By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comTropical Storm Debby’s drenching rains continued Monday across North Florida as the storm lingered off the Gulf coast. Flooding is expected by Tuesday and Wednesday through-out the region with 10 to 15 inches of rain and some areas getting as much as 25 inches. A flood watch is in effect for much of North Florida, including Columbia County, through Wednesday. About 6 inches fell on the area Sunday and Monday, accord-ing to rainfall data from the Suwannee River Water Management District. The county did not experience power outages, tornados or structural damage as of Monday afternoon, said Shayne Morgan, county emergency management director. Gov. Rick Scott declared a statewide emergency Monday afternoon, a usual occurrence with storms affecting so many counties, Morgan said. Eight to 12 inches of rain is expected locally between Monday and Saturday, with most of the rain falling today through Thursday, said Andrew Shashy, meteorolo-gist for the National Weather Service in Jacksonville.Flooding is expectedNWS issued flood warnings for the Santa Fe River at Fort White and the Suwannee River at White Springs. At 3 p.m. Monday, the Suwannee River had reached 55.73 feet. Rainfall from Debby will bring the Suwannee River above flood stage, 77 feet, on Wednesday and continue to rise to nearly 79.3 feet by Thursday morning, according to the NWS. The river will fall below flood stage by Friday morning. When the Suwannee reaches 80 feet water begins to enter homes and secondary roads become flooded, according to historical levels from the NWS. At 81 feet the Suwannee Valley is inundated and sec-ondary roads are closed. At 88 feet Interstate 75 will be closed, according to the NWS. Heavy rainfall from Debby will cause the Santa Fe River to rise above flood stage, 24 feet, by early Tuesday afternoon and con-tinue to rise to near 25.9 feet by Friday morning, according to the NWS. At 2 p.m. Monday the Santa Fe had reached 21.41 feet at Fort White. Meanwhile the Santa Fe at Three River Estates was measured at 8.89 feet Monday and is expected to rise to 20.6 feet on Saturday with flood stage beginning at 19 feet. At 24 feet minor damage to buildings is possible due to boat wash, based on his-toric levels. At 26 feet damage to homes at low elevation is likely, as well as basement areas under homes on stilts. Residents and those with interests along the rivers should take action to protect threatened property, according to the weather service.

By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comDespite the soaking rain, officials said it is still too early to know the impact Debby will have on the region’s drought. “This is much needed relief for drought condi-tions,” said Shayne Morgan, county emergency manage-ment director. Columbia County’s rainfall deficit was 12.11 inches at the end of May. From June 1 to June 24, the Lake City/Alligator Lake area received 7.22 inches, according to the Suwannee River Water Management District. Residents should use extreme caution while driving this week and stay updated on storm condi-tions, Morgan said. An isolated tornado from the storm killed one per-son and authorities are con-tinuing to look for another person who disappeared in the surf in Alabama. State officials estimated at least 35,000 homes and busi-nesses were without power Monday. As of Sunday, 23 percent of oil and gas production in the region had been suspended, according to a government hurricane response team. Employees have been evacuated from 13 drilling rigs and 61 pro-duction platforms in the JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterWellborn resident Jeff Ellis wades in flood water near his home on Monday left by the outer bands of tropical storm Debby.

By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comA Columbia County man was arrested Saturday after trying to stab his two adult sons with a pock-et knife, say police. Christopher Gene Graham, 54, was arrested on charges of aggra-vated battery, aggravated assault, battery, assault and making a false report to law enforcement, accord-ing to a press release. At about 5:45 a.m, Columbia County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to call for an injured person on S.W. Santos Terrace. There Graham told deputies he was attacked by two unknown peo-ple, according to police. Graham had an injury to his head and was bleeding. He was transported to a medical facility for treatment. After investigating, police learned Graham was not attacked as he previously reported. Graham was intoxicated and con-fronted his adult son in the front yard of the home and tried to hit the son with a lawn chair, accord-ing to police. Graham then tried to stab his son with pocket knife, reports said, though the son was able to get away. Seeing the fight, Graham’s other adult son tried to get in between his father and broth-er. Graham then attacked the second son with the knife and slashed him across the forehead, cheek and chest, according to reports. Both sons were able to pin Graham on the ground outside the home. They refused medical treatment. Graham was arrested after receiving medical treatment and booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $72,000 bond. Man jailed after attempt to stab sons with knife Graham By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Columbia County Clerk of Court office plans to change its office hours because of recent legislative budget cuts. According to information from the clerk’s office, the new office hours for court-related services will be 9 a.m. 4 p.m. Monday Friday. The new office hours will become effective Monday, July 2. Office hours for recording, marriage and passports will remain the same, 8 a.m. 5 p.m., Monday Friday. The change in office hours is the result of budget cuts by the state legislature. Florida lawmak-ers have controlled the overall budget of the clerks since 2009, even though the clerks are elect-ed officials. This year clerks’ total budget statewide was cut by $30 million and may result in up to 900 clerks office employees los-ing their jobs statewide. The Columbia County Clerk of Courts 2011-12 fiscal year budget is $1,316,090. The 2012-13 budget, which begins July 1, will be $1,230,842, which includes the seven percent budget reduc-tion by the Florida Legislature. The reduction equals just over $85,000, or 2.5 positions. “The reason we reduced the hours is because I had to shift some people and [might have to] let a person go and that’s going to make them more short-hand-ed than they are,” said Columbia County Clerk of Court, P. Dewitt Cason. “It will allow