By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comWHITE SPRINGS — “Gone but not forgotten” was the final phrase etched on two bricks laid on a walkway in front of the White Springs Community Center Wednesday afternoon. it was the perfect phrase to described local sentiment for two men who died while protecting their commu-nity. The commemorative bricks were laid in honor of Florida Division of Forestry rangers Joshua Burch and Brett Fulton who died a year ago Wednesday. Twelve months ago Columbia County suffered a blow to its psyche when the pair of native sons were killed while fighting a wildfire. Burch, 31, of Lake City and Fulton, 52, who had a White Springs address, but lived in Columbia County in the Springville Community, were killed Monday, June 20, 2011, as they battled the Blue Ribbon fire, 14 miles east of Jasper in Hamilton County. Burch and Fulton were Florida Division of Forestry rangers (Now called the Florida Forest Service) with the Suwannee Forestry Center in Lake City. Wednesday the Town of White Springs held a Remembrance Day Service — a Celebration of Life, Duty and Sacrifice ceremo-ny, for Burch, Fulton and unsung heroes from the White Springs Fire Department who also battled the Blue Ribbon fire. More than 50 people, many of them friends and family of Burch and Fulton, attended the ceremo-ny, which lasted about 30 min-utes. Memorial wreaths were laid in honor of Burch and Fulton as Walter McKenzie, White Springs vice mayor, spoke about his per-sonal relationship with the men. McKenzie said he felt it was important to hold the ceremo-ny because in a small town like White Springs everyone knows each other. “It’s not just two fireman that passed away,” he said. “It’s two members of our family in town that passed away. It’s important to recognize the sacrifice that they made. Just like any family member, you don’t forget about them a year later and you don’t forget about them 10 years later. Those bricks will always be there and we’re going to remember these guys from now on.” For the past year the community has grieved, mourned and prayed together over its lost. In addition, there have been memo-rial ceremonies to commemorate the lives of the fallen forestry rangers. Mollie Gaylard, Joshua Burch’s mother, said the family is continu-ing to cope with the loss. “For me, this journey has been a very hard one,” she said by e-mail earlier this week. “The love between a mother and her son is special, such was ours. Much of the first few months of last year was like a dream — I remember so many friends and family coming and going from our home. My family has been so supportive, always there for me. I am thankful for my hus-band, Loyd, who loved Joshua so much, his father, Hollis, and wife, Judy, Joshua’s wife, Danielle, has remained close by my side and his many friends. Joshua leaves behind two precious sons, Jeremy, 10, and Jacob, 6, — they are the joy in our lives. We are all missing Joshua and trying to understand why.” Gaylard described Joshua as a special son and talked about him growing up with a love of hunting CALL US:(386) 752-1293SUBSCRIBE TOTHE REPORTER:Voice: 755-5445Fax: 752-9400 Opinion ................ 4APeople.................. 2AObituaries .............. 5A Advice & Comics ......... 8B Puzzles ................. 2B TODAY IN PEOPLE Wynonna ties the knot.

MEMORIAL continued on 3A White Springs Vice Mayor Walter McKenzie speaks during the Remembrance Day Service of Florida Division of Forestry firefight-ers Joshua Burch and Brett Fulton. The ceremony was sponsored by the town of White Springs. 911 service wasbriefly interrupted,officials confirmBy HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comLast Thursday, lightning struck the microwave tower at Columbia County’s Emergency Operations Center. The strike went through the phone lines, cutting off 911 phone service for 2 minutes and 29 seconds. “It went off at 2:57 came back on at 3:00 and we did not lose any incoming phone calls,” said senior staff assistant David Kraus. Based on information from emergency management pub-lic information officer Harvey Campbell, the Lake City Reporter reported Friday that service was limited but that emergency calls could still come through. However, the phone system was in fact briefly inoperable, offi-cials confirmed Tuesday. Records show no 911 calls were attempted during the outage. Kraus said it was unclear what had happened to the system until days later. “Because it was an emergency situation, you’ve got lots of differ-ent people saying lots of different things and not all of it is correct,” he said. As reported Friday, 911 service was not fully restored even when the phones came back up. Electricity from the strike surged through the phone system to the computer aided dispatch system, burning out two units. The CAD system controls the radios for dispatchers to call out to emergency services as well as the computer screens which dis-play data about incoming calls. “So they had incoming calls but they didn’t have the CAD ter-minals to dispatch the calls out of the field,” Kraus said. Emergency dispatchers used hand-held radios and cell phones to dispatch calls instead. According to 911 Call Center Director Sandy Morgan, the CAD system went out at 2:57 p.m. and came back on exactly one hour later at 3:57 p.m. During that time, nine calls came in. Morgan said all of the calls were respond-ed to. System went downagain Friday during attempt at repairs. By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comThe Tourist Development Council has already begun prepar-ing for the Jacksonville Storm’s annual summer softball show-case, happening at the Southeast Recreational Sports Complex from July 13-15. The Jacksonville Storm Softball Association is a youth travel orga-nization in Northeast Florida. TDC Director Harvey Campbell called the event the “Big Kahuna,” with over 90 teams expected to participate. College coaches from all over Florida will attend the event to survey local talent. The TDC plans to rent portable air conditioned restrooms to accommodate the crowds. Campbell recently visited Fort Lauderdale for the Florida Sports Foundation state conven-tion. “We are the twenty-second county now that will have an officially recognized sports com-mission,” Campbell said of the TDC’s new membership with the foundation. “We are branding ourselves as Suwannee River Valley, which is consistent with what we are doing already,” he said. Campbell said that through networking at the event, the TDC was able to book a new youth golf tournament. The tournament, scheduled to last three days, will take place at the Country Club at Lake City. With 100 participants and their parents expected to attend, Campbell said the tournament would bring good business. “Golfers tend to be a little bit more affluent, generally speak-ing,” he said. TDC preps for big influx of softballers By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comWith more than half of Columbia County students eli-gible for free and reduced-cost school meals, the federally-funded Summer Food Service Program aims to ensure chil-dren don’t go hungry over sum-mer break. The program funds local organizations to serve nutri-tious meals when school is out. All children ages 18 and under are eligible for free meals, said Madonna Coughlin, district director of food service. There are no registration forms or income requirements, she said. All children have to do is show up during the meal times and eat at the site, Coughlin said. Funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, administered by the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and spon-sored by the school district, the program helps fill the gap for children who rely on school meals. Meal sites are organized and run by churches, community centers and local organizations, she said. The program ensures local children eat regular, nutritious meals, keeping them healthy and ready for school. The meals, which are similar to school meals, help children return to school ready to learn “Hunger is a roadblock to the learning process,” Coughlin said. Days of operation vary depending on the meal site, but all sites are closed on Fridays. All meal sites will be closed July 2 through 6.

