BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comThe Economic Development Advisory Board narrowed their focus for economic development within the county to four main areas for future development: Bell Road, Ellisville, Highway 47 and the Intermodal site, also known as the RACEC Catalyst site. Lake City Director of Utilities Dave Clanton gave a presentation to the EDAB Wednesday on utility infrastructure currently present as well as potential options for future sites. EDAB member Glenn Owens said knowing the infrastructure helps pri-oritize sites already identi-fied. This gives us three viable options without big costs upfront, 47, Bell Road and Ellisville, Owens said. Now were fishing with three big hooks, EDAB member Terry Dicks added. The intermodal site was also discussed as an obvious place of economic potential. The biggest thing that creates non-growth as it relates to government is that the focus becomes so broad that nothing ever happens, county commissioner Jody DuPree said. I think that if you are going to accomplish any of it, you have to focus your vision to what is manageable and allow it expand from it. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLocal authorities are searching for an armed man who walked up to a fast food restaurant drive-through window early Wednesday and pulled a pistol on an employee in a failed rob-bery attempt. Unable to get cash, the suspect fled on foot. Authorities are looking for a black man, 3540 years old, with dreadlocks to the middle of his face. According to Lake City Police Department reports, around 12:24 a.m. officer Larry Thomas was dispatched to McDonalds, 491 SW Main Blvd., for an attempted armed rob-bery. Teresa Perez, a McDonalds employee, told authorities she had just taken a food order when she saw a black, handgun coming through the drive through window. Perez reported that the suspect appeared at the window holding a yellow Dollar General bag, demanding that she fill it with money. Perez said she told the man she did not have a key or pass code to open the cash draw, but the man again demanded that she fill the bag. Perez again explained to the Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER and HANNAH O. BROWN/ Lake City ReporterTOP: A home and vehicle are seen submerged after Tropical Storm Debby.

The network announced Wednesday that Jon Stewart has extended his contract to host The Daily Show through the middle of 2015. Stephen Colbert also signed an extension that takes him through the end of 2014 as host of The Colbert Report. Last week, each show was nominated for four Emmy Awards. Colbert has hosted The Colbert Report since 2005. Stewart has presided at The Daily Show since 1999. Both are also pro ducers and writers of their shows. Bieber paparazzo faces charges LOS ANGELES A paparazzo photographer faces criminal charges in connection with a highspeed chase of Justin Bieber earlier this month, marking the first use of a state law designed to clamp down on photogra phers reckless pursuit of celebrities. The City Attorneys office on Wednesday filed four charges against Paul Raef, 30, including reck less driving with the intent to capture pictures for commercial gain, reckless driving, failure to obey a peace officer and following another vehicle too closely. Raef could not be immediately reached for comment. If convicted, he faces up to one year in county jail and $3,500 in fines. The charges stem from a July 6 incident where Los Angeles Councilman Dennis Zine, a former police officer, and three other motorists called 911 to report a high speed chase along the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley. Prosecutors said responding officers saw a pack of six vehicles pur suing a silver Fisker car, which turned out to be driven by Bieber. A Toyota SUV, owned by Raef, was seen driving at speeds well over 80 miles an hour across all lanes and on the shoulder, as well as forc ing its way into lanes when it had no room to merge safely. Motorists were forced to brake and swerve to avoid colliding with Raefs vehicle and the others, prosecutors said. Bieber pulled over when officers signaled to, but Raef did not stop. Bieber was cited for speeding and released. Prosecutors said that about 30 minutes later, Bieber called 911 and said he was again being followed by the same Toyota. California Highway Patrol officers arrived at a down town Los Angeles park ing garage, where other paparazzi had congregated, and found the Toyota with the same license plate as the one that had chased the singer. Officers identified Raef as the driver. He scheduled to be arraigned Aug. 9. Toy maker sues Lady Gaga NEW YORK A toy company is suing Lady Gaga for more than $10 million, claiming the pop star improperly backed out of a deal to make a doll in her likeness that would play snippets of her music. In a suit filed in New York City on Tuesday, MGA Entertainment says it paid a $1 million advance to the company that han dles Gagas merchandizing and spent a mint racing to meet deadlines to ship the dolls this summer. But the toy maker says the plan was derailed in the spring when the merchandizer, Bravado International, abruptly balked at the part of the deal allowing the dolls to use the singers music, then tried to delay sales of the doll until next year. A representative for Lady Gaga called the law suit ill-conceived. Balloon sold as trading cards LOVELAND, Colo. Pieces of the infamous flying saucer that starred in Colorados balloon boy hoax are now available as trading cards. Michael Fruitman, the balloons current owner, struck a deal with New York-based sports and entertainment card compa ny Topps to use a segment of the Mylar saucer for individual trading cards.

