KASIE HUNTSTEVE PEOPLESAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS — Republican presidential candi-date Mitt Romney told veterans Wednesday that he’ll make find-ing jobs for them a priority as he accused Democratic President Barack Obama of weakening the nation’s defenses. Invoking the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks — referring to “a plume of smoke on a clear blue morn-ing” — Romney said protecting the country is the president’s highest duty as he worked to pitch himself as a potential com-mander in chief. He told veter-ans meeting in Indiana that he’s already started planning how to change veterans’ services to help them during a Romney administration. “I’m going to make reforming that agency a personal pri-ority,” Romney said, ticking through a series of policy prom-ises. He said he would allow GI Bill beneficiaries to attend any public school at in-state tuition rates, encourage states to cre-ate a common system to recog-nize credentials veterans have earned through military train-ing, and allow veterans to seek care from the active duty mili-tary’s TRICARE health system if they can’t get timely health services from the VA. Romney criticized the series of automatic defense cuts that will begin in January 2013 unless Congress acts to stop it. His vice presidential run-ning mate, Paul Ryan, voted to approve the legislation that authorized those cuts alongside reductions in domestic spend-ing. The American Legion speech in Indiana gave Romney an opportunity to assail his Democratic opponent far from where others have focused more on the candidate’s biog-raphy in order to sell the Republican nominee to the American people. In Tampa, Fla., speakers at the Republican National Convention — includ-ing 2008 presidential nomi-nee John McCain and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice — planned to highlight Romney’s foreign policy cre-dentials. Obama, campaigning in Virginia, accused his opponent of offering words but no action. “He likes to talk tough but he doesn’t have a lot of details when it comes to these critical issues,” the president said.

Curtis Devon English, 22, 127 SW Falcon Court, was charged with animal cruelty and resisting an officer in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $4,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriff’s Office reports, Deputy John Snipes was dispatched to a Falcon Court address for a call about the abuse of a dog. When he arrived at the scene he spoke to three witnesses who said they heard a dog outside their camper trailer make a loud, yelping noise as though it was hurt or in distress. A witnesses said he looked out the trailer window and allegedly saw English stand-ing outside the trailer hold-ing his dog up in the air and suspended off the ground by the rope attached to its neck. The dog appeared to be in distress and was being strangled, but continued wriggling around and attempting to get loose and away. The witness said he saw English punch the dog repeatedly in the head and ribs while suspended in mid-air and then English threw the dog to the ground and kicked it several times. One of the witnesses grabbed the dog, while another witness grabbed English and told him they were going to call the police. Republicans roar Baya & U.S. 90 Romney turns his attention to the nation’s veterans, defense Shooting review could be lengthy By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comSeveral questions continue to swirl around a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation into a Sunday shooting that left a Lake City childcare facility worker dead and a veteran law enforcement officer on administrative leave. Brent Lee Blevins, 23, was shot and killed after he and Florida Highway Patrol trooper Derek Maclaren, were involved in a confron-tation around 2 p.m. Sunday. The confrontation occurred following a high-speed chase along U.S. Highway 90 east of Live Oak. Authorities have not released any details regard-ing what instigated the chase or the subsequent shooting. FDLE officials say they cannot give any information regarding an active inves-tigation. “There is nothing new,” said Gretl Plessinger, FDLE spokeswoman, who would not elaborate on when she expected the investigation to be completed. “Each investigation is unique.” Capt. Nancy Rasmussen, Florida Highway Patrol public information officer, said Maclaren was placed on paid administrative leave following the shooting. She said it’s standard procedure for an officer involved in a shooting. “He gets three days administrative leave, which is not construed as disci-plinary process, it’s just because of the shooting,” she said. Maclaren could be back to work today. Blevins, worked at Happy House, a childcare facility in Lake City, where he had been employed for a year. Maclaren, 33, has been an FHP trooper since 2006. Rasmussen said Maclaren was not injured in the Sunday incident, but she would not release any details about the investigation. “FDLE is the lead investigation agency on this case,” she said, noting she’s read where it may take up to three months for the inves-tigation to be completed. Investigation of incident could take 3 months. Neighbors saw animal being punched, kicked. Workers cut away support beams from a 40-foot concrete light pole after a car slammed into it Wednesday on U.S. Highway 90. No one was hurt in the wreck. CrashJASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterDAVID ESPOAssociated PressTAMPA — Seizing the Republican National Convention spotlight, vice presi-dential candidate Paul Ryan welcomed “the calling of my generation” to help lead the country in tough times Wednesday night and pledged that Mitt Romney will not duck the difficult decisions needed to repair the economy if he gains the White House this fall. “After four years of getting the runaround, America needs a turnaround, and the man for the job is Governor Mitt Romney,” the 42-year-old Wisconsin law-maker declared in remarks prepared for delivery to the delegates. He spoke at a convention dogged by Tropical Storm Isaac, downgraded from a hurricane but still inflicting misery on millions along the nearby northern Gulf Coast. “We will not duck the tough issues; we will lead,” Ryan said. In a secondary role if only for a moment, Romney accused Democratic President Barack Obama of backing “reckless defense cuts” amounting to $1 trillion. Addressing the American Legion in Indianapolis, he said, ‘There are plenty of places to cut in a federal budget that now totals over $3 tril-lion. But defense is not one of them.” In Tampa, the Romney team scripted an economy-and-veterans-themed program and kept a wary eye on Isaac. The storm remained a threat to levees in the New Orleans area almost exactly seven years after the calamitous Hurricane Katrina. Inside the convention hall, delegates cheered a parade of party leaders past, present and — possibly — future. The presidents Bush, George H.W., elected in 1988, and his son, George W., winner in 2000 and 2004, were featured in an evocative video. Arizona Sen. John McCain, the party’s 2008 nominee, spoke on his 76th birthday and said he wished he’d been there under different circum-stances. And an array of ambitious young-er elected officials preceded Ryan to the podium, Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and John Thune of South Dakota among them. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza praised the Republican ticket in a speech that made no overt mention of Obama. “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will rebuild us at home and inspire us to lead abroad. They will provide an answer to the ques-tion, ‘Where does America stand?’” Ryan said in excerpts released in advance that he was accepting “the calling of my generation to give our children the America that was given to us.” He added, “The present administration has made its choices. And Mitt Romney and I have made ours: Before the math and the momentum overwhelm us all, we are going to solve this nation’s economic problems. “And I’m going to level with you: We don’t have much time.” As he spoke a pair of electronic boards tallied the nation’s growing national debt, Republican vice presidential nominee, Rep.

