Sales tax holiday

signed into law


Certain items will
be tax exempt
from Aug. 12-14.
By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.com
Parents can look forward
to a little help financially
during back to school shop-
ping this year.
Gov. Rick Scott signed
into law legislation creat-
ing the sales tax holiday for
2011.
The holiday will run Aug.
12-14, and





suppies up to $15.

The 2011 sales tax holi-
day was sponsored by Rep.
Elizabeth Porter (R-Lake
City) in the House through
HB 733 and in the Senate
by Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff (R-
Fort Lauderdale).
"It has been such a suc-
cess in the past and very
well received by the gen-
eral populace," Porter said.
"This is certainly a time in
our history and economy
where parents can use a
little bit of a break, particu-
larly in school supplies."
The holiday was placed
on hiatus in 2008 and


2009, but returned last
year.
In the past it has been as
much as 10 days long before
being reduced to two week-
ends and the current time'
frame, she said.
"Just because of the econ-
omy we couldn't afford to
do quite as much," Porter
said.
Items exempted during
the holiday will include
shoes, clothing, book bags,
paper, pencils, and calcula-
tors, she said. There is no
overall cap, just a per item
price.
Legislators are trying to
be responsible stewards of
taxpayer dollars, which is
needed to run the state,
Porter said.
"We also want to do the
right thing and give a break
to parents when it comes'
to something as crucial as
children and school sup-
plies," she said.
In a release, Porter
thanked the governor for
signing the legislation into
law to bring the sales tax
holiday back for 2011.
"This law will help pro-
vide relief to Florida's fami-
lies who are struggling to
make, ends meet as they
begin to prepare for this
upcoming school year,"9
she said. "I would also like
to thank my colleagues
in the House and Senate
for their support of this
legislation."

FINAL LANDING


Second-to-last
NASA flight
touches down..
BY MARCIA DUNN
AP Aerospace Writer
CAPE CANAVERAL
N ASA's 30-
year shuttle
program
inched clos-
er to the end
Wednesday, wrapping up
its second-to-last mission
and moving Atlantis to
the launch pad for next
month's final flight
Endeavour and its six
astronauts returned to
Earth after more than
two weeks in space, glid-
ing don the runway one
last time during a middle-
of-the-night landing. A
few miles away, Atlantis
reached the launch pad
at Kennedy Space Center
for the grand finale in five
weeks.
Endeavour com-
mander Mark Kelly
- whose wife, wounded
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords,
remained behind at her
rehab center in Houston
- brought Endeavour to
a stop before hundreds of
onlookers that included
the four Atlantis astro-
nauts.
"It's sad to see her land
for the last time," Kelly
said, "but she really has a
great legacy."
Endeavour, the young-
est of the shuttles with
123 million miles over 25
flights, is now bound for a
museum in California.
A few hours earlier,
thousands of employees
and their families lined
the route Tuesday night
as Atlantis slowly crept
toward the launch pad,
bathed in bright lights.
"We're going to look
upon this final mission as
a celebration of all that
the space shuttle has
accomplished over its 30-
year life span," Atlantis'
commander, Christopher
Ferguson, said as he
waved toward his ship,
which will make the 135th
and last shuttle flight

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS


Plummer, 81, still relishing the actor's life


NEW YORK
wan McGregor was hav-
ing a hard time keeping
up with Christopher
Plummer.
At the suggestion of
director Mike Mills, McGregor had
brought his 81-year-old co-star to
Barney's in Los Angeles to pick up a
scarf for Plummer's elderly gay char-
acter in their film "Begiinners." But
Plummer had other designs.
"Christopher only wanted to
get skinny black jeans," -recalls
McGregor. "That was his main goal
in life. When we got there, he asked
where the jeans department was,
and off he went to find skinny jeans."
That one of the finest living inter-
preters of Shakespeare and one of
the few remaining greats of classical
acting was hell-bent on procuring a
hipster staple might seem odd. But
then again, Plummer has seldom
acceded to the stereotypes of old
age.
"I'm glad (my ambition) is still
there," he said in a recent interview.
"If it faded, what's there to live for?
It makes you appreciate other things
if you keep working at your job and
you love your job. Too many people
in the world are unhappy with their
lot. And then they retire and they
become vegetables. I think retire-
ment in any profession is death, so
I'm determined to keep crackin'."
In "Beginners," which opens in
theaters Friday, Plummer plays Hal,
a 75-year-old who comes out of the
closet after his longtime wife dies,
and shortly before terminal cancer
sets in.

Williams' newsmagazine
gets Hartman as leader
NEW YORK NBC News is
bringing a veteran CBS and BBC
journalist on board to run Brian
Williams' new newsmagazine, which
it hopes to get on the air this fall.


