Water chief ouster 'mishandled'


David Still's departure from
SRWMD has left governing
board members divided.
By GORDON JACKSON
gjackson@lakecityreporter.com
The Suwannee River Water Management
District governing board vote that cost


executive director David Still his job on
Tuesday was supposed to be a vote of
confidence.
But Annette Long, action chair for the
environmental group Save Our Suwannee,
said the board's discussion quickly turned
into what she described as a "character
assassination" against Still.
Ironically, Still was not at the meet-
ing to defend himself because he was
in Tallahassee being reconfirmed by a


state senate committee to
another four-year appoint-
ment to the position -
based in part to a letter
of support signed by the
board in December.
Critics at the meeting
said Still didn't communi-
Still cate with board members
as well as they expected.
Supporters praised his job performance,


saying he did a good job with a limited
budget
"It was mishandled so badly," Long said.
"It's a shame they didn't keep him. They
said they definitely wanted someone who
could do exactly what they wanted him
to do."
Long questioned why Still was fired
when board had sent a letter to state leg-

trains teachers to use the panels in class-
room lessons, with a curriculum adhering to
Florida's Sunshine State Standards.
Fort White won the system in 2011 and
the panels were installed over winter break,
near the school's bus loop. Students, school

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS


Hosts suspended for Houston remarks


LOS ANGELES A Los Angeles
radio station has pulled two popular
talk radio hosts off the air for com-
ments they made about Whitney
Houston.
KFI AM 640 suspended John
Kobylt and Ken Chiampou, the hosts
of the "John and Ken Show," for
"making insensitive and inappropri-
ate comments about the late Whitney
Houston," it said in a statement
Thursday.
"Management does not condone,
support or tolerate statements of this
kind," the station said.
According to audio posted online at
UrbanInformer.com, the hosts called
the late singer a "crack ho" and said
she was "cracked out for 20 years."
Kobylt said in statement that he
and Chiampou "used language that
was inappropriate" and they "sincere-
ly apologize" to their listeners and to
-Houston's family.
"We made a mistake, and we accept
the station's decision," said Kobylt
The hosts, who broadcast their
show weekday afternoons, will return
to the airwaves Feb. 27. ,.

Family, friends gather for
Cornelius memorial service
LOS ANGELES Friends and fam-
ily gathered Thursday for a private
memorial service for "Soul Train"
creator and host Don Cornelius in Los
Angeles.
The service was
led by the Rev. Jesse':
Jackson, who arrived ,
early and perused
blowup photos of
Cornelius that were
positioned around
the lobby of Liberty Cornelius
Hall at Forest Lawn-
Hollywood Hills.
Jackson also presided over a private
cremation ceremony last week.


R&B music greeted celebrants, who
received a program with a smiling
image of Cornelius on the show and
the message, "As always in parting we
wish you ... Love, Peace and Soul!!!"
emblazed on the back cover.
A large photo of Cornelius in round-
rimmed glasses was projected on the
stage where more than a dozen floral
arrangements and other photos of
Cornelius were positioned.
Cornelius died Feb. 1 from a self-
inflicted gunshot wound. Since then,
tributes to him and the show he creat-
ed have been held around the country.

Penn meets Chavez, blasts
American right policies
CARACAS, Venezuela Actor Sean'
Penn criticized Republican presidential
candidates during a visit to Venezuela
on Thursday, saying that right-wing
policies in the United States aim to
Benefit the wealthy.
Penn made the remarks after meet-
ing with socialist President Hugo
Chavez at Venezuela's presidential pal-
ace, when he was asked by a reporter
about criticisms of
Chavez by some
Republican candidates.
SPenn said he
doesn't think 'the use
of those exploitive
sort of demonizationsl
will be very beneficial Penn
to this crew of candi-
dates."
"That would be the least amongst
their weaknesses," Penn said. "It's
never predictable what can happen in
anAmerican election, but we certainly
believe at this point that it's becoming
increasingly clear to the American '
people that the policies of the far right
are the policies of the rich, and that
they are to the exclusion of the middle
class and the poor, and that no society
has a future on that basis."


The Oscar-winning actor has
met with Chavez several times in
Venezuela and has a friendly relation-
ship with the leftist leader.
Penn attended a speech by Chavez
earlier. The president joked that he
thought the actor would be joining
the left-leaning Bolivarian Alliance,
or ALBA bloc, which includes some
of Venezutela's closest allies in Latin
America and the Caribbean.
Penn "is a good friend, not only
ours, of the cause of humanity, of
peace in the world," Chavez said dur-
ing the televised speech to graduating
medical students,
Chavez lauded Penn's efforts to
provide assistance to Haitians after the
devastating 2010 earthquake hit that
poor Caribbean country.,

McCullough once again
leaving 'General Hospital'
NEW YORK Longtime viewers
of "General Hospital" have watched
Kimberly McCullough grow up. She
; originated the role of Robin Scorpio
as a child in 1985 and will leave the
show this month.
I The actress first appeared in the
ABC soap opera at 7 years old as the
precocious Robin. In the soap genre,
child characters tend to inexplicably
age rapidly (referred to by fans as
soap opera rapid aging syndrome,
or SORAS) and get recast by older
actors to give them juicer story lines.
The "General Hospital" producers,
though, not only let McCullough age
on camera but gave her wiggle room
to come and go, like to attend New
York University.
The portrayal earned McCullough
two Daytime Emmy awards and criti-
cal acclaini for a plot line in which her
character's boyfriend Stone died of
AIDS. Around that time, Robin also
discovered she was HIV-positive.

Houses passes bill on
drug-abused babies
TALLAHASSEE A
bill that would create a
task force on babies born
addicted to their moth-
ers' prescription drugs
has passed in the Florida
House.
The measure (HB 227)
passed unanimously and
now goes to the Senate. A
similar bill (SB 402) has -
one more committee stop
in the Senate.
The legislation is a
top priority for Attorney
General Pam Bondi.
She said the task force
would be a first step toward
dealing with a burgeoning
problem associated with
the growth in prescription
drug abuse.
Top state officials includ-
ing Bondi would serve on
the panel. It would recom-
mend solutions focusing on
prevention and education.
Bondi says it's a public
health rather than law
enforcement matter as
some mothers don't realize
they are endangering their
babies.

