Lives intersect on deadly stretch of road

There was a single mom who
loved to dance, in the car with
a boyfriend who had moved
from Virginia to be with her.

family, originally from Brazil, returning

home to Georgia from an Orlando church

The 11 lives were so diverse that the
groups probably wouldn't have encoun-

Killer of Fla. girl found in landfill gets life

Associated Press
Fla. Minutes after a man
pleaded guilty to kidnapping,
raping and murdering 7-year-
old Somer Thompson, who
was dumped in a trash bin
and later found in a landfill,
the little girl's twin brother
addressed his sister's killer.
"You know you did this,
and now you're going to jail,"
9-year-old Samuel Thompson
said to Jarred Harrell from
the witness stand.
In a deal sparing Harrell
the death penalty, the 26-year-
old Harrell was sentenced
to life in prison without the
possibility of parole. Somer's.
family was in favor of the deal
because Harrell agreed not to
appeal any of his convictions.
"Your punishment does
absolutely not fit your crime,"
said Somer's mother, Diena
Thompson. "Remember now,
there is no safe place for you.
You do not have an impen-
etrable cell. There will be no
peace in the afterlife."
Somer was a second-grader
living in Orange Park, Fla. -
a suburb south of Jacksonville
- when she disappeared
while walking home from
school on Oct 19, 2009. She
was with her sister and some
friends, but ran ahead of them
after they had a spat
It was a route she had
taken many times before, and
she often stopped at a home
to pet a white dog. Usually, no
one came outside. On the day
Somer disappeared, authori-
ties said Harrell lured her into
the home where he was living
with his mother.

This photo provided by the family shows Somer Thompson. A
man pleaded guilty Friday, Feb. 3, 2012, in abduction and slay-
ing of 7-year-old Somer Thompson who was found in a landfill.
Jarred Harrell, 26, was sentenced to life in prison. Somer, a
second-grader, disappeared Oct. 19, 2009, while walking home
from Grove Park Elementary School. ShM was with her sister and
some friends, but ran ahead of them after they had a spat. Two
days later, she was discovered in the landfill.

Two days later, she was dis-
covered in a landfill in south-
ern Georgia.
Harrell wasn't arrested
until about three months
after Somer's death. Initially,
authorities interviewed con-
victed sex offenders within a
5-mile radius of Somer's sub-
urban north Florida home,
but didn't come up with any
substantial leads.
On a hunch, they tailed
nine garbage trucks from

Somer's neighborhood to the
landfill and picked through
the trash as each rig spilled
its load. They sorted through
more than 225 tons of garbage
before they spotted her legs
sticking out of the garbage.
Harrell lived with his
parents on a neighborhood
street Somer took to get
home. Police said Somer was
lured into the home and later
asphyxiated and tossed into a
trash bin, though they have

not released any more details
about her death.
After Somer vanished,
Harrell moved to Meridian,
Miss., to live with an aunt
He drew the attention of
law enforcement two months
before Somer disappeared,
but he wasn't arrested. His
roommates in Florida said
they kicked him out for steal-
ing and they discovered child
porAography on his comput-
er, which was turned over to
The Clay County sheriffs
office said Harrell wasn't
taken into custody then
because detectives had to
prove Harrell downloaded the
child porn.
He only became a suspect
in Somer's disappearance
after Somer's, friends showed
officials where they had last
seen Somer the home with
the dog. Also, the parents of
one of Harrell's roommates
drove by Harrell's parents'
home and noticed how close
it was to Somer's home.
When they saw Harrell's car
in his parents' driveway, they
told detectives.
According to authorities,
Harrell confessed,to sexually
molesting and killing Somer,
then disposing of her body.
DNA evidence found on
Somer also linked Harrell to
the crime.
Harrell pleaded guilty to
first-degree murder, kidnap-
ping, sexual battery, posses-
sion of child pornography
and other sex charges, some
stemming from an unrelated
molestation case involving a
3-year-old relative. Authorities

did not release details of that
new case.
The discovery of Somer's
body touched off an outpour-
ing of support in northeast
Florida and southern Georgia
for the Thompson family;
days of vigils and fundraisers
were held so Somer's mom
could financially afford to stay
home with her other chil-
dren. A mountain of stuffed
animals; balloons and notes
to the family sprung up near
a tree across from the little
girl's home.
Like most little girls, Somer
loved to dance, play dress up,
draw and color. Her favorite
color was purple.
At her funeral, hundreds of
purple balloons were released
into the sky, purple flowers
adorned her wooden casket
and her family wore purple
Somer had her brown hair
in a ponytail with a red bow
when she "went missing. She
was carrying a lunch box and
wearing Hannah Montana
backpack. It was purple.
'hfiswill be thatlastbreath
that I waste and use on you. It
is now time to take out the
trash," Somer's mother said.
"No punishment given to you
will be good enough to soothe
our spirit"

were really happy so I said, 'Yeah,

DEADLY: Lives intersect on deadly stretch of Interstate 75 near Gainesville

On this morning, the road
was shrouded with smoke
from a wildfire mixed with
A daughter's last call
More than. twelve hours
before the crash, Sabryna
Hughes Gilley texted her
mother to ask if it was OK for
her to go to Sarasota with her
father and stepmother for a
funeral. When Celeste Knapp
didn't hear from her 17-old
daughter after Saturday, she
began to worry.
State troopers came to
Knapp's door on Tuesday
afternoon to tell her that she
had died along with her father,
Michael Hughes, and her step-
mother, Lori. The Dodge Ram
pickup carrying them south
from Pensacola was burned
so badly that it took authorities
that long to determine how
many people had been in it
'They were looking for her
because they put two and two
together and knew she was
in the car," Knapp said. 'They
had to peel back layers of the
truck to get to her. I imagine
she was sleeping back there
and they found her tucked
away in the back."
Family was important to
Sabryna, and that was why she
wanted to make the journey for
the funeral of her stepmother's
grandfather, Knapp said. She
had two younger brothers,
ages 11 and 8, and dreamed of
being a pediatrician.

