By GORDON JACKSON
gjackson@lakecityreporter.com
Longtime community
leader, Mrs. Genevieve
Summers Buie Nelson,
died Saturday after a brief
illness. She was 94.
Mrs. Nelson was a life-
long Lake City resident
who was a past president of
the Woman's Club of Lake
City, an active congregation
member at the First United
Methodist Church and a
member of the board of
directors at Columbia Bank
for more than 30 years.
When Mrs. Nelson
retired from the bank's
board of directors last sum-
mer, Columbia Bank ran a
display ad in the Lake City
Reporter thanking her for
her service.
"She -had a keen knowl-
, edge about how things
would turn out," said Robert
Louis Green, former presi-
dent of Columbia Bank. "If
someone wanted to borrow
too much money, she would
put her foot down. She was
a very smart woman."

Meeting was moved
to accommodate

By GORDON JACKSON
giackson@lakecityreporter.com
A different, larger venue and
new meeting time has been set
for Columbia, Hamilton and
Suwannee. county officials to dis-
cuss ways to 'fight a permit that
allows the Jacksonville Electric
Authority to draw up to 155 million
gallons of water a day from the
Floridan Aquifer.
The rescheduled meeting will
be held 6 p.m. on Nov. 29 at the
Columbia County School Board


Administrative Complex audito-
rium, 372 West Duval Street in.
Lake City.
The meeting was originally
planned to be held on Oct 25 at a
restored train depot in Live Oak,
but it was rescheduled in Lake city
to accommodate the large audi-
ence expected to attend. The train
depot only has the capacity to hold
about 60 people. ,
Elected officials from the three
counties are expected to discuss
possible legal action to block the
permit approved by the St. Johns
River Water Management District
to allow JEA to draw water from
the aquifer. *
"We're going to talk about a
lot of things," Columbia County.


Manager Dale Williams said. 'The
issue will be explained and people
will learn why they should be con-
cerned. The more we know, the
more productive we can be."
Local elected officials said
the only way rural counties with
small populations can challenge
the St. Johns Water Management
District's decision to approve the
permit is by joining forces.
The concern is the water draw
down will, adversely impact local
springs, creeks, tributaries and
rivers that are already experienc-
ing near record-low levels. The
big draw for tourism in the region
is the many springs and rivers
popular among divers, canoeists
and boaters.


Studies suggest the low water
table levels are directly caused by
drawing water from the aquifer,
public officials said.
The I Columbia County
Commission at Thursday's meet-
ing approved budgeting up to
$5,000 for' an independent legal
assessment of the issue and a
opinion of what can be done, if
anything, to resolve the dispute.
The Opinion should be com-
plete before the Nov. 29 pieeting,
county officials said.
"If we do a legal assessment
in advance, we'll know where we
stand legally," Williams said. "We
will review to see if the county has
a legal recourse. Legal action may
not be possible or practical."


Lifeguard Ambulance Services seeks accreditation


By GORDON JACKSON
gjackson@lakecityreporter.comrn
Lifeguard Ambulance Service
announced plans Monday to seek
a6creditation from the Commission on
Accreditation of Ambulance Services.,
Of the nearly 300 ambulance servic-
es operating in Florida, only eight are
accredited by the commission, said Jason
Kimbrell, director of regional operations
for Lifeguard.
Lifeguard began providing ambulance
service in Columbia County on June 28.
Kimbrell said everyone in the company
from paramedics to billing clerks and
department -heads will have additional
training to help earn accreditation, which
will take anywhere from six months to a
year.
'We feel like now is the best time," he
said.'"This is a huge announcement for
us."


It will cost $10,000 to complete the
application process and 5,000 man hours
to train staff. Cost is the major reason
more ambulance services in the state
don't seek accreditation, Kimbrell said.
"It will impact the process from dispatch
through billing," he said. "Every element
of the EMS system will be reviewed. We
want to make sure our service to the
community is of the highest quality."
"Meetings with supporting agencies
such as 911 dispatchers, fire and police
will be held to improve communications.
"It will raise the bar for everyone,"
Kimbrell said. '"The accreditation process
wants to assure we are one team working
toward the same goal."
Extra staff has been added to ensure
the same level of service while employ-
ees take the additional training to earn
accreditation, he said.

checksheets and manuals were submitted to the Commission
on Accreditation of Ambulance Services.