Actors Christopher Plummer (left), Melanie Laurent and Ewan McGregor stop for a
photograph at the special screening of their film, 'Beginners' Tuesday in New York.


The network
said Wednesday
it has hired Rome
Hartman to be exec-
utive producer of its
newsmagazine.
Hartman worked
Hartman at CBS News for
more than 24 years,
much of it at "60 Minutes." He
launched Katie Couric's newscast
there. He most recently developed
and produced "BBC World News
America."

Filmmaker, professor
Adolfas Mekas dies at 85
POUGHKEEPSIE Adolfas
Mekas, a member of
the avant-garde New
American Cinema
S--movement of the
1960s and longtime
professor of film at
New York's Bard
College, has died at
Mekas age 85.


The college said Wednesday the
Lithuanian-born artist died Tuesday
at a Poughkeepsie hospital. The'
cause of death was not released.
In the U.S., he and his brother
Jonas founded the journal Film
Culture and the Filmmakers'
Cooperative independent cinema

"Hallelujah the Hills" played at the
Cannes Film festival in 1963.

From staff reports

Southside Community

break with a bang.
The annual end of
school bash is 2:30-5 p.m.

The Columbia County
Health Department is
sponsoring activities


for the bash, which will
include bounce houses
and a water slide, said
Wayne Jernigan, recre-
ation supervisor. Popcorn
and drinks will also be
available.
"It's for the children to
start enjoying their sum-
mer and let go of some
steam," he said.
All elementary-aged


students are invited to the
bash. Call the center for
more information at 758-
5448. The center is locat-

BEAR: Spotted north of Lake City

also explained that mov-
ing other attractants in
the yard would help keep
the bear away. We're not
anticipating trapping this
bear at this point in time,
but we'll keep an eye on
the situation."
The complaints came in
Tuesday and were called
into the Lake City FWC
office Tuesday afternoon.
FWC officials also han-
dled a situation in Alachua
County Tuesday where an
adult, male Florida black


bear was seen traveling
with an adult female.
Biologists were able to
shoot both bears with
bean bags and the bears
took off running towards
the woods.
'"That's what we want-
ed," Parker said.
Parker noted that' its
mating .season for the
bears and the bears are
often searching for mates,
increasing the chance of
them coming into, contact
with the general public..


Anyone needing to
report a nuisance bear,
bear that is acting aggres-
sively or threatening a
person or pet, can call the
FWCv wildlife alert num-
ber to report it at 1-888-
404-3922.

levies fees for court facil-
ity uses, Williams said.
"When we first did it,
we didn't have the option
to do more than $15," he
said. "Now, the state is
allowing you tb increase
it'"
Money generated by the
fees is restricted, Williams
said, and has to be used for
court facilities. Currently,
the county puts the money
in its general fund and ear-
marks it for facilities main-
tenance, he said.
"And we would do the
same if the increase, is
. approved," Williams said.
Doubling the surcharge
would put money toward


the court facilities and free
up other money for other
county uses, Williams
said.

mendous expense in the

this would be one way that
we could put money in
specifically for that. pur-
pose and take other mon-_.
ies, such as property tax
revenue, out and use for
other purposes."
Williams also noted
that through the increase,
those paying the fees will
bear more of the cost bur-
den for the court facili-
ties..
"The. people who gener-


ate the need at the court-
house the idea is to
shift more of the respon-
sibility to them," he said.
"There are many citizens
Who pay taxes and many
of them never dark the
door of a courthouse, and
yet they're paying the bulk
of the cost. These are pro-
grams that were designed
to reduce those costs to
free up that ad valorem."

lasted 16 days and com-
pleted NASA's role in the
space 'station construction
effort that began more than
a dozen years ago.
The crew all experi-
enced spacemen depart-
ed the 220-mile-high orbit-
ing outpost over the week-
end. They installed, a $2
billion cosmic ray detector,
an extension beam and a
platform full of spare parts,
enough to keep the station
operating in the shuttle-less
decade ahead.
NASA is leaving the
Earith-to-orbit business
behind to focus on expedi-
tions to asteroids and Mars.
Private companies hope
to pick up the slack for
cargo and crew hauls to the
space station. Until then,
Americans will continue
hitching rides to the sta-
tion aboard Russian Soyuz
capsules at the cost of tens
of millions of dollars a seat.
Kelly was the last astro-
naut to exit Endeavour.
He .and his crew posed
for pictures and signed
autographs on the run-
way. Astronaut Gregory
Chamitoff was so wobbly
from weightlessness that
he had to be supported by
two colleagues, and he later
skipped a morning news
conference.
As Kelly thanked his
crewmates live on NASA
TV for their flawless per-
formance, co-pilot Gregory
Johnson leaned over to
shout into the mic, "And
our commander, we want
to thank him, too." Johnson
and the rest of the crew
were openly supportive of
Kelly's decision to stick
with the flight, despite his
wife's serious head injury.
Giffords was shot during
an assassination attempt in
Tucson, Ariz., in January,
but recovered well enough
to attend the May 16 launch.
The congresswoman did
not return to Florida for
the landing but Kelly's two
teenage daughters were
on hand, along with his


