BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comHomeowner Erin Adams, 28, noticed a puddle of water in her laundry room in the enclosed garage of her house on Monday night. Adams called friends and family to come and help with the situation. They constructed a creek made from towels to contain the trail of water. When Adams went to sleep, the towels were still dry, she said. “This morning at maybe 6, it was gone,” she said. “Completely flooded.” A friend of Adams, who was sleeping in the garage, woke up to a “bubbling” extension cord that was completely submerged in the flood. “I was kind of shocked,” Adams said. “I was not expecting it.” Adams immediately switched off the electrical breaker for the house. “It first started in my laundry room which is not against any wall of the house, it’s in the center, so it literally just came from above,” Adams said. “The cement in the foundation of the house just soaked up TREE continued on 3A FLOOD continued on 3A JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterLake City resident Debbie Stewart stands near her mobile home Tuesday where a tree fell on it at about 2:30 a.m. ED SEIFERT/ Columbia County Sheriff’s OfficeBy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comTropical Storm Debby flooded homes and closed local roads and an interstate highway in Columbia County as the storm hung stubbornly offshore over the Gulf of Mexico, bringing more than two feet of rain before making landfall Tuesday evening. Debby promises to bring more winds, relentless rain and flooding to the already saturated state today. The storm will move slowly east across North Florida and push into the Atlantic Wednesday night. Between Sunday and Tuesday, an estimated 30 inches fell on Columbia County, said Harvey Campbell, county emergency management public information officer. An additional 4 to 8 inches was predicted to fall overnight, he said. “It is really a mess out here,” said Lake City resident Donna Cameron, 67. The water was kneehigh in Cameron’s yard at the Quail Heights Country Club, she said. People were paddling the neighborhood in rafts and the flooding was the worst she has seen in her 14 years at the house. “I’m just scared to death it’s going to come completely in the house,” she said. “There’s just not much land in sight out here,” Rainfall total tops 30 inches; more coming DEBBY continued on 5A LAURA HAMPSON/ Lake City ReporterLeslie Sharp (from left), Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserv ation Commission officer, hauls a 4-foot alligator Tuesday aftern oon with help from Lake City Police Department Lt.

Leviticus 19:18 NIV TALLAHASSEE New Citizens Property Insurance chief Barry Gilway was on the job for less than a week when the summers first big tropical storm reached Floridas shores. On just his seventh day on the job, Gilway reported early claims numbers to Gov. Rick Scott and the Cabinet on Tuesday for the first time. Citizens had received 1,351 claims by Tuesday as a result of Tropical Storm Debby, mostly in Hillsborough County and several north of there. The state-backed insurer has struggled to downsize to a point where it can be a true insurer of last resort without at the same time carrying an unafford able risk to its customers. Citizens has more than 1.4 million customers, many who have businesses or homes in some of the most high-risk areas of the state. Officer named to commission TALLAHASSEE A Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services hearing officer is Floridas newest parole commis sioner. Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet appointed Melinda Nisi Coonrod to the three-member Parole Commission on Tuesday. Coonroods appointment is effective Sunday. She replaces Monica David, whose six-year term expires Saturday. The governor and Cabinet selected Coonrod from among three candi dates selected by a nominat ing panel. The other nominees were Richard Davidson, a former deputy secretary in the Department of Corrections and Kim Fluharty-Denson, general counsel for the Department of Financial Services. Coonrod has been a hearing officer handling agriculture licensing cases for more than three years. Before that she taught law at Florida State University and was an assistant state attorney in Tallahassee. 2 fed guards face charges in Florida MARIANNA Two guards are charged with smuggling cell phones, tobacco, synthetic marijuana and other contraband into a federal prison in the Florida Panhandle. Prosecutors on Monday announced the indictments of 28-year-old Steven M. Smith and 30-year-old Mary S. Summers. They were charged with bribery and smuggling contraband into the Federal Correctional Institution at Marianna in exchange for cash and stored-value cards from inmates. If convicted each could face up to 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Prosecutors did not know if they had lawyers and none were listed in court records. 4 charged with parts shipments MIAMI Four South Florida men are facing federal charges involving the illegal shipment of military aircraft parts to Venezuelas air force. Prosecutors in Miami said Tuesday each of the four is charged with mul tiple counts of conspiracy and violations of the Arms Export Control Act. Court documents show that one man, Alberto Pichardo, is a Venezuelan military acqui sitions official and another is a former Venezuelan air force pilot. The parts were intended for Venezuelan F-16 fighter jets, helicopters and other aircraft. Prosecutors say the men did not obtain a required State Department export license before arranging the shipments. Three of the men were set to make initial court appearances later Tuesday, with the fourth scheduled to be in court next week. It was not clear Tuesday if they had attorneys. Haitians appeal to Obama in Miami MIAMI South Floridas Haitian-American community leaders are hoping to get President Barack Obamas attention while hes in the state. Obama will be in Miami later Tuesday to attend two campaign fundraisers. Haitian Women of Miami and the Haitian-American Grassroots Coalition are using Obamas visit to call attention to their pleas for a Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program. The program would fasttrack visas for more than 100,000 Haitians already approved to join fam ily members in the U.S. A similar program exists for Cubans. Dozens of members of Congress from both par ties have urged the Obama administration to fast-track the family-based visas for Haitians. New Citizens head slated to meet top Florida pols LONDON The Spice Girls gave fans what they want what they really, really want Tuesday, reuniting onstage to announce the details of a musical based on their songs. Producers stress that the stage show Viva Forever isnt a biography of the band, but there are plenty of real-life reso nances for the 1990s Girl Power group in its tale of female empowerment and friendship tested by fame. The show opens in London in December. Were going to be introducing a whole new generation to Girl Power, said Victoria Posh Spice Beckham, who attended a media launch alongside Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm and Melanie Brown also known as Baby, Ginger, Sporty and Scary Spice. Viva Forever aims to tap the same vast female fan base as world-con quering ABBA musical Mamma Mia, which has been produced in 14 lan guages and spawned a hit film starring Meryl Streep. The Spice Girls show tells the story of four friends whose bond becomes strained when their band enters a TV talent show. Scored to Spice Girls hits including Wannabe, Spice Up Your Life, Mama and the title track, it was written by comedian Jennifer Saunders cocreator of celebrity-skew ering sitcom Absolutely Fabulous and pro duced by Judy Craymer, the woman behind Mamma Mia. Craymer called the musical, with its focus on female friends and motherdaughter relationships, a heartwarming family tale that touches on the role of media and celebrity in the modern world. Theres just something empowering about wom ens stories that interests me a lot, Craymer said. Saunders who once spoofed the Spice Girls in a mock band called the Sugar Lumps said the show aimed to catch the joy that they brought, their energy and their positiv ity. The Spice Girls said they were delighted with the show, which was unveiled for the press in the grand neo-Gothic hotel where the video for their 1996 breakthrough hit Wannabe in which the band promised to tell you what I want, what I really, really want was filmed. Sixteen years ago when we were writing the words zig-a-zig-ah, we could never have imagined they would be in a West End show, Halliwell said, quot ing the catchy if confusing refrain of Wannabe. Added Chisholm: Its better than we could ever have imagined. They sing it better than us, said Brown. Musical on Motown founder NEW YORK A musi cal based on the life of leg endary Motown Records founder Berry Gordy is set to open on Broadway next year. Producers said Tuesday that Motown, with 81year-old Gordy writing his own book, will open in the spring of 2013 at a Nederlander Theatre to be announced. It will be directed by Charles Randolph-Wright. The songs will include those famous by Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Michael Jackson and The Jackson Five. Says producer Doug Morris: This is an amazing opportunity for everyone to experience the Motown phenomenon through the eyes of the man who lived it. Casting and dates will be revealed later.

