Gates open at 10 a.m. Friday and Saturday with free admission until 3 p.m. on Friday. After 3, admis-sion is $5 for Friday night and includes two concerts. Saturday’s admission is $3 for all day at the event. “We’re looking forward to a wonderful event that’s going to give the commu-nity a chance to come out and sample some great bar-becue and watch some of the experts at work,” said Wanda Jones, Smokin’ Pig BBQ Committee chairman. There are 41 teams scheduled to compete in this year’s event, which marks the fourth year the event has been held. Jones said the event continues to increase in its popularity. “I guess people really like to barbecue,” she said. “It’s a real popular thing to do. Everybody enjoys a good steak, pork loin or Boston butt on the grill. We think this is something that’s easy to do, it’s fun, the whole family can get involved in it and I just think it’s something that everybody enjoys.” What to WatchLive musical entertainment Friday on the Main Stage will feature two very well-known per-formers from the North Florida region.

Sgt. Ed Seifert, Columbia County Sheriff’s Office public information officer, said syn-thetic drugs are among the latest in a series of substances that, when used improperly, offer alternatives to traditional illegal drugs. These powerful stimulants, reportedly intend-ed as as substitutes for ecstasy, cocaine, amphetamines and marijuana, have been designed to avoid illegal prosecution and are commonly available on the Internet, specialty “smoke” shops and convenience stores. The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office partnered with the Lake City Police Department, State Attorney’s Office and the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office dur-ing the Wednesday morning operation. Seifert said the synthetic substances were seized from a total of nine independently-owned convenience stores in Columbia County and Lake City. On March 23, Gov. Rick Scott signed HB1175 into law. The law deemed “synthetic substances” such as bath salts and synthetic cannabinoids to be a significant threat to the health and public safety within Florida. In accordance with the new law, authorities visited mul-tiple convenience stores in Columbia County and Lake City. Any and all products that were deemed in violation of the new law were seized from the businesses. “Several pounds of banned products were collected,” Comin’ out Smokin’ 4th Annual Smokin’ Pig BBQ Fest set for Friday, SaturdayGrilling class set fortonightWater district taxrate unchanged Columbia County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Kimberly Ray examines items in a local estab-lishment Wednesday. COURTESYPart of combined effort from local law enforcement. BUST continued on 6A By DAVID ESPOAP Special CorrespondentWASHINGTON — Republican challenger Mitt Romney accused President Barack Obama’s administration on Wednesday of show-ing weakness in the face of tumultuous events that left four U.S. diplomats dead in the Middle East and jolted the race for the White House. Obama retorted that his rival “seems to have a tenden-cy to shoot first and aim later.” Even some Republicans questioned Romney’s handling of the issue, calling it hasty. Top GOP leaders in Congress point-edly declined to endorse his criticism of the presi-dent. Said Obama: “It’s important for you to make sure that the state-ments that you make are backed up by the facts. And that you’ve thought through the ramifications before you make ‘em.” Obama-the-politicalcandidate’s unusually personal criticism, which came in an interview with CBS, stood in contrast to his appearance outside the White House earli-er in the day. Then, he somberly mourned the deaths and announced the deployment of additional Marines at diplo-matic posts overseas in his capacity as command-er in chief. “And make no mistake. Justice will be done” he declared, referring to those responsible for the murders of Chris Stevens, U.S. ambassador to Libya, and three others. The four diplomats were killed on Tuesday as protesters overran and burned the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. In a separate incident, the American Embassy in Cairo was breached by protesters, and the nation’s flag was ripped down, although no deaths were reported there. The political fallout came as U.S. officials investigated whether the attack in Libya was a ter-rorist strike planned to mark the 11th anniversary of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Initial reports were that both the Libya and Egypt events had been motivated by anger over an amateur film made in the United States that ridiculed Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. Either way, some Republicans joined Democrats in question-ing Romney’s decision to inject himself into the situation thousands of miles away with his BARBS continued on 6A Lake City barbecue professional Thomas Henry holds up a slab of meat during a recent cooking exhibition.

With property values declining 2 percent, this will save the district tax-payers roughly $280,000, according to district offi-cials. The proposed budget supports the agency’s core mission and includes funding for agriculture and local government cost-share programs. It reflects a significant increase in focus on water resource and supply plan-ning and monitoring while meeting the needs in the other program areas. The district proposes to set aside $1.5 million for agriculture and $1.5 mil-lion for local government cost-share programs for water resource develop-ment, conservation, water quality, and natural sys-tems projects. Program highlights include continuation of: Minimum Flows and Levels (MFLs) program North Florida Regional Water Supply Partnership Data collection, management, monitoring and analysis Detailed floodplain studies Aquifer Recharge Feasibility Study Land management and surplus lands program Improvements, TAX continued on 6A

John Ashbery MIAMI The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has sus pended two central Florida CVS stores from selling controlled substances as part of prescription drug diversion investigation. DEA officials said Wednesday it marked the first time the agency had revoked such registrations at national chain stores. An administrative law judge sided with DEA in recom mending revocation of the two CVS outlets in Sanford. The case is part of a broader DEA crackdown in Florida on illegal sales of prescription drugs such as oxycodone and hydro codone. DEA says the two Sanford stores dispensed more than 3 million oxy codone pills last year, far above the average nation ally. A CVS spokesman says the company is reviewing the decision. CVS earlier said it had tightened poli cies regarding the filling of controlled substance pre scriptions.

Her former attorney, a friend and two other men are also charged in the jew elry scam. Motions denied in Rilya Wilson case MIAMI A South Florida judge has denied defense motions seeking to toss out a purported con fession in the murder case stemming from the 2000 disappearance of 4-year-old Rilya Wilson. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Marisa TinklerMendez on Wednesday rejected defense claims that the alleged confes sion should be thrown out because defendant Geralyn Graham did not have a law yer present. The judge also said she will allow state ments Graham made to a police detective. Graham was the girls caretaker when she disap peared. She faces a Nov. 5 trial date on murder and other charges. Motorcyclist struck, killed ORLANDO Authorities say a person on a motorcycle was struck and killed by a school bus in central Florida.

