If you are like most Americans, some-
where in a neglected corner of your home
you have a collection of plastic bags that
won't stop growing. Teresa Wooley, 51, Lake
City resident since 2007, has repurposed
this copious commodity by using plastic
bags, as well as other recycled materials, to
create purses, hats, shoes and other useful
creations.
Wooley learned to crochet when she was
19 years old. She claims that her mother
hired a teacher to instruct her in crocheting
"to keep her out of trouble." But it was not
until aboutl5 years ago, when she ran out of
yarn in the middle of a project, that Wooley
was struck with the idea to use plastic.
Fastforward to 2012 and Wodley has cre-
ated a collection of products made from
recycled materials that she sells online and
at craft shows. This is in addition to having
a family, a full-time job as a senior analyst
for AT&T and being enrolled as a student of
Computer Programming at Florida Gateway
College.
Her process is fairly simple, but time
intensive. She cuts bags into strips and then
crochets or knits the material into a variety
of different patterns, many of which she
designed herself.
To transform the bags even further,
Wooley uses a method she calls plastic
fusion. She stacks several plastic bags on
top of one another and sandwiches them
between wax paper. She then uses an iron,
on low heat, to melt the plastic together cre-
ating a thick sheet that she will later use to
line the insides of her purses.
"You don't have your local yarn shop,"
said Wooley. "You don't have a Jo-Ann's or a
Michael's where you can go in and you can

Romney, Santorum battling
it out in tight race as
Tuesday's primary looms.

By KASIE HUNT and THOMAS BEAUMONT
Associated Prbss
FLINT, Mich. Republican Mitt Romney
fought Saturday to prove he is the strongest
challenger to President Barack Obama, an
increasingly difficult task given the tight
race in his native state of Michigan against
surging conservative Rick Santorum.
In the finalweekend of campaigning before
Tuesday's Michigan and Arizona primaries,
Romney focused on central and southeast
Michigan's urban and industrial centers in
hopes of pulling ahead of Santorum.
With a Michigan victory, Santorum could
solidify his place as a real threat to Romney
heading into Super Tuesday, the 10-state
sweepstakes on March. Santorum's victo-
ries so far have come in lower-turnout party
caucuses.

Mountaintop Ministries Worldwide, a
Lake City church long viewed with skepti-
cism by some in the community, broke its
decades-long silence this week.,
Church leaders opened their worship
center, on County Road 240, to reporters
for what leaders believe is the ever first
press conference.
Senior pastor James Burbach said there
have been many questions surrounding
the church. Now leaders want the public
to know the whole story, he said.
Burbach's grandfather, Charles Meade,
founded the church, formally known
as End Time Ministries and Meade
Ministries.
About 1,700 people attend the nonde-
nominational Christian church regularly,
officials said. Over the past 10 years there
have been about 400 new members.

Sheriff: Woman killed sons, self in St. Augustine


ST. AUGUSTINE -
Authorities say a northeast
Florida woman shot and
killed her two sons and
then turned the gun on
herself. "
The Times-Union
reports that 40-year-old
Donna Gayle McCulloch
and her sons 8-year-
old Daniel Joel Rashley
and 7-year-old William
Benjamin Rashley were
found dead in their sub-
urban St Johns County
home by McCulloch's fam-
ily on Thursday.
On Friday, Sheriff David
Shoar said McCulloch suf-
fered from years of spou-
sal abuse and the horrors
of a single-car crash that
left her paralyzed from the
waist down.
Officials say McCulloch
did not leave a suicide
note. People who knew'
McCulloch said she was
a doting mother who had
endured a contentious ..
divorce and was injured in
a bad car crash.

House panel OKs
$2.4M murder claim
TALLAHASSEE The
parents of a murdered
police informant would be
compensated by the city
of Tallahassee under a bill
filed Friday by a House
committee, but a Senate
special master has recdm-
mended against authoriz-
ing the $2.4 million pay-
ment
The Senate Rules
Committee will consider
that chamber's bill (SB 44)


on Monday.
Rachel Hoffman, a
23-year-old recent Florida
State University gradu-
ate, was shot five times in
2008 when a Tallahassee
drug sting went bad.
Tallahassee police used
the Safety'Harbor woman
as an undercover infor-
mant after catching her
with marijuana and pills
without having a prescrip-
tion for them.
Hoffman's parents,
Irving Hoffman and
Marjorie Weiss, sued
Tallahassee,.which agreed
to a $2.6 million settlement
as the case was about
to go to trial last month.
The city, though, 'could '
pay only $200,000 under
Florida law without pas-
sage of a claims bill by the
Legislature. ,
"The city has set aside
the money," Lance Block,
a lawyer for. the parents,
told the House judiciary
Committee. "They're ready
to pay this claim. This has
been a very painful ordeal
for this community as well
as, of course, the Hoffman
family."
Police gave Hoffman
$13,000 in marked bills
to buy a drug known as
Ecstasy, cocaine and a gun
from two men. Officers
lost visual and electronic
contact with Hoffman
when the suspects called
her on her cell phone and
changed their meeting
location from a park to
an isolated area north of
Tallahassee. That's where
she was robbed and shot.


Her body was dumped
about 50 miles away
near Perry, southeast of
Tallahassee.
Senate Special Master
John G. Van Landingham
concluded Hoffman had
only herself to blame
because she could have
"stopped and sped away"
at various times before
meeting the suspects
although he acknowledged
police could have foreseen
what eventually happened.
"But just because the
planned operation posed
foreseeable risks does
"iot mean that the police'
should reasonably have
'foreseen every conceiv-
able risk, no matter how
remote or unlikely," Van:
Landingham,wrote.

FBI searches for serial
bank robbery suspect
MIAMI The-FBI
'is searching for a man
believed responsible for up
to eight bank robberies in

Hollywood, Davie, Fort
Lauderdale and Pompano
Beach. The FBI did not

Key West
Coast Guard offi-
cials say the group was
taken Friday to Bahia de
Cabanas, Cuba. They were

MIAMI An Arizona \
woman has been convicted

tic tank products.

said Friday a jury con-
victed 50-year-old Cheryl

ers marketed a product
called Septic Remedy they
claimed would make septic

sary. The product was
marketed nationwide,
often to -elderly customers

enough to last 70 years.
The group also falsely
claimed that federal agen-
cies were affiliated with or
approved the septic tank
product They also had
a so-called "idiot list" of
people easily persuaded to
keep buying the product.
Four others have plead-
ed guilty in the scheme.

Couple convicted in

JACKSONVILLE A
Jacksonville couple has
been convicted in the

Gerrard. Tried separately,
Jovita Ibeagwa was found
guilty as charged, while
Markanthony Ibeagwa was

neglect charges. The couple
will be sentenced in April.
The Florida Times-Union
reports that Jovita Ibeagwa

dren home alone to go to

would be home in 10 min-
utes. Markanthony Ibeagwa
initially told police he got
stuck in traffic but later
confessed that he stayed at
work several more hours.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS


Crystal to save Academy Awards


LOS ANGELES The Oscar cer-
emony has much to prove Sunday,
including whether a blockbuster-free
field can draw a TV audience and if
Billy Crystal's host routine remains a
crowd-pleaser.
Brian Grazer and Don Mischer,
the show's producers, are laughing
off the challenges: "Comedy is the
direction we're going in this year,"
said Mischer.
For Crystal, who returns to the
ceremony (8:30 p.m., ABC) after an
absence of eight years, that means
jokes and patter that were being
rehearsed at the last minute to avoid
punch line leaks.
The actor also is bringing back
two of his trademark
Oscar bits: A film
sequence in which
he appears via CGI
in clips from the nine
best-picture contend-
ers, and a musical
number that pays
tribute to the cere- Crystal
mony and nominees.
"It's everything
everybody is going to want to see
from Billy Crystal," Grazer said.,
"Billy was born for this job. He loves
being the host and he does it with
complete zest and enthusiasm. He
makes it fun for everybody."
Crystal has help. Presenting team
Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis
have a "great gag," Grazer promised,
with more light moments planned
courtesy of co-presenters Tina Fey
and Bradley Cooper and, in a group
effort, the cast of "Bridesmaids."
There's a chance for controversy
in a presidential election year and,
with Sacha Baron Cohen invited, for
mock political friction. Rumor has
it Cohen will come dressed as the
character from "The Dictator," his
upcoming movie about a faux coun-
try's desppt.
Although there were hints of
motion picture .academy uneasiness
about the possible stunt, "we're
thrilled to have him," Grazer said.
Among the high-wattage present-
ers for the 84th Academy Awards at

preparations for the 84th Academy Awards continued for Sunday nIight's show in
Los Angeles..


are Halle Berry, Tom Cruise,
Natalie Portman, Michael Douglas,
Penelope Cruz and Angelina Jolie..
They'll be framed by a stage set
evoking a classic movie theater and,
the evening's theme: the enduring
nature of the moviegoing experi-
ence.
Nominees in the lead acting cat- "
egories include Viola Davis for "The
Help," Meryl Streep for "The Iron
Lady," George Clooney for "The
Descendants" and Jean Dujardin for
'The Artist"
But the night's starring role goes
to Crystal, 63, who acknowledged in
a Oscar.com video that "there's so
much expected" of his return. He
should have the audience's goodwill
in his ninth Oscar gig since, in the
best Hollywood tradition, he came
to the rescue after Eddie Murphy
dropped out as host.
Murphy's exit followed that of cer-
emony producer Brett Ratner, who
had drawn fire for using a pejorative
word for gay men at a screening of
'Tower Heist," directed by Ratner
and starring Murphy. Oscar-winning
movie producer Grazer ("A Beautiful
Mind") jumped in to work with


awards veteran Mischer.
Last year's co-hosts aren't a
hard act for Crystal to follow. Anne
Hathaway and James Franco were
picked to appeal to younger viewers
but while Hathaway was game, an .
inert Franco 'proved ill-suited for the
task .
The nominees represent a differ-
ent challenge for the show. Favorites
include "The Artist," a daring black-
and-white silent film; "Hugo," an
unusual Martin Scorsese work that
trades grittiness for charm; and the
family drama 'The Descendants"
with Clooney as a cuckold.
None has soared at the box office.
Among the best-picture nominees,
only "The Help," based on the best-
selling book about 1960s race rela-
tions in the South, hit $100 million
in ticket sales and counting (it's at
more than $170 million.)
Blockbusters were left in the
cold. "Harry Potter and the Deathly
Hallows: Part 2," couldn't overcome
the academy's resistance to the
franchise. Nor, more understand-
ably, could "The Hangover Part II,"
another 2011 success.