Marco Rubio says he will use his speech at the Republican National Convention to highlight the choice between President Barack Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney. Rubio said Wednesday that his speech, set for tonight, will point out the differing views that Obama and Romney have on business and the role of government in helping the economy. Rubio was also asked about former Florida Gov. Charlie Crists decision to endorse Obama. He said Crist can endorse whoever he wants, but then he joked that Crist was running out of parties to join. Crist switched from the GOP to independent because Rubio was ahead in polls leading up to the 2010 Senate primary. Rubio then beat Crist and a Democrat in the general election. Judge to finalize voter ruling TALLAHASSEE A federal judge says hell issue a permanent injunc tion against provisions in Floridas new election law that restricted voter regis tration drives. U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle said on Wednesday hed take that action once an appellate court sends the case back to him. Hinkle ordered a tempo rary injunction on May 31. It prohibited the state from enforcing the restrictions. They include a require ment that new voters reg istration forms be submit ted to the state within 48 hours of being signed. The order restored a previous 10-day deadline. The state filed a notice of appeal but subsequently reached a settlement with civic groups that had chal lenged the registration drive restrictions. The state and plaintiffs jointly requested the permanent injunction. The plaintiffs included the League of Women Voters and Rock the Vote. FBI: $5,000 reward for robber MIAMI The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification and arrest of a South Florida man dubbed the ninja robber. Authorities said Wednesday the man has held up at least 11 busi nesses in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Store surveillance photos show the man usually carries a semiautomatic handgun and points it at store employees, demanding money. One female clerk had the gun held to her head. Police say he frequently wears a dark ninja-style mask and clothes. The businesses targeted have been convenience stores and gas stations. One North Miami Beach food store has been hit twice by the man. Anyone with information should call the Miami FBI office at 305-944-9101. Scott says Fla. very fortunate KEY WEST Gov. Rick Scott says Florida has been very fortunate to avoid major damage from Hurricane Isaac and hopes tourists understand that. Scott visited two Florida Keys icons Wednesday to showcase that Floridas tourism businesses are ready to welcome visitors. He posed for photos with tourists at Key Wests Southernmost Point mark er and toured the Ernest Hemingway Museum before briefing reporters there. Isaac was a tropical storm when it skirted past Key West Sunday, leaving little impact in the Keys. Still, Scott said Florida was lucky, but concerned about possible economic damage from visitors stay ing away, especially during Labor Day weekend. Toddler beaten, mom arrested ST. PETERSBURG Police say a man is accused of beating a 2-year-old while the childs mother was out buying drugs. The Tampa Bay Times reports 23-year-old Anthony Prestero was arrested Saturday after tak ing the unconscious child to the hospital. Prestero told police the boy had fallen, but he was arrested after doctors said the injuries didnt match his story. The boys mother 33year-old Laura Fossett told police she left the child with her live-in boyfriend while she bought drugs. The newspaper reports Fossett had recently signed a safety plan with the Department of Children and Families in which she promised to never leave the child alone with Prestero. Rubio says he will point out differences in speech n Associated Press WASHINGTON A firsthand account of the Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden contra dicts previous accounts by administration officials, rais ing questions as to whether the terror mastermind pre sented a clear threat when SEALs first fired upon him. Bin Laden apparently was shot in the head when he looked out of his bedroom door into the top-floor hall way of his compound as SEALs rushed up a narrow stairwell in his direction, according to former Navy SEAL Matt Bissonnette, writing under the pseud onym Mark Owen in No Easy Day. Bissonnette says he was directly behind a point man going up the stairs in the pitch black hallway. Near the top, he said, he heard two shots, but the book doesnt make it clear who fired them. He wrote that the point man had seen a man peeking out of a door on the right side of the hallway. The author writes that the man ducked back into his bedroom and the SEALs followed, only to find the man crumpled on the floor in a pool of blood with a hole visible on the right side of his head and two women wailing over his body. Burlesque star Madison pregnant LAS VEGAS Burlesque performer and Las Vegas Strip star Holly Madison says shes going to be a first-time mom.

