The City Council voted 4-
1 to fund the Franklin Street
Improvement Project up to
$200,000 from Series 2011

Councilman Jake Hill dis-
sented.
The project is actually
expected to cost $148,000,
said City Manager Wendell
Johnson.
Work on getting improve-
ments to the street have
been five years in the
making, said Lake Shore
Hospital Authority Manager
Jack Berry.
"I think they did the right
thing," he said. "We're glad.
We're thankful"
Franklin Street is the only


entrance to Shands Lake

An officer with the Lake City
Police Department was seriously
injured in a Tuesday evening crash
when his patrol cruiser and another
car collided.
Authorities had not released the
names of the people involved in the
crash by press time.
Capt. John Blanchard, Lake City
Police Department public infor-


nation officer, was in Gainesville
where the injured officer was being
treated.
"We had an officer involved in
a traffic crash earlier this evening
and he was injured in the crash,"
Blanchard said Tuesday evening.
"He was flown to Gainesville, where
he is being evaluated. I do not
believe the injuries are life-threaten-
ing, but I'm waiting for an update
from the hospital."
The crash occurred at the inter-


section of Sisters Welcome Road and
U.S. 90. Lake City Police Department
reports indicate the first call came in
at 7:11 p.m.
Traffic was rerouted for more
than three hours as first responders
attended to crash victims and cor-

people that formed on each corner

HOLLYWOOD -
Officials said a
7-year-old boy collapsed
while playing football with
his father. He died later at
a Hollywood hospital.

.Gov. Scott open
to Glades drilling
TALLAHASSEE Gov.
Rick Scott on Tuesday
waded into the bubbling
controversy over Florida's
Everglades by saying that
he could potentially sup-
port drilling in the famed
swampland.
Instead of joining with
other Florida politicians
who are dead set against
the idea, Scott said that
he could support a "cau-
tious" amount of drilling.
He made his remarks dur-
ing a question and answer
session before members
of The Economic Club of
Florida.
"With regard to the
Everglades, I think we
have to be very cautious
if there's going to be any
more drilling. It's my
understanding at least, we
haven't had any problems
in the Everglades to date,"
Scott said.

escalation in a series of
disputes between the chief
and other senior city offi-
cials.
The city manager,
Johnny Martinez, relieved
Chief Miguel Exposito
of his duties following
a morning meeting and
appointed an interim chief
to lead the 1,100-officer
Miami Police Department.
Exposito, who was sus-
pended with pay, could
be fired by the City
Commission in a matter of
days.
Exposito has been with
the department since 1974
and chief since November
2009. In recent months,
however, he has been
criticized for a series of
fatal police shootings of
African-American suspects
and has become embroiled
in a high-profile spat with
Mayor Tomas Regalado
over raids on video gaming
parlors.

2 dead, 4 injured

MARIANNA -
Authorities said two
people died when their car
crossed into the path of an
oncoming ambulance in
the Florida Panhandle.
The Monday evening
crash also injured two
others in the Toyota and
two paramedics in the
ambulance. The Florida
Highway Patrol said the


collision caused the ambu-
lance to flip onto its side.
The driver and a pas-
senger in the Toyota's
backseat were killed. Their
names have not been
released.

Scott: Tax cuts,
few rules will help
TALLAHASSEE Gov.
Rick Scott insists that tax
cuts and less red tape are
curing Florida's economic
woes.
Scott, who gave a
speech Tuesday to an eco-
nomics club, remains con-
vinced that his approach
to jumpstarting the state's
economy will work.
Scott, who ran for gover-
nor using the slogan "Let's
Get to Work," has called
for large tax cuts, repeal-
ing state agency rules and
putting additional limits
on lawsuits as a way to
help Florida become more
attractive to business.

