Promotion DayJASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThird Circuit State Attorney candidate Jeff Siegmeister said he is being bullied by incum-bent Skip Jarvis and claims Jarvis is using his office to harass and intimidate him. In a press release Tuesday, Siegmeister challenged Jarvis to stop bullying, apologize or charge me. Jarvis called Siegmeisters response childish. Im very sorry Mr. Siegmeister seems to be so sensitive to political matters, he said. In letters to Siegmeister dated July 28, 2011 and May 15, 2012, Jarvis questioned his opponents use of the state seal on his website as well as the Web address of the site, stateattorney2012.com. Jarvis wrote that the website name could be a violation of state statutes and of the election code. The letters were written on Third Circuit State Attorney letterhead. Additionally, irrespective of how the election in 2012 turns out, in 2012 you will not be State Attorney and I am therefore direct-ing that you cease the use of my elected position in your political advertise-ment, Jarvis wrote in the July 28 letter. Jarvis reitereted his concerns about the Web address in the May 15 letter, where he said that some-one looking for the state attorneys website using stateattor-ney2012.com would be mis-directed to your website. He also noted the state seal had been removed from the site since sending the first letter. Siegmeister called Jarviss interpre-tation of state law in the matter of the Web address ludi-crous. I am confident, after speaking with several election and criminal attorneys, that my campaign has broken no election or criminal laws, Siegmeister wrote in a June 5 letter. In Tuesdays press release, Siegmeister called Jarviss letters an exten-sion of your abuse of power. I will not stand by and allow your incompetence or your vengence to reign over the people of the Third Circuit.Sparks fly in race for prosecutorThird circuitstate attorneycandidates spar. Siegmeister By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comJACKSONVILLE-A Columbia County man pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal child por-nography charge. Robert Allen Brammer, 24, faces a mandatory sentence of at least five years and up to 20 years in federal prison, a $250,000 fine, and a potential life term of supervised release, accord-ing to a statement from the U.S. Attorneys Office. Brammer pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography over the Internet in a federal dis-trict court in Jacksonville, after 28 images and 15 videos where found on his computer media, according to the release. A detective working with the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force began an undercover operation to identify people using a particu-lar file sharing program on the internet to find and share child pornography. An investigation showed Brammer was the account sub-scriber for an internet protocol address offering child pornog-raphy images for distribution, according to court documents. On Sept. 3, 2010, a federal search warrant was executed at Brammers Columbia County res-idence, which has a High Springs address. During the search, the officers seized a laptop computer and a desktop tower computer. Brammer was interviewed and said he began searching for and downloading child pornography about three and a half years prior, and that he used file sharing pro-grams to search for and down-load child pornography from the internet, according to the release. Brammer also said that child por-nography is obviously illegal, according to officials. The case was investigated by the FBI, Alachua County Sheriffs Office, and Columbia County Sheriffs Office. It is being pros-ecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney D. Rodney Brown. The plea agreement also requires Brammer to forfeit sev-eral computers and other digital media. His sentencing hearing is set for Aug. 27. Local man pleads guilty to child pornography charges SPARKS Continued on 3A By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comA public meeting will allow concerned sports-men to have their say about potential fee-based hunt-ing on land that is publicly owned and managed by the Suwannee River Water Management District, offi-cials announced Tuesday. The district will hold a public meeting July 5 from 6 to 8 p.m. at its headquar-ters, 9225 CR 49 in Live Oak. Facing budget cuts, the district is exploring options to expand hunting through generating user fees, offer-ing hunting leases and other methods. The meet-ing will give stakeholder groups a chance to provide input and offer suggestions for that process, according to a press release. A proposed private hunting lease for the districts 836-acre Mud Swamp Tract came before the govern-ing board in June, but the board decided to delay action to get public input to accommodate concerns of stakeholder groups. During the meeting, several representatives from hunting groups spoke against the lease and limit-ing accessibility to lands. I think youll see the hunting community well represented at the July meeting, said John Fuller, executive director of The Future of Hunting in Florida. The Tallahassee-based group is comprised of several sporting and conservation groups con-cerned with accessibility to hunting lands. Fuller said there is no justification to charge the public to use land they have already paid for with taxes. It is different when hunters need a permit to use private land, he said. The district used Florida Forever funding to pur-chase the Mud Swamp land for almost $1.25 million in 2004. They dont own it. Theyre just stewards of it and therefore, it ought to be open to the public, said Bill Marvin, chairman of The Future of Hunting in Florida. Marvin said the districts land management plan does not allow for exclu-sive uses of land and state law doesnt allow district land to be leased to private parties. Its just not right, he said. Leasing district lands to private hunters has never been done before and hunters are concerned its a slippery slope that would limit access to other lands, Marvin said. Marvin said he is thank-Meeting to address fee-based hunting on public-owned landHUNTING Continued on 3A Rubio addresses mistakes, criticisms in his memoirBy BRENDAN FARRINGTONAP Political WriterTALLAHASSEE U.S. Sen. Marco Rubios memoir isnt just a feel-good story about a boy whose immigrant parents worked hard so that he could have what they couldnt, or about overcoming long odds to beat a popular governor once heavily backed by the GOP establishment to win his Senate seat. The 303-page book released Tuesday, An American Son, is also an answer to the criticism and scrutiny he faced from political opponents and the media during his improbable election to the Senate and after taking office in 2011. The 41-year-old conservative is often discussed as a potential running mate for Republican Mitt Romney, and the book reads almost as if Rubio is vetting himself.

