By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comF ormer U.S. Marine Mac McQuown has pulled a cart with 50 pounds of supplies from Virginia to New York City, and then down to Tallahassee in his quest to bring awareness back to vet-erans. His plan is to walk to every state capital in a 15,000 mile trip. Along the way, he said he will and help raise money for veterans who are homless or disabled. In about a year, he said hes raised roughly $6,000. The 51-year-old veteran said he figures the journey will take around six more years to complete, and that he started last year in Virginia, his home state. Hes made it as far north as New York City, but didnt quite make it to the capital of New York Albany, but that he plans on visiting that capital city on his way through New England. I had to turn south, he said. Winter was coming in. The capitals he says he has been able to reach are: Richmond, Annapolis, Trenton, Columbia, Raleigh and Tallahassee. McQuown said he only takes time off from his walk around the holidays. He reached Tallahassee around Christmastime and called his sister in Ocala. She picked him up in Floridas capi-tal in her car. McQuown said the progress is steady, about 15 miles a day, and that his training as a Marine prepared him for the long days of gutting it out on the road. I never take a ride, he said. Its all foot. McQuown started to walk to the nearest capital from Ocala. His next stop will be Atlanta. On Jan. 7, he started to walk once again, pulling a cart loaded with 50 pounds of supplies. On Monday, McQuown made it to Lake City, and before he left Tuesday, he met with Mayor Stephen Witt to talk about the plight of homeless veterans. McQuown said everybody asks him how hes going to walk to Hawaii. What he plans on doing is to board a cruise ship and walk around the deck. He knows that he wont be able to match the speed of the ship, but its the best I can do. He has a similar plan for the trip to Alaskas capital city Juneau. McQuown has a Facebook page, facebook.com/macmc-quownwalking, and a website, www.operationwalkamerica.org, where people can track his progress and learn more about his travels on the road. According to operationwalkamerica.org, McQuown has recentlyjoined forces with the Silver Star families of America. The Silver Star Families of America, according to the site, is a non profit public charity committed to supporting the United States combat wounded, ill, injured and dying military members and Veterans from all wars, past and present, and hon-oring their sacrifice with Silver Star Service Banners. The SSFOA is now accepting donations for Operation Walk America. These donations will be used to assist Walk America and for general operating expenses for providing services to our wounded, ill, injured and dying, including homeless vet-erans.

AROUND FLORIDA Developer to face campaign charges PENSACOLA A Panhandle developer was charged Tuesday with breaking federal campaign finance laws by reimburs ing numerous people who made the maximum legal donation of $2,300 to a presidential candidate he supported. Jay Odom, 56, surren dered to federal authorities in Pensacola on Tuesday. The U.S. Attorneys Office for Floridas Northern District said Odom would plead not guilty to charges that in 2007 he circum vented federal campaign contribution limits. The indictment alleges Odom reimbursed some people who made contribu tions of $2,300 to a presi dential candidate, but does not mention the specific candidate. Federal records show that Odom and his wife made contributions in late 2007 to former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee. Prosecutors say the illegal campaign contri butions came to more than $10,000. Odom is a longtime and major commercial and residential developer in locations throughout the Panhandle. In 2011, state pros ecutors dropped charges against Odom and former Republican House Speaker Ray Sansom. Sansom had been accused of schem ing to get $6 million in the state budget to build a han gar at the Destin airport that would have benefited Odom, a major Republican donor.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Laurie Lauria has given the Flagler County School District enough money to cover the costs of keeping a deputy at Old Kings Elementary School for two months. And Superintendent Janet Valentine says Lauria has agreed to cover the costs through the end of the year. There are six resource deputies at the countys high school and middle schools. Officials have con sidered putting deputies at two elementary schools, but say the costs are pro hibitive. Flagler Sheriff Jim Manfre says he appreci ates Laurias concern, but asking a parent to pay for security is a Band-Aid solution. Teen wounded on basketball court ORLANDO Authorities say a teenager may be paralyzed after he was shot by another teen while playing basketball at a park in Orlando.

