By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Columbia County man, arrested Wednesday morn-ing, faces sexual bat-tery charges for an alleged inappropriate relationship with a child. A standoff briefly closed U.S. 441 lead-ing to his arrest Tuesday. Theodore B. Parsons, 39, no address provided, was charged with lewd and lascivi-ous behavior (molestation on a victim less than 12 years of age). He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility without bond. According to county Sheriffs Office reports, on Monday, a deputy was disBy MARGIE MENZEL Tne News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Background checks of purchasers would be required on all gun sales in Florida under a bill two Democratic law-makers have filed in an effort to close the so-called gun show loophole. Rep. Lori Berman said Wednesday that about 40 percent of gun sales are at gun shows or done on the Internet, allowing the buyer to complete the pur-chase without going through any background screening as would be required at a storefront gun dealership. We support the right of people to have guns, but we dont believe that you should be able to sell or transfer your gun without making sure that the person who is pur-chasing the gun is legally entitled to, said Berman, D-Lantana. Measures aimed at tightening restrictions on gun sales or use havent typically been successful in the Legislature. The measure will be opposed by the National Rifle Association. This is supposed to be a free country, and law-abiding people are not supposed to be encum-bered by every imaginable kind of restriction that a legislator who doesnt like guns makes up, said Marion Hammer, the lobbyist for the NRA affiliate in Florida. Hammer said the proposal has another problem because in cases where the buyer fails a background check, if the gun cant be returned to the seller, the dealer must turn it over to a sheriff. She called that confisca-tion with no compensation. The bills (HB 1343, SB 1640) would ban the sale of guns to con-victs, fugitives, veterans who were dishonorably discharged, and Opinion ................ 4APeople.................. 2AObituaries .............. 5A Advice & Comics ......... 3B Puzzles ................. 4B TODAY IN PEOPLE Dancer admits role in attack.

Home invasion victims regret mistaken ID Questions arise over LCPDs handling ofsuspect photo lineup.By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comThe women who identified Derick Jeremy Lee as the man who attempted to rob them at a Lake City jewelry party in January said they feel horrible about falsely identifying him. I was just devastated, literally, when I found out he was not the person, said Jacquie Hagler, at whose home the incident occurred. ... My heart sank to think we false-ly accused someone. The Jan. 25 robbery attempt has gained national attention because Hagler stood up and shouted at the masked gunman to Get out, in the name of Jesus. Most of the 17 other women at the party began chanting Jesus, Jesus until the intruder, who had put a gun to one womans head, turned and ran. Hagler said she was devastated for two reason. She would hate to be falsely accused herself, and if Lee did not commit the crime, the person who did is still out there on the streets. He did look like him, she said. Panel approves texting ban bill Measures chances of becoming law doubtful, though.By JAMES L. ROSICAAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE A Senate panel on Wednesday unanimously approved a bill to impose a statewide ban on texting while driving, but the road to becoming law is long for a measure that has already died the previous three years. Critics in the House have repeatedly killed it, calling it unnecessary government intrusion into peoples lives. The Senate Communications commit-tee on Wednesday voted 9-0 for the bill (SB 52). The bill would outlaw texting by driv-ers but exempts police and other emergency vehicles. The proposed law would make texting subject to sec-ondary enforceme nt. That means police could cite driv-ers for it only if they had been pulled over for another viola-tion such as speeding. An initial violation would lead to a $30 fine and if tex-ting resulted in a crash the driver would be assessed six Parsons GUN SALES LEGISLATION 700 Club re-enactsrobberyattempt By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comThe street outside was lined with cars, as it was little more than a month ago, but this time inside there wasnt a man with a loaded gun. This time, the men had cameras instead. Jacquie Haglers story of holy boldness when she shouted down a armed robber at a Jan. 25 jewelry party in her home, invoking the name of the Lord, has spread across the country.

AROUND FLORIDA House panel OKs right-to-speak bill TALLAHASSEE Floridas citizens would get the right to be heard and not just seen at local government meet-ings under a bill that has cleared a House panel. The Government Operations subcommittee on Wednesday approved the bill (HB 23) by a vote of 12-0. The measure follows appeals court rulings on Floridas open-government sunshine law. Those decisions interpreted the law as requiring officials to meet in public but not requiring them to give citi-zens a voice. The bill does allow governments to set time limits on public comment and exempts some meetings of an emergency or purely ceremonial nature. It also allows enforcement by court order. A similar bill (SB 50) is under consider-ation in the Senate.Man arrested in womans stabbing OCALA Authorities say a pregnant Ocala woman who was stabbed more than 30 times is recovering in a hospital. Police say 59-year-old Samuel Roy Cone II was charged Tuesday with attempted murder after stabbing 40-year-old Jill Feingold. The Ocala Star-Banner reports Feingold under-went surgery