Astronauts' tracks seen in new moon photos


By SETH BORENSTEIN
AP Science Writer

WASHINGTON A spacecraft circling
the moon has snapped the sharpest photos
ever of the tracks and trash left behind by
Apollo astronauts in their visits from 1969
to 1972.
Images taken by NASA's Lunar
Reconnaissance Orbiter from 13 to 15
miles up show the astronauts' paths when
they walked on the moon, as well as ruts
left by a moon buggy. Experts could even
identify the backpacks astronauts pitched
out of their lunar landers before they
returned to Earth.
"What we're seeing is a trail," said Arizona
State University geology professor Mark
Robinson, the orbiter's chief scientist "It's
totally awesome."
However, the photos weren't close enough
to see individual bootprints, Robinson said.
The pictures were taken two weeks
ago and show the landing sites for Apollo
12, 14 and 17. The closest images are of
the 1972 Apollo 17 site, the last moon


mission.
Apollo 17 Commander Eugene Cernan
wrote in an email to The Associated Press
that the photo gives him a chance to revisit
those days, "this time with a little nostalgia
and disappointment. Nostalgia because
those special days are fondly etched in my
memory and -disappointment because it
looks like now we will not be going back
within the days I have left on this planet"
Two years ago, images from the same
spacecraft from 30 and 60 miles out showed
fuzzier images. But this year the orbiter
dipped down to take about 300,000'more
close-ups. The trails left by the astronauts
are clear, but the places where backpacks.
were discarded, Apollo 17's moon buggy,
and the bottom parts of the three lunar
landers are blurry.
"You have to really look at it for a long
time to .figure out what you're looking
at," Robinson said. For example, when
it comes to the moon buggy he said, "if
you squint really hard you can resolve the
wheels and that the wheels are slightly
turned to the left."


ASSOCIATED PRESS
This image made available by NASA shows paths left by walking astronauts, single lines, and
lunar buggy tracks, parallel lines, from the 1972 U.S. Apollo 17 moon mission.


4-vehicle Labor Day crash left 1 injured, reports show


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

Only one person
required hospital care
following the four-vehicle
wreck that snarled traf-
fic for more than 30 min-
utes Monday afternoon on
State Road 247 (Branford
Highway), police reports
said. A photo of the crash
appeared in yesterday's
edition but details did not
become available until
after press time.
Jessie Bishop, 33, of
Branford, was taken to the
Lake City Medical Center
for treatment of injuries he
suffered in the wreck.
The crash occurred at
5:23 p.m. Monday on State
Road 247, about a half-mile


south of Southwest Troy
Street, and left four vehi-
cles strewn along the road-
way in the wake of mul-
tiple collisions. Authorities
blocked the roadway and
rerouted traffic for at least
30 minutes as the debris
was removed.
According to Florida
Highway Patrol reports,
Bishop, was traveling
south on State Road 247
in a 2005 Ford Focus.
A 2010 Chevrolet pick-
up truck driven by Jeremy
Dyal,,36, with Bailey Dyal,
12, and Corbin Dyal, 10,
all of Mayo, as passen-
gers, was traveling north
on the roadway, as was a
1991 Nissan pickup truck
driven by Kenneth Miller,
22, of Bell, and a 1999


in lower than anticipated and money is left
over for Franklin Street.
Johnson said he has supported the
Franklin Street project from the start but
felt using CRA funding would not be in
the best interest of the city. Initially it
was believed the project would cost up to
$250,000, which would significantly deplete
the CRA trust fund.
"We can't spend our CRA funds on one
project," he said. 'We have to look at the
big picture."
GTC Design Group LLC was con-
tracted to provide and design and engi-
neering services for the project May 2.
The design from the company came in
Sept. 1.
"We're ready to move forward," he said.
"There was no delay on the part of the
city."
Hill said he felt like the hospital should
contribute 50-50 to the project rather than

According to witnesses,

in the northbound lane
of State Road 247. Dyal
steered to the left in an
attempt to avoid Bishop's
vehicle but his pickup was
struck on its left rear side
and slid off the east side
of the roadway and over-

A man was reportedly standing near
the bed of the truck and Smith asked him
about the bottle then approached the truck
just after O'Bier reportedly hid the bottle
on the floor behind the driver's seat Then
she reportedly removed a small object
from the center console with her hand
closed.
"I could see what appeared to be some-
thing niade of paper," Smith reported. "I
ordered the defendant to show me what
was in her hand. She failed to comply or
respond verbally. She looked at me but
placed her hand on her right hip/front
pocket area. I ordered her again to show
me her hand and she appeared to put/
push something into her pocket that was
very small."
Smith approached the truck's passen-
ger door and instructed O'Bier to exit the
vehicle. He later had her place her hands
on the truck and asked her to face away
and had to tell her three times, but she
continued to refuse.