Teresa Wooley, 51, showcases a Santa Claus-themed tote bag, handmade from recycled
plastic bags and plastic container lids.


RECYCLE: Lake City resident enjoys it

can buy your t-shirt yarn or rag yarn or
plastic bag yarn. You don't have that, so
you have to make it. That's what's most
time consuming. Once I have it made up,
I am good to go. I can whip it up."
As an added benefit, material costs are
very low.
However, Wooley's resourcefulness
does not stop with plastic bags. She uses a
huge range of recycled materials, much of
which come from products that have lost
their usefulness, such as CDs, VHS tape,
old clothes, soda cans and plastic bottles.
Wooley pulled out a small sidebound
notebook with a cover made from a melt-
ed down Moe's cup.
"You would see this plastic cup and typi-
cally you would throw it away," she said.
"I will take it home because it's plastic,
so I know that something can be made
from it."
Wooley believes that her creations, while
versatile and durable, carry much more
than a utilitarian purpose. She believes
they carry an important message.
"By repurposing it we are one step away


from keeping it out of the landfill," said
Wooley, "and a lot of what's in the landfill
is what's getting to our land friends, our
marine friends, even those in the sky."
According to the Environmental
Protection Agency, the United States pro-
duced around 31 million tons of plastic
waste in 2010. That same year, only 8
percent of plastic waste generated was
recovered for recycling which included
only 12 percent of plastic bags, sacks and
wraps.
"There is no way of stopping it, but I
think we have a way that we can better,
control it and through creative means,"
said Wooley.
Wooley plans to take her projects fur-
ther, educating whoever will listen and to
keep using whatever materials she can
find.
"Because even when they ban plastic
bags there is still so much out there that
you can create with: pantyhose, rag yarn,
sheets, pillow cases, curtains, blue jeans,"
she said. '"There is still so much out there
that can be recycled."'


WWII vet says no one helped


By JEFF KAROUB
Associated Press
DETROIT- A World War II veteran said
nobody helped him in the minutes after he
was attacked and carjacked during daylight
at a busy Detroit gas station and he had to
crawl across a concrete parking lot to get
help.
A roughly four-minute surveillance video
shows 86-year-old Aaron Brantley strug-
gling to get from the fuel pump to the gas
station's door as people walked and drove
by him Wednesday morning. The video
was first obtained by the Detroit Free
Press.
Brantley told The Associated Press


said several people passed by him as he
crawled, unable to walk because his leg
was broken in the attack. The carjacker
knocked Brantley down, took his keys and
drove off in his car about 10:40 a.m.
"I was trying to go in ... and see if
somebody could call the police and an
ambulance because I couldn't stand. I had
to crawl I tried two or three times to
get up," Brantley said Saturday. He said he
was on way home from Bible study when
he stopped to put gas in his 2010 Chrysler
200, which he recently bought to replace
another car that had been stolen.
"People were passing me just like I
wasn't there. ... I was crawling and they just
walk by me like I'm not there," he said.

Thirty-one girls, all sixth
through eighth gradders
from Lake City Middle
School, Richardson Middle
School, Fort White Middle
School. and Epiphany
Catholic School, partici-
pated.
"We're trying to motivate
these girls and build them
up to have a successful
future," Rogers said. "We
think they're at a prime age
where the girls are trying to
determine what they'll do.
They're not quite in high
school yet, but they're old
enough' to know to start
preparing for their future."
Participants seemed to
be as enthusiastic about the
event as its organizers.
"I really love it here. It's
really fun here," said Kati
Roxby, a 14-year-old. "It's
a way for people to just be
themselves and be with
other people their age."
"I'm having a blast,"
added Brittany Costito,
another participant. ,'This is
my third year and I've had
fun every single time I come
here. It's a way to socialize
and meet new people."
Marilyn Rossborough, an
Altrusa member and chair
of the dish garden project,


said for the past five or six
years Maureen Lloyd has
donated the money to ,pur-
chase supplies to make the
dish gardens.
"She donated that
money this year in mem-
ory of Earline Parker,"


Rossborough said.' "A lot
people knew Parker as
someone who was. very
altruistic in giving back to
the community. She passed
away recently and Maureen
wanted her to be remem-
bered,"


MICHIGAN: Race is tight

Continued From Page 1A


While Romney kept most of
hisattentionontheDemocratic
incumbent, he also worked
to lay doubt about the core
principles of his lightly funded
main GOP rival.
Romney is the one facing
stubborn doubts from some
conservatives for his changed
positions on social issues, but
he, tried to portray Santorum,
a former Pennsylvania sena-
tor, as a Washington insider
with cracks in his own conser-
vative credentials. Santorum
called such criticism '"laugh-
able" and said Michigan,
where Romney was born and
raised and his father was gov-
ernor, was winnable.
A crowd in Lansing heard
Romney accuse Santorum
of caving to party lead-
ers on issues he opposed,
including financing Planned
Parenthood.
'This is not time for lifelong
pols who explain why they
voted for this or that based
on what they were asked to
do by their fellow colleagues,"
Romney told about 300 activ-
ists gathered for breakfast at
a country club. "I will be a
president of principle."
Later in Flint, he declared
himself a Washington,
D.C., outsider and implied


Santorum,
Pennsylvania


a former
senator, is an


insider "I don't have any polit-
ical payoffs I have to make."
Romney tried to under-
mine Santorum's profile as an
abortion opponent by noting
Santorum's backing in 1996
of fellow Pennsylvanian Arlen
Specter in the GOP presi-
dential race. "He supported
the pro-choice candidate,"
Romney told more than 2,000
at a forum in Troy put on by
a tea party umbrella group.
Santorum spoke to the group,
Americans for Prosperity, ear-
lier Saturday.
Santorum, who has por-
trayed himself as a loyal
conservative and is popular
among evangelical conser-
vatives, ridiculed Romney's
claims.

OPINION


Helping the

long-term

jobless


always had one par-
ticularly frustrating
conundrum: Young
would-be workers
say that employers won't hire
them because they lack experi-
ence, but without that job they
can't get experience.
Now older workers are
encountering a similar frus-
tration: Unemployed workers
desperately want jobs, but
employers won't hire them
because they are unemployed.
The rule has always been
that it's easier to get a job if
you already have one, and
that seems truer than ever
now. But three years of lay-
offs, plant-closings, downsiz-
ings and high unemployment
means that there are many
workers who don't have that
advantage and, moreover,
have been out of work for a
long time.
And the cruel fact seems to
be that the longer workers are
out of a job the more reluctant
employers are to hire them.
Since 2009, more than 40
percent of unemployed work-
ers have been out of work six
months or longer.
The Wall Street Journal
reports that some companies
explicitly advertise that they
won't hire someone who isn't
employed. As a result, accord-
ing to the Journal, more than
a dozen states are considering
making it illegal to discrimi-
nate against the unemployed.
An unsuccessful job candidate.
who thought he had been
bypassed on those grounds
could sue under a law similar
to those that ban discrimina-
tion based on race, religion,
gender or national origin.
Surely America's employers
are sharp enough to discern
the difference between a will-.
ing worker who has been a
victim of bad times and some-
one who is unenthusiastically
going through the motions
simply to keep qualifying for
unemployment benefits.
Hiring someone who has
been looking hard for a long
time but to no avail will get
the employer an invaluable
but intangible benefit grati-
tude.

Conservative support for Santorum


will grow despite attacks


N ew Gallup polling
shows the clear-
est picture yet of
the great divide
in the Republican
Party that has been pushing
former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick
Santorum to the head of the
class.
Behind Santorum's eight-
point national lead over for-
mer Massachusetts Gov. Mitt'
Romney is a yawning gap in'.
ideological support for the two
candidates.
Conservative support for
Santorum stands at 42 percent,
compared to 24 percent for
Romney. Among those who
attend church frequently, sup-
port for Santorum is at 44
percent and for Romney 22
percent.
In the nation's heartland
in the Midwest .and South,
Santorum leads by 19 and 8
points, respectively. It is only
on the more liberal East and
West .coasts where the two are
running neck and neck.
The poll also challenges con-
ventional wisdom that Santorum
is too conservative for the tastes
of independent voters. He is lead-
ing Romney among Republican-
leaning independents by 8 points.'
With Santorum establishing
himself as the candidate of choice
among conservative and church-
going Republicans, Romney's
tactic, manifest in the debate in
Arizona, is to try and discredit
Santorum's credentials.
Having served two full terms
in the U.S. Senate, Santorum
cast enough party-line votes to
expose him to the attacks he got
in Arizona as being a business-as-
usual party politician.
I don't believe this approach
will dissuade those generally
attracted to Santorum's tradition-

al-values conservatism.
Even in the case of the most
ideologically disposed candidate,
politics will always be the art
of the possible, particularly in
a nation as big and complex as
ours.
Consider, for instance, that
the Supreme Court has recently
agreed to hear a challenge to
racial preferences in admissions
policies at the University of Texas.
There is a good chance that the
court decision will overturn the
Grutter v. Bollinger decision of
2003 in which racial preferences
were upheld.
That decision, arguing that the
nation needed to continue racial
preferences in college admis-
sions, was written by then-Justice
Sandra Day O'Connor, who was
President Ronald Reagan's first
Supreme Court appointment
Given Reagan's legacy as a
conservative hero, it is hard to
believe that his first Supreme
Court appointment was a pro-
choice moderate.
It is also worth recalling that
shortly into his first term, Reagan
convened a commission under
the leadership of Alan Greenspan
to fix Social Security. Rather than
proposing bold changes in the
structure of Social Security, the
panel simply slapped temporary
patches on a broken system, rais-
ing taxes and cutting benefits.
By avoiding addressing the core
structural problems of the sys-


