He also said that Belk
sold a lot of gift cards
prior to Christmas and
that they expected many
customers to use them
afterward.
Batte said that the
day after Christmas in
the retail world can be
compared to Black Friday-
because of all the sale
items. This year Dec. ,
26 is expected to rank
behind only Black Friday
and Friday, Dec.' 23.
"We currently have a
sale on our Christmas
items and winter clothes,"
he said.

Legislators give 'Caylee's Law' a look


Florida lawmakers may
consider a response to
Casey Anthony verdict.


By KYLE HIGHTOWER
Associated Press
ORLANDO When the Florida
Legislature begins its 2012 session next
month it will do so just six months after
a jury acquitted Casey Anthony of kill-
ing her 2-year-old daughter in one of the
state's most high-profile murder trials.
That verdict has some legislators pushing
a law that would make it a felony if a parent
or guardian doesn't tell authorities a child
is missing or dead within a certain period.
Some legal experts and law enforcement
officials say the law as written reaches too
far.
Florida House Bill 49 and Senate bills
84, 86 and 146 are among similar "Caylee's
Law" legislation that have sprung up in
more than a dozen states since the contro-
versial July verdict and are among several
new crime laws legislators will consider
beginning Jan. 10.
Lawmakers also will be looking at
tweaking Florida's drug law, and examin-
ing legislation designed to keep juvenile

Rep. Bill Hager, R-Boca Raton, co-

said he respects the jury's verdict in the

to strengthen existing laws.

"I'm thankful that my husband is

Travis, 24, returned in November
from a seven-month deployment in
Afghanistan.
"Every time he comes home it's like

CNN's Morgan testimony has little


impact in court of public opinion

By DAVID BAUDER
AP Television Writer II I I


NEW YORK- CNN's
Piers Morgan was in the
position few television
interviewers like to be this
week: on the other side of
the microphone.
He testified by video
link about his past life as
a London tabloid editor
before a British panel look-
.ing into media ethics. It was
,big news back home, but
his appearance made little
splash in the country where
he's known as a celebrity
interviewer and former host
of a prime-time talent show.
Experts suggested on
,Thursday that this week's
. testimony won't have
'.much effect on his stand-
.ing in the United States,
while cautioning things
could change if future
evidence emerges to tie
him directly to hacking by
journalists into private cell
phone accounts.
"I didn't see anything
that would make them turn
him or the television off,"
said Frank Sesno, director
of the School of Media and
Public Affairs at George
Washington University and
a former CNN Washington
bureau chief.
Morgan was behind
his desk at CNN shortly
after his testimony. It
has been nearly a year
since he replaced veteran
interviewer Larry King,
and his guests Tuesday
'included former GOP


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Piers Morgan, right, host of CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight," leaves the CNN building in Los
Angeles, Tuesday, Dec. 20. A tense and sometimes hostile Piers Morgan refuses to disclose
details about the most damning link between himself and Britain's phone hacking scandal
- his acknowledgment that he listened to a phone message left by Paul McCartney for his
then-wife Heather Mills.


presidential candidate Tim
Pawlenty and football ana-
lyst Tony Dungy. Rocker
Lenny Kravitz was on
Wednesday's show.
Television news networks
in Britain carried Morgan's
testimony live. Not so in the
United States. CNN did a
handful of reports summing
up the appearance, with
some video footage. Market
leader Fox News Channel's
Shepard Smith mentioned it


during a newscast, with no
video. MSNBC also did brief
reports, and it was a topic on
the "Morning Joe" political
talk show the next day.
While Morgan didn't win
raves for his performance
- The Associated Press
called him "tense and
sometimes hostile" the
headlines were primar-
ily about what he didn't
say. The stories focused
on Morgan's refusal to


illuminate how he heard
a phone message left by
Paul McCartney for then-
wife Heather Mills.
That failure to advance
the incident, coupled with
limited exposure at a time
when many news consum-
ers are preoccupied within
the holidays, contributed
to the sense that the event
didn't mean much for
Morgan in the United
States.

Boiling cane juice evokes


memories of old Florida


By JEFF KUNKENBERG
St. Petersburg Times
: PASCO -The cane
grinding begafi when a
determined mule named
Molly, all 15 hands of her,
commenced ambling in
a circle to pull a belt that
powered a machine that
spat out brown juice. "Here
is what you need to under-
stand," Steve Melton said,
as Molly trudged along.
"This is how we used to do
it in Florida."
Melton, 62, holds a cane
grinding every December
at his Pasco County ranch
as a reminder of a time
when Floridians couldn't
buy sugar in a bag at Publix.
SFrom the Panhandle to the
Keys, folks of every race
and creed grew sugar cane,
harvested the stalks in the
fall, squeezed the stalks into
juice and then boiled the
juice into sweet syrup they
I prinlded into coffee or over
pancakes or even meat In
the age before mass com-
pmunication, a cane grinding
,'was also a social gathering
where Floridians might
"exchange news and gossip,
tell jokes and share their
dreams.
Now it's ancient history,
a demonstration at the
state fair, perhaps, or a pic-
ture in the history books.
Melton and a few other
stubborn folks scattered
across the state hold out
They invite friends, neigh-
bors and interested histo-
rians to watch. By making
cane syrup they keep in
touch with their past They
think about loved ones long
dead, grandmothers who
made from-scratch biscuits
swimming in cane syrup.
"It's our heritage," Steve
Melton was saying from
beneath his cowboy hat.


