City prevails in EEOC lawsuitBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA federal judge dismissed a racial discrimination and retaliation lawsuit filed by former Lake City Police Capt. Rudolph Davis Sr. against the City of Lake City. The decision, handed down Friday in Jacksonville by U.S. District Court Judge Marcia Morales Howard, follows a Dec. 20 summa-ry motion hearing. The judge ordered summary judgment on behalf of the city. City Manager Wendell Johnson offered a brief statement about the ruling. I have said from the beginning of this case that we have a justice system that we have to live with and I believe in it, he said. The summary judgment went in favor of the city, Mr. Davis has the right to appeal and I will withhold any comment in regards to the outcome until he has had his due process. Police Chief Argatha Gilmore said she was happy with ruling. We went through federal court proceedings with Mr. Davis allegations made against the city, and certainly were happy about the courts decision to dismiss the case and close the file on these allega-tions, she said. We will continue to stay focused with our primary goal and that is to provide quality customer service to the citizens of Lake City. Davis said he plans to appeal.Thats already in the making, he said. Its going to be an appeal.

RULING continued on 3A Chargesunlikelyin schoolpaddling State attorney says he doubts grounds for criminal case. Davis By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comThird Circuit State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister said he has been advised on the facts of the Richardson Middle School paddling complaint, and is investigating whether criminal charges are warranted. He said his office will continue its preliminary investiga-tion into the incident, but Siegmeister has doubts that charges will be filed. It doesnt seem likely to rise to criminal charges, pending further inves-tigation, he said Tuesday. William Murphy, assistant principal at RMS, paddled a student Friday at the school for misbehaving. The school had asked permission from the mother before paddling the student. She gave permission, but when she saw the results of the pad-dling, she felt the punishment was excessive. She said the paddling resulted in blood blisters and bruises across the buttocks and upper right thigh of her son. She then took her son to Shands at Lake Shore to docu-ment his injuries, and later filed a complaint with the Columbia County Sheriffs Office. The medical report from Lake Shore said there were contusions across the but-tocks and right upper thigh. The report documented pain and tenderness in the area. The sheriffs office sent the mothers complaint to the state attorneys office. The mother said she has also contacted Child Protective Services, which she said was doing its own investigation. Columbia County School Superintendent Terry Huddleston said on Monday that the school district was investigating the issue, but school policy allows for corpo-ral punishment with parental permission. When the mother was told Siegmeister doesnt believe criminal charges will be filed, she said she was furious. Has he seen the pictures, she said. Thats going to be my question to everybody else. I dont understand.

Audit finds city finances clean By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comLake City wont go broke anytime soon with about $13.6 million (or five months of operating expenses) held as reserve, accord-ing to the 2012 independent audit of the citys finances. The overall financial health of city government received an unqualified opinion, which is the best that you can get, Ron Whitesides, chairman of the audit depart-ment at Purvis, Gray and Co., told city coun-cil Monday. Purvis, Gray and Co. did the audit for the city. Audits are required by law to check the accuracy of financial statements and verify the local governments follow rules that con-trol the use of granted funds from federal and state sources. It sounds like theres something wrong with it, unqualified, but it means without qualifications (or reservations) by us, Whitesides said. It is actually a clean opin-ion and what you want. There was a recommendation from the auditor.

Rick Scott says he will write a $2,000 personal check to reim-burse campaign donations received from those linked to a gambling scandal. Scott said Tuesday he will donate the money to the Florida Veterans Foundation. The governor announced his decision a week after more than 50 people were arrested in a scandal involving Allied Veterans of the World. The organization ran nearly 50 Internet parlors in Florida with computerized slot machine-style games. Investigators said the charity gave about $6 mil-lion to veterans and much of the $300 million went to charity leaders. Those linked to the scandal have donated more than $1 million to Florida politicians and political parties. Scott received four checks. The Republican Party of Florida announced Friday it would donate $300,000 to the veterans foundation.Court: Facebook threats are crimes TALLAHASSEE In an apparent first in Florida law, a state appeals court ruled Monday that posting threats on ones personal Facebook page can be prosecuted under state law. The 1st District Court of Appeal decided in a crimi-nal case that a Facebook post could be considered a sending for the purposes of the sending written threats to kill or do bodily harm law, a second-degree felony. The language at issue was in a status that the defendant, Timothy Ryan OLeary, had posted on his Facebook page in 2011 about a female relative and her same-sex partner. The relative didnt see it but found out about it through another family member. OLeary said, in part, that he would tear the concrete up with your face and drag you back to your doorstep. He added, (You) better watch how ... you talk to people. You were born a woman and you better stay one. OLeary argued he couldnt be charged because he did not send the threatening language to his relative. A Duval County circuit judge denied his request to dis-miss the charges. After the state dropped one of two counts, OLeary pleaded no contest to the remaining count. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison, followed by five years of probation. The probation requirement was later reduced to two years. OLeary appealed, and a unanimous three-judge panel sided with the trial judge.UCF attack plotter a loner ORLANDO A former student who plotted an attack at the University of Central Florida kept to himself and left little impression on his class-mates before his suicide led to the discovery of his weapons and his plans. James Oliver Seevakumaran was described as a loner both by police and in a brief statement from his fam-ily released Tuesday. Authorities planned an afternoon news confer-ence. One of his dorm mates said he recalled friendly but distant interactions with James Oliver Seevakumaran, while several others approached by a reporter said they didnt recall seeing or interacting with him. A roommate interviewed by a campus media outlet said Seevakumaran was an introvert who never had visitors. Police say the 30-yearold Seevakumaran had armed himself early Monday with two guns, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, a backpack filled with explosives. They said he planned to attack other students as they fled the seven-story dorm where he had pulled a fire alarm to cause the evacu-ation. Seevakumarans plans were thrown off by cam-pus police officers quick response to the fire alarm and a 911 call from his roommate, who hid after Seevakumaran pointed a gun at him, UCF Police Chief Richard Beary said.Right to speak bill passes TALLAHASSEE People would get the right to be heard and not just seen at local government and state agency meetings under a bill passed by the Florida Senate. The Senate on Tuesday approved the bill (SB 50) unanimously by a vote of 40-0. A companion mea-sure is under consider-ation in the House. The bill is a response to 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 allows governments to set time limits on public comment and exempts some meetings of an emergency nature. Princess Diana dresses fetch $1.2M LONDON A collection of some of Princess Dianas most memorable evening gowns, including one she wore to a White House dinner where she danced with John Travolta, fetched more than $1.2 million at a London auction Tuesday. Diana famously wore the deep navy, figure-hugging velvet gown to a gala dinner hosted by President Ronald Reagan, during her and Prince Charles first joint state visit to the U.S. in 1985. Photographs of her taking to the White House dance floor with Travolta have become some of the most celebrated images of the princess. The Victor Edelstein gown was sold for 240,000 pounds, Kerry Taylor Auctions said. It came slightly below the expected maximum price of 300,000 pounds. The auction house did not disclose the identity of the buyer, only saying it was sold to a British gentleman as a surprise to cheer up his wife. Nine other of Dianas dresses were sold to bidders, which came from around the world and included three museums, the auction house said. Two dresses by Catherine Walker, one of Dianas favorite designers, went for 108,000 pounds each. They were a black velvet and beaded gown worn for a Vanity Fair photo shoot by Mario Testino at Kensington Palace in 1997, and a burgundy crushed velvet gown the princess wore to the film premiere of Back to the Future in 1985. Diana sold dozens of her dresses at a New York charity auction at the suggestion of her son, Prince William, in 1997 three months before she died in a Paris car crash. Florida-based socialite Maureen Dunkel bought about a dozen of the dresses including the 10 to be sold next month and put them up for auction in Canada in 2011, but the prices were set too high and many dresses didnt sell.Roths 80th cause for Newark, NJ, celebration NEWARK, N.J. Fans of author Philip Roth have joined scholars on a tour of Newark, N.J., on the occasion of his 80th birthday. Three buses wound through Roths birthplace Tuesday, stopping at locations he wrote about in his novels. The buses emptied and attendees snapped pictures outside Weequaic (we-QUAY-ick) High School. The school featured promi-nently in Portnoys Complaint and American Pastoral. The tour also stopped outside the authors childhood home.Associate says Lil Wayne released from hospital NEW YORK Lil Wayne is out of the hospital, according to his Young Money associate Mack Maine.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City man faces an aggravated battery charge after he allegedly struck a 70-year-old man sitting in his vehicle on North Marion Avenue. Gregory Creamer, 42, told police that he pulled onto Duval Street from a parking lot on Monday at about 11:09 a.m. At that time, the driver in the vehicle behind him started honking and flicked his middle finger at Creamer, according to the arrest report. When Creamer reached the intersection of Marion Ave and Duval Street, he exited his vehicle and approached the drivers side win-dow of the car behind him, the report said. The occupant, Charles Barton, asked Creamer to put his head in the win-dow, the police report read. Creamer told police that when he put his head in the window, Barton grabbed his neck and slapped him on the chin. However, Barton said that Creamer approached his vehicle in an aggressive manner and stuck his finger in the vehicle through the open window, the report said. Barton attempted to remove Creamers hands from his car, but was unable to. According to the report, Creamer told police he then beat the 70-year-old man, striking him several times in the face. Barton sustained minor injuries to his lip, which were treated on the scene. Barton told police he wanted to pursue charges, and Creamer was taken to the Columbia County Detention Center without incident.

