LC firefighters delay charity boot drive Police arrest man for lewd conduct with 13-year-old First Lady Michelle Obama addresses the Democratic Natio nal Convention in Charlotte, N.C., on Tuesday. Michelle Obama’s message: The President is just like you By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City man, arrested Monday morning, faces sexual offense charg-es after he told authorities the devil entered his body and he tried to rape a 13-year-old girl. Gerome Leon Robinson, 18, 981 NE Cherry Lane, was charged with lewd or lascivious exhibition (intentionally expos-ing his genitals in the presence of a victim less than 16 years old) and battery in connec-tion with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $55,000 bond. According to Lake City Police Department reports, officer Garrett Register was dispatched to a Northeast Cherry Lane address Monday morn-ing in reference to an incident that occurred Sunday. Once at the address a 13-year-old told Register that Robinson assaulted her. The victim told authorities that she was walking down Cherry Lane to her grandmother’s house and Robinson came from his yard and asked whether he could hangout, but she refused and Robinson allegedly pushed her into the backyard and held her against her will. The victim said she told him “no” and “stop” several times, but Robinson reportedly held her against his house and began taking off his clothes until he was completely naked. He then attempted to pull her clothing off. The victim was able to push Robinson to the ground and left. Robinson fol-lowed the victim but was stopped by his mother and taken home. Register spoke to Robinson about the incident and Robinson said the vic-tim came over and they walked into the back yard and “the devil tried to rape her in my body” and “the devil took over again and almost raped her and again I tried to stop him but failed.” Register reported that due to the statements from both parties, Robinson was arrested and taken to jail. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLake City Fire Department firefighters were noticeably absent from local intersec-tions this weekend after prom-ising to collect donations for the Muscular Dystrophy Association during the organi-zation’s 2012 Boot Drive. “We work for the fire department and things got busy,” said Trey Beauchamp, Lake City Fire Department firefighter. “We had the annual physicals come up and they were sched-uled during the same time and we were unaware until the MDA (drive) and when it all came together we realized it. Between that, training, running calls and lack of man power, it (collecting donations) didn’t happen. We’re deeply sorry and we’re going to get back with MDA and see whether we can go back out at a later date.” According to Lake City Fire Department reports, the fire department responded to 11 calls between 5 p.m. Friday and 5 p.m. Monday. Beauchamp said he will contact the department’s MDA representative and go out and collect at a later date. “These dates didn’t match with us,” he said. “This was shift by shift and it was the perfect storm and each shift it just didn’t work out. We under-stand the MDA is important, but sometimes things fall into place where you just can’t go and that’s what happened. It wasn’t anything where people refused to go; it just didn’t work out.” The Boot Drive donations were scheduled to be collected to help fight neuromuscular diseases. The fire department has been collecting funds dur-ing Boot Drives for about 40 years. Lake City Fire Department firefighters are members of the International Association of Fire Fighters union and col-lecting the funds for the MDA Boot Drive is known as a union function.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA teenager was shot in the leg Sunday morning while attending an unauthorized event at the Columbia County Women’s Club. Authorities were unable to appre-hend and continue to search for the shooter. The victim, who is a juvenile whose identity was not released, was shot while attending the party at the club, located at 655 NE Martin Luther King St. According to Lake City Police Department reports officers were called to the Women’s Club at approximately 1:09 a.m. due to someone being shot. When officers arrived they found a male juvenile victim who had been shot in the leg as a result of a verbal argument he had with another person. The person who shot him has not been identified and the shooting victim was taken to the hospital by EMS and treated for non-life threatening injuries. Investigation by on-scene officers revealed that no one was supposed to be in the building, according to Willa Veda Cooley, manager of the Columbia County Women’s Club. The front door of the building was locked and Cooley unlocked it for authorities, allowing officers to search the building for a suspect. During the search the rear door of the building was found to be kicked-in, reports said. Cooley said the club was rented out ear-lier in the evening, but the party was shut down before 7 p.m. and the club was properly locked.Group of more than 100 thought to be in building.SHOOTING continued on 3AASSOCIATED PRESS By JULIE PACEAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. — Michelle Obama’s message: President Barack Obama is just like you. “Barack knows the American Dream because he’s lived it,” the first lady told the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday in an address intended to reassure voters that her hus-band share their values — hard work, perseverance and opti-mism — while also drawing a contrast between him and Mitt Romney. Mrs. Obama never mentioned the president’s Republican chal-lenger, who grew up in a world of privilege and wealth. But the point was clear as she weaved a tapestry of their early years together, when money was tight and times were tough, when they were “so in love, and so in debt.” She reminisced about the man who now occu-pies the Oval Office pulling his favorite coffee table out of the trash and wearing dress shoes that were a size too small. And she told stories about a presi-dent who still takes time to eat OBAMA continued on 6A First Lady speaks on the first night of convention.

