Associated Press 2 plead to extorting icon Stevie Wonder LOS ANGELES T wo people charged with trying to extort millions of dollars from Stevie Wonder pleaded no con test on Monday and were released after being sentenced to time-served in jail. Alpha Lorenzo Walker and Tamara Diaz were sentenced to serve 292 days in jail and three years of proba tion for attempting to sell a video that purportedly portrayed Wonder in a negative light. Jail credits made the pair eligible for release Monday. The pair was arrested in May after the Grammy-winners attorney arranged a sting and claimed Walker had sought up to $5 million for the video. Walkers attorney, Ian Wallach, said the deal was reached after pros ecutors encountered trouble prov ing the extortion case and that the charges were eligible to be reduced to misdemeanors and expunged later if the pair comply with the terms of their release. A judge ordered the pair to stand trial in July after a preliminary hearing in which a police detective described the video as an 80-minute rant against Wonder. Portions of it were filmed in the former home of the singers late mother, which is now dilapidated, and it also shows Wonders son, whom the musician is protective of. Wallach had maintained his client was innocent and that he had a con stitutional right to make and market the video. Diaz is Walkers girlfriend and was present during a police sting that involved Wonders attorney and led to the pairs arrest.

The index, based on a survey conducted by the University of Florida, is up three points in September to 79 on a scale of 2 to 150. Its benchmark was 100 points in 1966. Supporters of Democratic President Barack Obama are much more optimistic than those backing Republican chal lenger Mitt Romney, said Chris McCarty, director of survey research for the universitys Bureau of Economic and Business Research on the Gainesville campus. At least one Romney supporter, though, is upbeat about the economy. Republican Gov. Rick Scott said in a statement that the survey is more good news and evidence that our state is moving in the right direction. McCarty said political ideology could become an even more crucial factor for consumer confidence in October as the election draws even closer. Whether Floridians react negatively or posi tively remains to be seen, but it will largely deter mine consumer confidence as we get close to the holiday shopping season, McCarty said. He said the Oct. 3 presi dential debate on domestic policy could cause confi dence to decline again. Thats because the candi dates likely will be ques tioned about whats been termed a fiscal cliff fac ing the nation in January if Congress fails to renew temporary tax cuts and allows automatic spend ing reductions to go into effect. Septembers index is the highest since October 2007. At that time confidence was on its way down as the housing crisis was get ting under way, McCarty said. This months index comes at a time when the economy is still in recov ery. Florida is facing several economic drags, includ ing job losses in govern ment and construction that helped keep the states unemployment rate unchanged at 8.8 percent in August. But theres also reason for optimism. That includes rises in housing prices and the stock market. The university surveyed 419 people representing a demographic cross-section of Florida from Sept. 12 through Sept. 20. The survey showed increases in all five com ponents used to compile the index. That includes whether Floridians think they are better off than they were a year ago. Other components are the expectation their per sonal finances will improve in the next year, overall faith in the U.S. economy over the next year and the next five years and the belief that now is a good time to buy big-ticket items such as cars and applianc es. Consumer confidence hits 5-year high TALLAHASSEE The state is sending out forms to 167,398 Florida borrow ers who lost their homes in foreclosures to apply for compensation from a $25 billion national settlement with five major lenders. Attorney General Pam Bondi said on Monday that they will have until Jan. 18, 2013 to submit claims. Those eligible lost their homes to foreclosure between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2011.

