By ALAN FRAM andDAVID ESPOAssociated PressWASHINGTON — Past its own New Year’s deadline, a weary Congress sent President Barack Obama legislation to avoid a national “fiscal cliff” of middle class tax increases and spending cuts late Tuesday night in the culmination of a struggle that strained America’s divided government to the limit. The bill’s passage on a 257167 vote in the House sealed a hard-won political triumph for the president less than two months after he secured re-election while calling for higher taxes on the wealthy. In addition to neutralizing middle class tax increases and spending cuts taking effect with the new year, the legislation will raise tax rates on incomes over $400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for couples. That was higher than the thresholds of $200,000 and $250,000 that Obama campaigned for. But remarkably, in a party that swore off tax increases two decades ago, dozens of Republicans sup-ported the bill at both ends of the Capitol. The Senate approved the measure on a vote of 89-8 less than 24 hours earlier, and in the interim, rebellious House conservatives demanded a vote to add significant spending cuts to the measure. But in the end they retreated. Supporters of the bill in both parties expressed regret that it was narrowly drawn, and fell far short of a sweeping plan that combined tax changes and spending cuts to reduce federal deficits. That proved to be a step too far in the two months since Obama called congressional leaders to the White House for a postelection stab at compro-mise. Majority Republicans did their best to minimize the bill’s tax increases, just as they aban-doned their demand from ear-lier in the day to add spending cuts to the package.

ASSOCIATED PRESSOlga Lovchu, 30, of Chicago, center, points and cheers in Times Square in anticipation of midnight on New Years Eve on Tuesday in New York. World looks to 2013 after wide range of woesBy JENNIFER PELTZ andVERENA DOBNIKAssociated PressNEW YORK — As the world rang in 2013 with spectacular fireworks displays and showers of confetti, the specter of eco-nomic uncertainty and searing violence dimmed some festivi-ties and weighed on the minds of revelers hoping for a better year. “With all the sadness in the country, we’re looking for some good changes in 2013,” Laura Concannon, of Hingham, Mass., said as she, her hus-band, Kevin, and his parents joined hundreds of thousands of people who celebrated the new year in Times Square on Monday. Matias Dellanno, 37, of Buenos Aires, Argentina, stood in the middle of the square with his wife and 3-year-old son. His eyes caught the multicolored lighting illuminating the square just before midnight. “I feel a completely new hope for 2013,” he said. “It can’t be any worse than last year, when my business lost clients. It was a rough year for everyone. The new year has to be better!” WORLD continued on 3A PROPERTY INSURANCE By BRENT KALLESTADAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — Marco Tarafa was stunned to find that his homeowners’ policy is increasing by nearly $1,000 a year — all because inspectors couldn’t get into his attic, where there was no crawl space and about 24 inches of insulation. Tarafa was a customer of state-backed Citizens Property Insurance Corp. for eight years, and his rates had been stable over much of that time — until now. Tarafa pays $2,200 for his policy on his 1,800-square-foot, ranch-style home in Miami Gardens. Unless something changes between now and when the policy renews in May, he’s looking at a $980 increase, a hike of nearly 45 percent. “Just because of that, they can’t get into my roof!” Tarafa said. He is among thousands of Florida homeowners forced to take coverage offered by Citizens and a target for being moved to another company in Citizens’ attempts to downsize. For Tarafa and millions of other Florida businesses and homeowners, property insur-ance rates keep soaring even though a hurricane hasn’t made a direct hit over the state in seven years.

Illinoislate, 31-10 ORANGE BOWL By TIM REYNOLDSAP Sports WriterMIAMI — EJ Manuel completed 26 of 38 passes for 291 yards and accounted for two touchdowns, including a 9-yard run on the opening play of the fourth quarter as No. 13 Florida State was atop No. 16 Northern Illinois 31-10 at the Orange Bowl on Tuesday night. Manuel also had a touchdown pass to Rashad Greene late in the first half for Florida State, bidding for a 12-win season for the first time since 1999. Things came easily to Florida State in the first half, before Northern Illinois found a rhythm after the break. Looking like they were on the cusp of getting embarrassed in their Bowl Championship Series debut, the Huskies clawed back into the game with a third-quar-ter rally. Jordan Lynch threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Martel Moore with 9:55 left in the third, getting the Huskies within a touchdown. Florida State led 31-10 with 5:30 remaining in the fourth quarter.

AROUND FLORIDA Celebratory gunfire hurts 2 JACKSONVILLE Police are blaming celebra tory gunfire for injuries suffered by two people watching New Years Eve fireworks in separate parts of Florida. Lt. Jimmy Judge of the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office said that shortly before midnight Monday, an 8-year-old boy in down town Jacksonville told his father that something had hurt his foot. Judge said that when the boys father examined his shoe, he found a bullet. St. Petersburg police said a 67-year-old woman was leaning against a bal cony railing at a yacht club when she felt something strike her right wrist just after midnight. A bullet was removed from her wrist at a hospital. Authorities urged people not to fire their guns in the air in celebration because the falling bullets could strike innocent bystanders. Missing boaters believed dead OVIEDO State wild life officials said two boat ers who went missing on a central Florida lake are likely dead. Jason Cobb of Osteen and Charles Jackson of Deltona were reported missing Saturday after they failed to return from an early morning fishing trip on Lake Jesup. Lt. Jeff Hudson of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said Monday that the search for the men had turned into a recovery mission. Authorities previously said it appeared that the men had been thrown from their boat. The 15-foot boat was found undamaged. Hudson said investigators have noth ing to suggest they sur vived this incident. Wildlife officials say the shallow lake is home to a large alligator population, though temperatures have been too cold for the rep tiles to be very active. 2 planes damaged in fender bender FORT LAUDERDALE Authorities say no one was injured when two airplanes got into a sort of fenderbender at Fort LauderdaleHollywood International Airport. The Broward Sheriffs Office says a taxiing Spirit Airlines Airbus A320 clipped a US Airways Airbus A-320 that was parked Monday night in a remote area away from the gate. Authorities say the left wing of the Spirit aircraft was damaged, while the US Airways aircraft was left with a gash in its tail section. Firefighters were called to the scene but there was no fuel leak from either aircraft. Pilot spots theft at own house LABELLE Authorities said a man flying over his own house spotted a man stealing a trailer. The News-Press reported that David Zehntner was flying over his home in LaBelle on Sunday when he saw a truck in his driveway. He lowered his altitude to get a closer look and saw a man attaching Zehntners trailer to the truck. Zehntner followed the truck and called the Glades County Sheriffs Office from the air. Glades deputies contacted the Lee County Sheriffs Office, which found the truck as it headed into Charlotte County. Gary Haines, 59, of Virginia, was arrested and charged with grand theft. Beach closes after shark bite JENSEN BEACH A central Florida beach has been closed following reports of a shark bite. Officials said a swimmer was bit on the lower leg or ankle Monday afternoon at Jensen Beach. The bite was minor and not consid ered life-threatening. Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers reported that lifeguards flew double red flags, meaning no swim ming. Officials said they would evaluate beach conditions later this week to deter mine if theyll re-open. PIP rates unlikely to change much TALLAHASSEE Florida drivers looking to save money resulting from a new law designed to crack down on no-fault auto insurance fraud may have to look hard to find any significant savings. Any potential savings coming on the personal injury protection portion of a policy is so slight that it is likely to be offset by increases in other parts of the coverage. The new, tougher PIP law which actually took effect on July 1 caps benefits at $2,500 unless a doctor, osteopathic physician, dentist or a supervised physicians assistant or advanced reg istered nurse practitioner determines theres an emergency medical condi tion. Chiropractors cannot make that determination. Green Day to resume club tour LOS ANGELES G reen Day is going back on the road. The Grammy-winning punk band announced new tour dates Monday. The band canceled the rest of its 2012 club schedule and post poned the start of a 2013 arena tour after singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrongs substance abuse prob lems emerged publicly in September when he had a profane meltdown on the stage of the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. The bands representative announced later that Armstrong was headed to treatment for substance abuse. I just want to thank you all for the love and support youve shown for the past few months, Armstrong told fans in a statement Monday. Believe me, it hasnt gone unno ticed and Im eternally grateful to have such an amazing set of friends and family. Im getting better every day. So now, without further ado, the show must go on. The tour is scheduled to begin March 28 in the Chicago area. Tickets for postponed shows will be honored on the new dates, and refunds will be available for canceled shows. The band released their most recent album, Tre, on Dec. 11, more than a month ahead of schedule. ESPNs Storm returns 3 weeks after accident NEW YORK ESPN anchor Hannah Storm returned to the air on New Years Day, exactly three weeks after she was seriously burned in a propane gas grill accident at her home. Storm suffered second-degree burns on her chest and hands, and first-degree burns to her face and neck. She lost her eyebrows and eye lashes, and roughly half her hair. Storm hosted ABCs telecast of the 2013 Rose Parade on Tuesday. Her left hand was bandaged and she wore extensions to fill out her hair. Im a little nervous about things I used to take for granted, she said before the parade. Little things like putting on makeup and even turning pages on my script. The award-winning sportscaster and producer was preparing dinner outside her home in Connecticut on the night of Dec. 11 when she noticed the flame on the grill had gone out. She turned off the gas and when she reignited it there was an explosion and a wall of fire came at me. Playboys Hugh Hefner marries 26-year-old LOS ANGELES Hugh Hefner is celebrating the new year as a mar ried man once again. The 86-year-old Playboy magazine founder exchanged vows with his runaway bride, Crystal Harris, at a private Playboy Mansion ceremony on New Years Eve. Harris, a 26-yearold Playmate of the Month in 2009, broke off a previous engagement to Hefner just before they were to be married in 2011. Playboy said on Tuesday that the couple celebrated at a New Years Eve party at the mansion with guests that included comic Jon Lovitz and Gene Simmons of KISS.

Revelers with New Year’s hats and sunglasses boasting “2013” packed the streets in the 35-degree cold to count down the first ball drop in decades without Dick Clark, who died in April and was honored with his name printed on confetti and on one of the crystal panels on the Times Square ball. Syracuse University student Taylor Nanz, 18, said she and a friend had been standing in Times Square since 1:20 p.m. Monday. They hadn’t moved from their spot because “if you leave, you lose your place,” she said. “It’s the first time — and the last time,” she said. “Never again.” Security in Times Square was tight, with a mass of uniformed police and plain-clothes officers assigned to blend into the crowd. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly claimed that Times Square would be the “safest place in the world on New Year’s Eve,” and officers used barriers to prevent overcrowding and checkpoints to inspect vehicles, enforce an alcohol ban and check handbags. In the state capital of California, a midnight fireworks show was canceled after a fight at a Sacramento restaurant ended with two people fatally shot and three wounded. But in Las Vegas, police and about 300 Nevada National Guard troops kept the night peaceful, with only 13 people arrest-ed. Sin City hosted sold-out concerts fea-turing Beyonce, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Black Keys, and revelers jammed the Strip to watch as seven hotel-casinos unleashed identical eight-minute rooftop fireworks displays at midnight. The celebrations on the West Coast took place nearly 24 hours after lavish fire-works displays lit up skylines in Sydney, Hong Kong and Shanghai. In Myanmar, about 90,000 people gathered in a field to watch a countdown for the first time, according to organizers. The reformist government that took office in 2011 in the country, long under military rule, threw its first public New Year’s cel-ebration in decades. In the United Arab Emirates city of Dubai, multicolored fireworks danced up and down the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. In Rome, Pope Benedict XVI celebrated with a vespers service in St. Peter’s Basilica to give thanks for 2012 and look ahead to 2013. He said that despite all the death and injustice in the world, goodness prevails. A man scaled the scaffolding around St. Peter’s Square and draped a banner calling on the pope to “Stop Terrorism.” In Russia, spectators filled Moscow’s Red Square as fireworks exploded near the Kremlin. In Rio de Janeiro, revel-ers dressed head-to-toe in white as dic-tated by Brazilian tradition flooded onto Copacabana beach for a concert. In London, the chimes of the clock inside the Big Ben tower counted down the final seconds of 2012 and fireworks dazzled the sky above Parliament Square. Streamers shot out of the London Eye wheel and blazing rockets launched from the banks of the River Thames. But parts of Europe held scaled-back festivities and street parties, the mood was restrained — if hopeful — for a 2013 that is projected to be a sixth straight year of recession amid Greece’s worst eco-nomic crisis since World War II. Festivities were canceled across New Delhi, the Indian capital, amid days of mourning and reflection about wom-en’s safety after a rape victim died on Saturday. In Times Square, some revelers checked their cellphones for news of lawmakers’ tentative deal to skirt the so-called fis-cal cliff, a combination of expiring tax cuts and spending cuts that threatened to reverberate globally. The U.S. Senate approved a bill to avert the cliff well after midnight, though a vote in the House was pending Tuesday or Wednesday. The recent elementary school massacre in Newtown, Conn., and the devastation from Superstorm Sandy also mingled amid the memories of 2012. “This has been a very eventful year, on many levels,” Denise Norris said as she and her husband, the Rev. Urie Norris, surveyed the Times Square crowd wait-ing for the countdown show with Ryan Seacrest as host. Yvonne Gomez, 53, a physician from Grand Forks, N.D., glowed as she and her husband, 63-year-old potato farmer Gregg Halverson, took in the festivities in New York. “I couldn’t begin the new year in a more beautiful way,” she said. “I married him two weeks ago and here we are in the middle of Times Square celebrating the new year — two widowers who found each other.” For Elvis Rivera, of Manhattan, who stopped by Times Square to take photos, 2012 a death and job losses in his family. How did he feel about its end? “Relieved,” Rivera said.Associated Press writers Hannah Drier in Las Vegas; Colleen Long in New York; Aye Aye Win in Yangon, Myanmar; Silvia Hui in London, and Ashok Sharma in New Delhi contributed to this report.