Associated Press Ex-NFL star Strahan named Ripas co-host NEW YORK F ormer football star Michael Strahan joined Live! With Kelly as permanent co-host on Tuesday, fulfilling a joking prophecy he made to Regis Philbin more than four years ago. The gap-toothed former New York Giant jogged onto the morning show set and picked up co-host Kelly Ripa in a bear hug, lifting her off her feet. He replaces Philbin, who left last November. Strahan was the survivor in a series of on-air tryouts of poten tial co-hosts since Philbin left, and his hiring has been an open secret for the past two weeks. Strahan appeared relaxed and amiable on his first day and drew ahhhs from women in the studio audience when he presented Ripa with a dozen red roses. Its so nice to have a co-host liter ally sweep you off your feet, Ripa said, and I know that he can bench press me if he wanted to. Ripa played a clip of Strahans first appearance on the show in 2008, shortly after the Giants had won the Super Bowl. Philbin asked Strahan what he would want to do after retir ing from football and Strahan said that Philbins job looked pretty good. I was joking, Strahan said on Tuesday, and Im glad the joke came true. Philbin was the original Live! host for more than 28 years, with Ripa joining him in 2001. Strahan said Philbin set the benchmark. I am in awe of him, he said. The Green Mile actor Duncan dead at 54 LOS ANGELES Michael Clarke Duncan was one big, irresistible jumble of contradictions. His presence was formidable, even intimidating: The former bodyguard had a muscular, 6-foot-4 frame, but it was topped by the brightest of mega watt smiles. His gravelly bari tone was well-suited to everything from animated films to action spectacles, but no matter the role, a warmth and a sweet ness was always evi dent underneath. The prolific character actor died Monday at age 54. Duncan died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he was being treated for a heart attack, said his fiance, reality TV personality Rev. Omarosa Manigault. Singer R. Kelly promises return to explicit music NEW YORK R.

Kelly has such a unique tal ent, and Ive been blessed to be able to do all type of genres of music ... Im exploring my gift right now.

BETH FOUHY Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. When Bill Clinton takes the convention stage in prime time Wednesday to praise President Barack Obama, it will be the most visible step on a path toward reconcili ation for two former rivals whose political fortunes are now inextricably linked. That Obama would choose the former president for such a high-profile speaking spot and that Clinton would accept seemed unfathom able in 2008, when the two clashed bitterly during the Democratic nomination showdown between Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former presidents wife. Even though Hillary Clinton now serves as Obamas secretary of state, resent ments between the current and former presidents have been slow to ebb. But now, with the Democratic incumbent locked in a tight race with Republican Mitt Romney, Obama has fully embraced Clinton as a political partner in hopes of capturing the former presidents uncanny knack for political survival against tough odds. President Clinton has an economic record sec ond to none, Obama cam paign manager Jim Messina said at a briefing Tuesday hosted by ABC News and Yahoo. Hes a very credi ble messenger ... hes going to deliver a very compelling speech. Obama called Clinton in July and asked him to give the speech that would place the presidents name in nomination. Clinton accept ed enthusiastically, aides to both men said. If the arrangement seems like a forced marriage, its also a mutually beneficial pairing that brings Clinton back to the national political forefront and lends Obama the validation of the partys most popular elder states man. With the economic recov ery still tepid and unem ployment stubbornly high, Obama campaign officials are eager to portray the presidents economic poli cies as mirroring those of his Democratic predeces sor. Many voters remember Clintons tenure as a period of prosperity. The economy added some 22 million new jobs during his two terms in the White House from January 1993 to the start of 2001 and Clinton left office with a balanced federal bud get and surplus. But its not a one-way proposition, as Clinton needs an Obama win in November to preserve his own legacy. From President Clintons perspective, if Romney were elected hed repeal everything Clinton ever did and everything he wants to advance, longtime Clinton adviser Paul Begala said. He and President Obama share an economic philoso phy ferociously focused on the middle class, and he believes Obama has us on the right track. Begala also serves as senior adviser for Priorities USA Action, an independent group supporting Obamas re-election that has strug gled to compete financially with similar Republicanleaning groups. Clinton has signed on to help the group and did his first event in August, briefing donors on the political landscape. His assistance helped the group raise about $10 million in August, its best monthly haul. Clinton stars in an Obama campaign commercial cur rently running in battle ground states. In the ad, the former president suggests that Romney would return the country to George W. Bush-era economic policies while affirming Obamas approach that he argues mirrors his own. President Obama has a plan to rebuild America from the ground up, Clinton says, adding, Thats what happened when I was president. To be sure, Clinton hasnt always been a model sur rogate for the Obama cam paign. The former president once praised Romneys sterling business creden tials at Bain Capital, the private equity firm where Romney amassed a large fortune. The remark con tradicted the Obama cam paigns effort to paint the GOP nominee as a plutocrat who cares more about gen erating profits than creating jobs. Clinton also broke with Obama on tax policy, sug gesting George W. Bush-era tax cuts for higher income earners be extended at least temporarily. Obama has pledged to allow the cuts to expire as a way to cut the federal deficit. Clinton later walked back that comment, but Republicans seized on it to suggest he was siding with the GOP on taxes. Democrats hope Clintons seal of approval might also extend to constituencies Obama has struggled to win over. A recent Fox News poll found a nearly 20-point gap among white voters for the two men Clinton is viewed favorably by 61 per cent of white voters, Obama by 42 percent. Among inde pendents, just 46 percent have a favorable view of Obama while 64 percent view Clinton favorably. Mindful of the former presidents appeal to those groups, the Romney campaign has tried to coopt Clintons record as a weapon to use against Obama. Theyve done so most notably in a TV ad claiming Obama has tried to strip the work requirements from welfare, which was a key component of the welfare reform law Clinton signed in 1996 and which remains one of his signature accom plishments. Clinton released a state ment saying the ad was not true an assessment shared by independent factcheckers. Its been an uneasy partnership for Obama and Clinton, two political heavyweights whose styles and political instincts often conflict. Tempers flared between the two in 2008, leading to accusations of race baiting and recrimina tions. Clinton dismissed Obamas claims that he was a stronger opponent of the Iraq war than Hillary Clinton, calling it a fairy tale. That angered some black leaders who contend ed that Clinton was dimin ishing Obamas quest to be the nations first AfricanAmerican president. Clinton denied the accusation. Obama upset the Clinton campaign when he suggest ed that President Ronald Reagan, a Republican, had changed the trajectory of America in a way Clintons presidency had not. Bill Clinton has enjoyed success and riches since leaving the White House, delivering paid speeches and traveling the globe doing humanitarian work on behalf of the foundation that bears his name. In 2010, Obama enlisted Clinton and Bush to lead efforts to help Haiti recover from an earth quake that produced wide spread devastation. n Associated Press Writer Julie Pace in Charlotte and AP deputy director of polling Jennifer Agiesta contributed to this report.

