TUNSIL continued on 3A BUDGET continued on 3A Scott seeks$1.2B morefor schools Lookingback at a life cutshortBy DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comThe night Sgt. Ruben Howard Thomas III died, Bill Brewer was there. He rushed to help, but was struck in the eye with a heavy, metal lock from inside a sock swung by the man who killed his friend. Thomas was a corrections officer with Columbia Correctional Institution, and Brewer still works as a corrections officer with CCI. Brewers eye is 75 percent functional after the attack. Now, almost a year later, Brewer is working to make sure Thomas will not be forgotten. CCI is raising money to build a memorial for Thomas, who was killed by an inmate on March 18, 2012. Its a healing process for all of us (who work at CCI), Brewer said. Its a way for us to say we are not forgetting. The memorial will include a flag pole 22 and one-half feet tall. Brewer said Thomas died at 22:30 mili-tary time, and the flag pole was deliberately designed to symbolize the time of his death. The Sgt. Ruben Thomas Memorial will be at the pris-ons entrance, so it can be seen from U.S. 90. No matter where you go, you will see it, Brewer said. Also, at the memorial there will be a bench and a pedestal monument. Brewer said the memori-al committee has decided on the quote to put on the bench. It comes from the Bible, John 15:13.All-American FILEColumbia High School left tackle Laremy Tunsil has bee n picked for the Parade All-America High School Football Team.

Rick Scott will ask for a $1.2 billion boost in spending on public schools in the coming year, a move that could set up a clash with the Republican-con-trolled Legislature but could boost his bid for re-election. Scott revealed the figure when he outlined his top spending priorities during The Associated Press 19th annual planning meeting on Wednesday. His announcement comes a day before the Republican governor is expected to make his 2013 budget recommendations to state legislators. Scott will give additional details on his budget proposal, although it is unlikely that Scott will provide a definitive answer on whether he supports accepting federal aid to expand Medicaid. The total amount of money that Scott plans to seek for public schools includes his previously announced pitch to give every teacher in the state a $2,500 pay raise. Scott who just two years ago had recommended a cut in education said that his proposal would boost per-student spending by roughly 6.5 percent. Investing in our teachers and in our education system is the key to our states continued economic growth, Scott said. We made the hard choices to recover and get back on track now we must make the smart choices to invest in Floridas future. Some Democrats called Scotts recommendation an epiphany that may be more about his 2014 re-election bid. Scott has battled low poll numbers for most of his time in office. Hes finally admitting that I was wrong to try to starve education, said Sen. Chris Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale. A breakdown of Scotts schools proposal Scott Memorial to slain corrections officeris planned. Thomas MEMORIAL continued on 3A House, Senateleaders outline5-point agendaBy BILL KACZORAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Strengthening ethics and campaign-finance laws and improving Floridas universities are among the goals that Florida House and Senate leaders said Wednesday theyve agreed to jointly pursue in the coming legislative session. House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz both Republicans, said they also want to phase out pensions that pro-vide defined benefits for public employees and replace them with 401(k)-like personal invest-ment plans. Finally, they pledged to fix problems such as long voter lines and delayed reporting of results that plagued Floridas general election last year. Gaetz, of Niceville, and Weatherford, from Wesley Chapel, outlined their five-point agenda in a joint appearance before editors and report-ers at the annual legislative planning meeting sponsored by The Associated Press. The 60-day annual session begins March 5. To drive home how strongly he feels about those issues, Weatherford, the father of three young children, noted that he couldnt finish teaching his 4-year-old daughter to ride her bicycle because he had to attend to his duties in Tallahassee. His wife, though, sent him a video showing her finally riding the bike on her own. If Im going to miss that, were going to come up here and do real stuff, Weatherford said.

AROUND FLORIDA Woman faces 351 years in prison FORT LAUDERDALE A South Florida woman convicted in an identity theft and tax fraud ring faces a potential maximum prison sentence of 351 years behind bars. Trial testimony showed that 36-year-old Alci Bonannee of Fort Lauderdale was the leader of a ring that filed some 2,000 fraudulent tax returns over a two-year period. Those fake returns sought about $11 million tax refunds, some of which was paid. Prosecutors said Tuesday that Bonannee obtained much of the per-sonal information used in the returns from a nurse at a local hospital. A jury convicted Bonannee of 33 separate counts including identity theft, wire fraud and con-spiracy to defraud the gov-ernment. B Two others pleaded guilty and face maximum prison sentences of 10 and 12 years, respectively. Bonannee will likely get less than 351 years.State to keeps custody of boys HALLANDALE BEACH Two brothers of a miss-ing baby who is presumed dead will remain in state custody following a cus-tody hearing.

