By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comThe deaths of 20 children in Newtown, Connecticut shined a bright light on problems that have brewed for decades surrounding mental health services. In Florida, the mental health care industry lacks proper funding and fights a public perception of stigmas that prevent many from seeking the care they need, said one expert with 30 years of experience in the industry. Margarita Labarta, chief executive officer for Meridian Behavioral Healthcare, started working for the company more than 30 years ago, and said shes seen improvements in understanding and treatment of the mentally ill. But a number of problems persist. Florida ranked 49 out of 51 (Washington, D.C. was included in the study) for funding of mental health services, Labarta said. Only Texas and Idaho spend less money per person than Florida. The national average per capita spending is $120 for individu-als with mental illnesses, but in Florida it is $39. Labarta was the speaker at a forum hosted at the Fairfield Hotel and Suites in Lake City where more By MIKE SCHNEIDERAssociated PressORLANDO Former Republican Party of Florida chairman Jim Greer pleaded guilty to theft and money laundering charges Monday just before jury selection in his criminal trial was to begin. Greer pleaded guilty to four counts of theft and a single count of money laundering for funneling money from the Republican Party of Florida to a company he set up with his right-hand man. He could be sentenced to a minimum of 3 1/2 years and a maximum of 35 years in prison at his March 27 sentencing. The plea deal avoids what would could have been an embarrassing trial for the state GOP. Some of Floridas most powerful politicians were scheduled as witnesses, including former Gov. Charlie Crist, former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux, former Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum and several state House and state Senate lead-ers. There were a number of people who did not want this trial to go forward and the trial isnt going forward, said Damon Chase, Greers attorney. Once again, Jim Greer is falling on his sword for a lot of other folks.

Director of the Tourist Development Council Harvey Campbell said the festival and re-enactment have the single largest economic impact of any event of the year and sited a Florida State University survey that says the festival has an economic impact about $4.5 million on the local economy. He said about 40,000 people spend money at local restaurants and hotels during the 2-day festival. Another 20,000 people travel the 18 miles east to the site of the battle reenactment on Sunday.

By NICOLE WINFIELD andVICTOR L. SIMPSONAssociated PressVATICAN CITY Declaring that he lacks the strength to do his job, Pope Benedict XVI announced Monday he will resign Feb. 28 becoming the first pontiff to step down in 600 years. His decision sets the stage for a mid-March conclave to elect a new leader for a Catholic Church in deep turmoil. The 85year-old pope dropped the bombshell in Latin dur-ing a meeting of Vatican cardinals, surprising even his closest collaborators even though he had made clear previously that he would step down if he became too old or infirm to carry on. Benedict called his choice a decision of great importance for the life of the church. Indeed, the move allows the Vatican to hold a conclave before Easter to elect a new pope, since the traditional nine days of mourning that would follow the death of a pope doesnt have to JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter A scene from last years re-enactment.

AROUND FLORIDA Disabled kids program fixed FORT LAUDERDALE Florida health officials said Monday they will assign care coordinators to about 1,600 children with disabilities amid allegations from federal health officials that the state was cutting in-home services and essentially forcing kids into adult nursing homes. An individual care coordinator will work with no more than 40 disabled children at a time who are receiving in-home nursing services and ensure they have continued access to those services. The Agency for Health Care Administration said it will begin the transition within 90 days. Many of the chil-dren require ventilators, feeding tubes and other machinery that is too complicated for parents to monitor. The changes come several months after federal health officials threatened to sue the state and accused it of violating fed-eral law by allowing more than 200 children with dis-abilities and even babies to be kept in nursing homes, often for years. Federal regulators say children languish in facili-ties, sharing common areas with elderly patients and having few interactions with others, rarely leav-ing the nursing homes or going outside. Pier closing to cost 400 jobs ST. PETERSBURG An estimated 400 people will be out of work when the St. Petersburg pier is demol-ished. The Tampa Tribune reports that many of the small retail businesses at the pier are still looking for a place to relocate. Some have decided to close alto-gether, saying they wont find another location in Pinellas County with such high foot traffic and beauti-ful views. In addition to retail shop employees, valet parking attendants, cleaners, secu-rity officers and others will also be back on the job market. St. Petersburg is scheduled to barricade the cause-way in four months and then proceed to demolish the ironic pier. It will be replaced with a futuristic design. The new pier will offer visitors kayaking and paddle boating instead of gelato stands and fortune-telling machines.Scott pushes budget priorities WEST PALM BEACH Gov. Rick Scott sought to build public support for his budget priorities Monday, pressing for teacher raises and a cut to manufactur-ing equipment sales taxes as keys to boosting the economy. Addressing a large gathering of the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches, the Republican governor also called Everglades restoration efforts vital, in part to maintain a clean water source for a growing population. He called to the stage numerous leaders in Everglades cleanup proj-ects, including prominent environmentalists. Scotts $74.2 budget proposal includes a 6 percent hike in spending, including restoring money for some environmental efforts such as the Florida Forever land-buying program. Scott said such a move was only possible because of frugal-ity earlier in his term. We made the tough choices two years ago, we lived within our means, we balanced the budget, we paid down debt, he said, and our economy has come back.Burned man gets 10 years in prison TAMPA A Tampa Bay area man who severe-ly burned himself while trying to set his estranged wife on fire has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. As part of a deal with Hillsborough County prosecutors, 51-year-old Matthew Wong pleaded guilty Monday to attempt-ed murder. The Tampa Bay Times reports that he attended the hearing in a wheelchair. Prosecutors say Wong and his wife had been sep-arated for several months last February when he drove to the Countrywood apartment complex in a rental car and waited for her to leave for work. Authorities say Wong chased his wife and tried to splash gasoline on her. Instead he got the gas all over himself. The woman escaped into an apartment, and he poured gas on the entry-way. When he lit it, fire blew back and engulfed him.Skateboard crash kills boy, 10 ORANGE CITY Authorities say it was a tragic accident when an Orange City boy was struck and killed while rid-ing his skateboard.

