The event took place Thursday at the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation conference where the CFA rec-ognized the LCPD for complying with the standards set to be an accredited agency. The men and women of the Lake City Police, along with the LCPD Accreditation Team, are to be commended for their steadfast-ness and com-mitment as we continued with this arduous pro-cess through so many distractions these past years, LCPD Chief Argatha Gilmore said in a pre-pared statement. It is because of them we reached this milestone. It is a major accomplishment for our department to achieve accredited status. Although we can say how good we are, but when a state law enforcement community of professionals has examined your department and indicated your department has met the professional standards to becoming a premier agency. It is an awesome feeling. We are still on our way to accomplishing so much more. Our hard work con-tinues to ensure that we provide the best quality services to the citizens of Lake City. In 2010 the LCPD signed an agreement with the CFA, an independent governing body, to Board OKsprincipal switchfor FWHSBy DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comFort White High School has a new principal guiding and providing lead-ership to students and faculty after the Columbia County School Board approved the change at Tuesday nights meeting. Keith Couey takes the position of FWHS principal. He has been with the district for 26 years and previously served as Richardson Middle Schools principal for eight years. His predecessor, Keith Hatcher, was transferred to Coueys position in the district office, which is director of community and family involvement and employee affairs. Couey began his career as a math and science teacher before moving to administration. He oversaw dis-cipline for Niblack Elementary and Richardson Middle School. School Board member Dana Brady, who represents the Fort White area, said although the school is gaining a great principal in Keith Couey, Hatcher will be missed. I just want to thank you for your service to Fort White High School and to the community of Fort White, and I know youll continue to be actively involved in the community at Fort White, she said. Also at the school board meeting, the district recognized the 2012-13 outstanding school volunteers with plaques and kind words from the administrators from each school. School Board member Stephanie Finnell said it was refreshing to see volunteers helping make the schools better places for the students to learn. If you only knew half of how much we appreciate each and every one of you, Finnell said. I cant even say it in words what you do in our district, thank you and God bless you. ILL WINDS BLOWDEREK GILLIAM/ Lake City ReporterAntorria Jackson as she describes the damage done to h er home when a tree fell on the roof Tuesday morning. The tree punched a hole through the ceiling when a meso-cyclone with winds of 6 0 to 65 mph blew through the county.

In one case a Columbia County School bus with about, 30 students was stranded on Paul Pearce Lane for more than an hour. Antorria Jackson was 40 miles away at work in Macclenny when her sister called to tell her some bad news. The big oak tree in her backyard had crashed into her living room from one of the 60to 65-mile-per-hour wind gusts. The home is at 528 NW Long Street.I was in a panic and drove home, Jackson said. Jackson worked the morning shift at Northeast Florida State Hospital and left home before her three children headed to school. Jackson has a 14-year-old son who started his freshman year at Columbia High School and twin 10-year-olds a girl and a boy. She knew her aunt had dropped off the twins at school, and she said her son wouldnt skip.

State loses another round on welfare drug testingBy JIM SAUNDERSThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE A federal appeals court Tuesday refused to lift an injunction against a 2011 Florida law that would require drug tests for people seeking public-assistance benefits spurring Gov. Rick Scott to vow an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta said the state had not shown a special need for drug testing applicants to the program known as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. It upheld a preliminary injunc-tion issued in 2011 by U.S. District Judge Mary Scriven. As the district court found, the state failed to offer any factual support or to present any empiri-cal evidence of a concrete danger of illegal drug use within Floridas TANF population, the 38-page opin-ion said. The evidence in this record does not sug-gest that the population of TANF recipients engages in illegal drug use or that they misappropriate gov-ernment funds for drugs at the expense of their own and their childrens basic subsistence. The state has presented no evidence that simply because an applicant for TANF benefits is having Officials say meso-cyclone swept through county with morning storm system.

