Jeramey Sweeny, 30, a resident in the Windsong Apartment complex in Lake City, died in the confrontation. Lake City Police officers responded to a 911 distress call at 2:27 a.m. Tuesday at 2720 SW Windsong Circle in the large apartment complex. Apartment 203 in Building 5 was Sweeny’s residence, according to police. It was unclear the nature of the 911 call beyond there being some type of disturbance. Steve Shaw, Lake City Police Department pub-lic information officer, did not give the specific nature of the disturbance call. He said distur-bance calls can be anything from an argument to a fight, but gener-ally it’s an argument. Shaw said authorities received the 911 call at 2:27 a.m. and arrived at the apartment at 2:28 a.m. “My understanding is that the 911 call came from within the apartment,” he said. Officers Brian Bruenger, Garrett Register and Sgt. Larry Shallar responded to the disturbance call. As Bruenger, Register and Shallar approached the door, Sweeny reportedly exited the apartment with a handgun and pointed it at the officers. Bruenger alerted the other two officers to Sweeny having a handgun and he drew his issued service weapon and fired at Sweeny, killing him iPad glad From staff reportsThird Circuit State Attorney Robert L. “Skip” Jarvis misused three confidential databases during the past 18 months to check background information on his politi-cal opponents, several individuals in the region and his family members, according to findings compiled by a special prosecutor in the case. The full details of the case presented by Fifth Circuit State Attorney Brad King, a special appointee to the case by Gov. Rick Scott, were released in a nine-page syn-opsis on Tuesday afternoon. King revealed the details of what he would have pre-sented to a Leon County grand jury on Tuesday. Jarvis was not charged with anything. He said he is innocent in all matters. Jarvis avoided being called in front of the grand jury on Monday by taking a deal offered him by King to withdraw his can-didacy for re-election and agree never to seek the elected office again. As part of the deal, Jarvis is allowed to remain in office for the remainder of his term that ends in December, but his certifications to review secure databases were revoked by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, (Above) Language arts teacher Helen Pattison teaches a lesson to her seventh-grade students who will be utilizing new iPads for the entire year.

Democratssearch forreplacementcandidate By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comFlorida Democratic Party officials plan to have a replacement candidate compete for the Third Judicial Circuit State Attorney post after the incumbent, Robert L. “Skip” Jarvis, withdrew from the race Monday. “The party is actively working to find a candidate,” said A. Brannon Jordan, Florida Democratic Party spokeswoman. The Democratic Executive Committees in the seven-county circuit have five days from receipt of the state’s letter to call a meeting and send the name of a replace-ment candidate to the state party. When one candidate is selected, the candidate’s name will be sent to the Division of Elections. By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comA new school supply created a buzz of excitement as Epiphany Catholic School middle-schoolers returned from summer break. This year, 38 students in sixth through eighth grade were equipped with an Apple iPad 2, a touch-screen com-puter, as part of a pilot pro-gram among schools in the Diocese of Saint Augustine. “We’ve all been waiting for this since summer,” said Olivia Anschultz, a seventh-grader at Epiphany, while using her iPad on the first day of school Thursday. A grant from Shelter Hill Foundation and Speedwell Foundation paid for 60 per-cent of the equipment and Net Texts provided free use of their application, said Epiphany Principal Rita Klenk. Two Catholic schools in Jacksonville were also select-ed for the grant. Epiphany was selected because the area is considered rural, she said. “There’s a benefit to being one of the smallest and most rural schools in the diocese,” Klenk said. While some schools use iPads just to read eBooks and digital content, Epiphany will use Net Texts, where teach-ers can create their own les-sons and use existing courses, she said. Students will access the app on their iPad to view courses filled with videos, slideshows, text, audiobooks, and Web links. Students can also take notes on their iPads, use a host of educational apps and take pictures. The school will still incorporate some textbooks into lessons, Klenk said. The school installed wireless internet capabilities over the summer so students can connect to the Internet in classrooms, she said. “They are just really, really excited about it,” said lan-guage arts teacher Helen Pattison. Pattison said she used an iPad in the classroom last year, but students are more excited to have the technol-ogy in their own hands. In other grades levels at the school, teachers have iPads to use during lessons, Klenk said. Students signed an eightpage acceptable use policy form and staff will meet with parents about the devices before students begin bring-ing the iPads home, Klenk said. “There will be no Angry Birds coming back the first day they take it home,” she said, referring to a popular game. Many students are already familiar with the technology and are not afraid to play with the devices to figure out all they can do, she said. Klenk said Epiphany is likely the only school in the area where students have their own iPad to bring home each night. Epiphany students said they think using the latest technology will help them in the future. “It actually makes learning easier,” said Callie Pierce, Epiphany seventh-grader.

Zimmerman: no medical records ORLANDO The for mer neighborhood watch leader charged with fatally shooting Trayvon Martin is objecting to prosecutors request for his medical records. George Zimmerman asked a judge this week to stop a subpoena for his medical records. A hearing is set for Friday. Zimmerman says the request is too broad and will include information that is irrelevant. The medical information would be made public if it is released to prosecutors under Floridas discovery rules. Zimmerman is asking that the judge review the medical records and decide which, if any, should be released. Hes charged with sec ond-degree murder for fatally shooting 17-year-old Martin during a confronta tion last February in a gated community in suburban Orlando. He has pleaded not guilty and is claiming self-defense. Orlando giving away 5 houses ORLANDO Want a free house?

