By TONY BRITT email@example.com More than five months of work, sweat, bonding and fellowship culminated earlier this week in a celebration when the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate dedicated its recently completed house. The house dedication took place Monday afternoon, when Annie Mosley and her family received the keys to a 1,200 sq. ft. home with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. George L. Burnham Jr., chair man of the board of the Habitat for Humanity of Lake City/ Columbia County said it took a little more than five months for the Habitat for Humanity of Lake City/Columbia County and its vol unteers to complete the home. Roughly 40 people total attended the event, predominantly vol unteers, directors, officers and donors. It was a great day for the affili ate, but especially for the family, Burnham said. Annie Mosley and her family were the recipients of the home. It feels wonderful to finally have my home completed, she said. Its wonderful because this is like a dream come true. Judy Conklin, a local Habitat For Humanity board member who volunteered on the project, said she is happy its been com pleted. I feel honored and fortunate to have worked on this home for a deserving family, Conklin said. I met Annie last year working on a previous house. Its a pleasure to have helped her own her own home. Mosley also spoke about hav ing a new home. It means the world to me to have a new home, Mosley said. Its an opportunity that I never thought would be presented to me and my family and Im very appreciative and thankful for everybodys help. The dedication of the home marked the fifth home that the Habitat for Humanity of Lake City/Columbia County has com pleted. Weve built five houses since 2005, Burnham said. It provides simple, decent, affordable hous ing for low income families. Its a hand up and not a hand out. Burnham said completing the home improved the neighbor hood. This home is a safe haven for a family and we did improve the neighborhood, he said. The lots were donated and we cleaned them up and removed 14 con tainer loads of rubbish. Mosley said she and her chil dren are enjoying the home. The kids love it and picking out their rooms and the colors, she said. Its still hard to believe, but were taking it all in.

Five county schools maintained their grades, but no school was able to improve a letter grade. State education officials released elementary and middle school grades Wednesday, which show a statewide decrease in the number of A-rated schools, the result of a tougher school grading formula. Since 1999, the state has handed out A-to-F grades that are used to reward top schools and sanc tion those that get failing marks. Students this year faced a new, tougher Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test with a higher grad ing score. Also for the first time scores Grading formula toughened; scores fall across Florida. RIGHT: State education officials have not yet released high school grades, which are based on additional factors like graduation rates. The state did not issue a grade for Lake City Middle on Wednesday, likely due to error, say local officials. 600-plus seek federal aid JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter A crane is used Wednesday to remove furniture and personal items taken from homes in the Callaway subdivision after floodwaters receded. From staff reports More than 600 Columbia County residents have applied for federal disaster aid, county public infor mation officer Harvey Campbell said Wednesday. Its good that theyre doing it sooner than later, Campbell said. The impor tant thing is, do it. The figure was current as of the close of business Monday and is sure to rise, Campbell said. FEMA persists with open doors at the DRC at Suite 145 in the Westfield Square Shopping Center. The office is open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., seven days a week.

Jeremiah 32:17 NIV TALLAHASSEE An ongoing criminal case against a former top aide to Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll is transforming into a swirl of allegations about improper relation ships, widespread illegal taping and other incidents inside Carrolls office. The allegations, which Carroll denies, were included in a court filing made late last week by the attorney representing Carletha Cole, who was arrested last October on charges that she gave an illegally taped conversation with another Carroll aide to a newspaper reporter. The court filing was made in response to a push by prosecutors to keep confidential informa tion that Coles attorneys wanted to use as possible evidence in the case. In the filing, Cole con tends that she witnessed Carroll and a top aide in a compromising position inside Carrolls office, that Carrolls chief of staff secretly recorded conver sations routinely at the direction of those working for Gov. Rick Scott, and that the trash can at Coles desk might have been deliberately set ablaze following an argument between her and the aide. Cole also said at one point she was ordered by the aide, Beatriz Ramos, to find adjoining hotel rooms for Carroll and Ramos when they traveled. Cole said that she was scolded by an agent with Carrolls security team when she placed Ramos next door to Carroll when the lieuten ant governor and her hus band traveled last summer to Puerto Rico. The agent told her to not do it again, Cole says, although he did not explain why. She says Ramos was also living in Carrolls home. Carroll, a former Navy officer who is also a moth er of three, says the allega tions are all lies. Thats totally false and absurd, said Carroll, a former Republican legisla tor who was chosen by Scott as his running mate in 2010. Carroll said the allega tions are an attempt by Cole and her attorney to get the criminal charges against Cole dropped. Cole is charged with a third-degree felony and could get up to five years in prison. They are trying to pull at straws, Carroll said. All this stuff you men tioned doesnt excuse what happened. Parents infuriated over comment BRADENTON, Fla. Parents are infuriated over a Florida school districts decision to issue only a verbal warning to a teach er who described a student as the evolutionary link between orangutans and humans on Facebook. Music teacher Lauren Orban at Rogers Garden Elementary School in Bradenton, about 45 miles south of Tampa, made the comment in a Facebook conversation that included two other teachers from the school in May. She identified the 8-year-old boy by his initials. The principal was alerted and, after review ing Orbans record and discussing the matter with other school leaders, issued a verbal reprimand to all three teachers, dis trict spokeswoman Margi Nanney said. They were also given a copy of the districts rules of ethics. On Tuesday, the childs mother and her attorneys criticized the Manatee County School District for not taking tougher action. They said the districts response is a mere slap on the wrist. At minimum, the teacher should be sus pended without pay, attorney Sasha Watson said, the Bradenton Herald reported. Shipments to Cuba resume MIAMI Direct mari time shipments to Cuba are set to resume from Miami for the first time in half a century. The humanitarian ship ments will leave from a Miami River terminal through a weekly service provided by International Port Corp. The Miami Herald reports the shipments will begin Wednesday. They will include items from autho rized religious groups and charitable groups and from individuals shipping pack ages to family and friends on the island. The company says it holds licenses from both the Office of Foreign Assets Control and the U.S. Commerce Department. Shipments will cost about $6 per pound and will take between a week and two weeks to arrive, depending on their destination. Ex Carroll aide alleges misconduct NEW YORK Turns out Breaking Bad is an inadvertent argument for Obamacare. Consider: If affordable health care had been avail able to Walter White when Breaking Bad began five seasons ago, this strug gling high school chemis try teacher might not have felt driven to cook and sell crystal meth to