FIGHTING CHANCE


O'Brien family hopes new
treatment will aid son in
battling rare form of MD.

By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinsonplakecityreporter.com

Procko of O'Brien
have been working
toward a cure since
the day their son,
Evan, 7, was diagnosed with
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy,
a rare and particularly virulent
form of MD. Now they've final-
ly got reason to hope.
Evan, 7, is one of 12 children
in the United States, and the
only one from Florida, par-
ticipating in a clinical trial to
treat his Duchenne Muscular
Dystrophy. The experimen-
tal treatment, called Exon
Skipping, was devised by the
pharmaceutical company, AVI.
"This is a step forward for
everyone, and we feel real for-
tunate to be included in this,"
said Bill Procko, his father.
Since Aug. 18, Evan began
flying weekly to Children's
Nationwide Hospital in
Columbus, Ohio, for IV infu-
sions. Evan has a certain
genetic mutation of the illness
that made him eligible to par-
ticipate in the study.
Evan was just 4 when he
was diagnosed with Duchenne
Muscular Dystrophy in March
2008.
The disease results in
muscle degeneration, difficulty
walking, breathing and, even-
tually, death. It is caused by
a mutation in the dystrophin
gene which creates the protein
dystrophin, an important struc-
tural component within muscle
tissue.
One in 3,500 boys has the
disorder.
"However, its the most
lethal genetic disorder among
children world wide," Bill
Procko said.
Symptoms begin to show
around 3 or 4, Bill Procko said.

Battle over


disaster aid


brewing

By ANDREW TAYLOR
Associated Press
WASHINGTON A political battle between
the tea party-drivenHouse and the Democratic-
controlled Senate is threatening to slow money
to the government's main disaster aid account,
which is so low that new rebuilding projects
have been put on hold to help victims of
Hurricane Irene and future disasters.
The Federal Emergency ManagementAgency
has less than $800 million in its disaster coffers.
A debate over whether to cut spending else-
where in the federal budget to pay for tornado
and hurricane aid seems likely to delay legisla-
tion to provide the billions of dollars needed to
replenish FEMA's disaster aid in the upcoming
budget year.
House Majority Leader Eric. Cantor, R-Va.,
said the House will require offsetting spend-
ing cuts. Irene caused significant damage in
Virginia, and Cantor's own district sustained
damage from last week's earthquake.

Consumers gloomy but spending says otherwise


WASHINGTON (AP) Economists have
advice for anyone worried that consumers
are too fearful to keep spending- Look at
what they're doing, not what they're saying.
A survey of consumer confidence shows
that Americans were spooked early this
month by the standoff over the debt ceil-
ing, a downgrade of U.S. long-term debt
and a swoon in stock prices.
But maybe only temporarily.
If stock prices stay steady, consumers
will likely keep spending, and the economy
should improve modestly in the months
ahead, economists say. Most downplayed
the results of a Conference Board survey
released Tuesday that showed consumers
were in a gloomy mood in early August.
"They tend to register their anxiety


about the future in these surveys ... with-
out actually curtailing their spending," said
Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at
Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ.
The board said its consumer confidence
index sank to 44.5 in August, a 15-point
drop from July. That was a much sharper
fall than expected. And it brought the
index to its lowest point since April 2009.
A reading above 90 would show the econ-
omy was on solid footing.
The report coincided with similarly glum
results from a survey of business and con-
sumer sentiment in Europe. In that poll,
European retailers were pessimistic about
the future, and consumers were fearful of
losing their jobs. A major factor was Europe's
debt crisis.


For August, economists don't expect
Americans to cut their spending sharply, if at
all. Most foresee consumer spending, which
drives about 70 percent of the economy, ris-
ing faster in the July-September period than
in the preceding three months.
Ken Perkins of Retail Metrics Inc., a
research firm, noted that the mood of con-
sumers has been downbeat all year. Yet sales
at retail chains have remained relatively
healthy.
"There's been a little bit of a disconnect,"
Perkins said. "Consumers say one thing and
do another."
Consider Otis Herring of Brooklyn, N.Y.
Herring has cut back on eating out and buy-
ing comfort food. But a couple of days ago,
he spent about $80 shopping at an outlet


mall in Massachusetts.
"You splurge a little bit here and there,"
said Herring, 26, a dancer in Brooklyn.
"People haven't stopped shopping. They've
figured out what they can and can't do and
adjusted accordingly."
Ken Mayland, president of ClearView
Economics, said he doesn't even pay atten-
tion to the Conference Board's survey or
a similar one issued by Thomson Reuters
and the University of Michigan.
Mayland looks instead at the savings
rate, which reflects consumers' actual
behavior. On Monday, the government
said the household savings rate. dipped
to a four-month low of 5 percent in July.
Consumers spent money a bit faster than
they earned it


