By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comArea health officials are expected to issue public notice today that an algal bloom has been identified in the Santa Fe River. The recommendations are pretty common sense we recommend people avoid contact with any big visible algae blooms, said Anthony Dennis, Alachua County Environmental Health director. Some peo-ple who are more sensitive to environmental factors, could experience rashes and that kind of thing. Its really a common sense thing, just avoid contact with the visible algae. The Santa Fe River creates a border between Alachua County and Columbia County at the area in question. Access to one of the areas impact-ed by the agal bloom is through the U.S. Highway 27 bridge boat ramp on the Columbia County side of the river.

Afternoon crashJASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterBy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comTalk of a security threat at graduation has circulated at Columbia High School in recent days, CHS principal Terry Huddleston said Wednesday. However, commencement will go on as planned Friday, he said. A CHS senior made unsettling comments that warranted a police investigation, according to Huddleston. Other students reported the comments to administration as they are instructed to, he said. A school resource deputy interviewed the student and his mother, but the investigation did not find any concrete threats to safety, Huddleston said. The exact nature of the comments is unknown. The school has created additional security measures prior to, during and after baccalaureate and graduation ceremonies that the student must follow. Huddleston said if there were any concrete threats, the student would not be participating in graduation ceremonies. In addition to the security plan for the student, extra security will be present. We always increase security for graduation because it is the largest attended function in Columbia County, he said. The students name was not released. About 390 CHS students will participate in graduation ceremo-nies Friday at 7 p.m. in Tiger Stadium. Tonight the baccalaure-ate ceremony will be from 6 to 9 p.m. at Christ Central Ministries, 217 Dyal Road. For graduation, seniors should report to the school auditorium at 5 p.m., said Jill Hunter, student activities director. Parents, family and friends can arrive between 6 and 6:30 p.m. Visitors should arrive early enough to park and walk to stadi-um before 6:55 p.m., when school gates will be locked, Hunter said. Visitors should enter the school through the gate on US 441 and will be directed to a park-ing space on campus. Valedictorians Jonathan Darby, Bryce McCarthy and Ashlin Thomas will speak during the ceremony. All three students have a 4.0 grade point average and same ACT score. Salutatorian Ryan Thomas has a 4.0 GPA and the sec-ond-highest ACT score. Eight seniors have a 4.0 GPA this year, Hunter said.

She has been in the work force for 40 years and is retiring at a youthful 56. Leaving is bittersweet, Hall said.She plans to stay on until a replacement is found. Hall has been a resident of Lake City since 1997 when she and her husband, Dr. Charles W. Hall, who is the president of Florida Gateway College, moved from Arizona. It has been exciting to watch it grow and expand, said Hall. I have been with this branch of St. Leo since the begin-ning. Lake City Center Director Charles Oden has worked alongside Hall as they advised students together. She will be sorely missed, Oden said. She has been exceptional and student-oriented.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS Daily Scripture Celebrity Birthdays AROUND FLORIDA ORLANDO George Zimmerman made com-plaints about Sanfords police department, accus-ing officers of being lazy and calling for the repeal of the outgoing police chiefs pension, at a com-munity forum more than a year before he shot and killed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. The Miami Herald first reported details from the January 2011 meeting on Wednesday from an audio recording. In the nearly threeminute tape obtained by The Associated Press, Zimmerman tells city commissioners about the disgusting behavior of officers, which he says he witnessed as part of a ride along program. He also asked Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett to look into his accusations and called for outgoing Sanford police chief Brian Tooleys pension to be repealed because of what Zimmerman said were cover-ups and corruption within the department.State begins work on new university TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Construction of a campus for Floridas 12th univer-sity is over budget and few people have shown inter-est in serving at trustees. A Board of Governors committee got that update Wednesday as it began expediting the conversion of a University of South Florida branch into Florida Polytechnic University. The initial phase of the Lakeland campus now is expected to cost up to $14 million more than its $99 million budget. Meanwhile, only 10 people have applied for 11 seats on its Board of Trustees. The committee made several recommendations to get the conversion mov-ing, and the full Board of Governors is expected to take them up next week.Hurricane could affect convention TALLAHASSEE The Republican National Convention scheduled in Tampa for late August would be among the casu-alties if the area is threat-ened then by a hurricane, Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll said Wednesday. Public safety thats going to be the number one priority, Carroll said. We can have the conven-tion again. However, rescheduling such a major event could be difficult heading into Labor Day weekend and with the Democratic National Convention slated for Charlotte, N.C. the fol-lowing week. Carroll said Gov. Rick Scott, who returns Thursday from a trade mis-sion to Spain, would make the call if the GOP conven-tion were threatened by severe weather. This is his state, and public safety is primary, Carroll reiterated. State emergency workers have spent recent days tracking a fictitious Category 3 Hurricane Gispert that would hit Tarpon Springs, just north of Tampa, two days after the convention is sched-uled to begin. Wed be dealing a lot with storm surge issues down there, said Bryan Koon, the states emergency management direc-tor. Were also working on a high number of potential evacuations. The four-day GOP convention is scheduled for Aug. 27 to 30, smack dab in the middle of Floridas hurricane season. Two of the most damaging hurricanes to hit the U.S. reached Florida in late August. Hurricane Katrina made landfall north of Miami on Aug. 25, 2005 while Hurricane Andrew came ashore with 145 mph winds just south of Miami on Aug. 24, 1992. Florida heads into the official six-month storm season that begins June 1 having evaded a hur-ricane on its shores for an unprecedented six straight years. And the forecast for a seventh straight year without a hurricane is also encouraging. I want to remind Floridians that 20 years ago the same predic-tion was made, Carroll said. In August 1992, Florida was forever altered. Hurricane Andrew changed the landscape of Florida.FSU student dies on China Program TALLAHASSEE A 19-year-old Florida State senior participating in the universitys international program in China has died after a fall from a resi-dence hall.

