From staff reportsTwo area residents were arrest-ed Tuesday night when the Columbia County Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force served a search warrant and found methamphet-amine, ingredients used to make methamphetamine and other drug parapher-nalia in an east-ern Columbia County mobile home, accord-ing to authori-ties. Christopher Lee Harper, 31, 168 SE Faye Lane, Lake City was charged with manufacture of methamphetamine, By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comKohl’s Department Stores has expressed interest in expanding to Columbia County, but is looking for an incentive to make the area more attractive, according to Economic Development Director Jesse Quillen. The project would include a $3.5 million capital investment and would provide over 100 new jobs to the area. Kohl’s says its presence in the community will attract other nationally recognized stores. With over 50 locations in Florida, Kohl’s is looking to locate north of US 90, across from Home Depot. “That piece of property is prime for development,” Economic Development Advisory Board member Jeff Simmons said. According to EDAB member Marc Vann, Kohl’s has considered bringing a location to Lake City in the past. “They would have come five years ago if things wouldn’t have stopped,” Vann said. “Lake City has been their spot for a num-ber of years now.” City Manager Wendell Johnson said he was 100 percent behind the project, but cautioned the board that incentives are not ordinarily given to department stores. EDAB member Glenn Owens agreed that the project should be pursued carefully. “I am all for looking at it, but we do have to be cau-tious,” Owens said. EDAB chairman Ron Williams agreed that the project should be cautiously pursued, but said that the county should more aggressively explore retail opportuni-ties. “Retail makes a healthy community also, just like industrial development does,” Williams said. “In the past, this is not the kind of thing you would be considering, but this is a new day,” Quillen said. According to Quillen, the EDAB has the ability to consider and recommend non-recurring incentives for retail establish-ments. Tax abatements and other recur-ring contributions are off-limits to the retail stores as defined by state law. “This trend has surfaced a couple of years ago and it’s going to become more and more frequent,” Johnson said. The board has not made a decision on whether to offer incentives to the company at this point.

So long to a legendLAURA HAMPSON/ Lake City ReporterTerry Sloan of Charles Peeler Construction uses an exc avator Wednesday morning to demolish the former Legends Lounge, 990 SW Main Blvd. Crews should be finished with the demolition this week to make room for a Family Dollar Store to replace a nearby exis ting Family Dollar, said John Peeler. By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comMembers of the Transportation Disadvantaged Coordinating Board remain unsatisfied with a lack of data reported from the Suwannee Valley Transit Authority. “This board hasn’t received anything that you have completed those tasks except that you say you have,” Commissioner Rusty DePratter, chair of the TDCB, said at a Wednesday meeting. Though board member Michelle Giannosa conced-ed, “It’s more than we’ve gotten before. Let’s just be grateful for what we’ve got.” The Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged provides funds to SVTA. After SVTA fell into deep debt because of unpaid ven-dor costs, FCTD agreed to continue providing funds if several stipulations were met by the deadline of June 30. The stipulations included paying vendors, implement-ing Medicaid training with vendors and having the vendors under contract. Director of SVTA Gwendolyn Pra said all items have been met except for the formalizing for con-tracts with outside trans-portation vendors. Pra said she anticipated having the contracts com-pleted by the June 30 dead-line. The Operations Report for the Columbia County Transportation Disadvantaged Service Plan is also still being formu-lated by SVTA. The initial requirement by the state was to submit the report by April 30. “We have a consultant planning service that has been awarded to us by DOT for assistance in writing that plan. We think it’s going to be extremely extensive,” SVTAstillunderfire By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comNew priorities established by Department of Corrections’ offi-cials are aimed at increasing com-munity partnerships, reducing the number of criminals brought back for additional crimes and making the most of state funding in tough budget years. Wednesday morning more than 40 community members, including state and local politicians, represen-tatives from the business commu-nity and residents, learned about services provided at Columbia Correctional Institution during a community partnership meeting. The meeting, which was set to begin around 9:30 a.m. lasted past 1 p.m. and featured a tour of the facility’s dorms, as well as a series of presentations detailing programs offered at the facility. Don Davis, Columbia CI warden, said the meeting was the facility’s annual community partnership meeting. “We want the community to know what we do, what we offer and that we’re also working for them everyday and in turn, we need their help,” he said. State Rep. Elizabeth Porter, state Sen. Steve Oelrich and Department of Corrections officials were in attendance as well as facility ven-dors who hire some former inmates through a work release program. “It’s important to get those people in here and tell them that, ‘Without you, we don’t make it’,” Davis said. “Without their assis-tance it doesn’t work.” Columbia Correctional DOC sets new priorities, new goals TONY BRITT/ Lake City ReporterColumbia Correctional Institution Sgt.

