Students in grades 4-8 took their reading tests in April, about the same time as students in grades 5 and 8 were testing for science aptitude. For the most part, district students scored on a par with their contemporaries around the state in both reading and science. Of notable exception were the districts fifth graders, who bested their state counterparts by a considerable margin in sci-ence. Students at Westside and Pinemount Elementary Schools led the way in the effort, bring-ing home average scores of 361 and 341, respectively. The state average for fifth graders was 322. Fort White Elementary School, Columbia City Elementary School, Five Points Elementary School and Eastside Elementary School fifth grade students also scored higher than the state aver-age. Principal Cherie Hill credited the entire Westside Elementary team for the high scores. I am thrilled with the scores and appreciate all the hard work from staff, students and parents, she said. It has been a great year. District eighth-graders did not fare as well in science. Of the four district middle schools, only Fort White Middle School scored higher than the state average of 316, beating that score by a single point. District fourth graders produced a mixed bag of results in English. Both Westside and Columbia City Elementary Schools topped the state average of 213. Westside led the way with a 221 score, while Columbia City students averaged 214. Summers Elementary School and Pinemount Elementary School each equaled the state average of 213. Fifth graders at Westside, Fort White, Eastside, Pinemount, and Columbia City Elementary Schools topped the statewide average of 221 in reading. Westside finished at 231, while Fort White and Eastside each tallied 224. Columbia City and Pinemount each scored 222. Memoriesof D-Day Governor talks jobs in Lake CityBy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comSixty-eight years ago, 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany. More than 9,000 Allied soldiers were killed or wounded, but their bravery allowed troops to invade Western Europe and begin the march to defeat Adolf Hitler. D-Day -June 6, 1944 -is remembered on the pages of his-tory as a turning point in World War II. But for the men who swarmed the beaches toward enemy fire, it is clear, harrowing memory. Two residents of the Robert H. Jenkins, Jr. Veterans Domiciliary Home of Florida share their WWII experiences. Dewey Neidl, 82, said he brother took him to register for the Navy in February 1944 and returned alone. At 17 years old, Neidl went directly into training and ser-vice. I thought we were going for a boat ride, but it didnt end up that way. I got shipped right overseas, he said. They were getting ready for D-Day I guess, Neidl said. Next thing I knew, I was in Normandy, he said. Neidl said he didnt think hed live through the invasion. But Two local vetsreflect on theirroles in history. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City man attacked with a baseball bat in the Walmart parking lot Monday morning was released from the hospital later that night, according to authorities. Emory Alford, 62, of Lake City, was taken to Lake City Medical Center after being struck in the head with a baseball bat. He was later transferred to a Gainesville hospital. He was discharged from the hospital last night around mid-night in stable condition with multiple lacerations, cuts and bruises, said Steve Shaw, Lake City Police Department public information officer. Jacob Lerie Henry Jr., 29, was arrested and faces multiple charges in the attack. Shaw said Henry struck Alford with a wooden baseball bat. Police say the attack, which reports called brutal, was unprovoked. No motive has been established for the attack. Shaw said when Henry was arrested, he declined to talk to authorities. Henry, listed in arrest reports as homeless, was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center Monday afternoon after he eluded authorities for several hours before he was found in an abandoned building. Originally facing burglary of a structure and attempted murder charges in connection with the case, the charges against Henry have been reduced to aggra-vated battery and burglary of a structure. According to Lake City Police Department reports, the inci-dent took place around 9:51 a.m. as Alford was exiting Walmart after shopping and heading to his vehicle at the far end of the park-ing lot. There he was attacked by Henry, who reportedly did not say anything or demand any-thing before he began striking Alford in the head with the base-ball bat, according to police. James Maness, cleaning his car at the car wash on the other side of Southwest Bascom Norris Drive, saw the attack take place and yelled at the suspect to stop and started heading across the street to intervene. Henry then fled on foot, south across U.S. Highway 90, drop-ping the bat he used to attack Alford several rows over in the parking lot.Beatingvictimon themendReleased fromhospital afterattack with bat.FCAT scores a mix of good, bad for local students D-DAY continued on 6AJASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterWorld War II veterans James Barney Burnham (left), 88, a nd Dewey Neidl, 82, discuss their experiences as young men duri ng World War II, including D-Day, where 160,000 Allied troops bravely m et their Nazi adversaries on the beaches of France.JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterFlorida Gov. Rick Scott gestures as he speaks during a r oundtable discussion held at the Florida Gateway Colleges Wilson S. Rivers L ibrary and Media Center on Tuesday. More than 60 city and county officials and business men and women attended the event. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterState Rep. Elizabeth Porter makes a few comments while at th e roundtable discussion. By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comOver 60 local leaders joined Gov. Rick Scott for a round-table discussion on the future of education, job creation and water issues in the state of Florida Tuesday afternoon at the Wilson S. Rivers Library at Florida Gateway College. Attending the meeting were representatives from city and county government, the Economic Development Department, the School District, college administrators, civic groups, the Chamber of Commerce and local business owners. Scott shook the hands of every individual in the room, pausing at every third or fourth person to ask a question or share a quick anecdote. When the governor made his way around the circle of community members to County Commissioner Ron Williams, Williams stood up to compare boots -both he and Scott wore almost identical sleek, black cowboy boots. Scott was introduced to the crowd by President of Chamber of Commerce and Lake City Reporter Publisher Todd Wilson. Wilson noted Scotts plan to provide around 700,000 jobs over seven years for the state of Florida. Currently, Florida is averaging 9,000 new jobs per month. Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce, Dennille Decker, hosted the discussion. Decker delivered a microphone to any individual in the circle who chose to speak. The governor said his focus is threefold: to better educa-tion, to create jobs and to con-trol the size of government. The biggest problem we have in the world is jobs, Scott said. Its not just in the United States, its not just in Florida. Its all over the world. Scott assured the room to call him when having difficulty with state government. My job is to basically make sure that every agency responds, because its your money, its your sales tax dol-lars and its your property tax dollars, Scott said. Todd Powell, Real Estate Director of Plum Creek--owner of the RACEC Catayst site, spoke about the RACEC Catalyst site and the push to gain access to an easement for the CSX rail line from the United States Forest Service. Plum Creeks application was recently denied by the USFS. We may need help with your office on what is the best way to work out a trade, Powell said. Scott assured the group that he would make a call and try and have the issue addressed. Commissioner Williams took the microphone to discuss what he called a monster. Williams spoke emphatically about water issues and spe-cifically the permit issued by St. Johns Water Management Districts to JEA to pump 155 FCAT continued on 3A GOVERNOR continued on 3A BAT continued on 3AMeets withlocal businessleaders at FGC.