A crowd of barely 60 showed up to hear school board and superintendent candidates field questions from teachers union representatives Monday night at the district office. One might have thought the place would be packed, especially considering what’s at stake – and how hard fought the race for superin-tendent has been. The questions were detailed and precise, in par-ticular a query concerning teacher evaluations. That’s a hot-button issue to be sure, especially in the wake of SB 736, the teacher merit pay law that ties educators’ salaries in equal parts to standardized test scores and classroom performance. Regardless, there weren’t many educators on hand to hear the question or the can-didates’ responses. That’s not to say local educators lack interest or con-cern, however. The candidates have worked hard to take their respective messages to the voters, teachers included. Maybe those not in attendance knew their stands on the issues in advance and had already made up their minds. • • •Now to correct an oversight from last week’s column. In praising the Lifeguard paramedics who responded to my August 4 heart attack here in the newsroom, I man-aged to overlook two individu-als every bit as important: Gramby Croft and Trevor Caslin of the Lake City Fire Department, who arrived even before the ambulance. Elapsed time from dialing 911 till their arrival: a minute and fifty-seven seconds. You have my everlasting thanks, gentlemen. Sorry I missed you the first time, but a good part of that morning was a little fuzzy to say the least. Thanks as well to sports editor Tim Kirby and reporter Tony Britt, who provided much-needed moral support during the longest two min-utes of my life. Tiny crowd attends schoolforum ONE OPINION S itting in the lobby of the dermatolo-gist’s office, waiting for my name to be called, I passed the time glancing discreetly (I hope) around the room checking out the other wait-ing patients. A teenage boy with bad skin. Acne treatment? A middle-aged woman with a furrowed brow. Botox? An older man slumped in a chair reading Sports Illustrated. Who knew? Who were they? Why were they there? What were their stories? Everyone has a story. Most people will tell you theirs if you ask them -or, sometimes, even if you don’t. Here’s mine. About six months ago, I came into this office to have a mole removed from the side of my face. It was just a little dot, had been there for-ever, didn’t bother me at all. But it had gotten darker over time, and while change is good in some things, it is not so good for moles. The good news, thankfully, is that I had it removed before it became life-threat-ening. The bad news was that the dermatologist said I had to come back periodically for something called a “full body” check. Full body? At first, I thought it was a reference to weight. But I realized rather quickly that, no, it meant, like, areas. As in all of them. More or less. I don’t know about you, but this was not something I wanted to even think about, let alone actually do. However, I have watched cancer in its various forms ravage and take the lives of far too many people, includ-ing my mother and my first husband. Modesty aside, I didn’t want to take chances. God forbid my tombstone should read, “Here lies Sharon. If only she’d had a full body check.” Turns out, it wasn’t bad at all. If you’ve never had one, I highly recommend it. I was given a paper robe and sheet to help preserve my dignity, and the physician’s assistant who performed the check took time to explain the pro-cess, answer questions and put me at ease. Best of all, he found nothing to be concerned about -except for one tiny spot on my neck. “How long has this been here?” he asked. My heart began to pound.“I don’t know,” I said. “I, uh, I can’t really see it.” He marked it with a pen and said something to the nurse, who quickly noted it in my chart. “We’ll need to look at this more closely,” he said. Somehow I stopped listening to what he was saying. My mind filled with the faces of my children and grandchildren, and the memory of how happy my husband had looked a few days ago as he filled the bird feeders in the backyard. “Are you sure you don’t know how long you’ve had this?” “What?” I said. “Oh, wait!” Suddenly, I remembered. I was in second grade waiting in line to sharpen my pencil. Victor Mathis cranked the sharpener one final crank, then turned to me and, ever so lightly, as if dotting an “i,” jabbed the tip of his pencil in my neck. It had been years since I last saw Victor. I heard last month he had recently passed away. But he’d left his mark on me. When I told that story to the physician’s assistant, he laughed and used an alcohol wipe to remove the ink mark he’d made on my neck. The lead from Victor’s pencil would remain. And just like that -hallelujah -I was free and clear to put on my clothes and go back to my life. Walking out through the lobby, I noticed that the people who’d been waiting with me earlier had all been replaced by another group of waiters. Who were they? Why were they