A story in Wednesdays Lake City Reporter suggested other wise. PEOPLE IN THE NEWS Daily Scripture Celebrity Birthdays AROUND FLORIDA TALLAHASSEE Former Gov. Jeb Bush says Connie Mack IV is his choice in Floridas Republican primary race for the U.S. Senate. Bush called the Fort Myers congressman a principled conservative in a statement released Wednesday. Mack has steadily been pulling in endorse ments from prominent Republicans including pre sumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Bush, though, remains one of most popular personalities among Republicans in Florida and the nation. Mack, whose father also served in the U.S. Senate, is one of several candidates running in the Aug. 14 Republican primary for the right to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson. Womens groups registering voters ORLANDO Two voting rights groups said Wednesday they are ready to resume their inter rupted registration efforts just days after winning a federal injunction against a Florida law they believe was aimed at suppressing minority and youth votes. Last week U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle tem porarily blocked parts of Floridas new election law that place restrictions on voter registration drives. He said the provisions signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Scott made voter registration drives risky business, and said the practice is protected under the First Amendment. Among other things, the law had required groups to submit registration forms they collected within 48 hours or face $1,000 fines. Hinkles ruling means reg istration organizers once again will have 10 days to submit voter forms. Deirdre Macnab, president of the League of Women Voters Florida chapter, said Wednesday that winning the injunction was the first step in elimi nating barriers to Florida voters access to the polls. Justice will not allow these block the vote laws, Macnab said. We have a critical national election before us. We want to make sure that every eligible Floridian is heard. LeMieux qualifies for Senate race TALLAHASSEE Former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux has saved a little postage and gotten some media exposure by person ally toting his qualifying papers to Tallahassee. The Fort Lauderdale Republican on Wednesday was the last of the major Senate candidates to qualify but the only one who showed up in person at the Florida Division of Elections. LeMieux, who was appointed to the U.S. Senate by then-Gov. Charlie Crist, was passing through town while on a campaign swing through the Florida Panhandle. Sen. Bill Nelson, a Melbourne Democrat, who is seeking re-election had his qualifying papers deliv ered Monday. 2 cops save drowning infant SARASOTA Authorities say two Sarasota police officers helped save an infant from drowning in a backyard swimming pool. Spokesman Paul Sutton says officers Kurt Dever and Carmen Woods arrived at the home Tuesday as the father was pulling the 11-month-old boy from the pool. The baby was uncon scious and not breathing when the officers got to the home. Sutton says they started performing CPR and the child spit up water and began breathing. The Sarasota HeraldTribune reports the offi cers drove the parents and the child to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, where he is expected to recover. The childs name was not released and further details werent immedi ately available. Justices hear traffic argument TALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court is considering a proposal requiring judges to warn traffic court defendants they have a right to remain silent. A Florida Bar committee lawyer Wednesday urged the justices to require the warning by passing a court rule. The Conference of County Court Judges of Florida is opposed. The county judges con tend the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimi nation does not apply to traffic cases because they are civil not criminal infractions.

Ephesians 3:17-19 NIV Jeb Bush endorses Mack in U.S. Senate race NEW YORK Cat Deeley is so convinced that a love connection could result from the new Fox dating show The Choice that she jokes shes ready to buy a fancy hat to have on standby for a wedding. We meet people in all different ways nowadays, on the Internet, through friends ... there has to be a possibility for something to happen, Deeley, an England native, said in a recent interview. The Choice, which premieres Thursday at 9 p.m. Eastern time on Fox, essentially pairs real people with celebrities. Its like The Dating Game meets The Voice. Four stars sit in chairs with their backs turned to a non-celeb who tries to pique their interest. If the celebrities like what they hear, they turn around. The show has three rounds where the contes tants are narrowed down until each star has chosen a date. Cameras follow the pairs on their dates so viewers will be able to see what happened next. Some of the celebri ties who took part are Jersey Shore stars Paul DJ Pauly D DelVecchio and Mike The Situation Sorrentino, reality star Rob Kardashian, actress Carmen Electra, model Tyson Beckford and sing er Joe Jonas. The chemistry between Electra and her date was thunderbolt city, Deeley said. The chemistry was palpable. Archie CEOs end their court fight NEW YORK The two CEOs of the company that publishes Archie comics have ended their New York court feud over control of the comics kingdom. But now some relatives are accusing both sides of wrongdoing. A judge signed off Wednesday on a settle ment between Nancy Silberkleit (SIHL-burklyt) and Jon Goldwater. Theyre co-CEOs of fam ily-owned Archie Comic Publications. The settlement details are confidential. Silberkleit lawyer says the pact restores her Archie post and reputation. An Archie spokesman and a lawyer represent ing the company and Goldwater didnt immedi ately return calls. Goldwater accused Silberkleit of harassing employees. She said he mismanaged the company. Both denied the allegations. New With Friends game NEW YORK Theres no spelling required in Zyngas latest mobile game, Matching With Friends. For those who play the popular, Scrabbleinspired game Words With Friends, the latest title should feel familiar. Instead of using letters to form into words, though, players get groups of col orful blocks that they must match with blocks of the same color. The game is being released Wednesday for the iPhone and the iPad. It will initially be avail able only in Australia and Canada. It will come to the U.S. and other countries in the coming weeks, though Zynga Inc. isnt giving dates yet. Auction of Pulitzer novels NEW YORK First editions of all 93 Pulitzer Prize-winning works of fic tion will be offered for sale at a New York auction next week. Sothebys says the nov els will be sold as one lot at its June 15 books and manuscripts sale. Theyre estimated to bring between $50,000 to $70,000. The seller is a private collector. Notable titles in the col lection include Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck and Humboldts Gift by Saul Bellow. The collection begins with the first Pulitzer for fiction in 1918 for His Family by Ernest Poole.

Institution employs approximate ly 630 staff members with an annual budget of about $32 mil lion. The facility currently houses 2,970 inmates. At the beginning of the meet ing Davis said the three priori ties, as established by the DOC Secretary Ken Tucker, are to change the DOCs image, empha size the importance of re-entry programs and re-evaluation of the current classification procedures for inmates. We want to be transparent, Davis said, noting the DOC wants the public to know they are try ing to give the most services possible with the funding the agency receives. Were focused on getting these guys, when they return to the community, that they are productive members and they dont commit another crime. We want to provide them help while they are here. We want people to know that we are a lot more than a warehouse for inmates. We want to change the publics attitude. When people see somebody from the DOC we want them to see a professional, not as a convict guard. According to information from DOC released at the meeting, state prisons in Florida released 32,000 inmates back into society last year, 294 of them in Columbia County. A constant undertone of the meeting revolved around re-entry services and programs provided to inmates as they prepare for release. We want to send a better per son back than came in, Davis said, noting a lot of the servic es offered are done voluntarily. People that work in these pris ons are just as concerned about public safety as the deputy riding in the car down the road. Theres more aspects of it than just put ting the inmates inside the fence and locking the door.

