By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comR uby slippers dangled from the stockinged feet of the Wicked Witch, crushed under the weight of Dorothys home. In a cloud of bubbles, Glinda the Good Witch appeared on stage, gently coerc-ing the Munchkins from behind lower bushes and Munchkin-sized homes. Ding dong, the Wicked Witch is dead, the chorus of children sang, preparing on Tuesday for the upcoming per-formance of The Wizard of Oz by the Masterpiece Theatre of the Arts. Guests can attend the show on Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. at Florida Gateway Colleges Levy Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students under 12 years old. Advance tickets can be picked up at 1st Street Music and Pride and Joy Daycare. Its a classic. Something that I think most people have fond memories of, said Tara Hollingsworth, director and producer of the show. To me, I always wanted to be Dorothy... Its one of those things you remember seeing when youre very young; and then when it came out again, it brought back all those memories of wanting to go to that magical place. The show features a cast of 43 children from Columbia County schools, and the four main cast members Taylor Thompson as Dorothy, Emily Williams as the Scarecrow, Callie Garrett as the Tinman and Devin Huchingson as the Cowardly Lion are best friends onstage and off. I know if I were to fall literally and metaphorically they will be there to pick me up, Huchingson said. If I for-get a line, they will know exactly whats going through my head. I cant ask for anything better to have when Im going through a musical. The 22 members of the master cast have rehearsed for three days a week, two hours a day, over the past 12 weeks to orga-nize the performance. But the two-hour and 30-minute produc-tion involves numerous volun-teers, including Harlene Mimi Brown designing costumes, Lanette Strosser co-directing, and Adam Strosser building the set. Lanette Strosser, Thompsons mother, still calls the movie her favorite of all time. Her bedroom is decorated with Wizard of Oz memorabilia, and she even has a pair of ruby slippers. If I couldnt be Dorothy, I love being able to watch her, Lanette Strosser said. Im very proud. The cast and crew hope to see a large turnout for the week-ends shows. The last produc-tion, Into the Woods, wasnt as well known, and suffered at the box office. I almost think of the crowd as a mirror of us, and us as a mirror to them, Huchingson said. They give us energy. By STEPHEN OHLEMACHERAssociated PressWASHINGTON Traditional retailers and cash-strapped states face a tough sell in the House as they lobby Congress to limit tax-free shopping on the Internet. The Senate voted 69 to 27 Monday to pass a bill that empow-ers states to collect sales tax-es from Internet purchas-es. Under the bill, states could require out-of-state retailers to collect sales tax-es when they sell products over the Internet, in cata-logs, and through radio and TV ads. The sales taxes would be sent to the states where a shopper lives. Current law says states can only require retailers to collect sales taxes if the merchant has a physical presence in the state. That means big retailers with stores all over the country, like Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Target, col-lect sales taxes when they sell goods over the Internet. But online retailers like eBay and Amazon dont have to collect sales taxes, except in states where they have offices or distribution centers. This bill is about fairness, said Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., its main sponsor in the Senate. Its about leveling the playing field between the brick-and-mor-tar and online companies and its about collecting a tax thats already due. Its not about raising taxes. Rep. Ted Yoho, RGainesville, said the prob-lem was broader than that.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comFlorida Crown Workforce Board and Dollar General stores have formed a partnership designed to help veterans get jobs through statewide job fairs. The Paychecks for Patriots 2013 Veterans Hiring Fair will take place 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at American Legion Post 57, 2602 SW Main Blvd. Denise Wynne, Florida Crown Workforce Board employer services representative, said the event is designed for both employers and job-seeking vet-erans. We encourage our veteran job seekers, qualifying spous-es, active duty military, guard and reserve members to come into their local One-Stop Career Center (Florida Crown Workforce Board Office) and make sure they are registered with Employ Florida and that they have a current resume, she said. The event is designed to provide our veterans, who have given so much to their country, an opportunity to secure jobs and network with employers. Employers continue to sign up for the event and Wynne said at least 13 employers and resourc-es have registered so far. When we do a veterans event we try to make sure we have employers and veterans resourc-es available, she said. Veterans resources include Florida Dept. of Veterans Affairs representatives, educational partners and Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve repre-sentatives.

