dies at 48

AP Music Writer
Houston, who ruled as pop music's
queen until her majestic voice and
regal image were ravaged by drug
use, erratic behavior and a tumultu-
ous marriage to singer Bobby Brown,
died Saturday. She was 48.
Beverly Hills police Lt. Mark Rosen
told reporters outside the Beverly
Hilton that Houston was pronounced
dead at 3:55 p.m. in her room on the
fourth floor of the hotel. Her body
remained there and Beverly Hills
detectives were investigating.
"There were no obvious signs of
any criminal intent," Rosen said.
Houston's 'publicist, Kristen
Foster, said the cause of death was
Rosen said police received a 911 call
from hotel security about Houston at
3:43 p.m. Saturday. Paramedics who
were already at the hotel because of
a Grammtyparty unsuccessfully tried
to resuscitate the singer, he said.

Sports tourneys turn a

profit, but how much?

Harvey Campbell, executive director of the Columbia County Tourist Development Council, stands near the entrance of one of the baseball
fields at the Southside Recreation Complex. The tourist council on Wednesday will consider asking the county commission to raise the tourist
bed tax by a penny to help fund improvements at the facility.

Commissioner wants more precise figures on

what visiting teams inject into local economy


L ast summer, Rusty DePratter
.asked fellow Columbia County
Commission members if it was
a good investment to spend tbx-
payer money for improvements
at the Southside Recreation Complex.
DePratter asked for hard numbers
showing the financial impact of tourna-
ments and other events at the sports com-
plex in Lake City to help him determine
if he will support future funding requests
for the venue.
SHarvey Campbell, director of the
Columbia County Tourist Development
Council, contacted state officials to deter-


mine if there was a way
to determine the return
on investment for the
sports complex. He said
most counties that-keep
sporting events statistics
use a formula adopted
by the Florida Sports
Foundation, the state's
official sports marketing

Using the formula, Campbell provided
what he described in a memo as a "con-
servative estimate" of the impact tourna-
ments have on the local economy.
Campbell's report concluded the 142-
acre recreation complex, with 25 baseball
and five soccer fields, generated nearly
$5.5 million in direct spending to the Lake

City area. The results were surprising
because Campbell said they show a great-
er financial impact than he expected.
"I was pretty impressed," Campbell
said. "I felt like it was consistently reason-

sion meeting. He said he expected more

Feds deny part of state Medicaid proposal

- Republican lawmakers'
quest to expand a Medicaid
privatization program state-
wide was dealt a blow this
week after federal health
officials said the state could
not impose $10 monthly
premiums on Medicaid
The Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid
Services also denied the
state's proposal to charge
$100 co-pays for any non-
emergency ER visits,
according to a letter sent
Thursday. Federal health
officials said the fees
violated several statutes
designed to protect nearly
3 million of state's most
Lawmakers passed the,
bills last year trying to rein
in the Medicaid budget
of more than $20 billion a
year and increase account-
ability for providers. Under
the plan, the government
pays private companies a
set amount for handling
a specific number of resi-
dents similar to a health
maintenance organization,
or HMO, in the private
sector. The companies, in
turn, decide how to care
for the patients, including
which doctors they can see
and what treatments can be
The privatization pro-
gram builds on a contro-
versial five-county pilot
program that started in
2006. Patients said they
struggled to get doctor's
appointments and doc-

tors dropped out of the
program complaining the
health plans denied the
treatments they prescribed.
Several health care provid-'
ers also.dropped out of
the program, saying they
couldn't turn a profit, leav-
ing patients to be deal with
gaps in services as they
were bounced between
There has also been
little data evaluating the
program. The state has not
tracked what services were
denied and it's unclear
whether the small amount
of savings was because
patients got less care or
because it was delivered
more efficiently.
Several outspoken
Democratic lawmakers,
including Rep. Elaine
Schwartz, have hammered
the importance of such "
data, worrying the for-prof-
it health providers will line
their pockets with adminis-
trative costs unless closely
monitored. Federal health
officials have insisted the
state require private health
plans to spend 85 percent
of funds on patient care.
"We hope this is just the
start of gutting this bad
program, and not a mere
sop to those of us who see'
Florida's'proposal as a true
gutting of the purposes of
Medicaid," Schwartz said.
Federal health officials
applauded, the state's desire
to cut down on unneces-
sary emergency room
visits and said they would

other alternatives to meet
that goal, according to the
Officials at Florida's

the CMS decisions, but
said they would continue

I Supporters said the legis-
lation fixed problems in the
pilot program by adding
increased oversight for pro-
viders and more stringent
penalties, including fining
providers up to $500,000
if they drop out. The mea-
sures also increase doctors'
reimbursement rates and

Adkins sings in front of college crush

WACO,.Texas Country music
star Trace Adkins' latest perfor-
mance was for his college crush.
Adkins sang the national anthem
before the top-ranked Baylor
women played Texas A&M on
Saturday. The Lady Bears are
coached by Kim Mulkey, who was
a pigtailed point guard for national
champion Louisiana Tech when
Adkins was a freshman walk-on
football player there.
"Now my secret's out that I've
had crush on her for 30 years,"
Adkins said before the game
When doing a cover version of
the song "One in a Million" during
a concert last year, Adkins relayed
the story of his college crush. After
Mulkey's sister later attended one
of his concerts, she got him on the
phone with Mulkey and they struck
up a friendship.
They were formally introduced
face-to-face for the first time before
Saturday's game.
"She had long braided pigtails
and she was phenomenal," Adkins
recalled of their college days.
"All the jocks ate at the training
table and that's where I would see
her, but she was a rock star and I'
couldn't talk to her."
Adkins said Mulkey didn't even
know who he was when they were
at Louisiana Tech.
On Saturday, she escorted Adkins
to midcourt, and he kissed her
hand before Mulkey went back to
the bench. He then performed the
anthem a cappella with his deep
When Mulkey was asked if she
noticed Atkins when they were in
school, the singer laughed and told'
her not to lie and say she did.
"I didn't know him because he
was some superstar football player,
but what I did know, there were
only two athletes who were ever
that tall at Louisiana Tech, at that
training table," Mulkey said, "And it
was Trace and Karl Malone ..,. So I
knew, kind of, who he was. But not

Grammys promise plenty
of intrigue and music
LOS ANGELES This year's
Grammy Awards promises plenty of
intrigue and drama much of it hav-
ing little to do with the competition
for awards.
Adele one of the key nominees
with six nods is performing for
the first time since having surgery
on her vocal cords. A group of
musicians upset that the Recording
Academy has cut the number of
awards have vowed to protest out-
side the Staples Center, where the
ceremony will be held. Chris Brown
and Rihanna will perform on the
same stage although at differ-
ent times for the first time since
Brown attacked her before the 2009
Grammys, forcing both to drop out
the show.
And the remaining Beach Boys
will reunite onstage for the first time
in years.
But Recording Ar.l- miyv President

and CEO Neil Portnow says that
music will still be paramount once
the show; which airs live on CBS,
kicks off on Sunday.
'This was a really terrific, exciting
year for music, so it will give us a
tremendous canvas to paint on," said
Portnow on Thursday.
Kanye West is the top nominee
with seven, including a best song
nomination for his "All of the Lights."
But his highly acclaimed "My
Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" and
'Watch The Throne," his collabora-
tion with Jay-Z, are not among the
nominees for best album, nor is he
up for record of the year.
Adele is nominated in all top cat-
egories. "21," the year's best-selling
album, is up for album of the year,
and her "Rolling in the Deep" is
up for song and record of the year.
Bruno Mars is also up for best album
for "Doo-Wops & Hooligans," and his
"Grenade" is a contender for record
and song of the year as well; he too
has six nominations, along with the
Foo Fighters, whose 'Wasting Light"
is up for album of the year.