Court considering killers appeal STARKE The state is asking a U.S. Supreme Court justice to lift a stay of execution obtained by a South Florida drug traf-ficker who was convicted of killing a state trooper with a pipe bomb 21 years ago. Paul Augustus Howell was set for execution Tuesday at Florida State Prison near Starke, but the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. District of Appeal on Monday temporar-ily blocked it. The state Tuesday asked Justice Clarence Thomas to lift the stay. The Jamaica native was convicted of murdering Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Jimmy Fulford on Feb. 1, 1992. Authorities said Howell hired a driver to deliver a gift-wrapped microwave oven with the pipe bomb inside to two Marianna women. Fulford stopped him for speeding east of Tallahassee. The package exploded when Fulford tried to open it.Schools to share incentive money TALLAHASSEE Nearly half of Floridas public schools are sharing $135 million in recognition funds for high perfor-mance. The annual rewards for about 1,700 schools were announced Monday. They are based on school grades for the last aca-demic year. The grades in turn hinge largely on how well students did on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, or FCAT. Schools that received grades of A, improved by at least one grade or sustained an improvement of more than one grade the previous year will receive $93 per student. The money can be used for such purposes as buying educational equipment and materials, giving bonuses to faculty and staff or hir-ing temporary help to maintain or improve per-formance. Gov. Rick Scott has proposed increasing the fund-ing to $125 per student in the next budget.Girl, 7, honored as Citizen Hero MIAMI A 7-yearold Miami girl has been named one of the top Citizen Heroes by the Medal of Honor Foundation after she fended off a would-be kid-napper from abducting her younger cousin. ANari Taylor and her cousin were playing out-side last summer when a man picked up the little boy. Taylor kicked and hit the man until he dropped her cousin. The suspect was later arrested for kid-napping. Taylor was nominated for Citizen Service Before Self Honors. The award is given to three citi-zens by members of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society. She was one of 23 finalists announced Monday.Giraffe born at Jacksonville Zoo JACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens has a new addi-tion a 6-foot-2 baby giraffe. The reticulated giraffe weighted 150 pound when he was born Feb. 21. News reports said the as-of-yet unnamed giraffe was born to the zoos only male breeding giraffe, Duke, and a first-time mom, Luna. Zoo officials say he stood within an hour of his birth and began nurs-ing. The baby giraffe is remaining in the giraffe barn with his mother for now. But as the weather warms, zoo visitors may catch a glimpse of him in the giraffe holding yard as they pass by on the train. Hes the fifth giraffe calf born at the zoo in 2 1/2 years. The zoo currently has 11 giraffes. They typi-cally live up to 25 years in captivity.Court affirms new water rules TALLAHASSEE A state appellate court his rejected a challenge from environmental groups to Floridas new water pollu-tion rules. A three-judge panel of the 1st District Court of Appeal affirmed the rules Monday without comment. The Florida Wildlife Federation, Sierra Club and three other groups argued the rules are sci-entifically unsound and too weak to prevent algae blooms from choking state waters. They favor stricter rules developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA has tentatively approved the states rules for use in some Florida waters and the federal rules for others. The agen-cy expects to finalize its decision by Aug. 31. Agriculture and business interests as well as utilities contend the feder-al rules are too expensive to implement. They sup-port the state rules. PYONGYANG, North Korea F ormer NBA star Dennis Rodman brought his bas-ketball skills and flamboy-ant style neon-bleached hair, tattoos, nose studs and all on Tuesday to the isolated Communist country with possibly the worlds drabbest dress code: North Korea. Arriving in Pyongyang, the American athlete and showman known as The Worm became an unlikely ambassador for sports diplomacy at a time of heightened tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. Or maybe not so unlikely: Young leader Kim Jong Un is said to have been a fan of the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s, when Rodman won three championships with the club. Rodman is joining three members of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team for a Vice Media production to air on HBO in early April, Vice founder Shane Smith told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview before the groups depar-ture from Beijing. Smith said the Americans hope to engage in a little basketball diplomacy by running a basket-ball camp for children and playing pickup games with locals, and by competing alongside top athletes of North Korea formally known as the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea. Barbara Walters returning to The View NEW YORK Barbara Walters says shes returning to The View on Monday. Shes been sidelined for several weeks. But now shes had enough rest and its time to come back, Walters reported by phone during Tuesdays edition of the ABC talk show. Walters was hospitalized on Jan. 19 after fainting and cutting her head at a party in Washington. The 83-year-old said she had chickenpox and a fever at the time but didnt realize it. She suffered a concussion and got six stitches. She was released 10 days later and since then, has been rest-ing in her New York home. No more chickenpox, she told her fellow panelists in the studio dur-ing her phone call.One and done at Oscars for MacFarlane NEW YORK It looks like its one and done at the Oscars for Seth MacFarlane. The Family Guy creator was asked on his Twitter account whether hed consider hosting the Academy Awards again and he replied: No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though. MacFarlanes edgy comedy proved a polarizing force on Sundays Academy Awards, with jokes about domestic violence, womens bodies and Jews in Hollywood that offended some viewers. The Oscars did get their biggest audience in three years, however, with particular growth among young viewers. MacFarlanes spokeswoman said Tuesday she had nothing to add to the tweet.