Jackson doctor, Murray, found guilty


LOS ANGELES
Sjury reached a verdict
SMonday in the invol-
untary manslaughter
case against Michael
Jackson's doctor, delib-
erating for less than nine hours after
the six-week trial that included the
pop star's own recorded voice, but
no testimony from the physician
accused otcausing his death.
Court officials said the verdict
would be read at 1 p.m. PST.
"I'm shaking uncontrollably!"
Michael Jackson's sister LaToya
commented via Twitter on the pend-
ing verdict.
Jackson family members arrived at
the courthouse aftei court officials
said a verdict had been reached.
Outside the courthouse, support-
ers and fans of Michael Jackson
seemed to get word that the jury
had reached a verdict. They started
cheering and started chanting,
"Guilty! Guilty!"
Prosecutors depicted Dr. Conrad
Murray as a reckless physician who
abandoned Jackson while he was
under the effects of the powerful
anesthetic propofol on June 25, 2009.
Attorneys for the Houston-based
cardiologist countered that Jackson
was addicted to the drug and self-
administered the fatal dose when
Murray left his bedroom.
Murray agreed to become
Jackson's personal physician as the
singer prepared for a series of come-
back concerts in 2009.
Murray did not testify during the
trial but previously acknowledged to
police that he gave Jackson piopofol
and other sedatives on the morning
the singer died.

Project's progress


encourages NextGen


By KYLE HIGHTOWER
Associated Press
DAYTONA BEACH -
In a race with Europe
and Asia to create the next
major advancement in
air traffic navigation, the
federal government has
already made a multi-bil-
lion dollar investment in
the new satellite-based
technology it believes will
revolutionize the industry.
A move from radar to
a satellite-driven air traf-
fic control system is still
several years from adop-
tion. But both public and
private entities involved in
the ongoing effort to make
it reality told members of
a House field committee
Monday that they think
the days of massive cost
overruns and delays for
the NextGen project are
over.
Witnesses, including the
administratorofthe Federal
Aviation Administration
and an official from the
watchdog Government
Accountability Office, testi-
fied that after some recent
setbacks the project should
begin to accelerate thanks
to a-new testing facility in
Florida. Members of the

FAA administrator Randy
Babbitt said.
"It's going to allow us to
test a lot of these new con-
cepts and explore them,
proving the benefits it
presents," he said.
Nearby Embry-Riddle
Aeronautical University,
one of the research part-
ners for NextGen, man-
ages the Florida testing
facility. They are designed
to leverage private sector,
academic and NextGen
partner resources. Other
facilities are located in
Atlantic City, N.J., and
Dallas.
Rep. John Mica,
R-Fla chairs the
House Committee on
Transportation and
Infrastructure and said
that the opening of anoth-
er test site for NextGen
was an important step for-
a project he said that when


completed "will make the
skies safer, more efficient
and less polluted."
The $2.1 billion software
program is the main tool
air .traffic controllers will
use to identify and track
aircraft, 'except when
planes are immediately
approaching and departing
airports. It was supposed
to have been completed by
the end of last year, but the,
FAA now doesn't expect
to be finished, until 20.14,
at a cost overrun of $330
million.
Mica said Monday that
a new FAA authorization
bill in the House includes
updated deadlines to
advance NextGen's prog-
ress and that he wants
to have it on President's
Barack Obama's desk
no later than the end of
January.
The completed project is
likely going to cost another
$15 to $20 billion, he said.
BabbittnotedthatObama
has requested another bil-
lion for NextGen in the
proposed American Jobs
Act.
Dillingham said the
GAO has confidence in
where the project is going,
but did recommend that it
identify clear priorities for
implementation as it seeks
more funding.

was disappointed when
Mrs., Nelson retired ear-,
lier this year because they
respected her candor and
sound advice.
"I think we all figured
she deserved her retire-
ment but we hated to see
her go," he said. "I'm sure
it was not an easy decision
to make."
-Businessman Lester
Scaff, interim bank presi-
dent and chairman of the
board of directors, said
Mrs. Nelson was not afraid
to challenge anyone when
an issue was discussed.
"She would challenge
me or anyone, else," he
said.
Her interest in the bank
was due, in part, because
Mrs. Nelson's father,
Samuel D. Summers,
served as Columbia Bank
president in its early days.
"She loved the bank in
a way that was different
from the rest of us," Scaff
said. "It was her. daddy's
bank."
Ann Darby, a longtime
friend and member of the
Woman's Club of Lake


City, said Mrs. Nelson was
an outgoing person who
could persuade people to
tackle difficult tasks.
"I don't know any-
one who said no to her,"
Darby said. "She was the
most amazing person
I've known. She had the
unique ability to get along
with everyone. She was
just a special friend.",
Mrs. Nelson was a 1934
graduate of Columbia
High School and attended
Florida State College for
Women, where she was a
member of Kappa Delta