By Chris DeVitto Palatka Daily News PALATKA-A committee tasked with helping state agencies solve Northeast Floridas water supply issues had its inaugu ral meeting in Palatka on Monday. The 11-member stake holder advisory commit tee to the North Florida Regional Water Supply met at the St. Johns River Water Management District headquarters. Its task is to work with other stakeholder groups and advise officials with the St. Johns River and Suwannee River water management districts and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection how to help solve regional water supply issues. In an opening state ment, SJRWMD Executive Director Hans Tanzler said the group is ready to work and solve problems both water districts face. The stakeholder com mittee is the committee to give advice and counsel to the Suwannee St. Johns partnership and hopefully this will be a worthwhile journey, he said. Tanzler also said heavy rains from Tropical Storm Debby were something to be thankful for. But we also recognize that rain is not a quick fix it is most welcome, but the fix is a process and that will take time, he said. We need long-term solu tions, because we all know this is not going to be a quick fix. Tanzler said he was thankful for the rains because they will help the Floridian Aquifer recharge and give the District time to analyze its effect on the areas groundwater. If the rain stops, and if the aquifer ceases its trend of improvement in the next few weeks, the St. Johns staff will go to its board and consider going to a water shortage order, or at least a warn ing, he said. For the last three or four board meet ings, we have had it on the agenda and each time we have said it is just not quite there because we are on the verge of rain. But if this stops and we go back to drought, we will be seeking an order. Florida Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Herschel Vinyard Jr. told the group that sharing scientific infor mation across the water management districts will be important for finding a solution to the states future water issues. This shared approach is the reason why we have this North Florida Regional Water Supply partnership, he said. We realize these two water management dis tricts have to work together to solve the issues. Committee members were then instructed by Florida State University consultants and district staff members on following the states Sunshine Laws and committee operating procedures. Members were also instructed on how state statutes regulate water and the development of region al water management dis tricts in the state. Members of the commit tee will also be evaluating ongoing work by both dis tricts to include: evaluat ing regional groundwater decline; efforts to collect and share data between the districts; creating a regional water supply plan shared by both districts; create consistency with minimum flows and lev els between the districts; a aquifer replenishment initiative to infuse new water into the system and recharge the aquifer; and establish a North Florida and South Georgia regional groundwater model. The next meeting of the Stakeholder Advisory Committee has not been set because committee members still need to work out a schedule. District staff said once a schedule has been estab lished, future public meet ings will be posted on its website and advertised.

Stakeholder group holds first meeting The tree had crashed onto the corner of her home, denting the roof and trailing power lines behind it. Stewart said she had not noticed leaking or other kinds of damage to the inside of her home. Stewart moved to her home in 2005. She lives with five dogs. She is currently on disability and unable to afford home insurance. She was not sure what to do to get the tree removed. I called FEMA, she said. I called the Red Cross. The front yard of her home ordi narily showcases a small pond. After the rain on Monday night, her entire yard was turned into one large body of water. Stewart said she walked out into the center of her flooded yard and it rose to her mid-calf. Its flooded all over, she said. Its terrible. Stewart said when she came out of her house in the morning, she couldnt find the paddleboat that usu ally rested near her pond. Her neighbor eventually pointed it out to her. It had drifted all the way to the opposite corner of her yard. I thought it had sunk, Stewart said. Stewart laughed remembering she had stocked the pond with catfish and bream. I could just snag them up, she said. Get a net. All of Stewarts neighborhood, located off of Country Club Road, was flooded. Stewart said police officers went door-to-door early on Tuesday, tell ing neighborhood residents that they were planning on closing the roads. the water and then it came bubbling up. Down in the garage typical signs of flooding were evi dent. Bedroom and living room furniture were hauled up the stairs. Framed photographs were carried out of the flood, water damaged. The line of towels initially used as a bar ricade turned into a soggy trail lying on the floor. The entire room was flooded except, ironically, the shower. Whats crazy about the whole thing is the entire down stairs is flooded but the only part that is not flooded is the shower, and that would have drained out, Adams said. Though she was not expecting the flood, Adams said she was not upset. By LAURA HAMPSON lhampson@lakecityreporter.com Major flooding is forecast for early today at several river locations around Columbia County, damaging homes and cutting off road access. The Suwannee River at White Springs and the Santa Fe RIver at Three Rivers Estates and Fort White are expected to continue rising sev eral feet beyond the flood stage by Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service in Jacksonville. A flood warning con tinues for Columbia and Hamilton counties until Sunday morning. The Santa Fe River near Fort White reached 21.95 feet by 2 p.m. Tuesday but is expected to rise above flood stage, 24 feet, by early Wednesday morning and continue to rise to near 31 feet by Sunday, according to the NWS. At 30 feet major damage and disruption to the community is expected. Roads will be cut off and many homes will be surrounded by water. Boat wash damage to homes will be severe, according to the NWS. The Suwannee at White Springs reached 80.02 feet by 4 p.m. Tuesday, several feet above flood stage, 77 feet, according to the NWS. Last week the river was 53 feet deep. The river will continue to rise to nearly 84 feet, which is considered a major flood stage. At 80 feet water begins to enter homes and secondary roads become flooded. At 81 feet the Suwannee Valley is inundated and second ary roads are closed, according to the NWS. Interstate 75 will close if the river reaches 88 feet, which it did in April 1973, setting a historical record. The Santa Fe River at Three Rivers Estates should rise above flood stage, 19 feet, by Friday morning. It reached 10.26 feet by 4 p.m. Tuesday, but was expected to rise to nearly 25.7 feet by Sunday. Idle speed and no wake restrictions will be in effect at OLeno State Park to the conflu ence of the Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers when it river reaches 17 feet. At 22.3 feet all of Santa Fe Road will be closed. At 26 feet access to area homes is com promised and homes will be severely flooded, according to the NWS. The river areas record crest is 34.20 feet, but last week is was about 8 feet deep at Three Rivers. Weather officials advise residents with inter ests along the river to take action to protect threatened property. However high and fast flowing rivers are not suitable for recreation of any kind.