Bill aims to overhaul
state alimony law
TALLAHASSEE A
House panel has given the
green light to a bill that
would overhaul what critics
say is the state's antiquated
alimony law.
Rep. Ritch Workman's
bill (HB 549) Thursday
cleared the House
Judiciary Committee by a
17-1 vote. The Melbourne
Republican said the mea-
sure would ensure alimony
is fair to both ex-spouses.
It would end "perma-
nent" lifetime alimony in
favor of 'long-term" sup-
port that has a foresee-
able end. A man with the
Florida Alimony Reform
group told the committee
he was still paying alimony
to his wife decades after
their divorce because she
refuses to work.


But a representative of'
the Florida Bar's family law
section said the bill had
flaws and asked Workman
to continue working with
him on a rewrite. A similar
bill is in the Senate.

Custody battle heads
to Supreme Court
TALLAHASSEE A
custody battle between two
lesbian former partners
now will be decided by the
Florida Supreme Court
An appeal in the case
was filed with the court
late Thursday. The women
were identified by initials
only.
One partner donated
an egg that was fertilized
and implanted in the other
partner. The relation- *
ship ended and the birth
mother moved herself and
the child to Australia with-
out telling the biological
mother. That woman later
located them.
The 5th District Court of
Appeal in Daytona Beach
last year sided with the
biological mother and said
both women have parental
rights to the child.'
A trial judge had earlier
ruled that the biological
mother had no parental
rights though he disagreed
with the law and hoped he
would be reversed.

House passes bill
inspired by death
TALIAHASSEE A
child protection bill filed
in response to the death
of an 11-year-old girl after
chronic abuse has cleared
the Florida House.
The bill (HB 803) passed
unanimously Thursday.
It now goes to the Senate
where a similar measure
(SB 2044) is awaiting a final
committee hearing.
The Department of
Children and Families
proposed the legislation fol-
lowing the death of Nubia
Barahona. Her decompos-
ing body was found in her


father's truck along an
interstate in South Florida a
year ago.
The bills include changes
in abuse hotline procedures
and training and higher pay.
for child abuse investiga-
tors.
There's also a require-
ment tofingerprint and
conduct background
checks on all over-18 mem-.
bers of households where
children are placed and
the creation of a central
database for child abuse
reports.

Carpenters seek pay
for courthouse work
MIAMI A group of 40
construction workers is
seeking back wages for'
carpentry and other work
performed on Miami-Dade
County's new courthouse.
The group protested
Thursday outside the con-
struction site over roughly
$1,500 they say each is
owed. Many of the work-
ers have been at the site
since October but haven't
been paid in two weeks,
said carpenter Jackson
Contreras, 31.
The men's claims come
as state lawmakers are
considering bills that
would void a Miami-Dade
measure approved in 2010
to create a streamlined
administrative process for
workers like Contreras
seeking unpaid wages.
The bills filed by .state Sen.
David Simmons and Rep.
Tom Goodson ban coufi-
ties from addressing wage
theft. They say workers
should go through the
court system.
Contreras says he has
yet to file a wage theft
complaint in small claims
court because he fears it
will take too long to get
resolved. Besides, the
cost of filing even in small
claims court would be
$175, too much for a family
already living from pay-
check to paycheck.

The legacy of William Haddock Cone


By Mary Jane Weaver
Special to the Lake City Reporter
The 2012 descendants of an Olustee soldier
are from the pioneer, William Haddock Cone,
who settled with his parents in the Benton
community of this county around 1840.
Because members of this family distinguished
themselves in military and political affairs in the early
history of south Georgia and north Florida, the Cone
family has been extensively documented in numerous
historical accounts in newspapers and books. Indeed, one
commentator observed, "All the men have been noted for
good business capacity, sound legislative courage, and
never-failing loyalty to the country."
The ancestor of William Haddock Cone was the elder
William Cone, who was born in the Pee Dee area of
North Carolina in 1745. He married Keziah Barber about
1765. She was also from North Carolina and daughter
of William Barber, a Revolutionary War soldier. The
couple later moved to Georgia.
During the Revolutionary War, the elder William
Cone gathered a group of men and drove the Tories out
of Bulloch County, Georgia. For his service as major
of the 1st Battalion of the Militia of Richmond County,
Georgia, William Cone was given a special grant of lands
in Effingham County, Georgia. In 1785 and 1787, Major

CONE continued on 7A

to 50 kilowatts in a day
with average simlight,
said Joseph Pietrzek,
energy efficiency pro-
grams manager for
Progress Energy.
The energy generated
from the panels will save
the school about $2,000
a year on energy, said
Bobby Pickle, community
relations manager tor
Progress Energy. Energy
savings is an added bonus
of the panels, as the
main goal of the program
is demonstrating solar
power at work, he said.
On average Fort White
uses about $300,000
in electricity annually,
said Michael Millikin,
Columbia County School
District superintendent.
"It's a great oppor-
tunity to reach back to
the communities prog-
ress energy serves,"
Pickle said. So far
Progress has installed
about 20 panel systems
in Florida schools, he
said.
Since 2003 Fort White
has partnered with the
Ichetucknee Springs
State Park on educational
programs that promote
environmental science
and technology, Hatcher
said. The solar panels
and energy program are
another way to introduce
students to the environ-
mental awareness and
careers in the energy
industry, he said.
"The solar array will
be one of the elements
that will allow our

school for training stu-

in the renewable energy
industry," he said.
Students can use
data from the system
to gauge the amount of
energy produced and
compare it to other
schools' systems. The
data can be used in math
and for experiments.
"The job outlook in
this industry is excellent.
The energy industry in


Florida stands to lose 50
percent of its job force to
retirement within the next
five years," Hatcher said.
"The biggest thing is
that this is real," said
Wayne Oelfte, Fort
White energy acad-
emy teacher. Students
can experience energy
careers in a tangible way
with the solar panels,
instead of with a picture
or a model, he said.
In the energy acad-
emy, students learn
about the many.sources
of energy and jobs in the
energy ,industry, Oelfte
said. This is the first
year of the academy and
about 45 students are
enrolled. If they com-
plete the program, they
can leave high school
certified as a general
power technician, giv-
ing them a leg up in the
job market, he said. The.
energy industry has a
wide range of careers,
including welders, line-
men, pipefitters and
engineers.