DEA suspends permits for two state CVS stores n Associated Press PHILADELPHIA Fifty years after Charles Xavier banded his first class of mutants together as the X-Men, the tele path-turned-team builder has been killed by one of them. The teacher, who trained mutants in Marvel Entertainments X-Men comics through the years, was felled in the latest issue of Avengers vs. XMen by Scott Summers. Summers, aka Cyclops, was one of the teams founding members. In the current series, hes been taken over by the Phoenix force and is lashing out. Marvel editor in chief Axel Alonso says it wasnt writer Brian Michael Bendis initial intent to kill the character off, but as the story progressed it became obvious that this had to be the last stand of Charles Xavier. He says the mortal blow will have ramifications that will reach into new titles coming this fall. MacFarlane is SNL guest host NEW YORK You might think Seth MacFarlane has a show-biz bucket list. By now, hes checked off ventures like his ani mated TV shows (led by Family Guy), his record ing of show tunes, live performances at Carnegie Hall and this summers film comedy, Ted, which he directed, wrote and pro vided the title characters voice for. Now MacFarlane will serve as guest host this week for the season pre miere of NBCs Saturday Night Live. Was this just the next gig on his to-do list? Not exactly, MacFarlane said Tuesday. When things come up, I tackle them if they sound fun. Thats how I decide what to do and what not to do. Its what sounds like its going to be a good time. But theres another rea son he was reporting to Studio 8H. They asked me, he explained. Its the kind of thing you dont say no to if youre in comedy. For a multimedia come dy impresario, MacFarlane might not seem ideally suited to SNL, where he is being treated warmly, but not in his customary role as the boss. Madisons last Peepshow nears LAS VEGAS Las Vegas Strip burlesque star and mother-to-be Holly Madison is taking her final bow at Peepshow on Oct. 21.

A legislative panel on Wednesday approved a proposal by the administra tion of Gov. Rick Scott to spend nearly $58 million in order to privatize prison health care operations by January. The issue divided the panel with Democrats questioning the record of the private compa nies and whether the states Legislative Budget Commission could legally approve the move instead of the entire Legislature. The Florida Senate earlier this year narrowly defeated a proposal to privatize pris ons in South Florida. I think this is an over reach, said Senate Democratic Leader Nan Rich, D-Westonn. But Republican legisla tors and lawyers with the Florida Department of Corrections insisted that the state can move ahead with the privatization plan. Sen. J.D. Alexander, RLake Wales and chairman of the Legislative Budget Commission, insisted it was totally within the author ity of the panel to make such a major decision. He said the commission acted on the request at this time because Scott asked them to do it now. But Alexander also said that he agreed to support it because the state is project ed to save money by using two private companies to offer health care services to nearly 100,000 inmates. I think its an opportu nity to provide more effi cient and effective services to those inmates and save money, Alexander said. Top officials at Floridas prison agency told legisla tors that the savings would be achieved by a number of ways, including the likeli hood that those working for the private companies would not receive the same level of benefits as state workers. An agency official also said that he expected that about 98 percent of those now working for the state would be offered jobs by the private companies. But the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees which represents non-pro fessional employees pro viding health care services said they would quickly go into court to block the privatization from going ahead. The decision on Wednesday is just the latest in battles over the privatiza tion of prison health care services. State legislators back in 2011 had previously approved the privatization effort but they tucked it into the overall state bud get instead of passing a stand-alone piece of legis lation authorizing it. That move sparked a court fight, but a judge this summer declared the case over because the outsourcing provision had expired at the end of the June. The department already has selected two compa nies to handle health care services. The state picked Pittsburgh-based Wexford Health Sources for the southern part of the state and Corizon Inc. of Brentwood, Tenn., for other regions. Florida will privatize nearly 3,000 prison jobs GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE A scathing new report from state investigators con tends that Florida A&M University didnt keep track of expenses and finances for its famed Marching 100 band. The investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement was launched in the aftermath of the hazing death of drum major Robert Champion. State investiga tors looking into Champions death last November found problems with the bands finances and started a separate probe. The band has been suspended for this year and 12 for mer members have been charged with felony hazing in connection to Champions death. The probe into university finances resulted in the arrest last month of the university events director on misdemeanor charges. The final report released on Wednesday did not find any additional wrongdoing, but it does fault the university for lax oversight. Among the findings: Travel per diem payments intended for band members going to football games were handed out to students, some still in elementary school, along with university alumni and others not even enrolled at FAMU. The report states that neither former band director Julian White or FAMU officials could explain why this hap pened. In another instance White who resigned from his job earlier this year waited three months before reporting the theft in thou sands of dollars of band dues that he collected months earlier. The FDLE report raises questions about much was stolen during the 2007 incident, noting that while witnesses said as much as $40,000 may have been stolen, White told FAMU police the amount was only around $12,000. Investigators also discovered that the university allowed White to get paid extra for outside band per formances. Additionally, the FDLE review states that investigators had trouble verifying purchases made by FAMU employees as well as travel reimbursements. Nearly all of the issues and con cerns identified pursuant to this investigation resulted from FAMU and its employees failure to comply with university policy and proce dure, the FDLE report concludes. Furthermore, the investigation revealed that a lack of internal con trols and administrative oversight substantially contributed to a sys temic lack of regard for or adher ence to university policy and proce dure. Interim President Larry Robinson issued a statement Wednesday say ing that he had received the report late this afternoon and our team is reviewing it for additional cor rective action. Likewise, a spokes woman for State University System of Florida Chancellor Frank Brogan said he had not had a chance to review the report. Chuck Hobbs, an attorney rep resenting White, said that veteran band director had fully cooperated with investigators and even handed over his banking records. He said that the final report exonerated White of any wrong doing. White was fired right after Champions death, but he was then reinstated and placed on leave at the request of state investigators. White wound up retiring the same week that the university disclosed more than 100 band members werent even enrolled FAMU stu dents at the time of Champions death, FAMU did not keep good records Members of the Edward Rutledge Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution pose with Lake City Mayor Stephen Witt Wednesday after Witt proclaimed Sept. 17 as the 225 anniversary of the drafting of the Constitution of the United States of America by the Constitutional Convention.

