By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comWilliam Murphy will not serve a fifth year as principal of Niblack Elementary School. Murphy will instead be reassigned to an assistant principal position in the county, said Michael Millikin, Columbia County School District superintendent. The district posted a principal opening at Niblack on its website Thursday, just more than a week after the state released school grades. Niblack earned a D this year, down from a C in 2011. “Mr. Murphy will be reassigned to an administrative position as an assistant prin-cipal at a school in the district,” Millikin said. “I’m disappointed with the scores as naturally the faculty is as well,” he said. Student achievement is always at a priority, so declining school scores cause the district to look at a school’s administra-tion, he said. “I just feel there needs to be an administrative change at Niblack, for a variety of reasons,” Millikin said. During Murphy’s first year at Niblack, 2009, the school earned an A. In 2010, the school grade dropped to a D, but improved to a C in 2011. Before moving to Niblack, Murphy was an assistant principal at Columbia High School. He has a B.S. degree in math and a master’s degree in educational leader-ship. Millikin said Murphy is a caring educator. “He’s a good man,” Millikin said. “I feel like he can be successful in another school setting as an assistant,” Millikin said.

Driver’s female neigh-bor called the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office on Friday night, explaining that an inci-dent had occurred. The alleged victim said she was sitting on her front porch when Driver rode by on his four-wheeler and invited her to come to his house for a beer. The woman went to Driver’s house and drank several beers in his back yard. The suspect, his friend and another couple were present. The alleged victim told CCSO that she believed Driver had a wife and child, neither of which were present at the gathering. The woman left Driver’s house and went back to her own home across the street. Soon after, Driver knocked on Man attacked neighbor in herhome, say police.

Matthew 19:14 NIV Thought for the Day Laziness travels so slowly that poverty soon overtakes him. Benjamin Franklin TALLAHASSEE The federal Environmental Protection Agency has agreed to set deadlines for limiting haze-causing air pollution from aging power plants and factories in Florida. Earthjustice said Monday the agreement would settle a lawsuit the legal organization filed for several environmen tal groups including the Sierra Club and National Parks Conservation Association. It is subject to approval by a federal court in Washington, D.C. It requires EPA to finalize cleanup steps in two phas es with the last due July 15, 2013. EPA settled similar com plaints involving 42 other states earlier this year but excluded Florida after the state objected. The federal Clean Air Act required states to adopt plans for curbing haze in national parks, wilderness areas and wild life refuges by December 2007. Florida missed that deadline and still doesnt have a plan. Blooms prompt groups to sue TALLAHASSEE Three environmental groups sued the Army Corps of Engineers, the state and a water manage ment district Monday over smelly, slimy green algae blooms that have been pol luting the Caloosahatchee River in southwest Florida. The lawsuit in U.S. District Court here alleges the corps is violating state and South Florida Water Management District regulations by diverting water that should be going into the river to 500,000 acres of sugar cane fields instead. The Corps refusal to supply enough water from Lake Okeechobee is wrecking the Caloosahatchee, said David Guest, a lawyer for the environmental legal group Earthjustice. Its an environmental crisis, and its also an economic one. Earthjustice sued on behalf of the Florida Wildlife Federation, Conservancy of Southwest Florida and Environmental Confederation of Southwest Florida. Corps spokesman John Campbell said he had nothing to say, citing a policy against comment ing on pending litigation. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the water management district had no immediate comment. The suit seeks a court order declaring that the corps operation of water control structures violates state laws and regulations and directing it to comply with those requirements. The environmentalists say algae outbreaks in eight of the past 11 years, including one last week, have resulted in health department warnings against touching or drink ing the water or eating fish caught in the river. Its also caused Lee County to shut down a public drinking water plant that uses river water. Tourism has suffered because the green slime has caused a stench and fish kills on Gulf of Mexico beaches near the mouth of the river, they said. We are lucky to live in one of the most beauti ful places in the country, but how many tourists will keep coming here when the river is covered with stinking slime? said Andrew McElwaine, presi dent of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. Florida Wildlife Federation President Manley Fuller said marine and estuarine habitats vital to recreational and com mercial fishing are being harmed. The polluted water is killing the sea grass nurs eries at the estuary where fish and shellfish spawn, Fuller said.

