Pit bulls

in pony

attack

returned

to owner

Felony charges will
be filed should the
dogs escape again.

By GORDON JACKSON
gjackson@lakecityreporter. com
After two pit bulls nearly
killed a pony Nov. 19 in
Lake City, the dogs' owner
promised they would never
escape again if animal con-
trol authorities returned his
pets.
Now, Steven Baisden will
have a chance to prove he
can keep his dogs confined
to his property.
Columbia County Animal
Control officials returned
Calli and Bandit to Baisden
last week after he waived
his rights to a hearing that
would have determined
their fate. By doing so,
the dogs were automati-
cally classified dangerous
animals and released to
Baisden after he paid more
than $1,400 in fees and
agreed to strict stipulations,
said Dale Griffin, supervi-
sor of Columbia County
Animal Control.

Debris and wreckage lie along the highway after a multi-vehicle accident that killed 10 people on Interstate 75 n

By MIKE SCHNEIDER

GAINESVILLE Conditions
were clear enough when authori-
ties decided to reopen a section
of Interstate 75 where 10 people
were later killed in two pileups
amid thick smoke from a 62-acre -
brushfire and fog, the Florida
Highway Patrol said Monday.
"We went through the area. We
made an assessment. We came to
the conclusion that the road was
safe to travel and that is when
we opened the road up," high-
way patrol spokesman Lt. Patrick
Riordan said in a news confer-
ence.

Riordan said. "Drivers have to

When asked about why the

said: "I'm not going to play a what-

Smoke,
fog will
persist
locally

By LAURA HAMPSON
Ihampson@lakecityreporter. corn
Dense, low-lying
smoke and fog may
cause dangerous driving
conditions this morn-
ing.
S Smoke from a pre-
scribed burn in the
Osceola National Forest
is hanging low to the
ground due to a high
pressure system cur-
rently over the area, said
Kurt Wisner, Florida
Forest Service informa-
tion officer and mitiga-
tion specialist.
RESS Smoky conditions
ville will exist until another
weather front moves
through on Wednesday
or Thursday, he said.
High, pressure sys-
tems, which cause
bright blue skies, pre-
vent smoke from rising;
causing it to stay close to
the ground and spread
horizontally. Smoke, like
water, seeks the lowest
point so smoke will be
heaviest in low-lying
areas, Wisner said.
The prescribed burn
was started Thursday
and covers about 1,000
acres. Wisner said fires
in the area are under
control, but area smoke
can create road haz-
ards.
Florida Highway
Patrol issued advisories
Monday for possible
smoke on northbound
1-75 in Columbia County
due to a fire burning on
near US 41.
FHP also issued an
advisory for Hamilton
s County where a fire is
burning Stephen Foster
Folk Culture Center on
US 41, west 'of Bridge
Street.
What to do
If you see smoke while
driving turn on your low-
beam headlights and slow
down, he said. Motorists
should also use care and
common sense if driving
through smoke and fog.
If fog or smoke becomes
too thick and reduces vis-
ibility, drivers should pull
all the way off the road-
way and turn on emer-
gency flashers. To report
a dangerous situation,
ie dial *FHP or *347.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS


Friend claims Moore was convulsing


LOS ANGELES
Demi Moore smoked
something before she
was rushed to the hos-
pital on Monday night
and was convulsing and
"semi-conscious, barely," according
to a caller on a frantic 911 recording
released Friday by Los Angeles fire
officials.
The woman tells emergency
operators that Moore, 49, had been
"having issues lately."
"Is she breathing normal?" the
operator asks.
"No, not so normal. More kind of
shaking, convulsing, burning up,"
the friend said as she hurries to
Moore's side, on the edge of panic.
. The recording captures the 10
minutes it took paramedics to arrive
as friends gather around the col-
lapsed star and try to comfort her as
she trembles and shakes.
Another woman is next to Moore
as the dispatcher asks if she's
* responsive.
"Demi, can you hear me?" she
asks. "Yes, she's squeezing hands ...
She can't speak."
When the operator asks what
Moore ingested or smoked, the
friend replies, but the answer was
redacted.
"Some form of ... and then she
smoked something. I didn't really
see. She's been having some issues
lately with some other stuff. So I
don't know what she's been taking
or not," the friend said. .
The city attorney's office advised
the fire department to redact details
about medical conditions and sub-
stances to comply with federal medi-
cal privacy rules.

