
sage on Egypt has been inconsis-
tent and muddled, particularly on


whether the administration has
become more accepting of a slower
transition from President Hosni
Mubarak's power to a new govern-
ment
On Wednesday, a White House
official and a State Department offi-
cial held a joint conference call with
the media, backing each other's
points. They insisted the Obama
administration has been clear all
along about its core points of push-
ing for nonviolence, respect for uni-
versal rights and lasting, meaning-
ful change in Egypt
"The theory of the case has
remained consistent across the
statements of this government,"
said Jake Sullivan, director of policy
planning at the State Department
Israeli Minister of Defense
Ehud Barak was in Washington on
Wednesday to discuss Egypt and
other issues with Secretary of State
Hilary Clinton, Defense Secretary
Robert Gates and White House
national security adviser Tom
Donilon. Egypt has a peace treaty.
with Israel and the future of that
relationship is now a worrisome
concern.
Israeli officials, moreover, have
been critical of what they've seen as
Washington's willingness to aban-
.don Mubarak. The White House
said the U.S. officials "stressed the
United States' unshakeable commit-
ment to Israel's security, including
through our continued support for
Israel's military" during their meet-
ing with Barak.
Meanwhile, in an interview with
"PBS NewsHour," Egyptian Foreign
Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said
he was furious at what he described
as confusing messages from the
Obama administration in the early
days of the protests, which are
now in their third week.

Second blizzard howls t Fear Nt


through Ark. and Okla.


By TIM TALLEY
Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY Another power-
ful blizzard howled through the nation's
midsection Wednesday, piling up to 2 feet
of new snow on parts of Oklahoma and
Arkansas still struggling to clean up from
last week's epic storm.
The blowing snow brought traffic to
a halt, and the National Guard was sum-
moned to rescue stranded motorists.
Subzero wind chills forced ranchers to
work desperately to protect their herds.
As the storm barreled out of the Plains,
it took aim at the Deep South, which was
expected to get up to five inches of snow.
At least two traffic deaths were blamed
on the system.
' About 200 truck drivers sought shel-
ter at a truck stop at the intersection of
Interstate 44 and U.S. Highway 69, about
60 miles northeast of Tulsa.
"We have a 20-acre parking lot," said
owner Katrina Franks. "But it's just utter
chaos trying to get them started and
keep them moving."
Truck driver Mike Mallory was haul-
ing chemicals from Houston to Iowa
when he pulled into the Big Cabin Travel
Plaza as the weather worsened.
"It was a rude awakening when I got
up this morning," Mallory said. "I can't
even see the tollway from the parking
lot."
The heaviest snow was concen-
trated in the northeast corner of the


state, where the towns of Colcord and
.Spavinaw got 22 and 23 inches, respec-
tively. The deepest snow was reported
near the village of Jay, with 25 inches.
The fresh snow was especially trou-
blesome in Tulsa, where many roads
still were impassable from last week's
record 14-inch snowfall.
The previous storm kept students out
of school for at least six days. Mail, bus
and trash service were only recently
restored.
Five more inches .of snow fell
Wednesday in Tulsa, according to the
National Weather Service. That raised
the city's total for the winter to 25.9
inches, breaking the previous seasonal
record of 25.6 inches, set during the
winter of 1923-24.
More than 275 National Guard soldiers
were deployed in Humvees from armor-
ies across the state to search for stranded
motorists.
"A Humvee can get through a lot,
but we have some snow drifts that are
5 to 6 feet high," said state Emergency

Ex-DC school chief Rhee defends teacher firings


Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Former
District of Columbia public
schools chancellor Michelle
Rhee on Wednesday defended
her decision to fire 75 teachers
even though an arbitrator over-
ruled her.
Rhee, now an informal educa-
tion adviser to Florida Gov. Rick
Scott, commented on the arbitra-
tion ruling after appearing before
a Florida Senate education com-


mittee to discuss her ideas for
improving instructional quality.
She became nationally known
for closing schools and firing
about 1,000 teachers deemed to
be ineffective during her 3 1/2-
year tenure in Washington.
Arbitrator Charles Feigenbaum
on Tuesday ordered 75 fired
teachers reinstated because they
were never told why they were
being fired and had been given
no chance to dispute claims they
were ineffective.