there? I would never know their stories. But I prayed theirs would end as happily as mine. A hallelujah moment at the dermatologist’s office LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor: I would like to share something from the Reagan republi-can era, that fits Mitt Romney. Republican 23rd PsalmIf Romney is my shepherd, I shall always want. He makes me sleep on park benches; he leads me beside outsourced closed factories. He restores my doubts in the Republican Party. He guides me to the path of unemployment for the party’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of soup kitchens, I am still hungry and have no hope because of the trickle-down theory. I, the poor, do fear your evil, for you are against me. You anoint my income with taxes, because I am not rich and my expenses run over. Surely poverty and hard living will follow me all the days of the Republican Party, and I shall live in unaffordable housing forever. My thoughts on the subject is how do the poor or middle class get to these so-called safety nets Romney talks about? Republican administrations in the past rob-ber Social Security illegally to pay for two wars and now want to blame Obama. If the Reublicans would let Pres. Obama pass some things he has brought to the table, instead of making him a lame duck, such as T.J.T.C., Targeted Jobs Tax Credit, then maybe they can be seen in a different light. When they point their fingers at the current president, they need to remember there are four fingers pointed back at them. Wake up, America. Your vote does count. The government is supposed to work for the peo-ple, not the other way around. Are you really going to vote for a man that wears magic underwear? Somebody who will not release his tax returns like everybody else in the history of the U.S.? I hope not.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com E conomists have been saying there will be no meaning-ful recovery until the housing market recovers. Finally that seems to be happening.Standard & Poor’s authoritative Case/Schiller index shows home prices nationally increased 1.2 percent in July over the same month last year. As the Associated Press noted, that’s the second straight year-over-year gain after two years without one. Prices rose from June to July in the 20 cities tracked by the index. Again as the AP notes, that’s the third straight month in which prices rose in every city. In the 12 months ending in July, prices went up in 16 of the 20 cities, including by 16.6 percent in hard-hit Phoenix. Only Atlanta, Chicago, New York and Las Vegas were left behind. The recovery, and indeed it does seem to be a real recovery, is attributed to small but steady increases in home prices, fewer foreclosures and record low mortgage rates. The average rate of a 30year fixed mortgage has been below 4 percent all year. And now that the Fed has announced plans to boost the recovery by buying $40 billion of mortgage-backed securi-ties each month the rates are likely to stay low. Other measures also indicate a recovery: sales of pre-viously occupied homes in August were the highest since May 2010, and builder confi-dence is at a six-year high. Home prices are still 30 percent below their June 2006, peak but these latest figures are good news for both the health of the housing market and of the broader economy.

Charles Larkin Cowart, 29, was arrested Monday afternoon in the city of Bunnell, about 60 miles south of Jacksonville. A police officer was responding to a report of an intoxicated male riding a horse when he turned on his emergency lights to stop traffic as Cowart crossed the street, accord ing to the charging affi davit. Cowart said he was on his way to his grand mothers house in nearby Flagler Beach, but refused officers order to dismount and in an aggressive man ner reared the horse back and took off running. Officers did not immedi ately chase after him, the report said, citing the pub lic and the horses safety. Cowart continued to ride through town, causing a crowd of people to come out of their homes and a train to slow down as Cowart crossed over a set of railroad tracks. Police kept their emergency lights on, but did not use their sirens to prevent the horse from being frightened and potentially making the sit uation worse. Cowart ignored several verbal commands to get off the horse, which after more half an hour, became exhausted. Cowart eventu ally jumped off and took off running. He was captured a short time later. The horse returned to Cowarts fam ily and is doing fine, police said. Cowart was booked into the Flagler County Jail on charges that included dis orderly conduct, resisting arrest without violence and cruelty to animals. He was being held Tuesday on $7,000 bond. A message was left Tuesday at a phone list ing for Cowart in Bunnell, about 60 miles south of Jacksonville. It was not immediately known if he has an attorney. Cowart was arrested for petit theft on Sept. 9 and on a DUI charge in October 2010. The disposition of those charges wasnt imme diately known.

