resisted, saying he had
not received a court order.
When Terry Marques,
director of the Humane
Society wvho wras at the
scene, presented the order,'
.Haake relented. .


"It was volatile," said
.Terry Marques, director
of the Humane Society, of
the strained atmosphere.
The Society used three
trucks and, accompanied
by sheriffs in two patrol
cars, took the animals
from Skuhnkie Acres.
"I wasn't too nice to
him," Haake admitted
of his confrontation with
Marques. "I called him a
few nimes. I told him he
ought to be ashamed of
himself.
"WIhat they're going to
. do with them is they're
going to murder them."
According to Marques,
the -order was issued after
complaints dating back
more than a year resulted
in a March 22 court hear-
ing. Complaints against
Skunkie Acres have been
multiplying, with neigh-
bors upset about several
problems.


However, the 'order
focused on -signed affida-
,vits about the excessive
noise and the~ dogs roam-
ing through the area,
Marques said. There were-
four civil citations "based
on seven or eight offenses,
and three or four of those
were from the same com-
plaintant," he said.
Haak~e pledged to pursue
this further, trying to get a
motion from the court to
set the order aside. He
added he had been mis-
informed about the court
appearance date, having
been told it was March 24 ,
and stating he had never
been told of a change.
Marques countered
'that when the date was
changed, p everyone
involved was notified, .

"Further, we will work
together with our Sheriff's
and Chiefs to position the
assets that are available to
the region to better curtail
this problem in our area
and the State of Florida."
Hunter said the creation
of the statewide Regional
Drug Strike Forces will
allow every (law enforce-


ment) agency to access
resources and share intel-
ligence on a much larger
scale. This will greatly ben-
elit rural agencies that may
not have had the assets
and resources available to
them in the past to combat
the unlawful prescription
trade.
The statewide and
regional task forces will
work in conjunction with
Attorney General Pam
Bondi's Office of Statewide
Prosecution and local state
attorneys, state and federal
law enforcement, state reg-
ulatory agencies and phar-
maceutical distributors.

expanding the political divide

sophisticated way to approach
this situation is to posit,
what is driving the religious
resurgence?
The correct answer is, many
things are driving it, including
a desire to go back to "the
way things were," fear of an
increasingly unstable economy,
and world at large. So is the
fact that economic prosperity
is increasingly unattainable
for people without enough
education to succeed in an

Gov. Sarah Palin and the

A~backlash? That's
the thesis of Richard Florida,
director of the Martin
Prosperity Institute at the
University of Toronto. On The
Atlantic online, Florida has
posted an article agglomerating
data, mostly from a recent
Gallup prosperity survey, and
comes to the conclusion that
lack of education, skin color
(white, not black or brown),
religiosity and blue collar wages
are driving the conservative
resurgence in Ame3rica today.

over teachers, firefighters,
police officers and anyone
who chooses' to serve
the people of this state,"
said Florida AFL-CIO
President Mike Williams.,
"'Today's votes will only
increase our struggle."
The bill is also not as
rigid as Scott's original
proposal that would have
required all public employ-
ees contribute 5 percent of
their earnings into their
retirement.
The Democratic leader
in the House, Rep. Ron
Saunders of Key West, said
requiring state employeeS
to pay into their retire-
ment was nothing short
of an income tax on state
workers.
The contribution
requirements would help
lawmakers overcome a
budget deficit of $3.75 bil-
lion, effectively reducing
the wages of teachers,
state workers and many
local government employ-
ees including police and
firefighters. A 3 percent
contribution rate would
save about $1 billion.
The Senate also agreed
to delay for five years the
repeal of a program that
lets retirement-eligible
employees continue work-
ing, collecting both a salary
and retirement benefits.


Legislators and statewide
elected officials, the gov-
ernor and cabinet, would
pay an additional percent-
age point to their earn-
ings, capped at 7 percent.
"I wish we didn't have
to go there, but I think it's
the responsible thing to
do when you look at the
whole broad set of issues,"
Senate budget chief JD
Alexander, R-Lake Wales,
said.
The Senate vote was
taken while the union
workers looked on. They
swarmed across the
Capitol during the day,
some with signs that read
"Pink Slip Rick,"~ in their
disapproval of new Gov.
Rick Scott. Employee
unions have opposed the
pension changes, claiming
Fldrida's retirement sys-
tem is one of the nation's
strongest.

