By ROBERT BRIDGESrbridges@lakecityreporter.comLess than an hour after casting a vote in support of LCPD Chief Argatha Gilmore and City Manager Wendell Johnson keeping their jobs, Councilman Jake Hill had a pointed exchange with Gilmore over police presence in his neighborhood and told Johnson he would seek his ouster. The comment came at the end of Mondays three-hour council meet-ing, during which state-level representatives of the NAACP and Southern Christian Leadership Conference and sev-eral citizens called for Gilmore and Johnson to resign or be fired. The claims against both centered on alleged racial misconduct. Others spoke in support of both and a formal vote of confidence was passed unani-mously by the council. Later in the meeting, Hill complained to Gilmore about crime in his neighborhood, an ongoing concern, he said. Gilmores response was not picked By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE-A four-year-old manhunt came to an end Tuesday when a man with Lake City ties was arrested for sexually assault-ing a female jogger in an affluent Gainesville neighborhood in 2008. Andrew Payne Jr., 38, was arrested in Willacoochee, Ga., around 10 a.m. Tuesday when three arrest teams con-sisting of state and federal authorities took him into cus-tody for his alleged involvement in the case. According to information from the Columbia County Sheriffs Office website, Payne was arrested twice while living in Columbia County. He was last arrested in Columbia County in February 2010, while liv-ing at 840 SW Gigi Court. His previ-ous Columbia County arrest was in April 2009 when he living at 1352 SE Putnam St. Several of his previous addresses were in Gainesville. It was not immediately clear how long he lived in Columbia County. The rape occurred May 21, 2008, around 6:30 a.m. when Payne alleg-edly attacked a female who had gone out for a jog at the intersection of CALL US:(386) 752-1293SUBSCRIBE TOTHE REPORTER:Voice: 755-5445Fax: 752-9400 Opinion ................ 4APeople.................. 2AObituaries .............. 5A Advice & Comics ......... 3B Puzzles ................. 4B TODAY IN PEOPLE Halle Berry hospitalized.

Benjamin Franklin TALLAHASSEE Floridas counties may reconsider a lawsuit over disputed Medicaid fees because the state has slashed $171.4 mil lion from their bills, a spokeswoman for their statewide association said Wednesday. That cut the disputed amount by more than half from $316 million to $146.4 million. Florida Association of Counties spokeswoman Cragin Mosteller called the reduction exceptional. She said the organiza tion is still talking with its members about its next move but is taking everything under consid eration. That includes the possibility of dropping the lawsuit thats pending in a Tallahassee court. Mosteller also praised Gov. Rick Scott for keep ing his promise to ensure counties are dunned only for what they actually owe. Scott made that pledge in March when he signed a law withholding state revenue sharing from counties that fail to pay dis puted charges going back several years. The association and 47 individual counties out of Floridas 67 then sued in state Circuit Court challenging the new law. No hearing has yet been set in the case. Counties are billed for a portion of the services their residents receive from the state-federal health care program for low-income and disabled patients. The lawsuit alleges the counties are being over charged because of mis takes made by the states electronic billing system. It cites such examples as Alachua County being billed for applications that failed to list a billing code because its first on the alphabetical list of counties and various counties being billed for nonresidents. That includes Escambia County getting bills for residents of neighboring Escambia County, Ala. Lawmakers who sup ported the law, which passed on largely partisan votes in the Republicancontrolled Legislature, contend the counties are simply refusing to pay their fair share because their budgets are pinched in tough economic times. The association on Friday sent its members a memo urging them to share your apprecia tion to Scott, noting the governor and other state officials have spent the past three months review ing the backlog of county Medicaid bills. Fla. counties win juvenile dispute TALLAHASSEE An administrative law judge says Florida is illegally shift ing millions of dollars in juvenile detention costs to the states 67 counties. A Department of Juvenile Justice spokeswoman Wednesday said the agency was reviewing the decision and had not yet decided whether to appeal. Administrative Law Judge W. David Watkins ruled on Tuesday in Tallahassee that a department rule improp erly requires counties to pay for detention until a juvenile is committed. The state then assumes those costs. Watkins noted state law says the dividing line is final court disposition, which often comes after a commitment decision. He wrote that counties were overcharged as much as $18.35 million in the 2008-09 budget year and up to $5.4 million in 2009-10. Those are the last years for which figures were submit ted to him. Salazar: GOP budget bad LOXAHATCHEE NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Wednesday that budget proposals by congres sional Republicans could amount to a death knell for conservation programs nationwide. Visiting the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge outside Boynton Beach, Salazar at times struck a political tone, criticizing the GOP while touting the Obama administrations Everglades restoration efforts. He said he feared a turnaround in a variety of conservation efforts because of budget cuts that basically decimate core programs. A great fear I have is that there will be a Uturn, he said. The state and fed eral governments recently cleared a major hurdle in the seemingly never-end ing Everglades clean-up, with a judges approval of an $880 million plan to try filtering phosphorous from water flowing into the ecosystem. Phosphorous comes, in part, from fer tilizer and promotes the growth of unhealthy veg etation that chokes native plants.

Berrys Los Angeles publicist Meredith OSullivan said the 45-yearold actress suffered the injury Tuesday night on the set of her upcoming movie The Hive. Berry was taken to a hospital as a precaution and released a short time later. OSullivan said the Oscar-winning actress will continue work on the film. Calls and emails seek ing comment from Troika Pictures and WWE Studios, which are produc ing The Hive, were not immediately returned. The Hive is a thriller co-starring Abigail Breslin and David Otunga. Lindsay Lohan takes new role LOS ANGELES Lindsay Lohan has secured her next movie role. Producer Braxton Pope says Lohan will star in The Canyons, a film writ ten by Less Than Zero author Bret Easton Ellis about sex and ambition among 20-somethings in Los Angeles. Paul Schrader, who wrote Taxi Driver and directed American Gigolo, is set to direct the film. The new role comes amid Lohans ongoing legal issues, a recent car crash and run-in with para medics. Her publicist, Steve Honig, says the 26-year-old actress has been on set since last week. Lohan recently com pleted work on the Lifetime movie Liz & Dick, in which she played Elizabeth Taylor.