Employees at the 5-yearold facility, which has seen its ranks dwindle from a peak of 1,300, were told Monday that the plant would close as of Dec. 31 and its work transitioned to Sikorskys West Palm Beach, Fla., facility. Faced with these diffi cult economic conditions, we must eliminate excess production capacity and increase operational effi ciencies to remain competi tive, said Paul Jackson, spokesman for the Stratford, Conn.-based subsidiary of United Technologies Corp.

with monitoring to deter mine the amounts of water and the quality of the water, it doesnt matter whether its surface water or ground water, both of them are cov ered, she said.

Officials noted the 43 percent of the budget ear marked for water resourc es is an increased amount compared to last years budget. Water resources is our core mission, she said. We are the water manage ment district and we are pretty dead-eyed focused on water-related missions, including water supply and water resources. One of the key projects noted in the Districts 2013 fiscal budget is the Bell Springs Restoration proj ect, located in Columbia County, which is a partner ship with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to remove dams within a spring run on district lands. The FWC is investing $55,000 through a grant to the district to improve natural systems by restoring flows of water through the spring run and downstream to the adjacent Suwannee River. For the first time, the district has developed an annual operations budget, which it said is consis tent with the other water management districts and allows for improved track ing of costs and perfor mance evaluations. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 26, 2012 6A 3076 95th Drive Live Oak, FL 32060 www.

LSHA adopts $8.6M budget By LAURA HAMPSON lhampson@lakecityreporter.com Lake Shore Hospital Authority tax rates will remain the same for 2012-13. Board members passed a 0.962 millage rate and a $8.61 million budget Monday night during their final budget hearing. The hospital cut the rate from 1.5 mills two years ago as a tax break during the recession, said Jack Berry, authority man ager. The authoritys taxes are used to pay for indigent care and the hospital lease agreement. The hospital authority will have to trans fer $1.17 million from cash reserves to meet their budget this year. One mill equals $1 for every $1,000 of taxable value. A homeowner with $100,000 in taxable value will pay $96.20 again this year. The same homeowner would have paid $150 with the increase. Ad valorem taxes will generate $2.1 million, about $113,350 less than 2011-12, according to the budget. A 1.5 mill rate would have generated $3.3 million. The authority will have $3.7 million in cash reserves after this year, according to the proposed budget. With a 1.5 mill rate, there would have been $4.9 million in cash reserves. Berry recommended the 1.5 mill rate to the board. At some point the rate will have to be restored, its just a question of when, he said.

After school board denial, the applicant can appeal to the state, which uses the same 19 criteria to review the charter application, Carswell said. Coker said the application addressed specific concerns the district brought up in an earlier review and the 19 criteria are not cut and dried. However, the charter is proposing a curricu lum and strategy that it different and new, she said. They are looking for a model that mirrors the school system, Coker said. Instead of a principal and assistant principals, the school is proposing an executive director, dean of instruction and dean of administration, she said. The schools case worker would handle things traditionally done by a guid ance counselor. Coker said she and the schools governing board will appeal to the state. The stu dents need it, she said. In other business: The board adopted a new policy for academic accel eration, reflecting new state guidelines. The policy outlines the process for promotion acceleration, which before the state had left up to district, said Superintendent Michael Millikin. Each school will establish an Accelerated Evaluation Committee to review students referred for accelerated learn ing, which includes early high school graduation, mid-year promotion, and advanced aca demic courses, according to the policy. Advancing Via Individual Determination, a college readiness program targeting middle-performing students, is now offered in all the dis tricts middle schools and high schools, said Kitty McElhaney, district director of curriculum, assessment and accountability. Last year, the program was implemented in ninth grade at Columbia High School, she said during a presentation to the board. Started over 30 years ago, AVID teaches students writ ing, reading, critical thinking and organizational skills, she said. It aims to close the edu cational gap for children who will be first generation college students with rigorous course work, she said.