EVAN: New treatment could aid O'Brien boy in battle with rare form of MD

Continued From Page 1A


The average lifespan of
a child with Duchenne is
late teens to early 20s.
The children lose the
ability to walk before
eventually losing lung
and heart function, said
Kimberly Procko, Evan's
mother.
The couple first noticed
there was something
wrong with Evan about a
year before he was diag-
nosed, Bill Procko said.
Evan was having trouble
running, jumping and
climbing stairs.
"His physical activity
was different from kids his
own age," he said.
Initially they thought he
was just developing more
slowly than other chil-
dren but soon noticed his
calves seemed abnormally
enlarged, Bill Procko
said. The couple started
researching his symptoms
online and results kept
coming back to Duchenne.
Evan was taken to a
pediatrician in Lake City
who told the family not to
worry.
"We felt relieved for a
short while, but the symp-
toms wouldn't go away,"
he said. "We had him
officially diagnosed with a
DNA test."
It's heartbreaking to see
her son suffer, Kimberly
Procko said.
"Duchenne doesn't
wait," she said. "It's a daily
thing. To me its like a


Key Senate Democrats
said they'll oppose the idea
of offsetting cuts when a
bill funding FEMA gets
under way in the Senate.
Of $130 billion provided
in FEMA disaster funds
over the, past two decades,
some $110 billion has been
provided as emergency
funding in addition to the
annual budget.
Sen. Dick Durbin, D-
Ill., the Senate's No. 2
Democrat, said Tuesday
the number and cost of
disasters have grown dra-
matically over the past few
years and that it's unreal-
istic to require offsetting
spending cuts. Durbin pre-
sided over a recent hearing
on disaster costs.
"If (Cantor) believes that
we can nip and tuck at the
rest of the federal budget
and somehow take care of
disasters, he's totally out of
touch with reality," Durbin
said.
Sen. Mary Landrieu, a
Democrat from Louisiana
- her state is still
rebuilding six years after
Hurricane Katrina said
that she will take advan-
tage of a little-noticed provi-
sion in the recently passed
debt limit and budget deal
that permits Congress to
pass several billion dollars
in additional FEMA disas-
ter aid without budget cuts
elsewhere. The provision
in the new law would allow
at least $6 billion in disas-
ter aid to be added to the
budget for the fiscal year
starting Oct. 1.
Landrieu chairs the
Appropriations homeland
security panel responsible
for FEMA's budget, and
she's pushing back hard

consuming his body."
Once he loses an abil-
ity it's not something that
will come back, Kimberly
Procko said.
"Ift's scary for parents
not knowing how much
longer a child will be con-
sumed by monster until
treatment comes down,"
she said.
The family has been
waiting since his diagno-
sis for a clinical trial to
be approved by the FDA.
The trial was delayed sev-
eral times due to funding
issues.
'We kept hearing it was
around the corner then it
was delayed," Kimberly
Procko said.
Hearing that Evan had
been picked for the clinical
trial was "the greatest feel-
ing since the birth of our
children," Bill Procko said.
Exon Skipping is a gene
therapy in which the body
is fooled into reading the
mistake in the DNA like a
normal sentence instead
of an error, he said. The
injections don't produce
everything he needs,
but it has the potential to
increase Evan's lifespan
significantly.
"It's our greatest hope
right now to buy time
.before a cure," Bill Procko
said.
For each infusion, Evan
goes to Ohio on Tuesdays,
receives an hour-long IV


against a GOP demand that
boosts in disaster relief be
"paid for" with cuts else-
where in the budget
The House FEMA fund-
ing measure, passed in
early June, provides $1 bil-
lion in immediate disaster
funding paid for by cuts to
a loan program backed by
the Obama administration
to encourage the produc-
tion offuel-efficientvehicles
and taps into Obama, pri-
orities like first responder
grants to add $850 million
to the administration's $1.8
billion disaster aid request
for 2012.
"We should address
emergency aid in the way
we traditionally have in the
past without political
strings attached," Landrieu
said. Her version of the leg-
islation will provide a signifi-
cant increase in disaster aid
funding without offsetting
spending cuts as permitted
under the just-passed bud-
get deal, she said.
Landrieu isn't getting a
lot of help from the White
House. Its February
request for disaster fund-
ing next year is insufficient
to fund pending demands
from past disasters like
hurricanes Katrina, Rita
and Gustav and the massive
Tennessee floods of last
spring and it threatens
to slow rebuilding efforts
in Joplin, Mo., and the
Alabama towns devastated
by tornadoes last spring.
The shortfalls in FEMA's
disaster aid account have
been obvious to lawmakers

