By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comC reeping toward apartment buildings, a wooded area entic-es children down its well-worn paths. However, the overgrown, litter-strewn brush also serves as cover for illegal activities. Unified Body of Christ Church members organized Wednesday to clear away trash and cut back overgrown woods bordering the east side of Cedar Park Apartments in northern Lake City. Pastor Willie Brown said he has seen children cutting through the woods, but worries about the drug use that happens behind the cover of the overgrown tree limbs. Most areas of the subsidized apart-ment complex offer unobstructed views, but a child could easily be snatched into the wooded area, he said. Brown said the goal of the community action project is to keep activities in plain view. This is a community, he said. We want to always encourage people to do better and see better, Brown said. Last month, Brown and the apartment manager hosted a back-to-school event, when he saw the problem. Cedar Park is home to many children, he said. In the 70s, there were more elderly people living in the complex, he said. It wasnt the way it is now, he said. Crime is more intense, he said. Fights turn into wars, Brown said. Brown himself lived a stones throw from Cedar Park and used to play in the courtyard with friends from school. Brown said he wants residents to see someone outside the apartments cares about them. However, some people in the complex do not appreciate the cleanup, he said. Its their getaway when the police come around, he said. Ill make sure it stays cleaned up, Brown said. Leslie Mitchell, youth choir director for the church, lives just steps from the wooded area. I have five kids. I want to By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLocal supervisor of elections office officials say a judges rul-ing could impact the number of early voting days residents will have to cast their ballots for the Nov. 6 election. A federal judge says he will rule soon on whether to block a controversial state law that limits the number of early voting days in Florida. Liz P. Horne, Columbia County supervisor of elections, said the decision could impact local early voting if the judge decides to allow 15 days for early voting. It may change the hours of operation, she said. It would be something we would consider because we have small staff where would have to adjust our hours. We may go back to 8:30 a.m. 4:30 p.m., seven days a week for early voting. It could make a dif-ference in what our hours would be during early voting, but its just something Ill have to look at when they bring that decision down. Judge Timothy Corrigan held a three-hour hear-ing Wednesday on a lawsuit brought by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Fla. and others that contends the current law discriminates against blacks because they vote early in large percentages. Corrigan peppered both sides with questions about whether there were reasons for him to block the law so close to Election Day.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Scott seeks help for laid off workers TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott, who has made job creation his top prior ity, said layoffs of Florida airline and wind turbine workers are disappointing. Scott said Wednesday that he has asked state and local economic devel opment and employment agencies to help find new jobs for laid off workers. American Airlines on Tuesday announced it plans to let about 4,400 employees go nationally including more than 1,400 in South Florida. Siemens Energy Inc., meanwhile, said it will lay off 615 wind turbine work ers in three states includ ing about 60 at its Orlando headquarters. Reports released in Zimmerman case ORLANDO Forensic tests show George Zimmermans DNA was the only one that could be identified on the grip of the gun used to fatally shoot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The results made public Wednesday rule out Martins DNA from being on the guns grip. Zimmermans DNA also was identified on the guns holster. The tests were inconclusive as to whether Martins DNA was on the guns holster. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree mur der for fatally shooting Martin during a confronta tion in a gated community in Sanford in February. Zimmerman is pleading not guilty, claiming selfdefense. Bus driver falls ill, boy takes over NAPLES Jackson Bonar, 11, stopped a school bus after its driver became ill and lost control. Bonar was the last child on the bus Tuesday afternoon. The bus was two streets away from his home when the driver began driving erratically. Jackson said that the driver made a strange face and fell against the window. Jackson said the bus was headed toward a palm tree, so he jumped out of his seat, hit the brakes and steered into a chain-link fence. The sixth-grader said he worried that if the bus hit a tree, the impact would trigger the air bag and hurt the driver more.

Associated Press Rudd, looking for change, returns to stage NEW YORK F or the past few years, somethings been slowly gnawing at Paul Rudd the lure of live theater. The 43-year-old star, who has been on a goofy come dic tear lately with Our Idiot Brother, Dinner for Schmucks, Wanderlust and TVs Parks and Recreation, was itching to get back to his roots. I was kind of antsy, he said. I was, I think, kind of finally hitting a place where I thought, I just want to try something a little different. And not just with the genre but even the medium. Hes more than gotten his wish. In the play Grace, which opens on Broadway on Oct. 4, Rudd slips into a pitch-dark role an evangelical Christian who basically unravels onstage. I was drawn to this character because its a different character for me and certainly different than any thing Ive played in the last several years, said the boyish-looking actor. I thought it was bold and fresh and something I hadnt seen before. Grace also stars seven-time Emmy Award winner Edward Asner, Boardwalk Empire regular Michael Shannon and Kate Arrington, a vet eran of the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago. Rudd and Arrington play a couple who arrive in Florida with big plans to open a chain of gospel-themed motels until they meet an agitated rocket scientist neighbor, played by Shannon, and a caustic exterminator, played by Asner. Chaos ensues. Kelly makes Soul Train history, Usher up for 5 NEW YORK R. Kelly is nomi nated for two awards at this years Soul Train Awards, making him the most nominated act ever at the awards show.

Dad gave teens alcohol, say police From staff reports A Lake City man was arrested Sunday morning for allegedly providing his child and two other teenagers with alcohol after authorities were called to the scene of a disturbance. Timmy L. Barfuss, 38, 332 NW Genell Loop, was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $1,000 bond. According to Lake City Police Department reports, around 4:03 a.m. Sunday, officers were dispatched to 636 NW Palm Drive for complaints of kids drinking in the street. When officers Staci Brownfield and Mike Del Castillo arrived they said they found Barfuss, a 15-year-old and two 17year-olds standing around a truck in the front yard, drinking beer. Barfuss attempt ed to casually get the beer cans from the teens and pour them out without getting the officers attention according to police reports. Officers reported they noted the distinct odor of alcohol emanating from all three teens as they were talking to them, dur ing which the 15-year-old began vomiting up alco hol. Due to the childs condition, an EMS unit was called to treat the teen and the teen was turned over to the custody of his mother. During the on-scene investigation, authorities reportedly found recently emp tied beer cans in the bed of the truck, interior of the open truck an din the front yard. Authorities said they determined Barfuss provided the alcohol to the three teens. Barfuss was arrested for contribut ing to the delinquency of a minor and two of the juveniles were arrested for posses sion of alcohol by a minor and disorderly conduct, reports said.

NASA retired its shuttle fleet last summer, under direction of the White House, to spend more time and money on reaching destinations beyond lowEarth orbit. Asteroids and the planet Mars are on the space agencys radar for crewed missions. Houston, home to the Johnson Space Center and Mission Control, was one of the bidders for a permanent shuttle exhibit. It lost, and instead has received a mock-up from Kennedy. The one were getting is a toy. An important toy, but a toy nonetheless, said Rush, wearing a t-shirt proudly pro claiming that he had witnessed NASAs last shuttle launch. Back-to-back delays in the ferry flight resulted in one day being cut from the Houston visit.

