It was determined that Abbot had a fugitive arrest By BRENDAN FARRINGTONAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Long voting lines in November that again put Florida under national scrutiny could be eased in future elections if lawmakers restore the early voting days they cut and stop putting so many long con-stitutional amendment proposals on the ballot, a Senate committee heard Monday. A panel of nine election supervisors representing counties around the state told the com-mittee that they should have the flexibility to hold at least eight and up to 14 days of early voting, and be allowed more flexibility in choosing early voting sites. They also said the 11 long questions the Republicandominated Legislature jammed onto the ballot increased voting time and required more time to scan the multi-paged ballots. A shorter ballot reduces voting times and election costs. We must not just look at the number of words but the number of amend-ments, Duval County elections supervisor Jerry Holland said. Columbia County Supervisor of Elections Liz Horne, though not at the hearing, agreed bal-lot measures have become too bloated. I feel that it gets too wordy and people dont read it, she said. I think it would save time at the polls. As for extending early voting, Horne said she would welcome the extra early voting days if local supervisors could choose the times that the polls are open.

AUSTIN, Texas L ance Armstrong stopped at his Livestrong Foundation before heading to an interview with Oprah Winfrey on Monday and delivered an emotional apology to staff members, some of whom broke down in tears, a person with direct knowledge of the meeting told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussion was private.

The person said the disgraced cyclist choked up and several employees cried during the session. The person also said Armstrong apologized for letting the staff down and putting Livestrong at risk but he did not make a direct confession to the group about using banned drugs. He said he would try to restore the foundations reputation, and urged the group to continue fighting for the charitys mission of helping can cer patients and their families.

AROUND FLORIDA Jacksonville port funding endorsed JACKSONVILLE Gov. Rick Scott says hell ask the Florida Legislature to appropriate $36 million for Jacksonville port improve ments expected to create 3,500 jobs. In Jacksonville Monday, Scott said Florida can no longer wait for the federal government to fund the project because the state needs jobs now. Congress has not yet acted on legislation that includes port money. The Jacksonville port and Army Corps of Engineers would add $2 million to the project. It is designed to fix navigational problems in the St. Johns River. Strong currents now cre ate potential safety issues for large cargo ships and cause delays as they wait for high tides to subside before entering or leaving the port. Scott similarly commit ted $77 million in state funding to a project for Miamis port in 2011. Kosher meals in jails to resume WEST PALM BEACH Jewish inmates in Florida who have gone more than five years without kosher meals will again be served food in line with their religious beliefs, the state said Monday. Though no timeline was given for the rollout of kosher meals across state prisons, those who fought for the change heralded the news. It means that Jewish inmates who are sincere in observing their faith can finally do so, said Rabbi Menachem Katz of the Aleph Institute, a Jewish organization that fought for the kosher meals. When the Corrections Department ended its Jewish Dietary Accommodation Program in August 2007, it cited both cost and fairness as issues, saying it would be impossible to satisfy the preferences of the 100 faiths represented among inmates. 1 dead, 2 injured in shootings ARCHER Authorities say one person is dead and two others injured follow ing a pair of shootings in rural Alachua County. News reports said a man was found dead in the woods about 10 p.m. Sunday, about two hours after deputies had been called to the scene of another shooting. Alachua County Sheriffs spokesman Todd Kelly says the man is a suspect in the earlier shooting. Deputies found two people had been shot in the rural neighborhood following the initial 911 call. A man had been shot in the abdomen and a woman was shot in the left arm and the bullet then went into her abdomen. There were six people at the house. The identities of the shooting victims have not been released. Man found dead in hotel hot tub JACKSONVILLE Authorities say a man apparently drowned in a Jacksonville hotels hot tub. The Jacksonville Sheriffs Office says offi cers were called to the La Quinta Inn & Suites just after 7 p.m. Sunday after a man in his 20s was found face down in the hot tub.

