EDAB member Terry Dicks agreed, telling CMS owner Chris Samson that he is living the American Dream. “Understand that you being first, we are in this with you in a lot of ways,” Dicks told Samson. “You are helping us plow new ground, we are helping you.” The recommendation outlines a loan for the business awarded at zero percent interest and amortized over a 10-year period.

The ABC newswoman and TV personality joined Buffett on stage for several songs Tuesday during a concert in Noblesville, Ind., about 20 miles north east of Indianapolis. Couric told WRTV-TV in Indianapolis that she thought it would be a fun, visual little fling.

Couric has other plans. Shell launch a new day time talk show titled Katie on Sept. 10. Monroe questions continue to linger LOS ANGELES A half century has not dimmed skeptics suspi cions about the death of Marilyn Monroe at age 36, but the intervening decades have seen tech nological leaps that could alter the investigation were it to occur today. DNA, more sophisticat ed electronic record-keep ing, drug databases and other advances would give investigators more infor mation than they were able to glean after Monroes Aug. 5, 1962, death 50 years ago this Sunday. Whether any of the tools would lead to a dif ferent conclusion that Monroes death from acute barbiturate poison ing was a probable suicide remains a historical What If? The good news is were very advanced from 50 years ago, said Max Houck, a forensic consul tant and co-author of The Science of Crime Scenes. The bad news is, were still trying to put it in con text, he said. Monroes death stunned the world and quickly ignited speculation that she died from a more nefarious plot than the official cause of death. The theories stem from the 35minute gap between when Monroe was declared dead by her physician and when police were dispatched, incomplete phone records, and toxicology tests on digestive organs that were never done.

Mystery sealed in Greer case ORLANDO The identity of a person who wants to keep some docu ments from being released in the criminal trial of a former Republican Party of Florida chair will be kept under wraps for a bit longer. Documents the mys tery person doesnt want released will be sealed for seven days while the persons attorney decides whether to appeal, Circuit Judge Marc Lubet ruled Wednesday. The judge last week denied the persons request to stop the documents from being released. The mystery person said they were defamatory. The Associated Press filed a motion opposing efforts to seal the docu ments. Some of the most promi nent Florida Republicans are named as witnesses for Jim Greers trial on charges that he funneled GOP money to his company. Greer is pleading not guilty. The judge said only Greers attorney and an attorney for the mystery person will be able to review the documents. Debby hurt Pinellas beaches ST. PETERSBURG University of South Florida researchers have found that Tropical Storm Debby swept an estimated 630,900 cubic yards of sand off three barrier islands in Pinellas County in June. County officials say that restoring the beaches to their previous state could cost more than $25 million. Officials will want to fix the beaches because they draw tourists and money to the area. The findings of the USF research were released Wednesday. The June storms three days of strong southerly wind eroded beaches that were already narrow. The Tampa Bay Times reports at Pass-A-Grille beach, the sand dune line retreated by nearly 12 feet and the entire area lost about 36,500 cubic yards of sand. Sunset beach on Treasure Island lost 43,400 cubic yards. Officer shot, suspect killed MIAMI Miami-Dade police are investigating a shootout that left a detec tive critically wounded and a suspect dead. Residents in the area told The Miami Herald on Tuesday that shots broke out as officers apparently sought to bust a suspected marijuana grow house, but police werent releasing details. A police spokesman says the officer was alert and conscious when he arrived at a Miami trauma center. Police spokesman Detective Roy Rutland said the detective was shot multiple times in the abdo men. He was in critical but stable condition Tuesday night after surgery at the hospital. The newspaper reported that the man who fired at officers was killed while a second suspect was wounded and in custody. Police remained at the scene Tuesday evening, and traffic was blocked off in the neighborhood. Sheriffs pick 1st female leader TALLAHASSEE The Florida Sheriffs Association has elected its first female president, Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton. The association on Tuesday also named Miami-Dade County detec tive Oscar Plasencia as its deputy of the year. Plascenia killed a mur der suspect who had just fatally shot two of his partners in January 2011 as they tried to serve an arrest warrant.

manent jobs with salaries at 182 percent in excess of current per capita income rates. EDAB attorney Joel Foreman said the recom mendation will include a suggestion to require that the jobs created by the company must be main tained until the money is repaid to the county. This is, I would sug gest, precisely the kind of stuff that ordinance 20121 calls for, Foreman said. And it ends up being a net zero, the only thing the county gets out of this is gains, assuming the agreement is com plied with. Samson said CMS will exceed the expectations set by the board. We set the bar very, very high, Samson said. Yall are choosing a good guinea pig. The EDABs recom mendation will go to the county commission for discussion before the loan is granted. If the loan is approved by the county commission, the money will be taken from the economic development budget, currently around $600,000. The EDAB also adopt ed a set of qualifications for businesses interested in receiving incentives under the local incentive ordinance. The qualifications say that the business must show an economic impact with a minimum capital investment of $500,000 and a minimum of 10 per manent jobs. Wages for jobs must exceed 115 per cent of current per capita income. The business must agree to benchmarks and clawbacks. The business also must be perceived to be a desirable business or industry by the EDAB. This is just a bit of guid ance for me so that I am not arbitrarily making decisions without some structure, Economic Development director Jesse Quillen said. Quillen said the crite ria are flexible and can be changed in the future. I think its a great place to start, EDAB member Glenn Owens said.

