Last year, 298 county seniors scored an average 19.8 out of 36 on the ACT, which measures college readi-ness in English, math, reading and science. “It’s another good indica-tor that we are right up there with the state’s scores,” said school district Superintendent Michael Millikin. College-entrance test scores are one of five components used by the state to grade high schools, he said. Early indica-tors show both Fort White and Columbia high schools will earn solid B’s, possibly A’s, he said. Millikin said he expects the state to release high school grades by November or December.

Westside Elementary School’s only fundraiser is a community night centered on family fun. Westside’s Fall Festival kicks off 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29 with a fun run and continues until 8 p.m. with games, activities and food. Bracelets to enjoy all the rides and games are $10 for children. Parents are admitted free, but can play games too for a nominal fee. “This is open to the entire community, not just Westside,” said Amy Gordon, PTO member. The festival is an alternative to the cookie dough fundraiser the school usually does, said Principal Cherie Hill. A PTO member went to a school festival in South Florida, brought the idea back, and the school really bought into the concept, Hill said. “Our thought was we wanted to do an event to involve the whole community for a fun-filled night and raise money to put back into the school,” said Heather Gray, Westside PTO treasurer. Fundraisers can be stressful for parents, who may feel obligated to buy things they can’t really afford, she said. The event is designed to be less expensive and a fun night out, Gray said. The school hosted festivals many years ago, but not of this magnitude, Hill said. Westside is hoping to raise about $10,000, generally what other fundraisers bring in for the school, she said. The PTO uses the money to buy items on teachers’ wish lists, like technology, Weekly Reader magazines and books. Each grade level designed a game, adding on to activities like face painting, bounce houses and hair decorating, she said. At the top of every hour there will be a new group activity, like Zumba or hula hoop contests.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Walmart worker missing after shift ORMOND BEACH Authorities have issued a Silver Alert for Rose Bruce, 79, who hasnt been seen since leaving an Ormond Beach Walmart at the end of her shift. Bruce left Walmart at 10 p.m. Monday and drove to her nearby apartment, which she shares with daughter-in-law Cathy Ryan. Volusia County Sheriffs deputies said Bruce was supposed to return to Walmart an hour later to pick up Ryan, who also works there. When she didnt show up or answer her cellphone, Ryan walked home. There, she found the front door unlocked. Missing student suspect had shovel GAINESVILLE A student under arrest in the case of a missing fellow University of Florida stu dent bought a shovel and duct tape just days before the victim disappeared, police said Wednesday. Christian Aguilar, 18, was last seen Thursday at a Best Buy store in Gainesville, police said. He was with Pedro Bravo, 18, who faces a third-degree felony charge of depriving a victim of medical treat ment. Bravo was arrested Monday and was being held on $100,000 bond. Bravo purchased the duct tape and shovel sev eral days before Aguilar went missing, Police also said Bravo gave conflicting stories about a fight the two had and was no longer speaking to investigators. Lawsuit looms over health officials MIAMI Federal investigators are threaten ing swift legal action if state health officials do not work with them to resolve allegations that disabled children are being sent to adult nursing homes unnecessarily. U.S. Department of Justice officials said the state is violating the federal Americans with Disabilities Act by allowing more than 200 children with disabilities and even babies to be seg regated in nursing homes, often for years. Federal officials sent a terse letter to the state Tuesday and suggested a meeting in the next two weeks. Daughter kills dad with pickax GAINESVILLE A north Florida woman and her daughter were con victed in the 2011 death of the womans husband. Stephanie Lynn Hudnall, 42, and Guenevere Lynn Hudnall, 20, were each sentenced Tuesday to 40 years in prison for killing William Hudnall, 51. He was Gueneveres father. Prosecutors said Stephanie Hudnall was a manipulative mother who persuaded her daughter to kill him so they could get his Social Security benefits. Officials said the women went to William Hudnalls home in Hawthorne in June 2011. There, they said, Guenevere Hudnall struck Hudnall with a pickax until he died. Guns, gear stolen from patrol car BIG PINE KEY Authorities in the Florida Keys have recovered some of the equipment stolen from a Monroe County deputys patrol car, but they havent found any suspects. The cruiser belonged to a sergeant who lives in Big Pine Key. His personal handgun, an automatic rifle and a pistol were sto len from inside the car and from the trunk Monday. Detectives and investiga tors dont know how the suspects got inside the car. Also taken were tactical SWAT gear, including a bullet resistant vest, and ammunition for all three guns. Associated Press Moon River crooner Andy Williams dies ST. LOUIS W ith a string of gold albums, a hit TV series and the signa ture Moon River, Andy Williams was a voice of the 1960s, although not the s we usually hear about. The old cliche says that if you can remember the 1960s, you werent there, the singer once recalled. Well, I was there all right, but my memory of them is blurred not by any drugs I took but by the relentless pace of the schedule I set myself. Williams plaintive tenor, boyish features and wholesome, middleAmerica appeal helped him outlast many of the rock stars who had displaced him and such fellow croon ers as Frank Sinatra and Perry Como. He remained on the charts into the 1970s, hosting hugely popular Christmas TV specials, and continued to perform in his 80s at the Moon River Theatre he built in Branson, Mo. In November 2011, when Williams announced that he had been diag nosed with bladder cancer, he vowed to return to performing the following year: His 75th in show business. Williams died Tuesday night at his home in Branson following a yearlong battle with the disease, his Los Angeles-based publicist, Paul Shefrin, said Wednesday. He was 84. He became a major star the same year as Elvis Presley, 1956, with the Sinatra-like swing Canadian Sunset, and for a time he was pushed into such Presley imitations as Lips of Wine and the No. 1 smash Butterfly. Norton to play Words With Friends for charity LOS ANGELES Edward Norton, Jonah Hill, Snoop Dogg and several other stars are slated to play in a celebrity tournament of the popular online game Words With Friends for charity. The celebs will begin facing off against each other in matches of the Scrabble-like wordbuilding game from publisher Zynga Inc. on Sept. 27. Norton will be playing for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Fund. Ann Romney: Electing a Mormon a good signal LOS ANGELES Ann Romney said the election of her husband, a Mormon, would signal that preju dices are left behind just as the election of President Barack Obama sent that signal. The wife of Republican presi dential nominee Mitt Romney tells Tonight Show host Jay Leno that she loves the fact that the nation elected its first AfricanAmerican president. Romney said she hoped that if her husband were elected, We would see more of the same, that prejudices are left behind. Next Bachelor is Bachelorette castoff LOS ANGELES ABC said the next star of The Bachelor will be Sean Lowe, 28, who was dumped on The Bachelorette. The Dallas busi nessman will be the one doing the choosing on The Bachelor.