She is survived by her
daughter, Betty Pat Witt,

"Having a CAAS accredit-

yard brings a higher level
of commitment and service
to the citizens of Columbia
County;" said Capt. James
Brinkley, officer in charge
of the Lifeguard Ambulance
Service in Columbia

tion is for an elite group
of ambulance service pro-
viders that takes hundreds
of man hours to complete
and offers a greater level of

Cain prospered as big


cheese of Godfather's Pizza


Herman Cain has
every right to feel
uncomfortable.
According
to news reports
based on anonymous sources,
the GOP presidential front-run-
iner is suspected of unspecified
acts of sexual harassment while
running the National Restaurant
Association in the 1990s. Cain's
first accuser considered coming ,
forward, but now says she will
stay in the shadows. like a hit-
and-run driver, she wounded Cain
and now speeds off into the night
Too bad this media nor'easter
overwhelmed two recent sto-
ries on a sunnier aspect of
Cain's past his tenure as CEO
of Godfather's Pizza. If these
reports are accurate, Cain is a
diligent, cerebral, tough-but-fair
. executive who turned a failing
and flabby organization into a
fit, effective enterprise. Imagine
if. this tested manager could,
do likewise with America's
paunchy, profligate, pathetic fed-
- eral government.
'First, between 1983 and 1985,
Cain revitalized Burger King's
450-store Philadelphia region.
He moved it from a laggard to a
leader among the company's 12
geographic territories.
"My 'career spans 38 years,
and I've worked for 26 different
managers," said Frank Taylor,
Cain's former regional control-
ler at Burger King. "Herman"
was far and away the best I've
worked for in terms of getting a
team together, sharing a vision'

and accomplishing the goals.
And nothing diverted him."
Pillsbury brass then tapped
Cain to resuscitate Godfather's
Pizza. They gave him one year.
Godfather's "had one foot in the
grave and another on a banana
peel," Cain has said. According
to Neal St Anthony's,
"Imn Herman Cain and this
ain't no April Fool's joke," he
told Godfather's employees
upoij arrival on April 1, 1986.
Cain got very busy, indeed.
He worked long hours, gave
frequent pep talks, canvassed
employees individually for their
ideas and even cooked pizzas
himself both in Godfather's.
test kitchen and among its
roughly 600 retail locations.
Cain energized his head-
quarters staff with after-work
sing-alongs and expected top
supervisors to communicate
on a first-name basis with all
subordinates. Cain tested them
on this skill. He. also pressed
$50 bills into the palms of
employees whose customer
service or pizza-making prow- '
ess impressed him as he visited
Godfather's outlets.


By 1987, Godfather's was on,
a roll. It generated an operating
profit, and gained market share
against Domino's and Pizza Hut
According to the Post, Cain
closed failing stores and laid off
their workers. However, average,
sales and profit margins grew at:
surviving.restaurants. One year
later, Cain arranged for his team
to buy the chain from Pillsbury
for an undisclosed sum. Once
left for dead, Godfather's thrives
even today.
Rather than discuss any of
this, however, the campaign
press corps will.hound Cain ...
about what, if anything, he may
have said or done to one or
more people whose names and
faces remain modern mysteries.
The news media's Rottweiler-
like focus on Cain and these
harassment allegations contrasts
perfectly with the feline laziness
it displayed when the very non-
anionymous Juanita Broaddrick
credibly accused then-President
Bill Clinton not of harassment
but of rape while governor of
Arkansas. Her plausible charges
were trivialized and forgotten.
Poor Herman Cain. If he
were a Democrat, his biggest
headache today would be how
to survive the loud snores of the
liberal press.

A painful primary season


for Republicans


S o far, the theme music
for the race for'the
Republican nomina-
tion probably should
be "Send in the
Clowns." Rarely has the nation,
seen a more disparate group
of candidates, ranging from
doorknob dull to "you've got
to be kidding," with a splash of
hare-brained mixed in for good
measure.
For GOP regulars, this has to
be painful as the primary season
begins with hopes high that the
troubled administration of Barack
Obama is more than a little vul-
nerable. So much so it might
even put to the test the accuracy
of the age-old political adage that
you can't beat somebody with
nobody. Thafs disturbing.
Herman Cain, who inex-
plicably was at the top of
the polls along with former
Massachusetts Gov. Mitt
Romney, seems to have implod-
ed with reports of alleged
sexual harassment in his back-
ground. He mumbled and fum-
bled around with explanations
long enough to lend credence
to rumors that as head of the