The District, in coor dination with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Suwannee River Partnership, will use the funding to work with area farmers to prevent more than 1 million pounds of nitrogen annually from entering the river and springs and save 670 million gallons per year of water use. With the help of DEP and DACS we are pleased to be able to provide these retro fits to growers in the Santa Fe River Basin to achieve water quality and water conser vation benefits, said District Executive Director Ann Shortelle. The funds will be used to retrofit exist ing irrigation systems to more efficiently distribute water and incorporate the prac tice of fertigation. Such retrofits will equip irrigation systems to deliver a more uni form and efficient applica tion of water and fertilizer, and they will reduce water use and the potential for nutrients to leach into the water table. Not only will these efforts reduce nitrogen loading to the Santa Fe River, they will benefit farmers by reduc ing energy and fertilizer costs, Shortelle said.In February, DEP culminated more than two years of work with local govern ments and environmental and agricultural stakeholders to develop and adopt a Basin Management Action Plan, a five-year blue print for reducing nutrients in the Santa Fe River. During the plan development, restoration partners identified nutrient and irrigation management as the two key categories of agricultural practices that need to be addressed in order to achieve restoration. The District is contributing an addition al 20 percent ($180,000) in in-kind services to the retrofit program.

Vann Marc Vann reappointed to Hospital Authority Airport. Several new employees were hired from the Ocala area and plan to relo cate their families, Stroud said. However, the company hired most ly from the Lake City area, Stroud said. Factory-built construction allows the company to offer customizable buildings on a shorter timeline than traditional building methods, accord ing to a press release. We are deeply invested in the Southeast and especially proud of our Lake City factory, said Champion Home Builders CEO Jack Lawless in a statement. Floridas building industry was amongst the hardest hit during our nations economic crisis, and we have worked very hard to do our part in bringing the industry back. Our Lake City factory is indus try leading, and has recently hosted representatives from South American and Europe to promote Floridas building industry and its capability to ship products worldwide from the Port of Jacksonville.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Romneyneeds tobe morespecific Q The Washington Post Q The Washington Times OPINION Thursday, August 2, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AOPINION ANOTHER VIEW D ictators take themselves very seri-ously and thus are acutely conscious that one of the most potent weapons against them is ridicule. How else to explain the judicial overkill in Moscow against three young -all in their 20s -members of a female punk band who entered the cathedral that is the headquarters of the Russian church and sang about 30 seconds of a song whose salient lyric is “Our Lady, chase Putin out” before they themselves were chased away? This is the kind of juvenile prank that the principal of any American high school could have dealt with in about half an hour. But this is Vladimir Putin’s Russia. The three have been in jail since February and only went on trial this week. The women are charged with “hooligan-ism,” an all-purpose charge used by Russian police when they want to arrest someone but can’t find an actual crime to charge them with. For this vague offense, they face seven years in jail. In the Kremlin’s efforts to portray the young women’s prank as a grave crime, it hasn’t helped that the three are lively and attractive, that two of them have young children and that they have considerable sup-port from the Russian arts community. Putin is concerned about his own image and how Russia is per-ceived in the world, but both are taking quite a beating at the hands of the punk band. I t’s time for us to lead our leaders. We have just three weeks to take control of our destiny and our democracy. Just three weeks before the Republicans and then the Democrats drape themselves in red, white and blue at their presi-dential conventions, flaunting their political finery that, upon closer inspection, will be revealed as just a 21st-century tailoring of the emperor’s new clothes. Egad, send the children from the room! We’ll see our leaders are starkers (!), their naked electoral aspira-tions exposed for all to see. But even then, will we really understand what our leaders are doing to us? Will we realize that despite all their rhetorical red-white-and-bluing, they are unpatriotically dissing us by hid-ing until after Election Day what they plan to do about a $1 trillion fiscal time bomb they rigged to explode in our faces after we’ve voted? Will we understand we waited too long to exert our only elec-toral leverage? To be specific: A year ago, Republicans and Democrats rigged a budget-slashing bomb to automatically cut, or sequester, $1 trillion -including $500 billion in new defense cuts that all sides agree will be a national security disaster and will increase U.S. unemployment. Leaders of both parties made the sequester unacceptably dra-conian to impel themselves to do what’s right: enact a debt-reduc-tion solution well before the Jan. 2 deadline. Avoid repeating the 2011 last-second, edge-of-the-cliff calamity that shattered global confidence that U.S. leaders would keep fiscal promises. It was right about here in this column that I’d planned to again blast the news media for fail-ing to fully tell voters what the sequester will do to them. But last Saturday afternoon, CNN’s Ali Velshi and Christine Romans did just that. They gave viewers the year’s finest, fairest, clear-est non-political look at the real consequences of our blind rush toward the Jan. 2 “fiscal cliff.” (Perhaps because it was sub-stantive, not the tabloid stuff TV execs think you want, CNN aired this prime-time-worthy journal-ism in Saturday’s 1 p.m. ET slot that attracts very few eyeballs. But at least it aired.) Anchor Velshi began by laying out the very theme I’d drafted to spring on you -that politicians aren’t telling us the truth about the economy. “America could be headed to another recession and there may not be much that can you do to protect yourself,” he said. “There is one thing you can do: Understand how Congress is dangling you over a fiscal cliff.” If Congress fails to act and the sequester kicks in Jan. 2, CNN reported, middle-class Americans face dire consequences: Income taxes will rise when Bush-era tax cuts expire. Retirees living off stock dividends could see their taxes double. More job cuts will occur. “The cuts will lead to immediate reductions in procurement spending in the private sector, which could result in 2 million direct job losses in fiscal year 2012 