No one dominates Grammys LOS ANGELES U nlike last year, when the Grammys became the Adele show, each of the leading nominees in a diverse and eclectic field got a chance to bask in the spotlight of musics biggest night. Fun., whose anthemic and semidark jam We Are Young dominated the charts in 2012, won song of the year. Gotyes massive and oddball pop hit, Somebody I Used to Know, picked up record of the year. And folk-rockers Mumford & Sons won album of the year for their platinum-selling Babel. Fun. also won best new artist, besting Frank Ocean in an upset. The Recording Academy had a clear message at its 55th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night: There are a lot of top acts today with both mainstream appeal and an edge to their music, and the academy was happy to spread the love. One after the other, it was like, And the Black Keys..., so I think we just sort of resigned ourselves to like, last year was Adeles year and this year would be the Black Keys, said lead singer Marcus Mumford, who thought his band would lose album of the year to the Black Keys. Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, the nights big winner with four tro-phies, was one of six acts with the most nominations six each. He won non-classical producer of the year, while the Black Keys earned the best rock album, song and per-formance honors. The Black Keys dominated the rock category, while Jay-Z and Kanye West did the same in the rap area. But the pop, country and R&B categories were a reflection of the top four honors, with no single act dominating. Winners in those cat-egories ranged from Adele to Paul McCartney, Carrie Underwood to the Zac Brown Band, and Usher to Miguel.Bruce Willis receives French acting award PARIS Actor Bruce Willis has been awarded the Commander of the Arts in France for his contribution to cinema.

GREER: Pleads guilty to money laundering, theft Continued From Page 1A FORUM: Mental health issues under scrutiny Continued From Page 1A fancy restaurants and luxury hotels by state party leaders, the drinking habits of Crist and party leaders stab bing each other in the back. Greer, 50, was vice mayor of the small central Florida town of Oviedo when Crist surprisingly picked him to be the state party chairman after he led local efforts to help Crist get elected governor in 2006. He previ ously was the president and CEO of a company that provides training to the hospitality industry on how to comply with alcohol laws. Crist didnt immediately return a phone call seeking comment. The Republican Party of Florida said in a statement that Greer had tried to damage the partys reputation since his arrest in 2010. But the truth is now known that Jim Greer broke the law, stole from the RPOF and our donors, and then said and did everything he could to cover up and distract attention from his crimes, the statement said. Stephen Dobson, an attorney for the party, said Greers acknowledg ment of guilt was what the party wanted all along. Party officials werent worried about potentially embarrassing testi mony at trial, he said. There was absolutely no concern. In fact, a lot of people were looking forward to clearing a lot of these allegations that had been made up, Dobson said outside the courtroom. Today the truth came out. The plea deal was reached at the last minute. Jury selection was set to begin early Monday, but neither Greer nor prosecutors had appeared in the courtroom an hour after the trial was supposed to start. Greer had earlier pleaded not guilty to allegations that he funneled almost $200,000 of party money into a company he had formed with his right-hand man, Delmar Johnson. Johnson had been scheduled to be prosecutors star witness and was granted immunity in exchange for his testimony. Its Finally Over!!! Johnson post ed on Facebook after the deal was announced in court. Greer had said party leaders were aware of the company and that his prosecution was political payback. than 60 local residents, business lead ers, elected officials and law enforce ment talked about mental healthcare. The sheriff, chief of police, city man ager, Lake Shore Hospital officials, business owners and couty residents were able to voice opinions and con cerns about their interactions with the mentally ill. Labarta said about 25 percent of the population suffers from a men tal illness. Nine percent suffer from severe mental illness, Labarta said. Rhonda Sherrod, market CEO for Shands Lake Shore, said every emer gency room in the state sees patients with mental health issues, and by the time the mentally ill enter an emergency room its usually because the persons actions have taken an extreme turn. One thing we see is obviously a lack of resources so that folks can be in treatment and hopefully prevent escalations at all of our (emergency rooms), she said. While most mental illness is identi fied after high school, Labarta said mental illness of students in the pub lic education system is important because at that age children are creatures of the moment, and impul sive, which leads to a belief current conditions will never improve. Those feelings sometimes result in suicide, she said. She said social workers and counseling staff in school districts have fallen prey to budget cuts. When children show signs that they are upset and it goes above a typical phase then someone needs to have the symptoms checked with a mental healthcare professional, she said. Superintendent Terry Huddleston said although the district has seen cuts to the budget, every school in Columbia County has a nurse. Huddleston said there are problems with getting troubled students the help they need, and the problem isnt addressed until the law enforcement becomes involved. Our biggest issue in the school system is once we can identify a person that has a need then there is very few places to refer them where they can get treatment and help, Huddleston said. ... Its hard to get these families and students to ser vices until something happens. He said even when a need is identi fied, its often too expensive for the families to treat because of holes in insurance coverage. Chief of Police Argatha Gilmore said law enforcement receives train ing for the instances when officers encounter mentally ill people. She said the forum did address some of what she believes needs to occur -preventive measures so incidents are less likely to happen. If we deal with preventive mea sures on the front end (and) if we talk about those concerns on the front end then we are all better to give the services that that person needs not just for that night, not for that