John Francis Thomas, 47, 2060 SE 172nd Terrace, Silver Springs and Robert Duke RJ Walker, 19, 2040 SE 172nd Terrace, Silver Springs, are being held in the Marion County Jail on multiple burglary charges in connection with the case. Sgt. Ed Seifert, Columbia County Sheriffs Office public information officer, said on Saturday a Marion County Sheriffs Office deputy saw a white Dodge Stratus, allegedly driven by Thomas, run a stop sign on Southeast 100th Avenue in Marion County. Thomas also was not wearing a seatbelt. The deputy attempted to stop the vehi cle, but Thomas kept driving. The deputy used a PIT maneuver which forced the driver to stop the car. Thomas got out and ran away, but the passenger in the vehicle, Walker, remained in the car. A Marion County Sheriffs Office K9 deputy eventually captured Thomas, bit ing him on the left leg. Thomas was taken into custody without further incident. At the scene, as authorities continued their investigation, deputies reportedly found a large amount of jewelry believed to have been stolen during burglaries. Seifert said detectives said there were several unsolved burglaries in Marion, Sumter, Columbia, Volusia, Lake and Alachua counties where the same mode of operation kicking in doors and the description of a vehicle match this case. He said Columbia County Sheriffs Office detectives are confident that Thomas and Walker are responsible for the nine burglaries in southern Columbia County. The residential burglaries have been occurring over the past two weeks, Seifert said. CCSO detectives are working close ly with the Marion County Sheriffs Office to recover any stolen property. Detectives will be charging Thomas and Walker with multiple counts of burglary and theft. He said additional charges are likely for Thomas and Walker as several North Florida law enforcement agencies actively investigate similar cases. From Staff Reports LIVE OAK The Suwannee River Water Management District (District) will deliver a total of $346,103.52 to 11 coun ties as Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) this year. The PILT program was created by the Florida Legislature to help reduce the fiscal impact to rural counties when the State or District acquires lands. Since land owned by the District is tax-exempt, PILT funds offset the loss of tax revenue when the District purchases property for flood control, water quality, water supply and natural resource protection. The District will pay PILT funds to counties until their popu lations reach 150,000. The PILT funding comes from the Legislature, enabling the District to make payments to its rural counties. The District is grate ful to our Legislative Delegation for their sup port in securing the fund ing that allows us to distrib ute the PILT checks to our communities, said District Executive Director Ann Shortelle. The following are totals that each county is sched uled to receive: Bradford: $15,416.77 Columbia: $40,100.89 Dixie: $21,647.39 Gilchrist: $44,392.72 Hamilton: $37,752.42 Jefferson: $9,223.41 Lafayette: $77,306.21 Levy: $30,401.84 Madison: $20,464.85 Suwannee: $30,429.59 Taylor: $18,967.43 District staff will dis tribute PILT payments to the county commissions through November.

T he Republicans gath-ered in Tampa have adopted the party’s most right-wing plat-form since the GOP was founded 158 years ago. Many news organizations went back and compared this platform with the party’s earlier positions, particularly those of 1980 on which Ronald Reagan ran. The Reagan platform carried a general endorsement of the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms. But the 2012 version opposes any restrictions on “the capac-ity of (ammunition) clips or magazines.” It also expands the circumstances under which Americans can kill each other by broadening the so-called “stand your ground” doctrine to a “fundamental right to self-defense wherever a law-abiding citizen has a legal right to be.” Well into the middle of the last century, the Republican Party enjoyed labor support, particularly among the skilled trades and railroad unions. Even in 1980, when the GOP and labor were growing apart, the party endorsed the right of unions to organize and engage in collective bargaining. In 1980, the GOP called for “dependable and affordable mass transit.” In 2012, the party sneered at mass transit as “social engineering.” The Reagan platform called for tolerance for non-English speakers, saying they shouldn’t be denied educa-tional and employment oppor-tunities because English was not their first language. The new platform reaffirms that “English is the nation’s official language.” It was left to House Speaker John Boehner to put the new guiding doctrine into perspec-tive, when he said he has never met anybody who actu-ally reads the party platform. ONE OPINION H istorians may someday call this week’s convention-hall events -the speech-making and backroom decision-making -the beginning of a change that reordered the way the world works. Indeed, many delegates may have already concluded just that. Partly because so many world-famous political figures showed up. And partly because of the most unconventional art the del-egates had to walk past to enter the convention hall: three clumps of twisted metal, formerly auto-mobiles driven by three Iranian nuclear scientists, blown up by perpetrators officially unknown. Beside each wreck were large photos of the scientists and their children. No, we aren’t talking about a convention hall in Tampa -but one in Tehran. Halfway around the world from where the U.S. political media’s big eye was focusing on the Republican National Convention and hanging on the words of presidential standard-bearer Mitt Romney, much of the rest of the world was focusing on a coinci-dentally parallel weeklong meet-ing of an organization called the Nonaligned Movement. This is no small fringe gathering that opened Sunday in Tehran. Delegates from 120 nations were reportedly attend-ing. The United States mounted a significant back-channel effort to dissuade world leaders from attending the summit. The Obama administration’s effort met with little noticeable success. Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh brought a delegation of 250 and report-edly planned to meet separately with Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and also with the summit’s hosts, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Egypt’s new president, Mohammed Morsi, changed his plans at the last minute and flew to the summit -a significant policy shift because Egypt ended its diplomatic relations with Iran after recognizing Israel in 1980. And perhaps most significantly, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon brushed aside the objections of the United States and Israel and decided to attend the summit as well. He showed the world he is strangely unper-turbed by the fact that Iran has for years ignored U.N. Security Council resolutions and obstruct-ed U.N. nuclear inspectors. “We, frankly, don’t think that Iran is deserving of these high-level presences that are going there,” State Department spokes-woman Victoria Nuland said in a statement. But whether Iran is deserving clearly was never of prime importance to the world leaders who chose to come to Tehran. Each came with an agenda of personal objectives that overrode their sense of geopolitical order. The U.N. secretary general, for example, bitterly disappointed at the failure of efforts to end the slaughter of civilians in Syria, wants to convince Iran to pres-sure Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad to resign and flee into exile. Can it be that summits such as this can replace the U.N.’s glass skyscraper as the place where global deal-making happens? Iran hopes so. Its supreme leaders portrayed themselves as victims of western persecu-tion and urged the Nonaligned Movement to oppose economic sanctions. And moving from trial balloons to real ones, they reportedly floated a balloon above Tehran’s main square, trailing this message: “Iran, a peaceful and kind nation.” But a more ominous message awaits. The International Atomic Energy Agency has concluded that Iran has sped up its nuclear program by installing hundreds of new centrifuges in a deep underground facility called Fordow, according to a story first reported by the Reuters news agency and then confirmed by The New York Times The facility is located on a military base near Qum. It is reportedly con-sidered invulnerable to military attack. Iran is also reported to be enriching its uranium to a purity level of 20 percent -but it is only for medical research, Iran says. Nuclear experts say it can be quickly converted to make a nuclear bomb. Not too far away from the Tehran summit, Israelis debate in public and private whether a pre-emptive military attack on Iran’s nuclear installations should be attempted and can succeed. The Times reports that Iran could build a crude nuclear weapon within months and that it will take Iran a couple of years to build a nuclear-capable warhead capable of being launched on a missile. That ultimate grim reality floated like a balloon in the atmo-sphere of the Tehran summit -unseen and unspoken, but under-stood by all in the neighborhood that is the Middle East.

Lines at movie theaters, book purchases and music downloads all point to a red tide in November. The new documentary, “2016 Obama’s America,” is one indi-cator of a fired-up conservative base. The $2.5 million feature examines the causes and conse-quences of President Obama’s policies, projecting them out through a grim second term. “2016” has been a surprise hit, earning over $10.5 million and generating long lines and applause wherever it is shown. It’s already the No. 6 all-time political documentary accord-ing to Boxoffice Mojo, having surpassed Michael Moore’s “Roger and Me” (No. 8 at $6.7 million) but still far behind such leftist standards as Mr. Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11” (No. 1 at $119 million) or Al Gore’s scary science-fiction drama, “An Inconvenient Truth” (No. 3 at $24 million). The film is based on Dinesh D’Souza’s character study of Mr. Obama, “Obama’s America: Unmaking the American Dream,” and other writings that explore the president’s cryptic background, the reasons for his unmerited success and the dan-gerous course he has charted in office. Whether Mr. Obama is tearing down America intention-ally or through sheer incompe-tence is something to be debated among the rubble of our once-flourishing civilization. Mr. D’Souza is also doing well on Amazon.com’s Election Heat Map, which shows where people are buying “red” and “blue” political books. “Obama’s America” is the No. 3 red book, behind Edward Klein’s “The Amateur” and Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing Lincoln.” What people don’t have on their Ipods are the collected speeches of Barack Obama — except for the unfortunate Queen of England, that is. W e’ve written a couple of times about the incom-plete nature of Mitt Romney’s tax reform proposal. The man nominated Tuesday as the Republican candidate for president has been specific about all the taxes he wants to abolish and reduce. He’s a lot more vague about how he would keep this from bankrupting the Treasury. His easy answer is he would “broaden the base” of taxable revenue. This sounds easy — plug an oil company loophole here, shut down a hedge fund dodge there. As Sen. Rob Portman, an Ohio Republican and Romney sup-porter, told reporters at the Republican convention on Tuesday, “It would be paid for by getting rid of a lot of the underbrush in the code.” Clear out the underbrush! Who could oppose that? Unfortunately, there is no way to broaden the indi-vidual income tax base with-out going after the biggest tax deductions and prefer-ences, which are widely used, wildly popular and defended by tenacious lobbies. They privilege employer-provided health insurance, mortgage interest, charitable deduc-tions and state and local income tax payments. Mr. Romney hasn’t hinted which of these he might seek to limit. Mr. Portman, one of the Republicans’ leading budget experts and an advocate of bipartisan fiscal reform, was more forthcoming at a forum sponsored by the Post and Bloomberg News. He suggested that one way to lower rates and yet not see revenue fall off a cliff would be to limit the total that any taxpayer could deduct, with-out eliminating any specific deduction. “And if you choose to give more to charities and want your charitable deduc-tion, that’s fine,” Mr. Portman said. “But then maybe your second home, you can’t get a mortgage deduction.” Whether such a plan would mollify political opposition, because every deduction would be saved to some extent, or unify opposition because every one would be threatened is an interesting question. President Obama has repeatedly proposed a similar idea, for upper-income taxpayers, and Congress has repeatedly shown zero inter-est. And the limits might have to be very constricting — less benign than Mr. Portman’s sunny description — if they were to make up for the rev-enue lost by Mr. Romney’s tax-cutting proposals. At least, though, it’s a step toward a substantive proposal. Unfortunately, Mr. Portman stressed that he was speaking for himself in floating it, not for the cam-paign. “I think what he’ll have when he’s elected — and I believe he’ll be elected — is he’ll have a mandate to do tax reform,” Mr. Portman said. “And then you go to Congress .?.?.” But how much of a mandate can it be if the candidate talks during the campaign only about the goodies he will deliver, and not at all about the accompanying pain? Given his position at the head of a party dominated by officeholders opposed to tax increases under any cir-cumstances, it’s not an unfair question.