"The arbitrator, if you look at
the ruling yesterday, said a lot
of these teachers were inef-
fective and should have been
fired," Rhee said. "The school
district is going to appeal the
decision. They're very, very
confident in their legal standing
and are confident that it will be
overturned."
Rhee also spoke in support
of legislation that would do
away with tenure for new teach-
ers in Florida. It also would


set up a merit pay system for
teachers based heavily on test
scores. The Legislature passed
a similar bill last year but it
was vetoed by then-Gov. Charlie
Crist after protests across the
state by teachers, their unions
and parents. The new legisla-
tion, though, mirrors Florida's
proposal for its $700 million
federal "Race to the Top" grant
that was drafted in consultation
with union'officials.
Most teachers are "doing a


great job," Rhee said, but she
cited a Stanford University study
that concluded the United States
would rise to the top among
nations in student achievement
if the lowest performing 5 per-
cent to 8 percent of teachers
were replaced with those who
are average.
"As long as we have practices
in place that protect ineffective
teachers we are not going to be
able to significantly move student
achievement levels," Rhee said.

after a German anatomist,
referring to an accessory
duct that transports bile
from the working tissue
of the liver (as opposed to
supporting or connective
tissue) into the gallbladder.
Unfortunately, with injury
to the duct, a devastating
outcome can occur about a
week after resection as bile
drains into the abdominal
cavity. My sympathies are
with you.
DEAR DR. GOTI'T: My
60-year-old friend seems
to suffer from frequent
herpes-simplex-virus out-
breaks on her buttock. She
uses hydrogen peroxide
and covers the sore with a
bandage. Is she supposed
to cover the area? Is there
a medication she can apply
to shorten the duration and
repetition of bouts? Is there
any food she should avoid
to prevent attacks? Please
illuminate me on this prob-
lem.
DEAR READER:
Genital herpes is a sexu-
ally transmitted disease
that includes sores, pain
and itching of the buttocks,
inner thighs and around
the genital area. It results
from a type of herpes sim-
plex virus that enters the
body through small breaks
in the skin or mucous
membranes. The virus is
spread primarily through
unprotected sexual contact.
Illness, stress, fatigue, fric-
tion and more can induce
outbreaks.
Contrary to common
belief, the virus dies quickly
outside the body, so it is
almost impossible to acquire
through direct contact with
toilet seats or other objects
used by an infected person.
Genital herpes can
increase the risk of con-
tracting (and transmitting)
other sexually transmitted
diseases, bladder retention,
proctids in men and more.
Your friend should make
an appointment with her
gynecologist to have her
blood tested for HSV anti-
bodies, a viral culture and
possibly a polymerase chain
reaction to determine the
specific type of HSV she has.
While there is no cure for
genital herpes, she should
receive treatment with anti-
viral medications that will
reduce the frequency and
severity of her outbreaks.

Mrs. Obama: Super Bowl


food indulgence still OK


By DARLENE SUPERVILLE
Associated Press
WASHINGTON Michelle
Obama says the cheeseburgers,
deep-dish pizza, sausages and buf-
falo wings the White House served
up for the Super Bowl have a place
in everyone's diet, despite her urg-
ings for the public to eat healthier.
"Life is about good food, at
least in America," the first lady
told NBC's 'Today" show on
Wednesday, the first anniversary
of her "Let's Move!" campaign
against childhood obesity. "I've
always talked about balance in this
campaign."
She conceded that the high-
calorie, high-fat menu raised a few
eyebrows.
But Mrs. Obama said many of
the dietary changes she's talk-
ing about don't require wholesale
changes, such as adding more
fruits and vegetables to dinner
plates and lunch boxes, helping
children exercise more and replac-
ing sugary drinks with water.
"This isn't an all-or-nothing


"This isn't an all-or-
nothing proposition
and it's important for
families not to get
caught up in that, not
to think that I can
never indulge."