Q The Orange County Register Q The Washington Times OPINION Thursday, June 7, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A ANOTHER VIEW I t’s a kind of craziness. Over here, in this corner, we have people trying to legal-ize all drugs, even metham-phetamines that contribute to the loss of teeth before they kill you and were once costing society over $23 billion a year. Over here in the opposite corner we have New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg up to some-thing very different. He wants to ban 16-ounce sugary drinks. They help make people fat. I think anything-goes libertarians and quick-to-spank nan-nies are both wrong. Correct policy and common sense reside between the extremes. Like so much in life, the issue is one of degree, not absolutes. But degree matters. While not all illegal drugs are created equal, some are quickly addictive, sure as anything to destroy health and normal func-tioning and fatal if you aren’t really, really careful, which some people aren’t when high. Sellers know that users sometimes burn houses down. They know users sometimes abuse children. But wait, say the liber-tarians, alcohol abusers perform terrible deeds, too. By what logic do we allow the sale of booze and not allow other drugs, they demand to be told. I will tell them, noting first off that alcohol is far more deeply embedded in our culture than any of these other drugs and then pointing out that the pres-ence of one perilous product is no argument for still more, some of which might be far worse. It is true that some politicians are demagogues. Is that an argument for electing more demagogues? Not in my view. James Q. Wilson, the outstanding social scientist who died this past March, had a thoroughgoing response to another libertar-ian argument, the one that says legality would spur no additional use. When supply is greater and prices are lower, people would buy more, he said, backing up his contention with facts and figures. An article by John P. Walters in The Weekly Standard on May 7 made short shrift of many other libertarian arguments. The drug war hasn’t worked, they say. Yes it has, Walters demonstrates; use has come way down because of it. We are filling prisons with non-violent drug offenders, they say. The argument is overstated, Walters replies; the system focus-es on violent and repeat offend-ers, the percentage of prisoners involved with drug crimes has been declining, and ever more emphasis has been put on treat-ment outside prison walls. Mexico’s drug cartels would dissolve if we legalized drugs in this country, their favored mar-ket, they say. Not true, Walters says; those cartels are involved in a wide range of crimes besides drug selling, and the solution to their demise is effective law enforcement. So now we come to Mayor Bloomberg, who is fighting everyday decisions by everyday Americans to no end, except, as far as I can see, to make things worse. He is in effect saying to New Yorkers they are children who must be watched over by all-wise government curtailing their need for self-responsibility. Yes, it’s true that sugary drinks will help make you fat if you drink enough of them, but so will maybe a thousand other forms of food, and it is obviously the case, as the mayor concedes, that restricting the size of the drink hardly means you cannot pur-chase multiple drinks. What we have here is an exercise in paternalistic pushiness from still another politician who can’t control himself. It seems Bloomberg has routinely ignored restrictions on taking off and landing a thunderously noisy, exhaust-spewing helicopter in the city late at night and on week-ends. Between the federal, state and local governments, it is getting to where nothing is trivial or person-al enough to be left unregulated, meaning that the idea of liberty is becoming a joke. I myself don’t feel like laughing.

He can be reached at SpeaktoJay@aol.com. I n a little-noticed ruling Monday, the Supreme Court found no fault with a breathtaking cash grab involving sewage in the city of Indianapolis. The 6-3 decision stinks in many ways, but not because of the amount of money involved about $300,000. The case highlights how municipal lead-ers and jurists alike have no shame in treating taxpayers with contempt. Nine years ago, about 180 homes were hooked up to the city sewer system. Under Indiana law, each property owner was asked to pay an equal share of the cost. Some paid the full $9,278 up front, while others opted for installment plans seeking as little as $26 a month. The city later decided it didn’t want to collect monthly pay-ments, so it forgave all out-standing debt. As a result, about half of the residents ended up paying $500 or less for their connection. The city refused to return even a dime to those who ended up putting up the full nine grand, claiming it would take far too much effort to cut those checks. Not surprisingly, the taxpayers who were charged 20 times more than their neigh-bors for the same city ser-vice were angry enough to file suit claiming their rights under the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause had been violated. After being tied up in the court system for several years, the high court’s four liberals, swing Justice Anthony Kennedy and oddly conservative Justice Clarence Thomas finally denied their claim. Justice Stephen Breyer penned the decision in Armour v. Indianapolis, asserting city leaders could treat one taxpayer differ-ently than another because they had a “rational basis” for doing so. Specifically, because the local govern-ment deserves that money more than the people who earned it, no refunds need to be given. “The city could not just ‘cut checks’ without taking funding from other programs or finding additional rev-enue,” Mr. Breyer explained. The court’s three other conservatives pointed out that the city already has detailed records about who overpaid and by how much. With no practical barrier to providing a refund, the constitutional imperative is clear. As Chief Justice John Roberts put it in the dis-senting opinion, “The Equal Protection Clause does not provide that no State shall ‘deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws, unless it’s too much of a bother.’ “ Liberals may talk a good game about tax fairness, but, in the end, they don’t really mean it. Tax fairness is not really a claim for equality of treatment, but rather about enacting policies that ensure the government maintains an unlimited claim to the wealth created by others. “Fairness” means mayors, city councils and other lawmakers are entitled to an ever-growing share of funds to dispose of in any manner they see fit. That’s why it’s essential that the power of taxation be placed within strict boundar-ies. Genuine fairness is only possible when the govern-ment is limited. W isconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s vic-tory Tuesday against the union-supported recall cam-paign is an encouraging outcome and potentially a harbinger of state capitals and municipalities throughout the United States enacting similar reforms in how they deal with their employees. Mr. Walker’s success could empower other governors and could signal, as syndicated col-umnist Charles Krauthammer said in an interview on Fox News Channel, “the beginning of the decline of public-sector unions.” Mr. Walker, in his victory speech, recognized the national ramifications of his struggle: “Tonight, we tell Wisconsin, we tell our country, and we tell people all across the globe that voters really do want leaders who stand up and make the tough decisions.” And “tough decisions” are needed in much of the coun-try. Jobless rates, state budget deficits, unacceptable public education outcomes and gov-ernment unduly beholden to public employee unions are challenges far from limited to Wisconsin and many of the ele-ments of Mr. Walker’s Act 10 law in his state would have similarly beneficial results elsewhere. Mr. Walker’s successes in both policy and the recall election, at a minimum, should provide state and local governments with more leverage in efforts to reform employee compensation and retirement benefits that increasingly are overwhelm-ing basic government ser-vices. As the nation now tightens its focus on the November elec-tion, Tuesday’s outcome should propel the need for reforming public employee compensation and pensions into the presi-dential debate – which neces-sarily would aim a spotlight at President Obama’s too-cozy relationship with Big Labor, one of his primary pillars of support. I t has long been a part of American folklore that Uncle Sam has packed away in secret warehouses all sorts of useful and intriguing artifacts -complete World War II jeeps packed in sealed containers, the bodies of dead aliens and their wrecked spacecraft, the crate containing the Lost Ark. That myth turns out not to be totally far-fetched, although some-what less dramatic. In January, NASA got a call from another government agency, the super-secret, spy-in-the-sky National Reconnaissance Office (NRO). Would NASA be interested in having two never-used space tele-scopes as big and powerful as the space agency’s ailing and failing Hubble Space Telescope? Would it? You bet it would. Without a major overhaul, the groundbreaking Hubble Space Telescope, launched in 1990, is nearing the end of its life span, and without a space shuttle NASA has no way of effecting the neces-sary repairs. The likely outcome is a controlled crash into the Pacific. The Hubble’s replacement, the James Webb Space Telescope, is behind schedule -it is not due to be launched for another six years -and at a cost nearing $9 billion. Another telescope, the $1 billion-plus Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope, with an acro-nym like a German sausage, WFIRST, is on hold because of budget problems. However, making use of the NRO’s surplus spy telescopes entails more than just sending a truck to Rochester, N.Y., to pick them up from the warehouse. NASA has no budget for them. They need to be outfitted with space-specific instruments, cam-eras and controls. The telescope chosen for a mission needs to be launched, while the other is held in reserve. And the agency needs a staff of specialists to support the mission. True, Congress has its budget problems and is determined to show that it can be tough on spending, but not allowing NASA to pursue its mission with these windfall telescopes would be a waste of money already spent and a further erosion of the U.S.’s increasingly precarious lead in space exploration.Sewagedecisionsmells bad Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service.

OBITUARIES LIVE OAK-The Suwannee River Water Management District plans to conduct prescribed burning opera tions on up to 4,000 acres of its property within Mallory Swamp through July 13. Those planning recreation al activities on the prop erty should be aware that a portion of the tract may be closed to the public depending upon the burn location and weather. These prescribed burn ing activities are subject to weather conditions. Contractors will conduct the burn using aerial igni tion from a helicopter or ground ignition. Prescribed fire is one of the Districts land manage ment tools to maintain natu ral resources and reduce the risk of wildfire on District lands. Other ben efits of prescribed burns include plant disease con trol, soil nutrient restora tion and aesthetic improve ment. Prescribed burning helps restore and maintain natural vegetative commu nities that occur on District property, said Scott Gregor, District prescribed burn project manager. Additionally, many plant and animal species within those communities depend on this activity to maintain their habitat. Anyone planning rec reational activities in that area should call Edwin McCook or Scott Gregor to confirm if prescribed burning will affect their recreational plans at 386362-1001 or 800-226-1066 (FL only). During pre scribed burn operations signs will be posted and barricades installed to identify areas that are tem porarily closed. The Districts 31,321acre Mallory Swamp tract is located in southeastern Lafayette County. The prop erty is open to the public for recreational activities, which include wildlife view ing, fishing, hunting, bicy cling, hiking, horseback riding and ATV riding.