avert finan cial ruin for his family after he was diagnosed with ter minal lung cancer. On the other hand, there would have been no Breaking Bad. This would have deprived viewers of arguably TVs most twisted, bleakly funny and just plain addictive series ever. On Sunday at 10 p.m. EDT on AMC, Breaking Bad returns for a run of eight episodes that pave the way to a final eight airing next year. By this point in its fast-evolving narrative, the formerly milquetoast teacher has morphed into a trium phant drug lord (played by Bryan Cranston) in tumultuous cahoots with his one-time slacker pupil, Jesse Pinkman (co-star Aaron Paul). Last season ended with Walt successfully assas sinating Gus Fring, the reigning meth distributor in Albuquerque, to solidify his own rule. Sundays episode picks up with the same phone call Walt placed to his wife, Skyler, moments after the monstrous Fring was blown up in last seasons finale. Its over, Walt tells her. Were safe. Long pause. Was this you? Skyler asks him, the question catching in her throat. What happened? I won, Walt growls with satisfaction. Thinking about that scene and how it gobsmacks Skyler makes Anna Gunn, who portrays her, laugh. At that moment, a ham mer comes down, says Gunn, voicing what goes through Skylers mind: We can never come back. This is a corner we can never un-turn. If Walt was involved with this guy Fring and had something to do with his death: Omigod, were in trouble! Just one of many hitches to Walts victory dance: the Drug Enforcement agents (including, inconveniently, his own brother-in-law) are hot on the trail of the mys terious Heisenberg, which happens to be Walts druglord alter ego. Gabors husband is conservator LOS ANGELES A judge has appointed Zsa Zsa Gabors husband as her temporary conservator in an agreement reached with the ailing actress daughter. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Revaa Goetz appointed Frederic von Anhalt as conservator during a brief hearing Wednesday. The appoint ment will remain in effect until the next court hear ing in January. Hiltons attorney Kennethh Kossoff says he will be receiving monthly statements on Gabors finances and spending will be controlled through a special account. He says a settlement agreement also calls for Hilton to be able to visit her weekly. Hilton sought a con servatorship in March, citing concerns about von Anhalts care and financial management. Kossoff says he is cau tiously optimistic the arrangement will work. Bryan Cranston as Walter White, right, and Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman return for season 5 of Breaking Bad, on AMC.

BROWN email@example.com The Economic Development Department continues to review proposals from local businesses on plans for expansion in Columbia county. President Paul Yatsko of Columbia Technology Inc., a waste sorting business that owns 300 acres of land in Columbia county, addressed the board concerning the marketing of 65 parcels within the companys purchased acreage. According to Yatsko, CTI uses specific technology to process and sort a bag filled with various kinds of trash into separate components. Organic matter, metals and plastics are divided into categories by weight, compo sition and other factors. Each type of trash is then processed accordingly, filling the landfill with less waste. We dont just expect you from your home to separate things out and make the trash stream clean for us, Yatsko said. We expect a Hefty bag, 50 gallon or 40 gallon or 30 gallon or a 13 gallon kitchen bag with chicken bones, diapers, anything you can put in there. Yatsko said the process saves space in a landfill by filtering out non-biodegradable materials. Byproducts produced from the sys tem can also supply added benefit. Small organic materials are composted until they transform into fine, black soil. Raw materi als such as aluminum and steel are sold for reuse. For a county, we take their dollar and stretch it sometimes double or triple in length, Yatsko said. The CTI facility in Columbia county is expected to be around 60,000 square feet on around 60 acres of land. According to Yatsko, the project is in limbo because of changes in the author ity at the county landfill. The company is also in the process of waiting for a the Department of Environmental Protection to approve a wetlands permit. Economic Development Board member Stephen Douglas told Yatsko it was impor tant to focus on the CTI project before diverting energy to selling land parcels. Were focused on your project right now, Douglas said. We have very limited resources. Yatsko argued that projects should be considered in parallel to ensure that inter ested land investors do not become impa tient. Douglas assured Yatsko that the EDD would help move the process along and get questions answered by county offi cials. CMS Staffing also presented, telling the board about their hopes for expansion in the county. CMS Staffing is health care staffing company that employs over 300 medi cal professionals in Florida as well as in Washington D.C. The company also pro duces a staffing software called Schedulit. Founder Chris Samson and account executive Byron Borchardt spoke to the board about receiving assistance for the acquisition and renovation of a new build ing. Samson said CMS Staffing already has contracts all over the country but is unable to pursue them because there is not enough room in their current head quarters to administrate that business. We are a snake in a cage, Samson said. The board agreed they would consult with county officials and attempt to find ways to assist the company. I think its a wonderful idea and we want to be as helpful as we possibly can for you, EDB member Glenn Owens said. Econ board reviews trash-sorting proposal with smart phones can make contact with the site at m.fema.gov. If you have already registered with FEMA and filed your assis tance application, please be remind ed you will have an appointment with a FEMA inspector to assess the amount of damages. If the inspector is unable to get into your home because of flood waters remaining high, youll have to contact FEMA again and arrange for a new inspection once flood waters have receded enough to allow for full access to your home or property. The emergency shelter at Richardson Middle School for resi dents displaced by the flooding has now been closed. Falling Creek Park has now reopened. The Alligator Lake Recreation Park and Rum Island Park near Fort White continue to be closed until floodwaters recede more and repairs are made to the facilities. Mosquito spraying continues on a nightly basis, seven days a week. County officials have received a new supply of pellets to treat standing water and kill mosquito larvae. Residents are urged to patrol their property for accumulated water in which mosquitoes could breed. Pellets to kill larvae in stand ing water are not available to the public at the Health Department, but residents can call the agency at 758-1058 to report locations to be treated. Columbia County has requested approval for aerial spraying from the Florida Department of Agriculture for mosquitoes, but approval has not yet been given. The Columbia County Health Department has extended its days of operation to test for potentially con taminated well water. Testing will be done Monday through Friday. A Human Services Disaster Recovery Center has also open at Suite 105 in the Westfield Square Shopping Center, 426 S.W. Commerce Drive. Red Cross, Catholic Charities, United Way, Meridian Health Care, Florida Crown and Department of Children and Family Services are among the various agencies that can provide assistance to local residents affected by the flooding caused by Tropical Storm Debby last week. The Human Services DRC will also be open from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., seven days a week. The Columbia County Citizens Information Center (CID) has reduced its hours to 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. You can contact the CIC at 719-7530. You can call to report any new sink holes you find, general questions about recovery efforts and other non-emergency issues.