Burns was flown by heli-copter to a Gainesville-area hospital with his injuries. Christopher Michael Richards, no age provided, 811 SW Hammock Hill Circle, Lake City, the passenger in the vehicle, also suffered injuries in the wreck and was taken to a local hospital. The wreck occurred around 2:33 p.m. on U.S. 441, about six miles south of Lake City. According to preliminary FHP reports, Burns was driving a green 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis headed south and attempt-ed to pass another vehicle. Burns’ vehicle reportedly began to swerve within the lane, then ran off the road to the left near a driveway and went airborne for several feet. Once the car landed, it continued southeast. According to Florida Highway patrol troopers at the scene, physical evi-dence indicated Burns swerved right to avoid the house. After Burns swerved to the right, the right front of the car struck a tree then its rear struck another tree. The car came to rest wedged between the two trees. Four FHP units, three Columbia County Sheriff’s Office deputies, a Columbia County Fire Department truck and two of the department’s administrative per-sonnel responded to the scene. Florida Highway Patrol investigators remained on scene well after 4 p.m. com-pleting their reports. Troopers said it did not appear either man’s injuries were life-threatening. tistics. In some areas, the increases are much higher. Data from the New York-based Insurance Information Institute shows homeowners’ claims are up by an average of more than 17 percent over the past decade. They are virtually all due to non-catastrophe claims involving water. In many instances, they are claims for issues ranging from leaky toilets to burst water heaters. Florida’s rates have also been hurt by soaring claims on losses from sinkholes. A more industry-friendly Office of Insurance Regulation pressured by Gov. Rick Scott and a Republican-led Legislature means consumers pay more. “It’s a dangerous day in Florida when the Office of Insurance Regulation turns into the office of blind trust because they lack the resources to independently verify form filings from insurance companies,” said Sean Shaw, a Tampa attorney and self-styled consumer advocate associated with a firm that frequently litigates on behalf of policyholders. There is little competition in the Florida property insurance market because many consumers can buy from only one com-pany — usually Citizens. Founded by the Legislature in 2002 for homeowners who could not get private policies, it has become the state’s largest property insurance com-pany with more than 1.3 million customers after shedding some 160,000 policies in recent weeks to private companies. Scott and the Legislature are anxious for Citizens’ to reduce its overall liability, which would exceed its ability to pay off in the aftermath of a catastrophe. “Gov. Scott, of course, wants premiums to go up and he wants Citizens to be depop-ulated at any cost to the policyholder,” said state Rep. Mike Fasano, whose west Florida district encompasses the highest concentration of Citizens’ policy owners in the state. “Citizens is only there because, unfortunately, so many couldn’t find insurance anywhere else.” And while its premiums have risen by an average of 8.1 percent statewide over the last four years, some, including new president Barry Gilway, say the company still doesn’t charge market rates and needs to raise them to a point comparable to what a private company would charge. That puts Gilway, who has 40 years of experience in private insurance, right into the crosshairs of politicians who generally abhor any rate increases being passed along to their constituents. Citizens’ says it would need a 16.4 percent premium increase on all products in 2013 to be actuarially sound. John Rollins, an actuary and member of Citizens’ governing board, said Citizens is “a competitive drag” on private insurance and calls on the Legislature to return it to a safety net insurer with a comprehensive reform bill. But it seems the more lawmakers try to make Citizens smaller, the bigger it gets. Lisa Miller, a former deputy insurance commissioner who now is an industry consultant, said more private companies would sell policies in Florida if Citizens were made smaller or dissolved. “Competing with government is impossible, and private companies know that — whether companies sell insurance or hamburgers,” Miller said. “Florida’s policy-makers are working to find a way to reduce Citizens and the government’s competitive edge in the insurance business, and we must make that happen — soon.” But that’s proving to be easier said than done. Many Citizens’ customers aren’t enamored with the idea of moving to a private insurer. Details of bill averting ‘fiscal cliff’The Associated PressHighlights of a bill approved Tuesday by the Senate and House aimed at avert-ing wide tax increases and budget cuts scheduled to take effect in the new year. The measure would raise taxes by about $600 billion over 10 years compared with tax policies that were due to expire at midnight Monday. It would also delay for two months across-the-board cuts to the budgets of the Pentagon and numerous domestic agencies. Highlights include:—Income tax rates: Extends decade-old tax cuts on incomes up to $400,000 for individuals, $450,000 for couples. Earnings above those amounts would be taxed at a rate of 39.6 percent, up from the current 35 percent. Extends Clinton-era caps on itemized deductions and the phase-out of the personal exemption for individuals making more than $250,000 and couples earning more than $300,000. —Estate tax: Estates would be taxed at a top rate of 40 percent, with the first $5 million in value exempted for individual estates and $10 million for family estates. In 2012, such estates were subject to a top rate of 35 percent. —Capital gains, dividends: Taxes on capital gains and dividend income exceed-ing $400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for families would increase from 15 per-cent to 20 percent. —Alternative minimum tax: Permanently addresses the alternative minimum tax and indexes it for inflation to prevent nearly 30 million middleand upper-middle income taxpayers from being hit with higher tax bills averaging almost $3,000. The tax was originally designed to ensure that the wealthy did not avoid owing taxes by using loopholes. —Other tax changes: Extends for five years Obama-sought expansions of the child tax credit, the earned income tax credit, and an up-to-$2,500 tax credit for college tuition.