Smith reportedly grabbed O'Bier's right
arm and handcuffed her.
"Upon inspecting the defendant's pock-
ets, I discovered a plastic straw and a small
plastic bag containing cocaine," Smith
reported. "The defendant was placed under
arrest and transported to the Columbia
County Jail."
Gretl Plessinger, Department of
Corrections spokeswoman, said O'Bier
was hired as a correctional officer Aug.
22, 2008.
"We're in the process of terminating her
employment," Plessinger said. '"We're ter-
minating her because of the seriousness of
the charges against her."
Under Florida Department of
Corrections policy, employees arrested
for certain crimes face dismissal. Such
employees are terminated under the
"Extraordinary Dismal" policy and the
Columbia Correctional Institute warden
has already asked that O'Bier be so termi-
nated, Plessinger said.
"She won't be allowed back in the institu-
tion," Plessinger said, noting the dismissal
could take up to two days.

"I don't feel it's fair to the taxpayers,"
he said.
However, it's not the hospital authority's
place to repair roads, Berry said. The
council did the right thing by taking on the
task, he said.
"It will benefit the entire community, not
just the hospital," he said. "Everybody that
goes to that hospital will benefit."
Taxpayers will be pleased with the money
spent because of the benefit of an improved
route to the hospital, Johnson said. Work
on the project should begin within a matter
of days by Anderson Columbia.
He estimated the project would take
about 120 says to complete.
Repairing the street will also aid in
improving the area for redevelopment,
Berry said.
"We're just thankful they approved it,
and we appreciate it," he said.

OPINION


Congress:

Tanned,

rested

and ready

Congress returns to
Washington this
week after a thor-
oughly undeserved
one-month vacation
to find their work right where
they left it far from finished.
The lawmakers say they had
to break to talk to their con-
stituents and gauge the mood
of the country. They didn't have
to leave Washington to find that
out. The voters are depressed
and anxious thanks in part
to congressional stunts like a
totally unnecessary fight over
raising the national debt ceiling
that resulted in a first-ever dent
to the national credit rating.
Congress fouls up one of its
mandatory duties every year so
it's almost not worth mention-
ing, but every year since 1995
the lawmakers have failed to
finish the 12 appropriations
bill that fund the government
for the next year by the Oct.
1 deadline. The Senate has
passed only one. Sometimes
the lawmakers never get
around to it, resorting instead
to a sloppy and expensive pro-
cess of passing temporary mea-
sures. Often the whole mess
gets left to the next Congress
to take care of.
The number one talking
point will be jobs. The empha-
sis here is on "talking." The
Republicans refuse to spend
any money on hiring. Their
centerpiece is a bill to prevent
the National Labor Relations
Board from restricting when
employers can locate new
plants. But this bill, if it passes,
does not create jobs. It only
relocates them.
On Thursday, President
Barack Obama.is to lay out his
newest jobs agenda; it should
be big, bold and visionary. He
could put all 14 million unem-
ployed Americans back to work
tomorrow and congressional
Republicans would still say no
rather than hand him a victory
in advance of the 2012 election.
! Meanwhile, Belgium has now
gone more than 450 days with-
oflt a parliamentary govern-
ment and seems to be getting
along quite nicely. Congress
take note.

Give heroes of


Air America their due


ir America's story
is one of courage,
honor and loyalty
under circumstanc-
es most people can-
not imagine. It also is a story of
disappointment and betrayal by
the government Air America's
employees risked their lives to
serve.
From 1950 to 1976, the year
the United States officially
left Vietnam, Air America was
a federal corporation owned
and operated by the Central
Intelligence Agency. It sup-
ported U.S. missions during
the Cold War. Often under
enemy fire and using outdated
equipment, the organization
flew cargo to countries such
as Cambodia, Korea, Laos and
Vietnam. While operating bases
in these countries, it carried
out covert and humanitarian
missions in Thailand, Taiwan,
Japan, Burma and Chinia.
Its most iconic image was
captured in dramatic footage
from Saigon on April 29, 1975,
showing an Air America Huey
helicopter lifting CIA opera-
tives, military personnel and
their families from an apart-
ment building.
Fewer than 500 Air America
employees, including pilots
and crewmen, are still living.
Records show that 246 pilots
and crewmembers were killed
in action, most of them as a
result of enemy fire in the
covert war in Laos. Some pilots
are still missing in action.
The CIA conducted Air
America operations in secret.
To this day, the CIA and other
intelligence agencies have
not officially recognized Air
America. Off the record, how-
ever, the intelligence communi-
ty has nothing but praise for Air
America, and in its own history
the CIA lauds Air America's fly-
ing prowess.
But because they have not
received official recognition


