By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comFlorida Leaders Organized for Water recognized problems with the structure of the organization and have decided to set a specific goal for the group to achieve. Members of FLOW met Monday in the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex at 6 p.m. and discussed the difficulties of accomplishing what the group was formed to do -protect the water resources of the area. Some board members are frustrated with the lack of a concrete mission state-ment and a lack of a strategy on how to accom-plish the goals. Frank Darabi, rep-resentative for the city of Macclenny and chairman of the Science commit-tee for FLOW, said he is confused with the goal of the organization and until the organization under-stands what it wants to accom-plish, its members can’t accom-plish anything. “Unless that is done, we just sitting and talking,” Darabi said. District One Columbia County Commissioner and chairman of FLOW Ron Williams said he agreed FLOW needs to set a spe-cific goal. “I don’t want this committee to get like Washington where we can’t get nothing done,” said “There’s a lot of different person-alities on (FLOW) representing a lot of different entities and we got to be able to come together.” However, not everyone agreed that FLOW should select a goal and focus on it. By BEN FELLERAP White House CorrespondentREDFORD, Mich.— President Barack Obama warned Monday that he “won’t com-promise” on his demands that the wealthiest Americans pay more in taxes, digging in on the chief sticking point between the White House and Republicans as they seek a way to avert the “fiscal cliff.” Obama brought his pressure-Congress campaign to the heart of industrial America, ripping lines from his own re-election bid as the nation inched closer to a perilous economic cliff. He said the country couldn’t afford a “manufactured” crisis and pledged to cheering auto workers that he would fight to extend tax cuts for the middle class before they expire at year’s end. “That’s a hit you can’t afford to take,” Obama declared. Obama’s campaign-style trip to Michigan came one day after he and House Speaker John Boehner met privately at the White House. While neither side would charac-terize the meeting, the mere fact that the two leaders talked face-to-face was seen as progress in negotiations to avoid a series of year-end tax hikes and spending cuts. Republicans have long opposed Obama’s call for higher tax rates on the wealthy, but some GOP lawmakers are suggesting the party relent on taxes in order to win con-cessions from the president on changes to benefit programs such as Medicare. Still, Boehner’s office indicated Monday that the speaker wasn’t ready to take that step. “The Republican offer made last week remains the Republican offer,” said Brendan Buck, a Boehner spokesman. He was refer-ring to a GOP plan that offered $800 bil-lion in new revenue over the next decade through reducing or eliminating unspecified tax breaks on upper-income earners, but not by raising tax rates.

ASSOCIATED PRESSThis handout provided by the Federal Trade Commission shows the cover of FTC’s “Mobile Apps for Kids.” Govt. looking atcell-app makersBy RICHARD LARDNERAssociated PressWASHINGTON — The government is investigating whether software companies that make cellphone apps have violated the privacy rights of children by quietly col-lecting personal information from phones and sharing it with advertisers and data brokers, the Federal Trade Commission said Monday. Such apps can capture a child’s physical location, phone numbers of their friends and more.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Already sitting on top of District 5-4A, Fort White High’s basketball team flexed its muscles even more on Monday. The Indians beat visiting Keystone Heights High, 62-23. Fort White’s starting five went to the bench with 3:00 remaining in the first quar-ter and left a 23-2 lead for the subs. The starters would only play a couple of short stints the rest of the game, but the bench kept the contest well in hand. Fort White led 30-2 at the end of the first quarter, 39-7 at the half, and 56-16 after three quarters. The running clock kicked in for the fourth quarter. Keystone Heights (1-7, 0-5) opened in a zone. Trey Phillips and Melton Sanders quickly loosened it up with 3-pointers. Sanders added a six-point spurt and had all of his game-high 11 points in the first quarter. Jalen Wyche had seven straight points before coach Isiah Phillips sat the starters. Kaleel Jackson came in and immediately hit a 3-pointer, and Brandon Myers followed with a trey. Jackson finished with 10 points, as did Wyche. Paul Perry scored seven points, with six apiece from Joe Powers and Dre Brown, five from Myers and Phillips, and two from Chris Cottrell. Robbie Kerr led Keystone Heights with eight points and Nate Smith chipped in six. Fort White also won the junior varsity game, 52-40. Fort White (6-0, 4-0) hosts Interlachen High at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Fort White will bring in Columbia High next Monday for a 7:30 p.m. game, and wrap up the pre-Christmas schedule against Williston High on Dec. 21. By BRETT MARTELAssociated PressFormer NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue will rule Tuesday after-noon on the latest round of player appeals in the NFL’s bounty probe, and any potential punishment will be delayed by a week, a person familiar with the decision said. The delay is designed to give a federal judge in New Orleans the opportunity to rule on pending motions to throw out the suspen-sions and remove Tagliabue as the appointed arbitrator for the player appeals to the league, said the person, who spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because no rulings have been announced. The NFL’s decision to delay potential sanctions for four cur-rent or former Saints also means linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Will Smith may play Sunday when New Orleans hosts Tampa Bay. If the sanctioned players find Tagliabue’s decision palatable, that could finally bring the bounty saga to an end more than nine months after the NFL first made public its probe of New Orleans’ cash-for-hits program. If not, it will be up to U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan to disqualify Tagliabue or let his rul-ing stand. Current and former Saints players and coaches have acknowledged the existence of a performance pool that rewarded key defensive plays including hard, legal tackles, but have denied organizing or par-ticipating in a program designed to intentionally injure opponents. If Vilma, Smith, Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove get the ruling they seek, it would discredit an NFL probe — overseen by Commissioner Roger Goodell — which covered three seasons and gathered about 50,000 pages of documents. The probe concluded that Vilma and Smith were ring-leaders of a cash-for-hits program that reward-ed injurious tackles labeled as “cart-offs” and “knockouts.” The NFL also concluded that Hargrove lied to NFL investigators to help cover up the program. Vilma received full-season suspension, while Smith was docked four games. Hargrove initially received an eight game suspension that was later trimmed to seven games, but for practical purposes, was reduced to two games because he was given credit for five games he missed as a free agent after being cut by Green Bay before the regular season opener. Fujita had his initial suspension reduced from three games to one, with the league saying that he failed in his duty as a defensive leader to discourage the bounty program run by for-mer defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who was suspended indefinitely and Saints head coach Sean Payton for a full season.

Indians roll onMularkey released from hospitalBy MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE — Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey is out of the hospital and feeling fine. The Jaguars said Mularkey was released Monday afternoon after a brief stay that included tests. Mularkey showed up at the facility a day after his team’s 17-10 loss to the New York Jets and started feeling ill. He went to a team trainer, who took him to a nearby hospital. The team offered few other details about his illness. But the Jaguars (2-11) said Mularkey is expect-ed back at work today. “He seemed to be doing pretty good,” said defen-sive coordinator Mel Tucker, who informed players about Mularkey’s absence at a team meet-ing Monday afternoon. “I look forward to having him back in here.” Jacksonville, which has lost nine of its last 10, plays at Miami (5-8) on Sunday. The Jaguars will be looking to avoid a third consecutive meltdown in the second half. The Jags led the New York Jets 3-0 on Sunday before 17 unanswered points. The same thing happened the previous week at Buffalo, where the Bills scored 17 straight in the second half to turn a close game into a rout. “Players are frustrated, guys are frustrated with the way the season has gone,” guard Uche Nwaneri said. “We’ve had numerous opportunities to close teams out. If you look at our season game by game, there’s five or six games in there eas-ily that if we would have been able to execute just a little bit better those are wins instead of losses.” The biggest problem the last two weeks has been Jacksonville’s run defense. The Jets ran for 116 yards in the second half, including a seven-play, touchdown drive that included seven consecu-tive runs by Bilal Powell. The Bills ran for 158 yards in the second half the previous week.

SYDNEY T hey say they expected a hang-up and a few laughs. Instead, the Australian DJs behind a hoax phone call to the London hospi tal where the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge was being treated were deeply apologetic Monday as they described how their joke ended up going too far. The phone call in which they impersonated Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles went through, and their station broadcast and even trumpeted the confidential informa tion received. Whatever pride there had been over the hoax was obliter ated by worldwide public outrage after Fridays death of Jacintha Saldanha, the first nurse they talked to. Theres not a minute that goes by that we dont think about her family and what they must be going through, 2DayFM radio host Mel Greig told Australias A Current Affair, her voice shaking. And the thought that we may have played a part in that is gut-wrenching. Police have not disclosed the cause of Saldanhas death, but many have assumed it was related to the stress from the call. An autopsy is being held today. Mexican music star dies in plane crash LOS ANGELES Jenni Rivera launched her career hawking cas sette recordings of her songs at flea markets, but a powerful voice, soul ful singing style and frank discussion of personal troubles powered her to the heights of a male-dominated industry, transforming her into the one of the biggest stars of the genre known as grupero. Her life was cut short at its peak on Sunday by an airplane crash in northern Mexico that also killed six friends and coworkers. The 43-year-old mother of five and grandmother of two became a symbol of resilience for mil lions of fans on both sides of the U.S.Mexican border. Her fame grew as she branched out into acting, appear ing in independent film, reality TV and the televised singing competi tion La Voz Mexico. Riveras plane was taking her and aides to the central Mexican city of Toluca after a Saturday night concert before thousands in the northern city of Monterrey. Born on July 2, 1969 in Westwood, California, Janney Dolores Rivera Savedra often said she started her singing career in flea markets in the Los Angeles area, selling cassette tapes to fans.