tem, the Greenspan commission
allowed the problem to get worse,
and bequeathed to us today an
even more difficult challenge.
Do the O'Connor appointment
and the Greenspan commission
challenge Reagan's legacy as a
great conservative leader?
Certainly not Leadership is art
Even the most principled leaders
must set priorities and choose .
which battles to fight It is impos-
sible to do it all.
A leader must identify the big-
gest, most immediate challenges
and decide where compromises
are unthinkable.
In the case of Reagan, this was
cutting taxes, shrinking govern-
ment and taking a hard stand
internationally against commu-
nism and the Soviet Union.
The most immediate chal-
lenge for our nation today is
understanding that our hobbled
economy reflects erosion of the
cultural pillars that make possible
a free society.
When Reagan became presi-
dent, 18 percent of American
babies were born to unwed moth-
ers. This has grown today to over
40 percent
The way to stop runaway gov-
ernment is to understand that
it reflects the collapse of core
values, which define personal
responsibility and form the glue
that keeps American families
intact
There is no candidate today
clearer on this than Santorum. It's
why I think, despite the onslaught
of attacks, he will not only not
lose his attractiveness among con-
servative voters, but the attraction
will strengthen.

'Downton Abbey' is bloody good soap


Readers are politely
advised that the
following column
is best read with a
nice cup of tea and
perhaps a buttered scone or
crumpet. Ring the bell for the
butler before proceeding.
I say, are you ready now?
Frightfully good. As you may
have surmised, today's subject is
"Downton Abbey," which has just
completed its second season on
the PBS "Masterpiece Classic"
series, leaving large numbers of
American viewers wishing they
had a footman.
So, moved by mysterious
yearnings, my lady ordered
the DVD of the first season of
"Downton Abbey" and we were
soon vicarious residents of Lord
Grantham's mansion while also
watching on TV the second sea-
son, which ended Sunday night
It turned out to be a splendid
show, not only sumptuous .visually

but also rich in character. The
English occupy a small damp
island, and it would seem that
characters rise up like mush-
rooms in that environment,
with some poisonous toadstools
thrown in for dramatic effect
What is amazing is how much
goes on in the abbey. You would
think that the most that would
happen is the odd argument
about place settings.
But the plot is propelled by the
sinking of Titanic, and what fol-
lows is the search for a new heir,
the First World War, ill-advised


courtships, the appearance of a
disfigured character who may
be the old heir, the Spanish flu
epidemic, deaths, the kissing of
maids, an unwed mother, black-
market activity, a valet charged
with murder, a shocking secret
scandal involving a Turkish visi-
tor found dead in a lady's bed, a
lady eloping, a dog disappearing,
an engagement with suitor on
bended knee and anything else
you can think of. Why, my own
dear lady's book club doesn't
trade in this much gossip and
intrigue.
Which brings me reluctantly
to the terrible truth: "Downton
Abbey" is really a soap opera. Oh,
yes, it is fancy English lavender
soap in dainty packaging, and
the opera may be Gilbert and
Sullivan, but its soap opera none-
theless.

Every

reform plan


candidates beating
the drums for various
tax plans, Article 1,
Section 7 of the U.S.
Constitution is unmistakably
clear on one point:
"All bills for raising
Revenue shall originate in the
House of Representatives; but
the Senate may propose or
concur with Amendments as
on other Bills."
The House's chosen instru-
ments for raising revenues
- that's taxes to us laypeople
- is the House Ways and
Means Committee, perhaps
the most powerful panel in
Congress. Its leader is invari-
ably described as "the power-
ful chairman."
It's a good bet that the vast
majority of Americans have
no idea who that person is
despite his influence on their
economic well-being. He is
11-term Rep. Dave Camp,
R-Mich., described by CQ's
"Politics in America" guide as
"an unassuming policy wonk
who diligently works behind
the scenes to listen to others
and find compromises."
His reception of President
Barack Obama's proposed cor-
porate-tax reforms was luke-
warm, concluding, "Notably,
the administration's proposal
fails to address the need for
comprehensive reform of our
tax code."
The need for a thorough
overhaul of the tax code is
incontestable, but it would be
a herculean legislative task
requiring a Congress far less
emotional and more reason-
able and willing to compro-
mise than this one or the
one likely to succeed it.
And an army of tax lobby-
ists stands ready to defend
their clients' loopholes,
special breaks, exemptions,
incentives and other breaks
that have grown over the
years to make the tax code
the monster it is.
Despite that daunting obsta-
cle, the four remaining GOP
presidential candidates have
all come out with their tax-
reform plans because, well,
it's expected of them.
According to the non-
partisan Committee for a
Responsible Federal Budget,
Newt Gingrich's and Rick
Santorum's plans, with their
generous cuts and absence of
new revenues, would blow a
huge hole in the national debt.
The study says that
Gingrich's plan would add $7
trillion to the national debt
over the next nine years;
and Santorum's, $4.5 trillion.
These are worse than no plans
at all because the government
would fare better simply by
running on automatic pilot.
Mitt Romney's plan, with
many details yet to come,
would have a 2016 deficit
of $700 billion to $800 bil-
lion, according to the study.
Obama's plan promises a
deficit of $649 billion in 2016,
using tax increases to do it.
Ron Paul, the GOP's liber-
tarian outlier, has a plan to
more than offset his tax cuts
by spending cuts, and reduce
the deficit by $2.2 trillion,
but by the politically improb-
able course of eliminating
five Cabinet departments and
greatly reducing spending on
popular social programs.
The only thing standing in
the way of any of these plans
is the Constitution and an
unassuming policy wonk from
Michigan. But the candidates


can't be accused of not having
a tax plan.

CHURCH: Senior officials break silence, speak out on various issues

Continued From Page 1A


media, "there has to be another
side reported," Burbach said.
"People need to hear once and
for all the truth." News coverage
will get people to the church's
website to find out the truth for
themselves, he said.
Twenty years ago when media
came to their doorstep, Sparks
said, he was given the job of chief
spokesman. The church did talk
to the media in the beginning but
their message got so twisted that
Meade put a stop to it.
"When people would call
me my standard response was
I don't have any comment, and
that immediately put this cloak
of secrecy over it but he was the
one who was in charge of this
church," Sparks said.
Burbach said the church has
never given an answer to many of
the claims surrounding it because
Meade was from a different time.
"His firm belief was we know we
are doing right and no matter
what they say it'll show out who
we really are," Burbach said. "And
I'm a little different I believe the
same things he does, but at the
same time I understand today's
environment I understand today's
business climate."
Abram Huber, another church
official said, "Ninety-nine percent
of what was written [about the
church] was some sort of a lie or
a misperception from somebody
who got upset about something
or another and left the church,
usually over the truth of the Bible
being preached."
Huber said the group wants to
dispel the rumors, "and then from
there if somebody wants to-have
a problem with something and
the message we preach, make it
about the message. Don't make it
about a lie."


'The myths about the church just circulate
and confuse people until they can come in
here and actually feel and see the heart of
the ministry.'

Isaac Bratovich,
Mountaintop Ministries church official


Huber said if anyone in the
community asked a member what
the church is about, the answer
would be an invitation to listen to
the sermons.
Beginnings
Burbach said Meade started
preaching about the Lord coming
back some day, often to college
students.
"It was called an end-time nies-
sage," Burbach said. "It was a
fiery message about a people that
needed to get ready to live their
lives the best they possibly could
so they knew they would have
eternal life."
As time went on Meade became
a focal point, Burbach said. After
Meade died in April 2010, Burback
said he "decided to make it more
about the message and not as
much about the man."
Members began moving to Lake
City in the mid-to-late 1980s to join
the church.
Meade was not worshipped as
an idol, but was rather respect-
ed out of a sense of gratitude,
Burbach said. He preached a mes-
sage to "long-haired hippies" when
few else would, Burbach said.
S"These people felt grateful that
they are living the kind of life we
are now," he said.
People wanted to show him
respect and they clapped for


Meade during services, much in
the way people applaud presidents
and musicians, he said.
"If this was something of man
and after man and if it was a cult
and if this was a cult leader, like
these people out here seem to
think it was, it would be falling
apart right now," Sparks said. "But
it's not"
"This is a ,group of people who
are saved, baptized in the Holy
Ghost, speaking in tongues, filled
with the power of God, and the pas-
sion and the heart and the desire
to take the gospel message to the
ends of the earth and the Lord's
going to be behind something like
that," Sparks said.
Christians know well that
if you're going to stand up and
declare the gospel of Jesus Christ
in this world you will suffer perse-
cution, he added.
Burbach said the media loves
getting pictures from behind the
church's fence, but he wouldglad-
ly tear it down if they would pay for
the vandalism that would ensue.
He said he has grown up with
people egging his home and mak-
ing rude gestures as they passed
the church. "People treat you like
a sub-class of human," he said
Changes
Burbach said Meade Ministries
became Mountaintop Ministries