in Ocala after the Monday attack. She was then transferred to Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville where she and the unborn baby are listed in critical condition. She is 22 weeks pregnant. Police say Cone is the uncle of Feingolds hus-band. Officers took Cone into custody outside the home, where he told police he was sorry but they took all I had. Ocala police Det. Mat Steckman says the attack apparently stems from a dispute over who will inherit Cones mothers estate.Senate passes ethics legislation TALLAHASSEE The Florida Senate kicked off the 2013 session Tuesday by unanimously passing a pair of ethics measures designed to clamp down on the ability of public officials to cash in on the system. The fast-tracked proposals were top pri-orities of Senate President Don Gaetz, a Niceville Republican, who has watched a number of elect-ed officials in his home district in the Florida Panhandle face ethics problems in recent years. Both measures passed on a 40-0 vote without debate. Public office is a public trust, Gaetz said after-ward. This legislation means the Florida Senate is serious about ethics reform.House passes election overhaul TALLAHASSEE The state House on Tuesday voted once again to overhaul the states elec-tions law, this time by part-ly undoing changes from 2011 that were blamed for confusion and long lines at the polls in the last elec-tion. On the first day of the annual legislative session, House members approved 118-1 a bill (HB 7013) that increases the permitted days of early voting from eight to 14. It allows early-voting polling places at more kinds of sites, like fair-grounds, civic centers and convention centers. And it sets a 75-word limit on proposed initial ballot sum-maries to constitutional amendments. The bill also restores the possibility of early vot-ing on the Sunday before Election Day, when blacks often vote after church in a tradition known as souls to the polls.Man found guilty in shooting death GAINESVILLE A Gainesville man has been found guilty of first-degree murder in a drug-related shooting. An Alachua County jury found 26-year-old Jonathan Rashad Peterson guilty Tuesday. He faces a man-datory life sentence. Authorities say Peterson had arranged to buy marijuana from 26-year-old Eugene Shelton at the Rocky Point apartments in August last year. Instead, Peterson killed Shelton and took the drugs.Customs seizes $4M in pot MIAMI U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents have seized a ship-ment of marijuana worth an estimated $4 million at Miamis seaport. Authorities said Tuesday more than two tons of marijuana was intercepted in a shipping container from South America. The pot was in 40 bags inside the container. CBP says agents became suspicious about the container because it appeared to have been tampered with. Drug-sniff-ing dogs were brought in and alerted to the pres-ence of drugs. Dancer admits organizing Bolshoi attackMOSCOW A Russian ballet star who most recently played the title role in Ivan the Terrible at the famed Bolshoi Theater has confessed that he organized the acid attack on the theaters ballet chief, Moscow police said Wednesday. Sergei Filin, the artistic director of the Bolshoi ballet, suffered severe burns to his eyes and face on Jan. 17 when a masked attacker threw a jar of sulfuric acid in his face as he returned home late at night. The 42-year-old former dancer is undergo-ing treatment in Germany. Star dancer Pavel Dmitrichenko, 29, confessed to masterminding the attack, and two other men confessed to being accomplices, police said in a statement. I organized that attack but not to the extent that it occurred, a bleary-eyed Dmitrichenko said in footage released by Russian police. Moscow police said in a statement that investigators believe that Dmitrichenko harbored personal enmity against Filin. Investigators got suspicious of Dmitrichenko when they found out that he had recently been in a close contact with an unemployed convict. The suspects were making inquiries about Filins schedule and where-abouts and bought SIM cards for mobile phones registered under fake names, police said.Report: TV star Valerie Harper has brain cancer NEW YORK Valerie Harper, who played Rhoda Morgenstern on televisions The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spinoff, Rhoda, has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. People magazine reported on its website Wednesday that the 73-yearold actress received the news on Jan. 15. Tests revealed she has leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, a rare condition that occurs when cancer cells spread into the fluid-filled mem-brane surrounding the brain. The report says Harpers doctors have said she has as little as three months to live. I dont think of dying, Harper told the magazine in a cover inter-view. I think of being here now. Harpers character, Rhoda, was one of televisions most beloved characters during the 1970s, and the tart-tongued, self-deprecating Rhoda made Harper a star. She won three consecutive Emmys (1971-73) as supporting actress on Mary plus another for outstanding lead actress for Rhoda, which ran from 1974-78. Furlong sentenced to 6 months in jail LOS ANGELES Court records show a judge has sentenced Edward Furlong to six months in jail for vio-lating his probation in a 2010 case. The Terminator 2 star was accused of disobeying the terms of his sen-tence in a domestic violence case in which he was convicted of violating a restraining order. The 35-year-old actor has been the subject of restraining orders filed by both his ex-wife and an ex-girlfriend. Furlong was charged in January with battery on his ex-girlfriend in a case that remains pending. Furlongs attorney Brian Michaels did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.