S tep aside, 1 percent. Its Mitt Romneys 47 percent that will domi-nate the presidential campaign from now on. And what a motley crew it is. The nearly half of the population that is paying no federal income tax today and may receive government benefits has been written off by the GOP candidate, based on a pri-vate talk he gave to campaign donors in May. This and other remarks captured on a now-viral video released by Mother Jones illuminate a frightening world view for a presidential nominee and a stark contrast to the philosophies of past Republican presidents. The remarks were all the more chilling because, Romney says, they were unscripted. This apparently is how he thinks. Who are the newly infamous 47 percent? Nearly a quarter are retirees -those aging, mostly white, often Republican moochers now on fixed incomes. Many are vet-erans -notoriously underpaid in the military and then, when they come home from com-bat, leeching services from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Then there are the working poor, who pay payroll and other federal taxes but make too little to pay the gradu-ated income tax, a system Republican presidents helped to build. Only about 8 percent pay no federal taxes at all, according to a Washington Post analysis -basically the unemployed, the disabled and the very poor. Many of these folks are part of the Republican base (except, most likely, those shiftless col-lege students frittering away time on engineering degrees). But Romney suggests all 47 percent believe they are vic-tims. He was insulting his own voters. This just scrapes the surface of Romneys world view. As if to mock the struggle of Americans born into poverty, he said: There is a percep-tion, Oh, we were born with a silver spoon, he never had to earn anything and so forth. Frankly, I was born with a sil-ver spoon, which is the great-est gift you can have: which is to get born in America. Romney was born rich. He went to the best schools, trav-eled, never had to worry about his next meal. And thats great. Every parent would love to offer those advantages. But it is not the same as a child growing up in East Palo Alto, dodging gunfire and seeing too little of parents working two jobs to get by. Romney also lobbed a grenade into the Middle East tin-derbox, declaring Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace. Along with half of Americans, he writes off the Palestinian people, many of whom work hard for peace, along with many Israelis. He apparently would abdicate the United States stand-ing to broker compromise, leaving little hope of avoiding all-out war. There were indications before this that Romney is clueless about average peoples lives and inept at foreign policy. But the clarity of the views in this talk has to give all Americans pause. Or at least 47 percent of them. Romneys47 percent commentshows hisworld view ONE OPINION M itt Romney has settled on a curi-ous campaign strategy: insult-ing the people he needs to get elected as presi-dent. At a $50,000-a-plate fundraiser last May in Boca Raton, Romney devolved himself of the curious thought that 47 percent of the electorate will vote for President Barack Obama no matter what because they are completely dependent on the government to care for them. They believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That thats an entitle-ment. And the government should give it to them. ... These are people who pay no income tax. Casually dismissing nearly half of all Americans as freeload-ers, he said that, presumably, as president: My job is not to worry about these people. Ill never convince them they should take personal responsi-bility and care for their lives. The Tax Foundation, a think tank in Washington, D.C., found that the 10 states with the high-est number of these people who dont pay income taxes are in red states most likely to go for Romney. The Tax Policy Center, which does independent analysis, says that, indeed, 46 percent of Americans paid no federal income tax last year, although they did pay other taxes: federal payroll and excise taxes, state and local income taxes, sales and property taxes. The TPC says half of those who didnt pay income taxes didnt earn enough to owe any. Others didnt pay income taxes because of exemptions, deduc-tions and credits intended to benefit senior citizens and low-income working families with children. White senior citizens are -or maybe, in light of events, were -one of Romneys strongest demographics, and surely struggling blue-collar families might have been sus-ceptible to his promise to create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. But then the Romney campaign, being conducted at a leisurely, unhurried pace that surely worries his supporters, has strayed almost completely from what they thought would be their winning issue: jobs and the economy. It is way too early to write off the GOP nominees campaign, but there are signs of worry within: reports that ambitious Republicans are quietly elbow-ing and jostling to position themselves for 2016, just in case of a Romney loss, and fur-ther reports of dissension and infighting among his campaign staff, a circular firing squad, as one observer put it. There seems to be no good way to look at this incident. Either Romney really believes that nearly half of the countrys residents are shiftless wards of the government or he was shamelessly pandering to a roomful of rich people, many of them no doubt skilled in the arts of tax avoidance. Neither explanation speaks well of him. Romneys new tactic: Insult his own voters LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:COMMUNICATIONS. This word represents the worlds big-gest problem. What a different world it would be if we could all successfully do this. I contacted the local office of our Florida House of Representatives sev-eral times in June and July of this year and asked that I be contacted in regard to a possible solution to a problem that exists between our federal govern-ment and our state government. I was never contacted. I sent a certified letter to our repre-sentative on July 25, 2012, and someone signed for this letter on July 26, 2012. I have a signed receipt. The representative, nor anyone else ever contacted me. What I wanted to discuss was a possible solution to the problem of someone who is deceased voting. This was a problem during the election of a presndent almost four years ago. It seems to me the State of Florida passed a law in which, when someone dies, that a certi-fied copy of the death certificate be sent in a timely manner to the appropriate supervisor of elections office in the county where the deceased person lived. This action would be the authority to remove that per-son from the voting rolls. This would be the responsibility of the funeral home that either (1) prepared the body for a funeral or memorial service or (2) the next of kin if there was no funeral or memorial service, except for the immediate family and/or friends, or the entity that was responsible for the death certificate to be prepared. With such a law in place then this state could tell the federal government to spend their time on something constructive. Since i have not heard from the representitive then I must conclude that either the person was not advised of my letter or had knowledge of my letter and chose to ignore it. Charles A.

BY E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org T he liberal media went wild over a video of Mitt Romney saying people who pay no taxes and live off government handouts have no reason to vote for him. Left unsaid is that Barack Obama has been run-ning on exactly that platform. When it comes to the culture of dependency, President Obama built that. Mr. Obama views government as a bottomless well of free handouts. Every idea, every pro-posal, every promise Mr. Obama makes involves the government giving something to somebody. His urgent focus is to expand and strengthen governments role in everyones daily life. This was illustrated in the Obama campaign slideshow The Life of Julia, a detailed roadmap for cradle-to-grave dependence on government. Every slide began with, Under President Obama which the White House believes is the proper place for Americans. Mr. Obama said he wanted to spread the wealth around and fundamentally transform America. Unfortunately, he has. There are more Americans in poverty now than when President Lyndon Johnson declared war on it in 1964. The vaunted stimulus program was nearly a trillion dollars of giveaways to well-connected insiders. It failed to produce the promised job benefits but did prop up a network of Obama cronies who would have a hard time competing on a level play-ing field. All Mr. Obama can do is spend other peoples money and run up debt like a teenager with a credit card. Mr. Obamas voter base is typified by the euphoric 2008 supporter who said she, never thought this day would ever hap-pen. I wont have to worry about putting gas in my car. I wont have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know, if I help him, hes gonna help me. There is no reason for the moocher class to vote for someone like Mr. Romney who promises fiscal accountability. He threatens their government goodies.

