2nd-in-command sidelined at LCPD
Capt. Robert Smith
placed on paid leave
after filing complaint.
By TONY BRITT
Lake City Police Department Capt
Robert Smith was placed on administra-
tive leave with pay Tuesday after he filed a
complaint against another LCPD captain.
City officials have launched an investigation
into Smith's -claims, which center on alle-
gations of employment discrimination and
"internal operations disagreements" with
Chief Argatha Gilmore as well as conflictf'
between Smith and Capt John Blanchard,
according to a memo from City Manager
Wendell Johnson to Smith.
Few details of-Smith's allegations were
available. Smith declined
comment for this story and
city officials denied a public
records request for a copy of

25-page memo, along with 60 pages of exhib-
.its, from Smith, according to the memo. The
following day Smith added to his complaint
information concerning a laptop computer
lost by an officer under Smith's supervision..
In the memo, Johnson said Gilmore ques-
tioned "why the laptop was reported as a
'grand theft' when it appears to have been
lost by the officer. The Chief also ques-
tioned why the loss of an expensive piece of
equipment with a potential security breach
was not immediately brought to her atten-
tion." Johnson wrote that Smith considered
Gilmore's "questions and response to this
issue as ah overt attempt to single you out
and t6 be harassment."
Johnson placed Smith on paid administra-
tive leave on Tuesday.
"That was my decision totally my deci-
sion based on my own judgment," Johnson
said. "Chief Gilmore had no say in this and
no role in this decision. It was mine and only

However, assistant city attorney Richard
Stadler, who is conducting the investigation
into Smith's complaints, told Smith he would

Under city policy, an employee can be
placed on administrative leave for a variety
of reasons, Johnson said.

was told each sailor has 20 square
feet for personal belongings, most
of the space being a bed. "I have
a coffee table bigger than that,"
he said. The sacrifice made by
soldiers past and present struck
Soto. "What was true then is true
today," he said. Soldiers give up
all life's daily comforts to protect
their country. "Could you imagine
living for months at a time in 20
square feet?" he said.
Vic Vasco, a member of the Blue
Grey Army, served as a model
for the poster. Soto first took the
picture of Vasco 11,years ago, but
did not use the image because it
never seemed right, he said. In
151 drafts of the painting, Soto
tried different backgrounds like,
trees, cavalry soldiers and Civil
War generals but ultimately took
them out. The focus instead is on
the individual soldier, Soto said.
"It's just him."
Stephen Witt, commanding gen-
eral of the Blue Gray Army and
Lake City mayor, said the poster is
a great contribution to the festival,
the largest in Lake City.
The poster is an integral part of
the festival, said Harvey Campbell,
executive director of the Lake
City/Columbia County Tourist
Development Council. Every year
the poster attracts attention and is
hung on walls in a place of honor,
not gathering dust in a closet,

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2011
Thursday, November 17, 2011.
ate last week, the two
top Republicans on the
Senate Armed Services
L Defense Secretary
Leon Panetta to outline the impact
of $1.2 trillion in automatic spend-
ing cuts on the national defense if
the congressional deficit reduction
panel fails to reach agreement by.
Lest Panetta miss the point
of the letter from Sens. John
McCain, Ariz., and Lindsay
Graham, S.C., the two lawmakers
asked the Pentagon chief to spell
out the "devastating effects" of
the cuts on the military.
Panetta, a seasoned
Washington veteran White
House chief of staff, budget
director, CIA chief knew a'
slow pitch down the middle of
the plate when he saw one, and
the next week, he was back up
on Capitol Hill with itemized
lists of the devastation.
On top of $450 billion in
already agreed-upon cuts, the
Pentagon would be looking
at another $500 billion in cuts
starting at the end of next year.
In 2013, that would mean'
a 23-percent cut in Pentagon
spending that Panetta agreed
would indeed be "devastating." ,
According to Panetta, it would
mean the smallest ground force
since 1946, when we were woe-
fully unprepared for World War
II, the smallest number of naval
ships since 1915, when wei had
yet to enter World War I, and
the smallest Air Force in histo-
ry. (The history of the Air Force
as a separate branch dates to,
1947, when it was still flush with
World War 11 aircraft.)
If'McCain and Graham were
looking for apocalyptic terms
in which to frame the "devastat-
inig" cuts, Panetta was ready
low force" and "paper tiger"
were bandied about.
'.This is not t. say Panetta
was exaggerating, although
the Pentagon has certainly
been known to do that But it's
instructive to see Congress -
cringe when faced with the con-
sequences of its own tough talk.