T he Chicago teach-ers’ strike has huge implications for the Obama administra-tion. If it drags on long enough, the strike that began Monday will inevitably draw compari-sons to the tough stand taken by Republican governors in Wisconsin, Ohio and New Jersey against public employee unions. Almost inevitably, it will have Republicans waxing nostalgic for President Ronald Reagan’s firing of striking air traffic controllers in 1981. But these are Chicago city employees, and there’s little President Barack Obama can do about it except walk a fine line between the teachers’ unions, among his strongest supporters, and his education reforms -some of them at issue in Chicago -that they largely oppose. Much as he would probably like to, Obama cannot totally distance himself from this con-tentious labor dispute of at least 26,000 striking teachers, affect-ing more than 350,000 students and, of course, their parents. Republicans, momentarily forgetting their own Chris Christie for a second, portrayed the strike as typical of the bare-knuckled Chicago political milieu that produced Obama. GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney said it was a typical example of teachers unions plac-ing their interests over those of the children. For Obama, the only good that can come out of this strike is a quick end.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Taking the Chicago mayor to school Q The Washington Times Q The Washington Post OPINION Thursday, September 13, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AOPINION ANOTHER VIEW F irst, the good news: Sanctions have helped drive Iran’s currency to its low-est level ever, half its value from a year ago. Meanwhile, Iran’s oil exports were down almost 45 percent in July, the most recent month for which data are available. The bad news: Iran’s rulers are as determined as ever to develop nuclear weapons that they intend to use to dominate the Middle East, weaken America -“Satan incarnate” -and wipe Israel off the map. “New and significant intelligence” received by the International Atomic Energy Agency suggests Iran is closer than ever to acquiring the abil-ity to build nuclear weapons. Few sanctions advocates expected that Iran’s rulers -men possessed of a radical ideology and grand ambitions -would easily or quickly be convinced that acquiring nukes is more trouble than it’s worth. There was a chance: In 1988, then-Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini reluctantly agreed to a cease-fire with Iraq due, it is widely believed, to the economic crisis brought on by the conflict and the peril that posed to the sur-vival of his Islamic Revolution. There are no indications that sanctions at present levels have brought Iran’s current rulers anywhere near that point. What sanctions have done is end busi-ness as usual with the world’s most threatening regime, and link Iran’s crimes to more than just rhetorical consequences. By no other means was Iran going to be singled out or isolated -certainly not by the United Nations or other organs of the so-called international commu-nity. Over time, reality has been sinking in. Despite a vigor-ous propaganda effort by Iran’s apologists, 80 percent of Americans believe the regime’s nuclear program menaces the U.S. and its NATO allies, according to a poll taken this summer. Last week, Canada closed its embassy in Iran, gave Iranian diplomats in Canada five days to pack up and leave, and formally designated Iran a “state sponsor of terrorism.” The Iranian response was typical: A government spokesman called the Canadian government “racist.” In an editorial last week, the Washington Post, hardly a conservative or hawkish news-paper, said that “if Mr. Obama really is determined to take mili-tary action if Iran takes decisive steps toward producing a bomb, such as enriching uranium to bomb-grade levels or expelling inspectors, he would be wise to say so publicly. Doing so would improve relations with (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu and deter unilateral Israeli action -and it might well convince Iran that the time has come to compromise.” Exactly: The soft talk of diplomacy and relatively small stick of sanctions need to be buttressed by a big stick -a credible warning that force will be used should peaceful options prove insufficient. And should Israel decide that the imminent acquisition of nukes by a regime openly committed to its annihilation requires a military response sooner rather than later, having tougher sanctions in place will be indispensable. The day after such a clash, Western diplomats should be able to tell the theocrats that the resuscitation of Iran’s economy cannot begin until they we are certain that their nuclear weap-ons program is moribund, and that they have stopped sponsor-ing terrorists abroad and violat-ing fundamental human rights at home. At that point, the Iranian people are sure to have opinions of their own. With a little encour-agement, they may have the courage to express them. T housands of Chicago public-school teach-ers have taken to the streets in their first strike in 25 years. Usually Republicans are the ones being denounced by Big Labor for having the temerity to insist on fiscal responsibility in public-sector union deals. This time, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, of impeccable Obama-era liberal Democratic credentials, is the one facing the chanting mobs and bongo drums. It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. The Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) is doing its best to fit the stereotype of greedy, out-of-touch laborites. The average Chicago teacher’s salary is $76,450 per year, compared to $47,000 for the average Chicagoan. The CTU is demanding a 30 percent pay bump over two years, with 24 percent coming in the current school year. Stunningly, the union turned down a 16 percent pay raise offered in arbitration. In addition, they want smaller class sizes, more hires and more time off to go to confer-ences and other time wasters. In short, they want it all. These demands would be outsized even in the best of times, but these days the city and the country are stuck with a low-growth economy, high unemployment and record amounts of debt. The CTU will find no sympathy from taxpay-ers who are paid far less than teachers yet are expected to foot the bill for the union’s bloated demands. Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney is turn-ing the strike into a popular referendum on the inflated power of public-sector unions. This increases the pressure on Mr. Obama to try to force Mr. Emanuel to cave to union demands and get the issue out of the headlines. It remains to be seen if Mr. Emanuel’s tough-guy persona is justified, or if the Windy City teachers will take the mayor to school. R epublican presiden-tial nominee Mitt Romney is specific about how much he will cut income tax rates for every American: by one-fifth. But he is vague about how he’ll pay for this, though he insists he can cut rates without losing revenue. The danger is a repeat of 2001 and 2003, when President Bush and Congress enacted tax cuts that plunged the nation into debt. Mr. Romney says he can prevent a repeat by closing loopholes. But the “loopholes” that cost the Treasury most are deduc-tions and other provisions that Americans have become rather attached to — for example, measures that promote hom-eownership, charitable giving and employer-provided health insurance. Which would he take away? Speaking Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Mr. Romney offered a new twist to his non-answer. The nominee repeated that he would “limit deductions and exemptions for people at the high end,” while he would “lower the burden on middle-income people.” Asked by host David Gregory about studies showing that the math doesn’t add up — the most authorita-tive is from the Tax Policy Center, a joint venture of the Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute — Mr. Romney cited studies from Harvard and Princeton universities that he said prove his point. A campaign spokeswoman told us that the Harvard study is an analysis by economist Martin Feldstein that we’ve written about previously. Mr. Feldstein showed that the Romney math might work if you strip all households with taxable income of $100,000 or more of every dollar of deduction for charitable giv-ing, state and local income tax and mortgage interest. Does Mr. Romney favor such a plan? Would he consider such a proposal to be lowering the burden on middle-income peo-ple, even though millionaires would get a break while those in the $100,000 to $200,000 income range would pay more? He won’t say. The Princeton study, his spokeswoman told us, refers to an analysis by economist Harvey S. Rosen. Mr. Rosen makes his math work by tak-ing away a lot of the same deductions from the same taxpayers, plus interest-free municipal bonds and the tax break for employer-provided health care — and then assum-ing that economic growth will be 3?percentage points higher than it would have been with-out tax reform. Mr. Rosen acknowledges that assuming increased growth runs counter to how the Treasury Department or the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation evalu-ate such proposals, but he says most economists agree that tax simplification would stimu-late growth. “It seems odd to assume away possible increas-es in incomes associated with a given tax reform proposal when its explicit goal is to enhance growth,” he wrote. The problem is that goals and results may not mesh. “I’ve demonstrated that I have the capacity to balance budgets,” Mr. Romney said Sunday. That would be more reassuring if he were willing to show the country a plan. Cliff May Q Clifford D.

