By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comNever a cover charge, live entertainment and an establishment that featured a painting of cartoon cat Toms Place was a local lounge that literally became a hometown legend. What started out as Iveys Lounge in the 1950s became Toms Place, then Tom and Jerrys and, finally, Legends, a local bar and lounge with a package shop and live enter-tainment. The establishment had two floors and housed pool tables and video games upstairs. Constructed in 1956 as a nightclub/bar, the establishment was originally built as Iveys Lounge. Last week crews began demolition work on the former bar site to make way for a Family Dollar store. Thomas Stinson, former general manager and vice president of Aero Corp. (now Timco), purchased the lounge from Ivey Swilley and his wife in 1972. Stinson said when he bought Iveys Lounge it was a 40 x 40 block construction lounge and package store with a trailer park in the back that had 12 mobile homes. The lounge was operated in that configuration until 1981. Stinson, who recently celebrated his 76th birthday, said he spent many 15-16 hour days working at the lounge. In 1991 he first expanded the lounge and increased the size of the establishment and through other later expansion projects, increased the amount of parking spaces, the size of the lounge and later built a second floor. Early to bed and early to rise, work like hell and advertise, was his mantra for close to three decades, he said. Stinson fondly remembers the days he operated Toms Place, when he had a live band called The Tom Cats play regularly, but also managed to attract many up-and-com-ing country music artists who had performed at the Grand Ole Opry.

BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comThe county commission has taken a stand against the Suwannee River Water Management Districts recent push to restrict water usage. There havent been one or two over the years that I have been on this board that my mind has been made up, but read my lips: My mind is made up, Commissioner Ron Williams said at Thursdays meeting. I am not supporting any ordinance governing what and when a county resident can do what they want to with their water. SRWMD has the authority to do that them-selves. Here again, it goes to back to they want to conserve our water so that we can be sucked dry by JEA and I am not going to support it. Period. Attending citizens applauded Williams statement. The SRWMD order, issued May 29, will restrict water usage for residential, agri-cultural, commercial and industrial users within the district. Counties affected by the ordinance include Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee, Taylor and Union counties as well as portions of Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Jefferson, Levy and Putnam. Under the new rules, which take effect Wednesday, citizens within the district will be limited to watering their lawns only once per week. Car washing and pressure cleaning is also limited as well as outside and inside aesthetic water uses. The county had been asked by SRWMD to schedule a public hearing and pass an ordinance implementing the new rules. However, the issue died on lack of a motion. Under the ordinance the county commission had been asked to adopt, the pen-alties were as follows: a verbal warning for the first offense, a written warning for the second, a $25 fine for the third and a $50 Williams WATER continued on 7A The legend of Toms PlaceLounge, a landmark since the 50s, is razed to make room for a Family Dollar. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterThomas Stinson looks through hundred of photographs of sta ff, patrons and celebrities that visited his lounge/bar/nightclub. The establishment, which was torn down Wednesday, has been a town favorite since its initial run as Iveys Lounge, to To ms Place, to Tom and Jerrys and finally to Legends. A Lake City landmark for years, Toms Place, more recen tly known as Legends, has been bulldozed to make way for a new Family Dollar Store.JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterTOMS continued on 7A By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comWith no one running against her, District 10 state Rep. Elizabeth Porter has been assured another term in Tallahassee. With the weight of campaigning off her shoulders, shes ready to dive into the fight for water in the area. That's my big push, that's my real concern for this area, Porter said. Because if we don't have that, we don't have agricultural, to include live-stock, we don't have dairies, we don't have eco-tourism, which is a huge issue for this area and at some point we won't even have consumption, and we will have restrictions. Porter said her job as state representative is to make connec-tions and advance legislation on the issues. However, a great deal of education on complexities of water management has also been necessary for her position. She spent several days last week touring local waterways with offi-cials from the Suwannee River Water Management District. Porter says she plans to refile her bill to consolidate the research conducted by the water manage-ment districts in the state in the Porter picks up where she left off PORTER continued on 3A By HANNAH O.

A funeral was held Saturday for 31-year-old Rudy Eugene. Police shot and killed Eugene during a bizarre attack over Memorial Day week end. The Miami Herald reported about 150 people attended the service. The program handed out at the funeral described Eugene as a boy who aspired to the best, to a man who was focused on enjoying his piece of the American dream by owning a cardetailing business. Eugenes brother, Marckenson Eugene, said his brother was always there for him and often helped him pay the bills when money was tight. Its not clear what led to the attack on Ronald Poppo. The homeless man remains hospitalized. 2 men found dead in Fla. home PORT CHARLOTTE Deputies are investigat ing after finding the bodies of two men inside a south west Florida home. The Charlotte County Sheriffs deputies said the men died of gunshot wounds and the deaths appear to be domestic related. The bodies were discovered Friday night. The names of the vic tims were not released. Deputy charged with grand theft FORT LAUDERDALE A Broward Sheriffs Office lieutenant is in custody after authorities say he was moonlighting at other jobs while he was supposed to be on duty. Fifty-year-old Eric Wright is a supervisor in Weston. Investigators say on 14 occasions Wright worked at a high school, restaurant or was absent without permission while supposedly on duty. Wright surrendered Friday and was charged with one count of organized scheme to defraud and 14 counts of grand theft. Investigators caught on to the alleged scam after a routine audit revealed Wright was working shifts for other employers at the same time he was sched uled to be at his main job. The Sun Sentinel reports the alleged scam cost taxpayers more than $10,000. Girl shoots self; parents arrested ORLANDO The parents of a 4-year-old girl who accidentally shot herself in the chest after finding a gun on the couch have been arrested. Florida Today reports Leshumbia Stokes was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and tampering with evidence. Marie Buskey was charged with child neglect causing great bodily harm and culpable negligence. They were arrested Wednesday while visiting her at an Orlando hospital. Police say the girl found a handgun on May 12 and shot herself in the chest while her parents were in another room. Doctors brought her out of a medically induced coma but said she faces a long recovery. Her parents rushed her to the hospital but police said Stokes allegedly returned home to dispose of the handgun before investigators arrived. Woman dies after fall from balcony ST. PETERSBURG St. Petersburg Police are investigating after a woman fell to her death from a third floor balcony. Police said 24-year-old Alexandra Gardner may have been trying to get into her friends locked apartment from the bal cony. A friend tried to save her, but lost his grip on Gardner. She died around 1:30 a.m. Saturday morning. Homicide detectives said the death is suspicious. 3 guilty in septic toilet paper scam WEST PALM BEACH Three men have pleaded guilty in Florida to federal charges that they bilked septic tank owners out of more than $1 million partly through bogus toilet paper claims. Two men, 54-year-old Scott Weiss and 52-yearold Mitchell Friedman, pleaded guilty this week to wire fraud conspiracy. The third man, 46-year-old Richard Chiat, pleaded guilty earlier this month. All face maximum five-year prison sentences. Court documents show the men marketed prod ucts around the country they falsely claimed would eliminate the need for septic tank pumping. They also falsely told people the government had changed the composition of toilet paper and their products would work with those supposed changes. In addition, prosecu tors say the three made fraudulent claims that federal government agen cies stood behind their products, sold as FBK and Septic Remedy. Versace mansion on the market MIAMI BEACH The South Beach mansion once owned by Italian designer Gianni Versace is back on the market for $125 mil lion. Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate announced the listing for Casa Casuarina on Friday. Originally built in 1930, the 10-bedroom, 11-bath room, gated home features a 54-foot long, thousand mosaic pool. The pool is lined in 24-karat gold, numerous frescos, ornate statues, arched doorways and an open air courtyard. The home at 1116 Ocean Drive received national attention in 1997, when Versace was fatally shot in front of the property. He had purchased the home in 1992 and spent about $33 million expanding it. Tourists can still routinely be spotted taking photos in front of the house. The homes current owner, Peter Loftin, bought the property in 2000. Coldwell Banker says he preserved and maintained all of Versaces design elements. Judge upholds water rules TALLAHASSEE A Florida administrative law judge says the states proposed water pollution rules are valid. Judge Bram Canter on Thursday rejected a challenge by five envi ronmental groups to the states numeric nutrient rules that are backed by business, agriculture and utility interests. The federal Environmental Protection Agency has not yet deter mined whether to go with the states version or its own rule favored by the environmental groups. David Guest, a law yer for the groups, said they havent yet decided whether to appeal the decision. If so, the case would go to the 1st District Court of Appeal. Rudy Eugene, 31, left, who police shot and killed as he ate the face of Ronald Poppo, 65, right, during a horrific attack in Miami on May 26, was buried Saturday. Poppo remains hospitalized.

