MONTGOMERY, Ala. Alabama residents should start monitoring the approach of Tropical Storm Isaac and begin making plans for what they would do if it strikes the states coastline, officials said Saturday. Gov. Robert Bentley announced he was cancelling a trip to the Republican National Convention in Tampa so he can monitor prepa-rations as the storm draws close to the United States. The storm pushed into Cuba on Saturday and was headed north-west along the countrys coast toward the Florida Keys. Florida Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency while officials have asked vacationers to leave the Keys. I will not be leaving the state while there is a danger of a hur-ricane approaching our coast, Bentley said in a statement. I am going to stay in Alabama and will continue to make sure preparaCALL US:(386) 752-1293SUBSCRIBE TOTHE REPORTER:Voice: 755-5445Fax: 752-9400 Opinion ................ 4ABusiness ................ 5AObituaries .............. 6A Advice & Comics ......... 8B Puzzles ................. 2B TODAY IN PEOPLE Neil Armstrong dies at 82.

BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comA father and son team is suspected to have burglarized several local busi-nesses during the past month. Cody Dover, 21, 367 NW Melon Glen was charged with dealing in sto-len property and his father, Samuel Dover Jr., 45, 641 NW Johnson St. was charged with burglary, grand theft, criminal mischief and dealing in stolen property in connection with burglaries that occurred at All Marine, Southern Specialized Trucking, North Florida Welding and North 40 Auto Parts. Both suspects were arrested by the Columbia County Sheriffs Office dep-uties earlier this week. The businesses are located on U.S. Highway 41 north, with the excep-tion of North 40 Auto Parts, which is located U.S. Highway 441. Cody Dover was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $11,000 bond, while Samuel Dover Jr. was booked into jail on $83,000 bond. Burglaries of Southern Specialized Trucking and North Florida Welding were discovered on Aug. 20. The two business sit directly beside each other and share a single fence. Owner of SST, Brian Buchner told police that security cameras stationed on the inside and outside of his proper-ty revealed two subjects enter the busi-ness from the front. He said the sub-jects cut through the property fence. Owner of NFW, Glenn Osteen, told police that burglars stole a John Deere 4x4 Gator from his property. Osteens business was also equipped with secuBrannon chosen as state attorney candidate From staff reportsLake City attorney Bill Brannon will represent the Democratic party and be added to the gen-eral election ballot in the race for Third Judicial Circuit state attorney. The Florida Democratic party made Brannons selection offi-cial on Friday afternoon. He will replace Democratic incumbent Robert L. Skip Jarvis who dropped his re-election campaign last week. Brannon will face Lake City Republican Jeff Siegmeister in Novembers general election. In accordance with rules set forth by the Florida Department of State, Democratic Executive Committees in Columbia, Dixie, Lafayette, Suwannee, Madison, Hamilton and Taylor unanimous-ly selected Brannon to go on the ballot. Brannon formally accepted the candidacy. He will file his official paperwork before the end of the day Tuesday, the state-mandated deadline seven days to fill a vacated position on the ballot. Ive been in this area of law a lot of years and I like it, Brannon said. Ive worked at the public defenders office and Ive worked at the state attorneys office the past two years. The Democratic party needed a candidate and I was encouraged by a lot of people to do this, had a lot of support behind me, and I decided to step up and run. With nine weeks remaining before election day, Brannon admitted his late arrival in the campaign poses a daunting task to get his name and platform in front of voters. I will need a lot of friends and family to help me out there in all seven counties, but the burden is on me to do this, Brannon By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comWorld War II veteran Lionel Capoldo considers himself lucky. On D-Day, he operated a forward magazine aboard a ship that ushered Allied troops onto the beaches of Normandy. He fought in the Philippines, China and Japan. I was in four campaigns, three major, and I never got a scratch, he said. Capoldo, of Lake City, was awarded the French Legion of Honor Medal Tuesday in a ceremony in Boynton Beach. Established in 1802 by Napolon Bonaparte, the medal is Frances highest distinction for both its citizens and foreign-ers. Living WWII veterans who served in French Territory, waters or airspace between 1944 and 1945 are eligible for the award. The ceremony was great, Capoldo said. They played American and French anthems, he said. Gal de Maisonneuve, French Consul General in Miami, pre-sented the medals and a bottle of French champagne to the veterans. The Boynton Veterans Council regularly hosts ceremonies for new medal recipi-ents. A Connecticut native, Capoldo joined the Navy at 17 years old, rather than be drafted into the Army. Family and friends convinced me to join the Navy so I joined the Navy instead of getting drafted, he said. Looking back though, at least the Army soldiers had foxholes to hide out it, Capoldo said. There are no fox holes in the ocean, he said. Ships are a sitting target, especially approaching the beach, he said. Capoldo went to boot camp in Newport, Va. Amphibious training was hard, espe-cially with a retired marine sergeant as a company commander, he said. Capoldo served on a British Navy landing craft flak, staffed by American troops, that helped Allied troops invade Western Europe. We fired rockets and escorted troops, Marines, right up to the beach, Capoldo said. I went from England to France all the way to China, he said. In Japan, he fought in the Battle of Iwo Brannon Samuel Dover France honors Lake City veteran Duo jailed for breaking into several businesses, selling the items.

The modest man, who had people on Earth entranced and awed from almost a quarter-million miles away, died Saturday. He was 82. Armstrong died follow ing complications result ing from cardiovascular procedures, his family said in a statement. It didnt say where he died; he had lived in suburban Cincinnati. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon July 20, 1969, capping the most daring of the 20th centurys scientific expedi tions. His first words after setting foot on the surface are etched in history books and the memories of those who heard them in a live broadcast. Thats one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind, Armstrong said. In those first few moments on the moon, during the climax of a heated space race with the then-Soviet Union, Armstrong stopped in what he called a tender moment and left a patch to commemorate NASA astronauts and Soviet cos monauts who had died in action. It was special and memorable but it was only instantaneous because there was work to do, Armstrong told an Australian television inter viewer this year. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the lunar surface, collect ing samples, conducting experiments and taking photographs. The sights were simply magnificent, beyond any visual experience that I had ever been exposed to, Armstrong once said. Although he had been a Navy fighter pilot, a test pilot for NASAs forerun ner and an astronaut, Armstrong never allowed himself to be caught up in the celebrity and glamour of the space program. I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket pro tector, nerdy engineer, he said in February 2000 in one of his rare public appearances. And I take a substantial amount of pride in the accomplish ments of my profession. A man who kept away from cameras, Armstrong went public in 2010 with his concerns about President Barack Obamas space policy that shifted attention away from a return to the moon and emphasized private com panies developing space ships. He testified before Congress and in an email to The Associated Press, Armstrong said he had substantial reservations, and along with more than two dozen Apollo-era veter ans, he signed a letter call ing the plan a misguided proposal that forces NASA out of human space opera tions for the foreseeable future. NASA chief Charles Bolden recalled Armstrongs grace and humility in a statement Saturday. As long as there are history books, Neil Armstrong will be includ ed in them, remembered for taking humankinds first small step on a world beyond our own, Bolden said. At the time of the flights 40th anniversary, Armstrong again was lowkey, telling a gathering that the space race was the ultimate peaceful competition: USA versus U.S.S.R. It did allow both sides to take the high road with the objectives of science and learning and exploration. At the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles on Saturday, visitors held a minute of silence for Armstrong. His familys statement made a simple request for anyone else who wanted to remember him: Honor his example of service, accomplish ment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink. Neil Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon July 20, 1969. He radioed back to Earth the historic news of one giant leap for mankind. Armstrong and fellow astronaut Edwin Buzz Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the moon, collect ing samples, conducting experiments and taking photographs. In all, 12 Americans walked on the moon from 1969 to 1972.

Eugene ONeil Daily Scripture ATLANTA Grammy-winning R&B singer Usher on Friday was awarded primary physical custody of his two sons, ending a long legal fight with his ex-wife. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane ruled that the singer, 33, will have primary custody of 4-year-old Usher Raymond V and 3-year-old Naviyd Ely Raymond, according to Cherrise Boone, spokeswoman for the court clerks office. His custody will start Sept. 1. Boone said Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Foster Raymond will have joint legal custody. The type of visita tion hasnt been determined yet for Tameka Raymond. Ushers lawyer, Ivory Brown, did not immediately return a call on Friday. Lisa West, a lawyer for Tameka Raymond, did not immediately return an email seeking comment. Usher, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, married Tameka Raymond in 2007. They divorced two years later. He said the couple had been separated since July 2008 and claimed there was no reasonable hope of reconciliation and the mar riage was irretrievably broken. ABC orders Jennifer Lopez-produced TV pilot LOS ANGELES ABC Family says it green-lighted a series pilot from Jennifer Lopezs production company about a lesbian couple and their diverse family. ABC Family said Thursday the comedy-drama pilot, titled The Fosters, is about two women raising a st century, multi-ethnic mix of foster and biological kids. Lopez will be an executive produc er for the hour-long project. Casting was not announced. Her company, Nuyorican, is in development on other TV series, including Taming Ben Taylor, a romantic comedy starring the actress-singer, and Sweet Little 15, a Mexican girls coming-of-age story. Lopez, who recently exited American Idol as a judge, also is developing films through her com pany. Lawyer fighting Calif. anti-paparazzi law LOS ANGELES The lawyer for a paparazzo charged with recklessly pursuing photos of Justin Bieber says he is challenging the constitu tionally of a new law. Attorney David S. Kestenbaum says it violates the First Amendment and is overly broad. He represents Paul Raef, a celebrity photographer who was charged July 25 with four counts, including reckless driving with the intent to capture pictures for commercial gain, following another vehicle too closely and reck less driving. A hearing on Kestenbaums motion is set for Sept. 24. Kestenbaum says Raef has not been booked because he is the first per son charged under the 2010 law and police did not recognize it. The charges stem from a July 6 high-speed freeway pursuit involving Bieber and photographers. Coroner: Scotts notes reveal nothing about death LOS ANGELES Los Angeles County coroners officials say notes left behind by Top Gun director Tony Scott did not give a motive why he would kill himself. Coroners office spokesman Ed Winter also said Friday the notes didnt mention any health issues. The 68-year-old Scott died Sunday after leaping from the Vincent Thomas Bridge into Los Angeles Harbor. An autopsy was performed on the British-born directors body Monday, but it will be a month or more before an official cause of death is determined. Usher wins primary custody of sons Hip-hop artist Usher Raymond takes the witness stand in court in a legal battle with his ex-wife in a custody fight involving their two sons, in Atlanta.

