By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comBessie Whitfield will not serve a third year as principal of Richardson Middle School. Whitfield, who like other school administrators was under a one-year contract, was not reappoint-ed to the position for the 2012-13 school year, said Michael Millikin, Columbia County School District superintendent. He declined to give specific reasons for not rehiring Whitfield. Millikin said he believes “personnel decisions should not be aired in public.” However, Millikin did confirm Saturday that the district is inves-tigating Richardson’s use of com-pensatory time, which is time off with pay for overtime work, com-monly known as comp time. “The district has an ongoing investigation regarding comp time at Richardson,” Millikin said. Because the investigation is ongo-ing, Millikin said he could not com-ment. Millikin said it is the superintendent’s prerogative to reappoint school leaders for another year or not, and would not say if the inves-tigation is linked to the decision not to rehire Whitfield. “There is always a variety of factors that play into that decision,” he said. The district’s 14 other principals have been reappointed as administrators. Approving the reappoint-ment list is on the school board’s June 26 agenda. Whitfield resigned from the position after she was not reappointed, he said. Millikin said it was reported through personnel staff that Whitfield is exploring the option to retire, but he has not confirmed that. Whitfield served as Richardson’s principal for two years. An educa-tor for more than 30 years, she also served as principal at Fort White Middle School and the Challenge Learning Center. In recent weeks, however, apparent tensions within the community prompted local leaders to reach out to Whitfield. On May 23, the Columbia County Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People sent Whitfield a letter ask-ing for a meeting to discuss issues dividing the community. “At the Columbia County NAACP Board meeting, May 21, 2012, the Executive Committee expressed concerns over innuen-does, rumors, personnel issues, a lack of leadership, reported dis-harmony and a lack of togetherness at Richardson Middle School. The African American community appears to be divided and disturbed over these issues. You realize that these issues if true could lead to an exodus from Richardson Middle School,” the letter said. “Kindly be aware that we are willing to assist you and the district wherever and whenever we can,” said the letter, signed by John F. Mayo, president and CEO of the local NAACP. The board asked for a meeting “in an attempt to ease tensions CALL US:(386) 752-1293SUBSCRIBE TOTHE REPORTER:Voice: 755-5445Fax: 752-9400 Opinion ................ 4ABusiness ................ 5AObituaries .............. 6A Advice & Comics ......... 8B Puzzles ................. 2B TODAY IN PEOPLE Rubio on immigration.

BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comAn investigative report obtained by the Lake City Reporter details claims by the Lake City Police Department that former Captain Robert Smith was untruthful in dealings with the department. The claims resulted in an internal affairs investiga-tion that ended when Smith refused to make himself available for further ques-tioning and was fired. Smith said the investigation could not continue past 45 days under LCPD rules, despite its having been extended by Chief Argatha Gilmore. Smith had previously lodged a claim of racial discrimination against the department. He has since filed a law-suit alleging racial bias and wrongful termination. According to LCPD, Smith was untruthful when he failed to disclose claims that he exposed himself to a prostitute when employed as a police officer in Portsmouth, Va. before coming to Lake City. It was also alleged that he was untruthful when he said he did not know why he had been subpoenaed to testify in the racial discrimination lawsuit against LCPD by another former captain, Rudolph Davis. PROSTITUTE FILES COMPLAINTAccording to Sgt. Andy Miles of LCPD, Gilmore SmithLCPD’s claims of untruthfulness come to light Ex-capt. Robert Smith failed to disclose allegations by Va. prostitute, says Chief Gilmore. Whitfield out at RMS No reason given, but comp-time probe underway at school. By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comCEDAR KEY-The Suwannee River Water Management District is working with state and local agencies to address saltwa-ter intrusion on Cedar Key’s water supply. The Cedar Key Water and Sewer District officials announced Tuesday that due to the drought and low groundwa-ter levels, residents should not drink the city’s tap water as it tested almost three times the allowable limit for sodi-um. “Cedar Key is a very special coastal community, and we recognize the urgency to help them remedy this problem as quickly as pos-sible,” said Ann Shortelle, district executive director. The District is working in cooperation with Cedar Key, Levy County, and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to identify the possible rea-sons for recent saltwater intrusion at the commu-nity’s wellfield, which has rendered the water unsuit-able for comsumption. At the same time, the water management district is providing assistance to help develop both short-term and long-term strate-gies to deal with the situ-ation. In the short-term, the district has coordinated with Levy County Emergency Management to provide bottled water for drinking. It also is working with the water and sewer district to identify possible tempo-rary treatment options that would allow the system to get back on line. In the search for longterm, sustainable solutions, the district is providing technical assistance, includ-ing help with assessing potential locations for new wells, and is evaluating potentially available nearby wells for temporary supply to the water treatment facil-ity.

PRINCIPAL continued on 3A By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comReady to enter his 10th term as a school board member, Columbia County resident Keith Hudson holds a state record. Hudson is the longest currently serving school board member in the state with 36 years of service, according to the Florida School Boards Association. At 26 years old, Hudson ran for -and won -a seat on the school board in 1976. This fall he is running unopposed for another four years as the District 4 rep-resentative. The record for the longest time on a school board in state history is 46 years, held by a Jackson County man who was 90 years old when he retired, said Dr. Wayne Blanton, executive direc-tor of the Florida School Boards Association. A lifelong county resident, Hudson attended Melrose Park Elementary and graduated from Columbia High. Hudson said he has served as a way to give back to the school system that was good to him while growing up. Hudson said his teachers were genuinely concerned with stu-dents. “I was so grateful for that,” he said. “I wanted to be part of that system and contribute at an administrative level,” he said. Some of today’s challenges are similar to those the school board faced 40 years ago, he said. Maintaining facilities and managing tight budgets are issues the district has faced in the past and continues to face today, he said. “It’s a juggling act,” he said of the budget, “You can only cut so much.” During Hudson’s time on the board the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test was introduced into schools and revised by the state. Hudson said the test pro-vides accountability for admin-istrators, teachers and students. “I believe in accountability,” he said. However, Hudson said he doesn’t agree with all aspects of the high-stakes test, like the stress students may feel. “I want them to enjoy their childhood,” he said.

Isaiah 40:31 NIV BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. Two people have been found dead in what investigators believe was a murdersuicide at the Beverly Hilton, just hours before the Daytime Emmy Awards are being held at the posh hotel, police said Saturday. Police responding to a report of a shooting late Friday found a man and a woman dead from gunshot wounds in a hotel room, Beverly Hills police Lt. Mark Rosen said. Police would give no other details on the two people, their relationship, or the circumstances of the shoot ing. Police would not comment on whether the deaths were connected to the Emmy awards. Coroners officials had yet to begin their investigation, but said they were a man in his late 60s and a woman in her mid-50s. The luxury hotel was also the site of Whitney Houstons death in February. The singer drowned in the bathtub of her fourth-floor room, just a few hours before she was to attend record executive Clive Davis annual pre-Grammy party in the ballroom downstairs. An HLN spokeswoman, Alison Rudnick, said the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will go on as scheduled. The cable news channel will be broadcasting live the cere mony, which honors the best in soap operas and talk shows. The hotel also hosts several other annual galas, including the Golden Globe Awards. State cites NYC club that was site of brawl NEW YORK State officials say the New York City nightclub that was the site of a bottle-hurling brawl following a dispute between the entourages of singers Drake and Chris Brown could lose its liquor license. The New York Post reports that the State Liquor Authority filed 14 charges Friday against the W.i.P. nightclub. The agency says the club has been cited for numerous fights, exces sive noise and using unlicensed or unprofessional guards, including one accused of selling marijuana to an undercover investigator. Liquor Authority spokesman William Crowley says the club is in danger of having its license yanked. Club representatives were unavail able for comment. The club earned notoriety earlier this month, when Brown and Drake were involved in a fight that involved patrons hurling bottles of liquor. Jenner back at trials, complete with crew EUGENE, Ore. Bruce Jenner was back on the track and the cam eras following him all around. It was just like old times. Only, the cameras were interested in Jenner the reality TV star, not Jenner the former decathlon star. His two worlds collided Friday night at the U.S. Olympic trials when he arrived at Hayward Field for the first time in three decades. He was an instant hit with the crowd. Then again, he always has been and now a new audience is paying attention as well. Although Jenner set world records, won at the 1976 Montreal Olympics and graced the front of a Wheaties box, these days hes best known for his role in the TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The reality series focuses on the per sonal lives of Jenners family, which includes the celebrity Kardashian sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe. Jenner was at trials as part of a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the modern decathlon, when Jim Thorpe won the 10-event discipline in 1912. Also on hand were Rafer Johnson (1960 gold medalist) along with Dan OBrien and Dave Johnson of the famed Dan and Dave promo tion by Reebok. But Jenner stole the show. The last time he was in Eugene was before the Olympic trials, just trying to secure his spot on the U.S. team. He ended up setting a world record. My entire family, 65 people, had already bought tickets to Montreal, Jenner said. They planned their vacation to go to Montreal, got their RVs and were picking up little Jenners along the way. But nobody bought me a ticket. I had to come to Eugene and earn my ticket, just to ensure that I was able to visit my family in Montreal. These days, Jenner is relishing his new fame. Having a camera constantly trailing him has become almost natural. So much so that when he got sepa rated from his film crew, he actually talked to them on the phone just to let them know where he was. When I won in 1976, it was very inspirational to a lot of people, but it was also my generation, the baby boomer generation, he said. With our show, Keeping up, its funny, because its a totally different audi ence who know me for a totally dif ferent reason. Ive had a lot of fun doing the show. On the day Jenner & Co. were honored, they were treated to quite a show by rising star Ashton Eaton, who was ahead of a world-record pace for two events. His shot put throw slowed him down. I dont follow the decathlon that closely, Jenner acknowledged. Im kind of on the outside and look in to see whats going on. He does keep in touch with 2008 Olympic gold medalist Bryan Clay, who recently came over to the Jenner house for dinner. No doubt, that will be on an upcoming episode. Recently, Jenner, Muhammad Ali and Mary Lou Retton appeared on new Wheaties boxes featuring retro images of the Olympic champions. Its amazing, Jenner said of being on a cereal box again. LAKE BUENA VISTA Republican Sen. Marco Rubio scolded politicians from both parties Friday for using illegal immigration as a political tool rather than finding compromise on a difficult, divisive issue. He accused both sides of not being will ing to make serious attempts to solve the issue because its easier to raise money and win votes if left unsolved. I have seen people take the legitimate concerns about illegal immigration and turn it into panic, and turn that panic into fear and anger and turn that anger into votes and money. I have also seen people go in the other direction. Anyone who disagrees with their ideas on illegal immigration is anti-immigrant and antiHispanic. Thats ridiculous, Rubio said at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials annual confer ence. As an example, Rubio mentioned his own efforts to seek support for a proposal that would allow young illegal immigrants to remain in the country under certain conditions. It was Rubios attempt to find a compromise on the DREAM Act, formally the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act. Earlier this month, President Barack Obama said his administration will not deport young illegal immigrants the same people that would have been helped under the Rubio proposal. But Rubio said when he first proposed his idea, Democrats immediately dis missed it. I was accused of supporting a DREAM Act without a dream. Of course, a few months later the president takes a similar idea and implements it through execu tive action and now its the greatest idea in the world. I dont care who gets the credit I dont but it exposes the fact that this issue is all about politics to some people. Not just Democrats, Republicans too, Rubio said. He said the only way the issue will be resolved is if both sides admit its com plicated and look at it as a human, rather than political, issue. Yes, it is a law and order issue, but its also a human issue. These are real peo ple. These are human beings who have children and hopes and dreams. These are people that are doing what virtually any of us would do if our children were hungry, if their countries were danger ous, if they had no hope for their future, Rubio said. That perspectives lost. As long as this issue of immigration is a political pingpong that each side uses to win elections and influence votes, Im telling you it wont get solved, Rubio added. There are too many people who have concluded that this issue unresolved is more powerful. They want it to stay unresolved. Rubio said he was resisting the urge to criticize Obama, who was scheduled to speak to the Latino officials two hours later. I was tempted to come here today and rip open the policies of the administra tion, Rubio said. But thats not the direc tion I want to go with my speech, because if I did, if thats what I came here to talk to you about, then I would be doing the exact same thing I just criticized. Rubio also criticized the media for reporting on immigration with an eye on who reaps the benefits from immigration policy rather than from the human per spective. All they want to talk about is, Well, what does this mean for the election? What does this mean politically? Wasnt this a brilliant political tactic? Rubio said. I wasnt looking for a talking point. I wasnt looking to influence the election in November. I was looking to help these kids that Ive I met ... who came here when they were 5, who didnt even know that they were undocumented until they applied to go to college. Python cook-off to raise awareness about ecology MIAMI Python, wild boar and lion fish will be on the menu this weekend in Miami. Three local chefs will participate Saturday night in a cook-off competition using the invasive species as key ingredi ents. The goal is to raise awareness about how the animals impact South Floridas ecology and perhaps even generate an appetite for them. Haven Gastro-Lounge executive chef Todd Erickson will be cooking braised python. He told the Miami Herald the event will show how these animals can be a viable food source. The other chefs cooking to be named the Best Invasivore Chef are: Bradley Herron of Michaels Genuine Food & Drink and Timon Balloo of Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill. Funeral service held for FL trooper slain in Haiti MIAMI A Florida Highway Patrol trooper killed in Haiti is being remem bered as a provider for his family and the community. Dozens of Florida Highway Patrol troopers gathered Saturday with the fam ily of Jean Barthelus for a funeral service in Miami. Barthelus was shot and killed June 8 in Port-au-Prince where he was visiting his ailing wife. Officials say two men flagged him down and opened fire on his car. The 47-year-old Barthelus was an eight-year veteran of the highway patrol. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., speaks at the NALEO (National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials) conference Friday in Lake Buena Vista. ASSOCIATED PRESS

