By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comState Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, was appointed to a number of committees and subcommittees by Speaker of the House Will Weatherford. She will serve as vice chair on the Education Committee and vice chair on the Economic Development and Tourism Subcommittee. She was also appointed to the Agriculture and Natural Resources Subcommittee, the Transportation Economic Development Appropriations Subcommittee and the K-12 Education Subcommittee. She said it will be an honor to serve as the vice chair on the Education Committee. Her husband is a teacher and her children are in the public education system. Certainly its near and dear to my heart, she said. Something she hopes comes up in the K-12 Education Subcommittee is the lack of options for students in public education. It seems like we are very, very focused on treating all children as if they are all college-bound students, and thats just not By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comC olumbia County residents are turning out in force to buy Powerball tickets in hopes of winning the $500 million prize. The drawing will be tonight at 11 p.m. At the One Stop Chevron, NW US Highway 41, Nick Patel said the convenience store has sold more than $700 worth of Powerball tickets. Everybody has been talking about the $500 million, he said. They use the holy moly word. Patel said many Powerball players wait until the last day to buy their lottery ticket, and that he expects tomorrow to be a busy day. Over at the Stop N Go, Michael Bell bought a Powerball ticket and said he plays the lot-tery sometimes. If he wins the big prize, he said he would take a vacation with his seven chil-dren and 10 grandchildren. I would do what I do every time I go on vacation -go to Disney World, he said. Thats just about the only place his wife is happy, he said, and thats about as important as the sun coming up each day. The historic Powerball jackpot was all part of a plan lottery offi-cials put in place early this year to build jackpots faster, drive sales and generate more money for states that run the game. Their plan appears to be working. Powerball tickets doubled in price in January to $2, and while the number of tickets sold initially dropped, sales revenue has increased by about 35 percent over 2011. Sales for Powerball reached a record $3.96 billion in fiscal 2012 and are expected to reach $5 bil-lion this year, said Chuck Strutt, executive director of the Des Moines, Iowa-based Multi-State Lottery Association, the group that runs the Powerball game. There has been no Powerball winner since Oct. 6, and the jackpot already has reached a record level for the game.

Porter Coachquits afterarrest $500 million fever CHS baseball coach resigns on Tuesday.By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comThe head coach of the Columbia High School varsity baseball team has resigned following his arrest last week for a fight with members of his fam-ily, a school official said Tuesday. Justin Thomas Clark will remain on faculty at CHS as a history teacher, Superintendent. Terry Huddleston said. Clark, 30, of 204 SW Kimberly Lane, was arrested the day before Thanksgiving for attacking relatives after coming home extremely intoxicated, according to an arrest report from the Columbia County Sheriffs Office. He faces charges of battery and resisting an offi-cer without violence, accord-ing to the report. The school district continues its look at the situation. We are aware of it, and we are dealing with it, Huddleston said. Huddleston said there is a process that the district must follow. Based on those charges, we have to let that process work itself out, he said. Its still an ongoing process and we have to follow certain guidelines. The report said Clark arrived at 204 SW Kimberly Lane around 1 a.m. on Nov. 21 and refused to leave the vehi-cle of the person who drove him to the house. The report said that when he did get out of the vehicle, he started curs-ing at a family member. He then reportedly pushed the family member in the chest, causing him to fall in the front yard. The alleged victim said he then went inside to let Clark sleep off the alcohol. About 45 minutes later, the man went outside to check on Clark, who was awake and heading into the garage. When Clark tried to get into a vehicle, the man said he was too drunk to drive and pulled him out of the vehicle by his arms. Clark then alleg-edly pushed the man against another vehicle in the garage and hit him in the face mul-tiple times. Other family members heard the noise in the garage Clark COACH continued on 3A CLIFF continued on 3ALocal folks looking to cash in on jackpot Record Powerball result of changesto boost sales. A disconnect as fiscal cliff clock ticksBy ANDREW TAYLORAssociated PressWASHINGTON Republicans newfound willingness to consider tax increases to avert the fiscal cliff comes with a significant caveat: larg-er cuts than Democrats seem willing to consider to benefit programs like Medicare, Medicaid and the presidents health care overhaul.

The ACLU released the transcripts Tuesday. Officers messaged each other about bum hunt ing, dressing up as bums and said police are considered soft until they fought with a bum.

Ma Barker house again up for sale OCKLAWAHA, Fla. The central Florida house known as the Ma Barker hideout, site of the longest shootout in FBI history, is up for sale. The two-story house was slated to be auctioned in October and drew inter national attention, but the event was canceled when agents said their clients were cool to the $1 million starting bid. Its now listed at $889,000. The house was made famous in 1935 when fugi tive gangster Fred Barker and his mother, Kate Ma Barker, were killed in a shootout with the FBI. Ma Barker had been labeled Public Enemy No. 1 by the federal government for a spree of murders, kidnappings and robberies throughout the Midwest. The Orlando Sentinel reports the sale will include FBI documents, maps from the shootout, and photographs showing the bodies.

Michael Dunn is facing murder and attempted murder charges in the shooting of 17-year-old Jordan Davis. Davis was waiting inside the car with two other teenagers while the cars 19-year-old driver made a purchase inside the gas station. Dunn was outside the store waiting for his girlfriend. They were listening to music. It was loud, they admitted that, said Lt. Rob Schoonover, a homicide detective with the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office.

Actress guilty in fatal NJ crash SOMERVILLE, N.J. A former Melrose Place actress who was driving drunk when her SUV plowed into another car, killing a woman, was con victed Tuesday of vehicular homicide and jailed after her bail was revoked. She was acquitted of a more serious charge of aggravated manslaughter. Amy Locane-Bovenizer, 40, had sought to shift blame for the fatal accident to a third motorist whose car she had rear-ended and who had been pursuing the actress, and also to the husband of the car accident victim for making what witnesses said was a slow turn in front of her SUV. But the conviction on a charge of death by auto, also known as vehicu lar homicide, was as a matter of law a rejection of that defense, Assistant Prosecutor Matthew Murphy said fol lowing the verdict. Locane-Bovenizers blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit when the crash occurred in 2010 on a dark two-lane road in Montgomery Township, in central New Jersey, according to evidence presented at the trial. Locane-Bovenizer, who did not testify at the trial, appeared in 13 epi sodes of TVs Melrose Place and in movies including Cry-Baby, School Ties and Secretary. She faces five to 10 years in prison on the vehicular homicide count. Lenny Kravitz to play Marvin Gaye in biopic NEW YORK Lenny Kravitz has signed on for his first leading film role, playing singer Marvin Gaye in a biopic that will be shot next year. The rockers publicist Carleen Donovan confirmed the news Tuesday. Kravitz has played sup porting roles in the past, including a small part in The Hunger Games. Rolling Stone first reported details about the 48-year-old performers part in the film, directed by Julien Temple. The magazine said the Are You Gonna Go My Way singer will portray Gaye during the 1980s when he was fighting addic tions and attempting to restart his career. Gaye died in 1984 after being shot by his father.