EPA agrees to air pollution limits n Associated Press NEW ORLEANS When comedian Joan Rivers thought her New York apartment was haunt ed about 15 years ago, she called on New Orleans voodoo priestess Sallie Ann Glassman to perform a spiritual cleansing of the brownstone. Glassman said the pair became friends during that meeting, at which Glassman wore a flowing white gown and chased off the disturbing spirits in a night of rituals. Sallie Ann Glassman is my spiritual guide, my sounding board, my friend. Sallie arrived in New York white garb and para phernalia in tow and after an unusual night, she not only cleaned out my apartment but all the apartments in my build ing, Rivers said. It was unforgettable and extraor dinary. Most importantly, it worked. Next month, the come dian is heading to New Orleans to return the favor. The sharp-tongued Rivers will host two standup shows benefiting Glassmans New Orleans Healing Center an incu bator for about two dozen businesses and organiza tions focused on what Glassman describes as the environmental, spiritual, economic, cultural, emo tional and physical heal ing of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Receiver changes name back MIAMI Chad Ochocinco is officially no more. The Miami Dolphins wide receiver has changed his name back to the origi nal Chad Johnson. Johnson legally changed his name Monday in an appearance at the Broward County Courthouse. The change he announced via Twitter quickly follows his July Fourth marriage to Evelyn Lozada of TVs Basketball Wives fame. Johnson was known as Ochocinco for the past four seasons. The name was a playful reference to the No. 85 he wore on his jersey. Johnson was a six-time Pro Bowl receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals. He signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins earlier this year after being cut by the New England Patriots. Its a boy for Rascal Flatts NASHVILLE, Tenn.

Rescue and TraumaOne are collaborating to update and add landing zones throughout the county, making it easier and faster to treat area residents. The information will be compiled and distrib uted to emergency crews across the state. It will be the first time in recent memory the two agencies have worked together to find land ing zones, said Anthony Davis, TraumaOne criti cal care flight paramedic. TraumaOnes flight services out of the Lake City Gateway Airport cover a 60-mile radius, including areas in Georgia. TraumaOne also has a helicopter in Jacksonville, with some overlap in the service areas. The clos est helicopter responds to the emergency at hand, flying patients to Shands Jacksonville, Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville or the nearest appropriate medical facil ity. Currently Columbia County has 23 landing zones, including the two medical centers. Davis said crews hope to have 30 sites after complet ing an aerial survey on Sunday. When a patient needs to be transported to a medical center by air, landing zones are estab lished, well-documented places for air crews to meet up with fire rescue and emergency medical services. Pilots use a book of aerial photos and GPS coordinates to find loca tions and identify haz ards. Emergency crews on the ground are also given coordinates and directions to the sites. Columbia County Fire Rescue Shift Commander Tad Cervantes worked on the ground to find new landing zones and update current sites for new haz ards. Ive driven every LZ that was established in the county, he said. Cervantes said he found several errors in the cur rent landing-zone book, such as misidentified pic tures. A couple zones are now hazardous, with new houses or power lines. The information was probably last updated in 2006, he said. Updating the land ing zone was a project Assistant Chief Jeffery Crawford wanted to accomplish, Cervantes said. Veteran emergency personnel may know landing zones by gen eral descriptions, but the updates will help new crews find the sites eas ily, he said. In the future, fire rescue will try to visit and update landing sites yearly, he said. In all, Cervantes said he found 64 sites in the county that would make good landing zones, which also need to be accessible in an ambu lance and fire truck. Almost every school in a landing zone as are fire department stations, he said. With construction and plant growth, designated landing zones change all the time, Davis said. Before the collaboration, TraumaOne updated haz ards as they came across them and found new zones when needed. Hazards are hard to identify in the air, Davis said. What you see from the ground is almost completely different from the air, he said. The best sites are along major roads and places that do not have a landing zone nearby, like Lake Jeffery Road, Davis said. Cervantes said if an ideal location is on pri vate property, emergency crews have the right to assume the property dur ing an emergency. However, he asked property owners permis sion before adding their land to the list to estab lish a working relation ship. I never had an owner say no, Cervantes said. Potential landing zones west of Lake City will probably be the most used, he said. New zones will be established closer to the county line, which also helps during emer gencies in neighboring counties, Cervantes said. Using a landing zone book, flight crews can know the area before they get there, Davis said. Its a huge help, he said.