examine the standards, policies and proce-dures of the department. The standards set by the CFA are encompassed in 39 chapters and broken down into 26 individual standards. Those standards cover topics such as training, use of force, operations, investigations and the written directive system, along with many more areas covering all facets of police work. For the LCPD to comply with the standards, the department updated its policy manual, through policy revisions, new policies and new standard operating pro-cedures. The department updated older information and service forms, created new ones and trained officers and staff members on new procedures and policies. Steve Shaw, LCPD public information officer and accreditation manager, said the department examined all areas of opera-tions to ensure it was providing the high-est level of service to the citizens of Lake City with the highest degree of profes-sionalism. The LCPD requested the CFA send assessors to the department and examine the processes, operations and level of service to citizens. The CFA sent three assessors to LCPD from Jan. 8 to 10 to examine the agency. The assessors duties and responsibilities were to see whether the standards set by CFA for were being achieved. At the end of the conclusion of the assessors review on Jan. 10, LCPD was favorably recommended for accredita-tion. On Thursday, Gilmore and Shaw went to the CFA commission, which is comprised of 13 commissioners from various areas of law enforcement agencies around the state, to respond to questions from the commissioners. After the commissions final review, the commissioners unani-mously agreed to approve the accredita-tion of the LCPD. Shaw said the CFA commended LCPD for its continued diligence, professional-ism and commitment in maintaining this highest recognition among Floridas law enforcement community. The accreditation is on a three-year cycle. We must maintain a level of performance and professionalism to meet the standards of the CFA at all times during the three-year cycle, Shaw said. This is accomplished through maintaining updat-ed policies, practices, continual training and the highest level of service we can provide to the citizens of Lake City. The LCPD was accredited in 2002 and re-accredited in 2005. However, Shaw said the agency withdrew from the process in 2008 due to transitional changes in leader-ship and procedural changes needed to be implemented to come up to current CFA standards. The accreditation means we are recognized by our peers (law enforcement agencies) throughout the state as achiev-ing the highest honor in law enforcement, Shaw said. Quite simply a premier agency. Emblems will be placed on all marked patrol vehicles indicating LCPD is an accredited agency. Members of the LCPD will receive accreditation pins to wear on their uniforms as well.

WELFARE: Court rules against state Continued From Page 1Afinancial problems, he is also drug addicted or prone to fraudulent and neglectful behavior. Scott quickly issued a statement calling the appeals-court ruling dis-turbing and saying it would be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Welfare is 100 percent about helping children, said Scott, who along with the Republican-controlled Legislature, approved the law. Welfare is taxpayer money to help people look-ing for jobs who have chil-dren. Drug use by anyone with children looking for a job is totally destructive. This is fundamentally about protecting the well-being of Florida families. While the appeal focused on the preliminary injunc-tion, the three-judge panel Tuesday backed Scrivens view that opponents of the drug-testing ban were like-ly to prevail in the overall case. Opponents contend-ed that the drug-testing requirement violated the U.S. Constitutions Fourth Amendments ban on unrea-sonable searches. The named plaintiff in the case, Navy veteran Luis Lebron, applied for benefits in 2011 as a college student and single father. Lebron, an Orlando resident who has been represented by attor-neys from the American Civil Liberties Union and the Florida Justice Institute, met the programs require-ments but refused to go along with a drug test. The courts decision clearly states that the Fourth Amendments pro-tection against being sub-jected to these kinds of invasive searches protects us all, including those of us who are struggling to make ends meet in this tough economy, said Maria Kayanan, an ACLU of Florida attorney and lead counsel in the case. The state of Florida cant treat an entire segment of our community like suspected criminals simply because they are poor and are trying to get temporary assis-tance from the government to support their families. In a brief filed early last year, the Scott administra-tion said TANF is designed to improve family stability and help beneficiaries get jobs. Drugs are antithetical to both goals, and thus drug testing furthers the pro-grams purposes, the brief said. TANF applicants, who must disclose a broad range of private information in order to participate in the program, have a substantial-ly diminished expectation of privacy. Moreover, drug testing is commonly required in todays society particu-larly in the very job market that TANF prepares partici-pants to enter. Also, while the law would require applicants to pass drug tests before they could receive benefits, the state contended that people who dont want to comply with the programs requirements are free to walk away. DAMAGE: Houses crushed by trees Continued From Page 1Aher son, Michael, wasnt at home when the tree fell. The 40-minute dash home left her plenty of time to think about all the possibilities. I was praying he wasnt in here, and I was pray-ing it hadnt went through, Jackson said. But it went through. The mobile homes living room ceiling was crushed in and most of the sheet rock was either broken or hung close to the floor. Jackson said she plans to try to repair the damage, but had spent more than $4,000 last year remodel-ing the living room, which now has a tree poking through the ceiling. She owns the property, and said if the damage isnt repairable she will bring another mobile home to the property. The Red Cross brought a tarp to cover the hole in the roof and has put the family in a hotel for three days. Catholic Charities is helping find an apartment for the family. Jackson said her family is also helping. In the meantime, Im just going to be patient and