Breakfast meeting
allows interaction
with legislators.

By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.com
A attending the annual
Legislative Breakfast
helped Tresca Crusaw
of Lake City learn more
*about what happened
during the recent legislative ses-
sion.
"I thought the event was very
informative," she said.
Crusaw was among the 140 peo-
ple attending the breakfast Tuesday
at the Lifestyle Enrichment Center.
The event was hosted by the Lake
City-Columbia County Chamber of
Commerce and sponsored by Clay
Electric and People's State Bank.
Legislators in attendance were
Senator Charlie Dean, Senator Steve
Olerich, Rep. Leonard Bembry
and Rep. Elizabeth Porter. Also at
the event were Adele Griffin with
Senator Marco Rubio's office, Lynn
Bannister with Senator Bill Nelson's
office and Nathan Riska with
Congressman Ander Crenshaw's
office.
The legislators or their represen-
tatives discussed what they worked
on during session. The state budget
was a main concern.
One of the biggest challenges
was coming home with a balanced
budget and not raising taxes or fees,
Dean said.
Dealing with a $3.8 billion defi-
cient may have sounded like bad
news, but legislatures got down
to the essentials, Oelrich said.
Legislators are sorry about some
services and funding having to feel
the pinch of the budget.
The budget put together was
good in many areas, but there were
a lot of things not perfect, such as
cuts to education, Bembry. said. He
voted against it, but ultimately the
budget will serve the state well.
Cuts had, to be made because
that's what people elect legislators
to do, Porter said. Of the budget,
40 percent goes to Medicaid and 30
percent to education.
"We had to cut where the larg-
est portion of the budget was," she
said.

'Wire' actress charged in drug case


BALTIMORE
A woman who played a
Baltimore drug gang
assassin in HBO's "The
Wire" has pleaded not
guilty to conspiring to
sell heroin.
Felicia "Snoop" Pearson entered
the plea Tuesday morning during
An arraignment in Baltimore Circuit
Court. An Aug. 9 jury trial date was
set.
Pearson is one of 64 people
charged in March in "Operation
Usual Suspects," a jdint state-fed-
eral prosecution of an alleged east
Baltimore drug gang. She is charged
in an indictment with conspiring with
two men to distribute heroin.
The 30-year-old Pearson was
released weeks later on $50,000
bond with electronic monitoring that
has allowed her to leave the state to
pursue her acting career.
She declined to comment after
the arraignment Attorney Benjamin
Sutley said it's too early to know if
the three will be tried together.


Shriver: It's a 'painful
and heartbreaking time'.
LOS ANGELES Former
California Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger has acknowledged
that he fathered a child with a mem-
ber of his household staff, a revela-
tion that apparently prompted wife
Maria Shriver to leave the couple's
home before they announced their
separation last week.
Shriver separately issued a state-
ment saying it was a "heartbreaking
time," and one of their children,
Patrick, expressed sadness and a
yearning for normalcy in a Twitter
message.
Schwarzenegger and Shriver
jointly announced May 9 that they
were splitting up after 25 years of

marriage. Yet, Shriver moved out of
the family's Brentwood mansion ear-
lier in the year after Schwarzenegger
acknowledged the child is his, the
Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.
"After leaving the governor's
office I told my wife about this event,
which occurred
over a decade ago,"
Schwarzenegger
told the Times on
Monday in a state-
ment that was
later sent to The
Associated Press.
Schwarzenegger "I understand and
deserve the feel-
ings of anger and
disappointment among my friends
and family. There are no excuses and
I take full responsibility for the hurt
I have caused. I have apologized to
Maria, my children and my family. I


am truly sorry.
"I ask that the media respect
my wife and children through this
extremely difficult time," the state-
ment concluded. -
Hours later, Shriver also released
a statement '"This is a painful and
heartbreaking time. As a mother, my
concern is for the children. I ask for
compassion, respect and privacy as
my children and I try to rebuild our
lives and heal. I will have no further
comment."

slashing jobs
FORT LAUDERDALE -
The Broward County school
district is cutting teaching
positions as it grapples with
a $144 million deficit for the
upcoming school year.
Officials said more than
1,400 teachers will receive
letters Tuesday morning
informing them of the lay-
offs. Most of these teach-
ers had either been with
the district for less than
two years or signed one-
year contracts. These jobs
were covered by federal
stimulus money, which is
not being renewed.
Teachers who receive
pink slips will finish out
the school year, which
ends in June.
Officials warned this may
not end job losses for the
nation's sixth largest school

by about $540 per student


Shark 'adoptions'

MIAMI Scientists at
the University of Miami are
letting people adopt sharks

No one gets to take one

home. But a $2,000 dona-
tion buys naming rights, a
satellite tag and the oppor-
tunity to track a shark in
real. time on the Internet for
up to a year.
The year-old program
has tracked 20 bull, ham-"
merhead and tiger sharks
in the waters off the Florida
Keys, South Florida and the
Bahamas.
One of the scientists said
the shark adoptions pro-
mote ocean conservation.
Researchers said healthy
shark populations indicate

Woman's plane photos


of space shuttle go viral


By MATT SEDENSKY
Associated Press
WEST PALM BEACH
Groggy from a late
night watching the
Yankees, frigid from a
chilled airplane cabin,
Stefanie Gordon, stirred
to action after the pilot's
announcement Lifting her
iPhone to the plane's win-
dow, she captured an oth-
erworldly image that rock-
eted around the globe as.
fast as her subject: Space
shuttle Endeavour soaring
from a bank of clouds, its
towering plume of white
smoke lighting the azure
sky.
She had never imag-
ined the response her
airborne image cap-
turing the last launch of
Endeavour and the next-
to-last space shuttle flight
would ignite. The
images and video have
been viewed hundreds
of thousands of times on
Twitter alone, landed on
network newscasts and
been published in news-
papers worldwide.
In turn, they've made a
photographic celebrity of
sorts of the unemployed
33-year-old from Hoboken,
N.J.
"It just blew up," she
said of the attention.
Gordon caught an early
Delta flight from New York
to West Palm Beach on
Monday to visit her par-
ents and had a whole row
to herself, never imagin-
ing the history she would
record.
;She stretched out and
took a nap. Then she
awoke shortly -before
the pilot announced the
descent had begun and
a sighting of the shuttle
was possible. She had
forgotten Endeavour was
even taking off at 8:56
a.m. EDT, but readied her
iPhone just in case.
Then, the pilot came
on again, alerting pas-
sengers the shuttle was
in sight.
"Everybody ran over to
the east side of the plane,"
Gordon said Tuesday,
"and all of a sudden there
it was in the clouds."
All told, she shot 12
seconds of footage of the
shuttle arcing on its sim-
ple stream of smoke into
space. She also shot three
still photographs.
The plane landed min-
-utes later in West Palm
Beach and while she was
waiting at the luggage
carousel, at 9:31 a.m., she
began uploading to Twitter.
As she waited for her father
to pick her up, she real-
ized her work was making
a splash.
"My phone just started
going crazy," she said.


