By DAVID ESPO andSTEVE PEOPLESAssociated PressHEMPSTEAD, N.Y. An aggressive President Barack Obama accused challenger Mitt Romney of favoring a one-point plan to help the rich and leveling offensive criticism about the recent deadly ter-rorist attack in Libya Tuesday night in a debate crackling with energy and emotion just three weeks before the election. Romney pushed back hard, saying the middle class has been crushed over the last four years, that 23 million Americans are struggling to find work and that the death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya was part of an unraveling of the administrations foreign policy. The president was feistier from the outset than he had been in their initial encounter two weeks ago, when he turned in a listless performance that sent shudders through his sup-porters and helped fuel a rise by Romney in opinion polls nationally and in some battle-ground states. Obama challenged Romney on economics and energy pol-icy, accusing him of switching positions and declaring that his economic plan was a sketchy deal that the public should reject. Romney gave as good as he got. Youll get your chance in a moment. Im still speaking, the former Massachusetts gov-ernor said at one point while Obama was mid-sentence. He said the presidents poli-cies had failed to jumpstart the economy and crimped energy production. The open-stage format left the two men free to stroll freely across a red-carpeted stage, and they did. Their clashes crackled with energy and ten-sion, and the crowd watched raptly as the two sparred while struggling to appear calm and affable before a national televi-sion audience. The rivals disagreed about taxes, measures to reduce the deficit, energy, pay equity for women and health care issues.

There is no cost to apply. The CPA is like the academy used to train police officers. Participants will learn a variety of law enforce-ment topics and are armed after graduation with knowledge that can be used to assist the com-munity in becoming a safer and a better place to live. Graduates will be honored at a ceremony at the completion of the program and will also be eligible to join the CPA Alumni Association.

Dorothy Thompson, American journalist (189401961) Beyonce set for Super Bowl halftime NEW YORK A ll the single ladies will be watching the upcoming Super Bowl along with football lovers. Thats because Beyonce is the halftime show performer. A source familiar with the Super Bowl told The Associated Press the Grammy-winning diva will take the stage at the halftime show on Feb. 3 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because that person wasnt authorized to publicly reveal the information. The official announcement is expected Wednesday, the source said. Beyonce, whose pop and R&B hits include Crazy in Love, Irreplaceable and Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It), has won 16 Grammy Awards. The 31-year-old sang the national anthem at the 2004 Super Bowl in her hometown of Houston when the New England Patriots defeated the Carolina Panthers. Madonna performed at halftime at this years Super Bowl in February with guests CeeLo Green, Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and M.I.A.

Her performance was seen by 114 mil lion people, a higher average than the game itself, which was seen by an estimated 111.3 million people, according to the Nielsen Co. Elton John remembers Ryan White at AIDS gala NEW YORK On the red carpet of his annual AIDS foundation ben efit Monday night, Sir Elton John remembered AIDS sufferer Ryan White. The 65-year-old musician said dealing with the teenagers death was a major turning point in his life, which at the time was out of whack. Six months after Ryan died, I decided that was it, John said. And with in a year of becom ing sober, he begin thinking about start ing a foundation and giving something back and making up for lost time. White contracted AIDS in 1984 after a blood transfusion for his hemophilia. Once diagnosed, he was expelled from middle school and became a poster child for young people afflicted with the disease. John was with the boy and his family when he died in 1990. While great strides are being made in research and behavior, John said we have a long way to go. The stigma involved in people coming out and saying theyre HIVpositive is still an underground thing, its still a shame-based thing until we can get everybody tested and people to come out and be role models to people who have HIV, then were still battling against this disease, John said.

By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Floridas two incoming legislative leaders vow to make sweeping changes to the states much-maligned eth ics laws. Both Sen. Don Gaetz and Rep. Will Weatherford said on Tuesday that they are ready to make a string of changes to laws govern ing everything from conflict of interests to campaign accounts used by legislators. The two men are scheduled to become Senate president and House speaker in November. Gaetz said he wants to toughen conflict-of-interest rules for legis lators and make it easier for the public to see financial disclosure forms by placing them online. He also wants to bar elected officials from taking jobs that rely on government funding and look at banning legislators from opening up separate campaign accounts that have few limits on how the money is spent. I think that we ought to raise the standards of ethical conduct in the Legislature and among public officials in general, Gaetz said. Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, issued a statement in which he agreed that the changes would be a priority for the House. Its good news for Florida that House and Senate leadership are in agreement that there is a need for meaningful campaign finance and ethics reform, he stated. A statewide grand jury in December 2010 issued a blistering report on corruption, citing exam ples where prosecutions could not go forward because of loopholes in existing laws, or because no one was taking action. The grand jury also faulted legislators for fail ing to enact previous recommen dations, including suggestions from a task force put together by former Gov. Jeb Bush. Yet attempts to make changes earlier this year ran into fierce opposition from veteran leg islators who say some of the reforms are overreaching and assume legislators are engaged in wrongdoing. An ethics bill that sought to ban Florida legislators from working at colleges and univer sities was shot down by a state Senate panel. The proposal was made in response to a scandal involv ing former House Speaker Ray Sansom, who was hired for a sixfigure job at Northwest Florida State College on the same day he became speaker back in 2008. Gaetz said he has not yet fleshed out a concrete proposal but he wants to prevent a legisla tor who has control over budget issues to get a job with a school or college after they are already in the Legislature. He said he doesnt want to prevent a school teacher from being able to run for office. Legislative leaders also said that the GOP-controlled Legislature may overhaul cam paign finance laws by banning, or restricting, the use of special campaign accounts that legisla tors now use. These accounts known as committees of continuous existence can accept unlim ited donations and there are few restraints on the use of the money. They are separate from accounts that legislators use to pay for their own personal cam paigns. Legislators have used these committees to give money to other campaigns or to help secure a leadership position. But some legislators have used these accounts for a long list of expens es, including travel and meals. I think there has been in the past some abuse of CCEs in terms of people not using them for direct political purposes, Gaetz said. Gaetz, however, added that the possible end of these committees should coincide with an increase in the donation limit to person al campaigns. Florida law caps donations to campaign accounts at $500. Gaetz also says he is willing to consider proposals being pushed by the Florida Commission on Ethics. The panel wants to make it easier for the commission to launch investigations into unethi cal conduct. Currently, the com mission cannot launch an inves tigation unless someone files a formal complaint.

