From staff reportsR. L. Lewis, Jr., one of the original painters known as the Highwaymen, will be speaking about and demonstrat-ing his art at 2 p.m. Thursday at the Florida Gateway College Allied Health Auditorium. The public is invited. The Highwaymen were AfricanAmerican artists who painted Florida landscapes during the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. Often their work was not allowed in museums or galleries, so they sold their art from small shops or even from their cars, along the Florida coast. Their distinctive paintings had great crossover appeal for buyers and collectors, one of whom coined the phrase in 1995 that signified their mobile lifestyle the Highwaymen. They simply wanted to paint themes and scenes that people could relate to. Landscapes of the St Johns River or the Indian River evoked familiar scenes that people often passed in their cars but may not have stopped to look at in depth. Their paintings show a vibrant Florida that is alive with color. Of the original 26 Highwaymen, Lewis is one of 18 who are still alive, and only 13 or 14 are still painting. Lewis has further distinguished himself by teaching art to learners of all ages. He has also been one of the most prolific of the Highwaymen painters, with many of his paintings displayed across the nation. Lewis was elected into the Florida Artist Hall of Fame in 1994.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2013 | YOUR COMMUNI TY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | 75¢ Obama: Nation strong, needs unity By JULIE PACEAP White House CorrespondentWASHINGTON Uncompromising and politically emboldened, President Barack Obama urged a deeply divided Congress Tuesday night to embrace his plans to use govern-ment money to create jobs and strengthen the nations middle class. He declared Republican ideas for reducing the deficit even worse than the unpalat-able deals Washington had to stomach during his first term. In his first State of the Union address since winning re-elec-tion, Obama conceded eco-nomic revival is an unfinished task, but he claimed clear progress and said he prepared to build on it as he embarks on four more years in office. We have cleared away the rubble of crisis, and we can say with renewed confidence that the state of our union is strong, Obama said in an hour-long address to a joint session of Congress and a television audience of millions. Yet with unemployment persistently high and consumer confidence falling, the economy remains a vulnerability for Obama and could disrupt his plans for pursuing a broader agenda, including immigration overhaul, stricter gun laws and climate change legislation. Obama also announced new steps to reduce the U.S. mili-tary footprint abroad, with 34,000 IT CAN WAIT JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterAnthony Cason (from right), a trainer with the Florida High way Patrol, watches as FHP public affairs officer Tracy H isler-Pace conducts a mock field sobriety test on Columbia High School student Selena Stan forth, 16, during the Driving with C.A.R.E (Courtesy, Attention, R esponsibility, Experience) program on Tuesday.

By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comA car loaded with four teenagers is headed down a two-way road. Suddenly, the young woman driving receives a text message. A young man in the back smiles, snatches the phone and she turns around. Give it back, she says.As she snaps her head back around to look at the road, its too late. The next frame of a commercial promoting safe driving shows the front of an 18-wheeler barreling head-on at the car loaded with teenagers. The last frame displayed the words, When driving there are no makeup tests. Its a real life scenario, Anthony Cason said as he explained the dangers of texting while driving Tuesday morning at Columbia High School. All four young adults were killed after a 18wheeler crashed head-on into a car because the young driver was distracted by a tug-of-war with a cell phone. Cason works for the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles in the bureau of learning and development.

Calif. hunt ends in fire Suspect didnt leave burning cabin; shot heard.By GILLIAN FLACCUSand TAMI ABDOLLAHAssociated PressBIG BEAR, Calif. The extraordinary manhunt for the former Los Angeles police offi-cer suspect-ed of three murders converged Tuesday on a moun-tain cabin where he was believed to have barricaded himself inside, engaged in a shootout that killed a deputy and then never emerged as the home went up in flames. A single gunshot was heard from within, and a charred body was found inside.

AROUND FLORIDA New allegations at juvenile prison MILTON More abuse has been alleged at a now-closed Florida Panhandle juvenile prison. Authorities tell the Pensacola News-Journa that Ernest Lerenza Parker of Milton surrendered Monday at the Santa Rosa County jail. Parker had been a mental health technician at the Milton Girls Juvenile Residential Facility. He faces numerous charges, including battery and sexual assault. Hes being held on more than $1 mil-lion bond. Jail records dont show whether he has an attorney. A sheriffs report says six girls told investigators that they had been afraid to report Parker for abuse. The allegations against Parker stemmed from a Florida Department of Children and Families investigation that began after a guard at the same facility was caught on video battering a teenage inmate. The state closed the facility in December.Developer pleads guilty in scheme PENSACOLA A land developer has pleaded guilty to a charge of mak-ing a false statement to federal election officials. Destin Developer Jay Odom told a federal judge Tuesday that he engineered a scheme to circumvent federal election laws and funnel money to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee during Huckabees 2007 presiden-tial run. Prosecutors agreed to drop a charge of violating election laws in exchange for Odom pleading guilty to making false statements. Odom faces up to five years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines at an April 23 hearing. Odoms dealings with former Republican Florida House Speaker Ray Sansom helped prompt Sansoms resignation after allegations surfaced that Sansom used state money to build an airplane han-gar for Odom. Criminal charges in that case were eventually dropped.Doctor agrees to fraud settlement MIAMI A southwest Florida dermatologist has agreed to pay $26.1 million to settle Medicare fraud allegations. The U.S. Justice Department announced Dr. Steven J. Wassermans settlement Monday. Officials say Wasserman entered into an illegal kick-back arrangement in or around 1997 with Tampa Pathology Laboratory and its owner, Dr. Jose SuarezHoyos, in an effort to increase the labs refer-ral business. Wasserman was also accused of per-forming thousands of unnecessary skin surger-ies known as adjacent tis-sue transfers on Medicare beneficiaries in order to obtain the reimbursement for them, not because they were medically necessary. Dr. Alan Freedman, a former Tampa Pathology Laboratory who brought forth the initial allegations, will receive about $4 mil-lion of the settlement. Officials previously settled with SuarezHoyos and Tampa Pathology Laboratory for $950,000.House committee OKs campaign bill TALLAHASSEE The political committees critics say are often abused by lawmakers would be outlawed while campaign contribution limits would increase from $500 to $10,000 under a House bill that received its first approval Monday. The House Ethics and Elections Subcommittee voted 10-2 to approve the bill that would ban committees of continu-ous existence, or CCEs, which critics say some lawmakers abuse by tak-ing huge donations from lobbyists and other donors and spending it on meals, travel and entertaining that has little to do with politi-cal activity. At the same time, it gives candidates and other types of political committees the ability to gather more money by raising contribution limits significantly. Candidates and committees, how-ever, would have to report contributions and expen-ditures more frequently. Instead of quarterly report-ing, campaign finance reports would have to be filed monthly. The frequency changes to every week 60 days before an election and then daily the last 10 days before an election.Severe weather drill postponed TALLAHASSEE Florida emergency management officials are delaying a statewide tor-nado drill due to severe weather that could include real tornadoes. The drill was scheduled for Wednesday as part of Severe Weather Awareness Week in Florida. Officials say they are rescheduling it for Friday because of hazardous weather fore-cast for north Florida and the Panhandle.

