From staff reportsA local man set himself on fire Thursday after attacking two people with a baseball bat, according to a sheriffs report. Robert Drew Manson, 49, was transported to Shands at the University of Florida for treatment of his injuries. His condition is unknown. He will be arrested on aggravated bat-tery charges upon his release, according to Sgt. Ed Seifert of the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, who said it is not believed Mansons injuries are life-threatening. Manson entered the bedroom of a SE Margaret St. home and struck his girlfriend with a bat, possibly breaking her arm, Seifert said. Manson then reportedly went to another bedroom and struck a man in the neck and face as he slept. Both victims were treated by emergency responders for non-life threatening injuries.

Campaign coffers swell as Election Day approaches MISSING continued on 6A FIRE continued on 6A By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comTropical Storm Debbys immense rains have cost Columbia County more than $11.6 million so far, a number that may climb as insurance and government claims are completed. Debby made landfall Tuesday, June 26 in Steinhatchee, dump-ing several feet of rain across North Florida. Localized rainfall reached 32 inches in some areas of Columbia County. Flooding entered homes, swamped vehi-cles and closed more than 100 area roads, including parts of Interstate 10. Columbia County officials were forced to spend $6.5 mil-lion after Debby, said Dale Williams, county manager. Of that, $5 million was in pub-lic works, including signs for flooded and washed-out roads, road repair, pumps, hoses and other equipment, he said. Thats typically where you are going to have your biggest expenses, Williams said. The other $1.5 million was used for other storm expenses, including mosquito spraying and staffing the Emergency Operations Centers Citizen Information Center, he said. Williams said the $6.5 million is just what the county paid out of reserves. It does not include volunteer work for social ser-vices or the labor and equipment brought in from outside agencies and water manage-ment districts. Williams said the county was fortunate to have the money in reserves, so officials could start projects without having to get a loan. The countys expenses could rise as there are still areas underwater that may need repairs, Williams said. The county is working on a claim for FEMA public assisCounty forced to spend more than $6 million locally.

Arthur Cleveland Coxe NEW YORK Lady Gaga launched her debut perfume while being inside a giant-sized perfume bottle. The avant garde pop star was in a large bottle a replica of her Fame fragrance appearing in the transparent glass where attend ees took photos and watched the singer get a tattoo on her neck. The entertainer entered the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on New Yorks Upper East Side on Thursday night on top of a convert ible. She posed for pictures and interacted with some fans. Inside, she laid in the bottle in a sparkly top, black skirt and red wig. Then she took off some clothing and a wig now appearing in lingerie, including a thong and began receiving a tattoo of the back of her neck (she shaved the bottom half of the back of her head this week). Gaga applied makeup and played on an iPad inside the bottle, where she was joined by four others. Edith Piaf played in background, as did David Bowies Fame and various songs that featured Kanye West. She got her tattoo and danced in her seat as Wests latest hit Mercy blasted in the background. The masquerade black tie event featured a few hundred people, mostly dressed with eye masks and headgear. Celebrity attendees included Yoko Ono, Marc Jacobs, Paris Hilton, Michael Strahan, Jason Wu and Lindsay Lohan, who arrived late for the event. Gaga also debuted a short film called Lady Gaga Film for the fra grance in collaboration with director Steven Klein. The Grammy-winning singer released her multiplatinum debut, The Fame, in 2008. That was fol lowed by the platinum-selling albums The Fame Monster and last years Born This Way. Pa. schools re-enact All the Right Moves game JOHNSTOWN, Pa. It took almost three decades, but the Ampipe Bulldogs football team finally evened the score even without Tom Cruise on the field. Two western Pennsylvania high school football teams re-enacted on Friday night the game in All the Right Moves that was filmed in Johnstown in 1983. There was even a second-half downpour and a fumbled snap, just like in the movie, the (Johnstown) Tribune-Democrat reported. But this time Ampipe won by three points rather than losing by two. Johnstown High School, playing as Ampipe, prevailed over Westmont Hilltop, playing the rival Walnut Heights, 20-17 before about 4,500 fans who crammed into Trojan Stadium for a commemora tion of the filming. Redstone gives $18m to Boston law school BOSTON Viacom Inc. Executive Chairman Sumner Redstone has donated $18 million to the Boston University School of Law. The money will be used to expand facilities, including the construction of a new building to be named after Sumner, a Boston native. The Redstone building will pro vide a new entrance to the law school, house the majority of the schools classrooms and provide space to expand the schools library. Billionaire Redstone is a former faculty member at the law school. In 1982, he created one of the first courses in entertainment law in the country. He also pioneered the schools curriculum for protecting intellectual property in the enter tainment industry. For more than 30 years, he has sponsored the Boston University Redstone Film Festival, which fea tures projects written and directed by students from the BU College of Communication. Colbert to students: I love my church NEW YORK In a rare public moment out of character, actor Stephen Colbert told students at the Jesuit Fordham University on Friday that he loves the Roman Catholic Church no matter its human flaws. The host of The Colbert Report talked about his faith in a discus sion on humor and spirituality with New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan and the Rev. James Martin, author of Between Heaven and Mirth and the official chaplain of Colberts show. Colbert, who has taught Sunday school classes to school-age chil dren, said people in comedy often dont understand how he could remain Catholic. But he said he views the church as teaching joy, which he called the infallible sign of the presence of God. I love my church warts and all, he said, before an audience of about 3,000 cheering students. In Tyrant, creator aims to meld fiction, fact PHILADELPHIA Hes a tyrant, born and bred, and Fabrizio Boccardi is happy with that. The entrepreneur is touting the fictional Michael Tiranno as a kind of anti-hero for the ages, spanning not just graphic novels and books, but ultimately films and real life, too. With Las Vegas as his base, Boccardi said this week that the Tyrant whose adventures were detailed in the novel The Seven Sins: The Tyrant Ascending by Jon Land will be expanding into com ics, games and other media, too, with a blend of fantasy, true crime, luxury and, of course, secrets. DC Entertainment is developing the characters growth in comics, while Boccardi, chief executive of King Midas World, hopes to one day meld fiction with fact and develop the casino in the story, dubbed Seven Sins. n Associated Press OLDSMAR Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan criticized the Federal Reserves newly announced plan to prop up the economy, tell ing a Tampa Bay crowd Saturday that sugar high economics wont help people. Ryan said the plan to spend $40 billion a month to buy mortgage bonds in an effort to keep interest rates low will fail to jumpstart the economy, just as President Barack Obamas $787 billion federal stimu lus fell short. When they do this to our money it under mines the credibility of our money, said Ryan, a Wisconsin congressman. This may help big banks, it may help Wall Street, but it doesnt help the rest of us who worry about what its going to cost to fill the gas tank, to cool the house in the summer and heat it in the winter, to buy food. The Federal Reserve launched its plan to keep interest rates low on Thursday. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney immediately criticized it. Ryan did the same as he spoke to about 2,000 people gathered in a park along Tampa Bays shoreline. We dont need sugar high economics, we dont need synthetic money cre ation, we need economic growth. We want wealth creation, we dont want to print money, Ryan said. Both Romneys and Obamas campaigns are heavily targeting Florida, the largest of the tossup states. Floridas 29 elector al votes are a huge part of Romneys victory strategy. Obama carried the state four years ago, but polls show a very close race, with Obama holding a slim edge. Medical waste washes ashore ORMOND BEACH Volusia County authori ties are trying to find out how medical waste washed ashore. Hypodermic needles and medicine bottles washed up on Harbor Beach near Ormond Beach on Friday. The items were scattered over a mile long and found by a beach goer. Beach patrol officers cleaned up the debris by Saturday morning. No one was injured. Authorities say high winds washed items ashore. Ex child welfare worker solicited sex NEW SMYRNA BEACH A former Florida child welfare investiga tor has been arrested in Pennsylvania for offering a woman a clean drug report in exchange for sex. A Volusia County Sheriffs Office report says 31-year-old Andrew Thomas was arrested at his home in Carlisle, Pa. on Friday on a warrant. Hes charged with bribery by a public servant, official misconduct and falsifying records. Thomas was a Florida Department of Children and Families investiga tor when he offered the woman his own urine for her drug test on May 8. Thomas resigned soon after and moved to Pennsylvania. Authorities say he con firmed to investigators what the victim told depu ties. Thomas was booked into the Cumberland County Prison in Pennsylvania where hes awaiting extradition to Volusia County. Authorities believe there may have been other vic tims in Florida. 6 boaters rescued in Gulf of Mexico CARABELLE The six people rescued after their boat took on water in the Gulf of Mexico are back on dry land. The Coast Guard res cued the group early Saturday about 25 miles from Carabelle in north west Florida. A call from the 43-foot boat Dirty Pool said the vessel was taking on water after leaving for a fishing trip Friday evening. The Coast Guard launched a helicopter and crew to locate the boaters in the water. The group used marine signal flares to alert the Coast Guard crew to their loca tion. All six were wear ing lifejackets and taken to the Apalachicola Bay Municipal Airport in Franklin County. Their conditions are not yet known. Chief Petty Officer Brenda Doris says the groups exceptional pre paredness greatly helped with the recovery efforts. Police: Mother, son beat up man NEW PORT RICHEY A mother and her 16year-old son were charged Saturday with attempted homicide and unlawful imprisonment after tying up and severely beating a Pasco County man whom the woman met on an Internet dating site, the sheriffs office said. Bobbie Jo Curtis, 40, and her son were also charged with aggravated battery and grand theft auto. They are being held in the Pasco County jail pending their first appearance Sunday morning. It was not imme diately known if they had an attorney. The teen is being charged as an adult. The pair was arrested early Saturday morning after authorities received a tip from someone at the motel where they were staying. New Port Richey police were called to the scene and the pair turned themselves in. Bobbie Jo Curtis met a 44-year-old man on a dating site, who invited her and her son to live with him. After about a week, the mother and son tied up and beat the man, according to a sheriffs office statement. The suspects and a third unidentified woman then stole items from the home, including guns. The unidentified man suffered serious head inju ries and remains in critical condition. A third suspect remains at large. We will not stop until shes arrested, Sheriff Chris Nocco said at a press conference. We do not want any more violence. We want her to turn herself in peacefully. The walls are closing in.

By TONY BRITT email@example.com The constant clatter of bowling balls meeting up with bowling pins is normal for a bowling alley. However, Friday morning the cheers from the audience often drowned out the sounds of falling pins. Smiles, high-fives and hugs and the phrase Good job or You did it were the dominants sights and sounds in the bowling hall as local Special Olympians made the most of their day in the sun. The 2012 Columbia County Special Olympics Fall Classic was held at Lake City Bowl on Friday where more than 100 Special Olympians took part.. In addition to the bowling portion of the competition, Thursday some Special Olympic athletes competed in power lifting at Columbia High School, which was also part of the Fall Classic. There were 137 children who registered to take part in the bowling portion of the 2012 Special Olympics Fall Classic. This year its the larg est group ever, said John Brown, Columbia County coordinator for Special Olympics. Children represented 10 schools/agencies during the competition including Niblack Elementary School, Five Points Elementary School, Lake City Middle School, Richardson Middle School, Columbia High School, Fort White High School and A Plus Learning Center, a first time partici pant, the Lake City cluster home, CARC and indepen dents, athletes not affiliated with the school system or group homes. Everyone seemed to have a fantastic time, Brown said. It was nice and cozy, we filled up the bowling alley and all of our administrators from differ ent schools came out and took part in our opening ceremonies. Paulette MacDonald was attending her first Special Olympics competition with her grandson and said she found the experience a rewarding one. I enjoyed it very much, she said. The kids are awe some. Im just awestruck how well these kids play. MacDonald said its important for the Special Olympians to have competi tions such as the fall games. It shows that they can accomplish things, she said. They can do it and it gives them self confidence and that they can continue in life. The next level of com petition for the Special Olympians will take place Sept. 27, for the Special Olympics Area Bowling competition in Gainesville. The winners from that competition will compete in Orlando, at the Disney Wide World of Sports for the state competition in November.

According to the exCouncilman, the two-step snake got its name because its venom was so powerful that its victims could not take more than two steps before dying. He said he escaped death only because he was helicoptered immediately to a hospital where they saved his life. Some Viet Nam vets consider the toxicity of the two-step snake an exaggeration. Others swear by the truth of it. Depending on who you talk to, the number of steps var-ies, from one to five, but sev-eral Nam vets at the local V.A. Medical Center were adamant about the astonishing potency of the snakes toxin. One man said he had read that just one of the snakes bites carries enough concentrated toxin to kill a dozen grown men. The formal name for this snake is the banded krait, a member of the cobra family. Its poison disables the victims nervous system, stills the dia-phragm, and causes death by asphyxiation the victim suf-focates. Another story I heard was that a Drill Instructor preparing his young soldiers for Viet Nam told them, There are 100 differ-ent poisonous snakes in Nam. 99 will kill you with one bite and the other one will squeeze you to death. That was probably an exaggeration used for dramatic effect. However, it would likely get a young soldiers attention both the Viet Cong and the snakes will be trying to kill you. Ex-Councilman Bowden now serves on the staff of national Congresswoman Corrine Brown.Go Sandspurs!When High Spring had its own high school, the school nickname was Sandspurs. I often wondered how they came up with this unusual name and I got the answer from Rev. Morris Beck who conducted Richard Kahlichs recent funeral service. Rev. Beck said he and Richard grew up together in High Springs and both played on the football team. A require-ment for all team members was to pick the practice field and the game field free of sandspurs every day. Over the years, he said, the team spent almost as much time picking sandspurs as they did practicing football, so they asked the coach if they could just call themselves The Sandspurs and he agreed. And, Rev. Beck says, thats how the name was born.Museum thanksThanks to the family of Mary Antionette Hall for donating her 1924 CHS diploma to our School Museum. There are only a precious few of those diplo-mas still around which makes it all the more valuable. By the way, during that school year our school sys-tem had both a County Board of Education (President L.C. Owens) and a City Board of Education (President R. B. Harkness) but just one super-intendent, County Supt. J. W. Burns. The CHS Principal was D. C. Trexler.Professor W.B.FeagleThe late W. B. (William Barnett) Feagle of Fort White became one of Floridas out-standing educators. He served as high school principal in Lake City, Clearwater, White Springs, High Springs, Winter Park, Cross City, Tarpon Springs, and other cities. Wherever he served he was praised statewide for his education leadership. I have several excellent 8 x 10 photos of Professor Feagle and I would be glad to give them to any of his relatives still living in this area.