Jose Viamontes, whose organization brought pumps and manpower north at the request of the Columbia County Emergency Operations Center, said there is still much work to be done before a lot of the standing water will recede. Weve been pumping for about a month now and its probably going to be another month, he said. The biggest challenge crews face, he added, is finding areas to pump the water so that it can seep into the ground or evaporate. In addition, he said, the pumps themselves need constant attention. They need maintenance 24-hours-aday. a new principal, Millikin said. We hope to have a prin cipal on board by the time teachers and staff arrive on campus Aug. 13, he said.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Troublingwords fromthe top Q The Washington Post OPINION Tuesday, July 24, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AOPINION ANOTHER VIEW B efore dawn on Sunday, workers showed up at Penn State’s Beaver Stadium, put up a chain-link fence to keep spec-tators at bay and draped the fence in a blue tarp to block TV cameras. They then proceeded to jackhammer from its base the 7-foot tall, 900-pound statue of a man whose name is synony-mous with Penn State. All that could be seen of Joe Paterno -as his bronze like-ness was hauled off to what was, apparently without irony, described as a secure, undis-closed location -was a finger pointed skyward in the univer-sal “we’re No. 1 gesture.” In this case, it had become an ironic gesture of humiliation. In an appropriate twist of fate, the university was reap-ing what it had hoped to avoid in covering up allegations of sexual abuse of young boys by a former coach: negative publicity for the university and its football program. Now, until other scan-dals come along -and they will in big-time, big-dollar college football -the school is getting nothing but negative publicity. Shame and embarrassment were not among the sanctions the NCAA imposed on Penn State, but they may be the most effective means of seeing that a similar situation never recurs there and of giving pause to oth-ers inclined to cover up crimes for the good of a football pro-gram and a university’s image, The NCAA sanction actually had little or nothing to do with the crimes that prompted them. The football program is crippled for four years by a loss of 20 athletic scholarships each year, by a ban on post-season play, and by making it easier for players to transfer (and other schools to raid Penn State’s roster). The NCAA imposed a $60 million fine. Also Monday, the Big Ten Conference announced Penn State would forfeit its share of proceeds over the next four years, estimated at $13 million. Both amounts will go toward child-protection pro-grams. In truth, this was not a matter for an athletic association but for law enforcement. It would have been, had Paterno and university officials not chosen to keep quiet for almost 13 years about allegations that a retired Penn State coach, Jerry Sandusky, was using university facilities and his perks as an ex-coach to sexually abuse young boys. Sandusky was found guilty of 45 counts of abusing young boys and is awaiting sen-tencing. In an investigation belatedly commissioned by the university, emails turned up showing that Paterno and the administrators he technically reported to were more concerned with the foot-ball program’s reputation rather than the abused youngsters’ welfare. Moreover, Paterno, then the wins leader in major college football, had become such an institution that the Penn State hierarchy was unwilling, even afraid, to cross him. As officials in a top-flight academic institution, they surely knew of Edmund Burke’s oft-cited observation, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do noth-ing,” And that is what they did. Nothing. I dislike the use of cliches and truisms, but I accept some that nicely encap-sulate the truth of a mat-ter, like the one attributed to Albert Einstein that “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” That captures the insanity of U.S. immigration policy related to migrant and seasonal agricul-tural workers, going back to the disastrous Bracero Program of the 1940s. The program brought thousands of Mexican laborers to the United States as a way to eliminate illegal immigration. It was officially shut down in 1964. Our current policy is the same old hodgepodge of conflicting federal and state regulations. It is crafted by cynical politicians cheered on by ill-informed voters professing to believe in the mythi-cal American/Protestant work ethic, the belief that Americans work harder than anyone else, will do any kind of work -even seasonal farm work -and are fairly rewarded for their sweat and loyalty. Many years before the economic downturn that began in 2007, conservatives in many agricultural states, especially in the South and Southwest, were promoting harsh crackdowns on undocumented farm laborers. The federal government joined in by establishing tough controls along the U.S.-Mexican border and by implementing equally tough lockup and deportation procedures. Saner heads -including those of researchers, farmers and migrant/seasonal worker advocates -warned that such Draconian rules would create labor shortages on many farms. But as the economic crisis deep-ened during 2008 through 2010 and as Tea Party politics gained traction, several states, including Arizona, Alabama and Georgia, ignored the warnings and passed “show-me-your-papers” laws. At the same time, several lesspublicized trends emerged that also affect the supply of available farm labor. Immigration experts report that along with Border Patrol agents who stop Mexicans from crossing the U.S. border ille-gally, human traffickers and drug cartels are preying on would-be border-crossers, forcing many to stay in Mexico. An improving Mexican economy is also keeping many workers home. As predicted, these factors and new state laws have produced severe worker shortages coast to coast. American Farm Bureau officials say the U.S. produce industry will lose $5 billion to $9 billion in annual income because of labor shortages. In many