Officials with the Columbia County Building and Zoning Department urge residents to take important steps to protect themselves from unprofession-al and illegal operators. Potential schemes involve con-artists phoning victims, going door-to-door to damaged homes and asking for person-al information such as Social Security or bank account numbers. Workers may show up at flood-damaged homes and recommend expen-sive or unnecessary repairs. Residents are cautioned against signing contracts or making down pay-ments without first receiving written estimates from contractors, and to avoid offers which seem too good to refuse. In addition, the written contract may contain a clause allowing a lien to be placed on your home should the bill not be paid. Residents with questions about the legitimacy of companies claiming to be specialists in home restoration and repairs can contact the department at 758-1008. Residents can also call the Florida Department of Professional Regulation in Tallahassee at 850-487-1395 or verify the license of a business online at www.myfloridalicense.com. Other scammers may offer to expedite and process disaster applications for a fee. Before residents are eligible for federal disaster assistance, the county must be deemed a disaster by county commissioners, Gov. Rick Scott and President Obama. Now that Columbia and four thoer counties have been declared a fed-eral disaster area, representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Small Business Administration will establish field offic-es here to take applications from resi-dents who suffered from damages to apply for a variety of aid programs. Local officials are hopeful that a disaster declaration will be approved within a week. Federal and state disaster inspectors would never recommend specific repairs and would never charge a fee for any inspection. Federal officials do also carry photo identification, which you may request to see. Florida Power & Light is warning customers about a bill payment scam that is spreading through social media and word-ofmouth and is believed to be part of a nationwide phishing scam. Scammers are telling customers that a third party, in most cases the Federal Government or President Obama, will pay their utility bill in exchange for their personal information, such as social security numbers and personal banking information.

BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comE asing down the Santa Fe at idle speed, Officer Dwain Mobley with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is on duty, patrolling a nearly deserted river. Mobley, who has worked in the tri-county area with FWC for the past 17 years, says he has never had a Fourth of July holiday off. “This is by far the slowest it has been,” he said. With the flooded banks of the Santa Fe dozens of feet past normal levels, Mobley said there has been a 95 per-cent reduction in boat traffic. Its swollen waters have engulfed gazebos, docks and large boats. The bow of a 22-foot vessel lies swamped, peeking just barely from the murky waters. Mobley said the boat was resting on the banks prior to the flood. “The river system is very narrow usually,” Mobley said. Dislodged docks and trees drift down the river. A lone turtle rests in the warped divot of a sun-baked dock. Mobley said he saw a dock over 25 feet long bro-ken lose and floating down the river. The dock disappeared. He said he had not seen it since days before. “It’s just cruising down the river somewhere,” he said. The color of the water has also changed since the storm. “It’s usually ice blue, crystal clear.” Now it is a dark, tannic water. Mobley said he has run into quite a few people who come to the river for vacation, somehow without knowledge of the flooded conditions. He has spotted people swimming in the river or riding in kayaks. However, he said the conditions are not conducive for recre-ation at this point. Though the water looks peaceful on the surface, underneath is a swirling system of currents dodg-ing in and out of fallen trees and other submerged debris. Mobley said he is quick to caution swimmers who have decided the river is ripe for recreation. “You can’t make people put their life jacket on, but I always advise them,” he said.

SCAM continued on 3A SANTA FE continued on 3AFundraiser planned Page 3A FWC keeping watch on rivers By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comColumbia County residents will soon receive federal disaster money and emergency resources to help recover from Tropical Storm Debby. President Barack Obama declared Tuesday a major disaster area in Baker, Bradford, Columbia, Pasco and Wakulla counties. Assistance includes grants for temporary hous-ing and home repairs and low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses. Other programs will help individuals and business owners recover from the flooding. The Federal Emergency Management Agency said they are reviewing other areas affected by the storm and that more counties could receive disaster dec-larations. FEMA does not provide assistance that is available through insurance, but the agency may be able to assist with losses not covered by insurance. How to applyResidents and business owners who sustained loss-es in Columbia County can begin applying for assis-tance today by registering online at www.disasterassis-tance.gov, by web enabled mobile device at m.fema.gov or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA(3362) or 1-800-462-7585 (TTY) for the hearing and speech impaired. The toll-free telephone numbers will operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week until further notice. FEMA will soon be setting up a Disaster Recovery Center in Lake City where residents can apply for assistance, get information about FEMA or other disas-ter assistance programs or ask questions related to their case. The center’s location and hours will be announced once finalized. Homeowners should file a claim with their insurance company as soon as pos-sible, as failure to do so may affect eligibility. Applicants registering for aid should be prepared to provide basic information about themselves including name, permanent address, Social Security Number, phone number, insurance coverage, description of losses caused by the disas-ter and any other informa-tion to help substantiate losses. Registering online is one of the best methods to complete an application and avoid busy signals on the telephone. If information is gathered prior to starting the application, the process should take approximately 20 minutes. How toapply forassistance RELIEF continued on 6A

