ment officer, the other a community activist
and businesswoman, are in a Gainesville hos-
pital recuperating from injuries suffered when
their cars collided Tuesday night.
Lake City Police officer David B. Broom,
28, of Lake City, was originally listed in seri-
ous condition, while the other driver, Ruby
Earline Parker, 86, also of Lake City, was
listed as critical.
Both appear to be on the mend, although
official confirmation was available in neither
case.
Soni Fine, Parker's close friend, said she
visited Parker in the hospital Wednesday
morning. She said Parker remains in the
hospital's intensive care unit and still must
undergo a number of procedures.

"She knew who I was and that was amaz-
ing," Fine said, noting she calls Parker 'Earle.'
"She was talking and I was extraordinarily
happy. I laughed with her and joked with her. I
was so relieved to find her in as good of condi-
tion as she was."
Parker is a former executive. director of
United Way Suwannee Valley and is active
in the local branch of the Service Corps of
Retired Executives, which
she founded.
Lloyd Adams of Wellborn,

Sports upgrade


options mulled


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Local officials are attempting to
prioritize and address concerns at the
Southside Sports Complex concern-
ing improvements to the facility.
Wednesday morning the Columbia
County Sports Advisory Council held
a meeting at which members dis-
cussed important concerns, as listed
by an internal fact-finding report, and
suigge tionis to deal with the con-
cerns.
During the meeting, which lasted
close almost two hours, board mem-
bers discussed ways to promote the


facility, parking and infrastructure
needs, facility lighting and restroom
space and locations.
There are 706 parking spaces at
the facility, an additional ,121 when
combined with the city parking lot
near the facility. However, during
heavily attended events, the parking
is 'skewed' because attendees often
attempt to park closer to the fields
where their relatives play. Drainage is
also an issue when inclement weath-
er is a factor. Officials say there is
enough parking for local recreational
needs but not for tournament needs.

Diamond, Streep honored by Kennedy Center


WASHINGTON
The good times never
seemed so good for Neil
Diamond, 70.
Known for-his songs
that have become
anthems at ballparks and bars,
Diamond was chosen Wednesday to
receive the Kennedy Center Honors
this year along with some of the
biggest names from Broadway, jazz,
classical music and Hollywood.
Diamond will be honored with
Broadway singer Barbara Cook, cel-
list Yo-Yo Ma, saxophonist Sonny
Rollins and actress Meryl Streep
for their contributions to American
culture through the arts. President
Barack Obama will salute the art-
ists and others will perform in their
honor at a ceremony at the Kennedy
Center on Dec. 4. CBS will broadcast
the show Dec. 27.
Diamond said he was "flying way
above sea level" when heard about
the honor.
"I've watched, and I've seen, and
I've even dreamed that someday that
would happen to me," he said. "But I
never really believed that it would."
Diamond said he used to get dis-
tracted when people sang along with
him to hits like "Sweet Caroline,"
which was written for presidential
daughter Caroline Kennedy who
hosts the show.
"But I realized pretty quickly that
it was a compliment, and I had no
choice in the matter anyway, so I got
with the program and just learned
to love it," said Diamond, who ear-
lier this year was inducted into the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He said
he's planning another U.S. tour next
summer after performing abroad
recently.

Fortune teller
bond set for $1M
WEST PALM BEACH
- The matriarch of a fam-
ily of fortune tellers who
allegedly scammed $40
million from victims was
granted a $1 million bond.
A federal judge on
Wednesday granted bond
to Rose Marks and three
other family members.
Authorities said the Fort
Lauderdale family preyed
on vulnerable victims,
asking them to overturn
large amounts of money,
jewelry and gold coins in
exchange for breaking
curses and healing diseas-
es. Eight family members
have been charged in the
alleged scam.
Rose Mark's sister,
Victoria Eli, is still on the
lam.
The family has pleaded
not guilty.

Court hears slot
machine argument
TALLAHASSEE An
appeal court will decide if
lawmakers can allow slot
machines anywhere in
Florida.
A three-judge panel
of the 1st District Court
of Appeal heard oral
argument in that issue
Wednesday in Tallahassee.
A ruling allowing the
Legislature to permit slots
could open the door to
casino resorts in Florida.
That's what Circuit
Judge James Shelfer
decided last year, also in
Tallahassee, when he dis-
missed part of a lawsuit
challenging slot machines
at Hialeah Park.
Competing horse and
dog tracks filed the suit
and now are appealing.

Ex-husband
held without bail
FORT MYERS -
Authorities said the sus-
pect in the disappearance.


Ten years later
Stevenson Tose-Rigell, 20, was one of the students at Emma
E. Booker Elementary school in Sarasota with President
George W. Bush on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. Tose-
Rigell appeared on stage behind Bush, along with class-
mates, as Bush addressed the nation for the first time after
learning of the attacks on the World Trade Center and
Pentagon buildings from then White House Chief of Staff
Andrew Card.


of a Lee County middle
school teacher will remain
in jail until Alabama offi-
cials pick him up on unre-
lated charges.
Deputies said Daniel
Proctor, 44, on Wednesday
waived his right to be
extradited to Alabama,
where he faces charges
of stealing a weapon and
a vehicle. Lee County offi-
cials believe Proctor killed
his ex-wife, Amy Patterson,
41, who has been missing
since late July.

$1M donated to
Miami high school
MIAMI JPMorgan
Chase is teaming up with
Florida International
University and local offi-
cials to encourage more
kids in Miami's Liberty
City to set their sights on
college.
Currently, only three
percent of Liberty City
residents hold bachelor
degrees, and about a quar-
ter of Miami Northwestern
High School students
never graduate.


On Wednesday, Former
Florida senator and top
JPMorgan executive
Mel Martinez presented
Northwestern with the
$1 million grant. It will be
administered over three
years in a partnership
with FIU and Miami Dade
County Public Schools.