plac-es, fruits and vegetables are left to rot, and some growers plan to cut back on next season’s planting. What are we doing to fix the problems? Officials are tweaking the H-2A temporary worker visa program that was started in 1943. It gave Florida’s sugarcane industry permission to hire thousands of Caribbean work-ers after growers claimed they could not find Americans to do the nasty, low-wage, dangerous work. The new version of H-2A is a bureaucratic nightmare for many growers, especially those who hire fewer than 10 people. Instead of passing laws that punish those who do the thank-less work the rest of us will not do, we should use the increasing labor shortage and crop losses as the opportunity to stop the insan-ity. We have a moral obligation to establish immigration legisla-tion that permanently and fairly rewards the invisible people who harvest our bounty. P resident Barack Obama, who prom-ised to transform America, told a cam-paign gathering this week, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.” Whether you take his words at face value or prefer to infer he simply meant government can help businesses by building bridges and roads, the presi-dent’s speech was troubling. Implicit in the president’s message is that private individuals and privately held companies are not sufficient. Big Government is the engine that pulls the train, in his view. The National Review’s Rich Lowry captures the president’s economic philosophy succinctly: “The Obama theory of entrepre-neurship is that behind every successful businessman, there is a successful government. Everyone is helpless without the state, the great protector, builder and innovator. Everything is ulti-mately a collective enterprise.” On even a superficial level, this economic understanding is greatly flawed, and insulting, as Mr. Obama’s likely Republican opponent pointed out. “The idea to say that Steve Jobs didn’t build Apple, that Henry Ford didn’t build Ford Motor ... to say something like that is not just foolishness, it is insulting to every entrepreneur, every innovator in America, and it’s wrong,” Mitt Romney said. On a deeper level, Mr. Obama’s vision of what made America great reveals how he would further transform an economy that already has seen his bailouts of the auto and bank-ing industries, the federalization of health care insurance and con-trived creation of profitless green industries, all at great cost but with little to show for it. What is indispensible in the American economy isn’t govern-ment. Even roads and bridges can be built by without govern-ment. But government can’t build roads and bridges without private peoples’ money. The president should have said: “If you’ve got a business – you did build that. Somebody in the government just made it more difficult for you to do it.” Q The Orange County Register I t’s a measure of how low the budget debate in Washington has sunk that President Obama’s advocacy of grossly inadequate revenue increases now stands as an outpost of respon-sibility. Income-tax rate reductions that Congress enacted in 2001, 2003 and 2010 are scheduled to expire at the end of this year. Mr. Obama has said he’d like to extend these lower rates into 2013, except for the ones that apply to individuals earning more than $200,000 and couples earning more than $250,000. For those taxpayers, rates would return to 1990s levels. We call this grossly inadequate because — as we’ve been saying since Mr. Obama irresponsibly promised dur-ing his first campaign that he would never raise taxes on the middle class — it’s impossible to tackle the federal debt by taxing only the wealthy. As the cost of retirement and health care for an aging population rises, the middle class is going to have to pay more, and federal benefits are going to have to be adjusted. But Republicans want to extend all the rate reductions, regardless of the deficit, and some of the president’s fellow Democrats, spooked by GOP anti-tax rhetoric or persuaded by their wealthier donors, are equivocating. Some, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, have suggested redefin-ing “well-off” to include every family earning less than $1 million per year, and extending the rate reduction for everyone below that level. This is a recipe for fiscal disaster — a disaster that will hurt society’s most vulnerable, because programs they depend on will be the first ones cut as federal borrowing costs rise. The Dec. 31 deadline is setting up a tiresomely familiar game of political chicken. Everyone, including Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke, agrees that letting all the tax cuts expire at once would land a powerful punch on a weak economy, especially since a package of spending cuts worth $1.2 trillion over the next 10 years would take effect at the same time. But Democrats, led by Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), are vowing to let all the rate reductions expire rather than extend them for upper-income brackets. Republicans are insist-ing they won’t compromise. No one even pretends compromise is possible before the election. The intelligent response would be to agree on long-term revenue increases and spending cuts while softening the short-term blow. It would be danger-ous to national security, as Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has argued (unsupported, thus far, by his commander in chief), to impose across-the-board bud-get reductions on the Pentagon. Allowing those and all the other scheduled spending cuts and tax hikes could shrink the economy by about 3 per cent in the first half of 2013, at the cost of 1 million to 2 million jobs, the Congressional Budget Office estimated months ago. That esti-mate might be optimistic. But it would be even less responsible to extend all tax cuts indefinitely and revoke all spending reductions without any progress on long-term deficit reduction. If the only way to achieve tax reform with a reasonable increase in revenue is to reset everyone’s rates at Clinton-era levels and then argue about which to reduce, that would be preferable to continuing on the road to catastrophe.