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JUNE 24, 2012 3A3ASmith was accused of exposing himself to a pros-titute and making lewd comments while serving as an officer at Portsmouth P.D. The woman and Smith were given polygraph tests following her complaint. The woman was found to show no deception, while Smith’s test showed indica-tions of deception, accord-ing to the investigative report. The accusation was said to be unsubstantiated. In the report, Smith says a polygraph test alone can-not result in a disciplin-ary action against a law enforcement officer. Smith claimed that he requested the polygraph himself after being ques-tioned about the alleged incident. The woman who made the complaint was a heroin addict who worked as a prostitute in the area he frequently patrolled, Smith said. “She would constantly pick up the telephone and dial 911, back then there were pay phones, and com-plain that she was being harassed by the police-man,” Smith told investiga-tors. “She was complain-ing on me. I suggested, my suggestion to Sergeant Huntington was if in fact I had the nerve to expose myself in a police car in full uniform, especially to this person, if she is going to pick up the phone and com-plain on me because I’m not letting her do her job, she most certainly will pick up the phone and complain on me if I did something like that.” Investigators were also told of another inci-dent from Smith’s time at Portsmouth P.D. Smith was suspected of using “personal prejudice” while on duty by spreading information concerning husband and wife conve-nience store owners who had a website displaying nude pictures of them-selves. “He was accused of talking with other employees, spreading this informa-tion of the 7-11, which caused them to suffer,” Miles told Investigator Lt. Tim Hayes of Gainesville Police Department during an investigative interview. The probe was conducted by GPD at the request of LCPD. Smith admitted that the evidence of him sharing the website was substanti-ated, the report said. He was suspended for 10 days by the police department. Following the suspension, Smith filed a civil suit claiming the 10-day suspen-sion was excessive. Smith received pay for his days suspended as well as two additional paychecks for a total of $3,000. THE DAVIS CASEThe second allegation of untruthfulness centers on the pending court case of another former LCPD captain. Gilmore filed a complaint against Smith concerning his response of “I don’t know” when asked why he was subpoenaed for for-mer LCPD Capt. Rudolph Davis’s civil suit, in which Davis claimed he was dis-criminated against by a pre-vious LCPD chief. However, Smith said he honestly did not know what he would be questioned about. “When Chief Gilmore asked me why I received a subpoena, in my mind that question means to me, translated, what are you going to testify about?” Smith said. “I told her I didn’t know and I honestly didn’t know.” Prior to Gilmore’s complaint, Smith claimed that Gilmore was discriminating against him. He claimed that Captain John Blanchard, a white officer who worked at the same level as Smith, received more favorable treatment from the chief. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission did not find evi-dence of discrimination but authorized him to file suit. “I categorically deny any discrimination against Robert Smith,” Gilmore said. BACKGROUND CHECKAt issue for LCPD in the Portsmouth incidents was whether Smith should have volunteered that informa-tion when asked by Gilmore whether there was anything in his background that would embarrass the department. Smith told GPD Investigator Hayes that he expected Gilmore to have conducted a thorough investigation of his back-ground due to her experi-ence and expertise. “I had nothing to hide,” Smith said. “If I had some-thing to hide, then I cer-tainly would have tried to omit something if I was wanting to be deceptive. I didn’t do that. But when I was there for her and it’s my understanding she had ample opportunity, not only from me, but from her own self, to find that infor-mation out, whatever she needed to know. I mean, we’re talking about not what I would consider your average policeman. We’re talking about a well edu-cated chief, a chief with over 25 years of service at a large agency. A chief who has not only worked through various bureaus, but she was the command-er of the Internal Affairs for the Tallahassee Police Department. There is no way, unless you are com-pletely incompetent, that you would have that much credibility, credentials and experience and hire some-body, not knowing their background.” Gilmore said she conducted a background check but did not travel to Virginia to obtain information from Smith’s former employer prior to hiring him. When asked why she did not seek out this informa-tion, Gilmore said, “In hind-sight, I should have.” Gilmore said it is very difficult to obtain records from Virginia. “Florida has a very liberal public records law,” Gilmore said. “Everybody pretty much has access. In Virginia, it is not the case. It is very difficult to get infor-mation from another entity.” When asked by Hayes if he would have recom-mended Smith had he seen Smith’s complete file from Portsmouth, Miles respond-ed, “It would not have been a favorable evaluation.” Concerning the Portsmouth incidents, the GPD report concluded: “There are not any questions regarding [Smith’s] past dis-ciplinary history that would require the applicant to list the contested background information and as such it is difficult to classify this as a lie through omission.” The report continues, “The evaluations of Captain Smith from the Portsmouth Police Department do not raise any red flags. The trend in these evaluations is of an employee who is strong operationally but sometimes needs work on interpersonal skills.” In the GPD report Smith said Gilmore told him that a member of the city council, Jake Hill, had sought more information on his back-ground and that of then-Capt. John Blanchard. When questioned by the Reporter Hill denied having ever asked for Smith’s personnel files. Gilmore said she had told Smith that Hill was inquir-ing about his background. Gilmore said she was respon-sible for requesting the infor-mation from Virginia. Smith told Hayes that he believed Gilmore called for the investigation because she was upset that he was subpoenaed for Davis’ trial and later gave a deposition. He called it “a very mali-cious vindictive act of retaliation.” As for the Davis subpoena, the report concludes: “Captain Smith’s defense is that he cannot see into the mind of Ms. Mattox [Davis’ attorney] and as such, he might infer what she would ask, but he does not ‘know.’ The semantic and contex-tual meanings in the ques-tions asked and answered in this investigation are left to Lake City legal staff and the decision maker (Chief Gilmore)....” Gilmore said Smith’s claims are now a matter for the courts. “I’ve got to let our justice system look at both sides of the issue,” she said. and heal our community,” according to the letter. It is not known if the meeting was held. When contact-ed Saturday, Mayo declined comment. All administrators and teachers undergo an annual evaluation, the results of which are not made public until one year later, Millikin said. All school administra-tors have one year contracts, which end June 30, he said. Alex Carswell Jr., assistant superintendent for school operations, budget-ing and secondary educa-tion, will serve as principal in the interim, Millikin said. “A final leadership decision will be made before school starts,” he said. Richardson Middle has been a “C” school since 2001-02, according to the state Department of Education. School grades have not been released for 2011-12. The district’s other middle school, Lake City Middle, has been an “A” school since 2007-08. Whitfield was not immediately available for com-ment.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Q Scripps Howard News Service OPINION Sunday, June 24, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AEDITS urprise, surprise. The deeply divided Senate reached bipartisan agreement on a mas-sive new, nearly $1 trillion farm bill, passing it Thursday by a comfortable 64-35 vote. That prompted normally dour Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell to call the new farm bill “one of the finest moments in the Senate in recent times in terms of how you pass a bill.” That is rather low praise when you think about it because pass-ing these bills is what Congress is supposed to do. The tip-off was perhaps his use of the phrase “recent times,” times of acrimony, intransigence and hyper-partisan-ship. It didn’t hurt that the bill was forcefully backed on both sides of the aisle by the farm lobby, one of Washington’s most powerful, and it contained a huge food stamp component that appeals to urban lawmakers. It doesn’t diminish the success of the Senate in passing a bill, even one with many flaws, to point out that the lawmakers have known they had to do this since 2008, Considered one of Washington’s more wasteful pro-grams, it has withstood numer-ous challenges including a veto by President George W. Bush; 82 senators voted against him. The bill, its backers say, will save $23 billion over 10 years, a pittance compared to the deficit but at least it’s a start. By far, the largest part of the farm bill is $768 billion over 10 years for food stamps, a pro-gram on which spending has doubled in the past five years and the number of beneficiaries grown by 70 percent to 45 mil-lion. The House begins work in July on its own version of the farm bill, where some members will balk at the cost of food stamps and others will have to reconcile the difference in subsidy mechanisms between Midwestern corn and soybean farmers and Southern peanut and rice growers. If the “rue or ruin” caucus in the House prevails and there is no farm bill passed by the end of the year, The Wall Street Journal says some farm policies will automatically revert to laws passed in the ‘30s and ‘40. The Tea Party would then be able to unfurl a new slogan, “Leading the nation backward since 2008.” E ducation is one area where blacks realize they need freedom from government control. The chronic failure of public schools to notably improve dis-mal test scores and high dropout rates of black children has made it clear to many black citizens of good will that there has got to be a better way. Polls show black support for school choice. For example, in a poll done last year in New Jersey by The Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling at Rutgers University, 54 percent of blacks expressed support for school vouchers compared to 36 percent of whites. Growing grass roots support among blacks for education alternatives surely influenced the Obama administration’s agree-ment, this past week, to keep the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program. The administration opposes the program and would have been perfectly happy to see its funding spigot turned off. This is a modest program, with federal funds available now for 1,615 scholarships for kids in D.C.’s public schools to attend private schools. Its existence and potential for growth was at stake, with House Speaker John Boehner and Sen. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., carrying the ball for it. The new agreement will allow it to continue, with a small provision for 85 new schol-arships. This makes even more perplexing several incidents where Republican state legislators have turned their backs on the educa-tion hopes of blacks. Republicans in Pennsylvania can change the political land-scape of their state by helping black aspirations for education freedom. But in a state that some analysts see as conceivably swinging into the Republican col-umn, Republicans are blowing it. The Pennsylvania state Senate passed a bill last year that would make vouchers available to kids in the worst 5 percent of public schools. The public schools serving black kids in cities like Philadelphia are disasters. I know from my own survey of pastors in local churches there that hopes for this voucher initiative have been high. Yet, by all indications it’s not going to happen. The state House, controlled by Republicans, has been sitting on the bill. With no action before the end of the session on June 30, it will be dead. There is talk of an alternative scholarship bill financed through tax credits. But the most optimis-tic estimate I have heard is that the scholarship would be worth less than half what the voucher would pay and therefore insuffi-cient on its own to pay full tuition in a private church school. Courageous leadership by Republicans could have cap-tured black hearts and minds in Pennsylvania’s cities that might have paved a path to a new black relationship with Republicans. But sadly, fear of union power rather than leadership and cour-age seems to be motivating these legislators. In 2010, a similar disappointment occurred in Illinois. In a genuine breakthrough, a black Democrat in the Illinois state Senate, Rev. James Meeks, who is also the pastor of Chicago’s largest Baptist con-gregation, introduced a school voucher bill. The bill passed the Illinois Senate and then died in the state House, with only 25 of 48 Republicans supporting it. It fell 12 votes short of the 60 needed to pass. This is not an across the board indictment of Republicans. Two Republican governors -Mitch Daniels in Indiana and Bobby Jindal in Louisiana --have spear-headed passage of school vouch-er programs in their states. In a new Gallup poll, only 29 percent, an all time low, express “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in our public schools. The Republican Party is supposed to be the party of free-dom and limited government. Nowhere are these principles more needed than in education, and no community needs it more than blacks. At a time when our country and our poor communities are hurting so badly, any failure of leadership by those in the party of Lincoln is inexcusable.Q Star Parker is president of CURE, Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education (www.urbancure.org) and author of three books. T he last thing a sick person wants to hear is that ample supplies of a life-sav-ing medicine have been replaced by a surplus of red tape. That’s precisely what’s happening nationwide, with 82 percent of hospitals reporting shortages so severe that treatment must be put on hold, according to the American Hospital Association. Since 2010, 210 drugs, many of them critical components of cancer treatment and anesthe-sia, have been at dangerously low stock levels. On June 15, the House Oversight committee issued a report implicating the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and a badly drafted law for the current state of affairs. Many of the hard-to-find drugs are now off-patent, produced as generics with very narrow profit margins. The Medicare Modernization Act changed the way manufacturers were reim-bursed for older generic drugs, particularly when administered in a nonhospital setting. The price of three chemotherapy drugs, as the report details, fell 90 percent in the first year they went off-patent. The price drops were steep enough that manufacturers began to give up. In a free market, the price for the drugs would rise until supply could meet demand. In true bureaucratic fashion, the FDA is tackling the crisis it created by expanding its Office of Drug Shortage. The idea is to get information ahead of time about which drugs will be in short supply. This leaves in place the root cause of the problem: govern-ment intervention in the mar-ket. The supply of generics will not grow, and the concen-tration of the market will not decrease unless the produc-tion of these drugs becomes more profitable. That requires lifting the government-imposed cap on prices. There are enough big players on the other side, in the form of the group purchasing organiza-tion, to keep prices in check. The FDA needs to step back and try to do no further harm. T hey could not understand the essential balance there must always be in large affairs between cynicism and sus-picion on the one hand and faith and trust on the other. A successful politician must, inescapably, be something of a hypocrite, promising all to all, knowing that, if elected, he must inevitably sacrifice the interests of some for oth-ers. But a man in government must know when to choose trust and faith over political need. If exposure of his acts threatens to contradict his words, he must renounce his acts and keep his word because the people must trust his words at whatever cost or he cannot govern. In the presidency, where the words are the words of a High Priest, it is essential to recog-nize the moment for truth. That moment came first for [President] Richard Nixon on June 20, 1972, when he and [White House Chief of Staff H.R.] Haldeman discussed the lawless break-in at Watergate during the previous weekend. The lost clue in the detective-story “whodunit” still remains the deliberate erasure of 18-and-a-half minutes of that morning’s conversation. Did they recognize the difference between what the partisan pol-itics of the campaign required and what the responsibility of the presidency required? Did they measure the extent of their gamble? The two top men of the administration must at least have exchanged surmises as to how the break-in came about and what they should do about it. By June 23, three days later, came a clear act of obstruction of justice the attempt to use the CIA to halt the FBI’s investi-gation of the crime. Straining as hard as imagination per-mitted, and if one drew on no other evidence, one could persuade one’s self from the transcript of the conversation that here were two malicious politicians simply playing dirty tricks without any aware-ness of what government is supposed to mean. … By early April of 1973, [the president] could no longer even make himself appear unwitting. In March, he had come under blackmail and had begun to learn all the details of the bungled cover-up. This pained his neat mind, for the cover-up was gro-tesquely mismanaged, hilari-ously inefficient, his white-col-lar managers proving them-selves hideously incompetent at what Mafiosi could do skill-fully. Not only that: By April 1973, the news system had the story in raw outline, by May in detail, and by midsum-mer the Ervin Committee had put face, flesh and voice to the drama in public. Yet Nixon persisted in concealment. And it was his persistence in the cover-up that gave the motor energy to the charges of obstruction of justice, Article I of impeachment. This persistence in the cover-up led to drama of a greater order the search for evidence. And when the evidence, the tapes and the internal White House memo-randa began to unfold, they revealed a more shattering hidden story: that of abuse of power. … If such practices had occurred before, they had occurred secretly. Now they were public. If they were to be accepted publicly and not repudiated, then all future presidents would be free to break the same laws. Star Parkerparker@urbancure.org ANOTHER VIEW Surprise!

