Marco Rubio said Wednesday that Mitt Romney will win the White House, but not with him on the ticket. Im not going to be the vice president, the tea party favorite said at the opening of a new constitu-ent office in Palm Beach Gardens. Asked about a suggestion by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush that he is the clear choice as Romneys run ning mate, Rubio returned the favor, saying: I think Jeb would be a great VP. Rubio has endorsed Romney and declared the primary over even though everybody may not agree with whos won. The first-term senator also predicted a victory for oppo nents of President Barack Obamas signature health care legislation, saying Im fairly confident that the Supreme Court is going to render a decision thats true to the Constitution, which in my opinion means theyre going to overturn significant portions of the health care law. Rubio also weighed in on the case of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old whose Feb. 26 shooting death at the hands of a neighborhood watch volunteer has spurred debate over Floridas stand your ground law that allows for the use of deadly force during a confrontation. Rubio supported the law while in the state House and says its premature to talk about repealing it. I dont know what hap pened in this case, but stand your ground does not allow you to chase somebody and shoot them, he said. So Im not saying thats what happened in this case, but if it happened in this case or in any other case, stand your ground doesnt apply. Rubio called the shooting a tremendous tragedy but said he was troubled people are rushing to judg-ment.ASSOCIATED PRESSSen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., addresses the Conservative Politi cal Action Conference in Washington in February. Rubio e ndorsed Mitt Romney as the partys presidential nominee Wednesday, March 28, 2012, saying its increasingly clear that Romney will win the nomina tion and that continuing the primary fight will only damage the effort to defeat President Barack Oba ma.HANNAH O.

County looks within for next fire chiefResponse time, management part of duties.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comCounty officials are looking to promote from within as they search for the Columbia County Fire Departments next perma-nent chief. County officials desig nated Lt. David Boozer as CCFD interim chief. Boozer has been given some very specific bench-marks and guidelines while he is the interim chief for him to meet and/or accom-plish, said Dale Williams, county manager. Boozer has been told that based on the performance of those he will be given proper con-sideration to be made the permanent fire chief. The benchmarks include dealing with financial issues such as a department gas card that was allegedly used inappropriately by a volun-teer firefighter, examining how the county maintains its current ISO ratings, helping the county fire department reduce and eliminate over-time expenses, and improv-ing response times. Were looking at how we provide the delivery of ser-vices and is that being done in the most cost effective manner possible, Williams said. Past plans for the fire department included a pro-posal for construction of a fire station on the east side of town. The problem in the fire New sidewalk set for Melrose Park studentsConstruction is slated to startthis month.By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comWalking to school will be safer for Melrose Park Elementary students next year when new sidewalks, school zone signs and cross-walks are installed. Work is expected to begin this month and should be completed before school starts again in the fall, said Gina Busscher, public information direc tor for Florida Department of Transportation District Two. The $237,250 project is part of the federally-fund-ed Safe Routes to School Program and managed by the state DOT. The program aims to make bicycling and walking to school safer and more appealing. A new sidewalk will be constructed on the west side of Southeast Ermine Avenue from East Duval Street to Southeast Brown Street, Busscher said. Currently there is a side-walk on the east side of the street. Sidewalks will also be paved on the south sides of Southeast Brown Street and Southeast Putnam Street between Southeast Avalon Avenue and Southeast Ermine Avenue. New crosswalks will be painted at sidewalk inter sections and new school zone signs will have flash-ing lights for greater visibil-ity. During school drop off and pick up times two new electronic signs will control traffic at the intersection of Southeast Putnam Street and Southeast Murray Terrace. Portions of Southeast Ermine Street will be resur-faced and restriped to bet-ter indicate the area is a school loading and unload-ing zone. The city of Lake City will spend about $23,000 to repave another portion of Southeast Ermine Avenue, said Thomas Henry, city public works director. The city planned to do the work in 2011, but waited in order to work at the same time as the federal project, he said. Ermine Avenue is very busy especially at the begin-ning and end of the school day, he said. Work will be done weekdays, but not between 7 and 8 a.m. or 1:45 and 2:45 p.m. Information will be sent out informing parents of the work and lane closures when a start date is final, Busscher said. About two years ago Melrose Park Principal Joe Adkins came to the Columbia Community Traffic Safety Team with safety concerns around the school zone, Busscher said. The team then asked the state DOT to consider the school for the federal money, which was awarded By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comThe Economic Development Advisory Board discussed the pos-sibility of attaining a cer-tification of the RACEC Catalyst site that would make the area more attrac-tive to potential investors. The certification, offered by a well-known private development company, would serve as an indica-tor that the site has been thoroughly inspected and is ready for development. Economic Development Director Jesse Quillen said there may be potential for landowner Plum Creek to play a role in investing in the certification, though no formal discussions have been conducted yet.

Attorney Pam Bondi made that announcement Wednesday. Federal prosecutors on Tuesday announced that Tampa-based WellCare Health Plans Inc. had agreed to pay $137.5 million to settle four lawsuits alleging fraud in nine states. Other states involved in the settlement are Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, New York and Ohio.

Ephesians 1:7 NIV Autopsy: Houston had cocaine in systemLOS ANGELES Whitney Houston was found face-down in a bathtub with cocaine in her system and drug paraphernalia on the bathroom counter nearby, investigators revealed in the singers final autopsy report released Wednesday. The report delivered a grim accounting of Houstons final hours nearly three months ago. The singer complained of a sore throat before an assistant suggested she take a bath before the start of a pre-Grammy Awards gala. By the time the assistant returned, Houston had drowned and was lying face down in the tub. Investigators who scoured the room later found in the bathroom a spoon with a white crystal like substance in it, and a white powdery substance in a drawer and on a mirror, according the report. The report does not specifically identify the substances as cocaine, although toxicology tests discovered the drug in Houstons heart and extremities. The report provides a sad footnote to Houstons life, revealing the toll the singers drug use took on her body. When coroners officials said two weeks ago that Houston died from accidental drowning, they also revealed that cocaine had played a role in her death. The office has said there were signs of both chronic and recent use.Trailer from Houstons movie makes its debut on TodayNEW YORK Viewers got a first glimpse of Whitney Houstons upcoming film Monday when NBCs Today show premiered a trailer for the much-awaited release, and a fuller clip debuted on Yahoo! Movies. A remake of the 1976 original, Sparkle stars Houston as the mother of three girls who form a singing group and struggle with fame and drug addiction. The trailer displayed the daughters, including American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, in performance. Houston is prominent throughout, at one point singing the classic gospel song His Eye Is on the Sparrow. She also tells one of her daughters: I always knew you had the gift. It makes me feel like I did something right. Dont lose it. Debra Martin Chase, who is a producer of the film, said she had mixed emotions with the trailers release; the movie is scheduled for release Aug. 17.Burger King apologizes to Blige over controversial TV adNEW YORK Burger King is apologizing to Mary J. Blige and her fans for releasing an ad that garnered the singer serious fan backlash. The clip featured Blige soulfully singing about the fast-food chains new chicken snack wraps. It immediately went viral when it was released Monday, and some in the black community said it was stereotypical. Burger King pulled the ad Tuesday over what the company said was a music licensing issue. The company explained Wednesday the spot was unfinished. In a statement, Blige said she understood why fans were upset. She said the ad didnt come across the way it was planned and she would never put out an unfinished spot. Burger King said it was released prematurely and they hope to have the final ad on the air soon.