Associated PressThe tragedy of child sexual abuse that occurred at our University altered the lives of innocent children. Today, as every day, our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the victims of Mr. Sandusky and all other victims of child abuse. Against this backdrop, Penn State accepts the penalties and correc-tive actions announced today by the NCAA. With today’s announcement and the action it requires of us, the University takes a significant step forward. The NCAA ruling holds the University accountable for the fail-ure of those in power to protect children and insists that all areas of the University community are held to the same high standards of honesty and integrity. The NCAA also mandates that Penn State become a national leader to help victims of child sexual assault and to promote awareness across our nation. Specifically, the University will pay $12 million a year for the next five years into a special endow-ment created to fund programs for the detection, prevention and treat-ment of child abuse. This total of $60 million can never reduce the By TOM COYNE and RALPH D. RUSSOAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS — No death penalty. More like slow death. Wiped out in the record book. Wiped out in the wallet. Wiped out in the ability to recruit, and keep what it already has. Penn State got slammed by the NCAA on Monday in every way. The governing body of college sports took away 14 years of coach Joe Paterno’s victories and imposed a mountain of fines and pen-alties, crippling a program whose pedophile assistant coach spent years molest-ing children, sometimes on school property. The sanctions imposed by the NCAA on Monday also include fines of $60 million, orders for Penn State to sit out the postsea-son for four years, capped scholarships at 20 below the normal limit for four years and placed football on five years’ probation. Current or incoming football players are free to immediately transfer and compete at another school. The NCAA’s sanctions following the worst scandal in the history of college football stopped short of delivering the “death pen-alty” — shutting down the sport completely. It actually did everything but kill it. “The sanctions needed to reflect our goals of provid-ing cultural change,” NCAA President Mark Emmert said as he announced the penalties at a news confer-ence in Indianapolis. The NCAA ruling holds the university accountable for the failure of those in power to protect children and insists that all areas of the university community are held to the same high standards of honesty and integrity. Paterno’s family said in a statement that the NCAA sanctions defamed the coach’s legacy, and were a panicked response to the sex abuse scandal. The family also says that punishing “past, present and future” students because of Jerry Sandusky’s crimes did not serve justice. The Big Ten announced that Penn State would not be allowed to share in the conference’s bowl revenue during the NCAA’s post-season ban, an estimated loss of about $13 million. And the NCAA reserved the right to add additional penalties. Sandusky, a former Penn State defensive coordinator, was found guilty in June of sexually abusing young boys, sometimes on cam-pus. An investigation com-missioned by the school and released July 12 found that Paterno, who died in January, and several other top officials at Penn State stayed quiet for years about accusations against Sandusky. Emmert fast-tracked penalties rather than go through the usual circuitous series of investigations and hearings. The NCAA said the $60 million is equiva-lent to the annual gross revenue of the football pro-gram. The money must be paid into an endowment for external programs prevent-ing child sexual abuse or assisting victims and may not be used to fund such programs at Penn State. “Football will never again be placed ahead of educat-ing, nurturing and protect-ing young people,” Emmert said. By vacating 112 Penn State victories from 1998-2011, the sanctions cost Paterno 111 wins. Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden will now hold the top spot in the NCAA record book with 377 major-college wins. Paterno, who was fired days after Sandusky was charged, will be cred-ited with 298 wins. Vacated wins are not the same as forfeits — they don’t count as losses or wins for either school. “I didn’t want it to happen like this,” Bowden told the AP “Wish I could have earned it, but that’s the way it is.” The scholarship reductions mean Penn State’s roster will be capped at 65 scholarship players begin-ning in 2014. By PAUL NEWBERRYAssociated PressLYTHAM ST. ANNES, England — If this had been a normal British Open, Ernie Els would’ve been hanging out on the putting green hoping his work was done. Any other time, he wouldn’t have welcomed a playoff to secure the title. The Big Easy was willing to make an exception this time. There was nothing normal about a wind-swept Sunday at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. “Crazy, crazy, crazy,” Els kept saying. Crazy, indeed. And, for the guy who let it slip away, a gut-wrenching blow. Adam Scott had the claret jug in his grasp with four holes to play. A player of enormous potential was poised to fulfill his promise at age 32, to collect the first major championship of his career after building a comfortable lead over three days of brilliant golf. Then, a bogey. And another. And another. And finally, at the 18th hole, with a 7-foot putt to at least force a playoff, he missed again. Scott’s knees buck-led. Golf’s oldest championship had been snatched away, handed to Els with one of the great collapses in golfing history. “You’re not really hoping the guy is going to make a mistake, but you’re hoping you don’t have to go to a playoff,” said Els, who was playing two groups ahead of Scott. “This one was differ-ent because I feel for Adam. I really didn’t mind going to a playoff. He probably didn’t feel that. But I was, at best, hoping for a playoff on the putting green.” When it was done, Scott had to make a painful walk back to the 18th green to collect the prize that goes Lake City Reporter SPORTS Tuesday, July 24, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Editor754-0421tkirby@lakecityreporter.com 1BSPORTS ELS continued on 6B Els wins British Open as Scott fails to close deal.