Aubry, 37, was arrested on suspi cion of misdemeanor battery after his confrontation with Martinez on Thursday, but he states in the civil court filings that he was not the aggressor and that he was threat ened and attacked without provoca tion. Martinez told police that Aubry had attacked first, the filings state.

and came outside to assist the man. A deputy with the Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrived at that point and saw four people holding Clark down in the driveway. Clark was shouting profani ties and threatening to kill them all, according to the report. The deputy told the peo ple holding Clark down to turn him on his back so he could be handcuffed. When they let Clark go, he stood and tackled the first person he saw a female family member and pinned her to the ground, according to the arrest report. The deputy then said that he told Clark to stop resist ing. When he didnt stop, the officer shot Clark in the center of his back with his Taser. Clark was taken into custody without fur ther incident and was later released on $4,000 bail. Clark said he regretted what happened, but that because the case is still under investigatation he declined to say more.

Its the second highest jackpot in lottery history, behind only the $656 million Mega Millions prize in March. It took nine weeks for the Mega Millions jackpot to get that high, before three winners from Kansas, Illinois and Maryland hit the right numbers, each collecting $218.6 million for their share of the split. With soaring jackpots come soaring sales, and for the states playing the game, that means higher revenue. The purpose for the lot tery is to generate revenue for the respective states and their beneficiary pro grams, said Norm Lingle, chairman of the Powerball Game Group. High jack pots certainly help the lot tery achieve those goals. Of the $2 cost of a Powerball ticket, $1 goes to the prizes and the other dollar is kept by the state lottery organization, said Lingle, who also is execu tive director of the South Dakota Lottery. After administrative overhead is paid, the remaining amount goes to that states beneficiary programs. Some states designate specific expenditures such as education, while oth ers deposit the money in their general fund to help supplement tax revenue. The federal government keeps 25 percent of the jackpot for federal taxes. Most states withhold between 5 percent and 7 percent. Theres no with holding in states without a state income tax such as Delaware, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, and Texas. A New York City winner would pay more than 12 percent since the state takes 8.97 percent and the city keeps 3.6 percent. Powerball and Mega Millions games are seeing jackpots grow faster and higher in part because the states that play both games agreed in 2010 to sell to one another. Both games are now played in 42 states, Washington, D.C., and the Virgin Islands. The larger pool of players means jackpots roll over to higher numbers faster, which tends to increase the buzz about the jackpots which increases sales. It all can result in higher jackpots sooner. It really happened with both of these games became national games, said Terry Rich, CEO of the Iowa Lottery. Still, just seven of the top 25 jackpots occurred after January 2010 when the cross-selling began. That just points to the unpredictability of games of chance like lotteries. It still comes down to the luck of the numbers, Rich said. It has been proven that once the jackpot reaches a certain threshold more players buy. The Quick Shop in Ottumwa, Iowa, is one of the states highest-volume lottery ticket sellers due to its location across the street from a John Deere farm implement factory. Its picking up by the minute, said store owner Mark Ebelsheiser. Were selling probably 60 to 70 percent more than normal. When it gets up this high they really come out and get them. Bob Allison, a retired Indian Hills Community College instructor and administrator, buys tick ets weekly for a group of people at the college in Ottumwa. On Tuesday he and two golfing and fishing buddies went in together to buy additional tickets. of automatic spending increases and harsh cuts to the Pentagon and domestic programs. Democrats emboldened by the election are moving in the opposite direction from the GOP on curbing spending, refusing to look at cuts that were on the bargaining table just last year. Those include any changes to Social Security, even though President Barack Obama was willing back then to consider cuts in future benefits through lower cost-of-living increas es. Obama also considered raising the eligibility age for Medicare, an idea that most Democrats oppose. I havent seen any sug gestions on what theyre going to do on spend ing, a frustrated Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said Tuesday. Theres a cer tain cockiness that Ive seen that is really astound ing to me since were basi cally in the same position we were before. Well, says Obamas most powerful ally on Capitol Hill, the Democrats are willing to tackle spending on entitlement programs if Republicans agree to raise income tax rates on the wealthiest Americans a nonstarter with Republicans still in control of the House. We hope that they can agree to the tax revenue that were talking about, and that is rate increas es, and as the presidents said on a number of occa sions, well be happy to deal with entitlements, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Tuesday. But Reid speaks only in the most general terms, wary of publicly embracing specific ideas like boost ing Medicare premiums or raising the programs eligi bility age. At the White House, Obama met with a group of small business owners. Participants described the hour-long meeting as a lis tening session for Obama, with the business owners urging him to reach an agreement. They had one message for the president, which is they need certainty. Please get this deal done as soon as possible. They very much want consum ers out there knowing that theyre going to have money in their pockets to spend. Thats why its so important to pass the extension of the tax cuts for 98 percent of consum ers, 97 percent of all small businesses, said Small Business Administration head Karen Mills. Obama planned to meet Wednesday with more than a dozen leaders from large corporations, includ ing Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs, Marissa Mayer of Yahoo!, Brian Roberts of Comcast and Arne Sorenson of Marriott. Obama hits the road on Friday, visiting a Pennsylvania toy facto ry and broadcasting his case to extend current tax rates for all but those families making more than $250,000 a year. Private White House negotiations with top aides to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and oth ers are cloaked in secrecy, with no evidence of head way. Theres been little prog ress with the Republicans, which is a disappoint ment to me, Reid, a key negotiator, told reporters on Tuesday. They talked some happy talk about doing revenues, but we only have a couple weeks to get something done. So we have to get away from the happy talk and start talking about specific things. Republicans say its Obama and his Democratic allies on Capitol Hill who are holding back, and they point to a balance of power in official Washington that is little changed by the presidents re-election. Republicans still control the House, despite los ing seats in the election. Democrats control the Senate. Democrats in Congress have downplayed the dan ger of going over the cliff and continue to rule out sensible spending cuts that must be part of any significant agreement to reduce the deficit, said Michael Steel, spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. Just last year, Obama and top Democrats were will ing during budget negotia tions with Republicans to take politically risky steps such as reducing the annu al inflation adjustment to Social Security retirement payments and raising the eligibility age for Medicare, which provides health care coverage to the elderly. Now, with new leverage from Obamas election vic tory and a playing field for negotiations that is more favorable to Democrats than during the talks of the summer of 2011, Democrats are taking a harder line, ruling out any moves on Social Security and all but dismissing ideas like raising the eli gibility age for Medicare from 65. The election spoke very strongly about the fact that the American people dont want to cut these pro grams that actually really sustain the middle class in America and allow people to become part of the mid dle class, said Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa. I think they feel some what emboldened by the election, said GOP Rep. Tom Price of Georgia. How could you not when your president is re-elected after running four straight years of trillion dollar-plus deficits? Indeed, Obama could be in position to blame Republicans if an impasse results in the government going over the fiscal cliff. Democrats already are portraying GOP lawmak ers as hostage-takers will ing to let tax rates rise on everyone if lower Bush-era tax rates are not extended for the top 2 percent to 3 percent of earners those with incomes above $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for joint fil ers. One thing Republicans have to realize were in much better shape in January, said Harkin, referring to a time when taxes would have already risen and Democrats would be offering to cut taxes for all but the wealthiest Americans. Fiscal cliff? I dont care. Obamas opening posi tion in the negotiations calls for $1.6 trillion in higher taxes over the com ing decade, balanced by just $340 billion in cuts to rapidly growing health care programs, generally taken from health care providers instead of beneficiaries.