When Bill Clinton takes the convention stage to endorse Barack Obama Thursday, it will be a landmark step on a path to reconcilia tion for two former rivals whose political fortunes are now inextricably tied. Clinton, Obama set aside rivalry for election ASSOCIATED PRESS From staff reports The Lake City Police Department has launched an investigation after they were sum moned to a local hos pital where a man told them he was shot while walk ing home Monday night. According to Lake City Police Department reports, officers were called to Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center around 10:30 p.m. due to a man being shot who had non-life threatening injuries. The victim, Joseph J. Wellington, 21, told authori ties he was walking home around 10:15 p.m. Monday near the overpass of Northwest Main Boulevard when the incident occurred. Wellington told authori ties as he was walking he heard several gun shots from an unknown location and he took off running. As he was running he said he began feeling pain and numbness in his leg and discovered he had been shot. Wellington flagged down the next passing car and was given a ride to the emergency room where he was treated for his wound. During the course of the investigation, Wellington was unable to provide the name of the street where he was walking or give any vehicle/suspect informa tion. Officers searched sev eral areas underneath the overpass but were unable to local a crime-scene, reports said. Man says he was shot in leg By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com City officials adopted the 20122013 financial plan Tuesday as they prepare to end this fiscal year later this month. The officials adopted the pro posed millage rate, the 2012-2013 fiscal budget and the citys oper ating budget after public hear ings. No comments were made during the public hearings on the proposals. City officials will levy a 3.9816 millage rate in the city next fiscal year. The 3.9816 mills, which is the same millage rate the city lev ied this fiscal year, is for each $1,000 of assessed value on all real property and tangible per sonal property in the city for ad valorem taxes for calendar year 2013. The funds generated will fund expenses for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1 and ending Sept. 30, 2013. The 3.9816 mills represents a decrease of 4.516 percent from the rolled-back millage rate of 4.1699 mills as defined by Florida Statutes. Although the city will levy the same millage rate as last year, the property values in the city have decreased by an estimat ed $30 million, so less funding will be collected in ad valorem taxes. City Councilman George Ward thanked the city staff for its work on the budget. Its a trying year as it has been the last couple of years and I think staff did an outstanding job on the budget, he said. City officials also adopted the fiscal budget for 2012-2013, which is $51.5 million, following a public hearing where no one from the public offered comment. In addition to setting next years fiscal budget, city officials also unanimously adopted the 2012-2013 fire protection assess ment rates which increased across the board. The single family residential rate increased by $22.89 per household. The new fire assessment rate is $194.01 for a single family resi dential dwelling, up from 171.12 in 2011-2012. The multi-family residential rate also increased for 2012-2013, to $133 per dwell ing unit. In 2011-2012 the multifamily residential rate was $117 per dwelling. The hotel motel fire protection rate for hotel/motel went from $.0668 to .0758 per foot; the com mercial rate went from $.1363 to $.1546 per foot; the industrial/ warehouse rate went from $.0725 to $.0822 per foot and the vacant/ agricultural rate went from $32.43 to $36.77 per parcel.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Governmentwill tax itto death Q The Washington Times Q The Washington Post OPINION Wednesday, September 5, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AOPINION ANOTHER VIEW T here is one over-riding task for President Obama and the Democrats at the convention in Charlotte this week: to give substance to the vision of a second Obama term. The pres-ident accomplished more in his first term than Republicans in Tampa last week gave him credit for. But he also has dis-appointed in ways that we, like many voters, hope a second term could overcome. Embedded in this convention mission are numerous tasks. One is defending the achievements of the first term. Despite the difficulty of answering the are-you-bet-ter-off question in the midst of a sluggish recovery, Mr. Obama needs to explain how his actions eased the economic crisis and took on long-standing challenges such as extending health-care cov-erage to millions of uninsured Americans. At the same time, Mr. Obama must explain why he was unable to fulfill his prom-ise to overcome the “broken politics in Washington.” Many Republicans were deter-mined from the start to derail his agenda and prevent his reelection. Yet an implacable opposition is hardly the whole story. At key moments of his presidency, Mr. Obama ducked the duty to lead in forging bipartisan solutions to the nation’s biggest problems. Seeking reelection, he needs to explain to voters fed up with Washington gridlock and bickering why they should expect the next four years to be different from the last, and why they should be confident he will step up to the task. As we said last week, Mr. Romney’s acceptance speech was disappointingly light on agenda. Mr. Obama simi-larly should explain where he would take the country if given a second term. So far, he has been better at criticiz-ing Republicans for wanting a return to what he describes as the failed policies of George W. Bush — a trickle-down, rerun agenda “better suited for the last century,” he said over the weekend — than in framing his own. Specifically, what would Mr. Obama do to restrain health-care costs and entitlement spending? How would he reduce the national debt to a sustainable level, where would he find revenue beyond taxing