The truck was parked on the side of the road between Sonnys and McDonalds. White pipes could be seen inside the hole. From staff reports The Columbia County Public Works Department is distribut ing free sandbags today from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 607 N.W. Quinten St. Each vehicle is limited to 25 bags. The Columbia County Citizens Information Center, 386-719-7530, is open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. to answers ques tions residents may have leading up to and follow ing the storm. By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org Anthony Lewis Britt was sen tenced to 20 years in prison and 10 years probation during a Thursday afternoon sentenc ing hearing for the March 2010 death of Lake City resident, Stephen Elisha Fulton. Britt, 29, of Fort White, was given the prison term during a sentencing hear ing Thursday afternoon in the Columbia County Courthouse by Circuit Judge Julian E. Collins. Fulton died from multiple stab wounds he suffered on March 25, 2010, after he was involved in a fight with Britt that stemmed from an alleged drug deal gone bad at Windsong Apartments. A four-man, two-woman jury, deliberated for three and a half hours on July 2 before returning a verdict of guilty of manslaugh ter with a weapon. The guilty of manslaughter with a weapon conviction carried a maximum possible penalty of 30 years. The trial was initially sched uled to take place June 25 June 28, but was postponed for two days due to the rain and flood ing from Tropical Storm Debby. Kimberly Mears served as the court appointed attorney for Britt during the legal proceed ings. Roberta Getzan served at the prosecuting attorney for the State Attorneys Office in the case and her co-chair was assis tant state attorney Melissa Olin. Getzan and Olin were assisted by state attorney office investi gator Ryan Nydam. Our heart goes out to Mr. Fultons family for the loss of their loved one, said Getzan. Fulton was only 24 years old when he was killed by Anthony Britt. He was engaged to be married to Lakeisha JenningsMitchell and they had a young son, Stephen Fulton Jr., who is now just 3 years old. Mitchell and Fultons moth er, Linda Reed Alberti and his brother Daniel Jones were present at the hearing and all three addressed the court. Alvin Fulton, the victims father, was also present at the hearing along with other family members and friends. Mears called Britts family members Debbie Britt, Lewis Britt and Amanda Britt, who addressed the court. Britt also addressed the court. Collins sentenced Britt to 20 years in prison to be followed by 10 years of probation. As part of his probation, Britt will be ordered to pay for Fultons funeral expenses and other stat utory costs. The state attorney thanks the officers and investigators of the Lake City Police Department for their investigation in the case, Getzan said. The State Attorneys Office further wants to extend its appreciation to Capt. Martin Redmond of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for assigning officers Robby Creech and Todd Nichols to assist our investigator in getting witnesses out of flooded area and to the courthouse so they could offer their testimony. According to the initial Lake City Police Department reports from March 25, 2010, authori ties were called to 3040 SW Windsong Circle, Apt. 205, in reference to a fight, where they found Fulton in the apartment and reported he had multiple stab wounds. An ambulance was called to the scene and started rendering aid to Fulton before he was taken away for treat ment. A short time later, Britt reportedly called the police department and reported he had been in a fight at Windsong Apartments. Columbia County Sheriffs Office deputies responded to an address in the county until LCPD investigators could arrive. Britt had injuries which also required medical attention and an ambulance was called and took him to a hospital for treat ment. Britt was released from Shands Lake Shore Hospital after being treated. Reports say Britt told author ities he went to Fultons apart ment to pick up some drugs and he was invited into the apart ment. Once inside, an argu ment broke out, which turned into a fight. During the fight, Britt sustained knife wounds, and Fulton sustained multiple stab wounds resulting in his death. Britts injuries were not considered life-threatening, reports said. By LAURA HAMPSON email@example.com Lake Citys Disaster Recovery Center, opened by FEMA after Tropical Storm Debby, will become a Disaster Loan Outreach Center Monday, which will likely close Thursday, Aug. 30.

M iss Independence marks another birthday this week and another year zips by as I woefully try to keep up. Another school year begins, and with it, another turn of the family calendar in our household. The beginning of her senior year of elementary school and a birthday in the same week. My daughter, Lauren, is 11. The time leading up to the big celebration has forced me to hear and experience things that make me cringe a little, inside at least, when I see the grown-up obvious. Last year, I thought it was monumental, turning 10 and all, hitting double digits, certainly becoming a big girl, but that was nothing, she tells me. Just a warm-up for things to come. (Cringe. I know this, but I dont want to hear it.) Full of sweet determination and curiosity, she continues to run laps around me. Literally. The past year saw Lauren run her first 5k race, which is a great accomplish-ment for anyone. She does it a whole lot easier than I do. Combine this with an excellent year in competitive gymnastics, and during the past year, shes evolved into a solid athlete. Weve discovered sharks teeth, found a love of fishing, and once again traveled halfway across the country on a monumental father-daughter road trip. This years excursion was to St. Louis. A few days in the other Gateway City did us both good. It allowed me the chance to truly pass down the Midwestern expe-rience in a great city that was my stomping ground for a lot of years. She humored me while I told some of my stories from back in the day. We did the consummate tourist thing, checked out some of the local history, and climbed in an ancient steel washing machine five-seat canister, the same rickety ones used since I was a kid, for a four-minute ride to the top of the Gateway Arch 630 feet above the Mississippi River bank. She posed and I took the same pictures I was in as a kid and stood on the observation deck and looked at amazement at the stacked skyline on the Missouri side and the void that are factories and fields on the industrial Illinois side. Lauren reveled in the experience of being above it all. We went to her first Major League game at the cathedral of all that is right and righteous in baseball Busch Stadium. There is nothing like building your sum-mer vacation in St. Louis around a weekend series. And it was Fathers Day to top it off. Praise God, she now loves Cardinals baseball as much as Gators foot-ball. My life is now complete in the sports loyalty category. So that leads us back to the Miss Independence thing. (Cringe.) Lauren also spent a week at church camp all by herself. Sure, she was in a group of trusted adults and kids she knew, but she blew town for the first time with-out parents or relatives. And she enjoyed it a little too much for my comfort meter. (Cringe.) She topped off the summer on a weeklong trip with relatives that also saw the adults of the house stay behind in Lake City. When she returned, she did admit to missing us, but she also went into the adult explanation about how she was tired of living out of a suitcase and how she was looking forward to sleeping in her own bed, etc. Im glad she loves to trav-el, but Miss Independence was a little too grown up for Daddys lik-ing this summer. (Cringe again.) Somedays, Im chastised for using the D-word. Theyre not dolls, theyre real and theyre my friends, Im scolded. Other days, I have to wait in line for my bath-room because shes getting a sec-ond opinion in my mirror on the fashion of the day. Were warp speeding toward teenage years. The days are small-numbered until boys start calling my house and that just cant happen, right? (Cringe till my face cramps.) Truthfully, the annual Lauren birthday column has become less about marking her growth and more of a therapy session for me. I get the eye rolls and the really, Dad? talk and the looks. But I also get the last Happy Birthday word: Shes still my baby girl and always will be.

Standing water will rise quickly and theres no place for it to go, nowhere to pump it. If you have water near your residence, be ready for anything. Listen to county emergency officials on taking precautions in areas that already have flooded and may see quickly rising flood water again. Hopefully, this storm stays predominantly to our west, but conditions change rapidly and for unexplained reasons with hurricanes. Pay close attention and be safe.

Morris WilliamsPhone: (386) email@example.com W. Duval St.Lake City, FL 32055 Q Morris Williams is a local historian and long-time Columbia County resident. L ake Citys Fred P. Cone was inaugu-rated Governor of Florida on January 5, 1937. Just prior to his inauguration speech, he called on the Reverend W. T. Halstead, pastor of Lake Citys First Baptist Church, to deliver the inaugural prayer. Here is a part of that prayer: Surround Governor Cone with friends who are true and loyal. Guide his feet into right paths. Teach us the worth and glory of those who prize their country above all earthly gains. Revive among us the courage that pioneered the frontier. Bring us to the dawn of that day when law is enforced by being obeyed, when patriotism does not go on parade, when common honesty becomes the fashion, and when it is our reli-gion to do justly, love mercy, and to walk humbly with God. These things we do ask for Thy glory and in the name of Him who is our Savior and Lord. Amen. A lot of people would agree that prayer is as current today as it was some 75 years ago.THANKS, RICHARDLast week I asked for some help identifying Mrs. Ann Edwards who was given a memorial plaque by the CHS Class of 1967. Richard D. Poole kindly researched the matter and sent me this email: I did some looking in my old CHS Annuals and found that Mrs. Ann Edwards was a sponsor for the Class of 1968 who had passed away. There is a picture of her in the 1967 Columbian. She was a teacher of Vocational Education. There is a Memorandum page in the 1968 Annual. Thanks, Richard, and thanks also go to Liz McElroy Glass for her helpful call to add to the information.FLASHBACK CHS 1937Thanks to friend Julia Geohagen Osborn who deliv-ered a CHS 1937 senior class photo to our School Museum, along with baccalaureate and graduation programs. The materials belonged to Clara Margaret Moore and were donated by her children Carol, Johnny, Linda, and James Rooks. Interestingly, three of the classs honor graduates were last-named Moore: Jack, Evelyn Mae, and Clara Margaret.REMEMBER DEPORTMENT?Some local people from yesteryear remember when students got a grade for deportment on their report cards, right along with grades for reading, writing, and arith-metic. Deportment referred to student conduct. If you were well-behaved in the classroom and on the playground, you got a good grade. If not, you got a bad grade and usually faced stern parents when you took your report card home.NOAHS ADVICEWhat advice did Noah give his sons about fishing off the ark? Go easy on the bait, boys. I only have two worms! A prayer fora governor T he Republican National Convention starting Monday in Tampa will be the first such political gathering with blanket cover-age by social media; indeed, some enthusiasts are calling it the first convention of the Social Media Age. The prime-time portions of the conventions have become overly scripted commercials for the two parties and absent any spontaneity, let alone a real fight. The last one was Ronald Reagans challenge to Jerry Ford in 1976, and the planners will go to any lengths to prevent another such display of party disunity. In part to forestall any disruptions by Ron Pauls 160 del-egates, voting on the nominee will begin Monday instead of Wednesday, as is customary. Thus, the major TV networks have cut back to four hours of coverage over three nights. Into that gap, social media have swarmed: Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr. YouTube, for example, will live-stream the entire proceedings as well as content generated by its followers. The Republican Party -and presumably the Democrats, too, when their turn comes -are desperate to exploit social media, seeing it as a way to get their message out without the filter of newspapers and broad-casters. The GOP has set up a Social Media War Room at the conven-tion center to generate content favorable to the candidates and their followers and to instantly rebut negative stories appearing on the Web. As the Chinese and Russians have learned, the two parties may find their efforts to direct and control social media con-tent are an exercise in futility. The GOP says 15,000 journalists are coming to Tampa. Thats more than triple the 4,411 Republican delegates and alternates. Many of the news-people are mainstream media. The older political hands in the parties may find themselves looking back fondly on the days when a relative handful of major newspapers, the three networks and the wire services, operating by traditional rules of journal-ism, dictated the content and tone of the coverage. The Social Media Age, if such there really be, will change the political conventions in ways no one can predict -or control.Twitter, Facebook to blanket conventions Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service.

