CARC not cited in asbestos complaint


Floor tiles removed when
House of Bargains was
closed for remodeling.

By GORDON JACKSON
gjackson@lakecityreporter. corn

A Lake City non-profit organization's thrift shop,
The House of Bargains, was investigated but not
cited for any wrongdoing after a complaint was
filed about the way asbestos floor tile was removed
during renovations last summer.
Brittany Greek, former manager of the thrift
shop who helped oversee the tile removal, said
employees were told to use chisels, hammers,
grinders and scrapers when the store was closed
for remodeling last summer.
Greek said employees, including herself, were
not given masks or respirators even though the
tile was breaking into small pieces and the building
was filled with asbestos dust.
"It was very dusty," Greek said. 'The employees
were tearing up. It got to the point with the removal


of the tile where I couldn't even go in."
Occupational Safety and Health Administration
guidelines for asbestos removal require the use of
masks and breathing equipment, air quality moni-
toring, medical exams within the past 12 months
for employees working with asbestos and posting
warning signs to notify the public about a cleanup
of hazardous material.
None of that was done during the cleanup,
Greek said.
Amber Baughman, former executive director of
CARC Advocates for Citizens with Disabilities,
oversaw operations at the thrift shop, which
generates funds for the non-profit organization.
Baughman told workers to continue removing tile
after they expressed concerns about working with
asbestos without safety equipment or training,
Greek said.
"I said it was not safe," Greek said. "While we
were in the store, she [Baughman] pretty much
told me to ignore it."
Baughman denied the claim, saying no employ-
ees ever complained to her about the working
conditions during the tile removal.
CARC continued on 3A

If Intemet cafes


go, lots of locals

will miss them

Lawmakers divided on whether
to ban or regulate the businesses.

By GORDON JACKSON
gjackson@lakecityreporter. com

Joe Brown dined at The Players Club in Lake City for
the first time last week after he learned the chef from
one of his favorite restaurants, Blue Roof Grill, was now
cooking there.
While he and his wife ate lunch, Brown said an
employee told them about the Internet cafe operating
inside the restaurant.
Brown, who has gone on gambling trips to Nevada,
Mississippi, North Carolina, Florida and other states
said he didn't need an explanation he had a good idea
what was going on.
"We simply went there to eat," he said. "Once we got
our guts full, we decided to try it."
Less than 30 minutes later, Brown said he brought
the computer card he purchased for $20 back to the
cashier to cash out. Brown said he left with $60 more
than when he started playing an electronic slot-machine
type game.
"This is not a whole lot different than Biloxi or Vegas,"
he said. "The bottom line is the house is going to win.
To us, this is nothing but entertainment."
It might be entertainment to people like Brown, but
Internet cafes are gambling casinos in the minds of
state lawmakers who are divided over how to deal with
them.
State sen. Steve Oeirich, R-Cross Creek, who repre-
sents Columbia County in the legislature, introduced
a bill last week banning the cafes. He is 'supported by
Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi, who
believe Internet cafes are illegal. And law enforcement
officials across the state support a bill approved by a
House panel banning the cafes.
But some state lawmakers believe the solution is to
regulate them. Supporters who want to keep the cafes
open say closing them could cost the state 10,000 jobs.
There are at least six Internet cafes listed in online
phone directories for Lake City.

Gingrich gets South Carolina


Former Speaker stuns
Romney, scrambles
Republican race further

By DAVID ESPO and
THOMAS' BEAUMONT
Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. Former House
Speaker Newt Gingrich stormed to an
upset win in the South Carolina pri-
mary Saturday night, dealing a sharp
setback to former front-runner Mitt
Romney and suddenly scrambling the
race for the Republican presidential
nomination.
"Thank you, South Carolina!" a
jubilant Gingrich swiftly tweeted to
his supporters. He appealed for a


flood or donations for the next-up
Jan. 31 primary. "Help me deliver the
knockout punch in Florida. Join our
Moneybomb and donate now," said
his tweet.
Romney was unbowed. He vowed
to contest for every vote in every
state and unleashed a double-barreled
attack on President Barack Obama
and Gingrich simultaneously.
Referring to criticism of his busi-
ness experience, Romney said, "When
my.opponents attack success and free
enterprise, they're not only attacking
me, they're attacking every person
who dreams of a better future. He's
attacking you," he told supporters,
the closest he came to mentioning the
night's primary winner's name.
Already, Romney and a group
that supports him were on the air in
Florida with a significant television


ad campaign, more than $7 million
combined to date. Aides to the former
Massachusetts governor had once
dared hope that Florida would seal his
nomination if South Carolina didn't
first but that strategy appeared to
vanish along with the once-formidable
lead he held in pre-primary polls.
Returns from 30 percent of the
state's precincts showed Gingrich
gaining 41 percent of the vote, to 26
percent for Romney. Santorum had 18
percent and Paul 13.
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick
Santorum and Texas Rep. Ron Paul
trailed badly in the South Carolina
voting.
Exit polling showed Gingrich, the
former House speaker, leading by
a wide margin among the state's

Millikin said he knew Mr. Macatee, of
Lake City, had health problems, but his
death was a surprise.
"He was a true friend of Columbia
County schools," hesaid. "He made per-

musical instruments to county schools
worth tens of thousands of dollars.

Chavez closes Venezuelan consulate in protest


MIAMI At a park in
downtown Miami, alongside
a statue of their country's
liberator, Venezuelans gath-
ered Saturday to protest the
closing of their consulate,
an action they say will cause
major problems for the
thousands of Venezuelans
living in Florida, Georgia
and the Carolinas.
Children, students, wor-
ried parents and elderly
persons held up signs
denouncing Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez's
decision to close the Miami
office following the expul-
sion of Consul General Livia
Acosta Noguera.
"Issuing passports is an
obligation, not a caprice,"
read one sign.
"Chavez: How will I vote
for you now?" read another.
'"The measure they took
is not affecting the United
States, buttheVenezuelans,"
said 23-year-old Mario Di
Giovanni, an economics stu-
dent at Florida International
University who helped orga-
nize the protest
Washington ordered
Acosta to leave the U.S. after
anFBIinvestigationinto alle-
gations she had discussed
a possible cyber-attack on
the U.S. government while
working at the Venezuelan
Embassy in Mexico. The
allegations were detailed
in a documentary aired by

caster Univision and based
on recordings of conversa-
tions with Acosta and other
officials. The documentary

diplomatic missions were
involved.
* Chavez has said there is
no proof Acosta was "going
around carrying out espio-
nage," and that the South
American government
decided on an "administra-
tive closing of the consulate
while we study the deci-
sion." Consulate workers
were then quickly with-
drawn after the foreign min-
istry alleged personnel had
been threatened by exiles
with links to terrorism. The
accused exiles reject the
charges.
Di GiovaJui and others
said the closure will be high-
ly disruptive for the esti-


mated 160,000 Venezuelans
living in Florida, where the
largest community of those
living outside the country is
located. The growing popu-
lation here depends on the
consulate to renew pass-
ports, receive pensions, and
transfer Venezuelan bdli-
vars into dollars to pay U.S.
university- tuition, among
other activities.
'There are a, lot of things
necessary for. the day-to-
day life of Venezuelans here

sulate," Di Giovanni said.
Venezuelans here are
also concerned, 'about"

vote and participate in the
coming presidential elec-
tions; in which Chavez is
seeking another six-year
term. Venezuela's National
Electoral Council has guar-
anteed that Venezuelans
living in Florida will be
able to vote in the Feb. 12
opposition primary, though
protesters said they had
not been given any infor-
mation.
About three-fourths of
the 15,800 Venezuelans in
the United States who voted
in the last presidential elec-
tion did so 'at the Miami
consulate. .
"I want to vote and I don't
'have a place to register,"


said Helen Avila, 32, who
went to the protest carry-
ing her two young children
in a stroller.
Brigitte Jaffe said she's
worried she won't be able
to travel back to visit family
in Venezuela. Her passport
needs to be renewed this
year.
"Ifs very sad not to be
able to go," she said.

Church named minor
basilica by Vatican
PENSACOLA Pensa-
cola's oldest Catholic
church has been desig-
nated one of the nation's
72 minor basilicas
,under an order by Pope
Benedict XVI.
The parish of St.
Michael the Archangel,
which traces is roots to
the 16th century explo-
ration of Northwest
Florida, was canonically
established in 1781. The
current church building,
located at the southwest
corner of Palafox and
Chase streets, was con-
structed in 1886.
"It's a very nice honor
for the area and for the
local church," Monsignor
Luke Hunt said.
The parish submitted
the application to the
Vatican for the basilica
designation in 2003 with
the hopes of receiving it
in time for Pensacola's
450th anniversary cel-
ebration in 2009.
"Unfortunately, it didn't
happen then," Hunt said.


"One of our priests in
Rome asked about it, and
it was immediately acted
on."
Basilica is an honor
bestowed on a church
deemed by the pope
to have historical and
spiritual importance.
Churches are categorized
as either major or minor.
The Catholic Church's
four major basilicas are'
located in Rome.
There are more than
1,500 minor basilicas
around the world, in
addition to those in
the United States. The
closest minor basilica
to St. Michael is the
Cathedral Basilica of the
Immaculate Conception
in Mobile, built in 1850
and designated in 1962.
St. Michael is the fourth
church in Florida to
receive the designation.
"It's a very happy end-
ing to a very long pro-
cess," said the Rev. Peter
McLaughlin, pastor of the
church. "It's wonderful
for the parish and great
for the community."
, McLaughlin said the
process began about
10 years ago, but the
application had to be
resubmitted after the first
application contained an
irregularity.
"Fortunately it was
reviewed and found to
be exceptional," said
McLaughlin, who has led
the church for the past 7
1/2 years.