the rich, and can he enlist at least some Republican help in either goal? How would he ensure that the war in Afghanistan ends in a way that protects U.S. security interests as well as basic human rights in that country, and how will he prevent Iran from obtain-ing a nuclear weapon? Would he, in a second term, adhere to the concern for endangered civilians and the promotion of freedom he boasted of in Libya or to the hands-off poli-cy he has followed in Syria? Mr. Obama rightly promises to rebuild the nation’s econ-omy and bolster its middle class by investing in educa-tion, science and infrastruc-ture. But that will be an empty promise if the nation cannot get a handle on its long-term finances. Republicans in Tampa, Mr. Obama said, offered “a lot of talk about ‘hard truths’ and ‘bold choices,’ but the inter-esting thing was nobody ever bothered to tell us what they were.” Fair enough. We hope he will do better. M y wife, who is the love of my life, and her neighborhood friends enjoyed “girls’ day out” yesterday. They went to lunch, explored arts and crafts shops, and enjoyed fun conversation. Over lunch, the conversation turned to health and fitness issues. The entire country is becoming more aware and concerned about health and fitness. Obesity, poor physical condi-tion, and general health are bigger problems in this country, at this time, than ever before. We can blame it on many fac-tors, like sedentary lifestyles, snack foods, restaurant meal sizes, and fast food loaded up with sugar and fat. But does it really matter who’s to blame? Rather than blaming, we can take a look at our own habits, and make those choices that can build up our own health and fitness. What does it take to do it? Fifteen years ago, my wife and I met with a fitness trainer at a fitness club. This trained pro-fessional assessed us in depth, and developed a fitness plan for us. It began with a strict, and supposedly healthy diet, includ-ing “bunny food” salads and small portions of lean mean, full of protein. (I wonder what this trainer actually ate with his own meals?) We were given an introduction to all the fitness equipment (torture apparatus), and prescribed a specific num-ber of repetitions of each. But before we were even allowed to use these “miracle-work-ing” devices, we were directed to briskly walk for 45 minutes on the hiking path. Well, we walked about 30 minutes before sneaking out and going home. I think we went back maybe once or twice, reluctant to abandon our membership fees. You may have been a fan of the TV show “Biggest Loser.” Could you endure the torture and pain they went through for months, for the fame and big money rewards they got? And did you follow up to see how long they maintained this level of diet and exercise? I doubt it. My experience shows me that if you jump in eagerly and overdo your physical activity you will likely end up painfully sore the next day. That’s usually enough to discourage any further efforts. If it’s not easy or fun, you’re not likely to continue. Am I a fitness and nutrition expert? No, but I’ve seen research findings that show that success begins with small changes, gradually. Little changes in diet or physical activity may feel good immedi-ately, and over time the health benefits, energy level, and good feelings can be the reward that keeps you going in a new direc-tion—a healthier lifestyle. What’s the best way to start? With your next meal, include something healthy. Cut back the size of the meal just a little. Instead of Pizza, I find that whole-grain spaghetti and meat-balls is equally satisfying, and that I feel better all day. Instead of a double cheeseburger with fries, how about choosing a chicken salad sandwich? Snack on applesauce or veggies and dip, instead of fats and sugars. Make small changes, as part of a long-term lifestyle change. Can’t exercise? Do what you can with what you’ve got to work with. Play the hand you’re dealt. A previous stroke left my dad with balance problems, and he would occasionally fall. He entered an independent living facility. He began spending his days in an overstuffed chair, or watching TV in bed. He chose a wheelchair instead of a walker. His fitness and health declined. When I suggested stretching, yoga, or easy calisthenics that he could do in bed, he made excuses. Even folks with physi-cal limitations or disabilities can choose activities within their capabilities. Make health and fitness a priority. Look at what you can do, not what you can’t. Could you take a short walk every day? Could you splash around in a swimming pool? Could you play golf, or walk around the shopping mall? Find out what will work for you, based on your own capa-bilities and limitations. This is something you can start now, today. You could add quality to your life, and years to its length. n Bob Denny is a licensed mental health therapist in Florida, and teaches psycholo-gy at Florida Gateway College. Your comments and success stories are welcome at Bob.Denny8@gmail.com T he Democrats are hysterical to the point of waging a war on the elderly, or at least on 82-year-old Clint Eastwood, who gave us a lasting image of President Barack Obama at the GOP convention. He is an empty chair, the filmmaker sug-gested, though just how empty was something we learned earlier in a speech by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Eastwood’s presentation was short and satirical. Hers was longer and deadly serious as she talked about failed econom-ic policies on top of something else: neglect in showing either friends or foes where America stands on vital issues. Rice did not minimize the leadership task, pointing to “internal strife” in the Middle East, dictators who “butcher” their own people, the “ultimate sacrifice” of Americans in war and the support needed by “fledgling democracies.” But since World War II, she said, we have stood for “free peoples and free markets” and if we do not lead again, there will either be “chaos” or “others who do not share our values will fill the vacuum.” Calling for the election