BROWN hbrown@lakecityreporter.com Community redevelop ment advisory members approved a motion to move forward on bringing the North Florida Broadband Authority to the old Powers Building in downtown Lake City at the CRA meeting on Tuesday night. The board moved to fund a phase one environmental assessment of the building, a necessary step before negotiations take place, city manager Wendell Johnson said on Tuesday. This project is very important for downtown renovation, he said. Johnson called the build ing the most important building for the renovation of downtown, aside from The Hotel Blanche. NFBAs new site would be located at the old Powers Building on 388 North Marion Ave. The building was appraised for $150,000 in 2011, Johnson said. The city is considering buying the building with a CRA acqui sition grant. NFBA would contribute to renovations of the building. The NFBA is going to put in a substantial amount of money into renovating that building, Johnson said. Negotiations for the build ings acquisition and renova tion have not yet been for malized. The CRA also discussed the possibility of making a modification to the CRA facade grant to allow busi ness owners the ability to receive grant funding before their proposed proj ect has been completed. Community redevelop ment administrator Jackie Kite said the adjustment may make the grant more accessible to some small business owners. Further discussion of modifications to the facade grant application will be discussed at the CRAs next meeting on Sept. 11. CRA moving forward on Broadband Authority Associated Press MIAMI Forecasters cast a wary eye Tuesday on Tropical Storm Isaac, which was looming in the Atlantic Ocean and poses a potential threat to Florida during next weeks Republican National Convention in Tampa. Its much too early to say with any certainty whether it will gain hurricane strength or make a beeline for Tampa, on Floridas west coast. But its the type of weather that convention organizers knew was a possibility during the peak of hurricane season and they have backup plans in place in a worst-case scenario. Its been 90 years since a major hur ricane made a direct hit on Tampa. The last to strike Floridas west coast was Hurricane Charley, a Category 4 pack ing 150 mph winds. The Aug. 13, 2004, storm was small yet powerful and was initially forecast to strike the Tampa Bay area before it turned and slammed Port Charlotte, about 100 miles south. National Hurricane Center computer models predicted Isaac would become a hurricane over the next few days, meaning maximum winds must be at least 74 mph (120 kph). Some models had the storm striking Florida, including the Tampa Bay area, after moving across Cuba or the Bahamas as early as Sunday morning. Jeff Masters, director of meteorology at Weatherunderground.com, said longrange storm track predictions five days in advance are notoriously inaccurate, often off an average of 260 miles (418 kilome ters). But Masters said the climate situ ation has improved chances that Florida could be in the systems sights during the GOP event that runs Monday through Thursday. It would take a perfect storm of a sce nario where a bunch of factors all conspire together, Masters said. But we definitely have to watch this one. At 8 p.m. Tuesday, Isaac had maximum sustained winds near 40 mph (64 kph) but was expected to strengthen. The storm was about 435 miles (700 kilometers) east of Guadeloupe and was moving west near 17 mph (28 kph). A hurricane hunter plane confirmed the storm had strengthened. GOP and state officials have contin gency plans in place if the storm makes its way to Tampa, including an evacu ation in a worst-case scenario. About 70,000 delegates, party officials, journal ists, protesters and others are expected for the convention that culminates in the nomination of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for president and Wisconsin U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan for vice president. Were monitoring it, said James Davis, communications director for the Republican National Convention. Were in close touch with all the federal, state and local agencies. Were focused on preparing still and having a great event starting on Monday. A four-day mock hurricane drill was held in May featuring a pretend major storm striking the Tampa area during the second day of the convention. Under that scenario, planners canceled. A major hurricane is a Category 3 or above with winds at least 111 mph (170 kph) and devastating damage can occur. At this point, were prepared for everything, said Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor on Tuesday. Weve certainly factored that into our plans. Forecasters say that fortunately for Tampa, most Gulf storms emerge earlier or later in the hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to Nov. 30. Florida, historically the nations top target for tropical systems, has not been hit by a major hurricane since Wilma in 2005. The new storms potential threat comes just as South Floridians are mark ing the 20th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, a Category 5 monster that resulted in 26 direct deaths and caused some $26.5 billion in damage when it came ashore south of Miami on Aug. 24, 1992. Tropical Storm Isaac on GOP convention radar Antonia Robinson (left), the Foundation for the Florida Gateway College Take Stock in Children program assistant, receives a check for $226.35 from Takesha Armstrong, a Take Stock in children graduate and educational para professional at Richardson Middle School. The money was raised through a bake sale held at Publix Supermarket on Aug. 18. The foun dation will match the money raised through the Florida Prepaid Education Foundation for a total of $452.70. This is Armstrongs third time raising money for the organization. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Taking stock Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday flatly rejected any talk of expanding the number of early-voting days in the state prior to this years presidential election despite a federal court ruling that a new state law could hurt minority par ticipation. And the Republican governor went further, hinting that he may take action against the lone local election supervisor who is not going along with a plan to offer only eight days of early voting instead of at least 12 days. State officials are scrambling to come up with an early-voting proposal that would be acceptable to a federal court after a three-judge panel last week refused to let new restrictions take effect in five counties covered by federal voting laws. Democratic politicians and civil rights groups have called on Scott to order all counties to return to at least 12 days of early voting, as it was in 2008 when President Barack Obama won the state. But Scott is instead trying to get the five counties to go along with a plan to offer 12 hours of early voting each day over an eight-day period. The court said in its ruling that it would likely approve such a plan. The one holdout, however, is Monroe County, where the Republican elections supervisor says that reducing the number of actual early-voting days could be dis criminatory. Scott contends that supervisors have a duty under state law to implement the new system. In a statement, he said that he would take all necessary and appropriate action to ensure that the laws are faithfully executed and that supervisors are fulfilling their duties. The governor on Tuesday sidestepped any direct questions about whether he would remove Monroe County Supervisor Harry Sawyer. But he did tell reporters that he was going to make sure that the five counties offer 96 hours of early vot ing, the number of hours offered under the old law which the federal panel said would likely pass muster. The new law gives election supervisors the ability to go down to as low as 48 hours. In 2003, then-Gov. Jeb Bush removed then-Broward County elections supervi sor Miriam Oliphant from office follow ing a botched election and reports of incompetence. Sawyer, who has been supervisor for 24 years, called any reports of his remov al bewildering. He said hes following the law since a federal court still has not signed off on new early-voting restric tions as part of the preclearance process required under federal law. This is a state of opinion and it has nothing to do with anything Im doing or not doing as the law would require, Sawyer said. Once the district court in D.C. preclears whatever the plan is I will follow it. House Democratic Leader Ron Saunders, D-Key West, said Sawyer was supported by members of both parties in Monroe County and he urged the gov ernor to clarify or retract any remarks that would suggest he would remove the supervisor. Harry Sawyer is doing his job, hes elected by the people, Saunders said. Hes well within his rights. Saunders suggested that Scott should focus more on ongoing allegations of absentee ballot fraud that have surfaced in Miami-Dade County elections instead of pressuring a duly-elected elections supervisor. Sen. Arthenia Joyner, D-Tampa, and one of those pushing Scott to extend early voting, also criticized Scott for rejecting her request and repeated past charges that the effort to curtail early voting was aimed at tamping down black voter turnout in the coming presidential election. Its un-American and I am ashamed of him and what hes doing to my people, Joyner said. The Republican-controlled Legislature last year passed the law reducing the number of early-voting days to eight days from as many as 14 days. The law allowed the same number of hours, but it eliminated early voting on the Sunday before Election Day. The changes have not taken effect in Collier, Hardee, Hendry, Hillsborough and Monroe because these counties are covered by Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 due to a past history of discrimination. Any changes in voting procedures in these counties must be pre-cleared by either the Department of Justice or a federal court. The ruling raises the prospect of hav ing longer early-voting periods in places such Tampa than in urban areas such as Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando during the November election. Gov. says no to more days for early voting in Florida

I n more than two decades of covering and writing about U.S. politics, I have witnessed too many inane comments from uneducated politicians. But the igno-rance of a remark by Missouri Republican Rep. Todd Akin tops them all. It shows the man’s understanding of human biology is seriously lacking, his respect for women is so low as to have sunk beneath Middle Earth and his political notions so ill-formed as to be dangerous. He is an uneducat-ed ideologue unfit to serve in the U.S. House or in the U.S. Senate, for which he is now a candidate. Akin was asked by the host of a TV public affairs show Sunday whether he supported abortion rights for women who become pregnant as a result of rape. His response: “From what I understand from doc-tors, that’s really rare. ... If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume maybe that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punish-ment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.” Let’s parse out this incredibly erroneous, insensitive string of words. First, Akin says pregnancy from rape is “really rare.” According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, it’s not rare at all. In fact, the center reports an estimated 25,000 American women become pregnant as a result of rape each year. In addition, the center reports 12 percent of women experience sexual assault during their lifetimes and almost 5 percent of those assaults result in pregnancy. It speaks to Akin’s fatuousness that he would make a public statement on a topic about which he knows little. It is quite scary that Akin has a vote in Congress to legislate on this issue. It is embarrass-ing that voters in Missouri’s 2nd Congressional District would grant federal legisla-tive powers to a person this extreme and ill-informed. To be fair, Akin’s own website proudly states he earned a B.S. degree in management engineering from Worcester (Mass.) Polytechnic Institute. So perhaps he could speak more intelligently on engineer-ing topics. But his comments on abortion show he should keep his mouth shut on this issue. Let’s move on to the next sentence. First, there’s his use of the term “legitimate rape.” What kind of qualifier is that? Does that mean there’s “ille-gitimate” rape? Sure, every long once in a while a news story is reported in which it turns out a woman has unjust-ly accused a man of rape. But does that justify the use of the term “legitimate” rape, which Akin throws around as if to say most rapes are not legitimate? Then there’s the stunner, in which Akin announces a completely new medical find-ing (which does not, of course, exist) that women who have been raped have some kind of magic wand they can wave to “shut that whole thing down.” One must assume he means raped women can prevent themselves from becoming pregnant. This statement is so outlandish as to be laughable. The center recommends women rape victims should be given access to emergency contraception within 72 hours of an attack so they can pre-vent pregnancy. Akin wants to ban such emergency contra-ception. Akin is challenging Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. His immoderate comments may be just what she needs to pull ahead of her rival, who had an 11-point lead in a Survey USA poll as of Aug. 11. At the time, she only held 80 percent of the Democratic base, while he held 91 percent of the Republican base. Akin’s display of ignorance will do more to energize McCaskill’s base than any-thing McCaskill could have imagined. She is a flawed can-didate with problems of her own. But she is no idiot. Now Missouri voters have a clearer picture of whether the same can be said of Akin. Rapemeansrape ONE OPINION Rep.

