of waiting for

road repairs

Franklin St., sole entrance
to Shands Lake Shore,
is far from a smooth ride.

Franklin Street has long
been in need of repair, but
progress has been slow,
according to Jack Berry,
Lake Shore Hospital
Authority manager.
"I've been trying to get it
paved for the last five years
and ain't got it done yet,"
he said.
Northeast Franklin
Street is a vital road in Lake
City because it is the only
entrance to Shands Lake
Shore Regional Medical
Center. However, the road
is not in the best of shape.
"It'shorrible," Berry said.
"It's a shame that you've
got to ride down a street to
your hospital that's worse
than an Alabama country
dirt road."
For their part, city offi-
cials say they're doing
everything they can to
move the project along.

Another Way in need

Jenny Cook, children's advocate for Another Way Inc., sorts through bags of donated
women's clothing at the Lake City facility. The shelter is in need for new or slightly used
back-to-school clothes for children.

Clothing shortage

has local advocacy

group in a quandary

Another Way Inc. is in need of dona-
tions of school clothes for the children
housed at the shelter to wear when
they return to school.
Jenny Cook, children's advocate,
said by this time in the year, the
shelter has usually received enough
school clothes donations to cover local
needs, but so far this year, donations
have fallen short.

"Usually by this time, we have a
lot more clothes and shoes for the
children," Cook said. "We have gotten
.donations and some of them have been
really nice donations, but for the chil-
dren that we have, it just hasn't been a
match with the clothes."
Another Way is a local organization
that offers counseling, support and
safe shelter to survivors of domestic
and sexual violence. It also provides a

'Glee: The 3D Concert Movie' more than music

Concert movies typically
offer a peek into the
private moments of a
pop star's life. "Michael
Jackson: This Is It"
revealed the entertainer's perfec-
tionist tendencies, and sly sense of
humor. "Justin Bieber: Never Say
Never" showed the teen singer's
drive for success.
But "Glee: The 3D Concert
Movie," opening Friday, is an 83-min-
ute romp with the fictional charac-
ters who populate the Fox TV series.
It's multi-purposing at its finest
Stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith,
Kevin McHale, Chris Coffer, Amber
Riley, Heather Morris and the rest
maintain their "Glee" personae while
performing hits from the show dur-
ing the concert tour that traveled the
country earlier this summer.
And that's what sets it up for
success, said director Kevin
"It would have been completely
disconnected from what made (the
show) extremely popular if it had
turned into, 'Oh, look at Lea Michele
and Cory Monteith and Harry Shum
Jr. be superstars and rehearse and
do press and record and go on tour,"'
Tancharoen said.
"'Tat's why I think it's different
from those other concert films,"
he continued. "Those are all rock
stars and musicians, and these are
characters who mean something dif-
ferent to everybody else. They are
extremely talented and they all sing
very well and perform very well, and
that's another big part of the show
that was very popular, so we kind of
wanted to mix all that stuff together

REVIEW: School board awaits word from attorney CLOTHING: Shortage

Continued From Page 1A

"I've seen a lot of parents have an
extreme desire to have something
like this," he said.
Widergren also noted that other
counties like Leon, Marion and
Alachua have similar programs.
For its first year, the program
would be capped at 100 students at
a fee of $55 a week per student with
various discounts available, like if
more than one student in a family
is enrolled.
Both Widergren and Mike Null,
district purchasing director, said
fees assessed would cover the
program's operating expenses,
wages for staff and more, so no
cost would be incurred to the
"The calculations have been done
based on the number of participants
that all of the overhead expense will
be met and then some," Null said.
A staff of one program director
and seven group leaders would be
hired and paid for through Staffing
of St. Augustine Inc., based solely
on Widergren's recommendations,
Null said. The board unanimously
approved the staffing agreement
with the St. Augustine company in
an attachment to its consent agen-
Board members expressed sup-
port of the program, but raised
questions about the program's staff-
ing process and the need to use an
outside company.
Null said Staffing of St. Augustine
would hire only.those persons rec-
ommended by Widergren after
doing extra clearings like a back-

ground check and fingerprinting.
Program staff would be on the staff-
ing company's payroll, allowing
less financial impact to the county,
he said, and since they would not
be district employees, they would
not be in the Florida Retirement
System. ,
If the program passes the pilot
stage, the district could employ the
program's staff in the future, Null
"Long range, we probably will
go in that direction," he said,
"but for the pilot program, we
thought this would be an easier
way to get it up and running and
we won't even have any unem-
ployment compensation liability
because they would be employed
by somebody else."
Johnson said he would like district
employees who have been adversely
affected by state budget cuts to be
considered for the program's open
positions first.
Norris said he had concerns
over items like hours and wages
for program staff who are already
employed by the district, insur-
ance and the district's liability for
the program. Null said the liability
risk is spread out, since program
students will have to carry stu-
dent accident insurance, program
employees will have insurance
through the staffing company and
the district will have its own insur-
ance still in place.
Norris said he also wanted
to review if the district has the
authority to assess fees for the

program, since students have a
right to a free, public education
and would be completing school-
assigned homework and reading
during the program.
"We're doing a lot of things that
sound a lot like continuing the edu-
cation of the day," he said.
Norris said his concerns are not
that the program is illegal, but with
the minute details of its operation.
"I want us to do it right," he said.
Linard Johnson, board chairman,
"It seems to me that I think we
like the program and see the need
for it," Johnson said, "but it really
does need some attorney review to
get me happy about it."
Widergren asked the board
to expedite the review process
since parents will soon be choos-
ing where to enroll their children
in after-school programs with the
start of school on Aug. 22 nearing,
and Keith Hudson, board member,
'Time is of the essence," Hudson
Widergren said the program will
be a great service to both students
and parents.
"It's a chance to work with them
outside the classroom and provide
the parents with the service they're
looking for," he said, "which is good
after-school care and supervising
in a safe, nurturing environment
where we're reinforcing the values
that we have at school and reinforc-
ing the attributes that we're looking