Cormac McCarthy MIAMI Three grue some deaths at the pri vately run South Florida State Hospital triggered an investigation that revealed concerns that employees were overmedicating patients and failed to call the state abuse hotline after a patient died in a scalding bathtub, accord ing to documents obtained by The Associated Press. State officials requested a review of the facility in response to significant events in past several months, including the deaths. The state also reviewed cases of individu als who had been placed into solitary confinement and restraints multiple times and other incidents at the facility, but the report offered few details of those incidents. The 335-bed facility, located in Broward County, is operated by The GEO Group Inc., a Boca Ratonbased firm that is one of the worlds largest private operators of prisons and detention centers. Many of the patients are mentally ill and admitted against their will because they are con sidered a threat to them selves or others. Some are admitted because they are not competent to stand trial, but dont need to be in a high-security facility. Pablo Paez, its vice president of corporate rela tions, declined comment Wednesday. The state has paid the company over $500 million to run the hospital since 1998. It was one of the first state civil psychiatric hospitals in the U.S. to be fully operated by a private company. Gov. vacationing out west TALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scotts office isnt saying much about his vacation. Spokeswoman Jackie Schutz responded to a request for information about his trip with a brief statement saying only that he was out west with his family and would return next week. Scott last year bought a home and 60 acres in Montana. His public schedules have been blank since Saturday, but Scott has been in touch. The governor on Tuesday issued a state ment announcing he was appealing a judges ruling that blocked enforcement of a law barring govern ment contracts with com panies doing business in Cuba or Syria. Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, though, has been on the clock. She was in her office Wednesday and scheduled to visit the Department of Economic Opportunity in Tallahassee. No bond for hazing suspect TALLAHASSEE A judge has denied bond to a former Florida A&M University band member charged in the hazing death of drum major Robert Champion. Circuit Judge Frank Sheffield rejected the request Wednesday from Caleb Jackson in Tallahassee. Jackson has been jailed on a charge of violating probation for a prior bat tery conviction resulting from a fight at Tallahassee Community College since his arrest on the hazing charge three months ago. Defense lawyer Chuck Hobbs said Jackson is the only one of 13 defendants in the hazing case who is not free on bond. He is set for trial in October. Champion died last November after being beaten with drum sticks and mallets and fists aboard a bus in Orlando, where the band had gone for a football game. Man dies after brawl in St. Pete ST. PETERSBURG St. Petersburg police are investigating after a 59-year-old delivery man died after brawling with another man outside of St. Anthonys Hospital. Authorities say the deliv ery man was unconscious when police arrived early Wednesday morning. He died a shortl time later in the hospital. Twenty-four-year-old Kevin Parkhurst told police the delivery van cut him off as he was riding his bicycle. After a verbal altercation broke out, Parkhurst says the deliv ery driver got a baseball bat from the van. Police say the men struggled over the bat before Parkhurst hit the man in the face with his fist. When Parkhurst told the man he was calling police, he put the bat in the van. Then he stumbled and fell to the ground, hit ting his head. No charges have been filed. DCF reviews deaths at GEO-run state hospital n Associated Press ASSOCIATED PRESS Stephen Colbert, left, and Jon Stewart appear on stage at Comedy Centrals Night Of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert For Autism Education at the Beacon Theatre in New York. Comedy Central announced Wednesday, July 25, 2012, that Jon Stewart has extended his contract to host The Daily Show through mid-2015. Stephen Colbert also signed an extension that takes him through the end of 2004 as host of The Colbert Report. The cards are included in the recently released 2012 Topps Baseball Allen & Ginter Relics Set, the Loveland Reporter-Herald reported (http://bit.ly/ MGRmkt). The silver, UFO-like helium balloon gripped the countrys attention in 2009 when Richard and Mayumi Heene said their 6-year-old son had floated away in it. The parents were charged when it was dis covered the boy was never onboard the saucer, and they were ordered to pay $36,000 in restitution. The Heenes lived in Fort Collins at the time but have since moved to Florida. Fruitman acquired the balloon from the couples California attorney, who says the Colorado man paid $2,502 for it in an auction. The Mylar-adorned trading cards are available from eBay sellers seeking anywhere from 99 cents to $49.99 each. They also can be bought for $3 a pack from mass retailers. Harry Potter star Grint carries Olympic flame LONDON Rupert Grint has lent a touch of Hogwarts magic to the Olympic torch relay, car rying the flame for a leg in northwest London to cheers from hundreds of well-wishers. Grint, who played Harry Potters faithful friend Ron Weasley in the popular movie franchise, started his leg of the relay at Middlesex University on Wednesday. He was mobbed as he finished his run. The 23-year-old actor said that he had not known what to expect, as running was kind of a new thing for him, but he was helped by the fact that most of his section was downhill. The relay ends Friday when the last torchbearer lights the cauldron at the opening ceremony in the Olympic Stadium to mark the official start of the London games. Katy Perry signs on for snack brand Popchips NEW YORK The snack brand Popchips is getting a new celebrity endorser Katy Perry. According to a com pany statement released Wednesday, the pop star has become an investor and representative for the chips. Perry says shell be its creative partner. Perry, who is the subject of the recently released 3-D documentary, Katy Perry: Part of Me, joins Ashton Kutcher as a celebrity endorser of the snack food. Kutchers regional ads garnered some criticism earlier this year when one depicting him as an Indian man was seen by some as racist. It was pulled and the company said there was no intent to offend. Perrys ads will be unveiled in the fall.

Brown, Columbia County director of central communications, who is credited with improving and modernizing the countys emergency communication system and infrastructure, retired Tuesday. As the county director of central com munications, Brown was responsible for the countys communications infrastruc ture. When I first got here we had a lot of old equipment and with the help of the sheriff, county commissioners and county officials, we literally brought the county from the stone age to Star Wars over night, he said. Weve done a lot since Ive been here. The county should be very proud of what it has. Dale Williams, county manager, said Brown played an important role in improving the countys emergency com munications system, even though he was only here for four years. A few years ago the county invested a substantial amount of money in improving 9-1-1, Williams said. The county bought state of the art equipment and modified a building to accommodate it. Williams said part of the upgrade included things most people typically dont consider as part of 9-1-1, including communication towers and radio. Communication towers and radio are part of the 9-1-1 system that has the most exposure and highest probability of fail ure, he said. Doug Brown was our first ever communications director. We knew what we needed and put somebody in there and gave them trial by fire. Brown ended up being that person. Williams said through Brown the county learned that it is much better and responsive when there is a person there who can repair radios and communication equipment on site. Because of Brown, those exposures are supported by a parts inventory and Dougs experience, Williams said. So, the things that were trouble and prob lematic for us for days and even weeks in most cases, now are repaired and operational in hours. Brown was the first person who was able to help us get to that level and because of that we have a much more efficient and effective communica tions system. Brown plans to go into the mission field for Baptist missions where he will be going to the Philippines as a missionary with the Southern Baptist Convention. Brown plans to leave Friday morning. Ive always looked forward to this, Brown said. I always wanted to do this and God has presented