little early for the Aug.

Early voting offi-

About 125 people
showed up to vote early
at the main office and 27
at Fort White on Monday,
said Elizabeth Horne,
supervisor of elections.
All ages came out on

"The more people that

the government will be,"
he said. "I don't care who
you vote for."
Early voting in Florida

Poll deputy Lawton L. Skipper waits outside of the polling
office to greet voters. 'We need people to come out and
vote, it doesn't matter who they are voting for,' Skipper
said. 'If you come out and vote you will have a better
government.'


Early voting provides a
convenient opportunity for
people to get out and vote
other than on election day.
"People are sobusy
nowadays and can't get
away on that one day
to vote," Horne said. "It
gives people more time to
get out and vote."
Early voting is open to
any registered voter in the


county. Voters can come
to either office and only
need to provide photo
identification with signa-
ture.
There are 39,723 regis-

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS



Advertisers asked to flee from (bleep)


NEW YORK
illiam Shatner, of all
people, stands at the
center of television's
latest moral battle-
ground.
He's the cantankerous lead char-
acter in a new CBS sitcom, "(Bleep)
My Dad Says," that is scheduled to
air on Thursday nights. Rather than
"bleep," the title uses a series of
symbols that suggest the expletive
included in the book title on which
the series is based.
The Parents Television Council
last week sent letters to 340 compa-
nies that advertise frequently on TV
urging them to stay away from the
show unless the name is changed.
The group argues that the title is
indecent.
"Parents really do care about pro-
fanity when their kids are watching
TV," said PTC President Tim Winter.'
"All parents? No, but something like
80 or 90 percent of parents. Putting
an expletive in the title of a show is
crossing new territory, and we can't
allow that to happen on our watch."
Winter's letter to companies asks
bluntly: "When you advertise on
television, do you want your custom-
ers to associate your product with.
(bleep)?"
His letter uses the expletive, not
the word "bleep." Winter uses the
real word 10 times in two pages.

almost 10
percent of the individual
contributors to Crist's cam-
paign in the second quar-
ter of this year. The second
quarter covers fundraising
in April, May and June.
SBy comparison, Obama
donors made up only about
2.5 percent of individual
contributors to Crisfs cam-
paign in the year in which
Crist was running as a
Republican.
Crist dropped out of the
GOP primary last April to
run as an independent.

Elections office has tried
advertising, voting drives
and speaking at events
about early voting to
encourage more people
to come out.
"A lot of people are set
in their ways like to go to
their precincts," she said.
Going on election
day to vote provides an
opportunity to socialize
for some people, Horne
said.
About 35 percent of
voters come out to vote


in a primary, and more
people usually vote in the
general election, officials
said.
The office would love
to see more people come
out and vote, Lear said.
Other than early or
primary voting, citizens
can also vote absentee.
Absentee ballots are avail-
able by calling (386) 755-
1026 ext. 105 or going to
any of the Supervisor of
Elections office.
Polling sites are


opened from 8:30 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. Monday to
Saturday until Aug. 21 at

at 971 W. Duval St. and
in Fort White at the

anced floor budget.
Postponing the fire/EMS
merger would save the
county $200,000, a price
Ron Williams said he was
willing to pay in order to
keep jobs.
Ron Williams was also
concerned that by postpon-
ing the merger, the county
would spend more than
what it would save.
Commissioners Stephen
Bailey and Jody DuPree
were in favor of moving for-
ward with the merger and
making cuts elsewhere.
"I think we started it for
the right reason and we've
got to complete it," DuPree
said.
The board also discussed
using reserve money ear-
marked for libraries for
.library operating expenses,
a move that would save
$300,000 annually, but would
exhaust the reserve in three
years.
The reserve is state
money that the state could
reclaim, Dale Williams said.
It funds the West Branch,
which could close if the


state takes the money back
because of its own budget
issues, he said.
The state has cut the
library funding the past two
years.
Commissioner Dewey
Weaver said by using the
reserve furids, the county
can "delay" the West Branch
closing for three years.
Ron Williams expressed
his concern about using
nonrecurring money on
recurring expenses. Dale
Williams said it is a "huge
mistake" other governments
make and that he would
not have recommended it
if he did not fear the state
reclaiming it.
The board also discussed
imposing a gas tax to gener-
ate revenue for county road
improvement.
Other reduction recom-
mefidations discussed
included cutting back on
constitutional officers'
budgets, implementing
furlough days on paid holi-
days and closing the coun-
ty Veterans Service office.
Dale Williams said all


of the recommendations
made at the meeting are
"liable to be removed" from
the budget, but before the
decisions are made, com-
missiogers will get "anoth-
er bite at the apple" to
choose what to keep and
what to cut.
He will prepare a bal-
anced floor budget to
present to the board at
the next budget meeting
and the board will review
all budget documents.
The commissioners will
meet for the next liud-
get workshop at 9 a.m.
Tuesday, Aug. 17 at the
Columbia County School
Board Administrative
Complex auditorium, 372
W Duval Street.
Dale Williams said next
year's budget does not

CLINIC: Board OKs contract with Family Health Center in Five Points area
Continued From Page 1A


During the Hospital
Authority's board meeting
Monday evening, at least
two board members spoke
in favor of allowing Lake
City Medical Center to par-
ticipate in the program if
there were- enough local
indigent care funds avail-
able.
However, funding and the
amount of money available
for the Medical Center to
participate in the program
remains a key component
of the proposal.
The Lake Shore Hospital
Authority Board uses funds
generated by its 1.5 mill
tax levy to fund the coun-
ty's indigent care. Officials
questioned whether that
tax levy would need to be
increased to allow Lake