The $24 million project proposal comes after past flooding issues on the section of I-10. The presentation to the commission will start at 5:30 p.m. in the School Board Administration Auditorium. FDOT offi-ials will be available for an hour before the meeting to answer any questions from citizens. Sections of the four-lane interstate were closed following Tropical Storm Debby. FDOT plans to install 10 drainage struc-tures and raise the roadway by maximum of one foot, four inches. The project will include raising the County Road 236 over-pass, an FDOT news release says. The project area stretches from west of U.S. 41 east to the County Road 250 overpass. FDOT anticipates at least four areas being affected by the construction, including west of U.S. 41 near exit 301, east of U.S. 41, east of U.S. 441 near exit 303 and areas inside the Osceola National Forest between CR 236 and CR 250. Creamer AUDIT: City finances found sound Continued From Page 1ARetirement Plan, which resulted in a net pension obligation. The city addressed the issue and paid an addition-al contribution of $477,529 into the employee pension plan in 2012. Still, the audit found the net pension obliga-tion on Sept. 30, 2012, was $236,238, and recom-mended the city consider additional contributions to eliminate the underfund-ing. City Manager Wendell Johnson wrote that the city has budgeted the $236,238 in the 2013 fis-cal year to eliminate the underfunding. We have tightened the purse strings a little bit these last couple years, and we have weathered some pretty tough economic years, Johnson said. ... If we dont have any more findings than this pension fund finding which is a managerial comment, by the way Im thrilled. RULING: Discrimination suit rejected Continued From Page 1Amisconduct and insubordi-nation by me towards her. When you look the judges ruling, its all one-sided. My side was never considered. Its going to be appealed to the 11th Appeals Court in Atlanta, Ga. Davis said his attorney, Marie Mattox, will file the request for an appeal by Friday. He said he was surprised by the ruling. I was surprised by the ruling, but I can tell you this, the chief knew the ruling three months ago, Davis said. How did she know that? I do believe that in the end its going to come out in my favor. It not over till God says its over. Davis worked at the city police department for 19 years, from June 1990 to November 2009. Gilmore terminated Davis on Nov. 19, 2009. Court documents said Davis claimed Gilmore was hired to fire him in retali-ation for filing racial dis-crimination complaints. While at LCPD, Davis filed several internal griev-ances complaining of racial discrimination, and leveled charges against four differ-ent heads of the department: Chief David Albritton, Chief Steven Burch, Capt. Bruce Charles and Gilmore. One of instances where Davis alleged racial dis-crimination was an email he received from former chief Burch, where Burch forwarded a message to the entire department that contained an attachment with the image of a mon-key, saying We think the one in the middle is you. Burch said he did not open the email or see the image before sending it, which was verified by the citys information technology technician. The court determined that the email was neither an adverse action against Davis nor evidence of dis-criminatory intent. Davis allegations against Burch and Charles gener-ally related to purported favoritism shown to a white officer and the failure to select Davis to serve as act-ing or interim police chief on two occasions, as well as the initiation of two inter-nal affairs investigations of Davis. The court found Davis allegations did not have merit, and they were dis-missed. Davis presents no evidence that he was repri-manded, suspended, threat-ened, criticized, harassed or in any way tangibly harmed, court documents stated. Davis suffered no loss in pay, benefits or pres-tige. Davis said that Gilmore terminated him in retali-ation for his history of fil-ing racial discrimination complaints. Court records indicate she did not termi-nate Davis because of any disciplinary issue. Gilmores depositions said she terminated Davis following a one-on-one meeting on Nov. 3, 2009, after Gilmore had been at the department for less than two months. During the meeting, Gilmore said she felt Davis seemed to have an 8-to-5 mentality and explained to him that she expected him to deal with planning, drafting policies and taking initiative. She said it appeared Davis did not agree with her philosophy and that indicated Davis did not possess the right mentality or skill set to perform the role of captain. Although he presented evidence that he was regarded as a good officer and supervisor, her assessment was that Davis was operating with the mentality of a sergeant, meaning he may have been good at providing supervi-sion, but he was not skilled at planning, drafting poli-cies or taking initiative. Following the oneon-one meeting, Gilmore contacted City Manager Wendell Johnson that same day and told him that she had completed the a one-on-one meeting with Davis, assessed her command structure and concluded that Davis did not fit into her team, court docu-ments say. Howard ruled that Davis was an at-will employee and could be terminated at will. In this case, Gilmore has consistently explained that she terminated Davis because he did not have the right mentality and skill set to serve as her second-in-command, the judges ruling said. Davis has not shown that these reasons are untrue, or that they could not have legiti-mately motivated Gilmore to terminate Davis. Davis said the city was not an at-will workplace when he was terminated, but a just cause work-place. Florida is an at-will state, but in 2009 the City of Lake City had just cause policy, he said. Nov. 15, 2010, they changed it to an at-will policy. She (Gilmore) said she terminated me at will, but how can you ter-minate somebody at-will if you dont have an at-will policy? Just cause meant you had to have poor job performance or some type of misconduct to be recom-mended for termination. This is why they changed their policy in 2010. I dont have any animosity for the chief or the city manager, Davis con-tinued. This is about right and wrong. A lot of people are telling me its over, but its not over. This is like half-time and we still have a second half left. PADDLING: Charges not likely Continued From Page 1Athe state attorneys office do not take the paddling as a serious matter. Until you see for yourself what was done to my son, you wont understand, she said. Siegmeister said Tuesday night that he had seen the photos, and there are visible marks on the childs buttocks. There is established case law as to what constitutes child abuse, and Siegmeister said he doesnt believe the evidence meets that stan-dard. The mother gave her permission for the pad-dling to take place, Siegmeister said, which will make it difficult to convince a jury that a school administrator com-mitted child abuse. Siegmeister has not made a final decision with regard to filing charges, and he could change his mind, he said. The Lake City Reporter is not reporting the moth-ers name in order to pro-tect the identity of the child. BREAK-IN: Burglars steal computer Continued From Page 1A is a childrens com-puter system with early childhood software, Ward said. They broke into one building on the back side the playground side and came in and they took the Hatch computer system and some keys to internal doors. Right now, thats all we know they took. Ward said they are still trying to determine wheth-er anything else was taken. She did not give an esti-mated total value for items taken or broken. The building that was burglarized is for Early Head Start programs, where new-borns to 3-year-old children are served. The facility serves 72 children. We mainly serve lowincome and our most impoverished families in the community. So, it really hurts whenever something like this happens, she said. Unfortunately, its not the first time that weve been broken into over there. After reviewing the security video, Ward said there appeared to be about four people involved. It looked to be young kids, she said. The break-in will have an adverse impact on services provided at the facility for 16 children 2 to 3 years old. The children wont have access to that part of the classroom, Ward said. They wont be able to utilize the early learn-ing programs software on that system. Its an extra resource for the children in the classroom that helps to emphasize other areas of learning. It helped them