Cruz publicist Javier Giner told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the Spanish actress is pregnant. He declined to provide any further details, including when the baby is due. The 38-year-old Cruz and 43-yearold Bardem had their first child, a boy called Leo, in January 2011. The couple became romantically involved after appearing together in Woody Allens 2008 film Vicky Cristina Barcelona and later mar-ried.Gatecrasher says stunt was spontaneous LOS ANGELES The man who was arrested after attempting to upstage Adele at Sundays Grammy Awards has a new message for the singer: help me. Vitalii Sediuk says his appear-ance onstage at the Grammys was a spontaneous event and that he is only now realizing that it might have legal consequences for him. The Ukrainian journalist, who did not have a ticket to the awards show, spent several hours in police custody before being released with a trespassing citation and a March 4 court date. Sediuk briefly took the microphone Sunday night before Adele accepted her award. He only got a few words out before Jennifer Lopez shooed him away. It was spontaneous, Sediuk said in a telephone interview Tuesday. It was not planned of course He said he realizes now that he may be banned from covering award shows, which would be problematic for a reporter whos already got a reputation for awkward celebrity encounters. Last year, Will Smith slapped Sediuk, 24, after he tried to kiss him on a red carpet, and he drew Madonnas ire a year earlier by presenting her a bouquet of flowers she hated. He said he hopes that Adele, who called Lopez her good luck charm at Sundays show, will help him out of his latest mess. Oh Adele. Help me not to go to jail, Sediuk said. He said he arrived at the show in a car that had access to the red carpet, and he did a few interviews before attempting to follow Nicole Kidman into the show. She stopped to talk to reporters and he then followed in Katy Perry all without a guard ever stopping him to ask for a ticket. Actor John Kerr, Tony winner, dies PASADENA, Calif. John Kerr, the stage and film actor whose credits include the movie South Pacific, the thriller The Pit and the Pendulum and a Tony Award-win-ning turn in Tea and Sympathy, has died. He was 81. Kerr died Saturday of heart failure at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena, his son Michael said. He was perhaps best known for playing a sensitive prep school stu-dent who is bullied for being a sus-pected homosexual in Elia Kazans 1953 Broadway production of Tea and Sympathy.

CLASS: Students learn dangers of distracted driving Continued From Page 1A ARRESTS: Three face drug charges after traffic stop Continued From Page 1A DORNER: Another officer killed in process Continued From Page 1A OBAMA: State of the Union speech restates many of his campaign goals Continued From Page 1A City and Daniel Dwain Walker, 30, of Steinhatchee, face felony charges of possessing listed chemicals, accord ing to a news release from the sher iffs office. Deputy Shane Foot saw a red Chevrolet Impala headed south on State Road 47. After checking the tag, the car was registered to be beige not red. He watched as the car pulled into the Chevron convenience store on SR 47 near Interstate 75, according to the arrest report. He told the driver, Estes, that he was conducting a traffic stop because the cars tag indicated the car was supposed to be beige, not red, accord ing to the arrest report. Deputies found several lithium bat teries on Mills. Tin foil, blue powder that appeared to be a form of Drano and 144 tablets of psudoephedrine were found inside the car. Deputies detained Mills based on finding lithium batteries, tin foil and Drano, according to the arrest report. From our training and experience, we know these items to be used in the manufacturing process of meth amphetamine, the report said. Mills was on inmate release for possession of a trafficking amount of methamphetamine. Dispatch told deputies the other suspects crimi nal histories reflected drug-related charges. Deputies searched a state database that tracks the purchase of psuedo ephedrine. All three suspects were in the database with multiple purchases of pseudoephedrine since January. Estes and Mills had bought the cold medicine commonly used in the man ufacture of methamphetamine that night. Deputies found 144 pills of the pseudoephedrine in the car. Estes said Mills forced her to buy the pseudoephedrine. She told the deputies she had used meth, but not since she had become pregnant a few months ago, according to the arrest report. She said Walker manu factured meth at her home over the weekend, but it was against her will, according to the arrest report. Walker told deputies the pseudo ephedrine was not intended for man ufacturing meth that night. He said they were taking the psuedoephed rine to Dixie County where someone else was going to make meth, accord ing to the arrest report. According to the arrest report, all three were arrested and taken to Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $30,000 bond for possession of listed chemicals. to being a safe driver, Cason said. Last year in Florida more than 19,000 teenagers were involved in a vehicle crashes with 10,882 of those crashes resulting in injuries. Columbia County had 134 crashes involving teenagers with 96 resulting in injuries. Statewide, 56 teens died in automobile crashes. Columbia County saw two teenagers die from automobile wrecks. (Teenagers) arent a number or a statistic to the family, the mother, the brother, father or sister, Cason said. Billy Hale teaches drivers educa tion at Columbia High School, and said Cason and Tracy Hisler-Pace, public information officer with the Highway Patrol, planned to speak to classes all day on Tuesday and Wednesday. His classes are filled with students ranging in age from 15 to 18. He said texting while driving has become a national issue that is dan gerous for anybody to do. Theres a national campaign to stop texting while driving. The slogan of the cam paign makes sense, he said, It can wait. Just taking your eyes off the highway for a few seconds can make the difference between life and death at times, Hale said. Cason said that a typical text mes sage takes between 3 and 5 seconds to compose. In that time span, a car traveling at 55 miles per hour can cover a distance of about a football field, he said. Hisler-Pace talked to the students about the driving while intoxicated. Its never a good situation, she said. You will lose every time drink ing and driving. Students were shown the destruc tion of one such incident. The scene starts with the focus on a photograph of a young woman. A female voice speaks from behind the photo. As she speaks the photograph is slowly lowered, revealing a face melted by third-degree burns. The woman was trapped in a car hit by a drunk driver and received thirddegree burns on 80 percent of her body. The womans nose is missing. While the scarred face of a victim of drunk driving hammers the mes sage home, Cason and Hisler-Pace said the work is far from done. The program will continue to explain the dangers of texting or drinking while driving one classroom at a time. I think its been a very positive program from the feed back and the experience, Hisler-Pace said. ... If we can make a difference in just a few teenagers, then we have done our job. Florida does not have any laws that prohibit texting while driving, though the Legislature will consider