Disney previously imported merchandise for its central Florida attrac tions through Savannah, Ga. Officials say a quarter of the cargo will con tinue to flow through the Georgia port but the remaining 75 percent will come through Jacksonville. Its part of efforts by Scott and Florida business leaders to boost the states economy by increasing activity at its ports. Rescue man to be honored ST. PETERSBURG A man who made two rescues in two days is being hon ored by the St. Petersburg Fire Department for his lifesaving actions. Gus Hertz was fishing near the Gulf last week when a man suffered a dia betic episode and drove his vehicle into the water. Hertz and another fisherman pulled the man from the car. A day later, Hertz was called to action again. A small plane with two people on board crashed into the water near his boat. Hertz dragged the pilot and pas senger onto his boat and headed to shore. Lt. Joel Granata of St. Petersburg Fire Rescue says the citys mayor and fire chief will honor Hertz during a ceremony Thursday. Hertz is from Virginia and is spending the summer in the Tampa Bay area. 3-year-old found with 2 bodies FORT MYERS Police are investigating after a 3year-old girl was found in a car with the bodies of two gunshot victims in south west Florida. The child was not harmed. Fort Myers Police found 23-year-old Jerrett Byrd and 16-year-old Chariah Owens inside the car around 4 a.m. Tuesday. They had multiple gunshot wounds and were pronounced dead at the scene. The girl was asleep in the backseat when police found her. She is Owens cousin. Its unclear what prompt ed the shooting or why the child was with the victims. Police said they have con tacted her parents. The child was taken to the hospital and later released to the custody of state child welfare officials. Authorities are combing the crime scene for clues and have moved the car to a secure location. Gulf Power rates dropping $9.92 TALLAHASSEE Gulf Power Co. rates are going down for its Florida Panhandle customers. The Florida Public Service Commission on Tuesday approved the Pensacola-based companys request for a $58.5 million reduction in fuel charges. That will knock $9.92 off the monthly bill for a cus tomer using 1,000 kilowatt hours, which is near aver age, effective July 2. The total bill would drop from $126.53 to $116.61. The reduction is due to greater reliance on natural gas rather than coal to gen erate power for the 431,000 homes, businesses and other customers served by the utility. Gas prices have declined as supplies have increased. The commission usually adjusts fuel charges once a year in November, but Gulf asked for a mid-course cor rection due to recent cost savings. Trial for mom accused of killing PENSACOLA Opening arguments are slated to begin in the trial of a Pensacola area woman accused of brutally killing a teenager in 2010. Investigators said the victim, 19-year-old Audreanna Zimmerman, was beaten with a crowbar, shocked with a stun gun and set on fire. She died nearly two weeks later at the hospital. Investigators allege 41-year-old Tina Brown, her daughter and another woman killed Zimmerman during an argument over a man. The Pensacola News Journal reported Brown is charged with first-degree murder. She could face the death penalty or life in prison if convicted. One of the women pleaded guilty to a second-degree murder charge last year and will testify in Browns trial as part of her plea agreement. Disney importing souvenirs through Jacksonville LOS ANGELES Johnny Depp and his longtime partner, Vanessa Paradis, have split. A publicist for Depp said in a statement Tuesday that the two have amica bly separated. The state ment requested privacy for the former couple and their two children, 9-yearold son, Jack, and 13-yearold daughter, Lily-Rose. Depp and Paradis met in 1998 but never married during their 14-year rela tionship. The American actor and the French model-singer lived togeth er with their children in France. Depps most recent film credits include The Rum Diary and Dark Shadows. He is set to star as Tonto in the bigscreen take on The Lone Ranger, due next year. Healthcare foes won in media NEW YORK A new study shows that oppo nents of President Barack Obamas health care plan clearly beat supporters in getting their message across through the media. The study released Tuesday by the Pew Research Centers Project for Excellence in Journalism found that opponents won because their positions were sharp er and easier to under stand. The critics also more frequently drove cov erage, particularly when Tea Party demonstrations came to the fore. Pew director Tom Rosenstiel said the compe tition wasnt even close. Royalty back in Olympics LONDON Zara Phillips, the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, will stay in the Athletes Village in London this summer when she competes in Olympic equestrian events. The 31-year-old Phillips told reporters at a news conference Tuesday that she was very excited to be part of Britains eventing team, a difficult discipline that combines the skills of dressage, cross-country and show jumping. The former world cham pion and her horse, High Kingdom, were named to the team last week. She had been considered a long shot until recently, when a series of strong performances in Britains sodden country side gave her momentum. The moment is sweet for Phillips in part because she had to withdraw from com peting in the 2008 Beijing Games when her horse, Toytown, became injured. Photog says Baldwin hit him NEW YORK A New York City newspaper pho tographer has accused groom-to-be Alec Baldwin of assaulting him outside a marriage license bureau. But the 30 Rock star says he was only protecting himself. The NYPD confirmed that Daily News photogra pher Marcus Santos had filed a complaint against Baldwin. The department says Santos claims he was punched while snapping photos of Baldwin and his fiancee, Hilaria Thomas. A statement on Tuesday from Baldwins publicist accused the photographer of being the aggressor. It says the actor defended himself after the photogra pher assaulted him with a camera, and that no punch es were thrown. Production begins on Disney film BURBANK, Calif. Production has started on Maleficent, with Angelina Jolie starring as the classic Disney villain from Sleeping Beauty. Work on the film began June 13, The Walt Disney Studios announced Tuesday. The studio also released the first image of Jolie in character, wearing a dark headdress and dra matic makeup. Maleficent tells the beloved Sleeping Beauty fairy tale from the perspec tive of Auroras evil nem esis, revealing the back story that led her to curse the girl as a baby.