SEPTEMBER 28, 29 & 30 Reagans named Farm Family of the Year From staff reports For outstanding farming and community service, Terry and Dianne Reagan were selected as the 2012 North Florida Fair/ Suwannee County Farm Family of the Year. The award was presented at the Annual Suwannee County Farm Bureau Meeting held September 20 at the First Baptist Church in Live Oak. Terry Reagan is a native Floridian, born and raised in Pinellas County where his father started a dairy after returning from World War II duty. The Reagans moved to Bradenton in 1955, where they built one of the most progressive dairies at the time, milk ing 1,000 cows and farming approximately 1,200 acres. In 1989, Terry Reagan partnered with his broth er-in-law, Carl Lowe, and moved to Suwannee County to start a new dairy. Their farm, called Suwannee Dairy, began with 200 cows and 120 acres of land. Today they milk nearly 700 cows and farm 480 acres in the McAlpin community. Attention to details related to milk production, farm economics, crop agronom ics and the environment have kept their farm ing operation successful. Suwannee Dairy has been recognized by Florida Farm Bureau and the Suwannee River Partnership with a CARES (County Alliance for Responsible Environmental Stewardship) Award for out standing efforts to improve natural resource manage ment. Reagan has been elected to the Board of Directors of both his milk coopera tive, Southeast Milk, Inc. for about 15 years, and Select Sires, the largest cattle breeding coopera tive in the United States, for three years. In addi tion, he has served many years as a Supervisor of the Suwannee Conservation District and is a member of the Dairy Advisory Committee for the Florida Farm Bureau. Reagan has also served as a member of both the Dairy and Overall Advisory Committees for the UF/Suwannee County Extension Service. Reagan has been mar ried to his wife, Dianne, for over 27 years. They have five children, Cindy, Kristi, Jason, Jeffrey, and Scott, and eleven grandchildren. Besides being a supportive farm wife, Dianne works as clearing house coordinator for Love, Inc., a non-prof it organization that helps those in need. Reagan knows dairy farming may not always be a big money maker, but feels it instills positive fam ily values.

L ast week New York Times polling guru Nate Silver tweeted, “The. Polls. Have. Stopped. Making. Any. Sense.” They do make a lot of sense if the objective is to help President Obama win a second term — or so Democrats think. Major election surveys in the last few months have shown Mr. Obama either in the lead or tied for the win, despite an economic record of massive unemployment and astronomi-cal debt. With that kind of bag-gage, the current Oval Office occupant ought to be trailing by at least 10 points. The disconnect between data and reality has spurred increas-ing analysis of the polls and polling methods generally. Polls are used to drive the political debate and affect morale in both camps. Shaping the polls means shaping perceptions, which could mean determining who turns out to vote and who stays home. Pro-Obama polling may be having such an impact. Several recent surveys show that 60 percent of the electorate believes Mr. Obama will win the race in November. The Intrade prediction site places the odds of a second term at over 70 percent. Most criticism has focused on the oversampling of pro-Obama constituencies. Many polls include more responses from Democrats than Republicans based on turnout in the unrepresentative 2008 election. This has the effect of wildly inflating Mr. Obama’s final score. In response, con-servative QStarNews has set up a website called “Unskewed Polls,” which recalculates major poll results based on numbers reflecting the current, more balanced partisan breakdown. The site shows Republican con-tender Mitt Romney leading in reweighted recent polls by 5-10 percent. The latest QStarNews Daily Tracking Poll has Mr. Romney ahead of Mr. Obama by 53 percent to 45 percent. Another way to avoid the pitfalls of subjective partisan sam-pling is to look at the political middle. No candidate has been elected president in the modern era without winning middle-class voters and independents. According to the latest Politico/George Washington University battleground poll, Mr. Romney has a commanding 14-point advantage among middle-class families. According to Gallup, the “pure independents,” those without partisan or ideologi-cal affiliation, give Mr. Obama a 37 percent approval rating. Mr. Obama may believe that those who live on government handouts represent a “majority coalition,” but if he loses Middle America he will be off to Hawaii in January. Obama campaign manager Jim Messina recently told Democrats to ignore national polls showing a tightening race and to focus on battleground surveys indicating comfortable leads. Even among those polls, there are signs that the race is tight. In any case, the per-ception game cuts both ways. The same effort that builds a sense of hopelessness among Republicans is likely to create complacency among the less motivated in the Democratic base. Committed anti-Obama voters will show up to cast their ballots no matter what, but this is not the case with smug, self-satisfied Obama supporters who have been told they cannot lose. So those who would like to see a second term for Mr. Obama needn’t worry about what hap-pens Nov. 6. They don’t even have to show up to vote. They can just stay home. After all, it’s in the bag. Rigging the polls ONE OPINION I n 1978, I was a young foreign correspondent assigned to cover “the Troubles,” the conflict in Northern Ireland between Protestants and Catholics, between those loyal to the British Crown and those determined that Ireland become a united and independent nation. There were “paramilitar-ies” on both sides. Terrorism -bombings, assassinations and other forms of violence target-ing civilians for political ends -was among the principal weap-ons employed. But in at least one way, terrorism was different then: While I sometimes worried that I might end up on the wrong Belfast street at the wrong time, I was confident that no one saw me as a target. At some point over the years since, new technologies and ide-ologies brought changes. This became obvious when the Wall Street Journal’s Daniel Pearl took his notebook and pen to a 2002 meeting with terrorists in Karachi. These terrorists had a different approach to shaping the narrative, one