It's not so much the condition of the road itself as
sudden changes in elevation, he said.
Ideally, he said, the road will be made the
same as any other.
"We trust over time it will be maintained and
construction will be completed to meet expecta-
tions of road conditions," Kimbrell said.
Previously Franklin Street had stop signs at
several intersections leading to the hospital.
The city removed 11 of the stop signs at
the Authority's request so as to make. ho_ tal
access easier. However, driving Franklin now

reveals its flaws even more starkly.
"Now you see just how rough the road is
going to the hospital," Berry said.
Despite the approval of design and engineer-
ing services, the project seems to be stalled,
Berry believes. He said he has not received
the engineering report or heard anything from
the city.
"I don't know what's slowing the process," he
However, the city is still waiting to get the
report back itself, Johnson said. The report will

Berry said it has been suggested the Authority

"We're not in the paving business," he said.
"Our tax dollars are spent for health care, not
for paving streets."
Johnson said the city.is committed to the
project but does not know what level of funding
will be provided. The total project could cqst
more than $200,000, and the CRA has limited

What a



cut might

look like

Since the congressio-
nal super committee
on cutting the deficit
hasn't even held its
first meeting yet it
may be a little premature to call
it a failure but the prospects for
success aren't good.
As of Wednesday afternoon,
nine of the 12 members, three
each to be chosen by the House
and Senate Democratic and
Republican leaders, had been
named and they were members
who could reliably be counted
on to hold fast to their parties'
basic positions: no tax increas-
es for the Republicans, no cut
in Social Security or Medicare
for the Democrats.
Jim Salter of The Associated
Press has given us a sample
of what the country, at the-
point where the rubber meets
the road, might be in for if
these cuts, now in the abstract,
become real. He writes:
"Police and sheriff's depart-
ments in states that produce
much of the nation's metham-
phetamine have made a sudden
retreat in the war on meth, at ,
times abandoning pursuit of the
drug because they can no lon-
ger afford to clean up the toxic
waste generated by labs."
The reason, Salter explains,
is because of steep cutbacks in
federal spending. The federal gov-
ernment cancelled a program that
provided millions to help local law
enforcement dispose of the labs.
Some states have undertaken
to continue to do the cleanup
on their own, and some have
found even cheaper ways of
doing it, but AP said Oklahoma
had to drop plans to hire 20
drug investigators and educa-
tors to pay for the cleanup.
If the federal government is
barred from helping the states
and the states can't do it on
their own, the meth trade will
revive and thrive and communi-
ties will continue to be contami-
Something for the super
committee to think about.

How about, "Nice guys finish
last?" If you believe nice guys
finish last, what race are you
trying to win? How about the
"human race"?
What does it mean to "be
nice"? The Wikipedia defini-
tion: "Pleasing, delightful,
agreeable." How about a more
workable definition? "Being
nice means behaving in such
a manner as to show respect,
appreciation, consideration, and
courtesy to others." Or, we can
see it as the opposite of "mean"
or "thoughtless" behavior, like
being disrespectful, unapprecia-
tive, inconsiderate or discourte-
ous to others. Or, to act in a
way that is likely to hurt rather
than support others.
Are there any good reasons I
should be nice?
It's the right thing to do.
Whatever your moral standards
are, you may agree that it's bet-
ter to be positive, supportive,
and generous rather than insult-
ing, aggressive, or hurtful in
things we say to others.

we deal with.
The way we act towards oth-
ers increases the likelihood that
they will reciprocate. It builds
mutual support and makes rela-
tionships more positive.
If I decide to be nicer, where
can I start?
Learn from your mistakes.
Remember some times you
made a thoughtless or hurtful
comment, and how it hurt the
other person or the relationship.
It can be just as simple as show-
ing impatience or disapproval,
or a critical remark. It can be
angry words spoken without
taking the time and the thought
of how it will be received. Small
digs may last a long time, even
a lifetime. Wouldn't you rather
think and consider others' feel-
ings before blurting it out?
Treat others as you would
like to be treated. Even joking

or kidding around can be hurt-
ful. Recognize the potential
for damage in what you say. If
you catch yourself carelessly
saying something hurtful, it's
always okay to apologize and
clarify what you meant right
away. Others are usually ready
to accept that the words didn't
really express your kinder feel-

you let the hurtful comments go
So, don't be a jerk! (Oops,
not nice.) Be nice! If others
are not always nice to you,
remember they carry the scars

even when you feel they might
not deserve it may be difficult,
but it helps if you believe that,

Kindness may even help turn
them around. We all deserve

Kerry's war on citizen speech

S en. John Kerry, D-
Mass., is really ticked
at our free press, not
liking one little bit how
it affords ordinary citi-
zen critics of our government a
chance to be heard.
"The media in America has
a bigger responsibility than
it's exercising today," he said,
which in some ways is right,
though not in the ways he
"The media has got to
begin to not give equal time or
equal balance to an absolutely
absurd notion just because
somebody asserts it or simply
because somebody says some-
thing which everybody knows
is not factual," he went on in
an MSNBC interview, and
guess what he was referring
to? Why, the new evil beast of
horrified leftist ideologues: the
Tea Party.
"It doesn't deserve the same
credit as a legitimate idea about
what you do," Kerry continued.
"And the problem is everything
is put into this tit-for-tat equal
battle and America is losing
any sense of what's real, of
who's accountable, of who is not
accountable, of who's real, who
isn't, who's serious, who isn't."
It's interesting that Kerry
made clear he doesn't consider
this an argument of equals, for