She said that some stu dents want to go into agri culture, and other students would like to learn a skilled trade like plumbing, car pentry or metal working. Those children need to be prepared for their careers, as well, and right now were not doing a very good job as a state of offer ing them those options, she said. She said that increas ing options for students was a topic on the mind of Weatherford as well, and that she will work aggres sively to make more educa tional options for students become a reality.

T his may be overly optimistic maybe even Charlie Brown-kicking-the-football optimistic but there are encouraging signs that this postelection Congress is serious about averting the pitfalls of the noto-rious fiscal cliff. Over the weekend, two key Republicans, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Rep. Peter King of New York, jettisoned the partys now-notorious anti-tax-increase pledge and joined other senior Republicans in saying they were willing to work to find ways to generate additional government revenues. King said that everything should be on the table, pre-sumably including tax increas-es for the wealthy, but Graham stuck to the partys position that any increase in tax rates is unacceptable. He proposed capping tax deductions for upper-income Americans, which would have much the same effect, bringing to mind the Washington adage that if the name bothers you, then change the name. Meanwhile, House Republicans, chastened by the loss of eight seats in the election, seem more amenable to listening to their speaker, John Boehner of Ohio, whose efforts to reach a grand bar-gain on the deficit with the White House were torpedoed by the more extreme wing of his own membership. Boehner has tightened control of the House Republican Conference, where some of the partys more radical ideas had originated. Among other moves, he successfully helped install Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington state as conference chair, the No. 4 position in the House GOP leadership. And relations with House Republican leader Eric Cantor of Virginia seem much improved. Cantor who made no secret of his desire to replace Boehner as speaker, preferably sooner rather than later seems to have moder-ated his ambitions. Supposedly the staffs of the two sides have been working on a two-step accommodation, one that would at least tempo-rarily get Congress past the tax issue and finesse an automatic across-the-board cut in federal spending set to hit in January. Members of the congressional supercommittee that unsuccessfully tried to draw up a comprehensive debt solu-tion last summer are said to be meeting in small groups. For his part, President Barack Obama has named Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner as his chief negotiator in congressional deficit-reduc-tion talks, apparently in hopes that some new blood on his team would get the talks off to a fresh start. The principals are in place; the issues are known; talk of compromise is in the air; and the fact is that this is an issue Congress has to resolve. If Congress fails to act quickly, the question then becomes: How much economic damage are lawmakers willing to inflict on the country before they finally settle the matter? Optimism that we will avoid fiscal cliff OUR OPINION W eve seen this movie before. Maybe dreamed this nightmare. Or covered this Congress and White House. We are careening downhill with broken brakes. We are out of control and a cliff is dead ahead. We are down to one last desperate solution: We must build a bridge to somewhere to save us from plunging over the fiscal cliff and carry us safely to what-ever is on the other side. Heres the good news: We know how to build the bridge. Heres the bad news: Weve failed for decades to build it because our leaders havent had the guts to tell us the truth about what is on the other side. So today well be talking about the tough truths on where we must go and what we must do to get there. Our Democratic and Republican leaders agree on this much: Our federal debt is soaring and cutting or at least controlling it requires major reforms in how Washington raises and spends money. And that wont happen until we make some changes in the basic assumptions that underlie our federal tax system and our massive domestic spending programs, called entitlements. Especially Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Here is where the new truth gets tangled in political old-think. Because many of our wealthiest individuals and cor-porate leaders are eager to dis-cuss the need to reform (their translation is: cut) entitlement programs benefiting not just the poor and near poor, but also the middleand upper-middle classes. But in truth, they too are beneficiaries of other huge federal entitlements -tax deduc-tions to which theyve long felt entitled. Like when they stash millions in offshore tax shelters and myriad other deductions that keep them and their tax lawyers rich. Their bottom line means billionaires pay tax rates that may be half what barbers and bakers pay -and General Electric reportedly paid no fed-eral income taxes at all. One assumption that must be changed along with reform-ing the more commonly known entitlement programs is that the wealthiest Americans also get government handouts and these can no longer be considered their automatic entitlements. Interestingly, a few billionaires made that same case. Indeed, Republican presidential standard bearer Mitt Romney made a proposal during the last campaign that should be a start-ing point for our income tax reform. Romney proposed cut-ting the deductions that helped make his own tax rate way less than yours. Rather than haggle about which deductions should be scrapped, he said, lets just cap the total that can be deduct-ed. He proposed a wide range of figures and settled on none of them. Still, thats one small step for billionaire man, one giant step for the rest of mankind. Moving on to traditional entitlement programs, Democrats and Republicans are in violent agreement about more than they think. Because so many of us are living so much longer than folks lived in the 1930s and 1960s, Social Security will no longer work as a pay-as-you-go program. Medicare too needs ever-increasing federal support. But they must continue to serve all who need them. It may be time to rethink one big basic assumption underlying Social Security: It really is our key form of income insurance; it provides vital basic income for the ever-expanding group of elderly Americans. But it doesnt work like other forms of insurance we buy because everybody automatically gets its government benefits upon becoming senior citizens. When you pay premiums for health insurance or storm insurance, you know you wont receive benefits unless you have a health or storm problem covered by your policy. Yet, billionaires and multimillionaires with no income problems receive Social Security benefits payments, just like most Americans who need that money to pay basic bills. Some experts and some wealthy Americans recom-mend reducing or eliminating Social Security benefits for those who earn millions annu-ally. Romney also suggested reducing Medicare support for the wealthiest senior citizens. Those new assumptions show us where we are headed. Its a livable land we can see on the other side of that fiscal cliff. But to get there, we need a bot-tom line commitment from the president and Congress to save us from the mess they made by rethinking the basic assump-tions driving our debt madness. Let them commit to filling in the blanks in 2013. And let their binding bipartisan pact be our bridge to a fiscal somewhere that is, at last, safe and sane. Building a budgetary bridge LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:With the re-election of the president and other promi-nent Democratic members of Congress, what did America say to the world? What did the overwhelming support for these liberals say about ourselves? Number 1: Abortion is legal, moral, ethical and preferred. Abortion anytime, anyplace, anybody and government will pay for it. Do not injure an ani-mal but human babies are fair game. Vote Democrat. Number 2: Welfare is acceptable. Bring us your tired, despondent, bewildered, hope-less, and we will take them in free of charge. The only thing we want them to move into gov-ernment housing, where crime is rampant and the police car frequents. The American dream is antiquated thinking. Let go and let government. We will take care of your every need. Vote Democrat. Number 3: Aliens welcome. Come on over to America, we will support you and we have arranged so law enforcement cannot ask you for proof of citizenship. It doesnt matter if you are a terrorist you will fall in love with our generos-ity. Remember when you get squared away, vote Democrat. Number 4: Education is a government responsibility. We want to take care of your childrens educational needs. We want them as early as possible, free, check our successes. College is a sure thing with government help. While waiting for your government funding get another tattoo. Vote Democrat. Number 5: Debt? What debt? America the greatest nation on earth, we are good for it, tax the rich. Spend now pay later. Dont worry about debt. Vote Democrat. Number 6: Military. In all actuality a strong military is a luxury. Everybody loves us and our national defense is not nec-essarily a priority. We can cut billions from our military. Peace not war, everybody will adhere to a peaceful world We can make it happen. Vote Democrat. Number 7: Moral Degradation? Just because our political leaders hang with trash-mouth rappers and talk-show hosts and use that language themselves, come on, dont be so picky. The Bible is also antiquated much like the Constitution and other perfectly written American founding doc-uments. Who needs them? Free yourself up vote Democrat. Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, He gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought to be done.