Cost of toll
roads set to rise
MIAMI It's about
to cost more to drive on
some South Florida roads.
Florida Department of
Transportation officials
said they're raising the
tolls on Florida's Turnpike
and the Sawgrass
Expressway by an aver-
age of 75 cents starting in
2012. The money will be
used to finance a turnpike
expansion in Miami-Dade
County and other road
projects.
Officials said the cash
toll will rise from $1 to
$1.25 and from 75 cents to
$1 with the SunPass by
June 30.

CHS logistics program warehouse nears


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. corn

A warehouse facility to
house the Columbia High
School logistics project
will be under construction
in the near future, school
district officials said.
School district offi-
cials and officials from
Columbia High School
attendedWednesday morn-
ing's Columbia County
Economic Development
Department meeting and
gave board members an
update on the logistics
project, which is designed
to prepare local high
school students for work
in the logistics industry.
According to the report,
the project identified as
the distributive/diversi-
fied lab building is under
way with site work, and
the bid to construct the
building has been award-
ed.
Assistant superinten-
dent Lex Carswell said


the building is needed
because the students
can't be driven to and
from a facility each day.
While the original costs
associated with the ware-
house were projected
to be in the $300,000 -
$413,000 range, officials
have noted there's been
a reduction on construc-
tion costs and opted
to go with the low bid
for the project, which
turned out to be in the
$200,000 range. The
building, slated to be
60' x 100', will be on the
Columbia High School
campus near the cafete-
ria. Steel for building
construction is sched-
uled to arrive this week.
School officials also
spoke about a proposal
alter one of the school's
entrances which would
allow semis access to
the building.
Economic Development
Department board mem-
bers also discussed a
survey the department


is conducting to see how
other counties handle
incentives for prospective
businesses.
The local incentives
the board is consider-
ing amending deals with
sales tax credits that
would be offered to busi-
nesses hoping to locate
in the area. The incen-
tive package the county
currently has never been
used. The board reached
a consensus in attempting
to develop new param-
eters using general guid-
ing principles and set up
a subcommittee where
Stephen Douglas, Marc
Vann and Glen Owens
will attempt to write the
documents which offer
incentives for retail
development locally.
In other business, the
board:
Heard an update about
the search for an execu-
tive director and expects
to hear from candidates in
the near future.


OPTIONS: Sports complex upgrades
Continued From Page 1A


Property is for sale in
the area, but officials have
not committed to purchas-
ing property to expand the
parking or activity areas.
Officials also discussed
the need for additional rest-
rooms on site as well as
potential locations for the
restrooms. The current
plan is to utilize port-o-lets
and place them on concrete
slabs.
Officials also want a
website for people com-
ing to attend a tourna-
ment can learn about
the area. Officials plan to
launch a website called
FloridaGatewaySports.
com, which will have links
to other sites and provide
advertising links which
showcase hotel or restau-
rants deals to local busi-
ness who advertise on the
site.


The Columbia County
Tourist Development
Council will put the initial
information on the Web
site, including photographs
and local literature and any
other information promot-
ing the area and local activi-
ties.
Mario Coppock,
Columbia County recre-
ation director, will serve as
the contact person, to pro-
vide a list of events sched-
uled at the facility. He has
been tasked with making
sure the appropriate paper-
work has been completed
for tournaments slated at
the facility and he will then
contact the landscapes and
parks department to make
sure there is event staff
available for the tourna-
ment.

from the east in his LCPD cruiser.
The front of Parker's vehicle struck the
front of Broom's 2008 Ford Crown Victoria
nearly head-on. Both cars spun after the
impact with Parker's vehicle coming to
rest in the right lane of U.S. Highway 90.
As a result of the impact, Broom's cruiser
traveled onto the south shoulder of U.S.
Highway 90 where its left side struck the


traffic signal support pole and dislodged a
fire hydrant.
Broom and Parker were taken to area
hospitals before they were flown by heli-
copter to Shands UF for treatment.
Neither driver was wearing a seatbelt,
reports show.
Charges in connection with the crash
are pending, said FHP.

Iran's


rulers


afraid of


the water

S-omewhere behind
those bushy beards
and black turbans, .
Iran's ruling clerics
must know that their
predominantly youthful nation
regards them as a group consti-
pated, joyless old men. Paranoid,
too, but increasingly with much
to be paranoid about
Recently, flash mobs of
young Iranians have been gath-
ering spontaneously for water
fights in the country's urban
parks, shooting each other
with squirt guns and spraying
each other with water bottles.
It sounds remarkably like an
American college campus lead-
ing up to final exams.
Part of the old-timers' antipa-
thy to the water fights aside
from the natural resentment
of puritans toward anybody
having a good time is cul-
tural: "Hard-liners see the
water fights as unseemly and
immoral, breaking taboos
against men and women simply
mixing, much less dousing
each other with water and play-
ing in the streets," observed
the Associated Press. Iran, it
appears, is still not ready for
wet T-shirt contests.
But other senior officials in
Iran's repressive government
see darker forces at work for-
eigners, counterrevolutionaries,
Iranian exiles in the U.S. and,
perhaps most menacing of all,
the outlawed Facebook.
The police have been crack-
ing down on the water fights
and arresting some of the par-
ticipants, although even some
clerics thinks this makes the
regime look ridiculous.
But ever since the giant pro-
tests over Iran's crooked 2009
election, the regime has been
skittish and nervous about
large gatherings, especially
since the massive protests of
the Arab Spring began ousting
unpopular dictatorships.
It would be altogether fitting
if the corrupt killjoys currently
ruling Iran were ousted by an
event called the Super Soaker
Revolution.

Visited by an asteroid?