ASSOCIATED PRESS
This citizen journalism photo taken with a cell phone by
Stefanie Gordon aboard a passenger flight from New York
to Palm Beach shows the space shuttle Endeavor as it
streaks toward orbit shortly after liftoff Monday.


Among those who
reached out to Gordon
was Anne Farrar, a photo
editor at The Washington
Post, who saw the images
after they were posted
by a friend on Facebook.
She said she'd never seen
anything quite like this
view of a shuttle launch
before.
"It was just a really
imaginative way to bring
it to our readers," Farrar
said. "It's almost like an


underwater view."
Endeavour is on a 16-
day trip the second to
last space shuttle flight
Its main mission is to
attach to the space station
a $2 billion physics experi-
ment.
The' Associated Press
contacted Gordon through
Facebook and purchased
the images. The AP often
obtains photos from eye
witnesses, called citizen
journalists.

Fort White garden clinic opens


By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia County
Extension Office is bring-
ing an existing resource to
an additional location.
A walk-in garden
clinic opens from 1-4
p.m. Wednesday at the
Columbia County Library
Fort White Branch. The
clinic will open every
Wednesday.
"We have a lot of clients
from the Fort White area
and gasoline prices are get-
ting a little higher," said
Nichelle Demorest, exten-
sion agent. "People need
help in the southern part
of the county and they
can go to the Fort White


library and not have the
gas expense"
Several master garden-
ers live in the area and can
complete volunteer hours
at the location without
having the cost of driving
into Lake City, she said.
The free clinic is the
same as the one offered at
the extension office dur-
ing the week, Demorest
said. The only component
missing is the call-in ser-
vice.
Gardeners can come
in and ask questions, get
plants or insects identi-
fied, bring in soil samples
for free pH tests by the
master gardeners and get
information about anything
garden-related, she said.


Information is researched
based.
"It's not just old wives'
tales," Demorest said. "Ifs
good gardening informa-
tion that has been proven."
The clinic is a partner-
ship between the two coun-
ty departments and more
extension activities will
take place at the library,
she said. Call Demorest at
(386) 752-5384 for more
information on the clinic.
"Ifs just a better way for
the university, extensipri
to outreach into the com-
munity," Demorest said.,
"That's what we do. We get
information to the people."
That's what extensions is
all about."

Atran said officials are
attempting to get local busi-
ness owners involved in this
year's campaign.


"What's important is that
we reach the community
and I think the businesses
are a phenomenal partner to
help us spread the word that
everybody needs to 'buckle

time," she said, noting the
DOT has posters and flyers


available to local business
owner who want to promote
the message.
Businesses owners who
would like to take part in
the campaign can call Gina
Busscher at the DOT office
in Lake City at 758-3714.


Later a question and
answer period was held for
citizens to bring up issues.
A concern for James
Montgomery of Lake City
was private schools receiv-
ing state funding through
vouchers but not being
tested the same as public
schools.
It is thought private
schools do much better
than public schools, he
said.
A student from a private


school was dual-enrolled
. in his class at Lake City
Community College but
failed, Montgomery said.
The student went on to
become valedictorian for
his school.
"We are assuming some-
thing that may not be true,"
he said.
If the state is giving
private schools money
they also need to be held
accountable, Porter said.

OPINION

OUR
OPINION


Careful:

Don't buy

what's

being sold
Like the seemingly
endless number of
distinctive personali-
ties that inhabit this
planet, there seems
to be no end to the number of
tactics certain people will use to
steal money.
Phone scams are nothing
new. They've been around
nearly as long as the telephone
itself. Most people have fielded
calls from salesmen offering
anything from free vacations
to the proverbial "chance of
a lifetime" to buy waterfront
property in, well, Florida.
But evolution is part of
human nature, and just as man
learns from his mistakes and
progresses, the scam artist
does as well. What every-
one, particularly in Columbia
County, should be aware of is
that nothing is sacred when it
comes to the devices used by
such criminals.
That includes law enforce-
ment. Last Friday, the sheriff's
office issued a statement warn-
ing against phone calls from
people soliciting money for
local law enforcement agen-
cies. The statement included
an unequivocal denial, saying
such agencies "will never solicit
donations from the commu-
nity."
This isn't the only example.
An older man called the Lake
City Reporter office to report he
received a call from an agency
purporting to represent the
government, telling him he
needed to update the deed to
his property. Cost to do this
was just under $200 a sizable
sum for almost anyone in this
economy, and one that's magni-
fied for a senior citizen on a
fixed income.
The man made a few calls to
Tallahassee and found no such
agency existed.
Even with the advent of the
computer which has opened
up an entire new world for
scam artists to plunder the
phone con artist remains. So
challenge any calls asking for
information or money.
It's an oft-repeated belief, but'
it still rings true: Ifit sounds
too good to be true, it probably
isn't true.

The death of bin Laden


and the paradox of torture


hat's the proper
response when
one's country
pops a cap in an
SOB like Osama
bin Laden?
A little involuntary exhilara-
tion is appropriate I felt it!
- but the spontaneous dem-
onstrations that developed
outside of the White House and
elsewhere were a bit unseemly.
President Barack Obama sug-
gests that we're not the type of
people who need to spike the
football, but apparently we are.
Unfortunately, this isn't a foot-
ball game and if it were, we're
only partway through the sec-
ond quarter.
Nevertheless, the demon-
strators, in their joy, are easily
forgiven. In our culture the
customary response to nearly
any triumph is to celebrate nois-
ily. In-your-face gloating is often
what we do when we win. I'm
not saying that it's a bad thing,
but we've come a long way from
Teddy Roosevelt's admirable
"Speak softly and carry a big
stick."
And what a fine stick it was!
The operation in Abbottabad
was essentially flawless, a clean
strike that showcased the cour-
age and skill of our soldiers and
steely civilian leadership. The
Seals know how to hit hard and
yet speak so softly that we don't
even know who they are.
In fact, the raid against Bin
Laden was so successful that
officials of the previous adminis-
tration hastened to claim credit,
forgetting that less than six
months after his inauguration,
they ridiculed Obama's slight-
est reference to the troubles-the