proposition and it's important for
families not to get caught up in
that, not to think that I can never
indulge," she said.
The first lady fielded a few que-
ries about her husband, including
whether President Barack Obama
dyes his graying hair or is vain
about'his appearance. She replied
"no" on both counts.
"If he had known he would be
president, he would have started
dyeing his hair, like, 10 years ago,"
she said.
She described him as very fash-
ion-unaware and said she wishes


he'd wear a different color suit
sometimes or buy a new shirt.
"We cheer when he puts on
a bright-colored shirt," Mrs.
Obama said, speaking of daugh-
ters Malia and Sasha. "He cares
-very little about his appearance."
She also said her daughters
aren't on Facebook and that's
the way she likes it. Besides, at
ages 12 and 9, they are too young
to legally join the popular social
networking website. Her girls
have certain restrictions because
of Secret Service security issues,
she said.
"I'm not a big fan of young kids
having Facebook," she said. "It's
not something they need. It's not
necessary right now."
During a later appearance on
"Live! With Regis and Kelly,"
Mrs. Obama said she would
attend the April 29 royal wed-
ding of Prince William and Kate
Middleton in London if invited.
But she also said marriage is
a personal, private matter and
the couple should invite who
they want.


Strokes rising fast among |0

young and middle-aged Mn
A


By MARILYNN MARCHIONE
AP Medical Writer

LOS ANGELES -
Strokes are rising dramati-
cally among young and
middle-aged Americans
while dropping in older
ones, a sign that the obe-
sity epidemic may be start-
ing to reshape the age bur-
den of the disease.
The numbers, reported
Wednesday at an American
Stroke Association con-
ference in California,
come from the first large
nationwide study of stroke
hospitalizations by age.
Government researchers
compared hospitalizations
in 1994 and 1995 with ones
in 2006 and 2007.
The sharpest increase
- 51 percent-was among
men 15 through 34. Strokes
rose among women in this
age group, too, but not as
fast 17 percent.
"It's definitely alarm-
ing," said Dr. Ralph Sacco,
American HeartAssociation


president and a neurologist
at the University of Miami.
"We have worried for awhile
that the increased preva-
lence of obesity in children
and young adults may take
its toll in cardiovascular dis-
ease and stroke," and that
appears to be happening,
he said.
Stroke still takes its high-
est toll on older people. For
those over 65, there were
nearly 300 stroke cases
among 10,000 hospitaliza-
tions in the more recent
period studied. For males
15 to 34, there were about
15 stroke cases per 10,000,
and for girls and women in
that age group there were
about 4 per 10,000.
Several small studies had
recently suggested an omi-
nous rise among the young
and among middle-aged
women.
"We were interested in
whether we could pick
that up in a much larg-
er, nationwide dataset,"
said Dr. Mary George, a


stroke researcher at the
U.S. Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention.
They examined federal
records from a sample of
hospitals in 41 states, cov-
ering about 8 million cases
each year.
They looked at the per-
centage of all hospitaliza-
tions for stroke by gender
and in six age groups.
For every 10,000 hos-
pitalizations in 1994-95
compared with 2006-07,
strokes rose:
51 percent, from 9.8
to 14.8, among males 15
to 34 years old
*17 percent, from 3.6
to 4.2, in females 15 to 34
47 percent, from 36
to 52.9, in males 35 to 44
36 percent, from 21.9
to 30, in females 35 to 44
'"The increases seen in
children are very modest,
but they are more so in the
young adult age groups,
and we feel that deserves
further study," George
said.


No node

surgery

for some

patients

By LINDSEY TANNER
AP Medical Writer

CHICAGO Many
breast cancer patients can
skip aggressive lymph node
surgery without increasing
their chances of a recur-
rence or death if -their dis-
ease shows limited spread,
according to a study that
has prompted changes in
practice.
Under current guide-
lines, the often-debilitating
surgery is done if the can-
cer has spread outside the
breast to any lymph nodes.
In the study, rates of sur-
vival and of patients' remain-
ing cancer-free were just as
good whether the women
with limited spread in
one or two nearby nodes
- had lots more underarm
nodes removed or skipped
that major surgery.
At least 24,000 of the
180,000 U.S. women diag-
nosed every year with
breast cancer have lim-
ited spread to lymph
nodes. Under the standard
approach, they would have
a chunk of underarm tis-
sue removed to check for
further cancer spread, said
Dr. Thomas Julian, a breast
cancer specialist with West
Penn Allegheny Healthcare
System in Pittsburgh.
He was not involved in
the study.
That operation often
leaves women with lasting
arm swelling, stiffness and
pain.
The results suggest
that tens of thousands of
women could be spared
aggressive node surgery
and those troubling side
effects, said study author
Dr. Armando Giuliano,
cancer surgery chief at
the John Wayne Cancer
Institute in Santa Monica,
Calif.
"This is really a move
toward less radical sur-
gery" for breast cancer
patients, he said.
That move began sever-
al years ago when doctors
stopped routinely remov-
ing entire breasts and sur-
rounding tissue, except
for women with more
advanced disease.