Sheryl Crow has brain tumor NEW YORK Sheryl Crow revealed that she has a benign brain tumor, but her rep says its nothing to be alarmed about. The 50-year-old told an audience about her condi tion at a recent concert, but her representative, Christine Wolff, said its very common.

Happy Days cast may get royalties LOS ANGELES A judge has denied a motion by the makers of Happy Days to dismiss claims by several former cast mem bers that they are owed royalties on DVD sales. Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen Whites ruling Tuesday clears the way for a trial on whether actors Anson Williams, Marion Ross, Don Most, Erin Moran and the widow of Tom Bosley may still be owed royalties on the use of their images in DVD packaging. CBS Studios and Paramount Pictures sought to have their claims dismissed, arguing the group was properly paid. Attorney Jon Pfeiffer says the group has received payments for several other types of mer chandise since they sued in April 2011. He says the unpaid royalties are worth an estimated $250,000 to $500,000. ABC filling Glass House with 14 LOS ANGELES The list of contestants for ABCs The Glass House is out, although a legal challenge looms over the upcoming reality show.

AROUND FLORIDA TALLAHASSEE An outside audit offered only educated speculations Tuesday for drastically lower writing scores on this years more rigorous Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. State education officials also released the final batch of FCAT 2.0 scores in other subjects, saying they were better than expected although lower than prior years before the test was made tougher. Preliminary results on the writing exam indi cated only about a third of students would receive a passing grade compared to 80 percent or better last year. The State Board of Education responded with an emergency rule to lower the minimum grade. That increased the passing percentage to about what it was in 2011. The FCAT writing test is given in grades four, eight and 10. FCAT scores are the major component in teacher evaluations and merit pay as well as school grades, which are expected to be released in three or four weeks. The A-to-F grades are used to reward high-performing schools and sanction those deemed failing. Thirdgraders also must pass the FCAT reading exam to be promoted and high school students must pass the 10th grade reading test to graduate, although there are alternatives in both cases. Writing is an inherently subjective process, both in writing itself and in scor ing the products of student writing, the University of Nebraskas Buros Center for Testing said in its audit report. It noted many states dont even test writ ing. In response to the ques tion of why the scores were so low, the report said: There is no way to answer this question with factual accuracy, and hypotheses are educated speculations. One hypothesis is that students got lower marks because the scoring was tougher as part of the effort to strengthen stan dards. Another is that essays used for training and test evaluation were assigned somewhat lower scores than under previ ous standards, resulting in more stringent scoring of the students papers. The report discounted two other possibilities: the essay prompts were simply too difficult and student writing skills had actually declined. As to the latter, the report said: Without a catastrophe having occurred to the state and its educational system, such an explanation would defy logic and experience. Group questions retention theme TALLAHASSEE A Georgia-based conserva tive legal foundation is raising questions about a campaign to keep three state Supreme Court jus tices on the court. A top lawyer for the Southeastern Legal Foundation says the jus tices may be violating eth ics rules because they are raising money and urging voters to keep them on the bench. Voters this fall will give an up or down vote on whether Justices Fred Lewis, Barbara Pariente and Peggy Quince deserve a new term. Dan Stengle, legal counsel for the retention campaigns of the three justices, contends that that a group known as Restore Justice 2012 is mounting an opposition campaign so the campaigning is legal. But the head of that group argues his organiza tion is educating voters and not asking people to vote for or against the jus tices. Police chief punishes officers MIAMI Miamis police chief is cracking down on officers who speed while off duty. Chief Manuel Orosa announced Monday that hes taking action against 36 officers. The South Florida Sun Sentinel (http://sunsent. nl/KaE6Wl ) reports that the first wave of disciplin ary action includes Officer Fausto Lopez, who man made headlines after leading a state trooper on a high-speed chase through Broward County in October. Lopez is being suspended for a month and will lose his take-home car for three months. Other officers face pun ishments that include for mal reprimands, suspen sions and loss of vehicle privileges. Orosa says he plans to fire at least one officer identified as a habit ual speeder and is equip ping 40 police vehicles with GPS devices to make sure the worst offenders slow down.