BY E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org T onights Powerball drawing is worth an estimated $500 million. Here are a few points of interest, courtesy The Associated Press: Its true to say that you have a better chance of being struck by lightning than winning the Powerball. But that greatly understates the danger of light-ning. Tim Norfolk, a University of Akron mathematics profes-sor who teaches a course on gambling, puts the odds of a lightning strike in a persons lifetime at 1 in 5,000. The odds of winning the Powerball jack-pot: 1 in 175 million. While weather is the go-to analogy for such astronomical odds, Norfolk suggests there are better ones. For example, youd have a slightly better chance of ran-domly picking the name of one specific female in the United States: 1 in 157 million, accord-ing to the latest census. More lottery facts: Prefer the lucky numbers of seven or 11? Youre not alone. How about a loved ones birthday? Its 31 or lower digits more frequently dupli-cated than 32 and up. (There are 59 white balls and 35 red balls in the draw). Norfolk predicts that if there is a winner, there will be mul-tiple ones because mathemati-cal theory shows that numbers have a way of clustering, even at much smaller sample sizes. If you take 23 random people, theres about a 50-50 chance that at least two will have the same birthday, Norfolk said. Throw choice into the equation about 20 percent of players typically select their own num-bers and the clusters could be even more defined. A single ticket holds Powerballs current record of $365 million in 2006, shared by several ConAgra Foods Workers in Lincoln, Neb. The balls used in the game are regularly measured, weighed and X-rayed. Then theyre locked up in a room thats under 24/7 surveillance. Only the organizers and their auditors have a key. Feelinglucky?

By PHILIP ELLIOTT Associated Press WASHINGTON For decades, conservative lob byist Grover Norquist vowed to drive Republicans out of office if they didnt pledge to oppose tax increases. Many lawmak ers signed on. But now, several senior Republicans are break ing ranks, willing to con sider raising more money through taxes as part of a deal with Democrats to avoid a catastrophic budget meltdown. Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker says the only pledge he will keep is his oath of office. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor says no one in his home state of Virginia is talking about what leaders in Washington refer to simply as The Pledge, a Norquist invention that dates to 1986. Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss says he cares more about his country than sticking to Norquists pledge. Its quite an about-face for senior members of a party that long has stood firmly against almost any notion of tax increases. And while GOP leaders insist they still dont want to see taxes go up, the real ity of a nation in a debt crisis is forcing some to moderate their opposition to any movement on how much Americans pay to fund their government. Republican legislators and Democratic President Barack Obamas White House are haggling vig orously as they look for ways to reach agreement on detailed tax adjust ments and spending cuts before automatic, bluntforce changes occur at the new year. Oh, I signed it, Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama said on Fox News about Norquists pledge, adding he still supports its goals. But weve got to deal with the crisis we face. Weve got to deal with the politi cal reality of the presidents victory. The naysaying about the pledge is raising the ques tion of whether Norquist a little-known Republican outside of Washington is losing his position of power within the GOP. Its a notion that he calls ridiculous. Nobodys turning on me, Norquist said. But he indicated he would turn on lawmakers who defy him, starting with Corker, who Monday published an opinion piece in The Washington Post outlining an alternative to the budget breakdown that includes more revenue. Corker was elected to the Senate because he took the pledge, Norquist said on Fox News. If he breaks it, hes going to have to have a conversa tion with the people of Tennessee about his keep ing his word. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER NATION & WORLD WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 28, 2012 6A As A Special Welcoming Gift To You, We Are Oering: $ 29 00 (ADA-00110) (ADA-00330) (if needed) The policy of our ofce is that the patient and any other person responsible for payment has a right to refuse to pay, cancel payment, or be reimbursed for payment for any service, examination, or treatment if performed as a result of and within 72 hours of responding to the advertisement for the free, discounted fee, examination or treatment.