On Wednesday nights finale, host Ryan Seacrest will announce whether viewers picked 16-year-old Jessica Sanchez or 21-year-old Phillip Phillips. The contestants made their final stand Tuesday, each performing three songs. Phillips, of Leesburg, Ga., earned con-sistently high marks from the shows judges, but the panel faulted Sanchezs final number, Change Nothing. The teenager from Chula Vista, Calif., agreed, saying she should have gone more urban with her song choice. Actor McKean hit by car in NYC NEW YORK Broadway producers are scrambling to fill Michael McKeans part in a revival of Gore Vidals The Best Man as the actor recov-ers from a broken leg after being hit by a car in New York City.

Richards says the 64year-old McKean, who por-trayed the lead singer in the movie This is Spinal Tap, is in stable condition. The actor has apparently never skipped a show in his career, and Richards says this is the kind of first we are reluctant to announce.Cake Boss kin gets 9 years MORRISTOWN, N.J.

The entire story is reprinted below. By HANNAH O. BROWN and LAURA HAMPSON The jobless rate in Columbia County has fallen, but so has the number of people here seeking work. An April report from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity showed a .4 percent decrease from last month in the number of unemployed individuals in Columbia County. However, the num ber of people in the county workforce decreased from 31,248 to 30,764 during the same period. A smaller workforce can be explained by a large num ber of people permanently leaving jobs to retire, not just discouraged job seek ers, said Darlene Strimple, project director for Florida Crown Workforce Board, which serves Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist and Union counties. In addition, the FDEO report does not account for seasonally adjusted posi tions in this county. Seasonally adjusted unemployment rates are only calculated for large, metropolitan areas, Strimple said. Because the data is not seasonally adjusted, jobs from industries such as tourism and agriculture are considered within the same parameters as non-season ally adjusted positions. Columbia County had the 40th highest unemploy ment rate out of 67 counties in the state. The rate was higher than the national average of 8.1 percent for April. Floridas overall unem ployment rate was 8.7 per cent in April, the lowest since January 2009, accord ing to the FDEO report. Florida has added 52,600 jobs since April 2011. April is the 21st straight month of positive annual job growth in state after job losses for three years, the FDEO report states. State averages show more jobs in professional and business services over other sectors. Other grow ing industries include pri vate education and health services, leisure and hos pitality as well as financial activities. Industries with the most jobs lost statewide include construction, government and information services. With rates statewide on the decrease, Strimple hopes the trend continues to move downward. Thats still way higher than wed like, Strimple said. The lower the better for everybody. Unemployment rate down, but so is size of workforce By JESSIE R. BOX firstname.lastname@example.org When 18-month-old Eyonna Jones stopped breathing outside the Dollar General store on Baya Drive Tuesday while in the company of two of her aunts, an unidentified stranger stepped in to help. An unknown man gave the baby CPR until medical help arrived. Tameka Phillips, the childs foster mother, described him as a modern day Superman. He came to the rescue and then disappeared. She wants him to come forward so she can thank him. He saved her life, said Phillips, who wasnt there to witness the mans heroics. She was turning purple. Earlier that day Phillips daughters-inlaws, Anquancha Davis and Bionca Woods, came home to a feverish Eyonna. Davis and Woods drove the baby to the Dollar General to get her some medicine. Woods then realized Jones was not breathing. Jovanna Sanders, who described herself as Jones aunt, said Eyonna has a condition that causes seizures when her tempera ture rises. Thank you for saving the pride and joy of my life, Sanders said. The family wanted to extend their appreciation to the unknown man and the employees of the Dollar General who helped during the ordeal. Toddler stops breathing, but stranger saves the day Eighteen-month old Eyonna Jones stopped breathing outside the Dollar General Store on Baya Drive Tuesday, but a stranger pro vided lifesaving CPR. COURTESY BY LAURA HAMPSON email@example.com Columbia High School representatives toured the Port of Los Angeles and a high school logistics program last week in hopes of bringing home ideas and experience to Columbia Countys own logistics academy. Terry Huddleston, CHS principal, and Rebecca Golden, CHS Global Logistics Academy teacher, were in California May 14 and 15 touring the expansive port. Representatives from the Port of Jacksonville, Florida State College at Jacksonville and the Duval County School Board also went on the trip. Huddleston said seeing the port and logistics opportu nities brought a tremendous amount of validity to what we are doing. Touring the port was eye opening, Golden said. There were storage containers and cranes as far as the eye could see, she said. The Port of Los Angeles encompasses 7,500 acres, 43 miles of waterfront and features 25 cargo terminals, including passenger, container, dry and liquid bulk, automobile and warehouse facilities. The port gener ates employment for more than 3.3 million Americans