-a":

economy, Iraq, Afghanistan
- that he inherited from the
Bush administration. You're the
president now, they said.
Naturally, the Bush administra-
tion craves vindication for eight
years of mismanagement in con-
nection with OBL, for ignoring
him prior to 9/11, for losing him
in.Tora Bora, and then losing
interest in him during the distrac-
tion of Iraq. More than anything,
Dick Cheney and others have
claimed vindication for the use of
waterboarding and extraordinary
rendition that is to say, torture
- arguing that OBL would never
have been found without them.
As a rule we don't like to think
of ourselves as torturers; in fact,
we're inclined to use euphemisms
like "enhanced interrogation,"
and we rationalize waterboarding
by imagining that its no worse
than fraternity hazing.
But if we tortured, we have
plenty of company; ifs hard to
think of a culture that hasn't
used it in one form or another.
The Plains Indians were masters
of torture technique and some
sources suggest that they even
enjoyed inflicting pain on their
enemies. Some of our supposedly
most civilized institutions -
courts and churches, for example
- have been the dispensers of
the most shocking misery. If we


torture, we're merely doing what
humans have always done.
And why not? Sam Harris, well
known atheist and thinker, points
out the philosophical paradox that
we face when we eschew torture
while accepting (or ignoring) the
staggering collateral damage that
we commit during the course of
ordinary war. If we are willing to
incinerate innocent men, women,
and children with firebombings
and nuclear weapons in the pur-
suit of some higher goal, why
should we hesitate to inflict the
same level of suffering on a ter-
rorist in order to save innocent
lives? Harris doesn't have an
answer to this puzzle; neither do
I.
The problem is that some ver-
sion of this logic probably resided
in Osama Bin Laden's demented
brain. His motivation for mount-
ing the 9/11 attacks had rational
roots that involved our presence
in Saudi Arabia and our long-time
support for the House of Saud in
exchange for oil. Intensify those
feelings with perverse religiosity
and it probably wasn't hard for
him to see the murder of inno-
cents on 9/11 as meee collateral
damage, as well.
Don't misunderstand; I'm glad
the scoundrel is dead, and ifs
somehow satisfying to imagine
the pleasure that the unknown
Seal must have taken in pulling
the trigger. Still,'its a hollow,
uncomprehending celebration
that doesn't take into account
the history that has led us to this
point Unfortunately, in the broad
scheme of things, OBL's death
changes very little.
N John M. Crisp teaches in the
English Department at Del Mar
College in Corpus Christi, Texas.


When Donald
Trump dropped
his 2012 presi-
dential run,
the Republican
race lost its most entertain- '
ing candidate, and when Mike
Huckabee dropped out, and in
doing so found "inexplicable
inner peace," the party's social
conservatives lost their stan-
dard-bearer.
Trump was a novelty candi-
date who flared in the polls and
was even briefly the front-run-
ner in a Republican field that
doesn't really have a front-run-
ner. He perhaps peaked with the
"birther" issue, but that deflated
with President Barack Obama's
release of his long-form birth
certificate, and the killing of
Osama bin Laden made Trump
appear altogether frivolous. And
we are still waiting to hear back
from those investigators he sup-
posedly dispatched to Hawaii,
who, according to Trump, "can't
believe what they're finding."
In the end, he said to no one's
surprise, his "greatest passion"


was business, and although
he didn't say so outright, his
second-greatest passion is self-
. promotion, and if Trump had
stayed in the race, he would
have lost his greatest vehicle
for that, his lucrative TV show
"Celebrity Apprentice." He also
knew that if he stayed in, his
personal life and business deal-
ings would come in for intense
and unwelcome scrutiny.
Huckabee actually had a
serious shot at the nomination.
He won the Iowa caucuses in
2008 and was a good bet to win
them again this time around.
He was second in delegates at
the Republican convention and
finished the race with name
recognition and an enhanced
reputation. As a candidate, he
was affable, funny and refresh-
ingly free of the off-putting rage
that drives so many of Obama's
opponents.
The former Arkansas governor
couched his departure from the
race in spiritual terms. He could
not make the race "without God's
full blessing." There were surely


other, more temporal reasons.
He is said to be building his
dream house in Florida and, as
Politico political columnist Roger
Simon observed, "Huckabee has
a chance to take over the Fox
News Channel show being vacat-
ed by Glenn Beck, which means
Huckabee can maintain a high
profile and grow rich in the bar-
gain." He's 55 now, plenty young
enough to run again in 2016,
when the increasingly formidable
Obama is out of office.
As much as the GOP race has
a front-runner, it is Mitt Romney.
But the one-time governor is
still dogged by questions about
. his religion; his 2008 reversal
on key issues abortion, gay
marriage, gun rights; and his
Massachusetts health-care plan
that seems to be a selling point
everywhere but in the Republican
Party.
But there is a feeling among
political observers that the real
front-runner has yet to emerge
and may not even be in the race
yet.'

Extend

Mueller's

term as FBI

director

WASHINGTON

grumbling on
Capitol Hill, it
makes an infinite
amount of sense
for President Barack Obama
extend Robert Mueller III's
term as FBI director for an
additional two years. With
domestic security officials at
all levels anticipating some
terrorist activity in response to-'
the elimination of Osama bin
Laden, it would be an abso-
lutely terrible time to begin
a transition of leadership in
the agency that has primary
responsibility for thwarting
such activity.
Under the circumstances,
the president's call for legisla-
tion to keep Mueller in the job
should offer a rare opportunity
for complete bipartisan sup-
port in the Senate.
The 10-year limit on
Mueller's appointment is up in
a few months and the search
for a successor that meets
Obama's satisfaction has been
fruitless for one reason or
another, including the self-
exclusion of several potential
candidates who might meet
Obama's standards. Mueller,
appointed by George W. Bush,
has worked well with Obama.
He took over the bureau only -
relative moments before 9/11
and has been praised for help-.
ing to prevent a recurrence of
a successful terrorist incident
despite several close calls.
Most importantly, the for-
mer Marine and U.S. attor-
ney has been responsible -k
for turning around the FBI's '
Dillinger/communist hunting .
culture that has lingered at the
top echelons since the J. Edgar-
Hoover days, refocusing it
largely on counterterrorism. It :
hasn't been an easy task given
the power of the special agents
in charge of the bureau's field :
offices, any number of who '-
wanted a shot at the top job '
and resented such a radical -
change in mission.
But Mueller, whose easy
manner, steady work ethic and -
low profile have fit well n two
administrations, persevered.
He was helped along by sever-
al FBI failures that might have
headed off the 9/11 attack and
greatly tarnished the bureau's
public image. There was con-
siderable call for adopting a
British profile for counterin-
telligence, turning the FBI
into an MI5 responsible for
that alone and splitting off
the bureau's after-the-fact law
enforcement duties and plac-
ing them in another agency.
That talk has faded as Mueller
reassigned a.huge number of
agents from chasing lawbreak-
ers to antiterrorism specialists,
a preventive assignment.
Until Mueller the bureau
remained an autocratic, gang-
ster era agency frequently
hamstrung by political consid-
erations and its own penchant
for publicity hogging and lack
of cooperation with other law
enforcement and counterintelli-.
gence operations from the CIA:.
to state and local operations.
That seems to have changed
dramatically under the current
director.
Installing a new director
would mean several months of ';
uncertainty at a perilous time. "
It has taken years for Mueller "
to get the correct focus
installed and accepted. "':

