County committee makes EMS choice'


Lifeguard Ambulance
Service operates in
four Southern states.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Members of a Columbia
County committee announced on
Tuesday that they have ranked
Lifeguard Ambulance Service


of Florida as their top choice
to become the county's EMS
provider for the unincorporated
areas of-the county and the Town
of Fort White.
On Tuesday morning, a county
staff-membef committee consist-
ing of Ben Scott, Tres Alkinson,
Rusty Noah, David Kraus and
county manager Dale Williams
ranked the four responses the
county received from a Request


For Qualifications to provide the
privatized service.
County officials want to save
money by having EMS services
provided by a private company.
The county was supplementing
its EMS services with close to
$1.2 million annually.
Several. service providers sub-
mitted responses to the RFQ,
including Century Ambulance
Service, Columbia County


EMS Association, Life Guard
Ambulance Service and Rural
Metro Corporation.
Lifeguard Ambulance Service
of Florida received the lowest
total, making it the highest-rank-
ing firm. The companies received
a numerical ranking from one
to three, with the lowest tabu-
lated score becoming the high-
est-ranked potential service pro-
vider.


Lifeguard Ambulance edged
out Century Ambulance Service
by one point. Rural Metro
Corporation was ranked third.
The response from Columbia
County EMS Association was list-
ed as nonresponsive because it
did not include all of the request-
ed information.

HIGH-SPEED DEBATE


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Charles Paleveda (left) argues with a wall of supporters of high-speed rail as they participate in 'a rally to support the rail at
City Hall Plaza in downtown Tampa Feb. 21. There have been rallies across the state following Gov. Rick Scott's decision to
reject federal funding for a high-speed rail system.

Bipartisan lawsuit claims state must take rail funds


BILL KACZOR
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE Two
state senators, one a
Democrat and the other
a Republican, asked the
Florida Supreme Court
on Tuesday to order Gov.
Rick Scott to accept $2.4
billion in federal stimulus
funds for a high speed rail
project.
Sens. Thad Altman, a
Viera Republican, and
Arthenia Joyner, a Tampa
Democrat, argue that a
state law passed during
a special legislative ses-
sion in 2009 requires the
new Republican governor
to take the money for the
Tampa-Orlando bullet
train.
The emergency petition
also alleges Scott's refusal
to accept the funding vio-
lates the separation of pow-
ers doctrine in the Florida
Constitution, because that
would effectively reduce
state appropriations, which


is an exclusive function of
the Legislature.
'This is not a monarchy,"
Joyner said at a news con-
ference. "He's not a king.
This is a democracy."
"People of different phi-
losophies can agree that
our constitutional democ-
racy needs to be protect-
ed," Altman said. "That
system of government is
in crisis, is in jeopardy."
Scott, a former health
care executive with no
prior government experi-
ence, has said he's opposed
to the rail project because
he believes state taxpayers
would be stuck with bil-
lions in cost overruns and
operating subsidies.
U.S. Transportation
Secretary Ray LaHood
gave Scott until Friday to
accept a modified plan for
local governments to man-
age the project instead of
the state after the two met
last week in Washington.
LaHood said that revision
will absolve Florida of legal

and financial liability.
Scott, though, has given
no indication he'll accept
the money. Just hours after
. his meeting with LaHood
he blasted the project as "a
federal boondoggle'."
The Supreme Court
later ordered Scott to file
a reply to the lawsuit by


noon Wednesday.
Scott issued a statement
criticizing the two sena-
tors but not responding to
the legal issue they have
raised.

Future uncertain for Sheen sitcom


LOS ANGELES
C BS Chief Executive
Leslie Moonves
described the future
of crisis-ridden sitcom
'Two and a Half Men" as
uncertain while star Charlie Sheen
a spoke of a drug-free life with two
"goddess" girlfriends at his home,
dubbed Sober Valley Lodge.
Moonves, interviewed at an inves-
tors' conference Tuesday in San
Francisco, said he hoped TV's top-
rated comedy would return to CBS,
adding, "We'll see."
Sheen's personal woes and public
tirades against producers of 'Two
and a Half Men" reduced the show's
season, but Moonves said CBS isn't
suffering financially in the short
term because paying for fewer epi-
sodes than planned of the expensive
sitcom is "financially a gainer."
"Going down the road ... I don't
know what's going to happen," he
said, then took a poke at Sheen's
ongoing media tour. "He's on the
air quite a bit these days. I wish he
would have worked this hard to pro-
mote himself for an Emmy." Sheen
has been nominated four times for
lead actor in a comedy series for
"Men," but has never won.
Meanwhile, Sheen, 45, was a
guest on Howard Stern's radio show
Tuesday, discussing his career as a
Hollywood playboy, after a return to
NBC's 'Today." The actor kept up
his aggressive public relations cam-
paign against the network, producer
Warner Bros. Television and critics
of his style.
Asked on "Today" about reaction
to previous comments in which
he called himself "a total rock star
from Mars," among other startling
descriptions, Sheen shrugged off
the reaction.
"I am grandiose because I live a
grandiose life. I'm tired of being 'aW

Aguilera briefly detained
for alleged drunkenness
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. l
- Fresh from a stumble at the
Grammys and muffing the national
anthem at the Super Bowl, singer
Christina Aguilera was arrested
early Tuesday near the Sunset 'Strip
on suspicion of being drunk in
public but will not be prosecuted,
authorities said.
Aguilera, 30, was "extremely
intoxicated" when a car driven
.by her boyfriend was stopped at
about 2:45 a.m. on Clark Street, Los
Angeles County sheriff's Deputy
Bill McSweeney said. /
'Sheriff's spokesman Steve
Whitmore said Aguilera "didn't


really understand where she was"
but was cooperative.
"She was not belligerent in any
way whatsoever," Whitmore said.
Deputies saw the Mustang "burn
rubber" and-fishtail onto a street,
he said.
The noise could be.heard 100 feet
away and constituted an "exhibition
of speed" that prompted deputies to
immediately stop the car, Whitmore
said.
Aguilera was released from the
back of the station at about 7:30
a.m., avoiding a cluster of paparazzi
out front She was driven home
by an acquaintance who may have
been a bodyguard, Whitmore said.
j "It ends here," he said. "She's
'home safe and sound so, you know,
job accomplished."