Thought for Today Happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you have. Rabbi Hyman Judah Schachtel, American theologian, author and educator (1907-1990) Lindsay Lohan in court againLOS ANGELES L indsay Lohan briefly appeared in court Wednesday for the first time in nearly a year and left with a new attorney, new trial date and new judge. Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner shook her head when she saw Lohan seated with her attorney, just months after the judge had warned the Liz and Dick star to grow up and stay out of trouble. The actress was required to attend the pretrial hearing involving three misdemeanor counts filed after a car crash last summer. Lohan has pleaded not guilty to lying to police, reckless driving and obstructing offi-cers from performing their duties. Sautner previously sent her to jail, placed her under house arrest and forced her to perform morgue cleanup duty in another case. Sautner warned Lohan on Wednesday that she could face jail time for a possible probation viola-tion, even if she is acquitted of the counts filed after her sports car crashed into a dump truck. Lohan was on probation at the time of the wreck and could be sen-tenced to 245 days in jail if a judge determines her actions in the crash were a violation of her sentence in a theft case. Lohans new trial date is March 18. Lohan was accompanied to court by her new attorney, Mark Heller, who said he wanted to get the case resolved as quickly as possible.Rihanna on dating Brown: A mistake? NEW YORK Rihanna says if dating Chris Brown is mistake, shes OK with that. The singer tells Rolling Stone in an interview that dating Brown makes her happy and if its a mistake, its my mistake. She adds that shes ready to go public with her singer-boyfriend. Four years ago, Brown attacked Rihanna and was charged with a felony. But rumors about their rela-tionship emerged after the singers collaborated on songs and appeared in photos together. Rihanna says she knows that her history with 23-year-old Brown is not the cutest puzzle in the world. The 24-year-old also vows that Brown is disgusted by what he did in the past. She says the two have matured and they know exactly what we have now, and we dont want to lose that. The magazines new issue hits newsstands Friday.

MEMORIAL: Fundraising effort under way Continued From Page 1AGreater love hath no man than this; A man who lays down his life for his friend, will be inscribed on the back of the bench. Brewer, CCI chair of the memorial and morale committees, said the plan is to dedicate the memorial on March 18, the first anniversary of Thomass death. The memorial committee set a budget of $8,000 for the project, and has been selling commemorative bricks that will allow up to three lines of text for an inscription. The bricks cost $35. Brewer said to pay for the monument about 1,800 bricks need to be sold. As of Wednesday, the memorial committee has collected about 12 percent of the $8,000, or a little less than $1,000. Sherry Martin, morale committee member and a nurse at CCI, said cor-rectional officers in the prison system has donated their time to help stay within the budget. She said Darrell Kennington, who works at Union Correctional Institution, will build the flag pole for the memorial, and Sgt. Reginald Lewis put thoughts onto paper by creating a conceptual drawing of the memorial. She said CCI has received support from other prisons across the state, and the one of the goals was to make it so people could go sit and reminisce. Brewer said he would like to collect the entire $8,000 by the end of February so that the entire monu-ment can be built by March 18 for the dedication. On Feb. 28, CCI will sponsor the Ruben Thomas Memorial Golf Tournament at the Lake City Country Club, all proceeds from which will help fund the memori-al. The tournament will be a four -person scramble, and have a shotgun start. Entry is $60 per person or $240 per team. Hole sponsorship costs $100, or co-sponsorship for $50. Any money left over after the construction of the memorial will be put into a trust fund for Thomass children, Brewer said. Call 292-7127 to contact Brewer about the golf tour-nament or to buy a brick for the memorial. SCHOOL: White male intruder being sought Continued From Page 1Amachine, but noted it had not been opened. Inside the main cafeteria room, a window in the northwest corner had been shattered. Also, the left serving line double door window was shattered in the main room, which Crews said appeared to be the way the burglar entered the kitchen area. In the kitchen area, the kitchen managers office window was broken, and the cash drawer was on the floor in front of the man-agers desk. There was no money in the cash drawer before or after the burglary occurred, according to the offense report. A security camera in the cafeteria captured a very brief shadowed image of what appeared to be a white male in light colored cloth-ing, Crews said. The suspect appeared to have cloth material draped over his head to conceal his face, according to the report. The report said the scene was processed for finger-prints, and the prints that were recovered were sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to be processed. BUDGET: Schools would get $1.2 billion more Continued From Page 1A AGENDA: Five-point planContinued From Page 1A TUNSIL: A top pick Continued From Page 1AThe two leaders higher education proposals include expanding online learning and offering cash incentives to universities to increase enrollment in fields that offer the best job opportunities to gradu-ates. The lawmakers said they believe the state can provide high-quality virtual courses to more students at lower cost than tradition-al classroom attendance. Why would we not offer them that in the comfort of their home if thats what they want? Weatherford asked. State University System Chancellor Frank Brogan later told reporters and editors that Florida already is a leader in online educa-tion but warned that doing it properly doesnt come cheaply. Online profes-sors still must have direct access to students, he said, and universities still need to offer the same support services that traditional students receive. Its labor intensive, Brogan said. Its not what some people believe it is. Brogan said the way to improve online learning is for one or several universi-ties working together to lead a statewide effort. I love local control, but the fact that we do 30,000 courses and 700 degree programs, while an amazing volume, doesnt address the issue of what quality we should expect, how its accessible, how its affordable and how you help provide a support net-work to make sure people graduate from it, Brogan said. The legislative leaders want to expand an exist-ing initiative providing