Only Lake City Middle School and Fort White Middle School sixthgraders compared favor ably with their state coun terpart, with both schools equaling the statewide average score of 225. Lake City Middle School seventh graders paced their way for their age group, beating the statewide aver age score in reading by a single point, 232-231. Eighth-graders at both Fort White and Lake City Middle Schools produced better than average scores in reading. Fort White stu dents finished with a 239 average, while Lake City Middle School students brought home a 238 aver age. The statewide average was 237. Columbia County School District Supt. Mike Millikin said he was pleased with the performance of county students, but cautioned not to make too much out of the scores until state adjust ments for new tests are com puted. FCAT tests have been altered somewhat the past two years, and scores cannot necessarily be compared to the previous years scores without some adjustment. Generally speaking, we are pleased with the initial results, he said. It appears that in some areas we are better than the state, some equal to the state and some below the state. There are some areas of concern in some schools that we will be addressing during a county wide workshop next week. Millikin added that his accountability staff is still looking at the data, and that once all the figures have been considered, they will know more about the perfor mance of Columbia County students. We want to compare how well we did last year with how well we did this year, he said. The test has changed. The way the test is scored has changed. Those scores have to be retrofitted by the state before we can assess them.

To make your initiative work, we as North Florida and Columbia County are ready to step up to the plate, along with our private partners, to devel op jobs for Columbia County and the state of Florida but we cannot do it without water, Williams said. Water is the key ingredient to make this work. Williams address brought applause from the roundtable group. There isnt one area of Florida that doesnt have issues with water, Scott replied. Again, Scott said he would make a call to have the issue addressed. Your issue on water manage ment, if you get it to me, Ill get it dealt with, he said. Other community leaders spoke about the relationship between state and local govern ments, the involvement of the school system with local busi ness and the unique economic resources that Columbia County already has within its borders. County Economic Development Director Jesse Quillen said there was a definite benefit for the community from Scotts visit. Having come from Mississippi and Alabama, much smaller states, you didnt see this kind of interaction typically, Quillen said. So this is really good for the community, to be able to interact with Governor Scott. Quillen said he believed Scott was sincere and would come through on the actions he said he would take to contribute to the local economy. Mayor Stephen Witt called a government a huge ship. Its hard to move, Witt said. But thats one reason why its still here. You make changes incre mentally, Quillen said. Even though you know you need to be over there you only take one step kind of to get there. Its frustrating sometimes, but thats just the way government works. (Gov. Scott) recognizes it though and as long as hell maintain a pro-business attitude, well be fine. Gov. Scott said he was opti mistic about the future of the state, though he insisted we cant go down the path were going down. If we cant grow the state, then our kids dont have any chance, Scott said.

Arrest Log By HANNAH O. BROWN email@example.com After a third public hear ing, the Charter Review Commission voted on six proposed amendments for the county charter. Two amendments failed and four will move for ward for a future on the November ballot. Amendment One, which proposed the addition of two at-large county commission ers, and Amendment Four, which called to the remove the obligation to provide agendas and supplementary materials for county board meetings online, were not approved for the ballot. The remaining four amendments will move forward to be voted on in November. Chairman Koby Adams appointed five charter mem bers to serve on a subcom mittee for a plan for public education about the amend ments. David Morse, Sherree Vann, Kim Skinner, Bettye Lane and Ozell Graham will serve on the committee. Graham said he was disap pointed in the lack of inter est from the public, saying he believed only about 30 percent of county residents know about the charter. We have the responsi bility of letting the public know and getting this infor mation, Graham said. Graham, who served on the original charter review commission, said he believed the charter has helped the county. I think this county is far better with the charter, he said.

ONE OPINION Parties should pay for their own conventions LETTERS TO THE EDITOR This is in response to the Letter to the Editor published on June 3, 2012. First, let me explain that I am also a veteran who served two tours in Korea and three in Vietnam. Having said that, I object to Mr. Andersons gib-berish references to many of todays political heroes; G.W. and Jeb Bush, Dick Cheney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Mitt Romney, Bill OReilly, Karl Rove, Donald Trump, Dennis Miller and Ted Nugent. I would like to point out that he missed a major segment of political constitutionalists that I would like to recognize, such as Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Michele Bachmann, Michele Malkin, Jan Brewer, Nikki Haley, Dana Perini, Liz Chaney and many others. May our country con-tinue to produce such patriots that we can all honor for their contributions to the protection of our country. My personal contribution is small compared to others.Wilbur G. CorbittLake CityI love the train People cant find work; they lost their homes, swallowed their American pride and reluc-tantly signed up for food stamps and other government assis-tance. America is in moral and economic decline. We have been divided along social, racial, mon-etary, ethical, gender, religious and cultural lines in the last four years. We have embraced our enemies and stiff-armed our friends. Now we face the dread-ed CSX warning horn. We must silence the once precious sound that all children who would say, a choo-choo Mommy. Please sir, seek other avenues to solve your petty complaint of an unnecessary train horn. Sir, please consider moving, going to therapy, or using the $1,400 you offered to the railroad to sound proof your home. We love the railroad and historic sound of the warning horn.