Space is a big place,
but now and then a
comet or asteroid pays
us a visit. Should we
worry? No, you can
relax. No one in recorded his-
tory has ever been a victim. An
article by Yeomans, Benner,
and Giorgini reports that an
asteroid named 2005 YU55 will
pass between the earth and the
moon on November 8, 2011.
It's only 400 meters across, and
poses no threat. It's too small to
see with the naked eye. NASA
informs us that these "close
encounters" occur now and
then, but objects large enough
to be significant are found and
tracked years before they visit.
With early discovery and track-
ing of one of these objects,
a minor nudge and a minor
correction in its orbit should
change its path enough to elimi-
nate the risk.
What can we do? Here are
some things you can do.
Think positive. See problems
as opportunities to develop your
skills and knowledge. You can
fix this. The more things you
try, and the more you stretch
your limits, the more you can
do. No one has ever found the
absolute limit of what people are
capable of.
Look ahead. Like NASA
and their Near Eafth Asteroid

monitoring program, keep alert
to upcoming problems. Rather
than worry about such events,
we can deal with problems life
gives us by stepping in and
using our skills and knowledge
to respond early, before they're
problems. Watch for some of
these looming signs of trouble
in your own future: problems
with money, health, personal
relationships, and your per-
sonal responsibilities. Don't
be the Titanic: Keep a lookout
on deck to watch for icebergs.
Unnecessary worrying can
cause stress, which can weaken
us and damage the immune
system and its ability to fight off
mental and physical disorders.
Try a little nudge now. Like
a threatening asteroid, with
enough advance warning we
can change our paths enough to
avoid disappointment. The best
way to deal with any disease is


to use early detection and treat-
ment. A little nudge early is
better than too little too late. "A
stitch in time saves 9." See that
wet spot on your ceiling? Fix
the leak before you need a new
roof. A problem usually won't
go away by itself. Ignoring it or
putting it off can make it worse.
Take care of business. It's
so easy to prepare early for that
hurricane, power outage, or that
holiday plan messed up by a
rainy day. Do your homework
now. Sweep out your rain gutter
before you need a new roof. Tie
your shoestring before you trip
and break your ankle!
Celebrate your successes.
Recognize small daily successes
in your life, and reward your-
self for them. Feel good about
your power to improve your
life. Draw a happy face on your
calendar, or take yourself to din-
ner. Your small daily successes
can build up your strengths,
confidence, and self-esteem.
The more you succeed, the
more you're ready for the next
challenge. Reach out, stretch,
and be the best you can be.

Obama just keeps destroying jobs


President Barack
Obama, who has
been working like
the devil to wipe
out jobs in America,
finally said he was going to give
us less government to help
more, although he soon enough
was pledging more government
to help less. Union members
cheered him while one of their
bosses went a step further.
"President Obama,
this is your army," Teamsters
President Jimmy Hoffa said in
introducing the commander
in chief at a Detroit rally on
Labor Day. After asserting the
Tea Party was waging a war
on workers, he yelled, "We
are ready to march. Let's take
those sons of guns out and give
America back to an America
where we belong."
He was not quoted as saying
"guns," of course, and neither,
in their more sober moments,
have unions been saying how
much they love all the presi-
dent has been doing for them.
Unions representing miners,
electrical workers, mechanists
and more were reported in one
recent compilation as agonizing
over various EPA regulations
and other interventions tiat will
cost them not just a few jobs,
but tens of thousands. Have
mercy, sir, they have pleaded.
And suddenly, after news
stories that unbelievable mis-
ery had just become worse,
there Obama was, giving us at
long last a more angelic, less
leftist, reasonable persona,
announcing he would stop
his EPA's smog assault sure
to cost the economy billions
in employment opportunities.
Environmentalists wailed that


Jay Ambrose

unconscionable pain and suf-
fering would result. That's less
likely than a drought-caused
flood. The ozone in the smog is
too itsy bitty to hurt, and con-
vincing evidence proving other-
wise is zero.
But in Detroit, Obama trans-
mogrified into Mr. Hyde again,
talking about spending more
to create more jobs with more
infrastructure projects. You
remember all the good that did
us the last time increasing
debt and its threat while shovels
weren't ready? Does he really'
want to repeat policies diminish-
ing America?
That's exactly what those
policies have been doing, and if
you think differently consider
these few items taken from a
longer list of Obama's failures
by Peter Wehner of the Ethics
and Public Policy Center: losing
2.2 million jobs; a 9.1 percent
unemployment rate up from 7.7
percent; three years of trillion
dollar deficits in a country that
never had one before; a two-
and-a-half year $4 trillion debt
increase that is greater than
what George W. Bush was able
to give us in eight years and a
record increase in poverty. This
is what he meant by hope and
change?
None of this came easily. It
first off required disbelieving


the libertarian-preached truth
that virtually all that borrowed
money was less likely to help
the economy than if left to free
market decisions. It required
juvenile anti-corporate cursing,
negligent and worse energy
policies, tax threats and growl-
ing at states trying to tame
public union extravagance. It
required the future-threaten-
ing encumbrance of already
malfunctioning Obamacare, a
National Labor Relations Board
mistaking the United States for
the expired Soviet Union and a
vast, near despotic array of EPA
and other regulations that were
death to both existing jobs and
entrepreneurial ambition to no
discernible avail.
This president, who is forever
playing blame games while tak-
ing reckless, un-presidential pot
shots at the opposition, has had
opportunities for compromise,
maybe the best being a plan
from leaders of his own debt
commission on both revenue-
raising tax reforms and serious
spending limits.
Give it up and get real, Mr.
President. You are setting the
middle class back like it has
only once has been set back
before, and demolishing the
working class. Get back on the
deregulation track, quit the
spending, start compromising,
forget bold new adventures in
Europeanizing us and offer up
some competence and leader-
ship.