Conditions worsen
As Sabryna and the oth-
ers approached, the stretch
of Interstate 75 that runs
through Paynes Prairie
Preserve State Park had just
reopened after being closed
for three hours because of
the thick smoke and fog.
The Florida Highway Patrol
says troopers had checked
thIe highway and deter-
mined that visibility had
improved enough for it to
./be safe.
But conditions worsened

In the southbound lanes,
the FHP believes, two trac-
tor-trailer trucks stopped.
The Hughes' pickup couldn't
stop in time.
A heart to preach
For the church members
from Georgia, driving the
interstate after dark was part
of their post-retreat routine. A
friend says they attended sev-
eral conferences each year and
always drove home at night to
get back for Sunday services.
Jose Carmo Jr. and his fam-
ily had moved to Kennesaw,
Ga., from Brazil more than a
decade ago. He installed hard-
wood floors to make a living
for his wife Adrianna and their
young daughters, Leticia and
Lidiane, even starting his own
small company. They wor-
shipped at a church led by
Alonso Olivera, who eventually
closed it for personal reasons.
The led Carmo known as
Junior to his friends to open
his own.
"His heart was to preach,"
Olivera said of his friend. "He
worked more to help people
than to make money."
Jose, 43; Arianna, 39; and
17-year-old Leticia died in a

Interstate 75, on a darkened stretch of road with her parents and two other Restoration Church members, on Jan. 29. Leticia's sister, freshman Lidiane Carmo, 15, is

bound lanes. The pastor's
38-year-old brother, Edson,
was at the wheel of the van.
He also died, along with his
41-year-old girlfriend, Roselia
Barbara Almeida, Adrianna.
Carmo's close friend and
neighbor, had met the family
soon after she arrived in sub-
urban Atlanta in 2003.
"I wasn't a Christian. I
wasn't a believer," Almeida
said. "My husband and I
became Christians because
of the testament they gave.
.They lived a real Christian
life. They were a true exam-
ple for everyone."
Edson was much more
garrulous than his reserved
and reflective brother, Olivera
"When he arrived in a
room, everyone knew he
was there," Olivera said of
Edson. "He was very social.
He walked around the room

Almeida described Leticia
as a friendly, well-behaved girl
who loved music.
"Leticia was amazing," she
said. "She was a happy girl, a
Christian girl."
Lidiane was the sole sur-
vivor in the church van.

She remains hospitalized
in Gainesville, but is recov-
ering. The 15-year-old told
family members she wants
to stay in Georgia, and not
return to Brazil, a country she
left as a toddler and doesn't
remember. Olivera said she
will likely live with an aunt
and an uncle near Atlanta and
continue classes at the high
school she loves.
Some church members
and friends expressed con-
cern this week that immigra-
tion authorities might pursue
the girl because she's in the
country illegally. But a U.S.
Immigration and Customs
Enforcement spokeswoman
said this week that the girl is
not at risk of deportation.
Victim was a family man
On the southbound side
another pickup truck slammed
into a semi that had stopped
in the center lane. Vontavia
Robinson, 22, from the nearby
small town of Williston, died
when he crashed a Pontiac
Grand Prix into the back of
that pickup. An aunt told The
Gainesville Sun that Robinson
was coming home after bowl-
ing with his brother. His obitu-
ary said he came from a large
family and had two children of
his own.

Jason Lee Raikes, 26, and
Christie Diana Nguyen (pro-

in a Toyota Matrix that crashed
in the northbound lanes.
The couple had met playing
World of Warcraft online and
he had moved to Florida from
Richmond, Va., about a year
ago so they could be together.
Nguyen grew up in Gainesville,
the daughter of a physician and
his wife who had emigrated
from China.
Nguyen met her best friend
Kaitlin Smith while they were
dancing in the troupe at Santa
Fe Community College in
Gainesville. Although Nguyen
went on to graduate from the
University of Florida, she had
enrolled in some classes at the
community college this semes-
ter so she could continue to
dance there. She had a 7-year-
old son named Drew from a
previous marriage.

"She was always smiling. She

Raikes, who worked for a
computer company, had taken
his new girlfriend back to
Virginia to see his family for

Word that the U.S. combat
mission in Afghanistan will
end in 2013, more than a year
before all our troops there are
slated to come home, is very
welcome news.
The sooner the better.
What we set out to do in
Afghanistan has been done.
The Taliban has been removed
from power. Al-Qaida has been
dispersed and no longer has
a base of operations there.
Osama bin Laden is dead.
Afghanistan has a democrati-
cally elected government, how-
ever wobbly and corrupt it may
be. A large Afghan security
force has been trained and
There is little more the U.S.
military can reasonably be
expected to accomplish. It's
time to get our troops out of
harm's way.
Republican presidential front-
runner Mitt Romney slammed
the Obama administration's
decision to say publicly when
the U.S. combat mission
will transition to an advise-
and-assist role. For Defense
Secretary Leon Panetta to let
our enemies know the time-
table was "naive" and "misguid-
ed," Romney said. He's wrong.
Even without an official
announcement, our intentions
would be clear soon enough to
anyone on the ground as the
number of U.S. troops dwindles
and Afghans assume more com-
bat responsibility.
Ten years of war is enough,
and there's no reason to keep
the American public in the dark
about when it will finally end.

On tax plans,

Gingrich trumps Romney

Despite los-
ing Tuesday's
Florida primary,
Newt Gingrich's
Sunshine State
effort showcased his volun-
tary, 15 percent flat tax: 2012's
smartest idea yet, both strategi-
cally and substantively.
Through the Nov. 6 elec-
tion, this concept can inocu-
late, Republicans from the
Democrats' ceaseless lies about
the wealthy "not paying their
fare share" of taxes. And, if
implemented, Gingrich's plan
would reinvigorate America's
feeble economy.
As Gingrich explained at a
Jacksonville face-off: "I have
proposed an alternative flat
tax that people could fill out,
where you could either keep
the current system ... with all of
its deductions and all its paper-
work, or you'd have a single
page: 'I earned this amount.
I have this number of depen-
dents. Here is 15 percent.'"
Gingrich's idea is excel-
lent politics. President Barack
Obama and his liberal pals
simply refuse to acknowledge
the latest IRS data that irre-
futably demonstrate that the
oft-excoriated top 1 percent of
filers in 2009 generated 16.9
percent of national income and
paid 36.7 percent of income
tax. Meanwhile, the Tax Policy