City Medical Center's par-
ticipation in the program.
The board plans to make
its final decision by its next
budget workshop at 5:30
p.m. on Sept. 13.
"We're excited to have
an. opportunity to present
our case and excited there
seems to be some inter-
est in funding Lake City
Medical Center's indi-
gent care," said Charles
Briscoe, Lake City Medical
Center chief executive
officer, who addressed
the board.
"It's a controversial
issue, but I think the
board is well educated
on what both facilities do,

in the budget and hope-
fully they'll make a wise


HOSPITAL: Reduced tax
Continued From Page 1A


Indigent health care for
county residents is fund-
ed through the Hospital
Authority Board's operat-
ing budget.
The tax levy for last
year's budget generated $5
million and the millage rate
from this year's proposed
budget is expected to gen-
erate $3.5 million.
Jack Berry, Lake Shore
Hospital Authority man-
ager, recommended that
the Authority Board only
levy 1.5 mills in ad valorem
taxes as part of the upcom-
ing year's fiscal budget.
"That will give the taxpay-
ers a 29.3 percent reduction
in our spending," he said.
Berry said the board was
able to offer the reduced tax
levy because the .5468 mills
the board previously levied
for capital improvements
was no longer needed.
"We have sufficient funds
in reserves that we won't
need to levy that to the
taxpayers this year," Berry
said. '"With the economy
the way it is, people need
a break."
Marc Vann, Lake Shore
Hospital Authority Board
chairman, said he was
pleased the board is able to
offer a reduction in taxes.
"I think that the reduc-
tion in taxes, this year
alone, validates everything
that the Hospital Board
worked so hard to do to
cooperate with the merger
between HMA and Shands
at Lake Shore," he said.
"The fact that HMA has
accepted full responsibility


for all maintenance at the
hospital and replacement of
infrastructure, has freed up
millions of dollars over the
next several years that the
Hospital Board would have
had to tax the residents of
Columbia County."
Vann said the agreement
also allowed the Hospital
Authority Board to have
solid fund reserves.
"In addition to that we
feel like. we have enough
money in reserves to han-
die any capital projects that
we would want to do," he
said. 'We are thrilled with
the idea that we can reduce
our request for taxpayers'
money by almost $1.5 mil-
lion."


decision," he said.
Jack Berry, Lake Shore
Hospital Authority man-
ager, does not support
the proposal and recom-
mended the board deny
the request.
"I think we need to get
through this first year with
this lease and let's see
what the savings are in
this new program before
we commit this board to
additional funding," he
said.
Officials plan to have the
Authority's Board accoun-
tant Richard Powell review
the proposed budget to
determine whether there
is enough funding to con-
sider the proposal.
The Authority Board also
agreed to a contract, which


will add a new indigent care
clinic in the county.
Board members unani-
mously adopted a contract
with Family Health Center,
located in the Five Points
area. %
The facility, which
has been in the county
for years, provides ser-
vices for Medicaid and
Medicare patients and is

The contract is nearly
identical to the contract
with the University of

Obama insensitive to Hiroshima


ASHINGTON-
Some 25 years
ago I was asked
to speak at a
ceremony mark-
ing the 40th anniversary of the
death of the famous war corre-
spondent, Ernie Pyle, who had
been killed by a Japanese sniper
on a small island off Okinawa
in the last days of World War
II. The memorial was held in
the Punch Bowl, the national
military cemetery overlooking
Honolulu.
It was a mid-morning affair
that attracted more than a
thousand spectators, most of
them veterans of the bloody
campaigns in the Pacific from
Guadalcanal to Iwo Jima and
Okinawa all of them "Ernie's
boys."
In the mist and sunshine
of a glorious Hawaii morning
with the weathered faces of
America's best generation sur-
rounding me in campaign hats
and medals, it was one" of the
most humbling experiences I
have ever had.
I recalled that day and the
memories of loved ones lost
during that bleak time of
my boyhood as I read that
Barack Obama had deployed
the American ambassador to
Japan as an official delegate
to the 65th anniversary of the
nuclear bombing of Hiroshima,
a decision that at best can only
be described as insensitive
to the feelings of millions of
Americans who still remember
vividly the pain and anguish
caused by the Japanese Empire
in World War II.
How surprising that Obama,
who grew up not far from the
sacred ground of Pearl Harbor
and the cemetery where the
victims of Japanese treachery
lie, would become the first


Dan K.Thomasson
American chief executive to
do so since the conflict in the
Pacific ended in August of 1945
with the only two atomic detona-
tions in anger in history.
One might blame the presi-
dent's lack of perception or his
youthful ignorance of the death
and destruction caused by one
of the world's most ruthless
regimes if it weren't for the
place of his birth and that he is
too bright not to understand.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki,
which came a few days later
when the Japanese warlords
failed to get the message of
the first bomb, were the direct
result of the Empire's per-
fidiousness and the xenophobic
culture of its citizens.
The military industrial com-
plex that brutalized much of
Asia for more than a decade,
killing millions, had loosed the
furies that in the end brought
about the horror that was visit-
ed on these two cities and their
residents. The dead and dying
there were victims of their own
government, not the United
States.
No matter what revisionists
would have us believe, with-
out that ultimate retribution,
America and its allies faced the
loss of up to a million men and
women in the invasion of the
Japanese home islands where
the fanatical leaders were pre-
pared for whatever it took to
resist, including the immediate
murder of prisoners of war.


President Harry Truman had
little choice other than to give
the order that ultimately would
change the world and its bal-
ance of power.
There might have been some
justification for the appearance
of an American official at these
ceremonies had there ever
been such an official presence
from the Japanese at any Pearl
Harbor memorial or any admis-
sion of guilt in the horrendous
atrocities committed on the
Chinese, Koreans, Filipinos and
Burmese. The mass behead-
ings and rapes at Nanking are
only one small example. As far
as I know, no official Japanese
wreath has been laid at the
tomb of the U.S.S. Arizona
where American sailors rest,
true victims one and all.
That April morning in 1985
with the bands from Pearl and
Schofield Barracks playing sol-
emnly and the shafts of morn-
ing lights filtering through the
trees I confess I couldn't hide
my emotions.
In making that short speech
as the.representative of a com-
pany for which Pyle had worked
nearly all his professional career
and which had lost eight other
correspondents covering this
awful conflict, I cried. Those
brave veterans quite clearly for-
gave me.
Whether or not the few
remaining now will forgive
Obama for his failure to demand
the same respect for his nation's
victims is anyone's guess.
The U.S. and Japan are allies
now and have settled most of
their differences, as they should
have. But some injuries take
longer to heal and should.

editor of Scripps Howard News
Service.