That’s exactly how it played out last year against the Knights, however, as Columbia High was forced to rally from a 2-17 halftme deficit to beat Vanguard 22-21. Columbia’s only first-half score came when former Tiger Darius Williams returned a kickoff 94 yards for a score. The Tigers’ defense proved tough in the second half, however, holding the Knights to only one first down. After an interception set the Tigers up at the 12-yard line, Jayce Barber scored on a quarterback run. A safety cut the lead to 21-16, but the Tigers still trailed after taking posses-sion with 4:36 reaining int he contest. Facing a third-and-six situation, Barber again used his legs and turned it up field for 31 yards and a game-winning score. “I knew I wasn’t throwing the ball well,” Barber said after the game. “I knew I had to make a play with my feet. I saw the defense break down and I took advantage. I had two or three guys blocking downfield and I just weaved my way into the end zone. It was a matter of my guys making good blocks.” It was a theme for the season for the Tigers as Columbia came back in the second half during many of its games. This year, Columbia has started fast, but cruised during the second half of many games. Columbia head coach Brian Allen said after the 19-13 win against Oakleaf on Friday that was some-thing the Tigers were look-ing to change. “Last year, we were playing really strong in the second half,” he said. “We have to get back to playing like we were a year ago and continue to play like we have in the first half this year. Maybe the situation is a little different because we are playing ahead, but we can’t take our foot off the gas.” Fantastic finish pushed Tigers to 22-21 victory.Lady Tigers take two, boys splitFrom staff reportsColumbia High had a dual meet at Ridgeview High on Thursday with the boys splitting the meet that also included Baker County High and the girls taking wins in both matches.

The Sunday scramble had the team of Chet Carter, Gillian Norris and Ralph Minster in first at 5 under. The new Pot was won by the team of C.J. Proveaux, Dave Zeman and Richard Bass for their skin with an eagle on Creeks No. 9. A new pot will start Sunday. The Sunday scramble is open to all golfers — male or female, low or high handicap. Sign up by 2:30 p.m. and teams are picked at 3 p.m. The Good Old Boys put two close, three-way matches into the books last week. Match one was an 8-7 victory for the team of Jim Bell, Dave Cannon and Joe Persons over the team of Ed Snow, Bill Rogers and Dan Stephens. The three-some of Eli Witt, Howard Whitaker and Carl Wilson faded late for a third-place finish. The team of Monty Montgomery, Tony Branch, Bobby Simmons and Bill Wheeler claimed match two by a 5-4 count over the team of Dennis Hendershot, Jim McGriff, Paul Davis and Hugh Sherrill. The four-some of Marc Risk, Mike Spencer, Emerson Darst and Stan Woolbert kept it close and finished another stroke back. Risk led individual scoring with a round of 38-35-73. Montgomery was two shots back with 38-37-75. Snow was another stroke back with 76. Other scores of note came from Hendershot with 78 and Stephens with 79. Most of the nine hole competition came on the front side. Woolbert pulled out the win with a 37, one better than Bell’s 38. Witt, Spenser and Cannon all finished with 39. Whitaker and Persons tied the back side with 39. Joe Paul +7, tallied a late birdie to edge Tim Dortch, Scott Kishton and Mickey Willcox, all at +6, in the Sunday blitz. Over half the field scored skins. Steve Patterson and Terry Hunter led the parade with two each. Other skins went to Bob Randall, Steve Thomas, John Raulerson, Willcox, Dortch, Paul and Kishton. Closest to the pin winners were Patterson on No. 15, Dortch on Nos. 17 and 3 and Cory DePratter on No. 7. Jonathan Allen’s firstplace finish in the A flight of the Wednesday blitz was the day’s only solo win. Buddy Slay and Mickey Willcox tied for second in A flight. B flight ended in a tie for first place between Bob Wheary and Eddy Brown at +4. Second place was also a tie for Shelton Keen and John Raulerson at +2. Jordan Hale had control of the skins game with three winners. Wheary, Brown and Randall had the other keepers. Both pot holes went unclaimed. Cory DePratter ran in four birdies to gain a first-place tie at +9 with Randy Sommers in Saturday’s blitz. Mike Carr took sec-ond with +7, two points bet-ter than Eli Witt in fourth place. Bruce Gibson, Scott Kishton and Dave Mehl finished in a tie for fifth. The skins pot was split five ways among David Rhodes, Robbie Kerby, DePratter, Mehl and Carr.