TALLAHASSEE -
Teachers, firefighters,
police and state employ-
ees may soon be contrib-
uting to their pensions
for the fist time under a
bill passed Thursday by
Florida lawmakers amid
union opposition.
The measure passed
mostly along party line
in the House on a 78-
39 vote and 26-13 in the
Senate where scores of
disgruntled union work-
ers watched from the gal-
lery. The bill (SB 2100)
was amended to conform
to the House bill and now
goes to conference.
In the Senate, four
Republicans voted against
it while two South Florida
Democrats, Sens. Nan
Rich of Weston and Jeremy
Ring of Margate, voted for
the bill.
The legislation would
establish a tiered-system
requiring higher paid
employees to put a larger
percentage of their earn-
ings into their retirement.
The bill (SB 2100) calls
for contributions of 2 per-
cent for the first $25,000
of pay, 4 percent for the
next $25,000 and 6 per-
cent for anything more.

Defender RobertFriedman
offered no additional evi-
dence but asked the court
to impose a life sentence,
saying Hilton couldn't
"conform his conduct to
the requirements of the
law."
Hilton suffers from
schizoaffective disorder,
Friedman said, which is
a combination of schizo-
phrenia symptoms, such
as delusions, and mood-
disorder symptoms, usu-
ally mania or depression
or both,
.Friedman also listed a
string of circumstances as
mitigating factors against
a death sentence, include
ing Hilton's emotion-
ally abusive upbringing,
his history of substance
abuse, mental defects and
brain injuries, growing up
in poverty, and not having
ever known his mother,
State Attorney Willie
M~eggs, however, said he
did not ask lightly for the
death sentence.
"If ever a case before the
judicial system deserved a
death sentence, it is this
case," he said. For exam-
ple, Meggs said Hilton
had held Dunlap captive


and she likely knew of her
impending death.
Hankinson also heard
from Dunlap's friends and
family.
Emma Blunt, Dunlap's
aunt, described her as
trusting and compassion-
ate. When Blunt told her
that she didn't like Dunlap
walking in the woods by
herself, Dunlap assured
hei-no one would harm
her.
The fact that she
thought she was safe "just
adds to the horror of this,"
Blupt said.
Laura Walker, Dunlap's
best friend, called. her a
sister, a counselor and a
shoulder to cry on. Duillap,
who taught Sunday school,
was happiest talking about
her faith, Walker added.
. I miss my friend; I took
it for granted that she
would always be here,"
Walker said. I know
Cheryl is home, but I will
never, ever be the same
again."
At the end of the hear-
ing; -Hilton dressed in
a blue prison uniform and
long-sleeved white under-
shirt shook Friedman's
hand, then was escorted
from the courtroom by
deputies. He returns to
court April 21 for final
sentencing.

TALLAHASSEE -

IB ~

Page Editor: C.J. Risak, 754-0427


The pension plan contri-
butions and spending cuts
are in response to a $3.75
billion gap between antici-
pated state revenues and
the growing cost of high-
priority to critical spending
needs.
The biggest part of that
gap comes from nearly $3
billion in stimulus money
included in the current
budget that won't be avail-
able in the next fiscal year,
which begins July 1, as the
federal program expires.
.The Senate voted 33-
6 for its appropriations
bill (SB 2000) with all
Republicans in favor and
Democrats almost evenly
split. Some senators from
both parties who voted for
the bill, though, said they
objected to. its harsh treat-
ment of public employees
and hoped that it will be
eased during coming nego-
tiations to resolve differ-
ences between the House
and Senate.
Those talks are expected
to begin next week.
Senate Democratic
Leader Nan Rich of Weston
said she couldn't vote for
her chamber's budget
because her colleagues
decided "to cause unneces-
sary pain to a lot of vulner-
able people in our state."
SRich said Republicans
have ignored other options
for balancing the budget
such as a bill she's filed that
would close a corporate tax
loophole that benefis out-
of-state companies.
College and university
tuition would go up by 5
percent in the House bill
and 8. percent in the Senate
plan. Hospitals and nurs-
`ing homes would be paid
less for Medicaid patients
~as part of a $1 billion cut in