the matter in its upcoming session. week would have ended the way he had expected death, with the police pursuing him. Thousands of officers had been on the hunt for the former Navy reserv ist since police said he launched a campaign to exact revenge against the Los Angeles Police Department for his firing. They say he threatened to bring warfare to officers and their families, spreading fear and set ting off a search for him across the Southwest and Mexico. Enough is enough. Its time for you to turn yourself in. Its time to stop the bloodshed, LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said at a news confer ence held outside police headquar ters in Los Angeles, a starkly dif ferent atmosphere than last week when officials briefed the news media under tight security with Dorner on the loose. A short time after Smith spoke Tuesday, smoke began to rise from the cabin in the snow-covered woods near Big Bear Lake, a resort town about 80 miles east of Los Angeles. Flames then engulfed the building images that were broadcast on live television around the world. TV helicopters showed the fire burn ing freely with no apparent effort to extinguish it. We have reason to believe that it is him, said San Bernardino County sheriffs spokeswoman Cynthia Bachman, adding that she didnt know how the fire started. She noted there was gunfire between the person in the cabin and officers around the home before the blaze began. Until Tuesday, authorities didnt know whether Dorner was still near Big Bear Lake, where they found his burned-out pickup last week. Around 12:20 p.m. Tuesday, depu ties got a report of a stolen pickup truck, authorities said. The location was directly across the street from where law enforcement set up their command post on Thursday and not far from where Dorners pickup was abandoned. The owner of the vehicle taken Tuesday described the suspect as looking similar to Dorner. A warden for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife trav eling down Highway 38 recognized a man who fit Dorners description traveling in the opposite direction. The officer pursued the vehicle and there was a shooting at 12:42 p.m. in which the wildlife vehicle was hit numerous times and the suspect escaped on foot after crashing his truck. After holing up in the cabin, there was a second gun battle with San Bernardino County deputies, two of whom were shot. One died and the other was expected to live after undergoing surgery. Were heartbroken, Big Bear Lake Mayor Jay Obernolte said of the deputys death and the wound ing of his colleague. Words cant express how grateful we are for the sacrifice those men have made in defense of the community and our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families. The man believed to be Dorner never came out of the cabin, and a single shot was heard inside before the cabin was engulfed in flames, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press. The official later told the AP that a charred body was found in the burned cabin. The official requested anonymity because of the ongoing investigation. Officials were waiting for the fire to burn out before approaching the ruins to search for a body. Police say Dorner began his run on Feb. 6 after they connected the slayings of a former police captains daughter and her fiance with an angry Facebook rant they said he posted. Threats against the LAPD led officials to assign officers to pro tect officers and their families. Within hours of the release of photos of the 6-foot, 270-pounder described as armed and extreme ly dangerous, police say, Dorner unsuccessfully tried to steal a boat in San Diego to flee to Mexico and opened fire on two patrol cars in Riverside County, shooting three officers and killing one. Jumpy officers guarding one of the targets named in the rant shot and injured two women delivering newspapers Thursday in Torrance because they mistook their pickup truck for Dorners. Police found weapons and camping gear inside the charred truck in Big Bear. Helicopters using heat-seek ing technology searched the forest from above while scores of officers, some using bloodhounds, scoured the ground and checked hundreds of vacation cabins many vacant this time of year in the area. A snowstorm hindered the search and may have helped cover his tracks, though authorities were hopeful he would leave fresh footprints if hiding in the wilderness. Dorners anger with the depart ment dated back at least five years, when he was fired for filing a false report accusing his training officer of kicking a mentally ill suspect. Dorner, who is black, claimed in the rant that he was the subject of rac ism by the department and fired for doing the right thing. He said he would get even with those who wronged him as part of his plan to reclaim his good name. Youre going to see what a whis tleblower can do when you take everything from him especially his NAME!!! the rant said. You have awoken a sleeping giant. Man gets 10 years for fatal DUI crash Associated Press OCALA A man has been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison for a fatal drunken driving crash. As part of a deal with Marion County prosecu tors, 23-year-old Charles Kusiak pleaded no con test Tuesday to DUI man slaughter. Authorities say Kusiak was trying to negotiate a left curve on the road last year when he lost control, hit a utility pole and then a tree. The crash killed Kusiaks passen ger, 22-year-old Robert Kokinakis. The Ocala Star-Banner reported that Kusiak was found unconscious in the drivers seat and taken to a nearby hospital. His blood-alcohol level was recorded at 0.245 and 0.241 percent. Florida law considers a driver impaired at 0.08. American troops withdrawing from Afghanistan within a year. And he had a sharp rebuke for North Korea, which launched a nuclear test just hours before his remarks, saying, Provocations of the sort we saw last night will only isolate them further. In specific proposals for shor ing up the economy in his second term, an assertive Obama called for increased federal spending to fix the nations roads and bridges, the first increase in the minimum wage in six years and expansion of early education to every American 4-year-old. Seeking to appeal for support from Republicans, he promised that none of his propos als would increase the deficit by a single dime although he didnt explain how he would pay for his programs or how much they would cost. In the Republican response to Obamas address, rising GOP star Marco Rubio of Florida came right back at the president, saying his solution to virtually every prob lem we face is for Washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more. Rubio, in prepared remarks, said presidents of both parties have recognized that the free enterprise system brings middleclass prosperity. But President Obama? Rubio said. He believes its the cause of our problems. Still, throughout the House chamber there were symbolic displays of bipartisanship. Rep. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., arrived early and sat with Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., just returned in January nearly a year after suffering a debilitating stroke. As a captain in the National Guard, Duckworth lost both her legs while serving in Iraq in 2004. A few aisles away, the top two tax writers in Congress, Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., and Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., sat together.