Home signs warn of sex predators STARKE Brian Speer thought he had completed all of his obligations when he registered in Bradford County as a convicted sex predator after serving an eight-year prison sentence for child molestation. But now, in addition to submitting to a public reg-istry for sex offenders, he has a permanent reminder of his crime posted right in his front yard: a bright red sign reading, Brian Speer is a convicted Sexual Predator and lives at this location. The sign is one of 18 the Bradford County Sheriffs Office erected in mid-April outside the homes of con-victed sex predators. The signs have been praised by many residents in the small rural county southwest of Jacksonville, but some question whether the new measure reaches too far and could be harassment against people who have served jail terms and already sub-mit to the public registry. Neighboring Baker County started a similar program six years ago, and another neighbor, Putnam County, is considering one. I think its a lot of bull, said Speer, who was con-victed of lewd or lascivious molestation in 2004. I believe that anybody that has any criminal back-ground should have a sign in front of their house if we have one in front of ours. Bradford officials say they are working within the discretion afforded by state statutes, which mandate that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement use the Internet to notify the public of all sexual predators and requires that a sheriff or police chief conduct com-munity notification of a sexual predators presence. Hurricane center focusing on water FORT LAUDERDAL Last years hurricane season drove home some big lessons, the nations chief hurricane forecaster said Tuesday: Storm surge and flooding are dangerous and difficult to predict, and sometimes its even harder to communicate that sense of urgency to the public. It wasnt just high winds that posed a threat and caused damage, said National Hurricane Center Director Rick Knabb, who joined Floridas emer-gency managers in Fort Lauderdale at the annual Governors Hurricane Conference. 2012 was all about water, water, water. Debby, Isaac, Sandy, Knabb said. It was storm surge from the ocean, it was inland flooding, it was river flood-ing. The center has been working to improve its storm surge forecasts and public warnings about potential flooding risks far from the coastline. The last season has added a sense of urgency to get those upgrades ready by the 2015 season, Knabb said.Coke plans more orange groves AUBURNDALE The Coca-Cola Co. said Tuesday that it is spending $2 billion to support the planting of 25,000 acres of new orange groves in Florida, a move officials are lauding as a major investment in the Sunshine States citrus industry. The announcement was made at a news conference at Coca-Colas juice produc-tion plant in Auburndale. Coca-Cola will buy fruit from two growers: Peace River Citrus Products in Vero Beach and Cutrale Citrus, one of Brazils top growers and juice proces-sors. Cutrale Citrus entrance to Florida as a grower is significant, said state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. The fact that one of the dominant Brazilian players will now have an ownership stake in actual production in Florida is a tremendous development, he said. DUBAI, United Arab Emirates J ustin Bieber is used to fans snapping his photo. Dubai police say he also triggered some speed cameras while driving a white Lamborghini during his stop in the Persian Gulf city. Dubai newspapers on Tuesday quoted a police official saying the megastar racked up a number of speeding fines before being pulled over. The official was not named and no other details were given. The media office for the Dubai police referred to the newspaper reports when asked for comment. Biebers representatives didnt immediately return calls seeking comment. It wasnt the only mishap for Bieber in Dubai. He was jostled on stage Sunday as security guards tackled a fan who climbed out of the crowd during his second and final Dubai performance. In a bit of showmanship of its own, the police in Dubai recently added a Lamborghini and other fast, flashy cars to its fleet.Rapper Ja Rule leaves NY federal prison ALBANY, N.Y. Federal authorities say platinum-selling rapper Ja Rule has left federal prison. The Federal Bureau of Prisons says he left a correc-tional facility in New Yorks Adirondacks on Tuesday, though time remains on his sentence. The bureau says the release date for the 36-year-old rapper, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, technically remains July 28, with possible community-based supervision for the balance. TMZ reports his wife picked him up and that hell remain in home confinement until then. Ja Rule had served most of a twoyear sentence for illegal gun pos-session in a New York state prison before his release in February and subsequent transfer into federal cus-tody in the tax evasion case. He admitted failing to pay taxes on more than $3 million earned between 2004 and 2006.Lauryn Hill tax evasion sentencing delayed NEWARK, N.J. A federal judge postponed Lauryn Hills tax evasion sentencing on Monday but not before scolding the eight-time Grammy-win-ning singer for reneging on a promise to make restitution by now. Hill pleaded guilty last year to not paying federal taxes on $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007. At that time, her attorney said she would pay restitution by the time of her sentencing. It was revealed Monday in court that Hill has paid $50,000 of a total of $554,000. U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo criticized her for relying on the promise of a recording con-tract to pay the tax bill. This is not someone who stands before the court penniless, Arleo said to Hills attorney, Nathan Hochman. This is a criminal matter. Actions speak louder than words, and there has been no effort here to pay these taxes. The reclusive singer didnt speak during the proceeding and left the court without commenting.