Dan K.Thomasson
National Restaurant Association
he may have tried to make an
offer or two he thought couldn't
be refused, resulting in asso-.
ciation payoffs to at least two
women.
This episode raises questions
about why anyone with that in
his background would attempt
to run in the first place. This
fellow isn't going to win the
nomination and his electability
chances always have been zero.
His ridiculous 9-9-9 plan couldn't
stand daylight scrutiny.
Then there is Texas Gov.
Rick Perry whose idea of how
to save our economy is a flat
tax. A dozen versions of this
scheme have been around for
decades but have never really
been taken seriously. Perry
briefly occupied the top spot on


the GOP list of favorites but put
his foot in his mouth so many
times, he ought to go barefoot.
Remember his description
of Social Security as a Ponzi
scheme?
Michele Bachmann, the
Minnesota congresswoman
and multiple foster mom who is
philosophically from the mid-20th
century or earlier, seems to have
run out of everything including
money and ideas. She might have
a better future by joining her
husband in his business of trying
to turn same sex practitioners
into heterosexuals. Her pending
demise in presidential politics
was always highly predictable
even after she won a worthless
straw poll in Iowa. This Tea Party
darling has become just another
pretty face.
With the exception of
Romney, of course, the rest of
this crew must be so hopelessly
deluded or bored with normal
life that they may stick it out
through the first balloting in
January, piling up debt

Create

jobs by

cutting

red tape

finally some positive
economic news: The
official unemploy-
ment rate dropped
one-tenth of a point
to 9 percent It would be cause
for celebration, except the gains
are far too modest to make any
serious dent in the problem of
joblessness in America.
There's even less cause for
optimism after considering the
figures are for October, when
seasonal hiring begins to inch
up in anticipation of the holiday.
season. Sure enough, much of
the increased employment is
found in the service and hospi-
tality industries, according to
the Bureau of Labor Statistics
(BLS). Anecdotal evidence
suggests that in many cases
when people lose jobs and
are re-hired, they accept pay
cuts. This. is consistent with
the broad data trends which
show that wages and salaries
grew only 0.3 percent in the
last three months, using BLS
numbers.
The third-quarter boost in
gross domestic product (GDP)
and the quasi-positive job num-
bers are keeping a double-dip
recession at bay. Its a sign of
how far behind this country has
fallen to rejoice with such low
expectations. As of today, some
13.9 million Americans remain
.in the.ranks of the officially
unemployed, of which 5.9 mil-
lion are considered to be long-
term unemployed. A 2.5 percent
growth rate is riot sufficientto
expand the economy enough to
accommodate these lost millions.
Nor is the American Jobs Act
proposed by President Obama
a solution. A new study by the
Phoenix Center in Washington
crunches some 50 years of data
to conclude the regulatory bur-
den imposed by the federal gov-
ernment has a severely adverse
impact on private-sector GDP
and job creation. Using:sophis-
ticated econometric techniques,
the authors determined that a 5
percent reduction in regulatory
burden a small $2.8 billion
cut could result in an increase
of $75 billion in private-sector
GDP, freeing these companies
to create 1.2 million productive
jobs.
The effect works both ways.
Increases in government regula-
tory burden cost the economy
private-sector jobs. So Mr.
Obama's stimulus scheme, which
is designed to create a lot of.
government jobs, would have a
negative impact on private-sector
employment The authors pro-
vide a concrete example in terms
of the new Consumer Finance
Protection Bureau (CFPB),
which has a budget of at least
$500 million. Their simulation,
assuming the CFPB will employ
2,200 bureaucrats, concluded that
its regulatory toll would destroy
238,000 jobs per year in the pri-
vate economy.
.These results are consistent,
at least in terms of direction,
with a study from the Small
Business Administration last
year which found that economic
regulation imposed a significant
burden on businesses, and a
disproportionately large burden
on small businesses, which are
the engine of job creation in the
economy. If Congress and the
Obama administration are seri-
ous about creating jobs, they
need to start looking at ways
of really reducing the regula-
tory burden and implementing
those cuts in red tape now.
America will never escape the
9 percent unemployment trap if
we only improve by a tenth here
and a tenth there. The president


tried government stimulus and it
was a massive failure. Regulatory
reform will give this economy the
boost it desperately needs.