The memo from Obama Florida Director Ashley Walker points to a closing of a gap in absentee voting and gains made in voter registration since Obama beat Republican nominee John McCain in 2008. In 2008, Republicans built up a huge advan tage in vote-by-mail which Democrats obliterated dur ing in-person early vote to win the state by 3 per centage points. In 2012, Republicans have a much more difficult task ahead since they have already ceded two-thirds of the vote-by-mail advantage they started with four years ago, Walker wrote. While more Republicans are requesting and returning absentee bal lots, Walker noted that the margin is far smaller than it was four years ago. This year, just more than 900,000 Republicans have requested absentee ballots, compared to nearly 834,000 Democrats, or a difference of more than 61,000. But at the same point before the 2008 election, the dif ference in requested bal lots favored Republicans by about 250,000. Still, Obama won in-per son early voting by a large margin. This year, how ever, the Republican-led Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott shortened early voting from 14 days to eight days, which puts more pressure on the Obama campaign to emphasize absentee voting. Its doing so by encourag ing supporters to request absentee ballots in person and fill them out and turn them in on the spot. Florida has 29 electoral votes, the most of any state thats considered a tos sup. Republicans acknowl edge that without Florida, Romney has little chance of winning the presidency. Walkers memo also highlighted voter registra tion efforts, saying that the campaign never left Florida after the 2008 eight win and has trained 20,000 people to register voters. She pointed to increases in black and Hispanic voters, noting that Hispanics have been reg istering as Democrats in far larger numbers than as Republicans. The Romney campaign pointed out that theres only one number that matters, and thats the difference in overall voter registration from 2008. There are almost 89,000 more Republicans now than there were four years ago, while the num ber of Florida Democrats has dropped by more than 94,000. Overall, Florida has almost 4.2 million Republicans and more than 4.6 million Democrats. The numbers dont lie. So they can talk about hustling and we can talk about hustling and the fact is that theres one number that matters, Doster said, pointing to the difference in overall voter registration. Were still ahead. Doster said that when he ran President George W. Bushs Florida re-elec tion campaign, it set the standard for voter outreach efforts. He acknowledged that Obama built on the Bush model in 2008 and surpassed it by making better use of new technol ogy. But he said Romneys efforts this year are just as strong and Obama has a disadvantage. Legislative leaders vow ethics reforms Senator, House member agree time changes be made. Florida News Teen stabs girl outside school ORLANDO Authorities say a central Florida teen stabbed his girlfriend in the neck at school. Orlando police said the 17-year-old boy attacked his 17-year-old girlfriend with a pocket knife in a park ing lot at Dr. Phillips High School Tuesday morning. Police said the couple was arguing when the boy stabbed his girlfriend and then stabbed himself. The Orlando Sentinel reported that both teens were taken to a nearby hospital, where they were expected to recover. The boy is facing charg es of attempted murder and aggravated battery with a weapon under the dating violence statute. Man sentenced in fatal shooting GAINESVILLE A north Florida man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for his part in a fatal shooting. An Alachua County judge sentenced 20year-old Simeon Demps Tuesday. He pleaded guilty earlier this month to acces sory to murder after the fact. Authorities say Demps drove the getaway car after 18-year-old Dontavious Copeland fatally shot 15year-old Jearicka Mack outside a party in May 2011. A jury found Copeland guilty of first-degree mur der on Oct. 5, and his sen tencing is scheduled for next week. Achievement gap unacceptable TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott says an achieve ment gap in Floridas strategic plan for public schools is unacceptable. The governor on Tuesday issued a state ment calling for the State Board of Education to more completely recog nize the states goal is to completely close the gap between minority and white students. Board chairman Gary Chartrand also released a statement saying he asked the Department of Education to include a footnote in the plan. It will say the states overall goal is 100 percent proficiency for all students. But Chartrand noted the board had to acknowledge in the five-year plan that each ethnic group has a different starting point. The plan calls for nar rowing but not completely closing that gap for black and Hispanic students by the 2017-18 school year. I think that we ought to raise the standards of ethical conduct in the Legislature and among public officials in general. State Sen.

S uccessive generations of White House staffs and newspaper edi-tors relearn the same hard lesson: Dont get ahead of the facts. The initial White House reaction to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, which cost the lives of our ambassador and three others, was that it was a spontane-ous response to an amateur-ish video made in the United States that purportedly ridi-culed Islam. The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, amplified that explanation five days later in a round of talk shows. But Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said the White House knew within 24 hours that it was an orchestrated attack by a terrorist militia, one possibly affiliated with al-Qaida. If it was a deliberate misrepresentation, as Graham charg-es, it was a dumb idea -not that dumb ideas are unknown in Washington because the details were bound to leak out over time. The White House may have been afraid of losing con-trol of what is now called in Washington-speak the narra-tive and, with the FBI unable to get to the ruined consulate for three weeks, unwilling to wait for all the facts to begin emerging. Unfortunately for the truth and possibility of preventing a recurrence, this controversy comes at a time when politics colors everything. To put the worst possible face on it, the GOP may have been trying to take down Rice, a rising star in the Obama administration and a rumored successor to Hillary Clinton, and to tarnish an Obama suc-cess, the overthrow of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi. Republicans derided the plan until the day Gadhafi was finally killed. Republicans blamed the White House for ignor-ing clear warnings of an imminent attack; the White House responded that the Republicans had cut $300 million in diplomatic security funding. None of this sparring is at all helpful. It is the responsibility of the host country to protect foreign diplomats and embas-sies, but thats difficult in the extreme in countries that have no governments or, in the case of Libya, not much of one. As a practical matter, the U.S. cannot retreat into for-tress-like embassies; that defeats the whole purpose of having wingtips on the ground, so to speak the attaches, the specialists and, yes, the spooks who are eyes and ears in for-eign countries. Unfortunately, a certain amount of risk comes with being a foreign service offi-cer in unsettled parts of the world, risks that the diplomats, like their military counter-parts, know going in. Those four Americans who died in Benghazi, and especially Ambassador Chris Stevens, were heroes. Benghazi facts get in the way of politics ANOTHER VIEW HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY On this date:In 1610, French King Louis XIII, age nine, was crowned at Reims, five months after the assassination of his father, Henry IV. In 1711, Jupiter Hammon, the first black poet to have his work published in America, was born on Long Island, N.Y., into a life-time of slavery. In 1807, Britain declared it would continue to reclaim British-born sailors from American ships and ports regardless of whether they held U.S. citizenship. In 1912, Pope John Paul I was born Albino Luciani at Forno di Canale, Italy. In 1931, mobster Al Capone was convicted of income tax evasion. (Sentenced to 11 years in prison, Capone was released in 1939.) In 1933, Albert Einstein arrived in the United States as a refugee from Nazi Germany. In 1973, Arab oil-producing nations announced they would begin cutting back oil exports. F irst Lady Michelle Obama said the other day that America is in a huge recovery because of what her husband has done, and what Id advise is that she get a pair of binoculars and look out a White House window. She just might observe more of the desperately poor wan-dering around than shes seen before, and that would not be by accident. A Washington Post story reports that family homeless-ness in Washington, D.C., is up by 18 percent since last year. The recession ended in late 2009. The recovery, mugged by a pork-ridden stimulus and a malicious gang of other miscon-ceived policies, is limping along more weakly than any recovery since World War II. The result is suffering in almost every direc-tion you look. Those hurt the most are often those who had the least to begin with. Some 46.2 million Americans are now below the poverty line. And, it might be noted by Democrats claiming a Republican war on women, the poverty rate among them is a very scary 16.3 percent. The middle class has also taken a crippling hit a medi-an income drop from $54,983 when President Barack Obama took office to $50,964 this year. As others have written, the median has decreased more during the Obama recovery than it did during the recession the president has blamed on his predecessor. Welfare has meanwhile been going up, with expenditure increases of something like $193 billion a year under Obama. The crying need is for something that would make the welfare less necessary: jobs. Some 14.7 percent of Americans are looking for jobs but cant find them or have settled for part-time jobs when they want full-time employment. The $831 billion stimulus was supposed to help fix this, but the tons of money produced maybe an ounce of temporary relief while contributing to employment-impeding debt. The stimulus came up in the vice presidential debate when Republican candidate Paul Ryan pointed to $90 billion in green pork to campaign contributors and special interest groups. An Associated Press fact checker concurred that $528 million went to the Solyndra solar-panel firm that was politically con-nected and went bankrupt. The reporter went on to say, however, that there was also energy stimulus help for such things as making homes more energy efficient and to public entities constructing high-speed rail lines. Excuse me, but more recipients of grants and loans than just Solyndra had political con-nections and went under, and inspectors said the program to weatherize homes was poorly executed in many instances, even to the point of endanger-ing lives. High-speed rail is pork to states and has nothing to do with stimulating the economy in the here and now. According to an article in the New Yorker magazine, these projects were pushed by Obama because he was looking for something bold and iconic his version of the Hoover Dam. Looking ahead to solutions, the Obama administration is counting on what it has sometimes called a tax on mil-lionaires, which turns out to be a raised tax on incomes of $250,000 and more for married couples. That could be a teacher and a cop in high-pay places like New York City, writes Michael Tanner of Cato Institute. The tax would produce about two-thirds less revenue than whats needed to meet Obamas planned spending hikes next year, he writes. I like the first lady, and I dont blame her for applauding her husband, but for a less partial view, check in with someone like Mortimer Zuckerman, a media owner and real estate whiz of the kind who produces jobs. He was for Obama in 2008, thinks he has done more popu-list pandering than leading as president, and rates the recov-ery as something we have to recover from. The recovery that wasnt LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:Once again I am troubled by the blatant disregard train operators have for the people who have to put up with con-tinuous horn blasts at all hours of the night. I have contacted CSX over seven times, as well as City Code Enforcement with less than favorable results. Basically, the Citys hands are tied and CSX has final say on all maters concerning their inter-nal affairs. The first two times I called, CSX responded with official letters. The first letter states that the Federal Railroad Administration train horn rule requires four whistles at all crossings; two long, one short and one long. If the train operators followed this code then the horns at the intersections would not be a problem. Very few operators follow the code and often signal excessively at random. The other issue is the continuous sounding of train horns when the train has already passed through the intersection. On several occasions I have even heard train horns sound-ing all the way through town where no intersections exist. The time of day, from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. when people are sleeping, is the major problem. Overall the real issue here is the lack of respect that CSX train operators have for the people of Lake City. Over 75 percent of the town lives less than a mile of a rail road crossing. I am appealing to the people of Lake City once again.