On September 18, 2012 and September 19, 2012 you published letters from Janet Horton that exceeded your 400 word requirement by at least 5 times. In fact, they were longer than the normal writings on your Opinion page. Why is this so? Concerning the the one No discretion in enforcing the law, I was at Chief Gilmores meet-ing and Ms. Horton expressed the same opinion that Police Officers should have NO discre-tion on law enforcement but just write tickets and the Lake City Police would have lots of money to operate. Others there expressed their displeasure by making verbal comments about how ridiculous her ideas were. If she believes in enforcing rules, WHY did she break your rules for letter writing two days in a row? It appears that Ms. Horton wants rules to apply to others but not her! In addition, I have lived in many states in the USA, and I find this Chief of Police to be one of the best I have had the pleasure of having as Chief of Police. Alan J.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER NATIONAL THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2012 Page Editor: Jason M. Walker, 754-0460$ Prefab homes make inroads; promise efficiencyBy CEDAR BURNETTAssociated Press So much of what is in our homes these days is factory-made toasters, furniture, toys but not the homes themselves. Most are still built onsite, as opposed to being prefabricated and trucked in. That doesnt make sense, said Sheri Koones, author of four books on prefab housing, including the new Prefabulous and Almost Off the Grid: Your Path to Building an Energy-Efficient Home. Would you want your car to be built in your driveway? said Koones, of Greenwich, Conn. Of course you wouldnt. You want your car made in a climate-controlled factory by skilled professionals on an assembly line. Wouldnt you want the same thing for your home? Prefab housing, a concept thats been around at least since Sears and other companies introduced mail-order kits in the early 1900s, generally refers to factory-built modular and panelized housing. They are built to the same code as traditionally built homes, with additional structural requirements to make sure they withstand being trans-ported. Depending on the homes size, multiple piec-es (or modules) are deliv-ered to a site and secured together onto the foundation in a matter of hours. Prefab homes are typically 60 percent to 90 per-cent complete at the time of delivery, but often require an additional two or three weeks for finishing touch-es. By contrast, mobile homes, which carry much of the stigma against prefabricated housing, are built to a more lenient fed-eral code, arrive on their own wheels, depreciate quickly and are not gener-ally zoned for urban use. Because modular prefab homes are indistinguish-able from site-built homes, they have become increas-ingly popular, pushed by the growing interest in green building. Prefab homes are much more efficient and environ-mentally friendly. There is so much less waste in the manufacturing process. Any excess materials can be recycled into other homes or sent back to the manu-facturer instead of ending up in a dumpster, Koones says. Because the materi-als arent exposed to the elements, prefab houses avoid problems with mold, rot and bacteria... . She also cites worker health and safety as a ben-efit to building homes off-site. Prefab construction professionals can work year-round, indoors, with-out being exposed to the elements. Still, some consumers remain unsure of what a green home built off-site would entail. Greenfab, a Seattle company, recently used a newly built prefab home as a teaching tool. After producing the first plati-num LEED-certified pre-fab home in Washington State, Greenfab opened the modern house to the public for three months. School groups, builders, buy-ers and nonprofit groups toured it. People in the neighborhood just saw a founda-tion in the morning, and came home to find a com-pleted house, said Johnny Hartsfield, founder and president of Greenfab. ASSOCIATED PRESSThe exterior of a modern prefab house in Seattle, Wash., created by Seattle company, Greenfab, was the first platinum LEED-certified prefab home in Washington state. By JENNIFER FORKERAssociated PressIf youre itching to take up knitting or are stuck in a beadwork project, theres help and many classes online. Options range from professionally videotaped courses to quick tutorials posted on YouTube and craft blogs. Some cost money, oth-ers are free. A look at just some of whats out there: Craftsy, a relative newcomer to the business of online craft classes, is already a giant in the field, having racked up 1 million registered users since its start last summer. The Denver companys lighthearted website one page features a Chihuahua decked out in tiny scarf and matching leg warmers lists more than 100 courses and workshops. Craftsy provides classes for beginners and advanced hobby-ists in cake decorating, quilting, sewing, beadwork and more. Class enrollment is up to 1,600 a day, and the site is adding 15 new classes each month, says John Levisay, chief executive officer of Craftsy and parent company Sympoz. People are busy. Thats why they cant take a live class, said Levisay. But people do have small-size chunks of time. A threeto six-hour Craftsy class provided in 30-minute lessons costs from $14.99 to $49.99. Instructors are profession-ally videotaped and the classes posted to the site. Once pur-chased, a class can be watched at any time. Students can post ques-tions to teachers, who respond within a day or two. The crafting world has long shared knowledge via tutori-als, usually free and posted to YouTube and blogs. A few popular sites: Cut Out + Keep, Knitting Help and Sew Mama Sew. Kristin Link of Portland, Ore., started Sew Mama Sew, an online fabric and supplies shop, more than seven years ago. While that site provides dozens of free sew-ing tutorials, Link also will be teaching two classes for Craftsy. People have different ways of learning, said Link, a former mid-dle-school teacher. Some people really need to hear it as well as see it to be able to understand it. Kate Mason, who is on the communications staff at YouTube, the online video-sharing company based in San Bruno, Calif., said she taught herself how to work a sewing machine and the basics of quilting by watching YouTube videos -lots of them. Crafters post questions to the YouTube videos they watch, often eliciting new videos. Its an incredibly dynamic place where the conversation goes both ways, said Mason. Craftcast with Alison Lee offers its own take on the craft class: Students tune in to live, 90-minute classes that lean heavily toward jewelry-making and sculpting. The classes are offered once a week, said Lee, of New York City, and recordings are available for $39.95. Lees live classes, which cost $44.95 each, work like a Webinar: As an instructor works through a project, participants can type questions to Lee, who moderates the discussion. She recently host-ed a free live class featuring art-ists and their favorite craft tools, for which 800 people signed up from around the world, she said Its more of an online party, Online instruction takes off among crafters ASSOCIATED PRESSThis publicity photo provided by Craftsy shows Elizabeth Hartman who teaches Inspired Modern Quilts and Creative Quilt Bac ks classes online at Craftsy.