them to have some uninterrupted time during the work day to keep the paper-work up for the courts.” The local clerk’s office is broken up into two divisions — courts and non-courts. Non courts duties include recording of public docu-ments, paying the county’s bills and making investments. The courts side has administrative duties of keeping court records and court evidence storage. The budget cuts have occurred on the court’s side. Last week Florida lawmakers were considering allowing the clerks to keep $29.5 million collect-ed for fines and fees to go towards their budgets. However, Cason said the group never approved a meet-ing agenda and he is uncertain whether they are going to meet. “We’re just going ahead with our plan to accept the reduction,” Cason said. However, he said there is talk the Legislative Budget Commission could meet early in July and approve giving the clerks the $29.5 million. “At this point in time we have to prepare for the July 1 fiscal year and that’s why I have to make these changes at this time,” Cason said. Although the clerk’s office hours are being altered, Cason said he doesn’t know whether that altera-tion alone will prevent layoffs. “At the very most I may be able to go with the current staff until about August then I’m going to have to re-evaluate whether I’m going to have to lay some people off.” Budget cuts force clerkto change office hours By RAY HENRYAssociated PressATLANTA — The U.S. Supreme Court refused Monday to intervene in a water dispute between Alabama, Florida and Georgia that until a year ago threatened to severely restrict metro Atlanta’s main water supply. That decision means an appeals court ruling favorable to metro Atlanta will stand. Authorities in Florida, Alabama and even southern Georgia complain that Atlanta takes too much water from Lake Lanier, a federal reservoir on the Chattahoochee River, leaving too little downstream for wildlife, industry and drinking water systems. The Chattahoochee flows south from Atlanta, forming part of the border between Alabama and Georgia. It merges with the Flint River at the Florida state line and becomes the Apalachicola River, which cuts south across the Florida Panhandle and empties into the Gulf of Mexico. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal called the Supreme Court’s decision a victory for his state. “We can now move forward with this issue behind us, have the governors work together and come to a long-term agreement that will provide for the water needs of all three states,” Deal said in a written statement. The governors of neighboring Alabama and Florida were not ready to concede. While the last ruling strength-ened Atlanta’s hand, it did not by itself address all the issues in a long-running dispute that dates to 1990. The dispute centers on how much water Atlanta can take from Lake Lanier. The city never contributed to the cost of building the dam, which was completed around 1960, because city officials did not believe water would be in short sup-ply. Alabama and Florida officials have said Congress approved the dam so it could provide electricity, support naviga-tion and control floods — but not supply drinking water.Top court won’t hear tri-state water dispute Vol. 138, No. 109

Do not I ll heaven and earth? declares the LORD. Jeremiah 23:24 NIV ORLANDO With a brand new plan to bring long-awaited renovations to its 76-year-old Florida Citrus Bowl, Orlando offi cials are hoping the time is finally right to host a a national championship game or one of the new college football playoff games. After several years of false starts, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs announced a plan Monday that will finance a projected $175 million facelift for the sta dium that currently hosts the Capital One Bowl and Russell Athletic Bowl games annually. I think our community, if we have the right facili ties, can host anything that the world has to offer, Dyer said. We have the best arena in the entire world. Im not promising the best stadium, but we will have a B-plus, A-minus stadium that we can host just about anything that can be hosted in a stadium. So between those two facilities and the conven tion center, there isnt anything that we cant compete for. A plan to fund the renovations was originally struck between the city and county in 2007 as part of a larger project that was also going to provide money for the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center and help build the new Amway Center. That plan called for the city to issue bonds to pay for the con struction work, with the county paying yearly debt on bonds using tourism taxes. The economic downturn caused that money stream to evaporate, with the city no longer being able to secure credit to borrow needed money for all three projects. The Citrus Bowl renovations became the immediate casualty. Dyer and Jacobs met on June 6 during a public face-to-face meeting in which they agreed to put together a deal to begin Citrus Bowl renovations. Both left that meeting with an agreement to back up debt for construction with both the city and county funding contributions. We did very little nego tiation before that meet ing. We negotiated where we wanted to sit and that was about it, Jacobs said. After that, it was really up to Mayor Dyer and I just to sit down and have a frank conversation. Heavy rains make residents scramble TAMPA Officials say nearly 100 residents of a Tampa retirement commu nity were evacuated follow ing a flood scare. Staff at Sunrise Village Retirement Homes decid ed to evacuate Monday, with water from Tropical Storm Debby already ris ing up to the building. The Tampa Bay Times reports that the evacua tion was voluntary, and residents were being taken by bus to other Sunrise Village facilities. Group sues to get justices off ballot TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott could get a chance to overhaul the Florida Supreme Court. A conservative legal group on Monday filed a lawsuit that aims to block three Florida Supreme Court justices from getting new six-year terms on the court. Voters this fall are sup posed to decide whether to keep Justices Fred Lewis, Barbara Pariente and Peggy Quince on the bench. But the Southeastern Legal Foundation, which filed suit on behalf of two Florida residents, contends that three justices did not property fill out their elec tion-related paperwork and did not follow state law. The group is asking a Leon County circuit judge to order state election officials to remove their names from the November ballot. As has been the case with other candidates for high office in Florida and elsewhere, the laws