ried well) is psychologically
akin to the monarchs of old who
thought their authority divinely
conferred, meaning no lower-
class disparagement allowed.
In the American colonies,
however, newspapers got ram-
bunctious despite laws disallow-
ing criticism even if it were true
- in fact, especially if it were
true, historians say. Ready to
have at royal governors unlike
almost any newspapers any-
where else in the world, many
kicked rear ends whenever they
thought rear ends were in need
of kicking, and wise juries said
the truth's OK to print, no mat-
ter what the law harrumphs.
It got so bad actually, so
good that these newspapers
helped start the Revolutionary
War, getting rid of the royal
leaders altogether, although
every now and then someone
like King Kerry will try to
silence the common folks. How
dare they? Don't they know
their place?
In fact, the tea party activists
do know their place. They are

constitutionally empowered
citizens (given the right to free
speech, to peaceful assembly
and to petition for a redress of
grievances) who get it that a
failure to participate signals a
willingness to abdicate.
Contrary to Kerry, the press's
chief flaw is not being overly
solicitous of tea party views.
Many mainstream news outlets
have a liberal bias, as has been
shown in repeated studies with
hundreds of examples, and
that's to Kerry's immense ben-
Kerry's youthful declaration
that U.S. soldiers in Vietnam
daily committed heinous war
crimes with every officer know-
ing about it was a reckless
rampage immensely hurtful to
thousands of wholly innocent
American veterans.
Nevertheless, during his
2004 presidential campaign,
news outlets took care not to
tread much on any number of
questionable claims. If they are
now going to avoid inanities as
Kerry says he wants, he will
be quoted meagerly at best,
perhaps a few sentences a year
raking their ignominious way
to public attention.

is House



T "he evening after
his *House passed
a debt-ceiling bill
that was all spend-
ing cuts and no rev-
enue increases, Speaker John
Boehner took a victory lap.
"When you look at this final
agreement that we came to
with the White House, I got 98
percent of what I wanted. I'm
pretty happy," he said. Other
Republican lawmakers boasted
that they had seized control of
fiscal policy.
It may have been a "Mission
Accomplished" moment -
meaning, instead of a victory,
the worst may be yet to come.
Late Friday, Standard &
Poor's, admittedly under slop-
py circumstances, downgraded
the quality of U.S. debt on the
grounds that the agreement's
mechanism to pay down the
deficit solely through spending
cuts is economically and politi-
cally unrealistic.
Confronted with the wreck-
age they had caused, Tea
Party-movement followers,
the driving force behind the
"rule or ruin" tactics, began
edging away from their handi-
work. Tea Party leaders like
Michele Bachmann explained
that it was all President Barack
Obama's fault because he's,
well,, he's Barack Obama.
Most of the American people
aren't buying it A New York
Times/CBS poll found 57 per-
cent disapproving of the way
Boehner is handling his job.
That's 10 points higher than
Obama's disapproval ratings.
The markets may recover.
We can only hope so for the
savings of average Americans.
They don't care about Tea
Party followers' ideological
purity or the inability of a vet-
eran legislator like Boehner
to face them down. They care
about their retirement money.
The Republicans' single-
minded focus on spending
cuts has prepared the way
for another dilemma. The
debt-ceiling deal calls for an
immediate $350 billion cut in
defense spending, and if a deal
can't be reached to cut even
more defense spending, the
Pentagon gets slapped with an
automatic $500 billion cut
With troops likely still fight-
ing in Afghanistanr, a residual
force in Iraq and naval patrols
in the volatile Mediterranean
and off the Horn of Africa,
which member of the Tea
Party is going to step forward
and tell the armed forces
they have to keep on fighting,
although with $850 billion less
to do it with.
Well, at least the Tea Party
Republicans can take comfort
they got what they wanted.
Maybe they got out of the mar-
ket in time.

For flash mobsters, crowd size a tempting cover

Associated Press

The July 4 fireworks
display in the Cleveland
suburb of Shaker Heights
was anything but a family
As many as 1,000 teen-
agers, mobilized through
social networking sites,
turned out and soon start-
ed fighting and disrupting
the event.
Thanks to social net-
works like Twitter and
Facebook, more and more
so-called flash mobs are
materializing across the
globe, leaving police scram-
bling to keep tabs on the
spontaneous assemblies.
"They're gathering with
an intent behind it not
just to enjoy the event,"
Shaker Heights Police
Chief D. Scott Lee said.
"All too often, some of the
intent is malicious."
Flash mobs started off in
2003 as peaceful and often
humorous acts of public
performance, such as mass
dance routines or street pil-
low fights. But in recent
years, the term has taken
a darker twist as crimi-
nals exploit the anonym-
ity of crowds, using social
networking to coordinate
everything from robberies
to fights to general chaos.
In London, recent rioting
and looting has been blamed
in part on groups of youths-
using Twitter, mobile phone
text messages and instant
messaging on BlackBerry
to organize and keep a step
ahead of police.
And Sunday in
Philadelphia, Mayor
Michael Nutter condemned
the behavior of teenagers
involved in flash mobs that
have left several people
injured in recent weeks.
"What is making this
unique today is the social
.media aspect," said Everett
Gillison, Philadelphia's dep-
uty mayor for public safety.
"They can communicate and
congregate at a moment's
notice. That can overwhelm
any municipality."
A Philadelphia man was
assaulted by a group of
about 30 people who were
believed to have gotten
together through Twitter.
In 2009, crowds swelled
along the trendy South
Street shopping district and
assaulted several people.
On June 23, a couple
dozen youths arrived via
subway, in Upper Darby,
outside Philadelphia, and
looted several hundred dol-
lars of sneakers, socks and
wrist watches from a Sears
store. Their haul wasn't
especially impressive but
the sheer size of the group
and the speed of the rough-
ly five-minute operation
made them all but impos-
sible to stop.

In this July 14 photo, actors dressed in beach attire participate in a flash mob as part of a commercial for McDonald's in Chicago. Thanks to websites like
Twitter and Facebook, more and more so-called flash mobs are materializing across the globe.