and 2013,” Romans report-ed. She said experts estimate 500,000 job cuts in professional and business services; 350,000 in manufacturing; 300,000 in the federal workforce; and significant job cuts for contractors, suppliers and vendors doing business with federal agencies. Indeed, those cuts already have begun. Fearing the seques-ter, federal agencies and contrac-tors have already halted planned hiring until they know the jobs will be needed. All of that is why all Americans need to learn the truth and take control of their destiny -before it is too late. But President Barack Obama has failed to boldly seize this leadership moment by educat-ing America and demanding that Congress stay in session and not party conventionally until it has a far-reaching plan to shrink deficits. Both parties fear cut-ting popular programs, raising revenue and reforming taxes and entitlements before Election Day. Then, as Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s rush by, do you really think a lame-duck Congress will give us anything other than more political quackery? Another lame, decision-delaying gimmick? “It’s like congressional malpractice,” said CNN’s Romans. Exactly. That’s why we have just three weeks to act. Three weeks in which we must come together as patriots -the Tea Party people, the Occupy Wall Street people, uncommitted middle-class cul-de-sac people -and lead our leaders. Can our leaders really accomplish anything in just three weeks? Yes -when it’s in their mutually self-preserving politi-cal interest, as we saw Tuesday. Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker John Boehner quickly and quietly agreed to a continuing resolu-tion preventing a government shutdown when the fiscal year ends Sept. 30. They knew fed-up Americans would be yelling, “Throw all the bums out!” in the campaign’s last month. Now we must demand that our leaders act to save us from the fiscal time bomb. And we must demand they reveal their solu-tions now, before we give them democracy’s most precious gift: our votes. D espite recent tough talk coming from the White House regarding Iran, the Obama administration and the mullahs agree on one thing: Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel. On Monday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Mitt Romney’s statement that Jerusalem is the Jewish state’s capital was “a different position than this administration holds. It’s the view of this administra-tion that the capital should be determined in final status negotiations between parties.” Though President Obama now fundamentally disagrees with Mr. Romney on the Jerusalem question, this was not always the case. When running for president in 2008, Mr. Obama declared, “Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided.” He quickly wimped out on that bold stand. Now the Obama administra-tion will barely acknowledge Jerusalem exists and only uses the word “capital” in the context of dividing the city to give half to the Palestinians. Sometime between the campaign trail and the Oval Office, Mr. Obama’s position “evolved.” On Tuesday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad responded to Mr. Romney’s comments regarding Jerusalem and the U.S. relation-ship with Israel. Without naming the presumptive Republican nominee, he declaimed those who would “kiss the foot” of Israel and make “concessions to get some pennies for [his] campaign.” Mr. Ahmadinejad also denounced the new round of economic sanctions Congress is considering as “ridiculous” and “political warfare.” House and Senate negotiators agree on language for the Iran Threat Reduction Act, which expands sanctions on Iran’s oil and finan-cial sectors and extends penal-ties to third parties who assist Iran in evading punitive actions. A vote on the bill is expected as soon as Wednesday. Trying to get ahead of the sanctions curve, Mr. Obama signed a new executive order on Tuesday tak-ing additional steps. Speaking in Tunisia on Monday, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta acknowledged that economic sanctions have yet to dissuade Iran from its nuclear ambitions. He said the “results are not obvious at the moment,” but expressed hope that negotia-tions would lead Iran to “ulti-mately do what’s right in joining the international family.” The secretary reiterated that should negotiations fail, all options were on the table — and on Tuesday in Cairo, he rejected the idea that he was “discussing potential attack plans” during his Mideast sojourn. Instead, he said he was discussing “various contingen-cies and how we could respond.” That’s six of one, half a dozen of the other. Mr. Romney has adopted a tougher line on Iran, or at least a blunter one. Critics pounced on his statements regarding Jerusalem and Iran as “gaffes,” but they were not mistakes, just different priorities. While the White House has sought to separate the two issues, Mr. Romney understands that they are necessarily linked because that is how Tehran views the world. The United States loses credibility with Iran on the nuclear issue when it caves to pressure on the peace process. Without facing a credible threat, Iran will not abandon its nuclear program. Whether Tehran will blink in the face of “various con-tingencies” remains to be seen, but presenting the mullahs with attack plans would be faster. F or the past seven days, Mitt Romney, the presump-tive Republican Presidential nominee, spoke about American foreign policy and traveled the globe, starting with an address to the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention in Reno, Nev., then a trip to Great Britain, Israel and Poland. What has Mr. Romney revealed about his world view? Not nearly enough. In broad terms, Mr. Romney has sought to distinguish him-self from President Obama by suggesting he would be more muscular in projecting U.S. leadership and power, in what he often depicts as a titanic struggle of good vs. evil. In speaking to the veterans, Mr. Romney claimed that President Obama “sacrificed” missile defense “as a unilat-eral concession” to Russia when a Bush-era plan was reconfigured, moving it away from Poland and the Czech Republic. But he stopped short of explaining what he would do differently than Mr. Obama, whose alternative $8.4 billion-a-year missile defense plan has hardly comforted Russia. Mr. Romney sounded the klaxon about China’s violations of human rights and other con-cerns but offered not a single constructive idea for managing the deeply intertwined relation-ship with Beijing. He was vague on how he would respond to the upheavals of the Arab Spring. Mr. Romney’s trip ended on an unfortunate note in Warsaw. For days, frustrated journal-ists have not been permitted to question Mr. Romney. When they shouted questions at a wreath-laying ceremony, a testy spokesman rudely told them to get lost. The spokesman apolo-gized, but the questions were left hanging. With fewer than 100 days until the election, we hope Mr. Romney will come up with serious answers on foreign policy.