Llewellyn Ave. Lake City, FL (across from East Side School ) (386) 758-9808 Over Years By MAGGIE MICHAEL and SARAH EL DEEB Associated Press CAIRO The same chants used against Hosni Mubarak were turned against his suc cessor Tuesday as more than 200,000 people packed Egypts Tahrir Square in the biggest chal lenge yet to Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. The massive, flag-waving throng protesting Morsis asser tion of near-absolute powers rivaled some of the largest crowds that helped drive Mubarak from office last year. The people want to bring down the regime! and erhal, erhal Arabic for leave, leave rang out across the plaza, this time directed at Egypts first freely elected president. The protests were sparked by edicts Morsi issued last week that effectively neutralize the judiciary, the last branch of gov ernment he does not control. But they turned into a broader out pouring of anger against Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood, which opponents say have used election victories to monopolize power, squeeze out rivals and dictate a new, Islamist constitu tion, while doing little to solve Egypts mounting economic and security woes. Clashes broke out in sev eral cities, with Morsis oppo nents attacking Brotherhood offices, setting fire to at least one. Protesters and Brotherhood members pelted each other with stones and firebombs in the Nile Delta city of Mahalla elKobra, leaving at least 100 people injured. Power has exposed the Brotherhood. We discovered their true face, said Laila Salah, a housewife at the Tahrir protest who said she voted for Morsi in last summers presidential elec tion. After Mubarak, she said, Egyptians would no longer accept being ruled by an autocrat. Its like a wife whose hus band was beating her and then she divorces him and becomes free, she said. If she remarries shell never accept another day of abuse. Gehad el-Haddad, a senior adviser to the Brotherhood and its political party, said Morsi would not back down on his edicts. We are not rescinding the dec laration, he told The Associated Press. That sets the stage for a drawnout battle that could throw the nation into greater turmoil. Protest organizers have called for another mass rally Friday. If the Brotherhood responds with demonstrations of its own, as some of its leaders have hinted, it would raise the prospect of greater violence after a series of clashes between the two camps in recent days. A tweet by the Brotherhood warned that if the opposition was able to bring out 200,000 to 300,000, they should brace for millions in support of Morsi. Another flashpoint could come Sunday, when the constitutional court is to rule on whether to dissolve the assembly writing the new constitution, which is domi nated by the Brotherhood and its Islamist allies. Morsis edicts ban the courts from disbanding the panel; if the court defies him and rules anyway, it would be a direct challenge that could spill over into the streets. Then we are in the face of the challenge between the supreme court and the presidency, said Nasser Amin, head of the Arab Center for the Independence of the Judiciary and the Legal Profession. We are about to enter a serious conflict on both the legal and street level, he said. Morsi and his supporters say the decrees were necessary to prevent the judiciary from block ing the revolutions goals of a transition to democracy. The courts where many Mubarakera judges still hold powerful posts have already disbanded the first post-Mubarak elected parliament, which was led by the Brotherhood. Now it could also take aim at the Islamist-led upper house of parliament. Morsis decrees ban the judi ciary from doing so and grant his decisions immunity from judi cial review. Morsi also gave him self sweeping powers to prevent threats to the revolution, stability or state institutions, which critics say are tantamount to emergency laws. These powers are to remain in effect until the constitution is approved and parliamentary elec tions are held, not likely before spring 2013. Opponents say the decrees turn Morsi who narrowly won last summers election with just over 50 percent of the vote into a new dictator, given that he holds not only executive but also legislative powers, after the lower house of parliament was dissolved. Tuesdays turnout was an unprecedented show of strength by the mainly liberal and secular opposition, which has been divid ed and uncertain amid the rise to power of the Brotherhood over the past year. The crowds were of all stripes, including many firsttime protesters. Suddenly Morsi is issuing laws and becoming the absolute ruler, holding all powers in his hands, said Mona Sadek, a 31-year-old engineering graduate who wears the Islamic veil, a hallmark of piety. Our revolt against the decrees became a protest against the Brotherhood as well. The Brotherhood hijacked the revolution, agreed Raafat Magdi, an engineer who was among a crowd of some 10,000 march ing from the Cairo district of Shubra to Tahrir to the beat of drums and chants against the Brotherhood. Reform leader Mohammed ElBaradei led the march. People woke up to (Morsis) mistakes, and in any new elec tions they will get no votes, Magdi said. Many in the crowd said they were determined to push ahead with the protests until Morsi retreats. A major concern was that Islamists would use the decrees protection of the constitutional assembly to drive through their vision for the next charter, with a heavy emphasis on implement ing Shariah, or Islamic law. The assembly has been plagued with controversy, and more than two dozen of its 100 members have quit in recent days to protest Islamist control. Next Friday will be decisive, protester Islam Bayoumi said of the upcoming rally. If people maintain the same pressure and come in large numbers, they could manage to press the pres ident and rescue the constitu tion. A fellow protester, Saad Salem Nada, said of Morsi: I am a Muslim and he made me hate Muslims because of the dictator ship in the name of religion. In the past, we had one Mubarak. Now we have hundreds. Even as the crowds swelled in Tahrir, clashes erupted nearby between several hundred protest ers throwing stones and police firing tear gas on a street lead ing to the U.S. Embassy. Clouds of tear gas hung over the area, where clashes have broken out for several days, fueled by anger over police abuses.

