Former LCPD officer files EEOC case


Complainant says
he became victim
of discrimination.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Former Lake City Police
Department Cpl. John M.
Spahalski has filed a complaint


with the Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission against
the LCPD, alleging he was the
victim of discrimination based on
disability.
Spahalski, a cancer survi-
vor, filed the complaint in early
January. He worked as a Lake
City police officer at two differ-
ent periods in his career, from
February 1991 until his resigna-


tion in September 1999, and again
o from September
2004 until March
2009, when he
underwent sur-
.gery for skin
cancer.,
Spahalski
~ahalski received a letter
Spahaski dated Feb. 17
from the EEOC field office in


Tampa, indicating that his case
has been assigned to the agency's
Mediation Unit for processing.
The EEOC, which handles
federal workplace discrimina-
tion allegations, said Spahalski is
claiming personal harm because
on Dec. 1, 2010, he was not
considered for an interview to
possibly be re-hired. Spahalski
alleges that LCPD Chief Argatha


Gilmore promised to re-hire him
after he was healthy enough to
return to work.
"Chief Gilmore told me that
I could not be considered for
an interview for re-employment,
until I had medical clearance by
the city doctor," Spahalski wrote.

Dealing with
flames around
anhydrous
ammonia, liq-
uefied propane
gas, chlorine and other
hazardous materials calls
for special precautions by
first responders to ensure
safety.
Wednesday afternoon,
more than 20 firefighters
and other first responders
from the city and county
attended a hazardous
materials training session.
The joint training ses-.
sion, which was held at the
old Boys Club property
on Lake Jeffery Road, was
attended by members
of the Lake City Fire
Department, Columbia
County Fire-Rescue, and
representatives from
the Columbia County
Emergency Management
Agency and Target.
Lake City Fire
Department Battalion
Chief Hank Rossell, who
also serves as the depart-
ment's hazardous materials
coordinator, said several
trucks transporting similar
chemicals travel through
Columbia County on the
interstate roadways each
day. He said the training
session was held to famil-
iarize local firefighters
with techniques needed for
such situations.
"Ifs important to do
training like this to make
us aware of how we can
handle the product,"
Rossell said. "It just gives
us an awareness and a
heads-up on how it reacts:"
The, training sessions
on Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday, were funded
through a $3,000 Target
Corporation grant.
The sessions. They
included four hours of
classroom seminars before
taking part in four hours
of hand-on training, during
which they participated in
hazmat leak scenarios.
The training featured

Williams undergoes treatment


NEW YORK
Tennis star Serena
Williams underwent
"emergency treatment"
Monday, days after doc-
tors discovered a blood
clot in her lungs, People magazine
reported.
Spokeswoman Nicole Chabot told
the magazine that Williams "under-
went emergency treatment for a hema-
toma suffered as a result of treatment
for a more critical situation."
Williams suffered from a pulmonary
embolism last week, Chabot said. The
29-year-old Williams is being treated- at
a Los Angeles hospital.
"Doctors are continuing to moni-
tor her situation closely to avoid
additional complications," Chabot
told the magazine.
The winner of 13 Grand Slam
titles, Williams attended Sunday
night's Elton John AIDS Foundation
Academy Awards Viewing Party.
On Tuesday night, Williams
posted on her Twitter account
'Tough day." A few minutes later she

Scott files answer
to rail lawsuit
TALLAHASSEE Gov.
Rick Scott has filed a
sharply worded response
to a lawsuit challenging
his refusal to accept $2.4
billion in federal money for
the Tampa-Orlando high
Speed rail project
Scott's respofise filed
Wednesday begins by
saying two state senators.
asked the'court to step in
after their "policy prefer-
-ences have not prevailed in
-the political process."
State Sens. Arthenia
Joyner, a.Tampa Democrat,
and Thad Altman, a Viera
Republican, contend
Florida law gives Scott no
choice but to accept the
stimulus funding.
Scott says he won't do it
because Florida taxpayers
may be stuck with billions
in cost overruns and sub-
sidies.
The governor has until
Friday to accept a revised
plan for local management
designed to absolve the
state of liability.

Wildfire shuts
stretch of 1-95
MIMS A Florida
wildfire has shut down a
stretch of interstate high-
way for the second time
this week on the state's
central Atlantic coast.
Interstate 95 was closed
in both directions for a lit-
tle over 20 miles as smoke
covered the highway. The
fire that started Monday
has burned 16,000 acres,
or about 25 square miles.
So far, it has destroyed
a mobile home and two
hunting camps. 1-9,5 was
first closed late Monday
and reopened Tuesday
morning.
The blaze is about
25 miles north of the
Kennedy Space Center,
and across the Intracoastal
Waterway from Cape

Canaveral. NASA has said
operations there are not
affected.
Officials said the fire
was 25 percent contained
as of early Wednesday
after some rain. A broad
swath of central and South
Florida has'seen its driest
few months in nearly 80
years.