Q The Washington Times Q Scripps Howard News Service OPINION Wednesday, August 22, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AOPINION ANOTHER VIEW A fter 80 years, the Augusta National Golf Club has decided that women are not a passing fad and, since they’re likely to be around a while, it might not be such a bad idea to add some to the membership roster. The club took in its first black member in 1990. Seeing that the fairways didn’t spontane-ously combust and the greens become sinkholes, the mem-bers apparently felt it safe to begin contemplating the pres-ence of women. It might have happened sooner, except that in 2002 Martha Burk, then the presi-dent of a heretofore obscure National Council of Women’s Organizations, made the absence of women members a public issue just as the club was preparing for its famed Masters tournament. The intensely private club was probably headed toward accepting a woman member or two, although its Byzantine process of membership by con-sensus -one doesn’t apply; one is invited -moves at a glacial pace. The process apparently ground to a halt because the club chairman -the genial, well-liked Hootie Johnson -was determined that neither sponsor boycotts nor threats of dem-onstrations and bad publicity would force the club to change its ways. And the club didn’t. Burk’s protests dwindled to a handful of people when Johnson retired in 2006 and Billy Payne took over as chairman. About that time, the names of then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina finan-cier Darla Moore were floated as possible members. Both women accepted, and on Monday the club took the rare step of announcing publicly that they had. “This is a joyous occasion,” Payne said. Their acceptance was well received in the world of profes-sional golf, with congratulations coming from such greats as Gary Player and Tiger Woods. Congratulations are in order to Rice and Moore. May they have nothing but good lies and short putts -and may the green jackets look better on them than they do on the men. H ealth care was supposed to be President Obama’s issue in 2012. The 2009 Obamacare law was hailed as his signature legislative achieve-ment, but it’s never been popu-lar. Its most onerous provisions were timed to kick in after the election specifically to avoid damaging the re-election effort. For months, the Obama cam-paign tried to negate the issue. It spent a great deal of energy seeking to inoculate itself from Mitt Romney’s attacks by claim-ing the Massachusetts health care law passed when Mr. Romney was governor was “just like Obamacare.” Some of Mr. Obama’s supporters claimed to be thrilled by Mr. Romney’s selection of Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his running mate. The spin was that Mr. Ryan’s budget plan provided the necessary contrast to Obamacare to enable Democrats to move to the offensive. Pro-Obama commentators resurrected the allegation that the Ryan plan would “end Medicare as we know it,” a charge the nonpar-tisan fact checkers at Politifact dubbed the “lie of the year” in December 2011. Meanwhile, Republicans highlighted the $716 billion that Obamacare cuts from Medicare, a fact affirmed by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. This cut was the talking point that stuck. Obamacare defenders scoff at the idea that the IPAB’s decisions would have fatal con-sequences for seniors, but the panel has been given an extraor-dinary and perhaps unconsti-tutional degree of power. Its proposals automatically become law unless Congress counters it with another plan. The president is carrying a “signature legislative achieve-ment” he cannot discuss while being forced to defend imple-menting hundreds of billions of dollars in Medicare cuts by death panel. By November, Mr. Obama may find his campaign on life support. L ittle wonder that Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican nomi-nee to represent Missouri in the U.S. Senate, is trying to back away from his comments about abortion and rape. So igno-rant and offensive were his remarks that members of Mr. Akin’s own party, including its presidential standard-bearer, issued strong condemnations, though it took them a while to get strong enough. Mr. Akin was utterly unconvincing in explaining that he “misspoke.” It is scary that someone so ill-informed could hold elec-tive office or have a chance of becoming a senator. The comments, first aired Sunday on St. Louis’s KTVI-TV, bear repeating, if only to underscore Mr. Akin’s alarm-ing worldview. Responding to a question about whether he would ease his opposition to abortion to allow exceptions for women who have been raped, the six-term congress-man said, “It seems to me, first of all, from what I under-stand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” It’s idiotic, to borrow the phrase of GOP strategist Mike Murphy, to say — citing doc-tors, no less — that women’s bodies contain some hidden defenses that can kick in to prevent pregnancies. To suggest there are different categories of rape — some real and awful and others that are not — is loathsome. Even from someone who would liken student loans to Stage 3 cancer, as Mr. Akin once did, the comment was stunning in its stupidity and insensitivity. At first, Mr. Akin issued a statement saying that he “mis-spoke” and his “off-the-cuff remarks” didn’t “reflect the deep empathy I hold for the thousands of women who are raped and abused every year.” The explanation was hard to square with the fact that oppo-sition to abortion has been a core tenet of his time in office — the issue isn’t new to him, in other words — and that he expounded on his thoughts during a lengthy interview with KTVI’s Charles Jaco. Unfortunately, Mr. Akin’s remarks are not the first, nor are they likely to be the last, in a long-running effort to downplay the horror of rape as a way to restrict access to abortion. Garance Franke-Ruta of the Atlantic catalogued how anti-abortion politicians, since at least 1988, have used the canard of “legitimate rape” or “assault rape” in efforts to restrict and outlaw abortions. What they’re really saying is that not all rape victims are victims, and so we shouldn’t worry if they have to deal with unwanted pregnancy. One example of this effort to minimize rape came ear-lier this year when Congress considered whether to rewrite the rape exception in fed-eral abortion funding bans by inserting the phrase “forcible rape,” words eerily similar to Mr. Akin’s note of “legitimate rape.” Among the bill’s 227 co-sponsors was Rep. Paul Ryan, now Mitt Romney’s run-ning mate. The language was stripped from the bill before it won final House approval, but even then, it contained such onerous provisions that it never made it to the Senate floor. Let’s hope the same will be said for Mr. Akin and his unacceptable views. Augusta decides women are OK Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service.

according to Kings report. The initial complaint that Jarvis had misused the databases was filed by one of Jarvis for mer employees, former Assistant State Attorney Michael J. San Filippo. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigated the complaint. Following the FDLEs examination of the accusations and after Jarvis was interviewed by FDLE, Mr. Jarvis then requested the governor to appoint an outside prosecu tor to review the results of the FDLE investigation, King wrote. King was assigned to the case by an executive order from the governor and immediately pre pared it for presentation to a grand jury in Leon County. FDLE said Jarvis mis used the Driver and Vehicle Information Database (DAVID), the Florida Crime Information Center (FCIC), and the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) databases. DAVID provides an individuals drivers license number, address, date of birth and current drivers license photograph. The FCIC and the NCIC pro vides a report on an indi viduals arrest and convic tion record in Florida or elsewhere in the country. Individuals authorized to use the database must pass a test that shows they understand the legal limita tions for which the database can be used. FDLE audited the database searches from Jarvis office and noted sev eral misuses of the system. We have found evidence that Mr. Jarvis has regu larly, and repeatedly, used these databases, particu larly DAVID, for purposes that were either purely personal in nature, or not for a proper criminal jus tice function, King said. These misuses of the data bases fall into three broad categories: some that are clearly political, some that can only be described as curiosity and those related to Mr. Jarvis family. There is a fourth group for which no legitimate purpose can be found. In the FDLE report of improper political search es, it said Jarvis ran improper background inves tigations on Michael J. San Filippo, a former assistant state attorney who worked for Jarvis and declared he would run against him for the Democratic nomination. The report said he also ran improper checks on San Filippos wife. Others FDLE listed as improper searches for polit ical reasons include Jeff Siegmeister, a Republican running for state attorney, and Siegmeisters wife. It is our conclusion that Mr. Jarvis actions in run ning both the San Filippos and the Siegmeisters through the databases was solely related to the fact Mr. San Filippo and Mr. Siegmeister were opposing him for election as state attorney, King said. Those FDLE listed as non-prosecution related searches conducted improperly by Jarvis inclued the names of Mr. L.J. Johnson of Lake City, a man who filed a civil suit against Jarvis over a public records dispute; attorney David Gibbs, who represented one of Jarvis former employees who filed a lawsuit against Jarvis; attorney Gregory Beauchamp, who repre sented the city of Cross City in a bond validation action that Jarvis office had involvement with the process; and Lake Citys Dekoven Koby Adams, a legislative aide to a state representative. FDLE chronicled what it called improper fam ily member searches by Jarvis, as well. These included improper back ground checks on his wife, his daughter and his sonin-law through the DAVID database on multiple occa sions. He also ran a back ground check on himself, FDLE reported. In the conclusion, King wrote, We have found no evidence that Mr. Jarvis used the information he obtained in any search in a way that harmed the per son searched, or that ben efitted himself. However, it is clear that Mr. Jarvis made repeated searches of various persons in clear violation of the user agree ments he had signed. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE WEDNESDAY AUGUST 22, 2012 6A TD Bank, N.A. | 2012 Visa U.S.A.

Both agen cies are assisting with the investigation. The FDLE is conducting a follow inves tigation on information provided by witnesses and other physical evidence. The officers involved in the shooting incident were placed on paid administra tive leave, according to LCPD.