Matthew 7:13-14 NIV LOS ANGELES Lindsay Lohan emerged uninjured from a collision with a dump truck on a coastal high way near Los Angeles on Friday, returning to the set of her new movie hours after the accident left her sports car crumpled. Santa Monica Police Sgt. Richard Lewis said there was no sign Lohan was impaired at the time of the accident and said his agency would continue to investigate who was at fault in the wreck. The trucks driver was uninjured and that driver also showed no signs of driving under the influence, Lewis said. Police are seeking witnesses to the crash, writing in a news release that detectives were trying to deter mine who was driving. Lohan was traveling with a male assistant to the set of her new film; the assistant was also uninjured. Were treating this as a regular accident, Lewis said. The agency is accepting anonymous tips about the wreck, and offering a $1,000 reward if it leads to an arrest. The accident at around 11:40 a.m. Friday on the Pacific Coast Highway occurred while Lohan was on her way to film scenes for the Lifetime movie Liz and Dick, which chronicles the love affair between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Lohans publicist Steve Honig said the actress was released about two hours after the accident and was returned to the set to con tinue filming. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the accident, he wrote in an email. Honig declined further comment, including on who was driving, citing the pending investigation. First and foremost, were con cerned about the well-being of Lindsay and anyone else who may have been involved in the accident, Lifetime spokesman Les Eisner said, adding, Lindsay has been doing fantastic work on the set of Liz and Dick. Production on the film started ear lier this week and was expected to conclude around the end of June. Lohan, 25, remains on probation in a necklace theft case, but is no longer being supervised by a judge or probation officer. The accident is the latest vehicular mishap for Lohan, who had her driv ers license restored in August 2010 after losing her driving privileges because of a pair of DUI arrests in 2008. She is still being sued by three men who claim Lohan forced them to remain in a sport utility vehicle she commandeered and used to chase a woman she thought was her assistant on Pacific Coast Highway. That incident ended in the park ing lot of the Santa Monica Police Department, where Lohan was arrested. She is also being sued by a pedes trian who claims Lohan struck her in West Hollywood, Calif., in September 2010. That civil case is still pending. Fridays accident comes after the Los Angeles District Attorneys Office last month determined there was insufficient evidence to pursue a case against Lohan in a nightclub managers claim that the actress struck him with her sports car. The prosecution said there was a lack of evidence in the case. Governor signs OH bill to up film tax incentive COLUMBUS, Ohio Ohios governor has signed a bill doubling the film tax incentive the state offers for movie projects to be produced in Ohio. Gov. John Kasich (KAY-sik) signed House Bill 508 this week. It will increase the incentive from $10 million a year to $20 million a year for the next two years. The incentive provides for a refundable credit against the corpo ration franchise or income tax for motion pictures produced in Ohio. The executive director of the Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky Film Commission says raising the cap on the tax incentive lets the industry know Ohio is open for business. Police: Rapper Lil Phat fatally shot near Atlanta SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. Police have identified the 19-year-old man who was fatally shot outside a sub urban Atlanta hospital as a rapper known as Lil Phat. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/LvkTO1 ) that the rapper whose real name is Melvin Vernell III, of Sandy Springs was fatally shot Thursday night. Sandy Springs police spokesman Capt. Steve Rose said Friday that police are searching for two men seen fleeing the scene. The victim was found shot in a car parked on the second level of a parking deck next to the hospital. He was pro nounced dead shortly afterward. A motive was not known. Lil Phat was featured in rapper Webbies 2007 song, Independent, which also included Lil Boosie. The song, which praised a womans inde pendent nature, peaked at No. 9 on Billboards 100 and topped the rap chart. Fire at De Niros NYC apartment; no injuries NEW YORK A fire that broke out in Robert De Niros Manhattan apartment has been extinguished. A Fire Department spokesman said no residents were injured in the Friday afternoon fire on Central Park West. The fire was contained within an hour, and the cause was under investigation. A spokesman for De Niro con firmed that the actor lives in the building. The spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, said De Niro is out of the country. Residents of the building told The New York Times the fire started in the laundry room of De Niros apart ment. The newspaper said 95-yearold actress Celeste Holm and her husband, Frank Basile, who live in the building, were in their apartment as firefighters fought to contain the flames.

We can help. upcoming session. What this would do is it would require all of the water management districts to recognize each others science and therefore their results that they have deter mined when it comes to min imal flows and levels in their district, Porter said. The bill passed unani mously in the House last session, but was prevented from coming to a vote in the Senate. Porter said the bill would not only put the sci ence in the hands of the indi viduals most familiar with their districts, it would also save costs. It also is a money-sav ing issue as well, Porter said. Because if we perform a couple of hundred thousand dollars worth of studies over here and St. Johns River is performing the same study at a cost of two or three thou sand dollars, then we are duplicating our efforts and we are wasting taxpayer dollars. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the federal Environmental Protection Agency are at odds over numeric nutrient values, indicating pollutant levels, allowable for local water sys tems. Five environmental groups challenged the states proposal, saying the states rules were inadequate. A Florida administrative law judge on Thursday rejected the environmental groups challenge to the proposed state rules. Porter said she agreed with the states rules, calling DEP very knowledgeable. When you have bureau crats in Washington, D.C. setting what they think our numeric nutrient criteria should be when they really know nothing about our geology and our hydrology, it's ridiculous, Porter said. It's like having a plumber perform brain surgery. You are asking people who do not have the knowledge of our hydrology about how we should manage our water system. Porter said the EPA has failed to take into account the diversity of Floridas water resources. The EPA's numbers are very broad, Porter said. It's basically, this is what the numeric nutrient cri teria should be in Florida, whether its a river or a mud puddle or a canal. Local government issues pertaining to water are beginning to heat up as well, with a recent restriction ordi nance passed by SRWMD. I hope people will under stand, Porter said. I hope as they drive across the Suwannee River and see that its ankle deep in some spots, that they will choose to participate and that they will agree that sometimes you have to take drastic mea sures. Columbia County commis sioners rejected SRWMDs request to hold a public hearing for the restriction last Thursday. Commissioner Ron Williams said SRWMD was passing the ordinance to conserve water that would later be sucked dry by JEA, which was issued a permit by St. Johns Water Management District to pump 155 million gallons a day from the Floridan aqui fer. Porter said focusing on the JEA permit is small scale thinking. The issue, she said, is happening statewide. Its a lot bigger than that one permit that was issued to JEA, Porter said. This has been going on for decades. Over permitting has been going on for decades, but it just hasn't been addressed. And now, because of the drought and because of the over permitting that we are seeing in areas around the state, now all of the sudden its becoming really appar ent. So I think because its so apparent, it cant be ignored anymore. Porter called the water issues facing the district complex and not easily solved. Possible ideas for water management in the district include wastewater use, conservation, surface water retention and public educa tion. Porter said she under stands that water issues are not currently on many peoples radar, but she said they could be in the not too distant future. Who sits around and studies water use patterns or water table levels? Porter said. Most people are going to work, they are coming home, they are cooking din ner, they are helping kids with homework, you know, they are just trying to sur vive and they dont have time to just sit around and study those issues. With her reinstatement as state representative for District 10, Porter said her stress level has fallen. Its sort of like the Sword of Damocles hanging over your head, she said. The boundaries of District 10 have changed, with the whole region characterized as rural. The former district lines included a segment of Gainesville, which Porter said served to be a contrast to the rest of the area. Its become a much more homogenous district and I think it will be easier for me to advance the agendas of the constituents and that agenda be representing the entire district and not just part of it, Porter said. With water as her main focus in the upcoming term, Porter has developed an attitude of perseverance to make whatever changes pos sible as well as acceptance of the limitations of the control that people have over these natural systems. We have to recognize too in all of this, aside from all of the effects that we have on the water table and the water systems in the area, there is the natural effect of droughts or floods that we can't control, Porter said. There will be changes in our climate. There will be changes in our geology and changes in our hydrology that we cannot effect. All we can do is the best that we can as human beings to try and tweak that a little bit, but we can never control it entirely. 934 NE Lake DeSoto Circle, Lake City, FL (Next to Courthouse) State Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, addresses water issues durng a roundtable discussion at Florida Gateway College Tuesday attended by Gov. Rick Scott.

The leakerin chief OUR OPINION E ngraved large on one of the walls of the Korean War Veterans Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., are the words Freedom is not free. It is sad that so many are unable or unwilling to appreci-ate the truth of this simple phrase, or are ready to heed those who have power, or seek it, who distort it. I cannot think of anything hurting us more today than false and confused notions about the nature of the ideal of freedom. Recently, Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) appeared on Chris Matthews Hardball show and, in discussion about voter ID laws, he said that voting should be as easy as getting a glass of fresh water. He equated requiring a picture ID to vote to Jim Crow laws and poll taxes. It is particularly troubling to hear this from Lewis, a battle-scarred veteran of the civil rights movement. The National Mall and the streets of Washington are filled in the summer with tourists -many families with kids -visit-ing our capital. They can see the collection of symbols and memorials across the Mall testi-fying to the truth that Freedom is not free. A five-minute walk from the Korean War memorial is the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, which serves as a reminder of the struggles of the civil rights movement. A few minutes in the other direction is the National World War II Memorial. And heading back around again you encounter the sad swath of black stone in which the names of over 58,000 lost in the war in Vietnam are engraved. Looking out over it all at the base of the Reflecting Pool is Abraham Lincoln, who pre-sided over the blood bath in which more than half a million Americans died in the interne-cine struggle for the nations survival and ideals. A short ride over Arlington Memorial Bridge takes one to Arlington National Cemetery and the flowing green pastures filled with uniform white grave-stones of our soldiers fallen fighting our many wars. The struggle to protect and maintain a free society and to build on it so that we can contin-ue to climb higher never ends. Certainly someone who put his life on the line struggling for civil rights, like John Lewis, should know this. How can he possibly conclude that voting -the privilege to make ones voice heard as part of the ongoing delibera-tions central to our enterprise of advancing human freedom -should be as easy as getting a glass of fresh water? A free society will soon not be free if the citizens in it see their freedom as something that should arrive effortlessly, free of personal responsibility, like the appearance of the morning sun. Black leaders do damage to our nation, and to our black citizens, to label as racist the call for requirements for a modi-cum of personal responsibility in order to vote. A study published earlier this year by the Pew Center on the States characterized Americas voter registration sys-tem as Inaccurate, Costly, and Inefficient. Among its conclusions are that approximately 24 million voter registrations in the U.S. are no longer valid or (are) significantly inaccurate; more than 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters; approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state. In 2008, the Supreme Court considered Indianas voter ID law, which the New York Times then reported was considered the strictest in the country, and found it constitutional. Every American should celebrate efforts requiring respon-sibility for clear proof of identity when registering to vote. And every American should appreci-ate the importance of efforts by states, like that taking place now in Florida, to update and ensure the honesty and integ-rity of voter files. Freedom is not free. To the extent that Americans of any background do not appreciate this, we will long for the days when we were free.

Voter rights are not free LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Trains have been required to blow their horns at railroad crossings for at least 100 years, two short and one long. This happens all over the USA and other countries. The CSX tracks are paid for by them along with the mainte-nance with NO bailout taxpayer money at all. They employ thou-sands of workers in good-pay-ing USA jobs. If you dont want to hear trains dont live near the railroad tracks or airplanes dont live near an airport. We do have a choice where we live. I would say to CSX, KEEP THE TRAINS ROLLING AND THE HORNS BLOWING and we can at least know someone is still with a job.L.F. CarterLake CityNo more horns This is in response to the person who felt I should do some-thing else with my $1,400 other than making the railroad crossing much safer than just blowing its horn. While I sit here on my large plantation (120x150 ft. lot) drinking my mint-julep on my larger veranda (6x10 ft. slab) I hear a low rumble in the distance. My cowboys are surely mov-ing my large herd of cattle (one Maltese puppy). As the rumble approaches I discovered its just another one of CSXs freight trains. As it gets right even (150 feet away) with my plantation (standard home of 1800 sq. ft.) it gives a deafening outburst with its 190 DB large horn that can be heard over two miles away. My mint julep goes flying into the air spoiling my clothes, the veranda furniture (plastic chairs) and the concrete slab. This will make our downstairs maid (my wife of 22 years) very mad. P.S. we dont have an upstairs. If the person who commented on my article wants to make an donation equivalent to my $1,400, my promise to him is that I will buy a railroad train whistle, and install it on his automobile where he can blow it any time he likes so his children will not miss the great horn sound that the trains make. Train whistles on autos are illegal in most states but are avail-able on the Internet at hundreds of sites. Putting all satire aside the Federal Code of Regulations, Title 49 paragraph 222.25 says the following and I quote This rule does not require the routine sounding of locomotive horns at private highway rail grade crossings. Florida statutes do not address train horn blowing at private crossings. Many, many cities, towns, etc. in Florida have initiated train horn bans. As the CSX tracks in Columbia County go through some of the most populated areas, I strongly feel that our government should be making plans for banning the train horn blowing. Regulations are much stricter and the cost would be great, therefore I still feel the government should do anything they can to make CSX pay a large part of this expense. Considering all, and if I can get the train horns to stop blowing at this private crossing I hope the commenter on my previous article that his children still grow up to be well-adjusted adults. If he feels it necessary I hope he buys himself a train horn.