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Steve Melton pours a sample of boiling-hot.sugar cane syrup
to check its temperature and water content. Melton, 62, was
celebrating an old Florida tradition of communal sugar cane
grinding at his ranch near Dade City.



Aircraft wreck found

off Atlantic coast


JUPITER A scuba
diver in Florida says he's
found the remains of a
WWII-era aircraft on the
ocean floor.
Randy Jordan of
Emerald Charters tells
The Palm Beach Post
(http://bit.ly/sliacg) that
he was diving at a depth of
around 200 feet four miles
off Jupiter last week when
he spotted the remains
of an aircraft. The plane
was upside down but still
mostly intact.
Jordan says he believes


the plane is a Curtiss
Helldiver SB2C.
If he's right, it would
be the second Helldiver
wreck found underwa-
ter in two years. One of
the planes was found off
Hawaii in January 2010.
Jordan says he has plans
to take more divers to the
site, but they have to pro-
ceed cautiously because
the plane still could contain
live ammunition or human
remains.

from roads. The National Transportation
Safety Board also was investigating.
The National Weather Service in
Jacksonville reported that there was light
fog with overcast conditions in the area
but no rain.
"As we mourn this tragic event, we
will remember the selfless and intense
dedication they brought to making a dif-
ference in the lives of our patients," John
Noseworthy, Mayo Clinic president and
chief executive officer, said in a statement.
"We recognize the commitment transplant
teams make every day in helping patients
at Mayo Clinic and beyond. Our thoughts
and prayers are with the families."


FAA records show the Bell 206 helicop-
ter is operated by SK Jets. An employee
who declined to give her name said the
St. Augustine company had no immediate
information.
Gary Robb, a Kansas City aviation attor-
ney specializing in helicopter safety, said
SK Jets is known as a careful and safe
operator in the industry. The small, light-
weight craft has low weight and speed
capabilities and is primarily used by traffic
reporters or police departments, Robb
said.
."It's not usually used'in donor flights,"
he said.
"If you're on a mission where time is


sensitive, why use an engine that is low
performance?" Robb said, adding that the
helicopter has a cramped cabin.
An NTSB investigator will scour the
crash site for clues and look into the pilot's
experience and any factors that might
have impaired the pilot, any environmental
factors such as birds or low visibility that
may have contributed to the crash, and
any mechanical problems with the helicop-
ter, he said.
The Bell 206 helicopter usually has an
older engine no longer installed in new
helicopters, Robb said.
"We've seen a number of instances
where that engine simply failed," Robb


said.
The crash and others like it illustrate the
delicate nature of transporting organs.
In 1990, a surgeon and. an assistant flying
to pick up a donor heart for a patient wlre
killed in a plane crash in New Mexico. And
in 2007, a twin-engine plane carrying a
team of surgeons and technicians along
with a set of lungs on ice being brought
to a patient already prepped for surgery
- crashed into the choppy waters of Lake
Michigan. Six were killed.
Doctors ultimately got another set of
donor lungs that were transplanted into
the patient.


SW Fla. family finds


horse slain in yard


NAPLES Authorities say a southwest
Florida family found one of their horses
slain in their backyard on Christmas
morning.
Collier County Sheriff's spokeswoman
Karie Partingon tells the Naples Daily
News (http://bit.ly/sIFwgz ) that the
family told investigators that it looked as
though the horse had been killed with
an ax.
Vanessa Gutierrez told the newspaper


that her father discovered their 10-year-
old mare Muneca dead when he went to
feed her Sunday morning.
Gutierrez says the family plans to bury
the horse Monday and rebuild the fence
around their property.
The family's says Muneca's foal, Bambi,
had been stolen last month. That case has
not been solved.