Budget cutters eye
public employees
TALLAHASSEE
- Florida's budget cut-
ters are adhering to what's
known in management
accounting circles as
the 'Willie Sutton rule,"
named for the infamous
robber once quoted as
saying he targeted banks
because "that's where the
money is."
The rule holds that the
greatest opportunity for
cost savings can be found
where the most money is
spent. Sutton's name has
stuck to it although he
later denied making the
comment.
In Florida's budget,
most of the money is in
salaries and benefits for
state employees and public
school teachers as well as
the state-federal Medicaid
health care program for
low-income and disabled
people.


So that's where
Republican Gov. Rick Scott
and the GOP-cpntrolled
Legislature have been -
looking for savings in the
face of a forecast shortfall
of $3.6 billion or more for
the budget year beginning
July 1.
That gap is about 5 per-
cent of the current $70.5
billion budget, which is
propped up with nearly-$3
billion in stimulus money.
that'll disappear when that
federal program expires
next year.
Layoffs, salary reduc-
tions and employee benefit
cuts are among the budget
balancing proposals wait-
ing for lawmakers when
the Legislature convenes
in regular session starting
Tuesday.
Scott has advanced the
most drastic measures.
He has proposed about $5
billion in spending cuts
- including $3.3 billion
for education and the
elimination of 8,645 state
jobs, or nearly 7 percent
of current positions, with
only about 2,000 of them
vacant
Public school officials
said his proposal to slash
spending by up to $703
per student, or 10 percent,
would result in laying off
thousands of teachers.

EEOC: Officials dispute allegations

criminated against because
of my disability, in viola-
tion of the Americans with
Disabilities in Employment
Act of 1990, as amended."
Spahalski said he never
attempted to get his medi-
cal clearance.
City Manager Wendell
Johnson disagreed with
Spahalski's interpretation.
"There is no commitment
anywhere about that not
a formal commitment,"
Johnson said of a promise
to rehire. "If there was an
implication of that, I think
it was taken out of context
by him. Certainly I, as the
city manager, and the chief
have every right to hire
whom we want based on
qualifications and all the
conditions."
"I've only had a few short
minutes to look over the
report and charges of dis-
crimination, and at this
point I find my first thought
is that this case really has
no merit."
Johnson said he is famil-
iar with Spahalski's history
from his retirement due to
a medical condition.
"I do not at this point
think this could be consid-
ered as a handicapped-qual-
ifying condition," Johnson
said of the EEOC discrimi-
nation complaint. "He had
cancer treatment."
Gilmore said she was
first made aware of the
Spahalski EEOC complaint
last week when she was
contacted by the Lake City
Reporter.
"I have the highest
respect for any of the prior
employees who worked
here and based on.the com-
plaint that he has lodged
against us, I'm just confi-
dent it will indicate that the
city acted appropriately and
did not act inappropriately
in any manner," she said.
"I believe the city or any
employer has the right to
hire any person that they
feel they should or don't
hire someone they don't
want to hire. It's just the
employer's right"


PATRICK SCOTT/Lake City Reporter
John Spahalski (left) and Lake City Police Chief Argatha
Gilmore at a function in November 2009.


Spahalski said in Sept.
2009, he was asked to attend
a meeting by police depart-
ment officials, who gave
him an option of signing
a resignation letter or ter-
mination papers. Spahalski
chose to resign.
Spahalski finished che-
motherapy in June 2010
and in early 2011 re-applied
for his job when the city
advertised four openings in
the police department.
Gilmore said she
attended a banquet, where
Spahalski was present,
when she started working
at the LCPD. Gilmore did
not say whether she told
Spahalski during the cel-
ebration that he could be
rehired.,
'"That was my first time
meeting him (Spahalski),"
she said, "Obviously things
change and needs change
within an organization.
He's lodged a complaint,
and that's his right to do
that. ... I don't believe that
we did anything inappropri-
ate."
Johnson said he recalled
that Gilmore, in a refer-
ence to Spahalski, saying
she could not consider him
for an interview because he
is not cleared to come back
to work.
'That's a requirement
any time employees go out.


They have to have a release
from the doctor to come
back to work," Johnson
said. "From' what I read,
he's saying he's been dis-
criminated against in accor-
dance with ADA standards
because we cannot give
him an interview or con-
sider him until he had a
medical clearance from a
doctor.
"I don't think there was
any intent by anyone, not
even a remote thought, of
violating any ADA stan-
dards. This, to me, is not an
ADA case. We'll be turning
it over to our labor attorney
to make sure. I feel sensi-
tive to his plea. I know he at
one time did a good job as
a police officer, subsequent
to his departure. Having to
retire medically was unfor-
tunate. But, if he may have
been cleared to come back
to work, and we have a
statement to that affect, it's
still at the discretion on the
part of city to make that
determination and that is
not in any form a manner
contrary to ADA or any
other standard."