Associated Press NEW YORK Verizon and unions representing 43,000 employees have reached tentative, three-year agreements covering job security, retirement and other issues. As the agreements were being signed Wednesday, Verizon Communications Inc. called them fair and balanced. The pact comes more than a year after Verizon workers took part in a two-week strike amid tense negotiations. The company and the unions had dis-agreed on health care ben-efits, pensions, and work rules. The unions involved are the Communications Workers of America and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. CWA, which represents 34,000 Verizon workers from Virginia to Massachusetts, said the previous contract expired in August 2011. Verizon, unions reach contract By LEANNE ITALIEAssociated PressNEW YORK Ming Tsai, Mario Batali, Marc Forgione, Masaharu Morimoto and ... Matt Damon? Its an unlikely culinary cast that teamed Tuesday night to raise money for families struggling to pay their bills as they care for children fighting cancer. Damon donned a white chefs coat for sous chef duties under Ming in the center of a hotel ballroom to prepare hors doeuvres ahead of a sit-down meal hosted by the Family Reach Foundation, a non-profit the actor learned of through his brother, Kyle. Cancer is close to their hearts. Since 2010, their dad has been battling mul-tiple myeloma, a cancer that begins in plasma cells of bone barrow. My dad did very well in his life, the Academy Award winner said. Hes retired and he doesnt have to worry about any of this, but you know, its enough to worry about the cancer without actually thinking about taking on all these other ancillary issues. Its really a lot to handle. In addition to the M chefs, Floyd Cardoz also pitched in. The Top Chef Masters winner last year pledged his $100,000 in winnings to cancer causes. Ming and Damon joked before cooking com-menced on the actors skill level in the kitchen, with chef promising no food poisoning and Damon confessing hes no Bourne supreme. Oh no, I suck, he said, flashing a smile. On the menu: waffle seafood pizzas with a dollop of caviar from Morimoto, poached salmon with a black garlic tapenade from Tsai and orecchiette with rapini pesto and sausage from Batali. The Damon brothers recalled lots of chicken dishes growing up, and their mom asking them to pitch in on meal duty. Matts specialty? Beef stro-ganoff, with onion soup out of the bag. The father of four said he and his wife keep it simple food wise at home. Its not rocket science, he said. You try and sneak in something green and say dont worry, theres going to be another meal in three hours, so dont make it too compli-cated. Chefs, Ming said, are prone to helping out. The restaurateur and TV per-sonality in Damons home-town of Boston is one of the foundations ambas-sadors and convinced his chef pals to join him after he fulfilled the dying wish of a young girl to eat at his Blue Ginger with loved ones. The best part of our job is we get instant gratification, said Ming, who has shown families touched by cancer how to cook healthy, inexpensive meals. The small, 15-year-old foundation works with 16 hospitals around the coun-try to identify families in need of help with rent, util-ity bills, even paying tolls to and from treatments, said Rick Morello, a board member and founder. But the great thing about a foundation like this is it doesnt matter where you come down on health care, Damon said.

OLSEN andTHOMAS ADAMSONAssociated PressCOPENHAGEN A Swedish celebrity maga-zine published topless photos of Britains likely future queen Wednesday, and its sister publication in Denmark said it would do the same later this week. The unauthorized photos have already been widely published in France, Italy, Ireland and on the Internet, despite efforts by Prince William and Kate Middleton to halt their usage. The latest publication in Swedens Se & Hor came as French police opened a criminal investigation into whether the photos which first appeared in an edition of the French Closer magazine were an invasion of privacy. It is nothing new to us to publish nude photos of celebrities on holiday, said Carina Lofkvist, the chief editor of the Swedish magazine. She said actresses Demi Moore and Sharon Stone have done it and model Kate Moss have previously appeared half-naked in the magazine. No one complains when they do and we print the photos, Lofkvist said. Sister publication Se & Hoer in Denmark will publish the pictures in a 16-page supplement Thursday, said chief editor Kim Henningsen. He said the magazine had been offered 240 pictures but decided only to use 60 to 70 of them. He declined to say who sold them to the weekly or how much money they paid. In France, a court ordered police to obtain information on Closer magazine employees after the British royal couple filed the criminal complaint Monday. Marie-Christine Daubigney, assistant pros-ecutor for the Nanterre court, outside Paris, that she had instructed police to get the names of some Closer employees, includ-ing the journalist who wrote the article. She said she hadnt told police to identify the pho-tographer who took the pictures because that will be part of a later investiga-tion. The photographer trained a long lens on the royal couple as they sun-bathed on a private estate in southern France. Daubigney denied as completely untrue French media reports that police raided Closer magazine headquarters Wednesday.
Page Editor: Laura Hampson, 754-0427 LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2012 7A 7AHEALTH By KARL RITTER Associated Press STOCKHOLM Two Swedish women are hop ing to get pregnant after undergoing what doctors are calling the worlds first mother-to-daughter uterus transplants. Specialists at the University of Goteborg said they performed the surgery over the weekend without complications but added that they wont con sider it successful unless the women give birth to healthy children. Thats the best proof, said Michael Olausson, one of the surgeons. One of the unidentified women had her uterus removed many years ago because of cervical cancer, while the other was born without a womb. Both are in their 30s. They will undergo a year of observation before doctors attempt to help them get pregnant via in vitro fertilization, in which embryos created with eggs from their own ovaries will be implanted in their wombs. Researchers around the world have been looking for ways to transplant wombs so that women who have lost a uterus to cancer or other diseases can become pregnant. Fertility experts hailed the Swedish transplants as a significant step but stressed it remains to be seen whether they will result in successful preg nancies. Even if the approach works, it is unclear how many women will choose such an option, given the risks and the extreme nature of the operation compared with, say, using a surrogate mother. Turkish doctors last year said they performed the first successful uterus transplant, giving a womb from a deceased donor to a young woman. Olausson said that woman is doing fine, but he wasnt sure whether she has started fertility treatment. In 2000, doctors in Saudi Arabia transplanted a uter us from a live donor, but it had to be removed three months later because of a blood clot. Olausson said there could be a lower risk of organ rejection when the donor is a family member, but he said a more impor tant factor is the emotional connection between moth er and daughter. Also, the mother-daugh ter procedure makes it eas ier to know that the trans planted organ works, he said, adding that it doesnt matter whether the donor is past menopause. For a year, doctors will monitor how the two patients respond to the