Each store owner and/or manager was provided with a written overview of the synthetic substances and the reasons for seizure. Authorities did not identify the stores from which the substances were seized. “We have been working on this operation for several weeks,” Seifert said. “Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office recently performed the same operation so they were here to assist us, which we very much appreci-ate.” Retailers and those in possession of “synthetic substances” who require assistance in their lawful disposal are asked to contact their local law enforcement agencies for assistance. Failure to comply with this emergency order can result in a felony arrest under state statutes. Seifert said authorities were cataloging the items into evidence Wednesday afternoon, but the synthetic substances will be destroyed in the near future. “An order for destruction will be sought by the court and when received, the products will be safely disposed of,” he said. critical statement Tuesday night. He followed up with morning remarks in which he blasted the adminis-tration’s initial statement from Cairo as disgraceful and “akin to apology.” He added, “It’s never too early for the United States government to condemn attacks on Americans and to defend our values.” Appearing in Jacksonville, Fla., Romney quickly broadened his remarks to emphasize other disagreements he has with Obama on nation-al security issues, citing “differences of opinion with regards to Israel and our policies there; with regards to Iran, with regards to Afghanistan, with regards to Syria.” The events unfolded with less than eight weeks remaining in the race for the White House, a cam-paign that has been close for months and appears likely to be settled in fewer than 10 battleground states. The state of the economy has been the top issue by far from the beginning of the race, and recent sur-veys suggest Romney holds a narrowing advantage over the president when it comes to plans for reduc-ing the nation’s unemploy-ment rate of 8.1 percent. The situation has long been different on for-eign policy. Asked in a Washington Post-ABC News poll last week which candidate was better suit-ed to handle international affairs, registered voters picked Obama by a mar-gin of 51 percent to 38 percent. The Republican challenger has worked to whittle away at that defi-cit, and he made a heav-ily publicized overseas trip early this summer as part of his effort. He drew mixed reviews at best— reproached by British offi-cials, for example, when he appeared to question prep-arations for the Olympic Games in London. Nor has Obama ceded any territory. Speeches and video presentations at last week’s Democratic National Convention were heavily stocked with refer-ences to the daring raid the president ordered more than a year ago that resulted in the death of ter-rorist mastermind Osama bin Laden. Romney, on Wednesday, defended his decision to issue his criticism Tuesday night, at a time it was not yet known that Stevens had been killed. Asked if he would have done so had he been aware of the deaths, he said, “I’m not going to take hypotheticals about what would have been known and so forth.” Gordon Johndroe, a national security aide dur-ing George W., Bush’s presidency, said Romney’s reaction as a candidate was quicker than he would be able to make if he were president. “Events happen quickly but the information at first is very vague and uncertain. You don’t know who has done the attack, how many people, who was attacked, were people just injured or killed. It takes a while for information to come through, and you have to be very careful and cautious when responding.” While Obama initially chose not to respond to Romney, he shed his reluc-tance later in the day and compared Romney’s reac-tion unfavorably to the way many other Republicans responded. “And so I think if you look at how most Republicans have reacted, most elect-ed officials, they reacted responsibly,” Obama said. “Waiting to find out the facts before they talked, making sure that our No. 1 priority is the safety, the security of American personnel. It appears that Gov. Romney didn’t have his facts right.” Top Republican leaders in Congress did not come to Romney’s defense as they — like the GOP chal-lenger and the president — mourned the deaths of the fallen diplomats. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said Obama “correctly tightened the security overseas.” Asked about Romney’s remarks, he declined to answer and walked toward his office in the Capitol. House Speaker John Boehner issued a brief statement condemning the violence against the U.S., as did Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia, but neither included any reference to the president. Romney’s account didn’t mesh completely with events in Cairo. The embassy statement that he referred to as akin to apology was issued by the embassy in Cairo at midday on Tuesday at a time the staff was aware of still-peaceful demonstra-tions in the area nearby. It was four or five hours later when the mob breached the compound’s walls and tried to burn a U.S. flag. The embassy statement condemned “the continu-ing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the reli-gious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions,” and noted that religious freedom is a cornerstone of American democracy. Romney added that the White House later “dis-tanced itself” from the statement, saying it hadn’t been cleared by senior officials in Washington. “That reflects the mixed signals they’re sending to the world.” Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, in an interview later in the day, also said the initial statement had come as the embassy was under attack. “I disagree with the original statements that the embassy put out — that the administration put out in Cairo sympathizing with the people who were storming the embassy. We should stand up for our values,” he said. While top Republican leaders in Congress avoid-ed criticism of Obama, other GOP lawmakers were not as reluctant. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., noted the timing of the events and said, “America has suffered as a result of President Obama’s fail-ure to lead and his failed foreign policy of appease-ment and apology.” Rep. Howard P. (Buck) McKeon of California said: “Again and again under President Obama we have met threats and thugs with apologies and concessions. Unsurprisingly, these mobs aren’t satisfied with apolo-gies any more. They have clearly been escalating the offensive in the war of ideas for some time.” n Associated Press writers Ben Feller in Florida, Steve Peoples in Boston and Philip Elliott, Kasie Hunt, Donna Cassata, Jim Kuhnhenn, Matthew Lee, Ken Thomas and Deputy Director of Polling Jennifer Agiesta in Washington con-tributed to this story. nect with all music fans.