The holidays are here!
"T Y ou know its the
k holiday season when
and fast food res- -
tad nfs put oh-the
Christmas music. This seems,
to begin earlier each year!
There's a chill in the air.
People flock to the shops.
Christmas lights along roof
eaves get plugged in. There's a
feeling of hope and cheemin the
air. Lights in the'church are on
But are all the feelings good
ones? Really don't want to rain
onyour parade, but statistically,
the death rate and suicide rate
gtually increase during the
holiday season! Why? Many
people stress over changes
in their schedule, like taking
" time off the job, making more
shopping trips, and spending
more money on gifts and mak-
ing merry than any other time
of the year. Some are anxious:
about going into debt over .
spending, or increasing the.
debt they already worry about
So, your holiday experience
could either be better or worse
than the rest of your year.
What are the causes of these
feelings?- Is it the trimmings
and props that go along with
the season? Psychologists
generally agree that we are not

merely the victims of our feel-
ings, but that it's really about
what we do, arid how we think,-
that influences our feelings.
SHow can thinking affect our
feelings? If we choose to see
the good side, to interpret what
happens around us, as enjoy-
able, fun, satisfying, cheerful,
and meaningful, well find our
holidays to be more joyous. If
we miss being away from our
careers or school or the people
we typically see, every day, or
worry about extra spending,
or other seasOnal concerns, we
feel worse. Research shows
that people who think positively
arid make an effort to enjoy life
actually live years longer than
those who think negatively.
And how can our behavior,
what we do, affect our feel-
ings? Just being active brings
up our moods. Find things
" to do during the holidays that
you enjoy. What we do with ,
our holidays involves making
choices. Reach out arid con-
nect with others who we care
about;-family, friends, relatives,
and groups we can join. Keep
a calendar so you don't miss
out on things you would like to
include in your holidays.
Also, remember that even
smiling or frowning is a behav-
ior. Your expression commu-
nicates your feelings to those
around you, and can brighten.
or darken their feelings, too.
Research shows that when

Options for responding
to the Iranian threat
A report issued by
Atomic Energy ,
SAgency last week
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei will
soon have their fingers on
nuclear triggers unless serious
actions are taken. "The biggest
threat to the United States," a
senior U.S. military official told
reporters, "has come into focus
and it's' Iran."
You think? Thirty-two years
ago this month, Iranian revolu-.
tionaries committed their first
act of war against America:
storming our embassy in
Tehran and-taking 52 diplomats
hostage. Four years later, the
regime deployed Hezbollah,
its terrorist foreign legion, to
slaughter 258 American Marines-
and diplomats in Beirut. In 1996,
the FBI believes, the ayatol-
lahs ordered the bombing of
the Khobar Towers in Saudi
Arabia, killing 19 U.S. airmen.
Tehran has supported militias in
Iraq that have killed hundreds
of American soldiers. It has
provided assistance to both the
Taliban and al-Qaida..Iran's rul-
ers have vowed that "a world
without American ...is attain-
able." Last month, law enforce-
ment authorities revealed details
of an Iranian plot to blow up a .
restaurant in Washington, D.C.
. A quick review of those cur-
rently on the table:.
Diplomacy, outreach and
engagement Been there, done
-that Almost three years ago,
Obama told Iran's rulers that
if they will unclenchh their fist,
they will find an extended hand,
from us." That fist remains firm-
ly clenched. Anti-Americanism is
a central pillar of Khomeinism,
the regime's murderous utopian
ideology. What we have not
done: engage with the Iranian
opposition. Iranian dissidents
would'benefit enormously from
receiving America's moral sup-
port openly and America's mate-
rial support covertly.
Sanctions: Passed by
Congress on a bipartisan basis,
sanctions have cost Iran tens
of billions of dollars. This has
weakened the regime but not
nearly enough. "Crippling" sanc-
tions have been threatened but
not implemented. On Tuesday,
my Foundation for Defense of
Democracies colleague, Mark
Dubowitz, testified before
the House Subcommittee on,
National Security, Homeland
Defense and Foreign Operations
on tougher and more creative
approaches that could dramati-
cally reduce Iran's oil income
- from which the regime.derives
80 percent of its hard currency
export earnings -without roil-
ing oil markets or damaging the
U.S. military force: A last resort
that would probably feature an
aerial campaign to degrade Iran's
nuclear facilities but no boots
on the ground. The risks of such
action should not be minimized.
By the same token, standing up to
Khamenei and Ahmadinejad will
not be easier once they possess a
Appease, temporize, pos-
ture and gesture: That's a fair
description of both American
and European policy toward Iran
over the past three decades.
It's taken a very long time for
the Iranian threat to come into
focus for many of America's
leaders. And it's still not certain
that they will respond, seriously
and effectively, to this clear and