Columbia County School
Board Administrative
Complex Auditorium,
where a quick hand on the
buzzer and quick thinking
proved to be the key ingre-
dients to winning.
During the contest,
teams had to answer 24
questions in.eight minutes
and at the end of the round
there correct answers were
tabulated as part of their
score. Each school team
took part in two rounds on
competition.
Tuesday's academic com-
petition was sponsored by
the Kiwanis Club of Lake
City, who has sponsored
the event for more than 20
years.
"I think the competition.
went well," said Kyle Keen,
Kiwanis Club of Lake City
president. "It's the first
time we did it at night, we
changed the format up a
little bit and we had lots of
participation. It was a fun


time."
Keen said the Kiwanis
Club is the proud sponsor
of the annual event.
"The Kiwanis Club is
all about the children of
Columbia County," he said.
"We serve the children of
the world and that's our
motto. Anytime we can
challenge young minds and
help them out, we're more
than glad to do that."
The competition evolved
from the former Think
Sharp academic contest.
Kitty McElhaney,
Columbia School District
director of curriculum,
assessment and account-
ability, said the event's for-
mat was changed to facili-
tate an evening event with
a shorter window of com-
petition.
"It's give the parents
a better opportunity to
attend," she said. "Since the
Kiwanis Club of Lake City
was the only sponsor, we


changed the title to reflect
its name and the format
was changed because we
had too much time between
rounds."
Westside Elementary
School fourth grade
students won the 2011
Columbia County Math
Bee competition on May
9 and Hamm said that put
pressure on the school's
team to win another aca-
demic competition.
The school's princi-
pal Cherie Hill, said she
was proud of both groups
efforts.
"We're very proud of the
students and we're thrilled
to see them win the com-
petition," she said. 'The
school has been so thrilled
about the success of our
students at these competi-
tions and it gives us some-
thing to work for in the
future."


Farm Bureau holds


Youth Speech Contest


From staff reports

Each year, the Florida Farm Bureau
Federation sponsors a Youth Speech
Contest, which begins at the county
level. The Columbia County contest was
held Monday at the Columbia County
Farm Bureau Board Room on Southwest
State Road 47 in Lake City.
Carolee Ashlin Morrow was the con-
testant from Fort White High School.
Dorothy Spradley, Cherrie Hill, and
Steven Dicks judged her efforts very


favorably and, as a result, Morrow will
be going on to the district contest on
September 8 in Jacksonville.
The 2011 topic is: "How can agricultural
producers reach out to the public to gain
their support on important issues impact-
ing agriculture, such as the environment,
animal welfare, food safety, etc.?"
Whoever emerges as the district win-
ner goes to the Florida Farm Bureau
Federal Annual Meeting in October to
compete in the state competition, with
the other seven district winners.

FortWhite's
Legree gets first
college offer.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
FORT WHITE Fort
White High football picked
up where it left off Saturday
in the Red & Black game.
The Indians' offense
added four touchdowns in
the remaining three quar-
ters played on Tuesday. All
came through the air.
"I hope the fans enjoyed
it," Fort White head coach
Demetric Jackson said. "It
was an opportunity to go
at it a little bit. We tried to
get our young guys in the
game."
Quarterback Andrew
Baker hooked up with Trey
Phillips for five completions
including a touchdown in
the opening quarter. *
The two-way play-
ers switched up and A.J.
Legree put on his offensive
face. He immediately made
an impact.
With a scout from the
University of Florida
watching, Legree caught a
65-yard touchdown pass on
his first offensive play. He
added two 30-yard catch-
es, the second going for a
touchdown.

Columbia to keep
the plan intact for
Dunnellon game.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
It's game week for
ColumbiaHigh as theTigers
prepare to host Dunnellon
High at 7:30 p.m. Friday at
Tiger Stadium.
Despite the fact that
the Tigers will see action
against another live oppo-
nent Friday, nothing will
change as far as prepara-
tion for Columbia.
"Not i thing changes,"
head coach Brian Allen
said. 'We'll prepare the
same way with four days
in full pads trying to get
better. We'll work on the
fundamental stuff and then
we'll take the game, go into
the teaching part and get
into review."
The plan for the game
against Dunnellon is to play
the varsity squad during he


first three quarters of the
game. Junior varsity will
play the fourth quarter.
Following the Purple &
Gold game, Allen had praise
forthewaymanyoftheTigers
performed. Some even
earned starting spots for
this week's game.
"Blake Kuykendall has
emerged in the starting
lineup," Allen said. "He's
definitely bought in and
that's a testament to a
guy that stepped up in the
Purple & Gold game."
Overall, Allen still feels
the Tigers need to compete
more as they did during the
second half of the Purple &
Gold rather than the slow
start Columbia came out
with.
"The guys competed
good, especially in the sec-
ond half," he said. "We still
have too many mistakes,
but we've only had six full
days in pads. We expect
mistakes at this point, and
that's why we need four
more days in pads at this


attack

said. "He is making plays
consistently and has a little
swagger."
Jackson said Legree got
his first official offer this
week. It came from Florida
Atlantic University.
"It has opened things up
for him," Jackson said.
Baker added a 48-yard
touchdown pass to Trey
Strawder, who took a
flare in the flats and out-


ran everybody to the end
zone.
Fort White's defense
stopped the offense five
times and had intercep-
tions by Tavaris Williams
and Tristen Nelson.
In the early game, Fort
White's middle school
played members of the
junior varsity.
Cameron White scored
two touchdowns for the


junior varsity. Tyler Reed
had a touchdown pass to
Austin Terry, and Reed
also scored on an intercep-