these efforts and whether some
of them such as education aid,
child nutrition and preventive
health care services may actu-
ally prevent future public and
private costs.
The United States, with
record debt, is taking on unsus-
tainable obligations.
At the same time the nation is
increasing its commitment to so
many services, there are fewer
taxpayers to foot the bill.
Consider: More than 35 per-
cent of Americans pay no taxes.
The recession, no doubt,
has played a major role in that
increase. But the overall trend
is alarming.
As analysts William W. Beach
and Patrick Tyrrell write, in
the last year, "Not only did the
federal government effectively
take over half the U.S. economy
and expand public-sector debt
by more than all previous gov-


ernments combined, but it also
oversaw the largest single-year
expansion in total government
debt in U.S. history.
Much of that debt can be
traced to dependence-creating
programs."
Social Security, which helps
people retire with dignity,
remains popular. And in the
last few years many suddenly
jobless citizens have come to
appreciate the value of unem-
-ployment checks, which allow
them to continue to meet their
basic expenses while searching
for work.
Providing a "safety net," as
President Ronald Reagan put it,
for troubled Americans is one
thing; seeking to offer costly
benefits to virtually every inter-
est group wanting assistance is
another.

'Bandit'

becomes

everybody's

buddy

Charles Ivey was on
his way back from
Arkansas when
he called Peggy in
Gainesville, Ga.,
to check in. He'd been trout
fishing on White River with a
bunch of other guys, and his
wife would be interested in
what he was bringing home.
Usually it was a T-shirt,
but this year he was bringing
home a dog.
He really didn't want him
because that was the ugliest .
dog you've ever seen. He was
dirty, and his ribs were practi-
cally touching in the middle,
he was so malnourished.
He's white with a brown ring
around his left eye. He looks
like Petey, the mutt in the
Little Rascals movies.
"I would've named him
Petey," Charles said, "but that
sounded too sissy, so I named
him Bandit because of that
brown ring."
Bandit, obviously 'aban-
doned or lost and with no ID,
had been hanging around the
boat dock on White River for
about two weeks. The dock
owner didn't feed him, because
he didn't want him either.
But that dog was deter-
mined to go home with some-
body. Charles was the victim.
"But I told him on the way
home, I said, 'Now if you don't
work out, you could end up at
the pound. You're kind of on
probation."'
A few days later, Bandit
was at the veterinarian's office
being checked out when
Charles asked what kind of
dog he was. "He ain't no kind
of dog," the vet said. "He's just
a dog."
But that was three years
ago. Bandit is not just a dog
any longer. In fact, Charles has
slipped one notch on his wife's
priority list. He now comes after
son Tim, four cats and one ugly
dog. Bandit has his very own
bed, and his bedfellow is one
of the cats, a long-haired white
feline named Beetle because he
was born in a Volkswagen.
Wherever the master goes,
Bandit goes. About a year ago,
he was waiting in Charles' truck
while Peggy was in the hospital
with dangerously high blood
pressure, and the nurse told
Charles, "Bring him in." Bandit
rode up the elevator, strolled
into Peggy's room, hopped
up on the foot of her bed and
stayed there all day. Peggy's
blood pressure eventually went
down.
Bandit goes to church every
Sunday, but he waits in the
truck. He likes the singing, but
not the preaching. He attends
car shows with Charles and is
mascot for the Old Friends Car
Club.
Twice, Bandit has blown the
truck's horn repeatedly, surpris-
ing a few fellows hanging out.
Once, while Charles was pump-
ing gas at Freddie Harkins'
store, Bandit locked the doors.
"That could've happened to any-
body," Charles said. The store
owner drove Charles home to
get his spare key.
"But everybody just loves
Bandit," Charles said, excusing
his buddy.
Why, just last week, Charles
entered Bandit in a calendar
contest sponsored by the
humane society. That ugly dog
is almost pretty.
Who would have thought that
a dog nobody wanted would
become a dog everybody loves?

Honda recalling nearly 400,000 vehicles


ASSOCIATED PRESS
This file photo shows the Honda's new Element during the 2002 New York International Auto
Show in New York. Honda Motor Co. said on' Monday that it is recalling vehicles, including
2003 model year Accord and Civics and 2003-2004 versions of the Honda Element.


By KEN THOMAS
Associated Press

WASHINGTON -
Honda Motor Co. is recall-
ing the popular Accord
and Civic passenger cars
to address problems with
an ignition switch that
could allow the key to be
removed without the trans-
mission being shifted into
park, its third recall over
the problem since 2003.
Honda said the most
recent recall involved
384,220 vehicles and
includes 2003 model year
Accord and Civics and 2003-
2004 versions of the Honda
Element. Honda told the
National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration that
the defect with the auto-
matic transmissions could
lead to a vehicle rolling
away and increase the risk
of a crash.
The Japanese auto-
maker said in a statement
the recall would involve

about 197,000 Accords,
117,000 Civics and 69,000
Elements. The company
said it has received sev-
eral complaints about the
ignition interlock and "is
,aware of a small number of
related incidents, including
one that resulted in a minor
injury."
Honda said the ignition
interlock mechanism could
be damaged or worn dur-
ing use and "it may become
possible to remove the
ignition key when the shift
lever is not in park." Unless
the parking brake is set,
the vehicle could roll away
under those circumstances


and lead to a crash.
The three related recalls
have involved about 1.4 mil-
lion vehicles since 2003.
Honda recalled more
than 560,000 minivans
and sedans, including
the 1998-99 Accord,
to correct the ignition
park-shift interlock
defect in October 2003.
In January 2005, Honda
recalled nearly 490,000
passenger cars, includ-
ing certain 1999-2002
Accords, because of the
ignition switch prob-
lem. "
The latest recall fol-
lowed an investigation
opened by NHTSA in
January 2009 after the
government received
16 complaints about the
failure of the ignition
interlock, in 2002 and
2003 Accords.
Eleven, of the com-
plaints alleged that the
failure of the interlocks
led to rollaway crashes.