Columbia High coach Craig Howard (right) looks on from the
sideline in a football game last season.


Howard offered Southern

Oregon coaching position


Coach expected
to return to home
state as Raider.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
It went from 130 candi-
dates to one as Columbia
High coach Craig Howard
was offered the head coach-
ing position at Southern
Oregon University on
Wednesday.
Howard hadn't signed
the contract as of late
Wednesday night, but the
sources say he is expected
to officially accept the job
on Thursday.
The university's website
has listed Howard as the
next head coach.
"I have been offered


the contract, but, I haven't
signed anything," Howard
said. "I hope to get a chance
to talk to my players first.
If it does come true, it's an
exciting part of my life. It's
35 miles from home and
I'm really blessed, humbled
and honored to be chosen."
Howard is expected to
make his final decision after
speaking with the Tigers'
football team around
8:30 a.m. today.
Southern Oregon
Athletic Director Matt Sayre
announced the school's
decision through the
website.
"We are excited to have
Craig join our Athletic
Department team and guide
our football program," Sayre
said. "He has an unbeliev-
able amount of passion and


excitement for this position
and. an enormous amount
of football knowledge. I
believe people will imme-
diately start to see a new
direction and attitude with
our football program and
I'm interested to see where
we can go."
Howard first came to
Columbia High from Nease
High, where he coached
Heisman Trophy winner
Tim Tebow. He compiled an
18-15-1 record in his three
seasons with the Tigers.
Howard won a state cham-
pionship with his team at
Nease.
"From our stand-
point, we wish him well,"
Donnie Harrison, assistant
principal, in charge of
athletics at Columbia High,
said.


Tigers return top players


Buiey headlines
boys tennis
team in 2011.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
New Columbia High
head tennis coach Russell
Waters knows that tennis is
an individual game, but he's
focused on teamwork.
"We're a team of individu-
als, but each individual win
counts toward a team win,"
Waters said. "We have to
work together and become
a team."
Waters is in his first year
with the Tigers, but he has
a host of returning players
to help him become familiar
with the job. Among the
returnees are the top three
players from last year's
squad.
Octavious Buiey has
locked down the top spot
for Columbia, but Waters
said the No. 2 and No. 3
single's spots are neck and
neck. Anthony Broome and
Shyam Patel are competing
for those positions.
"Octavious has pretty
much wrapped up the top
spot," Waters said. "He's
got an interesting game
with a two-handed fore-
hand. That's a good, unique
quality for him. He's com-
manded the No. 1 position..

GATORS: Smash South Carolina

the half and shot better
than 55 percent, their best
showing since November.
They maintained their large
lead atop the SEC Eastern
Division and gave Billy
Donovan his 350th victory
as the school's coach.
Florida has had its strug-
gles with South Carolina
the past few seasons,
losing three of their previ-
ous five meetings, includ-
ing a 72-69 defeat at the
O'Connell Center earlier
this year.
But Walker, Vernon
Macklin and, Chandler
Parsons combined to
shoot 20 of 28 against the
Gamecocks (13-9, 4-5).
Bruce Ellington had
14 points to lead South
Carolina, which has lost
four of its last five.
Macklin scored 16
points and Parsons had 14
points and 12 rebounds
for his third consecutive
double-double. Parsons
also had a career-high eight
assists.
The Gators, who returned
to the national rankings this
week, made sure they didn't
make the same mistakes as
a month ago against South
Carolina, when they trailed
by double digits in the
opening half and couldn't
catch up.
Florida ran out to a 9-
0 lead as the Gamecocks
missed their first eight
shots.
Each time South Carolina
cut into the margin, the
Gators had an answer.
When Sam Muldrow's bas-
ket brought the Gamecocks