Initially Evan was ner-
vous about the treatment
"He doesn't like nee-
dles," Bill Procko said. "No
one does really, but after
a while he relaxed and
found it wasn't so bad."
Before the treatment
could begin, a muscle
biopsy had to be per-
formed.
It was a mix of emotions
for the family when Evan
had his first treatment,
said Kimberly Procko.
They were elated for the

but it was hard to see him

said.
Also the family had to

Kimberly Procko said. "It's
just so overwhelming."

As a result, funds to

"It could buy us some
time, or it might not," Bill
Procko said. 'We don't
relax and think all things
are taken care of. They're
definitely not"
Currently, Evan is in
the first grade and doing
well in school, Kimberly
Procko said.
"You probably wouldn't
notice anything is wrong
with him," she said. "It's
not a sad story unless you
look at the future and don't
try to make it better."
Bill Procko said his son
is "just a ball of fun."
"He's always laughing
and playing with his broth-
er (Billy,.11)," he said.
Evan can get really frus-
trated sometimes because
he can't participate in
certain activities like other
children, Kimberly Procko
said.
"In his heart, he was.

said.
The "golden age" is
said to be 7 for children
with Duchenne Muscular
Dystrophy, Bill Procko
said.
"They're at the peak of
their physical abilities of
life at this point," he said.
"It starts, to decline after-
wards."
The golden age gives
the illusion that the dis-


request still left the disaster
fund short by $2 billion to
$4.8 billion for the upcom-
ing fiscal year. Those are
figures the agency provid-
ed to Congress last spring
before Irene or the tor-

Procko said.
"However, it's the natu-
ral growth pushing back
the devastating effects,"
he said.
As far as Evan is con-
cerned he is going to grow
up, Kimberly Procko said.
"He doesn't realize it
gets worse, or fatal," she
said. "He said when he
grows up he wants to be a
cook. He loves to cook."
Sometimes she is at a
loss to to explain the disor-
der to him.
. "The heartbreaking
fimes come when he asks
directly, 'Mom can I grow
up and drive you around?'"
Kimberly Procko said.
"Deep in my heart I hope
he can move his arms when
he's old enough to drive."
The community has
been very supportive
of the family in provid-
ing donations, Kimberly
Procko said. They are
asking for continued sup-
port, and donations can


be made via their website
www.SaveOurSon.org.
"We don't expect people
to have to do anything and
thankful for what they can
do," she said.
Any amount of dona-
tions matter to the family,

Small donations add up.
Donations go directly
toward researching cures
for the disorder, she said.
Years ago polio seemed
like an impossible thing to
conquer, Bill Procko said.
However, donations came
in to help eradicate the
disease.

just waiting for the chance

Young

Obama

resident Obama
roasted into the
White House thanks
in part to the youth
vote, individuals
aged 18-29 who bought into his
vague promise to bring change.
During Mr. Obama's term in
office, however, many of this
group known as Millennials -
have been forced to learn how
to subsist on pocket change.
This isn't quite what they were
expecting when they turned out
in historic droves in 2008.
According to a recent poll
commissioned by Generation
Opportunity, 57 percent of
Millennials participating said.
they will learn more about the
policy positions of presidential
candidates in the 2012 election
than they did in 2008. This is
bad news for Mr. Obama, who
is encumbered with a record
that hurts young adults. His
$825 billion so-called stimulus
robbed the private sector of
cash needed for job growth,
while Obamacare will squeeze
money from these healthiest of
Americans through fines and
forced participation to subsidize
treatment for old sick people.
"Young people are disil-
lusioned after 2008, when the
message was change," points
out Surbhi Godsay of the youth-
research organization CIRCLE.
The unemployment rate for
16-24 year-olds is 18.1 percent,
down from the record-breaking
high of 19.1 percent a year ago,
while 25-34 year-olds face a
rate of 9.7 percent, higher than
the national average. Not help-
ing Mr. Obama's re-election
chances is a report that this
group retains no particular
political loyalty, according
to Paul Conway, president
of Generation Opportunity.
"Millennials are solutions-
oriented," he told Anneke E.
Green of The Washington
Times. "They have their own
recommendations, they want
to be heard, and they want
results."
The problem is, things just
keep getting worse.