Weve got it.Two interstate highways cross here, a pair of Class 1 rail lines bisect the county, and now the crown jewel is in place a beautiful new airport terminal, nestled up against an 8,000-foot runway big enough to land a 747. Just the right package to attract businesses of all kinds, especially those dependent on shipping, whatever the route. But thats not all weve got.We have a team that can get things done when it comes to bringing industry and jobs to the area. That includes our Economic Development Department led by Jesse Quillen, along with city and county governments fully committed to doing what it takes to gun the economic engine. And, just as importantly, they all work together toward that common aim. We cant predict the future, and we dont claim to know when the economic picture will return to full normalcy. But we do know this: Were as well-positioned as can be for when that time comes. Meanwhile, we are making strides that others in the region would love to boast of. Plans for the Catayst site east of town are faling into place. Although, as noted Friday in this space, we may need a little help from above meaning Tallahassee to make that hap-pen just the way we want. Regardless, no ones resting on his or her laurels here.

Crown jewel now inplace Q The Washington Times OPINION Sunday, June 10, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A ANOTHER OPINION P resident Obama takes umbrage at the idea that a spate of leaks of highly clas-sified national-security information is somehow purposefully intended to bolster his leadership credentials. His resistance to an independent investigation will only make things worse for him. The Obama White House is leaking like a sieve. On Friday, Mr. Obama took the charges of selective leaks head-on: The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national-security information is offen-sive, he said. Its wrong, and people I think need to have a better sense of how I approach this office and how the people around me here approach this office. His protestations carry little credibility. On the previous day, the White House rejected a bipartisan call by leaders of the House and Senate intelligence committees to appoint a special counsel to investigate the leaks. Even very liberal legislators are worried about the brew-ing crisis of administration staff leaks. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, told CNN on Thursday, Ive been on the Intelligence Committee for 11 years and I have never seen it worse. Mr. Obamas high dudgeon about the temerity of accusations of White House impropriety will not be enough to save his team from scrutiny. There have been leaks about drone strikes, U.S. special operations and foreign classi-fied information such as Israels alleged deal with Azerbaijan to support a military strike against Iran. There have been leaks to newspapers, TV and Hollywood screenwriters. Some leaks have been more damag-ing than others. One story that broke last month detailed a CIA informant penetrating high levels of al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula, making off with their most sophisticated new bomb and providing information leading to a successful drone strike on a leading militant. The information fed to the public portrayed the operation as a major success, but intelligence specialists were alarmed at the amount of detail that was leaked. Embarrassingly, it soon turned out that this was not an American-led effort at all but a long-term British-Saudi opera-tion that was compromised by the very leaks that trumpeted its success and erroneously attributed credit to the United States. This does seem to be a tawdry political thing, former CIA bin Laden hunter Michael Scheur said at the time. The White House may feel that these leaks will somehow help with the 2012 campaign. Some polling suggests that for the first time in a long time, Democrats have an edge on the question of which party can better handle national security. No matter, that issue will not be decisive in this years election. Two weeks ago, a CNN/ORC poll showed that on a list of top national priorities, only 5 per-cent of respondents mentioned terrorism, and it has been in single digits for months if not years. Other polls over the past few months have had mostly the same results: Terrorism was in the single digits, if it was men-tioned at all. The decisive issues for 2012 are jobs and the economy, which usually are mentioned as the nations top priorities by a majority of respondents. The only reason there are no leaks coming from the White House about the economy is that there is nothing positive to leak.

CANDIDATES: Field set Continued From Page 1A Toms Place had live entertainment like: Tom Grant, Tommy Cash (brother of Johnny), Bill Haleys Comets, Michael Twitty (Conways son), Joey Dee (of Joey Dee and the Starliters), Becky Hobbs, Sonny Wright and Peggy Sue (sister of Loretta Lynn), among others. Every other Thursday, a performer out of Nashvilles Grand Ole Opry, would perform and on alternate Thursdays, a 50s rock and roll band from New York, Chicago, Detroit and elsewhere would take the stage. I enjoyed the restau rant and I enjoyed the bar most of the time, Stinson said. I just couldnt get enough of the music. My son worked with me and all these guys around town in the music busi ness were working with me. I really enjoyed it. Stinson also owned Toms Sea Cruise, a restaurant and lounge, located near where U.S. 41 and U.S. 441 meet south of town. If the name Sea Cruise sounds familiar, it should. That was the title of a 1959 top-20 hit by Frankie Ford, a regular at Toms Place. Ford performed the song which is featured on the soundtrack of the film American Graffiti at the opening of the restaurant some years later. Stinson never owned the lounge when it was called Legends, but after he sold Toms he later repurchased it and named it Tom and Jerrys. Jerry was his brother. Toms was a special place for residents because I tried to keep it as good as I could and keep the drugs out of it as good as I could, he said. If I saw a guy doing or selling drugs I would tell him not to come in my place again for two weeks. After that, if you do it one more time, Im going to have to get the law involved. The first time its on me, but the second time its between you and the law. Stinson, who continues to recuperate from multi ple strokes, was filled with smiles, laughter and mem ories as he and his wife, Judy, looked at old photos and reminisced about past performers who came to Lake City to play at the lounge. Hearing that the for mer lounge site was being demolished in the name of progress didnt seem to take away from the Stinsons memories and their willingness to talk about the glory days of Toms and Tom and Jerrys. Tom Stinson offered his thoughts about his former lounge being demolished to make way for a new business. To me Toms was a leg end, he said. Its been a legend ever since 1956. I suppose times have got to change.... Time has got to change with everybody. Stinson said he finally sold the lounge to Jerry Sullivan and Bill Koon in 2001 or 2002. The lounge was finally closed due to its inability to pass code inspections. WATER: County balks Continued From Page 1A fine for the fourth offense. However, SRWMD Director of Mission Support Melanie Roberts said "pen alties may be harsher" with out the county ordinance. Breaking water-use rules is a second degree misde meanor, punishable by jail and up to $500 fine, accord ing to Roberts. She added, We're hop ing not to have to do that. Our goal is to educate. Williams said the issue of water management in the district and the JEA permit issued by St. Johns Water Management District causes him to get every emotional. SRWMD did nothing to protect our interests in my book, Williams said. If they want a public hearing, let them call one for themselves, he said. The JEA permit allows the utility to withdraw 155 million gallons of water per day from the Floridan aqui fer for up to 20 years. Roberts said she under stands the frustration of Columbia commissioners. They make a good argu ment, Roberts said. Still, SRWMD is geared to protect the districts water. We have to protect our water here, she said. We'll do it drop by drop if we have to. WATER USE RESTRICTIONS House addresses ending in 0 or 1 may only irrigate on Monday.

By TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI LeBron James finally got a Game 7 victory, on his third try. Next up, the NBA finals and his third try at that elusive first championship. James had 31 points and 12 rebounds, Chris Bosh hit a career-best three 3-point-ers the last sparking the run that put it away and the Miami Heat won their second straight Eastern Conference title by beating the Boston Celtics 101-88 in Game 7 on Saturday night. Miami opens the title series in Oklahoma City on Tuesday night. Dwyane Wade scored 23 and Shane Battier added 12 for the Heat, who won a Game 7 for the first time since 2004 Wades rookie season. Rajon Rondo finished with 22 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds for Boston, which got 19 points from Paul Pierce in what might be the last game of the Big Four era for the Celtics. Down by seven at the half and eight early in the third quarter, Miami start-ed clawing back. An 8-0 run tied it at 59-all, capped by Wade hitting a jumper, and then the fun really started. There were six lead changes and five more ties in the final 7 minutes of the third. Bosh scored with 29 seconds left for the last of those ties, and it was 73-all going into the fourth. Bosh his third 3-pointer with 7:17 left. James made a runner on the next Miami trip, and suddenly the Heat had their biggest lead of the night to that point, 88-82 with 6:54 remaining. The lead was 95-86 with 3:23 left. Boston called time and the building was rocking. By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comPlaying on fields that received 10 inches of rain on Thursday and Friday, the Lake City Rookie Qualifier had a good run in Saturdays opening round. With 28 games scheduled in four divisions, the Babe Ruth 8-under all-stars completed 20 of the games before more rain set in at the Southside Sports Complex. Local all-star teams Lake City and Columbia got their games in, but both ended in defeat. Fort Whites game was scheduled for 6 p.m., but the weather closed down the complex a few minutes after 5. Lake City lost to the PVAA (Ponte Vedra) Sharks, 7-5. Lake City fell behind 5-0, then tied the game in the third inning. Those were the last runs for Lake City and the Sharks scored twice in the bottom of the fourth inning for the winning margin. The bottom of the hitting order came up big in Lake Citys rally. Austin McInnis led off with a double and Ty Floyd singled him to third. Braxton Johnson had a double to score McInnis. Mason Gray and Zach Shaw followed with RBI-singles. After a force out, Gray scored on a ground ball by Parker Steele. Ty Folsom added a single and Sid Parris drove in Kade Jackson with another single. Lake City plays Winter Park and Palm Beach Gardens Red today, then will face CCPAL at noon on Monday. Columbia lost to Jacksonville Beach 8B, 14-4, in a game called in the bottom of the fourth inning because of the time limit. Columbia fell behind 7-0 in the first inning, then cut into the lead with four runs in the third inning.