TALLAHASSEE Three out of five Florida voters say they favor Gov. Rick Scotts effort to purge potential non-citizens from the states voter rolls, but theyre still not sold on the governor himself, a new poll shows. The survey of 1,697 Florida voters by Quinnipiac (Conn.) University showed 60 percent in favor and 35 percent opposed to the governors attempts. Five percent didnt have an opinion. The margin of error in a snapshot of vot ers views taken between June 12 and June 18 was plus or minus 2.4 percent age points. Gov. Scott may be a lot less popular in Florida these days than President Barack Obama, but on the face-off between the two on the purge issue, Floridians seem to be solidly in Scotts corner, pollster Peter Brown said Wednesday. Whether this voter purge becomes a big deal issue in the campaign or not is not clear at this point. A similar majority, 56 percent, also supported the states stand your ground law that allows citizens to defend them selves with deadly force if they feel threatened. Thirty-seven percent said they oppose the law. There was a significant partisan and racial division on both issues in the poll released Wednesday. Republicans back the effort to search out pos sible illegal voters by 90 percent to 8 percent while Democrats are opposed by a 60 percent to 33 percent. Independents also sup port the governor on the issue by 59 percent to 37 percent. White voters (67 percent to 29 percent) and Hispanics (49 percent to 42 percent) supported the purging effort compared to black voters, who opposed it by 56 percent to 38 per cent. Republicans also were strongly behind the socalled stand your ground law, 81 percent to 12 percent. Democrats were opposed by a 2-to-1 margin and independents favored the measure by 55 percent to 39 percent. Scotts popularity, how ever, still lags with 39 percent of the respondents who said they approved of his performance as governor compared to 49 percent to disapprove. He still is having trouble getting his foot ing, Brown said, noting that even Republicans have been slow to embrace the new governor. Theres something with Scott that doesnt fit well. It may be that it appears to people hes not Mr. Personality. Brown pointed out that formers Republican gover nors Jeb Bush and Charlie Crist were hugely popular within the party, although Crists standing with GOP voters plunged after he left the GOP to run an unsuc cessful campaign for the U.S. Senate as an indepen dent. Womans body found in bag HOMESTEAD Homicide detectives are investigating after a womans body was found in a bag outside a South Florida residence. Miami-Dade Police said 29-year-old Phyllis Cotton was found outside the home around 3 a.m. Monday. Its unclear how she died or if she had any con nection to the home where her body was found. No other details were released. Higher education gets high marks TALLAHASSEE A business-backed national study gives Floridas public colleges and universities high marks for student access and success as well as efficiency. The chairman of the board that oversees Floridas 12 state univer sities said Wednesday it was evidence the states accountability framework is working. Tuesdays report was released by the Institute for a Competitive Workforce, an arm of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Chairman Dean Colson noted Florida was the only state that received an A in student access and success for both fourand two-year schools. Floridas universities also had the lowest cost per completion at $46,071 per student while its 2-year colleges ranked third at $38,146. The state, though, received C grades for meeting labor market demand and transparency and accountability. Florida was also graded a D in innovation. Poll: Majority of Florida voters support purge NASHVILLE, Tenn. Country singer Wynonna Judd has tied the knot. Her publicist, Todd Brodginski, confirms that she married drummer Cactus Moser in a private family ceremony on Sunday. The wedding took place in Leipers Fork, Tenn. This is the third mar riage for 48-year-old Judd. The couple had been dating since 2009. Judd divorced her second husband, D.R. Roach in 2007 after four years together. She has two children with her first hus band, Arch Kelly III. US Weekly first reported the news. The Grammy-winning singer first gained fame as part of the duo The Judds with her mother Naomi, before going solo. She has sold more than 10 million solo albums with hits includ ing No One Else on Earth and I Saw the Light. Rapper wounded in club shooting HOUSTON A publi cist says a rapper was one of at least two men wound ed in gunfire that left three people dead at a parking lot outside a southwest Houston strip mall. A spokeswoman for Trae Tha Truth, whose real name is Frazier Thompson III, says he was shot in the shoulder early Wednesday after perform ing at a club nearby. Nancy Byron says she does not believe Thompson was targeted. Police say shots were fired outside Scores Cabaret soon after 3 a.m. Wednesday as hundreds of people were in the parking lot. Police say two men and a woman died at the scene, while Thompson and another man were taken to hospitals. Hospital spokes woman Lynne Sullivant says the rapper has been treated and released. No arrests have been made. Museum returns water jug to Italy TOLEDO, Ohio The Toledo Museum of Art says it will return an ancient water jug to Italy that inves tigators believe was prob ably illegally dug up from that country years ago. The 2,500-year-old water vessel, or kalpis, has been on display at the Ohio museum since 1982, when it was purchased from an antiquities dealer out of Switzerland. It will be displayed in the museums Libbey Court until it leaves for Rome, probably in late summer. The right thing to do is to return this object, muse um Director Brian Kennedy told The Blade newspaper. We knew wed likely lose this. Well miss it. Italy has pressed an aggressive campaign to win back ancient Roman, Greek and Etruscan vases, bowls, statues and other artifacts prosecutors contend were looted from the country. The campaign was set in motion after a police raid on a Swiss warehouse of an Italian art dealer found a trove of artifacts and photos of antiquities, many of them still covered with dirt from being hastily excavated by antiquities hunters in Italy. Black painting on the orangey clay vessel at the Toledo museum depicts the Greek tale of Dionysos, the god of wine and drama. The late museum curator Kurt Luckner had recommended Toledo buy the kalpis for $90,000, and its acquisi tion was a coup for Toledo because the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York had also wanted it at the time. Authorities believe the 20inch artifact was probably illegally excavated in Italy, smuggled to Switzerland and given a forged record of ownership. To clear the way for its return to Italy, federal prosecutors filed a complaint Wednesday in U.S. District Court asking a judge to order the jug forfeited. Last year, a mermaid holding a candy dish, the Nereid Sweetmeat Stand, was returned by the Toledo museum to the Dresden Museum in Germany. Made in the mid-1700s, it had been stolen during World War II. New X-rays of the porcelain piece showed fine cracks that matched photographs taken in the 1930s when it was still in Germany. Wynonna marries drummer Country singer Wynonna, from The Judds, performs at the Girls Night Out: Superstar Women of Country in Las Vegas. Judd married drummer Cactus Moser in a private family cer emony June 17.