foundation, but is still only an
According to the report, 1,024
teams participated in 34 tourna-
ments at the sports complex in
2011. The tournaments drew
40,800 participants, including
athletes, coaches, parents and
fans. Tourist council officials
estimated about half of the par-
ticipants spent the night at local
motels and campgrounds.
The Florida Sports
Foundation estimate of $5.5
million. ii direct spending
comes from the assumption
that one adult staying over-
night with a child will spend
more than $300 at local motels,
restaurants, gas stations and
other businesses during a typi-
cal tournament.
Campbell sent copies of the
report to elected officials, busi-
ness leaders and the media and
nobody questioned the conclu-
sions until DePratter.
"They felt like it was consis-
tently reasonable," Campbell
said. "I had to answer with a
sense of credibility."
Campbell said DePratter's
request last summer was help-

ful because his department
had never conducted a study to
determine the sports complex's
"DePratter's question really
needed an answer," he said in
his report.


Campbell said he stands by
the report he submitted last
month, but conceded there is
no way to prove its accuracy.
No study has been done to
determine the exact number of
rooms occupied in the county
from events at the sports com-
plex. And no study has tracked
the impact to restaurants, rec-
reation facilities and other busi-
Campbell said $558,224 was
generated in county bed taxes
in 2011. But he said there is
no way to determine an exact
amount generated by sporting
events that led to overnight
Campbell said he has' asked
the state sports foundation to
improve its financial impact
methodology so its accuracy

can be quantified locally.
"It's in our interest to cap-
ture information that is fairly
accurate," he said. "We're
entitled to a better answer."
Tourism officials may have
to provide more information
before DePratter votes to sup-
port funding as much as $3.8
million in improvements at
the complex.
The tourist council is
expected vote on a 1-cent
bed tax increase at the Feb.
15 meeting, Campbell said.
The increase would generate
about $200,000 in annual rev-
enue that would be used for
improvements at the sports
Campbell said tourism
board members haven't decid-
ed whether to retire the 1-cent
tax after the improvements
are complete or if they will
continue to collect the tax for
future projects. The tax, cur-
rently at 3 cents, is charged to
visitors staying in hotel rooms
and campgrounds.
But the tourist council does
not have authority to impose
a bed tax increase only to
request one. County commis-

sioners must vote to approve
or reject the request.
The earliest the tax
increase on motel rooms
and campgrounds could go
into effect is this summer
- assuming commissioners
approve one of three options
they will be asked to consider.
When commissioners
receive the request sometime
in March, Campbell said they
will also be asked to fund half
the improvements proposed
for the sports complex. The
proposed improvements are
the result of feedback from
participants and organizers
of events at the complex,
Campbell said.
The proposed improve-
ments include better lighting
at the girls' baseball fields,
additional bathrooms and con-
cession stands, a paved park-
ing lot with the capacity to
hold 300 vehicles and work on
the entrance road leading into
the. complex.
Despite the expressed
need for improvements and
the prospect it could attract
more tournaments that will
generate business for local

merchants, DePratter isn't
convinced investing more
taxpayer money into the com-
plex is a wise decision. He
said other municipalities in
the region, including Alachua
County, are building sports
complexes that will compete
with Lake City.
Campbell said a sports
complex in Newberry will
open this summer, but it
is much smaller than Lake
City's. Campbell said orga-
nizers at the new complex
have signed an exclusive
agreement with Nation's
Baseball and no other pro-
moters will be allowed to
hold events there.
"I'm not worried [about the
Newberry complex] because
it's apples and oranges,"
SCampbell said.
The tourist council has
another option if commis-
sioners reject the request for
county funding next month.
"If the TDC wants to make
improvements, they can pay
for it," DePratter said. "Why
should I put up public funds?

HOUSTON: Celebrated singer found dead in hotel room; cause unknown
Continued From Page 1A

Houston's end came
on the eve of music's big-
gest night the Grammy
Awards, It's a showcase
where she once reigned,
and her death was sure
to cast a heavy pall on
Sunday's ceremony..
Her longtime mentor
Clive Davis was to hold his
annual concert and dinner
Saturday, and a represen-
tative of the show said it
would proceed.
Producer Jimmy Jam,
who had worked with
Houston, said he antici-
pated the evening would
become a tribute to her,
and he expected there to
be one at the Grammys as
Houston was supposed
to appear at the gala,
and Davis had told The
Associated Press that she
would perhaps perform:
"It's her favorite night of
the year ... (so) who knows
by the end of the evening,"
he said,
Houston had been at
rehearsals for the show
Thursday, coaching sing-
ets Brandy and Monica,
according to a person who
was at the event but was
not authorized to speak
publicly about it. The per-
son said Houston looked
disheveled, was sweating
profusely and liquor and
cigarettes could be smelled
on her breath.
Two days ago, she per-
formed at a pre-Grammy
party with singer Kelly
In a statement, Recording
Academy President and
CEO Neil Portnow said
Houston "was one of the
world's greatest pop sing-
ers of all time who leaves
behind a robust musical
soundtrack spanning the
past three decades."
"Her powerful voice
graced many memorable
and award-winning songs,"
SPortnow said. "A light has
been dimrmed in our music
community today, and we
extend our deepest con-
dolences to her family,
friends, fans and all who
have been touched by her
beautiful voice."
At her peak, Houston
was the golden girl of the
music industry. From the
middle 1980s to the late
1990s, she was one of the
world's best-selling artists.
She wowed audiences with
effortless, powerful, and
peerless vocals that were
rooted in the black church
but made palatable to the
masses with a pop sheen.
Her success carried her
beyond music to movies,
where she starred in hits
like "The Bodyguard" and
'.Waiting to Exhale."
She had the perfect voice
and the perfect image: a
gorgeous singer who had
sex appeal but was never

overtly sexual, who main-
tained perfect poise.
She influenced a genera-
tion of younger singers,
from Christina Aguilera to
Mariah Carey, who when
she first came out sound-
ed so much like Houston
that many thought it was
But by the end of her
career, Houston became a
stunning cautionary tale of
the toll of drug use. Her
album' sales plummeted
and the hits stopped com-
ing; her once serene image
was shattered by a wild
demeanor and bizarre pub-
lic appearances. She con-
fessed to abusing cocaine,
marijuana and pills, and her
once pristine voice became
raspy and hoarse, unable
to hit-the high notes as she
had during her prime. .
It was a tragic fall for a
superstar who was one of
the top-selling artists in pop
music history, with more
than 55 million records
sold in the United States
She seemed to be born
into greatness. She was
the' daughter of gospel
singer Cissy Houston, the.
cousin of 1960s pop diva
Dionne Warwick and the
goddaughter of Aretha
Houston first started
singing in the church as a
child. In her teens, she sang
backup for Chaka Khan,
Jermaine Jackson and oth-
ers, in addition to model-
ing. It was around that time
when music mogul Clive
Davis first heard Houston
"The time that I first saw
her singing in her moth-
er's act in a club ... it was
such a stunning impact,"