Associated PressGAINESVILLE Not even two rain delays total-ing nearly 3 hours slowed Florida. Mike Zunino homered and drove in three runs, Hudson Randall pitched seven scoreless innings and the Gators beat North Carolina State 7-1 in the opener of their best-of-three NCAA super regional series Saturday. The top-seeded Gators (46-18) improved to 9-0 against Atlantic Coast Conference teams this season and need one more win to advance to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb., for the third consecutive year. Florida and N.C. State play Game 2 today. The Wolfpack (43-19) will send undefeated left-hander Carlos Rodon to the mound with their season on the line. Florida led 5-0 behind Randalls gem when heavy rain halted the game for 2 hours, 3 minutes in the bottom of the seventh. The game had a second stoppage, this one for 48 minutes, in the eighth.FSU postponedTALLAHASSEE Saturday s scheduled sec-ond game in the NCAA super regionals between Florida State and Stanford was postponed because of rain. It has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. today. The Seminoles (47-16) have a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three series. Stanford (41-17) needs to win the second game to force a deciding third game on Monday. NCAA officials waited roughly 90 minutes Saturday as a steady rain fell and the weather radar showed little letup for the next several hours.FSU 17, Stanford 1Florida State coach Mike Martin said Stanfords Mark Appel was the best pitcher he has seen this season. Luckily for Martin and his Seminoles, Appel couldnt get anything good going Friday night. Florida State (47-15) chased Appel with seven runs in the fourth inning. Devon Travis homered twice and drove in six runs and Florida State took advantage of Appels wild-ness on its way to a 17-1 victory over Stanford in the opener of their best-of-three NCAA super regional. The Seminoles batted around in the fourth and fifth innings to build an 11-1 lead. Travis, a second baseman drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 13th round earlier this week, singled in a run in the fourth, hit a two-run homer in the sixth and belted a three-run shot in the seventh. Freshman left-hander Brandon Leibrandt (8-2) pitched six innings before leaving with a 14-1 lead. He struck out four and was backed by three double plays. Appel (10-2) was hurt by wildness and an error by Kenny Diekroeger, who booted a potential double play grounder as Florida State scored its first run.

He scored when the pic-ture dropped a pop-up on a diving catch off the bat of Zane Starling. Evan Umstead followed with a single and was forced at second by Matthew Dumas. Hayden Gustavson hit a ground ball through the legs of the shortstop to score Starling. Dumas and Gustavson scored on singles by John Hendry and Jacob Haines.

ASSOCIATED PRESSJockey John Velazquez (right) drives Union Rags past Paynter and jockey Mike Smith to the finish line for victo ry in the Belmont Stakes horse race at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y., o n Saturday. Union Rags gets the richesBy BETH HARRISAssociated PressNEW YORK Union Rags picked up where Ill Have Another left off coming from behind to catch a Bob Baffert-trained horse at the finish in a Triple Crown race. In Saturdays Belmont Stakes, it was even a photo finish. Union Rags rallied through an opening on the rail to edge Paynter by a neck, dealing Baffert a third loss in this years Triple Crown series. Ill Have Another won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness with stir-ring stretch drives over Bafferts Bodemeister. But the champion stunned the racing world Friday when he was scratched from the Belmont and retired due to a tendon injury, relinquish-ing a shot at the first Triple Crown sweep since 1978 and only the 12th ever. His absence opened up the race for Union Rags, who finished a troubled seventh in the Derby. A crowd of 85,811 cheered as Paynter and Union Rags battled down the stretch, and Union Rags barely caught the front-runner at the end to win by a neck. Trained by Michael Matz, Union Rags skipped the Preakness and switched jockeys for the Belmont from Julien Leparoux to John Velazquez, who picked up his second Belmont victory; he won in 2007 with filly Rags to Riches. I have to give it to the horse. He did it all for me. He just worked so unbeliev-able and I was just hoping he could put that work into todays race and he did, Velazquez said. I was very proud of him. Union Rags was along the inside in the middle of the pack until it was time to make a move for the lead. Velazquez guided Union Rags to the inside of the front-running Paynter and relentlessly closed the gap and won by a neck. The 5-2 second choice behind Dullahan, Union Rags covered the 1 12 miles in 2:30.42. The colt is owned by Phyllis Wyeth. It was my dream and he made it come true, said Wyeth, wheelchair-bound as the result of a 1962 car accident in which she broke her neck. He ran a great, great race, but Im not too proud of my performance, though, said Smith, a 46-year-old Hall of Fame jockey who was aboard Bodemeister in the two earlier defeats. Im an old veteran, you know. Theyre not supposed to get through on the fence on me, and he did. I dropped the ball. My fault.

It was his approach when the Thunder were 3-29. Its the same now that hes led the team to the NBA finals just three years later Durant has never been about glitz and glamour. His winning combination has been humility and hard work, and it may soon pay off. The Thunder need four more wins to win a championship in only their fourth season in Oklahoma City and fulfill Durants ultimate goal. Theres always another level you can go to. In basketball, you always can be better at some-thing, I think, Durant said Saturday after Oklahoma Citys practice. I havent seen a guy that totally dominates the game in every aspect. He cant make every shot, he cant get every rebound, he cant get every assist, so I think you can get better. Thats the mindset I take. Durant has gotten his fair share in each of those categories, particu-larly this season. Durant became the seventh player in league history to win three straight scoring titles, averaging 28 points per game, and set career highs in shooting per-centage, 3-point shooting, rebounding, assists and blocks. And yet hes still driven to want more. I wouldnt say Im satisfied, Durant said. Im happy that I progressed a little bit. I have a long ways to go and I think that if I continue to just keep getting better at the mental part of the game watching film and knowing where the defense is going to play, knowing where my teammates are going to be then I can get better. Ive just got to keep improving. As Durant approached his first chance to leave even as a restricted free agent there became growing concern about whether a budding super-star would want to remain in one of the leagues smallest markets without as many opportunities to make money and promote himself. Instead, he even skipped the chance to put an opt-out clause in his maximum contract to stay five more years in Oklahoma City. My job is to come in here and get better every day as a basketball player, and being here provides me the best opportunity to do so, Durant said.
4B LAKE CITY REPORTER GOLF SUNDAY, JUNE 10, 2012 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 4BSports US OPEN HOLES 060812 : Graphic illustrates course and holes at The Olympic Club; with BC-GLF--US Open; 6c x 14 inches; ED; E T A 6 p.m. Pay no attention to the yardage. This is another difficult hole, with a tight fairway beyond 270 yards that might force players to opt for 3wood or hybrid off the tee. The approach is to an elevated green that is both shallow and severely sloped from back to front. An extra club is needed for the elevation change, yet anything long makes for a very difficult par. The opposite of No. 4, this hole bends to the right with the fairway sloping to the left. Large trees guard the right side of the tee shot. The difference is that the approach shot plays downhill, with help from a prevailing wind, and the green is relatively straightforward. A new tee means this will play some 50 yards longer than it did in 1998. This hole is unique in that it has the only fairway bunker on the course, but the new tee means players will need a 295-yard drive if they choose to carry it. Because players could clear the bunker at the turn of his slight dogleg left in 1998, they were left with a wedge. Expect to see longer clubs this time. The first hole that offers a realistic shot at birdie, and the one par 4 that can be reached from the tee. Players who hit iron off the tee will have a sand wedge to the green. Around the green, there is only 5to 6-inch rough to increase the penalty for those trying to drive the green, which also is guarded by bunkers. This fairway also was shifted, to the left, to create a sharper left-to-right dogleg. Players can smash a driver here, though that could lead to a hanging lie because of the slope in the fairway. The two-tiered green slopes from back to front. This will play 35 yards longer than in 1998, starting with a claustrophobic tee shot because of the chute of Monterey pine and cypress trees. The fairway has been shifted slightly to the left. The approach shot, again most likely featuring a hanging lie, is to a green with bunkers and a closely mown collection area. The shortest par 3 at Olympic, this will be a 9-iron or wedge, but accuracy is paramount. Similar to the short par-4 seventh, there will be only the deep, 5to 6-inch around for those missing the green. Still, this is the best birdie opportunity on the par 3s. With a new tee that wont be used every day, this becomes the longest hole in U.S. Open history. If length isnt enough, it's a sharp dogleg to the left and the fairway narrows right at 300 yards. The hole continues to bend to the left until the green, and shots that miss the green long or to the left will bounce even farther away because of the closely mown grass beyond the green. For the first time in a U.S. Open at Olympic, this will be a par 5 instead of a par 4. That doesnt make the drive any easier, because the fairway slopes more severely (to the right) than any other hole. Players have to hit a hard draw to eliminate the roll to the right. Finding the fairway or first cut leaves a good chance to reach the green in two. The green slopes strongly from left to right and back to front, and any approach missing long or to the right will tumble down a collection area under the trees. One bad shot eliminates the ease of birdie. Its not the toughest closing hole in a U.S. Open, but its the signature hole at Olympic, with the clubhouse on the horizon. This offers a birdie, but the tee shot (most likely a 3-iron) must find the narrow fairway. The approach is semiblind because of the elevated green, and players will be able to see only the top half of the flagstick. The green slopes from back to front and is surrounded by thick rough. A new tee offers an incredible view of San Francisco, including the top of the Golden Gate bridge on a clear day. More daunting is the hole, which plays downhill to a relatively small green and is guarded by bunkers on both sides. The USGA also will use a forward tee from about 230 yards. Even from the tips, expect the players to be hitting a long to mid-iron because of the change in elevation. This is a new hole and will play about 60 yards longer. The clubhouse is perched above the green, and a large hill to the right will provide a natural amphitheater. The green slopes from right to left and is set at an angle. Any shot veering too far left could catch a large cypress tree. The shape of the tee shot is important. In classic Olympic fashion, the fairway bends sharply to the left, but the ground slopes to the right. The fairway narrows at 265 yards, leaving an uphill approach from a hanging lie to a difficult green that slopes severely from back left to front right. The green drops off sharply, with a collection area to the right.

Players should still be able to play a shot from the hazard if they wind up there. Par 4 Y ards 419 Par 5 Y ards 522 The angle on this left-to-right hole has been enhanced by moving the fairway several yards to the right, making it more likely that a tee shot could run through the fairway.

The fairway bends to the right, and the turf slopes strongly to the left toward Lake Merced. The green has bunkers on each side close to the front, and a closely mown area from the middle and back portions could present more problems for errant shots.