From staff reports A Lake City man and teenager who led authorities on a brief foot chase were arrested Thursday morning after a concerned citizen reported seeing the two jumping over the fence of a local furniture store. The suspects face charges in connection with burglarizing two local businesses, authorities said. Jeremy D. Rice, 20, 583 NE Leon St. and Alexander M. Young, 17, 396 NE Martin Luther King Jr. St., were each charged with felony burglary, felony larceny (more than $300), misdemeanor criminal mischief (damage property), and resisting an officer without vio lence in connection with the case. Rice was being held on $27,000 bond while Young was not given a bond due to an outstanding war rant. According to Lake City Police Department reports, around 3:49 a.m. Thursday, officers were dis patched to the vicinity of Furniture Cove, 716 E. Duval St., after an anonymous caller telephoned the police station a minute earlier and said he saw two men jumping the fence, carrying several items and running down Northeast Patterson Street. Officer Larry Thomas respond ed to the area and saw two people matching the suspects descrip tions walking north on Northeast Patterson Street. When he stopped to speak to the two men, both took off running. Thomas exited his patrol vehicle and chased the men on foot, while yelling, Police! Stop running! After a short chase Thomas caught and detained Rice. Rice showed him where he had dropped one of the bags he was carrying which authorities said contained miscel laneous burglary tools, gloves and a pry bar. While searching the area for the second suspect, officer Tammy Cox found a backpack containing food, more burglary tools, a cam era and laptop. The second suspect, Young, was found around 4:30 a.m. inside Rices residence on Leon Street by officers, hiding under a bed. A war rants check revealed that Young had an active warrant for violation of probation on an original charge of possession of burglary tools. Young was arrested due to the warrant. However, authorities reported that both cash and jewel ry were found in Youngs pockets at the time of the arrest. LCPD investigator David Greear responded to the scene and inter viewed both suspects, who report edly admitted to burglarizing Ice Day, 767 NE Duval St., prior to entering Furniture Cove across the street. The owner of Ice Day, Stanford Deese, showed officers pry marks on both the ice machine cash box and the Pepsi machine, though no cash was missing. The owner of Furniture Cove, Kathi Evans, was contacted and came to the scene where she identified al the stolen items and cash as being from her business, reports said. The stolen items from her busi ness that were returned included: Cash, jewelry, tools, a camera and a lap top computer. Rice and Young were arrested and taken to jail. This is an outstanding job by our citizens for contacting the police department and our responding officers for apprehending the sus pects quickly and getting the prop erty back to the owners, LCPD chief Argatha Gilmore said in a prepared statement. This is a great example of our community and the police department working together to keep our city safe.

The watermelons were grown by her son, Jacob Hill, who is a local farmer. ‘I enjoy selling watermelons out here Bumper cropJASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter looking at funding changes and stu-dent population shifts, which have led to overcrowding at some schools, he said. Educating students with diverse needs can be a challenge, he said. Unlike private and charter schools, the district’s job is to teach every stu-dent that comes through school doors. “We can’t pick and choose our clien-tele,” he said. “Teachers only have so much time with students,” he said. Paraprofessionals and other staff working with individ-ual students can get him or her up to speed, he said. All of the district’s staff and faculty play an important role in educating a child, from the bus driver who greets students each morning to the worker who maintains clean, safe buildings, he said. “We’re fortunate in this district. We really do have a good staff who genu-inely cares about children. That’s what it’s all about,” Hudson said. A quality school district is important to the entire community, he said. It attracts new businesses and industries. Also well-educated adults can contrib-ute to their community, he said. Hudson has served the board with six different superintendents, three of which were his former teachers, he said. Institutional knowledge is helpful with new board members and superin-tendents, he said. Hudson represents District 4, which covers the east side of the county to the Santa Fe River, although the major-ity of calls he receives are from outside his district, he said. “People feel I’m approachable with issues they haven’t been able to solve,” he said. Hudson said he has been about to mediate issues that aren’t clearly right or wrong by considering what it best for the child. After more than three decades representing the area, Hudson said, “I know my people.” “I want the system to be approachable and user-friendly,” he said. Parent involvement and volunteers are impor-tant, especially with budget constraints, Hudson said. Hudson owns and operates two local businesses, Keith Hudson Fiberglass and Hudson Discount Marine. Hudson’s two sons graduated from CHS and work in his fiberglass business. He started the fiberglass business in 1978 by repairing boats but it evolved into industrial work. His crews travel across the county and internationally inspecting and replacing fiberglass tanks and pipes, he said. Hudson, however, rarely travels for work. He has missed only three board meetings in the past 36 years, he said. “They elected me to represent them and I’m there,” he said. Hudson said he is thankful his district still has confidence in his abilities and thankful to run for reelection opposed, as campaigning can spread a person thin. “I’m honored to be able to represent District 4, Columbia County and the Columbia County School System,” he said. Hudson said he plans to stay on the board as long as he can contribute, as his passion for the school district isn’t any less than it was when he first started. “It’s truly a passion of mine,” he said. “It’s too much of a passion for me to walk away,” he said.