Low Self Esteem Support Group will meet Thursday at 7 p.m. Please enter by the back door. Morris WilliamsPhone: (386) firstname.lastname@example.org W. Duval St.Lake City, FL 32055 Q Morris Williams is a local historian and long-time Columbia County resident. B elieve it or not, this is news: The House, quietly and without rancor, on Thursday passed a $500 billion spending bill to pay for running the U.S. government for the next six months. The Senate is expected to easily clear the measure next week. If you have a normal life with the normal American preoccupations, you prob-ably didnt notice the House action. Nonetheless, it was a significant event, and not just because its very likely the last major bill Congress will enact before the election. Without that bill -technically called a continuing resolution -the government would shut down Oct. 1, the start of its fiscal year. And the House measure passed, 329-91, with support from the normally rambunctious GOP freshmen and even some members from the partys radical Tea Party wing. The Associated Press said it represented a retreat by Tea Party Republicans, since the stopgap measure permits spending at a pace thats $19 billion above the stringent budget plan authored by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., his partys vice presidential nominee. In fact, Ryan broke off from the campaign trail to return to Washington -and voted for the measure. If Congress werent so dysfunctional, this stopgap measure wouldnt have been necessary. The government is funded by 12 appropria-tions bills that are supposed to be passed by late summer, mid-September at the latest. Rarely does Congress meet that deadline. This year, the House passed seven of them; the Senate, abysmally, none. There is plenty of blame to go around. And during the run-up to the election, the campaigning lawmakers will spend plenty of time spread-ing it. In their nearly two years as the dominant force among House Republicans, the fresh-men have used the threat of voting against must-pass mea-sures -such as the increase in the debt limit -to try to force changes they back, typi-cally steep cuts in the budget. But cooler heads in the party decided that the last thing the GOP needed on the eve of an election was to be perceived as obstructionist. This is the fiscal cliff Congress faces. The parties must join hands and walk back from it or join hands and jump off of it. Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service. Dale McFeattersmcfeattersd@shns.com S ecretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is emphatic that the anti-Islam video Innocence of Muslims is disgusting. This happens to be what most Americans feel about our flag being desecrated. For some reason, foreign governments dont heap praise on the United States and its traditions every time their people com-mit acts of disrespect toward us. U.S. politicians could learn from their example. In belated remarks Thursday marking the end of Ramadan, Mrs. Clinton expressed official disapproval of the film which has been blamed for the lat-est wave of anti-U.S. violence in the Muslim world. She made a reasonable point that people shouldnt respond with violence when their religion is denigrated. Unfortunately, though, we arent dealing with reasonable people. Islamists dont care about the Western tradition of tolerance, To them, it is one of our countrys many faults. No amount of pandering to Islam or commiserating with Muslim mobs locked in their latest bout of faux outrage will stop tragedies like the Benghazi murders from happening. Radicals will always find a pretext for vio-lence, whether literature like The Satanic Verses, Koran burnings, a cartoon or some innocent, offhand reference to Muhammad. The United States is a free country; at any given time, some American might do something hothead-ed radicals can use to push their hateful agenda. What will happen when Islamists find out there is a bas-relief sculp-ture of Muhammad on the north frieze of the Supreme Court building? Demand it be taken down? With Shariah on the march, perhaps putting distance between the high court and Islam is a good idea. A mbassador J. Christopher Stevens was the sort of U.S. diplomat who makes a difference. Fluent in Arabic, he roamed the streets of Tripoli and Benghazi, listening more than talking. When he did speak, he pushed hard for Libyans to embrace liberal democracy and for the United States to stand behind those who took up that cause. In the wake of his tragic death, the biggest threat to U.S. interests in the Middle East is not that more embassies will be assaulted and more envoys killed. It is that, out of fear of that prospect or anger at what occurred, the United States will not follow Mr. Stevenss example. Misunderstanding of the anti-American demonstrations, which continued to spread in the Arab world on Friday, could easily lead to poor decisions in Washington. The protests should be seen not as a popular uprising against an obscene but obscure film, or as a general rejection of the United States, but as part of a struggle for power in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and other countries where the old autocratic political order has been demolished. Militant Islamic movements, which in several of those coun-tries have been losing ground to more moderate Muslims and liberal forces, seize on pretexts such as the anti-Muslim film to mobilize against their political enemies, exploiting widespread misconceptions among Arabs about the United States and its policy toward the Islamic world. By design, they force more moderate Islamists, such as new Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood, to bal-ance their desire for construc-tive relations with Washington against the competition with militants for popular support. That squeeze helps to explain, if not to excuse, Mr. Morsis slow and ambiguous response to the initial protests in Cairo. The intelligent U.S. response to these circumstances is not to cut off aid to Egypt as some in Congress demand or to pressure Mr. Morsi for difficult but largely symbolic statements or acts. It is to undermine the extremists strategy by refuting the attempts to portray U.S. society and government as anti-Muslim; by pragmatically work-ing with governments to renew economic growth and combat violent jihadists; and by continu-ing to support the liberal politi-cal movements that, as much as the Islamists, are fighting to win broad public support. President Obamas response to last weeks crisis largely followed that path. The administration repeatedly denounced the offending film while defending freedom of speech. Mr. Obama dispatched Marines to the region to pro-tect embassies and quietly pushed Mr. Morsi to adopt appropriate security measures while making it clear that the United States will continue to support economic develop-ment in Egypt. The administrations greatest failing during the Arab rev-olutions has been not displays of weakness, as Mitt Romney has charged, but excessive caution. It has been too slow to support legitimate movements for change, to back moderates over extremists and to take risks. The future of the Arab world is up for grabs; the United States should be doing every-thing it can to tilt it toward freedom. That means embrac-ing the example of Christopher Stevens.

Scott also said Friday night he would aim to boost the money that is available for schools for the 2013 school year. Scott proposed large cuts to school budgets during his first year in office. Scott made his comments after a twohour meeting with the states teacher union. Scott has been at odds with the Florida Education Association, which has challenged the governors moves on merit pay for teachers and changes to the state pension. The meeting at the governors mansion was the first time Scott had met with union leaders since coming into office. Union president Andy Ford said he was encouraged by the start of a dia-logue with the governor. Gov. Rick Scott talks with teachers while visiting Lexington Middle School on Wednesday in Fort Myers. The fate of Floridas public schools could soon be decid-ed at a landmark trial. After three years of legal wran-gling, the Florida Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to block a lawsuit that accuses the state of shortchanging Floridas public schools.

Witcher reportedly told authorities, during a tele-phone call and later corrob-orated witness statements, that he went into the home armed and without an invi-tation. It is not clear weather Kamrie Mitchell was at the residence when the inci-dent occurred, nor has the nature of her and Witchers relationship been clarified. Cameron did not identify Witcher as a suspect in Mitchells disappearance. He is being questioned like anyone who knows her is being questioned, Cameron said during a telephone interview earlier this week. While still in jail, Witcher was re-arrested Sept. 6 for failure to register as a sexual offender and fail-ure to comply with drivers license requirement for sex offender registration. He remained in the Suwannee County Jail as of Sunday. Witcher was convicted in 2003 and 2005 of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child under the age of 16 in Duval County. According to Alachua County Sheriffs Office officials, Witcher was also questioned in the disappear-ance of a woman who went missing from Gainesville more than four years ago. Art Forgey, an Alachua County Sheriffs Office public information officer, said Heather Maccrossen, reportedly Witchers girl-friend at the time, was reported missing in 2008. Maccrossen was 26 at the time of her disappearance. Weve looked for her nationwide, the initial report was filed here, Forgey said. She is believed to have gotten off the bus here in Gainesville. Maccrossen wasnt reported missing until December 2008, although she was last seen August 17, 2008, when she left Michigan to return to Florida. He (Witcher) was listed as her boyfriend when she was in Florida, Forgey said. She had gone back to Michigan in July 2007 and stayed there until August 2008 for the court appear-ance. The Maccrossen case remains open. She is still considered as missing, still entered as missing and its still an open case, Forgey said. Forgey said Alachua County authorities are not really familiar with the Mitchell missing person case, but he questioned Witchers possible role in both cases. Obviously its suspicious when you have two missing women and he was involved with both of them, Forgey said. Hes the one com-mon thread there. Kamrie Mitchell was reported miss-ing September 2. She is described as 5 feet 3 inch-es tall, weighing about 130 pounds. She has blue eyes with natural blonde hair, which is currently dyed brown. Her informa-tion has been entered into the National Database of Missing Persons. She has Kamrie tattooed on her left foot, Grams and a butterfly on her wrist and Layla with a footprint and birth-day tattooed on her right side.

The speakers talked to a crowd of close to 200 people who were attending a Tea Party meeting at the Taylor Building in western Columbia County. The Tea Party Express is the largest tea party politi-cal action group and is begin-ning a 25-state tour. The Tea Party Express and its supporters stand for six principles, party officials said: No more bailouts, reduce the size and intrusiveness of gov-ernment, stop raising taxes, repeal Obamacare, cease out-of-control spending and bring back American prosperity. The Tea Party Express travels with several speakers, enter-tainment and candidates. Were here to support Ted Yoho, said Amy Kremer, chair-man of the Tea Party Express, noting how the buses came to stop in Columbia County. Youve got a lot of conserva-tives up here in North Central Florida. Were asked to come all over the place. Florida is very important in this elec-tion cycle and this is ending four days of stops weve done across the state and now were headed north. The Tea Party Express, which was making its last scheduled stop in Florida with the Columbia County visit, is slated to visit 39 cities in 25 states within the next three weeks. The express plans to end its trip in California in early October. At least 10 speakers addressed the crowd in the Taylor Building, which includ-ed residents from Columbia, Suwannee and surrounding counties. Our message is: Washington is the problem; Washington is not the answer, and the people who are there dont get it and weve got to get President Obama a one term president..., Kremer said. John Lacquey, North Central Florida Tea Party president, said the Tea Party Express representatives con-tacted representatives from the local group about speak-ing in the area. They called about 2 or 3 days ago and said, We need a place to set up right quick like, he said. Lacquey seemed pleased with the events attendance and enthusiasm level by hav-ing the Tea Party Express in town. This excites everyone and plus they (speakers) did some teaching on ways to get everyone out to vote, he said. They got everybody excited about whats going on and they encouraged us and let us know that were not here by ourselves.

tance money, which could reimburse the county for expenses including debris removal, emergency pro-tection measures and the repair of damaged, public-ly-owned facilities. Williams said state officials saved Columbia County for last, as it had the most damage. The initial damage assessment figure for pub-lic assistance in the county was $7.2 million, accord-ing to Jessica Sims, pub-lic information specialist for the state Division of Emergency Management. The state manages the FEMA public assistance grants. So far, $4.1 million in FEMA Individuals and Households Program grants have been approved for Columbia County resi-dents, according to Jim Homstad, FEMA media relations specialist. In the 22 counties eligible for assistance, $24 million has been approved for the program, which can provide temporary hous-ing, damage repair, home replacement, personal property and other neces-sary disaster expenses. Hornstad said FEMA assistance is still ongoing as the agency can provide rental assistance for up to 18 months, as needed. The Individuals and Households Program pro-vides up to $31,400 to disas-ter victims when losses are not covered by insurance. The program is not intend-ed to restore damaged property to its original con-dition, but make it usable again, he said. The City of Lake City spent about $300,000 responding to Debby, said Gene Bullard, city safety and risk management director. That total includes labor, road repair, extra waste water treatment, equipment and supplies like concrete, pipes and fill dirt, he said. The majority of the expense was in paving and road repair, he said. Bullard said he hopes the area doesnt experience another storm anytime soon. They are a mess, he said. Flooding at Columbia High School cost the Columbia County School District $97,000 for a new gym floor, said Superintendent Michael Millikin. The district plans to file a FEMA claim for the floor and other minor flood-ing, as well as personnel costs for staffing the shel-ter opened at Richardson Middle School, he said. It is not yet clear how much damage Debby caused in homes and busi-nesses across the county. Estimates based on insured property losses are not yet available. ISO, most insurance companies source for property insur-ance risk information, has not released data on losses from the storm. State-run Citizens Property Insurances Corp. customers statewide have filed 4,759 claims for dam-age caused by Debby, total-ing $13.75 million as of Aug. 27, according to The Florida Current. Citizens is the states largest property insurer. The costliest hurricane, based on insured proper-ty losses to Florida, was 1992s Hurricane Andrew, according to the Insurance Information Institute, an insurance communication organization. It caused $24.5 billion in damage to the state in 1992, in 2011 dollars. Hurricane Wilma from 2005 ranks second, with $9.9 billion in insured losses in 2011 dollars, fol-lowed by 2004s Hurricane Charley, with $9 billion. Unusually severe natural or man-made disasters are designated catastrophes by the property insurance industry when claims are expected to reach $25 mil-lion and more than a cer-tain number of policyhold-ers and insurance compa-nies are affected, accord-ing to III.

By GARY FINEOUT,Associated PressTALLAHASSEE As Florida A&Ms Marching 100 quick-stepped across the grass, the sta-dium announcers voice would boom through the speakers to remind those in the stands that no one could match the show they were watching: Often imi-tated, never duplicated. This season, the words more commonly used to describe FAMUs famed marching band, which has performed at high-pro-file events like the Super Bowl, are disgraced and suspended. Saturday marked the first football game in decades without a half-time show of elaborate dances, booming percussion and thun-dering brass. The band will be absent for the entire academic year as part of the fallout from the hazing death of drum major Robert Champion. Champion died following a hazing ritual that took place follow-ing FAMUs last football game of 2011. Twelve former band members have been charged with felony hazing in connection with Champions beating. All have pleaded not guilty. The scandal has nearly paralyzed the school. The band has been suspended, and the long-time band director and univer-sity president have resigned. The school is being sued by Champions parents, who say uni-versity officials ignored a culture of hazing. University officials have responded by putting in a long line of new policies, including new requirements for band mem-bership and new requirements for all students at the school. More immediately, the university is trying to figure out how to entertain a fan base accustomed to dancing in the stands as the band played. They have turned to rappers, high school bands and DJs in an attempt to keep up attendance. Around here the band was everything, said Tracy Garrison, a native of Tallahassee who was tailgating outside of Bragg Memorial Stadium on Saturday. Al Lawson, an alumnus of FAMU and former state legisla-tor, said the absence of the band had left a void, and he was unsure the university could fill it. A lot of the fans as long as I remember say, I dont really come for the game but for the show at halftime, Lawson said. Its a major, major challenge. Lawson noted the university has worked hard in the weeks before the first home game against Hampton by reaching out to alumni and those who own local businesses to encourage them to come to the game. Lawson said he even bought extra season tick-ets this year. The (National Football League) has proven you dont need a band at halftime to draw fans, he said. Andre Brown, who lives in Tallahassee and has supported the team most of his life, acknowl-edged that its hard when you lose the 12th man. Robert Champion, a drum major in Florida A&M University s Marching 100 band, performs during halftime of a football game in Orlan do. Champion died after a hazing ritual following the final game of 201 1. As a result, the band will not perform at halftime during games in 2012.FAMU holds first home game without famed band ASSOCIATED PRESS
KASIE HUNT Associated Press WASHINGTON Republican activists are incredulous: Why cant Republican Mitt Romney seem to break open a tight race with President Barack Obama given the nations sluggish economy and con servative enthusiasm to beat the Democrat? He ought to be killing Obama, and hes clearly not doing that, said 32year-old R.J. Robinson, one of the thousands of activ ists attending the annual Values Voters Summit this weekend. He should be doing better. Added Mike Garner, a 27year-old hawking Reagan was right buttons at the meeting: If Romney loses this election, the party real ly needs to do some soulsearching. Their sentiments were echoed in interviews with more than a dozen GOP activists and social conser vative leaders who attend ed the annual gathering focused on social and cul tural issues and sponsored by the Family Research Council. The summit was filled with rhetoric meant to fire up the partys base voters. Romney needs them to turn out in force at the polls in November and, between now and then, to convince others to do the same through extensive get-out-the-vote grassroots canvassing in swing-voting states. To energize them, dozens of high-profile con servatives including former presidential candi date Rick Santorum and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor used their speeches to paint the 2012 race as a transformational moment in the countrys history and insist that the president is turning the nation into a place its found ers wouldnt recognize. Energy was high inside the hotel ballroom where the luminaries spoke. But frustration with Romney coursed through the hallways, where groups like the National Organization for Marriage and Americans United for Life promoted their policy positions and conserva tive pundits hawked their books. These so-called values voters are a core part of the Republican base. They have never fully warmed to the former Massachusetts governor, who previously supported abortion rights and is a Mormon, a faith many evangelicals view skeptically. Even so, many said they were cheered by Romneys selection of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, a social and fiscal conservative hero to many in this group, as a run ning mate. They said they were rallying behind the Republican ticket, though mostly because of a desire to beat a Democratic pres ident they like less than the Republican nominee. These activists said theyre launching bus tours, sign ing up voters and offering to organize in their church es to help the GOP win. But they worry that the candidate himself isnt doing enough to gain ground on Obama, who polls show has a slight edge nationally and in key states just seven weeks before the election. And they offered plenty of advice to Romney for changing the trajectory of the race in the coming weeks echo ing Republican presidential campaign veterans who over the past week have raised concerns about the state of the GOP nominees run and whether he was letting the race slip away from him. He needs to be more vis ible, said Dawn Hawkins, who works for the anti-por nography group Morality In Media. Even though Romney and his allies outspent Obama and his backers for months on TV in battleground states, Hawkins said: Hes not up on TV very often. He has very few ads running on TV and radio. Obama has ads everywhere. Tammy Baker, a mili tary spouse originally from Texas, said she thinks Romney should sit down for fireside chats with the American people so they can get to know him better. Im not talking boxers and briefs here, you know. Im not interested in that, she said. But I do feel that hes pretty rigid, and because of that we dont get a chance to really get to know that person. Bakers other piece of advice: Let Paul Ryan out of the box. Bryan Fischer, an official with the American Family Association, went even fur ther, accusing Romneys campaign of putting a bag over Paul Ryans head. Like others here, he warned that if Romney loses, the Republican Party is certain to undergo a tough period. Soul-search ing, self-reflection and tumult were the words others used. If the Republican Party loses this election, conser vatives will have had it, Fischer said. They will be done, finished. Romney did not appear in person at the Values Voters gathering this year, instead appearing via video. His cam paign clearly understands the nervousness among a group thats not Romneys natural constituency; it sent their favorite son Ryan to reassure them. Im not the only one who has told Mitt that maybe he needs to talk more about himself and his life, Ryan told the group Friday morning, to scattered laughter from the crowd. It wouldnt hurt if voters knew more of those little things that reveal a mans heart and his character. Conference organizers said Romney himself has made personal overtures to evangelicals recently. Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said that he met with Romney one-on-one about two months ago, and he told the Republican nomi nee he was prepared to tap a network of pastors and travel the country cam paigning for the nominee. When it comes to evan gelicals and Mormons, we have theological differ ences, and theyre signifi cant, and were not going to gloss over those, Perkins said. But we have a shared concern for this country. And we have a shared set of values that can help get the nation back on track. And thats what he is emphasiz ing and thats what I think he needs to continue to emphasize to draw social conservatives into his cam paign.