Instead of a record fifth U.S. Open for Ben Hogan, Olympic delivered Jack Fleck in one of golfs big gest upsets. Arnold Palmer turned his pursuit of a record score into a royal collapse. Tom Watson had his heart broken in San Francisco when Scott Simpson ran off a late string of birdies. The way this year is unfolding, Olympic seems like the ideal location. Hardly anything has gone according to plan. Tiger Woods already has won twice this year, most recently last week at the Memorial with a ballstriking clinic and a chip shot that brought back some of that magic. That made him the betting favor ite to end his four-year drought in the majors with a record-tying fourth U.S. Open. Only its not that simple. Two months ago, Woods won Bay Hill by five shots and became an instant favorite at the Masters. Instead of slipping on the green jacket, he turned in his worst performance as a pro at Augusta National, starting the worst threetournament stretch of his career. He goes to the Masters and he fell apart because of nerves for the first time in his career, Johnny Miller said. So I dont know what to think of Tiger Woods at the Open. I dont know if that was learned from Augusta, or something he cant control. Defending champion Rory McIlroy returned to No. 1 in the world just over a month ago and looked like the player to beat until the 23-year-old from Northern Ireland missed three cuts, threw a club and suddenly looked lost. Rickie Fowler, finally a winner on the PGA Tour, was poised to take his popu larity to new heights until he shot 84 at Muirfield Village playing in the second-tolast group with Woods. Phil Mickelson played in the last group of the Masters and fell out of contention when Lefty hit consecutive shots from the right side. The green jacket went to another lefty, Bubba Watson, a big hitter who never liked the notion that the short est distance between two points is a straight line. Golf is difficult to pre dict even in steady times. Theres no telling what to expect when the 112th U.S. Open returns to The Olympic Club on June 14-17 for the fifth time. History would suggest there are more surprises in store on the golf course built on the side of a hill just south of the Golden Gate Bridge. You think about the past national Opens here that have been played ... and in some ways you think, Geez, you remember more about who didnt win what great legend didnt win an Open here versus who did win, USGA executive director Mike Davis said. Adding to the intrigue is the parity that has taken over golf over the last few years. Ever since Padraig Harrington ended the 2008 season with consecutive majors, 14 players have won the last 14 majors. Predictions, anyone? Perhaps the only safe bet is that Olympic wont be a pushover. McIlroy shattered U.S. Open scoring records last year at Congressional when he reached double figures under par before he even finished his second round. Because of soft condi tions from rain earlier in the week, he finished at 268 to break the record 72-hole record by four shots, and his 16-under par was four better than Woods at Pebble Beach in 2000. The USGA didnt lose much sleep when Woods finished at 12-under 272 at Pebble Beach because no one else was under par and he won by 15. Congressional was differ ent. McIlroy won by eight shots, but 20 players broke par, the most since 1990 at Medinah, a par 72. Remember, the year after Johnny Miller shot 63 to win at Oakmont in 1973, the U.S. Open was as tough as ever. Hale Irwin finished at 7-over par and still won by two shots at Winged Foot. Payback time? Davis almost guaranteed a tough er U.S. Open, though not from anything the USGA has cooked up. Were trying to make it the toughest test of the year. It didnt happen last year, Davis said. Miller was a junior member at Olympic as a teenager, and he was low amateur in 1966 the year Billy Casper chased down mistake-prone Palmer. He knows what to expect from Olympic, with its tight fair ways that bend one way and slope another, and its tiny greens. Congressional, it was a good course, but it was almost like a tour course, Miller said. Its not going to be so much fun and games out there. Its going to be hard work, and I think a sterner test. Olympic is nearly 200 yards longer than when Lee Janzen won at even-par 280 in 1998. Its going to be a hell of a test, Woods said. Dont be surprised if Woods or Mickelson get into contention. And dont be surprised if they lose out to someone not quite as famous. Olympic has a knack for doing that in the U.S. Open. The four U.S. Open cham pions at Olympic combined for seven majors in their career. The four players who were runner-up com bined for 27. Were trying to make it the toughest test of the year. It didnt happen last year. Mike Davis, USGA executive director

By EDDIE PELLS Associated Press PARIS The picture she posed for at the begin ning foreshadowed a mis match in the making: 6-foot2 Maria Sharapova standing at the net, towering over an opponent nearly 10 inches smaller than her. The pictures snapped at the end told a different story: Sharapova, down on her knees after a tougherthan-expected win, head buried in her hands, cel ebrating after completing a comeback three years in the making and cementing her name among the great est in tennis. The Russian star won the French Open on Saturday, defeating her tiny Italian opponent, Sara Errani, 6-3, 6-2 in the final at Roland Garros to complete the career Grand Slam. I believe in my game, Sharapova said. I think thats one of the reasons Im sitting here with my fourth one and winning Roland Garros, because I always believed I could be a better player. Sharapova, seeded sec ond and who was guaran teed of moving to No. 1 in the rankings regardless of the result, jumped to a quick 4-0 lead against the 21st-seeded Errani, who was in her first Grand Slam final. But Errani battled back on a cool, blustery day in Paris, turning what had the makings of a blowout into an 89-minute endurance contest, filled with long ral lies that forced Sharapova to find another gear. Eventually, Sharapovas bigger serve and bigger groundstrokes wore down the 5-4 1 2 Errani. She won many points with her serve or in the first two or three shots, Errani said. It was difficult. I couldnt play long points like I wanted to play. When Errani netted a short backhand on the third match point, Sharapova dropped gingerly to the clay to start the celebra tion, then reached back and looked heavenward a long, hard road back to the top finally capped with the only major title that had eluded her. Sharapova won the tro phy at Roland Garros about three years after dropping as low as 126th in the rank ings after shoulder surgery that threatened her career. She rededicated herself to the game and made a spe cial effort to improve on red clay, the surface on which she moved to 16-0 this year. She did it knowing it wasnt really necessary. Shes a millionaire many times over, her endorse ment cachet full as com fortable on the red carpet as she now is on the red clay. Ive had so many outs and I couldve said I dont need this, she said. I couldve said, Ive got the money, Ive got the fame, Ive got the career victories and Grand Slams. But when your love for the game is bigger than those things, thats when you continue to get up. She added this years French Open title to cham pionships at Wimbledon in 2004, the U.S. Open in 2006 and the Australian Open in 2008 to become only the 10th woman to win all four major tournaments, joining players such as Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Serena Williams and Billie Jean King. It was Sharapovas 27th overall career title. Shell be back at No. 1 in the WTA rankings Monday for the first time since June 2008, though this win reminded her of a scene a few years before that. Back in 2004, Sharapova was 17, just becoming a name on the tennis scene when she swept into Roland Garros and made a surprise trip to the quarterfinals. A preview of things to come: A month later, she won Wimbledon and every one knew her name. I thought when I won Wimbledon at 17, that would be the most treasured moment in my career, she said. But when I fell down on my knees today, I realized this is extremely special, even more so. The lopsided score in the final wasnt all that unex pected, given the size, expe rience and power advantage Sharapova brought to her first meeting with Errani. But really, the score didnt tell the whole story. Errani, who won the dou bles title Friday and will move to the top 10 in singles for the first time Monday, struck a victory for any athlete, from the pros to the playground, who has ever looked up at an opponent towering over them by a foot and said, Hey, maybe I can do this. Despite spinning serves in at 70-80 mph, while Sharapova was topping out in the 115 mph range, Errani played Sharapova toe-to-toe for the better part of the hour and a half, especial ly after she overcame the jitters in the shaky opening games. Eventually, Sharapovas power game won out but Errani fought to the bit ter end showing the savvy to hit two drop shots that won points in the final game, each of them send ing Sharapova scrambling toward the net, only to arrive a split second late. Still, Sharapova finished the match with 25 winners from the baseline compared to four for Errani, while committing 29 unforced errors to 11 for her oppo nent. Sharapova also led in aces, 6-0, including one that set up the third and final match point the one match point that had been missing in an otherwise stellar career. Its a long journey, she said. It started from a very young age and its not over yet. Im not sitting here and saying Im done because Im far from it. I have a lot more in me to achieve. Then mens final between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic is 9 a.m. today. 6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JUNE 10, 2012 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 6BSPORTS 386-755-4007 ShandsLakeShore.com NOT READY TO REPLACE THAT ACHING KNEE?

ASSOCIATED PRESSJoey Logano (left) is congratulated by his Home Depot Toyota Camry crew chief Jason Ratcliff after winning the pole position for the Pocono 400 auto race at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa., on Saturday. Logano wins pole with track record at Pocono By DAN GELSTON Associated Press LONG POND, Pa. Thanks to a repave that led to blistering speeds, Pocono Raceways track record was topped 36 times. Joey Logano had the fastest speed of them all. Logano turned a lap of 179.598 mph on Saturday to set the track record during qualifying for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Pocono. Logano won his first pole of the season and fourth in 125 career Sprint Cup starts. He drove the No. 20 Toyota around the 2 1 2 -mile track in 50.112 seconds. Its cool to get a pole here, Logano said. A new track record, too. Logano went out 18th out of 44 cars and waited for about 45 minutes until the final qualifying lap was turned and he could celebrate. Kasey Kahne held the record of 172.533 mph set on June 11, 2004. Consider this: Kahne starts 10th Sunday and went 177.823 mph. Carl Edwards joins Logano on the front row for Sundays 400-mile race. Paul Menard, Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin round out the top five. Joe Gibbs Racing put Logano, Busch and Hamlin in the top five. Drivers have raved about a repave that points leader Greg Biffle said was glass smooth at 200 mph. Pocono had absorbed decades of criticism from drivers who said the race was too long, outdated, and unsafe. Pocono cut the race to 400 miles for the two Cup races this season and recent safety upgrades have driv ers suddenly raving about the track. Its a new era at Pocono. Logano and the rest of the field posted the speeds to prove it. The pole continues a recent uptick of solid results for Logano. Only 22, Logano is entering a make-or-break season at JGR in the final year of a four-year deal. Hes insisted in the past his contract sta tus has not added pressure to him. Considered a phe nom when he broke into NASCAR, Loganos lone Cup win came in 2009. Hes fared much better on the second-tier Nationwide Series. Logano has 13 career Nationwide wins, four this season, including last week at Dover International Speedway. Every time weve been in position to win a race, weve won that race, Logano said.