Joshua loved working for the Division of Forestry. He lived and breathed his work. He gave his life and is a great hero in the eyes of so many. This is a legacy he left and this was the way he was raised to help people, his honesty and love has gotten us through this year and Joshua will remain in all our hearts forever. The goodness and kindness of my family and people who knew Joshua amaz-es me when I think back on the past year, Joshua’s deep love for his family, I just can-not describe how much he loved us.” Margaret Fulton also spoke about she and her family coping with the loss of her husband during the past year. “It’s been hard some times but we try to stay busy,” she said. Fulton said the toughest coping times occurred on Brett’s birthday, June 26, less than a week after the tragedy. “That was very hard,” she said, noting that Christmas was another tough time when the family had to cope with its loss. “We went to the mountains because I didn’t want to be here at Christmas. Then, there is every day. If I didn’t have my kids and my family I would definitely be lost.” Fulton said attending ceremonies dedicated to the memory of her husband and Joshua Burch has also helped the fami-lies. Burch and Fulton were veteran forestry rangers. Each man had a decade worth of experience with the Florida Division of Forestry. MEMORIALContinued From Page 1A JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterThree bricks honoring Brett Fulton, Joshua Burch and the ‘ unsung heroes’ of the Blue Ribbon Fire were unveiled outside of the White Springs Community Center. “We never did not have radio contact,” Morgan said. “We had our portable radios that we were talking to them with.” Also affected by the strike were a portion of the Internet-based phone system, the record-ing system and the card-coded door locks in the building. Kraus said the Emergency Operations Center building is equipped with a grounding sys-tem and many precautions meant to keep lightning from affecting the system. This particular bolt of lightning, however, behaved in an unpredictable way. “It came into the system in a way that nobody anticipated it coming into the system,” Kraus said. While trying to fix equipment on Friday, the microwave signal went down a second time. “It was just a bad connection,” Kraus said. “And when they were back there checking them and fixing them they brushed the cable and it separated the signal from the microwave towers.” The second time the signal went down it took 10 minutes for the dispatch center to radio out to the Sheriff’s office and around 30 minutes for the Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services. Kraus said that the back-up system, located in a trailer out-side the Sheriff’s officer, was not needed for the interruption on Thursday. If the system had been needed, however, it would have taken at least an hour to set it up. “If we had to activate the trailer, it does take a minimum of an hour to two to three hours to activate it because you have to contact AT&T and tell them to switch the phone lines and then you have to make sure everything is up and running and test all of the equipment,” Kraus said. Kraus said the 911 Communications Committee, which meets every Tuesday at the Columbia County Combined Communications Center, is dis-cussing further precautions to take in the future. “One of the things we are looking at doing is basically radio bases stations as backup at each dispatchers location,” Kraus said. “So that if the radio does go down, they can pick up.” Kraus said though there was a frantic sense during the signal outage, city and county officials came together to resolve the situation. “If you get beyond the political level of things, when it gets down to it, the city, the county, the Sheriff’s Department all work really well together,” Kraus said. “Everybody worked together great and that’s a good thing,” Fire Chief David Boozer said. “There wasn’t any lines drawn in the dirt, so to speak. The city, county worked together to take care of whatever the problem was and that’s what you want.” 911Continued From Page 1A Avona Randolph, a fourth-grader at Westside Elementary, wa s the only student in the county to earn a perfect score on this year’s writing portion of the Florida Compr ehensive Assessment Test.

ONE OPINION Mitt Romney stumbles on immigration LETTERS TO THE EDITOR This letter is in response to the letter by Mr. Darrell Anderson published in the Reporter on Sunday, 06/17/12. His letter was in response to my letter of 06/06/12 in which I used the word “gibberish” in describing his first letter, pub-lished June 3, 2012, in which he denigrated some of our country’s finest living patriotic spokesmen. His primary point was their not having served in the Military during the Vietnam War and I suppose he consid-ers them disqualified to speak or run for public office. In my response of 06/06/12, I identi-fied 11 others that he had failed to mention. All females some of whom have held and are now holding high office in the coun-try. In his latest letter he picked up on that point, in particular, and must have felt an obligation to include them is his current criticism by attacking their hus-bands for not having served in Vietnam. Once again to me his letter is “gibberish.” It makes no sense. If he thinks that being a Vietnam Vet is a requirement for public office then say that without the gibberish. Write and then maybe include a like number of liberals as well. That would be easy to do as Liberals were notoriously absent from the Vietnam War. He seems to have a hang-up on Vietnam. So for the record once again I am in fact a proud retired Army officer and in addition to 2 tours in Korea during that war I also served 3 tours in Vietnam dur-ing which I received 2 Silver Stars, 4 Bronze Stars, and 4 Purple Hearts. That, however, does not in itself qualify me for public office nor would it qualify Mr. Anderson or anyone else for any public office. Love of coun-try and an ability to lead and get the job done does. Also I like numbers that can be understood so here are some; of 18 Republican Presidents 4 did not serve in the military; 14 Democrat Presidents 6 did not serve in the military. The last Republican President served as a F-102 fighter pilot in the National Guard. His father, a former President was also a naval pilot in WW2. The last 2 Democratic Presidents did not serve in the armed forces. 1 received a 2-A Student Deferment and the one we now have worked with ACORN and did not serve. However we must all keep in mind that the President is in fact “Commander and Chief of all US Armed Forces” while in office.Wilbur G.