Al-Qaida


saboteur


nabbed


P


akistan took
the unusual
step Monday of
announcing pub-
licly that it had


captured, in conjunction with
the CIA, a top al-Qaida leader
and two others described as
senior operatives.
The arrests are important,
not only because they take
three bad guys off the board,
but because they demonstrate
that the levels of trust and
cooperation between the two
nations' security services have
returned to something close
to normal, after a time when it
appeared they might break off
altogether.
That relationship is vital
because the Afghan-Pakistan
border harbors Islamic
extremists implacably opposed
to both Washington and
Islamabad.
The Pakistanis were humili-
ated and infuriated when,
without receiving advance
notice of the raid, U.S. SEALs
killed Osama bin Laden, who
embarrassingly was found
living in a Pakistani garrison
town his compound, in fact,
was only a few blocks from
one of the country's premier
military academies.
That came amid Pakistani
complaints, which conceivably
could have been made for pub-
lic consumption to placate local
critics of the U.S. role, that
the CIA was striking too often
and too carelessly with armed
drones.
But in a statement follow-
ing the arrests, the Pakistani
military praised "the strong,
historic intelligence relation-
ship" between the two services
and the U.S. reciprocated with
a White House spokesman call-
ing it "an example of the long-
standing partnership between
the United States and Pakistan
in fighting terrorism."
Unless al-Qaida has deep
reserves we don't know
about, the world's former
leading terrorist organization
is a leaderless, struggling
shadow of itself, reduced to a
mere bit player in the strug-
gle to remake the Muslim
world of North Africa and the
Mideast.
Bin Laden was killed in
May, and last month his des-
ignated No. 2, Atiya Abd al-
Rahman, was killed in a mis-
sile strike. Pakistan's prize
catch, Younis al-Mauritani,
is said to have been charged
by bin Laden with mounting
strikes against U.S. economic
interests, in the U.S. and
abroad, such as oil and gas
pipelines, power-generating
dams and oil tankers.
Intelligence recovered at
bin Laden's hideout showed
that the terrorist leader was
desperate to launch a high-
profile strike against the
United States somewhere
around the 9/11 anniversary
to prove that his organization
was still relevant.
Given that U.S. and
Pakistani interests in the
region don't always overlap,
there are likely to be other fall-
ings-out, hopefully only tempo-
rarily, but this latest welcome
cooperation comes as the
demise of the original al-Qaida
is in sight.
Unhappily, there are certain
to be other fanatics eager to
take its place.

2 Texans trade barbs in GOP presidential race


By PHILIP ELLIOTTI
Associated Press

WASHINGTON A
Texas-sized rivalry is brew-
ing in the Republican presi-
dential contest.
Texas Rep. Ron Paul is
calling Texas Gov. Rick
Perry "Al Gore's Texas
cheerleader" for once
working to help elect the
Democrat. Perry's team, in
turn, is branding Paul a
turncoat for once leaving
the GOP
The back-and-forth
between two Texans, who
never have been particu-
larly close, could spill over
into Wednesday's debate
at the Ronald Reagan
Presidential Library in Simi
Valley, Calif., a memorial to


the conservative who coun-
seled fellow Republicans
not to speak ill about one
another.
So far, neither Paul
nor Perry is heeding that
advice.
Over the past few weeks,
both have seen their stand-
ing in the GOP field rise.
Paul, a libertarian-lean-
ing Republican who has a
strong legion of die-hard
supporters and a big bank
account, came within 152
votes of winning an impor-
tant test vote in Iowa on the
same day that Perry, who
leads in several national
and state polls, entered the
race to great fanfare among
the party's conservative
base.
Since then, Paul has been


poking at Perry, seeking
to tarnish the governor's
image.
Last week, Paul likened
Perry to a "candidate of
the week" and predicted
Perry's poll numbers would
fall quickly once voters got
to know him better. He
told The Associated Press,
'Texas has had a lot of
changes in these last eight
years, not exactly positive
either."
This week, Paul rolled
out a TV ad suggesting
that Perry wants to unrav-
el the Reagan legacy. The
ad highlighted Paul's own
endorsement of Reagan's
unsuccessful bid for the
GOP nomination in 1976
and Perry's work on then-
Sen. Al Gore's unsuccess-


ful presidential bid in 1988.
The ad said: "Rick Perry
helped lead Al Gore's cam-
paign to undo the Reagan
revolution, fighting to
elect Al Gore president of
the United States. Now,
America must decide who
to trust: Al Gore's Texas
cheerleader or the one who
stood with Reagan."
Perry was a Democrat
serving in the state leg-
islature at the time. He
switched parties in 1989
and successfully ran for
state agriculture commis-
sioner as a Republican.
Paul's ad drew a rebuke
from Perry's campaign,
which said in a statement,
"Like President Reagan,
Gov. Perry has cut taxes
and freed employers from


government regulations
that kill jobs."
Perry aides also dug up
and distributed Paul's 1987
letter of resignation from
the Republican Party.
In it, Paul wrote, "I want
to totally disassociate
myself from the policies
that have given us unprec-
edented deficits, massive
monetary inflation, indis-
criminate military spend-
ing, an irrational and
unconstitutional foreign
policy, zooming foreign
aid, the exaltation of inter-
national banking, and the
attack on our personal lib-
erties and privacy."
Paul ran for president as
a Libertarian in 1988; two
decades later he ran as a
Republican.


"Paul thought President
Reagan was so bad, he left
the GOP," Perry spokes-
man Mark Miner said, call-
ing Paul's letter a broadside
attack on every element of
Reagan's record and phi-
losophy.
Paul advisers promised
not to shy away from high-
lighting parts of Perry's
record that they say are
inconsistent with his cam-
paign pitch.
"We don't think the
fact that you used to be a
Democrat is the big prob-
lem here," Paul campaign
chairman Jesse Benton
said in an open letter to
Perry on Wednesday.
"The real problem is that,
too often, you still act like
one."

911 tapes from



shooting reveal



a frantic scene


By SANDRA CHEREB
Associated Press

CARSON CITY, Nev.
- Dozens of 911 calls
made from in and around
a Nevada IHOP where a
deadly shooting rampage
took place detail a fran-
tic scene, as witnesses
described the gunman and
dispatchers tried to deter-
mine if more than one per-
son was involved.

