Tri-county tourism leaders were rec-ognized Wednesday for making sure the Suwannee River Valley gets a piece of the tourism pie. The Suwannee River Valley Marketing Group, a joint marketing initia-tive between Columbia, Suwannee and Hamilton counties, awarded busi-nesses and employees during the 2012 Tourism Awards Luncheon at Camp Weed in Wellborn. The marketing group brings together resources from three counties under one umbrella, which makes money go further, said Harvey Campbell, Columbia County Tourist Development Council executive director. Visitors may go to attractions in one county and rent hotel rooms in another, he said. “Those lines don’t mean anything to people.” The counties have been working together infor-mally for 10 years, but formed the public-private marketing group four years ago, Campbell said. Community members sent in nominations and a tour-ism committee outside the area selected winners from the nomination forms, he said. “We know the important part the tourism market plays in the Suwannee Valley region,” said Ron Williams, Columbia County commissioner. It creates jobs and feeds fam-ilies, he said. Kerri Post, director of marketing for the Florida Department of State Division of Historical Resources, gave a key-note address on the state’s campaign to celebrate the 500th anniversary of Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon’s landing in Florida. The explorer landed in Florida in 1513, 94 years before the first English settlement. “No other state in America can claim 500 years,” she said. Viva Florida 500 is a statewide initiative in 2013 Tourism awardscelebratetri-countypartnership TOURISM continued on 3A By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comMore than 50 people, many of them Lake City VA Medical Center employees, took advan-tage of an opportunity to help homeless veterans and get exercise during the Lake City VA Medical Center’s inaugural VA2K event Wednesday. The event took place Wednesday morning from 11:30 a.m. 12:30 p.m. at the facility with partici-pants walking or using a wheelchair to promote health and wellness. Lynn Schmidt, a registered dietitian and the facil-ity’s MOVE and Wellness coordinator, said the event was a wellness event for VA employees to promote exercise in improving their health. She said the event was also used as an oppor-tunity to collect donations for homeless veterans in the area. “As the need arises our homeless coordinators will pass out the donations to our veterans as they are moving out into the com-munity,” she said. Many participants walked on the VA side-walks while others just contributed donations including boxes of toiletry items, food, clothing, soap and household items. “I felt it was important to participate in the event for a couple of reasons,” said Jason Williams, who walked several laps. “It’s supporting the homeless veterans and it just gets people excited about get-ting out and exercising.” The event called for participants to walk or roll for 30 minutes or 1.2 miles. “It’s always good to participate in exercise and cardiovascular health,” said Sarah Anderson, who also walked several laps. “I’m an ICU nurse educa-tor so I try to get people involved in exercise and help in wellness, so I’m out here promoting that.” Judy Collier, a volunteer with the Marine Corps League Auxiliary, was one of several volunteers who handed out water and gave promotional items to par-ticipants. “I felt it was important to participate because it’s helping the homeless vet-erans, and we feel we need to help the veterans when we can,” she said, noting eight volunteers from the organization participated in Wednesday’s event. The 2K events were held at several VA facili-ties across the country on Wednesday as part of National Employee Health and Fitness Day. Schmidt said last year was the first year VA facilities across the nation took part in the event.

This weekend the Columbia County Relay for Life group will hold its inaugural golf tourna-ment 8 a.m. Saturday at Quail Heights Country Club, 161 SW Quail Heights Terrace, as part of a fundraising effort. The event is sponsored by Save-A-Lot food stores. The entry fee is $75 per person, which includes breakfast from Krystals, lunch cooked on site by Beef O’ Brady’s and numerous door prizes. The tournament will be played in a scramble format with four-person teams. Participants not entered on a team list will be placed with others. Trophies and cash prizes for the top teams will be awarded. “We will be having a World Long Drive finalist doing demonstra-tions, as well as a $10,000 hole-in-one sponsored by Save-A-Lot as well,” said Kim Nicholson, Relay For Life Columbia County event chair. “The goal is to raise $5,000.” The event has 15 teams and at least 20 hole sponsors and Nicholson said there is enough space to add additional teams. She said the local Relay For Life volunteer committee came up with the inaugural golf tournament fundraiser concept earlier this year as an additional fundraiser to the traditional relay event. “The biggest reason we’re having the golf tournament is we we’re trying to reach a different group of people,” Nicholson said. “We wanted to have a fun fund-raiser and be able to raise money at the same time.” To register call Nicholson at 288-2871, Quail Heights Country Club at 752-3339, or come to the golf course the morning of the event.