I am glad I am not attending an American institution of higher education today. I would not do well. Unlike President Thomas Jefferson, who drafted the Declaration of Independence and founded the University of Virginia, I did not have the sub-lime luxury of reading original works in Greek and Latin. I had the freedom to learn for the sake of learning, for enlightenment. All of my courses were valuable, and the overwhelming majority of my schoolmates thought the same. Our course catalogs were virtual road maps to freedom, with many electives. Looking back, I realize that electives were fortifying expe-riences. By taking them, my schoolmates and I were express-ing our individuality. The lectures and texts were springboards into other intellectual adventures. I will always remember that afternoon, as a sophomore major-ing in biology, when I overheard two English majors discuss-ing Joseph Conrads Heart of Darkness. Their debate -over whether its protagonist was Charlie Marlow or Kurtz -had been so animated that I bor-rowed a copy of the novel from the library and read it over the weekend. The rest of my undergraduate years were just as intellectually freewheeling. I read on my own and traveled as often as possible. Like many of my schoolmates, I put my formal studies aside for a while. For two semesters, I registered black voters throughout the South for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. The knowledge I gained as a young civil rights worker was irreplace-able. Today, because of profound changes -including online instruction and other technol-ogy-related practices, budget constraints, fast-track graduation requirements and governing boards primarily composed of businesspeople who meddle and micromanage -campus life in the United States is a shadow of its old self. U.S. higher education is being radically commercialized. Far too many non-academics are making the big decisions, shunting aside faculty and ignoring the interests of students, who should have a direct say in their studies. I am glad I graduated during those good old days. I n the past week, I have eaten small portions of sustainable blue fin tuna, sea asparagus, crab, shrimp, octopus and raw fish. (It was a caloric experi-ment, not a dare.) So it was with great interest that I learned that the Chinese central government is banning shark fin soup at official ban-quets. I have tasted shark fin soup in China on a reporting story and enjoyed the idea of eating it very much if not the actual bland taste. But I have no doubt that I will never taste it again. And that is fine with me. Not only is it very expensive, but also the consumption of vast quantities of shark fin soup has endangered global shark popu-lations. Given all our troubles this summer, from killer fires to killer storms and an economy that seems lifeless, worrying about sharks may appear to be a luxury we dont need. But, folks, this is serious stuff. Scientists worry that every time we kill off a species, which we are doing at an astounding rate, we destroy a chance to learn more about our universe. Even worse, we may be destroy-ing a cure for a major disease or a path to some remarkable discovery that could change lives for the better. Also, plants and animal species rely on each other; when a species becomes extinct, other plants and animals are endangered. The entire eco-system is weakened. Humans spent $10 billion to build a Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland which found the long-sought Higgs boson. Particle physics will never be the same. And while we non-physicists struggle to grasp the enormity of the discovery in explaining our universe (and fail), we have to be proud as humans that there are people so smart that 1) they found the Higgs boson and 2) they under-stand it. Which is why it is so careless and shortsighted of us to destroy creatures and the ozone layer and pristine wilderness when we dont understand their significance or the ramifications of what we are doing. You would think that even in a bad economy, what we are doing to our environment would be of some interest in the presidential campaign. But is a non-issue. President Barack Obama wants to be a good environ-mental steward. But he wants even more to be re-elected and knows that talking like an environmentalist (aka tree hug-ger) wont help him because so many Americans falsely think environmental protection kills jobs. (Studies repeatedly show that being good stewards of the environment creates more jobs than it kills.) GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney equates environ-mental protection with hamper-ing big oil companies. He oppos-es mandates on businesses to clean up. He doesnt seem to think that climate change is real or if he does, he doesnt want it known because so many conser-vatives think it is akin to heresy and prefer to ignore scientific reality. It is interesting that China, which has some of the dirtiest air on the planet, is concerned enough about endangered species that it is banning (or attempting to ban) a soup that has been an important staple of lavish banquets for centuries. All over the globe we are overfishing. Such fish as Atlantic, Chinook and sock-eye salmon as well as white sturgeon, blue whales, finback whales, humpback whales, sperm whales and a wide variety of sea turtles are endangered. Some of our favorite animal species also are endangered: African and Asian elephants, bald eagles, grizzly bears, tigers, Western gorillas, cari-bou, Florida cougars, alligators, black-footed ferrets, West Indian manatees, Canadian lynxes, American alligators, jaguars, short-tailed chinchillas, black rhinos, California condors, Utah prairie dogs, whooping cranes and Northern spotted owls. It is a false argument to be told that we have to choose between the environment and jobs. No, we dont. We can be good stewards and create jobs too, and we need politicians to make that clear. Enough. Im going out for a sandwich. R adical Muslims want to tear down Egypts pyramids and take over the world. The least the rest of us can do is take them seriously. Islamist political victories in Egypt have invigorated the debate in certain circles over what to do with the countrys historical sites, or as the extremists call them, the sym-bols of pagan idolatry. The most pious Muslim theologians do not see the ancient statues, carvings and pyramids as important tourist destinations so much as affronts to their beliefs. Bahraini Sunni leader Abdal-Latif al-Mahmoud called on the Egyptians to destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what [Egypts Muslim con-queror] Amr bin al-As could not. Abdel Moneim Al-Shahat, a leading member of Egypts radical Nour party, suggested that should the pyramids be too