Immigrationsituation amessy mess ONE OPINION T he Supreme Court says Arizona can fight back in limited ways against illegal immi-gration that threatens fiscal health and more, but that alone won’t fix things. We need comprehensive, national immigra-tion reform, which is to say that we need to do something about those arriving here honestly. That’s better than a million a year who are mostly ill equipped to make it in America. We import more permanent immigrants headed for citizen-ship every year than the rest of the world combined, according to Jan C. Ting, a former assistant commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and the sad fact is that many arrive poor and stay poor. The numbers having children out of wedlock are high, and nothing more evis-cerates opportunity than single-parent homes. Yes, it’s true, we are a nation of immigrants, and that is a fine and wonderful thing, and I am happy to tell you I am German, Swiss, English, Welsh and Scottish, with a touch of Irish and maybe some Italian in me. Just say no to some scorned immigrant group at certain times in our history, and there would be no me. But we are bringing in more than we could assimilate if we tried, and because of rampant multiculturalism, we are not try-ing very hard. There’s lot of hand wringing about growing poverty and income inequality without some of the loudest complainers noticing that current immigration policies are a major factor. “The demographic challenges affecting Social Security and Medicare should not be addressed by further increasing the current historically high level of legal immigration to the U.S., which would only increase the eventual demands on those pro-grams and aggravate other social problems,” wrote Ting in a New York Times opinion piece on Oct. 16 of last year. Now a Temple University law professor, he argued that we should focus on admitting young, English-speaking immigrants with scientific, technical and managerial skills, and I say yes, yes, a thousand times yes. If we could do something like that while holding the numbers down to something reasonable at the same time, we could more easily afford to proffer chances for citi-zenship to those long-term illegal immigrants currently contribut-ing to this society. Several steps would be necessary for such a move to be something less than an invitation for illegals to keep pouring in -an ID verification system for employment, tough penalties against employers who did not abide by the law and increased border surveillance, for starters. Even without reform, something amazing is happening -larger numbers of Mexican immigrants have lately been returning home than have been arriving. Some of this is due to a bad economy that we all hope will get better, as well as to increased federal deportations. But it is true, too, that Mexican birthrates are down, indicating that the numbers knocking on the door could continue to be significantly fewer than in the past. Solutions of the kind we do not need are more politics on the issue from President Barack Obama. The Latino vote is hugely important in this year’s presiden-tial election, and it can hardly have been an accident that he granted amnesty to young illegal aliens without benefit of demo-cratic processes. In a dissent to portions of the Arizona ruling, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia found it more than a bit odd that the court would not let Arizona do more to protect itself. He contrasted that with Obama acting on his own to put Arizona more at risk by ignor-ing parts of the law. I have to tell you, it warms my heart that there is someone in high office in this country as frank and intelligent as Scalia. Reforming immigration Egypt elects an Islamist president, and then what?

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Invasionof Arizonato continue Q The Washington Times Q Orange County Register OPINION Wednesday, June 27, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AOPINION ANOTHER VIEW I n one of the great culmina-tions of the Arab Spring, Egypt for the first time in its long history freely elected a leader, President Mohammed Morsi. Now the question becomes: Exactly what sort of leader did the voters elect? Morsi, 60, was the candidate of the conservative, highly secre-tive and long-outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood has traditionally been vehemently anti-Israel and anti-American, although Morsi holds a doctorate from the University of Southern California. He has pledged to abide by existing treaties, without specifically mentioning the widely unpopular peace treaty with Israel. And the Islamist assured President Barack Obama dur-ing the course of a congratula-tory call that he would respect the rights of women and non-Muslims. This is not quite of a piece with the Brotherhood’s traditional platform. During the campaign, he promised to make the Quran the bedrock of a new constitution in a state that has long had secular, if authoritarian, government. As the presidential campaign wore on, voters’ doubts about him seemingly grew, and he did poorly in the first round of voting and got a bare majority, 51.7 per-cent, in the second round, against a prime minister in the regime of deposed dictator Hosni Mubarak. Neither Morsi nor the Brotherhood has any experience running a government. Egypt’s military has been running the country during the 17 months since Mubarak was ousted. And whether because they don’t trust Morsi or they are reluctant to give up power, or a combination of both, as soon it was clear that Morsi had won, the military issued edicts stripping the presi-dency of most of its powers. Egypt’s Supreme Court indicated it might order new elec-tions for parliament, in which the Brotherhood recently won a plurality. Current Egyptian law bans religious parties, and the court has suggested that the Brotherhood’s political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party, is in fact a religious party and thus could be barred from future elec-tions. Morsi takes over a government that is still in many ways a cre-ation of Mubarak and staffed with his and the military’s loyalists. How and whether Morsi can wrest control of the government from the military, keep peace with Israel and stabilize and reju-venate a near-moribund economy demands political, diplomatic and economic skills of an exceptional order. Egypt, the U.S. and other welldisposed nations can only hope that he is that sort of leader. The alternatives, one of them being a Mideast in chaos, are not pleas-ant to contemplate. T he Supreme Court ruled that the state of Arizona check-ing the citizenship status of people detained or arrested for other offenses is not racial profiling. The court, however, refused to address the core issue: What can states do to protect their borders when the fed-eral government refuses to enforce the law? The ID check provision of S.B. 1070, the Arizona immi-gration statute had drawn the most heat in the public debate. The law’s supporters were branded as racists, and liberal politicians exploited the controversy to pander for money and votes. While the justices noted the legal man-date could be applied in a dis-criminatory way, there was no evidence this had taken place, and that the law on its face was deemed constitutional. Justice Antonin Scalia noted in concurrence that Arizona’s measure, “merely tells state officials that they are autho-rized to do something that they were, by the [federal] government’s concession, already authorized to do.” “In passing S.B. 1070, Arizona sought to enforce existing federal law in a way that the Obama administration wouldn’t,” Rep. Ben Quayle, Arizona Republican, told The Washington Times. He said the ruling was “an incom-plete victory” but “empowers Arizona to enforce the law and keep its people safe.” America is at a crossroads in the desert. The framers of the Constitution didn’t envision a president preventing states from upholding the law. Mr. Obama’s actions eviscerate the Supreme Court’s logic and prove the very point made by backers of S.B. 1070 and similar legislation. When the federal government abrogates its constitutional duty to pro-tect the states, the states must protect themselves. A statute on the books is useless when the occupant of the White House calculates that it’s in his political interest not to enforce it. A merica’s immigra-tion mess has become messier with the U.S. Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision Monday on Arizona’s 2010 crackdown on illegal immi-gration, SB1070. The Obama administration sued to overturn parts of the law, contending that only federal law comprehensive-ly deals with immigration. The court upheld section 2(B), which mandates that state and local police inquire about whether someone law-fully detained is in the country legally, if “reasonable suspicion” warrants the question. This is what some critics have called the “show us your papers” sec-tion of the law. But three major elements of SB1070 were thrown out because, as the court’s majority decision, written by California native Anthony Kennedy, maintained, “Arizona may have understandable frustrations with the problems caused by illegal immigration, but the state may not pursue policies that undermine federal law.” The court overturned these elements: Section 3 said that it’s also a violation of Arizona law to violate federal immigra-tion law. Section 5(C) said it is unlawful for an illegal immi-grant to “knowingly apply for work, solicit work in a public place or perform work as an employee or independent con-tractor.” And Section 6 allowed that a state or local officer “without a warrant, may arrest a person if the officer has prob-able cause to believe ... [the person] has committed any public offense that makes [the person] removable from the United States.” In a statement, President Barack Obama said, “I am pleased that the Supreme Court has struck down key provisions of Arizona’s immi-gration law. What this decision makes unmistakably clear is that Congress must act on comprehensive immigration reform. A patchwork of state laws is not a solution to our broken immigration system – it’s part of the problem.” The president is right on that; but now he’s in campaign mode for the November elec-tion. The time for enacting immigration reform was dur-ing Mr. Obama’s first two years in office, when both houses of Congress were held by Democrats, and the Senate had a filibuster-proof 60-40 majority. Mitt Romney, the pre-sumptive Republican nominee for president, criticized the president Monday for failing to reform immigration law. But Gov. Romney’s own positions on immigration seem to fluctu-ate daily. “What we need is to take the leadership of both houses of Congress, and the committee chairmen, and lock them in a room to work out immigration reform,” Ilya Shapiro told us; he’s a senior fellow in constitu-tional studies at the libertarian Cato Institute. He said reform should include some form of a guest-worker program and a path to U.S. citizenship for those who have been here illegally for many years but haven’t violated other laws. Enacting such processes also would improve law enforce-ment and national security. With the preeminent role of the federal government in immigration affirmed by the high court, national reform by Congress can move to center stage – but, no doubt, not until after voters have their say this November.

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27, 2012 5A5ABy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comSandbags and emergency shelters are available to residents seeking relief for Tropical Storm Debby’s flooding rains. Richardson Middle School, 646 Southeast Pennsylvania St., and the Deep Creek Community Center, 11934 North U.S. 441, are open as emergen-cy shelters for residents evacuating their homes. Additional shelters may be opened up as needed. Both Lake City and Columbia County’s pub-lic works departments are giving away sandbags to protect property from flooding. The county public works department, 607 NW Quinten St., is limiting bags to 25 per vehicle. The city’s public works, 180 NE Gum Swamp Rd., is limit-ing sandbags to 10 to 15 per vehicle. With water continuing to rise, those uncomfort-able in their homes should call a family or friend to stay with during the storm, officials said. The American Red Cross is also opening shelters at Branford Elementary School, 26801 State Road 247 in Branford; Suwannee Coliseum Complex, 1302 11th St. SW in Live Oak; and Veterans of Foreign War, 11404 County Rd. 6 East in Jasper There is very little privacy in a Red Cross shel-ter and the conditions are often crowded, according to a press release from the Red Cross. If you choose to go to a shelter, take food for special dietary needs, over the counter medicine, prescriptions, activities, baby supplies, a change of clothing, toiletries, bed-ding, important paper and identification. Dale Williams, county manager, said the county contacted an engineer for an environmental assess-ment at the landfill, where, if not collected, escaping water can contaminate water sources. Regional flooding is similar to the 2004 hur-ricane season, just without the damaging winds, said Shayne Morgan, county emergency management director. Both Columbia County and Lake City issued local state of emergency resolutions during emer-gency meetings Tuesday afternoon. The resolutions make the city and county eligible for state and fed-eral reimbursement for overtime work, supplies, equipment, road repairs and debris removal, said Wendell Johnson, city manager. At the Columbia County Emergency Operations Center county and state officials were briefed on the tropical storm before county commissioners adopted the resolution. Lake City Police Chief Argatha Gilmore said four families were evacuated from a complex that expe-rienced a washout near a steep ravine on Northwest Archer Street. “I think this community is known by the ways it pulls together in a time of need,” Williams said. The Columbia County Citizen’s Information Center can be reached at 386-719-7530 for non-emergency issues with road issues, assistance with evacuation and other issues with significant rain-fall. The city has also established a public information line, 386-719-5762, for infor-mation about the storm. County Commissioner Ron Williams said flooded areas do not need sightse-ers driving by, creating a wake and making condi-tions worse. Johnson said all officials can do is keep drainage avenues clear and wait for the water to subside.From staff reportsApproximately 100 roads in Columbia County have been closed due to flooding from Tropical Storm Debby. Columbia County officials recommend residents stay in their homes if possible. Campbell says he expects additional roads to be closed over the next few days. “Any rains are damaging now, both to property and the roads and access to homes by residents,” Campbell said. “We are being told to expect