and rules that govern elections and public disclosures are designed to provide public accountability and some times result in disqualifica tion from the ballot, said Shannon Goessling, execu tive director of the founda tion. For those in the legal profession in public office, particularly judges, there is an additional, height ened duty to follow the rules to the fullest extent because we ask judges to determine what the law is. In Florida, appeals judges and supreme court justices are appointed by the governor. But instead of running for re-election, they are subject to an upor-down merit retention vote. The three justices nearly missed the deadline to qualify for the ballot in April. New deal struck for Citrus Bowl renovation project Cronkite (Harper), by Douglas Brinkley Memo to bloggers: Earning the title most trusted man in America doesnt happen overnight. For longtime CBS Evening News anchor Walter Cronkite, decades spent reporting not ren dering opinions preced ed his unofficial coronation as the person to turn to for the straight story. It didnt have to be that way. As historian Douglas Brinkley relates in his detailed and insightful biog raphy, Cronkite could have become a crusader like his CBS News colleague Edward R. Murrow. Or he could have turned tempo rary gigs hosting a morning show or a game show into his lifes work. For that mat ter, he could have returned to his native Missouri. But reporting the news favored Cronkites nature he enjoyed finding facts and talking to people and it matched his training as a newspaperman and his early experiences in radio and as a wire service report er. For him, reporting with accuracy and fairness was a worthy calling and at times an exciting one. Cronkite (1916-2009) was a good writer and tireless when it came to getting information. He moved from United Press postings in Kansas City and New York to London as the U.S. entered World War II. His experience as a war corre spondent and as a postwar reporter in Moscow further seasoned his perspective and added to his credibility. Cronkite joined CBS News in 1950, a late arrival to big-time broadcasting the loyal Unipresser had turned down Murrows offer of a radio job during the war but then excelled in the new medium with a wide variety of assign ments. Brinkley writes of Cronkites stature in 1960, two years before he began a 19-year run as the networks evening news anchor: He had come to personify the CBS eye even more than Murrow, and was anointed by the TV viewers as Americas most likable and professional eyewitness to the 20th century. Cyrus makes his way to Broadway Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus is making his Broadway debut in Chicago. The singer of Achy Breaky Heart and father of Miley Cyrus is detour ing from his Nashville roots in taking on the role of criminal lawyer Billy Flynn for a seven-week engagement beginning Nov. 5. Cyrus starred with his daughter in the hit TV series Hannah Montana, and has acted in TV mov ies on Lifetime and the Hallmark Channel.

BOX jbox@lakecityreporter.com As Tropical Storm Debby bears down on North Florida, families need to have an emergency plan in place that includes safe food and water stor age. There have yet to be any power outages reported locally due to Debby. However, the Florida Department of Children and Families and the U.S. Department of Agricultures Food Safety and Inspection Service have some steps that will help you feed your families safely in the event of a power outage. As you prepare your home for hurricane season, remember to pro tect food from being exposed to con taminated water or unsafe storage temperatures in a power outage, said Dr. Elisabeth Hagen, USDA Under Secretary for Food Safety When it comes to emergencies of any kind, planning ahead is always the best strategy to help reduce the risk of foodborne illness. n Keep an appliance thermometer in the refrigerator and freezer to help determine if food is safe during power outages. The refrigerator tempera ture should be 40 F or lower and the freezer should be 0 F or lower. n Store food on shelves that will be safely out of the way of contaminated water in case of flooding. n Have coolers on hand to keep refrigerator food cold if the power will be out for more than 4 hours. n Purchase or make ice and store in the freezer for use in the refrig erator or in a cooler. Freeze gel packs ahead of time for use in coolers. n Keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible. A refrigerator will keep food cold for about 4 hours if you keep the door closed. A full freezer will keep its temperature for about 48 hours (24 hours if half-full). n Discard any perishable food (such as meat, poultry, fish, soft cheeses, milk, eggs, leftovers and deli items) that have been kept in a refrigerator or freezer above 40 F for two hours or more. n Undamaged, commercially prepared foods in all-metal cans or pouches can be saved. n Use bottled water that has not been exposed to flood waters.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Phil Hudginsphudgins@cninewspapers.com Q The Washington Times OPINION Tuesday, June 26, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AEDIT H ave you been to the emergency room lately? If you haven’t, try to avoid it. That may not be possible, because when you call your primary-care doctor seek-ing immediate attention, the first thing you hear is an auto-mated voice telling you to “call 911 or go directly to the ER.” Trying to find relief in the emergency room -especially on or approaching a holiday -is like stumbling into a scene jointly written by Joseph Heller and Franz Kafka. As in “Catch 22” and “The Castle,” there’s no way out. The horror began in midafternoon with a hurried call for help. The 74-year-old woman had fallen and feared she was badly hurt. Her daughter arrived within minutes and found her on the floor, unable to get on her feet. They called 911. The response was quick, and with some effort she was placed on a gurney and rushed to the hospital two miles away. After the daughter had dealt with the admittance bureau-cracy in what has become Northern Virginia’s major hospital center, she found her mother in an ER treatment room in major discomfort. Nurses and doctors filed in and out, with long intervals in between. X-rays showed that she has broken her right arm near the shoulder (she’s right-handed). The final diagnosis was that, while she did not need surgery, she would need a sling for more than a month. Her right knee, while not broken, could not support her. An orthopedic resident showed up six hours later and declined to admit the woman, despite her age, her lack of