Mitt Romney (left) talks with former Secretary of State Con doleezza Rice at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday in Tampa.ASSOCIATED PRESSSen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., is surrounded by reporters duri ng a tour of the convention floor at the Republican National Convention in Ta mpa on Wednesday. ASSOCIATED PRESSRepublican vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and wife, Janna, appear on stage at the Wisconsin d elegation’s Beers and Brats event, Wednesday in Tampa. approaching $16 trillion overall and more than $5 billion since the convention opened. Ryan’s vice presidential acceptance speech marked a prime-time national debut by a relatively young lawmaker laud-ed by fellow Republicans for his understanding of the complexi-ties of the nation’s budget. Romney tapped Ryan this month as his running mate, a selection that cheered conser-vatives who have doubted the presidential candidate’s own commitment to their cause. If Ryan’s selection was designed in part to appeal to conservatives, the convention was scripted to strengthen the ticket’s appeals among women, Hispanics and others who prefer Obama over the Republicans, as well as veterans who supported McCain in 2008. Romney delivers his own nationally televised acceptance speech Thursday night in the final act of his own convention. The political attention then shifts to the Democrats, who open their own convention on Tuesday to nominate Obama and Vice President Joe Biden for a second term. Deep into a two-week stretch of national gatherings, the race for the White House is in a sort of political black hole where the day-to-day polls matter little if at all as voters sort through their impressions. Only eight or so battleground states appear to be competitive, although Republicans say they hope to expand the campaign after Labor Day, particularly in industrial states struggling to recover from the worst economic recession since the Great Depression. As chairman of the House Budget Committee, Ryan is the architect of a plan to curb long-term deficits by reducing taxes and making deep cuts in accounts ranging from farm programs to education. He also advocates saving billions from remaking Medicare and Medicaid, the government’s health care programs for seniors and the poor. The Medicare changes, in particular, are potentially incen-diary in an election campaign. Democrats say that Romney, with his selection of Ryan, has accepted political ownership of a plan that would turn the program from one in which seniors’ medical bills are automatically paid into one in which the government would give them checks to purchase coverage at costs that would require them to dip deeper into their pockets. ___n Associated Press writers Steve Peoples in Indianapolis, Julie Pace in Charlottesville, Va., Jim Kuhnhenn in Washington and Philip Elliott, Beth Fouhy and Tamara Lush in Tampa contributed to this story.

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 2012 7A 7AHEALTH Teen pot use leads to IQ decline By MALCOLM RITTER and NICK PERRY Associated Press NEW YORK Teens who routinely smoke mari juana risk a long-term drop in their IQ, a new study suggests. The researchers didnt find the same IQ dip for people who became fre quent users of pot after 18. Although experts said the new findings are not defini tive, they do fit in with ear lier signs that the drug is especially harmful to the developing brain. Parents should under stand that their adolescents are particularly vulner able, said lead researcher Madeline Meier of Duke University. Study participants from New Zealand were tested for IQ at age 13, likely before any significant mari juana use, and again at age 38. The mental decline between those two ages was seen only in those who started regularly smoking pot before age 18. Richie Poulton, a study co-author and professor at the University of Otago in New Zealand, said the message of the research is to stay away from mari juana until adulthood if pos sible. For some its a legal issue, he said, but for me its a health issue. Pot is the most popular illegal drug in the world, with somewhere between 119 million and 224 million users between the ages of 15 and 64 as of 2010, the United Nations reported. Within the United States, 23 percent of high school students said theyd recent ly smoked marijuana, mak ing it more popular than cigarettes, the federal gov ernment reported in June. Young people dont think its risky, said Staci Gruber, a researcher at the Harvard-affiliated MacLean Hospital in Belmont, Mass. Gruber, who didnt par ticipate in the new work, said the idea that marijuana harms the adolescent brain is something we believe is very likely, and the new finding of IQ declines war rants further investigation. Experts said the new research is an advance because its methods avoid criticisms of some earlier work, which generally did not measure mental per formance before marijuana use began. I think this is the clean est study Ive ever read that looks for long-term harm from marijuana use, said Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, which helped fund the research. Ken Winters, a psychiatry professor at the University of Minnesota and senior scientist at the Treatment Research Institute in Philadelphia, said the new findings arent definitive, but they underscore the importance of studying how marijuana may harm young people. He had no role in the work. Meier and colleagues reported their work online Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. It was funded with governmental grants from the United States and Britain, and a foundation in Zurich. The study drew on survey data from more than 1,000 people in New Zealand, everybody born in the town of Dunedin during a yearlong span ending in 1973. In addition to IQ tests, they were interviewed five times between ages 18 and 38, including questions related to their marijuana use. At age 18, 52 participants indicated they had become dependent on marijuana, meaning that they contin ued to use it despite its causing significant health, social or legal problems. Ninety-two others reported dependence starting at a later age. Researchers compared their IQ scores at age 13 to the score at age 38 and found a drop only in those who had become depen dent by 18. Those deemed depen dent in three or more sur veys had a drop averaging 8 points. For a person of average intelligence, an 8-point drop would mean ranking higher than only 29 percent of the population rather than 50 percent, the researchers said. Among participants whod been dependent at 18 and in at least one later sur vey, quitting didnt remove the problem. IQ declines showed up even if theyd largely or entirely quit using pot at age 38, analy sis showed. The researchers got similar overall results for IQ decline when they compared participants who reported having used marijuana at least once a week on average for the past year. The researchers had no data on how much was used on each occasion or how potent it was. Dr. Duncan Clark, a researcher at the University of Pittsburgh, said hes not convinced that men tal decline is only in those who become dependent by age 18. He said the main lesson