Allen is especially excit-'
ed about seeing how the
Tigers stack up against
Dunnellon.
"It's a chance to gauge
ourselves," he said.
"They're a very, very good

gives us a chance to mea-

Hall of Famer hit
573 career home
runs in MLB.
By DAVE CAMPBELL
Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS -
Harmon Killebrew, the
Minnesota Twins slugger
known for his tape-measure
home runs, has died at his
home in Scottsdale, Ariz.,
after battling esophageal
cancer. He was 74.
The team said Killebrew
died peacefully Tuesday
morning with his wife, Nita,
and their family at his side.
He had announced in
December that he had been
diagnosed with cancer. Last
week, Killebrew announced
that doctors had deemed
his cancer incurable and he


would no longer fight the
"awful disease."
Killebrew hit 573 home
runs during his 22-year
career, 11th-most "in major
league history. His eight
seasons with 40 or more
homers still is tied for sec-
ond in league history to
Babe Ruth.
"No individual has
ever meant more to the
Minnesota Twins organiza-
tion and millions of faris
across Twins territory than
Harmon Killebrew," Twins
president Dave St. Peter
said. He said Killebrew's
legacy "will be the class,
dignity and humility he
demonstrated each and
every day as a Hall of Fame-
quality husband, father,
friend, teanunate and man.
The Twins extend heartfelt
sympathies and prayers to


the Killebrew family at this
difficult time."
Killebrew broke in with
the Washington Senators in
1954 as an 18-year-old. He
spent most of his first five
seasons in the minors, then
hit 42 homers in his first full
season in 1959.
The Senators moved to
Minnesota in 1961, and
Killebrew hit 190 homers in
his first four seasons there,
including 49 in 1964.
The 11-time All-Star was
the American League's
Most Valuable Player in
1969 after hitting 49 home
runs with 140 RBIs and 145
walks, all team records that
stand to this day.
"I found out early in life
that I could hit a baseball
farther than, most players
and that's what I tried to
do," Killebrew said.


Harmon Killebrew dies at 74

Golfweek Amateur Tour


r* < plans stop in Lake City


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Tiger Woods hits from the sand on the sixth hole during the first round of The Players
Championship golf tournament Thursday in Ponte Vedra, Beach. Woods withdrew from the
tournament after nine holes.


Is it time to give up


on Tiger Woods?


By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press

PONTE VEDRA BEACH
Four days after Tiger
Woods declared himself
unfit to play more than
nine holes at The Players
Championship, he said he
expected to be atthe U.S.
Open next month.
"Will do all I can to get
there," he said on Twitter.
That only shows how
far away he is from catch-
ing, much less passing,
* the 18 majors won by Jack
Nicklaus.
The question used to be
whether Woods was going
to win 'a major.
-Now it's whether he'll
even play.
Only he knows how badly
his left knee and leftAchilles
are injured, and Woods
rarely has. been willing to
offer more than the bare
minimum about his health,
if that much. He withdrew
last year from The Players
Championship with a neck
injury he said had been
bothering him for a month.
He said he. ruptured his
right Achilles in December
2008, yet never mentioned
it until 16 months later.
It's no longer his pursuit
of Nicklaus that leads to
speculation. It's his health,
too.
Woods skipped one tour-
nament (Quail Hollow)
because he wanted to give a
"minor injury" time to heal.
He withdrew from the next
one (Players Championship)
without even getting to the
10th hole and with a nine-
hole score of 42 that ranks
among his worst.
The biggest change with
Woods is the perception of
him.
Had this happened five
tears ago, the focus would
have been entirely on his
injury, not the score on his
card. Yet there was plenty
of chatter among players
last week that Woods might
not have been so quick to
leave had he not been 6-
over par.
Opinions about whether
he, could catch Nicklaus
used to be based on his
form.
In an online survey for
readers, Golf Digest asked
if they thought he would
break the record. This
was after Woods won the
Masters and U.S. Open in


2002, and 73 percent said
"yes." Two years later,
when Woods had gone eight
majors without winning and
started to work with Hank
Haney, the magazine hsked
the same question, and 71
percent said "no."
Such is the fickle nature
of fans.
But it's different now.
This isn't only a matter of
Woods changing his swing.
He hasn't been the same
since he was caught cheat-
ing on his wife, which led to
divorce nine months later.
There was a neck injury
last year, a' cortisone shot
in his right ankle over
Christmas, and now it's the
left knee and left Achilles
from the shot he hit in the
third round of the Masters.
The key indicators are
shocking.
In the 21 stroke-play
events dating to his return
at the 2010 Masters, Woods
has not won a tournament,
has finished in the top 10
only seven times and has
$2.1 million in earnings. In
the same number of events
prior to his downfall on
Thanksgiving night in 2009
he had eight wins, 17
finishes in the top 10 and
earned $13.4 million.
Before his troubles,- 55
percent of his rounds were in
the 60s. Since then, only 34
percent of his rounds have
been in the 60s. His scor-
ing average is 1.8 strokes
higher, which equates to
seven more shots per tour-
naments.
Now mix in the uncer-
tainty of his health.
Can 'he win five more
majors to break Nicklaus'
record? Can he win 12 more
tournaments to break the
PGA Tour record for most
wins by Sam Snead?
"I thought it was a slam
dunk before Thanksgiving
a year-and-a-half ago," two-
time U.S. Open champion
Curtis Strange said. "I start-
ed having serious doubts
after his withdrawal last
week. He's losing valuable
time right now with injuries,
swing coaches, reinventing
himself. You don't have that
much time in a career to
break those kind of records.
"For him to come back
after all of this, it's going to
be a hell of a mountain to
climb."
Making the climb even
.taller is the emergence of


so many young players -
Graeme McDowell at 31 is
the oldest of the last four
major champions and
the diminishing aura of
Woods. He could get that
back by winning, but right
now Woods can't even con-
tend.
If) his head still is not in.
the game maybe that's
why he's missing all those
putts he now has recur-
ring leg problems.
The Achilles appears to be
the biggest problem. Swing
coach Sean Foley said he
was surprised that Woods
looked so sharp during
practice rounds last week
considering he had gone a
month without practicing.
On the final hole Woods
played at Sawgrass, he hit
his driver 40 yards by PGA
champion Martin Kaymer.
But when Woods climbed
out of a bunker behind, the
green, he appeared to be
taking baby steps.
Playing last week proba-
bly was a mistake. If Woods
had skipped The Players, he
would have had three more
weeks to let the Achilles
heal properly heading into
a summer of three majors.
Now he's back where he
was.
There were four weeks
between the Masters and
The Players. There are
four weeks between The
Players and the U.S. Open.
It could be that Woods will
be in the same shape at
Congressional as he was
last week at Sawgrass -
one bad swing away from
that "chain reaction" in his
left leg that caused him to
quit after nine holes.
Former PGA champion
Paul Azinger once thought
Woods for sure would
break Snead's record of
82 tour wins (Woods is at
71) and probably would
top Nicklaus in the majors,
although he never thought
it was a lock.
Now. he's not so sure
about either record.
"The big unknown is
the severity of the prob-
lem," Azinger said. "The
mental aspect still must be
addressed having the
ability to find someone he
can talk and talk with. He's
angry at himself, angry at
,the world, angry at peo-
ple tearing him down. But
physically, for the first time,
I'm starting to wonder."


Watson not ready to be


face of American golf


By PAT EATON-ROBB
Associated Press

CROMWELL, Conn. -
Bubba Watson is leading
the FedEx Cup standings
and has won three times
on the PGA Tour in the last
year.
But the long-hitting left
hander says he's not ready


to become the face of
American golf.
Watson spoke Tuesday at
- the TPC River Highlands,
the course where he won
3 his first PGA Tour title last
s June. Since then, Watson
t has won twice more: at
Torrey Pines in January,
- and at the Zurich Classic
in April.