By CURT ANDERSON AP Legal Affairs Writer MIAMI The caretaker of foster child Rilya Wilson grew to hate the 4-year-old because of defiant behavior, finally smothering the girl with a pillow in 2000 and covering up the slaying with a web of lies, a Florida pros ecutor told a jury Tuesday. Assistant State Attorney Joshua Weintraub said in closing arguments that the law permits the jury to find 67-year-old Geralyn Graham guilty of first-degree murder even though Rilyas body was never found. Graham, who insists she is innocent, faces life in prison if con victed. Evidence and testimo ny during the eight-week trial showed that Graham abused Rilya, even confin ing the girl in a dog cage or keeping her hidden in a laundry room for hours, Weintraub said. It was all because Rilya wouldnt do exactly as Graham ordered, the prosecutor said. It happened because of this womans frustration and hatred of Rilya, Weintraub said. This woman hated Rilya Wilson for a variety of reasons. Defense attorney Michael Matters, however, said there was little testimony about hatred or maliciousness toward Rilya on the part of Graham. Jurors ought to focus on what evidence the state did not have, he said. Lack of physical evi dence. Lack of a body. Lack of any physical discovery of remains. Lack of a motive for killing her, Matters said. You should use your common sense. Matters added that investigators should have focused on whether state child welfare workers might have sold Rilya to a family, possibly in another country, rather than zeroing in on a possible murder. There has not been any reliable or credible proof that Rilya is dead, Matters said. Jurors are likely to begin deliberations Wednesday, after the defense finishes its closing arguments and prosecutors have a chance at rebuttal argument. Rilyas disappearance went unnoticed by the state Department of Children and Families for about 15 months, largely because a caseworker failed to check on the girl in person. The shocking discovery that she had disappeared led to a shake-up at the agency, including high-level res ignations, and passage of reforms including better tracking of foster children. The states case rests heavily on the testimony of three jailhouse informants who claim that Graham implicated herself behind bars when she was in jail on a fraud conviction. The star witness, career criminal Robin Lunceford, said Graham told her she smothered Rilya with a pil low in December 2000 and disposed of the body near water. Lunceford said Graham considered the child evil and referred to the girl as it. One of the last straws was Rilyas insistence on wearing a Cleopatra mask on Halloween rather than an angel costume, Lunceford testified. The defense has raised questions about Luncefords motivation, noting that she got a life prison sen tence reduced to 10 years in exchange for her testi mony. Weintraub told jurors that Graham made up a series of stories for friends who noticed Rilya was no longer at her home, including a claim that an unidentified DCF worker had taken the girl for mental tests and never returned her. At other times, she told friends Rilya was on trips to Disney World, New York or New Jersey. She also told people Rilya had severe behavioral problems, including spread ing feces around the house, trying to hurt her younger sister. Investigators had no evi dence to back up Grahams stories or the claims of Rilyas bad behavior. Lies, deceit and coverup, the prosecutor said. Its all lies to distract them from the horrible truth of what happened. Sitting in the court room Tuesday was Pamela Kendrick, who was Rilyas foster parent until DCF removed the girl in April 2000 at Grahams insistence. Weintraub said witnesses from those days remember a happy little girl who loved dolls and was doing well in preschool. Those who knew her dur ing Grahams time painted a far different picture. Rilya was ostracized. Rilya was isolated, Weintraub said. She wasnt smiling. She wasnt laughing. This was a sad little girl.

Fight led to Texas college shooting; three wounded Associated Press HOUSTON A fight between two people erupt ed in gunfire Tuesday at a Houston-area community college, catching a mainte nance man in the crossfire and leaving students and others cowering in class rooms. No one was killed, but the volley of gunshots heard just before 1 p.m. sparked fear of another campus massacre less than a month after 26 people were killed at elementary school in Newtown, Conn. The shooting hap pened outside between an academic building and the library where Luis Resendiz, 22, was study ing on the second floor. An employee called police and then herded the 30 to 40 people in the library into a small room and told them to crouch down, he said. Keisha Cohn, 27, was in a building about 50 feet away and began running as soon as she heard the shots. To stay where I was wasnt an option, said Cohn, who fled to a build ing that houses computers and study areas. All the students were eventually evacuated, running out of buildings as police officers led them to safety. Authorities offered no details on what led to the fight. One of the people involved had a student ID, and both people were wounded and hospitalized, Harris County Sheriffs Maj. Armando Tello said. A fourth person also was taken to a hospital for a medical condition, he said. Mark Zaragosa said he had just come out of an EMT class when he saw two people who were injured and stopped to help them.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman W ith an unem-ployment rate just under 10 percent for vet-erans returning from tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, finding a job for those who have served their coun-try has proved to be a challenge. In pledging to hire 100,000 veter-ans over the next five years, Wal-Mart, the nations largest retailer, has set an example of honoring the sacrifices of the nations men and women in uniform that other corporations should follow. Few gestures say welcome home more profoundly than the security of a job. Scheduled to begin on Memorial Day, the Wal-Mart jobs program will be open to any veteran who has been honorably discharged within 12 months of the end of their active duty service. The jobs program is a commendable business decision and a recogni-tion veterans make dependable employees. Wal-Mart has suffered from several public relations fiascoes in recent months a brewing bribery scandal in Mexico, claims of sexual discrimination by 2,000 female employees and an embar-rassing snub of Vice President Joe Bidens gun violence task force. The companys jobs program for veterans may not completely reha-bilitate Wal-Marts image. But its a good first step.