DAVID ESPO AP Special Correspondent TAMPA Republican offi cials abruptly announced plans Saturday night to scrap the first day of their national convention, bowing to the threat of Tropical Storm Isaac as it bore down men acingly on Florida. The safety of those in Isaacs path is of the utmost importance, tweeted Mitt Romney, his formal nomination as presidential candi date pushed back by a minimum of 24 hours from Monday night to Tuesday. The announcement was made as convention-goers flocked to the Tampa Bay area by the plane load for what had been scripted as four days of political pageantry and speechmaking with a pur pose to propel Romney into the fall campaign against President Barack Obama. Officials said they hoped to begin laying out a revised sched ule on Sunday. Romney campaigned in bat tleground Ohio during the day, pledging to help female entre preneurs and innovators who are eager to create small businesses and the jobs that go with them. It was an economy-themed count down to a convention taking shape in a city already bristling with security and bracing for a possible hurricane. Women in this country are more likely to start businesses than men. Women need our help, said the Republican presiden tial challenger, eager to relegate recent controversy over abortion to the sidelines and make the nations slow economic recovery the dominant issue of his conven tion week. Reince Priebus, the Republican Party chairman, told reporters on an early evening conference call that no state delegations had changed their travel plans because of the storm. Everyone is planning on being here and we hope we are up and running and expect all of our delegates to be here, he said. Yet with rain and high winds in the forecast, and with the threat of a storm surge and possible flooding, convention organizers said they were making contin gency plans to move delegates who have been booked into beachfront hotels to other loca tions if necessary. Our first priority is ensuring the safety of delegates, alter nates, guests, members of the media attending the Republican National Convention, and citizens of the Tampa Bay area, con vention CEO Bill Harris said in an emailed announcement that followed private conversations involving Romneys campaign, Florida Gov. Rick Scotts office, security officials and others. The announcement said that while the convention would offi cially be gaveled into session on Monday as scheduled, the days events would be cancelled until Tuesday. The announcement made the GOP convention the partys sec ond in a row to be disrupted by weather. Four years ago, the del egates gathered in St. Paul, Minn., but Hurricane Gustav, slamming the Gulf Coast, led to a one-day postponement. In that case, party officials rewrote their script to make President George W. Bushs speech into a video appearance, and to cancel plans for Vice President Dick Cheney to appear before the delegates. Both men were unpopu lar at the time. Four years later, there was no immediate sign that Romneys forc es would do anything other than squeeze two nights of platform programming into one. Nor did it appear the postponement would cost them much in political terms, since the television networks had already announced they would not be carrying any of Mondays events live. Despite the disruption, Priebus said, we are optimistic that we will begin an exciting, robust conven tion that will nominate the RomneyRyan ticket. Plans had called for the conven tion to open Monday with quick rat ification of a conservative platform expected, followed by Romneys nomination in a traditional roll call of the states timed for network evening news coverage. Barring further postponements it will end Thursday with his prime-time acceptance speech, which aides hope will propel him into a successful fall cam paign and, eventually, the White House. The polls made the race a close one, narrow advantage to Obama, as two weeks of back-to-back con ventions approached. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on television ads, with hun dreds of million more to come, almost all of it airing in a small group of battleground states expected to settle the election. The list included Florida as well as North Carolina, where the Democratic National Convention will be held in one weeks time. Scott declared a state of emer gency earlier in the day as the storm approached the Florida Keys, more than 400 miles from Tampa. Forecasters said it was on a track to head west of the con vention city, but predicted strong winds and rain at a minimum on Monday as the delegates were to board buses for their first trip to the hall. We are a hospitality state. We know how to take care of people and we want to ensure their safe ty, Scott said. Apart from weather concerns, a heavy security presence was already in evidence. Miles of fencing were designed to create a secure zone around a tract of land that included the convention hall, the hotel where Romney will stay and a nearby convention center where journalists and oth ers worked. Obama did his best to intrude on the Republican unity tableau. In an interview with The Associated Press, he accused Romney of holding extreme positions on economic and social issues, while pledging a willingness on his own part to agree to a whole range of com promise with Republicans if he is re-elected. He did not elaborate, but his pledge seemed designed to appeal to independents and other voters who say they are tired of seemingly perpetual campaign bickering and Washington grid lock. Plans for Vice President Joe Biden to campaign in Florida were cancelled, also because of the threat posed by the storm. But Romney said Obamas entire campaign rested on his abil ity to persuade people to ignore his record and listen instead to his rhetoric. It is not his words people have to listen to. Its his action and his record, he said in his appear ance in Powell, Ohio. And if they look at that, theyll take him out of the office and put people into the office wholl actually get America going again. Romneys speech included an appeal to women made on eco nomic grounds rather than on the basis of social issues like abortion, the sort of approach the Republican hopes will eat into Obamas polling advantage among female voters. I want to make sure that we help entrepreneurs and innova tors. I want to speak to the women of America who have dreams, who begin businesses in their homes, who begin businesses out in the marketplace, who are working at various enterprises and companies, he said. Romney envisioned an eco nomic resurgence fueled by abundant energy, expanded trade and a skilled workforce. If that happens, America is going to surprise the world. Were going to stand out as a shining city on a hill in part because of our extraordinary economy, he said to the cheers of an estimated 5,000 supporters. Romneys determination to turn the attention to the econo my follows two weeks of contro versy over Medicare, courtesy of Obamas campaign, as well as abortion, the result of a comment by Rep. Todd Akin, the partys candidate in a Senate race in Missouri. Romney joined an unsuc cessful effort by party leaders to force Akin to quit his race after he said women who are raped rarely become pregnant, a view unsupported by medical evidence. He also fought back hard in recent days in person and televi sion advertising against Obamas allegations that he and run ning mate Ryan would remake Medicare in a way that would undermine the health of future seniors.

Storm forces GOP to scrap first day of convention ASSOCIATED PRESS THOMAS BEAUMONT Associated Press TAMPA On the eve of their national party conven tions, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are locked in a close race to amass the req uisite 270 Electoral College votes for victory. And the contest is exactly where it was at the start of the long, volatile summer: focused on seven states up for grabs. Neither candidate has a significant advan tage in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire and Virginia, which offer a combined 85 electoral votes, accord ing to an Associated Press analysis of public and private polls, spending on television advertising and numerous interviews with Republican and Democratic strategists in battleground states. The analysis, which also took into account the strength of a candidates onthe-ground organization and travel schedules, found that if the election were held today, Obama would have 19 states and the District of Columbia, offering 247 votes, solidly in his column or leaning his way, while Republican Romney would have 24 states and 206 votes. Obama won all seven of the too-close-to-call states in 2008, and they are where the race will primarily be con tested in the homestretch to the Nov. 6 election. Ten weeks before Election Day, the AP analysis isnt meant to be predictive but rather is intended to pro vide a snapshot of a race thats been stubbornly close all year. Among the unknowns that could shake up the electoral landscape before November: the latest unemployment figures that come out early next month, an unexpected foreign policy crisis in Syria or Iran and the outcome of the candidates October debates. Both sides are working to persuade the 23 percent of registered voters who said in an Associated Press-GfK poll that they are either unde cided about the presidential race or iffy in their support for a candidate. To woo them, the cam paigns and political parties, along with allied groups with access to unlimited financial contributions, have already spent an astounding $540 million on television advertising, according to ad spending reports provided to the AP. And theres more to come. Over the past three months, the campaign took a sharply negative turn, at times becoming nasty and personal. Obama sought to define Romney early as a ruthless corporate raider for his time at the head of a private equi ty firm in Boston, and as an out-of-touch rich man keep ing secrets about his wealth. Romney, in turn, worked to cast Obama as a failed presi dent on a host of fronts, pri marily the economy.

I will work for the people. Others crowed about his legal presence and ability. Ive known Bill Brannon a long time and there is no bet ter advocate for the people of North Florida, Rod Smith, of Gainesville, Florida Democratic Party Chairman said in a pre pared statement. As a former state attorney, I know firsthand the importance of this role and it is with that experience and under standing that I wholeheartedly back Bill for State Attorney. Brannon has experience work ing in both private practice and as an assistant public Defender for the Third Judicial Circuit. From 2004 to 2010, Brannon was cho sen by the Third Circuit Judges to serve as General Magistrate for the Third Circuit. Currently, he serves as the Executive Director of the State Attorneys Office under current State Attorney Skip Jarvis. I think Bill Brannon is an excellent choice as nominee, said Third Judicial Circuit Public Defender Dennis Roberts, who is retiring at the end of the year. He is a very level-headed, common-sense type person. I worked with Bill in private prac tice at the Brannon & Brown law firm for several years. When I was elected Public Defender in 1988, Bill was the first person I hired. In addition to his legal experi ence, Brannon has served on the board of directors of the Lake City/Columbia County Chamber of Commerce; as President of the Columbia County March of Dimes; President of the Lake City Rotary Club; Chairman of the Columbia Planning and Zoning Board; and on the Judicial Nominating Committee for the Third Circuit. A. Brannon Jordan, Florida Democratic Party communica tions director, explained why the party decided to go with Brannon as its candidate. Bill Brannon is an excellent candidate, she said. Hes got deep roots in the community, hes respected by his peers and has unparalleled legal experi ence. We think he really under stands this role. Our chairman Rod Smith, who is a former state attorney himself, said he knows the importance of this role and the importance of experience that a quality candidate needs to bring to the table to this job and Bill certainly does that. Brannon is a graduate of Columbia High School, the University of Florida and Florida State University School of Law. He currently resides in Lake City with his wife, Bobbi.

Ask About Jima, which saw some of the fiercest fighting in the Pacific Campaign of WWII. The worst one was Okinawa. My boat was hit by a Kamikaze, Capoldo said. From his position in the forward magazine, Capoldo could not see what was hap pening, he could only hear and feel it. Now that will really get to you, he said. The Kamikaze planes engine ended up in the side of the LCS-51, a flat-bottom landing warship, but did not sink it. The ship was 158-feet long, 23-feet wide, Capoldo said. It wasnt much of a boat and we crossed the Pacific in it, he said. Capoldo has a picture of the damaged ship hanging on the wall at his home. The engine sticks out of the ship like a tumor and shrapnel dents stud the rest of the vessel. Sailors pose around the damage. A gunner was the only one hurt by the shrapnel, he said. He also displays the transcript from a war time radio program that describes the damages and how the ship and its crew kept going. We shot down 11 Japanese planes, Capoldo said. After three years, Capoldo was discharged as a Seaman First Class. He worked as a pipefit ter in Connecticut before moving to South Florida and eventually to Lake City six years ago. He has three grown sons in Connecticut and several grandchildren. After moving to the area, Capoldo joined his first veterans group, the D-Day Normandy Veterans of North Central Florida, which meets monthly in Alachua. Capoldo said the camara derie is good for veterans. We sit around and tell lies, ya know, he said. After reading about the Legion of Honor medal, he and several other members applied. Capoldo was the first of the group to receive the award, which he thinks is based on alphabetical order. Capoldo adds the Legion of Honor medal to host of others including: the China Service Medal, Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal with two stars, the Victory Medal and the Philippine Liberation Medal from the Republic of the Philippines. Capoldos wife Hattie said it was fantastic to see him receive the medal. Thats for him, she said. About a dozen men make up the D-Day group and they keep finding more members, despite the fact that WWII veterans are a dying breed. We have found that its the largest group of its kind in the country, he said. Some men in the group saw the horrors of Nazi concentration camps, imag es they have lived with for decades. One man can say only a few words about his experience, before his eyes well up with tears, Capoldo said. Capoldo said his time in WWII did not leave him haunted. I was very lucky,. tions and resources are in place. We will see our state through this storm until the danger has passed. Emergency officials said more about the storms path should be known after the National Weather Service releases its latest projections today. Alabama Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman Yasamie August said residents in the southern half of Alabama should start con sidering where they would go and what they would do if the storm gets close. At a minimum, they could face heavy wind and rain. We want people not to wait until later to prepare, but to prepare now, she said. The city council in Gulf Shores, a city on the Gulf of Mexico, met Saturday to discuss the possibility of rescheduling elections set for Tuesday because of the incoming storm, city spokesman Grant Brown said. City officials decided to review Sundays fore cast before taking any action. At this time were ask ing people to pay particu lar attention to the storm and make sure theyre watching the news, Brown said.

District Executive Director Ann Shortelle presented a resolution to South Florida Water Management District Executive Director Melissa Meeker on Aug. 23. Tropical Storm Debby dropped more than 20 inches of rain across North Florida during the last week of June, resulting in significant wide spread flooding within the District. Since the District does not have the pumping equipment or discharge piping needed to assist counties within its borders, the SFWMD and other districts quickly dispatched personnel and pumping equipment to assist in addressing flooding, and they continued such assistance over multiple weeks. Within 48 hours after the storm had ended, the SFWMD was on site with pumps and personnel, working beside the District for sev eral weeks to alleviate flooding and provide assistance to the public, said Shortelle. The District would like to sincerely thank all the water management districts. SRWMD Executive Director Ann Shortelle, left, and SFWMD Executive Director Melissa Meeker. COURTESY

Last year, the Tigers struggled to a 19-13 win against Sante Fe High. This season, after a stall on the opening drive, Columbia did anything but struggle to put points on the board in a 34-0 win. The offense was rolling and the defense was stingy. The biggest thing is I dont want to see us under-achieve, Allen said. I was more pleased with the men-tal preparation before the game than anything else. But the coach also had to be pleased with his starting units. Columbia forced two three-and-outs to start the game, sandwiched around a stalled opening drive of their own, but when the Tigers touched the ball for the second time, things started to roll. It began with the running game as Columbia moved the ball for 18 yards on its first four plays with runs by Braxton Stockton and Ronald Timmons. Jayce By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Boom! Boom! Fort White opened the football season with fireworks. The Indians scored on the second play of the kickoff classic and cruised to a 26-6 win over visiting Suwannee High on Friday. Fort White won the toss and Michael Mulberry returned the opening kick-off 21 yards to the Indians 34. On the first play, quarterback Andrew Baker hit Melton Sanders for 39 yards. On the second play, wide receiver Trey Phillips got the call on a speed sweep around the right side and went 27 yards for a touch-down. Fort White led 6-0 less than two minutes into the game. Their defense sat there and played tight and it gave us a shot to go over the top, Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. We did a good job throwing. Baker completed 6-of-12 passes for 131 yards, and hooked up with Phillips on a 10-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He was intercepted once. Sanders added a second catch for eight yards, and Phillips caught three passes for 58 yards.