Davis told "Good Morning
'To hear this young girl
breathe such fire into this
song. I mean, it really sent
the proverbial tingles up
my spine," he added.
Before long, the rest of
the country would feel it,
too. Houston made her
album debut in 1985 with
"Whitney Houston," which
sold millions and spawned
hit after hit "Saving All My
Love for You" brought her
her first Grammy, for best
female pop vocal. "How Will
I Know," "You Give Good
Love" and '"The Greatest
Love of All" also became
hit singles.
Another multiplatinum
album, "Whitney," came
out in 1987 and included
hits like "Where Do Broken
Hearts Go" and "I Wanna
Dance With Somebody."
Her decision not to
follow the more soulful
inflections of singers like
Franklin drew criticism by
some who saw her as play-
ing down her black roots
to go pop and reach white
audiences. The criticism
would become a constant
refrain through much of
her career. She was even
booed during the "Soul
Train Awards" in 1989.
"Sometimes it gets down
to that, you know?" she
told Katie Couric in 1996.
"You're not black enough
for them. I don't know.
You're not R&B enough.
You're very pop. The white
audience has taken you
away from them."
Some saw her 1992
marriage to former New
Edition member and soul
crooner Bobby Brown as
an attempt to refute those
critics. It seemed to be an

odd union; she was seen as
pop's pure princess while
he had a bad-boy image,
and already had children of
his own. (The couple had a
daughter, Bobbi Kristina,
in 1993.) Over the years, he
would be arrested several
times, on charges ranging
from DUI to failure to pay
child support.
But Houston said their
true personalities were not
as far apart as people may
have believed.
"When you love, you love.
I mean, do you stop lov-
ing somebody because you
have different images? You
know, Bobby and I basically
come from the same place,"
she told Rolling Stone in
1993. 'You see somebody,
and you deal with their
image, that's their image.-
It's part of them, it's not
the whole picture. I am not
always in a sequined gown.
I am nobody's angel. I can
get down-and dirty. I can
get raunchy."
It would take several
years, however,, for the
public to. see that side of

Houston. Her moving 1991
rendition of "The Star
Spangled Banner" at the
Super Bowl, amid the first
Gulf War, set a new stan-
dard and once again reaf-
firmed her as America's
In 1992, she became a
star in the acting world with
"The Bodyguard." Despite
mixed reviews, the story of
a singer (Houston) guarded
by a former Secret Service
agent (Kevin Costner) was
an international success.
It also gave her perhaps
her most memorable hit: a
searing, stunning rendition
of Dolly Parton's "I Will
Always Love You," which
sat atop the charts for
weeks. It was Grammy's
record of the year and best
female pop vocal, and the
"Bodyguard" soundtrack
was named album of the
But during these career
and personal highs,
Houston was using drugs.
In an interview with Oprah
Winfrey in 2010, she said
by the time "The Preacher's

Wife" was released in 1996,
"(doing drugs) was an
everyday thing. ... I would
do my work, but after I did
my work, for a whole year
or two, it was every day.
... I wasn't happy by that
point in time. I was losing
In the interview, Houston
blamed her rocky marriage
to Brown, which included a
charge of domestic abuse
against Brown in 1993.
They divorced in 2007.
Houston would go to
rehab twice before she
would declare herself drug-
free to Winfrey in 2010.
But in the interim, there
were missed concert dates,
a stop at an airport due
to drugs, and public melt-
She was so startlingly
thin during a 2001 Michael
Jackson tribute concert
that rumors spread she
had died the next day. Her
crude behavior and jittery
appearance on Brown's
reality show, "Being Bobby
Brown," was an example of
her sad decline.

According to researchers,

The study, based on
national surveys in schools,
and released by the CDC on
the Internet Feb. 6, reports
that over 22 percent of teens
and preteens were exposed
to secondhand smoke in cars
in 2009.
People quit smoking for all
sorts of reasons, most often
because of health concerns,
either their own or those of
loved ones. Smokers know
their habit isn't healthy. But
outlawing a legal activity
isn't as much of a deter-

A parent who smokes with
children in the car, accord-

jeopardizing the children's
health. Why would a parent
who is normally sometimes
overly concerned about the
sniffles not understand the
danger? Thus the CDC study
is properly advising against
the practice. The study
authors, with all good inten-
tions, have encouraged all
states to follow the lead of a
few that have banned smok-

An energy boom looms,

despite Obama

ven the worst of
presidents can-
not stop the best
of times, and it's
beginning to look
as if an unprecedented energy
boom just might save President
Barack Obama's re-election,
despite his undying efforts to
thwart energy development.
He's worked hard at it, you
know, and few things I've
read sum it up better than a
Wall Street Journal article by
Stephen Moore. He interviewed
Harold Hamm, an oil-company
CEO who first discovered the
Bakken oil fields in Montana
and North Dakota, which was
a bit like discovering gold in
California in the 19th century
but more than that This is big,
big, big, maybe 24 billion bar-
rels' worth of big, $18 trillion
worth of big.
Ho-hum, said Obama when
Hamm talked to him on one
occasion about all of this.
According to what Hamm told
Moore, the president said oil
and gas may count for some-
thing for a few years, but that
the future is green, that things
like battery-driven cars will
save us. And here is a guy who
walks his talk in more ways
than central-planning goofs
that give us such mistakes as

Jay Ambrose

a Solyndra solar-panel firm the
sun failed to shine on.
Did the moratorium on Gulf
of Mexico oil drilling go too far
after the Deepwater Horizon oil
spill? Plenty of experts argue
that case, and an online article
in Forbes estimates losses of
$21.4 billion in investment and
91,000 jobs.
The great craziness here
is that even if you believe
green-energy production is the
ultimate answer for us, it will *
take years to get there unless
sustained poverty is your game.
Otherwise, we absolutely need
oil, gas and coal. We have
them, and we have them in
such quantity that good days
are coming as soon as devel-
opment gets going full steam
ahead. They will come much
slower than necessary, but they
will come.
The energy boom largely
a consequence of a horizon-

tal drilling technique called
cracking has already cre-
ated 158,000 new energy jobs.
Here is what the American
Petroleum Institute projects
fairly soon, as reported by
-Forbes: 204,000 new jobs in
Ohio, 17,000 in West Virginia,
76,000 in Pennsylvania, 20,000
in New York. A lot of this is
happening now and boosting an
economic recovery in a country
that refuses to be defeated by
pork-ridden stimulus packages,
an overreaching EPA or regula-
, tions that would simply kill off
ordinary people without the,..
blessing of great resources.
But don't suppose Obama
can't wreck us in other ways, as
in refusing to seriously address
deficits and debt or in loading
us with a health plan that will
make things worse, not better,
or with a regulatory scheme
that will keep us much poorer
than we need to be, hurting the
poor worse than anyone. An
improving economy will help
him, but electoral thoughtful-
ness can yet defeat him.