antirejection drugs needed to stop their immune systems from attacking the donated wombs. After a maximum of two pregnancies, the wombs will be removed so the women can stop taking the drugs, which can have side effects such as high blood pressure, swelling and dia betes and may also raise the risk of some types of cancer. Theres no doubt this will be a pioneering step if its been successful, said Scott Nelson, chairman of obstetrics and gynecol ogy at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. At present, the only option for these women is to have a surrogacy i.e., having their embryos implanted into another woman. Nelson said a donated womb would not contain all the blood vessels it origi nally had, possibly compro mising a babys develop ment. Pre-term birth is a major risk i.e., a small baby being born. Thats what youd mainly be wor ried about, he said. James Grifo, an infer tility expert at New York University, questioned how a fetus would be affected by the immune-suppress ing drugs. Some people will always be willing to take the risk, but there are issues that need to be addressed before you expose a fetus to these medicines, he said. Grifo and colleagues at NYU abandoned a uterus trans plant program because some issues seemed insur mountable. The group of patients that would need this is so small we decided to focus our efforts elsewhere, he said. We started in rats, but once we got to humans, it became very clear the rejection drug was going to be the issue, and we didnt know how to safely deal with that issue. In Sweden, Olausson said anti-rejection drugs have not proved harmful to fetuses when the moth er has undergone other organ transplants. Also, tests on mice, rats and pigs with transplanted wombs showed no ill effects from such drugs, he said. Swedish doctors claim pioneering uterus transplant ASSOCIATED PRESS From left specialist surgeons Andreas G Tzakis, Pernilla Dahm-Khler and Mats Brannstrom attend a news conference Tuesday at Sahlgrenska hospital in Goteborg Sweden. Two Swedish women are carrying the wombs of their mothers after what doctors called the worlds first mother-to-daughter uterus transplants. The specialists at the University of Goteborg com pleted the surgery over the weekend without complications, but say they wont consider the procedures successful unless the women achieve pregnancy after their observation period ends a year from now. By MIKE STOBBE AP Medical Writer NEW YORK We Americans already know how fat we are. Can it get much worse? Apparently, yes, accord ing to an advocacy group that predicts that by 2030 more than half the people in the vast majority of states will be obese. Mississippi is expected to retain its crown as the fattest state in the nation for at least two more decades. The report predicts 67 per cent of that states adults will be obese by 2030; that would be an astounding increase from Mississippis current 35 percent obesity rate. Florida, at a 27 percent obesity rate in 2011, is per dicted to reach 59 percent by 2030. The new projections were released Tuesday by Trust for Americas Health with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Trust for Americas Health regularly reports on obe sity to raise awareness, mostly relying on govern ment figures. The groups dismal fore cast goes beyond the 42 per cent national obesity level that federal health officials project by 2030. The group predicts every state would have rates above 44 per cent by that time, although it didnt calculate an overall national average. About two-thirds of Americans are overweight now. That includes those who are obese, a group that accounts for about 36 percent. Obesity rates have been holding steady in recent years. Obesity is defined as having a bodymass index of 30 or more, a measure of weight for height. Trust for Americas Health officials said their projections are based in part on state-by-state surveys by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from 1999 through 2010. The phone surveys ask res idents to self-report their height and weight; people arent always so accurate about that. The researchers then looked at other national data tracking residents weight and measurements and made adjustments for how much people in each state might fudge the truth about their weight. They also tried to apply recent trends in obesity rates, along with other fac tors, to make the predic tions. Officials with Trust for Americas Health said they believe their projections are reasonable. And New York Citys health commissioner agreed. If we dont do anything, I think thats a fair prediction, said Dr. Thomas Farley whose city banned just supersize sug ary drinks to curb obesity. Trust for America proj ects that by 2030, 13 states would have adult obesity rates above 60 percent, 39 states might have rates above 50 percent, and every state would have rates above 44 percent. Even in the thinnest state Colorado, where about one-fifth of residents are obese 45 percent would be obese by 2030. Perhaps more surpris ing, Delaware is expected to have obesity levels near ly as high as Mississippi. Delaware currently is in the middle of the pack when it comes to selfreported obesity rates. The report didnt detail why some states rates were expected to jump more than others. It also didnt calculate an average adult obesity rate for the entire nation in 2030, as the CDC did a few months ago. But a researcher who worked on the Trust for Americas Health study acknowledged that reports numbers point toward a figure close to 50 percent. CDC officials declined to comment on the new report. Whichever estimates you trust most, its clear that the nations weight problem is going to contin ue, escalating the number of cases of diabetes, heart disease and stroke, said Jeff Levi, executive direc tor of Trust for Americas Health. By 2030, medical costs from treating obesity-relat ed diseases are likely to increase by $48 billion, to $66 billion per year, his report said. The focus of so much of the ongoing debate about health care is over con trolling costs, Levi said. ... We can only achieve it by addressing obesity. Otherwise, were just tin kering around the mar gins. Group: More than half in 39 states will be obese Panhandle county reports West Nile death, 10 cases PENSACOLA A Florida Panhandle county says one person has died after becoming infected with West Nile virus. Dr. John Lanza of the Escambia County Health Department tells the Pensacola News Journal that the patient was a coun ty resident. There have been 10 cases of West Nile in Escambia this year. Neighboring Santa Rosa County on Tuesday con firmed its second case of West Nile. Health officials are warn ing residents to reduce their exposure to mos quitos, which can infect humans with the virus. Assoociated Press Czech PM wants liquor history on new bottles PRAGUE The Czech prime minister says any new hard liquor produced in the country needs to have a detailed certificate of origin a move that comes after at least 23 people who drank bootleg booze tainted with metha nol died. In response to the deaths, the government banned the sale of spirits with more than 20 percent alcohol content. But that ban has been criticized by many, including President Vaclav Klaus. Prime Minister Petr Necas said Wednesday the new measure will help liquor sales resume. Under his proposal, the new liquor would have a cer tificate showing its origin, production and distribution details. Liquors would also have new stamps and the sales would be licensed. In neighboring Poland, inspectors have seized 120,000 bottles of imported Czech alcohol and have submitted samples for laboratory tests, according to Jan Bodnar, a sanitary inspection spokesman.