This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman O n Monday, Americas TV cam-eras, smart-phones, tablets and naked eyeballs witnessed the first inau-guration of President Barack Obama the real Obama. We saw and heard for the first time, really the real pro-America progressive that Obama apparently always wanted to be. We heard a politi-cal leader making clear his determination to be a bold, transformational, progressive successor to that transitional fellow who succeeded George W. Bush. Nobody who heard Mondays inaugural address could have con-fused the two Obamas. Back on Jan. 20, 2009, the most profound contri-bution that Americas 44th president would make to our nations history was conveyed at a glance. We witnessed something most of us thought wed never live to see: a duly elected African-American presi-dent. Yet he was fated from Day One to clean up three disastrous messes hed inherited: two tragi-cally mismanaged wars and a near-catastrophic recession. No wonder that, even before he sat down at his new desk, Obama was speaking at his 2009 inauguration as if someone somehow had already painted him into a corner of an Oval Office. The closest he came to a clarion call four years ago had nothing to do with bold initiatives, just lets-get-along post-parti-sanship: On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our politics. ... But in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. But after four years of childish things, the presi-dent was Washington-wiser (see also: wearier). He had watched the fis-cal cliff follies played out in the congressional sand-box. So, he used his inau-gural address to signal a bold agenda shift. Obama II has no intention of pursuing, or even paying lip service to, the go-along, get-along priori-ties of Obama I. Not even on deficit reduction. We must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit, he said Monday. But we reject the belief that America must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. This time, Obama boldly championed action to reduce human-induced climate change. He pointedly stuck it to con-servative naysayers who reject the overwhelming judgment of science. And he warned that failure to act would betray our children and future gen-erations. Mainly, Obama II will be remembered because his inaugural address went where none of his predecessors had dared to go before, not even Obama I. He championed full and equal rights for gays and lesbians, equat-ing their fight to civil-rights battles we were also honoring that day, the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, Obama said. For if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. Obama forthrightly challenged those who, after the slaughter of schoolchildren at Newtown, Conn., are falling back upon an illogical interpretation of the Second Amendment to oppose meaningful assault-weapon safe-guards. Being true to our founding documents does not require us to agree on every contour of life, he said. ... Progress does not compel us to settle centuries-long debates about the role of govern-ment for all time, but it does require us to act in our time. ... We cannot afford delay. Standing there on the U.S. Capitol steps, Obama looked out over the heads of Washingtons elected players of those child-ish games. He implored Americas private citizens to lead their leaders. You and I, as citizens, have the power to set this countrys course, said Barack Obama II. You and I, as citizens, have the obligation to shape the debates of our time not only with the votes we cast, but with the voices we lift in defense of our most ancient values and enduring ideals.

For once, common political sense may trump strict ideological adherence. They are offering to give up their opposition to raising the debt limit without substantial deficit reduction for the short term, if the Democratic-led Senate will adopt a budget in the next three months. The Senate majority not com-pletely innocent in the fiscal horror show that has dominated Capitol Hill the past four years would be wise to now do its part. The White House indicates that President Barack Obama will accept that deal. There is, as always, a hitch. If by mid-April the upper chamber hasnt formed a budget, members pay would be suspended. Whether the august solons of the deliberative body will buy into this is anyones guess. Having watched the she-nanigans on the Hill up close for 50 years, I wouldnt wager much on their acquiescence to this sort of extortion. On the other hand, reopening the all-out warfare about the debt ceiling would be a disaster that no one survives. My guess is they will work out a solution. If not, little else will go forward including the Republican Party itself, which has borne the brunt of criticism for perpetual gridlock on national problems involving the economy, immigration and gun control. One can only hope that this debtceiling offer is the first step toward restoring sanity to the Republican base that it ultimately leads the party out of the political wilderness and back toward the center without costing it its basic identity and dif-ferences. That may be just wishful conjecture, but it has been evident for some time that the GOP is fac-ing an uncertain future without accommodations to a rapidly chang-ing electorate. Its absolutism on key issues such as taxes and social issues have narrowed its appeal dramatically. Ask Mitt Romney, who lost most of the elements of an increasingly diverse demographic. Being a party principally dominated by white males who are still living in the last century is a recipe for extinction. At the same time, the party can hold onto reasonable differences and lead the way toward sensible compromise. Whether the debt-ceiling offer can begin that process will depend on the GOP leadership and that hasnt been terribly effective recent-ly. House Speaker John Boehner ultimately had to acquiesce to his Senate counterpart, Republican leader Mitch McConnell, to at least temporarily keep the nation from tumbling into the foolish economic abyss designed to scare everybody into some form of detente. In this latest caper, the result of some GOP soul-searching at a retreat in Williamsburg, Va., Boehner had to set aside his own rule never to raise the debt limit without a dol-lar-for-dollar match in debt reduc-tion. Speculation is that the Ohio congressman has only a short time to prevent self-immolation, perhaps from one of the many cigarettes he still smokes. That also goes for Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid. The odds may be short that the Nevadan with the shoot-from-the-hip style of leadership can keep a civil tongue long enough to prevent the whole effort from imploding. Obama by all rights should have something to say about that. But who knows? Unless this latest gambit works in some fashion or another, Americans will face another year of uncertainty. Dan K.