in 2005 is seeking conditional
release after he was found not

charged "with' attempted

4, 2005 on charges of aggra-

faced three counts of shoot-
ing into an occupied vehicle
and one count of criminal mis-
chief, but 'no action was filed
on those charges, according
to courtrecords. '
The defense 'and state
entered .an agreement 'in
which four doctors filed
reports to Circuit Judge Paul
S. Bryan on April 27, 2008,
finding Vinson insane at the
time of the offense.
Bryan ruled accordingly,

before Judge David Fina, where
Vinson's attorney, Robert Rush,
filed a motion for Vinson's con-
ditional release. Rush declined
comment for this story.
According to court docu-
ments, Fina will rule at a later
date, but briefs from the state
as well as from the defense
attorney must' be submitted
by Nov. 19,, along with orders.
No hearing date has been
scheduled for Fina's decision.
"He (Fina) heard from
Vinson's,son, and Dr. Umesh
Mahtre and I presented testi-
mony from one of the depu-
ties that was at the original
2005 incident," Third Judicial
Circuit State Attorney Robert
"Skip" Jarvis said. "The defen-
dant and the treating profes-
sionals are asking the court
to grant a conditional release
to Mr. Vinson. That condi-
tional-release would include
that he live with his son under
the treatment of local mental
health officials in that area.
The state attorney and the
sheriff's office is opposing
this conditional release. Mr.
Vinson had been under con-
tinuing treatment programs
prior to the 2005 incident
where he shot at the depu-
ties. We're not certain that the
mere factor that he's been in
treatment in that structured
and closely monitored envi-
ronment has kept his con-
dition under control. We're.
concerned that if he's not in
this structured environment
he could decompensate and
his condition revert to its
dangerous form which could
place officers or the public in
danger in the future."

State cleared on handling of investments
By GARY FINEOUT
TALLAHASSEE A state panel con-
cluded Monday that Florida's massive pen-
sion fund did nothing wrong when it hired
a company with ties to the fund's executive
Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff
Atwater asked an advisory panel last month
to look into a decision by the state to invest
$125 million with a firm that specializes .in
shaking up or breaking up companies in
order to make money for investors.
Atwater made the request after a
Republican state senator asked for records
related to the transaction approved by the
"state agency that manages Florida's $100-
billion plus pension fund for public employ-
ees. The State Board of Administration ini-
tially told Sen. Mike Fasano it would cost
nearly $11,000 to turn over the records,
a move that was called "indefensible" by
Attorney General Pam Bondi.
Ash Williams, the executive director
for the board, has insisted that he had
no role in the state's decision to hire the
investment firm. Williams once worked at
a hedge fund whose clients included the
head of the company that set up the firm,
which is now known as Starboard Value.
A panel of financial experts picked by
Gov. Rick Scott, Bondi and Atwater spent
hours on Monday discussing the process
and procedures that led to the hiring of
Starboard. Members of the Investment
Advisory Council said they did not see
anything that showed that the state or.
Williams had done anything wrong.
The council heard from an outside con-
sultant that reviewed the hiring and also
went over a timeline that showed that the
state was first told about the firm in early
October 2008, nearly three weeks before
Williams was hired.
Panel members, however, also defended
the idea that Williams had contacts in the
"We need to realize, this isn't a huge
industry and people are going to know
people," said Charles Newman, a council
member and president of KGI Capital.
"Just because you know someone doesn't
make it a conflict."
Williams called the decision "a reason-
able outcome" and said he has been saying
from the start that he in "no way inserted" .
himself to "alter the normal following of
Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey,
and the legislator who pushed to get more
information on the hiring of Starboard,
was skeptical of the decision.
"I. hope that they made their decision
based on all the information and not just
on information Ash Williams gave them,"
Some of the public documents present-
ed to the council show that Williams was
emailed several times by Thomas Strauss,
president and CEO of the company that
eventually broke off Starboard'as a sepa-
rate company. Williams' former company
had Strauss as a client.
But another email from a senior port-
folio manager with the State Board of
Administration says that Williams "made
it crystal clear" that if the company wasn't
a good investment the state shouldn't go
On Monday, the council also discussed
Fasano's public records request and decid-
ed that there was no need to change the
way the SBA handles public records.
Williams previously justified the nearly
$11,000 cost by maintaining his agency
would have to spend hours to ,make ure
it would not release private business infor-
mation that could lead to a lawsuit against
the pension fund.
But in the wake of the controversy,
Williams has, started out handing over
records to Fasano for free.
Several council -members, however,
weren't happy to learn that on Monday.
They said that some pensioners might be
unhappy if they: found out that .the pension
fund ,absorbed the cost of large, public
Fasano countered that he is making his
request on behalf of 450,000 constituents,
many of whom are likely enrolled in the
state pension fund.
Study finds many patients shun free heart drugs