Film saved West Memphis 3 member


PARK CITY, Utah Peter Jackson
believes Damien Echols would be
dead now if not for a 1996 documen-
tary that cast doubt on the man's guilt
in three child murders.
And Amy Berg, Jackson's colleague
on the Sundance Film Festival pre-
miere "West of Memphis," believes
former Death Row inmate Echols and
two other men might still be in prison
if not for the independent investigation
launched by "The Lord of the Rings"
filmmaker and his wife, Fran Walsh.
There's no better testament at
Sundance to the power of art and art-
ists than "West of Memphis," which
premiered Friday night at Robert
Redford's independent-film showcase.
Sundance films often come from
mavericks who challenge the estab-
lishment "West of Memphis" is a tale
of artists not only challenging the sys-
tem, but also beating it
Jackson, Walsh and Berg said
"West of Memphis" amounts to the
fair trial Echols, Jason Baldwin and
Jessie Misskelley known as the
West Memphis Three never got as
Arkansas teenagers when they were
convicted in 1994.
'"We went into this case believing
that they didn't do it, and the facts
and the evidence we came out with at
the end completely supported that,"
Jackson said in an interview. "So is
the documentary sort of providing
the prosecution's point of view? No,
it's not We're not interested in that
They had their go back in 1994 ... The
documentary, it's the case against the
state, really."
The case was a shocker in the
rural Arkansas community where
8-year-old Cub Scouts Michael Moore,
Steve Branch and Christopher Byers
were slain in 1993. Found naked and
hogtied, two of the boys drowned in a
drainage ditch, while the third bled to
death, his genitals mutilated, evidence
prosecutors used to claim the children
were killed in a satanic ritual.
The defendants were convicted
based in part on a confession
Misskelley later recanted. Misskelley
and Baldwin were sentenced to life in
prison, while Echols was condemned
to death and once came within weeks
of execution.


Damien Echols, left, a producer of the film "West of Memphis," speaks with Mark
Byers at the premiere of the documentary film at the Sundance Film Festival in
Park City, Utah, on Friday.


The case became a cause after
Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky's
documentary "Paradise Lost The
Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills,"
which premiered at Sundance in 1996
and questioned whether justice or
misguided public opinion was served
in the trial. Over the years, celebrities
such as Johnny Depp, Patti Smith,
Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam and Natalie
Maines of the Dixie Chicks joined the
effort to free the men.

2 Live Crew reunites, to go
on tour this summer
PARK CITY, Utah The rap group
that inspired controversy in the early
1990s with songs like "Me So Horny"
is reuniting and hitting the road.
Luther Campbell says 2 Live Crew
is back together and will tour this
summer.
The rapper and producer made
the announcement Saturday at the
Sundance Film Festival, where he is
promoting his appearance in the short
film "The Life and Freaky Times of
Uncle Luke."
Campbell describes the film as "an


art piece" that he did to help young
filmmakers who were inspired by his
hip-hop work.
Campbell says he "just can't wait to
just start practicing" with his old crew.
But don't expect them to be "As Nasty
As They Wanna Be." Campbell says
the group will "perform the songs and
everybody's going to be excited."

K J Author to speak about water issues Tuesday


By GORDON JACKSON
giackson@lakecityreporter. cornm

Public officials and environ-
mental groups have expressed
alarm about increasing water use
in the region in recent months,
but Cynthia Barnett has been
expressing similar concerns for
years.
The former Florida Trend mag-
azine writer and author of two
books on water issues will appear
in Lake City Tuesday to read from
her new book and explain why
everyone in the nation should con-


cerned about water use. Barnett's
presentation is 7 p.m. at the Main
Columbia County Public Library,
308 NW Columbia Ave.
"With our rivers and springs
losing water to Jacksonville
and pollution and algae growth
increasing, it's time for Floridians
to come together to address our
water problems and timely to
have Cynthia Barnett introduce
her ideas about a water ethic
for the state," said Annette Long,
president of Save Our Suwannee,
the non-profit organization spon-
soring the event.
Barnett first raised concerns


about water issues in her book,
"Mirage: Florida and the Vanishing
Water of the Eastern U.S." The
book won the gold medal for best
non-fiction book at the Florida
Book Awards in 2008.
Barnett's new book, "Blue
Revolution: Unmaking America's
Water Crisis," is described in
reviews as the first book to call
for a national water ethic.
Her book urges consumers to
reduce water consumption, rather
than fight to grab more and more.
She also describes mistakes made
by .water managers that include
everything from over tapping


aquifers to relying on solutions
that will bring unintended conse-
quences to future generations.
Barnett will put the state's water
woes into a national and global
context and explain how the best
solution is also the simplest and
least costly a water ethic for
the state.
A book signing will follow
Barnett's presentation, with pro-
ceeds supporting The Blue Path
water awareness programs of
Florida's Eden.
The event is free and open to
the public.'Call (386) 758-2101 for
information.


David Wilson plays the 'Heiress Fortune' game last year at
Silver's Internet Cafe. 'I've done OK in here. I like playing
sweepstakes,' Wilson said. 'I try to win money, but I'm killing
time mostly. They pay out pretty good.'


CAFES: Would be missed

Continued From Page 1A


While none of the manag-
ers contacted for comment
returned calls to the Lake
City reporter, each busi-
ness visited by the Lake City
Reporter on Friday had at
least two employees work-
ing, with dozens of custom-'
ers occupying terminals at
each cafe.
A line of at least eight
people was waiting in. line
Friday afternoon at Allied
Veterans Group, in the same
shopping center as the
Internet Cafe, where Browni
-."decided to play Friday after
returning the Players Club a
second time.
He 'gave the cashier a
$20 bill and received a.card
worth 2500 "points." Each
point is worth a penny, so
Brown was already ahead of
the game when he started.
He began playing
Gangsters Poker, with pay-
outs for one pair Jacks or
higher earning a player 5
points. The largest payout
is for a royal straight flush
earns the winner 10,000
points for a 25 cent wager,
the minimum bet allowed.
Brown scanned his first
hand, which included a pair
of twos, a nine and two face


cards. He saved two face
cards and drew three new
cards, but missed out on a
winning hand.
After playing poker at 25
cents a hand for about 20
minutes, Brown was down
to about 1,900 points. But
he had won $2.75 in the
"sweepstakes" bonus.
He decided to change to
a version of Keno, where he
broke even after wagering
about 200 points over sev-
eral games, adding $2.00 to
Shis "sweepstakes" bonus.
Brown said he likes play-
ing multiple games on the
same machine, rather than
having to move if he wants
to play electronic slots,
poker or more than a dozen
other games.
There is one big differ-
ence between an Internet
cafe and a regulated gam-
bling casino. The stakes
are low, along with the pay
out Every machine at the
Internet Cafe limits win-
nings to $500.
"IhadheardaboutInternet
cafes, but I didn't know they
were like this," Brown said.
"I was thinking about going
to Biloxi soon, but I think I'1
just stay in Lake City."

Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA A few
inches of snow coated the
Northeast on Saturday in a
storm so rare this season
in the East that some wel-
comed it
"We've been very lucky,
so we can't complain," said
Gloria Fernandez of New
York City, as she shoveled
the sidewalk outside her
workplace. "It's nice, it's
fluffy and it's on the week-
end," she said of the snow,
which hadn't fallen in the city
since a rare October storm
that that dumped more than
2 feet of snow in parts and
knocked out power to nearly
3 million homes and busi-
nesses in the region.
By midafternoon, 4.3
inches of snow had fallen
in Central Park and 3.4
inches at LaGuardia Airport
in New York. Most of east-
ern Pennsylvania, including
Philadelphia, and central
New Jersey saw about 4
inches of snow, with a few
places reporting up to 6
inches. Flurries and freezing
rain fell around Washington,
D.C.
Up to 10 inches was pre-
dicted for southeastern
Massachusetts, noteworthy
in a season -marked by a
lack of snow throughout the
Northeast The quick-mov-
ing storm was expected to
move but to sea overnight
Road conditions were fair
Saturday, officials said. Crews


in Pennsylvania and New
Jersey began salting roads
around midnight., and plow-
ing soon after. By midmorn-
ing, the snow had turned to
sleet in Philadelphia north
through central New Jersey.
and had stopped falling alto-
gether by early afternoon.
"Ift's a fairly moderate
snowstorm, at best," said
weather service forecaster
Bruce Sullivan.
Fewaccidentswerereport-
ed on the roads, helped by
the weekend's lack of rush
hour traffic, but New Jersey
transportation spokesman
Joe Dee cautioned drivers to
build in more time for trips.
Though temperatures will
warm up this afternoon he
said, forecasters expect the
wet ground to freeze again
overnight
Flights arriving at
Philadelphia Airport were
delayed up to two hours
because of snow and ice
accumulation and about 35
flights had been canceled,
but most departing flights
were leaving on time, air-
port spokeswoman Victoria
Lupica said.
New York City had 1,500
snow plows at the ready,
each equipped with global
positioning systems that
will allow supervisors to see
their approximate location
on command maps updat-
ed every 30 seconds, New
York City Mayor Michael
Bloomberg said at a morn-
ing news conference.


CARC: Not in complaint

Continued From Page 1A


"I would never tell
employees to put them-
selves in danger,"
Baughman said.
Greek said employees
were not supervised and
used brooms and industri-
al electric sanders to grind
the tile and glue down to
the concrete slab.
"'They had no clue how to
remove it," she said. "They
[management] didn't care.
They weren't doing it."
By the time OSHA
arrived, the tile was already
removed.
CARC board member
Glenn Hunter said nobody
knew the tile contained
asbestos until OSHA
inspectors arrived. They
decided to let the cleanup
continue since the tile was
already removed.
"OSHA believes that the
case can be closed on the
grounds that the hazard-
ous conditions has been
corrected (or no longer
exists)," the letter to man-
agers of the thrift shop
said.


Hunter said he dealt
directly with OSHA inves-
tigators after the complaint
was filed.
"They felt we intentional-
ly did not do this," Hunter
said. "I called to determine
the issues. We followed
their recommendations."
Baughman also defend-
ed her organization in a
Sept. 29 letter to OSHA.
"CARC is a not for profit
organization which is dedi-
cated to enriching the lives
of persons with disabilities,
and we take the health and
safety of employees and
clients seriously."
Hunter said the issue is
a dispute between Greek
and Baughman, both for-
mer employees.
"This is between Amber
and Brittany," Hunter said.
"They obviously left on bad
circumstances."
Baughman disagreed
there is a dispute between
her and Greek.
"I don't know her per-
sonally," she said. "I only
knew her as an employee."