Rescued grandma: 10 years are a gift


By NICK SORTAL
South Florida Sun-Sentinel

PEMBROKE PINES
- Spirit.
That's how Tillie Tooter
maintained the will to live
while trapped in her car for
78 steamy August hours.
That's what people saw
after she was rescued from
the mangroves, speak-
ing from a hospital bed,
bruised and bitten, telling
of sucking on a button to
keep her mouth moist.
And that's why the 93-
year-old woman says the
past 10 years have been a
gift.
"I am grateful for every
breath," she says.
"A lot can happen in 10
years. A hero can end up in
jail. A villain can screw up
a second chance. A grand-
daughter can grow up,
marry and give birth to
twins.
But one thing hasn't
changed: The woman
whose story of survival
made her an instant South
Florida celebrity still has
the wits of people half her
age.
And she still gets behind
the wheel.
It was Saturday, Aug. 12,
2000, when Tillie Tooter
went missing. Her grand-
daughter, Lori Simms,


"I just had so
much time to
review my life.
SMy biggest
thought was I
hoped I hadn't
hurt anybody."

Tillie Tooter

and her boyfriend were to
arrive at 11 p.m. from New
Jersey. But the plane to
Fort Lauderdale was late.
Lori called at 2:30 a.m.
and offered to take a cab,
but Tooter said she didn't
mind driving from her
Century Village condo in
Pembroke Pines. She was
up anyway, and eager to
see her granddaughter.
But she never made it to
the airport. Police, investi-
gating Tooter's disappear-
ance, feared the 83-year-
old woman driving in the
middle of the night had
become disoriented.
"You don't know my
grandma," Lori told them.
Actually, Tooter had
become disoriented for
three terrifying seconds
as her car plunged from
Interstate 595 into a thicket
of mangroves. A driver had
bumped her from behind
and pushed her over a
guardrail. Now she was


screaming for help and
honking her horn, and
cursing-her luck. Her cell
phone had flown out the
window.
The car had nestled on its
side in the mangroves. She
unbuckled her seat belt but
realized trying to get out of
her Toyota Tercel would be
fruitless because she was
trapped in a thicket.
"All I could see was
trees," she says.
She honked and
screamed all through the
night, until first the horn
and then her voice gave
out. The sun rose and all
she could do was lie there,
and look at this big brown
fly on a nearby branch.
Again, she cursed her
luck. Just days before, doc-
tors told her she was diabet-
ic, so she had tossed every
snack from her purse. All
she had left was a stick of
gum, a peppermint and a
cough drop.
She and the big brown
fly barely moved all day
Saturday. Same thing
Sunday. Forty-eight hours
alone, surrounded by the
trees.
"I just had so much time
to review my life," she says.
"My biggest thought was
I hoped I hadn't hurt any-
body."
She decided she'd done


OK Her one daughter was
happily married, her two
grandchildren were thriving
and she'd experienced three
loves: two husbands died on
her, bookends to a marriage
in the middle she called "a
13-year mistake."
There are plenty of worst
parts to the story, she says.
The bugs that chewed her
up. The constant fear of
snakes. Especially, the dark-
ness.
By Monday, she was
parched. The peppermint,
cough drop and gum were
long gone.
"I prayed for rain," she
says. And the skies opened.
The National Weather
Service measured 0.57 inch-
es at the airport.
She used a wheel cover
to trap some water, and stuck
two old hospital booties out
her window. (She usually kept
them in her car over gear shift-
ers, so the knobs wouldn't be
too hot to handle.) She wrung
the water-soaked booties over
her open mouth.
But the thirst persisted.
Lying there, Tooter says
she remembered the 1949
movie "'The 3 Godfathers."
John Wayne survives the
desert by plucking a button
from his shirt and putting it
his mouth to create saliva. So
Tooter pulled a button from
her shirt to suck on.

Comcast, DirectTV, and Cox Increase Cable Rates Again!



Get HD Free For Life with New Cable Company


Huge cable bills and frequent rate increases seem to be the same
old problems facing Florida seniors and hardworking cable viewers.
How much is too much? How many channels of news, sports, and
re-run movies are viewers expected to pay for? Ironically, the major-
ity of programming watched by TV viewers are local channels (ABC,
NBC, CBS, FOX, PAX, PBS, WB, UPN). Many residents in the Cen-
tral Florida area are complaining about the cost, but still keep paying
outrageous cable bills. Digital broadcasting is here to stay. The ques-
tion is, how can consumers get cable tv channels at the lowest price?
Special The answer is quite simple The Eastern ARC. Why would any
Correspondent consumer want to receive channels from underground cables that need
upgrading every 5-10 years? Thanks to improved technology,
consumers have a choice other than local cable companies that use outdated technology.
Simply by changing to the Eastern Arc, consumers can access their favorite channels and save

in Austin, Texas on Monday.


Obama on the road to raise

money for fellow Democrats


By.BEN FELLER
Associated Press
AUSTIN, Texas With
the fall campaign season
fast approaching, President
Barack Obama flew to Texas
Monday to raise money for
fellow Democrats and give
a speech emphasizing his
commitment to higher edu-
cation.
From Washington to New
York City, and from Atlanta
to Chicago, the president
has -headlined event after
event and raised millions of
dollars in recent weeks for
his party. This push came
amid a sense of urgency as
Democrats fight to maintain
their grip on power in the
House and Senate.

from the trip was any appear-

gubernatorial hopeful, Bill
White. Some Democratic
candidates have been wary
of appearing with the presi-
dent given voters' concerns
about his stewardship of the
economy and other issues.
White House spokesman
Bill Burton told reporters
traveling with Obama on Air
Force One that the president
was not insulted by White's
absence.
"I don't think that it says


anything broadly about the duce an additional 8 million

WASHINGTON The
House ethics committee on
Monday announced three
counts of alleged ethics vio-
lations against California
Democrat Maxine Waters,
including a charge that she
requested federal help for
a bank where her husband
owned stock and had served
on its board.
Waters, a 10-term repre-
sentative from Los Angeles,
has denied any wrongdo-
ing and had urged the com-
'mittee to come forth with
details of the charges so
that she can defend herself
in a trial expected to take
place this fall.
That trial would be the
second handled by the
ethics committee this fall.
Another senior Democrat,
former Ways and Means
Committee Chairman
Charles Rangel, faces 13
counts, including failing to
disclose assets and income
and delayed payment of fed-
.eral taxes. With the elec-
tion just three months away,
Republicans have pounced
on the two cases as indica-
tions of Democrats failing
to live up to promises to end
,corruption in Washington.