event. Dollar General is the primary host for the Paychecks for Patriots program. This is an event that is going to be held at several locations across the state on the same day, Wynne said. Its kind of neat. It was previously done in Tennessee with some suc-cess. She said there are benefits for both employers and veterans to hiring fairs such as this event. First of all this is just kind of showing veterans our appreciation for the sacrifices they and their families endured, Wynne said. Veterans have that discipline from being in (military) service. They know how to follow orders because theyve been in that regimented lifestyle. A lot of our employers like that and tend to be very veteran-oriented and very veteran friendly. They find veterans have a great work ethic. We like to do veteran job fairs as a way to show appreciation for their ser-vices. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Lake City Police Department is participat-ing in the 2013 National Police Week observance with a week of activities commemorating and hon-oring past and present heroes. National Police Week will be observed from May 12 18 and the theme for this years observation is: We are Family. Officer Steve Shaw, Lake City Police Department Public information officer, said LCPD has observed the National Police Week celebration in some form or fashion for several years. Its important to hold a local observation because National Police Week rec-ognizes police officers who have given all in the line of duty, Shaw said. Though the history of the Lake City Police Department three officers have lost their lives while protecting the citizens of Lake City. We just want to remember those officers, and not only those in our department, but those in other agen-cies such as the sheriffs office and other agencies throughout the nation who have lost officers in the line of duty. The LCPD will begin its observation on Monday with America the Beautiful Day where office staff can wear red, white or blue. Sonnys BBQ will provide dinner for officers at 4 p.m. Tuesday will be Police in Pink Day where office staff can wear pink and where officers will wear pink ribbons for cancer awareness. Lil Ceasars will provide lunch at the department at 11 a.m. Wednesday is Peace Officers Memorial Day in honor of peace officers who lost their lives or were disabled in the line of duty. All Florida police agencies and municipali-ties are slated to observe Peace Officers Memorial Day and locally, Lake City Mayor Stephen Witt is slated to read a proclamation dur-ing a 10 a.m. ceremony at the Lake City Public Safety Building. Olive Garden restaurant will provide din-ner at 4 p.m. Thursday is True Blue and/Gold Day where staff can wear blue or gold. Friday will be Favorite Sports Team Shirt Day and lunch will be provided at 11 a.m. Saturday will be the departments Family Fun night and will be celebrat-ed with a Hawaiian Luau. Officers are going to dress in different themes throughout the week, Shaw said. That week is all about police officers and (LCPD Chief Argatha) Gilmore is giving us an opportunity to relax as far as our attire. The event is about us coming together that week and celebrating what the week means to us and enjoying the week togeth-er as a departmental fam-ily. We are thankful the community we serve and protect is thankful to have us here protecting and serving them. Anyone wishing to help the department in its celebration can call the departments Community Relations Unit, Audre Washington at 719-5742.

Mason Koger was airlifted to Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville after the mishap. Florida Highway Patrol officials said Susan Blizzard, the mother of the vehicles driver, Jack Blizzard, was charged with allowing an unauthorized minor to oper-ate the utility vehicle. Jack Blizzard, 14, lost control of the Polaris Ranger when approaching a corner on SW Zierke Glen. The vehicle tipped onto its side and threw Mason Koger to onto the pavement. Tyler Koger, 16, was also a pas-senger. Jack Blizzard and Tyler Koger were both wearing seat belts and suffered minor injuries. Mason Koger was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the incident, the FHP report said. If theres three people in the crowd, we might not perform as well. The theatres rendition of The Wizard of Oz coincides with the recent release of Walt Disneys prequel to the 1939 classic, Oz the Great and Powerful. Were optimistic that is this a more popular show, Hollingsworth said. The kids worked really hard, and it means so much to them that they have that support. This is their chance to shine. Mason Koger, who recently suffered head and facial inju-ries from an accident involving an all-terrain vehicle, was cast to play Uncle Henry in the production. He was at Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Masons one of the students who came in very shy, Lanette Strosser said. Ive seen his con-fidence in himself grow.

OZ: Young thespians to perform Wizard of Oz at FGC Continued From Page 1A TAX: Continued From Page 1Aand local business, then this all comes back to the need for a much simpler tax code, Yoho told the Lake City Reporter by email. Thats why Im a co-spon-sor of the Fair Tax. The bill got bipartisan support in the Senate but faces opposition in the House, where some law-makers regard it as a tax increase. Grover Norquist, the anti-tax advocate, and the conservative Heritage Foundation oppose the bill, and many Republicans have been wary of crossing them. Supporters say the bill is not a tax increase. In many states, shoppers are required to pay unpaid sales tax when they file their state tax returns. However, states complain that few tax-payers comply. Obviously theres a lot of consumers out there that have been accustomed to not having to pay any taxes, believing that they dont have to pay any taxes, said Rep. Steve Womack, R-Ark., the bills main sponsor in the House. I totally understand that, and I think a lot of our members understand that. Theres a lot of political dif-ficulty getting through the fog of it looking like a tax increase, he said. On Tuesday, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, declined to say whether the House would take up the bill, deferring to the House Judiciary Committee, which has juris-diction over the legislation. Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said there are problems with the bill but he did not reject it out-right. While it attempts to make tax collection simpler, it still has a long way to go, Goodlatte said in a state-ment. POT: Man allegedly ate evidence Continued From Page 1Astopped the vehicle Fennell was riding in for illegal win-dow tint. The remnants of the marijuana still clung to Fennells lips, alerting Foote to the presence of illegal drugs, the report read. Fennell allegedly told Foote he panicked and ate the drug. While patrolling US Highway 441, Foote noticed a white Ford Taurus with illegal window tint. Neither the driver, Willie Jernigan III, nor the passenger, Fennell, had picture identi-fication on him. Fennell didnt provide the correct Social Security number, and Foote asked him to get out of the vehi-cle. At that point, Foote noticed the marijuana on Fennells lips and on his white T-shirt, the report said. During a search of Fennells person, Foote found a small bag contain-ing remnants of the mari-juana. Fennell was charged with possession of drug equipment, possession of marijuana and evidence destroying. He was taken to the Columbia County Detention Facility but has since been released on $7,000 bond Jernigan was released after a vehicle search.