Jordan said the process to have a replacement can didate added to the ballot is directed by the state Department of Elections. Jordan did not say how many potential candidates the Democratic Executive Party Committees will look at before the decision is made to select a finalist. Local Democrats are working now to identify a candidate, she said. DEMOCRATS: Replacement Continued From Page 1A SHOOTING: Man dies Continued From Page 1A JARVIS: Confidential databases an area of concern for special prosecutor Continued From Page 1A Associated Press KEY WEST Diana Nyad ended her fourth attempt to swim across the Straits of Florida on Tuesday, her decades-old dream thwarted, more than anything else, by jellyfish. Storms brewing around her and repeated jellyfish stings forced her out of the water at 12:55 a.m., her crew said. She traveled by boat close to a rocky shoreline in Key West on Tuesday afternoon, just over 72 hours after setting out from Cuba. She made a final short swim to a waiting crowd. Ive been dreaming of this crossing for 35 years now and tried it four times. And should I say that theres no disappoint ment? No, she said. Im not going to get that moment I dreamed of for so long. Nyad turns 63 on Wednesday and, all told, logged 41 hours and 45 minutes of swim time. Her team acknowledged at 8 a.m. that she had to be pulled from the water, but said it had been about 20 min utes earlier, not nearly seven hours earlier as was the case. She also spent time out of the water during a stormy Sunday night, though that was not acknowledged until Tuesday afternoon. Under rules set by the World Open Waters Swimming Association, she could emerge from the water and preserve her chance at a record if her life was in danger. All of that was made moot by the fact that she didnt finish. Her lips swollen from jellyfish stings, she appeared weary as she was helped up from the water at her arrival in Key West, though she insisted her muscles werent even sore. She was given asthma inhalers, oxygen and an intravenous drip, mostly out of sight of the gathering crowd. She all but ruled out a fifth try at attempt ing the crossing, though she also had ruled out a fourth one after failing last year. Im not a quitter, but the sport and this particular ocean are different than they used to be, she said. These jellyfish are prolific. And, you know what? To me, theres no joy in that. She added: This isnt swimming. Its like some Navy SEAL. Nyad plunged into the water Saturday afternoon in Havana and lasted longer and made it further than on her previous attempts, her team said. She first tried the swim in 1978, in a shark cage. She tried twice last year, without a shark cage, but again and again the record eluded her. Monday night proved the most chal lenging of all for Nyad, with team mem bers fending off sharks, waves crashing in stormy weather, jellyfish sting after sting, and Nyad fighting off a lowered body tem perature and the threat of hypothermia. Instead of getting hit with one doozy they got hit with three, said Vanessa Linsley, a member of Nyads team. They got hit with the weather, they got hit with the jellyfish and they got hit with the sharks. Nyad had been training for three years for the attempt. She was accompanied by a support team in boats, and a kayak-borne apparatus shadowing her to keep sharks at bay by generating a faint electric field. A team of handlers was on alert to dive in and distract any sharks that made it through. She took periodic short breaks to rest, hydrate and eat high-energy foods such as peanut butter. She said she had been reduced to tears several times and expected more to flow but turned reflec tive after arriving in Key West. I didnt get that final moment, but what a magnificent experience it all was, she said. Endurance swimmer Diana Nyad swims in the Florida Straits between Cuba and the Florida Keys Monday. Nyad failed in a fourth attempt to complete the swim. Storms, stings push Nyad to end Cuba-to-Fla. swim Associated Press

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comL ook anywhere on the defense and there’s a host of playmakers that can turn a game around. It’s hard to point out just one or two guys that lead the team, but coach Brian Allen feels that they don’t get much better than Felix Woods. The senior wracked up more than 70 tackles last season, but he’s not lowering his goals for his senior campaign. “I want more than 110 tackles,” he said. “But the big goal is to win state.” Just like many of the Tigers, when asked a question about individual expectations, Woods quickly turned it back onto a team-first mentality. “We play as a team,” Wood said. “We trust the guys around us to do our assignments.” Woods said faith helps him as a player and he has strong convictions that he’ll continue to improve. “I try to keep God first,” he said. “I know I have things to work on, but I just have to keep learning.” With most of the starters returning this season, Woods feels that the Tigers can be even better than last year’s unit that didn’t allow a touchdown over a four-game stretch. “We’re going to be looking for shutouts,” Woods said. “It’s very realistic. We had five games where we held teams to field goals.” Woods is another player that could end up signing with a Divison-I program at the end of the season. He’s already getting looks from around the country. “Florida International, Troy, Georgia Southern, The Citadel and Jacksonville State are all looking at me,” he said. Still, like many of his teammates, his focus is on 2012. “I’m worrying about all that after high school,” he said. And that attitude comes from the top starting with head coach Brian Allen. “He makes us want to be a better person period,” Woods said. “He wants what’s best for us and doesn’t allow us to take plays off. When I first got here, I’d do that, but now I’m working.” And as is the theme with the Tigers, Woods is ready for week 2. “I’m ready for Gainesville,” he said. “They caught us early and have been steady with the talk. There’s hype and now we have to deliver.” Woods knows that Columbia has a mark on its back, but said that’s not necessarily how he likes it. “I like being the underdog,” Woods said. “That’s not the case, so we have to deliver. We must live up to expectations.” JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Felix Woods has high expectations for th e 2012 football season including a state championship. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort White High’s Tavaris Williams looks to carry the lo ad for the Indians in 2012. Stepping out of the shadowsBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Tavaris Williams has been a main-stay on Fort White’s defense and special teams. Now he is ready to step out of the shadows on offense. Williams is the heir to Fort White’s ever important tailback position. It was the spot held by his brother, Soron Williams, last sea-son. Soron rushed for 951 yards and 12 touchdowns in coach Demetric Jackson’s offense. “As far as running back, you’ve just got to do it,” Williams said. “I used to like defensive back more, but since I have stepped into running back I like that more.” Williams ran the ball 22 times for 199 yards last year. He had an 80-yard touchdown run against Fernandina Beach High, a game in which he finished with 107 yards on six car-ries. “Tavaris has had a great attitude,” Jackson said. “If he realizes his potential and puts forth effort, the sky’s the limit. I have been pleased. All the little things Williams turn to carry the load for Indians’ football. INDIANS continued on 2B Classic rematch for ColumbiaBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comWith a year under his belt, Columbia High head coach Brian Allen will lead the Tigers into a kickoff classic rematch against Santa Fe High on Friday. The Raiders come into “The Jungle” at 7:30 p.m. looking for revenge of last year’s 19-13 loss on their home field. At this time last year, the Tigers were still learning Allen’s system, but were able to pull out the opening win before falling to 0-2 in the regular season. Columbia rebounded from that start, however, and had a playoff run in Allen’s first year. This year, the Tigers want to come out of the gates booming. During last year’s game, the Tigers were outplayed for most of the first half. Columbia used big players in order to score, but were unable to sustain drives. Much of the trouble came up front where the Tigers returned only Laremy Tigers look to make it two in a row over Raiders. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Ronald Timmons breaks free during a run in the Tigers’ 19-13 win against Santa Fe High last season in the kickoff classic. CHS continued on 2B

Williams has the confidence to make his mark carrying the ball in an offense that relies on an outstanding tailback. “I want to be better than my brother, better than all of them,” Williams said. Fort White plays host to Suwannee High at 7:30 p.m. Friday in a kickoff classic game. Tunsil along the offensive line. This year, Columbia returns five across. After trailing early, Ronald Timmons broke an 80-yard run to tie the game at 7-7. A second 80-yard play, this time from Trey Marshall, tied the game at 13-13 head-ing into the half. Former Tiger, Nigel Atkinson would lead the Tigers on a game-winning drive starting with 5:19 remaining in the game. A “WildTiger” run of 34 yards was the difference. This year, Columbia hopes to take over early in the contest and not rely on big plays. CHS: Tigers look to repeat in classic Continued From Page 1B