F- -
Bill Maxwell
moxwell@sptomnescomrn
(translate that to mean "legal"
recognition), Air America
employees have never received
the federal retirement benefits
they deserve. Their toughest
enemies, ironically, have been
their own government's bureau-
cracy and the courts.
For about a decade, a hand-
ful of Washington lawmakers
have campaigned on behalf of
Air America. Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid has led the
charge. In 2009, Reid, a Nevada
Democrat, along with Rep.
Shelley Berkley, also a Nevada
Democrat, introduced the Air
America Veterans Act that
called for authorizing a study
to determine their eligibility for
benefits. Congress asked the
director of National Intelligence
to prepare a report on the
issue.
Gary Bisson, former Air
America assistant legal counsel,
wrote in an e-mail message that
the report was subcontracted,
at a cost of about $350,000, to
Booz Allen Hamilton, which
sent it to the CIA for further
vetting.
Based on the report's find-
ings, the director of National.
Intelligence, quite predictably,
determined that "granting such
benefits would undermine
the national security utility of
proprietaries (CIA jargon for
an arm's-length company that
gives the agency deniability),
create a costly precedent for
granting such benefits to other
proprietary employees, and
would not withstand legal or
public scrutiny."


This decision let the gov-
ernment maintain its position
that Air America was not a
government company and
not part of the Civil Service.
Bisson and others disagree.
He wrote in an e-mail message
that overwhelming evidence
shows that the company was
"created, controlled and funded
by the U.S. government/CIA."
Bisson wrote that during years
of the CIA's predecessor, the
Office of Strategic Services,
"Corporations, even though
established for cover purposes,
were recognized as bona fide
government agencies." He
pointed out that employees
of other CIA corporations
such as Radio Free Asia, the
Asia Foundation and Radio
Free Europe, were given Civil
Service status for the time they
served and granted appropriate
federal benefits. Air America
employees deserve the same or
more.
While the government will
continue to use the advice of
for-hire companies such as
Booz Allen Hamilton to justify
denying benefits to Air America
employees, I submit that,-the
time has come for Congress,
the president and the intel-
ligence community to muster
the moral courage to write new
legal language that will cor-
rect a terrible injustice, that
will make an exception for Air
America.
If we can accept presiden-
tial pardons for people who
have committed crimes, some
treasonous, against our govern-
ment, why can't we find the
goodwill, the wisdom and the
means to rewrite,language that
will give surviving employees,
now in their 70s and 80s, Civil
Service status and federal
retirement benefits?

Will Obama see the light on jobs?


hlien President
Barack Obama
speaks to the
nation Thursday
about his jobs
plan, will he acknowledge what's
gone wrong, or pile on more of
the same failed policy solutions?
Since he was sworn in, U.S.
unemployment has increased
from 7.6 percent to more than
9 percent, a level that has per-
sisted since April and represents
14 million Americans out of
work. That's despite his White
House Council of Economic
Advisers creatively calculating
that the touted $800-billion-plus
"stimulus" spend-fest suppos-
edly added or saved almost 2.4
million jobs incidentally, at a
cost to taxpayers so far of about
$278,000 per job.