HILLEL ITALIEAP National WriterNEW YORK — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is a working on a book about one of the Republican Party’s most contentious issues: immigra-tion. Bush has a deal with Threshold Editions, a conservative imprint of Simon & Schuster, for “Immigration Wars: Forging An American Solution.” Threshold announced Wednesday that the book is scheduled for next spring and will be co-authored by conservative attorney and activist Clint Bolick. Financial terms were not disclosed. “Drawing upon history and American ideals, Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick outline a courageous and com-prehensive strategy to bridge the partisan divide and set our nation’s immigration policy on a just and rational course,” Threshold said in a statement. “The book will present a comprehensive solution based on two core principles: Immigration is vital to America’s future, fueling its growth, vibrancy and creativity; yet any true and enduring solution must adhere to the rule of the law.” The 59-year-old ex-governor has been urging his fellow Republicans to take on a more moderate tone on immigration, saying hard-line policies have led to lost elections.

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2012 7A 7AHEALTH By MATTHEW PERRONE AP Health Writer WASHINGTON Are you falling asleep after dinner? Do you have a decrease in libido? Have you noticed a recent deterioration in your ability to play sports? It could be Low-T. Welcome to the latest big marketing push by U.S. drug companies. In this case, its a web page for Abbott Laboratories Androgel, a billion-dollar selling testoster one gel used by millions of American men struggling with the symptoms of growing older that are associated with low testos terone, such as poor sex drive, weight gain and fatigue. Androgel is one of a growing number of prescription gels, patches and injec tions aimed at boosting the male hormone that begins to decline after about age 40. Drugmakers and some doctors claim tes tosterone therapy can reverse some of the signs of aging even though the safety and effectiveness of such treatments is unclear. The problem is that we dont have any evidence that prescribing testosterone to older men with relatively low testosterone levels does any good, says Dr. Sergei Romashkan, who oversees clinical trials for the National Institute on Aging, a part of the National Institutes of Health con glomerate of research centers. Low testosterone is the latest example of a once-natural part of getting old that has become a target for medical treat ment. Bladder problems, brittle bones and hot flashes have followed a similar path: from inconvenient facts of life, to ailments that can be treated with drugs. The rise of such therapies is being fueled by both demographics and industry marketing. Baby boomers are living longer and looking for ways to deal with the infirmi ties of old age: Life expectancy in the U.S. today is 78 years, up from 69 years a half-century ago. And companies have stepped up their marketing to the older crowd: Spending on print and television ads promoting testosterone by firms like Abbott and Eli Lilly has risen more than 170 percent in the last three years to more than $14 million in 2011, according to advertising tracker Kantar Media. Doctors say thats led to an increase in men seeking treatment for low testoster one. Prescriptions for the hormone have increased nearly 90 percent over the last five years, according to IMS Health. Last year, global sales reached $1.9 billion. People are living longer and want to be more active, says Dr. Spyros Mezitis, a hormone specialist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York. They no longer consider that because theyre older they shouldnt have sexual intercourse. Former marathon runner Damon Lease, 50, had been complaining of low energy and depression, for which his doctor pre scribed a combination of four psychiatric drugs. But since he started taking twicea-week testosterone injections in May, he says hes been able to stop taking two of the medications and hopes to eliminate them completely. He says he has more energy, improved mood and concentra tion. I spent 27 years running long distanc es, I like biking, I like hiking, and I guess every guy wants to have an active sex life ... I want to keep doing those things as long as I can, says Lease, who works as a software company executive. I feel 20 years younger. MASS-MARKET HORMONE Despite its rising popularity, testosterone therapy is not completely new. Testosterone injections were long used for men with hypogonadism, a disorder defined by low testosterone caused by injury or infection to the reproductive or hormonal organs. But the latest marketing push by drug makers is for easy-to-use gels and patches that are aimed at a much broader popula tion of otherwise healthy older men with low testosterone, or androgen deficiency. The condition is associated with a broad range of unpleasant symptoms ranging from insomnia to depression to erectile dysfunction. Drug companies peg this group at about 15 million American men, though federal scientists do not use such estimates. Watson Pharmaceuticals now markets its Androderm patch, which slowly releases testosterone into the bloodstream. Abbott has its gel that can be applied to the shoul ders and arms. And Eli Lillys Axiron is an underarm gel that rolls on like deodorant. Androderm, launched last year, had $87 million in sales, and Axiron, which was launched in 2010, had sales of $48 million last year. All of a sudden youve got these big players with a lot of money using con sumer directed marketing to change the landscape, said Dr. Natan Bar-Chama, a male reproductive specialist at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. They see the poten tial, they see the market growth annually and its very impressive. But government researchers worry that medical treatments have gotten ahead of the science. Male testosterone is mainly produced in the testes and affects muscle mass, sperm production and various sexual char acteristics. The hormone can easily be checked with a blood test, but doctors cant agree on what constitutes a low reading in older men. Typical testosterone levels for younger men range between 300 and 1,000 nanograms per deciliter, but once levels begin dropping there is little consensus on what makes a normal number. Some doctors believe testosterone lev els below 300 lead to sexual dysfunction in older men, but the rule does not cover all cases. A 2010 study by researchers at the University of Manchester and other European institutions found that 25 percent of men with testosterone levels above that threshold had the same sexual problems used to diagnose low testosterone. Adding to the ambiguity is that testosterone levels change by the hour, so a man who takes a blood test for testosterone in the morning may get a completely different reading when tested in the