nationwide. In California alone, nearly 1 million jobs are related to trade though the port, according to the ports Web site. Golden said she took videos and pictures on the tour that she will share with students. Goldens travel expenses were paid with grant money and Huddlestons were paid by the North East Florida Educational Consortium, Plum Creek, Columbia County Industrial Development Authority and the material Handlers Industry of America. The greatest thing I took away from it is that Florida is on the right track, Golden said. Florida students can earn certification while in a high school logistics program, while California students have to earn it after graduating, she said. CHS students can earn a Global Logistics Associate, a nationally recognized certification that acknowledges completion of rigorous coursework in logistics and supply chain for entry level positions. Logistics is the movement of goods to the end user. It is not just physical labor, but includes jobs in informa tion technology, business administration, sales, human resources and engineering Golden said she and other school representatives were able to make contacts at the port, which will be helpful for future support and advice. One ship can hold $5 billion in merchandise that is distributed all over the country, Huddleston said. The potential financial opportunity of the inland port is monu mental to our community, he said. Logistics and distribution industry jobs have the high est average wage right now in Florida, he said. There are a tremendous amount of career opportunities throughout the industry, he said. Huddleston said logistics is particularly attractive to young people in this area because it is not so much an office setting, but an environment where employees move, work with their hands and can be successful with a high school degree, two-year certificate or four-year degree. The school officials learned how the port works with school programs so we dont have to reinvent the wheel for student internships and externships, Huddleston said. There businesses reinvest in local communities to create jobs, a model CHS is working to follow, Huddleston said. The Port of Los Angeles helps support a nonprofit organization that supports high school internships and programs, he said.

ONE OPINION I ts no longer possible to pretend we dont know the intentions of Irans rulers. They are telling us -candidly, clearly and repeatedly. Most recently on Sunday: Addressing a gather-ing in Tehran, Maj. Gen Hassan Firouzabadi, chief of staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, vowed the full annihilation of the Zionist regime of Israel to the end. A few days earlier, during a presentation at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, Jose Maria Aznar, former prime minister of Spain, recalled a private discussion in Tehran in October 2000 with Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, who told him: Israel must be burned to the ground and made to disappear from the face of the Earth. Dore Gold, the former Israeli ambassador to the U.N. who now heads the respected JCPA think tank, wanted to be certain there was no misunderstand-ing. He asked Aznar: Was Khamenei suggesting a grad-ual historical process involving the collapse of the Zionist state, or rather its physical-military termination? He meant physical termination through military force, Aznar said. Khamenei called Israel an historical cancer -an echo of Nazi rhetoric he has employed on numerous occa-sions, the last time in public on Feb. 3. Khamenei also told Aznar that the goal of the Islamic Revolution of 1979 has remained constant: To rid the world of two evils -Israel and the U.S. Eventually, there must be an open confrontation. Khamenei said it was his duty is to ensure that Iran prevails, Aznar said. With this as context, it is no longer possible to pretend that the acquisition of nuclear weapons is not a priority for Khamenei. The notion that he is merely making -as Reuters charmingly phrases it -a peaceful bid to generate electricity, or has not decided whether he wants nuclear weapons, or wants them only as a deterrent because he fears foreign aggressors, or has issued a fatwa declaring posses-sion of nuclear weapons a sin, or favors diplomatic conflict res-olution but requires a series of confidence-building measures -all that is wishful thinking and self-delusion, if not blatant dis-information. Testifying before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs last week, Mark Dubowitz, my colleague at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, warned Congress that Irans negotiators will offer conces-sions that sound meaningful but are not, in exchange for Western concessions that sound trivial but amount to capitulation. In his presentation in Jerusalem, Aznar recalled also a meeting he had with Vladimir Putin, in which he advised the Russian president against sell-ing surface-to-air missiles to Iran. Dont worry -I, you -we can sell them everything, even if we are worried by an Iranian nuclear bomb, Aznar quoted Putin as saying. Because at the end of the day, Israel will take care of it. Aznar told this story in Washington about a year ago but, at the time, he asked those of us in the room to keep it off the record. I remember that he added incredulously: But thats the Russian policy? To let Israel take care of it? If, in the days ahead, this becomes the de-facto policy of the U.S. and Europe as well, we should not pretend we dont know that -or that we dont understand the profound impli-cations.