A defense of scholarly life


I A 1 s a former uni-
versity professor,
Pope Benedict XVI
spoke from experi-
nce Aug. 19 when
he addressed young univer-
sity professors in Madrid. He
encouraged the professors to
resist pressures on the acade-
my to focus on job skills rather
than a broader education,
which I translate to mean the
old ideal of the scholarly life.
Given the utilitarian approach
to education most American
universities are embarked on,
the pope's speech interested
me. The United States needs a
Benedict who speaks passion-
ately and often about the true
role of professors.
"At times one has the idea
that the mission of a univer-
sity professor nowadays is
exclusively that of forming
competent and efficient profes-
sionals capable of satisfying the
demand for labor at any given
time," the pontiff said, accord-
ing to a transcript released by
Vatican Radio. "One also hears
it said that the only thing that
matters at the present moment
is pure technical ability.
'"This sort of utilitarian
approach to education is in fact
becoming more widespread,
even at the university level,
promoted especially by sectors
outside the university. All the
same, you who, like myself,
have had an experience of.
the university, and now are
members of the teaching staff,
surely are looking for some-
thing more lofty and capable
of embracing the full measure
of what it is to be human. We
know that when mere utility
and pure pragmatism become
the principal criteria, much
is lost and the results can be
tragic."
In most parts of the United
States, professors, especially

those at public universities,-are
fast becoming pawns in political
agendas that are discounting
their value. Driven by budget
'crises that give them conve-
nient cover, many elected offi-
cials, such as Texas Gov. Rick
Perry and Florida Gov. Rick
Scott, make no secret of their
intentions.to "reinvent" public
higher education by operating
it like a.business.
For generations, scholars
have cautioned about the
tendency in America to see
everything, including university
education, through the prism
of the free market. More than a
decade ago, for example, soci-
ologist Robert Bellah argued
that freedom in the market is
tyranny in other "spheres" such
as the professions, politics and
education.
He said that a decent soci-
ety depends on the autonomy.
of the spheres. When money
takes over politics, only a
shadow of democracy remains.
Similarly, when money takes
over higher education, deci-
sions are made based on the
bottom line, and professional
authority is cast aside.
Departments and programs
and faculty are assessed by
their productivity, meaning the
amount of dollars they bring
in and the number of gradu-
ates they churn out. Under
such conditions, universities no
longer are fulfilling their real
mission.


American universities should
not totally ignore the values
and practices of the market-
place. They cannot viably exist
if they do. But our universities
must not become an industry
redesigned to be operated like,
say, the U.S. automobile and
home loan industries. -
Call me out of touch, but I
subscribe to the late Cardinal
John Henry Newman's idea
of the university. The priest,
scholar and poet who founded
what is now University College
Dublin, NeWvman argued that
the university does not exist for
the sole purpose of conveying
information and expertise.
"A university," he wrote,
"educates the intellect to rea-
son well in all matters, to reach
out towards truth, and grasp it."
He further stated "the general
principles of any study you may
learn by books at home; but the
detail, the color, the tone, the
air, the life which makes it live.
.in us, you must catch all these
from those in whom it lives
already."
For Newman, as it is with
Benedict, the university is
a place where students live
for scholarship, where labor
and leisure go hand in hand,
where students sacrifice,
where they fashion their lives
around their studies and con-
templation.
I dare say that at its core,
American higher education
is being coarsened as our
universities increasingly
adopt the business model and
forsake the scholarly life. I
have no doubt that this trend
is having a negative effect on
our social order. We are losing
the sense of what it means to
be human.