Government is the problem.”President Ronald Reagan TALLAHASSEE — A new Spanish-language tele-vision ad is criticizing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney over Florida’s attempt to remove potentially ineligible voters from the rolls. MoveOn.Org plans to run the ad in Tampa, Miami and Orlando starting Thursday. The group would not give a precise idea of how many times that ad would run, saying instead it would run multiple times over a three-day period. The ad questions why Romney has not criticized the voter purge initiated by Gov. Rick Scott, saying it unfairly targets Hispanics. The U.S. Department of Justice sought to block the effort, but a judge last week sided with the Scott admin-istration. The Scott administration has defended the push to identify non-U.S. citizens who registered to vote, say-ing the state voter rolls need to be accurate.Woman bites off tip of man’s finger TAMPA — Hillsborough deputies say a 22-year-old man wielded a kitchen knife at his pregnant girlfriend and punched her in the face. But she fought back and allegedly bit off the tip of his finger in self-defense. The incident happened Monday. Officials charged Reginald Gefferie with aggravated battery on a pregnant female and false imprisonment. He was taken to the hospital but doctors couldn’t reattach the finger tip. Gefferie is now in jail without bail. It’s unclear whether he has retained an attorney.Bear nabbed at Fla. theme park TAMPA — A wild black bear that was nabbed in a tree at the Busch Gardens theme park on Tuesday is the same bear that was cap-tured recently on Sanibel Island, wildlife officials say. This is the second time in two weeks that the young male bear has been tranquil-ized. Gary Morse, a spokesman from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said the bear’s journey began a little more than a year ago in Fort Myers, more than 130 miles south of Tampa. The bear swam from Fort Myers over to Sanibel Island, Morse said. It lived there in a wildlife preserve for many months without a problem. “Then as young male bears tend to do, it roamed, probably looking for a mate,” said Morse. The bear began to appear in the more populated parts of Sanibel, and on June 20 — after months of trying to capture the creature — state wildlife agents shot him with a tranquilizer gun. The agents drove the bear nearly 200 miles to the north, to a wildlife preserve in Hernando County. “We thought we had taken him far enough north that he wouldn’t want to come back south,” said Morse. But when a bear with an orange ear tag was spotted in Spring Hill — a city south of the wildlife preserve — last week, wildlife experts knew who it was. “We’d better get prepared,” Morse said at the time. Wildlife officers again tranquilized the bear with a dart gun and loaded him into a truck. He’s headed to Apalachicola, which is 270 miles north of the park. The region contains about a mil-lion acres of bear habitat in a wildlife management area, said Morse. “He’s not likely to head back this way,” Morse added. “This bear is simply trying to find himself a mate and a place to live.”SeaWorld raises ticket prices ORLANDO — SeaWorld Orlando is raising ticket prices. The new ticket prices went into effect Tuesday, bringing the cost of a one-day adult ticket to $84.99. That’s an increase of $3. The Orlando Sentinel reports that multi-day passes pairing admission to SeaWorld and Busch Gardens in Tampa will rise by $10 to $134.99. Passes combining visits to SeaWorld, Busch Gardens and Aquatica will increase by $10 to $144.99. Orlando-based SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment owns all three parks. This is the first increase for SeaWorld’s Florida parks since September. SeaWorld officials told the Sentinel numerous dis-counts and perks are avail-able. Single tickets include a second day free, and Florida residents can get discounts when purchas-ing tickets online. The increase comes about a month after Disney and Universal Orlando raised ticket prices. Spanish-language ad targets Romney over purge LOS ANGELES — The new Spider-Man has launched with the same midnight magic as the old one. “The Amazing SpiderMan” pulled in $7.5 million from its debut screen-ings Tuesday just after midnight. According to distributor Sony Pictures, that matches the amount that “Spider-Man 3” took in from its first midnight screenings in 2007 on the way to what was then a record $151.1 million open-ing weekend. Midnight screenings generally have become bigger business since then, hitting a peak as fans shelled out $43.5 million for midnight shows of the “Harry Potter” finale last summer. While “The Amazing Spider-Man” is well back in the pack by comparison, its midnight debut hints at strong box office through the Fourth of July week-end, with industry expecta-tions as high as $120 mil-lion in its first six days.Couple visiting Disney every day ANAHEIM, Calif. — A Southern California couple has passed the halfway mark in their quest to visit Disneyland every day this year. Magic Kingdom marathoners Tonya Mickesh and Jeff Reitz hold annual passes. Both were out of work when they decided that instead of moping at home, they would cheer themselves up with a challenge — going to Disneyland all 366 days in 2012, beginning on New Year’s Day. The Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/Of14uy ) says they hit the halfway mark on Sunday. Mickesh now has a full-time job, but Reitz says she still joins him at night. They celebrated her birthday there last weekend.Essence Fest kicks off NEW ORLEANS — One of the premier music fes-tivals celebrating black culture and music is branching out, extending its footprint in its 18th year to embrace the next generation of artists while still trumpeting industry veterans such as Aretha Franklin. The Essence Music Festival has added a fourth day to its concert series in New Orleans. On Thursday — its opening day — Essence will focus solely on youth, including rapper Diggy Simmons, the Disney Channel’s Coco Jones, the OMG Girlz and New Orleans’ own The Roots of Music. Essence runs through Sunday with performances set for the Superdome. “I’ve never been, but I know it’s important,” said 14-year-old Coco, who was discovered on the Disney Channel’s “Next Big Thing” and starred in its TV musi-cal movie “Let It Shine,” which aired last month. Coco will debut music from her yet-to-be-named album due out next year. She plans to deliver a high-energy show packed with tight choreography and some theatrical elements.