truck and possibly a fork lift for the Florida Gateway Food Bank, a Catholic Charities program, said Suzanne Edwards, chief operating officer for the local Catholic Charities. The food bank dis tributes food to partner agencies in Columbia, Hamilton, Suwannee and Union counties. A refrigerated truck is essential for transport ing food from stores to the food bank and delivering it to mobile distribution sites, Edwards said. Currently, Catholic Charities leases a truck, but sometimes worries about making the pay ment, she said. We are just over whelmed with joy that our corporate partnerships have thought so highly of our mission, which is putting compassion into action, she said. We just have a great responsibility for the com munity, said Terry Baker, PotashCorp-White Springs, who presented the check from coporate during the Catholic Charities Board of Directors meeting Wednesday. The outreach efforts of our food back in provid ing food, water and relief supplies following Tropical Storm Debby to impacted residents was a great service to our communi ties, Baker said in a press release. We hope that our contribution will assist in outreach efforts to our local community, he said. Baker also serves on the Catholic Charities Board of Directors. County commission ers Rusty DePratter, Jody Dupree and Scarlet Frisina also attended the meeting to thank Catholic Charities for helping residents. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for what you did, Dupree said. Residents may never know how much Catholic Charities did, but I know theyd thank you the same, he said. Edwards said Baker came to the nonprofit with the donation after touring the food bank and seeing the logistics of moving thousands of pounds of food. Employees use pallet jacks to move food, a more difficult task than using a forklift. PotashCorp mines and manufactures phosphate for fertilizer, used to feed the world, Baker said. The work that Catholic Charities does with the food bank, its a perfect fit for what we do, he said.

A certain population of mosquitos had to be observed in the county before state and federal agencies could approve aerial spraying, said Harvey Campbell, county public information officer. Aerial spraying will cover 116,512 acres in Columbia County, he said. Vector Disease Control International was contracted to do the aerial spraying. The company has a fleet of twin-engine, fixed-wing aircraft and contracts with eight other states, according to the Vector web site. Flight crews use night vision goggles during nighttime spray missions and equipment charts the sprayed areas on maps. Since widespread mosquito spraying requires the controlled use of chemicals, all state and federal approval steps are designed to make sure significant action is required and the public, as well as domestic and wild animals, are protected, Campbell wrote in a press release. Several state and federal agencies must be involved to assure all public health interests are considered, includ ing the Florida Department of Health, Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Federal agencies include FEMA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention along with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. By law, insecticide formulations must be among those approved and registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for use in urban areas for mosquito con trol. In addition to the aerial spraying planned for both Wednesday and Thursday nights, Columbia County has five trucks equipped with mosquito spraying equipment that are working areas of the county seven night per week. The county is also placing larvicide pellets in areas with standing water. To help control the mosquito population, residents are urged to remove all contain ers that hold water from around homes and cut tall grass. To protect against mosquito bites, stay inside after dusk and before dawn, wear protective clothing and spray with insect repellent containing DEET if you do need to be outside. Residents with questions about either the aerial or truck-mounted mosquito spraying in Columbia County should con tact the county Health Department at 758-1058.

BY E-MAIL: email@example.com TV warsbeingfought Q The Washington Times Q The Washington Times OPINION Thursday, July 19, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AOPINION ANOTHER VIEW F ollowing the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, I expected there would soon be a consensus across ideological, national and other lines that terrorism is wrong -that no political goal or grievance justifies intentionally murdering innocent men, women and children. I was wrong. Last week, the Pew Research Center released the results of a poll finding that Iran, the worlds leading state sponsor of terrorism, is viewed favorably by 76 percent of the popula-tion of Pakistan, ostensibly one Americas closest allies among those nations self-identifying as Islamic. Iran also is viewed favor-ably by 39 percent of Tunisians, generally regarded as among the most moderate of Arabs. In Egypt, 19 percent -a not-insignifi-cant minority -have a favorable view of al-Qaida. In America and Europe, fewer people smile on terrorists but many are determinedly nonjudg-mental. Recall Reuters global head of news, Stephen Jukes, just after 9/11, saying that in his news organizations view, one mans terrorist is another mans free-dom fighter. Canadian author George Jonas, with his customary verbal preci-sion, called that an adolescent sophistry. Now consider the Global Counterterrorism Forum, cre-ated under the Obama adminis-trations leadership to provide a unique platform for senior coun-terterrorism policymakers and experts from around the world to work together to identify urgent needs, devise solutions and mobi-lize resources for addressing key counterterrorism challenges. Twenty-nine countries have been admitted, but Israel, argu-ably targeted by more terror-ists than any other nation, has been excluded. In remarks to a meeting of the forum in Madrid last week, Undersecretary of State Maria Otero failed even to include Israel in a list of victims of terrorism. Also in recent days: A U.S. Senate resolution introduced by Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and Marco Rubio, R-Fla. -calling on the International Olympic Committee at the London Olympics July 27 opening cer-emony to observe a moment of silence to honor the 11 Israeli athletes murdered by Palestinian terrorists 40 years ago in Munich -received unanimous support. But IOC members have refused. Is that because they are not sure whether those who slaughtered Olympians were terrorists? Or is it because they think it prudent not to offend any terrorists who may be summering in London? Could the fact that the victims were Israelis -or Jews -play a role? In Denver last week, there was the grand reopening of the Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab, a unique museum intended to help teach the public about terrorism of all kinds (not just the Islamic variety), why its a threat to all civilizations (not just the West), and how it can be defeated (determination and vigi-lance are key). Before an audi-ence of nearly a thousand, Denver Post publisher Dean Singleton moderated a discussion between former Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff and me. Planted throughout the audience were protesters. Every so often, one would stand up and begin shouting. One yelled, Terrorism is not real! Another proclaimed, Bees kill more people than terrorists! Another angrily insisted that the FBI has no proof that Osama bin Laden was responsible for 9/11 -to which Chertoff replied that not only is there abundant proof of the al-Qaida leaders guilt, it also happens that there has been a landing on the moon. There were not many of these demonstrators, and they do not represent most people in Denver, America or the West. But, as noted above, anti-anti-terrorists are hardly a rare species. And arent the members of the IOC and Global Counterterrorism Forum closer in outlook to them than to people like Chertoff