an additional four to eight inches between this afternoon and tomorrow night,” he said. n Alfred Markham n Anderson/Sabre (2550 Anderson about to be under water) n April Road n 1553 NE Bascom Norris Drive (Southbound side of Bascom-Flooded West of Sapps Salvage) n Bascom Norris/FAMU n Beadie/Country Club n Birley South of Geeza n Bonita/Tad n Business Point/State Road 4 n Carolyn and Kirby n Chris Street n Clemons/Marion (1039 to DOT) n Colvin and Tammy are under water n Carolyn/Kirby n Colvin Avenue and Tammy Lane n Country Club/Beadie n Old Country Club Road n Country Club/Hillpond n County Line/Lake Jeffery n County Road 131/Just South of County Road 240 (6”) n County Road 240 n County Road 240 at Grassland and Boyette+A31 3223 n County Road 240 n County Road 240/State Road 247 All the way to County Road 131/Tustenuggee n County Road 240/Mary n County Road 245 and A139245A shut down n County Road 25A/US Highway 441 n County Road 252 (just East of Country Club) n County Road 252/Koonville 1850 County Road 252 n County Road 349 and Haltiwanger n Crews Glen and Rivers Road n Cypress Lake on paved part and dirt part South of Charles n Double Run/Sunnybrook n Drake/Kentucky n Drew Grade n Drew Road at US Highway 441 (Do not leave the hard top) Fairway/Egret n Falling Creek/Mershon n Falling Creek and Robinson Branch Fedora and Young Place (water over roadway and up to the houses) n Grassland/County Road 240 Gum Swamp/ McCloskey Haltiwanger and County Road 349 n Herlong/Skyline n Interstate 10 approximately 300 1/2 Both lanes under water Interstate 10 East and West bound lanes closed from I-75 to US Highway 41 n Kentucky/Drake n Kirby and Carolyn n Koonville/County Road 252 n Lake Jeffery/Scenic Lake (area of Woodboro Subdivision) n Lake Jeffery/Ogden Loop (both entrances under water) n Lake Jeffery-off lower springs n Lake Jeffery/County Line South Marion by the high school is under water n Marion/Clemons (1039 to DOT) n Mershon/Falling Creek n Myrtis/Precious n Nash Road A49just South of I-75 n Ogden Loop/Lake Jeffery (both entrances under water) n Old Country Club Road n Old Wire/Scout Glen n Old Wire and Pathfinder n Orbison Drive n 335 SW Otter Vech (tree down but can pass) n Peacock Terrace is under water n Price Creek (1/2 mile North of Chasteen) n Riverside/South of Utah n Rivers Road and Crews Glen n Rossi Pounds Hammock (concrete is washed out) n Saint Margaret from Main to McFarlane n Sapps Salvage on US Highway 100A (Bascom Norris) n Scenic Lake in curve n Sisters Welcome/Lockheed (washed out) n Skyline/Herlong n State Road 47 (in front of the Bingo Station) n State Road 47 (just West of I-75 overpass-by 242) n State Road 47 at US Highway 441 n State Road 47/Business Point n State Road 247/County Road 240 All the way to CR 131/Tustenuggee (3 1/2’ under wate) n State Road 247 in front of the fairgrounds is covered in water n State Road 247 South of Dairy (2 sections approx 20’ long under water) n n Sunnybrook and Double Run n 145 NW Tad Place (not accessible) n NW Tad and NW Manito Road n Tammy Lane and Colvin Avenue n Timber Wolf and Academic Way n 357 Troy n Tustenugge at Roosevelt Dicks n US Highway 100A at Sapps Salvage (Bascom Norris) n US Highway 41 at Interstate 10 n US Highway 441 in front of Club Roadeo n US Highway 441/County Road 25A n US Highway 441 at Drew Grade is 8” under water n US Highway 441 just South of Deep Creek n US Highway 441 and Tustenuggee at Dick’s Trucking n US Highway 441 Just South of Milton’s n US Highway 441 Southbound just South of the fire tower n Ward/SR 47 under water Road closures JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterA car parked at a Columbia County residence is seen p artly submerged Tuesday.Sandbags, shelters available By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comWith more than 100 road closures across Columbia County, many offic-es and services are closed today. Solid waste collection by Veolia Environmental Service will be under a normal schedule today, but the trucks will not service homes on dirt roads to prevent road erosion. Instead there will be large containers in several areas, including County Road 349 and US 441, County Road 245 and Ponds Hammock, County Road 242 and Sisters Welcome Road, and State Road 47, south of Interstate 75. Homes missed by the Tuesday’s service cancellation will be made up on Saturday. Florida Gateway College is closed again today due to flooding around campus and area road closures. The Columbia County School District’s summer school is closed today for students and teachers, but 12-month employees will report. Southside Recreation Center and the Girls Club will be closed. Both the Columbia and Suwannee county courthouses will be closed. City administrative offices are also closed as will the county’s court-house annex. The Partnership for Strong Families is closed in Lake City, Live Oak and Trenton, though Gainesville and Starke locations remain open. The Suwannee River Partnership’s Annual CARES Dinner scheduled for Thursday in Live Oak has been postponed. All Florida State Forests within the Suwannee Forestry Center area are closed until further notice. This includes John Bethea, Twin Rivers, and Big Shoals. The Columbia County Citizen’s Information Center is answered 24 hours a day at 386-719-7530. For questions about waste collection call 386-752-1275. Many offices, services closed today Cameron said. A young girl was swept out of her yard on Falling Creek Road by floodwaters Tuesday, but managed to hang onto a tree against raging flood waters until neighbors reached her with a boat and brought her to safety, according to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office. Residents were evacuated from their homes by boat, as officials urged residents to stay off roads if possible. Fallen tress blocked two lanes on Lassie Black Road, south of Interstate 10, reportedly damaging a bridge. The flood waters brought snakes, alligators and other wildlife out of their normal habitats. Floodwaters inched towards and flooded hun-dreds of homes across the county. Trees, unsup-ported by the saturated soil, collapsed into homes and power lines. Officials scrambled to update resi-dents on road closures, though conditions changed as rapidly as the inches of rain piled up. Rain draining into the Suwannee and Santa Fe riv-ers is expected to swell the rivers well beyond banks and into homes and roads. River levels may rise more than 30 feet from drought conditions last week. Debby made landfall near Steinhatchee Tuesday with top winds of 40 mph and was expected to weaken to a tropical depression by this morn-ing. Debby has drenched Florida for four straight days and forecasters warn that even though the storm is weakening, the threat of flooding remains. Forecasters were expecting the rains to continue, bringing anoth-er 4 to 8 inches across northern Florida. The storm could also bring up to 10 inches of rain to southeastern Georgia. The Florida Highway Patrol closed portions of Interstate 10 Tuesday when troopers reported several areas of flood-ing on a roughly 50-mile stretch. Authorities warned motorists to use extreme caution on other parts of the highway. Roads were washed out in the area and residents tried to salvage belong-ings from flooded homes in low-lying areas. At one point Monday, high winds and flooding worries prompted author-ities to close two major routes over Tampa Bay into St. Petersburg. At least one person was killed Sunday by a torna-do spun off by the large storm system. A young mother, Heather Town, died Sunday when her Highlands County home was lifted off its founda-tion and she and her baby girl were thrown into nearby woods. The moth-er was found clutching the child, who survived. Alabama authorities searched for a South Carolina man who disap-peared in the rough surf. The bridge leading to St. George Island, a vacation spot along the Panhandle, was closed to everyone except resi-dents, renters and busi-ness owners to keep loot-ers out. The island had no power, and palm trees had been blown down, but roads were passable. “Most true islanders are hanging in there because they know that you may or may not be able to get back to your home when you need to,” said David Walker, an island resident having a beer at Eddy Teach’s bar. He said he had been through many storms on the island and Debby was on the weaker end of the scale. Florida Gov. Rick Scott declared a statewide emergency, allowing authorities to put laws against price-gouging into effect and override bureaucratic hurdles to deal with the storm.