Obama, Jeb Bush
to visit school
MIAMI When
President Barack Obama
and former Florida Gov.
Jeb Bush stand side by
side at a Miami high
school on Friday, it will
be an opportunity for the
Democrat to show a bipar-
tisan approach to educa-
tion reform while allowing
the Republican to push his
own nationwide message
on the issue.
Obama and Bush have
common ground on educa-
tion. Both support increas-
ing the number of charter
schools, tying teacher
evaluations to student per-
formance on standardized
tests and setting high stan-
dards and accountability.
They also believe educa-
tion is key to invigorating
U.S. competitiveness.
With Obama aiming
to rewrite the No Child
Left Behind Act signed
into law by the governor's
brother, former President
George W. Bush, no less
- observers said the joint
appearance can benefit
both.

of low-performing schools
across the nation that
have received money from

County woman injured in house fire __


By TONY BRITT'
tbritt@lakecityreporter. corn

A Columbia County
woman was hospitalized
from smoke inhalation
and burns suffered from a
house fire that destroyed
her home Tuesday.
Authorities have not
released the woman's
name.


The fire occurred
around 2:30 p.m. at a sin-
gle-story, brick home on
Mayhall Road off of Alfred
Markham Road in central
Columbia County.
"It was a house fire
that had one occupant,"
said Columbia County
Fire-Rescue Chief Tres
Atkinson. "She has some
respiratory problems and


some burns to her hands.
She was taken to the hospi-
tal by EMS."
The Columbia County
Fire-Rescue Department
responded to the scene
with four units and 12
firefighters from the Race
Track Road, Ellisville and
Columbia City stations.
"It took us about 20 min-
utes to get the fire under


control," Atkinson said.
"The house was totaled. It
appears the fire was caused
by smoking."
He said the woman's
injuries don't appear to be
life-threatening and she
was taken to the hospital
for observation.
"We just transported
her for precautionary mea-
sures," Atkinson said.


Space shuttle gets needed storage room


MARCIA DUNN
AP Aerospace Writer

CAPE CANAVERAL
- The International Space
Station got a sorely needed
storage room Tuesday, a
21-foot-long supply closet
packed with goods and a
humanoid robot that will
remain boxed up for anoth-
er two months.
The space station and
space. shuttle crews teamed
up to attach the newest mod-
ule, using a hefty robot arm
to anchor it down. It became
the 13th room at the sprawl-
ing outpost, and the only one
devoted entirely to storage.
Built in Italy, the new
compartment is named
Leonardo, after Leonardo da
Vinci.
As Leonardo was bolted
into place, the shuttle-station
complex soared more than
200 miles above Turin, Italy.
"So far, Leonardo's look-
ing very, very happy to be
in his or her new home,"
said space station astronaut
Catherine Coleman.
"It's a big day for us,"
added Discovery crewman
Michael Barratt, "and for
Italy, one of the greatest
contributions to spaceflight
next to Paolo Nespoli." -
. Nespoli is among the six-
person station- crew.


ASSOCIATED PRESS
This image taken from video by NASA television shows astro-
naut Stephen Bowen during a spacewalk Monday.


Leonardo flew seven
times to the space station
as a temporary cargo car-
rier, but always returned
on the shuttles. This time,
it's staying for the duration.
Storage space is at a pre-
mium, and Leonardo will
provide some relief during
the next decade.
The absence of visiting
shuttles after this summer
will make it harder to clear
out the space station. Every
time a shuttle returns from


the station, it's loaded down
with trash and discarded
items.
Space station command-
er Scott Kelly thanked
Mission Control for the
new storage unit. "It's much
needed," he said.
Kelly was the first to
enter the compartment
Tuesday evening. He shook
hands at the threshold with
Discovery's commander,
Steven Lindsey. "Ready for
use," Kelly reported down


to Houston.
The robot delivered
inside Leonardo -
Robonaut 2, better known
as R2 will have to wait
until May before being
unpacked and tested as a
potential astronaut helper.
The space station residents
are swamped with other
chores during this week's
visit by Discovery, and
Endeavour will be along in
April, meaning the robot
will stay put for a couple
more months.

has been providing emergency
response services in Santa Rosa
County since Aug. 2007, said
Ben Scott, purchasing director
of the Columbia County Board
of County Commissioners.
Scott said the company also
provides E.MS 'services for
Dade County, Ga., and is an
interfacility carrier (transport
to and from different medical
facilities) in Mississippi.
Lifeguard Ambulance Service
operates in four southern states
- Florida, Alabama, Georgia
and Tennessee.
"They've proven they can do


this," Scott said. "Based on low-
ering their response times in
Santa Rosa County, I believe
they can provide the service to
Columbia County."
Scott said that during the
negotiation process, county
officials and the EMS provider,
will discuss staff patterns, pos-
sible financial supplements and
maintaining the current service
standards.
The county has not estab-
lished a negotiating period for
contracting with the EMS pro-
vider.
"I assuming the board wants


to move on this quickly," Scott
said.
Lifeguard Air Ambulance
Service was established in 1982
by a group of physicians in
Sarasota.
In 1983, Hospital Corporation
of America bought the com-
pany, along with 600 ground
ambulance services across the
country. In 1990, John Roche,
Lifeguard's Administrator since
1983, and his wife bought the
company and moved its head-
quarters from St: Petersburg to
Gulf Breeze.