ECONOMIC: Ideas will be included
Continued From Page 1A


Director Jim Poole as they
prepare a comprehensive
report for the department
Williams said the report
will encompass all sugges-
tions and ideas from the
board regarding economic
development.
"In discussing every-
thing to date involv-
ing economic develop-
ment and the Industrial
Development Authority,
it's sort of easy to con-
fuse things or forget
things," he said. "And so
Jim and I felt like the best
thing to do was to try to
capture all of these sug-
gestions and all of these
ideas that we've actually
been requested to do,
or directed to do by the
board and reduce them
to writing."
County Attorney Marlin
Feagle. recommended that
the IDA board com-
posed of the economic
development department
board members minus
its two commissioners
- consider having a sepa-
rate attorney other than
himself due to potential


conflicts arising with the
IDA board.
"Some of their ideas or
advisory recommenda-
tions need to be reviewed
by the county and it some-
times creates a conflict
for the county attorney to
be on both sides of that
recommendation," Feagle
said.
The board unanimous-
ly approved, with board
member Terry Dicks
absent, the possibility of
having a separate attorney
in Williams' and Poole's
report since there is no
business yet for the IDA
board to tend to.
It also discussed includ-
ing a confidentiality policy
in the report outlining how
the county will protect the
information of businesses
seeking to locate to the
area.
Suzanne Norris, board
member and IDA board
chairwoman, said such a
policy was necessary to
attract businesses to the
area.
"That company needs to
know we have a process


that their confidentiality is
protected," she said.
The board unanimously
approved drafting a letter
to the City of Lake City
asking it to send a utilities
representative to attend
the board's meetings.
Jeff Simmons, board
member, said two of the
county's three targeted
sites for economic devel-
opment its Rural Area
of .Critical Economic
Concern catalyst site on
East U.S. Highway 90 and
. its site bordering Interstate
10 between U.S. Highway
41 and U.S. Highway 441
- will need city utilities.
Norris also recom-
mended that Williams and
Poole include "best prac-
tices" in the report that
the IDA used to follow,
such as updating its mar-
keting plan and fostering
its previously formed part-
nerships at regional and
national levels.
Williams said he hopes
to have the plan ready by
the board's May meeting
before Poole retires June
30.

Obama's


decision


redefines


marriage

Put into perspective,
President Obama's
decision to no longer
defend the Defense
of Marriage Act
wasn't as bold a step as it first
seemed. Nonetheless, it does
represent progress for gays
and lesbians who want to get
married.
In a move hailed by gay-
rights advocates, Obama last
week ordered the Justice
Department to stop defending
the constitutionality of the 1996
law. The administration said it
believes that denying same-sex
couples the right to marry is
indefensible.
However, that doesn't mean
the government will stop
enforcing the law. In fact,
the Justice Department said
Monday that it would continue
to fight a lawsuit filed by a
California federal employee
who unsuccessfully tried to get
her same-sex partner added to
her health-insurance plan..
Government agencies have
been advised to enforce the
law until Congress repeals it.
As a result, Obama's decision
alone will likely have very little
impact on same-sex couples
who feel like second-class
citizens because they can't get
spousal benefits.
Signed by President Bill
Clinton, the law defines mar-
riage as only between a man
and a woman and bans the fed-
eral government from recogniz-
ing a same-sex marriage even
if it occurred in one of the five
states, or District of Columbia,
where it is legal.
DOMA denies federal ben-
efits granted to other married
couples, such as health insur-
ance, Social Security survivor
payments, and the right to file
joint tax returns.
The president's new posi-
tion is a reflection of his past
awkwardness on this issue. But
changing America's concept of
marriage will be harder. Gay
marriage has been rejected
in all 31 states where it has
appeared on a referendum bal-
lot Obama has taken another
step to change attitudes, but it
is a small step.

Governors hear Economics 101


The most important
public speech deliv-
ered last week in the
wind tunnel known
as Washington a
speech that could ultimately
benefit you and your family
- went unheard and unnoticed
throughout the heartland.
Mainly because it went
uncovered by the news media.
Including the nonstop cable
news, which was mainly wall-
papering us 24/7 with the
latest delusional ravings of a
far more famous newsmaker
. (Reader's choice: You may
insert either Moammar Gadhafi
or Charlie Sheen).
But not to worry. We've got
it covered here. And best of all,
this important message was
heard loud and clear by the
folks who matter most a tar-
get audience of 50 people who
share a common title: Governor.
They were all eyes and ears at
Saturday's National Governors
Association meeting as a nonpo-
litical, noncelebrity gave them
an empowering yet sobering
challenge:
If America is going to ever
again have a jobs-creating eco-
nomic recovery, said Harvard
Business School professor
Michael Porter, it will be
because of the leadership of
the nation's governors in their
states not the leadership that
comes from inside the Oval
Office or beneath the Capitol
dome.
"I hope things go better in
Washington," said Porter. "I
hope our federal government
is more successful in tackling
some of the issues it has to
tackle. But what is really going
to determine the success of
America in restoring competi-
tiveness is actually what all of
you do."
What the governors are now-
doing back home is a budget-
cutting equivalent of root canal