By JENNA FRYERAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. — Tony Eury Jr. will return to the Sprint Cup Series as crew chief for David Stremme at upstart Swan Racing. The Monday hiring was part of new owner Brandon Davis’ plan to use the off-season to make the team competitive. “We have a long-term vision for Swan Racing and the addition of Tony Jr. is another step in that process,” said Davis, CEO of independent oil and gas company Swan Energy. “Tony brings a world of experience to Swan Racing and will be part of our long-term success.” Eury had spent the last three seasons as crew chief for Danica Patrick at JR Motorsports until his release from the Nationwide Series team in September because of a difference in philosophy between Eury and Dale Earnhardt Jr., his cousin. Eury also had been a coowner of JR Motorsports. He won 19 Sprint Cup races with Michael Waltrip and Earnhardt at Dale Earnhardt Inc., and went with Earnhardt to Hendrick Motorsports in 2008. He and Earnhardt won a pair of races at Hendrick Motorsports, but were split apart 12 races into the 2009 season. Eury then moved full-time to JR Motorsports. At Swan Racing, he’ll be re-united with director of competition Steve Hmiel, whom Eury worked for at DEI. Davis announced Hmiel’s hiring last week. “I am really impressed with the team Swan Racing is building and I am proud to be part of it,” Eury said. “I am looking forward to working with David Stremme behind the wheel and with competition direc-tor Steve Hmiel.” Stremme is thrilled with the direction of the team, which is making key hires and is committed to race next season. Stremme parked early in 20 of 28 races last season. “The team has transformed itself virtually over-night. It’s hard to believe just how different this team is in such a short period of time,” Stremme said. “This is how you build success from the ground up, you hire quality people, put their experience to work and execute on race day.

Officer Donald Miles investigated and determined that eight of the vehicles had been broken into and the car stereos had been removed starting around Nov. 16 and continuing through Dec. 6. Miles was able to determine the burglar parked their vehicle at a nearby business and cut a hole in the chain link fence to steal the stereos. The vehicles were not owned by the dealership and were left for repairs at the body and fender shop. The owners of the vehicles have not reported any other items missing. The police department is asking the public to report anything suspicious in the area during that time frame. The police said to call Investigator Mitchell Cline at 752-4344 or to leave a tip anonymously at 719-2068. Dont get yourself nar row minded enough to look in one direction, Dixie County representative Gene Higginbotham said. At the meeting, commit tee members broke into groups and discussed how to fix some of the prob lems. Some of the difficulty stems from the problems of organizing a group as large as FLOW. The group has 17 board members, which make up five committees. The group has to operate inside Floridas open gov ernment laws, which keeps members from talking pri vately about issues that will be voted on in public meet ings. Helen Miller, represen tative for White Springs, said the committee shes on, the legislative commit tee, needs to meet more than every month, and that there have been difficulties in scheduling meetings. We have a short time line, its December and the legislature is meeting in March..., she said. One size may not fit all, in this case. The legislative commit tee decided to meet every Monday at 6 p.m. The legis lative committee will meet at the Dixie Diner in Cross City on Dec. 17 at 6 p.m. The meeting ended with Williams asking the Science committee to pro vide the board with a rec ommendation on what the goal should be and what steps will be needed. You compare the springs and rivers 20 years ago year for year to where they are now, a blind man can see the difference, Williams said. Something has got to happen, this is where I think the science committee really should step up and say here is what we want to do, here is what we want to present to move forward, here is what direction we should go..., he said. doing this? Young did not reply. While Young lay on top of the victim, he pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed the victim in the left side of her chest. He stabbed her several more times in differ ent locations. Sometime during the attack, Young grabbed a book bag and pushed it over the victims face, according to the report. The victim was stabbed several times in her chest, head and hand, police said. The victim told police she continued to yell for help and beg Young to stop. After several minutes, Young stopped, according to the report. The victim pleaded with Young not to hurt her anymore. According to the report, Young