His father was a family-orient-

Joyner and Altman are

A tea party favorite, Scott
has been a constant critic
of Democratic President
Barack Obama and his
stimulus program
Altman,. though, said
Scott apparently isn't
against accepting stimulus
money because he has writ-
ten LaHood suggesting that


Florida instead be allowed
to use the rail funds for
port improvements.
The money, though, will
be redistributed to high
speed rail projects in other
states if Florida doesn't
take it.
"Sending $2.4 billion to
another state would be a
colossal mistake," Altman
said. "We just hope the gov-
ernor gets out of the way of
innovation."
Florida stands to become
a high speed rail manufac-


during center as a result of
the project, Altman said. He
said that would be an ideal
way to employ thousands of
Florida's aerospace work-
ers who will be losing their.
jobs as the space shuttle
program winds down.
"We're talking jobs, jobs,
jobs," Joyner said.
The rail project is expect-
ed to produce 24,000 direct
and thousands more indi-
rect jobs, she said, noting
Scott campaigned on a job
creation platform last year.

English-


only bills


send bad


message

Here we go again,
with a new effort
to force everyone
in this country
to speak English.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is
promoting an English-only
bill. To his credit, Sen. Marco'
Rubio (R-Fla.) has said he
favors making English our
"official" language in Florida
it already is but doesn't want
to ban other languages.
The First Amendment
states that "Congress shall
make no law abridging the
freedom of speech." That
must include the languages
people choose to speak.
The ability to conduct
business in other languages
is an obvious asset. Greater
investment and trade com-
ing from Mexico, Japan,
China and other countries
should inspire politicians to
expand rather than restrict
the languages that are
accepted for legal docu-
ments.
It's true that many immi-
grants come to this country
unable to speak English.
But more than 80 percent of
their children are fluent in
the language. English is the
primary language of about
94 percent of their grand-
children.
English-only bills send a
clear message to people in
other countries: We don't
want you here. As America
continues to fall behind aca-
demically and economically,
we may be persuading some
of the brightest minds to
stay home and let their
talents move their countries
ahead of ours.

Huckabee stands up for Michelle


M
Americans.


ichelle Obama
has an unlikely
friend in
her battle to
slim down


Mike Huckabee, the former
governor of Arkansas who
claims not to have decided
whether to once again seek the
Republican nomination for pres-
ident, has told the self-styled
icons of conservatism to find
another target when it comes
to weight watching. In fact, he
says the First Lady should be
praised for her campaign to
improve the dietary habits of a
population vastly overweight.
Mrs. Obama "has been
unfairly criticized" Huckabee
told reporters at a Christian
Science breakfast the other
morning. She has never advo-
cated "the government should
take over our dinner plates." He
acknowledged without naming
them that he was taking on the
right wing talk show heavies
like Rush Limbaugh and Laura
Ingraham, who have criticized
the first lady for trying to inter-
fere with national eating habits
while at the same time ignoring
her own advice, allegedly scarf-
ing down hamburgers and ribs.
"We ought to be thanking
her," Huckabee said, noting that
obesity has become a national
security problem as well as an
economic one. He said thou-
sands of would-be military
recruits are turned down daily
because of their expanding
waistlines. Huckabee knows
of which he speaks, having
dropped at least a whole other
person from his own six-foot
frame in a highly-publicized
exercise a number of years ago.
Some of that problem seems to
have slipped back, however, in
what might be attributed to too


Dan K.Thomasson
many lunch and dinner appear-
ances and book tour promo-
tions.
It was the second time in a
few weeks that a prominent
Republican conservative has
chastised fellow party members
for paying too much attention
to radio talkers like Limbaugh,
who by the way, as with mil-
lions of the rest of us, should be
heeding Mrs. Obama's advice
when it comes to food intake.
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels,
also a prospective candidate for
the GOP nomination, spoke of
expanding the party's reach in a
major address to the influential
Conservative Political Action
Conference. He warned that
ideological "purity in martyr-
dom is for suicide bombers,"
adding that to be successful,
the Republican Party "will need
people who never tune in to
Rush or Glenn (Beck) or Laura
or Sean (Hannity)."
Daniels' remarks unsurpris-
ingly brought grumbling from
a portion of his audience who
regard the conservative talk
show hosts as the real heralds.
of true conservatism and hang
on their every word. But, as
with Huckabee, Daniels seems
to have weighed the adverse
political reactions against telling
the truth about the priorities
needed to solve some of the
nation's basic problems. Daniels
in the past has angered some
conservatives for advocating
a moratorium on social issues


to concentrate on putting the
.nation's fiscal house in order.
Certainly, defending Mrs.
Obama for any reason, even one
that is so obviously innocuous
and necessary as promoting
healthier eating, is dangerous
for those even contemplating
seeking the presidential nomi-
nation in a party where a sig-
nificant number have an undis-
guised animosity for the current
occupants of the White House.
Huckabee openly conceded that
his remarks "will probably get
me in trouble."
Daniels, on the other hand,
has shown more than a little
independence from the dictates
of the far right on some of the
issues. At this stage, both men
probably would be counted as
long shots for the nomination,
although Daniels at least has
the open backing of some of the
GOP's leading old-line acolytes
who believe moving to the cen-
ter is the only path back to the
White House in 2012.
Whether or not Huckabee,
who admits that his personal
finances are comfortable for
the first time since becoming
a major political figure, wants
to put it on the line again is
anyone's guess. A prudent man
probably would decide against
it. On the other hand, his suc-
cess as a lecturer, broadcast
host and book writer depends
on his political visibility. Last
time out, he says, he hocked
everything he had and doesn't
look forward to doing that
again.
Whatever, his defense of Mrs.
Obama's anti-obesity campaign
hopefully is a recipe that mil-
lions will find as a positive inclu-
sion in their cookbooks.