(AP) — Entire stadiums have booed them. The Patriots’ Bill Belichick grabbed one by the arm and the Redskins’ Kyle Shanahan was so hopping mad he fol-lowed one into the tunnel after the game. But it took the team that Vince Lombardi built, play-ing in a “Monday Night Football” headliner, to put the NFL’s latest labor head-ache — locked-out officials and their struggling, under-fire replacements — front and center for the nation. Even President Barack Obama, a Bears fan slog-ging through a re-elec-tion campaign, weighed in Tuesday, saying, “We’ve got to get our refs back.” Is this where the NFL’s lockout of its regular refs comes to an end? On a call that many believe cost the Packers and their Cheesehead-wearing fol-lowers a win at Seattle? The NFL stood fast, giving no sign Tuesday that it was close to reaching a new labor pact with the refer-ees’ union. But the outrage grew beyond NFL players (risking fines for speaking out) like Falcons tight end Anthony Gonzalez, who tweeted: “How do you miss that? Pop Warner refs would have gotten that right.” LeBron James tweeted he was “sick” about it and Dirk Nowitzki said he was “not gonna watch another nfl game until real refs” return, while fans pretty much everywhere except Seattle concluded that Green Bay was robbed. Some threatened to boycott until order is restored and others tried to pull the plug on their NFL satellite televi-sion packages, only to be told that they can’t cancel in the middle of the season. “I don’t really want to give them money if they’re going to be greedy about things,” said Packers fan Chris Kroening, who lives in Milwaukee. “It’s just not that fun to watch any more. I can find better things to do on a Sunday afternoon than watch refs make bad calls.” For all their outrage, Kroening and Michael Mantuano, a Packers fan in Pine Bluff, Ark., both acknowledged that they would probably be watch-ing on Sunday when Green Bay hosts the Saints. “Yeah, I’m going to watch the game because I still love the Packers,” Mantuano said. “But it’s a bitter pill to swallow on Tuesday morn-ing when it just clearly wasn’t the right call.” It all started when Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson’s last-gasp pass into the end zone appeared to be hauled down by Packers defensive back M.D. Jennings while Seahawks receiver Golden Tate also got his hands on the ball. Two replacement officials made contrasting signals — one indicated a touchdown, the other an interception.

The Gators are on a bye this we ek before hosting third-ranked LSU on Oct. 6. NC State, Miami playing for first time since 2008CORAL GABLES — There were 66 points scored and 830 yards gained the last time Miami and North Carolina State played one another. When the Hurricanes and Wolfpack renew acquaintances this weekend, none of the peo-ple responsible for those stats will be on the field. After all, four years have passed. It’s a quirk of Atlantic Coast Conference play in this two-division format. Conference “rivals” sometimes aren’t really rivals at all. Rodgers: NFL’s replacement refs tarnishing gameBy CHRIS JENKINSAssociated PressGREEN BAY, Wis. — Still seething about a con-troversial decisive call that went against the Green Bay Packers in Seattle, Aaron Rodgers used his weekly radio show on Tuesday to dismiss the NFL’s explana-tion for the replacement officials’ decision. The MVP also questioned the league’s priori-ties in an ongoing labor dispute with its regular officials. Speaking on Milwaukee’s ESPN 540 AM, Rodgers said the NFL’s willingness