COMING WEDNESDAY Local News Roundup. 95 71 Isolated T-Storms WEATHER, 2A Lake City ReporterTUESDAY, JULY 10, 2012 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEW SPAPER SINCE 1874 | 75¢ LAKECITYREPORTER.COM 1 Pitching in to put things right By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comThe Federal Emergency Management Agency Disaster Recovery Center opened its doors yesterday morning to a handful of residents waiting to register for FEMA assistance. Its been pretty steady, FEMA public information offi-cer Mary Margaret Walker said of the crowd. Eligible residents can apply for FEMA assistance at the center and receive consulta-tion throughout the process by the DRC staff. Grants are available through FEMA for immedi-ate disaster related expenses while the Small Business Administration offers low interest loans for more long-term recovery expenses. Walker said people also come to the center when they feel lost and confused. A lot of people want to talk about what happened, she said. In the 11 Florida counties designated for federal disas-ter assistance, around $5.2 million has been doled out so far. In Columbia County, just over 50 residents have regis-tered for FEMA assistance as of yesterday afternoon. To register, visit the DRC at 484 S.W. Commerce Drive. The center will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week. Registration can also be completed over the phone by calling 1-800-621-3362. Well be here as long as people keep coming, Walker said. County officials were informed yesterday afternoon that the county has been granted Public Assistance by the federal government.

However, by Monday afternoon, a huge pile of debris from the home was on the roadside as mem-bers of the Georgia Baptist Convention Disaster Relief team pulled the flooring, drywall as well as water-logged appliances and furniture from the Vazquez household. Vazquez thinks it will take at least six months before he and his family are able to move back into their home. We have to redo the floor, put all the walls back and the insulation, he said. Were going to try to put everything back the way it was or even better. They (Disaster Relief Team members) have been a real big help. We werent expecting this. A crew worked on the Vazquez home Sunday and another crew returned Monday. Me, my wife and the kids really appreciate this weve really been blessed through this dev-astation with help from people from Georgia and Florida because I couldnt do it by myself, Vazquez said. So much as been taken away from us. Its been real hard. My wife and kids have been depressed. Ive been here 11 years in this state and this is the first time weve seen something like this. Mike Tatem, pastor of Parkview Baptist Church pastor, said the church is part of the Florida Baptist Convention, which has disaster relief teams that came in and made assess-ments for some of the local flood damaged homes. Since it was such a wide area of damage, the Florida Baptist Disaster Relief has concentrated their efforts in Live Oak and Starke and the Georgia TONY BRITT/ Lake City ReporterDouglas Rowland, of Rincon, Ga., (left) and Nat McCalvin, of Tifton, Ga., members of a Georgia Baptist Convention Disaster Relief Team, pull water-logged cabinets out of Jo el Vazquezs home Monday afternoon. FEMA continued on 3A By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLaw enforcement officials responding to a report of lewd and lascivious behavior on Bascom Norris Drive Saturday were forced to remove the suspect from the scene due to an angry mob of family members. Timothy Keith Chortkoff, 33, 1716 NE 808 St., Old Town was arrest-ed and charged with a sex offense (unnatural and lascivious act) in con-nection with the case, which also involved an 11-year-old girl. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $15,000 bond, according to the sheriffs office website.

NEW YORK Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes reached a settlement in their divorce case, put ting an official end to the much-scrutinized romance less than two weeks after Holmes unexpectedly filed for divorce. The case has been settled and the agree ment has been signed, Holmes attorney Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement. Cruises rep Amanda Lundberg confirmed the settlement. An assistant in Wolfes office who would not give her name would not elabo rate on the agreement. We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chap ter of her life, the state ment from Holmes attor ney said. We thank Toms counsel for their profes sionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution. Cruise, 50, and Holmes, 33, had a romance that ended as it began as tabloid fodder. Earlier Monday, they asked for privacy for their family with 6-year-old daughter Suri. We are committed to working together as par ents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suris best interests. We want to keep matters affecting our fam ily private and express our respect for each others commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each others roles as parents, read the state ment from Lundberg and Holmes representative Nanci Ryder. The resolution was notably quick, particu larly in Hollywood terms. By way of comparison, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are still negotiating a divorce for an August 2011 marriage that lasted less than three months. A quick settlement indi cates that they were able to agree that theyll both do some co-parenting, said Steve Mindel, a man aging partner in the Los Angeles firm Feinberg, Mindel, Brandt and Klein who has handled bi-coastal divorce cases. Mindel said the next step would be for Holmes or Cruise to file to have their status changed to divorced, but that the actu al financial and child custo dy details wont get filed in court unless theres some later dispute. Hunger Games adds Hoffman LOS ANGELES The Hunger Games has bagged an Academy Award winner. Philip Seymour Hoffman, who earned the best-actor Oscar for 2005s Capote, has joined the cast for part two in the futuristic adventure series, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Lionsgate Films announced Monday that Hoffman will play Plutarch Heavensbee, the new head game-maker overseeing an annual televised fight to the death staged by a repressive government in post-apocalyptic North America. Catching Fire takes place a year after the blockbuster The Hunger Games, with game sur vivors Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, and Peeta Mellark, played by Josh Hutcherson, hurled into the governments machina tions over the 75th annual games. Judith Ivey joins The Heiress NEW YORK Two-time Tony Award winner Judith Ivey is returning to two familiar places shes back on Broadway and revisiting an old work. Producers said Monday that former Designing Women star Ivey will join the cast of The Heiress, a play based on the Henry James novel Washington Square, which was made into a 1997 movie starring Ivey and Jennifer Jason Leigh. The play also stars Jessica Chastain, David Strathairn and Downton Abbey star Dane Stevens. It will be directed by play wright and director Moises Kaufman. Preview performances begin Oct. 7 at the Walter Kerr Theatre on 48th Street. n Associated Press CORRECTION The Lake City Reporter corrects errors of fact in news items.

Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV SEFFNER Hillsborough County Sheriffs deputies arrested two men they say used a front-end loader to drive through an ATM at a Bank of America location and steal the machine with cash and deposits inside. Authorities say the men loaded the ATM onto a dump truck early Sunday and took it to a site near Tampa. They abandoned the dump truck and went back to try to break open the ATM. Late in the afternoon deputies got a tip about the stolen ATM. When they arrived at the scene, the men were still trying to break in. Deputies arrested 37year-old Robert L. Suggs and 27-year-old David E. Hall on numerous charges. Authorities say the men caused $1,000 in damage to the machine. Teen claiming insanity in attack FORT LAUDERDALE A Florida teenager is blaming his near-fatal 2010 assault on a girl at a middle school on mental illness triggered by the suicide of his brother a few months earlier. Defense lawyer Russell Williams said as trial opened Monday that 17year-old Wayne Treacy suffered from post-trau matic stress disorder that made him unable to tell right from wrong. Treacy is claiming insanity in the attack on Josie Lou Ratley, who suffered permanent brain injuries. Williams says Treacy became enraged following a text message from Ratley telling him to be with his dead brother. The two had been exchanging series of rude and insulting texts before that. Prosecutors say Treacy deliberately planned the attack and should be held responsible. Treacy faces a potential 50-year prison sentence if convicted of first-degree attempted murder. Teens crash likely did not kill man ST. PETERSBURG Tampa Bay area authori ties say they dont believe a man found dead in a front yard was hit by a 14year-old driver. St. Petersburg police say the teen and a 12-year-old passenger were speeding through a neighborhood early Sunday when the 14year-old lost control and crashed into a utility pole. Police say the vehicle continued sliding until it came to rest in a front yard. The driver and pas senger fled before police arrived, but police say both have been identified. During the investigation, 20-year-old Jeremy Davon Mayers was found uncon scious in the yard near the crash scene and later pro nounced dead at a hospital. Police say his cause of death remains under inves tigation, but a preliminary exanimation didnt reveal any injury suggesting he was hit by a vehicle. Odor in cockpit forces landing WEST PALM BEACH Authorities now say it was an odd odor in the cockpit and not smoke that forced a flight from Puerto Rico to Atlanta to make an emergency landing in South Florida. Delta spokeswoman Sarah Lora says airline officials are still trying to determine what caused the smell Sunday morning on Flight 418. The flight land ed safely at Palm Beach International Airport.

Arrest report Crash claims life of Live Oak man LIVE OAK-A Live Oak man died of injuries suffered in a single vehicle crash Sunday morn ing when he failed to negotiate a curve and struck a tree in Suwannee County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. James Keith Daughtry, 49, Live Oak, died in a Gainesville hospital as a result of injuries he suffered the wreck. The crash occurred near midnight Saturday on County Road 137, approximately one mile north of 154th Terrace. According to FHP reports, Daughtry was traveling north on CR 137 in a 2002 Dodge Dakota when he lost control on a left-hand curve, drove onto the grassy shoulder and struck a large tree, After the initial impact, Daughtrys vehicle spun counter clockwise and disengaged from the tree, coming to rest facing northwest. Daughtry was taken to Shands at the University of Florida by helicopter where he died, said FHP. Baptist Convention Disaster Relief has come down to help Columbia County with the devastation that has taken place here, Tatem said. Parkview Baptist Church is hosting the disaster relief teams that have come to help. We always believe churches should be seen positively in the community, we want to give back to our community and we want to be a place that is known as an asset in our community and this is just one way we can reach into our neighborhoods just extend the love of Christ, Tatem said. Duane Lyon, a member of the Georgia Baptist Disaster Relief Team, said there are 15 team members on site on around the county. Team members come from a variety of locations in Georgia, including Thomasville, Savannah, Wood Stock, Flowery Branch, Fort Gaines and Tifton. We got into a home and help the homeowner in any way that we can help them, as far as remov ing personal items and damaged items, Lyon said. The homeown er takes out what they want to try to keep and we take the rest and put it out in the street. Then we remove drywall, carpet and any thing that has been wet and then spray the house with bleach so it can be repair or rebuilt. Lyon said the team currently has 17 standing work orders from Columbia County homeowners. He said team representatives