Women ask for too much, settle for too little

'm increasingly convinced
that today when it comes
to matters of the heart,
too many women ask for
too much and settle for
too little.
Yes, I'm inevitably consid-
ering such things because
Valentine's Day approaches.
But it's also because a little
self-promotion to follow that
is a theme of my new book,
"From The Hart A Collection
of Favorite Co'umns on Love,
Loss, Marriage (and Other
Extreme Sports)" (Kindle
It features some three dozen
columns on love, marriage and
romance that I've written since
I myself became unexpect-
edly single in 2004. With some
new narrative interspersed, of
In this space I've discussed
both sides of this equation
before: meaning, women expect
their men to be the romantic
caricatures portrayed in the
typical chick flicks, seemingly
wanting their guy to be their
best gal pal, too. But at the same
time, they often find themselves
asking, "Does he really want
me, and why aren't we getting
married?" That's while making
themselves sexually available
to him outside of marriage, and
even feeling a little "pushy" to
want their fellow to want rpar-
riage at all.
Here's what I mean. There's a

joke going around that a woman
goes to the "Find a Husband"
department store. At every level
she has the chance to accept
what's there, or go up one level
where it gets better, but she
can't go back. By level four, the
men are good-looking, make
good money and are kind. By'
level seven, they are all that and
sensitive and share their feel-
ings. At level nine, however, a
sign greets her. It says, "You are
woman No. 8 million to reach
this level. There are no men
here; the floor exists to show
that women are impossible to
In contrast, the men go to the
"Find a Wife" store. By level
two, they've found gals who
keep themselves nice-looking,
and like sex and beer. One man
finally asks what is on level
three. He's told that no one
I think this sells the guys a lit-
tle short, but you get the point
Yes, I do believe that many
women are asking for too much.
Meanwhile, it's still true

that many women want to be
pursued by a man, and that's a
good thing. But for some, if it's
not flowers and love poems -
like in the chick flicks they get
discouraged. For others, they
think the desire to be pursued
is old-fashioned, so they drop it
What so few women seem
to insist upon, though, is a real
suitor. A good man wants the
woman he loves to know that
she is wanted. Whether or not
there are flowers or love notes
involved, it will simply be natu-
ral for him to make sure she is
secure in his honest intentions
of marriage for her. Everything
about their relationship will be
moving toward that natural con-
clusion in a timely way.
That's real, manly pursuit, and
the kind I see fewer and fewer
women willing to expect
Here they are settling for too
I'm increasingly persuaded
that we have turned love on
its head, and as I collected my
columns from over the years,

way to me. "From The Hart" is

side up again.

to Homs

The violent repres-
sion of Syrian activ-
ists is accelerating,
and there is no
international con-
sensus on halting the killings.
The Arab Spring has reached
its limits in the besieged and
bloody city of Homs.
The 10-month long struggle
against the regime of Bashar
Assad is reaching new levels
of violence. Dissident forces
have swelled with new defec-
tions from the military, and
they have skirmished with
regime units on the outskirts
of Damascus. Understanding
that he is in a fight for his life,
Mr. Assad has responded with
particular brutality.
The humanitarian argument
for intervention in Syria now is
stronger than it was last year in
Libya. Civilian deaths in Syria
are five times what they were in
Libya when President Obama
declared action a moral impera-
tive. Battered by the Syrian
army, the city of Homs has
become a charnel house. Men,
women and children are being
indiscriminately cut down by
artillery fire and deliberately
by snipers. Corpses and body
parts are strewn in the streets,
but it is impossible to, flee the
carnage because all escape
routes are sealed.
Some members of the
international community are
blocking efforts to stem the
violence. Last week, Russia
and China used their veto
power in the United Nations
Security Council to kill a reso-
lution regarding Syria that was
far less potent than Security
Council Resolution 1970,
which authorized the use of
"all necessary measures" to
protect Libya's civilian popula-
tion. Russian Prime Minister
Vladimir Putin later said that he
favored limiting the ability of
both sides in Syria from using
weapons, but added the inter-
national community must "not
interfere under any circum-
stances," which makes impos-
ing limits on force problematic.
What this amounts to is a green
light for the regime to continue
On Tuesday Mr. Assad
promised an end to bloodshed
in his country, after previously
denying that any such kill-
ings are taking place. Internal
regime emails obtained by
the hacker group Anonymous
and released this week reveal
that this is part of a media
strategy aimed at reducing
international pressure. A mes-
sage from Sheherazad Jaafari,
press attache at Syria's U.N.
mission, noted that in a planned
December interview with
Barbara Walters of ABC News,
"It is hugely important and
worth mentioning that 'mis-
takes' have been done in the
beginning of the crises because
we did not have a well-orga-
nized 'police force.' American
psyche can be easily manipu-
lated when they hear that there
are 'mistakes' done and now we
are 'fixing it'"
The critical issue may be less
the malleable American psyche
than election-year dynamics
and the surfeit of caution within
the Obama administration. One
lesson of the intervention in
Libya was that "smart power"
takes longer to be effective
than other more direct meth-
ods. At the onset of the inter-
vention in Libya, Mr. Obama
gave the impression that the
operation would last days,
and not weeks. Nonetheless,
it ground on for months. The
White House may not want to
start something it won't be able
to wrap up by Election Day. It
would be hard to campaign on

Houseguest makes meth,

lands in jail, police report


A Lake City man is probably going to
be more selective of his house guests in
the future.
The property owner allowed Benjamin
Sherrod, 28, to spend Thursday night
at his house at 448 NE Tammy Lane.
When the home owner woke up Friday
morning, he called the Columbia County
Sheriff's Office after Sherrod entered
a vacant mobile home on the property
without permission.
The property owner, who was not iden-
tified by authorities, told deputies that
suspicious odors' were coming from the
trailer and he believed Sherirod might be
doing something illegal.