Deroy Murdock
Center reported last August
that in 2011, those earning
between $20,000 and $30,000
paid an effective rate of 5.7
percent in combined income,
payroll, corporate and death
taxes. Those who made at least
$1 million paid 29.1 percent.
If Americans seek "fairness,"
why hike anyone's-share of
income sent to Washington?
Instead, free everyone to
choose an equal and lower
rate. Even as an option, this
would depopulate America's tax
shelters. Simplicity and much-
curtailed compliance costs have
their own appeal.
Even at 15 percent, the rich
will pay more. For argument's
sake, someone whb earns
$100,000 would pay $15,000
in taxes, while someone who
makes $100 million would pay
$15 million. Delicate calcula-
tions confirm that $15 million
exceeds $15,000. The rich will
pay more dollars in taxes, but
as a proportion of income equal

with everyone else. Hello, "fair
Gingrich also would chop
America's corporate tax from
35 percent (the industrial
world's second highest, after
Japan's) to a flat 12.5 percent,
which would tie Ireland's as the
lowest and most competitive
among developed nations.
Compared to Gingrich's
gutsy blueprint, Romney's
exhibits the caution that
has made the former
Massachusetts governor the
"oh, well, if we must" choice,
even among his supporters.
While Romney would ditch
the death tax and cut the corpo-
rate tax to 25 percent, he would
preserve today's income-tax
rates. He would scrap taxes on
interest, capital gains and divi-
dends, but echoing Obama -
only for those making less than
Republican primary voters
now face mixed messengers:
Gingrich possesses a luggage
carousel worth of personal
baggage, a visionary tax plan
and the courage of Godzilla.
Romney presents a mere tote
bag of quirks, a tepid tax pro-
posal and the bravery of a hum-

Shameful behavior by Republicans

To the Editor:
All good Republicans
should be embar-
rassed over
the Republican
Presidential can-
didates and the party in gen-
eral as they cc ntinue to bash,
blame, and blatantly lie on and
about United States President
Barack Obama.
The GOP presidential race
appears as a demolition derby;
evil vs. good; No Vs. yes; and
despite the Republican con-
gressional No's the economy
is beginning to bloom. Just
think of where America would
be today if the Republicans
in Congress would have par-
ticipated and cooperated in
the American political pro-
cess. GM is now the number
one car maker in the world;
Chrysler is back; Ford is back.
The auto industry is back, in
spite of all the foot-dragging
by Republicans. Republicans
would have you believe that
the stimulus was a failure! In
year 2011, America experi-
enced a 2.8 percent increase,
the greatest growth increase
since the recession. The
American people are begin-
ning to realize the untruths,

the racism, the hatred that is
being spewed from the mouths
of Republican candidates and
others. The latest incidents are:
(1) Pathetic Governor Janet
Brewer of Arizona's attempt to
demonize, belittle, and lie on
United States President Obama;
(2) The Republican National
Chairman's characterization
of President Obama as that
of the captain of thb ill-fated
cruise ship that was involved
in the death of some 10 human
beings, 15 are currently miss-
ing this is also the epitome of
disrespect, hatred, racism, and
ignorance to those families that
lost relatives and loved ones
in the mishap; and (3) Florida
Republican Congressman Allen
West, was an embarrassment
to all Republicans when he
singled out Congresswoman
Nancy Pelosi and Senator
Harry Reid to angrily say to
them and President Obama,
"Get the hell out of the
United States of America!" No
President in the history of the
United States has suffered the
indignities, disrespect, ridicule,
and blunt racism as President
Obama. Florida Governor
Rick Scott and the Republican
legislature have set stumbling
blocks (laws) to deny citizens

the right to vote in Florida.
Republican led legislatures
in states throughout America
have plotted and schemed to
deny Black and Latino citizens
-the right to vote, (remember,
many Blacks and others were
lynched, beaten, many died in
attaining the right to vote) hop-
ing to deny President Obama a
second term as President.
Once upon a time in
American history Blacks were
not deemed full persons -
Supreme Court Chief Justice
Roger B. Taney (Dred Scott
decision) wrote that Negro
equality was "incompatible
with the Constitution," leaving
blacks with "no rights which
a White man was bound to
respect." and, when Blacks
did gain the right to vote,;
they had to pay a poll tax; tell
the number of bubbles in a
bar of soap to vote; tell the
number of jelly beans in a jar
to vote; recite portions of the
Constitution to vote, and many
other despicable and ridiculous
acts of ignorance and injustice.
Despite all of this extremism,
the President's poll numbers
are rising!

and the


Hopes that
America's eco-
nomic or budget-
ary situation might
improve anytime
soon were dashed Tuesday.
The Congressional Budget
Office (CBO) issued its outlook
through 2022, with near-term
figures looking increasingly
negative. This shouldn't sur-
prise anyone.
The nonpartisan watch-
dogs expect sluggish growth
through 2013, with the econo-
my expanding an estimated 2
percent this year but slowing
to a pitiful 1.1 percent next
year. Unemployment is expect-
ed to hover around 9 percent.
The CBO forecast is for 8.9
percent unemployment in
2012, climbing to 9.2 percent
the following year.
American consumers didn't
need the CBO to tell them
we're stuck in a malaise. In
January, the consumer-con-
fidence index dropped from
64.8 to 61.1, according to the
Conference Board. Likewise,
the business barometer
maintained by the Institute
for Supply Management-
Chicago declined from 62.2 in
December to 60.2 in January,
led by slowing orders and
employment. To round off this
litany of gloom, there was a
larger-than-expected 3.7 per- *
cent decline in the latest S&P/
Case-Shiller index of prop-
erty values. By measure after
measure, the U.S. economy is
headed down.
Things could have been
even worse. The economy
grew at 2.8 percent in the last
quarter of last year, but that
yielded an anemic 1.8 per-
cent growth rate for the year,
nowhere near the 3 percent
needed for a sustained recov-
ery. The economy added some
jobs, but 400,000 people still
'filed for jobless benefits for the
first time.
For the most part,
Americans aren't seeing their
wallets grow. Personal dispos-
able income rose a paltry 0.5
percent in December, accord-
ing to the Bureau of Economic
Analysis. What's most striking
about the BEA data is that
personal consumption expen-.
ditures decreased slightly dur-
ing the height of the holiday
shopping season. The money
not spent is going straight into
bank vaults, with the personal
savings rate up from 3.5 per-.
cent in November to 4 percent
in December.
American families are so
concerned about the future
that they're socking away as
much cash as possible even
though the Federal Reserve
continues its policy of holding
interest rates low. The public
has a sense that worse days
lie ahead, especially in light
of the dire news emanating
from across the Atlantic about
the teetering European Union.
U.S. financial markets will be
affected by how Europe han-
dles its debt crisis.
Still, the CBO's numbers are
just forecasts. It's not too late
for Congress and the president
to set the stage for better out-
comes. They can simplify and
reduce taxes and regulation,
enabling the private sector to
jump-start investment, produc-
tion and job creation.
Reducing ambiguity and
the regulatory burden is the
surest way of generating the
sustained economic growth
needed to cut the unemploy-
ment rate long-term. When
consumers see their govern-
ment acting responsibly by
living within its means they'll
respond by boosting personal
spending, which will help get
the economy rolling again.