T his is a long-overdue response to so many of you who have written recently at surprising length to say, well, all sorts of things. Ill begin with the thanks. Thank you to the kind woman who sent me a handmade quilt (designed with Scottie dogs and titled Bowser and Friends) for my most recent grandchild. And belated thanks, as well, to that same kind woman for three equally beautiful quilts she made for my three equally beau-tiful offspring. A special thanks to all of you whove written to tell me all about your grand-children (who are clearly above average) and to wel-come me to the club. Thank you to the countless numbers of readers who have written to say that you sincerely hope I will write always and only about being a grandpar-ent. And thank you just as much to those of you whove said, that as much as you like reading about my grandchildren, youd like on occasion to read about something else, any-thing at all. I would love to grant both requests. Or one of them, at least. But believe it or not, I dont, as a rule, get to choose what I write about. Truth is, it chooses me. I write about life and whatever comes along. Like it or not -and believe me, I dont always like it -I have little con-trol over that. Years ago, when my first husband was battling cancer, it seemed to me (and no doubt to some of you) that I all too often wrote about cancer. It got so bad that, at times, I would have a little talk with myself. It went like this: You are sick and tired of writing about cancer. You dont want to write about it. And nobody wants to read about it. So today you are not going to write about cancer. You are going to write about ... dogs. Then Id sit down to write a column about dogs, all the dogs Id ever known, how much they had taught me and how very much they had meant to me. It would be a pretty good column at the start. But pretty soon, as the column progressed, the dogs would end up getting cancer. Which not only defeated the purpose of writing about something different, but seemed a bit unfair to the dogs. The point of that is to say this: If you try to write with honesty about whats in your heart, you can run, but you cant hide. I run on occasion. But Im not good at hiding. I just write about who I am. With any luck, I hope its about who you are, as well. Thats it. Thats all Ive got. More thanks.To those whove written to say that you, too, have lost someone you loved, a loss that will never leave you, and yet you are try-ing, with the help of God, to move forward with your life. Thank you for writing. I am sorry for your loss. And I am proud of you for honoring the memory of your loved one by choos-ing to be alive. May God bless you and grant you peace. To the woman who wrote to say that reading about things I write about in my life has helped her somehow to deal with her own life -or to feel less alone or, at least, to laugh on occasion. Thank you. Imagine that. And to the man -quite a few of you, actually -who wrote to say you read my column in the bathroom behind a locked door so your wife wont see you cry? Thanks, buddy. Your secret is safe with me. Finally, I want to say this: So many of you have written to tell me that you are convinced absolutely that this year, 2013, is going to be a great year. Not just a pretty good year, but a truly great one. I want to believe you.OK, I do believe you.What do you say?Lets believe it together. P ope Benedict XVIs decision to retire Feb. 28, a well-kept secret announced Monday by the pontiff himself, took both the Roman Catholic Church and the wider world generally by surprise. But maybe it shouldnt have. In 2010, Benedict said that if a pope felt no longer physically, spiritu-ally and psychologically capable of handling the demanding duties of the office, then he had a right, even an obligation, to resign. But apparently few of the faithful took this to heart. After all, no pope had resigned since 1415, more than 70 years before Columbus first sighted the Americas. The papal deathwatch had become something of a tradition as aging pontiffs clung to life and office. One wonders how much Benedict, 85, was influenced by his men-tor and predecessor, John Paul II, who died a lingering death from Parkinsons disease in 2005 but struggled, often in heartbreaking fashion, to carry on until the end. One had to admire John Pauls strength of will, but still feel the pathos of the once-vigorous priest, who had weathered war and communism, shrunken within his robes and sup-ported by attendants. Benedict had contemplated a life in academe, as a theologian, but the church kept calling on his obvious organization-al talents. He was bishop of Munich for only three months before being made a cardinal in 1977. Four years later, John Paul named him leader of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the office that protects and preserves Catholic orthodoxy. Benedict was a tireless and sometimes blunt-spoken defender of traditional tenets. He fought off the ordination of women, and he was crit-icized as slow to react to the churchs sexual-abuse scandal. The timing of Benedicts decision indi-cates it was not arrived at casually. Lent begins this Wednesday, giving the College of Cardinals time to convene and elect a new pope by Easter, on March 31. Benedict had barely announced his decision when he was criticized for not continuing the tradition of dying in office. But Benedict did what he thought was best for the church, after having examined my conscience before God. Preliminary plans call for him to leave the Vatican upon his successors elec-tion, and then go to the papal retreat at Castel Gandolfo, just southeast of Rome. From there, he can enter a cloistered mon-astery where, in privacy and peace, he can take up the academic life he had planned when he entered the priesthood 61 years ago.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman T he state of Florida is no longer lock-ing people up for a period of time and then releasing them, hoping they dont come back. So said Mike Crews, secretary of the Florida Department of Corrections, in a Monday news conference. The dropping rate of recidivism when ex-prisoners commit new crimes is paying off for Florida, saving taxpayers about $44 million. The state needs to maintain such efforts. A top priority of the penal system should be to rehabili-tate offenders. Locking offenders up is a crude but necessary method of dealing with crime, but few prisoners should be considered beyond reha-bilitation. Most state prisoners can become law-abiding citizens. Rehabilitation and in-prison education increase the likelihood that offenders wont come back. But its not always easy to convince prisoners that they have a future outside. Just the renewal of freedom is not enough for many offenders. Once out of prison, some tend to get into trouble again. Yet the tide may be turning....Just a 1 percent drop in recidivism saves the state $19 million over five years, according to the News Service of Florida. Thats why the state saved $44 million, according to state officials. The News Service of Florida reports 41,054 prisoners were admitted during the fiscal year of 2007-08. But in the fiscal year of 2011-12, the admission number dropped to 32,279. Gov. Rick Scott and officials will reward Corrections Department employees with direct roles in the drop with one-time $1,000 bonuses, costing $21 million. The employees certainly deserve it, but some of the savings should also be reinvested in more methods to keep the anti-recid-ivism momentum going. And another chunk of the money should help balance the budget. Of course, there may be other factors at work beyond the prison systems efforts. The national crime rate has been trending downward for more than a decade. The state and national economies are also slowly improving. But whatever the reasons, the state Department of Corrections needs to emphasize programs to keep offenders from re-offending when they are released.... The Florida prison system has made real strides providing prisoners with the tools they need to get jobs and avoid falling into drug and alcohol abuse. The state has also made great strides in providing mental health treatment for inmates. Continuing this work with offenders means a safer Florida, more money for other parts of the state budget and a better life for one-time offend-ers and their families. Continue working to cut recidivism ANOTHER VIEW LETTERS POLICY Letters to the Editor should be typed or neatly written and double spaced.