Butter sculptures churn 100-year fair legacy

Associated Press

Life-size butter sculp-
tures of everything from
cows to space heroes and
Hollywood stars are among
the most beloved traditions
of state fairs, drawing thou-
sands of admirers each year
From Iowa to Ohio and as far
south as Texas.
In Iowa, where the tradition
' started, the fair will celebrate
the 100th year of its butter
cow when it begins Thursday.
While other state fairs may
mimic the butter cow or tout
other creamy creations, none
has gained as much fame as
the originaL.
Other states with butter
cows include Illinois, Kansas,
New York and Utah, while
the Wisconsin and Indiana
state fairs feature mammoth
cheese carvings.
But Minnesota may come
the closest to Iowa in cel-
ebration of its dairy sculp-
tures. The state's dairy queen
Princess Kay of the Milky
Way and her court are
immortalized in butter busts.
Other state sculptures have
included Darth Vadar and,

But it's Iowa where the
rich history was born, con-
firmed Gary Welling, head
of the pastry program at
Johnson & Wales University
in Providence, RI.
There, sculptor Sarah Pratt
works in a cooler where the
air lingers in the low 40s,
applying 600 pounds of butter
over a metal, wood and wire
frame to create a slick and
fatty cow that's 5 feet tall and
about 8 feet long.
The 34-year-old elemen-
tary school teacher took
over the job in 2006 from
the late Norma "Duffy" Lyon,
who was Iowa's "Butter Cow
Lady" for 46 years.
Pratt, who apprenticed
with Lyon for 15 years, said
she strives to achieve the
same level of success in both
her sculpting and promotion
of the butter cow.
"I try to hone my skills
more and more each year,"
said Pratt, who lives in West
Des Moines. "She was very
good and strived to make the
perfect cow. That is what I
strive to do and honor what
she did."
Along with the cow,
Lyon's butter works for the
fair included Grant Wood's
famous painting "American

The Last Supper, John Wayne
and Elvis Presley. She died
earlier this year.
'To be able to carry on this
tradition, it's a huge honor,"
Pratt said.
Minnesota's reigning dairy
queen, Katie Miron, 20, said
she's honored to be the sub-
ject of a butter sculpture.
"I think every farmer's
daughter dreams of being

a butter head one day," said
Miron, who's from Hugo,

Docs: Sports in heat OK with precautions

AP Medical Writer

sports in hot, steamy
weather is safe for healthy
children and teen athletes,
so long as precautions are
taken and the drive to win
doesn't trump common
sense, the nation's largest
pediatricians group says.
New guidelines from
the American Academy
of Pediatrics arrive just
as school sports ramp up
in sultry August tempera-
tures. The advice, released
Monday, comes a week after
two Georgia high school
football players died fol-
lowing practices in 90-plus
degree heat. Authorities
were investigating if the
weather contributed.
The guidelines replace
a more restrictive policy
based on old thinking that
kids were more vulnerable
to heat stress than adults.
New research shows that's
not true, the academy
says. With adequate train-
ing, water intake, time-outs
and emergency treatment
available on the sidelines,

healthy young athletes can
play even in high heat and
humidity within reason,
the guidelines say.
"'The more educated par-
ents, athletes and staff are
about risks associated with
heat illness, the more likely
they will think twice before
allowing a competitive culture
to overtake sound sensibili-
ties," said Dr. Cynthia Devore,
co-author of the policy and a
physician for schools in the
Rochester, NY area..
Government data
released last week showed
that more than 3,000 U.S.
children and teens young-
er than 20 received emer-
gency-room treatment for
nonfatal heat illness from
sports or exercise between
2001 and 2009.
A few young athletes
die annually from heat-
related illness. Over a 13
year period, 29 high school
football players died from
heat stroke,- data from the
American Football Coaches
Association and others
show. Football is a special
concern, because players
often begin intense practice
during late-summer heat,

VA docs brush up on treating female veterans

Associated Press

"show and tell" table at this
gathering of doctors fea-
tured contraceptive spong-
es and female condoms.
Life-size rubber pelvises
and female breasts covered
several other tables at the
back of a windowless con-
vention center ballrooin.
The lectures focused on
topics like how to help a
rape victim feel comfort-
able in an exam rqom.
Not unusual for a doctors'
meeting, but these were
doctors and nurse practi-
tioners with the Veterans
Affairs Department, a
cohort of medical profes-
sionals who in the past
might have gone years
without seeing a female
patient But avoiding topics
like gynecology and breast
exams is no longer possible
because of an influx of thou-
sands of female veterans of
Iraq and Afghanistan into
the VA's system of hospitals
and clinics.
Used to treating the men
who served in Vietnam or
World War II, many of the
VA's practitioners are rusty
on skills like performing pel-
vic exams on women and
talking about birth control.
Some are downright ner-
vous over treating women.
The result.has been very
limited availability at some
VA clinics for gender-spe-
cific health appointments
for women. Female veter-
ans often had to .drive hours
to get to another facility, or
the VA had to pick up the
tab for them to go to a
nearby private doctor if
they opted to go at all.
The VA is working
toward having a trained,
designated women's pro-
vider in every facility. So
far, officials have achieved
the goal in its approximate-
ly 150 medical centers and
in at least 60 to 65 percent
of its 900 community-based
clinics, according to the
The VA has been bring-
ing doctors and nurse
practitioners by the hun-
dreds to mini-residency
programs like this one out-
side Orlando, Fla., focused
on women's health. A key
component of the training

is performing pelvic exams
on live models typically
volunteer nurses who
critique them.
"What we heard time
and time again from pro-
viders that have been there
so long is, 'I have forgotten
since medical school how
to do a lot of the women's
specific care,'" said Dr.
Robert Dorr, chief of staff
at the VA medical center in
Saginaw, Mich. Providers
who will be treating women
in smaller VA clinics in
Northern Michigan went
with him to the seminar in
"There was anxiety,"
Dorr said. "There was
a lot of nervousness.
There was even some
fear: 'Would I be able
to take care of a female
In addition to exams on
live models, the providers
practiced breast and pel-
vis exams on large, life-
like rubber simulators with
abnormalities that doctors
need to be familiar with.
One topic was care for
patients who have been
sexually assaulted. An esti-
mated 22 percent of female
users experienced what
the VA calls "military sex-
ual trauma," meaning they
endured unwanted sexual
harassment, assault or rape
in a military setting. The pro-
viders learn tips like wash-
ing their hhnds in front of
a patient to help ease the
patient's comfort level, and
to always have a chaperone
during a pelvic exam. They
also learn about what the
women might have experi-
enced in combat
Women have been heavily