The country was supposed to be awash in them by now. But unless they are among the privileged few Facebook insid-ers, investors probably either lost money on the websites initial public offering (IPO) or were smart enough to wait and see. The debut was so poorly handled that financial regulators will soon be look-ing into it. For a while last week, it seemed like the Internet boom of the late 1990s had returned. America was seized with the kind of irrational euphoria that quickly made and lost fortunes when the dot-com bubble popped in March 2000. Headlines promised instant riches. Facebooks IPO was spring-loaded to soar. U2s Bono, an early investor, would be richer than the surviving Beatles. Facebook was going to be such a strong opener that it would boost the entire sagging market. So said the hype. Others predicted a political game-changer. Michael Mandel of the Progressive Policy Institute speculated in the Atlantic that the Zuckmentum from the IPO might spark a sudden acceleration of growth and job creation fueled by the smartphone/communications boom that it could be a boon for President Obamas politi-cal fortunes and trouble for Mitt Romney. Alas, the App Economy still awaits. If a billion downloads of Angry Birds hasnt saved the Obama presidency, Facebook wont either. As it stands now, most of people who will make money on Facebook are the insid-ers who crafted the deal, and the farsighted outsiders who bet against it. All other inves-tors are simply waiting for the right time to defriend the stock that was supposed to save the day. Q The Washington Times OPINION Wednesday, May 24, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A Cliff May Q Clifford D. May is president of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, a policy institute focusing on terrorism. No longer any doubt about what Iran wants ANOTHER VIEW P resident Obama isnt backing down from his campaign ad attacking Mitt Romneys private equity firm, Bain Capital. Actually, attack may be too weak a description for a video that likens Bain to a vam-pire and depicts Mr. Romney as a plutocrat who callously destroyed hundreds of steel jobs for his own enrichment. Several prominent members of Mr. Obamas own party thought the commercial was a bit over the top. (Not to men-tion highly derivative of previ-ous ones financed by backers of Mr. Romneys Republican primary rivals.) Still, politics aint beanbag, and, if hes going to tout it as a qualification for the White House, Mr. Romneys business record is indeed fair game. The more pertinent question is what to make of Mr. Obamas defense of the ad, which he offered at a news conference Monday. Mr. Obama suggested that he never meant to condemn the private equity business as a whole. I think there are folks who do good work in that area and there are times where they identify the capacity for the economy to create new jobs or new industries, he noted. Instead, he added, he meant simply to point out that a career in private equity is not appropri-ate preparation for the White House. Theres a big differ-ence between what it takes to maximize profits, a perfectly legitimate goal in the business world, and what it takes to fig-ure out how everybody in the country has a fair shot, the job of a president, he said. On one level, its reassuring to learn that the president has a nuanced view of private equity, a business that has been rightly praised for revitalizing many a struggling enterprise and rightly criticized for loading up many rescued firms with debt to pay off investors. Of course, those investors include pub-lic employee unions pension funds, which had entrusted $220 billion to private equity as of fall 2011, according to Wilshire Trust Universe Comparison Service. The president accepted $3.5 million in campaign donations from private equity executives in 2008, and additional dollars this time around, so it would have been awkward for him not to concede that private equity does good work. As for the ads depiction of job destruc-tion, economists at the National Bureau of Economic Research found that firms restructured by private equity suffered net job losses over five years only 1 percent greater than other com-parable companies. Yet the minute Mr. Obama conceded those complications admitted, in effect, that the private equity business, like most endeavors, involves tradeoffs, and that its benefits might be shared among more than a hand-ful of fat cats he undercut his distinction between maximiz-ing profit and the common good. He also undercut his case against Mr. Romney, since Bain had its share of success stories on the former governors watch. What were left with is a president who seems content to present an even-handed view of private equity at his news confer-ences while propounding a much more tendentious one in his campaign advertising. Pointing out that a business career hasnt fully prepared Mr. Romney to be president, in other words, is a long way from suggesting that hes a vampire. Mr. Obamasmisstep onthe private equity game Q The Washington Post FacebookIPO issuepoorlymanaged E ducation Secretary Arne Duncan says student loans dont push up tuition, but of course, they do, much like housing prices were pushed up by banks giv-ing loans to people who could not afford the mortgages. Does anyone in Washington remem-ber how that turned out? Probably not. Washington encouraged the practice, which walloped our economy. But now its time for another goof and more misery. The latest piece of craziness, promoted by President Barack Obama and seconded by Republican presi-dential candidate Mitt Romney, is to keep student loans at 3.4 percent instead of letting them go up to 6.8 percent after June, as a law calls for. That works out to be a taxpayer gift, and people love taxpayer gifts, so many students are cheering. They shouldnt be. If Obama and Romney had agreed on a deal making sure college students got a regular kick in the rear, it would not be nearly as painful as this will be for some. Tuition does go up as easy loans proliferate. Let me explain why to Secretary Duncan, an education official who seems to need more edu-cation in pricing basics. Like any self-interested party, colleges and universities are ordinarily going to charge what the market will bear. A chief source of their funding these days is student loans. Keeping interest rates low helps keep the loans proliferating. That means tuition can go up, with students still arriving in num-bers that would not be possible for many of them if the govern-ment were not involved. Did Romney and Obama think of that? And how do they like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reids way of finding the billions needed to make up the reduction of interest to 3.4 percent? He wants to raise taxes on some small busi-nesses, which will be less likely to hire more people. Thats one thing that can happen when you pass higher business taxes. An Obamacare tax on firms making medical devices has caused several of them to delay expansion, meaning fewer jobs. Even though Washington insists on running our lives, you sometimes think legislators could not wind a toy meant for 6-year-olds. While we have incredible opportunities in this country at the moment -oil and natural gas fields that could make this economy boom, for one -we are in a major government-gen-erated mess. It mostly has to do with spending that is often counterproductive and waste-ful and cannot be continued at anywhere near present rates of increase without disaster. Its time to stop and quit the politics.