Californians have set the pace for adopting the trendy lifestyle choice but recently have cried out for relief when confronted with the true cost of saving the planet from global warm-ing. As new evidence emerges about extraterrestrial forces that shape Earths climate, Americans from coast to coast may come to a similar realiza-tion of the futility of trying to bring down temperatures before their bank accounts dry up. Golden State residents bear some of the nations highest energy prices, and for a simple reason. Sacramento bureau-crats force refiners to produce gasoline according to a special California-specific recipe that enables the left-coasters to claim theyre far greener than their neighbors. When a fire took out a key oil refinery, sup-ply dried up and prices soared to near $6 a gallon because other states couldnt ship their surplus petrol to meet the rising demand. Public anger forced Gov. Jerry Brown to relent and allow remaining California refineries to make an early switch from boutique summer blends to an easier-to-produce winter mix. As a result, the fuel supply has eased and pump prices have peaked, though they still average around $4.57 a gallon a full dollar more than Texans pay. A new theory adds to the growing body of science indi-cating that Earths temperature patterns are governed by forces far greater than the impact of the combustion of gas in motor vehicles and the burning of other fossil fuels to power mod-ern civilization. Not surprising-ly, also crucial to climate is that white-hot orb in the sky, the sun. Research indicates cyclical sunspot activity produces fluc-tuations in radiation intensity, which cause Earths tempera-tures to rise and fall.

Obama had failed to pursue the comprehensive legis-lation he promised at the dawn of his administration, and the president saying Republican obstinacy made a deal impossible. Under the format agreed to in advance, members of an audience of 82 uncom-mitted voters posed questions to the president and his challenger. Nearly all of them concerned domestic policy until one raised the sub-ject of the recent death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya in a terrorist attack at an American post in Benghazi. Romney said it took Obama a long time to admit the episode had been a ter-rorist attack, but Obama said he had said so the day after in an appearance in the Rose Garden outside the White House. When moderator Candy Crowley of CNN said the president had in fact done so, Obama, prompted, Say that a little louder, Candy. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has taken respon-sibility for the death of Ambassador L. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, but Obama said bluntly, Im the president and Im always responsi-ble. Romney said it was troubling that Obama contin-ued with a campaign event in Las Vegas on the day after the attack in Libya, an event he said had sym-bolic significance and per-haps even material signifi-cance. Obama seemed to bristle. He said it was offensive for anyone to allege that he or anyone in his adminis-tration had used the inci-dent for political purposes. Thats not what I do.

By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is refusing to back down in her feud with the GOP-controlled Legislature when it comes to $300 million intended to help homeowners. Bondi this week turned in her 2013 budget request to state legislators. She asked for various items including money for a new telephone system and money to hire more appeals attorneys. But she did not ask leg islators to give her spend ing approval for the states share of a national $25 bil lion settlement with five of the nations largest mort gage lenders. The move means that the fate of the money remains in limbo with no clear sign of when the state will begin spending it. Floridas share of the landmark settlement is separate from an estimated $8 billion that is expected to go to help homeown ers and borrowers in the state. The settlement was finalized in early April. But since that time, Bondi has not announced any plans on how the states share of the money would be spent. Bondi has asserted that her office can spend the money without legislative approval. Legislative lead ers, however, continue to insist that the Legislature has the power to make spending decisions. Bondi has insisted that she just wants the money to go to help those impacted by the foreclosure crisis. Hopefully we will able to have a resolution soon because homeowners need that relief, she said earlier this month. Im working Im hard as I can. This money needs to go to hom eowners. Thats where it was meant to go and thats where it should go. Rep. Denise Grimsley, RLake Wales and top budget writer in the House, said in a statement that she was hopeful an agreement will be reached soon. We believe the Legislature has a role to play and we expect to have more details as soon as an agreement is reached, said Grimsley. State agencies were required this week to turn in their 2013 spending requests as well as a list of potential cuts to leg islators. The requests will be the framework used by both Gov. Rick Scott and the Legislature when drawing up a final budget next spring. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 17, 2012 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 6A SPIRITS ON THE SUWANNEE Firday & Saturday, October 26 & 27 7pm 11pm Live Oak, FL www.

By KELLI KENNEDY Associated Press MIAMI Floridas Republican-led Legislature put Amendment 1 on the upcoming ballot as a mora torium on President Barack Obamas health care plan, but it will have little legal impact. Still, its backers say its passage would send a strong political message that the people of Florida dont like the plan they call Obamacare. The proposal would pro hibit state laws compelling any person or employer to purchase, obtain or other wise provide health care coverage. It was drafted by conservative state Republicans before the U.S. Supreme Court ruling last June that upheld the Affordable Care Act and it has received little attention or funding. Like all amend ments on the Nov. 6 bal lot, it requires a 60 percent favorable vote to pass. Conservatives say it would put the state on record as opposed to the presidents plan and pre vent the state from imple menting a Massachusettslike health care law in the future, but liberals allege its nothing more than a tac tic using a hot-button issue to drive Republican turnout for a lackluster presidential candidate. Similar propos als are cropping up in a handful of other states. I think its a misguided attempt to scare people and its purpose is to mobilize anti-Obama supporters to go to the polls, said Ethan Rome, executive director of Health Care for America Now, a liberal advocacy group. He said similar ini tiatives have been proposed in Alabama, Wyoming and Montana. Supporters say it would send a message that Congress overstepped its authority when passing the Affordable Care Act in 2010, which allows the IRS to fine those who cannot show they are covered by an employer, government program or their own poli cy starting in 2014. Republican Senate President Mike Haridopolos, who intro duced the proposal, said when the amendment passed that its about free dom. The measure would ensure that individuals are allowed to choose the kind of health care coverage they want, not what the fed eral government mandates, he said. Lawmakers tried to get a similar measure on the bal lot in 2010, but their efforts were squashed when the Florida Supreme Court ruled its summary was inaccurate, misleading and might confuse voters. Gov. Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi and other Republican lawmak ers fueled a new effort after they were elected two years ago. Scott has fre quently spoken out against the health care law and has forbid state agencies from accepting federal money tied to the law. Bondi made fighting the federal health law the centerpiece of her election campaign. Haridopolos said the lan guage that the high court found unacceptable has been removed from the new ballot summary. The Sunshine State has not fostered a friendly cli mate for the federal health law. Former Florida Republican Attorney General Bill McCollum filed a lawsuit declaring the federal health law unconsti tutional just minutes after Obama signed the 10-year, $938 billion health care bill into law. He chose a court in Pensacola, one of Floridas most conservative cities. More than two dozen other states also joined the suit. Experts say its unlikely the amendment will get 60 percent. Proposed health care amendment has no teeth Critics say it is anti-Obama political ploy. AG Bondi not budging on settlement fund use Teen accused of school plot pleads TAMPA A Tampa Bay area teen has pleaded no contest to plotting to blow up his high school last year. Jared Cano, 18, pleaded no contest Tuesday to charges of threatening to discharge a destructive device and attempting to discharge a destructive device with intention to harm. His sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 5. Associated Press Associated Press MIAMI A federal appeals court wont quick ly review a challenge to Floridas plan to purge almost 200 voters from the rolls because they are noncitizens. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision Tuesday will leave the legal fight for after the Nov. 6 election. Two Florida fed eral judges have ruled that the planned purge of 198 non-citizens can go forward despite claims it violates a federal law against remov ing voters within 90 days of an election. The judges decided the 90-day doesnt apply to noncitizens. Most supervisors of elections have said the removal process would run past Election Day anyway. The state originally sought to purge some 2,600 names but encoun tered inaccuracies. The revised list of 198 names of possible non-citizens was produced through a Homeland Security Department citizenship database. No quick review of voter purge case