It seems like annually the requirements to maintain your ISO change. Weve got to sort of get away from worrying about what the ISO does year to year and replace that with more of a long term strategy. Thats what Ive got Boozer working on. ISO, Insurance Services Office, is a private company that offers products and services that help customers, mainly in property/ casualty insurance industry, define, measure and manage risk. ISO also rates fire departments nationwide. A lower ISO rating could mean reduced insurance premiums for residents. Boozer has been the interim chief since the final week of February when former chief Tres Atkinson left to take a job in Dorchester County, South Carolina. Atkinson was asked to develop a county fire department in South Carolina as he had done here. Williams said no nationwide or statewide search has been initiated to find Atkinsons replacement. Were allowing Boozer, who of course was promoted from within, and were giving him an opportunity to show what he can do and if Boozer is successful, then were certainly going to give him appropriate consideration for that job permanently, he said. Boozers probation period a interim chief is six months. Boozer has been a member of CCFD since it was started in May 1, 2006, when Atkinson was hired. Boozer also worked for a number of years as a firefighter with the Lake City Fire Department. Were giving Boozer an opportunity to perform, Williams said. When we can we like to promote from within and so this certainly fills that need, but we have to make sure the right people are in the right positions also. The interim appointment gives us the chance to make that analysis. If this doesnt work, Boozer has a right to go to his previous position. Potential improvements to Bell Road, a road that runs parallel to I-10, were also discussed. Even before I got here it was recognized as an area of opportunity and one that everybody seems to think holds a good deal of promise, said Quillen, who has been director since December. Quillen said the EDAB plans to straighten and pave the road in hopes of making development of the area more likely. Planning on improvements has begun, though no construction is expected to take place until 2014. Florida Power and Light representative Jeff Simmons made a motion for the EDAB to co-host an educational seminar for elected and appointed officials in early June. The event would be funded by FPL. The board approved the motion. Simmons said FPL is looking to have the seminar co-hosted by North Florida Economic Development Partnership and Florida Gateway College alongside FPL and EDAB. this year, she said. School zones signs were added as a shortterm solution, but this project is a long-term safety solution, she said. Normally these types of improvements would be the citys responsibility. In 2009 Niblack and Westside elementary schools had school zone improvements with money from the federal program, she said. From staff reportsSuwannee Forestry Center wildland firefighters have responded to 118 wildfires that impacted 525 acres in the region during the first three months of 2012. Florida Forestry Service officials said 40 percent of the fires began as trash fires that got away. According to Florida Forest Service reports, in 2011 there were a total of 207 fires impacting 770 acres in the six-county region that encompasses Baker, Bradford, Columbia, Hamilton, Suwannee and Union counties. Even though parts of the district received heavy rain last weekend, the drought continues in our area, said Kurt Wisner, Florida Forest Service mitigation specialist and public information officer. Generally, the six-county area receives 12 inches of rain during the first quarter of the year. However, in 2012, the area has only received 6 inches of rainfall. The areas that did receive heavy rain only have shortterm relief. The rains were followed by high temperatures and low humidity, causing evaporation of surface moisture, Wisner said. Added to that, plants and trees are drinking up all the moisture they can reach, which takes it from the ground. Until we start to get steady periods of rain, which usually begins in June, we will continue to have conditions which are conducive to extreme wildfire. The National Interagency Fire Center forecasts the weather, low fuel moisture, and drought conditions in the area that combine to create above-normal significant fire potential across southern Georgia and Florida at least through May. Florida Forest Service officials urge residents to check with duty officers at (386) 758-5700 to get the latest information on fire weather conditions before they light any fires. Suwannee Forestry Center fire activity breakdown from Jan. 1 April 1: Baker County 17 fires impacting 303 acres; Bradford County 16 fires impacting 19 acres; Columbia County 24 fires impacting 61 acres; Hamilton County 18 fires impacting 37 acres; Suwannee County 33 fires impacting 74 acres; and Union County nine fires impacting 31 acres.Despite rain drought, fire persist By CARLA K. JOHNSONAssociated PressCHICAGO U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday that the Justice Department will respond appropriately to a federal appellate judge in Texas who demanded a letter recognizing federal courts authority to strike down laws passed by Congress. Holder spoke a day after 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Jerry Smith questioned President Barack Obamas remarks this week about an unelected court possibly striking down the presidents health care overhaul. Smith, during oral arguments in a separate challenge to the health law, asked the Justice Department for a three-page, single-spaced letter affirming the federal courts authority. When asked during a Wednesday news conference in Chicago what an appropriate response to Smith would be, Holder said, I think what the president said a couple of days ago was appropriate. He indicated that we obviously respect the decisions that courts make. Under our system of government ... courts have the final say on the constitutionality of statutes, Holder said. The courts are also fairly deferential when it comes to overturning statutes that the duly elected representatives of the people, Congress, pass. The White House, meanwhile, struggled for a third day to explain Obamas original remark that a Supreme Court reversal of the case would be unprecedented.Subscribe to the Lake City Reporter 755-5445 Holder: Justice Department will respond to Federal judgeASSOCIATED PRESSAttorney General Eric Holder speaks at the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention in Washington.
D espite what my husband and chil-dren may tell you, I am not what youd call hard to please. But I do have a love-hate rela-tionship with one thing: My hair. I wish you could see it. What do I love about it? It grows fast. What do I hate about it? Everything else. Recently, for reasons I dont understand, I decided to have it cut. Again. As if the last time I did so were not enough to teach me to leave bad enough alone. For the record, I do not blame the hairdresser. It was not her intention to make me look like a pineapple. No one is to blame for that but me and my hair. A bit of history. One of my earliest memories recalls red, tangled curls that kinked and snarled as my mother tried her best to brush them out. Ive seen briar patches, she would mutter, that werent as hard to rake as your head. One Sunday, my granddad, an occasional Baptist preacher, had me stand in church to illustrate his sermon on how a womans hair is her crowning glory. I didnt know what glory meant, so I asked my mother. It means your granddaddys crazy about long hair, she said, but he doesnt have to comb it. The next day she got her friend Kitty to cut my hair in a pixie. When she finished, Kitty handed me a mirror and said, You look like a TV star! She was right. I looked just like Howdy Doody. Well, said my mother, itll be easier to comb. My sister offered to make me a sign saying, I am a girl. Dont worry, honey, Kitty said. Itll grow out. When my granddad saw it, he bawled like a branded calf. But at least he didnt make me stand up in church anymore. Just as Kitty predicted, my hair grew out. Id wear it long until I grew tired of it, then Id cut it short and let it grow long again. Long or short, Ive never been content. Years ago, for Mothers Day, my daughter gave me a collage of photos showing me with her and her brothers over the years. In every photo, my hair was a different length, a different style and a different color. It looked like an ad for cheap wigs. Family and friends have gotten used to the frequent changes. But it can be a bit disconcerting to readers who are accustomed to how I look in whichever column mug (there are several) that appears in their paper. When I show up to speak in their areas they want to know who I am, and what did I do with that woman whose photo they see in their papers. Some women make peace with their hair, let it go gray, give up blow-drying and hot-rolling and flat-ironing, and find far better things to do with their time. I admire those women a lot.Ive had friends whove lost their hair due to cancer treat ment or other health-related reasons. They wear a hat and a big smile and look great. When I think of them, my heart swells with pride and I tell myself to quit complaining and be thankful for what Ive got. B ack in 1965, in the days of the Great Society, when all things seemed pos-sible with enough federal money, the government began underwriting student loans. On paper, it was -and, when properly overseen, still is -a good idea: Students who otherwise couldnt afford to attend college could do so on low-interest government loans and repay them with the earn-ings from the presumably more lucrative jobs to which a col-lege degree gave them access. The popular program grew -and grew and grew and now student loan debt, in figures calculated last year, is over $1 trillion, more than Americans owe on their cars and credit cards. The amount is likely to be significantly higher when the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recalculates the debt this summer. The average loan debt is $25,000, up 25 percent in 10 years; more than 80 percent of those loans are government guaranteed, meaning taxpayers are on the hook for the money. A vicious circle is at work. College graduates, unable to find work or unable to find work well-paid enough for them to repay their loans, are return-ing to college, incurring even more debt. And theres another vicious circle at work. Tuition increas-es typically outpace inflation, making the cost of college ever higher in real terms. Some crit-ics attribute these increases to the easy availability of federally backed loans. Theyre easier to get than to repay. Federal Reserve figures show that nearly a third of student borrowers who have begun trying to repay their loans are delinquent on their payments. And its not just young people starting out. The Fed says Americans 60 and older still owe $36 billion for their student loans. One hopes the situation isnt as dire as Tom Raum of the Associated Press paints it: This debt explosion jeop-ardizes the fragile recovery, increases the burden on taxpay-ers and possibly sets the stage for a new economic crisis. But it wouldnt be the first time Americans were blind sided by financial disasters for which they were forewarned, the housing bubble and the dot-com bubble, to name two of recent memory. And as far back as the early 70s, analysts were warning that under funded public employee pen sion funds were promising far more benefits than they could deliver. Once a loan is delinquent, the government can bring its vast collection powers to bear, garnishing wages, tax refunds and Social Security benefits. And student loans cannot be discharged through bankrupt-cy, a protection Congress also extended to private lenders in 2005. The problem for the larger economy is that debt-burdened young people postpone such economically vital activities as getting married, and buying and furnishing a home. If theres a frugality lesson here, it is being ignored. Parents are increasingly going into debt to send their chil-dren, as young as kindergarten age, to pricey private schools. According to the National Association of Independent Schools, the median tuition for private high school seniors is $24,240. Studentloan debtmay benext crisis ONE OPINION ANOTHER VIEW T hey are definitely not cheering for it, but some conserva-tives and libertar-ians I ordinarily respect are saying oh, ho hum, it is no big deal if President Barack Obama gets re-elected because -listen up, worriers -we have separation of powers. We have divided government. Both houses of Congress are likely to be Republican after Novembers election, and they will keep this guy in check. Excuse me, but have these fine folks paid any attention whatsoever to the past century or so of American history, to the gradually, then dramatically growing power of the execu-tive? Do they know how administrative agencies are now virtual dictators of much of American life and how a particularly controversial guy can be snuck into bossing one around when Congress is out of Washington? Have they heard of the veto, and how there is little way Republicans can stymie tyran-nical acts big and small unless they have numbers no single election will ever give them? Have they noticed the way in which Obama himself has come increasingly to think of Congress as a bother to be casually swatted away? I dont say this as a Republican lover. Again and again, I get emails that start off, All you Republicans ... and I want to shout back, Not guilty! To me, the Republicans are the lesser of two evils and on occasion have been the greater. But minus a Republican president, what will happen when the Supreme Court has a couple of vacan-cies? Obama may not be able to squeeze leftist deconstruction ists onto the court, but after all the banging, jousting and grandstanding are done, we will have new, unmistakably progressive justices in a posi tion to someday help take this country down the road to a more Europeanized, over regulated, liberty-shrinking society. And treaties? The Senate has to confirm them, but presidents negotiate and have understandings with other countries outside treaties, and we right now have an admin istration that is making jokes about how Republican presi dential candidate Mitt Romney thinks we are still in a cold war with Russia. Give these leaders of ours high grades for a cute riposte, but ask them if they know that in December, Russian leader Vladimir Putin boasted, We are the largest nuclear power. Find out whether they know he did this in the context of saying that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was manipulating Russian elections and that he would not let her Russian co-conspirators get away with it. What do these enlightened ones make of that? Obamas way of dealing with Putin and his puppets has been to give them just about whatev er they want. Russia is good at taking, but always wants more and seldom gives. The worst of it is the Russian refusal to support sufficiently tough sanctions to keep Iran from developing nuclear bombs. The short of it is that it makes a ton of difference whether Obama gets a second term or not. He is increasingly authoritarian in a country that increasingly allows that to hap pen.