OPINION


Sunday, January 22, 2012


O w


ONE
OPINION


It's the


economy,


stupid

t's starting to feel a lot
like 1992, and President
Obama's re-election team
should be worried. At this
point in President George
H.W. Bush's term, the presi-
dent's approval rating stood at
46 percent. According to Gallup,
Mr. Obama's is doing worse by
1 percent.
"Its the economy, stupid" was
1992's winning campaign slogan,
and the message will be just
as effective 20 years later. Mr.
Obama is stuck defending an
economic record far worse than
Mr. Bush's. The gross domestic
product (GDP) grew an average
of 4.3 percent over the first three
quarters in 1992, while 2012's
growth is expected to be half that
rate. Unemployment in October
1992 was 7.3 percent, while Mr.
Obama has said that an 8 percent
rate by election day is "possible."
Inconvenient truths like these are
why the White House is trying to
steer the debate into the vaguer
arena of class warfare and away,
from the specifics of Mr. Obama's
unhappy record.
The Obama White House
believes its foreign- policy flank
is secure. Twenty years ago,
the Bush administration was
still riding high on the success
of Operation Desert Storm, and
Mr. Bush was seen as having the
experience needed to manage
the chaos following the fall of
Soviet communism. As George
Stephanopoulos, then the commu-
nications director for Bill Clinton,
said, "Experience isn't judgment,
and we intend to question the
president's judgment when it is
appropriate." When it comes to
poor judgment, Mr. Obama has a
lot to answer for.
Mr. Obama is hoping the
killing of Osama bin Laden
will silence his critics, but Mr.
Bush had no luck resting on
the laurels of his successful war
against Saddam Hussein. The
same Democrats who accused
President George W. Bush of
unfairly exploiting the Sept 11,
2001, attacks for political gain will
draw the bin Laden takedown like
a gun to promote Mr. Obama.
The bin Laden killing is a
slim reed on which to base
an argument for another four
years. Mr. Obama can hardly
promise he will do it again.

Washington Calling makes last call


W Calling, born
in 1941 with
great hopes and
expectations,
died rather more quietly this
past Friday, a victim of the seis-
mic changes in print journalism.
Over those more than 70
years, "Washcall," as it was
known in office shorthand,
became a regular weekend fix-
ture in first the Scripps Howard
papers and then dozens of client
newspapers.
The first column appeared
under the byline of Ruth Finney,
a veteran hard-news reporter
when women rarely held that
job, and Ruth continued to write
it into the early '70s, when her
eyesight finally gave out.
The curious thing about
Washcall was that no one was
ever quite able to describe
what it was -supposed to be a
series of items, minus the usual
articles and written in a kind of
telegraphese with active verbs.
The reporters were told to
produce dope pieces that hadn't
yet quite jelled into a story, a
look at what's just over the news
horizon, glimpses behind the
scenes of major stories, what was
really behind personnel moves,
why a piece of legislation would
pass when the conventional
wisdom said it wouldn't, snarky
stuff overheard in the halls of
Congress.
In other words, the editors
would know it when they saw it.


Dale McFeatters
mcfeattersd@shns.com
The individual byline disap-
peared in favor of the more
mission-statement-like "A Weekly
Size-up by the Washington
Staff of the Scripps Howard
Newspapers."
And we had a staff, 20 report-
ers covering beats and special-
ties the White House, the
Department of Defense, the
Justice Department, economics,
labor, other major agencies and,
of course, Congress.
Each reporter was expected
to produce one or more usable
items that Ruth and subsequent
Washcall writers would read
aloud at a Friday-morning meet-
ing around a long, custom-made
conference table.
The reporters dare not show
up empty-handed because seated
at the head of the table, and gen-
erally looking grim about it, were
the editor in chief, the managing
editor and the chief editorial
writer. Occasionally, one of them
would growl, "Whose item is
that?" followed by a noncom-
mittal grunt
Ruth would then sit down
and turn out 1,300 words of
clean, concise copy almost as


,fast as she could type. As soon
as the column cleared, she and
Wauhillau LaHay, who wrote
saccharine "women's stuff' that
belied her salty, ribald personal-
ity, would head across the street
to a French restaurant where
they would down a couple of
martinis, a carafe of wine, the
daily special and a (ital) digestif
(end ital) sent over by the owner.
It was, indeed, a different era.
Within our bureau, the most
famous column submission, in
its entirety, said, "Don't worry
about those flying saucers.
They're ours." The reporter
said that his source refused to
allow him to elaborate. Sadly,
the good news about the UFOs
never saw print.
One of the bizarre traditions
of the column was a 3-foot-tall
metal lighthouse, the lighthouse
being the Scripps Howard logo,
that was festooned with little
flags, stuffed animals and other
random bits of kitsch that came
into the office. The lighthouse
was placed on the desk of the
reporter who had submitted the
best item that week.
In the column's 70 years, it
has had, with the exception of a
few fill-ins, only seven writers,
the most recent and, sadly, the
last, Lisa Hoffman:
And the decorated light-
house? It's on Lisa's desk. She
said shell never give it up.

Ruling on ultrasound law worth celebrating


'court of Appeals gave
S good reason for cel-
ebration for the hun-
dreds of thousands
who will arrive in Washington
for the 39th annual March for
Life on Monday.
The court last week upheld the
constitutionality of a new law in
Texas requiring that abortion pro-
viders do ultrasound exams and
that a woman listen to the physi-
cian's description of her unborn
child and to the heartbeat before
deciding whether to abort.
The law, signed by Gov. Rick
Perry in May, was blocked by a
federal district court in August It
argued that the law impinged on
the free-speech rights of abortion
providers.
Now, Texas may become not
just the nation's largest creator of
jobs, but the nation's best protec-
tor of human life.
Ultrasound images of unborn
children are turning the abortion
game around, which is why abor-
tion providers and organizations
such as Planned Parenthood that
promote the barbarous abortion
regime are so on edge about the
decision.
Seeing ultrasound images
has a major impact. Estimates
vary widely on the percentage of
women who intended to abort but
changed their minds after seeing
an ultrasound image. My own
anecdotal surveys, from crisis


Star Parker
porkers@shns.com
. pregnancy centers around the
country that I work with, indicate
that anywhere from 62 percent to
95 percent reconsider.
Focus on the Family reports
that 84 percent do. The nonprofit
Christian organization also oper-
ates a generous program called
Operation Ultrasound, through
which it provides ultrasound
equipment and training to crisis
pregnancy centers that apply.
According to Nancy Northrup,
president of the Center for
Reproductive Rights, which is
challenging the Texas law, "If this
decision stands, it opens the flood-
gates for other states to insert
themselves in an inappropriate
way between doctors and women
seeking medical care."
What can you possibly conclude
from a movement that labels itself
"pro-choice" and that opposes
ensuring that women who make
a decision as serious and grave as
abortion have as much vital infor-
mation as possible before making
that choice?
Good information is the oxygen
that enables good decision-mak-
ing. The answer to the question is
that the movement labeling itself
"pro-choice" is not about promot-
ing choice at all. It is about pro-
moting abortion.
It is why the so-called "pro-
choice" movement opposes efforts
to better provide women dispro-


portionately young, poor, minority
women with information that
raises their awareness and under-
standing of what they are doing.
We might recall the impact
that television images had after
Hurricane Katrina, when the real-
ity of poverty in America suddenly
was out there for all to see. No
one could look away from this
ugly and unpleasant truth.
An ultrasound image of an
unborn child is the same type of
media event Suddenly, the moth-
er-to-be sees what she didn't know
or perhaps knew and wanted to
avoid confronting. that she is the
bearer of human life and that she .
is close to murdering the very life
that she chose to help create.
According to Americans United
for Life, a public-interest law and
policy nonprofit, 460 pieces of
related legislation were consid-
ered'in state legislatures around
the nation last year.
The forces promoting igno-
rance are losing and light is shin-
ing through.
It is reason for optimism that
increasingly more Americans
grasp that for a free country to
function, we need informed and
responsible citizens.
We need appreciation that our
choices matter and that the most
important choice, as we learn in
Deuteronomy, is to choose life.

ANOTHER
VIEW


The IMF

money grab

T he World Bank is
pessimistic about
global economic
prospects. Last
week, the bank's
forecasters projected lower
growth in the year ahead for
both developing and devel-
oped countries. The European..
economy, wracked by the con-:
tinuing debt crisis, is expected
to shrink 0.3 percent.
That means the World
Bank's sister institution, the
International Monetary Fund
(IMF), is going to be busy.
IMF is looking for a stagger-
ing $600 billion in additional
funds to help shore up the
growing list of member coun-
tries staring at economic
oblivion.
Giving more money to this
institution is like handing
a box of matches to a pyro-
manic. Doling out more cash
to nations with an incurable
spending problem will only
deepen the debt crisis.
The expected recession
in Europe will drag down
global economic growth.
Developing countries, includ-
ing China, India and Brazil,
have thus far been spared
the impact of the troubles
facing the United States and
the continent. That could
change, as the World Bank
cut its growth forecast for
developing countries from
6.2 percent to 5.4 percent for
this year. China's growth has
dipped below 9 percent for
the. first time in more than
two years. Investment in
developing countries is down
by 45 percent.
On our shores, the
European mess is taking a
toll. Exports to Europe fell 6
percent in November, even as
overall exports grew for the
year. As the recession deep-
ens across the Atlantic, those
numbers are only going to
get worse.
That's because nothing
has been done to tackle the
root causes of the crisis in
Europe. Greece has yet to
reach any kind of agreement
with its private bondhold-
ers about a write-down in
the face value of its debt.
The IMF wants to continue
* throwing yet more money at
Greece, even though it has
failed to meet "austerity" tar-
gets as its politicians prove
incapable of spending only as'
much as they take in.
Once the cycle of bailouts
begins, there's no end. The
IMF knows this and admits
medium-term needs are
closer to $1 trillion. European.-
members have so far prom-
ised $200 billion to the bail-
out effort. China and Brazil
may commit some funds in
exchange for greater voting
power. The United States,
currently the largest share-
holder in the IMF, will almost
certainly not be willing to
increase funds, especially
in the face of congressional
Republican opposition. Some
in the GOP have indicated
they will try to cut $100 bil-
lion in funding to the IMF
if it is used to bailout more
eurozone countries.
Better yet, zero out the
IMF entirely. Established in
1945 to run a fixed exchange-
rate system that no longer
exists, the IMF is obsolete.
In the decades since it recast
itself as a lender offering
structural assistance, it
has been a singular failure
in helping the countries
it sought to assist from
Argentina in the 1990s to
Greece today.
The IMF is an enabler. Its
promise of bailouts allows
reckless countries to get
away spending with abandon


for longer than they would
have otherwise. The only real
reform will happen when the
bailouts stop, allowing eco-
nomic growth to return.