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-04286Aest with former clients. The Third Circuit grievance committee is made up of attorneys and laypersons from within the seven counties of the circuit. Dukes also filed complaints against Bryan, but the Judicial Qualifications Commission, designated by the Florida Constitution as the body that investigates complaints involving sitting judges, did not find probable cause to pursue action for conduct violations against Bryan. The accusation against Decker occurred while he was a private attorney based in Live Oak. On Deckers election as a Third Circuit judge on Aug. 14, jurisdiction for the case shifted to the Judicial Qualifications Commission. Karen Kirksey, public information officer for the Bar, said Jan. 15 that public documents associated with Deckers case had been sent to the Judicial Qualifications Commission. Kirksey said possible penal-ties for such infractions really (depend) on the individual case. She would not be more specific. Brooke Kennerly, executive director of the Judicial Qualifications Commission, said she could not comment on the prob-able cause finding because the Florida Constitution provides confidential protec-tion to JQC proceedings. Until or unless formal charges are filed by the commis-sion, all pleadings and proceedings are confidential, she said. The allegations against Decker became public upon release of the finding of prob-able cause by the Florida Bars grievance committee on Dec. 17. Decker, who maintains he did not violate Bar rules, emailed the following statement to the Lake City Reporter: ... I strongly disagree with the Committees decision and note that a find-ing of probable cause is not, however, a determination that any rule was actually violated but only that further proceedings will be conducted. This matter will now be reviewed through further proceedings, and I wel-come the opportunity to participate in that process. When this matter has been properly and fully considered, I will have the opportunity for further comment at that time.A LAND DEAL GONE BADDukes, William Woodington and Bryan are members of the BWD land trust, which Decker formerly defended in a fore-closure action against TD Bank in regard to property in Bradford County. During that proceeding, Dukes and Woodington signed over their rights to the land to Bryan, who later filed to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Decker, who also represented Bryan in the bankruptcy case, then sought and received court permission to drop Dukes and Woodington as clients. According to Dukes, he and Woodington were talked into signing over to Bryan their interest in a property owned by BWD, and when Bryan filed bankruptcy they were left without their interest in the property, but still responsible for the debt. I do not believe it is right for an attorney to represent business partners who are jointly responsible for a loan of over $1 million dollars while helping one of the partners get ready to file bankruptcy because that would shift more responsibil-ity to myself and Mr. Woodington, Dukes wrote in his complaint. It was always my understanding that Mr. Decker was looking out for all of us, not just Judge Bryan. Decker said Dukes and Woodington suffered no financial harm due to his representation of Bryan in the bankruptcy proceeding. I did not do anything that left Mr. Dukes owing obligations any greater than those he owed before I commenced my repre-sentation of him, Judge Bryan and Mr. Woodington, Decker wrote in response to Dukes complaint. Under the law and the terms of the guaranty agreement that Mr. Dukes, Judge Bryan and Mr. Woodington signed, each of these three gentlemen is responsible for paying the entire debt owed to TD Bank. That was true before the commencement of my representation and that remains true today. Dukes responded to Deckers assertion that he was not financially harmed by Deckers representation. He says the filing of Judge Bryans (bankruptcy) case did nothing to shift the TD Bank loan to me, Dukes wrote in a letter to the Bar. He says I was jointly and severally liable for the entire debt from the beginning just as Judge Bryan was. Again, what everything Mr. Decker did was allow for Judge Bryan to have ownership of all of the interest in the property while I was stuck with in his words the entire debt. If he can convince you that that doesnt place Judge Bryan in a better position than it does me, then he is a very persuasive attorney. Decker said in filings with the Bar that his strategy in foreclosure cases is to offer the creditor the deed to the property in lieu of foreclosure in order to minimize fees and costs to his clients. However, title issues had to be resolved first in this case, according to Decker. One of those title issues involved a lien against Woodington, Decker said. Dukes said the lien was against Woodington, not BWD Land Trust, which owned the property. Decker, in Bar filings, said he dropped Dukes and Woodington as clients because of what he saw as a conflict between the two concerning the authenticity of Dukes signature on a promissory note taken out by Bryan, Dukes and Woodington in 2004. (See related story, this page.)BRYAN AS CLIENT, JUDGEDecker is also under scrutiny for representing clients in Bryans court, while Bryan remained his client. In documents presented to the Bar, Decker acknowledged he and another attorney in his law firm had brought cases before Bryan while still representing him, but maintains that their representation of Bryan did not result in any prejudice or harm of any kind. In one foreclosure proceeding against Wells Fargo where Decker acted as attor-ney and the case was heard by Bryan, Decker said the attorney for the bank wrote the terms of the settlement. He argued that because the bank wrote the settlement, his representation as Bryans personal attorney couldnt have been harmful to the bank in the lawsuit. Judge Bryan acted solely in a ministerial capacity to ratify what Wells Fargos counsel and I had already agreed to, Decker wrote in a letter to the Bar dated Dec. 10. MISSTEP AT FORUMDuring a televised candidate forum at Florida Gateway College the night of July 31, in response to a question about his judi-cial philosophy, Decker said he had