BY E-MAIL: email@example.com F or someone who once taught classes at a law school, President Obama doesnt seem to know much about the powers of the Supreme Court. At a press conference Monday, Mr. Obama said he did not think the high court would rule that forc ing Americans to buy health insurance was unconstitution al. Ultimately, I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong major ity of a democratically elected Congress, he said. Theres plenty of prec edent for voiding a law like Obamacare. The top justices have invalidated more than 150 federal laws in part or in whole. Nor would there be anything extraordinary about such a step, as courts fre quently make these types of rulings. Theres also no truth to the suggestion that Obamacare passed by a strong majority. The vote was 219 to 212, a razor-thin margin in which 34 members of the presidents own party voted no. The margin of passage has never been a factor in the Supreme Courts review of any law. Thats simply not a part of American jurisprudence. If Mr. Obama thinks the Supreme Court is out of line overturning laws passed by large majorities, he should tell us whether he supports the courts decision in the 1954 case Bolling v. Sharpe, which overturned the act of June 22, 1874, that segregated District of Columbia schools. He should be actively campaign ing to reverse the Supreme Courts 1990 ruling against the Flag Protection Act, which passed the House 380-38. Mr. Obama proves that you dont have to be a constitu tional scholar to be president. But it would help.

SteinIve always loved being a jock. Ever since I was a kid, whenever there was a game, I was in. On and off the eld, I was a winner. My two teenagers had trouble keeping up with me. In the bedroom with my wife, I always stood tall, ready, willing and able to go two or three times a night. Yeah, I was the typical All-American guy in his prime. A Turn For The WorseBut suddenly, everything changed. I didnt feel the same anymore. Id come home from work with almost no energy. Instead of playing sports, I was reduced to watching it on TV. And then Id fall asleep before the game was even half over!A Flop In The Bedroom My sex life completely tanked. I al ways prided myself on being like the Energizer Bunny. But night after night, I was coming up soft when it counted the most. But the strangest thing was that sex didnt even seem to be that important to me anymore. I told myself it was a passing phase. It wasnt. I turned irritable, moody, and depressed. My positive outlook on life vanished into thin air! I wasnt the same guy at the of ce. It was hard to concentrate and focus. I worried that I could lose my job.A Sad SightI barely recognized my face in the mirror. My body, once so trim and muscular, was abby. I had a big pot belly. And my thick, lustrous hair was now whisper-thin and I was getting "man breasts"!Over The Hill At 42? My friends joked that I was now a member of the over-the-hill club. They accepted it and said I should too. But thats not me. I wanted my manhood back again.What The Heck Is Andropause?So I went to see my doctor. He told me I was suffering from Andropause (AKA 'man-o-pause') What the heck is that? I asked. Its often called male menopause. But thats a myth, right? WRONG! Turns out, for men over 40, 'man-o-pause' is all too real.Low T Can Destroy Your Health!My doctor said 'man-o-pause' is caused by dwindling levels of testosterone (Low-T) in your body. And if youre over 40, theres a good chance you're dealing with it right now. In fact, its estimated 25-million men have it and dont even realize it. Yikes! Day by day 'man-o-pause' r obs you of energy, mental sharpness, and your sexual thunder. Even worse, it can lead to a weak immune system, brittle bones, and even heart problems.Finally, The SolutionTurns out, I just didnt have enough T in my tank. I was scared that Id never get my life back again. Fortunately, my doctor told me about a safe, effective new remedy that powers up testosterone levels and turns tired-out men into their old selves again. Testalex Plus is a proprietary, all-natural super-formula thats scienti cally engineered to boost testosterone, increase energy, burn away excess fat, and in ame those lost feelings of lust and desire.

Opened a bottle of Testalex Plus, and the rest is history.Like Rocket-Fuel For Your ManhoodAlmost instantly, I felt a surge of energy. My mood brightened and I felt happy again. I slept like a baby and, in the morning, I bounded out of bed, happy and rarin to face the day ahead! I dropped 15 pounds in the blink of an eye and my fat turn into solid muscle. My mind was like a steel trap. I could focus again! I honestly think Testalex Plus helped me get a big promotion that I never thought Id get otherwise. Best of all, I exuded selfcon dence. My size, sensitivity and stamina were beyond belief. And my sex life was once again off the charts. Just ask my wife!Scienti callyEngineered Super-Formula So whats the secret behind my amazing transformation?

Not Any More!"How I Got My Mojo Back In 2-Weeks!"Ex-Jock Reveals Secret to Beating Man-o-Pause By DAVID ESPOAssociated PressWASHINGTON Mitt Romney unleashed a strong attack on President Barack Obamas truthfulness Wednesday, accusing him of running a hide-andseek re-election campaign designed to distract voters from his first-term record while denying them information about his plans for a second. Addressing an audience of newspaper editors and publishers, Romney said Obamas recent remarks to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on a secondterm arms reduction treaty had called his candor into question. Romney, the likely GOP opponent for Obama in November, also accused the president of undergoing a series of election-year conversions on taxes, government regulation and energy production. He does not want to share his real plans before the election, either with the public or with the press, Romney said. By flexibility, he means that what the American public doesnt know wont hurt him. He is intent on hiding. You and I will have to do the seeking. Romney himself has been sharply criticized by Rick Santorum and other Republican rivals for changing his own positions on issues ranging from abortion to climate control as part of an attempt to win the backing of conservative primary voters. Earlier this year, he reversed course on the minimum wage to bring his stance in line with party orthodoxy, saying he no longer believes it should rise along with inflation. Romney spoke to the Newspaper Association of America and the American Society of Newspaper Editors as the Republican nominee-inwaiting, his standing confirmed by three primary victories Tuesday night in Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington, D.C. The former Massachusetts governor holds a commanding lead in delegates to the Republican National Convention and is on a pace to clinch the partys top prize by the end of the primary season in June. Responding to a ques tion, he declined to say if he would support proposed legislation to protect confidential sources that journalists often rely on. Do I see a role for confidential sources? Yes. Do I ever see a time when a confidential source would have to be revealed? Yeah, I can see that, too, he said. And while he joked about sharing the rigors of campaign travel with reporters, he also took a mild swipe at some of the practices they employ. Frankly, in some of the new media, I find myself missing the presence of editors who exercise quality control. I miss the days of two or more sources for a story when at least one source was actually named, he said. Romney: Obama running hide-and-seek campaignASSOCIATED PRESSRepublican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney speaks at the Newspapers Association of America/ American Society of News Editors luncheon gathering in Washington, on Wednesday.Santorum says GOP contest only at halftimeBy BETH FOUHYAssociated PressMARS, Pa. Republican Rick Santorum said Tuesday night his presidential campaign would continue despite