GINGRICH: Stuns Romney to win South Carolina primary and scramble race

population of conservatives, tea
party supporters and born-again
Christians.
For the first time all year, Romney
trailed among voters who said they
cared most about picking a can-
didate who could defeat President
Barack Obama this fall. Gingrich


was ahead of the field for those vot-
ers' support
As the first Southern primary,
South Carolina has been a proving
ground for Republican 'presidential
hopefuls in recent years.
Since Ronald Reagan in 1980,
every Republican contender who


won the primary has gone on to
capture the party's nomination.
Romney sweptinto South Carolina
11 days ago as the favorite after
being pronounced the winner of the
lead-off Iowa caucuses, then cruis-
ing to victory in New Hampshire's
first-in-the-nation primary.


Romney responded awkwardly
to questions about releasing his
income tax returns, and about his
investments in the Cayman Islands.
Gingrich, the former speaker of the
House, benefited from two well-re-
ceived debate performances while
grappling with allegations by an


ex-wife that ne had once asked her ,'
for an open marriage so he could
keep his mistress.
By primary eve, 'Romney was
speculating openly about a lengthy
battle for the nomination rather than
the quick knockout that had seemed
within his grasp only days earlier.


OBITUARIES


Lena Hagerty Griffin
Lena Hagerty Griffin, formerly
of Gainesville, Florida, passed
away on January 19, 2012 at Ap-
palachian Christian Village in
Johnson City, Tennessee at the
age of 94. Mrs. Griffin was born
Lena Zimmerman Hagerty on
March 26, 1917 in Birmingham,
Alabama. Mrs. Griffin was a lov-
ing wife, mother and a lifelong
educator. After graduating from
Phillips High
School in Bir- .
mingham, she
earned a bach-
elor's degree
at Judson Col-
lege in Marion,
Alabama and
a subsequent
master's degree in elementary
education from the Univer-
sity .of Florida as a specialist in
reading instruction. Mrs. Grif-
fin taught public school for
twenty-four years in Alabama
and Florida. She then served
for eight years as reading coor-
dinator at Chiefland Elementary
School in Levy County, 'Florida.
After retirement, Mrs. Griffin
remained active in her commu-
nity, teaching coiiversational
English at the First Baptist
Church of Gainesville, Florida
and representing the Alachua
County Retired Educators As-
sociation as a volunteer with
the Alachua County Literacy
Network. She also served on
the Florida Retired Educators
Association literacy board.
As a member of Philanthropic
Education Organization (PEO),
Chapter I, Mrs. Griffin worked
closely with her international
students, three of whom (two
from Thailand, and one from In-
dia) received the organization's
International Peace Scholarship.
As an active member of the
American Association of Re-
tired Persons (AARP), she
received two National Com-
munity Service Awards for
her contributions to the Santa
Fe River Literacy Fellowship
and for her work with the Ala-
chua County Retired Educators.
Mrs. Griffin's great loves,
other than her family and lit-
eracy, were music and com-
munity service. She attended
symphony concerts, played the
piano, and sang often. Her fam-.
ily well knew that the smell of
freshly-baked cake meant there
would be half of a cake to en-
joy for dessert; she would take
the other half to a local family
in need of care or encourage-
ment. Her children would often
accompany her.on these visits,
learning the importance of com-
munity service and compassion.
She was active in her member-
ship at First Baptist Church in
Lake City, Florida; Westside
Baptist Church in Gaines-
ville, Florida; First Baptist
Church in Kingsport, TN;
and attended Central Baptist
Church in Johnsonr City, -TN
since moving to Johnson City.
Mrs. Griffin was preceded in
death by her husband, John D.
Griffin, Jr., her parents Bertha
Dare and Phillip T. Hagerty, of
Birmingham, AL, her brother,
Barton Hagerty, of Durham, NC
her sister, Mary Ruth Hendrix,
of Montgomery, AL, and an in-
fant daughter, Linda Carolyn
Griffin. She is survived by her
son John P. Griffin of Dayton,
TX; daughter Sue G. Lockett
of Johnson City, TN; son Rich-
ard D. Griffin of Alexandria,
VA; daughter Jan L. Griffin of
Asheville, NC; and five grand-
children, six great grandchildren
and several nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life service
will be held on Sunday, Janu-
ary 22, 2012 at 3:00 PM in the
Sunrise chapel of Tetrick Fu-
neral Services with Dr. Ron


Murray officiating. The fam-

Florida Tax Payers

please research this information.
With our taxes, Florida School Districts will be testing Biology 1 public
school students in the spring of .2012 concerning the blasphemous
fallacy of The Scientific Theory of Evolution, which is contrary to the WVord
of God. It teaches hominid evolution which flies in the face of Columbia
High School, Fort White High School and Challenge Learning Center
students,and alumni. All of them are offspring of Adam and his female
wife Eve and therefore are created by God, in the image of God. (Compare
Holy Bible versus Florida Biology 1 End-if-Course Assessment Test Items
Specifications, page 32 SC.7.L.15.1; page 52 5C.912.L15.10

http://fcat.fldoe.org/eoc/pdf/BiologyFLlSp.pdf)

I challenge the Florida Columbia County School District and all of its teachers
to a public debate between The Scientific Theory of Evolution and the Holy
Bible. Kenny Merriken 386-344-7339, kbmerriken@hotmail.com

NATIONAL FORECAST: A series of low pressure systems centered in the central U.S. will be
responsible for widespread precipitation today. Look for rain and snow for the central and
northern Plains, with snow and ice across the Upper Midwest. There will also be a chance
of scattered showers and thunderstorms for the southern Mississippi Valley, with showers
extending into the Southeast.

Fourth quarter

dooms Tigers in

district matchup


Columbia splits
season series with
Wolfson High.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreportfr.com
Columbia" High had a
chance to lock down the
No. 1 seed in the district
tournament with a win over
Wolfson High on Saturday.
A fourth quarter that
saw the Wolfpack outscore
the Tigers, 22-10, was the


difference, however, as vis-
iting Wolfson took down the
Tigers, 64-57.
"It came down to not
taking care of the ball,"
Columbia head coach
Horace Jefferson said. "We
had some serious miscues.
You take away that one seg-
ment and we probably win
the game."
Jefferson was emotional
about the loss following the
game as he was hoping the

trip of a lifetime.
New England


Patriots receiver Chad
Ochocinco has more than
3 million followers on his
Twitter account. Victor
Gonzalez of Fort White is
one of them.
Frustrated with being
among the multitude,


Gonzalez sent Ochocinco
a message: "Been tweeting
you for two years and
have not ever gotten a
response."
It struck a nerve, as
Ochocinco retweeted:
"Damn 2 years? My bad.

that former PSU
coach died.
GENARO C. ARMAS
Associated Press
STATE COLLEGE, Pa.
- Joe Paterno's doctors
say the former Penn State
coach's condition has
become "serious" after he
experienced complications
from lung cancer in recent
days.
Paterno family spokes-
man Dan McGinn has just
told The Associated Press


that reports of former
Penn State coach's death
are 'not true.'
The winningest major
college football coach of
all time, Paterno was diag-
nosed shortly after Penn
State's Board of Trustees
ousted him Nov. 9. in the
aftermath of the child sex
abuse charges against
former assistant Jerry
Sandusky. Paterno's been
getting treatment since,
and his health problems
were worsened when he
broke his pelvis an inju-
ry that first cropped up
when he was accidentally


hit in preseason practice
last year.
"His family will have no
comment on the situation
and asks that their privacy
be respected during this
difficult time," he said.
The 85-year-old Paterno
has been in the hospital
since Jan. 13 for observa-
tion for what his family had
called minor complications
from his cancer treatments.
Not long before that, he con-
ducted his only interview
since losing his job, with The
Washington Post. Paterno
was described as frail then
and wearing a wig.


Want to come to the game
Saturday?"
That game just
happened to be the NFL
divisional playoff between
New England and Denver.
Gonzalez sprung into
action.


"I told him I live in
Florida and he would have
to fly me out," Gonzalez
said. "He said, 'OK you can
fly out with my brothers.'

DURHAM, N.C.
- Michael Snaer hit a 3-
pointer as time expired and
Florida State beat No. 4
Duke 76-73 on Saturday,
snapping Duke's 45-
game homecourt winning
streak.
With the game tied,
Luke Loucks sprinted up
the middle of the court
before zipping a.pass over
to Snaer on the right side
in front of the FSU bench.
Snaer quickly launched a
shot that dropped cleanly
through the net, stunning
the once-rowdy crowd at
Cameron Indoor Stadium
and sending the Seminoles'
bench spilling onto the
court in celebration.-
Snaer scored 14 points
- including a banked-in 3
to beat the buzzer on the
final play of the first half -
and the Seminoles (13-6,4-1
Atlantic Coast Conference)
won their fourth straight
game.
Austin Rivers had 19
points and tied the game
on a driving basket with 4.9
seconds left for the Blue
Devils (16-3, 4-1).
Duke led by nine in the
first half and by eight mid-
way through the second
half, but the Seminoles
just wouldn't let the Blue
Devils pull away to tie a
school and ACC record for
the longest home winning

streak. Instead, they kept
attacking and knocking
down tough shots in one of
college basketball's most
hostile environments.
In fact, Snaer knocked
down a pair of clutch shots
in the final minute. On the
first, he drove into the paint
and knocked down a pull-
Sup in the paint for a 71-
70 lead with 55.8 seconds
left. He followed that with
an even bigger one, then
found himself at the center
of a celebration that migrat-
ed all the way across the
court to stand in front of a
stunned group of Cameron

GAINESVILLE Erik
Murphy scored 15 points
and No. 17 Florida beat
LSU 76-64 Saturday night
to extend its home win
streak to 16 games.
The' Gators (15-4, 3-1
SEC) had five players in
double figures, a.balanced
effort that helped them
overcome an off shooting
night from 3-point range.
Erving Walker had 12
points, and Kenny Boynton,
Bradley Beal and Mike
Rosario finished with 11
points apiece for Florida,.
which made 7 of 21 shots
from behind the arc.
Justin Hamilton led the
Tigers with a career-high 27
points and eightrebounds.