From staff reportsThe Blue-Grey Army is pleased to honor the descendants of Battle of Olustee soldier Thomas Jessup Branning, grandson of an early Florida pioneer, who was very powerful and prominent in the develop-ment of Clay County and surrounding areas. The patriarch of the Branning family in Florida was Andrew Branning, born circa 1775 in Ireland. He married Susanna Hollingsworth in North Carolina in 1795. In 1815, the couple and some of their children traveled by ox cart to Middleburg, Fla., where Andrew Branning was awarded a Spanish land grant of 640 acres. At that time, this area was part of Duval County, Fla. Andrew Branning died about 1828 in Duval County. Susanna died before 1850. The couple had eight children: Samuel, George, William, Elizabeth, Reid, Mary, Susan, and James. Their son, George Washington Branning Sr., was born June 6, 1799, in Wilmington, N.C. He was listed on the census of Orange County, N,C., in 1820. The year he fol-lowed his family to Florida is not known; however, he was noted on a jury list of Clay County in 1827. According to Clay County Archives, Middleburg, by Myrtice R. Truett, 1980, page 8, George Branning supplied the United States Government with beef dur-ing the War of 1812 and moved from North Carolina to Middleburg after the ces-sion of Florida and became wealthy raising sugar cane and cotton. He also raised cattle, ran two ferries, and owned hundreds of acres of prime timber land in Clay County from which he shipped lumber to the North and also sold in Florida. He was described as a lumber titan. In addi-tion to his business pur-suits, he was active in civic and community affairs. George Washington Branning Sr. married Mary Ellen Philips about 1824, probably in Florida. She was born March 28, 1808, in Wilkes County, Ga., daughter of Matthew Henry Philips, of Edgecomb County, N.C., and his wife, Martha Barnes, born in South Hampton, Va. To the union of Mary Ellen Philips and George Washington Branning Sr. the follow-ing children were born: Becky Branning, Mary Ellen Branning, Martha Lucinda Branning, Frances Margaret Branning, Thomas Jessup Branning, Robert Reid Branning, David Levy Branning, and William Christopher Columbus Branning. After a long and productive life, George Washington Branning Sr. passed away on Aug. 18, 1878, and was laid to rest in the cem-etery of the Middleburg Methodist Church, which he supported and attended. His wife followed him in death in 1889 and was also buried there. Their son (and future Battle of Olustee soldier), Thomas Jessup Branning, was born Aug. 19, 1837, at Black Creek, Fla. It is believed his father named him after Gen. Thomas Sidney Jesup, command-er of the U.S. forces in Florida during the Second Seminole Indian War, 1837-1842. General Jesup was stationed at Fort Heilman at Gareys Ferry, later named Middleburg, so George Branning was probably well acquainted with him. By 1860, T. J. Branning was a 22-year-old mer-chant, single and living in Middleburg, Clay County, Fla. His personal property was valued at $3,340 and his real estate was valued at $1,500, a sizeable amount for that day and age. He married Mary Henry Gaines on Dec. 6, 1860, in Clay County, Florida. She was born March 2, 1840, in Hamberg, Ala. On March 2, 1863, Thomas J. Branning enlist-ed as a corporal in Company B, Second Florida Cavalry, at Camp Finnegan. Due to his intelligence and abil-ity, he advanced in rank rapidly. On Oct. 1, 1863, he was promoted to Corporal, then third corporal on Oct. 8, 1863, and finally fifth sergeant on April 6, 1864. He fought courageously with his company in the Battle of Olustee. He was consistently present on all muster rolls for Company B, Second Florida Cavalry, until Aug. 31, 1864, when he was apparently captured and held as a prisoner of war for the remainder of the war. He appeared on a Roll of Prisoners of War belong-ing to the Confederate Army, roll not dated, and was paroled at Waldo, Fla., May 20, 1865. After the war, T. J. Branning returned to his home in Clay County. He was politically active and served as treasurer of Clay County in 1866, road commissioner in 1878, tax assessor from 1883 to 1888, and supervisor of registra-tions from 1892 to August 1893. After a notable life as a public official, he died Nov. 22, 1913. His wife followed him in death on March 10, 1921. T. J. and Mary H. Branning had the following known children: Bertha M. Branning, born 1862; Ida E. Branning, born 1865; Lewis C. Branning, born 1868; Jessie T. Branning, born 1872; George W. Branning, born 1875; Winston Branning, born 1878; Mary M. Branning, born Aug. 3, 1879; and Grace Branning, born 1882. Their daughter, Mary M. Mamie Branning, married Samuel Arthur Oosterhoudt in Clay County, on Dec. 26, 1898. Mary Mamie Branning Oosterhoudt died April 16, 1963, in Jacksonville and was buried in the Greenlawn Cemetery in Duval County. Samuel A. Oosterhoudt, was born Aug. 15, 1876, in Olean, N.Y., son of Samuel F. Oosterhoudt, born in Olean, N.Y., and Louisa E. Randolph, born in New Jersey. Samuel A. Oosterhoudt died Sept. 24, 1946, and was buried in Pythian Cemetery in Duval County. During his lifetime, S. A. Oosterhoudt owned and operated the Columbia Supply Company in Lake City. Francis Samuel Oosterhoudt, son of Mary Mamie Branning and Samuel Arthur Oosterhoudt, was born in Clay County on Jan. 19, 1905. He moved with his family to Jacksonville at an early age, attended schools in Duval County and was an outstanding athlete at the old Duval High School. He later attended the Georgia Military Academy and the University of Florida, where he was captain of the football team in 1924. He moved to Lake City in 1928 and married the for-mer Allie Marsh in Jasper on Aug. 13, 1928. She was born Nov. 23, 1909, daugh-ter of renowned Columbia County timber and business man Julius C. Marsh and Lula Priest Marsh. Francis Samuel Oosterhoudt was also active for many years in the timber business and was associated with the J. C. Marsh Company. Mr. Francis Samuel Oosterhoudt was a long-time member of the Kiwanis Club and was a big sup-porter of the Little League in Columbia County. He also raised bird dogs and sponsored Bird Dog Field Trials at Winfield. In addi-tion, he was one of the founders of the Forestry School in Columbia County and served on the Board of Directors of the former Lake City Community College. He died in Columbia County on April 15, 1981, and his wife died Oct. 14, 1988. Both were buried in the Oaklawn Cemetery in Lake City. To this union was born one son, Francis Samuel Oosterhoudt Jr. Francis Samuel Oosterhoudt Jr., was born Dec. 27, 1930, in Columbia County. He married Janelle Harrell Carrier in Woodbine, Ga., on Feb. 3, 1952. She was born Dec. 4, 1931, in Atlanta, daughter of William Bruce Carrier and Janelle Harrell Carrier. Like his father, Francis Samuel Oosterhoudt Jr. worked in the timber busi-ness. He died on Aug. 20, 1972, and his wife, Janelle, died Sept. 10, 2003. They, too, were bur-ied in Oaklawn Cemetery, Lake City. Janelle and F. S. Oosterhoudt Jr. had three sons, Frances Samuel Oosterhoudt III, Michael Bruce Oosterhoudt and Patrick Oosterhoudt.