triple losses to rival Mitt Romney in primaries in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia. There are no marching bands. Were hitting the field. The clock starts tonight, Santorum told a sparsely attended elec tion night party outside Pittsburgh. He had three campaign events scheduled across Pennsylvania on Wednesday. Santorum said the GOP contest had only reached halftime, with half of the 1,144 delegates needed for the nomination having been selected. However, The Associated Press count of delegates showed Romney leading the race for delegates with at least 646 delegates. Santorum had just 272. Santorum predicted victory in Pennsylvanias primary on April 24. He represented the state in the House and Senate for 16 years but lost his 2006 Senate race in a landslide. Santorums defiance did little to mask his poor showing Tuesday, particularly in Wisconsin, where he campaigned heavily for several days and where an allied independent group spent nearly $900,000 on televi sion ads. Santorums effort to target Midwestern industrial states like Wisconsin has consistently fallen short despite his effort to paint Romney as a plutocrat out of touch with the concerns of workers.Romneys primary sweep lead insurmountableBy STEPHEN OHLEMACHERAssociated PressWASHINGTON Mitt Romney won nearly all the convention delegates a three-primary sweep, adding to a lead that will be insurmountable without a dramatic shift in the race for the Republican nomination for president. With 95 delegates at stake Tuesday, the former Massachusetts governor picked up 86 delegates in Maryland, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. His chief rival, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, won the other nine delegates, all in Wisconsin. Tuesdays contests marked the midway point in the race for convention delegates. Romney has 658 delegates, including endorsements from members of the Republican National Committee who automati cally attend the August convention in Tampa, Fla., and can support any candidate they choose.
By R. ALONSO-ZALDIVARAssociated PressWASHINGTON Old checklist for doctors: order that test, write that prescription. New checklist for doctors: first ask yourself if the patient really needs it. Nine medical societies representing nearly 375,000 physicians are challenging the widely held perception that more health care is better, releasing lists Wednesday of tests and treatments their members should no longer automatically order. The 45 items listed include most repeat colonoscopies within 10 years of a first such test, early imaging for most back pain, brain scans for patients who fainted but didnt have seizures, and antibiotics for mildto-moderate sinus distress. Also on the list: heart imaging stress tests for patients without coronary symptoms. And a particularly sobering recommendation calls for cancer doctors to stop treating tumors in end-stage patients who have not responded to multiple therapies and are ineligible for experimental treatments. Dr. Christine Cassel, president of the American Board of Internal Medicine, said the goal is to reduce wasteful spending without harming patients. She suggested some may benefit by avoiding known risks associated with medical tests, such as exposure to radiation. We all know there is overuse and waste in the system, so lets have the doctors take responsibility for that and look at the things that are overused, said Cassel. Were doing this because we think we dont need to ration health care if we get rid of waste. Her group sets standards and oversees board certification for many medical specialties. The recommendations come at a time when American health care is undergoing farreaching changes. No matter what the Supreme Court decides on President Barack Obamas health overhaul, employers, lawmakers, insurers and many doctors are questioning how the United States spends far more on medical care than any other economically advanced country and still produces mediocre results overall. Until now, the health care system has rewarded doctors for volume. Now the focus is shifting to paying for results and coordination. That explains the urgency for doctors themselves to identify areas of questionable spending. Its unclear how much money would be saved if doctors followed the 45 recommendations rigorously. Probably tens of billions of dollars, and maybe hundreds of billions over time. That would help, but come nowhere near solving, the problem of high health care costs. The nations medical bill hit $2.6 trillion in 2010. A major quandary for cost-cutters is that most of the spending is attributable to a relatively small share of very sick people. Just 5 percent of patients accounted for half the total costs among privately insured people, according to a recent study from the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics. Dr. James Fasules of the American College of Cardiology said the goal is to begin changing attitudes among patients and doctors. We kind of have a general feeling that if you dont get a test, you havent been cared for well, said Fasules. That has permeated American culture now. The new advice isnt meant to override a doctors judgment, Fasules added, but to inform and support decisions. The recommendations will be circulated to consumers and doctors by a coalition calling itself Choosing Wisely, which includes employer groups, unions, AARP and Consumer Reports. Neither the insurance industry nor the federal government was involved in process. Each of the nine medical societies submitted five tests or treatments they viewed as overused. Their work was coordinated by a foundation thats an offshoot of Cassels group. Eight other medical societies are developing additional recommendations, Cassel said. The medical societies dont have any power of enforcement, and fear of malpractice lawsuits may well prompt many doctors to keep ordering as many tests as ever. Insurers will certainly take a close look at the recommendations, but what they do may be limited. Thats because most of the questionable tests and treatments in the lists dont particularly stand out in the avalanche of bills processed daily by insurance companies.By STEPHANIE NANOAssociated PressNEW YORK For years, women have been urged to get screened for breast cancer because the earlier its found, the better. Now researchers are reporting more evidence suggesting thats not always the case. A study in Norway estimates that between 15 and 25 percent of breast cancers found by mammograms wouldnt have caused any problems during a womans lifetime, but these tumors were being treated anyway. Once detected, early tumors are surgically removed and sometimes treated with radiation or chemotherapy because theres no certain way to figure out which ones may be dangerous and which are harmless. When you look for cancer early and you look really hard, you find forms that are ultimately never going to bother the patient, said Dr. H. Gilbert Welch of the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, who was not part of the research. Its a side effect of early diagnosis. The study is the latest to explore overdiagnosis from routine mammograms finding tumors that grow so slowly or not at all and that would not have caused symptoms or death. Previous estimates of the problem have varied. The researchers took advantage of the staggered decade-long introduction of a screening program in Norway, starting in 1996. That allowed them to compare the number of breast cancers in counties where screening was offered with those in areas that didnt yet have the program. Their analysis also included a decade before mammograms were offered. They estimated that for every 2,500 women offered screening, one death from breast cancer will be prevented but six to 10 women will be overdiagnosed and treated. Study leader Dr. Mette Kalager and other experts said women need to be better informed about the possibility that mammograms can pick up cancers that will never be life-threatening when they consider getting screened.