T he detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, was established in 2002 to hold the most danger-ous of those captured in what the George W. Bush admin-istration called the Global War on Terrorism. Controversy over the facility has simmered ever since. In recent days, it has begun to boil. One hundred detainees, at last count, are staging a hunger strike. Their lawyers, along with some self-proclaimed human-rights activ-ists, are insisting that the U.S. respond by closing Guantanamo, something President Barack Obama has long been eager to do. Questions seldom asked: How would that be accomplished? And what would it solve? Closing Gitmo would require moving out those now detained. Where would they go? We could transfer them to prisons in the United States, but is there anyone who seriously believes that once on American soil these detainees would become hearty eaters and happy campers? More likely, having learned that refusing food brings concessions, they would use that strategy again and again. U.S. prison officials would respond as have U.S. mili-tary authorities at Gitmo, letting the prisoners protest by not eating, but not letting them die -instead, restraining them, if necessary, and administering the nutrition their bodies require. In any case, the option of sending detainees from the detention facility at Guantanamo to prisons in America is moot for now because Congress, on a bipartisan basis, is adamantly opposed. In times of war, presidents have the authority to kill the enemy. In the past, those captured rather than killed were considered lucky. It makes no sense -legally, mor-ally, logically -to say that an enemy whom the president can kill with a drone or a SEAL team suddenly undergoes a metamorphosis (speaking of Kafka) transforming him into an innocent-until-proven-guilty suspect in a criminal inves-tigation if he is handcuffed rather than buried. And should our troops come to understand that anyone they capture rather than kill is likely to be pointing a gun at them again before long, they will be incen-tivized to use lethal force with increased frequency. Would that be preferable from a human-rights perspective? Final point: When Fisher referred to Kafka, he was doubtless thinking of The Trial, the story of a man arrested by a shadowy authority who conceals the nature of his crime. But Kafka also wrote The Hunger Artist, about a per-former who sits in a cage for weeks on end without eating. Eventually, the public loses interest in his art, and he dies unnoticed and unmourned. Im not suggesting that should influence U.S. policy. I am suggesting Fisher read it.

This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman Credit state Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth, with the most memo-rable quote of this past session of the Florida Legislature. I believe in the healing power of music, and if I want to drive down the street and heal everybody around me, I should be able to, Clemens said, while argu-ing against a proposed ban on loud noise from cars. Too bad Clemens, who is in a rock band, was not as interested in common courtesy as dispensing his personal brand of medicine. Thanks to Clemens and his Senate colleagues who voted against the reasonable bill, Floridians will have little defense against deafening music that is more likely to shred the psyche than soothe it. On a 19-19 vote, the Senate failed to pass legislation aimed at protecting citizens from inconsiderate drivers who play music loud enough to rattle windows, shake walls and disrupt neighborhoods. The measure, sponsored by Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, sought to restore a state-wide standard that banned loud noises from vehicles that could be plainly heard from 25 feet away or more. The state Supreme Court found the previous law unconstitutional because it contained exceptions for political and commercial broadcasts from vehicles. Simpsons bill covered all loud sounds from a vehicle and allowed police to stop violators and issue $30 citations hardly a crippling penalty, but one that would make a driver hesitate about cranking up the volume.... Deafening music is not only an annoyance to others, it can be dangerous, as Simpson pointed out. You may not hear ambulances coming in your car, he said. Simpson is considering pushing the law again next year, but may propose that it only be a secondary offense, where police would only ticket individuals for a noise violation if they were pulled over for another reason. That may be better than nothing, but lawmakers should see that allowing a vehicle to play bone-jarring music threatens the publics safety and peace of mind. No one should have the right to administer their blaring brand of healing medicine to unwill-ing patients. Lawmakers favor loud music over neighborhoods Would closing Guantanamo prison satisfy hunger strikers?

