By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Columbia County grand jury ruled Monday that a Lake City Police officer’s shooting of an armed man during a con-frontation at the Windsong Apartment Complex in August was justified. Jeramey Sweeny, 30, died in the con-frontation with Lake City Police Officer Brian Bruenger. Sweeny was the vic-tim in a fight with one his roommates before authorities arrived and happened to fit the physical description of the assailant. However, Sweeny was carrying a gun when he was met by authorities and killed in a confrontation when he pointed the gun a law enforcement officers. According to information provided by the Lake City Police Department in August, officers responded to a 911 dis-tress call at 2:27 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 21 at 2720 SW Windsong Circle. Apartment 203 in Building 5 was Sweeny’s resi-dence, according to police. It was unclear the nature of the 911 call beyond there being some type of disturbance. Officers Brian Bruenger, Garrett Register and Sgt. Larry Shallar responded to the call. As Bruenger, Register and Shallar approached the door, Sweeny reportedly exited the apartment with a handgun and pointed it at the officers. By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comSuperintendent Terry Huddleston said Monday that district officials will be touring county schools this week and talking with prin-cipals about the crisis response plan as well as ways to improve security. On Saturday Huddleston said he had ordered a renewed emphasis on the crisis response plan but stopped short of calling for specific changes. Monday he noted areas that may require improvement or alteration, including the location of an entrance gate at Melrose Park Elementary that allows visitors to pass near classrooms and out of sight of school personnel. Huddleston said federal funding may also become available for increased school security in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that left 20 chil-dren and six adults dead Friday. As of now, only secondary schools in Columbia County have a permanent school resource officer on campus. “We would certainly like to enhance that at the elementary level...,” Huddleston said. “We will take every advantage of (federal grant money).” Sheriff Mark Hunter said Monday that he was “in total agreement” with a plan that would place a deputy in every county school. Under the current system, deputies make daily rounds at the elementary schools and respond there when needed, said Ed Seifert, public infor-mation officer for the sheriff’s office. Chief Argatha Gilmore of the Lake City Police Department said some school resource officers were previously supplied by LCPD, and said she welcomed the possibility of providing that service again.

Review ordered in wake of shootingJitters for some, but school day goes smoothly By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comThe first day back to school since the mass-shooting in Newtown, Conn., left some parents nervous, but most said they were confident that Columbia County provides a safe place for their children. Supt. Terry Huddleston said Monday there were no reports of significant absences and that every-thing ran smoothly. “I understand there’s some uneasiness, but we had a great day,” he said. Cherie Hill, principal at Westside Elementary, said “it was a real smooth day.” “We are continuing to look at our emergency procedures and ways to keep our children safe,” Hill said. “That’s our number one priority.” Michelle Strand, mother to a second-grade daughter and a pre-kin-dergarden son at Westside, said she could not imagine what the parents in Connecticut are experiencing, especially this close to Christmas.

Deputies were dispatched to the Stop-n-Go (Exxon), 3974 SW State Road 47, around 8:40 a.m. to investigate reports of an armed robbery. According to Columbia County sheriff’s reports, a man entered the store armed with a handgun and demanded money from the store clerk. After receiving an undetermined amount of money, the suspect fled the scene on foot. Reports did not indicate whether anyone was injured during the robbery. The suspect is described as a black man approxi-mately 6 feet tall, weighing around 165 175 pounds. The suspect was wearing a light gray hooded sweat-shirt, light gray sweat pants, black sneakers and a white T-shirt. The suspect also had a black stocking cap on under the hood of ROBBER continued on 3A Sweeny Officercleared in fatalshooting Armed man was killed in encounter at apartment complex.OFFICER continued on 3A Stormwatersystem willget 2nd lookBy DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comThe Lake City Utility Advisory Committee on Monday discussed how to implement a stormwater management utility system -including the creation of a new service fee. In August 2008, the city council passed an ordinance establishing a city stormwater management utility system. The system hasn’t been imple-mented because of public opposition of the stormwater utility service fee. Opposition came mostly from local busi-ness owners in 2008. The proposed fee would be $5 a month for all residential property owners. Owners of commercial property would have to have an assessment of their property to determine their fee. The service fee would use equivalent residen-tial units determined by the average “impervious area” of a single family residence. Impervious area is the land that doesn’t allow for natu-ral drainage of stormwaters. Buildings and parking lots are CITY continued on 3A