and school supplies priced at $15 or less will be taxfree this weekend. School supplies include pens, notebooks, paper, binders, lunch boxes, fold ers, scissors, glue, protrac tors and calculators. Some items, despite price, are still taxable, including sporting equip ment, watches, jewelry, sunglasses, luggage, jump drives, printer paper, sta plers, ink cartridges and books, according to the Florida Department of Revenue. The average person with children in kindergarten through 12th grade will spend $688.62 on clothes, electronics, shoes and school supplies, accord ing to a National Retail Federation survey. That number is up from last years figure of $603.63. Total spending is expect ed to reach $30.3 billion, according to the survey. Combined with spending from college students, back to school is the second big gest consumer spending event for retailers, behind the winter holidays, accord ing to NRF. Nearly 40 percent of par ents will take their school shopping lists online this year, doubling since 2007 when 21.4 percent planned to shop online, according to the survey. The tax-free weekend applies to purchases online and by mail, as long as the purchase is made between Friday and Sunday and the items are eligible to be taxfree, according to the state Department of Revenue. Rep. Elizabeth Porter, RLake City, introduced the sales tax holiday bill in the house during the last legis lative session. With the amount of money it takes to outfit children for the school year, saving money from the sales tax helps families, said Koby Adams, Porters legislative assistant. Thats just kind of a small way to let them have extra money in their pock et, he said. Adams said recent stud ies have shown shoppers buy more things during a sales tax holiday than they normally would, which increases sales tax revenue and boosts retailers. Patti Wilson, of Wilsons Outfitters, encouraged par ents to shop locally for the items students need and want. Wilson said her store, on East Baya Avenue, is stocked with the T-shirts, flip-flops and backpacks kids want, without the road-trip. Its better than going to Gainesville, she said. Customer often shop the stores sale racks and the sales tax holiday allows par ents to save even more, she said. Money is so tight for people these days, Wilson said. Its a way for the cus tomer to save money with out us having to discount our products even more, she said. Columbia County School District students do not have uniform requirements so high-fashion items like jeans with bling and graph ic T-shirts are popular at Smittys, which has fash ions other than western clothing, Smith said. Smith said the store always has a back-to-school sale going on during the sales tax holiday, adding to the savings. Theres a whole lot of discount going on, she said. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 6A Political advertisement, paid for and approved by Jimmy Prevatt for 3rd Circuit Court Judge, Group 5.

We pulled an attack line and knocked the fire down and by the time I got a decent knockdown on the fire, the county units showed up and Steve (Bedenbaugh) made entry through the back door. Tad Cervantes, Columbia County Fire Department shift commander, said the available information indicated that there was a possible handicapped individual still inside the struc ture and a search team was established. Crews went into the structure to perform a pri mary search and within minutes the occupant was located and removed. Bedenbaugh, who has been a full-time firefighter for about 10 weeks, was one of the first in, and immediately began to call for anyone needing assistance. When we first went in it was a lot of white smoke, he said. We were yelling: Fire depart ment, is there anybody in here? and we heard him (Bach). The fire was coming through the attic pretty strong when we got there. Once the firefighters found Bach, they quickly rolled him onto the porch of the home, and then hoisted him down the steps. Bach said he didnt know the home was on fire. At first I smelled something while I was in the living room and I went to kitchen to see whether I left something on the stove, Bach said. By the time I got to the ... kitchen I realized I didnt leave anything on the stove but the smell started get ting stronger and smoke was getting in there too. Before I knew it the firefighters were in there. Larry Shallar, Bachs sonin-law and a Lake City Police Department officer, was on duty Tuesday night when he got a phone call indicating there was a fire at his father-in-laws house. When he got there, firefighters were already inside the house. At that point I wasnt sure whether he (Bach) was a victim or whether he was all right, Shallar said. Shallar said he initially called his wife, Christina, and told her about the fire, but when he heard there was a possible vic tim in the home, he called her back and told her not to come to the scene. And then he saw his father-in-law being carried to safety. When they came around the corner carrying him, it was such a relief, he said. Christina Shallar said she thought the rescue was pretty amazing. Theyre out there doing their job day after day and they dont feel any heroism from it, but thats what they are heroes, because they go in and save lives, no different from police officers and deputies, she said. They dont consider themselves better than anybody else, but they really are. The Shallars said their chil dren were excited to know their grandfather was all right after the fire damaged the home. At first they were all upset and kept calling and they wanted to come over, Larry Shallar said. They happy and excited now though. Cervantes said the fire is under investigation as a pos sible case of arson and the case has been turned over to the state fire marshals office for investigation. The fire appeared to have started around two lawnmowers located under the carport, he said. The fire then went up the side of the carport and got into the attic. Fire department reports indi cate the blaze damaged 25-50 percent of the home, causing an estimated $124,000 worth of damage. Bach, on the other hand, joked that he might be a little better off than before the fire. I came out better than I went in, joked Bach, who suffers from muscular dystrophy. Ive never been saved before. Maybe Gods got a purpose for me. Cervantes said Bachs rescue was the first for the county. Lake City Fire Department Chief Carlton Tunsil and Asst. Chief Frank Armijo said it was the first joint rescue by both depart ments for a fire victim. These guys are my heroes, Bach said as he shook Bedenbaughs and Boozers hands on Wednesday. Without them, I wouldnt see my kids, grandkids or nothing again. If it wasnt for these two guys I would have been toast.