Now the fun beginsA s far as Columbia Highs football team has come since last years kickoff classic win against Santa Fe High, a 34-0 win by the starters on Friday means nothing. Given, the beatdown was much more fun to watch from the Tigers viewpoint than last years grinded out 19-13 win, the game really does nothing to help the Tigers accomplish their goal. Theres been talk of 10-0 and that all begins this week. While a dominant defense, superb-line play and big running plays are all nice, the Tigers will still enter next weeks contest against Baker County at 0-0. But thats a good thing. Theres no need for Columbia to get cocky now. Head coach Brian Allen does a good job of keeping the team in check. He mentioned to them after the game of the slippery slope this season will be. He mentioned that one extra point can be the difference. Sure, there are a lot of positives when you look at 34-0, but positives dont help a team get better. Its the coaches job to find out the areas where the Tigers struggle and pick the team apart in film study. Time to go to work. From here out,

Denny Hamlin won for the first time at Bristol Motor Speedway with a calculated late pass. Hamlin flirted with Carl Edwards for the lead late in the race, and set up his move with 39 laps remain-ing Saturday night. Hamlin used a slide move to get past Edwards, then held on as Edwards tried to use a cross-over move to get back in front. It didnt work for Edwards, and Hamlin drove away for his third victory of the season. Jimmie Johnson finished second and clinched a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup champi-onship. Greg Biffle and Dale Earnhardt Jr. also locked down spots in the 12-driver field.

Jackson also was happy with the Indians bread-and-butter rushing attack. Tavaris Williams carried 17 times for 115 yards in the three quarters of varsi-ty play. He had touchdown runs of three and 10 yards Jackson was especially pleased with the second scor-ing run that came in the third quarter when both teams were pounding the ball with their running games. On the series, Fort White drove from its 45 to a first down at the Bulldogs 10. Williams had runs of 12 and 24 yards in the drive. On third-and-5 an illegal pro-cedure penalty moved the ball back on the 10. Jackson stuck with his run called and Williams waltzed into the end zone. I have to give my offensive line credit tonight, and you can include the fullback (Edward Garrison) in that, Jackson said. Suwannee was physical and had a big defensive line. We chal-lenged the offensive line and they came out and showed what they can do. Fort Whites defense forced six fumbles and recovered three. Kellen Snider, Devontae Levy and Phillips had the recoveries. The Bulldogs rushed for 163 yards, with 57 coming on a touchdown run by Jai Kinsey on the final play of the first quarter. They came out a ran a little power stuff at us, Jackson said. It was missed tackles more than anything. Suwannees touchdown cut the Fort White lead to 13-6. The Indians got it back on Bakers touchdown pass midway through the second quarter. The fourth quarter was turned over to the junior varsities and both came out fired up. Fort White quarterback Elijah Bryant completed a pass to John Byrne and had a 25-yard scramble on the final play of the game, com-ing up just short of the end zone. Jarrod Brown had an 11-yard run for the Indians. It was a good meet-andgreet for the JV teams who will play for real at 7 p.m. Thursday in Live Oak. As for varsity play this week, Fort White will bring in Hamilton County High, while Suwannee plays host to Madison County High.Suwannee 6 0 0 x 6 Fort White 13 7 6 x 26 First Quarter FWPhillips 27 run (kick failed), 11:23 FWT.

Timmons then broke for the first explosive play of the game with a run of 20 yards to set up a Barber touchdown pass to Nate Ayers from four yards out on a fade route. Brayden Thomas added the extra point. Ben Kuykendall picked up a fumble on the next Raiders drive and set up a ground-out touchdown for the Tigers. Five runs capped by a Stockton touch-down from a yard out gave the Tigers a 13-0 lead early after a missed extra point. Javere Smith slowed down the Raiders next drive with a sack on third down, but Columbia was slowed in its next drive. After a couple of first downs, the Columbia defense sunk its teeth in and returned the ball to the Columbia offense with 7:34 remaining in the half. Again, it was the running game that marched the Tigers down the field with five runs none less than seven yards on the possession. But the drive finished through the air as Barber hooked up with Ayers for the duos second touchdown connection of the game. This time they connected from 32 yards for a 20-0 lead. Hes turned the light back on since I had to get on to him a bit in the sum-mer, Allen said of Ayers. Hes nothing but a team player now and a pleasure to coach. Another three-and-out was followed by another methodical drive from Columbia. This time the Tigers opened up the pass-ing game as Barber com-pleted five passes on the drive and then handed it over to the running game as Stockton plowed in from five yards out to cap off the half with a 27-0 lead. Coach Allen gave his starters one more series to begin the second half and it didnt take long for the Tigers to score. An opening-half pass of 50 yards from Barber to Bradley triggered the drive and two plays later Shaq Johnson finished the night for the starters with a 21-yard touchdown recep-tion. For the defense, it was business as usual to end the game as Columbia forced another three-and-out. Coach Allen said that the score is an indication of how far the Tigers have come, but also that Santa Fe is a little down from last season. I think its a little bit of both, he said. Were going to have another good test next week in Baker County, which will want to come out and knock our heads off. But Santa Fe coach Bill Wiles put it simply about what he thinks of the Tigers. Its just obvious that theyre a very, very good football team, Wiles said. If the opening game is any indication, Wiles could be right. When the younger players took over, the Tigers continued to execute. Lonnie Underwood put on a show during is 53-yard run with 6:42 remain-ing in the third quarter. It gave the Tigers a 41-0 lead, although the real game was already over. For the junior varsity, Dallon Washington had a 75-yard run for a touch-down that was called back for holding. Later in the game he busted a 35-yard run.Santa Fe 0 0 0 x 0 Columbia 13 14 7 x 34 First Quarter CHS Ayers 4 pass from Barber (Thomas kick) 4:34 CHS Stockton 1 run (kick failed) 3:16 Second Quarter CHS Ayers 32 pass from Barber (Thomas kick) 5:58 CHS Stockton 5 run (Thomas kick) 0:26 Third Quarter CHS Johnson 21 pass from Barber (Thomas kick) 11:04 Sante Fe ColumbiaFirst downs 3 11Rushes-yards 12-20 22-143Passing 0 139 Comp-Att-Int 0-0-1 9-15-0 INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS RUSHINGColumbia, Stockton 8-37, Timmons 9-63, Barber 4-30, Underwood 2-14.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterA Suwannee defender is unable to cover Trey Phillips (5) as he catches a pass made by quarterback Andrew Baker. Rough start for Bulldogs new coachBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Suwannee High head coach Jamie Rodgers has signed on to the task of bringing back the Bulldogs. It was 1990 when Suwannee won the last of its four consecutive state championships and the Bulldogs have not been in the playoffs since 2003. Rodgers knows the Suwannee tradition from his days at Baker County. He was on the staff of Bobby Johns, who coached under Danny Green at Columbia High and later went to Blountstown High and Baker County as the head coach. Blountstown went to four playoffs under Johns and the championship game in 2004. Baker County was in the playoffs from 2007-09. It might be a tough sell, though Suwannee brought a good crowd to Arrowhead Stadium on Friday. Morale is not good, but it is my job to get it back, Rodgers said following the kickoff classic game. Several lost fumbles on Friday were bugging the head coach. We didnt have a single turnover in the spring and we had about five tonight, Rodgers said. When you have five turnovers, you lose. Period. We can be thankful it was only 26-6; it is usually a lot worse when you turn the ball over that much. Rodgers saw some positives. We run-blocked a lot better than in the spring and were a touch more physical, he said. We lined up wrong quite a bit. We are young on defense and we need to be more physical. The Bulldogs will have their physicality tested in the season opener. Madison County High visits the Dog Pound on Friday. Suwannee is in District 2-5A with Godby, Rickards and Wakulla high schools. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort Whites Andrew Baker (12) slips past a Suwannee de fender during a quarterback keep while getting blocks from his offensive line on Friday.Line proves worthBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE If Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson was giv-ing out game balls for the kickoff classic, he said the offensive line would get the nod over the defense or skill players. It could be the first of many for the group that was declared most in need of improvement coming into the season. They read the papers and they saw everybody saying the weakest part of our team was the offensive line, position coach Dan Marsee said. I told them if they were tired of hearing it, to do something about it. The offensive line went out and paved the way to more than 300 yards of offense in three quarters. The line had an odd look with 320-pound A.J. Kluess playing guard and dwarfing center Randall Fraddosio and tackle Dre Brown on his right. Chris Waites was at left guard and Brason Caley at tackle. Caleb Bundy is the tight end. Kluess was expecting to play center or tackle, but Marsee went with having his experience and that of Waites sandwiched on the inside with the less experi-enced linemen. Caley, Fraddosio and Brown are all sophomores and this was basically their first varsity experience, Marsee said. We want Waites and Kluess direct-ing traffic. We think that makes the others more comfortable. We are able to put A.J. at guard because he has worked on his foot-work and movement all summer. Fraddosio backed up Jonathan Dupree at center last year, but there are not many snaps available when the guy ahead of you is all-state. I think we did good, Fraddosio said after Fridays game. We proved the offensive line is not the weak point anymore. I am just trying to look good and hoping we run the ball. I like coming off and hitting. Marsee said running the ball would will be crucial, especially up the middle. We have so much speed, I always thought we could get outside, Marsee said. When they spread out to stop that, can we run the ball between the tackles? I was pleased with that tonight. Friday was a first step.We are going to lean on the line all season, Marsee said. How the offense goes will be how they go right through them.

Head coach Brian Allen played his starters for two quarters and the opening drives of the second half. In that time the offensive line pushed the running game to 140 yards on 23 carries. It also didnt allow a sack. With five returning starters that begins with Laremy Tunsil at left tack-le and ends with Deontae Crumitie at right tackle, the Tigers are strong up front. Milla Chasteen, John Sweat and Thomas Holmes make up the middle of the pack. Competition will only increase as the year goes on, but the initial response is that this unit could lead the Tigers offense. We have a lot more familiarity with each other and know what the guy next to us is going to do, Chasteen said. We have three seniors and two juniors that have been starting together since I stepped in. Were pushing the running backs to get everything they can get. And Columbias running backs coach has taken notice of the difference at this point in the season, as compared to last year. What we see is five guys gelling together, Quinton Callum said. We started to see it this summer at the FCA Camp (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) and the backs are being patient to wait for the holes to open. Coach Allen equates the groups success to a matter of maturity this season that he didnt necessarily see at the beginning of last year. Its a mature group, he said. You know, this isnt their first time together. Last year at this point we were mixing and matching until game two or three. We finally got it rolling against Buchholz and now theyre playing with confidence. Its not only about the running game, but Jayce (Barber) had time to stand back there and deliver. But its not just about the offensive front. Fullback Darren Burch is an honor-ary member of the front as hes counted on to open many holes. His coach hasnt failed to notice. Hes the motor that starts this thing, Callum said. Hes a heck of a full-back, one of the best com-ing out of the backfield in the area.

Head coach Brian Allen was pleased with the effort, but he knows that the Tigers have work to do to reach their ultimate goals. Theres some things we need to work on, Allen said. We missed an extra point and you never know. The game against Gainesville could come down to one point. Allen spoke to the Tigers in the pregame about tem-pering their confidence and the rigors that the season will bring. My pregame speech was about climbing the mountain, he said. This season, were going to be on a slippery slope. Weve got to take baby steps and learn from our mistakes each time we take the field. Theres going to be set-backs such as fumbles and explosive plays, but weve got to bounce back. While quarterback Jayce Barber had a pretty decent game by most peoples standards with two touch-down passes and no inter-ceptions, Allen believes he can get more out of his quarterback. Im very critical of my quarterback, because I think he can be very good, Allen said. He has the abil-ity to be one of the best in the area and state. Its not like he played horrible, but he could have played better. To be one of the best, hes got to deliver every week whether its Santa Fe, Baker County or Gainesville High School. While its hard to nitpick a defense that didnt give up a point with the starting unit in, the offense did stall on two drives and first-year offensive coordinator Mitch Shoup wasnt pleased with that. We had a couple of drops to start the game and had to punt, he said. We dont want to let off the throttle. And although the offense got going after a couple of early miscues, Shoup was still able to pick out some things that he wants the Tigers to improve upon. We definitely have to get better in the short passing game, he said. We have to do a better job of getting the ball out in time and making better decisions. Its hard to pick out every area without looking at the film, but I can guarantee you that there are a lot of areas that we must get better at before a tough opponent next week. Its not going to get any easier.