to use replacement officials who aren’t up to the task is a sign that the league cares more about money than it does about tarnishing the game. Rodgers apologized to the fans, saying the NFL apparently isn’t willing to do so itself. “I just feel bad for the fans,” Rodgers said on the show. “They pay good money and the game is being tarnished by an NFL who obviously cares more about saving a little money then having the integrity of the game diminish a little bit.” Replacement officials ruled that a last-second scrum in the end zone resulted in a touchdown to Seahawks receiver Golden Tate — when Rodgers, his teammates, Packers fans and much of the football-watching public saw a clear-cut intercep-tion by the Packers’ M.D. Jennings in Seattle’s 14-12 win on Monday night. Rodgers said fans deserve better. “Our sport is generated, the multi-billion dollar machine is generated, by people coming to watch us play,” Rodgers said. “And the product that is on the field is not being comple-mented by an appropriate set of officials. The games are getting out of control.” Rodgers spent part of Tuesday’s show reading an NFL-issued statement on the air, poking holes in the league’s official expla-nation. Rodgers dismissed the statement’s assertion that “officials” determined that both Tate and Jennings had possession of the ball. And the quarterback also scoffed at the notion that replacement referee Wayne Elliott determined that there was no indis-putable visual evidence to overturn the call on the field through instant replay. “I mean, come on, Wayne, that’s embarrass-ing,” Rodgers said. “This is the NFL here saying they should have called pass interference and saying that the refs got it right in the end zone. Unbelievable.” Packers coach Mike McCarthy continued to take the high road Tuesday evening, but did acknowl-edge that he thought the play “clearly” was an inter-ception. And his colleagues around the NFL apparently thought the same thing. “I received more text messages and e-mail s than I did after the Super Bowl,” McCarthy said. “I can tell the impact this made.” But McCarthy said the team needs to move past the incident and focus on Sunday’s game against New Orleans at Lambeau Field. “We’re not going to get any help,” McCarthy said. “I know this is going to be a story that everybody wants to continue to talk about. And frankly, I’m not going to act like it’s not there. This is a play that I’m sure we’ll see on TV as we move on in our lives. That’s the facts of our business.”

NO. 5 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE V, SECTIONS 2, 11, AND 12 (Legislative) Ballot Title: STATE COURTS.— Ballot Summary: Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary. The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a two-thirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislature’s prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and WKH-XGLFLDO4XDOLFDWLRQV&RPPLVVLRQmay be repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a majority vote of the legislators present. Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees provided by a judicial nominating commission, and appointments by the *RYHUQRUDUHQRWVXEMHFWWRFRQUPDWLRQ7KLVUHYLVLRQUHTXLUHV6HQDWHFRQUPDWLRQof a justice of the Supreme Court before WKHDSSRLQWHHFDQWDNHRIFH,IWKH6HQDWHYRWHVQRWWRFRQUPWKHDSSRLQWPHQWWKHjudicial nominating commission must reconvene and may not renominate any SHUVRQZKRVHSULRUDSSRLQWPHQWWROOWKHVDPHYDFDQF\ZDVQRWFRQUPHGE\WKH6HQDWH)RUWKHSXUSRVHRIFRQUPDWLRQthe Senate may meet at any time.