er levels than it is now. The way I look at it, its God giving us a good washing out, Koehler said. We need the water. Mobley said the water level is extremely high, but it is not a surprise to most riverside residents. Residents that stay here, they know its going to flood, he said. Mobley and five other FWC officers patrol the land and waterways of Columbia, Hamilton and Suwannee counties. An additional 14 officers have been brought in to assist in the aftermath of the flood. FWC officers look to ensure the safety of residents as well as protect Florida wildlife. In flooded conditions, issues such as looting become increasingly com mon. The officers shifts have been longer than usu ally; Mobley said he has been working 12 hours a day. When he does see peo ple on the river, Mobley said they are grateful for the officers active pres ence. They are happy to see us, he said. From staff reports Lake Citys Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration will explode tonight at the Columbia County Fairgrounds, providing one of the largest Independence Day celebrations in North Florida. The event is organized by the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce and title spon sored for the eighth con secutive year by the Lake City Reporter. The event will feature live music beginning at 5 p.m., but numerous food and beverage vendors offering concessions for sale. A kids games area with bounce houses will also be avail able. Fireworks begin at 9:20 p.m. A crowd of more than 25,000 is expected to attend the event at the fairgrounds. The event is free, but those attending are asked to bring a donation of nonperishable food or toiletry items that will be collected by the Florida Gateway Food Bank for distribution solely to Columbia County flood victims. Catholic Charities, the administra tor of the Food Bank, will have a large truck at the fairgrounds complex for visitors to leave their dona tions. This is a time to cel ebrate the Fourth of July and remember to help your friends and neigh bors knocked down by all the flooding by donating a few canned goods, said Todd Wilson, publisher of the Lake City Reporter and president of the Chamber of Commerce. We hope everyone will come out and relax for a little while and enjoy the music and the fireworks. Beginning at noon today, a portion of Southwest Bascom Norris Drive through the fairgrounds complex, immediately in front of the rodeo arena, will be closed to traf fic. Visitors may drive to the parking areas from Branford Highway via the open portion of Southwest Bascom Norris Drive that will end at the parking lot at the rodeo arena, or via Southwest Mary Ethel Lane that will provide access to the normal fairgrounds fenced-in area that will be used for parking. Lake City Police Department person nel will provide traffic con trol for the crowd moving into and out of the fair grounds complex following the fireworks. LCPD urges everyone interested in the fireworks show to make the effort to park at the designated areas at the fairgrounds. No parking will be allowed on the shoulders of nearby roads because of safety concerns and the need to keep main thoroughfares clear for emergency vehi cles assisting residents. The fireworks event couldnt come at a bet ter time for Lake City and Columbia County, said Dennille Decker, the Chambers executive direc tor. It will be a break from the reality we have all been facing with the flooding. It will be a time we can just relax and celebrate being Americans.

Unauthorized use of account information is illegal and any payment applied to utility bills will be reversed. FPL has notified the State Attorney Generals Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and the U.S. Secret Service Miami Electronic Crimes Task Force about the scam. It is not FPLs practice to come to custom ers homes without making arrangements ahead of time, to solicit personal information over the telephone unless customers initiat ed the contact, or to send emails threatening to close accounts if customers do not take the immediate action of providing personal information. All FPL employees carry a photo identifi cation badge and contractors have either a contractor badge or work order letter. Ask to see it if you are in doubt. To avoid being scammed after the flood: n Use reliable, licensed contractors Contact the Columbia County Building and Zoning Department for information on local contractors or the states Attorney Generals Consumer Protection to see if the contract ing firm has complaints against it. n Get a written estimate Be sure to obtain a written estimate for the job and read the fine print. Compare the services and prices of several reputable contractors before making a final decision. Hire local contractors, if possible. n Check references Contractors should be willing to provide the names of previous customers. Call some former customers who had similar work done to make sure they were satisfied with the job. n Ask for proof of insurance Make sure the contractor carries general liability insur ance and workers compensation. If the contractor is not insured, the homeowner may be liable for accidents that occur on the property or to the house/building. n Insist on a written contract A complete contract should clearly state all the tasks to be performed, all associated costs and the payment schedule. Never sign a blank con tract or one with blank spaces. Make sure the contract clearly states who will apply for the necessary permits or licenses. n Get any guarantees in writing Any guarantees made by the contractor should be written into the contract. The guarantee should clearly state what is guaranteed, who is responsible for the guarantee and how long the guarantee is valid. n Have work inspected If excavation work is being performed (e.g., sewers or basement walls) make sure a qualified inspector examines the work before it is hidden from view to avoid similar problems in the future. n Make final payments when the work is completed Do not sign completion papers or make the final payment until the work is completed to your satisfaction. A reputable contractor will not threaten you or pres sure you to sign if the job is not finished properly. n Pay by credit card Avoid on-the-spot cash payments. The safest route is to write a check to the contracting company. A reason able down payment is 30 percent of the total cost of the project, to be paid upon initial delivery of materials. n Cancel the contract if necessary Canceling a contract should be done within three business days of signing. Be sure to follow the procedures for cancellation that are set out in the contract. Send the notifica tion by registered mail with a return receipt to be signed by the contractor.