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS WEDNESDAY JUNE 20, 2012 3A 3A ful for the opportunity have a discussion with district officials and other hunters. The district is looking for ways to increase hunting opportunities while reduc ing the net cost of manag ing public lands, said Bob Heeke, district senior land resources manager He said because hunt ing is not currently allowed at Mud Swamp, the proj ect would expand hunting and fishing opportunities. The tract receives minimal recreational use from the public. The district will continue to offer hunting opportuni ties on nearly 105,000 acres of lands. co-owned, is addressed. One of the things I strive to be in the book is honest, because I want people to learn from that. Ive learned more from my mistakes than I have from my successes. And hope fully if people can hear it in my voice, they may be able to avoid that happening to them at some point, Rubio said in an interview with The Associated Press. Reflecting on his 2010 Senate campaign, Rubio said he shouldnt have tried to operate a political committees finances on his own, nor hired relatives to help with political work. But he often blames the media for jumping to con clusions. And he accuses then-Gov. Charlie Crist, who dropped out of the Republican Senate primary contest after Rubio opened up a wide lead and who then mounted an unsuc cessful independent bid for the seat, with making up or exaggerating facts. Years later my lack of bookkeeping skills would come back to haunt me. The press and Governor Crist raised the matter during my U.S. Senate campaign, implying I had pocketed money from my finance committee and used it to pay for personal items. It wasnt true, but I had helped create the mis understandings my oppo nents exploited, wrote Rubio, who won a threeway general election for the Senate. That and other experi ences have caused him to become more careful as a senator, he told The AP. The lesson Ive learned is that every decision that we make is going to be viewed by some in the most negative way possi ble, Rubio said. You cant always avoid it, but you want to avoid it primarily because every minute you spend explaining a deci sion is a minute you cant spend talking about public policy. Rubio wants his book to be a story about succeed ing in America. His par ents struggled economi cally when they left Cuba in 1956. Life was difficult in the United States and they contemplated returning to Cuba after Fidel Castro took power in 1959. His father was a bartender who had dreams of becoming a businessman and his moth er was a maid who wanted to be an actress. They were never able to achieve their dreams. The purpose of their whole life was to make sure that I had a chance to do the all the things that they didnt. And a lot of it, of course, is due to their hard work and sacrifice, but a lot of it is due to the fact that it happened in America, Rubio said. He also writes about his familys decision to attend a Mormon church when they lived in Las Vegas dur ing his childhood. They returned to Catholicism three years later, but the Mormon faith left a last ing impression on Rubio. He said he looks at his Mormon relatives and sees close families and strong adults. A lot of that is reinforced by the church and the environment the church provides its members and that still strikes me to this day, Rubio said. The last ing message is in order to have a strong nation you have to have strong people, and in order to have strong people, you have to have those sorts of foundations in your life. Romney is seeking to become the nations first Mormon president. Rubio also recalls in the book the night President Barack Obama was elect ed and how tears welled in his eyes. Rubio a harsh critic of the presi dent described how he was proud of the nation for electing a black presi dent. He wrote that he was particularly touched by a story in Obamas victory speech about a 106-year-old black woman who waited in line to vote a right she didnt have early in her life because of the color of her skin and because she was a woman. Asked about that night, Rubio said, It was an important historic moment in American history. It was also one that made him think Obama would be a different kind of leader, a hope he said has now turned to disappointment. Despite my strong dis agreements with him on public policy, I thought he had a unique opportu nity to elevate American political discourse above the kind of place where its been lately. And hes completely abandoned that in favor of class warfare, gender warfare and divid ing even Hispanics against other groups of Hispanics, Rubio said. Its a blown opportunity. Its a very sad turn of events here, that someone who was elected Siegmeister said he felt it was important to go public with the matter. Even though I sought the opinion of numerous lawyers, the election people and everybody else to make sure I wasnt missing some thing and was somehow in violation of the law, the one thing that is lost in all those letters is: Why is Mr. Jarvis using his office against his political opponent? he said. If he believes I was violat ing the law, he should con tact the governor to assign an executive prosecutor to come in and review wheth er I violated a criminal law. Thats why Im running for office against Mr. Jarvis. Jarvis said Tuesday he was not trying to intimidate Siegmeister. If I were trying to harass or bully him with the let ters I sent, I would have not worded the letters so nicely, he said. Im sorry Mr. Siegmeister has already reached this level of des peration. He said Siegmeisters use of the state seal was called to his attention by the Florida Secretary of States office. Jarvis doesnt plan to apologize for the letters. Am I going to apologize. Hell, no. There is no apol ogy due him, Jarvis said. Im trying to avoid what I consider to be an election code violation. Ive simply brought the issues to his attention and if he is so sen sitive that this upsets him to this degree, that is some thing hes going to have to deal with himself.

RUBIO: Talks memoir Continued From Page 1A HUNTING: Public lands Continued From Page 1A By TRAVIS LOLLER Associated Press NEW ORLEANS The Southern Baptist Convention voted Tuesday to elect its first African-American president in one of its biggest steps yet to reconcile the 167-yearold denominations troubled racial past and appeal to a more diverse group of believers. The Rev. Fred Luter Jr. was unopposed in being elected by thousands of enthusi astic delegates on Tuesday at the annual meeting of the nations largest Protestant denomination in his hometown of New Orleans. Pastor David Crosby of First Baptist New Orleans nominated Luter, calling him a fire-breathing, miracle-working pastor who would likely be a candidate for saint hood if he were Catholic. Crosby recalled how Luter built the Franklin Avenue Baptist Church from a tiny congregation to a megachurch of nearly 8,000 before the buildings were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Members of Luters mostly black church came to worship at Crosbys mostly white church, and the pastors worked together for 2? years as Luter rebuilt Franklin Avenue. Today, with a Sunday attendance of 5,000, Luters church is once again the largest Southern Baptist church for atten dance in the state. Fred Luter is the only megachurch pas tor I know who had to do it twice, Crosby said. Crosby said the SBC needs Luter at the head of the table as it increasingly focuses on diversifying its membership. Many leaders are convinced this nomina tion is happening now by the provenance of God, he said. Delegates clapped and cheered when Luters election was announced by current SBC President Bryant Wright, who told those gathered for the convention that they were privileged to be here for this historic occasion. Luter wiped tears from his eyes as he accepted the position. Two female ushers from the Franklin Avenue congregation embraced, swaying and weeping with joy. I think Im just too overwhelmed by it right now to speak, said another member, Malva Marsalis. A minister from Luters church, Darren Martin, said the SBCs past support of slav ery and segregation are well known, but Luters election was a true sign ... that change from within has really come. ...Christ is at the center of the SBC. The historic election comes as member ship and baptisms are on the decline and the Nashville-based denomination is trying to expand its appeal beyond its traditional white Southern base. In a news conference after the vote, Luter said he doesnt think his election is some kind of token