Martin Schram

surgery. The governors 29
Republicans, 20 Democrats and
one Independent (Gov. Lincoln
Chaffee of Rhode Island) are
agonizing over how to balance
their budget now that vanished
revenues left them only painful
choices. It's not just Republicans
such as Wisconsin's Republican
Gov. Scott Walker and Ohio's
Gov. John Kasich who are
cutting teacher pensions and
seeking to end their union
negotiating rights. Democrats
including New York's Gov.
Andrew Cuomo and California's
Gov. Jerry Brown are proposing
cuts so drastic they'd have been
labeled right-wing stuff back
when their fathers, Mario and
Pat, were governors (or dur-
ing Jerry's first gubernatorial
reign).
Big budget cuts alone won't
work; they must be part of
an overall strategy to make a
state's key industries or sectors
competitive and productive,
Porter said. "When you are
doing difficult short-term things
- particularly when you are
cutting it's very important
to be doing long-term things at
the same time." Build an infra-
structure for your state's lead-
ing economic sectors, he added.
Porter's Harvard Institute for
Strategy and Competitiveness
has analyzed the 50 state econo-
mies and will work with each
governor to develop an econom-
ic strategy for their state.
Productivity determines
wages, jobs and "sets standard
for whether your particular
state is going to succeed,"


Porter said. "If.you are produc-
tive you can be prosperous. If
not, you can't."
So the governors who are
slashing education spend-
ing heard Porter's warning
that infrastructure must be
enhanced and education is
the key to their state's future
prosperity: "Education is funda-
mental. Without the talent pool,
without the skill base, we just
can't be productive."
Listening to Porter with
Washington-warped ears, you
begin to try to pigeonhole his
politics. Certainly conserva-
tive, you start thinking when
he talks about competitive-
ness and productivity. Then
he does his infrastructure and
education thing and you begin
thinking he's rather progres-
sive. One reason his themes
seem familiar is President
Barack Obama is now sound-
ing the same refrains. (Obama
just renamed his Economic
Recovery Advisory Board the
President's Council'on Jobs
and Competitiveness. And, in
January, Obama declared: "We
can out-compete any other
nation on Earth.")
The 50 governors may
not realize it yet and
Washington's donkeys, ele-
phants and Tea Party pretend-
ers and lobbyists certainly don't
- but when it comes to ecp-
nomic recovery, we have moved
into a no-labels era.
But Professor Porter gets it.
"Improving economic strategy
is not partisan," he told the gov-
ernors. "It's about building the
prosperity of everybody." The
gains will be greater for lower-
and middle-income people, than
for those at the top, he said.
'There is no ideology here.
The iron law of competitiveness
- it's just a fact."

OTHER OPINION


Hummingbird sets its eyes on you


he Pentagon asked
the defense indus-
try's wizards to come
up with tiny surveil-
lance drones that
mimicked the natural world.
Five years and $4 million
later, according to the Associated
Press, a California company
called AeroVironment has'
developed the hummingbird spy
plane.
One would have thought a
fake pigeon would have been a
better choice. Hummingbirds
attract attention. Pikeons are
anonymous. Disguise a drone as
a pigeon and you can slip it into
any city in the world flocks of
drones, for that matter.
But the hummingbird has


skills that.pigeons do not. It can
hover, take off vertically and fly
backward. And it's tiny. AP says
the hummingbird drone, arned
with video and audio equipment,
has a 6-1/2-inch wingspan and
weighs less than an AA battery.
The U.S. military already uses
a small drone in Afghanistan,
the 4-pound, hand-launched
Raven. But the search is under
way for even smaller drones
- really small drones.
AP says Lockheed Martin
has developed a fake maple-tree
seed loaded with sensors that
weighs .07 ounces. Left unsaid
is whether the drone can be par-
tially split to make a comically
upturned stick-on nose.
The Pentagon is also looking


at equipping insects real ones
- with cameras or sensors and
dispatching them on remote-
controlled espionage missions.
Among the possible uses of
birdlike drones are said to be
searching buildings in urban
combat, scouting the debris for
survivors after an earthquake
and detecting hazardous-chemi-
cal leaks. But we know what
they're really for snooping.
That cute little birdie on the
bedroom windowsill might be on
a mission from a peeping Tom.
Soon there may be only
one way to look at the activity
in your backyard bird feeder
- with suspicion.