. involved in the fight in Iraq and
Afghanistan in roles such as
medics, truck drivers, pilots
and military police officers,
even though military .policies,
prohibit women from serv-
ing in many combat positions.-
About 15 percent of the military
is comprised of women, com-
pared with 11 percent in the
1991 Persian Gulf War and 3
percent in the Vietnam War.
After the 2001 start of the
war in Afghanistan and the
2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq,
female veterans began com-.
ing in large numbers to VA
hospitals and clinics. Most of
the women from the recent
conflicts were under age 40.
They frequently found
facilities without private
changing areas or wom-
en's clinics, staff members
who did not believe they'd
been in combat, and dog-
tors unfamiliar with their
health needs. In 2009, the
Government Accountability
Office said the VA wasn't
doing enough to ensure
female patients had com-
plete privacy, noting that it
had found in some facilities
gynecological exam tables
facing the door.
The VA began the mini-
residency program in wom-
en's health in 2008 and 1,100
providers have now com-
pleted it. The agency has
also added more women's
clinics with separate wait-
ing areas within its facilities
and made other improve-
ments, such as creating
private areas for women
to change and bathe.

Eric Shinseki announced
that pilot childcare centers

Boy or girl? Test raises ethical concerns

AP Medical Writer
girl? A simple blood test in
mothers-to-be can answer
that question with surpris-
ing accuracy at about seven
weeks, a research analysis
has found.
Though notwidely offered
by U.S. doctors, gender-
detecting blood tests have
been sodk online to consum-
ers for the past few 'years.
Their promises of early and
accurate results prompted
genetics researchers to take
a closer look.
They analyzed 57 pub-
lished studies of gender
testing done in rigorous
research or academic set-
tings though not neces-
sarily the same methods or
conditions used by direct-
to-consumer firms.
The authors say the
results suggest blood tests
like those studied could be
a breakthrough for women
at risk of having babies with
certain diseases, who could
avoid invasive procedures
if they learned their fetus
was a gender not affect-
ed by those illnesses. But
the study raises. concerns
about couples using such
tests for gender selection
and abortion.
Couples who buy tests
from marketers should be
questioned about how they
plan to use the results, the
study authors said.
' The analyzedtestcan detect
fetal DNA in mothers' blood.
It's about 95 percent accurate
at identifying gender when
women are at least seven
weeks' pregnant- more than
one month before convention-
al methods. Accuracy of the
testing increases as pregnan-
cy advances, the researchers
Conventional proce-
dures, typically done for
medical reasons, can detect

gender starting at about 10
The new analysis, pub-
lished in Wednesday's
Journal of the American
Medical Association,
involved more than 6,000
pregnancies. The testing
used a lab procedure called
PCR that detects genetic
material in this case,
the male Y chromosome.
If present in the mother's
blood, she's carrying a boy,
but if absent, it's a girl.
Tests that companies sell
directly to consumers were
not examined in the analy-
sis. Sex-detection tests using
mothers' urine or blood
before seven weeks of preg-
nancy were not accurate, the
researchers said.
Senior author Dr. Diana
Bianchi, a reproductive
geneticist and executive
director of the Mother
Infant Research Institute
at Tufts Medical Center in
Boston,. called the results
impressive. She noted that
doctors in Great Britain are
already using such testing
for couples at risk of having
children with hemophilia or
other sex-linked 'diseases,
partly to help guide treat-
ment decisions.
The research indicates that
many laboratories have had
success with the test, but the
results can't be generalized to
all labs because testing condi-
tions can vary substantially,
said Dr. Joe Leigh Simpson, a
genetics professor at Florida
International University. He
was not involved in the study.
Simpson rioted that
using gender-detection
blood testing for medical
or other reasons has not
been endorsed by guide-
line-setting medical groups
and some experts consider
it experimental.
Dr. Lee Shulman, chief
of clinical genetics at
Northwestern Memorial
Hospital in Chicago, said

the testing "isn't ready for
prime time."
Recent research found
that increasing numbers of
women in India who already
have daughters are having
abortions when prenatal
tests show another girl,
suggesting that an Indian
ban on such gender test-
ing has been ineffective.
The expense of marrying
off girls has contributed to
a cultural preference there
for boys.
Evidence also suggests
that China's limits on one
child per couple and tradi-
tional preference for male
heirs has contributed to
abortions and an increasing-
ly large gender imbalance.
There's very little data on
reasons for U.S. abortions
or whether gender pref-
erences or gender-detec-
tion methods play a role,
said Susannah Baruch, a
policy consultant for the
Generations Ahead, an
advocacy group that stud-
ies genetic techniques and
gender issues.
Consumer Genetics Inc.
a Santa Clara, Calif.-based
company sells an "early
gender" blood test called
"Pink or Blue" online for
$25 plus $265 or more for
laboratory testing. It boasts
of 95 percent accuracy,
using a lab technique its"
scientists developed from
the type of testing evalu-
ated in the new analysis,
said Terry Carmichael, the
company's executive vice
Carmichael said the com-
pany sells more than 1,000
kits a year. He said the
company won't test blood
samples unless women
sign a consent form agree-
ing not to use the results
for gender selection.
The company also won't
sell kits to customers in
China or India because of
fears of gender selection.

ing for the company's "early gender" blood test called "Pink or Blue."