Worldwide on June 27, 2011.
"The church is called
Mountaintop Ministries because
we feel like we preach a message
that will elevate a people up, that
will lift them up into the moun-
taintops and God. It talks about in
the Word how in the last days a
word would come out and people
would say, 'Come, let's go up.
Let's-charge. Let's do better. Let's
change our lives and go climb the
mountain of the Lord.' And that's
the message we preach."
Burbach said the "worldwide"
aspect of the church is that the
sermons are now posted on the
church's Facebook page and
website, which was launched
Tuesday.
Sparks said every one in the
church feels a fresh desire to
get this message out, whether
it is person to person or via the
Internet.
"There is a group of people
here who have that desire and
that passion fo carry the gospel
of Jesus Christ to the ends of the
earth so that all souls who would
be out there could be saved," he
said. 'This is not confined to just
this place."
The church does not add to or
take away from the teachings in'
the King James Bible,. Burbach
said. "We report what the Bible
says and we let other people
decide what to do with it."
The Cadillacs
The public often believes that
Cadillac ownership was a require-
ment of the church or that mem-
bers received a free luxury car
but that was never true, Burbach
said.
'The Cadillac has nothing to do
with our religion. I drive a Range
Rover," he said. "A Cadillac, is


something that my grandfather
liked as a car and at the time
nobody else really had very nice
cars. Around here when some-
body likes, something everybody
kind of likes that too."
Burbach said Meade enjoyed
seeing that others also liked
Cadillacs, but that was a genera-
tional thing. "To me I love it when
everybody drives the kind of car
they can afford," Burbach said.
Burbach said he is willing
to put an end to behavior that
makes others think the church
strange, such as members driving
Cadillacs.
"We might as well get rid of
things people think we are crazy,
about," he said.
He added, "We are not just try-
ing to conform," but some things
have nothing to do with religious
beliefs.
Views on medical treatment
Five yeats ago, Burbach's mid-
dle son, 1 year old at the time, fell
into a swimming pool and was
taken by helicopter to Shands in
Gainesville, he said. At the hospi-
tal Burbach was told responding
paramedics marked on the boy's
medical chart that his parents
were "End Timers" and therefore
refused medicine, although no
one told them or indicated that,
he said.
"They knew who we were," he
said. "It was just showed very
clearly what local perception
was."
Fortunately, Burbach said,
his son was revived quickly and
stayed 24 hours at the hospital for
doctors to monitor him.. Now the
boy is a healthy 6-year-old.
Burbach said the outcome

Material things
Although there was never
a rule to look or dress a cer-

upheld high standards, he
said. "We've done the best
we can," Burbach said. "We
dress the best. We drive
the best. We look the best.
We try to keep our yards
clean. We try to keep our

"People might think that's

"As the church goes we
would never tell somebody
not to have contact with their
family. We would never tell
somebody that it's wrong to
see their family or try to help
their family or to spend time
with their family," he said.
John Linton, a church
member for 40 years, said he
and his children spent lots of
time with his parents while
they were alive, although
they were not members.
"This life has done nothing
but promote a strong family,"
he said. "I can't answer for
other people but I can tell
you I loved my mom and
dad."
Marriage
Burbach said he does
not keep track of teenaged
church members who get
married. He said there are
plenty of members who aren't
married in their late twenties.
It wouldn't be the church's
business to tell young mem-
bers to wait or marry, he
said.
"As far as my boys go,
I'll get them married when
,I want Personally I would
probably marry them off at
18, 20. I believe they should
get married if they need to,"
he said.
"If they're gonna go out
there and they're gonna for-
nicate and they're gonna go
out and do something, I think
ifs up to their parents what
they do."
Burbach, who married at
17, said he believes the mem-
bers are raising good kids
thathave enough sense to not
get pregnant very young.
Home and charter school
Although the group has
primarily home-schooled
children in the past, the
church is organizing to
open a charter school. The
Columbia County School
Board approved the initial
application for Belmont
Academy charter school
Feb. 14.
If a final contract is negoti-
ated with the school district,
the school would open for
the 2013-14 school year with
About 266 students in kin-
dergarten through eighth
grade, most of them children
of Mountaintop members.
The school will be located

worship center.
The school will not offer
religious instruction, said
Michael Cady, Belmont
Academy principal, after the
application was approved.
As required by law, char-
ter schools cannot be limited
to or associated with a par-
ticular religious denomina-
tion in its programs, admis-
sion policies, employment
practices and operations.
Charter schools are funded
in the same way as all other
public schools. in the dis-
trict.
"Most everybody in this
church for a good amount
of time has been home
schooled," Huber said.
However, not everyone has
and it is certainly not a man-
date, he said.
Home-schooling has pro-
duced successful people, he
said. "We are not a back-
wards bunch of failures."
"I want a school for my
children," said Burbach, cit-
ing the discipline and struc-
ture a school environment
brings.
"I would love to see our
school have 'A-plus' ratings
and become one of the big-
gest schools in Columbia
County."
Most of the parents that
now home school their chil-
dren seem happy about the
charter school, said Linton,
who is on the school's board
of directors.
Burbach said he was
home-schooled and graduat-
ed at 16, earning real estate
and construction licenses
soon after. Growing up in
the area, Bubach said, he is
grateful his parents didn't
put him in a classroom
where other students might
think him odd or unusual.
"We are not a brain-
washed people. We are busi-
ness leaders, people that
have owned companies for
decades and active in the
community," Kennedy said.
"We are very proud to be
part of this ministry."

BOCA RATON Two
brothers' unique private
museum of classic cars,
rare musical instruments
and other collectibles was
emptied Saturday with the
final strike of an auction-
eer's gavel, bringing in
$38.3 million in sales.
Two days of bidding
on 550 lots neared their
conclusion with the big-
gest sale of-them all, $3.3
million for the only known
surviving 1912 Oldsmobile
Limited, more than double
its pre-auction estimate.
The final tally came in
just below the roughly $40
million the auction houses
estimated they'd yield.
Most of the automobiles
sold at or above their esti-
mates, though bids for
many of the rare musical
instruments came in below
expected ranges. The cen-
terpiece of the collection, a
stunning custom-built mer-
ry-go-round, sold for nearly
$1.3 million.
'"Think of all the friends
you could have over,"
said the auctioneer, Max
Girardo, as the carousel
went up for sale.
Bob Milhous, 75, and
his brother Paul Milhous,
73, spent decades build-
ing their collection. The
Milhous Collection, as
it has become known, is
housed in a 39,000-square-
foot building. It was never


opened to the public,
though it played host to
charity fundraisers and
some small private tours.
The brothers made their
fortune in the printing busi-
ness and a variety of other
ventures. They decided to
sell off their collectibles,
though, as they planned
their estates. They hired
two auction houses, RM
Auctions and Sotheby's,
to sell their prized posses-
sions.
The offerings were
eclectic, to say the least.
A vintage barber chair
sold for $28,875, and a toy
Mercedes-Benz car went
for $34,500, both far above
their estimates. Also fetch-
ing higher-than-expected
bids was a grandfather clock
that netted $103,500, a neon
sign from a Chevrolet deal-
ership that went for $82,800
and a 1941 PT-22 airplane
that sold for $241,500..
All manner of other items
were sold, too: giant toy
soldiers that once stood at
FAO Schwarz in New York,
funhouse mirrors, Tiffany
lamps, vintage gas pumps,
fine furniture and antique
guns.
The real highlights of
the collection, though,
were the antique cars,
which sat perfectly shined
in the showroom, and the
rare music boxes, player
pianos, organs and orches-
trions, which are made to
simulate the sound of an
orchestra all in one piece.


Anti-smoking funds

being called upon


By MICHAEL GORMLEY
Associated Press
ALBANY, N.Y. Steve
Panetta smoked for 34 years,
the last 10 at a three-pack-
a-day clip. He watched his
father die from lung cancer
and his stepfather struggle
with emphysema. He tried
quitting six times before a
state-funded cessation pro-
gram helped him beat the
habit in 2002.
Weekends now find him
the guest speaker at anti-
smoking programs, exhort-
ing people to quit He speaks
for free and pulls no punch-'
es.
"I rub itright in theirface,"
said Panetta, 55, of Troy "I
say, 'If I could make you feel
the way I felt back then for
five minutes, then wipe it
away and let you feel like I
feel now for two minutes,
you would throw the ciga-
rettes away."'
He credits a similar in-
your-face attitude in the
state's anti-smoking ads and
programs for helping him
quit Now, funding for those
often chilling TV ads and
other smoking cessation
programs in New York and
other recessiofi-battered
states is being, slashed,
sometimes more than other
government programs,
despite success and savings
in health care costs.


A U.S. Surgeon General's
report due to be released
March 8 will come down
hard on states that have
cut anti-smoking funds
in tough fiscal times, said
Terry Pechacek, who over-
sees the report as director
for Science in the Office on
Smoking and Health at the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention.-
The report can't result in
sanctions, but it has proven
to. move public opinion in
the past to force changes
by tobacco companies in
how they sell cigarettes,
how states fund efforts and
how the federal government
regulates the trade.
"It is a hard-hitting report
and its going to say, "Why
haven't we ended this epi-
demic? Why are we still ,
feeling all these replace-
ment smokers into a deadly
industry?'" Pechacek said .-
in an interview while oppos- .
ing proposed budget cuts in
Albany. "We've been saying
since 1964 that we are going
to do something about it,
and we are basically in a
stall," he said.
There are increased fed-
eral efforts to cut into the.,
smoking rate. The Food and
Drug Administration is plan-
ning to spend about $600
million over five years to
educate the public about the
dangers of tobacco use.

Columbia High had a
rude welcome to its home
field as errors turned into
a loss for the Tigers in a
5-1 afternoon contest
against Auburndale High.
The Bloodhounds found
blood in the second inning
as a couple of errors helped
turn a 1-0 lead for the Tigers
into a 4-1 deficit
Columbia started strong
with one run in the first
inning, but the bats went
cold from there as the
Tigers weren't able to string
together hits.
Kellan Bailey had a
lead-off single against
Bloodhounds pitcher
Burris Warner and Seth
Thomas followed up with
another hit. After an out,
Levi Hollingsworth hit a
shot at the third baseman to
score Bailey. Hollingsworth.
was thrown out at first and
a strikeout in the next at-
bat got Warner out of the
inning.
From that point, he set-

their first 16 shots from the
field before Boynton's 3 cut
the lead to 19-11 midway
through the first half. Beal's
layup brought Florida
within three at the 2:48
mark, but Georgia went on
a 10-2 run to make it 36-25
in the final minute of the
half.