to 13-11, Florida followed
with seven consecutive
points capped by Boynton's
long 3-pointer.
South Carolina rallied
to 30-24 on a 3-pointer by
reserve RJ Slawson with
3:25 left in the half. But
the Gators put together a
dominant closing run to
take a 38-27 lead at the
break.
The Gators did just about
anything they wanted in
the opening half, shoot-
ing better than 60 percent
(17 of 28).
Macklin was unstoppa-
ble inside as he hit all of
his shots for 14 first-half
points.
Florida's touch contin-

ued after the break as they
made six straight shots dur-
ing one point to lead 53-35
with 14:03 left.
While the Gators thrived,
South Carolina struggled.
Take away Ellington's 5-of-
10 performance from the
field and the rest of the
Gamecocks finished 6 of
18.
Maybe South Carolina
coach Darrin Horn could've
called on star running back
Marcus Lattimore, who
attended the game and
knows about scoring on the
Gators. Lattimore ran for
212 yards and three touch-
downs in the Gamecocks'
36-14 win at Florida last
November.

Forcier transfers to Miami


Associated Press

CORAL GABLES -
Former Michigan quar-
terback Tate Forcier has
transferred to Miami.
Forcier signed an aid
agreement on Wednesday,
making the transfer official.
Under NCAA rules, he will
not be eligible to play for
the Hurricanes until 2012.
Forcier completed 219
of 365 passes for 2,647
yards, with 17 touchdowns
and 14 interceptions in 20


games for the Wolverines.
He announced his inten-
tions to transfer last month
on Twitter, and was aca-
demically ineligible for
Michigan's trip to the Gator
Bowl.
Michigan went 9-11 in
games in which Forcier
played. He appeared in
eight games this past sea-
son as Denard Robinson's
backup.
Still, it's a significant
pickup for first-year coach
Al Golden, who wanted to


add two quarterbacks in
this year's recruiting class.
Miami figures to have
senior Jacory Harris and
sophomore Stephen Morris
vying for the starting job in
2011, with little depth after
that.
Miami was 7-6 last sea-
son.
The 6-foot-1, 194-pound
Forcier also was believed
to be considering transfer
opportunities at Kansas
State, Washington, Arizona
and Montana.

the best doubles player we
have. He knows position-

Waters said that serving

teams' weakest link, .but
he intends for the game to

NASCAR has few answers




for issues as season looms


By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -
NASCAR entered its brief
offseason with several nag-
ging problems, intending
to fix as many as possible.
What top series offi-
cials emerged with is a
new scoring format that
simplifies the convoluted
points system used since
1975. Left unchanged are
sagging television ratings,
alarming attendance drops
and apathy from new and
old fans alike.
After 2010 produced
one of the most competi-
tive and dramatic seasons
in memory, it was compe-
tition issues the new
points system, a tweak to
the Chase for the Sprint
Cup championship and
not the overarching threats
to the sport's success that
NASCAR chairman Brian
France addressed last
month in his 2011 preview.
"Look, we're very satis-
fied with the most impor-
tant thing: the level of com-
petition," France said. "It's
easy to pull out one thing
or another. We're 63 years
old; every sport is going
to have periods where, for
lots of reasons, you're in a
peak or a valley.
"But over the long-term,
we're very confident that
... we're setting ourselves
up to work through any
issues that we have, take
the sport in a smart direc-
tion over many, many years
and make sure the busi-
ness models for all of the
NASCAR community work
properly."
Five-time defending
series champion Jimmie
Johnson said simply chang-
ing the points system wasn't

enough to fix NASCAR's
larger issues.
"I don't believe (the
points change is) a huge
strategy to engage the fans
more from an attendance
standpoint or a viewership
standpoint," Johnson said
when asked what effect
the new points system will
have. "I think, in my opin-
ion, there are other areas
to focus on for that."
. Those other areas ris-


ing costs, a difficult spon-
sorship market, fading
stars, failure to entice the
coveted 18-to-34 demo-
graphic and overall fan mal-
aise remain status quo
as NASCAR heads into a
new season. The unofficial
kickoff is this week when

some believed set the
tone for another year of
decline in NASCAR
interest.