When two deputies arrived to investi-
gate, the person inside the trailer threw
an object into the yard from the back
door. Deputies found a 2-liter plastic
bottle that was being used to manu-
facture methamphetamine, according to
Deputies found additional materials in
the trailer that were consistent with man-
ufacturing methamphetamine, according
to the report
Sherrod was taken into custody with-
out incident and transported to the

He is charged with burglary, manufac-
ture of methamphetamine, possession
of methamphetamine with intent to sell
or deliver, tampering with evidence and

Ill. woman faces burglary charge


An Illinois woman was arrested Friday
after investigators say homeowners on
SW King Street caught her in the act of
burglarizing their home.
The homeowners came home for lunch
and saw a suspicious vehicle parked in
their carport and an entrance door win-
dow broken.
The woman, who Columbia County
deputies later identified as Elizabeth
McCarthy, 52, of Rockford, Ill., ran from
the house when the couple arrived. The
male homeowner attempted to detain

McCarthy, but she escaped his grasp and
fled in her vehicle, according to reports.
Authorities stopped McCarthy near
the intersection of State Road 47 and Elim
Church Road a short time later. Deputies
later learned the car she was driving was
reported stolen from Enterprise Leasing
in Illinois. ,
McCarthy was arrested on stolen vehi-
cle charges and taken back to the bur-
glary scene where the homeowners were
able to positively identify her, according
to the report.
She was transported to the Columbia
County Jail where she was charged with
burglary, grand theft auto and criminal
mischief. Her bail was set at $42,000.

begins at 9 a.m. at the Florida Department
of Transportation Office on Marion
Avenue. .
"In addition to all the law enforcement
and emergency vehicles, we have a little
over 50 entries," said Scarlet P. Frisina,

who is serving in her second year as the
Olustee Battle Festival parade chair.
A new feature in the 2012 parade will be
a horse-drawn glass-encased hearse.
"It will be like the one that carried
President Lincoln," she said. "We're doing
this in honor of all of Civil War veterans.
There will be an old fashioned coffin inside
the hearse that will be draped with a Union
flag and a Copfederate flag and it will be
escorted by two Union soldiers and two
Confederate soldiers. It's also going to be
followed by re-enactors who are portray-
ing mourners."
When the hearse gets to the intersec-
tion of U.S. Highway 90 (Duval Street) and
Marion Street, it will stop and a bugler will
play Taps.
"We've had'the riderless horses in the
past, but this year instead we are hav-
ing the horse-drawn hearse to honor our
Civil War dead," Frisina said. "I hope that
evokes emotion in people the way it does
for me. I hope it helps them to realize it's
not an abstract thing we're looking at, that
it really did happen and people really did
lay down their lives."

TITLE: Lake City girl is crowned
Continued From Page 1A

"It feels amazing to be the
new Miss Florida Teen USA
queen," Martinez said. "I'm
so -excited and so honored
to have this opportunity
and I can't wait to represent
Florida at Miss Teen USA."
Grant Gravitt Jr., execu-
tive producer of the Miss
Florida Teen USA pageant
and Tel-Air Interests, which
produces both the Miss
Florida Teen USA and Miss
Teen USA pageants, said
Martinez was given her
crown on Feb. 3.
The pageant took place
Oct. 1-3 in Hollywood, at the
Broward College's Bailey
Concert Hall with 57 con-
testants vying for the title of
Miss Florida Teen USA and
scholarship funds.
Martinez, 15, was compet-
ing as the Marion County rep-
resentative. She is the daugh-
ter of Marilynn and Marty
Martinez. Marty Martinez is
employed in Ocala.
"We're just so very proud
of her," Marilynn Martinez
said. "I think its going to be
wonderful for her. I think
pageants are just such a
wonderful experience for
the young girls and it just
, opens a lot of doors. It's a
great opportunity. We're just
looking forward to her rep-
resenting Florida in the sum-
mer. Ifs a very good family
bonding experience."
Last week Martinez offi-
cially became the queen.
"She came down and

signed her contract in
Miami, where she did a
fashion shoot," Gravitt said.
"Unfortunately the winner
couldn't complete her reign
and in the classic tradition
of pageants, she (Martinez)
was the first runner up and
she'll get all the spoils."
The spoils in this instance
includes a $40,000 college
scholarship, a personal
appearance contract and. the
right to compete in the Miss
Teen USA pageant
Martinez said her duties
as queen will entail giving
back to the community and
being a positive role model.
"I want to show all kinds
of girls that with a positive
outlook and self confidence
you can, go very far," she
Although Martinez said
she doesn't have an official
platform, she said he plans
to focus her attention on a
campaign to bring aware-
ness to the dangers of tex-
ting and driving.
Lastweek she participated
in a professional photo shoot
to announce her reign as the
Miss Teen Florida USA.
"It was so much fun," she
said. "I liked how I did it and
I was wearing no makeup, so
it shows the real me. Ifs not
glam shots, or people with
an airbrush or Photoshop,
so it really shows my real
personality and how I look.
It was amazing."

With our taxes, Florida School Districts will be testing Biology 1 public

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

Wolfson converted the last two
free throws for the final score.
"I was pleased with the effort,"
Jefferson said. "We could have rolled
over, but we didn't That showed the
character of our team. As bad as we
played, we only lost by four points
and that shows how good we could
be. We played the last three minutes
on a mission. We just have to play
that way the entire game."
Foster led the Tigers with '12
points. Marshall and Atkinson each
finished with 10 points,
Amerson scored seven points.
Laremy Tunsil and Wyche finished
with five points apiece. David Morse

Florida State's Bernard James blocks the shot of Miami's Durand Scott in the first half of
the Seminoles' 64-59 win on Saturday in Tallahassee on Saturday.

Seminoles cool

off Hurricanes

Associated Press

Bernard James scored 15
of his 18 points in the sec-
ond half and No. 15 Florida
State remained in the hunt
for its first Atlantic Coast
Conference championship
with a 64-59 victory over
Miami on Saturday.
"He's a cool custom-
er," Florida State coach
Leonard Hamilton said of
the 6-foot-10 James. "When
we start executing better,
it makes it easier for him."
James, who is shooting
60 percent from the floor
this season, missed four
of his five attempts in the
first half. But he went, 7
for 8 from the field after
the break and matched
his career-high point total
as the Seminoles ended

Miami's longest win streak
in ACC play at five.
Michael Snaer had 12
points and Ian Miller fin-
ished with 11 for Florida
State (17-7, 8-2).
Hamilton made some
changes at halftime to try
and give James a bit more
operating room inside.
"We had a difficult time
getting him going because
of the defensive job that
Reggie Johnson was
doing," Hamilton said. "His
massive body throws you
off. You end up bouncing
off of him."
It paid off in a couple
of ways, with the 6-10,
285-pound Johnson wear-
ing down and playing just
11 minutes in the second
half. He finished with four
points a week after scor-
ing 27 points to lead the

Hurricanes to a 78-74 over-
time win at Duke.
* At halftime, Florida
State retired the jersey of
Dave Fedor, who averaged
20.2 points a game during
his college career between
1960 and 1962 and was the
school's first player select-
ed in the NBA draft.

Vols 75, Gators 70
Golden scored 17 points,
Jeronne Maymon added
15 points, and Tennessee
ended the Gators', home-
winning streak at 19.
Wearing gray uniforms

national championships
in 2006-07, ,Florida trailed
by double digits early and
never mustered anything
resembling comeback.

perfect control."
Of course, the bats were
still there for the Lady
Tigers as well.
Kayli Kvistad added to,
her season total by homer-
ing for the third time in as
many games.
Michaela Burton joined
the club with her first shot
of the season. She finished

the game with three hits
including a double and
scored two runs.
Stephanie Pilkington also
had multiple hits reaching
base twice with doubles ,
including one off the fence
that was just short of giving
her a third home run on the
year to join Kvistad for the
team lead.
"Ifs kind of funny that a

few years ago when these
girls were freshmen we
were leading the area in
stolen bases and playing
small ball," Willi4ms said.
"Now we kind of live by the
long ball. It's amazing how
it's evolved."
Columbia looks to keep
the long ball going as it
travels to Gainesville High
at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.