Christian Herren Jr., head of the voting section of the Justice Departments Civil Rights Division, sent a letter to Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner warning him to cease efforts the state was making to validate its voter rolls. Specifically, Justice said it was concerned that the Sunshine States efforts to clean up the registration lists would violate provisions of the 1973 Voting Rights Act and that the states actions would have a dis-criminatory effect. The law cov-ers five Florida counties in which there had been historical cases of voter discrimination. Florida immediately fired back. We are firmly commit-ted to doing the right thing and preventing ineligible voters from being able to cast a ballot, a spokesman for Mr. Detzner said. We are not going to give up our efforts to make sure the voter rolls are accurate. If the 2012 race is close, the potential impact of fraudulent votes is magnified. The Florida case is especially illustrative. In the contested 2000 vote count, George W. Bush won the state and thus the presidency by just 537 votes. Two weeks ago, Florida found and removed 53,000 dead people from its voter lists. The Justice Departments attentions are misplaced. Guaranteeing the legitimacy and legality of elections is a compel-ling interest of the states, and a power explicitly granted them by the Constitution. In effect, the nations chief law-enforcement agency is ignoring the massive problem that Florida has uncov-ered in favor of focusing on imag-ined discrimination as the state seeks to rectify it. The fact that Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.s department is seeking to prevent the purge of Hispanic illegal voters, who can be count-ed on to vote mostly for Barack Obama, gives the whole affair an awful whiff of dirty politics. I ll-informed or cynical poli-ticians may ridicule the threat of climate change, but wiser public servants, disciplined environmentalists, enlightened industry leaders and international groups are focused on the serious busi-ness of looking for solutions. A case in point: a report released last week that reviews the development of so-called unconventional gas natural gas trapped in layers of slate and other dense rock formations and methane gas trapped in seams of coal. These gases release far less destructive carbon when they burn than oil or coal. The report, Golden Rules for a Golden Age of Gas, deserves close examination. It is the work of the respected International Energy Agency, an independent body created 37 years ago within the frame-work of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development based in Paris. The 150-page report is detailed and complex. It looks at geology, economics, sociology, chemistry and the mechanics of drilling and extraction, including the controversial process of hydrau-lic fracturing or fracking. It places special emphasis on the crucial importance of preventing environmental dam-age to air, water and land and to protecting human health. Industry can keep those very real dangers to a bare minimum, the report stresses, with existing technologies that are relatively inexpensive. But ensuring long-term safety requires muscular government regulations some relevant new ones were finalized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in April that are enforced fairly and rigorously. The reports golden rules urge full transparency, measur-ing and monitoring of environ-mental impacts and engagement with local communities.... The report calls for setting and meeting high standards of well design, construction and integ-rity testing to prevent leaks of chemicals and other pollutants into water supplies. The Golden Rules report estimates that meeting strict environmental standards for unconventional gas production would add only about 7 percent to the cost of one typical shale gas well. It also notes that gas producers almost always devel-op multiple wells on a single site, offering significant econo-mies of scale and cost reduc-tions for regulatory compliance. By following the golden rules, the report maintains, industry would build a record of environmental performance and public acceptance that would earn it a social license to operate. That, in turn, would allow unconventional gas pro-duction and use to continue to expand, displacing oil and coal use that worsens climate change. The specific cost estimates and the golden rules concept may be new, but the issues explored in the IEA report are not. Most were covered in a report and recommendations submitted by a shale-gas advi-sory committee to U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu last November. In December, one of the committee members, Fred Krupp, president of the Environmental Defense Fund, told EDF sup-porters that unconventional gas could serve as an intermediate step between dirty fossil fuels and clean renewable energy. This is a really important opportunity for our country, he told them, if we get it right. And thats a big if. Mr. Krupp has it right. T he two major parties political conven-tions are delightful anachronisms. The candidates are generally known well in advance: In President Barack Obamas case, having no challengers, since January 2009; in the case of Mitt Romney, who did have challengers, since May, almost three full months before the GOP convention. Arguably the last seriously contest convention was 1976 when Ronald Reagan challenged President Gerald Ford, losing by a fairly tight 1,187 to 1,070 margin that left the incumbent badly nicked up. Platform fights are almost a thing of the past. It has been left to demonstrators and protesters of assorted stripes to add some color and noise to the proceedings but ever-tighter security keeps them ever farther from the conven-tion halls. The conventions have become four-day commercials and airing of political egos for the two parties. That being true, some in Congress are question-ing why the taxpayers should pay for any of this. They pay through the Presidential Election Campaign Fund by checking a box on their tax returns to voluntarily contribute $3. But in 2008 candi-date Barack Obama set a prec-edent by declining public fund-ing and, given the vast amounts of unregulated campaign cash sloshing around the system, its doubtful any other candidate will accept public funding. The public money available for the conventions is about $18.3 million per party. Sens. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., and Mark Udall, D-Colo., have a bill that would ban future taxpayer con-tributions to the party conven-tions and ask that they return any money theyve already received so it can be applied to the national debt. As of now, the two parties have declined to do so. They have received influential support from Sens. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., and Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., the chairman and ranking minority member on the Budget Committee. The $36.6 million goes for lodging, meals, badges, buttons, promotional films, flags, sou-venirs and even teleprompters. All this is very nice but hardly essential to the functioning of our democracy. Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service.