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com OPINION Wednesday, July 4, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AOPINIONA mericans have been justifiably transfixed by the outcome of the historic health-care case at the Supreme Court. But when it comes to the near-term eco-nomic and political outlook for the country, the ruling was not necessarily the most important event of the last few days. That honor may belong instead to the summit meeting of European leaders in Brussels. With unemployment in the 17 nations that use the euro as a common currency now at 11.1 percent, and the risk of global spillover effects mounting, the whole world’s prosper-ity depends on the ability of Europe’s fractious governments to manage the crisis and forge a long-term solution. Alas, the meeting ended Friday with what was, by now, a familiar blend of tantaliz-ing promises and ominously unresolved questions. First, the hopeful part: At the urging of France and Italy, Germany agreed to assure investors who buy Spain’s sovereign debt that they will get paid back on equal terms with the backers of European bailout funds — that is, Germany and its taxpayers. In addition, German Chancellor Angela Merkel allowed the $633 billion bailout fund known as the European Stability Mechanism to capitalize Spain’s troubled banks directly, rather than through the Spanish government. Finally, the Europeans agreed to set up a continent-wide bank supervi-sion authority by the end of 2013, which also could help restore confidence in shaky financial institutions. Spain’s debt crisis represents the most critical short-term threat to Europe’s economic stability, and, taken together, these steps should help that country access the capital market at lower cost. Many expect the European Central Bank to cut interest rates later this week to help spur growth, as a reward of sorts for what was agreed. Now, the ominous bit: In deference to anti-bailout opinion at home, Ms. Merkel continues to rule out the one measure that could re-establish confidence on a more permanent basis: joint eurobonds. Pooled respon-sibility for debt would once again enable the likes of Spain and Italy to fund themselves on more favorable terms, since the debt would enjoy Germany’s partial backing. What’s more, Ms. Merkel’s government has not fully signed off on the modifications to the bailout fund, since that appar-ently requires a favorable ruling from Germany’s constitutional court. Meanwhile, Britain is wor-ried about what a European bank supervision authority would mean for its financial center in London; and there is still no plan for European deposit insurance to prevent bank runs. In short, for all the talk of “more Europe” from Ms. Merkel and others, there is still not enough Europe, in the sense of an irrevocably united political body, with free cross-border movement of labor and capital, to support a stable single cur-rency. As it happens, the cre-ation of such a polity was one of the signal achievements of the Constitution that the U.S. Supreme Court interpreted in the health-care case last week. Europe is still a long way from achieving that. And time is run-ning out to prevent its inability to do so from impoverishing both that continent and its partners around the world. D oes being a suc-cessful business-man in this anti-Wall Street atmo-sphere disqualify one from being president of the United States, even when one’s experience includes the gover-norship of a major state? And, if so, does a background of community organizing, two years in the U.S. Senate, and failure to fulfill a promise of massive change in four years deserve a second term in the Oval Office? President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign seems to be based at least at the moment on persuading voters that both do: That Republican Mitt Romney’s claims of turning around the unemployment rate are hollow because of his man-agement of Bain Capital, which was instrumental in outsourc-ing huge numbers of American jobs. At the same time, Romney retorts that Bain didn’t do the outsourcing but only represent-ed companies that did. It seems to me that Obama’s charges overlook the fact that, for the last two decades, the downsizing by American busi-ness executives to produce more efficient, streamlined companies has been a way of life enhanced by technology and often a necessity to survive. A key factor, obviously, is the need to find the lowest worker costs. That practice began in the 19th century when textile and shoe manufacturers fled the Northeast to the low wages of the South. China’s current business renaissance originally was based on cheap labor, but its economy has slipped some as workers -seeing the success they have helped bring about -have begun demanding a larger share of the pie. This is simple economics combined with human nature. Jobs are constantly on the move, as the Chinese are beginning to find out. In answering the Romney allegations, Obama has fallen back on the time-tested cam-paign tactic of noting that most of the blame for his failures in the first term resides with his predecessor. That has worked in the past but usually in better economic times. When voter pocketbooks ache, they don’t have much sympathy for the excuse that “George did it” -at least that’s what Romney is counting on as he campaigns on the old politi-cal axiom of whatever happens on your watch is your responsi-bility. Therefore, the current lack of new jobs and forecast of even more disruption in the job market are all Obama’s prob-lem to deal with. It seems to me, fueling the current attacks on business by discounting an opponent’s experience is not a terribly responsible thing to do. But then, neither was running around four years ago contend-ing that the world would change dramatically because being a onetime community organizer who took a swipe at teaching constitutional law and a brief political career was just the kind of experience needed to put the nation right again. But the voters bought into it. The fact is, the most qualified person four years ago was Hillary Clinton, as she has shown time and again by her masterful job as the nation’s top foreign policy official. It is not unusual these days for the president’s opponents to be heard openly opining that “We would have been far better off with Hillary,” an astounding comment given their original animosity to her. The president’s ill-chosen remark a while back -that it is government employees who are hurting and not those in the public sector, where things were better -still is reverberat-ing among the jobless. In the current atmosphere of increas-ing dismay, it is easier to believe that Romney’s very wealth stems from his lack of sensitiv-ity about that class of individu-als who have given up entirely on finding a job. Certainly that was the case when George H.W. Bush lost the presidency under similar circumstances but dur-ing times that were far less dire. The successful Clinton slogan “It’s the economy, stupid” car-ries far more meaning now. It is difficult to buy into the argument that Romney would do less to paint a better job landscape. When comparing experience for the White House, one must obviously come to the conclusion that, at this juncture, the experience of the leading contender for the job four years ago, Barack Obama, had far less promise, and that what has occurred since has shown what that can mean in tough eco-nomic times. T oday is Independence Day in America, the day we pause and cel-ebrate liberty and freedom and remember the group of men who on July 4, 1776, put quill and ink to paper and signed the Declaration of Independence. It also leads us to be thankful for our military members through the generations, the ones who have fought to keep us liberated and free. Even in 1776, the Declaration meant nothing without defeating the British in the Revolutionary War. In the past few weeks, we have noticed residents of this country squabbling at an increased pitch, feverishly dis-cussing everything from the Supreme Court ruling affirm-ing President Obama’s national healthcare plan to the ongoing war in Afghanistan to the slowly improving economy. It’s an elec-tion year, so the discussions and the volume will only increase. None of these issues will topple this country. Any of these may open a door down a difficult path, but none of these will topple the great and strong America we live in. Good men and women will rise up and steady this country when it finds itself