Wednesday: Afternoon: 5-5-1 Evening: N/A Wednesday: Afternoon: 8-3-8-7 Evening: N/A Tuesday: 4-8-17-18-26 2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAIL Y BRIEFING THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 2AWEATHER NEW YORK How can Saturday Night Live possibly replace (fill in the blank)? How many times have we asked that question across nearly four decades? Impossible! said some in 2006 when Tina Fey, Chris Parnell, Horatio Sanz and Rachel Dratch headed for the door, only to be fol lowed two years later by her friend and Weekend Update co-host Amy Poehler. But in their wake grew one of the most versa tile, multi-threat casts in SNL history, one that firmly established its own SNL era. Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis all became cast members in the 2005-2006 season, join ing a group that already included Seth Meyers, Fred Armisen and Kenan Thompson. At the time, SNL creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels pronounced them the wave of the future and Fey likened herself to a senior seeing exciting freshmen arrive. But as this latest season of the sketch insti tution comes to a close this Saturday night (with host Mick Jagger, and musical guests Arcade Fire and the Foo Fighters), theres a growing sense that another SNL class is nearing graduation. Wiig, of course, starred in and co-wrote the hit Bridesmaids, but even before that had new series for midseason: The cop drama Golden Boy, about a man who becomes New York Citys youngest police com missioner ever. Friend Me, a come dy about two buddies from Indiana who move to Los Angeles and try to make new friends. The Job, a reality show hosted by Lisa Ling about candidates who get a chance to win their dream jobs. Will Smith meets UK Olympic hopefuls LONDON Hollywood star Will Smith took time out of his promotional schedule for Men in Black III to try his hand at Olympic sports in London. Smith met Olympic hopefuls ahead of the U.K. premiere of the film later Wednesday, shoot ing hoops with team GB Basketball captain Drew Sullivan and taking pointers on the hurdle from Perry Shakes-Drayton, a hopeful for the 400m event. Triple jumper Yamile Aldama tried to teach Smith, but found that the actor was more inclined to break into dance moves. Smith praised the athleti cism of those he met, con fessing that he himself has never been really athletic. The athletes will be join ing him and his co-stars at the movie premier. New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, right, stands with Saturday Night Live cast member Kenan Thompson on the set of Saturday Night Live, in New York. Show executives are considering the possibility that the cast may be changed considerably when the new season begins in September. notable roles in Friends With Kids, Paul, Adventureland and Knocked Up, among others. She has six films in some form of develop ment, along with plenty of interest in a Bridesmaids sequel from her and her writing partner, Annie Mumolo. CBS moving Men, Mentalist for new season NEW YORK Dominant CBS shuffled its schedule for the fall on Wednesday, giving Ashton Kutcher and Simon Baker new nights and adding four new series. Two and a Half Men, where Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen as star this season, is moving from Monday to Thursday. It will be paired with The Big Bang Theory in what CBS scheduling chief Kelly Kahl said should be a super comedy block. The Mentalist, where Baker plays a brainy crime-solver, shifts from Thursday to Sundays. Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis will star in a new drama about Las Vegas that premieres in the fall, and CBS is transplanting Sherlock Holmes to Manhattan. The series CSI: Miami, Unforgettable and Rob drew cancellation notices. We had just one goal, and that is to continue mak ing hit shows, said CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler. CBS also ordered three TALLAHASSEE Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney says Connie Mack IV is his choice in Floridas GOP primary race for the U.S. Senate. Romney announced Wednesday his endorse ment of Mack, a congress man from Fort Myers, over former Sen. George LeMieux. Its rare for presiden tial candidates to thrust themselves into primary races for other offices, but Romney said Mack is a friend. In a statement, the former Massachusetts governor also said Mack is a strong conservative who would oppose the borrow and spend ways of Washington. The Republican nomi nee will face incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson in November. A spokeswoman for LeMieux declined comment. Mack said in a statement that he was humbled by Romneys endorsement and they would work together to unseat Nelson and President Barack Obama. Federal jury convicts ex-postal worker in Florida TALLAHASSEE Prosecutors say a former Florida postal worker ran in the Boston Marathon and participated in other athletic events while claim ing her back was too badly hurt to deliver the mail. A U.S. District Court jury agreed on Tuesday. Jurors convicted 55-yearold Jacquelyn V. Myers of Tallahassee of health care fraud and making false statements to collect work ers compensation. She could face up to 15 years in prison when sentenced July 25. Myers reported a lower back injury in May 2009 during the annual letter carriers food drive. She was relieved of mail car rying and put on light duty. Evidence, including photos and videos, showed she participated in more than 80 long-distance races and triathlons over the next several months. Her race times also improved after the claimed injury. Fla. drug convict may get 24-year sentence tossed MIAMI A Florida man convicted of crack cocaine offenses may get his con viction and 24-year sen tence tossed out because of false testimony and tainted evidence. Federal prosecutors and a defense attorney have recommended that the case be dismissed against 45-year-old Elroy Phillips. A Miami judge held a hear ing Wednesday but did not immediately rule. After his 2003 convic tion, Phillips began his own investigation and uncov ered that false records and untrue testimony were used against him. Evidence also was not turned over to the defense as required. In addition, Phillips found that a former West Palm Beach police officer involved in the case was at the time also using and selling illegal drugs and engaging prostitutes. If the charges are dis missed Phillips could soon be released from prison. Fla. says more than 53,000 dead on voting rolls TAMPA Florida is calling on county election supervisors to remove more than 53,000 dead peo ple from the states voting rolls. State officials this year checked Social Security files and concluded that people who died were still registered to vote. This was the first time the state checked the files. It was allowed under a contro versial election law that passed the GOP-controlled Legislature last year. An attorney with the Department of State told election supervisors on Wednesday they have seven days to remove a deceased voter from the rolls. But some supervisors want to know if they will be given more proof that the voter is dead. The move to remove dead voters comes at the same time when state offi cials are pushing to remove thousands non U.S.-citizens from the rolls. 12 students affected by rash at high school HOLLYWOOD Twelve students and two teachers who came down with a rash during class at a South Florida high school have been released from the hospital. Broward County Public Schools officials say the stu dents were all in the same classroom at McArthur High School in Hollywood on Wednesday when they started complaining about an itching rash.