HEAT: Sports can be OK

wearing uniforms and pad-
ding that can be stifling.
Dr. Michael Bergeron, a
University of South Dakota
sports medicine special-
ist, said the academy's old
policy was often ignored
because it recommended
limiting or avoiding sports
even in common hot weath-
er conditions. The new
policy is more detailed and
nuanced, recommending
that athletes be evaluated
individually for play in hot
Still, Bergeron warned
that overzealousness can be
dangerous even for healthy
kids, and even in relatively
tame summer weather.
"You can take somebody
in 80-degree heat and you
can kill them if you work
them hard enough," he said.
The guidelines don't
list temperature or humid-
ity cutoffs, but say safety
should be the top priority.
Other academy advice
-Teams should have
emergency plans with
trained personnel and treat-

ment available and policies
for avoiding heat illness.
-Give kids about two
weeks to adapt to pre-
season sessions, gradually
increasing intensity and
duration. Closely moni-
tor more vulnerable kids,
including those who are
overweight or have dia-
-Make sure athletes are
well-hydrated before prac-
tice or games. During activ-
ity, kids aged 9-12 should
drink about half a cup to
a cup of water every 20
minutes; for teens, 5 or 6
cups an hour. Sports drinks
containing electrolytes and
sodium should be offered
during extra strenuous
-Educate everyone
about signs of heat stress,
including dizziness, mus-
cle cramps, headaches
and nausea. Kids with
symptoms should be side-
lined and treated imme-
diately; athletes should
be encouraged to report
if teammates seem to be

- David Garrard is out,
Blaine Gabbert is in and
Todd Bouman is once again
off the tractor.

Gabbert, Luke McCown
and Bouman are expected
to share snaps. McCown
took no repetitions in prac-

was unclear whether he
was injured.
The Jaguars signed the
39-year-old Bouman, mak-

Quiet quest

Thome closes in on 600 home runs

Associated Press

Thome's pursuit of 600
career home runs has been
a rather quiet quest
Fighting injuries during
a frustrating season for
the Minnesota Twins, the
40-year-old Thome hasn't
received nearly the amount
of national publicity that his
predecessors who reached
the milestone did. Even
Derek Jeter's accomplish-
ment of 3,000 hits dwarfed
the attention that Thome
has been getting, naturally,
since Jeter plays for the
New York Yankees.
But Thome is close to
joining an exclusive club.
With 598 home runs
over his powerful 20-year
career, Thome is on the
verge of becoming only
the eighth player in major
league history to hit 600.
And there are all kinds of
people around the game
who couldn't be happier for
"This guy deserves
everything he gets," said
Philadelphia Phillies man-
ager Charlie Manuel, who
first managed Thome in
the minor leagues and then
again with the Cleveland
Indians. "When you say,
'Nice guy,' yeah, Thome's
a nice guy. But at the same
time, he's also been a great
hitter. I think they're going
to look at him as someone
who's just totally genuine
and played the game in his
own way and that was
good for baseball. They'll
look at him for who he is
as a person and the things
that he accomplished. I
mean, 600 home runs is a
tremendous feat."
Mark McGwire, now
the hitting coach for the
St Louis Cardinals, had a
one-word reaction "awe-
some" when asked for
his take on Thome.
"He's a stud. He's just
a country hard, country
strong, country hard-hit-
ting player," McGwire said.

Minnesota Twins designated hitter Jim Thome watches
from the dugout in a game against the Chicago White Sox
in Minneapolis on Sunday.

Thome is next on the all-
time list, and unlike several
of the other higher-profile

seen as clean. No admis-
sion or suspicion of steroid.
use for him. The 6-foot-3,
250-pound native of Peoria,
ll., is just a down-home guy
with a bundle of natural ath-
letic ability, from a family
with a father and brothers
who are just as big.
"I've been blessed,"
said Thome, speaking in
his clear, drawn-out, care-
ful voice and giving one of
those aw-shucks shoulder
shrugs he often does.
He's been asked about
his sterling reputation over
the years more times than
he can remember, realiz-
ing the skepticism toward
home run totals of his time
is a perception the public
will probably never forget.
"I think there's still some
sour feelings around, just
in general. Let's face it.
There were guys who did
that." But my thing was not
every guy did it You can't
punish everybody,"' Thome
said, adding: "You make
decisions in your life, and

with those decisions. But,
again, not every guy did it,

thing: Certain guys are
paying that price for that
Since signing with the
Twins before last season,
Thome has been a popu-
lar figure at Target Field
- both in the clubhouse
and for the paying custom-
ers in the seats. He hit 25
home runs last year in just
276 at-bats.
This season has been
more of a struggle. He's
been bothered by injuries
to his toe, oblique and quad-
riceps, and he has struck
out 55 times in 172 at-bats.
Thome has nine home runs
this year.
But the anticipation is
still there each time he
leaves the on-deck circle.
"It's an exciting thing
to step to home plate and
have the fans want you to
hit a homer," Thome said.
"It's pretty cool. Now I will
say this: There is a little bit
of pressure with that. And
it's up to you to try to relax
and know that if you come
here every day and you try
to approach the game the
same and you do your work
and you're diligent every
day with your program and
how you prepare, then all
that stuff hopefully in the
end will be there."