BROWN email@example.com ELLISVILLE-A year after the installation of water and sewer utilities in the Ellisville area, county government is beginning to formulate a rede velopment plan for the blight ed landscape of Ellisville. The goal is to make Ellisville more financially sus tainable, senior staff assistant David Kraus said. In the past couple of years, because of the condition of properties, because of the vacancies, the property values the past cou ple years have actually fallen out there. So were hoping we can put some money into it, fix it up, cause the property values to increase. The Ellisville redevelop ment plan will be structured in a similar manner as the Community Redevelopment Agency plan in downtown Lake City. Kraus said the area does not qualify as a CRA because it does not have schools or other agencies required by state ordinance to be eligible. However, Kraus said finan cial support for the area will be structured in much the same way. Based on any increase in the value of property, any increase in the collection of taxation from that area from the base year would then be used to put back into the area for redevelopment projects, Kraus said. Additionally, the area may qualify for a brownfield des ignation, which is defined as property of which the expan sion, redevelopment or resuse of may be complicated by actual or perceived environ mental contamination. Contamination has been found in Ellisville. An abandoned truck stop south of Interstate 75 is con taminated with a petroleum leak from underground tanks. According to Kraus, the property is currently being monitored by the Department of Environmental Protection. The perception of contami nation is also an issue. The conditions of a lot of the properties tend to give it a blighted feel, Kraus said. Ellisville to get a makeover Redevelopment plan will benefit blighted landscape COURTESY Map of the Ellisville area, to which county officials hope to bring new life. ELLISVILLE continued on 2C
So it qualifies very well for a brownfield designa-tion, which gives people access to grants, gives them access to tax credits through the state, a lot of things that otherwise they might not have access to. Kraus said he believes the area is an ideal loca-tion for certain types of industrial development. Its halfway between Gainesville and Lake City. Youre far enough from (US) 90 that youre not interfering with the development thats on 90. Now that theres water and sewer there it really does make it a lot more market-able for industrial develop-ment, Kraus said. He also believes the area has potential for more commercial types of devel-opment as well. A lot of different kinds of industrial activity could be invited here, now that this is happenning, Kraus said. But we want to try and make it nicer, spruce it up, make it more appealing and inviting for businesses if you want to market it for economic development. Fabulous Coach Lines, a motorcoach service from the Southeast area that travels across North America, moved into the Ellisville area about a month ago. The coach service currently occupies around nine acres of land. President of Fabulous Coach Lines Ray Land said the service has big plans for the location that will be developing over the next few months. Kraus said it would probably be one or two years before the the proj-ect coordinators become serious about putting the parties together. But the thought is, if you plan for it now, if you set the table for it now, when the economy does turn around you will be ready to go, Kraus said. If you wait two years to start planning, you may be too late. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 10, 2012 To achieve investment success, you dont have to start out with a huge sum or get lucky by picking hot stocks. In fact, very few people actually travel those two routes. But in working toward your investment goals, you need to be persistent and one of the best ways to demonstrate that persistence is to invest automatically. How do you become an automatic investor? You simply need to have your bank automatically move money each month from a checking or savings account into the LQYHVWPHQWVRI\RXUFKRLFH:KHQ\RXUHUVWstarting out in the working world, you may not be able to afford much, but any amount even if its just $50 or $100 a month will be valuable. Then, as your career progresses and your income rises, you can gradually increase your monthly contributions. By becoming an automatic investor, you FDQJDLQVRPHNH\EHQHWVLQFOXGLQJWKHVH Discipline Many people think about investing but decide to wait until they have a little extra cash. Before they realize it, theyve used the money for other purposes. When you invest automatically, youre essentially taking a spending decision out of your hands. And as you see your accounts grow over time, your investment discipline will be self-reinforcing. Long-term focus Theres never any shortage of events political crises, economic downturns, natural disasters that cause investors to take a timeout from investing. Yet if you head to the investment sidelines, even for a short while, you might miss out on some good opportunities. By investing automatically each month, youll maintain a long-term focus. Potential for reduced investment costs If you invest the same amount of money each month into the same investments, youll automatically be a smart shopper. When prices drop, your monthly investment will buy more shares, and when prices rise, youll buy fewer shares just as youd probably buy less of anything when prices are high. Over time, this type of systematic investment typically results in lower costs per share. Furthermore, when you invest systematically, youre less likely to constantly buy and sell investments in an effort to boost your returns. This type of frequent trading is often ineffective and it can raise your overall investment costs with potential fees, commissions and taxes. (Keep in mind, though, that systematic investing GRHVQRWJXDUDQWHHDSURWRUSURWHFWDJDLQVWORVV$OVR\RXOOQHHGWKHQDQFLDOUHVRXUFHVavailable to keep investing through up and down markets.) Clearly, automatic investing offers some major advantages to you as you seek to build wealth. Of course, if youre contributing to a 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan, youre already automatically investing because money is taken out of your paycheck at regular intervals to go toward the investments youve chosen in your plan. But by employing automatic investing techniques to other vehicles, such as an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you can continue your progress toward your long-term goals, including retirement. So, do what it takes to become an automatic investor. Its easy, its smart and it can help you work toward the type of future youve envisioned.This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.Automatic Investing Can Pay Off for YouADVERTISEMENT The event also gets significant finan-cial support from the Board of County Commissioners and City of Lake City.

All of the grants will become available for funding starting with VISIT FLORIDAS new fiscal year starting July 1. Tourism numbers remain strong According to the Florida Department of Revenue, Local Option Tourist Development Tax (bed tax) collections have remained strong through the first quarter of 2012. March collections were $67,205, an increase of approximately $5,000 compared to the same month last year. Meanwhile Smith Travel Research shows that occupancy at Columbia County hotels increased 25.5 percent in April with an Average Daily Rate of $71.55. Total room revenues were up 26.9. At the same time, occupancy rates were down in Alachua and Marion counties in Florida and in Lowndes County, Ga. Congratulations to our lodging industry for another strong month. A variety of factors contributed to the strong showing in March and April, including the Wanee Festival, several sports tournaments and the presence of firefighters involved in the Osceola National Park fire. Sports tournaments on the way As festivals begin to diminish, sports action is going into full throttle now that school is out. The months of June and July will see 11 baseball and softball events hosted in the Suwannee River.

Register by July 25.Palms in the land-scape can offer some shade, especially when grown in clusters or in groupings with other ornamental plants. Tall palms can add the element of vertical accent, while short palms can soften corners and provide texture. Whatever their architectural function is in the landscape, palms add a hint of the tropics to the surroundings. If you start out with the right plant in the right place, and plant at the right depth, chances are pretty good that you can be successful at growing a palm. The right palms that are winter hardy for North Florida include cabbage palm, pindo palm, needle palm and dwarf pal-metto. To read about other palms that thrive in North Florida, go to http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/EP019 on the UF/IFAS website. The right place may vary by species, but dont plant palms where the soil stays constantly wet or damp. Palms have root systems completely different from other trees and shrubs that grow in your landscape. At the base of the palm trunk is a single area called the root-initiation zone. All roots emerge and develop from only this area. If the trunk is set too low when transplanting, the roots will suffer from lack of oxygen. If it is transplanted too high in the ground, the undeveloped roots will fail to emerge from the zone and the tree will dry out or fall over from lack of support. A field grown palm should be planted so the root ball is at the same depth as it was in the field. Container-grown palms, however, may have settled or shifted in the potting soil while in the container. Locate the root-initiation zone and posi-tion it 1 below the surface of the soil. Neither field grown nor container-grown palms should have any soil amend-ments added at the time of planting. If you already have a palm in the landscape that is too shallow, you can mound up soil to cover this zone. Roots will soon emerge and grow down to help anchor the plant. Palms that are planted too deeply, however, may decline from suffocating roots. Recently planted palms can be lifted and reset. Established palms may last for several years, but can suddenly give up and die at any time. Regular watering is important until newly transplanted palms are established, usually about four to six months. Field grown palms have roots cut during digging. For many species, this will cause the roots to die so the tree must grow all new roots from the root-initiation zone. During this period of new root emergence, the palm must live on stored water in the trunk. Most of the leaves are usually removed so that little water is lost through the foliage. Thats why large newly planted palms have had such a severe hair cut. By CRISTINA SILVAAssociated PressLAS VEGAS The nation's newest Miss USA winner is a Rhode Island cellist who describes herself as a nerd and aspires to be more like Hollywood icon Audrey Hepburn. Olivia Culpo shares Hepburn's European heritage and dark brown hair and soon they will share something else. Culpo said after winning her crown Sunday night that she plans to go to Tiffany & Co. in New York and recreate Hepburn's iconic opening scene from "Breakfast at Tiffany's." Culpo, a Boston University sophomore, will take a year off from her studies to tackle her duties as Miss USA and repre-sent the nation in the 61st Miss Universe contest in December. The 20-year-old said she wished she could have shared her crown with her 50 competitors dur-ing the pageant at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Culpo strutted across the stage in a lilac bikini, then donned a flowing fuchsia gown with sparkly trim around her waist and dcol-letage. After making it to the final five, Culpo voiced her support for transgender beauty queens dur-ing the make-or-break interview round. "Would you feel it would be fair that a transgender woman wins the Miss USA title over a natural-born woman?" asked celebrity judge Rob Kardashian. The ques-tion came from a pageant follower on Twitter, a first for the competi-tion. Culpo didn't hesitate before embracing the Miss Universe Organization's recent decision to admit transgender contestants. "I do think that that would be fair, but I can understand that people would be a little appre-hensive to take that road because there is a tradition of natural-born women, but today where there are so many surgeries and so many people out there who have a need to change for a happier life, I do accept that because I believe it's a free country," Culpo said. Culpo said after the pageant that she wasn't put off by the question when she heard it. "This is a free country and to each their own," she said. Culpo said she was short and chubby as a girl, but blossomed after a growth spurt. She spent her summers at band camp after learning to play the cello in sec-ond grade. Her parents are also musicians, and her love for music saw her perform at Symphony Hall in Boston and Carnegie Hall in New York City. Culpo is a 2010 graduate of St. Mary Academy Bay View, an all-girls Catholic school in Riverside, where she was a member of the National Honor Society. She said she comes from a big, Italian family and speaks some Italian. On her Twitter account, she describes her-self as a nerd and model. "I was just so surprised, so shocked, so honored to be there," she said of her win. Rounding out the top five contestants were first runner-up Nana Meriwether of Maryland, second runner-up Audrey Bolte of Ohio, third runner-up Jade Kelsall of Nevada and fourth run-ner-up Jasmyn Wilkins of Georgia. As Meriwether and Culpo held hands waiting for the winner to be announced, Culpo bit her lip and cringed with anticipation. Culpo demonstrated an outgoing personality throughout the competi-tion, blowing a kiss and shimmying across the stage during the opening number. She cited Hepburn as her source of inspiration, noting her many years of volunteer work. "She was beautiful on the outside but also beautiful on the inside," said Culpo, who sang the chorus of "Funny Face" from her favorite movie of the same name after her win. Miss Iowa USA Rebecca Hodge was named Miss Congeniality, and Miss Oregon USA Alaina Bergsma was named the most photogenic. They both won $1,000, but didn't make the top 16. The pageant had three competitions: swimsuit, evening gowns and interview question. The contestants were whittled to 16 after the show's opening fashion show number. The contestants were later narrowed down to a field of 10 and then five. Pop band Cobra Starship performed as the beauty queens mod-eled their string bikinis. Singer Akon danced with the top five dur-ing the evening gown competition. Culpo had one of the more modest dresses of the contest, with many of the beauty queens wearing revealing gowns with bare backs, high slits and sheer fabric. In con-trast, Culpo's flowing gown covered her legs and lower back while revealing some cleavage. The judge's panel included Chef Cat Cora, TV personality Arsenio Hall and singer Joe Jonas. Andy Cohen and Giuliana Rancic stepped in to host. Miss USA 2011 Alyssa Campanella of California crowned Culpo her successor at the end of the night.