he sees in the overall study results is that to pre serve ones IQ, its best to avoid marijuana entirely, no matter what your age. The researchers also surveyed people who knew the study participants well at age 38. They found that the more often participants were rated as marijuanadependent in the surveys over their lifetimes, the more memory and atten tion problems were noticed by their acquaintances over the previous year. ASSOCIATED PRESS In an April 20, 2005 file photo, a University of Colorado freshman, who did not want to be identified, joins a crowd smoking marijuana during a gathering at Farrand Field at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colo. People who started using marijuana persistently before age 18 risk losing some of their IQ by the time theyre 38, a long-running study says. In contrast, even long-term chronic users who started after age 18 showed no such effect, suggesting the drug holds some particular toxicity for the developing brain. Tapping engineers, families for safety By LAURAN NEERGAARD AP Medical Writer WASHINGTON Head of the hospital bed raised? Check. Patients teeth brushed? Check. Those simple but often overlooked steps can help protect some of the most critically ill patients those on ventilators from developing deadly pneu monia. And if they knew about them, family mem bers could ensure the steps werent forgotten. Hospitals are rife with infections and opportuni ties for medical mistakes. Now, a nearly $9 million project at Johns Hopkins University aims to com bine engineering with the power of patients and their families to prevent some of the most common threats. The idea: Design patient safety to be more like a cars dashboard, which automati cally signals drivers when the oil needs changing or if a passenger forgot to buck le up, or like the countdown systems that make sure no step is missed when a satel lite is launched. Today, safe, quality care largely depends on indi vidual health workers remembering hundreds of steps without good ways to tell if they forget one, said Hopkins patient safety expert Dr. Peter Pronovost. Getting it right takes what he calls almost heroic efforts. And too often, the peo ple best able to spot early warning signs patients and their families are treated as passive bystand ers rather than encouraged to participate in their care, he said. Who knows better than the family? asked Dr. George Bo-Linn of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundations new Patient Care Program. The foundation, cre ated by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, announced Tuesday that it is funding the Hopkins work as the first step in a planned 10year, $500 million effort to improve patient safety and family engagement in hos pitals around the country. Separately, the Institute of Medicine has signed on to help, partnering with the National Academy of Engineering, to bring together top experts on how to design safety systems. Sometimes the failure to merely discuss treat ment with patients or their families causes the harm. Consider Nicole D. James, a commercial property manager in Elkridge, Md., who undergoes frequent overnight hospital stays to treat the intense pain of sickle cell anemia. One such visit turned into a miserable two-week stay when the ER doctor added a powerful antibi otic to James usual pain treatment without telling her first a drug that worsened her sickle cell crisis. It turned out the doctor had spotted a shadow on James lung X-ray that he thought was pneumonia but that she could have told him, and her regular physi cian confirmed, really was old scar tissue.

Strauss, D.O.,F.A.C.O.I MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical Writer West Nile virus cases are up 40 percent since last week and may rival the record years of 2002 and 2003, federal health officials said Wednesday. So far this year, 1,590 cases of the mosquito-borne disease have been reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and 66 deaths. About half of the cases are serious illnesses, and the CDC considers those the best indicator of West Nile activity because many mild cases do not get reported and their symptoms may not even be recognized. Typical symptoms are fever, headache and body aches, and most people get better on their own in a few days. Less than 1 percent develops neurological symp toms such as stiff necks and even coma and paralysis. Based on reports of West Nile so far this year, we think the numbers may come close to those of 2002 and 2003, when nearly 3,000 severe illnesses and more than 260 deaths occurred each year, said the CDCs top expert on the disease, Dr. Lyle Petersen. Health officials think that West Nile activity will peak in mid-to-late August, but likely will continue through October. Because symptoms can takenweeks to appear, reporting cases lags behind when people were infected. The disease first appeared in the United States in 1999. Officials say this years early spring and hot sum mer may have contributed to the current boom in cases. Mosquitoes get the virus from feeding on infected birds and then spread the virus to people they bite. All states except Alaska and Hawaii have found West Nile virus in people, birds or mosquitoes this year. Texas has been the hardest hit, accounting for half of the cases reported to the CDC. Im not convinced that we have peaked. We may have plateaued, said Dr. David Lakey, commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services. The CDC also says it does not expect Hurricane Isaac to have much of an impact on cases in Southern states. Heavy storms can wash out mosquito breeding grounds, although standing water can aid breeding, Petersen said. Many other factors, such as the population of infected birds, influence the severity of West Nile outbreaks. West Nile cases rise 40 percent in 1 week Dead mosquitos are lined up waiting to be sorted at the Dallas County mosquito lab in Dallas. Federal health officials said Wednesday that West Nile virus cases are up 40 percent since last week and may rival the record years of 2002 and 2003. ASSOCIATED PRESS

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIn high school football the style of play can vary from week to week. Columbia High opened up against a run-oriented team in Santa Fe High during the kickoff classic. Baker County will be a much different attack than the Tigers had with a game-plan that relies primarily on the passing game. “They’re a spread team with single back backfield sets,” Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. “They’ll put the running back in gun strong and weak. They’ll do some different things out of those. Without a bunch of tape to scout, we don’t have a full idea, but from what we saw on tape they only ran the ball seven times out of 30 plays. They’ll try to establish the pass.” One of the biggest matchups this week will be how the Columbia offensive line defends CeCe Jefferson. Jefferson was named a freshman All-American last season and is drawing inter-est from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Florida and South Carolina. He tallied 22.5 tackles and 10 sacks during his freshman year. Columbia faces spread offense against Wildcats.