McIlroy happy to '<

get back to golf K A

Associated Press

- Rory Mcllroy is glad to
be back at work, especially
after the last two months.
Mcllroy said dur-
ing a press conference
Wednesday at the PGA
Championship that it's been
a steady stream of photo
shoots, celebrity gossip
and attention since his U.S.
Open victory last June.
The 22-year-old with
the tight, dark curls from
Northern Ireland became
a worldwide sensation
after rebounding from
a final-round collapse at
the Masters with his run-
away win at Congressional
Country Club where he set
a the U.S. Open scoring
record at 16-under 268.
Mcllroy instantly became
golf's new rising star, with
his movements tracked on
Twitter and people blogging
that he was certainly heir
apparent to Tiger Woods'
championship legacy. Even
McIlroy's recent friendship
with tennis star Caroline
Wozniacki had the Internet
ablaze with speculation
about their status.
All of it took the focus
off Mcllroy's golf. That
changed, he said, with
last week's showing, a

tie for sixth at the World
Golf Championship's
Bridgestone Invitational.
"It was a little bit of a
whirlwind after what hap-
pened at Congressional,"
Mcllroy said. "But it's nice
to feel like you're back out
there and finally working
hard again."
McIlroy couldn't pick
a better time to re-hone
his game. He tied for
third at the last two PGA
Championships and said it
may be the major that best
fits his talents.
"I love how the PGA of
America set the golf course
up at this event," he said.
"I think it really suits my
game, puts a premium on
It's probably a relief for
McIlroy to concentrate on
golf. It's one thing to play
out sinking the winning
birdie putt on the 18th hole
at Augusta National and
quite another to live out the
experience at 22, Mcllroy
As a teenager on the
range, "all you think about
is the golf, and you think
about how great it is to
hopefully be one of the
best players in the world,"
McIlroy said. "And you
never really think of the
other side of it, the atten-
tion, the spotlight"

Mcllroy's learning about
the other side.
He's said he's had fans
show up at his home in
Northern Ireland at all
hours, prompting regular
security at times. He told
a critic at the Irish Open to
"Shut up" on Twitter after
harsh comments about his
caddie, JP Fitzgerald.
It's been reported that
Mcllroy's choice to play
more events on the PGA
Tour next year was an
escape from the attention, a
chance to play somewhere
his life wouldn't be subject
to round-the-clock scrutiny.
Mcllroy said the deci-
sion about 2012 is in the
best interest of his career. It
doesn't hurt that American
fans have embraced him
like one of their own. They
stood several deep outside
the clubhouse here Tuesday
when Mcllroy came out,
children shrieking his name
for an autograph.
"I get a great response
from the crowds," he said.
"I feel like the reception
I get over here is like an
American player. It's nice
to have.".
A successful week at
the Atlanta Athletic Club
would certainly speed up
the fourth-ranked McIlroy's
rise to the top both here
and abroad.


Carter headed to national championship
Tiara Carter, 10, of Lake City is competing in the 2011 USSSA Junior Golf National
Championship this weekend at Mystic Dunes Golf Club in Celebration. Carter, the daughter
of Quail Heights Country Club superintendent Todd Carter and neice of pro Tammy Gainey,
played on the Gainesville Junior Golf Tour this summer and placed in the top three in her
age group at each of the eight tournaments she entered. Tiara is currently Player of the Year
in her 9-11 age group for Gainesville Junior Golf. She will play in the Gainesville Junior Golf
Tour's championship at the University of Florida course on Aug. 27.

Open, hobbling through an
18-hole playoff on a knee
that needed major surgery.
The following year, his mar-
riage fell apart amid allega-
tions of serial philandering.
This year, another leg inju-
ry kept him from playing in
either the U.S. Open or the
British Open.
After a three-month lay-
off, Woods returned last
week at Firestone but wasn't
a factor, finishing 18 strokes
behind winner Adam Scott.
Hardly anyone is picking
Woods to win this week.
Clarke, for one, misses
the good ol' days when

Woods was at his peak.
'Tiger was the best play-
er for a very long time and
he raised the bar in terms
of what everybody else did
and everybody else's prepa-
ration," said Clarke, who
captured the British Open
at age 42. 'Tiger has been
wonderful for the game. He
really has."
Donald recognizes that
a player such as Woods
appeals to -everyone from
the serious fan to someone
who doesn't know the dif-
ference between a birdie
and a bogey.
"The fans always enjoy

the hero, the one player
who does dominate that
they can cheer for," Donald
said. 'Tiger was that per-
son, obviously."
There are other possi-
ble stars, from 22-year-old
American Rickie Fowler to
19-year-old Japanese phe-
nom Ryo Ishikawa to 18-
year-old Matteo Manassero
of Italy. Twenty-somethings
Jason Day of Australia and
Dustin Johnson of the U.S.
are both ranked in the top
All provide hope that the
generation to come is in
good hands.

JAGS: Jones-Drew not making trip

to the tractor again and
Todd will be joining us
this evening," Del Rio said.
"Pulled him off the tractor
once again. He's a great
guy and .we think he's a
good veteran player. He'll
be able to come in and pick
up and help us preform
throughout the preseason
and we'll see from there."
Bouman had just fin-
ished raking hay when the
Jaguars called Monday. He
has been working out with
a high school football team
his brother coaches.
"For me, it hasn't
changed," Bouman said.
"Just come in and play,
do whatever's asked and
do the best job you can
and whatever happens
happens. I'm 39 years old
and I get to play a kid's
game. What else could you
Garrard tweaked his
back during practice
Thursday and hasn't done
anything on the field since.
Gabbert started the team's
scrimmage Saturday and
was solid despite a few
dropped passes.
He expects this to be
different, though.

"It's going to be fun,"
Gabbert said. 'Those reps
are going to be extremely
valuable, on film after the
game just to see what was
going on. That will be the
first live game I've been
in in this league, so it will
be fun.
"There are going to be
mistakes made, but we've
just got to learn from those
and correct them the next
Garrard will make the
trip to New England, but
nine teammates will stay
behind for treatment, rest
.or precautionary reasons.
Running back Maurice
Jones-Drew and defensive
end Aaron Kampman will
be among those who stay
home. Defensive tackle
Terrance Knighton and
tight end Marcedes Lewis
will travel, but likely won't
play, Del Rio said.
Starters will work just
a series or two, the coach
"I'm not really as inter-
ested in this first preseason
game with them as much
as I am getting an opportu-
nity to evaluate the rest of
the roster," Del Rio said.