gesture. If we stop appointing African-Americans, Asians, Hispanics to leadership positions after this, weve failed, he said. ... I promise you Im going to do all that I can to make sure this is not just a one-and-done deal. Southern Baptists elect first black president Dad wont face charges in alleged attackers death JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Lake City resident Rylee Heaps, 7, jumps in the water Monday at the Columbia Aquatic Complex. Cool Pool in the By PAUL J. WEBER and RAMIT PLUSHNICK-MASTI Associated Press SHINER, Texas Hearing his 5-year-old daughter crying from behind a barn, a father ran and discovered the unthinkable: A man molesting her. The father pulled the man off his daughter, authorities say, and started pum meling him to death with his fists. With his daughter finally safe, the father frantically called 911, begging a dispatcher to find his rural ranch and send an ambu lance. Come on! This guy is going to die on me! the man is heard screaming on the recording, which authorities played during a news conference Tuesday where they announced that the father would not face charges. I dont know what to do! In declining to indict the 23year-old father in the June 9 kill ing of Jesus Mora Flores, a Lavaca County grand jury reached the same conclusion as investigators and many of the fathers neigh bors: He was authorized to use deadly force to protect his daugh ter. Its sad a man had to die, said Michael James Veit, 48, who lives across the street from where the attack happened in this small community run on ranching and the Shiner beer brewery. But I think anybody would have done that. The family ranch is so remote that on the 911 tape, the father is heard profanely screaming at a dispatcher who couldnt locate the property. At one point, he tells the dispatcher hes going to put the man in his truck and drive him to a hospital. Hes going to die! the father screams, swearing at the dis patcher. Hes going to f-----die! The tense, nearly five-minute call begins with the father saying he beat up a man found raping his daughter. The father grows increasingly frazzled, shouting into the phone so loudly at times that the call often becomes inau dible. The Associated Press is not identifying the father in order to protect the daughters identity. The AP generally does not iden tify victims of sexual assault. Hes a peaceable soul, VAnne Huser, the fathers attorney, told reporters at the Lavaca County Courthouse. He had no inten tion to kill anybody that day. The attack happened on the familys ranch off a quiet, two-lane county road between the farming towns of Shiner and Yoakum. TEXAS continued on 6A
ONE OPINION Barack Obama the autocrat LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Columbia County Public Library West Branch personal computers open for public use are slow. On June 16, I was in the West Branch Library trying to type an e-mail letter to a friend. I made a mistake and needed to hit the backspace key. To my utter dis-appointment I listened while the PC went through several gyra-tions. The hour glass icon hung on the screen like Spanish moss on a Florida oak tree. While waiting, I looked up at the clock and noticed it was tick-ing toward high noon. Finally after a long wait the screen came back up. You would have thought I hit the backstroke key instead of the backspace key. The time it took to complete the task gave me time to imagine a palmetto bug trying to do the backstroke all the way across a local public swimming pool. It took about as long for the PC to do the backspace as it would a palmetto bug to do the back-stroke across the length of a local public swimming pool. Columbia County Library patrons were asked to fill out a survey not too long ago and we gave feedback. I know I was not the only taxpaying patron who complained about the West Branch PC being so slow. Columbia County needs to get the lead out and speed up all the personal computers at the West Branch. It was high noon, on June 16, and not one of the PCs at the West Branch had a patron even though at the time, the Main Branch was yet to open for another hour and all PCs were working. I remember Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly in the 1952 quadruple Oscar winning movie western High Noon. Imagine Best Actor winner Gary Cooper not being able to defend Grace Kelly and the town from the bad guy getting off the train at high noon. Why? Because he was too slow getting his gun out of the holster! Columbia County commissioners up for reelection need to get the lead out of all the PCs at the West Branch Library and speed them up before high noon on primary election day of August 14. I trust you will have this problem fixed before the votes are tallied.Kenny MerrikenLake City Library computers too slow Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding counties by Community Newspapers Inc.

Its always a danger, and maybe theres a penalty such as pub-lic disapproval. Richard Nixon got caught in criminal conduct and was forced to resign. Whats the penalty going to be this time? President Barack Obama has been up to some powerful autocratic mischief, but it seems more likely to boost than hurt his re-election chances. The latest adventure was his decision to stop the deporta-tion of illegal aliens under age 30 who came to the United States before age 15 and have stayed out of legal trouble. There have been whoops and cheers, and theres little ques-tion it will increase his support among Latinos whose votes are crucial this election year. The problem is that the policy runs counter to law and Obamas constitutional pledge to uphold it. Obama himself once said he couldnt leapfrog Congress on this issue, but he did just that. The possibilities of legal reversal seem slim. Both The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times have published stories about Obama starting his ten-ure in a checks-and-balances frame of mind and then con-verting to a flex-your-muscles point of view. Though he at first wanted to work with Congress, he grew anxious when the Republicans took over the House two years into his administration. Afraid of getting nothing done, he decided to make the most of executive powers and adopted a slogan: We cant wait. Thus, the administration did not wait for Congress to enact a cap-and-trade law and instead had the Environmental Protection Agency step in with toughened regulations on greenhouse gases. And thus Obamas team did not wait for Congress to rejigger the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, which seemed possible. Instead, the administration started a process of letting states get out from under the education laws demands. Still other moves indicated Congress just does not mat-ter to this White House. The president engaged the American military in Libya without seeking congressional authorization and made recess appointments without Senate approval. The Constitution allows recess appointments, the problem in this case being that there was no recess under law. None of these or numerous other power splurges are as bad as President George W. Bushs abuses, some Obama defenders say. Maybe the defenders did not notice that, like Bush, Obama has issued so-called signing statements when signing bills into laws, in effect negating parts of them. On the terrorism front, Obama ended Bushs tough interrogations -characterized as torture by many critics -but continued rendition, the practice of sending terrorism suspects to foreign prisons where the United States has no control. The president also has continued indefinite detention and warrantless surveillance, and meanwhile has endorsed the right to kill Americans abroad without due process if they are considered enemy combatants. While some conservatives might applaud some emula-tions of Bush, they are gener-ally the ones voicing the most outrage over Obamas power abuses. There are, however, concerned liberals. One of the most outspoken is Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University. He has worried that adulation of Obama has led liberals to be soft on his civil liberties violations. Conservative legal theorist Michael McConnell of Stanford University summed up the hazard of Obamas imperial impudence. Quoted in a Wall Street Journal article March 30, he said that while checks and balances can lead to gridlock, thats better than unchecked power in the hands of one person. Others note that if Obama can get away with these power grabs, so might Republican presiden-tial candidate Mitt Romney if elected -and on issues that will make the left as furious as