Judge blocks graphic images on cigarette packages

Associated Press

WASHINGTON A
judge on Monday blocked
a federal requirement that-
would have begun forc-
ing tobacco companies
next year to put graphic
images including dead and
diseased smokers on their.
cigarette packages.
U.S. District Judge


Richard Leon ruled that it's
likely the cigarette makers
will succeed in a lawsuit to
block the new standard. He
stopped the requirement
until after the lawsuit is
resolved, which could take
years.
A similar case brought
by the tobacco companies
against the labels is pend-
ing before the U.S. 6th
Circuit Court of Appeals


in Cincinnati. U.S. District
Judge Joseph McKinley
upheld most of the mar-
keting restrictions in the
law in January 2010. The
appeals court heard argu-
ments in the case in July
but is not expected to rule
for several months.

The shadow of President Barack Obama is seen as he arrives to talk about the American Jobs Act, Monday, in the Rose
Garden of the White House in Washington.


Obama urges Congress to


pass veterans' tax credits


By KEN THOMAS
Associated Press

WASHINGTON -
Embracing veterans,
President Barack Obama on
Monday urged Republicans
in Congress to "put country
before party" and support
new ways of helping for-
mer members of the mili-
tary find jobs in a sluggish
economy.
"Our veterans did their
jobs. It's time for Congress
to do theirs. It's time for
them to put country before
party," Obama said in the
Rose Garden, flanked
by leaders. of veterans'
groups.
Obama pressed lawmak-
ers to approve tax credits
for businesses to hire unem-
ployed veterans or injured
veterans whohave been'
out of work. The Senate. is
expected to consider the
measures this week.


The actions are part
of a larger effort by the
White House to draw con-
trasts with congressional
Republicans who have
opposed Obama'sjobs legis-
lation a year before the 2012
election. Obama has signed
executive orders aimed at
spurring job growth and
helping homeowners and
college students in recent
weeks, saying he does not
want to wait for Congress
to act.
Obama said the adminis-
tration would act unilater-
ally to help veterans match
their skills- to job open-
ings anid access job banks.
He said veterans: could
download a "Veteran Gold
Card" issued by the Labor
Department that.allows for-
mer military members to
get six months of person-
alized case management,
assessment and counseling
at career centers.


The White House esti-
mates the gold card could
help more than 200,000
unemployed veterans who
served after the Sept. 11,
2001, terrorist attacks.
"Just as you fought for us
we are going to keep fight-
ing for you," Obama said..
. Obama pushed anew for
the package of tax cred-
its of up to $5,600 to busi-
nesses that hire a veteran
who has been unemployed
for six months or more.
Another tax credit would
provide $9,600 for compa-
nies that hire an injured vet
who has been unemployed
that long.
*The Senate is expected
to take up the. tax credits
in combination with a mea-
.sure to repeal a proposed
requirement to withhold 3
percent of payments to fed-
eral, state and some local
government contractors
with unpaid taxes.


The tax incentives
-cleared the House last
month and are not expect-
ed to be paid for through
Obama's proposed tax on
millionaires, raising hopes
that could Win Republican
support
Obama noted that when
he proposed the tax incen-
tives for veterans during.
his jobs speech before
Congress, lawmakers
from both sides stood and
applauded. "I expect both
sides of the aisle to stand
up for our veterans and
vote in the affirmative," he.
said,
Soldiers returning home
from Iraq and Afghanistan
face a challenging job mar-
ket. The Labor Department
estimated that 12.1 percent
of veterans who served in
the military since 9/11 were
unemployed in October,
higher than the national
rate of 9 percent.

By CARRIE ANTLFINGER
Associated Press

MILWAUKEE An'
effort started a decade
ago to return the whoop-'
ing crane to its original,
numbers in eastern North
America seemed outland-.
ish. Workers in Wisconsin
would don crane-like
costumes to raise chicks
hatched in captivity, then
teach young cranes an
annual migration route to
Florida using an ultralight
plane to lead the way.
But Operation Migration
is still going strong, and
with 104 birds, including 20
breeding pairs, it's well on
its way to accomplishing its
goal of 125 self-sustaining
birds, including 25 breed-
ing pairs.
"I think the goal is cer-
tainly obtainable, but a
reintroduction of a species
is not something you do in
few years," 'said Joe Duff,
co-founder of Operation
Migration and a former
commercial photographer.
"It takes a long, hard effort
Conservation is far more
efficient and far more inex-
pensive than reintroduc-
tion.".
This year's flock of 10
Wisconsin birds left central
Wisconsin on Oct 9 led as
usual by an ultralight, just
like the first time in 2001.
Late last week, they were
in Illinois.
Duff and Bill Lishman, a
metal sculptor and inven-
tor, started Operation
Migration with Canada
geese and sandhill cranes
to prove their approach
could work. Lishman has
since left the effort but
Duff and five to nine others
now help raise the chicks.
and train them to follow the
ultralight. They wear crane
costumes to keep the.birds
wary of human contact
The effort is led by the


