Board ready


to vote on


EMS service


Plan would save
$1.2M but could
cost county jobs.

By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter.com
The county is poised
to ,vote on a prepared
contract. that will priva-
tize Emergency Medical
Services in the entirety
of Columbia County, sav-
ing the county $1.2 million
annually, but costing some
county EMS employees
their jobs, officials said
Wednesday,
The Columbia
County Board of County
Commissioners will review
and discuss the contract,
which is with Lifeguard
Ambulance Service of
Florida for a five-year term,
at its regular meeting
today.
In March, Lifeguard was
ranked as the top choice to
provide local EMS, should
the decision to privatize
occur. The county is cur-
rently supplementing its
EMS services with about
$1.2 million annually.
Under the proposed con-
tract, which gives Lifeguard
the exclusive tight to pro-
vide local EMS, the county


would save that annual $1.2,
million because EMS would
be provided at zero subsidy,
said Dale Williams, county
manager.
' 'The county would not
be obligated to provide any
subsidy to Lifeguard," he
said. "They would provide
the service for the revenue
that they could generate."
No current Columbia
County EMS job is guar-
anteed to be kept, Williams
said, but under the terms of
the agreement, Lifeguard
will hire as many of those
people as possible.
"There are some that
they will not hire because
they simply do not have
the position for," he said.
"There are some they're
not going to hire because of
their past employment his-
tory or record. And there
is a number that they will
hire, but the county is not
requiring them under the
terms of this agreement as
written, to hire a specific
number."
Williams noted the initial
Request for Proposals for
providing local EMS was for
the county's unincorporated
area and the Town of Fort
White, but Lifeguard was
also willing to provide EMS

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS



Stars say goodbye to Oprah Winfrey


CHICAGO
Oprah Winfrey wiped
away tears as celebrity
after celebrity surprised
her during a farewell
double-episode taping
of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show" that
will precede her finale.
"Thank you is not enough, but
thank you," Winfrey told the crowd
of 13,000 gathered at Chicago's
United Center on Tuesday night
for "Surprise Oprah! A Farewell
Spectacular." "For your love and
your support, thank you."
The crowd gave Winfrey a standing
ovation when she first walked on the
stage. Then the stars came out, with
Winfrey's producers making good on
their promise of the biggest celebri-
ties of movies, music and television.
Aretha Franklin sang "Amazing
Grace." Tom Hanks acted as host
for the evening. Michael Jordan,
who led the Chicago Bulls to six
NBA championships during the
1990s, told Winfrey she inspires
him. Tom Cruise, famous for his
couch jumping on Winfrey's show,
was there. Jerry Seinfeld wore a
tuxedo to give a comedy routine.
And Madonna said she is among the
millions of people who are inspired
by Winfrey.
"She fights for things she believes
in, even if it makes her unpopular,"
Madonna said.
Winfrey announced in November
2009 that she would end her popular
talk show after 25 years. Tuesday's
taping will air May 23 and 24, before
Winfrey's final show on May 25.

filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit last
week against McGraw, claiming the
country superstar failed to provide a
fifth and final album that met contrac-
tual obligations under their deal by an
April deadline.
McGraw turned in an album
last fall called
0 "Emotional
Traffic," and a No.
1 single from those
sessions has been
released. But the
label contends
the singer did not
McGraw record the songs
on the album dur-
ing a contractually stipulated window,
thus breaking the deal.
The label asks a judge in the
nine-page lawsuit filed in Davidson
County Chancery Court not only to
force McGraw to turn in new mate-
rial for a fifth album, but also to
revoke an agreement between the
two that eliminated a sixth album
from the deal. Curb also wants
McGraw barred from signing with
another label.

reported and the school's
students and staff on cam-
pus at the time of the inci-
dent are reportedly safe.
The school is expected to
resume normal activities


following Wednesday's
investigation.
The Florida Department

investigating the incident
at the request of both the
Alachua County Sheriff's
Office and the High Springs
Police Department.


Prescribed burns slow fire


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

The Honey Prairie wild-
fire is now listed as being
45 percent contained,
according to Georgia
Forestry Commission
Incident Management
team officials.
Accordingto information
released by forestry ser-
vice officials Wednesday
' morning, the fire has con-
sumed 137,959 acres.
Officials have reported
the fire is burning actively
in the upland areas within
control lines under lower
humidity and higher tem-
peratures. The acreage


increase is due to the pre-
scribed fire operations on
the northwest portions of
the fire. Firefighters have
been able to continue to
hold the fire within the
established control lines.
Firefighting efforts are
utilizing eight helicopters,
30 engines, 42 bulldozers/
plows, one water tender,
two crews, one camp crew,
140 fire support personnel
and a total of 353 people.
Additional resources not
included in the count, are
being provided by private
industry and state agen-
cies.
Officials plan to continue
using strategic prescribed


burns to eliminate addi-
tional fuels for the fire. The
prescribed burns are tak-
ing place along Highway
177 in Georgia.
The prescribed burns
are intended to secure
the north edge of the fire
and to assure protection
of infrastructure at the
Stephen C. Foster State
Park in Georgia.
Along the southern
edge of the fire, officials
said firefighters will con-
tinue to mop-up operations
along hot spots in the con-
trol lines.
The Honey Prairie fire
started April 28 with a
lightning strike.