twin brother, Scott, also an
astronaut
Six hours after the 2:35
a.m. touchdown, Kelly
said he hadn't yet -called
Giffords because of the
earlyhour. "WhatI'mgoing
to say to her?" he said in
response to a reporter's
question. "Really miss her
and can't wait to get back
there tomorrow to see
her."
The astronautswill return
to Houston on Thursday
for a big welcome-home
ceremony. Giffords is not
expected to attend, said her
chief of staff, Pia Carusone,
who also confirmed that
Kelly called his wife.
Built- to replace the
destroyed Challenger,
Endeavour first soared in
1992 on a satellite-rescue
mission that saw a record-
setting three spacewalk-
ers grab the wayward
craft. Other highlights for

fleet: the first repair mis-
sion to the Hubble Space
Telescope in 1993, to fix its
blurred vision, and NASA's
first flight to assemble the
space station in 1998.
Its final journey featured
fout spacewalks, the last
ones to be conducted by
a shuttle crew. One of the
spacewalking astronauts,
Mike Fincke, set a U.S.
career record of 382 days
in space.
The flight also rnarked
the first departure of a
Russian Soyuz capsule dur-
ing a shuttle visit to the
space station, and the first
call to space by a pope.
Two Italians were aboard
the shuttle-station complex
when Pope Benedict XVI
phoned from the Vatican.
The official tally for
Endeavour, after 19 years of
flight, was 170 crew mem-

4,671 orbits of Earth and
122,883,151 miles.

OPINION

A


AN
OPINION


Ohio

State,

left with

black eye

F or years, the mes-
sage from big-time
college athletics has
been the same: Win
big and you can get
away with just about anything.
Rules and principles? Well,
they're for losers. Never mind
that college is supposed to pre-
pare young adults for life.
The belated resignation
Monday of one of the nation's
top football coaches, Ohio
State's Jim Tressel, adds a col-
orful new touch to the story.
During his decade as the
Buckeyes' coach, Tressel cul-
tivated the image of the strait-
laced Midwestern do-gooder.
He wore red vests and insisted
that his players sing their alma
mater after every victory. He
garnered a higher winning
percentage than the legend-
ary Woody Hayes and, to the
delight of students and alumni,
beat archrival Michigan nine
times out of 10.
In the past year, it all started
to unravel like a cheap sweater.
In April 2010, Tressel got an
e-mail from a Columbus attor-
ney, alerting him that players
were selling signed memora-
bilia (an NCAA violation) to a
tattoo parlor owner who was
under investigation for drug
trafficking. Tressel forwarded
the information to an associate
of star quarterback Terrelle
Pryor but didn't inform his
superiors or the NCAA.
In December, Ohio State was
forced to acknowledge that
Pryor and five other players
had indeed traded champion-
ship rings and other sports
memorabilia for money and
discounted tattoos. The play-
ers were suspended with a
catch. Under pressure not to
mar the all-important Sugar
Bowl, Ohio State sought, and
th6 NCAA acquiesced, to, a
delay. Ohio State won, and the
players' suspensions were put
off until the fall. In other words,
a sham.
After the Sugar Bowl victory,
school officials learned that
Tressel had covered up his
knowledge of wrongdoing.

How the Americas


became the Middle East


Back in February,
Sarah Palin tweeted
about the overthrow
of Egyptian
president Hosni
Mubarak through a popular
uprising. First there were the
trapped Chilean miners, she
said, and now the Egyptian
disturbances. "What other
drama will affect the Middle
East?"
Chile? Middle East? Isn't
Egypt in North Africa? Actually,
there is a kind of twisted logic
to this.
'e week following
Palin's tweet, U.S. Army
Undersecretary Joseph W.
Westphal said at the University
of Utah, according to the The
Deseret News in Utah, that
the U.S. Army might end up
fighting insurgents in Mexico.
He was making the point that
future battles might not take
place in the Middle East ,
Westphal was the most senior
U.S. official to use "insurgency"
to describe the drug cartels.
And he raised the possibilities
of "armed and fighting" U.S.
soldiers "on our border, in
violation of our Constitution, or
to have to send them across the
border."
He admitted having shared
his views with the White House,
although his remark, he said,
was only a personal expression
and not the administration's
viewpoint. Later, Westphal
retracted his comment and,
apologized for it.
The underlying point,
however, is that military
preparations have been
underway for a long time.
It turns out that NATO,
the North American Treaty
Organization formed in 1949,
took an important step after the
September 2001 Al- Qaeda attack