WASHINGTON The
Defense Department plans
to shed one of its 10 major
military commands as
Defense Secretary Robert
Gates tries to pare billions
from the Pentagon budget,
officials briefed on the plan
said Monday.
Gates wants to eliminate
the Joint Forces Command,
long a presumed target for
belt-tightening, and will
also announce Monday
that he wants to cut the
Pentagon's use of outside
contractors by 10 percent
next year, The Associated
Press has learned. The
Virginia-based command
trains troops from different
services to fight together.
Military and other offi-
cials described the planned
cuts on, condition of ano-
nymity because they were
not authorized to discuss
Gates' plans ahead of a
Pentagon news conference
Monday.


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Letitia Long shakes hands
with Defense Secretary
Robert Gates after becoming
the Director of the National
Geospatial-Inteligence
Agency on Monday during a
change of director ceremony
in Springfield, Va.

Joint Forces Command,
with nearly 4,900 employ-
ees and annual salaries of
more than $200 million, is'


the largest single cut to
be announced. Gates is
not expected to say how
much money will be saved
by shutting down the com-
mand, which holds more
than 1 million square feet
of real estate in Suffolk, Va.,
and Norfolk, Va.
The Pentagon has already
announced a target of cut-
ting $100 .billion over five
years. And earlier this year
Gates ordered a top-to-bot-
tom paring of the military
bureaucracy in search of at
least $10 billion in annual
savings needed to prevent
an erosion, of U.S. combat
power.
Gates took aim at what
he called wasteful business
practices and too many gen-
erals and admirals, and noted
that "overhead" costs chew
up as much as 40 percent of
the Pentagon's budget
The current defense
budget, not counting the
cost of fighting in Iraq and
Afghanistan, is $535 billion;
the administration is asking
for $549 billion for 2011.

U GOV'T KICKS OFF BRAND NEW STATE QUARTER PROGRAM:

the old State Quarters that you get in your pocket change every day. These are all

Chest for just 9 getheir approval the entire first year of never-

By R. K. Berry
UNIVERSAL MEDIA SYNDICATE

(UMS) "They'll be practically clawing
each other's eyes out to get the new State
Quarters free."
So says Timothy Shisler, Chief of Coin
Operations at the private World Reserve
Monetary Exchange.
"Everyone who gets in on this will be
among the first to get the U.S. Govern-
ment's dazzling new coins," Shisler said.
The entire first year of these valuable
coins are being given away free to everyone
who beats the deadline to cover shipping
and the *9 claim for the new Collectors Coin
Chest.
So, what's the catch?
Just be absolutely sure to call the toll free
hotline before the 48-hour deadline ends if
you want to get the entire first year's coins
free.
This is all happening because the World
Reserve is issuing the new Collectors Coin
Chest to the general public to protect and
display the entire first year's set of the U.S.
Mint's first ever America the Beautiful
QuartersM.
"This new State Quarter Program could
end up being even more popular than the
original 50 State Quarters Program,"
Shisler said.
Coin values always fluctuate, but believe
it or not, the original State Quarters have
already increased up to an amazing 400%
in collector value just months after the pro-
gram ended. "So who knows what these
new coins could bring someday," Shisler
said:
Never-circulated coins like these are
among those most likely to increase in
value. That makes getting the Collectors
Coin Chest a real steal since everyone who
does is getting the entire first year of the
new U.S. Gov't issued coins free.
Rations of the new coins are uncertain
because each one is only minted for just 73

Voting begins in state


Senate, AG primaries


By BRENDAN FARRINGTON
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE-
Floridians are out at the
polls voting for Democratic
candidates for U.S. Senate,
Republican candidates for
governor and casting bal-
lots in the two primaries
for attorney general.
The primary isn't until


Aug. 24, but Florida vot-
ers can cast primary
votes beginning Monday.
Candidates and party offi-
cials were rallying sup-
porters to get out early
to ensure they'll have a
chance to vote.
In the governor's race,
Republican Attorney
General Bill McCollum
faces Rick Scott, the for-


mer Columbia/HCA CEO
who is spending tens of
millions of his own dol-
lars in the primary.
In the Senate race,
Democratic Rep.
Kendrick Meek is facing
a challenge from billion-
aire Jeff Greene, who
is spending millions
of his fortune on the
campaign.


Crabs provide evidence oil

spill tainting Gulf food web


By JOHN FLESHER
Associated Press
BARATARIA, La. To
assess how heavy a blow
the BP oil spill has dealt the
Gulf of Mexico, research-
ers are closely watching a
staple of the seafood indus-
try, and primary indicator
of the ecosystem's health:
the blue crab.
Weeks ago, before engi-
neers pumped in mud and
cement to plug the gusher,
scientists began finding
specks of oil in crab larvae
plucked from waters across
the Gulf coast
The government said
last week that three-quar-


ters of the spilled oil has
been removed or naturally
dissipated from the water.
But the crab larvae discov-
ery was an ominous sign
that crude had already infil-
trated the Gulf's vast food
web and could affect it
for years to come.
"It would suggest the
oil has reached a position
where it can start moving
up the food chain instead of
just hanging in the water,"
said Bob Thomas, a biolo-
gist at Loyola University in
New Orleans. "Something
likely will eat those oiled
larvae ... and then that ani-
mal will be eaten by some-
thing bigger and so on."


Tiny creatures might
take in such low amounts of
oil that they could survive,
Thomas said. But those at
the top of the chain, such
as dolphins and tuna, could
get fatal "megadoses."
Marine biologists rou-
tinely gather shellfish for
study. Since the spill began,
many of the crab larvae
collected have had the dis-
tinctive orange oil droplets,
said Harriet Perry, a biol-
ogist with the University
of Southern Mississippi's
Gulf Coast Research
Laboratory.
"In my 42 years of study-
ing crabs I've never seen
this," Perry said.