mobility, her diabetes and a history of congestive heart failure. The patient lives alone in a house full of stairs, and her daughter’s house was no bet-ter suited to dealing with her injuries. “We can’t admit her for a broken arm,” he said. “But it is more than that,” the daughter protested. The patient was released. After a heroic struggle, she was somehow loaded into the back of the daughter’s car, driven home and ultimately installed in a recliner on the house’s first floor, not far from a powder room. There she stayed for four days as relatives took turns attending. Throughout the pro-cess, numerous calls for nursing care or admittance to a rehab center ended with “you need to call these people.” It became clear no outside help was avail-able on a holiday weekend. More importantly, the patient was told, in a classic Heller turn: “You have to be admitted to the hospital for three nights before Medicare or anyone else will come to the rescue.” Guess what? That would mean going back through the ER process, a totally unaccept-able solution. By the fifth day, the woman was running a fever, had developed a severe cough, and was listless and refusing food. The daughter again called the ambulance and the mother went to the ER. Seven hours later, the patient was moved again -this time to a room in the hospital’s heart center. She had developed pneumonia from being unable to move, and there were signs of other severe problems. A week later, she was assigned to rehab. All this could have been avoided with the proper response to the first emergency. The ER staff is a hassled, overworked lot that moves at a snail’s pace and the ER special-ists seem oblivious to ailments except with the most urgent trauma. (In 13 hours, the patient had spent less than five minutes in the presence of an actual doc-tor.) Much of this clearly stems from the fact that Americans with no insurance use the ERs as their only access to medicine. They have no doctor, just the ER, and they naturally clog the system. They have no other recourse. Medical care in America is a learning experience. One of the things learned is that it fre-quently doesn’t work very well. U ruguay is said to be one of South America’s most pleasant lands and, under proposed new government legislation, it may become one of its mellowest. The leftist government of President Jose Mujica is propos-ing a government monopoly to sell marijuana. The government would sell only to adults and only to those who register on a government database that would keep track of their use. There are no laws against marijuana possession now in Uruguay so those who wanted to smoke more without making the govern-ment suspicious could easily buy weed on the private market. Advocates advance several arguments in favor of legal sales by the government. The govern-ment would buy directly from farmers, eliminating the cut the black market takes out of their profits; the government’s profits would go to drug rehabilitation programs and, undoubtedly, to the national treasury; and, it is hoped, readily available marijuana would lessen the attraction of harder drugs. Further, they argue, legal sales would deny profits to illegal drug traffickers. The country has become alarmed by a recent spate of drug-related violence, minuscule compared to other South American nations but alarming in this generally peace-ful and law-abiding land. Uruguay has a population of 3.38 million, 98-percent literacy, a life expectancy of 76 years, and a per-capita income of $15,700. The State Department says it has a strong legal system, open finan-cial markets and welcomes for-eign investors. Unfortunately, it also has a high rate of emigration of young people; perhaps hassle-free marijuana will persuade them to stay. Uruguay must realize, as the first nation to completely legalize the sale of marijuana, even as a government monopoly, it will be closely watched by advocates in favor of legalization and those in favor of criminalization. If legal and open sales of marijuana attract crowds and tourists and expand the tax base, we may see in the United States some-thing like what happened earlier: Puritanical, blue-nosed, no-sales-on-Sundays states that found themselves cash short suddenly found unexpected virtues in lot-teries, slots and casino gambling. The tip-off will be when the first planeload of governors, members of Congress and state dignitaries flies down to Montevideo on a “fact-finding” mission. Dan K. Thomasson Q Dan K.

Dale McFeattersmcfeattersd@shns.com Y ou may have heard this maxim about writing good stories. It’s “show me, don’t tell me.” Rather than just telling me the speaker was angry, show me he was angry by his actions: His faced red-dened; he banged on the table; he stormed out of the room. That same principle applies to good teaching. Besides just telling their students, good teachers show their students. They get them involved; they even let them do something themselves, something that might actually be enjoyable. They know that if they do it right, learning can be fun. V.C. Allison, my science teacher in high school, knew that. Instead of just talking about insects, V.C. got students involved. One day, he fried some grasshoppers in the class-room and invited brave souls to have a bite. (They taste a lot like okra.) Caye Guidry knows that. Caye has been teaching for 34 years, and here’s what she says about retiring: “I’ll retire when I don’t wake up excited to go to work every morning. But that may never happen.” She is working on her doctorate so that she can teach teachers when she finally does retire, if that ever happens. Joseph Lloyd “Doc” Johnson knows that learning can be fun. Doc, one of the smartest people I know, wanted to dem-onstrate to a group of young summer-campers how to build a log cabin. But first he needed a mule to show how American pioneers snaked logs from the woods to the home site. The city frowns on folks who keep live mules in close neighbor-hoods, so Doc bought and equipped a mule made of fiber-glass and memories. He called his show “Mules and Tools.” He got youngsters involved in using the tools, and everybody learned. Folks at the Fernbank Science Center in Atlanta know that learning can be fun. They built an exhibit called “The Scoop on Poop.” It’s a full-blown exhibit proving that animals and their deposits can be fascinating, scientific stuff. The exhibit is done tastefully, if that’s the right word. Our grandchildren were enthralled. (Did you know an adult ele-phant can fill the trunk of your car with just one day’s worth of droppings, if that’s the right word?) So, now, think back to your childhood—to your