pray, Jackson said. Its all I can do. Shayne Morgan, Columbia Countys emer-gency management direc-tor, said the meso-cyclone passed through with the most severe winds between Fort White and Columbia City. He said at least three homes were damaged by falling trees and numerous trees fell across roads. He said a meso-cyclone is a rotating storm that pro-duces straight-line winds that can be in excess of 60 mph. Meso-cyclones also can spawn tornadoes. We were fortunate that this one did not, Morgan said. He said although the county received reports of tornadoes from resi-dents of the county, the National Weather Service in Jacksonville said the storm did not produce tor-nadoes. At the school board meeting, Lex Carswell, assistant superintendent, gave the school board members an update on how the school district responded during the storm at Tuesdays school board meeting. It was a remarkable day, Carswell said. It was one of those days where you wake up in the morn-ing and that is not on your to-do list. He said the storm caused Columbia City Elementary, Fort White middle and high schools, Columbia High School, Melrose Park Elementary and Eastside Elementary to go into lock down during the storm. Those schools also then sprang into a tornado drill. Lex Carswell said a bus load of children was strand-ed on Paul Pearce Lane when the meso-cyclone produced gusts of wind. A tree fell in front of the bus, and when the bus tried to back-up, another tree fell behind the bus blocking the path. It was stuck there for probably for an hour, Carswell said. ... She had a bus full of kids ... and in just pelting rain. The bus driver was smiling, she was competent, she had control (and) the kids were well behaved. Superintendent Terry Huddleston was not at the school board meeting as he was ill, but Carswell thanked the fast action of the Columbia Countys Public Works Department for their efforts at freeing the bus and clearing the roadways. We need to pay special gratitude to the Sheriffs Department and the depu-ties and the county road crew, Carswell said. ... It was just a day where every agency in the coun-ty pitched in and helped make the children of the school safer. LCPD: State accreditation received Continued From Page 1ABy BRENT KALLESTADAssociated Press TALLAHASSEE It took Will Weatherford 10 years to catapult from political novice to one of Floridas most influential legislators. An untested $22,000-a-year campaign worker fresh out of college a decade ago, Weatherford, 33, is now one of the young-est House speakers in the states history. Weatherford began his political journey after grad-uating from Jacksonville University by helping former state Rep. Allan Bense pick up support in his successful campaign to become House speaker. Weatherford then joined Bense as a legislative aide handling constituency issues and married the speakers daughter along the way. But, his father-in-law points out, Weatherford earned his spurs on his own. He is much, much smarter on public policy issues than I was, said Bense, who was speaker from 2004 to 2006. Hes in Jebs (former Gov. Jeb Bush) league in terms of details on public policy. He (Weatherford) can debate points I wouldnt even think about. Its uncanny. Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, first caught Benses eye during his final year at Jacksonville where he was a football teammate of Benses son, Jason. Within a minute after meeting him, I said to myself, This guy has got potential, recalled Bense. Maybe more than Bense first knew: It wasnt long before Weatherford and Benses daughter, Courtney, started dating. They married in 2006 and now have three daugh-ters under the age of 5. Weatherford, who has eight siblings, says hes in negotiations for a fourth in hopes of a son. Weatherford recalls how nervous he was when he approached Bense, who was then his boss, about asking out his only daugh-ter. I say, Hey, I dont want to get fired, but Im think-ing about taking Courtney out on a date if thats OK, Weatherford said. He said, Sounds good, dont worry. About nine months later we were engaged. And Bense said whenever there is an issue between the two, he sides with his son-in-law. Always, Bense said. I couldnt ask for a better son-in-law. Or one who shares his love for politics. In Weatherfords case, politics has been in his blood since childhood. His grandmother, Carolyn Warner, ran for governor in Arizona where she is a longtime Democratic activist and one-time the states superintendent of schools. Her father, Weatherfords great grand-father, was a state senator in Oklahoma. The new Florida speaker can actually trace his ancestry back to William Weatherford, known as Chief Red Eagle in the Creek Indian tribe. He negotiated a peace treaty with Col. Andrew Jackson in the early part of the 19th century following battles in Alabama and Florida.ASSOCIATED PRESS FILEState Rep. Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, is, at 33, one of the youngest speakers in Floridas House history. A successful tenure could boost him into the ranks of GOP candidates with potential for higher office. House speaker following father-in-laws footsteps
R aul Castro was rub-ber-stamped Sunday into another term as Cubas president. He says this term will be his last and that he will retire in 2018. In 54 years, Cubans have had only two presidents -not that they had much choice in the matter -Raul, 81, and his ailing older brother, Fidel, 86, the countrys long-serving dictator who stepped aside for Raul only when ill health forced him to. Bypassing an entire generation of aging Castroites, Raul named Miguel Diaz-Canel, 52, as his new first vice presi-dent and heir apparent. Diaz-Canel replaces Jose Ramon Machado Ventura, 81, who fought alongside the Castros in the Cuban revolution. Raul praised Machado Ventura for his patriotism and selflessness in mak-ing way for Diaz-Canel, although voluntarily relin-quishing power has not been a hallmark of the Castros Cuba. Raul told a gathering of legislative leaders that he plans to establish two-term limits for Cubas top political offices and estab-lish age limits for hold-ing those offices. These may be well-intentioned reforms, but they would also assure that no future leaders challenge the Castro brothers for their place in Cubas history books. Raul reiterated his commitment to defend, maintain and continue to perfect socialism, but while in office he nibbled at the edges of Cubas