emphasize learning their letters, numbers and col-ors. A window in one of the facilitys other buildings was also smashed. The glass from where they smashed the window in it was like the win-dow exploded all over the classroom. So, all of the toys, equipment and furni-ture everything in that classroom just had glass splattered everywhere, Ward said. She said she is uncertain whether the agency will have a fundraiser to replace the stolen computer. We havent gotten that far yet to really think about that, she said. Well have to see what we can do. Drivers fight; one chargedInterstate project to be aired A lot of people are telling me its over, but its not over. This is like half-time and we still have a second half left. Rudolph Davis Sr., former Lake City police captain By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comDespite a slump in the February housing market statistics, local realtors con-tinue to believe the market has entered stable territory. The countys monthly housing market report shows a decrease in closed sales, median sale price and average sale price compared to February 2012. Similarly, the Lake City Board of Realtors reports that the average percent of original price received for a sale has fallen, as compared to the same period a year ago. However, the active inventory has dropped, a positive indicator for the economy. Dan Gherna, executive director of the Board of Realtors, said the numbers shouldnt scare people. Were in a stable market, he said. Were probably back to where we were in 2001 and 2002, before we started the great ascension. Stan Batten, Board of Realtors president, agrees. He said the market seems to be improving. Battens observation is reflected in the month-by-month breakdown of the mar-kets numbers. While closed sales may be down to18 from Januarys 30, pending sales rose from 32 to 36. According to the report, economists consider pending sales to be a reliable indicator of potential closed sales, but warn that not all pending sales will be finalized. New listings dropped from 82 in January to 55 in February. However, new listings fluctuate over the course of the year, with December 2012 having had just 30 new listings. Median sales price was $142,500 in February 2012, compared to $117,000 last month, while the average was $106,250 in January. Batten said foreclosures, bank repossessions and short sales could have contributed to the drop in median and average price. Gherna said the disparity was created because of the sale of six houses at more than $200,000 each in 2012. So far this year, realtors in Columbia County have only sold three houses more than $200,000 each. When youre looking at a small sample size, a couple big sales can really skew the market, Gherna said. A falling inventory shows increased interest by buyers and is a good indicator of an improving market, Batten said. The property for sale inventory decreased from 433 homes in February 2012 to 367 homes in February 2013. The inventory was up slightly from Januarys 365 homes. A balanced market for real estate is 5.5 months of supply, indicating the market is neither a buyers market nor a sellers market, the report indicates.

T he last time I saw Cartha D. DeLoach was all the way back in the early 1970s, when the nations attention was focused on the Watergate scandal. While he wasnt one of the figures in the constitutional crisis boiling around the Nixon administration, he certainly had been a key in a series of events that historically set that stage. Deke, as he was known, died last week at age 92. When Id seen him four decades ago, he had left his high perch in law enforcement as J. Edgar Hoovers third in com-mand of the FBI and was then a private citizen in corporate America. We met in his office at PepisCo, the giant beverage conglomerate, where he was assistant to the presi-dent, to discuss a sensitive subject: the politicization of the FBI and its use, or misuse, by presidents. I had called DeLoach early that morning to ask for an appointment on behalf of an unlikely trio of reporters from unrelated organiza-tions: myself, Jim Squires of the Chicago Tribune and Harry Kelly of Hearst. We were pooling our efforts to recreate a series of memos from another FBI superstar, the professo-rial William Sullivan, who for years guided the bureaus counterintel-ligence efforts. Those memos had come into possession of the Senate Watergate Committee but had been withheld from the public by chief counsel Samuel Dash. To try to duplicate them without seeing them, the three of us had split up our personal FBI sources and indi-vidually begun interviewing them. We ultimately would interview only two together, DeLoach and Sullivan. During our interview, DeLoach seemed relaxed and confident -to a point. Having spent much of his life fending off bad publicity, he first wisely wanted to find out what we already knew. In the end, he filled some important holes, confirmed what we had learned in individual interviews, talked about his fam-ily, and sent us off with an offer to supply us with a case of Russian vodka his company was licensed to distribute. We declined for obvious reasons. After we reporters spent a day with Sullivan, our organizations simultaneously broke stories that outlined a series of misuses of FBI personnel and support by presidents dating from Franklin Roosevelt, including using agents on the floor posing as delegates at the Democratic National Convention in 1964, illegal break-ins at foreign embassies, so-called black bag jobs and questionable wiretaps for political reasons. Yet my memories of DeLoach are pleasant. He was perhaps the last of the Hoover lieutenants who helped him put together an agency often flawed, rightly criticized but highly important in law enforcement and preserving liberty. His contribution to that historic perspective, good and bad, was significant. The nation was lucky to have him. Had he been in a position, would he have leaked the information that brought an end to the Nixon crisis -as did W. Mark Felt, identified as Deep Throat, and others in the bureau? I would like to think so.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman T he devil is always in the details. Two weeks after the Florida Senate earned accolades for its unanimous vote on ethics reform, the bills fine print is getting the scrutiny it deserves thanks to a former ethics commission execu-tive director. Now its up to the Florida House to improve the ethics reform package by tightening up several Senate provisions that could make it harder instead of easier for the public to keep tabs on those conducting the business of govern-ment. Meaningful ethics reform requires getting all the details right, not just some of them. The House Ethics and Elections Committee started deliberations Monday on the House leg-islation just a day after Philip Claypool, the former executive director of the state ethics com-mission, critiqued the Senate legislation at the request of Integrity Florida. Among the areas ripe for improvement in the House: Financial disclosure requirementsLawmakers want to make it easier for officials to correct the paperwork they must file annually without consequence. But the danger is in under-mining the importance of financial disclosure for the convenience of politicians, particularly when this provision could mean a corrected form isnt submitted until after an election. The citizens right to know the financial interests of those seeking or holding office is not a nuisance requirement, and the ethics commission already distinguishes between honest mistakes and more nefarious kinds. Conflicts of InterestLegislators can now vote on any matter, but they have to disclose afterward if they or a close associate, including a family member, would get a special private gain or loss. Under the Senate and House bills, lawmakers could not vote on issues where they had a special interest but could vote if their close associate did. In those cases, the legislator would still disclose a conflict after voting. And the Senate bill contains suspect language that appears to narrow the definition of special gain or loss. The goal should be to improve public disclosure, not give lawmakers more cover when they vote for their self-interest, big and small. Ethics complaintsBoth chambers would make it harder for citizens to file complaints in the run-up to an elec-tion. And the Senate would impose new standards when a complaint must be dismissed by the com-mission. This would make matters worse, and Florida doesnt have a problem with over-prosecu-tion on ethics violations....