The candidate is not assured of pre-screened friendly audi-ences, who are disposed to for-give and forget if their favorite candidate stumbles badly. Mitt Romney, with all his experience running for office, surely knows this. But last weekend, on his first venture in 2012 outside the friendly confines of Fox News, he did indeed stumble badly. President Barack Obama had just announced his plan to allow younger illegal immi-grants, brought to this country as youngsters and maintaining spotless records since, to obtain work permits and legal residen-cy renewable every two years. The Republicans hotly accused Obama of “playing politics.” Excuse us while we lie down with a cold compress on our forehead at the febrile thought that, with just over four months to go to the election, a politician would play politics. Appearing outside his protective media shell for the first time Sunday, on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Romney refused five times to say whether he, as president, would revoke the executive order he had just fin-ished denouncing. He should have been prepared for the question; certainly his advisers must have seen it coming. But he left the impres-sion that he honestly didn’t have an answer; either that or he was afraid anything he said would offend one or another of his constituencies. Romney attempted to deflect the questions by saying if Obama “felt seriously about this, he should have taken action when he had a Democrat House and Senate, but he didn’t.” In fact, Obama in 2010 offered a version of the DREAM Act that would have led to citi-zenship, but Senate Republicans killed it. That’s another pitfall Romney should have been warned about. Romney has yet to offer his own immigration plan except for his detail-free promise to work with Congress on a long-term solution. The immigration debate has been at a rolling boil since at least 2005, so no real hurry there. One of the GOP’s most promising young stars may have been a collateral victim of Romney’s waffling: Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, the party’s best hope of rebuilding links to the Hispanic community and a favorite of the tea party and influential Republicans like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Rubio was said to be ready with his own version of the DREAM Act. But ABC News reports that team Romney has not asked Rubio for his personal finan-cial records, a first step in the vetting process and “a strong indication that he is not on Romney’s short list of potential running mates.” The Romney campaign is indeed shifting gears, just not smoothly. T he soft coup in Egypt over the past week shouldn’t have sur-prised anyone. The only reason it wasn’t harder and faster was because the secularist generals know the Muslim Brotherhood has a friend in the White House. Egypt’s armed forces are an elite class with special power, privileges and important economic interests it wants to retain. Despite everything that was at stake over the recent chaotic months, the generals couldn’t simply send in the tanks to do a Tiananmen Squaredance on the dissidents. The whole world was watching; the loyalty of the troops wasn’t guaranteed; and the Obama administration was cheering on the Islamic revolution. Instead, ailing President Hosni Mubarak, a long-standing U.S. ally who was put on life support Tuesday, was thrown under the bus, a transi-tion government was set up and reforms promised. Appearances to the contrary, the military was never serious about surrendering power. The main problem the generals have been facing is time. They are try-ing to wait out President Obama. They know there is a U.S. elec-tion in November that may elevate Republican Mitt Romney, who isn’t fixated on ensuring the success of the Muslim Brotherhood. At the same time, they cannot be certain Mr. Obama will be defeated and thus cannot simply reassert military rule overtly, risking future bil-lions in U.S. aid. The timeline for writing the new constitution is geared toward getting past America’s presidential election. The han-dover of power scheduled for the end of June will be symbolic only; the new president will take office with limited ability to take action. Throughout the summer and fall, the Egyptian constitution will be written, debated, rewritten and voted on. By the end of the year, Egypt’s generals will know whether they have to maintain this liberal charade for another four years or there will be a new American president they can deal with. P resident Obama says the illegal immi-grants being given de-facto amnesty under his suspension-of-deportation policy are “Americans in their heart, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper.” Under the circumstances, Mr. Obama is probably the wrong person to make that argument. The new policy, announced Friday, suspends enforcement of immigration laws against aliens who were brought to America before they turned 16 but are younger than 30 and have been in the country for at least five consecutive years. They are also allowed to apply for temporary work permits. The White House denies this is an election-year move. “The president isn’t going to be stonewalled by politics,” an unnamed administration offi-cial told Politico. Despite such protestations, the calculations behind the move are transpar-ent. The White House probably believes the gains they will make among Hispanic voters in battleground states in the South and Southwest will exceed the number of voters alienated by Obama-instituted amnesty. Amnesty hits the economy hard. “These are young people who study in our schools, they play in our neighborhoods, they’re friends with our kids, they pledge allegiance to our flag,” the president said in an attempt to redirect the national conversation. What he left out is that these newcomers also take our jobs. Most of the estimated 800,000 immigrants to whom the policy applies are of work-ing age, pitted against young citizens in the competition for scarce employment. The strug-gle is fierce; youth unemploy-ment and underemployment are about double what the rest of the country is suffering. Another problem central to amnesty is the Obama administration’s disturbing ten-dency not to enforce laws Mr. Obama doesn’t like. The Justice Department stopped enforc-ing the Defense of Marriage Act, for example. Mr. Obama believes the president is in a position to pick and choose which laws he wants to enforce based solely on his personal preferences. Selective non-enforcement of the law presents a criti-cal constitutional question. A president who ignores laws he disagrees with stands in direct violation of his constitutional requirements. Every president swears that he “will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States,” and Article 2, Section 3, clause 4 states that the president “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” It is clear that the Constitution was not designed to give the executive branch discretionary power over whether to execute the law. The Founding Fathers did not design a government in which duly passed and signed laws would then be selectively allowed to wither on the vine through presidential inaction. Does the administration argue that the executive may ignore any and every law on the books if he so chooses? Could a Republican administration also stop collecting taxes it disap-proved of or enforcing job-kill-ing environmental protection laws? And could Mr. Obama instruct the Justice Department not to enforce laws regarding election irregularities in states and precincts where that might work to his advantage? The White House needs to clarify how far the do-nothing presi-dency goes.Egyptiancoup nosurprise Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service.

