By DEREK GILLIAM email@example.com The Florida Department of Education recommends school districts replace their buses every 10 years. Some in Columbia Countys aging fleet have been in service more than twice that long. School board member Keith Hudson said the school district hasnt bought new buses in three years. Im real ly disap pointed, Hudson said at Tuesdays school board meeting in Fort White. I dont think were doing the right thing. Carol Alford, the school districts director of transpor tation, said Wednesday that By DEREK GILLIAM firstname.lastname@example.org E very year the Olustee Battle Festival draws thousands, giving Lake City the chance to showcase the downtown area. It takes an army of more than 100 volunteers from The Blue-Grey Army to plan for the marching spectators that descend from all over, and every year the citys public works department enlists to make the plans become a reality. Thomas Henry, director of Lake Citys public works department, said city employ ees start preparing the downtown area more than a week before the festival from making sure the vendors have electricity and water to building an entire village at the battle site. Everthing and anything. Thats the best way to say it, Henry said. ... The first three weeks of February we are committed to the Blue-Grey Army. Joey Raulerson, assistant director of Lake Citys public works department, will work an additional 40 hours in 3 days spotting poten tial problems before they occur. While he will not make overtime (hes salaried), working the big festivals is something he enjoys. I look forward to the Fourth of July and Olustee, Raulerson said. They are a chal lenges and I like challenges. Raulerson works with the Blue-Grey Army in committees, and has been planning and preparing the Olustee Battle Festival for more than 20 years. He said he has it down to an art. It takes a lot of planning, but its easy for me because Ive done it so many times, Raulerson said. He said the key is organization. For exam ple, the parade starts at 10:30 on Saturday. There are certain things that must be done well before Saturday so the parade can begin.

An opportunity to bring together the country instead became another retread of lip service and liberalism, said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. He said Obama offered little more than gimmicks and tax hikes in a pedestrian liberal boilerplate that any Democratic lawmaker could have given at any time in recent history. Obama used the prime-time speech Tuesday to call for action on a broad agenda that included the economy, guns, immigration, taxes and climate change. He offered new initiatives on preschool programs, voting, manufacturing and research and development. He said he wanted to raise the minimum wage and lower energy use. It is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many and not just the few, the presi dent said. During a visit Wednesday to Asheville, N.C., Obama promoted his ideas on cre ating jobs and closing the income gap between the wealthiest and middle-income Americans.

Elections bill getting bipartisan support By BRANDON LARRABEE THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA TALLAHASSEE A pro posal designed to expand early voting days and limit the length of ballots unanimously passed a House subcommittee Wednesday, but Democrats warned the measure would need to change to continue to attract bipartisan support. Still, the across-the-aisle support marked a striking departure from the venomous debate two years ago over leg islation that restricted voting, and showed how the debate has shifted since an Election Day that featured long lines, late results and more late-night jokes at Floridas expense. The measure (PCB EES 1301) would allow supervisors to increase the number of earlyvoting days to 14, though they could remain at the current standard of eight. It would also limit some ballot summaries
TUCSON, Ariz. F ormer U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, talk about their continued push for gun regulation in the upcoming issue of Vogue magazine. The couple has formed a political action committee in hopes of pre-venting gun violence and changing laws to require compulsory back-ground checks for gun buyers. The PAC will also work to limit the size of ammo magazines and to ban the sale of assault weapons to civilians. Kelly said now is the time to do something in the wake of recent mass shootings in Colorado and Connecticut. Giffords and Kelly were interviewed at their Tucson home for the article, which appears in the March issue of Vogue that will be available on newsstands on Tuesday. Giffords, 42, is shown lounging on a couch, dressed casually in a turtle-neck sweater and holding hands with her husband. Giffords was among 13 people wounded in a January 2011 shooting rampage as she met with constitu-ents outside a Tucson supermarket. Six people were killed. She resigned from Congress last year. Kelly, a former astronaut, has been by her side during her recov-ery. They both attended Tuesdays State of the Union Address in which President Barack Obama called for stricter gun laws.Dave Clark Five bassist Huxley dies at 72 LONDON Bass player Rick Huxley, one of the founding mem-bers of the Dave Clark Five, has died. He was 72. Clark announced Huxleys death Tuesday, saying the news was devastating. Huxley played on the bands signature hits from the era when they brief-ly rivaled the Beatles in popularity. They were part of the British invasion that included the Rolling Stones, The Kinks and other bands. Their best-known songs included Bits and Pieces and Glad All Over. They enjoyed a large following in the United States after appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, the Sunday night televi-sion show that also introduced the Beatles to American audiences. The band faded after several years when harder-edged bands such as Cream, the Jimi Hendrix Experience and the Doors rose to popularity. The Dave Clark Five broke up in 1970 after 12 years together. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008.Magistrate reduces bond for reality TV actress SUMMERSVILLE, W.Va.