James Buescher dodges


wreck to win Daytona race


By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press

DAYTONA BEACH
- James Buescher was
the surprise winner of the
Nationwide Series opener
at Daytona International
Speedway, dodging a huge
11-car accident that wiped
out the leaders on the final
lap of Saturday's race.
Buescher was in 11th
place as he rounded the
final turn and weaved his
way through a massive pack
of spinning race cars.
The accident, the third.
multi-car wreck in the wan-
ing laps, appeared to start
as the tandem of Tony
Stewart and Elliott Sadler
charged to the top of the
track to make a three-wide
pack among the leaders.
Kurt Busch was leading on
the bottom of the track with
younger brother, Kyle, push-
ing, and Kurt Busch seemed
to start sliding up the sur-
face in an attempt to block
the huge run on the out-
side. Joey Logano was being
pushed through the middle,
by defending Daytona 500
winner Trevor Bayne, and
all four cars began drifting
higher into Stewart, winner
of the last four Nationwide
openers here, was pinched
into the wall.
That triggered a chain-
reaction crash thathad many

worried about the safety of
the drivers involved.-
'We got a big run on the
outside, and all of a sud-
den the door got slammed
on us," said Stewart,
NASCAR's defending Sprint
Cup champion. "I don't
know why whoever it was
turned right, but it wasn't a
very good time to either try
blocking or moving."
Kurt Busch admitted he
tried to "crowd the outside
lane."
."'Didn't know that there
were two cars up there. I
thought it was just a single
lane," he said. "I was try-
ing to side draft to get the
best finish I could at the
end. Everybody was rac-
ing to the end. Man, a lot
of tore-up cars. That's just
everybody full throttle at
the end."
There was initial concern
for his younger brother,
Kyle, who appeared to-clear
the wreck but was hooked
by defending Nationwide
champion Ricky Stenhouse
Jr. The contact sent Kyle
Busch straight into the
wall.
"I don't even know where
to start. I don't even know
what happened," said Kyle
Busch. "I thought we had
the race won. Then those
guys were coming on the
top, and I thought, We'll see
where we settled in here.'

When they all crashed up
high, I was clear. I shot as
low as I could, and some-
body tagged me in the back
and hooked me dead right
It was a really, really hard
hit, and there were a few
more after that. It seemed
like they kept coming.
"I swore* when they all
went up high. I was the
leader for a second, and I'm
like, "I won this thing. I won
this thing."'
But it was Buescher,
who went low so low he
crossed the yellow out-of-
bounds line, but NASCAR
said it's allowed when avoid-
ing an accident to skirt
the cars and take the check-
ered flag. Buescher's win
was his first in NASCAR and
came a day after unknown
John King won the Truck
Series opener in another
wreckfest.
The multiple big wrecks
have prompted concerns
about Sunday's season-
opening Daytona 500,
NASCAR worked hard dur-
ing the offseason to break
up the two-car tandem rac-
ing that fans disliked, and
the return of pack racing
has led to many accidents
over SpeedWeeks.
But Brad Keselowski and
Sadler, who finished sec-
ond and third, both said
they feel safe going into
Sunday's race.

A break from Lin to put focus back on Howard


By BRIAN MAHONEY
Associated Press

ORLANDO Orlando
waited 20 years to host
All-Star weekend again,
and Dwight Howard wants
nothing to spoil the party.
So forget that trade
request, Magic fans. Ignore
the rapidly approaching
deadline for deals.
"All the other stuff can
wait," Howard said Friday.
"I just want people to have
fun and enjoy themselves.
This is All-Star weekend.
This is a time of celebration
for guys who've had great
first halves and guys who
have never even seen this."
Jeremy Lin has been
the NBA's biggest story
this month, but the focus
shifted back to Howard,
where it began this sea-
son, with the NBA's mid-
season event in the city he
insists he loves but wants to
leave.
That meant a wall of
reporters and cameras sur-
rounding him, asking the
same questions Carmelo
Anthony was peppered
with last year during All-
Star Friday, just before his
trade request from Denver
was granted.
'"Thank you, Dwight!"
Anthony yelled when .he
spotted the swarm. "It's
your turn!"
Howard has asked for a
trade, but h'e's still here and
there's no telling for how
much longer. The Magic
could deal their center
before the March 15 trade
deadline, or hold onto him
all season and risk losing
him while getting nothing
back in July.
Howard's table was
between Anthony and
LeBron James, two of
the league's best-known
stars. Yet neither had any-
where near .the attention of
Howard, and Anthony was

Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard yells as he coaches during the NBA All-Star celebrity basketball game, Friday in Orlando.


glad to yield the spotlight
after his status overshad-
owed last year's festivities
in Los Angeles.
"I'm glad ifs not me any-
more," Anthony said.
James went through
the free agency circus
the season before, and
acknowledged that it wore
on him.
"Yeah, absolutely," James
said. "I know exactly what
he's going through. It's a
tough situation but, he's
going to handle it. He's a
man. He's going to handle
it. He's going to do what's
best for him."
Lin wasn't forgotten, even
after James and the Heat on
Thursday forced him into
the worst game since he
became the Knicks' starter
earlier this month. Many
All-Stars were asked about
Lin, who was playing only


ip Friday's Rising Stars
Challenge featuring rook-
ies and second-year play-
ers yet was given his own
evening press conference
to accommodate the large
media interest.
Howard said every time
he watches TV, he sees
something about Lin, the
NBA's first American-
born player of Chinese or
Taiwanese descent. He was
asked if there was anything
that could stop the undraft-
ed guard from Harvard.
"Uh, he hasn't gone up
against the Great Wall of
Orlando yet," Howard said.
This wall may be move-
able.
The Magic have given
Howard's agent permission
to discuss deals with the
Nets,. Lakers and Dallas-
Mavericks, and there was
plenty of speculation he


could be dealt even before
the season began, just as
Chris Paul was.
That would have cre-
ated an awkward All-Star
reunion.
Howard literally towers
over this city, his face pic-
tured on billboards over-
looking the interstate and
on a giant Adidas ad high
atop the outside of the
Amway Center. This region
caters to visitors, but didn't
have to consider how it
would have welcomed
Howard.
"I'm here, so it doesn't
matter what would've or
should've happened'," he
said. "But you know I'm
here and we want to have
a great time. I'm looking
forward to all the events
and showing everybody my
city."
With its new arena in just


its second season, Orlando
is hosting the All-Star game
for the first time since 1992,
one of the NBA's most
memorable. Magic Johnson
.won MVP honors only a
few months following his
retirement after contracting
the HIV virus.
Even Shaquille O'Neal,
who has been critical of
Howard in the past, says he
hopes the MVP this time
goes to Howard. O'Neal
started his career with the
Magic before bolting as
a free .agent, and he said
recently it would be a "trav-
esty" if Howard leaves.
If fans fear Howard fol-
lowing Shaq's path, he said
they never tell him.
"Whatever you decide to
do, we're behind you 100
percent," they say, accord-
ing to Howard. .
"They've been great,"


Howard added. "Despite
what people may say or
think, the fans here have
always been great to me. I
really appreciate it They've
showed me nothing but
love from Day 1 and I've
done the same thing. This
city means a lot to me."
Howard said he was
looking forward to playing
this weekend with James,
Anthony and Dwyane
Wade, who join league MVP
Derrick Rose in the pow-
erful Eastern Conference
starting lineup.
The West is an L.A.
story, with Kobe Bryant
and Andrew Bynum of the
Lakers joining the Clippers'
Paul and Blake Griffin.
Oklahoma City's Kevin
Durant rounds out the first
five.
The All-Star weekend
would have been in jeop-
ardy had the lockout lasted
much longer. An agree-
ment was reached during
Thanksgiving weekend
and the season opened on
Christmas, allowing for a
66-game schedule.
The play has been sloppy
and injuries have piled up
as players navigate a sched-
ule that forced them to play
on three straight nights for
the first time since 1999, fol-
lowing the last work. stop-
page. All the All-Stars said
they were eager to be here,
even though many prob-
ably would benefit from the
rest
And Wade said ugly play
won't be a problem Sunday
night.
"I think Sunday is going
to be great," he said. "I

Braun clean enough for arbitrator


By JIM LITKE
Associated Press

Ryan Braun said he
was clean and the only
guy whose vote mattered
agreed that he was clean
enough. Case closed.
Or not
But that's all Braun will
be from now on: clean
enough.
He called the decision
Thursday by arbitrator
Shyam Das overturning
his 50-game suspension
"the first step in restoring
my good name and reputa-
tion."
Good luck with that.
Because it doesn't matter
how carefully Braun choos-
es his words when he meets
with. reporters at Brewers
camp Friday, or how he par-
ries the inevitable questions
about juicing for as long
as he plays. People made
up their minds on this one
the moment word leaked
out in December that he
tested positive for elevated
testosterone levels, just like
they did with Barry Bonds,
Mark McGwire and Sammy
Sosa, et al., guys who
passed plenty of drug tests
in their careers, too. The
decision leaves Braun and
his supporters free to main-
tain his innocence. It leaves
everyone else, including
Major League Baseball,
free to insist that he got
off on a technicality. With
the almost-certain excep-
tion of Commissioner Bud
Selig, how close you live to
Miller Park in Milwaukee
is probably as good a pre-
dictor as any about which
side you chose at the outset
- and where you're likely
to remain.
The centerpiece of
Braun's appeal challenged
the chain of custody after
he gave his urine sample
to Comprehensive Drug
Testing Inc. on Oct. 1,
the Saturday the Brewers
opened the NL play-
'offs. Instead of dropping
it off that same day with
FedEx, as set out in the
drug agreement, the col-


lector decided it would be
more secure at his home
in a refrigerator over the
weekend than in a drop-off
box. Nearly 48 hours later,
he sent it to a World Anti-
Doping Agency-certified
laboratory in Montreal.
That may be all Das needed
to hear.
Yet some people on
Braun's side are hinting
that timing wasn't the only
problem the arbitrator had
with the chain of custody,
although' that won't be
known until Das releases
his written opinion some-
time within the next 30
days. Some :other people
couldn't wait that long,
already claiming to know
who the collector is and that
he had easy access to a lab.
Whatever. What is undeni-
able is that Braun's lawyer
raised enough doubts about
the process to make the
results irrelevant. In dop-
ing circles, that's scored as
a "W."
U.S. Anti-Doping'Agency
CEO Travis Tygart, whose
month got off to a bad start
when federal prosecutors
in Los Angeles closed their
investigation of seven-time
Tour de France champion
Lance Armstrong without
bringing charges, labeled
the Braun decision "a real
gut-kick to clean athletes."
But plenty of baseball
people, including a few in
Braun's NL Central neigh-
borhood where the
phrase "competitive bal-
ance" really means some-
thing had no problem
with him being able to play
on opening day.
"You never want to see a
guy go down," said Dusty
Baker, manager of the rival
Cincinnati Reds. "I would
never be happy about a guy
being suspended."
Baker might actually
believe Braun was clean,
or he might just be relieved
one of the game's rising
stars beat the system, same
as Baker would be if one
of his guys claimed inno-
cence, then beat long odds
and became the first ever to