Lately


learned


lessons

My parents told
me as a boy that
it seemed they'd
been my age
just a short time
before.
"It goes by fast," they coun-
seled. "Enjoy every moment,
best you can, and don't waste a
second."
Made no sense at all at the
time.
To a boy, then a teen, life
passed slowly.
Waiting for Christmas, then
to be old enough to drive with
the clock at a crawl I was sure
those moments would never
arrive.
As most of you know well,
though, the calendar picks up
speed considerably as things
progress.
It's kind of like a locomo-
tive, spinning its massive iron
wheels at first, seemingly
going nowhere,.then gaining
inevitable momentum, until the.
scenery's no more than a blur.
Makes sense, I guess.
To a 6-year-old in June,
Christmas is far too distant to
be more than a glimmer. Think
about it. To a child that.age, six
months is nearly one-tenth the
.total time he's walked the earth.'-
To a man of 52, however, six
months is but a sliver. Anyone
my age can do six months
standing on his head, as is
-.often said in less sanguine cir-
cumstances.
In a philosophy class in col-
lege we read a book called
'"The Phenomenology of
Internal Time Consciousness"
yes, that's the actual title -
which may or may not have
said something along the same
lines. Frankly, I'm still not sure
what it said.
Be that as it may, there's no
cause for alarm on account of
any of this.
With age doesn't always
come wisdom, but certainly
comes perspective. Sometimes
that's as close as we get, but
sometimes that's enough.
As for me, I'm happy to be
right where I am, both in space
and time.
Nonetheless, if there's any-
body out there under, say, 25 .
reading this, listen carefully.
You may not think it, but the
clock's ticking. And it's only
going to get louder.

Needed: Wider mortgage refinancing plan


e economy needs
I boost to create
Jobs, but Republicans
I in Congress are
A opposed to even the
most modest stimulus propos-
als. The Obama administration
has to find a way around this
dilemma.
Since 2008, well-regarded
economists have been argu-
ing for a mortgage refinancing
plan that would allow more
homeowners to take advantage
of low interest rates without
rewarding the irresponsible or
adding to the deficit. Last week
The New York Times reported
that the Obama administration
is again considering such a
plan. This time it must follow
through.
Millions of homeowners
can't take advantage of interest
rates near 4 percent because
federal rules forbid refinanc-
ing by those who owe more


on their homes than they're
worth. The idea under consid-
eration, which mirrors a bill
co-authored by Sens. Barbara
Boxer, D-Calif., and Johnny
Isakson, R-Ga., would allow
homeowners to refinance fed-
erally guaranteed loans regard-
less of their home's value but
only if they're current on their
mortgage payments.
This does not increase gov-
ernment risk. It does the oppo-
site, since reducing monthly
payments makes default less
likely. By preventing many
foreclosures, it would help sta-
bilize the housing market and
cover most of the program's
costs.
R. Glenn Hubbard, chairman
of the Council of Economic
Advisers under President
George W. Bush, was an origi-
nal proponent of this idea. Now
dean of Columbia's Graduate
School of Business, he has


cowritten op-eds and devel-
oped research supporting this
approach, focusing on its stim-
ulative effects. GOP Senate
leader Mitch McConnell also
pushed for a similar plan in
2009.
It could save homeowners
almost $85 billion every year
- an $850 billion boost to the
economy over 10 years, since
the money could be spent on
other things.
The loudest objections come
from bondholders, who would
make smaller profits. But as
Hubbard and others note,
bondholders know the mort-
gages in which they invest
can be refinanced any time;
that's why they get generous
returns. Besides, they ben-
efited enormously from federal
action earlier in the economic
crisis.
This mortgage program
would benefit those who've


suffered most and gotten no
help: middle-class homeown-
ers who have seen their home
values plummet but still
have kept up the payments.
One study estimated that 61
percent of the eligible mort-
gages are worth $100,000 to
$300,000; these are mostly
modest homes.
Details of the plan are unre-
solved. Boxer has asked the
head of the Federal Housing
Finance Agency to implement
most of her bill on his own.
Others call for legislation.
However it gets done, it
makes sense. How many ideas
out there would boost the
economy, help .responsible
homeowners and stabilize the
housing market all at little
or no cost? The Obama admin-
istration should put all of its
energy behind this one.

Does automation in the air dull pilot skill?


By JOAN LOWY
Associated Press

WASHINGTON Are
airline pilots forgetting how
to fly? As planes become
ever more reliant on auto-
mation to navigate crowd-
ed skies, safety officials
worry there will be more
deadly accidents traced to
pilots who have lost their
hands-on instincts in the
air.
Hundreds of people
have died over the past five
years in "loss of control"
accidents in which planes
stalled during flight or got
into unusual positions that
pilots could not correct. In
some cases, pilots made
the wrong split-second
decisions, with catastroph-
ic results for example,
steering the plane's nose
skyward into a stall instead
of down to regain stable
flight.
Spurred in part by feder-
al regulations that require
greater reliance on com-
puterized flying, the airline
industry is suffering from
"automation addiction,"
said Rory Kay, an airline
captain and co-chair-
man of a Federal Aviation
Administration committee
on pilot training. "We're
seeing a new breed of acci-
dent with these state-of-the
art planes."
Pilots use automated
systems to fly airliners for
all but about three min-
utes of a flight the takeoff
and landing. Most of the