pervasive state socialism, allowing certain types of private businesses and real estate ownership, and easing travel restrictions. Those steps were small and slow in coming, but at least they were in the right direction if Cuba is ever to gain a modicum of prosperity. Diaz-Canel, an electrical engineer by training, is a former minister of higher education and headed the Communist Party in two provinces. He learned quickly when a charismatic patron of his was dumped by the Castros that the better part of valor was to be neither seen nor heard. He apparently excels in backroom politics, a skill he will need because, while Raul sees him as the heir apparent, its a safe bet that a lot of Cuban politicians, their ambitions bottled up by the long rule of the Castros, do not. Meanwhile, Raul could celebrate his second term and indicate his desire for friendly relations with the U.S. by releasing Alan Gross, 63, a USAID con-tractor who was arrested in 2009 and sentenced to 15 years in prison for ille-gally bringing communica-tions equipment onto the island. Gross crime was apparently trying to link Cubas small Jewish community to other Jewish communi-ties by providing Internet connections. Most of the civilized world does not see this as a crime and neither should Cuba. M y mountain. I wish you could see it. Our view looks west across the glittering Las Vegas Valley. The southern tip of the Strip, with its hotels and casinos and flashing billboards, looms large 15 miles away. On the far side of the valley, the Spring Mountains rise up like wak-ing giants, flexing their granite muscles, daring you to try to cross them to California. In the evenings, after a neon sunset, my husband and I like to sit on the patio watching the sky fill with jets circling the airport. Oh, look, I say, there comes another planeload of money. Sometimes, if were lucky, we hear coyotes singing in the dry gulch on the golf course. Its a song that reminds us -despite our tinted-windowed cars and air-conditioned houses and artificially landscaped lives -that we, too, were born to live wild and free. We, too, like to howl at the moon. On occasion. Figuratively speaking. Im not sure when I began to think of Las Vegas as home. I never dreamed Id live here. I never even wanted to visit. But sometimes life takes you places you never dreamed youd go. And then, there you are with a choice to make: Like it or not. So here we are. And we like it. A job change for my husband moved us to Vegas in 2005, a year after we were married. When he proposed, he never mentioned relocating. Id been a widow for seven years, living in the same house where Id raised three children on the coast of California, a short walk to the beaches along Monterey Bay. My desk was wedged in an upstairs bay window looking out on a basketball court that served as a gladiator arena for my kids, their friends and an assortment of dogs and cats. The action seldom stopped. But the distant view was blessedly more serene. The house sat on the tip of the Monterey Peninsula with salt water on three sides. My window faced east, beyond the basketball court, across the blue bowl of Monterey Bay (we called its curve the Queens Necklace) to a small coastal range presided over by the queen: Mount Toro. In spring, Mount Toro turned Land of Oz green. In summer, she was purest gold. In winter, she could be snowcapped. I loved her. Ive always had a thing for mountains. You could say theyre in my blood. I grew up on the border of North and South Carolina, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge, in the shadow of a mountain called Hogback. I left Hogback when I grew up. But it never really left me. It has followed me all my life, showing up whenever I needed it -in the faces of other mountains, other times, other places, the coast of California, the campgrounds of Yosemite and now, much to my surprise, in the Mojave Desert outside Las Vegas, of all places. I saw it again today through a brand-new bay window that my hus-band gave me for my birthday. He didnt install it. There arent enough swear words in his vast vocabulary to cover window installation. He hired it done by a crew of men who did not swear at all. The new window faces west toward California, through two tall palm trees that frame in fine sym-metry the lights of the valley, Red Rock Canyon and a snow-covered Mount Charleston -with Hogback peeking over its shoulder. Maybe nobody else saw it. But I did. We all see in different ways. My brother was born blind. He has never seen a mountain. But he smells rain, hears thunder, feels a warm Southern breeze on his neck and knows he is home. We are imprinted, I believe, on a cellular level, by the geography of where we are born. The land where we play as a child leaves its mark like a brand on the soul. It causes us to feel a kinship to mountains or rivers or rocks or concrete that is as real and lasting as anything we will ever feel for flesh and blood. For me, home is a mountain.What is it for you?

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman Identity theft is a creepy, crawly thing. It gets inside its victims in a particularly insidious way. In extreme cases, it can ruin your life before you even know whats happened. Last year, many federal taxpayers refunds were delayed because they had been stolen by I.D. thieves. One-fifth of those victims lived in Florida. Seniors living alone may be especially vulnerable. To its credit, the IRS is cracking down. The agency has increased investigations threefold, doubled tax-related I.D. theft personnel and upgraded its anti-fraud computer soft-ware, the Sun Sentinel reports. The problem of I.D. theft is broader than its tax-fraud implications. Thieves also might use your identity to take out bank loans in your name or make huge purchases on that credit card that was in your wallet just an hour ago. All of us can and should take steps to protect ourselves. Guard your wallet or purse at all times. Protect your Social Security number. Dont give it to anyone without a proven, legitimate need. Never provide personal information over the phone except to someone you know and trust. Buy a shredder. Use it on all sensitive documents when you dispose of them. Be wary of social media. Remember that information you share can come back to hurt you in more ways than one. Above all, protect yourself. Sometimes the creeps just want your money. Sometimes their motives are much darker.