the right is now. Whats at stake are limited government, rule of law and republican governance, and they are presently losing while Obama wins. T he private jets are on the tarmac fueling up in time for the Wednesday kickoff of the Rio+20 Earth Summit. Pampered United Nations busybodies are gather-ing at this event whose slogan is The future we want. A more accurate motto for the confab would be, The money we want. As many as 50,000 attendees are expected in the Brazilian resort city of Rio de Janeiro, including 130 heads of state. U.N. globalists hope to recapture the spirit of the first earth conference 20 years ago by returning to its original site. The movement that began as a philosophical argu-ment for a greener planet has whiffed three times in recent years in trying to convince coun-tries to back their hot air with cool cash. Rio+20 is the moment of truth that will determine whether participating nations will approve the creation of a global green tax. Backers propose the kitty start at $30 billion a year, but they want to ratchet up the figure to $100 billion by 2020. A collection of radical nongovernmental orga-nizations dissatisfied with that amount want developed nations to sacrifice 0.7 percent of their gross national product. Not expected in Rio is President Obama, who is clearly reluctant to be seen with fellow spendthrifts at a time when his re-election is jeopardized by his own three-plus-year-long spend-ing binge. However, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is expected to wave the green flag for Washington in Rio, along with Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson. Earlier this year, Mrs. Clinton threatened to retaliate against the European Union for imposing a carbon-dioxide-emis-sions tax on airlines entering EU airspace. She should likewise defend U.S. sovereignty by opposing this U.N. scheme to levy a green tax on Americans. Sustainability is a generic, inoffensive term being used to mask the redistribution of wealth. If U.N. big spenders move forward, it should be with-out any U.S. taxpayer funds. Just say no to Rio. D emocracy is a messy business. It usually takes a long time to push through reforms. As German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck famously said, Laws are like sausages; it is better not to see them being made. But the alternative to lawmaking is rule by decree. Thats why President Barack Obama was wrong to use an executive order to grant an effective two-year amnesty to 800,000 to 2.1 million illegal immigrants who were brought into the United States as children. For several years, Congress has been working on legislation to do something similar with whats called the DREAM Act. We have sup-ported these efforts. The Constitution clearly gives only to Congress the power to establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization. The executive branch of gov-ernment, overseen by the president, only enforces what Congress decides. Technically, what Mr. Obama did halting deporta-tions of and granting work per-mits to qualified illegal immi-grants was legal because the president can grant asylum to foreigners who can claim eco-nomic or other hardship, Ilya Shapiro told us; hes a senior fellow in constitutional studies at the libertarian Cato Institute. But the problem here is atmo-spherics, he said. Congress specifically has rejected the DREAM Act. The president then went ahead and showed contempt for the separation of powers. Hes also throwing a wrench into potential long-term solutions, such as that being worked on by Marco Rubio, the Florida Republican senator sometimes discussed as a potential run-ning mate to Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presi-dential nominee. Americas founders gave those in Congress the exclu-sive power to make laws because they are in closer touch with the people. Its still fairly easy to meet your local member of Congress or sena-tor at a town hall, but meeting the president is almost impos-sible absent a campaign donation. Much of the problem stems from Mr. Obamas own faulty economic program. By contrast, when President Ronald Reagan signed the most-recent amnesty law, in 1986, the economy had been humming for years. The Gippers policies of tax cuts, stable money and spending restraints were about the oppo-site of Mr. Obamas. Another factor is the fastapproaching November elec-tion. Mr. Obama obviously is appealing to Latinos, many of whose relatives will enjoy the amnesty, and who vote in such battleground states as Nevada, Florida, Arizona and Colorado. Thats another reason why Congress should be involved because any action then would have to be bipartisan. Certainly, any amnesty bill likely would have to wait until after the election. But thats how democracy works. Its unfortunate that Mr. Romney has taken such a weak position on the presidents order. Ironically, Mr. Romney won some Republican primaries part-ly by criticizing Newt Gingrich and other opponents for being weak on amnesty. Mr. Romneys new position is another example of what one aide called an Etch A Sketch approach to policies. Instead of posing as a leader, he needs to start being one.

Running toward his daughters screams, the father pulled Flores off his child and inflicted several blows to the mans head and neck area, investigators said. Emergency crews respond ing to the fathers 911 call found Flores pants and underwear pulled down on his lifeless body. The girl was examined at a hospital, and authorities say forensic evi dence and witness accounts corroborated the fathers story that his daughter was being sexually molested. At Werners Restaurant, customer Gail Allen said she didnt want to speak for the town, though her comments echoed what others said. The father has gone through enough, said Allen, 59, who has nine grandchil dren. The little girl is going to be traumatized for life, and the father, too, for what hap pened. He was protecting his family. Any parent would do that.

All-star teams for ages 15-under, 12-under, 10-under and 9-under will be in action.

Winners of the double-elimination district tournaments will advance to state. Otherwise, Lake City Columbia County Youth Baseball president Tad Cervantes said the tourna-ment basically will be the same. There is no admis-sion and the concession stand will be in operation. No pitching machines will be involved in these games and the 15-under all-stars will play on Field 5 the big field. The 9-under tournament is best-of-3 between Lake City and Wakulla.

RUSSOAssociated PressThe guys in charge of changing the BCS are headed back to Chicago, hoping to make more progress at a meeting Wednesday than they did the last time they were there. Last weeks gathering of conference commission-ers did little to advance the goal of reformatting the way college football crowns a champion. It did produce reports of a standoff, with the Southeastern Conference and the Big 12 on one side and the Big Ten and Pac-12 on the other. Fans started to worry the four-team playoff which once seemed inevitable after April meetings in Florida had fallen into jeopardy. Talk of a plus-one format, which would not cre-ate national semifinals but instead pick the champi-onship game participants after the major bowls are played, had seemingly crept back into the conver-sation. But football fans can relax. There is no reason to panic. Chances are still very good SEC Commissioner Mike Slive, Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany, Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott and their fel-low conference leaders get this thing worked out. There will be something for everybody, BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock said after the last get-together in Chicago, but there wont be every-thing for anybody. And deadlines might not be so firm. In a perfect world, Wednesdays meeting would produce a fairly detailed plan to be present-ed to the BCS Presidential Oversight Committee when it meets on June 26 in Washington. In that perfect world, the presidents would sign off on a plan that day and everyone could head for summer vacation knowing that at least the where and the when of the new for-mat. That would set the table for television negotia-tions in the fall. Nothing about the Bowl Championship Series has ever been perfect, of course, so dont be sur-prised if the commissioners leave Chicago with things unsettled. And remember, the commissioners have said that deciding how the teams are picked is not even a priority right now. After bolting a bit early from last weeks Conference commissioners to meet today.