have talked on average to 25-30 people each day letting them know what services the team can provide. Many of the homes still have water in them and there is nothing the team can do about them until the water recedes enough to get in to work them, he said. All disaster relief team mem bers are volunteers and Lyon said they will remain in the area as long as there is work to be done and as long as volunteers continue to participate. It was important to do this because I know people need help and Christ wants us to help peo ple, Lyon said. You just receive a blessing knowing you are help ing other people that are in hurt ing states. him her child had been introduced to lewd behav ior by Chortkoff. Troiano spoke to Chortkoff, who was detained and taken to the police station for ques tioning. According to police reports, Chortkoff admitted to wrestling with the child in the living room of the home before taking her into bed room and locking the door behind him. Once there, he began to remove his cloth ing. The child then jumped off the bed, unlocked the door and fled to her moth ers apartment. Chortkoff was arrested and transported to the Columbia County jail. The state Department of Children and Families was notified in reference to the incident. such as debris removal and emergency protective mea sures. Also included are costs for repair, replace ment or restoration pub licly-owned facilities dam aged by the disaster. In addition to Columbia County, other counties covered by the Public Assistance Declaration include Suwannee, Union, Hamilton, Baker, Charlotte, Citrus, Clay, Dixie, Franklin, Gulf, Hernando, Jefferson, Lafayette, Liberty, Manatee, Nassau, Pasco, Sarasota and Wakulla. Public works director Kevin Kirby reported that the only paved roads that continue to be blocked in areas are state road 247 and Lassie Black Street. Mosquitoes seem to be our biggest issue at this point, Kirby said. The county hopes to have 800 pounds of larvi cide arrive in the beginning of the week. Sheriff Mark Hunter said his officers continue to work extended shifts in order to maintain a good presence in the community throughout the recovery period. The additional resourc es that we have here need to stay with us for at least another week, Hunter said. Suzanne Edwards, chief operating officer of Catholic Charities, report ed that 310,000 pounds of food and water have been distributed since the relief efforts began. Shelter continues to be offered at Richardson Middle School. American Red Cross manager Donna Lee said two people are current ly residing in the shel ter. Once both individu als find other residences, the shelter will be closed. Lee expects the shelter to close within the next few days. Public information offi cer Harvey Campbell said county residents are still advised not to pump septic tanks. For those who have had their wells compromised by flood waters, Campbell recommends buying a $15 test kit from the county Environment Health Department. Instructions on decon taminating well water are also given out at this loca tion. SUSPECT From Page 1A Let us help your business SHINE!

The farm is participating in a three-year study to determine the effects of nutrient recycling on its operation. The study is evaluating nutrient imports to the farm such as manure, feed and fertilizer and nutrient exports such as crop products and beef that leave the farm, atmospheric loss, and nutrients that might leach into ground water. Soil, crops, and water are analyzed for nutrient concentra tions all to determine how effi ciently those nutrients are being utilized on the farm and the potential for nutrients to be lost to the environment. The study was initiated in 2009 by the Suwannee River partner ship (SRP) and is being led by the University of Florida /Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS). Funding is provided by the Suwannee River Water Management District (District), UF/IFAS, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS), the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), and Suwannee Farms. Now in its final year, the study will determine the effects of best management practices (BMPs) currently used on the farm and how these practices could expand to improve nutrient man agement. This study is a positive step toward improving nutrient man agement and protecting water quality, said Hugh Thomas, SRP coordinator. It also has the added benefit of conserving water. Once the study is complete, the findings will be used to provide nutrient management recommendations to dairy and other confined-animal opera tions. This research could have farreaching effects, said Thomas. The data will be used to improve BMPs state-wide and possibly around the nation. Thomas said the study is expected to be finalized sometime next year. During a tour of Suwannee Farms on May 22, SRPs Joel Love, kneeling, and UF/IFAS George Hochmuth, second from left, collect leachate water samples while other participants look on.