Continued From Page 5ADepartment on Monday took water samples along the Santa Fe in Alachua County from the U.S. Highway 27 bridge down to Poe Springs after concerns were raised by residents and environmentalists about water quality on a two-mile stretch of the river. Green and brown clumps of lyngbya algae, along with pea soup colored water, are prevalent in a two-mile stretch of the river near the U.S. Highway 27 bridge to an area near Poe Springs, where the water appears stagnant. Today (Wednesday) we received those results, Dennis said. We have iden-tified an algal bloom. The algae is called Anabaena algae. That algae is not known to produce toxins in Florida. No health effects have ever been documented with this species of algae. Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson, Our Santa Fe River presi-dent, said the Anabaena circinalis (Cyanobacteria) is the one they look at because it has been known to be toxic in Australia. However, we have never seen it as toxic in the United States, she said. Anabaena has been confirmed in other loca-tions in Florida. According to the DEP it has not been toxic. So, the DEP is doing further monitor-ing and studies based on the facts they have con-firmed Anabaena circina-lis through the test done at the lab. Dennis said he went out with representatives from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection on Tuesday and collected the water samples. They also took samples, but I believe they took sam-ples from a bigger expanse of the river, he said. I think they went up before where this (algal) bloom has been and went past it to get some compara-tive results. We dont have those results yet, but based on the algae that was iden-tified Monday, that algae is not known to produce toxins. He said his department doesnt have the authority to close the river to public access. The (Santa Fe) River is not our jurisdiction anyway, but there are springs along the river that are public bathing places, he said. If the water quality param-eters are bad, we would issue an advisory, but we dont have data to issue an advisory at this time. We did the bacteria checks at Poe Springs, the Alachua County Environmental Protection Department took bacteria samples along those same places where algae samples were taken and those results came back today (Wednesday) and they were all satisfac-tory. Dennis said the bacteria concentrations are accept-able, and there is no toxic algae that they are aware of, so they wouldnt be issu-ing an advisory. Instead were just putting a notice out this algal bloom has been identified avoid it where you see it, he said. is looking forward to filling her day giving back to the community she loves.

The addition would expand the board to seven elected officials. Each commissioner would be elected for a term of four years. Terms would be staggered so that one at-large commissioner is elect-ed every two years. The second proposed amendment would establish a citizen advisory committee that would serve to make rec-ommendations to the board of county commissioners on redistricting boundaries. No elected officials or employees of the county would be allowed on the committee. Article Two of the amendment states that the committee would preserve the several municipalities and geographi-cally cohesive racial or ethnic minority communities from fragmentation. The board of county commission would not be required to accept the com-mittees recommendation. A written justification of their decision would be required if the recommendation was rejected. A third amendment would change the current proce-dures for the board of county commissioners to remove the county manager. The amendment proposes that the removal of the county manager could be enacted with a majority vote at two consecutive meetings or a majority plus one vote at one meeting. The fourth proposed amendment would remove the required provision of sup-plementary public notice and information via the Internet. The amendment would take away the obligation for agendas and materials for the board of county commission-ers and subordinate boards to be provided on the Internet. The charter reviews fifth proposed amendment would remove a department heads option to make an appeal to the county commission on ter-mination by the county man-ager. Article Four of the amendment states, The County Manager shall have the sole authority to terminate any department head with or without cause. The sixth proposed amendment would get rid of the office of county attorney and would allow for the board of county commissioners to appoint the position.

By DAVID CRARYAssociated PressNEW YORK As more of Americas children are raised by relatives other than their parents, state and local governments need to do better in helping these families cope with an array of financial and emotional challenges, a new report concludes. Compared to the average parent, these extended-family caregivers are more likely to be poor, elderly, less educated and unemployed, according to the report, Stepping Up For Kids, being released Wednesday by the Baltimorebased Annie E. Casey Foundation. Yet despite these hurdles, child-welfare experts say children who cant be raised by their own parents fare better in kinship care than in the regular foster care system. We urge state policymakers to make crucial benefits and resources available to kinship families so that their children can thrive, said the Casey Foundations president, Patrick McCarthy. According to 2010 census data, about 5.8 million children, or nearly 8 percent of all U.S. children, live with grandparents identified as the head of household. However, many of those children have one or both of their parents in the household, as well as grandparents. The Casey report focuses on the estimated 2.7 million children being raised in the absence of their parents by grandparents, other relatives or close family friends. The report says this category of children whose parents might be dead, incarcerated, implicated in child abuse or struggling with addiction increased 18 percent between 2000 and 2010. The majority of such living arrangements are established informally, but as of 2010 there also were 104,000 children formally placed in kinship care as part of the state-supervised foster care system. These children accounted for 26 percent of all children removed from their homes by child welfare agencies and placed in state custody, but practices vary widely. In Florida and Hawaii, kinship care accounts for more than 40 percent of the children in foster care; in Virginia, the figure is only 6 percent. Through the Fostering Connections Act of 2008 and other programs, federal funds are available to assist children who leave foster care to live under the legal guardianship of relatives. However, states vary in how generously they allocate such funds, and the Casey report said more outreach is needed to ensure that kinship-care families know their