The tree damaged part of a laundry room and bedroom. Two people were in the home at the time the tree fell, but no one was hurt. To prevent this from happening, you have to evaluate the trees before this problem occurs instead of after the fact, Evachek said.

By ALICIA A. CALDWELL Associated Press WASHINGTON A week before manda tory budget cuts go into effect across the govern ment, the Department of Homeland Security has started releasing illegal immigrants being held in immigration jails across the country, Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Tuesday. Gillian Christensen, an ICE spokeswoman, said ICE has reviewed several hundred cases of immi grants being held in jails around the country and released them in the last week. They have been placed on an appropriate, more cost-effective form of supervised release, she said. Christensen said the agencys priority for detention remains on seri ous criminal offenders and other individuals who pose a significant threat to pub lic safety. She did not say how released immigrants were selected or what jails they were released from. Tuesdays announce ment of jail releases is the first tangible impact of the looming budget cuts for DHS. The Obama adminis tration has been issuing dire warnings about the impact of the sequestration and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano told reporters at the White House Monday that across-the-board cuts would impact the depart ments core operations, including border security and airport screening oper ations. She also warned that DHS might not be able to afford to keep the 34,000 immigration jail beds man dated by Congress. On average last week, there were 30,773 people being held in ICE jails. Republicans lawmak ers decried the releases Tuesday. Its abhorrent that President (Barack) Obama is releasing criminals into our communities to pro mote his political agenda on sequestration, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte. By releasing criminal immigrants onto the streets, the Administration is needlessly endanger ing American lives. It also undermines our efforts to come together with the Administration and reform our nations immigration laws. The administration asked for about $1.96 billion for immigration jail opera tions in the last budget. It amounts to about $5.4 million a day, according to the National Immigration Forums report. Christensen said Tuesday that released immigrants will still face deportation proceedings. RICHARD LARDNER Associated Press WASHINGTON The billions of dollars in defense budget cuts scheduled to begin at the end of the week will have a swift and severe impact on military readiness and Congress needs to take fast action to stop them, members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Tuesday in an 11th hour bid to keep the reductions from going into effect. Testifying before the House Appropriations defense subcommittee, the five uniformed leaders of the military branches described how national security would be put at risk if they are forced to make deep decreases in spending for personnel, training, and equipment modernization programs. Their appearance marks the fourth time in the last three weeks that top Pentagons leaders have testified before a congres sional oversight committee about how the countrys fiscal outlook affects the armed forces. Their warn ings of a looming readiness crisis havent changed, but the pending deadline has made them more urgent. If we do not have the resources to train and equip the force, our young men and women will pay the price, potentially with their lives, said Gen. Ray Odierno, the Army chief of staff. Despite the dire predic tions, many of the cuts to hit the Defense Department and other federal agencies would come in later years and could be partially off set by cuts in programs that are wasteful or behind schedule. Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., criticized Defense Department offi cials earlier this month for adding drama to the bud get debate by publicly high lighting the cuts to the read iness accounts. Hunter, a former Marine who served two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, is a mem ber of the House Armed Services Committee. The automatic cuts, known as a sequester in Washington speak, are scheduled to begin on March 1 and are the result of Congress failure to trim the deficit by $1.2 trillion over a decade. The Pentagon faces a $46 billion budget reduction through the end of September, and additional cuts would come in future years as long as the sequester remains in effect. The military also has to absorb a $487 billion reduction in defense spend ing over the next 10 years mandated by the Budget Control Act passed in 2011. The militarys fiscal chal lenges are further compli cated by the lack of a bud get for the current fiscal year, according to defense officials. Congress hasnt approved one. Instead, law makers have been passing bills called continuing reso lutions, which keep spend ing levels at last years rates. That means the Pentagon is operating on less money than planned, compound ing the financial problem facing the armed forces. The main problem with the sequester is not the size of the cuts to the defense budget, but rath er the across-the-board way they are adminis tered, according to Todd Harrison of the nonparti san Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments in Washington. The military has very little flexibility under the law to make smart spending reduc tions, he said. High-priority, successful programs must be cut by the same percent age as wasteful, redundant, and low-priority programs, Harrison said. Yet even with the seques ter, the Pentagon will still maintain an annual budget of well over $500 billion a year for the rest of the decade.