Facing


squad


of young


readers


O n a cold, slick
morning that
promised to bring
yet another snow-
fall to Redkey,
Ind., I put on most of what
I'd packed in my suitcase and
skated off to face a seriously
cute firing squad otherwise
known as the children of
Redkey Elementary.
Months ago, when their prin-
cipal, Tomas Jerles, invited me
Ato come talk to students about
writing, e had no idea Mother
Nature would shut down his
school for three days before
my arrival.
It reopened the day of my
visit on a three-hour delay
schedule that gave roads
a chance to thaw and me a
chance to wake up.
Good thing on both counts.
Jerles told me that for
several weeks, he had been
visiting classrooms to read my
columns aloud so his students
would be familiar with my
work.
And boy, were they ever. If
I've learned one thing about
kids, it's this: They don't miss
much. You have to be careful
what you write around them
because they will take you at
your word.
For some reason, they took a
special interest in two columns:
One about how in third grade,
on the merry-go-round, when
my friend grabbed my neck to
avoid being flung off, I bit her
on the nose to save myself.
And another in which I
described how my newborn
grandson, Randy, once spit up
on me in such a way it soaked
through my underwear.
In 11 classes, kindergarten
through fifth grade, hands shot
up so fast it made me dizzy.
There wasn't enough time to
cover everything, so one of the
teachers e-mailed later with
follow-up questions. Here are a
few from the third-graders:
From Courtney: "Do you
really hate shopping?"
Yes, Courtney, I really do. I'd
rather be spit up on than shop.
From Dylan: "Did Randy's
puke really soak your under-
wear?"
OK, "soak" may have over-
stated it a bit,-but he got me
pretty good.
From Sarah: "Have you
talked to (the merry-go-round
friend) since third grade?"
Yes, but not in a while. Do
you think I should call her?
From Hallie: "I was con-
cerned about the friend who
flew off the merry-go-round.
Was she OK?"
Yes, fortunately for both of
us, she and her nose were fine.
From Chelsey: "How is your
little Randy doing?"
Thanks for asking, Chelsey.
He's doing beautifully, and he
hardly ever spits up anymore.
That evening, in the Redkey
gym, I spoke to parents and
teachers and some longtime
readers on what reading and
writing have meant in my life
and in the lives of those I love.
We read and write for two
reasons, I said: To know and
to be known. We need to read
to our children and let them
read to us. We need to help
them find their voices through
writing.
And all across the gym, I
saw faces smiling in agree-
ment.

it also donated more than 100
books to the school for class-
room libraries."
"Kiwanis is about the chil-
dren and what we can do to
improve the lives of the chil-
dren in Columbia County," he
said. "What better way to do-
that than donate books and help
children read?"
It's always great to have mem-
bers of the community show
support and participation at


Summers and any elementary
school, said Brandi Keen, third-
grade teacher and event coor-
dinator.
The annual event is a signifi-
cant day in the eyes of the stu-
dents, she said.
"It's an important day to honor
a great author, Dr. Seuss," Brandi
Keen said. "It gives kids a day to
say, This is what we did today."'
The donation was also a won-
derful part of the day, she said.


The school appreciates Kiwanis
for its support.
"We can always use books,"
she said. 'Teachers always like
things to put in their libraries."
It's definitely a good thing
for members of the community
to interact with students, Kyle
Keen said. The club enjoyed
paying homage to Dr. Seuss
once again.
"I hope (students) get to
see that people out in the com-


munity do care about them and
want them to succeed in life and
help them with anything they --
can," he said.
Last year Brandi Keen was
teacher of the year, and she
challenged community groups
to adopt a school to read to dur-
ing the event, Kyle Keen said.
He issued that same challenge
to organizations for next year.
"It's well worth the time, and,
the kids love it," he said.

Dr. Peter Gott


Treatments

for tinnitus,

aka ringing

of the ears

D EAR DR.
GOIT: Are
there any new
developments
in the treat-
ment of tinnitus that really
work? My wife swears by
many of your remedies.
Your articles are the only
reason we get a printed
newspaper.
DEAR READER:
Tinnitus (noise or ringing
in one or both ears) is not a
disease but a symptom that
points to something wrong
in the auditory system. The
cause can be something
as simple as wax blocking
the ear canal, the result
of a thyroid abnormality,
Meniere's disease, infec-
tion, noise-induced hearing
loss, aneurysm or brain
tumor and more.
My guess is that because
you or a family member
has tinnitus, your doctor
has referred you to an
otolaryngologist (ear-nose-
and-throat specialist) or an
audiologist and an exami-
nation has been performed.
This first step would likely
rule out simple wax impac-
tion. A series of specialized
tests can help determine
where the problem origi-
nated. An auditory brain
response to test hearing
nerves and brain pathways
or a CT or MRI to rule out
tumor on a nerve may be
ordered.
A physician might sug-
gest hearing aids to control
outside sound levels; wear-
able sound generators that
fit in the ear to generate
pleasant sounds or white
noise to mask the tinnitus;
acoustic nerve stimulation
to reduce or eliminate the
tinnitus; cochlear implants
that can bypass the dam-
aged area of the inner ear
but send electrical signals
to stimulate the auditory
nerve; biofeedback; and
more.
A study performed in
Brazil some six years ago
tested the drug acampro-
sate (Campral), currently
used for the control of alco-
holism, in tinnitus suffer-
ers. It showed greater than
86 percent relief of symp-
toms. Studies remain ongo-
ing in the United States for
this use.
Keep in mind that some
antidepressants and other
medications such as aspirin
might be the sole culprit.
Speak with your physician
regarding any prescrip-
tions, over-the-counters
and herbal supplements
you might be on. Perhaps
a simple switch to another
product might be just
what is needed. There are
numerous herbal supple-
ments and other products
available without prescrip-
tion to combat tinnitus;
however, before beginning
any of them, consult with
your doctor to determine
whether they are right tor
you.