:the state-federal program
for low-income and dis-
abled people.
The Senate budget also
would reduce spending for
transplant recipients and
other "medically. needy"
patients with catastrophic
illness but who lack suf-
ficient insurance coverage.
As of next April it would
stop covering prescription
drugs, transportation, hear-
ing aids and glasses, but it
would continue paying doc-
tor bills.
About $1 billion would
come out of public schools
in each budget, but school
districts would get some
of that money back due
to savings they'll have due
to their employees' retire-
ment contributions.
"This education budget,
given all circumstances and
the factors, is level funding
in disastrous times," said
Sen. David Simmons, R-
Maitland. -
Environmental spending
including laid purchases
arid` Everglades restora- ~
tion also would be slashed.
Both plans would cut pris-
on spending by privatizing
correctional facilities -- in
an 18-county area of South
Florida in the Senate bill
but just in Browvard and
Miami-Dade counties in the
House version.
The. Senate's $69.8 bil-
lion appropriations bill is
$3.3 billion higher than
the House measure, but
most of that gap is due to
accounting differences.
Two key differences are
that the Senate brings the .
state's five water manage-
merit districts into the state
budget for the first time and
continues to include county
court clerks. The House
plan includes neither.

TALLAHASSEE -
Virtually no sector of state
government, from public
schools to programs for the
sick and disabled, is spared
from the budget axe in a
nearly $70 billion spending
bill passed Thursday by the
Florida Senate.
The House was set to
vote later Thursday on its
version of Florida's budget.
GOP lawmakers who
control both chambers are
holding fim to their no-
new-taxes commitment,
with austere'appropriations
bills that slash almost $4
billion in spending.
Democrats argued that
House and Senate bills
alike are balanced on the
backs of public emplot-
ees, in effect imposing an
income tax on them.
Both chambers would
dock the pay checks of
teachers, state workers
and many local employees
include police and firefight-
ers to reduce state, city and
county government contri-
btitions to their retirement;
plan by up to $1.1 billion.
Senate Budget
Committee Chairman JD
Alexander, R-Lake Wales,
acknowledged state
employees are being asked
to sacrifice again after going
without pay raises for five
years, but he said things
are even worse in Florida's
recession-battered private
sector.
"In ur- district virtually
every business that I know
of has done layoffs, reduc-
tions. Many businesses
have clBosed," Alexander
said. "In my world folks
can't afford a lot of addi-
tional tax burden.'' ,I -

Obamna has work to do in state


compared to 51 percent
who do not. .
The'. poll, which has~a
margin of error of plus
or minus 2.9 percentage
points, also shows any
unnamed Republican chal-
lenger would be in a dead
heat with the president.
But there was a bit of
a silver lining for Obama,
pollster Peter Brown
noted.
"Despite questions
about his policies, the
president is personally
popular with Floridians,"
Brown said, noting that 70
percent responded they


like Obama personally,
a figure that included 30`
percent who disagree with
Obama's policies. Obama
carried Florida in 2008 by
nearly 250,000 votes over
Republican Jphit McCain1.
However, voters were
split on whether they
approved of .Obama's han-:
dling of the situation in
Libya, with 46 percent each
in support and opposed.
Obama has announced
his intention to seek re-elec,
tion. Several Republicans'
are considering a run,
including Mississippi Gov;
Haley Barbour.

TALLAHASSEE -
President Barack Obama
has some work to do with
Florida voters if he hopes
to win the state's 29 elec-
toral votes next year, a
Quinnipiac University poll
released Thursday shows. -
Slightly more than half
of registered voters said
they disapprove of the job
Obama is doing and that
he doesn't deserve a sec-
ond~term, according to a
random telephone survey
of 1,499 registered voters
March 29 to April 4.
While 52 percent of
Florida voters disap-
prove of Obama's job
performance, 44 percent
approve, the poll found.
Only 42 percent favor