that would entail beheading Pearl on cam-era, and posting the video on the Internet. The Troubles wracked Northern Ireland for almost 30 years. More than 1,500 people were killed. In those days, that was a serious number. But early in the new century nearly twice as many innocent people would be killed on a single day in New York and Washington. Meanwhile, in Syria over the past year, a conflict with ethnoreligious-political undercurrents has taken some 20,000 lives. Perceiving this as an inflation-ary trend does not inspire opti-mism. The Troubles ended with the Good Friday Agreement of 1998. Two Northern Irish politi-cians, John Hume and David Trimble, were awarded the Nobel Prize -a rare occasion on which the awards were actually deserved. Today, Northern Ireland remains British. But a good road connects the Republic in the south with the United Kingdom in the north and no border guards or checkpoints impede travel between the two. Former terrorists, reformed if not repentant, serve in Northern Ireland’s government. Should that not give us hope that peace in the Middle East also is possible and perhaps even imminent? Absolutely not. At its worst, the IRA never sought the destruction of Britain, and never vowed to wipe Protestants off the Irish map. The most extreme Protestant paramilitaries did not argue that southern Catholics had no right to self-determina-tion. These days, it is fashionably multicultural and politically cor-rect to assign blame in roughly equal measure to Israelis and Palestinians. It also is patently false. Time and again, Israelis have demonstrated their willing-ness to compromise in order to achieve an imperfect piece with their neighbors, not least those in Gaza and the West Bank. Hamas, by contrast, is openly committed to Israel’s annihi-lation, attacking those who would settle for less as traitors and apostates. Fatah’s spokes-men, at least in Arabic, express solidarity with Hamas on that score. Meanwhile, Iran’s rul-ers, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood -all continue to insist that Israel can never be accepted, that it is intolerable for even the tiniest swath of the Middle East to be ruled by non-Muslims, least of all the despised Jews who, it is charged with bewildering inconsistency, defied the Prophet Mohammad in ancient Arabia and have no roots in the region. “There are fascist forces in this world,” Trimble said in his 1998 Noble Lecture. “The first step to their defeat is to define them.” In Ireland, that step was taken and what Trimble has termed “a sort of peace” has been the admirable result. In the Middle East, too many are still unwilling or unable to take that first step, and so no other steps can follow. Ireland’s ‘peace of sorts’ no model for Middle East LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:God bless America, three of the most beautiful words in the English language. God-loving Americans cherish those words while we still have the freedom to say them. It gives me great pride to be be able to say that my hus-band, Bill, and my son, Donald, proudly served and retired from careers in the United States Navy. I have three grandsons that served in the Navy; two of them are still on active duty. The only two things that have granted us our freedoms are our faith in God and the strength of our military. President Obama is doing everything in his power to abolish both of these. Obama has done nothing to help protect our military, or to show respect for these brave men and women. Every week we have young Americans killed in Afghanistan or somewhere in the Middle East. Yet our president is using the courts, in some states, trying to block absentee voting from these brave Americans. In one state the Democrats wanted the court to say that their absentee bal-lots could only be counted if they were hand-delivered by the actual voter by the eve of the November election! We are to believe that our troops can actually take a few days off to fly back to America and deliver by hand their ballots? Get seri-ous!. However, Obama and Eric Holder are fighting for illegal aliens to be allowed to vote. On September 11, the American embassies in Libya and Egypt were bru-tally attacked by terrorists. Jay Carney, the White House press secretary, has finally admitted that organized terrorists perpe-trated the attacks. Not a result of some tasteless film. Our ambassador to Libya, two Navy Seals, and a fourth embassy employee were murdered. After President Obama was informed about the situation he hops on his plane to enjoy a fund-raising trip in Las Vegas! Obama has mandated that parents and family members visiting their wounded sons and daughters in government-operated hospitals are NOT permitted to bring Bibles for the injured troops! This is totally asinine. And yet Obama believes in freedom of religion? Just another one of the White House lies. If Obama cared anything about the safety of the American people he would not have required people living on the southwestern borders to live daily in fear of drug cartels, and surrounded by traffickers of illegal immigrants, sometimes resulting in the murdering of our border patrols, sometimes with guns supplied by America. Who do you vote for in November for president and members of the U.S. Congress? It is very simple. You either vote for God and freedom, or you vote against God and freedom. This may be our last chance to make that decision. Think long and hard before casting your votes. And remember, the individuals that we send to Congress should be expected to vote for the rights of American people, and not just be a “yes” man to any president.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com T he high school class of 2012 has taken its College Board exams and the results are not good, showing the nation still hasn’t cracked the code of how to deliv-er a quality secondary education to large numbers of students from diverse backgrounds. The results are dismaying because they come after a decade of No Child Left Behind. If that law forces teach-ers, as critics allege, to “teach to the test,” it is not this test they are teaching to. The test is divided into three parts, critical reading, writing and math. A perfect score on each section is 800 -2400 if the student aces all three. But mean reading scores were 496, a 40-year low, 34 points below 1972. Math was flat at 514, roughly unchanged since 2007. And writing was 488, down nine points since that section was added to the test in 2006. Over half, 57 percent, did not achieve a combined score of 1550, the level at which a student is deemed ready for college-level work. Overwhelmingly, the single greatest factor correlating to achievement was household income. Students from families earning $20,000 or less had a mean combined score of 1322. The scores increase in stair-step fashion with each addi-tional $20,000 in family income. The threshold readiness figure of 1550 wasn’t reached until household income approached $100,000. The score for stu-dents from families earning $200,000 or more was 1722. This suggests that most of the much-discussed education reforms -more testing, stricter teacher evaluations, smaller classes, charter schools -might result in improvements, some of them perhaps significant, around the margins, but that the single most effective reform would be a rising and widely distributed prosperity for all.