and me -people who believe that terrorists, their funders and supporters must be confronted and crushed, not appeased and accommodated? In 1980, a generation before the attacks of 9/11, the great historian Paul Johnson lamented that we have almost forgotten how to arm ourselves against barbarism. We can, in fact, do it in only one way: by stating that terrorism is always and in every circumstance wrong ... that it must be resisted by every means at our disposal; and that those who practice it must not only be punished but repudiated by those who share their political aims. Ive always found that logic compelling. I would have thought that by now most people -cer-tainly those in the U.S. State Department and those dedicated to the Olympic ideal -would have grasped it. I was wrong. I t should be clear by now that Barack Obama is running his shaky presi-dential campaign in 3-D: dishonesty, deception and distraction. It is an age-old re-election strategy to try to get the voters focused on tangential matters that are irrelevant to the larger issues that plague our country like severe unemployment that has turned the lives of tens of millions of Americans into a desperate struggle for survival, weak economic growth that has shrunk middle-class and small-business incomes, and four straight years of trillion-dollar budget deficits that now threaten Americas solvency and prosper-ity. President Obama is hoping that he can fool just enough of the people into giving him another four-year term, even though he has failed to fulfill his 2008 campaign promises to put the country back to work, boost middle-class incomes and cut the deficit in half in his first term. Instead, he is running a duplicitous, negative campaign against Mitt Romney while ignoring all of the problems he has failed to fix and that still plague our country. Lets start with dishonesty and deception. Mr. Obama is running vicious ads attacking Mr. Romney, charging that his investment firm, Bain Capital, made business deals that went sour and outsourced jobs around the world. Several respected fact-checking groups and newspaper journalists have found these alle-gations to be false. The Obama campaign failed to make its case. On just about every level, this ad is mislead-ing, unfair and untrue, from the use of corporate raider to its examples of alleged outsourc-ing. Simply repeating the same debunked claims wont make them any more correct, said The Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler. He awarded the Obama ad Four Pinocchios, the worst score he can give to a false ad or claim. Mr. Kessler returned to the Obama attack ad on Sunday in response to a warmed-over Boston Globe story that used documents he and other papers examined months ago. The year 1999 is important because that was when Mr. Romney left his company to res-cue and run the Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. The alleged outsourcing business investments by Bain occurred after Mr. Romney stepped down from his companys day-to-day operations. When fact-checking showed that Mr. Romney was across the country devoting himself full time to lifting the Olympic Games out of impending bank-ruptcy, Mr. Obamas attack squad came up with a new charge: He was still listed on Securities and Exchange Commission filings as chief executive officer and president of Bain. In contrast, Mr. Obama has sunk at least $40 billion into green technology firms, many of which had connections to his biggest campaign contributors. A growing number, like the California-based Solyndra solar panel company, have declared bankruptcy, leaving taxpayers to foot the bill for billions of dollars in bad loans. Mr. Obama went around the country touting these deals as job creators, but with relatively little to show for it. Some of these firms dont employ as many people as you might hope, said administration economist Jared Bernstein, who helped implement the program. Maybe the SEC can look into these questionable deals, too. T he latest brawl in the entertainment industry came to a head last weekend. Screens went dark for many of the 14 million sub-scribers to the Dish Network who attempted to tune in to watch Sundays season premiere of AMCs hit show, Breaking Bad. The satellite-television provider couldnt agree to contract terms with the upstart channel. Just a few years ago, AMC was a forgot-ten graveyard for black-and-white films. Carrying this old material was cheap, but things began to change in 2007 when the station became home to the original series Mad Men, which has won the best drama Emmy four times in a row. Now that its a hot commodity, AMC wants more money to cover rising production costs. Dish thinks the price being asked is too high. Both companies made the decision they believe serves their long-term interests. Such disputes are common, but this time customers arent entirely left in the cold by the impasse. AMC will allow anyone to watch the show for a limited time on its website for free. Amazon and iTunes also offer episodes for $2, and the latest television sets can stream these videos with-out need of a computer. Those without an Internet connection can wait for the DVD. The premise is that Uncle Sam isnt doing enough to combat piracy and counter-feiting, so Washington needs to step up its game. Never mind that we already have an undersecretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and an Intellectual Property Enforcement coordinator. The Patent and Trademark Office, Border Patrol, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and Department of Justice are all actively engaged in enforcing existing laws. This is all why, instead of more laws, we need apprecia-tion for the technologies that give consumers what they want, when they want it. I f the European debt crisis worsens -or worse yet, spreads here -the United States could be pushed into a shallow recession next year, choking off what has been a steady, if somewhat anemic, eco-nomic recovery. Theres little the U.S. can do about that except cross its col-lective fingers and hope that the European Union strikes a suc-cessful balance between austerity and pro-growth measures. However, a worse economic crisis is looming, which the Federal Reserve describes as a fiscal cliff, and the solution to that impending disaster is entirely in American hands. But in whose hands, exactly?Somehow, between now and Dec. 31, Congress has to agree on whether to extend most or all of the George W. Bush-era tax cuts that are set to expire at mid-night. And lawmakers must agree on the level of federal spending for fiscal 2013 to avoid harsh, automatic, across-the-board spending cuts. Congress adopted the automatic pilot plan on the assumption that the prospective cuts would be so damaging that its members would be galvanized into reaching reasonable compromises. That hasnt happened. Those Washington observers who think that Congress wouldnt be so reckless and foolhardy as to march lemming-like over that cliff are beginning to sound a trifle uneasy. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke made his midyear pilgrimage to Capitol Hill on Tuesday and told the Senate Banking Committee, without making any helpful specific recommendations, that Congress must work to address the nations fiscal challenges in a way that takes into account both the need for long-run stability and the fragility of the recovery. With interest rates near zero, Bernanke has few options other than another round of buying up shortand long-term bonds, the so-called quantitative easing. Nonetheless, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said, Given the political realities of this years election, I believe the Fed is the only game in town. I would urge you, now more than ever, to take whatever actions are warranted. So get to work, Mr. Chairman. That was even less helpful than Bernankes advice to take into account long-term stability and short-term fragility. Moreover, the central banker was having none of it. Congress is in charge here, not the Federal Reserve, Bernanke said. And hes right. Cliff May Q Clifford D.