And when the season opener is over, No. 23 Florida prob-ably will decide between the two. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease said he’s not sure the team’s two-quar-terback system is viable beyond Saturday’s game against Bowling Green, meaning the Gators likely will choose between Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel before traveling to Texas A&M for the Southeastern Conference opener. “That’s my gut feeling,” Pease said. “I don’t know if it’s sustainable from there. It depends how they play, I guess, and what they create.” The sophomores have battled for the starting job since spring practice. Coach Will Muschamp said each will play a quarter in the first half Saturday, and then the coaches will decide how to progress after halftime. Pease credited Brissett and Driskel with making strides in the offseason, and said that playing both is the fair thing to do. “I think it would be difficult to name a starter right now,” Pease said. “What would you be telling the other kid? If they had sepa-rated each other, yeah. But GATORS continued on 2B

Still, Allen was able to pick out some things on offense despite 34 points in just over a half of play that Columbia must improve on. “Offensively, we have to get better,” Allen said. “We had situations where we didn’t block right or make the right throw. We have to make better decisions and we’ll have a chance to do that again, be a little better. We had too many lulls, guys walking around. We have to get that fixed. They’ll get that reinforce-ment and continue to get better.” CHS From Page 1B GATORS: Have a decision to make Continued From Page 1Bthey’ve both made major progress and done good things. We have a situation in a game where we can play them.” The Gators expect to pick a starter later in the week. Pease suggested they might flip a coin. Brissett joked that he figured they would decide it by playing cards. In reality, starting the game means little. Each quarterback will get 15 min-utes, maybe just a series or two, to show what he can do in front of 90,000 at The Swamp. “This is our biggest opportunity and our big-gest chance,” Driskel said. “They’re going to go with the guy who is going to give them the best chance for the rest of the season.” Both guys had a chance to shine last season. Driskel struggled in place of injured starter John Brantley against Alabama, and Brissett was mediocre while starting the next two weeks. They were freshmen then. They have one less excuse now. “At the end of the day, it’s just going out and play football,” Brissett said. “It’s time to play. No more time for interviews and talk, just go out and have fun.” Although the quarterback race has gotten most of the attention the last six months, the reality is that if things go the way Muschamp hopes, neither will be asked to do too much. Muschamp is simply looking for a game man-ager, not a gun slinger. The Gators want to be a run-first offense, with Mike Gillislee, Mack Brown and Matt Jones handling much of the workload. And when Brissett and Driskel do throw, they just need to distribute the ball quickly and accurately. Pease said Brissett needs to work on his pocket pres-ence. “He’s comfortable in the pocket,” Pease said. “He likes to sit in there and hold it and try and throw the ball downfield because he can throw off balance. He’s got a strong arm. He can flick it. And, hey, if it’s not there, you better pull it down and go. You know, make a quick decision and go vertical.” What about Driskel?“Really with him, because he’s not afraid to run, really protecting himself on the move,” Pease said. “Sometimes he thinks he’s a fullback in there.”