gate a reported rob-bery. Deputies interviewed a woman who said a man stole $150 from her purse while they stood on the side of the road, then fled on a scooter, the muf-fler of which struck her on the leg. “We believe that the suspect and victim knew one another,” said Sgt. Ed Seifert, Columbia County Sheriff’s Office public information officer, who did not elaborate on why the victim and suspect were standing on the roadside. “The suspect allegedly told the victim that he had a gun when he was fleeing the scene.” He said the victim received a minor burn to her leg from contact with the muffler of the scooter, but no other injuries were report-ed. Deputies began a search of the area and discovered the sus-pect’s scooter hidden in a shed behind a res-idence on Southwest Diamond Court. Seifert said the shed belonged to a third party who was not involved in the origi-nal incident. Deputies searched the storage shed and discovered the suspect hiding inside. The suspect was taken into custody without incident and deputies recovered a .12-gauge shotgun and a 9 mm handgun from the area the sus-pect was found hiding. Deputies also learned that the scooter driv-en by the suspect had been reported stolen out of Alachua County. “The suspect was taken into custody within an hour of the original call for ser-vice,” Seifert said. “Detectives are work-ing with Alachua County authorities to return the stolen scoot-er to their victim.” 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2012 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-04286A JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterMembers of the Lake City Garden Club pose for a photogra ph Wednesday by the south entrance of historic downtown L ake City.

A lover of bread and pasta, Myers had to give up grains such as wheat, rye and barley. But as she’s become used to her diet and more restaurants and grocery stores cater to gluten-free followers, she said eliminating gluten has become much easier. “Now, I don’t even think about it,” Myers said. “Gluten free” has become something of a buzzword as more people are diagnosed with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease. Mike Carew, assistant store director of the DeKalb Jewel-Osco, said he’s noticed items that have always been gluten-free now advertising the absence of gluten on the packaging. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, 1 percent of the U.S. popu-lation suffers from celiac disease. Of that number, only 5 percent have actually been diagnosed with it. Monica Klemm, registered dietitian at Kishwaukee Community Hospital, said the hospital has seen an increase in the number of people diagnosed with celiac disease. When someone has a gluten sensitivity, it is because tiny, fingerlike projections in the small intestine called villi that absorb food nutrients have been flattened and can’t do the job. Klemm said celiac disease develops when the immune system damages the lining of the small intestine. Celiac disease and gluten intolerance can cause bloating, cramping, diarrhea and fatigue. Following a gluten-free diet eliminating wheat, barley and rye is the only treatment, Klemm said. Plenty of people have suffered from bloating or cramping for years, unaware of the cause of the problem, said Judith Lukaszuk, associate professor of nutri-tion and didactic program director at Northern Illinois University. Because the symptoms can be rather generic, it’s common for people to think something they ate simply didn’t agree with them, or they might assume some-thing other than food with gluten caused the symptoms, said Lisa Brandt, regis-tered dietitian who works at Hy-Vee in Sycamore. Klemm and Brandt said people might not realize how prevalent gluten can be in packaged foods. For example, gluten is a binding agent in many processed foods, Brandt said. “You have to look at all the ingredients if you buy boxed stuff,” said Amy Dersch of Sycamore, who has a gluten sensitivity. Within a week or two of adhering to a gluten-free diet, Lukaszuk said those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivities begin to notice a difference. Brandt said some also try a gluten-free diet out of curiosity. Before she realized she couldn’t tolerate gluten, Dersch said she noticed symp-toms like irritability, sciatica and bloating after eating food containing it. Now, she stays away from items with wheat, barley and rye, including bread or any baked goods, and focuses on fresh foods like meat and produce. At restau-rants, Dersch said she tends to take a chance and hope for the best. Because her husband also follows a gluten-free diet, Brandt said she makes muffins and cookies without gluten, uses corn tortillas and gluten-free pasta. “I think it’s not so difficult at home as when we go out to eat,” she said. “For a lot of people, it’s a big change.” Local restaurants have experienced some demand for gluten-free dishes and are responding. Like vegans and vegetar-ians, those who avoid gluten want options, said Mel Witmer, owner of O’Leary’s Restaurant and Pub in DeKalb, which has offered a gluten-free menu for about six months. C.J. Finn, manager of Pizza Villa in DeKalb, said they received customer requests for a gluten-free crust, which is now a popular seller. Grocery stores, too, have increased their gluten-free options. Brandt said Hy-Vee offers almost 1,000 gluten-free items. She directs people to these products if they let her know they’ve been diagnosed with celiac disease or have a gluten sen-sitivity.