The unemployment rate for June remained unchanged at 8.2 percent, the U.S. Department of Labor announced Friday, making it 41 straight months at which its been 8 percent or higher. The labor force grew by 189,000, but the economy cre-ated only 80,000 new jobs; it would have been 84,000, but governments shed 4,000 work-ers. June was the third straight month of weak hiring, an aver-age of only 75,000 a month for the quarter. Its especially disappointing because the year started on such a promising note: 226,000 new jobs a month for the first quarter. Perhaps the jobs market isnt as bad as it seems. Payroll provider ADP says businesses added 176,000 jobs last month, up from 136,000 in May, but in politics and public perception its the Labor Department num-bers that count. President Barack Obama, whose administration predicted a 5.6 percent jobless rate by now when his stimulus bill passed, offered only the weak observation that the June fig-ures were a step in the right direction. If the Federal Reserve forecasts hold, Obama will have to campaign throughout the fall with the jobless rate stuck about where it is now. Republican Mitt Romney called the rate unac-ceptably high and blamed it on Obamas failed policies. But Romney has been unable to gain traction with his self-depiction as a job creator, and his economic program -a grab bag of tax cuts, cheaper energy and getting tough with the Chinese -has been greeted with yawns. The kindly disposed Wall Street Journal says, If anything, he is losing ground. Meanwhile, labor-force participation is hovering around a 30-year low of 63.8 percent, and the underemployment rate -which many believe is a more accurate barometer of the job market -is at 14.9 percent. That number includes workers who arent looking for a job but would like one and part-time workers who would like to work full time. There are potentially disturbing elements on the economic horizon. The European debt crisis could worsen, hurting the market for America exports. Congress could take the coun-try over what the Fed calls the fiscal cliff if its fails to deal with the expiring tax cuts and deep, across-the-board spending cuts that are supposed to kick in automatically on Jan. 2. There were some faint bright spots. The average workweek lengthened slightly and average wages rose slightly, too, staying ahead of inflation. And gasoline prices continued to fall mean-ing those workers who had jobs could get to them more cheaply. T he American peo-ple finally have heard of Brian Terry. He is the best-known victim of Fast and Furious, the Obama administrations de facto conventional-weapons prolifera-tion program. Between November 2009 and January 2011, Team Obama arranged for licensed firearms dealers to sell guns to straw buyers, who transferred them to known violent criminals in Mexico. Among these firearms, two AK-47s were found near Rio Rico, Ariz., where suspected smugglers fatally shot Terry, a 40-year-old former Marine, on Dec. 15, 2010. While Terry epitomizes those whom Fast and Furious has harmed, he is not its sole casualty. In another Obama administration gun-walking escapade, in February 2011 in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, members of Los Zetas drug gang ambushed two U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Jaime Zapata, 32, was fatally shot and Victor Avila was wounded. Largely overlooked is this plans calamitous impact on Mexico, its people and U.S.-Mexican relations. Approximately 300 Mexicans have been killed or wounded by Fast and Furious guns, estimates former Mexican attorney gen-eral Victor Humberto Benitez Trevino. Relevant details are scarce. However, at least one case generated enormous headlines -in Mexico. On Oct. 21, 2010, Sinaloa drug cartel members kidnapped Mario Gonzalez, brother of Chihuahua states attorney general at the time, Patricia Gonzalez. That Nov. 5, his tortured body was discov-ered in a shallow grave. Mexican police soon nabbed eight of his suspected kidnappers in a shoot-out. They seized 16 weapons, including two Fast and Furious guns, serial numbers confirm. Fast and Furious guns have befouled at least 200 crime scenes, including murders and abductions. Among them: -Members of La Familia drug gang fired at a Mexican federal police helicopter on May 24, 2011, wounding three officers and forcing an emergency landing in Michoacan, western Mexico. Five days later, four more helicopters attacked La Familia. Gang mem-bers returned fire, striking all four choppers and injuring two more government agents. Police pre-vailed, killing 11 cartel members and arresting 36 -including those suspected of targeting the first chopper. Mexican authorities say La Familia possessed heavy-duty body armor and 70 rifles, includ-ing several Fast and Furious weapons. -Two weapons purchased by Fast and Furious targets were recovered in Sonora July 2010, and to what the Justice Department classifies as a homi-cide/willful kill -gun. -Two Fast and Furious guns were linked to a February 2010 assassination conspiracy against Julian Leyzaola, then police chief in Baja California. -Eleven Fast and Furious firearms were discovered in Atoyac de Alvarez, a city on Mexicos Pacific Coast, after Mexican soldiers saved a kidnap victim in November 2009. Fast and Furious has poisoned the wellspring of public opinion in Mexico as it relates to the coop-eration and engagement with the United States, Mexicos ambas-sador to the United States, Arturo Sarukhan, said May 31. The Grassley-Issa report concluded that 1,048 of these weapons remain unaccounted for. Unlike carrier pigeons, these Fast and Furious guns will not fly safely home. Instead, for years to come, they will keep drawing blood in Mexico and points north. Q Deroy Murdock is a columnist with Scripps Howard News Service and a media fellow with the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace at Stanford University. Email deroy.Murdock(at)gmail.com.) M oves in the economy, no matter how minuscule are amplified this presidential election year. The jobs report for June, issued Friday by the Labor Department, was the latest indicator that the economy is sluggish, showing lower-than-expected job growth and a flat unemployment rate. This news typically would not bode well for a president seeking reelection. The unemployment rate, 8.2 percent in June, was unchanged from May and hasnt moved much the first half of the year. Only 80,000 new payroll jobs were added, below projections, and private payroll growth was the weakest it has been in 10 months. Policies, favoring bank consolidation and financial schemes, alternative energy and high technology, and government expansion of health care are hampering jobs creation in core-manufacturing, resources and many service activities, wrote Peter Morici, an economist and professor at the Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. Those policies encourage more off-shoring, push down wages, pad big bonuses and divi-dends, and skew income toward the wealthiest in Manhattan, the Silicon Valley and other bastions of privilege, Mr. Morici said. We agree. Mr. Morici contends that the countrys unemployment rate is artificially low. If