TALLAHASSEE -
An appellate court has
reversed a man's burglary
of a dwelling conviction
because the bicycle he
allegedly tried to take was
actually parked on a mulch
bed.
A three-judge panel of
the First District Court of
Appeal ruled unanimously
on Monday.
Florida's definition of
dwelling'includes attached
porches. The bike was
on mulch covered by an
overhang outside the
front door of a townhouse.
Prosecutors argued the
mulch bed should be con-
sidered an attached porch.

TRANSIT: Local agency says it's getting its footing financially
Continued From Page 1A


there were excessive trip purchases and
lack of training for staff. The organization
also failed to apply for grants to cut down
operating expenses. Many routes were los-
ing money each day.
Since new management took over opera-
tions last summer, debt owed to vendors has
been cut from more than $609,000 in August
to about $281,000.
'We had no record what it cost on a day
to day basis," Steele said. "That will end
soon."
Overtime, about $10,000 a month, was a
big contributor to the debt, he said.
"Most of it was unjustified because it
was improperly managed," he said. The
organization is starting two worker shifts to
minimize overtime, he said.
All routes are being analyzed and justified
for cost. Those that can't be justified will be
eliminated, he said.
The authority is also working to improve
customer service. Transportation requests
will soon be done electronically, instead, of
by pencil and paper. Steele estimated it will
take employees no more than 90 seconds to
process a request, versus the eight minutes
it currently takes.
More than 20 new telephones will be
purchased to improve customer service.
Currently the office only has four phone
lines.


The rules and regulations governing
the organization and its employees will be
updated for the first time since 1983. All
employees can also expect personnel evalu-
ations to explain expectations from manage-
ment and customers.
The savings, individually, may not- seem
big, but collectively they will help the orga-
nization eliminate its debt and begin operat-
ing on a profit.
And, the organization is applying for
grants that will improve service in the three-
county region served by the authority.
"We do plan to make this an agency all
three counties can be proud of," Steele
said.
Commissioners from Columbia and
Hamilton counties who attended the meet-
ing expressed confidence the organization
is on the right path.
Pra said the agency will run by the rules
created when the transit authority was cre-
ated more than two decades ago. That
means only eligible riders will be allowed
on buses.
"If you have a car or other form of trans-
portation, you are not eligible," Pra said.
Columbia County commissioner Ron
Williams said he was unaware of the prob-
lems because he and other elected officials
serving on the transit authority's board of
directors were never told about the financial


problems until the organization was deep
in debt.
"We got caught off guard," he said.
'We never saw. any critical reports. This
board never saw those findings by D.O.T.
[Department of Transportation], whatso-
ever."
Commissioners from Suwannee County
didn't attend the meeting, but officials from
Columbia and Hamilton counties offered
to sell fuel at bulk rates as a way to save
the authority money. They also asked how
much money is needed' to retire the debt
and give the authority the cushion needed to
pay its debts to vendors in a timely manner.
It's possible they may consider loaning the
authority they money, commissioners said.
"They need to get paid," Columbia County
commissioner Jody DuPree said. "I want to
see them get paid."
Pra agreed to provide a detailed account-
ing of the authority's debt and how much is
needed for a reserve fund.
Williams vowed to scrutinize the authori-
ty's finances more in the future to ensure no
more problems occur.
"This happened under my watch and I
don't like it," he said. "As a board member,
I didn't have enough insight to know what's
going on. I appreciate those vendors hang-
ing in there."


FHP: Governor launches probe into deadly 1-75 pileup
Continued From Page 1A


some vehicles burst into flames. Three bod-
ies were so badly burned they haven't been
identified yet, he said.
Riordan on Monday evening confirmed
the names of four people who died in the
crash: Pastor Jose Carmo Jr., Adriana Carmo,
Leticia Carmo and Edson Carmo.
Jose and Adriana Carmo were married
and Leticia was their daughter, said Arao
Amzaonas, senior pastor at their church,
the Igreja Internacional da Restauracao, or
International Church of the Restoration.
The suburban Atlanta church, which
caters to the local Brazilian community, on
Monday evening gathered to mourn the
deaths of their church members.
Survivors said they couldn't see more
than a few feet ahead of them. When rescu-
ers first arrived to the crashes, they could
only listen for screams and moans because
the poor visibility made it difficult to find
victims in wreckage that was strewn for
nearly a mile.-
About midnight Sunday, the highway
patrol closed the section of 1-75 for more