within the City of Lake
City limits for zero sub-'
sidy. The county received
a letter from City Manager
Wendell Johnson say-
ing the city supports the
county entering into the
!contract, Williams said.
The Council unanimous-
ly voted to show support
Monday.
Including the city
would enhance EMS,
Williams said, and so it
became involved in the
negotiations.
"Based on a letter that
we've received from the
city manager, the city
appears to be on board
as participating as a
party to this agreement
for Lifeguard," he said.
"So even though the ini-
tial RFP was for the unin-
corporated area only, the
contract would include
the entire county."
While the contract
will be presented to
the board by County
Attorney Marlin Feagle,
Williams said more con-
tractual changes could
still be made.
"Even though the
commissioners have


had different versions (of
the contract) for several
weeks, I look for Marlin
to give an explanation

"There could even be fur-
ther changes."

AN-
OPINION


New property

insurance law

won't help

consumers

The sweeping prop-
erty insurance bill
Gov. Rick Scott
signed this week not
only fails to provide
relief for Florida's beleaguered
ratepayers it nray make mat-
ters worse for them. He should
have vetoed it and demanded
that lawmakers send him a bill
that can stabilize the market
without soaking consumers.
Advocates say SB 408 will help
fix the state's dysfunctional insur-
ance market Well, yes, the mar-
ket is broken but this remedy
won't fix what's wrong. It allows
annual rate increases of up to 15
percent to cover higher reinsur-
ance costs, giving companies
another excuse to cash in and
making consumers vulnerable to
serial premium hikes without
fixing the underlying problems.
Reinsurance is a standard fea-
ture of the insurance industry, a
conventional way for companies
to hedge their bets by covering
their own risk. In the last few
years, reinsurers have become
bigger players as Florida's insur-
ance market has undergone a
transformation that gives insur-
ance companies more opportuni-
ties to avoid tight regulation by
the state.
Many of these firms are
located offshore, beyond the
reach of regulators. Gov. Scott
says the legislation encourages
competition that gives con-
sumers more choices, but the
record shows that thinly-capital-
ized insurance companies lured-
by the prospect of easy profits
don't help consumers atial-.
A published report of risk
analysis performed for the state
showed it was paying reinsur-
ers as much 40 cents for every
$1 of protection it received
- like paying $40,000 to insure
a $100,000 property even
though the average annual
value of an expected hurricane
loss (which never occurred)
was more like 4 cents per $1.
The law signed by Gov. Scott
explicitly allowing a new round
of rate hikes justified by higher
reinsurance costs is an invita-
tion to let insurance companies
take advantage of a wide regu-
latory loophole, even though
there is no apparent need for it.

take the opportunity today
to declare my intention to
seek the Republican nomi-
nation for president.
Many candidates make
a grand event of this, but that
is not my humble nature. Nor
do I wish to employ so-called
"new media," such as Twitter
and Facebook. Those newfan-
gled gimmicks are for the likes
of Barack Obama. You will
want me to use a Teleprompter
next.
Such a momentous
announcement as mine should
not be tweeted like a canary
commenting on a bird feeder.
As for Facebook, I have no

face..People,.suffer, enough.
when they meet me.
No, I am appealing to old-
fashioned folks nostalgic
for the days when carrier
pigeons did a fine job of car-
rying messages. I want real
conservatives, backward-
thinking folks steeped in the
ways of the past not to
mention steeped in alcoholic
beverages taken strictly for
medicinal purposes.
This is my target demo-
graphic. Nothing against
young people, but my view is
that they are not yet smart
enough to be old. Instead of
sitting around texting each
other on whatever comes into
their young heads, they should
be preparing themselves for all
the national debt they are des-
tined to inherit. Many seniors
agree with me about this.
Why, you ask, have I decid-
ed to run at this time? Because
I hear my nation calling me to
service. "Yoo-hoo, Reg," the
nation says. I must say it star-
tled me when I first heard it. I
thought it was my wife telling
me to mow the lawn.
The other reason I am run-
ning is that the Republican
field is being reduced by the
minute. This is very worri-