AP Chief Medical Writer
ORLANDO Give people free pre-
scription drugs and many of them still
won't bother to take their medicine.
Doctors were stunned to see that hap-
pen in a major study involving:heart attack
survivors. The patients were offered well-
established drugs to prevent a recurrence
of heart trouble,' including cholesterol-low-
ering stations and medicines that slow the
heart and help it pump mole effectively.
I "My God, we gave these people the
medicines for free and ohly half took it,"
said one of the study's authors, Dr. Elliott
Antman of Harvard-affiliated Brigham and
Women's Hospital in Boston.
In fact, the researchers couldn't even
give the stuff away: They had trouble just
signing up patients to take part in the
Nevertheless, Aetna, the insurance
company'that footed the bill, thinks this
approach will save money in the long run
and plans to start offering certain hart
drugs free to some patients. In the study,
patients offered medicines at no cost suf-
fered fewer heart problems and saved
$500 on average over roughly a year.
It is no secret many Americans don't'
'follow their doctors' instructions. In one
survey, one-third said they didn't fill a pre-
scription or used less medicine than they
should because of cost. The researchers in
this study wanted to see what would hap-
pen if they took cost out of the equation.
The results were disheartening.
"Adherence in America is miserable,"
lamented Dr. Eric Peterson of'Duke
University, who had no role: in the study.
He noted that only, 10 percent of the
patients were taking all the medicines they
should one year.after a heart attack.

the whole thing is starting to
look like a big, fat turkey.
Itfs difficult to gauge which
is worse: the committee's lack
of progress toward a deal to
cut the federal deficit by at
least $1.2 trillion, or the total
absence of sunshine on the pro-

approval rating has sunk to
single digits, a new low.

with Republicans rejecting

solidly opposed to reforming

One essay in particular stands
out to me. David Gelernter, the
renown Yale computer-sciences

about how he is bringing up his

He says that "... a man's role in
respect to women is to protect,

Amen to that!.
I talked with Bennett (Full
disclosure: He provided a blurb
for my own book, "It Takes a
Parent") He told me he is actu-
ally encouraged that more and,
more people, including some
feminists, are admitting and fac-
ing the problem of the demise
of manliness. That's a start He
would prevent them from sup-
planting the Pentagon cuts with
budget reductions elsewhere

Common-sense appeals by
former budget directors from
past administrations, both
Republican and Democrat,
have failed to budge the com-
mittee toward agreement. And
the co-chairmen of a presi-
dential commission, whose
dictates President Obama has
pretty much ignored; have
gotten nowhere. All have sug-

his last whipping
From Mother '
came when he
was just shy of 16. He had scolded
our innocent, little rat terrier,
Whitey, and Mother didn't like his
tone of voice.
"Go get the razor strap," she
told him. (Our dad, by the way,
called it a razor "strop," and for
years I thought he was mispro-
nouncing the word "strap." But I
didn't have the nerve to correct

The razor strop, a flexible, strip
of leather barbers used to sharp-
en their straight razors, was an
unfortunate gift from an uncle
who ,owned a barber shop.)'
What Mother didn't know,
Kenneth says--and he had for-
gotten at the time-was that he
carried in his back pocket a "tor-
pedo," a foil-wrapped July 4th
firecracker that would explode
when thrown onto pavement

children as young as 6 months
old to discourage bad behavior.
The Pearls describe other imple-