Woods in the hunt at Pebble

Associated Press
- Coming off an early
bogey that put him eight
shots behind, Tiger Woods
was in a bunker to the left of
the 13th fairway at Pebble
Beach when he cut a 9-iron
too much, sending it right
of the green toward -deep
The ball caromed off a
mpund and onto the green
and started rolling. And roll-
ing. When it finally settled a
foot below the hole, and
the gallery's cheers grew
increasingly louder, Woods
hung his head and smiled.
He went from, possible
bogey to unlikely birdie.
And with five birdies in
a six-hole stretch, he went
from the, periphery of con-
tention to the thick of it
Saturday in the Pebble
Beach National Pro-Am,
another step toward show-
ing his game is on the way
"Looked like I was having
a tough time making par,
and I was making birdie,
and off we go," Woods said.
"Sometimes, we need those
types of momentum swings
in a round, and from there,
I made some putts.".
If nothing else, he made
it interesting going into the
final round of his PGA Tour

Leader Charlie Wi follows his shot off the 17th tee of the
Pebble Beach Golf Links during the second round of the
Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament on Friday.

Charlie Wi played bogey-
free at Spyglass Hill for
a 3-under 69 to build a
three-shot lead over Ken
Duke, who had a 65 on the
Shore Course at Monterey
Woods had a 5-under 67
and climbed within four
shots of the lead. It's the
closest he has been to a 54-
hole leader on the PGATour
since the 2010 Masters.
Sunday will have some
star power.
Not only is Woods in the
penultimate group right
in front, of two players who
have never won on the PGA
Tour he will be in the
same group as longtime

nemesis Phil Mickelson,
who had a 70 at Pebble
Beach despite playing the
par 5s in 1 over.
Still in the mix is two-
time Pebble Beach champi-
on Dustin Johnson, former
world No. 1 Vijay Singh and
three-time major champion
Padraig Harrington, who
was two shots off the lead
at one point until a sloppy
finish at Spyglass for a 72.
Wi is 0-for-162 on the
EGA Tour and now has to
face his demons of self-
doubt along with a famil-
iar force in golf.
With a new swing, it's

And those merchants are

Florists said Valentine's
Day is by far the busiest
day of the year. It's also
the most frenzied because
the majority of customers
are men, and they typically
don't plan ahead.
Cecey Larramore, owner

began pre-ordering flowers
and other supplies before
Christmas. She has hired
extra staff to work through
the weekend processing
orders and will have as
many as nine drivers deliv-

Too Many Shares?
Q General Electric hasn't split.
its shares since 2000. Is that
because it has too many shares
outstanding already? -
C.G., Augusta, Ga.
Alt doesn't typically work
that way. Splits often take
place when a stock's price is
deemed too high. Splits can be
largely a psychology-driven event,
making a stock look "cheaper" to
some investors. If srs. If stocks never
split, then a single share of some
big companies would cost as
much as a car or house.
General Electric does have a
lot of shares more than 10
billion. The number of shares
isn't a measure of a company's
size, though. Sirius XM Radio
has close to 4 billion shares, for
example, while Boeing has fewer
than a billion.
What matters much more than
stock splits or numbers of shares is
how strong a firm is, how quickly
it's growing, how successfully it's
competing and how each share's
value is increasing.
General Electric recently posted
operating earnings per share for
2011 up 22 percent over year-ago
levels. The company's backlog
of infrastructure-related orders, at
$200 billion, set a record.

Q How do you rebalance a
portfolio?- M.D.,
Ne-wark, N.J ,
A Imagine that three years
ago you invested half
your nest egg in stocks and N
half in bonds. If you want to
keep that balance, but your stocks
have grown to become 60 percent
of your portfolio, you might sell
some stock and. add to your
bond holdings
Rebalancing means adjusting
the percentage of your portfolio
represented b) variouss holdings
such as stocks, bonds. etc.) b) j
reallocating your money. Don't
overdo it, though. If your port-
folio changes from 50 percent
stocks to 51 percent. that's not
cause for alarm.

Choosing a Brokerage
If you're ready to invest in stocks,
a brokerage account will come in
handy. Opening one is not much
more complicated than opening a
bank account, but you should do
some research first, to choose the
brokerage that best serves your
needs. Consider the following as
you compare contenders:
Costs. Find out how much each
will charge you in commissions per
trade. It can vary from $7 or less to
more than $100. See what other fees
are charged, too, such as IRA custo-
dian fees, wire transfer fees, account
inactivity fees, annual fees, etc.
Minimum initial deposit. Some
brokerages require at least several
thousand dollars, while others. have
no minimum.
Usability and service. Check to
see how easy its online trading sys-
tem is to use. Ask some questions
of the customer service department
to see how responsive it is.
Bankingiservices. Some broker-
ages now offer check-writing, money
market accounts, credit cards, ATM
cards, direct deposit and more. Look

for these if you want them.
Research. Want free company
research reports? Many brokerages
offer these.
Mutual funds. The range
of funds offered by brokerages
varies widely. If you're interested
in particular funds, check to see
whether they're available. Know,
though, that you can usually buy
into funds directly from their
companies, bypassing brokerages.
(Learn more at fool.com/
and morningstar.com.)
Non-stock offerings. If you're
interested in bonds, for example,
see whether they're offered.
Convenience. Would you
rather place trade orders through.
an actual person, your phone or
online? See which brokerages offer
what you want.
Some of these factors are more
important than others. For example,
if you trade only twice a year, com-
mission costs shouldn't matter too
much. Make a list of all the services
you need and how vital they are
- then evaluate each contender on
each measure. For more guidance,.

My dumbest investing move was

Alas, that was partly the com-
pany's downfall, as commercials
are a critical component in the
broadcasting business, and broad-
casters didn't like that feature. The
company was sued by a group of
28 big media companies, and after
spending a lot of money on legal
wrangling, filed for bankruptcy
protection. Its ReplayTV assets
eventually ended up in the hands of
DirecTV. Unfortunately, having the
technology survive through bank-
ruptcies doesn't help the original
shareholders. G.H., online