TOM MURPHY, AP Business Writer One of the biggest mis conceptions about President Obamas health care over haul isnt who the law will cover, but rather who it wont. If it survives Supreme court scrutiny, the landmark overhaul will expand cov erage to about 30 million uninsured people, according to government figures. But an estimated 26 million U.S. residents will remain with out coverage a popula tion thats roughly the size of Texas and includes illegal immigrants and those who cant afford to pay out-ofpocket for health insurance. Many people think that this health care law is going to cover everyone, and its not, says Nicole Lamoureux, executive direc tor of the Alexandria, Va.based National Association of Free & Charitable Clinics, which represents about 1,200 clinics nationally. To be sure, its estimated that the Affordable Care Act would greatly increase the number of insured Americans. The law has a provision that requires most Americans to be insured or face a tax penalty. It also calls for an expansion of Medicaid, a governmentfunded program that cov ers the health care costs of low-income and disabled Americans. Additionally, starting in 2014, there will be tax credits to help middleclass Americans buy cover age. The Supreme Court is expected to hand down a decision this month on whether to uphold the law completely or strike down parts or all of it. If it survives, about 93 percent of all nonelderly, legal U.S. residents will be covered by 2016. Thats up from 82 percent this year. Still, millions of illegal immigrants wont qualify for coverage. This population will account for roughly 26 percent of those who will remain uninsured, accord ing to Urban Institute, a non partisan think tank. And many legal U.S. resi dents will go without insur ance, too. About 36 per cent of the population that remains uninsured will qual ify for Medicaid but wont sign up for various reasons. Others likely will make too much money to qualify for assistance but be unable to afford coverage. Heres a look at some of the groups that will likely remain uninsured if the law survives: ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS More than 11 million unau thorized immigrants live in the United States, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, a nonpartisan research cen ter. That amounts to nearly 4 percent of the total popula tion. But there are no pro visions that address illegal immigrants in the health care law. They wont be able to sign up for Medicaid. They wont be eligible for the tax credits to help buy coverage. And they wont be able to use online marketplaces that the government will set up in order for people to get cov erage in a process thats sim ilar to buying plane tickets on travel web sites. Those online exchanges, much like the tax credits, will require proof of citizenship. They will still need to find alternative ways to seek care because nothing in the law really expands cover age and affordable coverage options for undocumented immigrants, says Sonal Ambegaokar, a health policy attorney with the National Immigration Law Center in Los Angeles. The topic is a politically divisive issue. On one side, there are people who say that the government should provide health care for all U.S. residents legal or not. The other side contends that doing so could take valuable resources away from U.S. citizens. Because of the limited supply of health care, were almost in a sociological tri age, says Bob Dane, spokes man for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, a national group that calls for stricter immi gration laws. It begs the question, Who do we serve, who do we serve first and who is not entitled? Researchers have found that immigrants tend to use the health care system less than legal residents. Illegal immigrants, in particular, tend to avoid using the health care system until they have to, favoring home rem edies first or making cash payments to providers when they need care. That popula tion also is younger, so it generally has fewer health care needs, says Timothy Waidmann, a researcher with Urban Institute. The think tank, using federal government survey data, estimates that illegal Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2012 7A 7AHEALTH By MICHAEL FELBERBAUM AP Tobacco Writer RICHMOND, Va. Sometimes a cigar isnt just a cigar. From large hand-rolled cigars and smaller machine-made cigars to little cigars that are similar in size to cigarettes, there are nearly as many cigars as there are aficionados to enjoy them. And as federal regulators weigh standards for the entire industry, some in the cigar world are pushing to make sure their livelihoods and the products they enjoy dont go up in smoke. While the Food and Drug Administration has expressed its intention to regulate cigars under a 2009 law that gave it authority over the tobacco indus try, it has yet to specify whats ahead as it ramps up efforts to curb the death and disease caused by tobacco. If its anything like the FDAs regulation of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, that could mean banning certain flavors, requiring new health warnings, limiting the sizes and shapes of cigars, or imposing restrictions for marketing, advertising and retail sales. Cigars also may be restricted from being sold sepa rately and the agency also could limit the amount of nicotine in the products. The premium cigar indus try argues any number of the potential restrictions could hurt both cigar makers and specialty tobacco stores, whose products make up only a small fraction of tobacco sales, dont pose the same concerns as cigarettes, and the range of sizes and shapes of cigars makes across-the-board standards almost impossible. Even the House Appropriations Committee weighed in on issue in its report on the fiscal year 2013 Agriculture Appropriations bill on Tuesday, reminding the FDA that premium cigars have unique characteristics and cost prohibitive price points and are not marketed to kids. Any effort to regulate cigars should take these items into consideration. If youre going to focus your efforts on regulating tobacco products to meet the spirit and intent of the Tobacco Control Act, where is best to spend those scarce resources on a tenth of a percent of the market or on a huge chunk of the market? asked Bill Spann, CEO of the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association, an industry group representing more than 2,000 tobacco retail ers and more than 350 cigar manufacturers, distributors and others. According to the latest federal data, there are about 13.3 million cigar smokers in the U.S., far less than the 45.3 million U.S. cigarette smokers. U.S. tobacco sales topped $107 billion in 2011, but only 7 per cent, or $7.77 billion, consisted of cigars, according to statistics from Euromonitor International. And of the 7 billion cigars sold annually, only about 250 million of them qualify as premium, handmade cigars that range in price from $6 to $30 and are as far as Spann is concerned akin to fine wines and craft beer. While Spann recognizes the need for tobacco regulation, he believes smoking premium cigars is a hobby, not a habit, and they arent marketed or sold to children. You dont have a middleschooler or high-schooler stand ing on the corner with a $15 Davidoff (a brand of cigar) stick ing out of their mouth, Spann said. Possible restrictions to pre mium cigars have been a topic of conversation at any one of Craig Cass specialty tobacco shops in North Carolina and South Carolina, where smokers often make use of lounge areas to smoke and chat. Theyre worried about los ing the artisan nature of our products, where every time they come in theres something new to select from, Cass said, adding that customers arent just coming in to grab their smokes, they are looking for a particular cigar to suit their mood or the situation. If regulations force cigar mak ers to conform their products, that could limit the number of cigars available for aficionados to choose from the stores large, walk-in humidors. All of that range of flavor is very unique to every single box in the humidor, Cass said. If we were like the other category of tobacco like a cigarette, you could walk in the humidor and have 10 boxes of cigars in there. ... We have 700. Cass interaction with custom ers could also