afternoon. SAFETY CONCERNS Adding to the confusion over what defines low testosterone, theres not much understanding of whether testoster one replacement therapy actually improves mens symptoms. Evidence of the benefits of testosterone is mixed, and the potential health risks are serious. The largest study conducted to date, a 2008 trial involving 230 patients in the Netherlands, found no improvement in muscle strength, cognitive thinking, bone density or overall quality of life among men taking testosterone. Muscle mass increased 1.2 percent, but not enough to improve physical mobility. The National Institute on Aging is cur rently conducting an 800-man trial to defini tively answer whether testosterone therapy improves walking ability, sexual function, energy, memory and blood cell count in men 65 years and older. But those results arent expected until 2014. In addition to concerns about testos terones effectiveness, the long-term side effects of the hormone are not entirely understood because most trials to date have only followed patients for a few months. But the most serious risks include heart problems and prostate cancer. In fact, all testosterone drugs carry a warning that the hormone should not be given to men who have a history of prostate cancer. History has shown that hormone replace ment therapy can be dangerous. That hit home for women in 2002 when a landmark study shook up the conventional wisdom about the benefits of estrogen replacement therapy for menopause, the period when women stop producing eggs and the hor mone estrogen. The federal study found that women taking hormone pills were more likely to suffer heart attacks, breast cancer and strokes. Doctors now gener ally recommend hormones only to relieve severe symptoms in the lowest possible dose and for the shortest possible time. In the case of testosterone, Abbott Laboratories says Androgel and other drugs like it are an important treatment option for men with low levels of the hor mone. But the company acknowledges that more study is needed. Abbott believes that the long-term effects of testosterone replacement therapy should be studied, which is why we continu ally fund and support additional clinical tri als, such as the National Institute of Agings testosterone trial, the company says. Doctors who prescribe testosterone say more men should be talking to their doctors about the hormone. If an older man feels excessively tired or his erectile dysfunction has worsened he should be asking Is there something wrong with my testosterone? says Mezitis of Lenox Hill Hospital. The awareness should be much broader than it is at this point. Even critics of the testosterone craze acknowledge that the interest in anti-aging products may be inevitable as life expec tancy increases. But they say doctors can do more to help seniors by focusing on lifestyle adjustments that keep them con nected to their friends and family, rather than prescribing drugs. We really medicalize seniors so much that they think the secret always has to be scientific, says Dr. Nortin Hadler of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who has written four books on excessive medical care. We need another perspec tive to understand the secrets to healthy aging, which by and large are not pills. The drug Axiron. an underarm gel that rolls on like deodorant, is one drug used by men strug gling with symptoms of growing older associated with low testosterone such as poor sex drive, weight gain and fatigue. Its one of a growing number of prescription gels, patches and injections aimed at boosting levels of the male hormone that begins to decline in men after about age 40. Testosterone marketing frenzy draws skepticism ASSOCIATED PRESS By RICARDO ALONSOZALDIVAR Associated Press WASHINGTON It sounds like good news: Annual premiums for jobbased family health plans went up only 4 percent this year. But hang on to your wal lets. Premiums averaged $15,745, with employees paying more than $4,300 of that, a glaring reminder that the nations problem of unaffordable medical care is anything but solved. The annual employer survey released Tuesday by two major research groups also highlighted another disturbing trend: employees at companies with many low-wage work ers pay more money for skimpier insurance than what their counterparts at upscale firms get. Overall, its historically a very moderate increase in premiums, said Drew Altman, president of the Kaiser Family Foundation, which conducted the survey with the Health Research & Educational Trust. He quickly added: But even a moderate increase feels really big to work ers when their wages are flat or falling. The rise in premiums easily outpaced workers raises and infla tion. Following a 9-percent hike in premiums last year, the 2012 increase quickly became fodder for the political debate. Republicans said President Barack Obamas promises to control health care costs ring hollow in light of the findings. But the most significant cost-control measures in Obamas law have yet to take effect, and the pres idents big push to cover the uninsured doesnt start until 2014. Those measures include a new tax on the most expensive insurance plans and a powerful board to keep Medicare spend ing manageable. Trying to head off crit ics, the administration issued a report estimating that consumers have saved $2 billion as a result of the health care law. Thats due to a combination of insur ance rebates for employers and individual policy hold ers, as well as closer state oversight of proposed rate increases, facilitated by Obamas law. Still, the Kaiser survey shows premiums for jobbased family coverage rose by nearly $2,400 since 2009 when Obama took office, with a correspond ing increase of nearly $800 for employee-only cover age. We arent happy to see any increase in health insurance premiums, said Gary Cohen, head of the administrations Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, adding that officials are heartened it was only a modest rise this year and look forward to slowing costs as more provisions of the health care law take effect. Most independent experts say the fact that premiums keep rising faster than overall inflation reflects underlying problems with the health care system that have frustrated policymak ers of both parties for years, as well as corporate benefit managers. Premiums for family health plans hit $15,745