TOURISM: Tri-county Continued From Page 1A From staff reports Two Columbia County Sheriffs Office captains recently graduated from the Florida Criminal Justice Institute. Capt. Bennie Coleman and Capt. David Wingate gradu ated the Chief Executive Seminar Wednesday at Florida Department of Law Enforcement headquarters in Tallahassee. The 23 seminar gradu ates represent criminal jus tice agencies around the state who serve in leader ship roles within their agen cies. The seminar met for one week each month for three months at FDLE headquar ters. Graduates took classes on topics such as futures, demography, budgeting, managing, generations, eth ics and implementing stra tegic change. The goal of the Chief Executive Seminar is to prepare Floridas criminal justice leadership for the challenging and chang ing demands of the future. Class participants study trends and events that may affect criminal justice pro fessionals and the state and develop new leadership skills to address and man age the changes ahead. The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute, established within the FDLE and affiliated with the State University System, was established in 1990 by the Florida Legislature, who recognized the need for an innovative and multifaceted approach to the education and training of criminal jus tice professionals.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Q The Washington Times Q Orange County Register OPINION Thursday, May 17, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A ANOTHER VIEW M aybe this debate over same-sex marriage is of consuming interest to only a relative handful of political and ideological partisans, if not of terribly great interest to the rest of us. A new New York Times/CBS poll shows that 62 percent of voters said that the economy and jobs were the issues most important to them, followed, distantly, by the federal budget deficit at 11 percent, health care at 9 percent -perhaps indicat-ing that the Obamacare issue is running out of steam -and same-sex marriage at 7 percent. Both of these last two, by the way, finished behind “Don’t Know,” at 10 percent. If the public was troubled at all by same-sex marriage, it was that respondents believed President Barack Obama endorsed it for transparently political reasons, and then only after Vice President Joe Biden all but forced him into it. The flap was largely of Obama’s doing. He favors a deliberate, nuanced approach to issues, especially the politically sticky ones, and his position on B ack when he was in high school, Mitt Romney joined with others in what sounds like a pretty nasty bullying episode, and that’s too bad and I hate it. I wish he were perfect from the day he was born, with abso-lutely no regrettable adolescent moments. The rest of us had none, right? Here is something I wish even more: that Obama’s hench-men would stop their bullying of American citizens today and that major media would rid them-selves of partiality and learn what is and is not important. My point is hardly that a Washington Post story about Romney leading others to forcibly cut a fellow student’s bleached-blond hair was not worth report-ing at all, perhaps even as part of an analysis looking at how he evolved into the person that it seems to me he grew up to be. Search out other biographical pieces and you will discover how Romney buoyed fellow students in graduate school. You will learn how he singlehandedly took on a drunken French rugby team to rescue two harassed women. You will see how his decisive, caring actions as head of a company may have saved the life of a partner’s endangered daughter. My own estimation is that he became self-sacrificing and even heroic over time. But this was not a deep, contextual piece, or a short article reserved for back pages. It was a tabloid-style rendering splashed across the Post’s front page. You had to read the first paragraph at least three times to believe what the writer was doing. He was telling us what was in Romney’s mind some 47 years ago, as if he were a fiction writer assuming a third-person, omniscient point of view. Of course, maybe it was fic-tion, or maybe the writer thought he was God. Reputable newspapers do not print rumors to justify a slan-derous hypothesis. The paper later more or less said it did not mean for readers to believe the rumor. Oh, now I get it. Anyway, the Times also ran the Romney bullying story on the front page a day after the Post did, playing it underneath a story about President Barack Obama finally saying he sup-ports gay marriage. I do not detect alert journalism here. I detect bias, bringing me to Stanford University professor Tim Groseclose. In his extraordinary, scientifically convincing book, “Left Turn,” he shows just how preju-diced most news outlets are. He further argues the public is influ-enced to the extent that, without left-wing bias, McCain would have won the 2008 presidential election by 56 percent of the vote to 42 percent for Barack Obama instead of losing by seven per-centage points. To get to something current, something clearly meaningful, something that tells you about the presidential candidates in the here and now, note research by the Wall Street Journal’s Kimberly Strassel, decidedly not left-wing. The columnist has observed that an Obama campaign website had “named and shamed eight private citizens who had donated to his opponent,” accusing them of hor-rible deeds like, you know, mak-ing money from the oil business. Strassel makes the point that a president has enormous power to ruin lives and that, when people act on his behalf to castigate citi-zens participating in the political system, it can be seriously threat-ening. That’s an assault on all of us, and that’s the kind of bullying that ought to be getting Page 1 attention every day until it stops or the voters have spoken. W isconsin no doubt has become the battleground state for government reform, at least as regards efforts to tame the undue political power of public employee unions. As the June 5 recall election of Republican Gov. Scott Walker nears, his campaign has much to be encouraged about while still facing a mountain of work before he can claim victory in what is shaping up to be the most important electoral con-test in 2012. Politics is a contact sport – with recalls being particu-larly combative – and with the nation’s labor movement bank-rolling the Wisconsin election, Mr. Walker has taken some bruises. Some of the latest attacks focus on the number of hours Mr. Walker devotes to governing, rather than cam-paigning to save his job, and how much blame he deserves for Wisconsin’s level of unem-ployment. A Huffington Post story by two reporters for Wisconsinwatch.org asserts that the Wisconsin governor has spent less time on guber-natorial matters than he had when he was first elected. “By January 2012,” the story states, the governor “sched-uled about 30 hours a week for state business – half as much work time as six months ear-lier.” Why would that be? Maybe Mr. Walker is spending less time in the office (so to speak) because he has been forced into running a virtually non-stop campaign by the public employee unions trying to oust him for challenging their influ-ence. Similarly, critics of Mr. Walker blame him for the state’s anemic employment outlook, as detailed in a release from the Bureau of Labor Statistics that showed Wisconsin lost the most jobs of any state between March 2011 and March 2012. Some of the worst job numbers in the state come from by far the largest city in the Badger State, Milwaukee, where Gov. Walker’s recall opponent, Democrat Tom Barrett, is mayor. Mr. Barrett lost to Mr. Walker in the 2010 gubernato-rial election. Mr. Walker can take some credit for an improving jobs picture. Since he has taken office, Wisconsin’s unemploy-ment has fallen from 7.8 per-cent to 6.9 percent. Fortunately for the Walker campaign a poll shows that voters may not be buying the arguments of the recall proponents. According to the We Ask America survey, 52 percent of likely voters favor Mr. Walker, compared with 43 preferring Mr. Barrett and 5 percent of voters undecided. In 2010, Mr. Walker bested Mr. Barrett, 52 percent to 46 percent. Campaign minutia aside, the recall election boils down to a single simple question: Should public employee unions have unmatched power within the political process? Gov. Walker has illustrated he believes they should not. We agree. Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service.