He really did. Except for the eyes.The would-be robber had distinctive blue eyes and was wearing a blue and white bandana that covered most of his face, according to mul-tiple witnesses. Lee has brown eyes. The photos city police investigators put in front of the women to identify Lee were black and white. Lee was held at the county jail for 40 days before his release on Tuesday. Lake City Police Department policy does not specify that a photo lineup has to be in color, Steve Shaw, the departments public information officer said. He would not speculate as to whether color photos should have been used in this case. According to LCPD policy, however, a photo lineup shall be presented to only one witness at a time, and if multiple witness are present at the same place at the same time, ... they shall be kept separate to assure that they are not aware of the responses of the other witnesses .... One of the guests at the jewelry party, Christa Herring, said a police officer came to Haglers house that night with a photo lineup contain-ing six black-and-white photos, and placed the array on the kitchen coun-ter. Herring said the officer then asked the four to six women who were still there, as a group, if they recognized anyone in the photos. Herring said she doesnt remember who, but one of the women point-ed to the photo of Lee and said he resembled the man who attempted to rob them. Shaw said the officer had only taken one photo array and had to leave to make copies of it for each of the other witnesses. Shaw said LCPDs Criminal Investigations Division reviewed the case and said the photo line-up was conducted to police policy. He also said the state attorneys office told police officials Wednesday the department had done nothing wrong as it relates to probable cause to arrest. Sharron Ballance, who had the gun pointed at her head during the robbery attempt, said she doesnt remember the exact sequence of events, but does remember identify-ing the suspect on her own from the photo array. She said all the other women were in the room when the photo lineup was presented to her. Ballance said police arrived on the scene within minutes and were sup-portive of the victims. I do commend them on how fast they arrived and how supportive they were, she said. Hagler said she could not remember details of how the photo lineup was conducted, but thought she identified Lee while away from the other women. Later that night, Herring said, officers came back to the house and told the remaining witnesses they had apprehended a suspect who had tried to rob someone at an ATM. We need you to tell us if he was the one, Herring said the officer told the women. I said, I would have to see his eyes, she said. Herring said she was nearest to the armed intruder and had a direct view of him. She said his eyes were blue. I was told that he (Lee) had brown eyes, Herring said. That poor guy. Ballance said she did identify Lee as the suspect in the photo array, but when she was taken by police cruis-er to identify him outside his house, she couldnt say for sure he was the man who tried to rob them. Herring said she did not identify Lee as the suspect, either in the photo array or in person. Police officers had also taken witnesses to view two other suspects, botho of whom Herring said were clearly not the man who had been in Haglers house. That night, Lee was arrested for home invasion and attempted rob-bery. He is no longer a suspect in the case, according to State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister. According to LCPD Officer Craig Strickland, Lee is no longer a suspect in the attempted robbery of a woman in a bank park-ing lot that night, either. a live television morning show. The 700 Club went on the air first in 1966, and is one of the longest con-tinuously on-air programs in television history. Rod Thomas, a segment producer with the 700 Club, was in charge of captur-ing the story for the televi-sion program. Thomas said the film crew flew down to Florida from Virginia Beach, Va., on Tuesday and filmed another story in Jacksonville. We travel around and tell stories about the power of God changing peoples lives, Thomas said. Thomas said hes worked as a producer and writer for the 700 Club for about seven years. He said he expects the film they took on Wednesday to be broad-cast in about four to five weeks. What we are trying to do is to tell our viewers the story of these particular ladies and how they would not give into an armed rob-ber, Thomas said. And to portray the power of Jesus.

Tyler Hagler, 23, Jacquie Haglers stepson, plays the role of the gunman in a re-enactment of the Jan. 25 home invasion and attempt-ed armed robbery. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Department of Corrections Work Release Center inmate was arrested Tuesday afternoon approxi-mately four hours after he failed to return from a sched-uled work detail. Edward M. McMillan, 37, 3757 NW Huntsboro St., was charged with escape in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility without bond. According to Lake City Police Department reports, around 2:03 p.m. officer Nikki Gunter was dis-patched to the DOC Work Release Center at 1099 DOT Glen, in reference to an escaped prisoner. Gunter spoke to an official at the work release center who reportedly told her McMillan was expect-ed to return to the facility around 12:30 p.m. after he was permitted to leave on a work furlough. The offi-cial told Gunter McMillan left around 10:30 a.m. and no contact had been made with him by the time offi-cials filed the report. During the investigation a Be On The Look Out advisory was issued by the Lake City Communication Center and around 4:30 p.m. McMillan was found at a Washington Street funeral home by an off duty correc-tions officer. McMillan was detained and taken to the Columbia County Detention Facility without incident. Reports indicate authorities performed a drug test on McMillan at the request of DOC officials. The test returned a positive result for cocaine, according to authorities, and McMillan reportedly said he went to a womans house and smoked crack cocaine. McMillan Escapee captured after short search STANDOFF: Man charged Continued From Page 1Apatched to a local residence in reference to a sexual battery involving a child. The deputy spoke to the child, who reportedly told him that Parsons had had sexual contact with her. Authorities later learned that Parsons was upset and making statements about harming himself. He alleg-edly told authorities he had taken pills and that if anyone tried to stop him he was going out with a firefight. Several deputies responded to a house on U.S. 441 south of Lake City on Tuesday. Due to the resi-dence being on a main thor-oughfare, deputies closed the highway near County Road 18 for about 20 min-utes. A law enforcement officer spoke to Parsons on the telephone to conduct a well being check and to make sure he wasnt armed. He told authorities he had been having problems with his wife and he wanted to be left alone. Authorities were able to talk Parsons out of his home, and he was taken into custody. Additional charges may be filed after completion of the sheriffs office investi-gation, reports said.

