JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, (center) D-Fla., met with a contingent of Lake City/Columbia County Chamber of Commerce offi-
cials Wednesday at the Holiday Inn & Suites while attending a public officials luncheon in Lake City. Nelson met with
Chamber Government Relations Chairman Matt Vann (from left), Chamber President Todd Wilson, publisher of the Lake
City Reporter; Clerk of Courts DeWitt Cason, Chamber President-elect Joel Foreman and Chamber Treasurer John
Kuykendall. The Chamber delegation discussed small business concerns about the status of federal payroll tax reductions
and the impact of the federal healthcare mandate on small businesses.




Senator takes up



Purple Heart quest



Bill Nelson believes Fort White couple's son, who died in an
accident in Kosovo under sniper fire, qualifies for the medal.


By GORDON JACKSON
gjackson@lakecityreporter.com
Sen. Bill Nelson has asked the
Department of Defense to review
the circumstances surrounding Pfc.
Ben McGill's 1999 death in Kosovo
to determine if he is eligible for a
Purple Heart medal.
Nelson, D-Fla., told the Reporter
during a visit to Lake City on
Wednesday that he supports the
request by the soldier's parents,
Fred and Edie McGill, of Fort White,
who wrote.him a letter in December
asking for his help.
Ben McGill, 20, died trying to save
fellow soldiers in an armored person-
nel carrier who were under sniper
fire. He was electrocuted when he
grabbed an antenna on the carrier
that was about to touch a power
line.
He was given the Soldier's Medal
posthumously but his parents believe
their son deserves the Pbrple Heart
because he died during a combat
situation trying to protect fellow
troops.
Soldiers who served with Ben
McGill also support his parents'
quest for their son to get one final


recognition for sacrificing his life foi-
his nation.
"We have asked the Department
of Defense to reconsider the deter-
mination," Nelson said.
During his speech at the Holiday
Inn, Nelson met with elected and
appointed officials and business lead-
ers to discuss issues.
He said the decision to send a team
of Navy SEALS to capture Osama bin
Laden was a "gutsy call" because his
whereabouts was based on circum-
stantial evidence.
Nelson, who serves on the Senate's
armed services and intelligence
committees, said people would be
surprised if they knew how many
terrorist groups have been thwarted
from attacking the United States.
He predicted continued jobs
growth nationwide, unless some-
thing unexpected like another finan-
cial crisis in Europe or a terrorist
attack was to occur.
'This trend [of economic improve-
ment] will continue unless we get
some interruption," he said. "But
overall, there is good news."
He defended the federal govern-
ment's economic stimulus program,
saying it helped fund education,
municipal construction projects


and the disadvantaged. Locally, the
money is paying for the construction
of a Broadband Internet service in
the region, he said.
Now it's up to the states to help
correct some of their economic chal-
lenges with less federal help.
"The stimulus bill is over," he
said.
He defended the often criticized
health care bill, saying the old health
care rules were "going to bankrupt
us."
Medicare was going to go broke
because there was no incentive for
health providers to control costs.
'The senior wasn't getting the best
health care," he said. "In Florida, as
a result of new Medicare enrollment,
we have more participants, lower
costs and better care."
There is a large segment of people
who will also benefit from the health
care legislation.
"We have 45 million people with-
out health insurance," he said. "They
go to emergency rooms when they
get sick and the rest of us pay. Let
private companies compete for cus-
tomers."
He predicted all or most of the
health care bill will be upheld by the

local pair in jail


4 Ibs. of marijuana
shipped from Calif.
to Lake City address.
By LAURA HAMPSON
Ihampson@lakecityreporter. com
A cross-country delivery
of more than four pounds
of marijuana landed two
Columbia County residents
in jail Tuesday, say police.
Grace Lynne Willis,
23, and Troylon Devon
Menefee, 22, were arrested
for possession of more than
20 grams of cannabis and
possession of drug para-
phernalia, according to a
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office press release.
Authorities in Columbia
County were alerted by
other law enforcement
sources that a package
containing a large amount
of marijuana was being
shipped to 219 S.E. Hanover
St., Apt. 2 in Lake City from
California.
The Columbia County
Multi Jurisdictional Task
Force, working with the
delivery company, was able
to intercept the package in
the county. A K-9 officer
alerted that the package
contained drugs, enabling
officers to get a search war-
rant for the apartment when


Menefee Willis
the package was delivered.
Police seized 4.5 pounds
of marijuana, worth an
estimated $10,000 on the
street
Willis, of 181 S.E. Custer
Way, was released on
$36,000 bond and Menefee,
of 219 S.E. Hanover St.
Apt 2, was held on $42,000
bond.
Transferring drugs
through the mail is not com-
mon, but it does happen,
said Sgt. Edward Seifert,
information officer for the
sheriff's office. Working
with delivery companies
and. other law enforcement
agencies alerts police to the
packages, he said.
The Columbia County
Multi Jurisdictional Task
Force consists of detectives