Whooping Crane Eastern
Partnership, a coalition of
public and private groups
that includes the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service,
International Crane
Foundation in Baraboo,
National Fish and Wildlife
Foundation and Wisconsin
Department of Natural
Resources.
Duff and others consider
Operation Migration 'a suc-
cess so far but they have
had their share of setbacks
and heartaches along
the way as they raise and
train- North America's tall-
est bird, which was near
extinction with only about
20 left in 1941.
Challenges they have
faced:
A 2007 storm in
Florida killed 17 birds.
Fundraising for the
$650,000-or-so-a-year oper-
ation is difficult and the
tough economy does not
make it any easier.
The birds were breed-
ing and selecting proper
habitats just fine at the
Necedah Wildlife -Refuge,
but they were abandoning
their eggs before incuba-
tion. Biologists believe one
possible reason was that
black flies were torment-
ing them, so they moved
the chick training this year
to the White River Marsh
State Wildlife Area in
Green Lake and Marquette
counties.
-Only three of the 15
birds born in the wild have,
survived, mostly because
of natural predators. Birds
also have been shot
It takes five years
for the whooping crane
to reach sexual maturity,
which is one reason it
takes so long to grow the
population.
While the challenges
might seem impossible
to overcome, none of the
workers has lost faith.


"What drives us is these
incredible birds, you know
the whooping cranes stands
five feet tall, it's bright
white, if has black wing
tips. It has a call that you
can hear for four miles,"
Duff said.
They've had milestones
as well.
Every year it's a triumph
to finish the 1,300 air-mile
migration safely, with the
help of the people who let
them use their land at 24 or
so stops along the way.
And the same year of the
devastating loss, they also
had their first chick born
in the wild.
The only other migrat-
ing population of whoop-
ing cranes nests in north-
ern Alberta, Canada and
winters on the Texas Gulf
Coast.
A non-migrating flock of
about 25 birds lives year-
round in central Florida
and another five non-migra-
tory, cranes live in south-
ern Louisiana. Altogether,.
about 400 of thebirds live

in the wild.
The International Crane
Foundation has started
building on Operationi
Migration's work and in
2005 started introduc-
ing chicks with part of
the Wisconsin flock. The
cranes are hatched and
raised at the International
Crane Foundation and
then the existing flock
leads them to Florida. So
far 29 of the 53 that were
released through that
effort are still alive.' This
year's eight birds were
released Oct. 21.

Niblack
Elementary
Parent's night out
Many Niblack
Elementary School parents
enjoyed a nice evening
out last Tuesday, October
25th. Several teachers put
their creative thoughts
together and a good idea
came to fruition, with help
and donations from Lake
City businesses. That idea
was to encourage parents
to become more involved
with their child's educa-
tion. Niblack's parents
met in the school cafeteria
at 5:30 p.m., signed in and
registered for a fabulous
door prize. They were
then seated at specially
decorated tables just for
parents and served a
delicious meal, while
they enjoyed an informa-
tive speaker. Mrs. Joyce
Tunsil, a retired educator,
shared her tales of grow-
ing up and her wisdom on
parenting.
Childcare was provided
in the media center and
the children enjoyed a
movie and pizza just for
kids. After dinner, the par-
ents went to their child's


grade level and the teach-
ers talked about what was
going on in the .classroom
and how parents could
make a difference. '
Niblack is planning on
making this a monthly
event. Our next Parent's
Night Out will have an
Italian.rheme and will be
held on November 15th,
from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. So,
-Niblackparents, be on the
lookout for your reserva-
tion forms and.send them
back to school as soon
. as you receive them. We
are hoping to see twice
as many parents after the
word gets around!