then left. The victim told police she asked Young several times to help her out of the house. She asked him to drag her outside, according to the report, but he refused and did not seek medical assis tance for the woman. The victim finally made it outside, then walked several blocks looking for help. Around Wright Street, an unidentified person called law enforcement, according to the report. The victim was transported to Shands at UF in Gainesville. She had a punctured lung, but her injuries werent life-threaten ing when the report was filed, authorities said. Young reportedly admitted stabbing the woman to police. He said the altercation began over a sexual act she refused to perform. Young was booked into Columbia County Jail with no bond. Friday at about 7:30 p.m. and walked to the mens cologne section. He reportedly picked out a bottle of cologne and headed toward the sporting goods section of the store. According to the report, McFatten attempted to conceal the cologne and walk past the checkout aisle and through the garden center without paying. At that point, Rogelio Cobos and Jaime Davis, Walmart loss prevention employ ees, followed McFatten into the parking lot and tried to speak to him, according to the report. McFatten avioded the men. Cobos and Davis followed McFatten to the south end of the parking lot where McFatten tried to run away from them. Davis grabbed McFatten and tried to hold him down. Davis told police he made McFatten stand and tried to make him walk back to Walmart, according to the report. Davis told police McFatten tried to escape again, but this time durring the struggle McFatten pulled out a razor blade from his pocket and cut Davis on the right hand, right hamstring and left arm, accord ing to the report. Davis told police that while was running away he also cut Cobos on the left arm. Both men said they followed McFatten while he was running away. They said he entered a dark colored Ford Escape and headed west on US 90, according to the report. On Sunday, Walmart loss prevention called the Lake City Police Department to report the dark colored Ford Escape that Mcfatten used had just left the Walmart parking lot and was parked behind the Lake City Mall. The Lake City Police Department made contact with the vehicle and identified McFatten. Cobos identified Mcfatten as the person who allegedly tried to steal Walmart property and then cut him with a razor blade on Friday. McFatten was booked into Columbia County Jail in lieu of $26,000 bond. young consumers is adequately protected. The FTC did not say which or how many companies it was investigating. Among 400 apps designed for kids exam ined by the FTC, most failed to inform par ents about the types of data the app could gather and who could access it, the report said. Others apps contained advertising that most parents would find objectionable or included links to Facebook, Twitter and other social media services where kids post information about themselves. The report said mobile apps can siphon data to invisible and unknown third par ties that could be used to develop a detailed profile of a child without a parents knowl edge or consent. Its not hypothetical that this informa tion was shared, said Jessica Rich, associ ate director of the FTCs financial practices division. The FTC also said it was investigat ing whether any of the apps developers engaged in unfair or deceptive trade prac tices, which would be illegal. In one case mentioned in the report, an app that allows children to paint pictures and save them in an online photo gallery didnt indicate that it includes advertis ing. But investigators said the app ran an ad across the bottom of the screen for an online dating service that said, See 1000+ Singles. The FTC would not identify any compa nies it was investigating until a complaint is filed, Rich said. She said the agency expects the report will light a fire under the industry. Were not naming names, in part because we think this is a systematic prob lem, and we dont want people to think that if they avoid certain apps that theyre home free, Rich said. The commission is considering major changes to a 1998 law, the Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act, that would impose tougher online safeguards for chil dren under 13. Technology companies have warned that the proposed changes are too aggressive and could discourage them from producing kid-friendly content on the Internet. But public interest groups have pushed hard for the changes, say ing expanded use of mobile devices and methods for collecting personal data have outpaced rules put in place more than a decade ago. The commissioners are expected to vote on the revisions to the law within weeks. Among the proposed changes is a require ment to prohibit the use of behavioral marketing techniques to track and target children unless a parent approves.