The district is nearing the completion
of this phase of the project, with maps
for Bradford and Levy counties entering
the final stages of completion. Northwest
Florida Water Management District is
developing the DFIRMs for Jefferson
County.
In the Risk MAP phase of the project,
the district will assist FEMA with obtaining
additional and more precise information
about flood risks to better assess flood haz-
ards. For instance, whereas the first phase
of the project identified floodplain boundar-
ies, the second phase will specify the depth
of flooding in those flood hazard areas.
The district will use part of the FEMA
grant to obtain data through the use of
light detection and ranging, a data-collec-
tion method that provides more detailed

"Having more precise data will allow
us to better identify, assess, and mitigate
flood risks," said James Link, the district's
FEMA program manager. "This will assist
our communities by helping to prevent loss
of life and property."
These programs are part of FEMA's
plan to provide updated flood hazard data
to identify flood risks for flood insurance
and development purposes. To learn more

Fla. secretary of state

resigning after primary


BY GARY FINEOUT
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -
Florida's elections chief is resign-
ing from his job after the state's
Jan. 31 presidential primary.
Secretary of State Kurt
Browning told Gov. Rick Scott
on Wednesday that he wants to
go back to his home in Pasco
County. Browning was the elec-
tions supervisor for that county
for 26 years.
"It's stressful every Sunday
afternoon when you have to
load up the car and head north,"
Browning said.
Browning, 53, says he has no
immediate plans, although he-
says he's considering running for
Pasco County school superinten-
dent His wife works as a school
nurse for the district. His last day
on the job will be Feb. 17.
"It's not the reason I'm going
home," he added. "Ifs to be with
my wife, my family and my com-
munity."
Browning was first tapped by
former Gov. Charlie Crist as sec-
retary of state. It marked the
first time that the job was filled
by someone with lengthy experi-
ence in running elections. Florida


voters in 1998 changed the job of
secretary of state from an elected
position to an appointed one.
Browning worked for Crist
until April 2010, but the Scott
administration asked him to
return in January 2011. He was
earning just under $140,000 a
year.
It was during Browning's first
go-round as secretary of state
that Florida ditched touchscreen
voting machines for most vot-
ers and shifted to optical scan
machines that rely on paper bal-
lots.
In his second stint, Browning
has been responsible for defend-
ing a controversial election law
passed last year by state legisla-
tors.
After lawmakers passed the bill
- which put new limits on voter
registration drives and reduced
early voting days Browning
ordered that the law be put in
place in most Florida counties.
That was a departure from the
past when the state had usu-
ally waited before putting new
election laws in place because
five counties in Florida require
preclearance from the U.S.
Department of Justice because
of past discrimination.


House subcommittee passes


insurance reform attempt


BY JAMES L ROSICA
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. A bill
that would force all accident vic-
tims to go to emergency rooms
instead of their family doctor, even
for minor injuries, cleared a House
subcommittee on Wednesday.
The. bill (HB 119) was approved
10-5 by the Florida House Banking
and Insurance Subcommittee. It
aims to cut down the fraud that
is rampant in the state's personal
injury protection, or PIP, cover-
age.
Gov. Rick Scott later came out
forcefully for the measure, saying
he had no problem with its emer-
gency room mandate.
PIP fraud "is costing us a sig-
nificant amount of money every
year," the governor said. Scott
helped start Columbia Hospital
Corporation, which merged with
another company to become the
world's largest health care com-
pany.
Requiring crash victims to be
treated in emergency rooms is"
"one approach ... You know there's
other approaches to license pro-


viders and all sorts of things," he
said. "(But) I think that bill is a
good bill and I'm very supportive
of it"
The proposed law requires
those hurt in a wreck to go to a
hospital emergency room or hos-
pital-owned walk-in clinic within 72
hours for PIP coverage to kick in.
The bill's critics warned that it
would make people suffer long
waits in understaffed, overcrowd-
ed emergency rooms, and would
prevent them from seeing doctors
or other health care providers who
already know their health condi-
tion.
But Rep. Jim Boyd, the
Bradenton Republican sponsor-
ing the bill, explained that crash
victims should first be treated in
hospitals rather than pain clinics,
for instance.
*As to the 72-hour limit, he said
people injured in a crash shouldn't
be allowed to "just wander in (for
treatment) at some point in the
future." He was, however, willing
to lengthen that treatment limit to
somewhere between 72 hours and
14 days.
PIP fraud "is a tax on every car


driver in Florida," he told the sub-
committee. "It's time to put money
back in constituents' pockets."
Lawmakers passed PIP cover-
age in 1972 to ensure that anyone
hurt in an automobile wreck could
quickly get money to treat their
injuries.
The legislation provided that a
driver's insurance company pay
up tp $10,000 to cover medical
bills and lost wages after an acci-
dent no matter who is at fault.
All Florida drivers are required to
carry no-fault insurance.
But over the years, fraudsters
have turned Florida into the top
state for staged accidents, par-
ticularly in the Miami-Dade and
Tampa areas. Some racketeers
have even turned it into a profit
center, reports show.
The Insurance Information
Institute predicted that PIP fraud
could approach $1 billion in the
state this year, and those costs are
passed on to customers through
increased premiums. In some sec-
tions of South Florida and the
Tampa Bay area, that can mean
hundreds of extra dollars per
year.