University of California-Berkeley engi neering professor Robert Bea was the first witness at a civil trial to determine how much more BP and other compa nies should pay for the spill. Bea said BP PLC didnt implement a two-year-old safety management program on the rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. Its a classic failure of management and leadership in BP, said Bea, a for mer BP consultant who also investigated the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill and New Orleans levee breaches after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The London-based company has said its Operating Management System was designed to drive a rigorous and system atic approach to safety and risk manage ment. During cross-examination by a BP lawyer, Bea said the company made significant efforts to improve safety management as early as 2003. However, BP only implemented its new safety plan at just one of the seven rigs the company owned or leased in the Gulf at the time of the disaster. Bea said it was tragic and egregious that BP didnt apply its own safety pro gram to the Deepwater Horizon before the Macondo well blowout triggered the explosion that killed 11 workers and spawned the massive spill. Transocean owned the rig; BP leased it. BP lawyer Mike Brock said the com pany allows contractors like Transocean to take the primary responsibility for the safety of rig operations as long as the contractors safety system is compat ible with BPs an arrangement that Brock suggested is a standard industry practice. As he questioned Bea, Brock also recited a long list of steps that BP took to improve safety, citing them as evidence that the company wasnt cutting corners in the area of safety. A plaintiffs lawyer showed Bea a tran script of a deposition of Tony Hayward, who was BPs CEO at the time of the disaster. Hayward was asked if the dead ly April 20, 2010, blowout could have been averted if BP had implemented the safety management program in the Gulf.

Mr. Allen and his team treated shooters to a pheas-ant-and-rice dinner and smothered-down venison with 40-weight gravy. Allen said there 16 paid shooters and he arranged for four more to make a full circle. He also provided run-ners to pick up the birds. Allen said he planned to donated the $250 cost for one shooter to the club. The shoot was at the Green Farm on Falling Creek Road. Family owner Robin Green is president of Peoples Bank. We want to doublethank Robin, Allen said. He was the businessman who gave the biggest help and brought in several shooters. Allen also thanked Central States, which con-tributed a shooter and donated caps for the hunt-ers. Veolia Environmental Services had a shooter and provided portable Columbia County QB Club has 20 shooters show.

The Lady Tigers faced Buchholz High in a non-district matchup while the Tigers hosted Vanguard High in a district match. Lady Tigers head coach Tabatha McMahon admitted that Buchholz is one of the best teams that Columbia would face this season, but noted that the opportunity to play the Lady Bobcats would only make Columbia better in the long run. Buchholz asked us to play them a couple of years ago and its a good thing for our team, McMahon said. The match allows us to see a level of depth in terms of tennis. Its an opportunity for the girls to see a level of play that we are striving for. With a young team this season, McMahon believes that the Lady Tigers will grow and eventually reach the level that Buchholz is on. This year is an opportunity for us to improve as a team, McMahon said. The Lady Tigers were swept 0-7 in the match. Columbia fell to 1-3 on the year following the loss to Buchholz. Heather Benson, Paula Gimeniz and Tori Jackson each lost 0-8 in the top-three singles matches. Chase Broome and Haley Wheeler each earned a point off their opponents, but fell 1-8 in the No. 4 and No. 5 seed singles matches. Winners for the Lady Bobcats were Kendal Wilby (No. 1), Lillie Mehan (No. 2), Maggie Bethea (No. 3), Lauren Blakely (No. 4) and Susan Stanfill (No. 5). In doubles the team of Wilby and Courtney Cribb defeated Benson an Gimeniz 1-8 in the No. 1 seed match. In the No. 2 doubles match Broome and Jackson fell 0-8 against Mehan and Blakely. The Lady Tigers will host Forest High at 4 p.m. on Friday. Columbias boys team was also swept on all courts against Vanguard. Octavious Buiey lost 6-8 in the No. 1 singles match, while Jesas Jevan lost 5-8 in the No. 2 match. Carter Jackson lost 4-8 in the No. 3 singles match and George Parker fell 3-8 in the No. 4 singles match. Brandon Lavance had a closely contested No. 5 singles match, but fell 6-8. The boys didnt fare much better in doubles as Vanguard was able to win both matches. Buiey and Jevan fell in the No. 1 doubles match by the score of 4-8 Jackson and Parker fell in a close No. 2 doubles match by the score of 6-8. Lady Tigers face Buchholz, while boys take on Vanguard.

Only hardly anyone saw them. And it didnt even count. After both were eliminated in the first round of the Match Play Championship, No. 1 and No. 2 in the world played two rounds Sunday morning at The Medalist. We thought wed play our own Match Play final, McIlroy said Tuesday at the Honda Classic. They were done about the time Matt Kuchar was holding on for a 2-and-1 win over Hunter Mahan at Dove Mountain in Arizona. McIlroy didnt give any details of the match, but its safe to say they werent wearing the ski caps that Kuchar and Mahan had on during their match. So who won? McIlroy said Woods won the first round, and McIlroy beat him the second round. That would leave their head-to-head record tied at 2 wins apiece. A year ago, Woods beat McIlroy in the World Golf Finals exhibi-tion in Turkey, and McIlroy beat him in an 18-hole exhi-bition in China. One thing they didnt have to worry about was pace of play. They teed off at 8 a.m. and McIlroy said he was home by 1:30 p.m. He putts with the pin in, McIlroy said. Its speed golf. It was good. It was really enjoyable. McIlroy is the defending champion at the Honda Classic, where he held on despite a birdie-eagle fin-ish by Woods, who tied for second.