ASSOCIATED PRESSFour-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams returns a shot against Barbora Zahlavova Strycova during a first-round women’s singles match at th e All England Lawn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon, England, on Tuesday.Kvivota overcomes shaky start in Wimbledon defenseBy STEPHEN WILSONAssociated PressWIMBLEDON, England — Returning to the court where she won her first Grand Slam championship a year ago, Petra Kvitova overcame a shaky start and a late rain delay Tuesday to open her Wimbledon title defense with a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Akgul Amanmuradova. Four-time champion Serena Williams, meanwhile, returned to the same Court 2 where big sister Venus was upset a day ear-lier and restored family pride by beating Barbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic 6-2, 6-4. The fourth-seeded Kvitova fell behind 3-0 and 4-1 in the first set on Centre Court before running off seven straight games to take command against the 96th-ranked player from Uzbekistan. After Kvitova squandered a match point at 5-3 in the second set, play was suspended and the covers rolled onto the court — the first rain break of the tour-nament. When play resumed half an hour later, it took just three minutes to wrap up the match. After Amanmuradova won the first two points to hold for 5-4, the Czech player closed out the match at love, hit-ting a service winner and two aces and forcing a backhand error. “It was unbelievable to come back here as the defending champion,” said Kvitova, who beat Maria Sharapova in last year’s final. “In the beginning I think I was nervous — first match on the grass it’s always difficult to know what you can expect. I had a lot of mistakes and then I tried to play my game and go forward.” The 6-foot-3 Amanmuradova pushed Kvitova with her big serve, but lacked the consisten-cy on her ground strokes and has now lost in the first round of all five of her Wimbledon appearances. Following Kvitova on Centre Court was two-time champion Rafael Nadal, and he found himself in an early hole just as she had. Nadal was down 4-0 in the open-ing set, but roared back to beat Brazilian left-hander Thomaz Bellucci 7-6 (0), 6-2, 6-3. The Spaniard closed the match with an ace down the middle, his sixth of the day. Nadal, coming off his record seventh French Open title, broke six times and had 35 winners and 18 errors. Having lost in last year’s final to Novak Djokovic, he is bidding for a 12th Grand Slam title. “I’m very happy to be back on the best court in the world and winning,” Nadal TENNIS continued on 3B Fort White 16-under wins district championshipFrom staff reportsFort White Girls Softball Association had three teams compete in the Florida Babe Ruth Softball District 4 Tournament last weekend.

Curtis Mixon and his team of Tony Johnson and Brian Shead got a little revenge in the Wednesday scramble, as they were the last team standing in a three-way playoff for the first-place payout. The Mixon team was in the running for the scram-ble pot on Creeks No. 2, but a 25-foot birdie putt by Danny Harrington can-celed the skin and rolled over the pot. Wednesday Blitz results: Gary Croxton +3, first; Jerry Perkins +2, second; Glenn Sanders +1, third. Friday Dogfight results: Bob McGraw +2, first; Joe Herring and Gerald Smithy +1, tied for second. Closest to pin winners were Ronnie Ash (Ponds No. 3), Smithy (Ponds No. 5), Chet Carter (Creeks No. 2) and Joe Herring (Creeks No. 6). Sunday’s scramble was rained out. The Campus USA Quail Shoot Tournament will once again be rescheduled, as Tropical Storm Debby seems to want to recharge our aquifer for the year this week. After consulting with the title sponsor, the new dates for the tournament will be Aug. 25-26. This will allow for the course to be in great shape and, barring a visit from another storm, should prove to be an exciting event. This week’s Junior Golf Camp also was washed out. The next session is July 25-29. Sign up in the pro shop or call Chet Carter at 365-7097 for information. Bob Wheary doubled up on the competition with +6 to win the Wednesday blitz. Jordan Hale, Ed Higgs, Chris Lewis and Buddy Slay tied for second with +3. Wheary and Higgs both cashed in two skins. Don Howard, Joe Paul, Keith Shaw and Hale had one skin each. Trey Jackson’s eagle earned a first-place tie with Greg Lyons at +6 in the A flight of Saturday’s blitz. Timmy Rogers, Mike Moses, and Donnie Thomas knotted up in second with +5. Jim Carr rolled in two birdies on the back nine to overcome Tom Wade and Randy Sommers by a stroke in the B flight. David Pope earned fourth with a +6. Shayne Edge showed the way in the skins game with eagles on Nos. 9 and 11 and a birdie on No. 6 to claim three winners. Jackson’s eagle stood up for a skin. Tom Wade and Steve Patterson split the remain-ing skins with Thomas. Mike Carr cruised to an easy win with +10 in Sunday’s blitz. Dave Mehl and Steve Thomas were in second with +6. Jerry West claimed fourth with +5. Closest to the hole winners were Buddy Slay on No. 5, Greg Lyons on No. 7, and Eli Witt on Nos. 15 and 17. Four skins were split among Steve Gordon, Witt, Slay and Thomas. In ladies action, Linda Wells fired a net 31.5 to edge Dottie Rogers by a half stroke in the LGA “Divine Nine” contest. Jan Davis, Sally Rivers and Roberta Whitaker tied for third another half stroke back. Another member of The Good Old Boys made personal history this week. Jim Bell added a closing 39 to his red-hot 34 on the front side for a career best round of 73. Match 1: The team of Ed Snow, Howard Whitaker, Jim McGriff and Doyle Worthington posted 8 points for a one-stroke victory over two opposing teams. The team of Don Howard, Dave Cannon, Carl Wilson and Merle Hibbard and the team of Jerry West, Dennis Hendershot, Hugh Sherrill and Bob Wheary tied for second. Match 2: The team of Eli Witt, Bobby Simmons, Bill Rogers, Dan Stephens and Bell scraped out a 2-1 win over the team of Stan Woolbert, Rob Brown, Paul Davis, Jim Stevens and Bill Wheeler. Bell’s 73 was good for medalist honors. His closest pursuers were Wheary (77) and West (78). Woolbert had the best front nine score with 38, one better than Witt’s 39. Snow had the best back nine with a 39. Upcoming events:Q Saturday, MGA Best Ball; Q Monday, Gainesville Junior Golf Tour (course closed until noon); Q July 14, Elks Lodge scramble.