OFF ALL CLEARANCE ITEMS NEW YORK (AP) How can a cancer come back after its apparently been eradicated? Three new studies are bolstering a long-debated idea: that tumors contain their own pool of stem cells that can multiply and keep fuel ing the cancer, seeding regrowth. If thats true, scientists will need to find a way to kill those cells, apart from how they attack the rest of the tumor. Stem cells in healthy tis sues are known for their ability to produce any kind of cell. The new research deals with a different kind, cancer stem cells. Some researchers, but not all, believe they lurk as a per sisting feature in tumors. Over the past decade, studies have found evi dence for them in tumors like breast and colon can cers. But this research has largely depended on trans planting human cancer cells into mice that dont have immune systems, an artificial environment that raises questions about the relevance of the results. Now, three stud ies reported online Wednesday in the journals Nature and Science pres ent evidence for cancer stem cells within the original tumors. Again, the research relies on mice. That and other factors mean the new findings still wont convince everyone that cancer stem cells are key to finding more power ful treatments. But researcher Luis Parada, of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, believes his team is onto something. He says that for the type of brain tumor his team studied, weve identified the true enemy. If his finding applies to other cancers, he said, then even if chemotherapy drastically shrinks a tumor but doesnt affect its sup ply of cancer stem cells, very little progress has actually been made. The three studies used labeling techniques to MIKE STOBBE AP Medical Writer ATLANTA (AP) It sounds like an unfolding epidemic: A decade ago, virtually no one in the U.S. seemed to have a problem eating gluten in bread and other foods. Now, millions do. Gluten-free products are flying off grocery shelves, and restau rants are boasting of meals with no gluten. Celebrities on TV talk shows chat about the digestive discomfort they blame on the wheat protein they now shun. Some churches even offer glutenfree Communion wafers. I dont know whether theres more people getting this or that more people are noticing they have a problem, said the Rev. Richard Allen, pastor at Mamaroneck United Methodist Church, north of New York City. Or is it just another food fad? Faddishness is a big part of it. Americans will spend an esti mated $7 billion this year on foods labeled gluten-free, according to the market research firm Mintel. But the best estimates are that more than half the consumers buying these products perhaps way more than half dont have any clear-cut reaction to gluten. They buy gluten-free because they think it will help them lose weight, or because they seem to feel better, or because they mis takenly believe they are sensitive to gluten. We have a lot of self-diagnosing going on out there, said Melissa Abbott, who tracks the gluten-free market for the Hartman Group, a Seattle-area market research orga nization. Fads aside, research suggests more people are truly getting sick from the gluten found in wheat, rye and barley, but the reasons arent clear. In the most serious cases, glu ten triggers celiac disease. The condition causes abdominal pain, bloating and intermittent diar rhea. Those with the ailment dont absorb nutrients well and can suf fer weight loss, fatigue, rashes and other problems. It was once considered extremely rare in the U.S. But about 20 years ago, a few sci entists began exploring why celiac disease was less common here than in Europe and other countries. They concluded that it wasnt less common here; it was just under-diagnosed. More recently, a research team led by the Mayo Clinics Dr. Joseph Murray looked at blood samples taken from Americans in the 1950s and compared them with samples taken from people today, and determined it wasnt just better diagnosis driving up the numbers. Celiac disease actu ally was increasing. Indeed, the research confirms estimates that about 1 percent of U.S. adults have it today, making it four times more common now than it was 50 years ago, Murray and his colleagues reported Tuesday in the American Journal of Gastroenterology. That translates to nearly 2 million Americans with celiac disease. Celiac disease is different from an allergy to wheat, which affects a much smaller number of people, mostly children who outgrow it. Scientists suggest that there may be more celiac disease today because people eat more pro cessed wheat products like pastas and baked goods than in decades past, and those items use types of wheat that have a higher gluten content. Gluten helps dough rise and gives baked goods structure and texture. Or it could be due to changes made to wheat, Murray said. In the 1950s, scientists began cross-breeding wheat to make hardier, shorter and better-grow ing plants. It was the basis of the Green Revolution that boosted wheat harvests worldwide. Norman Borlaug, the U.S. plant scientist behind many of the innovations, won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work. But the gluten in wheat may have somehow become even more troublesome for many people, Murray said. That also may have contributed to what is now called gluten sen sitivity. Doctors recently developed a definition for gluten sensitivity, but its an ambiguous one. Its a label for people who suffer bloat ing and other celiac symptoms and seem to be helped by avoid ing gluten, but dont actually have celiac disease. Celiac disease is diagnosed with blood testing, genetic testing, or biopsies of the small intestine. The case for gluten sensitivity was bolstered last year by a very small but often-cited Australian study. Volunteers who had symp toms were put on a gluten-free diet or a regular diet for six weeks, and they werent told which one. Those who didnt eat gluten had fewer problems with bloating, tiredness and irregular bowel movements. Clearly, there are patients who are gluten-sensitive, said Dr. Sheila Crowe, a San Diegobased physician on the board of the American Gastroenterological Association. What is hotly debated is how many people have the problem, she added. Its impossible to know because the definition is nebulous, she said. One of the most widely cited estimates comes from Dr. Alessio Fasano, a University of Maryland researcher who led studies that changed the understanding of how common celiac disease is in the U.S. Fasano believes 6 percent of U.S. adults have gluten sensitiv ity. But thats based on a review of patients at his clinic hardly a representative sample of the general public. Whatever the number, mar keting of foods without gluten has exploded. Those with celiac disease, of course, are grateful. Until only a few years ago, it was difficult to find grocery and din ing options. Its a matter of keeping people safe, said Michelle Kelly, an Atlanta-area woman who started a gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free bakery in 2010 after her son was diagnosed with celiac disease. While conventional bak ers use wheat flour, she uses such ingredients as millet flour, sorghum flour, brown rice flour and tapioca starch. At one of Atlantas largest and busiest health food stores, Return to Eden, manager Troy DeGroff said over a third of his customers come in for gluten-free products for themselves or their family. Thank you, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, he said, referring to one of the hosts of the daytime talk show The View who helped popularize gluten-free eating. Its hard to say how many of his customers have a medical reason for skipping gluten. But theyre at least paying attention to what theyre sticking in their mouth, he said. On a recent Friday afternoon, several customers bought glu ten-free, though none had been diagnosed with celiac disease or had digestive problems from eat ing wheat. Julia White said she picks up gluten-free items when her granddaughters visit. Theyve been diagnosed with problems, she said. They dont just make this up. Another customer, Meagan Jain, said she made gluten-free cupcakes with a school friend and liked the taste. But she doesnt buy gluten-free often because its expensive. For her, Its a fad. Its part of the eclectic, alternative lifestyle. Is your problem gluten? Or faddish eating? Bertha Domimguez prepares gluten-free dough at Pure Knead bakery sandwich bread in Decatur, Ga. Scientists suggest that there may be more celiac disease today because people eat more processed wheat products than in decades past, which use types of wheat that have a higher gluten content.