Passer-by blocks escape of alleged thief From staff reports A Lake City man, allegedly attempting to steal a refrigerator from an abandoned home, was detained by a good Samaritan who used his vehicle to block the mans escape until authorities arrived. Philip Haywood Christie, 44, 7 SE Camp St., was charged with burglary and pos session of burglary tools in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center on $20,000 bond. According to Lake City Police Department reports, around 11 a.m. Wednesday, officers responded to 362 SW Columbia Ave. after a someone called the police station and said he had detained a burglar at the address. Officer Louis Troiano responded and found Christies vehicle backed up to the back door of the home and a refrigerator in the doorway. David Mangrum told authorities he used his vehicle to block the driveway and then called police, essentially blocking Christies path until authorities could take control of the situation. Mangrum told Troiano he was passing by the abandoned home when he noticed Christies vehicle backed to the rear door of the house. Mangrum said the trucks tailgate was down and he saw Christie trying to get the refrigerator out the back door and into the truck. Christie told Troiano an unknown neighbor told him the residence was abandoned and he could enter the home and claim items. Christie reportedly then changed his story and told authori ties he was house hunting and was inter ested in the house. As Troiano continued with his investiga tion, he reportedly discovered two boxes of tile and an electric motor in the back of Christies 2006 blue Toyota Tundra. The property owner, Sandra Duren, told authorities that the tile and electric motor came from the shed in the backyard. She also said the house was not for sale. Authorities reported the door to the home was forced open and on the seat of Christies truck a multi-tool wrench was found that matched the pry marks on the door of the home and the shed. Christie tered with FEMA. FEMAs Lake City Disaster Recovery Center remains open in the Westfield Square Shopping Center, on Southwest Commerce Drive, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Hours have been reduced on Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. Recovery centers in Clay, Highlands and Bradford counties will close July 21 at 6 p.m. Anyone who experienced floodwater inside their home should register with FEMA in case damage is discovered at a later time, like mold growth, said Anne Waggnoer, FEMA public information officer. The Columbia County Public Works Department reported Tuesday that 16 county roads remain closed due to flooding. In addition, State Road 247, Branford Highway, also remains closed near the Columbia/ Suwannee county line. FEMA: $4.4M payout Continued From Page 1A Southwest 46th Boulevard and Southwest 91st Street. The assault occurred in the Indigo Square neighbor hood, which is part of Haile Plantation. Art Forgey, an Alachua County Sheriffs Office public information officer, described Haile Plantation as being an upscale com munity with a golf course and jogging trails. It was a violent crime just because of the amount of brutality and injuries that were inflicted on the victim at the time, which required some hospitaliza tion, he said. They were serious injuries, but none life-threatening and they required her to be trans ported to the hospital and in the hospital for a while for the treatment of those injuries. He said the victim has recovered from the physi cal injuries she suffered in the attack. She has recovered fully from it and was very relieved and very pleased at the news that he was arrest ed yesterday (Tuesday), Forgey said. Payne became a suspect in the case last week after a DNA match identified him. It was DNA that we recovered at the original attack, Forgey said. The DNA evidence was originally collected by authorities after the crime. Through technological advances in the last four years, authorities were finally able to get a match. We sent it to a lab and got the results back last week, Forgey said. Alachua County authori ties secured a warrant for Paynes arrest Monday afternoon and had him in custody Tuesday morning. Authorities are also look ing at the possibility that Payne maybe a suspect in other sexual battery cases in Alachua and surround ing counties. Right now he is not a suspect in any other cases, Forgey said. However, we are looking at other rapes and attacks not only that weve had but reports from other area law enforcement agencies. Forgey said once author ities determined who the suspect was, they started running down Paynes acquaintances and family members trying to get as much intelligence on him as possible, which led them to Coffee County, Ga. Authorities had about three locations where Payne might be, and set up on each of the three locations before narrowing their search to one loca tion and moving the arrest teams to that site. We made announce ments for him to come out and he came out after about three minutes after the first announcement, Forgey said. He was taken into custody without incident and detained at the local sheriffs office there. No one else has been arrested or charged with anything in the case. Payne is charged with sexual assault in the case. According to information from the Alachua County Sheriffs Office, Payne has been charged with 16 dif ferent felonies, 12 misde meanors and seven other charges throughout his lifetime. Forgey said the charges included crimes such as aggravated battery, domes tic battery, battery on a pregnant female, robbery and several other offenses. SUSPECT: Man with local ties faces rape charges Continued From Page 1A TDC seeks bed tax hike to 4% up by an official audio recording of the meeting. Hill replied, Heard that one before. The Lake City Reporter had left the proceedings in order to make a midnight press deadline. Hill later questioned Johnsons objections to Hills riding with city workers to assess flood dam age fom Tropical Storm Debby. You have told your department heads about treating people like theyre going to be your boss, Hill told Johnson. Im going to start treating you like Im your boss. Well, you always have, I think, Johnson answered. Im going to take it to the next level, Hill replied. What is that, a threat, Mr. Hill? Are you threaten ing me? No, thats a promise. Whats the next level? The next level is asking for your resignation. Then do it now. Hill told Johnson he would address the matter in due time. On Wednesday Hill said his dispute with Johnson was unrelated to allega tions made earlier in the meeting by state-level NAACP and SCLC repre sentatives. That had nothing to do with that, he said. As for his views on Gilmore, Hill said he would await the outcome of at least one racial dis crimination lawsuit now pending against the city. Im going to wait and see what happens in court, he said. Johnson, who is employed by the city coun cil, declined comment Wednesday. HILL: Wants resignation Continued From Page 1A Johnson However, district officials are not yet sure why the school wasnt issued a grade. The state has not opened the appeals pro cess yet, he said. If district staff finds errors in the computation, they will file an appeal, Millikin said. Columbia Countys dis trict grade dropped to a C, after four years of earning Bs. Even though the majority of the districts in the state declined a letter grade, we are still disap pointed, Millikin said. Millikin said he is some what surprised the grade was issued when there are still three pending school grades in the district. High school grades reflect testing scores and graduation rates, so grades are not issued until fall. Millikin said it looks like the state took into account points for Lake City Middle as well as high schools testing scores when calcu lating the district score. How can three of 13 schools not receive a grade and the state issue a district grade that is mean ingful? Millikin said. The schools with pend ing scores are all high achieving that earned an A or B last year, he said. DISTRICT: LCMS pending Continued From Page 1A