his daily life. "I think once
you go to combat, every-
one experiences PTSD," he
said. Everyday sounds or
sights can remind Travis
of combat. Car tires run-
ning over gravel can sound
like machine guns, he said.
"I'm sure there's a lot that
have a hard time dealing
with it."
When he returned,
Amanda and stepson
Austin, 7, were waiting at
the base airport in'Hawaii.
"It was pretty tough on
her," Travis said. When
he had access to a phone
line the two would talk. He
sent her flowers when he
had access to the Internet.
Sometimes it would be
eight weeks before Travis
could contact Amanda.
She mailed him care
packages of snacks, pic-
tures and letters. Travis said
it took him several weeks
to figure out why Amanda
sent him a Teenage Mutant
Ninja Turtle action figure.
The couple has a collec-
tion of turtle figurines from
places they have traveled.
Last year Travis was


on leave for Christmas.
"He hasn't had to miss a
Christmas yet," she said.
"I've missed a lot of birth-
days," he said. Travis also
missed his grandmother's
passing and his first wed-
ding anniversary.
Travis's absence was
also hard on Austin and
his stepdaughter Emma, 3.
The children enjoyed when
Travis has access to Skype,
so they could hear and see
him.
Austin's class at Summers
Elementary School wrote
letters to Travis and fel-
low soldiers, who respond-
ed. Travis said the chil-
dren didn't get the letters
because of a mail system
problem.
Once Austin looked out
the window of their home
and said he saw a man in a
uniform, not realizing what
that could mean. Amanda
said she nearly froze in fear
thinking it was news that
Travis was hurt or worse,
although it was not.
Amanda kept the flowers
Travis sent in May, soon
after he deployed. "You


never know when it's gonna
be the last time," she said.
"I came from a military
background. I always said
I wouldn't marry into one,
but I did," she said.
"It's never off your mind,"
said Amanda of the dan-
ger Travis faces. "You have
to find ways to deal with
it." For support Amanda
turns to the wives of other
Marines.
Some of her friends
who don't have a military
background don't under-
stand, she said. "They say
he signed up for it. You
knew what you were get-
ting into." I
"When you really love
someone you are willing
to wait for them," she said.
"We do what we have to do
and it works."
"He's just a really good
husband," she said.
Despite the worrying
and months apart, "it's
worth it," she said. "He's
accomplished something
he's wanted to do his whole
life."

CAYLEE: Several bills proposed
Continued From Page 1A


failure to report a child missing," Hager
said. "This addresses that."
Casey Anthony was charged with mur-
der following Caylee's disappearance in
June 2008. The 25-year-old didn't report
her child missing for 31 days before tell-
ing police that a fictitious babysitter had
kidnapped the child. She maintained the
same story to her family and authorities
until the child's skeletal remains were
found in some woods in December 2008
not far from the family home.
Anthony stood trial for her toddler's
death last summer, using the defense that
Caylee drowned in the family pool, that
she panicked and that her father, a former
police officer, helped her cover up the
death by placing the child's body in the
woods. He denied it. She was acquitted of
murder, but convicted of four charges of
lying to police and released a short time
later on time served.
"I don't think we can prevent irrespon-
sible parenting, but we can certainly put in
place penalties for parents that fail in the
most basic fundamental responsibility to
safeguard a child," Hager said. "Are there
many instances a like law like this would
apply? There's a precious few. But we don't
want a situation like this to arise again where
prosecutors and juries don't have the neces-
sary tools."
The verdict elicited largely a visceral
response nationwide, with many people feel-
ing Anthony got away with murder. It led to
an Oklahoma woman starting a petition on
the activist website Change.org calling for a
federal Caylee's Law. The petition has gar-
nered nearly 1.3 million signatures to date.
The quick response by so many state
legislatures to write versions of the law has
drawn criticism.
"Caylee's Law is a legislative reaction to the
public's frustration with the Casey Anthony
verdict," said Pace (NY) Law School profes-
sor Leslie Garfield, a graduate of UF's Levin
College of Law. "Legislators in our country
have a history of proposing laws that are
reactionary to public outcry following per-
ceived injustice to children."
Hager doesn't shy away from that senti-
ment, but said that doesn't ,mean the law
doesn't have merit.

"My bill was, in fact, a response to a high-
profile crime," Hager said. "And No. 2, this
alleged crime occurred in 2008, so my arith-
metic suggests that three years is not a knee-
jerk response. This is going through a formal
process, like every bill goes through."'
In November a Senate Select Committee
on Protecting Florida's Children which was
formed in response to Anthony's acquittal,
recommended increasing the penalty for
intentionally providing false information if
the missing child is 16 years or under and
suffers serious injuries or dies.
But the committee declined to recom-
mend setting any deadlines for reporting a
child missing or dead. Some proposals had
suggested reporting deadlines between 12
and 48 hours.
Manatee County Sheriffs Office Major
Connie Shingledecker, who has also served
on a Florida Department of Children and
Families task force, told Senate committee
members in October that she worried such
specific timeframes could confuse parents as
to whether they are being required to wait a
certain time to report a child missing.
University of Miami law professor Tamara
Lave said whafs troubling most to her about
the proposed Caylee's Law legislation as pro-
posed is a strict liability law, meaning it could
punish those who aren't intentionally trying
to commit a crime by notifying anyone -
like family members or a minister- before
authorities.
"One could respond you must depend
on prosecutor to do right thing," Lave said.
"'That's a dangerous way to proceed with
criminal lawjgcause you,on't always have
good or competent prosecutors."
Other criminal bills sure to draw attention
this session include Senate Bill 448, which
would shorten the sentences of low-level,
nonviolent prisoners who complete drug
and other rehabilitation while in the pro-
gram at separate facilities on or near prison
grounds.
It would be open to inmates with sen-
tences of no more than five years and have
completed half of their terms. It would be
the first significant change to Florida's
requirement that inmates serve at least 85
percent of their sentences, which went into
effect in 1995.