Florida extends

Muschamp's

contract through '16


Associated Press


GAINESVILLE -
Florida has extended
coach Will Muschamp's
contract through 2016.
Athletic director Jeremy
Foley picked up the one-
year option in Muschamp's
contract in January even
though the Gators finished
7-6 in his first season.
The Sporting News first
reported Muschamp's
extension Friday.
Muschamp originally
signed a five-year deal
worth $13.75 million. The
one-year extension doesn't


include a salary increase.
Muschamp's first season
was mostly, forgettable.
But his first full recruiting
class was widely consid-
ered one of the best in
the country, and consider-
ing Florida played 15 true
freshmen last fall, many'
believe Muschamp is on
the verge of getting the
program back to national
prominence.
The Gators begin spring
practice March 14, with
the focus on settling a
quarterback competition
between Jeff Driskel and
Jacoby Brissett.

win an appeal. People in the
game decided long ago that
performance-enhancers are
an occupational hazard only
if you get caught. And either
way, the game metes out its
own version of frontier jus-
tice. Braun is coming off an
MVP season with a big con-
tract and without slugging
partner Prince Fielder, who
departed for Detroit. No
matter what else happens, a
big drop-off from the num-
bers Braun posted last year
- .332 with 33 homers and
111 RBIs will be treated
in the court of public opin-
ion the same as an admis-
sion of guilt.
The folks at MLB head-
quarters, meanwhile, must
be viewing the whole epi-
sode with mixed emotions.
The system worked, maybe
not the way it always has
previously or even the way


they envisioned.
"As a part of our drug-
testing program, the com-
missioner's office and the
players' association agreed.
to a neutral third-party
review for instances that are
under dispute," executive
vice president Rob Manfred
said in a statement. 'While
we have always respected
the process, Major League
Baseball vehemently dis-
agrees with the decision
rendered today."
As consolation, baseball
gets to keep the big draw
Braun has become and
the momentum in a'mar-
ket that's just beginning to
show signs of life again.
And so long as Braun holds
up his end of the bargain
on the field, they can say
with a clear conscience,
too, that their game is clean
enough.

Columbia High lost its

Tony Stewart (right) and crew chief Steve Addington pose with the trophy after winning the
first of two NASCAR Daytona Gatorade Duel 150 qualifying auto races in Daytona Beach -
on Thursday.


Stewart seeks first


victory in Daytona 500


By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press

DAYTONA BEACH
- Tony Stewart has had
plenty of chances to win
the Daytona 500, and he's
had his heart broken every
time.
Stewart wound up on his
roof in 2001, and his engine
blew in the opening laps of
the 2002 race. He finished
second to Dale Earnhardt
Jr. in 2004, and wrecked
while leading in 2007.
The most difficult defeat
was likely 2008, when Ryan
Newman was pushed past
Stewart on the last lap to
snatch away the victory.
Last year, Stewart was sec-
ond on the final restart but
faded to a 13th-place fin-
ish as rookie Trevor Bayne
pulled off the upset.
The race is such a
crapshoot that one of
the Daytona 500 rookies,
Danica Patrick, has said
she believes she's got as
good a chance to win the
race as anyone.
"I felt comfortable. I
feel more than ready for
Sunday," said Patrick, who
walked away from a violent
crash in Thursday's quali-
fying race.
Her car is owned by
Stewart, the defending
NASCAR champion who
goes into Sunday's sea-
son-opening Daytona 500
with a disappointing 0-for-
13 record in "The Great
American Race." Stewart
has been reminded every


day since arriving in
Daytona about his inability
to win the big race here.
"Ifs not a good feeling
to not have that tally in the
win column," Stewart said.
"Everything else we have
pretty much accomplished
in this sport that we want
to accomplish. It's the
biggest race of the year.
Everyone wants to win that
race. I won't say that it is
not a complete career if
you don't win it, but there
is a lot of priority on this."
He has a tremendous
opportunity once again.
Stewart, who closed last
season with five victories
in the final 10 races to win
his third NASCAR title, has
given no indication he's
slowed down one bit during
over the offseason. He lost
the exhibition Budweiser
Shootout last week when
Kyle Busch passed him at
the finish line, but rallied
to dominate his qualifying
race on Thursday.
The victory in the 150-
mile race gave Stewart the
third starting spot in the
Daytona 500. And unlike
years past, when he's hung
around the back of the
pack and waited to make
his move, he's given every
indication he wants to race
hard Sunday.
His performance during
SpeedWeeks, he believes,
has made him the driver
everyone should want
to work with on the race
track.
"I want those guys to see


. that we've got strength,"
he said. "I think ift's an
advantage to do that at this
point of the game, showing
that guys around you are
going to hopefully want to
be around you, and know.
that you've got a. car that
can stay up there, so they
want to stay with you."
The irony is that Stewart
has always been one of
the strongest drivers at
Daytona. His 17 victories
at the track rank second
only to the 34 tallied by the
late Dale Earnhardt.
But like Earnhardt, it's
the big race that's eluded
Stewart It took Earnhardt
20 tries to win the Daytona
500.
Hall of Famer Darrell
Waltrip needed 17 attempts
to win the Daytona 500. Mark
Martin has never won this
race. Neither have former
NASCAR champions Terry
Labonte, Bobby Labonte
or Kurt Busch, a three-
time runner-up and the guy
who pushed Newman past
Stewart in 2008.
"Ift's the race that can
define a driver's career,"
Busch said. "Its a priority
because of the prestigious
value and what it can dd
long-term and the immediate
impact Like the Super Bowl
this race is our spectacle."
Stewart, meanwhile, has
six top-10s in his 13 starts,
But he's the only driver
in NASCAR history with
three or more champion-
ships who has never won
the Daytona 500.

Lake City market will
reopen Wednesday with
new name, new look.
By HANNAH 0. BROWN

Local shoppers, prepare your-
selves. Lake City's local Food
Lion will go by a new name
starting Wednesday. Shelves
are emptied and readied for
restocking at the Food Lion, located on
U.S. 90 west of 1-75, in preparation for
the store's transition into a Harveys.
Food Lion stores across the state are
scheduled to close down, However, Lake
City's local branch will be converted into
a Harveys instead.
The site was chosen to make this tran-
sition because the customer base in the
Lake City area is believed to coincide
well with the hometown feel offered by
Harvey's stores.
"We believe that this location can


provide a hometown grocer approach
for customers in the market," said
Christy Phillips-Brown, External
Communications Director for Food Lion.
The new store will offer a full hot bar
and a butcher who is ready and willing


to custom-cut meat.
The store will
also put a strong
emphasis on
purchasing local
produce.
A coupon kiosk
will be made avail-
able to customers
with a store card,
said by Phillips-
Brqwn to "cus-
tomize" rewards

dance with what is

corporation has
scheduled to

underperform-


ing stores in the U.S.
The Lake City store is the only loca-
tion selected in the state to make this
transition.


Harveys stores will continue to main-
tain a presence in Florida with eight
operating locations within the state.
The brand extends into other Southeast
states with 64 locations in Georgia and
one in South Carolina.
Many aspects of the current Food
Lion will carry over to the new Harveys.
The store will keep the same employees,
including management staff. However,
employees will be instructed with some
additional training that is specific to
Harveys operations.
Much of the current inventory will
continue to be carried. According to ,
Phillips-Brown, prices will be compa-
rable to the previous store.
"We are expecting a jump in custom-
ers because of the lower prices and the
different things we will have," said Store
Manager Jeremy Wolf.
Food Lion was scheduled to close yes-
terday in preparation for the transition.
The new Harveys will open Wednesday
at 8:30 a.m. The store will keep the same
hours as the former Food Lion.


Pepsi's mid-calorie soda aims to win back drinkers


Cola slated to hit
store shelves by the
end of March.