school days. Are your most vivid mem-ories of something a teacher told you or actually showed you how to do? A person might tell you how to clean up after an elephant, and you’d probably forget. But if he showed you how and you actually did it…, well, you get the idea. Teaching, I learned from V.C. and Caye and Doc and Fernbank, does not have to be boring. “It’s so unboring,” Caye Guidry says. My suggestion is this: If you remember a special teacher in your life or the life of your child, why not say thanks in a note or a phone call. Like the bumper sticker says, “If you can read this, thank a teacher.” He or she will appreci-ate it. Learning doesn’t have to be boring L iberals are trying to pound home the idea that Mitt Romney is out of touch with regu-lar Americans. At least he’s not trying to take away their wedding presents. This week MSNBC played a selectively edited videotape of Mr. Romney seemingly showing his fascination with the process of ordering food at a Wawa restaurant in Pennsylvania. Reporter Andrea Mitchell com-pared the visit to George H. W. Bush’s alleged amazement with a grocery store scanner in 1992. MSNBC was called on the doctored tape, but the news organization failed to apologize. This follows closely after three journalists were fired from an NBC affiliate in Miami for edit-ing the audio tape of George Zimmerman’s 911 call the night he shot Trayvon Martin to make it more inflammatory. Other media outlets are behaving more responsibly. Late Thursday, Politico suspended White House correspondent Joseph Williams for saying that Mr. Romney is only relaxed among white people. Appearing on MSNBC, Mr. Williams had said that Mr. Romney is “stiff and awkward in town hall set-tings” because he “can’t relate to people” who aren’t like him, but he can relax on “Fox and Friends” because “they’re white folks who are very much relaxed in their own company.” Politico said these comments “fell short of our standards for fairness and judgment.” The latest Obama campaign fundraising vehicle will not help, either. The “Obama Event Registry” asks people planning weddings to have guests send a donation to the campaign in place of a gift to the newlyweds. “Let your friends know how important this election is to you,” the site exhorts. “It’s a great way to support the president on your big day” and “goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.” This may very well go down as the tackiest political appeal in his-tory, at least until the campaign suggests that people organizing funerals have donations sent to Mr. Obama in lieu of flowers.Mr. Obamawants yourweddingpresents

Columbia school board member gains certification at conference Johnson By BILL KACZORAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — The head of Florida State University told Gov. Rick Scott’s higher educa-tion reform panel Monday that budget cuts are making his fac-ulty a “farm team” for out-of-state schools. Florida State President Eric Barron advocated letting his university and the University of Florida, the state’s top two research schools, raise tuition beyond the current legal limit to overcome the budget cuts. But Scott had already vetoed such an idea two months ago. Barron said shrinking state support, including a $300 mil-lion cut for the State University System in the budget year begin-ning Sunday, has meant that Florida State cannot prevent its best faculty members from leav-ing for higher paying jobs. He added that will make it more difficult to attract top students as well as research dollars from corporations and the federal gov-ernment, key factors in promot-ing job creation and the state’s economic development. Of 58 arts and sciences faculty members who received outside offers, Florida State was able to retain only eight, Barron said. He said they received offers that averaged $20,000, or 24 percent, more than what they were mak-ing at Florida State. Barron said he can match competing schools in starting pay but not for higher ranking profes-sors. “They’re letting us become the farm team for other states,” Barron told the Blue Ribbon Task Force on State Higher Education Reform. “Another university looks and says, ‘Wow, they’ve got an excellent faculty member, but they don’t give raises there; I can pluck them off for even cheaper than what I pay an associate pro-fessor.’” The Legislature passed a bill that would have let Florida State and Florida boost tuition beyond the 15 percent annual maximum allowed by law. In vetoing the measure, Scott said the universities needed to provide him with more details on what students and taxpayers would get in return for the higher tuition. Asked about Barron’s comments to the task force, Scott acknowledged that students and their parents, as consumers, would be willing to pay more for a better education. “We’ve started the process of having that conversation, and I think we’re going to have a lot of it over the next 12 months,” Scott said. Florida’s “brain drain” will continue due to reductions in ben-efits, including a new law requir-ing public employees to contrib-ute 3 percent of their pay to the Florida Retirement System, as well as noncompetitive salaries, said Jennifer Proffitt, an associate professor of communications and information at Florida State. “Loyalty to the university is not rewarded,” Proffitt told the panel. “Those rewards, of course, include salaries.” Barron also argued that students who attend the top-rated research universities are paying relatively little for that advantage because the difference in tuition among the state’s 11 active uni-versities is under $30 per month. Florida’s public universities rank 45th in tuition and fees among the 50 states and District of Columbia. The Board of Governors last week approved tuition increases ranging from 9 percent to 15 percent for the various schools, but they are still expected to rank among the lowest in the nation. The board approved 13 percent for Florida State although the school had sought 15 percent. Scott had opposed the increases. FSU a ‘farm team’ for out-of-state schools By MARK SHERMANAssociated PressWASHINGTON — A divided Supreme Court threw out major parts of Arizona’s tough crack-down on illegal immigrants Monday in a ruling sure to rever-berate through the November elections. The justices unani-mously approved the law’s most-discussed provision — requiring police to check the immigration status of those they stop for other reasons — but limited the conse-quences. Although upholding the “show me your papers” requirement, which some critics say could lead to ethnic profiling, the justices struck down provisions that cre-ated state