par ticular incident, but so it would not be a repetitive response we would be giving all the time, she said. Labarta said one of the problems is the public doesnt understand mental illness. Until we understand what the ill nesses really are, its really hard to have a public education and a public health campaign, which is what we really need, Labarta said. Depression and anxiety are the mental illnesses the general popula tion hears the most about and under stands the best, she said. She said about nine percent of people suffer from depression and half of the peo ple with depression develop severe symptoms. About18 percent of the population suffer from anxiety, she said. When we talk about anxiety and depression, we are not talking about the blues or when you feel bad, she said. ... What Im talking about is a level of sadness or a level of anxiety that intervenes with your ability to carry on your day-to-day life as you had before. A more serious mental illnesses called bipolar disorder affects about 2 percent of people, but 84 percent experience the disorder to a severe degree, she said. The other disorder that pops up in the media is schizo phrenia, which is affects one of per cent of the population and usually is quite severe, she said. While recent mass murders by mentally ill individuals have resulted in big headlines, she said most vio lent crimes are not committed by the mentally ill. She said while the mentally ill do committ voilent acts, they are much more likely to be the victim in a violent crime then the perpatrator While its what we hear about, while its certainly something we need to address, its very very hard to predict when a single individual will become violent because of their mental illness, Labarta said. be observed. It will also allow Benedict to hold great sway over the choice of his successor, though he will not vote. He has already hand-picked the bulk of the College of Cardinals the princes of the church who will elect the next pope to guaran tee his conservative legacy and ensure an orthodox future for the church. Without doubt this is a historic moment, said Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, a protege and former theol ogy student of Benedicts who himself is considered a papal contender. Right now, 1.2 billion Catholics the world over are holding their breath. Cardinal Andre Vingt-Trois, the arch bishop of Paris, called the decision a lib erating act for the future, saying popes from now on will no longer feel com pelled to stay on until their death. One could say that in a certain man ner, Pope Benedict XVI broke a taboo, he told reporters in Paris. There are several papal contenders in the wings, but no obvious front-runner the same situation when Benedict was elected pontiff in 2005 after the death of Pope John Paul II. The Vatican stressed that no specific medical condition prompted Benedicts decision, that he remained fully lucid and took his decision independently. Any interference or intervention is alien to his style, Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said. It has been obvious to all that the pope has slowed down significantly in recent years, cutting back his foreign travel and limiting his audiences. He now goes to and from the altar in St. Peters Basilica on a moving plat form to spare him the long walk down the aisle. Occasionally he uses a cane. His 89-year-old brother, Georg Ratzinger, said doctors had recently advised the pope not to take any more trans-Atlantic trips. His age is weighing on him, Ratzinger told the dpa news agency. At this age, my brother wants more rest. Benedict emphasized that carrying out the duties of being pope requires both strength of mind and body. After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths due to an advanced age are no longer suited to the demands of being the pope, he told the cardinals. In order to govern the bark (ship) of St. Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are neces sary strengths which in the last few months, have deteriorated in me, he said. Popes are allowed to resign but church law says the decision must be freely made and properly manifested. Still, only a handful have done it. The last pope to resign was Pope Gregory XII, who stepped down in 1415 in a deal to end the Great Western Schism, a dispute among competing papal claim ants. The most famous resignation was Pope Celestine V in 1294; Dante placed him in hell for it. There are good reasons why others havent followed suit, primarily because of the fear of a schism with two living popes. Lombardi sought to rule out such a scenario, saying church law makes clear that a resigning pope no longer has the right to govern the church. During his tenure, Benedict charted a very conservative course for the church, trying to reawaken Christianity in Europe where it had fallen by the wayside and return the church to its traditional roots, which he felt had been betrayed by an incorrect interpretation of the modern izing reforms of the Second Vatican Council. His efforts, though, were overshad owed by a worldwide clerical sex abuse scandal, communication gaffes that out raged Jews and Muslims alike and, more recently, a scandal over leaked docu ments by his own butler. Many of his stated priorities as pope also fell short: he failed to establish rela tions with China, heal the schism and reunite with the Orthodox Church, or reconcile with a group of breakaway, tra ditionalist Catholics. Still, most Vatican watchers saw his decision as the best thing to do for the church given his diminished capacities. It is an act ultimately of responsibility and love for the church, said the Rev. John Wauck, an Opus Dei priest. POPE: Will step down on Feb. 28 Continued From Page 1A OLUSTEE: Should bring in $4M-plus Continued From Page 1A effect on the local economy. The economic benefit is spread out longer than you would typically think of a weekend festival, he said. Rod Butler, general manager at the Holiday Inn and Suites in Lake City, said the Olustee Battle Festival is Lake Citys signature annual event and he expects many local hotels will be sold out this weekend. Its a huge event for us, Butler said. February is a high-demand month for the Florida hotel industry as residents of northern states flock to Floridas sunny beaches and mild-winter weather. Butler called the festival an added ben efit to an already busy time for the indus try. One of the exciting aspects is to have guests in 1860s time-period costumes walk ing around our hotels, he said. It raises a lot of questions among the folks that are not here for the festival.