Progress Energy rate reduction approvedBy BILL KACZORAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE State regulators cut the monthly bill for a typical Progress Energy Florida customer by $7.13 on Tuesday, but rejected a proposal from commercial users for a further reduc-tion linked to a crippled nuclear power plant. Most of the overall rate reduction approved by the five-member Public Service Commission for 2013 is due to the declin-ing price of natural gas thats burned in conven-tional power plants. A smaller part is represented by $327.6 million that the St. Petersburg-based utility expects to receive from an insurer for power it will have to buy from other sources to replace the output of the damaged reactor at Crystal River. It has been out of service for the past three years since a contain-ment wall cracked during an attempt to replace the plants steam generators. Progress previously received $162 million from its $490 million replace-ment power insurance policy. The commercial cus-tomers, though, contend Progress should expect a second $490 million because different parts of the reactors containment building sustained two separate cracks in two dif-ferent years. That would have reduced the replacement power costs passed on to custom-ers by an equal amount. The commission, without discussion of the issue, approved a staff recom-mendation to reject that argument, which was made by the Florida Industrial Power Users Group, PCS Phosphate-White Springs and federal agencies served by Progress. The staff recommendation notes that Nuclear Electric Insurance Ltd. has so far acknowledged only the first event and not made a determination on the second.Associated PressTAMPA Jury selection was under way on Tuesday in the trial of a Florida woman charged with swin-dling a lottery winner out of his money and then killing him. Dorice Dee Dee Moore is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Abraham Shakespeare, a laborer who won a $30 mil-lion Florida Lottery jackpot in 2006. Prosecutors, defense attorneys and Judge Emmett Lamar Battles are having a difficult time find-ing potential jurors who hadnt heard of the case: 41 people from a pool of 100 said they had read or heard some news about Shakespeares death. The trial is unfolding the same week as a record $425 million Powerball jackpot drawing is held. The lurid story of a working-class lottery win-ner who lost his millions and ended up dead beneath concrete slab is akin to a TV crime. FPL rates going upAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE The typical monthly base rate for Florida Power & Light Co.s residential customers will increase by $2.59 in January. The Public Service Commission on Tuesday approved the $246 mil-lion annual rate hike. It will pass on costs asso-ciated with expanding two nuclear power plants that have become opera-tional. The increase more than offsets a $1.65 monthly decrease the commission approved on Monday for nuclear proj-ects not yet completed. That reduction also goes into effect in January. The figures are for a customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours in a month. The commission also is considering a proposal to increase base rates by $4.10 in January and $1.74 in June. Overall rates, though, would not increase in January due to fuel savings. The June increase would be about $1. Trial starts in lottery winner slaying case

The Columbia County native killed a deer on property owned by his son, Don, in the Cone Bridge area. Mr. Thomas used a .308 to take the large spike. He hasnt retired yet, just moved his rocking chair to his deer stand, Don said. Don and brothers Ed and Calvin put Mr. Thomas in position to make the kill. They then tracked the deer and cleaned it. Mr. Thomas is blind in one eye and fighting a cataract in the other. I do it all the time, Mr. Thomas said. We just hunt, hunt, hunt. Mr. Thomas was born in the Deep Creek area and has lived in Columbia County all his life. He had 11 children, eight of whom are still living sons Don, Ed, Calvin, Kim, Danny, Ricky and Darrell and daughter Margaret Johnson. All live in the area except Darrell, who lives in Birmingham, Ala. We harvested timber all my life, Mr. Thomas said. Mr. Thomas also drove a fuel truck for Standard Oil and was a bus driver for 14 years and served as a deputy for Sheriff Ralph Witt. I worked under Ralph Witt for six years full time COURTESY PHOTODan Thomas, 91, of Lake City shows off a deer he killed M onday in the Cone Bridge area. THOMAS continued on 3B Columbia goes west for regional finalBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High hasnt been on the road in over a month, but the Tigers con-tinue their journey toward a state championship at Navarre High on Friday. The regional final will be Columbias final road trip before the state champi-onship. Should the Tigers win, Columbia would host next weeks game to deter-mine who goes to the state championship. It wont be a short ride for the Tigers as Columbia head coach Brian Allen said the team will leave at 9:30 a.m. on Friday with the intentions of arriving at Navarre at 5 p.m. Central time. Were going to travel to Tallahassee before taking a little break to stretch and walk around for about an hour so were not just sit-ting still, Allen said. After that, were going to travel to Crestview and eat before traveling the final hour or so. We plan on arriving at 5 p.m. just like we would if we didnt have to travel this far from home. Allen said the Tigers arent worried about leav-ing the friendly confines of Lake City after being home since Oct. 25. Its not going to be that much different, Allen said. The big thing that gives me confidence about this game is that weve had a four-game hiatus early in the season. At the time, a four-game road stretch was a negative, but its benefi-cial for us to win this one road game that we have in the playoffs. The Tigers have been road warriors this season with only one loss. We walked away with a 4-1 record, so I feel good about our ability to execute on the road, Allen said. I think well be fine. Allen expects the community to be in full support despite the near five-hour drive to the Panhandle. The big thing is this town has been faithful, Allen said. We have trav-eled well. This is a little bit further of a trip, but were all excited. The indication is well have two fan bus-ses going and that doesnt include people who are going to drive on their own. We have a good group of core fans, well have the cheerleaders and the band is going as well. Were hop-ing to turn this into a home away from home. Allen believes that the Tigers will come into the game fresh after being home, but still prepared from the way that Columbia conditions during practice. It goes back to what we do in practice on the tough Tuesday and Wednesdays, Allen said. We had five games where we were only playing two quarters, so I think that will allow us to be fresh. I think were a fresh group and we havent been getting beat up in games week in and week out. Its enabled us to be physical in practice. Allen said he still has no plans for the Tigers to remove their pads as they continue their trek through the playoffs. Well determine if we need to take the pads off and reduce reps in the weight room, but their bod-ies havent told me that we need to do that, Allen said. Were not beat up. If were not looking fresh, we may change up our routine, but right now the plan is to keep everything the same as weve been doing every week. So far that plan has worked.