The 7-footer made 13 of 22

the rest of his team.
Hamilton helped LSU (12-

with 3. minutes remaining,
but the Gators pulled .away
down the stretch. Walker
hit a 3 with 2:27 remaining
- his first* of the game
- to make it 73-60.
Patric Young, dealing with
tendinitis in his right ankle,
had eight points and seven
rebounds for the Gators,
who improved to 10-0 in
Gainesville this season.
Florida shot 64 percent
in the first half and used a
15-4 run to build a big lead.
The Gators essentially put
the game away with a flur-
ry of 3-pointers just after
the breal..
Rosario, Murphy and
Scottie Wilbekin hit shots
from behind the arc in a
3-minute span that pushed
Florida's lead to 53-38. LSU
trimmed it under double'
digits several times, but
couldn't get enough defen-
sive stops to pull, within
striking distance.
The Tigers shot 44 per-
cent from the field but
aside from Hamilton, the
rest of the team made 15 of
41 shots. Anthony Hickey
was the only other LSU
player in double figures
with 10 points.
Florida, which didn't
have a midweek game, was
cold at the start.

Dominant Serena moves on at Australian


By CAROLINE CHEESE
Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia
- Just before she walked
on court, Greta Arn said
she. was looking forward
to the "privilege" of play-
ing her first match against
Serena Williams. Some
privilege.
The 13-time Grand Slam
champion overpowered
Arn 6-1, 6-1 in 59 min-
utes on Saturday for her
17th straight win at the
Australian Open.
The mismatch was so
great that the crowd was
muted, rousing themselves
only when Arn won her two
games and when Williams
completed her third-round
victory.
Arn double-faulted twice
to end the match. As the
players shook hands at the
net, Williams looked briefly
taken aback and smiled.
"I told her it was an honor
to play against you," the 32-
year-old Arri said. "And she'
told me, 'Oh, you are so
sweet.' I'm a big fan of hers.
She's the real No. 1."
Williams, who racked up
her 501st career match win,
is hoping to become the
second woman over age 30
to win the Australian tile in
the Open era.
"It makes me feel real-
ly good," she said of her
Hungarian opponent's
remarks. "I'm really proud
of the work that I've been
doing for so many years, all
the hard work."
Vania King's loss to Ana
Ivanovic left Williams as the
only American player left in
either singles draw. John
Isner lost Friday, the, last
American man to exit.:
Coming off an injury-rav- .
aged 18 months, Williams is
seeded 12th in Melbourne.
She hasn't held the top rank-
ing since 2010, the year she
won the last of her Grand
Slam titles.
On Saturday, she spoke
expansively about her off-
court activities: She's tak-
ing courses in kinesiology


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Serena Williams of the United States plays a shot against Hungary's Greta Arn on her way to winning their third round match
at the Australian Open tennis championship, in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday.


and management and pre-
paring for an appearance in
a "pretty big" TV show.
Arn says "everybody
knows" if Williams hits
top form she will win the
Australian Open, where
she hasn't lost since 2008.
She won back-to-back titles
in. 2009 and 2010 and was
unable to defend her title
last year while she recovered
from two foot surgeries.
Because of her ranking,
Williams can't take the
No. 1 spot with a win at
Melbourne. However, No. 2
Petra Kvitova, No. 3 Victoria
Azarenka and No. 4 Maria
Sharapova could walk away
with the top ranking if they
win the tournament.
Next up for Williams is
unseeded RussianEkaterina
Makarova. After that, things
are likely to get a lot tough-
er. Sharapova is a poten-


tial quarterfinal opponent,
and Wimbledon champion
Kvitova may await in the
semifinals.
"I'm nowhere near where
I want to be," said Williams,
who came into the tour-
nament nursing a sprained
left ankle. "I'm just trying
to play through it. A little
rusty, just trying to play
through my rust."
Sharapova and Kvitova
joined Williams in advanc-
ing to the fourth round
on Saturday. Between the
three of them, they lost six
games.
Kvitova was leading 6-0,
1-0 when Russian opponent
Maria Kirilenko retired.
Sharapova, who won her
first two matches 6-0, 6-1,
was tested for the first time
and still came out with a
6-1, 6-2 win over U.S. Open
semifinalist Angelique


Kerber.
Like Williams, Sharapova
came into the tournament
short of matches. The three-
time Grand Slam champion
hurt her left ankle late last
season and didn't play a
tuneup event before the
Australian Open.
"Whether it's a Grand
Slam or anywhere else in
the world, if you're com-
mitted to playing that tour-
nament you have to be
ready from the first match,"
Sharapova said.
It was a day of lopsided
scorelines on Rod Laver
Arena.
No. 1-ranked Novak
Djokovic routed Nicolas
Mahut 6-0, 6-1, 6-1 in 1
hour, 14 minutes to give
, the Frenchmafi a miserable
30th birthday present.'
Mahut, who lost the lon-
gest Grand Slam match in


history over 11 hours, 5
minutes at Wimbledon in
2010, was hampered by a
left leg injury, but said he
played because the previ-
ous matches on Rod Laver
Arena were over so quickly.
"I wish' him happy birth-
day and hopefully tonight
he can enjoy it," Djokovic
said.
The defending champion
has won 24 straight sets at
the Australian Open, and
has lost 10 games in his first
three matches this time..
"I always played well in
Australia. This is the; only
Grand Slam I won twice,"
he said. 'The conditions are:
great. They're very suitable
to my style of the game, day
and night. Im really look-
ing forward t6 next'week."
Djokovic likely, gets an
evening slot for his fourth-
round match against


Lleyton Hewitt. The 30-
year-old Australian downed
promising Canadian Milos
Raonic 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5), 6-3
in Saturday's final match
of the day before a raucous
home crowd.
Playing in his 16th
straight Australian Open,
Hewitt needed three match
points in the final game
to close out the win and
become the first wild card
entry .to reach the fourth
round in Melbourne since
Mats Wilander in 1994.
"It's just a game," Hewitt
said. "But it's a bloody big
game."
No. 2-ranked Rafael
Nadal and No. 3 Roger
Federer are back on court

49ers, Giants ready to


renew playoff rivalry


By JANIE McCAULEY
Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO -
The Giants boasted a physi-
cal, intimidating defense
with athletic linebackers
and stout linemen capable
of stifling the NFL's most
productive offenses. San
Francisco featured a high-
powered passing attack led
by an eventual Hall of Fame
quarterback in his prime
with receivers capable of
turning short passes into
big gains.
When the San Francisco
49ers host the New York
Giants in the NFC champi-
onship game Sunday for a
shot at the Super Bowl, the
matchup conjures memo-
ries from a previous era of
this great rivalry even
if the roles are somewhat
reversed.
The elite quarterback
now is New York's Eli
Manning, who connects on
big plays to Hakeem Nicks
and Victor Cruz in a similar
fashion to how Joe Montana
and Jerry Rice did for the
dominant Niners in the
1980s.
San Francisco's current
front seven led by relentless
defensive lineman Justin
Smith, rookie pass-rush-
ing specialist Aldon Smith
and fierce linebackers
Patrick Willis and NaVorro
Bowman resembles that old
Giants group featuring Hall
of Famers Lawrence Taylor
and Harry Carson.
And who could have pre-
dicted this surprising pair-
ing?
The Giants (11-7) toppled
defending champion Green
Bay 37-20 last Sunday when
everybody figured the road
to the Super Bowl would
go through Lambeau Field.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning throws a pass dur-
ing an NFL football practice on Friday in East Rutherford, N.J.
The Giants travel to San Francisco to play the 49ers in the
NFC championship game on Sunday.


Instead, New York is travel-
ing West to San Francisco
to face the upstart 49ers
(14-3) in a meeting of fran-
chises with so many fresh
faces on the big stage.
Jim Harbaugh's "mighty
men" as he calls them
stunned Drew Brees and
the favored Saints 36-32
when Alex Smith hit Vernon
Davis for the game-winning
14-yard touchdown with
9 seconds remaining.
Smith knows both the
49ers and Giants showed
it's anybody's game come
playoff time.
"Look at last week, I think
everybody thought the road
was going to go through
Lambeau. I think everybody
assumed the NFC champi-
onship game was going to
get played there and look
what happens," Smith said.
"These teams at this point,
everybody's as good as
each other and it's all going
to come down to how you
execute on that day. We're
all capable of beating each
other, that's for sure."


Smith and Manning each
orchestrated five fourth-
quarter comebacks dur-
ing the regular season, yet
Manning missed in a 27-20
loss at San Francisco on
Nov. 13 when Justin Smith
batted away his last-ditch
pass attempt on fourth down
in the waning moments.
"This is about the NFC
championship. Ift's an oppor-
tunity to get this win and
go on to the Super Bowl,"
Manning said. "We played
them once before. We know
they're a good team. There's
no denying that. They're
playing great football.
They're playing with great
confidence. It's going to be
exciting going out there and
having another shot and see-
ing what we can do."
Niners long snapper
Brian Jennings is the only
one left on either side from
San Francisco's last trip to
the playoffs in January 2003,
when the 49ers rallied for,
a stunning 39-38 comeback
victory against the Giants at
Candlestick Park.


Philbin ready to take over Phins


By STEVEN WINE
Associated Press

MIAMI A month
of wrenching emotion
for Green Bay Packers
offensive coordinator Joe
Philbin took another turn
Friday when he landed
the Miami Dolphins' head
coaching job.
The deal was sealed
less than two weeks
after Philbin's 21-year-old
son drowned in an icy
Wisconsin river.
Philbin, who has never
been a head coach, first
interviewed with Miami
on Jan. 7. The body of son
Michael, one of Philbfn's
six children, was recov-
ered the next day in
Oshkosh.
Joe Philbin did a little
math and determined he
has been in the coach-
ing profession for 10,061
days. He figures that
gives him sufficient expe-
rience to lead the Miami
Dolphins.
The former Green Bay
Packers offensive coordi-
nator was introduced as
Miami's coach at a news
conference Saturday. He
says he has learned a lot
in 28 years as an assis-
tant and is optimistic he
can succeed as a first-time
head coach.
Philbin said his goal is
to return the Dolphins to
the top of the NFL, and he
noted they haven't been
there since 1973, the year
of their most recent Super
Bowl championship season.
Philbin had been with
Green Bay since 2003,
working as offensive coor-
dinator since 2007 for one
of the NFL's most prolific
offenses.
After spending a week
away from the Packers,
Philbin rejoined the team
last Sunday for its division-
al playoff loss to the New
York Giants.