By STEVE MEGARGEEAssociated PressKNOXVILLE, Tenn. Florida is quickly devel-oping a reputation as the Southeastern Conferences comeback kings. Jeff Driskel threw two touchdown passes and Trey Burton ran for a pair of scores as No. 18 Florida scored the games final 24 points to beat No. 23 Tennessee 37-20 on Saturday night. The Gators have won eight straight against their SEC East rivals, and for the second straight week came from behind on the road to win a conference game. The Gators (3-0, 2-0) rallied from a 17-10 halftime deficit to win 20-17 at Texas A&M last week. Florida lost all five games it trailed at halftime last season. Gators coach Will Muschamp said theres a night-and-day difference in the toughness of this years Florida team. Im really proud of our effort, coming on the road two weeks in a row, Muschamp said. We were really poised at halftime again, no bickering (or) finger-pointing, just doing what we needed to do to get this thing going. Mike Gillislee ran for 115 yards to lead a 336-yard rushing effort for the Gators, who have outrushed Tennessee (2-1, 0-1) in each of their eight consecutive victories over the Vols. Burton added 91 rushing yards on only three carries. Driskel ran for 81 yards on eight attempts, and he also went 14-of-20 for 219 yards passing. Driskels 23-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Reed broke a 20-20 tie and put the Gators ahead for good with 30 seconds left in the third quarter. Burton had tied the game less than three minutes earlier with an 80-yard touchdown run. Florida then proceeded to outgain Tennessee 152-5 in the fourth quarter. Weve put a tremendous emphasis on winning the fourth quarter, winning the second half and wear-ing down our opponent, Muschamp said. Thats something weve been able to do in the first three ball-games. Thats something our kids have bought into. By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comTALLAHASSEE Florida State footballs ACC-id test will have to wait another week. Florida State destroyed Wake Forest on Saturday, 52-0, just as it did to the rent-ed I-AA teams it brought to Doak S. Campbell Stadium for the first two games of the season. The dominance of the Seminoles was complete. Florida State rolled up 612 yards on offense, and held the Demon Deacons to 126 yards in posting it second shutout of the season. Chris Thompson, who broke his back in this game last year, had touchdown runs of 74 and 80 yards and finished with 197 yards on nine carries. There was nothing like it, Thompson said. I have been pretty much wait-ing for this moment for a while. Thompson was met by head coach Jimbo Fisher on the sidelines. I just wanted to look into his eyes and tell him how much I cared for him, Fisher said. Hes a special guy and Im just so happy for him. Florida State had already started to put the hammer down when Thompson rushed for his two scores. The Seminoles played nice early, being content to punt twice while in Wake Forest territory to establish field position. On their third possession from the Demon Deacons 47, Wake Forests finger came out of the dike. Thompson ran for 33 yards on first down and EJ Manuel scored two plays later on a 16-yard option keeper. Florida State led 7-0 at 4:28 of the first quarter. Less than two minutes later, Rashad Greene returned a punt 60 yards for a touchdown. Thompson tacked on his two long runs early in the second quarter. Fisher began a slowdown when he sent Dustin Hopkins in for a 19-yard field goal with the Seminoles poised on the Wake Forest 1. With 1:07 left in the half, Manuel led a 44-yard touch-down drive after Wake Forest came up short on fourth-and-1. Manuel hit Rodney Smith in the back of the end zone from 20 yards out. Manuel added a third touchdown pass, this one from 17 yards to Kenny Shaw in the third quarter. Debrale Smiley scored on an 18-yard run in the fourth quarter. Wake Forest has always played us extremely tough and theyre a good football team, Fisher said. We struggled early on offense, then we relaxed and start-ed playing and things came together. We still have a lot of things we have to clean up, but Im very proud of the progress were making. Were heading in the right direction and we have to get ready to play a very good Clemson team next week.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE If Columbia High was trying to erase last weeks loss against Gainesville High on Friday against Buchholz High, the Tigers did every-thing in their power to vacate that memory. Columbia came out rolling and finished off the Bobcats, 55-14, at Citizens Field in Gainesville as the second part of its four-game-road stretch. Columbia head coach Brian Allen wanted to have the Tigers playing emotion-al, physical, run-controlled offense and it showed to the tune of 329 yards in the running game. Last week, we played emotional, but were per-haps a little too over joyous at the beginning, he said. I think we did a much better job of controlling our emo-tions this week after drop-ping the ball last week. From the beginning of the game, Columbia was hitting on both sides of the ball. After Buchholz received the kickoff, the Tigers defense set the tone early with Terry Calloway recov-ering a fumble on the first Columbia High dismantles Buchholz, 55-14.

Jimmie Johnson took an immedi-ate step toward another Sprint Cup title but the five-time champion is well aware it was a small one. Johnson won the pole Saturday for todays Sprint Cup race at Chicagoland Speedway, an impressive start for the man whose streak of five Cup titles came to an end last year. The Chase for the Sprint Cup begins with todays 400-mile event, but Johnson shrugged off any talk of an immediate statement. Its too early in the Chase to be over-the-top excited or down and out if you didnt qualify like you wanted to, Johnson said. Johnson qualified at 182.865 mph, good enough for his second pole of the year and 27th of his career. The other 11 drivers in the Chase had mixed results in qualifying. Matt Kenseth was third, one spot ahead of Dale Earnhardt Jr, and Kasey Kahne was sixth but Earnhardt will have to start from the back because of an engine change. I dont think we are super concerned, said Steve Letarte, Earnhardts crew chief. We had a great car in practice and qualified really well so we showed we have good speed. Fortunately, this is a race-track that there are mul-tiple pit strategies and its not a really simple straight-forward pit strategy to call. I think there will be a lot of opportunities to use our good pit stops and place on pit road to get back toward the front. Johnson has never won a Cup race at this track. If he can leave with a victory in the Chase opener, then that may be the time to celebrate a bit. I think a win sends a statement for sure. Im not so sure that its because I havent won here before, Johnson said. Ive been so close before, that I dont think the statement would really be in that. ... We know what wins mean, and we know what max points mean, and it would be more in that than anything. Denny Hamlin, the top seed in the Chase, was eighth, a spot ahead of Clint Bowyer.

Continued From Page 1Bthe drive that followed, but quickly got the ball back and began moving it. Quarterback Andrew Baker scrambled for 19 yards and threw to Michael Mulberry for 12 yards to convert a third-and-4. Baker added 15 more yards on a keeper to move the ball to the Bulldogs 25. A penalty and two plays for negative yardage had Fort White facing a third-and-23. Baker found Caleb Bundy over the middle for 26 yards and a first down. On third-and-9, Baker hit Reginald Williams coming out of the backfield for 11 yards and a touchdown. Nathan Escalante added the extra point for a 7-0 lead at 8:27 of the second quarter. We wanted to mix things up, Indians head coach Demetric Jackson said. Andrew managed the game great. He took what the defense gave us. The numbers wont show it, but he played a lot better than last week when he had big numbers. On its next possession, Fort White lost a fumble at its 20 and Taylor County moved to the 5 before settling for a 21-yard field goal by Chris Davis. Fort White was forced to punt and Melton Sanders exploded a 50-yarder to the end zone with less than a minute left in the quarter. The Bulldogs came out throwing and got one com-pletion. On the second try, Williams came on a blitz and hit he quarterback to force a fumble. Williams scooped up the ball and ran 19 yards for a touchdown with 17 seconds remaining before halftime. Sanders and Wentworth boomed punts back and forth in the third quarter. Mulberry fielded one punt of 50 yards and took a hit from a Taylor County defender. Mulberry put a hand on the ground to keep his balance then raced 53 yards for a touchdown. Escalantes PAT put Fort White ahead, 21-3, with five minutes left in the third quarter. We spend time on (special teams), Jackson said., You cant take anything for granted. The punt-a-thon continued until Fort White dropped a snap to lead to Taylor Countys only touchdown. Wentworth sneaked in on the fourth try from the 1, but there was no dan-ger of the Bulldogs putting up more points. We really showed up to play tonight, Jackson said.