Collectively, they give very strong sup port to the cancer stem cell theory, said Jeffrey M. Rosen, a professor of molecu lar and cellular biology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He did not participate in the work but supports the theory, which he said is widely accepted. Another scientist whos skeptical about the theory, and said he has plenty of com pany, said the new papers did not change his mind. Paradas team worked with mice geneti cally primed to develop a certain type of brain tumor. The scientists genetically labeled particular cells in the tumor and then attacked the cancer with the same drug given to human patients. It kills growing tumor cells and temporarily stops the cancers growth. After treatment, when the tumor started growing again in the mice, the researchers showed that the vast major ity, if not all, of its new cells had descend ed from the labeled cells. Apparently these were the tumors cancer stem cells, they concluded. Parada said his team is now trying to isolate cancer stem cells from mouse brain cancers to study them and perhaps get some leads for developing therapies to eradicate them. He also said that preliminary study of human brain tumors is producing results consistent with what his team found in the mice. Paradas study appears in Nature. In a second Nature report, British and Belgian researchers found evidence for cancer stem cells in early stage skin tumors in mice. And in the journal Science, a Dutch group found such evidence in mouse intestinal polyps, which are precursors to colon cancer. Scott Kern of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore is skepti cal about whether tumors contain cancer stem cells. He said that since the new studies didnt involve human tumors, its not clear how relevant they are to people. The two European studies focused largely on lesions that can lead to tumors, he said. And as for Paradas brain cancer study, he said he believed the results could be explained without relying on the cancer stem cell theory.

Strauss, D.O.,F.A.C.O.I TUMORS: Speculation on the cause Continued From Page 7A WASHINGTON (AP) A young man talking on a cell phone meanders along the edge of a lonely train platform at night. Suddenly he stumbles, loses his balance and pitches over the side, landing head first on the tracks. Fortunately there were no trains approaching the Philadelphia-area station at that moment, because it took the man several minutes to recover enough to climb out of danger. But the incident, captured last year by a security camera and provided to The Associated Press, underscores the risks of what government officials and safety experts say is a growing problem: distracted walking. On city streets, in suburban parking lots and in shopping centers, there is usually some one strolling while talking on a phone, texting with his head down, listening to music, or play ing a video game. The problem isnt as widely discussed as dis tracted driving, but the danger is real. Reports of injuries to dis tracted walkers treated at hos pital emergency rooms have more than quadrupled in the past seven years and are almost certainly underreported. There has been a spike in pedestrians killed and injured in traffic acci dents, but there is no reliable data on how many were distract ed by electronics. We are where we were with cellphone use in cars 10 years or so ago. We knew it was a problem, but we didnt have the data, said Jonathan Akins, deputy executive director of the Governors Highway Safety Association, which represents state highway safety offices. State and local officials are struggling to figure out how to respond, and in some cases ask ing how far government should go in trying to protect people from themselves. In Delaware, highway safety officials opted for a public educa tion campaign, placing decals on crosswalks and sidewalks at busy intersections urging pedes trians to Look up. Drivers arent always looking out for you. Philadelphia officials are draft ing a safety campaign that will be aimed in part at pedestrians who are looking at their devices instead of where theyre going. One of the messages will cer tainly be pick your head up I want to say nitwit, but I prob ably shouldnt call them names, said Rina Cutler, deputy mayor for transportation and public utilities. As an April Fools Day joke with a serious message, Philadelphia officials taped off an e-lane for distracted pedes trians on a sidewalk outside downtown office buildings. Some didnt get that it was a joke. The sad part is we had people who, once they realized we were going to take the e-lane away, got mad because they thought it was really helpful to not have people get in their way while they were walking and tex ting, Cutler said. When the Utah Transit Authority adopted an ordinance barring pedestrians from using cellphones, headphones or other distracting electronic devices while crossing the tracks of its light rail system on the streets of Salt Lake City, subject to a $50 fine, the Legislature refused to make it a statewide law. Look, I get distracted all the time, bristled Utah State Rep. Craig Frank, a Republican who opposed the proposal. I have a smartphone, too. Walking on sidewalks, in stores and malls, and maybe in a crosswalk some times Im using my cellphone. But I try to stay connected to my environment. I never thought the government needed to cite me for using my cellphone in a reasonable manner. Distracted walking bills in the Arkansas, Illinois and New York legislatures also went nowhere. It sounds very ridiculous, said Tia Little, a pedestrian in down town Washington. I mean, its our phone. We should be able to use it and walk and talk if we choose to, walk and text or whatever. Distracted pedestrians stumble into danger Pedestrians cross K Street and Connecticut Ave. NW near the Farragut North Metro Entrance in downtown Washington. Across the country on city streets, in suburban parking lots and in shopping centers, there is usually someone strolling while talking on a phone, texting with their head down, listening to music, or playing a video game.