For Life By MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press WASHINGTON The Food and Drug Administration may consider new stan dards for the levels of arsenic in rice as consumer groups are calling for federal guidance on how much of the carcinogen can be present in food. So far, FDA officials say they have found no evidence that suggests rice is unsafe to eat. The agency has studied the issue for decades but is in the middle of con ducting a new study of 1,200 samples of grocery-store rice products short and long-grain rice, adult and baby cereals, drinks and even rice cakes to measure arsenic levels. Arsenic is thought to be found in rice in higher levels than most other foods because it is grown in water on the ground, optimal conditions for the contaminant to be absorbed in the rice. There are no federal standards for how much arsenic is allowed in food. Arsenic is naturally present in water, air, food and soil in two forms, organic and inorganic. According to the FDA, organic arsenic passes through the body quick ly and is essentially harmless. Inorganic arsenic the type found in some pesti cides and insecticides can be toxic and may pose a cancer risk if consumed at high levels or over a long period. How much organic and inorganic arse nic rice eaters are consuming, and wheth er those levels are dangerous, still remains to be seen. FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg says consumers shouldnt stop eating rice, though she does encourage a diverse diet just in case. Our advice right now is that consumers should continue to eat a balanced diet that includes a wide variety of grains not only for good nutrition but also to minimize any potential consequences from consuming any one particular food, she said. The agency on Wednesday released 200 of an expected 1,200 samples after the magazine Consumer Reports released its own study and called for federal standards for arsenic in rice. The FDA will not com plete its study until the end of the year, Hamburg said, and cannot draw any con clusions from the results until then. Both studies show relatively similar lev els of arsenic in rice. The FDAs analysis, including 200 samples, showed average levels of 3.5 to 6.7 micrograms of inorganic arsenic per serving. Consumer Reports, with 223 samples, found levels up to 8.7 micrograms. A microgram is one billionth of a kilogram. It is almost impossible to say how danger ous these levels are without a benchmark from the federal government. Consumer Reports uses New Jerseys drinking water standard a maximum of 5 micrograms in a liter of water as comparison because it is one of the strictest in the country. But it is unclear how accurate it is to compare arsenic levels in water and arsenic levels in rice most people consume more water than rice, so drinking water standards may need to be tougher. It is because of this uncertainty that consumer groups have urged the FDA to set a standard. Urvashi Rangan of Consumer Reports says the group is not trying to alarm rice eaters and parents feeding their children rice, but to educate them so they can diversify their diets. Consumers should be more protected since arsenic is a known carcinogen, she said. It doesnt make sense not to have stan dards for rice, she said. The Consumer Reports study found higher levels of arsenic in brown rice than white rice, a result of how the two different types are processed. It also found higher levels in rice produced in southern U.S. states than in rice from California or Asia. Rice growers jumped on the report. A statement from the industry group USA Rice Federation said that U.S. rice growers do not use arsenical pesticides. We understand that arsenic is an alarming word, but we believe it is impor tant for consumers to know that arsenic is a naturally occurring element in our air, water, rocks and soil, the group said in a statement. This is how plants uptake arsenic. As a result, its always been in the food supply and is in many healthy foods that are consumed by billions of people every day. Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan joined with Consumer Reports Wednesday, also calling on FDA to set standards, par ticularly for baby food. She, like the maga zine, urged parents to limit the amount of rice they feed their children. The FDA was not willing to go that far, however. Hamburg cautioned that nei ther the FDA nor Consumer Reports had tested enough samples to be certain of any trend. These are very few samples and there is great variability in the levels, she said. Scientists have known for decades that arsenic is present in rice, but the issue has renewed interest as consumers are more interested than ever in what they eat and technology has advanced to the point that inorganic and organic arsenic can be mea sured separately. The consumer groups push on arsenic in rice comes a year after it pressured the FDA to define standards for arsenic in apple juice. Michael Taylor, the FDAs dep uty commissioner for foods, said Tuesday that the agency had completed an assess ment on apple juice and would be making recommendations soon. The levels of arse nic found in apple juice are low, he said. FDA urged to set standards for arsenic in rice ASSOCIATED PRESS A combine harvests rice near Tucker, Ark. Consumer groups are pressuring the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to set federal guidance on allowable levels of arsenic in rice, prompt ing the agency to consider possible new standards.

After a surprise panda birth in DC, anxiety awaits By JESSICA GRESKO Associated Press WASHINGTON The birth of a panda cub this weekend at Washingtons zoo was cause for a party, but behind the excitement theres also some nail-bit ing. Panda cubs are born hairless and helpless, about the size of a stick of butter. The tiny cubs are at risk for infections and so small that its not unheard of for panda moms to accidentally crush their young. For the National Zoo, which has only had one panda cub survive, the memories of past tragedies are real. This first week we are at 100 percent atten tion, watching to make sure shes taking care of her cub, said giant panda curator Brandie Smith of panda mom Mei Xiang. Every week that passes we become a little more confident the cub is going to survive. The zoos first panda cou ple, Ling Ling and Hsing Hsing, who arrived from China in 1972, had five cubs during the 1980s, but none lived more than a few days. One of the cubs was stillborn, two others died of pneumonia within a day, another died from lack of oxygen after birth, and the final cub died of an infec tion after four days. Another danger comes down to size. Panda moth ers are about 1,000 times heavier than their cubs, which are particularly vul nerable at birth. The hair less cubs weigh between three and five ounces, and they are born with their eyes closed. The delicate cubs have died in the past when accidentally crushed by mom. That happened in two different zoos in China in 2009 and 2010 when mothers killed their young. There are more routine concerns, too. Panda moms have to ensure their cubs stay warm and are getting enough to eat. Its kind of a nervewracking period for the folks that are monitor ing mom and cub, said Rebecca Snyder, the cura tor of mammals at Atlantas zoo, one of only two other American zoos to have had cubs. Atlanta has had three cubs, and the San Diego zoo has had six, including a cub born this year. A panda couple in Memphis has yet to have a cub, despite sev eral tries. No other U.S. zoos have pandas. Still, keepers and offi cials at the Smithsonians National Zoo in Washington are hopeful. Officials said Monday that the cubs cries, which sound like high-pitched squeals and grunts, are strong. And panda mom Mei Xiang is also now an experienced mother. Mei Xiang gave birth to her first cub, Tai Shan, in 2005. Laurie Thompson, one of the zoos half a dozen panda keepers, says that in 2005 it took the new mother a few minutes to pick up the cub. This time, it was more immediate. The new cub also seems to be a little quieter than its older brother, an indication perhaps that Mei Xiang is meeting the cubs needs more quickly. At this point, though, zoo keepers have yet to exam ine the cub. Instead, they are trusting Mei Xiangs mothering and watching the pair on video cameras, the same way the rest of Washington is watching through an online pan dacam. The zoos web site recorded more than 237,000 visits Monday, the day after the pandas birth. Zoo officials wont have a chance to examine the cub in person for several weeks, when Mei Xiang starts ven turing out from the nest she has built. While theyre waiting to meet the zoos newest addition, zoo researchers are going to be studying the pregnancy closely. Mei Xiang was artificially insem inated each year beginning in 2007 but failed to con ceive five times. Scientists at the zoo worried she had become infertile and believed there was a less than a 10 percent chance she would become preg nant. ASSOCIATED PRESS In this file photo taken Wednesday, July 11, 2012, a hand holds the younger of a pair of twin giant panda cubs born at the panda research center in Wolong in southwest Chinas Sichuan province. The birth of a panda cub this weekend at Washingtons zoo was cause for celebra tion. But behind the joy theres also concern.