ONE
OPINION


D.C. losing

patience

with its

Occupy-ers

Many of the
Occupy campers
dug in two long'
blocks from the
White House
have gone home for a week or
so of holiday R and R, though
they left their tents standing for
a New Year's return.
When they come back, they
may find intensified impatience
with their protracted takeover
of McPherson Square, soon to
enter its fourth month.
Unlike in many other cities,
Washington, D.C., officials,
along with the National Park
Service, have largely left the
protesters alone.
Whit's starting to grate is the
cost of the Occupation. And,
American taxpayers, you are like-
ly to pick up the ever-rising bill.
D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray
last week said the city's cost
mostly for the 24-hour police
presence accorded the camp-
ers, as well as the mobilization
needed when they take over
city streets is $1.6 million
and growing.
Grumbling is also grow-
ing on Capitol Hill, where
House Oversight Committee
Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif.,
has begun an investigation into
why the encanipment is allowed
to stay.
And the 99-Percenters the
working stiffs on whose behalf
the movement was formed
- are getting fed up, too. The
Occupy forces periodically
block K Street, a thoroughfare
synonymous to some with the
lobbyists and lawyers with
offices there.
But K Street is also a key
cross-town route for the buses
that bring thousands of 99-
Percenters to their jobs every
day, and, unlike the 1-Percenters,
they have no other way to get to
work or back home.
So what to the Occupy-ers is a
meaningful protest is to the ordi-
nary Joes a miserable commute.
And those workers, more than
any protester, are the ones who
deserve a "break to rejuvenate,"
as one protester described her *
holiday respite at home.

Franklin Roosevelt
didn't like what the
Supreme Court did
to key pieces of his
New Deal remedy
for the Great Depression, so he
tried to change the nature of the
beast. He was going to change
the size of the court and pack it
with sympathetic judges.
Roosevelt, of course,
ran smack into the U.S.
Constitution, an alarmed and
outraged press, and a reluctant
Congress that was concerned
enough about the dictatorial
implications of the plan to stop
it
Now one of the front-runners
in the race for the Republican
presidential nomination, Newt
Gingrich, says that if he were in
the Oval Office he would have
no hesitation in taking on the
third branch of government,
the federal judiciary, abolishing
some courts where he didn't
like the rulings. He also allows
that he would support the sub-
poenaing of "activist" judges
forcing them to appear before
Congress to explain their deci-
sions. Wow!
Even those of us who are
the least knowledgeable about
the Constitution understand
what violence that does to
the balance of power that is
an integral part of the way
we govern at the federal
level. That three-way power
split among the executive,
legislative and judicial arms
has prevented this country's
democracy from disappearing
beneath an avalanche of des-
potism on more than one occa-
sion, including Roosevelt's ill-
conceived scheme, and during
the early days of the Republic
when political chaos abound-
ed. Much like today, I fear.
Gingrich's justification for
this attack on the judiciary was
Thomas Jefferson's abolition of
several judicial districts during


LETTERS

Dan K.Thomasson

his presidency. It was a time of
shakedown for the new republic
and the courts were at the cen-
ter of reshaping it to fit both the
needs of the baby nation and
the politics 6f governing.
The judiciary itself often
faced political attacks and
efforts from the White House
to manipulate it. That seems
hardly the case today and
scholars are quick to point
out that the Constitution's
separation of the branches
is well established. When
Jefferson tried to rid himself of
a Supreme Court justice, the
House went along, impeach-
ing him, but the Senate to its
credit and Jefferson's chagrin
- refused to convict him.
Few of us are always happy
about the rulings from the fed-
eral bench from the high court
to the district courts. There
obviously are times when some
judges seem to be writing law
rather than passing judgment
on it. But as a whole, the judi-
ciary has done a superb job of
helping us keep our equilibrium
on all aspects of American
life. Congress frequently has
changed the shape, giving
conservatives the upper hand
sometimes and liberals the next
through the confirmation pro-
cess.
Presidents frequently have
been fooled by those named
who don't seem to fit the
chief executive's philosophy.
Democrat John F Kennedy can
be credited, for instance, with
naming one of the more conser-