DEAR ABBY: My husband wears a hairpiece. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look very real. Nearly every time we are in a public place, I notice some-body staring or laughing at it. I have talked to him about it only a couple of times, but each time he tells me how attached he is to it and how good it feels on his head. I want him to be happy, but I do not want him to be publicly ridiculed. Should I throw it away? -WIFE OF A MAN WITH A “SECRET” DEAR WIFE: Absolutely not. If you want to help your husband, start talk-ing with some hairstylists. There may be a product on the market that is more convincing than what your husband is wearing. (Depending upon how much hair he has on the back of his head, a trans-plant of some follicles may also be possible.) This isn’t just about him having something on his head that “feels good.” If it was only that, he’d be wearing a hat. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am recently married, and my husband and I have not consummated our mar-riage. I made it very clear that this would not be a part of our life together, and he agreed long before we took our vows. We sleep separately. Recently, my husband has become sullen and passive-aggressive. He tries to push the issue, to the point of making unwanted physical contact. We love each other, but his behavior is starting to take a toll on me and the stress is straining our relationship. Please help. -ASEXUAL IN LOVE DEAR ASEXUAL: For the kind of marriage you envisioned, BOTH parties must feel the same way about sex. Because he agreed to something he can’t live with, it might be better for both of you if you separated. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Would you please settle a disagree-ment I’m having with my mother’s boyfriend? The three of us go out to eat together often. Most times we “go Dutch” and pay for our own meals. The problem arises when he pays for my meal. He’ll request the senior price for all of us because he’s paying. I believe the senior discount should apply to the seniors in the group only, and mine should be the regular price. I don’t think it’s wrong to ask for the senior discount for theirs when I’m paying, but do not feel right claiming it for mine. (I’m more than 20 years away from qualify-ing.) It embarrasses me when he does it. I’d much rather pay the full adult price. Shouldn’t a senior discount apply to items being purchased for the senior, or should the senior be able to apply their discount for everyone at the table, even if the person is under-age? -KIM IN IOWA CITY DEAR KIM: Senior discounts are intended to accommodate people who are presumably retired and living on a fixed income. That said, various restaurants make their own rules. If they are will-ing to comply when your mother’s boyfriend asks that everyone be included in the discount, it’s no reflection on you if he’s the one doing the asking and paying the bill. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Finish overdue proj-ects that have to do with legal, financial or health issues. Travel to whatever destinations will help you push through paperwork. Complete anything that may hold you back next year. A creative investment made now will pay off. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Make your year-end plans to ensure you don’t miss visiting someone spe-cial. Traveling, communi-cating and sharing with the people who mean the most to you will bring you closer together. Be creative when shopping for gifts or per-sonal items. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Ignore anyone stand-ing in the way of your progress. It’s important not to let your emotions take over, causing you to be excessive or outspoken. Job interviews look prom-ising if you stick to the truth regarding what you can offer. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): An unusual visit or short jaunt to a destination that sparks ideas to moti-vate, inspire or excite the people you love will pay off. Don’t let someone at work cause you to worry about something that is not your responsibility. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take the stage. Set up events or whatever else you can do to win favors and boost your reputation. Don’t let your insecurities or someone eager to put you down lead to waffling. You should be intent on following through with plans. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Separate your work and your personal life in order to avoid suspicious innuendoes or a scene based on unwarranted emotional overreaction. You are best to keep the peace. Don’t confuse some-one’s motives or capability to make you look bad. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Backtrack if it will help you put your per-sonal matters in order. It’s important to address unfin-ished business that entails seeing someone you have had feelings for in the past. Let your intuition guide you regarding children, loved ones and money. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can’t lose if you follow your gut feeling when it comes to personal matters. An impulsive move won’t pay off, but a well-thought-out and pre-cisely executed attempt will. An honest, heartfelt effort will lead to good fortune. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A surprise may leave you speechless. Try not to show your emo-tions. Positive actions will far exceed the results you get if you are dishonest, negative or uncompromis-ing. Focus on decorative changes you can make at home, but stick to a bud-get. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Join in any activity that will allow you to get to know your associ-ates better. The chance to share your thoughts and to claim a good position among your peers will result in offering favors that will buy future sup-port. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Listen to author-ity and follow the rules to avoid any mishap that might cost you personally. Don’t question someone’s feelings when you should be considering your motives. Positive changes at home will help your situ-ation. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Say little, do more. Your actions will deter-mine what others think of you. Leading someone on will not bode well in the end. Focus on family funds and putting aside cash that will allow you to share with the ones you love. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com F lorida Leaders Organized for Water, or FLOW, has been a little slow getting out of the blocks since its inception late last year. Formed in response to the St. Johns River Water Management District’s notori-ous 155 million gallon-per-day JEA permit, FLOW hit a stumbling block early on when legal counsel advised the permit couldn’t likely be overturned. Since then, with no clear cause to champion, the group has, frankly, floundered. Not because its members weren’t committed to preserving, protecting and defending our most precious natural resource – but because that cause is far too broad, far too massive, to take on all at once. So last night FLOW, led by Chairman Ron Williams, made a really smart move. Williams asked the FLOW Science committee to do some research and come up with a plan to better focus the group’s efforts. Should FLOW’s main concern be on future consumptive use permits such as the 20-year license given JEA, which, some say, are a major culprit in depleting the aquifer? Or should the emphasis be elsewhere – perhaps on promoting conservation or recharging the aquifer? The Science committee will report back its findings, make a recommendation and the entire board will vote on it. That way, FLOW, with a clear, specified aim, will have a fighting chance to make a difference in what may turn out to be the fight of our lives. It may be only a start, but it’s a darned good one. FLOW gets serious OUR OPINION I n the ever-expanding world of self-impor-tant celebrities, one of the common questions, especially asked of women, is, “Who are you wearing?” This uppity question bounces around the Oscars, the Golden Globes, the Emmys, fancy black-tie dinners and the White House. What these people want to know is the brand name — the designer’s name — of the dress that the woman on the red carpet is almost wearing. A suitable answer would be John Galliano or Colleen Atwood or Coco Chanel. You never hear anyone mention Red Camel, Liz Claiborne or Fruit of the Loom. Expensive designer clothes, if you ask me, are overrated and over-emphasized. Just look at all of the pomp and pag-eantry that swirl around Prince William and Kate and everything they wear. It’s news, appar-ently, when Kate wears the same dress twice. Who would think of such a thing? Apparently, it doesn’t bother Kate, but fashion snobs seem to be surprised at the idea. I wouldn’t know a Christian Dior from a veal cutlet, but I know a good name in men’s clothing when I hear it. I’m not talking about who designed the garment. I’m talking about who wore it. For example, I wear a denim jacket by Edwin Hudgins. That was my father, a railroad man. I own a jumper coat by Barto Hudgins. That was my grandfather, a farmer. I have a Coca-Cola jacket by Dean Stevens, an employee of Coke. That was my uncle. And now I’m wearing shoes by Bill Dupree, right-hand man for a builder of custom homes. That was my friend. Bill died about 18 months ago, leaving our neighborhood without the friendliest, most natural smile in the whole county. Everybody loved Bill Dupree. He was a kind, godly man who always had a good word to share. He could brighten your day. His death has left a huge void in the Dupree home, and his widow, Sue, has decided to move. She dreaded packing up Bill’s things, so she asked a number of friends, including my wife and me, to help one Sunday afternoon. We packed Bill’s clothes. Boxes of clothes. You wouldn’t know it — he wasn’t one to say anything — but Bill obvi-ously loved clothes. And it was our job to find new homes for Bill’s shirts and pants and suits and shorts and sweaters and sweats and ties. That’s what we did. We found new homes. My brother will be wear-ing Bill Dupree suits. My next-door neighbor and his son and his housekeeper’s husband and friends will be wear-ing Bill Dupree shirts. About two dozen men in a rehab program for addictions will be wearing Bill Dupree golf shirts. Men who live in dirt-floor shacks in a garbage dump in Guatemala will be wearing Bill Dupree shirts and sweaters. Men who benefit from the Salvation Army’s Christmas bell-ringing will wear Bill Dupree pants and coats. I am wearing Bill Dupree shoes. So if anyone ever asks me, “Who are you wear-ing?” I’ll say, “I’m wearing Bill Dupree. And proud of it.” Q Phil Hudgins is senior editor of Community Newspapers Inc. Phil Hudginsphudgins@cninewspapers.com‘Who are you wearing?’ Fashion names that have real meaningOn this date:In 1792, France’s King Louis XVI went before the Convention to face charges of treason. (Louis was con-victed, and executed the following month.) In 1816, Indiana became the 19th state.In 1928, police in Buenos Aires announced they had thwarted an attempt on the life of President-elect Herbert Hoover. In 1936, Britain’s King Edward VIII abdicated the throne so he could marry American divorcee Wallis Warfield Simpson; his brother, Prince Albert, became King George VI. HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY I n 1947, the Central Intelligence Agency was created to fill the vacuum left by the dissolution of the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS). But it was nearly thwarted by a major concern: that it would become an agent of domestic intru-sion, to the detriment of all Americans. In other words, no one would be immune from its prying eyes. With the examples of Hitler’s Gestapo and Stalin’s secret police in front of them, members of Congress and their con-stituents were sensitive to the possible dangers of unintended consequences. Their basic freedoms, they believed, were always at stake in govern-ments that history had shown could turn despotic overnight, particularly with such a broad-based intelligence weapon. Among those fueling this argument were con-servative factions, helped along by publishing giant Robert McCormick of the Chicago Tribune. His chief political writer in Washington was leaked a story from the White House suggest-ing a conspiracy to spy on Americans. President Harry Truman had political reasons for its circulation. He didn’t want the new CIA’s architect, former OSS chief and Roosevelt loyal-ist William (Wild Bill) Donovan, to be its first director. Washington law enforcement titan J. Edgar Hoover also was more than a bit uneasy about the new agency, seeing a threat to the future of his own FBI. The result was that the ultimate charter establish-ing this new superspy agency limited its activi-ties to foreign intelligence operations. The FBI — with the automatic restraints of the Justice Department in which it resided — would be responsible for all domes-tic counterintelligence. There would be some necessary coordination between the agencies when the occasion arose. But that occurred less than expected because of a growing animosity between the two, fostered by the long-tenured Hoover. Ironically, Congress now faces another dilem-ma not unlike that one — whether to sanction the extension of warrantless electronic interceptions of emails and telephone calls of foreigners overseas. Some say these activities are absolutely necessary in the war on terror-ism; others argue that they often encroach on legitimate conversations by Americans talking to foreign subjects. The House has approved the extension and the Senate must do so by the end of the year or the authority expires. The activity is sanctioned once a year by a special court under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. There is no arguing that under this blanket approach to approval, the intercepts already have invaded the privacy of count-less citizens. A group of determined senators wants to know how many communications involv-ing Americans have been collected. They also want the government to obtain court approval before pro-cessing data gleaned from individual U.S. citizens. People are kidding themselves if they believe in the government’s abil-ity to protect the interests of the rest of us while simply culling the seeds of destruction that led to countless attempts at ter-rorism, including Sept. 11, 2001. As an example of what can happen with-out proper restraints, an old friend cites the case of a man who’s stopped on a street corner by a stranger asking for a light. He supplies the light, passes a few pleasantries, and smiles and hands the stranger his matchbook before saying good day. Unbeknownst to the man, the stranger is under gov-ernment surveillance; the next thing he knows, so is he —with every facet of his life being examined. No one wants the government’s hands tied in responding quickly to possible imminent national danger. But there are legitimate con-cerns, just as there were back in 1947, about how far we can encroach on privacy and other rights without probable cause. Those worries can’t be put aside simply by assur-ances from a government bureaucrat. Robert Litt, general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, told reporters that the law is not a tool for spying on Americans. That may not be intended, but that’s not to say it hasn’t happened as hundreds of our fellow citizens have had their overseas conversations scooped up in what can only be described as a very dangerous exercise. Electronic intercepts pose threats Dan K. Thomasson Q Dan K. Thomasson is former editor of Scripps Howard News Service.

Tornado damages 40 homes EDGEWATER Forty homes were damaged by a tornado in Volusia County. The Edgewater Fire Department said a torna do touched down Monday afternoon, ripping off roofs of some of the homes. At least a dozen homes were destroyed. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported two people sustained minor scratches. No major inju ries were reported. The damage included trees and power lines down and debris along roadways. Associated Press By KATHY WINGARD Associated Press TAMPA A woman was convicted Monday of first-degree murder in the slaying of a lottery winner in central Florida and sen tenced to mandatory life without parole by a judge who called her cold, calcu lating and cruel. Dorice Dee Dee Moore showed no emotion as a jury foreman read the verdict. Judge Emmett Battles sen tenced her to an additional minimum mandatory 25 years for using a gun in the commission of a felony. Moore has 30 days to appeal. If she decides to, she will be assigned a pub lic defender. The attorney appointed by the court to represent her at trial, Byron Hileman, will no longer rep resent her. I can sleep good at night because I know I had done the very best job, Hileman said. I feel sad for the vic tim. I feel sad for their fami lies. I feel sad for the defen dant because these types of cases are no-win situations. Jurors deliberated for more than three hours before finding Moore guilty of the first-degree murder charge prosecu tors had lodged against her in the death of Abraham Shakespeare, who won mil lions in 2006. Shakespeares mother was in the court room, but showed no emo tion. She got every bit of his money, said Assistant State Attorney Jay Pruner in clos