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org 4AOPINIONC ongressman Tom McClintock, R-Calif., has a modest proposal for the House GOP leader-ship: Keep Democrats constantly astride the horns of a dilemma. We have seen several major pieces of legislation reported to the House floor, such as the Violence Against Women Act, that divide Republicans while they unite Democrats, McClintock tells me. Just thinking out loud here, maybe while we still have a Republican majority in the House, we ought to put up measures that unite Republicans around Republican principles and force the Democrats to explain their positions to voters. House Speaker John Boehner, ROhio, repeatedly has violated former GOP Speaker J. Dennis Hasterts rule that legislation must pass the House with at least a majority of the Republican majority. The tax-raising fiscal-cliff deal, pork-filled Hurricane Sandy relief bill, and the problem-atic VAWA all were adopted with nearly unanimous Democrat sup-port and a minority of GOP votes. This is no way to run a Republican legislative chamber, especially when the Washington Post reports that Obama thirsts to crush the Houses GOP majority and, during his final two years, reinstate California Democrat Nancy Pelosi as speaker for one last, left-wing waltz. Boehner should follow McClintocks strategy and schedule daily, stand-alone votes that rally Republicans and let Democrats dem-onstrate whether they truly stand with the downtrodden or with the prosperous. As the sequester started, for instance, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, offered a brilliant idea: No federal funding for Obamas 116th golf junket until he restores public tours of the White House. Despite applause for Gohmerts amendment, Boehner scotched it. What a waste. So, the question should come before the House. In a separate, individual vote -rather than within a major bill that Democrats might oppose on a party-line basis -the donkeys should decide: Would they rather spend tax dollars to whisk Obama to country clubs or to reopen the executive mansion to Boy Scouts, Campfire Girls and other children who washed cars and sold cookies to fund their now-spiked White House visits? As the Heritage Foundations James Sherk estimates, taxpayers could save some $11 billion annually by repealing the Davis-Bacon Act. It requires Washington to pay, on aver-age, 22 percent higher, union-driven prevailing wages on federally fund-ed construction projects rather than lower, market-driven wages. Why not scrap this lavish law and devote half the savings to debt reduction and the other half to assist disabled children who live below the poverty line? Force Democrats to choose between construction-union bosses, who pay their campaign bills, and disadvantaged kids, whom they say they represent. As the Cato Institutes Chris Edwards calculates, federal civilian employees enjoyed $128,226 in combined wages and benefits in 2011, versus $64,560 for the typical private-sector taxpayers who under-write their paychecks. To practice the shared sacrifice that Obama preaches, cut their compensation by 10 percent. This $12,822 average savings per government employee would finance medical assistance for wounded warriors from Iraq and Afghanistan. Force Democrats to choose between overpaid federal bureaucrats and the military heroes whom they claim to support. The Office of Personnel Management specifies that in 2011, federal employees spent 3,395,187 hours caring for 1,202,733 union-ized federal workers when the employee would otherwise be in a duty status. In other words, during this official time, federal staffers worked for Big Labor, rather than the American people. This cost tax-payers $155,573,739 -11.85 percent above 2010s expense. The House should kill official time and split the savings: half to the Treasury, to reduce the $16.7 trillion national debt, and half to the Centers for Disease Control, to discover new HIV-AIDS treatments and create an AIDS vaccine. Make Democrats pick between their pals in the govern-ment-employee unions and the AIDS patients they say they love. House Republicans thus should give Democrats daily opportunities either to do the right thing...or paint themselves into a corner where their hunger for self-preservation will expose the hollowness of their slogans.