DEAR ABBY: My friend was at a local event, a child’s graduation. There was a woman whose rear end was exposed sitting in the row ahead. Several people took pictures and posted them on Facebook. My concern is for the woman’s family. My friend couldn’t think of an easy way to tell her. My ques-tion is, how do you tactfully tell someone about her (or his) exposed buttocks without offending the per-son? -JUST ASKING IN ILLINOIS DEAR JUST ASKING: The person who designed low-rise pants for women, frankly, should be taken to the stocks for public pun-ishment. They flatter no one, particularly when the wearer bends or sits. If it’s not the flesh dropping over the waistband, it’s the Great Rift Valley visible from the rear. Robert Burns, a Scottish poet, wrote in 1786 (I am paraphrasing) that if some power would give us the gift to see ourselves as others see us, it would free us from “many a blunder”! How right he was. Had your friend informed the woman in the row ahead that her pants had slipped so low that people were photographing the view, she probably would have been less offended than embarrassed. The message should have been conveyed QUIETLY by another woman if one felt enough compassion to do it. DEAR ABBY: I was married for 22 years. My husband was verbally, mentally and emotionally abusive to me. I took it for my kids’ sake. My daughter recently had a son, and my ex wants nothing to do with him. He says if we don’t name the baby after him, the baby doesn’t need him in his life. My heart hurts for my grandson. My daughter is not with the baby’s daddy. All the baby has is my daughter, my son and me. I don’t know how a grandparent can’t want to be a part of an innocent baby’s life. My ex is 45 and living with a 23-year-old. I just want him to at least give the baby a chance to know who his grandfather is. If there is no love there when they meet, we won’t pursue a relationship. He is upset with me. I don’t know why, because he’s the one who asked for the divorce. What do you think about this? -CONFUSED IN PHOENIX DEAR CONFUSED: Your ex-husband may be upset with you because he feels some guilt about the divorce, and rather than accept it, he is blaming you for it. If you think this baby might somehow smooth over the years of abuse you experienced from him, please forget it. It is perfectly logical that your daughter wouldn’t want to name her child for him after witnessing what he put you through for so many years -so please don’t let her be coerced into it. Because your ex is the kind of person he is, it would be better for all of you if the little boy DOESN’T get to know him. You married a self-centered, selfish, control-ling individual. Consider yourself lucky that he’s not pushing for involvement, because if that happens he will continue to treat all of you exactly the way he used to. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): There is money to be made. Posturing your position will make a dif-ference. Don’t allow a personal matter to stand in your way professionally. Your quick and clever way of expressing who you are will draw attention if you are networking or social-izing. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Draw the line and stop anyone trying to take advantage of you. Time is money, and if you have something to offer, make sure you get something in return. Don’t be fooled by a fast-talking salesperson looking to make a quick buck. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Have confidence in your abilities. You have just as much to offer as anyone else. Use your imagination and you will find a way to earn more money. Love is in the stars and expressing your inten-tions will lead to a memo-rable event. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Avoid being railroaded into doing something because you want to please someone. A problem with a friend or relative can lead to uncertainty and changes that are difficult to fix. Compromise but make sure everyone else involved is making the same contribution. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Change can help regener-ate you mentally, physi-cally and emotionally. Experience new places and people. Before long, you will be coming up with ideas and plans for the future that will help you turn your dreams into a possibility. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Changes made at home and to the way you spend your money will help you gain greater financial security. Getting together with friends or relatives will confirm that you are on the right track and help give you what you need to continue. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Look at the big pic-ture before making a final decision. Play it safe and take baby steps. You will excel if you listen to your inner voice. Good fortune will be yours if you make choices based on facts and overall costs. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Consider what you want, what you need and how you can get the ball rolling. Offer what you can in order to get the favors you need to reach your goals. Don’t trust someone making unreal-istic promises. Keep your emotions in check. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Do something nice for someone. You can make alterations to your living quarters, but make sure you get the go-ahead from anyone who may be inconvenienced by your plans. An old friend or lover will influence a decision you must make. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Don’t let added responsibilities get you down. Take care of busi-ness and keep moving in a positive direction. Love is in the stars, and planning a fun evening will enhance your personal life. An investment you hear about should be considered. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Keep your emotions out of any conversation or decision you make. Take a pass if what you are asked to do conflicts with your plans. Focus on your financial situation and your health. Ask someone you love for help. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A moneymaking partnership should be considered. Whether it’s a personal or professional change you want to make, sharing the expenses and responsibilities with some-one willing to work as hard as you will alleviate stress. Love is on the rise. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Wednesday, August 22, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 1C Civil War anniversary angst, 4C By HANNAH O. BROWN hbrown@lakecityreporter.com A group of ladies at the LifeStyle Enrichment Center, a non-profit senior center in Lake City, are making gifts by hand and donating them to causes internationally and on a local level. Around 10 seniors are members of the ongoing sewing class. The group meets in a corner room at the LEC, the walls are organized with cubbies full of beautiful fabric palettes. Thread spools jut out in one section while different shades and textures of yarn are grouped in another. A large table sits in the center with all of the chairs facing toward the center. The group make quilts, sew and crochet together at the table several times a week. It takes some work, Public relations and mar keting representative Velda Steele said. They come with some skills, she said. They are learning also. They have classes right here on site. Steele said a great deal of materials are donated to the center. The ladies in the group work together to make creations large and small. They have fun doing those things, they really do, Steele said. It takes up a lot of time, they mingle, it helps raise their self-esteem and it gives them a place to come to everyday. Many of the products cre ated are donated to outside organizations. Lap robes have been given to nurs ing homes, baby caps have been sent to Lake Shore Hospital, baby blankets were shipped to Kenya. One hundred caps and 50 pairs of socks were hand made by the group and sent to Joplin, Missouri when a tornado tore through the town in 2011. I know its very, very nuturing, that they come together, Steele said. They share everything, they laugh about it too. Yes, they probably will talk about their high blood pres sure pill or whats the latest drug, the newest drug on the market. But they will also share information for their skills, their family, their grandchildren, spiri tual stuff. Hand-crafted prod ucts are also sold at the Heirloom Gift Shoppe inside the LEC. The gift shop has a huge variety of products from jewelry to hand-painted bird feed ers. Quilts are also for sale. A large rosy-colored quilt Local seniors quilt for fellowship, good causes By LINDA A. JOHNSON AP Business Writer TRENTON, N.J. If brand-name prescription medicines cost you as lit tle as generic pills, which would you choose? A few drugmakers are betting Americans will stick with the name they know. Theyve begun offer ing U.S. patients coupons to reduce copayments on brand-name medicines and compete with new generic versions of the drugs. The medicines include staples in the American medicine cabinet cholesterol fighter Lipitor, blood thin ner Plavix and blood pres sure drug Diovan along with drugs for depression and breast cancer. Pfizer Inc. tested the new trend last year and now offers copay coupons that can bring insured patients six of its medicines for as little as $4 a month each. That includes Lipitor, which was taken by more than 3.5 million Americans until generic competition arrived last Nov. 30. Experts predict more drugmakers will do the same for some of their big sellers, as the companies weather big revenue drops from an unprecedented wave of top-selling drugs whose patents are expir ing. The trend is the lat est attempt by drugmak ers to hold onto business at a time when they are increasingly under siege. Drug companies includ ing Pfizer, Merck & Co. and Bristol Myers-Squibb Co. are squeezed by rising research costs, the weak global economy and pres sure from Europe, China and elsewhere to reduce drug prices. So, theyre trying a new tactic to temporarily slow the loss of billions of dol lars in sales to new generic competition. On a big drug, every day that you can delay the sales drop is a happy day at the drug company, says Erik Gordon, a pro fessor at the University of Michigans Ross School of Business who follows the drug industry. Developing drugs is very expensive. It requires up to a decade of laboratory research and then patient testing, costing $1 billion or more, to win government approval to sell a drug. In return, the drugs maker gets the exclusive right to sell the drug for about 10 to 15 years, until the pat ent expires. That allows the companies to recoup those costs and hopefully turn a profit. After that, generic copy cats sold by other compa nies flood the market, cost ing just a fraction of the brand-name drugs price, even though theyre chemi cally identical. Often, one generic drug maker has the exclusive right to sell its copycat ver sion for the first six months after the branded drugs patent expires. In those cases, the generics price is only about 25 percent lower than for the branded drug. Other times, there are mul tiple generics right away. Either way, once several generics are on sale, their prices usually plummet to about 90 percent below the brand-name price. Nearly all patients then switch to a generic. Lipitor, once the worlds top-selling drug, provides a window into the use of coupons. A months supply of brand-name Lipitor costs about costs about $175 with out insurance. For insured patients, the copayment is typically $25 to $50, well above the average copay ment of about $10 a month for most generic drugs. Under Pfizers Lipitor For You coupon program, Pfizer absorbs up to $75 of the patients out-of-pocket cost. Insured patients pay only $4 a month, unless their copayment is high er than $79 a month. Uninsured patients get the $75 off each prescription and then pay the remaining $100 or so. While the deal slashes Pfizers profit, the company still makes more money than it would if all its custom ers defected from Lipitor to a generic. Ian Read, CEO of New York-based Pfizer, recently said the strategy on Lipitor alone brought the company hundreds of millions of dollars in extra profit. The coupons only work with private insurance, though. Patients with Medicare or other govern ment health insurance are barred from using them. Not surprisingly, com mercial insurers dont like the coupons, because their share of the cost for a brandname drug is much higher New coupons aim to keep people off generic drugs By ALICIA CHANG AP Science Writer LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif. For one family, an exotic summer getaway means living on Mars. Martian time, that is. Since the landing of NASAs newest Mars rover, flight director David Ohs family has taken the unusu al step of tagging along as he leaves Earth time behind and syncs his body clock with the red planet. Every mission to Mars, a small army of scientists and engineers reports to duty on Mars time for the first three months. But its almost unheard of for an entire family to flip their orderly lives upside down, shifting to what amounts to a time zone change a day. Intrigued about abiding by extraterrestrial time, Ohs wife, Bryn, could not pass up the chance to take their kids 13-year-old Braden, 10-year-old Ashlyn and 8-year-old Devyn on a Martian adventure from their home near the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory where the Curiosity rover was built. We all feel a little sleepy, a little jet-lagged all day long, but everyone is doing great, Bryn Oh said, two weeks into the experiment. Days on Mars last a tad longer. Earth rotates on its axis once every 24 hours the definition of a day. Neighbor Mars spins more lazily. Days there known as sols last 39 minutes and 35 seconds longer than on Earth. The difference may not seem like much each day, but it adds up. To stay in lockstep, near ly 800 people on the $2.5 billion project have surren dered to the Martian cycle of light and dark. In the simplest sense, each day slides forward 40 minutes. That results in wacky work, sleep and eating schedules. Many say it feels like per petual jet lag. The Oh family broke in slowly. A sign on their front door warns: On Mars Time: Flight Director Asleep. Come Back Later. Days before Curiositys Aug. 5 touchdown, the chil Like NASA rover, family switches over to Mars time ASSOCIATED PRESS David Oh, a flight director of NASAs Mars mission (far left) and his family have breakfast at 3 pm at their home in La Canada Flintridge, Calif. The Oh family has been living on Mars time and following an odd schedule ever since the NASA rover Curiosity landed in an ancient Martian crater on Aug. 5.