vative justices of the last half of
the 20th century, Byron White
of Colorado. Republican Dwight
Eisenhower was responsible
for the very liberal Earl Warren
court and for the appoint-
ment of a dozen activist jurists
whose civil rights decisions
helped bring true meaning to
the promise of equality in the
Constitution.
Gingrich seems always to
believe he is the smartest man
in the room and as such can
say anything he pleases. Given
an opportunity to pull back
frot~his attack dtrth~ tdiciary
recently he refused to do so.
What he is feeding is the appar-
ent intention of conservative
Republicans not to confirm
lower court appointments by
President Barack Obama. Part
of that stems from ideological
differences over a number of
social issues including abortion,
guns, prayer in schools, conser-
vation, health care and on and
on.
Judges should not be
immune from criticism. Their
opinions should be as open
to examination as any other
political activity. That's not the
point here. When a candidate
condemns the system and
threatens to alter it drastically
voters should seriously exam-
ine his motives and demand
explanation. It is difficult,
beyond appealing to a narrow
political base, to see exactly
what he hopes to gain with
this line,of rhetoric.
In the 1890s, a U.S. senator
from South Carolina known as
Pitchfork Ben Tillman threat-
ened to plunge a pitchfork into
the rump of President Grover
Cleveland. Gingrich reminds me
of him.

TO THE EDITOR


Work together for water solutions


To the Editor:
I attended the Nov, 29 work-
shop in Lake City regarding the
water resource issues in north
Florida. It was a passionate dem-
onstration of how democracy in
America is supposed to work,
and I have taken the concerns
to heart.
As executive director of
the St. Johns River Water
Management District, I pledge
my full support of active and
meaningful scientific research
to understand how to best reme-
diate declining ground water
levels in the area. The St. Johns
River and Suwannee River water
management districts will work


cooperatively and expeditiously
on these issues.
In September 2011, the
two districts and Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) entered into
an agreement that formalizes
the coordination of water supply
permitting and planning. This
agreement will ensure resource
protection and fairness between
agencies. We are working now
1 on our plans for regional mod-
eling, sharing data, improving
communication in areas where
District-issued permits and plan-
ning strategies could impact one
another.
Input from the local work
groups and stakeholders is


critical to this collaborative
process. The process must be
inclusive, candid and based
on sound science. We will
seek public involvement and
constructive dialogue between
water management districts,
DEP, concerned residents, and
our elected leaders.
With all of us working togeth-
er, I am confident that we can
figure out the most effective
ways to address these chal-
lenges.
Sincerely,
Hans G. Tanzler III
Executive Director,
St. Johns River Water
Management District

Things I


won't do


in 2012

Things I resolve not
to do in 2012:
Believe every-
thing our new GPS
says. We bought
a new GPS device after our
former navigator wanted more
than a hundred dollars for
an update, probably because
some new roads have been
built in Ft Wayne, Ind. Well,
the new system is cheaper and
isn't quite as sophisticated.
For example, it doesn't know
the word recalculatingg" and
can't pronounce certain words
like "boulevard" and "avenue"
and "road." But if you watch
for obvious errors, taking into
account that you do not detour
through Pascagoula, Miss., to
get to the west side of town,
then the cheapo eventually will
get you in the. general vicin-
ity of your destination. Its last
message: "This is the best I
can do; you're now on your
own."
Judge any "pretty children"
contests. Over the years,
I have judged contests in
writing, wild-game:cooking
.(I judged the fish), patri-
otic speeches, tackiness (the
tackiest-dressed senior citizen
Swon), Christmas decorations
(in Dahlonega, Ga.) and pretty
children. Of those, the only
judging that'll get you killed is
for pretty children. In a weak
moment years ago, I agreed to
judge pretty children in a rural
county where all children are
extraordinarily beautiful. Lord.
knows, another judge and I
did otlr best in judging, but we
never convinced the mother
whose daughter came in sec-
ond place.
Buy socks that come in
bundles of a dozen. I bought
one bundle years ago, thinking,
that 12 pairs of socks for five
dollars was the best purchase
ever. Well, it would've been if
the socks had matched. I had
some that barely covered my
ankles while others covered
the top of my thigh. They were-
not marked "irregular," inci-
dentally, because that was too
nice a word.
Put any stupid things I've
done on YouTube. I don't
know why people do those
things. No, I'm not talking
about performing stupid acts.
Most of us have done them.
I'm talking about putting them
on YouTube so that the whole
world canr marvel at how stu-
pid some people can be. And
those videos, you know, live
forever, which proves there
is no statute of limitations on
stupidity.
Fail to buy my wife a
Mother's Day present A quar-
ter-century ago, I was talking
to a man I considered wiser
than I, mainly because he was
my boss. "What are you get-
ting your wife for Mother's
Day?" I asked. "Nothing," he
replied. "She's not my mother."
You know, I'd never thought of
it that way, I said to myself. So
that year, I didn't buy my wife
a Mother's Day present. My
boss, it turned out, was not as
wise as I thought.
Mix up my date for a colo-
noscopy with a date to speak
to the Royston Rotary Club. I
did that, by the way, and ended
up missing both dates. It's a
long story, so I'll give you the
Reader's Digest version: Both
events were rescheduled, but
it was the Rotarians who got
the short end of the stick.