of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, she said the world now sees that the United States cannot live “within our means.” And in this nation of ours -“the most successful political and economic experiment in human history” -we have not previ-ously fallen back on “a narra-tive of grievance and entitle-ment,” she also said. This is the week that the Democrats once again nomi-nate Obama and during which he and his henchmen once more stir up envy against the rich while promising others something for nothing. The rich are among those to profit from the insurance benefit, while those struggling to make ends meet are among those whose premiums will go up to pay for it. This is OK? T he government doesn’t handle tech-nology well. When Uncle Sam comes into contact with something new, his first instinct is to impose familiar regulations and taxes regardless of wheth-er doing so makes any sense. So it’s no surprise the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) plans to apply telephone-era rules to the Internet, mak-ing it more expensive than ever to log in to keep in touch with friends and family. In late July, the FCC — a relic from the New Deal — moved to replace the Universal Service Fund with the cheerily titled “Connect America Fund.” The idea is to impose big taxes on everyone so a pot of cash can be handed over to well-con-nected companies that provide gold-plated Internet service to people who choose to live in remote locations. Though most Americans aren’t familiar with the Universal Service Fund, it’s the reason their phone bills are filled with inscrutable federal charges that jack up rates to the tune of $8 bil-lion every year. Today, there are 146 million wired and 290 million wireless phone lines. Instead of declar-ing victory and rolling back the regressive tax on phone bills, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski wants to charge ahead, expanding his agency’s reach to Internet access. Mr. Genachowski claims he must act because 18 million are without “fixed broadband” that meets speed targets set by agency bureaucrats. Federal bureaucrats only care about centralizing power in Washington. The same instinct drove lower-level operatives at the Federal Trade Commission two years ago to float the idea of imposing a Drudge Tax, which would charge news aggregators like the Drudge Report for offering links to other websites. The Internet’s relative freedom is the reason it has done so well. It’s time for lawmakers to pull the plug on both the Universal Service Fund and the far more dangerous Connect America Fund.Obama’stask athand Robert DennyBob.Denny8@gmail.com Q Jay Ambrose, formerly Washington director of editorial policy for Scripps Howard news-papers and the editor of dailies in El Paso, Texas, and Denver, is a columnist living in Colorado.

dinner with his daughters nearly every night, answer ing their questions about the news and strategizing about middle-school friend ships. With a mix of personal anecdotes and policy talk, Mrs. Obamas speech was by far her most political yet. Today, after so many struggles and triumphs and moments that have tested my husband in ways I never could have imagined, I have seen first hand that being president doesnt change who you are it reveals who you are, she said. To that send, the first lady painted a portrait of a leader who knows firsthand the struggles of everyday Americans, who listens to them as presi dent, and who pushes an agenda with their interests in mind. Thats the man I see in those quiet moments late at night, hunched over his desk, poring over the let ters people have sent him, she said. I see the concern in his eyes ... and I hear the determination in his voice as he tells me, You wont believe what these folks are going through, Michelle its not right. Weve got to keep working to fix this. Weve got so much more to do. She added: I see how thats what drives Barack Obama every single day. With such stories, the first lady sought to counter Republicans trying to paint Obama as something other than a typical American, and implied that it was Romney who couldnt relate to people trying to get by in tough economic times. To be sure, neither Romney nor Obama fits the bill of the average, work ing-class American strug gling with credit card debt and mortgage payments. Both are millionaires who live a privileged life few Americans will ever experi ence. But each candidate is try ing to convince Americans that theyre best-suited to run an economy ham pered by sluggish growth and high unemployment. Polls show Romney lead ing on who voters say would best to manage the economy, but Obama with the advantage on who vot ers believe understands their economic challenges better. As she stood in the cen ter of the conventions blue-carpeted stage, Mrs. Obamas words went straight to the core of the contrast Democrats are trying to draw between Obama and Romney. They say the president is pushing policies to boost the middle class, while Romney wants to protect the wealthy and hope their success trickles down. Once a reluctant politi cal spouse, Mrs. Obama delved more deeply into the details of her husbands policies than she has in her previous speeches. She promoted his health care overhaul, push for tax cuts for middle income earners and the auto bailout. And she took on the economy, her husbands biggest polit ical liability, arguing that he brought our economy back from the brink of collapse to creating jobs again. In the end, for Barack, these issues arent political. Theyre personal, she said. The president watched Mrs. Obamas speech from the White House along with the couples two young daughters. Im going to try to not let them see their daddy cry because when Michelle starts talking, I start get ting all misty, Obama said at rally earlier Tuesday in Norfolk, Va. Mrs. Obama will likely have one more turn in the convention spotlight later this week. She is expected to introduce her husband Thursday night when he accepts the Democratic nomination before a crowd of up to 74,000 and a tele vision audience of millions across the country.