Biv /


time pilots are program-
ming navigation directions
into computers rather than
using their hands on con-
trols to fly the plane. They
have few opportunities to
maintain their skills by fly-
ing manually, Kay's advi-
sory committee warns.
Fatal airline accidents
have decreased dramati-
cally in the U.S. over the
past decade. However, The
Associated Press inter-
viewed pilots, industry
officials and aviation safety
experts who expressed
concern about the implica-
tions of decreased oppor-
tunities for manual flight,
and reviewed more than a
dozen loss-of-control acci-
dents around the world.
Airlines and regulators
discourage or even pro-
hibit pilots from turning
off the autopilot and fly-
ing planes themselves,
the committee said. Safety
experts say they're seeing
cases in which pilots who
are suddenly confronted
with a loss of computer-
ized flight controls don't
appear to know how to
respond immediately, or
they make errors some-
times fatally so.
A draft FAA study found
pilots sometimes "abdi-
cate too much responsibil-
ity to automated systems."
Because these systems are
so integrated in today's
planes, one malfunctioning
piece of equipment or a sin-
gle bad computer. instruc-
tion can suddenly cascade


into a series of other fail-
ures, unnerving pilots who
have been trained to rely
on the equipment
The study examined
46 accidents and major
incidents, 734 voluntary
reports by pilots and oth-
ers as well as data from
more than 9,000 flights in
which a safety official rode
in the cockpit to observe
pilots in action. It found
that in more than 60 per-
cent of accidents, and 30
percent of major incidents,
pilots had trouble manual-
ly flying the plane or made
mistakes with automated
flight controls.

August is deadliest month for U.S. in Afghanistan


By AMIR SHAH
Associated Press

KABUL, Afghanistan
August has become the
deadliest month for U.S.
troops in the nearly 10-
year-old war in Afghanistan,
where international forces
have started to go home
and let Afghan forces take
charge of securing their
country.
A record 66 U.S. troops
have died so far this month,
eclipsing the 65 killed in
July 2010, according to a
tally by The Associated
Press.
This month's death toll
soared when 30 Americans
most of them elite Navy
SEALs were killed in
a helicopter crash Aug.
6. They were aboard a
Chinook shot down as
it was flying in to help
Army Rangers who
.had come under fire in
Wardak province. It was
the single deadliest inci-
dent of war being waged
by Afghan and U.S.-led
coalition forces and
insurgents.
On Tuesday, Afghan
President Hamid Karzai
used the start of a three-
day Muslim holiday to
plead with insurgents to
lay down their arms and
help rebuild the nation.
Karzai wants Afghan secu-
rity forces to take the lead
in defending and protect-
ing the nation by the end
of 2014.
Karzai spoke on Eid
al-Fitr, a holiday mark-
ing the end of the holy
month of Ramadan, which
is observed by millions of
Muslims around the world.
The month of dawn-to-


dusk fasting and extended
prayer began Aug. 1.
Violence is being report-
ed across the nation despite
the U.S.-led coalition's
drive to rout insurgents
from their strongholds in
the south.

At the same time, the
U.S. military has begun
to implement President
Barack. Obama's order
to start withdrawing the
33,000 extra troops he dis-
patched to the war. He
ordered 10,000 out this
year and another 23,000
withdrawn by the sum-
mer of 2012, leaving about
68,000 U.S. troops on the
ground. Although major
combat units are not
expected to start leaving


until late fall, two National
Guard regiments compris-
ing about 1,000 soldiers
started going home last
month.
Aside from the 30
Americans killed in the
Chinook crash, south-
west of Kabul,
23 died this
month in
Kandahar
and Helmand