. Jose De La Isla
joseisia3@yahoo.com

on the United States when
Article 5 of the NATO charter.
took effect for the first time. It
deems an attack on one is an
attack on all member nations.
Since then, troops have been
deployed to Afghanistan. Most
recently, NATO has assumed
leadership of the Libyan"
conflict to overthrow Moammar
Gadhafi.
NATO's 28 members account
for more than 70 percent of
the world's defense spending.
"The U.S. alone accounts for
43 percent, with the United
Kingdom, France, Germany
and Italy providing another
15 percent of the world's total
military spending.
LuIs Gutierrez Esparza, in
this city's highly respected
newspaper, Excelsior, deferred
in his column to a German
authority, Muller Mertens, who
said NATO has Latin America in
its scope. The alliance already
has 29 military bases, stretching
from El Paso, Texas, to Tierra
del Fuego, the archipelago just
above Antarctica that includes
parts of Chile and Argentina.
(I know this is a lot of
geography, but I can assure
you none of this territory is the
Middle East)
Ten' of the bases are
reportedly secret. Gutierrez
Esparza said the think-tank
which he heads, Latin American
Circle of International Studies


(CLAEI, by its Spanish initials),
knows those bases are kept
secret even from some national
congresses. The number of U.S.
soldiers deployed is also secret.
Sixteen of the 29 are U.S., and
the United Kingdom maintains
three in the Falklands, South
Georgia and the South
Sandwich Islands. The air base
in Palanqueto, Colombia, is a
point of departure to Africa,
possibly Libya.
Honduras, Panama and.El
Salvador also have bases. The
U.S. fourth Fleet patrols Latin
America with nuclear arms
despite the Treaty of Tlatelolco
of 1967 that makes Latin
'America a nuclear-free zone.
Officially, most of the premise
of having U.S. and NATO bases
is related to narcotrafficking
control. But Reiner Braun of
the International Association of
Lawyers Against Nuclear Arms
said they pose a threat to Latin
American governments who
choose an independent route
to development That is why,
according to GutIerrez Esparza,
the governments of Ecuador
and Bolivia closed two bases.
Perhaps some of this
background explains why could
make such an odd statement
that did not make sense at
the time. He said a U.S. Army
intervention in Mexico was
conceivable, but it wasn't
"just about drugs and illegal
immigrants."
When he said it, it sounded
a little wacky, like what Sarah
Palin might say. But now the
Americas are starting to look
like a Middle East or a North
Africa setting.

ANOTHER OPINION

Fiddling while Medicare goes bankrupt


Democrats scored
a political victory
last Tuesday by
winning a spe-
cial election in a
Republican congressional bas-
tion in upstate New York where
Medicare was the main issue.
They should enjoy it while they
can because this momentary tri-
umph will turn to ashes if they
think they can win next year's
national elections on the slogan
that they did nothing to stop the
soaring cost of Medicare.
Poll after poll shows that the
American people are worried
about the budget and the uusus-
tainable national debt Medicare
is the biggest contributor to the
debt and the annual budget deficit
Doing nothing is not an option.
But too many Americans like


to have their cake and eat it,
too. When proposed cuts affect
the benefits they receive from
entitlements like Medicare
and Social Security, they balk.
Don't touch my Medicare! In
New York's 26th Congressional
District race, Democrats suc-
cessfully preyed on those fears
by claiming the GOP's reform
plan would victimize seniors.
In fact, the plan authored
by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc.,
wouldn't affect seniors over 55
and would not take full effect
until 2021. Claiming that it
amounts to throwing Grandma
off the train is sheer demagogu-
ery. It's as phony as the notion
of "death panels" leveled at
President Obama's Affordable
Care Act ("Obamacare").
Yet even without the hype,


Rep. Ryan's plan is flawed *
and impractical. It changes a
government program into a
limited voucher plan that would
leave many future seniors
short of adequate medical
coverage. It shifts costs to
seniors rather than controlling
the costs. And it's based on
a number of accounting gim-
micks: Presumed "savings"
are achieved by saying the
government's contributions to
Medicare and Medicaid won't
grow at a rate greater than infla-
tion.
That'll be the day. Healthcare
costs grow at a rate several
times greater than inflation. Any
plan that doesn't take that into
account is a fantasy.