never been accused of a conflict of interest. As a lawyer Ive never been accused of having a conflict of interest or represent-ing more than one side in a civil case, he said at the forum. The original complaint by Dukes was filed April 10, 2012 and served on Decker later that month. Clearly, I misspoke, Decker told the Lake City Reporter by email on Jan. 15. In the heat of a debate on live television, regrettably the words did not convey the sentiment I was attempting to express. That said, it has been and remains my position that there has been no violation of any conflict of interest rules. I believe that my actions as an attorney were consistent with the rules of conduct and, in fact, when this matter is fully examined it will be deter-mined that my representation benefited and protected the interests of all parties concerned including Mr. Dukes.ATTORNEY DISCIPLINE THE NUMBERSThe Florida Bar had 93,895 lawyers in fiscal year 2011-12. Figures provided by the Bar show that 7,423 files were opened on complaints during that period. Not all complaints result in a file being opened, said Kenneth L. Marvin, director of lawyer regulation for the Florida Bar. Of the 7,423 cases opened, a grievance committee found probable cause to pro-ceed with disciplinary action in 679 cases. Marvin said 380 disciplinary orders were handed down by the Florida Supreme Court, but that a disciplinary order could resolve more then one case. There are some (less than 10) cases a year, where a grievance committee finds probable cause but the accused lawyer is found not guilty, Marvin wrote in an email to the Lake City Reporter. He also said the Judicial Qualifications Commission may choose not to hear any given case. DECKER: Conduct under review by Judicial Qualifications Com missionContinued From Page 1APromissory note set events in motionBy DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comAllegations that a former clients signature may have been forged on a $235,400 promissory note in 2004 set in motion a chain of events that helped lead to the filing of a conflict-of-interest complaint against now Circuit Judge Andrew J. Decker III. As a private attorney, Decker had defended the BWD Land Trust composed of Third Circuit Judge Paul S. Bryan, Union County real estate investor Daniel A. Dukes and William Woodington, also of Union County in a foreclosure proceed-ing against TD Bank. In March 2012 Decker, while still representing BWD, filed an emergency petition on behalf of Bryan to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. He later sought and received court per-mission to drop Dukes and Woodington as clients, citing what he saw as a conflict between the two over the authenticity of Dukes sig-nature on a promissory note for $235,400 taken out by BWD in 2004. I did not want to be in a position in which I was representing these two individuals, one of whom claimed his signa-ture had been forged by the other and one of whom may have forged a signature, Decker wrote in a May 7 letter to the Florida Bar. He continued: I have known Judge Bryan for over 30 years as a member of the Third Circuit Bar and as a Judge and I knew beyond any doubt that he had not forged any instrument. ... In a Jan. 14 email to the Lake City Reporter, Bryan responded to Dukes allegation that the promissory note was forged: The promissory note spoken about has three signatures I know I signed my name; and I know I certainly did not sign any other name. The other signatures were done out of my presence; so I cannot know who signed. The note was returned to me with signatures on it. Dukes said Deckers handling of Bryans Chapter 11 filing caused him and Woodington financial harm. Dukes filed a complaint against Decker with the Florida Bar on April 10. On Dec. 14 the Third Judicial Circuit grievance committee found probable cause to pursue disciplin-ary action against Decker. Dukes filed two complaints against Bryan with the Judicial Qualifications Commission, neither of which resulted in a finding of probable cause for conduct vio-lations by the judge. The exact substance of the complaints, which are not a matter of public record, is unknown. Proceedings of the JQC are secret and have consti-tutional protection outside Florida open records law. Concerning one of the complaints, the JQC wrote Dukes that the concerns you have expressed are not allegations involving a breach of the Code of Judicial Conduct warranting further action by the Commission but are legal matters handled solely through the courts. In a second complaint, the JQC wrote Dukes that an investigation did not result in a finding of probable cause against Bryan, but said Article V, Section 12 of the Florida Constitution prohibited disclosure of any details of the investigation. On Nov. 14, 2012 a Polk County circuit judge assigned to the case signed an order authorizing the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to take possession of the promissory note for forensic testing. FDLE confirmed this is an ongoing inves-tigation. Bryan RAISES: For teachers Continued From Page 1Amer Leon County superintendent. We all know there is a direct correlation between the states education and good jobs. Scott, whose budget is due to lawmakers by Feb. 3, called on the Legislature last year to raise education funding by $1 billion, which it did. Earlier this month, the governor said he hopes lawmakers will again increase spending in the K-12 education budget. Scott had earlier announced he wants to create a program that would allow teachers, who often spend their own money on students, to get debit cards tied to the school system with which they could purchase supplies. Andy Ford, president of the Florida Education Association, the states largest teachers union, said Tuesday the union has not been in contact with the governors office over the salary propos-al and said it was early in the budget process. We just have to see what the details are, Ford said. Its not as simple as just saying you want to increase salaries. You have to provide enough funding through the (basic state school spending program) to allow school districts to do it. Scott last year pushed legislators to increase overall funding going to the states public schools but he did not mandate that the money go to teacher salaries. In the past GOP legislators have resisted calls to raise teacher salaries by saying it was the responsibility of local school boards to decide how much to pay teachers. The state has roughly 168,000 teachers.The Associated Press and the News Service of Florida contributed to this story.