COURTESY DAYTONA Teens from across Northeast Florida came togeth er today to recognize Daytona International Speedway for its bold move to make the speedways grandstands smoke-free. The teens from 21 surrounding coun ties are part of Students Working against Tobacco (SWAT). They also challenged other sporting and entertainment venues in the state to follow the example set by the speedway and protect more Floridians and visitors from sec ondhand smoke. The SWAT members, along with NASCAR driver Jeffrey Earnhardt, the Volusia County Health Department, and rep resentatives from Daytona International Speedway held a press conference outside of the Gate 8 Grandstand Entrance of the speedway on Tuesday, June 19 at 2 p.m. Im proud that leading race organizations like Daytona are protecting our fans from tobacco smoke and are showing young fans that smoking is no lon ger acceptable, said NASCAR driver and Tobacco Free Florida spokesperson Jeffrey Earnhardt. Families see drivers and venues like Daytona as legendary and this sends a healthy message to race fans. The grandstands of Floridas prestigious and historic sporting venue will officially be smokefree starting with the Subway Jalapeo 250 Powered By CocaCola on Friday night, July 6. Secondhand smoke contains a deadly mix of more than 7,000 chemicals, hundreds of which are toxic and 69 that can cause cancer. Each year, nearly 50,000 non-smoking Americans die from a disease primarily caused from exposure to secondhand smoke. Secondhand smoke is espe cially harmful to children and adults who suffer from asthma as it can trigger a severe attack. In Florida, 1.47 million children and adults are diagnosed with asthma. Smoke-free policies that are being voluntarily adopted by businesses and organi zations across the state are helping to save lives, said Director of the Volusia County Health Department Dr. Bonnie Sorensen. We should never underestimate the dangers of secondhand smoke. Breathing secondhand smoke, even in small amounts or when outside, can be harmful to your health. Aside from protecting race fans and speedway employees from the dangers of secondhand smoke, the smoking ban at the Daytona International Speedway is a monumental step against tobacco in the sport of racing. Stock car racing has a long and storied history with tobacco that includes years of sponsorships and the highly visible use of tobacco by drivers, their racing teams and fans alike. Were honoring Daytona International Speedway for tak ing this important step to pro tect race fans from secondhand smoke, said Kahreem Golden, SWAT Youth Advocacy Board Chair. We also want to encourage other outdoor venues in Florida to protect their patrons by adopt ing tobacco-free and smoke-free policies.

Lake City Reporter SPORTS Sunday, June 24, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Editor754-0421tkirby@lakecityreporter.com %632576 Back on track JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterVince Folston kisses his cross while visiting the Lake City Reporter earlier this week. Folston’s spiritual road leads to Southwestern College By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comV ince Folston is back on the college hoops scene after a layoff of almost three years. The 2007 Columbia High graduate recently signed a basketball scholarship with Southwestern College in Winfield, Kan. Folston, 23, attended St. Johns River College for two years after graduating from CHS. He played basketball for two years, but circumstances caught up with him to the point of considering giving up the sport. “I did not have enough credits to transfer, so I came back home,” Folston said. “My girlfriend got pregnant and I had to leave school. I got a full time night job and was going to school during the day.” Folston made the best of the situation and was blessed with a daughter, Valencia, who is now 1. “That’s my princess,” Folston said. “She is my biggest inspiration and motivation.” He said Valencia’s mom, Sierra Stockton, also “is a big part of my life.” As for his education, Folston went to Florida Gateway College and is taking nine credits this summer, which will give him the 24 credits needed to get back in school. Folston’s interest in basketball was revived after a family tragedy. “For five months, I thought about getting out of basketball,” Folston said. “I was getting ready to go into the Navy. My brother, James Walker, was killed in a shooting incident in Homestead. The day after the funeral I made a promise to him to get back in school and finish my degree.” Walker played football at MidAmerican Nazarene University and his team won an NAIA national championship. Another brother, John Brown, won a NCAA Division II football championship at Pittsburg State University. Like Southwestern, both schools are in Kansas, so Folston said now is his turn to win a national title in the state. The Southwestern Moundbuilders, who play in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference, were 19-11 last year. Q Folston works on his game at Richardson Community Center, where he visits four days a week. “The real ballers come in on Sunday night,” Folston said. “They come all the way from Jacksonville and Live Oak and some have played overseas. It gets real intense and that is what has helped me keep in shape.” Jerad Stockton, a cousin of Sierra, played basketball overseas and worked with Folston. “He was the one getting me ready for the showcases,” Folston said. Folston went to a Seba Spring College Exposure Camp in Atlanta on March 24. He also attended an All-American JUCO Showcase in Orlando on May 12-13. “I was in the top 30 out of 190 players at Sebo, but the showcase in Orlando was the big show,” Folston said. “There were almost 200 coaches there. I have clips on line from that showcase. Thirteen school called me to visit.” Southwestern’s coach Matt O’Brien was one of those inviting, but first Folston went to the University of Rio Grande in Ohio. “It was just too small for me,” Folston said. “They have a nice program, but I didn’t get that feeling I was looking for. I prayed about it.” O’Brien had talked with Folston on Sunday after the showcase and he made FOLSTON continued on 5B Ex-Penn State assistant coach Sandusky guilty of sex abuse ASSOCIATED PRESSJerry Sandusky (left) leaves the Centre County Courthouse Friday after being found guilty in his sexual abuse trial in Bellefonte, Pa. By MARK SCOLFORO and GENARO C. ARMASAssociated PressBELLEFONTE, Pa. — For years, the children Jerry Sandusky had preyed upon kept quiet about what the former Penn State assistant football coach did to them in echoing shower stalls, empty hotel rooms and the muffled confines of his basement bedroom. After a swift trial and less than two days of delib-erations, a jury issued an emphatic verdict late Friday: Sandusky was guilty on 45 counts of sexu-al abuse, meaning the man once considered a succes-sor to coach Joe Paterno will likely die in prison. The verdict is not the end of the scandal that took down Paterno and deeply shook the state’s most prominent university. It will play out for years in court-rooms and through a set of ongoing investigations. But the trial did present one piece of finality: Sandusky was taken away in handcuffs to the county jail. Sentencing will be in about three months, but mandatory minimums will keep him behind bars for life. “One of the recurring themes in this case was, ‘Who would believe a kid?”’ Attorney General Linda Kelly said. “The answer is, we in Bellefonte, Pa., would believe a kid.” Sandusky, a retired Verdict finds defendant guilty on 45 counts. SANDUSKY continued on 3B BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterLake City 15-under All-Star Garrett Finell pitches in a B abe Ruth District 6 game on Thursday. Crash course for future Tigers By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comPlayers are getting an early introduction to the ways of Columbia High baseball this week at the Babe Ruth District 6 tour-nament as Tigers’ head coach J.T. Clark has taken the reigns of the Lake City 15-under All-Stars. It wasn’t an easy decision for Clark as it meant giving up part of his summer, but the head coach knew that it could pay off in the long run on the diamond. “Basically Tad Cervantes called me and asked how I’d like to coach the team,” Clark said. “At first, I told him he could go jump off a bridge. Then I thought about it and knew that most of these guys would be play-ing for me in the future. Now when they step foot into our program, they’ll know what to expect. I’m treating everything like it’s a high school game.” Although the intensity won’t be quite the same as it is for the Tigers, Clark said that it’s valuable time for the players to learn Columbia’s system. “The big thing is that we can coach the basics and they’ll gain an understand-ing of that,” Clark said. “We want to add to their basic knowledge of things like turning double plays with the use of footwork. At this level they can rely a lot on their arm strength, but we want to work on what kind of footwork they need at our level. We are work-ing on stuff like double cuts and relays. Those are things that have stood out in our short time together.” Clark is also working with the players on the style of pitching they’ll see at the high-school level. “The older you get, the better the pitching is going to get,” Clark said. “The big-gest thing is that the pitchers start being able to change speed. So we’re working on Columbia coach J.T. Clark takes over youth team. ALL-STARS continued on 5B

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JUNE 24, 2012 3B%632576defensive coach, showed little emotion as the verdict was read, giving his wife, Dottie, and family members a half-wave as the county sheriff led him away. There were only three acquittals among the charg-es related to 10 victims, eight of whom took the stand to describe fondling, forced oral sex and anal rape. Many of the accus-ers testified that they had told no one of the abuse that dated as far back as the mid-1990s — not par-ents, not girlfriends and not police. The accuser known in court papers as Victim 6, whose mother alerted authorities in 1998 after Sandusky took her son into a shower, broke down in tears upon hearing the verdicts in the courtroom. Afterward, a prosecutor embraced him and said, “Did I ever lie to you?” The man, now 25, testified that Sandusky called himself the “tickle mon-ster” in a shower assault. He declined to comment to a reporter afterward. His mother said: “Nobody wins. We’ve all lost.” One of the three counts for which Sandusky was acquitted concerned Victim 6, an indecent assault charge. The man testified that Sandusky had given him a bear hug in the show-er but at one point he just “blacked out.” The other acquittals were an indecent assault charge related to Victim 5, who said Sandusky fondled him in the shower, and an invol-untary deviate sexual inter-course charge regarding Victim 2, the boy graduate assistant Mike McQueary saw being attacked in a campus shower. That charge resulted in an acquittal because McQueary did not see penetration, juror Joshua Harper told NBC’s “Today” on Saturday. But, Harper said, McQueary made it apparent he saw some-thing “that was wrong and extremely sexual.” Almost immediately after the judge adjourned, loud cheers could be heard from a couple hundred people gathered outside the court-house as word quickly spread that Sandusky had been convicted. The crowd included victim advocates and local residents with their kids. Many held up their smartphones to take pictures as people filtered out of the building. As Sandusky was placed in the cruiser to be taken to jail, someone yelled at him to “rot in hell!” Others hurled insults and he shook his head no in response. Defense attorney Joe Amendola was interrupted by cheers from the crowd on the courthouse steps when he said, “The sen-tence that Jerry will receive will be a life sentence.” In addition to the eight who testified, there were two yet-unidentified vic-tims for whom prosecu-tors relied on testimony from a university janitor and McQueary, whose account of a sexual encoun-ter between Sandusky and a boy of about 10 years old ultimately led to the Paterno’s dismissal and the university president’s ouster. Sandusky did not take the stand in his own defense. After the verdict was announced, defense attor-ney Karl Rominger said it was “a tough case” with a lot of charges and that an appeal was certain. He said the defense team “didn’t exactly have a lot of time to prepare.” The ex-coach had repeatedly denied the allegations, and his defense suggested that his accusers had a financial motive to make up stories, years after the fact. His attorneys also painted Sandusky as the victim of overzealous police inves-tigators who coached the alleged victims into giving accusatory statements. One accuser testified that Sandusky molested him in the locker-room showers and in hotels while trying to ensure his silence with gifts and trips to bowl games. He also said Sandusky had sent him “creepy love letters.” Another spoke of forced oral sex and instances of rape in the basement of Sandusky’s home, includ-ing abuse that left him bleeding. He said he once tried to scream for help, knowing that Sandusky’s wife was upstairs, but fig-ured the basement must be soundproof. Another, a foster child, said Sandusky warned that he would never see his fam-ily again if he ever told any-one what happened. And just hours after the case went to jurors, law-yers for one of Sandusky’s six children, Matt, said he had told authorities that his father abused him. SANDUSKY: Only three acquittals among 48 charges in defense t rial Continued From Page 1B Heat took the tougher road to this titleBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI — A year ago, with an easier path, the Miami Heat fell short of their championship goal. This time, things seemed much tougher to the Heat — which made the reward only that much sweeter. The Heat are the NBA champions, after taking an unlikely, uneasy road to the top of the pro basketball world. They were down against Indiana in the sec-ond round, down and facing elimination against Boston in the Eastern Conference title series, down yet again against Oklahoma City in the NBA Finals. And strange as this would seem, when the Heat looked most vulnerable, it turned out they were at their best. Down 2-1 to Indiana, the Heat won three straight. Down 3-2 to Boston, they won two straight. Down 1-0 to the Thunder, they swept the last four games. “You come together,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “You can either go the other way or come closer together, and you start to build some toughness. Last year’s pain that we went through, even for the new guys, they inherited that pain. We told them that. And you go through those experiences together, and you’re able to survive it, it’s a great teacher and motiva-tor, and I think that helped us in all the tough times this year.” Miami was rolling to the title a year ago, going 12-3 in the East playoffs and playing the role of favorite heading into the finals against the Dallas Mavericks. The Heat won Game 1, were cruising to a win late in Game 2, and then the wheels came off — not only did Miami drop that second game, that started a stretch of four losses in five games to cost them the championship. After that, this year was championship or bust. They didn’t bust.“Last year it wasn’t as hard and we lost the cham-pionship,” Heat guard Dwyane Wade said. “But we knew it was going to be hard to become cham-pions.” There came a point this season when the Heat just knew they were built to last. Wade was dogged by inju-ries at times in the regular season, and the team never had more than even a three-game slide. In the playoffs, Chris Bosh went down in Game 1 against Indiana. The Heat lost Games 2 and 3 without him and trailed in Game 4 before rallying to pull out that series. And against Boston, Miami was in serious trouble, facing a win-or-else Game 6 on the road. LeBron James had 45 points and 15 rebounds that night. The Heat won the game, won the next one to close out the Celtics and then took four of five against the Thunder. James got his long-awaited ring with a Finals MVP perfor-mance, Wade and Udonis Haslem got their second championships, and every other player on the Heat roster got to enjoy celebrat-ing with the Larry O’Brien Trophy for the first time. “The Celtics series, man, that was the most chal-lenging series that I’ve ever played in — and I’ve played against the Detroit Pistons,” Wade said. “It was the very thing we dealt with last year. We had to deal with being again under the microscope against the Boston Celtics, and they got us ready. Our backs were against the wall many times. But I knew, when we went into Boston and won Game 6, at that point right there I knew we could be world champions.” He was right.James, Wade, Bosh and Mario Chalmers exited together with 3:01 left to play Thursday night, Miami by that point well on the way to a title-clinching 121-106 victory over the Thunder. It was much different from Wade’s first title, the one in Dallas where he watched Jason Terry’s 3-pointer to tie the game bounce off the rim and into his hands as the clock ran out. Wade and James had a chat before Game 5, just silly talk about how they would envision the per-fect finish. Wade said he wanted to be on the court for the clincher. James said he would rather be on the bench and celebrating by that point. James’ vision was the way it turned out. For the first time in a while, at least a few minutes seemed easy.