AROUND FLORIDA City to stop bum hunting SARASOTA A judge ruled Wednesday that the city of Sarasota cant stop homeless people from holding up signs or solicit-ing for money because it would violate their First Amendment rights. Judge Fredrick Defuria signed the temporary injunction and the city has agreed to abide by the order, which stops officials and police from targeting the citys homeless popula-tion. The judge said that the police cannot inter-fere with the exercise of First Amendment Rights, which includes people holding signs on public sidewalks and soliciting assistance. The American Civil Liberties Union recently brought a legal challenge on behalf of two homeless men, saying authorities were trying to harass the homeless into leaving the city. The ACLU uncov-ered a recent surveillance video showing an officer throwing a homeless man against a metal grate. They also allege that officers sent messages to each other on the police depart-ments communication system referring to bum hunting. According to Michael Barfield, who is the chair of the legal panel of the Sarasota ACLU chapter, the lawsuit was filed after police arrested two home-less men who were on public property asking for money. One of the men displayed a sign that said, Homeless.

I woke one morning with a thought to contact a local man, said to have been the biggest racist in town. After struggling with the internal dilemma I decided to meet with him and found him to be quite interesting. He shared with me many opinions, some I concurred with and some I did not. I found one opinion he held about affirmative action rather concerning. I recalled thinking to myself, maybe people were right about this man. My mind would not allow that without probing the origin of his opinion. Conversing further, I found his opinion rooted in personal experience, not hatred. Prior to leav-ing the meeting, I shared with him the perception some held of him, and my opinion that their percep-tions might well have been the product of his communication skills. I asked him to consider that some audiences required explanation far beyond his understanding to remove ambiguous motives in his dialogue. The entire conversation left me baffled that many people use the term racist to describe the individual opinions held by others rather than beliefs or issues one has against an entire race. Moreover, and even worse, is the self-fulfilling prophecy humans face. We say it enough times and it will become true. Merriam-Webster defines a racist as one who believes that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differ-ences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. Whats the old say-ing, the stupid question is the one one you dont ask. Maybe we should probe just a little more to understand the origin of the words and actions of people prior to giving them the power of being a racist, when in fact they simply possess an opinion about an individual, who happens to be of a particu-lar race. Just something to think about.LOCAL WISDOMFrancine Robinson-HarrisBorn nearly one century ago, Mrs. Robinson-Harris was married 52 years to her first husband Frank Robinson prior to becom-ing a widow. The couple had five children, two girls and three boys, who pro-duced 14 living grandchil-dren and a few great-grand-children. She grew up in Watertown and graduated from Richardson High School. Her first job was working at Sowell Jewelry Store, followed by the Lovely Shop, Director at Richardson Daycare, the Bridal Shop and Pennys. After 10 years as a widow, Mrs. Robinson-Harris recalls the many prayers sent up asking God for a good man to share life with, as her companion. After 10 years as a widow, and at the age of 85, she married Samuel Harris and the cou-ple enjoyed the remainder of his life together full of love, joy and the warmth of happiness. Mrs. Robinson-Harris smiles as she shares that she never imagined being so blessed to marry a man like Samuel. She says she prayed long and hard with great specificity and became Mrs. Samuel Harris, proving to her that God answers the specif-ic prayers. I asked Mrs. Robinson-Harris what was the most significant event to occur in her life-time, being almost a cen-tury in this world. Her response was, becoming a Christian. She recalled the responsibility she had beginning at age 15, of teaching Sunday school lessons from a blackboard draw-ing. She would arrive early, draw the picture and allow the creativity of the children to lead the lessons discussion. Mrs. Robinson-Harris said the advice she would give to young people was to keep hope alive by having a relationship with God. We are proud to have the wisdom of Mrs. Francine Robinson-Harris in the community. TEST YOUR HISTORY KNOWLEDGELocal History1870The United States Census for Lake City recorded three citizens that were born in Africa. Those citizens were Lucy Adams, born about 1780, Rebecca Godwin, born about 1765 and Mary Jackson, born about 1795. National History Mary Jane McLeod (Bethune) was born on July 10, 1875 in Mayesville, South Carolina on a rice farm. Her parents were both former slaves and she was the 15th of 17 children. At the age of 11, Mary began attending a school for African American children run by the Presbyterian Church. Mary was an excellent student and worked very hard at mas-tering her studies. Mary attended Scotia Seminary in North Carolina and the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago where she was the only African American in attendance. She graduated in 1895. In 1898, she married Albertus Bethune and they moved to Savannah, Georgia. Their first son, Albert was born in 1899. She founded the Daytona Normal and Industrial Institute for Girls in Daytona Beach to help provide these opportuni-ties. She was an instructor and the headmaster of this school for more than 19 years. The school merged with the Cookman Institute in 1923 becoming Bethune-Cookman College. Mary was the president of the college until 1942. She also founded the National Council for Negro Women in 1935 and directed the Division of Negro Affairs of the National Youth Administration until 1944. She was the first African American woman to become the head of a fed-eral agency. Mary was appointed a special assistant to the Secretary of War during World War II to help in the selection of candidates for the Womens Army Corps. She also served as a special advisor on minority affairs to President Roosevelt. Mary worked closely with both President and Mrs. Roosevelt and was a trust-ed advisor. In 1945, she assisted Eleanor Roosevelt as a special consultant on interracial affairs at the San Francisco Conference of the United Nations.