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27, 2012 3B TENNIS: Williams grounds out win Continued From Page 1B ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this Feb. 28 file photo, Matt Kenseth (left) and car owner J ack Roush celebrate in victory lane after Kenseth won the NASCAR Daytona 500 auto race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach. NASCAR points leader Kenseth is leaving Roush Fenway Racing at the end of the season and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. w ill be promoted to his seat in the Sprint Cup Series.Matt Kenseth to leave Roush at end of seasonBy JENNA FRYERAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. — NASCAR points leader Matt Kenseth, one of the longest-tenured drivers in the series, is leaving Roush Fenway Racing at the end of the season. He will be replaced in the No. 17 Ford — the car he has driven for all but one of his 452 career starts — by Nationwide Series cham-pion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Kenseth’s long relation-ship with Ford will appar-ently come to an end. He is believed to be headed to Joe Gibbs Racing, either in Joey Logano’s No. 20 Toyota or a fourth unannounced team. Why? Good question. The team offered no answers in the sudden divorce of one of NASCAR’s longest active relationships. Only Jeff Gordon, with Hendrick Motorsports since 1993, has been with his team lon-ger than Kenseth has been with Jack Roush. “I’d like to thank Matt Kenseth for his many years of loyal service,” co-owner Roush said Tuesday. “Matt has been an integral part of this organization for well over a decade, and we are extremely appreciative of his accomplishments and contributions to the team, and will always consider him a part of the Roush Fenway family.” Kenseth and teammate Greg Biffle are ranked 1st and 2nd in the Sprint Cup Series, clearly poised to make a run at the cham-pionship. Kenseth opened the season with his sec-ond Daytona 500 victory, and has 11 top-10 finishes through 16 races. Kenseth did not respond to a request for comment on Tuesday, but tweeted about his departure. “I’m very thankful to Jack Roush for the opportunities he’s given me over the past 14 years. Together we have enjoyed a lot of success,” he posted. “And as a team we are committed as ever to the remainder of the 2012 season and chasing a 3rd sprint cup title for Jack and RFR.” With Roush, Kenseth has built a career worthy of Hall of Fame consider-ation. Besides the wins at Daytona, he has won 22 Cup races overall, and the 2003 championship. In the Nationwide Series, Kenseth has won 26 races driving for Roush. His relationship with current general manager Robbie Reiser, like Kenseth a native of Wisconsin, dates at least to 1997, when Kenseth first drove Reiser’s No. 17 entry. It was eventu-ally merged into the Roush organization, and Reiser became Kenseth’s crew chief at Roush in 2000, Kenseth’s rookie season. “Matt and I broke into this sport together, learned the ropes and were able to bring home a champion-ship,” Reiser said. “Over the 20 years we have worked with each other, Matt has been a fierce competitor and become a close friend, not only for me, but as a mentor to young drivers like Ricky. I wish Matt nothing but the best for the next phase of his career, and know that we’ll remain close.” There was speculation last weekend at Sonoma that Kenseth was leaving to join JGR, which is in a contract year with Logano. The team also has room to expand to a fourth car, and it is possible Gibbs officials are trying to move Kenseth in and keep Logano at the same time. Team president J.D. Gibbs did not respond to a request for a com-ment Tuesday, and said at Sonoma he could not talk about Kenseth. Jamie Allison, director of Ford Racing, said the blue oval brand is was disap-pointed Kenseth is leaving. “He will be certainly missed by us and the Ford Racing fans,” Allison said. “We are thankful for Matt’s winning efforts and cham-pionship-caliber success with the Roush and Ford racing programs these past 16 years, both on and off the track. We will focus on this year and look forward to more success on the track.” said. “It’s fantastic for me, but I have to improve a lot for the next round.” Serena Williams ground out a shriek-filled win over the 62nd-ranked Zahlavova Strycova, a day after fivetime champion Venus lost her first-round match on the same court in straight sets to Elena Vesnina. In men’s play, fifthseeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga took apart 2002 champion Lleyton Hewitt, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4. The Frenchman, who beat six-time champion Roger Federer last year to reach the semifinals, broke the Australian once in each set and never lost serve. Arizona ends Gamecock’s World Series win streakBy ERIC OLSONAssociated PressOMAHA, Neb. — Andy Lopez finally won his national championship with Arizona. The Wildcats ended South Carolina’s two-year run of dominance at the College World Series with a 4-1 victory on Monday night, rewarding Lopez for persevering through the hard times that came with rebuilding the downtrod-den program he took over 11 years ago. Lopez thought he had a title-caliber team in 2008, but the Wildcats lost a crushing three-game super regional at Miami that he laments to this day.He was devastated again in 2009 when his team failed to make the tournament. A strong recruiting class two years ago formed the core of the team that won Arizona’s first national championship since 1986, and fourth overall. “They’ve just been a joy,” said Lopez, flanked by his key players. “I mean, how many times have I told you I love suiting up with you guys? Said it today before the game. And I really do, I like suiting up with young guys that go to class, go to study hall, hustle on the field, clean up the club-house on their own.” ASSOCIATED PRESSArizona players hoist the trophy after defeating South Carolina 4-1 to win the College World Series in Omaha Neb., on Monday.%632576 WEDNESDAY EVENING JUNE 27, 2012 Comcast Dish DirecTV 6 PM6:307 PM7:308 PM8:309 PM9:3010 PM10:3011 PM11:30 3-ABC 3 -TV20 NewsABC World NewsEntertainment Ton.Inside Edition (N) The Middle Suburgatory Modern FamilyModern Family(:01) Final Witness News at 11(:35) Nightline (N) 4-IND 4 4 4Chann 4 NewsChann 4 NewsEntertainment Ton.Inside Edition (N) Love-RaymondKing of QueensBig Bang TheoryBig Bang TheoryThe 10 O’Clock News (N) Chann 4 News(:35) The Insider 5-PBS 5 -Journal Nightly BusinessPBS NewsHour (N) Nature (DVS) NOVA The universe’s past and future.