Carolina’s 3rd title in rowBy ERIC OLSONAssociated PressOMAHA, Neb. — South Carolina opens the College World Series finals against Arizona on Sunday night trying to become the first school in 40 years to win three straight national championships. Gamecocks coach Ray Tanner hasn’t announced his starting pitcher. Sophomore right-hander Konner Wade (10-3) will start for Arizona (46-17). Tanner says the Gamecocks (49-18) are pretty good but aren’t the 1927 Yankees. He adds that it’ takes some luck to reach the finals three years in a row. The Gamecocks had to replace five regulars from the team that beat Florida in last year’s finals. The last school to win three titles in a row was Southern California in the 1970s. Arizona this season is batting .330 and averaging seven runs a game.USC, Arizona strange bedfellows at CWSOMAHA, Neb. — South Carolina and Arizona have been staying at the same hotel during the College World Series. That wasn’t a problem when the teams were play-ing in opposite brackets. Now they’re matched in the best-of-three finals. “The Hilton Hotel Battle Royale. That’s the name for it,” South Carolina pitcher Michael Roth said Saturday. “We’ve been see-ing these guys all week. We have tons of respect for each other. The worst part is that someone is going to be celebrating and someone is going to have to hear it. “That’s probably the only down side. And there is no free breakfast.” Gamecocks right fielder Adam Matthews said he ran into a bunch of South Carolina pitchers in an elevator the other day and didn’t think much of it.Sonoma takes over as track where tempers flareBy JENNA FRYERAssociated PressSONOMA, Calif. — It used to be that short tracks were the guaranteed place for the bumping, banging and blown tempers. It’s now shifted to road courses, specifically Sonoma, where more than a few drivers will likely be raging mad by the end of Sunday’s race. “I think this has turned into the most no-holds-barred, crazy, people-run-ning-into-each-other race, more so than any of the short tracks we go to now,” said Sprint Cup Series points leader Matt Kenseth. NASCAR’s last two visits to the winding road course in Northern California wine country have been demoli-tion derbies. Jeff Gordon was the bad guy in 2010, when he tangled on track with at least four drivers in a race he deemed a “disaster — just one of those terrible days where I made a lot of mistakes, no doubt made a lot of people unhappy.” The lasting image from last year’s stop at the 12-turn, 1.99-mile picturesque track was of Tony Stewart’s car backed into and sus-pended high on a wall of tires, where he landed after Brian Vickers intentionally spun him as payback for earlier contact. But tem-pers were flaring all over the garage after the race. Juan Pablo Montoya left mad at Brad Keselowski, Kasey Kahne was angry with Montoya, and Joey Logano’s parting shot for road course ace Robby Gordon was that “he drives like a moron every week.” Denny Hamlin, who said last year he’d been “Dinger’d” after he was involved in a wreck with AJ Allmendinger, said all driver etiquette seems to be out the window when the series shifts to Sonoma. “It just seems like people don’t give each other room like they used to and every-one is just a little bit more aggressive,” Hamlin said. “I think people talk about driver ethics and things like that — this is a very gray race track when it comes to that. I think people can get away with a little bit more, maybe pay some guys back for things that happen at other tracks. “Typically, at this race track, because speeds are so low, the risk of injuring someone is slim to none.” Jamie McMurray, an innocent victim in last year’s Stewart-Vickers clash, had a much sim-pler explanation: “The wrecks are happening from people being idiots,” he said. “You can’t be the guy that’s run 17th all day, and on the last restart expect that you are going to pass six rows of cars in turn seven. That’s what hap-pens here every single year,” McMurray added. “Somebody just does some-thing silly. Most of the time the wrecks here just hap-pen from people losing their mind.” Double-file restarts are likely the overwhelming cause of the problem.

I thought this might be the school for me, Folston said. The gym was real nice. It had a historic feel to it with banners hanging around. I worked out with the coach. He put me through shooting drills with the gun. I took about 150 shots in 30 minutes. I shot 54 percent for my first hundred. I asked to try 50 more and shot 74 percent. Coach said, You have a really nice jumper. I love your shot, I know you can help us. Not only did Folston have a renewed interest in basketball, he experienced a spiritual awakening. He was helped by many family members and friends. I got saved on Jan. 1 and have been living my life for God, Folston said. He has blessed me so much. I have a phrase I say every day as motivation: Without God I am nothing; without God I can become nothing. Folston is a member of Soul Harbor Church of God in Christ, which is pastored by M.L. Goggins. He helped me out of nowhere and thats why I love my church so much, Folston said. They have a new mens choir and I joined it. Folston draws strength from grandparents Phillip and Vestella Jones. They have a major impact, Folston said. I go over with my daughter every Sunday after church and sit with them. She is so wise and he is helping me learn how to pray. Folston also thanked grandparents Mr. Bill and Mrs. Dottie Stone. The are great grandparents and have been a part of my life since I was 9 years old, Folston said. I have always been able to talk to them about anything. Folston said his aunt, Rosa Kinsey, has been a great help to me and he receives wisdom and advice from her husband, Curtis. His aunt, Jennifer Harris, owns Nice & Clean Medical Transport and gave him his first job. Uncle Terrance Jones helped finance most of my stuff. For the past 2 1/2 years, Folston has worked at the Dollar General warehouse in Alachua. His managers and supervisor have tried to accommodate his schooling by offering flexible hours and giving time off to attend the showcases. Folston thanked Dollar General managers Bob Barnes, Alain Arrendel and Lewis Messina, supervisor John Robinson, and co-worker Obadiah Thompson, who helps me with my spiritual walk. Family and faith mean the most to Folston. In addition to his daughter, there is mom Anita Goolsby and her husband, Alfred Goolsby. He also has and older sister, Charamie Folston, and a younger sister, Venesia Folston. Mrs. Goolsby is in poor health. My step-father is great helping take care of my mom, Folston said. That is a strong motivation for me to try and help her out. Folston plans to study philosophy and leadership studies. Without a degree, you cant get a good job, he said. God doesnt give you a second chance that often. When I thought about quitting basketball, I said God gives you skills and it is a sin not to use them.

Its not like the 10-under or 12-under leagues where youre basically hit ting all fastballs. Theres change of speed and also location. And while most of the players are enjoying Clarks approach, hes found that hes grew fond of it as well. I really have enjoyed it, Clark said. At first, like I said, I was dreading it. I think itll help the pro gram grow and thats what its all about. Id love to continue doing it in the future. Growing the Tigers pro gram is the bottom line and these players are get ting a head start. In our short time, we are working on bunt cover age, first and thirds and just knowing our stuff, Clark said. Weve had two weeks to teach that. We want to program into their head what is going on so that the first year when they get there they know what to expect, know me and I dont have to mold them. Clark doesnt get to spend a lot of time with the junior varsity when the regular season starts, so this is a crash course for most of them to become familiar with the Tiger style. And Clark is hop ing that it begins to funnel more players into the pro gram in the future. I think the more people that use the program, the more it will help, Clark said. After this, it would all become refinement. Its not just me coaching this team, but also the younger teams using our ideas. Ive had a few coaches call me and Ive helped out. For these kids, the ultimate goal for baseball in Lake City is to play for the high school an dplay for a state championship. Right now this is the best thing they can do to get on the right track.

BROWN hbrown@lakecityreporter.com After months of meet ing with pediatricians and family physicians in the region, Wolfson Childrens Hospital is bringing a nonprofit Childrens Specialty Center to downtown Lake City. The new 5,355 squrare foot center, located at 164 NW Madison Street, will offer services that reflect the needs determined most crucial for the area. Pediatric specialties at the center include cardiol ogy, hematology/oncology (cancer and blood disor ders), allergy, asthma and urology. Physical, speech and occupational therapies will also be offered. The medical commu nity has kind of put us to a call of action to say, we dont have access to those services and we need it, Wolfsons Regional Outreach Coordinator Kelley Shaw said. Medical faculty for the center will be staffed from the University of Florida College of Medicine in Jacksonville and Nemours Childrens Clinic. According to Shaw, Lake City was chosen for the new center because of its central location. By positioning in the Lake City, the hospital will be able to provide services to children and families in Tallahassee as well, Shaw said. The hospital has already begun accepting patients for June and July. All of the specialties are actively receiving referrals right now, Shaw said. Shaw said the process of locating the hospital to Lake City took about a year. Medical communi ties were interviewed in Columbia County, Suwannee County, Madison County, Thomasville and Tallahassee for the project. We spent a great deal of time working with the regional community, she said. The center will also pro vide a Kids Kare Mobile Intensive Care Unit for emergency transport of children within a 300-mile radius of the hospitals downtown Jacksonville location. The emergency trans port has already success fully transported children from Columbia County for medical treatment. Lake City three-year-old SiMya Ball was transport ed in the unit after expe riencing an accelerated heart rate. She was not eating, had very little energy and was breathing rapidly. Ball was taken to the Childrens Specialty Center in Lake City where she was found to be suffer ing from acute myocardi tis, an inflammation of the heart muscle due to a viral infection. Dr. Ettedgui [the girls pediatrician] said we needed to go to Wolfson Childrens Hospital in Jacksonville that same day, but we didnt have trans portation, Balls mother Sarah Ford said. Ball was transported to Jacksonville via the Kids Kare Mobile Transit Unit where she was adminis tered a cardiac muscle biopsy. After eight days of treat ment and recovery at the hospital, Balls heart func tion returned to normal. Locating our Childrens Specialty Center in Columbia County give us greater ability to reach more children throughout the region, President of Wolfsons Children Hospital Michael D. Aubin said. Many chil dren from this area have already experienced the unique care we provide in Jacksonville and we will now gain improved access in a convenient location closer to home. The center has future plans for specialized care in asthma and allergies, infectious disease, gastro enterology and neurology. The center will serve as a model for future centers to come. This is the first of its kind and there are plans for more centers to be constructed in the near future, Shaw said. COURTESY The Kids Kare Mobile Intensive Care Unit will serve as an emergency transport of children within a 300-mile radius of down town Jacksonville for Wolfson Childrens Specialty Center in Lake City.