Study: Some early breast cancer overdiagnosedHerbal tea for your healthDear Readers, The most wonderful thing about our planet is that it grows good medicine. Making herbal teas is one of my secret passions. You can drink teas, and in some cases apply them to your skin. Ive been playing with herbs for years, its fun and I honestly think its a wonderful adjunct to your other medical treatments. Here are the basics. Use 1 tablespoon of herbs per cup of water. Consider brew time, you will lose some health benefits over brewing certain herbs. An infusion is best when using delicate parts of the plant, like the leaves, flowers and aromatic aerial portions (Im thinking rose petals or wood betony). Infusing means you steep the herbs in hot water for 20 to 30 minutes, as opposed to simmering them. Some herbs take a cold water infusion versus boiled water. Roots, bark or seeds are tougher parts of the plant and therefore, require a decoction. You simmer them for 20 to 45 minutes in gently boiling water. Experiment with combinations of various herbs to find the best taste and physiological effect. Herbs are medicine so research what you learn today, make sure they are safe for you. Its amazing that some herbal teas improve heart rhythm, reduce blood pressure, clear brain fog or ease hormonal concerns. Most herbal teas are safe for people with kidney stones. My favorite book on teas is Rosemary Gladstars Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health. Health food stores sell herbs, or look online, or google herbal apothecary. I insist on organic herbs. Heres a recipe for Tummy Tea. I make this in bulk so 1 part equals one cup. Mix all the herbs together in a big container. When you actually make the tea, put one tablespoon (total herb) per 1 cup of hot water. You can make a few cups at a time, and store in the fridge. 1 part MintProvides awesome flavor, plus its carminitive, meaning its high in volatile oils which soothe the digestive tract; may help with gas and nausea. This is a bitter herb, so it is stimulates bile secretion. 1 part FennelA warming herb good for bloating, gas and liver support. It may relieve intestinal spasms and inflammation. Stimulates milk secretion in nursing moms. 1/2 part MeadowsweetA fabulous pain reliever, it contains salicylic acid (related to aspirin); this has anti-rheumatic and anti-inflammatory properties and may relieve nausea. 1/2 part ChamomileSo strong that one of its extracts apigenin helps with pancreatitis. It relieves intestinal inflammation, improves spasms while inducing a sense of calm. 1/4 part Marshmallow rootThis is a demulcent so it adds moisture to the mucus membranes. It is cooling, and soothing to the mouth, esophagus and digestive tract; great for people with heartburn. 1/4 part CalendulaOffers lymph support, this antiinflammatory, antispasmodic herb acts as an astringent and anti-fungal for the body. May help with leaky gut and irritable bowel. DEAR PHARMACIST SUZY COHEN New effort by MDs to cut wasteful spending
By MIKE IVESAssociated PressHANOI, Vietnam Nguyen Huong Giang loves to party but loathes hang overs, so she ends her whis key benders by tossing back shots of rhino horn ground with water on a special ceram ic plate. Her father gave her the 4-inch (10-centimeter) brown horn as a gift, claiming it cures everything from head aches to cancer. Vietnam has become so obsessed with the fingernail-like substance it now sells for more than cocaine. I dont know how much it costs, said Giang, 24, after showing off the horn in her high-rise apartment overlook ing the capital, Hanoi. I only know its expensive. Experts say Vietnams surging demand is threaten ing to wipe out the worlds remaining rhinoceros popula tions, which recovered from the brink of extinction after the 1970s thanks to conserva tion campaigns. Illegal kill ings in Africa hit the highest recorded level in 2011 and are expected to worsen this year. This week South Africa called for renewed cooper ation with Vietnam after a shocking number of rhinos have already been reported dead this year. China has long valued rhino horn for its purport ed though unproven medicinal properties, but U.S. officials and interna tional wildlife experts now say Vietnams recent intense craving, blamed partly on a widespread rumor that rhino horn cures cancer, is putting unprecedented pressure on the worlds estimated 28,000 remaining animals, mainly in South Africa. Its a very dire situa tion, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe said by telephone. We have very little cushion for these populations in the wild. Although data on the glob al rhino horn trade is scarce, poaching in Africa has soared in the past two years, with American officials saying China and Vietnam are driv ing the trade that has no sig nificant end market in the United States. Wildlife advocates say that over the last decade, rhino horn has become a must-have luxury item for some Vietnamese nouveau riche, alongside Gucci bags and Maybach cars. Between 2006 and 2008, three diplomats at the Vietnamese Embassy in Pretoria were linked to embarrassing rhino traf ficking scandals includ ing one caught on tape. In February, U.S. agents busted an alleged interstate rhino horn trafficking syndicate with Vietnamese-American ringleaders. A court affidavit obtained by The Associated Press alleges one of those arrested in the U.S. case, Felix Kha, traveled to China 12 times between 2004 and 2011 and went to Vietnam five times last year. There are still horns going into China, but Vietnam is driving the increase in poach ing for horns, said Chris R. Shepherd, deputy regional director for Southeast Asia at the wildlife advocacy group TRAFFIC. Vietnamese authorities really need to step up their efforts to find out who is behind horn traffick ing ... and put them out of business. The rhino horn craze offers bigger payoffs than other exotic wildlife products such as bear bile or tiger bone paste. American officials say the crushed powder fetches up to $55,000 per kilogram in Asia ($25,000 per pound) a price that can top the U.S. street value of cocaine, mak ing the hoof-like substance literally as valuable as gold. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 2012 00nnnnr0r0 0n0rnr 0nnn 0n !:## Get Your JAM Tickets at S&S!