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman The guilty plea by the former head of the Republican Party of Florida has saved some of the states political elite the embarrassment of a trial. But the tale of Jim Greers rise and fall and his ability to hide his crimes from many party insiders and donors is a powerful argument for the need for campaign finance reform in Tallahassee. Political parties should be just as open and held just as much to account as candidates and committees for the dol-lars they collect and spend. Greers guilty plea to theft and money laundering charges ends a sordid story that engulfed elected officials from former Gov. Charlie Crist, who put Greer in charge of the state GOP, to U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, whose cavalier use of a party credit card during his time as Florida House speaker also came to light. Greers guilty plea limits the fallout, particularly since no current statewide offi-cial has been tied to this mess. Many Republicans have argued that Greer was a self-interested rogue operator caught stealing cash from the state party through a separate consulting business. But the broader truth is that Greer was a creature of Tallahassees corrupt pay-to-play culture. He facilitated the collection of millions of dollars in con-tributions to the Republican Party and then spent the money in a manner that allowed him and a small cadre of others many of them elected officials to live large under the guise of party business. The only difference, perhaps, was the magnitude. After all, for years before Greer arrived, elected party officials had free use of party credit cards that some abused. All this subterfuge is facilitated by a state campaign finance law whose disclosure requirements are of little use. Political parties only have to dis-close their contributions and expenditures once every three months, or slightly more frequently around elections. What if grass roots activists, donors and lesser officials could regularly assess how the party apparatus is spending the millions it collects? Would it not make leaders of all political parties more accountable? So far, the Florida House and Senate discussions about increasing campaign finance reporting requirements to once a month, and much more frequently around elections, would apply only to candidates, political committees and electioneer-ing communication organizations excluding the most powerful political organizations in the state capital. House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz should reassess that plan. Political parties can collect unlimited donations and spend them far more freely dwarfing the power of any single candidate or committee. Greer now awaits sentencing, but its only a matter of time, with millions of special interest dollars flowing through Tallahassee, before someone else gets greedy. More openness remains one of the best safeguards.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.orgI deology and personal tastes often can speak louder in politics than evidence or logic, and, yes, thats as true for one side as it is for another. But it has been especially pronounced among leftists in recent years, as many found little that George W. Bush did as president that they did not abhor even as they can find little in Barack Obama they do not very nearly worship. There have been pronounced exceptions, but the left has mainly defended even the most obvious transgressions, such as lassitude on our imperiling debt. And even when Obama was doing something comparable to what they used to denounce as Hitlerian in Bush, the comments about similar Obama acts have mainly been by way of making excuses. That may be changing some now in the wake of a leaked administra-tion paper on drones, but lets recall how the left reacted to the Patriot Act under Bush. It was the end of the Constitution, thats what, only somehow, when it was extended with Obamas approving signature, it was a yawn at worst. Lets next consider rendition, the practice of imprisoning captured terrorists in other countries where all kinds of nasty things might happen to them. When the Bush administration trod in that territory, liberals were aghast. Obama has also done it, and many liberals have managed to look the other way. Now we come to the use of unmanned, remote-controlled drones to kill enemies in foreign lands. The Bush administration employed the weaponry, but its use has been greatly increased by the Obama administration. Sometimes civilians are killed, including chil-dren, and critics contend we there-by fuel anti-U.S. hatred that further jeopardizes our security. Obama, who has involved himself personally in attacks, according to a New York Times account citing witnesses, has also used drones to kill U.S. citizens who have been convicted of no crime. All of this has been known for some time with few loudly voiced complaints. Lately, though, the press got hold of a White House paper showing that the administra-tion was quite possibly far more lax in its criteria for killing than had been assumed, meaning that there were increased chances of snuffing out the lives of innocent people pos-ing no threat to us. A number of previously quiet liberals have come to life over this issue, as they should. For that mat-ter, it was proper to ask hard ques-tions about Bushs interrogation techniques; few would agree that anything goes, even on a battlefield in the midst of combat. At the same time, we need to remember there is no way to con-duct war without horror and we are involved in a terrible, asymmetric conflict of a kind we have not faced before. Safeguarding our nation demands new ways of thinking, such as recognizing that the most fearsome combatants often operate in civilian settings. There is meanwhile an old way of thinking we should cling to. We should understand that our democ-racy is ill served by blatantly hypo-critical judgments bowing to politi-cal predispositions while ignoring the obvious. 