For details, call club president Joe Martino at 984-0452.Q From staff reports Powerhouse matchupBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIt’s rare for an early-season matchup to create such hype, but there’s been talk of Thursday’s showdown between Columbia and Gainesville high schools dating back to the summer. To put it simply, these teams don’t like each other. The Tigers and Hurricanes had to be seper-ated during the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Camp held in Deland this sum-mer. On Thursday, they’ll finally get to hit each other again, this time in a game. For Columbia it’s a matter of disrespect. Players have spoken of the trash talk they’ve heard from the Hurricanes this summer. Coach Brian Allen saw a little more disrespect when only one athlete was named as a top performer in the area. Columbia’s Laremy Tunsil was that one play-er, but Allen felt that the Tigers may have deserved a few more. Gainesville, on the other hand, made up half the list. “They have some bigtime players there,” Allen said, showing no disrespect to Gainesville’s roster. “But do they have five or more? I feel we have the same type of players. It’s an insult to us for them to have that many and for us to only be good enough to have one. The players take that as an insult and we expect to have success.” The talk will end on Thursday for both teams as the Tigers travel to Citizen’s Field at 7:30 p.m. in Gainesville.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Kelbie Ronsonet goes up for a spike.CHS volleyball serves up revengeBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comThings looked much better for Columbia High’s volleyball team when it counted. After falling to Oak Hall in three sets of a preseason contest, the Lady Tigers picked up the win when it was official on Tuesday. Columbia served up its revenge in four sets to defeat Oak Hall 25-11, 25-23, 23-25 and 25-16 on its home court. “We lost to them in three last time, so we knew it would be a good matchup and tough battle,” Columbia head coach Rebecca Golden said. “It was a good learning experience for our girls to come back and show how much we’ve improved.” Kelbie Ronsonet and Annie Milton led the Lady Tigers on the net with 11 kills each in the contest. Ronsonet also finished with six blocks while Milton had four aces in the match. Jessie Bates led the team with 33 assists. While the Lady Tigers picked up the win, Golden said that unforced errors led to the game going one set longer than they would have liked. “We had a couple of communication breakdowns and unforced errors,” Golden said. “We were able to pick it up and play as a team. We looked very strong and I’m especially proud of Kelbie. She did a great job and got it done tonight for sure.” Columbia takes the rest of the week off before trav-eling to Fort White High for a county collision at 6 p.m. on Wednesday. The Lady Tigers are 2-0 on the short season. The junior varsity also picked up its second win in as many games with a 25-21 and 25-22 win against Oak Hall. Grace Harry led the team with five aces and three kills in the match. Zoe Norris led the team in assists with six and added two aces. Lacey King finished with two kills. Columbia picks up four-set win over Oak Hall.

Split results for Columbia golf teamsBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High’s girls golf team had a rough go of it on Tuesday in Gainesville. The Lady Tigers struggled to a 204 in a loss to Oak Hall, which shot 173 at Gainesville Country Club in Gainesville. “We’re still trying to get going,” head coach Todd Carter said. “The girls are playing good, but we’ve got to improve our short game. We left a lot out there around the greens trying to get up and down.” Sophomore Gillian Norris led the Lady Tigers with a 48 in the match. Ashley Mixon finished with a 51, Brooke Russell turned in a 52 and Allie Kranke finished with a 53 in the match. The Lady Tigers fall to 1-2 with the loss and will take on Buchholz at Haile Plantation at 3:30 p.m. on Girls fall to Oak Hall, boys split tri-match Tuesday. CHS continued on 2B

Gary Newcomb birdied the finishing hole to take a one point win at +6 in the A flight of Saturday’s blitz. Terry Hunter was a point behind the winner. Robbie Kerby +2, took third a point ahead of Jonathan Allen. Jim Carr shot +8 to finish with a two point margin over Chris Land in B flight. Ray Burnside and Mike Carr shared fourth with +5.

Steve Thomas, Charlie Timmons and Tom Wade, all at +2, did the same for fourth place. Tim Dortch had a skin to share the pot with Rogers, Thomas and Timmons.