The 32-year-old Watson
said while his golf game is
"steam rolling in the right
direction," he doesn't see
himself following in the
footsteps of Jack Nicklaus
or Tiger Woods as the next
great American golfer.
"I do have a pretty face,"
he joked in an interview
with The Associated Press.

BRYAN, Texas -
Tennessee's Erica Popson
brings a four-tourna-
ment winning streak into
the NCAA women's golf
championship.
Popson is the first NCAA
Division I golfer to win
four tournaments in a row


since Lorenia Ochoa cap-
tured seven straight from
2001-02.
The sophomore hopes
to continue her win-
ning streak that began in
March.
She will lead the
Volunteers in the 24-team
tournament that starts
today.


Tennessee coach Judi

thumb injury that has lin-
gered since she joined the
team has helped Popson
"grow up."
The Division I Women's
Golf Championship contin-
ues through Saturday at
Traditions Club in Bryan,
Texas.

Invitation to lingerie party

brings blush to hesitant guest


DEAR ABBY: I'm a se-
nior in high school and about
to graduate. The week after.
graduation, one of my close
friends is' getting' married.
I have no qualms about the
marriage, but I'm 'confused
about the pre-wedding par-
ties.
The bride and groom are
registered at three stores and
have had a Tupperware party
already. However, I have re-
ceived an invitation to' a lin-
gerie party to which guests
have been instructed-to bring
the bride lingerie with gift re-
ceipts attached.
Am I wrong in thinking
that buying intimate apparel
is the responsibility of the
couple? I plan to buy them a
wedding gift from the regis-
try, but I feel odd being asked
to essentially contribute to
their sex life. Abby, if I decline
the invitation, what would
be the proper way to do, it?
- BRINGING A BLENDER
IN MONTANA
DEAR B.A.B.: If you are
unable to attend the shower,
all you need to say is you're
unavailable on that date. You
do not have to give a reason.
However, lingerie showers
can be a fun way for women
to bond with each other. I
once attended orne at which
a guest jokingly brought the
bride a pair of handcuffs. (In
Montana, a set of spurs might
make an interesting gag gift.)
However, if you prefer not
to "contribute to the couple's

necked flannel nightgown?
Your gift could be the talk of
the party.
Readers, care to offer any
other gift suggestions?
DEAR ABBY: I represent
Operation Paperback: Recy-
cled Reading for the Troops.
Our. 10,000 volunteers, at
their own expense, collect
gently used paperback books

Since 1999, we have sent
over a million books and have
received thanks from Bos-
nia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea,
Germany, ships, at sea, and
dozens of places on the globe
where our military serves.
Because units are con-
tinually being deployed, re-
assigned and recalled, we
struggle to maintain current
address lists. We would ap-
preciate the assistance of
your forum in spreading the
word to service members and
their families that they need

DEAR ABBY: My step-
daughter came and cleaned
our house when my wife her
mother was ill. I appreciated
her efforts, until I noticed she
had put the toilet brush in the
dishwasher with the dishes. I
, quietly removed it.
Am I overreacting be-
cause I no longer want to eat
at her house? This made me
extremely uncomfortable
because most of our family

Ew! Had I been in your posi-

done, I'd have hit high C. And
I wouldn't have been subtle
about removing the toilet
brush from the dishwasher.
What a gross lapse of judg-
ment. I wouldn't want to eat
at her house either, and I'd
let my spouse know exactly
why. (Please tell me your

from her mother.)

CAPRICORN (Dec.

is likely to entice you but
now is not the time to make
a move that can disrupt
your personal life. Emotion-
al deception is apparent

PISCES (Feb. 19-

you handle anyone who is
being too generous or ac-
commodating. **

Grand Rental Station makes event planning easy


Customers can find all their
rental and event planning needs
at Grand Rental Station.
The business is owned by AC.
and Mearl Milton and Al Milton.
Terri Carver recently joined the
business as event coordinator.
Carver brings 25 years of event
planning and flora design experi-
ence to the business. She first
started out in flora design by
helping a friend who was getting
married
"She knew she could get flow-
ers cheaper," Carver said.
From there, her career expand-
ed to include management of nine
flower shops over the years an
coordinating weddings.
Carver lived in Ohio and
worked in wedding planning
and floral arrangements. Then
she moved to Tampa to focus
specifically on wedding plan-
ning before coming to Lake
City to share her event plan-
ning skills.
She has coordinated Diva
Day in Lake City and the Bridal
Expo in Branford, she said. Her
event planning experience rang-
es from weddings and parties to
family reunions and receptions.
Use of an event planner helps
take a lot of the stress and con-
fusion from the host, especially
if it's a bride, Carver said. She
can craft- the event hosts spe-
cifically desire for their special
day.
Carver is also budget con-
scious with her services.
"People aren't spending like
they used to, but they want to cl-
ebrate their special events," she
said. "Regardless of the economy
people are still celebrating."
Grand Rental Station carries a
full.line of wedding decor as well
as tables, chairs, linens, china and
silver service items, Carver said.
She can arrange every detail of

any special occasion.
"We take care of the whole
thing so they don't have to," she
said.
Services include balloons,
equipment sales, tent delivery
and set-up in addition to party
and special event planning.
Having the rental equipment
available allows customers to
pick out as much as they want
to make their event a success,


Carver said. There is a variety of
items available for party needs,
and the business' resources can
locate even hard to find items.
The mission of Grand Rental
Station is to provide quality
equipment at reasonable rates,
offer friendly and knowledgeable
service, offer the right solution to
customers needs and be the best-
it can be everyday.
Customers can keep business


local by hiring Grand Rental
Station for their rentals and event
planning, Carver said.
Advertising in the Lake City
Reporter gets the word out about
the business in Lake City and
Columbia County, she said.
"Word of mouth is good to a
degree, but it can't reach every-
one," Carver said. "The printed
paper is vital'to everybody. It
helps get the word out to so
h '


many people."

First-time senior artists

give county some color


By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.com

There is no such
thing as "you
can't do it,"
for Bernice
Hathaway of
Lake City.
"You just have to set
your mind to it and it will
come," she said.
Hathaway, along with
five first-time artists from
Columbia County Senior
Services, provided six
watercolor paintings for
the hall of the Department
of Children and Family
Adult Servi6es area.
The artists are: Patricia
Kime, 71; Mary Jones, 60;
Juliana Lett, 69; Marjie
Wozniak, 69; Novella Mills,
82; and Hathaway, 76.
Previously the hall
looked bland due to its
lack of decorations.