crimes allowing local police to arrest people for federal immigration violations. And they warned against detaining people for any prolonged period merely for not having proper immigra-tion papers. The mixed outcome vindicated the Obama administration’s aggressive challenge to laws passed by Arizona and the five states — Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, South Carolina and Utah — that followed its lead in attempting to deal with illegal immigration in the face of fed-eral inaction on comprehensive reform. The administration had assailed the Arizona law as an unconsti-tutional intrusion into an area under federal control. Justice Anthony Kennedy, joined in his majority opinion by conservative Chief Justice John Roberts as well as three liber-al justices, said the impasse in Washington over immigration reform did not justify state intru-sion. “Arizona may have understandable frustrations with the prob-lems caused by illegal immigra-tion while that process continues, but the state may not pursue policies that undermine federal law,” Kennedy said. That part of the ruling drew a caustic dissent from Justice Antonin Scalia, who said the Obama administration doesn’t want to enforce existing immigration law. A second opinion with potentially important implications for the presidential campaign is expected when the court meets Thursday to issue its final rulings this term. The court’s verdict on Obama’s landmark health care overhaul probably will come that day. In other action Monday, the court: — Ruled unconstitutional by a 5-4 vote state laws that require judges to impose sentences of life in prison with no possibility of parole on convicted murderers younger than 18. — Struck down, also 5-4, a Montana law limiting corporate campaign spending, declining to revisit the two-year-old ruling in the Citizens United case. The Arizona decision landed in the middle of a presidential cam-paign in which President Barack Obama has been heavily court-ing Latino voters and Republican challenger Mitt Romney has been struggling to win Latino support. During a drawn-out primary cam-paign, Romney and the other GOP candidates mostly embraced a hard line on the estimated 11 mil-lion illegal immigrants, though Romney has lately taken a softer tone. Obama said he was pleased that the court struck down key parts of Arizona’s law but was con-cerned about what the high court left intact. “No American should ever live under a cloud of suspicion just because of what they look like,” the president said in a writ-ten statement. He said police in Arizona should not enforce the provision in a way that under-mines civil rights. “What this decision makes unmistakably clear is that Congress must act on compre-hensive immigration reform,” Obama said. In Scottsdale, Ariz., later Monday, Romney said he would have preferred that the court “give more latitude to the states” in immigration enforcement. Romney told campaign donors that the law has “become a mud-dle” and that the states have more options to enforce their own immigration laws. Earlier, he said in a statement, “I believe that each state has the duty — and the right — to secure our borders and preserve the rule of law, particularly when the federal government has failed to meet its responsibilities.” In his majority opinion, Kennedy distinguished the “show me your papers” provision from the other challenged parts of the law by pointing out that consulta-tion between local and federal authorities already is an impor-tant part of the immigration sys-tem. Local and state police called on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s support center more than 1 million times in 2009 alone, he said. Kennedy said the law could — and suggested it should — be read to avoid concerns that status checks could lead to prolonged detention. “Detaining individuals solely to verify their immigration status would raise constitutional concerns,” he said, but he did not define what would constitute too long a detention. A divided court struck down these three major provisions: — Requiring all immigrants to obtain or carry immigration reg-istration papers. — Making it a state criminal offense for an illegal immigrant to seek work or hold a job. — Allowing police to arrest suspected illegal immigrants without warrants. The vote was 6-2 against making it a state crime not to carry immigration papers and 5-3 against the other two provisions. Justice Elena Kagan sat out the case because of her previous work in the Obama administra-tion. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said the ruling marked a victory for people who believe in the respon-sibility of states to defend their residents. The case, she said, “has always been about our sup-port for the rule of law. That means every law, including those against both illegal immigration and racial profiling. Law enforce-ment will be held accountable should this statute be misused in a fashion that violates an individ-ual’s civil rights.” Civil rights groups that separately challenged the law over concerns that it would lead to rights abuses said their lawsuit would go on. High court limits state action on immigration By JACK GILLUMAssociated PressSCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Mitt Romney on Monday said the Supreme Court should have given states “more latitude” to deal with immigration than the justices allowed when they struck down key parts of Arizona’s tough immigration enforce-ment law. The likely Republican nominee declined to address the specifics of the court’s deci-sion to uphold the Arizona law’s “show me your papers” requirement but prohibit police officers from arresting people on minor immigration charges, taking the teeth out of the law’s enforcement. “I would have preferred to see the Supreme Court give more latitude to states, not less. And the states, now under this decision, have less authority, less lati-tude, to enforce immigration law,” Romney told donors at a fundraiser in Scottsdale, a wealthy enclave outside Phoenix. The event raised $2 million, the campaign said. Romney instead used Monday’s ruling as an opportunity to criticize President Barack Obama for what he termed inac-tion on immigration reform until recently. Romney called for a national immigra-tion strategy and insisted he would tackle immigration during his first year in office. America’s immigration laws have “become a muddle,” Romney said. The court struck down three major provisions of Arizona’s immigration enforce-ment law: requiring all immigrants to obtain or carry immigration registration papers; making it a state criminal offense for an illegal immigrant to