Jay AmbroseSpeaktoJay@aol.com Wisconsinshaping up to be key battle W hen word broke last week that a terrorist under-wear bomb plot had been foiled, it seemed to be an impressive American victory. The initial Associated Press report revealed a CIA informant penetrated high lev-els of al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula, made off with their most sophisticated new bomb and provided information lead-ing to a successful drone strike on a leading militant. On the heels of the anniversary of the Osama bin Laden takedown, it seemed to further burnish the Obama administration’s nation-al security credentials. Many commentators, particularly former intelligence officials, found the amount of information in the leaked story troubling. Whoever gave the goods to the press had access to a degree of detail imply-ing it must have come from a high-level insider. Suspicion grew that the leak was specifi-cally intended to promote the Obama administration’s reputa-tion. The story got worse. It seems that whoever leaked the story hyped the American con-tribution to what seems to have been a primarily British-Saudi operation. The MI6 connection was revealed in additional dis-closures that effectively com-promised and collapsed a major British intelligence operation. The House Intelligence Committee is conducting its own review before launching a full investigation. Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, Michigan Republican, believes that the leak was “some chest thumping in a political narra-tive,” and alleged it could have been coordinated at the top. “We do know that the CIA was trying to stop the story,” he said. The key data points are there for all to see. All that remains now is to connect the dots.Be wary of news comingfrom topsame-sex marriage was said to be “evolving.” But it had been evolving for nearly two years, more than enough time for his followers, and apparently even his vice president, to lose patience. The public’s position on same-sex marriage and civil unions has also been evolving, according to the poll, but not nearly fast enough for the presi-dent to wait it out. The Times/CBS poll showed support for same-sex marriage increasing to 38 percent this year, up from 22 percent in 2004. If you add in those who favor civil unions, support for some kind of formal recognition of gay couples now stands at 62 percent. The same poll showed in the race for president, Mitt Romney at 46 percent and Obama at 43 percent, the numbers well within the margin of error. USA Today/Gallup had better news for the presi-dent. While 71 percent of respondents rate economic conditions as poor, 58 percent believe conditions will be good a year from now and nearly two-thirds of respondents think they, personally, will be better off this time next year. This is important because voters are impervious to eco-nomic statistics no matter how glowing unless they viscerally feel their own job and econom-ic prospects improving. For what it’s worth, the new USA Today/Gallup polls says it’s 56 percent to 36 percent that Obama will win in November and, the paper points out, that’s a larger margin than Obama had this time four years ago over John McCain. However, as campaign tacticians are wont to point out, in presidential politics there are several lifetimes between now and November.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 Longer you stay, Less you payMonthly UnlimitedSee store for details.3(2).+!'% By GARY FINEOUTASSOCIATED PRESSTAMPA — Florida’s local election supervisors on Wednesday sounded skep-tical, and even distrustful, of a push by the state to remove thousands of poten-tial non-U.S. citizens from the voting rolls just months before the critical 2012 elections. The supervisors, meeting at their annual summer conference, peppered state election officials with ques-tions about the list of more than 2,600 people who have been identified as being in Florida legally but ineligible to vote. That list was sent to supervisors recently, but state officials have also said there may be as many as 182,000 registered voters who may not be citizens. State election officials want the state’s 67 county election offices to reach out to those on the list, deter-mine their citizenship sta-tus and remove them from the rolls if they are not U.S. citizens. But election supervisors including Democrats and Republicans asked a range of questions about the level of proof that state election officials had regarding the citizenship status of vot-ers which was culled by comparing voter registra-tion lists to a state driver’s license database. They said they wanted more infor-mation before they purge someone from the voting rolls. “I’m feeling really uncomfortable about this,” Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes told officials with the state’s Division of Elections. Brian Corley, the Pasco County elections supervi-sor, questioned the timing of the push, noting that election officials were first given a list of potential ineligible voters from the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles roughly a year ago. Corley pointed out how two voters on the depart-ment’s list given to him wound up being born in Ohio and Massachusetts. One of the names wound up on the list of non-U.S. citizens because the driv-er’s license number used to check citizenship had one number wrong on it. “We want our voter rolls to be accurate, obviously no one wants someone to vote who isn’t a citizen,” Corley said. “But at the same time we are the ones fielding phone calls from voters saying ‘Why are you questioning my citi-zenship?” Added Gertrude Walker, the St. Lucie County elec-tions supervisor: “We don’t have confidence in the validity of the information.” Gisela Salas, director of the state Division of Elections, said that the delay in giving supervi-sors the potential match list was because the state was trying to verify the infor-mation before it handed it over. Florida has asked for access to a federal data-base maintained by the Department of Homeland Security but so far the U.S. government has turned the state down. There are currently more than 11 million active regis-tered voters in the state, but a few thousand votes could make the difference in what is expected to be a tight race between President Barack Obama and GOP presumptive nominee Mitt Romney. The 2000 election between George W. Bush and Al Gore was decided by just 537 votes in the Sunshine State. Florida law requires voters to be a U.S. citizen resid-ing in the state. Florida also does not allow someone to vote if they are a convicted felon and have not had their civil rights restored. The state has been responsible for helping screen voters since 2006 when it launched a state-wide voter registration data-base. The state database is supposed to check the names of registered voters against other databases, including ones that contain the names of people who have died and people who have been sent to prison. Prior to the launch of the database, Florida had come under fire for previ-ous efforts to remove fel-ons from the voting rolls, including a purge that happened right before the 2000 presidential election. An effort to remove felons back in 2004 was halted after it was discovered that the list drawn up by the state had errors. In recent months, however, the state has pushed ahead with efforts to scrub the rolls, includ-ing asking supervisors to remove more than 53,000 dead people discovered by comparing voter rolls to federal Social Security files. This was the first time the state checked the files. It was allowed under a controversial election law that passed the GOP-controlled Legislature last year. Several supervisors pointed out they now get a packet of background infor-mation before they remove a convicted felon from the rolls. They wanted to know if the state would start pro-viding the same level of detail with both deceased voters and those deemed not to be U.S. citizens. Maria Matthews, the assistant general coun-sel for the Division of Elections, acknowledged that the state’s list