Fernandina Beach has made three trips to the state playoffs 1970, 1995 and 2007. The Pirates are 0-3 in their playoff games. single week. Because of that, Allen said the Tigers have pre-pared for Middleburg like it is the best team Columbia will face all season. Were keeping the pads on during practice, Allen said. Last year, we cut down the reps at this point during weightlifting in the mornings. Were not doing that yet. Were watching their bodies and making an assessment about where we are. Right now, were going to continue the grind. We just have to be where we need to be mentally to finish. Right now, Allen feels the Tigers are at a good posi-tion with their mental focus, but that the key is keep-ing it there throughout the remainder of the grind. The good thing is that we are coming off a bye week and we were grinding throughout until the bye, Allen said. We were totally away from the game and hopefully that helped with their mental stimulation. Now, we have to prepare for this possible nine-game grind. Allen has the Tigers believing in a possible run at the playoffs, but the next three games will play a big role in where Columbia plays its playoff games. After Middleburg the Tigers will have games against Orange Park and Leon high schools looking to close out the district race. Were gearing up for a big push that could go to the big dance, Allen said. The big thing is we dont want to overwhelm these 16-, 17and 18-year-old kids. You look and we can play more games than a college team. We have to keep it where it doesnt feel too militaristic. Thats why Allen felt it was key to give the Tigers off two days last week. But he still feels the team is ahead of the game due to planning during the bye week. The advantage of the bye week is weve already broke down the film, Allen said. Hallie Stringellow had 32 assists to lead the team in assists. She also had two kills. Arianna House had two kills. Passing killed us in all three matches, Fort White head coach Tiffany Bratcher. Leah had the best game all the way around. Her and Hallie tried to keep everyone positive. Fort White fell to 5-13 on the season and will play in the Newberry High tourna-ment beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday. Columbia is 14-4 on the season and travels to Oak Hall at 6 p.m. today. In the junior varsity game, Columbia defeat-ed Fort White 25-12 and 25-18. Hayes Fulford led the Lady Tigers JV with six aces and three kills. Lacey King had four kills. Columbias junior varsity is 11-1.Tigers golfColumbia Highs season came to an end in the district tournament as the Tigers finished sixth out of seven teams. Lynn Haven Mosely High won the tournament with a 297, while the Tigers shot a respectable 322. Columbia will send one player on to the regional tournament at Seminole Country Club in Tallahassee on Tuesday, however, as Dean Soucinek advanced after shooting a 76. It wasnt easy for Soucinek, however, as he had to go through five playoff holes to advance. Dean is my only senior and hes had playoff experi-ence in the last two matches with Buchholz, Columbia head coach Steve Smithy said. I think it really ben-efitted him. As my only senior, Im happy to see him advance to regionals. Nick Jones and Luke Soucinek both carded 81s for the Tigers. Tim Bagley and Dillan VanVleck round-ed out the scoring with 84 and 85, respectively. Jeremy Senterfitt carded a 3-under 69 to win the tournaments medalist honors.

Parker/Walker win Rountree Childrens Mircle Network Tournament a success Lattimore back at practice for USCAssociated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says Marcus Lattimore hasnt missed any practice time and expects the tailback to play despite his bruised hip. The coach had said Lattimore would miss a cou-ple of practices this week after being hurt in the Gamecocks 23-21 loss at LSU last Saturday. However, Spurrier said Tuesday Lattimore ran during Mondays practice. The ninth-ranked Gamecocks (6-1, 4-1 SEC) play at No. 3 Florida (6-0, 5-0) Saturday. South Carolina has won 12 straight games over SEC Eastern Division opponents, including the past two against Florida. Lattimore rushed for 212 yards and three touch-downs in South Carolinas victory at The Swamp two years ago. No. 3 Florida winning with one-dimensional offenseBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE No. 3 Florida is making balanced offense seem overrated. The Gators are last in the Southeastern Conference in passing, averaging a mere 145 yards a game at a time when throwing the football is as fashionable as alternate uniforms. And its not because theyre run-ning the triple option or the Wing T. Nope, the Gators are simply sticking with what works best getting the most out of a shifty run-ning back, a fleet-footed quarterback and a physical offensive line that tends to get better the longer its on the field. Although the close-tothe-vest, grind-it-out style has carried Florida to its highest ranking in three years, it also has created a perception that the Gators (6-0, 5-0) are vulnerable heading into Saturdays game against No. 9 South Carolina (6-1, 4-1). What if the Gamecocks, who rank fourth in the league in rushing defense, shut down Floridas seem-ingly one-dimensional attack? What if Florida gets behind early? Could the Gators survive costly turnovers? I didnt realize we were last in passing, but were first in the East, quarterback Jeff Driskel said. Thats all that mat-ters. Were undefeated. We havent dropped a game yet. If youre win-ning, everythings all right. Obviously we got to get better in the passing game, but were winning games. Thats all that matters. The Gators have used stingy defense and stellar second-half performances to climb up the polls. They have trailed in five of six games this season, been down at halftime in three and never really looked like one of the best teams in the country. Its clear that Florida has become exactly what Muschamp promised from Day 1 a tough, physi-cal team that outworks its opponents and does what-ever it takes to win games. Call them the orange and blue-collared Gators. It should be no surprise that the Bowl Championship Series computers unbi-ased machines that rank teams based on compli-cated algorithms and dont see a single down love Florida. Others have their doubts, believing its dif-ficult to maintain success in this day and age while completing just 13 passes a game. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease, who came to Gainesville after six sea-sons at Boise State, wants to be more balanced. But he also makes it clear that if his offense continues giv-ing opponents fits on the ground, hes going to stick with it. When we go in and hit 10 explosive plays, the bottom line is run them again, Pease said. Run them again, OK. Lets not get greedy here as a coach and say, I dont like that. Im throwing the ball because thats what we all love to do. Mike Gillislee ranks second in the SEC in rushing, averaging 102 yards a game. Sophomore Jeff Driskel has just four touchdown passes, but hes completing nearly 67 percent of his passes and has just two turnovers. He also has 326 yards rushing and four scores, including a school-record 177 yards and three TDs on the ground last week at Vanderbilt. And the offen-sive line, which raised eye-brows when coaches called it the strength of the team, has held its own against some formidable fronts. Throw in Floridas stout defense and two of the best specialists in the nation punter Kyle Christy and place-kicker Caleb Sturgis and its hard to argue when Muschamp and Pease pass on passing. If Jeff Driskel can carry the ball 70 yards and out-run everybody, hes getting the ball, Pease said. If Mike Gillislee can get the ball and outrun everybody, hes getting the ball. And if our O-line blocks like they block, were giving them the ball. Im not going to be stubborn as far as playing off numbers every week. Im going to do whats best for this team.
DEAR ABBY: My 15year-old stepson, Justin, doesnt drink or do drugs. For the most part, he stays out of trouble. The prob-lem is, he has been caught for the third time having unprotected sex. My anger isnt at Justin so much as at his parents, obviously his father. Justin has lied repeatedly about this. His father lets him get away with many things, for the most part minor. But this is different. A 15-year-old boy cant take care of a baby, and having sex with multiple partners means exposing everyone involved to STDs. My husband is a smart man, but for some reason he seems to think this will end well. I worry about his son becoming a father too soon and missing out on his full potential. My husband and his ex have dealt with this by trying to ignore it, and for the most part I havent involved myself. But the more I think about it, the more I see the danger of Justins life being changed forever because his parents dont want to make him unhappy for a minute. I love my husband and stepson. Allowing this to continue isnt the right path for anyone. Am I overreacting? If not, what can I do that wont cause a huge blowup with my husband? -ALARMED IN CHICAGO DEAR ALARMED: Youre not overreacting. Your husband is doing his son no favors by enabling his irresponsible behavior instead of asserting him-self and acting like a par-ent. Justin may think that fathering a child will make him a real man. But unless your husband can get through to him that REAL men take care of themselves and their part-ners, and REAL men dont risk bringing children into the world they cant take care of, then face it: Hes letting his son play baby roulette, and its only a matter of time until hell be a grandpa. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My son has a wonderful girlfriend, Michelle. They live with my ex-husband and visit my husband, Daryl, and me twice a month and on special occasions. Michelle is sweet, caring, smart and funny. The problem is, she doesnt wear a bra. Ever. Relatives have commented about it to us at family gatherings because shes not flat-chested. We already know. Its obvious. Daryl thinks I should buy Michelle a bra as a subtle hint. I dont think thats wise, and I dont want to offend her. Because it doesnt seem to matter to my son, should we continue to keep our opinions to ourselves? -SEES A NEED FOR SUPPORT IN FLORIDA DEAR SEES A NEED: Because people are talking, it would be a kindness to say some-thing to Michelle -but DELICATELY, so she doesnt think you are criticizing her. If you have a good relationship with her, invite her to join you for lunch, then mention that some of the relatives noticed her bralessness. Then tell her that you need to go lingerie shopping and invite her along. Ask her to help you pick out a few things for yourself, and then offer to treat her to some things she likes. She just may take you up on it. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Ulterior motives must be considered before you make a move. Rethink your strategy and revise any plans you have that are not directly linked to what you want and need to accomplish.