Floridas universities $15 million to increase enroll-ment in computer technol-ogy programs. Gaetz said its not just about science, technol-ogy, engineering and math programs, known as the STEM fields, that Gov. Rick Scott and other offi-cials have been promoting as a path to higher-paying, high-demand jobs. The Senate president noted there are differ-ences even among STEM programs. For instance, health information stu-dents got jobs faster than meteorology majors. as a whole, Allen said. Allen pointed out a few things that sets Tunsil apart from other players at his position. Hes got an unbelievable work ethic and special athletic ability for a kid of his size, Allen said. Hes just athleti-cally gifted. You dont find a lot of 300-pounders with those kind of special gifts. Doug Peeler was Tunsils position coach throughout his career with the Tigers, and he echoed Allens sentiments. Hes got a rare form of athleticism, Peeler said. He combines size and strength. Peeler also noted Tunsils behavior in prac-tice. He was easy to coach and always listened, Peeler said. He works hard, was able to quickly pick up the system and understands the game. The Lake City Reporter tried to reach Tunsil for comment, but phone calls were not immediately returned. shows that some of the $1.2 billion wont necessar-ily make an impact in the classroom. His recommen-dations include a nearly $300 million payment into the state pension plan on behalf of teachers. Scotts recommendation also includes a $100 million technology initiative, as well as the money needed to cover increased school enrollment. Its unclear, however, whether Scotts fellow Republicans will approve a budget that includes his spending priorities. Legislative leaders have already said they are uneasy with an across-the-board pay raise for teacher salaries. But they also said that while the economy is improving the state does not have an unlimited bud-get surplus. We do have more revenue, our budget surplus is breathing room, House Speaker Will Weatherford said. Its not enough to put your feet up on the couch. Scott is expected to announce on Thursday spending reductions in some areas of state spend-ing, including nearly $100 million in savings realized from changes in state con-tracts, the elimination of nearly 932 positions by closing offices, shedding vacant state jobs and reor-ganizing parts of state gov-ernment. But the governor refused to say much on what may be the biggest budget ques-tion of the 2013 session: Will the state of Florida accept billions in federal aid to expand Medicaid coverage? Under President Barack Obamas health care law, Washington would pay 100 percent of the costs of expanding Medicaid from 2014 to 2016. Between 2017 and 2020, the federal share would decrease to 90 percent and the states contri-bution would rise in stages to 10 percent, and thats where it would stay. The law calls for states in 2014 to expand eligibil-ity of Medicaid to those making up to 133 percent of the poverty level, or $29,326 for a family of four in Florida. The changes would also require adding people who are below the poverty level but not eli-gible for Medicaid, such as childless adults. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last summer that expansion of Medicaid is not mandatory and states can opt out if they choose.
OPINION Thursday, January 31, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A T he news lately has been disturb-ing. Sporadic outbreaks of sanity and common sense have been occurring across the country. It may be the dawning of a new Age of Aquarius, a challenge to those of us who missed the last one because our moms put our bell-bottomed jeans in the wash. Consider recent developments: Immigration reform has strong biparti-san support in Congress; the Boy Scouts of America is reconsidering its national policy banning gay scouts; women in the military are being offi-cially allowed into combat; and the Tea Partys idea of risking fiscal disaster by precipitating a govern-ment shutdown in order to avoid fiscal disaster has been the subject of politi-cal second thoughts. Why, even the notion that assault weapons are essential to the preserva-tion of the Constitution, as conceived by the Founding Fathers with their assault muskets, has led to a rare national exclamation of huh? In rebuttal of those who ask What part of the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed dont you understand? the answer is increasingly What part of a well-regulated militia dont you understand? It is possible other examples of newfound sanity may exist, but thats enough common sense for now. As it is, the appearance of an ascending road to reason lit by thought and fair play takes a little getting used to. The fact that some of the newly enlightened lantern bear-ers are conservatives makes it even harder for a liberal like myself to understand. After all, theirs was a party whose candidates for president spent months falling over each other to appear more right-wing wacky than the next. Genghis Khan could not have kept up with that crowd. What a difference an election makes. This new era of reasonableness may not last, but just in case it does, and the snark and satire industry is hard-hit jeopardizing my job I have made taken this challenge and made it into an opportunity. I have founded a business, which I intend to run from home during periods of redun-dancy. A press release explains it: Welcome to www. reg-mea-culpa.com, the website for those who have much explaining and apologizing to do. Have you stood athwart history yelling Stop! only to be flattened by oncoming, inevitable social change? Have you been a politi-cian opposing the rights of minorities and women only to discover that the American people are not all Neanderthals? Then reg-mea-culpa. com is for you.

Here are some examples of our recent work: Q Dear Hispanics of America: It came to our attention during the presidential election that some of you would rather have voted for a cactus than a Republican candidate on the grounds that the cactus was less prickly to your sensitivities. Apparently some of you have mistakenly gotten the impression that we in the GOP think you are all illegal criminals who have come here to take away jobs from those Americans who, just like you, are dying to make motel beds and pick let-tuce when not on welfare. We regret this impression very much and we are mucho sorry, as you say in your language. Please vote for us next time because we now believe in immigration reform. Really. Sincerely, the RNC Q Dear Military Ladies of America: We are glad you little gals are going to be at the front lines as much as you like. We apologize for suggesting that you were too frail for the work and might have a touch of the vapors in combat.

We thank you for your service.