The fish knocked her unconscious and the impact knocked her out of the boat. Witnesses report ed that the fish was about 60-70 pounds, investigators said. Steven Megargel jumped into the water to rescue her, while his son operated the 1998 17-foot Silver King vessel. The two of them got her back on the boat and took her to Manatee Springs State Park.

I did come through OK, I guess. It was all shooting and fighting when the troops stormed the beach, he said. With loud blasts overhead, Neidl said he thought of home. But you never expect that youre gonna be home. They were shooting the main artillery at us, so we opened up on them, he said. Holy cow, shells fly ing over your head. You dont know what the hell is going on. You dont sleep half the time. You dont eat half the time. See your friends get killed, a lot of them had a wife and kids, he said. While on a destroyer, Neidl said they sank ships, but he felt for those men. You figure theyve got a wife and kids too, same as we did. But its either them or me, he said. Shortly after returning from war, Neidl said he received a letter, threat ening jail if he didnt pay income taxes within 10 days. Just married with a baby on the way, Neidl said he had to borrow about $100 to pay. Thats the welcome home you get, he said. Earlier troops did not have to pay income tax and Neidl said he didnt even know what it was at the time. Neidl said he is thankful to not have been seriously injured while fighting. His hearing went bad from being positioned next to big guns during the inva sion, he said. His earplugs fell out, but there wasnt time to look for them, he said. Often on lookout duty, binoculars hurt his eyesight, he said. It left me half-blind and half-hearing, but there was other ones worse. I look at it that way, he said. When he returned home, Neidl said worked in metal manufacturing and landscaping. After the war, he said, nobody seemed to want to help you. They do now, but its too late now. Neidl has two sons, Gary, who retired from the Marines, and Wayne. Neidl said he has seen movies about D-Day, but they cant be anything like the real war. Seeing your friend blown up, its nothing like a movie. They cant make a movie thats like the real stuff, he said. After the war, Neidl said he as jumpy. Loud, sudden noises made him draw back, ready to fight. Its a hell of a thing getting over that, he said. Im not looking to be a hero, I just done what a lot of other guys done, Neidl said. Im glad its all over with. **** Barney Burnham, 88, landed on five hostile beaches while serving in the Navy during WWII. Although he did not land in Normandy, the inva sions he participated in were nonetheless gutwrenching. When the Allies invaded Sicily in July 1943, Burnham of Jasper said his flat-bottomed Higgins boat headed toward the beach at 4:30 a.m. Weighed down with a rifle, helmet, gas mask, ammunition and rations, I stepped off the raft and I went under head and ears, he said. Burnham said he sank to the bottom and pushed off, repeating until he the water was no longer over his head. On the beach, Burnham drove a modified bull dozer during invasions and pushed boats back into water if they got stranded while unloading. It was a monster and I looked like a flea sitting on it, he said. My job was to clear that beach as fast as I could to keep everything moving because they had to have supplies, he said. Once after unloading the ships, Burnham said the troops started to expand and captured 1,500 Germans. They were some mean looking Germans but also there were some mean looking Americans, he said. We were reput edly the meanest outfit in the Navy, he said of the 4th Beach Battalion.If we didnt have Germans to fight, we fought each other, he said. Burnham recalled see ing a German plane drop a bomb and destroy several stone buildings near the beach. It made your hair stand on end, because I knew there was a number of Americans that had moved in the buildings to have someplace to lay down. Walking by, he saw bod ies lying in the rubble. It made you wanna cry. I never did find out how many was killed, but there was a number of them and Im glad their family wasnt there to see them, he said. Landing on the beach of Salerno, Italy, Burnham said an officer almost shot him. Afraid, the man, mis took him for the enemy, he said. Burnham said he saw an Army bulldozer, building a road for heavy artillery, catch fire just 100 feet away after an explosion. The fire killed the opera tion and his relief man. The operator burned to ash, just wilted away down around the controls, Burnham said. I still think of him, even to this day, Burnham said. His company experi enced 70 percent causali ties, he said. Losing com pany members and friends was sickening, he said. Why would anybody want to start a war? he said. After it was all over, we realized other invasions were a lot rougher, he said. I was lucky enough not to get wounded in Europe, but I stopped a piece of metal in Okinawa, he said. The metal is embed ded in his left wrist and hit a blood vessel. It was a mean piece of metal, he said. Near ligaments, nerves and blood vessels, doctors thought it was best to leave the metal in his arm. I brought home a sou venir from Japan, a piece of hand grenade, he said. Burnham was born in Arcadia and lived in Hamilton County. The house my grandfather built is still there in Hamilton County, he said. Growing up during the Depression, Burnham said he left school after fifth grade to work on a farm for 50 cents a day. I hate to tell people thats my education, he