4AOPINIONI f there was any hope that new leadership in Pyongyang pre-saged an end to North Koreas indifference to the welfare of its people and world opinion, it ended with a seismic thud Tuesday, when that nation conducted its third underground nuclear test. The test was the first under new ruler Kim Jong Un, who, despite a smattering of Western education, seems more and more in the bel-ligerent and hermetic mold of his father and grandfather, the Kim family being the only rulers North Korea has ever known. President Barack Obama said the test would only increase North Koreas isolation and impoverish-ment. The U.N. Security Council convened an emergency session to denounce the test as a clear threat to international peace and security and made a vague pledge of further action against the regime. If Kims regime has one weakness, its that it cant stand to be ignored. Late last year, perhaps thinking the United States was far too preoccupied with the Mideast and North Africa, it made a series of direct threats to target the U.S. That might have been alarming if North Korea had been remotely capable of carrying them out. But it would be a mistake to underestimate the countrys deter-mination to have a credible nuclear threat. At one time, North Korea could blackmail the developed nations to provide food and fuel in return for promises -ultimately empty -that it would mothball its nuclear-weap-ons program. China is Pyongyangs closest ally, or at least the nation least hostile to it. Here again, North Koreas poverty is one of its best defenses. Beijing fears -correctly, no doubt -that any turmoil, like regime change, would send hundreds of thousands of desperate refugees flooding across the Chinese border. China specifically warned North Korea not to conduct the test. Chinas state-run Global Times newspaper said North Korea must pay a heavy price if it did. China should proceed quickly and deci-sively to exact that price. Q Scripps Howard News Service. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Ms. Linda Thomas, PresidentColumbia County NAACP BranchLake City, Florida 32055Dear President Thomas:After much reflections and prayer I have concluded that I cannot be active in the branch as an officer. The Columbia County Branch is a part of the Florida State Conference of Branches and a part of the National Association. The recent action taken against Mrs. Presley by the state conference and national office was unfair, unjust and cruel. Any fair person would realize the heavy handiness of taking her down as president of the branch and revoking her Lifetime member-ship without the benefit of defense is inhumane and unbecoming of a CIVIL RIGHTS ORGANIZATION. I have been upset and angry since I found out about the punitive action against the Presleys. Now my angry has turn into outrage therefore the Godly thing to do is to resign from the Executive Board of Columbia NAACP Branch. I do so with a determination to fight for Mrs. Presleys restoration and to expose the evil plot to harm the Presleys. I can no longer be associ-ated with a State Conference that treats a warriors family like trai-tors. I do plan on returning to my community activism but as an inde-pendent agent or with another civil rights organization. May God Smile On You And All That You DO!!

The city puts out 20 extra 55-gallon drums in the downtown area for the festival. Cleanliness, Cleanliness, Cleanliness, Raulerson said. People dont like coming to a nasty festival. A crew of city employees will monitor the park for the two days of the festival. It takes a lot of city time to do this, he said. Henry estimated the city spends between $8,000 to $10,000 on overtime during the festival. City Manager Wendell Johnson said the public works department is instru mental to making the festi val a success. Public works are really the backbone of the Olustee Battle Festival, he said. ... We couldnt do it without them. No question about that. Starting Friday, the pub lic works department will be closing some roads near Olustee Park in Downtown Lake City: Hernando Avenue to Madison, and Marion Avenue down to NE Franklin. In addition, the courthouse parking lot will close Friday. Part of the lot will be left open so people can access the tax collectors office.

However, if the Legislature approved more than one summary for an amendment, only the first would be subject to the 75world limit. And if the attor ney general were required to rewrite a flawed ballot summary, that revision would also not fall under the new rules. proposals designed to encourage companies that have operated over seas to bring back jobs to the U.S. Were seeing this trend of what we call insourcing, not just outsourc ing, Obama said. And the reason is because America has got outstanding workers. Were starting to produce more homegrown energy, which is driving down our energy costs. And, obviously, weve still got the biggest market in the world. And if we try to improve our infrastructure a little bit more, then were going to be even that much more competitive. Obama wants to spend money on public works, on neighborhood renovations on helping communi ties that have lost job major employ ers, and on encouraging businesses, universities and the government to work together on new manufacturing technologies. I need Congress to take up these initiatives, because weve come too far and weve worked too hard to turn back now, Obama said. His remarks didnt seem to budge Republicans who control the House and hold enough votes to stall leg islation in the Senate. They believe government helps best by getting out of the way. the districts buses average about two breakdowns a day. The older your fleet, the more breakdowns you have, she said. The school district has 117 buses, 73 of which are used on a daily basis. One of the buses thats used every day was built in 1987. Its more than 15 years past its recommended life span. At least 10 of the buses were built in 1990, Alford said. All buses built after 2001 are required to have seat belts. The school district has 60 buses built after 2001. She said all the buses must pass a monthly safety checks, and even though some buses are older, they are still safe. There is absolutely no way we would have them on a route if they werent safe, she said. The real problem with an aging fleet of school buses is the cost of maintenance. Just as with cars, when vehicles age the parts become harder to find and more maintenance is required. The district would need to buy about 30 new buses to properly update the fleet, Alford said. On average, Hudson said, a school bus costs $100,000. Superintendent Terry Huddleston said he expects the district to purchase two school buses this year, but wants to wait until the measures he has been working fix some of the districts budget problems. The district could fall below the states required 3 percent general fund reserve this budget cycle, and Huddleston has been implementing savings to try to stay above that mark. If the dis trict falls below 3 percent, it will have to send a plan to the state with ways to bring the reserve above that threshold. The money used to buy buses comes from a different fund than the general fund, and some of that fund could be transferred to the general fund, Huddleston said. He expects the purchase of school buses to take place some time between March 1 and June 30. Next year, he said, the district needs to buy at least two buses. If we can buy more than that we need to, he said. It just depends on the budget. The quicker we can purchase them the better off we will be. Huddleston said the district wont know next school years budget until May. It doesnt take long to fall behind on a replacement plan, Huddleston said. You have to replace buses every year.