Brandon Michael Allen has been working on military opera-tions for close to a decade, but early this month the Columbia County native took part in a secret opera-tion to surprise his family. After returning home from a deployment in Kuwait, Allen surprised his 7-year-old son, Brandon Jamal, with a visit to Suwannee Primary School in Suwannee County on March 1. The operation proved to be successful as the young-er Allen was all smiles and greeted his father with a huge hug. I went to his elementary school and surprised him, Allen said. He was very excited and surprised to see me and his young-er brother. He was glad I made it home and he said he really missed me. He said he wanted to spend some time with me, and I told him thats what were going to do. Allen said he didnt tell anyone he would be visit-ing the younger Allen in school. Allen has been deployed three times while serving in the Army and recently returned home. I was deployed to Kuwait and was deployed for seven months, he said, noting while he was over there he served as company fire support noncommissioned officer. Allen has been in the military for nine years, and in his two previous deployments, he served in Afghanistan. It feels great to be home, he said. I get to see the family and kids again. I get to go hunting and fishing. I get to relax, get fresh air and see some familiar faces. Allen said his unit hasnt been formally scheduled to return to their base at Fort Benning in Columbus, Ga. Allen, 28, is the son of Willie B. Allen and Oni Allen of Lake City. He is a Columbia High School Class of 2003 graduate.

Tuesday night was no exception as Williston High beat host Fort White High, 2-1, as the Red Devils took over first place in the dis-trict. Fort Whites Robby Howell threw a fine four-hitter with 13 strikeouts, but the Indians only backed him up with one run. Williston freshman Austin Langworthy was equally impressive, also going the distance and striking out nine. Both offensives needed help scoring against the power pitching. Fort Whites run came in the fourth inning after Williston had taken a 2-0 lead. Willie Carter led off with a single and was forced at second by Kevin Dupree. Anthony Gonzalez ran for Dupree and moved to second on a single by Howell. Kody Moniz hit a ground ball to the second base-man for a force out, and Gonzalez scored when the shortstops throw to first was wild. The Indians only had two other base runners a one-out single by Moniz in the second inning and a two-out walk to Dupree in the sixth. Williston (10-3, 5-1) got on the board with two outs in the first inning. Langworthy singled and Justin Forsythe had a ground ball single on a perfectly executed hit-and-run. Langworthy scored on a passed ball. Trent Johnson singled and stole second in the second inning, but Howell struck out the side to strand him. In the fourth inning, Forsythe led off with the first of his two walks. He stole second and went to third when the throw scoot-ed into center field. Dylan Blalock bounced a single up the middle on the drawn-in infield to score the run. Howell retired 11 of the final 12 batters. The Indians have dropped three straight, scoring five runs in the process. We have not been swinging the bats real well, Fort White head coach Mike Rizzi said. That is why we are struggling. We are not putting hits together and leaving guys on base. Still, I like the way the guys are battling. All we need is to keep doing that. Fort White (9-4, 5-2) hosts Interlachen High at 7 p.m. Friday and bring in Columbia High at 3 p.m. Saturday. Williston High knocks off Fort White, 2-1.

Wave crashes down on Columbia softball By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE Columbia High hit the road on Tuesday to take on the states top-ranked P.K. Yonge and the Lady Tigers found out why the Blue Wave have their ranking the hard way. P.K. Yonge (16-2) held the Lady Tigers scoreless for the first time this season as the Blue Wave handed Columbia a 6-0 loss. Theyve just got a stud on the mound, Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams said. Weve played her about 10 times now and she just keeps get-ting better. Good pitching will beat good hitting any day. The Lady Tigers were playing without one of their best hitters as Kayli Kvistad missed the game with a leg injury. Shes expected to return to the lineup later this week. Lacey King and Brandy Morgan each had hits in the first inning and Brittany Morgan had a hit in the second inning, but the Lady Tigers were shut down after that. Kalen McGill pitched seven innings for the Blue Wave, gave up three hits, struck out four and walked two batters. Ashley Shoup pitched six innings for the Lady Tigers. She gave up eight hits, struck out four batters, walked three and had four earned runs. For Williams, the important thing is his team bounc-es back. We always bounce back after a loss, he said. Were glad to have the next two games at home. The crowd is always good for us. We should see some super soft-ball. Columbia (13-3) hosts St. Augustine High at 7 p.m. on Thursday.

The Wildcats decided not to call timeout after the second free throw but Kyle Wiltjers 3-pointer before the buzzer bounced harmlessly off the rim, sending hundreds of stu-dents onto the court as Robert Morris ruined Kentucky coach John Caliparis homecoming. Lucky Jones led the Colonials (24-10) with 15 points but was ejected for a flagrant foul on Archie Goodwin with 3:41 to play.

The former Florida State quarterback threw a vari-ety of passes with near per-fect precision in front of dozens of NFL scouts and coaches on his 23rd birthday Tuesday as he contin-ued his bid to improve his stock for next months NFL draft. Using handful of former Seminole teammates as receivers, Manuel worked close to an hour, showcas-ing his ability to throw on the run as well as drop back and throw long. Manuel also was quick to inform reporters after the workout that his mother is on the way to a full recovery from breast cancer. Manuel says he was off to celebrate his perfor-mance and birthday with his family before getting back to his training. Purifoys move not just an experiment for FloridaBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Loucheiz Purifoys move to offense is not just a spring experiment. Florida coach Will Muschamp said Tuesday that the 6-foot-1 junior cornerback will have an expanded role as a receiver this fall, making him the programs first two-way player since Keiwan Ratliff in 2002. Ratliff, primarily a cornerback, caught just four passes for 58 yards and a touchdown that year. Given the Gators lack of talent and depth at receiver, Purifoy could have a much more significant impact in 2013. Muschamp says Purifoy needs to be in really, really good shape. And Muschamp wasnt kidding. In addition to cornerback and receiver, Purifoy will be a key player on special teams. Owners pass two rules changesAssociated PressPHOENIX NFL owners have passed two rule changes to enhance player safety. The owners outlawed peel-back blocks any-where on the field; pre-viously, they were illegal only inside the tackle box. A player makes a peel-back block when he is mov-ing toward his goal line, approaches an opponent from behind or the side, and makes contact below the waist. Also banned is overloading a formation while attempting to block a field goal or extra point. Defensive teams can now have only six or less players on each side of the snapper at the line of scrimmage. Players not on the line cant push teammates on the line into blockers, either.