NOTES



Changes


coming


after


first race
Associated Press


AVONDALE, Ariz.
- Phoenix International
Raceway will undergo its
first major track paving
project in 20 years after
hosting the first of its two
NASCAR races later this
month.
The 1-mile oval also will
undergo slight configu-
ration changes officials
hope will increase speeds
at the track 2 mph to 3
mph and promote more
side-by-side racing.
The changes will
include a widening of the
front stretch, installation
of concrete pit stalls and
implementation of vari-
able banking so there'll
be immediate use of two
racing grooves.
Construction will begin
after the Feb. 27 NASCAR
race and is expected to
conclude in September.
PIR's second NASCAR
race is Nov. 13.


Dover shifts qualifying

DOVER, Del. Dover
International Speedway
has moved qualifying
for both of its Sprint
Cup dates this season to
Saturday.
The NASCAR track
became the latest to shift

Friday date.
The track holds races
this season on May 15
and Oct 2. The track will
run regular practice ses-
sions on Fridays.

HOMETOWN: Eau Claire,Wis.
CREW CHIEF: Richard "Slugger" Labbe

BORN: March I, 1976
HOMETOWN: Janesville,Wis.
CREW CHIEF: Bill Henderson
SPONSOR: Long John Silver

He made it, at 33rd, and it guarantees
Kvapil a spot in the Daytona 500 through
the first five races of the season.
No. 38 Ford, Front Row Motorsports
DRIVER: David Gilliland
BORN:April I, 1976
HOMETOWN: Riverside, Calif.

DRIVER: Ryan Newman
BORN: Dec. 8, 1977
HOMETOWN: South Bend, Ind.
CREW CHIEF:Tony Gibson
SPONSOR: U.S.Army
NOTES: Newman won once, at
Phoenix, and finished 15th in the standings
in a letdown from 2009, when he made
the Chase.
No. 42 Chevrolet, Earnhardt Ganassi
Racing
DRIVER:Juan Pablo Montoya
BORN: Sept. 20, 1975
HOMETOWN: Bogota, Colombia


CREW CHIEF: Brian Pattie
SPONSOR:Target
NOTES: Following a breakthrough sea-
son in 2009, Montoya missed the Chase
in 2010 and finished a disappointing 17th.
He enjoyed 14 top-10 finishes, but those
were offset by eight DNFs. He has wins at
NASCAR's two road courses, Sonoma and
Watkins Glen, but still is looking for his
first victory at an oval track.
No. 43 Ford, Richard Petty
Motorsports
DRIVER:AJ Allmendinger
BORN: Dec. 16, 1981
HOMETOWN: Los Gatos, Calif.
CREW CHIEF: Mike Shiplett
SPONSOR: Best Buy
NOTES: Amid financial concerns at
Petty, Allmendinger posted three top-I15
finishes in the final five races, including a
fifth-place showing in the season finale.
RPM got its finances straight with help
from investor Andrew Murstein, dropped
from four cars to two cars and has high
hopes for 2011.
No. 46 Chevrolet, Whitney

go late last season, but they have reunited
in hopes of being more competitive.
No. 47 Toyota, JTG-Daugherty
Racing
DRIVER: Bobby Labonte
BORN: May 8, 1964
HOMETOWN: Corpus Christi,Texas
CREW CHIEF: Frank Kerr
SPONSOR: Little Debbie/Clorox/
Kingsford
NOTES: Labonte, the 2000 Cup cham-
pion, hasn't won a race since 2003. But he
expects to be more competitive with the
team that finished 26th last season with
Marcos Ambrose behind the wheel.
No. 48 Chevrolet, Hendrick
Motorsports
DRIVER:Jimmie Johnson
BORN: Sept. 17, 1975
HOMETOWN: El Cajon, Calif.
CREW CHIEF: Chad Knaus
SPONSOR: Lowe's
NOTES: The five-time defending Cup
champion returns again with every-
one trying to knock him off. Fatherhood,
car changes and a May slump had little
effect on his series domination in 2010.
Will changes to the points system alter
anything? Will someone do more than
merely challenge him in the Chase?
No. 56 Toyota, Michael Waltrip
Racing
DRIVER: Martin Truex Jr.
BORN:June 29, 1980
HOMETOWN: Mayetta, N.J.
CREW CHIEF: Pat Tryson
SPONSOR: NAPA Auto Parts
NOTES: Truex enters his second sea-
son at MWR looking to make a big jump.
Truex had seven top-10 Os in 2010 and fin-
ished 22nd in points. He showed promise
late, posting four top-15 finishes in the
final six races.
No. 78 Chevrolet, Furniture Row
Motorsports