Put your time and effort into self-improvement instead of trying to change others. A lack of trust will develop if you are inconsis-tent. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Utilize your time wise-ly, and strive to boost your ego by doing things that make you look and feel good about who you are and what you accomplish. Socialize or spend quality time with someone special.

A finan-cial situation will develop if you have overspent or miscalculated the cost of something. Travel may beckon you, but if you can-not afford the trip, take a pass. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Caution at home will help protect you from a mishap. Using tools or equipment that you are unfamiliar with will pose a problem. Discuss your plans with someone you respect and youll gather some great ideas that will help you be successful. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your professional goals must take top prior-ity. If you arent serious about what you are doing, you may want to recon-sider your past dreams, hopes and wishes. Being true to you and what you want to do will lead to suc-cess. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Call the shots and make things happen your way. Being unique will attract followers and onlookers. Invest in some-thing you enjoy doing. Personal and professional relationships are looking good. Make a deal, a prom-ise or a vow. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Dont divulge information youve been asked to keep secret. Your reputation will suffer if you are not diplomatic about what you know or see. Concentrate on your per-sonal life. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Youre on the move. Your ability to outmaneuver the competi-tion is outstanding. Speak from the heart and you will encourage others to join your cause. Check references before you put trust in someone who is questionable. Love is high-lighted. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Avoid critical people. Take precautions when discussing touchy subjects. Put greater emphasis on home, fam-ily and the ones you love. Change is upon you, and acceptance will be key to staying calm and allowing the best outcome. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont waste time try-ing to convince skeptics. Focus on the people you can influence and who will help you reach your goals. Love is in the stars and setting a romantic scene will help you improve your personal life. Make travel plans. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

By TONY BRITT email@example.com R ecipes for everything from possum stew to quail seasoning, from tips on making sauce for hot-dogs to a recipe for marriage one local cookbook contains volumes of Columbia Countys secret family recipes. Over the years, local fami lies have developed and passed down recipes from one genera tion to another, and now those recipes have been collected for a local cookbook. The cook book, Cooking With Seniors is a collection of local family reci pes complied by the Columbia County Senior Services staff at the Lifestyle Enrichment Center. Debbie Freeman, Senior Services executive director, said the women who contributed the recipes are wonderful cooks. The cookbook is a celebration of our 40th anniversary of service in Columbia County, she said. The staff and clients at the Lifestyle Enrichment Center decided to make a cookbook with family favorite recipes to celebrate the anniversary. We didnt want anybody to go off the shelf and pull a cook book out, tear a page out and say, Heres a recipe, said David Rountree, enrichment center facility manager. These are prov en family home recipes. Recipes were collected from staff members, clients, ven dors and even local legislators. Cookbook organizers also solic ited a recipe from the White House. We eventually did receive a recipe from the White House (Michelle Obama), but it did not get here in time to make the pub lishing date, Rountree said. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, Columbia County Supervisor of Elections Liz Horne, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter and Gov. Rick Scott contributed recipes to the cookbook. There are an estimated 211 recipes in the cookbook from 60 to 70 contributors. Rountree also said that Norma Pierce and Claudette Mears were two mem bers of the cookbook team who helped make the project a suc cess. The cookbooks categories are: Appetizers and Beverages, Soups and Salads, Vegetables and Side Dishes, Main Dishes, Breads and Rolls, Desserts, Cookies and Candies and This and That. The books title was selected after a book naming contest was won by Darnel Schauer, a client who attends the facility. The cookbooks, which sell for $20 each, went on sale in late August. Only 500 were printed. The cookbooks can be purchased at the Lifestyle Enrichment Center and CC Flowers Villa. Oleatha Harris, 80, a senior ambassador, submitted a collard greens and pound cake recipe. This was a family recipe, she said. I feel real good about con tributing the recipes because now it doesnt matter about my reci pes. Earlier, I had certain recipes that I didnt share with anybody, but with being the age I am now, it doesnt matter. Bernice Brown, who is also a senior ambassador, submitted a recipe for Crazy Cake, which is made with vinegar as one of its ingredients. My daughter lives in Chicago, Ill., and when I went to visit her and her husband, she would make the cake for me, Brown said. She said, Mama, this is what they call a Crazy Cake, and she gave the recipe to me and I tried it and it is so delicious. I dont know who made it, her husband or her, but both of them can cook. Every time I go up there, they make that cake for me. I wanted to put that recipe in the cookbook because it was an exciting cake to me. Marjie Wozniak, a senior ambassador at the LEC, contrib uted nine recipes for the cook book. Wozniak, 70, said shes cooked so much that contribut ing nine recipes was not a prob lem for her since the proceeds would help local programs. I thought it was great to have nine recipes in the cookbook because we all had good recipes, she said, noting it was her first time contributing to a cookbook. I thought we would never get through it. The day we named the cookbook it was exciting because we had to vote on the name. Rountree said proceeds raised from the sale of the cookbooks will be used to fund transporta tion and home delivered meals for center clients. We deliver about 35,000 to 40,000 meals a year, he said. That exercise of transporting those meals individually to cli ents at their home address, with the price of gas, is a very expen sive process.