First peanuts, now eggs. Doctors have reversed allergies in some children and teens by giving them tiny daily doses of problem foods, gradually training their immune systems to accept them. In the best test of this yet, about a dozen kids were able to overcome allergies to eggs, one of the most ubiquitous foods, lurking in everything from pasta and veggie burgers to mayonnaise and even marshmallows. Some of the same doctors used a similar approach on sev eral kids with peanut aller gies a few years ago. Dont try this yourself, though. It takes special products, a year or more and close supervision because severe reactions remain a risk, say doc tors involved in the study, published in Thursdays New England Journal of Medicine. This experimental ther apy can safely be done only by properly trained physi cians, says a statement from Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the fed eral agency that sponsored the study. It didnt work for every one, and some dropped out of the study because of allergic reactions. But the results really do show there is promise for future treatment and should be tested now in a wider group of kids, said the studys leader, Dr. A. Wesley Burks, pediatrics chief at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. More than 2 percent of young children have egg allergies, suffering wheezing and tight throats or even life-threatening reactions if they eat any egg, Burks said. Many will outgrow this by age 4 or 5, and more will by the time they are teens, but 10 to 20 percent never do. The big worry is that these kids will eat eggs as an ingredient in a food they dont realize contains them, and have a severe reaction. Training a childs immune system to toler ate even small amounts of egg to prevent this was the goal of the study. It enrolled 55 children ages 5 to 18. Forty were given tiny daily amounts of powdered egg white, the part that usually causes the allergy. The other 15 were given cornstarch a dummy treatment for comparison. The amounts were increased every two weeks until kids in the treatment group were eat ing about one third of an egg each day. They periodically went to their doctors to try eat ing eggs. They failed the test if a doctor could see any symptoms such as wheezing. At about a year, none receiving the dummy treat ment passed the egg chal lenge. Those on the egg white powder fared better. At the end of the year, half of them passed. At the end of two years, 75 percent of them passed, Burks said. Next, he went a step fur ther, to see if participants could maintain tolerance without the daily powder. Those who passed the second test stopped using the powder, avoided eggs entirely for four to six weeks, then tried eating eggs again as they wished. Eleven of the 30 kids were able to do this with no problem. The treatment worked for 10-year-old Nicholas Redmond of Huntersville, N.C., near Charlotte. Avoiding eggs has been a huge problem, said his father, Chris Redmond. Now Nicholas has some egg nearly every day to maintain his tolerance, which his father finds ter ribly ironic. You spend 2 1/2 years avoiding eggs and now have to make sure he gets some, Chris Redmond said. Nicholas said the hard est part of his allergy was turning down birthday treats at school. I would say no thank you and I had this little treat box with stuff filled for class parties, he said. Now, I can have eggs in cake and cookies if they dont contain pea nuts, he said. Hes also allergic to those, and will start sensitization therapy for peanuts next month. Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2012 7A 7AHEALTH MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Court of Appeals on Tuesday upheld the convictions of a former nurse who hunted for suicidal people in online chat rooms and encouraged two to kill themselves, saying his actions were not protected speech. William Melchert-Dinkel, 49, of Faribault, was convicted in 2011 of two counts of aiding suicide. He acknowledged that what he did was morally wrong but argued that he merely exer cised his right to free speech. The appeals court disagreed. We are confident that the Constitution does not immunize Melchert-Dinkels morbid, pred atory behavior simply because it appears in the form of written words, the justices 31-page decision said. Melchert-Dinkels attorney, Terry Watkins, said that while his clients actions are unsavory, he still believes they are pro tected by the First Amendment. He plans to appeal to the state Supreme Court. We never saw this as a two inning game, he said. These are still not cut and dry issues. Court documents show Melchert-Dinkel was obsessed with suicide and searched online for depressed people. When he found them, he posed as a suicidal female nurse, feigned compassion and offered instruc tions on how they could kill themselves. Melchert-Dinkel told police he did it for the thrill of the chase. According to court documents, Melchert-Dinkel acknowledged participating in online chats about suicide with up to 20 people and entering into fake suicide pacts with about 10, five of whom he believed killed themselves. He was convicted last year in the deaths of 32-year-old Mark Drybrough, of Coventry, England, who hanged himself in 2005; and 18-year-old Nadia Kajouji, of Brampton, Ontario, who jumped into a frozen river in 2008. In the decision, written by Judge Kevin Ross, the Minnesota Court of Appeals found the states assisted suicide statute does not violate the First Amendment because it prohibits speech that is integral to con duct the state seeks to prevent. The First Amendment doesnt protect all speech absolutely, the court said. In arguing to overturn the conviction, Watkins said his client didnt talk anyone into suicide but instead offered emotional support to two people who had already decided to take their lives. Prosecutors said he convinced his victims to do something they might not have done without him. The appeals court agreed. The justices noted that both Drybrough and Kajouji died shortly after Melchert-Dinkel sent each of them a series of Internet messages prod ding them to kill themselves. They said Melchert-Dinkel clearly advised and assisted Drybrough by providing instruc tions, and he encouraged Kajouji by fortifying her suicide decision through deceit. Put in its true light, MelchertDinkel hunted emotionally vulnerable persons pitiable victims of obvious mental ill ness who stood precariously on the edge of death, the justices wrote. Then, veiled behind a fictitious identity and deceitful words ... he pushed. Melchert-Dinkel was sen tenced to more than six years in prison, but he wont serve that if he follows terms of his parole, which include 360 days in jail. The jail time which was on hold while his appeal was pend ing was split so hell serve 320 days upfront, then two-day stints on the anniversary of each victims death for 10 years. Watkins said he plans to file a request asking that the jail term again be put on hold pending an appeal to the higher court. Assistant Rice County Attorney Benjamin Bejar said the decision is so encompassing and examined the statute in light of multiple First Amendment challenges that it will likely affect another assisted-suicide case in Minnesota. In that case, four members of a national right-to-die group called the Final Exit Network have been charged with assist ing suicide in the 2007 death of a 57-year-old suburban Minneapolis woman. Officials with the group have also chal lenged the constitutionality of Minnesotas law. Melchert-Dinkels case came to the attention of Minnesota authorities in 2008, after a British citizen contacted St. Paul police over concerns about an online predator who was encouraging people to hang themselves. Authorities traced the chats to Melchert-Dinkels home in southern Minnesota. Suicide advocate loses court appeal William Melchert-Dinkel arrives at the Rice County Courthouse in Faribault, Minn., with his wife, Joyce, for his sentencing. The Minnesota Court of Appeals on Tuesday affirmed the convictions of the former nurse who was found guilty of aiding the suicides of two people.