the adult labor-force participation rate were the same today as when Barack Obama became president, unem-ployment would be 11 percent. Steven Stanek, research fellow at the Heartland Institute, said, Businesses dont like to make long-term commitments based on short-term government policies. ... So employment stays weak. If the policies of recent years continue, regardless the winner in November, expect similarly disappointing job reports month after month. A decade or two ago, a longtime friend asked if Id like to join the Andy Griffith Rerun Watchers Fan Club. What do I have to do? I asked. Well, she said, you just watch reruns of The Andy Griffith Show, and youre a member. I like simple requirements like that, but I cant say I really fulfilled them. I didnt watch enough of the reruns to be con-sidered a devotee and a bona fide member. So, as a tribute to Andy Griffith, who died last week at the age of 86, I phoned my friend, Patricia Pat Kerley, a former newspaper columnist, and asked for a comment about Andy. She sent me this answer by e-mail: It pleases me that the man who brought Andy Taylor to life on television lived a long and successful real life himself. I think it would have pleased him to know that his words are quot-ed regularly in our household. From Dont overexpect, said to Gomer before a blind date with Thelma Lous cousin, to Because lifes too short, said to Aunt Bee when she asked him why he hadnt shopped longer for a less expensive freezer, we continue to harvest bits of wis-dom planted inside of us during the many hours we spent with him in Mayberry. Surely Andy would have been pleased. To refresh my memory of the show, I watched a rerun of The Andy Griffith Show just a few minutes ago. I watched two of them, in fact. In the first epi-sode, Sheriff Andy Taylor, Andy Griffiths character, took it upon himself to settle a feud between the Carters and the Wakefields so that a young coupleone a Carter, the other a Wakefieldcould get married. In the other show, the sheriffs feisty, squeaky-voiced dep-uty, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), resigned to protest Andys enforcing a citizens arrest by Gomer Pyle (Jim Nabors) a few minutes after Barney had arrest-ed Gomer for the same offense, making an illegal U turn. As is usually the case, both episodes had happy endings. And that, I think, was one key to the success of The Andy Griffith Show. Sheriff Andy Taylor was a decent man who did decent things to promote happy endings. Those happy endings were a long time ago: 52 years, in fact, since the show first ambled onto television screens in plain black and white. That was back when simple life lessons were wel-come; back when calling a town Mayberry was a compliment; back when humor was clean and honestly funny. But the main reason for the shows success, reviewers agree, was Andy Griffith himself, a man of the South who didnt mind if others got most of the laughs. So, Pat Kerley and other Andy Griffith fans, youre blessed. Andy is gone, but his shows no doubt will be around a long time. Maybe some of the mod-ern purveyors of TV humor will watch and learn something. Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service.

WASHINGTON Facing sag ging jobs numbers, President Barack Obama sought to recast the November election as a fight over tax fairness on Monday, urg ing tax cut extensions for all fami lies earning less than $250,000 but denying them to households making more than that. The presidents pitch was aimed at painting Republican rival Mitt Romney as a protector of the rich at a time of economic unease, as Democrats intensify efforts to raise questions about the Romneys own wealth and offshore bank accounts. Romney supports extend ing the federal tax cuts, first signed by George W. Bush, for all income earners. Obama said if Congress pass es a one-year extension for those making less than $250,000, vot ers can use the November elec tion to decide the fate of the cuts for higher income earners. My opponent will fight to keep them in place. I will fight to end them, said Obama, flanked by a dozen people the White House said would benefit from the tax cut extension. The president has long sup ported ending the Bush-era tax cuts for those making more than $250,000. The White House and the presidents re-election team are reviving his arguments now as a way to suggest that the push by Romney and con gressional Republicans for an across-the-board extension of the tax cuts could put Americas middle class at risk. Lets not hold the vast major ity of Americans and our econ omy hostage while we debate the merits of another tax cut for the wealthy, Obama said at the White House. The presidents sudden focus on the tax fairness debate was also an attempt to change the election subject after yet another lackluster jobs report. New numbers released Friday showed the nations unemploy ment rate stuck at 8.2 percent, giving Romney fresh grounds to attack Obama as unfit to steer the U.S. economy. Romney campaign spokes woman Andrea Saul said the president was responding to the bad economic news by calling for a massive tax increase. It just proves again that the president doesnt have a clue how to get America working again and help the middle class, Saul said. Obama said his proposal was aimed at staving off an end-of-the year stalemate with Congress. But it appeared to have the oppo site effect. Congressional Republicans immediately balked, saying it would be a mistake to raise taxes on anyone while the economy was still struggling to recover. The House GOP plans to make its own push this summer for a full extension of the tax cuts. White House press secretary Jay Carney said Obama would veto such a bill if it landed on his desk. Ahead of Obamas remarks on Monday, White House officials consulted with congressional Democrats to shore up support within the party. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Sen. Charles Schumer, DN.Y., a member of his partys Senate leadership, had both pre viously advocated extending the cuts to those who make up to $1 million annually, but on Monday they stood in solidarity with the president. Obama angered many fellow Democrats in 2010 when he signed off on a full extension of the Bush tax cuts, in part to win concessions from Republicans on other legislation. Extending the tax cuts only for households making below $250,000 would save the govern ment about $800 billion over 10 years compared with extending them for everyone. The full cuts cost the government about $4.5 trillion over a decade. Economists worry that acrossthe-board tax increases, along with automatic spending cuts also scheduled to take hold at years end, could be a blow to the shaky U.S. economy. About 2.5 million U.S. house holds had incomes of $250,000 annually or more, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. The medi an household income in 2010 was $49,445. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS TUESDAY JULY 10, 2012 6A Longer you stay, Less you pay Monthly Unlimited See store for details. at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine will offer an over view of grief and under standing with a loss of a pet.