Philbin has been with
Green Bay since 2003,
serving as offensive coor-
dinator since 2007. Coach
Mike McCarthy called
the plays, but Philbin put
together the game plan for
one of the NFL's most pro-
lific offenses.
The Dolphins' top
choice, Jeff Fisher, turned
them down a week. ago to
become coach of the St.
Louis Rams. Miami owner
Stephen Ross and general
manager Jeff Ireland then
conducted a second round
of interviews this week with
Philbin, Denver Broncos
offensive coordinator Mike
McCoy and Todd Bowles,
the Dolphins' interim coach
at the end of the season.
"Joe has all the attributes
that we were looking for
when we started this pro-
cess," Ross said in a state-
ment. "Jeff Ireland and I felt
Joe was the right choice to
bring the Dolphins back to
the success we enjoyed in
the past."


The Dolphins are com-
ing off a third consecu-
tive losing season, their
longest such stretch since
the 1960s. Even so, Philbin
called them "one of the
premier franchises in pro-
fessional sports."
"The Dolphins have a
strong nucleus to build
around," he said in a
statement. "And work-
ing with everyone in the
organization, I know that
together we will return
the team to its winning
tradition."
Ross fired Tony Sparano
last month with three
games to go in his fourth
year as the Dolphins'
coach. When the search
for a new coach began,
Ros3 said he would like to
give the franchise much-
needed stability by hiring
"a young Don Shula."
Instead he chose the 50-
year-old Philbin, who has
28 years of coaching expe-
rience, including 19 years
in college.

with a personal phone call
with the details."
That was Sunday
and Gonzalez heard no
more until a reporter
from Boston called on
Wednesday to check on
the story.
"I told (Ochocinco)
about the call and said
what do I tell him,"
Gonzalez said "Am I
actually coming? He said,
'Yeah, I wouldn't do that to
you.'"
Gonzalez got the flight
ticket and was met at the
airport on Boston a
limousine and the driver
was holding a sign with his
name.
"He had a driver waiting
and there was a TV
reporter there," Gonzalez
said. "They interviewed
me in the airport and I
got in the limo and went
to his house. I thought he
was going to send me to
the hotel, but I got to hang
around with him all day."
Ochocinco had to stay
with the team on Friday-
night before the game
and had a curfew, so
he sent Gonzalez to the
Renaissance Boston Hotel
at Patriot Place in Foxboro,
Mass., and paid for the
room and meals.
"He sent me on a
shopping spree," Gonzalez

might think. He also gave
me seven autographed
jerseys that he actually
wore in games and I left
a football with him for
everybody to sign."
Gonzalez said the
Patriots fans knew
about the offer and he
was greeted along with
'Ochocinco.
"People would ask him
for an autograph, then
shake my hand because
they had seen the story,"
Gonzalez said. "At the
game, fans were yelling
at me. Ochocinco was
really fan friendly. He took
pictures with them and
shook hands." \
With the Patriots
blowout win, things only
got better.
"We had dinner with
some of the players and
wives after the game,"
Gonzalez said. "I spoke
with Wes Welker a little bit,
but (Tom) Brady left."
When the Broncos
were leaving, Ochocinco
arranged for Gonzalez to
meet Willis McGahee and,
yes, Tim Tebow.
"I told Tebow I wanted
to go to Florida and he said
it was a great school and
I would love it," Gonzalez
said. "He was not happy
after the loss, but he was
in a good mood. He put


all his attention on talking
with me and that made
me feel pretty good. I was
so excited to meet him,
I forgot to ask for his
autograph."
One would expect
graciousness from Tebow,
but Ochocinco has a prima
donna reputation. Gonzalez
said that was not the case.
"Chad treated me like
family," Gonzalez said. "He
checked in periodically
and made sure I was
comfortable. On Sunday,
we watched the Ravens
and Texans at his house.
He is very football smart
and conscious of how
the whole game works.
He loves the Patriots and
hopes to stay there."
Liking Tebow did not
get Gonzalez in trouble,
but his Tweeter account
has a New York Yankees
reference and that did not
sit well in Red Sox land.
"I'm a big Yankee fan and
they gave me a lot of grief,"
Gonzalez said. "Once I told
them I was now part of the
Patriots nation, it made
them happy."
After the trip, Gonzalez
saw his Twitter following
swell from 115 to more
than 1,000. He has also
moved from Ochocinco's
mass following account to
a special account with 65


followers.
"It was really a persorial
thing," Gonzalez said of
the experience. "He let
somebody he didn't even


know into his house. It
really shocked me he
did that. It was just like
meeting my best friend
from high school."

Every hole will be restored
to it original design, says
owner Wayne Hudson.
By GORDON JACKSON.
S.: t son@lakecityreporter.com
tier a 1 4-year hiatus, T-N-T
Mini Golf and Games has
.' reopened at its original loca-
t "' tion on State Road 47, a little
*,A, .... more than one mile south of
Interstate 75.?
For those who were regular custom-
ers at the putt-putt course and game
complex two decades ago, it xill be like
going back in time.
Wayne Hudson, the course owner,
said every hole on the putt-putt course
is restored to its original design. Pecan
trees still shade the course and hazards
await golfers on every hole such as the
corkscrew ramp on No. 16, the madden-
ing maze on No. 13 and the intimidating
water hazard lurking behind finishing


hole No. 18.
"A lot of adults, even grandparents,
played here on dates back then,"
Hudson said. "Everybody's excited
about it reopening after all these years."
The course closed in the mid 1990s
after Hudson's children went to college
and they no longer had time to help run
the facility, he said. Hudson leased the
site to a new tenant who eventually used
it for trailer and industrial storage.
"During the 14 years it was closed, I
could hardly stand it." he said.
When the tenant moved last year,
Hudson said he decided to renovate the
course to provide a fun, family activity
in the community.
The renovation of the course isn't
the only familiar sight old customers
will see. The owner's son and associate
pastor at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church,
Tommy Hudson, will play an active role
managing the business. He was one of
the original managers when the course
opened two decades ago.

Future
Waste Management (NYSE:
WM), the Houston-based garbage
giant, didn't have the rosiest 2011,
but 2012 may be better.
In our sluggish economy, consum-
ers and businesses can't cut garbage
collection, but a softer economy does
mean less stuff is made and con-
sumed. As a result, there's less waste
to be collected. An economic turn-
around would push Waste Manage-
ment's volumes in the right direction.
For a business like waste col-
lection that's not growing rapidly,
pricing is a key component. Waste
Management targets its price
increases to be between half and
one percentage point above the
consumer price index. That's sig-
nificant, and it reveals a big part of
Waste Management's value propo-
sition: Because it offers customers
compelling service, it has been able
to raise prices ahead of inflation.
Finally, the company has been
investing in growth businesses, such
as technologies that convert waste
to energy, as well as putting money
toward efficiencies and long-run
cost reductions. These may be great
places to invest shareholder money,
but only if they pay off. So investors
should watch for positive revenue
and earnings from these initiatives.
In the meantime, Waste Manage-
ment is rewarding shareholders with
a dividend yield above 4 percent.
(The Motley Fool owns shares of
Waste Management, and its newslet-
ters have recommended it.)

percent Jewelry sales were
up 30 percent at Christmas.
"The worse the economy,
the better my jewelry," said
Terri Gehring, who oversees
the store's jewelry counter. -
One of the biggest drivers
in the pawn business is gold,
whose price has shot as high
as $1,800 an ounce. It has
now settled at about $1,600.
Birkle set a large plastic
bag of gold jewelry down
on his desk and said it rep-
resents a four-month collec-
tion.
"It's huge," he said, though
he prefers not to disclose its
value.
Nationally, the average
loan by pawnshops is $150,
nearly double the amount
that was recorded in 2008,
according to the National
Pawnbrokers Association.
About 6 percent of Idaho
households have used pawn-
shops to borrow money,
slightly above the national
rate of 5.7 percent, accord-
ing to a 2010 study by the
Federal Deposit Insurance
Corp. of households that use
alternatives to traditional
banks.
With the growing busi-
ness come concerns from
consumer groups, who note
that interest charged at
pawnshops can be as high
as 20 percent on a 30-day
loan.
That is the standard inter-
est rate at both Vista Pawn
and First National Pawn,
a Montana chain with 11
stores, including one in


In this photo taken Jan. 4, 2012, manager Seth Herson,
left, talks to Ellie Morgan; who cleaned out her closets and
brought an old pair of skis, boots a snowboard, and two
lacrosse racquets to Vista Pawn in Boise, Idaho. Morgan was
content with the $30 she kept the lacrosse racquets just
to have the space in her apartment. As banks have tightened
lending, home-equity loans have become scarcer and credit
cards have blown past their upper limits, people have been
turning to pawnshops for quick cash to make ends meet.


Boise and one in Caldwell.
Birkle defends the inter-
est rate, saying it pays for the
storage of pawned goods,
utilities and other business


costs.
In cases of larger loans,
typically more than $1,000,
Vista's rate can drop to as
low as 5 percent, he said.


Often, those loans are
made on small items, like
jewelry and electronic
games, that don't take much
storage space.
Idaho has no limits onwhat
pawnshops can charge.
Pawnshop operators say
their businesses provide a
critical lifeline to people with
few other options.
There is no credit check.
If customers borrow money
on items and don't come
back, no one comes after
them. The items just go up'
for sale.
"If someone has bad
credit, they can get a loan"
at a pawnshop, said Cody
Chapple, manager of First
National Pawn's store at 919
N. Orchard St. in Boise.
Pawnshops often buy
goods outright. But the
more lucrative business is
issuing loans against those
belongings.
Customers often prefer
borrowing over selling,
because they have a chance
to hold onto items that may
be their only tickets to cash
in the future. Vista Pawn
says about 85 percent of


its customers retrieve their
items after repaying the
principal and interest
Brick-and-mortar .pawn-
shops are starting to see
some competition from
online companies that let
customers do their borrow-
ing without being seen going
into a pawnshop.
Pawngo, based in Denver,
began its online pawning
operation in June and has
made $5 million in loans,
said CEO Todd Hills.
Customers contact the com-
pany, describe the item for
pawn and get a tentative loan
amount from Pawngo. The
customer ships the item at
no cost to Pawngo. After
the company receives the
item, Pawngo makes a final
loan offer. If the customer
accepts it, money is wired
into the customer's bank
account.
Pawngo's Internet effi-
ciencies allow it to charge
just 3 percent to 6 percent a
month for loans, Hills said.
The loans last three months.
On a $2,000 loan at 6 percent
a month, customers would
pay back $2,360.