Solarization is a non-chemical method of controlling many soil pests such as nema-todes, insects and weeds. Imagine a fall garden with fewer weeds, wilts, root rots, and root nematodes, to name a few. As soon as you’ve harvested your spring garden crop, try this economi-cal and environmentally friendly procedure called Solarization. Cover the garden with clear plastic for 4 to 6 weeks during the summer to intensify the baking effect of the sun’s rays. When the garden is prepared properly and the plastic is fitted closely to the soil, the temperatures can easily soar to 120 degrees or more in the top six inches. Bye-bye bugs and thugs. Prepare the garden by tilling and leveling the soil as you would before planting. Work in your soil amendments such as animal manures and other organic materials. Smooth the soil, providing a slight slope so that water won’t collect on top of the plastic after rain showers. Standing water slows the heating process below the plastic. Thoroughly wet the soil to twelve inches deep just before you lay the plastic. Dig a trench around the area to be covered, tarp with plastic, lay the edges of the plastic in the trench, and fill in the trench with soil. Pull the plastic firmly as you bury the edges so that the plastic fits close to the soil. This keeps in the heat and keeps out the cooling wind. The most effective plastic for solarizing is clear plastic, preferably 1 or 2 mils thick. Thicker tarps may last longer, but not as much energy is transmitted to the soil. Thin plastic, such as painters’ drop cloths, work well. They may only last 5 of 6 weeks so watch for deterioration. Cleaning up hundreds of little pieces of plastic can be a chore. The garden will be ready for planting as soon as the plastic is removed and fewer new weed seeds will be brought to the surface. Now, let the sun cook up a great start to a fall garden.

Nichelle Demorest is a horticulture agent with the Columbia County Extension of the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorestdndemorest@ufl.edu By HOPE YENAssociated PressWASHINGTON — For the first time, the influx of Asians moving to the U.S. has surpassed that of Hispanics, reflecting a slow-down in illegal immigration while American employers increase their demand for high-skilled workers. An expansive study by the Pew Research Center details what it describes as “the rise of Asian-Americans,” a highly diverse and fast-growing group making up roughly 5 percent of the U.S. pop-ulation. Mostly foreign-born and naturalized citizens, their numbers have been boosted by increases in visas granted to specialized work-ers and to wealthy investors as the U.S. economy becomes driven less by manufacturing and more by technology. “Too often the policy debates on immigration fixate on just one part — illegal immigration,” said Karthick Ramakrishnan, a political science professor at the University of California-Riverside and a fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. “U.S. immigration is more diverse and broader than that, with policy that needs to focus also on high-skilled workers.” “With net migration from Mexico now at zero, the role of Asian-Americans has become more important,” he said. About 430,000 Asians, or 36 percent of all new immigrants, arrived in the U.S. in 2010, accord-ing to the latest census data. That’s compared to about 370,000, or 31 percent, who were Hispanic. The Pew analysis, released Tuesday, said the tipping point for Asian immigrants likely occurred during 2009 as illegal immigrants crossing the border from Mexico sharply declined due to increased immigration enforcement and a dwindling supply of low-wage work in the weak U.S. economy. Many Mexicans already in the U.S. have also been heading back to their country, putting recent net migration at a standstill. As recently as 2007, about 390,000 of new immigrants to the U.S. were Asian, compared to 540,000 who were Hispanic. The shift to increased Asian immigration, particularly of people from India, China and South Korea, coincides with changes in U.S. immigration policy dating to the 1990s that began to favor wealthy and educated workers. The policy, still in place but sub-ject to caps that have created waiting lists, fast tracks visas for foreigners willing to invest at least half a million dollars in U.S. busi-nesses or for workers in high-tech and other specialized fields who have at least a bachelor’s degree. International students studying at U.S. colleges and universities also are now most likely to come from Asian countries, roughly 6 in 10, and some of them are able to live and work in the U.S. after graduation. Asian students, both foreign born and U.S. born, earned 45 percent of all engineer-ing Ph.D.s in 2010, as well as 38 percent of doctorates in math and computer sciences and 33 percent of doctorates in the physical sci-ences.

BOXjbox@lakecityreporter.comIt is time for the insects to bother people during their sum-mer activities. People should take precautions so they don’t have to deal with bites from the mosqui-toes, gnats, biting flies, fire ants and ticks that are prominent dur-ing the summer. These insects are around all year long but people are more active outside during the summer. The Department of Health recommends the 5 D’s to protect yourself from the insects: Drain standing water, stay inside from dusk to dawn, dress to minimize exposed skin and use DEET repellents. Even though it is hot, it is best if minimal skin is exposed while outside. This give the insects less skin to choose from. “Mosquitoes are around all year long but they are more active dur-ing rainy weather,” said Nichelle Demorest, UF/IFAS Extension Agent for Columbia County. Columbia County has received rain in the last couple of weeks so it is important that people walk around their house and make sure that there is no standing water. Water can be found in any type of container. Even gutters that may have leaves piled up can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes, according to Demorest. Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in any water holding area. The eggs hatch into larvae. The larvae grow and survive in water. The third stage is pupae. In this stage the mosquito changes shape. It takes three to four days for the wings to unfold and become an adult mosquito. Mosquitoes need water to breed and grow. By destroying their breeding grounds, this will force them to find a new place to go. This will help eliminate some of the mos-quitoes surrounding a home. If a person cannot avoid going outside between dusk and dawn then it is important that they use insect repellent with the active ingredients approved to repel insects. It is also important to know what your repellent’s ingredi-ents are. The active ingredients for insect repellent are DEET, Picaridin and Oil of Lemon-Eucalyptus. Insect repellents affect everyone differently. Some people can have an allergy to DEET but should be able to find repellent with the other approved ingredi-ents. Parents should be aware of how their children react. Children may not be able to use the same kind as the rest of the family. “You should not put Oil of Lemon-Eucalyptus on small chil-dren,” said Demorest. It is recommended that the DEET be 10 percent or less in repellent when used on children, according to UF/IFAS EDIS publications. Demorest warns people away from products containing Citronella because it has a short protection time. Only use insect repellent that has a EPA stamp of approval on the label. They are the ones that have been proven to work. “OFF! Deep Woods contains 24 percent DEET and offers five hours of protection while OFF! Skintastic has 7 percent DEET and lasts only two hours,” said Demorest. “As the DEET percentage decreases, the time of coverage decreases.” It is important that people read the instructions and reapply as directed to ensure protection. High temperature, high humidity and the activities the wearer is engaging in can cause the protection time to decrease, according to UF/IFAS EDIS publications. Mosquitoes can carry diseases but Columbia County does not have a warning out, according to Demorest. “It is a good idea to protect yourself,” said Demorest, even if there is not a warning. Demorest also warns not to be fooled by all of the new gadgets out there that claim to repel bugs. “Repellent works better if it is applied to the skin,” said Demorest.