Local seniors collaborate on cookbook Social Security benefits to go up by 1.7 percent By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press WASHINGTON More than 56 million Social Security recipients will see their monthly payments go up by 1.7 percent next year. The increase, which starts in January, is tied to a measure of inflation released Tuesday. It shows that inflation has been rel atively low over the past year, resulting in one of the smallest increases in Social Security payments since automatic adjustments were adopted in 1975. This year, Social Security recipients received a 3.6 percent increase in benefits after getting none the pre vious two years. About 8 million people who receive Supplemental Security Income will also receive the cost-of-liv ing adjustment, or COLA, meaning the announce ment will affect about 1 in 5 U.S. residents. Social Security payments for retired workers average $1,237 a month, or about $14,800 a year. A 1.7 per cent increase will amount to about $21 a month, or $252 a year, on average. Social Security also pro vides benefits to millions of disabled workers, spouses, widows, widowers and chil dren. The amount of wages subjected to Social Security taxes is going up, too. Social Security is support ed by a 12.4 percent tax on wages up to $110,100. That threshold will increase to $113,700 next year, result ing in higher taxes for near ly 10 million workers and their employers, accord ing to the Social Security Administration. Half the tax is paid by workers and the other half is paid by employers. Congress and President Barack Obama reduced the share paid by workers from 6.2 percent to 4.2 per cent for 2011 and 2012. The temporary cut, however, is due to expire at the end of the year. Some of next years COLA could be wiped out by higher Medicare premi ums, which are deducted from Social Security pay ments. The Medicare Part B premium, which covers doctor visits, is expected to rise by about $7 per month for 2013, according to gov ernment projections. The premium is cur rently $99.90 a month for most seniors. Medicare is expected to announce the premium for 2013 in the coming weeks. If seniors are getting a low COLA, much of their increase will go to pay off their Medicare Part B pre mium, said Mary Johnson, ASSOCIATED PRESS Blank Social Security checks run through printers at the U.S. Treasurys Financial Management services facility in Philadelphia. Social Security recipients shouldnt expect a big increase in monthly benefits come January. Preliminary figures show the annual benefit boost will be between 1 percent and 2 percent, which would be among the lowest since automatic adjustments were adopted in 1975. COLA continued on 2C
2C LAKE CITY REPORTER ACT2 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2012 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-04242CACT2 2CACT2 2CACT2 Steve Jones, CFPFinancial Advisor2929 West U S Highway 90Suite 114Lake City, FL 32055386-752-3847 a policy analyst at The Senior Citizens League. By law, the increase in benefits is based on the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers, or CPI-W, a broad measure of consumer prices generated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. It measures price changes for food, housing, cloth-ing, transportation, energy, medical care, recreation and education. The Social Security Administration compares the price index in the third quarter of each year the months of July, August and September with the same three months in the previous year. If consumer prices increase from year to year, Social Security recipients automatically get higher payments, starting the fol-lowing January. If prices drop, the payments stay the same, as they did in 2010 and 2011. Since 1975, the annual COLA has averaged 4.2 percent. Only five times has it been below 2 percent, including the two times it was zero. Before 1975, it took an act of Congress to increase Social Security payments. The COLA has played an important role in keep-ing older Americans out of poverty, said David Certner, AARPs legislative policy director. Most older Americans rely on Social Security for a majority of their incomes, according to the Social Security Administration. Over the past decade, the COLA has helped increase incomes for seniors, even as incomes have dropped for younger workers. From 2001 to 2011, the median income for all U.S. households fell by 6.6 per-cent, when inflation was taken into account, accord-ing to census data. But the median income for house-holds headed by some-one 65 or older rose by 13 percent. COLA: 56 million people will get small increase Continued From Page 1C CDC scientists fightmeningitis outbreakBy KATE BRUMBACKAssociated PressATLANTA Scattered across the carefully land-scaped main campus of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are the staff on the front lines fighting a rare outbreak of fungal meningitis: A scien-tist in a white lab coat peers through a microscope at fungi on a glass slide. In another room, another researcher uses what looks like a long, pointed eye dropper to suck up DNA samples that will be tested for the suspect fungus. Not far away in another building is the emergency operations center, which is essentially the war room. Theres a low hum of voices as employees work the phones, talking to health officials, doctors and patients who received potentially contaminated pain injections believed to be at the root of the out-break. Workers sit at rows of computers, gathering data, advising doctors and reaching out to thousands of people who may have been exposed. Overall, doz-ens of people are working day and night to bring the outbreak under control. More than 200 people in 14 states have been sick-ened, including 15 who have died. There is a sense of urgency people are dying, and lives could be saved if those who are sickened get treated in time. But its not a race against a fast-spreading illness like avian flu or SARS or even the fictional virus the CDC fails to unravel in the popular TV series The Walking Dead. Unlike those out-breaks, this strain of men-ingitis isnt contagious and doesnt spread between people. It is likely isolated to the contaminated ste-roid, produced by the New England Compounding Center in Framingham, Mass. This is a very unusual infection, said Dr. John Jernigan, a CDC medical epidemiologist who is lead-ing the clinical investiga-tion team for the outbreak response. So, treatment recommendations, diag-nostic recommendations are all going to be new, and were learning as we go on this one. Meningitis, an inflammation of the membranes sur-rounding the brain and spi-nal cord, is not uncommon. But it is usually caused by bacteria, and it is very unusual to see it in patients with normal immune sys-tems, Jernigan said. This strain is caused by a fungus that is common in dirt and grasses people routinely come into contact with it without getting sick but it has never before been identified as the cause of meningitis. By Friday morning, officials believed they had reached about 90 percent of those who were poten-tially affected, Jernigan said. They planned to con-tinue trying to reach every person to see if theyve had problems and to warn them to be on the lookout for symptoms, which can include severe headache, nausea, dizziness and fever. The CDC says many of the cases have been mild, but some people had strokes. A meeting is held each morning to review over-night developments and plot a course of action for the day, and another at the end of the day summarizes the days developments and looks ahead to the next day. Maps on big screens in the front of the emergency operations center track the states where the tainted medications were sent and the tally of cases reported in affected states. A few steps away in the joint information center, another team works to keep the information about the outbreak on the CDCs website up to date and dis-seminate information via the media and other out-lets. In another building on the campus tucked away in the northeast corner of Atlanta, in a part of the CDC that specializes in fungal infections, about 15 scientists in the reference and research labs are log-ging 12 hours or more a day and working through weekends to test samples coming in from around the country. Because the lab scientists had never worked with this particular fun-gus in cerebrospinal fluid before, they had to quickly develop new tests to detect it before they could start analyzing the hundreds of samples cerebrospinal fluid samples, cultures and bits of tissue sent in from around the country, research lab team leader Ana Litvintseva said. Dressed in a white coat Friday, Shawn Lockhart, the fungal reference lab team leader, peered through a microscope as images of what looked like red pea pods appeared on a computer screen next to him. Many other closely related fungi look similar, but a tiny dot at the end of a pod told him he was looking at the fungus believed to be at the root of the outbreak. Normally, the reference lab works on difficult samples sent in from state health departments, while the research lab works on research projects. But the scale of this outbreak means those projects are mostly being shelved at the moment. The scale is much, much bigger than we would normally work with, said research lab team leader Ana Litvintseva said. We are working every week-end and people are here 12 to 13 hours at a time and were testing samples nonstop.