DEAR ABBY: I was glad to see the letter you printed from “Fine With My Decision” (April 22). I placed a baby boy for adop-tion when I was 16. My parents were bitterly disap-pointed and sent me out of state. But despite my some-what immature and rebel-lious nature, I was -and remain -glad my parents made me do the right thing. In the years since, there has been a trend toward “open adoptions” and emo-tional reunions between birth mothers and adoptees who were separated under the “closed system.” I think open adoption is probably healthier for everyone except in cases of rape, incest or abuse/neglect. If the child I gave birth to were to come looking for me, I feel that’s his right and I wouldn’t turn him away. But I have never felt a desire to look for him. His birth was not a happy event in my life, and I don’t care to revisit that chapter. I don’t regard him as my son. The people who raised him are his parents, not the green kid who got herself in trouble. I’m somewhat younger than the girls who gave up babies from the 1940s to 1960s, so I didn’t get the “keep it a deep dark secret” advice. I also don’t feel I was unfairly coerced. I was 16 and couldn’t support a child. When I think of how my life would have been if I’d kept him, I’m sure I did the right thing. Thanks for writing, “Fine With My Decision.” You’ve got company in me, and I’m sure there are plenty more of us out there. -FINE WITH MY DECISION, TOO DEAR FINE TOO: Your letter expresses the senti-ments of many women who responded, as I knew they would. Their comments: DEAR ABBY: I gave up my daughter when I was 20. I have thought about her many times, but have no other feelings than hop-ing she’s OK. I gave her up because I knew I wasn’t ready for motherhood. I never married and have no other children. I have enjoyed my life. I wish my daughter, wher-ever she is, the best, and I hope her life has been great. I’d love to meet her someday, to be sure she’s all right, but if it never hap-pens, that’s OK, too. Some people are born without that “mother” instinct, and it’s best they not have children they really don’t want. Too many people become parents because they think it’s the thing to do, and the children suffer. -SINGLE AND HAPPY DEAR ABBY: I’m an adoptee and while our situ-ations are not the same, I can assure the woman who wrote you that she’s not a “freak.” I applaud her hon-esty about her feelings and appreciate her willingness to give her child the chance to connect with biological relatives who do want a relationship. The support groups she has encountered exist because people who regret their decisions need support. It’s not likely there would be groups for people who don’t feel regret. In my case, I was conceived because my birth parents wanted to make money. They were ahead of their time, shall we say, in terms of surrogate parent-hood. I wish I could have met them, but both died before I began my search. I hope “Fine” stops beating herself up and uses that energy to nurture the relationships she does have, including the one she has with herself. -REV. J. IN NEW YORK DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Slow down, take your time and don’t feel pres-sured to make a decision. Expect to face opposition that requires hands-on guidance and explanations to overcome. You will gain ground by being humble, gracious and attentive. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do whatever it takes to impress your peers. Honesty, integrity, under-standing and patience with indecisive people will be your ticket to success. Your guidance and your actions will help set a stan-dard for what’s to come. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain by taking action and following through with your plans. Let your imagi-nation take over, and you will drum up the support you require to reach your goals. Love is highlighted. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Expect opposition, and find a way to maneuver through troubled waters. Rely on the people you trust to help you find the right solution to underly-ing problems. Take care of a burden quickly and move on to more pleasurable activities. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Travel for pleasure or knowledge. Get together with friends and share your thoughts, skills and services with those who have something to contrib-ute. Talks will lead to new ideas, and plans will be put into play. Relationships will flourish. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t allow interfer-ence to get you down or stop you from reaching your goals. Stand tall and take action. Keep your thoughts and plans a secret until you are fully prepared to disclose pursuits that are already underway. Focus on work and getting ahead. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You are powerful. Put your plans into motion, and don’t be afraid to take a different approach in order to get a better result. Believing in your abili-ties, skills and experience will help you seal a deal. Romance should be sched-uled. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t let anyone side-track you with uncalled for comments or last-minute changes. Focus on creative projects. Remain in places you find tranquil and geared toward personal accomplishment. Say little; produce a lot. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Share ideas and engage in projects, activities or events that will contribute to greater development of the things you most want to pursue. Teamwork will pay off and lead to an interesting pro-posal. Love is on the rise. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Criticism will be destructive, whether it’s directed at you or coming from you. Negativity will restrict you from describ-ing your vision or seeing what others are trying to accomplish. Open up to the possibilities and bypass being held back. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Concentrate on productivity. Take on high-energy projects and do whatever it takes to alter your home and life-style to suit your needs. Love and romance are highlighted, enhancing your life and easing your stress. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There will be plenty to consider before you jump into a situation that has the potential to backfire. Make sure both you and the other parties involved have good intentions, focusing on being just and fair. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

The NCAA penalty will also affect the foot ball program. There is a four-year ban on all postseason games, including bowl games and the Big Ten Championship game, and a future reduction in the number of football scholarships that can be granted. We are grateful that the current student athletes are not prevented from participation because of the failures of leadership that occurred. Additionally the NCAA has vacated all wins of Penn State football from 1998-2011. We also welcome the Athletics Integrity Agreement and the thirdparty monitor, who will be drilling into compliance and culture issues in inter collegiate athletics, in con junction with the recom mendations of the Freeh Report. Lastly a probationary period of five years will be imposed. It is important to know we are entering a new chapter at Penn State and making necessary changes. We must create a culture in which people are not afraid to speak up, management is not compartmentalized, all are expected to demon strate the highest ethical standards, and the operat ing philosophy is open, col legial, and collaborative. Since receiving Judge Freehs preliminary rec ommendations in January, the University has insti tuted several reforms. Today we accept the terms of the consent decree imposed by the NCAA. As Penn State embarks upon change and progress, this announcement helps to further define our course. It is with this compass that we will strive for a better tomorrow. Penn State will move for ward with a renewed sense of commitment to excel lence and integrity in all aspects of our University. We continue to recognize the important role that intercollegiate athletics provides for our student athletes and the wider University community as we strive to appropriate ly balance academic and athletic accomplishments. Penn State will continue to be a world-class educa tional institution of which our students, faculty, staff and alumni can be justifi ably proud. to the runner-up. On the table was the silver chalice that shouldve been his. He gave it to Els on a silver platter. The winner hardly sound ed like one. In fact, Els was downright apologetic about the way it happened. Sorry, he said, looking toward a glassy eyed Scott. Youre a great player, a great friend of mine. I feel very fortunate. Youre going to win many of these. Scotts just coming into what should be the prime of his career. But no one real ly knows how hell bounce back from such a bitter disappointment. He has joined the infa mous list of epic meltdowns, alongside the likes of Jean Van de Velde and Ed Sneed and, yes, Greg Norman, his Aussie countryman and childhood hero. I played so beautifully all week, Scott said. I shouldnt let this get me down. Els tried to encourage. I told him, Ive been there many times and youve just got to bounce back quickly. Dont let this thing linger, said Els, who added a second Open title to a pair of U.S. Open crowns. I feel for him. But thankfully hes young enough. Hes 32 years old. Hes got the next 10 years that he can win more than Ive won. Ive won four now. I think he can win more than that. Assuming he can get over this. Scott, who went into the final round with a fourstroke lead after three straight rounds in the 60s, got off to a wobbly start with two bogeys on the first three holes. But the breeze off the Irish Sea non existent through the first three rounds blew every one else away. Everyone but Els, that is, a guy who hadnt won in more than two years, a guy whose best golf seemed behind him. Tiger Woods made a triple-bogey at the