BY EMAIL: email@example.com Graceland visit is all about family journeyE ver since Elvis died in 1977 and his private estate in Memphis, Tenn., got turned into a public shrine, my sister has wanted to go to Graceland. She wanted me to go, too. She talked about it constantly. When she wasnt talking about it, she was thinking about it. Sisters can read each others minds. Her mind was set on Graceland. My mind was set on avoiding it. Bobbie was a teenager in crinoline slips five long years before I put on a miniskirt and shook a tail feather, so to speak, to the music of B.B. King. Elvis Presley was her music idol, not mine. Besides, Ive never seen much point in paying a visit to somebody when the chances are pretty good he wont be home. Its the same reason Im not keen on visiting cemeteries. But she kept talking about it. And I kept changing the subject. Sissy, shed say, rolling her eyes to heaven, I sure would love to go to Graceland. I know, Id say. I sure would love to lose 10 pounds. Finally, on her last birthday, I promised wed go to Graceland. When? she asked.Before we need walkers.Well, she said, looking at her feet, wed better do it quick. So last week, I flew from my home in Las Vegas of all places to my home state of North Carolina. I rented a car, spoke at two lovely events in Winston-Salem, and drove to my sisters house in South Carolina. She hugged me and fed me and let me sleep a while. Then Monday morning, we packed up the car, picked up our cousins (Sandy and Sara, who along with my sis-ter, like to call themselves The Dixie Hicks) and hit the road to Graceland -a round-trip adventure of 1,200 miles, four days, three nights, several hundred pit stops and a whole bunch of Cracker Barrels. I drove. They talked. We laughed. God smiled. Growing up, Bobbie and Sandy were members of the Bobbie and Sandy Club. They never let me join. Said I was just a baby. And Sara was only an infant. But we were all in the same club on this trip. Our mothers were two of nine sisters in a big, rowdy family that had more stories than a King James Bible. Weve spent our whole lives collecting those stories. Every time we get together, we take turns retelling this tale or that one, adding color and detail and embellishments galore, stitching them all together in a beautiful mess that defines and warms and covers our family like a tattered, patchwork quilt. In Nashville, we took pictures of the Grand Ole Opry House and debated our chances (slim to none) of getting inside to attend George Jones funeral. In Memphis, we walked along Beale Street, ate barbecue at B.B. Kings and listened to the King Beez play the blues. At the Heartbreak Hotel (yes, its down at the end of Lonely Street), we watched Elvis videos on a big-screen TV. Finally, on a fine spring day, we walked through the halls of Graceland from the living room to the Jungle Room to the grave where Elvis is buried -but we did not see the King. I thought I caught a glimpse of him once. He was leaning over my sister as she stood transfixed star-ing at an exhibit of the suit he wore the day he married Priscilla. Do you think I saw him? Im not sure. It mightve been a reflection on the glass. My sister was happy to see Graceland. My cousins and I were happy to see her see it. But the best part of the trip for me, and for all of us, I suspect, was the chance to spend 16 hours in a car together working on the family story quilt. I wish you couldve heard us.Sissy, said my sister, back home in her recliner, I sure would love to go to New York.

By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Florida A&M University announced Tuesday it is hiring a new director for its famous Marching 100 band, a major step to eventually relaunching the band that was sidelined by a 2011 hazing scandal. Sylvester Young, a FAMU alumnus and one-time director of the Ohio University marching band, is coming out of retire ment to rebuild The Marching 100. The band known for its marching appearances at presidential inaugurations and Super Bowls has been suspended since the November 2011 hazing-related death of drum major Robert Champion. Larry Robinson, interim president for FAMU, said he tapped Young for the job of rebuilding the band because he has the experience and strong discipline to help the school decide when its right for The Marching 100 to take the field anew. Robinson could not say exactly when that might be, although he called the hir ing of the 66-year-old Young a critical step. He did not rule out a return this fall. But he suggested that the band may come back initially as a smaller unit and play in the stands instead of performing one of its signature halftime shows. Theres a number of ways you could get to the fall without what we are accus tomed to, Robinson said. Young said he doesnt want to rush the band back on field, saying he will first ensure the culture of the band has changed. We just cant put them back on the field as if nothing happened, Young said after his hiring was announced. Young, who had marched at FAMU back in the s when it was led by Marching 100 founder William P. Foster, acknowl edged that hazing likely occurred when he was at school. He said Champions death has opened the eyes of many band directors nationwide about the need to crack down on hazing. Other schools are watching us very closely, said Young, who spent 21 years at Ohio University and also led bands at two other universities. FAMU hires band director