No injuries in 3-vehicle crash


SENATOR: Nelson takes up quest

Bernius Long of Lake City looks inside his car after a three-vehicle crash Wednesday at
Southeast Baya Drive and Southeast Country. ClubRoad. The wreck caused a total of about
$12,500 worth of damage. No one was injured, according to Florida Highway Patrol reports.

OPINION


Florida's


gambling


problem

State Sen. Ellyn
Bogdanoff called it. She
said her destination
casino bill would look
as if "a dog chewed on
it" after going through its first
legislative committee.
It remains a work in progress that
deserves a productive resolution.
Florida needs the regulations
envisioned in SB 710. Gambling
is here to stay in the Sunshine
State, but officials don't have
the tools to prevent its precipi-
tous spread.
It's unfortunate that the
need for regulations has been
eclipsed by debate over new,
mega-casinos. Still, Bogdanoff's
bill does promise to curb a lot
of predatory gambling.
The Fort Lauderdale
Republican's measure would
create a statewide gambling
commission, shut the door on
the largely unregulated Internet
cafes in the state, bar any new
racetrack or jai-alai frontons
from opening after July aid
rescind more than a dozen dor-
mant pari-mutuel permits.
The revised bill also would
address a flaw in the original
legislation the inequity of
letting new mega-casinos pay
a lower tax rate than existing
pari-mutuels. But it would do
so by cutting nearly in half the
tax rate for pari-mutuels. That's
backward. The bill should raise
its ridiculously low 10 percent
tax rate on casinos instead of
slash the rate for pari-mutuels.
While Bogdanoff and oth-
ers have said raising revenue
shouldn't be a goal of legalizing
casinos, we couldn't disagree
more. Lawmakers can't afford
to overlook any good opportuni-
ties to reduce the state's chronic
budget deficits and spare more
cuts in basic services.
The revised bill also would
let pari-mutuels have slots. This
could clear the way for a sig-
nificant expansion in gambling
- including in central Florida,
where it would clash with the
region's family-friendly brand.
The controversy surround-
ing destination-resort gambling
shouldn't overshadow the fact
that Florida still has a problem
with gambling, and very few
initiatives that would seriously
rein in its spread....

ow that real vot-
ers in Iowa have
actually made real
choices, two things
are increasingly
clear about the Republican
race. Mitt Romney has the
organization, money and ruth-
lessness to win the nomination.
He also has alienated Hispanic
voters and failed to generate
enough electricity to light up
even an energy-saving bulb.
Bottom line: Both sides have
a plausible path to victory in
November. And the outlook for
President Obama is a bit bright-
er than it was six months ago.
Romney clearly learned
something at Harvard Business
School about the value of long-
term planning. Using Obama's
campaign as a model, he's
figured out that Iowa and New
Hampshire get far more atten-
tion than they deserve. By con-
testing primaries all over the
country and building a strong
base of delegates, a candidate
can survive short-term set-
backs and still win.
Romney understands this
math. Recent Republican his-
tory is littered with wannabes -
Mike Huckabee, Pat Buchanan,
Pat Robertson who flared
briefly in the early states but
quickly flamed out, suffocated
by a lack of organization and
money. Rick Santorum, despite
his strong showing in Iowa,
seems likely to join that list.
Romney does not.
Team Romney understands
the new landscape reshaped
by recent Supreme Court deci-
sions. Super PACs can now
raise and spend unlimited
amounts of money, as long as
they don't officially consult with
the candidates they're support-
ing. But they don't have to.
Longtime Romney support-
ers, who know exactly what he's
thinking and planning, have set
up Restore Our Future, a group
that swamped Newt Gingrich
under a deluge of negative ads.
Newt even squawked that he


Danger I

n an unusual move,
President Barack Obama
visited the Pentagon
recently to announce
that he will pursue funda-
mental changes in the size and
reach of the U.S. military.
The administration would
shrink military spending by
$487 billion over 10 years.
This would be in addition
to $450 billion in cuts over the
next decade that Congress
agreed to in 2011.
Unless Congress acts, the
military also could face $500
billion more in spending cuts a
year from now.