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 S tate Sen. Don Gaetz, the reform-minded president of the Florida Senate, comes from a Florida Panhandle county called Okaloosa, a county some now call Scandal-oosa. Consider that in January, the Okaloosa County tax collector resigned after it was discover ed he made public employees work at his private business. In September, a county commissioner was arrested fo r perjury and official misconduct. Last May, its Tour ist Development Council director committed suicide after stealing bed tax and BP settlement money. Two years ago, its hometown speaker of the Florida Hous e resigned after wielding his influence to benefit hi mself and a political benefactor. That same year, its loc al college president resigned after accepting public mone y for a private airport hangar. And in 2009, its sheriff was convicted on federal fraud and money-laundering charge s. Sadly, public corruption in Florida is not isolated to Gaetzs mid-sized county, which is why all of Flori da should be enormously grateful for his leadership in trying to end it. Indeed, Florida ranks No. 1 in public corruption. Between 2001 and 2010, federal prosecutors convicte d 781 politicians for enriching themselves at the pub lic trough, according to the watchdog group, Integrity Florida. Two months ago, when he became president of the Florida Senate, Gaetz promised to make a difference And last week, he scored a big victory in pushing t he most sweeping ethics reform law in decades. The bill that unanimously passed its first committe e would: Prohibit state lawmakers from voting on bills that would line their pockets. Its hard to imagine this is not already illegal, but its currently allowed, so lon g as lawmakers disclose their conflict within 14 days of a vote. Prohibit politicians from taking a state governmen t job after their election. Colleges and universities are especially generous in offering six-figure jobs to newly elected lawmakers, hoping their investment brings home the bacon. Ban lawmakers from lobbying the governor or the Legislature for two years after leaving office. Jus t last year, the day after the legislative session ended, the speaker of the House became a lobbyist for companie s whose businesses benefited from his votes. Prohibit politicians from using political committe es for personal expenses. Some lawmakers pay their liv ing expenses from these committees, which can accep t even demand million-dollar checks from people who want something from government. The question now is whether the Florida House of Representatives will join the reform effort, or let a good thing die in the horse-trading over its own legisla tive wants. For while House Speaker Will Weatherford is support ive of ethics reform, weve yet to see movement fro m his members, many of whom enjoy the perks of political life and dont want to limit their possibilities. We, the people who sent Gaetz, and Weatherford and the other members of the Legislature to Tallahassee to represent us, expect the highest standards of ethic al conduct We applaud Sen. Gaetz and Weatherford, too for pushing meaningful ethics reform. Now, lets get it done. Ethics reform: Get it done Disturbing news from D.C.

BY EMAIL: email@example.comT he Chesapeake Bay has a problem, and soon you will, too, unless area resi-dents can eat a certain species of invasive fish into extinction. Ravenous local humans have come close to eating Chesapeake Bay oysters, blue crabs, rockfish and sturgeon out of existence, but this particular species poses special problems, beginning with its name the snakehead. These fish are as ugly as their name sounds, and while they will eat anything, not much will eat them. Snakeheads have mouths full of nasty teeth, grow to nearly 4 feet long and 15 pounds, and proliferate like crazy. Theyre native to China and Korea, but turned up in the Washington area only a few years ago when they were discovered in a Maryland pond. If they dont like their surroundings, they slither overland to more desirable venues, which is evidently how they wound up in the Potomac River and in the Chesapeake. Environmentalists hope that restaurant patrons will if not eat snakeheads out of existence at least gnaw them down to manageable numbers. Its proving to be a tough sell. The legendary hostess Perle Mesta had a simple maxim for fill-ing out the tables at a Washington dinner party: Hang a lamb chop in the window. Somehow its hard to believe that hanging a snakehead in the window will exert the same kind of social magic. The other night, the snakeheads numerous enemies held their second annual ProFish Invasive Species Dinner at a popular local seafood restaurant. (Washington is the kind of town where people turn out for this sort of thing, even at $125 a plate.) The chefs did their best to make the snakehead appear appetizing. The Washington Posts reporter described one dish as sliced snake-head marinated in a tasty chimi-churri sauce, skewered, baked and served with a sweet-potato chorizo flauta. The coverage included a photo of a man feeding a spoonful to his very unenthusiastic-looking date. Selling the snakehead is going to be an uphill battle. The Chinese claim great curative powers for snakehead soup, but the Chinese brand has been rather sullied because they claim magical benefits from all sorts of disgusting food products rhino horn, bear paws, shark fins. American law prohibits deceptive and dishonest medicinal claims, which pretty much bars the most effective means of eliminating this unwanted fish: A snakehead a day will make you as randy as a teenager. Rediscover the magic of adolescent hormones through the magic of snakeheads. Maybe we could enlist Michelle Obama to insist that a tasty slice of snakehead should be part of every nutritious school lunch. Or we could do it the good, old-fash-ioned American way and serve it to the troops and disaster victims, two groups who dont really have a choice. 4AOPINION Q South Florida Sun-Sentinel Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service.