TALLAHASSEE -
Legislation that would
deregulate 14 businesses,
professions and occupla-
tions ranging from ijnte-
'rior ~design to auto repair
cleared the~ Republican-
controlled Florida House
on Thursday. -
The bill (HB 5005)
passed on a party line 77-
38 roll' call with Democrats
arguing deregulation would
leave consumers unprotect-
ed from unscrupulous busi-
ness interests.
"This dire lack of state
oversight will lead to trage-
dy after tragedy, which will
grace our newspaper head-
lines and break TV news
exposes," said Darren Soto,
D-Orlando.
Republicans argued that
regulation is stifling busi-
nesses with needless red
tape and holding down
competition. .
"Unnecessary govern-
ment regulations hurt
businesses and cost con-
sumers more money," said
Rep. Dorothy Hukill, a Port
Orange Republican who
sponsored the bill.
Hukill said much of the
regulation is in name only
because of alack of training
requirements, background
checks and monitoring.
"WIhen we give them a
number and say they have
a license or they have a
registration number that's
a stamp of approval, which
the average consumer will
rely upon thinking that we
do monitor them, thinking
that we do regulate them,"
she said.
Rep. 1Vatt Gaetz, R-Fort
Walton Beach, said the
regulations are intended
"to keep people out of the
Florida market so that
those in the Florida market
can enjoy that protection."
The bill also would
deregulate sports agents;
auctioneers; sellers of busi-
ness opportunities; chari-
table organizations; hair


braiders and wrappers
and body wrappers; dance
studios; health studios;
intrastate ~movers; sellers
of travel; talent" agents; tele-
niarkteting, and yacht and
ship brokers.
`The bill's prospects are
uncertain when it goes
to~ the Senate because no
similar legislation has been
filed ther~e.
Much of the deregula-
tion debate has focused
on interior design. College
~students majoring in inte-
rior design testified at
committee hearings that
their degrees would be
rendered meaningless if
anyone could go into the
business without training.
Business groups includ-
ing the National Kitchen
and Bath Association sup-
po~rted interior design
deregulation, arguing it
would expand the ranks
of designers, giving con-
sumers more choices, and
reducing cost.
The Screen Actors Guild
opposes deregulating tal-
ent agents, contending
it would jeopardize the
film industry's growth in.
Florida.
"A good reputation takes
a lifetime to earn, and it
won't take more than a few
unregulated, unscrupu-
lous agents to shatter the
trust thai; has been built
and send potentially lucra-
tive movie and television
production to one of the
other 49 states or outside
the United States altogeth-
er," guild board member
Richard Masur wrote in
a letter to House Speaker
Dean Cannon, R-Winter
Park.
The bill also repeals
regulations relating to
transportation access to
outdoor theaters, rooming
houses, sales representa-
tive contracts involving
commissions, television
tube labeling. and water
vending machines.
The House also voted
80-38 for another bill (HB
5007)~ reducing penalties


for violating business reg-
ulations and repealing or
modifying various regula-
tions including a reduction
in licensing, examination
and training for mold asses-
sors and remnediators.
Rep. Franklin Sands, D-
Weston, argued "people
will die" because of the


mold changes.
"People- are going to
come to Florida if we
deregulate mold and mil-
dew? Are you kidding mne?"
Sands said. "The charla-
tans and the scammers are
going to~ move to Florida to
be in the mold ant) mildew
business."

Sevehn-under
dlea s after first
TOun~d of major.
By PAUL NEWBERRY
Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Ga. Rory
McIlroy has another early
lead at a major champion-
ship. .
Now, he's got. to avoid
another meltdown.
One of golf's brightest
young stars, the 21-year-old
McIlroy surged to the top of
the Masters with a ?-under
65 on Thursday. He was
in the clubhouse two shots
clear of the field, poised to
become the youngest first-
round leader in Masters
history.
Former PGA champion
Y.E. Yang made a run at
McIlroy but closed with


back-tot-back bogeys, set-
tling for a 67. Long-hittmng
Alvaro Quiros also chal-
lenged, getting to 5 under
with ~five holes to playj.
McIlroy nearly duplicat-
ed his dynamic start at last
year's British Open, where
he opened with a 63. The
next day at St. Andrews, in
a howling wind .that actu-
ally forced a brief delay, he
slumped to an 80.
He shouldn't face those
conditions in Georgia,
'where the forecast calls
for warm, .sunny weather
through 'the weekend.
Whatever happens, he feels
better prepared to deal with
any diversity. .
"At the time, it was very
disappointing," McIlroy
said, referring to his sec
ond-round collapse at St~.
Andrews. "But looking
back, it was probably v-ery