may not be “foolproof” but she said that in the end it is up to local supervisors to deter-mine if a voter should be purged. “We do not make the determination, that is what you get paid for,” Matthews told supervisors. Some supervisors such as Leon County Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho recalling past attempts to remove voters said he would move slowly before purging anyone. “Caution is a good code to live by in the election world these days,” Sancho said. State officials skeptical of voter purge By JENNIFER KAYAssociated PressFORT LAUDERDALE — The ability to predict how bad a storm will be has eluded forecasters since Hurricane Andrew made a catastrophic land-fall in South Florida two decades ago and it will remain a challenge for the next chief at the National Hurricane Center, the center’s outgoing director said Wednesday. Forecasters have significantly improved their ability to predict a storm’s path, giving coastal resi-dents more time to pre-pare or get out of its way. The remaining challenge is to see day or two in advance how big a storm could be or whether a storm will rapidly intensify the way Andrew did as the hurricane approached the Bahamas and Florida in 1992, director Bill Read said. “That’s been still an area we haven’t made much gains on,” Read said. Read joined Florida’s emergency managers in Fort Lauderdale at the annual Governor’s Hurricane Conference to reexamine Andrew’s legacy. The Category 5 hurricane remains one of the most expensive natu-ral disasters ever in the United States. The important lesson Florida learned from the 1992 storm was to enforce the most stringent build-ing codes in the nation, Read said. “Y’all passed a building code that actually made sense,” said Read. “Just about anywhere else I go you have these issues of, can I stay in my house or not? That’s a tough ques-tion to answer when it’s not a well-built house.” Andrew also led to equipment upgrades for hurricane forecasters. Reconnaissance aircraft that fly into storms to collect data now carry equipment that measures microwave radiation at the sea surface 10,000 feet below. That gives fore-casters more information about how strong a storm is at that moment, James Franklin, who leads the hurricane specialist unit at the hurricane center in Miami, said in an inter-view last week. The Hurricane Forecast Improvement Project, which the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration started three years ago, is explor-ing the use of Doppler radar in forecasting a storm’s intensity, Franklin said. Protecting people who live in areas vulnerable to storm surge drives the urgency behind improving forecasters’ ability to see whether a hurricane will blow up, Franklin said. “Those things, the intensity and the size, affect storm surge, which is the hazard that has the great-est potential to cause a large loss of life,” Franklin said. As federal budgets continue to tighten, maintain-ing all the equipment that forecasters use also will be a serious challenge for the hurricane center’s next director, Read said. That equipment includes aging polar-orbit-ing satellites that offer more detailed information on moisture, temperatures and other weather data than geostationary satel-lites that provide pictures of much of the earth from higher levels. “Right now I see it as a very expensive infra-structure that it takes to be good at doing weather forecasting, and of course the hurricanes,” Read said. “Having the fund-ing to maintain that and expand the capability is a challenge.” Read steps down June 1, the start of the six-month Atlantic hurricane season. After four years as head of the hurricane center, Read says he’s looking forward to making weather fore-casting a hobby instead of a full-time job. The man who repeatedly urges coastal residents to have evacuation plans ahead of storms and to stock up on food and water in case of post-storm emer-gencies won’t be leaving behind his storm prepara-tion habits, though. Read Conference views Andrew’s legacy will return to his home in Galveston County on the Texas coast — an area vul-nerable to hurricanes. In 1900, Galveston was struck by a hurricane that killed about 6,000 people. Although his fortified home is 30 feet above sea level and out of the risk of storm surge, Read says he stocks up on supplies to last seven days without power, just in case. Deputy director Ed Rappaport will take charge as interim director if Read’s successor is not named before June 1. NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is expected to release its hurricane season outlook next week. The 2011 hurricane season was the sixth con-secutive year without the U.S. landfall of a major hurricane: Category 3 or higher, with winds of 111 mph or higher. However, it produced the third-high-est number of tropical storms on record. Among those 19 named storms was Hurricane Irene, which paralyzed the Eastern sea-board and caught parts of the Northeast by surprise with deadly flooding. Irene was one of the costliest storms in U.S. history.

The first-in-humans achievement may also be helpful for more com-mon diseases such as Parkinson’s that involve nerve cell damage caused by lack of a crucial mol-ecule in brain tissue. The results are reported today (May 16) in the journal Science Translational Medicine. The children in the study, who ranged in age from 4 to 6, inherited a rare disease known as aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase deficiency, or AADC. Patients with AADC are born without an enzyme that enables the brain to produce the neurotransmitter dopa-mine. They generally die in early childhood. In a phase 1 clinical trial led by Wuh-Liang Hwu, M.D., of the National Taiwan University Hospital, surgeons used a delivery vehicle called an adeno-associated virus type 2 vector to transport the AADC gene into local-ized areas of the brains of three girls and a boy. Before therapy, the children showed practical-ly no spontaneous move-ment and their upper eye-lids continually drooped. After receiving the corrective gene, the children gradually gained some head movement. Sixteen months afterward, the children’s weight had increased, one patient was able to stand and the other three were able to sit up without support. The study shows gene therapy that targets AADC deficiency is well-tolerat-ed and leads to improved motor development and function, according to co-authors Barry Byrne, M.D., Ph.D., director of UF’s Powell Gene Therapy Center, and Richard O. Snyder, Ph.D., director of UF’s Center of Excellence for Regenerative Health Biotechnology. Both are members of the UF Genetics Institute. “The children in this study have the most severe form of inherited move-ment disorder known, and the only treatments so far have been support-ive ones,” said Byrne, a pediatric cardiologist and associate chairman of the department of pediatrics in the College of Medicine. “It is gratifying to see it is possible to do something to help them, other than providing feeding tubes and keeping them safe. This absolutely opens the door to the possibility of even earlier treatment of neurological diseases by direct gene transfer, and has implications for Parkinson’s disease, ALS and even cognitive diseas-es such as dementia when caused by gene defects.” Children with rare disease improve The Powell Gene Therapy Center provided expertise to the Taiwanese physicians on treating the patients and engineering the corrective gene that spurs production of the absent AADC enzyme. Edwards doesn’t testify at trial By MICHAEL BIESECKERAssociated PressGREENSBORO, N.C. — John Edwards’ team wrapped up their defense Wednesday without call-ing the ex-presidential candidate, his mistress or daughter to testify, a move experts say was intended to shift focus from a political sex scandal to the nitty-gritty of campaign finance law. “The defense wasn’t sexy, but the defense doesn’t want sexy. It wants an acquittal,” said Steve Friedland, a pro-fessor at Elon University School of Law. The prosecution presented nearly three weeks of evidence and testimony.