I n early February, news trick-led out of Pakistans remote tribal belt of two lethal drone strikes that killed up to nine people, including two senior leaders of al-Qaida. Nothing terribly unusual about that. The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, which maintains a tally of drone strikes, says there have been 364 drone strikes in Pakistan since 2004, 312 of them carried out on President Barack Obamas watch. The drones have become a weapon of choice of the Obama admin-istration, which has greatly broad-ened the areas where they are deployed and loosened the rules of engagement, including their use against U.S. citizens abroad. The widespread use of drones has become an issue on Capitol Hill and threatened to delay the confir-mation of National Security Adviser John Brennan to be CIA director. That obstacle seemed to have been overcome this week when the White House granted the Senate Intelligence Committee access to all of the top-secret legal opinions governing the use of drone strikes to kill suspected terrorists over-seas. Following the February strikes, there was the usual outrage in the Pakistani media and the almost-automatic formal protest to the U.S. Embassy by the Pakistani foreign ministry. However, according to The New York Times, there was something significantly different about these strikes: The U.S. wasnt involved. Three American officials with knowledge of the drone program told the Times that the U.S. did not carry out those attacks. They were not ours, said one, who insisted the U.S. had not engaged in kinetic activity -actual attacks as opposed to surveillance by the drones -since January. If not the U.S., who? Suspicion immediately fell on the Pakistani military, which has a drone capac-ity of its own, and, given the unpop-ularity of drone strikes with the Pakistani people, had every reason to blame the attacks on Americans. The Times noted a certain irony in this, because in the early years of the drone attacks the Pakistani military would falsely claim respon-sibility to conceal CIA involvement and perhaps to enhance its own image for technical prowess. When the fog of possible disinformation dissipates, it may become clear that Pakistan and likely other nations are develop-ing a sophisticated drone capacity -and that because the U.S. is the nation most closely associated with the pilotless aircraft, we will con-tinue, rightly or wrongly, to take the blame. A s we grow in this county, there is a growing prob-lem. Trash and junk everywhere! Our road-ways are covered in litter left there by uncaring, irrespon-sible and possibly just plain ignorant people. Throwing trash out of your vehicle is causing your tax dollars to be spent to address a messy issue that should not be occurring in the first place. Those that use residential neighborhoods as a shortcut, especially in the morning and afternoon during your commute and choose to deposit your trash in those neighborhoods, shame on you. Of course those folks that live in exclusive areas of town have restrictions and road diversions to prevent this. But those of us that live in older neighborhoods, we are at the mercy of habitual litterbugs. There should be a county ordinance to require people to purchase a hard-sided container in which to place trash at the roadside. Are you listening, county commissioners? (Most likely not.) Placing trash bags out, especially if they are left at the roadside days before scheduled pick up, is just an invitation to ani-mals to tear open the bags and dis-tribute the trash. You can purchase containers that are not expensive and this would improve the litter problem greatly. Further, those that have just plain junk in their yard, on their carport, under tarps, along the street and roadways you need to get rid of the junk. Your house is your own, but when that mess makes it look like a perpetual flea market on your street, you are being totally inconsiderate of your neighbors. If you are NEVER going to use the stuff, not going to sell the stuff, or never going to fix and drive that abandoned vehicle, stop continually adding to the mess and GET RID OF IT! Fred Sanford was a television character. We dont need Fred Sanfords in our neighborhoods. Where is code enforcement when you need them? This countywide problem could be solved with a little effort from everyone and cost us basically noth-ing. Here are some suggestions: Go through your junk outside your residence, especially if you live in close quarters in a residential neighborhood, and throw out items that are unusable and consider sell-ing the remainder at the flea mar-ket; get it away from your house. You may have a financial windfall that you were not even aware of. If you stop at a convenience store or fast food restaurant in the morning or afternoon and eat your foods on the way to work/school or going home, put the trash back in your bag and hold it in your car until you get to work/school or home and put it in the trash. This takes basically little to no effort. Its called being responsible. Use your ashtray if you smoke tobacco. A cigarette or cigar butt, with the trash that is generated from their packaging, is a big part of the problem. Chewing tobacco wads, their packages, and spit con-tainers are also a problem. Dont throw that stuff out. Not only is a lit cigarette or cigar butt a fire hazard and tobacco wads sickening, they are just plain nasty. Since drinking alcoholic beverages while driving is illegal anyway, litter from bottles and cans should not be a problem in the first place; but it is. Drink responsibly and not while driving; dispose of you con-tainers properly. If you are NEVER going to drive that disabled vehicle that has been sitting in your yard for years, sell it. It is an eyesore and haven for rodents or other animals that find those areas inviting. It is also a haz-ard to curious children. When you go out in the morning to get the paper and see litter in the road in front of your house, go ahead and pick it up and place it in your trash can. Simple and easy. It called being a responsible citizen. When your yard sale is over, go back and pick up your signs. Dont leave them on the roadside or taped to a public traffic sign or utility pole for weeks to be an eyesore. You put it there, you take it away. If you do not have a hard side container to roll to the curb for your weekly trash pick-up purchase one, it does not cost a fortune. Common sense should tell you that if you leave a bag of garbage at the curb for a long time, animals will get into the trash and spread it everywhere. Now there are those that will say their rights to be litterbugs and pack rats are their rights. Also, what they do on their property is their business. That may be true, but there are laws, unfortunately with little enforcement, that govern these things. Your trash and junk should not be a problem for some individual(s) or the taxpayers as a whole. Are there bigger problems in the world? You bet, but this is one that easily correctable and would cost us basically nothing but an increased awareness and minimal effort to clean up Columbia County.

Yet, for all that, the governor hewed closely to familiar themes. He neglected to address some of the loom-ing issues likely to ambush the state. What about the Citizens Property Insurance overexposure, which could end up hitting all ratepayers should a major storm strike? Scott ignored [this and many other] matters, an option the state wont have. We dont mean to be harsh. Overall, we thought the speech a success.... Democrats may argue over how much credit Scott deserves for Floridas economic rebound, but as the governor aptly put it, that there is a debate about who deserves credit for the new jobs celebrates the fact that our economy is once again creating jobs. The governor surely does not deserve all the credit, but we find it impossible to believe his tax-cutting, business-friendly policies did not help. We trust his plan to cut manufacturing taxes will provide an additional inducement for businesses to locate or expand here.... Scott surprised and angered his tea party followers by agreeing to accept the federal expan-sion of Medicaid under Obamacare, something the Legislature appears reluctant to do. His decision is being widely interpreted as political opportunism, but the federal health care plan remains almost as unpopular with independent voters as with Republicans. His sincerity should not be discounted. It was disappointing Scott addressed the decision only briefly, saying after losing the fight against the Affordable Health Care Act in the Supreme Court and in the November election: Our options are either having Floridians pay to fund this program in other states while denying health care to our citizens or using federal funding to help some of the poorest in our state with the Medicaid program as we explore other health care improvements. We would have liked to have heard Scott, a former health care executive, expand on what could be done to ensure Medicaid expansion does not become, as House Speaker Will Weatherford fears, a growing drain on taxpayers or what should be done in the event the Legislature rejects expanding the program. Surely, Scott has some strategies in mind. He provided no clues Tuesday. And that was reflective of a speech that played it safe, and provided little to disagree with but much to question.