Looking for repeat success By BRANDON FINLEY firstname.lastname@example.org After a successful first year under head coach Todd Carter that saw the Lady Tigers golf team advance to the regional round, Columbia High will tee it up again beginning on Monday looking for even bigger things. Returning are senior captains Ashley Mixon and Shelby Camp. Carter believes that they should anchor the Lady Tigers dur ing their senior season and the girls are ready to com pete as well. Im so excited for this season, Mixon said. All the girls have worked hard and Im excited to see them perform in our upcoming matches. Camp believes the talent is there for a repeat perfor mance this season. We have a very talented group of girls on the team this year and I look forward to a great season, Camp said. Allie Krahe will man the No. 3 position for the Lady Tigers this year. Shes excit ed about the challenge. Im super excited about my first season, Krahe said. Im ready to play with great teammates and learn from the best coaches. Brooke Russell may be young, but she has a mature take on the game. Golf is like life, you have to take it one stroke at a time, Russell said. You push forward through the obstacles and youll always come out on top. Another sophomore, Abbey Billzard rounds out the teams top five. Oh man, Im so excited to be a part of the CHS girls golf team this year, Billzard said. I will give it my all every day and learn as much as I can from my coaches and teammates. Im looking forward to a great season. Carter said hes very excited to coach the team again this year and believes a summer full of hard work will pay off. Im very excited about this season, because most of my team kept playing golf over the summer, he said. Let me tell you, it will show this year. I have a bunch of great girls and parents that support the Lady Tigers golf season. Everyone should keep read ing the paper, because its going to be a great year. The season begins at 3:30 p.m. on Monday as the Lady Tigers host Oak Hall at Quail Heights. New season, new coach for Lady Indians By TIM KIRBY email@example.com FORT WHITE Fort White High volleyball will have one of its own leading the varsity squad for 2012. New head coach Tiffany Bratcher is a 2004 Fort White graduate. She played volleyball for four years and the Lady Indians made the playoffs three of those seasons. Bratcher works as a tutor at Fort White Elementary School. The Lady Indians return to District 5-4A, where they came up short of the play offs last year after three consecutive appearances. Santa Fe High was district champion and Keystone Heights High was runnerup. Both were beaten in the playoffs by Trinity Catholic High, Keystone Heights in the first round and Santa Fe after the Raiders beat Mount Dora in round one. Trinity Catholic lost to Bishop Moore Catholic High, which beat Bolles School before losing the state championship match to Berkeley Prep. Bradford, Interlachen and Williston high schools are the others in Fort Whites district. Fort White returns five varsity players seniors Lync Stalnaker and Ashley Beckman, and juniors Leah Johnson, Mallorie Godbey and Emily Roach. Hallie Stringfellow, Rykia Jackson, Ashley Cason, Arianna House, Bailey Robinson and Alexa Hatcher round out the team. We are playing a 62 because we dont have a libero, Bratcher said. Ashley and Lync are our outside hitters, and Leah and Mallorie are our middle hitters. Hallie is our setter and Ashley will set from the back row. Bratcher said House would come in at setter and Roach will hit from the right side, and Robinson has vol leyball experience. Jackson (basketball) and Hatcher (soccer, softball) are trying volleyball for the first time and Bratcher hopes to develop a libero. They are natural athletes and I have taken them on as a project, Bratcher said. Fort White hosted a pre season classic on Thursday and played the good host, but only by a little bit. The Lady Indians lost to Union County High 22-25, 25-25 and Lafayette High 16-25, 27-27, 12-15. Mondays season-opener is a challenge. Oak Hall School visits for a 6 p.m. game. Union County will be back in Fort White for a match on Tuesday, and the Lady Indians will travel to Keystone Heights on Thursday. All three match es begin at 6 p.m. following the junior varsity match at 5 p.m. BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City Reporter Members of the 2012 Fort White High volleyball team are (front row, from left) Hallie Stringfellow, Rykia Jackson, Lync Stalnaker, Ashley Cason and Arianna House.

Lady Tigers start season Tuesday By BRANDON FINLEY firstname.lastname@example.org Columbia High coach Rebecca Golden is look ing for big things out of the Lady Tigers volleyball team this year. With a full slate of return ing starters from last year, the eyes of the Lady Tigers is on the district title. We have four seniors in Kelbie Ronsonet, Jessie Bates, Ashleigh Bridges and Sierra Vanderpool to lead our team, Golden said. I expect big things out of Kelbie returning from an ankle injury last year. Her and Jessie Bates played club ball this sum mer and it shows. Juniors Annie Milton, Chralee Watson and Megan Yates also return. Milton has been side lined with an ankles, while Yates had a concussion during the preseason. Golden expects all to play and play well in the regular season. As far as the district is concerned, Golden expects St. Augustine and Stanton Prep to be at the top again with the Lady Tigers try ing to break through. Columbia begins its sea son at 6:30 p.m. at Suwannee High on Tuesday.
By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comThe demolition of the Executive Suites Hotel on U.S. 90 has begun in order to make room for two new restaurants, Olive Garden and LongHorn Steakhouse. Demolition is underway on the site, Darden spokesperson Rich Jeffers said. Thats being done by the seller. It supposed to be done by mid-Sept. Soon after demolition is completed, construction is slated to begin. We are targeting an October construction start, Jeffers said. Jeffers said Darden is still waiting to receive building permits before construction begins. The two restaurants are anticipated to open up at slightly different times. LongHorn is expected to open first at the end of February and Olive Garden will open in early March. Both stores will be placed side by side facing U.S. 90. They will have a shared parking lot, Jeffers said. Construction of the buildings will be done by Haley Construction out of Daytona Beach. The Olive Garden is expected to bring 80 full-time jobs to the area, according to Darden. LongHorn is expected to bring 35 full-time jobs. Theyve got in excess of 100 people that they are going to employ so we are talking about a significant impact, economic develop-ment director Jesse Quillen said. Quillen said the restaurants will chip away at the current unemployment rate, which currently stacks in excess of 8 percent. The bigger deal for me with this is its kind of a quality of life contribu-tion to the community that makes it more attractive, Quillen said. According to Quillen, the restaurants will add to the abundance of restaurants on the U.S. 90 strip. Quillen said saturation is a good thing. The more options, the better. In addition to Olive Garden and LongHorn Steakhouse, Darden owns Red Lobster, The Capital Grille, Bahama Breeze, Seasons 52 and Eddie Vs restaurants.

But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way; this is not easy. ~AristotleLately, I have been working a lot with medi-cal practices on how they can improve the service they provide their patients.

Among all these practices, issues with angry patients seem to be a com-mon thread, which is not entirely surprising when How to deal with an angry customer Lake City Reporter Week of August 26 September 1, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Columbia, Inc.

2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF AUGUST 26, 2012 you consider that patients come in feeling poorly and it does not take much to set them off. Whether it is too much paperwork or a long wait time, there are a number of factors that can increase a patients frustra tion and incite their anger. When I first began work ing with these practices, I had no idea how extensive this problem was but, as I spoke with the frontline staff, they named angry patients as the number one problem they face time and time again. Whether it is a patient or another kind of customer, the best and most effective tactic for dealing with an angry person is to show empathy for their situation. Saying These are just the required forms and you need to fill them out in order to see the doctor, just will not do it. A better approach would be for the receptionist (the director of first impres sions) to say, I am so sorry to ask you to fill out this paperwork again, but it will ensure our records are correct so we can get you the best possible care. The second state ment shows empathy and offers a logical explanation for why the data needs to be collected again. Even though we can empathize with a custom ers frustration, it is never acceptable for them to raise their voice or use profanity. If this should happen, your staff needs to tell the customer that kind of behavior is unaccept able and warn them that if it continues, they will be asked to leave. For obvi ous reasons, you will also want to steer these angry customers away from your other customers and talk with them one-on-one. Unmet expectations, in general, are the cause of most angry patient situa tions. However, a lot of the anger can be mitigated by wording responses in such a way that you communi cate warmth and caring. For example, one of the most common incit ers among these medical practices is a co-pay that is higher than the patient expected. In a case like this, the front office per sonnel could say, I am so sorry that you were expecting a lower pay ment. Do you have another means of paying today or would you like for us to bill you? Which would you pre fer? A response like this puts the power back in the patients hands. I would say the best direction you can give your staff about how to deal with an angry customer is to call in the manager and allow them to handle the issue. Front office staff should not be saddled with always having to take the abuse from angry customers. These frequent beatings destroy their morale and their desire to come to work each morning. As a final caution, avoid arguing with an angry cus tomer at all costs. This just tends to make the person even angrier. Now go out and make sure your staff is trained in handling angry customers. Frequent and continuous role-playing activities are a good way to ensure they are able to respond appro priately in the moment. You can do this. Name That Company Know the answer? Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and youll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! result among companies that spent $1 billion or more on buybacks was an annualized 34 percent return for Dollar Trees buybacks. The worst result among companies that spent that much was a negative 52 percent annual return for insurer AIG (a Motley Fool newsletter recommendation). Goldman Sachs spent nearly $40 billion on buybacks between 2004 and 2011, and lost an estimated average of 8.2 percent annually on that. ing back stock outperformed the results of simply buying shares regularly over time. In other words, management teams did a terrible job timing the market with their buybacks between 2004 and 2011, when youd think their inside knowledge would steer them to better results. It turns out we outsiders could have outperformed most of them. The lesson here is that we shouldnt just accept buyback announcements as good news. Remember that the money companies spend on buybacks could instead be paid out as dividends or used to pay down debt, invest in growth, purchase other companies or saved for future use. Many of these alternate paths would have served shareholders better. Intel Inside Your Portfolio? Chip giant Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) has long dominated the processor market, and its chips power the majority of computers today. Youd do well to consider it for your portfolio. Heres why: For starters, while most chipmakers outsource the actual production of chips they design to third-party contract manufacturers, Intel remains committed to its own chip fabrication facilities. This allows it to focus heavily on next-generation manufacturing technologies while keeping that knowledge in-house. This comes at a cost, as foundries require billions in capital expenditures. But for Intel its well worth it. Indeed, it may end up helping the company boost its presence in mobile communications markets, as some rivals there have suffered due to production delays. Then theres the upcoming release of the new Windows 8 operating system, which may boost growth in traditional PCs, where Intel dominates. Intel even pays a dividend, recently that, it has a strong balance sheet, and its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio has recently been well below its five-year average. Both revenue and earnings have been growing at double-digit rates over the past few years, and revenue growth has been accelerating. When it comes to chipmakers, Intel remains a cut above the rest. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Intel, and our newsletters have recommended it as well.)

Q What are these points I read about in financial articles? S.W., Dunkirk, N.Y. A There are several kinds of points. When securing a mortgage, for example, you can often get a lower interest rate if you opt to pay some points up front, each of which is 1 percent of the value of the loan. Indexes such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average or S&P 500 are often quoted in points, not dollars, even though their components may be stock prices. Finally, a basis point is one one-hundredth of a percentage point. So an interest rate that rises from 4 percent to 4 1/2 percent has advanced 50 basis points. We hope weve made our points! *** Q Whats a companys burn rate? F.M., Baton Rouge, La. A It reflects how quickly its burning through its cash. This generally isnt an issue for established companies, but with small and quickly growing ones, a glance at the burn rate can be valuable. The number to examine is free cash flow, which is income from operations, less capital expenditures. For example, imagine that in its most recent quarterly report, Economical Aviaries (CHEEP) reported negative $25 million in free cash flow, as its cash balance fell to $75 million from $100 million. Its not unusual for firms to lose money in their early years, but its also what puts many of them out of business. In CHEEPs case, at its current burn rate it will run out of cash in just a few quarters. To stay alive, it will have to reduce spending (possibly resulting in slower growth), or find some more money (perhaps taking on debt or issuing additional stock, diluting value for existing shareholders). Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us Stock Buyback Surprises Investors are often pleased to learn that a company is buying back shares of its own stock, and essentially retiring them. After all, that will leave each remaining share with a claim on a bigger portion of the company. (Imagine a pizza being cut into six slices instead of eight.) But if shares are bought back when the stock is overvalued, the company is wasting shareholder money and destroying value. A recent report from the folks at Credit Suisse offered many eyeopening findings on buybacks. (Note, though, that theyre based on a relatively short period, from 2004 to 2011.) Consider: 500 companies spent a total of $2.7 trillion on share buybacks, while spending just $1.8 trillion on dividends. A full 460 of the 500 bought back shares. 500 companies that bought back shares had a positive return for their purchases. Thirty-one percent had a negative return.