PUTT-PUTT: Course like trip back in time


Continued From Page 1C
"It was a safe place f6r us," he
said of the course. "It provided work
experience,.but mostly it was for the
community."
Volunteers from the church's
outreach ministry will help manage
the business without pay to help
keep costs low and ensure families
will have an affordable place where
they can participate in a fun activity
together, he said.
"We're trying to provide a safe
place for family and singles recre-


ation," he said. "Its something fami-
lies can do together, regardless of
age or physical condition."
Besides the putt-putt course,
the facility also has a "Basketball
Challenge" featuring tricked up back-
boards, weird hoop angles and dis-
tracting obstructions on every shot.
And a game room featuring pool
tables, air hockey, pinball machines
and video games awaits customers
inside the club house on site.
Winter hours are 4 p.m. to 8:30


p.m. on Fridays and 2 p.m. to 8:30
p.m. on Saturdays. The course is
also open by appointment for private
events such as birthdays, family
reunions and other gatherings. Party
rates begin at $40 for unlimited golf
and basketball challenge. The facil-
ity also includes a covered, fenced-in
area with a grill. Call (386) 965-1263
for information.
"The word is still getting out,"
Tommy Hudson said. "We've already
hosted a lot of parties."

The

legacy of

J. Sterling

Morton

eebraska settler, J.
Sterling Morton,
is responsible
for our modem
celebration called
Arbor Day. After arriving on
the treeless frontier, he set
out to plant as many trees as
possible. We still recognize
the value of trees and observe
a nationwide Arbor Day.
Florida observes Arbor Day
on the third Friday of January,
coinciding with the best lime
of year to plant trees. Trees
have time to develop healthy
roots before the warm, dry
spring months arrive. During
prolonged dry spells, supple-
mental,water should be pro-
vided.
Many questions about
pruning and planting come
through my office during the
winter. Gardeners are more
than ready to prepare for
another growing season. One
or two months of brown are
more than enough,
January is the time to
plant deciduous fruit trees,
right along with shade and
ornamental trees. Pruning of
mature trees should be done
during the dormant season
after the danger of severe cold
has passed, but before flower-
ing begins. http://edis.ifas.ufl.
edu/hs365
Camellias are in bloom, so
its a great time to go shopping
for just the right flower color
for your garden. Because its
also a good time to plant, add-
ing that special camellia now
is a 'win-win'. As February
rolls around and azaleas start
to bloom in the garden shops,
you can be a choosy shopper
again.
February is a good month
to get your crepe myrtle
shaped up. To keep the
branches strong, prune them
at differing lengths so new
growth doesn't emerge from
mnobs'. Those 'knobs' on
branches will form if you
prune back to the same place
every year.
Take time in February to
prune and shape your roses,
too. For details, visit http://
www.ars.org/pdfs/basic_
pruning.pdf. After pruning,
apply fertilizer and mulch, and
your roses will begin bloom-
ing in another eight weeks.
Other summer bloomers such
as cassia, abelia and oleander
can be pruned right before the
leaves start to emerge. Wait
to prune spring bloomers,
however, such as dogwood,
redbud and spirea until after
they have bloomed.
Join me in a Back to Basics
workshop as we discuss topics
such as Edible Landscapes',
"Dooryard Fruit Trees', and
'Vegetable Gardens in North
Florida'. The Series starts on
the evening of February 28th.

Office at 752-5384 for more

The Parker sisters display clumpS of theirhair that they are going to donate to help build a wig for others after their grandmother was diagnosed
with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in 2008.


i


hi' f /


Sisters, ages 7, 6 and
4, are spurred to
participate in Locks
of Love after see-
ing grandmother's
plight.

By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Most people
cringe when
they hear the
word "cancer"'
often explaining
it to young children as 'The C
word."
Bailey Parker is a seven-year-
old who has chosen to help
her grandmother, whom she
affectionately calls "Granna,"
and other people fight cancer by
using the "L word" love.
Bailey has enlisted her two
younger sisters, Bracen and
Blair, and the three are taking
part in the Locks of Love pro-
gram, where they have donated
their hair to cancer patients
after learning their grandmother
was fighting the disease.
Joyce Henderson Taylor, the
girls' grandmother, has Chronic
Myelogenous Leukemia (CML),
a cancer of the white blood
cells. Taylor's daughter and the
girls' mother, Jamie Parker, said
Taylor was diagnosed in May
2008. Parker said there is no
cure for CML and its patients
normally have a life span of
three to five years after diagno-
sis.
Bailey led the charge in the
three children participating
in the Locks of Love program
and donating their hair to the
program for cancer victims. The
girls had their haircuts on Jan.
12 for the program.
Bailey, 7, Bracen, 6, and Blair,
4, are the three daughters of
Wes and Jamie Parker-and the
granddaughters of Cindy and


Joyce Henderson Taylor (from left) is seen with her grandchildren
Bracen, Bailey and Blair at Taylor's birthday celebration.


Wayne Duke and James and
Virginia Shaffer.
Bailey said she learned about
the Locks of Love program
while watching a documentary
on TLC.
'We saw this girl that had no
hair and it was really sad for
her," she said, in a serious voice
for a seven-year-old. 'To help I
wanted little kids and other peo-
ple not to have cancer. I wanted
to donate my hair to help the
kids that have cancer so they
could have hair."
Parker said her daughters


associate cancer and cancer
awareness with her mother.
"Cancer is a big issue in our
family because my mother has
cancer," she said. "Anything
that you hear about cancer, the
kids kind of pick up on because
they've linked cancer to their
grandmother. When Bailey saw
that kids got cancer, it really
touched her because some of
the children don't have hair
because of the treatments. She
really got adamant about want-
ing to donate her hair to another
child."


The hair is often used to
make wigs for the children.
Parker said she and her hus-
band have sat the girls down
and talked with them about can-
cer and how it impacts people
and makes them sick.
"Bailey wanted to donate
her hair because she saw that
she could make a difference,"
Parker said. "They just wanted
to help some little girl smile like
they do."
Parker said she supported the
girls as they spoke to her about
getting their hair cut for the
program.
"I cried when they cut their
hair, but I cried more because
of the fact that I felt like my kids
so much more grown up that
they actually are, making a big
step like that at ages, 7, 6, and 4
years old," Parker said. "I cried
because I felt proud because
.they wanted to help someone
else. I guess as kids there are
a lot of ways they don't feel like
they can make a difference in
things."
Bailey was with Taylor on
the day Taylor learned she had
cancer. Since then the girls have
taken on adult-sized roles in
trying to deal with the illness,
but their curiosity as children
comes out at times.
Taylor said the girls ask her
questions about the medicines,
how she's feeling and they even
say "Granna" walks like a pen-
guin.
"Sometimes they'll get up and
walk like I walk," she said. "It's
cute in some ways and sad in
others. I've been through all the
emotions you can feel just
trying to make memories."
Taylor said the efforts of her
granddaughters have served
as an inspiration as she battles
cancer.
'They're the ones that make
me fight like I do to keep on,"
she said. "They're the ones that

Adopted kids mini-ambassadors



when Lunar New Year arrives


By Leanne Italie
Associated Press
NEW YORK With its
fireworks, family reunions
and feasts, Lunar New Year
is the longest and most
important celebration for
millions around the world.
For kids adopted from
China, it holds special mean-
ing. Lunar New Year makes
them mini-ambassadors of
a culture they know little
about firsthand.
There's no official hand-
book on how far parents of
internationally adopted chil-
dren should go to'celebrate
their kids' birth cultures,
but marking Lunar New
Year Year of the Dragon
begins Jan. 23 is usually
one of those times for Asian
children.
Their parents decorate
front doors, throw dump-
ling-making parties and
stuff red envelopes with
money. They clean their
homes at the start of the
15-day celebration and hang
red lanterns at the finish..
Others keep it simple, shar-
ing dim sum with friends
at a restaurant or watching
dragons dancing at parades
in Chinese enclaves in their
cities and towns.
The approach shifts and
changes as their children
grow. Some question wheth-
er they've done enough.
Some do nothing at all.
"In south Louisiana, we're
definitely ambassadors to
the Chinese culture," said

now that she's a little older,
we mainly talk about China,
its history and customs, and
even its politics so that she
can try and wrap her head
around why she's here.
She's a deep thinker."
Karen Burgers in north-
ern New Jersey has two
girls from China, ages
10 and 5. They wear silk
Chinese dresses and nibble
vegetable lo mein, oranges
and fortune cookies she
brings in to school for the
new year.
"I've certainly failed to
promote an authentic expe-
rience," Burgers said, "but
the children get the gist,
enjoy the festivity and learn
a little about the culture.".
Rich Patterson and his


wife are in Vancouver,
British Columbia, home to
a Chinese New Year parade
that drew more than 50,000
people last year. The holi-
day, which reunites families
around the world, does the
same for the Pattersons. .
They take in the parade
and share dim sum with
six other local families
with whom they traveled
to China to pick up their
babies. Patterson's daugh-
ter is now 4 1/2.
'"This year, as a first, we
fused Christmas decorations
with Chinese New Year dec-
orations at our daughter's
request," he said.
That meant a bright red

front and center above their
mantel.
The symbolism and
superstitions surrounding
the new year are steeped
in more than 5,000 years of
Chinese history. Here's a
sampler of popular customs
among parents looking to
celebrate the birth cultures
of their adopted kids.
CHINESE ZODIAC:
The dragon is the fifth and
mightiest position in the
Chinese Zodiac. For adopt-
ed kids, knowing one's birth.
animal is a casual connec-
tion, though the convoluted
zodiac includes many other
elements taken far more
seriously in Asia. ,
."My kids love to hear
about the Chinese Zodiac,"
said Heather Mayes
Gleason in Takoma Park,
Md. She has a 5-year-old
girl from China and a bio-