valuable in my progression
as a golfer."
He rallied to finish third
in the British Open, though
far behind winner Louis
Oosthuizen, and was third
.at the PGA Championship.
Throw in his performance
at the Ryder Cup, where
he helped Europe reclaim
the trophy from the U.S.,
and it's easy to understand
why the young man from
Northern Ireland is consid-
ered a star-in-the-making.
He sure had it going at
Augusta National, taking
advantage of nearly per-
fect conditions for scoring:
a clear day with only the
slightest breeze. McIlroy
started rolling at the par-
5 second with the first of
three straight birdies, and
kept it going through a

milestone
75th
Masters,

week in golf is upon us.
Augusta National Golf
Club has been hallowed
ground since Bobby
Jones brought in his
buddies for a tournament
in 1934.
In record time Gene
Sarazen's double eagle
on No. 15 and victory in
1935 did the trick the
to raent beecamoem

Jones, the Masters is the
ultimate in southern
gentility and grace.
Crowds are called

sports world;.
The perfectly

firing plant. Led by' :
the azaleas and -
dogwoods, there are
splashes of colors
everywhere on the
course. Hole No. 13 is
named azalea and there
,are upwards of 1,800 of
them from tee to green,
The other side of
Augusta National is
corporate powet
exemplified by
'co-founder Cliff Roberts
who: ruled the -
tournament with an iron
fist~ until his suicide at
Amen Corner.
A couple of the power
moves have taken some
sheen off the place we
worshiped.
These are only minor -
compared to the lore,
and lessons, generated
by the tournament.
High points and
heartbreaks abound.
My old friend, John
Giebeig, came up-with a
couple of tickets about
1980 and we had a
12-year run of going to

at age 46, a 25th
anniversary being

ce r dsal pa was to
go to the course early
and follow one of the
promising groups all the
way, checking all the pin
placements and how the
wind was blowing..
On that Sunday mn
1986, we decided to go
straight to' No. ~15 and sit
in the stands. We stayed
all day, taking turns
going on a run to look at
a hole or load, up on food.
We saw Nicklaus make
his eagle there, and also
could see the birdie on
No. 16 from our seats.
Seve Ballesteros had
a four-shot lead and was
standing over a perfect
drive on No. 15. He
absolutely chunked
it into the pond, as
Nicklaus was polishing
off his 65 with a birdie on
No. 17.

he said. "I trusted where

Tilat's the key aroun'dhere.

you- can get tentative anid

just have to p~ick your tar-

I WRS. Vry. happy wiith the

.Mcllroy doesn't expect
tO fall~apart oixFriday;
"I have that experience
to draw on," he said, "espe-
cially being ilh a similar
position to last year at St.
Andrews. I feel like I'm
better prepared to tee off
ill the second round of a


major with the lead."
Tiger Woods 'wasix't ~any-
where near the lead, but at ~
least he wasn't totally out of
it. Mired in the lonigest w~in-
~less streak~ of his career, he
made a long putt at No.- 14, ~
lipped out sAveraL* others
and fiished with a 71.
He considered it a prom-
ising start.
"I'd rather be where Rory
Sis," Woods said, glancinigat
the scoreboard from behind
the 18th green. "But, hey,
there's a long way to go.
We've got a long grind
.ahead of us. ... I'm very
pleased. I'm right there in
the ballgame. I'm only six
back."


While Woods has gone
20 tournaments over 17
months without a win,
he's always a contender at
Augusta National, where
he's captured four' green
jackets and finished fourth
a year ago.
`Defending champion
Phil Mickelson teed off in
the next-to-last group and
pushed his opening tee
shot into the trees left of
the fairway. He scrambled
to save the fist of seven
straight pars, before a
birdie at No. 8 pushed
him into the red for the
fist time. Mickelson fin-
ished his first round at
two-under par.