on uneven ground. The halls of independence in 1776 were noisy with dis-agreements and wild ideas and opinions that ranged from the perspective of northern city dwellers to southern planters. They discussed the status quo and bold new frontiers. They moaned about taxes. They con-sidered liberty and death. They held together and pushed on for the good of the new America — a country founded as One Nation Under God. That’s the foundation — then and now — that must be remembered as we press forward. Spirited discussion never brought down a free society. It only strengthens it. The more people talk, the more they become awakened and the more they read and learn about the issues of the day, the more involved they become. They vote.And freedom rings clear as the Republic is strengthened. Dan K. Thomasson Q Dan K. Thomasson is former editor of Scripps Howard News Service. On June 28, 2012 in the Jackie Taylor Building, the grandest party of them all, the Tea Party, had all four candi-dates for the Columbia County School Superintendent position speak at our meeting. After they spoke there was a ques-tion and answer period. It was my honor to calmly ask all 4 of them the following Yes/No question: “Gentlemen, Am I correct when I proclaim to you that 100% of the students registered to attend Columbia High School this coming semester are created in the image of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit and that none evolved from a hominid?” To my disappointment, all four of the candidates gave a long-winded, more than 1/2 minute, more than 25 words response to a straightforward Yes/No question concern-ing Columbia High School students! How hard was it for the four candidates to say one word of “Yes” or one word of “No,” then pass the micro-phone onto the next candidate? It was impossible for them to say one word, then pass the microphone. Their answers fooled very few if any of us Tea Party members in the audi-ence. The Tea Party members I talked to after the meeting saw right through the candidates’ politically correct sidestep responses (PCSR). It was as if the microphone was glued to their hands and they could not let go until they had given a PCSR to a Yes/No question. Just imagine me asking the following question: “Did Tropical Storm Debby dump more than one inch of rain on 100% of the grounds of Columbia High School?” They might give a PCSR to that question, like “School was out for the week, so I believe the rain gauge was left in the rain locker so, and, and, ah...”. I invite the readers of the Lake City Reporter the best newspaper this neck of the woods or swamp, to ask the 4 candidates the above Yes/No question then smile when they give you a PCSR.

Serena tops defending champ Kvitova at WimbledonBy MATTIAS KARENAssociated PressWIMBLEDON, England — The sounds were new to Serena Williams, and the feeling on Centre Court was different. The result, though, was quite familiar. Playing under the retractable roof for the first time on the court where she’s had some of her biggest tri-umphs, Williams defeated defending champion Petra Kvitova 6-3, 7-5 to reach her eighth Wimbledon semifi-nal on Tuesday. “I loved it. I loved the sound,” Williams said. “The sound of the balls. It’s kind of like a whoosh and a pop. It’s really cool. It’s almost like a video game, but you’re playing. It kind of flies through and you hear it when it lands. ... I really like playing indoor.” Her game seems wellsuited for it. While rain disrupted play elsewhere at the All England Club, Williams used another commanding serving performance to overpower the fourth-seeded Czech. Williams hit 13 aces — including three in the last game — to end Kvitova’s 11-match winning streak at Wimbledon. Her last loss here also came against Williams, in the 2010 semifinals. “You can’t play a defending Wimbledon champion or Grand Slam champion and not elevate your game,” Williams said. “I had to weed out the riffraff and just get serious.” The American four-time champion seized control by breaking Kvitova for 4-2 in the first set and then never gave her opponent a chance to get back in the match. She saved a set point when trailing 5-4 in the second with a hard serve down the middle that Kvitova could return only into the net. That was the only break point the defending cham-pion earned, as Williams won 86 percent of the points on her first serve. “I think that’s why she’s the great champion, because she knows what she needs to play in the important points,” Kvitova said. “It’s really tough to beat her.” Williams, who hit a Wimbledon-record 23 aces in a fourth-round win over Zheng Jie of China, is try-ing to become the first woman 30 or over to win a Grand Slam title since Martina Navratilova won Wimbledon in 1990. The 30-year-old Williams will face either second-ranked Victoria Azarenka or Tamira Paszek of Austria. Angelique Kerber advanced to her first Wimbledon semifinal by beating fellow German Sabine Lisicki 6-3, 6-7 (7), 7-5 in a match under the roof. Lisicki, who knocked out Maria Sharapova, saved three match points in the second set and served for the match at 5-3 in the third. But Kerber rallied to win the last four games, finally converting her fifth match point when Lisicki sent a backhand wide. Outside Centre Court, it was a start-and-stop day at Wimbledon, as the persis-tent rain continued to cause headaches for organizers. Play was delayed for about 30 minutes on the outside courts in the morn-ing, and two more rain delays interrupted play for a total of about three hours after that. Andy Murray and Florian Mayer still found enough time between the show-ers to wrap up suspended matches and reach the quarterfinals. In another fourth-round match that was suspended on Monday, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga over-came an ailing back and a one-set deficit to beat American Mardy Fish 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-4, 6-4. David Ferrer also advanced in the first match on Centre Court, where organizers again came under scrutiny for their use of the retractable roof. Their decision to open and then close it caused the start Williams reaches semifinals for eighth time. ASSOCIATED PRESSSerena Williams of the United States (right) is congratula ted by Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic after a quarterfinals match at the All England La wn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon, England, on Tuesday. TENNIS continued on 2B By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — History was made at the Babe Ruth Small League Championship as Fort White’s 15-under all-star team brought home the championship. In its 12-year history, Fort White had never won the event it plays host to. That all came to an end on Tuesday as Fort White picked up two victories to claim the championship. Fort White defeated Jefferson, 11-7, in a semifi-nal contest while Marietta Bullsbay picked up a win over Middleburg in order to face Fort White in the final. Fort White jumped on Jefferson early with a 9-1 lead, but had to hang on late in order to reach the final. “We have to realize that the games not over and all it takes is a couple of bad bounces,” Fort White head coach Donnie Wilkinson said. “We got through the first few innings and thought it was over, but we still have our main goal in front of us.” The main goal was winning the tournament and Fort White was focused from the beginning in a 9-4 win against Marietta Bullsbay. “We are ecstatic,” Fort White assistant coach Mike Price said. “This is the first time we’ve done this in his-tory and it’s always tough, but we were on a mission.