Obama welcomes


Saints to White House


'Who Dat" team
members march
on Washington.
By ILEANA MORALES
Associated Press
WASHINGTON It
took one shout of "Who
Dat!" to get the celebration
started in the White House
on' Monday as President
Barack Obama saluted the
Super Bowl champion New
Orleans Saints.
The band played "When
the Saints Go Marching
In," as team members
came in smiling to cheers
and shouts for quarterback
Drew Brees. Team owner
Tom Benson pumped his
fist in the air, flashing a
Super Bowl yellow-gold
diamond ring.
Obama congratulated the
team, owner and coaches in
an East Room ceremony. He
said the team lifted up "the
hopes and the dreams of a
shattered city" in the wake
of the ravages of Hurricane
Katrina.


ASSOCIATED PRESS
President Barack Obama shakes hands with New Orleans
Saints head football coach Sean Payton on Monday, as the
president honored the 2009 NFL Super Bowl champions.


The Saints beat the
Indianapolis Colts, 31-17, in
Super Bowl XLIV in Miami.
Obama said the Saints'
Super Bowl win was huge
for New Orleans and for the
country. He noted that after
Katrina, the Saints had to
play an entire season on the
road because their home
stadium, the Superdome,
was ruined in the storm.
"Back then people didn't
even know if the team was


coming back. People didn't
even know if the city was
coming back," Obama said.
Now, the president said,
the Saints proved their team
and city are here to stay.
Brees presented the 44th
president -with a No. 44
Saints jersey. The Chicago
Bears fan joked he couldn't
get away with wearing it in
Chicago.
Coach Sean Payton is
also from Chicago.


NASCAR

to change

' 1 Chase

opener

Chicagoland
Speedway gets
nod for final run.
By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C.
- NASCAR will open the
2011 Chase for the Sprint
Cup championship at
Chicagoland Speedway,
shifting the start of its
title-deciding 10-race for-
mat to the second largest
media market the series
serves.
"I can't think of a better
market than Chicago and
the Chicagoland area to
kick off NASCAR's ver-
sion of the playoffs," track
president Craig Rust said
in an announcement
made Monday in Chicago
with NASCAR officials,
current series points
leader Kevin Harvick and
defending race winner
David Reutimann.
It was the first major
change officially con-
firmed in what's expected
to be several significant
shifts to the 2011 Sprint
Cup schedule.
Kansas Speedway and
Kentucky Speedway have
both called Tuesday news
conferences to announce
their 2011 schedules.
Kansas is expected to
announce the addition of
a second race date, while
Kentucky will announce
its inaugural Cup date.
Based on the tentative
2011 schedule for the
second-tier Nationwide
Series, a copy of which
was obtained by The
Associated Press. Kansas'
added race date will likely
be June 5 and Kentucky's
debut Cup race will be
July 9.
Chicago. meanwhile,
trades its traditional July
night race for a prime
spot on the schedule.
Steve O'Donnell,
NASCAR's senior vice
president of racing opera-
tions, said Chicago will
be the only new market
added to. the 10-race
Chase. It will replace
Auto Club Speedway.


Cowboys win Hall

of Fame matchup


Smith, Rice on
hand for kickoff
to new season.
Associated Press

CANTON, Ohio With
Emmitt. Smith and Jerry
Rice in the house one night
after going into the hall, an
offensive show seemed in
order.
Neither the Dallas
Cowboys nor the Cincinnati
Bengals got the message
Sunday.
The NFL offensive
icons who entered the Pro
Football Hall of Fame on
Saturday couldn't have
been comfortable with the
action at Fawcett Stadium
on Sunday night, when
Dallas beat Cincinnati 16-7
to open the preseason.
But the Dallas defense
sure came through for the
team's former star running
back.
"Having Emmitt induct-
ed into the Hall of Fame is
special," All-Pro lineback-
er DeMarcus Ware said.
"For us now playing for


the Cowboys, it does make
it extra special."
The Cowboys hope this
is the opening step, small
as it was, toward becom-
ing the first team to play in
a Super Bowl in its home
stadium. That goal will
take months before it can
be achieved, of course,
and the most memorable
moment this weekend for
them will remain Smith's
entry into the Hall of
Fame.

Ratings high
NEW YORK-The Hall
of Fame game drew the
highest preliminary televi-
sion rating for a preseason
NFL game in six years.
The game on NBC on
Sunday night between
the Bengals and Cowboys
earned a 7.6 overnight rat-
ing and 13 share.
It was the best preseason
rating since an 8.2/13 for
a Titans-Cowboys game
in 2004 and up 31 per-
cent from a 5.8/10 for last
year's Buffalo-Tennessee
Hall of Fame game.

HIT THE "SKIDS"


'Uncertainty' at Florida


By MARK LONG
Associated Press *

GAINESVILLE The buzzwords sur-
rounding Florida last fall were "repeat,"
"perfection," and "legacy," remnants of
winning the 2008 national championship,
returning nearly every starter and being
the overwhelming favorite to do it again.
A year later, Gainesville is filled with
"uncertainty."
The Gators have a new quarterback,
four new assistant coaches, a revamped
defense and few proven playmakers. They
lost stars Tim Tebow, Brandon Spikes,
Aaron Hernandez and Joe Haden, nearly
lost coach Urban Meyer, and entered fall
practice.without a clear-cut identity for the
first time in years.
"It's a little different feeling," Meyer
said. "But it's still Florida. It's still a bunch
of good athletes. Not good, probably great
athletes running around that field. It's a
year of accountability and development.
And if that happens. we'll have a good
team. If it doesn't, we won't."
Meyer compared this season to 2007,
the year after Florida won its second
national title and the year Tebow took over
as the starting quarterback. Expectations
were high back then, but the Gators didn't
have enough talent or experience to avoid
four losses.
But Meyer and his players don't expect
another rebuilding year. Not even close,
really. Following several strong recruiting
classes, they believe this is a reloading
year that could include another trip to
Atlanta for the conference title game. The
Gators begin play Sept. 4 against Miami
(Ohio).
Florida has represented the Eastern
Division three times in the last four years,
with the lone loss coming last year against
Alabama. That 32-13 drubbing still reso-
nates with players and coaches.
"When you have a loss so devastating as
that one, you want to go into that next sea-
son hungry," quarterback John Brantley
said. "A lot of people really have been
doubting us. That's another big thing.
We like to be tested like that. That's what
gives us a chip on our shoulders."
Brantley has waited three years even
longer considering his background for
a chance to take over Florida's offense. He
grew up in nearby Ocala rooting for the
Gators. His father played quarterback at
Florida and his uncle was a standout line-
backer at Florida.
The youngest Brantley has even bigger
shoes to fill. He's stepping in after Tebow,
a three-time Heisman Trophy finalist who
helped the Gators win 26 of 28 games the
last two years. Tebow was Mr. Everything
at Florida, serving as the team's emotional
leader and the offense's go-to guy.
Brantley hopes to avoid any com-
parisons while trying to create his own
identity.