sixth, forced to take one swing while sitting on the grass next to a bunker. In one wayward hole, he lost any chance of rallying to win a 15th major title and end a more than four-year drought since his last big win. Graeme McDowell duckhooked his ball into the trees along the 11th fairway, the sort of shot that a week end duffer might hit, not the 2010 U.S. Open cham pion. Thirty-six-hole leader Brandt Snedeker also lost a ball, gobbled up by the thick rough. Els was the only one who mounted a charge, closing with a 2-under 68. But, lets face it, that shouldnt have been enough. This wasnt so much a matter of one player win ning as it was the other player losing. Scott appeared to wrap it up with a birdie at the 14th hole, restoring the fourstroke lead he had at the start of the day. Even when a shot into one of the 206 bunkers at Royal Lytham led to a bogey at the 15th, he still seemed in good shape. But when he missed a 3-footer at the 16th, there were some ominous groans from the gallery. Els, a couple of holes ahead, rolled in a 15-footer for birdie at the tough fin ishing hole. The lead was down to a single shot. Scott responded with a clutch tee shot at the 17th, right in the middle of the fairway, but a 6-iron from 178 yards landed short of the green in waist-high grass. He failed to convert the up-and-down. Just like that, the lead was gone. Then he knocked his tee shot at 18 into another bunker and took bogey. ASSOCIATED PRESS Bradley Wiggins, winner of the 2012 Tour de France cycling race, holds the Union flag during the team parade in Paris on Sunday. Brit Wiggins wins Tour By SAMUEL PETREQUIN Associated Press PARIS Twenty-three years ago, Bradley Wiggins marveled as Greg LeMond blazed a trail as Americas first Tour de France win ner. Now, he has blazed his own. The 32-year-old from gritty northwest London became Britains first win ner of cyclings greatest race on Sunday, ending a 75-year drought for his country with an imperial conquest of the roads in cross-Channel neighbor France. Wiggins had locked up the yellow jersey a day earlier by winning the final time-trial and Sundays ride onto the Champs-Elysees was largely ceremonial for him. But putting the coveted shirt to work one last time, he added a touch of class by providing a leadout to Sky teammate and fellow Briton Mark Cavendish to get his third Tour stage victory the 23rd of his career in a sprint. The Isle of Man native is a main contender to win road race gold at the Olympics in London, which has been a hovering pres ence over the peloton in this Tour. Wiggins congratulated his teammates after cross ing the line, hugged his wife, and clutched the hands of their two children. Its been a magical cou ple of weeks for the team and for British cycling, Wiggins said. Some dreams come true. This 99th Tour will be remembered for successes of other Britons too, like all-rounder Christopher Froome, who was second overall, Cavendish and Scottish veteran David Millar who won seven stages between them, a Tour record for Britain. ASSOCIATED PRESS Omega Timings Peter Huerzeler (from left) London 2012 chairman Sebastian Coe, Swatch Group CEO Nick Hayek, IOC President Jacques Rogge and Omega President Stephen Urquhart visit the Aquatics Center at the Olympic Park in London on Monday. The opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games are scheduled for Friday. Tough to keep secrets for Olympic opening By JILL LAWLESS Associated Press LONDON The London Olympics opening ceremo ny will be a grand spectacle but will it be a surprise? In a word, no. Director Danny Boyle wants the details to stay secret and games chief Sebastian Coe has pleaded for insiders to stop leaking details of the extravaganza. But in the age of camera phones and social media, not much can be kept out of the public domain. So, a spoiler alert: Stop reading now if you want Fridays opening ceremony to be a surprise. But if you are as irresist ibly curious as the rest of us, well, prepare for every thing from James Bond to Lord Voldemort to a spoon ful of sugar. The ceremonys theme is Isles of Wonder, inspired by William Shakespeares play about shipwrecked castaways, The Tempest. An actor is due to recite Calibans speech, the one that runs Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises. Few expect Boyle to deliver a sanitized image of Britain. The ceremony will open at 9 p.m. with the sound of a 27-ton bell, forged at Londons 442-year-old Whitechapel Bell Foundry, which made Londons Big Ben and Philadelphias Liberty Bell. A prerecorded seg ment has been filmed inside Buckingham Palace, reportedly involving Queen Elizabeth II and Daniel Craig as secret agent James Bond. The opening sequence will evoke a pastoral idyll, the green and pleasant land described in William Blakes poem Jerusalem, which has been set to music and is regarded as Englands unofficial national anthem. Boyle hasnt disclosed what comes next, but has said the ceremony will depict Britains past, pres ent and future.