Crystal Black, of Lake City, among Jam audition winnersFrom staff reportsLIVE OAK Among the winners of the solo category for the Suwannee River Jam Audition at the recent Steinhatchee Crab Festival was Crystal Black of Lake City. Black, Emily Brooke and Ken Walker will compete April 13 in the Jam Audition finals at The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park for the chance to perform at the Suwannee River Jam May 1-4 at the park. Ive been able to do this audition a couple of times before and its so exciting, said Black, 26, of Lake City and Trenton, said. I competed last year and performed at the Jam. Black is an avid artist, competing in many contests and performing all over North Florida as she tries to make her way to Nashville. She performs at various fes-tivals and frequently opens for Nashville country artists concerts. Shes headlined the Olustee Festival, The Music Arts Dance and Drama festival, the S & S Food Stores 50th anniversary and performed at the annual Retiree RV rally. The highlight of her career, so far, was being chosen as the opening act for national recording art-ist Easton Corbin and an audience of more than 2,000 last year. During the April 13 finals at The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, the Steinhatchee winners will compete with other Jam Audition winners for a chance to perform at the Jam. Two competitions coming up will choose more contestants while Willow Veda, Nalani Quintello, Chloe Davis, Jeremiah Ross, J.R. Hernandez and Jamie Howard have already been chosen at auditions in Lake City and Live Oak to go to the finals. Crystal Black GUNS: Continued From Page 1Apoints. Points lead to increased insur-ance rates. This epidemic has to stop, said Sen. Nancy Detert, a Venice Republican and the bills sponsor. Courtney Heidelberg, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, said recent statistics on texting and driving are not readily available. Florida highway safety records show, however, of the 171,538 Florida crash reports filed during the first 10 months of 2011, 149 of drivers in those wrecks were known to be texting. No doubt, texting and driving at the same time can be dangerous. The federal government says a texting driver is 23 times more likely to crash than one not texting. A study by AAA put the figure lower at six times. Drivers who text do take their eyes off the road for almost 5 sec-onds, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which regulates the trucking industry. At 55 mph, a driver can cross the equivalent of a football field while not looking. Thirty-nine states and the District of Columbia already have bans. An array of interest groups supports the bill, including AAA, the AARP, the Florida Sheriffs Association, the Florida PTA, and groups represent-ing automobile dealers, automobile makers and trial attorneys. Sen. Aaron Bean, a Fernandina Beach Republican, said he supports the bill because he has a 15-year-old at home about to become a driver. We want to make sure kids across Florida know this is a no-no, he said. One in seven drivers have admitted to reading or sending a text mes-sage while driving, according to state figures, and nearly half of all 16and 17-year-old drivers text and drive. Detert explained that the bill wasnt meant to target typing-free texting, or talk to text. Sen. Audrey Gibson, a Jacksonville Democrat, leaned over to Sen. Chris Smith and whispered, Dont you have to push a button to talk-to-text? Smith showed her how it worked on his phone, after which she said to him, I think that should be included. But she later voted for the measure. House Speaker Will Weatherford has said hes not taking a position on the no-texting bill, offering to let his members vote their conscience. Critics say that instead of creating new law, police should enforce care-less driving and reckless driving laws already on the books. A 2010 study by the Highway Loss Data Institute, which looks at insur-ance claims, said crashes didnt go down in states that banned texting by drivers. In fact, it found that reported collisions went up slightly. The researchers guessed that bans are making a bad situation worse by causing drivers, knowing its illegal, to move their phones down and out of sight when they text. That takes their eyes even further away from the road. TEXTING: Bills chances of passing House doubtful Continued From Page 1Apeople addicted to drugs or committed to mental institutions. One party in all gun sales would have to be a licensed dealer under the measure. The Senate version of the measure is sponsored by Sen. Maria Sachs, D-Delray Beach. Its not the only bill filed in the Legislature that would create additional requirements related to gun use. Democratic Sen. Audrey Gibson of Jacksonville filed a bill (SB 1678) earlier this month that would require anyone wanting to buy ammuni-tion to have gone through an anger management course. The bill would make it a misdemeanor to sell ammo to anyone who hasnt suc-cessfully completed a two-hour class on anger management techniques. In an interview, Gibson cited the shooting death of an unarmed Jacksonville teenager in a recent fight over loud music as an example of the need for the proposal. She acknowledged that the bill itself is making some people angry. If youre angry about taking a two-hour anger management class, maybe you might want to take it, Gibson said. The House version of that legislation (HB 1229) is sponsored by House Democratic Leader Perry Thurston of Plantation. By LINDSEY TANNERAP Medical WriterCHICAGO States with the most gun control laws have the fewest gun-relat-ed deaths, according to a study that suggests sheer quantity of measures might make a difference. But the research leaves many questions unan-swered and wont settle the debate over how policy-makers should respond to recent high-profile acts of gun violence. In the dozen or so states with the most gun con-trol-related laws, far fewer people were shot to death or killed themselves with guns than in the states with the fewest laws, the study found. Overall, states with the most laws had a 42 per-cent lower gun death rate than states with the least number of laws. The results are based on an analysis of 2007-2010 gun-related homicides and suicides from the fed-eral Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The researchers also used data on gun control mea-sures in all 50 states com-piled by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, a well-known gun control advocacy group. They com-pared states by dividing them into four equal-sized groups according to the number of gun laws. The results were published online Wednesday in the medical journal JAMA Internal Medicine. More than 30,000 people nationwide die from guns every year nationwide, and theres evidence