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Fort White High’s basketball team made short work of visiting Columbia High with a 74-53 victory on Monday. The Indians stayed unbeaten at 8-0, while the Tigers dropped to 4-3. Columbia played without its top scorer, Morris Marshall, who rolled an ankle at school on Monday, but coach Horace Jefferson said it would not have made a difference. “We missed his points, but that did not cost us the game,” Jefferson said. “I thought we had enough firepower, but Fort White just outplayed us. They got every loose ball and we made poor decisions. We didn’t compete like we should have.” Fort White played without starter Trey Phillips, who is away at an all-star football camp. Both teams were tight early — the first points came at 5:44 of the first quarter. Trailing 6-4, Fort White went on a 10-0 run and that set the tone. The Indians led 21-11 at the end of the quarter. Columbia cut the lead to six in the second quar-ter, but Fort White pushed it back to 11 at halftime, 33-22. The officials let the teams play and that played into the hands of the Indians. Fort White was scrappier on defense and under the basket, and faster down the court on fast breaks. When the treys starting falling for Fort White in the third quarter — Jalen Wyche alone had three — there was no way Columbia was going to catch up. “They are tired in the locker room,” coach Isiah Phillips said. “They left it all on the floor. We tell them to play hard and play team ball and they gave a good showing. Everybody played and that is what we are all about. We want to put peo-ple in and not miss a beat. We’re getting there. The main thing, I was proud of the effort.” Melton Sanders led all scorers with 25 points, including seven in the first period when Fort White took command. He also had 10 points in the fourth quarter. Wyche finished with 23 points, 11 in his red-hot third quarter. Michael Mulberry scored 11 points, most of them in the paint as he kept attack-ing the basket. Chris Cottrell and Joe Powers scored six points apiece. Kaleel Jackson had a basket and Dre Brown hit a free throw. DaKarry Rossin led Columbia with 16 points and Tr Simmons scored 15. Other CHS scorers were: Akeem Williams, 7, Andrew Moemeka, 6, Wayne Broom, 4, Dillan Hall, 2, Kevin Louder, 2, and Kelvin Jonas, 1. Fort White is off until after Christmas. Columbia has Hamilton County com-ing to town for a boys/girls quad-match on Saturday.From staff reportsColumbia High’s wrestling team competed in the Bradford Duals tournament on Saturday.

But after he had consid ered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:20-21 CORRECTION School resource officers are permanently stationed only at secondary schools in Columbia County. Due to inaccurate information supplied to the Lake City Reporter, a story in Sundays paper indicated otherwise. PEOPLE IN THE NEWS Celebrity Birthdays Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark is 85. Actor-producer Roger Smith is 80. Rock singer-musician Keith Richards is 69. Writer-director Alan Rudolph is 69. Movie producer-director Steven Spielberg is 66. AROUND FLORIDA Scott names prison secretary TALLAHASSEE Floridas new prison chief on Monday inherited a deficit of about $60 million and a legal dispute over privatizing inmate health care that he says could put his agency much deeper in debt. Michael D. Crews spoke about the chal lenges hes facing as secretary of corrections a couple hours after Gov. Rick Scott announced his appointment to succeed Ken Tucker, who retired. Crews had been deputy secretary since last year. I have total confidence in the people that I have the opportunity to work with here that we are ultimately going to get to where we want to be as an agency, Crews told reporters. He began his 26-year career in corrections and law enforcement as a pro bation and parole officer. Later, he worked as a cor rectional officer and then had various jobs in the Florida Department of Law Enforcement including director of the agencys professionalism program and chief of its bureau of standards. Lifeline phone enrollment up TALLAHASSEE Enrollment is up in the states Lifeline Assistance and Link-up Florida pro gram that offers discount ed telephone service to low-income residents. The Public Service Commission issued an annual report on Monday showing the program grew by 9.7 percent during the budget year that ended June 30. That brought participa tion to slightly more than a million Floridians. Officials said the rea sons for the growth vary but include the states sluggish economy. The program offers a discount of at least $12.75 per month for custom ers who participate in various public assistance programs, but thats set to shrink to $9.25 for AT&T customers on Jan. 1. AT&T so far is the only one of the 29 participating telephone companies that has announced plans to reduce its discount next year. Woman charged in mothers death APALACHICOLA Authorities have charged a Florida Panhandle woman in the death of her mother, whose body was found on an isolated beach. The Franklin County Sheriffs Office arrested Sandra Anne LoudermilkConkel on Saturday on a charge of first-degree mur der. She was being held Monday without bond. Loudermilk-Conkels mother was found dead Wednesday on a beach about 10 miles west of Apalachicola. The cause of death has not been released. Autopsy results are pending. Man fatally shot by deputies CLEARWATER Authorities say sheriffs deputies have shot and killed a Tampa Bay-area man who confronted them with a shotgun. According to the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Danny Merediths wife notified authorities after finding a threatening note Sunday afternoon on the front door of the couples Clearwater home. The couple had been arguing earlier in the day. According to the sheriffs office, the note said anyone coming to the home would be shot and killed. Deputies went to the house to check on Meredith. According to the sheriffs office, Meredith was naked when he opened the door but confronted the deputies with a shotgun, pointing the weapon at them. Two deputies then shot and killed Meredith. The sheriffs office says both deputies will be placed on routine adminis trative leave. Dead whale floats ashore on beach DEERFIELD BEACH City officials were planning to have a 40foot sperm whale carcass towed out to sea, rather than allow scientists to perform a necropsy. Deerfield Beach Mayor Peggy Noland said Monday that the stench would be incredible if the animal was cut open on the beach. She said the city would pay for a tugboat to remove the animal. Blair Mase, with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said she understands the citys position, but learning the animals cause of death would provide invaluable information for conserva tion. Mase said NOAA scientists would be able sample the remains before they are hauled to sea and later when they are off shore. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported that authorities are investigat ing reports that swimmers may have harassed the dying whale on Sunday. Stones wrap up 50th anniversary tour NEW YORK O nly at a Rolling Stones concert could appear ances by Bruce Springsteen and Lady Gaga seem almost like afterthoughts. Those superstars and other top acts including the Black Keys and John Mayer jammed with the Stones on Saturday night, winding down a series of concerts celebrating the 50th year of rocks most enduring band (the occasion was also marked by a pay-per-view special). The Boss rocked out with the band on out Tumbling Dice; Gaga matched Mick Jagger shimmy-forshimmy on Gimme Shelter; the Black Keys joined on Who Do You Love, and John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr. showed their consider able guitar chops alongside Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood on Goin Down. But the Stones would not be upstaged. While the sold-out crowd roared with each special guest, it was the aging but dynamic foursome that generated the most excitement of the night, as they put new energy into their decades-old catalog of hits, including Its Only Rock N Roll (But I Like It), Start Me Up, Brown Sugar, Sympathy for the Devil and more. The band took a moment to acknowledge the shooting deaths of 20 children and six adults at an elementary school Friday in Newtown, Conn. We just wanted to send our love and condolences to all the people who lost loved ones in the tragedy in Connecticut, Jagger early on in the concert as the audience applauded. Jagger noted the entire world was feeling the pain of the stunned nation. But it was the only somber moment in an a frenetic show that showed why the Stones are consid ered by many to be the greatest rock band, and belied the much-discussed advanced age of the groups lineup (their ages range between 65 and 71). Lopez plays Santa for favorite charities NEW YORK Jennifer Lopez says she doesnt look forward to getting gifts at Christmas she looks forward to giving them. I love going and shopping for Christmas presents for everybody and making gifts for people and seeing their faces light up and surprising them; thats where I get my joy, the entertainer said last week. Its also why Lopez launched her J. Los Christmas Gift drive, asking fans to donate to her three favorite charities (the Boys & Girls Club, the Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Red Cross). In exchange, shell give someone two tickets to the last show of her Dance Again world tour in Puerto Rico on Saturday; shell also pay air fare and hotel costs.

She said she was a past victim of severe domestic violence, and that she kept her child out of school Monday. She said her son told her that the teachers dont lock the doors to the classroom, and that also concerned her. I pray every day while driving my son to school for God to protect him and keep him safe, Markham wrote in an email to Huddleston. ... I need reassurance that security in these schools is being improved. She said after talking with Huddleston she feels better. Mr. Huddleston was awesome this morning..., she said. I feel confident with what Mr. Huddleston told me. They will be locking those doors. Huddleston said he was aware of the problem with the gate at Melrose Park, and that we are looking at all possible solutions to move that gate. Markham said her son would be back in school today. She said she knows that improved security at schools comes with a cost. I know its going to take lots of money, but how much money is a childs life worth, she said. It was kind of hard. I thought about (keeping them home) but theyre in good hands, Stand said. I was reluctant to let go. I made sure to extra kiss them and told my daughter to look around and all that. Mike Rossborough, father to a secondgrade daughter, said hes confident with the safety procedures in place at Westside. His daughter usually rides the bus, but today she was a car rider. He said for him to pick her up from school he had to write a note in the office this morning. I felt safe about letting them come here, he said. Florence Justice, mother to a fifth-grade son at Westside, said there was no decision to be made about whether to keep her son out of school. We are going about our day as usual, Justice said. You can take every precau tion, but when you are dealing with insane motives you cant predict that. Rashwan Patel, father to a four-year-old in Pre-K, said hes concerned with how easy it is to buy guns in America, but that Columbia County is relatively safe. He said he never thought about keeping his son home today. Its a small town and a safe place, Patel said. I didnt have much concern, but you never know. Brian Watson has four children at Westside, and said he likes the school. Watson has a fifth grader, two second grad ers and a first grader. We werent reluctant, he said. But a little nervous. Judy Ripple, grandmother to a fourthgrader and a second-grader at Westside, said she was more worried about them missing school and falling behind then some unforeseen tragedy occuring at the school. Theyre safe here. If its going to hap pen, its going to happen, Ripple said. They need to go to school and not miss. the sweatshirt. On Saturday, Dec. 8, a masked gunman described by witnesses as having a similar build robbed the Stop-n-Go Food Store near Subway on State Road 47 just west of Interstate 75. That gunman entered the store, hit a customer in the face and pushed him aside before demanding cash and fleeing from the store. Authorities have not linked the crimes, but are looking closely at both. We are looking at both cases closely to see if there are similarities, said Columbia County Sheriffs Office public information officer, Sgt. Ed Seifert. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Columbia County Sheriffs Office at 758-7015. Callers may also call Crime Stoppers of Columbia County at 754-7099. Callers to Crime Stoppers will always remain anony mous and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000. Bruenger alerted the other two offi cers to Sweeny having a handgun and he drew his service weapon and fired at Sweeny, killing him at the scene. On Aug. 21, Sweeny, who resided with two roommates, one male and the other female, had been in an altercation with the male roommate. After the altercation, the roommates brother came to the apartment where a second altercation between him and Sweeny took place. The female roommate called 911, describing the assailant as a white man with no shirt wearing jeans. Officers responded while the 911 caller was still on the line and after approaching her the officer was confronted by Sweeny, who fit the description given of the aggressor in the earlier altercation. Sweeny had armed himself with a handgun and he approached the offi cer in a threatening manner. In fear for his life, believing this to be the assail ant reported to the 911 dispatcher, the officer responded as he had been trained and Sweeny was fatally shot, according to a press release from the state attorneys office. The grand jury found that the offi cer was responding to a report of a violent crime, that Sweeny met the 911 callers description of the assail ant, that Sweeny had armed himself with a handgun and his actions led to his fatal shooting. The grand jury found that the actions of the officer were reason able under the circumstances and in response to what he reasonably perceived to be a deadly threat on his life. The grand jury also considered the action of the roommates brother which led to the 911 call and returned an indictment charging Trey Allen Witt with battery. This is a terrible tragedy for all concerned, said Skip Jarvis, Third Circuit State Attorney in a prepared statement. No officer ever wishes to take a life, however we cannot ask then to do what is necessary to keep our community safe unless they have the ability to protect their own wellbeing. The events leading to this shooting after the officers arrival took place so quickly that he had little time to react other than how his training had taught him. He acted appropriately in consideration of what he believed the facts to be. Had Sweeny not armed himself and then presented himself before the officer in a manner seen to be threat ening, he would still be alive. From staff reports A Lake City man, riding as a pas senger in a car reportedly traveling through town with one working head light, was arrested and faces felony drug-related charges after authori ties found 94 grams of marijuana, digi tal scales and more than $1,100 in cash, reports said. Emanuel M. Rentz, 24, 515 SW Diamond Court, was charged with possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, possession with intent to sell and possession of narcot ics equipment in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $11,000 bond. According to Lake City Police Department reports, around 9:59 p.m. Friday, Officer Ivan Useche conducted a traffic stop at Southwest Arlington Boulevard on a white Pontiac, which reportedly had only one operable headlight. During the stop, Useche reported he could smell a strong odor of mari juana coming from the vehicle. A 16-year-old girl was a passenger in the cars front seat while Emanuel M. Rentz, 24, was in the back seat along with his 2-year-old child with no car seat, the report said. After issuing two traffic citations to the driver, Josiah D. Brown, 20, for improper or unsafe equipment and no child safety restraint, offi cers were given consent to search the vehicle by Brown, in addition to having probable cause to search the driver and all occupants, according to the report. As Officer Kevin Johns was get ting the two passengers to exit the vehicle, he reportedly also smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle and saw a small amount of marijuana shake (seeds and stems) on Rentz clothing. Prior to the search, Brown admitted that two roaches were in the ash tray that were smoked inside the vehicle earlier in the day. Johns asked the 16-year-old girl in the front seat to exit the vehicle. She complied and reportedly freely admitted to Johns that she had a small amount (1.8 grams) of mari juana in her shirt pocket. She added she was turning 17 the next day and it was for her own use. Rentz was searched by Useche who discovered $1,120 cash in his shorts pocket. The search of the vehicle revealed a small compart ment from the backseat to the truck area, where Rentz had placed the baby bag after Useche had gotten behind them. A search of the diaper bag yielded four large plastic bags with a total of 95 grams of marijuana in them and a digital scale. Reports said after Rentz was read his Miranda rights, he admitted the baby bag containing the digital scale and marijuana was his, adding he was attempting to make some money to help support his child. Brown, the vehicles driver, was cited and released on-scene. Charges were filed on the 16-yearold girl and she was also released on scene. Rentz was arrested for possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, possession with intent to sell and possession of narcotics equipment. The narcotics, equipment and cash were seized as evidence. examples of impervious areas. The service fee would be based on number of square feet of impervious area. The typical home in Columbia County has 2,087 square feet of impervious area and has been proposed as the equivalent residential unit. Commercial property that has its own stormwater sys tem would be eligible for up to a 100 percent discount. The property owner would still have to pay the base fee of $5. The utility advisory committee asked staff to complete an assessment for all commercial property in Lake City to determine the cost of the system on local businesses. Before any decision is made there will be a public hearing, City Manager Wendell Johnson said. The earliest those discussions could take place would be March 2013.