Fort White travels to Interlachen High at 6 p.m. on Thursday. Matheiu enrolls at LSU, Tigers move onBy BRETT MARTELAssociated PressBATON ROUGE, La. — Tyrann Mathieu has opened a new chapter at LSU. Whether the 2011 Heisman Trophy final-ist known as the Honey Badger ever plays foot-ball for the Tigers again remains to be seen. As Mathieu was enrolling in school for the fall semester on Tuesday, LSU coach Les Miles was main-taining his stance that the time is not right to spec-ulate on the former star cornerback’s future with the program. All that is certain at this point is that Mathieu, who was dismissed from the team Aug. 10 for failed drug tests, won’t be play-ing this season, which con-tinues Saturday night with the Washington Huskies’ visit to Tiger Stadium. “I think he’s making some quality decisions for himself,” Miles said of Mathieu’s efforts to address personal matters and his return to school exclusively as a student. “My focus is about my team and preparing game week. ... We certainly wish (Mathieu) the very best.” When Mathieu was dismissed, Miles and LSU ath-letic officials said the move was required by school policies. They assumed Mathieu’s departure was permanent, for practical purposes, because he was immediately eligible to transfer to a football pro-gram in the FCS, the sec-ond tier of Division I, and also will have the option of entering the 2013 NFL draft. With Mathieu back on campus, Miles said he was not aware of any school policies that would prevent the popular ex-Tiger from rejoining the team in 2013.

DEAR ABBY: My mom’s boyfriend wants to spend time with my 16-year-old sister and take her places all the time. He wants to cuddle with both of us whenever we sit on the couch and gets really upset when we don’t want to. He’s my biological father, but I have known him only for a year because he left my mom when she was pregnant with me. Now he wants to play “dad” when I already have had a dad all my life. (Mom was married for 11 years to another man.) I’m 14. He yells and swears all the time and takes things away from us if we don’t do what he wants. He isn’t physically abusive yet, but the cuddling freaks me out and I don’t think it’s right. I told my school counselor. She said to get over it, that it wasn’t a big deal. Abby, what can I do? I think he is grooming my sister for sex since he told us he likes young girls and was used to them before Mom. Mom has problems with depression and reality and won’t listen to us. Help us, please. Where can I go? -HELPLESS IN THE MIDWEST DEAR HELPLESS: Because your father’s over-tures make you uncomfort-able, and he “punishes” you if you don’t accept them -it IS a “big deal.” Before this goes any further, you should call Childhelp and describe what’s happen-ing. The toll-free number is 800-422-4453. The person who answers the phone can refer you to help in your state. Please don’t wait. Your safety and that of your sister could depend on it. DEAR ABBY: I am romantically attracted to a girl, “Jade.” We have known each other ever since we were in diapers. She’s bub-bly, vivacious and beautiful. We flirted with puppy love about 10 years ago, but it never went beyond writ-ing love letters and ended quickly. Jade goes through boyfriends like a chain-smoker goes through cigarettes. It seems as if every time I ask her, “So, how is your current boyfriend?” that she has a new one. Her mother is the same way, truth be told, and never found a good father figure for Jade. The men her mother dated were abusive. Consequently, Jade isn’t the best judge of men, either. My parents have suggested that she may view me as a friend because I’m the only decent guy in her life, and she’s afraid we wouldn’t be friends if our romantic relationship ended. I want to tell her that I’d like to date her the next time her current rela-tionship ends. At the same time, I want her to know I’d rather have her as a friend than nothing at all. Thanks to the wonder of social media, I will know when her next relationship ends. Should I wait till then? If not, how long? -FIRST LOVE IN THE SOUTH DEAR FIRST LOVE: You seem to have a lot of insight about Jade. Because she was raised by a mother who was involved in one abusive relationship after another, she may feel that unless there is pain and drama, that what she’s experiencing is boring and not really “love.” Until she realizes that the criteria she’s using in choosing men are flawed, and is will-ing to get help to straighten out her thinking, her pat-tern will continue to repeat itself. As you hover over your keyboard waiting for news of her next romantic fail-ure, I suggest that rather than “pounce,” you keep her as a friend until she’s ready for a mature relation-ship. If you don’t, you will only suffer more disap-pointment. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take a backseat and let others make the first move. It’s bet-ter to observe for now. Emotional arguments will not solve a problem, but practical application that allows you to put your efforts where you’ll get the highest return is favored. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Show your feelings and embrace change. Follow your heart. Romance is in the stars, and being true to the one you love will bring stellar results. A trip or social-izing will lead to a better understanding of what you can achieve. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Make constructive changes to your spending habits. A precise assess-ment of what you are doing and have already accomplished will help keep you out of trouble when dealing with superi-ors. Positive and progres-sive action will be impres-sive. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take time to assess your situation at home and your relationships with friends and relatives. Choosing the people you want to work alongside or to help will be crucial if you want to achieve specific results. Express your plans elaborately. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t leave anything to chance. Finish what you start to avoid complaints. A change of location or trying something new will help to ease your stress. Take care of any pressing health or family matters. Added responsibilities are apparent. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do whatever it takes to improve your position personally, financially or professionally. You will have options and must compare where different choices will lead. Don’t underestimate someone vying for the same position or goal. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Think big, but don’t let impulse overrule com-mon sense. Not everyone will agree with you. Put more effort into domestic changes that will help keep everyone around you con-tent. Avoid anyone putting pressure on you. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Discuss business plans with your boss or someone you want to work alongside. Don’t hide your expertise or fear putting a little pressure on someone who needs a gentle push. Love is on the rise, and a little playful fun should be scheduled. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Bend a little if that’s what it takes to get along with others. Too much of anything or exag-gerating facts will lead to trouble.