By OSKAR GARCIA Associated Press HONOLULU Oracle Corp. CEO Larry Ellison is closing in on a purchase even lottery winners can only dream about 98 per cent of Hawaiis pineapple island, Lanai. Ellison hasnt said what he plans to do with the vast majority of the islands 141 square miles, but the sellers said he plans substantial investments that will create jobs and stimulate tour ism to the island once owned in the 1920s by the founder of Dole Foods Co. Attempts to reach Ellison through Oracle after business hours Wednesday were not suc cessful. Ellisons involvement in the deal was publicly announced by Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie. With nearly 50 miles of coast line, two resorts and zero traffic lights, Lanai boasts plenty of unspoiled charm. Tourism offi cials tout the luxury at its Four Seasons hotels and rugged rural areas that can only be reached by vehicles with four-wheel drive. If all goes as planned, most of the island that is home to 3,200 residents and near Maui will be owned by Ellison the worlds sixth-richest billionaire, according to Forbes. The outspoken Silicon Valley software magnate is known to race sailboats and make occasion al unusual purchases. He once, for example, bought a tennis tour nament to keep it in the United States. The lands current owner, Castle & Cooke Inc., filed a trans fer application Wednesday with the states public utilities com mission, which regulates utilities on the island that serve its two resorts. The sale price for the prop erty was not immediately clear. Lawyers for the seller redacted a copy of the sale agreement signed May 2, saying it includes confi dential information that would competitively hurt Ellison and the seller if disclosed. The Maui News previously reported the asking price was between $500 million and $600 million. Self-made billionaire David Murdock, who owns Castle & Cooke, said he would keep his home on Lanai and the right to build a wind farm, a contentious project that would place windmills on as many as 20 square miles of the island and deliver power to Oahu through an undersea cable. Murdock said in a statement that selling Lanai was not an impulsive decision, but he has been looking for a buyer who would have the right enthusiasm, commitment and respect for the islands residents. I have learned in life that change is inevitable and can be quite positive when guided in the right direction, Murdock said. Ellison co-founded the Redwood City, Calif.-based business soft ware company in 1977. Forbes ranks him as the third-richest American, with a net worth of $36 billion as of March. Abercrombie said Ellison has had a longstanding interest in the island. We look forward to welcoming Mr. Ellison in the near future, Abercrombie said. His passion for nature, particularly the ocean, is well known specifically in the realm of Americas Cup sailing. Maui County Mayor Alan Arakawa wished Murdock well and said he looks forward to meeting Ellison. The deal involves 88,000 acres of land, plus two resorts, two golf courses, a stable and various resi dential and commercial buildings, lawyers for Murdock told the utili ties commission in its application. Ellison plans to pay cash, and the deal should result in new jobs, economic stimulus and a reinvigo rated local tourism industry, the application said. The buyer anticipates making substantial investments in Lanai and is looking forward to partner ing with the people of Lanai to chart the islands future, Castle & Cooke lawyers said in the applica tion. Lanai is Hawaiis smallest pub licly accessible inhabited island, with some 3,200 residents. It is known as the pineapple island even though Murdock closed its pineapple operations to make way for luxury resort and home devel opment. The majority of the island was once owned by James Dole of Dole Food Co. Inc., who bought it in 1922. Murdock bought out fellow Castle & Cooke shareholders for nearly $700 million in 2000 and took the company private. According to the Hawaii Tourism Authority, more than 26,000 people visited the island from January to April of this year, a 6 percent decline from the same period last year. The utilities commission is reviewing the prospective deal because it involves indirectly transferring public utilities Castle & Cooke owns on the island a water company, a bus and shuttle service, and the islands wastewa ter utility. Castle & Cooke asked for interim approval by June 26. Hawaii law requires commis sion approval to transfer public utilities, and the commission will try to make its decision by that date, said Sean Mikell of the PUCs research division, which is considering the application. The commission does not have juris diction over the sale of the island, aside from the transfer of public utilities. J. Kalani English, a state senator who represents Lanai in Hawaiis Legislature, said hes hopeful the sale to Ellison will mean a return of agriculture to the island. Im relieved because hes one of the richest people on the planet, which means he knows hell lose a lot of money in the beginning and he can sustain that, said English, a Democrat. English said Ellison has been known to vacation on Lanai. Robin Kaye, president of Friends of Lanai, said he wasnt surprised to hear who the buyer is because Ellisons name has been floating around the island lately. Before Murdock announced he would keep wind farm rights on the island, Kaye said he hoped Ellison wouldnt pursue the proj ect. Lanai is worth more than sup plying power to Oahu, Kaye said. Seventh-generation Lanaian Sol Kahoohalahala said he hopes to see an end to high unemploy ment and more opportunities for economic development beyond tourism. I look at this as a potential opportunity for us to get the new owner to look at Lanai in terms of an island that needs to work at sustaining itself, he said. Tourism cannot be the only eco nomic engine on Lanai. Kahoohalahas family managed to hold on to some Lanai land. The 2 percent Ellison isnt buying is owned by the state, county and private residents. 2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 24, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 2DLIFE country limits on employ ment-based visas or encouraging investment in the sluggish U.S. real estate market. They have stalled amid broader public debate over immi gration reform that has focused largely on lowerskilled, undocumented workers. In recent years, more than 60 percent of Asian immigrants ages 25 to 64 have graduated from col lege, double the share for new arrivals from other continents. As a whole, the share of higher-skilled immigrants in the U.S. holding at least a bachelors degree now outpaces those lacking a high-school diploma, 30 percent to 28 percent. Like immigrants throughout American history, the new arrivals from Asia are strivers, said Paul Taylor, execu tive vice president of the Pew Research Center and co-author of the report. Whats distinctive about them is their educational credentials. These arent the tired, poor, huddled masses of Emma Lazaruss famous inscription on the Statue of Liberty. They are the highly skilled work force of the 21st century. The findings are part of Pews broad portrait of Asian-Americans, immi grants or U.S.-born chil dren of immigrants who come mostly from China, the Philippines, India, Vietnam, Korea and Japan. Now tied with Hispanics as the fastest-growing U.S. group, the nations 15.1 million Asian-Americans are slowly becoming vis ible as founders of startups in Silicon Valley, owners of ethnic eateries, grocery stores and other small businesses in cities across the U.S., as well as can didates for political office and a key bloc of voters in states such as California, Nevada and Virginia, according to experts. Projected to make up 1 in 10 residents by midcen tury, Asian-Americans as a whole tend to be more satisfied than the general public with their lives and the direction of the coun try. They lean Democratic, prefer a big government that provides more ser vices and place more value on marriage, parenthood, hard work and career suc cess. The Pew study also revealed wide variations among Asian subgroups in poverty, employment and education, which some times belied their typecast as a model minority. For instance: Poverty: As a whole, Asian-Americans had a poverty rate in 2010 of 11.9 percent, lower than the 12.8 percent for the gen eral U.S. population. By country of origin, however, Koreans, Vietnamese and Chinese were more likely than the average American to live in poverty, at rates of 14 percent or more. Education: The share of Asian-Americans who hold at least a bachelors degree surpasses the national average, 49 percent to 28 percent. Vietnamese, however, fell below the national aver age at 26 percent. People from India were most likely to have a college degree, at 70 percent. Unemployment: Asian-Americans ages 25 and older were somewhat less likely to be unem ployed than the national average for the first quar ter of 2012 6 percent compared to 7.4 percent for all U.S. workers. But in long-term unemploy ment, Asian-Americans fared much worse, with median duration of unem ployment at 28 weeks, second only to AfricanAmericans at 31 weeks. The national average was 22 weeks. Illegal immigration: While immigrants from Asia often obtain visas and arrive legally, many also sneak across the U.S. border or become undocumented residents after overstaying their visas. Up to 15 percent of Asian immigrants in the U.S. are here illegally, compared to 45 percent of Hispanic immigrants. The National Council of Asian Pacific Americans, a coalition of 30 AsianAmerican national groups, called the Pew study an important conversation starter. But the group expressed concern that the report focused too much on one-dimensional narra tives of exceptionalism about Asian-Americans at the expense of indi vidual subgroups includ ing Cambodians and Bangladeshis, who suffer low rates of educational attainment. Millions of Asian-Americans also are uninsured, and poverty has increased significant ly in their communities in recent years, the group said. The Pew study could lead some to draw conclu sions that reflect inac curate stereotypes about Asian-Americans being a community with high levels of achievement and few challenges, said Deepa Iyer, who chairs the national council. The community is not mono lithic. The Pew survey is based on an analysis of census data as well as interviews with 3,511 Asian adults living in the U.S., conducted by cell phone or landline from Jan. 3 to March 27. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.4 percentage points for all respondents, higher for subgroups. Stop by the Lake City Reporter for your complimentary engagement package.

Birth announcement By CLARKE CANFIELDAssociated PressPORTLAND, Maine — Towns in several states are adopting local ordinances that exempt farmers from state and federal regula-tions if they sell their prod-ucts directly to consumers, despite warnings that the ordinances are invalid. Residents in Livermore and Appleton, Maine, approved so-called local food and community self-governance ordinances at town meetings this month, joining six other Maine towns that did the same thing last year. Residents in Fayette, however, voted down a similar proposed ordinance. The votes should send a message that Maine resi-dents want more local say on how to regulate small farms that process food ranging from poultry and milk to cheese and jam that are sold to people in their area, said Douglas Wollmar, a small-scale pro-duce farmer in Blue Hill, which passed a similar ordinance last year. Ultimately, supporters would like to see a state law passed that addresses their concerns. “We’re trying to get more towns to pass the ordinance, because at the state level we’re not getting any attention,” Wollmar said. “The response we got from legislators is it’s nice you got five or six towns, but what you need is 50 towns before we’ll listen.” The situation isn’t unique to Maine. Towns in Massachusetts, Vermont and California have all passed so-called food sovereignty ordinances or resolutions in the past year or so. In Sandisfield, Mass., Brigitte Ruthman, the owner of Joshua’s Farm, proposed a resolution at last year’s town meet-ing after she received a cease-and-desist order from the state saying her dairy operation was illegal. Ruthman sells shares of her small dairy herd to people in the region, who then get a share of the raw milk from her cows. To comply with state demands, she would have had to invest tens of thou-sands of dollars for a new cooling system, septic sys-tem and other equipment, she said. That might be reasonable if she were a commercial dairy, but the state was coming after her for milk from a single cow that was shared by three people, she said. “On a micro level, this is really the aggravation we have with government,” she said. “You can’t control our lives, you can’t control our food choices that are very personal. Stop it.” Pete Kennedy, president of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, said he expects more towns to follow suit. “Right now Maine is way ahead of the curve as far local food ordinances, but the trend is going in that direction,’ Kennedy said. Blue Hill, Sedgwick, Penobscot, Trenton, Hope and Plymouth last year passed ordinances pro-claiming that federal and state regulations hinder local food production and usurp people’s rights to foods of their choice. Supporters say the ordi-nances promote family farms, sustainability and healthy eating. But state agriculture officials say the ordinances don’t hold legal muster and that regulatory over-sight is essential for food safety and public health. Agriculture Commissioner Walt Whitcomb, who co-owns a dairy farm, said he’s sup-portive of local food pro-ducers, but his department has to ensure the products are safe. The department strives to work with food proces-sors, and licensing require-ments aren’t as onerous as some people make them out to be, he said. Licenses require some basic com-mon-sense requirements to ensure the public’s health. “The inspection personnel try very hard to explain not only the law but the reasons why it’s beneficial for their future sales, as well as what is healthy for the consuming public,” Whitcomb said. “Setting aside the legal aspects, there’s nothing worse for sales from some-body getting sick from what they just bought from you.” The local ordinances, he said, are invalid because they’re superseded by state and federal laws. That warning, though, wasn’t enough to dissuade residents in Livermore and Appleton from green-light-ing the same ordinance in their towns last week. Cathy Lee, who collected signatures to force a vote at Livermore’s town meeting, said there’s a long history of home rule in Maine. Food safety issues, such as E. coli and salmonella problems, are more likely to crop up with large food corporations than with local farms. State regulations, she said, require added paper-work, more inspections and expensive upgrades that are geared toward large farms and corpora-tions. The regulatory bur-den, she said, is enough to put some farms and food producers out of business. In Maine, people in Fayette voted down a pro-posed food self-governance ordinance on Saturday. Town Manager Mark Robinson said residents and the board of select-men are supportive of local farms and small-scale food producers. But they realized that a local ordi-nance wouldn’t carry any legal weight. “The ordinance really did nothing other than send a message,” he said. “It gives the issue atten-tion, but I would think so could an effort to amend state laws to address the issue.” Some towns try to loosen reins on food producers Uruguay plans to let gov’t sell marijuana By PABLO FERNANDEZAssociated PressMONTEVIDEO, Uruguay — Uruguay’s national government said Wednesday it hopes to fight a growing crime problem by selling mari-juana to citizens registered to buy it, and will send a bill to Congress that would make it the first country in the world to do so. Under the plan, only the government would be allowed to sell marijuana and only to adults who register on a government database, letting officials keep track of their pur-chases over time. Minister of Defense Eleuterio Fernandez Huidobro told reporters in Montevideo that the mea-sure aims to weaken crime in the country by remov-ing profits from drug deal-ers and diverting users from harder drugs. He said the bill would be sent to Congress soon, but an exact date had not been set. “We’re shifting toward a stricter state control of the distribution and production of this drug,” Fernandez said. “It’s a fight on both fronts: against consump-tion and drug trafficking. We think the prohibition of some drugs is creating more problems to society than the drug itself.” Uruguayan newspapers have reported that money from taxes on marijuana sold by the government would go toward rehabili-tating drug addicts. The government did not pro-vide details. There are no laws against marijuana use in Uruguay. Possession of the drug for personal use has never been criminalized. Media reports have said that people who use more than a limited number of marijuana cigarettes would have to undergo drug rehabilitation. Some Uruguayans wondered how successful such a measure could be. “People who consume are not going to buy it from the state,” said Natalia Pereira, 28, adding that she smokes marijuana occasionally. “They’re going to be mistrust buy-ing it from a place where you have to register and they can typecast you.” A debate over the move lit up social media net-works in the country, with some people worried about free sales of marijuana and others joking about it. “Legalizing marijuana is not a security measure,” one man in the capital of Uruguay wrote on his Twitter account. “Ha, ha, ha!” joked another. “I can now imag-ine you going down to the kiosk to buy bread, milk and a little box of mari-juana.” The idea is to weaken crime by removing profits from drug dealers and diverting users from hard-er drugs. “The main argument for this is to keep addicts from dealing and reaching (crack-like) substances” such as base paste, said Juan Carlos Redin a psychologist who works with drug addicts in Montevideo. “Some stud-ies conclude that a large number of base paste consumers first looked for milder drugs like marijuana and ended with freebase.” Redin said Uruguayans should be allowed to grow their own marijuana because the government would run into trouble if it tries to sell it. The big question he said will be, “Who will provide the government (with mari-juana)?” “If they actually sell it themselves, and you have to go to the Uruguay gov-ernment store to buy mari-juana, then that would be a precedent for sure, but not so different than from the dispensaries in half the United States,” said Allen St. Pierre, executive direc-tor of U.S.-based National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, or NORML. St. Pierre said the move would make Uruguay the only national government in the world selling mari-juana. Numerous dispen-saries on the local level in the U.S. are allowed to sell marijuana for medical use. Possession of marijuana for personal use has never been criminalized in this South American country and a 1974 law gives judg-es discretion to determine if the amount of marijuana found on a suspect is for legal personal use or for illegal dealing. “This measure should be accompanied by efforts to get young people off drugs,” ruling party Sen. Monica Xavier told chan-nel 12 local TV. But other drug rehabilitation experts disagree with the planned bill alto-gether. Guillermo Castro, head of psychiatry at the Hospital Britanico in Montevideo says marijua-na is a gateway to stronger drugs. “In the long-run, marijuana is still poison,” Castro said adding that marijuana contains 17 times more carcinogens than those in tobacco and that its use is linked to higher rates of depression and suicide. “If it’s going to be openly legalized, something that is now in the hands of politics, it’s important that they explain to people what it is and what it pro-duces,” he said. “I think it would much more effective to educate people about drugs instead of legalizing them.” Uruguay is among the safest countries in Latin America but recent gang shootouts and ris-ing cocaine seizures have raised security concerns and taken a toll on the already dipping popular-ity of leftist President Jose Mujica. The Interior Ministry says from January to May, the num-ber of homicides jumped to 133 from 76 in the same period last year.