"It was just stark white,"
said Kay Deason, adult
API supervisor.
The DCF Child
Protective Services in
Gainesville had children .
draw pictures to decorate
their office, Deason said.
She decided to use that
same idea, using the group
the hall serves to provide
the decor.
Now instead of looking
at a blank wall the area has
some color, she said.
Adult Services
approached her about
having a group of seniors
provide paintings, said
Juliette Houston, CCSS
OAA supervisor.
Art supplies had been
donated to CCSS and
Susan Fiske offered to
teach a class on watercol-
ors.
The end result was six
different paintings display-


ing nature.
All of the paintings
are matted, framed and
displayed on the wall,
and each one features a
biography about the artist.
Adult Services honored
the artists with a reception
Tuesday.
Only Hathaway had
experience painting, and
the other five artists were
surprised at their com-
pleted work.
"It really encouraged me
to see the other girls that
had never painted," she
said. "I thought they did
excellent."
Hathaway, who is origi-
nally from Michigan, took
painting classes there
three years beforehand.
Her husband was also a
painter.
"Painting is the most
relaxing thing that I've
ever done I think," she

ABOVE: Kay Deason poses next to a painting done by Bernice Hathaway, 76, of Lake City.
The paintings make a distinctive difference compared to the bland, white walls of the office
hallways. 'It makes me happy coming down the hallway,' Deason said.

RIGHT: Nicole Rucker looks at 68-year-old Julianna Lett's water color painting. 'I love to
draw. Just give me some crayons and markers,' Rucker said. 'Looking at these makes me
feel appreciated. This hallway is like the brightness before going into the turmoil.'


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
This water color painting, done by Lake City resident Marjie Wozniak, 69, is one of six paint-
ings created by members of the Columbia County Senior Services. Wozniak said that she


had never painted before.

said. '"When I used to take
the classes, I'd always
wake up late the next
morning because I was so
.relaxed and had such a
good night sleep."
Although she is mov-
ing back to Michigan to
stay with her younger son,
her painting will remain
a part of the community.
Hathaway also plans to
start taking painting class-
es again.
"In fact the lady I took
lessons from asked if I
was coming back to the
classes," she said.
This isn't the first time
she's left a painting else-
where. Hathaway also has
one in Japan.


"I went to several art
shows in Michigan' and
a doctor came around
and saw my painting of a
sunset over the lake," she
said. "He liked it but not
the price. He walked away
but kept stopping to look
at the painting and turned
around and came back."
Ultimately she received
$250 for the painting.
Which proved the
paintings were a win-win
situation for CCSS and
Adult Services, Houston
said. It encouraged and
inspirited the first-time
painters to let out their
inner artist.
"It was really a boss-
ing for our seniors to do


things they didn't think
they could do," Houston
said.
Activities such as the
painting class are an
example of the variety of
programs offered through
CCSS at the LifeStyle
Enrichment Center, she
said.
'We've got different
activities throughout the
week," Houston said.
Anyone interested
in learning more about
Columbia County Senior
Services projects can call
755-0235.
"It's a wonderful place,"
Hathaway said. "All the
time they have something
different to do."


Squaring budget cuts with need for aging research


By LAURAN NEERGAARD
AP Medical Writer
WASHINGTON A disease
standoff may be brewing: How
can Alzheimer's research receive
more scarce dollars without cut-
ting from areas like heart disease
or cancer?
In one of the stark realities
of the budget crisis, scientists'
chances of winning research dol-
lars from the National Institutes
of Health for any condition have
dipped to a new low.
'We are clearly not able to sup-
port a lot of great science that
we would like to support," NIH
Director Dr. Francis Collins told


senators last week. This year, for
every six grant applications that
NIH receives, "five of them are
going to go begging."
That's down from nearly 1 in 3
grants funded a decade ago, and 1
in 5 last year. And it comes before
the looming fight over how much
more to cut in overall govern-
ment spending for next year, and
where to make those cuts.
Already, a new report says one
of the biggest losers is aging
research, despite a rapidly gray-
ing population that promises a
worsening epidemic of dementia,
among other illnesses.
"Nobody wants to say
Alzheimer's is worse than diabe-


tes or heart disease or cancer,"
says Dr. Sam Gandy, a promi-
nent neuroscientist at New York's
Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
But "part of the problem now
with all the pressure to cut the
budget ... is that for Alzheimer's
to get more, something else has
to lose," adds Gandy. His own lab
is scrambling for funds to study a
potential dementia drug after los-
ing out on an NIH aging grant.
The NIH pays for much of
the nation's leading biomedi-
cal research. Republicans and
Democrats alike have long been
staunch supporters. But the
agency's nearly $31 billion bud-
get offers an example of the hard


choices facing lawmakers, espe-
cially if they're to meet House
calls for a drastic scale-back of
overall government spending.
Consider aging issues.
The NIH spends about $469
million on Alzheimer's research,
says a new report from the
Alzheimer's Foundation of
America that criticizes overall
aging research as "a minuscule
and declining investment."
About 5.4 million Americans
now have Alzheimer's disease,
and studies suggest health and
nursing home expenditures for
it cost more than $170 billion a
year, much of it paid by Medicare
and Medicaid.


NIH's Collins told a Senate
appropriations subcommittee that
there's a "very frightening cost
curve." In 2050, when more than
13 million Americans are project-
ed to have Alzheimer's, the bill is
expected to reach a staggering
$1 trillion. But he said that cost
could be halved merely by find-
ing a way to delay people getting
Alzheimer's by five years.
Monday, Republican presiden-
tial contender Newt Gingrich
jumped into the debate, saying
that over the next four decades
Alzheimer's could cost the gov-
ernment a total of $20 trillion. He

Preparing for



severe weather


FAMILY FEATURES

S severe weather can strike in any state, at any time.
According to the National Weather Service,
there are an average of 10,000 thunderstorms,
5,000 floods, 1,000 tornadoes and two hurricanes
that make landfall each year.
No matter where you live, you need to be prepared to deal
with severe weather. If you have children, get them involved
in planning and preparing it will help them learn what to
do to stay safe. They can help pack emergency kits and make
lists of other items such as books and games to keep them
occupied, blankets and pillows, and pet care items.
These tips and checklists from Energizer will help you get
ready before severe'weather strikes.