By ANNE-MARIE GARCIA Associated Press HAVANA Many people would be leery of cycling through chaotic downtown Havana, sharing its narrow, pot holed streets with the darting scooters, incorrigible jaywalkers and hulking 1950s Detroit clas sics that clog every byway. Felix Guirola does it every day, and not on just any bicycle. Guirola rides 13 feet (4 meters) above the ground atop his homemade super-tall bike, peering over pickup trucks and even buses and without a helmet or other protective gear to break a fall. I feel good up high. I dont get nauseated or dizzy, nothing like that, the 48-year-old Guirola said. Up there I see the scenery better. I feel relaxed. Theres more of a breeze, I breathe it and I feel freer. Since Guirola sold his home in the central province of Ciego de Avila and moved to Havana in November, the odd spectacle of him pedaling around town at eye-level with second-story apartments has become a daily occurrence. But neighbors still turn their heads and gawk, and smiling tourists whip out digital cameras. Its crazy. It must be difficult to keep his balance up there, said Rafael Trejo, a 55-year-old motorist. And when he comes to a stoplight, he must be a ninja to be able to climb down from there. In fact, Guirola more resem bles a daring child on a jungle gym than a deadly assassin. To mount, he has other people sta bilize the bike while he scram bles up the metal frame. When a red light looms, he starts lower ing himself while the bikes still in motion, leaps to the ground and grabs the frame before it can topple. Its easy. ... Its perfectly normal for me, said Guirola, an athletic man of medium stature who practiced judo and boxing in his youth. I never get scared, nor have I fallen, and I obey all traffic laws. Guirola has been riding tall since 1983, when seeing a tan dem bike inspired him to build up instead of out. He said his first tall bike measured 5.3 feet (1.6 meters), and they got pro gressively taller until five years later he was riding 18 feet (5.5 meters) in the air at Ciego de Avila carnivals. That would put Guirola in the ballpark of the world record. A representative of Guinness World Records told The Associated Press in an email that it currently recognizes as the worlds tallest rideable bicycle an 18-foot, 2.5-inch (5.55meter) contraption that was rid den more than 1,000 feet (300 meters) in 2004 by Canadian Terry Goertzen. Guirola is nearing comple tion of another 18-footer to use in Havana, and hes planning a 26-footer (8 meters) sometime in the future. But he said he was returning to Ciego de Avila this week to work out some residen cy issues, so hes not planning an immediate attempt to mount the taller bike. His dream is to earn a living from the bike through tips or performance payments, and along the way honor the mem ory of his disabled sister, who died two decades ago. Guirolas sister Eneida had a brain tumor that was operated on when she was in her early 20s, and after ward had problems with balance and was unable to walk without assistance. After living that way for about a decade she died at age 33. I told her that one day with my giant bike I would make enough money to buy her every thing she needed for her disabil ity, Guirola recalled tearfully. Eneida is no longer around to see me, but I want to keep my promise. And if one day I win an award, Ill give part of the money to help disabled children in Cuba like my sister. For now, the occasional tip isnt enough to pay the bills, and he lives off savings and the meager income from his wifes privately run cafeteria. A welder by trade, Guirola has used the proceeds from the sale of his home to buy parts for the new bike he is building. A nearby workshop charges him a nominal fee for a space to store and work on the bike, which he has yet to try out even though it lacks only the finishing touches. I havent ridden the 5.5-meter one yet, said Guirola, because I want to do it when its painted and all pretty and try to win a Guinness record.

Super-tall bike a new sight in Havana By BARBARA ORTUTAY AP Technology Writer NEW YORK Though Facebook bans children under 13, millions of them have profiles on the site by lying about their age. The company is now testing ways to allow those kids to participate without needing to lie. This would likely be under parental supervision, such as by connecting childrens accounts to their parents accounts. Like many other online services, Facebook prohib its kids under 13 because federal law requires com panies to obtain parental consent if they want to collect information about those children. Such information collection is central to Facebook. Every photo or status update a kid posts on Facebook could count as information collection. Many companies con sider the parental-consent requirement too burden some, so they simply ban all children under 13 instead. But that ban is difficult to enforce. In many cases, parents themselves help children skirt it by setting up profiles for them and lying about their ages. There are an estimated 7.5 million kids under 13 on Facebook, out of more than 900 million users worldwide. In a statement, Facebook noted that many recent reports have high lighted just how difficult it is to enforce age restric tions on the Internet, especially when parents want their children to access online content and services. We are in continuous dialogue with stakehold ers, regulators and other policymakers about how best to help parents keep their kids safe in an evolv ing online environment, the company said. Few details are avail able on the nature of Facebooks tests, which The Wall Street Journal reported on in Mondays editions. Relaxing the ban on younger children could be a long way off, or never get implemented, as hap pens with many features that Facebook tests. The report comes just two weeks after Facebook began trading stock as a public company. Its stock price has fallen in part because of concerns about its ability to keep increas ing revenue and make money from its growing mobile audience. To James Steyer, the CEO of the nonprofit Common Sense Media, Facebooks discussions on permitting young kids to join is about expanding its audience and profits. With the growing concerns and pressure around Facebooks busi ness model, the company appears to be doing what ever it takes to identify new revenue streams and short-term corporate prof its to impress spooked shareholders, Steyer said in a statement. But Stephen Balkan, the CEO of another kidsand-technology nonprofit, the Family Online Safety Institute, disagrees. Balkan, who sits on Facebooks Safety Advisory Board in an unpaid position, said the company has been discussing the issue for more than a year. Thats months before Facebook made regulatory filings in February for its initial pub lic offering of stock, which took place in mid-May. In addition, parents could have final say on whom their kids become friends with on Facebook. ASSOCIATED PRESS A child looks at a laptop displaying Facebook logos in Hyderabad, India.

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 10, 2012 3D HANNIBAL, Mo. A 9month-old Yorkie wasnt about to leave a Missouri rest stop without his master. Mistakenly left behind by an Arkansas truck driver, Rambo waited there for two days until his owner was able to track him down. Rambo jumped out of Michael Siaus rig when Siau stopped at a rest area near Hannibal on Friday, the Hannibal Courier-Post reported. Didnt even cross my mind that he might jump out. He never has before, Siau said. I jumped back in the truck, put it in gear and drove off. And I just thought he was in the back asleep. Siau made it all the way to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, 170 miles to the north, before he realized Rambo was gone. But he knew if he turned around, his schedule would be thrown off and his job jeopardized. Siau was heartbroken. In October, Rambos father, Ollie, who also accompanied Siau on trips, was run over and killed. Siau was so distraught he took six months off work, and the thought of losing another dog was too much to bear. Siau said he was freaking out as he tried to determine where Rambo was lost. He finally concluded the puppy must have gotten out in Missouri. Siau began calling authorities. By Sunday morning, he had learned Hannibal had jurisdic-tion over the rest area. Hannibal animal control officer Tim Ledbetter was sent to the site. Sure enough, little Rambo was there, sitting patiently. But he might not have been there much longer. Ledbetter said a family that had stopped at the rest area was just about to adopt the apparently lost puppy. In about 60 seconds, he would have been gone, Ledbetter said. Siau was in Hannibal Tuesday to pick up his buddy and thank those at the animal shelter who found Rambo and took care of him. When a shelter worker brought the dog out for the reunion, Rambo heard Siau call his name and began to whimper, tremble and squirm. Once in Siaus arms, Rambo climbed up his shoulder and began kissing the back of his neck. Youve never been this excited, Siau said. Siau and Rambo then left for the next stop, Tennessee. From now on, Siau said, hell always make sure Rambo is on board.Q Associated Press Dog, left at Missouri rest area, waits 2 days ASSOCIATED PRESSTruck driver Michael Siau after he was reunited with hi s dog, Rambo, in Hannibal, Mo.