this opportunity to me for right now and I am really for ward to it. Everything has seemed to work out to Gods will. Id like to thank everybody, he contin ued. Its breaking my heart that Ive got to go, but Im looking forward to brighter things. Before coming to Columbia County to work, Brown worked with the Gadsden County Sheriffs Department for 16 years, also in the communications department. Communications director retires after making big impact. and later called police; July 18, at 7:09 p.m., a cashier at the CVS drug store on U.S. Highway 90, reported that an unknown black woman attempted to pay using a coun terfeit $20, but was refused and walked out of the store; July 18, around 8 p.m., a store manager at the CVS on Baya Drive called and reported that sometime during the evening an unknown cus tomer presented three counterfeit $20 bills to purchase goods; July 22, at 3:30 p.m., a customer attempted to pay for merchandise at the Family Dollar Store on South Main Boulevard using a counterfeit $50; July 22, at 8:15 p.m., the clerk from S&S Food Store No. 3 on East Duval Street reported a black man came into the store and attempted to pay for sev eral items using a counterfeit $20 bill. The clerk also said another customer attempted to pass a $50 bill earlier in the day but the sale was refused; July 22, at 10:45 p.m., a heavyset black man walked into the S&S Store No. 33 on North Marion Avenue and attempted to purchase items using a counterfeit $50 bill; July 23, a clerk at the Best Western Inn on U.S. Highway 90 called to report that a middle-aged white man stayed overnight at the hotel and insisted on paying with cash. The man paid cash for the room with two counterfeit $50 bills; July 24, an assistant manager at McDonalds on Southwest Main Boulevard reported that over the pre vious few days the store had taken in two counterfeit $20 bills and one counterfeit $5 bill; J uly 24, a clerk at the Sav-A-Lot food store on East Duval Street called and reported a black man was just leaving the store who attempted to pay for two packs of hot dogs with a coun terfeit $20 bill. When asked about the bill, the subject fled from the store. Our investigators are working hard to apprehend the suspects who are committing this counterfeit operation in our community, said LCPD Chief Argatha Gilmore in a prepared state ment. We need our business owners to be proactive and to be alert to any suspicious activity as they exchange currencies in their businesses. Dont hesitate to call us and report the suspi cious activity. LCPD Sgt. Investigator Paul Kash is heading the investigation. He rec ommends local businesses take a few extra seconds and feel the bills, check for known security measures in the currency and to use their counterfeit ID pens. BILLS: Counterfeit currency Continued From Page 1A The group plans to move forward in nurturing relationships with landowners and businesses to find options for future development. The key to driving the economic engine of Columbia County is how do you put these part nerships together and everybody be on the same team getting there, DuPree said. SITES: Econ board Continued From 1A By HANNAH O. BROWN firstname.lastname@example.org County officials and FEMA representatives urge residents affected by recent flooding to make sure their applications for assistance are complete before giving up on the process. The majority of people today who are being denied FEMA benefits are not because they dont qualify, its because the paper work isnt complete, county manager Dale Williams said. They will deny you on the basis of an incomplete application so people need to understand why they are denied. FEMA public information officer Anne Waggoner said denial letters are sometimes sent out for very simple mistakes. The most important thing people can do if they get a denial letter is to read it through, Waggoner said. Waggoner said in order for flood victims to get assistance down the road for unforseen problems that were caused by the flood, they must register now. Its an easy process, it only takes 15 min utes, Waggoner said. Williams said he has seen many denial let ters from FEMA that were based solely on an incomplete application. Right now, they can go to that disaster recovery center. There are people sitting there, they will do it for you, Williams said. When theyre gone, its a lot harder to get the applications complete. The Disaster Recovery Center, located at Westfield Square Shopping Center, is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Flood victims losing out on FEMA aid due to paperwork

BY E-MAIL: email@example.com The Washington Times OPINION Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A 4AOPINION ANOTHER VIEW A s measured by a recent Gallup poll, the U.S. Congress has a public approval rating of 17 percent. It is a dubious honor the lawmak ers have worked hard to earn. At the end of the year, the members of Congress will face a situation whose resolution -it can be said with only slight exaggera tion -is a matter of life and death for the U.S. economy. At midnight Dec. 31, the Bushera tax cuts are scheduled to expire, which the Obama White House says will mean an average tax increase next year of $1,600 for 114 million families, a body blow to the economic recovery. Simultaneously, a 10-year, $1.2 trillion, across-the-board cut is to be imposed on federal spending, also likely to be very damaging to the economy. Combined, the two would total $600 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts -and, in the opin ion of the Congressional Budget Office, would push the country back into recession. The automatic spending cuts are part of the Budget Control Act passed last August to defuse a crisis largely manufactured by Tea Party-led House GOP conser vatives. The supercommittee failed in its mission. It became clear the lawmakers had voted for it, confi dent that the unthinkable fallback position -the automatic cuts -would never happen. As the consequences of those cuts became clear, particularly for the military, members who voted for it are fleeing from the Budget Control Act. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta called the cuts a disaster for our national defense. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chair man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called it an unacceptable risk that increased the likelihood of a conflict. The House Republicans are now arguing to scrap the automat ic cuts in defense and to make up for them by slashing the budget elsewhere. The Democrats would raise the needed funding by let ting the tax cuts expire for fami lies earning more than $250,000 a year. Neither solution is acceptable to the other side. Faced with this difficult and perhaps intractable problem, what is Congress planning to do? Take off for a five-week vacation start ing Aug. 3. The Congress-watch ing newspaper The Hill scolded members: Do your job -youre lucky to have one. A terrible event occurs, the coun try reacts, some of the response heartening, some of it dismaying, as in journal ists trotting out a leftist bias that cannot resist defam ing the Tea Party. But lets start with the good, with President Barack Obama visiting Aurora, Colo., to console families that lost loved ones in a shooting in a movie theater. Twelve were killed, dozens wounded and a nation saddened. Standing before TV cameras, Obama found something inspir ing to talk about: the way one young woman saved another by lying on the floor with her and holding fingers on a neck wound to stop the bleeding. There was more heroism at the scene. News accounts tell us of three young men who sacrificed themselves to protect girlfriends, showing how mountainous good can counteract this worlds evil. Lets remember these names: Stephanie Davies, who survived, and Alex Teves, Matt McQuinn and Jon Blunk, who did not. One name this column will not mention is that of the per son police said was responsible for the killing. The governor of Colorado, John Hickenlooper, refuses to mention it, so does Obama, and I think thats right except for reporters of straight news. To the extent feasible, you want to prevent other crazy people out there from believing they can become famous through similar atrocities. Hickenlooper also refused to join in the cry for more gun con trol. Even if the creature who sprayed a theater with bullets had no access to a firearm, he could have wreaked similar devastation with a bomb, the governor said on NBCs Meet the Press. The suspect, we have learned, had loaded his apartment with explo sive devices. Its true, too, that there are more than 220 million guns in this country and that no law remotely within constitutional bounds -or even disregarding the Second Amendment -would likely reduce that number to the point where there would no way for a miscreant to acquire