options. Theyre trying to navigate this system on their own, and theres not a lot of knowledge about what benefits theyre eligible for, said Mark Testa, a professor at the University of North Carolina School of Social Work. Theyre actually doing a heroic job in keeping these kids part of the family, and they deserve our gratitude, he said. Without them, our foster care system would be overwhelmed. Donna Butts of the advocacy group Generations United estimated that kinship caregivers save U.S. taxpayers more than $6 billion a year by sparing state and local governments the cost of foster care. We shouldnt then just leave them alone, Butts said. They need information, they need support, they need respite. Both the children and the caregivers need help. Among the problems encountered by kinship caregivers, according to the Casey report: Many of them take on children who were abused or neglected, and are coping with the trauma of family separation. They sometimes lack the legal authority for enrolling a child in school or obtaining medical care. Though most kinship families are eligible for federal aid through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, many caregivers are unaware of this option or are reluctant to apply because of perceived stigma. Their eligibility for financial aid may be constricted by licensing requirements that were designed for foster parents and arent always appropriate for kinship families. Such requirements might include foster-parent training programs and regulations pertaining to the square footage and window size in bedrooms. Under federal law, unless they can meet the same hypertechnical licensing requirements as strangers, they are not, in fact, entitled to the help that total strangers get, said Richard Wexler of the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform. Among the agencies viewed as a leader in the field is greater Pittsburghs Allegheny County Department of Human Services, which makes kinship arrangements for more than half of its children in foster care. Its much less traumatic if they can go to someone they know and love, and who knows them, as opposed to going to strangers, no matter how well-intentioned that stranger is, said the departments director, Marc Cherna. The department policy is to pay kinship caregivers the same rates as other foster parents, and work with them on how to optimize the childrens long-term prospects. According to the Casey report, one in 11 American children lives in kinship care for at least three consecutive months. For black children, the ratio is one in five. Morrisella Middleton, 62, of Baltimore, raised two of her grandchildren for many years while also working full-time as supervisor of an assisted living facility. The childrens mother Middletons daughter had struggled with drug problems and their father died of cancer. It wasnt easy. Middleton went on disability after incurring congestive heart failure and hypertension, and relied almost entirely on Social Security benefits. Her grandson, Shane, also had chronic health problems related to lead poisoning, she said. I did not get the money like people do who are foster parents, Middleton said. The road has not been easy, but the reward has been so very satisfying. I see the fruits of my labors.

LDL cholesterol isnt entirely badDear Pharmacist, Would you elaborate on cholesterol, and what LDL and HDL numbers mean. --C.J. Dallas, Texas Answer: Theres mass confusion, everyone thinks cholesterol is bad. Medical authorities and television commercials have convinced some people that the lower your LDL number, the healthier you are. You should sit down for this: Cholesterol is a strong and wonderful anti-inflammatory and a potent antioxidant. Shocked? Because I bet you thought it was bad and that you should get rid of this bad awful cholesterol asap! Obviously, you dont want levels to run amok, but there is a point where you could lower excessively, and thats unhealthy. Well-designed studies have repeatedly demonstrated that cholesterol can block two different pathways responsible for inflammation and pain, 5-LOX and 5-COX. For the record, prescribed anti-inflammatories often work on those two pathways, but if you have enough natural cholesterol, it is doing the work for you... without cramping your legs and making you weak! We commonly refer to our bad LDL cholesterol and our good HDL cholesterol. Ive even used those terms myself because people automatically understand, but theyre silly. LDL and HDL are not even made of cholesterol! They are just fatty proteins, hence the name lipoprotein where lipo means fatty and protein means just that. (Stick with me, we are getting to the fun part.) There is no such thing as good or bad cholesterol, why would your body make something bad for you anyway? LDL stands for low density lipoprotein, and HDL stands for high density lipoprotein. LDL is nothing more than a carrier molecule, a pick-up truck that shuttles cholesterol (fat) to the tissues. You dont want too many deliveries of fat to your arteries and organs so doctors are correct in trying to tame LDL levels. HDL removes the fat from your tissues and returns it to the liver. Excellent! Thats why you are trying to raise HDL all the time, while lowering LDL. Balance is key. Total annihilation of LDL (and cholesterol) makes your life miserable. This LDL, the pick-up truck also shuttles nutrients and antioxidants such as vitamin E which has anti-cancer properties. LDL helps you make steroid hormones such as pregnenolone, cortisol, DHEA, estrogen and testosterone so you can feel youthful, happy, strong and fertile and much more. Im in your head right now, so let me tell you do not suddenly stop taking your medications, good gracious that is not at all what Im trying to say. Just understand that your body has a setpoint where you feel healthy and strong. Control them, but dont chase the numbers down too low! Natural considerations include niacin, guggul fish oils, astaxanthin and soluble fiber. Discuss changes to your medication/supplement regimen with your pharmacist and physician(s). Clarification from last week: Neither Forteo or Evista are bisphosphonate drugs, they work by a totally unique mechanism of action. DEAR PHARMACIST SUZY COHEN