QUAIL HEIGHTS COUNTRY CLUB Chet Carter
DEAR ABBY: I need help and I cant talk to any-one I know, so Im pouring my heart out to you. My husband is addicted to online porn. Our sex life has suffered massively because of it. He seems uninterested in sex with me. I had a feeling that it might be something or someone else. My womans intuition told me there had to be a reason for him turning to porn, so I checked our computers history log and found he has been surfing gay porn. He does watch straight porn, but now pep-pers it with male-on-male porn as well. It has shattered my world. I dont know what to think or what to do. I cant discuss this with my fam-ily. They would never view him in the same way again. Help! -J. IN BRIGHTON, ENGLAND DEAR J.: Your husband may be curious, bisexual or have discovered (late) that he is gay. It happens. You need to have a frank conversation with him. Remain calm, stay strong and remember that you, too, are entitled to a sex life. You have nothing to lose by discussing this, and everything to gain. If you need more help afterward, consider going online and contacting the Straight Spouse Network at www.straightspouse.org. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have been in therapy for four years. I like my thera-pist, who has helped me immensely. However, over the past year she has become increasingly tardy in keeping her appoint-ment times. I understand there are sometimes emergencies, but being a half-hour late every week is excessive. I feel it is disrespectful to me. She keeps saying I just dont understand. How can I get across to her how frustrated I am? Or do I need to find a new therapist? -BY THE CLOCK IN CONNECTICUT DEAR BY THE CLOCK: Tell your therapist exactly how this is affecting you and ask what HER prob-lem is. She owes you an explanation. I agree that being late for your appointment is disrespectful if it happens regularly. You may need to find another therapist. If thats the case, be sure to tell her why you are leaving. It takes courage to be assertive, but it will help you in your personal growth. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Please help me with a delicate situation between me and my husband of seven years. For our 20th anniversary, my first husband gave me a diamond anniversary ring. After running across it again, I have recently started wearing it. My husband is very offended that I have cho-sen to do this. I wear it on the middle finger of my left hand. (The knuckle on my right hand was broken when I was a teen and it wont fit on that hand.) I have tried explaining that there is no senti-mental reason for wear-ing the ring. Its just a beautiful piece of jewelry. He doesnt want me to wear it at all, but I do. Do you have any advice? -LIKES THE SPARKLE IN WISCONSIN DEAR LIKES THE SPARKLE: While the ring may be just a beautiful piece of jewelry to you, to your husband it may sym-bolize the 20-plus years you spent with someone else. Ask if he would mind if you had the stones in the ring remounted into some-thing you could wear on your right hand -or con-sider selling it and using the money to buy another piece of jewelry that would be less threatening to your current spouse. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get on with your life. You may be feeling emo-tional, but dont give in or give up. Take a look at your options before mov-ing forward with contracts or commitments. Be true to yourself. Make things happen. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The time spent work-ing out details will pay off and bring you closer to your life goal. Favors will be granted if you are will-ing to offer what you can in return. +++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Avoid any risky involvements. Too much trust will cost you emotion-ally, financially and physi-cally if you arent careful. Discipline will keep you out of trouble and help you establish your place in the market in which you work. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Overconfidence is your enemy. Work quietly behind the scenes and you will accomplish something that will eventually bring you the recognition you desire. Love is highlighted, and personal improve-ments should be consid-ered and made. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Money and health matters must not be ignored. Follow through with paperwork in order to get the best results. Additional responsibilities can also bring you financial gains. Cut your costs and secure your position. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A personal change will verify that you were in need of a pick-me-up in order to move in a positive direction. Partnerships can enhance your life and lead to an unusual path that will allow you to put your attri-butes to good use. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep a close eye on what everyone around you is doing. You will come up with some good ideas and workable solutions. Emotional extravagance will not help you get what you want in your personal life. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You dont have to spend big money in order to make your point or prompt someone to show affection. Its important to offer good conversation, affection and equality in all aspects of life in order to achieve a sustainable rela-tionship. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Dont believe everything you hear. You are up against someone who has ulterior motives. A change at home may be required in order to avoid someone unpredictable. A poor influence could lead you astray and blame you for what transpires. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Attend a reunion or make a point of recon-necting with someone who you feel has some-thing to offer. Taking an unusual direction is not your normal procedure, but this time it will pay off. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Turn your space into a place that will enhance your ability to follow a dream or create a project that can help you make a little extra cash. You will learn a lot if you observe past mistakes and other peoples failures. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Live and breathe what you want to accomplish. Let your dreams lead the way and dont give up until you have reached a point that makes you feel com-fortable about your future goals. Romance late in the day will help ease your stress. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