DILBERT


DEAR ABBY: My son has
refused to speak to me ever
again because his girlfriend
asked me if he had another
child from a previous relation-
ship. I didn't think it was right
to lie to her, so I told her the
truth about his daughter. My
son called me yesterday and
told me I was "dead to him"
and he never wants to see me
again. I feel so guilty having
betrayed him. .
I'm not sure how to make
amends with my son. Abby,
can you help me? SAD
MOM IN OHIO
DEAR MOM: Your son
may have preferred his gir~l-
friend be kept' in the dark
about his daughter, but if the
'girlfriend didn't have some
strong suspicions, she would
not have raised the subject
with you. Frankly, Iadmire you
for telling the ruth and not go-
ing along with your son's.de-
ception. I'm not sure how you
should "make amends" with
your son. He is the one who
should be making amends
with you. His lack of character
is lamentable.
DEAR .ABBY: My wife
has been out of work for four
months. Last week she applied
for a job at a loan office. Dur-
ing the interview, she learned
it was a payday loan operation,
and she would be expected to
get people to sign up for loans
they could not afford.
This goes against our
principles. We have seen fam-


- amicably for the most part.
Since then, and even before,
Jake has had emotional prob-
lems.
My son makes up stories
about himself. On one of his
online social network; sites
he has been talking about a
vehicle he doesn't own. He
even invited a friend to go
four-wheeling with him in his
nonexistent vehicle. This is
only one of many hes Jake has
told. When I call him on it, he
admits it but says it~s "no big
deal."
Abby, people believe what
my son is telling them.~ What
is going on, and what can -I
.do? CARING PARENT,
IIITLIfON, COLO.
DEAR CARING PAR-
ENT: Your son may lie in or-
der to impress others, or be
so emotionally troubigd that
.he can't tell the difference be
tween what he fantasizes and
what is real. I assume that be
cause Jake has had emotional
difficulties for some time that
he has beeri under the care of
a therapist. If so, contact the
therapist and explain what's
going on. If Jake doesn't have
a therapist, find one. Perhaps
an intervention will help Jake.
If the lying persists, your son
will become increasingly iso-
lated as it gets out thatno one
can believe a word he says.

you are fun to be with, your
partner or person you are
interested in will want to be
by your side. Your dedica-
tion and determination to
achieve will help you get
what you want. AAA
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Don't be too
quick to share your ideas
and plans. Not everyone
will be in agreement with
you. Concentrate on what
you can do to make some-
one you love happy aind you
will avoid being blamed for
neglecting your home and
family. AAA
LEO (July 23-Aug. '


THE LAST WORD
Eu ge nia Last

22): Step into the limelight
by sharing your thoughts
and ojiihii'ds:" bd3ilf d' d
up in a leadership position
if you show your versatility.
Favors will be granted and
the chance to make a differ
ence will unfold. AAAA

22 GO (Aug. 23-S pt
advantage of yu. Spending
on something that will not
benefit you directly should
not be considered. Don't
feel obligated to -take on
someone else's responsibil-
ities. Question the motives
of anyone who is too com-
plimentary. SA ~
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct
22): Plan a mini vacation
or short trip to enhance
your emotional or romantic
life. Getting together with
someone you 'enjoy spend-
ing time with will change
your plans for the future,
giving you -greater oppor-
tunities and more to look
forward to. AAAAA ~
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21'): Do something
nice for you and your fam-
ily. Plan an excursion or
book yourself in to your lo-
cal spa. The time you spend
fixing up your residence
or upgrading your technol-
ogy-based entertainment
equipment will be worth it.


SAG~ITARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Don't let one
persorr get you down. You
have so much' going for you
atid:dlriIity' of S~upport from
friends ~ankfamniljr. Make
decisions that will improve
your lifestyle and allow you
to get involved in chialleng-
ing and entertaining activi-
ties AAA~
esAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Take care of
your own responsibilities.
Expecting someone else to
cover for you will be your
downfall. Do not criticize or
complain if you don'twant
to face opposition and pos-
sible isolation. AAA
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Start to imple
ment ideas that you have
not had a chance to pursue
in the past and you will find
a way to earn additional in-
come. You can make chang-
es to your home that will
raise its value or make a
move that will -fr-ee up cash
or lower your overhead.

PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Not every-
one will feel the same way
you' do and may not like
the decisions you make.
Someone may try to sabo-
tage yottr plans. Don't allow
your emotions to take over
or you will be labeled un-
stable. JrA