OPINION Tuesday, February 12, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A WASHINGTON A s president, Ronald Reagan issued his 11th com-mandment that Republicans should not speak ill of other members of the party. But the edict has languished, and it wont be restored unless the GOP ends its internecine warfare over what is more important: winning elections or being philosophically pure. It is not difficult to foresee a time when the ultras break entirely from the moderates and bring about an upheaval, form-ing a permanent minority that stays true to its ideol-ogy but cant further it. That already has started. Anyone with the least bit of interest in politics knows that bad candidates may find enough support to defeat good ones in primary elections but cer-tainly not to win the elec-tion that counts. That happened in the last two elections. Unless the Republican mainstreamers can some-how pitch the Tea Party movement overboard, its likely to recur two years from now. Republican candidates had a chance of gaining dramatically in the Senate last time out but nominated candidates whose wild, embarrassing ideas cost them the election. In Indiana, for instance, the Republican Party paid an enormous price. County chairmen who were upset over Richard Lugars support for the Obama administrations economic bailout sent the prestigious, 36-year incumbent packing and then lost the seat when the obscure candidate of their choice, Richard Mourdock, alienated half of the nations women. The exercise duplicated one in Missouri, where Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill was predicted to lose until her GOP opponent, Todd Akin, started the anti-woman ball rolling with some illiterate, bewildering non-sense about the results of rape. In a conversation with several true believers just before the presi-dential election, I was amazed that they actually believed Mitt Romney would win. Theyd become so convinced of the righteousness of their beliefs that they had lost touch with reality. In a biennial pick em contest, I won the money for a second time. When asked how, I explained that Id merely chosen with my head, not my emotions. These werent political novices, either. Joining me in shaking his head was a former chair-man of the Republican Party. Now former White House political guru Karl Rove has incurred the wrath of the far right by taking on turn-back-the-clock zealots. He and others have begun the Conservative Victory Project, an effort to select Republican can-didates with a real chance of winning. One of the people Rove wont be supporting is Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia, who has announced he wants to run for the seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Chambliss is retiring at the end of next year rather than waiting to be shoved out by the Tea Party. For those who havent been paying attention, Broun is the doctor con-gressman who says that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang theory are lies straight out of hell. Move over, Mourdock and Akin. You were last years embarrassments. Could this end up splitting the GOP so badly that it cant recover as a major party? Should this war continue over what increasingly seems like the last haven for old white men, with little appeal to the overwhelm-ing majority in a chang-ing demographic? Would that lead to a third party, dramatically altering the nations two-party politi-cal model? It was forged following the 1850s cre-ation of the Republican Party and its first presi-dential candidate, John C. Fremont. It is far too early for such hysterical predic-tions. But if there is any indication that such a trauma may be immi-nent, its the fact that two Republican speakers Florida Sen. Marco Rubio for the establishment and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul for the Tea Party are scheduled to give the rebuttal to President Barack Obamas State of the Union address Tuesday. That should tell us something and it just might not be good news for the Grand Old Party come next years elec-tions.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman T he Sunshine State has long been just that when it comes to the publics right to know. Our public-records and open-meetings laws are among the best in the nation, and go far in keep-ing public officials from operating out of sight of the people they were elected or appointed to serve. The one glaring omission in the Sunshine Law? While Floridians have a right to be present at public meetings, they do not have a statutory right to speak there. The state supreme court affirmed this in 2010, refusing to hear an appeal of a lower-court ruling to that effect. State Sen. Joe Negron (R-Stuart) is out to change that. Negron, who has tried before and failed, is once again sponsoring legislation requiring that local boards city councils, county commissions, zoning boards and the like give citizens in attendance a reasonable opportunity to be heard. Its a fine idea.Being seen but not heard isnt enough. Floridians who attend public meetings should also have the right, within reason, to make comments relevant to the discus-sion at hand. But even if Negrons bill fails, the Columbia County Commission has shown it recognizes the importance of public participation at its meetings. Up until last Thursday, citizens had five minutes each to offer relevant comments at the start of commission meetings. With a rule change finalized just five days back, citizens now have two minutes each to address commissioners at the end of meetings as well. Two minutes may not sound like much, but it should be plenty long for folks to let their elected officials know, in brief, just how they feel about the issues of the day. Its a good move on the part of commissioners. A step in the right direction Can Republicans bridge divide?

BY EMAIL: email@example.comT his famous line of the cynical Captain Renault to nightclub manager Rick in the classic film Casablanca comes to mind in reflecting on the practices of American credit rating agencies: I am shocked, shocked to find ... gam-bling. ... Standard & Poors Corp., arguably the preeminent credit rating com-pany, was formally charged Monday with large-scale fraud. Attorney General Eric Holder announced civil, not criminal, federal prosecution for $5 billion in damages for allegedly falsely inflating the value of mort-gage-backed investments. The Feds focus on the period of March to October 2007, just before the U.S. mortgage securi-ties markets failure touched off the global financial collapse and severe recession. The indictment alleges warnings from the industrys own analysts were ignored for at least three years. Lead S&P attorney Floyd Abrams was primed and responded imme-diately that his client was being unfairly singled out. He argues other firms, and indeed the Treasury Department, were guilty of similar optimism. This lawyers shock was not heard round the world, partly because the wrongdoing of others does not absolve S&P. S&P has also been conducting preemptive maneuvers. In a historic measure in August 2011, the firm downgraded the United States cred-itworthiness from the top AAA rat-ing. Meanwhile, global demand for U.S. government bonds increased even as the downgrade made inter-national news. Company officials declared the downgrade reflected the U.S. gov-ernments high and growing deficit and debt levels and doubts about the capacity and will to correct the situation. With moralistic solemnity, the credit crunchers announced this was the first time in history their firm has moved the U.S. down from AAA. When a National Public Radio interviewer at the time asked a Standard & Poors executive about shocking lapses in private-sector evaluation, the executive said it was handled by another part of the com-pany. In Casablanca vernacular, the S&P guy played dumb and passed the buck. Which brings us to President Harry Truman, who displayed a sign on his desk in the Oval Office stating The Buck Stops Here. Truman and other Allied leaders of that time faced seemingly endless challenges, including the Cold War, which began soon after the unconditional sur-renders of Germany and Japan, the Korean War, and U.S. debt greater than today. Yet S&P did not downgrade the United States at that time. Why not?Because equating the U.S. national government, which commands vast actual and potential assets, with the balance sheets of even enormous commercial corporations is absurd. In that turbulent earlier time, national unity was essential. A credit ratings company that downgraded our government would have rightly been ostracized. Financial services firms today resent re-regulation by Washington and strike back by appealing to gen-eral public cynicism regarding much of government, especially Congress. The Justice Department is avoiding criminal charges. Ratings compa-nies including S&P should seize this opportunity to reform their practices. Q Arthur I.