one. The efficacy of many if not all gun control laws is dubious, and its more than dubious to try to keep them out of the hands of law-abid ing citizens who have used them to stop crimes and save lives. Detecting someone whose mental illness poses a threat to the rest of us is worth far more discussion, as some have sug gested, but can be extremely dif ficult. For a stretch of time lead ing up to the killings, the man arrested in this case was engaged in some mostly hidden behavior that was a clue to what might be coming, but he had also been described as shy and strangely quiet, adjectives fitting some who would never hurt anybody. The worst journalism after the shooting happened when ABC News Reporter Brian Ross said on Good Morning America that there was someone with the killers name who was listed on the Colorado page on the Colorado Tea Party site. George Stephanopoulos, the shows cohost, told him he may have found something significant when he should have said, Ross, the last thing in the world you want to do is broadcast information castigating a political movement when you have absolutely no idea whether this is the same man or not. Once a horror has occurred, it has occurred. We cannot make time reverse itself. But our reac tions help frame the future. It instills hope and can inspire more courage and more admirable behavior when we learn of good, even noble and heroic deeds amidst confusion and terror. It helps to consider what preventa tive steps might be taken to avoid similar horrors, though a rush to questionable cliches about guns avails little. Whats absolutely unacceptable is to depict a hor ror as something likely to arise from a movement involving liter ally millions of perfectly decent Americans with perfectly reputa ble ideas. That sort of thing tears us apart. A t the Veterans of Foreign Wars con vention in Reno, Nev., on Monday, President Obama heaped praise on his foreign policy record. Because were leading around the world, peo ple have a new attitude toward America, he said. Theres more confidence in our leader ship. We see it everywhere we go. This raises the question: Where exactly has he been going? Since Mr. Obama took office, the opinion of the United States generally has declined in every country surveyed by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, according to a report released in June. Despite the vaunted White House effort to reach out to Muslim-majority coun tries, U.S. favorability ratings in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Pakistan are below where they were in 2008, when George W. Bush was at the helm. Thats not to say nothing positive has happened on Mr. Obamas watch. He presided over the takedown of Osama bin Laden, and he has excelled at killing terrorists by remote control. On the other hand, the START 2 nuclear arms agree ment with Russia has proved a debacle for American nuclear strategy, and Russian President Vladimir Putin regards Mr. Obama with open contempt. All of the administrations diplomatic frameworks, whether in North Korea, South Asia, Iran, Israel or the Middle East generally, have failed. Mr. Obama has shown no leader ship regarding the continu ing chaos in the Arab world, unless it has been leading from behind. Theres a reason Mr. Obama has not been a strong leader internationally. He never set out to be one because he has never believed in the exceptional mission of the United States. When he came into office, he promised the global community he would listen rather than lead. His instinct was to apologize instead of persuade. He would rather bow to foreign leaders than stand up for America. T he NCAAs punish ment of the Penn State football pro gram, announced Monday, broke all the rules. Thats good. The Penn State program has been embroiled in scan dal since a grand jury indict ed former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky in November on numerous counts of sexually abusing young boys. Typically, the NCAA would conduct its own investiga tion, give an accused univer sity 90 days to respond and hold a hearing. In this case, Penn States trustees com missioned an independent inquiry, and former FBI chief Louis Freeh delivered a dev astating account of institution al corruption so entrenched that it held a football program as more precious than vulner able children. Those revela tions changed everything, and rightly so. As the associations president, Mark A. Emmert, announced Monday morning: We cannot look to NCAA history to determine how to handle circumstances so disturbing, shocking and dis appointing. As the individu als charged with governing college sports, we have a responsibility to act. The NCAA came up with a punishment more appropri ate than the so-called death penalty, which would have banned football for at least a year. Students who arent to blame for the scandal will still get to play football, but the team will be barred from postseason bowl games for four years. The program will be fined $60 million, equiva lent to one year of football revenue, and that money will go to victims of sex abuse and abuse prevention. The association also mandated the erasure of all Penn State foot ball victories between 1998 and 2011 a move aimed at what Mr. Emmert called the sports are king mind-set. That mind-set in which, to use Mr. Emmerts words, sports themselves can become too big to fail, too big to challenge enabled a conspiracy of silence around Mr. Sanduskys long-lasting crime spree. Although the NCAA still manages a net work of programs that too often privilege revenue over the well-being of student-ath letes, this was a long-overdue statement on the unhealthy obsession with sports that can cloud the better judgment of those involved. As if to underscore that message, Penn State removed on Sunday the statue of Joe Paterno, the late head foot ball coach who turned a blind eye to allegations against Mr. Sandusky. At more than 900 pounds and seven feet tall, the statue is a testament to the power and might of the sports are king mind-set. Lets hope that dismantling it is the first step as well in toppling the culture that pro duced it.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE THURSDAY, JULY 26, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-04246ABy BILL KACZORAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE If the winner of a Democratic or Republican primary in Florida wont face opposition in the gen-eral election, then that primary is open to all voters without regard to party registra-tion under a state constitutional amend-ment passed overwhelmingly in 1998. The idea is that everyone should get a chance to vote for or against the eventual winner. It didnt take politicians long, though, to figure out a way to get around the open primary requirement: find a sup-porter, friend or relative to run as a write-in candidate. That trick was challenged this year in court by critics who said that it effectively disenfranchises indepen-dents and members of other parties. A federal judge handed them a setback, though, on Wednesday, when he dismissed a lawsuit with the Aug. 14 pri-mary less than three weeks away, saying it should have been filed in state court. Measures aimed at closing the loophole also have failed to gain traction in the Republican-led Legislature. Token write-in candidates have proliferated, serving no role except to close party primaries and thereby deprive citi-zens of their constitutional right to vote, the suit alleged. The open primary provision was part of a broader election reform measure. The problem that backers tried to cor-rect 14 years ago was that in some coun-ties or districts where one party has an overwhelmingly majority, the minority party might not even field a candidate in the general election. That meant that only voters from the majority party were deciding their areas next legislator, state attorney or other officeholder. The backers thought they had solved the problem by opening the primary in such circumstances to all voters. But some candidates didnt want an open pri-mary, figuring that hurt their chances, so they started registering someone as an official write-in candidate a process that costs no money and arguing that meant they had a general election oppo-nent. The state Division of Elections, then under Republican Secretary of State Katherine Harris, agreed, saying that was enough to close a primary. Thats led to an explosion of write-ins and the latest court challenge. Two Miami-Dade County voters, Vincent Mazilli and Armando Lacasa, asked a federal judge to open the local Democratic primary for state attor-ney. The race pits longtime incumbent Katherine Fernandez Rundle against defense lawyer and former prosecutor Rod Vereen. No Republican is on the November ballot, but the winner will face opposi-tion from two little-known write-in can-didates so the primary is