Q From staff reportsWill thunder strike twice?By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Fort White Highs football game against Wakulla High last year was delayed by weath-er. It ended with a lightning strike of another kind. Fort White travels to Crawfordville to take on the War Eagles at 7:30 p.m. Friday. After Wakulla scored on a 40-yard touchdown run with 1:38 to take a 21-17 lead last year, the Indians executed a hook-and-lateral play to perfection and scored with 12 seconds on the clock to pull out a 23-21 win over the Class 5A team. Andrew Baker threw to A.J. Legree, who flipped the ball to Soron Williams who took off for 60 yards to complete the touchdown play. Fort White led the game, 10-0, on a touchdown run by Williams and a field goal by Colton Jones. The War Eagles went ahead 14-10, then Fort Whites Jomar Gainer scored on a 67-yard punt return to set up the final fireworks. The shocker dropped Wakulla to 2-2 and the War Eagles did not lose another game until the 5A champi-onship final. Wakulla ended the season 12-3. Coach Scott Klees has had the War Eagles in the playoffs five of six years starting in 2006, but last year was the first time Wakulla made it past the first round. The War Eagles beat Gulf Breeze High and the District 1 runner-up, then eliminated Ponte Vedre High and Pasco High before losing to Miami Norland High. Wakulla, ranked No. 3 in 5A, may be ready for another playoff run this year. The War Eagles are 3-0, winning their games by a combined score of 123-37. That includes last weeks 38-7 whipping of Class 2A powerhouse North Florida Christian School. Against North Florida Christian, Wakulla quarter-back Caleb Stephens, who threw five passes against Fort White last year, was 9-of-14 for 178 yards and touchdowns of 30 yards to Keith Gavin and 37 yards to Dalton Norman. Gavin had three catches for 94 yards and Norman had two catches for 45 yards. Jordan Franks had an 18-yard TD reception from Feleipe Franks. Monterious Loggins and Shelton Johnson had touch-down runs. Demetrius Lindsey, Dillon Norman and Loggins all rushed for more than 50 yards. In Wakullas 41-20 win over Taylor County High, Stephens threw for 209 yards with two touchdown passes to Franks. Stephens also ran for a score Lindsey ran for 130 yards and a touchdown. Fred Cummings had a touchdown run and Mikal Cromartie returned an interception 65 yards for a touchdown. Dequan Simmons had 16 tackles and Bryce Beverly had four sacks. Kevin James and Cummings combined for three sacks. In the War Eagles 4410 win over Mosley High, Franks had two more touchdown catches and Lindsay scored on a 45-yard run. Cromartie returned an interception 52 yards to set up another score. Last year was the first meeting between Wakulla and Fort White. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort White Highs Tavaris Williams (2) dashes out of the way of would-be tacklers while playing against Taylor County on Friday. CHS playing road warriorsBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comWhile Columbia Highs game against Gainesville High may have received the most hype in the pre-season, Fridays game against Oakleaf High car-ries much more weight in the Tigers season. While Oakleaf is only in its fifth season as a pro-gram, the Knights (1-1) have shown signs of being a much improved football this season under Derek Chipoletti. In week one, the Knights fell in a hard-fought con-test against Forest High, 20-13, but bounced back to the tune of a 30-17 win against Clay County High last week. For Columbia head coach Brian Allen, this is the most important game of the sea-son so far for the Tigers. Anytime you have the chance to establish your-self in the district, its a big game, Allen said. To me, its bigger than the GHS game for the simple fact that we didnt win the dis-trict last year. We want to go out and solidify ourselves. Were going to approach it like its a championship game, just as we will in all our district games. This will be the Tigers third-consecutive week on the road, but Allen isnt looking at it as a burden. We have five road games and weve already dropped one, Allen said. Were just going in with the goal that we want to be 4-1 when its over. Were going to handle business at home and have the mindset to finish with a 4-1 record on the road. Allen went as far to say that it hasnt felt like road JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Ronald Timmons breaks into open field against Buchholz High in the Tigers 55-14 win on Fri day.

R Willie Barcena: I Gotta Be HonestGigolos (N) Polyamory: Married CHS: Becoming a mature group Continued From Page 1B games so far this season. As a staff, its been a real pleasure to go on the road and feel like were at a home game, Allen said. Thats a real team builder to have the fans there. Allen went on to say that hes had more excitement for this season than hes had in a long time. Im more excited than I was when I was playing, he said. Its had a great impact and you can really feel the community behind this program. With the road trip winding down, Allen said that it could have a big impact on the rest of the season. Its going to help us down the road, Allen said. Well have that experience of playing these back-to-back games on the road, so well be prepared for that. Its always electric with our fans behind us, so I expect us to play and play well. Hopefully well have things taken care of for the play-offs and depending on how the bracket plays out, well have a home playoff game in front of our family with the full support of the com-munity. Part of the Tigers success this season on the road has been to the level of maturity of this years squad. Were a more mature group not only as a foot-ball team, but with dealing with adversity, Allen said. Right now, were dealing with the adversity of play-ing on the road four weeks in a row. Were focused and prepared for that. Theres still mistakes, but the group is mature and handling the task. Allen pointed to many of his team leaders with taking on added roles this season. You look at a defensive guy like Felix Woods, who is not only a leader on the field, but hes increasing his vocal leadership, Allen said. Roc Battle came over to this side and has been a tremendous asset. Terry Calloway has played out-standing and it shows that players are feeding off of them. On the offensive side, the leadership starts with quarterback Jayce Barber. Even though Jayce struggled against GHS, you look at the way he bounced back in practice, Allen said. But we have other guys like Antonio Pelham that have stepped up. He wasnt one of the guys that were looked at to be counted on at the beginning of the year, but hes transformed into a leader. You just look at how he got his bell rung against GHS and hung onto the ball for a big first down. He hopped right up and got the crowd pumped. Columbia takes on Oakleaf at 7 p.m. Friday. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High coach Brian Allen communicates with the Tigers during a break in the action against Buchholz High on Friday.Florida could be without DE Easley vs KentuckyAssociated PressGAINESVILLE No. 14 Florida could be without defensive end Dominique Easley against Kentucky on Saturday. Easley spent time on crutches this week, hoping to reduce swelling around his left knee. Coach Will Muschamp says Easley is moving around OK, but called him questionable for Saturdays game against the Wildcats. Easley has eight tackles and a sack this season. If he cant play, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn says senior Earl Okine or freshman Jonathan Bullard would start. Muschamp also says linebacker Jelani Jenkins will have the pin removed from his broken right thumb next week. Jenkins will start lift-ing and running today, and the Gators hope he will be able to return to action Oct. 6 against LSU likely wearing a protective club.