SMITH: Says he was

subject of discrimination

Continued From Page 1A
"None of the alleged
acts of discrimination were
objectively severe," Stadler
wrote. "There is no allega-
tion of conduct that, was
physically threatening or of
a humiliating nature."
Smith said his concerns
with Gilmore's manage-
ment style started less than
a month after he was hired.
He met with a pastor who
told him he "needed to
watch his back." The two
men discussed concerns
about the way former police
Capt. Rudolph Davis was
treated before he was fired.
According to Smith's
complaint, another individ-
ual gave Smith a similar
warning to be careful.
When Smith told Gilmore
about his conversations
with the two men, he said
in his complaint that she
described the second of
them as "a spineless, weak-
kneed black man" and told
Smith she hoped he did not
have similar qualities.
Stadler, in his report, said
the warnings "may be the
most significant facts incov-
ered during this investiga-

Chief Gilmore."
Smith, in the com-
plaint, said he was publicly
embarrassed when he was
required to serve food at
a. community center in
November 2010, less than a
month after he.was hired.
Gilmore assigned him to
represent the department,
but he said no one knew
he was a law enforcement
officer because he hadn't
received Florida Police cer-
tification yet, so he had to
Wear civilian clothes instead
of a uniform.
Gilmore, who also
attended the event, said she
believed it was an opportu-
nity for Smith to meet rep-
resentatives from the local
black community, which as
ai new hire was important
for him.
Smith, in his complaint,
s'id Gilmore repeatedly
questioned him about triv-
ial issues such as who was
responsible for printing
t4kets for a policeman's
ball and.sending memos
vthout her approval. He
also said Gilmore sent
hlm an email requiring
hirp to stop by her office
e" h day and say goodbye
before leaving work.
SGilmore criticized Smith
fbr his apparent depen-
dence on email to con-
vey instructions to staff,
iflstead of doing it ver-
bally. Smith was known as
"the email Nazi" by subor-
dinates, Stadler wrote.
' Smith was upset after
lIrning about a complaint
fled with the department
i April 2011. He said
ote of his officers was
acused of living with the
married wife of a civilian.
Stnith said he should have
been told after Gilmore
larned of the complaint

filed against the officer
utder his command.
'That same month, Smith
had another complaint
that he believes supports
the pattern of discrimina-
tion he allegedly experi-
On Oct. 11, 2010, the day
he started working for the
department, another offi-

cer, John Blanchard, was
promoted to captain. The
men were to be Gilmore's
two highest ranking
command staff officers,
answering directly to her.
Both men were told
they would receive rais-
es after completing six-
month probationary peri-
ods, according to Smith's
complaint. But Gilmore
could not keep her prom-
ise to Smith because all
new city employees must
serve a year-long proba-
tion period.
Since Blanchard was
an existing department
employee before his pro-,
motion to captain, he
was given a raise after
six months and Smith was
told he had to wait until he
completed his 12-month
probation period. Gilmore
unsuccessfully tried to get
city officials to make an
exception and give Smith a
raise after six months, but
her request was rejected.
The city determined
there was no evidence
Blanchard's raise was
based on anything other
than departmental policy,
Stadler wrote.

Smith, who refers in his
EEOC complaint to "con-

cited a Nov. 9 memo from
Gilmore about a laptop
computer, apparently lost
by an officer under his
command, that was report-
ed as stolen, The incident
.is cited in Johnson's Nov.
15 letter placing Smith on
administrative leave.
Smith, in the com-
plaint, said he was held
to a different standard
than Blanchard, who is
white. Blanchard resigned
Thursday, after more than
22 years in the department.
He was on paid admin-
istrative leave for what
city officials described
as "inappropriate activity
and conduct." No details
have been released by the
"I have been made to
second-guess myself, and
made to feel as if I must

wrote in the complaint.
"Chief Gilmore has ques-

deeds, both publicly and
privately as suspect, -as if
I have an ulterior motive
for my actions. I am con-
'stantly scrutinized and
questioned as to why I did

Stadler, in his written
response to Smith's com-
plaint, said "there is no
basis to conclude Chief
Gilmore's actions were
based on Capt. Smith's
"At no point has Capt.
Smith identified any con-
duct that prevented him
from performing his job
as captain," Stadler wrote.
"He may disagree with
how Chief Gilmore wants

to run the department,
but such disagreement
does not amount to unlaw-
ful harassment."
City Manager Wendell
Johnson said the internal
investigation should be
completed in coming days
and will be public record
at that time.

Avenue home surrounded by her offi-
"I explained to her Friday was as real
as it gets when it comes to police work,"
Smith wrote in the complaint "I told her
she always talks about her command
staff as a team. I said, "Well, Friday it
was time for her team to play baI and
the team didn't have a leader.'"
Smith said Gilmore didn't tell anyone
she was leaving, leaving him in com-
mand of the tense standoff situation
that ended hours later when the gun-
man took his own life. None of the offi-
cers received life-threatening wounds
and they are all expected to return to
active duty.
Gilmore, in a telephone interview
Friday, defended her actions. I
"I stand by my decision," she said.
"My officers were wounded. I was tend-
ing to them. It's a shame he felt I aban-
doned him."
She said she notified officers at the
scene she was leaving and referred all
questions to the incident commander,
Gilmore said she remained in con-
stant contact by telephone with Smith
and Columbia County Sheriff Mark
Hunter until she returned.
"I believed Capt. Smith was capable
of handling the scene," she said.
Gilmore defended her decision and
told Smith he should have been flat-
tered she trusted his ability to handle
the incident in her absence, he said.
"Chief Gilmore stated she had three
hurt officers and she felt they needed
her, so she made a decision to go to the
hospital with them," Smith wrote in the
complaint "She stated if that was the
wrong decision that's the decision she
made and she stands by that decision."
The claim that Gilmore's staff ques-
tioned why she left the scene was not
contradicted by Richard Stadler, assis-
tant city attorney, in his response to
Smith's complaint
"Capt Smith and others in the depart-
ment express concern over the chief
leaving the scene to go to the hospital.
Chief Gilmore called a critical incident
debriefing and explained her reasons
for leaving the scene and her faith in
Capt Smith to handle the scene in her
absence," Stadler wrote. "There is still a

major disagreement between the chief
and Capt. Smith over the handling of
the incident, and this is a burning issue
with Capt'Smith."
City Manager Wendell Johnson
defended Gilmore's decision to accom-
pany the wounded officers, rather than
remain at the scene.
"She was in the heat of a very seri-
ous event," he said. "She left this man
in charge. She left a competent officer
at the site. He had telephone contact
with her the whole time. What is he, a
Cub Scout? He's a captain, not a Cub

his performance in her absence. He
said she "criticized me and accused me
of turning over the media and the scene
to the sheriff."