than three hdurs after a pileup happened
when the highway became impassable from
fog and smoke from the nearby brushfire.
Troopers inspected the highway before
a sergeant and lieutenant made the deci-
sion to reopen 1-75 about 3:30 a.m., he said.
Fifteen minutes later, the fatal pileups began
on both the north and southbound sides of
the highway.
Riordan declined to release the two
troopers' names or provide details on their
careers with the highway patrol. He said no
troopers have been disciplined but the inves-
tigation into the crash continues. National
Transportation Safety Board officials said
Monday they are sending investigators to
the scene. They also will assess whether the
NTSB should-formally join the probe, which
is being led by the highway patrol.
Scott late Monday ordered the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement to inves-
tigate what happened before the accidents,
including the FHP's role. He said in a state-
ment the state will also fully cooperate with
any NTSB investigation.


In a 911 recording released Monday, a
driver and her passengers told a dispatcher
that the fog and smoke was so thick they
couldn't see.
"I think there was another accident behind
us because I'heard it," the woman said. "Oh
my gosh, it's so dark here."
Another caller then took the phone,
screaming an expletive as she hears another
crash.
"That was a truck. We cannot see. It's
like impossible to see," the caller said. "The
smoke, is very thick you can see obviously
only your hand in front. I do hear an ambu-
lance or police officer coming down the
road."
Hours later, twisted, burned-out vehicles
were scattered across the pavement, with
smoke still rising from the wreckage. Cars
appeared to have smashed into the big rigs
and, in one case, a motor home. Some cars
were crushed beneath the heavier trucks.
Reporters who were allowed to view the
site saw bodies still inside a burned-out
Grand Prix.


PONY: 'One-eared wonder' recovering after attack by dogs


Continued From Page 1A

"It's very risky because
he is liable for anything if
the dogs leave the prop-
erty," Griffin said. "It's a
felony if the dogs get out."
Another complaint
against the dogs will result
in an automatic death
sentence for the animals,
Griffin said.
Baisden paid $1,120 for
care given to his dogs dur-
ing the 61 days they were
held at the shelter. He was
also required to register the
dogs as dangerous animals
and pay an annual fee of
$150 for each animal. The
dogs were microchipped
for identification purposes.
He is required to post
warning signs at all entry
points near his home to
inform adults and children
about dangerous dogs on
the property.
Most other owners of
dangerous dogs choose to
turn their pets over to ani-
mal control rather than pay
registration fees, guarantee
the animals will remain
confined and risk a felony
conviction, Griffin said.
"Most of the time, they
turn them over j to us
because of the expense,"
he said. "Those dogs are
euthanized."
Animal control officers
will make unannounced
visits to Baisden's house to
check on the dogs' where-
abouts, Griffin said.
"We'll show up at dif-
ferent hours to make sure
we know where they are,"
he said.
Before their release, ani-
mal control officials visited
Baisden's home to see how
he plans to keep the dogs
confined. Griffin believes
the electric wire surround-
ing the compound will pre-
vent the dogs from escap-
ing.
"At no point will they be
able to get out of the yard,"
he said.
If the dogs are taken from
the property, Baisden must


keep them muzzled and on
leashes. And, if either or
both dogs are sold, Baisden
is required to provide all
contact information to ani-
mal control officials about
the new owner.
The same dangerous dog
label will remain with the
dogs, even if they move to
another jurisdiction within
the state. And the animal
control officer must be
notified if a dog classified
as dangerous moves into
the jurisdiction, according
to state law.
As for other damages,
such the injuries the pony
Tom-Tom sustained during
the attack as his 7-year-old
owner looked on, Griffin
said that's a civil matter
between Baisden and the
girl's parents, Sean and
Laurel Greene.
Baisden could not be
reached for comment.
Laurel Greene said she
wasn't surprised at the
decision.
"I kind of figured that's
what was going to hap-
pen," she said. "Hopefully,
he will be more respon-
sible with his dogs."
Greene said her family
has spent about $1,000 in
veterinarian bills. Tom-
Tom lost his left ear and

permanently.
"He's got scars," she
said. "You can see them
under his fur."
Greene said the law that
allowed Baisden to regain
custody of his dogs should
have a provision requiring
compensation for a dog
attack. She is considering
a civil lawsuit but wants to
talk to Baisden before she
takes that step.