Taxes will rise on those with incomes of $400K;spending cuts deferred.‘Fiscal cliff’ deal blocks pay hike for CongressBy ANDREW TAYLORAssociated PressWASHINGTON — Legislation to prevent the government from going over the so-called fiscal cliff will also block a $900 automatic pay hike for members of Congress. It’s one more reason for lawmakers to vote for the measure extending Bush-era tax cuts on individual income up to $450,000 while increasing rates for earnings above that threshold. Under a 1989 law, lawmakers are supposed to receive automatic cost-of-living pay hikes, but as Congress’ approval ratings have fallen, lawmakers have rou-tinely voted to reject the raise. Lawmakers make $174,000 a year. They had already voted in September to block the pay raise through March 27, but President Barack Obama recently issued an executive order to implement it, along with a pay increase for federal workers.

Thanks, Washington.It was the least you could do. And it only took threat of fiscal meltdown to do it. Of course, the House vote Tuesday to avert the fiscal cliff was just half the battle. Everyone will have to reconvene in March to finish what they couldn’t by New Year’s Eve. The debt-ceiling debate, which sparked this whole showdown back in August 2011, is poised to resurface then, as are the hard questions, deferred yet again, about where to cut spending. What we’ve seen unfold in D.C. over the last few days was a shameful spectacle, though it could have been worse. Still, let’s not kid ourselves.When Democrats and Republicans come back to the table in March, there’s a rea-sonably good chance it will be. The least they could do Today’s GOP needs reform OUR OPINION I t was as if a door had slowly creaked open and, from somewhere down below in the Capitol crypt, they brought up a tarnished old brass plac-ard from the Cold War era, hung it beneath the big dome — and began doing business in 2012 as a joint committee on Un-American Activities. With one exception: Instead of investigating perceived un-American activities, the senators and representatives of 2012 began committing them. Sadly, there just is no other way to describe what the 112th Congress did to the American people throughout 2012. Faced with an economy that was struggling to recover from the Great Recession — the worst recession since the Great Depression — the senators and representa-tives willfully sent all the wrong signals and did all the wrong things. First, they decided the only way they could be trusted to do the right thing to curb America’s growing debt was to cre-ate, for the first time ever, a “fiscal cliff” — with man-datory budget cuts so mas-sive no Congress would dare let it happen. Then they spent most of 2012 sending signals to global markets, govern-ment agencies, and com-panies large and small that this Congress just might let it happen. Ideologues insisted they’d rather push America off the cliff rather than compromise one ideo-logical iota. The result: The uncertainty they created set off a predictable chain-reac-tion. Washington got so caught up in its campaign name-calling that it set off a chain reaction of bud-getary fear, and caution slowed America’s recovery and hurt most those most needing help. Belatedly, we can connect the econo-dots: Federal departments and agencies, concerned about prospective cuts, froze new hiring. That led federal contractors (huge, middle-sized and small) to freeze hiring. Meanwhile, state and local governments froze hiring. So did their contractors, large and small. All of which explains why the markets alternate-ly trembled and panicked. Looking back, there was nothing President Barack Obama and the Republicans agreed to in the final weeks, days, hours and minutes of 2012 that couldn’t have been proposed, debated, amend-ed and enacted half a year ago. Even though every-one knows that in election years the in-party pops corks at every economic uptick and the out-party privately rejoices at every downtick. But 2012 was destined to be a special case — as we learned after an unusu-ally public declaration of the sort of hardball politics that is usually kept behind closed doors. Two days after Republicans gained in the 2010 elections, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., declared: “Our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term.” Well, that old dog didn’t hunt. Even though Republicans did little to help America achieve eco-nomic successes Obama could claim credit for in his campaign. Bizarrely, Republicans defined themselves as the party determined to protect low tax rates for millionaires, while Obama championed efforts to extend middle class tax rates that were due to expire at the end of 2012. But media watchdogs did Republicans an unin-tended favor by not investi-gating and calculating the number of jobs that were frozen in 2012 due to the uncertainty posed by the pending fiscal cliff. The total numbers of jobs that were once-budgeted but remained unfilled in 2012 would have been the final, paint-by-the-numbers big picture of what today’s floundering Republican Party has done to — rather than for — the American middle class. This is, after all, the same middle class Ronald Reagan appealed to so extraordinarily, not so long ago. Viewed through Reaganesque lenses, the party Reagan once revital-ized now seems sadly and even unpatriotically out of touch with the aspirations of its middle class true-believers. Today’s GOP, once grand, is now mainly just old. And much in need of re-casting and reform. LETTERS POLICY Letters to the Editor should be typed or neatly written and double spaced.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Q HISTORYnet.com S ince the voters thought Mitt Romney could not save us from the fix we’re in, who’s going to do it? The fiscal cliff is just one of many cliffs that has threat-ened us with a mighty tumble over its edge, and Congress is more nearly the sneak who trips you than the guide who leads you to safety. Don’t meanwhile look for rescue from the White House amateur other-wise known as President Barack Obama. As an example of his helpful-ness, this New Year arrives with five new Obamacare taxes that will add painfully to health costs and otherwise bollix up our lives. Then there’s this trick of nominating Sen. John Kerry as secretary of state, and yes, that would be the same John Kerry who returned from the Vietnam War saying our soldiers were war crimi-nals. He also lied about being in Cambodia one Christmas during that war and associated with a radical veterans group that on one occasion voted on whether to assassinate U.S. senators it didn’t like. Remember how, during his 2004 campaign for president, he wanted to risk American lives by having a U.S.-led peace-keeping force save Haiti’s dictatorial president from rebels because he had gotten into office through a vote of the people? Well, Adolf Hitler also got into office by a vote of the people, one proof among thousands that the fact of being elected only proves you can fool some of the people some of the time. A horror of many liberals during that campaign was how Kerry, strutting about as a war hero, was denigrated by veterans of Vietnam Swift Boat operations as pretty much a joke of a soldier. The group’s denunciations seem to have been over-wrought on some (though not all) particulars, but its TV ads were a mew-ing kitty cat next to the 2012 TV ads depicting the morally solid Romney as something close to a mur-derer. Where was liberal angst this time around? Maybe Kerry as secretary of state would actu-ally get to Cambodia some Christmas, but my firmer conviction is that he would trot elsewhere around the world making a clown of himself and hurting our nation. Senators pretty much give their Cabinet approval to other senators, and my guess is he will get okayed. But this country will continue to be something other than OK as long as we depend on Washington politicians whose failings could be listed in nothing less than the equivalent of the 356,000-page U.S. code of laws and regula-tions. All of which brings me to the states. Maybe that’s our way out of at least some of the mess we are in. Wisconsin, under a Republican governor, took on public unions and did get some meaningful measures through the Legislature. More recent-ly, Michigan voted for right to work laws, mean-ing that unions cannot use the coercive powers of government to keep them in business while simulta-neously robbing workers of their rights and the economy of thriving businesses. There’s a great, large fiction in this nation of how unions have forever been the friend of workers when, in fact, there have been all kinds of instances of anti-worker thug-gery, theft and economic mayhem at the hands of organized labor. The good and the bad have been mixed for years, even to the point of unions being a major factor in the shut-ting down of businesses. A real issue is not just high wages vs. low wages, but decent wages vs. no wages. The problem for the states, of course, is that their constitutionally promised dual sovereignty with the federal govern-ment hasn’t been respect-ed and that some of them, such as California, are victims of politics as bad as what you find in Washington. In the end, both nationally and in D.C., a wised up electorate will have to make the dif-ference, and maybe, when things get bad enough, that will happen.