was being "Romney-boated" a
reference to the vicious "swift
boat" attacks on John Kerry in
2004. Obama can expect the
same treatment.
For all the talk about tea party
power, the Republicans still tend
to pick the most familiar face,
the next in line. The insurgents
who did run from Michele
Bachmann and Herman Cain to
Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich
- turned out to be monu-
mental disappointments. And
Republicans are so desperate to
beat Obama that many of them
are willing to ignore Romney's
spotty conservative credentials.
According to caucus entrance
polls, half the Iowa voters who
thought the most important
quality in a candidate was being
able to win in November picked
Mitt Unemployment remains
Obama's biggest weakness, and
Romney ran strongly among
caucus-goers who tab the
economy as the top issue and
prefer a president with business
experience.
But those advantages can-
not erase Romney's huge
vulnerabilities. He is, to put it
charitably, a bore, a stiff, the
"oh, all right" candidate a
Republican version of Al Gore,
who used to joke that he was
so dull, his Secret Service code
name was "Al Gore." And with
all Romney's millions, he still
won only 25 percent in Iowa,
the same figure as four years
ago and his upper limit in most
national polls,
Arthur Doenecke, a Romney
backer in Iowa, summed up this
passion gap for The New York
Times: "He's just, to me, not a


real person. He has the same
expression on his face, always
looks the same, acts the same.
He's almost robotic in his man-
nerisms. He has no warmth. I
find it difficult to connect. But I
think of who's left and can beat
Obama, he probably has the
best chance."
For all of his rigid self-
control, Romney can make mis-
takes betting Perry $10,000,
calling corporations people,
suggesting that the housing
market should hit rock bottom.
More seriously, he has decided
to demagogue the issue of
immigration byscreaming
"amnesty" whenever an oppo-
nent tries to sound reasonable.
That plays well with primary
voters (the Iowa electorate
was 98 percent white), but
Hispanics are the fastest-
growing group in the country
and could hold the key to many
swing states, from Colorado
and Nevada to New Mexico and
Florida. Obama won two out of
three Latino votes in 2008, and
a recent Pew poll shows him .
winning the same margin over
Romney this time.
Finally, there's Romney's
past, preserved indelibly on
YouTube. His own ad cam-
paign against Gingrich in Iowa
showed that negative commer-
cials can be very effective, and
the Democrats are already pre-
paring a scorched earth strate-
gy that will highlight Romney's
record of closing companies
and firing workers during his
tenure at Bain Capital.
One disgruntled employee,
Randy Johnson, showed up in
Iowa (thanks to the Democrats)
and told reporters that Romney
put "profit before people," adding-
"I think he is out of touch with
the average person." The man
who "Romney-boated" Gingrich
into oblivion is about to get "Bain-
boated" with both barrels.

lurks in military cuts


ineffective programs should
be sweated out of defense just
as they are rooted out of every
other federal bureaucracy.
But what the president pro-
poses sounds like more a differ-
ent level of capacity to respond
to threats to the nation's secu-
rity. ...
Defense Secretary Leon
Panetta said the military still
would be able to respond to
multiple threats simultaneously
... But he went on to say that
"the Army and Marine Corps
will no longer be sized to sup-
port the large-scale, long-term
stability operations that domi-
nated military priorities ...


over the past decade."
What are the American
people to make of this conver-
sational opener? And what does
it telegraph to potential allies
and would be aggressors?
That the United States will no
longer challenge invaders like
the Iraq of Saddam Hussein or
failed states like Afghanistan
that harbor terrorist forces?
If so, it would be a weaken-
ing of national defense, the
federal government's primary
responsibility, and would make
the world a much more danger-
ous place.

GOP's stance

isn't helping

to protect

consumers

S enate Republicans
have been shameless
in their zeal to neuter
the agency created
in the wake of the
2008 financial crisis to protect
consumers from unscrupulous
and misleading lending prac-
tices. Five months after it doors
opened, the agency has no
leader and no muscle.
Earlier this month, a GOP
filibuster blocked confirmation
of President Barack Obama's
nominee to head the new
Consumer Financial Protection
Bureau. And 44 senators insist
they won't vote to approve any-
one for the job until the new
bureau is restructured. But
what they call restructuring is
actually demolition. The bureau
can oversee existing banking
regulations, but until a director
is in place, it can't issue new
rules or regulate non-bank
operations such as mortgage
services and payday lenders.,
These regulations include plain
language on terms for home
loans and for credit cards, as
well as the use of large type for
readability.
Obama used a recess
appointment to install his
nominee, former Ohio Attorney 1
General Richard Cordray, who
is acknowledged by both sides
to be highly qualified. Although 1
lawmakers have left town for
the holidays, the Senate hasn't
officially recessed. Still, the
president employed a seldom-
used parliamentary tactic to
challenge the blocking. That
is an aggressive move by the
White House, but it's the only
way to respond to aggressive
GOP tactics. It's not the best
way to do business, but it's
preferable to the current stale-
mate.
Republicans say they're hold-
ing out for greater transparency
and accountability. Those are
buzzwords meant to cast GOP
obstructionism as good govern-
ment. It's no such thing, and
the public deserves better.

HIGHLIGHTS
IN HISTORY

Today's highlight:
On Jan. 12, 1912, textile
workers at the Everett Mill
in Lawrence, Mass., (most
of them immigrant women)
walked off the job to protest
wage cuts. The "Bread and
Roses Strike," as it came to be
known, spread to other mills in
Lawrence and lasted until the
following March.