From staff reportsLIVE OAK Kevin Wright, a professional engineer at the Suwannee River Water Management District, is one of 13 young engineers across the nation nominated by the American Society of Agriculture and Biological Engineers (ASABE) for the National Engineers Week Foundation New Faces of Engineering 2013. Of that group, Wright was among five selected to represent their profession as top engi-neers. The New Faces of Engineering program high-lights the interesting and unique work of young engi-neers. Young engineers two to five years out of college are the focus of the pro-gram. Wright is the first ASABE candidate to be selected in the top five twice. He was previously selected in 2010. National Engineers Week takes place Feb. 17-23. The ASABE members, all 30 years or younger, have distinguished them-selves with outstanding, early-career achievements that serve as an inspiration to their peers and to the future engineers who will follow in their footsteps, said Dolores Landeck, of the ASABE. Wright oversees the Districts Ag Team that helps agricultural opera-tions needing assistance with water use permitting, environmental resource permitting, best management practices, and the Districts agricultural cost-share partnership pro-gram. The Ag Team helps to simplify and streamline the permitting process and assists growers in comply-ing with total maximum daily loads requirements and Basin Management Action Plans established by the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation. It is an honor to be nominated for the New Faces of Engineering program, and I would like to thank the District for supporting my continued education and allowing my diverse workload, said Wright. Our nation needs young engineers to help solve the problems our country will face in the future.

Public schools lose millions to crooked tutors, cheatersBy MICHAEL LAFORGIATampa Bay TimesTAMPA When Yolanda Axson wasnt watching, a pot of hot water spilled into a crib at her day care in Orlando, scald-ing a 4-month-old boy. She served probation for felony child neglect and then, barred from child care, found a less regulat-ed line of work. She start-ed a company to earn tax dollars tutoring poor kids in Floridas failing schools. When state officials saw Axsons name on an application for the govern-ment tutoring program, they didnt hesitate. They stamped their approval, and her business, Busy BEE Services, went to work tutoring Floridas neediest children. The cost to taxpayers per student? At least $60 an hour. Axsons case points to a larger problem with man-dated tutoring in Florida: The program pays pub-lic money to people with criminal records, and to cheaters and profiteers who operate virtually unchecked by state regula-tors. In a three-month investigation, the Tampa Bay Times examined invoice records from 59 school dis-tricts, conducted dozens of interviews and reviewed thousands of pages of complaint reports, audits and other documents, and found: Florida school districts paid at least $7 million last year to tutoring companies run by people with crimi-nal records. Among those who have headed stateapproved tutoring firms are a rapist, thieves and drug users. In more than 40 cases across the state, tutoring companies have faked stu-dent sign-up sheets or billed for tutoring that never hap-pened. Companies that overcharged for tutoring earned $7 million last year alone. The program is riddled with conflicts of interest. In one county last year, more than 100 teachers moonlighted as tutors of their own students, flout-ing state ethics rules by positioning themselves to steer kids toward their sec-ondary employers. Parents have billed for tutoring their own children and the head of a small North Florida school system ran a tutoring company that did business with neigh-boring school districts. Dozens of tutoring firms have broken federal rules by luring impover-ished kids to sign up with promises of bicycles, gift cards and computers. Others have sent school administrators on golf out-ings or sponsored retreats for district officials who administer tutoring con-tracts. Despite uncovering millions of dollars in potential fraud and documenting flagrant violations, school districts almost never for-ward cases to law enforce-ment. And state education officials charged with policing the program are missing chances to cut back on fraud and waste. Floridas Department of Education doesnt screen backgrounds of the people who profit from subsidized tutoring, and it seldom cracks down on companies accused of improper bill-ing, illegal marketing and low-quality tutoring. Overwhelmingly, the state has allowed these companies to continue earning tax dollars year after year. After nearly a decade, Florida last year won a waiver from the federal law that requires private tutoring. The state was set to shut down the program when lobbyists for the tutoring industry stepped in. They convinced state lawmakers to keep the money flowing. Florida has spent $192 million on private tutor-ing firms in the past two years. The companies are paid at a dramatically higher rate than conventional public schools. In the 2009-10 school year, the most recent period for which numbers are available, the state spent $9,981 per stu-dent about $11 an hour. Florida spent $58 an hour, more than five times as much, on private tutoring. Florida schools officials say the money could have paid for extended school days or extra instruction in high-poverty schools. Tutoring companies, many of which meet high standards and offer quality instruction, say they pro-vide a needed service. But researchers disagree over whether gov-ernment-funded tutor-ing is worth the money. Studies are inconclusive or contradictory. The debate often takes on political undertones, with Republicans in favor of subsidized tutoring known in education jar-gon as supplemental edu-cational services and Democrats against it. In May, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan weighed in, telling a group of Florida busi-nesspeople that, when it comes to subsidized tutor-ing firms, there never has been accountability for results. The George W. Bush administration kicked off a gold rush in 2001 when, as part of its landmark edu-cation reform, No Child Left Behind, it required states to spend hundreds of millions of federal dol-lars on private tutoring for poor children. The law adopted with bipartisan support forced districts to hire tutors at high-pov-erty schools that failed to improve test scores two years in a row. To pay for it, districts were to tap Title I money, federal funds set aside for elevating impoverished kids. A new industry was born. Hundreds of companies were formed in Florida alone. The bulk of them were for-profit. Each year more companies lined up, lured by the promise of per-child fees that aver-aged about $60 an hour. With so much money at stake, providers have offered children bicycles, laptops and other prizes for signing up. They have followed kids from bus stops and mobbed parents in school parking lots.