The most recent report
showed no net increase in jobs
in August. Since his reelection
campaign is all but under way,
and Mr. Obama's disapproval
rating has hit a new high at 55
percent and his job approval rat-
ing has sunk to a new low at 38
percent, the pressure mounts
for him to not merely proclaim
solutions, but to deliver results.
Mr. Obama has an opportu-
nity Thursday to do something
constructive. Unfortunately, he .
is more likely, at best, to merely
apply bandages to nation's
wounds, or even make things
worse.
It is likely Mr. Obama will
advocate more government
spending, although he is likely
to avoid the word "stimulus"
lest it bring to mind his previ-


ous massive, failed effort He
probably also will call for higher
taxes on the usual suspects,
wealthier Americans, to "pay
for" another round of "green
jobs" or ineffectual job training
programs and even possibly for
more unemployment insurance
to pay people not to work.
Will Mr. Obama accept that
government does not create
jobs by dangling weak incen-
tives like tax credits that pay a
tiny fraction of the full cost of
putting a worker on the payroll?
Will he concede government
discourages hiring by erecting
mountains of regulatory bar-
riers, by imposing additional
costs in new taxes and by other
measures.

aside, a panicking Obama
administration will be less
collaborative than ever in the
days ahead.

ANOTHER
VIEW


Beware

Obama's

executive

fiat

t's official: President
Obama is presiding
over the worst era of
unemployment in U.S.
history since this nation
was embroiled in World War II.
On Friday, it was announced
zero net jobs were created
nationwide in the whole month
of August. Labor Secretary
Hilda Solis stammered, "I do
believe that we're going in the
right direction, but we need
cooperation and it begins with
members of the House and the
Senate agreeing to do some-
thing now." Going in the right
direction? It's a perfect admis-
sion of the cluelessness of this
White House that the head of
the Labor Department thinks
zero new jobs and a permanent
unemployment rate above 9
percent mean the country is
headed the right way.
The second half of the sec-
retary's statement is important
too and delivers an important
warning. Ms. Solis passed the
buck for America's doldrums
and blamed our dire fiscal
situation on congressional
inaction. Congress must "do
something now," she insisted.
Of course, legislative consen-
sus is unlikely because the
Senate is controlled by liberal
Democrats who are pushing
more deficit spending, while
the House is run by conserva-
tive Republicans dedicated to
cutting spending and taxes
to jump-start private-sector
growth. This logjam on Capitol
Hill tempts the executive
branch to take supra-constitu-
tional action. In other words,
since the Senate and House of
Representatives can't get their
act together and agree on any-
thing, the president will have
to step in and take extraordi-
nary action himself. This spin
will be used as pretext for Mr.
Obama to overreach his power
to issue executive orders that
will accomplish only one thing:
Waste more taxpayer money
that will do more long-term
damage to the economy.
In White House talk-
ing points leaked to The
Washington Times by an
executive-branch employee,
administration officials are
told what to say to the press
and the public about Mr.
Obama's Sept. 8 speech to a
Joint Session of Congress.
The document is devoid of
specifics, which will be pro-
claimed frotn the podium on
Thursday, but it does say that
ideas announced to "provide
economic security for the mid-
dle class ... will be both legis-
lative and executive actions."
The key words are the last
two: executive actions. This is
a tacit acknowledgment that
the president is planning to
take unilateral action to force
through what he cannot get a
divided Congress to do.
Mr. Obama has a profound
resistance to dthe Constitution's
separation of powers, whereby
the legislature is the lawmak-
ing body and the executive
branch implements the laws
passed on the other side of
Pennsylvania Ave. He's over-
stepped his bounds on numer-
ous issues already, ignoring
the law to further his liberal
agenda through federal agen-
cies. Oppressive environmen-
tal regulations against busi-
nesses and property owners
jump to mind.
"We need to lock arms,
reach across the aisle and start
acting as one community," the
kumbaya White House march-
ing orders say. Propaganda

NYPD eyed 250-plus mosques, student groups


By ADAM GOLDMAN and
MATT APUZZO
Associated Press

NEW YORK The New
York Police Department col-
lected intelligence on more
than 250 mosques and Muslim
student groups in and around
New York, often using under-
cover officers and informants


to canvass the Islamic popula-
tion of America's largest city,
according to officials and con-
fidential, internal documents
obtained by The Associated
Press.
The documents, many
marked "secret," highlight
how the past decade's hunt for
terrorists also put huge num-
bers of innocent people under


scrutiny as they went about
their daily lives in mosques,
businesses and social groups.
An Associated Press inves-
tigation last month revealed
that a secret squad known as
the Demographics Unit sent
teams of undercover officers
to help key tabs on the area's
Muslim communities. The
recent documents are the first