War veterans who lost their lives'
during the Battle of Olustee will be
honored during a memorial service at
9 this morning at Oaklawn Cemetery,
at the north end of Irma Avenue. Dr.
Chuck Hall, Florida Gateway College
president, will serve as the keynote
speaker.
"I've been really excited they asked
me to be the keynote speaker and
-I'm looking forward to the meeting
on Friday (this), morning," he said.
"I think I've learned a lot just getting
ready for the presentation. So, it's
been a good experience so far."
This morning's event marks the
first time Hall has served as the key-
note speaker for the event.
Hall said it's been a real revela-
tion in preparing to be the event's
keynote speaker. He said Florida
Gateway College professor Dr. Sean
McMahon helped him with the nec-


essary research and he's gained
more insight about cemeteries and
graveyards.
"It's been a good chance for me to
find out what cemeteries and grave-
yards meant to the people back dur-
ing to the Civil War and what they
mean to us today," Hall said. "Ifs
been a real journey for me to find out
about this."
Hall said he thinks it's important to
hold an annual ceremony honoring
veterans who served in the Battle of
Olustee and the Civil War.
He said his address will chronicle
how at the end of the Civil War the
entire nation pulled together to do
something to serve those who died.
"The United States went in as a
group showed the rest of the world
that they knew how to take care of
and recognize the great sacrifice that
all of these people made in giving


their lives in the Civil War, no matter
which side they were on," Hall said.
Hall also noted that his speech will
include portions of letters written by
Civil War soldiers to their families.
"It all came down to how the sol-
diers looked at the war and were con-
cerned mostly about their families
and about the Lord protecting them,"
Hall said. "Several of the quotes I
have have to do with people being
in the midst of the war and knowing
they lived only because God stepped
forward. and protected them. It's
been a really interesting experience
to read about things that I wouldn't
have thought about. We all need rec-
ognize, even today, that these people
gave their lives for America. Even
with the result, the way it showed up,
everyone needs to step forward and
protect and recognize these people
for what they did."


STILL: Departure generates controversy
Continued From Page 1A


islators in December expressing their
support of Still's reappointment
"If they were so unhappy with him,
why did they sent the letter of support
to Tallahassee?" Long asked.
The water district board's chair-
man, Donald Quincey Jr., of Chiefland,
said the letter of support was sent to
Tallahassee weeks before Still told indi-
vidual board members that he planned
to resign. Quincey said Still made it
clear three weeks ago about his plans
to step down the from the job he had
held the past four years.
"He didn't say he was considering
resigning; he said he was resigning,"
Quincey said. "He thought it was time
for him to step aside. I had already
started making calls to let folks know
we'd be in a search for a new executive
director."
Quincey said Still apparently changed
his mind last week and told several
board members he wanted to remain
the district's executive director.
"He said he was getting positive
feedback that maybe he should stay,"
he said.
One of those supporters was board
member Carl Meece, who said he
urged Still to reconsider resigning.
"I told him it might not be in the best
interest of the district or you," Meece
said.
Meece said he was surprised at the
decision because Still had never faced


any criticism from board members
until Tuesday's meeting.
Quincey praised Still's job perfor-
mance as director, but said he voted
not to support him because of his
questionable commitment to the water
district
"I don't need somebody wavering in
that position," he said. "I need a guy
who's 100 percent in."
Meece disagreed with Quincey's
assessment of Still's dedication to the
water district
"There was no wavering to the com-
mitment to the district," he said. "He
was doing the job because he cared
about the district"
Quincey said he wasn't concerned
about the lack of continuity during the
transition to a new director because
the St Johns River Water Management
District recently appointed a new
executive director, The St Johns and
Suwannee water districts have been
at odds over the amount of water that
should be permitted for pumping from
the aquifer.
"St Johns has changed executive
directors in the middle of this and it's
working out," Quincey said. "This kind
of muted my concern."
Long said its too early to determine if
Hans Tanzler fIl was the right choice to
run the St Johns water district
"He's had six, eight weeks on the
job," she said. "Its a little early to tell."


Long said the new executive direc-
tor should have similar qualifications
as Still, who worked 18 years for the
district in a variety of management
positions including engineer, lobbyist
and attorney.
"What I fear is they will replace him
with an industry lobbyist," Long said.
"We need someone who understands
water. I don't know if a policy guy
would understand the needs of the
public."
But Meece predicted the district will
face "serious pain" before the debate
between the two water districts is
resolved.
"Ifs too bad we're not focused on
protecting our water," he said. 'We're
looking at some potentially serious
water issues. I think we're going to
take a hit"
Still, who is not answering media
requests for interviews, will remain in
the district until May 1. He issued a
statement, which is posted on the water
district's website.
"It has been a privilege to serve as
executive director of the Suwannee
district for the past four years," he said.
"Our district faces many challenges in
terms of protecting our water supply
and improving water quality, and we
have an outstanding, dedicated staff
who I'm confident will carry our pro-
grams forward to meet those chal-
lenges."

OPINION


Wars wind

down, but

no peace

dividend
I inevitably, some lawmaker
or activist group with
better political than math
skills will raise the shiny
but illusory prospect of a
"peace dividend." This would
be money we don't have to
spend to continue fighting the
wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
President Barack Obama's
new budget claims $846 billion
in "savings" from ending the
war in Iraq and beginning the
drawdown in Afghanistan, and
it proposes spending $230 bil-
lion of that on highways.
The phrase "peace dividend"
originated with President
George H.W. Bush and British
Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher and represented the,
actual savings from no longer
having to fund Cold War mili-
tary readiness.
The first president Bush
launched real military cuts that
continued under President Bill
Clinton and contributed greatly
to the balanced budgets on
which the country bnded the
century.
Then came the wars in Iraq
and Afghanistan. The tradition-
al means of fighting wars in this
country was to raise taxes to
pay for them. President George
W. Bush instead elected to cut
taxes. Moreover, he took the
cost of the wars out of the fed- '
eral budget. - -...'
At the end of fiscal year
2011' the cost'ofthose'Wars "
since 2001 passed the $1.3 tril-
lion mark. A Brown University
study estimates the ultimate
cost of those wars, including
what we've spent on Pakistan
and what we are spending
and will spend on veterans'
pensions and health care, will
range from $3.7 trillion to $4
trillion.
'!* Even now, there is pressure
m some quarters for the U.S.
to take military action against
Iran. Putting aside the highly
debatable wisdom of that propo-
tition, those who would take
)he U.S. into another war must
specify what taxes they will
raise and how high to pay for it
k There will be no peace divi-
lends in the mail, only bills -
and for years to come.