By MATTHEW PERRONE AP Health Writer WASHINGTON Indoor tanning beds would come with new warnings about the risk of cancer and be subject to more stringent federal oversight under a proposal unveiled Monday by the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA has regulated tanning beds and sun lamps for over 30 years, but for the first time ever the agency says those devices should not be used by people under age 18. The agency wants that warning on the devices and pamphlets, catalogues and websites that promote indoor tanning. And regu lators are also proposing that manufacturers meet certain safety and design requirements, including timers and limits on radia tion emitted. The government action is aimed at curbing cases of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, which have been on the rise for about 30 years. An estimat ed 2.3 million U.S. teenag ers tan indoors each year, and melanoma is the sec ond most common form of cancer among young adults, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Recent studies have shown that the risk of mela noma is 75 percent higher in people who have been exposed to ultraviolet radia tion from indoor tanning. While most cases are diag nosed in people in their 40s and 50s, the disease is linked to sun exposure at a young age. Physician groups have been urging the U.S. gov ernment to take action on tanning beds for years, cit ing increases in the num ber of cases of skin cancer among people in their teens and 20s. As a dermatologist I see the consequences of indoor tanning. I have to diagnose too many young people with melanoma and see the grief that it causes to these fami lies, said Dr. Mary Maloney of the American Academy of Dermatology, on a call with FDA officials. Maloney said the FDA action is an important first step, but that her group would continue to push for a ban on the sale and use of tanning beds for people under age 18. By LAURAN NEERGAARD AP Medical Writer WASHINGTON Weight-loss surgery such as the type that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie under went may not just improve peoples waistlines, but their health. Obesity causes or wors ens myriad health prob lems, from diabetes to heart disease, severe sleep apnea to arthritic knees. Christie has revealed that after struggling with his weight for 20 years and the reality check of turning 50, the desire to be healthy for his four children motivated him to have an operation called stomach banding. Hes doing the right thing, said Dr. Jaime Ponce, president of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. Hes at the age he really needs to address his problem, to live longer, in a better way, with a better quality of life. Specialists perform about 160,000 weight-loss operations a year in the U.S., according to a recent analysis by the surgeons group. Surgery isnt a pana cea, it isnt for everyone and some forms work better than others. Some questions and answers about the differ ent types: Q: What is the most common form of weightloss surgery? A: In the U.S., its gas tric bypass, sometimes called stomach-stapling. It generally results in the most weight loss. Doctors wall off a small pouch in the stomach, so that it can hold only a small amount of food. Then, they reroute that food past part of the intestine so the body also absorbs fewer calories. Q: How is stomach banding different? A: Its a less invasive operation, and unlike gas tric bypass, its reversible the band can be removed if necessary. Best known by the brand name LapBand, an adjustable band is placed around the stomach to restrict how much food someone can eat at one time. As initial weight is lost, the band can be tight ened. Typically, patients dont lose as much as with gastric bypass. Q: Are those the only options? A: The third major approach is called a gastric sleeve, which removes a large chunk of the stomach and thus cuts production of one of the bodys hun ger-stimulating hormones. Other, less used options including a complex opera tion called a duodenal switch that also involves rerouting food. Q: How well do these operations work? A: Over a year or two, weight-loss surgery can lead to loss of 50 percent to even 80 percent of the persons excess weight if they stick with a healthy diet and exercise. More important, research shows weight-loss surgeries can reverse Type 2 diabetes in patients who lose enough weight and keep it off. Gastric bypass causes the fastest weight loss, and stomach banding a more gradual loss. But patients dont always benefit enough to justify surgery. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality cited reports that within five years, up to a third of stomach banding patients arent maintaining their weight loss. You dont want some body to always drink milk shakes because theyre going to defeat the surgery over time, Ponce said. Q: Is surgery safe? A: Most are done lapa roscopically through small incisions and Ponces group says the risk of death is lower than for operations to remove a gall bladder or replace a hip. However, patients may suffer infection, blood clots, and broken or leak ing stitches or staples. After surgery, side effects can include vitamin defi ciencies as food is digest ed differently, and vomit ing as people learn to eat less and chew well. Gastric bypass patients also may suffer a complication that causes cramping and diar rhea, especially after eat ing sweets. The gastric band may slip out of place. Q: Whos a candidate? A: Generally, someone who is about 100 pounds overweight and has failed other attempts to lose. Doctors evaluate body mass index, a measure of weight for height. Candidates have a BMI of at least 40, or a BMI of 35 along with a weight-related health prob lem. For example, some one who is 5-foot-10-inches and weighs 279 pounds has a BMI of 40. In 2011, The Food and Drug Administration relaxed the rules for stom ach banding, allowing it for patients with a BMI as low as 30 who have a weightrelated medical condition. Weight-loss surgery can cost anywhere from $14,000 to $20,000; insurance tends to cover it for people who are sicker and more obese.

Chris Christie secretly underwent a weight-loss surgery in February, when a band was placed around his stomach to restrict the amount of food he can eat. Some methods more effective; all are expensive. ASSOCIATED PRESS The FDA announced Monday it wants all tanning beds to carry language warning people under the age of 18 about the risks of indoor tanning. Christies surgery highlights weight-loss options Tanning bed warnings proposed Delays in building VA hospitals reviewed Associated Press WASHINGTON Government audi tors told a House panel Tuesday that four veterans medical centers are taking on average about three years longer to complete than estimated and costing an additional $366 million per project.