Taylor, Williams fills several roles for Fort WhiteBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Reginald Williams was the fourth receiver to catch a pass on Fort White Highs scoring drive. The senior was in at fullback and slipped to the right side for an 11-yard touchdown reception. Williams also was in on the next play from scrim-mage this time as nose guard on defense. They put me at nose guard for speed, Williams said. I usually play outside linebacker on defense. It was from his linebacker spot that Williams made another big play for the Indians. Late in the first half, Williams came untouched on a blitz and introduced himself to Bulldogs quar-terback Daniel Wentworth. They bounced off each other, with neither going down, but the ball fell to the ground and Williams scooped it up and ran 19 yards for a touchdown. The touchdown with :17 left before intermission had to sour the second half for the visitors. It was a regular blitz that they called for me a Sam8, Williams said. I hit him and the ball popped out. I got happy and scooped it up and scored. Williams was one of five senior captains appointed by head coach Demetric Jackson for the game. I challenged him, Jackson said. I told him I am going to make you a captain and you step up and make some plays. He took on that challenge. Jackson said they practiced the fullback pass scor-ing play during the week, but Williams had other things on his mind. Every time this week he would go out and block somebody, but he remem-bered to look for the ball tonight when it really mat-tered, Jackson said. We put him at outside linebacker. He is so low to the ground when he hit you its like boom. We worked on it for me in practice and I had to focus and score for our team, Williams said about his scoring play. Williams is another senior that came from Santa Fe High to Fort White for a final year. It was a big decision, but Im glad I made it, Williams said. This team is more like a family. JASON MATHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort White Highs Kellen Snider (7) is tackled after runn ing the ball following an interception he made against T aylor County High on Friday.Indians defense redeems itself in 21-9 win over Taylor CountyBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Taylor County High not only had won three straight over Fort White High, the Bulldogs shredded the Indians defense last year. In that 35-28 loss, Fort White gave up 392 yards. The Bulldogs lost some seniors, but Moral Stephens was back and he caught three touchdown passes that totaled 134 yards in the 2011 game. On Friday, Stephens had one catch for nine yards. We didnt do anything different, the guys took it upon themselves to be up to the challenge, second-ary coach Shea Showers said. No. 3 (Stephens) has been offered by LSU and a couple of other teams in the SEC. Our guys said just let us play and they were flying around and making plays. Taylor County scored 20 points in each of its last two games, and also put up 42 points against Trinity Catholic High in the pre-season classic. Fort White held the Bulldogs to nine points and both scores came after lost fumbles. Taylor County quarterback Daniel Wentworth was 8-of-23 for 79 yards with an interception by Kellen Snider on a ball that slipped out of his receivers hands. Wentworth lost a fumble on a blitz that went for a touchdown by Reginald Williams. Cameron White and Blair Chapman had sacks for a combined loss of 19 yards. The Bulldogs rushed 31 times for 49 yards. Kenneth McCrary recovered a fumble for the Indians that might have gone for a touchdown except for an inadvertent whistle. Wentworth did keep the Indians somewhat at bay by averaging 48 yards on seven punts. The kids bought into what we are doing, defen-sive coordinator Ken Snider said. They were focused and they executed. A lot of football is mental and they played with emotion and played physical. They came prepared and had the right frame of mind, and you could see the results. It was a total team effort.
6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2012 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 6BSPORTS CHS: Puts the boot to Buchholz Continued From Page 1BBobcats possession. The recovery set up the Tigers offense at Buchholzs 39-yard line and it only took four plays for Columbia to strike. Braxton Stockton capped the drive with a 25-yard touchdown run and Braydon Thomas kicked the extra point for an early 7-0 lead with 8:23 remaining in the first quarter. The Bobcats mustered up their only first down of the first half on their next possession, but Columbias defense sank its claws in and the Tigers went back to work at their own 30-yard line. Jayce Barber bounced back from one of his worst games as a Tiger with one of his best halves of his career completing 11-of-14 passes for 108 yards and a touchdown before the break. It started with a 25-yard pass to Darren Burch and he ended the Tigers second drive with a 31-yard touchdown pass to Nate Ayers for a 14-0 lead. After a three-and-out, Columbia went back to the ground attack with Stockton. He had runs of 14 and 15 yards with the latter resulting in a touchdown and 21-0 lead. Columbia would miss a 32-yard field goal on its third possession, but that was its only blunder of the first half. On the fourth possession, the Tigers went back to the ground and turned to Lonnie Underwood to carry the load. He responded with a 27-yard run to start the drive and capped it with a four-yard scamper to the end zone to put the Tigers up 28-0 with 7:03 remaining in the second quarter. Bryan Williams snagged the first of two his intercep-tions to set up the Tigers at the nine-yard line to begin their next drive. After Barber hit Alex Webber to put the ball within inches of the end zone, Stockton punched it in for a 35-0 lead. The third quarter became a little slippery for Columbia as Buchholz ral-lied to within 35-14 after a botched special teams play gave the Bobcats the ball at the one resulting in a one-yard touchdown from Kenny Scott and an 80-yard drive capped off by Scotts three-yard run. If there was a downside to the game for the Tigers, this was it and Allen expressed his distaste for the way Columbia came out of the half after the game. We came out and played three and a half good quar-ters of football and really besides about three min-utes, Allen said. We took our foot off after the second quarter when we should have tried to close the door. We have to be able to execute in all three phases of the game. After the Bobcats drew within three scores, Columbia turned the engines back on. Ronald Timmons did the work with 69 rushing yards on the drive capped by a 36-yard score to extend the lead back to 42-14. A three-and-out by Buchholz gave Columbia the ball back at its own 41 and the Tigers continued to pound the rock. Timmons added his second scoring play of the game by tak-ing it in from 10 yards out to extend the Tigers lead to 49-14 to bring forth the running clock. After Williams second pick, Underwood added a 21-yard touchdown run for good measure and the Tigers went on to win 55-14 to end the Gainesville portion of Columbias road trip. The Tigers now turn their attention to the first district game of the season at Oakleaf High at 7 p.m. on Friday. Anytime an opponent has a chance to knock off a team as highly ranked as we are, theyre going to be ready, Allen said. We have to give them our best effort and go in hungry in front of their home crowd. We want to finish off this road trip off 3-1 after dropping our first game. Williams shines for CHS after number is calledBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE When teams arent in rebuilding mode and hitting on all cylin-ders, the phrase, next man up is often thrown around. After building a 35-0 lead during the first half against Buchholz High, Columbia High had the chance to test its next man up. Starting strong safety Trey Marshall went down with an ankle sprain and that gave Bryan Williams the chance to step into a crucial situation after the Bobcats cut the score to 35-14 in the third quarter. Coming into the game, not many people knew the name Williams, but he made sure to leave an impact with two interceptions. Well, first of all let me say, my name is Bryan with a Y, he said. When Trey went down hurt, I was dev-astated, but I knew I had to step up and make a play for my team. I was able to do that and when I got my hands on the ball, I was just like, Thank God, thank God. Despite having a great game when his number was called, Williams said nerves played a part in his first few plays. I was a bit nervous, he said. People will focus on the two interceptions, but I missed a couple of tackles early. The only thing that they will remember is the two interceptions and Im just glad that I was able to get my head together and turn the momentum of the game. When Williams caught the first interception, it was a moment of elation. I saw the ball coming and I just ran under and started screaming thank you Jesus, he said. I didnt know that it would come to me again. And when it did, it was certain that Tiger fans wouldnt forget his name anytime soon. It was a relief for me, he said. After they got close with the punt, I didnt know that it would come. I was just doing my part. Columbia head coach Brian Allen took note of Williams play as well. Hes been hit or miss in practice and theres no in between, he said. Tonight, he was hitting on all cyl-inders. Hes established himself so that I have confi-dence to put him in.JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Bryan Williams made sure that Tiger fa ns will remember his face after a two-interception performance against Buchholz High on Fri day. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbias Lonnie Underwood (24) runs past Buchholz High defenders on a 21-yard touchdown carry Friday at Citizens Field in Gainesville. CHS beat Buchholz High, 55-14. Running game leads Tigers to 55-14 victoryBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE Columbia High head coach Brian Allen had one goal set in his mind that would push the Tigers to victory against Buchholz High on Friday Allen wanted to run the ball with author-ity against the Bobcats. Mission accomplished after a 55-14 win at Citizens Field in Gainesville. Columbia hammered the Bobcats to the tune of 329 yards rushing the best effort of the year. Leading the charge was Lonnie Underwood with 13 car-ries for 136 yards and two scores. Braxton Stockton scored twice on eight car-ries and amassed 89 yards. Ronald Timmons went for triple digits at 101 yards on 12 carries. It was a three-headed monster for Columbia all night, which usually isnt a running backs best friend. Stockton admitted that all the running backs want the ball in their hand on a down-by-down basis, but knows the system Columbia has working for it will carry the Tigers this season. We all want the ball, but we cant be selfish, Stockton said. We have to realize that when were tired, were more likely to make a mistake. The backs are a compliment to each other with different styles in each of their game. I like to carry the inside runs, while they can get outside, Stockton said. We have to keep each other up. It was a stark contrast to last week when Columbia was outrushed 183-84 against Gainesville. That was one of our goals going in, Allen said. Last week, I felt like we dropped the ball. We want to dominate in the rush-ing game. My goal is to be over 200 yards at the end of the season. We have three exceptional backs. Timmons is one of the best, Underwood is excep-tional and Stockton is our workhorse. On Friday, the Tigers proved that you cant have too much of a good thing. Two Columbia starters go down with injuriesBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE It wasnt all good news for Columbia High in a 55-14 win against Buchholz High at Citizens Field in Gainesville on Friday. The Tigers lost two starters for the game and maybe longer with injuries. Safety Trey Marshall and fullback Darren Burch both left the game. Marshall sprained his ankle before the half and didnt return with the Tigers leading 35-0 at the halfway mark. Burch had his helmet knocked off on a big hit and the word on Saturday was that he had a collapsed lung and possible concussion. The good news is that Burch returned home from the hospital on Saturday. Coach Brian Allen spoke about the injuries following the game on Friday. Treys injury is not super severe, Allen said. Hell ice it up this week and be ready to go against Oakleaf. Burch we hope its not that bad.Gainesville scared early, stays undefeated in late rout, 42-21By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIt looked bad early for the team that handed Columbia High its only loss of the sea-son, but Gainesville High rebounded in the second half for a 42-21 victory over Ocala Trinity Catholic. Trailing 14-0 at the half, the Hurricanes were hurt-ing their own cause. In total, Gainesville was penal-ized 19 times for 190. The Hurricanes also lost a fumble and threw three interceptions something the Tigers would have liked last week. What did work for the Hurricanes was the run game as Gainesville rushed for 285 yards to pick up the win. Tony James was the gamebreaker with 102 yards on 12 carries and Raphael Webb finished with 90 yards. Mark Cato finished with 199 yards passing and a touchdown to go along with the three interceptions.Suwannee 35, Santa Fe 0Columbias long-time rival, Suwannee High, picked up its second win of the season with a 35-0 win against kickoff-classic opponent Santa Fe High. It was the run game for the Bulldogs that powered Suwannee to the win as Kyle Stebbins scored twice on the ground, while Randy Waddy and Jai Kinsey eached scored once.

Alabama crushes ArkansasAssociated PressFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Without Tyler Wilson, Arkansas never had a chance against Alabama. The top-ranked Crimson Tide demolished the beleaguered Razorbacks 52-0 on Saturday in Fayetteville, Ark. Arkansas much-anticipated season has crumbled in three weeks. The Razorbacks lost 34-31 in overtime last week to Louisiana-Monroe, and Wilson suffered a head injury in that game. Wilson was in uniform, but did not play against the Tide and his backups, Brandon Allen and Brandon Mitchell, were torment-ed by the Alabama defense. Arkansas managed only 137 yards. Eddie Lacy ran for three touchdowns and the Crimson Tide forced five turnovers to win its 21st straight SEC opener. Vinnie Sunseri and Haha Clinton-Dix had interceptions against the Razorbacks, who played without quarterback Tyler Wilson because he had a head injury in last weeks loss to Louisiana-Monroe. The shutout was the second straight for the Crimson Tide (3-0, 1-0 SEC). The last time Alabama, which has forced 12 turnovers this season, had back-to-back shutouts was against Vanderbilt and Kentucky in 1980. AJ McCarron was 11 of 16 passing for 189 yards and a touch-down. Arkansas (1-2, 0-1) had just 44 yards of total offense at halftime and 137 for the game.No. 4 Oregon 63, Tennessee Tech 14EUGENE, Ore. Marcus Mariota threw for 308 yards and four touchdowns before Oregon pulled its starters. Multitalented DeAnthony Thomas had 222 all-purpose yards on 10 touches. He ran for a 59-yard touchdown and caught a 16-yard scoring pass from Mariota. The Ducks (3-0) were playing their final nonconference game before hosting Arizona next Saturday. They had 652 yards in total offense, compared to 177 yards for Tennessee Tech. Oregon did have its issues, however, with 12 penalties for 105 yards. The Golden Eagles (2-1) have never defeated an FBS-level team in 28 tries.No. 9 West Virginia 42, James Madison 12LANDOVER, Md. Geno Smith completed 34 of 39 passes for 411 yards and five touchdowns for West Virginia. Smith set the schools career passing yardage record, topping Marc Bulger. Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin both had 100 yards receiving before halftime for the Mountaineers, who improved to 2-0 and are 13-0 against FCS schools. Bailey finished with 173 yards on 13 catches and three touch-downs. Austin had 113 yards on 11 receptions and one score. The Dukes upset then-No. 13 Virginia Tech two years ago, but they never challenged the Mountaineers. They fell to 2-1. The Mountaineers hosted the game at the Washington Redskins stadium to help maintain an East Coast profile now that theyve moved to the Big 12.No. 11 Clemson 41, Furman 7CLEMSON, S.C. Tajh Boyd threw for 310 yards and three touchdown passes, Sammy Watkins had a 58-yard touch-down run in his season debut and Clemson won its 30th straight over Furman. Watkins scored in the first quarter after taking an inside handoff from Boyd and rushing past the right side of Furmans defense. The All-American sophomore receiver spent the past two games on the sideline, suspended for a May drug arrest. He finished with four catches for 52 yards. Boyds three scoring throws gave him 43 for his career, sec-ond at Clemson (3-0) and just six behind the record held by Charlie Whitehurst. Furman opened 0-3 for the first time since 1979.No. 12 Ohio State 35, California 28COLUMBUS, Ohio Braxton Miller lofted a 72-yard touch-down pass to an all-alone Devin Smith with 3:26 left and Christian Bryant snuffed out Californias last chance with an interception for the Buckeyes. The Golden Bears (1-2) missed three field goals and had a touch-down called back by a penalty, while the Buckeyes (3-0) gave up 512 yards and were outplayed for much of the second half. Taking over at his own 25 with the score knotted, it took just three plays until on third-and-7 a defensive back thought Miller would run and he instead threw deep to a wide-open Smith. Bryant then picked off Zach Maynards pass and returned it 38 yards to end the Bears last threat. Maynard completed 26 of 37 passes for 280 yards and a touchdown. Brendan Bigelow has touchdown runs of 81 and 59 yards for Cal.Pittsburgh 35, No. 13 Virginia Tech 17PITTSBURGH Ray Graham ran for 94 yards and two scores and added an 18-yard touchdown reception to lead Pitt to its first victory of the season. Tino Sunseri passed for 283 yards and two touchdowns and freshman running back Rushel Shell added 157 yards as Pitt (1-2) gave coach Paul Chryst his first career victory in emphatic fashion. Virginia Tech (2-1) had won 13 straight true road games, the lon-gest active streak in the country.No. 16 TCU 20, Kansas 6LAWRENCE, Kan. Casey Pachall threw for 335 yards and two touchdowns, both to Brandon Carter, and TCU won its Big 12 debut. Carter finished with eight catches for 141 yards, and Waymon James added 99 yards rushing for the Horned Frogs (2-0, 1-0), who pushed the nations longest winning streak to 10 games by beating up on the team picked to finish last in the conference in preseason polls. Dayne Crist led the Jayhawks (1-2, 0-1) with 303 yards pass-ing, but he was also intercepted once, fumbled as he was heading into the end zone in the fourth quarter, and missed several third-down throws that prevented Kansas from capitalizing on TCU turnovers.No. 17 Michigan 63, UMass13ANN ARBOR, Mich. Denard Robinson put up 397 yards of total offense and accounted for four touchdowns for Michigan. Robinson, who came out of the game with Michigan (2-1) lead-ing 56-13 late in the third quar-ter, rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown and completed 16 of 24 passes for 291 yards and three scores. No. 19 Louisville 39, North Carolina 34LOUISVILLE, Ky. Teddy Bridgewater threw three first-half touchdowns and No. 19 Louisville scored on its first six posses-sions, and then had thwart North Carolinas comeback with a late defensive stand. Bryn Renner settled down from a rough first half to rally the Tar Heels (1-2) from a 36-7 deficit with four second-half touchdown passes. ASSOCIATED PRESSBethune-Cookman linebacker Tavarus Dantzler (right) atte mpts to tackle Miami running back Duke Johnson (8) in the first half of an NCAA football ga me Saturday in Miami.Miami beats WildcatsBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI For the second straight year, Bethune-Cookman scored first against Miami. The celebration lasted 12 seconds. The rest of the Wildcats day was lost in a blur of Duke Johnson high-lights. Miamis standout freshman scored four touch-downs getting them three different ways and finished with 246 all-purpose yards to lead the Hurricanes past Bethune-Cookman 38-10, the Wildcats first loss in nine games dating back to last October. He exploded because we missed tackles, said Bethune-Cookman coach Brian Jenkins, whose team lost at Miami 45-14 a year ago. Any running back that had been back there could do what we did if we miss tackles, and thats what we did. Isidore Jacksons 1-yard touchdown run gave the Wildcats (2-1) an early 7-0 lead, capping a 20-yard drive set up after Miamis Phillip Dorsett fumbled away a punt return. With that, the Johnson show began. He took the ensuing kickoff back 95 yards for a score, dived in for a 1-yard touchdown with 5:48 left in the half to put Miami on top to stay, then reached the end zone twice more after halftime on a 50-yard reception in the third quarter and a 28-yard rush in the fourth. It wasnt what Miami did, Jenkins said. It wasnt what they did. It was what we didnt do. No disrespect to them. Johnson now has six touchdowns in his first three college games, four going for at least 50 yards. Hes the first Hurricane with a four-touchdown out-ing since Tyrone Moss in 2005, and according to STATS LLC, Johnson became just the 10th player at the major-college level in the last seven seasons to have rushing, receiving and return touchdowns in the same game. The Hurricanes have raved about Johnsons humble ways since his two-touchdown opener at Boston College both of those scores exceeding 50 yards. Of Miamis 11 touchdowns this season, six have been scored by Johnson.
F lorida States defense was allowing an average of 92 yards per game, but that was against two tin cans. The Seminoles were equally dominant in shutting out Wake Forest on 126 yards. Lake Citys Timmy Jernigan is in the middle of the defensive line and I trained the binoculars on him during the game. Jernigan approachs the game with sheer joy. During warm-ups he was bouncing up and down, wandering around with his helmet off and talking, talking, talking. When Jernigan came out just before kickoff, he gave the Wake Forest a little wiggle and had to be held back by the Renegade rope brigade. At the end of the first quarter, he did a little jig with Demonte McAllister. I try to play every game the way I played in high school, said the Columbia High graduate. I have fun and keep my teammates involved. Jernigan played a great game. He tied for the team lead in tackles with six three unassisted and three assisted. Jernigan didnt start. When the first four were out of the blowout, he went out during a time out and met with the younger defensive linemen. Theres no such thing as second string to us, Jernigan said. We call it 1A, 1B and 1C. Coach (Dennis) Dotson always said you were only as strong as your weakest link.

Through the first 27 games of Dooleys tenure, the Vols had been 13-0 when leading at halftime and 0-14 when tied or behind at the midway point. Tennessees Tyler Bray went 22-of-44 for 257 yards and threw touchdown pass-es to Cordarrelle Patterson and Mychal Rivera, but he also tossed his first two interceptions of the season.