Scotts jobs development agency is coming under scrutiny from lawmakers increasingly skeptical of its recent track record in luring new companies and new jobs to the state. A House panel on Tuesday peppered agency officials with questions. Top Republicans are also calling Scotts push to boost the amount of tax dol-lars set aside to lure new companies a tough sell. Scott wants to increase the amount from $111 million to $278 million in the com-ing year. Rep. Ed Hooper, RClearwater and chairman of the House budget panel that oversees state spend-ing on incentive programs, said that unless there is a big project already under consideration it may be hard persuading lawmak-ers to set aside so much money. Those are dollars we have to tie up all year, Hooper said. Scott came into office in 2011 pledging to create 700,000 jobs over seven years by cutting taxes and restructuring the states existing economic develop-ment efforts. He had made it clear he plans to use the drop in the states unem-ployment rate as a center-piece of his re-election cam-paign in 2014.

The Gators (20-3, 10-1 Southeastern Conference) snapped a five-game losing streak in the series, and coach Billy Donovan improved to 2-7 against Kentuckys John Calipari. This one solidified Floridas spot atop the league standings. The Wildcats (17-7, 8-3) lost for the first time in six games, and it may have been costly. Nerlens Noel, the nations leading shot-block-er, injured his left knee in the second half and did not return. Noel, a freshman who averages 10.6 points, 9.6 rebounds and 4.5 blocks a game for the defending national champions, landed awkwardly on his leg with about 8 minutes to play. He screamed in pain as train-ers rushed to his side. Teammates carried him to the locker room for tests. Florida had a comfortable lead before the injury. The Gators opened a double-digit lead, 31-19, in the first half on consecu-tive 3-pointers by Wilbekin, Mike Rosario and Kenny Boynton. Young and fellow big man Erik Murphy, who was in early foul trouble, carried the load in the second half. Young made a basket with a nifty, up-and-under move, had a reverse layup and added a sweet, left-handed hook. He finished with 12 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks. The Gators knew he had to have a big game consid-ering they played a second game without forward Will Yeguete and were under-sized against the Wildcats. But the difference was guard play. Wilbekin sliced through the lane at will, creating open shots for teammates and getting Kentuckys play-ers out of position. Noel, Archie Goodwin and Willie Cauley-Stein spent time on the bench in foul trouble. Rosario finished with 12 points for Florida, which has won every confer-ence game by double dig-its. Murphy chipped in 10 points, and Casey Prather added 12 points and two blocks and took several charges, proving again to be a capable replacement for Yeguete. Cauley-Stein and Julius Mays led Kentucky with 10 points apiece. Gators snap five-game losing streak in series. Indians shut out Tigers, 4-0, in opener for bothPhotos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER / Lake City ReporterABOVE : Fort White Highs Kevin Dupree is ruled out at third as Columbia Highs Steven Rendell throws the ball to first during a game on Tuesday. LEFT : Fort White pitcher Robby Howell plays during a game against Columbia High on Tuesday. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comBoth teams had their fair share of good pitching, but only Fort White High had the bats as the Indians defeated Columbia High, 4-0, in the season opener for both schools. It was a dual performance on the mound for Fort Whites aces as Robby Howell and Kevin Dupree combined to shut down the Tigers. Howell picked up the win after going three innings allowing only one hit and striking out five batters. Dupree came in during the fourth inning and finished the game for the Indians. He allowed one hit and struck out four batters. Columbias Brent Stalter and Dalton Mauldin had the hits for the Tigers. The Tigers pitching wasnt bad either, but Columbia wasnt getting any help at the plate. Caleb Vaughn got the start for Columbia and went three innings, allowed four hits and walked three. He struck out one batter and gave up two earned runs. Columbia found the most success on the mound from a freshman as Jordan Culp pitched three 23 innings. He went two innings without allowing a run and struck out five batters before giv-ing up three hits and two earned runs in the top of the seventh. Culp finished the game with six strikeouts, three hits and a walk. Stalter finished the last out for the Tigers with a strikeout. I may have kept him a little too long, but that was a big game for him to come in and pitch like he did, Columbia head coach Jonathan Ulsh said. Youve got to give credit to Fort White. Theyre a good team and theyre going to do some things this year. We just have to find a way to manufacture some runs. Fort White was able to do just that. Howell helped his own cause in the first inning with a single to bring in Dupree, who reached earlier on a double. The Indians added another run in the third inning when Willie Carter scored off a ground out by Lane Pendergrast. For insurance, Howell delivered a double to bring in Carter in the seventh and Zach Gaskins singled in Howell for the 4-0 final. Our strength is our pitching and defense, Fort White head coach Mike Rizzi said. When our bats come alive, were going to be hard to beat. This was an emotional game and we always preach just play the game. Tonight we did that. Columbia (1-0) will try to rebound as the Tigers play two games later this week. The Tigers travel to Union County High at 7 p.m. on Thursday and end the week by hosting Buchholz High at 7 p.m. at home on Friday. Fort White (1-0) will play host to Keystone Heights High at 7 p.m. on Friday in a district contest.Lady Indians softball beats Chiefland, 5-4By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Fort White High softball took a big step for a young team with a 5-4 home win over Chiefland High on Tuesday. The hometown Lady Indians gave up three runs in the first inning and did not get a runner past first base for the first three innings. Fort White struck for four runs in the fourth inning and added an insur-ance run in the fifth inning that proved to be needed. We are very young and we had a rough week last week, Fort White head coach Cassie Sparks said. We had a powwow and they realized they had to work together. They played solid tonight and kept push-ing and pushing. They learned they cant do it by themselves. Alex Walker started the comeback inning with a lead-off single. Alexa Hatcher reached on an error and a bunt by Ashley Chesney went dead as she made it to first for a base hit. Caitlyn Bruce drove in Walker with a single and Kendall Day recorded an RBI when she was hit by a pitch and Hatcher scored. Ashley Chesney and Bruce both scored on wild pitches as Fort White took a 4-3 lead. In the fifth inning, Shea Chesney led off and sliced a double to right field. She scored when Hatchers hard grounder got by the shortstop. Ashley DAntonio, Mallorie Godbey and Day also had hits for Fort White. Alya Gonzalez made a couple of shoestring catch-es in right field and Ashley Chesney turned a double play at shortstop off a line drive. Fort White is down to one pitcher and Alex Walker did the job. She pitched a com-pleted game with six hits, six walks and eight strike-outs. Brittany Gilliam led Chiefland (1-1), going 2-for-2 with an RBI-triple and two runs scored. Mychayla Franklin (RBI), Hannah Gore and Tataneisha Barnes had hits and scored runs and Lauren Stalvey had a hit. Fort White (1-1) hosts Union County High at 6 p.m. Thursday. It is a Paint the Park Pink Game for Breast Cancer Awareness and there will be a ceremo-ny before the game. Comeback win first of the season for Fort White.