difficult to dismantle, structures that have stood for five millennia ought at least be covered in wax to hide them from view. Others plan to bring this same degree of common sense and tolerance to the rest of the world. This week a group called the United Muslim Nations International released a 23-page pamphlet entitled The Global Islamic Civilization: The Power of a Nation Revived which out-lines a plan for Islamic world domination. The groups leader, Sheik Farook al-Mohammedi, writes in the plan that Christianity should be destroyed and wiped from the face of the earth, along with all faiths other than Islam. He maintains that submission to Allah will be the future of the Islamic State of America and Eurabia and other parts of the world not currently under the sway of Shariah. This type of grandiose vision is certainly nothing new in radical circles, as al Qaeda has been pursuing its global domination plan for years. Although Sheik Farook al-Mohammedi is a lesser-known extremist with a minis-cule following who is unlikely to surmount the Caliphs throne, hes still dangerous. The best and the brightest likewise scoffed at misfits like Hitler, Lenin and Mao until the secret police arrived. Where fanatics hold sway, they implement their plans as well as they can. In dusty Timbuktu, Mali, militants have systematically destroyed tombs and shrines that they consider idolatrous. Eight of 16 ancient mausoleums in the city have been torn apart by local radi-cals of the Ansar Dine group. The world was also horrified this week by a viral video showing a Taliban executioner shooting a burqa-clad woman nine times as a mob of men chanted God is great! The woman was allegedly accused of adultery, but may have sim-ply been the victim of a Taliban leaders jealousy. What the video showed is the rule, not the exception. Lest anyone dismiss the notion that any government would be so foolish as to destroy the only surviving ancient wonder of the world, the threat is real. The Taliban set the modern standard when they ruled Afghanistan. In 2001, they dynamited the mon-umental, 1,500-year-old Buddha statues carved into a mountain face at Bamiyan. If the radicals ever are allowed the chance of fulfilling their ultimate dreams, Mt. Rushmore wont be far behind.

Bill Maxwellmaxwell@sptimes.com Q Bill Maxwell is a columnist and editorial writer for the St. Petersburg Times. A s the economy continues to stag-nate, President Barack Obama and Congress still dither over extending income tax cuts first enacted under President George W. Bush. Mr. Obama wants to continue the reduced rates for taxpayers earning less than $250,000 a year, but let them expire for those making that amount or more, meaning the top tax rate would rise to 39.6 percent from the current 35 percent. Republicans in Congress, where they form a majority in the House but not the Senate, are insisting on extending the cuts for everybody, or making the cuts permanent. That also is the position of Mitt Romney, the presumptive GOP nominee for president. Mr. Obama obviously is making this class-warfare campaign of envy a major plank in his re-election bid. The tax-cut exten-sions might not be resolved until after the November elec-tion. Yet the news isnt all bad. The message here is that at least Mr. Obama is willing to extend the tax cuts for the middle class. Thats a posi-tive, Esmael Adibi told us; hes the director of the A. Gary Anderson Center for Economic Research at Chapman University. Having no cuts at all would be a disaster. He said the best option would be to make the tax cuts permanent. Next-best would be to pass another extension for all taxpayers, followed by the Obama option of extend-ing tax cuts for some people. Worst of all would be no extension, meaning a full whammy of tax increases on everyone. No wonder the latest numbers showed the May national unemployment rate stuck at a dismal 8.2 percent, the same as in April. Investing, hiring, spending and other fiscal deci-sions all await the voters deci-sions.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 6A for students with disabilities and English language learners counted towards the total school grade. Fifty percent of the graded schools in Columbia County earned an A, compared to 43 percent statewide. Niblack Elementary and Richardson Middle schools both dropped to a D this year from a C in 2011. Columbia City, Eastside, Westside, Pinemount and Fort White elementary schools all received an A this year and last year. Melrose Park and Summers elementary schools both dropped from an A in 2011 to a B this year. Five Points Elementary School main tained a C grade. Lake City Middle Schools grade was marked as pending by the state, although the school does not have high school grades. Millikin said the school scored more points than last year when it was an A. It was likely classified incorrectly, but the district is checking into the grade, he said. The school is expected to score and A or B, said Michael Millikin, superintendent of schools. Bradford, Hamilton and Suwannee coun ties did not have any A elementary or middle schools this year. The elementary and middle schools in Union County both earned an A. We are always disappointed when any school drops, Millikin said. We are pleased with our successes at our schools, he said. Millikin said depending on the outcome of pending scores, the district could have 10 of 13 schools with As or Bs, which is the same as last year. Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson earlier this month warned that the school grades would drop because of grading system changes. To help compensate for the changes, the State Board of Education in May voted not to let any school drop more than one letter grade. Also this year, school grades were not penalized if the lowest performing stu dents did not meet guidelines for adequate progress. The state has raised expectation for school grades five times in the past 10 years, Robinson said in a statement. Results show that after an initial drop, grades improve consistently in the following years. With the grades, the district can pin point the issues some schools are facing, whether problems are in a specific subject or with the number of students making yearly progress. Science at Niblack is a major problem, Millikin said. Richardson also struggled in science and math, but the school did make some gains in science. Science is one of newer FCAT sections, he said. Its an area we need to greatly improve, Millikin said. At Richardson, Melrose Park, Five Points and Niblack, more than 80 percent of students are on free or reduced lunch. Many of those families struggle to make a daily living. It has to have an impact on student performance, he said. High school grades, which