Ferrer needed less than two hours to beat del Potro 6-3, 6-2, 6-3. Murray made the last eight for the fifth straight year by beating the 16th-seeded Marin Cilic 7-5, 6-2, 6-3, while Mayer ousted Richard Gasquet of France 6-3, 6-1, 3-6, 6-2. American qualifier Brian Baker’s remarkable run ended with a 6-1, 7-6 (4), 6-3 loss to 27th-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany. “We stopped, obviously, a lot,” Murray said. “You’re always a little bit edgy when you come out after a rain delay when you have the momentum with you. You stop, and then you come back out, and it feels a bit like you start from scratch again. I needed to serve well today and I got a lot of free points that helped me out.” The 126th-ranked Baker was trying to become the third American qualifier to reach the quarterfinals at the All England Club. He was playing in Wimbledon’s main draw for the first time after being off the tour for more than five years because of a series of oper-ations, one on his right elbow. He was ranked 458th at the start of 2012 and will next week rise inside the top 100. “It’s been an unbelievable run,” Baker said. “Can’t be too upset about that, even though as a competitor (I’m) definitely pretty frustrated right now. ... Hopefully I’ll learn from it and have more opportunities.” On Monday, top-ranked Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Mikhail Youzhny were the only men to complete their round of 16 matches. Mission accomplished.” Trace Wilkinson, Tyler Wendel and Austin Dupree combined to pick up the win on the mound for Fort White in the semifinal con-test. Dupree and Wilkinson each had two hits in the contest along with Willie Carter. Kyle Sharp and Wendel provided the team’s other hits. Rhett Willis picked up the win in the champion-ship game after striking out six batters in five innings of work. Willis also had a good day at the plate with a dou-ble and a walk. Wendel led the team in hits with three in the con-test, but the biggest hit came from Carter. Carter connected with a two-run homer to spark Fort White to victory. Others with hits include: Wilkinson, Sharpe, Dupree and Alex Mitchell. Fort White’s next mission will be capturing the state championship. The tournament takes place on July 12-15 in Live Oak. ACC announces 12-year deal with Orange BowlAssociated PressGREENSBORO, N.C. — The Atlantic Coast Conference is remaining tied to the Orange Bowl. The league on Tuesday announced a 12-year agree-ment with the bowl begin-ning after the 2014 season. It says details on the oppo-nent and broadcast partner will come later. The ACC has sent its champion to the South Florida-based bowl every year since 2006, and this announcement means that relationship will continue when the Bowl Subdivision makes the switch to a four-team playoff in two years. “As we look ahead to the future of postseason college football, this will further an already beneficial part-nership for both organiza-tions,” ACC Commissioner John Swofford said. “The Discover Orange Bowl has a rich history of prestige, is located within the league’s footprint and is a great des-tination for our student-ath-letes, alumni and fans. In addition to our continued partnership, we are very pleased to be playing annu-ally on New Year’s Day.” The Orange Bowl will be played annually at 1 p.m. on Jan. 1. The league anticipates the Orange Bowl hosting at least four semifinal games and says in those years, its champion will play in one of the three other host bowls. If the ACC champion makes the playoffs, another ACC team will play in the Orange Bowl. The ACC becomes the fifth major conference to announce a tie with a bowl that expects to be part of the pool of six bowls from which two semifinal sites will rotate. The Big 12 and Southeastern Conference are creating the Champions Bowl for their representatives, while the Big Ten and Pac-12 are com-mitted to the Rose Bowl. O. Ford Gibson, president and chair of the Orange Bowl Committee, says his bowl is “is extremely pleased to continue its relationship” with the ACC and is “looking forward to entering this new era of postseason collegiate football with a valued partner and its historically successful member institutions.”