By KELLI KENNEDY Associated Press MIAMI Floridas Republican lawmakers are reluctantly acknowledging that the Affordable Care Act is the law of the land and are taking steps to deter mine exactly what that will look like. The Sunshine State has one of the high est numbers of uninsured residents in the country, some of the most stringent eligibility requirements for health care safety nets, a large number of legal immi grants and a proposal to privatize its Medicaid pro gram statewide. So how will the federal health overhaul impact that? There are still a lot of unanswered questions, perhaps the biggest being whether Gov. Rick Scott will expand Floridas Medicaid rolls. The Republican gov ernor was a vocal opponent of so-called Obamacare but softened his stance after the November election. He remains wary of the increased cost a Medicaid expansion could bring to Florida taxpayers and has been accused of playing politics with numbers after he referenced figures show ing costs could be as high as $26 billion over a decade. The state health agency later revised that figure to $3 billion. Florida lawmakers are also playing catch-up because the Legislative ses sion is not convening until March, after or very close to federal deadlines. Here are some questions and answers about how the Affordable Care Act could play out in Florida. Q: How many Floridians are uninsured and how many of those are project ed to get insurance under the exchange? A: Florida had the nations third-highest rate of residents without health insurance during the past three years, according to Census data. It also has some of the most stringent eligibility requirements in the country for Medicaid. A family of three with income of $11,000 a year makes too much to qualify and single residents are not covered. Nearly 1 million people are estimated to take advan tage of the state exchange, including residents who are employed and the unemployed. Many would be eligible for federal sub sidies to help pay for it. Q: How many people Floridians are currently served by Medicaid and how many more will be served if lawmakers choose Medicaid expansion? A: Floridas Medicaid program currently costs more than $21 billion a year, with the federal gov ernment picking up rough ly half the tab. It covers nearly 3 million people about half are children and consumes about 30 percent of the state budget. About 900,000 more resi dents could be covered if Florida decides to expand its Medicaid rolls. Q: Is it true that U.S.born residents below the poverty line will not be able to get coverage in the exchanges but legal immigrants below the pov erty line will be able to get coverage through the exchanges? A: Yes. The Affordable Care Act assumes that states would expand Medicaid coverage, so the only provision for a subsidy below 100 percent of the federal poverty level is for aliens who are in the coun try legally but are ineli gible for Medicaid because of their alien status. That means if Florida does not expand its Medicaid rolls, only legal immigrants, but not citi zens, would be eligible for subsidies under the exchange. A spokeswoman for Gov. Scott has said he is concerned over how legal immigrants and U.S. citizens are treated differ ently under the presidents healthcare law, which we continue to learn more about. Q: How many small busi nesses are likely to take advantage of the health insurance offered on the state exchange? A: Many small business owners are still in wait and see mode. Florida led the country in challenging the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, but the Supreme Court upheld it. Thats left Florida scram bling at the 11th hour to make decisions about how the state wants to imple ment the law and many unanswered questions. With little guidance from lawmakers, many small business owners dont want to jump right into an exchange environment because they dont know what to expect, said Jon Urbanek, a senior vice president with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida. Urbanek said about 50 percent of the small busi nesses his company talked with initially indicated they would opt out and pay a pen alty for not providing cover age. But as Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida is working with employers, that num ber has fallen below 20 per cent, he said. He also anticipated between 15 to 18 percent of small businesses will stop offering health coverage and allow their employees to seek their own indi vidual coverage under an exchange. Q: How is the exchange going to be set up in Florida and which agency will be responsible for overseeing it? A: Florida has three options. It can run the exchange itself, partner with federal health officials or allow federal officials to run the program entirely. At this point, Florida has defaulted into allowing the feds to run the program because leaders missed key deadlines, but the door is still open for lawmakers to consider a partnership or run the program them selves in the future. The Department of Children and Families cur rently determines Medicaid eligibility and the Agency for Health Care Administration oversees the program. Q: How much money has Florida received so far from the federal government to do the initial work in setting up an exchange? A: Florida was awarded $1 million in a planning grant in 2010, but never drew down the funds so they expired in 2011, according to federal health officials. Q: How will the changes under the Affordable Care Act effect Floridas plans to privatize Medicaid state wide? A: In an effort to cut costs, Florida lawmakers passed sweeping legislation in 2011 to privatize Medicaid. Rather than having govern ment insurance, patients would be assigned to forprofit insurance companies, which would receive a perperson fee from the state and decide what services and prescriptions to cover. But the state is still waiting on the federal government to sign off on the proposal. If Gov. Scott decides to expand Medicaid, the 900,000 new recipients would get their Medicaid coverage under the privatized system. Q: How will Florida resi dents access the exchange and what kind of customer support will be offered? A: Regardless of who runs the exchange, making sure that Floridians have ample guidance in select ing a plan is a key priority. Federal health officials are launching a website with chat capabilities and a 24 hour call center. Individual health companies will also offer their own customer support. Some health plans will have walk-in storefronts and mall kiosks for custom ers to talk to someone in person. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 6AHEALTH Accepting New Patients Medicare, Blue Cross, Tri-Care and most insurance plans accepted Specializing in adult medical care including: Primary Care High Blood Pressure Heart Disease Lung Disease Gastrointestinal High Cholesterol Diabetes Headache Evaluation and Treatment Arthritis Low Back Problems Evaluation and Treatment Optifast Weight Loss System Full Dizziness, vertigo and balance diagnosis and treatment Womens Health Allergy Testing & Treatment Accepting New Patients SOUTHERN INTERNAL MEDICINE Located in the Lake City Mediplex Building 404 N.W.