include other factors like graduation rates and participa tion in accelerated coursework, are expect ed to be complete this winter. Millikin said Fort White and Columbia high schools are on track to receive an A. Preliminary scores show the schools total points are higher than last year, he said. The district is waiting on graduation rates to be released, but both schools typically graduate students at a higher rate than the state average, Millikin said. Florida is raising education standards because we know from past experience that students and teachers consistently rise to occasion when challenged, said Gov. Rick Scott in a press release. In just two years, Florida will move to a new testing standard that significantly reduces our reliance on the FCAT and moves to Common Core State Standards. This new system will allow us to compare our stu dents with those in other states so that we can benchmark results, measure progress, and adjust curriculum to better prepare students for college and the workforce, so that they are better able to compete in the global marketplace, Scott said. It is never easy to raise the standards for excellence in education. This year is no exception, Scott said. But every time we raise the expectations of our stu dents and teachers, they ultimately get better in later years. Simply put, raising the bar works. The Associated Press contributed to the article. GRADES: Drop Continued From Page 1A dedicated its most recent ly completed home ear lier this week, Burnham said they are looking for another eligible family so the organization can begin building again in the near future. We are currently seek ing qualified, hardworking partner families, he said. We currently do not have anyone to build another house for at this time. There are three require ments to become a partner family with the Habitat for Humanity of Lake City/ Columbia County. The requirements are: The fam ily must live in substandard housing; the family has to put 350 sweat equity hours in their home or someone elses home and the family must sign a 20-year zero interest mortgage. We would like to thank all of our donors, volunteers, advocates and partner fam ily for making this such an exciting event for the com munity, Burnham said. Burnham also spoke of presenting a Bible to the Mosley family as part of the home dedication. This organization is a Christian ministry to pro vide housing which began in 1976 by Millard Fuller and his wife Linda, he said. Thirty-six years later, this organization has 1,700 affiliates in 93 nations and has built more than a 1.5 million homes serving 2 million people around the world. The local Habitat affili ate has no paid staff and is operated by volunteers. We currently have enough money in the bank to immediately start anoth er house, provided we can get a qualified, hardwork ing partner family from Columbia County or Lake City, Burnham said. We already have the property to construct the home. We would like to emphasize more involvement from the churches and large employ ers for donors and volun teers and partner families.

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2012 7A 7AHEALTH WASHINGTON Getting older doesnt just mean a risk for physical ailments like heart disease and bum knees: A new report finds as many as 1 in 5 seniors has a mental health or substance abuse problem. And as the population rapidly ages over the next two decades, millions of baby boomers may have a hard time finding care and services for mental health problems such as depres sion because the nation is woefully lacking in doctors, nurses and other health workers trained for their special needs, the Institute of Medicine said Tuesday. Instead, the country is focused mostly on prepar ing for the physical health needs of whats been called the silver tsunami. The burden of mental illness and substance abuse disorders in older adults in the United States borders on a crisis, wrote Dr. Dan Blazer of Duke University, who chaired the Institute of Medicine panel that investigated the issue. Yet this crisis is largely hidden from the public and many of those who develop policy and programs to care for older people. Already, at least 5.6 mil lion to 8 million Americans age 65 and older have a mental health condition or substance abuse disorder, the report found calling that a conservative esti mate that doesnt include a number of disorders. Depressive disorders and psychiatric symptoms related to dementia are the most common. While the panel couldnt make precise projections, those numbers are sure to grow as the number of seniors nearly doubles by 2030, said report co-author Dr. Peter Rabins, a psy chiatrist at Johns Hopkins University. How much substance abuse treatment for seniors will be needed is a particular question, as rates of illegal drug use are higher in boomers cur rently in their 50s than in previous generations. Mental health experts welcomed the report. This is a wake-up call for many reasons, said Dr. Ken Duckworth of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The com ing need for geriatric mental health care is quite profound for us as a nation, and something we need to attend to urgent ly, he said. Merely getting older doesnt make mental health problems more like ly to occur, Rabins said, noting that middle age is the most common time for onset of depression. But when they do occur in older adults, the report found that theyre too often overlooked and tend to be more complex. Among the reasons: People over 65 almost always have physical health problems at the same time that can mask or distract from the mental health needs. The physical illnesses, and medications used for them, also can complicate treatment. For example, up to a third of people who require longterm steroid treatment develop mood problems that may require someone knowledgeable about both the medical and mental health issues to determine whether its best to cut back the steroids or add an antidepressant, Rabins said. On the other side, older adults with untreat ed depression are less likely to have their dia betes, high blood pres sure and other physical conditions under control and consequently wind up costing a lot more to treat. Age alters how peoples bodies metabolize alcohol and drugs, includ ing prescription drugs. That can increase the risk of dangerous overdoses, and worsen or even trig ger substance abuse prob lems. Grief is common in old age as spouses, other relatives and friends die. It may be difficult to dis tinguish between grief and major depression. That also means a loss of the support systems that earlier in life could have helped people bet ter recover from a mental health problem, said Dr. Paul D.S. Kirwin, president of