Students started off the week by helping Florida reach a goal of 20 million minutes read. Each class-room teacher gave the students at least 20 extra minutes of reading time to help meet this goal. Each day there were prizes given away to classes that played Guess That Book. Classes also created a poster of their favorite book for display in the media center. Mrs. Cembruch still has the posters dis-played in the media center. Come by and see them.Congratulations to Mrs. Cunninghams fifth-grade classroom, they came the closest to guessing the number of books in the media center. CCE concluded the week by dressing like characters from their favorite books. Students and adults did a fantastic job. They shared their costumes in a character parade on Friday.Great gradesCongratulations to these students that had a 100 percent average for Accelerated Reader for the second nine weeks: Tucker Boggs Marie Henderson, Jacob Feagle, Dalton Morris, Gracie Harris and Lon Maggard.Broadcast teamWe are fortunate at Columbia City Elementary to have a state-of-theart broadcast studio.

Military weighs cutbacks, shifts in drone programs By LOLITA C. BALDOR Associated Press LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Va. The Pentagon for the first time is consid ering scaling back the massive buildup of drones it has overseen in the past few years, both to save money and to adapt to changing security threats and an increased focus on Asia as the Afghanistan war winds down. Air Force leaders are saying the mili tary may already have enough unmanned aircraft systems to wage the wars of the future. And the Pentagons shift to Asia will require a new mix of drones and other aircraft because countries in that region are better able to detect unmanned ver sions and shoot them down. If the Pentagon does slow the huge building and deployment program, which was ordered several years ago by thenDefense Secretary Robert Gates, it wont affect the CIA drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere against terror sus pects. Those strikes were brought center stage last week during the confirmation hearing for White House counterterror chief John Brennan, President Barack Obamas pick to lead the CIA.

She texted me No. 3. Wow. Thats crazy, Gamble said. I didnt even know what she was talking about. For the sixth-year senior, the Hurricanes unprece-dented achievement was a little tough to grasp. They were ranked behind only No. 1 Indiana and No. 2 Duke in Mondays poll, and received a school-record 17 first-place votes. The Hurricanes (19-3, 10-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) had never pre-viously been ranked higher than No. 8. Last week they achieved that spot for the first time since 1960. Ive never really thought that Miami could be a top 10 program, senior Reggie Miami in midst of best season in teams history. CANES continued on 3B

It had been over a month since a team managed to stay on top, and Indiana broke that trend despite losing a game last week, leading Crean to bring up auto racing. I had a good friend tell me that in-season rankings are the barometer of rep-resenting what lane youre in and the direction and how far you are moving towards your goals, Crean said Monday. We want to stay in the left lane and keep working on our team and pace because we know there are quite a few others in the left lane as well. The Hoosiers (21-3) lost to Illinois on a last-sec-ond basket Thursday but rebounded with a win at then-No.10 Ohio State on Sunday. In a week when four of the top five teams and six of the top 10 lost, it was enough to keep the No. 1 ranking. They were really disappointed on Thursday night. And instead of carrying that disappointment into a woe is me mentality, they really did trigger how to get better. And I think it was in the sense of closing games, Crean said. I think there was a different level, a sense of urgency because of the way we didnt finish it off, combined with the fact that we knew we were playing a team that it is outstand-ing. This ends a stretch of five consecutive weeks with a new No. 1, two weeks short of the longest such stretch in 1993-94. Duke started the run followed by Louisville, Duke again, Michigan and Indiana. The Hoosiers received 26 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel Monday, while Duke, the only member of the top five not to lose last week, moved up two spots to second after getting 20 first-place votes. The last time a No. 1 team lost and kept the ranking the next week was the final poll of last season. Kentucky fell to Vanderbilt in the Southeastern Conference tournament championship game, but Nos. 2-4 also went down that week, so the Wildcats were No. 1 heading into the NCAA tournament. Miami, which received 17 No. 1 votes, jumped from eighth to No. 3, the Hurricanes highest rank-ing ever. Ive never really thought that Miami could be a top 10 program, cen-ter Reggie Johnson said. I didnt think wed be here in February. Its surreal. The votes are cool, but weve still got work to do. The Hurricanes are the last team from a major con-ference to still be unbeaten in league play. Its what every program strives for, coach Jim Larranaga said. Carolina and Duke have this every year. Its a little different for us. These guys are hungry. They remain very, very humble. Michigan dropped one spot to fourth, while Gonzaga, which got the other two first-place votes, moved up one spot to fifth. Syracuse was sixth, followed by Florida, Michigan State, Arizona and Kansas State. Along with Indiana and Ohio State, the other top 10 teams to lose last week were No. 2 Florida, No. 3 Michigan, No. 5 Kansas and No. 7 Arizona. There were four newcomers to the rankings: No. 20 Wisconsin, No. 22 Memphis, No. 24 Colorado State and No. 25 Kentucky. Wisconsin, Memphis and Kentucky, the defending national champion, were all ranked early in the sea-son, while Colorado State makes it first appearance in the poll since March 9, 1954. They replace Creighton, Cincinnati, Minnesota and Missouri, the only one of the four not to lose two games last week.