By DENNIS JUNIUS Associated Press WASHINGTON More than 6 in 10 Americans now favor allowing illegal immigrants to eventually become U.S. citizens, a major increase in support driven by a turnaround in Republicans opinions after the 2012 elections. The finding, in a new Associated Press-GfK poll, comes as the Republican Party seeks to increase its meager support among Latino voters, who turned out in large numbers to helpre-elect President Barack Obama in November. Emboldened by the over whelming Hispanic backing and by shifting attitudes on immigration, Obama has made overhauling laws about who can legally live in the U.S. a centerpiece of his second-term agenda. In the coming weeks, hes expected to aggressively push for ways to create an eventual pathway to citizen ship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants already in this country. The poll results sug gest that the public over all, not just Hispanics, will back his efforts. Sixty-two percent of Americans now favor providing a way for illegal immigrants in the U.S. to become citizens, an increase from just 50 per cent in the summer of 2010, the last time the AP polled on the question. In an even earlier poll, in 2009, some 47 percent sup ported a pathway to citizen ship for illegal immigrants. Further boosting the president on the issue, Democrats have opened a 41 percent to 34 percent advantage as the party more trusted to handle immigra tion, the first time theyve held a significant edge on the matter in AP-GfK polling. In October 2010, Republicans held a slight edge over Democrats, 46 percent to 41 percent, on the question of who was more trusted on immigra tion. Much of the increase in support for a path to even tual citizenship has come among Republicans. A majority in the GOP 53 percent now favor the change. Thats up a striking 22 percentage points from 2010. Seventy-two percent of Democrats and 55 per cent of independents like the idea, similar to 2010. The findings suggest that those GOP lawmak ers weighing support for eventual legal status for illegal immigrants could be rewarded politically not just by Democrats and independents but also by some in their own party as well. This comes amid soulsearching in the party about how the GOP can broaden its support with Latinos, who backed Obama over Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, 71 percent to 27 percent, in November. Romney received less support from Latinos than Republican President George W. Bush did. But his slice was on par with candidates Bob Dole in 1996 and George H.W. Bush in 1992. Some Republicans have concluded that backing comprehensive immigra tion reform with a pathway to citizenship is becoming a political necessity. Many lawmakers remain strongly opposed, and its far from clear whether Congress will ultimately sign off on such an approach. But in the Senate, a bipartisan group of lawmakers is working to draft immigra tion legislation, and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a pos sible 2016 presidential can didate, has offered propos als that would ultimately allow illegal immigrants to attain legal status. One poll participant, Nick Nanos, 66, of Bellmore, N.Y., said that providing a way for illegal immigrants to become citizens would respect Americas history as a nation built by immi grants. We act as if our grand parents got here legally. Dont want to ask a single Indian about that, Nanos said in a follow-up inter view. I dont think that most of us can solidly come to a point where our grandparents or greatgrandparents or greatgreat-grandparents were here legally. What does that even mean? Overall, 54 percent in the poll said immigration is an important issue to them personally, a figure thats remained steady over the past couple of years. Republicans arent the only group whose views have shifted significantly. In August of 2010, just 39 percent of seniors favored a path to citizenship. Now, 55 percent do. Among those without a college degree, support has increased from 45 percent to 57 percent. And 59 percent of whites now favor a way for illegal immigrants to gain citizen ship, up from 44 percent in August 2010, and 41 per cent in September 2009. Overall, the poll found 35 percent strongly favored allowing illegal immigrants to become citizens over time, while 27 percent favored the idea some what. Just 35 percent of Americans opposed the approach, with 23 percent strongly opposed and 12 percent somewhat opposed. That compared with 48 per cent opposed in 2010 and 50 percent in 2009.

LongCreekHerbs.com 417-779-5450 Obama quickly thrust back to reality By JULIE PACE AP White House Correspondent WASHINGTON President Barack Obamas lofty ideals from his inau gural address ran smack into reality Tuesday on the first working day of his sec ond term. Twenty-four hours after Obama pledged to tackle climate change and called for gays and lesbians to be treated equally under the law, the White House struggled to back up his sweeping rhetoric with specifics, raising questions about how much political muscle hell put behind both issues. Republicans were already signaling their unhappiness with Obamas agenda. The era of liberal ism is back, said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell. If the presi dent pursues that kind of agenda, obviously its not designed to bring us together. Obama, standing before hundreds of thousands of people on the National Mall, had vowed to respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. But in the White House briefing room a day later, Obama spokesman Jay Carney said he couldnt speculate about future actions. He said that while climate change was a prior ity for the president, it is not a singular priority. On gay rights, the presi dent had declared that the nations journey is not com plete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. But Carney said the president was speaking about his personal views and would not take federal action on same-sex mar riage, which he continues to see as a state issue. Even with his last elec tion behind him, Obama has politics to weigh as he considers just how much effort hell put into pursu ing climate change legisla tion and a gay rights agen da. Both issues are backed by the presidents liberal base but opposed by many Republicans and conserva tive Democrats. Obama already is ask ing lawmakers for a lot as he starts his second term. He needs their votes to increase the nations bor rowing limit and approve billions of dollars to keep the government running. And he has pledged to pur sue stricter gun legislation and comprehensive immi gration reform quickly this year, neither of which can pass Congress without some GOP votes. For environmental groups and gay rights supporters, Obamas inau gural address provided fresh hope for progress on issues that were stumbling blocks for Obama in his first term. While the Congress passed legislation backed by Obama to reduce car bon emissions from vehi cles, his efforts to pass a cap-and-trade bill failed on Capitol Hill due to bipartisan opposition. And despite Obamas many actions to bolster gay rights in his first term including repealing the militarys ban on openly gay service members his reluctance to back gay marriage frustrated many of his liberal supporters until he ultimately voiced his support for same-sex unions last year. Supporters of both issues say Obama will quickly have opportunities to demonstrate his com mitment to their causes in his second term. The Supreme Court will soon take up Proposition 8, a Californias ban on same-sex marriage, a case that could give the jus tices the chance to rule on whether gay Americans have the same constitu tional right to marry as heterosexuals. ASSOCIATED PRESS President Barack Obama arrives at the Commander-in-Chiefs Inaugural Ball in Washington during the 57th Presidential Inauguration on Monday. The president quickly ran into a storm of criticism on Tuesday over some of the ideas he espoused in his inaugural address. Poll: Many illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in US ASSOCIATED PRESS Immigrants wait apply for the Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals last August in Langley Park, Md. Federal policy allowed illegal immigrants to file applications to allow them to avoid depor tation and get work permits but not a path to citizenship. More than 6 in 10 Americans now favor allowing illegal immigrants to eventually become U.S. citizens, a major increase in sup port driven by a turnaround in Republicans opinion after the 2012 elections. Bitter cold grips Midwest Associated Press MADISON, Wis. Homeless people scram bled to find shelter, schools closed down and plumbers wrestled with frozen pipes Tuesday as the Upper Midwest endured a third straight day of bitter cold temperatures. Waves of frigid Arctic air began sweeping south from Canada on Saturday night, locking the Midwest in a deep freeze that has left a section of the coun try well-acquainted with winters pains reeling. Authorities suspect expo sure has played a role in at least four deaths so far. The coldest location in the lower 48 states Monday was Embarrass, Minn., at 36 below. On Sunday it was Babbitt, Minn., at 29 below, according to the National Weather Service. The bitter conditions were expected to persist into the weekend in the Midwest through the eastern half of the U.S., weather serice meteorologist Shawn DeVinny said. Critics pounce on proposals in inaugural speech. Major change in attitude occurs with Republicans.