By BARRY WILNER Associated Press S o you think you know the NFL? Perhaps you can predict the future, tame the weather and forecast winning lottery numbers, too. Those claiming to know what will happen in pro football need only look at what went on this wild weekend, which featured a half-dozen super matchups that didnt turn out quite so super. Nothing could be juicier than the defending champion New York Giants at Atlanta. Oops: Falcons 34, Giants 0. OK, then Denver at Baltimore. Delicious. Sorry: Broncos 34, Ravens 17. Houston, coming off an embarrassing Monday night rout at New England, against Indianapolis for AFC South supremacy. Pffft: Texans 29-17 to clinch the division. For something even more absurd than the lack of competitiveness in those games, try this one: San Francisco 31, New England 3 in the third quarter. And this: Patriots 31, 49ers 31 with 6:43 left in the fourth quarter. Just when the Patriots were on their way to matching the greatest regular-season comeback win in NFL history, the Niners turned around and won 41-34. Its a little bit crazy, a little bit surreal, said 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who threw for a career-best four touchdowns in his fifth start since replacing Alex Smith. A little bit? Thats the NFL this season. If anyone thinks the weirdness has ended with two weeks remaining, well, dont count on it. The seasons not over, Tom Brady said after his team that doesnt lose at home in December (20 straight wins heading into the San Francisco game) or in the second half of the schedule (21 straight victories anywhere) lost. And committed four turnovers, nearly half the 10 it had given away beforehand. Theres still a lot of football to play. Plenty of meaningful football. About the only thing predictable is that there will be lots of surprises in those remaining games, too. Heres what everyone can look forward to. NFC Atlanta (12-2 in the South) and Green Bay (10-4 in the North ) are division winners, with the Falcons in position to get home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. San Francisco (10-3-1) will earn the West with a victory at Seattle (9-5) next Sunday. But the Seahawks are 6-0 at home, have a dynamic defense to match the 49ers unit, and are oozing with confidence thanks to a three-game winning streak and five vic tories in the last six outings. The league moved that game to the prime-time telecast and NBC must be salivating after the Seahawks scored 50 points for the second straight week. Whats important is that you continue to execute really well regardless of the circumstances and who youre playing, coach Pete Carroll said. The East is in a threeteam deadlock: New York, Washington and Dallas, all at 8-6. If either the Redskins or Cowboys win out, theyll take the division. They meet at Washington in the season finale. Meanwhile, after three straight road losses, the Giants need help to repeat in the division. Very alive for the wild card are all three East teams, the runner-up in the West, plus Minnesota and Chicago, also 8-6. But the Bears are skidding and banged-up. With the way Adrian Peterson is playing, counting them out would be foolhardy. AFC Houston (12-2), despite that flop at Foxborough, is in good shape to remain at home throughout; one more victory earns the South champion that advantage. However, both remaining opponents, Minnesota and Indy, are chasing wild-card slots. Denver (11-3) has won nine in a row and is a far superior team to the one that lost earlier this season to the Texans and Patriots. Peyton Manning has gotten more in tune with his teammates as the season has progressed, and the defense is fierce. Plus, the West-winning Broncos finish with home games against weaklings Cleveland and Kansas City. New Englands strange loss to the 49ers puts it in a precarious position for a club that certainly looked like the leagues best before Sunday. If it beats Jacksonville and Miami, it will finish 12-4, but that might get only the third seed and no bye for the East champ. It also could mean a trip to the Mile High City in the divisional round. The North has three teams struggling to reach the finish line. Baltimore (9-5) has lost three in a row, yet secured a playoff berth Sunday. It leads Cincinnati by one game and finishes with the Bengals after meeting the Giants next weekend. Cincinnati and the Steelers (7-7) face off next week at Pittsburgh. A loss pretty much eliminated the Steelers. The Colts (9-5) have the best shot at a wild card and a win at Kansas City next week should do it. Not that were predicting any such thing these days.