The blood-stained reign of


Bashar al-Assad


The bloody slaugh-
ter of civilians in
Syria was playing
in cable-news snip-
pets on television
sets throughout the White
House West Wing and State
Department on Tuesday, as the
man who expects to become
China's new leader this year
met with President Barack
Obama and Vice President Joe
Biden and was feted at a State
Department luncheon.
The horrific videos of Syrian
troops bombarding, and shell ,
ing the city of Horns sneaked
.out of Syria for the whole world
to see were a fitting reality
check for a quite complex U.S.
*visit by China's Vice President
Xi Jinping. After all, at the
United Nations, Xi's China had
just joined Russia in becoming
a partway enabler of what, was
happening in Syria.
China and Russia last week ,
had jointly vetoed a Security
Council resolution aimed at
ending the strife in Syria and
facilitating an end to the regime
of Syria's unlikely despot,
Bashar al-Assad. Secretary of
State Hillary Rodham Clinton
labeled that veto a "travesty."
Days later, she, Biden and Xi
were all clinking glasses in a
ritual of diplomatic toasting.
In Homs, Assad's fellow citi-


zens have for weeks lived not
unlike those ducks in carnival
shooting galleries. They, too,
are sitting ducks who seem-
ingly exist.only to be shot at,
in what has become the bloodi-
est uprising of the revolutions
known as the Arab Spring.
The United States, Europe
and the Arab League have,
pressed to end Assad's
regime. The U.S. and Europe
have clamped strong sanc-
tions on Syria, and the'
league has proposed sending
in an international peace-
keeping force. But Russia,
which has armed Syria's
troops, and China steadfastly
refused to go along. Russia
and China do not want the
West interfering in what they
call Syria's internal matters.
They do not want a repeat
of what transpired in Libya.
And, most of all, they do not
want anyone in the world to
think there is justification for


some future interference in
internal matters in their own
countries.
Obama and Biden both
said publicly they clearly.
detailed for Xi the U.S. posi-
tion on what the United
Nations must do to promote
peace and regime change in
Syria. But China's diplomats
have sent conflicting public
signals to the Arab League
and the West about what they
are really prepared to; do.
As recently as 1992, Assad
seemed to have his future well
charted. He was a soft-spoken
student ftom Damascus who
had arrived in London and
enrolled in a teaching hospital.
He chose to study ophthalmol-
ogy.
I Why? "Because it's very pre-
cise, it's almost never an emer-
gency, and there is very little
blood," Assad told an inter-
viewer who was writing a fawn-
ing 2011 article about his wife,
Asma, for Vogue magazine.
Today, this man who didn't
much care for blood is now
forever stained by the blood of
5,400 of his citizens the U.N.
estimate of Syrians killed since
March.

What's a name? Identication
What's in a name? Identification


L ast week, a
Mississippi state
legislator proposed
renaming the Gulf of
Mexico to the Gulf of
America.
In introducing the bill
Thursday to the state House
of Representatives' Marine
Resources Committee, Daniel
Steve Holland, a Democrat, said,
he wanted the body of water
identified in all official state deal-
ings by his proposed name.
Of course, the proposal is
intentionally anti-Mexican. It is a
textbook example of how public
officials stoke local cornpone
nativism. A no-name politician
capitalizes on knuckle-headed
prejudice and foments dissent
Fortunately, there is serious
brain science on if minds like
this are normal or psychopathic.
Really, I mean it
But the Mississippi name
change could have some other
consequences. For instance,
this is a good time to consider
whether to convert the Gulf of
California to the Gulf of Arizona.
That body of water borders the
Mexican states of Baja California
and Baja California Sur, not the
U.S. state. But if its name were
changed to Gulf of Arizona,
there's no mistaking what we
mean, even if Arizona does not
border it Arizona is closer to
that gulf than California is.


Jose De La Isla
joseisla3@yaohoo.com


There's precedent for different
names for the same geographic
thing. The river dividing the U.S.
and Mexico is known on the
north side as the Rio Grande and
on its south as RIo Bravo.
For reasons of full disclosure,
I have to admit a personal inter-
est in all this. Just as the name
"America" comes from an explor-
er and mapmaker, Amerigo
Vespucci, my surname comes
from an ancestor, Frenchman
Guillaume d'Isle (or alternately
Delisle), who made the first map
of my native Texas.
The "Carte de la Louisiane
et du course du Mississipi 1718"
was the first printed map using
technological methods new at
the time. Details show a variation
of the name for Texas on it, con-
tained in a reference to "Mission
de los Teijas etablie en 1716" in
East Texas. This is the map that
named Texas.
I alluded to Mr. Holland above
as a "no-name" politician. This


was not intended as an insult,
but to acknowledge that some
Americans might be wary of an
elected official with the name
"Holland." This could lead people
down at the diner to think for-
eigners are making our laws.
I propose that in official
documents we identify all elected
officials who share the name of
a foreign country as "Noname."
They can keep their Christian
names for civic life, but they are
not permitted to embarrass us
officially with their foreign-coun-
try names.
Just so there's no confu-
sion, if there's more than one
Noname, each can file for an
identity website on their state
government website, such as
www.Noname002.ms.gov, which
provides their civic AKA name.
Failure to register would require
forfeiture of the right to drive
and denial of all state benefits.
Nonames would be required to
provide proof of residency and
literacy to vote. They would be
considered "illegals" until such
time as they become legally reg-
istered. We are not against legal
nonames, just illegal ones.
Now that's what I call bridging
the gulf between Noname public
officials and we, the people.

tolling schemes with cut-rate
loans and grant programs. It's
time for Congress to pull the
plug on this double taxation of
America's highways.
N Washington Times