On this date:
In 1519, Holy Roman
Emperor Maximilian I died.
In 1773, the first public
museum in America was orga-
nized in Charleston, S.C.
In 1828, the United States
and Mexico signed a Treaty
of Limits defining the bound-
ary between the two countries
to be the same as the one
established by an 1819 treaty
between the U.S. and Spain.
In 1915, the House of
Representatives rejected, 204-
174, a constitutional amend-
ment giving women the right
to vote.
In 1932, Hattie W. Caraway
became the first woman elected
to the U.S. Senate, after serving
out the remainder of the term
of her late husband, Thaddeus.
In 1948, the Supreme Court
ruled that state law schools
could not discriminate against
applicants on the basis of race.
In 1959, Berry Gordy, Jr.

LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY. JANUARY 12. 2012


S It is possible that a
round of binge drinking
could lead to acute
alcohol poisoning.



Drinking

Drinking


In this Tuesday, June 29, 2004 file photo, a bartender serves two mugs of beer at a
tavern in Montpelier, Vt. College-age drinkers average nine drinks when they get drunk,
government health officials said Tuesday. That surprising statistic is part of a new report
highlighting the dangers of binge drinking, which usually means four to five drinks at a
time. Overall, about 1 in 6 U.S. adults surveyed said they had binged on alcohol at least
once in the previous month, though it was more than 1 in 4 for those ages 18 to 34. And
that's likely ap underestimate.

CDC: Young adults down 9 drinks when they get drunk.


BY MIKE STOBBE
Associated Press
ATLANTA College-
age drinkers average nine
drinks when they get drunk,
government health officials
said Tuesday. That surpris-
ing statistic is part of a new
report highlighting the
dangers of binge drinking,
which usually means four to
five drinks at a time.
Overall, about 1 in 6 U.S.
adults surveyed said they
had binged on alcohol at
least once in the previous
month, though it was more
than 1 in 4 for those ages
18 to 34.
And that's likely an
underestimate: Alcohlbl
sales figures suggestpeople
are buying a lot more alco-
hol than they say they are
consuming. Health officials
estimate that about half of
the beer, wine and liquor
consumed in the United
States by adults each year
is downed during binge
drinking.
"I know this sounds
aoouiinding, 'but I think
the numbers we're report-
ing are really an underes-
timate," said Dr. Robert
Brewer, who leads the alco-
hol program at the Centers
for Disease Control and
Prevention.


The CDC report is based
on telephone surveys last
year of more than 450,000
adults. They were asked
about their alcohol drinking
in the past month, including
the largest number of drinks
they had at one time.
Binge drinking is gener-
ally defined as four drinks
for women and five for men
in a period of a few hours.
Binge drinkers ages 18 to
24 reported nine drinks, or
one more than the national
average of eight drinks..
But those numbers are
likely averages for all epi-
sodes of binge drinking,
Brewer said, citing other
studies.
The number of drinks per
binge went down with age,
to less than six for those
ages 65 and older.
Binge drinking may be
considered socially. accept-
able to many, a fun night
out at the bar. And many
don't see it as a sign of a
serious drinking problem.
Indeed, experts say fewer
than 20 percent of binge
drinkers would be medical-
ly diagnosed as alcoholics.
But health officials say
binge drinking accounts for
more than 40,000 deaths
each year. It contributes to
problems like violence and
drunk-driving accidents


and longer-term issues like
cancer, heart disease and
liver failure.
It is possible that a round
of binge drinking could lead
to acute alcohol poisoning.
But how many drinks at
one sitting could kill you
depends on many factors,
including how big you are,
what you consumed and
how quickly you did it.
Other findings of the
report:
Binge drinking contin-
ues to be most common
in men, people who have
been to college, and those
with incomes of $75,000 or
more.
Only about 4 percent of
people 65 and older binge
drink, far fewer than adults
in other age groups. But
they do it more often five
times a month, on average.
Younger adults average
closer to four episodes per
month.
The upper Midwest
continues to report the
highest prevalence of binge
drinking. Wisconsin topped
the list in 2010 with nearly
26 percent of adults saying
they had at least one binge
drinking episode in the pre-
vious month. West Virginia,
at just under 11i percent,
was at the other end of the
spectrum.


Homicide drops off U.S. list

of nation's top causes of death


BY MIKE STOBBE
Associated Press
ATLANTA For the first.
time in almost half a cen-
tury, homicide has fallen off
the list of the nation's top 15
causes of death, bumped by
a lung illness that often devel-
ops in elderly people who
have choked on their food.
The 2010 list, released by
the government.Wednesday,
reflects at least two major
trends: Murders are down,
and deaths from certain
diseases are on the rise as
the population ages, health
authorities said.
Homicide was overtaken
at No. 15 by pneumonitis,
seen mainly in people 75 and
older. It happens when food
or vomit goes down the wind-
pipe and causes deadly dam-
age to the lungs.
This is the first time since
1965 that homicide failed
to make the list, according
to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention.
The CDC's latest
annual report on deaths
contained several nuggets


of good news:
M The infant mortality rate
dropped to an all-time low of
6.14 deaths per 1,000 births
in 2010. It was 6.39 the year
before.
U.S. life expectancy for a
child born in 2010 was about
78 years and 8 months, up
about a little more than one
month from life expectancy
for 2009.
Heart disease and can-
cer remain the top killers,
accounting for nearly half the
nation's more than 2.4 million
deaths in 2010. But the death
rates from them continued to
decline.
M Death rates for five other
leading causes of death also
dropped in 2010, including
stroke, chronic lower respira-
tory diseases, accidents, flu/
pneumonia and blood infec-
tions.
But death rates increased
for Alzheimer's disease,
which is the nation's sixth-
leading killer, kidney disease
(No. 8), chronic liver dis-
ease and cirrhosis (No. 12),
Parkinson's disease (No. 14)
and pneumonitis.