DARDEN: Eateries will bring 100 jobs Continued From Page 1C By CHRISTOPHER RUGABER AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON Sales of new homes in the United States rose 3.6 percent in July to match a two-year high reached in May, the latest sign of a steady recov ery in the housing market. The Commerce Department said new-home sales reached a seasonal ly adjusted annual rate of 372,000. Thats the same as in May, which was the highest since April 2010. The report is the latest in a series of data points suggesting a durable hous ing recovery is underway, Dan Greenhaus, chief eco nomic strategist at BTIG LLC, a brokerage firm, said in a note to clients. In the past 12 months, sales have jumped 25 per cent. Still, the increase is from a historically low level. New-home sales remain well below the annual pace of 700,000 that economists consider healthy. The housing market is making a modest but steady recovery in part because homes are more afford able: Mortgage rates have fallen to near-record lows. Housing prices are about one-third lower than at the peak of the housing bubble in 2006. Those trends have helped lift sales of both new and previously occupied homes. Sales of previously occu pied homes increased in July from June, the National Association of Realtors said Wednesday. Sales have jumped 10 percent in the past year. Other recent reports also point to a recovery. Home prices have begun rising nationwide. They increased 2.2 percent in May from April, according to one leading index. That was the second straight increase after seven months of flat or declining prices. Builders, meanwhile, are growing more confident because theyre seeing more traffic from potential buyers. An index of builder confidence rose to its high est level in five years in August. Builders responded by applying for the largest number of building per mits in nearly four years last month. They broke ground on slightly fewer new homes in July than in June. But that was after the number of housing starts had reached a 3-year high in June. Though new homes rep resent only a small portion of the housing market, they have a disproportionate impact on the economy. US new-home sales rise to match 2-year high

LIFE Sunday, August 26, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754email@example.com Lake City Reporter'/,)(By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comFor more than 50 years, Community Concerts of Lake City has brought affordable, entertaining performances to Columbia County. While community concert groups in other areas have folded or struggled, Lake Citys non-profit is launching its 54th sea-son with advanced season ticket sales. The six-show season will kickoff Thursday, Nov. 15 with both classic and popular music per-formed by acclaimed handbell choir, The Raleigh Ringers. David Murdock, Community Concerts president, said fans from outside the area have already inquired about tickets for the handbell show. They have a following around the country, handbell groupies I guess, he said. The Hunt Family Fiddlers return to Lake City Friday, Dec. 14 with a Christmas Show full of singing, dancing, and fiddling. The Hunts perform a range of music, from Celtic to rock, and have released four albums. Last time Community Concerts hosted the Hunt Family they played for a sold-out house, Murdock said. On Saturday, Jan. 19 Terry Barber, an operatic countertenor, will showcase his vocal range from baritone to soprano. Barber has performed at the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall and around the world. Phil Dirt and the Dozers, a lively group of six, will entertain with a rock n roll oldies review of hits from the 50s, 60s and 70s Friday, Feb. 15. Then the Marlins will present a broad variety of selections includ-ing country, rock, big band, pop, classical, jazz, & bluegrass Friday, March 22. The four brothers have been performing for more than 25 years together. The season concludes Friday, April 12 with VoicePlay, formally known as 4:2 Five, a Florida-based young male acapella group specializing in vocal percussive and instrumental effects. Dedicated board members, business support and the community has kept Community Concerts going, season after season, Murdock said. The community itself seems to like what we are doing and they keep coming back, he said. All performances take place in the Alfonso Levy Performing Arts Center at Florida Gateway College. Parking is free at the center. Earlybird season tickets are $50 for adults and $5 for students in grades K-12 until Oct. 15. After that, the price is $60 for adults and $10 for students. Season memberships are available by cash or check at the Lake City Chamber of Commerce, or by credit card or mail-in form at www.communityconcerts.info. Call 466-8999 for more informa-tion. A fter a torrential rain, there isnt much you can do about a bro-ken little plant, but there are some things you can do to help your surviving plants recover more quickly. Florida is known for sudden and unexpected downpours. As of late, we may even be getting more than normal. If your vegetables are growing in raised beds, you may be feeling pretty smug right now. The rest of us fear of unexpected down-pours because our garden soils are already saturated. Besides damaging tender plants, heavy rains can be responsible for erod-ing soil away from plant roots and carrying away mulch. After a rain, check plants to see if soil needs to be replaced around any exposed roots before they dry out. If drainage is slow and the soil isnt drying out as quickly as normal, wait a few weeks before replac-ing the mulch. Removing mulch will allow for more evaporation and theres less chance for disease to spread. Take care when working in the vegetable garden around small plants or shallow rooted plants. Wet soil can be easily compacted by foot traffic. Plant roots need oxygen as well as water. Compacted soil cuts down on the vacant spaces nor-mally occupied by air and water. Lack of oxygen in the soil is a major rea-son why plants dont live in saturated soil. Water has taken over all of the empty spaces and pushed out all the oxygen. Many people are concerned that all of the rain has leached away their plant fertilizer. This may very well be the case. But if you put out more fertilizer now, the chances are pretty good that the same thing is going to happen. You will waste your money and the groundwater will gain more pollutants. I recommend that you wait to fertilize ornamen-tals and only fertilize if they show signs of any deficiencies. Try fertiliz-ing your vegetables at half or third the rate, but apply it more often. Besides ducks, there are a few things out there that just thrive on wet weather. Mosquitoes. Fungus. Plant diseases. If you have questions about whats going on with your plants, call the Master Gardeners at 752-5384.

They are seasoned Nashville musicians who have come to make North Florida their home after playing on some of the greatest country music stages in the nation. This Saturday, August 25, Ted Wright returns to serenade market customers. The farmers market is good for business. Not just for farmers and food entrepreneurs but local businesses like Lake Citys own Speedy Signs which just donated $400 in valu-able signage and banners to market operations through their Unity in Humanity Program. Also in August, the market got good news from the Suwannee Valley Community Foundation. The foundation has con-tributed $6,044 to expand market operations by installing Electronic Benefits Technology, which will allow market customers to use their credit, debit and SNAP cards to purchase healthy foods and products pro-duced by local residents and area farmers. This program, which will be implemented this fall, will provide the convenience of plastic through this advanced technology instead of having to bring cash every week to the market. The USDA and Florida Department of Children and Families in partnership with J.P. Morgan Chase will provide an iPhone software and the wireless access to the mar-ket. The Suwannee Valley Community Foundation funding will cover the implementation costs to ensure a successful launch of the program. The clos-est farmers market in the area with this ability is the High Springs Farmers Market, which was the first market in the state to offer this program. The market is good for business in other ways too. Its become a go-to venue for fundraisers for local charitable organizations. From Columbia 4-H to Haven Hospice, Church on the Way to Relay for Life, the market has helped all these organizations achieve their fundraising goals. So, if you have a group that needs our help and would like to schedule and event on a Saturday downtown, give Jackie Kite at City Hall a call. Her number is 386-719-5766. Upcoming events include: October 13 Alligator Community Theater per-forms October 20 Gateway College Day The Lake DeSoto Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon in Wilson Park located along Lake DeSoto between the Columbia County Courthouse and Shands Lakeshore Hospital in downtown Lake City. The farmers market is a project of the Lake City Community Redevelopment Agency. Farmers market offers fresh food, opportunitiesBy Sharon L. YeagoSpecial to the Reporter
2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, AUGUST 26, 2012 Page Editor: Laura Hampson, 754-0427 By JANET McCONNAUGHEY Associated Press NEW ORLEANS Corey Harrington spent the first month of his life in intensive care 150 miles from home, but his parents could see him any time thanks to a webcam in the premature babys incuba tor in Little Rock, Ark. They couldnt be there because they had anoth er young child to care for and the father had used up his leave during the final weeks of the complicated pregnancy. So instead, Brandi and Charles Ray Harrington of Bentonville, Ark., used the device to further a bonding process that doctors say is crucial. The importance of feel ing close to babies for the babies as well as their parents has transformed newborn intensive care units around the country. Instead of brief visiting hours, for instance, many allow parents 24-hour access. The next step in the process involves webcam technology that has had applications ranging from peering into eagles nests to linking soldiers in war zones with their loved ones back home. Now parents, grandpar ents and friends can log in to babycams in hospitals around the U.S. and several countries. At least eight domestic hospitals have installed such systems, and several dozen others are testing trial setups. Brandi Harrington said nurses at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences hospital often put notes on camera. She read from some that were captured in screenshots: Im now 4 (pounds) 1 oz. Woohoo! Be back soon. Pooping on my own. Gonna try to breathe on my own too. Taking the breathing tube out. The UAMS Medical Center in Little Rock was among the first to install webcams in neonatal inten sive care units back in 2006, and it had to create its own system. Now, the chairman of the hospitals OB-GYN department has passed on his software to a Pennsylvania hospital, while at least two compa nies are selling contracts for similar systems. At UAMS and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, a speaker inside each incubator lets parents coo, talk and sing to their babies. Thats not available through the 53 cam eras recently installed at Ochsner Health System near New Orleans by Healthcare Observation Systems LLC of Louisville, Ky. Company owner Blake Rutherford says about 200 of the 600-plus NICUs car ing for critically ill new borns have asked for infor mation; he has installed six systems and has trial setups at about 40 other hospitals. The systems arent used by doctors and nurs es for clinical care in the U.S. The system made by Rutherfords company doesnt store any video. People watching a baby can take screenshot pho tographs, but the video is gone as soon as its trans mitted, Rutherford said. Parents use the U.S. systems for free, and they typically get a password which they can share with family and friends to log in to a secure server to watch their baby. Developers of the sys tems say the systems could be adapted for use with dif ferent types of patients. For example, Rutherford said hes been asked about set ting up webcams for nurs ing home residents but hasnt begun developing such a system. Laura and David St. Martin can see little Emily Jane in person every day, even though their home in LaPlace, La., is only about a half-hour drive from Ochsner. She was born April 14 at 24 weeks, weigh ing 1 pound, 3 ounces. Still, they check on her regu larly, sometimes at night. It can offer a huge sense of relief, said David St. Martin: If you wake up at 2 in the morning youre able to pull her up on the camera and see shes all right. Sometimes nurses alert the St. Martins to events, such as when they took Emily Jane off a ventila tor and substituted a nasal tube to an oxygen tank. Right after they did that, Susie, her main nurse, called and said, You need to look at the camera, Laura St. Martin recalled. I was at work. I looked at the camera and said, Oh, my god! Doctors at the hospital in Little Rock say webcam monitoring of newborns in intensive care is more than a feel-good gimmick in an age of instant communica tion. Rather, they hope to reduce a number of prob lems that can occur when the babies go home by increasing bonding with parents. Premature babies are more likely to be irritable or have physical or emo tional problems, said Dr. Curtis Lowery, chairman of the OB-GYN department at UAMS. In turn, the tiny babies are more likely to be shaken or beaten which doctors think can be avoid ed through greater bond ing. If their parents havent bonded with them, theyll have problems, Lowery said. A pilot study will com pare bonding among par ents who use the system frequently and those who use it less often. Another will see whether babies show a physical response, such as changed heart or breathing rates, to hearing their parents. Cameras are built into 21 of the hospi tals 64 incubators. The sickest babies usu ally get the cameras, said nurse Sarah Rhoads, who also runs a telemedicine program for women who live in remote parts of the state and are undergoing high-risk pregnancies. They tend to put them on babies that are going to be here a longer period of time, she said. Lowery said the hospital pays about $9,000 per cam era. With a prototype you need to overbuild, he said. Now were talking about a more basic version that could be sold for a couplethousand or less. A lot of its about bond ing and keeping families together, largely. If you live three hours away, four hours away, and your babys going to be here four months its hard to do that economically, he said. This is not the same as being there but its more like being there than talk ing to the nurse thats seeing and watching the baby.