said. It was rough going, Burnham said. I hope we never have another one. I dont believe the younger generation could live through it. Returning to the states after the war, the most beautiful site was the Golden Gate Bridge. We sailed underneath it. After the service, Burnham married and attended barber school in Jacksonville. I stood behind one of those chairs 35 years bar bering, he said. Burnham has two children, Sharon Roy of Vermont and Rick Burnham of Jasper. In the early 60s, a friend convinced Barney Burnham to run for mayor of Jasper and he won. While mayor he served as the municipal judge. A fifth-grader hold ing court, can you imagine that? he said. After 30 years of mar riage, Burnham lost his wife, Marjorie, and grand child in a 1976 car accident. Its been a little over 30 years and I never remar ried, he said. In his spare time, Burnham makes and sells wooden walking canes, painting stars and blue and white stripes. Last Veterans Day, Burnham spoke to a large church congregation about his experiences during WWII. I had the great est standing ovation that youve ever seen in your life, he said. That was an experience to me. I brought home a souvenir from Japan, a piece of hand grenade. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL WEDNESDAY JUNE 6, 2012 6A Same Day Service Includes Saturday Lake City Lake City Commons Center (Publix Shopping) 752-3733 Carrying Vera Bradley CONTA C TS EY E EXAM S by Independent O ptometrist 2 Complete Pair Eyeglasses $ 119 Includes Lenses & Frames Some Restrictions Apply.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comWith a 1-under finish at the NCAA Championship at Riviera County Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif., Blayne Barber may have just capped a remarkable collegiate career. Its a career that ended with a Division I PING First-Team All-American honor for the first time in his career. Barber was named a second-team All-American as both a freshman and sophomore. Barber finished in the topfive seven times this season and finished in the top-20 11 times. He led Auburn in rounds at par or better (21), sub-par rounds (16) and rounds in the 60s (11). Barber was proud of how he capped off his career with a top-10 finish at the NCAA Championships. It was a great week and obviously Riviera is a tough golf course, he said. I felt that I played pretty well. The first day I played extremely well without a bogey and the second round I did a pretty good job of recov-ering after being 4-over through seven holes. I had a double to start and fought back pretty hard. It could have been a little lower, but I misread a couple of putts slightly. Overally, I was very pleased. Barber has plans to go professional now that hes graduated from Auburn, but he does have a year of eligability left if he decides to come back. I graduated with a degree in finance, but have one year left, he said. I plan to turn pro this fall Florida State continues to lean on freshmenBy BRENT KALLESTADAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Mike Martin has coached Florida State for 33 seasons and never began any of them with more questions about his team than this year. The 68-year-old Seminole skipper replaced longtime pitching coach Jamey Shouppe following the 2011 campaign and rebuilt the teams pitching staff around freshmen Brandon Leibrandt and Mike Compton. New pitching coach Mike Bell and Martin agreed that the two newcomers were too hard to ignore. We didnt make the decision to go with them until we were in the middle of the spring, Martin said. Those two guys are the most impressive pitchers that weve got. They outperformed just about anyones wildest hopes with a combined 19-4 log heading into this week-ends best-of-three NCAA super regional against Stanford. Leibrandt went eight scoreless innings and Compton allowed just one earned run in six innings as they each notched wins over a hard-hitting Samford club last week to propel the Seminoles to their fifth straight super regional. The key has been their composure, Martin said. Theyve shown great poise and the ability to go to the next pitch and not dwell on the error made behind them or a home run that was hit. Martin said Bell deserves a lions share of the credit for the rapid development of the young pitchers. Compton, who is from Branson, Mo., came to a Florida State baseball camp over the Christmas holi-days during his junior year in high school and immediately caught Martins eye. Id never heard of him, Martin said. He just showed up. I noticed that he throws a really heavy ball and we started recruit-ing him. Compton (11-2, 2.78) and Leibrandt (8-2, 2.65) baffled Samford during the region-al. Leibrandt, son of former big league pitcher Charlie Leibrandt, fanned 10 and scattered three singles in eight scoreless innings while Compton allowed just one earned run in the tournament clincher. Leibrandt, a lefty like his dad, benefits from the big league lineage, Martin said. He was taught that this game is what it is, Martin said. He doesnt get frus-trated when things dont go right for him. Thats the key to being a good pitcher. The two youngsters just need to keep their team in the game since they have one of the college games top finishers on standby. The Seminoles lights-out closer, Robert Beinincasa (4-1, 1.29), pitched the ninth in both games and now has 15 saves. Hes fanned 48 in 29 innings. Florida State (46-15) hosts the best-of-three tournament starting Friday against a Stanford (41-16) and its hard-throwing ace, Mark Appel (10-1).