P resident Barack Obama has lied so often about “the 1 percent,” that even House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and some wobbly Republicans have swallowed Obama’s toxic fiction that “fair-ness” requires the rich to surrender more of their money to Washington -albeit through narrower deductions rather than higher tax rates. Washington’s problem is not a paucity of rev-enues but a nicotine-like addiction to blowing other people’s money. Thus, Republicans should reject tax hikes on anyone, especially to put America’s most successful citizens in their place. Obama has had America’s top earners in his crosshairs for years: Q “I do think at a certain point, you’ve made enough money,” Obama said in April 2010. Q “If asking a millionaire to pay the same tax rate as a plumber makes me a class warrior, a warrior for the working class,” Obama said in September 2011, “I will wear that charge as a badge of honor.” Q “Some billionaires have a tax rate as low as 1 percent -1 percent,” Obama announced in December 2011. “That is the height of unfairness.” For this statement, The Washington Post awarded Obama three Pinocchios and added, “An adminis-tration official conceded the White House had no actual data to back up the president’s assertion.” While Obama loudly excoriates the wealthy, the Tax Foundation quietly analyzed the latest IRS data. The facts pulverize Obama’s lies. First, the top 1 percent does pay its “fair share” of taxes. The top 1 percent of tax filers -Americans with adjusted gross incomes of at least $369,691 -earned 18.9 percent of national income and paid 37.4 per-cent of all income taxes. The top 10 percent made at least $116, 623 each. They earned 45.2 percent of national income and paid 70.6 percent of all income taxes. If these taxpayers are not paying their fair share, Obama should specify a “fair” percentage. Meanwhile, the bottom 50 percent of taxpayers made less than $34,338 each. This group earned 11.7 percent of national income, but paid just 2.4 percent of all income taxes. The reviled 1 per-cent coughed up 16 times this amount. Also, the entire bottom half of tax filers paid a 2.4 percent average tax rate, while the top 1 percent paid 23.4 percent -nearly 10 times more. So much for the vicious lie that the poor and mid-dle class bear America’s tax burden while the rich laugh all the way to the Cayman Islands. Second, many 1 percenters launch and expand companies, invest their earnings, purchase goods and services and conduct economic activity that cre-ates and sustains the jobs and careers of less wealthy Americans. According to Bloomberg News: 53 percent of busi-ness income reported on individual income tax returns is earned by taxpayers who would be affected by Obama’s proposal” to boost taxes on those whom Obama denounces as “million-aires and billionaires.” Of course, Obamathematics defines “millionaires and billionaires” as married couples who earn at least $250,000 and individu-als who make more than $200,000. Third, the top 1 percent handsomely finance chari-ties. The 2012 Bank of America Study of High Net Worth Philanthropy in conjunction with the University of Indiana’s Center on Philanthropy surveyed 701 Americans with an average net worth of $10.7 million. In 2011, 95 percent of these “plutocrats” gave to charity. Among the gen-eral population, 65 percent made charitable donations. These wealthy individuals last year donated $52,770, on average, or 8.7 percent of income. Americans in the 1 percent deserve a pat on the back, not the back of Obama’s hand.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com W e learned at last night’s city council meeting that Columbia County’s own Gentle Carousel miniature therapy horses may soon be headed to Newtown, Conn., to visit with townspeople, including survivors of the school shooting there. That’s if funding can be found to cover the costs of the trip and other expenses. We feel certain these animals would bring comfort to everyone they came in contact with there, as they have on so many occasions right here at home. The folks in Newtown can certainly use some comfort about now. Toward that end, the city agreed to donate $500 to help defray expenses. We can’t think of money better spent. Money well spent OUR OPINION On this date:In 1787, New Jersey became the third state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. In 1865, the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, abolishing slavery, was declared in effect by Secretary of State William H. Seward. In 1892, Tchaikovsky’s ballet “The Nutcracker” publicly premiered in St. Petersburg, Russia. In 1912, the Piltdown Man made its public debut as fossil collector Charles Dawson reported to the Geological Society of London his discovery of suppos-edly fragmented early human remains at a gravel pit in Piltdown. (More than four decades later, the Piltdown Man was exposed as a hoax.) In 1915, President Woodrow Wilson, widowed the year before, married Edith Bolling Galt at her Washington home. In 