From staff reports Rivalry rematch JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Columbia Highs Andrew Momeaka makes a jump shot over Fort White Highs Melton Sanders during a game on Dec. 17. The two teams tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Lake City. Columbia, Fort White meet tonight By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com The headlines last time read that it was a hoops hurting for Columbia High after the Indians of Fort White defeated the Tigers, 74-53 on Dec. 17. This time, Columbia head coach Horace Jefferson will have his team back at full throttle and is hoping to reverse the outcome. Columbia played without its leading scorer, Morris Marshall, after he rolled his ankle at school on the day of the game. Jefferson didnt make excuses after the game for missing his points leaders, but he hopes Marshall can give the Tigers a boost this time around. We missed his points, but that did not cost us the game, Jefferson said after the initial contest. I thought we had enough firepower, but Fort White just outplayed us. They got every loose ball and we made poor decisions. We didnt compete like we should have. Fort White was also miss ing a player as Trey Phillips was competing in an all-star game. This time, both players are expected to compete. Jefferson hopes having his guy will make a differ ence. We hope that Marshall is a big factor, Jefferson said. I hope he makes the difference. But Jefferson also called out one of his other lead ers in point guard Javonta Foster, who he expects to have a bounce-back game against the Indians after being shut out in the last contest. Foster didnt score and I anticipate a different game from him, Jefferson said. I think that hes going to play good. Jefferson said the two, along with Tre Simmons, which make up the Tigers Big 3, have Columbia playing as well as they have all season. I think were playing as good as we have all year and thats the way you want to be playing at this point, Jefferson said. I think it will make for an interesting matchup. Jefferson believes there are two keys for the Tigers to come out on top this time. We have to either out run them or slow them down, Jefferson said. We have to be able to handle their pressure. Theyre great at creating turnovers and last time we didnt take care of the ball. Last time, the Tigers were led by Dekarry Rossin with 16 points. Although Jefferson appreciated his points inside, he was quick to point out that Rossin shouldnt be the Tigers leading scorer. Our offense doesnt run through Rossin and he gets most of his points on put backs, Jefferson said. If hes leading us in scoring it isnt a good thing, because that means were missing a lot of shots. On the opposite side of that, it means we had a presence inside. Missing long jump ers wont help the Tigers and plays into the game of Fort White according to Jefferson. They have a tendency to release guys, he said. We have to be aware of that. Its going to sound crazy, but our perimeter players must be aware of what they need to do on defense while theyre playing offense. Fort White gets a lot of their points by beating other teams down the court. They create turnovers and their good in transition and on fast breaks. Since making a move to the starting lineup, Jefferson has continually singled out Akeem Williams as being a big key on the defensive side. The coach believes that Williams will play a pivotal role in tonights matchup. We expect (Melton) CHS continued on 2B

The thing is, at the end of the game, we want him to be totally exhausted. Its kind of the same way we felt about Jimmie Taylor III from Suwannee. He had 24 points, but those were tough points. They were all tough baskets. We have to put the pressure on him. And as far as Fort Whites other players, Jefferson said that nothing can come easy. There shouldnt be any free baskets, Jefferson said. Every shot must be contested. If we can con-test every shot and han-dle the press, I think well make it a good game. Im not as much overly con-cerned about what they do as much as I am executing what we do. But at the end of the day, it comes down to Foster and Marshall for the coach. Obviously we need Foster to score more than zero, Jefferson said. We need more than zero from Marshall as well and thats kinda sarcasm since he didnt play last time.

ASSOCIATED PRESSBaltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco warms up durin g a practice on Wednesday in New Orleans. The Ravens face the San Francisco 49ers in Supe r Bowl XLVII on Sunday. Which brother wins? By BARRY WILNERAssociated PressNEW ORLEANS The San Francisco 49ers never have tasted defeat in a Super Bowl, going 5-0. Its the most impressive mark for any franchise in the big game. Baltimore also is undefeated, with the Ravens win-ning their only appearance, in 2001. Someone will have the Super Bowl blahs for the first time after Sundays title game in the Superdome. The Ravens (13-6), who are 3 1/2 -point underdogs, are on one of those runs reminiscent of recent NFL champions. Indeed, the New York Giants reached the Super Bowl a year ago in a similar manner, win-ning a wild-card game at home, then two playoffs on the road, including an over-time thriller. The Giants got healthy down the stretch, something the Ravens have replicated, particularly on defense where star linebackers Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs are giving vintage perfor-mances following injury-shortened seasons. I believe we have found a way to believe in each other, and nothing else mat-ters, said Lewis, who will retire after the game. That is one thing about our side-line. When we are on our sideline, there is only one thing that matters, when this game ends, we will be victorious. Thats whats been our road, no matter whos been up, whos been down, whos been hurt, whos been injured. Baltimores path to New Orleans led through New England, where the Ravens fell to the Patriots in last years AFC title game. But they outscored the Patriots 21-0 in the second half to earn their spot in the Super Bowl. San Francisco (13-4-1) also came up one win short a year ago, losing to the Giants for the NFC cham-pionship. That defeat has driven the 49ers just as much as the Ravens failure in 2011 lifted them. These Niners are built around a physical, stingy defense that also has been the Ravens persona for years, although not as much in 2012 as in Lewis other 17 pro seasons. Linebacker Patrick Willis, who like Lewis wears No. 52 and is a perennial All-Pro, is the anchor. As