that gun-related violent crime rates have increased since 2008, a journal editorial noted. During the four-years studied, there were nearly 122,000 gun deaths, 60 per-cent of them suicides. Our motivation was really to understand what are the interventions that can be done to reduce firearm mortality, said Dr. Eric Fleegler, the studys lead author and an emergency department pediatrician and researcher at Boston Childrens Hospital. He said his study suggests but doesnt prove that gun laws or something else led to fewer gun deaths. Fleegler is also among hundreds of doctors who have signed a petition urging President Barack Obama and Congress to pass gun safety legislation, a campaign organized by the advocacy group Doctors for America. Gun rights advocates have argued that strict gun laws have failed to curb high murder rates in some cities, including Chicago and Washington, D.C. Fleegler said his study didnt examine city-level laws, while gun control advocates have said local laws arent as effective when neighboring states have lax laws. Previous research on the effectiveness of gun laws has had mixed results, and its a very challeng-ing area to study, said Dr. Daniel Webster, director of the Johns Hopkins Center For Gun Policy. He was not involved in the current study. More gun laws equals fewer deaths, 50-state study saysASSOCIATED PRESS FILETwo handguns lie at a crime scene in New Orleans in 2009. States with the most gun-control laws have the fewest gun-related deaths, according to a stu dy published Wednesday in the medical journal JAMA Internal Medicine.

Jeb Bush more open to a future White House bid By KEN THOMASAssociated PressWASHINGTON Jeb Bush has long resisted pressure from supporters to run for president. Now the former Florida gover-nor is signaling that hes at least open to the idea, a shift that comes as he promotes a new book and Republicans struggle to rebound after President Barack Obamas re-elec-tion. Im not saying yes. Im just not saying no, Bush told NBC News earlier this week, one of a series of such comments hes made as he talks about the book Immigration Wars in television inter-views and forums. Comments like those from Bush, 60, are in sharp contrast to past refusals to even entertain the idea of following in the foot-steps of his older brother, former President George W. Bush, and their father, former President George H.W. Bush. Less than three years before the first Republican presidential primaries, Bushs words offer a window into his evolving thinking on a future run. Republicans and former advisers said that, if noth-ing else, hes made clear to political operatives and donors that they shouldnt count him out for 2016. Hes sent a very strong signal this week that he, for the first time, is going to seriously, seriously con-sider running, said Cory Tilley, a former Bush aide in Florida. Its the signal that a lot of people have been waiting to hear. The scion to the Bush political dynasty left the Florida governors office in 2007 but since then has remained a major fig-ure in the GOP, mainly through his efforts to influence education and immigration policy. His book is his latest step on that front; in it, he urges Congress to revamp a broken immi-gration system that he says is holding back the nations future and eco-nomic growth. He caused a stir and irked some Republicans by writing that he did not support a pathway to citi-zenship for undocument-ed immigrants. Bush had expressed support for a pathway in the past. ASSOCIATED PRESSFormer Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is now indicating that me might consider running for president.
By LAURAN NEERGAARD AP Medical Writer WASHINGTON A change in testing could nearly triple the number of women diagnosed with diabetes during pregnancy, but would catching milder cases help mother or baby? A government panel is urg ing more research to find that out before doctors make the switch. Gestational diabetes the kind that strikes during pregnancy is a growing problem. More women are getting it as they wait until their 30s or later to have a baby, and as they increas ingly begin their pregnan cies already overweight. This is one of the most common complications of pregnancy, and just about every woman gets checked for it. Thats because if moms high blood sugar isnt controlled, the fetus can grow too large, lead ing to C-sections and early deliveries. There are other prob lems, too: Mom can get dangerous high blood pres sure; the baby can be born with low blood sugar; the babys risk of obesity in childhood is increased. And while this kind of diabetes usually disappears when the babys born, the moth er is left with another risk. Months or years later, half of women who had it wind up developing full-fledged Type 2 diabetes. Doctors today diag nose gestational diabetes in about 5 percent to 6 percent of U.S. pregnan cies, or about 240,000 a year, according to experts convened this week by the National Institutes of Health. Most U.S. doctors use a two-step testing method. But now theres a push for doctors to switch to a sim pler one-step test thats used in other parts of the world. The one-step approach, backed by the American Diabetes Association and World Health Organization, isnt just about the conve nience of getting diagnosed in one doctor visit or two. It also would lower the blood sugar threshold for diagnos ing the condition. The implications of this are very, very large, and there are so many unan swered questions, said Dr. Catherine Spong of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. On Wednesday, the NIHappointed panel agreed, and said many more pregnant women would be classified with gestational diabetes 15 to 20 percent if doctors widely adopted the one-step approach. The more aggressive approach treats milder cases with diet and exer cise, not medication. But thats still a lot of women who would get extra medi cal care, such as nutritionist visits and doctor checks of their blood sugar and their babys growth. That could add up to hundreds of mil lions of dollars in health costs annually. But theres been no study of whether treating cases milder than are diag nosed today makes any difference to the health of mother and baby, the experts concluded. By LINDSEY TANNER AP Medical Writer CHICAGO Want to know your chances of dying in the next 10 years? Here are some bad signs: get ting winded walking sev eral blocks, smoking, and having trouble pushing a chair across the room. Thats according to a mortality index devel oped by San Francisco researchers for people older than 50. The test scores may sat isfy peoples morbid curios ity, but the researchers say their 12-item index is most ly for use by doctors. It can help them decide whether costly health screenings or medical procedures are worth the risk for