DEAR ABBY: I am 20 years younger than my husband. I am also attrac-tive and sexually available to him. We have a great relationship except for one thing. I have caught him emailing women he met at work, inviting our neighbor to go with him on a motor-cycle ride and heard stories about him asking women on dates. But the worst was when I found out he was calling a woman every day and going to her house when I was at work. When I confronted him he said nothing sexual happened, but he moved out for a month. Why does he feel he has to have other women? I really believe some men are cheaters no matter what. Oh, yeah -I’m his fourth wife. He cheated on the others, too. How can I make him want only me? -CHEATED ON IN THE MIDWEST DEAR CHEATED ON: You can’t. It may give you some comfort to know that the behavior you have described has nothing to do with you or your level of desirability. It is COMPULSIVE. You were naive to think if you married a serial cheater that he would be a faithful husband to you. The only person who can “make” him think differently is him, and before that can happen, he will have to realize he needs to change. DEAR ABBY: I have been a single mother for seven years raising a won-derful 16-year-old daughter. She is an honor student, works part-time and is very mature. I am dating an older man, “Gary,” who has grown children. Gary feels my daughter is old enough to spend a couple of nights a week alone in our house, while I spend the night with him. His house is 14 miles away. I live in a safe neighbor-hood, but the idea of leaving her alone makes me very uncomfortable. This is caus-ing a rift between Gary and me. He feels I am having a hard time “cutting the apron strings.” Is he right? -SINGLE MOM IN THE MIDWEST DEAR SINGLE MOM: Inform Gary you are not ready to “cut the apron strings” because you don’t want your relationship with your daughter to turn to shreds. Although you say your daughter is mature, you are responsible for her safety and welfare until she turns 18. And that includes setting a good example. DEAR ABBY: I’m expecting my first child in three months and I am defi-nitely showing. I work in a retirement community, and every day one or more of the residents makes it his or her business to tell me I’m “just getting SOOO BIG!” and then asks if I’m sure “there aren’t twins in there.” What’s the appropriate response to people who make unwelcome com-ments about my size? I want to tell them that stating the obvious is unnecessary. They wouldn’t comment about someone’s size who wasn’t pregnant, so why is it acceptable in my case? -EXPECTING IN MARYLAND DEAR EXPECTING: Although you find the com-ments unwelcome, I’m sure the residents are only trying to be friendly and join in the excitement of another life coming into the world. They are not meant to be insulting and you shouldn’t regard them in that light. All you should do is smile, pat your tummy and say, “Not according to the sonogram!” and move on. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Share your feelings and your plans for the future. Someone you work alongside will let you know if you are not being real-istic. Weigh the pros and cons, but base your deci-sion on your abilities, not someone else’s. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t give in to a bully when you are far smarter and more capable. Saying no will give you greater control and the feeling of power. Love is in the stars, and letting someone know how much you care will bring good results. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let responsi-bilities overwhelm you. Emotional confusion will set in regarding matters pertaining to home, family and your status. A change may be required, but it shouldn’t cost you. Clear the air, but don’t pay for someone else’s mistake. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take a trip or sign up for a seminar, tradeshow or something that will inspire you to make some much-needed changes at home or at work. Love is in the stars, and more time spent with someone spe-cial will ease your stress. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Generosity will help con-nect you to people who have something to offer. A money deal with an unusu-al twist will entice you, but before you take part, find out how much input you will have in the outcome. A trip will pay off. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be honest about your abilities and what you have done in the past. Someone will be quick to remind you of some of your less favorable moments if you brag or try to control a sit-uation that needs expertise you can’t offer. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will be a magnet for information. Listen up; the knowledge you receive will help you diversify and excel. A change in a part-nership is likely to occur. Don’t let anyone bully you. Take control and make what you want very clear. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t trust anyone who promises unrealistic offerings or results. Make the changes that suit your needs and that will allow you to remain in control of your future prospects. Take competition by sur-prise by offering some-thing unique. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Add a little excitement to your life. Communicating with peo-ple who share your enthu-siasm and energy will lead to an opportunity to join a team or partnership on the rise. Make adjustments at home that suit your cur-rent lifestyle. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Personal invest-ments can pay off, but only if you stick to what works for you instead of being enticed to follow someone else. Emotional connec-tions must not be allowed to interfere with your financial dealings. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): A false sense of belonging will lead to per-sonal problems. Try not to judge or to make assump-tions that will cause fric-tion with someone you love. You must secure your personal relationships by doing your best to make your home and family inviting. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get serious about your professional goals. Talk to anyone in a posi-tion to help you advance. Socializing and celebrating late in the day will help build your confidence and improve your personal life. Honesty will alleviate con-fusion. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

(See store for details) (See store for details) (See store for details) SEC remains loaded with fierce pass rushers By JOHN ZENOR Associated Press The Southeastern Conference appears poised to maintain its reputation as the Sack Exchange Club. The SEC once again fea tures an array of hard-toblock pass rushers includ ing the freakishly fast Barkevious Mingo at LSU, South Carolinas twin tow ers Jadeveon Clowney and Devin Taylor and Georgia All-American Jarvis Jones. They bring speed, size and nifty moves to their dogged pursuit of quarter backs and are a trademark of a league that has won six straight national titles. Thats what separates the SEC from every other league is having guys that can put their hand on the ground not just the front four but the next four on the depth chart and can get after the quarterback, said David Pollack, a for mer Georgia All-American defensive end and current ESPN analyst. Its the great debate, is it that SEC quarterback play isnt great or is it great defensive lines? Its tough for any quarterback in any conference to throw off their back. Theyre not going to be very success ful. Thats why the SEC separates itself as far as defense. Five SEC defenders ranked among the nations top 16 in sacks last sea son, and 10 in the top 50. The league ranked second among the six BCS con ferences in sacks per pass attempt, bringing down quarterbacks once for every 13.3 passes thrown. The Big East led the way at 11.9 while the Atlantic Coast Conference, Big 12, Big Ten and Pacific-12 all averaged more than 16 attempts between sacks. All that was before Texas A&M joined the SEC. The Aggies led the nation with 51 sacks last season, nearly four a game. Florida offensive coordi nator Brent Pease returns to the league 10 years after a stint at Kentucky. The challenge remains the same: Finding ways to block defensive lines loaded with top recruits. I think even when I wasnt coaching in the SEC, that has always been the thing in recruiting, that the difference is the kids up front, said Pease.