Sandy Hook students, teachers head back to school By JOHN CHRISTOFFERSEN and PAT EATON-ROBB Associated Press NEWTOWN, Conn. Since escaping a gunmans rampage at their elementary school, the 8-year-old Connors triplets have suffered nightmares, jumped at noises and clung to their parents a little more than usual. Now parents like David Connors are bracing to send their chil dren back to school, nearly three weeks after the shooting ram page at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. It wont be easy for the parents or the children, who heard the gunshots that killed 20 of their classmates and six educators. Im nervous about it, Connors said. Its uncharted waters for us. I know its going to be difficult. Classes will start Thursday at a repurposed school in the neigh boring town of Monroe, where the students desks have been taken along with backpacks and other belongings that were left behind in the chaos following the shooting on Dec. 14. Families have been coming in to see the new school, and an open house was scheduled for today. Workers have been getting the school ready, painting, moving furniture and even raising the floors in the bathrooms of the for mer middle school so the smaller elementary school students can reach the toilets. Connors, a 40-year-old engi neer, felt reassured after recently visiting the new setup at the for mer Chalk Hill school in Monroe. He said his children were excited to see their backpacks and coats, and that the family was greeted by a police officer at the door and grief counselors in the hallways. Teachers will try to make it as normal a day as possible for the children, schools Superintendent Janet Robinson said. We want to get back to teach ing and learning, she said. We will obviously take time out from the academics for any conversa tions that need to take place ...

GET 1 Pair FREE E YE EXAM S by Independent Optometrist Survivors of bus crash say some ejected By JONATHAN J. COOPER Associated Press PENDLETON, Ore. Survivors of a bus crash that killed nine people on a partly icy section of interstate in rural Eastern Oregon said Monday some passengers were thrown from the vehicle through bro ken windows after it skidded out of control, smashed through a guardrail and plummeted 200 feet down an embankment. When the tour bus came to a rest, terrified passengers looked around for their loved ones. Some mothers screamed to find their son or daughter, said Jaemin Seo, a 23-year-old exchange student from Suwon, South Korea. The charter bus, owned by a British Columbia company, crashed Sunday just east of Pendleton while returning to Canada from Las Vegas one of the stops on a nine-day western tour. Aboard were 48 people, some of them exchange students from South Korea. Some passengers were from British Columbia, and some from Washington state. Investigators say there also may have been a Japanese passenger and one from Taiwan, and theyre working with consular officials from those nations to identify them. The survivors, who range in age from 7 to 74, were sent to 10 hospitals in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. At least 10 were released Monday, police said. Authorities said Monday it could be a month or more before investigators and prosecu tors decide whether to file any charges against the bus driver, a 54-year-old Vancouver, B.C., man who was among the injured. He has spoken with investigators, Lt. Gregg Hastings said. The bus was traveling west bound in the left lane of Interstate 84 when it hit a concrete barrier, veered across both westbound lanes and plunged through the guardrail and down the embank ment, Hastings said. Police havent determined how fast the bus was going when it struck the center barrier. The crash occurred near a spot on the interstate called Deadman Pass, at the top of a steep, seven-mile descent from the Blue Mountains. That section of road is so notorious that state transportation officials published a warning for truck drivers say ing it has some of the most changeable and severe weather conditions in the Northwest. Still, Oregon Department of Transportation spokesman Tom Strandberg said that while there were icy spots where the crash occurred, it was nothing unusual for this time of year. He said a sanding truck had applied sand a few hours ear lier and was behind the bus mak ing another run when the crash occurred. The sand truck driver was among the first at the scene. The highway has been shut down several times this winter, mostly due to crashed trucks blocking the roadway, Strandberg said. A decision to close the road or require chains is made by the local maintenance crew, he said. Seo said he was awakened by screaming and was ejected from a broken window as the bus careened down the hill. Seo had a broken ankle, a gash in his arm that required stitches and shallow scratches across his face. He is an exchange student from South Korea studying in Vancouver, British Columbia. Berlyn Sanderson, 22, of Surrey, British Columbia, said she also was thrown from the bus. Its kind of like one of those dreams you have of the world ending, Sanderson told report ers. Rescuers faced the challenge of bringing survivors 200 feet up a steep cliff, Pendleton Fire Chief Gary Woodson said. They descended the hill and used ropes to help retrieve people from the wreckage in freezing weather. Some survivors were carried on backboards by six or eight rescuers.