DEAR ABBY: My mom’s boyfriend wants to spend time with my 16-year-old sister and take her places all the time. He wants to cuddle with both of us whenever we sit on the couch and gets really upset when we don’t want to. He’s my biological father, but I have known him only for a year because he left my mom when she was pregnant with me. Now he wants to play “dad” when I already have had a dad all my life. (Mom was married for 11 years to another man.) I’m 14. He yells and swears all the time and takes things away from us if we don’t do what he wants. He isn’t physically abusive yet, but the cuddling freaks me out and I don’t think it’s right. I told my school counselor. She said to get over it, that it wasn’t a big deal. Abby, what can I do? I think he is grooming my sister for sex since he told us he likes young girls and was used to them before Mom. Mom has problems with depression and reality and won’t listen to us. Help us, please. Where can I go? -HELPLESS IN THE MIDWEST DEAR HELPLESS: Because your father’s over-tures make you uncomfort-able, and he “punishes” you if you don’t accept them -it IS a “big deal.” Before this goes any further, you should call Childhelp and describe what’s happen-ing. The toll-free number is 800-422-4453. The person who answers the phone can refer you to help in your state. Please don’t wait. Your safety and that of your sister could depend on it. DEAR ABBY: I am romantically attracted to a girl, “Jade.” We have known each other ever since we were in diapers. She’s bub-bly, vivacious and beautiful. We flirted with puppy love about 10 years ago, but it never went beyond writ-ing love letters and ended quickly. Jade goes through boyfriends like a chain-smoker goes through cigarettes. It seems as if every time I ask her, “So, how is your current boyfriend?” that she has a new one. Her mother is the same way, truth be told, and never found a good father figure for Jade. The men her mother dated were abusive. Consequently, Jade isn’t the best judge of men, either. My parents have suggested that she may view me as a friend because I’m the only decent guy in her life, and she’s afraid we wouldn’t be friends if our romantic relationship ended. I want to tell her that I’d like to date her the next time her current rela-tionship ends. At the same time, I want her to know I’d rather have her as a friend than nothing at all. Thanks to the wonder of social media, I will know when her next relationship ends. Should I wait till then? If not, how long? -FIRST LOVE IN THE SOUTH DEAR FIRST LOVE: You seem to have a lot of insight about Jade. Because she was raised by a mother who was involved in one abusive relationship after another, she may feel that unless there is pain and drama, that what she’s experiencing is boring and not really “love.” Until she realizes that the criteria she’s using in choosing men are flawed, and is will-ing to get help to straighten out her thinking, her pat-tern will continue to repeat itself. As you hover over your keyboard waiting for news of her next romantic fail-ure, I suggest that rather than “pounce,” you keep her as a friend until she’s ready for a mature relation-ship. If you don’t, you will only suffer more disap-pointment. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take a backseat and let others make the first move. It’s bet-ter to observe for now. Emotional arguments will not solve a problem, but practical application that allows you to put your efforts where you’ll get the highest return is favored. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Show your feelings and embrace change. Follow your heart. Romance is in the stars, and being true to the one you love will bring stellar results. A trip or social-izing will lead to a better understanding of what you can achieve. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Make constructive changes to your spending habits. A precise assess-ment of what you are doing and have already accomplished will help keep you out of trouble when dealing with superi-ors. Positive and progres-sive action will be impres-sive. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take time to assess your situation at home and your relationships with friends and relatives. Choosing the people you want to work alongside or to help will be crucial if you want to achieve specific results. Express your plans elaborately. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t leave anything to chance. Finish what you start to avoid complaints. A change of location or trying something new will help to ease your stress. Take care of any pressing health or family matters. Added responsibilities are apparent. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do whatever it takes to improve your position personally, financially or professionally. You will have options and must compare where different choices will lead. Don’t underestimate someone vying for the same position or goal. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Think big, but don’t let impulse overrule com-mon sense. Not everyone will agree with you. Put more effort into domestic changes that will help keep everyone around you con-tent. Avoid anyone putting pressure on you. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Discuss business plans with your boss or someone you want to work alongside. Don’t hide your expertise or fear putting a little pressure on someone who needs a gentle push. Love is on the rise, and a little playful fun should be scheduled. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Bend a little if that’s what it takes to get along with others. Too much of anything or exag-gerating facts will lead to trouble. Make constructive changes at home that will help stabilize your personal life. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You’ve got more control over a situation than you realize. Take care of money matters; do your best to secure your assets and you will be able to relax. Your efforts will be looked at as skills that are valuable. Love is highlight-ed. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Look out for your own interests. Trouble will develop if you share your personal secrets with some-one untrustworthy. You are best to focus on important partnerships and maintain-ing the highest level of integrity. Put money in a safe place. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Tie up loose ends and tend to personal money matters. Creative accounting can help you save more.