Gene therapy raises hope for AIDS cure


By MARILYNN MARCHIONE
AP Medical Writer
n a bold new
approach ultimately
aimed at trying to
cure AIDS, scien-
tists used genetic
engineering in six patients
to develop blood cells
that are resistant to HIV,
the virus that causes the
disease.
It's far too early to know
if this scientific first will
prove to be a cure, or
even a new treatment. The
research was only meant
to show that, so far, it
seems feasible and safe.
The concept was based
on the astonishing case
of an AIDS patient who
seems to be cured after
getting blood cells from
a donor with natural
immunity to HIV nearly
four years ago in Berlin.
Researchers are seeking
a more practical wayr to
achieve similar immunity
using patients' own blood
cells.
The results announced
Monday at a conference
in Boston left experts cau-
tiously excited.
"For the first time, peo-
ple are beginning to think
about a cure" as a real
possibility, said Dr. John
Zaia, head of the govern-
ment panel that oversees
gene therapy experimeAts.
Even if the new approach

the studies.


doesn't get rid of HIV
completely, it may repair
patients' immune systems
enough that they can con-
trol the virus and not need
AIDS medicines "what
is called a functional
cure," he said.
Carl Dieffenbach, AIDS
chief atthe National
Institute of Allergy and
Infectious Diseases,
agreed.

"We're hopeful that this
is sufficient to give the
level of immune reconsti-

seen with the patient from
Germany," he said. -
This is the first time
researchers have perma-
nently deleted a human
gene and infused the
altered cells back into
patients. Other gene
therapy attempts tried to


add a gene or muffle the
activity of one, and have
not worked against HIV.
The virus can damage
the immune system for
years before people devel-
op symptoms and are said
to have AIDS acquired

IF How STORY TIME PROVED THAT MAKING

HOUSE CALLS AREN'T FABLES AFTER ALL.

Bill always had a fondness for reading bedtime stories to his daughter.
As a Haven Hospice patient, he wanted to be home with his family.
So when it became too difficult to visit his doctor, our doctors made
house calls to Bill -just not during story time so Bill could stay
right where he wanted to be, home.

Not what you'd expect from hospice care? Haven is different. At Haven,
we believe that Hospice is about living, not dying. We're Haven Hospice.
The stories of life live here. To learn more, visit havenstories.com.

We're here to help, 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
Haven Hospice has been honored with the Circle Of Life Award

through a protein recep-
tor, or "docking station,"
called CCR5.
Some people (about 1
percent of whites; fewer
of minorities) lack both
copies of the CCR5 gene
and are naturally resistant
to HIV. One such person
donated blood stem cells
in 2007 to an American
man living in Berlin who
had leukemia and HIV.
The cell transplant
appears to have cured
both problems, but finding
such donors for everyone
with HIV is impossible,
and transplants are medi-
cally risky.
So scientists wondered:
Could a patient's own cells
be used to knock out the
CCR5 gene and create
resistance to HIV?
A California biotechnol-
ogy company, Sangamo
BioSciences Inc., makes
a treatment that can cut
DNA at precise locations
and permanently "edit
out" a gene.
Dr. Jacob Lalezari,
director of Quest
Clinical Research of San
Francisco, led the first test
of this with the company
and colleagues at the
University of California
in San Francisco and Los
Angeles.
He warned that it would
be "way overstated" to
suggest that the results so
far are a possible cure.

first district match of the sea-
son against Vanguard High,
3-4, at Jonesville Tennis
Complex in Gainesville.

tinued to knock off their
opponents with the top-two
seeds as Chrissie Reichert
and Susy Romero won their
matches 8-3 and 8-1, respec-
tively.
Kelsey Mercer, Jessie
Bates and Heather Benson
each fell in their single's
matches.
Reichert and Romero
teamed for doubles and
came away with a shutout,


8-0, victory.
Columbia wasn't able to
pull out the second doubles'
match, however, as Mercer
and Taylor Owens fell in a
hard-fought match, 7-9.
"No. 2 doubles fought
really hard," head coach
Tabatha McMahon said.
"Benson's loss doesn't
reflect on her play as she
went up against Stephanie
Cortez, who was No. 3 at
districts last year."
The Lady Tigers return
to court at Ridgeview on

Time running out for NFL


By HOWARD FENDRICH
Associated Press

WASHINGTON NFL
owners ended their special
labor meeting Wednesday
night without taking any
action, just 30 hours before
the collective bargaining
agreement with the players
expires.
'I'm going home,"
Patriots owner Robert Kraft
said when asked if he would
attend further mediation
sessions.
Most of the owners left a
suburban Washington hotel
Wednesday night after a'
three-hour meeting, cancel-
ing another session sched-
uled for'Thursday..