WASHINGTON For Gov. Rick Perry, saying no to the federal health care law could also mean turn ing away up to 1.3 million Texans, nearly half the unin sured people who could be newly eligible for coverage in his state. Gov. Chris Christie not only would be saying no to President Barack Obama, but to as many as 245,000 uninsured New Jersey resi dents as well. The Supreme Courts recent ruling gave gover nors new flexibility to reject what some Republicans deride as Obamacare. But theres a downside, too. States that reject the laws Medicaid expansion risk leaving behind many of their low-income uninsured residents in a coverage gap already being called the new doughnut hole a reference to a Medicare gap faced by seniors. Medicaid is a giant fed eral-state health insurance program for the poor, now mostly covering children, mothers and disabled people. The expansion in Obamas health care over haul was originally expected to add roughly 15 million uninsured low-income peo ple, mainly adults without children, who currently are not eligible in most states. Washington would pick up the entire cost for the first three years, with the fed eral share then dropping to 90 percent. The Medicaid expansion accounts for about half the total number of uninsured people project ed to get coverage under the law. If every state were to reject that Medicaid expan sion as the Supreme Court ruling now allows some low-income people would still be picked up by other coverage provisions meant to help the middle class. But nearly 11.5 million uninsured people below the federal poverty line would be left behind in a new coverage gap, according to recent estimates from the Urban Institute. That brings to mind the infamous doughnut hole in the Medicare prescription drug benefit, in which seniors with high drug costs find themselves paying out of pocket much of the year. Those who fall into the new gap would neither qualify for Medicaid in their states under current rules nor be eligible for subsi dized private insurance in new state marketplaces that Obamas law calls exchanges. Low-income children and mothers would continue to have insurance through Medicaid. Then, starting in 2014, millions of people over the poverty line would have subsidized private coverage through the new exchang es. And then this group in the middle has nothing, said Matt Salo, executive director of the National Association of Medicaid Directors. His organization takes no position on what states should do. Things only get trickier from there. Many states might actually go along with the Medicaid expansion. This is a lot of federal dollars that will lead to a lot of people having health care, said Salo. That means federal taxes from states opting out would be helping to subsidize coverage else where. And hospitals in opt-out states would still get hit with cuts programmed in the law under the assump tion that every state would take the Medicaid expan sion and fewer uninsured people would be needing charity care. You are still paying for that coverage expansion but not getting the benefit of it, said Herb Kuhn, president of the Missouri Hospital Association. So you as a state are exporting your dol lars to another state. If you have some adjoining state that accepts (the Medicaid expansion) then you are basically sending your dol lars to your neighbor. Kuhns state is leaning against the expansion. Since the Supreme Court ruling last month, Republican lead ers in at least 10 states have indicated they will reject or lean toward rejecting the Medicaid expansion. They cite a combination of reasons, including strained budgets, lack of confidence that Washington will honor its financial commitments in the long run and years of frustration with Medicaid mandates that limit state choices and shift costs from the federal government. But other state officials are saying they will study their options and wait until after the November elec tions to decide. If Republican Mitt Romney wins the White House and starts disman tling Obamas law, opt-out states might not have to face the Medicaid doughnut hole. But the whole calcula tion changes if Obama is re-elected and his overhaul starts looking more and more like a done deal. If that happens, some experts expect that states now refusing will try to cut deals with the federal government, angling for concessions on the expan sion itself or the rest of their Medicaid programs. One of the things that happens in cases like these is negotiated settlements with specific states, said Dan Mendelson, president of Avalere Health, an analyt ical firm serving health care industry and government clients. What I expect to happen here is that the fed eral government is going to be more flexible and allow states to do the expansion in ways that suit them. Its hard to see that hap pening now. Opponents of the health care law are as adamant as ever, even after the Supreme Court upheld most of it, includ ing the mandate that most Americans carry health insurance or pay a fine. I will not be party to socializing health care and bankrupting my state in direct contradiction to our Constitution and our found ing principles of limited gov ernment, Texas Gov. Perry said last week. About onefourth of Texas residents are uninsured, the highest percentage of any state. But John Hawkins, top lobbyist for the Texas Hospital Association, says his group will stand pat. We have told the gover nor we are willing to con tinue the discussion, said Hawkins. Its hard to imag ine how you get from here to there without accessing federal funds at some level. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 8AHealth Accepting New Patients Medicare, Blue Cross and most insurance plans accepted, worker compensation Specializing in adult medical care including: Primary Care High Blood Pressure Heart Disease Lung Disease Gastrointestinal High Cholesterol Diabetes Headache Evaluation and Treatment Arthritis Low Back Problems Evaluation and Treatment Optifast Weight Loss System Full Dizziness, vertigo and balance diagnosis and treatment Womens Health Accepting New Patients SOUTHERN INTERNAL MEDICINE Located in the Lake City Mediplex Building 404 N.W.