"There's a shooting in the
IHOP! Get there right now!"
yelled caller Ralph Swagler,

door, as shots rang out in
the background.
"Now he's coming back
out. He's shooting people
in the parking lot! He's
shooting at us now!"
A female caller instruct-
ed the dispatcher to bring
"several" ambulances and
said: "There's a guy' shoot-
ing everyone!"
Tuesday's attack by lone
gunman Eduardo Sencion,
aka Eduardo Perez

and seven injured. Sencion
also killed himself.

WOa


\ . J We love you and miss you
'- CGranny, GrandPa, Uncle Daniel


- and a time of grieving
- continued.
"This is unquestionably
the most devastating attack
in Carson City's history,"
Carson City Sheriff Kenny
Furlong said. "Yesterday
our town was shocked to
the core."
The dead included three
Nevada National Guard
members the same num-
ber of Nevada Guardsmen
who have died while serv-
ing in Iraq and Afghanistan.
They were Sgt. 1st Class
Christian Riege, 38, of
Carson City; Major Heath
Kelly, 35, of Reno; and
Sgt. 1st Class Miranda
McElhiney, 31, of Reno.
Also killed was Florence
Donovan-Gunderson,
67, of South Lake Tahoe.
Donovan-Gunderson was
married to a retired U.S.
Marine Corp member.
At a news conference
Wednesday, Brig. Gen.
William R. Burks described
the slain National Guard
members as dedicated and
active in their fields.
He said Kelly was a
decorated officer and avid
student of military history
who was known for his dry
sense of humor.
Kelly was married with
two kids, and served in Iraq
from 2004 to 2005. He was
deployed while on active
duty with the Army, not as
a member of the Nevada
National Guard.
Kelly was a field artillery
officer in the Army for seven
years before joining the
Guard about six years ago,
according to the Nevada
National Guard's quarterly
magazine, Battle Born. The
magazine said Kelly led
about 140 soldiers at the
Nevada National Guard's
joint force headquarters
in Carson City after being
promoted to commander in


August 2009.
Burks said Riege was a fit-
ness buff and father of three
who had also been in the
Navy. Riege's military occu-
pation was armor crewman,
and he served in Afghanistan
from 2009 to 2010.
McElhiney was an admin-
istrative sergeant who had
been in the Guard for 13
years. She served soldiers
in the medical, dental and
human resources fields.
McElhiney also had a
side business making cakes
and cupcakes and would
always bring goodies when
people got a promotion,
officials said.
Burks said Guardsmen
overseas are grieving the ser-
vice members' loss, and were
being told to maintain-focus.
The rampage started
just before 9 a.m. Tuesday,
when Sencion stepped onto
the pancake house parking
lot from his blue minivan
with a yellow "Support Our
Troops" sticker on it.
He immediately shot a
woman near a motorcycle
before charging into the
chain restaurant Witnesses
said he had unloaded a
magazine when he was still
less than 12 feet from his
vehicle.
Inside the IHOP, Sencion
marched toward a table of
uniformed National Guard
members before shoot-
ing each one, and fatally
wounding three of them,
authorities said.
On the 911 tapes, callers
describe seeing a man wear-
ing a red shirt and black
pants. Many are crying as
dispatchers frantically try
to gather information on
where the shooter went.
"In the IHOP! In the
IHOP!" one caller yells.
"Now he's coining back out
with a gun shooting people
in the parking lot!"

story so it would be per-
fect when they read it to
the president on Sept. 11,
2001. They remember
how Bush's face suddenly
clouded as his chief of staff,
Andrew Card, bent down
and whispered to him that
the U.S. had been attacked.
They remember how Bush
pressed on with the read-
ing as best he could before
sharing the devastating
news with the nation.
"It was like a blank
tare. Like he knew some-
thing was going on but
he didn't want to make it
Oto bad for us to notice
by looking different," said
fnard Rivers, now a 17-
year-old football player at
Sarasota High.
WVhat the students can't
say for sure is how that
moment changed them.
They were just second-
graders. Their memories
were only beginning.
"I think we all matured
maybe a little bit," said
Chantal Guerrero, now
a 17-year-old senior at
Sarasota Military Academy.
"... But since we were only
7, I'm not sure what kind
of impact it had, because
we didn't know how things
were before."
Sept. 11, 2001, was a
steamy Tuesday in south-
west Florida. The children
were sitting in two neat
rows in room 301 of Emma
E. Booker Elementary
School. Bush planned to
sit in the classroom with


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Kay Daniels looks around her former classroom at Emma E. Booker Elementary school where she sat on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, with President
George W. Bush as she waits to recall her experience from that day to a reporter on Aug. 24 in Sarasota. Bush was listening to Daniels' second-grade stu-
dents read aloud when then White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card whispered into Bush's ear that a second plane had hit the World Trade Center in New


York City.

them before moving to the
media center to talk about a
national reading initiative.
Booker Elementary,
in a low-income area of
Sarasota, was chosen for
the Bush visit because
Principal Gwen Tose'-
Rigell had turned it into
a high-performing school.
As presidential trips go,
it was routine, mundane
even. Tose'-Rigell, who
died of cancer in 2007, told


The Associated Press in
2002 that Bush knew when
he arrived at the school
that some kind of plane had
hit one of the World Trade
Center towers in New York.
But the news was sketchy,
and the decision was made
to proceed with the pro-
gram at Booker.
The moment when Card
whispered to the president
about the terrorist attack
came when the children


were reaching under their
desks for a book called
Reading Mastery II. On
Page 153 was "The Pet
Goat," the story the chil-
dren read aloud as the
president followed along
with his own copy.
As they began the story,
some of the children sensed
something was different
about the president.
"One kid described his
face as (like) he had to use


the bathroom," Guerrero
said. "That's how we saw
it in second grade. He just
looked like he got the worst
news in the world."
Teacher Kay Daniels
was sitting next to Bush
and knew something was
amiss when Card came out
of the adjoining classroom
and approached the presi-
dent Everything about the
day was so choreographed,
and that wasn't supposed to


happen.
"I had 16 little ones sit-
ting in front of me, the
media in the back of the
classroom, and I had to
keep going," said Daniels,
now a reading teacher at
a Sarasota middle school.
"Emotionally, (Bush) left
us, but he came back. He
did come back into the les-
son, and he picked up the
book and for a moment he
stayed with us."