Governor to sue over Penn State sanctions Associated Press HARRISBURG Gov. Tom Corbett said Tuesday he plans to sue the NCAA in federal court over sanc tions imposed against Penn State in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal. The Republican gov ernor scheduled a news conference for today on Penn States campus in State College to announce the filing in U.S. District Court in Harrisburg. The sanctions, agreed to by the university in July, included a $60 million fine that would be used nationally to finance child abuse prevention grants. State and federal lawmak ers have raised objections to the money being spent outside Pennsylvania. A message seeking comment on the expected lawsuit was left with the NCAA on Tuesday. NCAA president Mark Emmert had said in a Dec. 12 letter that a task force had been charged with allocating at least 25 percent of the fine money to programs in Pennsylvania. Hatfield-McCoy battle site found By BRUCE SCHREINER Associated Press LOUISVILLE, Ky. The Hatfield clan New Years attack on Randolph McCoys cabin marked a turning point in Americas most famous feud the homestead was set ablaze, and two McCoys were gunned down. Hatfield family members and sup porters were soon thrown in jail. Artifacts recently unearthed appear to pin point the location of the 1888 ambush in the woods of Pike County in eastern Kentucky. Excavators found bullets believed to have been fired by the McCoys in self-defense, along with fragments of windows and ceramic from the familys cabin. This is one of the most famous conflicts in American history, and weve got bullets fired from one of the key battles. It doesnt get any better than that, said Bill Richardson, a West Virginia University extension professor who was part of the recent dis covery. The property is owned by Bob Scott, a Hatfield descendant who has sus pected for years that the hilly land was the site of the brutal attack. He grew up listening to stories from his parents and grandpar ents about the 19th-century feud. My father told me years ago that someday this well would talk, Scott said, referring to the well on the site where Randolph McCoys daughter Alafair died while trying to flee the attackers. Now backed by the discovery, Scott plans to capitalize on the historic 70-acre site near the West Virginia line. The options include a housing development fea turing horseback and ATV trails, he said. Scotts home is about 75 yards from where the cabin stood. The McCoys moved to nearby Pikeville after the homestead was burned. The artifacts were found last year during filming of a National Geographic Channel show about the families feud.

By FRED GOODALLAssociated PressTAMPA — Connor Shaw led No. 11 South Carolina to the brink of victory and Dylan Thompson carried the Gamecocks over the hump in the Outback Bowl. Thompson came off the bench to throw a 32-yard touchdown pass with 11 sec-onds remaining Tuesday, enabling South Carolina to match a school record for victories in a season with a 33-28 win over No. 19 Michigan. Thompson replaced Shaw during the winning drive, covering the final 43 yards after Shaw begin the march from his own 30. Devin Gardner’s third TD pass of the game had given Michigan a 28-27 lead. Shaw threw for 227 yards and two touchdowns after missing South Carolina’s regular season finale with a left foot sprain. Thompson led the Gamecocks (11-2) to a victory over their archrival, and threw for 117 yards and two TDs a back-up Tuesday. Gardner threw for 214 yards in his fifth start for Michigan (8-5) since By KYLE HIGHTOWERAssociated PressORLANDO — Aaron Murray threw five touchdown passes to set a Georgia bowl record, including two in the fourth quarter, as the sixth-ranked Bulldogs beat No. 23 Nebraska 45-31 in the Capital One Bowl on Tuesday. Murray shook off a pair of first-half interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, and passed for 427 yards — also a Bulldogs’ bowl record — against the nation’s top-ranked pass-ing defense. He was named the game’s most valuable player. Georgia (12-2) reached 12 wins for the third time in school history. Nebraska (10-4) lost its third consecutive bowl game, and finished the season with two straight woeful defen-sive performances. The Cornhuskers lost the Big Ten championship game 70-31. The Cornhuskers led 24-23 at the half, but committed two of their three turnovers in the final 30 minutes. Taylor Martinez had two interceptions and two touchdown passes for Nebraska and Rex Burkhead rushed 140 yards in his final college game. Nebraska’s offense finished with 443 total yards, but the Bulldogs defense was stingy when it needed to be. They sacked Martinez five times, with All-American linebacker Jarvis Jones notching two. Damian Swann had both Georgia interceptions. Murray found Keith Marshall free near the sideline for a 24-yard touch-down pass that gave Georgia a 38-31 lead with 14:52 to play in the game. Following a Nebraska punt, Murray then hit Chris Conley for a short pass in space over the middle. Conley out-ran the Cornhuskers defenders for an 87-yard score. That play came after a 49-yard touchdown catch by Conley that helped Georgia tie the game in the third quarter. By ANDY HALLPalatka Daily NewsPALATKA — It looked like Palatka’s 17th missed free throw of the night wouldn’t matter with 2.5 seconds left and the Panthers leading Columbia High by two points in the boys champion-ship game of the inaugural Jarvis Williams Christmas Tournament. Morris Marshall made it matter with a shot that will be talked about for years both in Palatka and Lake City. Firing from three-quarter court, Marshall banked it home as the Tigers shocked the Panthers, 81-80, in the third, and by all means most dramatic, buzzer-beating game of the tournament. “Marshall — what can I say? He’s a big-time player, he hit a big-time shot,” said Columbia head coach Horace Jefferson, the former Palatka Central star athlete and St. Johns River College basketball coach. “We came here to win the tournament. (On) the ride over here, the kids were as focused as they’ve ever been.” The shot cemented tournament MVP honors for Marshall, joined on the all-tournament team by Tae Foster as the Tigers improved to 8-4. DaCarr Smith and Jaylon Oxendine were all-tournament players for the Panthers, who take a 12-3 record into the New Year. “It was a great game. I knew it would come down to this,” said Palatka coach Donald Lockhart. “I give credit to Lake City. At the end of the day, it boiled down to free throws.” Sparked by an incredible threepoint shooting barrage from Datavian Thomas, who drained four in a 1:20 span at the end of the third and beginning of the fourth quarter, Palatka led by as many as 16 in the fourth. But as the Panthers clunked away from the line — they were 10-for-27 on the night — Columbia went on an 18-3 tear, drawing within 76-75 on Tr Simmons’ bucket with 1:58 remaining. Smith hit a couple of free throws with 1:45 left for a three-point Palatka lead, but Foster answered with a three-point play at the 1:32 mark and, at 78-all, the game was tied for the first time since the first quarter. Holding for the last shot, the Panthers ran the clock down to 29.4 before the Tigers came up with a steal and an opportunity to win in regulation. They missed twice from close range, though, and Cornell Wilson rebounded for Palatka with 20 seconds left. The Panthers took a time out with 7.7 remaining, got the ball back after Columbia slapped it out of bounds at 6.3, and Desmond Chandler drove into the lane for a basket that put Palatka up 80-78 with 2.5 ticks left. Chandler was fouled in the process, but missed the free throw, setting the stage for Marshall’s incredible shot. “We got out of character (in the Lake City Reporter SPORTS Wednesday, January 2, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Editor754-0421tkirby@lakecityreporter.com 1BSPORTS BRIEFS Murray throws for 427 yards, five TDs in 45-31 Capital One Bowl victory.