1 of a kind: Barrel racing betting set to open
By BRENDAN FARRINGTON
GRETNA -- In what
might be an event that's
unique to this small, rural
North Florida town, opera-
tors are planning to open a
spot where gamblers may
bet on barrel racing -
if opponents don't win a
challenge of the permit.
Gretna plans to begin live
racing Dec. 1 under a pari-
mutuel permit issued for
quarter horse racing. The
Florida Quarter Horse
Racing Association arid
the Florida Quarter Horse
Owners and Breeders
Association, however, are
asking the state to void the
permit, saying it wasn't
intended for barrel racing.
"I believe we are quarter
horse -racing," said James
Dorris, president of PCI
Gaming Authority, which
will operate the racing
arena and a poker room
next to it. They are also
asking Gadsden County
voters to approve slot
machines for the facility.
While the horses used
in barrel racing are quar-
ter horses, it's not the tra-
ditional flat track, which
is similar thoroughbred
racing. It. involves sprints
instead of longer distanc-
es. Barrel racing is a wom-
en's rodeo event in which
riders complete a clover-
leaf pattern around three
barrels and compete for
time. The Georgia-based
National Barrel Horse
Association says it knows
of no other place in the
country where pari-mutu-
el gambling is allowed on
The operators hope to
eventually add a track for
flat track racing. But a
dispute with the quarter
horse racing groups has
shelved those plans 'for
"At the end of the day it
comes down to a few flat
track racers want to keep

New York begins
hearings on cracking
DANSVILLE, N.Y. One New York town
supervisor cited the benefits of sorely
needed jobs and revenue in gas drilling in
the Marcellus Shale formation, but only if
the state keeps a close tabs on oil and gas
Tuscarora Town Supervisor Robert
Nichols touched on both sides of the
debate as New York opened its first public
hearing Wednesday on draft rules govern-
ing the high-volume hydraulic fracturing
process used to blast natural gas wells into
production. It was the first of eight three-
hour hearings over four days ,on proposed
gas drilling rules.
"Does (Department of Environmental
Conservation) have enough inspectors to
make sure the casing and cement is put in
the ground properly so we can all drink our
water when this is done?" asked Nichols,
who is also a Steuben County legislator.
'This could be a real plus for our com-
munity. I have faith in DEC that you folks
will do the right thing if you have the
manpower to protect our resources."
The initial hearing drew a vocal mix of
elected officials, environmentalists, strug-
gling farmers and land owners eager to
make money from their gas leases, as
well as energy industry representatives,
who lined up to be heard in three-minute
segments. About 150 of more than 850 in
attendance signed up to comment, but only
64 got a chance at the microphone. An eve-
ning session was also planned.
The state has refused to issue permits
for drilling in the lucrative Marcellus Shale
formation since 2008, when it began review-
ing the process called hydrofracking, or
cracking, used to free natural gas from
dense shale rock a mile underground.
Opponents fear cracking will contami-
nate water supplies with either leaked
methane or chemicals added to the mil-
lions of gallons of cracking water used to
free natural gas from dense shale rock a
Opponents ,said the industry would
clash with the lifeblood wine industry and
destroy the tranquility of the picturesque,
agricultural Finger Lakes, where the hear-
ings opened in the village of Dansville.,
The .wine industry and related tourism
"would not be able to co-exist with frack-
ing," said Jane Russell, the tentative winner
of the race for supervisor in Pulteney, a
small town of vintners and alpaca and dairy
Others foresaw roads choked by heavy
trucks, declining property values, water