Saturdays Team Championship turned into a father/daughter show, as the first and sec-ond flights were won by Todd and Tiara Carter and Phillip and Brooke Russell, respectively. Playing with their daughters brought out the best in their games as both dads made six birdies and turned in career low rounds. Phillip carded a 74 on his own ball and Todd carded a blistering 65 to help their teams win their flights. Both teams were the gross score winners in their flights with the Russells teaming up for a 69 and the Carters posting a 65. Third flight winners posting a 73 were Bill Ryan and David Taylor. Net winners of the three flights all scored identical 60s with Brandon Goss/Jason Self taking the first flight, Tim Tortorice/Tony Johnson taking the second flight and Ken Kellam/Bob McGraw taking the third flight. Skin winners were Ralph Minster (No. 1), Todd Carter (No. 2), Bob McGraw (No. 4), Phillip Russell (No. 5), Kevin Parks (No. 6, with an eagle), Jason Self (No. 13) and Chet Carter (No. 16). The Quail Heights Mens Golf Association thanks all players who participated in the tournament and invites everyone to sign up for the next event on March 16 (9 a.m. shotgun start). The format will be a Par 3 tournament where every hole is played as a par three. Entry fee includes breakfast and range balls. Sign up in the pro shop or call 752-3339. Wednesday Blitz results: first-Keith Hudson +11; second-Ronnie Ash +10; third-Ralph Minster +6. Closest to pin winners were Jack Tuggle (No. 5), Frog Niewisch (No. 11), Jim Munns (No. 15) and Tim Tortorice (No. 17). Skin winners were Bob Budwick (No. 1), Ash (No. 4), Hudson (No. 9), Niewisch (No. 11), Randy Heavrin (No. 12) and Mike Kahlich (No. 14). Friday Dogfight results: first-Tony Johnson +10; second-Ralph Minster +8; third-Tim Tortorice +7.

The Sunday Scramble had six teams contesting for the rollover pot, with the team of Mike Kahlich, Brian Shead and Richard Bass finishing first at 2 under. The pot was in play on four of the nine holes. Hole No. 6 was drawn and there were multiple birdies, so the pot rolls over again. The Sunday Scramble is open to all golfers. Sign up by 2:45 p.m. Teams are picked at 3 p.m. to tee off by 3:30 p.m. We wish Blayne Barber good luck as he was a Monday qualifier for his first PGA Tour event this week. We hope to watch him on TV this weekend. Wednesdays blitz produced a couple of unusual results. In the A flight, four players Mike McCranie, Steve Patterson, Jonathan Allen and George Burnham managed to put a few birdies on their cards but finished in a four-way tie for first place at a rather anemic +3. By contrast, A.J. Lavin posted a winning +8 in B flight without a single stinking birdie. John Raulerson trailed Lavin by a stroke. Tom Wade (+5) and Mickey Willcox (+4) took third and fourth. Jordan Hale, Tom Wade, Bob Wheary, Mike Gough, Patterson, McCranie and Willcox shared the skins pot. The A flight of the Saturdays blitz produced another first-place tie, but only a two-way one between Jordan Hale and Cory DePratter, both at +8. Steve Thomas just missed a piece of first place with +7. Scott Kishton took fourth with +3. Steve Peters lifted his second shot on No 12 over a tree and into to the hole for an eagle en route to +13 points and first place in B flight. Jerry Smith took the second spot with +8. Chris Lewis and David Blair tied for fourth with +1. Peters eagle held up as one of the days two skins. Smith had the other. The LGA challenged the ladies with an 18-hole Nassau. Cathy Steen had an easy win on the front nine with a net 30.5. Katrina Counts was two strokes back. The second nine went to Jan Davis with 32.5, a half-stroke better than second place Sally Rivers. Rivers was the overall winner with a net score of 66. Amanda Grimmett picked up second with 69. Davis was the third-place overall finisher. Prizes for chip-ins went to Ann Bormolini and Nancy Edgar. The Good Old Boys did battle in three close two-way matches. The opening contest went to the team of Ed Snow, Dave Cannon, Dennis Hendershot and Howard Whitaker by a 7-5 score over the team of Rhea Hart, Rob Brown, Eli Witt and Nick Whitehurst. The second match ended with another two-point win, this time in favor of the foursome of Shelton Keen, Stan Woolbert, Jim Stevens and Merle Hibbard, by a 6-4 margin, over the team of Marc Risk, Emerson Darst, Hugh Sherrill and Tom Elmore. The final match was the closest, ending in a 6-5 victory for the team of Monty Montgomery, Jim McGriff, Bill Rogers, Jim Bell and Tony Branch over the team of Don Christensen, Joe Persons, Bruce Turner, Larry Ward and Dan Stephens. Montgomery (38-37-75) finished a stroke ahead of Risk (37-39-76) for medalist honors. Hendershot (38-40-78), and Woolbert (39-39-78), were their closest pur-suers. Christensen, Snow and Bell all shot 79. The MGA BU-BB tournament is Feb. 23. The format is for four-man teams where players who bogey a hole move up a tee and those who birdie a hole move back a tee. The Ruben Thomas Memorial tournament is Feb. 28.