change under federal regulations, putting the cigars behind the counter rather than in a humidor where cus tomers can smell, touch and see a variety of cigars. In Canada, for example, cigar shops now have binders with a list of available cigars that customers can point to on a piece of paper. Cass and Spann have joined with others in the cigar industry to seek a change in Congress to protect premium hand-rolled cigars from FDA regulation and save 85,000 small business jobs around the country. Resolutions in both the House and the Senate remain in committee. In the House, the resolu tion sponsored by U.S. Rep. Bill Posey, a Republican from Florida home to many of the nations premium cigar makers has gained more than 200 co-sponsors. The Senate resolu tion, sponsored by Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, also from Florida, has more than 10 cosponsors. As far as regulation is con cerned, the greatest need is to put an end to the produc tion and marketing of products that have the greatest appeal to youth, said Matt Myers, president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, singling out machine-made large cigars, little cigars and tobacco wrappers that sold at convenience stores for low prices and in a variety of fla vors like peach and strawberry. Nearly 19 percent of high school boys currently smoke cigars, according to the 2009 Youth Risk Behavior Survey. Thats slightly less than the 2005 rate of 19.2 percent. These highly flavored little cigars clearly appeal dispropor tionately to young people and have the potential to serve as starter tobacco products, Myers said. While all cigars increase the risk of disease, Myers said the FDA has the ability to segment which cigar products pose the greatest risk both in terms of disease and in terms of youth use and to design regulations appropriate for each, which is what wed like to see them do. Richmond, Va.-based Altria Group Inc., owner of Black & Mild cigar maker John Middleton, said in a statement that if the FDA asserts regula tion over cigars, it should be science-based and apply to all cigar manufacturers. Machinemade Black & Mild cigars and cigarillos are sold in flavor vari eties such as sweet, wine and apple. But for Rocky Patel, who quit his job as an entertainment lawyer in California to start a boutique cigar business out of his garage, legislative or regu latory exemption of premium handmade cigars is vital to his survival and the about 2,000 people he directly or indirectly employs. I gave up a law practice to start this dream ... I worked relentlessly and built this com pany and started with nothing, Patel said of his Florida-based cigar company. We went from making 100,000 cigars to about 18 million cigars (each year) and all this could be taken away with the stroke of a pen from the FDA. Cigar lovers to FDA: A cigar isnt just a cigar Smoke curls around a cigar as a smoker enjoys a cigar at a shop in Richmond, Va., Wednesday, June 20, 2012. The Food and Drug Administration intends to regulate cigars under a 2009 law that gave it authority over the tobacco industry and cigar makers and aficionados are pushing to ensure their livelihoods and the products they enjoy. ASSOCIATED PRESS Uninsured after President Obamas health care law HEALTH continued on 8A


immigrants accounted for an estimated $18 billion of the $1.4 trillion spent on health care in the United States in 2007. That adds up to less than 2 percent of total spend ing. Some say excluding ille gal immigrants from the overhaul will keep some legal residents uninsured, too. Ambegaokar, the Los Angeles attorney, points to parents who are illegal immigrants but have chil dren who are legal citizens because they were born in the United States. LOST IN TRANSLATION Medicaid, which current ly covers more than 60 mil lion people, is expected to add about 17 million more people to its program by 2016 if the law is upheld, according to the nonparti san Congressional Budget Office, which research es budgetary issues for Congress. But people are still expected to fall through the cracks. Thats because the requirements and process for signing up for Medicaid can be confusing. And while the overhaul aims to make the process easier, it wont smooth out all the wrinkles. The problem? Many peo ple dont realize that they qualify for coverage. And that likely will still be the case, albeit to a lesser extent, after Medicaid expands. Coverage depends on how someones income stacks up to federal poverty guide lines, which can be obscure to the average person. Plus, because income can fluctu ate, someone could qualify one year but not the next. Regardless of how much outreach you do ... youre never going to get per fect enrollment, Matthew Buettgens, another Urban Institute researcher, says. Staying enrolled can be another hurdle. Medicaid recipients have to re-enroll, sometimes more than once a year. They can be dropped if they miss deadlines, sub mit incomplete forms or if paperwork doesnt catch up with them after they move something poor families tend to do more frequently than the average American household. There will always be that segment that says, Aw, the heck with it, I will just wait until I get sick and go to the ER, says Stephen Schilling, CEO of Clinica Sierra Vista, a nonprofit that has a network of 27 community health centers in California. Schilling expects to still see a lot of uninsured patients at the nonprofit groups health centers even if the law is upheld. The center sits in an agri cultural area in Californias San Joaquin Valley, popu lated with migrant workers and saddled with an unem ployment rate of around 15 percent. It cares for about 60,000 uninsured people annually, thanks in part to grants and a sliding fee scale for patients based on their family size and income. Schilling says he still expects between 20,000 and 40,000 uninsured patients if the overhaul is implemented. LIVING IN THE GAP The overhaul calls for tax credits to help middleclass Americans buy cover age. But some people who make too much money to qualify for the tax credits may have a hard time find ing an affordable option for private health insurance The subsidies can pay a large chunk of the insur ance bill. For instance, a 40year-old person who makes $50,000 in 2014 and needs coverage for a family of four might receive a gov ernment tax credit of more than $8,000. That would cover more than 70 percent of the pre mium, or the cost of cover age, according to a subsidy calculator on the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundations website. Of course, that estimate depends on the type of coverage the person choses, where they live and whether they can get cov erage through work. But the tax credits will go to people with incomes up to 400 percent of the federal poverty level, or $44,680 for an individual this year. People just above that level may have a hard time finding affordable health insurance. Angela Agnew Laws worries that she might remain uninsured like she has been for the past eight years even if the health care law is upheld. Laws, who lives in Leesburg, Va., runs a small business that cleans and maintains commercial buildings. She hopes her income will climb to about $60,000 by 2014, which would be too high for tax credit help. A plan that offers more than just basic protection against big medical expens es could cost as much as $10,000 annually for Laws. She could find less exten sive coverage for a lower premium, but that may only save about $1,000. Laws, 58, figures that shell remain uninsured if she cant find an affordable coverage option that fits a monthly budget already crammed with payments of $1,203 for rent $530 toward her car. Its a scary prospect for me, she says. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 8AHealth Accepting New Patients Medicare, Blue Cross and most insurance plans accepted, worker compensation Specializing in adult medical care including: Primary Care High Blood Pressure Heart Disease Lung Disease Gastrointestinal High Cholesterol Diabetes Headache Evaluation and Treatment Arthritis Low Back Problems Evaluation and Treatment Optifast Weight Loss System Full Dizziness, vertigo and balance diagnosis and treatment Womens Health Accepting New Patients SOUTHERN INTERNAL MEDICINE Located in the Lake City Mediplex Building 404 N.W.