Associated PressJACKSONVILLE — Behind huge inter-ceptions early and late, No. 21 Northwestern beat Mississippi State 34-20 in the Gator Bowl on Tuesday and snapped college foot-ball’s longest postseason losing streak. The Wildcats (10-3) won their first bowl game since 1949, snapping a nine-game losing streak that was tied for the longest in NCAA his-tory. They also celebrated double-digit victories for the first time since the 1995 Rose Bowl season. Quentin Williams returned an interception 29 yards for a touchdown on the third play of the game and Nick Vanhoose set up a late touchdown with a 39-yard interception return. Those plays were the dif-ference in a back-and-forth game that featured more interceptions (seven) than touchdowns (six).Oklahoma State 58, Purdue 14DALLAS — Clint Chelf threw three of Oklahoma State’s five touchdown passes and the Cowboys shook off a disappointing Big 12 finish by dominat-ing Purdue in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. The Cowboys, a year removed from a Fiesta Bowl win that capped the best season in school his-tory, forced five turnovers and had another short touchdown drive after a 64-yard punt return from Josh Stewart. It was the biggest bowl win for Oklahoma State since coach Mike Gundy was the quarterback in a 62-14 rout of Wyoming in the 1988 Holiday Bowl. The Cowboys (8-5) missed out on upper-tier bowls after narrow losses in their last two Big 12 games. Purdue’s Robert Mavre didn’t get to 100 yards pass-ing until Oklahoma State led 45-0. Oklahoma State’s 58 points were the most in a bowl game at the Fair Park stadium. Southern Cal scored 55 against Texas Tech in 1995. Richard Skipper posted a +7 score to take first-place honors in Monday’s Top of the Hill match. Skipper finished ahead of a strong +3 performance by Mike Kahlich and +1 scores by Steve Nail and Joe Herring. Results in Wednesday Blitz action were: first-Chet Carter +3; second-Bruce Park +2; third (tie)-Joe Herring, Mike Kahlich and Phillip Russell at +1. Closest to pin winners were Russell on Nos. 3, 11 and 17, Brandon Goss on No. 5 and Jim Munns on No.15. Skin winners were Goss, Todd Carter, Chet Carter, Russell (2) and Kahlich (2). The Friday Dogfight had Larry Boone first at +5 and Ronnie Ash second at +4. Closest to pin winners were Randy Heavrin on No. 3, Gerald Smithy on Nos. 5 and 15, Ash on No. 11 and Boone on No. 17. Skin winners were Heavrin, Ash (2), Joe Herring (2) and Smithy (2). The Sunday Scramble was won by the team of Tiara Carter, Todd Carter and Ricky Crawford Jr. at 4 under par. The Sunday Scramble starts at 3 p.m. Steve Thomas served notice with his first birdie on No. 9, then reeled off four more on the inward side to finish with a round of 67 and +12 points in Sunday’s blitz. He added tee shots inside 8 feet on Nos. 15 and 17 for closest to the pin winners. Tom Wade and Bob Wheary could only manage a second-place tie despite +9 scores. John Brewer (+6) was in solo fourth, fol-lowed by Mike Gough and Mickey Wilcox, both at +5. Strangely enough, none of Thomas’ birdies earned a skin. Gough picked up a skin with an eagle on No. 13. Dennis Hendershot Jr., Hank Rone and Wade had a skin apiece. Other closest to the pin winners were Robby Kerby on No. 5 and Bob Randall on No. 7. Bud Johnson cruised to an easy four-shot vic-tory in the Wednesday blitz with a +11. Mike McCranie (+7), Jonathan Allen (+4), George Burnham (+2) and Russ Adams (+1) trailed the winner. Hank Rone had the day’s best birdie, good for a skin and a modest pot hole win. Timmy Rogers and Johnson had the other skins. The Carr family ended the year with a flourish in the Saturday blitz. Jim and Mike both checked in at +4 to share first place. Eddy Brown and Bob Randall shared third place, a stroke behind the Carrs. Randall was the only winner to score a skin. The oth-ers went to Joe Paul, Scott Kishton and Dave Mehl. Bobby Simmons had the shot of the week in Good Old Boys play. His third stroke found the hole for an eagle on No. 9. In team play, match one ended in a resounding win for the team of Marc Risk, Simmons, Jim Bell and Tony Branch. They dominated the team of Monty Montgomery, Carl Wilson, Paul Davis and Dan Stephens by a score of 11-2. Match two involved three teams in a lowscoring duel. Rhea Hart, Jim Carr, Eli Witt and Bill Rogers posted a couple of late points to edge the second-place team of Don Howard, Dave Cannon, Merle Hibbard and Tom Elmore by 5-3. The team of Jerry West, Emerson Darst, Jim McGriff and Joe Persons finished another point back. Montgomery (37-3976) finished in the med-alist seat, despite serious competition from Risk (37-40-77) and Stephens (41-37-78). Hart (38) took front nine honors by a stroke over. Rogers (38) had no compe-tition on the back nine. Upcoming events: Q Jan. 19, MGA four man blind draw tournament; Q Jan. 25, Chamber of Commerce scramble.