By MIKE STOBBE AP Medical Writer NEW YORK A big gov ernment study has fingered leafy greens like lettuce and spinach as the leading source of food poisoning, a perhaps uncomfortable conclusion for health offi cials who want us to eat our vegetables. Most meals are safe, said Dr. Patricia Griffin, a government research er and one of the studys authors who said the find ing shouldnt discourage people from eating produce. Experts repeated oftenheard advice: Be sure to wash those foods or cook them thoroughly. While more people may have gotten sick from plants, more died from con taminated poultry, the study also found. The results were released Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each year roughly 1 in 6 Americans or 48 mil lion people gets sick from food poisoning. That includes 128,000 hospital ization and 3,000 deaths, according to previous CDC estimates. The new report is the most comprehensive CDC has produced on the sourc es of food poisoning, cover ing the years 1998 through 2008. It reflects the agen cys growing sophistication at monitoring illnesses and finding their source. What jumped out at the researchers was the role fruits and vegetables played in food poisonings, said Griffin, who heads the CDC office that handles food borne infection surveillance and analysis. About 1 in 5 illnesses were linked to leafy green vegetables more than any other type of food. And nearly half of all food poi sonings were attributed to produce in general, when illnesses from other fruits and vegetables were added in. Its been kind of a tough month for vegetables. A controversy erupted when Taco Bell started airing a TV ad for its variety 12-pack of tacos, with a voiceover saying that bringing a vege table tray to a football party is like punting on fourthand-1. It said that people secretly hate guests who bring vegetables to parties. The fast-food chain on Monday announced it was pulling the commercial after receiving complaints that it discouraged people from eating vegetables. The CDC report sug gests that the Food and Drug Administration should devote more staff time and other resources to inspection of fruits and veg etables, said Michael Doyle, director of the University of Georgias Center for Food Safety. Earlier this month, the FDA released a proposed new rule for produce safety that would set new hygiene standards for farm workers and for trying to reduce contact with animal waste and dirty water. Meanwhile, CDC offi cials emphasized that their report should not be seen as discouraging people from eating vegetables. Many of the vegetablerelated illnesses come from norovirus, which is often spread by cooks and food handlers. So contamination sometimes has more to do with the kitchen or restau rant it came from than the food itself, Griffin noted. By LINDSEY TANNER AP Medical Writer CHICAGO Shootings and other traumatic events involving children are not rare, but theres a startling lack of scientific evidence on the best ways to help young survivors and wit nesses heal, a governmentfunded analysis found. School-based counsel ing treatments showed the most promise, but theres no hard proof that anxi ety drugs or other medi cation work and far more research is needed to pro vide solid answers, say the authors who reviewed 25 studies. Their report was sponsored by the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. According to research cited in the report, about two-thirds of U.S. children and teens younger than 18 will experience at least one traumatic event, includ ing shootings and other violence, car crashes and weather disasters. That includes survivors and wit nesses of trauma. Most will not suffer any long-term psychological problems, but about 13 percent will develop symptoms of posttraumatic stress, including anxiety, behavior difficul ties and other problems related to the event. The reports conclusions dont mean that no treat ment works. Its just that no one knows which treat ments are best, or if certain ones work better for some children but not others. Our findings serve as a call to action, the researchers wrote in their analysis, published online Monday by the journal Pediatrics. This is a very impor tant topic, just in light of recent events, said lead author Valerie FormanHoffman, a researcher at RTI International, a North Carolina-based nonprofit research group. She has two young chil dren and said the results suggest that its likely one of them will experi ence some kind of trauma before reaching adult hood. As a parent I want to know what works best, the researcher said. Besides the December massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, other recent tragedies involving young survivors or witnesses include the fatal shooting last month of a 15-yearold Chicago girl gunned down in front of a group of friends; Superstorm Sandy in October; and the 2011 Joplin, Mo., tornado, whose survivors include students whose high school was destroyed. Some may do fine with no treatment; others will need some sort of counsel ing to help them cope. Studying which treat ments are most effective is difficult because so many things affect how a child or teen will fare emotion ally after a traumatic event, said Dr. Denise Dowd, an emergency physician and research director at Childrens Mercy Hospitals and Clinics in Kansas City, Missouri, who wrote a Pediatrics editorial. One of the most impor tant factors is how the childs parents handle the aftermath, Dowd said. If the parent is freak ing out and has difficul ty controlling emotions, kids will have a tougher time dealing with trauma. Traumatized kids need to feel like theyre in a safe and stable environment, and if their parents have trouble coping, its going to be very difficult for the kid, she said. The researchers ana lyzed 25 studies of treat ments that included antianxiety and depression drugs, school-based coun seling, and various types of psychotherapy. The strongest evidence favored school-based treatments involving cognitive behav ior therapy, which helps patients find ways to cope with disturbing thoughts and emotions, sometimes including talking repeat edly about their trauma. This treatment worked better than nothing, but more research is needed comparing it with alterna tives, the report says. We really dont have a gold standard treatment right now, said William Copeland, a psychologist and researcher at Duke University Medical Center who was not involved in the report. A lot of doctors and therapists may be patch ing together a little bit of this and a little bit of that, and that might not add up to the most effective treat ment for any given child, he said. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 6AHealth S O U T H E R N INTERNAL MEDICINE S O U T H E R N INTERNAL MEDICINE Specializing in adult medical care including: Dr. Guy S.