Bad guys hooked on your tax refund


Right at the top of the
Internal Revenue
Service website
the genuine IRS
site, mind you is
a heading asking the question
every taxpayer wants to know,
"Where's My Refund?"
Click on it and the very next
sentence you see is: "Don't fall
for scams about your refund.
IRS never initiates e-mail," and
it invites visitors to click on
another site called, "identify and
report refund scams."
The Treasury asks taxpay-
ers to report any suspicious
e-mails or websites purporting
to be connected to the IRS to
phishing(at)irs.com. Phishing,
as anyone unfortunate enough
to be victimized knows, is a
plausible-looking but still phony
e-mail or website that elicits per-
sonal information for fraudulent
purposes.


And, as Isaac Wolf of Scripps
Howard News Service reports,-
one of the fastest growing forms
of identity theft is crooks using
purloined Social Security num-
bers and personal information
to divert tax refunds from the
rightful recipients. The Federal
Trade Commission's database
reveals a tripling of tax- and
wage-related ID thefts from 2005
to 2009.
ID theft complaints tend to
wax and wane as the authorities
crack down on one sort of fraud,
and it takes the crooks awhile
to settle on another. The FTC
data shows an overall drop in
credit card-related complaints,
but as we've seen, purloined tax
refunds are way up, as are lift-
ing identities to open new utility
accounts.
One of the clever wrinkles in
diverting tax refunds is to gain
the necessary taxpayer informa-


tion by offering free tax-filing
services. Those unfortunate peo-
ple who took advantage of one
such offer found their returns
doctored to justify large refunds
with the cash sent to the con art-
ists. The service claimed to be
approved by the IRS; in fact, it
was based in Belarus in Eastern
Europe.
The IRS website offers two
examples of phishing e-mails.
One official looking form invites
the taxpayers to apply, "to
access the form for your tax
refund." It is scarily impressive
- but the IRS doesn't do busi-
ness that way. The other form is
written in that broken English
we've come to know from the
Nigerian scams.
Either way, you can't be too
careful, and remember, it's your
money.

Should


we allow


students


to arm?

er to drive a stake
through than the
one that beats in the,
chest of a bad idea.
Accordingly, the Associated
Press reports that 12 state leg-
islatures are considering pro-
posals that would allow holders
of concealed weapon permits -
to bring handguns onto college
campuses. Among the states '
considering these proposals
are Florida, Michigan, and
Arizona, as well as my own
state, Texas.
In fact, in Texas, more than
half of the representatives in
the House have signed on as
co-sponsors of a bill that would.
force colleges and universities
to allow guns on campus. The
Senate is expected to adopt
the proposal, as well, and Gov.
Perry, who enjoys being pho-
tographed while discharging a
pistol, is sure to sign the bill.
I'm guessing that the pro-
ponents of concealed weapons
on campus have all at some
point referenced the shooting
at Virginia Tech in 2007, dur-
ing which a deranged gunman
killed 32 students and teach-
ers. If only, proponents say, '
some percentage of the teach-
ers and students had been car-
rying handguns, the massacre
would have been prevented.
Nevertheless, educational
leaders across the nation
are not thrilled. Francisco
Cigai-roa, the chancellor of the
University of Texas System,
worries that encouraging more
handguns on campuses will
actually make them less safe.
For one thing, suicides are
already the second-leading
cause of death among college
students; it's entirely reason-
able to speculate that more
access to handguns an
instant and ever-ready instru-
*ment of death will encour-
age more impulsive suicides.
Accidents are likely to
increase, as well. Proponents
of handguns on campus rely
on the notion that anyone who
can pass a background check
and complete a concealed
weapons training course will
automatically acquire the matu-
rity and judgment to carry and
use a firearm safely. But in
fact accidental discharges are
not unheard of even among
the best-trained handlers of
firearms. We have no reason
to believe that every 21-year-
old college student with a new
Glock is going to be able to
resist showing it around to his
pals. Accidents are inevitable.
Given these downsides, the
motivation behind the push for
guns on campus is worth con-
sideration. The wish to defend
oneself in a situation like the
one at Virginia Tech is entirely
rational. But a fantasy is at play
here that goes well beyond
self-defense.
Confidence that the citizen/
vigilante, untrained, inexperi-
enced, and excited, would be
able to use his weapon judi-
ciously in a crowd where some
portion of the other students
are pulling their own weapons,
is unwarranted.
If state legislators genuinely
believe otherwise, they should
take rational protective mea-
sures like the employment of
trained professional shooters
and their generous placement
in campus buildings and class-
rooms. Generally this would
be a waste of money, but if it
derailed plans to arm a cadre
of young guys with ready trig-
ger fingers, it might be the
most important step in the
direction of safety that they
could make.