NCAA out

of bounds

in limiting,

athletes

at the Division I
level is all about
the purity of the ;
contest Unlike '-'
the professional ranks,
sportsmanship reigns here in
all its glory. It matters not that '
you won or lost but how you '
played the game.
What a noble sentiment!
What a wonderful ideal! What '
unmitigated nonsense! ,,
If you believe such a fantasy,
I congratulate you for having
lived a sheltered life. No doubt
little bunnies friskily gambol in
your garden. Bluebirds nest in
your mailbox. Your chaste eyes
never alight on the newspaper
headline that says '"Tressel
Out as Ohio.State's Coach.".
In his 10 years at the
college, Jim Tressel did an
excellent job in the football
part of his work description.
He brought victory after
victory, including Ohio State's
first national championship in
34 years.
This success made him
excel in the other part of the t>
job, the one not explicitly
stated lest it disturb the
sentimental fiction of college
football.
As with all good coaches, he
was a major executive in the
university's corporate
money-making operations. He
was the CPO -Chief Pigskin .i
Officer.
But college football is a
strange sort of big business.
Its players are forced to live '
like members of a religious
order.
They must be sworn to
chastity, sobriety, poverty and
non-violence (except on the
field) with no memorabilia
trading or cheap tattoo
acceptance.
A Mother Superior walks i
around to insist on the rules ',
and set the punishments. We
know her as Sister NCAA. Her
job makes as much sense as ,
a virginity inspector at Saucy
Sally's House of Fun and
Frolic.
Coach Tressel, the Buckeye
with the black eye, saw the
state of'the play and decided to),
take a knee.
His resignation came
after he had already been
suspended for five games in
2011 for lying to his university
bosses and Sister NCAA about
some of his players selling or
trading memorabilia in 2009.
Of course, that is not good.
The trouble started with
reports of players receiving
benefits from a local tattoo-
shop owner.
The moving finger writes,
and having writ, moves on
but Mother Superior is
not for moving on without
repercussions. She is said
also to be inquiring whether -.
the use of cars was a perk for
some players.
But if universities operated :
as real corporations, the stars '
who make them the money
would be compensated with
all manner of bonuses and
perks although perhaps
not tattoos, which aren't
sufficiently corporate.
Instead, their players
must sweat like the
amateur Olympians of old
sanctimoniously protected
from the alleged corruption of
being paid (unless they were

Is tetanus


the cause of


disability?


DEAR DR. GOTT:
A patient bit my niece at
work while she and oth-
ers were trying to restrain
her. Afterward, my niece
was asked when she had
her last tetanus shot; she
wasn't sure. Rather than
giving her a booster shot,
she received antibiotics and
dressings for the wound.
A few weeks later, her fist
began to clench and she
hl4d to place a ball in her
hand to keep her nails from
digging into her palm. She
has severe pain in her arm
and recently developed
cellulitis. Workers' compen-
sation delayed treatment,
and she is now classified as
permanently disabled. Do
you have any knowledge
in this area that would help
her try to regain the use of
her arm?
DEAR READER:
Tetanus, also known as
"lockjaw," is a serious condi-
tion caused by the bacteria
Clostridium tetani. It is fairly
rare, thanks to the vaccine,
but about 1 million cases
occur each year worldwide.
Less developed countries,
where vaccination rates are
lowest, have the highest
incidence rates.
Tetanus is treatable,
but treatment isn't always
effective. Severe complica-
tions and death may still
occur. Clostridium tetani
can be found throughout
the world in soil and in the
intestines and feces of sev-
eral common farm animals
ahd pets, including cows,
horses, cats, dogs, chick-
ens, guinea pigs and more.
Vaccinated adults can har-
bbr .th bacteria without
becoming infected. .
Their are three different
forms (based on clinical
findings) of tetanus. The
most common is general-
ized tetanus, which accounts
for approximately 80 per-
cent of all cases. Symptoms
include spasms of the jaw,
neck, chest, back and/or
abdominal muscles, tris-
mus (lockjaw), stiffness of
the neck and abdominal
muscles, difficulty swallow-
inrg and/or breathing, fever,
sweating and more. In some
instances, the spasms.may
become prolonged, causing
sudden, powerful, painful
contractions (called tetany),
which can result in muscle
tears and bone fractures.
Localized tetanus is
uncommon. It causes per-
sistent contractions of the
muscles near the site of
the initial injury. In some,
it may precede generalized
tetanus.
Cephalic tetanus is rare
and occurs when tetanus
bacteria enter the body from
head trauma or otitis media
(ear infection). It primarily
affects the nerves of the
face and head.
If your niece's disability
is truly the result of tetanus,
she appears to have been
lucky and only developed
localized tetanus; however,
why she was not given a
booster shot is beyond me.
According to the Centers
for Disease Control (CDC),
"Persons with wounds that
are neither clean nor minor,
and who have had 0-2 prior
doses of tetanus toxoid or