open only to Miami-Dades 525,890 Democratic vot-ers. The lawsuit claimed nearly 700,000 Republicans, independents and third-party voters are being disenfranchised. This outcome will deprive these citizens of their basic constitutional freedom, and it will undermine the clear choice of the people to grant all citi-zens a meaningful right to participate in choosing their leaders, the lawsuit said. The voters legal team includes Roberto Bobby Martinez, a former U.S. attorney and current member of the State Board of Education originally appointed by Republican then-Gov. Jeb Bush. Rundle has won broad support from Republicans in the past and figures to have a tougher time defeating Vereen, who is African-American, if the election is restricted to Democrats. Rundle has accused Vereen of being behind the write-in candidates. He denies it. Its ironic that Republicans are challenging a law that the Republicans, who have been in power for 16 years, have been unwilling to change, said state Sen. Paul Dockery. The Lakeland Republican has sponsored bipartisan legislation to eliminate the write-in loophole but with-out success. The open primary amendment was placed on the 1998 ballot by the Florida Constitution Revision Commission and voters approved it with a 64 percent majority. Rundle was a member of the commission and voted against the pro-posal that narrowly passed, 15-14. Mazzilli, an independent, and Lacasa, a Republican, wanted U.S. District Judge William Zloch, to open the primary to all Miami-Dade voters or put both Democrats on the general election ballot with the usual blank space for write-in votes. The judge, though, ruled he lacked jurisdiction because its a state issue. The lawsuit noted that a write-in candidate has never won an election in Florida most get a handful of votes and argues that its absurd to think the com-mission and voters would have wanted the amendment to be so easily circum-vented. Why would they have bothered? the plaintiffs lawyers wrote. And it is equally absurd to think that any voter viewing a ballot with a candidate name and a blank space would think that candidate opposed. They also contended the policy violates the plaintiffs right to vote under the U.S. Constitution. Lawyers for Secretary of State Ken Detzner, an appointee of Republican Gov. Rick Scott, and Miami-Dade Supervisor of Elections Penelope Townsley dis-puted that constitutional argument and contended write-in candidates must be considered opposition because state law predating the amendment says they are duly-qualified. Write-ins must register with the division to become qualified but they dont have to pay filing fees or submit petitions as regular candidates must. Only votes for qualified candidates are counted. The line provided for duly-qualified write-in candidates is provided for the purpose of writing in a candidates name, not writing in the name of Santa Claus or Mickey Mouse, the states lawyers wrote in their brief. The state also noted one of the write-in candidates in the state attorneys race is a registered Republican and the other a Democrat. The brief contended that open-ing the primary would be contrary to the public interest because it would disrupt the orderly conduct of an election thats already begun as absentee ballots have been mailed. Former Florida Supreme Court Justice Gerald Kogan, who chaired the committee of the revision commission that drafted the amendment, said in 2000 that he couldnt recall the write-in issue even being discussed. This was not a big deal at that time, Kogan said then. Since the states policy went into effect, 131 general election races have included write-in candidates statewide from 2000 through 2010, according to the lawsuit. Thats more than triple the number com-pared to the prior 22 years in about half the time. In Miami-Dade, races that had write-in candidates jumped from three to 39. Clay Roberts, who issued the advisory opinion when he was the divisions direc-tor in 2000, then told The Associated Press that he was a little taken aback when a write-in candidate acknowledged to him that she was running only to block an open primary. That was shameful, Roberts said at the time, but the division has stuck with its policy. The year before the opinion was issued the Florida Senate passed a bill that spe-cifically said write-ins were not to be con-sidered opposition. The House, though, passed a version saying just the opposite. They were never reconciled and no law was passed. Subsequently, several proposed constitutional amendments were filed in the House and Senate to clarify that write-ins would not count as opposition, but none ever made it to a floor vote. The last was filed in 2008 by Dockery, who has often bucked her own party leaders. She said they made no bones about it that they like the write-in loop-hole.ASSOCIATED PRESSRepublican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts G ov.

MATTHEW PERRONE AP Health Writer WASHINGTON People are inventing so many new ways to get high that lawmakers cant seem to keep up. Over the past two years, the U.S. has seen a surge in the use of synthetic drugs made of legal chem icals that mimic the dan gerous effects of cocaine, amphetamines and other illegal stimulants. The drugs are often sold at small, indepen dent stores in misleading packaging that suggests common household items like bath salts, incense and plant food. But the substances inside are pow erful, mind-altering drugs that have been linked to bizarre and violent behav ior across the country. Law enforcement officials refer to the drugs collectively as bath salts, though they have nothing in common with the fragrant toiletries used to moisturize skin. President Barack Obama signed a bill into law earlier this month that bans the sale, production and possession of more than two dozen of the most common bath salt drugs. But health professionals say lawmakers cannot keep pace with bath salt producers, who constantly adjust their chemical formulations to come up with new synthetic drugs that arent covered by new laws. Experts who have studied the problem estimate there are more than 100 different bath salt chemicals in circulation. The moment you start to regulate one of them, theyll come out with a variant that sometimes is even more potent, said Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. There are no back alleys or crack houses in Americas latest drug epidemic. The problem involves potent substances that amateur chemists make, package and sell in stores under brands like Ivory Wave, Vanilla Sky and Bliss for as little as $15. Emergencies related to the drugs have surged: The American Association of Poison Control Centers received more than 6,100 calls about bath salt drugs in 2011 up from just 304 the year before and more than 1,700 calls in the first half of 2012. The problem for law makers is that its difficult to crack down on the drugs. U.S. laws prohibit the sale or possession of all substances that mimic illegal drugs, but only if federal prosecutors can show that they are intend ed for human use. People who make bath salts and similar drugs work around this by printing not for human consumption on virtually every packet. Barbara Carreno, a spokeswoman for the Drug Enforcement Agency, said the intended use for bath salts is clear. Everyone knows these are drugs to get high, including the sellers, she said. Many states have banned some of the most common bath salts, which are typically sold by small businesses like conve nience stores, tobacco shops and adult book stores. For instance, West Virginia legislators banned the bath salt drug MDPV last year, making it a misdemeanor to sell, buy or possess the synthetic drug. Conviction means up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. Stephanie Mitchell, assistant manager of The Den, a tobacco and paraphernalia shop in Morgantown, W.Va., said the store hasnt sold bath salts in the six months that shes worked there. But strung-out users still come in and ask for them. Theyre pretty ... cracked out, I guess would be a good word, said Mitchell, 21, a student at West Virginia University. Theyre just kind of not all there. Theyre kind of sketchy people. Mitchell says she wouldnt sell bath salts even if she had them, because its horrible, and I could get in trouble for it. Despite the bans, bath salts producers are con stantly tweaking their recipes to come up with new drugs that arent cov ered by local laws. In fact, Mark Ryan, director of the Louisiana Poison Center, says there are so many different drugs out there that its almost impossible to know what people have ingested, or how long the effects will last. Cocaine is cocaine and meth is meth. We know what these things do, he said. But with these new drugs, every time the chemist alters the chemi cal structure, all bets are off. THE SPREAD The most common bath