Let them kno%
you're safe
If your community c\perierLc,
a weather-related di:,,.er, ith
American Red Cros; can help
you let friends and :.,m-l',
know you are safe. KIL1.' cr
on the Safe and Well ehiie
(safeandwell.communiiiir'.. otcI
or by calling 1-866-GLET iN-iN


Storm-ready
checklist
* Know your community's warning systems
for severe weather.
'm Talk to someone at your local emergency
management office to find out the types of
severe weather or natural disasters most
likely to happen in your area. Ask about
animal care after a disaster as well.
Pick a safe place in your home for family
members to gather. For tornadoes, it should
be a basement, storm cellar, or an interior-
room with no windows on the lowest floor.
For severe thunderstorms, it should be away
from windows and doors that could be
broken by strong winds or hail.
* Have a hurricane evacuation plan in place
which includes designated places to meet.
When an evacuation is called, leave
immediately.
* Practice severe weather drills so everyone
knows where to go and what to do.
* If someone in your home is dependent
on electricity powered medical equip-
ment, make sure you have backup power
available. .
Move or secure lawn furniture, trash cans
or anything else that can be picked up by
high winds.
* Make sure you know what plans your
workplace and your child's school or
day care center have for severe weather
occurrences.


Emergency
preparedness kit
The American Red Cross recommends that
you have an easily accessible Emergency Kit
ready for severe weather outbreaks and power
outages. It should have supplies for at least
three days.
* Water One gallon per person, per day,
for drinking and for hygiene
* Food Nonperishable foods
* Flashlights or other battery-powered
lighting devices
* Battery powered weather radio
* Extra batteries
* Cell phones and chargers
* First aid kit
* Medications
* Sanitation and personal hygiene items
* Copies of personal documents medical
information, birth certificates, deed/lease to
home, insurance policies, credit cards, etc.
Keep them in a waterproof bag.
* Family and emergency contact information
m Extra cash
* Food, water and medication for pets
Pack the items in easy-to-carry containers,
such as duffle bags, backpacks or covered
trash receptacles. Make sure the containers
are clearly labeled.

What to do when
the power goes out
Power outages can range from a minor
nuisance of an hour or two, to a prolonged
outage of several days. Either way, keep
these safety tips in mind:
* Turn off and unplug all unnecessary
electronic equipment when the power
comes back on, a power surge could
damage it.
" Leave one light switched on so when
the power does come on, you'll know
right away.
* Do not use candles during a power outage
the potential risk for fire is too great.
Instead, use flashlights or lanterns, and
make sure they are easily accessible to all
family members.'The line of Energizer
Weatheready lights feature long-lasting LED
technology to provide extended run times.
* Keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed..
An unopened refrigerator will'keep foods
safely cold for about 4.hours; a full,
unopened freezer will keep its temperature
for about 48 hours.
* If the power will be out for more than a day,
use a cooler with ice for cold items.

but one from which home chefs often shy away.
In a new series of Canolalnfo recipes and videos,
Carla Hall, finalist on "Top Chef" Seasons 5 and 8,
answers common questions about fish, including how to
properly select and prepare it.
"Cooking fish is easy once you know a few tricks," said
Hall, who was voted "Top Chef" Season 8 All-Stars Fan
Favorite. "A lot of people have fish fears, which is
unfortunate because it's a healthy addition to any diet and
ticky-boo to prepare."
Hall's Canolalnfo recipes are made with canola oil,
which is a good source of omega-3 fat along with the fish.
Omega-3 fat may help protect the heart, especially when
consumed in place of saturated fat. In fact, the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration authorized a qualified health
claim for canola oil on its potential to reduce the risk of
heart disease.
In addition to the recipes here, Hall offers Halibut en
Papillote (meaning "in parchment" in French) with Roasted
Tomato-Artichoke Ragout and Broiled Trout with Lemon
Oil and Oven-Grilled Vegetables in her "Go Fish with
Canola Oil" recipe collection. For the recipes and step-by-

AGING: Funds must be juggled to meet numerous needs

suggested selling U.S. bonds to
raise money for research rather
than have the disease compete
each year for a share of the fed-
eral budget.
"We are grotesquely under-
funded," Gingrich said of health
research dollars.
The Alzheimer's Foundation
report goes beyond dementia,
finding that the National Institute
on Aging receives 3.6. cents for
every dollar Congress sends
to the NIH. Cancer and heart
disease get .nearly three to four


times as much. Despite the tough
economic times, the foundation
has joined with other groups lob-
bying for an extra $300 million for
the aging institute's overall work
next year, to boost its budget to
$1.4 billion.
Competition for today's dol-
lars is fierce, with applications up
60 percent at the" aging division
Alone since 2003. Aging chief Dr.
Richard Hodes says last year, his
institute couldn't pay for about
half of what were ranked as the
most outstanding applications for


research projects. Still, he hopes
to fund more scientists this year
by limiting the number who get
especially large grants.
What's the squeeze? Congress
doubled the NIH's budget in the
early 2000s, an investment that
helped speed the genetic revolu-
tion and thus a host of new proj-
ects that scientists are clamoring
to try. But in more recent years,
economists say NIH's budget
hasn't kept pace with medical
inflation, and this year Congress
cut overall NIH funding by 1 per-


cent, less than expected after a
protracted battle.
The Obama administration
has sought nearly $32 billion
.for next year, and prospects for
avoiding a cut instead are far
from clear. Sen. Tom Harkin,
D-Iowa, who chairs the subcom-
mittee that oversees the issue,
warns that under some early-
circulating House plans to curb
health spending, "severe reduc-
tions to NIH research would be
unavoidable. That doesn't make
sense."


Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan.,
pushed Collins to make the
case that investments in medical
research really can pay off.
Collins'response: Four decades
of NIH-led research revealed how
arteries get clogged and spurred
development of cholesterol-fight-
ing station drugs, helping lead
to a 60 percent drop in heart-
disease deaths. Averaged out,
that research cost about $3.70
per person per year, "the cost
of a latte, and not even a grande
latte," Collins told lawmakers.

RED UP for Flvor


Grilling is a great
way to get a
whole lot of
flavor that goes
way beyond
plain burgers and basic
barbecue. Lean meats, juicy
marinades and zesty toppings
add up' to terrific flame-kissed
dishes that will make guests
want to kiss the cook.
Here are some easy ways to
take big flavor from the grate
to the plate:


Grill Up the
Unexpected
A lot of fruits and veggies are
easy to cook over the coals.
Try:
Zucchini
Eggplant
Portobello mushrooms
Corn
Romaine hearts
Pineapple
Onion (sliced thick)
Stone fruits like peaches,
plums and mangoes


Marinate Meats
When grilling lean meat, use
a flavorful marinade with
some acidic ingredients (like
citrus juices) to help break
down tough meat fibers.
Make sure the marinade
covers the
meat entirely, and let it do
its magic for several hours
or overnight. Some bold
ingredients to experiment
with:
Chili sauce
Olive oil
Lemon or lime juice
Soy sauce
Worcestershire sauce
Molasses
Garlic
Red pepper flakes


Top It Off

Caramelized onions
Spicy Wholly Guacamole
Pickled jalapefto peppers
Chipotle or basil mayo
Wholly Salsa