UIS curbs work program for

foreign college students


By HOLBROOK MOHR
Associated Press

JACKSON, Miss. The
State Department put a
freeze Monday on expan-
sion of a program that lines
up summer jobs in the U.S.
for foreign college students,
citing persistent complaints
about young people getting
ripped off and exploited.
At isshe is the J-1 visa
program, which began in
1963 as a way to encour-
age cultural understanding
by allowing young adults
from other countries to
spend their summers liv-
ing, working and traveling
in the U.S.
Nearly a year ago, The
Associated Press reported
numerous' abuses, includ-'
* ing cases in which students
were put up in shabby,
crowded apartments and
forced to work grueling
hours at backbreaking,
menial jobs for $1 an hour
or less. Some ended up
going to homeless shelters
for food or a place to sleep.
At least one .woman told


the AP she was beaten and
forced to work,as a stripper
in Detroit in 2005.
The State Department,
which oversees the pro-
gram, said Monday that
is it limiting the number
of future participants to
this year's level, or about
103,000 students, and that
it has temporarily stopped
accepting any new "spon-
sors" companies that
help students arrange for
visas and find jobs and
housing in return for a fee.
Most of the abuses have
been blamed on unregu-
lated, third-party labor bro-
kers who work with the
students, but critics say the
sponsors have done little to
protect them'.
In the meantime, the
State Department said, it is
taking a closer look at the,
program's regulations.
Under the program, for-
eign students are granted
visas for up to four months
and often land jobs athotels,
resorts and, restaurants.
Participation has boomed
from about 20,000 students


in 1996 to a peak of more
than 150,000 in 2008, and
roughly 1 million foreign
students have taken part in
the past decade.
. Last summer, after years
of complaints about abus-
es, the State Department
revised it rules to shift
more responsibility onto its
53 designated sponsors.
"Yet, despite these new
regulations, the number
of program complaints
received this year contin-
ues to remain unacceptably
high and includes, among
other issues, reports of
improper work placements,
fraudulent job offers, job
cancellations upon partici-
pant arrival in the United
States, inappropriate work
hours, and problems
regarding housing and
transportation," the State
Department said Monday
in announcing the freeze in
the Federal Register.
State Department offi-
cials did not immediately
respond to a request for
comment.

13'million Bank of America
customers who had debit
card overdrafts during the
past decade.
Senior U.S. District
Judge James Lawrence
King said the agreement
was fair and reasonable,
even though it drew criti-
cism from some customers
because they would only
receive a fraction of what
they paidin overdraft fees.
The fees were usually $35
per occurrence.
"It's really undisputed
that this is one of the larg-
est settlements ever in a
consumer case," said Aaron
Podhurst, a lead attorney
for the customer class.
The settlement became.
final a week after Charlotte,
N.C.-based Bank of America
backed off a plan to charge
a $5 monthly fee for debit-
card purchases. The out-
cry prompted other major
banks, including JPMorgan
Chase & Co. and Wells
Fargo & Co., to cancel trial
tests of their own debit card
fees.
Bank attorney Laurence
Hutt said 13.2 million Bank
of America customers who
had debit cards between
January 2001 and May
2011 would get some pay-
ment Those who still have
accounts would get an auto-
matic credit and the others
would get a check mailed to
them. No one would have
to take any action or fill out
any paperwork.
Barry Himmelstein, an


attorney for customers who
objected to the deal, said
he calculated that the bank
actually raked-in $4.5 bil-
lion through the overdraft
fees and was repaying less
than 10 percent. He said
the average customer in the
case had $300 in overdraft
fees, making them eligible
for a $27 award less
than one overdraft charge
- from the lawsuit
"It's $4.5 billion that's
gone missing from people's
accounts," Himmelstein
said.
Hutt said only 46 custom-
ers filed formal objections
to the settlement and 350
decided to opt out, mean-
ing they could take sepa-
rate legal action on their
own.
"It's very easy for peo-
ple to say on the sidelines,
'I could do better,'" Hutt
said. "Never is a settlement
at 100 percent of what
somebody thinks they can
receive at trial. It's always a
compromise."
Customers will receive
a minimum of 9 percent of
the fees they paid through
the settlement, Hutt added.
The bank has already paid
the money into an escrow
account
The lawsuit claimed that
Bank of America processed
its debit card transactions
in the order of highest to
lowest dollar amount so it
could maximize the over-
draft fees customers paid.
An overdraft ,occurs when
the account doesn't have
enough money in it to cover
a debit card transaction.
Similar lawsuits have been
filed against more than 30
other banks.
Despite the settlement,
Bank of America insists