Hunter, in an interview Thursday,
described his role during the stand-




off. He was listening to his. police
radio while driving on U.S. 90 in Lake
City when 'he heard a dispatcher say
shots were fired and three officers
were down. The dispatcher was told
to call the SWAT team, which is under
Hunter's command.
Hunter said it took about 3 minutes
to arrive at the scene; His first question
was who was in charge.
Minutes after he arrived, Hunter
said he was listening to his police radio
and heard an officer say Gilmore was
en route to a Gainesville hospital with
the wounded officers.
Hunter said Smith was the senior
ranking officer from Lake City Police
at the scene. Hunter said he never saw
'or spoke to Gilmore before she left
with the wounded officers.

'"The officers

instructions," he said. 'They did a won-
derful job. When you have an event
like that, everyone works together."
Hunter said he doesn't know if law
enforcement's response would have
been different if Gilmore had remained
at the scene.
"When she got back, it was a very
fluid operation," he said. "She stayed
on the scene the remainder of the
time, after that."
When asked if he would have left a
standoff to accompany wounded depu-
ties to a hospital, Hunter's response
was clear.
"As for leaving the scene, no sir,"
he said. "I don't see me leaving that

OFFICERS: Exonerated in Cedar Creek incident

fight among 15-20 people in which a
suspect was said to have a gun; and an
officer's call for assistance.
To determine whether officers vio-
lated LCPD General Order 152.30, Non-
Deadly Force, OPD reviewed all the
information pertaining to the Cedar
Park Apartment incident, and the 16
officers from the LCPD who responded
to calls at the complex were separated
into two categories: witness officers and
subject officers.
. The subject officers,' during the
course of resolving the three incidents,
either used physical force in assisting
with or making an arrest, or displayed
or deployed their Taser or firearm to
affect an arrest or offer protection to
another officer.
OPD investigators interviewed all 16
officers as well as one witness. .OPD
representatives also interviewed the
director of Criminal Justice at Florida
Gateway College in regards to an officer
drawing his firearm and the technique
used. The director said the technique
was proper.
. There was no testimony provided
specifically by those who originally
complained about the officers' actions,
and/or by those who were arrested,
that would suggest as inappropriate
the force officers used in effecting
the arrests at Cedar Park

Apartments that day.
It was recommended by the Orlando
Police Department Internal Affairs
Investigator that all subject officers be
exonerated, the summary said.
The investigation also addressed
alleged violations by several officers for
driving at a high rate of speed as they
responded to the apartment complex.
The investigation of these allegations
was conducted through officer inter-
views as well as by in-car video systems,
which also contain GPS information
for determine the speed at which the
vehicle is traveling.
The officers' speeds 'surpassed the
posted speed of 45 mph, though this
was not in violation of policy since the
is no policy placing a cap on how fast
officers may drive in responding to an
emergency, the summary said.
LCPD General Order 155, emer-
gency response driving, says an offi-
cer responding to an emergency may
exceed posted and non-posted speed
limits and must slow down or stop as
needed for safe operation.
The Orlando Police Department's
Internal Affairs Investigation report
said it did not appear the officers placed
any individual's life in jeopardy, and it
appeared they used due care during
the response.
"Although the investigation was

tedious for all the officers involved, I
am proud of all of our officers," Gilmore
said in the investigative summary.
"They were cooperative, flexible with
the many requests and requirements of
this investigation. They continue to go
beyond the call of duty."
During the Sept 19 Lake City Council
meeting, the council received approxi-
mately 50 letters of complaint pertain-
ing to the incidents at Cedar Park.
The letters, along with several videos
from the in-car camera systems and
YouTube videos made by citizens were
turned over to the OPD Internal Affairs
Section to be included in the indepen-
dent administrative investigation.
Ten people were arrested during the
incident, resulting in 27 charges, at the
conclusion of the incident
The charges were:
Assault on a law enforcement offi-
cer (2)
Battery on a law enforcement offi-
cer (3)
Resisting an officer with violence
Resisting an officer with out vio-
lence (7)
Incite/encourage riot (4)
Disorderly conduct (8)
OPD completed its investigation Jan.
12 and Gilmore received the completed
report Jan. 20.

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 Word
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
Hdly Bible versus Florida Biology 1 End-if-Course Assessment Test Items
Specifications, page 32 SC.7.L.15.1; page 52 SC.912.L.15.10


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

The Indians open the
regular season this week

working, disciplined team
that battles pretty good."
Rizzi said BBCOR bats
that have a reduced sweet
spot are now required in
high school.
"They changed the col-
lege game and will proba-
bly change the high school
game more," Rizzi said.

Patriots quarterback Tom

"I'm proud of Peyton. I've

None of that comes up," Eli
said. "When I talk to Peyton,
he does a great job of trying
to keep me relaxed. (We)
talk a little football and
talk about New England
some. He's supported me
this week. I know he's just
working hard trying to get
healthy and I'm going to

"We feel that we certainly
have a very strong group
of men in the front," Giants
coach Tom Coughlin said.
"It's just the way. we play
and prefer to play. It's a
pressure group, and we
have played 'better in the
back end as well, probably
as a result of the ball having

Brady certainly remem-

and emotionally, from the
beating he took on the field
and the scoreboard,
"Any time you lose, it's
a tough thing," Brady said.
'We've lost one Super Bowl.