ANOTHER
VIEW


Tolling

America's

future

Congress turns its
attention this week
to the five-year,
$260 billion reau-
thorization of the
Department of Transportation.
Most of the attention has fallen
on the House version of the
legislation, which also would
green-light the Keystone XL
pipeline project and open up
the Arctic National Wildlife
Refuge. Democrats are steamed
that Republicans would try to
revive these job-creating deals.
As that controversy rages,
an equally important debate
on the future of America's
roads is slipping by under
the radar. Sen. Kay Bailey
Hutchison, Texas Republican,
intends to offer an amend-
ment to the Senate's version
of the transportation bill to
prohibit the imposition of tolls
on existing interstate freeway
lanes. Mrs. Hutchison's office
confirmed that her proposal
would not block Virginia Gov.
Bob McDonnell's plan to erect
toll booths on Interstate 95
between the North Carolina
border and Fredericksburg.
That's unfortunate.
The Obama administration
gave preliminary approval to
Mr. McDonnell's misguided
scheme in September, and' the
response has been predictable.
North Carolina saw its neigh-
bor shaking down drivers and
decided.itshould impose tolls
as well. The domino effect con-
tinues to South Carolina, where
the top transportation bureau-
crat said, "We are interested in
tolling and listen to what other
states are doing." The desire
is there, but the will is not
Politicians in the Palmetto State
realize the public isn't ready
to swallow tolls quite yet, so
they're shelving plans for now.
There's a reason tolls aren't
popular. Judging from the
toll rates on the way to New
York, vacationers looking to
escape the Beltway in favor of
a day of relaxation on Myrtle
Beach could wind up paying
$30 for the privilege. Though
it will be said this money will
pay for "improvements" to the
Interstate 95 corridor, motorists
already pay billions in the form
of big taxes on gasoline, tires,
licensing, registration and park-
ing, which is plenty to keep the
roads in top shape; The funding
only dries up when politicians
dip into highway accounts
so they can spread the cash
around on money-losing mass-
transit buses, trolleys and
trains.
Tolling adds the expense of
crony capitalism to the equa-
tion. Out of.that $30 toll, at
least $6.60 would go to pay
for an absurdly inefficient toll-
collection apparatus. Running a
toll road requires customer-ser-
vice agents, lawyers, market-
ing departments, enforcement
teams and expensive electronic
transponder and plate-reading
systems. Politicians don't mind
this inefficiency because it
affords them the luxury of out-
sourcing future toll hikes to a
private company, usually based
in a foreign country.
Toll roads can only exist
when there's no accountability.
That's why there has never
been a v9te in the Virginia
General Assembly authoriz-
ing the tolling of Interstate 95.
Instead, Mr. McDonnell and
his Democratic predecessor,
Tim Kaine, have ripped the Old
Dominion's roadways out from
under the people who paid for
them. The federal government
has been subsidizing these

College

panel

considers

new role

By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE The
new chairman of the Florida
Board of Governors told the
House Education Committee
on Thursday that his panel
may have delegated too
much authority to individual
universities' trustee boards.
Dean Colson, who became,
chairman last month, said
he's asked the board and its
staff to re-evaluate its role
under a state constitutional
amendment that created
the panel in 2002 to oversee
Florida's 11 public universi-
ties.
"I believe that in certain
situations our board must be
able to weigh in to provide the
leadership that the constitution
envisioned for us," Cols6n said.
"Most importantly the Board of
Governors needs to be engaged
when things go bad."
The latest bad thing
that's happened to the State
University System is the
hazing death of a Florida
A&M University band mem-
ber late last year while on a
football trip to Orlando.
The university's trust-
ees have taken the lead in
responding to the death
of drum major Robert
Champion, who was beaten
as part of the hazing. That
includes calling on a group
of outside experts to help
come up with solutions to
pervasive hazing at the
Tallahassee school.
"We must operate, regu-
late, control and be fully
responsible for the manage-
ment of the whole univer-
sity system," Colson told
lawmakers. "Recent events'
have also forced me to
acknowledge how we may
have delegated many of our
duties, my board's respon-
sibilities, to our boards *of
trustees."
The Board of Governors
is successor to the Board
of Regents. It was abolished
by the Legislature after the
regents bucked pet projects
sought by legislative leaders
including medical and law
schools.

Bill would give state


lawmakers immunity


By JAMES L. ROSICA
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE A bill now moving
through the Florida House would allow
state lawmakers to wrap themselves in
absolute immunity from having to testify
in lawsuits.
The House Judiciary Committee cleared
a bill (PCB JDC 12-03) along party lines
on Thursday that would give a "legislative
privilege" to all current and former law-
makers and their staff. If a staff member
wanted to cooperate, the lawmaker could
block the testimony.
The privilege includes not having to turn
over personal notes or other documents
produced in their legislative capacity. And
the immunity from disclosure extends even
after a lawmaker's death.
Democratic .critics complained bitterly
that the measure really was about protect-
ing Republican motives behind this year's
maps for once-a-decade political redistrict-
ing.
"Particularly the timing of this speaks
to what it's all about," said Rep. Richard
Steinberg, a Miami Beach Democrat, who
pointed out that a House redistricting law-
yer was attending the meeting. 'This has
everything to do about redistricting."
The Florida Democratic Party already
is challenging the Republican-controlled
Legislature's new congressional districts
as unconstitutional. Three groups that sup-
ported the Fair Districts anti-gerrymander-
ing amendments voters adopted in 2010


say they also plan to sue.
Rep. Matt Gaetz said the bill is in
response to threats of such lawsuits.
"What this bill does is ensure that litiga-
tion is not used as a tool or a bully tactic,"
the Shalimar Republican said. "Because a
specific interest group has a lot of money
and can afford litigation, they can drag
(lawmakers) into court, disrupt their life,
their service to constituents." Gaetz didn't
name specific groups.
The League of Women Voters of Florida,
one of the likely plaintiffs, points to the
Florida Constitution: "No apportionment
plan or individual district shall be drawn
with the intent to favor or disfavor a politi-
cal party or an incumbent"
"The Legislature's intent is very rel-
evant," said league president Deirdre
Macnab. "Yet the decision to move this
law forward would make the intent of
both current and prior legislators and
staff unavailable. If they had private
meetings where they directedthat maps
be drawn in violation of the criteria, the
courts and the public might never find
out."
Attorneys have tried dragging legisla-
tors into court for other cases recently.
Rep. Rick Kriseman, a St. Petersburg
Democrat, was subpoenaed to testify
in a suit involving online travel com-
panies who claimed he distributed
confidential information during a tax-
ing dispute last year. A judge only
agreed to narrow what he would be
questioned about.


Officials




call for




fraud fix


Auto insurance
cheating draws
spotlight.