Muj ica’s government plans to take a step beyond legalizing marij uana. It wants to sell it. Without Michael, Jackson brothers prepare to tour By DERRIK J. LANGAP Entertainment WriterBURBANK, Calif. — Guided by a thump-ing bass line from their backing band, the Jackson brothers strut forward to a row of four micro-phones, thrusting their pelvises along the way, before launching into “Can’t Let Her Get Away,” a song their superstar sibling released on his “Dangerous” album. If they had afros and match-ing powder blue suits, it might feel like 1977 again. It doesn’t. They’re casually sporting sunglasses, workout gear and a few more pounds than when they, along with the future King of Pop, were simply known as the Jackson 5. (Also, “Can’t Let Her Get Away” was released in 1991 after the group fizzled out.) Nearly three years since Michael died while pre-paring for his comeback tour, four of his brothers — Marlon, Jermaine, Tito and Jackie — are set for their own return to the stage as The Jacksons. It hasn’t been easy. “The brothers don’t know this, but I’ve broken down several times and cried during rehearsals,” said Jermaine during a recent rehearsal break on a soundstage in Burbank, Calif. “I’m so used to Michael being on the right and then Marlon, Jackie, on and on. It’s just some-thing we never get used to.” The brothers are launching their “Unity” tour on Wednesday, five days ahead of the third anniversary of Michael’s death from an overdose of the anesthetic propofol on June 25, 2009. “For me, this cycle that comes around every year — this day, that day — that doesn’t affect me because it affects me every day,” said Marlon. “When that day comes around, it’s the same. You learn to live with it. I still wake up sometimes and go, ‘Jeez. I can’t believe my brother’s not here.’” Following Michael’s death, the four brothers appeared in the A&E real-ity series “The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty,” which chronicled their loss and attempt to stage a come-back before their brother died. Jermaine said the brothers have wanted to reunite on their own for years, but after Michael’s pass-ing, they needed time to heal — and the tour is another step in that pro-cess. They’ve rearranged their classics to suit their voices, and Jermaine said the group plans to pay tribute to Michael during their shows with a slideshow and medley that will con-clude with the tune “Gone Too Soon.” “There’s certain songs that make you feel the sorrow,” said Tito. “Then again, there are other songs that bring so much joy and happiness, such as ‘ABC’ and ‘I Want You Back’ and the up-tempo stuff like ‘This Place Hotel.’ I just imagine how he used to walk and spin and do all these things. You can feel his presence here.” The Jacksons’ tour kicks off at Rama Casino in Ontario, Canada, and is scheduled to end July 29 at the Snoqualmie Casino Amphitheater in Snoqualmie, Wash. Other stops include Detroit’s Fox Theatre, Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre and Harlem’s sold-out Apollo Theatre, where the Jackson 5 won an amateur night in 1969 before rock-eting to fame. Michael later forged unprecedented success as a solo artist. His super-stardom was unrivaled, and his brothers couldn’t capture similar acclaim or sales with their solo proj-ects or last studio album, 1989’s mostly Michael-less “2300 Jackson Street,” but their legacy as a group has remained unchanged.

DEAR ABBY: I have set the guest list for my Fourth of July party. A few people I entertained last year will not be invited back this summer. Perhaps they’ll recognize them-selves when they read the following list: (1) You arrived emptyhanded. (2) You arrived early and stayed late. (3) You never reciprocated. It’s OK if you don’t entertain in your home, but how about a restau-rant, bar or cafe? (4) You complained about what I served. (5) You solicited free advice from other guests who are legal or medical professionals. No guest in my home should have to work. (If you need a doctor or a lawyer, call their office during the week to make an appointment!) (6) You raided our liquor cabinet without permis-sion. (7) You complained about how bad the traffic was getting here. -SAN FRANCISCO HOSTESS DEAR HOSTESS: So you have been entertain-ing a collection of com-plaining moochers. I don’t blame you for paring down your guest list. I’m sure it will make your Fourth of July parties more enjoy-able and less stressful. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law, “Lisa,” is 50 and married to husband No. 5. I’ll call him “Steve.” He is 38. (Lisa’s son is 31.) The problem isn’t the age difference. It’s the fact that her husband refuses to hold a steady job. Lisa had a job with the same company for 28 years and has a very nice income. My husband and I are sick of seeing Steve mooching off his mom. He drives around in a new truck, dresses well, has a nice place to live and anything else he wants -all at my mother-in-law’s expense. Abby, she retired recently, and Steve is spending her retirement money faster than it’s coming in. What can we do to get rid of this bum? -BUMMED OUT IN GEORGIA DEAR BUMMED OUT: There is nothing you can do. After five husbands, Lisa knows what she wants. She wants a com-panion and is willing to pay the price. I’m sorry, but not as sorry as she will be when her money runs out and Steve latches onto another meal ticket. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My parents will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary this summer. I know this is a huge deal for them, and I’d like to do something really nice. However, because I am a full-time college student, my funds are limited. What could I do that will be nice, but not require me to take out a loan? -AMY IN TENNESSEE DEAR AMY: Under no circumstances should you take out a loan in order to give your parents an anni-versary party you can’t afford. Figure out how many people you CAN afford to entertain within your budget -or just take your parents out for a nice dinner. I am positive that whatever you do for them they will deeply appreciate. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Ideas or skills you used in the past can be incor-porated into a service or job prospect now. Getting together with someone you know has something to offer or contribute to one of your ideas should be consid-ered. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can make home improvements or host an event at your place that will bring you closer to people who enjoy the same inter-ests. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Overreacting, overdo-ing and overindulging will lead to emotional upset and problems with friends and family. Consider the changes you should make to improve your relation-ships, or the skills you have to offer a group you want to join. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Puttering around the house will be satisfying and will make your home your oasis. Avoid conversations with people who tend to gossip or spread rumors. +++ LEO (July 23Aug. 22): You may want to make per-sonal alterations after partici-pating in an event or group activity that offers a different lifestyle. Before you become too entrenched in change, you must look at the cost involved, both financially and emotionally. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Spicing up your life may be tempting, but before you let envy lead you in a new direction, consider your motives. A false impression is being conveyed. Stick to what and whom you know best, and you will find your niche. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A chance meeting will take you by surprise. Consider what happened in the past in order to avoid making the same mistakes. Don’t get caught up emotionally or you will miss a great oppor-tunity. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Size up your situation and consider what you can do to improve your life personally, physically and financially. Don’t trust anyone with your money, investments or emotional wellness. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Express kindness and consideration, or keep your thoughts to yourself. Changes at home will please someone you love. Being supportive will enhance important relationships. Negativity or exaggeration will lead to arguments and a loss of trust. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Take a look at property or other invest-ments you can add to your portfolio. A straight answer will help you gain respect when dealing with a friend or relative. A change of scenery will help you make a personal deci-sion. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Spend time with the person you enjoy the most. Taking time to show affection or explore new interests with someone special will lead to an interesting change in the way you live. Setting up a home-based business will offset debt. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Insecurity will prompt you to make moves based on false information. A prob-lem with excess or being gullible must be avoided. Steer clear of argumenta-tive, pushy people. Practical solutions can be found by using experience and intu-ition. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Grp. with an alphabet5 Message from police HQ 8 It makes bubbly bubbly 13 Tar17 Eastern nurse18 Brooklyn, e.g., informally 20 Hoi ___0DPP\VSODFH22 Falter while imitating Jay-Z? 24 Something thrown LQ:HVW6LGH6WRU\" 8QGHUZRUOGGHLW\,VWKDWFOHDU"29 Dickensian setting30 Trick-taking game31 Like pumice*DPHHQGLQJFU\34 See 107-Down36 Sing high notes?42 1970s exile1RWHG79 retiree, popularly 5HGXFHPDUNV".LQGRIFROXPQ49 Nesting site:DOO6WUHHWW\SH52 Develops slowly54 Cry upon arriving at an earthquake site? 58 In a frenzy59 Dines on60 X, on campuses%ULGJHORFDOH62 It may follow IRUHYHUDQGHYHU 'LGQWFRQFHDORQHV smugness 67 Region of 70-Across for which a type ofZRROLVQDPHG 69 Animal stomach70 See 67-Across72 Suffix with ball$OOV\VWHPVJR7XLWLRQDQGRWKHUV:KDWWKHWXUQRYHU prone footballSOD\HUKDG" 82 Fountain location84 El Pacfico, e.g.%DOOVKDSHGSDUW+PP87 Knock for ___::,EDWWOHORFDOH$EDGRQHPD\ contain holes 92 Shenanigans at the royal court? 95 Not a lot0LOOHDGHU98 Points in the right GLUHFWLRQ 100 Ball partner104 Begin a tour108 He wrote .QRZOHGJHLVWKHIRRGRIWKHVRXO 109 Senescence 110 Nickname for a KDUGWRXQGHUVWDQGmonarch? 114 Lens cover for a large telescope? 116 Classical bow ZLHOGHU 117 Eats up118 Outer: Prefix%ORRGULYDO2[IRUGSURIV121 Feature of grocery purchases, often 122 Coral, e.g.123 Numbers game Down 1 Bigwig2 Put a smile on6RXUFHRIWKHZRUGV PXOOLJDWDZQ\DQGFDWDPDUDQ $UH\RXNLGGLQJ PH" 5 Fives6 ___ favor7 Fort ___, N.C.8 Source of a viral outbreak 9 American ___10 Robe for one WHQGLQJDIORFN 11 Fa-la connector12 Telephone system connectors 13 Taser, say14 Airport security item *LRYDQQDGBBB 9HUGLRSHUD 16 German train track'HQWLVWVGLUHFWLYH5HFRUGOLVWLQJ23 Neighbor of 3RODQG$EEU 25 The Atlantic, in a common phrase 28 Quick preview6XEMHFWRI1HZWRQV first law of motion &DQRQSURGXFWIRU short +DYHDORRN:KHUHSLHFHVDUH put together? 37 Most holes in one1RPDG%DVHEDOOV-XVWLQRU B.