According a report by the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, about two-thirds of U.S. children will experience at least one traumatic event, includ ing shootings and other violence, car crashes and weather disasters before turning 18. What heals traumatized kids? Answers lacking Most will have bad experiences before age 18. By LAURAN NEERGAARD AP Medical Writer WASHINGTON Fighting the problem of fake drugs will require cre ating a national drug-track ing system, the Institute of Medicine said Wednesday. The call for putting med ications through a chain of custody like U.S. courts require for evidence in a trial comes a week after the Food and Drug Administration warned doctors, for the third time in about a year, that it dis covered a counterfeit batch of the cancer drug Avastin that lacked the real tumorkilling ingredient. Fake and substandard drugs have become an increasing concern as U.S. pharmaceutical compa nies move more of their manufacturing overseas. The risk made headlines in 2008 when U.S. patients died from a contaminated blood thinner imported from China. The Institute of Medicine report made clear that this is a global problem that requires an international response. It also notes that developing countries especially at risk from phony medications. Drug-resistant tuberculo sis, for example, is fueled in part by watered-down medications sold in many poor countries. There can be nothing worse than for a patient to take a medication that either doesnt work or poisons the patient, said Lawrence O. Gostin, a professor of health law at Georgetown University who led the IOM com mittee that studied how to combat the growing problem. Study determines leafy greens are top food poisoning source Poultry found to cause more deaths, though. ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE A worker harvests romaine lettuce in Salinas, Calif. Leafy green vegetables were the leading source of food poisoning over an 11-year period, federal health officials say. However, the most food-related deaths were from contaminated chicken and other poultry.

From staff reports Playoff push By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com Columbia High will begin its playoff push today where the Tigers ended it last season. A veteran group returns for Ridgeview High as it hosts the Tigers in the Region 1-6A quarterfinal game at 7 p.m. in Orange Park. Last year, the Panthers knocked off Columbia, 76-53, behind 42 points in the paint. Ridgeview will start five seniors with Kendell Blackmon, Kyjon Jones, K.J. Mitchell, Kurae Burns and Jaylin Gilbert getting the start for the Panthers. Last year Burns had 14 points and Jones had 12 points to help knock off the Tigers. Columbia head coach Horace Jefferson is hoping that the Tigers can reverse their fortunes against the Panthers this season. The Tigers (16-7) had a District 4-6A runner-up year forcing them onto the road for the playoff matchup against the Panthers (19-8). And although the Panthers are strong, Jefferson feels that they are beatable. Theyre a combo of two teams weve already seen a lot of this year in Palatka and Fort White, Jefferson said. They have extremely quick guard play. Theyre like Palatka in that they will run a lot of full court man and theyre like Fort White in that theyll run a lot of full court zone. Theyre going to do both and try to use their quickness. Jefferson said that its no upset that the Panthers are back in this spot hosting a first round playoff game and that it all starts with the guards. Theyre one of the top two or three teams weve seen all year in terms of quickness, Jefferson said. Theyre very experienced and theyre going to look to run and penetrate. Jefferson said that defense will be the best offense for the Panthers. They want to come and slap the ball away from behind, Jefferson said. They want to trap. Their defense sets up their offense and theyre a transi tion team. But the Panthers are also packed with experience. Theyre all good, Jefferson said. Gilbert can shoot and theyve got a lineup of seniors. One thing though is that theyre not very big. Size was part of the prob lem the Tigers had against the Wolfpack in the District 4-6A Championship, but Jefferson doesnt see any matchup problems against Ridgeview. If we can handle the pressure, well be alright, because they like to come at you, Jefferson said. I dont see any matchup prob lems. My concern is their quickness. Theyre going to run multiple defenses. We have a lot of fires in this area, and sometimes to control a fire you have to start another fire. Thats what were going to try to do, start a fire some where else to keep them off balance. Jefferson said if theres one key for the Tigers its to start fast. They key is to make early baskets, Jefferson said. If we can have suc cess early, the rest will take care of itself. We cant start the game 0-for-10 from the field again. We have to score early. The head coach wants the Tigers to forget about Wolfson High for now and focus on the playoffs. I told the guys we arent as bad as we played, Jefferson said. The good thing is we get another chance to go out there and prove that. A win and they could get another chance at Wolfson in round two.