The annual LGA Ryder Cup contest was decided on the final hole of the days only singles match. Nicole Ste-Marie came from 2 down with three holes to play for a 1 up win and a one-point victory for the Bomb Diggities over the Red Hot Mommas. Individual team match scores: Natalie Bryant/Judy McGrath (BD) defeated Cathy Steen/Suzi Davis (RMH); Carol Felton/Shirley Edelstein (BD) tied Jan Davis/Roberta Whitaker (RMH); Nancy Edgar/Sally Rivers (BD) def. Cile Dockery/Rocky Roth (RMH); Mandy Grimmett/Ann Bormolini (RHM) tied Faye Warren/Gloria Rowley (BD); Nicole Ste-Marie (BD) def. Anita West (RHM). Five birdies by Robbie Kerby (+12) gave him a five-point win in Sundays blitz. Jerry West (+7) finished in second, a point ahead of Dave Mehl and five ahead of John Raulerson. Two of Kerbys birdies held up for skins. Timmie Rogers, Mickey Willcox, Shelton Keen, Mike Gough, Buddy Slay and West had one each. Closest to the pin winners were Bob Wheary on No. 5, Bob Randall on No. 7, Terry Hunter on No. 15 and Mehl on No. 17. Jerry West picked up the win in A flight of Wednesdays low-scoring blitz. His +3 topped Steve Patterson by one. Jordan Hale and Don Howard split third with +1. Keith Shaw (+8) had an easier go in B flight, where he took a four-point win over Jerry Smith and Pete Skantos. Cory Bannister finished fourth. Dennis Crawford took home two skins as consola-tion prizes. Terry Hunter, Shelton Keen, David Blair, Hale and Howard had a skin apiece. Jonathan Allen won a nice pot hole payoff, but the big one remains in play. Bruce Ford took the A flight win of Saturdays blitz by four over Scott Kishton and Bob Randall. Michael Yacovelli (+5) had a tougher time in the B flight before he notched a one-point win over David Rhodes and Eli Witt. Steve Peters and Terry Hunter shared the skins pot with Kishton, Randall and Rhodes. All three of the Good Old Boys matches were competitive. Marc Risk, Paul Davis, Tony Branch and Carl Wilson teamed to take the first contest, 7-5, over the foursome of Jerry West, Rhea Hart, Jim Bell and Emerson Darst. In the days closest match, the team of Ed Snow, Stan Woolbert, Joe Persons and Howard Whitaker squeezed by the team of Monty Montgomery, Dennis Hendershot, Jim McGriff and Bill Rogers, 6-5. In the finale, the team of Don Howard, Dave Cannon, Larry Ward and Bill Wheeler finished on top by two points over the team of Don Christensen, Mike Spencer, Eli Witt and Dan Stephens. Risk (37-40-77) took medalist honors by a stroke over Montgomery (39-39-78) and West (41-37-78). Snow was another stroke back with 79. The MGA battle tees off at 8 a.m. Saturday.

Saturdays Par 3 Tournament gave golfers a new look at every hole. Most every approach to the greens, which were set at a par 3 distance, was at totally different angles than the holes were designed to accept golf shots. Each shot required a precise dis-tance to hold the greens and get close to the pin, which made the scoring a real challenge. To add to the total score, a closest to the pin con-test was in play on every hole with 12 players placing their flag in the green and having a shot in the draw-ing for a prize. Stroke play winners were: 1st flight-Todd Carter 53, Jason Watts 56; 2nd flight-Mike Kahlich 59, Bill Ryan 66; 3rd flight-Gerald Smithy 74, Randy Heavrin 75. Wednesday Blitz results: First-Frog Niewisch +3; Second (tie)-Ralph Minster and Jack Tuggle +2. Closest to the pin winners: Niewisch, Nos. 3 and 15; Minster, No. 5; Randy Heavrin, No. 11; Mike Kahlich, No. 17. Skin winners were Codey Blackwell, Chet Carter (2), Niewisch (2), Heavrin and Minster. Friday Dogfight results had Joe Herring first with +8, outdistancing Larry Boone and Tim Tortorices who tied for second at +4. Closest to pin holes were dominated by Jason Self with winners on Nos. 3, 15 and 17. This left No. 11 for Dave Zeman and No. 5 for Cody Hudson. Skin winners were Tony Kent, Ralph Minster, Jason Self, Hudson and Chet Carter (2). The Wednesday Scramble was won by the team of Chet Carter, Dave Zeman and Richard Simmons with a score of 4 under. The big money pot dodged a major bullet as six out of nine holes were in play, but the hole pulled was the only one not birdied so the pot rolls over. The Tuesday Night Twilight League kicked off with 18 teams playing their first matches with the results as follows: Q Flight 1 Gordon Fuller and grandson Braden Lehman defeated Pete Sapienza and Ralph Minster; Codey Blackwell and dad Tim def. Luther Huffman and Jason Watts; Wallace Christie and Ben Chancey halved their match with Mark and Erica Lloyd. Q Flight 2 Richard and Shelly Skipper def.