NATION & WORLD WEDNESDAY. MARCH 2, 2011


House passes bill to avert shutdown


By ANDREW TAYLOR
Associated Press

WASHINGTON The GOP-
controlled House handily passed
legislation Tuesday to cut the
federal budget by $4 billion and
avert a partial shutdown of the
government for two weeks.
The measure was approved by
a bipartisan 335-91 vote that came
shortly after Democrats in the
Senate said they would go along.
The White House had sought
a four-week or longer stopgap
bill but that effort fizzled shortly
after it began.
The measure the House passed
buys time for more difficult talks
on a longer-term measure. House
Republicans last month approved
a measure to cut $61 billion from
agency operating budgets over
the second half of the fiscal year
that expires Sept. 30. That bill is
strongly opposed by Democrats,
and the White House promises
a veto.
The $4 billion in cuts are
some of the easiest for Congress
to make, hitting' accounts that
President Barack Obama already
has proposed eliminating and
reaping some of the money saved
by earlier moves by Republicans
to ban lawmakers from "earmark-
ing" pet projects back to their
districts and states.


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D- Nev.) talks to the media after a Democratic policy luncheon on
Tuesday. A bipartisan 335-91 vote passed legislation Tuesday to cut the federal budget by $4 billion.


Yielding to the inevitable,
Senate Democrats said they would
go along. Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid told reporters he
expected the two-week bill to go
to Obama for his signature within
48 hours.


'We'll pass this and then look at
funding the government on a long-
term basis," Reid said.
Passage of the short-term mea-
sure will set a two-week time frame
for negotiations on a bill to keep the
government running through Sept


30. The White House and leaders
of both parties in both houses will
be involved in the talks.
Earlier Tuesday, the White
House pressed for $8 billion in
immediate spending cuts as part
of a four- or five-week stopgap mea-


sure.
"We do believe that if $4 billion
in cuts over two weeks is accept-
able, that the $8 billion over four
or five weeks is something that we
could agree on," said presidential
Press Secretary Jay Carney.
The White House trial balloon
was quickly popped.
"If there had been a conversation
about this 10 days ago or two days
ago, we might have had something
to talk abdut" Republican House
Speaker John Boehner said earlier.
"But the fact is we were forced to
move on our own"
Tuesday's bill, which now goes
to the Senate, is a relatively mild
volley in a party-defined spending
battle that promises to go on for
months or years.
Republicans want to slash more
than $60 billion from agency bud-
gets over the coming months as
a down payment on larger reduf-
tions later in the year, but are set1
fling for just $4 billion in especially
easy cuts as the price for the two-
week stopgap bill.
"These cuts reflect this
Republican majority's contain
ued commitment to significant-'
ly reduce spending, rein in the
nation's exploding deficits and
debt and to help our economy con-
tinue on the road to recovery," said
House Appropriations Committee
Chairman Harold Rogers (R-Ky).

Worker shopped

HOUSTON -
Investigators said a home

Investigators believe the

Authorities said Tuesday
they are still trying to

Large quake hits
central Arkansas
GREENBRIER, Ark. -
The central Arkansas town

and after being woken up by
the largest quake to hit the
state in 35 years, residents
said Monday they're unset-

The U.S. Geological
Survey recorded the
quake at 11 p.m. Sunday,
centered just northeast of
Greehbrier, about 40 miles
north of Little Rock. It was
the largest of more than
800 quakes to strike the
area since September in
what is now being called

Libyan rebels


repel Gadhafi


forces in battle


By MAGGIE MICHAEL
Associated Press
TRIPOLI, Libya
- Residents of the
rebel-held city closest to.
Libya's capital celebrated
with a victory march
Tuesday after repelling
an overnight attack by
Moammar Gadhafi's
forces. But troops loyal
to the longtime leader
clamped down on a stra-
tegic mountain town as
they fought to reclaim
areas near Tripoli, resi-
dents said.
The rebels have been
fighting to consolidate
their gains as the interna-
tional community weighs
new moves to isolate the
longtime Libyan leader,
including the possibility
of creating a no-fly zone
over Libya.
Secretary of State
Hillary Rodham Clinton
warned that Libya is at
risk of collapsing into
I


a "protracted civil war"
amid increasingly violent
clashes between the two
sides.
Witnesses in Zawiya
said pro-Gadhafi forces
battled rebels for six
hours overnight but could
not retake control of
the city 30 miles west of
Tripoli. They said the last
of several assaults by the
Gadhafi loyalists came at
around 3 a.m. local time.
"Allahu Akbar (God
is Great) for our vic-
tory," residents of Zawiya
chanted as they paraded
through the city's main
square.
Some carried on their
shoulders an air force
colonel they said had just
defected to the rebels'
side.
"We were worried
about air raids but that
did not happen," said one
resident who spoke on
condition of anonymity
for fear of reprisals.

Lady Tigers have mercy

on Trinity Christian, 11-1


Columbia uses
six runs in fourth
inning to cruise.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
What started sluggish for
the Columbia High Lady
Tigers ended in a walk-
off homer to earn an 11-1
mercy-rule win over Trinity
Christian Academy on
Tuesday in Lake City.
A fielding error allowed
Meghan Hackley to reach
base during the Trinity's
first trip to the plate. Three
batters later Erika Ward
brought in Hackley- off a
second error for a 1-0 lead.
That was all Trinity would


earn.
Columbia couldn't con-
nect in the first three
innings at the plate, but the
fourth inning broke them
out of a funk to the tune of
six runs.
Kayli Kvistad started
the onslaught with a tri-
ple tol bring in Stephanie
Pilkington, who had
reached first on a hit ear-
lier in the inning, to tie the
game 1-1. From there, the
Lady Tigers took control.
Jessica Keene's infield
ground ball brought in
Kvistad for the 2-1 lead.
After Payton Sund's walk,
Brandi Morgan would
bat her in with the bases
loaded.
Michaela Burton contin-


ued to unload the bases
with a shot to bring in
Jordan Williams for a 4-1
lead. The inning would end
on a running error at sec-
ond base, but not before
Pilkington's single scored
Keeley Murray and Morgan
for a 6-1 edge.
The Tigers kept the bats
going in the bottom of the
fifth, scoring two more
runs.
Sund brought in Kvistad
off another bunt, which
the Lady Tigers' executed
throughout the game for
the 7-1 lead and Murray
brought in Brittany Morgan
for an 8-1 lead after a field-
ing error.