"I haven't had any con-
tact with the owner," she
said. "I do plan to get reim-
bursed."
As for the pony, he has
recovered enough where
he recently went outside
for the first time since the
attack.
"He's still a little wary
going out there," she said.
'We call him our one-eared
wonder."

School


rankings


released

By LAURA HAMPSON
Ihampson@lakecityreporter.com

The Department of Education
released a ranking of all Florida public
schools based on scores on standard-
ized testing. Columbia County school
rankings varied widely.
The data released Monday ranks
all 3,078 traditional public and charter
schools with groupings by elementary,
middle and high schools.
Out of 1,795 elementary schools,
Westside ranked 250th, Pinemount
ranked 342nd, Columbia City and
Eastside tied at 545th, Fort White
ranked 778th, Melrose Park ranked
924th, Summers ranked 1,022nd, Five
Points ranked 1368th and Niblack
ranked 1552nd.
Out of 583 middle schools, Lake
City ranked 317th and Richardson
ranked 538th.
Out of 404 high schools, Columbia
ranked 272nd. Out of 55 combination
middle and high schools, Fort White
ranked 41st
The rankings are based off scores
on the Florida Comprehensive
AssessmentTest. Schools are awarded
one point for each percent of students
who score on grade level or higher on
the FCAT and make annual learning
gains. High schools are graded using
the same criteria, plus graduation
rates, postsecondary readiness, and
accelerated coursework participation
and performance. Non-FCAT based
components make up 50 percent of the
high school grade.
The department released a similar
ranking of school districts last week
Columbia County, a "B" district, ranked
48th out of 67 counties.
Gov. Rick Scott said the rankings
will help measure progress toward the
state's goal of ensuring students have
access to world-class schools.
The Florida Education Association,
the statewide teachers union, and oth-
ers have criticized the rankings, saying
schools can't be judged solely on test
scores and noting factors like students'
socio-economic status weren't taken
into account

OPINION


Global

warming's

'dirty

laundry'

Those who say man
alone is respon-
sible for overheat-
ing the planet
frequently dismiss
any role the sun might'play.
As can be seen in an ongoing
freedom-of-information lawsuit
leveled against the University
of Virginia (UVA), sunshine is
precisely what the heralds of
climate catastrophe fear most
of 'all.
The American Tradition
Institute (ATI) is going after
12,000 emails sent or received
by Michael E. Mann while he
was on the staff of the publicly-
funded university. Mr. Mann is.
famous for coming up with one
of the "tricks" used to "hide the
decline" in global temperatures.
On Wednesday, ATI released
a small selection of emails it
hopes will convince a Prince
William County judge that full
disclosure of the rest is in the
public interest.
Mr. Mann insists disclosure
would have a chilling effect.
"Allowing the indiscriminate
release of these materials will
cause damage to reputations
and harm principles of aca-
demic freedom," he wrote in an
August letter to UVA.
As important as it is to pro-
tect Mr. Mann's feelings from
being hurt trillions of dollars
are at stake with climate-policy..
decisions being made based on
his work. From cap-and-trade
to the Kyoto treaty, it's not
enough to make a choice based
solely on a trust that this secre-
tive cabal of climate scientists is
telling the truth. The taxpayers
paid Mr. Mann; they deserve to
know exactly what they were .
getting for their money.
So far, the Climategate
disclosures have unmasked
shQddy methods in service of
a leftist public-policy agenda.
Compelling release of all com-
munications dirty laundry
and all is the only way to
provide the full context. Let
an informed public decide on
its own whether they've been
hoodwinked by charlatans, or
that the sky really is falling.

Obama's vision


puts America last


rThe theme that
President Barack
Obama gave to his
State of the Union
address was "An
America Built to Last."
But his vision would be better
described as "An America.Built
to Be Last."
As the president asked us to
be patient and keep drinking
the same Kool-Aid he's been.
serving up for three years, The
New York Times reported that
the Federal Reserve's latest
assessment of our. economy is
that".... a full recovery is years
away."
.Even his most loyal constitu-
enrcy black Americans is los-
inkpatience. In Gallup's latest
tracking poll, the black approval
rate for Obama was 79 percent
This is 17 points below the 96
percent of blacks who voted for
him in 2008, and the first time
that black approval has dropped
under 80 percent.
The debate will go on for
many years about what caused
the horrible economic collapse
from which we are still trying to
recover.
The president continues to
sell the idea, which serves his
agenda to continue to expand
government, that the cause was
insufficiently regulated busi-
ness.
There is much convincing
research, in which Obama
shows little interest, that gov-
ernment caused it by mandating
the expansion of low-quality
mortgages and enabling this
expansion because taxpayers