COURTESY The quilting, sewing and crocheting group at the LifeStyle Enrichment Center donates handmade products to charitable causes as far away as Kenya. is displayed in the LECs lobby with a tag that reads $350. The gifts are sold to help support Columbia County Senior Services. LEC offers a variety of entertainment and edu cational programs. Steele said LEC makes sure the services they offer are afforable for their senior participants. We have funding, we have grants, we have dona tions whereby we help them to pick up the tab, Steele said. We make it very little burden for them. The mission of the cen ter is to promote inde pendence and dignity of seniors, Steele said. We encourage seniors to come here, she said. They will pick up so much more, instead of just stay ing home.

2C LAKE CITY REPORTER ACT2 WEDNESDAY AUGUST 22, 2012 Page Editor: Laura Hampson, 754-0427 By CHARLOTTE FERRELL SMITH Charleston Daily Mail CHARLESTON, W.Va. Bailey Whites request for postcards from through out the United States has resulted in 462 arriving by mail at his Cross Lanes home. Bailey, son of Tracy and Jerry White, loves his country so much that his parents painted a map of the United States on a wall of his bedroom. Postcard collecting began July 5 when his mother posted a request on Facebook: Our 10-yearold son, Bailey, is autistic and absolutely, positively, hands down LOVES the USA. Please help us col lect postcards for him from each and every state! Tracy was surprised by the overwhelming response and Bailey loves the cards. He separates them, counts them and sees who is winning, Tracy said. While Alabama was the first to arrive, most are from West Virginia. Bailey says his favorite is the one with the picture of the state Capitol in Charleston. In order to complete his collection, Bailey needs cards from Idaho, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Aside from post cards, Bailey has also received T-shirts, stickers, magnets and puzzles. It started with postcards and grew from there, said Tracy, a substitute aide for Kanawha County Schools. Baileys father, who is retired from the U.S. Army, is now a mail carrier. Bailey is the youngest of three. His brothers are Nathan Crouch, 18, and Connor White, 12. Collecting postcards has led Bailey to memorize the capital of every state. He loves geography and has even received a few cards from overseas. The mail carrier became so excited when cards arrived from Paris and London that she handdelivered them to the door. Some old postcards have arrived in envelopes, such as the New Jersey card postmarked 1955. Bailey, who was diag nosed with autism at age 5, is a student at Dunbar Intermediate School. Each autistic child is dif ferent, Tracy said. There are five children in his class who are autistic and each is different. Once children get in school, parents help each other. Bailey began talking as a toddler but became nonverbal before he turned 3. Then he would scream and avoid eye contact. His par ents took him to doctors as well as speech and occu pational therapists until he was finally diagnosed at age 4. He is now talkative but sometimes quiet around strangers. Tracy said the Autism Training Center in Huntington has a wonder ful team. She also recom mends Behavioral Health Solutions in St. Albans. She added that his schoolteacher, Jennifer Anderson, is excellent. The hard part is to get word to families about autism, Tracy said. They dont know what to do. She said the cause of autism is unknown but genetics and environment could play a role. Tracy does all she can to get word to other parents about any help that is avail able. She will participate in the High Heel Hike for Autism at 6 p.m. Aug. 24 at the South Charleston Mound to raise funds for the autism socialization program at Childrens Therapy Clinic. Registration is 5 p.m. For more information go to highheelhike.com or call 304-342-9515. Bailey is very good at math, puzzles and memo rizing. He does not like his routine interrupted. The derecho that hit the area on June 29 sent a tree through the roof of the White home. Since that time, Bailey has felt anx ious over any storm. The postcards have cre ated a good diversion. Those who wish to mail more postcards, may send them to: Bailey White, 11 Gatewater Road, Cross Lanes, WV 25313. W.Va. boy collects hundreds of postcards than for a generic pill. Virtually all prescription plans automatically switch patients to a new generic drug the next time they refill their prescription. The plans also move the drug from the copayment level for most brand-name drugs, usually around $25, to their highest copayment level, often $50 to $75 per prescription. The coupons throw a wrench into insurers strat egy of getting as many patients as possible to take generic drugs, which account for about 80 per cent of all prescriptions filled in the U.S. A study late last year by the Pharmaceutical Care Management Association, a trade group for prescrip tion benefit managers, estimated copay coupons could raise prescription drug spending by $32 bil lion over the next decade. Thats adding to over all health care costs, says Robert Zirkelbach, spokes man for another industry group, Americas Health Insurance Plans, and is going to ultimately mean higher premiums for everybody. Many insurers are fight ing back. Express Scripts Holding Co., the largest U.S. pre scription benefit manage ment company, says more than half the insurance plans it services have poli cies requiring patients to pay an extra fee for staying on the brand-name drug. With the advent of coupons, more insurers are likely to institute similar policies, says Everett Neville, head of pharmaceutical strate gies at Express Scripts, which processes prescrip tions for about 100 million Americans. Drugmakers have offered coupons for several years on brand-name drugs that dont have generic competition. Those were meant to attract patients taking a rival brand or just starting treatment for a new condition. The coupons are usually prominent on the drugs official website, and many Internet sites offer coupons for an array of drugs. But in the current decade, drugs with more than $110 billion in annual U.S. sales have patents expiring, according to IMS Health, a huge health-care research firm. So holding onto customers for even a few extra months can mean many millions of dol lars in additional revenue. Consider Lipitor. The cholesterol-lowering medicine had reigned for a decade as the worlds top-selling medicine ever. Sales peaked at $13 billion a year, about half in the U.S. Lipitors U.S. patent was set to expire at the end of November. Well before then, Pfizer began offering coupons giving patients $50 off each Lipitor prescrip tion in hopes of keeping many of them loyal. Pfizer also signed unprecedented deals with dozens of insur ers that lowered their por tion of the cost of Lipitor to what a generic would cost them if they covered only branded Lipitor for six months. That meant both patients and insurers had a big financial incentive to stick with Lipitor for a while. On Nov. 30, two slight ly cheaper generic ver sions hit pharmacies, one from Indias Ranbaxy Laboratories and an authorized generic man ufactured by Pfizer and sold by its partner, gener ic drugmaker Watson Pharmaceuticals Inc., of Parsippany, N.J. Pfizers coupon strat egy worked. The Lipitor For You program, which includes support such as lifestyle coaching, health tips and heart-healthy reci pes, signed up more than 750,000 people. We never expected that, said Albert Bourla, head of the Pfizer unit that sells off-patent medicines. Data from IMS Health show generics grabbed about two-thirds of Lipitors prescriptions within five months a big loss but far less than what would have happened without the coupon program. What Pfizer did was something amazing, says Praful Mehta, senior health care analyst at industry consultant IHS Global Insights in London. By courting patients and accepting lower profit mar gins, they made sure they kept their revenue. On May 30, three more generic Lipitor versions hit U.S. pharmacies. Prices for all the generics plunged overnight to around $15 a month. Pfizer then ended its subsidies to insur ers because it would be too costly to make up the difference between that amount and the $175 price of Lipitor. But the company hasnt given up on retaining some patients. Pfizer extended Lipitor For You through December 2014 and raised its maxi mum subsidy from $50 to $75 per month. That means most insured patients using the coupons still can get Lipitor for less than their monthly copay for a generic drug, unless their insurer charges that extra fee to make up the difference between the brand and generic costs. By the end of June, about 85 percent of Lipitor users had defected to a generic. Without the cou pons, nearly all would have done so. Read, the Pfizer CEO, said the company maintained three times the usual market share a drug maker gets after a generic hits the market. Because pills generally cost only a dime or so to make, Pfizer still profited. It reported about $300 mil lion in U.S. Lipitor sales in the second quarter, down from $1.2 billion a year earlier, plus another $1.1 billion in sales in other countries Pfizer now offers $4 copay coupons for five other drugs: breast cancer pill Aromasin, antidepressant Effexor XR, bipolar dis order treatment Geodon, Revatio for high blood pressure and Caduet, which combines Lipitor with blood pressure medi cine Norvasc. Other companies are following Pfizers lead. Switzerlands Novartis AG is offering coupons to patients with commercial insurance valid through December 2013 for $4-amonth copays on its Diovan and Diovan HCT, with the company covering the next $50 in out-of-pocket costs. Bristol-Myers Squibb, based in New York, began offering copay coupons for stroke-preventing pill Plavix when its U.S. patent expired in mid-May. As the worlds second-bestselling medication, Plavix brought in about $9 billion last year for Bristol and partner Sanofi SA of France. Some companies whose blockbusters are getting many generic rivals at once have chosen not to offer coupons, figuring the rock-bottom prices of those generics would prevent the company from retaining enough patients to make it worth their while. Mercks Singulair asth ma and allergy pill, the worlds 11th-best-selling drug last year at about $5.5 billion, went off patent on Aug. 3. The company said it expects about 90 percent of sales to evaporate within two months. Still, experts say cou pons arent likely a passing fad given the number of drugs coming off patent. Its good for consum ers, because they dont bear the cost and they can stay on the brand, says Les Funtleyder, health care fund manager at private equity fund Poliwogg.