Since 1878 the Morgan Dollar has
come to represent the spirit of the
American West. With the end of
the civil war, many war veterans trav-
eled west in the hope of striking it rich
prospecting for gold and silver. Much
of the silver used for these dollar-sized
coins came from the rich western silver
mines, including the legendary Com-
stock Lode near Virginia City, Nevada.
Morgan Dollars were struck at the main
mint in Philadelphia, as well as at the
branch mints of New Orleans, Denver,
San Francisco and Carson City. These
large beautiful coins contain almost a
full ounce of silver (.77344 troy ounce)
and became a source of wealth during
America's expansion westward.
Production was suspended under a
provision of the Pittman Act of 1918, in
which over 270 million Morgan dollars
were melted down for their silver value.
More recently, some Morgan Dollars
have been valued as high as $500,000
by coin investors.

Eastern Numismatics, is authorized to
offer these newly discovered Morgan
Dollars to the Public in an open sale.

Submitted

A local tuba player is looking to be
Tampa-bound next month in order
to participate in the 2012 Florida
Music Educators Association All-
State Concert Series.
Colby Hollingsworth, a 10th grad-
er at Columbia High School, was
selected to play in the All-State High
School Honors Band.
"This is quite an honor since the last
high school member from CHS was
selected in 1996," Colby said.
This young musician was selected
also back in 2010 for the "Middle
School Allstate Honor Band." Colby
said "This was a great opportunity
and can't wait to go again. It influ-
enced my musical talents and had a


great effect on me. I learned a lot."
Colby has had many honors,
Besides being a participant in the
"Middle School Allstate Honor Band"
(as 4th chair), Colby participated in:
Solo & Ensemble at the District
Level in 7th and 9th grades, earning
a Superior rating. And in 8th grade

HAGARTHE HORRIBLE


DEAR ABBY


Family of sex offender urged

to act cautiously at holidays


DEAR ABBY: As a clini-
cal psychologist, I believe
your advice to "Protective
Mom in the Midwest"
(Oct. 26) was oversimpli-
fied. You told her she was
right in not permitting
her husband's brother, a
registered sex offender, to
visit the family during the
holidays. She didn't want
her 10-year-old daughter
around him.
You have made the
common mistake of see-
ing everyone who car-
ries the "registered sex
offender" label as alike.
They are no more alike
than are people who drink'
too much. Some alcohol-
ics get drunk, angry and
violent, but most do not.
Some sex offenders act
like Ted Bundy, but most
do not. Some are guilty
only of having a younger
girlfriend.
Many do not directly
injure anyone because
they only download illegal
sexual images. Some do
not use force, threats or
physical violence. I do not
minimize what they do.
They all have a mental
illness and/or addiction
and need intervention and
treatment.
Mom and her husband
should talk to the brother
about what he did and
what kind of rehabilitation
has occurred. They can
then make a better deci-
sion about a visit and what
safety measures might
be appropriate. DR.


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearobby.com
WILLIAM S. IN MIAMI
DEAR DR. S.: Your
point about lumping all
sex offenders together is
well-stated. Another read-
er pointed out that some-
thing like urinating out-
doors could result in this
classification. However,
most readers agree with
me that the safety of the
10-year-old must be the
primary concern. Their
comments:
DEAR ABBY: Stand
your ground, "Protective
Mom"! As a victim of
abuse, I can tell you that
the abuser is sick. She
should not leave it up to
her daughter to find .out if
the uncle could still be a
predator.
My stepfather's abuse
30 years ago was never
reported to the police. He
supposedly got "counsel-
ing" and was "a changed
man." Well, he's currently
serving prison time for
having molested his grand-
daughter a year and a
half ago. KNOWS THE
SCORE IN ANAHEIM,
CALIE.
DEAR ABBY: If Mom
allows Jake in the house,

F ET COORMIC



FOR BETTER OR WORSE


ARIES (March 21-April
19): Take time to reevalu-
ate your plans for the
upcoming year. A chance
to enhance your love life is
evident if you network and
socialize with people you
can learn or benefit from.
Your charm will capture
attention. Live, love and
laugh. ****
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Don't sit still when
you should be checking
out opportunities or look-
ing into a skill you want to
learn in order to advance
in the new year. Do your
research now and be pre-
pared to make a life-chang-
ing move. **
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Get your game plan
up and running. It may
be a quiet workweek, but
what you do now in terms
of looking for future oppor-
tunities will pay off. Love
is in the stars, and getting
together with someone
you fancy will pay off.