By MARILYNN MARCHIONEAssociated PressCHICAGO Provocative new research might help explain why black women are so much more likely than whites to develop and die from cervical cancer: They seem to have more trouble clearing HPV, the virus that causes the dis ease. Doctors have long thought that less access to screening and follow-up health care were the reasons black women are 40 percent more likely to develop cervical cancer and twice as likely to die from it. The new study involv ing young college women suggests there might be a biological explanation for the racial disparity, too. If further study confirms this novel finding, it would make the HPV vaccine even more important for black women, said Worta McCaskill-Stevens, a pre vention specialist at the National Cancer Institute. The vaccine is recommend ed for all girls starting at age 11. The study was present ed Sunday at an American Association for Cancer Research conference in Chicago. Certain strains of HPV, the human papillomavirus, cause cervical cancer, but brief infections are very common in young women. They usually go away on their own within a year or so and only pose a cancer risk when they last long-term. Researchers at the University of South Carolina in Columbia studied 326 white and 113 black students taking part in a wider federal health study. All were given Pap tests lab exams of cells scraped from the cervix and HPV tests every six months throughout their years in school. Although the groups were similar in how many new HPV infections were detected and risk factors such as how many sex part ners they had, doctors saw striking differences in how long their infections lasted. At any checkup, blacks were 1.5 times more likely to test positive for infection with one of the HPV strains that raise cancer risk, said study leader Kim Creek. The African-American women werent clearing the virus as fast. They were actually holding onto it about six months longer, for 18 months versus 12 months for whites, he said. Ten percent of blacks had abnormal Pap tests versus 6 percent of whites. Two years after initial infections were found, 56 percent of black women were still infected but only 24 percent of whites remained infected. The governments National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities sponsored the study. Creek is a paid speaker for Merck & Co., one of the makers of HPV vaccines. The results are pro vocative and need valida tion in a study that looks beyond this one region, said McCaskill-Stevens of the cancer institute. Vietnam craves rhino horn; costs more than cocaineASSOCIATED PRESSThree African rhinoceroses eat grass at a private z oo of Bao Son Paradise Park in Hanoi, Vietnam, which has 24-hour secu rity to protect against potential poachers. Wildlife conserv ation ists warn that Vietnams surging demand for rhino h orn, which is believed to treat everything from hangovers to c ancer, is threatening to wipe out the worlds remaining rhino popu lations. Black women have trouble clearing cervical cancer virusBy R. ALONSO-ZALDIVARAssociated PressWASHINGTON The individual insurance require ment that the Supreme Court is reviewing isnt the first fed eral mandate involving health care. Theres a Medicare payroll tax on workers and employ ers, for example, and a require ment that hospitals provide free emergency services to indigents. Health care is full of government dictates, some arguably more intrusive than President Barack Obamas overhaul law. Its a wrinkle that has caught the attention of the justices. Most of the mandates apply to providers such as hospitals and insurers. For example, a 1990s law requires health plans to cover at least a 48-hour hospital stay for new mothers and their babies. Such require ments protect some consum ers while indirectly raising costs for others. One mandate affects just about everybody: Workers must pay a tax to finance Medicare, which collects about $200 billion a year. Its right on your W-2 form, line 6, Medicare tax with held. Workers must pay it even if they dont have health insurance. Employees of a company get to split the tax with their employer. The self-employed owe the full amount, 2.9 percent of earnings. Lindsey Donner, a smallbusiness owner from San Diego, pays the Medicare tax although she and her hus band are uninsured. Donner, 27, says she doesnt see much difference between the man date that workers help finance Medicare and the health care laws requirement that nearly everyone has to have some sort of health insurance. My understanding of what is going on in the Supreme Court is that it seems to be something of a semantics issue, she said. Ultimately, I dont see the big difference. If I am paying for Medicare, why cant I also be paying into something that would help me right now or in five years if I want to have children? Donner is a copy writer for businesses; her husband spe cializes in graphics design. In the past they had a health plan with a high deductible, but they found they were paying monthly premiums for insur ance they never used some thing she said they couldnt afford on a tight budget. Under the law, people such as Donner and her husband would have to get insurance or pay a fine. But they may quali fy for federal subsidies to help pay premiums for policies that would be more comprehen sive. Preventive care would be covered with no co-payments.President Obamas insurance requirement not the only mandate