They had only one condition they werent going any where without their dog. Hundreds of retirement communities across the country now allow seniors to live with their pets and more and more keep house pets that provide the benefits without the responsibility. As many as 40 percent of people ask about pets when calling A Place for Mom, the nations largest senior living refer ral service, said Tami Cumings, its senior vice presi dent. When the ser vice was founded 12 years ago, pets were seldom con sidered when it came time for older people to enter rest homes or skilled nursing homes, Cumings said. Then came the boom in independent living centers, assisted living complexes and memory centers for Alzheimers patients. At the same time, some people have latched on to stud ies that show pets can help their owners health physi cally and psychologically, said Lori Kogan, a profes sor of veterinary medicine at Colorado State University. Shirlee Horowitz and her husband chose the Regency Grand in West Covina, about 20 miles east of Los Angeles. Meals are provided, as is housekeeping and transpor tation. Medication manage ment and help with dressing and bathing can be arranged. But most of all, their collie Barney was welcome. I worried more about him because he had a big yard before, said Shirlee Horowitz, 77. But he has adjusted to this better than we have. Barneys friendliness has made it easier for the couple to meet their neighbors, and his walks have helped them get to know the complex. Living centers usually prefer smaller pets and put the limit at two. Not all pets are dogs and cats either, Cumings said. They get a lot of calls about birds and fish, too. As much as 30 percent of the residents at the Regency Grand have pets at any one time, said Leah Hynes, Regency Grands marketing associate. Seldom do the elderly move in with puppies or kittens, she said. Most of the time, their animals are older, too. One of the residents lost her husband of many decades. She wanted a pet so Hynes helped her choose a cat. They named it Annie and had the cat spayed, vac cinated and microchipped. It was like bringing a new baby home. She had the apartment set up and couldnt wait to have the companionship and some one to care for again, she said. Residents who dont have pets of their own are encouraged to share Alley, the office cat. At the centers memory care center, a dog, a cat and two bunnies live with a couple of parakeets and a lot of fish. Pet-friendly living centers are still in the minority, so people who dont like ani mals will easily find centers that say No Pets Allowed. But some living centers are cultivating small menag eries. At the Silverado Senior Living center in Encinitas, 25 miles north of San Diego, residents have min iature horses and for sev eral months every year, a very young kan garoo, said Steve Winner, co-founder and chief of culture for the companys 23 centers in six states, including Illinois and Texas. Theyve had a pot-bellied pig, chinchillas, guin ea pigs and even a llama until he got too big, said Winner, who esti mated that 20 per cent of their new residents move in with pets. When its time to walk the dogs, a staff mem ber might play Who Let the Dogs Out by Baha Men as a signal that its time to put leashes on the dogs. Kogan founded a proto type program called Pets Forever, a Colorado State class where students earn credits while helping elder ly and disabled pet owners care for their animals. As people grow old, they lose relatives and friends, maybe some of their mobil ity, their jobs and homes. So pets become increasing ly important, Kogan said. The relationship between a person and a pet may be the only thing an older person has left, she said. Clients will often say their pets are the reason they try to continue liv ing, she said. These pets really give them meaning and value in life, a purpose for getting up in the morn ing.ASSOCIATED PRESSDoris Knopp feeds a carrot to a miniature horse at the Si lverado Senior Living Center recently in Encinitas, Calif. At the senior center, residents are encouraged to bring their pets. Everything from miniature horses to chinchillas can be found on the grounds, and residents benefit from frequent contact with the pets.

R LAFFMOBB Presents (N) Gigolos Sunset Place STARS: Repeat Sunshine State win Continued From Page 1Band Gilchrist Gunners on Saturday. The Stars took care of the Starke Tigers in Sundays semifinal game. Derontay Levy led the scoring in the champion-ship game with 25 points. Terrious Baker scored 19 and Derontae Jordan scored 14. Trey Miller, DAngelo Perry and Dedrick Vanover each chipped in five points. The Columbia County Recreation Department sponsors USSSA basket-ball teams for sixthand ninth-graders, but there was nothing for those play-ers in the in-between years. This 13-under team won at the Sunshine State Games last year. Team manager and sponsor Deidra Vanover decid-ed to do something about the gap. These kids have been playing together for 3-4 years and I said we have got to keep them together, Vanover said. I researched how to form a team and I did it. I got some local sponsors. Family and friends in the community have sponsored four tournaments so far. The Stars began tournament play at the Kings Classic in Gainesville in late March and early April. They did not scratch in the standings, but placed second in the Gainesville Stampede tournament two weeks later. Ricky Jernigan paid for the teams trip to the Disney Classic, where the Stars won their pool but lost by five points in the playoff round. Vanover is the granddaughter of Coach Richard Anders, and had some sway in recruiting coaches for the Stars. Troy Ivery is the head coach, and Derek Anders and Darryl Jones are assistants. Ivery, known then as Latroy, and (Doc) Jones played for Columbia High. Anders is Deidras brother. We had to get it ready in two weeks and the biggest thing was to try and find a coach, Vanover said. Troy and Darryl dont have kids on the team, but they have given their time and dedication. Vanover keeps a portfolio on all the players that includes their progress reports from school. We dont require academics, they just automati-cally do it, Vanover said. If they are starting out with good grades, there is no reason for it to stop. All maintain their academics and I am very proud of all their grades. The Church of Jesus Christ Chapel on Old Country Club Road gave the Stars use of their indoor basketball facility. The team has recently moved to the outdoor courts at Annie Mattox Park. I love what Im doing with this group of boys, Vanover said. I feel like a mom to all 10 of them. I have been around the sports arena and have got-ten my feet wet a couple of times, so I thought I might as well jump in all the way. If one kid gets noticed and it leads to a basketball schol-arship, I have done my job. It is a great feeling to know you are giving back to the community. A big thanks to my supportive parents for their help in making the team successful. The Stars have their sights even higher. The Tampa Summer Jam Fest is June 16-18, which could lead to a spot in the nation-al tournament. Vanover is seeking help with the $350 entry fee and motel rooms for the players and coaches. We are working on sponsors and will be glad to get any help, Vanover said. Interested parties can call her at 344-2879. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterLake City Stars manager and sponsor Diedra Vanover lo oks through the portfolio on the players in reviewing the Sunshine State Games USSSA tou rnament victory on Wednesday. The Stars went 5-0 in the 13-under division to win Divis ion 1.