salt drugs, like MDPV and mephedrone, were first developed in pharmaceuti cal research laboratories, though they were never approved for medical use. During the last decade they became popular as party drugs at European raves and dance clubs. As law enforcement began cracking down on the problem there, the drugs spread across the Atlantic Ocean. Poison control centers in the U.S. began tracking use of the drugs in 2010. The majority of the early reports of drug use were clustered in Southern states like Louisiana, Tennessee and Kentucky. But the problem soon spread across the country. The financial lure for small-time drugmakers is enticing. The drugs can be cheaply imported from China or India, and then easily packaged under local brands. For example, bath salts sold in Louisiana carry regional names like Hurricane Charlie or Bayou. The widespread avail ability of the drugs in stores is equally alluring for drug users: they can get a cheap high similar to that of illegal drugs by walking to a corner store. The most dangerous synthetic drugs are stimu lants that affect levels of both dopamine and serotonin, brain chemi cals that affect mood and perception. Users, who typically smoke or snort the powder-based drugs, may experience a surge in energy, fever and delu sions of invincibility. Use of these drugs has spread across the country with reports stretching from Maine to California. There are no official fed eral estimates on deaths connected with the drugs, many of which do not show up on typical drug tests. But police reports have implicated the drugs in several cases. Packets of Lady Bubbles bath salts, for instance, were found on Sgt. David Franklyn Stewart last April after the solider shot and killed his wife and himself during a car chase with law enforce ment near Olympia, Wash. The chase began when Stewart sped past a police patrol car at 6 a.m. The police trooper pursued for 10 miles and reported see ing the driver raise a hand to his head, then heard a shot and saw the driver slump over. The next day police found the couples 5-year-old son dead in their home; he had been suffo cated with a plastic bag at least 24 hours earlier. Another death involv ing bath salts played out in Covington, La. Police reported that Dickie Sanders, 21, shot himself in the head Nov. 11, 2010 while his parents were asleep. His father, Dr. Richard Sanders, said his son had snorted Cloud 9 bath salts and endured three days of intermit tent delirium, at one point attempting to cut his own throat. As he continued to have visions, his physician father tried to calm him. But the elder Sanders said that as he slept, his son went into another room and shot himself. WHATS AHEAD Hospital emergency rooms, doctors and law enforcement agencies across the country have struggled to control bath salt drug users who often are feverish and para noid that they are being attacked. Doctors say users often turn up naked because bath salts raise their body temperature so much that they strip off their clothing. Cookeville Regional Medical Center in Tennessee has treated 160 people suspected of taking bath salts since 2010. Dr. Sullivan Smith, who works there, said people on the drugs become combative, and it can take four or five health professionals to subdue them. In some cases, he said, doctors have to use prescription sedatives that are typically reserved for surgery. Smith recalls one man who had been running for more than 24 hours because he believed the devil was chasing him with an ax. By the time police brought him to the hos pital, he was dehydrated and covered in blood from running through thorny underbrush. Were seeing extreme agitation, hallucinations that are very vivid, para noia and some really violent behavior, so its a real crisis for us, Smith said. We sedate the living daylights out of them. And were talking doses on the order of 10 or 20 times what you would give for a painful procedure. To control the spread of the problem, the Drug Enforcement Agency issued a temporary ban in October on three of the most common drugs mephedrone, methy lone and MDPV. That ban became permanent under the bill signed by Obama on July 10. Under the law, any one convicted of selling, making or possessing 28 synthetic drugs, including bath salts, will face penal ties similar to those for dealing traditional drugs like cocaine and heroin. Those on the front lines say the legislation is a good start. But they dont expect new laws to dra matically curb use of bath salts in the near term. The problem is these drugs are changing and Im sure theyre going to find some that are a little bit different chemically so they dont fall under the law, said Dr. Smith, the Tennessee doctor. Is it adequate to name five or 10 or even 20? The answer is no, theyre changing too fast.

SAMANTHA GROSS Associated Press NEW YORK Medical professionals who favor a proposed ban on large-sized sugary drinks likened soda companies to Big Tobacco at a public hearing Tuesday, saying the plan would protect the public, while opponents accused the city of playing Big Brother and wondered what tasty but unhealthy foods might be targeted next. New York Citys health board heard hours of tes timony on a proposed rule that would limit soft-drink cup and bottle sizes at food service establishments to no larger than 16 ounces. Medical experts spared no rhetoric in hailing Mayor Michael Bloombergs proposal as a way to protect the public from a soft-drink industry they said pushes carbon ated calories on children and employs the same well-financed lobbying tac tics as Big Tobacco. One doctor said before the hearing that the calorie-packed beverages increase the risk of diabe tes, and are responsible for a big share of the massive suffering and premature death linked to obesity. Soda in large amounts is metabolically toxic, said Walter Willett, a professor of epidemiology and nutri tion at Harvard School of Public Health. Its obvious that this is the right thing to do. A 20-ounce bottle of Coca-Cola has roughly the same calorie count as a McDonalds hamburger, but Kelly Brownell, a psychol ogy, epidemiology and public health professor at Yale University, said it is easier to over-drink than over-eat. You dont feel as full when you consume calo ries in liquids, he said. These beverages are the single greatest source of added sugar in the American diet. Critics ridiculed the idea that city officials should regulate portion sizes. City Councilman Daniel Halloran III called the pro posal a feel-good placebo that would hurt profit mar gins at small businesses while failing to improve anyones health. He questioned whether a limit on the size of steak was around the corner. Chris Gindlesperger, a spokesman for the American Beverage Association, scoffed at the notion that soda makers were similar to tobacco companies. Theres no comparison, he said. Cigarettes can kill you. ... Soft drinks are a treat to be enjoyed in mod eration they can play a role in a healthy, balanced and active lifestyle. Another critical council man, Oliver Koppell, called the ban a clear overreach ing of government into peoples everyday lives. This infringement on the rights of New Yorkers leads us to ask what will be banned next? Joy Dubost, a nutritionist who works for the National Restaurant Association, said the proposal wasnt backed up by scientific evidence. Its not reasonable to blame or cite one product, she said, adding that the proposal produces a false sense of accomplishment in the fight against obesity. Several critics questioned why the city was making a proposal on sugary drinks a priority when some city schoolchildren have no physi cal education classes. The proposal requires only the approval of the Board of Health appointed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg to take effect. But opponents could still sue to block the ban, or they could convince legislators to step in and block the proposal. The board is scheduled to vote on the measure Sept. 13. Since Bloomberg pro posed the ban in May, opponents including mem bers of the restaurant and soft-drink industries as well as libertarians have accused him of attempting to institute a nanny state with far-reaching govern ment controls that infringe on individual choice. City officials, meanwhile, argue they are trying to save lives in the face of an epi demic that is killing 5,800 New Yorkers and costing $4 billion each year. The portion size restric tions would only apply to food-service businesses regulated by the Health Department, including res taurants, food carts, sports arenas, delis and movie theaters. Grocery stores, drug stores and some convenience stores are regulated by the state and would be unaffected. Nutritionist Lisa R. Young speaks July 24 during a New York City Board of Health public hearing on the proposal to limit the size of sugary drinks in New York.