Pets cause about 510 house fires every year in this country, the majority involving a stov e or oven, lamp or light fixture, a candle, embers or ashes fro m an ashtray or fireplace, or a space heater.By SUE MANNINGAssociated PressLOS ANGELES A beloved pet dressed in a Halloween costume, posed next to a lit jack-o-lantern, sounds like a great photo opportunity but its also a fire haz-ard. Pets and other animals inadvertently set about 510 house fires every year in this country. From 2006 to 2010, such fires caused an average of $8.7 million in property damage and injured eight humans a year, said John R. Hall Jr., division director for fire analysis and research for the National Fire Protection Association. Animals including wild ones or pests like rats or insects are capable of starting a fire any time, but the major-ity involve a heat source, like a stove, light fixture, candle, embers, or a space heater, Hall said. And over colder holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, theres often more activity around those sources than usual. On Feb. 4, a Vancouver, Wash., family left a new puppy home alone for the first time and also food on the stove. The dog turned on the igniter trying to get to it, said fire department Capt. David James. The dog died, and the familys rental house was destroyed. It was insured and can be rebuilt, but people and pets cant be replaced, James said. A dog and a stove nearly set afire Kay Wardlows home in Norman, Okla., three years ago. Lucy, a Labrador retriever-basset hound mix with a pen-chant for chocolate, tried to get a cake off the stove while the family was out, Wardlow said. They were alerted to smoke in the house when their home security com-pany called to say their alarm had gone off. Lucy had hit the knobs on the gas stove, moving the auto-matic igniter just enough so it kept tripping and try-ing to light, she said. The heat melted the plastic on top of the cake pan and thats what filled the house with smoke, she said. Firefighters told her if the alarm company hadnt notified them, it would have flamed over and set the house on fire. You could smell the smoke from the street, with the smoke so thick that she couldnt see across a room, Wardlow said. When they opened the door, Lucy bounded out, wagging her tail and glad to see everyone. Its hard to look at her and be mad at her. Pets especially need monitoring around holi-days, when owners may be cooking or baking treats more often or when potentially flammable dec-orations are out. A dog or cat wearing a homemade Halloween costume, espe-cially one with a cape, might get too close to a jack-o-lantern with an open flame. If you dress your own dog, the fabric probably isnt fire-retardant, said Lisa Peterson, a spokes-woman for the American Kennel Club. So you need to be vigilant. Christmas trees, in particular, can topple when cats and dogs try to explore or climb them. Some decorations and overloaded electrical out-lets can be dangerous. Wardlow made preventative changes after Lucys near-catastrophe. The dog now stays out-side when the family isnt home and if she has to remain indoors, Wardlow removes the stove knobs. She said she never imagined that her home security system, which she had set up for protec-tion from burglars, would instead save her house from a fire my dog nearly started. Pets cause many home fires each year Its hard, taking a parents car keysBy ELLYN COUVILLIONThe AdvocateBATON ROUGE, La. Whether its due to dementia or other age-related health conditions, elderly people at some point often find they must give up driving. It might be something they realize on their own, or others might have to take the lead on the issue, but the road to that decision is anything but clearly marked. And its one that many people have to take. People dont realize we spend about seven to eight years (in old age) without the ability to drive a car. How can we plan for that? asked speaker Dr. David Carr at a recent public forum on dementia, presented by the Institute for Dementia Research and Prevention at Pennington Biomedical Research Center. It focused on driv-ing. While its often imperative for the safety of the driver and others on the road, losing the ability to drive is one of the biggest blows to an elderly persons independence, he said. Private cars account for over 90 percent of trips made by seniors, said Carr, a geriatrician and a profes-sor at Washington University in St. Louis. The ability to drive gives people autonomy, identity and social con-nectedness, which correlates with psychological and physical health, he said. Other speakers on a panel of experts at the public forum included Jeff Keller, Ph.D., director of the Institute for Dementia Research and Prevention; Barbara Auten, execu-tive director of Alzheimers Services of the Capital Area; and Dr. Patrick Gahan, a Baton Rouge geriatrician. The risk for being in a car crash climbs steadily after the age of 65, although its still not as high as the risk for teenage drivers, Carr said. The number of elderly people is growing, and chronic diseases that accompany those years can cause problems driving, he said. Dementia adds another difficulty, because sufferers may not recog-nize the need to stop driving. Family members often hand the decision to physicians or others.

Today Batumi glitters with neon lights and luxury high-rise hotels dot its skyline; soon the city will even boast a fountain flowing with Georgian grape vodka. The transformation of the ancient city of 180,000 near the border with Turkey is a vivid example of Georgias drive to capitalize on its tourism poten-tial, boosting the economy of an ex-Soviet nation where rough-ly one person in five lives in poverty. The government has attracted top foreign investors, such as U.S. real estate magnate Donald Trump, to build hotels and develop and renovate tour-ist sites. And it has aggressively marketed Georgia as a tourism hot spot. The project capitalizes not only on Georgias geographical riches the Black Sea, the soar-ing Caucasus mountains and its ancient cities but also on the very essence of the Georgian culture: hospitality itself. Here, refusing to come into ones home and sitting down at a food-laden table can result in deep personal insult, while declining to toast with traditional Georgian wine can prompt reprimands like, Dont you respect me? Unfortunately, Georgia is not a country that has a lot of natu-ral resources, there is no oil, no gas and so what helps the country grow economically is intellect and tourism, Batumi mayor Robert Chkhaidze told The Associated Press in an inter-view. For us, a guest is some-thing precious. For a Georgian, each guest is like God. Since coming to power in the peaceful 2003 Rose Revolution, the pro-Western President Mikhail Saakashvili has turned the tourism industry into a key sector of the Georgian economy, now comprising 7.1 percent of the Georgian GDP, compared to 3.4 percent in 2004. In 2001, Georgias Black Sea towns, the ski resorts of Gudauri and Bakuriani, the winemaking region of Kakheti and other tour-ist attractions have drawn 2.8 million or nearly 8 times more than in 2004 and tourism rev-enues have jumped from $176 million to $938 million, accord-ing to tourism officials. It remains to be seen whether Saakashvilis rival, billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili, who appears poised to become the next prime minister, will continue develop-ing the tourism sector or focus on something else. But the effects of the tourism campaign are plain to see in the transformation of this resort, dubbed the Batumi Miracle. Today, the center of Batumi could easily be mistaken for a western European seaside town with neat cobblestone streets, graced by vine grapes descend-ing onto the pavement, bustling cafes and noisy fountains. The city skyline is dotted by interna-tionally renowned hotels like the Sheraton and the Hilton; scores of others including a 47-story Trump Tower are being built. At night, Batumi is bright with lights and even the pineapple-shaped palm trees, which line the embankment, are illuminated. Batumi now boasts its own piazza, dominated by a soaring clock-tower, which is modeled after central city squares in Italian cities. Work is also under way to erect a fountain flow-ing with chacha, Georgian grape vodka, available for free, though in small amounts. There are scores of fashion boutiques and even a plastic surgery clinic. The new hotels have created several thousand jobs for the graduates of a recently opened tourism college, a heartening change in a country where the unemployment rate is 16 per-cent. Restaurants and cafes have sprung up like mushrooms, offering the traditional Georgian dish called of Khachapuri, crusty boat-shaped bread in which an egg yolk floats in melted cheese and butter. And while some skeptics say that the official tourism figures may be inflated, there is no doubt that tourism is booming, with beaches and restaurants busy with visitors. Most tourists come from other ex-Soviet nations like Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Armenia and Azerbaijan, but English, French and other lan-guages are also heard on the streets. Oksana Dovrenova, 40, came to Batumi with her daughter Damira Rakhmanova, 15, from the Central Asian nation of Kazakhstan. It was their first time at the sea and they were pleasantly surprised to discover that sea water is indeed salty. The people are very friendly, very welcoming, they are always happy to see you. Good job, Dovrenova said, as she sunbathed at the pebble stone beach. Shi Tang, 29, from China who works as a sales manager at a radio station in nearby Turkey, said he will return to Batumi, which he called a European city, with his friends. This is a good place: good sea, good beach and there are so many churches, Shi said. Locals call Batumi the city of love and authorities have erected numerous monuments to make the point like the figure of a man kneeling down before a woman, offering her a red heart. Theyve even opened a round-the-clock marriage reg-istry, where anyone can tie the knot day and night. A lot of families have been created after the tourist sea-son in Batumi, Chkhaidze, the mayor, said with a smile. But a lot remains to be done. Step a few blocks away from the city center, and you may stumble into a pothole, see crumbling buildings and underwear flap-ping in the wind on balconies. Locals complain that water short-ages still persist in residential areas and the average monthly salary in the city is just $300. People are still struggling, but the city is getting better and better, said Marina Soselia, a 57-year-old doctor in Batumi. Despite the difficulties, officials say, tourists are sure to get a warm welcome in Georgia. One recent afternoon, a taxi driver pulled up to entrance of the Batumi and told his passen-gers, a young couple, that the next time they come here, I will show you such places, that you wouldnt want to leave. The couple smiled with gratitude, but a colleague of the driver who stood nearby admonished him, Why didnt you show them these places this time around? If you had, they wouldnt be leaving now!