Japan's parliament

elects Noda new

prime minister


By MALCOLM FOSTER
Associated Press

TOKYO Japan's par-
liament elected former
Finance Minister Yoshihiko
Noda as the new prime
minister on Tuesday -- the
country's sixth leader in
five years.
.A fiscal conservative,
Noda faces a host of daunt-
ing problems, including the
post-tsunami recovery and
nuclear crisis, and a slug-
gish economy and the yen's
surge, which hurts Japan's
exporters.
'Noda, who was elect-
ed Monday 'to head the
ruling Democratic Party
of Japan, succeeds the
unpopular Naoto Kan, who
officially resigned earlier
Tuesday with his Cabinet
after nearly 15 months in
office.
.Noda, 54, must seek to
unify the fractious ruling
party and restore public
confidence in politics amid


widespread disgust over
squabbling in parliament
and perceived lack of lead-
ership in the wake of the
triple disaster.
He is a "moderate voice"
in the ruling party, Sheila
Smith, a senior fellow at
the Council on Foreign
Relations in Washington,
wrote in a comment "He
has a steady temperament
and a reputation for fair-
ness in a party where loy-
alties have been severely
tested of late."
Given the pressing prob-
lems at home, Noda will
likely focus on the disaster
reconstruction and other
domestic matters.
A staunch supporter of
the U.S.-Japan security alli-
ance, Noda has angered
China and South Korea for
comments about convicted
wartime leaders revered
at the Yasukuni Shrine in
Tokyo, where the souls of
all Japan's war dead are
enshrined.

Golden takes over
as coach for
CHS volleyball.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
After two years coach-
ing the junior varsity,
Rebecca Golden steps up
to the varsity to take over
for Columbia High's volley-
ball team. Golden takes the
reins from Casie King, who
departed after the summer.
"I'm ecstatic about the
opportunity," Golden said.
'We're extremely young,
but I'm ready to bring that
college knowledge to the
girls."
Golden will be without a
senior during her first year
as coach with only three
juniors on the roster. Kelbie
Ronsonet, Jessie Bates and
Ashleigh Bridges return
from last season.
Ronsonet will miss at
least two weeks after injur-
ing herself during a con-
ditioning drill, but Golden
has a secret weapon com-
ing in as a freshman.
"Jara Courson has stood
out," she said. "She's going
to be a player to watch even
though she's playing varsity
as a freshman."
Despite the lack of expe-
rience, Golden expects
Columbia to contend.
"I have big expectations,''
she said. "I'm a huge com-
petitor. I'm going to push
them to be the best they
can be. The good news is
that we'll have pretty much
the same group next year,
so we can build this for the
future."
Golden is familiar with
most of the group after hav-
ing coached them on the

junior varsity.
"I've coached them all
except the incoming fresh-
man in some capacity," she
said.
Columbia will also enter
a new district without the
likes of Gainesville and
Buchholz high schools.
Golden believes that will
be in the favor of the Lady
Tigers as they try'to cap-
ture a district crown.
"It's kind of nice to be
without those guys," she
said. "We're excited about,
the new district and it
looks to be very competi-
tive. Atlantic Coast and St.
Augustine will bring good
competition."


Lady Indians
open season
with Oak Hall.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
FORT WHITE Fort
White High volleyball is
bringing in one of the best
to open the 2011 season.
The Lady Indians host
Oak Hall School at 6 p.m.
today, preceded by the junior
varsity game at 5 p.m.
Fort White is coming
off three consecutive play-
off seasons under coach
Doug Wohlstein. The Lady
Indians were 13-14 last


year and are 83-63 overall
in Wohlstein's five years.
Fort White returns
senior setter Ali Wrench,
junior outside hitter Lync&
Stalnaker and junior libero
Ashley Beckman. Wrench
had 655 assists last year
and a 93 percent service
rate with 55 aces. Stalnaker
recorded more than 200
digs and 120 kills.
Joining the varsity are
seniors Caitlin Congi and
Carson Robison, both out-
side hitters, and sopho-
mores Mallorie Godbey,
Leah Johnson and Emily
Roach.
Fort White's new align-
ment is in District 5-4A


with Bradford, Interlachen,
Keystone Heights, Santa Fe
and Williston high schools.
The Lady Indians finished
as district runners-up to
Santa Fe the last two years.
Keystone Heights also won
district in 2010.
Oak Hall is another story
altogether.
The Eagles have made
the state playoffs 23 times,
including the last 17 years
in a row. Oak Hall was Class
1A state runner-up last year,
its fourth state runner-up
season to go with two state
championships.
Fort White begins dis-
trict play at Interlachen' at
6 p.m. on Thursday.