II General Eye Care & Surgery


. 4 -
OMAN~I


The report is drawn from
a review of at least 98 percent
of the death certificates filed
in the U.S. in 2010.
The government has
been keeping a list of the
top causes of death since
1949. Homicide has histori-
cally ranked fairly low. It was
as high as 10th in 1989 and
in 1991 through 1993, when
the nation saw a surge in
youth homicides related to
the crack epidemic.

Allen prepares

East squad


10 local players
will dress out for
All-Star Game.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
It was a familiar face on
the sideline as Columbia
High head coach Brian
Allen took on the responsi-
bility of coaching the East
for the Columbia Youth
and Lake City Pop Warner
Football Association's 5th
Annual East-West High
School Football All-Star
Game.
With a short week of
work, Allen entered his
third day working with the
East as they prepare for
Saturday's 4 p.m. kickoff at
Memorial Stadium.
Allen will coach 10 local
players from Columbia and
Fort White high schools in
the contest. The players will
be joined by All-Stars from
Baker, Baldwin, Branford,
Chiefland, Dixie, Hamilton,
Lafayette, Madison, Perry,
Suwannee, Taylor, Trenton
and Union County during


that game.
Participating for the
Tigers are Austin Reiter,
Quaysean Monismith,
Darius Williams, Koran
Amerson and Hayden
Lunde.
Fort White will have
Soron Williams, Jonathan
Dupree, Wesley Pitts,
Dalton O'Dell and George
Fulton.
"We're trying to run
the same kind of stuff that
everyone runs, but we're
using a different language,"
Allen said of the complica-
tions of putting in a game
plan on a short week.
'We're not going to do a
ton, but we'll put in a plan
to go out there and have a
good game."
The game dictates that
both teams run a 4-3, some-
thing that Allen has experi-
ence with.
"As a player, I always
played in the 4-3," Allen said.
"With Dennis (Dotson) at
the high school, we moved
to a 3-4. The thing is, you
move your SAM and Mike
and your back in the 4-3, so
it's not that different"

Columbia's Blaine

Courson selected

for All-American

tournament


By.TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia High senior
Blaine Courson will have
a special tune-up for Tiger
baseball tryouts.
Courson has been invited
to play in the 2012 Under
Armour Pre-Season All-
American Tournament.
The tournament is Friday
through Sunday in Tucson,
Ariz.
'We are leaving Thursday
and I'll be back Monday to
try out," said Courson, who
is making the trip with his
mom, Tara Courson, and
grandmother, Terry Hahn.
"It will be a pretty neat
experience. There will be
a lot of good players and
it is a chance to get seen
by pro scouts. It will get
me geared up for the high
school season that is about
to come up."
Courson will be a third-
year varsity players for the
Tigers. He played shortstop
and mostly hit clean-up last
year. Playing second base,
Courson caught the final
out in Columbia's district
championship win in 2010.
Under Armour Pre-
Season All-Americans are
chosen by participation in


a Baseball Factory event
or recommended by a pro
scout. Most players are
Division I prospects, and
Courson said he has been
contacted by some schools.
The games are at the
Kino Sports Complex, for-
mer spring training home of
the Arizona Diamondbacks.
David Wright of the Mets
played in the tournament
"We will play three
games," Courson said.
'There are supposed to be
a lot of first round draft
picks and we will get to play
against them. Most of the
coaches played or coached
in the Major Leagues or
know a lot about baseball."
Courson's baseball edu-
cation began at age 5. He
played Babe Ruth Baseball
until he was 10, then played
on travel ball teams.
While attending a
University of Florida base-
ball camp, Courson met
Stephen Barton of the Gator
Ball Baseball Academy.
"Stephen was a Gator
who played in the College
World Series and was one
of the coaches at the camp,"
Courson said. "He gave me
his card to come hit with