3Bsports CANES: Not worried about ranking Continued From Page 1BJohnson said. I didnt think wed be here in February. Its surreal. Miami cracked the Top 25 three weeks ago and has since enjoyed a rapid rise, thanks to a succession of impressive victories and a flurry of losses by highly ranked teams. With the Hurricanes win Saturday over North Carolina, they became the first ACC team ever to beat both the Tar Heels and Duke by at least 25 points in the same season. The Hurricanes are so good theyve even started to quibble that their rank-ing isnt high enough. It does feel strange Duke is still ahead of our team, Johnson said. I feel like if the polls really legit, we should be ranked in front of them. Coach Jim Larranaga described the Top 25 as a popularity contest and a beauty contest. But he also said the high ranking will benefit the university and give his program a long-term boost. Larranaga said he texted recruiting prospects with the news of the latest rank-ing and received congratu-lations from every one. We had an eighth-grader commit, the coach said with a grin. We told him its a little too early. Larranaga said the Hurricanes are handling success and attention well in part because theyre a senior-laden team. Miami takes an 11-game winning streak into Wednesdays game at Florida State, and several players said they expect the games to start getting tougher. The target on our back is bigger than it ever was, Gamble said. Were going to get everybodys best shot, guard Shane Larkin added. Larkins only a sophomore, but Miamis other four starters are seniors who are well aware the programs in uncharted ter-ritory. So is Larranaga, who is in his second season with Miami after leading George Mason to the Final Four in 2006. The Hurricanes have already set a school record for ACC victories in a sea-son, and the last time they received any votes for No. 1 was in March 1960. This is what every program strives for, Larranaga said. Carolina and Duke have this every year. Its a little different for us. The buzz the Hurricanes are creating is a big change for the long-overlooked pro-gram. Mondays practice drew a large media con-tingent, and three of the past four home games have been sellouts. Im at the shopping mall and people are coming up to me, Hey, man, Im proud of you guys. Keep it up, Johnson said.

Vick, who was injured and inconsistent last sea-son, eventually giving way to rookie Nick Foles, now has a three-year contract, and will com-pete with Foles over the next nine months to see who runs new coach Chip Kellys offense this sea-son. Vick, who returned to start the season finale vs. the New York Giants in December because Foles was injured, finished the season with 2,362 yards passing, 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. The Eagles finished 4-12 and in last place in the NFC East. Andy Reid was fired as coach the day after the season ended, and Kelly was hired last month. Vick, who will be 33 when next season begins, is still elusive when healthy, and seems equipped to run Kellys aggressive, up-tempo offense that he is bringing to the Eagles from Oregon. He wanted to be here, Kelly said Monday in his first meeting with the media following his open-ing press conference on Jan. 17. I had never met him before. The one thing that attracted me to him, is Michael is a competitor. Nick is, too. You want guys who want to compete. Vick was signed by Philadelphia in 2009, and became the starter in 2010. He led the Eagles that sea-son to an NFC East title, and a memorable 38-31 December win over the Giants in which he rallied the team from a 21-point deficit. There are questions, of course, about his durabil-ity and his age, as he now seems far removed from that resurgent 2010 sea-son. He finished that year with 3,018 yards passing, 676 yards rushing and 30 total touchdowns. Hes younger than (Dallas quarterback) Tony Romo, and hes right about the same age as (Giants quarterback) Eli Manning, Kelly said. The only reason I say that is because I told Michael that this morning, and he didnt know. Vick only played in 10 games last season, and in the finale vs. New York, he had a quarterback rating of just 68.4 en route to a 42-7 loss. I looked at the films, and studied the tape. When you look at Michael, its his toughness. That can-not be overrated at all, Kelly said. We looked at his skillset. He still has that skillset. He can still throw the football. Hes got an unbelievable release, and its our job as coaches to make sure he can get the ball out quickly. All told, Vick has started 35 games for Philadelphia over the last three seasons. Foles has started six. The Eagles scored just 280 points last season as they endured an eightand a three-game losing streak. Only Arizona (250) scored fewer in the NFC. When asked which quarterback would work with the first-team offense in training camp, Kelly smiled and quickly showed hes going to be able to handle the Philadelphia media just fine. Well go alphabetical, he said with a grin. First name? Last name? Well flip a coin.While James sizzles Wade generates Heat Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2013 3B By TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI Dwyane Wade got the ball on the left wing, darted toward the basket, leaped to avoid Dwight Howard and dunked from the right side of the rim. A year ago, a play like that one from Sunday might have been impossible for Wade. Now, hes looking good as new, at maybe the perfect time for the surging Miami Heat. LeBron James might be the best player in the world and might be playing like the best player in the world, but hes hardly having to carry the entire load for the Heat these days. While James is on a history-making run of scor-ing at least 30 points and shooting at least 60 percent in Miamis last five games all wins Wade is averaging 24.8 points on better than 50 percent shooting over that same stretch. And whats weird is, it almost seems as if Wade is doing it qui-etly. I know what a problem he is, said the Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant, who watched Wade score 30 in a Heat win on Sunday. You try to focus in on him as much as you can. They have two very, very special players. Two of the best that weve seen. Dwyane obviously is dealing with injuries starting the year, but he seems to be rounding into form and you saw that breakaway dunk he had thats the younger D-Wade. During this Miami winning streak, James and Wade are com-bining to average 55.8 points a game. Over the same time span, no other NBA 1-2 punch was close. Tony Parker and Danny Green combined to average 49.3 points for San Antonio. Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire averaged 48.8 points for the New York Knicks. James Harden and Jeremy Lin scored 47.1 per game for Houston. And while the rest of the NBA shot 46 percent dur-ing that stretch, the Heat shot 52 percent. Sure, James is on an unbelievable roll. At least some of the credit for that, he believes, goes to Wade for being hot at the same time. His legs are under him. You can tell on his jump shot, he is fin-ishing up-top and he is penetrat-ing and getting to the rim, too, James said after Wades 30-point showing Sunday. He is getting healthier and healthier each and every day, each and every game. It is a huge plus for our team and I know how great he feels right now. Miami closes its homestand Tuesday against Portland, then is at Oklahoma City for a 2012 NBA Finals rematch before heading into the All-Star break. And part of the reason why Wade is hurting opponents is because hes hurting less than he has in the past. Wade said months ago that he figured off-season knee surgery would keep him from getting to his best level until about the All-Star break. Here comes that timeframe, and Wade is flying. Feeling good, Wade said. Feeling better. Ive come in and gotten my work in, taken care of my body and its working. Wade is averaging 21.1 points for the season, and if he stays there his average will have dropped for the fourth straight year after a career-best 30.2-point-per-game clip in 2008-09. And that scoring dip has prompted many, including one-time Wade com-mercial co-star and now often-critic Charles Barkley, to say the 10th-year guard is clearly in a career decline. Wade publicly laughs off that talk, yet privately seethes about some of that criticism. While his scoring has dipped each year, so have his shots per game some-thing that he knew would happen when he helped lure James and Chris Bosh to Miami in the sum-mer of 2010. Wade famously left a huge bit of salary about $17 million over the lifespan of his contract on the Heat bargaining table that summer, providing the team with flexibility to not only close the deals with James and Bosh but to add other players. James and Bosh also took less money than they would have been entitled to under the terms of the past collec-tive bargaining agreement. But Wade didnt just sacrifice cash that summer. The way he sees it, he also sacrificed stats. And if hes the Robin to James Batman right now, and the Heat are winning, then Wades fine with that arrangement. It takes pressure off all of us, Wade said. Obviously, Chris, myself and all these guys, weve played without a guy like that before and weve done pretty good. But when hes playing the way he is, it makes our job a little easier. And vice versa when were playing the way we are, it makes his job a little easier. So we all work for each other. James is getting almost all the attention right now, and thats certainly deserved. Still, to him, the notion that Wade is an afterthought in Miami now is downright comical. You guys overlook him, said James, the NBAs reigning MVP. We understand how great he is.
DEAR ABBY: I just found out that my girl-friend of nearly four years had an abortion when she was in high school. I overheard her during a conversation she was having with someone. I later asked her what was implied when the name of her ex-boyfriend from high school was brought up. She proceeded to tell me what had happened and then said, I never told you that? My reaction is feelings of disgust, betrayal and of having been lied to. Am I overreacting or are my feelings warranted? -FEELS BETRAYED IN CONNECTICUT DEAR FEELS BETRAYED: That depends upon whether you ever had a conversation with your girlfriend about her sexual history during which you were supposed to tell each other every-thing. If so, then the omis-sion was deliberate. If not, she was under no obliga-tion to reveal that she had terminated a pregnancy during high school. Abortion is a deeply personal and often complex decision for women. Many do not feel that it is some-thing to celebrate and may not be comfortable sharing that they have had one. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My husband gives me gift cards for my birthday and spe-cial occasions, but with it comes, I want to know everything you buy! I tell him its a gift and I shouldnt HAVE to tell him what I use it for. If I do tell him what I bought, he invariably says, Did you really need that? So whos right -he or I? -RELUCTANT RECIPIENT IN ALASKA DEAR RELUCTANT RECIPIENT: You are, for the reason you stated. The object of a gift is to bring pleasure, and there are few comments your husband could make that would put a bigger damper on your purchase than, Do you really need that? The next time he asks what you bought, tell him, None of your beeswax! ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My stepmother was in a fatal car accident. She was very dear to me. A few days after the funeral, Dad told me the best way to handle grief is to clean house -so we began cleaning house like crazy, stopping to cry every now and then. We ran out of towels, so I went to fetch more from the guest bathroom where they are kept. Seeing a penny on the sink, I grabbed it and threw it in the wastebasket. (I won-dered where it had come from because I hadnt noticed it there earlier in the day.) Suddenly, I remembered the letters in your column from people saying if you find a penny after you have lost a loved one, it means they are sending you a message of love from heaven. I quickly reached into the wastebasket to retrieve the penny, praying that it was newly minted -and it was! I showed it to Dad, explaining the significance, and we both had a good cry. We keep it in my stepmothers china cabinet to remind us that love is eternal. To us, that penny is priceless. -READER IN CONNECTICUT DEAR READER: To me your EXPERIENCE is priceless.