Florida used a sec-

Alabama 78-51 on Tuesday
night.


The Gators clinched
at least a share of the
Southeastern Conference
championship and
can claim their fifth
outright league title
with a win at No. 21
Vanderbilt on Saturday.
Florida (23-6, 12-3
Southeastern Conference)
also would win the league
if Georgia beats Alabama
earlier Saturday.
The Crimson Tide
(19-10, 11-4) needed a
road win to improve their
chances of making the


NCAA tournament
Now, the Tide prob-
ably need to win the SEC
tournament to earn
the league's automatic
bid.
Alabama probably would
like to avoid seeing the
Gators again in the post-
season.
Florida dominated
every aspect of the second
half, using a 10-0 run
to, build a double-digit
lead and then pouring it
on with 3-pointers and
dunks.

Match Play offers


snapshot of golf scene


By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press

MARANA, Ariz.
- The PGA Tour .could
have skipped the West
Coast swing and gone
straight to the Match Play
Championship, which pro-
vided a perfect snapshot
of everything going in the
world of golf.
Europe looked as strong
as ever.
Martin Kaymer showed
why he is No. 1 in the world
ranking. Lee Westwood
made people wonder why
he was.
'BubbaWatson and Rickie
Fowler, when they're not
making videos for Twitter,
offered more evidence
that their homemade golf
swings are just as compel-
ling as their fashion acces-
sories.
And has anyone seen
Tiger Woods?
Europe has been the
strongest continent in golf
over the last year, and
Dove Mountain was no
exception. Luke Donald
of England and Kaymer
(Germany) reached the
championship match, the
second straight year for an
.all-European final.
Donald was so good
that he never trailed after
any hole in any of his six
matches, and wound up
playing fewer holes (89)
than the winner of the Bob
Hope Classic (92). Who
would have guessed that?
After winning, Donald
said European golf was
going through a "purple
patch."
For the Americans, it's
more black-and-blue.
Only two Americans
have reached, the champi-
onship match in the last
five years Woods and
Stewart Cink in 2008. One
year ago, Americans were
Nos. 1-2-3 'in the world
ranking. Europe now occu-
pies the first four spots in
the ranking for the first
time in nearly two decades.
Woods is the highest-
ranked American at No.
5, his lowest position since
the week before he won
the 1997 Masters.
Before anyone writes the
Americans off too quickly,
they have had six winners
on the PGA Tour this year.
Then again, their average
ranking when they won
was No. 171. Watson at
Torrey Pines was the only
winner inside the top 75.


The best American at the
moment? Good question.
' Mark Wilson has won
twice, at the Sony Open
and Phoenix Open, which
doesn't exactly make him
a favorite at the Masters,
where he will be playing a
major for only the fourth
time.
Wilson advanced to the
second round of the Match
Play, and that was note-
worthy for whom he beat
- Dustiri Johnson.
There was little debate
that Johnson was the most
promising young American
going into 2011, if not one
of the emerging talents in
the world. Two months
into the season, however,
he has only made news
because of Natalie Gulbis
and Jim Gray.
He was linked romanti-
cally to Gulbis until the
LPGAstar saidthatJohnson
was handling their PR.
Meanwhile, Gray was sent
home by the Golf Channel
for asking Johnson in the
middle of his round why
he was late to the tee for a
two-shot penalty.
Speaking of tardiness,
the Match Play
Championship 'renewed
talk about the pace of play.
One week after Kevin Na
nearly turned Riviera into a
five-day tournament, J.B.
Holmes took some of the
shine off a riveting match
because he was so deliber-
ate. Watson rallied from 5
down with eight holes to
play to square the match
on the 18th and win it on
the 19th. But the match
took nearly five hours to
play, and not all of that
is down to rulings from
the desert on the final two
holes.
The opening match of
the tournament between
Cink and Ian Poulter took
over four hours before it
reached the 18th hole. Part
of the delay was when they
each made double bogey
on the par-3 sixth, prompt-
ing rules official Stephen
Cox to tell Poulter on the
next fairway, "Look, I real-
ize you've both taken a trip
to In-N-Out for a double-
double, but I'd appreciate
it if you would pick up the
pace."
Watson and Fowler won't
get accused of slow play.
Both of them bring old-
school qualities to the
game, and both are reach-
ing the point where they
can move the needle.