style. And you know what? All the guys
. respect that about me. That's why we've
got other guys, on the team like Mike
Pouncey and Ahmad Black, other people
that will do that stuff to get the team
going."
Maybe so, but the Gators are still trying
to figure out who will get the offense and
defense rolling.
Tebow, Spikes, Hernandez and Haden
were among the key playmakers the
last two years. Now, it's up to guys like
Brantley, running back Jeff Demps, line-
backer Jelani Jenkins and safety Will Hill
to get it done.
"Each year, somebody leaves, some-
body comes in and steps up big," line-
backer Brandon Hicks said. "Once you
have people that are willing to step up, it
doesn't matter who leaves."
Florida has four coaches leave, too.
Meyer replaced them with three coach-
es from his past Zach Azzanni, D.J.
Durkin and Stan Drayton and hired
longtime NFL assistant Teryl Austin to
tweak the defense.
All four signed on at Florida with-
out knowing how long Meyer would be
around.
Meyer briefly resigned in late December,
citing health concerns three weeks after
he was rushed to a hospital with chest
pain. He changed his mind the following
day and instead decided to take a leave of
absence following Florida's bowl game.
Meyer has since been diagnosed with
esophageal spasms and is taking medica-
tion to eliminated .the spasms that often
cause chest pain.
"I feel great, especially when I get to see
what kind of team we have," Meyer joked.
"It's a good-looking team."
Maybe so, but it's still filled with
uncertainty.

Associated Press


AKRON, Ohio -
Hunter Mahan took a big
step toward joining the
elite in golf on Sunday,
winning his first World
Golf Championship title
to lock up a spot on the
U.S. Ryder Cup team.
Four shots behind to
start the final round at
Firestone, Mahan ran off
five birdies on the front
nine to take the lead,
then had three clutch par
saves down the stretch to
finish off a 6-under 64 and
a two-shot victory over
Ryan Palmer.
It was the second vic-
tory this year for Mahan,
and moved him to
No. 2 in the Ryder Cup
standings.

The win is the first
for Lunde in his sec-
ond full season on the

will prove challenging


S spread along the Lake Michigan
shoreline, Whistling Straits
comes as close to a "links style"
course as there is around the
country. Closely resembling playing
conditions in the British Isles with
its geography, climate and soil
conditions the wind off the lake
often changes direction abruptly,
putting the best golfers to the test.
The Straits course, at 7,514 yards,
makes it the second longest course
ever to host a major.

The shortest par 4 on the course, some
might try to drive the green. The penalty is
a deep pot bunker that guards the front
and should be avoided. An iron off the tee
that strays too far right could lead to a
blind approach to a shallow, undulating
green. Any shot short, right or long will
make for a tough par.

This hole hugs the Lake Michigan
shoreline on the right. The green also is
protected by bunkers short and right, and
the left is framed by a large hill layered
with bunkers. The long green will make
club selection critical, because the putting
surface has subtle movements.

The ideal tee shot is close to the left edge
of the fairway. A deep bunker on the right
side of the landing area requires a 240-yard
carry to set up a wedge to the elevated
green. Some big hitters might risk trying to
drive the green, which has deep bunkers
short and left.

meaning players will have a blind shot to
the green. Anything short of this elevated,

Anything long will catch a bunker.


The shortest hole at Whistling Straits plays
downhill to a large, undulating green. Anything
short or right drops off some 40 feet into the
dunes and Lake Michigan. The green is one of
the most difficult to manage, so the fun only
starts when the ball gets there.

Tough times for Tiger


By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press

AKRON, Ohio Tiger
Woods has never looked
worse.
As he has done so often on
Sunday at the Bridgestone
Invitational, Woods doffed
his cap as he walked up
toward the 18th green to
warm applause from fans
who occupied every seat in
the grandstand.
Only there was no
trophy waiting for him.
This sounded more like a
sympathy cheer.
The world's No. 1 player
looked utterly beaten, and
he was.
"Shooting 18-over par
is not fun," Woods said. "I
don't see how it can be fun
shooting 18 over."
He missed one last birdie
putt to close with a 77. That
gave Woods the highest 72-
hole score 298 of any
PGA Tour event he ever
played, even as an ama-
teur. It was the first time
he shot over par in all four
rounds since the 2003 PGA
Championship at Oak Hill.
This from a guy who had
never finished worse than
fifth at Firestone in 11 pre-
vious events, who had not
shot over par on the South
Course since 2006, who
last year made PGA Tour
history by winning for the

Tiger Woods takes off his cap on the 18th green after the
fourth round of the Bridgestorfe Invitational golf tournament at
Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, on Sunday.


seventh time on the same
course.
The numbers associated
with Woods always have
been staggering, now more
than ever.
His 298 was 39 shots
higher than the record
score he shot 10 years ago
at Firestone. He tied for
78th, the highest finish of
his PGA Tour career. Only
Henrik Stenson (20-over
300) kept Woods from fin-
ishing dead last. He set


a career low by making
bogey or worse on 25 of the
72 holes.
No one expected him to
dominate as he did before
revelations of his sexual
escapades in November.
No one could have imag-
ined this.
"He's just not the regular
Tiger we're used to see-
ing," said Anthony Kim,
who played his first tour-
nament in three months
after thumb surgery and


beat Woods by two shots.
"He's obviously had a lot
of stuff going on, and he's
dealing with that, and that's
obviously more important
than golf. Because I think,
golf is an easy thing to do
once your personal life is
straightened out. And I'm
sure it's going to happen
soon for him."
How soon?
Not even Woods knows.
Perhaps more troubling for
him and the PGA Tour
- is he doesn't know how
much longer he can play
this year. With two tour-
naments remaining before
the FedEx Cup playoffs get
under way, Woods is not
guaranteed of being in the
top 125 to get into the open-
ing event at The Barclays.
CBS Sports, which tele-
vises the most weekends on
the tour, has not had Woods
live on Sunday since the
Memorial two months ago.
Woods will slip further
down the Ryder Cup stand-
ings, and the question is no
longer whether he would
play as a captain's pick. The
question is whether U.S.
captain Corey Pavin should
even pick him.
He looks like any other
player out there. Just
watching the shots he hits,
someone could question
what he's doing on the PGA
Tour.