ing arguments. He found out about it and threatened to kill her. She killed him first. Hileman argued that there were other potential suspects whom prosecutors refused to consider. There were a lot of people who owed Mr. Shakespeare a lot of money. One guy owed him a million dollars, he said during his closing arguments. The police focused on Dee Dee Moore and they didnt even con sider other people. Pruner could not be reached for comment imme diately. Battles instructed the jury that it could convict the 40-year-old Moore of a lesser charge. Following the verdict, he called her the most manipulative person he had ever seen, describ ing her as cold, calculating and cruel. Prosecutors built much of their case from confidential informants statements and financial records. Moore was briefly banned from the courtroom Monday over concerns that she may have threatened jurors. She was back a short time later for closing arguments, but said she did not want to take the stand in order to protect her family. Prosecutors said Moore befriended Shakespeare in late 2008, claiming she was writing a book about how people were taking advan tage of him. Jury finds woman guilty in death of lottery winner

By JOSEPH WHITE Associated Press ASHBURN, Va. Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Monday that Robert Griffin III has a mild sprain of a ligament in the right knee and hasnt been ruled out for the upcoming game against the Cleveland Browns. Shanahan said the inju ry is a Grade 1 sprain of the lateral collateral liga ment on the outside of the knee, caused when the rookie quarterback was hit at the end of a scram ble late in regulation in the Redskins 31-28 over time win Sunday over the Baltimore Ravens. Shanahan says Griffin has mild swelling and is receiving treatment mul tiple times a day. Hes definitely not ruled out for the Cleveland game, Shanahan said. The LCL is one of four lig aments in the knee. A Grade 1 sprain typically means the ligament is stretched or has some minor tears. The most severe knee injury usually associ ated with sports is a season-ending torn ACL, the anterior cruciate liga ment. Griffin tore the ACL in his right knee while play ing for Baylor in 2009, but Shanahan said Griffins reconstructed ACL looks great and that theres no problem there. Fellow rookie Kirk Cousins will start if Griffin cant. Cousins threw a touchdown pass with 29 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter and ran in the game-tying 2-point conversion after Griffin was hurt. Both of them will have a game plan, Shanahan said. And obviously Robert can do some things in the run ning game that Kirk cant. The Redskins (7-6) have won four straight and trail the New York Giants by one game in the NFC East. 6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS TUESDAY DECEMBER 11, 2012 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 6BSports Fabric, quilt and custom embroidery 216 S.

Combs Jr. Students in Denise Nashs classes at Lake City Middle School and Richardson Middle School learned great lessons about bulling and community involvement, thanks to the support of numerous community spon sors. It has been an honor to work on such a worthy cause, a cause that affects students and teachers not only within the classroom but also schoolwide, Nash said in a prepared state ment. Bullying is defined as a person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker. We worked hard in my person al/community involvement class ... and with the commu nity, to educate everyone on how important it is to stop being a bystander and speak up for individuals being bul lied, Nash said. We also educated the students on community ser vice work. We explained that service work is a form of volunteer work intended to help people. We wanted the students to know how to work in the community to help every one, she said. Our service project was a great success, but we could have never made it without the sponsorship of the busi nesses in the community. We could never say thank you enough to the com munity, Nash added. What a gracious outpouring of support we received in our need for sponsorship for our Stop Bullying T-shirts.

State education officials are stressing that a statewide evaluation system for teach ers and principals is still years away. Roughly 400 educators filled a Columbia middle school Monday for the last in a series of public meet ings on Superintendent Mick Zais proposal. Plans are being preliminarily test ed in 22 schools this year. Evaluating educators based on performance is a required part of the states exemption from the all-or-nothing provisions of the federal No Child Left Behind law. Expert: Texas test isnt too hard Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas A state expert denied Texas made its latest standard ized test too difficult, say ing Monday that such exams have always gotten harder but students tend to improve their scores over time. Texas Education Agency director of student assess ment Gloria Zyskowski testified at the sweeping school finance trial before state District Judge John Dietz. She was shown sample questions from Texas standardized tests given to ninth-graders in 1982. To make the point about how much more dif ficult such exams have become through the years, Zyskowski said such ques tions werent likely to even appear on todays tests for third-graders. Texas has been sued by more than 600 school dis tricts responsible for edu cating three-quarters of the states more than 5 million students. They claim that the way schools are funded is so inadequate and unfair that it violates state consti tutional guarantees. The state Legislature voted in 2011 to reduce funding to public schools by $5.4 billion even though enrollment is growing by 80,000 students annually.