Columbia takes on Navarre in regional final.
The LGA played a blitz format that ended in a first-place tie between Roberta Whitaker and Cathy Steen at +1. Trish Holm and Nicole Ste-Marie pulled their points on the nose to tie for third. The big news was in the chip-in game. Whitaker scored two of the elusive shots from off the green on Nos. 11 and 15. Dottie Rogers added hers on No. 7, Nancy Edgar holed out on No. 5, and Suzi Davis completed the skill shot barrage on No. 3. Don Howard (+7) dodged three birdies from Steve Thomas (+6) and two from Pete Skantos (+6) to take the win in Sundays blitz. Dell Sanders (+5) was in fourth place followed by Mike Gough and Steve Patterson in fifth. Patterson claimed a skin with an eagle on No. 16. Terry Hunter and Thomas each had a skin. Closest to the pin winners were Skantos on Nos. 5 and 15, Hank Rone on No. 7 and Hunter on No. 17. Aaron Gresham and Donna Lamb combined for a 61 in the mixed team alternate shot tournament to take a three-shot win over the twosome of Ed Snow and Natalie Bryant. Michael and Lucy Gresham finished in third with a 68. Timmy Rogers late birdie earned a win at +9 in the A flight of Wednesdays blitz. Buddy Slay eagled No. 9 to take second at +7. Mike Jacobs and Hank Rone tied for third at +6. In B flight, Keith Shaw (+4) also birdied late to take the win over Pete Skantos (+3). Eddy Brown, Emerson Darst and Bud Johnson were another two points back in third. Dennis Crawford picked up two skins including an eagle on No. 2. Other skins winners were Jonathan Allen, Mike McCranie, Slay, Rogers and Jacobs. Both pot holes carried over. Keith Shaw (+9) rode four birdies to an easy win in the Saturday blitz. No one got the upper hand in a three-way battle for sec-ond. Steve Peters, Timmy Rogers and Jonathan Allen finally settled for a tie at +4. Randy Sommers took fifth place. Two of Shaws birdies won skins. Mike Carr and Rogers had one skin apiece. In Good Old Boys play the threesome of Marc Risk, Don Christensen and Dan Stephens poured on the points to rout the team of Ed Snow, Eli Witt, Howard Whitaker and Joe Persons, 11-5. Match two was another runaway win, this time for the team of Don Howard, Shelton Keen, Merle Hibbard and Jim Stevens, 7-3, over the team of Rob Brown, Stan Woolbert, Hugh Sherrill and Bobby Simmons. The final match was the days nail-biter. After a lot of give and take, the team of Jerry West, Tony Branch, Emerson Darst and Nick Whitehurst squeezed out a 7-6 win over the foursome of Monty Montgomery, Tom Elmore, Jim Bell and Paul Davis. Montgomery (35-39-74) took medalist honors by a stroke over Snow (39-36-75). Risk was another stroke back with 37-39-76. Woolbert and Howard both shot 77, followed by Christensen (78), West (79) and Stephens (79). In club match play Phillip Russell defeated previously unbeaten Garrett Odom 5 and 2 to set up the final match of this years Match Play Championship. The two had previously met in the third round with Odom squeaking out a 1 up victory over Russell. This time the match was dominated by Russell, set-ting up the rubber match for all the marbles. The match should be completed Sunday to crown the Quail Heights Match Play Champion for 2012. Wednesday Blitz results were: first-Woodrow Lynch +7; second-Joe Herring +3; third-Tony Johnson +2. Skin winners were Keith Hudson, Tony Kent, Johnson and Lynch. The Friday Dogfight was a runaway win for Brian Shead at +7. Woodrow Lynch was second at +4. Skin winners were Joe Herring and Billy Ryan (2). Closest to pin winners were Richard Skipper, Nos. 3 and 15, Brian Shead, No. 5, Ken Kellum, No. 11 Billy Ryan, No. 17. In the Sunday Scramble the team of Chet Carter, Wallace Christie, Jerry Connell and Brian Shead captured the win with no pot rollover. The MGA Championship is Dec. 15-16.

Kentucky has hired Florida State defensive coordina-tor Mark Stoops as the Wildcats football coach. Stoops replaces Joker Phillips, who was fired on Nov. 4. Phillips went 13-24 in three seasons at Kentucky and the Wildcats were 0-8 in the Southeastern Conference this year. Kentucky made the announcement on Tuesday and the 45-year-old Stoops will be introduced here at a news conference on Sunday. No. 13 Florida State (10-2) plays Georgia Tech Saturday in the Atlantic Coast Conference champi-onship game. Stoops hiring concludes a quicker-than-expected coaching search by the university. After Saturdays season-ending loss at Tennessee, Kentucky athletic director Mitch Barnhart said he had no timetable to find a replace-ment for Phillips. But it didnt take long for Barnhart and the Wildcats to make a move. The deci-sion makes Stoops a head coach for the first time in his career. I want to thank (Kentucky) President Eli Capilouto and Mitch Barnhart for this opportu-nity, Stoops said in a statement. I promise the faith-ful of the Big Blue Nation I will be focused and driven to create a positive, win-ning atmosphere for the program and an environ-ment that all of Kentucky can be proud of. Stoops becomes the third brother in college footballs famed coaching family to lead his own pro-gram. Older brother Bob Stoops is the head coach at Oklahoma and Mike Stoops is the Sooners defensive coordinator. Before joining the Oklahoma staff this year, Mike was the head coach at Arizona. Mark Stoops has been the Seminoles defensive coordinator the past three seasons. Florida States defense was ranked 108th when he took over and he has turned the Seminoles into one of the nations top defensive teams. The Seminoles have the nations second-ranked defense, giving up 249.4 yards per game. Kentucky allowed 391 yards a contest.

They didnt pay us enough, so I left and went back in the timber business. Mr. Thomas attended school at Falling Creek and Deep Creek and eventually at Columbia High. I went up to the seventh grade, but had to quit and go to work, he said. Sallie Reddick and Mr. Thomas have been companions since 1990. Both had two spouses before they met. He is a wonderful man, Reddick said. There is so much history there. He taught all the kids how to live off the land. We are each others late love and he is the love of my life. The family gathers several times a year for celebrations. Mr. Thomas next birthday is April 17. His advice for others: Keep on going. Dont quit.