By DAVID B. CARUSO and JENNIFER PELTZ Associated Press NEW YORK The era of the supersized cola may come to an end in New York City on Thursday, when health officials are expect ed to approve an unprec edented 16-ounce limit on sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, delis and movie theaters. But will it actually translate into better health? Doctors and nutrition experts said the regula tions success or failure may depend on more than just the modest number of calories it might slash from peoples diets. It will hinge on whether the first-in-thenation rule starts a con versation that changes atti tudes toward overeating. Ultimately it does come down to culture, and it comes down to taking some first steps, said Dr. Jeffrey Mechanick, a professor at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine who has studied the effect of government regulation on the obesity epidemic. There are so many fac tors that are acting in this complex disease. Obesity is not just a disease simply of people drinking too much sugary soft drink, he said. Just attacking one thing, individually, isnt going to do much. But if the rule is part of a broader social and scien tific assault on the dangers of too much sugar, he said, it could be tremendously effective. He likened it to the drumbeat about the dangers of smoking, which took decades to translate into results. People talk about it. It gets ruminated at social parties. It gets ruminated in politics and the media. And all of a sudden, you have an awareness, he said. City health officials say that by restricting portion sizes for sugary beverages, they are taking on one of the leading culprits in the national fat problem. Since the mid-1970s, Americans have increased their daily intake by 200 to 300 calories while getting less exercise a couchpotato lifestyle that has left the country with epidemic levels of obesity and dia betes. While plenty of foods contribute to the problem, some experts believe soft drinks deserve a greater share of the blame, in part because the body doesnt scream, Im full! when someone downs a 32-ounce soda, even though it has more calories than a typical fast-food cheeseburger. The standard soda has gone from a 12-ounce can in the 1980s to a 20-ounce bottle today. This is the largest single driver of the obesity epi demic, said New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley said. It is the largest source of added sugars to our diet. The math behind the ban is simple: A 16-ounce Coke has 200 calories. A 20-ounce Coke has 240 calories, or about 30 more than a Hershey bar. If you drink a soda per day as do 46 per cent of Bronx residents, according to one recent Health Department sur vey choosing the 16ounce bottle rather than the 20-ounce would save you 14,600 calories a year, or the equivalent of 70 Hershey bars. That is enough to add about four pounds of fat to a persons body. To burn off those extra calories, an average-size woman would have to walk about 340 miles. New York City health officials arent actually expecting an effect that large, in part because the ban doesnt apply to sodas sold in grocery stores. But if the average New Yorker decreased soda consumption from 20 ounces to 16 ounces only once every two weeks, that would still be enough to prevent roughly 2.3 million pounds of weight gain in the city every year, Farley said. The rule, which would take effect next March, would have its biggest effect on fast-food joints like McDonalds, where a 16-ounce drink is consid ered a small. (A 21-ounce is a medium and a 32-ounce is a large.) The new rules would be enforced through the citys existing system for inspecting restaurants. Restaurants with self-serve soda fountains will be restricted to giving out 16ounce cups, but free refills will still be allowed. McDonalds would not discuss the possible effect on soda sales or how it might reconfigure cup sizes. It issued a statement expressing displeasure with the proposed rule but declined to say whether it would fight it. Some advocates for the beverage and restaurant industries have said they are contemplating suing to halt the ban. Public health issues cannot be effectively addressed through a narrowly focused ban, McDonalds said in its statement. Many doctors would agree. The rule, for example, doesnt apply to alcohol, which some studies have indicated plays a larger role in obesity among adults. Nor does it address the thousands of other things we eat that are ter rible for us, such as potato chips or fries. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 8AHealth Offer expires: Sept. 30 2012 Wednesday 9/12 ...9am to 5pm Thursday 9/13 ...9am to 5pm Friday 9/14... 9am to 5pm Saturday 9/15... 9am to 5pm Holiday Inn & Suites 213 SW Commerce Dr. Lake City, FL 32025 NYC ban on big, sugary drinks could help Protester Eric Moore sips on an extra-large beverage during a protest against Mayor Michael Bloombergs proposal to prohibit licensed food establishments from using containers larger than 16 ounces to serve high-calorie drinks at City Hall in New York.

The Bulldogs are 6-3 against Fort White, includ ing s 3-2 record against head coach Demetric Jackson. The Indians lost a 35-28 shootout in Perry last year. Fort White tied the game with 2:49 left to play, then Taylor County scored the winning touchdown with 27 ticks on the clock. Both teams made the playoffs last year with Taylor County losing in the first round to Yulee High. Taylor County is in District 1-4A and last week lost at home to 5A Wakulla High, 41-20. Daniel Wentworth threw a pair of touchdown passes for the Bulldogs in the game. In week one, also at home, the Bulldogs rallied from a 19-7 halftime deficit to beat Dixie County High, 20-19. Senior Jake Smyrnois, who had two carries against Fort White last year, ran for 147 yards on 14 carries. Jaymonte McLoed had two touchdowns from Wentworth among his six receptions. Luke Kallschmidt returned an interception 25 yards for a touchdown. Juniors McLoed and Kallschmidt are up from the JV. Wentworth was a sopho more back-up last year. Taylor County also beat Trinity Catholic High, 4237, in this years kickoff classic game. Wentworth threw for 270 yards and five touch downs and Kallschmidt had another defensive touch down this one a 52-yard fumble return that decided the game. Taylor County is coached by Ryan Smith, who took Gainesville High to the play offs in 2009-10, then moved to DeLand High last year and had those Bulldogs in the playoffs. Taylor County has made 12 appearances in the state playoffs with the first in 1968. The Bulldogs won the Class 3A state title in 1997 under Shaw Maddox, and were Class 3A runners-up in 1977 under Elmer Coker. Tiffany Bratcher said. We werent able to do anything that we wanted to do. Columbia will travel to Lee High at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow while Fort White hosts Lafayette at 6 p.m. Tigers golf Columbia High moved to 5-1 on the season with a tri-match vic tory against Buchholz and Trinity Christian at Ironwood Country Club in Gainesville. The Tigers picked up a 14-stroke victory against Buchholz with a 334 in the match. Trinity Christian finished third. Im a little disappointed in our scores to be hon est, Columbia coach Steve Smithy said. I dont think we played up to our capa bility. We had a bad mental day and didnt manage the course. We have to dictate our own scores. Dean Soucinek finished with medalist honors at 80 on the day. Dillan VanVleck finished second with an 82 followed by Tim Bagley with an 85.