Jags hire Mularkey



as new head coach


By MARK LONG
Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE The
Jacksonville Jaguars target-
ed Mike Mularkey early in
their coaching search.
The Atlanta Falcons'
offensive coordinator has
a relationship with gen-
eral manager Gene Smith.
He has, a son working
for the team as a scout-
ing assistant. And maybe
most important, he has had
recent success mentoring a
young quarterback.
Mularkey becomes the
franchise's third head coach
in 18 years and tasking him
with turning around the
league's worst offense.
"Everybody was ready
for it to be done," tight
end Marcedes Lewis said.
"For me, personally as an
offensive guy, I feel like it's
a good hiire We're going
to get new schemes,, a.new
offense and a fresh start.
We were anxious to know
what direction we were
going to go 'in, ready to
move.on and start our new
quest for a championship."
The team plans to intro-
duce Mularkey at h news
conference Wednesday.
"Mike recognizes the
challenge and opportunity
before all of us, and that's

to make the Jacksonville
Jaguars one of the premier
franchises in the National
Football League, bar none,"
new owner Shahid Khan
said in a statement. "In sim-
ple terms, Mike is aiming
high."
It's unclear whether
Mularkey will call plays in
Jacksonville. He had mixed
results as a play caller in
his previous head-coaching
stint in Buffalo. The Bills
were seventh in the league
in total offense in 2004, but
faded to 24th the following
year. Mularkey went 14-18
before being fired follow-
ing the 2005 season.
He resume also includes
stops in Tampa Bay (1994-
95), Pittsburgh (1996-
2003), Miami (2006-07)
and Atlanta (2008-11). He
served as offensive coordi-
nator for the Steelers (2001-
03)th e Dolphins- (2006)--
and the last four years with
the Falcons'.
Atlanta went 43-21 with
Mularkey calling plays,
and he helped develop
Matt Ryan into one of the
league's top:young talents.
The Jaguars hope he can
do the same with Blaine
Gabbert, who struggled in
his rookie season.
Gabbert completed 50.8

2,214 yards, with 12 touch-
downs and 11 intercep-
Stions. He was sacked 40
times and lost five of his
12 fumbles. His most trou-
bling trait was pocket pres-
ence. The 10th overall pick
often seemed scared under
the slightest pressure and
struggled all season with
his accuracy, especially on
short throws.
Gabbert's problems
prompted many to call
Jacksonville the least-desir-
able destination of the open
NFL jobs.
"Where we were last
year, we can only go up,"
Lewis said.
Even though the Jaguars
had the worst offense in
the league, Smith and Khan
believe they are close to
piecing together a playoff-
caliber roster that features
running back Maurice
Jones-Drew, Lewis and a
defense that ranked sixth
in the NFL despite sever-
al key injuries down the
stretch.
Mularkey will be tasked
with getting it done.
His first job will be lock-
ing down a defensive coor-
dinator.'lThe Jaguars would
like to bring back Mel
Tucker, who interviewed
for the defensive coordina-
tor position in Minnesota.

HAGARTHE HORRIBLE


DEAR ABBY


Woman uninterested in marriage

gets pressure from her family


DEAR ABBY: I am a
very feminine 23-year-
old woman who lives at
home with my father. I am
completely uninterested
in getting married or hav-
ing children now or in the
future. I don't believe it's
the end of the world to be
a woman and not want chil-
dren, but my dad and my
grandmother act as though
I'm abnormal. Dad says he
blames himself for "failing
to raise me right"
He also blames himself
for the fact that I'm not
interested in guys. The
thought of being intimate
with a guy is disgusting
to me. I identify as mostly
asexual, although I have
had passing infatuations
with women. Dad takes
this personally like HE is
responsible for my desires,
or lack thereof. Grandma
is worse. She constantly
makes excuses to my male
friends about how I'm just
"not ready yet" and that
they should be "patient"
Abby, I know nothing
I say will change their
minds, but is there some-
thing I can do to make
them understand they
didn't fail? This is who I
AM. How can I end the
guilt trip and keep the
peace? BORN THIS WAY
IN NORTH CAROLINA
DEAR BORN THIS
WAY: People who have no
sexual feelings are asexual.
People who are attracted to
members of the same sex

are gay, and they, too, are
born that way. It has noth-
ing to do with the way they
are raised.
You cannot live your life
trying to please your father
and grandmother, and you
have nothing to apolo-
gize for. If you need help
explaining why you are
the way you are, contact
PFLAG (Parents, Families
and Friends of Lesbians
and Gays), an organization
that can provide you with
literature that will explain
it to them. You can find
more information at www.
pflag.org.

DEAR ABBY: I'm a 37-
year-old wife and mother
of three. My mother visits
us when she's in town dur-
ing work-related trips, so
it's not like she's around
all day, thank heavens. But
when she's here she con-
stantly corrects my children
(ages 8, 14 and 18) and
instructs my husband and
me how we should spend
our money. She also doesn't
like it when I swear (which I
usually don't do unless she's
around) or mention what I
think of people she has sent


my way who have burned
me.
By the time she leaves
- usually four days I am so
stressed and emotional that
I cry at the drop of a hat
I cannot, nor do I want to,
continue to have her here
when she doesn't respect
my rules. I respect her rules
when I visit her home.
Obviously, there is much
more, but I'm stressed
to the max and nearly at
the point of being done.
Abby, can you give me any
pointers to deal with this?
VISIT OR NOT?
DEAR VISIT OR NOT?:
After you have calmed
down, and before your
mother's next "raid," write
her a letter. Explain that
while you love her, her vis-
its are taking a significant
emotional toll on you. Say
she is welcome as long as
she refrains from correcting
your children because that's
YOUR job. Say also that she
must stop telling you what
to do with your money and
correcting your language
because you're an adult
now. Remind her not to
send any more people your
way, and why. If she can
accept those terms, shell be
welcomed with open arms.
Some people need ground
rules spelled out for them,
and your mother appears to
be one of them.