By CANDICE CHOI
AP Food Industry Writer
NEW YORK Pepsi is hoping
to win back soda drinkers with a
compromise.
Some people don't like the calo-
ries in regular soda, but loathe the
taste of zero-calorie diet drinks.
So the nation's No. 2 cola com-
pany is rolling out "Pepsi Next,"
a cola that has about half the calo-
ries of regular Pepsi at 60 calories
per can.
The cola, which is slated to
hit store shelves nationally by
the end of March, is Pepsi's big--
gest product launch in years. The
drink comes as people increasing-
ly move away from sugary drinks
to water and other lower-calorie


beverages because of health con-
cerns. It's also an attempt by Pepsi
to revive the cola wars against
Coke and others.
Pepsi Next isn't the first drink to
try to hit the sweet spot between

diet and regular cola.
Dr Pepper Snapple rolled out its
low-calorie Dr Pepper Ten, which
has 10 calories. The company said
the drink, which has sugar unlike
its diet soda, helped boost its


fourth-quarter sales.
But coming up with a success-
ful "mid-calorie soda," which has
more calories, has been more
challenging for beverage makers.
In 2001, Coke rolled out "C2" and
Pepsi in 2004 introduced its "Pepsi
Edge," both of which had about
half the calories of regular soda.
Both products also were taken
off the market by 2006 because of
poor sales.
"The problem was that consum-
ers either wanted regular soda or
a diet drink with zero calories -
not something in between," said
John Sicher, editor and publisher
of Beverage Digest
Pepsi says its latest stab at an
in-between soda uses a different
formula to more closely imitate
the taste of regular soda. Pepsi
Next is made with a mix of three
artificial sweeteners and high
fructose corn syrup.
A Pepsi spokeswoman, Melisa
Tezanos, said the company devel-


oped the cola by researching the
"taste curve" that consumers
experience when drinking regu-
lar soda. She compared that arc
to how someone might evaluate
a sip of wine, from the moment
the liquid hits the tongue to the
aftertaste it leaves.
"We wanted to develop a taste
curve that gives the full flavor of
regular Pepsi," Tezanos said.
Pepsi Next also follows the com-
pany's lower-calorie variations of
its other drinks. Gatorade, a unit
of Pepsi, has "G2," which at 20 cal-
ories has a little less than half the
calories of the original version.
And the company's Tropicana
unit introduced '"Trop50," which
is half of the 110 calories in a
regular 8-ounce glass of orange
juice.
But orange juice and sports
drinks have nutritional benefits
that a drink maker can market. A

Bad Expectations
A while back, I fell into the
whole idea of penny stocks, and
I put a large amount of my cash
into one stock. It ended up going
bankrupt, and I lost around four
grand. I sulked for a long time. It
was a good learning experience,
though. I realized that you can't
really expect to make huge profits
overnight. I got into pen-
nies in the first place by
investing in companies ..
such as Citigroup, when
they were trading for peanuts after
the credit bubble burst. I made
good money on their recoveries.
- J.G., Mankato, Minn.
The Fool Responds: Citigroup's
stock price did plunge below a
dollar, but with its gobs of assets
and money-making businesses, it
was never a classic penny stock.
The typical penny stock is tied to
a risky and unproven company,
and its stock price is easily manip-
ulated by hypesters who promise
fast, huge gains. It's usually best
to avoid any stock trading for less
than $5 per share.
You also made a big mistake by

Netflix's Wild Ride
Shares of streaming-movie pro-
vider Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX) got
a standing ovation from investors
after the company delivered stellar
fourth-quarter results.
What a ride it's been for Netflix
shareholders. First, Netflix was the
hottest thing since volcano lava.
Then it tried to shake things up and
split off its DVD business, and sud-
denly the stock was colder than an
arctic glacier. Now, as the company
once again is convincing the market
that its growth story is far from over,
the shares have been advancing.
In its fourth quarter, Netflix man-
aged $0.73 in per-share earnings on
$876 million in revenue. Analysts
were expecting earnings per share
to come in at just $0.55. More
important, the company said that it
finished the quarter with more than
26 million total global subscrib-
ers, suggesting that the subscriber
defections may simply have been a
blip. Domestic subscribers were up
25 percent year-over-year.
Has the company fully addressed
concerns about encroaching compe-
tition from Hult and Amazon.com?
Not yet. Will its intematiofial push
end up paying off? That remains
to be seen.
The stock is not without risks,
but it's more of a bargain than it
was last year, when it traded at far
higher prices. Still, anyone buying
now better be prepared for volatil-
ity. (The Motley Fool owns shares

PEPSI: Mid-calorie soda aims to win back drinkers


Continued From Page 1C
A mid-calorie soda is a tougher sell
because it provides only empty calories. So
,health-conscious drinkers usually opt for
diet soda or quit soda altogether.
Sales in the $74 billon soft drink indus-
try have been fizzling out, with volume
"falling steadily since 2005, according to
Beverage Digest, which tracks the indus-
try. Meanwhile, healthier drinks are
growing more popular, with bottled water
"accounting for 11 percent of all beverages
consumed in 2010, up from 2 percent in
2000. Consumption of sports drink rose to


2.3 percent, from 1.2 percent.
Diet soda also rose to 29.9 percent of the.
carbonated drink market in 2010, up from
24.7 percent a decade earlier. To keep up
with changing tastes, Coke and Pepsi have
introduced newer versions of their diet
drinks Coke Zero and Pepsi Max -
that promise a taste that's more like their
regular sodas.
Pepsi hopes Pepsi Next will help it gain
back the market share it's lost in recent
years. The company's namesake drink had
its share in the carbonated soft drink mar-


ket fall to 9.5 percent in 2010,

go fishing

at Shirley's
On US 90 East
you'll find
another Lake
City treasure...
Shirley's.
The original restau-
rant opened in the 50's
and was called Kit Kat's.
Over the years there
have been other names,
Long's, Jimbo's and now
Shirley's. Owners Dawn
and Trammel Wasden
purchased Shirley's seven
years ago. The menu offers
up standard items, with
specials changing daily.
The d6cor will take you
back down Memory Lane.
Old car tags on the walls,
antique toys on the shelves,
signs everywhere and the
old crank telephone will
remind you of another
time. At the cash register
we loved the sign that says
$5 for Whining.
On a recent Friday,
Don Kennedy and Mike
Lee joined us for lunch
and they insisted we had
to get there early so that
they didn't run out of fried
catfish. When you walk
in, the smell of fresh fish
frying gets your taste buds
working! Not only did we
order catfish, but we had
to try out the fried shrimp
and the locally famous
cheeseburger.
The fingerling whole ,
catfish, yep bones and all,
are delicately battered and
fried crisply. Don says
you eat them like you are
eating corn on the cob,
nibble from one end to the
other. Brought in daily
from Mobley's Seafood on
North US 441, these delica-
cies were piled high on our
plates, steaming hot and
succulent If you aren't into
bones in your fish, they *
also have catfish fillets. Of
course hush puppies come
with all the fish orders.
Other selections available
this day included Chicken
and yellow rice, ham and
lima beans, salmon patties,
seafood platter, basa fil-
lets, fried mullet and fried
shrimp. Prices range from
$6.25 to $9.95. The fried
shrimp plate had more
than a baker's dozen and
even though we were filled
to the gills, so to speak, we
just couldn't stop popping
these fried delights in our
mouths,
Now, let's chat about
the cheeseburgers. The
ground beef, prepared daily
at Spires, is hand-pattied by
the cooks and tastes better
than the ones we remem-
ber our grandma's cook-
ing (who by the way were
fabulous in the kitchen!).
Cooked to perfection, you
can get it "your way" or
ATW. We can't remember
when we have had a better
burger. Remember, never
frozen or premade. Our
side order of fried onion
rings were williniii a doubt
some of i,, best ever...hot,
golden brown, sweet and
crispy. We've been back
twice for a repeat of iii',

Fort White family of 3
able to move out of camper
thanks to grant


By LAURA HAMPSON
Ihampson@lakecityreporter.com
after living in a
rotting mobile
home, a Fort
White family
of three has a
new place to call home.
Lola Pipkin, 58, was
the first Columbia County
resident to receive a new
home through a federal
Community Development
Block Grant
The $750,000 grant was
awarded to the county in
2010 to repair and replace
deteriorating homes.
Pipkin and her adopted
daughters Christy, 17, and
Mycala Pipkin, 15, lived in
a small camper for eight
months after their 27-year-
old mobile home was con-
demned.
"It basically fell apart,"
Pipkin said of the mobile
home. The camper was
just big enough for a
place to sleep. "It was like
a cracker box," she said.
The family used a tent to
store their belongings and
used the bathroom of the
condemned mobile home.
Pipkin said she used to
watch as her daughters
slept in the camper and
think "God, what am I
doing to them, us living
like this."

Commissioner

At right: Kimi
Roberts hugs
Christy Pipkin,
17, after taking a
tour of the home
Wednesday.


Pipkin said she has faced hardships over
the past two years. She said she used to
work caring for seniors, but the degenera-
tive disk disease and arthritis in her back
made it too painful. Recently, Pipkin began
to receive Social Security benefits, which
makes ends meet.


JASun MAI iniW Ww


Pipkin's home, at 448 SW Legree Terrace,
has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and
1,067 square feet The family has been living
in the home for less than a month. "The day
they delivered the home I cried," she said.


--- "It's the most
amazing thing.
S" There are
S:--- no words to
describe it.
God has used it
to change our
lives."

Lola Pipkin

The home was $53,152,
including demolition of the
old mobile home and con-
struction, said David Kraus,
senior staff assistant for
A.LKER/Lake City Reporter the county. If Pipkin lives
S min the home for 15 years,
i A lshe owns it free and clear,
he said. If she moves
S before that time, there's a
prorated amount she must
pay back, he said.
In 2011 the county
received more than 80
applications for grant
assistance from residents.
There is enough money
.* ; ^ to repair or build at least
H -eight homes, maybe more,
he said. So far the county
has rehabilitated one
home and has a second
house under construction,
Kraus said.
,"Because we ran into
so much need we are
working to help people
LKER/Lake City Reporter get money through
the USDA," said Kimi

Commissioners staff member.