DRIVER: Regan Smith
BORN: Sept. 23, 1983
HOMETOWN: Cato, N.Y.
CREW CHIEF: Pete Rondeau
SPONSOR: Furniture Row
NOTES: The Denver-based team is
coming off its best season since entering
NASCAR's top series in 2005. Smith quali-
fied for all 36 races in 2010 and came on
strong late, with six top-20 finishes in the
final 12 races.
# No. 83 Toyota, Red Bull Racing
DRIVER: Brian Vickers
BORN: Oct. 24, 1983
HOMETOWN:Thomasviile, N.C.
CREW CHIEF: Ryan Pemberton
SPONSOR: Red Bull
NOTES:Vickers is back, healthy again
and looking to return to his 2009 form.
Vickers finished 12th that season. He
stepped away from NASCAR last season
after doctors found blood clots in his leg
and lungs. Treatment included blood thin-
ners, two procedures to close a hole in
his heart and the insertion of a stent into
his left leg.
No. 87 Toyota, NEMCO Motorsports
DRIVER:Joe Nemechek
BORN: Sept. 26, 1963
HOMETOWN: Lakeland
CREW CHIEF: Philippe Lopez
SPONSOR:TBA
NOTES: Nemechek started 31
races last season but finished just one.
Predominantly a start-and-park entry
because of financial concerns in 2010,
Nemechek finished dead last seven times.
No. 88 Chevrolet, Hendrick
Motorsports
DRIVER: Dale Earnhardt Jr.
BORN: Oct. 10, 1974
HOMETOWN: Kannapolis, N.C.
CREW CHIEF: Steve Letarte
SPONSOR: Mountain Dew/AMP
Energy/National Guard
NOTES: NASCAR's most popular driv-
er was a non-factor on the track for the
fourth consecutive year in 2010. Earnhardt
finished 21st in points, and with team-
mates Mark Martin and Jeff Gordon also
struggling, owner Rick Hendrick shook
up most of the four-car team. But will
another new crew chief and a shop change
be enough to overhaul Junior's fortunes?
No. 90 Chevrolet, Keyed-Up
Motorsports
DRIVER: Scott Riggs
BORN:Jan. I, 1971
HOMETOWN: Bahama, N.C.
CREW CHIEF: Doug Richert
SPONSOR:TBA
NOTES: Riggs will be in the car for the
first five races in hopes of making the top
35 in owner's points and securing an auto-
mrtic qualifying spot. Richert, who teamed
with Dale Earnhardt to win the 1980 Cup
championship, will serve as crew chief.
No. 99 Ford, Roush Fenway Racing
DRIVER: Carl Edwards
BORN:Aug. 15, 1979
HOMETOWN: Columbia, Mo.
CREW CHIEF: Bob Osborne
SPONSOR: Aflac
NOTES: Consecutive victories to end
last season have Edwards being mentioned
as one of the favorites to push Jimmie
Johnson for the championship in 2011.
Edwards enjoyed 19 top-10s in 2010,
including 13 in the final 19 races, and
finished fourth in points.

DEAR ABBY: I'm 13,
and one of my best friends
attempted suicide. "Greg"
always seemed so happy that
this has come as a shock to
all of us. We're thankful he is
alive, but we don't know how
to behave around him.
When Greg returns to
school, what should we
talk about and how can we
(his friends) support him?
- GIVEN A SECOND
CHANCE
DEAR GIVEN: Greg is
lucky to have such caring
friends as you. When you see
him, tell him you're glad to
see him and were concerned
about him. Do NOT pump
him for details. If he wants to
talk about what happened, let
him do it in his own time.
As to what to talk about
with him, talk about the
things you always have and
include him in all the ac-
tivities you have in the past.
Knowing his friends care
about him is very important.
If you have further con-
cerns, discuss them with a
guidance counselor at school
or contact the National Sui-
cide Prevention Lifeline. Its
phone number is (800) 273-
8255 and its website is www.
suicidepreventionlifeline.org.
DEAR ABBY: Before I
married my wife, I told her' I
didn't want a housewife and
she agreed she would never
be out of work. Two months