Barber


Local golfer is
member of 2011
Walker Cup team.
From staff reports

Local native and Auburn
junior Blayne Barber will
represent the United States
in the 2011 Walker Cup held
at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club
in Scotland Sept 10-11, the
USGA announced Sunday.
"I set my goal a few years
ago to make this team and
I just tried to work towards
that," said Barber. "I'm very
very excited to have this
opportunity to represent my
country and the people of
Auburn."
Ranked as the No. 13 ama-
teur in the world, Barber
was selected as part of the
10-man American side to
take on Team Great Britain
and Ireland.
The path was not always
clear for Barber, however,
even after a tie for third in
2011 U.S. Amateur stroke
play sent him into the round
of 64 as the fourth seed.
"I really thought my
chances were done after
match play at the Amateur,"
said Barber on his round of


64 exit "I was a little disap-
pointed. To get that call
today, telling me I made the
team, was surprising and
exciting."
Barber has earned 12
amateur top-10s in the last
two years and helped lead
the United States to victory
over Team Europe at the
2011 Palmer Cup, finishing
with a 2-1-1 record.
Barber originally signed
to play for Central Florida
under Nick Clinard, who later
accepted the head coaching
position at Auburn. Barber
opted to follow Clinard to
Auburn and redshirt his
sophomore season.
"I know I'm exactly to be
where God wants me to be,"
said Barber on his transfer
to Auburn. "It took a lot of.
prayer to help me with the
decision. Coach Clinard has
been extremely instrumen-
tal in my progress. He will
be coming to Scotland, as
well."
The Walker Cup will not
be Barber's first meeting
with his national teammates.
"Everyone on the team are
awesome guys," said Barber.
"They've all been very
supportive of one another
through the years."

DEAR ABBY


Swimmer who 'loses' trunks

must learn to cool his jets


DEAR ABBY: After a
messy divorce, I moved
with my 17-year-old daugh-
ter "Allie" to Florida. I'm
thrilled that she has adjust-
ed so quickly to the lifestyle
here, which revolves around
the beach and backyard
swimming pools. Allie now
has a boyfriend, "Shane,"
who is 19 and in college. I
like him, and it appears he
likes me too maybe a little
too much.
Shane lives with his
parents down the street,
and he's often at our house
when he and Allie aren't
in school Because I work
at home and my office
is adjacent to the pool, I
can't seem to escape him.
When Allie is doing her
homework or talking on the
phone, Shane swims alone
and does a fair amount of
"preening." I have the feel-
ing he does it to gain my
attention. The other day,
after jumping in the pool, he
surfaced without his swim
trunks and said the pool.
jets had ripped them off
him. Then he got out of the
pool and put them back on
in front of me. When I told
him I found the situation
embarrassing, he shrugged
and smiled, leaving me feel-
ing awkward.
Being from the Midwest,
rm used to people behaving
and dressing more modest-
ly. Here, it seems like any-
thing goes, and the skimp-

ier the clothing, the better.
Am I a prude, or should I
listen to my instincts that
something is not right? And
what do I say to Shane that
will allow me to keep my
dignity? TAKEN ABACK .
IN TAMPA
DEAR TAKEN ABACK=
The pool jets did not rip the
trunks off your daughter's
boyfriend. It appears she
is involved with an exhibi-
tionist If it happens again,
tell him you find what he's
doing to be disrespectful
and offensive, and if he
wants to parade his short-
comings at his own home
that's his privilege, but at
yours his pants should stay
on at all times or you'll
tell his mother. Shame on
Shane.

DEAR ABBY: I have
been through a lot'and
have never given up. Lately,
however, I am having sec-
ond thoughts. Everyone in
my family is an addict or
a recovering one. I left my
ex-husband because of his
drinking. My son has been
in rehab and relapsed many


times. I have gone through
every last financial and emo-
tional option with him.
At this point, I'm feel-
ing like all hope is gone.
I'm writing to you because
I am trying to find some
thread of life to help me
understand why bad things
keep happening to me. How
do I squeeze out one last
drop of hope when my cup
of faith is empty? I want
to find a purpose to all the
pain. STRUGGLING FOR
ANSWERS, PARK CITY,
UTAH
DEAR STRUGGLING:
Volumes have been written
by authors and philosophers
trying to explain why bad
things happen to good peo-
ple. In your case, it appears
you were born into a family
with a genetic predisposi-
tion to addiction. Because
the behavior of people with
substance abuse problems
was familiar to you, you
married another one.
If you haven't already
'done so, attend some meet-
Sings of support groups
for families and friends of
people who have addictions.
Such groups are listed in
Your phone directory and
on the Internet Believe me,
you are not alone in your
search for answers.