Now his name adorns a PGA Tour event that has been a staple of the Florida Swing for 35 years. Its also carried by two hospitals that special-ize in children one named after his late wife, Winnie, and where more than 93,000 babies have been born since 2006. Oh, and hes having dinner with Kate Upton this week. Did you see this? Palmer said, holding up the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue with Upton on the cover. Shes com-ing here. Did you know that? He put it back on his desk, gave it one last look, and then grabbed a stack of papers to place over the magazine. I better cover this up, he said. Brad Faxon surely had Palmer in mind when he said years after a golf trip, I wish we had more guys on tour who liked meeting people. Palmer is one of those guys. Always has been. And thats why so many people want to meet the King. Talk about a tradition like no other. For years, Palmer has written a note of congratulations to the winners on every tour every week.
DEAR ABBY: Is there such a thing as non-physi-cal sexual abuse? When I was young, my father would fondle my mother when I came to sleep with them when I had a night-mare. (She would rebuff his advances.) He would also watch porn in front of me. As I matured, he made comments about my fig-ure. He would barge into my room without knocking and insist he didnt have to knock. Hed tell dirty jokes or talk about sexually inappropriate things. But with all of this, he never touched me or assaulted me. His actions affected my self-esteem and relation-ships because as I grew up I thought the only thing I had to offer was being sexy. Thankfully, therapy and my husband helped me to see myself as a fully dynamic person. I recently began seeing a new counselor who thinks my father was just a dirty old man -noth-ing more. Was I abused? -WONDERING IN WISCONSIN DEAR WONDERING: When a parent attempts to initiate sex or watch pornography in front of a child, it is sexualizing behavior and it could also be considered grooming behavior. Your fathers actions were so far out of the normal boundaries that they were off the charts. And yes, it WAS a form of abuse. My advice is to change counselors. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My daughter is mentally ill, homeless and on meth. A year ago, when she wasnt so bad, she asked if I would take her 3-year-old daughter, Lucy, so she could get herself together. Unfortunately, she went the other direction. It was fine when I thought that the arrange-ment was temporary, but when I realized I would be raising Lucy as a single par-ent at 49, things got hard. My so-called friends have abandoned me, and so has my much younger boyfriend. But what is actually killing this is that I get no respite. When I dont have my recharge time, I tune Lucy out, and the next thing I know she has cut up the curtains or hidden my shoes. Im afraid Im just going to lose it. Work doesnt count; there are people there, too. Bad thoughts are going through my head because I feel such resentment. I know if I had time for my own mental health, I could be a good surrogate mother to Lucy, but if I cant, Im starting to think I may have to give her up, and that breaks my heart. I want to scream, to throw things, to just leave the house and walk until I drop. Please help me. -END OF MY ROPE DEAR END: How much time do you need to recharge? Would it be an hour or hour and a half at the end of each workday? Would an afternoon dur-ing the weekends suffice? Have you discussed this with Lucys grandfather or her paternal grandparents? They might be willing to get involved and lighten your load. Would a neigh-bor watch your grandchild on a regular basis if you compensated her or him? How about the person who already takes care of Lucy while youre at work? Please explore these options if you havent already. Screaming, throw-ing things and leaving the little girl alone are not viable scenarios. However, if you feel that you might harm her, it would be bet-ter if you placed her for adoption or in foster care. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Trouble surrounds you. Keep your thoughts to yourself and avoid dis-cussing personal matters. A feud can make or break an important relationship. Work quietly on your own and you will make the most of your time. Steady progress will eventually pay off. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Emotions will lead to impulsiveness. Stay calm and put energy into help-ing a cause or exploring an idea you want to pursue. Look to partnerships for greater stability as well as equal contributions. Romance is apparent, but so are secret affairs. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Past colleagues and peers are likely to be charming but not trustwor-thy. Dont rely on second-hand information. Do your research and avoid making a mistake youll regret. Avoid being predictable and you will avoid being taken for granted. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Visit people and places. Sharing thoughts, ideas and memories will ignite new beginnings that allow you to reuse past plans. Greater security will develop if you let your imaginative thoughts and ideas lead the way. Love is in the stars. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Embrace change even if you arent completely in favor of whats happening. A chance to get an inside look at exciting new possi-bilities will clear your mind and eliminate mistakes. Be willing to take on addition-al responsibilities. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dont ruin your chance of success by going overboard. Temper your desire to make changes at home or work. Time is on your side, and someone you least expect will offer you a favor. Rely on intu-ition and old friends and colleagues. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Push back if someone tries your patience. You may like to keep the peace, but being taken advantage of will not help your confi-dence. Explore new possi-bilities, but make sure they are reasonable before you proceed. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Rethink your strategy, look at your surroundings and find a way to make what you have work for you. An addition, new con-nection or a simple plan that allows you to engage in creative entertainment or functions should be your goal. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Think before you say something youll regret. The truth will help you avoid criticism. An old partner or friend will come through for you in a time of need, but first you must be completely honest about your situation. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Dont feel pres-sured to make a move or a statement. Follow your heart and head in a direc-tion that best suits you. Profits and advancement are heading your way. Added responsibilities will also raise your profile. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Get back to basics and to the things you enjoy doing most. Changing the way you earn your living will bring you satisfaction and more confidence. Altering your current accommodations will encourage growth and prosperity. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep your life simple. Avoid exaggeration or tak-ing on too much. Put your creative ideas to work for you. Exploring a new inter-est or investing in a talent or skill you want to exploit will give you a new outlook on life. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