By STEVEN WINEAssociated PressDAVIE When Don Shula reminisces about Dan Marinos rookie year, the Pro Football Hall of Fame coach says he needed to see only a few throws on the Miami Dolphins practice field to realize they had a franchise quarterback. Some 29 years later, with the Dolphins desperate for a long-term solution at the position, they have yet to declare that Ryan Tannehill cant miss. The rookie from Texas A&M is winning praise, but it may be awhile before he gets a chance to win games. Comparisons with Marino are unfair but inevitable, because Tannehill is the first QB since No. 13 to be drafted in the first round by Miami. Marino won the starting job in the sixth game of his rookie year in 1983 and went on to become the most prolific passer in NFL history. Now, with the Dolphins about to open training camp, the quarterback situation is unsettled which has been the case much of the time since Marino retired 12 years ago. Holdover Matt Moore and newcomer David Garrard will compete with Tannehill during the exhibi-tion season for the starting job, and one of the veterans is likely to begin the season No. 1. However, new coach Joe Philbin stressed that nothing was decided during spring drills, and the starter will be determined by what happens in Rookie Tannehill a long shot in Dolphins QB race ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this June 11 file photo, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill prepares to make a handoff during an NFL football practice, in Davie. Comparisons with Dan Marino are unfair but inevitable, because Tannehill is the first QB since No. 13 to be drafted in the first round by Miami. PHINS continued on 2B By FRED GOODALLAssociated PressTAMPA A rebuilding project that already transformed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers into one of the NFLs youngest teams is about to take on an even more youthful look. First-year coach Greg Schiano welcomed his initial rookie class to training camp a week ahead of veterans, promising each of the prospects a chance to prove they can help make a difference on a club that lost the final 10 games of last season en route to a 4-12 record. I dont have any favorites, Schiano said before cutting him-self short to interject that thats not necessarily true. Fourth-year pro Josh Freeman is the teams No. 1 quarterback, and theres not likely to be any real competition to retain his job. Of course there are others who, barring injury, are locks to be starters, too. But the point Schiano wanted to make is that hes open to allowing newcomers a chance to contribute in key roles. I think theres great opportunity, maybe more than any other year. Not because of who theyre competing with, but because those veterans dont have as much of a head start in this scheme, Schiano said. They have a head start in being veteran players, but they dont have a head start in this specif-ic scheme, the former Rutgers coach added. So our rookies, Ive told them these are great ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this June 5 file photo, Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Mark Barron participates in a drill during an NFL training session in Tampa.

R The Real L Word (N)Polyamory: MarriedThe Real L Word PHINS: Have new look in 2012 Continued From Page 1BAugust. We havent been in pads yet, and we are still learn-ing, he said. Well have better information with pads and games. Its going to be fun. Teammates rave about Tannehills arm strength, but poor decisions and interceptions were a prob-lem in offseason practices. Philbin has installed the West Coast offense, and while the playbook is simi-lar to what Tannehill ran at Texas A&M, he started only 19 games at quarter-back after switching from receiver. Given his relative lack of experience, the Dolphins figure Tannehill will need time adjusting to the speed of the NFL and the multi-tude of defense hell face. There are 16 weeks, and you are going to get 16 looks at defenses with variations, and some that are just completely differ-ent, Garrard said. Thats a lot to put on a rookie quarterback. Some guys can do it, and some guys have a tough time with it. Tannehill took by the far the fewest first-team snaps during the Dolphins spring workouts, a sign hes lag-ging on the depth chart. Hes like any other rookie, Philbin said. Theres a system in place sche-matically that we want to implement, and obviously were still in the mode of learning more about our players, what they can and cant do well. Its not a mat-ter of plopping the Texas A&M playbook down on the table. There remains a chance Tannehill will play this sea-son, but hell need to come from behind in training camp to win the starting job for the season opener Sept. 9. Otherwise the nod will go to Moore or Garrard. It has been close, Philbin said regarding the two veterans. The cream will rise to the top, Garrard said, and the best guy will play. The 34-year-old Garrard, a starter for Jacksonville in 2005-10, didnt play last season. He was released five days before the opener by the Jaguars, underwent back surgery in October and considered retirement. Garrard signed with the Dolphins in March after their failed courtships with Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn, and he expects the team to look to him for leadership. Just being the older guy on the whole team gives me a great advantage with all of the guys, because everybody is looking for that nugget to be better, he said. Everyone is looking for knowledge to improve their game. Moore exceeded expectations last year, when he became the 16th start-ing quarterback for the Dolphins since Marino retired. Over the final nine games his QB rating ranked sixth in the league, and he considers his holdover sta-tus an advantage. Thats a huge deal, especially for a quarter-back, coming in and just really having the relation-ship with those guys, but also just being here as a Dolphin, Moore said. The experience I got last year is so valuable to have now during this camp. Its a good thing to have in my back pocket. Whoever wins the QB job will lead a Dolphins offense with a different look. They changed diva receivers, trading Brandon Marshall and signing 34-year-old Chad Ochocinco, who legally changed his name back to Chad Johnson. Reggie Bush is back after rushing for a career-high 1,086 yards in his first year with Miami, and he gushes about his role in the West Coast attack. This offense is perfect for guys like me, because it gives us a chance to use our speed and kind of wear down the defense and have them chase us around all day, Bush said. Its more of an attack offense. We dont even have a huddle. Were constantly attack-ing and constantly fast-paced, so I think that this year is going to be excit-ing, especially from a fan standpoint. The Dolphins went 6-10 last year and have endured three consecutive losing seasons, so fans are in the market for more excite-ment. An impressive train-ing camp by Miamis rook-ie quarterback might do the trick. ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this June 19 file photo, Miami Dolphins player Chad O chocinco talks to the media after NFL practice in Davie. Chad Ochocinco is officially no more. The Dolphins wide receiver has changed his name back to the original Chad Johnson. Jo hnson legally changed his name Monday in an appearance at the Broward County Courthous e.