patients unlikely to live 10 more years. Its best to take the test with a doctor, who can dis cuss what the score means in the context of patients own medical history, the study authors say. The index wasnt meant as guidance about how to alter your lifestyle, said lead author Dr. Marisa Cruz of the University of California, San Francisco. Instead, doctors can use the results to help patients understand the pros and cons of such things as rigorous diabetes treat ment, colon cancer screen ing and tests for cervical cancer. Those may not be safe or appropriate for very sick, old people likely to die before cancer ever develops. The 12 items on the index are assigned points; fewer total points means better odds. Men automatically get 2 points. In addition to that, men and women ages 60 to 64 get 1 point; ages 70 to 74 get 3 points; and 85 or over get 7 points. Two points each: a current or previous cancer diagnosis, excluding minor skin cancers; lung disease limiting activity or requir ing oxygen; heart failure; smoking; difficulty bath ing; difficulty managing money because of health or memory problem; dif ficulty walking several blocks. One point each: dia betes or high blood sugar; difficulty pushing large objects, such as a heavy chair; being thin or normal weight. The highest, or worst, score is a 26, with a 95 per cent chance of dying within 10 years. To get that, youd have to be a man at least 85 years old with all the above conditions. For a score of zero, which means a 3 percent chance of dying within 10 years, youd have to be a woman younger than 60 without any of those infir mities but at least slight ly overweight. Its hardly surprising that a sick, older person would have a much higher chance of dying than some one younger and more vig orous, and its well known that women generally live longer than men. But why would being overweight be less risky than being of normal weight or slim? One possible reason is that thinness in older age could be a sign of illness, Cruz said. Other factors could also play a role, so the index should be seen as pro viding clues but not the gospel truth, the research suggests. The findings were pub lished Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Grants from the National Institute on Aging and the American Federation for Aging Research helped pay for the study. The researchers created the index by analyzing data on almost 20,000 Americans over 50 who took part in a national health survey in 1998. They tracked the participants for 10 years. Nearly 6,000 participants died during that time. They previously used the test to predict the risk of dying within four years. They said their new effort shows the same index can be used to predict 10-year mortality. Dr. Stephan Fihn, a University of Washington professor of medicine and health quality mea surement specialist with Veterans Affairs health services in Seattle, said the index seems valid and methodologically sound.

More pregnant women may need diabetes care Drugmaker faces civil, criminal fines Associated Press NEWARK, N.J. A New Jersey-based drugmaker agreed on Tuesday to pay $45 million to resolve charges that it improp erly marketed its weight-gain drug to frail seniors particularly vulnerable to its side effects, federal officials said Tuesday. Officials from Woodcliff Lake-based Par Pharmaceutical Cos. pleaded guilty on behalf of the company to a charge of criminal misbranding. Par CEO Paul V. Campanelli admitted the company had improperly marketed its Megace ES drug for treating anorexia and malnutrition in nursing home residents and dying hos pice patients even though they did not have AIDS. The drug is only approved for helping AIDS patients gain weight. Researchers list 12 factors that affect mortality.

By MIKE STOBBE AP Medical Writer NEW YORK Health officials are reporting an alarming increase in some dangerous superbugs at U.S. hospitals. These superbugs from a common germ family have become extremely resis tant to treatment with anti biotics. Only 10 years ago, such resistance was hardly ever seen in this group. Infections from these superbugs are still uncom mon. But in the first six months of last year, nearly 200 U.S. hospitals about 4 percent saw at least one case, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevent reported Tuesday. I would call them a major threat emerging in our hospitals, said Dr. Arjun Srinivasan, an infec tious disease expert at the CDC. Health officials call them nightmare bacteria that have now been seen in 42 states and threaten to spread their resistance to more and more of their bacterial brethren. We only have a limited window of opportunity to stop spread of these super bugs, said CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden. At a press conference Tuesday, he said he was sounding an alarm. The CDC urged hospital workers to watch for the infections and take steps to prevent passing the germs to other patients. The report did not include better-known superbugs like the staph infection MRSA or the intestinal bug known as Cdiff, which have plagued hospitals. It focused on the super bugs that have emerged from one specific bacteria group. At least five of the 70 kinds in that family have developed resistance to a class of antibiotic called carbapenems consid ered one of the last lines of defense against hard-totreat bugs. Some of those bacteria seem to have terrifying potential. Among them: Klebsiella pneumoniae, a bug that killed at least seven patients at a fed eral research hospital in Bethesda, Md.; and those made resistant by a gene called NDM-1, named for New Delhi. The bacteria usually live harmlessly in the gut but can cause pneumonia, and urinary tract and blood stream infections if they get into other parts of the bod ies of patients with weak ened immune systems. As many as half the patients who get the bloodstream infections die, Srinivasan said. However, CDC did not provide figures on deaths attributed to these super bugs. In 2001, U.S. hospitals reported that only 1 per cent of samples from the bacterial family were resis tant to the antibiotic car bapenems. By 2011, it had risen to 4 percent. It was more of an issue in the nations 400 special ized, long-term hospitals 18 percent of them reported seeing such a superbug. The Northeast had the most, followed by the South. U.S. health officials are keeping a close eye on the NDM-1 superbugs, which first showed up in India in 2010 and have been seen as more of a concern in other parts of the world. Of the 30 cases in the U.S., about half have been report ed since July, including eight patients at a Denver hospital. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, MARCH 7, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 8AHealth 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.