For about 2 12 quarters, it seemed theyd get their wish. The Vols led 20-13 and had a chance to take a dou-ble-digit advantage midway through the third quar-ter after an unsuccessful Florida fake punt attempt gave the Vols possession at the Gators 47-yard line. Tennessee failed to capital-ize on the exceptional field position and ended up punt-ing into the end zone. Florida dominated from that point on. Burton, a fullback who often takes snaps out of the Wildcat formation, raced 80 yards on the first play of Floridas ensuing pos-session. Burton headed toward the right sideline, shook loose of Tennessee cornerback Marsalis Teague after crossing mid-field and sailed into the end zone from there. That play was only Burtons second carry of the night, as hed run around left end for a 14-yard touchdown on his first attempt. Florida got the ball back when Matt Elam picked off a Tyler Bray pass intend-ed for Justin Hunter at the Florida 30. Driskel then put the Gators in front for good with his pass to Reed. The tiebreaking touchdown was set up by a 45-yard run from Gillislee, who had gained just 27 yards on 11 carries up to that point. The Volunteers never recovered.

Your marketplace source for Lake City and Columbia County&&ROXPELD,QFAuthor, radio host offers local class T he ability to concentrate and to use your time well is every-thing if you want to succeed in busi-ness--or almost anywhere else for that matter. ~Lee Iacocca People often say they can tell how successful they are going to be in their day based on how it begins. The better it starts, the better it will end. Of course, the real question is how do you make your day start well? Mark Twain was an amazing author and a very wise philosopher. He once said, If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morn-ing. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first. Obviously, eating a frog is a colorful analogy for those tasks that you dislike but must do. In my personal experience, when I was faced with a task I really did not want to do such as reprimanding an employee I tended to push off. I always just felt that if I avoided the pain, then it might go away. Of course, as anyone who has ever put off an unpleasant task can attest, it never goes away. It merely ends up weighing you down and ruining your entire day. Once I learned to abide by the eat your frog first philosophy, however, my life has seemed so much easier and more refreshing. I have been running for decades, but I can truthful-ly say that the part I enjoy most about my daily 3-mile run is when it is over. I learned early on that doing it first thing in the morning (eating my frog) was the only way to ensure I got it done each and every day. When I put it off until later in the day, it just becomes too easy to come up with reasons not to do it or to justify skipping it because I have run out of time. On days when that happens, I just do not feel right. Having the courage to face the things that you just do not want to do early on is so vital for every leader as well as for every indi-vidual. I have a very good friend, an author, who has the hardest time getting going in the morning. Though he likes to write, he just seems to put it off to avoid the pain of writers block. However, once he gets started and he really gets into his craft, things seem to flow without inter-ruption. The problem for him really is just getting going. To help him out, I suggested he try implement-ing the eat your frog first philosophy. He now tackles his writing first thing in the morning before doing anything else, and he says he feels so much better as he no longer dreads sitting By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comFledgling entrepreneurs and seasoned profession-als alike can learn to grow their leadership abilities directly from bestselling author and radio host Dave Ramsey with a live, local simulcast Friday, Sept. 21.

By BRIAN MURPHY and NASSER KARIMIAssociated PressTEHRAN, Iran The Great Satan still sells in Iran. Even after decades of diplomatic estrangement and tightening economic sanc-tions, American products manage to find their way into the Iranian market-place. The routes are var-ied: back channel export-ers, licensing workarounds and straightforward trade for goods not covered by the U.S. embargoes over Irans nuclear program. It offers lessons in the immense difficulties facing Western attempts to isolate Irans economy, which has deepening trade links with Asia where distributors serve as middlemen to fun-nel U.S. and other goods to Iranian merchants. But sanctions are also battering Irans currency and driving up costs for all imports, which could increase domestic pressures on Irans ruling system. Although the number of Made-in-America items in Iran is dwarfed by the exports from Europe, China and neighboring Turkey, some of the best-known U.S. brands can be tracked down in Tehran and other large cities. Its possible to check your emails on an iPhone, sip a Coke and hit the gym in a pair of Nikes. Im always looking for what new Apple products are in the windows, said Kamyar Niaki, a 19-year-old freshman at Tehrans Azad University, as he played Angry Birds on his iPhone 4S about $800 in Iran at a northern Tehran shopping mall popular with young people for its selec-tion of computers, mobile phones, software and apps. The iPhones and other Apple products typically enter Iran through net-works in Dubai or from Asian distributors, which also ship everything from lower-cost MacBook fakes to bogus Levis and Tommy Hilfiger. Similar trade routes from the Far East or nearby Dubai also bring in Westinghouse appliances, Microsoft pro-grams. And they were prob-ably also responsible for the Epiphone model guitar by Nashville-based Gibson that Ali Mahmoudi bought for his oldest son last week for about $1,200 more than double the price in the United States. My son learned from his classmates in high school that American gui-tars are still the best, said Mahmoudi, an engineer.

By MICHAEL LIEDTKEAP Technology WriterSAN FRANCISCO As I played around with the iPhone 5, I wondered what the late Steve Jobs would have thought about the lat-est twist on Apples best-selling device. It didnt take long to conclude that Jobs would have been delighted with the iPhone 5s blend of beauty, utility and versatility. Add in the more advanced technology and new fea-tures that went into this iPhone, and its clear Apple has come up with another product that will compel hordes of people to line up outside its stores before its release next Friday. After going on sale in the U.S., Japan, Britain, Germany, France and four other countries, the mad dash will be repeated again on Sept. 28 in 22 other coun-tries. All iPhone 5 models will sell for the same prices as their predecessors, start-ing at $199 with a two-year data and calling plan. An important caveat about these impressions: I was allotted only about 15 minutes with the iPhone 5 at Wednesdays launch event, not enough time to discover if it might have some technological bugs. I am sure that in the com-ing days, other reviewers will have the opportunity to give the phone a more thorough vetting. For many people, the iPhone is going to be a case of love at first touch. It is incredibly light and seems easier to hold. That means it might not be dropped as frequently as previous iPhones, reducing the chances of the glass on the display screen getting damaged. One woman who also was testing out an iPhone 5 couldnt stop raving about how ideal the new design was for people with smaller hands. The new iPhone also is easy on the eyes, thanks to a larger screen and its Retina Display, the high-definition technology that Apple introduced in pre-vious models. Video and photos look even lusher on the iPhone 5s bigger and better screen. At 4 inches diagonally, the iPhone 5s screen is a half-inch larger than previ-ous generations. Thats still smaller than the one on Samsungs flagship Galaxy S III, but the iPhone 5 is lighter. Apple made sure to take advantage of the larger display. The extra space means you can now see five rows of apps on the home screen instead of the previ-ous four. Open the calendar and you can see five days of events on the screen in horizontal mode, instead of just three.

Clean Up With Clorox If youre looking for a blue-chip dividend-paying stock, consider Clorox (NYSE: CLX), recently yielding 3.5 percent. With brands such as Pine-Sol, S.O.S., Tilex, Green Works, Fresh Step, Scoop Away, Glad, Brita, Hidden Valley, Burts Bees, Kingsford and LiquidPlumr, its readying to celebrate its 100th year, and its prospects for growth are looking as fresh as ever. The company, which has four operating segments cleaning, household, lifestyle and international fits the bill as a Peter Lynch buy what you know candidate because it has easily recognizable products and an easyto-understand business model. It can provide downside protection for your portfolio because of the inelastic prices on many of its products. These products are necessary, too. No matter what the economy is doing, youll probably still apply lip balm, clean your kitchen, change your cats litter, unclog drains and occasionally grill some food. Its mixture of well-known brands, an easily understood business model and strong pricing power continues to drive Cloroxs innovation and growth. The companys sales volume has been growing, too, as has its dividend, which has been raised for 35 straight years. Clorox is likely to be a successful company for another 100 years. Its stock is not quite a bargain now, so perhaps keep an eye on it, waiting for a temporary pullback. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Clorox.) The M ot l ey Foo l To Educate, Amuse & Enrich Competition Matters One of my earliest losers was LeapFrog Enterprises, with its electronic learning tablet. I figured that parents love their kids and will shower them with the best educational toys. Lesson learned: As with kiddie clothes, most parents are not that fussy about brands of toys. And with technology-based toys such as the LeapPad, there wasnt much sustainable competitive advantage. Fisher-Price soon came out with a rival product and LeapFrog had to discount heavily. The results were predictable: Profit margins fell and earnings shrank. Lesson No. 2: Rave reviews are not enough. F.E., Singapore The Fool Responds: LeapFrog was first to market with its electronic learning device, but that rarely guarantees success. Deep-pocketed competitors could and did come up with similar products. Bigger companies also tend to enjoy advantages such as economies of scale and large, established distribution channels. Its great to find a company with a new and compelling product, but you need to be confident in its ability to compete well. LeapFrog has survived and is growing, but its stock, recently around $11 per share, is well below its 2003 high near $40. Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

Shrink That Loss Q On my next tax return, can I deduct from my income a big loss I incurred this year from a stock sale? S.W., Dothan, Ala. A If you have any capital gains from stock sales, youll first offset them with your loss. Any loss beyond that, or all of your loss if you have no capital gains, can be deducted from your income up to $3,000 per year. Sums above $3,000 can be carried over to the following year. If youre in the 25 percent tax bracket and you deduct $3,000 from your income, youre excluding that amount from taxation. So you save 25 percent of $3,000, or $750. Of course, youve still lost money. You just decreased your loss. Learn much more about tax rules and strategies that can save you money. Do so at irs.gov or fool.com/taxes *** Q How much personal liability insurance do I need? F.E., Keene, N.H. A It depends. Figure out how much you have to lose if youre sued. Add up the value of your home, your belongings and your financial assets. Tack on some more for the cost of legal defense. (Insurance companies will sometimes provide a lawyer.) You want to be sure that a lawsuit wont wipe you out or cause severe financial strain. If your total assets are substantial, ask your insurance company about an umbrella personal liability policy. Critical for more and more of us these days, umbrella policies generally offer much more liability coverage ($1 million or more) at much lower premiums than individual policies, such as homeowners, renters and automobile insurance. If you have a lot to lose, you might want an umbrella policy. Learn much more at fool.com/ insurancecenter and iii.org Got a question for the Fool?

Successful and 2012 T HE M OTLEY F OOL /D IST BY U NIVERSAL U CLICK ( FOR RELEASE 9/13/2012) By CANDICE CHOI AP Food Industry Writer NEW YORK That cheeseburger on the value menu may end up costing more than you think. Whether its the Dollar Menu at McDonalds or the Why Pay More Menu at Taco Bell, fastfood chains often spotlight their cheapest offerings to attract customers. The items usually cost a buck or so and are no doubt a deal if youre looking for a quick treat. But theres a reason why companies dangle the offers; custom ers often end up spending more on other items once theyre in the restaurants. Think $3 coffee frappes and fruit smoothies. Every restaurant has an opportunity to get custom ers to trade up to more expensive, higher-priced options including main entrees, sides, beverages and desserts, said Darren Tristano, an analyst at research firm Technomic. Additionally, value menus arent as filling as they were a few years ago because restaurants swap out items that become too expensive to offer at such low prices. Earlier this year, for instance, small fries and small soft drinks dis appeared off McDonalds Dollar Menu. That doesnt mean that you should stay away from value menus. After all, you get deals on certain items because restaurants make money on others. But as a consumer, its worth knowing how fastfood chains rely on value offerings and the role they play in how much you ultimately spend. FILLING UP THE TRAY For restaurants, the prof it margins for value menu items are often razor-thin. But they make money off them by selling the items in huge volumes. Taco Bell, for example, is known for its affordable prices even in the fast-food industry; its Why Pay More menu offers 89-cent nachos and 99-cent tacos. But chances are that youll get more than one taco. Not including a drink, customers order an aver age of three items, says Brian Niccol, the chains chief marketing officer. The idea is that people will fill up their trays, hope fully with more profitable foods. The same philosophy applies to other fast-food chains, including Subway. The ubiquitous sandwich shop doesnt have a value menu per se, but its $5 foot-long deal has become a staple of its marketing. Without giving details, Subway Chief Marketing Officer Tony Pace said the offer has been a game changer in terms of bring ing in customers since it was introduced in 2008. WOULD YOU LIKE A DRINK WITH THAT? Whether you choose to order a drink with your meal makes a big differ ence to fast-food chains. Thats because fountain drinks have high profit margins. The more often you can sell a drink, the better you feel about providing discounts on other items, said Niccol of Taco Bell. As sales of sodas and diet sodas have slipped, restau rants have responded by aggressively marketing other drinks, such as spe cialty coffees and smooth ies. Its been a big part of McDonalds success in recent years; the chain introduced premium coffee drinks in 2009 and fruit smoothies the following year. Its no surprise that Burger King followed suit with its own coffee frappes and smoothies as part of its revamp earlier this year. Wendys is also testing spe cialty coffees in select mar kets. At Taco Bell, customers can get a Fruitista Freeze, a frozen drink topped with fruit pieces, or Limeade Sparklers, which is lemonlime soda and lime juice. Theres definitely a con sumer trend of splurging on drinks, says Niccol of Taco Bell. In fact, beverage only trips to fast-food restaurants are increasing, according to The NPD Group. These trips are often for shakes, smoothies, slushy drinks and coffee. SKIMPIER MENUS Value menus arent as meaty as they once were, either. When McDonalds first introduced its Dollar Menu a decade ago, for example, the flagship offering was the Big N Tasty, made with a quarter-pound beef patty. But as McDonalds and other fast-food chains pay more for beef, cheese and other ingredients, what customers can buy for just a buck isnt quite as filling. The Big N Tasty lasted on the Dollar Menu for about a year. McDonalds then added the Double Cheeseburger, which has smaller patties, to the line up instead. As ingredient prices have risen, McDonalds in March introduced its Extra Value Menu, where items cost closer to $2. Thats where the two-cheese-slice Double Cheeseburger is now found. What it boiled down to was our ability to offer our customers options that make sense for them, but also make sense for us, says Danya Proud, a spokes woman for McDonalds. The changes may be why the Dollar Menu now makes up about 10 percent of McDonalds business, down from about 13 per cent in earlier years. Smart Spending: The secrets of the value menu down to write.