Myers has been eating gluten-free for about six years. MARILYNN MARCHIONEAP Chief Medical WriterIt’s a medical nightmare: a 24-year-old man endures 350 surgeries since child-hood to remove growths that keep coming back in his throat and have spread to his lungs, threatening his life. Now doctors have found a way to help him by way of a scientific coup that holds promise for mil-lions of cancer patients. The bizarre case is the first use in a patient of a new discovery: how to keep ordinary and cancer-ous cells alive indefinitely in the lab. The discovery allows doctors to grow “mini tumors” from each patient’s cancer in a lab dish, then test various drugs or combinations on them to see which works best. It takes only a few cells from a biopsy and less than two weeks to do, with materials and methods common in most hospitals. Although the approach needs much more testing against many different types of cancer, research-ers think it could offer a cheap, simple way to per-sonalize treatment without having to analyze each patient’s genes. “We see a lot of potential for it,” said one study leader, Dr. Richard Schlegel, pathology chief at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center in Washington. “Almost everyone could do it easily.” An independent expert agreed. For infections, it’s routine to grow bacteria from a patient in lab dishes to see which antibiotics work best, Dr. George Q. Daley of Children’s Hospital Boston and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute said in an email. “But this has never been possible with cancer cells because they don’t easily grow in cul-ture,” he said. The new technique may reveal in advance whether a person would be helped by a specific chemother-apy, without risking side effects and lost time if the drug doesn’t work. “Pretty nifty,” Daley wrote. In the case of the 24-year-old, described in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine, lab-dish tests suggested that a drug used to treat a type of blood cancer and some other unrelated conditions might help. It’s not a drug that doctors would have thought to try, because the man technically does not have cancer. But his lung tumor shrank after a few months of treatment, and he has been stable for more than a year. He still has to have operations to remove throat growths that keep coming back, but only about once every five months. The man, an information technology specialist in suburban Washington who asked to remain anonymous to protect his privacy, has recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, or RRP. It’s usually due to infection at birth with cer-tain types of a virus, HPV, that causes genital warts. The condition causes wartlike growths in the throat, usually around the voice box. These growths usually are noncancerous but can turn malignant, and even benign ones can prove fatal if they spread to the lungs. The main treat-ment is surgery, usually with lasers to vaporize the growths and keep them from choking off the air-way or making it tough to talk. About 10,000 or more people in the U.S. have the disease, said Jennifer Woo, president of the RRP Foundation. Woo, 29, is a medical student at Georgetown and one of the researchers on the study. She also has the condition but said it is confined to her throat and has required only about 20 surgeries so far. The man in the study has a much more serious case. “I was diagnosed when I was 3 or 4. At first, I had to have surgery every 7 to 10 days,” the man said in a phone interview. “I get short of breath and my voice will get more hoarse.” Two years ago, the growths to his lungs became extensive and life-threatening, and his physician, Dr. Scott Myers, described the condition at a meeting of Georgetown hospital specialists. “It’s crushing the airway,” Myers said. Doctors suggested that the new lab method pio-neered by Schlegel and others might help. Bizarre tumor case may lead to custom cancer care Quitting driving: Families key but docs have a roleLAURAN NEERGAARDAP Medical WriterWASHINGTON — Families may have to watch for dings in the car and plead with an older driver to give up the keys — but there’s new evi-dence that doctors could have more of an influ-ence on one of the most wrenching decisions facing a rapidly aging population. A large study from Canada found that when doctors warn patients, and tell driving authorities, that the older folks may be medically unfit to be on the road, there’s a drop in serious crash injuries among those drivers. The study, in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine, couldn’t tell if the improvement was because those patients drove less, or drove more carefully once the doctors pointed out the risk. But as the number of older drivers surges, it raises the question of how families and doctors could be working together to determine if and when age-related health prob-lems — from arthritis to frailty to Alzheimer’s dis-ease — are bad enough to impair driving. Often, families are making that tough choice between safety and inde-pendence on their own. “It’s very scary,” said Pat Sneller of Flower Mound, Texas, who talked her husband, Lee, into quitting about a year after he was diagnosed with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease. The couple had recently moved from California, one of the few U.S. states that require doctors to report drivers with wor-risome health conditions to licensing authorities. Pat Sneller was stunned to learn Texas doesn’t require that doctor involve-ment, and health workers advised her to ride with her husband and judge his abilities for herself. Eventually her husband called home in a panic, lost while driving in unfamiliar Dallas for volunteer work. A long scrape on the car that he couldn’t explain was the final straw. In 2010, she persuaded him to quit driving, although the now-72-year-old’s license remains good until 2014. “He still says occasionally, ‘I can still drive, you know,’” Pat Sneller said. By one U.S. estimate, about 600,000 older driv-ers a year quit because of health conditions. The problem: There are no clear-cut guidelines to tell who really needs to — and given the lack of transpor-tation options in much of the country, quitting too soon can be detrimental for someone who might have functioned well for several more years. It’s never an easy discussion. “It did not go over so well,” Benjamin Benson recalls of the time when his sons told the 87-year-old they feared his reflexes had slowed too much for safe driving. “I’ve never had an accident,” the Peabody, Mass., man said. His family’s response: “Well, do you want to wait for the first one?” The retired accountant wasn’t ready to quit then, but he quietly began to analyze what would happen to him and his wife, who doesn’t drive, if he did. His longtime doctor wouldn’t advise one way or the other. So over a few months, the couple tried online grocery shopping. They took a taxi to the dentist, not cheap at $38 round-trip. But Benson calculated that maintaining and insuring the car was expensive, too, when he drove only 3,000 miles a year. A few weeks ago, Benson surprised his fam-ily by giving away the car, and he says he’s faring fine so far. “Most people in our age group know that it’s inevi-table and play around with the idea that it’s going to come and the only ques-tion is when,” Benson said. “I didn’t want to be pushed into it.” ASSOCIATED PRESSBenjamin Benson poses in the parking lot outside his r esidence at a senior community in Peabody, Mass. There’s new evidence that doctors could be come more of an influence on one of the most wrenching decisions facing a rapidly ag ing population.