The owners are not
required to take a lockout
vote. That authority has
been given to the NFL's
labor committee, which
met with the union in
mediated talks earlier
Wednesday.
NFL spokesman Greg
Aiello said more mediation
sessions were expected.
"The committee has not
made any decision as to
what will happen upon expi-
ration of the current agree-
ment if we don't have a new
one by tomorrow night,"
Aiello said.
After the labor committee
finished its own meeting an
hour later, Cowboys owner
Jerry Jones echoed Kraft-


"We can't comment, and
even more so we're cer-
tainly still involved, in our
dialogue, and so there is
no comment," Jones said.
Asked if he would take part
in more mediation, Jones
added: "No, I'm going back
to Dallas."
Indianapolis Colts owner
Jimmy Irsay said the own-
ers welcomed the opportu-
nity to be updated on nego-
tiations, but there was little
reason for them to remain
in Washington as the dead-
line approaches.
"We had the chance to
ask questions, but we didn't
break with a lockout vote
or anything like that," Irsay
said.

play with obviously the best
ever, and the best-ever col-
lege football player prob-
ably, and a great musician.
I'm the runt of the group."
Taylor and Tebow might
have time for a lot of golf
this spring, because an
NFL work stoppage looms
when the collective bargain-
ing agreement expires at
midnight Eastern Thursday
night.
"I fully expect to be
locked out," Taylor said.
'This thing could go until
September or October. We
have no idea."
Tebow said he has made
plans to work out with


Denver Broncos teammates
if there's a stoppage.
"I believe we'll get togeth-
er, more with the ones I'll
have to be in good timing
with from the center to
some of the running backs
and the receivers," Tebow
said. "I don't have any idea
what's going to happen, and
I don't think many people
do. Either way, I'll just go
about my business and
keep working."
As part of his offsea-
son work, Tebow said he
spent time recently with
new Denver coach John
Fox. They first met a year
ago, when Tebow was a top


prospect out of Florida and
Fox coached the Carolina
Panthers.
"He's great," Tebow said.
"I had a great relationship
with him last year in the
whole recruiting process.
We had several dinners
together when he was at
Carolina."
Last week, Fox named
veteran Kyle Orton his
starting quarterback, mean-
ing Tebow will be No. 2 on
the depth chart whenever
training camp begins.
"That's fine," Tebow said.
"It doesn't matter until you
go out and start competing.
That's my attitude."

Tiger Woods steps out of the brush after playing a ball on
the 19th hole while playing Thomas Bjorn during the first
round of the Match Play Championship golf tournament
Feb. 23 in Marana, Ariz.

Nicklaus says


Woods' victory


slump will end


By STEVEN WINE
Associated Press

PALM BEACH
GARDENS Jack
Nicklaus doubts his lead
in career Grand Slam titles
will last -- he figures it's
just a'matter of time before
Tiger Woods' slump ends.
Woods hasn't won a tour-
nament since he became
immersed in a sex scandal
in November 2009, and he's
stalled at 14 major titles, four
shy of Nicklaus' record.
"I still think he'll break
my record," Nicklaus said
Wednesday before play-
ing a round in the Honda
Classic pro-am. "I'm sur-
prised that he has not
bounced back by now.
He's got such a great work
ethic. He's so determined
to,what he wants,to do."
Nicklaus said -he hasn't
talked to Woods since last
June, and that conversa-'
tion was brief.
"He got maybe off the
track, but I think he's really
a principled kid," Nicklaus
said. "Did he have some


wayward ... ? Yes. But are
we all perfect? No."
Woods isn't playing
Honda, a tournament he
has skipped every year
since 1993. Last week, he
was eliminated in the first
round of the Match Play
Championship, and he has
failed to crack the top 20
in his three tournaments
this year.
Nicklaus recalled the
worst slump of his career
in 1979-80. He missed the
cut in an event just before
the U.S, Open, then redis-
covered his winning touch
at Baltusrol.
"I shot 63 the first round
and missed a little putt on
the lasthole for 62," Nicklaus
recalled. "All of a sudden I
said, 'Hey, you know, maybe
this is my time to start doing
itthe, right vay again.' And
all of a sudden your mind
turns around.
"You just keep working at
it and you keep doing things,
and all of a sudden, some-
thing happens that kicks in.
And I think thats what will
happen with Tiger."

Stronger European



feel at Honda Classic


By STEVEN WINE
Associated Press

PALM BEACH
GARDENS Lee
Westwood has seen lots of
sand this year, and not just
in bunkers.
-Tournament travel took
the world's No. 2-ranked
player to desert oases in
Abu Dhabi, Doha, Dubai
and Arizona. The land-
scape's a little more lush
this week in Florida, where
Westwood will compete in
the Honda Classic begin-
ning Thursday.
And if his itinerary
sounds exhausting, well,
Westwood said it is.
"If you don't do it much,
then the travel obviously
can get to you, the jet lag,"
the Englishman said. "But
you get used to it. I've been
doing it for 18 years now,
traveling through eight
time zones. It's just some-
thing you learn to get on
with and contend with: play-
ing tired."
Globe-trotting is a chal-
lenge for all golfers, and
especially top Europeans
like Westwood who divide


their time between PGA
Tour events and tourna-
ments closer to home.
These days, top
Europeans are handling
the jet lag just fine. For
the first time since 1992,
Europe occupies the first
four world ranking spots,
with Martin Kaymer of
Germany the new No. 1,
England's Luke Donald No.
3 and Graeme McDowell
of Northern Ireland ranked
No. 4.
"It's a reflection of
European golf at the
moment," Westwood said.
"It's very strong. You've got
established players play-
ing well, and young players
coming through. We have
some great players right
now not afraid to play well
all over the world."
An international flavor
is nothing new for the
Honda Classic. The past
four winners have been
Donald, Camilo Villegas
of Colombia, Y.E. Yang of
South Korea, Ernie Els of
South Africa.
All are back this week,
along with eight other
former champions. That