to quantify that effort
Since the 2001 attacks,
the police department has
built one of the nation's most
aggressive domestic intelli-
gence agencies, one that oper-
ates far outside the city limits
and maintains a list of "ances-
tries of interest" that it uses to
focus its clandestine efforts.
That effort has benefited from


federal money and an unusu-
ally close relationship with the
CIA, one that at times blurred
the lines between domestic
and foreign intelligence-gath-
ering.
After identifying more than
250 area mosques, police offi-
cials determined the "ethnic
orientation, leadership and
group affiliations," according


to the 2006 police documents.
Police also used informants,
and teams of plainclothes
officers, known as rakers, to
identify mosques requiring
further scrutiny, according
to an official involved in that
effort, who spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity because he
was not authorized to discuss.

HAMPTON, Ga. With
his car sliding all over the
track, Jeff Gordon held off
teammate Jimmie Johnson

Jaguars release
QB in a'pure
football decision.'
By MARK LONG
Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE -
David Garrard lost his
starting job the same way
he got it: Just days before
the season opener and in
stunning fashion.
The Jacksonville Jaguars
released Garrard on
Tuesday, making a "pure
football decision" that


will save the franchise -$9
million in 2011.
Whether it saves coach
Jack Del Rio's job remains
to be seen. Team owner
Wayne Weaver has said
Jacksonville needs to
make the playoffs for Del
Rio to stick around for a
10th season.
Del Rio made it clear
late last season that he had
grown tired of Garrard's
inconsistent ways, but the
coach remained steadfast
through training camp and

the preseason that Garrard
was his starter. That
changed Tuesday, when the
Jaguars parted ways with
Garrard after nine up-and-


down seasons.
"He just couldn't get it
going," said Del Rio, who
added that the team didn't
try to trade Garrard.


Del Rio turned the
starting job over to Luke
McCown, who outplayed
Garrard and rookie Blaine
Gabbert in the preseason.

6-pointer in Osceola


By MONTY STEPHENS
Special to the Reporter

Shoot!
Not with a
gun though. It
is too early for
hunting season. Instead
use a trail camera.
Deer season is coming
up fast and trail cameras
are a great way to get
pictures of the deer you
will be hunting this fall.
It's as simple as placing
a camera overlooking a
game trail in the area you
would like to hunt
The camera will snap
pictures of anything that
ventures by.
Prices on these cameras
have fallen dramatically, so
they are very affordable.
Many of the major
manufacturers have
models costing less than
$75. The low price helps
take away the sting when
one of them quits working
after the warranty expires,
or gets damaged, or,
heaven forbids, gets
heisted.
Besides getting photos,
trail cameras can help


hunters determine
"patterns" of deer they
will be hunting, since it
records the date and time
the photo was taken. Some
even print air temperature
and moon phases.
Instead of a flash at
night that might startle
deer, many cameras use
LEDs (light emitting
diodes). The LEDs send
out a red glow that works
very well in illuminating
deer for night photos.
Nearly all cameras let the
user chose between still
photos or short videos.
Some cameras require
the use of a SD card to
store the pictures, while
others have built-in
internal storage. The SD
cards can hold hundreds
of photos. Buy an extra
SD card and the camera
can be left in the field
and just have its SD card
exchanged.
The photos on the SD
card are best viewed by a
computer, SD card viewer,
or at a photo shop. High
end models have a small
built-in LCD screen for
viewing pictures in the
field but because of the


small size, this is only
good for cursory reviews.
Between last year and
this year my
cameras snapped dozens
of pictures. Among those
pictures were only three
bucks. Two were clearly
too small to be legal and
one was a six-pointer that
showed up multiple
days in the morning
daylight hours, usually
with several does.
After studying the
photos, I concluded he
would be a better deer
next year and vowed to
let him walk if he came
by during gun season -
which he never did. But,
thanks to the trail camera,
I at least have his picture.