This revision also removes the power of the *RYHUQRUWRUHTXHVWOHVRIWKH-XGLFLDO4XDOLFDWLRQV&RPPLVVLRQWRFRQIRUPWRa prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a circuit and relating to the -XGLFLDO4XDOLFDWLRQV&RPPLVVLRQDQGmakes other nonsubstantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution.Full Text: ARTICLE V JUDICIARY SECTION 2.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 10 years. Early in our marriage my husband talked about wanting to try swinging. We did, and had many enjoyable experiences. Two years ago he decided he no longer wanted to be in the lifestyle, so we stopped. The problem is, I miss it very much. I want to get back into it and have talked with him about it, but he insists we stay out of it. I am torn between going to parties behind his back, suffering my displeasure in silence because I’m not able to do something I really enjoyed, or divorcing. Can you help me figure this out? -FOXY IN PHOENIX DEAR FOXY: Let’s review your options as a process of elimination. I don’t recommend that you do anything behind your husband’s back because, at some point, what you’re doing is sure to come out. I also do not recom-mend suffering in silence because sooner or later your unhappiness will become apparent. That leaves the option of divorce. Because you and your husband no lon-ger see eye to eye on the issue of marital fidelity and he wants a wife who will “cleave” unto him only, it makes sense to go your separate ways so both of your needs can be met. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: The other day when I went jogging, I met a guy just as I stopped to take a water break. He started flirting and I was too tired to tell him to leave, so I decided to humor him until I cooled down enough to resume my jog. He asked me basic questions trying to get to know me, and when I told him I was a college student, he asked for my GPA. When I told him it was none of his business, he laughed and asked what my problem was. Abby, I wasn’t trying to hide a low GPA, but I don’t think it’s something to tell people in a first meeting. Is it normal for people to ask others what their GPA is -especially if they just met? -CO-ED IN BOSTON DEAR CO-ED: When someone says he or she is a student, the question that usually follows is, “Where are you studying?” or “What’s your major?” It’s not, “What’s your GPA?” which seems like a not-so-subtle way of asking whether you’re a good student or not. His attempt to make conversation was clumsy -and because he said the question is one he asks routinely, let’s hope he learns from his encoun-ter with you and scratches it off his list of pickup lines. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have an issue I’d like your opinion on. What should the Tooth Fairy do with baby teeth after collecting them? She stopped coming to our house years ago, but the baby teeth have been duti-fully saved -every one of them -in a jar where the Tooth Fairy left them. Our kids are adults now, but I don’t know what I should or could do with these little keepsakes of a beautiful boy who stole my heart the minute I looked into his eyes. -ALWAYS HIS MOM DEAR MOM: Let’s see ... You could have them mounted and display them on a charm bracelet. You could offer to sell them back to your son. Or, you could place them in an envelope and put them in a box with the curl from his first haircut and a pair of his baby shoes. One day I’m sure he’ll be touched. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t force change; accept what’s being offered. Your communica-tion skills will help you establish a position that will bring you greater clout. Share your vision and you will attract inter-est in what you are doing as well as in who you are. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Sudden changes will alter the way you do things professionally. Don’t trust what others do or say. Look out for your own interests and protect your position, finances and health. When one door closes, another will open. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Expand your interests and put your skills to the test. Set your priorities straight and don’t stop until you reach your desti-nation. Love is in the stars, but it must not throw you off your professional game plan. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Consider your options, look at what others are contributing and make a decision that will keep you out of trouble. Keeping your emotions under control will be necessary, especially when dealing with children, elders or someone you don’t trust. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Temper tantrums will develop if you don’t compromise. A personal relationship may suffer if you use pressure to get your way. Travel plans or visiting unfamiliar places will help you broaden your perspective on a situation you face. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Try your very best. Get everything on your to-do list out of the way before you take on more commitments. A work-related event would allow you to share your plans for the future, gathering inter-est from those who might help you advance. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Discussing plans will motivate you to get started. Love is on the rise. Getting involved in causes you feel strongly about will allow you to engage in a friendship based on com-mon interests. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Keeping your thoughts private will be beneficial financially and emotionally. Once you are sure you have your plans ready to launch, you will not have to worry about someone disclosing infor-mation that has the poten-tial to stand in the way of your success. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Don’t hesitate to show off what you can do. Someone will see the value you bring to the table and want to include you in something you’ll find interesting and lucrative. Love is in the stars. Travel and communication are favored. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Communication must be well thought out and executed with preci-sion. An unusual reaction from someone you thought you knew well will catch you off guard. Don’t share information that you don’t want spread around. Love is likely to be costly. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Make personal changes that will help to simplify your life and bring in more cash. Cutting your overhead or sharing your expenses with someone will help you get a better handle on your situation. A love relationship will enhance your life. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Emotional stress and deception can be expected. Don’t share secret infor-mation. Concentrate on learning as much as you can about a situation that could end up causing you a problem. Keep your money and possessions in a safe place. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