A four-home run night by Josh Hamilton. Pittsburgh and Washington together in first place for the first time. Philadelphia in the cellar. Cliff Lee winless until his 14th start. Seeing whats going on here, its fun to be a part of it, A.J. Burnett said after improving to 10-2 as the Pirates routed the San Francisco Giants and Tim Lincecum 13-2 Sunday. If the season ended now, the first year of expanded playoffs would open with Baltimore at the Los Angeles Angels for the one-game AL wild card, with the winner hosting the Yankees in the division series opener. The Chicago White Sox would host two-time AL champ Texas in the other best-of-5 series which for one year only starts at the team with the lesser regular-season record. In the NL, Cincinnati would host Atlanta for the wild card, with the win-ner hosting the Nationals a franchise whose only postseason appearance was as the Montreal Expos in 1981. The Pirates, out of the postseason since Francisco Cabreras two-out, two-run hit for Atlanta in 1992, would host the post-Frank McCourt Los Angeles Dodgers. Everybody feels good, and theyre looking for the break, Washington man-ager Davey Johnson said. Theyve battled hard. Weve had a lot of close games. Its a good time for a break. The Angels Mike Trout, one of a record five rookies making the trip to Kauffman Stadium for Tuesday nights game, leads the AL with a .341 average. After spending the start of the season in the minors, hes the first player with 10 homers and 20 steals at the break without having any in April, according to STATS LLC. A game-changer, offensively, defensively, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. The kid has got a lot of talent, a ton. Usually when you see a guy that fast, you dont anticipate him hitting the ball that hard. What hes doing at 20, its really pretty amazing. And at 20, Trouts not even the All-Star baby. That would be 19-year-old Bryce Harper, the youngest posi-tion player in All-Star his-tory and the third-youngest ever behind Bob Feller in 1938 and Dwight Gooden in 1984. Harper made his big league debut on April 28, the same night Trout played his first game this season. Combining with staff ace Stephen Strasburg for a capital dynamic duo, Harper is hitting .282 with eight homers and 25 RBIs in 63 games. No wonder the team put up a banner read-ing NATITUDE PARK. I can hardly pronounce the dang word, Johnson said with a smile. Alongside the newbies are plenty of familiar faces. Hamilton, who hit four homers for Texas at Baltimore on May 8, and Torontos Jose Bautista will both be there after hitting 27 homers apiece in the first half. Despite being slowed by back spasms and an intes-tinal virus, Hamilton leads the AL with 75 RBIs. By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressWIMBLEDON, England The morning after Roger Federer won a record-tying seventh Wimbledon cham-pionship, he returned to the site of his latest triumph to conduct interviews in vari-ous languages and, while there, ran into All England Club Chairman Philip Brook. They exchanged pleasantries Monday and before parting ways, Brook said: Ill see you in a few weeks. Ill check in with you when I get back, Federer replied with a grin. In this rather unusual season, the green grass that Federer knows so well is the scene of two signifi-cant events: Wimbledon, which ended Sunday, and the London Olympics tennis competition, which begins July 28. Having restored his reign at the Grand Slam tournament, Federer can quickly follow that up by earning a gold medal in singles for Switzerland, one of the few accomplishments missing from his overflow-ing resume. And make no mistake, Federer is not merely happy to be participating in the 2012 Summer Games. I do believe my situation has got that little star next to it. I am now the Wimbledon champion, and I think that gives me even more confidence coming to the Olympics. And maybe in some ways, it maybe takes some pressure off the Olympics because I already did win at Wimbledon this year, he said, uncrossing his arms to make air quotes with his fingers. So thats a good thing for me because of course there is a lot of hype around me playing at the Olympics this year. This is about winning, not participating. Federer has already been to three Olympics; he met his wife, Mirka, a former tennis player, at the 2000 Games. He carried the Swiss flag at the opening ceremony twice. He owns a doubles gold he won with Stanislas Wawrinka in Beijing four years ago. A singles gold would be the perfect gift for a guy who has everything, includ-ing a record 17 Grand Slam titles (his first came at Wimbledon