By KELLI KENNEDY Associated Press FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida lawmakers con sidering how to implement the federal health care over haul sought information Tuesday from two econo mists on the Massachusetts initiative that served as the blueprint for the national plan. Massachusetts pioneered an approach emulated in the federal Affordable Care Act with its 2006 health care initiative and is cur rently the only state that requires individuals to have health insurance. I thought it would be helpful to exam ine the results so far in Massachusetts and con sider implications of that experience for Florida. Not everyone agrees with the Massachusetts experiment and how its turned out, said Republican Sen. Joe Negron, the chairman of a Senate committee studying the health overhaul. Jonathan Gruber, an economics professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who helped craft the states law, hailed it as a great success that dropped the number of insured residents by twothirds and lowered premi ums by about 50 percent. He said the initiative did so without crowding out pri vate insurers. But Michael Cannon, director of Health Policy Studies for the Cato Institute, argued that the law depresses economic activity, eliminates jobs and increases health care costs along with burdening the federal government. He reminded lawmakers that Florida led the country in challenging the consti tutionality of the ACA and that it shouldnt respond to Supreme Court decisions that have given states lee way on whether to expand Medicaid by shrugging and implementing that costly Medicaid expansion anyway. Florida lawmakers are facing two major deci sions regarding the federal health overhaul. They must choose whether to expand Medicaid coverage to roughly 900,000 more lowincome families and wheth er to have the state run its health exchange on its own or partner with the federal government. The federal government is offering to pick up the entire tab of the Medicaid expansion for the first three years about 90 percent after that. Florida spends about $21 billion a year to cover nearly 3 million of the states poor est residents, about half of whom are children. Gruber said that if Florida does not expand Medicaid it will lead to higher pre miums for those shopping for coverage in the state health exchange because hospitals will still have to cover uninsured patients in crisis. Cannon, however, urged state senators to reject an expansion by saying theres little reliable evidence the taxpayer-funded program improves health outcomes and no evidence of cost sav ings. He said states cant afford it. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has echoed similar concerns about the cost of Medicaid expansion. Earlier this month, he estimated it would cost $26 billion over a decade, but the state health agency later revised that figure to $3 billion after pressure from lawmakers who accused Scott of trying to play poli tics with the numbers. Cannon urged lawmakers not to create a state health exchange and instead file a lawsuit to block the IRS illegal taxes and even pre vent the federal govern ment from operating an exchange here in Florida. The new marketplaces are intended to take the confusion and anxiety out of buying private health insurance for individuals and families. Exchanges are meant to have the feel of an online travel site, such as Expedia or Orbitz. Cannon estimates that refusing a health exchange would exempt 1.1 million Floridians from having to pay penalties for not pur chasing insurance. Gruber encouraged law makers to consider small practical steps, such as set ting up an evaluation pro cess so the state can see what choices residents are making in the exchange, how theyre arriving at those decisions and wheth er its the most beneficial choice for them. Negron asked Cannon to explain why conservatives, who typically bristle at fed eral government interven tion, are urging states to allow the feds to run their exchanges. How did it turn out those arguments seem to have been flipped? he asked. Cannon said the states that choose to run a health exchange are doing so in name only because the fed eral government is still call ing the shots. Later, he struggled to find an answer when Negron repeatedly pressed how a family of four making $25,000 a year should pay for health care if the state didnt offer Medicaid. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 8A Flex Plan Remember, your Flex Plan Insurance covers Eye Care...

Lawing has 33 years of coaching experience, including 29 on the defen-sive line. He had been South Carolinas D-line coach since 2006 and just finished his 17th season with the Gamecocks. He replaces Dan Quinn, who was Floridas defen-sive coordinator and line coach. NFL lifts suspension of Saints coach Sean PaytonAssociated PressNEW YORK Sean Payton is back as coach of the New Orleans Saints. Paytons season-long suspension for his role in the Saints bounty program was lifted by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday, nearly two weeks earlier than expected. The decision allows Payton to attend the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., on Saturday, where some of the top college players available for the NFL draft will be competing. Payton, along with assistant head coach Joe Vitt, general manager Mickey Loomis, and four players including Jonathan Vilma, was suspended after an investigation found the club had a performance pool offering cash rewards for key plays, including big hits. The player suspen-sions eventually were over-turned. I clearly recognize that mistakes were made, which led to league violations, Payton said in a state-ment. Furthermore, I have assured the commissioner a more diligent protocol will be followed. The suspension was scheduled to end after the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, but was moved up after Payton and Goodell met on Monday. Coach Payton acknowledged in the meeting his responsibility for the actions of his coach-ing staff and players and pledged to uphold the highest standards of the NFL and ensure that his staff and players do so as well, Goodell said in a state-ment. Sean fully complied with all the requirements imposed on him during his suspension. More important, it is clear that Sean understands and accepts his responsibili-ties as a head coach and the vital role that coaches play in promoting player safety and setting an example for how the game should be played at all levels. Saints owner Tom Benson welcomed back his coach. We are all thankful that Sean Payton has been rein-stated, Benson said. We have a lot of work to do and we are in the middle of it right now.