Jackson was most worried with the offensive line, but it doubles up since most of the same guys are expected to play up front on defense. “We still have work to do and have to really step it up,” Jackson said this week. “If we are to get to the level we want to be as a team, we have got to get better play from the offensive line.” A.J. Kluess and Chris Waites are returning starters on the offensive line. Randall Fraddosio, Brayson Caley and Drew Gaylard have stepped into the mix. “Caleb Bundy is our tight end, but he is part of that offensive line,” Jackson said. “It is kind of the same deal on the defensive line,” Jackson said. “We only play three linemen, but we alter-nate them. We need others to step up and give us bet-ter depth.” Trey Phillips has been holding down a wide receiv-er spot, and also playing safety. Back-up quarterback Melton Sanders has joined Phillips as the other safety and Brandon Myers is mov-ing in at cornerback with Tavaris Williams. Myers is working at receiver along with Kody Moniz. “Trey is solid,” Jackson said. “He missed a couple of passes (Saturday) he should have caught, but he is one of those guys that didn’t come out much. A lot of the college scouts look-ing on said he made some of the best tackles. Melton is a smart kid and has a great upside.” Kellen Snider and Cameron White return at linebacker. E.J. Garrison is working on the outside. “Cameron has had a real good spring,” Jackson said. “In the Red & Black spring game he really stepped up.” Fort White plays at Orange Park High on Friday. Kickoff is 7 p.m. Fort White High expects starters to go both ways. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort White High School football players stretch out before p ractice on May 9. One week leftBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High began its final week of preparations with starting quarterback Jayce Barber back firmly in the mix. Barber had been splitting time with the Tigers’ base-ball team on their playoff run and missed Friday’s Purple & Gold game to be with the team. It had an obvious impact on the game according to head coach Brian Allen. “Defensively, I thought it was a very good practice,” Allen said. “Without having Jayce there made a huge dif-ference. Austin (Williams) had to take all the snaps and that was a little much for a backup quarterback in a spring game.” Allen said the offense has cranked it up a notch with Barber back under center. “I’m happy to get Jayce back in the full-time mode of things,” he said. “Things are more crisp with our leader back.” Allen credited Barber’s leadership as the biggest difference on the practice field. “If your quarterback isn’t the leader of the football team, it might not be a huge difference, but he has that air about him, when he steps under center, everyone is ready to go,” Allen said. “That changes the whole outlook of the offense when he’s there and for him, it helps timing.” Though Barber spent time with the baseball team, Allen doesn’t fault the quar-terback. “When you’re trying to do two at once, it’s definitely weight on you from a point of playing the position,” Allen said. “We’re happy he’s getting back into the mold of football, football, football and it’s helping a ton.” The Tigers will spend much of this final week preparing to travel to take on Dunnellon High at 7 p.m. on Friday. The most important thing the Tigers can get down this week on the offensive side of the ball is tempo according to Allen. “We only have 14 practices and you take away Dunnellon and the Purple & Gold and we only have 12 practices,” Allen said. “We want all of it to blend together with tempo so that it’s not just throwing and catching. Having (Jayce) back helps us get into that mold.” Fortunately the Tigers haven’t had to battle the elements this week as prac-tice has run according to plan. “We’ve been good,” Allen said. “(The rain) has come and come hard when it has, but it hasn’t stopped us from getting our practices in. It hasn’t hindered us at all.” A couple of new faces have emerged late in the spring and Allen pointed out that they could be bright spots against Dunnellon as well. “Some young guys have stepped up,” Allen said. “Lonnie (Underwood) had a pretty good run or two and Desmond Mayo had a pretty good catch of about 40 or 50 yards. That was something we were looking to see.” But Allen would like to see the team develop a little depth behind the starters.

In a phone interview from Amelia Island, Fla. — where the meetings were held — Swofford touched on a wide range of topics. He said ACC schools prefer a postseason plan for foot-ball that would incorporate the bowls for at least the semifinal stage of a four-team playoff with confer-ence champions meeting “a certain standard within the rankings.” But much of the outside attention lately has focused on Florida State and the rumblings that the Seminoles possibly could leave the ACC for the Big 12. FSU President Eric Barron sent an email to those asking about the possibility of a confer-ence switch, listing the pros and cons of chang-ing conferences but mak-ing a strong case for stay-ing put. Athletic director Randy Spetman recently told the Orlando Sentinel the school was committed to the ACC. Florida State board of trustees chair-man Andy Haggard told Warchant.com, a website that covers FSU sports, that the board “would be in favor of seeing what the Big 12 might have to offer.” “Obviously, Florida State’s representatives were here, but in terms of it affecting our business, it really didn’t,” Swofford said. “It was business as usual as we move ahead becoming a 14-team league. “We’ve got 12 important members, and we’ll soon have 14 important mem-bers,” he added. “And mov-ing ahead with the imple-mentation that needs to be made, decisions that need to be made, and the start of an excellent new televi-sion contract and just the normal, operational kinds of things that we do on an annual basis that aren’t really newsworthy (or) sexy, so to speak. ... We just had an excellent meeting in regard to all of that. “And in terms of Florida State, they are a valuable member, just like our other 11 — and soon our other 13 — are.” Swofford said schools considered options for a four-team playoff model and expressed a “strong preference” for one that would incorporate the bowls for at least the two semifinals — if not also the championship game. He said the schools also would opt for a selection process that gives preference to conference champions. “They felt that was important as it relates to the regular season and as it relates to the meaning-fulness of being a cham-pion in order to play for the national championship,” Swofford said. “So there’s a preference there for incor-porating conference cham-pions into this, as best it could be done. And it may be difficult to make it four conference champions, but the feeling was, look at a hybrid that includes confer-ence champions that meet a certain standard within the rankings. ... Maybe there’s an at-large berth open. So we’re interested in looking at that type of model first, as well as con-sideration of a 1-2-3-4 rank-ing model.” The ACC is set to add Pittsburgh and Syracuse at some point in the future, but it remains unclear exactly when that will happen. Pitt last week filed a lawsuit against the Big East Conference in a Pennsylvania court in an attempt to expedite its exit from that conference and join the ACC for the 2013-14 academic year. “We’re ready to receive them as soon as they can come,” Swofford said. “That’s between the two schools and the Big East Conference.” When that happens, the ACC will go to a nine-game conference schedule in football. Swofford said that in odd-numbered years, Atlantic Division teams will play five home games with Coastal Division teams playing five at home in even-numbered years. In basketball, Swofford said all 14 schools will play in both the men’s and women’s conference tour-naments — and they will grow to five-day events starting on Wednesdays and ending on Sundays. The Nos. 11-14 seeds will play that first day, he said.