Star Parker
parket@urbancure.org
ultimately guaranteed these
loans.
But economists are still
debating what caused the Great
Depression of the 1930s.
What Americans must come
to terms with now is what we
choose to believe this country is
about, why in the past it seemed
to work so well and why today
things are falling apart.
According to the president,
"everything will be OK if we
allow him and his government
to continue to build and consoli-
date power over our lives.
He gave more reasons to
grow government but barely
gave lip service to what is tear-
ing our nation apart today and
dragging it down.
The major factors driving us
into insolvency the spend-
ing on entitlement programs
Social Security, Medicare and
Medicaid and covering the
interest on our nation's debt,
which is now surpassing the
size of oour entire economy got
attention in two sentences in an
hour-plus-long speech.
The unraveling of our social
fabric doesn't seem to bother
our president a whit.
You 'would think our nation's


leader would be concerned that,
today, four of every 10 of our
babies are born to unwed moth-
ers. .
According to a new poll from
the Kaiser Family Foundation,
54 percent of respondents
feel that the Supreme Court
should find unconstitutional the
Obamacare mandate forcing
every American to buy govern-
ment-defined health insurance.
Only 17 percent agree with this
flagrant violation of individual
freedom.
Now the Department of
Health and Human Services has
ruled that religious institutions
must, like all other employ-
ers under the new health law,,
provide free birth control and
sterilization services as part of
health coverage.
Catholic universities and
charitable organizations are now
left with the choice of violating
their religious convictions, not
offering health insurance and
pay millions of dollars in fines,
or just shut down.
Catholic charities serve over
10 million of America's poor.
Diminished freedom and
moral relativism is no way out of
the morass we're in.
An America built on govern-
ment, as Obama sees it, severed
from our roots as a free people
under God, is surely an America
built to be last

Iran, the Middle East


and crucial U.S. role


In 'The Tempest," a tale
of fantasy, hatred and
intrigue, but ultimate suc-
cess by a leader, Williams
Shakespeare penned the
immortal line, "What's past is
prologue." The line is worth
remembering when considering
Middle East matters.
The mullahs ruling funda-
mentalist Iran threaten to close
the Strait of Hormuz, disrupting
world oil traffic. Simultaneously,
they enrich uranium, essential
prologue to manufacture of
nuclear weapons.
The danger of a nuclear-
armed Iran greatly reinforces
ongoing overheated rhetoric
from Tehran about destroying
Israel. The United Nations, in
reaction, has imposed economic
sanctions with teeth.
In the increasingly charged
atmosphere, the United States
plays an even more pivotal
role than usual, while facing
particular severe challenges
in the military as well as dip-
lomatic spheres. The U.S. has
unequaled tangible military
power, along with considerable
indirect influence given the size
and reach of our economy, but


Arthur Cyr
cyr@carthoge.edu
this coexists with important
limitations.
Given this background and
current severe tensions, the
recent observations of Dennis
Ross are important An unusually
knowledgeable and dedicated
public servant he has served in
both Democratic and Republican
administrations, including
President Obama's National
Security Council. No Arab apolo-
gist he is accurately seen as com-
mitted to Israel's security.
Ross recently noted Iran gen-
erally has demonstrated realism
in actual behavior, as opposed
to rhetoric. Leaders tend to
evaluate odds of success, and
act accordingly. This means the
substantial and growing costs of
the international' sanctions may
over time bring about more rea-
sonable attitudes on the part of


Tehran's leaders.'
Iran has also shown restraint
in using armed force. During
the long costly war with Iraq,
Iran suffered attacks of weapons
of mass destruction without
responding in kind. The regime
is militantly opposed to drug
trafficking, and partly for this
reason has aided the govern-
ment of Afghanistan.
Fortunately, disrupting ship-
ping in the Strait of Hormuz is
much more easily threatened
than achieved. During the tense
1980s, the Reagan administra-
tion provided Kuwaiti tankers
with U.S. flags and U.S. war-
ship escorts. This led to fitful
armed conflict and in 1988 the
tragic mistaken destruction of
an Iran civilian aircraft by this
USS Vincennes, but no serious
reduction in oil shipping.
Carter also initiated the gruel-
ing but successful Camp David
negotiations, which resulted in
the durable Egypt-Israel peace
treaty. In that case, he demon-
strated that a history of intense
conflict could be prologue to
more peaceful relations.