DEAR ABBY


Son's pregnant girlfriend

has dad expecting trouble


DEAR ABBY: My son's
girlfriend is pregnant. I
think there is a chance it
may not be his, although
she claims it is. "Ben"
met "Christy," and a
little over a week later she
announced she was preg-
nant She's now 34 weeks
into the pregnancy.
I have asked him repeat-
edly if he is sure the baby
is his and he says yes, but
the math doesn't seem
right to me. I have sug-
gested Ben seek a pater-
nity test, but I don't think
he's going to take my
advice.
I am not the only per-
son who is questioning
this, and I feel terrible for
having the doubt He has
asked Christy to marry
him and she accepted. I
couldn't believe it. They
were going to marry that
same month, but when
Ben mentioned a prenup-
tial agreement to protect
the real estate and other
property he owns (and that
I'm financially involved
in), Christy blew up! She
just about kicked Ben to
the curb. Now, thankfully,
the wedding is postponed.
Christy's overboard reac-
tion has added to my sus-
picion. What do you think,
Abby? SUSPICIOUS
DAD IN RHODE ISLAND
DEAR DAD: I
agree that before your son
marries Christy, every-
thing should be out in the
open. Regardless of whose


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearobby.com
child she is carrying, your
son may be in love with
her and it may not mat-
ter to him. If the child is
indeed his, a paternity test
would lay any doubts to
rest.
That said, I spoke with
my gynecologist and
asked how long after
conception it would take
for a pregnancy to show
up in a test, and was told
the answer is one week
after a woman's period is
late. For Ben not to insist
on having a prenuptial
agreement under these
circumstances would be
a mistake, and I hope he
will reconsider.

DEAR ABBY: My moth-
er died -suddenly three
years ago and my sister
overdosed a year later. I
didn't know she was so
depressed;
Her son, "Jordan," is the
joy of my life. Every time I
watch him, all I can think
of is "Why?" Why did my
sister choose to leave us
alone? I don't know how
to move on when I look
at Jordan and think of my
sister. Please help. LEFT


WITH THE MEMORIES
DEAR LEFT: Please
accept my deepest sym-
pathy for the multiple
losses you have suffered.
Although you feel left
alone by your sister's sui-
cide, the truth is you are
NOT alone. In the United
States, millions of people's
lives have been touched by
suicide whether it was
that of a colleague, friend
or a family member. That
you are reminded of your
sister when you see your
nephew is a normal reac-
tion.
When your sister over-
dosed, she may have beer
acting on impulse and
trying to end what she
perceived to be intoler-
able psychic pain. Please
contact the American
Foundation for Suicide
Prevention. Among the
many programs it offers
is a listing of local support
groups for survivors. The
website is www.afsp.org;
the phone number is (888)
333-2377.
Author Eric Marcus
has written an excellent
book on this subject, "Why
Suicide?" published by
Harper One. He, like you,
is a survivor of suicide,
and you may find the
answers you're looking for
by reading it

Angeles, CA 90069.


HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-April
19): Too much on your
plate or dealing with too
many people at home or
at work will lead to con-
fusion, limitations and
emotional upset. Take a
moment to work on cre-
ative endeavors that ease
your stress and lend per-
spective. **
TAURUS (April
20(-May 20): Don't stop
short of your goals. Put
pressure on anyone who
slows you down. You can
make gains if you are
precise and detailed and if
you finish what you start.
Help will be offered if
needed. *****
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): You need time to think
before making a decision.
Conflicting information
will confuse you. Do your
homework to discover
what route to take. Inflict
more discipline on the
people for whom you are
responsible. It's important
to get what you want

CANCER (June 21-July
22): Do what you can to
make your home inviting.
Collaborating with people
who are working toward
the same goal will help you
cut corners. An interest-
ing change will enhance
your lifestyle and the way
you approach alternatives.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

Strive for greater stabil-
ity, and you will avoid big
thinkers who will cost you
big bucks. Set your own
criteria and stick to a bud-
get you can afford. Don't
be afraid to offer less and
wait and see what you get
in return. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept
22): You cannot allow
someone to take advantage
of you when the stakes are
so high. You stand to get
ahead if you network on
your own behalf instead
of for someone else.
Traveling, attending an
industry event or signing
up for a course will all lead
to personal and profession-
al benefits. *****
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct
22): Keep a low profile and
work diligently toward a
goal. Letting others inter-
fere will lead to setbacks
and trouble. Someone
who feels threatened or is
jealous will criticize you
in hopes of derailing your
plans. Stand behind your
ideas. **
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov.
21): You are on the right
track. You can cut a deal
with someone who sees
the value in partnering
with you. Travel will lead
to talks and the possibility
to expand a project you are


promoting. ****
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): You may try
to dodge an incriminating
question regarding your
personal life. In the end, it
is best to offer the truth.
Put whatever isn't work-
ing behind you so you can
move on with your plans
without feeling guilty.

CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): You stand
to make gains through
personal or professional
investments. Real estate
deals, settlements, con-
tracts or even cash from
an unusual source are
possible. Doing something
special to your home for
your family or a lover will
be beneficial. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): You can go about
getting what you want
forcefully or strategically,
but either way there will
be a price to pay. Ask
upfront what is expected
of you. You don't want to
leave any room for last-
minute changes or sur-
prises. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): It's time to bring your
old ideas and partners
together to turn your plans
into a reality. Love is in
sight, and whether it's
with someone new or old,
you must put time aside to
make personal promises.

LAKE CITY REPORTER


Bringing Bellamy Beaver to life


Bellamy
Beaver to
life for The
Ichetucknee
Partnership won't be
possible without support
from the community.
TIP needs $2,500 to
create a life-size version
of the official springs
ambassador.
The total amount of
the project is $10,000.
The project already
has $7,500 from TIP
members including
the Columbia County
Chamber of Commerce,
Rotary Club of Lake City
and Suwannee River
Water Management
District.
Also a grant from
the Florida Wildlife
Foundation is contribut-
ing finds for the project.
"We need a couple
thousand more to finish
him," said John Wheeler,
project coordinator.
Bellamy Beaver
is the mascot for TIP
and is named after the
first federal highway to
cross Florida near the
Ichetucknee, he said.
Ichetucknee is the
native American word
for beaver pond, which
is why the animal was
selected as the mascot.
"If you're floating
down the river you'll see
trees gnawed down by
beavers," Wheeler said.
The character advo-
cates for protecting the
springs, similar to the
way Smokey Bear repre-


sents fire prevention.
"Up until now he
has existed only on
the Internet or print,"
Wheeler said. "We want
to bring him to life."
Protecting the springs
is important for several
reasons.
"We know the springs
is important to us,"
Wheeler said. "Clean
drinking water is impor-
tant to our health."
Also the springs bring
value to the local econo-
my because of the tour-
ism it promotes.
"Thousands visit the
area," he said. "It's impor-
tant to the economy."
TIP selected Street
Characters Inc. to cre-
ate the mascot, Wheeler
said. The company has
created mascots for
the National Football
League, Major League
Baseball and National
Collegiate Athletic
Association.
"It's so expensive.
because we have to do
it right," Wheeler said.
"We have to make sure
it's durable and safe for
the actor who actually
mans it."
Once a life-size ver-
sion of Bellamy Beaver
is available, it will appear
at community events
such as parades and rib-
bon cuttings in Columbia
County, he said.
A translator will be on
hand to share Bellamy's
message of springs pro-
tection, Wheeler said.
Bellamy Beaver stress-


JASON.MATTHEWWALKEF L -'i .:.'A i.
Suzanne Moses, general manager of the Super 8 Motel, poses next to a cutout of Bellamy Beaver. 'I love the idea that
Bellamy Beaver will be made into an actual costume,' Moses said. '1 think it's a great plus for the area. It definitely puts the
focus on the springs and taking care of the environment.' '


es the need to use less
fertilizer and water, use
Florida-friendly plants and
maintain septic tanks.
"It will bring the mes-
sage to life," he said.
TIP thinks its big-
gest gains in people
changing the way they
live is through reaching


the younger generation
with a character such as
Bellamy Beaver, Wheeler
said.
The goal is to have
Bellamy Beaver by
the annual Christmas
Parade. : ---
Donations of any
amount are needed for


the project, he said.
Send donations with
a check payable to
the Columbia County
Chamber of Commerce.
Include Bellamy in the
memo line.
Checks can be mailed
to 162 S. Marion Ave.,
Lake City, FL 32025


or dropped off at the
office.
Contact Wheeler for
more information at
(386) 752-8660 or Joel
Foreman at (386) 752-
8420.
"B-llainy will become
an essential part of TIP,"
he said.