DEAR ABBY: I have to respond to your reply to Tammis Mom in N.J. (June 21), whose daughter wont answer her texts at college. Our daughter, Jill, attended college 12 hours from home. She would text me almost every day -short, sweet messages always ending with Luv U, XOXO. I looked forward to those texts because they were a lifeline to my daughter. Tammis Mom is coping with empty nest syndrome, which no child can under-stand until she experi-ences it one day herself. Thankfully, Jill knew how much her texts meant to me. They got me through four long years without her. I hope Tammi sees this and appreciates that she has a mom who isnt smothering her, but who loves and cares about her. -REMEMBERING IN JOHNSTOWN, PA. DEAR REMEMBERING: Thank you for sharing. I stressed to Tammis Mom that her daughter is growing up and trying to establish independence. However, readers were quick to point out that Tammi still owes her mother the cour-tesy of keeping in touch: DEAR ABBY: When I was away at college, many students expected their parents to pay their tuition and living expenses, but stay out of their lives. Tammis Mom said shed be happy with a call or text every two or three days. I dont think that is unrea-sonable. I have lived several hundred miles away from my family for 10 years now. I enjoy a great deal of independence, but I know it worries my parents to have me so far away. I call them every day or two. These quick phone calls (usually only five minutes) help them see that Im safe and happy, and also allow me to remain emotionally close to my family, even though Im not geographi-cally close. Abby, asking for a quick text, which takes only a few moments, is NOT helicopter parenting. -INDEPENDENT GIRL IN ARIZONA DEAR ABBY: To Tammis Mom, I say -its time to get a life! Do things now that youve always wanted to do. If youre married, find things in common again. Sometimes when we raise our kids, we can become consumed with their wants and needs, and our marriages suffer. Take up a new hobby and let your baby bird spread her wings. Shell thank you for it and will WANT to call you when you stop calling or tex-ting every day. If you get yourself busy, youll spend less time sitting by the phone. -KNOWS FROM EXPERIENCE DEAR ABBY: Until recently, I had two chil-dren in college -one close to home, the other several hours away. Unfortunately, there is so much violence every-where today and kids are vulnerable to it, especially around many colleges and universities. Kids send hundreds of text messages a day to their friends. I dont think its too much to ask for an occasional text from your child to make sure he or she is indeed safe. -BILL IN BLOOMSBURY, N.J. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take what belongs to you. Show your strengths and indulge in the activi-ties and events you know will lead to advancement. Flirt with change, and address issues that you need to put an end to in order to move forward. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Dont get angry if you need to resolve a pend-ing problem. Diplomacy and practicality will be the answer to taking care of business. Dont make unnecessary personal changes or indulge in activities that havent worked for you in the past. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Make positive chang-es at home and to impor-tant relationships. Give a concise rundown of what you want to do or see hap-pen and how you feel oth-ers can contribute. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Engage in an activity, event or project you enjoy. The more creative you are allowed to be, the better the outcome. Less talk and more action will make a positive difference to the way you are treated. Deal with responsibilities com-passionately. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It will be difficult to get things done. Personal interference can be expected. Discuss your plans openly and face opposition head-on so you can move forward. An emotional issue must not be allowed to fester. Make a decision and dont look back. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take on whatever challenge comes your way and you will surprise who-ever tries to tackle you. Your intensity, determina-tion and skill will ensure that you are a candidate for any encounter you pursue. Believe in your abilities, but dont boast. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Slow down and deal with an individual or situa-tion cautiously. An unpre-dictable set of circum-stances must be met with insight and practicality. Dont let anyone cost you financially or emotionally. An empty promise will set you back. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Enjoy the moment. Indulge in creative projects or pastimes. Focus on you and your personal goals. Embrace and enhance your relationships with others. Reflect on your beliefs, and make adjust-ments that suit your cur-rent situation and future. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Creative accounting will help you solve a financial problem. Dont count on someone to do the work for you. Be responsible for your posi-tion and lot in life, and do whatever it takes to make changes that will send you in a positive direction. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will be attracted to organizations that offer clout or help reaching your goals. Dont feel you must make a large donation in order to impress the people around you. Hands-on help will show your leadership abil-ity and help seal a deal. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Caution will be required while communi-cating or disagreeing with anyone in a position of authority. Focus on money and being responsible with the way you spend and invest. Favorable changes at home are apparent if you recycle and reuse. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Re-evaluate the past and you will get a better idea of the direction you should head now. Money matters should be your prime concern. Dont allow someone who is unpredict-able or excessive to alter your plans or encourage a poor choice. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

RUSSO Associated Press Raised stakes and con tempt bred by familiarity. Conference play is differ ent, and at this point it becomes the focus of the college football season. The Big 12 starts Saturday with a show down in Oklahoma, as the sixth-ranked Sooners face No. 15 Kansas State. In the Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 4 Florida State and No. 10 Clemson will go a long way toward deciding a division title in Tallahassee. The Sooners and Wildcats bring contrasting offensive styles to Norman. Oklahoma plays up-tempo and tends to air it out with quarterback Landry Jones. K-States star quarterback Collin Klein is battering ram who leads a deliberate, run-first attack. Last year, the Wildcats were 7-0 when Oklahoma came to Manhattan, Kan., and the Sooners turned what was billed as a big game into a laugher. Jones passed for a schoolrecord 505 yards in a 5817 victory, in which the Sooners outscored the Wildcats 35-0 in the second half. Kansas States pass defense is shaky again, ranking at the bottom of the Big 12. The Wildcats best defense might be Klein and tailback John Hubert churning out yards on the ground and keeping Jones on the bench. Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops is 7-1 against his former boss, Kansas States Bill Snyder. In Tallahassee, the Seminoles are coming off a 52-0 victory against Wake Forest that looked about as easy as the Savannah State game the weekend before. Theyll be looking for a little payback against the Tigers. Clemson beat the Noles 35-30 last season and went on to win the Atlantic Division, and eventually the ACC title. Clemsons ability to keep Florida States talent ed defensive ends Bjoern Werner and Cornellius Carradine away from quar terback Tajh Boyd will be key. Lots can happen, but itd be a big surprise if the win ner Saturday night in Doak Campbell Stadium wasnt playing in the ACC title game. In the Pac-12, the mar quee game is in Eugene, Ore., and its for fans of fast-break football. Rich Rodriguez, one of the godfa thers of the fast-pace spread offense craze, against Chip Kelly, who has revved up the spread to warp speed with the Ducks. No. 3 Oregon has been unchallenged through three games, with DAnthony Thomas racking up big plays. No. 22 Arizona is off to an encouraging start with Rodriguez, but the Wildcats will get a better idea of where they stand Saturday night.

ASSOCIATED PRESS Florida States Chris Thompson runs for a touchdown as Kenny Shaw blocks Wake Forests Chibuikern Okoro in the second quarter of an NCAA college football game on Saturday in Tallahassee. Florida State won 52-0. ACCs unbeatens tangle, rest of league struggling By BRENT KALLESTAD Associated Press TALLAHASSEE While the college football spot light shines squarely on the Atlantic Coast Conference this week with Clemson visiting Florida State, most ACC teams are still seeking respectability. When the No. 10 Tigers meet the fourth-ranked Seminoles in Tallahassee it will be the first matchup of top 10 ACC schools in five years. Clemson (3-0, 0-0) and Florida State (3-0, 1-0) are the leagues only remaining unbeaten teams just three weeks into the season. Duke coach David Cutcliffe said its an impor tant game for the ACC, a league craving for more respect from its football peers. Its good to have a mar quee game in the confer ence, Cutcliffe said. Its good for the conference. The last time two ACC teams played that were both ranked in the top 10 was in 2007 when a Boston College team led by quarterback Matt Ryan and ranked sec ond nationally, defeated No. 8 Virginia Tech 14-10. Its a conference that has sent more players to the NFL than any other in recent years, but hasnt boasted a national champion since Florida State in 1999. The ACCs probably taken a little more heat than we should because we havent had a team that could make a run at a national championship, Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe said Wednesday.