By CHARLES ODUMAssociated PressATLANTA — Chandler Catanzaro was not about to let a blocked extra point earlier in the game get in the way of his last-second, game-winning field goal. Catanzaro kicked a 37-yard field goal as time expired to give No. 14 Clemson a wild 25-24 vic-tory over No. 9 Louisiana State in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Monday night. “I was ready when the opportunity came to me,” Catanzaro said. “It was next-kick mentality. I was so thankful for the opportunity.” Catanzaro, a former walkon from Greenville, S.C., made 16 of 17 field goals in the regular season. The kick gave Clemson its first 11-win season since its 1981 national champion-ship team. And Tigers coach Dabo Swinney thinks this is only the beginning. Trailing 24-22, Clemson (11-2) took possession on its 20 with 1:39 remain-ing. Tajh Boyd passed to DeAndre Hopkins for 26 yards on a fourth-and-16 play during the decisive 10-play drive. Clemson reached 11 wins for only the fourth time in school history and the first time since the 12-0 1981 team. “You can’t win 12 until you win 11,” Swinney said. “You can’t win a national championship until you learn how to win games like this. This was a land-mark win.” Boyd completed 36 of 50 passes for 346 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He set career highs for attempts and completions while winning the game MVP award. “Tajh Boyd was phenomenal,” LSU coach Les Miles said. “I did not expect the heroic, if you will, efforts that he had.” Hopkins had 13 catches for 191 yards and two touchdowns. Gator D ready for challengeBy GUERRY SMITHAssociated PressNEW ORLEANS — Rather than boast about Florida’s lofty national defen-sive rankings, safety Josh Evans questions whether they are an accurate reflec-tion of how good his unit really is. Florida ranks fifth nationally in total defense and third in scoring defense. Yet in Evans’ eyes, the No. 4 Gators (11-1) are second to none defensively, something they will try to prove when they play 22nd-ranked Louisville (10-2) and dynamic quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in the Sugar Bowl tonight. “Absolutely I feel we’re the best,” Evans said. “With our front seven and our back end, I see it. If you just look at the games we’ve played and the schedule we have, to not give up a touch-down against LSU and to not give up any points in the second half against (Heisman Trophy winning Texas A&M quarterback) Johnny Manziel ... that was huge for us.” Florida’s defense fared better than Alabama, the NCAA leader in yards allowed, against two of the best opponents both teams faced. The Gators limited Manziel and the Texas A&M offense to 324 yards for the game and zero points in the second half in a 20-17 September victory at College Station, Texas. Two months later, Manziel and the Aggies rolled up 418 yards in a 29-24 upset of the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The Gators beat LSU 14-6 in Gainesville on Oct. 6, holding the Tigers to two field goals and 200 yards. A month later, LSU gained 435 yards on the Crimson Tide. Denard Robinson injured his right elbow late in the season. Ace Sanders caught TD passes of 4 yards from Thompson and 31 yards from Shaw, who completed 18 of 26 passes before limp-ing off the field on the final drive.

DEAR ABBY: After years of denial I have come to realize that I am bisexual. I’m happily mar-ried to a straight man, and we have a great marriage I wouldn’t change for the world. He is my soul mate, and we plan to be together for many years to come. I just happen to be physi-cally attracted to women, too. Some people say I can’t be bisexual if I’ve never been with a woman; I say they’re wrong. Am I cor-rect? How do I deal with this in social situations? I’m afraid to put it on my social media profile for fear of a backlash from my family. I’d like my friends to know, but it doesn’t feel proper to just come out and say, “I’m bi.” I was hoping some of your readers might be able to give me some input. How does one “come out” without overdoing it or coming across the wrong way? Is there a right way? Should I continue keeping it a secret? I’m not sure what to do with my revelation. I have pondered it for some time now, and felt I could trust you to give me tactful, unbiased advice. -BI IN THE DEEP SOUTH DEAR B.I.T.D.S.: Bisexuality is having an attraction to people of both sexes, and yes, it is possi-ble to be bisexual without having acted upon it. However, being married means you are (happily) involved in a monogamous relationship. To announce that you are bisexual and/or put it on the Internet would be a mistake, in my opinion, not only because it would shock your fam-ily, but also because it might seem like you were advertising that you are “available.” Unless you are promiscuous, you are NOT available. Most married people agree to be com-mitted to their spouses regardless of whether they are straight, gay or bi. If you choose to confide your diverse sexual orien-tation to your close friends, that is your business. But if you do, please remember that once two people know something, the news will spread faster than the flu. P.S. If you do decide to divulge, be sure to tell your husband first. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I work in a jewelry store where the associates get generous discounts. I mentioned the amount of my discount at one family party, and ever since, my brother-in-law has continued to ask to use it for my sister. Abby, letting others use my discount is strictly for-bidden. Although the store may never find out, this goes against my morals. My sister’s birthday is in six weeks, and today I told him we can split the cost for the item she wants. I offered because I felt pres-sured. I have now decided that I can’t go against my morals, plus the item is pretty expensive even with my discount. How do I tell him no? I have told him before that it’s against company policy, but the message isn’t get-ting through. -FEELING USED IN GEORGIA DEAR FEELING USED: Tell your brother-in-law that even with the dis-count, splitting the cost of the birthday gift is too much for you. Then reiter-ate firmly that doing this is against company policy and could cost you your job. It’s the truth. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Live in the moment. Strive to be and do your best. Don’t let a challenge or opposition spin you in a negative direction. Believe in yourself and your capabilities. Discuss your personal plans and call in a favor that will help you advance. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Consider what you already know and you will make a wise choice regard-ing what you need to sign up for in order to make the most of the upcoming year. Set goals you feel passion-ate about achieving but that are also reasonable. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let uncertainty be your downfall. Too many options will lead to confusion. Narrow down your choices based on what you feel comfortable pursuing. Don’t take an unnecessary risk. Harness your skills and focus on what you can accomplish. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ve got plenty of room to maneuver, so don’t hold back. Follow through with your plans and make sure to reach for the stars. Speak openly with people about your ideas and you will receive the support you require to get started. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t sit still when there is so much to do. Partnerships must be nur-tured, and if that means a face-to-face talk, be accom-modating. Consider how people perceive you and make changes to your image that will make you more engaging. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Listen to someone talking about past experi-ences. Ask questions and apply the information you receive to something you are trying to accomplish in your life. What you learn now you can apply to what you want to accomplish this year. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll have to juggle a lot if you want to avoid trouble. Gauge your time and focus on what’s impor-tant to the people you are dealing with. Fairness will play an important role in the outcome of anything you begin today. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Sign up for anything that interests you. This is a learning year and it’s best to start gathering information right from the beginning. Greater creativ-ity coupled with discipline, hard work and network-ing will pay off in the end. Focus on originality and technology. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Take a step back and reflect on what trans-pired last year. You may have to make some per-sonal adjustments before you can begin to make changes to your personal lifestyle and wellness. Size up your situation and estimate your needs and overhead. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Go over ventures and endeavors you want to pursue this year and lay out your game plan. A bud-get must be put in place that will help you oversee the possibilities allowing you to work within your means. Success is in the stars. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Expect to face set-backs and opposition. Not everyone will be willing to be as impulsive as you. Concentrate on your home and domestic life and how you can improve your situ-ation without going over budget. Creative ideas will win praise. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Greater involvement in an organization that is helping others or fighting for a cause will lead to a contract or opportunity that will bring in more cash. Don’t let an emotion-al or ego problem stand in the way of your success. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