By BRENT KALLESTAD
Associated Press
HAVANA, Fla, -
Florida state troopers
gave Gov. Rick Scott and
Chief Financial Officer
Jeff Atwater a firsthand
look Thursday at sev-
eral types of staged
automobile accidents
that have created a
fraudulent billion-dollar
industry at the expense
of drivers.
The experience rein-
forced both men's
desire to see lawmak-
ers come up. with ways
, to put a stop to the ram-
pant cheating before
the 2012 legislative ses-
sion finishes its busi-
ness March 9.
"This is, to me, a no-
brainer. Why wouldn't
we want to fix it and be
aggressive in fixing it?"
Scott said, noting that
he preferred the House
version of legislation
being debated.
Scott and the CFO
like the requirement
in the House bill that
calls for those hurt in a
wreck to go to a hospi-
tal emergency room or
hospital-owned walk-in
clinic within 72 hours for
personal-injury coverage
to kick in.
The Senate proposal
requires more detailed
police reports after a
wreck and places tighter
restrictions on pain clin-
ics.
Scott wants the
Legislature to toughen
the Personal Injury
Protection (PIP) legis-
lation created 40 years
ago and crack down on
schemers that he said


make it too expensive
for many to afford the
mandatory insurance.
"It's going to take
every citizen calling
their lawmakers and say,
'work for us, this is fraud
against us, work for us,
don't work for trial'lay-
ers, don't work for pro-
viders who are taking

tage of
the sys-
tem,"
he said.
"I hope
every-
body calls Scott
their law-
makers and says, 'look,
this is fraud, we want
this stopped.'"
The first-term
Republican governor
has crisscrossed Florida
in recent months calling
for changes to the state's
PIP law.
Atwater noted that
claims have jumped
dramatically in recent
years despite the num-
ber of accidents having
declined significantly.
The governor and
CFO watched a live
demonstration at a law
enforcement academy a
few miles north of the
Capitol.
Lawmakers passed
PIP coverage in 1972 to
make sure anyone hurt
in an automobile wreck
could seek timely medi-
cal treatment.
Thelegislationrequired
a driver's insurance com-
pany pay up to $10,000 to
cover medical bills and
lost wages after an acci-
dent no matter who's
at fault
Special agents from
the National Insurance
Crime Bureau and a
representative from the
Insurance Information
Institute also attended
the demonstration.

Columbia

wrestling

olumbia High
has four
wrestlers
representing
the school
at the state tournament,
which begins today at the
Lakeland Civic Center.
Cole Schreiber and
Monterance Allen have
had to go it alone at state
for the last two years.
This season, they are
joined by Joe Fields and
Isaac Henderson.
Four Tigers at state
are the most since the
2005-06 season when
Matt Bohannon, Greg
Poole, Lewis Sharp and
Brady Dicks qualified.
Florida wrestling's
first state-sanctioned
championships were in
1965. Columbia High
began its program in
1972 after joining the
Gateway Conference.
The conference required
that CHS offer more
sports and Art Holliday
was called on to start a
program for the Tigers.
It was ragtag at first
The program could not ,
afford singlets,.so the
wrestlers wore
basketball jerseys and
tennis shoes.
Holliday bought a book
on the fundamentals of
wrestling and he and the
team read it together to
learn the sport Leroy
Moon, one of the fathers,
wrestled in college and
offered assistance.
The Tigers were. not
proud. After losing a
match, CHS athletes
would solicit instructions
and tips from the
winning team. Forrest
High loaned Columbia its
third set of uniforms to
wear at matches.
The University of
Florida had a wrestling
team at the time and the
Gators took the Tigers
under their wing.
David Rogers won the
first match for CHS.
Columbia made a
pretty quick splash on
the state scene.
Amos Smith won the
state championship in
his weight class in 1975.
Smith beat Jeff Stanley of
South Miami, 4-3.
Smith's title remains
the only one for
Columbia, though Tigers
have come close a couple
of times.
Lugene Smith, brother
of Amos, was a state
runner-up in 1978,
losing 5-4 in overtime
to Michael Young of Ed
White.
Travis Gilbert was a
state runner-'up in 1996.
Gilbert lost a technical
fall to Moses McCraney
of Miami Killian. Gilbert
had placed fourth at state
in 1994.
Jeff Johns also had
a fourth-place finish in
1981. Dicks placed fifth
in 2006.
Schreiber placed sixth
last year and could join
Gilbert as Tigers who
earned team points in
two appearances or,
better, join Amos Smith
as a state champion.

Stewart to defend with new crew chief


By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press


DAYTONA BEACH -
Over the closing weeks of
lastseason, SteveAddington
had been led to believe he
would be Tony Stewart's
crew chief in 2012.
Then Stewart won at
Martinsville and again at
Texas to give him four
wins in eight races. The
Sprint Cup championship
was firmly in his reach,
and it sure didn't seem like
there were any reasons for
Stewart to make changes to
his organization.
Addington, laid back by
nature, watched and waited.
But when Stewart capped
off his remarkable title run
by winning the season-finale
at Homestead to snatch the
championship away from
Carl Edwards, Addington
finally got nervous.
A text message from
Stewart calmed him a bit.
"I'm laying in the bed ...
sitting there thinking,
'What's this guy thinking?
They just won a champi-
onship. Are they going
to change their minds?'"
Addington recalled.
"Couldn't sleep and then
the phone blew up I got
the text of, 'No pressure,
bud.'"
And so the plan was
set in place: Addington
announced he was leav-
ing Penske Racing after
a tumultuous tenure .with
Kurt Busch and moving
to Stewart-Haas Racing to
crew chief the defending
NASCAR champion.


-l/


Tony Stewart celebrates after winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship in Homeste


Darian Grubb, despite
guiding Stewart to five wins
in the final 10 races of the
season, was out of a job, and
fans couldn't understand
why Stewart would make
such wholesale changes.
Stewart also successfully
recruited Greg Zipadelli,
his former longtime
crew chief at Joe Gibbs
Racing, to leave that team
and join SHR as competi-


tion director.
Now, as the defending
champion heads this week
to Daytona International
Speedway for the start of
the 2012 season, he's got
to prove he didn't make
a mistake in overhauling
his organization. In true
Stewart form, though, he's
scoffing at the notion he's
under any pressure.
"You're asking the wrong


guy," he said before motion-
ing toward Addington, '"You
need to ask him. I feel just
fine."
Then Stewart contin-
ued, explaining he's known
Addington for years both
wefe at Joe Gibbs Racing
together and their
personalities fit.
"We're just low key,
down-to-earth racers and
hardcore racers that want

Dave Despain, host of SPEED TVs "Wind Tunnel." (NASCAR photo)