DEAR ABBY: “Searching for ‘Me’ in Texas” (March 4) is not alone! A wave of 78 million baby boomers will soon leave 30-plus-year careers and are looking forward to an estimated 20 more years of life. A vast majority of them are looking for meaning-ful opportunities for the second half of their lives. “Searching” should seek out a non-profit organiza-tion for a cause she’s pas-sionate about and offer her skilled services. If “Searching” doesn’t need an income, she can volun-teer. Finally, instead of seeking a graduate degree, she could look at her local community college and find non-credit classes that interest her and participate without the pressure of credited course work. -STEPHANIE IN PHOENIX DEAR STEPHANIE: Your suggestions are all good ones. Second careers are becoming more com-mon, and there are many opportunities for seniors to enjoy their “encore careers.” Read on for more options: DEAR ABBY: Your advice to “Searching” was dead-on. After a 30-year career in the insurance industry, I was forced into early retire-ment by a corporate buyout. At 59, I was stunned and unprepared. After some soul searching, I decided I wasn’t done with life. I started reading, talking to friends and praying. There were some false starts. I tried out for the Peace Corps but backed out. I got into an income tax class that was over my head. Then I got another insurance job and found myself back in the rat race. I made ends meet by substitute teaching and began to realize that, eons ago, I had wanted to be a teacher. (I had been talked out of it.) So I started back to college for my master’s degree in teaching. Talk about scared! It had been 33 years since I had seen the inside of a classroom. But my experi-ence was one of the most challenging, positive and enriching I have ever known. I met wonderful people along the way and was admired for my life experience, insight and work ethic. It wasn’t all sweetness and light, but if I had to do it over again I’d do it in a minute. -CATHERINE IN ILLINOIS DEAR ABBY: “Searching” might con-sider volunteering with SCORE -Service Corps of Retired Executives. Her skills are needed and would be appreciated. That way she can dabble in her old work and have a sense of accomplish-ment. -CHARLES IN MARYLAND DEAR ABBY: As a volunteer coordinator at a large non-profit, I have many volunteers who discovered us as a result of a retirement search. The AARP’s volunteer engagement site is www.createthegood.org, and www.volunteermatch.org is a nationwide site for searching volunteer oppor-tunities. “Searching” needs to think about things she would like to do but couldn’t while working, and dip her toe in the water. If she tries some-thing and it isn’t a fit, she has no obligation and can try another. It may lead to a paid “encore” career or fulfill her through volunteerism. -JAN IN YARDLEY, PA. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Balance will be key. Too much of anything will be overkill. Take a moment to enjoy some-thing simple. Most of all, don’t get dragged into melodrama. Reassess your situation, consider your options and decide based on reality and practicality. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your strong opinions will be controversial, but they’ll also help you see who supports you and who doesn’t. Stay positive and refrain from showing your disappointment to those who are heading in a dif-ferent direction. Focus on the here and now. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A strategic budget will keep your money safe. Put a long-term plan in place that will put your mind at ease regarding your ability to take care of your needs in the future. An offer someone makes may be laced with ulterior motives. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your adaptability will surprise people. Helping a cause or someone in need will bring you satisfaction and enhance your reputa-tion. New friendships will offer greater potential to advance. A venture you pursue will improve your status. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Compromise and you will eventually get the upper hand. A passion-ate approach will be too engaging for others to ignore. Your ability to make the most with what you’ve got will bring you victory. Love is in the stars. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep a close watch on your finances. An impulsive purchase will leave you short. Pleasing someone may help you get ahead at work but will probably cause friction at home. An interesting com-ment will help you find other uses for your skills. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Concentrate on doing whatever you can to save money. You will make an impression on someone important if you can get your finances in order and secure your domestic environment. Work with the budget you have to add to your comfort at home. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Get approval before you move forward with one of your ideas or plans. There will be people around you who aren’t will-ing to take the same risks. Explain your position in order to advance without opposition. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Problems with a friend, relative or neighbor will escalate if you don’t address complaints imme-diately. Take responsibility and make alterations to satisfy those wanting to take action against you. Focus on love during the evening hours. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Make home improvements that will contribute to comfort and fun for you, your family or friends. Your determina-tion to please people you love will enhance your relationships and ease any tension that has been building. An investment will pay off. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Stop repeating your mistakes. Address problems quickly so you can move on. Don’t let any-one down, including you, and start by better orga-nizing your time. Love is apparent, but honesty will make it happen. Less talk, more action. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Do whatever it takes to win support. The more adaptable you are, the easier it will be to adjust your skills to meet currents requirements. Reconnecting to someone who can contribute to your plan will be more helpful than you anticipate. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

LeBron James, the reign ing MVP, was running on fumes after playing near ly 43 minutes, much of it down low banging into the Pacers big men, trying to paper over the absence of teammate Chris Bosh. Dwyane Wade? He was slightly fresher, but tired, too, not to mention sul len and streaky by turns, having lost his cool with less than 10 minutes to go and then missing a layup with 16 seconds left that would have tied the game. And so with two of the best clutch scorers in the NBA relegated to decoys, the ball wound up in the hands of Mario Chalmers for the final shot, a 3-pointer from the left side of the arc with 8 seconds left and Miami trailing by three. He missed. But at the moment, clos ing looks like the least of the Heats problems. This series has started, Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said after Indianas 78-75 win evened the conference semifinal at 1-1. They won on our home court. Now we have to collect ourselves, gather ourselves and get ready for Game 3. Thats all that matters right now. That might be easier said than done. The Heat will likely be without Bosh for the remainder of the series, and perhaps even the rest of the playoffs, after he strained