worked 15-hour days dur ing the past election, and those long hours would be common for smaller coun ties with smaller staffs. The Legislature loaded up the ballot with antiabortion, pro-church, taxcut and anti-Obamacare questions designed to bring out conservative voters. And they took advantage of an exemption that allows the questions to exceed the 75-word limit imposed on citizens groups that petition to have questions placed on the ballot. Counties that had never previously had multipage ballots used them in the last election, while the ballot in Miami-Dade coun ty was 12 pages long. Not that voting was a problem everywhere. Several of the supervisors said early voting and elec tion day lines were mostly reasonable. Others report ed that lines that were rou tinely between two and six hours long. And not that it was just the Legislatures fault for slashing early vot ing days from 14 to eight and cramming proposed amendments on the bal lot. Miami-Dade supervi sor Penelope Townsley acknowledged that she could have planned for more early voting polling places, but didnt anticipate the need. Were not here to place blame on supervisors or the Legislature for what may have happened, said Senate Ethics and Elections Committee chairman Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater. My personal opinion is theres enough blame to go around. The goal, though, is to make sure Florida isnt once again mocked for its elections. We need to change the image that Florida has nationwide and world wide that we cant get our elections done on time, said Sen. Eleanor Sobel, a Hollywood Democrat and the committees vice chair. Supervisors said the Legislature should be kept to a 75-word ballot sum mary. They also want flex ibility in choosing where to hold early voting.

Alisha Coe, a lawyer representing Earthjustice, provided the environmen talists point of view. She spoke about how the rules were created and how state government did not put those rules into effect. She said that there had to be a push effect, which was the legal action taken by environmental groups such as Earthjustice. What the two presenta tions agreed on was that there needs to be speed limits on pollution levels for Florida waterways. What they agreed on was that the fight to clean up pollution and keep the waterways pollution free isnt anywhere close to being done. Also, FLOW approved Sniffen & Spellman as the law firm to represent the group when there is a need for representation.

Deputy Brain Lucas on patroling Sunday in the area of Double Run Road when he noticed a black vehicle parked out side of 317 NE Double Run Road. After he found no one inside the vehicle, Lucas said he smelled an odor of chemical in the area coming from the residence. Through my experi ence and training, the odor smelled like it was a meth amphetamine lab ... he wrote in the arrest report. Walking toward the resi dence, he saw several peo ple run into a camper, the report said. Lucas made contact with a man and asked if he could look around the property. The man said he could, and walked the property with Lucas. While walking around the property Lucas came into contact with Roberts near a campfire. Lucas noted that in the fire were burnt blister packets. Usually when people burn blister packets, they are burning Sudafed blister packs to destroy evidence, one of the key ingredients in manufacturing metham phetamine, Lucas wrote. When the two men arrived at the camper, it was padlocked. The man pulled keys from his pocket and unlocked it. Doles and Parker were hiding inside the camper, according to the arrest report. Lucas noticed a clear plastic bottle with white resi due inside. He recognized the bottle to be used in the manufacture of metham phetamine, according to the arrest report. After detaining Doles and Parker, Lucas wrote, Doles said he was not doing any thing in the camper, but that he was smoking mari juana and didnt want to be caught. Parker said they were cooking methamphetamine in the camper, but she hadnt been in the camper long. The man Lucas met walk ing around the property said he had been inside the house with his mother all day. Lucas then spoke with Roberts, who said that what ever was happening inside the camper he had nothing to do with. A woman then came out of the home and was told there was a meth lab on her property. She became angry and said that it should not be there, according to the arrest report. The deputy asked her if her son had been inside with her all night, and she said he had, according to the arrest report. After searching police databases, it was discovered that Doles and Roberts had bought Claritin D that day. Claritin D is a key ingredi ent in the manufacture of methamphetamine. Deputies then arrested Robert, Doles and Parker and transported them to Columbia County Detention facility in lieu of $56,000. The Columbia County Multi Jurisdictional Task Force helped the Patrol Division of the Sheriffs Office collect the hazardous materials from the scene. The MJTF is comprised of detectives from the Sheriffs Office, Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the US Drug Enforcement Administration.