ASSOCIATED PRESSTiger Woods (left) walks across the Ben Hogan Bridge o n the 12th hole with Sean OHair (right) and Mark OMeara during a practice round for th e Masters golf tournament on Wednesday in Augusta, Ga.No lead is safe at the MastersBy DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressAUGUSTA, Ga. The seven shots Rory McIlroy took on the 10th hole last year at the Masters remain a blur. So was the rest of his final round at Augusta National, where the 22-year-old from Northern Ireland made the wrong kind of history. He started with a four-shot lead. He finished 10 shots behind after an 80, the highest closing round by a 54-hole leader in 56 years. If nothing else, it was a reminder how tenuous a lead can be in the final round. Especially at the Masters. Its a course that makes you really nervous, Geoff Ogilvy said. There is an art to playing Augusta, which explains why nearly 40 percent of the Masters have been won by eight players. For those seeking their first green jacket, let alone their first major, finishing it off can be a challenge. Greg Norman lost a record six-shot lead in 1996. Ed Sneed had a five-shot lead in 1979, and was still three shots clear with three holes remaining when he made three straight bogeys McIlroy was latest to collapse at Augusta National. MASTERS continued on 3B By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comYULEE Columbia High couldnt catch a break in the Burbank Yulee Invitational. The Tigers came home with their third loss after falling 2-1 in eight innings against host Yulee High on Wednesday. The Tigers sent ace pitcher Kellan Bailey to the mound and he had his usual performance. Bailey didnt give up an earned run in six innings of work and struck out seven batters while only giving up three hits. He walked three batters. Bailey threw great like always, Columbia head coach J.T. Clark said. We just havent hit the ball. Columbia had eight hits in the contest, but werent able to string enough of them together. The Tigers only run came in the bottom of the fifth inning with Columbia trailing 1-0. After Blaine Courson advanced to sec-ond, Ryan Thomas base hit drove in Courson to tie the contest. The Yellow Jackets first run came two innings ear-lier. Chris Murdock came in off a steal at third and throwing error at home to give Yulee a 1-0 lead. After reaching extra innings, the Yellow Jackets were able to put the game away. With two runners on, Eric Arnette hit a shot to the left-field wall for a double and scored Timmy Roszell for the games win-ning run. Hopefully this tournament will do us good look-ing back on it, Clark said. We have to come back fresh. Maybe we were a little conceited after win-ning the district last week and thats what stinks about the way the district is set up. We dont have any meaningful games for a month. Now, we just have to mature and learn to still play hard. I hope this is a lesson learned. We need to go finish strong. This team has the talent, but we need the attitude. Columbia (10-8) hosts Fort White High at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Hopefully this tournament will do us some good looking back on it. I hope this is a lesson learned. We need to go finish strong. This team has the talent, but we need the attitude.J.T. Clark, Columbia High head coach

Strasburg is getting prepared to do somethin g he never has before: be an opening-day starter.Strasburg ready for opening-day pitchBy HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressWASHINGTON When the Washington Nationals began the 2011 regular season, Stephen Strasburg was miles and miles away from his teammates and the major leagues. He was on his own in Florida, taking the baby steps required to rehabili-tate his surgically repaired right elbow, still limited to throwing on flat ground and more than a month away from being allowed to climb a mound. On Thursday, when Washington starts 2012 against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, Strasburg will get his first opening-day assignment. And he made clear he plans to throw all-out, every time, all sea-son, and not worry one bit about the limit of about 160 innings hell have because of his operation. Its out of my control. Its their decision, and I think thats the way I want it to be, because I want to go out there and pitch and give it everything I have, Strasburg said before the Nationals hosted the Boston Red Sox in their exhibition finale Tuesday. I mean, I know its going to be a little different, but at the same time, I want to be like one of the other guys. You go out there, you pitch until your stuffs not work-ing anymore, and then they take the ball out of your hands. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 amateur draft called his upcoming Game 1 assignment a huge honor. To really think where I was a year ago at this time I really couldnt ask for much more, Strasburg said, a smile creasing his face. I worked extremely hard to get back here. And the job isnt done. Ive still got a lot to learn, and its going to be that way for a while. Perhaps. He did seem to know what he was doing from the get-go, though. He made an electrifying debut for the Nationals in June 2010, striking out 14 Pittsburgh Pirates in seven innings and earning the victory. He went 5-3 with a 2.91 ERA and 92 strikeouts in 12 starts in that first taste of the majors before having the elbow problems that resulted in Tommy John surgery on Sept. 3 of that year. In five starts after returning to Washington last September, Strasburg went 1-1 with a 1.50 ERA. It gave me, like, a baseline. Finishing out the year strong, coming back, I think thats realistically something I can work off of and not really go into (this) season not knowing what to expect or not knowing how the arms going to be feeling, he said. Its going to be a lot more of a com-fortable transition than it would have been if I didnt pitch at all last year. There was some speculation this spring that some-one other than Strasburg might get Thursdays start for Washington, as a way of delaying the start of his inning count. But when Nationals manager Davey Johnson was asked Tuesday whether there ever was any doubt in his mind that Strasburg would throw the teams first official pitch of 2012, the skipper replied, No, then paused for a beat before adding: And I dont think in his mind, either.

A fairway bunker on the right comes into pla y Green is guarded by two bunkers in front. It is the only par 5 that has not yielded an albatross. (Magnolia) An uphill, slight dogleg to the left with two very deep bunkers guarding the left side some 300 yards from the tee. The green slopes severely from back to front, and a small bunker catches anything long. If an approach is long and misses the bunker, it could roll down the slope and into the trees. (Juniper) An elevated tee to a large green with three tiers, with significant slopes marking the three levels. Getting close to the hole is a challenge. The easiest pin might be front left. The hole has not been changed since 1975. (Pampas) This hole literally has come a long way, from 320 yards to 450 yards. The tee shot is through a chute of Georgia pines. The green is surrounded by five bunkers, the most around any green. (White Dogwood) Amen Corner starts here. Tee recently lengthened by 15 yards, but some pine trees have been removed on the right side. A big straight tee shot is required to get to the crest of the hill. A pond guards the green to the left and a bunker is to the back right. The safe shot is to bail out short and to the right. (Golden Bell) Among the most famous par 3 in golf, and the shortest hole at Augusta National. Club selection can range from a 6-iron to a 9-iron, but its difficult to gauge the wind. Raes Creek is in front of the shallow green, with two bunkers behind it and one in front. (Firethorn) A cluster of pines is starting to mature on the right side of the fairway, making it critical to be straight off the tee. The green can be reached in two with a good drive, but a pond guards the front and there is a bunker to the right. Even for those laying up, the third shot requires a precise wedge. (Redbud) The hole is played entirely over water and eventually bends to the left. Two bunkers guard the right side, and the green slopes significantly from right to left. (Nandina) The Eisenhower Tree to the left of the fairway is prominent at 210 yards from the tee, requiring another accurate tee shot. The green is protected by two bunkers in the front. (Holly) Now among the most demanding finishing holes in golf, this uphill dogleg right is protected off the tee by two deep bunkers at the left elbow. Trees get in the way of a drive that strays to the right. A middle iron typically is required to a green that has a bunker in front and to the right. (Flowering Peach) One of the best short par 4s in golf. Big hitters can drive the green, but not many even try because of all the trouble surrounding the L-shaped green that slopes sharply from right to left. Most players hit iron o f f tee to stay short of four bunkers on the left side. (Yellow Jasmine) An accurate drive is important to avoid the fairway bunker on the right side. The hole is uphill and features trouble left of the green. No bunkers around the green, just severe mounding. (Flowering Crab Apple) This has become a long iron for big hitters, fairway metal for others. A deep bunker protects the right side of the green, with another bunker to the left. Club selection remains crucial because of the deceptive wind. The green slopes to the front. This hole features the only palm tree on the course.