BELOW : Tyrone Mills, 11, works through a footwork drill as Col umbia High assistant coach Dennis Dotson looks on last year. By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Fort White High football is cutting back on its camp plans. As a statement for team solidarity the last two years, the Indians have spent the first week of fall practice camping out in the gym. This year, the team will only spend Wednesday night bunking together. The season will again start with a parents meeting at 6 p.m. Sunday in the gym. Practice begins at 8 a.m. Monday. On Sunday, coach Demetric Jackson will speak to the parents on team rules and preview the season. He will check to make sure all necessary paperwork is complete and each player has a physical. Jackson said the change in camp plans was due to a new heat acclimation policy that is in effect for this year. “For the first week you can only have one practice per day,” Jackson said. “You can have two-a-days in the second week but only on a 2-1-2-1 schedule. You can have walk-throughs, but with no ball, no running and no sled work.” Because of the new requirements, Jackson said the team will practice on Saturday of the second week. The Indians open the season at home on Aug. 24 with a kickoff classic game against Suwannee High. The first regular season game is at home against Hamilton County High on Aug. 31. The Fort White Quarterback Club is cook-ing for the Sunday meeting. The club meets at 7 p.m. Mondays in the teachers lounge at the high school. The Quarterback Club has an ongoing fundraiser — Ruby Tuesday GiveBack Night — every Thursday in August. The club has a flyer that must be presented and Ruby Tuesday will donate 20 percent of the bill. For information on the By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comPart of building Columbia High back into the power program the Tigers once were is engaging the com-munity. Head coach Brian Allen has been visible throughout Lake City since taking over last season for the Tigers. Now in his second season, Allen will continue the tradition of giving back as he holds the Brian Allen Future Tigers Football Camp on Saturday. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday and the camp is expected to run until 2 p.m. at the high school. Allen is looking forward to introducing the sport to a brand new generation of Tigers. “Part of the fun will be showing off the facilities,” Allen said. “That’s something we didn’t do much of last year.” Allen plans to have a projector playing highlight tape as well as tour future Tigers throughout the weight room, his office and the locker room. “We live in a materialistic age, so we want to show off the cleats and gloves,” Allen said. “Kids like those sort of things. It’s an opportunity to show them a little what it’s like to live a day in the life of a Tiger.” Allen said that the camp will be in accordance to what a usual practice is like for Columbia. “It’s going to be similar to a Tuesday prac-tice,” Allen said. “We’ll take them through our speed-track machine, we’ll work in the sand pit, but I don’t know if we’ll go through the mat drills. We’ll take them through the shoots and rotate them into agility drills. The end of the camp, we’ll probably break them up into a couple of teams and have a flag football game.” In all it’s just Allen’s way of exposing the program to the community. “It’s all about trying to give back to the youth,”

DEAR ABBY: My younger brother confided that he got a girl pregnant. I’m the only one he has told and it’s killing me. The baby is about two months old, and my folks still don’t know they could possibly be grandparents. My brother doesn’t want to tell them right now, and he also doesn’t want a pater-nity test to see if the baby is his because he doesn’t want to face the reality that he could really be a father. Abby, knowing that I could have a niece out there is killing me because there are so many children who harbor resentment toward their absentee fathers. I really want to do the right thing and get my parents involved, but if I do I’ll lose my brother’s trust. If I don’t tell, I will have to live with the fact that I am abetting my brother being another ste-reotypical dead-beat dad. Please help. -AUNT IN DISGUISE DEAR AUNT IN DISGUISE: How old is your brother? From your description, he is acting like a 14-year-old. Have another talk with him and tell him that because he is old enough to father a child, he’s also old enough to accept responsibility for his actions. The time to tell his parents everything and start supporting his child in every way he can is now. Of course, before making any announcements, he should be sure the baby is actually his. A paternity test will let him off the hook if he isn’t the father. So give him a deadline to have the test done, and if it shows he is the baby daddy, set another one for him to inform your parents or YOU WILL. The longer the delay, the harder it will be. DEAR ABBY: I recently discovered that my mother has been purchasing cata-log items using my name and not paying for them. I have confronted her, but she denies it even though the items are in her home. My mother is much better off financially than I am and has no need to use my credit. I have spoken to the companies and had mixed results. Some have agreed to put the bill in her name, others refused. At this point, I don’t know what to do. Any advice would be appreciated. -JOANNA IN BROOKLYN, N.Y. DEAR JOANNA: Your mother’s behavior is shameful. Talk to your credit card companies and ask for new credit cards. If this is allowed to continue, your mother will destroy your credit. Tell her that you expect her to pay the charges she has incurred immediately, and you want proof of payment. Warn her that if it doesn’t happen, you will inform the fraud division of your local police and let them deal with her. Then follow through. DEAR ABBY: I’m 13 and have a problem. My friends are jealous of me. They say I’m spoiled rot-ten. I honestly don’t think I am that spoiled, and I love my friends dearly. I am bothered by their rude comments. How do I ask them to stop or should I just ignore it? -UNSPOILED IN INDIANA DEAR UNSPOILED: The next time they say it, say: “It hurts my feel-ings when you say that. A spoiled person is someone who doesn’t appreci-ate what she has -and I appreciate EVERYthing I have. Especially friends like you.” DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Put your skills to work and you will find a way to make extra cash. Contact people or organizations that can help you excel. Love and romance are in the stars, and a closer bond with someone spe-cial should be your goal. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Patience will help when dealing with difficult people. Don’t let stubborn-ness set in and ruin your plans. Listen to an expe-rienced person offering you advice that can help you avoid a costly mistake. Work hard and say little. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Speak up and share your options. Plenty of offers will come in if you sell your ideas convinc-ingly. Love and romance are in the stars, and taking a moment to share with someone special or to meet someone new should be scheduled. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Reconsider what you need and what you can do without. Budgeting and downsizing will help you get back on track and ease your stress. Don’t keep secrets, especially when they pertain to your finan-cial future. Reassess your situation. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Emotional issues should be dealt with swiftly so you can move forward and accomplish your personal and professional goals. A trip or change of scenery will do you good and lead to favorable alterations in how or where you live. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Maintain your position and the quality of service you offer. Now is not the time to make a mistake or renege on a promise. Protect your reputation, your assets and your posi-tion. Don’t let a personal relationship interfere with your work. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t miss out because of laziness. Finish what you start and you will impress someone interesting. Networking and socializing will lead to personal and professional partnership possibilities. A job opportunity can change your life. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Take a secretive approach to whatever you are doing, and you will be able to maintain control and avoid someone copy-ing you. Don’t overspend to make someone happy. Money can’t buy love. Let your intuition guide you. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take care of business. There is money to be made and there are deals to be formulated if you take the time to see matters through. Don’t give in to pressure when you know in your heart what needs to be done. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Hold out until you have all the information you need to make a sound decision. Someone is likely to stray from the original plan. Ulterior motives may disrupt your position and your future. Prepare to change your strategy if necessary. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Embrace change and face any challenges head-on. Stretch your skills and strive to incorpo-rate what you can do into new formats. Romance is heading your way, and updating your image will give you added confidence and charisma. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It may be difficult to keep a secret. Try not to disappoint someone count-ing on you. Too much of anything will backfire, leaving you in a precarious position. Focus on helping others, not seeing what you can get for nothing. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Anybody can bring items by the field to donate from 2-5:30 p.m. on Friday, Allen said. Were also going to have a membership drive for our quarterback club. Its going to be a big day for our youth and team. But the camp isnt all about football. Allen wants to make sure that the camp attendees have a clear mes sage of whats expected of them to become Tigers. Im going to let them know things Im looking for, Allen said. They have to conduct themselves in the right manner. We want their appearance to be good and dont want to have to tell them to pull their pants up. We dont want to hear any colorful language. We expect them to reach that level and beyond. Allen realizes as the face of Columbia, he has a role to play in the development of the youth of the city. Coaches and teachers make a big impact, Allen said. We cant let ourselves move away from emphasiz ing those things.