ANOTHER
VIEW


Leave


NOAA


where


it is


This month President'
Barack Obama ,
restored authority
that was allowed to
lapse in the Reagan
years that would allow him to
reorganize federal agencies to
eliminate overlapping and dupli-
cate functions. He brought up
the proposal again in his State of
the Union address.
His first step would.be to
consolidate a group of econom-
ic agencies in the Department
of Commerce and this reshuf-
fling and streamlining makes
bureaucratic sense. But part
of the plan does not. He would,
move the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
from its longstanding home in
Commerce to the Department
of the Interior.
Most of the agencies up
for consolidation focus on
trade, business and economic
growth. NOAA focuses on
none of this. Instead, NOAA
forecasts the weather, protects
marine fisheries, monitors the
oceans and coastal zones and
conducts pure oceanographic
and atmospheric research, and
by all accounts performs these
functions very well.
NOAA is, so to speak, a big
fish at Commerce, accounting
for 60 percent of the depart-
ment's budget The agency
would be considerably dimin-
ished in stature if it were sub-
sumed into the much larger
Interior Department.
The Obama administration
has yet to say how NOAA would
fit into Commerce's table of
organization or potential turf
conflicts would be resolved.
NOAA is charged with keeping
the oceans and fisheries healthy;
Interior regulates offshore oil
drilling; a regulatory function it
badly botched in the case of the
BP oil spill.
Moreover, because of its
regulatory purview over the
extraction industries and
federal lands the Interior
Department is susceptible to
considerable political meddling
from Congress and the White
House. There were several
embarrassing incidents dur-
ing the Bush administration;
political appointees pressured
the department's scientists to'
change or suppress findings
that conflicted with administra-
tion dogma, particularly with
regard to global warming.
What makes sense on
paper doesn't always work
in practice. Starting in 1979,
the Federal Emergency
Management Administration
was an independent agency,
finally achieving Cabinet status
with the attendant boost in
morale and sense of mission.
In 2003 FEMA was stuffed
several layers down in the
new Department of Homeland
Security and, between its dimin-
ished status and the political
hacks appointed to run it, thor-
oughly bungled the Hurricane
Katrina disaster in the Gulf.
Supporters of Obama's reor-
ganization plan argue that it
is only by accident NOAA and
its National Weather Service
remain at Commerce. In the
1970s, President Richard
Nixon had planned to move
them to Interior but Nixon
reversed himself in a fit of
pique at Interior's then secre-
tary, Walter Hickel.
In fact the Weather Service
has been at Commerce since

Morgan Silver Dollars Minted 1878 to 1921
The Recent pull back in Price is Your Chance to Buy Low!


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

Polls open 7 a.m. to
7 p.m. in Columbia,
throughout state.

By THOMAS BEAUMONT
Associated Press

MIAMI Cheered by
new polls, Mitt Romney is
all but predicting victory
in Tuesday's Republican
presidential primary.
Newt Gingrich is looking
past Florida to 'regroup,
vowing he won't stay bur-
ied long.
"With a turnout like
this, I'm beginning to feel
we might win tomorrow,"
an upbeat Romney told
a crowd of several hun-
dred at a stop in Dunedin,
on Monday as he and
Gingrich zipped across
the state making their'
final appeals.
Gingrich, in turn,
acknowledged that his
momentum had been
checked but promised not
to back down. He char-
acterized Romney as an
imposter, and his team,
started to plot a strategy
for upcoming contests.
"He can bury me for a
very short amount of time.
with four or five or six
times as much mbney,"
Gingrich said in a televi-.
sion interview. "In the long
run, the Republican Party
is not going to nominate
... a liberal Republican."