DEAR ABBY: I am 21 and I have an anger prob-lem. Sometimes when my friends, roommates or my boyfriend do something that annoys me, I feel so mad that I cant concen-trate on anything I have to get done. Im having that problem right now because one of my roommates was mean to me tonight. I think Im owed an apology, but I know I wont be getting one. I cant talk to her. I know if I do Ill just feel worse and we wont get anywhere. I cant even concentrate on writing my paper because Im so ticked off! Is it normal to get this mad? How can I control my anger better? Taking a deep breath and count-ing to 10 just makes me feel angrier. Id feel better if I punched the wall, but the last time I did that I bruised my fist. Do you have any guidelines? -CONSUMED BY ANGER IN HERNDON, VA. DEAR CONSUMED BY ANGER: Anger is a normal emotion. Everybody has experienced it at one time or another. But its impor-tant to learn to express anger in ways that are constructive rather than destructive. If it is channeled in the right direction, anger can be a positive emotion. Uncontrolled, it can be extremely harmful and even a killer. The chal-lenge that everyone faces is how not to deny the feeling but to express the anger -or diffuse it -in ways that are productive. In a situation like yours, saying out loud in a controlled manner that something has made you angry can be like releas-ing steam from a pressure cooker. Its certainly more productive than making a bullying gesture; hitting a wall with your fist implies that the next punch might land on the person who pushed your buttons. In my booklet The Anger in All of Us and How to Deal With It, I offer many sug-gestions that can help you manage your emotions in a more constructive way. It can be ordered by send-ing your name and mailing address, plus a check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds), to Dear Abby -Anger Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Step one in managing your anger is to recognize that the emotion is build-ing before you lose control or become so angry that you cant concentrate on what is most important right now -and that is your academic studies. I know that if you learn to manage and control your anger, you will benefit greatly as you move for-ward in life. I have faith in you! ** ** **DEAR ABBY: If a couple has been dating for a long time and are sexually active, do you think he has a right to have sex with her while shes sleeping? My sister and I disagree about this. I feel its abuse. My sister isnt quite sure what to think. -CATHY IN KINGSTON, N.Y. DEAR CATHY: If someone has sex with you with-out your consent, it isnt abuse. It is rape. P.S. If the boyfriend in question is so inept at love-making that his partner snores right through it, then it seems to me that only the boyfriend is sexu-ally active. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take part in events in which you feel you can offer something special. Your unusual way of look-ing at things will help shed light on a situation that has been impossible for someone you are close to. Rely on past experience. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Give love, entertain-ment, travel and commu-nication top priority. The more you interact with others and participate in interesting events, the more you will discover about yourself and the people you associate with. Disagreeing with someone will be a waste of time. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put effort into learn-ing more about someone who interests you per-sonally or professionally. Mixing business with plea-sure will help you discover a unique way to utilize your skills with what someone else has to offer. Travel to a destination you find inspiring. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): A partnership will take an unexpected turn. Wager the pros and cons before hanging on to someone or something that is of no use to you anymore. You have to cut your losses and make room for new begin-nings. Love is highlighted. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Tread carefully when deal-ing with domestic matters or older relatives who require your attention. You are likely to face an unfor-tunate situation if you dont take care of your responsi-bilities before you engage in your own entertainment. Help others first. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Shake things up and spice up your life. You are in a high romantic cycle and should enjoy the com-pany of someone you think is special, but dont feel you have to be extravagant to win someones favor. Be yourself and have fun. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put greater emphasis on things you enjoy doing. Take on a challenge if it will get you motivated to explore interests or finish projects. Dont let your emotions cost you a friend-ship or cause you to miss out on a good time. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be careful what you say and who you share your information with or you may get caught in the middle of someone elses fight. Step back and view each personal situation you face from a distance. Focus on love and creativ-ity. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Put more thought into what you want to do professionally. A change that will help you fulfill a lifelong dream may be within reach if you gather information and do your best to network and connect with people who share your interest. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Look, see and do. Dont sit back and let others take over. Your future depends on the contribution you make now. Open up to new ideas and make suggestions that will ensure practicality is injected into the plans you make. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Whats the hold-up?. Make personal changes that will surprise the people who care about you, and you will gain their support. Added respect will give you the inspira-tion to go the distance. A new beginning is within reach. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Put more time and attention into moneymak-ing ideas. Focus on those you feel can contribute the most. Dont let an emotion-al incident that happened a long time ago stand in the way of an opportunity you get now. Make amends and make things happen. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