Tax laws are so
complex many_
taxpayers don't
feel comfort-
able filing out
their own returns, but get-
ting professional help can
be expensive.
Believe it or not, the
Internal Revenue Service
wants to help.
In addition to its online
Free File service, which
offers name-brand soft-
ware at no cost for taxpay-
ers with adjusted gross,
income of $57,000 or less,
the IRS sponsors pro-
grams that bring together
trained tax preparers and
those who need help with
their returns.
The Volunteer Income
Tax Assistance and Tax
Counseling for the Elderly
programs both operate
in conjunction with local.
governments and social
service agencies, librar-

ies and other community
organizations to make the
help easy to access.
The VITA program
VITA features IRS-
certified volunteers who
provide free basic income
tax return preparation to
qualified individuals, main-
ly those who earn $50,000
or less.
The volunteers can help
make sure taxpayers don't
overlook special credits,
such as the earned income
tax credit, child tax credit,
and credit for the elderly
or the disabled.
Most VITA program
sites offer free electronic
filing, which helps speed
up the refund process.
Although there are no
program sites in Columbia
County, residents can
make appointments at any
of the 20 locations offered
in six counties, said Dana
Napier, vice president
of communications for
United Way of North
Central Florida.
There are locations
in Gainesville, Bronson,
Alachua, Chiefland. Starke.
Trenton., Melrose, Cross.
City and Lake Bulter. The
program is funded by a

grant from the IRS, she
Napier said there are
currently plenty of appoint-
ments available, but as
the April 17 tax deadline
approaches, spaces fill up.

Taxing Gifts
Versus Inheritances
Q If I inherit stock when a rela-
tive dies, am I taxed on the
gains? CL., Monticello, Minn.
A You're taxed on gains only
when you sell. But to calcu-
late your gain then, you'll need to
know your "basis" in the stock.
That's treated differently for gifts
and ihheritances (received from
someone's estate).
With a gift of appreciated stock
or property, your'basis is the same
one that the giver originally had. So,
you'll need to try to trace the cost
all the way back to when the giver
bought the asset. This can some-
times be hard.
With an inheritance, you get a
"stepped-up" basis. Your basis is
the fair-market value of the stock
on the date of death of the donor.
The estate's tax return should
disclose the value of the stock
at date of death. /
Alternatively, if you know the
date, you can get the stock price
online at various sources (such as
finance.)ahoo.com). or een by
calling your broker or the compa-
ny's investor relations department
and asking.
Once you determine the value,

Give Buffett a Look
Many know Warren Buffett
only for his calls for higher taxes
on the wealthy and for his cam-
paign to get fellow billionaires to
donate much of their wealth to
charity. For many decades, though,
he's helmed Berkshire Hathaway
(NYSE: BRK-B). You might want
to consider it for your portfolio.
Under Buffett's leadership,
Berkshire has risen from about
$12 per share in 1965 to more
than $116,000 per share recently.
(Those are the class-A shares; we
small investors can grab class-B
shares for roughly $77 apiece.) The

time, but it's still attractive.
For starters, there's diversifica-
tion. It owns dozens of companies,
including a lot of insurers such as
GEICO. There are also-handfuls of

as such diverse businesses as Fruit of
the Loom, Dairy Queen, See's Can-

Berkshire owns 5 percent of IBM,
nearly 7 percent of Wells Fargo and

New Orleans celebrates steamboat anniversary

By Mary Foster
SAssociated Press
',hundred years ago, the first
steamboat meandered down
the Ohio and Mississippi
rivers, taking more than
four months to reach New
,Orleans. The journey was
"marked by Indians chas-
'ing the paddle-wheeled
boat, a baby's birth and an
earthquake that made the
'Mississippi flow in the oppo-
'site direction for 45 miles.
Despite it all, the steam-
boat New Orleans success-
fully sailed into the city it was
named for, revolutionizing
business for the port, and
opening up the Midwest to
economic growth.
The 200th anniversary
of the first docking will be
celebrated Saturday along
the banks of the Mississippi
and at the Cabildo museum
in the French Quarter. The
museum has a related exhib-
it New Orleans Bound 1812:
The Steamboat that Changed
"A ship capable of sailing
up the Mississippi had never
sailed down it before," said
Frank Courtenay, a maritime
attorney and president of the
celebration sponsor River
Heritage Foundation. "It

was the first that could oper-
ate against the current, and
that's what made the port
of New Orleans what it is
These days, more than
6,000 vessels move through
the port each year. In 1812,
there were only flat boats
coming down the Mississippi,
and vessels under sail strug-
gling up from the Gulf of
Still, when that first paddle
wheeler arrived, it created
surprisingly little stir, said
Tony Lewis, the curator of
the Cabildo show.
"It was certainly a historic
moment, and it capped a trip
full of adventure," Lewis said.
"But there was not a lot of
excitement about it I suspect
they landed here and it was
more of a curiosity than any-
Steam engines had already
come to New Orleans, Lewis
said, as had Word of steam-
boats on the northern rivers.
Built in Pittsburgh by a
group of investors that includ-
ed Robert Fulton credited
by many as the father of the
modern steam-powered ship
- the boat was 138feet long
and 33-feet wide. It carried
17 people, including an engi-
neer, six deckhands, a cook,
a waiter, two female servants,


and a Newfoundland dog
named Tiger.
Lydia Roosevelt, wife of
Nicholas Roosevelt, one of
the leading investors, gave
birth to a son on the way
down river. The boat left
Pittsburgh in October 1811
and docked in New Orleans
on Jan. 10, 1812.
During the first voyage,
people on the banks threw
rocks at the boat, fearing it
carried invading British sol-
diers.- Indians chased the
boat downstream, blaming it

for a recent eclipse and later
the earthquake.
Within just a few decades,
steamboats stimulated
growth in the cities like
St. Louis, Cincinnati and
Memphis. For the first time,
raw material could move up
river to manufacturers.
By the Civil War, the port
of New Orleans was consid-
ered a vital target for Union
forces, which captured the
city in 1862 and cut off a
key channel of trade for the

On Saturday, there will be
a re-enactment of the steam-
boat's arrival in the French
Quarter, a symposium on
steamboats and other events
to mark the anniversary.
The Natchez, the only
steamboat still operating in
New Orleans, is in dry dock

In their heyday, steam-
boats were noted for the
luxurious accommodations,

there are no steamboats

Shaving Off Profits
My almost-dumbest investment
was many years ago, when my
broker tried to convince me to sell
some 14 percent zero-coupon bonds
(remember those days?) and buy
some fund he was pushing.
I dumped him and his
firm instead and did my -.
own research ever since. 'i .
My best investments over
the years were a few stocks that
tripled. In each case, as they ran
up, I would sell amounts about
equal to my original cost on each
run-up. If they ultimately col-
lapsed (some did), I would have at
least captured some profit. If they
did not, I would continue to hold a
portion long-tenn.
My latest (and best!) investment
has been Apple, which I sold in
parts all the way up, making a
nice profit and with still a nice
holding for the long term. -
W. C., Syracuse, N.Y.
The Fool Responds: That's a
conservative, but not crazy, move,
selling a portion of your big win-
ners. Regarding your broker, some
brokers do make solid recommen-
dations, but it's always good to find
out if they will receive a commis-
sion for products sold to you.