Shumlin has been saying the state would push ahead no matter how the recent ruling from the Supreme Court turned out. But the law remaining in place is expected to mean Vermonts health overhaul will be helped by up to $400 million a year in federal tax credits and other subsidies. ASSOCIATED PRESS Texas Gov.

Crushers coach Chad Padgett brought in some of the best instructors from around the area to help teach the areas youth the basic fundamentals of softball. Kyle Reed of the University of Florida softball camps leads the instructors along with Nikki Reed, University of Texas player Taylor King, Lana Hunter of Rollins College and former All-American Katee OQuinn from Erskine College. We have them doing everything from teach-ing them how to hit inside pitches, to live scrimmage situations to hitting off the tee, Padgett said. Were working on a little bit of everything. More than 40 players signed up for the camp numbers slightly down from previous years but the Crushers werent discouraged. Thats something weve seen from all the camps weve been to, so were thinking it has to do with the economy and flooding, Padgett said. Those players that did sign up from ages 7-15 are working on an array of skill sets. The younger kids were basically teaching the prop-er way to run, throw and hit, Padgett said. The older group were teaching a little bit more of the advanced stuff. Theyre learning how to hit pitches that are inside and away, where to finish with their swing and game-play scenarios. But this isnt the same old camp every year. Padgett said they try to keep their look fresh for those that continue to come back each season. Every year were working on new skills and drills, he said. Every day were working on something new. It varies by ability, but well have specific drills based on where each player plays. Kyle, our lead instructor, will come up with different drills based on what he sees in each player. A big thing this year has been working on players fielding. One thing wed like to see is player improvement with lateral movement, Padgett said. We see that they have the ability to go front and back, but we want to work on their side to side movement. The camp concludes on Friday when the Crushers will divide into two teams in two age groups and scrimmage. At the end of the scrimmage, players will work on sliding technique in a fun way by adding water to the mix with a slip n slide. All benefits from the camp will go to sending the Crushers to the USSSA World Series. Were trying to raise money to take 13 girls out of town, shirts and trading pins, Padgett said. The World Series takes place on July 28-Aug. 4 at the Wide World of Sports in Orlando. The Crushers are coming off a seventh place finish in state. We finished seventh in state and competed in the showcase, Padgett said. We even had a couple of girls in the 14-under group get talked to by college coaches. BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterTaylor King from the University of Texas helps Emily Ea die during the Columbia Crushers Elite Softball Camp on Wednesday at the Girls Softball Complex in Lake City. Tigers set for FCA campBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High will embark on a trip to Deland today to compete in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes football came against some of the states top powers. Coach Brian Allen is looking forward at the chance to compete. Just like last year, this is another opportunity to work within our system, he said. Were going to get a chance to have several different looks. Were going to tape it, so well have film and another opportunity to learn. The big thing is that its padded and live, just not to the ground. Were going to play with a swarming mentality. Well have looks of everything well see this season from the pro-style, option and wing-T. Among the teams expected to compete against the Tigers are Apopka, Lakeland, Deland and Santa Fe. Were going to go against some really good teams, Allen said. And thats a chance for young players to shine. The idea is to see where we are as a team, Allen said. Im looking forward to seeing Lonnie Underwoood compete. I think hes going to surprise some people this year and Im eager for those to learn who he is that dont already know. Im not so much worried about Laremy Tunsil, Jayce Barber, Trey Marshall and those guys. Im looking to see what Rakeem Battle is going to do at a new position (corner). Im excit-ed about the young guys. I know what I should get out of the seniors. Another important aspect of the camp is team building. Last year it was big for our commradarie, Allen said. Everyone shared why they play the game and there werent too many dry eyes. Im eager to have some of those moments again this year. Columbia will compete through Saturday at the camp. Allen looking forward to competition. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Terry Calloway competes in a drill d uring summer workouts.

R The Real L Word Leap of Faith (N)Polyamory: MarriedThe Real L Word Floridas sack leader will play in 2012By JOHN ZENORAssociated PressHOOVER, Ala. Florida coach Will Muschamp said defensive end Ronald Powell will play this season and tight end A.C. Leonard will play elsewhere. Thats part of what the Gators know, who will play quarterback remains an open question going into preseason camp. There is apparently a dead heat for the job between sopho-mores Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel. It could be both, maybe at once. Both guys are very talented, Muschamp said Wednesday at Southeastern Conference media days. Both guys are certainly qualified for the position. If you saw the spring game, you saw what I saw for 14 practices: Two guys that are very even in that competition. Theyre even going into fall camp and theyll get equal reps. Id like to name a starter before the season but Im not going to put a timetable on that. If we need to play both of them, thats what were going to do. Well do what we need to do to win football games. Theres a possibility you could see both in the game at the same time. Perhaps the best news for Gator fans Wednesday is that Muschamp believes Powell will make it back this season. The starting end and team sack leader tore a knee ligament in the spring game, leaving his status a big question mark. Muschamp said Powell has been cleared for all weight-room work, includ-ing squats, and straight-ahead running. Hell play for us this year, the coach said. When that will be, I dont know yet. Theres nobody thats worked harder or handled the situation bet-ter or more mature than Ronald has. Hes grown up through the summer. Leonard, meanwhile, is leaving the program in what Muschamp described as a mutual decision. He was arrested on domestic vio-lence charges in February. Muschamp said he met with Leonard Tuesday and they decided it would be better off for him to trans-fer. It was shocking but it wasnt as shocking know-ing where hes come from and what hes been deal-ing with since hes been at Florida, Gators defensive end Lerentee McCray said. Muschamp said backup cornerback Jeremy Brown was undergoing surgery Wednesday morning to repair a fractured wrist but should be back for the opener with Bowling Green. Brown has already missed three seasons with injuries. As for the quarterbacks, McCray said it was a win-win situation. Brissett and Driskel combined for just two touchdowns and were intercepted six times last season, filling in when starter John Brantley was injured. Thats going to be a tough decision for coach Muschamp and the offen-sive staff because both of them look really good right now, McCray said. We feel like we can win with either one of them. Whoevers at quarterback, Muschamp is empha-sizing two big areas for improvement. The Gators ranked 113th nationally in turnover margin, which he says makes it a minor miracle that his first team managed to win seven games. He called that debut season very frus-trating, disappointing. Then there was the fourth quarter problems in SEC games. League oppo-nents outscored Florida 72-22 in the final quarter, and Muschamp called his team soft after the regular-season finale with Florida State. Thats one of our main things going into this year, linebacker Jon Bostic said. Weve got to to finish in the fourth quarter. If we dont finish in the fourth, the year will turn out the same as last year.Miami dismisses ArmstrongCORAL GABLES Miami kicked senior safety Ray-Ray Armstrong off the football team Wednesday, and said it would give him a full release should he decide to transfer. Armstrong was suspended for four games at the start of last season because he broke NCAA rules by accepting gifts from a for-mer Miami booster.