By JULIA GRONNEVETAssociated PressOSLO, Norway A Norwegian court has upheld a ban on the display of tobacco products in stores, handing a defeat Friday to the Philip Morris company. Norway, which has had a ban on cigarette and alcohol advertising since 1975, in 2010 banned even the display of tobac-co products at their point of sale. Shops must keep cigarettes in unmarked cabinets or special vend-ing machines with no vis-ible logos. Customers wishing to buy tobacco must active-ly ask merchants for it. Philip Morris sued the Norwegian state, argu-ing that the display ban interfered with the free flow of goods and broke with international agree-ments Norway is party to. But the Oslo district court said it concluded that the display ban is necessary and that there arent other, less invasive methods which could give similar results. Philip Morris has one month to decide whether to challenge the ruling in a higher court. We are disappointed with the courts decision and are considering our options for appeal, said Nordan Helland, spokes-man for Philip Morris Norway. Tobacco companies worldwide have long used legal avenues to challenge government laws on cigarette taxes, smoking bans, marketing restrictions and health warnings. Most notably, Australias highest court last month rejected a challenge by tobacco companies who argued the value of their trade-marks will be destroyed if they are no longer able to display their distinc-tive colors, brand designs and logos on packs of cigarettes. Philip Morris International in recent years also has filed lawsuits challenging marketing restrictions and health warnings in Uruguay and a ban on tobacco products in shops in Ireland. Those challenges are ongoing. Anti-smoking campaigners welcomed the ruling in Oslo. This verdict sends a signal that its possible to win over the mighty tobacco industry, said Karl Erik Lund, research director at the Norwegian Institute for Alcohol and Drug Research, who tes-tified as an expert wit-ness for the state. LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 16, 2012 3C&%L]relentless traffic. The U.S. became vilified as the Great Satan after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, and chants of Death to America remain a staple at Friday prayers at Tehran University. But even Irans leadership could not stamp out the taste for Coke and Pepsi. Both iconic American drinks have been main-stays for years in one of the Middle Easts largest consumer markets with 75 million people. The U.S. Treasury sanctions on Iran give some leeway for food and beverages, allow-ing The Coca-Cola Co. and PepsiCo to work through non-U.S. subsidiaries to ship their syrup to Iranian bottlers and distributors. Its brought some backlash from hard-liners who cringe at the popular-ity of Coke and Pepsi at the expense of local rival Zamzam Cola, named after a venerated well in the Islamic holy city of Mecca. Zamzam is owned by a gov-ernment-backed founda-tion. Yet in the cola wars, Iran is struggling. Reza Kazemi, a worker at a government-owned Tehran hospital, carried a family-size Coke 1.5 liters at the equivalent of 50 cents among his grocer-ies from a shop in down-town Tehran. My wife and three children like it, he said. Its delicious. The same shop stocks Gillette razors and Pampers diapers, both made by Procter & Gamble Co., whose health care products are not blocked by sanc-tions. Since a long time ago, Iranians have learned that American products are among the best, said Masoud Mohajer, an eco-nomic columnist who writes for Iranian newspapers and journals. If the govern-ment bans them, they will infiltrate the Iranian market through smugglers since there is a market for them because of their reputa-tions. Last year, American companies exported $229 mil-lion worth of products to Iran not blocked by sanc-tions, according to U.S. government and indepen-dent figures cited by the U.S. Institute of Peace. The list is as eclectic as it gets: Frozen bull semen, artifi-cial teeth, chewing gum, cranberries, toothpicks and antibiotics. The top U.S. export last year: more than $11.2 million worth of but-ter. The figure has seesawed over the years, from a high of $747 million in U.S. exports to Iran in 1992 to just $28,000 in 1998, the institute said. Iran also buys U.S. commodities such as wheat, corn and soybeans. Until U.S. sanctions were tightened in recent years, some major American com-panies such as heavy equip-ment maker Caterpillar, General Electric Co. and Hewlett-Packard Co. had a presence in the Iranian market through non-U.S. affiliates or distributors. But all later said they were canceling any ties with Iran following similar moves by European heavyweights including Germanys appli-ance maker Siemens AG, steel and machinery com-pany ThyssenKrupp AG and Italian energy company ENI. Much of the sanctionscovered American products arrive via networks in Asia in which buyers legally purchase U.S. goods and then reship them to Iran. Previously, the primary route was through Dubai, but authorities in the United Arab Emirates have signifi-cantly stepped up inspec-tions of Iran-bound cargo for possible U.S. sanctions violations. Dubai is like a hypermarket for Iran, Ahmed Butti Ahmed, executive chairman and director gen-eral at Dubai Customs, said in April. A Tehran-based technology industry analyst, Jafar Tehrani, said the UAE is still a main jump-off point for iPhones and other Apple products coming to Iran. Technology does not recognize borders. Apple is very popular in Iran, and customers have no problem except after-sale services, said Tehrani. This is where hackers such as 23-year-old Amir comes in. He charges between $5 and $10 to jail-break an iPhone to work on Irans domestic mobile network. I have 10 to 15 customers every day, said Amir, who gave only his first name because repro-gramming the phones is illegal. Thats about the same number of daily sales of Apple laptops and iPhones at Mansour Ahadis elec-tronics store in the Tehran digital mall. We import them from neighboring countries sim-ply because there is a high demand, he said. But there are clear pressures. A nosedive in the value of the Iranian rial which hit an all-time low against the dollar this week has sharply raised the cost of imports. This has almost doubled prices of many imported items from cosmetics to cell phones to spare parts of cars. For Irans extensive middle class many with uni-versity degrees and near Western-standard lifestyles the blows to their buy-ing power could bring more heat on authorities as they try to ride out sanctions. Amir, the iPhone jailbreaker, summed up his slice of Americana in the middle of Tehran: I earn from Apple, I drink Coke and I dream of buying a Ford Mustang.

Once its activated, an arrow guides you as you slowly pan the camera around whatever scenery you desire. If you move too fast, Panorama tells you to slow down. It also advises you if you are moving the camera too high or low. Once you are done, you can look at the panoramic shot within seconds and zoom into whichever areas of the picture look most interest-ing. Not surprisingly, watching video on the larger screen is also more pleasur-able, although I still think the iPad and other tablet computers are a much bet-ter way to enjoy movies and TV shows on the go. The device is also speedier because it has a more powerful processing chip and upgraded wireless technology that accelerates Web surfing. Apple also has equipped the iPhone 5 with a supe-rior sound system, courte-sy of the new headphones that the company says it spent three years devel-oping. The headphones, called EarPods, are a vast improvement on the ear-buds that Apple has been giving away with its devices for more than a decade. The new headphones actually stay in your ears and make it seem as if the sound is playing inside your head. The EarPods come free with the iPhone 5, and they sounded as good as $100 headphones sold by a vari-ety of other companies. The new phones operating system, iOS 6, also introduces another fun toy that makes it easy to share photos with your friends and family. Just select a pic-ture, or even a series of photos, then email them to whomever you want, without the need for messy attachments. Assuming the recipients also have Apple devices running on iOS 6, they will receive a notification ask-ing if they would like to have the designated photos sent to their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. The recipients dont necessarily have to own an iPhone 5 for this photo-sharing feature because the new iOS can be down-loaded for free beginning next Wednesday on a wide range of older Apple devic-es, including the three pre-vious versions of the iPhone and the past two versions of the iPad. Those eligible will get a notification and will have to initiate the upgrade if they want it. The new operating system also stands out for whats missing. The pre-installed YouTube app that had been part of the iPhone since it came out in 2007 is gone. Youd need to download a new application made by YouTube owner Google Inc. in Apples iTunes store. Even more noticeable is the absence of Google Maps. Apple has cast aside one of Googles most pop-ular services for its own mapping system. From what I saw, it looks like its going to keep users happy. It offers aerial views, three-dimensional renderings of many major cities and, best of all, turn-by-turn directions narrated by the iPhones virtual assistant, Siri. That was a feature Google had limited to com-peting devices running its Android system. Assuming the directions are accurate, I doubt Google Maps is going to be missed. The new iOS also offers a feature called Passbook, where digital coupons, air-line tickets and gift cards can be conveniently stored in one location. This, too, is going to be popular. Yet, Passbook would be even handier if the iPhone 5 had a near-field communi-cation chip to enable wire-less payments at checkout stands equipped for the still-nascent technology. Some Android phones are able to process payments because they have the NFC chip. Siri is also supposed to be smarter and even more helpful in the iPhone 5, although I didnt get a chance to challenge her in Apples noisy testing room. Too bad, as I would have liked to ask Siri what Steve Jobs might have thought of the iPhone 5. But, I am pretty sure I know the answer. ASSOCIATED PRESSThe new Apple iPhone 5 is displayed Wednesday Sept. 12 2012 following the introduction of new products in San Francisco. The iPhone 5 is a blend of beauty, utility and versatility. APPLE: iPhone 5 gets good review Continued From Page 1C IRAN: Market hungry for American Continued From Page 1CBy BRETT ZONGKERAssociated PressWASHINGTON A woman who paid $7 for a box of trinkets at a West Virginia flea market two years ago apparently acquired an original painting by French impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir with-out knowing it. The woman considered discarding the painting to salvage its frame, but instead made an appointment to have it evaluated in July by the Potomack Co. auction house in Alexandria, Va., said its fine arts direc-tor Anne Norton Craner. When the woman pulled the painting out of a garbage bag she carried it in, Craner was nearly certain the painting was a Renoir with its distinct colors, light and brushwork. A plaque on the front labeled it Renoir. My gut said that it was right, but you have to then check, Craner said. French handwriting on the back of the canvass included a label and number. Craner turned to the catalog by French gallery Bernheim-Jeune thats published all of Renoirs work. Low and behold, it was in volume one, she said. An image of the painting was published in black and white, and the gallerys stock number matched the flea market find. So Craner made a digital image of the flea market painting, converted it to black and white for a closer look, and the brush strokes also matched, she said. Its not a painting you would fake, Craner said. If youre going to fake something, youd fake something easier. Painting No. 24349 turns out to be Renoirs painting Paysage Bords de Seine, which translates to Banks of the River Seine, Craner determined. It dates to about 1879 and measures 6 inches by 10 inches. The painting is set for auction Sept. 29. It could fetch $75,000 or more, Craner said. Elizabeth Wainstein, owner of the Potomack Co., said theres no doubt about the paintings authenticity. The Shenandoah Valley woman found the painting and kept it in storage for nearly two years has declined to publicly disclose her name. After weeks of research, Craner believes Renoir gave the painting to a woman who modeled for him. The painting was then sold to the Bernheim-Jeune art gallery for 5,000 francs in 1925, according to gal-lery records. The following year, the gal-lery sold the painting to American lawyer Herbert L. May who kept homes in New York and Geneva and also worked for the government in Washington. As far as Craner can tell, May kept the painting in his personal collection until his death in 1966. Its a mystery, though, as to how the painting ended up in West Virginia. Still, its provenance is fairly short as the painting has not traded hands many times. It just did what paintings do sometimes they kind of disappear out of circula-tion, Craner said. Thats what is so fan-tastic. This paintings been unseen since 1926.ASSOCIATED PRESSThis image released by Potomack Company shows an appa rently original painting by French impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir that was acquired b y a woman from Virginia who stopped at a flea market in West Virginia and paid $7 for a box of trinkets that included the painting.

The mission of the program is to educate Floridians about science-based, environ-mentally friendly landscap-ing practices. By using these FFL principles on your own property, you are doing something positive about protecting our valu-able water resources. The information to which people have access through UF/IFAS Extension is based on science and research, and that means it is the most reliable working knowledge that we pres-ently have. The best man-agement practices taught by UF Extension Faculty in every county help us all protect Floridas surface and ground water. There are 9 Principles of Florida-Friendly Landscaping that help us manage our lawns and gardens so that they are beautiful, healthy, and have little negative impact on the greater environment. Read more about these princi-ples and how they can help you become a more efficient gardener by going to http://fyn.ifas.ufl.edu These 9 FFL Principles are: Right Plant, Right Place, Water Efficiently, Fertilize Appropriately, Mulch, Attract Wildlife, Manage Yard Pests Responsibly, Recycle, Reduce Storm Water Runoff and Protect the Waterfront. I would like to expand a little on the first principle, Right Plant, Right Place. Have you ever purchased that beautiful plant at the garden center and then, after planting it, it starts looking sick? It just keeps getting worse every day so you give it more water, more fertilizer, more water, more fertilizer Unless you figure out that the site conditions are wrong for your beautiful little plant, it dies and you blame it on a black thumb. My favorite part of gardening is choosing the plants I am going to enjoy every day. Our climate in North Florida supports so many different and excit-ing plant varieties. But to be successful, we need to first make sure that the site and the plant are made for each other. The amount of sunlight, moisture, soil type and pH are some major considerations The FDEP Springs Initiative has a wonder-ful companion website http://www.floridayards.org where you can find lots of tips for landscap-ing. The site has an extensive Florida-friendly Plant Database to help you choose just the Right Plant. The Interactive Yard program will help you transform your yard into a beautiful Florida-friendly landscape. This months Master Gardener Library presen-tation is Getting Ready for Your Fall Vegetable Garden. This free work-shop will be held at the Fort White Public Library on Thursday, September 20th at 5:45. Come and get tips on successful gardening from Gerry Murphy, UF/IFAS Master Gardener. M any folks around our neck of the woods have heard about (and probably eaten at) Angelo & Sons Seafood Restaurant in Panacea and know that for years, the Petrandis Family has con-sistently served up some of the best seafood along the Forgotten Coast. While Angelos is a full service restaurant located on the banks of the Ochlocknee River and open nights only, except Saturday and Sunday, the Petrandis Family recently opened a new place that would serve the local folks and passersby breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Tropical Traders Shrimp Co. is an unassum-ing little eating spot located on Hwy 98 in Panacea. Set just off the road in a tur-quoise building with white trim, Tropical Traders is both a raw bar and a seafood market and offers umbrella-covered picnic tables for those willing to brave the heat and humid-ity of our Florida summers. Now, dont be fooled by the lack of ambiance when you walk through the door. Who needs some-thing nice to look at on the walls, when you can sit down and gobble up some of the freshest and cheap-est Apalachicola raw oys-ters around $4.00 a dozen raw or $5.00 steamed? You can also order Garlic & Parmesan or Bacon & Cheddar oysters, they just cost a dollar or two more but well worth the splurge! Other seafood offerings include fresh gulf shrimp streamed, fried or black-ened, snow crab, smoked fish or shrimp dip, and shrimp and grits. And dont let the paper plates, rolls of paper towels and plastic cups be your guide either Tropical Traders serves up a mean burger that reminds Mary Kay of the ones that used to be served at Angelos years ago when they were located in a little block building across the street. Its one of those burgers that arent exactly round and a little charred on the edges but so juicy you have to wipe your elbows as much as your mouth. Other sandwiches on the menu include fish sand-wiches, fresh smoked tuna (and not from a can) melt, jumbo slaw dogs, prime rib sandwich and Gyros they are Greek after all. One of our favorite appetizers are the Greek Potatoes, sliced, fried and then sauted in herb but-ter with Greek seasoning. Served with tzatziki dip-ping sauce, these pumped up fries are a perfect complement to anything on the menu. They also offer standard appetizers like corn nuggets, fried mushrooms, fried pickles, buffalo wings and cheese TASTE BUDDIES Genie Norman &Mary Kay Hollingsworth TASTE continued on 2A Sustainable, water-friendly practices Q D. Nichelle Demorest is a horticulture agent with the Columbia County Extension of the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorestdndemorest@ufl.edu By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comOne in four Columbia County residents face hun-ger every day. They choose between nutritious food and basic needs, like hous-ing or medicines. Children go to bed hungry, not sure when they will eat again. Hunger is a silent epidemic that affects one in six Americans, including 16 million children, accord-ing to Feeding America, the nations largest hunger relief organization. September is Hunger Action Month, a nation-wide campaign to help end hunger in America. During Mondays city council meeting, Lake City Mayor Stephen Witt is scheduled to issue a proclamation making September 2012 Hunger Action Month in the city. Also locally, Catholic Charities is asking for food donations to help fill the nearly-depleted Florida Gateway Food Bank. Theres two things people dont like to talk about: hunger and home-lessness, said Suzanne Edwards, chief operating officer of Catholic Charities Lake City Regional Office. For people facing hunger, its a hard situation to talk about, she said. Since the downturn in the econ-omy several years ago, the food bank has seen an increase in need and a decrease in donations, Edwards said. Our food pantries are so low right now, she said. Florida Gateway Food Bank, which dis-tributes food to agencies in Suwannee, Hamilton, Union and Columbia coun-ties, is about 90 percent empty right now, Edwards said.