Heath beds

Associated Press

make good
garden compan-
ions, and such
is the case for the heath
You know these plants:
rhododendron, azalea, pier-
is, mountain laurel and, of
course, heather and heath.
Add blueberry, huckle-
berry and lingonberry,
and you have a grouping
that can provide months of
good eating, flowers almost
year round, and attractive
stems or leaves.
In Britain, such plants
are among those that dwell
in so-called "peat gardens,"
in which the soil is amend-
ed with enormous quanti-
ties of peat. Peat provides
the extreme acidity, low
fertility, consistent mois-
ture and aeration in which
these plants thrive.
All that peat is not a
must for a heath bed. But
some special soil prepara-
tion is required, and any-
time you can work the soil
is a good time to do it.
Many years ago, in
autumn, I prepared a heath
bed by nixmng sawdust
instead of peat into the soil.
Any kind of sawdust will
do, except that from wood
that has been treated with
a preservative, such as
pressure treated wood.
Sawdust breaks down
slowly so provides a long-
lasting source of humus,
and it is finely divided, so
it can be mixed intimately
with the soil. It also acidi-
fies the soil, at least for a
Soil acidity is crucial for
most heath plants, their
preference being a range
from 4 to 5.5, which is
much more acidic than
most other plants demand.
The ideal is to test your soil
and then add sulfur a
natural mineral to bring
acidity to the correct range.
In sandy soils, add three-
quarters of a pound of
sulfur per 100 square feet
for each pH unit above
4.5. Use three times that
amount for soils high in
Sawdust has just a
smidgen of nitrogen, and
when soil microorganisms
start making sawdust into
humus, they're going to
need more. As they scav-
enge excess nitrogen from
the soil, plants are apt to.
get starved for this ele-
ment. Avert the problem
by adding extra nitrogen
to the soil along with the
sawdust, to the tune of 2
pounds of actual nitrogen
for every 40 bushels of
That 2 pounds of nitro-
gen might be supplied, for
example, by 20 pounds
of any fertilizer that is 10
percent nitrogen, or by 30
pounds of my prefer-
ence soybean meal,
which is 7 percent nitro-
To prepare the bed for
planting, I spread a 3-inch
depth of sawdust on the
soil along with the fertilizer
and sulfur, then dug it into
the top 6 inches of soil. No
need to mix the stuff any
deeper because another

Deciphering the


Local educators
weigh in on the con-
tinuing importance of
Roman numerals,

guage all their own,
but ask them to deci-
pher the XLVI of this
year's Super Bowl
and you might as well be talking
They may know what X means,
or V and I, but Roman numerals
beyond the basics have largely
gone the way of cursive and pen-
manship as a subject taught in
"Roman numerals are not a big
focus," said Jeanie Wilks, English
and drama teacher at Fort White
High School.
She said students come across
Roman numerals occasionally in
literature and math, but the Super
Bowl is likely the most expo-
sure they have to the numbers.
'Twenty is as far as I really see
them get," she said.
What's wrong with good ol'
46 to describe this year's Super
Bowl between the Giants and the
Patriots today?
"'Number 46,' it just kind
of sounds like an inventory.
'Inspected by Joe,'" said Joe
Horrigan, NFL historian and
spokesman for the Pro Football
Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
'Those Roman numerals, they're
almost like trophies."
Any football fan worth his
weight in nachos will find a way
to figure out the Super Bowl num-
ber from one year to the next, but
shouldn't kids have some sense
of the Romans as an actual num-
bering system?
"I think it really is like cursive,"
Wilks said. Some students have a
hard time reading cursive on the
classroom board, but Wilks said .
reading cursive is an important
skill. Primary documents, origi-
., nal sources of history, often use
Roman numerals and flourish-
heavy cursive. Students might
incorrectly translate the sources
if they don't understand the old-
fashioned methods, hampering
their ability to understand history
on their own terms.
Wilks said the importance
isn't in continuing to use Roman
numerals and cursive, but rather
recognizing and understanding
the systems.
In elementary
school, some students
.have a hard time
understanding that "L
Roman numerals are part
real numbers, said WOh
Chad Padgett, ESE rep
paraprofessional at
Pinemount Elementary SUp
School. Learning i.-,W(
Roman numerals are nuiT
often incorporated into NOw
other skills, such as
reading a book's table
of contents.
Although he isn't
much of a football fan,
Gerard Michon keeps
a close eye on Super Bowls at
Numericana.com, where he dis-
sects math and physics.
Starting with Super Bowl XLI
in 2007, he has been getting an
increased number of game-day
visits from football fans with a
sudden interest in Roman numer-
als. On the day of last year's
Super Bowl XLV, so many people
visited that Michon's little server
crashed. When the dust cleared,

he had logged 15,278 hits, more
than 90 percent landing on "XLV."
"Last year was total madness,"
Michon said, in part "because
so many people were wondering
why VL isn't a correct replace-
ment for XLV." When the Super
Bowl started, the games were
assigned simple Roman numerals

"The NFL didn't model
after the Olympics," said Dan
Masonson, director of the
league's corporate communica-
tions. Instead, he said, the Roman
system was adopted to avoid
any confusion that might occur
because of the way the Super
Bowl is held in a different year

With Super Bowl XLVI
approaching, a primer on
Roman numerals:
I equals 1
V equals 5
X equals 10
L equals 50
C equals 100
D equals 500
M equals 1,000
Roman numerals are usually
arranged in descending value
and added up from left to right
But when a smaller number
is placed before a larger one,
the smaller value is subtracted
from the larger one to the
For example: IV is 4, XL
is 40 and CM equals 900. So
MCMXLIV is 1944.
There are certain restrictions
when subtracting. For example,