ON HEALTH


Dr. Peter Gott


have an uncertain history of
prior doses should receive
TIG as well as Td or Tdap."
That said, tetanus infec-
tion is rare in the United
States. It may be that her
injury and the resulting
disability are unrelated to
tetanus. How severe was the
wound? Were any nerves,
ligaments or tendons dam-
aged? What testing has your
niece undergone? Has she
had any imaging studies to
determine whether there is
a tear, cyst or other anomaly
that may be causing her
symptoms?
Cellulitis is a common
yet potentially serious skin
infection that typically
affects the skin surface but
can also affect the under-
lying layers. When this
occurs, the infection may
spread to the bloodstream
(sepsis) and lymph nodes.
Symptoms include pain,
warmth, swelling, tender-
ness and redness of the
affected area. Fever may -
also be present Treatment
is with antibiotics.
Now to the main issue,
your niece's limited hand
mobility. Based on your
'note and the classification
of "permanently disabled,"
I assume that at least six
months have passed since
the initial injury, during
which .she failed to show ,'
any imirovementL I am not
sure, armis point, what,
if anything, will restore
the use of her hand, but
she may be able to regain
some function. I suggest
that she speak to her
physician about physi-
cal and/or occupational
therapy. Physical therapy
will work to regain some
mobility and strength back
into the muscles, and occu-
pational therapy will focus
on retraining the muscles
to perform everyday tasks.
Beyond that, she will also
likely learn some exercise
techniques and stretching
that may prevent further
loss of use and reduce
pain.
Once the cellulitis has
been successfully treated,
she may also wish to try
acupressure, acupuncture
or massage in an attempt to
reduce pain. Over-the-coun-
Ater pain relievers such as
ibuprofen or naproxen may
be beneficial. If not, she can
speak to her doctor about
non-narcotic prescription
pain relief
Your niece has a long
road ahead of her, and a
positive outcome isn't guar-
anteed; however, she can
learn to cope and continue
to lead a positive, fulfilling
life.

ACLU challenging drug


testing for state workers


BY KELU KENNEDY
Associated Press
MIAMI The
American Civil Liberties
Union of Florida filed a
lawsuit Tuesday seeking
to halt Gov. Rick Scott's
executive order mandat-
ing drug testing for state
employees regardless
of suspicion in whht the
organization called an
extreme overreach of
Scott's powers.
Scott ordered drug
testing of new hires and
spot checks of existing
state employees under
him in March and gave
state agencies 60 days
to decide how to imple-
ment the plan. The state
already has the power
to test employees if they
suspect drug abuse, but
this order could apply to
state employees regard-
less of suspicions.
'This is a governor
,who is willing to use the
power of government to
intrude upon your rights
in Florida," said Howard
Simon, executive direc-
tor of the ACLU of
Florida. Simon said the
lawsuit was the first of
several the organization
plans to file against Scott
and the Republican-led
Legislature after a ses-
sion Simon said trampled
on civil rights.
"The analysis of
urine also tells a lot
more about you that
is nobody's business,"
said Simon, including
whether an employee
is pregnant, or taking
heart, diabetes, depres-
sion or other medica-
tions.
The ACLU won
a similar lawsuit on
behalf of a Department
of Juvenile Justice
employee in 2004 after
a federal judge said
random testing without
suspicion was unconsti-
tuti6nal.
U.S. District Judge
Robert Hinkle of
Tallahassee determined
the department was
wrong to'fire an office
employee because he
had no direct contact
with children nor were
there any safety reasons
for the testing, such
as carrying a gun or
driving. Hinkle' did not
reinstate the employee
but ordered mediation.
The state settled with
the former employee
for $150,000.
The U.S. Supreme
Court has allowed blan-
ket suspicion-less drug
testing only if "the risk
to public safety is sub-
stantial and real."

Shaq ready to retire from NBA

In this Oct. 29, 2010 file photo Boston Celtics center
Shaquille O'Neal sits on the bench with teammates during the
second half of Boston's 105-101 win against the New York
Knicks in a NBA basketball game in Boston.