logical 3-year-old son.
"With Chinese adoption,
you know very little about
your child's history, but you
create their future. And I
guess that is really what
Chinese New Year is about,"
Gleason said.
CLEANING HOUSE:
Before the new year, sweep
away any bad luck from the
previous year. Hair. is cut
before the new year and
children wear new clothes
to represent a new begin-
ning.
For. Myra Cocca in cen-
tral Indiana, it's harder as
her kids have grown older
and busier to observe the
traditions they loved when
they were small. Her son,
adopted from South Korea,
is now 11. When' he was
little, she dressed him in a
traditional garment called
a hanbok for new year's.
Today, "sometimes we're
not home during the holi-
day, so we have not always
marked the occasion," she
said.
RED: The color is promi-
nent in banners bearing
holiday sayings in Chinese
letters and decorative paper
cutouts placed on doors and
windows to scare away evil
spirits and bad luck, along
with gold and orange to
symbolize wealth and hap-
piness in the year to come.
Lucky red envelopes with
crisp new bills are given
to children. Some parents
slip in candy instead. Risher
has taken the color red fur-
ther than most: "I've given
everyone in my family red
underwear!" ,
DUMPLINGS: Crescent-
shaped dumplings are eaten
ahead of New Year's Day in
China. In northern China,
they are prepared for mid-
night nibbling the night
before. The shape evokes
coins in ancient China and
eating the dumplings is a
bid for good financial tid-


ings.
How does Piper, Risher's
10-year-old, feel about
dumplings and celebrating,
the new year? "I come from
China and it's important
to me that our family still
celebrates some of my cul-
ture, too," she said. '"That's
where I'm from."
LONG NOODLES: The
longer the better to fos-)
ter a long life. New year's
food traditions vary wide-
ly around the world, but
main dishes of fish, duck
or chicken are prepared
whole because using scis-
sors and knives is consid-
ered unlucky. That means
pasta is uncut. It's become a
rallying cry for some in the
adoption community: "Long
noodles, long life!"
FIREWORKS: Many
ancient beliefs exist about
why fireworks play a major
role in the new year. One is
that loud noise scares away
evil spirits and bad luck.
That's why Burgers brings
sheets of bubble wrap to
her kids' school. '"The bub-
ble wrap is loudly stomped
upon as the children parade
around the room wearing a
dragon head costume."
LANTERN FESTIVAL:
The 15th day of the new
year is marked by parties
where decorative red lan-
terns are hung indoors and
out. Lantern making proj-
ects are a cottage industry
for adoptive families online.
Kate Eastman and her
husband recently moved
from Maine to Anacortes,
Wash., so their '9-year-
old daughter from China
could be closer to authentic
Asian influences within an
hour's travel to Vancouver
or Seattle. Lantern making
is one of those things they
love to do.
Cali's room is also full of
Chinese dolls, 'books arid
other reminders of her heri-
tage.

DEAR ABBY


Common courtesy turns drive-

DEAR ABBY: I hope you
can help me pass along
some tips on drive-through
etiquette to your readers. J
work in the fast food industry,
and on behalf of my fellow
workers, may I dish out the
following:
Please have a general idea
of what you'd like BEFORE
you reach'the speaker. The
corporate office has us on a
timer, which starts ticking as
soon as you pull up.
Please be patient We know
you're tired of waiting behind
the car ahead of you, but
we're trying our best to make
sure you get quality food.
If you have a large order or
a special request, please come
inside to order if possible.
The people in the car behind,
you are waiting for their food,
too.
Speak clearly (but don't
yell!) into the speaker. Also,
although it may seem cute to
you, I can barely understand
your 4-year-old when she asks
Sme for her kiddie meal.
If you can't hear yourself
over your car radio, I can't
either. But if you're talking on
your cellphone or to someone
in your vehicle, I CAN hear
you and I've heard some
wild stuff.
If it's raining, please turn
off your windshield wipers
before you reach my window.
Otherwise, I get splashed.
Finally, PLEASE treat me
with respect! Yes, I know I

will be taken to heart because
it deserves to be. Personnel
in the food service business
often must deal with cus-

stressed, hungry and more
- but that's no excuse to

to which I would add that
"please" and "thank you" are
always appreciated.
Now, may I please have a

Thank you.

me to make my paycheck

at the store and had just
enough money between my
bank card, my cash and loose
change to buy a small bottle
of laundry detergent. Well,
my bank card was declined.
Abby, I was mortified. Near
tears, I told the cashier to go.
ahead and cancel my pur-
chase. Just then, the woman
behind me set some money
on the register to cover it. I
thanked her.
This woman, a complete
stranger, helped to pick up

may never see again. How
many people would do that?
I'd like to think it'skarma for

Complex issues

in disabled girl

transplant request


By Kevin Begos and
Matt Moore
Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA The
parents of a 3-year-old New
Jersey girl say she's being
denied a kidney transplant
because of her mental dis-
abilities, but experts caution
the situation may be much
more complex.
The girl's mother, Chrissy
Rivera, last week posted a
blog entry that described
an encounter she claimed
happened at The Children's
Hospital of Philadelphia. She
said she was there to discuss
treatment for her daughter,
Amelia, who was born with
Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome,
a rare genetic defect that can
cause physical and mental
disabilities.
Rivera wrote that a doctor,
whom she did not name, told
her and her husband, Joe
Rivera, that Amelia wouldn't
be eligible for a transplant
because of her quality of life
and her mental condition.
"I put my hand up. 'Stop
talking for a minute. Did
you just say, that Amelia
shouldn't have the transplant
done because she is mentally
retarded. I am confused. Did
you really just say that?"' she
wrote. "I begin to shake. My
whole body trembles and he
begins to tell me how she
will never be able to get on
the waiting list because she
is mentally retarded."
Rivera's story was seen by
Sunday Stilwell, the mother
of two severely autistic boys,
and she began an online peti-
tion last Friday, demanding
that the hospital give a trans-
plant to the girl. By Tuesday
night, more than 23,700 peo-
ple had signed it
"I read Chrissy's original
blog post, and I just cried.
I couldn't believe it," said
Stilwell, whose. boys are 6
arid 9. "I shared it on Twitter
with all my followers and on
Facebook."
Children's Hospital said


in a statement that it "does
not disqualify potential trans-
plant candidates on the basis
of intellectual abilities."
"We have transplanted
many children with a wide
range of disabilities, includ-
ing physical and intellectual
disabilities," it said, adding
that it is "deeply committed"
to providing the best possible
medical care for all children,
including those with disabili-
ties.
The hospital did not com-
ment further, citing patient
confidentiality laws.
Stilwell has been in contact
with Rivera daily over the
events.
"There's a lot of camara-
derie" between parents of
special-needs kids, Stilwell
said. "Almost all of us, across
the board, have experienced
some discrimination. I've cer-
tainly had some bad run-ins
with some certainly ignorant
doctors, but nothing like this.
That's part of the reason I did
it I couldn't actually believe
this was happening."
Messages seeking com-
ment from the Riveras
through Facebook and to
their home were left Tuesday
but were not immediately
returned.
The issue the Riveras face
is not simple, said Arthur
Caplan, director of the
University of Pennsylvania
Center for Bioethics.
For example, the blog
notes that Rivera told the hos-
pital that "we plan on donat-
ing" the kidney, since they
come from a large family.
"Most adults can't donate
an organ, because it won't fit"
a child, Caplan said. "You're
starting to say you're going
to use another child as a liv-
ing donor, and thafs ethically
really trouble."
The supply of organs for
child transplants is "extreme-
ly limited," Caplan added.
"So you have hard choices
to make," he said. "Dialysis
may be a better option."


Roval on fascinators

Cr at Ascot


Crackdown racecourse


Whimsical
headwear pieces
banned from
social event
By Raphael Satter

LONDON They're good
enough for the former Kate
Middleton, but apparently
not good enough for her hus-
band's grandmother, Queen
Elizabeth II.
Fascinators the delicate,
whimsical pieces of headwear
favored by the young and posh
in Britain and beyond have
been banned from the royal
enclosure at Royal Ascot, one
of the most exclusive events in
Britain's social calendar.
Organizers said Wednesday
that those hoping to rub shoul-
ders with the queen at the
horse racing meet would have
to stick to hats, no fascinators.
Ifs the latest in a series of
rules aimed at tightening the
dress code at Ascot, where
organizers have tried to push
back against the proliferation
of provocative outfits, outra-
geous accessories and reveal-
ing tops.
Other rules introduced or
reinforced Wednesday include
the requirement that women
at the royal enclosure wear
dresses that fall below the
knee and that the men accom-
panying them must wear a top
hat (gray or black).
The queen can wear what-
ever she wants, but the guide-
lines affect the royal enclosure,
which usually includes a few '
hundred invited guests, not
just the royal family.
Some of the rules no
bare midriffs or strapless
dresses for example fall in.

by banning fascinators, small hats, from the royal enclosure. New rules put out by organiz-
ers Wednesday Jan 18 2012 are the latest in a series of changes and clarifications, put out
by those behind the super-elite horse racing event held each June. Other rules introduced or
reinforced Wednesday include the requirement that women must wear hats and clarify that
dresses must fall below the knee.,


line with organizers' attempts
to roll back the nouveau-riche
nightclub look, but fascinators
are favored by the highest
reaches of the upper-crust
The headgear can consist of
flowers, fabric, feathers, lace,
netting, or just about anything
else that catches the eye and
matches the dress. Unlike
hats, which generally just sit
on the wearer's head, fascina-


tors tend to be smaller and are
often fastened using barrettes
or headbands.
Kate Middleton, nowknown
as the Duchess of Cambridge,
is a fan her repeat outings
with feathery, frothy accou-
terments last year reportedly
sparked a British sales surge.
So too are princesses Beatrice
and Eugenie and other fash-
ion-forward royals.


Nick Smith, Ascofs head
of communication, acknowl-
edged that "there is an argu-
ment that some fascinators are
formal."
"But the very fact that there
is that argument" was reason
enough to ban them from the
royal' enclosure where the
queen gathers with the cream
of British aristocracy to watch
the races.