Baby on the way? Make time

to prepare pets for new arrival

Associated Press
have months to get ready for a
baby. Experts say the countdown
should include prep time for pets
A baby changes everything for
a pet from how its home looks,'
smells and sounds to what the
rules are.
Low energy, friendly, social.
dogs are the most adaptable pets,
while independent, excitable,
high maintenance, busybody dogs
are the least adaptable, said San
Francisco veterinarian and animal
behaviorist Sophia.Yin.
"Little dogs can be more jeal-
ous and more snippy," said Lynn
Sullivan, community health pro-
gram manager for The BirthPlace
at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical
Center and Orthopaedic Hospital.
When Saya Barrett learned she
and husband Jack were going
to have a baby, she worried that
their 15-pound, 5-year-old poodle,
Latte, would be jealous.-
Instead, Barrett said, Latte
"was curious. He could hear her
little noises from the crib but had
no idea what they were or where
they were coming from. He fig-
ured it out pretty soon though.
He did what any other confused
dog would do looked around,
sniffed, then soon found her in
her crib."
Almost immediately, she said,
they knew "Latte would be a good
big brother" to baby Aila, now 4
months old: "Latte is very good
to her. He will lick her hands and
feet if we are sitting on the couch
While Latte adjusted easily, Yin

m ay 4W -.
In this Jan. 11, 2012 photo, Latte, a five-year-old poodle, plays with three-month-old Aila Barrett at their home in
Tustin, Calif. Experts say preparing a pet for a new baby will help the animal and ease parent anxieties.

said making some changes before
the baby arrives can help a pet
and ease new parent anxieties.
Maybe your dog needs to learn
some basic commands like sit,
down or stay, she said. If your dog
is used to jumping in your lap or
up onto furniture, new botindar-
ies should be set before the baby
comes home. Maybe you'have to
move the cat's litter box to make
way for a crib.
If your dog is uncomfortable
around visitors, add some social
activities like trips to the dog
You can buy CDs or find online
recordings df baby sounds,
including rattles and cries, Yin

said. Pairing noises with treats
will make the newness easier to
Use baby powder, shampoo and
lotions' before the baby is born.
While the baby is still at the hos-
pital, take a shirt or blanket the
baby has used and let your pet get
familiar with the scent, Sullivan
A trip to the vet will assure that
pets don't have fleas, parasites or
other problems, but cat owners
who are pregnant must also guard
against toxoplasmosis, Sullivan
said. The parasite that causes it is
most often found in cat feces, so
use gloves or get someone else to
change litter boxes.

Cats can be an ideal pet for new
parents because they often ignore
the baby, but they are also curious
and can jump and crawl, Sullivan
said, recalling an incident when
her son, now grown, was an infant
and her cat wouldn't stay out of
the crib. "When she scratched
the baby, that was it," Sullivan
said. She immediately found a
new home for the cat.
"Infants are helpless," Sullivan
said. "No matter how good-
natured a pet is, never leave any
pet alone with a baby."
Yin said when she talks about
cats and babies, the same ques-
tion always comes up can a cat
suck the life out of a baby while

trying to lick milk off the infant's
Not true, she says: "Cats will
not suck the air from a newborn,
but they do like to snuggle .tp to a
warm body."
Cats don't like sticky surfac-
es, so to keep cats away from a
crib, cover the outside with sticky
paper or double-sided tape.
When babies start moving and
crawling, that poses ndw chal-
lenges for pets, especially fearful
"Their first response is to get
away," said Yin. "As long as they
can do that, it's OK But when the
object keeps coming after them
and corners them, they might
become defensive."
Most dogs will accept their new
roles as pal and protector, Yin
said, but there might be reasons
they can't, don't or won't.
Maybe you have an older dog
with arthritis. Getting pounced
on by a young child could hurt,
causing the dog to snap. Dogs
may also lash out in response
to rough or even mean-spirited
behavior from children, like spit-
ting or wrestling. If a dog pants
for no reason or won't lean into
a child for a hug, that could be a
sign that the dog feels stressed
by the child's presence, Yin said.
"Some children are very aggres-
sive with animals and they need
to learn early how to treat ani-
mals," she said.
New mothers might also con-
sider a dog walker or even doggie
daycare to give everyone a break,
Yin said.
Finally, don't take on a baby
and a puppy at the same time.
"That," said Yin, "would be like
having twins."

'Mona Lisa' copy done

hand in hand with da Vinci

Associated Press
Lisa" copy owned by Spain's
Prado Museum was almost
certainly painted by one of
Leonardo da Vinci's appren-
tices alongside the master
himself as he did the origi-
nal, museum officials said
The stunning find of what
the Prado now says is prob-
ably the earliest known copy
of La Gioconda will give art
lovers and experts an idea of
what the Mona Lisa looked
like back in -the 16th cen-

tor collections.
"It is as if we were in the
same studio, standing at the
next easel," he told report-
The copy has been part of
the Prado collection for years
and displayed occasionally
but no one paid much atten-
tion to it because around the
woman in the Mona Lisa was
a stark black background,
not the pretty landscape seen
in the original.
Two years ago, to get the
copy ready for a da Vinci
exhibit later this year in Paris,
where the original hangs in
the Louvre, tests were done

This Valentine's Day, your gift
could be one in a million, or one
of 189 million.
The latter's the number of roses
bought every February. The for-
mer? A personalized song or cus-
tom mixtape.
Some musicians have found a
niche taking people's love sto-
ries and turning them into verse
and tune. Peoria, Ill.-based Black
Balloon Studio, for example, has
created and recorded more than
400 custom songs since 2001.
Founder William Beran says the
process is simple.
"Have an idea what you want
to say. Some clients have helped
write lyrics, others have given us a
poem that we worked into a song.
Others simply tell us a story and
leave the lyrics up to us," he says.
Beran asks clients about their
favorite artists, bands and genres.

tome: gift
The company often turns out a
song in a couple of days, although
he guarantees a finished prod-
uct including a lyric sheet and
a CD with custom-designed case
art in 28 days. If you don't like
how.the song's developing, Beran
will tweak things, with a different
singer or instruments.
Black Balloon charges $329 for
a song, regardless of length. As
Beran observes, "Some people
have a lot to say. Some would
rather say more with less."
If you don't want to go all in on
an original song, consider giving
a thixtape of favorite songs that
mean something to both of you.
You can create one pretty easily
online and then put the song list
on a USB drive to wrap up.