The Food and Drug Administration panel voted 12-9 that the risks of the inhalable osteoporosis drug outweigh its benefits when used to treat brittle bones. The drug, known chemi cally as calcitonin salmon, has been prescribed for osteoporosis in postmeno pausal women since the 1980s. Currently, Novartis and Upsher-Smith market the drug in nasal spray form as Miacalcin and Fortical, respectively. But health authorities around the world have been reviewing the drugs safety after two recent stud ies showed a slightly high er rate of cancer among patients taking calcitonin pills. The drug is also avail able as an injection to treat other conditions, includ ing excess calcium in the blood. The European Medicines Agency concluded last July that calcitonin should no longer be used to treat osteoporosis, due to the drugs cancer risk. An internal FDA memo released ahead of Tuesdays meeting said its difficult to draw a direct link between the drug and cancer. However, the potential for a cancer risk with calcito nin salmon therapy cannot be ignored. The majority of all calcitonin salmon trials showed an increased risk estimate.

DEAR ABBY: I am writing to you because I can share this anonymously. I am close to 60 years old and Im terrified of the dentist. Every time I pick up the phone to make an appointment I get so anx-ious I feel like Im going to die. Do you think I will be able to find a caring, com-passionate and nonjudg-mental dentist? Are they out there? Sometimes I wish I could die instead of going to the dentist. Am I crazy? -MRS. ANXIETY IN THE U.S.A. DEAR MRS. ANXIETY: Let me put it this way -if youre crazy, you have a lot of company. Many people fear going to the dentist. However, there have been improvements in the field since you were a child -including sedation for people who choose not to be there while their dental problems are being attended to. Good dental health is very important to our over-all health, so please dont put off any further making an appointment. Tell the person who is booking the appointment what your needs are, and if that dentist cant accommodate you, ask for a referral to one who can. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have been a nanny for four fami-lies over the last 10 years. I am now working for a family of five. I dont make a lot of money, but I enjoy what I do. My problem is all the gift-buying I feel required to do -such as on the childrens birthdays, Christmas and the moms birth of more babies. My employer is expecting yet another baby this summer and her 3-year-old has another birthday coming up. Im tired of the gift-buying and really cant afford to do it anymore. When the new baby is born, I am tempted to just say Congratulations! Any sug-gestions? -GIFTED OUT DEAR GIFTED OUT: Yes. When the newest addition to the family arrives, give your employ-er a nice card. You should not be expected to come up with a gift. You are already giving these chil-dren loving and respon-sible care and that is gift enough. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: During the first year of our mar-riage, my husband cheated on me with women from his past as well as new encounters. When I con-fronted him, he promised to stop. He would then call and email these women, and tell them I was check-ing up on him and hed contact them later. This has gone on for years. He swears hes no longer cheating, and we have sought counseling -which I stopped because the counselor and I agreed that my husband didnt think he had a problem. When I confront him with my suspicions, he insists that I am driving him away by accusing him. He is very arrogant, and people who dont know him believe hes a great guy and I am the problem. I have considered revenge cheating, but it goes against my morals. I think about divorcing him, but then I think -what if I am wrong? What if he really is being faithful? What should I do? I love him. -UNSURE IN TEXAS DEAR UNSURE: I agree that revenge cheating is not the solution to your problem. Hire a private detective and get to the bottom of this. If youre wrong, you need counsel-ing to resolve your inse-curities. However, if hes cheating, you will know you havent been imagin-ing things and can decide rationally if its in your best interests to continue being married to a womanizer. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Sit back and relax. Time is on your side. Letting your emotions take over and making impulsive moves will be to your detri-ment. Recycle old ideas. A new and diverse approach will lead to greater pros-perity. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Youll be in control. Concentrate on what you want and go about getting it by offering what you can to people who have something to contribute in return. Business and personal partnerships will help you expand your interests. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Proceed with caution. Be careful not to offer too much for too little. Someone will try to take advantage of your good nature, skill and knowl-edge. Do your own thing and try not to depend on anyone else. Deception is apparent. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): A money deal will get rid of debt. Invest in your ideas. Turn a hobby into a prosperous endeavor. Love is on the rise, and enjoying the company of someone who shares your dream will help make it come true. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Change your direction or the way you live your life by capping your spending habits and pushing harder to make more money. Taking a second job or sizing down to cut your overhead will allow you to advance personally. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Greater interaction with like-minded people will lead to new friendships as well as opportunities to utilize your skills and diversify what you have to offer in unusual ways. Love is in the stars and a close connection will be enhanced. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your changeable atti-tude will result in criticism from someone you feel the need to please. Dont let emotions cause you to overreact or take on some-thing you dont feel good about pursuing. You must do whats best for you. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make a difference to the people you care about most. Your charm, original-ity and intuitive insight will lead you down a path that will intrigue some while making others proud to be by your side. Love is in the stars. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Observe whats going on around you. Now is not the time to make a move or to let others know what you are contemplat-ing. Take better care of your health and financial position. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Look for a deal that compliments your talents and utilizes your experience. A unique pre-sentation will lead to high demand for what you have to offer. Someone from your past will help you res-urrect an old plan. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Speak boldly and honestly. Honesty will win you favors and respect. Changing old habits will help you improve your living arrangements and lifestyle. Someone just as unique as you will want to join forces. Believe in your ability. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get involved in a cause that will bring you in contact with people who have the potential to help you advance. Taking the stage and presenting what you have to offer will result in a partnership with someone who compliments you. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