4AOPINION OPINION Tuesday, January 15, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A D uring an interview with public radio host Terry Gross, Quentin Tarantino sug-gested that his new film about American slavery, Django Unchained, is in the tradition of the spa-ghetti western, with a mix of stylized humor and the fantastic feats of a blax-ploitation superhero. While all that is perhaps true, Tarantino uniquely captured the essence of the peculiar institution. He may have engaged in historical revisionism, but he made a bold state-ment about a moral stain that Americans, white and black, cannot easily discuss and lack the moral gumption to reconcile. Many prominent blacks, most notably writer/director Spike Lee, hate Django and are boycot-ting it. Speaking with Gross, Tarantino explained how westerns from different decades reflect the con-cerns of their times: One of the things thats inter-esting about westerns in particular is (that) theres no other genre that reflects the decade that they were made or the morals and the feelings of Americans during that decade (more) than west-erns. Westerns are always a magnifying glass as far as thats concerned. The westerns of the 50s definitely have an Eisenhower, birth-ofsuburbia-and-plentifultimes aspect to them. America started, little by little, catching up with its racist past by the 50s, at the very, very beginning of (that decade), and that started being reflected in westerns. Consequently, the late 60s have a very Vietnam vibe to the westerns, leading into the 70s. And by the mid 70s, you know, most of the westerns literally could be called Watergate westerns, because it was about disillusionment and tearing down the myths that we have spent so much time building up. Assuming that Tarantino is correct, which of our current morals and feelings has he put under a magni-fying glass in Django? This is the era of Barack Obama, Americas first black president. His presidency has affected white peoples thinking on race, but it has affected blacks even more pro-foundly. Obamas ascen-dency has forced most black people to become more self-conscious, per-haps more introspective about a host of complex intra-racial issues that circumscribed our enlight-enment and upward mobility or stopped them altogether. Many complex problems in contemporary black culture are played out in Django. The most obvious is the conflict between the Uncle Tom and the authentic black, represented by the Samuel L. Jackson character, Stephen, and the Jamie Foxx character, Django, our hero who becomes a freed man. Unlike Stephen whose only power derives from being loyal to his white slave master Django owns himself and becomes more powerful after striking out on his own. Blacks continue to play the films game of whos the Uncle Tom and whos the authentic African-American, whos worthy and whos unworthy. Remember that when Obama was beginning his first run for the White House, he was accused of not being black enough, someone who, if elected, would not place high prior-ity on black problems. The film also describes the issue of class and status among blacks, mani-fested in the differences between house slaves and field slaves. Django himself, riding a horse, wearing white mans attire and speaking near-proper English, brings it all into sharp relief. Most blacks immediately recognize the endur-ing problem of colorism in Django: black-on-black discrimination based on the lightness or dark-ness of ones complexion. Colorism became a deep-rooted reality with the first generation of slaves, after white masters had sexual relations with black female chattel to produce a class of mulattoes who lived and worked in the Big House. These fairer-skinned slaves became a distinct group, the genesis of todays black middle class. You see class distinction everywhere in Django. Of course, Broomhilda, the heros wife and the source of his quest, is the fair-skinned and attrac-tive Kerry Washington. Tarantino knows that a dark-skinned Broomhilda wont elicit as much sym-pathy. Our light-skinned Broomhilda even speaks German. And then there is Stephen, the loyal servant of the plantation master. He is as black as coal, both in character and skin color. He is the epitome of evil, more terrifying than his white master, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Tarantino has produced a haunting piece of entertainment. One of his subtexts puts a magnify-ing glass to contemporary black culture, and a lot of us dont like it.