Hundreds want


out of Chinese


drywall deal


By CURT ANDERSON
AP Legal Affairs Writer

MIAMI Hundreds of
Floridians potentially want
to opt out of a proposed $55
million federal settlement
over faulty Chinese dry-
wall in hopes of pursuing
individual lawsuits in state
courts, the attorney for two
families said Wednesday.
The lawyer, David
Durkee, said 'a key hear-
ing Friday in Broward
County could be a major
step in determining wheth-
er people dissatisfied with
the class-action settlement
can take their cases before
juries in Florida courts.
"They don't want any
part of that settlement,"
Durkee said. "They have
chosen state court. They
want to proceed individu-
ally and they want their day
in court."
The settlement, first
announced in June, involves
Banner Supply Co., a major
distributor of Chinese
drywall, and thousands
of affected homeowners,
builders, installers and oth-
ers in Florida. U.S. District
Judge Eldon Fallon in New
Orleans where lawsuits
in several states were con-
solidated for pretrial pur-
poses gave the deal pre-
liminary approval in July.
Thousands of homes
mainly in the South were
affected by installation of
Chinese drywall that has a
foul odor, can corrode wir-
ing and metal in appliances
and cause health problems.
The Banner settlement
involves mostly Floridians.
Fallon also ordered
a temporary halt to dry-
wall lawsuits filed against
Banner in state court. The
hearing _Friday before

Broward County Circuit
Judge Charles Greene con-
cerns whether cases filed
by the families represented
by Durkee can proceed
despite the federal order
and settlement.
Joseph and Patricia
Pensabene of Davie, one of
the families suing Banner in
state court, said Wednesday
they don't believe the fed-
eral settlement will fairly
compensate them for the
gutting of their home and
health problems suffered
by their two, daughters,
including vomiting and eye
irritation.
"This has been an abso-
lute tragedy for myself and
my family," said Joseph
Pensabene. "We believe
we were 100 percent done
wrong. We want our day in
court and a chance to be
heard."
The total amount to be
divided among class mem-
bers in the Banner settle-
ment has not yet been
revealed, Durkee said.
But he said a key issue
for Florida homeowners
is whether others affected
by the defective drywall
- builders, installers and
others in the remodeling
and construction busi-
nesses could also claim
a chunk of the settlement
cash. Many of them have
also been sued.
"We think it could be just
a few thousand dollars for
these families," Durkee
said. "This is a very small
percentage of their losses."
There are hundreds of
other people across Florida
who have either filed state
lawsuits or wish to against
Banner, depending on the
outcome of these initial
cases in Broward County
and elsewhere.


Adult smoking rate down


By LINDSEY TANNER
AP Medical Writer

, CHICAGO Fewer U.S. adults
are smoking and those who do light
up are smoking fewer cigarettes
each day, but the trend is weaker
than the government had hoped.
According to a Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention report
released Tuesday, 19.3 percent of
adults said they smoked last year,
down from about 21 percent in 2005.
The rate for smoking 30 or more
cigarettes daily dropped to about 8
percent from almost 13 percent dur-
ing the same time period.
The report only compared last year
with 2005 and says the decline means
3 million fewer adults were smoking.
The CDC earlier reported that the
2009 rate was 20.6 percent and rates
fluctuated during the five-year period.
The five-year decline was much
slower than a drop seen over the
previous 40 years, said Dr. Thomas
Frieden, director of the Atlanta-
based agency. He said any decline
is a good step, but also said tobacco
use remains a significant health bur-


den.
"About half of all smokers will
be killed by tobacco if they don't
quit," Frieden said during a news
briefing.
"You don't have to be a heavy
smoker or a long-time smoker to get
a smoking-related disease or have
a heart attack or asthma attack,"
Frieden said. "The sooner you quit
smoking, the sooner your body can
begin to heal."
The 2010 numbers are based
partly on face-to-face interviews
with almost 27,000 Americans aged
18 and older.
Increases in federal and state taxes
on cigarettes and new clean air laws
are among reasons for the drop, said
Dr. Tim McAfee, director of the CDC's
office on smoking and health.
Those positive trends have been
offset by efforts from the tobacco
industry, including offering dis-
counts to consumers, McAfee said.
If the slowed rate of decline con-
tinues, adult smoking rates will
reach 17 percent by 2020, far higher
than the government's goal of no
more than 12 percent, the CDC


report said.
Government efforts to further
reduce smoking rates include pro-
posed graphic cigarette packaging
labels, which are being challenged
in court by the tobacco industry.
Frieden said evidence from states
with strong anti-smoking programs
show that tobacco control can be
effective. Rates are far below the
national average in states with the
strongest tobacco control programs,
he noted. States with the lowest
rates are Utah, at 9 percent, and
California, 12 percent, the CDC
report found.
In a statement, American Heart
Association CEO Nancy Brown said
the report shows some success-
es but also 'continued disparities.
Smoking was most common among
low-income, less educated adults
and among American Indians and
Alaska natives.
Matthew Meyers, president of the
Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, a
Washington-based advocacy group,
said in a statement that it's too soon
to declare victory when nearly one
in five adults still smokes.

Time for flu shots; some may get tiny needle


Vaccinations
may prove less
scary for some.