a kid, you grew up watching, Willis said. Just to have the opportunity to be able to play in this game given my first four years (out of the playoffs), we were at home at this time watching other teams play. Last year we were one game away. To be able to be here, is truly special. To make it extra special, San Franciscos offense will need to outdo Baltimores. The Ravens have scored 90 points in three games, and the Niners have 73 in two. Baltimores defense has made big plays against Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Now it gets an entirely dif-ferent type of quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. His com-bination of running skill, powerful arm and surpris-ing cool for a second-year pro makes him particularly dangerous against the Ravens. Baltimore does not have the fastest defense in the league. Then again, the 49ers must deal with Joe Flacco, the only QB to win a post-season game in each of his first five seasons. Flacco also has six road playoff victories, a league record. Hes also outplayed Brady, the most success-ful quarterback of the last dozen seasons, in two straight AFC title games. But he has his critics because this is his first Super Bowl trip in five tries. I think there is definitely a part of all of us that hear things and when somebody doubts what you want to do, you definitely go show them that they may be wrong, he said. While the Ravens and 49ers play for each other, the Harbaugh brothers will go against each other in the first Super Bowl featur-ing sibling head coaches. Theyve had fun with the topic this week, but it will be as serious as football can get on Sunday. With older brother John coming out on top. RAVENS, 27-24

PG-13 Gigolos Gigolos Ravens: Lewis report wont be a distractionASSOCIATED PRESSBaltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis warms up durin g a practice on Wednesday. By DAVID GINSBURGAssociated PressNEW ORLEANS The Baltimore Ravens dont intend to let the controver-sy surrounding linebacker Ray Lewis become a dis-traction in their prepara-tion for the Super Bowl. An article in Sports Illustrated said Lewis sought help from a compa-ny that says its deer-antler spray and pills contain a banned product connect-ed to human growth hor-mone. We cant let that distract us from our one true mission, winning the Super Bowl, Baltimore running back Ray Rice said Wednesday, shortly before the Ravens hit the practice field to prepare for Sundays game against the San Francisco 49ers. Minutes earlier, Lewis said he never, ever used performance-enhanc-ing drugs in his effort to return from a torn right triceps. He also distanced himself from Sports With Alternatives To Steroids (SWATS). The Ravens are standing behind the 37-year-old Lewis, who sat out 12 weeks before returning to fuel the Ravens playoff run. He will end his 17-year career after the Super Bowl. Ray is an awesome guy and were here to play foot-ball. We dont even want to give that (report) any merit, Baltimore guard Bobbie Williams said. Its kind of sad that they would try to discredit a guy whos done so much and been such a big influence not only to this team but the National Football League. Here we are just a cou-ple of days away from the Super Bowl and they try to do this right here. We just really want to just stay away from that. Coach John Harbaugh also backed Lewis, saying, He told me theres noth-ing to it. Hes told us in the past, hes told us now, that hes never taken any of that stuff, ever. And I believe Ray. So do Lewis teammates. No one has not passed a test and no one has tested positive for anything, so its all speculation, linebacker and special teams standout Brendon Ayanbadejo said. Theres information and disinformation. If you have a little intelligence you can dissect it and keep it mov-ing. The 49ers also find the story hard to believe. I dont think Ray would take any substance, San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis said. Lewis and the Ravens have been taught not to take any medication or drug without first getting the OK from the league or the teams training staff. I will run everything by my trainers to make sure its legal by the NFL, cornerback Corey Graham said. As an NFL player and a professional athlete, you do try a lot of stuff. Im not going to sit here and say you dont. But you do have to run it by your train-ers and people who know whats legal and not legal before you try it. Linebacker Paul Kruger said he learned of the leagues policy on drugs during his first season in the NFL. If there is something youre interested in taking, you have to make sure its cleared and OK, he said. From what I recall from the rookie symposium, the best way is to take it to the trainer and see what they think. Williams said if he is interested in taking some-thing, hell check with the NFLPA. They run it for banned substances and have peo-ple there for us to check everything, Williams said. ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this Oct. 14, 2012, file photo, New York Yankees Alex Ro driguez walks back to the dugout to get a new bat in the second inning of Game 2 of baseba lls American League championship series against the Detroit Tigers in New Y ork.Latest A-Rod troubles have team frustratedBy RONALD BLUMAssociated PressNEW YORK Alex Rodriguez was speaking on a conference call. A huge debacle, he said. Distasteful. That was on Dec. 13, 2007, when he re-signed with the New York Yankees and was discussing his deci-sion 1 1/2 months earlier to become a free agent. Now those words describe how some in the teams front office feel about A-Rods $275 million, 10-year contract. Once considered a player who could shatter the career home run record, Rodriguez has transformed from All-Star to annoyance for some in the Yankees organization. He hasnt played a full season since he was voted his third AL MVP award in 2007, hes out for at least the first half of this year following hip surgery on Jan. 16 and now hes been accused of again receiving performance-enhancing drugs an alle-gation he denies. Even before the charges were published Tuesday by the alternative weekly Miami New Times along with accusations against Melky Cabrera, Nelson Cruz, Gio Gonzalez, Bartolo Colon and Yasmani Grandal, some Yankees executives were wishing Rodriguez would just go away. Speaking on condi-tion of anonymity because the team isnt publicly com-menting on A-Rods latest troubles, they revealed their frustration with the slugger. And they have a big incentive for A-Rod to disappear. If