in 2003) and, as of Monday, 286 weeks at No. 1 in the ATP rankings, equaling Pete Sampras career record. Obviously, the Olympics is the next goal, Federer said during a 15-minute session with a half-dozen reporters. I was taking it in steps, really: all-out until Wimbledon. And then, after that, take a break, reassess, prepare well, then come back for the Olympics and hopefully play well. It is tough to imagine how Federer could pos-sibly make himself into a better player, but he keeps on honing his craft and adding to his record totals. Most Grand Slam titles. Most Grand Slam finals. Most consecutive Grand Slam quarterfinals. Most Grand Slam match wins. And on and on it goes. But until he beat Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 Sunday, Federer had gone 2 12 years since his most By JENNA FRYERAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Penske Racing will use Sam Hornish Jr. this week-end at New Hampshire as the team waits for more information on suspended driver AJ Allmendinger. Allmendinger was suspended by NASCAR for failing a random drug test and has until today to ask for his B sample to be tested. Penske Racing said in a statement Monday it is working with NASCAR to follow its process and procedures. Allmendinger was suspended shortly before Saturday nights race at Daytona, where NASCAR officials were informed that his June 29 random test had come back positive. NASCAR and Penske officials have not said what Allmendinger tested posi-tive for, and Allmendinger has made no statement since his suspension. Hornish was the emergency substitute for Allmendinger on Saturday night. He was pulled off a television set in North Carolina, where he was an analyst on a live broad-cast, and flew to Daytona International Speedway. Hornish arrived right before the start of the race. A cut tire contributed to his 33rd-place finish. Hornish is the natural replacement for Allmendinger, who is in his first season with Penske Racing. Allmendinger was hired in late December after the team suddenly split with Kurt Busch. This season, Penske has Hornish running the full Nationwide schedule. He has nine top-10 finishes and is fourth in the standings.

Did that gap make this one a little more special? Absolutely, Federer said. I mean, look, this one has a very unique place in my heart because of many reasons. ... But maybe also the bit-longer wait has cre-ated this as a more fairytale tournament for me. Approaching his 31st birthday on Aug. 8, hes the oldest man to win Wimbledon since Arthur Ashe in 1975. Hes also a father of twin girls who turn 3 this month and were at Centre Court on Sunday. It all could happen again at the very same spot in only a few weeks time except with a medal hang-ing from his neck instead of a trophy cradled in his hands. Pittsburghs Andrew McCutchen leads with the NL with a .362 aver-age, while Milwaukees Ryan Braun is tops with 24 homers after successfully overturning a 50-game suspension for a positive drug test last October. In his first season with St. Louis, Carlos Beltran has a league-high 65 RBIs. But for many, the mound has provided the biggest surprises. Phil Humber of the Chicago White Sox start-ed it with a perfect game at Seattle on April 21, and the Angels Jered Weaver pitched a no-hitter against Minnesota on May 2. Then Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in the Mets 51-season history on June 1, accomplishing the feat against St. Louis in the franchises 8,020th game. Seven days later in Seattle, a record-tying six pitchers combined for a no-hitter against the Dodgers, and on June 13 San Franciscos Matt Cain pitched a perfect game against Houston. R.A. Dickey followed his offseason climb of Mount Kilimanjaro to rise to the top of NL pitchers at 12-1. In the AL, Weaver is 10-1 with a major league-best 1.96 ERA. Tampa Bays David Price and the Rangers Matt Harrison are tied for wins at 11-4. And while the Rangers Ron Washington will be in the AL dugout for the second straight season, following a 5-1 loss last year in Phoenix, Tony La Russa will be running the NL. The retired manager of the World Series champion Cardinals will be the fourth inactive skipper in All-Star history, the first since the ALs Bob Lemon after he was fired by George Steinbrenner in 1979.National League Carlos Gonzalez, Colorado, dhMelky Cabrera, San Francisco, cfRyan Braun, Milwaukee, lfJoey Votto, Cincinnati, 1b Carlos Beltran, St. Louis, rf Buster Posey, San Francisco, cPablo Sandoval, 3b, San FranciscoDan Uggla, Atlanta, 2b Rafael Furcal, St. Louis, ssMatt Cain, San Francisco, p American League Derek Jeter, N.Y.