By LAURAN NEERGAARD
AP Medical Writer
WASHINGTON It's flu
vaccine time again and
some lucky shot-seekers
will find that the needle has
shrunk.
The first flu shot that
works with a less-scary skin
prick instead of an inch-
long needle is hitting the
market this fall. Sorry kids,
this option so far is just for
adults, and it's so brand-
new that it will take some
searching to find a dose.
But there are plenty of
the other varieties stan-
dard shots, a special high-
dose shot for seniors and
the needle-free squirt-in-the-
nose option to go around.
At least 166 million doses of
flu vaccine are expected to
be produced this year.
The big question is
whether people will get it.
Usually each year's flu vac-
cine varies from the pre-,
vious versions as different
influenza strains emerge.
This year, the vaccine's a
duplicate because the three
flu strains that sickened
people last winter still are
circulating.
Scientific studies aren't
clear about how much a per-
son's immunity wanes over
a year, although it varies
by age and overall health.
But federal health officials
and the American Academy
of Pediatrics weighed the
evidence and say don't
skip this year's vaccination
- it's the only way to be
sure your immune system
remains revved enough for
the best protection.
"You're not going to be
able to count on that vaccine
protecting you throughout
a second season," says
Dr. Lisa Grohskopf of the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention.
A yearly vaccination
now is recommended for
virtually everyone, except
babies younger than 6
months and people with
severe allergies to the eggs
used to make it. Last year,
49 percent of children and
41 percent of adults were
vaccinated.
Say you never catch the
flu? You could be a carrier,
unknowingly spreading
the misery when you feel
little more than a sniffle,
says Dr. William Schaffner
of Vanderbilt University,
president of the National
Foundation for Infectious
Diseases.
"You should be vacci-
nated each and every year
to ensure both you're pro-
tected and you're giving the
maximum protection to peo-
ple around you," he says.
Don't put getting vacci-
nated off too long, says Dr.
Scott Gorenstein of Great
Neck, N.Y., an emergency
physician whose own son
Nate, then 4, nearly died
of flu during the 2009 pan-
demic. The boy already had
been exposed by the time
vaccine finally was available
that fall. Now, Gorenstein
says the whole family gets
inoculated in early fall -
even though Nate has devel-
oped a vaccine allergy and
as a precaution checks into
the hospital for his dose.
"We got lucky," says
Gorenstein, who now advis-
es a group called Families
Fighting Flu. "You just don't
want to be a statistic that is
preventable."

Adults make up

a record share

of U.S. poor


By HOPE YEN
Associated Press
WASHINGTON -
Working-age America is the
new face of poverty.
Counting adults 18-64
who were laid off in the
recent recession as well as
single twenty-somethings
still looking for jobs, the
new working-age poor rep-
resent nearly 3 out of 5
poor people a switch
from the early 1970s when
children made up the main
impoverished group.
While much of the
shift in poverty is due to
demographic changes
- Americans are having
fewer children than before
- the now-weakened econ-
omy and limited govern-
ment safety net for workers
are heightening the effect.
Currently, the ranks of
the working-age poor are
at the highest level since
the 1960s when the war
on poverty was launched.
When new census figures
for 2010 are released next
week, analysts expect a
continued increase in the
overall poverty rate due
to persistently high unem-
ployment last year.
If that holds true, it will
mark the .fourth year in a
row of increases in the U.S.
poverty rate, which now
stands at 14.3 percent, or
43.6 million people.
"There is a lot of dis-
cussion about what the
aging of the baby boom
should mean for spend-
ing on Social Security and
Medicare. But there is not
much discussion about
how the wages of workers,
especially those with no
more than a high school
degree, are not rising,"
said Sheldon Danziger,

Census numbers show

about 60 percent had at
least one person who was

"The reality is there are
going to be a lot of work-
ing poor for the foresee-
able future," Danziger said,
citing high unemployment
and congressional resis-
tance to raising the mini-
mum wage.

Indian sweep


FortWhite
volleyball beats

By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter. corn
Fort White High didn't
leave much question
to which team was bet-
ter on Wednesday as the
Lady Indians defeated
Suwannee High in three
sets.
The Lady Indians won
each of the first-two games
without much of a contest
from the Lady Bulldogs
25-9 and 25-16. The decid-
ing set was much closer as
Fort White came away with
a 26-24 win.
"I think we played well
tonight," Fort White head
coach Doug Wohlstein said.
"It was a little close there at


the end, but we came away
with it."
This is more indicative of
the team Wohlstein expects
to see in Fort White.
"We played a little lower
than we should have,
but our goal is to keep
improving as the sea-
son goes along," he said.
"We were a little better
tonight."
Lync6 Stalnaker led the
Lady Indians with nine kills,
nine digs and two aces.
Ali Wrench led in assists
with 12 in the contest. She
also had four digs and three
aces.
Carson Robinson had five
digs and two aces. Emily
Roach had five aces. Caitlin
Congi had three digs and
three kills.
Fort White travels
to Williston at 6 p.m.
tonight.

Carter can't get enough golf
in his life and that's why


the former Tiger jumped at
the opportunity to take over
as head coach of the Lady
Tigers' golf team.
"I'm excited to team up
with my father (Chet) to
coach this team," Carter
said. "He's been coaching
me my entire life, and we
can build this team better


than ever together."
Carter is especially excit-
ed to coach Darian Ste-
Marie, who averaged 40 as
a junior and now leads the
Lady Tigers.
"I'm excited about the
potential behind Darian,"
he said.
Ste-Marie has high expec-


stations as well.
"I expect to make it past
districts, regionals and
hopefully to state," she
said.
Joining Ste-Marie are
Ashley Mixon, Shelby
Camp, Gillian Norris,
Brooke Russell and Brandy
Spranger.