CANCER (June 21-July
22): You'll be terppted to
follow someone who talks
a good talk. Before you
make a decision that can
alter your life, make sure
that the people affected by
your decision will give you
their blessing. A mistake
will cause a ruckus. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Downtime will be good for

you, as long as you spend
it doing something that
challenges you physically
or allows you to enjoy the
company of someone spe-
cial. Socializing, visiting
and travel will build your
confidence and do you
good. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Put some effort into
self-improvement and
doing things that will
broaden your awareness.
What you offer others will
show your intent and your
responsibility to the people
you care about most.
Travel plans should be
part of your agenda. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct
22): Stick close to home
and nurture relation-
ships with people who
are important to you.
Domestic improvements
will add to your comfort
and lessen your stress.
Romance is highlighted.
Look for innovative ways
to improve your love life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): Be careful what you
say to your lover, a friend
or a relative. You will be
taken seriously and may
end up being stuck in a no-
win situation if you make
a frivolous promise while


trying to be a nice person.
**
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-
Dec. 21): You need to burn
energy, but don't take risks
or sign up to do things
that could become danger-
ous. Spend time on self-
improvement, but don't
overspend in the process.
A change is good, but it
needs to be made within.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19): Loosen up and
let your mind wander.
Innovative ideas will come
when you relax and forget
about money, contracts
and your professional situ-
ation. An old acquaintance
will be a healthy reminder
of what you should do.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Secretive action
will make the best surprise
and bring you the most
support when you finally
divulge your plans. Love is
in the stars, and a display
of emotion will lead to a
better understanding of
personal goals. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Review your personal
and business partnerships
and reevaluate whether you
are dealing with people who
have something to offer.
It's time to start fresh by
stepping away from anyone
taking advantage of your
generosity. ***

a former child protec-

homes to inform parents
of this. I also had to keep
my own daughter away

DEAR ABBY: All
children should be edu-
cated' as early as they can
understand about issues
of trust. Mom will have
to watch her daughter
every second Jake is
around, but she shouldn't
deny her husband the
right to have his family
come for the holidays.
Perhaps he could arrange
for his brother to stay
at a hotel. Mom can't be
with her child 24/7, so
kids need to know how
to handle adults who are
dangerous. GLORIA IN

Public lines up for new low-cost




appliance that slashes heat bills


Amish craftsmen vow to keep up with rush for brand-new Hybrid-ThermicT 'Miracle Heater' that

uses about the same energy as a coffee maker per hour, so just plug it in and never be cold again


BY: SAMUEL A. JAMES
Universal Media Syndicate
(UMS) Everyone hates high heat
bills. But we're all sick and tired of
turning the thermostat down and
freezing our buns off.
That's why Sears knew they had a
home-run on their hands with the first-
ever low-cost appliance with Hybrid-
Thermic heat technology. And no
other heater anywhere has it.
The brand-new portable L.E.D. Heat
Surge HT sips so little energy, you can
run it for a full 12-hour day or night for
just about a buck.
This modern marvel, hailed as the
zone heating 'Miracle Heater,' caused
such a frenzy at Sears stores, one
shopper refused to leave until she got
one. Since there were none in stock,
store managers were forced to hand
over the store's only floor model,
against store policy.
So today, immediate action is being
taken to give more people, more ways
to get them.
Beginning at 8:30 a.m., today's read-
ers are allowed to phone in or snag
one online. Heat Surge even posted a
2-Day Double Coupon which has been
reprinted on this page for today's
readers to use.
By using this coupon, everyone
who calls is being rewarded with
$227. That makes this remarkable
new home appliance a real steal
at just $299. Since this is a Double
Coupon Deal, it not only gives you
an extraordinary discount, but also
entitles you to free shipping and
handling, totaling $227 off. So now
everyone has a fair shot at getting
one.
"Folks are saving money every-
where by zone heating with the new
Heat Surge HT," said Kris Rumel,
the company's analyst tracking the
impact Heat Surge is having on con-
sumer heat bills.
This all started when Sears
wanted the world-famous 'Amish
Miracle Heater' that everyone was
asking for.
The shy but now famous Amish
craftsman said Sears made the most
sense. "I'd reckon they're the oldest
and most trusted in the country," one
of the Amish craftsmen known as
Melvin said.
"We've been saving folks money, big
money. And we know it because we're
hearing' about it," he said.
"They know about our quality. No
particle board, just real wood. Fully-
assembled cabinets by our hands and
we're making them right here in the
good ole USA," Melvin said.
Director of Technology David
Martin explained, "The Heat
Surge HT is a revolutionary appli-
ance that can easily roll from room
to room. But we didn't want it to look
like some metal box that just sits
there. So we turned to our Amish
craftsmen and now each one is made
to look like a sleek, slim fireplace that
has no real flames."
"The peaceful flicker of the
'Fireless Flame' is so beautiful,
everyone thinks it's real, but it's
totally safe to the touch. All you do is
just plug it in," Martin said.
People from Maine to Mississippi
and even Florida and Arizona are
flocking to get them because they are
finally able to give their central heat a
rest during this long, frigid winter.
According to the avalanche of con-
sumer reviews, people absolutely
swear by them, repeatedly saying, "it
saves money," "looks beautiful," and
"keeps you warm head to toe, floor to
ceiling." And the word is getting out.
That's why people are clamoring to
get them.
But Martin said right now the real
problem is making sure the Amish
craftsmen can keep up with the lin-
gering winter rush.
That's why the Double Coupon
expires in two days.
So for readers hoping to get the new
Heat Surge for themselves and take
care of gifts for others, there is good
news.
You can use the 2-Day Double
Coupon more than once. But there is
a catch. You can only get away with
it for the next two days from the
date of today's publication by call-
ing the National Appliance Center at
1-800-618-8510.
Then, when it arrives, you'll be
rushing to turn down that thermo-
stat. Just plug it in, watch your heat
bills hit rock bottom, and never be
cold again. U