Shameless The Helpful Gallaghers CalifornicationHouse of Lies QUAIL HEIGHTS COUNTRY CLUB Chet Carter COUNTRY CLUB at LAKE CITY Ed Goff GOLF REPORTS Unusual results Wednesday Father/daughter sweeps Arkansas, Vandy, UNC, Zona in NCAA baseball huntBy ERIC OLSONAssociated PressFew people outside Tucson believe Arizonas baseball team has a chance to repeat as national cham-pion. Pac-12 coaches have pegged the Wildcats as middle of the pack in the conference, and their high-est ranking in the national polls is No. 14. Coach Andy Lopez pays no attention to the prognos-ticators. There are probably 25 teams right now that have a realistic chance of saying, If we play well at the right time, at the end of the sea-son, we have as much right as anybody to play for it all, Lopez said. Id like to feel that were one of those teams. Its not like we lost an entire program. The Wildcats did lose five everyday players and their staff ace from the team that went 10-0 in the postsea-son and thwarted South Carolinas bid for a third straight championship at the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. Obviously, weve lost some key guys, Lopez said. Who hasnt when you have a junior class and profes-sional baseball exists? But I dont ever show up in a sea-son thinking that it cant be done, because there are too many things that have been done when people have said it cant be done. If the Wildcats need inspiration, all they have to do is look at the last Pac-12 team to win a national title. In 2007, Oregon State lost six everyday players and its top two pitchers from its 2006 championship team. The Beavers were lightly regarded in the preseason, struggled until the middle of the conference season and sneaked into the NCAA tournament after a late-sea-son surge. The Beavers fought off elimination three times in regionals and twice in super regionals before winning five straight games at the CWS to repeat. Arizona (48-17 in 2012) opens its title defense at home Friday with a threegame series against Coppin State. Arkansas, North Carolina and Vanderbilt are among the teams expected to make strong runs at making it to the CWS. The Razorbacks are No. 1 in the nation in three polls on the strength of five returning position play-ers and 10 pitchers. They also are the coaches pick to win the Southeastern Conference after going 46-22 and tying for third in the CWS. The depth of the staff is coming in handy already. Randall Fant, the project-ed No. 2 starter, probably wont pitch for two weeks because of a pulled ham-string and standout reliev-er Colby Suggs is out this weekend against Western Illinois because of a muscle pull in his rib cage. This might be a blessing in disguise, Razorbacks coach Dave Van Horn said, because we can get some new guys in there, some guys who dont normally get to pitch much. How far the Hogs go will depend on its pitching. Right-hander Ryne Stanek, with his mid-90s fastball, is regarded as the SECs top draft prospect this year after going 8-4 with a 2.82 ERA in 17 games last sea-son. Barrett Astin pitched in a team-high 32 games, 29 out of the bullpen, and recorded 11 saves with a 1.99 ERA. Suggs was 7-1 with a 1.38 ERA and held opposing hitters to a .203 average. North Carolina, which has missed the CWS two of the last three years after making it four years in a row, should be back in the hunt for its first national title. The Tar Heels have their top three starting pitchers back from their 46-16 team. Kent Emanuel, Benton Moss and Hobbs Johnson all had ERAs under 2.00. Coach Mike Fox said he knows the strength of his pitching makes Carolina a popular pick, but he point-ed out that the Tar Heels could drop off behind the plate with the graduation of Jacob Stallings, and they need to develop a proven closer. We all know those last 3-6 outs of the game are the hardest, and we dont know whos going to fill that void for us, Fox said. Thats a question mark for us big one. Plus, Fox said the Tar Heels have to survive an Atlantic Coast Conference schedule that includes a North Carolina State pro-gram that is on the rise and traditional powers in Florida State and Georgia Tech. The non-confer-ence schedule has the Tar Heels playing 2012 CWS surprise entry Stony Brook next week and a March trip to Houston to play Rice, California and Texas A&M. Vanderbilt (35-22) is wellpositioned for a strong sea-son with a mix of young players from recruiting classes ranked best in the nation two years in a row and veteran players who appeared in the CWS two years ago. Coach Tim Corbin said catcher Spencer Navin is on the verge of breaking out after batting .298 with 13 extra-base hits and throw-ing out 20 base stealers. Tony Kemp, who moved from left field to second base in the middle of last season, stole 21 bases and is tied for the school record with 15 career triples. First baseman Conrad Gregor hit .328 with three home runs, and senior outfielders Connor Harrell and Mike Yastrzemski com-bined for 13 homers and 67 RBIs. Corbin said the Commodores go into the season unsettled at short-stop and third base. T.J. Pecoraro (2-4, 3.40) came off Tommy John sur-gery to lead the pitching staff, and Corbin likes the potential of Tyler Beede and left-hander Kevin Ziomek. Stanford (41-18), with star pitcher Mark Appel and a young lineup that is loaded with offensive potential, is picked to win the Pac-12 and will bid for its first trip to Omaha since 2008.
DEAR ABBY: My daughters are attractive young women, both doing well in their professional careers. Melanie, who is 27, is married to Sam, an extremely attractive and successful man. My 30-year-old daughter, Alicia, has been divorced for a year. Her marriage failed two years ago because she and her husband had an appe-tite for sex outside their marriage. While I was disturbed about that, I was horrified to learn that Melanie allows her sister to occasionally have sex with Sam. Melanies argument is that Sam is less likely to cheat given this situation. When I asked her and Sam about it, he said it wasnt his idea. My cur-rent husband says any man who would refuse this set-up would be nuts. Alicia claims she doesnt have time to date right now, and after she finishes her MBA, shell seek out a more nor-mal relationship. I am distraught about this mess. Melanie says she wants to start a family soon. She says she loves Sam, who can handle everything, and she enjoys seeing everyone happy. She says Alicia wont sleep around now and, maybe, one day shell marry a handsome man like Sam who will return the favor! I cant believe these girls are my daughters. Should I continue to pro-test or let it go? Is this relaxed attitude about sex prevalent in young people today? I cannot under-stand Melanies lack of desire to defend her turf. -HEARTBROKEN MOM IN FLORIDA DEAR MOM: Your daughters appear to be into the concept of open marriage. Clearly, they do not view marriage and relationships the same way you do. Melanie is naive to think that encouraging Sam to have a sexual rela-tionship with her sister will discourage him from seeking other partners. Far from it. And as for her wanting to start a family, has she considered what will happen if her husband impregnates Alicia at the same time -or first? But back to your question: Are you right to protest? You certainly are. Thats what mothers are for -to inject a dose of sanity when everyone around her is losing theirs. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: The other day at work, my girlfriend overheard a group of people in the break room talking about what theyd do first if they won the lottery. Without excep-tion, everyone in that room said the first thing they would do is get a divorce. My girlfriend was stunned. Have you ever done an informal reader sur-vey on this subject? Is the state of marriage in America really that bad? Im also curious if answers would differ along gender lines. Let me know what you think, and thanks. -HAPPILY SINGLE BUT STILL A BELIEVER IN MARRIAGE DEAR HAPPILY SINGLE: No, I have not done a reader survey on this subject. But Im glad you asked, because I think what your girlfriend heard is a sad commentary on the state of the mar-riages of her co-workers. Readers, if youd care to chime in on this, Im sure it would be enlightening. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont share personal information.