(Tea Olive) This slight dogleg right plays uphill and has a deep bunker, requiring a 317-yard carry off the tee. The bunker has a tongue on the left side, so anything that enters the front of the bunker might be blocked by the lip.

Par 4 Y ards 440 Par 4 Y ards 440 (Camelli a ) A long hole that can play shorter if the drive catches the slope in the fairway. It is difficult to save par from the bunker right of the green. The putting surface slopes from right to left. It has played as the most difficult hole in Masters history. (Carolina Cherry) The tee shot should be aimed down the right side for a good angle into the green, which features two large bunkers to the left. Any approach that is short could spin some 25 yards back into the fairway. (Chinese Fir) Only hole on the course without a bunke r Even if the drive avoids trees on both sides of the fairwa y the green has severe contours that feed the ball to the right. 1 8 9 2 1 0 4 5 6 3 16 7 17 1 5 1 4 1 3 1 1 1 8 1 2 Going for green SOURCE: Augusta National Golf Club Editors Note: It is mandatory to include all sources that accompany this graphic when repurposing or editing it for publication T iger Woods is back to winning, and is tabbed the favorite to win at Augusta.

Ken Venturi was on the verge of becoming the only amateur to win the Masters in 1956 when he blew a four-shot lead. Like McIlroy, he shot an 80. McIlroys blown lead is enough of a memory going into the Masters. Adding to the emphasis is a bad habit of 54-hole leaders failing to win this year on the PGA Tour. Kyle Stanley had a threeshot lead playing the final hole at Torrey Pines when he spun a wedge into the water and three-putted for a triple bogey, losing to Brandt Snedeker in a play off. A week later, Spencer Levin had a six-shot lead in the Phoenix Open when his game imploded on the back nine. He shot 75 and Stanley of all people rallied from eight shots behind to beat him. Charlie Wi lost a threeshot lead at Pebble Beach and Phil Mickelson won with a 64. The next week at Riviera, Mickelson and Keegan Bradley shared the 54-hole lead and both wound up losing to Bill Haas in a playoff. In 14 stroke-play events on the PGA Tour, only five players have gone on to win with at least a share of the third-round lead. With that kind of history, protecting a lead is not easy. Not even close to easy, as weve seen, Nick Faldo said. He should know. Faldo is the only player with mul tiple Masters wins who has never had the lead going into the last day. Along with his win over Norman in 1996, he came from five shots down in 1989 and three shots behind in 1990, both times winning in a playoff.
DEAR ABBY: Robert and I met four years ago and fell head-over-heels in love. At the time, he was two years clean and sober and attending meet-ings. Due to his hectic work schedule, he stopped attending the meetings. Robert is intelligent, a hard worker, handsome and my best friend. He prided himself on his sobriety, so imagine my shock when I found an empty liquor bottle bur-ied in the trash and three more under the bed. I never thought Id see the day when he would relapse, but he has. I am devastated. I didnt know what to say to him or how to react, because I have never been down this road. I told Robert I knew he was drinking again. I could barely hold back my tears because I knew what a huge personal setback this is for him. He said he didnt want to discuss it, so I didnt push. What am I supposed to do when the man I love has relapsed? My heart aches for him. Im trying to be supportive, but I am clueless. Please help. -HELPLESS DEAR HELPLESS: The first thing to do is recog-nize that this is Roberts problem, and only he can fix it. If you plan to stay involved with him, understand that it is not unusual for someone with a substance abuse problem to fall off the wagon from time to time. The next thing you should do, and this is important, is find your nearest chapter of Al-Anon. Its an organization that was started by the wife of an alcoholic, and its sole purpose is to help the fami-ly and friends of alcoholics. The toll-free phone num-ber is 888-425-2666, and it has been mentioned in this column many times. There will be meetings for you to attend so you can learn to avoid falling into the trap of trying to save or enable Robert, because in order for him to get better he must expe-rience the consequences of going back to drinking. This is not easy to do with someone you care about, and you will need all of the support you can get. By the way, your letter arrived in the same batch as the one below. It may give you some insight: DEAR ABBY: A few years ago I talked to my mother about her drinking. Shes a binge drinker and her excuse is always, Its my day off. I am focusing on myself and trying to figure out my life, as well, with the help of Al-Anon -the only thing that has kept me positive. I knew that once I uttered the word alcohol-ic aloud, my relationship with my mother would for-ever be affected. I asked her to contact me when she was ready to quit because I can no longer enable her drinking. I miss the mom who doesnt drink, but I cant be around her when she does. As I grow in my recovery, I may figure out how to do that. But for now, I need to put space between us. My family is worried something drastic will happen (as her health isnt good) and I will have regrets. But I have expressed my thoughts and accepted that Mom and I may never speak again. Is that wrong? -STILL A LOVING DAUGHTER IN WISCONSIN DEAR STILL A LOVING DAUGHTER: No, its not wrong. Your mothers binge drinking was affecting her health as well as her rela-tionship with you, and while it may have been difficult and wrenching, it was the right thing to do -for both of you. Lets hope that your strength in doing that will give her the strength to stop her alcohol binges. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Set up interviews or talk with someone who can help you cut through red tape. Knowing what you are up against will make it easy to adjust your posi-tion so you can move in a suitable direction. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Learning on the job or signing up for a course that will enable you to earn more money or meet potential employers should be your goal. Dont be shy. Its OK to let people know what you have to offer. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Protect your health, assets and emotional well-being. It will be easy to get caught in a trap if you have withheld information or made a promise you can-not keep. Fix past mistakes before moving forward. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Dont let change throw you off your game. Accept whatever comes down the pipeline and be imaginative in the way you handle matters. Your insight and originality will win you a spot in the fore-front. Make your actions count. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your heart is in the right place, and what you do and say will aid you in getting what you need to accom-plish your goals. Love is in the stars, and short trips or fraternizing with some-one you enjoy being with will bring excellent results. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Pay attention to detail in whatever you do and you will be appreciated for your originality. Dont let anyone upset your world by coercing you into an argument based on ficti-tious rumors. Stick to the truth and back away from fair-weather friends. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put your heart on the line. Keeping secrets or hiding facts will lead to sor-row. Clear the air and the changes that occur will be to your advantage. Let go of someone or something that isnt good for you. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Unpredictability sur-rounds you. Ask questions and flush out any potential threats. Dont put up with uncertainty. Make whatev-er decision is necessary to stabilize your life person-ally and professionally. Its up to you to make the first move. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotional matters will be difficult to control. Evading issues will only make your life more difficult. You are best to face whatever dilemma comes your way head-on before it spins out of con-trol. Honesty will be the best policy. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Hold your ground and keep things as stable as possible. Avoid anyone who conveys uncertainty. Gravitate toward people who have something to offer in return, not those trying to ride on your merits. Charity begins at home. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Fix up your digs and be readily available to the people who have helped you in the past. Making an effort to repay old debts will also reunite you with someone who can help you stay on the right path. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont allow emotional issues to take over, caus-ing you to miss out on an opportunity that could sta-bilize your life financially and emotionally. A change of scenery or surround-ings may do you a world of good. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