Procter & Gamble
in 2012
How will Procter & Gamble
(NYSE: PG) fare in 2012? Well, if
the economy is weak, consumers
may not stop shaving or brush-
ing their teeth, but they may forgo
higher-end items such as tooth-whit-
ening products and may even pass up
name brands such as Crest and Tide
in favor of private-label products.
In the meantime, P&G and its
peers have been juicing their growth
rates by expanding their reach into
emerging markets. The slice of
P&G's sales that came from outside
the U.S. expanded from 62 percent
in fiscal 2010 to 63 percent in fiscal
2011. If a 1 percent change doesn't
sound like much to you, consider
that when we're talking about nearly
$83 billion in revenue, it represents
hundreds of millions of dollars.
. Then there are rising commod-
ity costs, which threaten profits.
P&G's strong brands do give it
more power to raise prices, but in a
tough economy that's problematic,
as price hikes may give customers
the excuse they need to trade down
or buy from a competitor.
Procter & Gamble's stock is
currently valued fairly and worth
holding, but it's not an irresistible
bargain. But with strong brands and
dependable operations, it shouldn't
give investors many sleepless nights.
Factor in a solid 3-percent-plus
dividend yield, and you may want to
consider it for your portfolio. (Motley

appeared there was quite
a bit of hysteria," he said. "So
anything new, there's always
some knee-jerk reaction
that makes us believe Well,
maybe it's not safe."'
Once a user shoots a puff
of calorie-free AeroShot into
his or her mouth, the lemon-
lime powder begins dissolv-
ing almost instantly. Each
siinlrh list container has up
to six puffs,
`T1e act of p)niiiiig it in
yotir inotllh is the act of
Li .iitliih .. so it's sort of
r,,M!ii''ii anid ,(hiin peo-
ple4 'lI- I I t)ime itln y take
the A\ :li. ii -v laugh
,, that it'W kind of a l iny

way of putting food in your
mouth," said Edwards, who
also came up with a breath-
able chocolate product a few
years back. *
Dr. Lisa Ganjhu, a gas-
troenterologist and internal
medicine doctor atNewYork-
based St Luke's-Roosevelt
Hospital, said people need to
be aware of how much caf-
feine they are ingesting.

"You want those 10 cups
of coffee, it will probably
take you a couple hours to
get through all that coffee
with all that volume that you
are drinking," Ganjhu said.
"With these inhale caffeine
canisters you can get that
in 10 of those little canisters
- so you just puff away and
you could be getting all of
that within the hour."

Even the product pack-
aging warns people not. to
consume more than three
AeroShots per day.
Northeastern University
students who sampled the
product recently gave it
mixed reviews.
"This tastes really good
and I think it rocks," student
Zack Huang said after puff-
ing onto a free sample before,
rushing to join a group of
friends who were walking
away from campus.
Still, one student was not.
happy with the taste, echo-
ing sentiment expressed
online by some consumers.
. People elsewhere vowed
they would never give up
their morning coffee.
"I want to brew it, I want
to stir it and I want to drink
it slowly as I absorb the caf-
feine," said longtime coffee
fan Mark Alexander.
The makers 'of AeroShot
appear to be aware of that
sentiment, declaring that the
product isn't about switch-
ing away from coffee, but
rather making it easier for
people with active lifestyles
to get their caffeine fix.
"AeroShot can be used in
a variety of settings incon-
venient for liquids, such
as when you study in the

library, board an airplane dr
get into the car for a long
drive," they say in the sec-
tion dedicated to frequently
asked questions on their
website. "It's easy to take
AeroShot with you when you
go biking, skiing, curling, or
any other activity -that con-
sumes energy."
AeroShot, manufactured
in France and the flagship
product of Cambridge-based
Breathable Foods Inc., is the
product of a conversation that
Edwards had with celebrity
French chef Thierry Marks
over lunch in the summer
of 2007.
"We were discussing
what interesting culinary
art experiments we might
do together and I had the
idea that we might breathe
foods since I've done a lot of
work over the last 10 or 15
years on medical aerosols,"
Edwards said.
The first venture Edwards
worked on with Harvard
students was the breathable
chocolate, called Le Whif.
Now he's preparing to pro-
mote a product called Le
Whaf, which involves put-
ting food and drinks in futur-
istic-looking glass bowls and
turning them into low-calorie
clouds of flavor.

of Lake City Florist, said he expects
at least a 10 percent increase in
business compared to last year
because Valentine's Day is on a
Tuesday. Sunday and Mondays are
the worst days for Valentine's Day
to fall because florists don't get as
many walk-in customers, he said.
"You're talking about men
ordering flowers for their girl-
friends," he said. "When it comes
to shopping, men wait until the
last minute. We're prepared for
last-minute customers."
George Ward, owner of Ward's
Jewlers, said business is always

brisk leading up to Valentine's
Day, but a good percentage of
customers mostly men wait
until the last minute to gift shop.
"Probably 30 to 40 percent
of our customers wait until
Valentine's Day to buy a gift," he
said. "We're typically pretty busy."
Restaurants are also bracing for
a busy day.
Crystal Ratliff, manager at
Texas Roadhouse, said her restau-
rant has does not accept reserva-
tions, but they do have call-ahead
seating. She expects extra busi-
ness several days in advance from

couples who celebrate early.
She said couples tend to be
more indulgent on Valentine's
Day, ordering that special cocktail
or glass of wine. And couples typi-
cally order appetizers and dessert
more than usual.
The restaurant will have extra
staff and plenty of food for people
to select, she said.
."Valentine's Day is one of the
bigger days of the year," Ratliff
said. "When you make it from
scratch, you have to be prepared.

Mickey Es

is ffll of



Live Oak one
Saturday around
noon, we pulled
up to a turn-of-
the-century former home
to a Live Oak family, with
huge white columns and
wide wrap round porch
expecting down home
southern fare. Once inside,
we were greeted by a sweet
waitress and offered a
table by one of the floor to
ceiling windows common
to old southern mansions.
Our first surprise was the
black clothed tables with
red napkins. The walls are
decorated with 1920's and
30's gangster memorabilia
and the sounds of New
Orleans style blues took us
back to a bygone era.
SMickey L's is truly a
family run operation: Dad,
Mickey, delivers take out,
washes dishes, ;mi,: s the .
grass and anything else
that needs to be done;
Mama, Mickey's wife, is
the baker and marinara
maker, Sister Number One
is the hostess and waitress
and Sister Number Two is
the head cook. Offering
an extensive menu that
includes a hearty selection
of appetizers, Italian, sea-
food and steak choices, all
homemade, Sister Number
One told us nothing comes
out of a box. The white
board specials included
several intriguing burgers:
The Aloha, The Ruben and
The Black & Blue; and
Fried Cat Fish Tacos.
Talking with Mickey
about their establishment,
they'd "been open about
four months, got their
doors open within two
weeks," he said, and sug-
gested we try a special
recipe that his wife cooked
up Fried Macaroni and
Cheese. Within short
order, we were enjoying
our second surprise: a
bite through the crispy,
crunchy outside unveiled
creamy, cheesy homemade
mac and cheese. We
asked for a small side of
their marinara to dip this
scrumptious concoction.
Mama really knows how to
make a perfectly seasoned,
chucky tomato sauce that
we're sure is a hit with
their pasta offerings too.
Having a tough time
deciding which burger to
try, we ordered the Fish
Tacos and asked them to
surprise us with one of the
burger specials.
The Fried Catfish Tacos,
three of them to be exact,
filled the plate with deep
fried flour tortillas (yep,
another surprise) loosely
shaped into a taco shell,
stuffed to the gills with
lightly fried Cajun sea-
soned catfish strips and
topped with the creamiest
chipotle slaw. A side of
light and fluffy hushpup-
pies, with a smattering
of corn and sweet onion,
rounded out the meal.
Our burger "surprise"
certainly wasn't your run-
of-the-mill fast food or

With less than a month until the show, the
window to showcase your business is clos-

second building is steadily filling up, said
Gordon. The show is also industry limited
on a first come, first served basis, he said.
Gordon said he urges businesses to regis-