he doesnt play again due to a career-ending injury, about 85 percent of the $114 million hes owed by the team would be covered by insurance, according to one of the executives who spoke on condition of ano-nymity. New York also might be able to free itself from hav-ing the $27.5 million average annual value of Rodriguezs contract count in its luxury tax payroll in each of the next five seasons, a key fac-tor as the Yankees try to get under the $189 million threshold in 2014. If Rodriguez is on the disabled list, his contract is included. But if hes on the voluntary retired list, it would not be part of the total. And if the Yankees fall under that $189 million benchmark, their luxury tax rate would drop from its current 50 percent to 17.5 percent for 2015. That would give them far more flexibility to pursue pitch-ers Clayton Kershaw, Felix Hernandez and Justin Verlander if they become free agents following the 2014 season. New York is not likely to be able to void A-Rods deal. Baseballs drug agree-ment between management and the players association specifies the commission-ers office has all disciplin-ary authority for violations. A-Rods poor health, however, may provide the path to savings for the team. While Rodriguez rebounded from right hip surgery in March 2009 to help the Yankees to their first World Series title since 2000, Dr. Bryan Kelly said recovery from his opera-tion on A-Rods left hip this month will be more complex if for no other reason than it receives more stress because Rodriguez is a right-handed hitter.

DEAR ABBY: I am an adjunct teacher in a small college in the Midwest. For the most part, my students are great, but one breaks my heart. I admire him because he has over-come some incredible obstacles. Last year, he lost a good job and had to drop out for a time. Hes back now, and when I asked about his new job, he said he runs a strip club. At first, I thought he was kidding, but he assured me he manages more than 50 ladies who, at the end of their shift, leave with their lives and their dignity. He doesnt strike me as a com-mon street pimp and I real-ize he took this job to sur-vive. Id like to approach him outside the classroom and offer to help not just him, but his employees. I dont want to come across as a do-gooder, but I dont think this is a great career. I know this letter may make for some funny water cooler conversations, but the truth is people who get sucked into the vice trade have a hard time get-ting out and often come to a bad end. Do I care about my students too much, or am I being judgmental? -WANTS TO HELP IN ILLINOIS DEAR WANTS: I think its a little of both. You are well-meaning, but may have jumped to some incorrect conclu-sions. Managers of adult entertainment clubs are not pimps; they are club managers. Further, just as not all prostitutes are exot-ic dancers, not all exotic dancers are prostitutes. Many are single women working to support them-selves and their children; others may be students trying to pay for their edu-cations. Before trying to rescue any of them, visit the club and see firsthand what is -and is NOT -going on there. If there are underage girls being forced to work there, report it to the police. If not, recognize that they are adults and able to make their own career choices. While I admire your good heart, the indi-viduals youre worried about may not need your assistance. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I want to ask your opinion about something. I work at a donut shop inside a college campus. I have a tip jar, and many customers are generous and share their change with me. My problem is other people who feel entitled to the money in my tip jar. There have been instances when some of them realized they were a few cents short, so they stuck their hands in my tip jar and fished out the coins they wanted. It is not out of ignorance! The jar is clearly labeled Tips -Thank you. If I tell them they cant take the money, they get angry. One lady screamed at me, saying I was selfish, and the money in the jar shouldnt be just for me! What do you think, Abby? Am I too upset over a few cents? Or am I right to feel robbed and stand up for myself when people do this? -DOING MY JOB ON CAMPUS DEAR DOING MY JOB: I dont blame you for feel-ing robbed. Your tips ARE meant just for you, and you have earned every penny your customers left in recognition of your good service. What these people are doing is petty theft. Some establishments avoid this problem by leaving a small container of pennies on the counter. Please sug-gest it to your boss. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont let erratic behavior cloud your vision or send you spinning in the wrong direction. Look at what transpires and size up your situation based on what you can win or lose in the process. Change is necessary but it has to be positive. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Dont let compliments fool you into believing you have everything under control. Someone is trying to manipulate the situation or get something from you. Rethink everyones motives, including your own, before you proceed. Love is in the stars. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Youve got plenty of choices. Use your intel-ligence and separate your emotions from the equa-tion and you will make a suitable decision that will bring you good fortune and greater opportunity. Speak concisely and from the heart. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Go out and have fun with friends. Attend a reunion or contact some-one you havent seen for a long time. Interacting with people from your past will help you see your personal situation clearly, giving you ideas as to what you should do next. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Expand your interests and your friendships. Call in favors and travel to unfa-miliar places that are sure to inspire you to follow through with your goals. Avoid anyone putting demands on you. You need a little time to develop your plans. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can get a lot done, but you must also put time aside for love and your favorite pastimes. All work and no play will lead to someones loss of interest in you. Nurture the rela-tionships that are dear to you. Put love first. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make plans to get out and have some fun. Networking functions will lead to greater prosper-ity. Your intelligent way of expressing your plans for the future will interest someone entrepreneurial.