For the aspiring cooks and craft ers who frequent Pinterest. com, pinning something is one thing. Nailing it is another. By letting users cre ate virtual pinboards, Pinterest has become a popular way to keep track of home decor ideas, recipes and craft projects spread across the Internet. But those who go beyond col lecting pretty pictures and actually attempt to recreate the crafts often discover its harder than it looks. Such failures are fea tured to humorous effect on at least two sites, includ ing Pintester.com and CraftFail.com. As the name implies, the former chroni cles one womans dogged attempts to replicate reci pes, fashion, beauty prod ucts and craft ideas she spots on Pinterest. The latter, which was launched before Pinterest existed, accepts submissions from anyone who has tried, and failed, at crafting of any kind. Heather Mann of Salem, Ore., started CraftFail as a place to post her own failed projects away from her craft blog, Dollarstorecrafts. com. From her early posts about handmade soap that resembled Spam (when you want to wash your hands with what appears to be potted meat), the site has attracted hundreds of entries from fellow craft ers willing to poke fun at themselves. Pinterest is now often the inspiration, or culprit, she said. With the popularity of Pinterest, a lot of new, inexperienced people are trying crafting. They see something on Pinterest that they like and they want to recreate it, and when they do, it doesnt turn out the way they wanted it to, she said. Mann can tell a project is popular on Pinterest by how many failed versions of it arrive in her inbox. When a project that called for baking cupcakes in ice cream cones reached its peak, she was getting a submission every other week. In May, she posted a round-up of those pesky ice cream cone cupcakes of doom, contrasting Betty Crockers perfectly formed, impeccably frosted cones with a collection of images showing cake batter oozing out of the cones. As on Pintester.com, the not-so-perfect pictures are often labeled with the tagline NAILED IT. But unlike Mann, Pintesters Sonja Foust is decidedly un-crafty. Some readers have complained shed have more success if she used the correct ingredi ents or materials. But this is how I really do it, even if I wasnt pub lishing it on a blog, she said. Its not that Im doing it just for the cheap laughs, Im just really bad at this stuff. Even when she follows the instructions, failure is common. Take the Strawberries and Cream Mug Cake. The original version from babble.coms The Family Kitchen blog shows a single serving of cake tucked into a dainty white mug, topped with a swirl of whipped cream and a scattering of strawber ries. Fousts blog shows a lumpy, spongy mess she pried out of the mug with a spoon. I was pretty surprised and sort of torn between being disappointed that it didnt turn out and delight ed that it was going to make a good blog post, said Foust, who lives in Durham, N.C., and writes romance novels in addition to her blog. Despite her admitted lack of skills, Foust said she frequently attempted to make recipes and crafts she saw on Pinterest even before she had her blog. I have this disease where I look at something and think, Oh, that looks really easy, I can do that! she joked. Andrea Green knows the feeling. In fact, she said the words I can do that! out loud the first time she saw, on Pinterest, the custom mixed-media pieces made by artist Eleanor Mathis, who creates 3-D maps of states and other locations using wood, nails and string. All it is is nails and thread and a board. How hard could it be? said Green, of Lebanon, N.H. But in trying to make a modified version featur ing her home state, she ran into some trouble early on when the board she purchased cracked in half before she even picked up her hammer. Undeterred, she started over and ended up pleased with the final result. For Green, who grew up drawing, knitting and sew ing, Pinterest has been a source of inspiration. She started a blog, mykinda perfect.com, a year ago to share her projects. Sites poke fun at Pinterest-inspired craft fails ASSOCIATED PRESS A failed mitten made out of a shrunken wool sweater is too small to fit the craft creators childs hand.

Page Editor: Laura Hampson, 754-0427 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, AUGUST 26, 2012 3D'/,)(By KIMBERLY DOZIERAP Intelligence WriterWASHINGTON The Navy SEAL who wrote an account of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden under a pseudonym was identified Thursday as Matt Bissonnette, who retired from the Navy last summer. Bissonnette was first identified by Fox News. One current and one former U.S. military offi-cial confirmed the name, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss military personnel matters. The book, No Easy Day, is scheduled to be released Sept. 11, with the author listed under the pseudonym of Mark Owen. Penguin Group (USA)s Dutton imprint, the publisher, asked news organizations Thursday to withhold his identity. Sharing the true story of his personal experi-ence in No Easy Day is a courageous act in the face of obvious risks to his personal security, Dutton spokeswoman Christine Ball said in a statement. That personal security is the sole reason the book is being published under a pseudonym. Bissonnette also changed the names of the other SEALs in the account, the publisher says. Efforts to locate Bissonnette for comment were unsuccessful. Special Operations Command spokesman Col. Tim Nye said the retired SEAL could be endan-gered by being identified, which could also expose those active-duty SEALs the author worked with in the killing of bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan last year. The book and the authors name come out amid debate over the possible damage to U.S. national security by leaks in the media about top secret operations. Yet the book also comes at a time when special operations forces are prominently featured in the media as never before, even as the elite organiza-tions demand secrecy. A rash of new books trumpet special operators exploits. For example, American Sniper, a best-seller by recently retired SEAL Chris Kyle, details his 150-plus kills of insur-gents from 1999 to 2009. A handful of special operations advocacy groups have sprung up decrying leaks, but they identify themselves by name as for-mer members of some of the elite units, in an online campaign video that slams President Barack Obama for releasing details of the bin Laden raid. One of the advocacy groups is run by retired Navy SEAL Ryan Zinke, who prominently mentions his time years ago at SEAL Team 6, the top secret unit that carried out the bin Laden raid. Even Special Operations Command made an excep-tion to its normal reticence with the media when it signed off on the movie Act of Valor, which fol-lowed active duty SEALs carrying out training exer-cises that were turned into what looked like real action scenes for the film. The author of No Easy Day is slated to appear in shadow in promotional interviews for the book, meant to conceal his iden-tity. CBS News anchor Scott Pelley said Thursday eve-ning that 60 Minutes has interviewed the author and will air the interview on Sept. 9. The book is already listed as one of the top 10 books on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com. Beyond the risk he faces now that his iden-tity is known, he could also face legal trouble if the Pentagon determines that he disclosed classi-fied information in the account. U.S. military and intelligence officials say they do not believe the book has been read or cleared by the Defense Department. The Pentagon reviews publications by military members both active duty and retired to make sure that no classi-fied material is revealed. SEAL who wrote bin Laden raid book identified By SAMANTHA CRITCHELLAP Fashion WriterNEW YORK Theres no ivory tower surround-ing J. Crew CEO Millard Mickey Drexler. He visits every office, store and distribution cen-ter, and makes an effort to meet every new employ-ee, although hes always Mickey, not Mr. Drexler. Hell notice if light bulbs are too dim, or how long the water cooler has been broken. And its up to him to remember his cousins birthday, although one of his assistants jots down the note once he says it aloud and shell gently remind him later. There have to be some perks to being in charge of a company that has steadi-ly gained style cred since Drexler took over in 2003. Its also expanded from its signature prepster khakis and T-shirts that launched 30 years ago as a catalog-only business to a high-design collection of casual and dressy clothes in bold colors and prints in 287 free-standing stores, includ-ing its Madewell label, and is available in 103 countries online. Michelle Obama famously told comedian Jay Leno on his talk show during the 2008 presidential cam-paign that she would order J. Crew clothes online late at night. J. Crew lands in China this fall with its first retail presence outside North America in Lane Crawford department stores. The company even previews at the upcoming New York Fashion Week, sandwiched on the sched-ule between Tory Burch, Badgley Mischka and Vera Wang. Under Drexlers leadership, J. Crew has carved out a place in the fashion hier-archy thats just between trendsetter and accessible, and he seems to like living in that space. His name means something, and he can get a res-ervation at any restaurant he wants, but, he says, hell judge that hot, hip eatery by how they treat people on his staff when they call for their own table. I used to be not me, Mickey Drexler. I was me, just regular Mickey Drexler, the rest of my life, and I remember that, he says. It takes a little effort to keep up with Drexler, 68, who previously served as CEO of Gap Inc. and is a director at Apple. He jumps from topic to topic as if hes playing pingpong but never seems to take his eye off the ball. He gives more than a cursory glance to an email blast about the brands new ironless shirts for men. The pitch is good, although he personally isnt com-pletely sold on the ironless shirt he is, after all, in a slightly rumpled pinstripe button-down that is part of his daily uniform with dark-wash jeans and a navy sin-gle-breasted, double-vent Ludlow blazer but, he rationalizes, its what some customers want. And what customers want, he tries to deliver. Hes been known to personally respond to a letter from a shopper who has a problem or a suggestion. People think its special if we respond, but it shouldnt be that way. For us, it all starts at the store and with our customers. It nags at him that a sales associate reported moms have complained about the scratchiness of some embellished shirts in the companys childrens line. Drexler seems to be honest and candid with his employees, sometimes resulting in criticism but more often hell give a happy shout-out. During a recent tour of a J. Crew store in the Union Square neighborhood of Manhattan, not far from company headquarters, the staff isnt surprised to see him. They tell him the new bridal salon in that location is doing well, bet-ter than J. Crew bridal was doing as a stand-alone shop on Madison Avenue. When it comes to light that the Goldsign Jenny-style skinny jeans (with a $288 price tag) are popular with shoppers, he calls the office to congratulate the denim team. Put me on the loudspeaker, Drexler says. He makes regular announcements at head-quarters, sort of like the principal of a school. When you say something and a thousand people are hearing it, you hope you leave an impression. Im also sort of advertising. He adds, I dont know who listens and hears me, but someone is. In reality, all the people within striking distance seem to have at least one ear trained on what Drexler is saying. In the open-space office, people respond to his ques-tions without him even really asking. They also keep him moving on schedule, nudging him to this meeting or that. Drexler often takes the long route there, just to pass by others work spaces to check in on what theyre working on or the daily buzz. Having breakfast with investment bankers like he did on this day isnt his usual routine, but main-taining relationships with the business community is part of his job. Later, he was breaking bread with the companys 27 corporate interns. I gave them all an assignment yesterday. I said, If they had the power to make the department theyre working in bet-ter, what would they do? Drexler says. And I want individual answers, not a group. I want people who are looking to do things better. ... Im an agent of change all day long, and I want to meet other people like that. This talk about interns leads Drexler back to his management training days at Bloomingdales. He was in the program with the son of the CEO of Macys. Meanwhile, Drexler and his new wife to whom hes now been married 42 years had just bought a couch from Macys that left them cold. Too big, too expensive, all wrong, Drexler describes. They tried to return it, or even exchange it, but they didnt get any-where until Drexler tapped his relationship with the CEOs son. Not long after that, the couch was gone, but they still had to pay a return charge, and Drexler says he still thinks about it. Service drives a lot of my decisions, he says. This month J. Crew relaunched its personal shopping program, renam-ing it Very Personal Stylist. It will be available at all stores with an emphasis on accommodation, whether thats body type, budget or time. I didnt like the name personal shopper. That makes it sound like too much of a commodity and not personal enough, Drexler says. He also hopes the new approach takes the sting out of asking for help. Right now, not enough peo-ple seek the expert fashion guidance they can get for free, Drexler says. Maybe its because they think theyll be in for the hard sell or theyll end up with a look thats not really who they are, he muses, but everyone can use a second opinion and a little friendly advice. Drexler asks a new sales associate someone whos been on the job in the mens department for just two days what style of jeans he should wear. Vintage straight, the employee answers without hesitation. Yes, hes in the fashion industry, but hes not a fash-ion guy. He relates more to the hospitality business, Drexler explains, which is why he uses a lot of food metaphors and compares J. Crew to a fine restaurant or hotel more than he does other retailers. The No. 1 thing is the product. The goods have to be good, but I care about how you feel about it, he says, noting that he doesnt believe any advertising not the companys new ad strategy that broke in September fashion maga-zines or its 40 million cata-logs a year can compare with word of mouth. Treat others as you want to be treated, Drexler says. Isnt that in the Bible or something?J. Crew CEO Drexler emphasizes hospitality ASSOCIATED PRESSJ.