DEAR ABBY: My husband, who is 53, talks often about his college days when he smoked marijuana. I tried it once and didn’t like it. Over the past several years he has started smoking it again. I have told him I don’t approve, but he says he does it only occasionally “to take the edge off.” Many times he has smoked when we’re out on bike rides, on road trips or a Sunday drive. It makes me feel like he needs to be high in order to have a good time with me. I have noticed that he is becoming forgetful and is sometimes unable to under-stand information. Is this a midlife crisis he’s going through? How do I get him to stop? -MRS. POTHEAD IN WINONA, MINN. DEAR MRS. POTHEAD: It’s not a midlife crisis. I’m told that the grass that’s available today is far stron-ger than when your hubby smoked it in college. Your husband may be becoming forgetful and unable to process informa-tion because he’s smoking pot A LOT, or because of a neurological problem. Since you can’t convince him to stop, you could benefit from visiting a support group for families and friends of indi-viduals who are addicted to drugs, because marijuana is one, and it appears your husband has become addicted. P.S. Of course, marijuana is also illegal. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: “Jerry,” my husband, has been sending pictures of himself to online dating sites, advertising for a personal relationship with the so-called “right woman.” I feel this is a betrayal of our marriage vows and that it’s cheating. He claims he’s “just looking” at what’s out there. My concern is, why is he looking in the first place? All I get from him is “I love you” and “I want to be with you.” I have seen these dating sites, and I feel hurt and betrayed. Am I wrong to feel this way? -BROKEN-HEARTED LIBRA, LOUISVILLE, KY. DEAR LIBRA: Your instincts are right on the money. You have every right to feel betrayed, hurt and cheated on because your husband’s words don’t match his actions. What he’s doing is not “harmless fun”; it is a danger to your marriage. Do not tolerate it. Run, don’t walk, to a marriage counselor. If your husband won’t go with you, go alone. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I was divorced 20 years ago and have two children from my marriage. My ex-hus-band was black and I am Caucasian. Over the years, when I’ve discussed my children or showed photos of them, people have asked me if they are “mixed,” if they have the same father and if I was married to their father. I presume that some folks assume inter-racial marriage indicates a lack of good judgment, giving rise to further inap-propriate questions. I would love a good, snappy comeback to those questions without stooping to their level of rudeness. I have tried, “Why would you ask me that?” and got even more questions. Any advice or help you could give would be great. -TAKEN ABACK IN INDIANA DEAR TAKEN ABACK: Rather than a snappy comeback, why not simply answer “yes” to all three of those questions and end the conversation? DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Put more time and effort into your home, money and relationships. You will be able to tie up loose ends by keeping your options open and relying on experience. Revisit hobbies, friends or places you used to fre-quent. Romance is in the stars. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Lean on a trusted person who has the same end goal as you. Don’t let added pressure get you down when creativity can bring a workable solu-tion. Don’t misinterpret someone’s interest in you. Ulterior motives are pres-ent. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t get agitated when keeping busy is all that’s required to accom-plish your goals. Losing time over a senseless dis-agreement isn’t worth your time and energy. Success is your ticket to a better place. Focus on enhancing your love life. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Size up your situation and you will be able to find a suitable resolution. Emotional problems may restrict you if you aren’t prepared to find alternative means of taking care of responsibilities that crop up. Listen, observe and avoid opposition. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ve got what it takes to convince others to back your ideas. Be responsible and you will enhance your reputation and position yourself for advancement. You don’t have to buy your way into anything. Use your charisma, not your cash. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do whatever it takes to get your way, but don’t upset someone who can influence your future. Know who to bend to and who to put in place. Don’t follow the crowd regard-ing an unsafe venture. Tactfully decline and do your own thing. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Love, life and fitting in will be what counts. Offer your original ideas, and compliment those who have something to contribute in return. Think big and opportunities will develop with someone whose company you enjoy. A lifestyle change will bring good results. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t take anything or anyone for granted. Keep life simple and keep your overhead small. Stick to the rules and focus on budgeting and saving for something special. Deal with competition gra-ciously. Positive action and travel will help you excel. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Rethink your plans before you share them with someone in a high position. Be real-istic and don’t take on too much. Falling short of your expectations will make others question your ability. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Concentrate on making financial gains. Don’t take on responsibili-ties that will not bring you the returns you need to get ahead. Impulsive deci-sions or moves must be avoided. Find out where you stand regarding friends, relatives and part-ners. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Fortuitous offerings will come from an unex-pected source. Contracts, settlements, promises and relationships will turn in your favor. Changes at home will result in greater stability. Love and self-improvement should be arranged. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stay on top of every sit-uation you face. Opposition and underhandedness will develop if you let your guard down. Dishonesty from you or someone else will turn a small problem into a big fiasco. Focus on home, family and helping others. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