the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry. Adding stress may be loss of a profes sional identity with retire ment, and the role rever sal that happens when children start taking care of older parents. Therell never be enough geriatric psychia trists or geriatric medicine specialists to take care of this huge wave of people that are aging, Kirwin said. The Institute of Medicine report rec ognizes that. It says all health workers who see older patients including primary care physicians, nurses, physicians assis tants and social workers need some training to recognize the signs of geri atric mental health prob lems and provide at least basic care. To get there, it called for changes in how Medicare and Medicaid pay for mental health ser vices, stricter licensing requirements for health workers, and for the gov ernment to fund appropri ate training programs. Too little mental health care for baby boomers MARILYNN MARCHIONE, AP Chief Medical Writer Were about to find out if there will be a way anytime soon to slow the course of Alzheimers disease. Results are due within a month or so from key studies of two drugs that aim to clear the sticky plaque gumming up patients brains. A pivotal study of a third drug will end later this year, and results from a small, early test of it will be reported next week at an Alzheimers con ference in Vancouver, British Columbia. These three treatments are practically the last men stand ing in late-stage trials, after more than a decade of failed efforts to develop a drug to halt the mind-robbing disease. Current medicines such as Aricept and Namenda just tem porarily ease symptoms. There is no known cure. Experts say that if these fail, drug companies may pull out of the field in frustration, leav ing little hope for the millions of people with the disease. An estimated 35 million people worldwide have dementia, which includes Alzheimers. In the U.S., experts say about 5 million have Alzheimers. The three treatments being tested are not even drugs in the traditional, chemical sense. They are antibodies proteins made by the immune system that promote clearance of amy loid, the stuff that forms the plaque. Its a strategy with a check ered history, and scientists arent even sure that amyloid causes Alzheimers or that removing it will do any good in people who already have symptoms. But there are some hopeful signs they may be on the right track. Everybody in the field is probably holding their breath that there is something posi tive to come out of these tri als, said Dr. Ronald Petersen, director of the Mayo Clinics Alzheimers Disease Research Center. It may not be a home run in terms of improving memory and cognition, but if brain imaging or spinal fluid tests show the drugs are hit ting their target, they will be regarded as successes, he said. William Thies, scientific director of the Alzheimers Association, agreed. Even if there is just a small effect, that would be a huge finding because that would let you know you had a drug that worked, he said. It then could be tried as a preventive medicine or given earlier in the course of the disease when it may have more impact. The three drugs and their developers are: Bapineuzumab (bapih-NOOZ-uh-mab), by Pfizer Inc. and Johnson & Johnsons Janssen Alzheimer Immunotherapy unit. Solanezumab (sol-ahNAYZ-uh-mab), by Eli Lilly & Co. Gammagard, by Baxter International Inc. All are given as periodic intravenous infusions; some companies are trying to refor mulate them so they could be given as shots. If a major study shows that one of the drugs works, there will be a huge effort to make it more convenient and practical, Thies predicted. Still, it would probably be very expensive. The first two on the list are lab-made, single antibodies against amyloid. Gammagard is intravenous immune globulin, or IVIG multiple, natural antibodies culled from blood. Half a dozen companies already sell IVIG to treat immune system and blood disorders. It takes 130 plasma donations to make enough to treat one patient for a year. Treating Alzheimers with IVIG would cost $2,000 to $5,000 every two weeks, depending on the patients weight, said Dr. Norman Relkin, head of a memory dis orders program at New YorkPresbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. He consults for some drugmakers and has patents for tests that measure amyloid. Relkin is also leading a latestage, 400-patient study of Gammagard that will wrap up late this year. A much smaller, earlier study he led showed less brain shrinkage among people receiving the drug than among those getting dummy infusions. It was so startling that I sent it to two laboratories for independent verification, Relkin said. Next week, at the Alzheimers Association International Conference in Canada, Relkin will give a three-year progress report on 16 patients out of the origi nal 24 enrolled in that earlier study. Jason Marder is among them. The New York City man, who turned 70 on Tuesday, was diagnosed with Alzheimers more than eight years ago. It was devastating, said his wife, Karin Marder. I thought, Our life is over together as a couple. But in fact it really has not been, and I have to attri bute this really to the clinical trial. In the roughly five years that her husband has taken Gammagard, there has been decline in his health, but it is minimal and the kind of slow ing down you might expect from ordinary aging, she said. He travels the subways, he does things that you and I do. And our quality of life together is whats most important, she said. Jason Marder said he takes a creative writing class, runs errands for his wife and bikes around the city. As for his disease, I fight it as much as I can, he said. I feel I can handle it. Its impossible to say how Marder would have fared without the treatment. Some patients decline rapidly, while others not for years. Hard evi dence comes from large stud ies like the one that will con clude later this year, in which a group of patients getting the treatment is compared with a similar group given dummy infusions. Studies on the two other drugs already have ended and results are being analyzed. The main outcome is likely to be announced by the companies as soon as it is known, and detailed results are to be pre sented at scientific conferences in October. Bapineuzumab is one of the largest bets ever placed in Last drugs standing: Key Alzheimer results coming Jason and Karin Marder pose for a picture in their home in New York. Jason Marder, who turned 70 July 10, was diagnosed with Alzheimers more than eight years ago. In the roughly five years that her husband has taken Gammagard, there has been decline in his health but it is very minimal and the kind of slowing down you might expect from ordinary aging, she said.