"We are your business advocate
organization and we pledge to
continue to be highly visible and
highly effective in our community,"
Wilson said. At four minutes and ..
28 seconds, he said his speech was 4
the shortest given by an incoming
president. .
"We are so appreciative of every-
one that came out and supported -
us," said Dennille Decker, chamber
executive director. "We couldn't do it
without all of our sponsors."
Decker said she doesn't yet have
fundraising totals, as the chamber
is still working on invoices. The
silent auction raised $6,000, more
than double from last year, she
said. Use of a beach condominium,
donated by Bob and Linnie Jordan,
and Civil War pictures donated by
Dennis Roberts were the highest
selling items, she said.
Pro Motion Physical Therapy was
the highest bidder on the "Chamber
Champion" traveling trophy. The
gator head's name, "Pat," is short
for Alpata or Halpata, Seminole
words for Alligator which was Lake
City's early name. "'Pat' set a good
foundation to start the tradition," Partygoers Keith Brown (from left), Donna Brown, Third Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Leandra Johnson, Robert Chasteen, Rita Swisher and Richard
Decker said. Johnson take to the dance floor during the 2nd Annual Chamber Ball on Saturday.

Djokovic's



streak over


Nadal hits 7


Finals victory
in Australia sets
endurance mark.
By CAROLINE CHEESE
Associated Press
M E L B U-R N E .
Australia iNo,)vak
Djokovic has that unbeat-
able feeling.
And well he should.
The Serb outlasted
Rafael Nadal to defend his
Australian Open title in the
longest ever Grand Slam
final and become the fifth
man to win three straight
majors in the Open Era.
Djokovic now has the
French Open the one
major to elude him in
his sights. He won't even
rule out the ultimate: the
Grand Slam.
"One player (Rod Laver)
has done it, so it is pos-
sible," he said after the
traditional post-victory
photo shoot in a down-
town Melbourne park on
Monday. "Obviously the
times are different and ten-
nis nowadays is much more
competitive and much
more physical. And that
-makes that challenge more
difficult to achieve. But
everything is possible."
With the London
Olympics to follow
Wimbledon this year,
Djokovic could even make
it a Golden Slam by win-
ning the gold -medal at
London 2012 to go with
the four majors.
"The facts are that I'm
at the peak of my career,"
Djokovic said. "I feel phys-


ically and mentally at the
peak, I feel strong, I feel
motivated, I feel eager to
win more trophies."
Djokovic completed
a 5-hour, 53-minute 5-7,
6-4, 6-2, 6-7 (5), 7-5 victory
over Nadal at 1:37 a.m.
- ending an epic match
with a forehand %winner
that finally finished off the
Spaniard.
He defied exhaustion to
tear off his shirt and flex
his bare torso as he made
his way to celebrate with
friends and family. He was
still doing interviews after
4 a.m.
A historic final provided
a fitting climax to a men's
tournament that also fea-
tured riveting semifinals
between Nadal and No.
3-ranked Roger Federer,
and Djokovic and No. 4
Murray.,
Tournament director
Craig Tiley, celebrating
a record attendance of
686,006 over two weeks,;
described the final as
"the greatest match of all
time."
A day after earning
her first Grand Slam title,
even Victoria Azarenka
came out to 'watch the
men's final. The 22-year-
old Belarusian needed 82
minutes -' two minutes
more than the first set
lasted between Nadal and
Djokovic to rout Maria
Sharapova and claim both
the trophy and the No. 1
ranking.
Djokovic's seventh
straight win in a final over
Nadal underlined his dom-
inance of the men's game.

DEAR ABBY


Emailed photo of ailing mom

is reason to restrict visitors


DEAR ABBY: Recently
my 80-year-old mother was
admitted to the hospital,
gravely ill. She had been
undergoing chemotherapy
and caught double pneu-
monia. My 36-year-old
niece went to visit Mama,
took pictures of her lying
in her hospital bed and
emailed the photos to
everyone.
It was shocking and
upsetting seeing my moth-
er this way. Many of the
people who received the
photos had not been able
to visit her. Abby, what's
your opinion on this, and
how should it have been
handled? SINCERELY
UPSET IN FLORIDA
DEAR SINCERELY
UPSET: I don't blame you
for being upset What your
niece did was a gross inva-
sion of privacy. Is this how
your mother would have
wanted people to see her?
If the answer is no, your
niece owes your mother an
apology.
If your mother is still
hospitalized, talk to the
nurse in charge of the unit
she's in and give her a list
of visitors who should have
access to her. Explain why
you want visitation restrict-
ed, and in the future your
mother's privacy will be
assured.