The government has attracted top foreign investors, such By JOHN SEEWERAssociated PressTOLEDO, Ohio Long before smartphones turned so many of us into amateur photographers and revolu-tionized how we depict each other through social media, there were the works of French Impressionist Edouard Manet. Known for portraits of friends and celebrities of his era, the painter often called the first modern art-ist came of age during the mid-1800s when photogra-phy first became available to the public. He even kept his own collection of photos of the subjects he painted. Manets portraits and how they were influenced by photography are the focus of Manet: Portraying Life at the Toledo Museum of Art, the only U.S. muse-um to host the exhibition before it moves to The Royal Academy of Arts in London next winter. The show that opened this month and runs through the end of the year features 40 paintings from public and private collections, includ-ing some of his best-known works. Instead of assembling a retrospective of Manets works, the two museums chose portraits that would open the discussion of what impact photography had on Manets paintings. Were not suggesting an exact reliance on photog-raphy, but this was a new medium in the era that hes painting and it was very important, said co-curator Lawrence Nichols. It is the first time a Manet (1832-1883) exhibit has looked solely at his portraits, said Nichols, the museums curator of European and American painting and sculpture before 1900. The museums own collection includes Manets portrait of a childhood friend who wrote extensively about the artist. The works include straight forward portraits of men in top hats and women in flow-ing dresses. There are oth-ers that illustrate the change in around his home in Paris, revealing social unrest and the Industrial Revolution. Sprinkled throughout the exhibition are photos of his subjects some are origi-nal and others are digitized from an album Manet kept to give insight into how he interpreted them the people he painted. In one photo, the tie and beard of a man bears a noticeable similarity to one of his paint-ings. He had images in his life beyond the paintings he made, Nichols said. About half of Manets entire works, which rank among the greatest of the Impressionist movement, were portraits or scenes from everyday life. Some of the portraits in the show evoke the pho-tos that we see today on social networking sites like Facebook theyre small and straightforward yet reveal something personal about each subject. And they reveal how we record and connect with each other. Before Facebook, there was Manet, painting friends

GET 1 Pair FREE E YE EXAM S by Independent Optometrist By TIM EVANS The Indianapolis Star MARION, Ind. Smoke from campfires wafts among the sycamores lining the banks of the Mississinewa River as the sounds of gun fire, drums and war-whoops echo through the woods. In a clearing, ragtag bands of settlers and more polished soldiers armed with muskets clash with American Indians. The fighting leaves the ground littered with bodies. It is a gruesome yet oddly engaging scene that takes visitors back to the Battle of Mississinewa, a pivotal turning point in the War of 1812 and in the history of the territory that soon would become Indiana. The historic battle site about seven miles north of Marion is bustling this weekend with more than 1,000 re-enactors and arti sans and an estimated 30,000 more who come to take in the sights and soak up the colors and flavors of a bygone era. The annual three-day event that continues through Sunday features Americas largest War of 1812 battle re-enactment. The Mississinewa event part battle spectacle, part living history fair is also one of the most visible and enduring reminders of just how little many Hoosiers know about a nearly forgot ten war that helped shape the state. Even the well-honed reenactment, now in its 25th year, misses the mark his torically on at least a couple of counts, as organizers readily admit. First, the actual battle was waged in December, not October. And second, no British troops were involved in the fighting despite their par ticipation in the daily battle re-enactments. Still, re-enactors and his torians agree, the obser vance is a good introduc tion to the escalating con flict between Indians and settlers two centuries ago in what then was the Old Northwest. For many, the war can be boiled down to two or three touchstones. Probably bestknown are the British burn ing of the White House; the attack on Fort McHenry, which inspired Francis Scott Key to pen the poem that would later be set to music and become The Star-Spangled Banner; and the Battle of New Orleans, which actually occurred after the war ended. David Nichols, associate professor at Indiana State University, said the War of 1812 is much harder to define than the two others wars fought on U.S. soil the American Revolution and Civil War. The War of 1812, he explained, was fought on several fronts and for dif ferent reasons. There was no clear set of principles, Nichols explained, nor obvi ous good and bad guys. There were no large-scale battles. And, probably most significantly, there was no real winner at least in terms of gaining land or power. But there was a clear loser, particularly in Indiana: the Indian tribes that gave the state its name. To the extent that the U.S. won, it did so through imperial aggres sion, Nichols told The Indianapolis Star. The war decisively broke the Native Americans in Indiana. That victory fueled a rapid expansion of settlement that set the stage for state hood in 1816, when Indiana passed the benchmark of 60,000 free inhabitants and became the 19th state. Territorial Governor William Henry Harrison believed the only way to induce settlement was to offer free land, Nichols said. To procure that land, it had to be taken from the Indians. Many Hoosiers may not know details of the bloody and sometimes morally dis turbing battles fought on Indiana soil between U.S. troops and Indians who opposed the encroachment of white settlers, yet remind ers abound. The war helped propel Harrison to national promi nence and the presidency. In fact, his classic campaign slogan Tippecanoe and Tyler, too is a refer ence to Harrisons success in the Battle of Tippecanoe, which is often considered the first conflict of the war, even though it occurred in 1811. Other military leaders who fought or lost their lives on the wars western front became namesakes for more than a half-dozen counties across the state, including Bartholomew, Daviess, Owen, Spencer, Warrick and Wells. Even some of the key Indian leaders, most notably Shawnee chief Tecumseh a savvy warrior who aligned with the British and led an effort to establish a pan-Indian confederacy to fight for an independent Native American state have been memorialized by Hoosiers. Tributes to Tecumseh include a small, unincorporated commu nity north of Terre Haute named in his honor and schools bearing his name in Tippecanoe and Warrick counties. Tecumsehs younger brother, Tenskwatawa, a spiritual leader known as The Prophet, also has been the subject of long-lasting tributes. In 1994, the state established Prophetstown State Park near Lafayette. There also is the Prophets Rock memorial, erected in 1929 at a site along Prophet Rock Road near Battle Ground, marking the spot where Tenskwatawa sat and sang to encourage the Indians during the Nov. 7, 1811, Battle of Tippecanoe. The frontier conflict with Indians had little to do with the United States entering the War of 1812. That was spurred by conflicts with Britain over issues related to maritime activity and trade. But the Indians were supported by the British, and that gave settlers and the territorial government a rationale to merge their fight into the broader con flict with Britain. Tensions had escalated between the settlers and Indians following the sign ing of the Treaty of Fort Wayne, negotiated in 1809 by Harrison. The treaty vehemently opposed by Tecumseh added nearly 3 million acres of former Indian land to U.S. holdings. Fearing an Indian upris ing, Harrison led troops in an attack on Prophetstown in November 1811, sack ing the village along the Tippecanoe River where Indians backing Tecumseh had begun to muster. The fighting is often con sidered to be the first salvo of the war on the western front. At least a half-dozen more significant battles would fol low over the next year the most fighting on Indiana soil in any conflict before or since. In the wake of Tippecanoe, and for much of 1812, the Indians held the upper hand. That changed in December 2012, when U.S. troops and militiamen launched a surprise attack on several Indian villages along the Mississinewa River. The fighting marked the first clear victory for U.S. forces in the land war. Mississinewa did a lot to turn the tide of the war, said Roger Laybourn, Loogootee, a historical interpreter and docent at Grouseland, the Harrison mansion in Vincennes. It would be the last major conflict on Indiana soil, but it would be decades before most of the remain ing Indians were removed some forcibly from the new state of Indiana. War or not, however, the removal of Indians from the territory was inevitable, said Dawn G. Marsh, a Purdue University professor who teaches Native American history.

Charles Schumer says scammers are steal ing thousands of senior citi zens Social Security pay ments, often with just one phone call. The New York Democrat on Sunday urged the federal Social Security Administration to take safe ty measures to curb the fraud. As of August, the sena tor says, there have been more than 19,000 reports of attempted identify thefts. Thats about 50 each day. The payments are direct ly deposited into private bank accounts. Scammers divert pay ments by obtaining account information, then making a phone call to reroute the money to their own accounts. It shouldnt take just one phone call and a scrap of information for a thief to reroute Social Security payments to a fake bank account, Schumer said. Social Security is a life line to seniors, and a thief shouldnt be able to sever that line with a snap of their finger. To foil scammers, Schumer wants beneficia ries to be notified immedi ately about any attempted changes to bank account information via email, text, letters and automated phone calls.