More than 4,000 patients are participating in four studies around the world two in people with a gene that raises the risk of Alzheimers and two in people who dont carry that gene. The studies, which started enrolling patients in 2007, involve brain scans every few months. Thats enormously expensive and time-con suming, said Dr. Eric Yuen, head of clinical development for Janssen. These experiments are just now yielding results. Concern arose when an earlier study found pos sible bleeding or brain abnormalities in up to 10 percent of patients on the drug. However, most had no symptoms and were able to resume treat ment after a brief break, Yuen said. In fact, some researchers think these changes might be a sign the drug is working to clear the amyloid plaque. The fact that indepen dent monitors have not stopped the new stud ies has made Dr. Reisa Sperling optimistic the drug will prove to be safe. Director of the Alzheimers center at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston, she has consulted for Janssen and Pfizer and enrolled patients in the studies. Relkin, who is leading the Gammagard study, said that if all three of these drugs fail, were in trouble. There hasnt been a new drug even to help symptoms in nine years, he said. Petersen of the Mayo Clinic agrees. If theyre dead-flat negative, the impact on the field and the impli cation for Big Pharma could be huge, he said. Companies may bail from the field entirely. They may just say, This nut is too tough to crack.

By TIM KIRBY email@example.com FORT WHITE The Fort White Indians 16-under softball team faced its first real adversity of the season at the state tourna ment and fought through it for a second-place finish. The 2012 Babe Ruth Softball Florida State Championships was last week at Shocker Park in Ocala. Fort White entered the tournament with a 13-0 record that included a dis trict championship and a win in a Babe Ruth World Series qualifier tournament in March. The Indians promptly dropped their first game in the tournament to Julington Creek, 7-5, on Wednesday. Fort White then won four games in the losers brack et, including a revenge win over Julington Creek. The Indians faced Southeast Volusia in the final and had to win two games. Volusia took the state title with a 7-2 win. The girls played an out standing tournament, head coach Jay Harvey said. We dropped our first game and it is hard to come all the way back in the losers bracket. Pitcher Brianna Selgas struck out three and had four RBIs in the opening game, which served as a wake-up call. Losing that first game didnt do any damage, but it made us think, Kayla Redwine said. We were undefeated before and it showed us we could lose. We regrouped and made it all the way to the final. Fort Whites comeback started in a big way with a 25-2 win over Port Orange. Ashley Chesney had three doubles and a single with four runs scored and three RBIs. Redwine had a double and four singles, with two runs scored and three RBIs. Shea Chesney had a double and three sin gles with two runs scored and three RBIs. Selgas had three hits with two RBIs and three runs scored. Caitlyn Bruce had a hit and scored three runs. Alexis Gibbons had a hit and scored twice. Bella Valdes had a hit and scored a run. Shania Pelham scored three runs and had an RBI. Madysen Greek had two hits and scored two runs. Kristen Timberlake score a run, Kateri Allen had an RBI and Cheyenne Bronson reached on a walk. The Indians beat Northside, 11-7, in their second elimination game on Friday. Ashley Chesney had a triple and two singles with three runs scored and an RBI. Selgas had two doubles and a single with three RBIs and three runs scored. Shea Chesney and Bruce both had two hits and scored a run. Allen had two hits with two RBIs and a run scored. Redwine (double, RBI, run scored), Timberlake (run scored) and Gibbons also had hits. Fort White opened Saturdays elimination schedule with a 15-6 win over Waldo. Redwine (double, sin gle, two RBIs), Pelham (two singles) and Gibbons (single) each scored three runs. Timberlake had three hits with a double and run scored. Selgas had a triple and double and scored two runs. Valdes had two hits and scored two runs. Allen had a single and scored a run. The rematch with Julington Creek came next and Fort White won, 16-12. We came together as a team and got behind Brianna, Shea Chesney said. Once we got our bats going, they couldnt stop us. We werent going to let them beat us. Gibbons had five hits and scored three runs. Redwine and Pelham each had a hit and scored three runs.

The Real L Word (Season Premiere) (N)Polyamory: MarriedThe Real L Word INDIANS: Trip Aug. 8-15 Continued From Page 1B ASSOCIATED PRESSMiami Heat president Pat Riley (left) guard Ray Allen (center) and head coach Erik Spoelstra (right) hold up Allens jersey after Allen signed an NBA basketball co ntract with the Heat, in Miami, on Wednesday. Allen, Lewis sign with Miami HeatBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI Rashard Lewis has already thought plenty about what it could mean to share the court with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Ray Allen. In short, he knows defenses could be a bit con-founded. Lewis and Allen signed their free-agent deals with the NBA champion Miami Heat on Wednesday, with talk immediately turn-ing to how the new faces both 3-point threats could extend opponents who might find themselves focusing defensively on James, Wade and Bosh. Allen agreed to join the Heat on Friday. Lewis agreed to terms with Miami on Tuesday. Neither deal could be completed until the NBAs offsea-son moratorium expired Wednesday. Allen has one championship from his time in Boston. Lewis played for a title with Orlando, falling short in the finals. And the lure of that elusive ring is what brought him to Miami. Allen was to be introduced by the Heat later Wednesday. Allen and Lewis were Seattle teammates for five seasons, from 2003 through 2007 and both figure to fit perfectly into Miamis plan to surround James, Wade and Bosh with even more shooters who can stretch defenses. Allens 2,718 made 3pointers are the most in NBA history, and Lewis ranks fifth among active players with 1,690 makes from beyond the arc. Timberlake had a double, two singles and scored two runs. Ashley Chesney had three hits and scored a run. Selgas, Greek and Valdes each had a hit and scored a run. Shea Chesney scored a run and Allen had a hit. In the loss to Volusia, Selgas (two hits) and Redwine (double) scored the two runs. Pelham had two hits, while Shea Chesney, Bruce and Gibbons each had one hit. Except for a brief stint by Shea Chesney in the Port Orange game, Selgas han-dled all the pitching duties for the Indians. For the tournament, she recorded 24 strikeouts and had 17 assists in the field. The tournament Skills Competition was Thursday and Fort White won the 16U division. The tournament brought us together as a team, Shea Chesney said. For some of us it was our third trip to state and the third time is a charm. The Babe Ruth World Series is Aug. 8-15 in Wilson, N.C., and the Indians are raising money for the trip. The team has chicken dinners on sale for $6 at the South Columbia Sports Park meeting room from 1-7 p.m. Friday. When we first started, a couple of the girls didnt know how to play, Ashley Chesney said. They all played in the state tourna-ment and did great. We have our coaches to thank for that. They pulled us through.