By JASON STRAZIUSO Associated Press NAIROBI, Kenya More than 1 million babies die the day they are born every year, and the 14 coun tries with the highest rates of first-day deaths are all in Africa, according to a new report released Tuesday. Somalia, Congo, Mali, Sierra Leone and Central African Republic are the five countries with the high est rates of such deaths, according to the report Surviving the First Day from the aid group Save the Children. Health care for moth ers in sub-Saharan Africa is woefully insufficient. On average, only half the women in the region receive skilled care dur ing birth, the report said. The region as a whole has only 11 doctors, nurses and midwives per 10,000 peo ple, less than half the criti cal threshold of 23 gener ally considered necessary to deliver essential health services. The numbers in Somalia a country wracked by 20 years of violence with little established govern ment and few health ser vices are particularly grim. Eighteen out of 1,000 babies in Somalia die the day they are born, the report said. Five percent of newborns die within the first month of life and one in six wont live to age 5, it said. Whats worse, Somalia has seen absolutely no improvement in newborn or child survival in at least two decades, it said. Somali women have on average more than six children, the second-highest fertility rate in the world. Pre-birth care to expect ant mothers is largely not available in Somalia, said Dr. Omar Saleh, a World Health Organization offi cial who frequently travels to health facilities in rural Somalia. And then the natal care itself, which is delivery, some of the obstructed labors are delayed due to the long distances to medi cal care or insecurity or high prices of transport, Saleh said. And then after delivery the main thing is the availability of incuba tors. And the whole science of neo-natal care is a huge science that is not well developed in Somalia. The one positive: Everybody is working on it, he said. The good thing is that everybody is aware. In terms of absolute numbers, the most first-day deaths occur in India more than 300,000 per year, the report said. Nigeria has nearly 90,000 per year. Improvements in access to contraceptives, maternal nutrition and breastfeeding practices will save more lives, Melinda Gates, of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, wrote in a for ward to the report. Saving newborn lives will prevent incalculable suffering. It is also a vital piece of the global devel opment agenda. The longterm economic prospects of poor countries depend on investments in the health, nutrition and education of the people, particularly the women and young children living there, Gates wrote. Nearly all of newborn deaths 98 percent occur in developing countries, a statistic that underlines a widening gap between the health of the worlds rich and poor, the report says. A mother in sub-Saharan Africa, for example, is 30 times more likely than a mother in an industrialized country to lose a newborn baby at some point in her life, the report concluded. On average, one in six African mothers is likely to lose a newborn baby, a commonplace but largely untold tale of grief. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH WEDNESDAY, MAY 8, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 8AHEALTH TM Where you get the Best for Less!

By TIM KIRBY email@example.com FORT WHITE Fort White Highs football team scrimmaged on Saturday and is preparing for another scrimmage later this week. Fort White will host Columbia High in a spring game at 7 p.m. May 17, which will end spring prac tice for all the Indians. Because of the short spring, coach Demetric Jackson said the Indians would not have their tradi tional Red & Black game. Rather, Fort White will scrimmage after school on Thursday. The varsity and junior varsity teams will prac tice on Friday and have Saturday off before settling in Monday to get ready for the spring game. Jackson was pleased with Saturdays work, in what was the first day in pads for the Indians. It began with one-on-one hitting drills, after warm-ups and a talk on the proper technique for tackling. We did a little individual work, Jackson said. When you scrimmage, you may not focus on one player. In the hitting drill everybodys eyes are on the two players and you can see if they turn away from hitting. We have made it a tradition. You can find out a lot more about them. Jackson said the scrimmage consisted of 20 plays of varsity vs. varsity, then 15 with the JV before finishing up with varsity. I though it went pretty good to have that many guys show up that time of morning (7 a.m.), Jackson said. The effort was great. We generally try to go a little longer, but there was a lot going on. Weve still got a long way to go, but I was real pleased. Wayne (Gator) Exum II, a coach at Fort White since 2005, is heading the middle school. The team will prac tice today and Thursday and four days next week. From staff reports Lake City Middle School runners competed in the Florida Middle School State Championships on Saturday. Because of FHSAA rules, the state qualifi ers ran under the Sunny Runners track team. The top eight in each event received medals and all-state designation. Bridget Morse placed sixth in the 1,500 meters in 5:05. Bridget Morse also anchored the 4x800 relay team of Bernita Brown, Jillian Morse and Cassie Pierron that placed sixth in 10:42. The 4x400 relay team that placed seventh in 4:20 included Kersha Andre, Rachel Blanton and Brown. They were joined by a Sunny Runners teammate from Green Cove Springs. Emily Wintons placed 11th in the 100 meters, .05 from eighth place, and competed in the 200 meters. Pierron placed 10th in the 1,500 meters and Jillian Morse finished in the top 30. I was very proud of all our girls who competed, with six of them coming home with some hardware and all-state recognition, coach April Morse said.