lion previously uninsured Americans. But
Republicans have branded the law uncon-
stitutional since before Obama signed it in
a ceremony in March 2010.
The court's ruling could be its most sig-
flificant and political decision since George
W. Bush's 2000 presidential election vic-
tory. But the justices left themselves an
opening to defer the outcome if they
choose, by requesting arguments on one
lower court's ruling that a decision must
wait until 2015, when one of the law's
many provisions takes effect
Legal experts have offered a range of
opinions about what the high court might
do. Many promifient Supreme Court
lawyers believe the law will be upheld
by a lopsided vote, with Republican and
Democratic appointees ruling in its favor.
But others predict a close outcome, with
Justice Anthony Kennedy, a Republican
appointee who sometimes joins his four
colleagues appointed by Democratic presi-
dents, holding the deciding vote on the
nine-member court -'
The White House has pushed for a
final ruling as soon as possible, and
Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer
said the administration was pleased the
justices agreed to take the case now, with
arguments in March. "It's important that
we put to rest once and for all the issue of
maybe the law will disappear," said Health
and Human Services Secretary Kathleen
Republicans also said they were happy
the high court would hear arguments on
the constitutionality of the provision at the;
heart of the law and three other questions'
about the act The central provision in
question is the requirement that individu-
als buy health insurance starting in 2014
or pay a penalty. ,
"That the Supreme Court is taking this
up, 'I think, is a positive signal that there
are legitimate concerns surrounding the,
constitutional aspects of mandating that
individuals purchase health care insurance
and purchase it according to Washington's
guidelines,"-said House Majority Leader
Eric Cantor of Virginia.
The exceptional:five and a half hours
allotted for argument demonstrates the
significance the justices see in this case.
Normally, they allow only one hour, split
between two sides. In the modern era,
the last time the court increased that time
anywhere near this much was in 2003
for consideration of the McCain-Feingold
campaign finance overhaul. That case con-
sumed four hours of argument
This argument may even spread over
two days, as the justices rarely hear more
than two or three hours a day.
The health care overhaul would achieve
its huge expansion of coverage by requir-
ing individuals to buy health insurance
starting in 2014, by expanding Medicaid
and by applying other provisions, many
yet to take effect
The central question before the court is
whether the government has the power to
force people to buy health insurance. The
White House says Congress used a "quint-
essential" power its constitutional ability
to regulate interstate commerce, including
the health care industry when it passed
But opponents of the law, and the 11th
'US. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta,
say that Congress overstepped its author-
ity when lawmakers passed individual
mandate. A divided Atlanta court panel
ruled that Congress cannot require people
to "enter into contracts with private insur-
ance companies for the purchase of an
expensive product from the time they are
born until the time they die."
The Atlanta court is the only one of
four appellate courts that found the man-
date unconstitutional. The federal appealss
court in Cincinnati upheld the entire law,
as did appellate judges in Washington,
D.C., in recent days. The appellate court
- in Richmond, Va., ruled a judicial decision
on the law cannot be rendered until 2015,
after the penalties for not having insurance
have gone into effect.
Supporters have been encouraged that
the appellate rulings in Cincinnati and
Washington to uphold the law were joined
by two prominent conservative judges
appointed, by Republican presidents:
Jeffrey Sutton, appointed by George W.
Bush, and Laurence Silberman, appointed
by Ronald Reagan.
In Atlanta, however, Frank Hull, appoint-
ed by President Bill Clinton, joined with a
Republican colleague in striking down the
Earlier District Court rulings followed
political affiliation: Judges appointed by
Democratic presidents upheld the law, while
Republican appointees struck it down.'
\ In addition to deciding the constitution-
ality of the central mandate, the justices
also will determine whether the rest of the
law can take effect even if that core is held
unconstitutional. ,The law's opponents say
the whole thing should fall if the individual
mandate falls. -
The administration counters that most
of the law still could function, but says that
requirements that insurers cover anyone
and not set higher rates for people with'
pre-existing conditions are inextricably
linked with the mandate and shouldn't
remain in place without it

WASHINGTON -. Sidestepping

Eric Cantor, R-Va., declined to take
sides Monday on a proposal for high-

Republicans on Congress' supercom-

Nov. 23 deadline.

Despite that pledge, Cantor was
bullish in predicting agreement

because GOPvoters, having
tested several alternatives
to former Massachusetts
Gov. Mitt Romney, are
drawn to his policy acumen
and background as a leader

'This is bigger, deep-

the company's, cafeteria.
"In all honesty, I don't think
there's anybody else with.
the range of experience,

willingness to take the heat,

"I find it very formidable
to think that I might win,"
Gingrich still has a long
way to go to cap a turn-
He had the support of
just 7 percent of likely Iowa
GOP caucus-goers in The
Des Moines Register's
late-October poll, virtually
unchanged from June. He
also had just $353,000 in
his campaign account at
the outset of October.
But Gingrich said fund-
raising has seen an uptick
after a series of fall debates
where he has stayed out