DEAR ABBY: Wants to Do the Right Thing (April 18) asked about using email to thank those who donated to a fundraiser for her son, who has bone cancer. What is wrong with that? I have been there. One of my twin boys was diag-nosed with cancer at age 2. I was grateful for all the help my family and friends gave me, but I did not always have the time or energy to devote to writing thank-you cards. You really have to have experienced this kind of long-term stress and trauma to understand. It takes all the strength you have to just get through each day without break-ing down. For larger donations, I would write a card when I could or print some out on my computer. Sometimes I recruited a friend or family member to handle thank-you notes. People always ask, What can I do? Well, assign them this task! Another way of thanking people was through a blog, like CaringBridge. These free websites were a great way to keep in touch with people and let them know what was going on. I often posted general notes of thanks there, then emailed everyone who contributed with a link to the site. The truth is, it was difficult to accept charity and help from others, and I often found myself overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support. -TRULY THANKFUL IN NEW YORK DEAR TRULY THANKFUL: Thank YOU for your heartfelt letter and helpful suggestions. I reminded Wants that writing personal thank-you notes was the proper thing to do, but not all readers agreed. Their comments: DEAR ABBY: Any spare time that mom has needs to be spent with her family or taking care of herself. They are going through a very difficult time. I believe that in this day and age, the majority of people would under-stand and not expect a thank-you note for their donation. So a quick email of thanks would be more than appreciated. Email is more acceptable now, especially among younger people. If this is all she has time for, its better than no thank-you at all. -KELLY IN WINCHESTER, VA. DEAR ABBY: To that mother of the child with cancer: Instead of writing thank-you notes to all the people who help you in the community, please spend that time with your son. Someday, return the favor with some other familys child. Many families in our town cope with child-hood cancer. We help each other. It is important that you spend every pre-cious moment with him, not writing cards. We all understand. -PAYING IT FORWARD IN CLYDE, OHIO DEAR ABBY: You correctly advised Wants that a handwritten, per-sonal note was in order. However, having found myself in this position, I sometimes first send out a quick blanket email to all the donors: Dear Friends and Family, you are great to contribute to our cause. Please forgive this email reply, but we want you to know right away how much your support means to us. Youll be hearing from us personally as soon as possible. This acknowledges the generosity immedi-ately, while relieving some stress for the writer at a busy time. -WISE IN WASHINGTON DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Move money around to cover your costs. A deal being offered is too good to refuse. A partner-ship will be a stabilizing factor in your life. New surroundings will give you a creative injection that improves your skills and productivity. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Listen to your heart, and dont be influenced by someone trying to manipulate your decision. Concentrate on creating your own scenario and deciding what works for you. You will learn a lot if you follow your own path. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont let the actions of others cause doubt. There is plenty you can do to improve your life if you sign up for events, activities and lessons that will benefit you. Dont be a follower when you are a leader at heart. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Keep up with the trends and the times. Updates must be made, both personally and profes-sionally. What you learn now will help you in the future. Dont pass up an opportunity to acquire skills or to get involved in a serviceable venture. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Rely on what you know, not how you feel about whats going on around you. A costly mistake will occur if you listen to some-one you love instead of relying on facts and figures to lead you in the right direction. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someones action is likely to disturb you. Take steps to secure your position and protect your assets and reputation. Travel to discuss what you want to see happen face-to-face with someone impor-tant. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You need a change of pace and surroundings. Dont be fooled into taking an expensive trip. Youll get just as much out of a more budget-friendly des-tination that lets you enjoy people, places or things you dont see that often. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Dont get wrapped up in someone elses melodra-ma. Back away from any-one trying to dump guilt or responsibilities in your lap. Do something that allows you to be creative and productive. Travel for business connections or knowledge. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Excess and oppor-tunity will go hand in hand. Showing off a little will impress the right people. Your drive, attitude and abil-ity to take action will lead to a proposal that will be too hard to turn down. Love is highlighted. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Listen carefully. You dont want to miss important information that will influence the choice you make. Not everyone will be on your team, so be careful not to fall for a biased point of view. Rely on what you know. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Make a point of spending time with positive people who have similar interests. An oppor-tunity to make a move geographically or to try out a different way of life is apparent. Educational pur-suits will give you greater skills and confidence. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont take unneces-sary risks. You must stick to what you know and do best to avoid suffering a loss. Too much of anything will not bring you the suc-cess you hope to achieve. Moderation and common sense will be required. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