there was nothing improp-
er about the processing
sequence. New regula-
tions enacted following
the recent financial crisis
prohibit banks from charg-
ing overdraft fees on debit
cards without first getting
. customer permission.
Many of the objections
concerned the, fees for the
team of class-action attor-
neys, which would amount
to about $123 million.
Lawyers for people opposed
to the settlement said that
amount should be cut down
by at least $50 million, with
the money going back to
the wronged customers.
"'The best use is to pro-
vide compensation to the
class members," said Elliott
Kula, who represents some
of the objectors.
But King sided with the
plaintiffs' attorneys, noting
that they spent thousands
of hours on the case and
achieved "a superb result"
for the customers.
"I don't see anything
about this case that's sim-
ple or garden variety," the
judge said.
Another complaint con-
cerned missing records
for customers from 2001
through 2003, which has
made them impossible to
identify. The settlement
will take about 14 percent
of the total represent-
ing an estimate for the fees
paid by those customers
and put the money into
nonprofit financial literacy
programs.
In addition, the 32 origi-
nal named plaintiffs who
represented the larger
class will get bonuses of up
to $5,000 each, $2,500 each
if both plaintiffs are a mar-
ried couple.

SEC

From Page 1B

we are proud to welcome
you to the family of the
Southeastern Conference,"
SSEC Commissioner Mike
Slive told hundreds of stu-
dents and alumni 'packed
into the campus union. "We-
know that homecoming is
a special tradition here at
Missouri. So let me say to
the entire Missouri nation,
'Welcome to your new
home."'
Missouri will join the
league effective July 1, 2012
by unanimous agreement
of the SEC's presidents
and chancellors, including
lBernie Machen, who joined
Slive at Sunday's announce-
ment in Columbia.
Missouri will be leaving
the Big 12, a conference
it has been a part of since
1907, including its days as
the Big Eight and earlier
incarnations such as the
Big Six.
The school could also
face the end of annual ath-
letic contests with neighbor-
ing Big 12 survivor Kansas,
a rivalry with roots in the
Civil War. The teams first
met on the football field in
1891, the sport's oldest tra-
ditional matchup west of the
Mississippi River. Their col-
lege basketball battles also
began in the 19th century.
The Big 12's uncertain
future drove the move, said
Missouri Chancellor Brady
Deaton.

(


DEAR ABBY: "Pregnant
with Apprehension" (Sept.
9) said she's dreading the
birth of her second baby
because her fiance's moth-
er wants to witness the
birth. Apparently, "PWA"
wants only her mother and
her fiance, "Cliff," in the
delivery room. You said
her wishes should be para-
mount I agree. :
I am a labor and deliv-
ery RN in a major medical
center in California. More
and more people today view
birth as a sporting event.
SIt's worse when the mother-
in-law wants to be there
because "its her right"
"PWA" should let Cliff
know if he can't stand
up to his mom, her labor
nurse will! I will be the
one who informs visitors
that it's hospital policy that,
there be only two people at
the bedside, and there is
NO bending the rule. That
way, the mother-in-law can
hate the nurse, but not her
daughter-in-law or her son.
I'll willingly take the heat
for my patient if it means
a better labor outcome
for her and the family. -
"BECAUSE I SAID SO"
DEAR "BECAUSE":'
Thank you for agreeing-
with me. However, those
who disagreed shared
experiences that are worth
rioting. My newspaper

tude won't help when deal-'
ing with personal matters.

A change in your position

costly, but using technol-
ogy to get ahead will pay
off. **
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

Shake things up. Changing
your routine or visiting:
unfamiliar places will lead
-to greater enthusiasm -
and,4 new perspective,. ,
from which to view the
.., situations you've been fac-
ing. Love is highlighted.
Make sure you spend time
with someone you love.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Greater attention to
detail regarding your per-,
sonal investments and your
home life will be required.

efits. ;****
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-'
Jan. 19): You can offer help

, tunity to make extra cash
is apparent ** %
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Apply for a new'

Someone you collaborate:'
with will bring value to
whatever you decide to do.

able venture. ***** i;
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Inconsistency is the
enemy. Follow through
or you will not be taken

someone you love will be
due to an inability to agree
on what you both want ott
'of life. Don't argue; it will':
only make matters worse,

"PWA," to say she doesn't
want Cliff's parents to
see their grandchild for
two weeks is selfish, and
I don't think she should
demand that her fiance
back her up on this. Her
mother is going to be
there from the moment
of birth. While it's under-
standable she doesn't wait
anyone else; in the delivery
room,'she shouldn't le
surprised that his mother
is hurt, His parents have
a lot. to offer and can be.a
big help to her.
Cliff needs to tell "PWA"
she's being unreasonable.
I wish my son had spoken
up on my behalf. Being
shut out of this blessed
event is hurtful and causes
tension. She has the right

not to enjoy the kind of '

While I would never

it would have been nice