All-American honor By BRANDON FINLEY bfinley@lakecityreporter.com What better way to cap off a career than to be named among the best in your sport. Lake City native Blayne Barber capped off his career at Auburn University with a Division I PING First-Team AllAmerican season for the first time in his career. Barber was named to the group by the Golf Coaches Association of America after the stroke-play portion of the NCAA Championship. Being named an All-American is nothing new for Barber. He was named second-team All-American as both a freshman and a sophomore. His first year was played at the University of Central Florida before transferring to the Tigers with head coach Nick Clinard a move Barber called the best of his career. In his second sea son with the Tigers, Barber broke the Auburn 36-year-old single-season stroke average by record ing a 70.76 for the year. That record broke the old mark of Buddy Gardners at 70.90 in 1976. But that wasnt the only record for Barber. The junior also set the Tigers career stroke aver age record with 70.83 for two seasons. The old record was set by Lee Williams from 2000-2005 with a 72.38 mark. Barber finished with seven top-5 finishes this year and finished in the top-20 10 times this season. Barber led the Tigers in rounds counted (.939), rounds at par or better (21), sub-par rounds (16) and rounds in the 60s (11). Barber currently ranks No. 8 in the Golfweek/ Sagarin Rankings for amateur golfers. His best finishes last year came at the E-Z-Go Schenkel Invitational and the Hootie at Bulls Bay. Both finishes were second place. Barber is Auburns fourth first-team All-American in the schools history. He is the first PING First-Team All-American in Lake Citys history.

Barber was selected as a first-team All-American at Auburn this season. Heat on brink of NBA Championship Associated Press MIAMI LeBron James has never been here before. Hes been in nearly every imaginable situation everything over his nine seasons marked by three MVP awards, three trips to the NBA Finals with two teams and one decision that changed everything. And now this: For the first time, hes one win from a championship. I have a job to do, James said Wednesday. And my job is not done. The job may get done tonight, when the Miami Heat up 3-1 in this title series host the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 5 of the finals. Even after leaving Game 4 late with a cramp, James is on the cusp of finally becom ing a champ. He was swept in his first finals trip in 2007, then he and the Heat fell in the 2011 title series in six games. After countless ups and downs, the 804th game of his career may be the one that ends his title quest. I have no idea what Ill say before we go out there, said James, who got treat ment against Wednesday but said soreness that fol lowed the cramps in his left leg was easing. It kind of just comes to me when Im getting ready to go out there and stand on the floor. But hopefully what ever I say will inspire our guys to go out and give a good show. James joined the Heat in 2010 after Miami con vinced him that he would have enough help to win a championship more spe cifically, that he wouldnt have to carry the load by himself, like he did so many times in Cleveland over his first seven sea sons. The Heat were keep ing Dwyane Wade, adding Chris Bosh and filling out the roster with a mix that would be best described as unconventional. If that axiom more options are better actu ally needed to be proven, it was done in Game 4. James could not finish the game, though he returned after the first wave of cramps hit and delivered a key 3-point er. With James watching the final minute, Wade and Mario Chalmers helped close out the Thunder, Miami winning 104-98 to move one win away from the franchises second championship. History not on Thunders side MIAMI Down 3-1 in the NBA Finals, history says the Oklahoma City Thunder arent coming back. Nobody have ever ral lied from that deficit in the NBA Finals. Then again, few have erased a 2-0 defi cit in any playoff series, and the Thunder did that just one round ago when they charged past the San Antonio Spurs. So dont write off the Thunder just yet. Kevin Durant says they are going to keep fighting to the end, starting with Game 5 tonight against the Miami Heat. If the Thunder win, they would get the series back to Oklahoma City, where they are 9-1 this postseason. Harden expected to play with bruised hand MIAMI Oklahoma City reserve James Harden has a bruised left hand but is expected to play tonight in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Harden was hurt during the Thunders 104-98 loss to the Miami Heat on Tuesday. A Thunder spokesman says Harden took part in some of Wednesdays practice, but also iced his hand and sat out a portion. The Sixth Man of the Years struggles have helped the Heat build a 3-1 lead. Harden has shot 2 of 10 in both games in Miami, falling to 13 for 37 (35 percent) in the series. He is averaging 10.8 points, six points below his regular-season average. Thunder vow to keep fighting in Finals series.

DEAR ABBY: Over the years you have published letters about the hard work done by wives who stayed at home and advised that husbands should share some of the load. I am a male. When I was married I got up with the kids, made breakfast, packed their lunches, cleaned the kitchen and left for work. I did 90 per-cent of the grocery shop-ping and prepared dinner four or five nights a week. On weekends, I cut the grass, trimmed shrubs and repaired whatever needed fixing. I took care of the cars and found time to have fun with the kids. My wife liked late-night TV and was too tired to get up in the morning. She also loved the morning talk shows and shopping. She did laundry, but I paid for a cleaning lady because vacuuming hurt her back. When I resisted her controlling ways, she would become violent. She was jealous, dependent, pos-sessive and angry. After 29 years, I’d had enough. She got the house, the money, the anger and the dog. And me? I got the happiness! -FREE MAN IN FLORIDA DEAR FREE MAN: It is no longer shocking to hear about long mar-riages being dissolved. In your case, while the financial penalty may be sizable, it appears to have been worth it. When a relationship becomes one-sided and counseling can’t resolve the conflicts, divorce is the answer. Because of the years of domestic abuse you endured, I hope you will consider counseling so your future relationships will not be adversely affect-ed by your long, unhappy marriage. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My daughter, “Tammi,” is attending college in a neighboring state. When I text or call her, she doesn’t respond. I have asked her to please just text me back saying she’s OK. She says my texting her once a day is “overkill” and I should stop doing it so often -once a week is often enough. I feel it is disrespectful of Tammi not to respond to my texts, even with a simple “OK” or “fine.” I’m willing to compromise and text Tammi every other day or every three days. She is my only child and I want to know that she is well. Am I ask-ing too much? -TAMMI’S MOM IN NEW JERSEY DEAR MOM: Tammi may be your only child, but she’s a young woman now, and she needs room to grow up and establish some emotional inde-pendence. What you’re demanding is an example of helicopter parenting. If you are worried for your daughter’s safety, ask her to carry a card in her wal-let identifying you as the person to be notified in case of an emergency. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Would you settle a small disagreement? When we are being seated in a restaurant, my husband thanks the maitre d’, the server when he is handed the menu and again when his order is taken. He also thanks the server when his meal arrives at the table, when his iced tea is served, when it is refilled and when the bill is handed to him. As we are on our way out, he again thanks the maitre d’ or hostess. Isn’t this overdoing a good thing? -SUFFERING IN SILENCE DEAR SUFFERING: I don’t think so. Your hus-band was taught to verbal-ly express his appreciation when something is done for him. He takes nothing for granted. And that is an admirable trait, not some-thing to complain about. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Avoid anyone mak-ing unrealistic promises. Protect personal informa-tion and keep your emo-tions under control. Get out with old friends, or attend a reunion that will bring back memories. Your love life will take an inter-esting turn. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Invest in something you enjoy. Expand your interests by offering your services for a fee. Working from home will help you stay focused. Greater responsibility and stability can be accomplished. Walk away from anyone who treats you unfairly. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let friends or rel-atives hinder your produc-tivity. Put the jobs that help pay the bills first. Someone you work with will try to make you look bad. Make sure you do what’s expect-ed of you in order to avoid criticism. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let anyone stand in your way or upset you, disrupting your plans. Make your thoughts known so you can move on without feeling guilty. Don’t believe everything you are told, especially if it’s someone promising the impossible. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Expect to meet with delays or setbacks if you have to deal with government agencies or institutions. Taking care of an older rel-ative or domestic problem should be done quickly, before you jeopardize your position or your reputation. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Set the stage so you can show off your capabili-ties. You may face compe-tition, but if you remain steady and precise, rely on past experience and call in favors, you will overcome any challenge you face. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make a move if it will resolve an issue. Offer your services and refuse to let anyone stand in your way or take over. Do what-ever it takes to be and do your best. A self-improve-ment project will boost your confidence. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have a chance to learn something valuable. Watch what others do and say. Don’t waffle when it comes to discarding things you no longer need. Focus on new ventures and pur-chases. Fixing up your home will improve your productivity. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Initiate changes at home that will make you feel more comfortable or that will enhance a rela-tionship that contributes to your happiness. Don’t donate to a cause you know little about. Charity begins at home. Focus on family relationships. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Travel to visit someone you miss, who needs your help or who has something to offer you. Open up about the way you feel and how you want to see a partnership take shape. Don’t let a last-minute change of plans upset you. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Weigh your options and consider how you can make the most of your time. A job offer may limit time with friends and family. Assess whether you can make as much working for yourself or from home. Love is high-lighted. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Someone close to you may not be revealing important information required for you to make a good decision. Ask ques-tions, and don’t give in or give up until you get the answers you need to move forward. Anger won’t solve problems. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

The Heat won 104-98. Heats cavalry rides to LeBrons rescue in time By JIM LITKE Associated Press History is rarely this neat. Weve been browbeating LeBron James for nearly two years, but a few min utes at the end of Game 4 was all it took to prove he knew what he was doing all along. All those Cavs teams that James single-handedly carried into the playoffs couldnt win enough games with him playing his abso lute best. And none of them likely would have won the one the Heat did Tuesday night 104-98 against a tal ented young Oklahoma City squad with James stuck on the sideline fighting a cramp. Yet thats exactly why James fled Cleveland: so he wouldnt have to do all the heavy lifting himself. He was effectively done with nearly 3 minutes left, after breaking a tie with one final cold-blooded 3-point er. He had 26 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds at the time. But unlike in Cleveland, once it became clear somebody else had to lead Miami the rest of the way, there was no shortage of high-priced reinforcements. Dwyane Wade stepping up was no surprise; Mario Chalmers doing the same was only a mild one. He actually thinks hes the best player on this team and thats a gift and a curse, Wade said about Chalmers, who scored 12 of his 25 points in the final quarter. But tonight it was a gift for us because he never gets down on himself, he always believes, Find me, I can make a shot. I can make a play. He was huge for us. James admission that he needed more help than he was getting in Cleveland, that he was willing to fol low on occasion instead of leading all the time, invited most of the derision. James might have modeled him self after Michael Jordan, but The Decision made him seem more like Scottie Pippen, another prince who wound up in possession of a fistful of rings yet was never really cut out to be king. Real kings like Jordan and Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant did and even Tim Duncan dug in their heels and made lesser stars come to them. To his credit, James ego was compact enough to be transported inside a suitcase. Yet Jordan needed Pippen, and John Paxson and Steve Kerr on occasion, to bail him out, too, the way Shane Battier did for James in the first three games of the series and Chalmers did in Game 5. BCS commissioners back to work on playoff plan By RALPH D. RUSSO Associated Press CHICAGO Mike Slive of the Southeastern Conference wants to come away from the latest BCS meetings with his fellow commissioners ready to pitch a four-team playoff to the university presidents. The leaders of the 11 other major college football leagues and Notre Dames athletic director were back in Chicago on Wednesday for another round of talks about creating two nation al semifinals that would lead to a title game. This is the sixth formal meet ing this year on the future of the Bowl Championship Series, and the second in Chicago in about a week. I expect well continue to make good progress on the four-team play off, Slive said before the meeting started. Wed like to get as far as we need to get to make a comprehensive presenta tion to our presidents next week. Slive told reporters the commissioners dont need to complete every detail of a plan for a new postseason before they break up today, echoing what Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany told reporters earlier. My hope is that we come out with a consen sus on a four-team playoff model and what it looks like, Slive said. The BCS Presidential Oversight Committee meets Tuesday in Washington, but Delany said that, too, is unlikely to be the final stage in this process. I expect direction from the presidents rather than closure, Delany said. Some talk of a so-called plus-one has crept back into the conversations about the future of col lege footballs postseason since the April meetings in Florida, when for the first time the commission ers all acknowledged that a four-team playoff was the way they were headed. The plus-one is different from the current system in that the championship game matchup is set after the major bowl games are played. But there are no semifinals, so its not a four-team playoff, some thing Slive has wanted for years. Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott mentioned in May the plus-one was still an option, and the Big Ten presidents said they preferred it over a play off. Ultimately, though, it appears that was more pos turing and positioning than anything else. The goal of these meetings is to work through the details of a playoff plan: where and when the games will be played and how the teams will be selected. The commissioners have been focusing on ways to keep the major bowls involved as sites for the semifinals, either on a rotating basis or by linking conferences to bowls. There has also been debate over how teams are selected, with Slive sup porting a process that sim ply takes the four highest ranked teams in the nation, regardless of conference, and others leaning more toward emphasizing con ference champions. Delany said hes for a hybrid that would allow a team that doesnt win its conference to make the playoffs, but could use a league title as a tiebreaker of sorts to separate closely ranked teams. Im not so sure that the differences in our views are as significant as some people may have written, Slive said.