To fight hunger in our community, local groups and businesses can hold food drives for the Florida Gateway Food Bank, which is a program of Catholic Charities and a sub-dis-tributor for a Jacksonville Feeding America food bank. Edwards suggests having a theme for each day of the drive, like Terrific Tuna day or Whole Wheat Wednesday. Any type of non-perishable food is needed, she said. Purchasing items during buy one, get one free promotions makes donating easy and afford-able. Area businesses will be raising hunger awareness with messages on their outdoor signs, she said.

By DAVID DISHNEAUAssociated PressSHARPSBURG, Md. The Civil War Battle of Antietam was so big, theyre re-enacting it twice. And nearly 8,000 re-enac-tors had to make a choice: strictly regimented realism or bombastic spectacle? The two privately financed events, both open to the public, were scheduled on back-to-back weekends leading up to Mondays 150th anniver-sary of the bloodiest day of combat on U.S. soil. About 4,000 uniformed re-enactors participated in last weekends event near Boonsboro, Md. Another 4,000 plan to take part in this weekends extravagan-za near Sharpsburg, Md. The dual re-enactments highlight a division between the hobbys so-called pro-gressive wing, with its scrupulous focus on his-torical accuracy, and mainstream re-enactors more interested in battle tactics and camaraderie than in having the correct number of uniform buttons. Both groups are dedicated to commemorating the clash that occurred Sept. 17, 1862, on rolling farm-land along Antietam Creek, about 60 miles north of Washington. More than 23,000 combatants from the North and South were reported dead, wounded or missing after 12 hours of carnage that began at dawn. The battle was indecisive, but it ended Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lees first invasion of the North. He led his battered troops back across the Potomac River into Virginia the next day, giving President Abraham Lincoln the politi-cal strength to issue a pre-liminary Emancipation Proclamation four days later, followed in January by the final version. Some historians consider Antietam a more critical turning point in the war than the Battle of Gettysburg, fought the following July.

Associated Press MACAU In the Philippines, a $4-billion casino will soon rise from reclaimed land on Manila Bay. In South Korea, for eign investors are expect ed to break ground next year on a clutch of casino resorts offshore. And on the eastern edge of Russia, authorities plan a resort zone aimed at drawing Chinese high-rollers. The projects are part of a casino building boom rolling across Asia, where governments are trying to develop their tourism mar kets to capture increasingly affluent Asians with a pen chant for gambling. Theyre building glitzy, upscale Las Vegas-style resorts in a bid to copy the runaway success of Asian gambling hubs Macau, which rapidly became the worlds biggest casino market after ending a monopoly, and Singapore, where the city-states first two casinos raked in an estimated $6 billion a year after their 2010 openings. The casino boom high lights how the gambling industry is being propelled by the regions rapid eco nomic growth, with mil lions entering the middle class thanks to rising incomes that allow them to spend more on travel and leisure pursuits. But it has also intensified debate over the social ills and perceived economic benefits of the gambling industry. Definitely, the success of Macau has set off a chain reaction in what is happening in the region, said Francis Lui, vice chair man of Macau casino oper ator Galaxy Entertainment Group. After the success of Macau and Singapore, of course you see more countries now assessing the pros and cons of hav ing gaming as a driving engine for bigger economic growth. In the future the region is going to have more casi nos. The fortunes to be made are immense. After Macau ended a four-decade monop oly and allowed in foreign operators such as Las Vegas Sands Corp., Wynn Resorts and MGM Resorts International, the former Portuguese colony on the southern edge of China quickly overtook the Las Vegas Strip as the worlds biggest gambling mar ket. The foreign operators helped supercharge growth in Macau previously known for its aging, seedy, no-frills casinos by build ing flashy gambling palaces drawing wealthy mainland Chinese. Last year the city of just 500,000 people raked in $33.5 billion in gambling revenue. In Singapore, the Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa, which together cost more than $10 billion, have put the city on track to becoming the worlds second-biggest gambling market. By 2015, consultants PricewaterhouseCoopers predict the surge in Asian casino revenues will have fundamentally reshaped the landscape of the global industry and help Asia edge out the United States as the worlds biggest regional market. PWC forecasts that the Asia-Pacific gambling mar ket will more than double from $34.3 billion in 2010 to $79.3 billion in 2015, surpassing the U.S., which is estimated to grow from $57.5 billion to $73.3 billion in the same period. A number of projects planned or under way across the region are help ing to fulfill that predic tion. Cambodian operator Nagacorp, which runs the only casino in the Southeast Asian citys capital, Phnom Penh, plans to open a $369 million expansion including hotels and shopping later this year. The company operates buses equipped with massage chairs to pick up punters from neighbor ing Vietnam. Vietnam will get its first casino-resort next year. Canadian company Asian Coast Development is set to open a five-star MGMbranded beachfront com plex in the southeast. Its part of a $4.2 billion tour ist development aimed at drawing foreign visitors. Both countries bar their own citizens from entering casinos. Even the neglected Russian Pacific port city of Vladivostok, perhaps best known as the eastern ter minus for the famed TransSiberian Railway, plans to get in on the action. Authorities announced plans in May to invite foreign investors to help develop an entertainment zone with no less than 12 casinos aimed at attracting Chinese and other North Asian visitors. When com pleted, annual revenues could reach $5.2 billion, according to a forecast by consultants. In Japan, where legal ization has been debated for years, lawmakers have been inching closer to approving casinos as a way to stimulate the economy and boost tourism follow ing last years devastating tsunami and nuclear disas ter. But not everyone is con vinced its a gamble that will economically benefit Japan, which already allows gambling on horse, boat and bicycle racing as well as slots. If we get casinos in Japan, that will destroy the nation, said Ken Wakamiya, an author and anti-gambling activist. He pointed out that pachinko, a slot machinelike game, is one of the countrys most popular forms of gambling. But he said its played widely by poor people and as a result made them even poorer. Introducing casinos is a plan to rip off our own people. It is an act of mad ness, he said. A similar debate has played out in Taiwan, which will get its first casino after residents on the island of Matsu voted in favor in July. Casinos are banned in Taiwan except on outlying islands, where approval in a referendum is needed. Some countries are looking to Singapore as a model for how to bring in gambling without the sideeffects. The country, which authorized two big casinoresorts as part of an effort turn the Southeast Asian city-state into a gambling and tourism magnet, is tightening what are already some of the strictest mea sures in Asia to control organized crime and gam bling addiction. Junket operators mid dlemen that bring in wealthy high-rollers but which have also been linked to organized crime are almost com pletely banned. Regulators also plan a big hike in the amount casino operators can be fined for breaking regula tions that include charging locals 100 Singapore dollars ($81) a day to enter. The government also expanded a program ban ning people who are bank rupt or receiving welfare from entering casinos, rais ing the number to 43,000. Despite the measures, more low income players are betting bigger amounts, according to a 2011 survey by the National Council on Problem Gambling, while the Samaritans counsel ing hotline reports receiv ing an increasing number of calls involving problem gambling. The gambling industry is not a sector that creates value-added products or services and therefore will have little impact on the development of the future economy, said Vincent Wijeysingha, treasurer of the opposition Singapore Democratic Party. It does not contribute to the deepening of economic capacity or the introduc tion of new or innovative services or industrial tech niques. In the Philippines, church leaders have spoken out against a $4 billion project that the government hopes will turn a site on Manila Bay into the countrys ver sion of the Las Vegas Strip. Casinos have been legal since 1977 but many are small and run-down. Foreign investors including Macaus Melco Crown Entertainment, Japanese pachinko tycoon Kazuo Okadas Universal Entertainment and Malaysias Genting Bhd. are working separately with local partners on the project, which will include hotels, restaurants, muse ums, a marina and board walk and a monorail. The project, dubbed Entertainment City, is aimed at drawing wealthy foreign gamblers but church leaders say it would promote a culture of gam bling in the conservative, majority Roman Catholic Philippines. Gambling foments addiction, foments indo lence, foments a mentality of chance and it destroys families, said Retired Archbishop Oscar Cruz. In South Korea, Universal and two other companies plan to build resorts in a special economic zone near Incheon Airport on Yeongjong Island. 2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 Stop by the Lake City Reporter for your complimentary engagement package.

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2012 3D'/,)(By SCOTT MAYEROWITZAP Airlines WriterNEW YORK Some airlines are making travelers work harder to find a deal. Carriers are offering more deals to passengers who book flights directly on their websites. Its an effort to steer people away from online travel agen-cies such as Expedia, Orbitz and Travelocity, which charge the carriers commissions of roughly $10 to $25 a ticket. While travelers save money, they also must do without the convenience of one-stop shop-ping. Frontier Airlines is the latest carrier to jump into the fight, announcing Wednesday that it will penalize passengers who dont book directly with the air-line. Those fliers wont be able to get seat assignments until check-in. And theyll pay more in fees while earning half as many fre-quent flier miles. Particularly for families, it provides an incentive to book directly, said Daniel Shurz, Frontiers senior vice president, commercial. There is no logical reason for our customers to want to book anywhere else. Contracts with the online travel agencies prohibit airlines from offering lower fares on their sites. Instead, airlines such as JetBlue Airways Corp., Spirit Airlines Inc. and Virgin America often pro-vide discount codes in emails to their frequent fliers or through Facebook and Twitter. The savings for booking directly can be significant. Toronto-based Porter Airlines frequently offers codes that save travelers up to 50 percent. A recent search of flights from Chicago to Toronto for November produced an airfare of $249.61 using a code at flyporter.com. The same flights would have cost $404.38 through Travelocity. The airlines face a delicate balance. The online travel agencies account for the lions share of ticket sales. But the airlines want to trim the fees that eat into their profit margins. Besides the discounts, the airlines say their sites offer passen-gers a better experience, provid-ing up-to-date seat maps, details about in-flight entertainment and more seamless booking. Henry Harteveldt, co-founder Atmosphere Research Group, said the airlines and travel sites have a very, very dysfunctional business relationship. The travel sites treat all flights equally. Price is the only differentiator. The online travel agencies either wont or cant talk about how an airline might have Wi-Fi on a plane or extra legroom seats available, he said. The online agencies say they provide travelers with several advantages, including comparison shopping and the ability to mix and match airlines for a single trip. Thats something you cant do on an airlines site, said Dara Khosrowshahi, president and CEO of Expedia, Inc. Simon Bramely, vice president of transportation and lodg-ing for Travelocity, part of Sabre Holdings, noted that the flight is one element of the trip. He said online travel agencies can save travelers hassle and money by creating packages that include hotel rooms and car rentals. The battle is not new. Southwest Airlines Co. was a pioneer in cut-ting out the middleman. The air-line does not list its fares on third party sites. That means travelers have to search both southwest.com and then elsewhere to com-pare fares. Southwest hopes fliers will never make it to another site. We think we can have better control over the customer experience by dealing directly with them, said Southwest spokes-man Chris Mainz. Most of the big carriers have remained quiet. American Airlines, part of AMR Corp., was the exception. In December 2010, American cut off Orbitz Worldwide, Inc. from displaying its fares and selling its tickets to protest the commissions and the failure to displays extras like seat upgrades. The site had been sell-ing about 3 percent of the airlines overall tickets. Expedia joined the fight by making Americans fares harder to find. All sides eventu-ally settled their disputes. Frontier, part of Republic Airways Holdings Inc., is making its changes specifically to cut the commissions. A four-segment itinerary say a roundtrip flight from Sioux Falls, S.D., to Phoenix connecting in Denver each way booked directly through Frontier costs the airline $1.60 to process. That same itinerary booked through an online travel agent costs Frontier $20 to $26, depending on which website the ticket is booked on, according to Shurz. Those commissions add up: Shurz said Frontier spends about $55 million to 60 million annu-ally on distribution fees. In the first half of 2012, 42 percent of Frontiers $713 million in rev-enue came through tickets sold directly with the airline. Shurz hopes to increase that figure to 65 percent in a few years, cutting expenses in the process. Frontiers customers have a big incentive to book directly. Only those going through the airlines website will get to pick their seats in advance. Travelers booking through third-party web-sites will only get half the fre-quent flier miles. Fees for chang-ing itineraries, going standby, traveling as an unaccompanied minor or bringing a pet onboard will be $50 higher for those book-ing elsewhere. Frontier is a low-cost carrier based in Denver. It flies to 80 destinations in the United States, many smaller cities, as well as lei-sure destinations such as Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic. Through August, it carried 9.1 million pas-sengers. In that same period, United Continental Holdings Inc. carried 96.1 million passengers. In a related move to increase loyalty, Frontier is lowering the amount of frequent flier miles needed for a free flight by 5,000. The airline also changed its web-site URL to flyfrontier.com. About the only thing not changing are baggage fees: They will remain $20 for each of the first two checked bags regardless of where you buy a ticket. Q AP Airlines Writer Samantha Bomkamp contributed to this report. By SCOTT SONNERAssociated PressRENO, Nevada The annual air race in Nevadas Valley of Speed has a new name. Fans returning to see vintage World War II fighter planes streak across the sky will sit farther away. And a redesigned course poses less risk as pilots make the final turn toward the finish line. But for all the changes and new safety measures at the air race a year after a plane took a deadly plunge into spectators, the element of danger remains. Pilots will still be flying souped-up muscle planes wingtip to wingtip, sometimes exceed-ing 500 mph (800 kph). We never thought what happened last year would happen, but we know its not knitting, said Marilyn Dash, a biplane pilot from the San Francisco Bay Area whos the only woman in this years competition. Its not bowling. Nobody ever was killed bowling, were they? Organizers for the 49th annual National Championship Air Races adopted a half dozen changes recommended by the National Transportation Safety Board following the crash last September that killed 11 people, including pilot Jimmy Leeward, and injured more than 70 oth-ers. A reminder of the danger came Tuesday afternoon during qualifying heats for the fastest planes when the pilot of a vintage Hawker Sea Fury was forced to make a rough, emergency landing but escaped unhurt. Among the differences from last year, the course now is more than 1,000 feet (300 meters) from the grandstand, instead of 850 feet (260 meters), fuel trucks set away from the landing strip and the final turn of the race is less sharp. Some of the changes are more obvious than others, including the impact cra-ter on the edge of the tar-mac that has been paved over with asphalt and the official name change to the TravelNevada.com National Championship Air Races and Air Show presented by Breitling. The new name is the result of a one-time, $600,000 sponsorship the state tour-ism commission extended as a necessary component to keeping the event alive in the face of soaring insur-ance premiums. Race organizers hope the most significant changes will be behind the scenes, in training classes intend-ed to better prepare pilots for intense gravitational pull and wake turbulence, and along pit row where mechanics will be subject to a new inspection process that requires follow-up confirmation that ordered repairs actually get done a possible contributor to Leewards demise. It really seems about the same, Eric Zine, a pilot from Van Nuys, California. Theres increased focus on safety. But were doing stuff people dont do. Its not nor-mal to try to make a plane go faster than its designed to go. The Reno Air Racing Association also established a new position of safety czar with the authority to shut down the competition immediately if any concerns arise. NTSB chairwoman Deborah Hersman com-mended race organizers for steps taken to place even more emphasis on making the event safe for competi-tors and spectators alike. We know everybody is going to be paying close attention to the races this year and that is what every-one wants for additional scrutiny to occur, she said. Reno Mayor Bob Cashell and Sparks Mayor Geno Martini plan to help lead a special opening ceremo-ny before the six classes of championships begin Thursday and run through Sunday. Thursdays tribute will focus on first respond-ers with another on Sunday honoring victims and family members.Cheapest airfare might be on airlines own website Frontier Airlines jetliners sit stacked up at gates along the A concourse at Denver International Airport.