ACC honors Dukes Cutcliffe, Miami running back JohnsonAssociated PressGREENSBORO, N.C. Dukes David Cutcliffe is the Atlantic Coast Conferences coach of the year and Miami running back Duke Johnson is its overall rookie of the year. The league announced its coaching and rookie honor-ees Tuesday. Johnson also was named the top offensive rookie fol-lowing a vote of 46 mem-bers of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association while Florida State corner-back Ronald Darby won the defensive rookie of the year. Cutcliffe received 25 votes, while Clemsons Dabo Swinney had seven and Florida States Jimbo Fisher received five. Cutcliffe, the Southeastern Conferences coach of the year in 2003 at Mississippi, led the Blue Devils to a 6-6 record and their first bowl berth since 1994. Johnson received 34 votes for the overall award to 11 for Marylands Stephon Diggs. Johnson also had 35 votes and Diggs had 10 for the offensive rookie of the year award. Darby received 14 votes for the defensive award to nine for Miami safety Deon Bush and eight for Georgia Tech linebacker Jabari Hunt-Days. Johnson became the first Miami player to win the rookie award following a breakout season in which he broke Clinton Portis 13-year-old school rushing record for freshmen, ending the year with 947 yards. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort Whites Max Jovel (8) battles it out with Interlachen Hi ghs Ezra Sheffield (10) for possession of the ball during a game on Tuesday. Interlachen too much for boys, Lady Indians tie By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Fort White Highs girls soccer team played to a score-less tie against Interlachen High on Tuesday. The boys team would have settled for the same result in a 7-1 loss. They beat us 2-0 last time we played at their house, Lady Indians coach Perry Sauls said. We have so many inex-perienced players moving around that were trying to find out what works. I think that weve found something that seems to work this week. Overall, I couldnt ask for anything more out of the effort of this team. The Lady Indians are 3-5-3 on the season. For the boys, the game started out on the right side of things as Anthony Gonzalez scored the games first goal with 30:58 remaining in the first half. Interlachen tied the game at 23:12 and went ahead with 21:17 in the first half. Interlachen added one more goal in the first half and three more in the second half for the 7-1 final.
DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married for five years. I recently discovered that she made between 10 and 20 porn videos when she was 19. We got married when she was 27. We have four kids from two previous mar-riages. I am devastated. When I confronted her about it, she cried harder than I had ever seen. She said she was lost, and its the biggest regret of her entire life. I understand how hard it can be to tell someone you have done something like this. I havent led a perfect life either, and I have my own skeletons and things that I would never men-tion. But still, I cant get over this. I have never felt pain like this in my entire life and dont know what to do. I love my wife and dont want a divorce, but it haunts my every thought. We have had a great life and I trust her completely. What should I do to get over this? -DEVASTATED IN THE U.S.A. DEAR DEVASTATED: A giant step in the right direction would be to accept that you BOTH had a history before you mar-ried each other, and you both have done things you arent proud of. Then make a list of all the GOOD things you have together, and forgive your wife for making some painful mistakes in the past that she was too ashamed to tell you. It certainly beats divorcing a woman you love over something she cant change. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My wife verbally abuses me con-stantly. We have an 11-month-old child, which is the only reason I tolerate it. While I try hard not to curse back, once in a while I end up doing so. I have sought professional help to cope with her behavior, but the sug-gestions havent helped much. The situation is becoming unbearable, and I dont see it changing any time soon. What should I do? -UNBEARABLE IN VIRGINIA DEAR UNBEARABLE: The suggestions havent helped because you werent the person who needed the professional help; your wife does. In a moment when she is calm, tell her that as much as you care about her and your child, you do not intend to spend the rest of your life being her verbal whipping boy, and if she doesnt get help for her anger issues, you will leave. If she refuses, you should follow through and make sure you get equal custody, if not more, because her volatility could be harmful to your child. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: We are a pair of senior citizens who are very much in love. We have a lot in common and enjoy our companionship. Marriage is not an option because of pensions, bank accounts and more. We would like the whole world to know we are com-mitted and devoted to each other. Would it be unusual, at this late stage, to become engaged with no intention of setting a wed-ding date? -BLISSFUL IN FLORIDA DEAR BLISSFUL: Instead, why not have a commitment ceremony and invite friends and fam-ily to celebrate your love for each other with you? Ask a member of the cler-gy to bless your union. Im sure one would oblige. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Work on personal and professional partnerships. Set up rules, schedules or whatever else is required to avoid setbacks. Back away from the people drag-ging you down and spend more time with the people who can offer you some-thing in return. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Control whatever situation you face. Put a unique touch on whatever you pursue. Revisit old relationships and consider how you can revitalize a situation that you feel has potential. Love is in the stars, and a commitment or change is apparent. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do your own thing. Pursue your dreams, hopes and wishes. Dont settle for less when you know you can have so much more. Speak up honestly about your needs and you will weed out the people who are taking advantage of you. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Spend more time with friends, family or your lover. Personal opportuni-ties will develop if you get involved in an event that interests you. Dont hold back -you have good ideas that will be well received. Love is highlight-ed. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Dont leave room for error. Offer honesty and you will find out where you stand and what can be accom-plished. Problems with your residence or a family member can be expected. Youll have to implement change if you want to avoid discord. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Youll gain knowl-edge by interacting with people in your commu-nity. Knowing what is in demand will help you strategically come up with a service you can offer in order to bring in extra cash. Dont settle for less when you can have more. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Review your past and you will recognize a pat-tern you keep encounter-ing. Set a new standard and strive to use updated means and methods to accomplish your goals. Dont argue a losing battle when you should be fol-lowing your own path. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take time to turn your home into a stress-free sanctuary. You need to find your comfort zone in order to revitalize your creativity. Love and romance are in the stars. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The past will come back to haunt you if you are indulgent emotionally, physically or financially. Reconsider the partnerships you have and if you are benefiting or giv-ing up too much. Put more effort into a creative skill that can bring you greater prosperity. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Being a team player will help you with your professional achieve-ments. Getting along and sharing interests with someone you enjoy spend-ing time with will turn into a long-term partnership. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Choose your words carefully. Dont make a promise you wont be able to keep. Focus on family and stability. Home will be your safety zone and where you should put your time and effort. A visitor will offer positive feedback and inspiration. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Wheel and deal until you get what you want. Offer a creative plan that will be difficult to ignore. There is money to be made and partnerships to be formed. Dont feel you must compete or outdo when you just have to fol-low your heart. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