N GOTTA HAVE ONE: People are flocking to Sears stores everywhere to get the brand-new Heat Surge HT. An eager crowd remained respectful as Jonas Miller
stages a promotional delivery event. "I heard so much about the Amish Miracle Heater but couldn't find where to get one," an excited Mary Straughn said. That's
why a National Appliance Hotline has been set up for today's readers who can't rush out to get one. Readers who call the Hotline at 1-800-618-8510 will get free
delivery with an extraordinary 2-Day Double Coupon that has been reprinted below.

SAFE: The beautiful L.E.D. Fireles. Flame on the new Heat Surge HT is so stun- 0 BLANKET FREE COMFORT: "We just couldn't take another winter.of al-
ning, everyone thinks it's real, but it's actually safe to the touch. It's so safe, it's ways being cold. And we also got one for the kids to help them with their
where the kids will play & the pets will sleep. heat bills," Julia White said.


How It Works: You get 740 of bone-soothing room heat even when the

home thermostat is turned down to 59 with the first-ever Heat Surge HT
This is the revolutionary Heat Surge HT, the first-ever appliance with Hybrid-ThermicTm heat technology.
Hybrid-Thermic heat technology is an engineering genius so advanced, it actually uses a micro-furnace
- from the Coast of China and a thermal heat exchanger to perform its miracles. The thermal heat exchanger
acts like the rays of the sun to heat you, the kids, the pets and everything else. The micro-furnace. then
:. heats all the surrounding air. Together, this Hybrid-Thermic heat technology warms both you and the air
S- around you, taking care of all the cold spots. In fact, it actually produces bone-soothing heat to help you
feel good.


'6 MODERN MARVEL: The revolutionary
Heat Surge HT micro-furnace fits in any room
because it's packed inside a small Amish-built
cabinet that measures just 25" high, 18" wide,
and 12" deep.

A Consumer Best Buy


This modern marvel uses L.E.D. technology and just a trickle of electricity and saves you money based
on a U.S. average that says it uses only about 94 of electricity an hour on the standard setting, yet it pro-
duces up to an amazing 4,606 British Thermal Units (BTU's) on the high setting. But here's the big surprise.
It's not just a metal box that be-
Home thermostat set at 590 longs in a basement. The Heat
Surge HT is a showpiece in any
room. That's because it has the
ambiance of a real fireplace, but
it has no real flames. Its Fireless
S.Flame technology makes it safe
to the touch.
The portable Heat Surge HT
Sf u comes installed in a genuine
Amish-built wood cabinet made
in the heartland of Ohio. They are
S hand-rubbed, stained, and var-
nished. When it arrives, all you
S do is just plug it in.

9 ZONE HEATING SLASHES HEAT BILLS: Notice how the home thermostat
is turned down to 590 The left shows the Heat Surge Hybrid-Thermic 'Miracle
Heater'blanketing the whole-room with 740 of warmth.
An avalanche of unsolicited consumer reviews gives the company the reason to boast an overwhelming
Consumer 'Best Buy' on the HeatReport.com website. Consumers should be aware of the fakes out there.
This Hybrid-Thermic 'Miracle Heater' can never be found at Wal-Mart@, not at Lowe's, not at Home Depot, and


none of the Club Stores. "Accept no imitations. If it does not have the Heat Surge name on it, it is not real Amish and it is not Hybrid-ThermicTM. I repeat, if it does
not have the Heat Surge name on'it, you are getting ripped off," said Heat Surge Chief Compliance Officer, Bob Knowles. The Heat Surge has earned the coveted
Underwriters Laboratories certification and is protected by a limited full year replacement or money back warranty and 30-day Satisfaction Guarantee.