includes 1994 winner Nick
Price of South Africa, play-
ing in his first PGA Tour
event since 2008.
Skipping the event is
Woods, who at No. 5 has
slipped to his lowest rank-
ing in nearly 14 years. He
'has played Honda only once
- in 1993, when he missed
the cut.
Also absent is Kaymer,
who officially took over No.
1 this week. He lost Sunday
to Donald in the final of the
Match Play Championship
- the second straight year
for an all-European final.
Westwood, who replaced
Woods atop the rankings
in October, has a chance to
regain No. 1 this week. Such
a close race was unheard
of before Woods' slump
created an opportunity for
Westwood and the other
top Europeans to jumble
the top of the rankings.
"It is more volatile,"
Donald said. "That makes
it fun for us players, and it
makes it fun for the fans,
too. I think when Tiger was
so dominant, mathemati-
cally it was almost impos-
sible for anyone to catch


him, unless they won near-
ly every tournament they
played in.
"But now it's open, and I
think that's great for golf.
Obviously, Europe is enjoy-
ing an extremely purple
patch right now, and we
are riding the wave very
highly."
The wave surfaced sud-
denly. Only a year ago,
Americans held the world's
top three rankings.
At least one observer is
confident they'll be on top
again soon.
"It goes back and forth,"
Jack Nicklaus said. "When
guys get down, they say all
of a sudden, 'We have to
kick ourselves in the rear
end, and we have to go
play.' And I think they will."
Maybe even this week.
Whoever wins will have
to contend with a difficult
course made more so by
winds of 15 to 20 mph fore-
cast for all four days, with
thunderstorms possible
Sunday.

DEAR ABBY


Cousin's dyspeptic wife

spoils family festivals


DEAR ABBY: Every
year for the last six years, I
have hosted a family gather-
ing at my home. Each and
every year, my cousin's wife
"Jodie" does everything
possible to ensure that we
all know she's upset about
something. Shell sit on
my couch as far removed
from the family as possible,
grumbling under her breath
to her husband. Jodie never
says more than four words
to me (the hostess) the en-
tire time none of which
are "thank you" then she
feigns food poisoning! (No
one else gets sick.)
This has been going on
longer than the six years I
have hosted this event. My
question is, would it be tact-
less of me to ask my cousin
to leave his wife home next
year? I am not the only fam-
ily member who is disgust-
ed with Jodie's behavior.
I think we'd all have a bet-
ter time if she wasn't there.
Would that be wrong of me?
- SICK OF CODDLING
HER IN ILLINOIS
DEAR SICK: For a per-
son to repeatedly act the
way you have described is
not normal behavior. Your
cousin's wife may suffer
from some significant emo-
tional problems. Is no one
in your family close enough
to your cousin to express


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com
concern about it?
While it would, indeed,
be tactless to tell him to
leave his wife home instead
of bringing her to a fam-
ily gathering, it might be
less so to mention gently
that you have noticed she
doesn't enjoy herself when
she visits and that her at-
tendance isn't compulsory.
Then listen to what he has
to say because it may be en-
lightening.
DEAR ABBY: My sister
"Blanche" has always de-
pended on men to support
her. She was married brief-
ly, and after her divorce
started going from one man
to another. I can't count how
many relationships she has
been in. Her children are
grown, but when they were
young they had to endure
their mother's lifestyle.
Blanche has just moved
in with another man. She's
45, and has no job or money,
but has gotten good at sell-
ing her pity story. Unfortu-
nately, her new boyfriend,


"Stanley," is an old friend of
mine. Although we haven't
been in contact for years,
I'm concerned about his
dating my sister. He's going
through some hard times
due to the loss of a family
member. Blanche homed in
on this and moved in with
him to "help him grieve."
Abby, I know the dam-
age my sister can cause. It
never turns out pretty. She
uses people to get what she
wants, then if it turns sour,
she becomes a stalker. She.
has refused my recom-
mendations for counsel-
Sing. I feel obligated to let
Stanley's family know about
Blanche's history. She's
trying to prevent me from
contacting him because
she doesn't want her past
revealed. What do you sug-
gest? FEARFUL SIS IN
MISSOURI
DEAR FEARFUL SIS:
I strongly recommend that
rather than telling Stanley's
family your sister's history,
you tell Stanley directly.
To do otherwise would be
interpreted as an under-
handed attempt to break up
his romance, would not be
appreciated, and could only
bring them closer.

P.O. Box 69440, Los
Angeles, CA 90069.

you have. The way to make

especially if your concern
involves a friend, relative or
neighbor. ****
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Too much
pressure will lead to trouble.
Make sure you have a clear
picture of what's going on
before you take sides. Back
away from a personal situ-
ation and put more effort
into your work. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Emotional de-
ception is apparent Private
affairs must be kept that
way or you will be caught in
the middle of a melodrama.
You can help a friend but
don't take on burdens that
aren't yours. Protect your