All eyes will be on
Gabbert, though.
The former Missouri
standout had 40 touch-
downs, 18 interceptions
and an 18-8 record in two
seasons as a starter.
Jacksonville traded up
six spots to draft him,
believing his strong arm,
decision-making skills
and scrambling ability will
allow him to develop into a
franchise quarterback.
He's been able to
work with the first-team
offense the past five days,
repetitions that should
help him prepare for the
'The Is speed is differ-
ent," Gabbert said. "You're
going against starting NFL
players, so you've just got
to be on top of your game,
know the protections,
know the concepts and
know where to get the ball
out if they do blitz."
Del Rio said the team
is simply being cautious
with Garrard and that he
should be able to return
Saturday. But Del Rio also
expected Garrard to prac-
tice days after his back
tightened up.

& a


American heroes inspire

through courage, sacrifice

published a letter (June 6)
in which a reader, "Alison
in Ashland, Ore.," asked
you to name your heroes.
She asked that they not
be celebrities or family
members. A tsunami of
emails descended upon me
- many of them moving,
thought-provoking and
inspiring. I'm sorry that
space limitations prevent
me from printing more
of them but I thank you
ALL for your submissions.
Read on:
DEAR ABBY: Captain
C.B. "Sully" Sullenberger!
A humble man, under
intense pressure, who
saved the lives of his
entire U.S. Airways Flight
1549 on Jan. 15, 2009.
After landing his Airbus
in the Hudson River, he
refused to leave his ship
until all passengers and
crew had disembarked.
THAT is a true hero,
someone going about
his daily routine and
doing something extraor-
dinary. PAMELA E,
DEAR ABBY: I'm nomi-
nating two people: Stephen
Hawking, who has over-
come disastrous physical
and medical problems to
become the world's most
prominent physicist, and
Gustavo Dudamel, who
has brought intense life
to the L.A. Philharmonic
and the renewal of sym-
phonic music in gen-
eral, having lifted to new
heights Venezuela's "The

Abigail Van Buren
Program," which gives all
students in that country
the opportimity to make
music. NANCY E., OAK
DEAR ABBY: My per-
sonal hero is Rosa Parks. I
grew up in a racist house-
hold and was even beaten
for disagreeing. But the
courage it took for Rosa
to sit down and refuse to
get up moved mountains
for me. I thank her with all
my heart KENDRA IN
definition of hero has
long been the man who
stood in front of tanks in
Tiananmen Square. As a
teenager I watched in awe
at his strength of char-
acter and heart. In that
moment he showed us
what the world could be
if we, too, chose to stand
DEAR ABBY: It's Miep
Gies, one of the women
who helped hide Anne
Frank and her family.
She didn't hesitate before
saying "of course!" when
asked for help, and when
asked years after WWII,
she said she would do
it again in a heartbeat

because it was the right
thing to do.
As an LGBT and AIDS
activist, I'm often asked
why I do what I do if it
doesn't affect me directly.
I do it because ifs the
right thing. To me, if more
people thought like Mrs.
Gies, this world would
be a much better place to
live, so I try to remember
her in everything I do. -
DEAR ABBY: My hero
is Cesar Chavez. Before
he came along, workers
didn't even have a place to
relieve themselves while
working the fields under
all weather conditions. He
sacrificed his own health
and his life to help their
I read in our local news-
paper where somebody
referred to him as an
illegal alien, although he
was born in Arizona and
served in the U.S. Navy. If
that doesn't make some-
one an American, noth-
ing will. ARTHUR IN
are my heroes? My
vote goes to the Navy
SEALs who killed Bin
Laden! MARILYN W.,
READERS: Stay tuned.
I'll print more of your sub-
missions tomorrow.

* Write Dear Abby at
www.DearAbby.com or
P.O. Box 69440, Los
Angeles, CA 90069.


ARIES (March 21-April
19): Get the go-ahead
before you make any
changes at home that may
affect someone else. Send
out your resume or voice
your ideas at work and you
will find a way to ease into
a better position. Make a
positive change to your
relationship with someone
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Your actions will make
the biggest impression
on others. Stick to your
standards and you will be
happy with the result, even
if someone else complains.
Don't let a lover hold you
back. If you feel stifled, say
so and walk away if neces-
sary. *****
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): There is money to
be made, but you must
be reasonable about what
you are willing to pay for
something and how much
in debt you can go without
'R causing added stress. Love
is on the rise, but you can-
not jeopardize your finan-
cial situation to appease
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Keep things simple
and don't make impulsive
- decisions you may regret.
An emotional situation
may push you in a direc-
tion with which you don't
J feel comfortable. Prepare

Eugenia Last

to decline if you feel pres-
sured., Don't get angry
when all you have to do is
say no. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Have a little fun, but don't
break the bank. Do your
research before you buy
into a dream. A change of
location or visiting an unfa-
miliar place will give you a
false sense of what you can
or should do. Proceed with
caution. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Travel, socialize, try
something new or network
with people who share
your interests. The more
time you spend listen-
ing to others, the'greater
your own knowledge will
become. A gentle nudge
will help you get what you
want *****
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Love is in the stars,
and your emotions will be
difficult to control. Before
you offer too much, con-
sider your self-respect and
what you want in return.
You cannot lower your
own standards to get the
approval of others.**
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): A change may be
needed. Don't sit idle until
you are forced to make

a move, A jump-start is
required if you don't want
to suffer a loss along the
way. ****
Dec. 21): Look at different
lifestyles to come up with
a suitable solution that will
bring about the alterations
you need to be happy per-
sonally and professionally.
You don't have to over-
spend to impress. ***
22-Jan. 19): You'll be emo-
tional about the way things
are done and the way you
are treated. Don't take
the changes that someone
makes too personally. Look
forward with optimism
instead of backward with
regret ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Relationships will
be the key when it comes
to personal and profession-
al finances, contracts and
legal matters. Any false
impression you give will
backfire, leaving you in the
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Fix up your digs and
stay out of trouble. Get
your chores out of the way
and make changes to your
living space that are more
conducive to the way you
do things. Don't make an
impulsive move when all
that's required is a subtle
change. ****