He finally broke the elusive 80 mark with a score of 41-38-79 for an alltime personal best. None of the three team matches were nail-biters. In match one the team of Ed Snow, Paul Davis, Jim Bell and Howard Whitaker brushed aside the team of Jerry West, Emerson Darst, Hugh Sherrill and Stan Woolbert, 8-3. In the second match the team of Monty Montgomery, Tony Branch, Merle Hibbard and Bill Rogers topped the team of Don Christensen, Dennis Hendershot, Jim Stevens and Cannon by three points, 7-4. The final match was another three-point win, this time 5-2 for the team of Eli Witt, Tom Elmore, Mike Spencer, Doyle Worthington and Dan Stephens over the team of Marc Risk, Jerry Snowberger, Nick Whitehurst and Bobby Simmons. Medalist honors went to Montgomery with 37-39-76, a stroke better than Risks 38-39-77. Snow shot 78 and Christensen matched Cannons 79. Branch (37) had the best front nine score, two better than Woolberts 39. Elmore, Spencer and Stephens all had 39 on the back. The U.S. Open Blitz had players combining their scores with pro partners playing in the third round of the Open. Winners and their pro partners: Q A flight first place, Steve Patterson (Ernie Els) +9; second place, Steve Thomas (Graeme McDowell) +5; third place, Scott Kishton (Jason Dufner) +2. Q B flight first place, Ron Bennett (Graeme McDowell) +5; second place, (tie) Dave Mehl (K.J. Choi) and Mike Carr (Sergio Garcia) +2. Patterson added two skins to his days take. Bruce Gibson, Steve Osborne and Mehl each had a skin. Cory DePratter holed three consecutive bird-ies for a total of +9 points and a three-stroke victory in Sundays blitz. Steve Thomas knocked in two birdies for a +6 and sec-ond place, followed by Tom Wade in third and Don Combs in fourth. Both of Thomas birdies held up for skins. Tony Kent, Scott Kishton, Mike Gough, Joe Paul, DePratter and Combs split the remain-ing skins. Closest to the pin winners were Thomas on No. 5, DePratter on No. 7, Combs on No. 15 and Terry Hunter on No. 17. In the Wednesday blitz, Joe Pauls consecutive birdies on Nos. 7-8 boost-ed his score to a +6 that barely held up for the win over Jordan Hale, Donald Roberts and Mickey Wilcox, all at +5. Roger Mitzel and Steve Patterson shared fifth-place money. Jonathan Allen, Hale and Patterson collected for skins. Both pot holes car-ried over. The LGA contest let the ladies count only nine holes chosen by blind draw. Shirley Edelstein took an easy win with 35.5 net strokes. Sally Rivers had 38.5 for second. Dottie Rogers and Jan Davis tied for third with net 39. Rogers scored the only chip-in. Upcoming events:Q Sunday, Monthly Mixed event, at 1 p.m.; Q June 30, MGA best ball tournament.

The luck of the draw seems to be falling on holes which are birdied by more than one team. Most participants agree that the main reason they play scrambles is the fun of being able to compete as a team. If you happen to hit a bad shot, you have a teammate who can pick up the slack. A team has a shot at the pot by being the only team to birdie a particu-lar hole. As the pot grows bigger the level of excite-ment does too. Wednesdays scramble was won by the team of Pete Skantzos, Phillip Russell and Dave at 3-under. There were four chances at the pot with no winner. Sundays scramble ended in a three-way tie at 3-under. The team of Chet Carter, Ralph Minster and Brian Shead won on the first playoff hole. The pot had one chance. The team of Todd Carter, Tiara Carter and Callie Harrington birdied Creeks No. 7, when Harrington sunk a 20-foot putt. However, the lucky hole was Creeks No. 2 and it was birdied by two teams, so the pot rolls over again. The Friday Dogfight ended in a tie between Garrett Odom and Gerald Smithy at +5, followed by Tim Tortorice at +4 in third. Closest to pin winners were Kevin Odom, Chet Carter, Brian Shead, Odom and Ronnie Ash. Wednesday Blitz results: Ronnie Ash +9, first; Shelton Keen, Chris Sanders and Jack Tuggle +2, three-way tie for second. Skin win-ners were Jim Munns, Chet Carter and Keen. Session 2 of Junior Golf Camp is June 25-29. Sign up at the pro shop or call Chet Carter at 365-7097.

Armwood loses state football titleAssociated PressSEFNER Armwood High School has been stripped of its 2011 Class 6A state football championship The Florida High School Athletic Association released its final judgment Tuesday following a six-month investigation into ineligible players. The investigation determined the parents of five football players falsified residency information to get their children into the Seffner school. Armwood must forfeit all 15 wins from 2011 and 11 of its 14 from 2010, when one of the ineligible students also played. The Tampa Bay area school must also pay a $12,743 fine and return all postsea-son trophies won. Hillsborough County Public Schools spokesman Steve Hegarty says they expect the par-ents to cover part of the fine. Armwood will be on administrative probation for three years, meaning any future problems could result in even harsher penalties. Riley selected as Chuck Daly Award recipientAssociated PressMIAMI Miami Heat president Pat Riley is this years recipient of the Chuck Daly Lifetime Achievement Award, pre-sented by the National Basketball Coaches Association. Riley will be announced as the recipient in a news con-ference before Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night. He is the fifth per-son to receive the award, joining Tommy Heinsohn in 2009, Jack Ramsay and Tex Winter in 2010 and Lenny Wilkens in 2011. The award commemorates Dalys life in bas-ketball, and his standard of integrity, competitive excellence and tireless pro-motion of the game. Riley says hes humbled and honored by the award.After party, Junior focused on SonomaBy JENNA FRYERAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Turns out the victory party for Dale Earnhardt Jr. wasnt much of a party at all. Earnhardt snapped a 143-race winless streak at Michigan International Speedway, then celebrated at home in North Carolina with friends and family. It was good, we went home and some of the fam-ily and my friends were there, and we just stood around and talked about the win, Earnhardt told The Associated Press on Tuesday. We played some music, it was a pretty good time. It was hardly the wild party people expected from NASCARs most popular driver, who was unaware of reports the nightclub he owns in downtown Charlotte gave away free drinks for an hour after Sunday nights win. Thats cool, he said, laughing. Next up for Earnhardt was his first celebration at Hendrick Motorsports since the organization began marking wins with the ringing of a victory bell throughout the shop. Earnhardt has been with Hendrick since 2008, when he won his only other race with the team at Michigan four years to the day of Sundays victory. He said hes never been present when any of his teammates rang the bell. Once thats over, it will be full focus on Sundays race at Sonoma Raceway, where Earnhardt has always strug-gled. In 12 career starts, his average finish is 22.2 and hes led just nine laps on the winding road course. His career best finish is 11th, done three times. Hes set modest goals for this weekend with crew chief Steve Letarte, and is anxious to get on with his summer with return trips to Daytona, Pocono and Michigan looming ahead. Ive kind of got to reel it in a little bit because of Sonoma, I aint never had a top 10 there, he said. I told Steve, Lets try to go get a top-10, if thats first place or ninth place or whatever, lets just