Veteran broadcaster reflects on four decades of race coverage


O ver the course of his long
career as a motorsports
journalist and especially
during the past 10 years as host
of SPEED TVs "Wind Tdnnel"
talk show Dave Despain has
built a reputation as an authority
on all forms of motorsports.
NASCAR racing is one of the focal
points of "Wind Tunnel," but the
show also covers the gamut of rac-
ing, from dirt Late Models to
motorcycles to drag racing, and
Despain comes across as very
knowledgeable no matter which
side of the sport is being dis-
cussed. That reputation is some-
thing that Despain, now 65, looks
upon with mixed emotions.
"It's difficult to perceive your-
self as any kind of elder states-
man because you still want to be
that kid on the way up, that hot
young prospect that still has his
best days ahead of him," Despain
said in a recent phone interview
from his home near Jefferson, Ga.
"That being said, I don't regret
any of the experiences that have
gotten me to the point of being an
elder statesman, if in fact I have
somehow qualified for that lofty
description."
Despain's rise to the position
he's reached in the sport began at
one of auto racing's most historic
tracks, and one not far from his
current home. It was at Atlanta's
now-defunct Lakewood Speedway
back in 1971 that Despain got his
biggest career break.
After working at a local radio
station near his hometown of
Fairfield, Iowa, and trying to
make it as a dirt racer, he'd come
to Lakewood to cover an
American Motorcycle Association
event and to do a prototype of a
radio show he thought would be a
hit. His timing was perfect, as the
president of the AMA was at the
track, heard of his project and
was impressed.
"He learned that my heart real-


ly was in that form of racing,
which was his favorite, and he
pulled necessary strings to get me
the job," Despain said.
His next break came in 1975
when he was at Daytona
International Speedway for the
Daytona 200 motorcycle race
when ABC's "Wide World of
Sports" producers showed up at
the last minute and bought the
broadcast rights to the race. The
broadcast crew needed an expert
analyst, and Despain got the call.
S"They gave me a shot," Despain .
said. "My very first television
show was.the 1975 Daytona,.00, .,
Keith Jackson was the anchor


Dave Despain (SPEED TV photo)

with me standing alongside in my
long hair and my borrowed yellow
Century 21-looking blazer, which
was the costume at that time.
"That led me into a TV career."
His knack for being in the right
place at the right time also led to
good fortune away from work. He
was working in Atlanta, doing
"Motorweek Illustrated" when he
met a Delta Air Lines flight atten-
dant, who eventually became
Wendy Despain. Their second date
was a race that Despain was cov-
ering at Atlanta Motor Speedway
"She'd never been to a big-time
race before," Despain said. "My


broadcast position was outside
Turn Three, about six to eight feet
above the wall and four or five
feet back.
"At the end of 500 miles, we
were both pretty well covered
with Goodyear rubber dust.
I figured if she could tolerate
that, she could tolerate vie."
Today, Despain does most of his
work from a studio in Charlotte,
N.C., but he sometimes goes on
assignment, and his SPEED boss-
es have been cooperative in allow-
ing him time off in the summer-
time to knock a few motorcycle
journeys off his bucket list.
But most weeks find him on
the job, working hard to be sure
he's as prepared as can be for
"Wind Tunnel."
"I read and watch a lot of rac-
ing on TV," he said. "I try to stay
as current as I can, given the
plethora of information out there
now, which is probably the biggest
change Ive seen in the time I've
been covering racing. When I
started, you had to call the press .
box to see who won."
But he said the vast amount of
information available through
just a few keystrokes on a com-
puter has its downside.
"It can tend to make those of us
who cover the sport lazy and
assume if it's not on TV, or if the
series or track doesn't have a good
Internet site, ifs not worth cover-
ing," he said. "A lot of times, that
local racing that is not very
sophisticated is some of the best
racing out there."
Like other interviewers in the
sport, Despain finds drag racer
John Force a good interview sub-
ject, entertaining and informative,
even if it's hard to get in a word
edgewise once Force gets going.
"You only need one question per
segment," he said. "In. fact, that's
all you get. To get the big picture,
you have to steer a middle path
through all the tangents he goes


off on."
On the other hand, interview-
ing NASCAR's reigning Cup
champion Tony Stewart, requires
some effort.
Tm on record as saying Tony
Stewart is one of the toughest
interviews, but that's not a knock
on Tony in any way," he said. "To
the contrary, it's a compliment.
Tony just doesn't suffer fools glad-
ly. You'd better come with good
questions or he's going to let you
know that you haven't. That puts
a lot of pressure on you to do your
half well, which I like and appre-
ciate."
Despain also gets pleasure from
interviewing young drivers on the
way up, career-wise, even if he
has to work to coax answers out
of them.
'They may not be particularly
sophisticated, may not have done
a lot of interviews before, may not
be smooth and polished," he said.
"But to me that's half the fun, see-
ing the diamond in the rough and
maybe contributing in some way
to them being better at that end
of the business.
"And I just like the raw honesty
instead of the polished PR speak."
Then, he said, there are those
like Roger Penske, who doesn't
hide his car owner bias, but also
gives a good look at the big pic-.
ture of racing, and others, like Jeff
Gordon, who are predictable, but
in a good way.
"You know [Gordon] is going to
show up with his game face on,
and you know he's going to be
very professional and give you
good answers," Despain said. "He's
going to put an effort into it, not
just show up and rattle off a list
of his sponsors."
But no matter who show up on
the set or calls in on the phone,
Despain never seems to tire of
talking to them.
"It's not the most difficult gig,"
he said. "ive had real jobs before."


Kahne: 2013 cars 'drove great'
The recent on-track testing of the 2013 Sprint
Cup cars at Homestead-Miami Speedway was
carefully kept under wraps, with no media
allowed anywhere on site.
Kasey Kahne's comments on a NASCAR tele-
conference did offer a glimpse into what went on
at the test, which was believed to be the first
time all four participating manufacturers had
their cars on track together.
Most manufacturer representatives say they
want their 2013 NASCAR car to better represent
passenger cars, but only Ford has unveiled its
new car.
Kahne said he believes Chevy fans and
other Chevrolet race drivers will like the one
he drove at Homestead.
"You can tell they've put a lot into it because
the car drove great," he said. "It looks really good.
I think all the cars looked really good that were
there, and it drove great right off the start, first
time on the track.
"I think it's going to be a really exciting change
for everybody involved, and especially the fans. I
think they're going to be able to see a little more
of... what they've looked for in the past, being
able to see the manufacturer of each car and how
they look different and aren't the exact same."