The Indians will take on the Hurricanes at 7 p.m. today. While Fort White is making its first trip to the state playoffs, Mount Dora, which opened in 1922, will be going for the 24th time and the second straight year under coach Ariel Betancourt. Fort Whites record is 14-5, while Mount Dora is 16-10. The Indians lost 66-62 in overtime to Williston High in the District 5-4A cham-pionship game. Mount Dora beat South Sumter High, 61-46, for the District 6 title after escaping with a 48-47 win over Trinity Catholic High in the semifinals.

DEAR ABBY: It bothers me greatly to know that so many children continue to start smoking at an early age. My husband and I did that, and now were paying an awful price. We have had emphysema for years. Four of our children also took up the habit. I finally started paying them to quit ($100 every two weeks they didnt smoke -up to five payments). I decided to head off the temptation our grandchil-dren would face. We told them if they didnt start smoking by the age of 18, wed pay them $2,000. So far, seven of the 10 have collected a nice check on their 18th birthday, and we expect the remaining three to collect in turn. They have grown up understand-ing that cigarettes are gross and, if they start smoking, it will cost them a lot of money! Abby, youre the best way to spread ideas. I hope you will think it worthwhile to pass this one along. -DO AS I SAY, GAINESVILLE, FLA. DEAR DO AS I SAY: Im passing it along, but frankly, Im not crazy about bribery. One would think that, having witnessed firsthand the serious health issues you and your husband are experiencing, your grandchildren would have understood what awaited them if they took up the habit. The tobacco industry has done a huge disser-vice to young people by marketing their products to them -and not just in the form of cigarettes, but also with flavored chewing tobacco, which is equally addictive. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, nearly 90 percent of smok-ers start by age 18. In 2006, U.S. District Judge Gladys E. Kessler of Washington, D.C., ruled the major cigarette manufacturers were guilty of fraud and racketeering under the federal RICO Act. (When the tobacco companies appealed, the Supreme Court rejected it without comment.) She wrote that for more than 50 years the tobacco industry lied, misrepre-sented and deceived the American public, including smokers and the young people they avidly sought as replacement smok-ers, about the devastating effects of smoking.... They suppressed research, they destroyed documents, they manipu-lated the use of nicotine so as to increase and per-petuate addiction, they dis-torted the truth ... so as to discourage smokers from quitting. It is extremely important that young people be educated about -and prevented from -using tobacco. Smokers who start as teenagers increase their chances of becom-ing addicted. Think about it: reduced lung function, early heart disease, cancer, asthma, disfigurement. Yes -it could happen to YOU. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have a wonderful husband and adorable grandchildren, but I have developed deep feelings for a man I met at the gym where I go with a friend. I find myself thinking of this man during the day and night. I dont want to have an affair nor do I want him to know what I feel. When the thoughts of him come, they overwhelm me so I try to pray. I have no plans to cheat on my hus-band. What else can I do? -CONFIDENTIAL IN GREENVILLE, N.C. DEAR CONFIDENTIAL: Because you have a won-derful husband and a life you do not want to be dis-rupted, I recommend that when you finish exercis-ing at the gym you take a COLD shower. And if that doesnt work, go to an all-female gym. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Nurture partnerships that are under pressure. Its better to be nice than nasty if you want to get a good response. Sensitive issues that are left to fester will escalate. Taking care of past regrets or problems will help you move for-ward now. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Discipline and practi-cal applications will help you solve any problem you face. Showing your con-cern for others will lead to an interesting alliance. Favors will be granted if you are straightforward regarding what you want and need. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont meddle or offer help. If you get involved in a sticky situation, you will risk being blamed. Protect your position and your reputation. Moderation is required. Love is in the stars. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Dont be shy; share your thoughts and ideas and you will gain momen-tum and attract the help you require to excel. Let your intuition guide you when dealing with people or situations of a sensitive nature. Back away from people displaying erratic behavior. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will enhance your outlook, ideas and imagi-nation if you visit people or places that are unusual or offer something youve never experienced before. Take care of whats neces-sary, then take care of you. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A contract or partner-ship can alter your finan-cial future. A new plan or commitment coupled with pursuing a joint venture will give you a new lease on life. Details will be what separate you from the competition. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Engage in pastimes or groups that will introduce you to new and exciting people. Its time to spice up your life and put your-self first. Romance is on the rise and a chance to enhance your love life is apparent. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Home is where you belong. Turn your abode into your den for both work and play. Set aside time to take care of your personal desires and to explore possibilities that will shape your future. Let your intuition guide you. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Read between the lines or you may fall victim to a scam. Keep your conversations to the point and as honest as possible. You will be misunderstood if you are too exuberant. Changes at home will end up being beneficial. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Ease into what-ever you want to pursue. Making assumptions based on too few facts will lead to an emotional mess. Try to decipher the information you gather before making any sudden moves. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Look and you shall find. Dont mess with whats working. Focus on what you can do to improve your life, your position and your home base. Your ideas are solid -now all you have to do is implement your plan of attack. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take everything you do seriously and show others that you mean business. Its your attitude that will make the difference at the end of the day. Own your position and control your decision. Simplicity and moderation will lead to victory. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Tigers finalize district, 2013 football scheduleBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High head football coach Brian Allen announced the completion of the Tigers 2013 football schedule on Wednesday. Columbia will compete in a new district next season with only two holdovers from the 2012 district. The Tigers will still have Orange Park and Middleburg high schools as part of the district sched-ule in 2013, but Columbia loses district runner-up Ridgeview High. Joining Columbia in the new District 3-6A are Ed White, Englewood, Lee and Terry Parker high schools. Columbia is the only school with a winning record in 2012 in the new district. This is brand new to me, Allen said. I hear that its a district similar to what we used to compete in before I was in high school. Im not judging a book by its cover and the same can be said for us. I think the district is fair and we wont have to travel as much. Columbia does have a tough non-district schedule this season. The Tigers will open with the kickoff clas-sic against Jacksonvilles Trinity Christian School on Aug. 23. The regular season kicks off in a rematch of the Tigers only regular season loss against 6A state run-ner-up Gainesville High on Aug. 30 in Lake City. Columbia will renew its rivalry with Lincoln High on the road on Sept. 6. The Tigers then come home for back-to-back games with Buchholz and Terry Parker high schools. Parker will be the first dis-trict game of the season. Columbia plays district games in four-consecutive weeks. The Tigers are away at Englewood on Sept. 27 before homecoming against Orange Park on Oct. 4 and a road game at Ed White on Oct. 11. Columbias bye week is Oct. 18 and the Tigers will host Lee High for senior night on Oct. 25 before two road games close the regu-lar season. Columbia will travel to Middleburg High on Nov. 1 and Suwannee High on Nov. 8. Allen feels the schedule is a good regular-season challenge for the Tigers as they prepare to challenge for the district champion-ship for the second con-secutive year. Well play two teams that played for a state champi-onship in Gainesville and Lincoln, Allen said. The kickoff classic is also against a very good Trinity Christian team. Theres some good ball games. We wish we had one of those tough non-district oppo-nents around week 6 or 7 as we prepare for the play-offs, not to say our district opponents wont be, but we still have some very good opponents. Buchholz is another playoff team that made it to the second round last year. Allen said the junior varsity needs two more games to complete its schedule.

The Tigers had first place winners in eight of the 10 weight classes. Tony Springborn had a 240 bench and 170 clean and jerk for a 410 total in the 139-weight class. Other first place winners for the Tigers were: Antonio Pelham (255-235-450) in the 154-pound weight class, Blake Kuykendall (265-225-490) in the 169-pound weight class, Drew Clark (295-265-550) in the 183-pound weight class, Felix Woods (290-285-575) in the 199-pound weight class, Terry Calloway (300-275-575) in the 219-pound weight class, Javere Smith (295-300-595) in the 238-pound weight class and Laremy Tunsil (330-265-595) in the heavyweight division Kenny Paul, Lonnie Underwood, Wyndell Wallace, Solomon Bell and Malachi Jean had sec-ond place finishes for the Tigers. Roger Cray, Hunter lord, Ben Kuykendall, Trey Marshall, Deonta Crumitie and Ethan Bailey had third place finishes. For the first meet, it was good numbers, head coach Brian Allen said. The num-bers arent as good as they want them to be or theyre going to be, but it was a good meet. Gainesville is a little down and graduated a lot of kids, but Im pleased with the outcome. Columbia travels to Baker County High in a quad-meet also featuring Suwannee and Oakleaf high schools at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