concen-trate on going there to get a personal best. And then I think we can move on from that, whatever that result may be. But, theres a part of Earnhardt who isnt ready to write off a good day at Sonoma just yet. Statistically, the start of his season is one of his best ever in the Sprint Cup Series. Hes the only driver to complete every lap, and leads the series with 12 top-10s through 15 races. There are stats Im not used to bragging about, he said. I have to pinch myself just about after race. His consistency, coupled with the dominating win at Michigan, now has him mentioned as a serious threat to win the Sprint Cup championship. Earnhardt has never won a Cup title, and hasnt challenged for one since his six-win season in 2004, which he considers the strongest year of his career. He laughed Tuesday at the sudden buzz over his title chances, which have been validated since Sunday by everyone from current points leader Matt Kenseth to NASCAR president Mike Helton. Earnhardt believes hell have his hands full with defending champion Tony Stewart, teammate Jimmie Johnson, and Roush Fenway Racing drivers Kenseth and Greg Biffle. I think everybody was just kind of drunk with excitement after the race, he said. Some of my bud-dies that I race against, Matt and Mr. Helton, every-body was just excited about the end of the race. But I do think we can put our name in the hat. I dont think we are the top team, youve got to look at proba-bly Tony, Jimmie, and Biffle and Matt. But we are going to be in the Chase, and were going to go after it. ASSOCIATED PRESSDale Earnhardt Jr. stands on his car in victory lane afte r winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Quicken Loans 400 auto race at Michigan Internati onal Speedway on Sunday in Brooklyn, Mich. meeting, Scott told reporters the commissioners would present the presidents with options plural. That comment set off a small firestorm and concerns that Nebraska Chancellor Harvey Perlman, Florida President Bernie Machen and the 10 other university leaders on the oversight committee would be left to hammer out details. Thats not happening.More likely is the commissioners will hand over a recommended plan, plus the other option or two that was given serious consideration. The presidents are the bosses, and the commissioners want to show prop-er deference. Ultimately, our presidents decide, Scott also said. All signs point toward the major bowls being involved in some way as the setting for national semifinals and the championship game to be bid out like the Super Bowl. One option is to use a rotation, which would set the semifinal sites in advance. Another would essentially tie conferences to their traditional bowls, so the top-seeded teams would host games at the bowl sites where their leagues usually send teams.
DEAR ABBY: I married Linda 22 years ago. Three years later, the mar-riage was over. After our divorce, I came out as gay. I met a wonderful man in 1996, and we were married in Iowa in 2009. Over the years, I have wondered how Linda was getting along. Id like to get back in touch with her. At one time we lived only a few miles from her. I drove by her home, but lost my nerve when I saw her father standing outside. Family members discour-aged me from attempting to contact her after our split. I heard a few weeks ago that Linda has remar-ried, although Im not sure how long ago. Obviously, I have no desire to rekindle a romance. Im happily mar-ried and assume she is, too. I would like to talk with her, but I dont know if it would be a mistake. What do you think? -LINDAS EX IN COUNCIL BLUFFS DEAR EX: Before reaching out you need to ask yourself what you would gain by making contact, and equally important, what Linda would gain. If she blamed herself for the failure of the marriage, contact with you might be reassuring. If you realized your true sexual orienta-tion only after the divorce, then telling her might relieve any guilt you have about it. But only you -not I -can make this decision. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am writing to protest something that has made shopping increasingly frustrating. Im referring to rude people who cut in ahead of customers who have been standing in line when the clerk calls out, Next, please. I place the responsibility solely on store manage-ment to ensure that lines move smoothly and fairly. Stores that have such arrangements are more likely to get my busi-ness. Management must empower clerks to insist on fairness in this regard. I have seen too many weak salespeople accept who-ever rushes forward first. Im sure that many other readers have experienced the same frustration I have. If you print this, I promise I will copy it and send it to the store management where Ive had these experiences. -AVERAGE SHOPPER, OAKLAND, CALIF.

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 1C Circus patriarch marks 80th, 2C By THOMAS J. SHEERAN Associated Press MEDINA, Ohio Like two aging baby boomers, Funky Winkerbean and creator Tom Batiuk have turned gray and have expe rienced their share of lifes ups and downs in a 40-year run on the funny pages. Batiuk, 65, has morphed his characters over the years from mop-headed beatniks to graying 60somethings, much like the changes for Batiuk, his hair over his collar in the 1970s but now graying and cut short. The story lines have changed, too, from high school hijinks and awk ward teen dating moments in the early years to deal ing with more adult issues like alcoholism, suicide and fighting cancer. His latest hot topic story line during May: two boys who want to go to the high school prom together. The strip debuted in more than 70 papers on March 27, 1972, and has grown to about 400. The first strip introduced the high school-age charac ters, including Funky (Im just an average kid) and Les (I really want to be far out like Roland) and issues important to teens, including meeting a girl, getting a date and dealing with acne. To Batiuk, delving back into the high school years with the gay prom issue underscores the genera tional changes and con temporary challenges his characters faced once he decided to let them begin aging along with Batiuk and the rest of us. I had crossed the threshold and I had grown up and the characters wanted to grow up too, it seemed like, Batiuk said in an interview in his cozy and bright studio jammed with books and mementos. Funky Winkerbean might have a lower profile in mainstream culture than, say, Doonesbury, possibly because Funky was a gag cartoon in the early years when society was highly politicized in the Vietnam era and has become more issue-ori ented since the 1990s, said industry watcher Robert Thompson of Syracuse University. Batiuk has taken Funky, Les and companions up the gym climbing rope in terror, through the ordeal of teen bullying, that first dating kiss and even Lisas struggle with cancer. One paper pulled the strip dur ing the cancer story line and complained that it wasnt funny. Himself a cancer survi vor, Batiuk said Lisas can cer, while traumatic for a funny-page audience resis tant to change, opened new opportunities for him. After that story, I real ized that I could go for ward, he said. It sort of opened the door or me. Such issues may depress some readers and turn away younger ones, said Charles Coletta, an instructor in pop culture at Bowling Green State University. Hes dealing with alco holism and people losing limbs and cancer and all at this stuff, Coletta said. I dont think hes going