Shelton Keen had the hot hand this week as he posted wins in both the Wednesday Blitz and the Friday Dogfight. In the Wednesday Blitz, Keens +7 performance outdistanced the field. Pete Skantzos was second at +5 and Ronnie Ash was third at +3. One skin winner were Dale Coleman, who had the pot hole but was not in the pot so it rolls over. The rest of the skins went to Frog Niewisch, Skantzos, Ash and Chet Carter with two. In the Friday Dogfight, Keen bested the field with a solid +9 with Joe Herring took second place with +7. Closest to pin winners were: Bob Wheary, Ponds Nos. 3 and 5; Joe Herring, Creeks No. 6; Keen, Creeks No. 8. Skin winners were Keen (3), Herring (3), Ronnie Ash (2) and Jack Tuggle (3). The Wednesday scramble came down to a fam-ily affair as Chet Carter and Ralph Minster edged out Tiara Carter and Todd Carter for the win. The pot rolled over. In Sundays scramble, the team of Bob Wheary, Phillip Russell and Wallace Christie cruised to the win with a solid 7-under. There were a lot of chances for the big pot. It was not to be as lucky No. 7 was drawn and no one birdied the tough hole, so the big pot will roll over again. The bigger pot will be in play in two weeks, as this Sunday there will be no scramble due to the Quail Shoot tournament. Spots are still available to enter the Campus USA Quail Shoot. The format is two-day two-person best ball. There is a $10,000 putting contest and one golfer will be chosen from the field to take a Million Dollar shot. It should make for a very exciting weekend.

He hasnt set a goal for after turning pro, but he does see the PGA Tour in his future. The ultimate goal is to play on the PGA, he said. I havent really developed a plan to play in any tournaments. I dont really know what the future holds other than having a fun summer. Barber looks back on transferring to Auburn after his freshman season as one of the best decisions hes made for his future. Transferring with coach (Nick) Clinard has been amazing, he said. God led me to where I was meant to be and I loved every moment. Coach Clinard has made me into a better golfer every day.

Momentum shift has Oklahoma City a win shy of NBA finalsBy JEFF LATZKEAssociated PressOKLAHOMA CITY The Oklahoma City Thunder have gone from fighting for survival to the brink of the NBA finals. Less than a week after facing an 0-2 hole that only 14 NBA teams have overcome, the Thunder head into Game 6 of the Western Conference finals on Wednesday night needing only to protect their home court to advance and play for the title. The Spurs were riding a 20-game winning streak when Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks made a series of defensive adjust-ments, including stick-ing Thabo Sefolosha on All-Star point guard Tony Parker. San Antonio still hasnt recovered and now must become the first road team to win at Chesapeake Energy Arena this postseason to keep playing. Brooks said Tuesday that even the Thunders per-fect home record doesnt guarantee us automatic victory. ASSOCIATED PRESSNovak Djokovic of Serbia celebrates winning his quarte r final match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France at the French Open tennis tournament in Ro land Garros stadium in Paris on Tuesday. Djokovic won in five sets 6-1, 5-7, 5-7, 7-6, 6-1. Djokovic saves 4 match points in win over TsongaBy EDDIE PELLSAssociated PressPARIS Four times, the stands at Roland Garros were ready to erupt, a beloved Frenchman stand-ing one point from beating the worlds top player and ending his quest for his-tory. Four times, Novak Djokovic had an answer for Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. And so, instead of Tsonga Time at the French Open, Djokovic is still on the road to the Novak Slam. Top-seeded Djokovic overcame four match points, to say nothing of the wildly partisan crowd, for a 6-1, 5-7, 5-7, 7-6 (6), 6-1 victory over Tsonga that ended near twilight Tuesday in front of driz-zle-soaked stands that had quickly emptied after the match points vanished and the final set had become academic. There is not really any rational explanation or word that can describe what youre supposed to do when youre match points down or youre very close to losing the match, Djokovic said. I guess its trying to be men-tally tough and believing in your shots. Djokovic did and got the win his 26th straight in the majors. After he converted his first match point a back-hand winner down the line Djokovic leaned back and pumped his fists over and over. Tsonga, the No. 5 seed who had dreams of becoming the first Frenchman to win his countrys Grand Slam since Yannick Noah in 1983, sat with his head buried in a towel, while the few fans left chanted his name. It was the end to a remarkable day of tennis that included third-seeded Roger Federers come-back from two sets down for a 3-6, 6-7 (4), 6-2, 6-0, 6-3 win over No. 9 seed Juan Martin del Potro. It marked Federers seventh career rally from down two sets to love. After both the winners rest their legs, theyll meet with a spot in the final on the line. Well, Im very disappointed for Jo, Federer said. I would have loved to play him here in Paris. I have a feeling that the crowd would have loved to see such a match. For him, its a disappointment. As for me, its nothing dif-ferent as from last year. Im playing Djokovic in the semifinal. Djokovics last Grand Slam loss came against Federer in that semifinal last year a defeat that ended the Serbs 43-match winning streak. If Federer does it again, hell set the stage for his 17th Grand Slam tourna-ment title, but his first since the 2010 Australian Open. Djokovic, meanwhile, will try to set up a chance to join Rod Laver and Don Budge as the only men to hold all four Grand Slam titles at the same time. The good thing is that we both have two days off now to rest, Djokovic said. And I hope to have anoth-er great match like we did in 2011. Its always a big challenge to play Roger. Hes a fantastic player, a big champion. By saving all those match points, Djokovic may have reminded tennis fans of the stunt he pulled at the U.S. Open last year. Federer held two match points in the semifinal of that one. Djokovic turned hard on Federers wide serve on the first one for a clean winner, then on the second, fought off a serve into his body to win the point. He then rolled off four straight games to set up a meeting in the final against Rafael Nadal. Djokovic was just as aggressive with his back against the wall this time, never more than on the first match point, where he went for it on an overhead that skimmed the base-line, then moved in to put away an easy volley. He saved another one while serving down 5-4, then two more while serving from behind at 6-5. By the time he had closed out the fourth-set tiebreaker, the French fans had an idea of where things were going next. They started vacating and Djokovic needed only 32 minutes to win the fifth set and close out a match that took 4 hours, 9 minutes.