Page Editor: Laura Hampson, 754-0427 LAKE CITY REPORTER ACT2 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 3C&$&7By ZACH SMITHThe News TribuneTACOMA, Wash. — As her emergency medical helicopter began to plum-met after losing power while lifting off with a patient from an Olympia hospital, flight nurse Krista Haugen couldn’t help thinking “not again.” One month earlier, three of her colleagues at Airlift Northwest were killed when their helicopter crashed into Puget Sound near Edmonds. With their memorial services fresh in her mind, Haugen was left to con-sider her own mortality as she fell from the sky. The Oct. 28, 2005, crash from 70 feet above Providence St. Peter Hospital totaled the air-craft, but everyone made it out alive. For Haugen, however, the effects would linger in the form of post-traumatic stress disorder and would eventually lead to the end of her career as a flight nurse. “It proved to be pretty overwhelming,” the 44-year-old Gig Harbor resi-dent recalled last week. “It’s not what the aircraft looks like post-accident; it’s what happens in your mind.” Though PTSD cut short one part of her professional life, it led to the start of another: She helped form the Survivors Network for Air and Surface Medical Transport. Last month, she was honored with the University of Washington Tacoma’s Distinguished Alumni Award for her work as co-founder and chairwoman of the Survivors Network. She earned a master’s degree in nursing from UWT in 1998. “Someone needed to take the lead,” said Jonathan Godfrey, another air ambulance crash survivor who also co-founded the Survivors Network. “She has done a fantastic job.” It started about a year after her accident, when Haugen heard of another air ambulance crash, this time in her home state of Montana. Knowing what the survivors might be going through, she reached out in support. She heard back a few weeks later from flight nurse Megan Hamilton, who was experiencing the same symptoms as Haugen. A year after that, Hamilton reached out to a crash sur-vivor from Kansas, Teresa Pearson. She, too, was feel-ing symptoms of PTSD. The three survivors began to talk. “Even though all of our accidents are very differ-ent, our experiences were very similar,” Haugen said. “It was validating for me because it was not just me feeling this way after a crash.” They discussed the lack of resources for the near-ly 600 air medical crash survivors and decided something had to be done to fill the void. The three connected with Godfrey and formed the Survivors Network in 2009. The network has two main goals: resiliency and health of survivors, and prevention of accidents. The group has done several studies on the effects a crash has on survivors. It also has looked closely at military studies on PTSD. The goal of network mem-bers is to determine how to provide effective shortand long-term care to medical providers who suddenly find themselves feeling powerless, like a helicopter spiraling out of control. “We have to care for our caregivers (they) find it hard to ask for help, because they are the help-ers,” said Haugen, who has learned to manage her PTSD over the years. “If you can help people deal with stress early on, they can return to a life of pur-pose.” Godfrey said personal vigilance of crew members is essential to accident pre-vention, saying even the smallest mistake can result in a crash. The Survivors Network advocates this message by sharing sur-vival stories with the air-ambulance industry. “You can preach that (safety) from an employ-er’s level, but it doesn’t resonate like hearing from someone who has been there,” Godfrey said. Haugen’s traumatic accident happened on a Friday night. The flight took off from the helipad on the roof of Providence St. Peter around 11:30 p.m. with a pilot, two nurses and a patient on board, en route to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. After losing power, the 6,800-pound helicopter clipped the hospital build-ing on the way down and wound up in a small dirt flower bed area its wind-shield and tail broken and all four blades gone. One person on board had minor injuries. While the Survivors Network deals with the dangerous side of air medi-cine, Haugen is quick to point out the necessity of the industry, as reflected by its growth. From 2002 to 2008, the number of emergency med-ical helicopters doubled from 400 to 800, accord-ing to the Association of Air Medical Services. The association attributes the rapid growth to a declin-ing number of emergency centers in community hos-pitals, structural changes in rural health care centers and an aging population. The association estimates nearly 400,000 medi-cal helicopter transports and an additional 150,000 fixed-wing transports occur in the U.S. every year. The industry counted at least 128 fatalities in air ambulance helicopter or fixed-wing airplane acci-dents in the 10-year period that ended with Haugen’s crash. Airlift Northwest has helicopters based in Olympia, Seattle, Arlington and Bellingham. Until 2007, it had a base in Puyallup. Its teams take pride in arriv-ing at emergencies within minutes at sites throughout Western Washington. “Air medicine, especially in a state like Washington, is a vital link,” Haugen said. “If we have injuries that are time-sensitive, air medicine is often their only chance of survival.” She now works part time as an emergency room nurse at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Enumclaw. She looks back fondly on her time as a flight nurse. “I miss it with all of my heart,” Haugen said. “The people in this industry have tremendous passion; it becomes a part of you.” Flight nurses get the support they needASSOCIATED PRESSAir nurses Liza de Guzman, right, and Krista Haugen ins pect medical supplies during a routine check of a Airl ift Northwest medical helicopter at the company’s Puyallup, Wash., base House calls a growing trend among veterinariansBy SUE MANNINGAssociated PressLOS ANGELES — Two kids, two pets, two jobs, too much. That’s how it felt to Erin McCarthy when it came time to drag her cat and puppy to the veterinarian. So she jumped on a grow-ing trend among veterinar-ians and called the vet to her. House calls are a growing trend among the coun-try’s 85,000 veterinarians, said Dr. Bonnie Beaver, a professor at Texas A&M University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and director of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists. It’s been a life-saver for McCarthy, whose cat Duke was so afraid of the vet he had to be tranquil-ized to get there. When he was joined by a Shih Tzu puppy, Pooch, they found a vet who makes house calls, Elisabetta Coletti. McCarthy has made lib-eral use of text-messaging when a house call isn’t nec-essary. “When Pooch ate a peppermint patty last week, she was there with instant advice that got us through the night,” said McCarthy, a teacher in Brooklyn, N.Y. The trend is a return to tradition, Beaver said: “We used to call them farm calls.” While the vet was taking care of cows and horses and other livestock, he would take care of the family dogs and cats too, she said. “House calls used to be the bread and butter part of our business,” agreed Dr. Margarita Abalos, a relief and concierge vet in Los Angeles. Then clinics and hospitals, where X-rays could be taken and surgeries per-formed, became the norm. Now house calls are making a bit of a comeback, at least in bigger cities and higher income areas, said Abalos, who handles sev-eral ranch pigs, goats and sheep in addition to smaller animals. Seeing an animal at its home enhances the bond between vet, pet and owner, the veterinarians say. It starts with less stress, said Lisa Beagan in Severna Park, Md., the Mobile Pet Vet. There is no waiting, driving, loading or getting hot and cranky for kids or pets, she said. “For a lot of animals, it’s stressful to go into a strange hospital with all kinds of smells. Cats and dogs are so smell-sensitive, it’s like getting bombarded with a kaleidoscope of col-ors. At home, they don’t realize they are having an exam or shots,” she said. House calls help vets solve behavior problems, too. Beagan had a client who couldn’t figure out why her cat was peeing outside its box. Seems the litter box was next to the cat’s pet door and when it came through the door and went to the box, the flap on the door would hit it on the behind. Removing the flap solved the problem, she said. Other pet owners may need a reality check. “I had a client who, bless her, had these fat, fat cats. I had been at her for years to deal with their weight. She kept saying they were only getting a certain mea-sured amount of food each day,” Abalos said. So she made a surprise house call. “There were bowls of food everywhere. I caught her red-handed.” Beagan said many of her pets and owners are geriat-ric and have trouble getting in and out of cars, so house calls help them all. dren stayed up until 11:30 p.m. and slept in until 10 a.m. In the beginning, it wasn’t much different from a typical day on summer vacation. As the days wore on, they stayed up later and later, waking up in the afternoon and evening. One day last week, the family ate a 3 p.m. break-fast, 8 p.m. lunch, 2:30 a.m. dinner and 5 a.m. dessert before heading off to bed. To sleep when the sun is out, their bedroom windows are covered with aluminum foil or cloth to keep out any sliver of light. In the hall-way, a handmade calendar keeps track of the days and schedules are written on an oversized mirror. A digital clock in the master bed-room is set to Mars time. Bryn Oh keeps a meticulous spreadsheet updated with her husband’s work hours and the family’s activities. They wear a wire-less device that monitors their steps, calories burned and sleep patterns. When David Oh tells coworkers on Mars time and friends on Earth time about the switch: “Some of them think it’s really cool to have the kids along. Some who worked on other Mars mis-sions have said, ‘You’re crazy.’” Being night owls has its perks: Braden, Ashlyn and Devyn saw their first shoot-ing star. The family went on night hikes in the hills around the neighborhood. They had a late dinner in Hollywood and gawked at street performers on the Walk of Fame with other tourists. They saw a mid-night screening of a zombie film and then went bowl-ing. One night, Bryn Oh took the children biking in an empty parking lot. The youngest shed his training wheels, and for the first time, pedaled around. Of the three, Ashlyn has the most difficulty sticking to the Mars rhythm. She tends to wake up too early and balks at naps. “It’s awesome, but it’s tiring” she said. Braden thrives on the weird hours. What teenag-er doesn’t like staying up as late as possible and having frozen yogurt at midnight? He started a blog detailing the family’s experiences. Earthly sacrifices were made. The family traded a real vacation for a glorified staycation. Dental appoint-ments, harp lessons and play dates were scheduled around when the kids were awake, which was a moving target every day. Still, they managed to host a party a week after the landing, throwing a Mars-themed backyard bar-becue complete with a cake shaped like Gale Crater, Curiosity’s new home, and topped with candles shaped like stars. Bryn Oh said it’s easy to lose track of what day it is. A simple question like “What time is it?” is difficult to answer. Do you mean Earth time? Curiosity time? The time that their bodies think they’re on? For the mission workers, the schedule is also more grueling than in the past. Their work hours tend to whiplash around depend-ing on when orbiting space-craft fly over the rover land-ing site to relay signals to Earth. One shift sends up commands spelling out what Curiosity will do for the day; another pores over the pictures beamed back. To cope, workers talk as if they’re on Mars, salut-ing “Good morning” to one another even though it might be dark outside. Cots are available for siestas. There’s also free ice cream — “a little pick-me-up in the middle of the night,” said mission manager Mike Watkins. Watkins said it’s tough for anyone to stray from Earth time let alone a fam-ily. “It’s something they’re going to remember the rest of their lives,” Watkins said. There have been growing pains. David Oh acci-dentally showed up to work an hour early one time. The youngest tended to get tired at night. The family recently reached a milestone: Staying up through sunrise and sleeping during the day. And just as the children get used to Mars time, they’ll have to reboot later this month when they revert to their terrestrial ways in time for the start of school.