After 19-year
career, O'Neal
done with hoops.
By JIMMY GOLEN
Associated Prdss
BOSTON .- Shaquille
O'Neal, a 15-time All-
Star who struggled to get
on the court last season
because of injuries, tweet-
ed on Wednesday that he
is going to retire after a
19-year career in which
he won four titles and the
2000 league Most Valuable
Player award.
O'Neal wrote on Twitter
shortly before 2:45 p.m.
that, "im retiring." It includ-
ed a link to a 16-second
video in which he says, "We


did it; 19 years, baby. Thank
you very much. That's why
I'm telling -you first: I'm
about to retire. Love you.
Talk to you soon.",
An inveterate prankster
who gave himself a new
nickname or several
- in each of his six NBA
cities, O'Neal did not notify
the Boston Celtics, his lat-
est team, of his plans. He
played just 37 games this
year, the first of a two-year
deal at the veteran's mini-
mum salary, making just
three brief appearances
after Feb. 1.
'To my knowledge, he
has not informed any of us
that he's retiring," Celtics
spokesman Jeff Twiss said.
If he goes, O'Neal retires
fifth all-time with 28,596


points, 12th with 13,099
rebounds and a .582 field
goal percentage that is sec-
ond only to Artis Gilmore
among players with more
than 2,000 baskets. His free
throw percentage of .527
- well, now is not the time
to dwell on that.
"I'n a little bit sad," said
Pat Riley, the Heat presi-
dent who was also the
coach when O'Neal won
a title in Miami. "It's the
end of an absolute 20-year
career. Great, great player.

miss Shaq. I'm sure Shaq
will do something big and
beyond."

DEAR ABBY


Dad's homework help gets

passing grade from readers


DEAR ABBY: I'm writ-
ing regarding the letter
from "Not Fooled in Michi-
gan" (April 22), who ex-
pressed concern about her
fiance's daughter's reliance
on him to prQofread her
college papers. As a teach-
er, I know when I assign
a paper that the spelling
and grammar will likely be
checked by a computer or
a person other than a stu-
dent. Whether it's the cam-
pus proofreading service
or a parent is immaterial.
Would "Fooled" have the
same "ethical" objections if
"Kimberly" were using the
campus office to provide
the sane service?
What matters is the con-
tent of her essays, which
the girl is apparently.writ-
ing by herself and in-
cidentally, completing in
enough time to send them
to a proofreader and await
a response: That suggests
a more developed sense of
responsibility than is com-
mon among my students.
I see no ethical dilemma
here, and I find it disin-
genuous of "Not Fooled"
to suggest otherwise. As
for Kimberly's "unhealthy"
reliance on her dad, the


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearobby.com
aforementioned campus
services are,' in my expe-
rience, generally staffed
with underpaid under-
graduates or overworked
teaching assistants. If her
dad has the knowledge
and time to assist her, I see
nothing wrong with her
asking for his help. That's
not over-reliance on a par-
ent. It's choosing the best
of one's available options. -
TEXAS TEACHER WHO
KNOWS
DEAR TEACHER:
Thank you for writing. I.
received a huge number of
responses tbo 'that letter -
from teachers, parents and
students alike. Read on:
. DEAR ABBY: The fi-
ancee needs to determine
which class the papers
are for before calling foul.
If it's a composition class
in which the student is.
graded on spelling and
grammar, then no, Dad


shouldn't fix them, but he
can advise. Its called being
a parent, and "Not Fooled"
better become accustomed
to the idea of sharing his at-
tention. I.,
If it's something like a
history class, editing assis,
tance shouldn't be a prob-
lem. All good writers have
editors to help with me-.
chanics because after look-
ing at a piece for too long,
you no longer see the er-
rors. CYNDI IN OHIO,
DEAR ABBY: As a col
lege student, I frequently
read papers by students
whose grammar training
was less rigorous. than
mine. The university does
not consider that cheat-
ing, and we are advised by
our professors to do so. It
is not their job to teach us'
grammar. They are trying
to teach their material.
"Not Fooled" needs to
relai, get a better under-
standing of today's univer-
sity system, and learn to
,trust her future stepdaugh-
ter while encouraging par-
ent-child communication. -

ASSOCIATED PRESS
Miami Heat's LeBron James (6) goes up for a dunk during the second half of Game 1 of the
NBA Finals basketball game against the Dallas Mavericks Tuesday in Miami.


Heat finishing strongly -

and say they can improve


By TIM REYNOLDS
Associated Press
MIAMI At the start,
the Miami Heat couldn't fin-
ish.
That's apparently no lon-
ger the case.
Among the many trends
that have popped up during
Miami's five-game postsea-
son winning streak, maybe
the most notable is that the
Heat have outscored oppo-
nents in the fourth quarter
in each of those contests.
That includes Game 1
of the NBA finals against
Dallas. Game 2 of the series
Sis Thursday night, when
the Heat look to hold the
home-court edge and move
two wins away from a cham-
pionship.
'We've been in a lot of
these grind-out games
and find a way just to stay
in there, stay the course
and' find a way to win at
the end," Heat coach Erik
Spoelstra said Wednesday
after practice. "Again, I
think the more times you're
in those type of games, the
less you panic or become
distracted.",
The Heat have been in
plenty of those games by
now.
One of the major criti-
cisms of the Heat in the
regular season was how the
team simply could not win
one-possession games at
the end. Even with LeBron
James, Dwyane Wade and