By JENNIFER AGIESTA andRICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVARAssociated PressWASHINGTON — They may not like it, but they don’t see it going away. About 7 in 10 Americans think President Barack Obama’s health care law will go fully into effect with some changes, ranging from minor to major altera-tions, an Associated Press GfK poll finds. Just 12 percent said they expect the Affordable Care Act — “Obamacare” to dis-missive opponents — to be repealed completely. The law — covering 30 million uninsured, requir-ing virtually every legal U.S. resident to carry health insurance and forbidding insurers from turning away the sick — remains as divisive as the day it passed more than two years ago. After surviving a Supreme Court challenge in June, its fate will probably be settled by the November elec-tion, with Republican Mitt Romney vowing to begin repealing it on Day One and Obama pledging to diligently carry it out. That’s what the candidates said. But the poll found Americans are con-verging on the idea that the overhaul will be part of their lives in some form, although probably not down to its last clause and comma. Forty-one percent said they expect it to be fully implemented with minor changes, while 31 percent said they expect to see it take effect with major changes. Only 11 percent said they think it will be implemented as passed. Americans also prefer that states have a strong say in carrying out the overhaul. The poll found that 63 percent want states to run new health insurance markets called “exchanges.” They would open for business in 2014, signing up individuals and small businesses for tax-payer-subsidized private coverage. With many GOP governors still on the side-lines, the federal govern-ment may wind up operat-ing the exchanges in half or more of the states, an outcome only 32 percent of Americans want to see, according to the poll. The poll, developed with researchers from Stanford University and the University of Michigan, also found an enduring generation gap, with people 65 and older most likely to oppose the bill and those younger than 45 less likely to be against it. “People are sort of averaging out the candidates’ positions,” said Harvard School of Public Health professor Robert Blendon, who tracks polling on health care issues. “The presidential candidates are saying there’s a stark choice, but when you ask the voters, they don’t believe that the whole bill will be repealed or imple-mented as it is today in law.” Republicans remain overwhelmingly opposed to the overhaul and in favor of repeal. But only 21 percent said they think that will actually come about. Romney supporter Toni Gardner, 69, a retired school system nurse from Louisville, Ky., said that until a few weeks ago she was sure her candidate fully supported repeal, as she does. But then Romney said in an interview there are a number of things he likes in the law that he would put into practice, including making sure that people with pre-existing medical problems can get cover-age. The Romney cam-paign quickly qualified that, but the candidate’s statement still resonates. “If Romney gets in, he’ll go with parts of it,” Gardner said, “and there are parts of that he won’t go with.” Gardner thinks expanding coverage will cost too much and may make it harder to get an appointment with a doc-tor. Besides, she doesn’t believe the government can handle the job. She’s covered by Medicare — a government-run health system — but said “that wasn’t a choice that I had.” 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2012 Page Editor: Jason M.