DEAR ABBY: My
sister's husband died sud-
denly three years ago.
"Pamela" now says she's
in love with a 60-year-old
man I'll call "Mickey,"


Abigail Van Buren
www.deorabby.com
whose company is dping
construction work on her
home. She has put on a
new roof, siding and added
a deck, and the jobs are
not ending. Next on the
schedule is a shed and a
new coat of paint for the
inside of the house.
Friends and family are*
concerned that Pamela is
scheduling more jobs as a
way to see Mickey. When
I pointed out that he hasn't
even invited her out for cof-
fee, she claimed they have
a "'relationship"' because
he hugged her, kissed her
on the cheek and told her,
"You're my girlfriend."
Pamela has invited
Mickey to family dinners
and events, but he turns
her down because "he's
visiting relatives out of
town." He has never invit-
ed her to go anywhere.
My sister should be
ready to date now, but no
one lives up to this man.
None of us have met him,,
and we're worried she is
just imagining there's a
relationship. What can we
do before Pamela goes
broke or crashes emotion-
ally? SOMETHING'S
MISSING IN NEW
JERSEY '


DEAR SOMETHING'S
MISSING: Do you know
the name of Mickey's
company? Start checking
him out. Does he have
a contractor's license?
A Facebook page? Does
anybody in the lumber or
paint business know him?
Something does seem
fishy. Mickey may be mar-
ried and your sister may
be grasping at straws. But
when all is said and done,
it is her money.

DEAR ABBY: I am a
12-year-old girl who needs
your advice. My friend
and I went shopping a
while back and she lent
me money to buy a few
things. However, later that
day she lost the bag that
had my stuff in it at the
mall. One day she brought.
up that I have not paid
her back, but I said I don't
think I should have to pay
her back since she lost the
stuff she bought for me.
Who'do you think is right?
NEEDS ADVICE IN
OAKLAND, CALIF
DEAR NEEDS ADVICE:
You are. She's out the
money; you're out the
"goods." You're even.
However, from now on
when you buy something,
take responsibility for it and
keep it in your possession.
That way, if something is
lost, you will have no one to
blame but yourself.

ARIES (March 21-April
19): Accept the inevitable.
Avoid anyone bragging
or trying to push you into
something that doesn't
suit your needs. Don't let
a problem with someone
else fester. Get things out
in the open so you can
move forward. ***
TAURUS (April 20-May,
20): You have to watch out
for trick questions or being
roped into doing some-
thing that will overextend
you mentally, physically or
financially. Exercise and
getting into a healthier
lifestyle will lift your spirits
and bring you greater con-
fidence. ***
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Think first, and fol-
low up by taking action.
Impulsiveness will hold
you back, but a well
thought-out plan will help
you gain momentum and
success. Don't allow an
emotional relationship to
stifle your plans. ***
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Ask for a favor and
you will be able to make
changes at home and stick
to a budget you can afford.
A unique partnership can
help you get ahead.'Let
your emotions manifest in
a passionate display of feel-
ings for someone special.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

Easy does it Make chang-
es, but take baby steps to
ensure that-you don't go
over budget Closely guard
your emotions and your,
bank card. Do whatever'
needs to be done without
complaining, and rewards
will be yours. **
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
,22): Get out and about. A
short trip or discussing,
plans with someone you
like to spend time with will
pay off. You can build a
strong connection and find
new ways to partner with
people who share your
interests. *****
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct
22): Put more emphasis
on saving, not spending.
The more you do to secure
your future and stabilize
your assets, the more free-
dom you will have to excel
in the future. Avoid anyone
trying to sell you a risky
investment. ***
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): Proceed with caution.
Friends, relatives and
just about everyone you
encounter will be looking
to put blame elsewhere.
Don't be the scapegoat.
Protect your integ-
rity, assets and personal
belongings. Creative proj-


ects are your best outlet.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-
Dec. 21): Don't agree to do
too much for nothing. You
have to set a standard that
will help you get ahead,
not one that will allow you
to be taken advantage of.
Strive to offer a service
that is in demand. ***
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Stay on top
of your plans. Don't leave
anything to chance, and
avoid anyone who tries to
infringe on your generos-
ity. Your hard work will
pay off, and you are the
one who should-benefit,
not someone who is along
for the ride. *****
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
18): Helping others can
make you feel good, but if
you are taken for granted,
the loss will end up being
emotionally costly. Stick
to what you know and feel
comfortable doing. Plan
your strategy and stick to
your plans. **.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Put more thought into
your plans for the future.
A practical approach to an
idea you have will help you
raise the support you need