GET 1 Pair FREE E YE EXAM S by Independent Optometrist By EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press JACKSON, Miss. Commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War can be an angst-filled task in Mississippi, with its long history of racial strife and a state flag that still bears the Confederate battle emblem. Well-intentioned Mississippians who work for racial reconciliation say slavery was morally inde fensible. Still, some speak in hushed tones as they confess a certain admiration for the valor of Confederate troops who fought for what was, to them, the hallowed ground of home and coun try. Mississippi has such a troubled past that a lot of people are very sensitive about commemorating or recognizing or remember ing the Civil War because it has such an unpleas ant reference for AfricanAmericans, said David Sansing, who is white and a professor emeritus of his tory at the University of Mississippi. Many Mississippians are reluctant to go back there because they dont want to remind themselves or the African-American people about our sordid past, said Sansing. But it is our past. Black Mississippians express pride that some ancestors were Union sol diers who fought to end slavery, though it took more than a century for the U.S. to dismantle statesanctioned segregation and guarantee voting rights. Sansing is among digni taries traveling to Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg, Md., this week end to dedicate a blue-gray granite marker commemo rating the 11th Mississippi Infantry, which saw 119 members killed, wounded or missing in battle there on Sept. 16-17, 1862. The infantry had almost 1,000 soldiers, including a unit of University of Mississippi students known as the University Greys. Among the speakers set to dedicate the monument Sunday is Bertram HayesDavis, great-great grand son of Confederate presi dent Jefferson Davis. He was recently hired as exec utive director of Beauvoir, the white-columned Biloxi, Miss., mansion that was the final home of his ancestor, who was born in Kentucky and his family moved to Mississippi when he was an infant. The state is taking a decidedly low-key and scholarly approach to com memorating the sesquicen tennial of the Civil War. Re-enactments have taken place at battlefields near Tupelo and are planned soon near Iuka. Lectures, concerts and other gath erings are scheduled over the next several months. Several events are expect ed in 2013 to mark the 1863 siege of Vicksburg, which gave the Union control of the Mississippi River. Mississippi is the last state with a flag that includes the Confederate battle emblem, a red field topped by a blue X with 13 white stars. The symbol has been on the state flag since 1894. In a 2001 state wide election, voters decid ed nearly 2-to-1 to keep it, despite arguments it was racially divisive and tar nishing the states image. With a population thats 38 percent black, Mississippi has elected hundreds of black public officials in the past four decades a change direct ly linked to the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Many people, across racial lines, say its impor tant that Civil War history commemorations not turn into celebrations of a lost cause. Derrick Johnson, state president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said generations have been taught a revi sionist history of the Civil War that ignores or down plays the impact of slavery. He said he wants a full discussion of the war. In mixed racial com pany, people dont want to address race and there is truly an avoidance of con versation when it relates to history and race, Johnson said. Civil War, pre-Civil War, Reconstruction, Redemption, segregation nobody wants to have candid conversations about how the past affects the public policy of this state and how people of differ ent races interact with one another in this state. On Dec. 20, 1860, South Carolina became the first state to secede. Mississippi moved next on Jan. 9, 1861, with a secession declara tion stating, in part: Our position is thoroughly iden tified with the institution of slavery the greatest material interest of the world. Rick Martin is chief of operations for the Vicksburg National Military Park, a 1,800-acre battlefield that sprawls through the citys hills and bluffs. The park attracts about 800,000 people a year from around the world, and Martin said their most common ques tions are Why did the war start? and How could this happen? Depending on what part of the country youre from ... people have been brought up different ways to understand why the Civil War was fought, Martin said. When it comes down to it, you can boil it all down to slavery. That is the root cause of the Civil War. Robert M. Walker, a historian who became Vicksburgs first black mayor in the late 1980s, was instrumental in push ing the park to install a monument that honors all black people free and slave who partici pated in military action in Vicksburg during the Civil War. The monument was added in 2003. Black soldiers fought for the Union in the Battle of Millikens Bend, La., on June 7, 1863, just up the Mississippi River from Vicksburg. The site was a supply and communi cation post for the Union as it worked to conquer Vicksburg during a siege that lasted from May 22, 1863, until the Confederates surrendered on July 4. One thing Im particu larly proud of is that black men who were poorly or sometimes not trained at all took up arms to fight for their own freedom and the freedom of their loved ones, Walker said. The conventional belief was that they were not battle worthy, that they wouldnt fight. After the Battle of Millikens Bend, the black soldiers won praise from military officers. These folks were gen uine, were real freedom fighters, Walker said. Beauvoir, owned by the Sons of Confederate Veterans, honors Davis service as Confederate president. The home was nearly wiped away by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Most of the restoration is finished, and Hayes-Davis said several events will mark the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. This fall, Beauvoir is reopening its presidential library. Hayes-Davis doesnt apologize for his ances tor and doesnt shy away from discussing an era that divided a nation and killed an estimated 620,000 to 750,000 people. History is one of the most important things we have in our country and we need to make sure we understand it, that we know all the reasons things occurred, said HayesDavis, who grew up in Colorado Springs, Colo. I dont think its difficult at all to talk about the War Between the States. For Miss., an angst-filled Civil War anniversary ASSOCIATED PRESS A confederate flag is seen at a tombstone as Bertram Hayes-Davis, great-great grandson of Confederate president Jefferson Davis, walks through the cemetery to his great-great-great grandfathers grave, at Beauvoir House, Jefferson Davis historic home, in Biloxi, Miss.