DEAR ABBY: Im a 28-year-old, newly single female who has never been happier. Ive had a couple of long-term relationships that didnt turn out well, so my quiet, uncomplicated life is refreshing. All Im looking for now is to make new friends and enjoy myself. A few guys have asked me for my phone number -usually through social net-working -and have sug-gested getting together for a couple of drinks. As nice as that would be, the last thing I want to do is lead anyone on or give him the wrong impression. When I do decide to start looking, it will be for no one less than my Prince Charming, and I dont regard any of them as that. What and when is the best way to tell guys that, as much as I enjoy their company, I am look-ing only for friendship at this time? I live in a relatively small town, so going out with different men on a regular basis gives people the wrong idea about me. -WANTS ONLY FRIENDSHIP IN MICHIGAN DEAR WANTS ONLY FRIENDSHIP: I under-stand your feelings, but please allow me to point out that meeting Prince Charming can be an acci-dent of luck and timing. In addition to that, he doesnt always come dashing forth on a white horse -some-times its an old clunker. If you announce to any man who asks you out for a couple of drinks that youre interested only in friendship, he will inter-pret it as rejection, so I dont advise you to make that your lead sentence. A better retort might be that rather than going out for drinks, youd prefer to start with coffee and conversation. Who knows? The longer he talks, the more attractive he may become. Stranger things have happened. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My 20-year-old daughter, Roxanne, is attending college in a big city known for its crime rate, unem-ployment and despair. She lives alone in an apartment just off campus. Shes a smart girl, careful and cautious, but I still worry about her to the point of sleepless nights and a general feeling of when something will happen not if. Roxannes apartment was broken into last Christmas. Thankfully, she wasnt there at the time. Since then, my worry has intensified -especially if I dont hear from her for a few hours. We usually text or call each other at least once a day. If I dont hear from her, I panic. My husband calls me a professional worrier and says I need to trust that our daughter is safe. I dont think Ill ever NOT worry about her, and the truth is I really want her to move back home. I realize this would be counterpro-ductive to her achieving success, but I dont know how to let go of the worry. Is this just a mom thing or should I seek help? -HALF-CRAZED MOM IN MICHIGAN DEAR MOM: Its a mom thing taken to the extreme. One of the reasons that children go away to college is so they -and their parents -can learn to live independently from each other. It appears you suffer from a case of parental hypervigilance -and yes, for both your sakes, you should seek professional help. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Separate your emo-tions from your business dealings. Dont give an old flame a second thought. Any personal change you make should be looking forward, not backward. A connection with someone who shares your interests will bring in more cash. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Discuss alternatives with those your decisions will affect, and you will find a way to proceed without opposition. Travel, if it will help close a deal or get better acquainted with a situation you face. Discipline and hard work will pay off. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take greater inter-est in whats going on around you. Pitch in and you will raise your profile and enhance your reputa-tion. Take on a challenge, but dont take chances. Prepare properly, give it your best shot and excel. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Listen to suggestions being made and you will recognize how much you have to offer and how little help you need. Change may be daunting, but once you get moving, you will impress everyone with your ability to adapt and proceed. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Participation will open windows of opportunity, both personally and profes-sionally. Share what you have to offer mentally, emotionally and physically and youll develop a long-lasting relationship with someone special. Love is on the rise. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22): Listen care-fully to whats being said. Problems will occur if you arent precise about what you can and cannot do. Concentrate on doing the best job possible, and avoid unpredictable or unreliable people. Physical activity will relieve stress. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do whatever it takes to boost your confidence or make you feel good, look good and be your best. Visiting a friend, lover or relative will bring you closer together. Dont waste time or money. Set a budget and stick to it. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Focus on creating a space at home that is con-ducive to productivity. A hobby, pastime or interest can turn into a moneymak-er. Present and promote what you have to offer. A partnership with someone you care about will be reinforced. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Your main inter-est should be on making partnerships work. Change your home environment if it isnt conducive to what you want to achieve. Expect confusion or delays while traveling. Dont fold under pressure. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Get together with old friends, or visit a place you havent experienced for a long time. The memo-ries you resurrect will remind you of old goals you can incorporate into new opportunities. Invest in something you want to pursue. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Pay more attention to your surroundings. The people and places around you will make a significant difference to the way you handle your personal and professional life. Love is in the stars and should influ-ence a lifestyle choice you make. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Do your part, but dont overdo it. Participating is one thing, but being taken advantage of is another. Disagreements will devel-op if you dont set bound-aries. Equality is a must if you are going to work in conjunction with others. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