Why is Tom's

how frustrating it is when you can't
"Stand Up" for yourself. Especially
in the bedroom! And even though
your wife tells you "its okav"- she
secretly wishes you weren't such "a
softy". For your sake and hers.
Tom M. had a big problem. His love-
life was "coming up short". And like
a lot of men his age, he had a tough
time "performing" in the bedroom.
Bu4 Tom's wife was kind. She
reassured him with words like "it's
no big deal"--- but it really was. So
she urged him to get some help. He
took her advice...
Tom searched the web for answers,
and came up with nothing but scams.
'Everything he tried failed. He thought
about asking his doctor about that

$30.0k per tablet). Plus, it doesn't

The Secret of the

And by age 60, you're left with a
fraction of the HGH you used to have.
The signs of aging become impossible
to ignore... narrower shoulders and
more weight around the middle...
thinner skin that loses elasticity...
creases and wrinkles... aching joints
and brittle bones... all signs that your
body is gradually breaking down.
Add to that, decreased desire and
ability and a loss of muscle tone that
leads to a dangerous loss of agility
and balance. But none of this has to
Secret of The Rich and Famous
As Tom continued his research,
he came across something unusual.
He read that male actors in the adult
film industry use something called
"Herbal Virility". Before filming,
the actors would pop one of these
tiny pills in their mouth--- so -when
the director yells "action"- there's
always plenty of it!
It's been the secret of adult film
producers for years! That's because
instead of taking a full-hour for it to

Tom was excited to try it.
After all, Herbal Virility helped
thousands of men get back their
confidence in the bedroom. And since

Here's How It Works:
In 1998, three scientists shared a
Nobel Prize for discovering that the
chemical compound nitric oxide (or
NO) plays a vital role in widening
your blood vessels so blood flows
more freely... especially in the
"intimate areas" bf your body.
When you're young, nitric oxide
flows abundantly through your body.
Unfortunately, as you grow older, your
NO production starts to diminish. As
a result, so does your love life. That's
why Herbal Virility is so important.
Just pop a Herbal Virility into your
mouth. Its proprietary formulation
has no bitter taste ahd dissolves
quickly into your bloodstream.
Herbal Virility contains all 25
of the most potent natural male
enhancement boosters on earth. It
helps kick-start your body's natural
ability to produce nitric oxide on-
its own. So' you're ready for action