To the editor:
On Thursday (April 28), the
Lake City Reporter published an
article regarding the vandalism
of two vans owned by Columbia
,County Senior Services, Inc.
These vans are used to pro-
vide transportation services
for senior citizens of Columbia
County. They are used to trans-
port individuals to and from the
LifeStyle Enrichment Center,
provide transportation to and
from doctor appointments, pro-
vide transportation fqr shop-
ping, and provide for the deliv-
ery of 33,000 meals delivered
annually to home-bound clients.
Transportation services are pro-
vided four days a week and meal
deliveries occur three days a
week. The meals provide sup-

some. If this keeps up, politi-
cal pundits will have nothing
to comment about. They will
become like Trappist monks
in their contemplative silence,
only less pious.
Donald Trump has with-
drawn, as if taking a whole
weather system off the map,
hig hair alone having served
as a vast cloud front. Mike
Huckebee has also departed
- and gone with him is the
down-home jovial presence
much admired by those who
prefer gravy to gravitas.
The field hasn't become too
bland, not with the serially
repentant Newt Gingrich mak-
ing the case that everything the
party of family values has stood
for in the last 20 years will be
revealed as hypocritical if he is
nominated.
And he is just one of a mad-
cap crew, such as Michele
Bachmann, who is so clever that
she can make up history, and
Rick Santorum, famous for his
principled stand against inter-
species sex.
This is all very well, but if
President Obama is to be defeat-
ed, the Republican Party can-
not turn its back on the stodgy
views and sclerotic prejudices
that have made the GOP great.
So what does that whippersnap-
per Rep. Paul Ryan think he
is up to with his vouchers for
Medicare? Where is the old-
fashioned pandering? Someone
special needs to run for presi-
dent to stop the rot. Did I say I
love America? And adore dogs


port to home-bound clients for
either five or seven days.
When the vans are out of ser-
vice it has a significant impact
on our abilities to provide trans-
portation services and delivery
of meals.
After reading the article pub-
lished Wednesday, a long time
resident of Columbia. County
who frequently visits and sup-
ports the activities of Columbia
County Senior Services visited
the LifeStyle Enrichment Center
to discuss the vandalism to
the vans. After the discus-
sion ended, this individual asked
what the cost to repair the vans
amounted to. This individual
then took out a checkbook and
wrote a check to cover the full
cost of repairs. Both vans have


and old people, not necessarily
in that order? (I am still work-
ing out my position on kittens.)
As a bonus, no doubt exists
on whether I was born in this
country and for good rea-
son. I wasn't. By geographical
chance, I was born in Singapore
and grew up in Australia, but I
believe I am a natural-born citi-
zen because I have-been called
"a natural" many times most
recently, a "natural screw-up."
Besides, who knows what
"natural born" means in the
Constitution? You .can't be
president if your mother had o
a Caesarean? This is clearly a
job for lawyers. When I hire
some at $300 an hour, the
American people will recog-
nize this as one of the most
fundamentally patriotic acts in
the United States of Attorneys.
That should quell the contro-
versy.
As befitting my modern-
averse candidacy, I am work-
ing out position papers that
will comfort voters with a
strong resistance to change.
I have decided to support the
gold standard but oppose the
Treaty of Versailles.
On more contemporary
issues, I believe wrinkles
should be tax deductible and
Medicare and Social Security
should be declared religions
that cannot be taxed or inter-
fered with. It is true that I
am for bringing back the
stocks, but only for the crime
of cell phone use in theaters.
However, I am against debtor
prisons because everybody in
America would have to be put
in one.
I thank you for your sup-
port. Look for my exciting
slogan ("Back to the Future")
and political announcements
delivered by friendly carrier
pigeons. Talk about tweeting.