ASSOCIATED PRESS Danger in air again but some safety changesASSOCIATED PRESSA P-51 Mustang airplane crashes into the edge of the gra ndstands at the Reno Air show in Reno, Nev, leaving 11 people dead and 70 seriously in jured. rate battle re-enactments, but this is no ordinary anni-versary. Antietam, known in the South as the Battle of Sharpsburg, is the big-gest Civil War event of 2012. Many re-enactors who got into the hobby during the 125th anniver-sary are now in their 50s, with few opportunities left to join such large battle scenarios. Antietam came nearly 18 months after the wars opening shot at Fort Sumter, and 2 1/2 years before the Confederate sur-render at Appomattox, Va. Last weekends re-enactment was billed as a pro-gressive event, with rules governing everything from the type of shoes worn by soldiers to the number of cannons on the field just four per side. We press the guys to have exact, correct uni-forms, as best that they can, to duplicate the appearance so when the public sees it, its not just generic Civil War its like pulling back a window shade looking directly into September 62, said orga-nizer S. Chris Anders of Rear Rank Productions in Hagerstown. Anders group has been mounting such events for 12 years. The groups focus on authenticity has won fol-lowers such as John Miller of Waynesboro, Pa., whose unit opted for the progres-sive re-enactment. You research everything from your role, your character, all the way down to the uniforms that you wear, Miller said. For example, a certain regi-ment was wearing a certain style of jacket. The guys are going to research it, find the original piece, theyll make patterns off of it and then after that, a lot of them will go ahead and try to reconstruct those using the same methods that they used back then, which more or less is thread, nee-dle and hand and a lot of handwork. Such meticulous attention to detail has led some mainstream re-enactors to nickname their progressive brethren stitch-counters. They get a little bit elitist in their attitude and they can be a little snarky at times, said Dennis Rohrbaugh, a contractor from Chambersburg, Pa., whos leading about 150 re-enactors to the main-stream event produced by Civil War Heritage of Gettysburg, Pa. Rohrbaugh said mainstreamers and progres-sives share plenty of com-mon ground, but theres only so much realism he can stand. Just because soldiers at the time had dysentery doesnt mean we have to go out and have dysentery, Rohrbaugh said. Hes not above hiding a cooler at camp to keep food safely chilled. Civil War Heritage leader Kirk E. Douglas Sr. said the rules are looser at his mainstream event because its a show for spectators. People might come for the 68-gun artillery battle and the Civil War Balloon Corps although there were no hot-air balloons at Antietam and learn something in the process. The history program far exceeds the four hours of battles that well have, Douglas said. Christopher L. Smith, a re-enactor from Akron, Ohio, said the dual re-enact-ments evenly divided mem-bers of Birneys Division, composed of 24 Federal infantry re-enactor units in four states. Smith led a group to the progressive event, while Rohrbaugh headed the mainstream faction. Smith said the competing events caused confu-sion in the ranks. From a personal standpoint, Im not necessarily pleased about it, but people can do what they want to do, he said.

DEAR ABBY: Im a 41year-old divorced mother of two and grandmother of two. I own my own busi-ness, God blessed me with my first home two years ago, and Im happier than I have been in years. Im writing because I have been seeing a man for about six months whom I met at church. We have attended the same church for about two years. Gavin has never been married, has no children and doesnt want any. We have a great time together. We act like teen-agers in love. I know hes not seeing anyone else because we spend too much time together. Gavin calls me four to five times a day, brings me lunch at work and takes me out to eat all the time. He con-stantly buys me presents and helps my daughter out with money when things get tight. He has even helped me financially a few times and refuses to let me pay him back. I am falling in love with him. My problem? Every time I try to let Gavin know how I feel, he tells me not to let that happen. Its not what he wants, and he wants me to stop. (Yeah, right! Like I can turn my feelings on and off.) Anyway, he says we are NOT a couple, and I am free to do whatever I want to do. Am I asking too much to want us to take this rela-tionship to a new level? He shows all the signs of being in love with me by the way he treats me. His mixed signals are confusing. Am I really that naive? -UNSURE IN GREENSBORO, N.C. DEAR UNSURE: You are not naive. Hope springs eternal in the breast, and you are only human. When a man tells you he wants you to be free and to do whatever you want to do, what he really means is he wants to be free to do whatever HE wants to do. As much as Gavin cares for you, its not enough for him to make a lifetime commit-ment. So, if being married is your goal, recognize that this honest, but reluctant Prince Charming is not for you. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My 24year-old daughter, Lisa, informed me a year ago that she was engaged. Shes a college graduate living in another state and still look-ing for a job. Her fiance is a young Marine who plans to make it a career. Lisa was visiting this weekend and gave us the wed-ding date, which is in three months. She already has her invitations and bridesmaids picked out, etc. As she was leaving, she broke down and said she had something to tell me. They were married six months ago. She still wants to continue with her wed-ding plans, and have me walk her down the aisle. My wife and I are hurt and angry for having been lied to. My question is, should I go along with this charade? Any other wis-dom to impart? -LISAS DISAPPOINTED DAD DEAR DAD: At least your daughter told you in advance. I have heard from parents who didnt learn the truth until months or years after the wedding. Calmly convey your thoughts to your daughter as you have done so clearly in your let-ter. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Avoid erratic behav-ior. You may not agree with someone, but letting your emotions intervene to cause an unnecessary rift will lead to sadness, not joy. Rethink your position and do your best to find a workable solu-tion. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Check into professional possibilities, educational pur-suits or whatever you need to do in order to upgrade your lifestyle. Dont let anyone put you down or discourage you from following your dreams. Avoid arguments and minor mishaps. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Too much of anything will lead to disaster. You can have fun without overspend-ing. Broaden your spectrum when it comes to playful pos-sibilities. Coming up with a fun-filled day that is cost-efficient will impress some-one you love. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your ability to master-fully come up with solu-tions that make your home and family life better will lead to gratitude from those in your life who count the most. Discuss your plans and youll get the help you need. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You arent lost -youre just sightseeing. Taking the scenic route to your destination will allow you time to think, relax and enjoy the moment. Love is highlighted, and spending time with someone special will make your day. Live, love and laugh. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take on a challenge that makes you think about the future and what you are capable of doing. A change in plans will enable you to help someone who has something to offer in return. Dont take risks when it involves your physical well-being. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Hiding something or with-holding information will lead to friction. Think about whats happening in your personal life and make the adjustments required to lead to a better future. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take advantage of any expert advice being offered. The suggestions you receive will allow you to move ahead with your plans. A change of location will give you a different outlook and greater opportunities. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Take care of your physical health, and do your best to avoid excess of any kind. Alter the way you live if it will help you improve your lifestyle. Love is on the rise and socializing will pay off romantically. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Make decisions based on practicality, not what others want. You may not please everyone, but you will eventually get the praise you deserve for your efforts and insight. Update your image and do your best to make new acquaintances. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put money into your sur-roundings and future. There will be a high return for the alterations and investments you make now.

6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2012 '/,)(By CANDICE CHOIAP Food Industry WriterNEW YORK McDonalds restaurants in the U.S. will soon get a new menu addition: The number of calories in the chains burgers and fries. The worlds biggest hamburger chain said Wednesday that it will post calorie information on restaurant and drive-thru menus nationwide starting Monday. The move comes ahead of a regu-lation that could require major chains to post the information as early as next year. We want to voluntarily do this, said Jan Fields, president of McDonalds USA. We believe it will help educate customers. In cities such as New York and Philadelphia where posting calorie information is already required, however, Fields notes that the information has not changed what customers choose to order. When its all said and done, the menu mix doesnt change, she said. But I do think people feel better knowing this informa-tion. The chain also plans to announce that its restaurants in Latin America, which are owned by a franchisee, will start provid-ing calorie information on menus this spring. McDonalds, based in Oak Brook, Ill., already posts calorie information in Australia, South Korea and the United Kingdom. The decision to post calorie information in the U.S. follows the Supreme Courts decision this sum-mer to uphold President Barack Obamas health care overhaul, which includes a regulation that would require restaurant chains with more than 20 locations to post calorie information. The timetable for carrying out that requirement is being worked out. Corporate Accountability International, which has urged McDonalds to stop marketing its food to children, notes that the chain has fought efforts to institute menu labeling in local jurisdictions in the past and said its latest move was certainly not voluntary. The posting of calorie information isnt a magic bullet in fighting obesity but could have a big effect over time, says Margo Wootan, director of nutrition at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, which advocates on nutrition and food safety issues. Obesity isnt the kind of thing where one day you wake up and youre fat. We gradually and slow-ly gain weight over time, she said. So even if only some people are swayed to make slightly better choices, Wootan thinks theres a big benefit to providing calorie information. Another upside is that companies tend to work harder to provide healthier options when theyre forced to display calorie information. It can be embarrassing, or shocking, so they end up chang-ing the way the product is made, Wootan said. Joe Finn, a sales manager from Oconomowoc, Wis., said he was surprised at the calorie information posted at a hamburger restaurant when he flew out to California earlier this year for the Rose Bowl. All the calories were up there, and I thought, well, Im not going to order that, said Finn, 51, whos trying to watch what he eats. He ended up picking the most basic burger, without cheese. Back at home, he tries to stick to options where he knows the calorie infor-mation, such as Subway sand-wiches. Otherwise you could be ordering a gut bomb, he said. The move by McDonalds could spur other restaurant chains to move ahead of the federal regula-tion. The Wendys Co. did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Representatives for Burger King Worldwide Inc. and Yum Brands Inc, which owns Taco Bell and KFC, said theyre waiting for further guidance from regulators before updating their menus. McDonalds is also testing healthier options for next year, such as an Egg McMuffin made with egg whites and a whole grain muffin. The sandwich has Canadian bacon and white ched-dar cheese and clocks in at 260 calories. It will be called the Egg White Delight. The chain is also testing versions of the McWrap, which is a bigger version of its chicken Snack Wrap that is already sold in Europe. The wraps have sliced cucumbers and range from 350 calories to 580 calories. The moves reflect the pressures McDonalds and other fast-food chains are facing amid grow-ing concerns about obesity. A meal consisting of a Big Mac and medium fries, for example, has 920 calories. Add a 16-ounce Coca-Cola, and the count rises to 1,140 calories. As for the companys move earlier this year to automatically include apple slices in its Happy Meals, Sara Deon of Corporate Accountability said it amounted to a PR scheme designed to drive traffic to stores to sell burg-ers and fries. McDonalds also faces competition from chains such as Subway, which positions itself as a healthy alternative to traditional hamburger chains. McDonalds, which has 14,000 locations in the U.S., doesnt plan to advertise the posting of the calorie information. Fields said its something the chain is doing as a customer convenience.McDonalds new menu item: Calorie counts Carlos Gonzalez and Elsa Guzman eat breakfast at a McDo nalds restaurant, Wednesday, in New York.

ASSOCIATED PRESS By WAYNE PARRYAssociated PressSEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. Jersey Shore is over and done in Seaside Heights, but the MTV real-ity show is still causing aggravation for some folks here. New Jersey liquor regulators said Thursday that they have fined a Seaside Heights cantina $15,000 for serving a visibly intoxi-cated Deena Cortese just before she wandered out into traffic in June. As a condition of an agreement negotiated with Spicy Cantina & Mexican Grill, Cortese is banned from the premises for two years. According to New Jerseys Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, Cortese and an entourage that included an MTV film crew were at the restaurant for 90 minutes on June 10. During that time, Cortese walked on the bar, fell to the ground, then climbed up and stood on a red bench at a table of restaurant patrons. Cortese also left the premises with an alcoholic beverage a big no-no in New Jersey walked onto the boardwalk and returned to the bar a short time later. This settlement is a cautionary tale for licensees who might think ignoring the law for the sake of air time is good for business, said Michael Halfacre, the divisions director. By turning a blind eye to the mayhem that can be associ-ated with reality television, you are risking your liveli-hood. That is, without a doubt, bad for business. A woman who answered the telephone at Spicy Cantina on Thursday said no one from the business would comment on the set-tlement. MTV recently announced that Jersey Shore will conclude after its upcoming sixth season, which begins Oct. 4. The series features a cast of over-tanned, overloud and always pumped-up characters who tried the patience of local residents with their party-hearty antics. The show strayed from Jersey during its run, taking the cast to Miami Beach and Italy. Cortese, 25, was arrested by Seaside Heights police for disorderly conduct. According to police reports, Cortese was observed run-ning out of Spicy Cantina and into the street. She began dancing in the intersection and appeared to be intoxicated after los-ing her balance several times, the alcohol division said. Cortese then walked down a street, grabbed the trunk of a car and continued to dance. Seaside Heights Police said her behavior was seri-ously restricting the flow of the traffic and then placed her under arrest. Afterward, state officials said, Cortese told police she had been drinking throughout the day. At a municipal court appearance a month later, she pleaded guilty to fail-ing to use the sidewalk and paid a $106 fine. (Her plea came in the same court-room where Jersey Shore pal Nicole Snooki Polizzi pleaded guilty to disturbing other beachgoers in 2010.) Cortese apologized to the court, then got a talking-to from her mother. She also had to pay $33 in court costs but avoided a criminal conviction by pleading guilty to a violation of the motor vehicle code. In the settlement with the state, Spicy Cantina also admitted serving Cortese drinks she did not order, which is illegal in New Jersey. The business faces a 10day suspension of its liquor license if it violates state alcohol laws over the next two years.

The Guinness World Records 2013 book pub-lished Thursday recognizes Zeus of Otsego, Mich., as the worlds Tallest Dog. The 3-year-old measures 44 inches from foot to shoulder. Standing on his hind legs, Zeus stretches to 7-foot-4 and towers over his owner, Denise Doorlag. Zeus is just an inch taller than the previous record-holder, Giant George. Zeus weighs 155 pounds and eats a 30-pound bag of food every two weeks. Doorlag says she had to get a van to be able to trans-port Zeus. Great Dane is tallest dog Zeus drinks from the kitchen faucet in Otsego, Mich. The Great Dane is now officially the worlds tallest canine according to the record book. ASSOCIATED PRESSBy LEANNE ITALIEAssociated PressNEW YORK Welcome aboard the mother ship, Emma Bing. The woman who was her mothers inspiration for writing what millions of pregnant women consider their bible, What to Expect When Youre Expecting, is now pregnant herself and joining the family business. Bing, 29, is due on her second wedding anniver-sary, Feb. 18, and guess whos going to be in the delivery room. Are you kidding me? Of course, Bings mom, Heidi Murkoff, gushed Thursday. I wouldnt miss it. Bing, who lives near mom in Los Angeles, will be blogging her pregnan-cy and parenting experi-ences, along with fashion and beauty advice, for her fellow millennial moms on Whattoexpect.com, start-ing Friday. Murkoff wrote the book proposal for What to Expect while pregnant with Emma, her oldest of two, and delivered it to her publisher the day she went into labor. The book came out in 1985 and now has more than 17 million copies in print, spawning several more about the early years of parenting, eating healthy while pregnant and even a prequel, What to Expect Before Youre Expecting. The work of the 53-yearold Murkoff, including a foundation that helps preg-nant women in the devel-oping world, earned her a spot on Time magazines list of 100 most influential people in the world last year. She was also execu-tive producer of the movie inspired by the book, aptly named What to Expect When Youre Expecting. Is Murkoff her daughters go-to source on all things pregnancy? I wouldnt have it any other way, Bing said. Im not going through this without her.