Fort White High will host the undefeated Tigers at 7:30 p.m. Friday. One of Union County’s wins last year was 16-14 over the Indians on a field goal by Joaquin Lovo as the clock ticked down to :00. The game was tied 7-7 at the half and the Tigers went on top with two field goals by Lovo. Fort White quarterback Andrew Baker led the Indians on an 11-play, 66-yard drive for a touchdown and a 14-13 lead with 2:44 left to play. Baker, whose 179 yards passing offset a paltry 47 yards rushing by the Indians, was 4 of 6 for 53 yards in the drive. Walter Mabrey ran the kickoff back 40 yards into Fort White territory and the Tigers moved down for the winning points from 23 yards out. Union County ran its 2011 winning streak to 11 games before losing 27-6 to Jefferson County High in the third round of the state playoffs. The Monticello set of Tigers went on to easily win state. Tigers beat Fort White, 16-14, in last year’s game. INDIANS continued on 6B By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comAs Columbia High enters the final game of a four-game road stretch, the Tigers are sitting close to where they want to be. A loss against the state’s top-ranked Gainesville High aside, Columbia is 3-1 with four of its last five games remaining at home. This week, Columbia travels to Ocala’s Vanguard High to take on the Knights in a rematch of last year’s 22-21 win for the Tigers. For head coach Brian Allen, it’s all about main-taining focus to accomplish a season-long goal. “The road trip has been good thus far,” Allen said. “We want to finish this first part of the season at 4-1 without a blunder in this final game. We want to finish the road run on a good side. Tuesday we had a really good practice and you could tell the focus was there more than it was last week. We all know that game was closer than it had to be.” Allen said that wasn’t meant as a disrespect to what Oakleaf High has done under first-year coach Derek Chipoletti. “We thought they were a better football team than in previous years,” Allen said. “I’m highly complemen-tal of what they’ve done. Chipoletti had done a good job and their quarterback (Austin Chipoletti) did a good job of managing the game.” Allen said the biggest thing the Tigers had to fight on the road and what will be key again this week is keep-ing the momentum. “I told the kids at the half we have to drive down the field and not let them get the momentum or we’d be in for a dog fight,” Allen said. “We didn’t drive the field and had poor execution on a punt, and that let them grab the momentum. We were able to get a fumble, but it had already shifted. We need to make sure we punch other teams in the mouth and make them one dimensional.” Allen believes had the Tigers scored on their first possession that we’d be Four-game stretch ends at Ocala Vanguard.

The story has been slightly different from last season as far as the Tigers playing during portions of the game. Last year, the Tigers were a second-half team, often having to find a way to come from behind. This season, Columbia has been ahead or tied in each game, often taking the foot off the gas in the sec-ond half. “You look at different teams and the good teams don’t give up in the second half when they’re down,” Allen said. “They play with a sense of urgency. Last year, we were down a lot, so at the half it sounded like I was giving a pregame speech to get the guys fired up.” That hasn’t been the case this year and Allen said he takes part of that blame. “We’ve been up 19 or 50 and have went out and executed like we needed to on offense, defense and special teams,” Allen said. “Because of that, the conversation at the half has changed since we’re already established. If we were down at the half, we might have had different conversations.” Allen said one of the keys to the rest of the season will be putting together a complete game. “We’ve got to find a way to fire them up to play like we’re down 21 points instead of up,” Allen said. “Maybe I need to do some-thing to help them realize that each game is 48 min-utes so we play with the same tempo. We have to play four complete quar-ters, not just two and a half.” The Tigers get a chance to do that against Vanguard at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. BRENT KUYKENDALL /Lake City ReporterColumbia High head coach Brian Allen speaks with the Tigers after defeating Oakleaf High on Friday in Orange Park. More changes to BCS?By RALPH D. RUSSOAssociated PressNEW YORK — A tentative plan for the new college football postseason calls for a Pac-12 or Big 12 team to face the best team from a group of five conferences, including the Big East. A person with direct knowledge of the plan for the four-team playoff in 2014 told The Associated Press that either a Pac-12 or a Big 12 team likely will be the opponent for the top-rated champion from the Big East, Mountain West, Conference USA, Sun Belt and Mid-American Conference. The person spoke on condition of anonym-ity Wednesday because the conferences did not want to make the plan public. The proposal has the Pac12 sending either its champi-on or a replacement team to the game in years when the Rose Bowl hosts a national semifinal. In years the Rose Bowl is a traditional Big Ten-Pac-12 matchup, the Big 12 would send one of its top teams to the game. The deal with the Big 12 and Pac-12 would be similar to the one the Orange Bowl is working on with the Big Ten and the Southeastern Conference. That deal, which has not been completed, would match a team from either of those conferences or Notre Dame against the Atlantic Coast Conference champ or a another ACC team. BOWLING: Lady Tigers impress Continued From Page 1BColumbia was led by Courtney Schmitt with a 175 average. Linden Barney averaged 173 and Christine Peters came in with a 169 average. “We return six of our seven girls from state, so we’re expecting big things,” Columbia head coach Brian Saunders said. Fort White was led by Jessica Pollard with a 103.5 average. Harley Morrison finished with a 98 and Taylor Terry had an 87.5.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I just got some shocking news. His father -age 81 -is leaving his wife of 60 years! Mom is not entirely self-sufficient and seems dependent on him. Dad found himself a younger woman -a “chick” of 70. He has announced that he still has sexual needs and wants to enjoy the rest of his life. My husband thinks it will be a short-term fling and he’ll return to Mom, but she says she won’t be tak-ing him back. (Who knows how she’ll feel later?) My problem is, no matter what happens between them, I’m having a hard time even considering forgiving him for his self-ishness. I know it’s not my place as his daughter-in-law, but I don’t know how I can bring myself to face him feeling as I do. Any words of wisdom? -JUDGMENTAL JUDY IN ARIZONA DEAR JUDGMENTAL JUDY: I do have a few. If your mother-in-law hasn’t already done so, make sure she gets the best legal advice possible. After 60 years of marriage, there should be plenty of assets to split. They will make her financially independent, and from that, emotional independence will fol-low. Do not count her out as a weak sister just yet because she appears to be stronger than you think. While it’s possible your father-in-law may want to reunite after the fling, it is equally possible that when the “chick” sees his nest egg is cracked in half, he will be less appealing to her. Only time will tell. In the meantime, keep the peace, bide your time, and as tempting as it may be to voice everything that’s on your mind, keep your lip zipped. This isn’t your marriage, so don’t stir the pot. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have been married to “Tom,” the love of my life, for four years. We have been together more than 10 years and have a 2-year-old daughter. Tom was diagnosed with a terminal illness early last year and is close to the end now. He’s very angry, which I understand, but he takes it out on me since I am his caregiver. I’m also a full-time student about to graduate with my degree in registered nursing, so I’m busy all the time. Between school, my daughter and giving full care to my husband, I’m stressed out. He yells a lot about everything, from money woes to the wrong bread on his sandwich. To top it off, we haven’t been intimate since our daugh-ter was born. I’m not considering straying from our mar-riage, but at times I feel I’ll be ready to date as soon as he’s gone. It makes me feel guilty. Is it wrong to feel this way? Do you have any advice to help me through this tragic time in our lives? -DEPRESSED AND LONELY IN MICHIGAN DEAR DEPRESSED: Yes. Stop beating yourself up for experiencing human emotions at a time when you’re hauling a load that would crush an ox. Of COURSE your husband is angry. He has good reason to be -but he’s misdirect-ing it on you. Guilt is the last thing you need to add to what you’re dealing with. It’s normal to crave the close-ness you haven’t experi-enced in two years. If there are counseling services offered at your nursing school, please avail yourself of them. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Not everyone will share information. Listen carefully and observe what those around you are doing. It will be important to stay in the loop if you want to reach your goals. An interesting partner-ship will develop from an inquiry. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Pick and choose your arguments and make sure you know what you are talking about before you engage in a conversation. Sticking to doing what you do best and saying little for the time being will bring the best results. Emotional deception is apparent. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You won’t see what’s going on around you clearly. Your emotions will supersede practical-ity, resulting in trouble at work and with those you count on for help. Keep life and the things you do simple. Avoid overdoing it. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t hold back; clear the air, even if it means you’ll have to face adver-sity. It’s better to know where you stand and who is by your side at the end of the day. Communication, travel and lifestyle changes are all prevalent. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Live life your way, and don’t pick fights with those who don’t do or feel the same way you do. Gravitate toward the people who do share your sentiments and are striving to make the same improve-ments as you, and you will find strength. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Pick and choose your friends wisely. You may be attracted to someone for the wrong reasons. Don’t let emotional deception lead to a problem. Mixing business with pleasure may entice you, but it will not be practical or produc-tive. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Mixed emotions will surface over money mat-ters and past relationships. Leave the past behind you and look to new opportuni-ties that will enhance your chance to be successful. A change in the com-pany you keep will pay off. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Rely on your intuition and you will make good personal and creative choices. A chance to make money is available, but will only happen if you adjust what and the way you invest. Support your ideas and believe in what you do. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Avoid seri-ous pursuits that are not clearly defined. You will end up running in circles if you believe everything you hear. Stop and decipher what it is you actually want and who is leading you astray. Don’t take chances. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Learn from the past. Expose what hasn’t worked and remember who may have gotten in your way. Do not make the same mistake twice when there is so much to gain by relying on what you know from the experience you have encountered. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Don’t let anger show your weakness. Concentrate on improve-ment and getting the most out of whatever you pur-sue. Fixing up your resi-dence or expanding your circle of friends will lead to greater options. Love is on the rise. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Follow your intuition, but don’t overreact, overdo or overspend. Not every-one will tell you the truth, and it’s up to you to decide what is fact and what is fiction. Be true to your beliefs and standards first and foremost. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

The Tigers won consec utive state titles in 199496 under Pruitts brother, Robby Pruitt. Union County also was state runner-up in 1974 and 2003. Union County lost 17 players from last years team, including four who were first-team all-state. Everybody is getting up for us and were not as strong, and that combination is putting us in a battle every week, Pruitt said. Losing players hurts, especially at this level. There are things weve got to get better at, and we have got to stop shooting ourselves in the foot. The losses did not deter the voters, who made Union County No. 1 in preseason and for the first three weeks of the regular season. It looked like a solid choice as the Tigers shut out visiting Fernandina Beach High (19-0) and Interlachen High (42-0) in the first two games. Mabrey rushed for 115 yards against the Pirates and Prince Alexander added 92 yards and scored a touchdown. Quarterback Chandler Mann threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Princeton Alexander. Geordyn Green scored on a 34-yard punt return. Against Interlachen, Prince Alexanders 112 yards rushing included touchdown runs of 56 and 24 yards. He also scored on a 102-yard interception return. Mann had touch down passes to Daquin Edwards (72 yards), Talon Tyler and Mabrey. The Tigers first trip on the road proved to be a challenge. Keystone Heights High and Union County were score less at the half. The Indians went up 7-0 before Union County scored on a 49-yard run by Green with 8:49 left in the game. Prince Alexander (20 carries, 103 yards) bulled in for the winning two-point conversion. Last week, Union County hosted Chiefland High and held the visitors off, 12-6, in a District 7-1A game. Chiefland entered this sea son on a 23-game losing streak and had won its first three games. Edwards rushed for 75 yards and a touchdown, and Mann threw a 22-yard touch down pass to Dylan Clark. Union County returns allstate defensive tackle Carl Alexander. Carl doesnt have a lot of height, but he is strong and fast for his size, Pruitt said. Offensive linemen Laris Paige and Tyler are back, as is Austin Dukes who has moved over to defense.