Veterans

on-going

battle for

benefits


talks about
America's
military veter-
ans, President
Barack Obama's words ring
with the heartfelt commitment
of a commander-in-chief deter- .
mined to make sure those who.
fought our battles will get the
benefits they earned. And so :
will their families.
So it was more than sur-
prising actually shocking
- to discover the latest woe
that has befallen thousands
of veterans who have been
trying to appeal disability ben-
efits claims that were initially
rejected by the Department of -
Veterans Affairs adjudicators.
Not only are veterans' appeals
languishing in a growing
backlog that has clogged the
special court that was created
as their last resort, but one big
reason for the backlog is the
failure of the Obama White
House to nominate candidates
for one-third of the court's
judgeships.
The U.S. Court of Appeals
for Veterans Claims is allotted,
nine judges but three of the
judgeships are vacant and .
have been for more than a
year. Meanwhile the caseload,."
has nearly doubled since the
attacks of 9/11 from 2,442
appeals in 2000 to 4,725 in
2009. Just six judges decide all'
those cases.
What is happening or in .
this case, not happening at
the over-burdened U.S. Court. .
of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
is a classic case study of how .
Washington really works. Or,
how Washington really doesn't -
work the way the folks at the
top think it is working.
For, picture yourself occupy-
ing the comfortable chair in
the room with no corners at
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
You have given speeches com-
mitting yourself to all the right
things. As when you stood at
the Yongsan Army Garrison in
South Korea last November and
told .1,400 troops: "I want all of
you to know when you come
home your country is going
to be there for you. That is the
commitment I make to you as
Commander-in-Chief. That is the
sacred trust between the United
States of America and all who
defend its ideals."
Secretary of Veterans
Affairs Eric Shinseki, given
his mission by his president,
has made a number of signifi-
cant improvements in the VA
process. But while some big
program changes were being
properly trumpeted, we don't
know if the president was even
aware that his White House
has made the problem worse
by failing to fill three vacancies
in the court's nine judgeships.
Shamefully, more than
13,000 vets have died awaiting
appeals to be decided. Most
recently, the veterans' appeals
court found for the appealing
veterans and overturned or
remanded back for new con-
sideration the VA's rejections
of 2,651 veterans' claims. In
other words, the court found
for the veteran and against the
VA more than half the time.
What Obama and Shinseki
need to do most of all is
change the mindset at the
VA by instilling a sense
that this is the Department of
Veterans' Advocates.

SCHOOL: Was school district administrator for more than three decades

Continued From.Page 1A


Elementary School. Rankin
worked as the Melrose,
Park Elementary School
principal for nearly 10
years before he retired in
2003. After his retirement
from the school district,
Rankin became a realtor
with Hallmark Real Estate
until his health required
him to resign.
During Rankin's stint
as the Melrose Park
Elementary School princi-
pal, the school received its
first "A-rating" under Gov.
Jeb Bush's A+ Education
plan and. along with
Lake City Middle School
became the first A-ranked
schools in county history.
People who knew
Rankin on the profes-
sional and personal level
described him as a fam-


ily man, who made the
school's students and its
employees his family.
Diane Perry, who
knew Rankin since 1971,
worked as a first-grade
teacher under his lead-
ership at Melrose Park
Elementary.
"Mr. Rankin was an
outstandkig principal for
10 years at Melrose Park
Elementary," she said.
"He was a good leader
because he trusted his
faculty and he loved the
children. He was willing
to do anything to help the
school succeed."
Perry said Rankin was a
strong supporter of having
students read and noted
that he pulled stunts if
the students read a cer-
tain amount of books. The


stunts ranged from him
wearing tights, dressing
as a knight, kissing a frog
and once, dressed as milk
maid, he milked a cow
- anything to promote
reading.
"He lead us to an A
school," she said. "He was
always fair and he was a
friend as well as a princi-
pal."
Debra Robarts, worked
as Rankin's. secretary at
Melrose Park Elementary
for eight years and also
knew him as a close" fam-
ily friend.
"He' was a very- com-
passionate and caring per-
son," Robarts said. "He
was a great leader. The
students, faculty and staff
really loved him. He was
a friend to each one of us,


not just our administra-
tor."
Robarts said Rankin
taught all of those who
were under his shift that
they were looked up to by
the community, and that
they should be there for
the kids in every capacity
the children needed.
"Anything that they
needed we were to put
them first," she said. "He
always reminded us that
our family was all of us
there at school, including
the students. We were ,a
family at Melrose Park
- all of us. We cared for
each other. I think it real-
ly showed in his last few
days at Hospice, many of
his staff members visited
him, his wife and son. We
believe that his soul has


already met the angels.
Many of the staff from
CHS when he was there
for about 25 years as an
assistant principal showed
his wife and son an out-
pouring of love."
Rankin's compas-
sion didn't end when
the school day was over.
Rankin was a member of
First Presbyterian Church
of Lake City and Robarts
noted he always made sure
the elderly who needed
transportation made it to
and from church.
"He's just truly missed.
He was a daddy to me
for 20 years," she said.
"God only takes the best,
that's why he picked him.
He was truly an awesome
individual, one of the ones
that we'll miss for a long


time."
Columbia County
Superintendent Mike
Millikin called Rankin's
death a loss to the local
educational community.
"I'm very saddened at
the loss of Mr. Rankin,
whose educational career
went from high school to
elementary school in
fact I knew him when I
was coming through high
school as a student,"
Millikin said. "I'rm truly
saddened by the loss. He

Yellowing hair

could come from

uncommon disease


DEAR DR. GOTT: I am
writing in reference to the
lady with white hair that is
turning yellow. I, too, had
the same problem only
to be diagnosed shortly
after with the autoimmune
disease dermatomyositis.
This was the cause of my
yellowing hair. I am not
saying that she has this,
but it is another potential
cause. I would also appre-
ciate your opinion on this
disease. I enjoy your col-
umn very much.