DEAR ABBY: What do you think about a grand-mother getting into a Jacuzzi with her 6-year-old granddaughter? This has caused a big rift in our family. At a large recent family gathering, my daughter couldnt accommodate all of us sleeping at her home, so some of us rented rooms at a nearby motel. My son-in-laws parents took my granddaughter Charise to their room to spend the night. The bathroom had a Jacuzzi tub in it, and Grandma and Charise bathed in it together. When they told my daughter about it the next day, she became upset because she thought it was inappropriate for an adult to be in the tub with her young daughter. My daughters motherin-law said she was not ashamed of her body and she refused to apologize to my daughter for what happened. My son-in-law has sided with his mother. What do you think? -SHOCKED IN CINCINNATI DEAR SHOCKED: I fail to see what the uproar was about, since the grandmother and grandchild are the same sex and we all come with the same standard equipment. Its not worth causing a rift in the family -so tell your daughter to cool down and stop making waves. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have a problem with my husband, Howard. I moved two hours away from my fam-ily, left my job and sold my house and car to be married to him. Now I feel trapped. We have been married three years. It wasnt like this in the beginning. Im a housewife who takes care of his mother who lives with us (another story). I cant go anywhere. Im at home all day, every day, except when his mother needs to go to the doctor. He refuses to get another car because hes afraid Im going to meet someone else if I go out. Howard doesnt like my friends -the three that I do have. He has taken church away from me because he believes a husband and wife should go to church together, and he doesnt, therefore neither should I. Hes verbally abusive and manipulative. I feel I cant do anything right, and he proclaims to be a perfectionist. Everything revolves around him and his likes, needs and wants. This is a second marriage for both of us. He admits that hes insecure. I love him, but I cant take this anymore. I want to leave, but I dont know how or where to begin. If I were to go home, Id have nothing -no home, no car, no job or money. We have no children together. What is your advice? -TRAPPED IN THE SOUTHWEST DEAR TRAPPED: By now you must realize there is no way to assuage your husbands insecurity and need to control. No wonder this is his second marriage. Im betting it wont be his last, either. Look at it this way: He has a housekeeper, a built-in caregiver for this mother and someone whose every move he can control. There are worse things than going home, start-ing from scratch and rebuilding your life. The first that comes to mind is continuing to live in a marriage like this one. So please, pick up the phone and ask your fam-ily to come and get you. And if you are afraid that he could become violent, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline. The toll-free number is 800-799-7233. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Schedule fun activi-ties that will challenge you mentally and physically as well as bring you in contact with people you want to get to know better. An adventuresome, take-charge attitude will bring great results. Romance is on the rise. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do what you feel will bring the best response. Less talk and more action will result in better rela-tionships with the people who mean the most to you. An updated look or meth-od of getting things done will pay off. Avoid pushy people. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont let anyone limit what you can do. Demand to know whats going on if you are being given the runaround. Make altera-tions that improve how you feel about the way you look and the way you pres-ent what you have to offer. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Someone you feel responsible for is likely to cause you worry or loss. Find out the facts before defending someone who may not have told you the whole truth. Dont get angry; make adjustments to protect your home and family. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Emotions may be difficult to control if you dont plan your day carefully and focus your energy on get-ting along with and enjoy-ing the company of people you find entertaining and who have a calming affect on you. Love is highlight-ed. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Spend time mastering something you enjoy doing that has potential to bring in extra cash. Dont give up one thing for another. Balance and precision will allow you to do both to the most benefit. A lover or colleague will disappoint you. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You have options, but being lazy and letting someone else do for you will lead to loss. Take the initiative and invest in your talent, not someone elses. Love is on the rise, and romance should be insti-gated. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Listen, but dont reveal your plans. Someone will take advantage if you are too accommodating. An emotional situation will change quickly if you arent attentive. Prepare to counteract any misunder-standing that occurs. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stay on top of any money or medical issues that arise. You stand to benefit from doing the right thing at the right time. An emotional matter will lead to the changes you want to see happen at work and within your personal relationships. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Do the legwork and cover all the pos-sibilities when working alongside someone who may not be as diligent as you regarding integrity or money matters. A conver-sation will reveal the dif-ferences between you and the person you are dealing with. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Dont feel you have to take sides. Follow your heart and it will lead you to the best place you could be. A strict budget will pay off, allowing you to make posi-tive changes to your sur-roundings and your domes-tic situation. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Do your best and work as hard as everyone around you, but dont reveal your true feel-ings. Someone will want to make you look bad. Withhold information that may incriminate you or be misinterpreted. Jealousy is apparent. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