Fantasy camp for those who love to fly


By SCOTT MAYEROWITZ
AP Airlines Writer
ABOARD AMERICAN
AIRLINES FLIGHT 9454
- Eric Mueller's vacation
started when his plane filled
with smoke. Soon, people slid
down an emergency chute,
inflated life vests and climbed
into a raft.
Mueller loved every min-
ute of it
Most days he runs a book
review website. But on this
day he was living out a fanta-
sy at American Airlines' flight
attendant academy, practicing
evacuation procedures most
people hope to never use.
"I look at the safety card.
It's not supposed to be a comic
book of things you want to try,
but it all just looks cool," said
Mueller, 40, of Los Angeles.
There are people who grew
up wanting to be Mickey
Mantle. They go to Yankees
fantasy camp. Others dream
of playing CarnegieHal. They
join the summer orchestra at
the shore. Then there are.
aviation geeks like Mueller.
People like him and there
are more than you think -
charter a commercial airliner
and hop across the country
visiting the Meccas of the
aviation world..
The most recent journey
had 160 people paying up to
$1,699 for a seat and access
to spots normally off limits:
Boeing's sprawling 737 fac-
tory, American's mission
control-like operations center
and the cockpit of the world's
largest passenger jet.
Tickets sold out in 17 min-
utes.
"This is sort of the ulti-,
mate airplane nerd event,"
Mueller said.
Most people board a plane
to escape to a tropical beach,
see the Eiffel Tower or visit
their family. For this group,
the journey isn't just half the
fun. It's the whole point
They can differentiate
between Boeing a-d Airbus
jets just by looking at'their
tails. They know that on even-

The camaraderie was part


of the trip's appeal. Sure, it

was also fun to gulp down gin

purchase at Target, Macy's,
iTunes or another retailer
that's part of the airline's
shopping portal.
Such expertise led
American Airlines and sev-
eral other travel companies
to help set up the trip and use
it to pick the brains of these
veteran fliers. They wanted
to' know what these travelers
like and hate about the loy-


alty programs. Airlines need
to keep their most-frequent
customers happy. The top 20
percent of American's cus-
tomers generate about 70
percent of its revenue.
That's why Suzanne
Rubin, the new president
of the Americains frequent
flier program AAdvantage
- hopped on the plane,
along with other execu-
tives, for what she' called a
"crash course in customer
research."'

FREQUENT FUER
MILE MANIA
For those who don't travel
frequently or play the mile-
age game, it can be daunting
to understand the appeal of
the programs. Ifs not just
about free trips for this group.
It's a hobby some would
say obsession similar to
collecting stamps or brewing
your own beer.

day," said Tommy Danielson,
40, the director of sales at
a telecommunications com-
pany. The Chicago resident
organized the trip, called a
MegaDo frequent flier
lingo for a large group of
people meeting up to talk
miles. It was the fourth such
adventure Danielson has put
together since 2009.
Along the way, there was
plenty of bragging about
mileage runs cheap flights
taken only to accumulate
enough miles to qualify for
elite status.
Michael Rubiano, a Silicon
Valley product manager
did six, such roundtrips to
Chicago over eight days last
month. He would catch' a
flight after work, sleep on the
way to Chicago, immediately
turn around and sleep on
the flight home. Rubiano, 41,
then showered in the San
Francisco lounge, changed
clothes and went to work
only to repeat the trip eight
hours later.
I Each of his six tickets
cost him less than $200 and,
thanks to some bonus offers,
earned him 11,076 miles on
American to be used later
for a dream vacation. All told,
that gave him 66,456 miles
and put him over the top in
his annual quest to re-qualify
for the airline's top elite sta-
tus.
With that status he gets:
another year' of upgrades,
free liquor, waived bag frees,
the ability to skip security
lines and double miles on all
his flights. Compare that to
the folks in the back who get
... well, there's a reason some
in the industry refer to coach
passengers as "self-loading
freight"
"There were numerous
folks on my flights doing the
exact same thing," Rubiano
said.
I A free domestic coach
ticket can be had for 25,000
miles. But thafs not the goal.
People in this group would
rather shell out the $300 for
the ticket and save for a big
reward like flying first class
to Asia for 125,000 miles, a
ticket that normally sells for
more than $10,000.
Once you start gaming the
system, the miles rack up
fast Those on the MegaDo
trip have a lifetime average
of 1.6 million miles earned
through flying and credit
cards with American
alone.

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & CROSSWORD SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2012


DEAR ABBY


Student has seen the light


and hopes parents will too


DEAR ABBY: I'm a sopho-
more at a religious university
that is.well regarded in both
secular and religious circles.
I came here to become a
doctor because the pre-med
program has an outstanding
acceptance rate to medical
school.
However, in my third quar-
4 'ter I took a religious studies
course and fell in love with
the department I'd like to
pursue a career in this field,
perhaps as a professor. I have
an excellent GPA and am
working three jobs.
My problem is that my
parents are not supportive.
They think I'm being imprac-
tical and will end up working
in a fast-food restaurant for
the rest of my life. I thought
they'd be thrilled I have taken
such an interest in our faith.
Becoming a doctor no longer
interests me. How can I con-
vince them-that I can major
in religious studies and not
live in poverty? REBEL IN
CALIFORNIA
DEAR REBEL: You
shouldn't pursue a career in
medicine unless your heart
is in it because if it isn't, you
won't make a very good doc-
tor. Unless you plan to take
a vow of poverty, a career in,
religion doesn't mean you'll
end up living hand-to-mouth.
While money is important,
it's more important that you
devote your life to something
that gives you emotional grati-
fication.
I ** ** **


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com

DEAR ABBY: As a
divorced dad, I'm hoping
you'll address a problem I
have encountered in trying
to co-parent my children. My
daughters are often invited to
parties and sleepovers, which
sometimes happen during
my parenting time, as well as
during my ex-wife's parenting
time. The invitations to these
events, however, are almost
always sent to my ex-wife's
home or email address.
Aside from the problems
that have occurred because
the information wasn't for-
warded to me in a timely man-
ner, I think it's sexist for invi-
tations to be sent only to the
mother. It reinforces the out-
dated notion that a woman's
role is to raise children, and a
father can't be an active par-
ent. Would you please remind
your readers that the most
appropriate way of inviting a
child who has two households
is to send the invitation to
BOTH parents? MODERN
DAD IN ROSWELL, GA.
DEAR MODERN DAD:
I think you have delivered
that message very clearly.


However, if not every reader
takes it to heart, make a
point of discussing with your
ex-wife what activities may
have been scheduled for your
daughters while they're with
you. That way they won't miss
out on anything.

DEAR ABBY: I was
recently diagnosed with
a cancerous tumor on my
tongue that has made it
extremely difficult and pain-
ful to talk. The problem is
I don't know how to handle
encounters with strangers in
public places i.e., grocery
stores, libraries, etc. I have
always been polite and cour-
teous, but now I can do no
more than nod. What would
you suggest in this situation?
- SUDDENLY SILENCED
IN FLORIDA
DEAR SUDDENLY
SILENCED: Make eye
contact with the people you
would normally greet ver-
bally and give them a smile
as you are already doing.
If someone tries to engage
you in conversation, point
to your throat, shake you
head "no," and mouth the
words "can't talk." If you feel
further explanation is nec-
essary, have cards printed
that state, "I am unable to
speak." That way, no one
should take offense.

YouTube enlists big-name help to redefine c

By RYAN NAKASHIMA N


-Y^
AP Business Writer
CULVER CITY, Calif.
- YouTube is enlisting
Hollywood's help to reach a
generation of viewers more
familiar with smartphones
than TV remotes.
The online video giant is
aiming to create 25 hours
of programming per day
with the help of some of the
top names in traditional TV.
The Google-owned site is
spreading its wealth among
producers, directors, and
other filmmakers, using
a $100 million pot of seed
money it committed last
fall. The fund represents
YouTube's largest spending
on original content so far.
YouTube believes it is
laying groundwork for the
future. While the number of
traditional TV watchers has
leveled off in recent years,
more and more people are
watching video on mobile
phones, tablets and com-
puters, especially the 18- to
34-year-old age demograph-
ic that advertisers covet -
The idea is to create 96
additional YouTube chan-
nels, which are essentially
artists' home pages, where
viewers can see existing
video clips and cliek "sub-
scribe" to be notified when
new content goes up.
Well-funded videos by a
select roster of stars are
likely to be more watchable
than the average YouTube
fare of cute cats and web-
cam monologues. YouTube
is betting that a solid stream
of good content will attract
more revenue from adver-
tisers, bring viewers back
frequently and bolster its
parent company's fledgling
Web-connected-TV plat-
form, Google TV.
The cash has enticed
some of TV's biggest stars,
including "Fast Five" direc-
tor Justin Lin, who directs
episodes of "Community,"
"CSI" creator Anthony
Zuiker and Nancy Tellem,
the former president of CBS
entertainment.
Zuiker is teaming up on a
horror series for YouTube
after observing his own
family's behavior. His three
pre-teen sons spend more
time on phones, iPads and
computers than watching
TV these days.
"We want to jointly take
the risk with YouTube
and roll the dice on the
future," Zuiker says. "The
old regime is going to falter
because everybody thinks

the TV is the only device
that really counts, and that's
just not the case."
For producers, it's a
chance to create shows
that are completely free of
meddling from major stu-
dios. They can also stay rel-
evant with a younger crowd
whose viewing is moving
increasingly online.
Several new channels
such as the extreme sports-
focused Network A and
Spanish-language Tutele
have launched already.
YouTube hopes to have
them all up and running by
this summer.
"This was really about
galvanizing the ecosystem
at large," says Alex Carloss,
global head of original pro-
grammingfor YouTube. "We
see the portfolio (of funded
channels) really represent-
ing the best of TV meeting
the best of the Web."
YouTube isn't the only
Web video service that has
started to pay for original
content. Netflix Inc. recently
launched the original series
"Lilyhammer," while Hulu
premiered "Battleground."
But YouTube videos tend
to be under 10 minutes,
instead of fitting into tra-
ditional half-hour or hour-
long TV slots. And aside
from a few guidelines, ulti-
mate control is given over


to the artist, including what
is uploaded and when new
episodes appear.

Maker cranks out about
300 YouTube videos each

The studio's videos gener-
ate a whopping 500 million

largely to established hits
that include Ray William
Johnson's roundup of crazy
videos and such viral giants
as "Epic Rap Battles of

Advertisers pay up to $10

Established YouTubij
partners share roughly h+b