DEAR READER:
Dermatomyositis is an
uncommon inflammatory
disease that causes a dis-
tinctive skin rash and mus-
cle weakness. It can occur
at any age, but is most
common in adults in their
late 40s to early 60s, as
well as in children between
the ages of 5 and 15.
Women are affected more
often than men. It may
appear suddenly, develop
gradually, or take several
weeks or months. Periods
of remission where symp-
toms improve or disappear
may occur. The skin rash
is violet or a dusky red and
most commonly occurs on
the chest, back, face and
eyelids and around the
nails, knuckles, elbows and
knees. It is often patchy
and may have bluish-
purple discolorations. The
rash is typically the first
- and in some cases only
- symptom.
Muscle weakness
occurs symmetrically (on
both sides of the body).
It generally affects the
neck, shoulders, upper
arms, hips and thighs. It
is progressive, meaning it
worsens over time. Pain
may be experienced by up
to half of all sufferers and
is generally mild.
Other symptoms and
complications may include
difficulty swallowing, mus-
cle and joint pain, fatigue,
fever, weight loss, short-
ness of breath, gastroin-
testinal ulcers and perfora-
tions (most common in
children), breathing diffi-
culties, heart inflammation,
pneumonia, aspiration,
hardened deposits of cal-
cium under the skin (most
common in children) and
more. Pregnancy may
worsen symptoms during
active periods and increas-
es the risk of premature
or stillbirths. When in
remission, these risks are
substantially lower.
Dermatomyositis may
occur with other condi-
tiors such as lung or

cardiovascular diseases,
Raynaud's and connective
tissue disorders, including
lupus, Sjogren's, scleroder-
ma or rheumatoid arthritis.
The first line of treat-
ment is oral corticoste-
roids. Often high doses are
given and tapered down to
a lower maintenance dose.
Improvement is commonly
experienced within two to
four weeks, but therapy
may be necessary for
years. Occasionally, topical
steroids may be used.
Other medications may
be used in conjunction with
steroids or alone. This is
typically done if symptoms
fail to improve or side
effects become severe.
Corticosteroid-sparing
agents such as azathioprine
or methotrexate are then
considered. Anti-malarial
drugs, immunosuppres-
sants, the anti-rejection drug
tacrolimus and over-the-
counter or prescription pain
relievers may be beneficial.
. Antibody therapy known
as IVIg (intravenous immu-
noglobulin) may be consid-
ered. High doses can block.
the autoantibodies (respon-
sible for the inflammation)
from attacking. Rituximab
depletes a certain type of
lymphocyte and showed
improvement in a small
study.
Physical and speech
therapy can help by encour-
aging regaining muscle
strength, assisting with
swallowing, movement and
more. Surgery to remove
painful calcium deposits
may also be recommended.
At home, under the
approval and direction of
a physician or physical
therapist, exercise can
help maintain and regain
muscle strength. It is
important not to overdo
or push yourself because
this can set progress
back. Resting whenever
tired is vital. Also, apply-
ing sunscreen whenever
going outside is beneficial
because areas affected by
the rash are more sensitive
to the effects of the sun.

Regimen drastically

shortens TB treatment


Study: Egyptian princess was


first to have heart disease


By MARIA CHENG
AP Medical Writer

LONDON An
Egyptian princess who
lived more than 3,500
years ago is the oldest
khown person to have had
clogged arteries, dispel-
ling the myth that heart
disease is a product of
modern society, a new
study says.
To determine how com-
mon heart disease was
in ancient Egypt, scien-
tists performed computer
scans on 52 mummies
in Cairo and the United
States. Among those that
still had heart tissue, 44
had chunks of calcium
stuck to their arteries -
indicating clogging.
"Atherosclerosis clearly
existed more than 3,000
years ago," said Adel
Allam, a cardiology profes-
sor at Al Azhar University
in Cairo, who led the study
with Gregory Thomas,
director of nuclear car-
diology education at the
University of California in
Irvine. "We cannot blame
this disease on modern
civilization."
The research was pre-
sented Tuesday at a con-
ference on heart imaging
in Amsterdam.
Allam and colleagues
found the Egyptian prin-
cess Ahmose-Meryet-
Amon, who lived in
Thebes (now Luxor)
between 1540 and 1550
B.C., had calcium depos-
its in two main coronary
arteries, making her the
oldest mummy found
with heart disease. The
princess' father and
brother were both pha-
raohs. The mummy had
pierced ears and a large
incision in her left side
made by embalmers
to remove her internal
organs.
Allam doubted she
would have received
much treatment beyond
maybe taking special
herbs or honey. "If she
were my patient today,
she would get open
heart surgery," he said.
He added the princess'
clogged arteries looked
remarkably similar to
heart disease in contem-
porary Egyptians. The
43 younger mummies
with calcium deposits
showed a range of heart
and artery problems.
Experts say that dur-
ing the princess' life-
time, beef, pork, mutton,
antelope, duck and other
meats were readily avail-
able in the royal courts.
Egyptians didn't eat
much fish but ate many
different kinds of fruits
and vegetables. Salt was