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, JUNE 7, 2012 7A 7AHEALTH By MATT SEDENSKY Associated Press FORT LAUDERDALE Fighting stage-four ovarian cancer, Carol Delzatto has more doctor appointments than she cares to count. But this day, she is beam ing as Dr. Pamela Sutton comes into sight, greeting her patient and calling her beautiful. Delzatto looks forward to her monthly meeting with the pallia tive care doctor, where she wont be pricked and wont be rushed, just listened to and offered help. Hospitals across the country have been add ing programs in palliative care which focuses on treating pain, minimizing side effects, coordinating care among doctors and ensuring the concerns of patients and their fami lies are addressed at a feverish pace. The field has expanded so rapidly that a majority of American hos pitals now have palliative programs, to the delight of patients who say theyve finally found relief and a sympathetic ear. Palliative care has its roots in the 1970s, but was slow to grow. Several piec es of research helped to advance the cause, though, showing widespread untreated pain in hospitals and nursing homes and the positive impact pallia tive programs had on such patients. Shes not writing. She is just looking at me and listening and feeling, said Delzatto, 67, during her visit to Broward General Medical Center, where Sutton helped start the pal liative care program more than a decade ago. Dr. Diane Meier of Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, who directs the Center to Advance Palliative Care, says one of the disciplines greatest benefits is that it looks at the patient as a whole. Patients see a different person for every single part of their body or every problem. The patient as a whole person gets lost, said Meier, who won a MacArthur fellowship for her palliative work. The patient is a person, not a problem list, not a list of dif ferent organ systems with different problems, not a list of different diseases. So we end up serving in a quarterback role for the entire medical system. In 2000, there were 658 palliative programs in hospitals, according to the Center to Advance Palliative Care, represent ing about one-quarter of American hospitals. By 2009, about 63 percent of hospitals had palliative teams, with a total of 1,568 programs recorded. The field is expected to contin ue growing as awareness and acceptance spreads, just in time to help baby boomers the 78 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964 as they move toward old age and begin developing more serious and life-threatening illnesses. Though the programs and their scope vary widely, a common scenario might look like this: A patient is diagnosed with lung cancer, and a palliative care teams assistance is enlisted from the start, working along side oncologists and other specialists. The palliative team may include doctors and nurses as well as a social worker and chaplain. Together, they coordinate care among the many medi cal professionals, have long consults with the patients and their families to answer questions, and may preven tively prescribe medica tions for likely side effects of treatment, from pain to constipation to nausea. The palliative team has a clear vision of the patients goals and personal philoso phies and, depending on these factors, might help steer them away from treat ments that are determined to be more painful than theyre worth. Though pal liative doctors share some similarities with hospice doctors in this regard, their goal is still to cure, and their patients are not con sidered to be at the end of their lives, they are simply facing a serious illness. Besides cancer, their help is commonly employed for treatment of heart and liver failure, HIV and AIDS, emphysema, sickle cell anemia, chronic obstruc tive pulmonary disease and a wide variety of other ill nesses. Palliative teams are sometimes met with doubt by both patients and their medical colleagues. Dr. Timothy Quill, a pal liative care doctor at the University of Rochester Medical Center and presi dent of the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, con cedes that patient recogni tion of what palliative care is remains relatively low and that resistance to the field remains among doc tors untrained in the field. Aside from misconcep tions about palliative care being non-curative pain relief for patients destined to die, specialists may find a palliative team helps a patient reach a treatment decision that doesnt offer the most payment. Quill offers an example of a heart failure patient who may be considering getting a ven tricular assist device. The economic incen tives clearly favor doing aggressive medical inter ventions like this, Quill said. Palliative care, its all conversation. And conver sation is not compensated in the same way that doing procedures is in our sys tem right now. Meier says resistance to palliative care tends to be generational, with many younger doctors embrac ing the field. Research on the subject has also helped prove its worth, particular ly a 2010 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. That widely publicized report looked at terminal lung cancer patients and found patients who received palliative care as soon as they were diagnosed were in less pain, happier and more mobile than those who didnt receive such care, and the patients ulti mately lived nearly three months longer. Even with such scientific backing, and generally rave reviews from patients, even palliative cares most ardent backers admit it would not have spread as it has with out showing cost savings to hospitals. Because a result of palliative care is shorter hospital stays, it can cut costs since many insurance plans pay a flat reimburse ment for a treatment, not for the length of stay. If a bed is freed up soon er, that means another pay ing customer can occupy it. By itself, better out comes for patients would not be enough, Meier said. In our society and current way of life, it is impossible to introduce any innova tion whether its surgery or drugs or any innovation if you cant show that it doesnt increase costs. Broward Generals adult and pediatric palliative teams saw more than 1,300 patients last year, but so far administrators have had trouble quantifying what the precise financial impact has been. Sutton and her colleagues have little doubt their work has resulted in fewer hospitalizations and shorter stays, but have found it hard to pinpoint the savings. Sutton is focused this day on Delzatto, asking her about her sleep and bathroom patterns, and addressing her pain by writ ing prescriptions. Before seeing Sutton, the patient said she was suffering so greatly she was barely able to move. Now, shes able again to live fairly normally, browsing garage sales with a neighbor and walking the mall with her husband. The oncologists are focusing on chemo, the patients are focusing on cure and I think the con versations about comfort arent happening, Sutton said. Much of the appoint ment, Sutton just sits and listens, to Delzatto talk ing about her Mothers Day celebration, her new Kindle Fire and how she hopes to be able to go on a cruise later this year. And she hears Delzatto credit her with making her life livable again. They need more of you, she said. By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical Writer CHICAGO New research shows a sharp escalation in the weapons race against cancer, with several high-tech approach es long dreamed of but not possible or successful until now. At a weekend conference of more than 30,000 can cer specialists, scientists reported: New smart drugs that deliver powerful poi sons directly to cancer cells while leaving healthy ones alone. A new tool that helps the immune system attack a broad range of cancer types. Treatments aimed at new genes and cancer path ways, plus better tests to predict which patients will benefit from them. I see major advances being made in big diseases such as breast and prostate cancers, said Dr. Richard Pazdur, cancer drug chief at the federal Food and Drug Administration, which on Wednesday announced a new policy intended to speed breast cancer drugs to the market. The field continues to move toward more precise treatments with fewer side effects and away from oldstyle chemotherapy that was like dropping a bomb on the body, he said. In fact, an emerging class of smart bombs was one of the most hopeful develop ments reported at the meet ing of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. These are two-punch weapons that combine sub stances called antibodies, which bond with specific cancer cells, and toxins that are too potent to be given by themselves. A chemical link holds them together until they attach to a tumor cell, releasing the poison inside it and kill ing the cell. This is a classic exam ple of the magic bullet con cept first proposed more than 100 years ago but only now possible with advanc es in technology, said Dr. Louis Weiner, director of Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. The antibody basically targets this very toxic drug right to the cancer cell and places it inside the cancer cell where the drug can do its damage without harm ing healthy cells nearby, he said. On Sunday, a large study showed that one such drug Genentechs TDM1 delayed the time until cancer got worse in women with very advanced breast cancer. The drug also seems to be improving survival, although it will take more time to know for sure. So far, women on the new treatment were living more than a year longer than a comparison group of women who were given two other drugs. Dozens of similar smart bomb drugs are in devel opment. On Monday, Pfizer Inc. plans to report on one it is testing for certain types of lymphoma and leukemia. Only one such drug is on the market now Adcetris, sold by Seattle Genetics Inc. for some less common types of lymphoma. These are only early results not survival com parisons or definitive tests, doctors warn. More testing is needed to even establish safety.