By DAN SEWELLAssociated PressCINCINNATI A suburban Cincinnati high school held onto four graduates diplomas and required community service as punishment for what it describes as overly boisterous cheering by their fami-lies during the graduation ceremony. The mother of one of the graduates, who was one of the leading tacklers on the Mount Healthy school football team, doesnt think he should get flagged for excessive celebration. What does that have to do with him? Traci Cornist told Cincinnati radio station WDBZ. She doesnt dispute there was a lot of loud cheering for Anthony Cornist. Cornist also said she teaches her children to be accountable for their own actions, but she doesnt think he should be punished for what other people do. It took away so much from how happy I was, she said. It makes absolutely no sense. Schools Superintendent Lori Handler said Wednesday the problem wasnt the loudness of the yells, but their long dura-tion, which she said halted the ceremony. After past disruptions, a new policy was implemented this year aimed at mak-ing sure that all parents can hear their childrens names called and celebrated. When they ordered graduation tickets, par-ents agreed that any disruptive behavior would result in their childs diploma being held until 20 hours of community service is completed, she said. Our whole push for this was to make sure that every single students name is heard and recognized, Handler said, add-ing that that most parents are pleased with the new rules. Everybody understands that upfront. Four seniors, of the 205 who went through graduation May 23, were denied their diplomas, she said. When they went to school to pick them up, they got a let-ter from the principal informing them it was being withheld because of excessive cheering by their guests. The students are considered legal graduates, and are free to use their transcripts as they apply for college or jobs, Handler said. Local school boards in Ohio have policymaking powers governing such things as guests graduation ceremony conduct, and schools also sometimes hold diplomas until fees are paid, books returned or other issues are resolved. Handler said the school was very flexible about how the students can complete the service, whether its helping other students, cleaning up around the school or doing something for their communities. Also, other family members can perform service on behalf of the student. Cornist said Anthony is the second of her seven children to graduate from Mount Healthy, and she has another daughter due to graduate next year, so shes not looking for a big fight with the school. But shes very proud of her son and thinks he deserves his diploma. I want him to have it, and he shouldnt have to do anything, she told WDBZ on Tuesday. Hes a good kid. ... Well see. Im praying on it. Ohio school withholds diplomas for cheering This October, 1964 file photo provided by the Ford Motor Co mpany, shows the 1965 Ford Division Car, with a travel tra iler. The type of car a family chooses before a family road trip can help ease discomfort. DETROIT Its an American rite of passage: The family road trip. While everyone loves the destination whether it be the Grand Canyon or the beach a few hours from home not many people relish the time spent in the car. But the type of car you choose can help ease that discomfort. Large sedans or minivans are best for families with younger children, because the windows sit lower and make it easier for kids to look out, says David Champion, senior director of auto testing at Consumer Reports. Station wagons are great, too, because its easier to reach in back and get snacks. When it comes to features, Champion suggests nixing built-in navigation, which can be pricey. Its too hard to talk to those systems over the sound of the kids in the back, and they can be frustrating to deal with while driving. Instead, have a passenger type in the destination on a hand-held navigation device or smart phone. Here are five new or recently redesigned cars and SUVs that are ideal for road trips because of their family-friendly features or great gas mileage. All of them have top ratings from the government or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. And, of course, plenty of cup hold-ers. 1. TOYOTA PRIUS VIf fuel economy is your main concern, consider the Prius V hybrid wagon, which went on sale last fall. The five-seat Prius V gets an estimated 42 miles per gallon in city and highway driving, which isnt as good as the 50-mpg standard Prius small car but better than its non-hybrid competitors among crossovers. Its also roomier than a standard Prius, with 13 additional cubic feet of luggage space behind the rear seats. That cargo space doubles when you fold down the rear seats, which also recline for young nappers. Champion says the Prius V isnt the most comfortable vehicle for a long trip, and its noisier than some competitors, but it can get you further before you have to fill up. The Prius V starts at $26,550. A wellequipped version, with a runroof and a hands-free parallel parking system that parks the car by itself, will set you back $30,140. 2. HONDA CR-VThe CR-V, which was redesigned last fall, is consistently one of the best-selling crossovers in the country. Car buying site Edmunds.com praises the five-seaters car-like ride and fuel economy, which averages 26 miles per gallon. It has 37 cubic feet of cargo space the equivalent of 52 grocery bags behind the rear seats. The CR-V has a lot of standard family-friendly features, including a backup camera and a conversation mirror that makes it easier for parents to see whats going on in the back seat. The CR-V starts at $22,495. To get Hondas rear entertainment system, which has a 7-inch screen mounted above the rear seats and wireless headphones, you have to upgrade to a $27,945 EX-L model. 3. MAZDA5Its hard to beat a minivan for convenience when traveling with a family. The Mazda5, which was redesigned for the 2012 model year, offers minivan ameni-ties like dual sliding doors in a small package thats fun to drive. It seats six, with second-row captains chairs that can recline or fold down for easier access to the third row. Its not as roomy as its rivals, and its four-cylinder engine has less power than their V6s. But it also gets better fuel economy: 28 miles per gallon, compared with 24 on the Toyota Sienna. The Mazda5 starts at $19,625 for a manual transmission. For $1,200, you can add a seven-inch overhead monitor with a remote control and wireless headphones. 4. HYUNDAI AZERAThe redesigned Azera, which went on sale earlier this year, has the most head and leg room of any large sedan and an ample, 16-cubic-foot trunk. For comparisons sake, thats two more cubic feet than the Toyota Avalon, a close com-petitor. Among the Azeras standard features are a backup camera and heated front and rear seats. At 23 miles per gallon, fuel economy isnt great, but its compa-rable to others in the segment. The Azera starts at $32,000.5. FORD FLEXChampions hands-down favorite for a road trip is the Ford Flex, a seven-pas-senger wagon that was redesigned for the 2013 model year and went on sale earlier this year. According to Ford, the Flex has the most secondand third-floor leg room of any large utility vehicle, and theres 43 cubic feet of cargo space if the third row is folded down. It also has one feature exclusive to Ford: inflatable seat belts in the rear that give extra protection to kids in a crash. The Flex gets 23 miles per gallon. It starts at $30,885, but many features cost extra, and they can add up in a hurry. The inflatable belts are a $195 option, for example, while an entertain-ment system with two 7-inch DVD moni-tors that can be installed for $658. The ultimate family feature a refrigerated center console in the back seat that can chill seven cans is a $795 option in the $42,000 Flex Limited. The sportier Ford Escape crossover, which arrives in dealerships this month, might also be a good road trip contender, but it hasnt yet been tested by safety agencies.Q Associated Press Summer: A time for family road trips

DEAR ABBY: My fiancee, Jenny, and I are being married next year. Jenny is a devout Catholic and is having a difficult time coming to terms with the fact that were living together. We recently moved out of state as a result of job transfers and -for purely economic rea-sons -moved in together. Now that were about to be married, Jenny is beside herself with what to tell her new parish priest because shes afraid he will refuse to marry us if she reveals that were living together. Abby, I love Jenny very much, and Im concerned that this is going to cause problems between us. Shes considering not tell-ing the priest that we live together because she feels he wouldnt understand. Im inclined to agree. Before we moved, we were living separately. Any advice would be helpful. -LIVING IN SIN IN ST. LOUIS DEAR LIVING IN SIN: I dont know what the policies are in St. Louis, but some dioceses will not marry couples who cohabitate unless they first separate. You and your fiancee should go to the priest, explain the entire situation, including the economic reasons for your living together, and tell him you would like to be married. It may not be as bad as Jenny fears. The alterna-tive, starting married life with a lie, is worse than separating temporarily. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My husband of many years has asked me to promise him that I wont inform his family and adult children when he dies. He wants no funeral or obituary -noth-ing to mark his passing. I am concerned because his health isnt good and I must decide soon if I can make that promise. His adult children and their families rarely call, visit or write to him. They never send a greeting card for any occasion. The only time he hears from them is when they want something. He says that since they dont care about him while hes living, they wont care when he dies. Only a few members of his family like me. I dont want to cause more hard feelings. Were my husband to die next week, I would be hard-pressed to obey his final wish. I would want to notify those few family members who would be hurt if I didnt. -BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE DEAR BETWEEN: While I understand your husbands desire that his children, who show no concern for him, not be notified in the event of his death, I do not agree that they should not be told of their fathers passing. Failure to notify them will only fuel the fire of resent-ment they already feel for you. In spite of their inattentiveness, the children should be notified, wheth-er there is to be a funeral or not. If you wish to have a memorial service of some kind to enable you and those you care about to grieve, you should be entitled to have a private one. His children can hold their own service if they need the closure. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Remembering the past will serve you well in the present. Recall how oth-ers have treated you, and you will know instinctively how to proceed. Love and romance are still on the rise, and past lovers will come to mind. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The connections you make at fundraisers or community events will lead to greater opportunities. Dont hide your thoughts. Share your innovative ideas and someone will see the value in what you have to offer. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Deception will sway a decision you must make. Dont offer anything you arent prepared to give away. Purchases will not live up to your expecta-tions. An important rela-tionship will improve if you find common ground and share responsibilities. ++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Look outside the box to find your answers. Interacting with people from different backgrounds will help you get your priorities straight. A past connection will help you re-establish unfulfilled goals. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep a clear head and avoid taking on too much. A financial matter will have underlying motivations that may not be in your best interest. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Problems with partner-ships will prevail. Listen carefully and be ready to counter any move that may make you look incompetent. An emotional situation will leave you feeling less confi-dent about what you know and do. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dont get lazy when there is so much to gain by being active. The people you meet and the informa-tion you are given will help you make vital decisions regarding your future and where you are going to put your efforts. Love is highlighted. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Use intuition and your innovative outlook to make things happen that will help you emotionally, financially and physically. Money is in the picture and will come to you from an unusual source. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Wasting time on senseless bickering will be tiresome. Stick to the truth if you want to avoid prob-lems. A change in your living arrangements will do you good and help clear up any misconceptions someone has about your preferences. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Only trust information you receive firsthand. Responsibilities brought on by friends or relatives must be moni-tored. Take on what you can handle, nothing more. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Money matters will improve and old debts can be resolved. Love is on the rise, and spending more time with someone special should be your intent. With a couple of adjustments, you can make your home comfortable, efficient and affordable. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be sincere regarding the way you feel. Dont let emotional ups and downs lead to a poor choice. Speak from the heart. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Pages (through)6 Moon shots?11 Lead-ins to many YouTube videos 14 Sunset color19 Maker of Reynolds Wrap 20 Film composer Morricone 21 Afire sign22 Saint Clare of $VVLVLVVLVWHU 23 WARNING: Suspension systemprone to failure 26 Company that owns /DQGV(QG 27 Tea flavoring28 Gershwin title character 29 WARNING: May contain Greeks 31 High-precision rifle user 33 Its first car was the Model AA 35 Well-connected industrialists? 36 Generally preferred work shift 37 John38 Raring to go40 They get punched out 7KH%DOODGRI BBBcomedy/western 45 Part of L.A.P.D.46 Litter member 49 Function50 WARNING: Possible heart-related sideeffects 54 1966 Florentine flooder 55 Musandam Peninsula nation %LJER[VWRUH57 Single-masted boat58 Uncorks59 Proves false61 Crime film centerpiece 62 Very tame tom63 Avoided bogey64 Picket line?%RUGHDX[JUDSH6LOHQWO\VD\V6R ZKDW" 67 Furniture purchase68 Rent70 Newswoman Roberts 71 Source of the word EDQGDQQD 72 Saloon singer Sylvia73 Pods often pickled74 Foot, e.g.75 WARNING: Cutting tool required 77 Tour de force(QWHUWDLQPHQW center location 79 UnrefinedBBB8QLWHG(QJOLVK football club) 3HUSOH[82 Company whose ads KDYH3HDQXWVcharacters 86 Not be entirely independent 87 Japanese kana character %LJQDPHLQVXLWV91 ___ Creed (statement ofreligious beliefs) 93 Gliding dance step96 WARNING: Do not open 98 Nettle100 Completely cover7KH$GGDPV )DPLO\DFWRU-RKQ :$51,1*(IIHFWV on childrenunknown (QGLQJZLWKIDUP or home 107 Nothing but108 Olympic group?5XEEHU'XFNLH singer 110 Thomas of stage and screen 111 Mens ___%LRIXHOVRXUFH113 Supplement Down 1 Old naval punishment2 Actor Cary3 Symbol used to mark (QJODQGV1DWLRQDOTrails 4 WARNING: May cause damnation ifswallowed 5 Unfortunate&RQVXOWZLWKWR7 Wraps up8 1956 Ingrid %HUJPDQ