also likely used to pre-
serve their food.
Joep Perk, a profes-
sor of health sciences at
Linnaeus University in
Sweden and a spokesman
for the European Society
of Cardiology, said the
heart disease discovered
in the mummies was
probably due to the rich
diet and lack of exercise
among the Egyptian elite.
He was not linked to the
mummy research.
"The pharaohs and other
royalty probably had more
fat in their diet than the
average Egyptian," he said.
"The sculptures and hiero-
glyphs may show people
who were very thin and
beautiful, but the reality
may have been different"
He added there may
have been other factors,
like the stress of holding
onto power and genetic
factors that could have
made the Egyptian ruling
class more susceptible to
,heart disease.
He said Egyptian roy-
als were more likely to
be killed by heart prob-
lems after surviving other
infections that would have
killed poorer Egyptians.
"They simply had the good
luck to live long enough to
develop heart disease." .

ATLANTA Health offi-
cials on Monday celebrated
a faster treatment for peo-
ple who have tuberculosis
but aren't infectious, after
investigators found a new
combination of pills knocks
out the disease in three
months instead of nine.
That means more people
are likely to finish their treat-
ment for latent tuberculosis,
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention officials said.
For decades, people
infected with TB bacteria


0


but not ill have been treated
with a special TB pill, iso-
niazid, taken once a day for
nine months. It's been the
standard regimen despite
problems getting people to
take the pill every day.
But in one of the larg-
est federal trials to exam-
ine preventive tuberculo-
sis therapy, investigators
found that another, regimen
was just as effective. Just
once a week and for just
three months, patients took
a larger dose of isoniazid
and also a dose of another
antibiotic, rifapentine.

For his golf, Tiger Woods
is about to fall out of the top
10 in the world for the first
time in 14 years. For his
star power, he still ranks
ahead of any other athlete.
Woods, whose last win
came 18 months ago at the
Australian Masters, will
drop to at least No. 11 in
the next world ranking pub-
lished Monday. It will be
the first time he is out of


the top 10 since he was.
No. 13 on April 6, 1997, the
week before he won the
Masters for the first of his
14 majors.
Forbes, meanwhile, says
he's still the No. 1 celebrity
in the sports world.
Woods checks in at No. 6
on Forbes' annual "Celebrity
100" list of the most pow-
erful people or groups in

quarterback with a year of
experience and a Division
I receiver led Fort White

Jackson to concentrate on
Sthe Indians' passing attack
in the spring.
It worked.
In the four quarters of
the Red & Black game, the
offense scored six touch
downs and all came through
the air.
"That was our focus, to
see if we could throw it a
little bit," Jackson said.
The success of the pass-
ing game left defensive
coordinator Ken Snider
muttering a little bit
"We're young and .we
have to grow up in a hurry,"
Snider said.
Lost in all the throw-
ing was that the Indians'
defense did well against the
run. For the four quarter
against first-teameis and

five running plays of 10

INDIANS: Host Orange Park Friday

had at least that many sacks
and turned in two intercep-
tions and three fumbles.
"I was pleased with our
run defense," Snider said.
"We need to work on our
blitz scheme and learn to
get off blocks better."
With Orange Park High
coming in for the spring
game on Friday, it is that
run defense that will be
challenged.
"We are looking for
(Orange Park head coach)
Danny Green to play sound,
smash-mouth football and
run it right at you," Snider
said. "He has a good run-
ning back and normally
has a stable of them. He
has good team speed and a
huge offensive line."
The Raiders were in Class
6A the past two seasons,
while Fort White was in 2B
so the roster size discrep-
ancy will be large.
"We dressed 108 for our
.imtrasquad game, and we
will be bringing 64-65 to
Fort White," Green said.
"We have some big kids on
our offensive line, but they
are very young and inexpe-
rienced."
Green's top running back
is Eric Heyward, who is
a D-1 prospect. The big


man on the offensive line is
Diamante Brown, who will
play some nose guard on
defense. Green also likes
linebacker Jacob Kirk.
Snider said the challenge
will help because there are
a couple of teams on Fort
White's 2011 schedule that



Unscramble these four Jumbles,
one letter to each square,
to form four ordinary words. _

run a similar offense.
"We will get a taste of the
Wing-T offense on a big
scale," Snider said. "What
they do, they do well."
The Indians will wel-
come the Raiders to
Arrowhead Stadium at
7 p.m. Friday.

Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki (41) of Germany dribbles past Oklahoma City
Thunder center Kendrick Perkins during the second half of Game 1 of the NBA basketball
Western Conference finals Tuesday in Dallas. The Mavericks won 121-112.


Nowitzki too tough to


guard, but easy to overlook


By JIM LITKE
Associated Press

Dirk Nowitzki has never
been an easy sell for the
NBA.
He does his best work
far from the basket, rare for
someone so tall. He doesn't
dunk enough to make the
highlight reels. His facial
expressions range between
mildly peeved and slightly
surprised, and most nights
it's hard to tell one from
the other.
Beyond eye-popping
numbers, he offered the
TV talking heads hyp-
ing this season's Wester-n.
Conference, finals against c
Oklahoma City very little
to work with.
But without Kobe's
Lakers or Tim Duncan's
Spurs in the finals this
season, Nowitzki became
the story by default. It was
about him and the aging

Mavericks getting one last
shot at redemption for a
collapse against Miami in
the 2006 NBA Finals. This
was supposed to be their
last shot at a championship
.before Kevin Durant and
the Thunder emerged as
the new power out West.
Nowitzki shredded that
script Tuesday night.
So much was made about
the needed rest he got after
Dallas swept the Lakers
that it seemed as if he was
leading the cast from the
movie "Cocoon" instead of
a still very capable veteran
team. Nowitzki, started by
making 1i0' bf his first 11
.,:shots --. he finished 12 of
15 from the field and
knocked down every one
of the 24 he launched from
the free-throw line.
After his 48 points, six
rebounds, four assists and
four blocks propelled the
Mavericks to a comfort-

able 121-112 win in Game
1, someone asked Durant
what made stopping
Nowitzki so difficult
"He's a 7-foot jump
shooter," Durant began.
"And he shoots one-legged
fadeaways."
He obviously didn't think
it warranted any further
explanation, so Durant sim-
ply shrugged, tlhn added,
"Yeah."
Durant was 10 years old
when Nowitzki, a month
shy of 33, played his first
game in the NBA But his
matter-of-fact response
speaks volumes.
Durant is shorter at 6-
9 and much quicker, but
like Nowitzki, largely a
jump-shooter who routine-
ly draws the other team's
defensive focus. Nowitzki
may be as close to Larry
Bird as the NBA has to
offer, but Durant is not far
behind.

DEAR ABBY: May I re-
spond to "Bound for College"
(April 9), the high school
senior who is distressed be-
cause she may have to go to
a state university?
This is America, the land
of opportunity, NOT the land
of entitlement. A college edu-
cation is a luxury, not a right.
How fortunate she is to have
parents who can send her to
college. It is my hope that
her father does get that job
at the university. What an ex-
cellent benefit he will have
to get reduced tuition for his
offspring.
If, however, that is not
good enough for her, it is her
right to refuse that gift. Then
she may go to the school of
her choice AND pay for it
herself. With the cost of tu-
ition today, that will be quite
an undertaking. There are a
number of options: student
loans, grants, scholarships,
a job or an enlistment in the
military.
As you mentioned, Abby,
in your response, education
is what you make of it. My
suggestion to "Bound for
College" is, lose the attitude
of entitlement, look at how
blessed you are, rethink
your priorities and make the
most of your opportunities.
- MIKE M. IN BLOOMS-
BURG, PA.
DEAR MIKE: Thank
you for your letter. Readers


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com
unanimously agreed that
"Bound." needs to make the
most of the opportunities
that come her way and start
thinking and acting like an
adult. 'Read on:
DEAR ABBY: I could
have written the same letter
years ago. The similarities
are uncanny. I was accepted
to my dream school, but due
to my family's financial diffi-
culties, I ended up attending
my backup school, one of the
largest public institutions in
the country. '
During the first semes-
ter, I was bitter and angry.
Slowly but surely, I began
to appreciate the benefits
unique to a large state uni-
versity. I enrolled in an
honors academic program,
which allowed me to receive
a rigorous education from
an amazing faculty. I became
exposed to people from dif-
ferent cultures with differing
perspectives. There were
numerous student organiza-
tions and clubs. I found new
hobbies and became active
in causes that were impor-
tant to me. Although I was


worried about the school's
party reputation, I quickly
found other students who
felt the same way I did.
"Bound," the college ex-
perience will be what you
make of it. For me, it was
instrumental in shaping my
future. I took advantage of
the many resources avail-
able on campus. It opened
up avenues for me and, most
important, helped me to dis-
cover nAyself. I will be start-
ing graduate school as a fi-
nancially independent adult,
and I can finally do it on my
own terms. SOPHIA K.,
ARLINGTON, TEXAS
DEAR ABBY: You can
party at any school, and you
can get an education at any
school. To a large extent,
you get out what you put in.
Yes, there may be distrac-
tions on some campuses,
but there will always be aca-
demically inclined students
and opportunities if one
looks for them. The "fit" of a
school can't really be deter-
mined until one gets there.
So "Bound" should go where
it is affordable and keep an
open mind. She may find
opportunities she has not
yet considered. L.C. IN
CHARLESTON, ILL.