Enjoy food music & games in honor of our survivors June 8th 11am-2pm cccnf.com Nurse On Call Home Healthcare By P. SOLOMON BANDA Associated Press FORT CARSON, Colo. In 1943, an enraged Gen. George S. Patton slapped a battle-fatigued U.S. soldier at a military hospital and accused him of coward ice, an episode that near ly ended Pattons career. Nearly 70 years later, two filmmakers one of them Pattons grandson are trying to help soldiers cope with what is now called post-traumatic stress disor der by getting them to tell their war stories through a movie. Their generation just didnt understand what this meant, said Ben Patton, who takes his grandfathers violent reaction as a sign that he too may have been suffering PTSD. And thats my call to action. With a growing demand for ways to treat the psy chological damage of war, one Army pilot project is encouraging soldiers to take control of their own stories in a filmmaking class titled I Was There Media Workshop. The Fort Carson pro gram began last year under the auspices of Patton, a New York documen tary filmmaker, and Scott Kinnamon, a Denver edu cational filmmaker. Some 20 veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars so far have attempted to organize their combat experiences in video as a way to fight PTSD. You can put everything into a video or a movie, a small movie about what you want to tell people your story, said 1st Sgt. Jason Gallegos of Fountain, Colo., who deployed to Iraq three times and has now produced a short film called From Hero to Zero. If they want to watch it, great. If they dont, then dont. But I dont have to go through the process of the angsting up to tell some body something, just for them to be interested for a minute, Gallegos said. Some 2.3 million men and women have served tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan in the past decade. The Rand Corp. said as many as 300,000 veterans of those wars may have suffered PTSD or major depression. The Pentagon and the Veterans Affairs Department have been ramping up therapy options for several years now and the effort contin ues as some troops con tinue to go undiagnosed or untreated. Gallegos was a tank commander in Iraq and vividly recalls what he felt after his first engagement with insurgents in 2003. He ordered a tank gun ner to fire on a man who had launched a rocket pro pelled grenade at his tank, and he watched through night-vision goggles as the bullets cut through the man. Another reminder of the pain of war is a picture of Army Cpl. Gary Brent Coleman, of Pikeville, Ky., that Gallegos keeps on his Facebook page. Coleman was 24 when he died in an accident that tipped a Humvee under Gallegos command into a canal near Balad, Iraq, in November 2003. Gallegos and anoth er soldier in the Humvee survived and Coleman died despite desperate efforts by Gallegos and the other solider to find him in the murky water. I did have one night mare, where I was holding my breath and swimming underwater, Gallegos said of his memory from that event. Filmmaking as a way to document or cope with the lasting emotional impact of combat is not a new concept. In Los Angeles, ex-U.S. Marine filmmaker Garrett Anderson is mak ing a documentary film with video from pocket digi tial cameras that was cap tured during the November 2004 battle of Fallujah. The 2010 Academy Award nominated Restrepo, by author Sebastian Junger and photographer Tim Hetherington, tells the story of a platoon in com bat in Afghanistan and its resulting emotional impact on the soldiers. Whats different now is that the Army is looking at filmmaking as possible therapy. Maj. Christopher Ivany, a psychiatrist and former head of Fort Carsons behavioral health ser vices unit, approved the trial classes to supplement more-established therapy programs for returning vet erans. The goal, he said, is to encourage soldiers to take control of the things that happened in the past and paint that in a specific way that makes sense. And hopefully do that in a way that allows them to think about that as a more productive or posi tive and more realistic past event, and then go forward in their life easier, Ivany said. In the case of Gallegos, making the film From Hero to Zero was a way for him to cope with what he describes as a letdown feeling sparked by his pending return to civilian life which was brought on by a diagnosis for leu kemia. The Hero refers to his combat experiences in Iraq. The Zero depicts him learning about his leu kemia and trying to deal with the end of his military career. My time in the Army is coming to an end, and I take a lot of pride in what I did over there, Gallegos said. The results of video as therapy havent been scien tifically validated. Kinnamon and Patton are working with medical researchers and the military to develop a way to study the possible benefits of filmmaking. Barbara Rothbaum, a psy chiatry professor and PTSD expert at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, said theres little to no data on filmmaking for PTSD but that it may follow a proven treatment known as exposure therapy. The idea is that exposure to the memory, like other meth ods that include talking to a therapist who might record a conversation and replay it, can eventually help a soldier face the traumatic experience at the core of distressing memories. Ivany noted that some therapy treatments, such as sports and exercise, were relatively new and seem ingly out of left field prob ably eight to 10 years ago. Army veterans use filmmaking as therapy for PTSD ASSOCIATED PRESS Former Navy corpsman Ryan McNabb, being treated for PTSD, poses for a portrait at his childhood home where he and his family live with his parents in Winthrop Harbor, Ill. After two stints in Iraq, McNabb, 29, works as an outreach coordinator for a Vet Center in suburban Chicago. Other doctors, includ ing Pfizers cancer drug development chief, Dr. Mace Rothenberg, noted progress on new diagnos tic tests to predict which drugs will work for which patients. Cost, time and difficulty have kept many of them from being practi cal in everyday settings for cancer patients, but a lot of these barriers are fall ing, Rothenberg said. Every time we say this technology is 5 to 10 years off, weve been wrong and progress has come sooner, he said. CANCER: From Page 7A