The three-time Olympic track champion is trying to become the first British champion of cyclings premier event. He dominated Mondays race against the clock a discipline he loves in the 25.8-mile ninth stage between Arc-et-Senans and Besancon. I was really motivated the time trial is my thing, Wiggins said, adding he had worked hard on his rid-ing position, breathing and course study. I am very happy now. Its probably my best time trial ever.
DEAR ABBY: I am a longtime reader. This is the first time I have ever written to you, and Im hoping you will have an answer for me. Id like to know the proper way to address a surviving gay spouse in the unfortunate event of a death. Is a gay man who has lost his husband a widower or a widow (seeing as he lost his husband and not a wife)? Is the title of the survivor dependent on his or her gender or the gen-der of their partner? For the record, I support gay marriage because I believe in true love in all its forms. -HANNAH IN CARROLLTON, GA. DEAR HANNAH: Regardless of sexual orien-tation, if a male loses his spouse, he is a widower, and if a woman loses her spouse, she is a widow. The terms dont change because the union was a same-sex relationship. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder many years ago. I started a combined therapy about a year ago -individual and a dialectical behavioral therapy group. Everything has been going great, and I have learned a lot about myself. The problem is, I have become very attracted to my therapist and, as a result, I feel it is interfering with my treatment. I am confused as to why I am having these feelings. Is it part of my bipolar disorder, or something else? Surely, this would be something I would bring up to my therapist, but unfortunately, Im embar-rassed. Abby, what do you suggest I do in a situation like this? I feel like putting a hold on therapy for a while because of this, but I know that I still need it. -NEEDS THERAPY IN ILLINOIS DEAR NEEDS THERAPY: Please dont use this as an excuse to stop your therapy. Your feelings are very common in psychotherapy. The term for it is transfer-ence. It is the process by which emotions associated with one person -such as a parent -unconsciously shift to another. In your case, thats your therapist. Because youre finding it distracting, its important that you discuss this pri-vately with your therapist. It wont be the first time he has heard it, I guaran-tee. Ill bet if you asked in a group session, How many people here are in love with Dr. So-and-So? almost every hand in the room would go up. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My husband makes his living doing general construc-tion. We have no employ-ees. We get along fantastic, except for one point of contention. Over the years we have made investments in tools for his trade. Another family member constantly asks to borrow them for personal projects. My husband will-ingly lends them out. If he needs that tool for a job, he will go without, reschedule his work or make a special trip to retrieve it. I say the only way he should lend out his tools is if there is a slim to zero chance at all of his needing it himself, and if he does, then it must be returned immediately. -TOOLS OF THE TRADE DEAR T.O.T.T.: Your husbands tools are his livelihood, just as those belonging to a barber, beautician, seamstress or doctor would be. Because his relative has the money, he (or she) should inquire about RENTING the nec-essary tool from a home improvement store. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make every move count. Change will bring with it a new attitude and more connections to people you find inspiring. Dont let the past bring you down or limit the pos-sibilities that are within reach. Love is in the stars. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Concentrate on mon-etary gains. Dont let any-one bully you into spend-ing on something you dont want. Take action with regard to where you want to be and the type of environment in which you want to live. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont stop until you reach your goal. Choose the people you work or play with carefully. Avoid anyone who is likely to goad you into an argu-ment. Even though you will win whatever you pur-sue, a quarrel wont satisfy your soul. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Sit tight until you are sure the changes you want to make are in your favor. Dont be fooled by someone painting a pretty picture of the possibilities. Talk is cheap, so get your facts and figures straight before you proceed. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Youll be tempted to take on too much. Make sure you have a backup plan and plenty of supporters you can call upon for help. Romance is highlighted, and social and organiza-tional events will enhance your chances to improve your love life. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dont let work, peers or a lover hold you back. Believe in what you have to offer and pursue your goals even if someone criti-cizes you. Not everyone will give you valid informa-tion or help you advance. Rely on you and you alone. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Learn all you can from mistakes. Perfection will play an important role in how well you are received. Hone your skills and make them work for you. Socialize and you will appeal to someone you want as a partner. Love is dominant. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Keep your plans sim-ple and your wallet tucked away in a safe place. You dont have to spend to impress. Consider who your friends really are and adjust your roster to accommodate those who truly count. Take a cre-ative leap forward. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Making financial adjustments and lowering your overhead will ease your stress and help you feel good about future prospects. The lifestyle you desire can be yours if you let go of people and possessions you no longer need or use. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dont let dis-cussions deter you from following your own path, especially where money and profits are concerned. Family and friends are likely to lead you down a costly path that will cause added worry and regret. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Recognizing past mistakes will lead to a better life. You have the potential and the opportu-nity; all you have to do is put in the effort. Romance is highlighted, and making changes to your home and lifestyle will lead to happi-ness. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont believe every-thing you hear. Stick close to home and the people you can trust. Travel will result in empty promises and a lack of factual infor-mation. Dont let the chem-istry you have with some-one keep you from making a good choice. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