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Experience new
lifestyles. Express your feel-
ings and discuss your plans
with the people you care
about most. Taking control
of the. influences in your
life is the first step to find-
ing happiness and peace of
mind. *****
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): There is money
to be made or a life-altering
change heading your way.
You will see a shift take
place that will lead to long-
term improvements. There
is something to be learned
from someone with a dif-
ferent background or life
experience. ***
GEMINI (May21-June
20): A partnership must be
brought out into the open.
Secret meetings or hiding
what's going on in your per-
sonal life will only make it
more difficult to share your
situation as time passes by.
Move on quickly from a no-
win relationship. ***
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Someone you
have known in the past can
help you regarding work
and employment. The un-
certainty you have been
going through will change
if you aren't too proud to
accept help. Don't let some-
one close to you ruin your
day with negativity. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): Combine business


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

with industry events or en-
tertainment. Opportunities
are present and it will be
your charm and friendly na-
ture that will endear you to,
those you meet and will ul-
timately want to work with
you. Change is apparent.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Open up and express
how you feel .about what
others are doing. This is a
great day to find solutions
to any problems you might
have or to get to the bottom
of a situation that has been
left open-ended. Love is in
the stars. **
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Put more emphasis
on home and personal in-
vestments. Opportunities
are present but you have to
be prepared if you want to
take advantage. An added
responsibility may seem
daunting but, if you do
what's required, you will
put it behind you quickly
and efficiently. ****
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Partnerships
will make the biggest differ-
ence in both your personal
and professional lives. Look
at those who complement
you the most mentally,
physically, financially and
emotionally. Reopen the


possibilities of an old idea
or project you put on the
back burner. -***
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Don't let
confusion or deceit stand
in the way :-fQAneessary
change, to,the way you live
your life. Emotions will be
close to the surface but fac-
ing .the facts and making
adjustments are a must.
Socialize and make new
friends. *** '
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): The very
things that have held you
back in the past are now
welcoming you with open
arms. You have nothing
to fear and everything to
gain by making your moves
and putting your long-term
plans into action. *** -
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): A work-related
matter has the potential to
turn into an opportunity.
Don't let a bully or some-
one who doesn't have your
best interests at heart stand
in your way. Don't let a new
or a past lover confuse mat-
ters. Question the motives
of others today. ****
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Be realistic
about what you can and can-
not do. Look back at your
past record and recognize
who has been at fault be-
fore you write off someone
you need in your life now.
Forgive and forget. **

Three baseball teams

vying for the SEC title


By PETE IACOBELu
Associated Press
COLUMBIA, S.C. -
There have been several
seasons when 20 victories
were enough to win the
Southeastern Conference
baseball title.
S"Not going to work
this time," South Carolina
coach Ray Tanner said
Wednesday.
The league's three
powerhouse programs
- Florida, Vanderbilt and
the Gamecocks are. tied
atop the league with 20-7
records entering the final
regular-season weekend.
"There's going to be a


lot of emotional baseball
played," Vanderbilt coach
Tim Corbin said this
week.
. Florida (39-14), the
defending SEC champi-
ons, closes the season at
home against Kentucky.
Vanderbilt (42-8) trav-
els to Georgia while the
Gamecocks (42-11) will
play at Alabama. All three
series start Thursday.
The SEC says there
could be co-champions
or tri-champions by the
end of the weekend. The
Gamecocks, though, hold
the edge in a two- or three-
way tie for the top seed in
next week's SEC tourna-


ment after winning two of
three against the Gators
and Commodores earlier
this year.
Florida beat Vanderbilt
two of three last weekend
and would get the higher
seed if they finish tied.
Tanner serves on the
NCAA tournament selec-
tion committee and on
a recent conference call
was asked about the SEC.
"Everybody's tough," he
answered. "This confer-
ence is grueling."
Especially in the East.
Florida, Vanderbilt
and South Carolina were
picked 1-2-3 in the in divi-
sional preseason rankings.

athlete behind Woods at No.
10. Kobe Bryant of the Los
Angeles Lakers is No. 14.
Forbes estimated Woods'
total earnings last year to be
$75 million, making him the
highest-paid athlete. The


magazine put Bryant's earn-
ings for the last 12 months
at $53 million, followed by.
James at $48 million and
four-time major winner Phil
Mickelson at $47 million.
Woods won't be able to


earners


improve on his golf ranking
anytime soon.
He started the year at
No. 2 and has been steadily
dropping points.' Woods
withdrew from The Players'
Championship last week.