Exhibitors will also

Vendors will also be sup-

The following recom-

from the UF Florida

Locate a site. Place your
garden close to a water

source. The site should get
at least six hours of direct
sunlight Vegetables plants
may also be included in
the landscape among orna-

Plan the layout. Plan
things out on paper,
including which veg-
etables you intend to plant
and where. Make a list of
everything you'll need.
Adjust Soil pH. Soil pH
is a measure of the soil
acidity. The best pH range
for vegetable gardens in
our sandy soil is between

pH 5.8 and 6.5. The Master

children are at least over-

are obese.
In the two years since she
launched her campaign, she
has brought substantial new

schools, families, restaurants,
grocery stores, doctors, local
communities and others to do
more to tackle the problem.
Robert Blendon,. a Harvard

Mrs. Obama has helped bring
about a shift in attitude, with
childhood obesity increasing-

problem rather than a person-

or chain variety. The Ruben
Burger, with two beef pat-
ties cooked to order, melted
Swiss cheese, a hearty
helping of sauerkraut and
creamy Thousand Island
dressing was definitely a
knife and fork burger! The
patties were juicy and had a
"just ground" freshness. A
side of fries made this more
of a meal for two.
Big fans of really good
Italian cannoli and having
been disappointed several
times, we were reluctant
to give it a go, but we had
been so pleasantly surprised
throughout the meal we
gave caution to the wind.
Split at our request, and a
perfect portion, the slightly
sweet Ricotta filling with
mini chocolate chips was
tenderly protected by a light
and crispy shell that reminds
us of some of the best this

Compost your organic
waste. As a home gardener,
you can help reduce the
amount of yard waste going
to landfills while providing
your own organic material.
Composting is easy to do
and yields a manure-like
organic fertilizer/soil con-
ditioner which is highly
beneficial to Florida soils.

have good drainage and a

Chatty boss's interruptions

keep work from being done

DEAR ABBY: My boss,
"Ms. M.," knows her stuff.
She's supportive, flexible
and communicates well
about what's happening
within the organization.
However, she spends most
of her time in my cubicle.
Shell start out in her office
and, 15 minutes later, slide
into my cubicle to show me
her kids' latest photos or
insist my colleagues and I
watch YouTube videos of
her favorite entertainers.
This happens continually
throughout the day. I have
to work from home in the
evenings to get anything
done. I have actually used
vacation time so I could fin-
ish a project without Ms.
M.'s constant interruptions.
I thought it was just me until
I got sick last year and was
out for several days. I got
"hate" email from my col-
leagues because the boss
was spending all her time in
THEIR cubicles!
.Meanwhile, contracts
don't get finalized, deadlines
are missed, phone calls go
unanswered and complaints
pile up. When she gets heat
from higher-ups, she'll work
on the weekend to make
things right. Thenr on Monday
morning she'll call a staff
meeting that lasts over an
hour, and we must listen to
her sour complaints and more
YouTube videos from the
weekend. It's maddening.
Ms. M. is like a'female
Nero fiddling while the

Abigail Van Buren

department burns. I want
to do my job during work-
ing hours. Any suggestions?
WATER. I do have one.
Because there is safety in
numbers, everyone in the
department who is affected
by this problem should dis-
cuss it as a group with Ms.
M's supervisor or boss. It
appears Ms. M. is confusing
her working relationships
with those that are personal.

DEAR ABBY: Five years
ago, while substitute teaching,
I met a man who was also a
substitute teacher. We would
often have lunch together in
the school cafeteria. "Lou"
told me he had been living
with a woman, "Meg," for
12 years, but that she had
begun developing Alzheimer's
disease. Her sons planned on
moving them into an assisted
living facility.
Several months ago, Lou
called and asked to take me
to lunch. At lunch he said he
is still living with Meg, but

plans to move into a place of
his own soon. He said he'd
like to start seeing me on a
regular basis. He gave me his
home phone number, but said
that if Meg answers, I should
tell her it's the school calling
him about a job.
I told him I'm not inter-
ested in seeing him until he
is actually living on his own,
but he keeps calling to get
me to change my mind. My
children. and my friends tell
me it would not be wrong
to start seeing Lou because
he's no longer actively
involved with the woman.
What's the right thing
ANSWERS: That you would
have second thoughts about
becoming involved with a
man who asks you to lie to
the woman he's been living
with for 17 years shows a lot
about your character. That he
would ask you to do other-
wise speaks not very flatter-
ingly about his.
You appear to be some-
one with high standards
and dignity. If you prefer to
wait until Meg and Lou are
no longer living together, I
respect that. And if his inter-
est in you is serious, he will
respect it, too.

Make Valentines stand out in 3-D

Here's a great way
to create cute and
personal cards.
Associated Press
Worried that your Valentines
will fall flat? Make them stand
out, literally, by incorporating
small treats like lollipops or
glow sticks.
If your child likes to ham it
up for the camera, this is a great
way to create a cute, personal-
ized Valentine. For the lollipop
version, take a picture of your
child with her hand in a fist
and arm outstretched. After the
picture is printed, cut small slits
through the card at the top and
bottom of the hand and slip the
lollipop stick through the slits,
so it appears as if she is holding
the treat
This idea has been making
the rounds of craft and photog-
raphy blogs for years I first
spotted an adorable version cre-
ated by Alissa Eng at 24-7-365.
blogspotcom in 2009. But it
wasn't until I saw another 3-D
Valentine created by Megan
Pyrah at Brassyapple.blogspot
com a few weeks
ago that I was
inspired to make For the

Pyrah printed a fist an'

As the mother of
a Star Wars-obsessed second
grader, I immediately decided
to combine the two ideas. I had
my son pose with a flash light
as his "hilt," cut a slit in the
card and added a glow stick -

The chance to play Jedi
knight was enough to convince
him to pose for a few pictures,
but if your child is being stub-
born or camera shy, you still
can create cute 3-D Valentines

4) If desired, use photo
editing software to remove
the background from the
image and replace it with
something else. For the
cards I created for my son
and nephew, I downloaded an

for Valentine's Day, but boys might prefer glow sticks, which
stand in for light sabers on Star Wars-themed cards.

stand in as models. He actually
ended up preferring a version I
made featuring one of his Lego
minifigures, and I borrowed my

1) If using a child as

stand in front of a blank
wall. For lollipop cards,
have the child hold his

2) If rising a toy, use
two pieces of cardstock to
make a backdrop. Place one
piece flat and the other leaning
up against a wall. Position the
toy on the paper with its arm
outstretched. Take a picture.
3) Use photo editing soft-
ware, crop your picture. If
you crop the images to 4-by-
6 inches, you can get them
printed at any large drugstore.
Or make them different sizes

NASA website and used that
for the background. You also
can add a message or your
child's name. For the lolli-
pop version, consider "I'm
sweet on you, Valentine."
For the Star Wars version,
try, "May the force be with

you, Valentine."
5) Print pictures.
6) Use scissors or a craft
knife to cut slits in the cards
to insert the lollipops or glow
sticks. If necessary, tape the
sticks on the back of the card
to secure.