DEAR ABBY: My husband came up to me after dinner, wrapped his arms around me and asked, Honey, is there anything we need to discuss? In his hand he held an envelope on which I had written your name and address. When I told him it was a request for a copy of your cookbooklet -not a request for marriage coun-seling -he was relieved. We have been cooking up a wonderful life togeth-er for 10 years. Somehow I managed to misplace your cookbook-let. I have read that there is now a set of two of them. Would you please give me the ordering instructions? Thanks, Abby! -JEAN IN RICHLAND, WASH. DEAR JEAN: I get a lot of letters like yours and Im glad to oblige. Once you start looking at Cookbooklet II you will see that a sweet tooth runs in my family. Many readers have told me the dessert recipes in my cookbooklets are great for entertaining, and actually save calories because they are divided among a greater number of people. The raw apple cake with caramel glaze serves 16! My booklets are sold as a set and can be ordered by sending your name and address, plus check or money order for $14 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby -Cookbooklet Set, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Remember, an apple a day keeps the doc-tor away, and this recipe requires five or six of them. (Think of the fiber!) My cookbooklet set contains more than 100 tasty recipes for soups, salads, appetizers, main courses and desserts that can be used when friends and families get together to cel-ebrate holidays and special occasions. I have been told by some readers that they have been used as the basis for Dear Abby-themed dinner parties. (The place cards were decorated with hearts and flowers, and the cen-terpiece was a bouquet of envelopes addressed to me.) P.S. Your husband sounds like a sweetheart. My mother once said the secret to a lasting marriage is a husband who lasts, so feed him well and he will. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I work in a skilled-care facility. I am also preparing for law school. Today one of my co-workers humiliated me in the presence of others by asking if I have been gaining weight. I giggled and said, Probably. She proceeded to say that I have gained a lot of weight in my fat face and told me to get on the scale so she could see how much. I told her its none of her business. She has done this to me and other co-workers before. Our supervisor likes her and doesnt rep-rimand her. How should I handle this? -GETTING IMPATIENT IN ILLINOIS DEAR GETTING IMPATIENT: Handle it by ignoring this unpleas-ant person and avoiding her whenever possible. So should any other co-worker she has offended. Any time she attempts to embarrass any of you, it should be reported to your supervisors supervisor -individually or en masse -because the failure to act on your concerns is allow-ing a hostile work environ-ment to exist. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Relax, gather infor-mation and plan to make changes, but dont act in haste. Bide your time and observe how others react toward you before you make an assumption or do something thats irrevers-ible. Respond responsibly. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Focus on projects or hobbies that you enjoy. A short trip will bring about new ideas and possibili-ties. Love is highlighted, so be sure to let someone you love know exactly how you feel. Greater stabil-ity should be your target. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep your secrets to yourself. The less informa-tion you share, the better. Take care of your legal, financial or medical issues and tie up any loose ends you might have with corpo-rations, institutions or peo-ple in charge. A positive change awaits you. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take on responsi-bilities and you will gain greater insight into the way others think and do things. What you may discover through helping others is how lucky you are and skillful when it comes to lending a helping hand. Love is highlighted. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Youll fall into a trap if you are too boisterous or generous with your time or money. Opposition and trouble can be expected if you are too open regarding your plans. A change of scenery will do you good. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Enjoy the company of others. Take a day trip and visit people who inspire you or share your interests. A geographical change will open up food for thought regarding your future prospects. Information about your family background will be beneficial. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Update personal papers. A real estate deal or property investment has great potential. Being diverse and offering your skills or services in unusu-al ways will open up new opportunities. A change will help you initiate plans for the future. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Nurture important relationships. Understanding the pluses you bring to any relation-ship as well as whats offered in return will help you build a solid, long-last-ing union. Love is on the rise and a romantic evening should be planned. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Uncertainty regarding an opportunity must not get you down. Instead, look at your options and prepare to make a move regardless of how your current situation unfolds. A change at home will benefit you emotion-ally and financially. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Put your home and domestic situation at the top of your list. Fix whatever needs fixing. Do whatever it takes to make your place more comfort-able and user-friendly. Planning or launching a garage sale will pay off. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Do whatever it takes to make you happy. A change at home or reverting back to someone or something you enjoying being with or passing time doing should be your goal. Back away from anyone you think might have ulte-rior motives. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Daydream, plan and follow through with actions. Let your imagi-nation lead the way and youll discover something you enjoy doing that can also bring in extra cash. Your intuition will not let you down. Love is in the stars. You must follow your heart. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