50 SOM E OF YOU IDIOTS
ARE GETTING PLACEBO
QUESTIONS.
WELL
PLAYED.


DEAR ABBY: I have been
romantically involved with my
best friend, "Ray," for three
years. We dated for a couple
of years 14 years ago. He got
a girl pregnant right before
we started dating, and they
ended up getting married and
having four more children.
We remained friends and be-
gan seeing each other after
they divorced three years
ago.
Ray says he has always
been in love with me and
should have married me.
We're very close and spend
as much time together as we
can.
For the past year I have-
been asking when I'll meet
his children. He keeps saying
I need to be patient and when
the time is right I can. We live
in different cities.
Ray is a great dad very
involved in his children's
lives. He has them during
the week, and on weekends,
coaches basketball for 'his
son, and takes them to their.
different activities. etc. I un-
derstand they are his first pri-
ority. I just wish he'd include
me in that part of his life.
Ray says he wants to mar-
ry me. We discuss it often and
plan on living together in the
near future. I feel he doesn't
want me to be a part of his
life that involves the children.
They range in age from 13
to 3 1/2. They know I exist
because he has my picture
by his bed, but he says they

don't ask about me. Am I be-
ing "too" patient? REAL-
ITY CHECK IN KANSAS
DEAR REALITY: Are you
absolutely certain that Ray is
divorced? It seems strange to
me that after three years you
still haven't met his children.
Or does he plan to have you
move in and "surprise" them?
That would be a big mistake.
If my suspicions are wrong
and Ray is on the up and up,
tell him you need him to set
a definite timeline. You have
been patient long enough.
DEAR ABBY: My cousin
"Cassidy" met a man I'll call
"Lenny" online and they start-
ed dating. When I met him a
few months later, I recognized
him as the man who had sex-
ually assaulted two women I
, knew in college. He was con-
victed of these crimes, did
time in jail and is a registered
sex offender.
I was horrified and unsure
about how to tell Cassidy.
It turns out Lenny told her
before they started dating,
but" she chose to date him
anyway. They were married
at the courthouse two years
ago, a few weeks before my

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): There may be
things you are questioning
and people you aren't sure
of, but that is no reason to
sit idle while life passes
you by. The worst that can
happen is rejection and the
knowledge that it's time to
look and try to accomplish
elsewhere. ***
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): With less work
and more play you'll discov-
er new friends, closer con-
nections to the people you
already know and a strong
bond with the youngsters
and elders in your life.
It's time to focus on what
makes you happy. Live, love
and enjoy. *****
GEMINI (May 21-
June 20): Taking action
will bring you respect aqd
the help needed to com-
plete your goals. Love is in
the stars and, single or not,
you should be building a
better relationship with the
one you love or getting in-
volved in interests that can
lead you to a potential part-
ner. ****
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Don't be afraid to
do things differently but, at
the same time, be prepared
to deal with opposition. The
possibilities ahead of you
are endless but it will take
initiative to get things un-
derway. Don't take on re-


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

sponsibilities that interfere
with your plans. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): Deception or emo-
tional blackmail will lead to
financial and relationship
uncertainty. Keep things
out in the open. Stating
what you want to do and the
things you like and dislike
will help you avoid personal
upset. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Everything will be
predetermined by past per-
formance. Taking a creative
or unique approach will
give you the edge you need
to reach your goals. Having
a practical attitude will send
the right message. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Put everything else
aside and concentrate on
keeping the peace. Don't
bend to the whims or de-
mands being put on you
by others. You may have
to work on your .own if you
want to accomplish what
you feel is necessary to get
ahead. ****
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Interference can
be expected if you try to do
too much. Ask for help but
only from those who owe
you for past favors. Don't
allow emotional issues to
cloud your vision or cause


you to take a pass on some-
thing you really want to do.
**
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Take action
and stop worrying. What
you have to offer will sepa-
rate you from the compe-
tition. An emotional rela-
tionship will inspire your
creativity. Stick to your
original plans. ****
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): There is the
possibility of misrepresen-
tation if you don't do your
own negotiating. Nothing
will be perfect, especially if
you have unresolved prob-
lems. Clear your debts or
reputation so you can move
forward. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan.
20-Feb. 18): Emotional
matters will develop and
partnerships should prob-
ably be questioned if things
aren't going according to
plan. A love connection is
apparent and can contrib-
ute to your emotional well-
being and your financial
future. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Listen but
don't agree to getting in-
volved in something that
really isn't your thing. An
emotional reaction regard-
ing a job or what's expected
of you will put you in a vul-
nerable position. Listen and
respond carefully. ***

own wedding. I did not invite
Lenny, and my cousin posted
a nasty message online about
it. When we are at family func-
tions, I ignore him as much as
I possibly can.
Although their marriage
is not a good one, Cassidy is
planning a formal wedding
in a few months. I am torn.
I don't support this, and be-
sides, they are already mar-
ried. If I don't attend, I'm
afraid it will cause a big rift in
my family.
Should I suck it up and
put myself in a situation that

RELATIVE: Your cousin al-
ready knows how you feel
about her husband because
you tried to warn her. Unless
you're as good an actress as
Meryl Streep, your family can-
not have missed the fact that
you avoid him as often as pos--
sible. If the idea of attending
the upcoming performance
gives you an upset stomach,
do everyone a favor and stay
away. And if anyone gives you
heat, be upfront about the
fact you think she's making a
mistake and would feel like a
hypocrite if you went.