DEAR ABBY: My sister Ruth and I spent most holidays dining out together after our families grew up and left home. Ruth died last year and her daughter Lara began inviting me for holidays so I wouldnt be alone. I have tried to decline, but she persists. She insists that I should be with her instead of with friends, although her plans are always tentative and often change at the last minute. Last Christmas she invited me to a commu-nity holiday dinner at 2 p.m. with her friends. At the last minute she called to say wed be dining at her house in the evening instead, which meant I spent the entire day alone doing nothing. The dinner was grim because they were arguing. At Easter, Lara called saying plans were up in the air. At noon on Easter day, she called to say her husbands sister was visit-ing and they planned to hike in the state park and have a picnic -something that I physically cannot do. So, once again, I spent the holiday alone. Should I call Lara and tell her exactly how I feel, or just write a script for the next time she calls? -HAD IT IN THE SOUTHWEST DEAR HAD IT: If youd prefer to spend the holi-days with friends instead of being reminded of sad memories and feeling obli-gated, you should decline Laras future invitations. If your niece pressures you, explain that you have already made plans with friends. Although her heart may be in the right place, from your description of your nieces social skills, they leave much to be desired. Do not allow her to make you feel guilty and change your mind. Your feelings are valid. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am a 45year-old single male with a job I enjoy. Last June, a cousin who is close to my age married for the second time. He married a girl 20 years younger whom he had known less than six months. Although I was unable to attend the wedding, I sent them a nice card with a generous cash gift. I never received a thank-you note for it and although I was offended, I overlooked their rudeness. Six weeks later, my cousins new bride called my place of employment and left an emergency message to phone her. (She left a second one with a neighbor of mine.) Very worried and not knowing what to expect, I called her immediately. The emergency turned out to be a request for a loan of $500. I was angry but tried not to show it. After thinking about it, I agreed to the loan, although my cousins wife had hinted that I should give them a larger amount. We agreed on a repayment plan. I had misgivings about helping them, but some-how my aunt -my cousins mother -became involved. She kept insisting I lend them the money. It has been more than eight months and they have made no effort to pay me back. To make matters worse, they avoid me. My aunt acts as though its all right for them to treat me this way. I am angry, hurt and feel my trust has been betrayed. What do you think I should do now? -USED IN MISSOURI DEAR USED: I think you should write off the loan and thank your lucky stars that you werent conned into giving this deadbeat couple more money. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Surprises will develop when dealing with profes-sional or personal contacts. Dont speculate or take anything for granted. Acknowledge the efforts of others and compromise, if possible. Rely on experi-ence when given a difficult choice. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Attending an indus-try event, trade show or convention will connect you with people who can complement what you are trying to accomplish. A proposition will be worth looking into, but make sure you are clear regard-ing the details. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stop procrastinating and start doing. Expand your interests or turn a skill into a profitable ven-ture. Finding a way to offer what you enjoy doing most will lead to greater satisfac-tion and happiness. Think outside the box. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Visit a friend or go somewhere youve never been before. Embrace new experiences and people who can offer you a dif-ferent perspective on your situation. Negativity is the enemy and will hold you back when opportunity comes along. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Participation will lead to new acquaintances and opportunities. An idea you have can turn into a moneymaker, but before you dole out your own cash, consider alternative ways to expand your plans without jeopardizing your bankbook. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Listen carefully. Someone who is putting you down will be drawing on false information. Look into the facts and get your figures straight if there is money involved, then respond to whats being done or said. Keep your distance. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Show your competi-tive side and you will win whatever challenge you face. Your insight, confi-dence and determination will enable you to make the right moves. Update your image or make self-improvements. Love, travel and communication are highlighted. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take note of what everyone is up to, and you will handle each situation you face like a pro. Dont be afraid to use a little force or to put pressure on someone if required. Size up whats possible and whats not. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Spice things up a bit. Love and romance are highlighted, but so are anger and emotional distress. Make love, not war, and you will have a great day. Sharing your thoughts is fine, but dont push your beliefs on oth-ers. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Dont hem and haw; be precise, and dont take no for an answer. If there is something you really want, do whatever it takes to follow through and make it happen. Being industrious will impress someone who can offer support. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Follow through with your creative ideas and dont be afraid to try new things. As long as you dont overdo it in any way, you will not come up against opposition. Moderation will help you reach your destination. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take one step at a time. Focus on home, fam-ily and the changes that will best suit your needs. Sizing down or lowering your stress is a good place to begin. Plan your strat-egy carefully and you will avoid anyone opposing you. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