1940, Adolf Hitler ordered secret preparations for Nazi Germany to invade the Soviet Union. (Operation Barbarossa was launched in June 1941.) In 1944, in a pair of rulings, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the wartime relocation of Japanese-Americans, but also said undeniably loyal Americans of Japanese ancestry could not continue to be detained. In 1958, the world’s first communications satellite, SCORE (Signal Communication by Orbiting Relay Equipment), nicknamed “Chatterbox,” was launched by the United States aboard an Atlas rocket. In 1962, “Mister Magoo’s Christmas Carol,” an animated musical adaptation of the Charles Dickens story, first aired on NBC-TV. In 1971, the Rev. Jesse Jackson announced in Chicago the founding of Operation PUSH (People United to Save Humanity). In 1972, the United States began heavy bombing of North Vietnamese targets during the Vietnam War. (The bombardment ended 11 days later.) In 1980, former Soviet Premier Alexei N. Kosygin died at age 76. HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY Q Associated Press Hooray for America’s 1 percentProtect Medicare’s Part D T he possibility of going over the “fiscal cliff” means different things to different groups. For Medicare recipients, any reduction in the Part D program, which provides affordable prescription drugs, is a frightening prospect. And it’s just one more reason that President Barack Obama and Congress need to find a solution that doesn’t involve arbi-trary across-the-board cuts under sequestration. The uncertainty sure makes me pay attention. Like other Medicare recipients, I recently selected my Part D plan for 2013. Call me a satis-fied customer. And while cuts under sequestration could limit my means to buy affordable medi-cines, I will not be hurt as severely as many other seniors and disabled vet-erans. Fortunately, I am still able to earn income by writing and teaching part time. I also will not be hurt by the hike in the Medicare age eligibility on the table. But not everyone is so fortunate, particularly in Florida, a state with a large elderly population. I spoke with 82-year-old Austin R. Curry, execu-tive director of Elder Care Advocacy of Florida, about the fate of Medicare and Medicaid if intransigence wins in Washington. For 30 years, Curry has been involved in senior affairs and was part of the launching of Part D in 2003. He understands that as the nation attempts to solve its many fiscal chal-lenges, Medicare needs to evolve. “But any changes must be implemented in a meticulous manner,” he said. “Arbitrary changes would be detrimental to the individuals who depend on Part D. “It benefits the people and saves lives and should be recognized as a best practice. I have seen firsthand in Florida how it has helped seniors and persons with disabilities. Part D is working for those who would not be able to afford medications without it. We are facing unprecedented financial difficulties, but with the right changes, the pro-gram will remain a suc-cess and continue to help millions of seniors for years to come.” As Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, or PhRMA, a leading trade group, noted in a report that compiled extensive academic research on Medicare Part D: Q Overall cost is 43 percent, or $435 billion, below initial projections. Q Satisfaction rate among beneficiaries is 88 percent. Q Seniors save money through monthly premi-ums as low as $14. Q Low-income beneficiaries have access to medicines at little or no cost. Q t has lowered Medicare spending by helping patients avoid costly hospitalizations and other health care services. Florida alone has 3,784,225 residents cov-ered by Medicare and 3,247,677 with coverage from Medicaid, the latter including 1,735,771 chil-dren and 444,500 seniors, according to AFL-CIO research. And Florida has thousands of rural seniors who have limited access to medical facilities as a result of long distances and scheduling problems. Curry, an Air Force veteran of the Korean con-flict, said as lawmakers and the president negoti-ate, they need to remem-ber that the Part D pre-scription drug program is essential, providing life-saving medications to those often in dire need. “Even a 10 percent reduction in Part D will result in the deaths of many, as they are unable to afford the differ-ence since many have hundreds of dollars a month in critical medica-tions,” Curry said. “Most Medicare enrollees can-not even afford an extra $50 or $100 in additional monthly expense.” Although legislators have legitimate con-cerns over an exploding federal budget deficit, reducing debt and spur-ring economic growth, they should keep in mind that our so-called entitle-ments are not equally effective. Medicare Part D is a worthy program, delivering exceptional value at a lower cost by using competitive pre-scription drug bidding. It is a lifeline that serves mostly senior citizens on fixed incomes. It should be protected from cuts that would merely shift problems to other federal and state programs.