sions or recommendations by a sim-
ple majority. Florida judges have the
final say but must give great weight
to jury recommendations.
State Sen. Thad Altman for a sec-
ond year is sponsoring a bill (SB
:772) that would require unanimous
findings of aggravating factors as well
as death sentence recommendations.
His legislation failed without so much
as a committee hearing earlier this
"I'm hoping ... we can at least get
a hearing," the Viera Republican told
other panel members. "I don't think
that's asking too much."
The panel's moderator, Mark
Schlakman, senior program direc-
tor at Florida State's Center for the
Advancement of Human Rights, was
Schlakman noted the new bill would
apply only to crimes committed after
Oct. 1, 2012. Prosecutors had been
,:worried about it being retroactive to
Also, since the last legislative
session, U.S. District Judge Jose E.
Martinez in Miami has ruled Florida's
death sentence law is unconstitutional
because jury recommendations don't
have to be unanimous. The state is
"Irrespective of where the appeal
goes, it underscores the concern
about that process," Schlakman said
in an interview.
Some lawmakers have opposed
changes because they were afraid
that might result in more appeals.
Martinez' ruling shows the opposite
may be the case, Schlakman said.
In a prerecorded video presenta-
tion, former Florida Supreme Court
Justice Raoul Cantero said the high'
court as long ago as 2005 had urged
unanimous jury recommendations..
Noting he was appointed by
Republican former Gov. Jeb Bush,
Cantero also criticized Bush's deci-
sion to abolish a state office that
represented death row inmates on
-appeal to save Ifioney and replaced
it with private lawyers. Two simi-
lar state offices covering the rest of
Florida were not closed.
North Florida inmates often are
represented by inexperienced or
unqualified lawyers and some of their
'briefs have been "atrocious," Cantero
He said it's not a liberal versus
conservative or Democrat versus
"This is an issue about rational-
ity, about making the justice system
rational and making sure that only
those that are guilty are convicted
and only those who commit the most
egregious murders are sentenced to
death," Cantero said.
Schlakman also is hopeful Gov.
Rick Scott,e Republican businessman
who never ran for public office before
last year, will be receptive.
"Gov. Scott approaches issues,
whether one agrees or disagrees with
his policy, with a fresh look and an
open mind without having had much
in the way of political background
on these issues and tends to look at
issues in general within the context of
business practices," Schlakman said.
He pointed out there has been
some progress with the Supreme
Court adopting the ABA's recommen-
dations for changes in death penalty
. Chief Justice Charles Canady also
has createdlan Innocence Commission
that's working on recommendations
for ways to avoid wrongful convic-
tions for crimes of all kinds. The
commission's'executive director, Les
Garringer, a former Monroe County
judge, said a separate panel should
be formed to examine issues unique
to the death penalty.
Schlackman also was hopeful a
death penalty documentary planned
by Florida State's College of Motion
Picture Arts would help shift public
The forum was held just one day
before the scheduled execution of
Oba Chandler. He was convicted of
killing an Ohio woman and her two
teenage daughters and throwing their
bodies into Tampa Bay in 1989.
ThQ focus, though, was not on
the execution or whether the death
penalty is right or wrong but on
improving the administration of jus-
tice although one lawmaker has filed
a bill to abolish it.
"Our goal and role is to change the
conversation," Schlakman said.