a lower abdominal muscle in a Game 1 win. How big a problem his absence would cause wasnt apparent right away, because James and Wade shared the burden for the rest of that first game, outscoring the Pacers 42-38 in the second half. And it seemed they were going to do it again Tuesday night, combining for 26 of Miamis final 29 points but zero as the Heat went scoreless over the last 2 1 2 minutes. No other Miami player scored more than five for the game. There are a variety of ways to measure Boshs contributions. The Heat score seven fewer points per game on average with out him, and their shooting percentage from the floor tumbles from a well above the league-average 49 per cent to a slightly sub-par 44 percent. But its Boshs ver satility that Miami figures to miss even more than his production. Because of his length, Bosh can rebound and score consistently in the paint like a big man. Because of his strong mid-range jumper, he can pull defenders away from the basket and open up the lane for James and Wade. And because he can pile up points both ways and in a hurry if need be he gave Spoelstra the freedom to cobble together lineups designed to buy his other stars the occasional breather or attack an oppo nents specific weakness. Or to put it another way: Bosh was the glue between the two superstars and the rest of the Miami squad, which could charitably be described as a collection of role players Chalmers, Udonis Haslem, Mike Miller and Shane Battier and fugitives from the cen ter position Joel Anthony and Ronny Turiaf who were signed by Heat boss Pat Riley with the few dol lars he had left after paying the big three. The more wearying the task for James and Wade becomes, and the more the rest of the team has to pick up the slack, the more likely it becomes well see other shooting nights like Game 2, when the Heat shot 35 percent from the floor and 1 of 16 from behind the arc. We were able to get Dwyane Wade a rest in the fourth quarter. His min utes were manageable, Spoelstra recalled. LeBron can expect forty plus min utes in a competitive series like this. I wish I could have got him a minute or two of rest in the fourth quarter. But because of the hole that we dug ourselves, he added, there was no way to do it. Miami better get used to the pace because Indiana isnt likely to change a thing. The Pacers learned in their first-round series against Orlando the best way to gum up a spread offense like the one the Heat have been forced to deploy. The Magic were without All-Star big man Dwight Howard, so Indiana played a deliberate half-court offense, parking big men Roy Hibbert and David West in the lane to clog things up on the other end and control the boards. A 50-40 edge in rebounds Tuesday night helped the Pacers overcome some notso-nifty shooting of their own (38 percent from the floor). Our team has won with defense and rebounding all year. Those are the two areas that hurt us most in Game 1, Indiana coach Frank Vogel said. The tran sition game and rebound ing they won (in Game 1). Tonight we won those two battles and helped us get over the hump. We understand that offense is going to come and go, he added a moment later. Our defense has got to be our staple. Our guys competed harder tonight than they probably have in the entire season. ASSOCIATED PRESS Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh (center) drives past Indiana Pacers guard Paul George, left, and forward David West during the first half of Game 1 in an NBA basketball Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series on Sunday in Miami. Bosh was ruled out of the second half of the game because of what the team called a lower abdominal injury. The Heat won 95-86. NASCARs pit crews get their chance to shine By PETE IACOBELLI Associated Press DARLINGTON, S.C. Carl Edwards loves plenty of things about NASCARs All-Star week. One of his favorites, though, is seeing his crew members in the spotlight instead of him self. Edwards No. 99 team is among 24 Sprint Cup crews competing in the eighth NASCAR Pit Crew Challenge in Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday night. Denny Hamlins No. 11 crew enters as two-time defending champions. Its cool for the drivers, said Edwards, who plans to cheer on his crew at TimeWarner Cable Arena. We get to show up and watch our guys perform and the pressures not on us, its on them. Thats neat to see everything kind of turned upside down. Its been like that since 2005 when NASCAR held its first showcase for pit roads Over the Wall gangs. The event was an instant hit among the crew members, who soaked up the chance to show off their skills. The pit crew competi tion, says Mike Lepp, Joe Gibbs Racings director of athletics, is a big deal. Crew members earn priz es more than $260,000 was awarded last year and gain a swagger they carry to pit roads through out the circuit. The champi on team also gets the No. 1 pit stall for Saturday nights All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Heath Cherry, Hamlins rear tire changer, knows his team is in everyones sights becoming the first with consecutive titles. Cherry and the No. 11 team have helped Hamlin win twice this year at Phoenix and Kansas, and finish second to Jimmie Johnson in last Saturdays Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. Lepp has seen the pits transform in his six year at JGR. The days when a friend of a friend who knows something about cars could help change tires are long gone. Today, teams are stocked with well-trained professionals who thrive on competition and success. Cherry played lineback er for Lenoir-Rhyne and has spent 13 years pitting cars. He was on the front edge of the change when NASCAR teams recruited ex-athletes accustomed to hard work and striving for success people who finished up careers in college football, baseball and other sports and were looking for that competitive outlet. Lepp said the reasoning is simple: Better athletes mean faster pit stops. We still have guys that have racing backgrounds that are pitting cars, but theyre starting to become few and far between, Lepp said. Just look at how pit times have improved in the past few years. Lepp said 14-sec ond stops were the gold standard six years ago. Now, if youre not under 13 seconds, youre done, he said. A year ago, there were only five teams who consis tently broke the 13-second mark. Now, Lepp counts 15 teams in that group. Were seeing an evolution in pit stops, he said. Winning the race in the pits leads right to victory lane. Pit success is critical because of track position, Lepp said. When we get to the Chase, weve got to be faster than we were at the beginning, he said. The changes were evi dent in last years Pit Crew Challenge. The No. 14 team of Tony Stewart set an event record the seven-man team competition includes push ing the car 40 yards with a time of 21.472 seconds in the quarterfinals. We do evaluations each night and if one person goes down we need someone behind them that can come in and have an immediate impact. Thats got to be uni versal across the board. We need to get better in that aspect. Allen doesnt know if thats something that the Tigers can accomplish in the next couple of days before the Dunnellon game or if itll come during the summer. Were doing everything under the sun to have them understand (the schemes), Allen said. Thats some thing that we want to see in all areas. We want to be a little more crisp. The final evaluation will come against Dunnellon on Friday. CHS From Page 1B