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman T he Florida Constitution enshrines all manner of rights not found in its federal counterpart. For better or worse, we regulate smoking in the workplace, marine net fishing and more. Theres even a provision that limits cruel and inhumane confinement of pigs during pregnancy. The question isnt whether these are worthy concerns, but whether they merit more than mere statutory attention. Toward that end, voters in 2006 made it harder to alter our state constitition, requiring a 60 percent superma-jority to approve new amendments. Since then weve been spared numerous inanities, including a few placed on last falls ballot by the Florida Legislature. We may soon have another one to deal with. State Sen. Joe Abruzzo (D-Royal Palm Beach) on Wednesday proposed a consti-tutional amendment requiring that by 2015 Florida teachers be paid at least as much as their counterparts in other states. Senate Joint Resolution 198, should it make it out of the legislature and ultimately win approval by voters, would require that teacher salaries be at least equal to the national aver-age, depending on levels of experience. Pay raises that resulted from the amendment would be covered by the state, not the local district. And there would be raises.According to the National Education Association, Florida ranked 45th in teacher salaries in 2010-11, paying educators an aver-age of $45,732, compared to $55,623 nationally. Here in Columbia County, teachers made an average of $41,085 in 2010-11, according to the state department of education. The question, though, isnt whether Florida educators are underpaid, but whether their paychecks merit constitutional protection. We think not.If lawmakers really want to give teachers a raise, let them pass the appropriate legislation. Otherwise leave responsibility for teacher salaries where it belongs, with local school boards. Meanwhile, lets quit monkeying around with the constitution. As a member of the Florida House, Abruzzo filed a nearly identical proposal in 2009. Mercifully, it died three months later in committee. Lets wish this one the same fate.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.orgT he commentators wait-ing for President Barack Obama to take the White House podium made much of this being the last press conference of his first term, implying that it could be almost a valedictory look back over the past four years. Fortunately, considering the tasks before him, Obama was anything but reflective. He moved quickly and almost combatively to seize the high ground in the coming debate over raising the debt limit, currently $16.4 billion, on how much Uncle Sam can borrow. The debt ceiling, which the country is expected to reach by early March, is the first of three econom-ic hurdles Obama faces this spring. It is also the most important. If the ceiling is not raised, the U.S. government goes into techni-cal default, meaning government employees from the Marines to meat inspectors do not get paid and foreign governments forgo the interest on U.S. debt they pur-chased in good faith. GOP Tea Party-movement followers in the House broke with the leadership last year to force a near-default. Although no bills went unpaid, this resulted in an inter-national downgrade in Americas credit rating. Not this time, said Obama: The full faith and credit of the United States of America is not a bargain-ing chip. And they -the House Republican hard-liners -better decide quickly, because time is run-ning short. In short order after that, Obama and Congress must deal with an automatic, across-the-board slash of more than $1 billion in govern-ment spending. The dramatic meat-ax approach was an unsuccessful attempt to galvanize lawmakers into attacking the deficit problem. The deficit is still there and were still stuck with the automatic cuts. Congress then must pass a spending bill to keep the govern-ment running after the temporary spending measure enacted last fall expires, again risking a government shutdown and another economic setback. The debt ceiling is the most immediate and pressing issue and the one on which the president was most forceful. Tea Partiers demand federal spending cuts that match the debt-ceiling increase dollar for dollar. But Obama countered that there would be no ransom for trashing the American economy. There is pressure on Obama to bypass Congress and unilaterally raise the debt ceiling, under the constitutional provision that says the validity of the public debt for paying our bills shall not be ques-tioned. The president has said that he wont do this, but he seemed to open the door at his press confer-ence if Congress balks. It could be a good year, Obama said, if only politics dont get in the way. Its a variation of an old Washington expression about unre-alistic hopes: If we had some ham, we could have ham, and eggs if we had some eggs.