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearobby.com
after tying the knot, she said
she got fired from her job,
but I think she quit.
She's asking me for money
to do things I thought were
dumb when we were dating.
We dated for three years be-
fore getting married and she
had the same job the whole
time. She has now been out
of work for a year.
I feel like I have been
tricked. I have never seen
her look in the newspaper
or search online for work. I
think she was a better girl-
friend than she is a wife. How
do I fix this situation? UN-
HAPPILY MARRIED
DEAR UNHAPPILY
MARRIED: Remind your
wife of the agreement you
had before you were married
- that you would be a work-
ing couple. Because you feel
you are being taken advan-
tage of, offer your wife the
option of marriage counsel-
ing. However, if that doesn't
heal-the breach in your rela-
tionship, talk to a lawyer.
DEAR ABBY: I have a
question regarding grocery
store self-scan checkouts.


Many grocery stores and su-
permarkets usually have four
machines in one lane, two on
each side. If they are all be-
ing used, are customers sup-
posed to form one line and
the customer in front goes
whenever a machine opens
up? Or does each machine
have its own individual line?
I, along with most other
people, wait in the middle
in one lane. But many times
someone will walk right past
and stand behind someone
checking out!
I never see signs posted
and no employees ever say
anything. Hopefully, you
could clear this up for us. -.
FRUSTRATED SHOPPER
IN TENNESSEE
DEAR FRUSTRATED:
This is a question that should
be addressed to the manager
of the grocery store where
you are shopping. If most of
the customers are forming
a single line and someone
cuts in, the folks in line usu-
ally have no hesitation telling
the offender, '"The line starts
here!" But because there
is some confusion, and the
self-checkout technology is
still new, it makes sense that
the management of the store
would post a sign telling cus-
tomers what is preferred.

FRANK & ERNEST


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Be careful that
you don't overdo it. Focus
more on behind the scenes
projects, where you can do
a really good job and pres-
ent with confidence. Now is
not the time to put quantity
over quality, if you want to
advance. ***
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): You need to rest,
relax and enjoy. Update
your look or style to better
suit the things you want to
pursue. Travel will turn out
well as long as you don't
overspend or overindulge.

GEMINI (May 21-June
20): You have everything
going for you, so don't let
laziness cause you to miss
out on an opportunity that
can change your life. You
have to take advantage of
the moment and engage in
every, opportunity you get
to mix and mingle with en-
lightened people. ***
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Broaden your
horizons and you will have
a better chance to stay cur-
rent and on top of what's
necessary to keep up with
the times and utilize what's
available to get ahead. The
choice to keep up or fall be-
hind is yours. ****
LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): Fast-paced and moving
upward should be where


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

you put your energy. Show
what you have to offer and
you will. make a. connec-.
tion that allows you to fully
use your talents. Don't stop
when there is so much you
can do with the right combi-
nation of people. **
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Your practical, insight-
ful and patient way of do-
ing things will attract some
heavy-duty people. What
you take on now will influ-
ence your life both person-
ally and professionally for
years to come. It's about
versatility and relying on
your intuition. **
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Don't let someone
negative about life hold you
back. Talk with people who
have vision, creative input
and can stimulate you to get
things done. A conversa-
tion you have with someone
from your past will help you
find an answer you've been
looking for. *****
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Don't give in to
anyone trying to manipu-
late your life or your future.
Make decisions that will
lead you in the most profit-
able direction emotionally,
personally and financially.
Don't put your assets on the
line. ***


SAGFITARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Popular-
ity will help you reach your
goal, so diplomacy and
showing interest in what
others are doing will play
a role in giving you the ul-
timate decision in the end.
Change is upon you and
how you handle it will deter-
mine the outcome. ***
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Put more ef-
fort into home and family.
Buying love is not an option;
it's your attention that's
required. Learn your les-
son from your past losses
or from watching someone
who ended up alone be-
cause they ignored what's
important. *****
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): You'll face op-
position if you bring up
emotional matters with
friends, neighbors, relatives
or your lover. Listen to the
other side of the story. Us-
ing emotional blackmail will
backfire, leaving you in a
no-win situation. **
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Don't get too
hung up on trivial matters.
Discuss plans, but only with
your inner circle of friends
or partners or someone
may steal or give away your
ideas. Protect your assets
and secure your position.