to be attracting lots of younger readers with this. Its all sort of, kind of sad a little bit. For Batiuk, though, the cartoons ups and downs were kind of like growing up and dealing with life. It became more nuanced and it became more complicated, he said. And thats just a lot of fun. The job became more interesting. Thats proba bly what drives it, gave me a chance to go into these more complicated, more interesting adult areas. A strip lasting 40 years Funky Winkerbean and its creator graying together ASSOCIATED PRESS A copy of the book Lisas Story sits amid stacks of finished Funky Winkerbean comic strips by cartoonist Tom Batiuk in his studio at his Medina, Ohio home. During its 40-year run on the funny pages, the characters and Batiuk have evolved and so have the story lines, from high school hijinks and awkward teen dating moments to dealing with adult issues like alcoholism, suicide and a long-running story line about character Lisas breast cancer fight. His latest hot topic story line during May: two boys who want to go to the high school prom together. FUNKY continued on 4C By LAURA HAMPSON email@example.com Maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle is crucial as men age into their senior years, health experts say. A diet high in fruits and vegetables is the best way to prevent illness, said Sarah Holdren, registered dietician for the Lake City Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Seniors can get extra servings by adding vegeta bles to regular dishes like egg scrambles and soups, she said. Whole fruits and veg etables are better options than juices, which are often sugary, she said. Adding beans and len tils to your diet is a good option because it has pro tein, but without the fat of animal protein, she said. It is also a great source of fiber. Increasing fiber intake can keep bowls function ing and lower cholesterol, Holdren said. Men over 50 should eat about 30 grams of fiber daily and look for whole grain products with at least 3 grams per serving. Fruits and veggies also add fiber to the diet, she said. Seniors should aim for 30 to 60 minutes of exercise on most days, she said. Exercise can be broken into 10 minute seg ments and still reap the cardiovascular and weight loss benefits, she said. Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America and the risk increases are you age. There is good news for those who want to take control of their risk, says Dan Zenka, senior vice president of communica tion at the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Recent research shows that eating right can help decrease the chance of developing prostate cancer, reduce the likelihood of recurrence and slow the progression of the disease. Here are 10 nutri tion tips for men to stay healthy as they age: Avoid empty calories by eliminating junk food. Snack on fruits, vegetables and nuts instead. Swap out soda and opt for water or natural juices. Rely on herbs, spices and garlic for flavor, not sugar, salt and fat. While fat is a nec essary component of a healthy diet, limit the amount you consume from red meat and dairy. Avocados, olives, nuts, seeds and tofu are healthy sources of fat. Trans fatty acids found in marga rine, however, should be avoided. Avoid taking more than 1,500 mg of calcium per day. Skip the supple ments and consume your calcium from leafy green vegetables, beans and fish. Eat more fish. Evidence from several studies suggests that fish can help protect against prostate cancer because they contain good fat, particularly omega-3 fatty acids. A lack of vegetables in the diet is a risk factor for aggressive prostate cancer. Vegetables in the broccoli-family are espe cially beneficial. Use olive oil for cooking for a maxi mum health benefit. Avoid over-supple mentation with megavita mins. Too many vitamins, especially folate, may fuel the cancer, and while a multivitamin is not likely to be harmful, if you follow a healthy diet with lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, and healthy oils, you likely wont even need a multivitamin. Marinate meat and turn it frequently to pre vent charring. Charred meat of any type can produce carcinogens. Alternatively, get your protein from vegetarian sources. No matter how sound your diet is, regular exer cise is its perfect pair. Recent research has sug gested that exercise may be one of the best natural antioxidants, eliminating inflammatory molecules that drive cancer. While eating well and exercising may make a difference in the long run, it doesnt always elimi nate your risk of having prostate cancer.

COURTESY Eating a diet high in whole fruits and vegetables is key to a healthy, balanced lifestyle, experts say. By LAURAN NEERGAARD AP Medical Writer WASHINGTON For people with Alzheimers disease, a hospital stay may prove catastrophic. People with dementia are far more likely to be hospitalized than other older adults, often for preventable reasons like an infection that wasnt noticed early enough. Hospitals can be upsetting to anyone, but consider the added fear factor if you cant remember where you are or why strangers keep poking you. Now a new study highlights the lingering ill effects: Being hospital ized seems to increase the chances of Alzheimers patients moving into a nursing home or even dying within the next year, Harvard researchers reported Monday. The risk is higher if those patients experience whats called delirium, a state of extra confusion and agita tion, during their stay. Its not clear exactly why, although specialists say delirium is especially bad for an already damaged brain. But the researchers, and indepen dent Alzheimers experts, agree that caregivers need to know the risk so they can help a loved one with dementia avoid the hospital if at all possible. Its a very stressful time, being in the hospital, says lead researcher Dr. Tamara Fong, of the Harvardaffiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital and Hebrew SeniorLife in Boston. Often families tell her, Dad was never the same after he had that surgery and he was confused. Its a challenge even for health professionals. Psychiatrist Leslie Fuchs watched in disbelief as her mother, whod had slowly worsening Alzheimers for several years, rapidly disintegrated during a stay in a New York City hospital last year. Relatives had called 911 when Thelma Fuchs, 79, suffered what appeared to be a brief seizure. That problem quickly cleared up but the hospital was reluctant to discharge her with it unexplained. Over a few days, Fuchs became increasingly distraught, tried to sneak into other rooms, and wound up being pre scribed some antipsychotic drugs, her daughter recalls. Leslie Fuchs insisted her mother be sent home, where she calmed down and no longer needed the medications. The family has taken steps for more at-home care in hopes of avoiding future hospitalizations. She has to be in an environment thats familiar. She cant make a new memory but her old memories, thats what kind of keeps her togeth er, Leslie Fuchs says. At home, she notes, family mem bers still are the decision-maker. As soon as youre in an emergency room, you kind of can lose that. Some 5.4 million Americans have Alzheimers or similar dementias, and the disease is on the rise as the population rapidly gets older. The disease will cost Medicare and Medicaid about $140 billion this year alone, according to the Alzheimers With Alzheimers, hospital stays can be a hazard HOSPITAL continued on 4C 1CAct2 Nutrition tips for senior men