Over the years, Piedmont City Schools has not offered student transpor tation. Instead of riding traditional buses to and from school each day, youngsters have walked or been driven by family members or neighbors. Its just never been done, said Piedmont City Schools Superintendent Matt Akin. While the city runs no buses for its students, two county systems deliver to Piedmont students who live on the outskirts of the community. Calhoun County runs two buses to and from Vigo, while Cleburne County runs a bus to and from Borden Springs, Akin said. Five yars ago Piedmont examined the possibility of providing transporta tion. Akin said the initial expenses associated with establishing an in-house busing program is too expensive for the small system. School system has no buses

By JOHN PYEAssociated PressMELBOURNE, Australia Novak Djokovic had a big, adoring crowd at Rod Laver Arena, and he knew exactly how to work it. Writing Aussie, Aussie, Aussie on a live TV camera lens with a felt-tip pen was the perfect way to sign off after his 15th consecutive win at the Australian Open. Having the confidence to charm a crowd of thou-sands comes with experi-ence he has won the last two Australian titles and is aiming to be the first man in the Open era to win three in succession. Hello, everybody, its great to be back, he said after his 6-2, 6-4, 7-5 win over Paul-Henri Mathieu of France, his first match at Melbourne Park since his epic five-set win over Rafael Nadal in last years final. David Ferrer had only a couple of hundred people watching in cavernous Hisense Arena on Day One at Melbourne Park. He opened with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 victory over Olivier Rochus of Belgium. The four majors in 2012 were shared by Djokovic, Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray. With Nadal out, the so called Big 4 has become the Big 3, with nobody else in the top 10 given a realistic chance. Djokovic doesnt have another Grand Slam win-ner in his half of the draw after his Serbian Davis Cup teammate Janko Tipsarevic ousted Australian veteran Lleyton Hewitt, a former U.S. Open and Wimbledon winner, in a night match. Fifth-seeded Tomas Berdych beat American Michael Russell 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 in his opening match. Four American men advanced, led by No. 20 Sam Querrey. Querry beat Daniel Munoz-de la Nava of Spain 6-7 (2), 6-4, 6-2, 6-4. Brian Baker fended off Russias Alex Bogomolov Jr. 7-6 (4), 6-3, 6-7 (0), 3-6, 6-2; Tim Smyczek beat Croatias Ivo Karlovic 6-4, 7-6 (5), 7-5; and Ryan Harrison beat Santiago Giraldo of Colombia 2-6, 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 and will face Djokovic.

DEAR ABBY: Recently my husband, Byron, and I had an argument, and he took off in his truck. He didnt return until after work the following day. He had he spent the night at our friend Arlenes house. She is divorced and lives alone. Byron assures me nothing happened between them. I want to believe him, but ever since this incident, Arlene will not look me in the eye or speak to me. -BROKEN-HEARTED IN WYOMING DEAR BROKENHEARTED: He chose to go to her home (even drunk as a skunk) because he knew he would be wel-comed. Its also the reason Arlene cant look you in the eye. Marriage counsel-ing for you and Byron may help you put this to rest. If he refuses to go with you, go without him. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have always been touched by the acts of kindness stories in your column. When I was 20, I went into New York City to attend classes. Upon my arrival, I was mugged in the bus station. After the mugger ran off, I picked up the few belongings that had fallen out of my handbag, walked across the street and down the stairs to the subway. It was then I realized I had no money to buy a token. I started crying and couldnt stop. A middle-aged woman with a friendly smile arrived and stayed at my side until the authorities arrived. Before she left, she slipped some money into my pocket. After Sept. 11, I heard people say how surprised they were that New Yorkers came together. Not me, Abby. I have known since the day I was mugged that there are only a few bad apples in the Big Apple. I hope my good Samaritan will see your column and realize what her compassion and generosity meant to me that day and ever since. -STILL COMMUTING IN NYC DEAR STILL COMMUTING: Thanks for an upper of a letter, which proves that kindhearted-ness is universal -and not limited to any one area of the map. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Please help me and thousands of other payroll administra-tors with a public service message. I will be send-ing out W-2s this month to current and former employees. Last year, I got back about 10 percent of these W-2s because employees have moved and left no forwarding addresses. Often the phone has also been dis-connected. Please remind anyone who has changed jobs and moved in the past year to make sure their former employer has their new address so their W-2 will arrive on the first try. I have a stack of these forms that have never been claimed by former employ-ees and no idea how to contact them. -PAYROLL ADMINISTRATOR, FORT PAYNE, ALA. DEAR ADMINISTRATOR: Im pleased to pass along your message. The W-2 is proof the government needs to verify what someone has been paid and what has been withheld by the employer. Employers are required to provide one. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Research and patience will help you avoid a mis-take. Dont aggravate a sit-uation you cannot change. Time is on your side, so wait and see what happens. Moderation will be key to getting through challenges unscathed. Offer hands-on help for a fair trade. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can get ahead if you are confident in your actions. An emotional change will lead you down a different path. Enjoy the journey and embrace the encounters you have with others. Travel and commu-nication will result in new beginnings. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Expect a change of plans. Choose a path that suits your needs if you arent happy with the way things are head-ing. Someone from your past will make a different impression on you now. Display your intentions. ++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Dont fear being unique. Taking the road less traveled will attract positive attention. A rela-tionship that needs TLC should be reassessed and dealt with accordingly. Expanding your interests will also bring about a change of heart. Love is highlighted. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Reestablish your position with your peers, friends or family. The pecking order may have to change if you are going to achieve your goals. A serious approach to getting things done will help you gain confidence and respect. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A networking event will provide you with plenty to think about or to strive to acquire. Dont feel you have to make an impulsive move to get what you want. Go over contracts carefully and make whatever changes you feel necessary to meet your needs. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Venture out and dis-cover whats available that motivates you to make changes to enhance your lifestyle. Taking on too many responsibilities will weigh you down, causing an inability to accomplish. Clear your head and del-egate chores you cannot do. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Jump in and be a par-ticipant. Your ability to find solutions and to be in tune to the people around you will help you get ahead and command a position of leadership. Love and romance will bring about unique lifestyle changes. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Being upfront and honest about the way you think and feel may be difficult, but it will also be necessary if you want to avoid problems. Put what isnt making you happy behind you so that you can move forward positively. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Question the motives of those you deal with before you jump in and take part in something that may not be to your benefit. Call the shots and set the standards you want to live by, and you will feel comfortable about moving forward. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Gauge what you should do by how others respond. You mustnt let anyone take advantage of your curiosity or friendly demeanor. Stick close to home and to those you know you can trust. A change in the way you live will improve your future. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Help people you need to in your life to ensure you reach your goals. Cooperation and collabo-ration should go hand-in-hand. Strive to reach finan-cial security by sticking to your budget and concen-trating on the best way to make money. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

AFC, NFC title games set By EDDIE PELLS Associated Press One game is a rematch. The other might feel like one at least to one of the teams. For the second straight year in the AFC, the New England Patriots will host the Baltimore Ravens with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. In the NFC, it will be San Francisco traveling to Atlanta, with the Falcons defense trying to stop a versatile, running quarter back for the second straight week. On Sunday, the Falcons barely got past the Seattle Seahawks, who overcame a 20-point deficit to take a one-point lead, but gave it up after Matt Ryan drove Atlanta into field goal range and Matt Bryant made a 49-yard kick with 8 seconds left. Atlanta is the only team not making a repeat appear ance in the NFLs final four. Last year, it was the Giants playing, and beating, the 49ers for the NFC title. On Saturday, Kaepernick passed for 263 yards and rushed for 181 a playoff record for a quarterback to defeat Green Bay 45-31. Though the Niners must travel cross country for the game, they opened as 3-point favorites. Justin Tucker hit a 47-yard field goal against Denver on Saturday to lift the Ravens to a 38-35 win in double overtime, extend ing Ray Lewis career for at least one more week and putting the 17-year veteran one win away from his sec ond Super Bowl. Lewis and the Ravens will have to stop the NFLs most potent offense. The Patriots put up 457 yards in a 41-28 victory over Houston, which left them one win away from their sixth Super Bowl in the 2000s. I think the two best teams are in the final, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said. The Patriots were made early 9 1 2 -point favorites.