Oakland raid latest in Occupy crackdowns
By TERRY COLLINS
OAKLAND, Calif. Police clad in riot
gear and armed with tear gas cleared out
Oakland's anti-Wall Street encampment
early Monday, the latest law enforcement
crackdown amid complaints around the
country of health and safety hazards at
The raid at the Occupy Oakland camp,
one of the largest and most active sites
in the movement, came a day after police
in Portland, Ore., arrested more than 50
people while shutting, down its camp amid
complaints of drug use and sanitation
Police in Burlington, Vt, also evicted.
protesters after a man fatally shot himself
last week inside a tent.
Police staged a previous raid on the
Oakland encampment Oct 25, but Mayor
Jean Quan allowed protesters to re-estab-
lish their tent city. On Monday, however,
Quan said officials could no longer ignore
the problems the camp j 'sed.
"We came to this poirlt because Occupy
Oakland, I think,.began to take a different
path than the original movement" Quan
said. "The encampment became a place
where we had repeated violence and last
week a murder. We had to bring the camp
to an end before more people got hurt."
Demands increased for Oakland protest-
ers to pack up after a man was shot and
killed Thursday near the encampment at
the City Hall plaza.
Protesters claimed there was, no connec-
tion between the shooting and the camp.
But police identified the slain man as
Kayode Ola Foster, 25, of Oakland, saying
his family confirmed he had 'been staying
at the plaza.
Witnesses also told police that one of
two suspects in the shooting had also been .
a frequent resident at the plaza. The names
of the suspects have not been released.
Monday's raid came as no surprise to
protesters after the city issued its fourth
order to abandon the camp. About 300 offi-
cers from the Oakland Police Department
and seven other law enforcement agencies
moved in around 5:30 a.m., arresting 33
people and tearing down about 150 tents.
Another man was arrested later in the
morning for trying to break through police
barricades and spitting on officers.
Protesters vowed .to regroup- and
"I don't see how they're going to disperse
us," said -Ohad XReer, 30. of Oakland.
"There are thousands of people who are
going to come back."
Officials declared the operation a suc-
cess, saying all arrests were peaceful and
there were no reported injuries to protest-
ers or officers. Police said those taken into
custody likely will face charges of unlawful
assembly and lodging.
"This had been a very difficult situa-
tion," Quan said. "I'd tried to do what was
right for the city and keep the most people
safe at. every step."
Not everyone in Quan's camp agreed
with the show of force.
Dan Siegel, one of the mayor's top legal
advisers, resigned over Monday's raid,
saying officials should have done more
to work with protesters before sending in
police. Siegel, a longtime friend of Quan
who worked as an unpaid adviser, has
been a vocal critic of Oakland police and
their handling of the Oct. 25 raid.
Video footage of a protest after the Oct
25 raid showed officers using flash-bang
grenades and firing beanbag rounds into
the crowd, injuring a number of people and
prompting cries of police brutality.
Marine Corps veteran Scott Olsen was
left in critical condition after suffering a
head injury during that protest His case
became a rallying cry for the Occupy Wall
Street movement around the nation.
Olsen, 24, issued his first statement
Sunday since leaving a hospital.
"You'll be hearing more from me in the
near future and soon enough we'll see you
in our streets!" he posted on his Google+
account with a photograph of himself with
a neck brace and apparent bruising around
his left eye.
Protesters in Portland had been ordered
to leave their encampment by midnight
Saturday. However, in the hours leading
to the deadline, thousands of protesters
flooded two blocks of parkland where an
Occupy encampment first appeared Oct
Riot police moved into the Portland
camp shortly after noon Sunday, using
a loudspeaker to warn that anyone who
resisted risked arrest and "may also be
subject to chemical agents and impact
weapons." Demonstrat6rs chanted '"we are
a peaceful protest."
Officers used batons to shove a cluster
of protesters out of the camp and dragged
out those who resisted, including some
.Who were holed up in a makeshift fort
made of plywood, pallets, shopping carts
and other debris.

Cancer patient is stunned
by woman's tasteless joke
DEAR ABBY: I have
been battling breast cancer
and have been blessed to
have a lot of support from
family, friends and some
awesome medical provid-
ers. My husband's best
friend and his wife social-
ize with us quite often, and
the friendship is important
to him. I recently celebrat-
ed a birthday and these
friends had us over for a
belated birthday dinner.
They bought me beauti-
ful flowers and a gift. The
card attached made a joke
about my "aging breasts,"
which she found quite
Abby, I had a mastec-
tomy, which she knew
about! To make matters
worse, my hair has just
started to grow back from
the chemo, so I decided
to have some highlights
put in, and she told me
she didn't like my new
I am hurt and dumb-
founded by her insensitive
this isn't the first time
she has said things like
this. How do I tell her, I'm
offended by her rudeness
my husband's friendship
with them?'- HARRIED
FRIEND: You nailed it
The woman is insensitive
but you said she has also
made tasteless comments
in the past. For the sake
oi the friendship between
Abigail Van Buren
your husbands, tune her
out and spend less time
with her one-on-one. It's
OK to tell her that her joke
about your "aging breasts"
hurt your feelings in light
of your mastectomy, and
that as your hair is grow-
ing back you thought
you'd like to try something
"different." However, if you
use the word "offended"
she'll probably become
defensive, so avoid that
A final thought: Most
people are terrified of
cancer.. People some-
times try to make jokes
about things that make
them uncomfortable in
an effort, to diffuse those
feelings. This may be the
reason the woman tried
to joke about it, so don't
let it cause you to carry a

recently reconciled with
my girlfriend of six years,

months since our last fall-
out and longest breakup.

that she was interested

another and '"Tish" and I
slept together. Now she's
I'm happy to be back
with Molly now, but have
been contacted recently
by Tish with proof of the
pregnancy. I'm afraid
Molly will leave me if she
knows about it She's the
woman of my dreams

spend the rest of my life
with. Help, please. IT'S