The Tigers will take the field to begin fall practice at 8 a.m. on Monday. FSU dismisses Greg Reid By BRENT KALLESTAD Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Senior cornerback Greg Reid, one of the nations top punt returners, was dismissed from Florida States football team Wednesday for a viola tion of team rules. Coach Jimbo Fisher had no further comment after announcing that Reid was done at Florida State, where he had emerged as the schools best punt returner since Deion Sanders in the late 1980s. Reid needed 313 yards to surpass Sanders school record of 1,429 yards on punt returns. The 5-8, 180-pound Reid led the nation in punt returns as a freshman in 2009. He had two intercep tions and 32 tackles last sea son in his second year as a starting cornerback. He finishes his Florida State career with seven intercep tions and 120 tackles. Reid has one year of eligi bility remaining if he choos es to transfer to another school, although he would retain his scholarship at Florida State if he decides to remain at the university as a student. Fisher will likely have to turn to an untested returner in Reids absence. Running back Chris Thompson, who is coming off a serious back injury, and wide receiver Rashad Greene are the only two returning players who have returned punts other than Reid the past two sea sons. The coaching staff will probably be reluctant to expose Greene, expected to be the Seminoles top playmaker, to the rigors of the return game. Finding a replacement in the secondary wont be as difficult since Reid was often victimized by taller receivers. Reids departure comes three weeks after his lat est run-in with authorities when he was charged with marijuana possession after being stopped by a Georgia state trooper near his home in Valdosta, Ga. Reid, 21, was arrested last year on charges of resisting arrest and perjury charges. Prosecutors even tually dropped the charges. He was also suspended for a game last season for an unspecified violation of team rules. Its the two time in as many years that Fisher has had to dismiss one of his top players. Wide receiver Jarmon Fortson was kicked off the team in August of 2010. He had caught 45 passes for a career high 610 yards and four touchdowns. PSU players transfer STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Penn States loss could turn into a big gain for Southern California. Star tailback Silas Redd bolted Happy Valley for Los Angeles in a season of great expectations for the Trojans. A 1,200-yard rush er, Redd will join heralded quarterback Matt Barkley on a team already favored to win the Pac-12 and return to the Rose Bowl. Top reserve line backer Khairi Fortt said he was transferring to California. ASSOCIATED PRESS United States Shannon Vreeland (left) and Missy Franklin (right) embrace Allison Schmitt (foreground) and Dana Vollmer (center) after they won gold in the womens 4x200-meter freestyle relay swimming final at the Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London on Wednesday. Gyurta sets world record in Olympic swimming, U.S. women capture gold By PAUL NEWBERRY Associated Press LONDON Nathan Adrian took out the Missile by a fingertip. Daniel Gyurta and Rebecca Soni took down two more world records at the pool. Adrian, a 23-year-old largely overshadowed by American stars such as Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte, made a name for himself by winning the 100meter Olympic freestyle Wednesday. He lunged to the wall to edge James The Missile Magnussen by one-hundredth of a sec ond the slighest margin possible and again deny Australia its first individ ual swimming gold of the London Games. Adrian pounded the water, then put his hands over his eyes while dan gling over the lane rope, as if he couldnt believe the beside his name. Magnussen hung at the end of the pool, staring straight ahead at the wall in disbelief, the wall he got to just a fraction of a second too late. I had no idea, to be hon est, said Adrian, whose winning time was 47.52 seconds. Im a guy that has a lot of speed and I can go out fast and I die a little more than he does. Its a little nerve-racking the second 50. I just had to really focus on it and stay strong. Gyurta set his world record in the 200 breast stroke, needing every bit of it to hold off Michael Jamiesons furious bid for Britains first gold at the pool. The Hungarian touched in 2 minutes, 7.28 seconds, shaving 0.03 off the previous mark set by Christian Sprenger of Australia at the 2009 world championships in a nowbanned bodysuit. Soni showed plenty of speed in the womens 200 breast and it wasnt even the final. Swimming a semi final heat, the American touched in 2:20.00 to break yet another of the bodysuit records, a time of 2:20.12 set by Canadas Annamay Pierse at the worlds, the fifth world mark to fall at the London Games and further proof its still pos sible to go fast really fast in textile suits. There was even more heartache for the Aussies in the last event of the night, when Allison Schmitt chased down Alicia Coutts to give the Americans gold in the 4x200 freestyle relay. Schmitt dived in the water about a half-second behind, but passed Coutts on their first return lap and won going away in 7:42.92. The Australians settled for another silver in 7:44.41, while France took the bronze. Schmitt is turning into one of the biggest American stars of the games, picking up her second gold to go along with a silver and a bronze. Seventeen-year-old Missy Franklin also picked up her second gold swim ming the leadoff leg, and Dana Vollmer claimed her second gold in London. Shannon Vreeland round ed out the gold medal-win ning quartet. Adrian came through with the race of his life, giving the U.S. its first title in swimmings signature event since Matt Biondi at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Canadas Brent Hayden took silver in 47.80, his countrys first medal ever in the furious down-andback sprint. We were in the ready room and we watched it and just went nuts, Lochte said. We were screaming and everything. That was one of the greatest finishes. Were so happy for him. Jiao Liuyang of China set an Olympic record to win the womens 200 butterfly. She was second at the final turn but sprinted into the lead to touch in 2:04.06 seconds, 0.12 quicker than countrywoman Liu Ziges time at the 2008 Beijing Games.