Watson, with the pink
shaft in his driver and a
$525,000 watch he sport-
ed from a Richard Mille
endorsement, came within
one hole of winning the
PGA Championship last
year. 'He held off Phil
Mickelson to win at Torrey
Pines, and showed off his
tremendous shotmaking
at Dove Mountain. He's
always had raw talent. Now
he is getting comfortable
*with the spotlight.
Fowler, dressed in pink
from his shoes to his cap,
hit two of the most impres-
sive shots all week with his
4-iron to 15 feet for eagle
on the 11th and a 4-iron to
2 feet for eagle on the 13th
to hand Mickelson is worst
loss ever in the event.
Fowler went down the
next day, not unusual at
this tournament He has all
the tools to be a star except
the most important asset,
which is a trophy. But as
Mickelson said in defeat, "I.
think he's going to do a lot
for American golf."
Mickelson remains an
enigma. He played six
straight, weeks, from Abu
Dhabi to Dove Mountain,
with only one chance at
winning.
That's still .one more
chance than Woods, who
remains the biggest mys-
tery in golf.
There is not much to
say about the.former No.
1, although that didn't
stop TV commentary from
gushing that swing coach
Sean Foley said Woods'
spin rate and launch angle
were leveling out. Good to
know.
He lost on the 19th hole
to Thomas Bjorn with a
swing Woods had to
rehearse too many times
and a 3-wood into the des-
ert. It wasn't as awful as it
looked, for the right side
of the fairway is the best
angle to make birdie. Even
so, he would have been bet-
.ter off missing the 8-foot
birdie putt on the 18th hole
that forced overtime than
losing the way he did.
Johnny Miller compared
Woods with Mike Tyson,
not because of Iron Mike's
criminal behavior and out-
rageous comments, but
because he was never the
same after losing to Buster
Douglas.
The longer Woods goes
.without winning, it's not
unreasonable to wonder
about that.


By HOWARD FENDRICH
Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
New York Giants' John
Mara joined the NFL group
negotiating with the play-
ers' union Tuesday, the first
team owner to participate
since a federal mediator
began overseeing the talks.
Atlanta Falcons president
Rich McKay,' chairman of
the league's competition
committee, and Washington
Redskins general man-
ager Bruce Allen also
were among those joining
NFL Commissioner Roger
Goodell when mediation
resumed Tuesday at 1 p.m.,
59 hours before the current
collective bargaining agree-
ment was due to expire.
"I don't think you could
have a greater sense of
urgency," said Jeff Pash, the'
league's lead labor nego-
tiator. 'We all know what
the calendar is, and we all
know what's at stake for
everybody. And that's why
we're here. We're going to
be here as long as it takes


and work as hard as we
can work to get something
done."
There was no telling,
of course, whether the
sides would fare any bet-
ter Tuesday than they did
during more than 40 hours
of meetings spread across
seven consecutive days of
mediation that wrapped up
last week. When that round
ended Thursday, media-.
tor George Cohen said
the league and the NFL
Players Association still had
"very strong differences"
on the "all-important core
issues."
The CBA runs out at mid-
night as Thursday becomes
Friday on the East Coast,
and the owners could lock
out the players afterward.
The union could also decer-
tify essentially, declare
itself out of the business of
representing players and
let the players take their
chances in court.
Whatever happens
between now and Friday
could, eventually wind up
causing the country's most


popular sport to lose regu-
lar-season games to a work
stoppage for the first time
since 1987. Or everything
could be resolved by man-
agement and labor in an
industry with revenues top-
ping $9 billion annually.
When Seattle Seahawks
guard Chester Pitts left
Tuesday's negotiating ses-
sion at about 4:30 p.m., he
was asked whether he is
optimistic about a new CBA
agreement being reached.
"What's the word we're
using right now? 'Cautiously
optimistic,"' Pitts said.
"We're making a point to
go into it doing all we can
to do things the right way,
and hopefully we get a deal
done."
Asked about Mara's pres-
ence, Pitts said: "He's a
businessman, and business-
men like to make money.
So sometimes you've got
to come, make sure you're
hovering around, make sure
everything's being done to
get a deal done. And I'm
pretty sure he'll say he had
that sense."

DEAR ABBY


Neighbor's nightly water show

is beginning to make waves


DEAR ABBY: My hus-'
band and I moved into our
first home two years ago. A
few months after that, our
lives got even better with the
addition of our son.
After living here for a while,
we noticed that the neighbors
behind us have a large win-
dow in their shower, and they-
tend to take a lot of nighttime
showers. (I'm sure you can
see where this is heading.)
For a long time, we chose
to ignore it, but my motherly
instincts are getting the better
of me now. I can't help think-
ing of the day when my son
is old enough to realize what
he's seeing.
My husband and I have
been debating whether to
tell our neighbors we can see
them showering. Sometimes
they get pretty carried away
in there.
Should I tell them we can
see everything? And if so,
how do I go about it without
causing them to be embar-
rassed, ashamed or angry?
- GETTING AN EYEFUL
IN OHIO
DEAR GETTING AN
EYEFUL: Another shower
letter! Write your neighbors a
polite note telling them there
is a clear view into their show-
er when their lights are on
at night Explain that before
your son was born this was
not of concern to you, but now
that you have a small child,
you would appreciate it if they
would work with you on a so-

lution to this problem. They
may not be aware they've been
putting on an X-rated show.
DEAR ABBY: I have
worked in the same office for
more than a decade. Last year
I returned to school in an ef-
fort to finally get into a field
where I can earn more mon-
ey. I will graduate next spring
and, hopefully, will begin a
new career.
I need your advice about
how to approach my boss
when the time comes. This is
a-very small office and, while
I wouldn't call us friends, we
probably have a closer rela-
tionship than most people in a
larger office would have. Any
thoughts on the best way to
approach this? -- GIVING
NOTICE ON THE EAST
COAST
DEAR GIVING NO-
TICE: Because you have
been in school for the length
of time you have, your an-
nouncement will probably not
come as much of a surprise to
your employer. However, be-
fore you give notice, be sure
you have another job in place.
When you do, speak to your
employer, thank him or her


for your job. Explain that you
are ready to start in your new
field and offer to spend a few
weeks training your replace-
ment to make any transition
easier.
DEAR ABBY: My hus-
band recently had major
surgery. I wanted to call a
few close friends and family
members beforehand to let
them know. When I told my
husband, we had an argu-
ment He felt they would feel
obligated to respond. I felt
it would be nice for both of
us to have support and that
they would want to know. As
it turned out, I made some
calls and we did receive some
much-needed support Was
I wrong to do this? (My hus-
band wants your opinion on
the matter.) GRATEFUL
FOR HELPING HANDS IN
COLORADO
DEAR GRATEFUL: The
prospect of major surgery
can be frightening both for
the patient and the spouse.
Your husband may have pre-
ferred to downplay it because
he was afraid broadcasting it
was displaying weakness. You
obviously found the prospect
traumatic and didn't want to
be alone at that time. Was it
wrong to ask for help? I don't
think so. My advice to your
husband is to lighten up and
get well soon.