Iowa egg farm pays salmonella victims
By RYAN J. FOLEY
IOWA CITY, Iowa Dozens of people
sickened last year after eating salmonella-
tainted eggs will receive compensation,
including six-figure checks for two chil-
dren, in the first wave of legal settlements
with the U.S. egg producer blamed in the
outbreak, attorneys in the case have told
The Associated Press.
U.S.' officials say 1,900 people fell ill
during the outbreak that started in July
2010 and was later linked to contaminated
eggs supplied by Wright County Egg and
Hillandale Farms of Iowa. 'Both compa-
nies voluntarily recalled 550' million eggs
Wright County Egg, owned by egg
magnate Jack DeCoster, reached financial
settlements with roughly 40 salmonella
victims during a Sept 14 mediation con-
ference, both sides confirmed. The finan-
cial payouts are coming from Selective
Insurance, the company's insurer.
"The DeCoster family continues to sym-
pathize with those who became ill, and
we are pleased tobegin resolving these
cases," the DeCoster Family said a state-
ment to the AP.
While the settlements are confidential,
details of three became public last week
when a U.S. judge in Iowa approved deals
totaling $366,000 for children from Texas,
California and Iowa who were hospitalized
after becoming sick. They offer a glimpse
into the litigation and show payments var-
ied widely depending on how seriously the
claimant was sickened.,
Regulators put most of the blame on
Wright County Egg, which sold chickens
and feed to Hillandale. Wright County Egg
also had more illnesses linked to its eggs
and was cited for numerous violations..
Inspectors found samples of salmonella
at both farms along with dead chickens,
insects, rodents, towers of manure and
other filthy conditions. A congressional
investigation revealed that Wright County
Egg's testing found salmonella samples
more than 400 times between 2008 and
"In short, the Wright County Egg facility
was a major salmonella outbreak waiting
to happen," attorney Bill Marler wrote
in demand letters seeking compensation
from the company.
Salmonella is a bacteria that typically
causes fever, cramps and/diarrhea within
12 to 72 hours of eating a tainted product
It lasts for several days and can require
The. largest of three settlements made
public last week was $250,000 for a 3-year-
old boy who had severe diarrhea arid
vomiting and collapsed days later at pre-
school, where his mother found him on
the ground shivering and holding his
right leg in pain. The boy had to spend 'a
week in the hospital because the infection
had. spread to boles and muscles and was
The boy's parents, Jennifer and Jason
Tucker, said in' legal documents, that it,
was heartbreaking to watch their son in
so much pain. :
Elsewhere, $100,000 was- awarded in-
the case of an 11-year-old California girl,
who fell violently ill and was hospitalized
for four days; iand $16,000 was awarded
to a 1'6-year-old Iowa girl who was rushed.
to the emergency room after eating a
restaurant sandwich dipped in egg-batter
and fried. .
'U.S. District Judge Mark Bennett on
Nov. 10 approved the settlements, which,
include domplensation 'for medical bills,
legal fees, and money for the child's pain
and suffering that won't be available until
they turn 18.
Marler said details of the other cases
were confidential and he declined to put
a price tag on the total value. He said
the children's settlements needed the
approval of a federal judge because they
are minors, and that is why they became
The settlements do not end the, legal
problems facing DeCoster, who built an
egg empire stretching' from Maine to
Iowa and has a long record of labor,

Attorney Ron Simon said he has sent
letters seeking conipensation on behalf
of 70 individuals sickened during the out-
break "an enormous amount of money"
he declined to reveal. He said he hopes to
reach settlements in those cases during a
mediation conference scheduled for next

DEAR MR. MEYER:
Thank you for lending
your expertise and shar-

Responses to that letter
included testimonies from
women wanting "Lacks" to
know she was not alone.
My newspaper readers
DEAR ABBY: My
mother found herself preg-
nant shortly after she and
my father were married.
She was nothappy about
it, and it caused a lot of
conflict She made my life
unbearable. I think "Lacks"
should rethink hei options.
It took years of therapy
for me to realize I was not
to blame for my parents'
fights or for everything
that was wrong. Mother:
was a classic narcissist,
and her toxic relationship-
with me didn't end until
after her death.
Somewomen should not
be mothers. If they can't
be, they should place the

way, the child will have a
chance to grow and thrive

DEAR ABBY: I strug-

years and forced myself to
give up'my career to be a
stay-at-home mom because
I'd been told it was best
for him. It was agonizing'
for me. I wondered if I was
However, now that my
son is school-age, I have
discovered I am actually a
great mom and love spend-
ing time with him. What I
lacked as a "baby mom,"
I have more than made
up for as a "kid mom." As
such, I have returned to
the workforce and have no
guilt over dropping off my
second child a toddler -
at day care.
DEAR ABBY: I am a
birth doula who assists
couples through pregnan-
cies and birth. I don't find
every client with a big
belly on a pink cloud. I
highly recommend a certi-
fied birth doula to help
through the hard times.