By STACEY PLAISANCEAssociated PressNEW ORLEANS True Blood fans can soon concoct their own blood-red beet bisque, crimson sweet tea and other Cajun delicacies inspired by the hit HBO vampire drama and compiled in a new cookbook. True Blood is filmed partly in Louisiana and is set in the fictional Louisiana town of Bon Temps. The states cuisine is often referenced in the series, where vampires and mor-tals mingle over bowls of okra gumbo, jambalaya, and red beans and rice. The cookbook, True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps, was compiled by Cajun chef Marcelle Bienvenu and is being released in bookstores on Wednesday, shortly after Sundays broadcast of the shows fifth-season finale. Im going to be honest with you, I had never seen the show before they asked me to do this cookbook, said Bienvenu, a chef from the Cajun town of St. Martinville, La., who lived in New Orleans for several years and now teaches culi-nary arts at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, La. I sat down and watched it with my notebook, and I was amazed how much food was mentioned in the series, she said. It was fun making the recipes come to life. I think people are still mystified by south Louisiana food. Theres still such a mystique about the food and culture here. True Blood stars reallife husband and wife actors Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer. Paquin plays the shows beloved heroine Sookie Stackhouse, a most-ly human waitress who falls for vampire Bill Compton, a Confederate veteran turned into a bloodsucker played by Moyer. In the cookbook, recipes are accompanied with pictures and excerpts from the series. For instance, a recipe for creamy crawfish dip is displayed among pictures from a scene in which Stackhouse drives to Shreveport, La., to see a werewolf but is instead greeted at the door by Debbie Pelt, a character who has twice tried to kill her. In the scene, Debbie offers Sookie a helping of crawfish dip. Besides food, the cookbook includes nearly two-dozen drink recipes with names like Tequila Moonrise, Lovin in the Coven and Moonshine Rising. The drinks were a lot of fun to make, said Bienvenu, who consulted a bartender friend from Thibodaux, La., to create the mixtures. She also used her students at Nicholls State University to test her food recipes, she said. Bienvenu said that while the recipes have been given names inspired by the series, these are real recipes for food we here in Louisiana eat all the time. I think people are really going to enjoy them. Bienvenu said True Blood, which is shown in some 50 countries world-wide, has been a great way to showcase Louisianas unique cuisine eats like gumbo, jambalaya and etouffee and ingredients like tasso, Andouille sau-sage, okra, cayenne pepper, yams and mirlitons. The shows season five finale is Sunday, and the network announced earlier this year that True Blood will be returning for a sixth season next year. James Costos, vice president of licensing and retail for HBO, said the cook-book was a natural exten-sion for the show, which already has a fragrance and beauty product line. The senses play a huge part in True Blood, Costos said. The cookbook is another way to tap into the carnal desires that are played out on screen. This isnt the first time HBO has merged a show with a cookbook. The net-work released a collection of recipes from the tables of Italian mob families in the long-running hit drama The Sopranos, and theres a cookbook due out next year based on the New Orleans-shot HBO series Treme.

DEAR ABBY: I have been dating Larry for a little over a year. During this time he has been in and out of work. Anytime we go anywhere or do any-thing, he never offers to pay. Even if he has money in his pocket, hell look the other way when a check arrives. Other times, he insists on Dutch treat. Larry says we were raised differently. I say hes cheap. When the holi-days come around, I never receive a gift or a card. I am a hardworking woman holding down two full-time jobs. Am I out of line for thinking a man should treat a woman? -PAYING DEARLY IN NAPLES DEAR PAYING DEARLY: I agree that you and Larry were raised dif-ferently. I also agree that hes cheap. However, the idea that a man should ALWAYS treat a woman is outdated. You signed yourself Paying Dearly. The ques-tion is, are you getting what youre paying for -and is it enough for you? If the answer is no, then scratch Larry. ******DEAR ABBY: My wife and I were sorting through some old things of mine and came across a wallet containing some pictures of my old high school girl-friend. Normally, I wouldnt think twice about tossing them, but in this case, she was someone I had stayed very close with (platonical-ly) until her untimely death several years ago. What is the protocol for throwing away things like this, when its someone you were close to who is now deceased? Im sure her par-ents wouldnt want them. My wife doesnt care either way if I keep them or not. -TO KEEP OR NOT TO KEEP DEAR TO KEEP OR NOT TO KEEP: Offer the pictures to your former girlfriends family because they might surprise you and consider them trea-sures. However, if theyre not interested and you cant bring yourself to put them in the trash, put them in the box in which you found them and let your family deal with them after youre gone. ******DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been mar-ried for 10 years. When we met, he was in a band and we did a lot of socializing, drinking, partying, etc. Over the years and two children later, I enjoy these activities less as the demands of parenting and full-time careers take top priority. My husband fre-quently makes the com-ment, You USED to be fun. I find it incredibly hurtful and have told him so, but he continues to repeat it. Is there any other way I can address this? -PARTY-POOPER IN NEW YORK DEAR PARTYPOOPER: Yes. The next time your husband says, You used to be fun, rath-er than become defensive, ask him to explain what he means. What EXACTLY does he miss? If he misses the carefree woman you used to be, find a sitter and schedule some regular adult time together. If its something more than that, you may need a mar-riage counselor. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Youll have trouble making a decision if you let your emotions take over. Back away if someone puts pressure on you. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put your heart on the line. Being open and hon-est will get you the answers you need to move forward. Love is highlighted and a change will take place if you get involved in social activities that interest you. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take your time, an impulsive move may be tempting, but it can turn into a costly affair. Focus on home, family and mak-ing your place comfortable. Serious situations require a thoughtful response. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take care of your health. A little rest, relax-ation and spending time with the ones you love will help you revitalize. Offer suggestions but dont cater to those who can do for themselves. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get in the game. Be a participant. Surprise everyone with your knowledge, ver-satility and desire to expand your interests. Stabilize your home life by making the changes youve been contemplating. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dont worry about whats happening at home when what you should be doing is taking action and pursuing what makes you happy. Redesign what you feel is your ideal situation and start building from the ground up. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Find out all you can before you leap into something that will change your life personally or profession-ally. You may feel impatient and in need of a change, but unless you have ironed out any pending problems, you cannot move forward. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Pursue your desires and interests passionate-ly. Your participation and actions will speak for you. Originality and understand-ing coupled with love and knowledge will allow you to take care of any situation you face with finesse and accuracy as well as bring stellar results. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Reconnect with people from your past who have something to offer that you can use or vice versa. Give-and-take will make your world much bet-ter. Changing your lifestyle or where you reside will lift your spirits and make you feel more at ease. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Emotional matters will escalate. Avoid conver-sations with demanding individuals wanting to add to your responsibilities. Concentrate on hanging on to your assets, not sharing them with someone unde-serving. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look over contracts or make a commitment to someone who has the potential to improve your life. Aggressive behavior may be required to secure what you want. Someone from your past will offer a workable solution. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Simplicity and mod-eration should rule your day.

6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, AUGUST 26, 2012 '/,)(By DAVID GERMAINAP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES The B-list rules Hollywoods fall and holiday movie season: Bond, Bella and Bilbo. Daniel Craig is back as James Bond in Skyfall, the super-spys first adven-ture in four years, one of the longest 007 hiatuses in the franchises 50-year his-tory. Kirsten Stewart returns for her swan song as Bella Swan, alongside vampire hubby Robert Pattinson and jealous werewolf pal Taylor Lautner in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, the fran-chise finale. And Bilbo Baggins goes jewelry shopping for an evil ring in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first installment in Peter Jacksons three-part prelude to his Academy Award-winning adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkiens The Lord of the Rings. Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Elijah Wood and others reprise their Lord of the Rings roles, but The Hobbit hinges on newcomer Martin Freeman as Bilbo. The filmmakers were so set on him that production halted for three months while Freeman returned to Sherlock, the British TV hit in which he plays Dr. Watson. It was sort of unheard of for a big-budget movie, but because we wanted him so badly, the studio supported us, and we made that pro-vision in our schedule, Jackson said. He carries the movie. You get that casting wrong and youre in huge trouble. Heres a look at other upcoming highlights:SEPTEMBER:Adam Sandlers in voiceonly mode as Dracula in the animated monster mash Hotel Transylvania. Joaquin Phoenix stars as a World War II vet mesmer-ized by a cult leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman) in The Master. For baseball fans, theres Trouble with the Curve, starring Clint Eastwood as an old-timer on a scouting trip with his daughter (Amy Adams). Time-travel geeks can watch Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a hit man trying to snuff his older self (Bruce Willis) in Looper, also featuring Emily Blunt. Gordon-Levitt underwent three hours of makeup each day to look more like Willis. He repeatedly watched his co-stars mov-ies and studied Willis dia-logue on his iPod. But the most productive thing was just spending time with him. Having din-ner, talking about music or whatever and getting to know each other, Gordon-Levitt said. Thats when I felt I was learning the most about what I could incorpo-rate into how I was going to play this character.OCTOBER:Liam Neeson returns as a violently over-protective family man in Taken 2. Brad Pitts a mob enforcer tracking rogue hoods in Killing Them Softly. Kevin James goes from lethargic science teacher to mixed martial-arts sensa-tion in the comedy Here Comes the Boom. Ben Affleck directs and stars in Argo, a rescue thriller about the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis. Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and a big ensemble take on mul-tiple roles in Cloud Atlas, an epic spanning centuries and genres. And Tim Burton resurrects an old friend with Frankenweenie, his animated update of a live-action short film he made in the 1980s, cen-tered on a kid who pulls a Frankenstein to revive his cherished, perished dog. Its like the first pure relationship you have as a child, if you have a good pet, Burton said. Also growing up loving, like, Frankenstein movies, theres something about a boy and his dog and a Frankenstein story that doesnt seem that dissimi-lar. It seemed like a weird wish-fulfillment connection that just made sense to me.NOVEMBER:Judi Denchs M steps up in a more pivotal role as spy master to Craigs 007 in Skyfall, in which Bonds loyalty to his boss is tested by revelations from her past. Steven Spielberg directs Daniel-Day Lewis as Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln. Keira Knightley and Jude Law star in a new take on Leo Tolstoys epic romance Anna Karenina. Denzel Washingtons a pilot who miraculously lands his damaged jetliner in Flight. A couple of animated tales debut for the holidays: Wreck-It-Ralph, with John C. Reilly providing the voice of a second-banana video game character strik-ing out on his own; and Rise of the Guardians, an adventure with Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and other mythical beings battling an evil spirit. Twilight has been a rarity for male-oriented Hollywood, a blockbuster franchise aimed almost exclusively at women. Bill Condon, director of the final two Twilight movies, recalls studio hand-wring-ing over Dreamgirls, his musical that became a hit largely because of female crowds. People were so concerned about who was going to go see it, Condon said. It was like, well, what if you can make a movie that 15-year-old boys dont care about and you still have an audience? That turned out to be true. I think its exciting when not every movies got to be aimed at just that one demographic.DECEMBER:The Hobbit has some action competition for the holidays in Tom Cruises Jack Reacher, with Katie Holmes ex playing a former military cop investigating a sniper case. Quentin Tarantinos Django Unchained stars Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio in a pre-Civil War bounty hunter saga. Among holiday comedies, Billy Crystal and Bette Midler play grand-parents at odds with their daughter (Marisa Tomei) in Parental Guidance; Seth Rogen goes on a road trip with his domineering mom (Barbra Streisand) in The Guilt Trip; and Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann revisit their marital woes as they reprise their Knocked Up characters in Judd Apatows This Is 40. Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway team for a big-screen adap-tation of the stage musical Les Miserables, based on Victor Hugos classic. A scheduling conflict forced Hathaway out of an ear-lier movie musical, The Phantom of the Opera. She now counts it a blessing, saying Les Miserables more than compensates. I dont know if I would have gotten Les Mis if I had done Phantom, Hathaway said. So maybe it was just the universes way of protecting me and getting to play a superior part.