seek work or hold a job; and allowing police to arrest suspected illegal immigrants without war-rants. Romney campaign spokesman Rick Gorka told reporters that “the gover-nor supports the states’ rights to craft immigration laws when the federal gov-ernment had failed to do so.” He repeat-edly declined to answer questions about whether Romney agreed with the ruling or whether the former Massachusetts governor would support the kind of laws the high court found mostly unconstitu-tional. Romney has worked to soften his rhetoric on immigration policy since becoming the presumptive Republican nominee for president. During the Republican primary, he never endorsed Arizona’s immigration law. Asked in February during a GOP primary debate in Arizona whether he sup-ported tough immigration enforcement that includes arrests, Romney said: “I think you see a model in Arizona.” Romney says immigration law has become a ‘muddle’ By MARK SHERMANAssociated PressWASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday turned away a plea to revisit its 2-year-old campaign finance decision in the Citizens United case and instead struck down a Montana law limit-ing corporate campaign spending. The same five conservative justices in the Citizens United majori-ty that freed corporations and labor unions to spend unlimited amounts in federal elections joined Monday to reverse a Montana court ruling upholding the state’s century-old law. The four liberal justices dis-sented. “The question presented in this case is whether the holding of Citizens United applies to the Montana state law. There can be no serious doubt that it does,” the court said in an unsigned opinion. The Citizens United decision paved the way for unlimited spend-ing by corporations and labor unions in elections for Congress and the president, as long as the dollars are independent of the cam-paigns they are intended to help. The decision, grounded in the free-dom of speech, appeared to apply equally to state contests. In a brief dissent Monday, Justice Stephen Breyer said cam-paign spending since 2010 “casts grave doubt on the court’s supposi-tion that independent expenditures do not corrupt or appear to do so.” State leaders in Montana swiftly condemned the decision. Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock called the nation’s high court just “another political body.” State corporate campaign spending limits rejected


By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comLake City’s 12-under allstar team used the long ball to power its way to the championship in the Florida Babe Ruth Baseball District 6 Tournament last week at the Southside Sports Complex. Lake City 12U won the American Bracket by defeat-ing Fort White on Saturday. Lake City met National Bracket winner Madison County for the District 6 championship on Sunday and won, 6-5. Lake City went 5-0 in tournament play and advances to the state tour-nament in Live Oak, which begins the Thursday after the Fourth of July. Madison and Lake City were tied 4-4 through four innings. In the bottom of the fifth Cody Collins led off with a single and Ethan Perkins followed with a home run. Madison scored one run in the sixth inning before Hunter Houston closed out the game. Brock Edge and Caleb Strickland scored in Lake City’s two-run first inning. Houston scored in the third inning and Dylan Blair scored in the fourth. Edge had three hits in the game. Strickland had two hits. Blair, Houston and Micah Krieghauser added hits. Perkins’ home run was his first in tournament play, and it followed a pattern for Lake City. In Saturday’s 7-6 victory over Fort White, Edge pro-vided the winning margin with a walk-off home run for his third run of the game. Blair, Perkins, Strickland and Krieghauser scored runs, as Lake City faced deficits of 4-2 and 6-3. Edge also hit a home run in Lake City’s 13-6 win over Hamilton County on Friday. Strickland had a home run in each of Lake City’s first three games, and Houston homered in a win over Branford. Houston scored four runs Lake City Reporter SPORTS Tuesday, June 26, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Editor754-0421tkirby@lakecityreporter.com 1BSPORTS ALL-STARS continued on 6B Bombs away COURTESY PHOTOMembers of the Lake City 12-under Babe Ruth Baseball al l-stars with their District 6 championship trophies are ( front row, from left) batboy Colby Strickland, Danon Dumas, Noah Feagl e, Ethan Perkins and Micah Krieghauser.

Cohrs. Back row (from left) are coach Brady Wilkinson, c oach Donnie Wilkinson, Willie Carter, Trace Wilkinson, Kyle Sharpe, Raymond Barber and coach Mike Price.Special to the ReporterFort White’s 15-under all-stars baseball team had three goals at the start of the season: win district; win a first-ever Small State championship; and, win a state championship. Lofty goals indeed. But with a team dominated by 15-year-olds who have already won or been a part of four consecutive district titles, coach Donnie Wilkinson believed it would be able to get that done. Cross off goal number one as mission accom-plished, as Fort White out-scored District 6 opponents 31-6 this past weekend in Lake City. It came down to Fort White needing to beat Lafayette County to win the district title and Fort White proved victorious, 5-4. Rhett Willis got the win on the mound and held the Lafayette in check with nine strikeouts. Trailing 3-1 in the fifth inning, Fort White got runs from Alex Mitchell (hbp), Jordan Harrington (walk) and Willis (error). Tyler Wendel’s RBI-single was the big hit, as Fort White moved ahead, 4-3. Kyle Sharpe drove in an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth inning. J.J. Cohrs relieved Willis in the top of the seventh inning to close things out. Earlier in the tournament, Fort White throttled Live Oak Suwannee 15-1. Willie Carter and Trace Wilkinson had a pair of hits each. Also with hits were Raymond Barber (double), Brent Beach (double), Austin Dupree, Sharpe, Cohrs and Willis. Wendel dominated with a one-hitter in five innings of work. On Saturday against county rival, Lake City, Fort White brought on the mercy rule after five innings. With nine walks, several bunt hits and communica-tion gaffes by the opponent, Fort White was able to small ball Lake City at will. Wendel, Carter and Dupree had bunt singles and Beach and Harrington had RBI-hits. Wilkinson and Cohrs held Lake City to four hits from Kaleb Thomas, Jason Bass, Dylan Stalter and Tyler Morgan. Cody Bass had a sac fly. Carter (.556), Harrington (.500), Cohrs (.400) and Wilkinson (.400) led Fort White in batting. Fort White continues its quest this weekend, as a Small States tourney host.