Weeds “Messy” Episodes Division III-Football Sagan wins 3rd stage of Tour de FranceBy JAMEY KEATENAssociated PressBOULOGNE-SURMER, France — Pumping his arms in victory, Peter Sagan of Slovakia won the crash-marred third stage of the Tour de France on Tuesday as cycling’s show-case race returned to its home country. Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland remained the overall leader for a fourth straight day. The cyclists, who opened in Belgium, completed a 122-mile ride from Orchies that featured five small climbs to an uphill finish in the fishing port of Boulogne-sur-Mer. Sagan, at 22 one of cycling’s brightest stars, won his second stage in his debut Tour by bolting from the splintered pack with less than 300 meters left. He crossed the line several lengths — and one second — ahead of runner-up Edvald Boasson Hagen of Norway and third-place finisher Peter Velits of Slovakia. Sagan enjoys putting on a show for fans. He churned his arms, as a runner might, in a nod to the title charac-ter in the movie “Forrest Gump.” “It’s a thing I’d discussed with my teammates about what kind of gesture I’d do on the line,” said Sagan, who rides for Liquigas-Cannondale. “Everybody said, ‘Do a Forrest Gump’ because when he was told to run, he ran. And when I’m told to win, I win.” Sagan also showed a humbler side, saying he felt honored to ride alongside the likes of Vincenzo Nibali and two-time Giro d’Italia winner Ivan Basso on the Italian squad. “With Basso, I feel like I’m on the level of some-one who would shine his shoes,” Sagan said. With Sagan’s Stage 1 victory Sunday he became the youngest rider to win a Tour stage since Lance Armstrong in 1993 at 21. “You’ve got to give Sagan credit for the way he’s rid-ing at the minute. When you see something like that you just have to stand back and admire it, and smile and say well done,” Team Sky man-ager Dave Brailsford said. “It’s a bit like watching Messi playing football or something isn’t it?” he said, referring to Barcelona’s Lionel Messi. “He’s winning with such apparent ease at the moment that it’s pretty phenomenal.” After a time-trial prologue won by Cancellara, and generally flat first few stages, the race is as open as ever. Cancellara has 43 riders within a minute of his overall time — and that’s likely to change when the pack heads to the Alps in the second week and the Pyrenees in the third, if not sooner. Tuesday’s ride marked the first crash-related with-drawals from this 99th Tour, which ends July 22 on Paris’ Champs-Elysees. Overall, Cancellara leads runner-up Bradley Wiggins, who is hoping to become Britain’s first Tour winner, and third-place Sylvain Chavanel — both seven seconds back. Defending champ Cadel Evans climbed one spot to seventh place, 17 seconds behind. Sagan was 15th, another six sec-onds slower. The Swiss leader and the expected Tour title hopefuls trailed Sagan in a 45-rider pack that crossed one sec-ond behind the Slovak star — leaving the top standings little changed. But Belgium’s Philippe Gilbert, who last year had 18 victories in all compe-titions and was the top-ranked rider in the stand-ings, went tumbling after getting hit from behind. He clambered back onto his bike with scrapes on his left leg and arm and kept going, but lost more time to change a shoe dam-aged in the crash, said his BMC team manager, John Lelangue. Gilbert straggled across the finish line 7:46 after Sagan, plunging to 104th place overall. The Belgian began the day in seventh place, 13 seconds behind Cancellara. Gilbert’s slide meant Evans rose a notch. It was one of at least four crashes that marred the stage as riders jostled to get up front for climbs near the finish, including one within the last mile. Some riders also had mechanical troubles and flat tires. “The group was nervous. Everyone wanted to be up front,” Sagan told France-2 TV. “There were a lot of crashes. ... It was a very dangerous stage.” Five breakaway riders got out early through north-ern France’s wheat fields and former steel industry hubs, and through medi-eval villages like Isbergues — named for a sister of Charlemagne who, legend has it, could cure skin and eye illnesses. With about 30 miles to go, several riders crashed in a flat portion of road through a wheat field in a slight turn. Sky’s Kanstantsin Sivtsov of Belarus became the first competitor to drop out this year. A Tour medical report said he broke his left shin and was facing surgery. Some 18 miles later, another crash sent riders flying off the shoulder of the road on both sides. One flew into a wire fence. Spain’s Jose Joaquin Rojas of Movistar got into an ambulance and dropped out. He was hospitalized with a broken collarbone, the medical report said. That second big spill split the pack into mini bunches, and the front group over-took the breakaway riders. U.S. sprint specialist Tyler Farrar went down in the first crash and was delayed in the second. He and several of his Garmin-Sharp teammates rallied together to rejoin the main pack.

Arbitrator rules for Brees in franchise tag matterBy BRETT MARTELAssociated PressNEW ORLEANS — An arbitrator in Philadelphia has ruled in Drew Brees’ favor in a dispute over how much the Saints would have to pay him if they applied the franchise tag to the star quarterback again in 2013. The ruling adds leverage to Brees, who has so far skipped the Saints’ offsea-son practices while holding out for a new long-term con-tract with New Orleans. The Saints have already used the tag on Brees for 2012, meaning he can’t negotiate with another team and could be forced to settle for a one-year, $16.3 million deal if he cannot reach a new long-term deal by a July 16 deadline speci-fied in the league’s collec-tive bargaining agreement. Arbitrator Stephen Burbank’s ruling Tuesday said if New Orleans tries to tag Brees a second year in a row, he would be entitled to a 44 percent raise to more than $23 million because it would be his third-career franchise tag. The NFL had argued Brees would be due a 20 percent raise because it would have been only his second franchise tag with one team. Burbank, however, ruled that while the NFL’s CBA has some ambiguity on the matter, it is clear that the overarching purpose of the language regarding multi-ple franchise tags is meant to protect players from being denied their rights to free agency for an undue length of their careers. New Orleans designated Brees, 33, its franchise play-er in March after the club was unable to reach a new long-term extension with the record-setting quarter-back before his previous six-year, $60 million con-tract expired. During the past six seasons, Brees has not only led the Saints to their only Super Bowl title, but has completed more passes (2,488) for more yards (28,394) and more touch-downs (201) than any other quarterback in the NFL. His 67.8 percent comple-tion rate spanning the past six seasons also tops the league. In 2011, Brees set NFL single-season records with 468 completions, 5,476 yards passing and a com-pletion percentage of 71.2. His prolific passing num-bers helped the Saints set a new NFL high for total offensive yards in a season with 7,474. He led the Saints to a 13-3 regular season record and second NFC South Division title in three seasons. New Orleans defeated Detroit in the first round of the playoffs before falling in the final seconds of their second-round game at San Francisco. This offseason marks the first time Brees has had the opportunity to negotiate a major, long-term deal with the leverage provided by a string of injury-free seasons highlighted by a slew of individual and team statisti-cal records, in addition to a championship. He commanded only second-round money when he was drafted by San Diego, and the Chargers placed the one-year franchise tag on him when that deal ran out in 2005. The right-handed Brees then had an injury the fol-lowing season that required major surgery to his throw-ing shoulder, and which left him with few major offers during the 2006 off-season.