4V --- 4A--- K-


FRANK & ERNEST


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Concentrate on
working as a team player.
Greater stability will be
established if you are com-
mitted to whatever project
you are working on. By of-
fering your time, services
or listening to the concerns
being expressed, you will
enhance an important part-
nership. ***
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): Don't make a
foolish mistake by letting
your emotions come be-
tween you and what' you
want. Everything is falling
into place. All you have to
do is what's expected of
you. It's up to you to show.
your worth. **
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Follow your heart,
your dreams and your intu-
ition. Take on a little extra
work and you'll send a posi-
tive message to your boss,
clients or colleagues. Pick
and choose what you take
on. Actions speak louder
than words. *****
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): You will learn a
lot from someone you con-
sider a doer. If you don't try
to fit too much into one day
or one project, you will do
a good job. A couple of per-
sonal changes will alter not
only your outlook but your
status. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug.


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

22): You can make a big
splash with someone who
interests you personally or
professionally. A partner-
ship can ease your stress
and help stabilize your life
financially and emotionally.
Make alterations to your
home environment. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Put a little pressure
on someone you feel owes
you. Call in favors and take
action regarding a new po-
sition or job you want. Do
something you've wanted
to do for a long time that
will boost your confidence
and improve your attitude.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Things are looking
up both personally and pro-
fessionally. You will have
greater insight into what
others want from you and
can, therefore, deliver the
goods. The chance to en-
hance your romantic life is
apparent. *****
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Take a good look
at what you are up against
and take action. There is no
room for second-guessing.
You need to be sure and to
act fast. Your emotions will
play games with you if you
don't stick to your game


plan. **
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Rely on your
past experience in order
to make the right decision
now. Someone is likely to
play games with you men-
tally if you don't have your
facts straight. Preparation
will be the key. ****
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): You'll be in-
clined to overreact if some-
one makes a last-minute
change that upsets your
plans. Keep moving in the
direction you feel you need
to go and you will discover
how capable you are and
send a strong signal that
you don't need to rely on
anyone for anything. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): You can enhance
your life by making altera-
tions to your living space.
Money that is owed to you
or that you don't have to
work for will be presented
in an unusual set of circum-
stances. A promise made
must be kept. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): You'll be
broadsided by what some-
one does behind your back.
Don't retaliate. Do what's
least expected and you will
regain your status quo. It's
the little things that will
count today. Keep it simple
and to the point. ***

Home & Patio Show brings business to shoppers


pleased with the
variety of businesses
coming to the Eighth
Annual North Florida
Home & Patio Show, according
to show officials.
"This will be the most diversi-
fied group of businesses we've
had of any year," said Mike
Gordon, show chairman.
More than 70 businesses and
organizations will participate
in the event 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Sunday at the Columbia County
Fairgrounds.
The home and patio show is
presented by the Rotary Club
of Lake City Downtown, and
co-sponsors are the Lake City
Reporter, Sunstate Federal Credit
Union and Newman Media Inc.
Businesses in the show will
come not only from Columbia
County and nearby areas but
Tampa, Ocala, Jacksonville,
Gainesville and even Texas and
Georgia, Gordon said.
"Where else can you have busi-
nesses come to you?" he said.
"You'd have to travel to several
states for the representation we'll
have at the fair grounds. It's one-
stop shopping."
This year's show will feature a
healthy percentage of returning
businesses as well as a whole lot
more of first time participants,
Gordon said.
Show founder George Metivier,
who died in October 2009, devel-
oped the event as a fundraiser
for the Rotary Club. All proceeds
from the show go to local chari-
ties the organization supports.
Metivier had experience
organizing a home show for a
Rotary Club while living in New
Hampshire.
The first show cleared about
$3,000 for charity, with more than
5,000 people passing through the

gates, Gordon said. Now about
$25,000 is raised and a minimum
of 12,000 attend.
"There's a whole lot of folks
coming out," he said. "We literally
have folks come from surround-
ing counties. It's a beautiful thing.
It's not just folks in Columbia
County by any means."
The show is industry limited
and features home and patio-
related businesses, Gordon said.
Some wildcard businesses are


also included for variety.
"Just about everything related
to the home and patio, you will
find that, and some unique busi-
nesses that wouldn't necessarily
be in a home show," he said.
.Initially the show was held
in June, but moved to a March
date.
"Year One of the first home
show was extremely hot," Gordonr
said. "We went to early in March
and now always have it the first


weekend of March. We've found
we're blessed with. great weather
and it's the perfect time of the
year."
The two things that make the
show unique is there is no park-
ing or admission fee and all pro-
ceeds go to charity, Gordon said.
It also provides one-stop shop-
ping for home improvement.
The show gives new business-
es the opportunity to really get a
name out to the public, he. said."


Returning businesses can continue
to keep a face out in the public.
Word of mouth and advertis-
ing with the show's co-sponsors,
such as the Lake City Reporter,
help bring in both interested
businesses and people in the sur-
rounding areas, Gordon said.
"We thank the Reporter for all
its support," he said. "The bot-
tom line is, we wouldn't have
success without great co-spon-
sors."