Chris Bosh leading the way,
Miami went 5-14 in games
decided by five points or.
less in the regular season.
In the playoffs, it hasn't
been a problem. Miami has
trailed at the half in each of
its last three games, then
outscored Chicago and
Dallas by a combined 29
points after halftime to win
all three of those contests.
And to hear LeBron James
tell it, the confidence for
those wins comes ironi-
cally from losses.
"','It comes from failure
throughout the season,"
James said. "Having games
where we felt like we could
or should have won games,
late in games, and we
just didn't execute. I said
(Tuesday) night, I was used
to closing out games in the
last seven years. C.B. was
used to closing out games
and D-Wade was used to
closing out games. One
thing was figuring out how
to do it together. We were
used to doing it individually,
early on in the season."
No more, they're rn t.
When Dallas scored the
first seven points of the
second half to take a 51-
43 lead, the Heat changed
both their defensive dispo-
sition the Mavs scored
,18 points in the next 18
minutes and their offen-
sive tendencies. The bal-
ance was nearly perfect for.
Miami the rest of the way:
Wade took nine shots in the


final 22 minutes, Bosh took
eight, James and Udonis
Haslem each took seven.
The Heat didn't ask one
person to carry the scoring
load, and that meant the
Mavericks couldn't over-
play anyone.
It also meant that Bosh's
struggles he was 1 for
9 in the second half, the
lone make being a game-
sealing dunk with about a
minute left after an assist
from Wade went largely
unnoticed. That was thanks
in part to the Heat hold-
ing a 7-1 edge in offensive
rebounds after halftime.
'"They won the line of
scrimmage, is really what it
came down to," Mavericks
coach Rick Carlisle said.
"They were more physical
inside. It led to 16 second-
chance opportunities for
them. And that just takes
the ball out of our hands."
Miami's defensive num-
bers in Game 1 may not
have been better. Against
a high-powered team like
the Mavs, the' Heat limited
them to 84 points and 37
percent shooting.
The stat sheet looked
great. The film, not so
much, Wade said.
"We've seen a lot of pos-
sessions on the film that
we can get better defen-
sively," he said. "We can
help each other out better
and try to make it a little
tougher. Some of the shots
they missed were open."

FRENCH: Nadal 'strong


Continued From Page 1B

ywas at his "King of Clay"
best.
He scrambled along the
baseline to dig out and get
back shots that would be
winners against most any-
one else. He went from
defense to offense in a
blink, winning 14 of the
first 19 points that lasted at
least 10 strokes, according
to the APs tally. He made a
hard-to-believe 13 unforced
errors total; Soderling made
41. Nadal broke in each of
the first two games the 6-
foot-4 Soderling served, six
times in all.
"He played really good.
It's the first match this
tournament that he played
well all the time," said Toni
Nadal, Rafael's uncle ad
coach. :"Well, only; in the
third set was I a little wor-
ried. But it Was very good
for us today."
On Friday, the top-seed-
ed Nadal will take on No. 4
Andy Murray, who became
only the third British man
in the last 70 years to reach
the French Open semifinals
by beating unseeded Juan
Ignacio Chela of Argentina
7-6 (2), 7-5, 6-2. Murray's
been playing with a torn
tendon in his right ankle
since twisting it in the third
round, and he trailed Chela
4-1, then 5-3, before saving
two set points and turning
the match around.
"Just a really scrappy
match," said Murray, who
is 0-3 in Grand Slam finals.


"I didn't start particularly
well and then got a little bit
better, started moving a bit
better, towards the end of
the first set" .
The other men's semifi-
nal is No. 2 Novak Djokovic,
who is 41-0 in 2011 and has
won 43 consecutive matches
overall, against No. 3 Roger
Federer, owner of a record
16 Grand Slam titles.
It's the 12th time in' the
history of the Open era,
which began in 1968, that
the top four seeded men .
reached .the semifinals at
a Grand Slam tournament "
- and first since the 2006 ,
French Open.
In contrast, none of the
top four seeded players will
participate in the women's
semifinals Thursday, when
No. 5 Francesca Schiavone
of Italy, the defending cham- ,
pion, f4ces No. 11 Marion
Bartoliof France, and No. 6
Li Na of China meets No. 7
Maria Sharapova of Russia.
For, Sharapova, who had
right shoulder surgery in
October 2008, its her first
major semifinal in more than
three years, and she is bidding
to complete a career Grand
Slam. She won Wimbledon in
2004, the U.S. Open in 2006,
and the Australian Open in
2008, but never has been to a
final in Paris.
"I put a lot of work in
to be in this stage of the
Grand Slams," Sharapova
said after beating No. 15
Andrea Petkovic. F