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-April
19): Expect someone to
confuse you or misrepre-
sent you. You are best to
take control and refrain
from letting anyone speak
on your behalf. You may
have to take on more, but
in the end you will face
less controversy. ***
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): You will fall heir to
valuable information if you
attend a conference or
seminar, or just listen to
what someone with experi-
ence has to say. Your abil-
ity to learn and masterfully
apply what you discover
will lead to advancement.
Love is in the stars.

GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Don't let emotions or
the people you love stand
in your way. You have to
pick your battles wisely
and protect your money
and your status from any-
one trying to damage your
reputation or take your
cash. **
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Talk to close friends
or your partner about
your future plans. Getting
an outside opinion as to
how you should proceed
professionally will give you
greater insight into the
best way to prepare for the
future. Impulsiveness is
the enemy. ****
LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): Time spent working


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

toward a professional goal
w, wll pay off. Don't give in
to someone trying to talk'
you outof finishing what'
you start. Being respon-
sible will make a good
impression on someone
looking for a partner.
Invest in you. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Make plans to attend
an event that will allow
you to expand your inter-
ests and your friendships.

intelligently will attract
someone who wants to
help you develop a project
that can boost your reputa-
tion.***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Spending time with
children or getting togeth-
er with someone you
love will help you form a
closer bond. Taking time
to enhance your image or
to gain greater confidence
is highlighted. Don't let
anyone push you into
something you don't want
to do. ***
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov.
21): Look to the past for
answers that will help you
out now. The experience
you have had with some-
one will give you insight
into how to handle a situ-
ation you currently face.
Don't let emotion cloud


your vision. Act on prin-
ciple. **
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): You'll have
to facethe.music if you
have beien evading issues
tatfkee coming up in
conversation. Covering up
an incident that needs to
be addressed or trying to
avoid hurting someone's
feelings will only make ,
matters worse. ***
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19): You can handle
whatever you are up
against Keeping your plans
a secret until you are ready
to put them into motion

annual Blue-Orange Spring college football game in Boise, Idaho. Florida has hired Pease as its offensive coordinator.



Florida announces Pease


as offensive coordinator


By MARK LONG
Associated Press

GAINESVILLE Brent
Pease is Florida's new
offensive coordinator and
quarterbacks coach.
Pease spent the last six
seasons at Boise State, five
as receivers coach and the
last one as offensive coor-
dinator.
He has 11 years of play-
calling experience, begin-
ning at his alma mater,
Montana (1996-98), and then
Northern Arizona (1999-
2000), Kentucky (2001-02)
and Baylor (2003-05).
Pease said he shares
the same pro-style offen-
sive philosophies as coach
Will Muschamp, who was
scheduled to address the
hire at a news. conference
Wednesday on campus.
"This was a perfect fit,"


Pease said in a statement.
"I want to be multiple in our
offensive formations and
have a balanced attack with
tempo. I firmly believe in
being fundamentally sound
and red-zone efficient. I
want to develop our players
in a pro-style offense that
can help them at the next
level."
Under Pease, the Broncos
averaged 44.2 points and
481.3 yards last season and
won 12 games.
Pease will replace Charlie
Weis, who left last month to
take the head coaching job
at Kansas.
Muschamp hired Weis
in hopes of turning around
one of the program's worst
offenses in the last 25
years. Instead, the Gators
averaged fewer yards and
points than they did in 2010
under former coach Urban


Meyer. Florida ranked
102nd in total offense last
season, averaging 334 yards
a game.
The Gators will rely on
Pease to mentor freshmen
Jacoby Brissett and Jeff
Driskel, the two quarter-
backs expected to compete
for the starting job this
spring.
Pease most recently
worked with Boise State's
Kellen Moore, who became
the first quarterback in the
Football Bowl Subdivision
to win 50 games. Moore
was the first player in
NCAA history to record
four seasons with 3,000
yards of total offense and
3,000 yards passing. And he
became just the sixth quar-
terback in NCAA history
to finish his career with at
least 14,000 yards passing.
Pease's resume also


includes record-setting
receivers Tyler Shoemaker,
Austin Pettis, Titus Young
and Jeremy Childs.
More importantly, Pease
has experience in the
Southeastern Conference.
At Kentucky, Pease
helped turn the Wildcats
into one of the top scor-
ing offenses in the country.
After posting a 2-9 season in
Pease's first year, Kentucky
finished 7-5 in 2002, which
matched its best record
since 1984, and ranked 23rd
nationally and led the SEC
in scoring offense.
Pease coached future
NFL players Artose Pinner
(Detroit Lions) and Jared
Lorenzen (New York
Giants) during his two sea-
sons in Lexington.
Pinner led the SEC in
rushing and finished 13th
nationally.