DEAR ABBY: “Pennsville, N.J., Reader” (May 15) complained that her book club members don’t always read their current book and want to socialize instead. I can add nothing to your thought-ful answer. Still, her letter troubles me. As you know, literacy is under siege in America, and many people can’t follow the directions on a box of cake mix. Years ago, I heard Margaret Mead speak. She warned us against turning into a “machine-worship-ping society,” and that is precisely what we have become. It’s killing off a part of our brains. We are wired to electronic mes-saging most of the time, at our peril. Reading serious books helps to reclaim our brains. Each member of my group has a voice in select-ing the book. Most of us do read the monthly selec-tion, and the moderator -friendly but firm -keeps us on track with our dis-cussions. No one ventures too far afield, ever. If some-one comes to the meeting and hasn’t read the selec-tion, she simply listens and takes notes while the oth-ers discuss the designated chapters. I feel strongly that if anyone wants to socialize instead, he/she should arrange and host their own meetings at home and make it clear that the gathering is a social chat. -BOOK CLUB MEMBER IN NEW YORK DEAR BOOK CLUB MEMBER: Readers agree that the reading and social-izing should be kept sepa-rate and were quick to offer solutions to the problem of mixing the two. Read on: DEAR ABBY: For years, I have led three book groups in three different states. Our monthly meet-ings are two hours long; the discussions are 60 to 90 minutes. Socializing comes afterward. We choose books by ballot, voting from a list submit-ted by members. Each member leads discus-sions on a rotating basis of a book that particularly piques their interest. If the non-readers of the group mentioned in the letter (who should not be attending a book group just to socialize) were discussion leaders, they WOULD read the book. If they choose to attend without reading, they should remain quiet during the discussion and wait to socialize later. Give those lazy nonreaders a task! -SERGEANT-AT-ARMS IN SOUTH DAKOTA DEAR ABBY: I have discovered the joy of audio books. Most of them are classics long out of copyright, but classics are classics because they are GOOD. My local library has a way to access cur-rent books by best-selling authors. I get all of these treasures on my cellphone and listen to them no mat-ter where I am or what I’m doing. Being “too busy” is no longer an excuse for not being well-read. I’ll bet the women in that club would get with the program if they were introduced to audio books. -WIRED BOOKWORM, STILLWATER, OKLA. DEAR ABBY: Here’s how our club handled the problem of members not reading the books: We started charging $5 for failure to do it. The money is held by our unofficial treasurer, and every sum-mer it is used to pay for meals during our yearly summer outing. --BOOK-CLUBBER, TOO DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): A challenge will test your skills and stimulate you mentally and physi-cally. Don’t parade your accomplishments. Use your imagination, but don’t make unrealistic claims. Love is highlighted, and social plans should include people from your past. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t discuss your plans. Not everyone will have the same agenda as you. In order to follow your own path, you are best to go it alone. Keep it simple and don’t make a big deal if you want to avoid interference. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Offer to do what you do best, nothing more. You don’t want to be taken for granted. Family discus-sions and money matters can be resolved if you are prepared to budget and compromise. Don’t let someone’s jealousy push you in the wrong direction. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Turn your home into a drop-in center. The infor-mation you gather from the people who visit your domain will encourage you to branch out into new and exciting directions. A past partner or idea will help you move forward. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll charm your way around any situation you face. Interact with people you can help and whom can help you in return. Mastermind an idea and you will entice others to get involved. Don’t put up with unfair or pushy people. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Work alone to get things done. Interference is likely if you are too vocal about your plans. A new idea can turn into a prosperous venture if you use technology or new methods to speed up the process. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Opportunity is appar-ent. Traveling or commu-nicating with experts will contribute to your plans. Don’t allow laziness to stop you from getting ahead. Look at different lifestyles, cultures or philosophies to spark ideas. Love is high-lighted. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Expect difficulties when dealing with institu-tions, authority figures or those who come from a different background. Listen attentively, but don’t divulge your thoughts or your intentions. Stick to what you know and finish what you start. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Luck is with you, and there is plenty you can accomplish if you are upfront about what you want. Concentrate on finances, contracts and partnerships. Focus on something that is in demand. Forward thinking will bring results. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Protect your interests, your money and your emotional health. A realistic approach to work and how you deal with people you encoun-ter will determine future prospects. Avoid anyone who embraces a lifestyle that isn’t in line with your goals. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): A strict budget will help your money work for you rather than against you. A chance to lower your overhead or make your personal living space more affordable is appar-ent. A change in lifestyle or living arrangements will bring good results. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Problems with friends, relatives or neighbors will cause you to rethink your next move. Don’t argue when the only recourse is to walk away. Take on a hobby or pick up a skill that will ease your stress and bring financial gains. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