DEAR ABBY: I am a 39-year-old gay man in a three-year relationship with a wonderful man. We had both come out of very long and abusive relation-ships when we met. He works hard, and I stay home and take care of the house, the animals and the yard. There is no kind of abuse in our relationship. The problem is that I am an alcoholic. He keeps tell-ing me he can handle it as long as there is no abuse. I feel I’m taking advan-tage of him and that he deserves better than this, and I have told him so. I have been in rehab several times and tried AA. Nothing worked. I always go back to drinking. Where do I go from here? I don’t want to lose the love of my life, but it’s kill-ing me inside that he has to put up with my drinking problem. -NEEDS HELP IN FLORIDA DEAR NEEDS HELP: There IS abuse going on in your relationship -sub-stance abuse. Until you finally decide that there is something more impor-tant than a drink, you will remain stuck in your addic-tion. And as long as your partner continues to accept and “handle it,” he will be your enabler. Where you go from here is up to you, but getting counseling for your low self-esteem and going back to AA would be giant steps in the right direction. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: It seems that every other letter you print concerns a demand-ing relative (a parent, in-law, sibling, etc.). The writer always wants to know how to avoid unrea-sonable demands without causing “unpleasantness.” May I say a word to these folks? Be honest and admit that the relationship is ALREADY unpleasant. Demanding people are impossible to please. They know their control over you depends on temper tantrums and/or fits of sulking and tears. They’ll pitch these fits regularly no matter how hard you try to please them. When faced with an unreasonable demand, just say “no.” Don’t waste time giving reasons or trying to work out a compromise. You already know it won’t do any good. Then hun-ker down and wait for the explosion, keeping in mind that the longer you have been a doormat, the more violent and bitter the reac-tion will be. Above all, do not be drawn into a fight! Controlling people love to fight, and they are good at it. Your weapon should be polite withdrawal. Refuse meetings. Screen your calls. Ignore letters and emails unless they contain an apology and indicate a sincere desire for change. It may shock your domi-neering relatives into more reasonable behavior. If not, you haven’t lost a thing. You may even find that your life is less complicated without them. Draw the line and let your family know that future relationships will be based on love AND respect, or there will be no future rela-tions. You won’t regret it. -BEEN THERE, DONE THAT, KNOXVILLE, TENN. DEAR BEEN THERE: People who have spent a lifetime trying to please others may find your rec-ommendations difficult to put into practice. Habits can become so entrenched that they are hard to break without coaching and posi-tive reinforcement. That is why I advise those who feel constantly put upon to consider taking classes in assertiveness training. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let emotions flavor your day when it comes to professional dealings. Keep a straight face and conceal your intentions for the time being. Pour energy into developing your plans until you are fully prepared to launch. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Feel out a pending situation and you will dis-cover information that will help you organize your next move. Someone you feel responsible for will offer you something in return. Use charm to get what you want. Pushiness will lead to upset. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do your research before getting involved in a venture that requires a cash investment. Network with people who can help you advance. Your charm-ing way of displaying who you are and what you can offer will seal a deal. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Avoid family feuds or discord with a partner. Beautify your surround-ings or spend time rethink-ing ways to improve your image or current emo-tional situation. Interest in different cultures will instigate a positive change. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Mix and mingle with people involved in similar interests. The more you discuss what you can do, the more options will open up. A partnership can bring you good fortune, as long as you set up ground rules from the outset. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t spend too much time on details or you will not reach your deadline on time. Offer time, money and information in order to get the best results. Avoid making personal altera-tions based on a sales pitch that is too good to be true. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Expand your mind and delve into new interests. Enjoying the company of someone who shares your interests will help you make decisions that can alter your current way of living, as well as your part-nerships.

You can accomplish plenty if you are driven and determined to get things done. Your dedication and passion will place you in a good position when it comes to advancement and new opportunities. Love is highlighted. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Don’t be confused by the reactions you get from someone dependent on you or forcing respon-sibilities on you. Put your own agenda first. Take time to reassess and nur-ture the partnerships that give an equal amount in return. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Emotions will get you thinking about your future and your personal life. You can enhance the relationships that mean the most to you by spend-ing time with a loved one or making changes to your home or family. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Tread carefully when in conversation with a competitive person.