DEAR ABBY: I am 20 and have been with my boyfriend, “Griffin,” for five years. He recently gave me a beautiful prom-ise ring. I would like to spend the rest of my life with him, but I think I have a problem. I am going to become an adoption professional, and I plan on adopting one day. Griffin knows I’m pursuing this career and that I want to adopt, but I don’t think he understands how seri-ous I am about it. We don’t plan on being married until after college, when we’ll both be 25. How do I let him know I’m serious about this? I don’t want to wait five more years and find he’s not on the same page and that I wasted my time. When I try to discuss it, Griffin says we’re “too young to think about it.” What do I say to that? -MAPPING OUT MY FUTURE IN L.A. DEAR MAPPING: It appears you are more mature than your boy-friend. Because you are determined to eventually adopt a child, I agree that it’s important for you to know whether Griffin has any negative feelings about adoption because some people are unable to accept a child who is not their own. The next time he says you’re too young to think about such things, explain that. There is a vast difference between a “promise ring” and a little gold band. Because Griffin presented you with a promise ring is no guarantee that in five years the two of you will make it to the altar together. You may need to be with someone who, like you, is more geared to mapping out a future and wants to settle down. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My daughter, “Annie,” is a single mother, holds a full-time job and trains for triathlons. Her son, “Cooper,” is 3. Annie has him enrolled in day care from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. every day while she’s at work. Afterward, she picks up Cooper from day care and checks him into the gym’s child care service while she works out. I have offered to pick my grandson up from day care once a week and keep him until Annie finishes her workout. My other daughter has offered to pick him up twice a week so he can play with his cousin at her house. Annie has become defensive. She says we’re offering because we think she’s neglecting him. Actually, I DO think so. It breaks my heart that my grandson spends 12 hours a day in day care. Do you agree with me? What should I do? -WORRIED GRANNY IN THE SOUTHWEST DEAR WORRIED GRANNY: Annie may be defensive because she feels some guilt, or because you need to become a better actress and transmit less disap-proval. Apologize to her if that will smooth things over. Explain that you would like Cooper to spend time with you because you love him and want him to develop warm childhood memories of his grandmother. Tell Annie that her sister wants him to spend time with his cousin so they will have a closer bond when they’re older. Then cross your fin-gers and hope she’ll accept the offers. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Common sense will lead to victory. Whether you are trying to close a deal or revive an old friendship, your kind words and positive sug-gestions will help you cut through any negativity or deception. Love is in the stars. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Picking up items you’ll use throughout the festive season along with making a donation or helping out a friend will bring you good vibes and plenty of joy. Knowing what you want will help you make a wise choice regarding a part-nership. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Not everything will be as it appears. Take a step back and observe what everyone else is doing. You will be easily fooled by someone’s generosity and compliments. Ask ques-tions and find out exactly what’s expected of you in return. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your emotions will take you down an unusual path that will allow you to clearly see your options. Making a good choice based on your findings will spare you from an impulsive and costly move. Avoid overindulgent, escapist people. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get into the spirit of the season. Attending a party with colleagues will broad-en your outlook regarding how you can expand a service or skill you have to offer. Romance is high-lighted, but you shouldn’t feel obligated to overspend to win someone’s love. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take a serious attitude when dealing with partner-ships and responsibilities needing your help. Don’t feel the need to overspend in order to avoid disap-pointment. Keep your life simple and ease stress by taking part in something physical. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Shopping, traveling and taking care of some of the people who depend on your help will ease your mind so that you can look forward to festive events and changes you want to make before the year comes to a close. Focus on love. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t be fooled by someone playing with your emotions. Take a closer look at what’s being prom-ised before you set your sights on something that may not come through. Travel plans may have to be revised. Follow your intuition. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t promise what you cannot deliver. It’s important to stick to the truth and to use your imagination and creative ability to please someone you love. A chance to make a difference to some-one facing restrictions will be rewarded. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Facing your past and looking at your future will help you realize that the present is what’s important and the history you have with friends, fam-ily or your lover are worth far more than any gift you can give. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Bring joy to oth-ers through your actions. A small gesture or show-ing gratitude will go a long way. Do what’s best for you and you will make those around you happy as well. Enjoy what you have and share with those in need. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Realize what you can and what you cannot do. Trying to provide the impossible will be fruitless. Focus on the little things: positive thought, plenty of love and spending time with people in your life who count most. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Congratulations to everyone for all their hard work! Everyone did a great job! Five Points Elementary All about magnets The fift-grade students of Five Points Elementary had MagLab expert Carlos Villa visit on Dec.4 to present a lesson on how to build an electromagnet with items commonly found in and around the house. Mr. Villa gave a brief les son on what magnets do. He used magnets to dem onstrate how they attract and repel and explained that the region where the magnetic force created is the strongest is at the north and south poles. He explained that magnetism is the force of attraction and repulsion of the mag nets. Students were given the opportunity to explore and discover through hands-on experiences the properties of magnets and magne tism. Students were given the items and the basic directions for creating an electromagnet that is strong enough to pick up paper clips. They were then encouraged to modify their magnets and note the effects that each change brings to the strength of the magnet.