DEAR ABBY: My father left my mother after 32 years of marriage. To say Mom was devastated would be putting it mildly. She tried to keep things cordial for the sake of her four kids, but Dad spurned her efforts. My three brothers and I are now married with children of our own. Only recently have I been able to express how ashamed I am of myself and my siblings for the despicable way we have treated our mother for the past 17 years. Dad was always arrogant, but he became even worse when he came into money. In our lives, Dad became No. 1. The reason? You guessed it -the money. We put our mother down every chance we got, and our spouses chimed right in. We visited her only once or twice a year and never repaid the money she lent us. She knew she wasn’t wanted or respected. Dad is clueless to the fact that we hang around only because of what we can get (and have gotten) from him. This is still true of my brothers, but I no longer want any part of this cha-rade. Mom is gone now. No, she hasn’t passed away. She quietly moved out of our lives and I don’t know where she is. I don’t blame her for leaving. The abuse she took from us shouldn’t happen to a dog. When I look back, I remember a mother who held a full-time job, kept a marvelous home, was a great cook and had a wonderful laugh and sensitivity. She didn’t smoke, drink or cheat on Dad. Was she perfect? Of course not; none of us is. All she wanted after the divorce was to be loved by her kids and spend time with her grandkids. Now the grandkids are growing up without knowing this wonderful woman. Mom, if you see this letter, I LOVE YOU DEARLY. I hope you can someday forgive me for all the years of hateful remarks and unkind deeds. -MISSING MY MOM IN SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. DEAR MISSING: If you’re truly sorry, it’s time to tell your mother person-ally and ask her forgive-ness. Do whatever it takes to locate her, including hiring a private detective if necessary. It may be expensive, but use some of the money you got from Dear Old Dad. DEAR ABBY: I am an 81-year-old grandmother who blindly trusted that my annual Pap smear exam would provide early detection for any type of uterine cancer. It took a diagnosis of uterine cancer that resulted in a subsequent hysterectomy for me to discover that this test is not enough. Although the Pap test should be part of a regular checkup, it only checks for cervical cancer. Except when hormone therapy is being taken, any bleeding, spotting or abnormal discharge following menopause is NOT normal and should be reported at once to your doctor. -GEORGIA GRANDMOTHER DEAR GRANDMOTHER: I’m pleased that your cancer was caught in time. However, whether a woman is preor post-menopausal -and whether or not she is on hormone therapy -she should IMMEDIATELY alert her doctor to any abnormal bleeding, spotting or dis-charge. These symptoms are not just warning signs of cancer. They could also indicate a polyp that needs removal, or a sexually transmitted disease. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Cheer up and do whatever it takes to make you happy. Don’t wait for someone else to do things for you. Consider what’s most important to you and make it so. Change begins within. Work hard, play hard and live life your way. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Deal with people directly and you will get things done to your specifi-cation. Preparation will pay off and lead to success. Greater opportunity is heading your way through the partnerships you form and the experience you have. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Wager the pros and cons before you jump into something that may or may not turn out in your favor. Stick to the familiar and take note of those trying to pressure you. Decisions must be made that suit you, not someone else. ++++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Size up your situation and stick to your game plan. It’s time to be a leader, not a follower. Acknowledge that you know what you want, fol-low through positively and you will gain comfort in the results you obtain. Proceed with passion. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): When it comes to emo-tional matters, you will be riding a roller coaster. Slow down, take a deep breath and take a moment to decide what you want. Making a change should be based on your needs, not revenge. Proceed posi-tively. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Refrain from overdo-ing it. Keep your thoughts out in the open and stand up for your rights, but don’t pressure others to do as you do or say. The best way to move forward is to believe in what you are doing. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Instigate what hap-pens next and you will take on a leadership position that brings you greater acknowledgment. You can change the way people view you by your actions, dedication and passion to make a difference. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take a step back and look at whatever situation you face. There are things you can do to improve your life and people willing to help you achieve your goals, but you have to be willing to accept what’s being offered. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Talks with so-called friends will lead you astray. You need to embrace change and take action based on the way you feel and what you want to accomplish. Personal change will lead to peace of mind and financial sta-bility. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can gain ground financially, but only if you are stringent in the way you spend and invest. Practical applications will pay off. Back away from anyone asking or demand-ing too much. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Taking on too much physically will hold you back mentally. You have to gauge your time and only do what you are capable of doing. Love is in the stars, and an emotional moment with someone special will enhance your relationship. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Listen and react cau-tiously. Getting involved in someone else’s affairs will put you in a precari-ous position. Concentrate on developing a creative hobby or goal that can turn into a moneymaking endeavor. Don’t waste time trying to change others. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Mini Dental Implants are titanium screws that can replace the root of missing teeth or stabilize loose dentures. Mini Dental Implants are thinner in size making the easier to t into resorbed bone. For Dentures and Partials, a housing is attached precisley inside your appliance to hold it in place securely with an O-ring and functions like a button does, snapping in and out. Mini Dental Implants may also be an excellent option for replacing missing teeth as a more aordable option than Standard Dental Implants. Missing Teeth? The Benefits of Mini Implants: Loose Dentures?

The rankings dont describe how close the two teams were at Citizens Field on Sept. 6. But rankings dont mat ter to Columbia head coach Brian Allen. As he told his team after the game, the Tigers ultimate goal is still out there. Columbia does want to get things back on the right track, however, after a myr iad of mistakes against the Hurricanes. Allen plans for fans to see a much better team when the Tigers take on Buchholz High at 7:30 p.m. on Friday at Citizens Field in Gainesville. The learning process has taken place this week with one of the most intense film studies of the year for the Tigers. Allen is interested to see how the Tigers respond. How we respond is to be determined, he said. During film study, you could hear a pin drop (from the players). Thats how we are supposed to act after a loss. We arent going to be in there singing Kumbaya or acting like its a merry Christmas. For Allen, this learning experience is a part of com ing together as a football team. Our players have to understand that this is a part of football, he said. We have to critically ana lyze everything we do. Were coaching them to learn from our mistakes and move ahead. He compared it to a similar lost last season that turned the Tigers sea son around after falling to Ridgeview High. Its similar to what we felt after Ridgeview, Allen said. We have to under stand what we have to do to be good. Last year, we were able to do that and move on and finish the season on a positive note by making the playoffs. Buchholz wont deter mine the Tigers playoff chances, but its the first step to recovery.