DEAR ABBY: I am planning a trip to Thailand next year and would like to find a traveling partner. I dont care whether the person is male or female. My plan is to visit the country and rent a cabin for a month. My interest is solely to share expenses and have a platon-ic relationship with my trav-elmate because going alone is very expensive. Thanks for whatever input you can give me. -TRAVELER FROM KANSAS CITY DEAR TRAVELER: Youre welcome. My input is to urge you to rethink this. I do NOT recommend that you go to a foreign country and rent a cabin in the middle of nowhere with someone you dont know because it could be danger-ous. What if there is a medi-cal emergency or your com-panion has misrepresented himor herself? Traveling, even with someone you DO know, can present problems unless you have a high degree of compatibility and similar habits. Low-budget tours are available, and I urge you to research them. DEAR ABBY: A few weeks ago my husband and I were having an argu-ment. He stormed out of the house and was killed in a wreck while talking to his brother on his cellphone. His family blames me for arguing with him. While I feel sad that the last thing we did was argue, I feel his brother should shoulder some of the blame because he was on the cellphone with him, which is illegal in our state. Luckily, no one else was hurt in the crash, but I am very hurt that Johns family is so angry at me. Please remind folks not to drive while on a cellphone. -IDAHO WIDOW DEAR WIDOW: Please accept my sympathy for the tragic loss of your husband. It is important you under-stand that your former in-laws are angry at the fact that he is dead, and are looking for someone other than him to blame for their pain. If your brother-in-law knew John was on his cell-phone while driving, then Im sure he carries some guilt about it. But the fault lies with your husband, rest his angry soul. P.S. If your letter serves as a reminder to readers not to use a cellphone -or text -while driving, his death will not have been in vain. DEAR ABBY: I am dating a recently divorced man who was married to a very controlling woman for 31 years. I love him very much and see myself with him in the future. However, at the age of 53, he is interested in pursuing a singing career. I dated a musician for 16 years and I do not want a relationship with another one. Im pretending to be supportive because I dont want to be another woman telling him what to do or stifling his dreams. Inside I am dreading it. On the other hand, I cant imagine my life without him. Should I continue to pretend to support him and hope he fails, or let him know that I dont want to be with a musician? -OUT OF TUNE IN DAYTON, OHIO DEAR OUT OF TUNE: It is in neither of your best interests for you to continue lying to him because the truth will come to light eventually. He is not the person you dated for 16 years, so let him pursue his dream. The odds of a 53-year-old man becoming an overnight national sensation are long, but after 31 years of misery with his ex, please dont begrudge him. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): You wont need to be aggressive to get your way. Doing your part to make things happen is all thats required. The interest you show in someone will be reciprocated. Network, socialize and enjoy people who share your humor and interests. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Dont allow situations to fester or emotional matters to be drawn out. Take care of a problem before it has the chance to develop into a full-fledged disagreement. Focus on creative solutions that will ease stress for everyone involved. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Consider the differ-ence between the way you do things and the way oth-ers approach similar situ-ations. A change of plans will help you get back on track and renew some of the interest someone used to have in you. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will attract a lot of attention. Dont give anyone reason to point out your shortcomings or dam-age your reputation. Focus on creative projects that allow you to show off. An older or younger person will add to your responsi-bilities. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Spread your talent around. Offer help, suggestions and experience, but dont argue with someone you are connected to personal-ly or emotionally. Creative changes at home or in the way you handle money must be considered care-fully. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dont allow someone from your past to ruin your day. Focus on the here and now and whats ahead in the future. Living in the past will only hold you back. Someone quite dif-ferent from you will catch your interest. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Consider all your interests and the places you want visit, and you will come up with an educa-tional and fun plan that will lead to newfound friends and potential partnerships. Live, love and laugh, and enjoy whatever comes your way. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Emotions will surface. Finding out where you stand may not be what you want to hear initially, but in the end you will discover you are the beneficiary of something much bigger and better. Share ideas with someone you respect. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Check out all your options, but go for the one that promises to put the most cash in your hands. A partnership that offers equality and strength will help you push your way to the top, per-sonally and professionally. Love is in the stars. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Impulse is the enemy. Listen carefully to what others say, and keep close tabs on the people you are in partnership with both personally and professionally. Take an unexpected approach to what you do and you will confuse your competition. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Emotional mat-ters will lead to confusion. If something doesnt seem right, ask questions until you get an answer. A rela-tionship will become better once youve established how to allocate responsi-bilities. Strive for equality. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Handle your personal paperwork and finances in an unorthodox manner to end up with additional funds. An opportunity to pick up secret informa-tion will help you make a decision that can help you advance. Dont mix business with pleasure. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Safety Mark Barron and running back Doug Martin are first-round draft picks who Schianos counting on to step right into the lineup. The Bucs yielded a league-high and franchiseworst 494 points in 2011, while also ranking last in rushing defense, sacks and turnover margin. Offensively, they were 27th in scoring and 30th in rush ing, while also regressing in the passing game. A year after throwing for 25 touchdowns and six inter ceptions to lead Tampa Bay to a surprising 10-6 record, Freeman took a step back with 16 TD passes and 22 interceptions some of which could be attributed to the 24-year-old making poor decisions in the pocket. Schiano hired Mike Sullivan, who worked with Eli Manning with the New York Giants, as his offen sive coordinator. The coach also hopes a more produc tive running game will help Freeman, who threw for 7,043 yards over the past two seasons, get back on track. Martin and third-year pro LeGarrette Blount, a 1,000yard rusher as a rookie, are projected to share the workload at running back. The 247-pound Blount led the Bucs with 781 yards in 2011, but also had a prob lem with fumbles. Freeman was the teams secondleading rusher 238 yards. We need to get LeGarrette to run consis tently the way hes capable ... and we need him to have better ball security. We need our whole football team to have better ball security, Schiano said. Were one of the sloppier teams with the football that Ive ever seen, so were going to have to get that remedied from Day 1. Thatll take a lot because its a bad habit. Barron was the sev enth overall pick in the draft out of Alabama. The Bucs selected the versatile 223-pound Martin, a pro ductive runner and effective receiver out of the backfield for Boise State, at No. 31 overall. Although Martin said hes not taking anything for granted, he understands he will have an opportunity to earn significant playing time as a rookie. Preseason all-ACC team named Associated Press GREENSBORO, N.C. Florida State, North Carolina and defending league champion Clemson each placed four players on the preseason all-Atlantic Coast Conference team. The ACC announced the team Wednesday following a vote of media members. The Tigers placed three key skill position play ers on the team: receiver Sammy Watkins, quarter back Tajh Boyd and run ning back Andre Ellington. They were joined by center Dalton Freeman. The Tar Heels Giovani Bernard was the other running back and he was joined by linebacker Kevin Reddick, offensive guard Jonathan Cooper and offen sive tackle James Hurst. Representing the Seminoles were defen sive end Brandon Jacobs, safety Lamarcus Joyner, kicker Dustin Hopkins and returner Greg Reid.