"I want to get the girls
as many college scholar-
ships as I can," Carter said.
"We have some good girls
besides Darian with Ashley
and Shelby shooting in the
mid 40s."
Columbia begins the sea-
son hosting Santa Fe High

Texas A&M move to SEC


held up by legal threat


By JOHN ZENOR
Associated Press

MONTGOMERY, Ala.
- The Southeastern
Conference cleared the
way for Texas A&M to
join its ranks with a
wrinkle.
Baylor is considering
suing if the Aggies leave
the Big 12.
If and when the legal
issues are resolved, the
SEC will make the Aggies
the league's 13th team to
complete a courtship Texas
A&M initiated in July. The
potential union announced
Wednesday could lead to a
massive realignment of the
college football landscape,
a significant push toward
16-team super conferences.
The SEC was set to
become the first BCS con-
ference with more than 12
members. League officials
said they received "unani-
mous written assurance"
from the Big 12 on Sept.
2 that the SEC was free to
accept Texas A&M. The 12
presidents and chancellors
all voted in favor of the
addition late Tuesday.
Then the deal hit a snag.
"We were notified
(Tuesday) afternoon that
at least one Big 12 institu-
tion had withdrawn its pre-
vious consent and was con-

sidering legal action," said
Florida President Bernie
Machen, chairman of the
SEC leaders. "The SEC
has stated that to consider
an institution for member-
ship, there must be no con-
tractual hindrances to its
departure."
Big 12 -Commissioner
Dan Beebe said he
"regrets" the confusion.
Beebe sent SEC
Commissioner Mike Slive
an email Tuesday night -
obtained by AP saying
that Baylor had indicated
"that its governing board
has not waived the univer-
sity's rights" to take legal
action against the move.
He said the SEC must get
waivers from each institu-
tion. Beebe had indicated
in a Sept. 2 letter that the
Big 12 and its members
would "waive any and all
legal actions" if Texas
A&M left as long as it
happened by Thursday.
SEC spokesman Charles
Bloom declined further
comment on Wednesday.
Texas A&M President
R. Bowen Loftin said in a
statement the Aggies "are
disappointed in the threats
made by one of the Big
12 member institutions to
coerce Texas A&M into
staying in Big 12.

"has derailed SEC expan-
sion for the moment,"
said LSU Chancellor Mike
Martin
"Clearly there is instabil-
ity and a bit of chaos within
the Big 12, which we hope
will be resolved for the
sake of Texas A&M and,
indeed, for all of college
sports," Martin said.
Mississippi Chancellor
Dr. Dan Jones said the SEC
is not willing to get into a
domestic dispute between
Texas A&M and the Big
12, or wage a court'battle
for the Aggies.
"It's in the hands of
Texas A&M and the Big
12," Jones said. "We've
been clear that we'd be
happy to receive them if
they're unfettered of obli-
gations. We gathered to
have a vote. We had a letter
that clearly gave us legal
clearance. It was frustrat-
ing to be gathered and
then have things pulled out
from under Texas A&M
like that We're disappoint-
ed for Texas A&M."
And there's a lot of
money at stake.
Texas A&M has made
it clear it wants a higher
profile and more revenue
and that the Aggies are
unhappy with the creation
of the Longhorn Network
at rival Texas.

DEAR ABBY


Issues of identity are serious

matters for adoptees, families


DEAR ABBY: May I
weigh in on the letter from
"Noah's Real Dad in New
York" (June 27), whose
adult adopted son wants
to reclaim his original
last name? I am an adult
adoptee who searched for
and found my birth fam-
ily. I also joined a support
group that was formed to
support the adoption triad.
Research has shown that
male adoptees struggle
with their identity more
than females do. After all,
in our patriarchal society
it is the male surname
that most often does not
get changed in marriage.
Women are accustomed to
the fact that they will most
likely change their name.
This family needs to
do some reading on the
subject, There are many
resources out there. A
family counselor who
isn't well-educated about
adoption issues will not be
helpful.
Unless you walk in an
adoptee's shoes you can-
not judge their actions.
After all, the adoption deci-
sion is made without the
consent of the child. We
also resent being treated
like children after we are
adults. Noah is a 34-year-
old adult able to make his
own choices and decisions.
Noah is fortunate that
he knows his birth father
and didn't have to search
a bureaucratic maze to
obtain any information.


Abigail Van Buren
www.deorabby.com
Laws have been passed
in several, not all, states
allowing adoptees to get
important information
about their birth families
that is necessary for taking
care of ourselves and our
own children. DEBBIE
IN FLORIDA
DEAR DEBBIE: Your
letter reflects the strong
sentiments of many adopt-
ees and their families who
wrote to me expressing
their disappointment in my
reply to Noah's adoptive
father. Here are some of
their responses:
DEAR ABBY: I am an
adoptive parent in an open
adoption with our chil-
dren's birth families, and I
vehemently disagree with
what you wrote.
My children have two
mothers and two fathers.
My husband and I are the
parents who are raising
them, but that slip of paper
signed by a judge does not
erase their family of origin.
It shouldn't They have an
adoptive family and a bio-
logical one and should be
able to have a relationship
with both.
My children also have


two names. The names
they were given at birth
and the names my hus-
band and I gave them
when we adopted them as
infants. They will always
know about these two sets
of names. When they are
Solder, if they wish to be
called by their birth name,
we will have to respect
that. It does not mean they
love us less or that we are
not their parents. AN
ADOPTIVE MOTHER IN
ILLINOIS
DEAR ABBY: I with you
100 percent! How horrible,
disrespectful and mean-
spirited of that 34-year-old
son.
Doesn't Noah realize
his biological father was
an adult who made up his
mind to give up his rights
to his son, including the
rights to his last name? If
Noah doesn't respect his
adoptive father for giving
him his last name, and if
Noah is set on changing
his surname, it would be
more respectful to take his
mother's maiden name as
his surname. I hope Noah
reconsiders the issue he's
creating, and at 34 he
makes a wiser adult deci-
sion than his biological
parent did. PHYLLIS IN

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Review all infor-
mation before moving
forward. Good fortune can.
be yours, but only if you
put in the time and effort
instead of relying on oth-
ers. Emotional matters
must be dealt with quickly,
but you mustn't make an
impulsive decision. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Make time to network
with people who can help
you build a following in
your chosen industry.
Getting ahead will be all
about how you position
yourself. Romance is in the
stars. ***