Gaining notice By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comE arning a college scholarship to play football is a goal that Fontaine Woodbury hasn’t given up on. He might be one step closer to achieving that goal. Woodbury walked on at Florida A&M after wrapping up his high school career with Columbia High and his hard work seems to be paying off after winning the “Unsung Hero” award from the Rattlers last season. “Basically there were a lot of seniors ahead of me and they weren’t trying very hard,” Woodbury said. “They were kind of laid back and I was there for every workout and meeting. I was trying to give them everything I had and then some.” Woodbury is hoping his hard work will pay off in the form of a scholarship and he thinks it may come soon. “They told me I would have a scholarship soon, but I’m trying not to speak too soon,” he said. “I’m thinking maybe by January I’ll have one. I hope so.” Woodbury has made an impression, however, and this fall he will enter practice as the team’s No. 2 defensive tackle. “I’ll be the second string nose guard,” he said. “I didn’t get to dress too many games last year, but I did get to play a little special teams” Woodbury said his plan to get better is simple. “I want to learn as much as I can from the guys in front of me,” he said. Woodbury is still a sophomore on the field, but he’s got things going in the right direction in the classroom. Woodbury is a junior in the classroom, but has three years of eligibility left to play football. “I’m gonna stick with it,” he said. “I’m going to keep at it and eventually I’ll get better. A lot of people get discouraged when they’re not as good as they were in high school, but I still have big goals.” And he’s not aiming low.“I want to be a starter and eventually play in the NFL,” Woodbury said. If his NFL dreams don’t work out, at least he’ll have a degree to fall back on ABOVE : Vincent Fontaine Woodbury is joined by father Vincent and mother Yalanda following a Florida A&M University football game last season.LEFT : Woodbury’s Unsung Hero Award presented during the 2011-12 season.COURTESY PHOTOS WOODBURY continued on 6B ASSOCIATED PRESSJacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon p oses for a portrait during the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere pho to shoot in Los Angeles on May 18. Jags’ Blackmon says he’s ‘done drinking for now’By MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE — Sitting between his coach and general manager, Jacksonville Jaguars receiv-er Justin Blackmon stared at the ground for much of the 18-minute news confer-ence Wednesday. He looked every bit like a kid in trouble. Blackmon apologized for his “poor judgment,” vowed to learn and grow from his latest alcohol-related arrest and insisted he doesn’t have a drinking problem. Nonetheless, he swore off alcohol for now. “People are going to think what they are going to think,” Blackmon said. “Words are words. It’s my actions that are going to have to show.” The first-round draft pick was arrested during a traffic stop in Stillwater, Okla., early Sunday after a breath test allegedly showed his blood alcohol content to be three times the legal limit. He appeared in an Oklahoma courtroom Monday and pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence. Blackmon was allowed to remain free on $1,000 bond. His next court date is July 24, three days before training camp. In the meantime, he has plenty of work to do to restore his image. “I just want to apologize and let people know that it’s not who I am, that’s not who I’m going to be,” he said. It was Blackmon’s second alcohol-related incident in less than two years. He was arrested on a misdemean-or DUI charge in Texas in 2010 after officers caught him speeding on a subur-ban Dallas highway. Rookie speaks with public after DUI arrest.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I were invited to a dinner party at a couple’s home. We accepted the invitation with pleasure, only to be told afterward that it was going to be a “potluck.” My husband and I were raised to never go to some-one’s home empty-handed, so we were happy to bring a dish to contribute to the meal. When I called the hostess to ask if we could bring dessert or perhaps an appetizer, she informed me that the menu had already been planned and we were assigned a side dish neither of us had ever heard of. Then she told me she would email me the recipe. Abby, I was shocked and, frankly, offended. I would never tell a guest what to bring and what recipe to follow. When my husband told me he was willing to give the dish a try, I told him I would not attend a dinner party where I was commanded to bring a specific dish. My husband stayed home with me that eve-ning, but says he can’t understand what the big deal was. Was I wrong to refuse to participate? Or should I have gone along with the program and kept my mouth shut? -LOST MY APPETITE DEAR LOST: Having accepted the invitation you should have gone to the dinner, taken the side dish and made the best of it. You may have missed out on a memorable and enjoy-able evening. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I was in a passionate relationship for three years with my first real boyfriend. We were very young and desper-ately in love. I adored him completely, without hesita-tion. Then we had some irreconcilable differences and parted. I went though a period of self-reflection and didn’t date again for almost four years. During that period, I thought and prayed. Then I met someone special, “Zack.” We have been seeing each other for five years now, and our relationship is solid. It’s wonderful in every aspect -except that I am not in love with him. We plan to be married in six months. I’m not sure if it’s the right thing to do though. I have hesitated for years despite pressure from my family. I enjoy spending time with Zack more than with anyone else. We under-stand each other and he knows me so well that it’s uncanny. We’re compatible with the same interests and similar beliefs. Zack knows that I love him but am not “in love” with him, but he still wants to marry me. Is it wrong to marry your best friend? -UNSURE IN CALIFORNIA DEAR UNSURE: No, it’s not wrong to marry your best friend. But because you have reservations about marrying Zack, you should be honest and break the engagement. It will be less painful for both of you and far cheaper than divorce. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: The grandfather of a friend recently died. The sister of this friend and I had dated not long ago. I would like to send a condolence card to the family. Would it be proper to send one card addressed to “The Smiths” or should I send a card to the family and a separate one to “Lisa” (the woman I dated)? -JAY DEAR JAY: You are a thoughtful person. A let-ter or card of condolence should be sent to the family, and a separate condolence should be sent to Lisa. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let anyone take you for granted. What you are offered and what you receive will not be the same. Stay focused and nurture partnerships that are equal and can bring you greater success and happiness. Love is in the stars. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Work, ethics and discipline will pay off. It’s important to share your plans and to be clear about your motives or intentions. What you learn through conversations will be price-less. Think big, but move forward frugally. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stick to whatever budget you set. Put your money in a safe place where you will not be tempted to use it inap-propriately. You will gain greater knowledge and awareness if you study, listen or gain experience in a field that interests you. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Information will be easy to come by, but it may not be accurate or helpful. Decipher what you can use to your advantage and what is a waste of time. Following someone else will not work in your favor. Do your own thing. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Honor favors, but don’t be too proud to ask for some-thing in return. A quiet, reserved approach to per-sonal aspects of your life will bring you the highest returns. Opportunity will arise due to your dedicated offering to a cause you care about. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Focus on self-improvement and network-ing. You can make changes that will open a window of opportunity. Don’t let frus-tration hold you back or cause you to miss out on a good deal. Anger won’t help you, but constructive action will. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make a move physically, financially or emotionally. Choose what works for you and head for the finish line. Now is not the time to procrastinate. You can make lifestyle improvements and enhance your skills and atti-tude. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Money and help are on the way. You will gain through the company you keep and the friends and relatives you have helped in the past. An emotional situation will also bring you rewards. You can sta-bilize your life and build a brighter future. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Take a moment to consider the past and present. Your future will be much clearer, and you will come up with a plan to help you move onward and upward. Alterations to your living arrangement will enhance your love life. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Don’t reveal too much about your plans. Get everything in order first. Socializing will lead to an interesting idea and a long-term relationship with someone who shares your vision. Offering knowledge will bring a cash injection. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Concentrate on financial goals. Stabilizing your personal and profes-sional position will bring the boost you need to get ahead. Romance is high-lighted, and greater confi-dence and motivation will result from the closeness you share. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Choose your friends and associates wisely. Don’t hide facts. Look at the big picture and put your ego aside. Stubbornness will not bring good results, but compromise will. The pos-sibilities are endless if you strive for unity and equal-ity. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Right now, hes just thankful to be working his way up the depth chart. Im thankful that Patrick Scott saw something in me, Woodbury said. A lot of the guys kind of treated the underclassmen bad, but hes shown me the ropes. He originally played at Stanford, but wanted to be closer to home and has shown me everything. In the future, it could be Woodbury showing the ropes as his star continues to rise.

ASSOCIATED PRESS Rafael Nadal of Spain celebrates winning his quarter final match against compatriot Nicolas Almagro at the French Open tennis tournament in Roland Garros stadium in Paris on Wednesday. Nadal won in three sets 7-6, 6-2, 6-3. Nadal rolls again at French By EDDIE PELLS Associated Press PARIS A rain show er stopped play at Roland Garros for a minute or two in the middle of Rafael Nadals quarterfinal. Nicolas Almagro? He couldnt do anything to slow Rafa at his favorite tournament. Second-seeded Nadal defeated his fellow Spaniard 7-6 (4), 6-2, 6-3 on Wednesday to move to the French Open semifi nals, two wins away from a record seventh title on the red clay of Paris. Nadal, who shares the Roland Garros record with Bjorn Borg, hasnt lost a set through his first five matches this year. Against the 12th-seeded Almagro, he faced four break points but saved them all. He improved to 50-1 lifetime at Roland Garros, with the only loss coming to Robin Soderling in 2009. I was just trying to wait for my moments, Nadal said. He had some good moments and he was hit ting the ball hard, but I had my chances, too. Nadals next match will be against sixth-seeded David Ferrer, who defeated No. 4 seed Andy Murray 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-2 to move to his first French Open semi final. Ferrers last semifinal appearance at a Grand Slam came at the 2011 Australian Open, where he defeated Nadal in the quarterfinals to get there. Since that match, how ever, Nadal has defeated Ferrer four straight times, all on clay, with three of those wins in the final of tournaments. It will be tough against him because hes the best player on clay in history, Ferrer said. The Ferrer-Murray match was delayed for about 30 minutes by a big ger rain shower that passed through a few minutes after Nadal left the court. It means hell have a few hours of extra rest before the semifinals Friday, though he hardly needs it. Including the 2 hours, 46 minutes he took to dispatch Almagro, Nadal has spent a grand total of 10 hours, 37 minutes on court. Novak Djokovic, by comparison, spent a combined 8 hours, 27 minutes grinding out his past two matches five-set wins over Andreas Seppi and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Djokovic saved four match points in his win Tuesday against the Frenchman Tsonga and Nadal spent about as much time answering questions about that match as his own, which produced none of the drama. A player like Novak prob ably creates more chances to save tough matches like yes terday, where hes in a trou ble situation, Nadal said. In the womens quar terfinals before Nadal played, second-seeded Maria Sharapova defeated 23rd-seeded Kaia Kanepi of Estonia 6-2, 6-3 and the No. 4 seed, Petra Kvitova, beat 142nd-ranked qualifier Yaroslava Shvedova, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4.