DUI arrest costs driver contract
Former Nationwide Series driver John Wes
Townley, who had planned a comeback thfs
year in the Camping World Truck Series, has
been released from his race team after being
arrested for drunk-driving near his home near
Athens, Ga.
"Obviously, this is an unfortunate situation,"
Robby Benton, owner of RAB Racing with
Brack Maggard, said
in a statement.
"However, we have to
react to the severity of
the incident according-
ly. His actions do not
reflect those of RAB
Racing, nor the spon-
sors associated with
the team.
"John Wes has
accepted full responsi-
bility, and will take the
necessary personal KUli l
steps in order to cor-sJon Wfs Townloy in 2010
rect his actions, among (NASCAR photo)ley in 2010
other internal sanc- (NASCAR photo)
tions." i
The arrest, which came after he crashed his
2011 BMW into a power pole, isn't Townley's
first alcohol-related incident. In 2010, he was
cited for underage possession of alcohol while in
Las Vegas for a Nationwide Series race.

Stewart hot at 'Winter Freeze'
Reigning Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart
tuned up for Speedweeks with a feature win in
the All Star Circuit of Champions sprint car
race at Screven Motor Speedway near Sylvania,
Ga., on Saturday night. Stewart's win in the
"Winter Freeze" came in a race that lived up to
its name, as temperatures were below freezing
at race time.


After years of upheaval, Kahne settles into stable race home at Hendrick


If there's one thing that has been missing from
Kasey Kahne's NASCAR career, it's stability
He started out in 2002, in the series now known
as Nationwide, driving a Ford for Yates Racing. The
next year he moved to the Brad Akins Ford team,
and a year later he was racing in Sprint Cup, driv-
ing the No. 9 Dodge for car owner Ray Evernham.
He appeared headed for a stretch of stability,
but in 2007 Evernham sold controlling interest in
the team to the Gillette family, and then in 2009-
the team merged with Petty Enterprises and
became Richard Petty Motorsports.
During the '09 season, Kahne signed a contract
with Hendrick Motorsports to take over the No. 5
Chevrolet then driven by Mark Martin, but spent
last year farmed out to Red Bull Racing, as Martin
was still under contract to drive the No. 5.
Now Kahne and his longtime crew chief Kenny
Francis are officially under the roof at the
Hendrick Motorsports complex, as they head to
Daytona International Speedway this week to
crank up for the 2012 season.
"Probably the Daytona test [in January] was the
first time I started to feel like kind of part of the
team, and it's been really good," Kahne said on last
week's NASCAR teleconference. "It's been every-
thing that I expected up to this point. I still am
pretty fresh with the whole deal, so I think it only
gets better from here."
Kahne said Francis seems to be happy in his
new surroundings as well.
"He's fitting in great over there," said Kahne,
who had outpatient knee surgery last week but is
expected to compete as scheduled at Daytona, "It's
been a lot on his plate trying to figure it out and
figure out how things are run there and how thei

he's working on."
At Hendrick, Kahne's No. 5 team is paired with
the No. 24 of Jeff Gordon. They operate out of a
shop that sits alongside a similar facility housing
the No. 48 of Jimmie Johnson and the No. 88 of
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Kahne said he likes being paired with the veter-
an Gordon.
"It's been fun to kind of talk with Jeff and try to
pick his brain a little bit on certain things," Kahne
said.-'Tve looked at things differently ... so some of
the ways that I look at stuff will be different from
Jeff and Ill give him a different way to look at
stuff every once in a while, too.
"He's been in one spot for so long. He's so used
to trying to do things certain ways, but he's been
very successful, so I feel like working with him is a
pretty great opportunity for myself; and it's been a
lot of fun so far doing that and just pretty cool to
be a part of that."
From an overall standpoint, Kahne said the best
part about being at Hendrick is having the stabili-
ty that has been missing for much of his Cup
career.
"Stability, that's a great word, good word to
hear," he said. "I have four years [at Hendrick] that
I know it's going to be stable and be competitive

DEAR ABBY


Dad's sudden death reveals

the life that he secretly led


DEAR ABBY: My father
died suddenly a year
ago. My sister went to
his house and discovered
something that deeply
disturbed her. Dad was
secretly gay. There were
lots of materials in his
home that I'm sure he
never intended for us to
find. Personally, I find his
interests fascinating, but
my sister was unhinged
by it. After all, she was
the one who made the
discovery.
Now she's obsessed
with finding out if Dad
was having relations with
men while Mom was
alive, and if he did, did
Mom know about it. I
have tried telling her that
there were probably lots
of things that happened
between our parents that
are none of our business,
but my sister can't let it
go. She also seems upset
that my reaction isn't the
same as hers. I'm glad
Dad was fulfilling his.
needs, especially in old
age.
My sister was always
"Daddy's girl." Any sug-
gestionls on how I can
help her? -- DAD'S SON
IN MIAMI
DEAR SON: I'm not
sure you can. But a
trained therapist might
be able to. Your sister's
discovery was a shock
because "Daddy's girl"
now realizes she didn't


Abigail Van Buren
www.deorabby.com
know her father as well
as she thought she did.
She's reacting almost
as if she, as well as her
mother, may have been
cheated on.
It is almost impossible
to determine who knew
what and when, if both
the individuals are dead.
I hope, with time, your
sister will be able to
focus on the good times
she had with her father
and her obsession will
lessen.

DEAR ABBY: I have a
co-worker, "Amber" who
has always been large.
She has looked like she
was pregnant the entire
two years I have known
her. She can also be a liar
and an attention-seeker.
I am pregnant for real.
Soon after Amber found
out, she began telling
our co-workers that she,
too, is pregnant -- with
twins.
She has said this
before, and then she
faked a miscarriage. She
is now bringing ultra-


sound pictures to work
that I discovered she
had downloaded from
Google Images.
Everyone knows
Amber is lying, but
she keeps it going like
she believes it herself.
Abby, should I try to
save her the embarrass-
ment and tell her that
everyone knows she's
faking? Or should I just
sit back and see where
the lying gets her? -
REALLY EXPECTING IN
CHICAGO
DEAR REALLY
EXPECTING: Your co-
worker appears to be
mentally disturbed.
This is something that
should be discussed with
Amber's supervisor, so
